FACIXG, as you are. the close of another school year, it sives us pleasure to 
extend you the best wishes of this bank and to congratulate you upon the success- 
ful conclusion of your studies. 

To those of you who graduate, we offer the hope that yimr business or profes- 
sional life will be happy and successful and that — wherever opportunity may take 
you — you will find good friends, good will and good fortune. 

We hope that most of you will decide to remain right here in Joliet for very often 
■ — as the "Acres of Diamonds" story so graphically shows — there are greater op- 
portunities close at hand than far away. 

But wherever fate and fame may carry you, we want you to know that you have 
in this bank a steadfast friend — a friend that will always be glad to hear from you 
and of you and that will hope you attain the highest goal of your ambition. 

To those of you who have not yet finished your course, we extend the hope that 
the vacation period may be in every way a happy one and that you will return to 
school next fall with new enthusiasm for vour work and with renewed love for 
old "J High.- 

And to all of you we give our heartfelt thanks for the many courtesies you have 
shown us in the past and assure you that we shall hope to be given the opportunity 
of serving vou in the future.

when llial sy-.teiii was cnierginsf from its

Perhaps you had never thought that in its 
varied stages of development and improvement 
our own high school might be compared to 
some great and magnificint example of tiie 
Iilaiil or animal kingdom, but it is thoroughly 
feasilile To compare il In some stately pine 
or liemlock would aflford a delightful display 
of a fertile imagination, but to satisfy the 
vanity of that liighly developed species of the 
animal kingdom, called niaii. it might be 
more pleasing to liken cuir iiislilntion and its 
growth to the structure .ind development of 
one of his closer relatives. 

Even in this enlightened age, there are 
some periods in the history of all prominent 
institutions which present a dark, somewhat 
hazy existence in the past and about which 
very little is definitely known. Such is the 

case witli tlie Joliet High School from 185S 
lo 1874 when the first class, consisting of 
ihrec girls, was graduated and when llie high 
sclioid classes were tatight, at times in the 
old KasUrn Avenue school and again, in 
rooms over tlu- old Cagwin Bank on Jefferson 
Street. From 1874-1879 neither graduates 
nor commencements are recorded, but since 
1879, each year has witnessed a successfnl school commencement in Jnliel. 

By 1882, the need for a high school Iniild- 
ing was voiced and soon met hv the erection 
of the old building on Chicago Street It 

was on the uiiper floor of Imilding that 
for some I en years the higli school classes 
were conducted. 

The old feeling of rivalry between the east 
side and the west side, still prevalent among 
some of our older residents, gave rise to ;i 
high school buildin.g west of the river in 1887, 
where the name "West Side School" 
was deeply cut in stone upon the front wall. 
There it still stands today, but its function as 
a high school long ago succtimbed to the 
law of the "survival of the fittest" and has 
lallen to the lowly state of a grammar school, 
taking on the less pretentious name of "Broad- 
way School." 

F.ven as early as 1892, a proposition for a 
township Iiigh school was submitted, but the

time did not seem ripe till almost seven years 
later when the high school had crowded the 
grade pupils out of the building on Chicago 
Street and even utilized the halls and ward- 
robes for class rooms. A state law passed 
shortly before that time, regarding the es- 
tablishing of township high schools, reguired a 
petition signed by fifty or more citizens to 
submit the question. A petition was duly 
drafted, submitted, and Siigned by the requi- 
Siite number and filed on February 21, 1899. 
Several months later as a result of the deci- 
sive vote of 2,725 to 329, the Joliet Township 
High School district was declared established. 

Shortly afterward, the citizens of Joliet so 
generously authorized several successive bond 
issuesi to insure the selection and purchase of 
a hiigh school site and the erection of a suit- 
able building upon it that the present high 
school building was completed and dedicated 
on April 4, 1901. 

That building, characterized by Andrew S. 
Draper, President of the Illinois University 
as "the finest high school building in Amer- 
ica," was at that time justly considered to be 
a super-structure. With its marvelous ar- 
rangement of laboratories, assembly hall, 
library, and museum, it was the pride of the 
community. The wonderful "breathing appa- 
ratus" or ventilating system and the spacious 

"arteries" or corridors of thiis herculean "pet" 
of the public were current topics of discussion, 
but to us who know it better much is amus- 

We cannot imagine an office barely larger 
than Dr. Smith's private sanctuary, especially 
on a Monday morning after a Friday after- 
noon's "ditching escapade." Neither could 
we very readily become accustomed to a 
gymnasium of a size of old 329, then called the 
"Basket-ball room." We should certainly like 
to have seen it or the Juniors' or Seniors' 
room, "both being designed to accommodate 
ALL of both classes" or the auditorium which 
"with! balcony seats comfortably 1500 people." 
We prefer not to meditate on their idea of being- 
seated "comfortably." Certain, it is, that the 
seating capacity lacks that number by at least 
five hundred. 

In ten years, the high school liad increased 
its enrollment from little more than 125 to 
almost 600 and had more than doubled its 
teaching force. No sooner was the new 
building complete than its growth multiplied 
by great leaps and bounds, so that five years 
later the student enrollment had grown to 
1000 and the faculty to thirty-eight. 

This growth was so marvelously rapid that 
in 1915 it necessitated the erection of an ad- 
dition on Herkimer Street almost half the 


size of the original liuiMiiit;. Even then, 
until the addition of 1921-2J somewhat reliev- 
ed the situation, the building was entirely in- 
adequate. Besides using three storage rooms, 
several wash rooms, the women's rest room 
and three rooms lighted by artificial light 
only, six outside buildings including churches, 
flat buildings and an ex-busincss l.ilock were 
also pressed into service. 

With the completion of tlie 1921-22 addition, 
many of the shops were moved into the new 
building, and a lunch room with a seating 
capacity of 800 and a supplementary lunch 
room for the teachers were incorporated on the 
fourth floor. In the very heart of the build- 
ing a new- gymnasium shines forth with a 
seating capacity of 2,000 and of 2,000 more by 
placing movable seats on the gymnasium 
floor and on the running track above, thus 
creating a convention hall rich in acoustic 
properties. Above the topmost seat of the 
permanent bleachers, is the indoor running 
track of fourteen laps to tlu' mile, making it 
one of the largest of it'^ kind in this section 
of the country. 

The erection of the last million and one- 
half dollar addition to our hiigh school has 
been the forward step to the realization of a 
dream of one great education system, directed 
by one group of executives and including a 
comliination of academic high school. Junior 
College, night school, continuation school, 
American.ization school, and vocational trade 

The academic high school has grown from 
a struggling, almost unknown institution to 
one of national reputation; from a school of- 
fering but one general course to a school ofifer- 
ing a dozen and several times that number of 
variations of the regular courses besides. 

Its English department has been built up 
to include in the majority of courses, three 
years of required English with electives of 
English or American Literature or Public 

Jspeaking in the senior year. More than five 
hundred students are taking advantage of 
the foreign language study which is directed 
by a corps of able instructors. The mathe- 
matics department ofi^ers three and one-half 
years of w'ork, including commercial arithme- 
tic, elementary and advanced algebra, plane 
and solid geometry and trigonometry. Its 
departments of Home Economics and Manual 
arts both ofTer excellent courses of the most 
practical value to students, while the com- 
mercial courses, established soon after the re- 
moval to the Jefifcrson Street building, are 
preparing scores of promising stenographers 
and book-keepers for the business world. All 
students are required to take Occupations and 
Civics, while the majority must take a year 
of world history and one-half year of Ameri- 
can history. Physical education is neglected 
for neither boys nor girls, both being pro- 
vided w'ith a suitable gj-mnasium. The 
Science department offers several one and 
two semester chemistry courses, botany, 
zoology, and biology, geography, physio- 
graph}', and physics. 

As early as 1901, special advanced courses 
in some of these sciences, particularly in 
chemistry and advanced physics were estab- 
lished and went to form the nucleus of the 
whole Junior College movement. These 
courses were follow'ed by others in higher 
mathematics, including geometry, college al- 
gebra and several additional chemistry cour- 
ses, literature and the modern languages. 
Within the next few j'ears, the Universities 
and colleges throughout the North and Middle 
West were accepting students from the Jun- 
ior College. Its name was officially estab- 
lished six j'ears ago, and in 1920 the work 
was reorganized on a more complete and 
sufficient basis. Since then its prestige has 
so increased that it has been recognized by 
the Central Association of Secondary Schools 
and Colleges as a successful enterprise.

Although the Junior College is a part of 
the high school to the casual observer, its 
work being conducted in the high school 
building, it has its own assembly, librarv and 
student regulations offering more privileges 
and greater freedom to the students than is 
possible in the high school. 

From an extended chemistry course, the 
college has grown to include courses of pre- 
commerce, literature and arts, insurance, pre- 
medical, pre-Iegal, household administration, 
teachers, industrial adminstration, chemistry 
and chemical engineeriing, electrical engineer- 
ing, railway electrical and railway mechani- 
cal engineering, railway civil engineering, 
municipal and sanitary engineering, and mech- 
anical engineering. 

Its enrollment, last year, showed an increase 
of approximately 25 per cent over that of the 
previous year, while an examination showed 
that about one-fifth of the enrolled Freshmen 
were non-resident, coming from high schools 
in Lockport, Plainfield, Manhattan, Morris, 
Providence, Pontiac and Wilmington, besides 
a number of students whose families have be- 
come residents of the city in order to take 
advantage of the unusual opportunities offered 
for securing a high school and^ Junior College 

Our night school is a miniature resident 
type of those glorified correspondence schools 
which guarantee to double your salary or pro- 
mote you from chief bottle-washer in the 
Snider's Catsup Works to the President of 
the New York Central in thirty days. Our 
school is much more modest in its claims, 
but it affords a chance for an extended meas- 
ure of specialization to the business worker 
or housewife. 

Most of the students enrolled have taken 
subjects relating directly to their work as a 
manner of improvement, and as a result the 
commercial course, mechanical drawing, and 
wireless telegraphy classes have usually been 
overcrowded, while all the classes in the do- 
mestic arts have been surprisingly well filled. 

For some time the State had felt the need 
to offer a part-time extension in various 
branches of the educational field to those of 

its children who were compelled to discon- 
tinue their education at an early age to go 
into the industrial world. It was seen that 
they would need not only academic work but 
vocational training as well, to better fit them- 
selves for their respective industrial pursuits 
and for their places in society. It was also 
found by experience that evening schools did 
not fully meet the need, for it was only the 
older and the most energetic and ambitious 
of the workers who would attend school after 
the day's work was finished. Thus, only a 
few were affected where the whole mass of 
the children from 14 to 18 years were expec- 
ted to benefit, and it was realized that if any- 
thing of any worth at all was to be accomplish- 
ed, attendance must be made compulsory and 
the time spent in school deducted from the time 
spent at work at the rate of eight hours per 
week and at a minimum of thirty-six weeks 
each year, between the hours of eight o'clock 
in the forenoon and five o'clock in the after- 
noon on all regular business days except Sat- 
urday afternoon. 

So, at the 1919 session of the Illinois Legis- 
lature, two laws were enacted that dealt with 
part-time or day continuation schools. In 
text these laws were elaborations of each 
other, but in substance they provided for the 
gradual inauguration of a system of compul- 
sory part-time schools until September 1921, 
but not to be outdone by six other cities in 
the state which had already established or 
were establishing such schools, the work was 
started in Joliet in September, 1920. 

From an enrollment of seventeen on the 
opening day, the continuation school has 
grown to include the part-time education of 
almost 600 students. Besides the academic 
subjects including reading, arithmetic, spell- 
ing, language, citizenship and geography of 
which all students are required to take four 
hours a week, the general commercial sub- 
jects including shorthand, bookkeeping, type- 
writing and rapid calculations are also offer- 
ed to both boys and girls. Specialization is 
offered to the boys in the industrial subjects; 
machine shop practice, auto-mechanics, car- 
pentry, and electrical work, while the girls 
are offered home economics, courses in sew- 



the Board of 
whose educat 
in their oarh 

ing. cooking, marketing", serving, or cleaning 
as tliey desire. 

At present three buildings near the High 
School, the May Apartments for commercial 
and academic work, the Elwood house for 
economics, and the Hacker building for the 
shop work have been utilized pending the 
erection of further additions to the main 

either eveninir classes -.imihir in jiurposc to 
those of the day continuation school, yet 
broader in practice, are those conducted in 
the Americanization school, maintained by 
Education. Giving to those 
11 was unfortunately neglected 
life and ti> our foreign born 
,ide range of courses including 
instruction not only in the elementary read- 
also in the fundamentals of local, state and 
national government, it has becoine an impor- 
tant factor in the educational system of the 
city. Owing to the wide range in the mental 
development, the previous education and the 
varying ages of the pupils, it has been neces- 
sarj' to divide them into groups beginning 
with the primary studies and ranging upward 
to liistory, geography and government. This, 
however, does not entirely solve the problem 
for the teacher, who must deal with scores of 
distinct personalities from perhaps five or six 
different countries. The greatest task is to 
offer besides an understanding of our lang- 
uage and customs, a welcome to their adopted 
land, America, and to stress the need of a 
proper respect due to that country from them. 

Attendance at this school and diligent ap- 
plication to the work brings the students a 
chance more quickly and easily to become 
real American citizens. "Diplomas," issued 
to those who pass a satisfactory test in civics 
and English after their second papers have 
been applied for, will make it unnecessary to 
take an examination in Civics and E'nglish in 
the Court House when the final papers are 

Through the first term of this school, the 
enrollment was increased from 170 to 325 and 
the attendance throughout was most excellent, 
considering that many of the men worked 
ni.ghts on alternate weeks and hence were 
ing and writing of the English language, but 
absent almost fifty per cent of the tiine. At 
the completion of the first year's work, nine- 
teen men were presented with "Diplomas", 
while thirty-nine received "Certificates of Ef- 
ficiency" which may be applied in the same 
manner as "Diplomas" in securing naturali- 
zation papers, with the exception that they 
may be applied only in securing the "second 

For almosl fifl_\" years, the jiublic schools 
in nearly all of the larger cities of the country 
have maintained regularly organized voca- 
tional training courses in connection with 
their ordinary academic courses, but although 
this has been found to provide very valuable 
and practical training in the manual or domes- 
tic arts, it has not been sufficient or extensive 
enough to allow any student following such 
a course to enter into any particular trade im- 
mediately upon graduation. 

It was felt that there was a greater need for 
a school offering purely vocational courses 
and afifording the student a practical prepar- 
ation in his chosen vocation. As a result 
such a school was established within our own 
great institution. Its students are as much a 
part of the high school as tliose taking the 
regular academic subjects with the exception 
that they are specializing in a certain chosen 
vocation and will spend an of three 
hours a day upon it. 

Practically all of the following types of shop 
work are now oflfered: Machine shop, elec- 
trical shop, atito mechanics, pattern-making, 
cabinet making, house carpentry, plumbing, 
sheet metal work, printing, and mechanical 
and architectural drafting; and it is planned 
with tuture additio.ns to the present extensive

Continued from 12 

buildings to ofifer more complete and still more 
differentiated courses. 

A manual training course in woodworking 
was perhaps the fore-runner of the whole 
vocational system of our school. Such a 
course was introduced in 1910 and met with 
instant approval of the students. It grew 
rapidly from a very few to alinost four hun- 
dred students and so far exceeded the capa- 
city of the equipment that it w-as necessary 
to incorporate it ,in the new woodworking de- 
partment of the vocational school, and it has 
come to include courses in patternmaking, 
cabinetmaking and carpentry. 

The plumbing and electrical departments 
are cooperating with this department in the 
most practical kind of work possible — the ac- 
tual erection of a modern home, the installa- 
tion of its complete plumbing system and 
finally the electrical wiring from service to 
fixtures. The mechanical drawing depart- 
ment, installed in large, well lighted rooms, 
is also supplied with the practical designing 
of various kinds of equipment used about the 
school and in the work of the shops. 

The machine shops and the automobile de- 
partment are building the best of foundations 
for the work of their students by presenting 
actual problems, which they may later meet, 
for class solution. 

The printing department, containing that 
is said to be "the most complete, up-to-date 
equipment of any public school in this coun- 
try", has already exhibited its value and abil- 
ity in the production of our school magazines 
and in continuing w-ill afford the finest prac- 
tice to its fortunate students. 

Thus, from an obscure existence, scarcely 
fifty years ago, has Joliet Township High 
School risen to a position among the foremost 
educational institutions in the courty. From 
an existence as of a minute speck of propo- 
plasm it has developed into a complex struc- 
ture of many "organs" and many "cells" and 
whether the cells be 315 or 301, you might be 
compared to an insignificant, yet quite neces- 
sary little speck of protoplasm within its cell 
world. Now then, aren't you proud?

In the death of Mr. E. G. Robb on March ISth the l)oys of the print shop lost 
an exceptional instructor anci a true friend, and the Johet Township Hijjh School 
lost a very valuable member of its teaching staff, a man who was an artist as well 
as a master craftsman, and a true friend as well as a teacher of higli qualitw 

Mr. Robl) was liorn in 1875 in Hamilton, Canada, and served his apprentice- 
ship as a printer with the Spectator of his home city. Printing was his life work, 
and he served in that capacity with a number of well known companies; The 
Journal, St. Thomas, Canada; K. R. Dcmnelly iv Sons, Chicago; Matthews, Xorth- 
rup of Buffalo, and others. 

In UU4 he entered the employ of Dunwoody Institute, Minneapolis, as in- 
structor of presswork, later becoming head of the printing department. In ad- 
dition to his duties as an instructor he was editor of the .Artisan, the Dunwoody 
school paper, a position which he filled with credit. 

Mr. Robb began his work at Joliet last September, with little ec|uipment and 
an unfinished building. Thru persistent effort the present print shop has been 
evolved, a monument to his ability and his effort. Xot among the least of his con- 
tributions was the service freely gi\en to the "j" staff. Drawing from his rich 
store of experience as a craftsman and an artist, and impelled by his deep personal 
interest in the "J", he inspired the staff to a vision of new and higher ideals. He 
was here but a short time, yet his influence was felt thruout the whole school and 
now remains as an inspiration in our memory.

Class History 1923 As Told In 1965 

. ■;■ Scene — Living 

-P^ (Grandmotlicr is discuvered Mated on the 

^'S'j stage writing a letter. She rises looking at 

^.<> her watch.) 

■^y Grandmother: \\'ell 1 must phone for that 

l;,( appointment with the hairdresser. I shall 

\\f have to look my best when I read my paper 

(,; before the Woman's Club tomorrow. (Goes 

back to desk.) I feel very well satisfied with 

' my paper now that it is finished. It's such a 

fresh and original subject (extends paper.) 
"The Shocking Decadence of the Morals of 
the Younger Generation." The shocking de- 
cadence of the morals of the younger genera- 
tion is indeed a source of great concern to 
those who contemplate it from a sane and' 
thoughtful view point with due consideration 
for the future welfare of our nation. Their 
manners are abominable. 

(Enter Jean, her granddaughter, disheveled 
and dust\' with a pilQ of dresses in her arms, 
a hat sitting dizz.ily on her head.' 

Granddaughter: So thejf are, but now >'ou 
know j'ou don't believe it. Saj', may I use this 
old junk for the Senior play? And look what 
I found when I was digging them out. Is this 
a year book when you went to high school, 
and what's this sloppy looking book? And 
this diary of yours. It's a scream! Just listen 
to this: "Bernice and Roy had a scrap today. 
Bernice is broken hearted and vows that she 
can never feel the same again, but she said that 
four times in the last month and so it will 
probably be all right by tomorrow." Xow 
isn't that funny! 

Grandmother: ^^"hy, that's about LeRoy 
Wilhelmi and Bernice Lowery. LeRoy was 
a very popular member of our class. He was 
class treasurer in the Junior year, and we 
elected him both semesters when we were 

Granddaughter: But oh look here! "Oh, 
it's so heavenly to be in love. He has the 
most marvelous ej'es, and his smile" 

Grandmother: That's enough. Let me 
have that hook. 

