Jolict High, we're always loyal, 

To thee we'll e'er be true; 
With a battle cry of "Onward;" 

We will fight for Gold and Blue 
Rah! Rah! 

Jolict High is on to battle; 

We will conquer every foe. 
We have a fighting spirit 

On to Victory we will go.

Words — Jane Almberg Music — Ruby McAllister 


With this farewell we leave you 
To try our strength with fate; 
But may you still remember 
The class of twenty-eight. 
With your watchwords to guide us, 
We pledge to noble deeds; 
We'll strive to make you famous, 
And meet the world's great needs. 
Great statues, halls and paintings 
Will vanish soon or late — 
But in your hearts will linger 
The class of twenty-eight. 
Farewell, dear school of champions 
Your fame keeps us elate — 
You'll honor, in our absence, 
The class of twenty-eight. 

Chorus : 
All hail the class of '28; 
Raise high her colors fair; 
But louder cheer J.T.H.S. 
The blue and gold fore'er.

Our lives shall be as yours, O fragrant Ivy ! 
Who start your climb in life so low and small, 
Who, reaching, fighting upward, ever upward, 
May sometime climb up to God's wondrous hall. 
The fight up to the heights has only started, 
In years to come you'll climb far up the wall. 
You must not lose your verdancy so glorious 
Lest by the way you falter and you fall. 

Our lives like yours have started very lowly, 

Our lifelong fight in this world just begun. 

The years of toil we've spent have been rewarded, 

In life a firm foundation we have won. 

Our verdancy is that great store of knowledge. 

Our earthly fight is up the business wall; 

May high ideals be with us in the battle, 

And may we climb up to God's wondrous hall. 

Robert Folk, '28. 

SENIOR PLAY (Continued) 

"Being poor has its compensations," said John Bruce; ar.d he certainly found 
it true. 

John Bruce, a wealthy Wall Street magnate, returned to his home town with 
the idea of building a factory for his people. The plot of land John wants for his 
purpose is owned by Abner Ketcham and is being made into a cemetery. Abner 
refuses to sell his land, but John finds a way of securing it, through Benny Ketcham, 
a super salesman and Abner 's nephew. 

John thinks that everybody is nice to him only because he had money and all 
they want is financial help from him in some way or other. Charles Martin, John's 
business manager thinks differently and bets him a thousand doilars to a big red 
apple that if he were poor, people would be nice to him anyway. John decides to 
try a scheme and see whether this is true. 

John evidently found that Martin was right, for a startling announcement of a 
big business failure is made, in which Mr. Bruce owns only a few shares, causes all 
the people to suppose he had lost all. On this reputation he takes the position of 
hotel clerk and wins the respect of all and also wins the love of Nora Mullet for 
himself alone.

Characters: 1. Skipper Alfred Bay. 

2. Authoress Miss Lewis. 
Setting: Small Porch. 


Miss Lewis approaches porch preparing to write and she finds Skipper Alfred 
Bay on the mat before the door. 

Skipper Bay — Lady, could I interest you in some wire kitchen ware? 

Miss Lewis — I have everything I need, and I am also too busy to buy. Besides 
it is my principle never to buy on the stoop. 

Skipper Bay shoulders his bundle of goods and turns to the steps with a cheer- 
ful smile. 

Skipper Bay — Good Morning. 

Miss Lewis — I believe I could use a gridiron. 

Skipper Bay — Why certainly. It is natural to all to experience a change of 
mind. Over little things as over great. And both you and I are no more than 
children of nature. 

Miss Lewis buys a gridiron. 

Old man again turns to the road but he calls back. 

Skipper Bay — I could tell you how to make oatcakes if you'd like me to. Ma'am. 
You'd find it useful for that thing you've bought. 

Miss Lewis — You must be Scotch. 

Skipper Bay — English Ma'am, but born and raised in Scotland. Bay is my 
name. Alfred Bay of the Good Ship 1928. Aye, the Good Ship 1928. Ma'am I 
could tell you — I've seen — (Skipper Bay goes nearer to Miss Lewis with outstretched 
hand. He is seeing visions of the past.) 

Our ship, among those of other proud nations, won first place at the Springfield 
State Exhibit held in August 192 7. Again 44 of the crew were elected to the Key- 
stone and Torch Honor Society. Aye — 13 of them in the Junior year. And for 
the most brilliant of the mountain-climbers there were special rewards. In our 
Freshman year at sea George Switzer and Helen Rice won the Robert Adam Awards. 
Helen Rice also had the highest average of any girl in the whole fleet in 1924. 
In 1925 George Switzer and Gail Yaggy won the award. In our third year George 
Switzer and Ruth Frob'sh won. George Switzer outdid himself (having the highest 
average of any boy in school.) Special awards were won by Raymond Tremelling in 
June, 1926, for winning the State Band Solo Contest. In 1927 Helen Rice and 
Harold Emiley received awards for winning the State Orchestra Solo Contest. And 
the National Championship Band — 25% of it was made up of our crew. But I 
must not keep you from your work, Ma'am. I'll be getting along. Good day to you. 

Miss Lewis hastily rings a bell. 

Ruth, the housekeeper, appears. 

(Continued on Page 192) 


Mr. Chairman, Friends and Juniors: 

We have come to a parting of the ways at last. We are sorry, indeed, on your 
account, Juniors, for we know you will have a hard time getting along without us. 
We'll have to admit, however, that your choice in taking such an outstanding class 
as ours for your model was a decision upon which you should be congratulated, and 
one which may ultimately enable you to reach those starry heights to which you 
so zealously aspire. Of course you will have to work very hard in order to approach 
the standards that we have set. You must endeavor, however, insofar as your ability 
permits, to uphold the ideals and traditions of the school. 

For instance, you should try to develop a girls' basketball team like ours, and 
to contribute a goodly number of star men to the boys' basketball teams and football 
teams as we have done. Nor is athletics the only field of school activity to which 
you must give heed. You must attempt to fill our places in the Student Council, 
J-Hi Stars, Orchestra, Band and many other extra-curricular organizations in which 
we have held leadership. 

We know very well that advice about personal conduct is hard to take, but really 
you must outgrow your childish ways. I was shocked almost to death one evening, as 
I was coming down the hall, to find La Verne Richards and Mabel Snider playing 
Post-Office. If they had been Seniors, you may be sure they would have been more 
circumspect in their actions. 

Worse yet, your behavior away from home has been shameful, as when some 
of your notorious members were caught playing leap-frog over chairs at the Rockford 
Hotel by the House Detective, thereby defaming the glorious name of J.T.H.S. 
which we have so zealously striven to hold aloft. 

Nor will outgrowing these babyish ways alone assure your attaining your starry 
goal. In addition, you must study diligently that you may have an honor roll which 
will not compare too unfavorably with that of your predecessors whose interest in 
their studies precluded a Senior party. 

The production of the Senior play is a stupendous undertaking; as yet you have 
shown no outstanding talent in this field, but we have hopes that during the ensuing 
year, under Miss Dicky's patient and dynamic tutelage, you will be able to acquire 
sufficient skill to meet with honor, this crucial obligation. 

And so we wish you success in the future. May you be worthy of our faith in 

Irene Mahaffey 



Mr. Chairman, Dr. Smith, Seniors, and Friends: 

This week means a great deal in the lives of all of those who are graduating in 
this class. It means on one hand the end of several years of traveling along the 
more or less hard road of knowledge. It is the end of the first step in' gaining our 
knowledge of the world. On the other hand it is the beginning of a new world which 
is opening before us as a road with many forks. Some will take that fork which 
leads to college, universities or other institutions of learning. Others will take that 
fork which leads to business schools and business. But to all of them, whichever 
road they take, or whatever they become in the future, this week will stand out as a 
milestone in their lives. 

For the last four years the members of the graduating class have been coming 
to this building, trying to become acquainted with knowledge, learning to understand 
and uphold the ideals which are a part of the scholastic training that everyone ought 
to have. They will look back with pleasure to their years that are just past, to the 
friendships which have helped to make these years most pleasant ones and which 
will remain through the years to come, to the honors gained by them which help to 
honor the school, and finally to the teachers who have helped them in the pursuit 
of learning. 

And now as the time nears when the members of the graduating class must 
separate on their different courses, they wish to do something which will show their 
appreciation and their love of this school, which will remain after they are long gone 
and will remind others that they were once in this school of which we are so proud. 

So with this purpose in mind the committee charged with this most important 
duty of choosing a class memorial have chosen a mural painting. 

It is now my pleasure as a representative of the senior class to entrust this 
painting to your care, Dr. Smith, to be held as a trust sacred to all the classes which 
are to follow this one. 

From this time forward this picture belongs not to this class alone but to all 
the classes which have graduated before us and who will come after us. To the 
Seniors this picture means a great deal. Through it we hope to express to Dr. Smith 
and to the Faculty our appreciation of what they have done to help us to a better 
understanding of what education stands for. To those who follow us we hope that 
it will be an inspiration to help them to a better understanding of the ideals of this 
school, to awaken in them a liking for beautiful things and finally to help them to 
attain high standards of character.

Dr. Smith, Mr. Harris, and Fellow Students: 

Fourteen years ago the local chapter of the D.A.R. presented to the senior class 
of the Joliet Township High School a Betsy Ross flag. This flag was adopted by 
our forefathers in the early days of the Revolution, and under its fold they pro- 
claimed themselves a free and independent people. Its red typifies the blood which 
was shed for freedom, its white is emblematic of the purity of the principles upon 
which our government was organized, and its blue represents the devotion and the 
loyalty of the founders of the Republic. 

Our Betsy Ross flag has become a precious part of the tradition of our school; 
it has witnessed our growth and has inspired us to finer achievements. We are 
fortunate indeed that an occasion has thus been established for recalling and for 
re-dedicating ourselves to the ideals which are symbolized in the flag. 

As president of the Class of 1928, I present this flag to you, the Class of 1929. 
Your duty is to watch and protect it thruout the coming year. Love, honor, and 
reverence it and the principles for which it stands. May you prove yourselves 
worthy of your trust! 

Bv Donald Munch. 