Granddaughter: (Looking at the year book) 
Oh, for heaven's sake is this scruldiy lookin.g 
bunch your class when you were Freshies? 
vSonie dumb looking bunch. 

Grandmother: Well we may look dumb to 
you but we were mighty proud of ourselves. 
There were about 400 of us, and we were an 
enthusiastic crowd. One of our members in 
writing the first Freshmen notes for the "J" 
— that was our school paper — was so enthused 
that he indulged in a flight of fancy, and said 
■ihat the Freshmen had more ofificers in the 
R. O. T. C. than any other class. I remember 
our girls lost in the baseball tournament that 
year, but we were all terribly proud of the 
way they played. 

Granddaughter: Only one baseball tourna- 
ment in a year?' A\ hy, we have one every 
week until the basket ball season begins. 
And didn't all of vou plav every dav like we 
Grandmother: No, not at "that time. When 
I was in high school girls' athletics were com- 
paratively new, and not nearly all the girls 
participated, but when I was a Freshman we 
organized a Girls' Athletic Association which 
had that in view. A great many of our Fresh- 
men girls joined and were very lively mem- 

ers 1 he a'.S(. nation was a great success. 
They boosted all kinds of athletics and gave 
clever parties. One year we had a Green- 
wich Village Follies and another a Tack and 
Jill party, and we all dressed in little'gingham 
aprons. Our girls were very enthusiastic 
about basket-ball, and in our Junior year we 
wori the class tournament. \Vhen we were 
Juniors \ye had soccer too. We played Lock- 
port, which was a small town then and not a 
suburb, as now. As I recall we won. 

Granddaughter: "J"-Board of Control— why 
this bunch doesn't look like it could control 

Grandmother: That was the group that 
managed the policy of the "J." I remember 
in our Junior year we had ;. . our representa- 
tives: Joe Barr, Flizabct!: :...wver, and Billv 

Granddaughter: C;,- ■■ ! I suppose you 
thought it would be ea.-y to make a board 
out of a Block. 

(jrandmother: Well, it's easier to make a 
board out of a Block than out of a block 
head. Bill was our first representative 
in athletics too. He was the only one 
of our felloAvs that made the football 
team in our Freshman year. It used to 
embarrass us giirls dreadfully to watch him 
play because he always had a hole in his sock. 
There was a biqr athletic boom during our 
four years. We 23ers always thought we had 
a lot to do with it. There were always more 
of us out to the games than from any other 
class and our fellows made a good showing 
in every sport. In our Sophomore year nine 
of our fellows made the football team and 
two new coaches came onto the scene, and 
though we didn't have much to do with get- 
ting them there we always took considerable 
credit to ourselves for being there at the same 
time they were, because they certainly helped 
to wake us up. 

Granddaughter: This must be one of your 
illustrious teams. Good heavens, what did 
they put on their hair? — it must have been 
mucilage to .get it stuck down so tight. Don't 
they look sweet! Did they take time out in 
a football game to comb it down slick and 
when they played basket-ball did they have to 
wear hairnets? 

Grandmother: ( )h, patent leather uphols- 
tery v\'as the st\-le, but our team had some- 
thing besides their hair to think about when 
they were playing. '21, that was our Junior 
year. Here are Liess, Ashley, Alberg, and 
De Jarld and Hill, and (Tardwell. },!uschott and 
Alaxwell. Thej' were all Juniors, and they 
were a hard fighting bunch: 

Granddaughter: (Turns page) Was this- 
your basket-ball team that same year? I 
guess they aren't so bad lookin.g even if they 
did spend their spare cash on mucilage? 
(Hands to grandmother.) 

Grandmother: I should say not. More 
than one femiuiine heart did gymnastics in 
space when they grabbed the title from Gard- 
ner in the tournament that year. (Turns the 
page) And this was our flashy baseball teanr 
of that year. 

Granddaughter: Oh, isn't he a cute little 
fellow? What a darling grin! 

Grandmother: Oh, that's Steve Resan; he 
was cute. It was always a sure of Spring:

M. CATES ASST. COACH (Football) 

W. L. KIRBY ASST. COACH (Football) 


Joliet Higli School lias at last reached its 
standard. The school and town fully realize 
now that we can turn out just as good a team 
as an}- High School in the "Big Seven" and 
better. Not alone that we can. but we did, and 
our team proved it both on field and court by 
their success. The students and townspeople 
also showed wonderful support by the number 
tliat attended games during the football and 
basketball season. 


It is the odor of the pig skin that puts blootl 
into the young athlete's eyes, as he grasps the 
oval and streaks down a broken field 20 to 30 
or 40 yards for the winning touchdown. Not 
alone that, but there is a certain magnetic 
power attached to the game that makes any 
red-blooded athlete love the game. This game 
of football is one game that only red-blooded 
athletes should play and not loafers. 

Previous to last fall's football season, the 
Coach could not say with effect that one of his 
boys was "loafing" on the job, for the youth 
knew he could play regardless of what the coach 
might have to say, for there were no sidjstitutes 
111 take his place. However through the Coach- 
es' efTorts and those of the Rotary Clubs, a 
change was finally brought about. They made 
the students and townspeople realize their mis- 
takes and managed to persuade them into be- 
lieving and feeling that Joliet could have just 
as good teams as any other school in the "Big 
.Seven." The reward Avas wonderful to be- 
hold, for the first day of football practice saw 
84 candidates in uniform on the field. The 
.\ear before, five players reported the first day. 
From these eighty-four thirt\-five were selected 
to form the heavy-weight squad; the remainder 
were left to the light-weight division. Tt was 
indeed rather pleasing to the ci-aches to be 
alile to pick their teams from such a 
number of boys. 

Limlblooni"— 24 Toliet--0 

Joliet's first game, after two weeks of h.ird 
practice, was played with Lindliloom High 
School, one of the best high school teams in 
Chicago. Joliet went into the encounter a bit 
green and outweighed. Lindbloom ran the 
score up to 24 to Joliet's in the first half, but 
in the second half Joliet came back and fought 
the heavy Chicagoans scoreless. Lindbloom won 
the game 24 to 0. 

Kankakee — Joliet— 22 

-\fter another hard workout on the grid, 
Joliet journeyed to Kankakee for another 
practice game. Kankakee's field was a bit 
rough and dusty. Sand storms were the indi- 
cations that another Kankakee man was bein.g 
downed, or another Joliet man doing the 100 
yard dash for another touch down. iBefore the 
last quarter ended, the third team had been given 
a chance to perform and also succeeded in hold- 
ing the Kankakee warriors scoreless. The .game 
ended with Joliet far in the lead 22 to 0. 
De Kalb— 16 Joliet— 7 

The following Saturday our first game of the 
"Big Seven" was played against De Kalb on 

our field. J.iliet iiiusi have been all ]in|-fcd up 
over the game at llu- "nutty city" for they did 
not show up very good in the first frav and be- 
fore they knew it De Kalb had 16 points to their 
credit. However, in the last quarter Joliet got 
the spirit and pushed over a pointer, but it was 
too late, the game ended soon after with De 
Kalb 16 to Joliet's 7. This was the li.ght's first 
game. They showed up to he quite clever and 
speedy though some of the plavers were ver\- 
light. They defeated De Kalb's ponies 7-0. 
The score also indicates the kind of game 

A week later to Rockford Joliet journeyed for 
the second game of the conference. Rockford 
seemed to believe in old traditions, tor they 
had Joliet fi.gured out to be the weakest team in 
the conference and were all set for a walkawav. 
Our ponies slipped over a fast one by holding 
the Rockford team scoreless and besides plaved 
a brilliant game and Averc for the best of the 
teams. However, the necessary weight was not 
there to push over a touchdown. The second 
game of the day was a complete surprise. The 
Joliet warriors smashed into the Rockford 
heavies and slackened not once to the final 
w-histle. The Joliet ends smashed the running 
plays centered about ^Nliltniore. (the fastest man 
on the team) ever\- time, and went down on 
punts in good shape. Frank Leiss was the main 
co.g on the left side with his partner Laverne 
Dejarld quite his equal on the right. Near 
the end of the first half the Rockfords succeed- 
ed in edging us over by a narrow margin. How- 
ever, the fight never left the Gold' and Blue 
warriors, for on the kick off of the second halt 
AJcGinnis caught the ball from quarter back 
position and with the aid of perfect blocking by 
his teammates he succeeded in going 9.S yards 
for a touchdown. Corrie failed to kick the 
goal which still left Rockford in the lead 7-6. 
During the rest of the game the ball changed 
hands many times and on one exchange Jean 
Lordan, the little halfback, lioutted the oval 
for 80 yards, one of the best kicks made in school in years. The ganu' ended witli 
Joliet in possession of the ball on R'lck ford's 
territory — Rockford the winner. 

West Aurora — 3i Joliet — fl Heav\- 
West Aurora — Joliet— 2.t Light" 

Then another week of mending up the bruis- 
ed players and more hard work in preparation 
for the West High game on Joliet's field. 

Our lights in the first game of the day, romp- 
ed away with the great margin on the West 
Boys. They completely outplayed the fast West 
High in every branch of the game, Jim Lordan 
running for big gains at will. The second game 
was ver\- different indeed. Besides a wet field 
and more rain occasionally, the Joliet boj'S did 
not hit their studs. Probably the previous Sat- 
urday's game made them a bit confident, any- 
way they failed to come thru. 

The game ended with West High's well de- 
cided victorv. 33-0. 

Freeport— 18 Joliet— 6 Heavy. 

Freeport —0 Joliet— 7 Lights 

Now for that Pretzel vs boys game. 
"No time for rest now," was the only answer 
from the Coach for another week. "You play- 
ed like a bunch of ostriches with your heads 
in the sand while the battle ra.gcd on."

but not half as much as our boys. Our hghts

but'the Tinx must have been left in for when 
Joliet had but a yard to go ne;ir the beginning 
of the game, there caiue a fumble and that 
seemed lo decide the victory. There had 1)een 
some changes in the lineup which seemed to Ije 
ett'ective, but things seemed to go against the 
buvs. The game was won on forward passes, 
loiiet, however, sc .red near the end of the 
game, but it was loo late; the game was called

The lights however were outplayed and fail-

Aurora seemed to ha\ e things ^all their way 
however and won Ijy 6 points, lo-6. 

The heavyweight game was a heart-breaker. 
The teams were even matched and of about 
the same weight. Joliet time and time ag:im 
threatened to score, and in the second rpiarter 
Utter, the lightest heavy weight end in the con- 
ference, picked up a fumble ount and r;iu over 
half the length of the field fur Joliet's touch- 

down. The try for point was missed by a few 
inches. Ever\thing now seemed to go our 
way until but a few minutes to play when a very 
doubtful foul was called which resulted in 
Aurora's touchdown. They kicked goal with 
about I'j minutes to play. The end of the

Kow for real 

Elgin was our last confi 
played on their field. 

Our lights seem to adopt our heavies' fancies 
of letting the score be run up hefiire the\- woke 
up and as a result they lost 1)\- a 6 point mar- 
gin of 13 to 7, 

But something happened. Our heavies cer- 
tainlv redeemed themselves. At the beginning 
of tlie game the heavy Elgin thought of world 
desires." but alas, that little end. Utter scored 
again bv receiving a neatly passed ball from 
Corrie, who also made the try for point. Joliet 
tackled hard and viciously all through the 
game, -\s the game came to a close, Elgin 
started to forward pass and succeeded in catch- 
ing one for a costl- gain, its completion due 
partly to darkness. However, a few minutes 
later a short run and dive netted them a irarrow- 
Iv gained touchdown. They failed the try for 
point and lost the chance to tie the score. The 
game ended with Joliet the possessors of 7 
and the opponents the 6 this time, 

.\s a celebration of the event, the "Jmx" was 
burned at Richards' field the following Tuesday, 
It certainly seemed to be a success, for a few 
davs later the teaiu journeyed to Morris and 
dridibed the undefeated team of the town by a 
score of 6-19, and the next Saturday they took 
on the heavy Danville teaiu and defeated them, 
the heavvweights's first win on the local fioH. 
Toliet scored 9 to Danville's 7.

Thanksgiving day marked Jolict's last .ganio in 
which 8 heavyweights were goin.g to play their 
last game, among ihem were Captain Harry 
Corrie, Frank Leiss, Laverne Dejarald, Leigti- 
ton Alberg, Merideth CardwelL Leo .McGinnis, 
Charles Lewis and Leroy W'ilhelmi. 

Tilden Tech, SchooL one of the strongest 
contenders for the Chicago Championship, was 
to lie Joliet's opponent on the Turkey da\-. 

The teams seemed to be about evenLv matclied. 
lint JoHet tore madly through them time and 
time again. Tilden once neared Joliet's goal 
and tried for a drop kick and made it from a 
brief angle. The half ended Joliet' — Tilden 3. 
The second half was carried on mostly in mid- 
field until near the close of the game when 
Joliet's full back Cardwell tore through for a 
big gain and was stopped but 3 yards from the 
goal. On the next play Joliet lost the ball. 
It seemed hopeless, but the Tilden bouter was 
a bit slow on Joliet's fast ends, for one reached 
the kicker and blocked the kick and recovered 
the ball but a few yards from the goal. In- 
juries, however, forced him from the game, but 
the Joliet team received new life, and pushed 
over a touchdown and made the try for point. 
The game ended with Joliet gaining ground 
steadily and fast, Joliet winners again and it 
was the last .game of the season ; 7-j.

Basketball, 1922-'23 Season 


Earlville— 27 Joliet— 26 

The Blue and Gold basket warriors opened 
their tossing season with good offensive work. 
Tliey held the lead throughout practically the 
whole game, but because football tactics were 
not quite forgotten. Joliet fouled again sending 
Kossert to the free line once more, and the 
little fellow "put it through" just as the time 
keeper's whistle went off giving Earlville the 
game by a 26 to 27 score. 

JoHet— 16 Coal Citv— 15 Light 

Joliet— 28 Coal City— 10 Heavy 

By December 29, Joliet had hit her stride. 
The heavies gave Coal City a run 46-15, while 
the Lights made them step to 28 to 10, after 
the regulars in both teams started the sailing 
safe. All the lightweight and heavyweight re- 
serves were given a chance to do their "bit" in 
the contest. 

Joliet— 15 Tdden— 13 Light 

Joliet — 13 Tilden — 7 Heavy 

The Tilden cage men. were a little surprised 
when both our Heavies and Lightweights took 
the game of December 30 awaj- from them. 
At the half, the lights were stepping along at 
fidl speed pointing their score 6 to 12. Later 
in the game the Tilden forwards tried to hurr.\ 
it up a little, but were unable with the peppy 
little "guards" the lights have. So once more 
Joliet Lights copped the big end of the score. 

Our rangy tossers annexed another winning 
to their list b>" a 13-7 score, the whole team 
going strong as a result of good coaching. 
Well, Joliet was glad, and Tilden a trifle mad. 

Joliet— 19 Englewood— 16 Light '^ 

Joliet — 26 Englewood — 16 Heavy 

Chicago must have had a jinx in their pocket 
for the Blue and Gold warriors trounced them 
every time. On January 5, Englewood stepped 
down for their share of defeat, never dream- 
ing of it, when it was rumored around they 
were going strong for the Chicago league 
championship. But Cramer's men showed up. 
ending the little combat with a 26 to 10 victory 
although the game was hot for the first three 

The lights showed up b.\- their grand defense 
and basket shooting, making the game one 
long battle all the way through. The gong 
sounded with a 19-16 victory for our ponies. 

January 12, the opening of our conference 
season, w-ith the gloom of making up tests for 
the quarter, the boys started for the north. 
Their destination was a "cracker box" gvm at 
De Kalb. The lights started the fight at 7:30 
o'clock, but they couldn't uplift their handicap, 
thereby dropping a victory to De Kalb with 
21-9 score. 

Our grand heavies, lost their adaptability for 
small spaces that night ; toward the end of the 
game after the score 19-20 in our favor. De Kalli 
hit a "hot streak." We lost the game with a 
score of 23-20. 

Joliet — 19 West Aurora— 11 Light 

Joliet— 24 West Aurora— 23 Heavy 

Ah, Joliet Fans, will you ever forget the night 
we all piled over to West .\urora by the street 
car, by the automobile, and "w-hat not" full 
Band an' everything? The Aurorians met our 
ponies and how they did "rant and rage" over 
that floor I ! Why they even tried a whole new 
team on our little men, but of no avail, for 
the> went home a 19-11 victory. 

And how Coach Cramer's boys did rage 
around that floor! Why it looked more like a 

football game than a basketball game. We think 
Aurora forgot Joliet also shined on the gridiron, 
and no rough stuff" would affect us ! However, 
the game ended with a 12-21 score : so then 
they played ten minutes' overtime, and right 
snappy it was. Then a nice one was trapped 
by the sturdy hand of a forward — BANG! 
went the gun, and our tiger like men pranced 
oft' the floor with a 24-23 victory. 

Johet— 11 Rockford— 28 l.iuht 

Joliet— 12 Rockford— 34 Heavy 

The furniture city boys invaded Joliet for the 
first home conference game. The well seasoned 
lights from the north copped the first game by 
a 28-15 score, their center starring six field 

Don't think the Blue and Gold Heavies didn't 
give these boys a run in the first half. For 
they held them 10-9 in Rockford's favor, but 
the boys could not keep the pace set by the 
veterans and dropped the game by a 34-12 
score ; Gleichman, Kulberg and Behr, veterans 
of three seasons, did their share of scoring. 
Joliet— 29 Ottawa— 7 Heavy 

( )n January 27. (Ottawa leaders in the Illinois 
\'alle\- Conference, were our ne.xt victims. The 
valley boys could not get their bearing through- 
out the game. Joliet was in perfect order. It 
was a one sided affair in the second half. Then 
the reserves did their bit. The final score being 
29-7 in our favor. 

Lindbloom — 10 Joliet — 16 Light 

Lindbloom — 16 Joliet — 21 Heavy 

From the southern section of Chicago, Lind- 
bloom. a fast team journeyed down for a twin 
bill with our tossers. Our lights came out 
victorious because they led their opponents 
throughout the game, and because our star 
guard held Witaskas. rated as one of the fast- 
est floor men in the Chicago league. 

Heavies put over a pretty snappy game, be- 
cause Cramer changed the lineup causing the 
score to tie 11-11, but wdien it was changed back 
all went well, causing Joliet to put up another 
victory. 21 -It). 

Joliet— 31 Blue Island— 6 Heavy 

Cramer's men then met Blue Island the im- 
defeated team in the Chicago suburban league. 
However, the Blue and Gold had an easy time 
of it from start to finish. Their plays went off" 
to a "tee," by the half, we were leading 24-2. 
In the third quarter the reserves entered mak- 
ing the final score 31-6. 

!•:. .\urora— 12 Joliet— 24 Light 

E. Aurora — 8 Joliet — 24 Heavy 

Then E. Aurora journeyed over, and we just 
had to treat them rough. The ponies were in 
great form, getting a good lead, keeping it, 
causing the score to end with us owning the 
big share, 12-24. 

Then the Heavies pranced on them, Cramer's 
men were not to be stopped, so out-played the 
visitors to a frazzle. The forwards were assist- 
ed in basket tossing by one of the guards who his stride that night. E. Aurora went home 
that night with a 8-24 defeat. 

W. Aurora— 12 Joliet— 18 Heavy 

W. .\urora -wasn't satisfied with their first de- 
feat by the Blue and Gold. They were sure 
if they had a return game, they w-ould show us, 
so again came. Fletchers' heavyweights had a 
good game; they gave our five a nice snappy 
game, but our forwards were strong, and the 
guards firm, with the result the W. Aurora 
hopes fell again with a 12-18 score.

of the Lane offensive and sprinkled the rest of

< lur last team to meet in the finals was Kan-

free throws. Then Joliet loosened up with

Johet was superb; she absolutelv out-classed 
her opponents in every stretch of the games in 
the 1 ourney. She was a whirl wind o^n a bas- 
ket-ball floor. Joliet scored 02 points to her 
opiionents 42. 