Dr. Smith, Mr. Munch, and Fellow Students: 

We accept this Betsy Ross Flag as a symbol of the alliance between education 
and our state, an alliance in accord with the assertion of Diogenes that "The founda- 
tion of every state is the education of its youth." We students working in our 
classes and in other school activities are as truly in the service of the nation as any 
adult. Our part is to do our best to assure a lasting foundation for our state. 

And so, Mr. President, I am honored and delighted to assume the protection of 
this beloved flag on behalf of the Class of '29. We promise to guard it loyally 
during our year as seniors and then to pass it on to the Class of 1930. But the 
traditions and the lofty ideals of which it is emblematic we shall always hold in high 
regard and strive to maintain thruout our lives. 

Bv Robert Harris.

This is the class of '29 speaking. All hail, for this is the last time that this 
famous and wonderful class speaks as Juniors, for when next we speak we will be the 
mighty Seniors. 

But, looking backward, on the past year, we look with pride upon our achieve- 
ments in scholarship, music, athletics and in social affairs. 

This year we have given two parties, the Junior circus party which had all the 
novelty and fun of a circus, and the Junior-Senior prom, "the million dollar dance" 
which we gave in honor of the class of '28 to show our appreciation of their merits 
and to wish them in saying "farewell" much success in their undertakings in the 
future. May they be as successful in later life as they have been in J.T.H.S.

Coach Becker — 'Beck" is known all over school as the head of the heavy- 
weight coaching staff and a go-getter. With ten men from last year's football squad 
back, he organized a championship team. E. Aurora was the only team to cross the 
heavies' goal line all season to enable them to win. In basketball his team won third 
place in the Big Seven Conference, won the district tournament and was defeated 
by W. Aurora in the semi-final of the sectional tourney. 

Coach Wykoff — "Wyk", head lightweight coach, was sadly handicapped dur- 
ing the year in having less than a handful of his former teams back in either football 
or basketball. He acquitted himself honorably, however. 

Coach Rane — Assistant heavyweight coach and a great help to "Beck'' in 
rounding green material into shape and filling the whole squad with pep. 

Coach Huffoed — An assistant lightweight coach who is always on the job 
scouting out material and getting men to report for practice. 

Coach Fargo — Our head athletic coach and track mentor. His district and 
sectional tournaments turn in more money to the State Athletic association than any 
others in the state. 


The Blue and Gold heavies finished a very successful season, winning eight, 
tying and losing one game. The team showed much fight and wound up in undis- 
puted possession of second place in the conference losing only to East Aurora. 
Joliet rolled up 211 points as to their opponent's 12. All 12 points were scored 
by East Aurora. 

Joliet opened the season against Marseilles. This game proved to be only a 
romp for the Iron men, Marseilles losing 65-0. The team showed much promise 
in this game. 

The following Saturday Joliet played Pontiac, defeating them as decisively as 
Marseilles. With Munch, Rentner, Seppi and Slack leading the offensive the strong 
Blue and Gold team rolled up a 51-0 score against the invaders. 

Coach Becker's pupils journeyed to Freeport a week later to open the confer- 
ence with the Pretzels. A steady driving game won for Joliet on a wet field. Joliet 
made 18 first downs to 3 for the Pretzels. Sabotnik is credited with playing his best 
game here. He seemed to be in every play. With Munch, Rentner, and Emerson 
doing the running the Blue and Gold carried the ball to the 20-yard line where a 
pass, Emerson to Fuller, scored the first touchdown. A few minutes later Munch 
went off tackle from the 12-yard line for Joliet 's second touchdown making the 
final score 13-0. 

The following Saturday Joliet's Iron Men turned back Elgin, sending them 
home with a 12-0 defeat in their bags. The feature of the game was a 70-yard run 
by Slack on return of a punt. The first score came in the first quarter. After a 


series of end runs and line smashes by Emerson, Rentner and Munch, Emerson went 
over for the first touchdown from the eight yard line. Elgin tried hard to score in 
the second quarter, working the ball down to the Joliet 1-foot line where they were 
thrown back three yards in four attempts to score, the credit going to Wekerlin and 
Tub Kelly. The second touchdown came in the third quarter after a series of long 
runs by Rentner and Munch. With the ball on the five yard line Rentner tore off 
tackle for a touchdown, making the final score 12-0. 

Joliet played Harrison Tech the following Saturday, keeping everything under 
cover for East Aurora. The Iron Men had little trouble in winning with a score of 
o-O. Busch was the most consistent gainer and Smatlak, all-Chicago back, played a 
brilliant game in the line. 

Joliet suffered their only set back of the season at the hands of East Aurora by a 
12-3 score. East Aurora scored early in the first quarter being evenly played. In the 
second half Joliet opened up the score when Emerson made a dropkick from the 
25-yard line. Joliet started strong in the second half with Munch and Rentner 
carrying the ball to East's two-yard line when Busch scored on a sweeping end run. 
Officials called the ball back, claiming Aurora was not ready on defense. Again 
Becker's men scored, but a back was in motion and the ball was called back again. 
On the last attempt the Iron Men failed by inches and Aurora punted out of danger. 

On the next kick-off Aurora failed to gain and Joliet by straight football carried 
the oval to the Red 25-yard line. Joliet elected to pass and Witte intercepted and 
ran it back to our 5-yard line. Failing to gain he kicked his second field goal. 

Joliet tried desperately to score in the closing minutes by forward passes. Two 
first downs placed the ball in midfield, but Gosselin intercepted a pass and turned it 
into the only touchdown scored against the heavies all season. 

The Friday after the East High game Joliet played the Lindblom sophs, having 
no trouble in winning 25-0. The second and third teams played most of this game. 

Joliet played in West Aurora's new stadium on the following Saturday, being 
held to a 0-0 tie by a fighting West Aurora team. Joliet had only one real chance to 
score when a series of end runs by Munch and Busch put the ball on the one-yard 
line, but Joliet failed to score in four attempts. Joliet made over 250 yards from 
scrimmage, but used bad judgment in the pinches. Seppi intercepted a pass and 
almost scored. 

For the first time in eleven years Joliet defeated Rockford, and what a defeat 
that was. For 47 minutes of hectic football neither side scored. With only two 
minutes left to play two long passes and Rentner's 30-yard end run put the ball 
on Rockford 's 35-yard line. Then Emerson stepped back to the 44-yard line and 
coolly drop-kicked from a difficult angle for the winning points, the final score being 
3-0. This was a battle between the 2 strongest lines in the conference, with Wenck, 
Rentner, and D. Kelly standing out. The credit for this victory belongs to the line 
as well as to the backfield. It was their splendid work that stopped the hard-hitting

Coach Wykoff started out the season with all but a new team having at the 
start of the season only five veterans back. Folk and Racster in the backfield, 
Mutz and Shannon at guards, and Jones at center. After the first few games Booker 
and Oliver joined the squad. During the season the team won two, lost six, and 
tied one. 


In the first game, Plainfield bowed to the ponies 6-0 in the hottest day imagin- 
able. Because of the heat the game was played in eighths. In the th'.rd quarter 
Brown plunged through center from the four-yard line for a touchdown after 
Henderson and Schmidt had carried the ball down the field. Henderson made the 
point after touchdown by an end run. 


Pontiac met the lights, and both teams battled back and forth in the center of 
the field in a scoreless game 0-0, Brown's punting being the only spectacular work 
of the day. 


In the first conference game the Blue and Gold minors were downed by a fast, 
hard hitting Freeport outfit 19-0. In the first half, the team suffered an attack of 
stage fever and gave the Pretzel's their chance to score 19 points. In the second 
half Joliet came back and played the rest of the game on even terms. Freeport was 
penalized 65 yards and Joliet only IS. 

(Continued on Page 174) 

JONES: — took charge of center — a real man's job 
on any team and bore the brunt of both the 
offensive and defensive work in a creditable 

MUTZ: — another senior, reliable and willing to 
handle a guard position in a manner that will 
cause him to be missed next year. 

BOOKER : — not much in weight but with worlds 
of speed. He was indespensable in carrying the 
ball on end runs and open field plays and a 
regular demon on defense. 

OLIVER: — playing his third year at quarter was 
still able to hold his place in the eyes of the 
fans and showed more speed than ever. 

B. BROWN: — New to the game and to the squad. 
Has a punting toe that would win him a po- 
sition on any team. Will probably become a 
triple threat man next year. 

SCHMIDT: — playing his first year of high school- 
football gave a good account of himself in spite 
of his diminutive size. 

FOLK : — left over from last year's championship 
team was adaptable and versatile enough that 
he could be counted on to deliver the goods 
wherever he was put. 

SECOR: — at end played h : s first year of football 
and with the experience gained should be a 
menace to all foes this fall. 

GARAVAGLIA : — an end, willing, studious, and a 
do or die spirit that more than made up for his 
lack of experience. 

SING : — is a good-sized, good-natured tackle, though 
new to the game came through in fine shape 
and his loss in the final game was keenly felt. 

HENDERSOX : — a real midget and a senior, plaved 
his first and last year of high school football as 
a dodging halfback. 

LINDBLAD : — at tackle was a tower of strength on 
defense and we will all miss him in that position 
when next fall rolls around. 

WM. KELLY : — not being able to stay in school did 
not complete the season. Could he play foot- 
ball? He was Irish ! 

ROBINSON: — at guard was regarded by his op- 
ponents as a small man to be avoided and in 
running interference his work advanced the 
ball many yards. 

REED : — a guard would have been a whirlwind in 
another year but being a senior he must leave us. 








The Joliet High School Heavyweight basketball team won eight out of their 
fifteen games during the playing season. They scored 293 points to their opponent's 
271. Rentner had the scoring honors with seventy points. 

The Blue and Gold heavies opened the season with a practice tilt with Streator 
and lost a hard game by a score of 21-18. 

The second game was the team's first home game, and they satisfied the local 
fans by beating Crane 17-14. 

Elburn won from Coach Becker's charges 19-18 when a foul was called on 
Joliet in the last few minutes of play. Elburn missed, but was given another try, due 
to the booing of the Joliet fans. 

Joliet opened the conference with a victory over East High of Aurora to the 
tune of 24-21. The iihie and Gold took the lead at the start of the game and held 
it till the final gun sounded. The jumping of Rentner, the shooting of Munch and 
the close guarding proved too much for the Aurorans. Joliet made eight field goals 
to six for Aurora. Only Witte's baskets kept East High in the race. 