Pace Eighty-si: 


The Sectional Tournament took place March 
9 and 10, and it was during this tourney that 
all Joliet realized that a new spell was cast over 
Joliet people over athletics. Real fight, cour- 
age, and that never give in spirit predominated 
from the time our warriors entered the floor, 
till they came off either in victory or defeat. 

W. Aurora— 14 Joliet— 17 Heavy 

Friday afternoon after school, with the gym 
crowded with enthusiastic support, the Blue and 
Gold entered against Fletcher's crew for the 
third time of the season. The game was a fast 
orie, but Joliet could not be downed; she forg- 
ed on ahead. Her forwards responding to 
chance. Her guards ever alert, as a result 
Joliet came out victorious in her first game of 
the Tourney. 

Elgin— 12 Joliet— 17 Heavy 

Our second game called Saturday morning at 
9 :30 o'clock. Some were a little frightened, for 
the Elgin Cagemen had trimmed us once and 
what now? Again the gym was jammed, and 
again the fighting warriors pranced on, with a 
spirit to do or die. Elgin's scoring guard was 
guarded so close he didn't know what struck 
him. With this, Elgin was lost, and the Blue 
and Gold w-as going hot and strong, the score 
at the half being 14-7. In the next half Elgin 
managed to score 5 points but that was not 
enough — Joliet was again winner 12-17. 

Rockford— 15 Joliet— 10 Heavy 

Over 4,000 people crowded into the gym to 
watch the semi-finals of the state basketball 
championship. The gym was just one pan- 
demonium of noise. Joliet's w"arriors entered 
that big g;ame Saturday night with an aljsolute 
will to win. And it showed up for when the 
quarter gun sounded, Joliet was leading 5-2. 
She was fighting and holding out against that 
giant and brutal force. Then costly personal 
fouls gave Rockford points, but Joliet clung to 
the lead. The strong guarding of Joliet, again 
and again broke up the Rockford combinations, 
when the half gun sounded we were still in 
the lead 6-4. 

Joliet tried to keep the ball in the center of 
the floor, knowing Rockford was a short pass- 
ing team. When the second half started the 
terrible pace was telling on our team, and 
Rockford sensing victory was ready to strike 
the fatal blow. .Another basket loliet in lead 

Then came a series of heart breaking events. 
Foul on a guard, and then another foul. Joliet 
leading b.v only one point. Then a basket for 
Rockford, they held the lead for the first time 
after nearly three-quarters of play. Score 9-8. 

Long shots were tried by our forwards but 
missed. Then the Rockford players fought 
down the floor. Joliet's smaller players were 
exhausted. In the last few minutes of play 
the giants of Rockford won their game. Score

A'ou've heard of their fame 

And the marvelous game 

They played through the whole of the season. 

For "Peanuts" Girard 

Was a wonder at guard 

With Corrie at pivot position ; 

While "Jocko" and "Mac" 

Led the attack 

And Leroy smashed up plays with decision ; 

Troughton at center. 

The .game oft w'Ould enter 

And kept up his end cf the play. 

And Blotnick at guard 

Fought loyally and hard 

For the team in a captainly way. 

Keeley though new 

Sunk quite a few 

Whenever he got in the fracas; 

With their sw-ift winning ways 

And keen clever plays 

Alighty few are the teams that excel us. 



l.l'.KO^- WII.HI'J.MI 

To an ijuUi.lcr, LeRoy WilhcliuiV rise into 
a place- of kadcrsliip in our scliool may sccni 
like that of a mushroom springing up in a 
night, but to those of us who have had the 
privilege of sympathetic observation it is 
rather the splendid growth of the slender sap- 
ling into the sturdy oak. For two years we 
knew him only as a rather retiring, brainy 
chap, leading the honor roll, and outstanding 
only in his classes where keenness of percep- 
tion and efficient use of an extraordinary na- 
tive intelligence marked him as one of those 
who excel in the group. Coming out for basket 
ball in his Junior year, his steady, deter- 
mined efforts soon won him a place on the 
reserve squad. A wonderfully retentive mem- 
ory and constant alertness made him an apt 
candidate, and by the end of the season he 
had done his share in the goodly number of 
games. In baseball, previous experience made 
his showing more lirilliant. It was immedi- 
ately evident that he had "a good arm," and 
throughout the season his pitching was of 
high order as was his work in other depart- • 
ments of the game also. The opening of the 
football season found him with an established 
reputation as an athlete but no experience in 
that sport. The same determination and 
keenness that so early won for him a place 

on the basket squatl, placed him in a wing 
position where the speed and drive and bril- 
liancy of his playing caused fans and critics 
to acclaim him as "one of the best ends that 
ever represented the blue and gold." His 
second season at basketball showed him to be 
a guard whose superior it would be hard to 
find 'in high school circles; and it will take 
many years to erase from the memory of 
Toliet fans some of the thrills he furnished 
for them. In ihe absence of baseball this 
spring lie went out for track. It is probably 
sufficient indication of his ability in this sport 
to state that in his first meet he bettered the 
conference record for the javelin throw by thir- 
teen feet and one inch besides showing up 
well in other events. 

Aside from the record of the participation 
in athletics the list of his activities is longer 
than that of the average student. He has 
consistently maintained a place on the honor 
roll for four years, and has an average of 
eighty-five for this year. He is president of 
the Senior class and of the Blue and Gold 
Clul>. a member of Ihe Boys' Chorus and the 
ITigh School Glee Club for" which he last year 





Ray Rafter, Joliet's lightweight honor ath- 
lete is one of those men whose excellent per- 
formances in all lines are accomplished with 
such quiet efficiency and modesty that they 
are not always fully appreciated. His en- 
trance into high school athletics occurred last 
year when he reported for track. He early 
showed promise of greater things. In the 
fall he came out for football where his fight 
and determination soon made him, in the 
phraseology of one of his team mates, "one 
of the most dangerous ends playing confer- 
ence football." Always playing a steady, con- 
sistent fighting game rather than one of oc- 
casional and publicity-attracting flashes, he 
was one of the most important members of 
the team. Because of this very consistency 
it is probable that the student body as a whole 
did not give him the praise and esteem due 
him; but it is apparent that his fine ability 
was appreciated by the men who teamed with 
him for they have elected him captain for 
next year. The leadership of a man of Raf- 
ter's character and fighting spirit materially 
adds to the prospects for next season. His 
playing on the lightweight basket ball team 
was of high order and of much the same 
character as his work in football. He was 
ever a man on whom coaches and rooters de- 
pended to meet and conquer every changing 

demand of the game. Again he did not re- 
ceive all the honor that should have been ac- 
corded, for his never wavering spirit and high 
standards of play cannot be praised too highly. 
In track his showing is splendid, his time m 
the 440 sprints proving him one of the best 
men over that distance in the conference. 

His dependable loyalty is manifest not only 
on field and court but in class room and in 
friendship as well. He has been on the honor 
roll his entire three years; and he is at pres- 
ent a member of the Student Teacher Coun- 
cil. He coached the Freshman basket squad 
and is always a loyal supporter of school en- 
terprise. He is of course a member of the 
Blue and Gold Club and was a sponsor for 
visiting teams during the tournament of this 
year. " He has maintained an average of 
eighty-six and a fraction for this year's work. 
Only' in his junior year he has probably not 
reached the Zenith of his ability as athlete or 
leader, and Joliet High is fortunate in having 
him among her returning students. His un- 
assuming attitude, his good sportsmanship 
and fine co-operation, his loyalty as friend 
and teammate and his determination and 
fighting spirit make him a most worthy re- 
cipient of the name of honor athlete and a 
man whom we are proud to claim as a fellow

Girls' Athletic Association 

We have come to the close of an exceptional- 
ly successful year for the Girls' Athletic Asso- 
ciation. A suimuary of our activities and good 
times would l)e merely a song of praise and 
glory for our illustrious organization. 

Earh' last fall about seventy aspiring hocke\' 
and soccer players reported for practice; but 
owing to the fact that it was impossible to get 
permission to use the Richards Street Field all 
their dreams of prowess vanished, and their air 
castles w ere shattered to the ground. 

Basket ball practice began with ihe opening 
of the new semester in January. One hundred 
twenty-five .girls turned out to do honors for 
their classes. 

Girls' Basket Ball tournaments have always 
been successful in J. T. H. S.. but no tourna- 
ment has > et been staged which could hold a 
candle to the 1923 tournament. 

The Juniors, true to tradition, copped the 
honors of iirst place by eliminating the Seniors 
in a one-sided .game, the score of which was 
33-15. and then disposing of the Sophomores by 
a count of 16-14. 

The Seniors endeavored to <'lface their in- 
jured dignity by trampling on the toes of the 
innocent Freshmen. This score was 32-S. Af- 
ter this game the Seniors felt confidence 
in themselves to warrant the risk of challeng- 
ing the Sophomores for second place, as the 
score of the Freshmen game was onl.\- 25-11 in 
favor of the Sophomores. However, the under- 
classmen didn't see fit to accept the above chal- 
lenge and therefore, there is still a difference of 
opinion concerning second place. 

The baseball recruits, one himdred forty in 
all, are doing fine and the annual class base- 
ball ccutest is scheduled for the later part of 
"Slay or the first of June. 

Our tennis tourney is also due, aiul will be 
staged as soon as our courts have been thor- 
oughly overhauled and repaired. 

Besides these athletic affairs we had a great 
many social successes. On November 26 of 
last fall we had a party to welcome in the 
new Freshmen. It was held in the Girls' Gym 
and as popcorn balls and taffy apples were 
served we were all very sticky, as well as hap- 
py when we departed for our respective abodes. 

December 12 was the date of our annual 
Mother and Daughter Tea. It was at this en- 
joyable affair that we chose our Sponsors. 
Thev are as follows : Mrs. .Sawvcr, Mrs. Barr, 
Mrs. Carter, Airs. Hill, and Mrs. Weeks. 

The first party given in 1923 was arranged by 
the Sophomores. The Sophomores saw to it 
that we had a good time. 

And then our BIG PARTY was announced 
for .-\pril 6. True to traditirn this part\- -vvas 
one of the biggest events of the school \-ear.

How everyone locked forward to that party! 

As usual the G. A. A. Dance was "some 
thing different." It was a Jack and Jill al'fair. 
We had a record crowd, 'rhe girls all looked 
exceptionally pretty in sunbonnets and aprons, 
while the boys looked rather foolish and coun- 
trified in their overalls and slr.iw- bats. The 
programs looked like \\ i oil pails. Imt wni- 
really paper. The frapjie was scived in tm 
cups by the original Jacks and Jills, .\ 
crackers and lolly-peps were iiuicii in e\ idenee 
throu.ghout the evening. 

We don't wonder that 
to G. A. A. parties. In f 
if they didn't. 

The Illinois League of 
ciations met in Highland Park. Chici 
.April 13. The Joliet representatives wei 
Phoebe Ann Henderson and .Mar> Barr, our 
local president. 

The conference was for the purpose of elect- 
ing officers for the League. Mary Barr, Joliet, 
was elected president. The Vice President is 
Miss Pauline Knapp of DeKall), The Secre- 
tary-Treasurer is Miss Elizabeth Waterman. 

Supt. Smith was unanimously elected on the 
Board of .Advisers, while Mrs. Richard J. Barr 
is the other adviser from Joliet. 

Right now the matter of greatest iinimrtance 
is the G. A. A. Camp. Everyone is talking ni 
it and hoping for a chance to go. 

The Illinois League of High School Girls' 
Athletic Association had their camp last year 
at the Bowen Country Club, which is aliout 
three miles from Waukegan, and a mile and 
a half from the lake. There are two pretty 
cottages, which are used for dormatories, and 
one large dining hall. There is also another 
hall for plays, or parties and dancing. About 
fifty yards froiu the cottage there is a large 
artificial sw'imming pool. The grounds are 
covered with beautiful gardens, and woodlands 
in a deep ravine. 

And did we have fun at campr Well, we 
sure did! There w-ere groups of girls from 
several different schools, and each school gave a 
stunt. One gave a masquerade, another a play 
which was loads of fun. Then a wienie roast 
on the beach was given ; but when Joliet girls 
gave their stunt they surprised them and gave 
a ride on the lake in a motor boat. 

Every day there were long hikes, swimmin.g, 
baseball and everything an athletic girl en- 
joys. We even took a trip to Zion City! Then 
on the sly there were candy pulls, fudge parties, 
and pillow fights galore. 

The camp will be at the same place this year, 
and if you are a G. A. A. member and want to 
have a rousing good time for a whole week, 
i\' n't fail to come ! 


Football is a nawsty game 
Indulged in by the tough ; 
Thev hit each other in the face 
Which makes the sport quite rough 
They tackle men they've never met. 
And try to snatch the ball 
When the other team is visiting 
It isn't fair at all. 
The quarterback's a clever chap 
He knows the plays by heart. 

.And when he whispers one, two, three 

Away the fellows start. 

The referee is paid a fee 

For wearing long white pawnts 

If he should ever reason wrong 

-He'd not have hawlf a chawnce. 

Despite the rudeness of the game 

I swear it's awful fun 

-And jollv well I'm .going again 

To see just how it's done.

CLASS HISTORY— Continued from page 22 

when Stevt hud a new sirh W ilhchni and 
Kocrner were from our cUiss too, and it cer- 
tainly was a good team. They won all hut 
tine game that year. 

Granddaughter: (Laughing) "Round as a 
ring that ha.s no end; such is my love for you 
my friend." What a loving and original seuli- 
nient. "In your long chain of friendship re- 
gard me as a link." How noole! "A chain 
i- as strong as its weakest link." Oh, I could 
write a poem about that — golf links, cuff links, 
winks, thai rhymes; sinks, thinks, blink^, 
kinks. Ah — In your chain of friendship links, 
think of me as one of the kinks — let's see 
what else rhymes: ininx, ginks, jinx. 

Grandmother: "Jinx," that reminds me of 
the hilarious time we had burning ours! 

Granddaughter: A hunch of .ginks, they 
burned their jinx. 

Grandmother: We certainl\- liurned it. ll 
was almost uncanny. We had lost every game 
of the season but a couple b\' only one point. 
The team was practically all seniors, and we 
felt so badly about it because we wanted them 
to have a winning season the last year they 
could play. Then our luck changed, and we 
won a game. When the fellows came home 
we had an assembly, and that night we had 
a parade and a big bonfire down at the field 
and burned our duminyfied bad luck. From 
that time on you couldn't stop us. 

Granddaughter: What's this' Helen's curl! 
Were j'ou in the habit of choppin.g oflr each 
other's hair? 

Grandmother: That's Helen Gallinger's, 
She was Battalion Sponsor in our last ye;ir. 
In fact, the girls from our class were 
most popular with the R. O. T. C. In our 
Senior year Avace Treharne, Bernice Lowerv. 
and Helen Gallinger were sponsors, and in 
our Junior year they chose Mary Benson, Lois 
Rlatt and Margaret Kallman. Betty Sawyer 
was honored as a Sophomore. 

Granddaughter: \Vhat was this R. O. T. 
C? The Royal Order of Timid Cadets? 

Grandmother: The only time they were tim- 
id was when they were .getting dates for their 
annual dance. It really meant Reserve Offi- 
cers Training Corps, and was a branch of the 
regular army. Ours was the first class to 
complete the four years of training, and we 
boasted more officers than any other class in 

Granddaughter: Are these favors from 
your parties? 

Grandmother: Yes. we always had one or 
two nice parties each ye;ir. These are from 
our Sophomore party. That was our first big 
social event, and we were all excited over our 
"dates" and new dresses. We had a .gorgeous 
Junior party at Christmas, and our Junior 
Senior from was a great success. It was the 
last party we had in the old Richards St. gym 
and it was a gay affair, for the w-hole gym 
was a fairy garden of red and ^^•hite poppies. 
In the new gym we never had decorations, 
but the Seniors managed to have a jolly time 
without them. 

Granddaughter: "The .Adoration." What 
was that? 

Grandmother: That was the Christmas 
cantata that was given by the High School 
Chorus. Two of our seniors, Willard Gray- 
hack and George Perkins warbled like night- 
ingales in the solo parts, and there were a 
great many of us in the chorus. 

Granddaughter: It nuist li.uc been delicht- 
ful to belong to an organization where \iiu 
could learn to sing your own praises 

Grandmother: Oh ye~. indeed' And be- 
sides that, there were a number of -.i nior 
members in the band leaiuing to toot their 
own horns. .And there were others in the 
Orchestra who always furnished a fitting ac- 
companiment for our little songs. 

Granddaughter: Why, here's an autograph 
in French signed ^lary Weeks. 

Grandmother: Yes, we had a thriving 
French Club, and Mary wa^ president in our 
Senior year. In fact all tlie officers were 
Seniors. Frances Forbes was an efficient sec- 
retary, and Lois Alae Blatt gracefully served 
as vice president. 

Granddaughter: WJiat's this' "Roses are 
red. violets aro blue, my hair's red and your; 
il too!" 

( irandmolher : I remember Carl Brann 
wrote that in there. He was vice president 
the first semester of our Senior year. Our 
Senior officers were noted for their brilliancy 
of both the inside and outside of their cran- 
iunis. for that same semester our treasurer was 
Jean Lordon whose hair was almost as vio- 
lent as Carl's. Loretta Metheny, our secre- 
tar\-. while not endowed with such brilliant 
exterior decoration made up for it by interior 
brilliancy. In the second semester we still 
had Jean to light our path, this time as vice 
president. The .girls were represented by 
Edna Schmelzer as secretary, and Harold 
Shingler was treasurer. 

(iranddau.ghtcr : Didn't you have a presi- 
dent .' 

GrandmoMier : Goodness. >"es. That was 
LeRiiy Wilhelmi. He was a star in every- 
thing. He was not only our president but 
the president of the Blue and Gold Club as 

(irauddaughler : Why. what was that? 
Grandmolher: The Blue and Gold Club'' 
That was a club for the fellows who had wo-i 
their letter. They tried to promote .good 
sportsmanship in every direction and had a 
great deal to do with giving our school a good 
reputation athletically. Certain members were 
responsible for visitin.g teams during those 
marvelous basketball tournaments of our last 
year. Oh, those unfor.gettable tournaments! 
1 thrill to the thought yet. Here's a picture 
of that matchless team. How we adored 

Granddaughter; Why. this fellow looks 
just like LeRov Mason our star guard. Who 
is Ik-:' 

Grandmother; Why. that is LeRoy Wilhel- 
mi I've just been telling you ;ibout. }.Iason 
did you say?' Wh\- Jean, now that I think of 
it your LeRoy is none other than our LeRoy's 

Granddaughter; Oh. how thrilling! To 
think that LeRoy Mason's grandfather played 
basketball! Was he any good? 

Grandmother: They said he was one of 
the best guards that ever wore the Blue and 
Gold. But no man was the star of that team; 
it was a team of stars. After only a inoder- 
ately successful season the tournaments 
crowned it w'ith a triumph greater than all. 
The district tournament was an easy win, but 
the sectional — we expected to win the first 
game and we did with a hard tussle. After 
that we hoped we could, but were pretty

T. C. in J. T. H. S. is now entloil. Many num- 
bers have completed four years and are graduat-

R. O. T. C. has been a big success and has help- 
ed them to be better fellows. Many of them 
will enter colleges and continue the good work. 