The Heavies journeyed to Gardner on Friday the 13th and their luck stayed at 
home as they lost 23-14. The game gave Coach Becker a good lineup on his substi- 
tutes as many were used. 

On the next night Harrison Tech of Chicago played the locals and lost 29-11. 
Sohmers and Munch were high point men for Joliet. 

The Watchmakers proved too much for the Blue and Gold on their own floor 
winning from Joliet by the score of 24-9. Taking the lead in the first quarter Elgin 
held it thruout the game. This game was the last one in which Don Munch could 
wear the Blue and Gold uniform of Joliet and all tried hard to make it a victory. 
Long baskets by Harding and Walser spelled defeat for us. 

Next week Joliet trimmed DeKalb in easy style 33-10. The first half gave no 
indication of the score as it ended with Joliet with a two point margin 10-8. The 
third quarter found Joliet with lots of fight left and the scoring showed an improve- 
ment as the frame ended with a ten point lead for the Blue and Gold. In the last 
quarter the Barbs were unable to score a point. 

Coach Becker's charges won a nerve racking game from West High of Aurora in 
the home gym by the narrow margin of 18-15. The game was even thruout the first 
three quarters first one and then the other forged ahead. At the beginning of the 
last frame the score read 15-13 for Aurora and remained that way for the first four 
minutes then Wheeler broke away and made a basket to even things up. Longley 
scored a point via the free throw line and a moment later dribbled down the floor 
and scored a basket to give Joliet a three point win. 


Led by Virgil Dixon, Streator captain, the Downstaters emerged victorious over 
Coach Becker's tired basketeers by the score of 28-12. The Beckermen appeared 
tired from their game with West Aurora the night before. Longley was high point 
man with four markers for Joliet while Hart led the attack for Streator with 16 points. 

Rockford won from the Biue and Gold by the score of 21-19 after two overtime 
periods had been played. At the end of the first quarter Joliet was leading 7-4; at 
the half Rockford was still trailing 12-10, and at the start of the last period the 
score was 15-14 in favor of the Beckermen. At the end of the game the score was 
deadlocked at 17 all. In the first overtime period Bush made a free throw but the 
referee declared he took too much time. In the second extra period Bush made a 
basket and Mead of Rockford followed with a neat shot from the center. Johnson 
duplicated Mead's shot as the gun sounded. This game gave Rockford the conference. 

A last minute rush beat Freeport and enabled the Blue and Gold heavies to 
close the Conference season with a win, 24-23 after an overtime period. Freeport led

RENTNER (Center) : — Secured tip-off consistently 
and drove hard on short shots. Leading scorer. 
Defense and all-'round play greatest seen in 
tournaments. Calumet City game outstanding. 
Ail-Conference Center. 

L. BUSCH (Forward) :— Substitute, whose play 
while not polished, earned him letter. His 
points in overtime won from Freeport. Better 
defensively, in general play. 

WHEELER (Center) :— Shifted from eastern to 
western style of game in one year. Reach made 
him valuable defensively. Opportune intercep- 
tion of passes in Freeport and West Aurora 
games helped win them. 

LONGLEY (Guard) : — One of the leading scorers 
among conference guards. Helped pull West 
Aurora and Freeport games out of fire, by ac- 
curate shots in closing minutes. Good long 
sleat man, with accurate floor pass. 

SLACK (Forward) : — Speed and quick break utiliz- 
ed by turning him into general utility player. 
Used at both guard and forward. Scrappy, 
with quick break and good defense. 

J. BUSH (Forward) : — Best free-thrower on squad. 
Excellent basketball head. Quick break and 
dead eye make him one of best in conference. 
Fast on floor play and good feeder. Work in 
tournaments outstanding. 

D. KELLY (Guard) : — A substitute, whose game 
improved as season progressed. Developed good 
long shot and accurate free throw. Should be 
valuable man next year. 

EMDIN (Forward) : — Long shots his specialty. Ac- 
curate from free line. Taken over on tourna- 
ment squad, he led team in points scored. Keen 
basketball sense. More rugged physique would 
have aided his game. 

OLDANI (Forward) : — A sophomore, whose game 
developed as season progressed. Quick break 
and excellent floor pass. Good eye for basket, 
which, with a little more aggressiveness should 
make him valuable man. 


Coach Wykoff, Emdi 

Oakes (Mgr.), Folk, Rickef, Hunter 

The Lightweight basketball team won 5 out of 12 games and scored 244 points 
to their opponents' 260. Menozzi was high point man with 42 points. Emdin play- 
ing in only 4 games was second with 38 markers. 

The team opened the season with a victory over the All State quintet of Streator 
25-19. Coach Wykoff used a new team each quarter in an effort to weed out his 

On the next start they lost their second game to Crane 24-13. The Crane men 
were too experienced for the green Joliet team and kept in the lead thruout the game. 

Joliet lightweights met little opposition against Elburn, winning, 24-11. The 
visitors were unable to score a basket in the first three quarters, but opened up in the 
last frame and scored four baskets. 

The ponies lost to the speedy East Aurora team by a score of 20-12. Ricker 
opened the scoring with two baskets, but Aurora passed them, making the score 7-4 
at the end of the quarter. During the next quarter only one point was scored and 
that by Joliet. The last half found Coach Thompson's men with more fight and ran 
the score up to 20 while holding the Blue and Gold to 12. 


The minors journeyed to Gardner on Friday the 13th and weren't superstitious 
in the least, winning 19-15. The game was close and gave Joliet another chance to 
try out some of the new material. 


The Blue and Gold lights suffered a defeat at the hands of Harrison Tech, being 
on the wrong end of a 32-20 score. Sipusich of Harrison was the whole show, making 
twenty-three of his team's 32 points. 


A surprise was sprung on Elgin when the youngsters won 20-18 for the first time 
in five years on the Maroon floor. The Elgin minors were in the lead 5-4 at the 
quarter and 13-10 at the beginning of the third quarter. After the intermission the 
Blue and Gold came back with the fight of last year's conference winners and were 
able to win in the last few minutes when Elgin failed to cut their stuff. Spesia did 
much toward the victory, scoring seven points, the last basket making the score 20 
for Joliet. 


The lightweights emerged victorious over DeKalb 24-21 after a hard fight. 
In the first half Joliet had things just about their own way, the score at the half 
being 15-7 for the Blue and Gold. After the half the team seemed to be in no 
doubt as to the outcome and almost lost because of this showing of over-confidence. 
DeKalb crept up until a tie was reached in the last few minutes of play and was 
broken by Menozzi sinking a basket and a free throw to bring the score to 24. 


After beating DeKalb by 3 points the team lost a hard game to West Aurora 
24-23. The score was deadlocked at 2i all after a long basket by Folk when a Joliet 
player fouled Abens of Aurora who made the free throw with only 20 seconds left 
to play. The first quarter found the teams tied with 4 points apiece. In the second 
quarter Joliet opened up and made the score 13-8 at the half in their favor. Joliet 
was still leading 21-15 at the start of the last frame. Emdin, playing his second 
game for the lightweights, was high point man of the game, having eight points. 

The Blue and Gold minors lost to the Streator All-Staters, 22-19 after a thrill- 
ing rally in the closing minutes of play. In the last quarter the brilliant guarding of 
Hunter and Schmidt kept the All-Staters scoreless while their teammates were 
cutting the lead down to 3 points. The first string lights were kept on the bench 
throuout the game. 


Strengthened by Emdin, the ponies lost a hard game to the unbeaten Rockford 

lights 24-23. At the end of the first quarter the Rabs were leading 7-6; at the end 

of the half they were on the wrong end of a 15-11 score. The third quarter found

Snappy colors met the eyes of the J.T.H.S. students going to the pep meeting held 
to stir up enthusiasm for the sectional tournament. Led by the cheer leaders, the 
students gave yell after yell for Coach Becker and the tournament squad. As they 
ran in, dressed in freshly cleaned suits, the whole assembly rose to its feet and sang 
"Joliet Loyalty'' as a miniature airplane swung through the air with "Spirit of Joliet'' 
on one side and "Championship" on the other. 

Getting the "break" by having the bye, Joliet met the speedy West Aurora team 
in the semi-finals and bowed to them 20-16. West High made eight free throws to 
win the game as Joliet made but two. While Joliet was making 7 field goals, Aurora 
could make but six. 

The game was close throughout, Joliet leading only once in the game 12-11 in 
the third quarter. The last quarter opened with the score Aurora 15 and Joliet 14. 
Anderson of Aurora started things with a basket and a free throw; Emdin followed 
with a field goal. Anderson sank a free toss, and Hazelett dribbled down the floor 
to make the score 20-16. In the last two minutes Aurora stalled and won a hard 
fast game by 4 points. 

West Aurora proved its worth by defeating Waukegan 29-11 in the final game 
and won the sectional title. To win, Aurora nosed out the previously undefeated 
Sycamore team 29-21 in an overtime battle, eliminated Joliet 20-16 and trimmed 
Waukegan 29-11. 

In the state contest, West Aurora played through until the final game and lost 
to Canton 18-9 featured by the slow offense of both teams. 



The Blue and Gold won its first game in rather easy fashion, downing Blue 
Island 23 to 12. Jumping into the lead at the start, they were never headed, the 
score at half time being 16 to 9. They played a safe game in the last half, totaling 
7 points to 3 for their opponents. Emdin and Rentner with 4 baskets apiece, led 
the attack while Bush rung up 6 points. 

Swamping the Morris quintet 33 to 18, the fighting Ironmen earned the right 
to play in the semi-finals. After a slow first quarter that ended 4-4, Morris was 
helpless before the Blue and Gold offense. The half ended 16-6; and the points 
continued to pile up in the third quarter. Emdin and Bush led the attack, the former 
scoring 6 baskets. Rentner, Longley and Loose all scored during the game. 

Joliet chose to play a slow breaking offense and tight defense against Mazon, 
thus conserving all possible energy for the final game. The Blue pulled up with an 
8-5 lead at the end of the half and Mazon failed in her efforts to penetrate our 
defense. Longley 's work in offense and defense was outstanding. Joliet won 15 to 9. 