The object of the military training has been to 
develop the fellows physically, and make them 
wide awake and active. It has helped them to 
be neat in dress and has taught tliem militar> 
courtesy. It has taught them the basic prin- 
ciples of warfare and has placed them in a 
position in which in case of an emergency, 
they could, in a very short time, be put in con- 
dition to be of valuable service to their countrw 

We regret very much the loss of Col. Lovell 
and Sergt. Kirk. Col. Lovell had only one idea 
in his mind at all times when he was with the 
fellows. Everything he could do was for the 
betterment of the corps. Sergt. Kirk was a 
friend of all the fellows. By being friendly 
with them he got them to work hard for him 
in his classes and they liked it. 

The R. O. T. C. went to work aboiit a week af- 
ter school started in September. After a eouule 
of weeks of hustling up and getting into condi- 
tion, honorary reviews were given for the dii¥er- 
ent civic organizations of the city in appreciation 
of the many things they have done for the R. O. 
T. C. Reviews were given f( ir Dr. Smith. Mr. 

IJush. Rotary Clul>s. Kiwanis (,'lub, Juliet Cham- 
ber of Connnerce and ex-serviee members of 
tlie faculty. A nund)er of the members turned 
out on Armistic Day and with the band were 
given the honor of leading the parade. After 
the parade the Chand)er of Commerce took all 
the members who had turned out, to Morris on 
special cars to see the football game which 
was to take place that afternoon. It was a trip 
to lie appreciated and was surely enjoyed by all. 
( )n Xovendjer 6, 1022, and again on April l.i, 
the R. (). T. C. was inspected bv l,t. Col. Sill- 
man, the officer in charge of R. O. T. C. work 
i)i the (ith corps area. 

Field day took place on May 25, this year. 
This is always a big dav for the school. Com- 
pany, platoon and squad drill were the main at- 
tractions of the dav. The Captain Doddridge 
cup and Mrs. Doddridge flag always go to the 
best drilled company. Then there were trophies 
presented to the best drilled platoon and squad. 
Medals were given to the best drilled individ- 
uals. In the evening, the military ball was held. 
This is always looked forward to from the be- 
ginning of the school year by all the members, 
and the school in general, because they know it 
is to be about tlie biggest thing of the year. 
After May 25. drill was discontinued and uni- 
forms were tin-ned in and checked, l)riuging a 
successful vear to a close.

T. T. H. S. BAND 

The Band 

The Band has taken part in many of the 
school activities, such as football, basketball, 
and the May festival which was held this 
year for the first time. The May festival 
proved a great success musically. 

In September many new Freshmen came 
into the band; they were soon whipped into 
shape by Mr. McAllister and Mr. Gierich, to 
take the places of last year's graduates. 

The band accompanied the football team to 
most of their out-of-town games, and played 
at all the home games. 

In basketball the Band, as usual, played an 
important part, helping the team to win some 
of their games. They also turned out a team 
of their own which was entered in the R. O. 
T. C. tournament. Although the Band was 
beaten in the tournament by "C" Company 
they came back at them beating them twice 
after that. The officers of the Band are: 
Ellis Schofield, President; Paul Barniville, 
Secretary; Lester Jagar, Treasurer. 

The R. O. T. C. officers of the Band are: 
Paul Barniville, Captain; Ellis Schofield, 1st 
Lieutenant; Edward Grinton, 1st Lieutenant; 
Ivenneth Conlisk, 2nd Lieutenant; Lester 
Jager, 2nd Lieutenant; Bob Brumund, 1st Ser- 
geant; Bcrnice Lowery, Sponsor. 

The Band; intends to cop the cup again for 
the best drilled company, as they did last 
year. Captain Barniville will have charge of 
the whole company. Lieutenant Schofield is 
to take charge of the platoon, and Corporal

Eckert the squad. Field day was on May 25, 
the evening being spent in a big dance which 
ended it all for the year. 

There is to be a National Band Contest in 
Chicago, June 4th to 7th which is the busy Com- 
mencement week. There are three classes of 
bands: grade school, high school, and Military 
banas. J. T. H. S. expects to enter in the 
High School and Military classes in which 
the concert and march formations will be the 
things judged. 

The Band is going to St. Louis on June 18 
at 11:30 A. M. with the Rotary club at their 
convention held there. It is also going to 
Camp Roosevelt this summer for the third 
season about the last of August. 

The glorious J. T. H. S. band is an element 
in the High School not to be forgotten by the 
Seniors who are now leaving the school. It 
has offered many enjoyments; and for the boys 
who are leaving to have started their high 
school career with the Springfield trip and to 
have ended up with a St. Louis trip with many 
happy trips in between not forgetting the 
wonderful Atlantic City trip is certainly a most 
happy high school experience. The members 
have broken many windows and they have 
been in many fights, but they have always 
managed to come out alive and victorious. 
Good night.

meeting of the J. T. H. S. rifle elul.s tliat Mr. 
Grose called last Septendier. S(i. for several 
weeks, 667 was the onl\ J. T. II. S. Unit ni 
operation. It has been on the range ever\- 
week this year except during vacations. It h;is 
shot in the nati(jnal W. J. K. (.'. matches with 
Units all over the U. S. A. It has won the 
majority of these.

Our Unit has had great times since we have 
been shooting on the new J. T. H. S — R. O. T.y . 
range, but we miss the good su'^oers we used to 
cook last semester over the ,gas stove at Joliet 
Rifle Club. Another thing that we have done 
this \ear is to select a uniform for the Unit. 
We wore this for the first time on a "hike" 
earh' in Ma\-. ( )ur merr\' gioup of nineteen 
girls left Joliet at 7:00 A. M., and walked si.x 
miles down the old tow-path to Rock Run. We 
all wore pack carriers on our 1 acks, with cook- 
ing outfits and "rations for two meals." It 
was a wonderful day, and we had a wonderful 
time, cooking our meals and hunting for flowers. 
In the afternoon we had water fights and other 
games: and used up dozens of films "snapping" 
the funn\- groups that we made — and some w 
didn't make. After cooking supper, we hiked 
baek to Joliet, arriving tired, but sure that Un't 
667 will continue next semester with more "nep"

You would naturally expect an organization 
like the Rifle Corps to be striking and stun- 
ning and to the point — and so it is. We h?ar 
reports from them every week. A simple 
proof of Unit 76S's being a useful, energetic and 
general asset is that it was organized away 
back in 1920, and it takes a fairly worthwhile 
activity to weather three years in high school 
and not be swamped by the newer things which 
are being introduced. 

Unit 765 owes its success to a good many 
things, or if you'd rather, many good things : 
a good range, good rifles, good bullets, and 
mainly good instructors. Mr. Grose for several 
years has been the capable and helping hand 
which guided this unit, but in the fall of 1922 he 
passed the position of director over to Mr. 
R. N. Magor, who has followed well the pre- 
cedent of encouragement and enthusiasm es- 
tablished by Mr. Grose. 

Being a Rifle Unit we should have aims, and 
consequently we have. They arc : to hit the 
".\ Bull" every time and to have a good time 
all the time. 

When school began in September 1922, nearly 
half of the members of Unit 765 had graduated 
in June, and the unit was left with a member- 
ship of five. However, with the addition of 
some new members our total mounted to nine, 
while in the spring of 1923 four more members 
entered. Our entire enrollment was thirteen 
which proved a vcrjr lucky number, as we won 

the majority- of the matches which we shot. 

In January the ancient mariners, or rather the 
ancient marksmen, gave an initiation party for 
the new members, at the rifle range on Cass 
Street. True to custom the unit had a noisy 
and wonderfully good time; and after the 
"eats" and stunts, the unit went skating on 
Richards Street Pond. 

That was about the last session held in that 
range for the one in high school was com- 
pleted, and we moved our headquarters there. 

In April, the members, most of whom had won 
their Promarksman and Marksman medals 
and were shooting for their Sharpshooter, enter- 
tained the older members at a delightfully child- 
ish "Children's Party" held at Mr. Beecher 
Petersen's home. 

No doubt, if one of the doomed targets were 
to give its opinion on Rifle Corps in general it 
would be something like this : 

"I am faced by a determined, invincible rifle 
— I know that I shall soon never feel the same 
again — that I shall be — ah — perforated. The 
action is closed, the hammer set, the barrel 
leveled at me, the sight exactly at my A Bull. 
The trigger moves — ouch I right through my 
middle — and another, and another I all in my 
A Bull. I'll be a beautiful target. I'll be a 
lasting symbol of what W. J. R. C. stands for 
— each one of these five bullets stands for a 
principle. (Excuse me if I'm didactic, but I'm 
a fine target). They stand for concentration, 
ability, patience, persevance, and good sports-

And settled down to drill 
He bored awa\- for half a day 
And finally broke his bill. 

T,ucky in cards, unlucky in love

But in every case it all depends 
Upon the hands you hold.

In November 1921, under the inspiration and 
helpful guidance of Miss Denning, the Junior 
and Senior girls banded themselves into a 
girls' club, such as many high schools have and 
took unto themselves the name of J-Hi Stars. 
The first few weeks made it absolutely certain 
that they couldn't be eclipsed. After a most 
successful year in 1921-22, in September 1922 
they again rose on the horizon, this time with 
those who had been the Junior members ad- 
vanced to the dignity of stars of the first magni- 
tude seniors, and the former Sophomores, now 
Juniors, coming in such numbers that they 
formed a veritable "Milky Way," Some of the 
seniors who had not belonged in their Junior 
year felt they, too, wanted to shine and joined. 
These bright young women further proved their 
brilliancy by choosing for the officers the fol- 
lowing : 





Jenny Westling and Lucy Booth were put in 
charge of the program committees, Grace An- 
derson of the music committee; and Mary 
Wrecks of the Christmas welfare work. This 
last committee is at the head of one of the 
most important of J-Hi Star activities and 
fulfills one half of our reason for existence — to 
help others. The girls are assigned to various 
committees numbering about fifteen niendiers 
each. Each committee is then given the name 
of some needy family. The girls eacli make a 
small contribution either of food, monev, cloth- 
mg, or to\s Baskets arc. then hllid md lh>

Nell Red Cross seals at Christmas and thus once 
more live up to their purpose. 

The other half of our purpose is to promote 
comradeship among the .girls. As this does not 
mean between Junior and Senior girls only, 
Freshman sponsors were appointed. Various 
girls volunteered for this work, and from the 
many who did so the sponsors were cliosen. 
Each sponsor was given charge of four BI 
Freshman girls. The sponsors act as a kind of 
big sister to these girls who are not yet fully 
accustomed to the school and its traditions, and 
endeavor to smooth out some of the bumps on 
the BI's path along the Road of Knowledge. 
A "get acquainted" party was held for the 
sponsors and their charges at the beginning 
of the semester. Several after school parties 
for the club members were held also. 

The second semester got in to full swing with 
no sign of any dimming on the part of the J-Hi 
Stars. During this semester they met every 
second Tuesday and undertook several new 
projects. Among these was the publishing of 
a pamphlet on etiquette designed to meet the 
needs of a high school girl. Their biggest 
social event was also undertaken during this 
semester. This took the form of a dinner dance, 
for which the date was April 2S. Tables were 
arranged representing the months of the year, 
and the group at each table |ilaced in charge 
of a teacher. Decorations were carried out in 
keeping with the months and each table con- 
tributed a "stunt." The various activities of 
the second semester were carried out under the 
able generalship of our elficient officers who 
were elected in F'eliruarv Thcv were :

Good eats, a snappy speaker, an ar,L;innent or 
two, then home. Such is the program that is 
looked forward to by sixty-five boys from High 
School and Junior College, every Tuesday at six 
sharp. Sixty-five live fellows are spreading 
throughout the school and community, high 
standards of Christian character, and are ever 
keeping before them the thought of clean 
speech, clean living, clean athletics, and clean 

During the first semester of '22-'Z3. a small 
group of boys was inspired, somehow or anoth- 
er, with the idea of a Y. M. C. A. This group, 
the remnants of the Older Bovs' Conference of 
'22, met every two weeks at Snapp's or David- 
son's, under the able direction of Brooks Steen 
and Mr. Kirby, with the idea of getting repre- 
sentative boys from each class in school. In a 
few months, the membership grew to such pro- 
portions, that an appeal was made to different 
churches for a place to meet. Mention must

lie made (if the ladies ot the churches, who 
so willingly prepared suppers for reas'jnable 
prices, thus furnishing an added incentive for 
getting together every Tuesday night. 

Prominent business men of Joliet seemed glad 
to talk to the club about the trials of a busi- 
ness life and what makes up a successful man. 
April tenth the club gave the school a real 
treat, by securing Dad Eliot to speak at an 
assembly on the subject of "Quitters." By this 
talk, the club was advertised to the whole 
school, which in turn increased the member- 
ship list. 

The big pow wow of the season was held in 
the form of a banquet, given at the Ottawa 
Street M. E. Church. Of course the girls had 
to be invited, but it did not hurt anyone to lis- 
ten to Professor Boornian, who gave the ad- 
dress of the evening. The new officers, Dick 
Jones as President. Ray Leimbacher as Vice 
President, and Fayette Shaw as Secretary- 
Treasurer, were introduced to the club and 
given advice by retiring officers. This being 
the last meeting for the sunnner, the club dis- 
banded until its next meeting in September, at 
which time the power to rule will be given the 
new officers.

.'\ppreciation : 
The Girl Scout movement in Joliet will suf- 
fer a great loss when Miss Acenith V. Stafford, 
captain of North Star Troop, leaves J. T. H. S. 
next year to attend Columbia University'. We 
owe more to Miss Stafford than we can ever 
express. In March 1922 eleven girls, previously 
Camp Fire Girls, started a troop of Girl Scouts 
with Miss Stafford as their captain. It is 
largely due to her courage and foresight that 
there are now eleven troops, sponsored by the 
Woman's Club, the Steel Works Club and 
various churches, and a full fledged Senior 
Council composed of prominent women of Jol- 
iet. Aifiss Stafford lias been at all times a 
splendid leader, a loyal captain, and our own 
dear "Awayoli." We wish her every success 
in her work and hope that she will see her wav 
clear to go on with Scout work aga-n some time. 

Aliss Pha Ruggles of j. T. H. S. has very 
kindly consented to lie captain of the high 
school troop next year. Miss Chloris Shade and 
Miss Glenna Ilamill will assist. The patrol 
leaders will help plan the meetings and train 
the Tenderfeet.

students. Seven, all members of North Star

That's really not so hard; in fact it's ratlur 
fun. This year said students and teachers have 
accomplished quite a little. 

Last semester Joe Barr was chairman and 
Grace Anderson secretary. With these two 
pushing or pulling, as circumstances demanded, 
we put through more than a few things. 

Early this fall new yell leaders were ap- 
pointed with Melvin Williams as head leader or 
in other words head yeller. 

Instead of hot dog sales, they earned nione>' 
by a new, unheard of method — they started and 
worked successfully a check room, thus helping 
the public, as well as themselves. 

Another of their projects is this new bulletin 
board system which seemingly, so far although 
not very much used, shows great promise. 

This semester little has been done because (jf 
interrupted meeting, but w-e have several 
amazing schemes under consideration and hope 
thev also will be successful. 


The Biology Club has always had a pur- 
pose. Its chief purpose is to emphasize, in 
detail, certain facts concerning plants and 
animals. There is also a certain amount of 
credit given those who attend the meetings 
of the club. The Biology Club is governed 
by a Senate which is chosen from those ob- 
taining the highest grade in their biology 
work. This Senate convenes and transacts 
all the business concerning the club. Each 
semester, a committee of three, all members 
of the Senate, is elected by the Senate. This 

conimittee chooses the officers of the Biology 
Club. The officers chosen by this commit- 
tee are: 

William Green, President; Helen Touzalin, 
\"icc President; Francis Cox, Secretary; Mar- 
garet Carter, Treasurer. 


I'aiil Stewart, President; Margaret Leach, 
\'ice I'resident; Lucile Keniston, Secretary; 
.\lbert Hagmeyer, Treasurer. 

Some of the lectures given b>' students, and 
I)ertaining to plants, were, "Alfalfa," "Manila 
Hemp," "Bacteria and the Spoiling of Food," 
"The Joliet Water Supply," "Diphtheria," 
"Smallpox," "Tuberculosis," "Indigo," "Ro- 
quefort and Chcddan Cheese," "Health Offi- 
cers and their Duties," and "Care and Im- 
provement of Farm Woods." 

There were lectures on "Charles Darwin," 
and "Louis Pasteur" by students also. 

Those lectures concerning animals were: 
"Life in the Sea," "Bird Migration," "Sharks," 
and "Bedbugs." 

An effort is made to have some lecture 
given by others than students, at each meet- 
ing. The following are some of these lec- 
tures: "The Honey Bee" by Dr. Copley; 
"L^se of Plant Evidence in Solution of Prac- 
tical Problems" by Henry C. Cowles, Pro- 
fessor of Plant Ecology at the University of 
Chicago; "Plant By Products" by Miss 'War- 
ning; "Bird Migration and Conservation" by- 
Orpheus Schantz, President of Illinois Audo- 
bon Society; "Insects" by Mr. .'somes, a new 
member of the faculty. 

Enthusiasm for the Biology Club is in- 
creasing as is the attendance at the meetings. 
We hope the enthusiasm and attendance will 
continue to increase, and more people than 
biology students and teachers will become in-

They planned to bring their instruments once 
a week, to practice for one hour; — (why not 
practice at home? — just one moment please — ) 
hut tliat would never do unless they had a 
leader. So these six heads thought and thought, 
though }iot in vain, for Mr. Hiram Converse, 
a talented musician and instructor in Joliet. 
consented to meet with them once a week for 
one hour. This, folks happened in 191o. This 
was the beginning of the J. T. H. S. Orchestra. 

For ten years this organization under direc- 
tion of Hiram Converse, has steadily progress- 
ed. From year to year more and more students 
have been added to the original number, until 
now it consists of forty pieces. During the 
past, the orchestra has given many concerts, 
and has made friends — yes, friends and friends, 
and then some more including those in the out- 
lying towns. Every year, it has lent its kindly 
support at Commencement. On the night of a 
Senior or Junior College Play, the J. H. S. 
Orchestra could l)e seen down in front. People 
were ushered down the aisles to the tune of a 
peppy march. They listened to interesting 
overtures between acts. Strains of music fol- 
lowed them out of the auditoriiim, even as a 
host follows his guest to the door and liids him 
come a.gain. So the Orchestra has done its best 
to represent so hue an institution as Joliet High 

The Calendar of livents for the past year 
show that : 

The opening concert of the year was given 
iri Elwood. Saturday. November 4, 1922. A good 
time was had by all — including the audience. 

November 8, 1922, the "orch" accepted an in- 
vitation extended by the Biology Club, and 
played a few numbers at the beginning of the 
program, — much to the pleasure of all con-

\iolins, racks, orchestration numbers, the in- 
struments, and the nuisicians themselves drove

the third mark scored by the orchestra 
last semester.

since only one page has been reserved in the 
1923 Year Book, this is the best we can bo. 

With the increase in number of students, and 
the splendid additions to present building that 
are being contemplated, we hope for a great 
increase in members of the Orchestra. With 
the new auditorium seating everyone in the en- 
tire school, the splendid stage, perhaps, well 
perhaps the J. H. S. will give a concert, and 
the assisting soloist will be Fritz Kreisler.

Mixed Chorus 

The Mixed Chorus has, from the early fall, 
numbered about 100 voices. The aims of this 
organization have been (1) to study the best 
choral works of master composers and (2) to 
present to the public these works in a musi- 
cianly manner. It has been a source of en- 
joyment for all concerned. Although irksome 
at times the pride in the finished program has 
aiwaj-s offset any mcPiory of tedious rehearsals. 

A fine spirit of loyalty has pervaded the 
chorus. The director has never felt the need 
of checkin.a" attendance at recitals because of 
the fact that the few absences were accotintcd 
for before or after the performance. This 

aione. should speak well for the attitude of the 
organization toward its work. 

rive major appearances of the chorus in the 
year have given an impetus to do some very 
hard work. A Christmas program was given 
I >ecember 10: an Easter program March 18. 
They appeared in several numbers in the 
Music B'estival May 5. and will make two ap- 
pearances commencement week. 

The chorus has built a fair sized repertoire 
for the year. Two cantatas and many other 
lesser octavo numbers of sacred and secular 
character, all of which have been presented in 
program, make a rc-pectable showing for this 

Girls' Chorus 

The Girls' Chorus has ,grown to include 
eighty-five voices this year and from this 
group were chosen ten girls calling themselves 
a Treble-Choir. They have done a few things 
worthy of mention so far and they hope ne.xt 
year to put on a cantata for the V)enefit or 
those interested in music. The tenth of De- 
cember they sang a group of songs accom- 
panied and unaccompanied at the Episcopal 
bazaar, assisted the J-Hi Staff in the assembly 
in April by representing the music depart- 

ment. Then on the 26th of .^pril they gave a 
Ijrogram at the women's prison followed- up 
by one similar in Elwood at the Presbyterian 
church. They also came in for their share in 
the program of the May festival, each chorus 
giving two numbers. They have at their com- 
mand a repertoire of at least twenty beautiful 

During commencement exercises they ap- 
peared on Baccalaureate program singing 
"The Sanctus" by Charles Gounod as a re- 
sponse to the Invocation.

Boys' Glee Club 

The Boys' Glee Club came togther again 
this year, ready for work and organized under 
the following officers : 






The first thing they did was to help out in 
the cast of the "Mikado", a comic opera given 
by the Junior College. After having had the 
sensation of singing in an opera, the hoys de- 
cided they would like to give one of their own, 
but, on account of so many school activities, 
plays, concerts, etc., which were coming, they 
decided to wait until next fall, when they will 
give "Captain Van Der Hum," a comic opera 
for male voices. 

Their ne.xt appearance was in Colonial Hall 

w liere they sang at a liazaar given by the ladies 
of Christ Episcopal Church. After singing they 
spent the rest of the evening dancing, and 
everyone had a fine time. 

They appeared with the m'xed chorus at the 
Christmas and Easter programs, and gave two 
selections from "Captain Van Der Hum" as 
their part on the Music Festival program. 
They also gave a selection at the Farmer's 
Institute, where they were well received. 

Their final appearance was at a luncheon 
given by the Rotary Club. They were served 
with a very delightful lunch, after which they 
gave several selections which were appreciated 
by the members in attendance. 

It has been a very successful year for the 
Boys' Glee Club, and we hope that next year's 
members will come back with the same vim and 
vigor as was shown this year.

Radio Club 

Tlie Radio Clr.b is now completing its fi urtli 
successful year. It was organized shortly after 
the Armistice was siLjiud. There Avere al)out 
ten charter memliers. and its personnel has 
reached as high as fifty at one time. The club 
used as a means of exchanging different 

The club not only consists 
but includes members from

of local enthusiasts

There are two very distinctive divisiiiis ni 
radio enthusiasts; first there is the broad- 
cast listener or more conmioul>- called a B. C. L. 
The highest ambition of this group is to pick 
up the sweet strains of a southern melody jazz 
orchestra, or to listen to some insurance agent 
iniloading to his invisible audience ; or they are 
probably congregated to discuss the setting of 
their deals for different stations, or maybe they 
are setting the distance that can be received 
on a cat whisker and a piece of galena. Then 
there are some B. C. L's. that thought a car- 
rier w-ave was a bearing that needed a drop of 
oil; and such go to make up tliat group. 

Second comes the true American ham. This 
group mmibers about thirty thousand in the 
United States today. It was this groiui that 
supplied Uncle Sam's army and navy with ex- 
perienced operators during the di'rk daxs ■ i 
'17. It was this group being lield down to two 

hundred meters, that developed C. W. tr.ins- 
mission on two hundred meters to an efficiency 
that greatly outclasses most commercial trai.s- 
niitters in use toda.\'. 

In 1021 the amateur saw that the U. S. was 
getting too small to test the DX of his trans- 
mitter; so they sent a committee to Scotland 
to listen for them, and at that time about thirty 
stations were logged. 

The next year 1922-23 during a period of fif- 
teen days there were more than three hundred 
American stations heard in Europe, and today 
they are pushing traffic regularly across to 
England. The next reports will have to come 
from Mars or elsewhere because they are be- 
ing heard in China. Australia, and New Zealand

Hi^h School French Club 

The Higli School French Club year may he 
Hkened to a telescope, turned at many angles. 
Through it we have glimpsed many people. If 
they do not inhabit the moon, they .seem almost 
as distant from us when we consider their at- 
tainments. We have noted the behavior of people 
en route for a seance of the Frencli acadamy. 
What a procession it was! Jean Richepin. .-Kna- 
tole France, Pierre Loti, Maurice Donnay, Clem- 
enceau, Foch, and the grand old man Mr. Frey- 
cenet. who died recently, with their brother im- 
mortals were on their way to the acadamy to 
work on the famous dictionarj'. we suppose. 
Perhaps how'ever. they were going to elect the 
men to fill those empty chairs. 

Turn the telescope — Oh I we can see over Ma- 
dame Senignes' shoulder as she writes letters 
to her daughter. She is telling about the chef 
^'atel and the fish. You saw through the open 
door of the hotel Rambouillet? 

We all like to know people of note, people who 
have done something worth while in contribu- 
ting to the world's sum of knowledge; who have 
become famous in their chosen field of labor. 
We often have the privilege of an introduction, 
at least, to a great soul through even a quotation 
given in answer to roll call. Did you see the 
marquise .' Can you hear anything that sounds 
like preciosity "' Weren't they aiTected ? Really 
you ought to have seen that group lie fore the 
procession to the acadamy, but no matter, this 
telescope never seems to consider the time ele- 
ment anyway. There it is veering over to show 
us some other famous women ! I believe it is 
Madame de Stael ; yes. it is. But let's put on 
a reflector and attach the records so we can see 
and hear ourselves. There I I see Mary Weeks 
in the presidential chair. She is requesting 
Secretary Frances Forbes to read the minutes 
of the last meeting. She says that Lois Blatt. 

\ ice- President presided at the last meeting in 
the absence of the president. That was the 
Easter meeting when we had aufs de Parfnes. 

Oh, that's a reflection of the meeting at Snapp's. 
What's that ? O I see, it's the clever program 
when the "voters" play and the "At school" were 
given, Mary Barr was fine and the teacher Alljert 
Hagneyer was great. 

( )h ' Look! There's the Christmas play where 
Ralph Cissne is the father, Lucille Kelly is April, 
Julia Lipow is December, Mary- Lewis is Febru- 
ary, Elizabeth Sawyer is June, Mary Van Horn 
is one of the months and so is Frances Woodruff; 
but I can't make out wdiich. I can see Beatrice 
Borden and Florence Pester are in it too, but it's 
too dim to see distinctly. That looks like Stanley 
and Joe Barr liut, I'm not sure. There, that's 
Bessie Hartshorne and .Adrian and \\ illiam Large 
any way ; yes, and Edwin Levin too. 

Turn the reflector a tinty bit. There's the May 
program to perfection with Lois Blatt, Louise 
Storm, Joan Wright, Louise Data and Dorothy 
Emery going through the play of "La Marraine 
de .giverre" in such a dramatic way. O. I love 
the minuet don't you? They do it w-ell too. 
Listen I That's the record of "Sur le pout d' 
.\vignon" w'ith Jenny Westling's finger dances. 
.\ngeline Haley does that well too, but look at 
.\tleta ! Ruth is clever isn't she?' But what's 
that? I know its Bernice Lenander, Joe Zalar 
and Mary Weeks in their Xapoleonic caps at 
the Year Book assembly. 

I suppose that because "Fais Dodo Carlos nou 
petit frere" means it's time to go home, the re- 
flector isn't working well any more? Well, do 
turn the telescope. See! it shows a rosy avenir 
— the future — such a lonely land ! We can carry 
memories of the club year into I'avenir. My, 
they look like myriads of tiny buds. Yes. they 
are buds which will blossom in the rosy avenir.

Madam Chairman, Dr. Smith, Memliers uf the 
Senior Class, and Friends : 

From time immemorial it has been the desire 
of man to perpetuate his memory among those 
who should follow him. But tliis desire to per- 
petuate one's memory did not die with the past, 
hut is with us today. The ancient Egyptian Kin.^s 
had armies of slaves build great pyramids for 
their tombs, but they are not now thousfht of 
as tombs but as memorials. A certain doctor 
in Michigan had sculptured a life size statue of 
himself reposing in a chair. His dying wish was 
to ha\e this statue placed over his grave, and 
today it stands in one of the most prominent 
places in the cemetery. So down through the 
a.ges this custom has come. It is now time that 
we. the class of 1923. present our memorial, that, 
though our class may be gone it will not he 

The committee charged with the honorable 
duty of executing tlie <it the class has selected

Xow what shall this niennirial which we this 
day present to our school mean to those wlm 
follow us? We do not wish you merely to stand 
before this memorial and look upon it as a pic- 
ture. We want everyone of you whether .graduate 
or undergraduate to be inspired, as you look 
upon it. witli the spirit that carried us 
our four years of scholarship — the spirit of 
doing our work to the best of our ability. 

The duty has been assigned to me. Dr. Smith. 
of transferrin,g this picture to your charge as 
guardian of cmr memorial to this school : for

social and scholastic ha]ipiness. Here we formed

you. From this moment it is no longer the prop- 
erty of our class. It becomes a sacred trust 
held liy you for all the future students of this 
school. Here let it hang not only to perpetuate 
our reverence for our illustrious school, hut to 
keep alive the principles that inspired all our 
career as students in this school.

The Date of Birth Reveals That — 

Aiulci-son. Fred— AuKU--t 31 

His prol\'?,sion ci'iicerni the hncr details of 
a large organization. His characteristics 
are order, self-reliance, and everlasting 
youth. He has a way of speaking the truth 
as he sees it, with no regard for the feelings 
of others. 

Crane, Ruth— -July 31 

Her profession is social leadershii), or the 
arts. Her characteristics are faith and self- 
control, a conihination which seems to 
generate a magnetic personality, which is 
hard to resist. 

Dutty, Joe-Jnlv 27 

His professions are mannl.icturing and lec- 
turing. His super-sensitiveness leads him 
to great extremes, and his miserliness, due 
at maturity, has already- appeared. He 
finds it vcr\' hard to admit his own olivious 

Eyman. Roliert — Xovemher 30 

He thinks quickly, acts swiftly, and is cau- 
tious, courageous, and self-reliant. He is 
unreasonably irritated at unfinished tasks, 
and is not satisfied to succeed, but must 
carry his friends along to success also. 

Johnson, Howard — December \h 

His chief characteristic is caution and he 
is gentle and quiet, though feeling deeply. 
He sees visions and sights quite beyond the 
powers of his associates. He is most grate- 
ful, doing almost any service to win a caress 
or a kindly word.

His faults are apt to be exaggeration, pre- 
varication, and bragging. His healing power 
may be highly developed, intuitive know- 
ledge telling him when to use it. His 
characteristics are: a good niemor\-, sensi- 
tiveness, and the power of absorbing and 
retaining knowledge. 

Lagger. Dorothy — June 5 

She has a double nature, in constant con- 
tradiction of itself. She loves knowledge, is 
proud of her ancestry, is sympathetic and 
thoughtful of the poor and suffering. She 
is naturally restless, nervous, and hysterical. 

Lennon, Robert — July IS 

He is jealous, yet inconstant, and his de- 
mands are ever contradictory and unex- 
pected. He can accjuire much wealth, but 
will always fear poverty. He has too great 
a regard for the showy things of life, not 
realizing that he is robbing the inner life 
to sustain the external. 

Mary Donahue : How does he keep his wig 
on ? 

Dorothy Sandiford : I guess it's by suction. 

Helen Waesco : I'm going to be a boy in a 
play. Can I take a suit of your's? 

VVill McKee : Take one of luine? Sure, 
you can use one leg for a hobble skirt and the 
other for a sash. 

Help Wanted — A companion to go fishing 
at I.ilv Cache. C. Hanson. 

McGann. James — January 9 

He is gentle and retiring, with managerial 
abilities. He should be a commercial agent, 
doing commission work. He likes the 
things of this life far too well to be con- 
tent to li\'e with love in a cottage. 

Afartin. John— May 4 

flis characteristics are a strong will, na- 
tural sympathy, and courage. He is an imi- 
tator rather than an originator, with innate 
medical capabilities. His worst fault is an 
imreasonable temper, which nothing lint 
silence will quiet. 

Peacock. Lois — February 22 

She is always glad to talk, whether it lie 
about her successes or failures. She meets 
social engagements gladly, but business is 
attended to for the benefits derived. Her 
chief characteristics are : friendliness, rest- 
lessness, and great courage. 

Reid, \'iva— .\pril 29 

She pursues reli,gious work with 
ardor, and devotes herself with great zeal 
to those who have faith in her. She pos- 
sesses the gift of mind reading, together 
with the gift of concentration and intuition. 

Roschek, Kathryn — September 22 

She has a great respect for blue blood and 
family. Her keen accuracy- and discrimi- 
nating judgment make her a good critic. 
However, she criticises the small things 
often without tact. 

Sandiford, Dorothy — June 30 

She is positive, strong natured, talkative, 
and literary. She likes money for its own 
sake, also elegance and display, Happy and 
courageous by day she becomes distrustful 
and despondent by night. 

Seron. Vaheh — August 21 

His characteristics are persistent will, sen- 
sitiveness, and domesticity. He is inclined 
to diseases of the heart, and shtuld guard 
against prevarication. Fte loves knowledge, 
and acquires it easily. 

Smith, Cecil — September 11 

He is a natural philosopher, and possesses 
most accurate discrimination. He should 
show business ability early in life. Wednes- 
day is his best day, while the weeks fol- 
lowing May 10 ami September 28 are also 
Inckx- ones. 

Switzer. Willet— August 20 

The vital essence of his personality enables 
him to sway an audience or public opinion. 
He has excellent judgment, combined with 
practical good sense and spiritual insight. 
His profession is to be the ministry.

The JiiniiT Ciilli-giais liav ■ hrrn iimi uall ,■ 
attciitivi to tlnir social activitif- this ycir 
Hardly a week Iras passed, since school start- 
ed in earnest, in September, wilhoiit its par- 
ticular event of interest. 

Our attention was first called to a steak 
fry. On the evening of October 24, a party 
of Junior Collegians, chaperoned by Miss Law 
and Miss Spangler, boarded the good shi]), 
"Milton D." and journeyed to Limachcr's 
woods, where they enjoyed a steak fry. Thus, 
social afifairs had begun in earnest. 

Of course, Junior Collegians are \er\' bus;> 
folks, and they cannot spend all of their tiniv- 
planning steak fries and parlies. So for the nr\l 
month tlicy had to content themselvc with 
Friday afternoon social hours, and a roui^h 
neck day thrown in every once in a while for 
variety's sake, until the next great event on 
the social calendar appearcil. 

On November l(i, the Junn.r College Chil. 
gave a dance at tin (.'onservalory Hall. \ 
six piece orchestra composed of Junior Col- 
lege students furnished the music. Members 
of the faculty were chaperoncs at this jiarty, 
and the dance proved to be a great success. 

Our attention was next called to- the one 
big event of the semester: the party at the 
Country Club which was held on December 2, 
and was one of the smartest afifairs of the 
Thanksgiving season. Music was furnished by 
Formentoc's Orchestra, and at eleven o'clock 
luncheon was served by the chef of the club 
Twelve o'clock, the hour of departure, arrived 
too soon to please the enthusiastic group of 
Collegians who attended the party. 

With the closing events of the first semesLe:' 
will l)e remembered the party given in the 
high school cafeteria on January 17. 'Twas 
here that members of the cast of "Conip Tint 

of the Kitchen," and members ,il the ".Mika- 
(!( " cast forg( t for cue e\ en ug the tr als and 
tribulations of the past week of exams, and 
"tri]ii>ed the light fantastic," to music fur- 
nished by Fornicntoe's Orchestra. The only 
drawback to this party was the hour of de- 
parture, eleven-thirty, but then, Ihere were 
high school students in our ninKt, and they 
simply had to get to bed,. 

1 he spring activities were ushered in by 
the annual spring party held on April 2(1, in 
th<- Cafeteria. Klcnore Adams' Orchestra fur- 
nished music for the dancing; and through- 
out the evening games were played to break 
llic sjiell of the dancing,

was placed by the banquet

At the beginning of last semester, Mrs. Bab-

French Class form a cluli. The students eagerly 
acted upon this plan gnd formed L'Aubade. 
Frank Joss was elected "le president." Robert 
Lennon "le vice president," and I,\dia Converse, 
"la secretaire et le tresorer." 

Our club life began when Feytel III extended 
an invitation to L'Aubade and to other Feytel 
members ti a party at Snapp's cafeteria. De-

L'Aubade had the honor to attend. "Pas un

to always speak French, but this did not lessen 
the joy thereof. 

In appreciation of the party given us, 
L'Aubade entertained Feytel members at 
Snapp's Cafeteria on ilarch 20. Resides 
speeches, dancing was a pastime.

Feytel III. French Club 

Rtady to brave the dangers of unknown seas 
the crew of the good ship "Feytel III" set sail 
from the port of September, under the command 
of Captain Everett J. Shaw with Dorothy Lag- 
ger as first mate. The first few weeks out the 
seas were calm ; everything went smoothly, and 
the crew was in high spirits. But this state 
of affairs was not destined to last ; they were 
approaching the sea of "Memorize," or better 
known on the map as "le jVIer de Apprendre 
par Coeur," where man\' squalls were encoun- 
tered, resulting in a few near casualties. Des- 
pondency came over some of the members. 
Monotony and the dreary prospect of hard 
work were the causes. At the end of the first 
six weeks, entered in the log book as the "first 
semi-quarter," the crew was paid "each man 
according to his works." Here again were 
many disappointments. Many felt that their 
services had been underestimated, and mutter- 
ings of mutiny arose. These mutterings were 
soon silenced; the ship was at the mercy of 
"Le Cid," a treacherous wind prevalent in that 
quarter of the globe, and there was no time 
for such thoughts. Blown off the course, the 
ship narrowly escaped being stranded upon the 
reef of "Eugenie Grandet." Then a great 
calm, in nautical terms "Le Verre d'Eau", set 
in. This gave the crew a chance for other 
pursuits. Some tried their hands at writing 
verse. A few of the gems are : 

"Un maison without a cheminee, 

Un navire without a sail 

What could be so bad dans printemps 

As exams you're sure to fail?" 

The above was written by Charles A. Hill, 
who assumed command of the ship upon the 
resignation of Mr. Shaw. "Another Words- 
worth", was the acclaim which greeted the fol- 
lowing poem, beautiful in its ni\sticism and in- 
tense love of nature. 

"It was an agreeable jour dans Springtime. 

The babbling ruisseau did flow. 

The larks and thrushes sweetly sing 

Au revoir, hiver, and your snow." 

Some other offerings were : 

Peutctre dans some future day to come. 

Je gagnerai great fame in writing verse 
Mais, now quil faut que J'ecris, and I can't 

Je simplement sit ici, ct curse et curse." 


Nous avons une vive petite French class 
Dans quels le Francais nous speak 
Et la pensee that peut-etre nous will not pass 
II nous fait very weak. 

Hard nous study nos lecons 

Nous parlous of ceci and cela 

Nous dig for material pour notre cahier 

Some choses nous croyons tant-blas! 

C'est hard aller a classe dans le printemps 
C'est like going from daylight to dark 
Vols, helas ! it is necessary to graduate 
Dans Francais nous want our mark. 


A lew entries from the log book will show 
that other pastimes were indulged in : 

December 12: "The Feytel III" put in at the 
piirt of Snapp's, and shore leave was granted. 
The ship was provisioned with ice cream and 
cake. A cargo of perfume and candy was taken 
aboard. Our pleasant stay was cut short by 
"Le Question d'Argent" and we again set out 
to sea." 