The greatest game in district tournament history featured the final combat 
between Calumet City and Joliet. Three thousand leather-lunged spectators turned 
the gymnasium into a bedlam of noise an hour before game time. Beautiful team- 
work, marvelous speed and uncanny shots swept the purple clad warriors from their 
feet in the opening half and before they could catch their breath the Blue and Gold 
led 11 to 0. Bush, Emdin, Rentner shot with unerring accuracy. Outspeeded and 
outsmarted, they trailed at half time, 16-6. 

That second half will not be easily forgotten. Stralko and Tomkulonis finally 
penetrated our defense. Emdin's accurate eye registered, while Loose and Longley 
came through with a goal apiece. Bush made a beautiful dribble-in shot, and it 
looked as though the game was safe. Loose went out on personals, Wheeler substi- 
tuting. With 70 seconds left Joliet led by 5 points. Two beautiful shots cut that 
lead to one point, and then the gun cracked! Joliet men were champions 28-27! 
Calumet City lost, but with honor and sportsmanship. 

All honor and credit to those fighting men who brought the district title to 
Joliet: Rentner, Bush, Emdin, Longley, Loose, Busch, Wheeler, Slack, Oldani, and 
Kelly. To Capt. Rentner we salute, for he was the inspiration that brought victory, 
in the greatest tournament game we played on our floor. 

(Heavyweight Football Continued from Page 75) 

Rockford backs and opened large holes for our own men. Rentner's defensive work 
was little short of marvelous as he threw the Rockford backs for more losses than 
the team gained. 

Joliet wound up the season on Thanksgiving Day journeying to DeKalb. The 
game proved easy for the Blue and Gold and Joliet won 33-0. The feature of the 
game was a 75-yard run by Emerson. The splendid interference was responsible for 
the victory. Busch and Bisching's work was very creditable.

TRACK— 1928 

Mr. Fargo 's call for track men brought out only seven letter men and a prospect 
for a poor season. 

The whole outlook for the season was changed on April 28 when Joliet defeated 
West Aurora 71% to 59% on the local track. Annexing seven first places and a 
number of seconds and thirds Joliet easily won from the Aurora tracksters. Rentner 
took first in the discus, shotput, and high jump; Lawson captured the mile and 
quarter-mile; Folk won the low hurdles; and the relay team consisting of Oldani, 
Pennuto, Slack and Maxwell won the seventh first place for Joliet. 

Coach Fargo sent seven picked men to the Bradley Interscholastic at Peoria 
the following week. By taking two seconds and two thirds Joliet placed ninth out 
of the sixty-two school that competed. Rentner took second in the discus throw and 
third in the shot put. The relay team won second place and Folk placed third in 
the 220-yard low hurdles 

Only three Joliet men qualified for the state interscholastic at the district meet 
held at Elgin May 12. Joliet took fourth out of the twenty-seven schools, annexing 
twenty -one points. Elgin won the meet with il l / 2 points. East Aurora was second 
and Wheaton third. The men who qualified for the state meet were Rentner who 
broke two district records winning in the discus throw with a 127-foot heave, and 
in the shotput with a throw of 48 feet one inch. Lawson who finished second in the

More interest than ever before in the history of school tennis was shown this 
year when during the all-school tourney there were sixty-two entrees in the singles 
and thirty entrees in the doubles tournament. The teams of Emdin-Nelson and 
Young-Munch were finalists in the doubles, and Young and Emdin were finalists in 
the singles. 

The regular High School teams this year were composed of Longley and Miller 
in the singles, and the combinations of Nelson-Emdin, and Barr-Austin in the doubles. 

The teams this year have shown excellent form and have yet to be beaten, having 
easily won all their matches so far. They have defeated the Joliet Junior College, 
Morris and Elgin; Chicago Heights was given a double trimming, and Lockport is 
numbered among the scalps. 

The tennis team is also entered in two major tournaments; the Inter-scholastic, 
at Elgin on May 18-19, and the "Big Seven" at Home on June 2. Last year Joliet 
won the Conference and stands an excellent chance of repeating. 

On May 12 the tennis team swamped the DeKalb team in a conference match 5-0. 

The tennis doubles team, Emdin-Nelson, went to finals at Champaign and won 
medals for second place. 



"Red" Witte, East Aurora's outstanding star was selected captain of the Big 
Seven all-conference team by the coaches of the circuit. He and his team mate 
Moos were the only unanimous choices. 

Most of the votes for the end position were centered on Rentner of Joliet, and 
Erickson of Rockford. The fact that "Pug" played two positions probably kept 
him from getting all the votes. Rentner played the Rockford and DeKalb games 
with a broken hand but nevertheless showed up well especially against the Rabs. 

"Dinny" Kelly received the largest share of votes for tackle along with Blanck 
of Elgin. Don Munch, who played quarter-back thruout the season was honored 
with the right half back berth. 

The second all-conference team also contained three Joliet men. Loose on the 
end position, Wekerlin at center and Emerson at quarter, giving six Joliet men on the 
two teams, 2 more than the nearest competitors who were Rockford and Freeport, 
with 4 men apiece. 

Art Crosby of Rockford was picked by all the lightweight coaches as was Cooper 
of Elgin, another hard hitting back. McCachran of Rockford was the outstanding 
lineman of the pony loop in the opinion of the lightweight mentors. Booker was the 
only Joliet man who received a position on either team. He was picked as a half on 
the second all-conference team. ■ 

(Heavyweight Basketball Continued from Page 81) 

10-5 at half time, Sullivan and Brewer leading the attack. In the last few minutes 
Longley made two long shots tying the score. Lloyd Busch scored a basket and a 
free throw in the overtime period after Freeport had made a basket. 

The Heavies bowed to Marseilles 15-10 in a long drawnout contest to help 
Coach Becker determine a tournament squad. Maxwell, Emdin, Ricker and Menozzi 
of the lightweight squad were given a tryout. 


Our Beckermen trounced Ottawa in easy fashion 36-12. The game was never 
in doubt from the start as the score read 17-4 at the half for Joliet. Coach Becker 
used his entire squad again and all showed up well. 


Revenge was ours when Gardner lost 14-7 in a brilliant defensive game. The 
score at half time was 6-4 and at the end of the third quarter 10-4. Joliet used a 
slow-breaking offensive thruout the game.

The purpose of the Girls' Athletic Association is to foster and further interest in 
athletics, promote good sportsmanship, and develop healthy bodies. This is done 
through supervised training in sports giving every girl an opportunity to make a 
class team in hockey, basketball, baseball, tennis, field and track. At the end of 
each season comes an interclass tournament. The spring sports were handled a little 
differently this year than last. Formerly students signed up for all or any one of 
them and spent a certain number of hours every week, usually taken from the 
seventh and eighth periods, practicing them. This year, however, the gymnasium 
classes were divided into squads, and each spuad practiced each of the events in 
rotation. A field and track meet was held between the girls making highest scores. 

The social side of the G.A.A. is also well developed. A banquet for the girls 
who made hockey or basketball teams was held in April and a freshman welcoming 
party was held earlier in the year. The Annual Mother's and Daughter's tea was 
held in Maj'. Because of the number of dances held in the spring, a date for the 
annual G.A.A. dance was not obtainable. 

The G.A.A. camp held at Bowen Country Club near Waukegan each summer 
furnishes a great deal of pleasure to the girls who are able to go. Swimming, tennis, 
basketball, baseball, dancing, archery, and golf are all taught, and teams are 
chosen from each school to compete in them. Tournaments are held and the school 
having the greatest number of points wins a banner. Besides a banner for best 
school, the best individual camper is given an arm band. 

(Lightweight Basketball Continued from Page 84) 
Rockford creeping up until they were only one point behind, 21-20. The last frame 
found Joilet tired and their opponents made four points to their two. Emdin made 
two free throws and in the last minute of play missed a shot that rolled around the 
rim twice before falling out. Emdin scored 14 of his team's 23 points. 

The Blue and Gold lights suffered their fourth conference defeat at the hands of 
Freeport, 30-22. In the first half there was no fight shown by the locals and in the 
last quarter when they showed some stuff it was too late.

The girls' basketball season started about two weeks after the hockey season 
was over. Practice was held in the boys' gymnasium on Tuesdays and Fridays for 
the Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors and on Mondays and Wednesdays for the 
Freshmen who had to practice alone because of their number. 

First place in the tournament which was held in the gym March 1-2 was won 
by the Seniors who defeated the Sophomores 13-11 in the first game. The Juniors 
won the right to play in the finals by winning from the Freshmen 13-12. The score 
of the Junior-Senior game was 15-8 in favor of the Seniors. In the consolation game

For the first time in three years the hockey girls were able to play some of their 
games. They have had to be called off on account of bad weather th? other years. 
Two nights a week the girls piled into a truck after school and went out to Highland 
Park where they practiced. 

The games were played at the Richards Street Field. The Juniors won from 
the Seniors, and the Freshmen defeated the Sophomores. Rain interrupted the final

The Art Club is a practically new organization in Joliet High, but in its short 
existence it has become known everywhere. Cooperation and backing of all school 
enterprises is their aim. 

Meetings are held in the Art Club room once a week and there plans are made 
for their projects. This year, one of their biggest undertakings was that of illustrat- 
ing the year book. Other worth while contributions to the school have been made 
by assisting to put over organization campaigns by snappy posters. 

The Art Club belongs to the Chicago Art Gallaries Association and in so be- 
longing have the privilege of having a new picture brought here for one month, at 
the end of which time it is sent back and a new one obtained. The object in this is 
to get the students interested in better types of art. This Art Club has the honor 
of being the only high school art club belonging to the organization. 

Mrs. Richardson is the leader of the group, and it is to her that the credit is 
due for the splendid results that she has profected. She has promoted an appreci- 
ation of art and a love for the beautiful things among the students.

The Blue and Gold Club is made up of all lettermen in school. Meetings are 
held every Tuesday the seventh and eighth periods, and at that time all the neces- 
sary business is discussed. 

As usual, the Blue and Gold Club fellows took care of the visiting teams during 
the district and sectional tournaments. Each fellow was assigned to a visiting team. 
While the team was participating in the tournament, he acted as waterboy, trainer 
and in various other capacities. 