"The lookout sighted a ship, longitude March 
,50, latitude 4 o'clock. It proved to be "L' 
Aubade" bound for the same port." 

Around the end of April an epidemic of 
spring fever hit the crew, leaving the ship 
under-manned. In consequence it just missed 
being washed upon the rocks of "Gil Bias." 

Mav 1 : "The crews of both the "Feytel III" 
and L'Aubade," were entertained at the port 
"416 Richards Street" by Mrs. Babcock, the 

Already shore lights can be seen through the 
seaman's glass. This suggests a parting of 
friends made en voyage. Addresses of travel- 
ing companions are being traded with the idea 
of exchanging letters in the future. The great 
question before us is : Can we pass the customs 
house? Is our baggage too great?

Come Out of the Kitchen 

During tlu' early part of January, kitchens 
became most unpopular with Junior Collegians 
as well as many of their high school friends, 
especially the pul)lic speaking classes. Every- 
where was heard the cry. "Come out of the 
Kitchen," and so well was the summons obeyed 
that on the evenings of January 5th, 6th. and 
ISth, over 2500 people had abandoned their suii- 
per dishes to fill the seats of the auditorium and 
listen to an all-star cast of Junior Collegians 
present their annual play. 

Never before in the annals of the College 
had its annual play been presented at three 
evening performances, but, due to the urgent 
requests of many. Miss Dickinson and the cast 
gladly repeated it during the mid-year vaca- 
tion. This unusual popularity was inidoubtedl\' 
due to tlie efforts of the personnel, most of 
whom had appeared in previous school perform- 
ances, as well as to the splendid coaching of 
Miss Lena Dickinson. 

The plot of the three act comedy by A. E. 
Thomas presents a destitute, aristocratic, 
southern family who decided to rent their home 
to a rich Yankee, who stipulates in the lease 
that there must be no colored servants. The 
expected white servants not arriving, the four 
young Dangerfields themselves decide to take 
their places. This rash scheme is proposed and 
executed by Oliva. the pretty "big sister," en- 
acted by Edna Mae French as the heroine, and 
we are sure that Miss Ruth Chatterton. who 
played that part on the legitimate stage would 
have envied Miss French's charming manner 
and perfect stage assurance. In a twinkling, 
she transforms herself into Jane Ellen, the 

cook: her stubborn little sister Elizabeth, Ruth 
Crane, into an upstairs girl; Paul, the yoinig 
law student, recognizable as Charles Robson, 
into a butler, and Charlie. Harold Glasgow-, the 
mischievous younger brother, into a "boy of 
all work." This is hardly accomplished wdien 
the Yankee hero. Burton Crane, arrives to take 
possession, and from his first appearance, Willet 
Switzer lives up to his title of our college 
Romeo. Burton Crane brings with him as 
guests Mr. Solon Tucker, his lawyer friend, 
Elmer Grohne, who "specializes in kitchens," 
Mr. Tucker's sister, Mrs. Faulkner, "a dragon, 
a hen. and a cat," Mildred AlcPartlin, and her 
charming daughter Cora, Leone Bryant, who, 
disregarding her mother's plans to matrimonial- 
ly entrap Crane, makes plans of her own re- 
garding the young poet, Thomas LefTerts, 
Joseph O'Connell. Lefferts, in an endeavor to 
see Cora, has a thrilling kitchen experience first 
with the cook and then with Mammy. Genrose 
Weaver, Oliva Dangerfield's old colored mam- 
my, who, unable to stay away longer, has come 
back to see her "li'l lady bab3'." Many amus- 
ing incidents take place in which the "incom- 
petent servants" are involved and one by one 
Burton Crane dismisses them and one by one 
protests of Raudolf \Veeks. Campbell Carey, an 
agent and friend of the Dangerfields. to whom 
the plot has been confided, and the outcome of 
the plans of the young people look doubtful, 
but all is safe when, after much suspense, Oliva 
acknowledges her love for Crane and the play 
ends as it should — "and they lived happily ever

The Mikado 

On Decemlier 15, 1922, two Joliet audiences 
were removed from the Here and Now into 
a land of cherry blossoms and kimonas. 
through the genius of Gilbert and Sullivan in 
their light opera, "The Mikado," which was 
presented by the Junior College for the bene- 
fit of the loan fund. The principals of the 
cast w^ere all members of the Junior College, 
while the assisting choruses were composed 
of students from the high school and junior 
college. Following is a list of tlic principals: 

The Mikado of Japan Benjamin Jones. 

Nanki-Poo, his son, disguised as a wandering 

minstrel, and in love witii Vum-Yum, 

Fred Talbot. 

Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner of Titipu,... 
Everett J. Shaw.

Three Sisters, 
wards of Ko-Ko 

Gladys Hansen 

Florence W'alz 

Loretta Fisk 

Katisha, an elderly lady in love with Nanki- 
Poo, Congetta Romano 

There is a fascinating plot, with a great 
deal of music, humor and nonsense, Nanki- 
Poo, the son of the Mikado, fleeing from the 
unwelcome love of Katisha, a favorite of the 
Mikado, comes to Titipu, disguised as a 

second trombone, seeking his love, Yum-Yum. 
He learns that Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor, con- 
denmed to death for flirting, has been pro- 
moted to be Lord High Executioner, and is 
about to wed Yum-Yum. Nanki-Poo, des- 
pairing, resolves to die. The Mikado cen- 
sures Ko-Ko for laxity in office, and threatens 
dire punishment unless a beheading takes 
place within a month. Nanki-Poo agrees to 
be the vactim if he may marry Yum-Yum im- 
mediately. The chorus prevent Katisha's at- 
tempt to reveal Nanki Poo's identity. 

In Act n, Y'um-Yum's w'edding prepara- 
tions are halted by Ko-Ko's announcement 
that the wife of an executed subject must be 
buried alive — "Such a stuffy death." Nanki- 
Poo heroically renounces Yum-Yum, and 
pleads for immediate execution. Chicken 
hearted Ko-Ko refuses, and finally it is ar- 
ranged that Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum shall 
elope, while Pooh-Bah makes out the death 
certificate of Nanki-Poo to satisfy the Mikado, 
who unexpectedly arrives at Titipu. The vic- 
tim's death is affectingly described, and Kati- 
sha discovers his identity from the certificate, 
and bewails his death. Ko-Ko faces a horr- 
ible death for slaying the heir apparent, who 
refuses to come to life until freed from the 
danger of Katisha's tmwelcome love. Ko-Ko, 
to escape his dire peril, resolves to wed her, 
and wins her consent in a tearfully funny 
scene. Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum receive the 
Mikado's blessing, and Katisha accepts the 
unwilling Ko-Ko, who is the only unhappy

The Junior College Male Chorus 

^ Perhaps you do not know that there are 

4 two organizations of growlers in the Junior 

J College. When you glance at the first para- 

,J graph of this and pass to the next article you 

s , will have become acquainted with this fact. 

'-'' The first of these growler organizations had 

/ the audacity to style itself the "Junior Col- 

V lege Male E)ouble Quartet." 

': This group was gotten together at the sug- 

gestion of John Martin, Harry Witkin, and 
Frank Joss to while away a few moments be- 
tween scenes of the Junior College play. We 
appeared in all three performances of the 
play, under the foregoing appellation, and 
rendered "Carry Me Back to 'Ole Virginny" 
and, as encore, "Way Down Yonder in the 
Cornfield." We received some reports that 
it was "rotten," but most of them were some- 
what complimentary. Our personnel at this 
time consisted of Fred Talbot, Anton Olivo, 
Harry Witkin, Bob Snure, Frank Joss, Ever- 
ett Shaw, Ben Jones, and John Martin. Bob 
Snure was not present for the third perform 
ance. He had his customary "sore throat." 
Mr. Brockett trained us for our appearance; 
any credit goes to him and we will take all 
the blame (we get more than our share at 
that, we believe.) 

After this performance, Mr. Brockett sug- 
gested that we continue long enough to try 
to redeem ourselves. We enjoyed the prac- 
tices; so we agreed to continue and to prac- 
tice Wednesdaj's and Fridays. During this 
time we changed to music requiring piano 
accompaniment; so Margaret Owen was ob- 
tained for accompanist. Her presence also 

augmented the attendance at practices. Some 
were interested enough in music (?) to at- 
tend our rehearsals. Among their number" 
were Alberta Miller, Grace Mau, Gladys Han- 
sen, and Florence Walz. 

We were asked to sing at "Growlers" and 
were glad to comply, with "Winter Song" 
and "In Absence." These were well received; 
so we sang "Gleam, Brightly Gleam" as an 
encore. At this appearance we had the same 
persons who sang before, reinforced by Mr. 
Brockett, Fayette Shaw, and Vaheh Seron. 

At the end of the first semester of the 
year, the chorus was weakened by the loss of 
Harry Witkin, a second tenor, and strength- 
ened by the addition of George Perkins, a 
second bass. Frank Joss was changed to 
second tenor from baritone, and a second bass 
was made "utility man" to shift to baritone 
when necessary. We were to appear, twelve, 
counting director and accompanist, at the 
May Music Festival, but John Martin, Vaheh 
Seroij, and Anton Olivo "backed out" at the 
last minute. However, we appeared and 
sang, "The Sword of Ferrarra" and made a 
good try for the "bacon" even if we did not 
succeed in bringing it home. 

Mr. Brockett hopes to be able to develop 
a male chorus of twenty-four voices in the 
Junior College next year, so that we may 
enter in the contest staged annually between 
the choruses of the colleges and universities 
of this part of the country. It is not believed 
he can do this because there are too many 
Albertas. who will sav to their Johns, "Oh! 
DON'T go T.ODAY, John." 

Prize Poem 


Frances Beckwith 

'Neath sunny skies in summer lands. 
She beckons us with friendly hands, 
And calls us to the golden sands 
Of distant shores, serene and fair. 

Soft breezes blow with fragrance sweet 
Across gay blooming fields, to greet 
Us hurrying on impatient feet 
To keep a tryst beyond compare. 

In fancy free, e'en now we stand 
Upon some far, enchanted land ; 
Beauty and charm on every hand. 
Greater than ever poet sung. 

A tavern quaint, a gleam of gold. 
Walls ivy-clad and touched with mold, 
Rich palaces and towers old. 

From which gay minstrels' notes have rung 

It is a magic of the heart. 
Which touches castle, church or mart. 
Transforming all things by its art — 
Old World romance is ever voung. 

Prize Story 


Genrose Weaver 


Captain Jem Atwood was a native of Cape 
Cod, which is the same as to say that Captain 
Jem lived in his low, rambling white house, on 
a sandy bluff overlooking Southam Harbor, from 
one migration of summer folk to the next. And 
what is more to the purpose. Captain Jem had 
always been a native. 

"Ben born an' raised right here on the cape," 
he would say proudly. "An' thar ain't a place 
in God's wide world like old Cape Cod. No, — " 
here the voice would grow husky, the gruff old 
sea captain with his grizzled hair, piercing eyes, 
and deepfurrowed, weatherbeaten visage became 
changed. His hands trembled and he became 
astonishingly older. "No," he would continue, 
"though I got to 'How things ain't what they 
was in my day, and — never'll be again?" 

He was right. Things had changed. In Cap- 
tain Jem's daj's Southam, like so many other 
Cape Cod villages, had been a flourishing fish- 
ing hamlet with crowded wharves. h\iiy streets, 
many shops, and prosperous fishermen. But 
one by one the older generation of sea-farers 
had been laid to rest in the old burying ground, 
and the new generation, findind its intrest in 
the near-by Hub, had left the village practically 
deserted, save in the summer months when it 
again roused after a long hibernation. Old home- 

Page One Hundred Thirtyfou 


steads were then reoccupied, and rest seekinjj 
summer boarders swarmed like bees, attracted 
by its quaintness and its quiet. 

It was summer now, and Southam was astir 
with its numbers of transient inhabitants. The 
great red sun was sinking over the horizon and 
its fading rays of sunlight were lingering around 
the deserted wharves. The captain, as was his 
habit of summer evenings, was seated in front of 
his house on the edge of the bluff, gazing out 
across the harbor. From time to time he puffed 
at the corn-cob pipe he held between his teeth 
and gazed before him, yet a keen observer would 
have questioned whether he saw anything of the 
glorious scene, and in fact he did not. He looked 
out from under his shaggy brows upon the 
Southam of fifty years ago. In fancy he saw 
the great sails of a fishing fleet filling before a 
stiff sou'easter, the well filled schooners skim- 
ming through the white capped waves. He heard 
the cheering of the crowd upon the shore and the 
huzzahing of the returning fishers. He could even 
distinguish faces of his friends upon the wharf 
and himself at the helm of one of the fastest 
little vessels that ever sailed off the Cape Cod 
coast. Under the softening inflvience of his day- 
dream the stern face of the skipper rela.xed, but 
like a flash, he changed, the fancy gone. He 
had heard a step behinl him, and in on instant 
the Captain Jem of the past became the stern, 
apparently hard-hearted hermit of the present, 
asking or giving nothing, and thinking, living 
forever in the past. 

"Lo, Cap'n, inighty fine sunset thar." The 
intruder came up and stood before the captain 
fumbling with a very shabby felt hat. His em- 
barrassment was evident. 

Gradually the captain turned and eyed his 
visitor from his mop of reddish hair to his dust- 
covered shoes. "Ye-es" was his laconic and 
none too hospitable reph'. "Ye-es, Dave." 

Dave, not greatly encouraged, stood awk- 
wardly near offering no further conversation. 
At last the captain spoke. 

"Waal, I cal'late you wanted to see me 'bout 
somethin' didn't you Dave? Folks don't gen'rally 
come up here 'less they do." 

David Brent gulped, then summoning all his 
courage nodded. "Waal yes. Cap'n. Do you 
cal'late you've decided any different 'bout the 
yallow house down on the P'int ?" 

The captain's jaw set tighter. "No." The an- 
swer was deliberate, positive. "Made up my 
mind, I cal'late, Dave." 

"Them summer folks pays good, an' they need 
it mighty bad." 

"Cal'late I've made up my mind, Dave," reit- 
reated Captain Atwood, and this repetition 
brought the matter to an end. In a few moments 
Dave was shuffling off in the direction from 
which he had come, and the Captain, knocking 
the bowl of his empty pipe against his knee, rose 
and entered the house. 

The 7 :45 mail train from Boston was due in 
twenty minutes and a group of men were loung- 
ing in front of the Southam General Store and 
Post Office awaiting its arrival. Ike Gould, the 
postmaster was speaking. 

"I heerd Dave was askin' Cap'n Jem 'bout sel- 
lin' his house to them summer folks down on 
the P'int." 

"Waal," observed another lounger. "It ain't 
the fust time as Cap'n Jem's been asked that. 
Xigh onto seven years they've been trying to get 
that house. 'Tvvould make a fine dance hall for 
them summer folks, but he hangs on to 't worse 
'n a liarnacle. Says it's old associations or some- 

thin' an' he won't sell at any price. 'Tain't doin' 
nobody any good. I cal'late, and the Cap'n just 
doin' it for meanness." 

"Waal, I cal'late thar'er mean folks an' thar 
'er the other kind too," philosophized old Veeny 
Gill, the station master, as holding his official's 
cap in hand, he swung one leg over a tonic case 
and looked steadily at the lounger. "The Cap'n 
does 'pear like the mean kind, but the others 
is like, waal, is like Miss Hubbard I cal'late. She's 
that thar school marm as come down from Bos- 
ton a few weeks 'go to summer at the P'int. A 
mighty smart young w'man an' real good lookin 
too. She's dead crazy 'bout young ones. I saw 
her takin' a whole crew of 'em on a picnic day 
'afore yesterday. She's mighty int'rested, as I 
larn, in startin' a school here this winter so af, 
the youngsters won't have to cruise clear t' 
Orleans, but the school board claims as they 
can't 'fford to build a school house an' thar's noth- 
in' as will serve 'ceptin Ezra Pain's old barn 
what's like a seive to all th' elements. It's mighty 
too bad, I cal'late." 

Veeny stopped speaking just as the whistle of 
the approaching train was heard, and immediate- 
ly all was stir in preparation for the event of 
the day — the arrival of the 7:45. 

The morning after David Brent's visit found 
the captain plodding slowly along the main road. 
The sun lieat unmericfully down upon his stooped 
figure leaning heavily upon a stout stick, but he 
minded it not. slowly making his way, his eyes 
fastened upon the ground. Only once did he lift 
them when he changed the position of his left 
hand so that the small Ijouquet of fuchsias which 
he carried might escape the direct rays of the 
sun. On he went until at last he paused and 
lifted the wicket gate of an old cemetery from 
its rusted hinges. As it squeaked back and 
he stepped in among the weeds and half hidden 
tomb stones it was as if a host of ghostly figures 
came forth to meet him. Friends long since 
depa'-ted but not forgotten accosted him at every 
step. The words of a Welsh folksong come to 

My lips smile no more my heart Ir 


No dream of the future my spirit can cheer, 
I only would brood on the past and its bright- 

The dead I have mourned are again living here. 
He walked slowly and carefully through the long 
weeds until he came to a grave that showed 
the care of loving hands. Here he knelt and 
laid his offering of flowers. Then slowly he raised 
his eyes and read once more those simple words 
w-hich seemed so seered into his soul. 

Here lies Rebecca Paine, 

Age 21 
May She Rest in Peace. 

Rebecca Paine, the dear sweetheart of the long 
ago. Memory was kind and came to sooth his 
solitude. He lived again those happy days when 
with a golden haired girl he trod the lanes of 
Southam, full of the joys of life and love. Cap- 
tain Jem was not one to forget. In spite of the 
years which divided the young man from the 
old, he loved still as deeply and as truly, and 
clung to all that was near or dear to the lovely 
Rebecca with hopeless tenacity. He leaned nearer 
the grave and almost inaudibly murmured. 

"Becky. Becky, you wouldn't have me sell our 
little house, would you? The little house where

With the opening of school came the caU for 
basketball men, and a fair number reiponded. 
Witli just a few men with basketliail ability our 
prospects for a hundred per cent standing 
throughout the season looked poor, but under 
the coaching of "Mike" Gates we soon began 
to round into shape and prospects began to 
look brighter. Due to the fact that the high 
school light and heavy weight basketball teams 
practiced after school and occupied the gym 
from -1 o'clock to 6 P. M., we had to practice 
after supper at 7 P. M. and for a time only two 
nights a week were devoted to basketball. Of 
course, this was a handicap to us. but then we 
made the best of it and worked hard to put over 
a winning team. 

Our first game was with Aurora College at 
Aurora, and we lost a close game, with the 
final score 22 to 18. Our line up was : Jim 
Meers at center; Walt Morrison at right for- 
ward; Bob Eyman left forward; Vaheh Seron, 
right g:uard; and Joe Duffy, left guard. In this 
game it could easily be seen that we had not 
found ourselves, and we needed a good deal 
of practice to accomplish team work. In our 
next game we had the good fortune, so to 
speak, of having John Douglas and Jim Barr 
with us. Their coming strengthened our team 
considerably, but nevertheless we lost our sec- 
ond game to the American College of Physical 
Education of Chicago, the score being 20 to 15. 

We players felt that there was something 
radically wrong, for we were losing to teams 
that we felt were inferior to us. Consequently, 
Coach Cates arranged for more practice ses- 
sions, and we pinned ourselves down to real 
work. The scrinmiages with the Bell Telephone 
and High School teams made us feel more con- 
fident of ourselves (which is half of the battle), 
and we showed a great improvement when we 
met our next opponent, Chicago Tech College, 
beating them, 29 to 19. The winning of this 
game gave us new spirit, and we worked hard 
for the coming game with Mt. Morris. The 
fans who v\'itnessed this game will agree with 
me, when I say that it was the best game that 
had been seen around Joliet this year. The 
game was close throughout and ended with a tie. 
IS to IS. However, in a five minute overtime per- 
iod, we nosed them out by one point, the final 
score being 18 to 17. Though the team as a whole 

played a good game, the first honors should go 
to VValt Morrison, who caged four baskets, 
wdiich kept us in striking distance of Mt. Morris 
throughout the game. Bob Eyman made the 
final point by caging a free throw, which gave 
us the game by one point. 