"Our Gang'' was the name of the stunt the Blue and Gold Club put on in the 
J Circus, members of the club representing the various characters of the "Our Gang 

For the first time the basketball letters were presented by the president of the 
Blue and Gold Club to those who were eligible to receive them. 

New members were voted into the club as the semester closed.

Although not very large, the Camera club is responsible for one of the greatest 
assets of the Year Book, the pictures. "Pictures tell the Story," and because of this 
fact the Cameraites have gone through this year "snapping'' so that this book might 
be a worth while one. But with the work has also come the play. Among the good 
times were a Hallowe'en party, a practical night, and an April Fool's party at Mr. 
Price's home. We also went on a hike this spring to Pilcher Park for the purpose of 
getting year book pictures and also having a good time. The purpose was accomplished. 

At our regular meetings on Thursday every two weeks, we have interesting dis- 
cussions on photography, the art of developing, and how unique results may be 

On the whole this year has been a very satisfactory one from the standpoint of 
service rendered and enjoyment received.

The German club of the J.T.H.S. has now been in existence three years. It 
offers its members an opportunity to hear and speak the language, and to learn about 
the history and customs of the German people. Any student of German is eligible 
for membership. This year meetings have occurred bi-weekly. At Hallowe'en the 
president and the vice president entertained the club at the latter 's home. Another 
special meeting was the Christmas Party, for which Charles Ladd furnished more 
than sufficient refreshments. The club has certainly increased the liking of its 
members for the German language and German interests.

The Drafting Club was organized and held its first meeting the first Thursday 
in February, 1928. The club consists of sixty-five members representing architecural, 
mechanical, and engineering drafting students. The club is sponsored by Mr. Renner 
of the Industrial Drafting Department and Mr. Rogers who is in charge of Engin- 
eering Drawing. (The club meets the first Thursday of each month in room 371.) 

The purpose of the club is to bring together students who are pursuing the 
three drafting courses under one large representative body. With such an organiza- 
tion, drafting students have the advantage of meeting men of industry who are 
called upon to lecture on various industrial subjects as committeemen see fit. 
The committee members are in charge of all programs.

A sophomore section of the Gilpin English Club, which met the third and fourth 
periods, applying new significance to the initials "S.O.S." took the name ''Study or 
Sorrow." Twenty-six members constituted this group, and all cooperated for the 
benefit of "G. E. C." 

In connection with the daily English lessons, each member submitted a term 
paper in the form of an artistic newspaper scrapbook, compiled of clippings collected 
during the semester. These were the result of many weeks of strenuous study and 
instruction. For "Mother's Day" fitting poems by the club members were required, 
and these showed care of construction and tenderness of feeling; many were mounted 
in attractive folders. A class honor roll was posted in the club room, on which ap- 
peared the names of all whose grades were passing; a high place on this honor roll 
was a much coveted prize for earnest scholarship. 



This club is made up of AI English students. This club, like the other Gilpin 
English Clubs, keeps its work up to date in the English line and also in the helping 
line. The slogan of this club may explain this more clearly: the "W" stands for we; 
the "H" stands for help; and the "0" stands for others, thus we have the slogan 
"We Help Others." 

The W.H.O. Club has the most fun on Book days. Book day is held every time 
the whole class gets a day ahead in their lessons. On these days the students have 
their choice of any book in the cases. The lamps and the fireplace are lighted to 
make the room look and fell like home. 

On Friday of each week the meetings are held with Everett Nelsen as president, 
Leon Gardner as vice president, Dorothy Johnson as secretary, Mildred Kristal as 
treasurer, Genevieve Headke as chairman of program, and Chester Attaway and Anna 
Batis representing the flower committee. 

The W.H.O. Club although one of the smallest Gilpin English Clubs, yet hopes 
to accomplish something great before the semester is over that its name will go down 
in club history.

The eleventh and twelfth period class, a class of A Sophomores, organized 
under the supervision of Miss Gilpin as the W.O.W. Club, the name meaning 
"Workers of the World." 

The ideals upheld by the Gilpin English Club were adopted by the new club, 
and the club pin was ordered. The class was given lessons in citizenship as well as 
in Miller and Johnson. Thrift through the saving of "chewing gum" nickels was 
practiced, and club furnishings and charitable enterprises were the pleasing result. 

In April the club took part in a "J" circus held in the boys' gym. They were 
part of a group which sponsored the Near East Valentine Box. 

On Fridays a business meeting and program was held. Short talks on current 
topics selected from the Literary Digest, a Gilpin hobby, were given. At times 
however the plan was varied and the students were allowed to have book day. 
From the cases that line the wall any book could be selected and read in leisure. 

All this we owe to Miss Gilpin who has saved and worker that we might enjoy 
the benefits of a club. We extend to her our deepest thanks. 


"The Gilpin Go Getters" are a branch of the Gilpin English Club. The Officers 
of our club are as follows: President, Edith Spiess; Secretary, William Deets; Treas- 
urer, Robert Pilcher; Program Chairman, Darline Spier; and Flower Committee, 
Gladys McAllister, Robert Cohenour, Wilma Otis. 

Every Friday that Miss Gilpin sees fit we have a business meeting and a pro- 
gram or else "Book Day." In order to have either of these we must first have our 
work finished to date. In our meetings we carry on business that concerns our par- 
ticular group as well as the Gilpin English Club as a whole. Our programs consist 
of topics taken from the "Literary Digest" of the preceding Saturday. 

"The Gilpin Go Getters" are always endeavoring to work promptly, earnestly, 
and honesty, to be courteous to companions, respectful to authority and a helpful 
citizen in school and community.

Ah! Here we are again! Remember us? We knew you would! Can you 
remember our tag day, our valentine day for the Near East Relief? Our part in the 
J Hi Circus? We knew you would! 

We are the N.R.G. section of the G.E.C. Our officers are: Thomas Pacey, 
president; Joseph Zelko, vice president; Theodore Henvick, secretary; Elmer Henry, 
treasurer; and Hazel Hedges, the chairman of program. 

We have been very active in the past year with the various occupations that 
we now regard as our duties; and we have done our very best to develop a whole- 
some interest for ourselves and others in good books, plays, music, movies, ideals. 
As a guide in our work we have the energetic Miss Gilpin — our guide. If ever we 
lagged, or wearied, or couldn't see the way on our nob, we were inspired and shown 
the correct way by our benefactor — Miss Gilpin! 

We do our daily work as assigned by the department; but unlike other classes 
we find a free day in each week which we readily utilize for a business meeting which 
trains in parliamentary usage. It is followed by a program of "Literary Digest" 
topics given by the class. This not only keeps the class in close touch with world 
events, but renders a more important service — that of teaching the student how to 
speak without confusion, to express his ideas clearly, decisively, and to-the-point. 
For no man has received a true, modern education unless he can express his ideas 
clearly and to-the-point, with a maximum of power and a minimum of time. Along 
with these speeches, we make outlines which under the keen viligence and care of 
Miss Gilpin enable us to give the aims of our speeches.

The program for the year consisted of programs given by outside speakers, club 
members and sponsors leading the meetings. One of the objectives of the club this 
year was to visit other Hi-Y Clubs and in turn to have other clubs attend our 

The remainder of the Hi-Y pledge to the Y.M.C.A., which was sixty dollars, 
was paid. 

The state Older Boy's Conference at Rockford, Illinois, was attended by a 
representative group of the Hi-Y Club. Several members attending this conference 
spoke at Churches in Rockford. 

A "clean speech" campaign was conducted in the high school by the club. 
Posters were put in the halls, and signs were made on the blackboards. Discussions 
of this topic were carried on in club meetings. 

Eight Joliet delegates journeyed to Hinsdale, where they took part in the 
Thirteenth Annual District Older Boys' Conference.

The J Hi Stars is a wide awake organization composed of Junior and Senior 
girls, organized several years ago by Miss Denning who was then Dean of Girls. 
At the beginning of each school year the four officers and eight group leaders are 
chosen by the girls. The organization is then divided into twelve groups each of 
which chooses a faculty sponsor. Miss Mather, the present Dean of Girls, is 
advisor to the whole organization. 

The aims of this organization are to develop a finer social life among the girls 
of the school, to help the needy at Christmas time and to interest the members in 
bettering their community. A dinner dance given in the spring, is one of the out- 
standing social events of the school. In the fall, a girls' social hour was given. 
It is a well balanced organization and worth every Junior and Senior girl's support. 

The group leaders were: Kathryn Heath, Gail Yaggy, Helen Rice, Ethel Gumae- 
lius, Helen Austin, Gertrude Barber, Helen McGinnis, Francis Green, Ruth Gifford, 
Victoria Fenoglio, Beatrix DeFillipi, Mabel Snider and Marjory Blatt.

Le Cercle Francais of the High School is composed of the students taking AI, 
B1I or All French. The students who are members of the club are interested in 
studying the customs, dress, songs, and the different characteristics of the various 
parts of France; and the programs at the club meetings are so arranged that much 
information which could not possibly be obtained in the regular class periods is 
given. As the meetings are carried on in French a greater familiarity with spoken 
and conversational French is possible. 

The past year the French club has been on the alert socially. At two meetings 
parties were held. At Christmas time two French plays were given, and gifts were 
exchanged by the members. The plays were "Le Petit Chaperon Rouge" and "La 

On Valentine's day another party was held where valentines with French verses 
were exchanged by the members present. 

At all of the meetings French folk songs are sung, some of the favorites being 
"Cadet Rouselle," "Madelon," and "La Mere Michel."

The Senior Shorthand Friendship Club was organized to promote a feeling of 
fellowship and friendship among the senior students enrolled in the commercial 
courses of our high school. Its aim is to make better business women through 
social, mental, and physical development. 

Meetings have been held every Wednesday afternoon in the music room, when 
a business meeting and an educational program have been given, followed by a 
social half hour. 

Under the financial plan of the club, groups of ten, each under the supervision 
of a student leader, made a sum of money which was turned into the club treasury 
toward the trip which was taken by bus to Chicago, where the club visited the 
Woman's World's Fair, and took a tour through Marshall Field's Store. Ways and 
means of making money for the club funds were: a trip through the American 
Institute Laundry, Bridge lessons, a penny social and a bakery sale.

The Social Science club which was started in 1926 and died in its infancy was 
revived this year by students who were interested in the study of social problems 
outside the classroom. 

We held our meetings at the different churches of the city where dinner was 
served first and the remaining time was spent in listening to the speaker. 

Dr. Martin, the psychiatrist at the prison, was the speaker at the first meeting, 
which was held at the First Christian church. His topic was "The New Attitude 
Toward Crime." At the next meeting, held at the Central Presbyterian church, the 
speakers were candidates for city, county and state election. Hjalmar Rehn, candid- 
ate for State's Attorney, Francis Loughran, Democratic candidate for State Repre- 
sentative, James Bell, representing Elmer Bielfeldt, candidate for State's Attorney; 
John Walker, candidate for State Representative; Paul O'Hern, candidate for State 
Representative and Thomas Sprague, candidate for County Auditor, all spoke on the 
same subject "Why I am a Candidate." Judge Austin, county judge who has been 
active in promoting the fight against juvenile delinquency in Joliet, addressed us at 
one of our meetings on the subject of "The Value of the Study of Social Science." 
At one of the last meetings Mrs. C. N. Wilkey, Executive Secretary of the Will 
County chapter of the Red Cross spoke on "Flood Relief." Mrs. Wilkey was active 
in the relief work at East Peoria after the flood there in 1927. 

The only eligibility rule which was required in order to become a member of 
the club was that a person either should be in the social economics classes or should 
have taken the subject previously. There were about 125 members made up from 
Juniors, Seniors and Junior College students. There were no dues collected with the 
exception of the fact that everyone paid for the dinner at the meetings. 

Co-operation was one of the biggest aims of the club. For instance, one of our 
meetings was a joint meeting with the night school class in sociology. 

We hope that the social science club will be a lasting thing and not die out as it 
did before, because there are many things that it may do well in co-operation with 
other organizations in the community that are interested in social improvement. 

The last meeting of the club was held in the form of a picnic at West Park 
where the members wished luck to their successors and to the future of the social 
science club. 



The Student Council is an organization formed for the benefit of the students. 
It purposes to be a means of bringing the faculty and students closer together to boost 
student activities and to act in cooperation with the ideas of the students for the 
betterment of the school. 

This body is composed of a representative from each home room throughout the 
school. The choice is made by popular vote. This organization is sponsored by Mr. 
H. V. Givens of the biology department and by Mr. H. J. Atkinson of the mathe- 
matics department. 

Among the more important things that the council does each year is to sponsor 
the selling of Christmas seals and the distribution of baskets. It also sponsors an 
annual cleanup day.

The Terpsichorean Club is an organization of girls who are aiming to find 
pleasurable recreation in rhythmic movement, to more adequately express our emo- 
tions, to develop finer personalities and an appreciation and love of the beautiful. 

The annual spring program given by the club this year consisted of "The Stolen 
Princess," a ballet in three acts written by Hazel Conlon, president of the club last 
year; "The Enchanted Urn," a dance drama; clog dances, and folk dances of the 
nations. Girls in the folk dances were taken from the gymnasium classes and the 
training classes. (Continued on Page 128)

After winning the National Band Contest held at Council Bluffs, Iowa, in May, 
1927, the band returned home but not to rest. This victory, which was the second 
consecutive National Championship that the band had won was celebrated, and 
then the band settled down to hard work again. All during the summer vacation 
months the graduating grade school musicians were trained so that they might be 
able to fill the places of the high school graduates. 

The band gave its usual pep to the football and basketball seasons by attending 
and playing at all of the home games as well as some of those out of town. During 
the regular school year the band went to Chicago to welcome Lois Delander who had 
become "Miss America." As usual the band played for all the pep meetings as well 
as many of the assemblies. 

With the impetus gained by the extra summer months of rehearsal the band was 
able to present its fifteenth anniversary concert on the early date of March 30. 
An interesting feature of this concert was the way it attracted the attention of noted 
musicians everywhere, many of whom attended the concert. 

After two preliminary home contests, the band sent ten picked soloists to the 
sectional contest held at Aurora, April 13, 1928. These ten soloists represented eight 
different instruments, and Joliet won a sweeping victory of eight first and two seconds. 
R. Tremelling, clarinet; G. Henderson, cornet; R. Harris, horn; E. Portor, saxa- 
phone; H. Emiley, bass; L. Bradley, oboe; G. Switzer, trombone; E. Mitchell, bari- 
tone, won firsts and R. Mau, saxaphone; R. Englehart, horn, won seconds. As a 
result of this contest ths same ten soloists went to the state contest where Tremelling, 
Porter, Switzer, and Mitchell won firsts; Bradley, Englehart, and Henderson won 
seconds; and Harris won third. 

One of the greatest honors Joliet has had was on May 24, 25, 26 when the third 
National Band Contest was held here. Joliet was host to over two thousand band 
boys and girls representing about twenty states. 

John Philip Sousa, the "March King", Edwin Franko Goldman, leader of the 
famous Goldman's Band of New York City, and Captain Charles O'Neill, director 
of music to the Royal twenty-second Regiment, Quebec, Canada, were the three 
judges. Joliet entered ten soloists in the national solo contest and won eight places: 
Raymond Tremelling, clarinet; Glen Henderson, cornet; Leonard Bradley, oboe; 
Robert Harris, French horn, all took first place. Harold Emiley, bass; Edwin Porter, 
saxaphone; and George Switzer, trombone took second places. Edwin Mitchell, 
baritone, took third place. 

The band won the sight reading contest. After the grand parade it was announc- 
ed that the Joilet Band was the best maching band; and Saturday night it was an- 
nounced that Joliet had again won the national championship, making three con- 
secutive victories and giving Joliet permanent possession of the trophy.

With a larger number in the Orchestra than it has ever had before in the history 
of J.T.H.S. we have another prosperous year. 

One of the biggest disappointments was the fact that no state orchestra contest 
was held in Illinois this year, and as the fact was announced after we had even 
worked on the contest numbers unchallenged, we still remain the State champions 

Near the beginning of the year we played at one of the sessions of the Teachers' 
Institute held in the auditorium. We played at the Chamber of Commerce a number 
of times, for the Rotary Club and the Kiwanis, and furnished the music for the 
Woman's Club and the Junior College play. 

Two of the members of the orchestra, Ruth Martin of Junior College who plays 
viola, and Irene Mahaffey, '28, who plays bass, were chosen to represent J.T.H.S. at 
the National High School Orchestra which met in Chicago at the Stevens Hotel from 
April 14 to 18. 

There are 65 members in the Orchestra this year. The bass section has grown 
from two to five. An oboe and a bassoon have been added to the woodwind section. 
An organ has also been added and the horn section has been increased. 

The personnel of the Orchestra is as follows: First Violins: Robert Snider, 
Claude Wilson, Joseph Mattei, Joseph Skorupa, Raymond Gundalach, Marion Brere- 
ton, Leon Kolbert, Rose Herzog, Gladys Floyd, Everett Nelson, Constantine Dimas; 
Second Violins: Marion Chaffee, Elizabeth Kerr, Robert Mau, Charles Brantileno, 
Stanford Reid, Richard Freeze, Eugene Pennutto, Joe Baczuk, Richard Gerkens- 
meyer, Eileen Fetter; Violas: Ruth Martin, Robert Folk, James Weigle, Paul 
Switkis, Ed Zeleznik, Catherine Grant, Howard Spiess; Trombones: Byron Snider, 
Charles Dackendorf; Horns: Robert Harris, Mary Ross, Margaret Noell and Bydell 
Schwart; Oboes: Leonard Bradley, Amber Hopkins; Cellos: Helen Rice, Josephine 
Keltie, Helen Keltie, Margaret Wiswell, Mary Maloney, Barbara Broughton, Con- 
stance Maxwell; Basses: Irene Mahaffey, Floyd Schauland, Jaul Jones and John Rix; 
Cornets: Elsie Reitz, Delia Hoyt, Louis Spires; Clarinets: Hiram Fuller, Carrie 
Spencer; Flute: Nina Norris, Eleanor Bates; Piano: Helen Doxsie; Organ: Russel 
Van Benthuysen; Saxaphone: Agnes Masau; Drums: David Stephen, Rohland Pohl, 
William Sheridan. 



The choral work of the high school is conducted in two Classes, namely the 
junior and senior choruses. The junior chorus is responsible for a concert at Easter 
time and the music for Commencement night. The senior chorus in responsible 
mainly for a concert at Christmas and the annual operatic productions. 

From the senior chorus and junior chorus is picked a boys' chorus of fifty voices, 
a treble choir of 16 voices and a bass choir of twelve boys. The above picture repre- 
sents the combined choral oganizations of two hundred voices. 

TERPS1CHOREAN CLUB (Continued frcm Page 119) 

At the end of each year new members are chosen from the training classes to 
take the places of those who are not returning next year. 

During the year the girls have given programs at: The Baptist Church. Steel 
Works Club, Womans' Club, Business and Professional Woman's Club, Chamber of 
Commerce, and the high school classes.

May we have your attention for a moment please and present the Public Speak- 
ing club and its activities? One of the biggest things that was sponsored this year 
was the extemporeanous speech contest supervised by Miss Elizabeth Barns and 
Miss Lena M. Dickinson in which seventy-six Juniors and Seniors were enrolled. 
They were given an unprepared subject and one hour and five minutes to organize it. 
The contestants were then called and judged by Miss Clow, Miss Jones and Mr. 
Marshall. Six finalists were chosen out of the seventy-six. Lillie Anderson received 
the first prize, a gold medal, and Robert Folk, second prize, a silver medal. Honor- 
able mention went to George Churchill, Rosella Mattei and Anton Mutz. The six 
finalists were judged by Miss Hyde, Mr. Blampin, and Mr. Turman. 

The aim of the club is to act as a booster to all organizational activities, such 
as the Junior College Play, Senior Play the J High Journal, Athletics and the Band. 

One triumph during the year was the winning of first prize at the J Circus. 
The students were left to their own initiative, Miss "Dicky" wishing to see what we 
could do without her help. In keeping with the circus, we had a side show with a 
Wild Woman, whooping of singing bear, and laughing clown. This act won the 
five pound box of candy. 