We found little trouble in winning our next 
four games, beating St. Procopius 27 to 7, 
Elndiurst 22 to 12, Northwestern Academy, 21 
to 14, and Aurora 47 to 10. It gave us great 
pleasure to give Aurora a drubbing, as they had 
beaten us in our opening game, and we were 
all primed for them and showed them that we 
had somewhat improved since we last met them. 

It seemed as if there was a jinx following us 
whenever we played away from home. Elgin 
Academy defeated us in a fast game through- 
out, the score at the end of third quarter be- 
ing tied, but then, in the fourth quarter Elgin 
came back and out-played us (but did not out- 
fight us) and won 30 to 19. Following this game 
we went to Mt. Morris for a return game with 
them. It seemed as if we just could not get going, 
and they beat us 31 to 22. Our last game was 
with Northwestern Academy and they beat us 
in a fast contested game. 

Though we lost these last three games of the 
season, it did not make us feel so badly as we 
had beaten these same teams on our home floor, 
with the exception of Elgin, with whom we did 
not pla_v a return game. 

Sunniiing up our basketball season, we can- 
not boast of really having a successful season, 
but nevertheless we won 60% of our games. 
The "one thing" we can boast of however, is a 
"fighting team"; they were of the spirit that 
says, "never say die". The team was composed 
of real sports, who never boasted when they 
won, and never kicked when they lost. Thus 
ended the season, with much of their success 
due to the unfailing efforts of Coach Cates. 

Here are the names of the survivors of the 
season who deserve the credit of the Junior 
College and public in general. 

"Bob" Eyman — a worthy captain, brainy for- 
ward, and a consistent player. 

"Walt" Morrison — a slim lad, a forward with 
a dead eye, and there with the goods. 

"Chuck" Woodruff — the redheaded lad, who is 
difficult to keep track of when he gets going.

Immediately following the close of the basket- 
ball season a call was sent to the Junior Col- 
legians lor baseljall men. The first night look- 
ed very promising, as we had about twenty men 
report for practice, but by tlie time the first 
game was scheduled, the.\- had thinned out, and 
now we have approximately eleven men re- 
porting for baseball practice. However, these 
eleven men have plenty of fight and baseball in 
tlicni ; so we have developed a team that will 
compare evenly with previous Junior College 

Our first game was sclK'duled with Mt. 
Morris, April 14, but due to the bad weather 
the game was called off. Our next game was 
scheduled with Northwestern Academy of Kap- 
erville. Illinois. April 21, but again the we.ilher 
was unfavorable for l>aseball. and the game 
to be postiioned to Wednesday. April 2.5 

The first game showed that the Junior Collejc 
team had plent\- of stuff, scoring five runs in 
the first two innings, and three more runs wen- 
added to this number before the game had 
terminated, while the best Northwestern coii'd 
do was to score one lone run. The final score 
was 8 to 1 in favor of Joliet. 

Al Siegrist, the College pitching ace, perform- 
ed in great style, allowing the opponents onl>' 
two liits, and striking out eight batters.

Farewell Oration. 

By James Mctjann 
(Takes pitcher of water, pours glass full, and 

then drinks slowly). (Beginning in a loud voice) : 
Mr. Chairman, (iuests. Sponsors, and Fellow 
( irowlers : 

1 have lieen asked this evening to give an ora- 
tion on the lienehts derived from hard studying 
an<l having an aim in life. But, as I stand up 
here, and look at this gi£ai_maanificent and in-tel- 
lect-u-al gathering before me. 1 am sure that they 
do not need anyone to tell them that stu'' '- ' 
diligently has its iust rewards and that havi"? 
an aim in life sours one on to greater deeds, and 
so — and so — (stops, reaches quickly and raises 
glass of water; reading from a paper cufif that 
his outline of speech is on ; after a glance at 
outline ) and so, I have decided to leave that |)art 
(.)f my speech to some other person at some other 
time. But, liefore beginning "ni'-" oration. I wish 
to thank Miss Law and Mr. Trams, who with 
the help of one of our most distin.guished (ges- 
turing wildly), brilliant, noted, and .great (paper 
cuff flies off after a particularly wild gesture ; 
going on after a pause) and. and greatest orators 
of today wrote this oration. Now, when "1" 
wrote this oration, I was asked by nearly every 
member of the graduating class to tell you. the 
prominent members of the Growlers, some things 
that we would like to leave behind as reminders 
of our good will and to show our sincerity to- 
ward you. Keeping in mind, kind audier.ce. that 
these are all meant in the spirit of fun and not 
in the least to be offensive. lend me your ears ! 
( Takes documentary will from pocket and reads : ) 

To our sponsors, we. the class, collectively and 
individually, wish to leave behind the profound 
admiration of the class of '23; To Blanche Hills 
— Lois Peacock's ability to giggle; to Margaret 
Cummings, Ruth Crane leaves the balance of the 
treasur}' to lie used to buy a pair of rubber over- 
shoes for detective work. We are sure that she 
will need them in dealing with the class that is 
to be our succssC'T. To the basketball team o) 
next year, we leave you the ability of Bob Eyman 
and Joe Duffy. "Hee-haw" Seron couldn't be 
induced to surrender his. To all future class 
presidents. Fred Anderson's ability to convince 
Mr. Trams of the said President's unerring" 
judgment, To "Browk" Steen. the musical gifts 
of Dorothy Sandiford. "Music hath charms to 
soothe this — this — savage beast." John Martin 
wishes to leave behind a wonderful example for 
others to follow ; especially "Brick" Shaw and 
K. Y. W. Sinninger. To "Beanie" Greenberg. 
clever as he is. the histrionic gifts of Frank Joss. 
To Howard Seltzer. Bill Switzer's executive abil- 
ity, but not his beauty. He'll feel the need of 
that, he fears, and couldn't be induced into, leav- 
ing it behind — even with "Howdy" who needs 
it so badly ! To Campbell Carey and Clark 
Woodruff", the example of all the members of 
this class, to keep quiet on all occasions — even 
when in the midst of ladies. To George Lofdahl. 
Kathyrn Roschek's ability to talk on any sub- 
ject from rowing a boat to making love. To 
anybody who needs it — listen to this in particular, 
because I fear some of you might have need of 
this ; after many years of developing it to a 
point of accuracy, Bob Lennon leaves anyone his 
l)luft" ; apply earlj' and avoid the rush. To 
filadys Hansen. Viva Reid's ancestors; she thinks 
she doesn't need them any more — she can face 
the world behind her coat of paint. "Cee" Smith 
says that anyone wishing to attain his success in 
life at such an early age should keep thia i-.i 
mind ; "Go to bed when you please, and lay at 

One Hundred For 

your ease, And you'll die just the same of some 
Latin diesase." To Joe Wliitwam and "Les" 
Heintz. the right to dance the hesitation waltz, 
the fox trots, the one steps, and the Venus waltz ; 
and permission to sing the latest Russian song. 
"Wishihadawhisky." To Joe O'Connell. Dot Lag- 
i>er's box of cough drops, which she finds has 
helped her much in her singing ability — especially 
during French, when there is no piano to accom- 
l>any her. To yi:ur class, all such boys as are 
al)le to keep pace yith the brilliant girls that 
compose the majority of our class. 

Yet, all these farewells are as nothing com- 
pared to the farewell we must make. We must 
leave behind something needing protection : you 
ask, "What?" and I answer, "The Cirowlers." It 
needs our help as much as the "League of Xa- 
tions" needs America, or, as much as Prohibition 
needs ^'olstead. But, a League of Nations was 
accomplished, and so it will lie with the (irowlers, 
only more so! Just tliink of what a future, with 
the silver-tongued eloquence of a Johnson. You 
are all probably familiar with Howard's form 
in patriotic speeches: he was held up by Miss 
Dickinson as having the best form, for patriotic 
speaking she ever saw. Xbw. when she says 
this, it means something. Imagine what you are 
missing by not having (poses wdth one arm ex- 
tended and one foot lifted off the ground: in a 
loud voice) Patriotism! Patriotism! I cannot 
do justice to his form — not having tiie logic of a 
Bryant. I hear that she can talk to a teacher 
for five minutes and raise her mark five points — 
well, that's more than most of us can do by 
talking to a teacher for five months. And, also 
think of what you're missing bj' not having the 
good cheer of a Shrolia. I wonder if Ray will 
smile for us now? (Ray smiles sweetly) Yes, 
I guess he will ! 

Alas, mjf friends, the loss of these eloquent- 
log-i-cal. wit-ty, and cheerful people are the 
costs of progress, and. since you are to be handi- 
capped somewhat by losing such celebrities, al- 
low me to give you a little serious advice in 
conclusion : 

Attempt, and do your best, to make the Grow- 
lers an organization for the betterment of the 
school — both socially and intellectually. This 
can be accomplished in only one w-ay — by making 
opportunities and taking advantage of them. 
Making opportunities, I say, and not waiting for 
them. There is a popular belief in the minds of 
young men — perhaps more than in young women 
— that much in your lives depends on luck. The 
longer one lives, however, the more he is in- 
clined to concede nothing to luck. Luck mas- 
querades under other names, and I say, that the 
man or woman wdio succeeds in life, succeeds 
in proportion to the ainoimt of work that he or 
she has done ' .And, so it is with a literary club 
or society ; it cannot succeed and be a credit 
to a school unless all the members do their best 
to make it a success, and I am confident, that if 
every member here tonight does his or her best 
to make the Growders a success, that in five or 
ten years from now. when the Growders is widely 
recognized, you can look back, point, and say 
with pride: "I!" "I'm a charter member of the 
Growders! I helped to make it wdiat it is to-

Here oft arm in arm we wandered 
Where the smiling moon peeped through 
Shedding down its silvery blessing 
( )n the good old Growlers true. 

O how dear are all the Growders 
Loyal we through sun and showers — 
For we learned to love each other 
Where we spent youth's golden hours. 
In the world of trade and commerce 
Life will give a darker view: 
But to-night we sing the praises 
Of our dear old Growlers true.

we were to be so happy if — if things had been 
different. You wouldn't have me let them make 
a dance hall of the very room where our children 
would have played, would you, Becky? Our little 
home. I can't let 'em do it. I can't." Here the 
old man buried his face in his hands in his great 
anguish. Poor Cap'n Jem. the past was so dear 
and yet so far away. He was so very alone. It 
was nearly evening wdien he rose, quiet and com- 
posed, and retraced his steps back to the house 
on the bluff. 

Several days later as the sun was setting, the 
customary group of loungers gathered in front of 
the General Store and Post office. David Brent, 
who was among the number, was busily engaged 
in i)iling up empty tonic boxes. Suddenly some 
one spoke his name. "Dave. Dave Brent." The 
owner of the name glanced up into the face of 
Captain Jem. There was no hardness in the 
captain's eyes now as he said. 

"Dave, though I cal'late I've made up my mind 
'bout sellin' my yallow house to them summer 
folks, still, seein' as I had a vis'tor the other 
day, you'd 'blige me, Dave, if next time you're 
deiiverin' down at the P'int you'd tell her that 
Cap'n an' Mrs. Jem .Atwnod will be pleased as 
to see their yallow house used as the school house 
this winter." 

Then without another word he walked off 
leaving the astonished Dave aghast with amaze- 
ment to lean against the tonic cases and gasp. 

"An' there never was no Missus." 

Prof. Somes : Explain the breathing system 
of the fish.

stand about it ?

ROOM 209 

Year Book Clubs 

This year J. T. H, S. faced the \-early prob- 
lem ; the school needed a year book. Accord- 
ingly, plans were laid for a year book spon- 
sored b\' the senior class. The staff felt that 
a year book was too big an undertaking to be 
undertaken by one class alone. It was a pro- 
ject that should be backed by the whole school, 
each class sharin.g in the work beforehand and 
in the praise when a good annual appeared. 
The school needed the year book, but more 
than that the year book needed a school ; and 
it needed the whole school, not just a few upper 
classmen whose talents in the literary or busi- 
ness line, the years had in some measure de- 
veloped. It needed every Freshman, Sopho- 
more, Junior and Senior, talking it, thinking 
it, subscribing for it, getting others to subscribe 
and getting ads for it. The staf^^, postponing 
their lunch for two whole periods gathered in 
solemn conclave. At length after much pro- 
posing and deposing they had a sweet vision of 
lunch almost in hand or in mouth, as it were, 
for they had arrived upon a scheme. It 
wasn't a startlinglv new or original plan, but 
it was w-orkable. Within the next few days the 
information went out from the "J" office, that 
to any group of twenty or more people in the 
school, either previously organized or willing 
now to organize, bringing in four dollars and 
fifty cents worth of business per capita to the 
year book, either in subscriptions or ads, would 
be given a half page in the year book to use 
in any w-ay they mi.ght desire. 

These pictures and writeups are the result 
of the response to this plan. The}- do not 
represent alone a group of people organized 
among themselves. They mean time after 
school taken from personal duties to go into 
the business places all over the city trying for 
ads, almost always gladly given, the subscrip- 
tions of these people and of all the others from 
whom they could separate from seventy-five 

cents and whose signatures they could get on 
the dotted line. They mean a lot of good hard 
cash turned into the year book treasury, but 
more than that they mean the personal interest 
of several hundred people in the year book. 
They mean that when the year book is out 
these people can jKiiiU to certain ads and say, 
"This is the ail that I solicited." They mean 
that not only dollars were brought into the 
year book treasury, but school spirit and 
loyalty were brought in to that great invisible 
treasury that we call our school. And though 
the pages show many groups, they are, after all, 
only one l)ig group, a hard w'orking, wide awake 
crowds of folks boostin,g each in his way to 
put over a big project because the school needed 
a year book and the year book needed a school- 
There are several groups whose quota did 
not come up to that required for the half-page 
space, but whose w-ork was noteworthy. The 
class in Business Writing, composed of students 
in the Junior College, conducted a Direct-by- 
Alail advertising campaign in which each mem- 
ber of the class wrote a series of letters to- 
students in the high school urging them to pur- 
chase year books. This was a campaign in 
which it was of course impossible to measure 

The girls in the A IV Shorthand classes 
mixed business with pleasure and decided that 
they would have a party as soon as they aver- 
aged two subscriptions to the year book for 
each member in the class. \Ve understand 
that they are to have their party in a few days. 
The "J" Literary Club, under Miss Jones, 
contributed forty dollars in subscriptions and 
advertisements, while a group of industrial and 
trade students from the Plumbing Department 
sold about thirty copies. 

To Room j09 goes especial honor : It has 
the enviable record of being 100% in subscrip-

Clubs That Made Possible the New En&lish Club Room 

The above five pictureh represent Miss Gil- 
pin's five English classes, which are organized 
into clubs, the purpose of which is not only to 
teach the student the required English work but 
also to educate them along other lines. For ex- 
ample, the chairman learns how to preside at 
a meeting according to Roberts Rules of Order. 
The Secretary learns how to write minutes' 
correctly. The treasurer learns somethiiTg 
about book-keeping (for we have dues and a 
bank account. ) We also have committees who 
learn how to work together and make reports 
properly. We are kind and thoughtful too, 
for we have our flow-er committee which sends 
flowers to any members of our club who may 
be sick. We learn how to vote, for we have 
our regular election every Tuesday and the 
Judges of Election count the votes. Every 
week we have new officers so that everyone 
will have a chance to learn the duties of each 
office. Each club has dues of from five to ten 
cents a week. This organization of classes also 
helps to develop initiative and teaches self 

Each club has a business meeting and a pro- 
gram every Friday during their regular class 
period. For their program the Freshman class- 
es give current topics from the Literary Digest, 
but the Juniors have debates. While these are 
organized on the same plan as University de- 
bating teams and we learn to judge argu- 
ments and fallacies, yet they certainly are a 
lot of fun too, for we have some exciting times. 
The debates close with a joint debate between 
the two Junior Clubs, the losers to furnish the 
eats for a picnic. 

In spire of all our work we have lots of fun, 
too. The Thrifty Crusaders invited the nrem- 
bers of the Best Ever Club to a picnic. The 
Jolly Juniors and the Top Notch Club invited 
the J.' T. H. S. Boosters to one and finally^ in 
the best spirit of co-operation both picnicking 
parties feasted together. 

Aliss Giljiin has had her classes organized 
into clubs for the past ten or twelve years. 
Most of these years they have given the greater 
part of their money for philanthropical pur- 
poses away from home. They supported nint 
French orphans and helped starving Russians 
and Europeans, the near east and others. But 
this year since we have such a wonderful new 
building we decided to turn our attention and 
our treasury toward home 

Something new! An English club room. It 
is to be a nice cozy homelike room with a 
fireplace at once end and book cases full of 
books on each side and a rug on the floor and 
a library table in the center of the room with 
a tapestr}' cover and tapestry hangings to 
match and cozy chairs (rocking chairs, too) and 
lamps and classic pictures on the wall and 
everj'thing imaginable. It really sounds too 
good to be true for school, doesn't it ? 
But we hope it will be true. Then stu- 
dents can come there and read and look 
at the pictures, and it will develop their love 
of cultural and good literature and arts. Some 
da^r we hope to have a projection lantern and 
even a radio. Each club is to buv something 
for the room, and it is hoped that the club 
next year will continue the work. This brilliant 
idea was suggested by our teacher. Miss Gilpin, 
and with the co-operation of Doctor Smith 
and Miss Gilpin's help we hope to carry the 
project through. The five clubs united on this 
project, and they were so eager to obtain money 
for their work that they held a bakery sale at 
which they made about fifty dollars. With 
this money and a little more they bought Mark 
Twain's complete works in twenty-five volumes 
and James Whitcomb Riley's works in ten 
volumes for the club room. Then with their dues 
each class is going to buy something else for 
the room.

PUBLIC SPEAKING (Periods 5-6)

PUBLIC SPEAKING (Periods 11-12) 


J. T. H. S. 
May 18, 1923 
Dear Jean : 

In ,\oi;r last letter you said you didn't think 
our public speaking class was snappy, and if 
you still feel that \va\- just drop in during one 
of our trials or debates. We have a peppy 
teacher, and everybody in the first public 
speaking class has caught it. It's infectious!! 

When it was announced that we could have a 
half page in the Year Book for getting ninety- 
nine dollars worth of ads and Year Book 
suljscriptions. everyl)ody got busy and brought 
home the bacon. 

But how could our class be otherwise than 
snappy, for if there is the slightest neglect on 
the part of the student it calls forth a snappy 
lecture from our snappy teacher. 

Our Public Speaking class furnished a good 
share of the material that made up the cast for 
the Senior Play, and went over the top in 
selling tickets for Ijoth the Senior and Junior 
College plays 

Now I think you will agree that we are a 
snappy class, have a snappy teacher and do 
snappy wcrk. 

Ruth Brannon. 

Dear Jean. 

Just cast your piercing eyes upcn this picture 
of the fifth and sixth period public speaking 
class. Don't you envy us? We really are 
pretty good even if our looks do deceive us. 
When we go over to the Lutheran church all 
you can see or hear is pep. There's pep in 
our speeches, there's pep in cur actions, there's 

pep in the very atmosphere. Going in and out, 
Ijackward and forward, pep is just the same in 
us. We have always been on the job wlien- 
ever there were play tickets to sell, or some 
activity to boost either in our school or out- 
side. Just one hint from me. Jean when you 
enter J. T. H. S. be sure to sign up for Puldic 
Speaking. If you like to lie original, here's 
your chance get in your stall. You'll have eats, 
and fun and work and then — you'll have a 
chance to be at last — Like this — Behold! This 
wondrous class ! 

Your Pal, 

Edith Gibler. 