Another triumph was the clean-up assembly in which order, in a prize fight, 
defeated dust and disorder. 

Although our social good times this year have been few, when one is busy one 
is happy and because of this our club has had a joyful and successful year.

So calm so peaceful is the night, 
So still with tinge of sombreness. 

No human form, nor beast in sight, 
But I alone in darkness. 

Above, howe'er, I find a friend. 

And then another and another. 

A countless throng from end to end, 
Until the sky they smother. 

Orion high up in the east, 

Xo friend more welcome than is he. 
On Sirius my eyes then feast, 

The brightest star a man can see. 

The Sisters Seven, Aldebaran, 
Above me in the sky so high. 

The faithful Bears who with the Dragon 
Around the frigid pole do vie. 

The Swan, the Eagle, and Altair 
Above the west horizon peep, 

And, south, red Mars so debonair, 
A tryst with me ne'er fails to keep. 

And while I visit with these friends, 
The darkness fades like clouds away. 

The cheer, the faith, the strength they 
Dispel the lonely night's array. 

Softly through the vaulted arches 
On the quiet air their floats. 
Gently like the distant thunder, 
Mellow, somber organ notes. 

Down the nave like mighty billows 
Roll the rumbling waves of sound — 
Swelling, welling, never dwelling — 
Music of the gods unbound. 

Xow there come clear voices singing 
In a soft and liquid tone, 
To be answered from the altar 
In a chanting monotone. 

Leighton Wellman. 


Here I idle in the twilight, 

Laxing in a cozy chair, 
List'ning to the coyote calling 

Through the distant chilly air. 

Dumb the forest; dumb the valley; 

Dumb the mountain stream below— 
Xbthing but the coyote calling. 

Calling hauntingly and low. 

Comes the echo from the mountain, 
Causing me to turn my head, 

Thinking there another coyote 
Answering to shield its dread. 

Though the call be wierd and lonely, 

Echoing from far or near, 
Sitting in the ev'ning twilight, 

I, the coyote, love to hear.

Oh, I'd read and I'd dreamed of the sailors' seven seas. 

Of the stately old galleons of Spain's far famed grandees. 

So I chartered a clipper ship, strong and as light 

As a falcon unhooded and true in her flight. 

Then we sailed from the port on a saint-forbidden day. 

But the lure was upon me and I had to get away ! 

To the South first we steered, while free wind filled the sails 
And the sun played like gold on our highly polished rails. 
Soon we touched ancient China and we laughed in her face, 
(Fore I'd read of the trick'ry of the heathen Chinee race). 
Then we lolled and we lingered in the ports of Mandalay 
Where the lure came upon us and we couldn't get away! 

It was there that I met her (may a curse be on her soul! ) 
The rich hue of her skin was like ancient burnished gold. 
Her eyes were as deep as a shadowed sacred well; 
Her voice was as liquid as a mellow temple bell. 
And I felt, ah!, I knew, that 'twas death for us to stay, 
But her spell was upon us and we couldn't get away! 

The sea lay like oil as it lapped around the prow 

As smooth and as shining as Zalaka's placid brow, 

Her wine dulled our senses, and her music held us fast 

And we worshipped at her altar while the dead sails draped the mast. 

Then a breeze from the Xorth brought a dash of freshened spray, 

And the sea called and beckoned till we had to get away ! 

We drifted on the night tide, as silent as a ghost. 

The morning found us loosened from the humid lazy coast. 

Toward the North we were headed and we swiftly left behind 

The shores where we knew in the dusk Zalaka pined, 

By the phosphorescent waters where the "flying fishes play" 

But the sea had come upon us and we had to get away ! 

We sailed and we sailed and we saw fantastic sights. 
Till at last we reached the land of Aurora's colored lights, 
There the ice rose in crags, and it pierced the turquoise sky, 
Bright it flashed and reflected like a cold blue cyclop's eye. 
It cracked against the shoreline and it ground the frozen bay. 
Dire danger was upon us, and we had to get away! 


Through the cold emerald waters, light we cut the strident waves. 
'Round our salt covered decking, wild, the shrieking water raves. 
High the foam dashes up, stretching diamond spattered crests, 
Priceless jewels that adorn some cold Russian Princess' breast. 
How far we'd have ventured on the seas I cannot say, 
But a new lure came on us and we had to get away! 

And it's homeward we're bound to the peaceful fireside; 
We'd traversed the seven seas — proved that poets had not lied 
When they wrote of the East, of the lure of old Cathay, 
Of the wine and the dancing girls of mystic Mandalay, 
Of the cold, frosty North — but we thanked the lucky day 
When the sea called and beckoned and we had to g:t away. 

Katherine Dunham. 


O stars, that shine from heaven's velvet height, 

And try to cheer the distant world below, 

What are your thoughts, as gazing on us so, 

You see us all unconscious of the light? 

Do you feel moved with pity, in your might 

And grandeur, when you see that petty woe 

Can blind our eyes to life's sweet, happy flow? 

Do you see just how futile is the fight 

We wage, in this short life, against what can 

And always will make us as powerless 

As poverty, and war, and wasted love, 

In your broad visage, all that lowly man, 

Hemmed in by unperceiving narrowness, 

Regards, and fails to see the blue above? 

Erma L. Schwab. 



The Joliet Junior College Basketball mentor was met with gloomy prospects 
as the 1927-28 season opened. A shortage of eligible men presented a dismaying 
aspect to the coach. Of the ten men that started the season, only four remained at 
the finish. The personnel of the team was constantly changing and with this change 
the coach remained pretty well in the dark as to just who he could depend on to be 
present at game time. Yet Joliet had "a hard fighting and fast breaking team" as 
the North Park coach stated, and the fact that we scored an average of 26 points a 
game shows the kind of a team that we had. 

On January 5, the J.J.C. team travelled to Crane where it lost a hard battle to 
the 1927 conference champions when a switch from a five man, to a man-for-man 
defense in the closing moments of play left a hole in Joliet defense through which 
the faster Crane boys drifted at will. The final score was Crane 37, Joliet 27. 

On the 13 th of January the giant Chicago Normal team came here and won 
from a wildly passing Joliet team 34-18. Crombie and Young with eleven points 
between them led the scoring. 

After a lay off of two weeks the Joliet team travelled to Lisle College where, 
after losing much of their stored up energy in trying to find the place, they lost a 
fast game to the conference leaders 28-20. Crombie with eleven points led the 
scoring. This was the final game for Gallagher, due to the five semester ruling. 

Morton came to Joliet and won a record-breaking 50-40 point battle. Ruegnitz 


and Saper scored regularly for Morton while Crombie with 26 points starred for 
Toliet. Schneiter and Oakes joined the team before this game. 

Then came February 3 and with it our first conference victory. The Purple 
and White easily defeated North Park 28-13. Crombie scoring 13 points and 
Schneiter with his close guarding starred for Joliet. 

Crane came to Joliet for our second game with them and again won a last half 
victory when the team split wide open after a closely fought first half. Bennie Oakes 
starred for Joliet. 

On February IS, we travelled to Normal where we lost a heart-breaking game 
to them by a score of 26-24. The fact that Crombie was unable to play and the 
fact that Schneiter and Oakes were ejected from the game with four personal fouls 
explains the loss. 

Lisle came to Joliet the following week and again the JJ.C. team was defeated. 
This time to the tune of 35-22. Ryan and Meyer, two of the most faithful men on 
the squad, crept into the limelight and kept Lisle in the dark as to just who was 
slipping through their defense. 

The Purple and White moved to Morton where another of those high-scoring 
contests was played. Although Ryan and Crombie seemed to have found their eyes 
for the basket, we lost 40-31. 

In the last game of the season North Park obtained revenge for its former de- 
feat and won 36-27 from Joliet after a hard fought battle in which Crombie scored 
17 points. 


Cn April 6 with plenty of excellent material available for all positions, Coach 
R. L. Rogers sounded the practice call. About twenty men responded, suits were 
issued, and the coach and his men set to work to produce a winning team. Every 
evening for two weeks the men were schooled in the art of fielding, batting, and base 
running, as the team was rounded into shape for competition in the Northern Illinois 
Junior College Conference of baseball. Just before the season opened Smyder was 
elected captain and Douglas, who had received some valuable experience at Illinois, 
was designated pitcher. 

In the first game at Crane on April 21 the team received a setback at the hands 
of the more seasoned Chicagoans to the tune of 24 to 6. Several of the mainstays 
were not present. 

On April 25 the team travelled to Lisle and beat them in a hard-fought contest 
3 to 2. Douglas pitched an excellent game and had good support. Berst brought 
in the first two runs with a double to center while the game was won by Oakes' triple 
followed by a safe bunt by Meyer. 

North Park came to Joliet on May 5 only to be vanquished 1 to 0. Douglas 
allowed only one hit. The visitors had a good team, but two hits and a number of 
errors were enough to win. Captin Smyder got to the first sack on an error, ad- 
vanced to third on a hit by Liess, and came home on a wild pitch.

Inclement weather prevented our autumn hike schedule, and our hockey team; 
we practiced for basketball, but there were not enough aspirants for a suitable team 
to cope with the "all-stars" of the high school. But our winter was by no means dull. 
We encouraged and engaged in outside winter sports, and sponsored several chummy 
teas. Mrs. Kirby and her Terpsichoreans were always ready with novelty dances 
for entertainment, and Loretta Bourrie acted as our dance orchestra. 

The spring seems to be the busiest season for the W.A.A., for with the spring 
we sponsor a mammoth tennis tournament. A steel tennis racket was the prize in 
store for the winner. With tennis, we are also promoting track and baseball. Some 
of our last years' high-lights have gone on, but we have great hopes for our fresh- 
men, and there are one or two old stars among the sophomores. 

The "why" of the W.A.A. is very evident. Aside from the above, the girls have 
the satisfaction of knowing that their efforts will be materially rewarded. Since we 
are members of a national association, we are privileged to award emblems for the 
individual sports, and national emblems for a certain number of points earned in the 
participation of sports. These emblems were awarded at the annual Mothers' and 
Daughters' Tea, 'during the latter part of May. 