11th AND 12th PERIODS 

Dear Jean : 

As I was going to my hotel I was surprised to 
see an undertaker's ad which read, "Why walk 
around half dead when we can bury you for a 
cheaper price?" Extraordinary ad? Yet there 
are many such people. Immediately that brought 
to mind a picture of the most living and pep- 
py people I know. They are the 11th and 12th 
Public Speaking class and their famous in- 
structor. I had the pleasure of being present 
at their Valentine and May Day program, their 
banquet, debates, trial, and Senior Play. I 
must admit that never, in all my years of 
travel and experience, have I enjoyed students' 
work so thoroughly as I did on these occa- 
sions. Thev are Public Spirited as well as 
Public Speaking folk, and they back all the 
school activities. Although I have gained my 
fame and am well along in years I still regret 
not having taken Public Speaking. I will en- 
close their picture. 

Your Old Friend, 

Winnie Jay.

The Stick-To-It Club 

If yuu d(jn't IjeliuVL- we can "stick-to-it" ju^t 
look at the all day suckers, ( |.jll\-poi)s in Flap- 
per talk). And if you're still in doubt listen 
to this : The day after the announcement about 
winning a half page in the year liook we de- 
cided, in our peppy English class to have a 
half page. Next meeting Dorothy Emerson and 
Mattie Brady reported eighty-one dollars worth 
of ads. That inspired us. We determined to 
get a full page (one hundred and eighty dollars 
worth of business!) or bust. The whole nine- 
teen of us got to work; ami in ks^ than a week 
the total jumped to one Imndrrd t\vent\'-seven 
dollars. Every Sticker br,>ii.t;ht Ins own snb- 
rvcrijition and one ni' re extr,-[, ami lliiis we went 
over the tO]!. 

Choosing a name for our club was next. Lots 
of snappy names were suggested until someone 
nominated "LolK'-pops." This gave our readv- 
witted teacher. Miss Mabel Hunt, an idea. She 
.su.ggested "Stick-to-it" with all of the Stickers 
sucking lolly-pops (in the picture). Of course 
the response was unanimous. Miss Hunt treat- 
ed us to the lolly-pops, and there \'ou are! 

From the very first dav the .^HI English 
Class, eleventh and twelfth I't^riods, has been 

full of iiep 

d Rt 


the class a pleasant hour ii 
one. The members 
gled through the s 
Webster's speeches, 
teresting bv st. -ries 

stead ( 



d te.ieber patiently- strug- 

.\i\\ < i Washington's and 

l'',ven this was made in- 

nd extra reports. 

We entered debates and speech making w^th 
real aeti m Tin debates \\ere fiery and well 
argued, bnt best of all were the salesmen's 
speeches Nearly all of the speakers either 
gave out samples (including chewing gum and 
peanuts) or demonstrated their goods. Jimmy 
Lordon was Jack Parson's demonstrator for 
roller skates and showed us some fancy steps. 
Maurice Burgess sold Clay Beeson an auto, 
his denionstration car being one of the spring 
and key variety. (Wind 'em up and they spin 
around the room). .A toy balloon vender kept 
us roaring in an impersonation of the well 
known circus salesman 

Poems and versihcati' n brou.ght more fun in 
the form of limericks and funny verses, some of 
which appear in the Year Book. 

And yet all of the Stick-To-Its agrej they've 
never soaked in more English in one semester. 

An Englishman and an .American were dis- 
cussing the lar.gest building they bad seen. 

Englishman: 'I think Lomlon has the larg- 
est buildin,gs." 

American: "New York lias the largest, be- 
cause wlu'ii I was working on the top story one 
morning 1 dropjied a hammer and wdicn I left 
for lunch at noon it fell on niv head." 


The man had skidded on the sli|)pery bridge 
and gone over into the river, crashing 
the ice. -A. passerby noticed him floundering in 
the chill}' water and shouted: 

"Keep cool and I'll save you!" 

"Well," chattered the victim, "if I w-as as 
sure of your being able to save me as I am 
of keeping cool I would quit saying my prayers 
this minute."

The clubs and their work are : 

Jolly Juniors — 3-4 periods. 

Motto :^"B-" (Be square). 

They decided to use their money to buy bcok 
cases for the club room and to use the ba'anc- 
toward a rug. 

Top Notch Club — 5-6 periods. 

Motto. — "Always up — never down." 

They decided to buy a picture and frame and 
to help pav for the book cases. 

The Best Ever Club— 11-12 periods. 

Motto: — "Laziness travels so slow that pov- 
erty soon overtakes it." 

They decided to buy a picture and frame it. 
James Donahue offered to donate it in the 
name of his class. They also decided to com- 
plete an album of authors' pictures which was 
started by a last _vear's club. 

Thrifty Crusaders— 13-14 periods. 

Motto : — "A penn}' a day helps thrift every 

They decided to buy a glass and a frame to 
hold the names of all the members of the five 
clubs who started the English Club Rotrn. .At

a lamp and cards for the projection lantern 
(They certainly are thrifty and live up to their 

J. T. H. S. Boosters. 

Motto: — "We can do it; try us!" 

Last, but not by any means least. In fact 
these freshmen boys are about the most cner 
getic, and we simply couldn't get along with- 
out them. They decided to Ijuy a picture and a 
cover for the Library table. 

If it hadn't been for the generosity of these 
J. T. H. S. Boosters some of the other clubs 
couldn't have been represented in the Year 
Book, and so they deserve special mention for 
they secured $234.50 for advertisements. The 
Best Ever Club secured $80.00, the Jollv Juniors 
$30.00, the Thriftv Crusaders $18.00, the Top 
Notch $9.00 Tl rough the J. T. H. S. Boosters' 
kindness they took the same space as the rest 
of the clubs and donated the balance to the 
others who w'ere in need. 

All pu^h for the English Club Room! 

Miss Haniill: What do you mean by

Are You Going to College? 

Every High School student must answer 
this question. Some will go; others will 
go to work. To the latter attention is 
called to the value of spare time study with 
an institution which has enrolled close to

years. The I. C. S. produce results.

On his shoulder. 


I'd love to be a senior 

And with the seniors stand, 
A fountain pen behind my ear, 

A note book in my hand. 
I wouldn't be an angel. 

For angels have to sing, 
I'd rather be a senior 

And not do anything.

In promulgating your esoteric cogitations, or 
articulating your superficial sentimentalities and 
amicable, philosophical or psychological observa- 
tons, beware of platitudinous ponderosity. Let 
your conversational communications possess a 
clarified conciseness, a compact comprehensible- 
ness, a coalescent consistency and concatenated 
cogency. Eschew all conglomerations of flatulent 
garrulity, jejune babblement, and asinine affecta- 
tions. Let your extemporaneous descantings and 
unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility 
with out rhodomontade or thrasonical bombast. 
Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic prefundity, psit- 
taceous vacuity, ventriloquial verbosity, and veni- 
loquient vapidity. Shun double-entrendres, pru- 
rient jocosity and pestiferous profanity, obscurent 
or apparent. 

In other words talk planly, truthfully, sensibly, 
purely, mean what you say; say what you mean, 
and "Don't Use Big Words."

"That's some kid — got a good head — I'll 
watch him." That is what a Joliet banker 
recently said when a fifteen year old boy tO(3k 
a little money out of his savings account to 
pay the first premium on a life insurance 
policy. Being "watched" with a friendly 
interest by the banker means a great deal to 
any young man. 

Boys and girls with "good heads" and good health are invited by 
the oldest life insurance company in America, The Mutual Life of 
New York, to become members. This company is composed entirely 
of its policy holders, and they participate in its dividends. Its forms 
of insurance afford you an investment as well as protection. 

The e.xamination for insurance is a rather simple matter, but when 
a policy is issued, it is a sort of certificate that some pretty wise fel- 
lows in the head office expect you to live a long, long time. 

Send me your name, address and age, and let me show you how 
little it will cost for a policy and membership in the good old Mutual 
Life. Or, if you prefer, you may call upon me for full explanation 
and figures, or let me call at your home. 

The Mutual Life insures men and women from fifteen to seventy 
years of age. This invitation is extended to all.

Advice to the Juniors 

Juniors and tliosc who arc interested in the 
affairs of the High School!! Theoretically it 
should be an honor to you Juniors to be ad- 
dressed by a Senior. But the accepted order 
of things seems to be overturned. When I was 
told that I was to give the address to the Jun- 
iors. 1 was informed in this way: "The faculty- 
has decided to confer an honor upon vou : you 
are to give the address to the Juniors." This 
seems to prove that instead of its being an 
honor for the lower classmen to be addressed 
hy an upper classman, it is now an honor for 
an upiier classman to address the lower class- 
men. This is a revolution. Perhaps next year 
.\-ou. the Seniors then, will supijort the Junior- 
Senior reception. 

I shall not renn'nd you of any of your individ- 
ual mistakes, or of the ridiculous things that 
some of you have done. In the first place, it is 
tmfair competition, for you have four years of 
our school life from which to select ridiculous 
things, while I have only three of yours. .\nd 
second, it is tmfair because onl\- those who 
know that tlu\ have nothing worthy to say 
of themselves trx' to appear great b\- ridiculing 

In this last .\'ear, Juniors, you had three men 
on the heav\weight Basketball team, while the 
Seniors had two. Vou had three good men on 
the football team, and the Seniors had nine. 
Secor on the track team ran away with honors, 
while our Senior president broke the confer- 
ence javelin record by hurling it thirteen feet, 
one inch farther than the previous record. 
I. less and Wilhclmi made all conference teams. 
In the Glee Club Seniors were selected as the 
soloists. In the French Club Seniors held offi- 
cial jiositions. Including the last two vears the 
present Senior girls have been the most popu- 
lar with the R. O. T. C, while in our Sopho- 
more year one of our \oung ladies was a 

I have tried to give an unprejudiced account 
of the activities of the Senior and Junior 

classes. .\nd from the apj.iearance of that ac- 
count the Junior class will have to begin their 
Senior year with an unprecedented change in 
attitude toward most of the school activities to 
reach the record set by the Senior class. There 
IS not enough social intercourse in vour class to 
put you on a friendly basis with "your fellow 
students. In your Sophomore year vou did 
not have a Sophomore partv because vou would 
have had to have it in the afternoon, as all 
the Sophomore classes have had theirs before 
.\ou. In your Junior \ear you did not have a 
Junior party because you were not energetic 
enough to collect or make, the monev necessary 
for both a Junior party and the Junior-Senior 
Reception, although yon gave the Seniors who 
attended your reception a very delightful eve- 
ning's entertainment. If you cannot finance 
\our parties, how can \ou finance your vear 
book." It is an unwritten law in the school 
that each class better the record of the class 
preceding it. and also add something to the 
written and unwritten laws cf the school which 
that class nun- be proud of with the passing 
.\ears. So. Juniors, if \ciu live u|) to the 
established customs of the school and make the 
record of your class better than the records of 
the classes preceding, you can readily hear 
without resentment my reiteration that you 
must begin your Senior year with an unpreced- 
ented change in attitude toward school activities. 
It may be effective for me to tell \ ou to 
mend \our wa\s. Init my problem is to try to 
show you where \ou can improve, because it 
is only by doing; it is seldom that we cannot 
think back and see where we could have im- 
proved our former methods. So. Juniors, I 
am trying to show you how you may improve 
upon our Senior year through the benefit of 
our experience, (" a whisper to the wise is suffi- 
cient, while a rock stirreth not the soul of a 
fool.") So may I hope that you shall use these

Oration for Ivy Day 

Presentation of Betsy Ross Fla,g 

Friends and Schoolmates : 
It is with pleasure I accept the honor of be- 
ing able, as president of the senior class, to 
present the Betsv Ross flag to vou on our l\\ 

As I glance at this flag it reminds me of 
that story of the Battle of New Orleans — how 
in the midst of shot and shell, a young gun boy, 
when he saw old glory shot to the ground by 
an enemy's shell, leaped to the top of the forti- 
fication, and replaced the shattered staffs with a 
ram-rod, and gloriously it remained where it 
was stationed. 

Fellow schoolmates, what was it that prompt- 
ed a youth of our owm age to do such a peril- 
ous deed?^ Was it a command from his 
officer.' No! It was a connnand from his own 
heart, his own soul, to protect the object he 
loved the best. Oh, what a wonderful appre- 
ciation of his country he must have had. 

It was on this occasion nine years ago that 
the Daughters of the American Revolution 
presented to the senior class this flag, that 
means so much to us, that has been an in- 
spiration to us to be just, and democratic to- 

nfiuenced these men in 
influences us in time of 

wards all. Just e 
time of war, just 

The senior class of "2j" like a "hawk" has 
watched this flag. She has ever kept it floating 
above her head as a motto. It has spurred us 
en to greater things. It has made us feel the 
opportunity it has found for us in the past. 
We honor and are ever willing to carry out the 
principles for which the flag stands. 

When this glorious old flag was handtd down 
to us last year as Juniors, we were instructed 
to pass it on, and such has been the tradition 
of the Betsy Ross Flag. And in turn each class 
has been responsible for its protection. The 
senior class of "23" now regrets that its sentinel 
period has passed. .And there has ever been 
in our midst, one who has seen that w:- have 
done our dut\- courageously and ri;htl\-. and 
that man has been Dr. Smith. 

Now as president of the Senior class, in 
their name, I present to you, Juniors, the Sen- 
iors of next year, this Betsy Ross flag to be 
an inspiration, and means of guidance to you; 
your duty now is to watch and protect this

line can afford to 


love and adventur 

Frances is working at a talile: Lois enters. 

Lois — What is the latest news from the ex- 
cavators? Have they found an^'thing more? 

Frances — They found about all the records 
they'd expected and a lot more too. You 
should see some of the crazy things they've 
found — can't imagine what they were used 
for. It certainly must have been a treacher- 
ous and liarbarous age. 

L — Have you finished the report iur the 
archeological society? 

F — Listen, I'll read it to you; see if it sounds 
all right. (Reading) "In the year 1992 the 
earth shifted about three de.grees two minutes, 
making the climate of the Great Lakes region 
much warmer, so hot in fact, that vegetation 
refused to grow, and the population departed 
for a more favorable climate. Soon after that 
the whole world, and especially the continent 
of Xorth America, suffered a period of violent 
storms and earthquakes so that the progressive 
cities of Joliet, Chicago, Milwaukee, and New 
Lenox were partially destroyed and embedded. 
The Great Lakes dried up, and then followed 
an era of sandstorms. In the year of 2391 the 
earth returned to its former position: the 
country became less dry: vegetation again ap- 
peared upon the land lieneath which the 
ancient city of Joliet lay buried." Xow, you 
read awhile. 

L — (continuing) "During this period of time 
since the 2l)th century, great wars have l)een 
fought, great nations brought low, small dem- 
ocracies exalted. Civilization went through a 
care-free irresponsible stage, and consequently 
there is little known about many of the famous 
people who have been reinemliered through the 
ages because of their great deeds. Research 
workers have discovered that many of the great 
people came from the Joliet region and so 
have been excavating the town and the Joliet 
Township High School, which was the best 
school at that time in the world." 

F — That will put the society to sleep. Funny 
coincidence; it seems that in the 20th century, 
they considered some discoveries they'd made 
by excavations very important also. Their 
papers are full of the accounts of finding a King 
Tut's tomb. That wasn't anything though 
compared to finding this whole school. An- 
other odd thing that the society will proljably 
appreciate is that the majority of the famous 
people we were to look up graduated from 
this school in 1923 — just 2,000 years ago. 

L — That class must have been unusual. 
What are these funny looking things? Were 
they dug. up this morning? Let's look at them 
for recreation — then we will feel more like 

F — All right we may get some information 
for our report. (Looking at book) The last 20 
or 3(.! pages are full of funny, dumb advc-'ise- 

L — How crude! Read some of them; the\- 
sound so senseless.

Please 'Her', Come to Helen Becker's Cloth- 
ing Store for Men.

suggestions to strengthen yourselves in the 
resolution to try harder, and to succeed. When 
you find everything going wrong, turn that 
spaghetti spine into an iron rod, and fight for 
things you sincerely think are right, and you are 
bound to come out on top. Perhaps some of 
you are tired of studying and think that you 
can do better if you leave school for a year, or 
even do not return at all. If an}' of you think 
this way, in the name of all that is for your 
good, give yourself a good talking to and see 
that you make up your mind to acquire ail the 
education you can. For, fellow students, when 
you leave school and work for a year, you get 
out of the studying habit, and when the next 
year comes around, you won't want to go back, 
and in nine out of ten chances ytui do not 
come back. If you thiuK that you do not need 
to attend school, remember that there never 
was a man on earth who really made good with- 
out a great store of knowledge, and there is 
no better and quicker way to lay a firm foun- 
dation for that knowledge than a college or 
at least a high school education. 

So, Juniors, it is you upon whom this institu- 
tion will depend in the following year. You 
must see that its well founded traditions are 
carried out, its traditions in athletics, its social 
affairs, its "J" and its year book, its Senior 
play and its Senior memorial. You will be its 
finished product, to he ashamed of or proud of. 
So, students, let your standards be of the high- 
est, your will power strong, and your co-opera- 
tion great. Then you will be able to set newer 
and lietter standards of school life, so we 


of the outgoing Senior class may look back 
to the old school and see and feel that it is 
something to be proud of, and that our trust 
has been given into competent and willing

yourselves. For under this old glory, the Betsy

cue Howard Johnson when his glass factor;'

L — That report haunts nie. Let's do some 
more. You tell me wliat you found out today. 

F — We discovered 1)y some old mannscripts 
that Marjorie Francis, a student of this school, 
after much brilliant experiment, disapproved 
Einstein's Theory of Relativity, and that Agnes 
Fricke was the one that proved conclusively 
that the people on Mars were all left handed 
and pigeon-toed. Laxton Byrne, who discov- 
ered the 5th dimension in 1955, also was a 
student of the class of 1923. 

L — Father du.g up a book belongin.s.; to Mil- 
dred Pohlman yesterday, evidently slie be-

almost proved that the world was oblong? 

F — Yes, but what do you suppose we found 
today? .\ funny leather bo.x ))elonging to Har- 
riet Osburnsen. 

L — Harriet Osl)urnsen? Her name sounds 

F — Don't you reniemV)er studying her in his- 
tory? She was the great vampire who ruined 
James Creighton's career — if he was one of the 
world's greatest orators with Harriet; what 
would he have been without her? 

L — But if she about ruined Crei.ghton's 
career, she made Leighton .Alberg immortal. 
He poured out his broken heart into exquisite 
verse which made him as great a poet in In- 
line, as Robert Brummond, the marvelous 
nature poet was in his. It was also liecause 
of her that Charles Fish sought to mend liis 
broken heart by a wild expedition in wliich he 
discovered the West Pole. 

F — "Want to look at the l)ox? It is a funny 
looking tiling. What did they use it for, any-

Winfield Creighton went here. I remember 
him. He was the world's greatest lover. Re-

there wasn't any more romance in the world?

Elmer Brockman — remember the picture of 
Elmer called the "Ideal Lover"?

forces to victory in Turkey, was a woman, fam-

Three Chinese laundrymen there were 

Who toiled the live-long day. 
Till one broke down from overwork 

And went insane they say. 
His fellow brethren deemed it wise 

To take him down the track 
And put him in a madhouse 

Till his wits he should get back. 
A fast express roared by just then 

And thru the trio cut ; 
That evening on the tracks were found 

Two washers and a nut. 

A Flapper's prayer: "Dear Lord. I ask 
nothing for myself, only give mother a son- 

Have you ever 

Been some place 

And caught the glance 

Of the prettiest girl 

There — and have her 

Smile — a wonderful smile — 

And walk toward you 

With both hands outstretched 

And the loveliest light in 

Her eyes — 

.And go right past you and 

Kiss the boy — right behind you? 
A golf ball sailing thru the air 
Passed by a guy a humming 
And when somebody hollered "Fore" 
He thought three more were coming.