It is easy to qualify for the W.A.A. Join next year and enjoy its pleasures, 
social and athletic, and earn a purple and white J.C. 

Several tennis enthusiasts, led by Erwin Godfrey, persuaded Mr. Kirby to ar- 
range a junior college conference tennis schedule. The call for players was responded 
to by nine men, Godfrey being the only letter man. 

The players were arranged an a basis of showing in practice matches in the 
following order: McKeown, Meyer, Godfrey, Schneiter, Menzon, Spangler, Robin- 
son, Dunda and Pearson. 

The following schedule was played: 

April 28 — Morton playing on our home courts defeated us 4-1. 
May 3 — Xorth Park was defeated there 3-2. 
May 7 — Lisle met and defeated us here 3-1. 
May 12 — Chicago Normal defaulted to us. 

May 15 — Crane (matches not played on account of rain, another date set.) 

May 19 — Northern Illinois Junior College Conference tennis tournament 

to have been decided at the Oak Park tennis club, at River Forest, 111. 

J. J.C. BASEBALL TEAM (Continued from Page 148) 
The locals were trimmed at Chicago Normal on May 9. The team did not get 

started until the last two innings. Errors proved to be the downfall and the team 

lost 9 to 3. 

Morton was scheduled to play here on May 18 and Concordia here on the 26th. 

Joliet was especially determined to beat the latter team because Concordia defeated 

Crane 19 to 3.

The Junior College presented their annual play, "Seventeen," on November 23, 
in the new auditorium, under the direction of Miss Lena M. Dickinson. 

Silly Bill fell in love with Lola, the Baby-Talk Lady. To woo her in a manner 
worthy of himself he stole his father's evening clothes. When his wooings became 
a nuisance to the neighborhood, his mother stole the clothes back, and had them 
altered to fit Mr. Baxter, thereby keeping William at home in the evening. 

How William Sylvanus again got the dress suit, and how as he was wearing it at 
Lola's farewell party, the negro servant disclosed the fact that it was his father's are 
most interesting elements of the comedy. The play was exceptionally well received, 
and there were many invitations to repeat it.

'Way back in September, the first meeting of the cast was held. Yes — the cast 
that was to play the part of the first year French Club. The name chosen for the 
production that forthwith was to be enacted was "Le Point du Jour." Mile. Schwab 
was chosen leading lady, and proved to be the popular idol of every performance 
throughout the season. Her every ready wit was always to the rescue when that 
colleague of Messrs. Hoyle and Roberts detected anything unparliamentary — yes, 
Monsieur Spangler. The voting scenes were terrific ! Every known emotion was 
registered vividly, and with telling effect upon the audience, by bevies of brilliant 
actresses — Mile. Clark being among those favored most. 

There were two important performances during the season. One of these was 
at 416 South Richards Street, at which tea was served to every French speaking 
person present, a feature made possible through the pleasant hospitality of Madame 
Babcock, playwright and producer. The other performance of note was at the 
Chamber of Commerce, given in conjunction with the "Feytel VIII", second year 
Cercle Francais. Both performances received flattering ovations from the press. 

The season of "Le Point du Jour" is closed now, but it is with the inspiration 
afforded by one successful season that the cast looks forward to a more sparkling 
record next year, when it will continue as the second year Cercle Francais.

Feytel VIII started forth on its promenade of club life one fine September day. 
All around grew flowers of knowledge, some of which were familiar, others of which 
were strange and sometimes hard to identify. Soon the members came to the palace 
of Queen Anne, where they were much disturbed by the upsetting of "Un Yerre 
d'eau." Just as they were continuing their walk they stopped to sing a few carols 
for a traveler named College Club. 

After passing through the land of "Eugenie Grandet,'' a bleak, desolate country, 
ruled by an old miser, the members of Feytel VIII began to be troubled by "Le 
question d'argent"; but they soon forgot their worries in a delightful tea at the 
home of Mrs. Babcock, the sponsor. Meeting College Club again the members of 
Feytel VIII entertained him with a play "Marraine de Guerre." 

Soon afterward they arrived at the Chamber of Commerce where they prepared 
a banquet to which they invited the members of "Le Point du Jour. - ' 

The promenade was ended in the company of the annoying rogue ''Gil Bias" 
from whom the members of Feytel VIII finally parted, bidding him and one another 
"Au revoir."

The College Club has just completed its second year. The policy of having a 
monthly meeting for the advancement of our cultural opportunities was continued 
with marked success. Throughout the year the membership was representative of 
the entire college, and the programmes given and the events sponsored reflected the 
combined efforts of diversified student interests. 

Soon after the beginning of school the club sponsored a "get-acquainted" gath- 

At the October meeting officers for the first semester were elected. The balance 
of the programme consisted of musical selections and a speech contest. 

A scientific atmosphere was created for the November meeting by allowing 
some of the chemistry students and teachers to entertain the club in their laboratory. 
The College Club assisted the annual play by selling tickets under the direction of 
Vernon Barnes and Margaret Kertes. 

In December the Terpsichorean Club presented their delightful ballet, "Santa 
Claus' Work Shop." Besides there were a Christmas story, carols in German, Erench, 
and English, and a tree. 

Eor January musical selections by a college talent and a talk on music by Mr. 
E. B. Brockett were given. A unique talk by Mrs. Adele Fay Williams featured 
the programme. 

Dr. Smith favored us with a talk, "Junior Colleges in the United States," at the 
February meeting. The programme was concluded by group discussion of the ques- 
tion, with Dr. Smith leading. 

In March under the tuteledge of the new officers, three dramatic productions 
were put on. Each of the second year language classes put on a play. Miss Dickin- 
son directed an English play with a select cast. 

April brought a splendid entertainment, "Art in Painting and Song," presented 
by Mr. and Mrs. Frank U. Dudley of Chicago and the Dunes. This was the most 
pretentious meeting yet, and it was in harmony with the club policy of bringing one 
well-known speaker each year. 

A big crowd, a fine hall, and good music makes a swell dance. The dance at 
the Elk's club on April 27 was the biggest and most successful dance yet. The 
general arrangements committee with Neva Robbins, chairman, was selected by the 
College Club officers. 

May the College Club long continue to coordinate all social activities and bring 
together the entire student body.

"Beat Elgin" was the only thing heard in the ponies' camp on the eve of their 
second conference battle. The Elgin team, however, was superior to Joliet in 
offense and skirted the ends for frequent gains. The Watchmakers won 19-0, mak- 
ing it two defeats in 2 starts for the locals. Early in the second quarter, Cooper of 
Elgin went over for their first touchdown through guard. In the middle of the third 
frame the dusky Leach opened up and started things rolling. The second score 
came when Elgin quarterback went through tackle from the four-yard line. The 
third touchdown came when a Joliet pass was intercepted and turned into a score 
for Elgin. 


Showing a lack of drive and snap the local lights lost a 25-0 game to DeKalb 
on the latter's field. Long passes by the Barbs brought the ball down the field time 
after time for scores. 


Displaying some of the old time fight and punch of last year Coach Wykoff and 
his team ran over East Aurora 6-0. William Booker romped over the goal line late 
in the second quarter after circling the ends and plunging through the line for long 
gains. The locals scored seven first downs to five for Aurora. 


By trampling through the lightweight line and romping around the ends, the 
Oak Park minors emerged triumphant 19-0. The game was sought as an easy 
battle to whip the locals into shape for West Aurora, but a surprise was sprung, and 
one of the best driving teams in Chicago arrived. 

A bad wind was the deciding factor in Joliet's defeat by Aurora at the West 
High field 2-0. Joliet received the ball on the 2-yard line, and Oliver was forced to 
punt from behind his own goal line into the face of a high, tricky wind. The ball 
went straight up and landed behind Joliet's goal where a Joliet man downed it for a 
safety. This safety gave Aurora the game as both teams were about evenly matched. 
In the third quarter Aurora had the ball on the one-foot line, but in three attempts 
through center they were forced back to the six-yard line. 


The final game of the season again found the lights defeated, this time by Rock- 
ford 12-0. The Rabs crossed the goal line twice in the first quarter and were held 
throughout the rest of the game. The first tally came early in the initial period when 
Johnson of Rockford scooped up a punt which a Joliet played had touched and found 
a clear field before him. Seemingly dazed by the unexpectedness of the score the 
Joliet ponies were forced back by end runs until Crosly on an off tackle play scored 
the second touchdown. The rest of the game was evenly played except at one time 
the Blue and Gold ponies were forced back to their own 1-yard line where they held 
and received the ball on downs.

There was once an old King called Robin who lived in Huntsley castle near 
Bonrgingnon. Robin's son a Gaylord of Beverly, who we will call Prince for con- 
venience's sake, desired to be a Seaman and ran away to become a sailor. One night 
at sea a Storm Rose and all the sailors escaped to the Hull of the ship until the Gail 
Slackened and then Rompjed Zidek in glee. Some dove into the water for White 
Pearls and much to the surprise of all, Prince found a Large one and put it way for 
safe keeping. The first mate ordered the Seaman to Schwab Zidek and they answered 
with Helen Damman other expressions but soon Zidek was like Glass and the sailors 
were ready for grub. During the meal, which consisted of Hintz Beans, Kellogg's 
cornflakes, Rice, Hammond eggs, Tapio (ca.) pudding and Maxwell coffee, the men 
discussed Prince's luck and Pyled glory on him. 

While driving one of the sailors had received a Bump from which the Blood was 
now streaming his Ward becoming frightened Balled, "Can't Doxsee you?" The 
doctor wrapped the wound in a White bandage and helped him to his room as there 
were no Porters on this ship. 

Before very long Prince tired of life at sea and returned to Huntsley castle where 
he fell in love with A bell (e) of the court. This young lady had Hazel eyes, Ruby 
lips, and hair of Amber Hugh. Her cheeks were like Roses, her teeth like Pearls. 
Prince met her often 'neath the Starrs shining thru the Lindens and Oakes of the 
Blackwood and one night gave her his Pearl as a token of his affection. They were 
so Happy together and without a Kerr in the world. Many times a day the Prince 
could be heard talking to himself with words like these, "McQueen Isabel in my 
heart." Even tho the King objected and said his son Dirst not Mary because he 
was too Young, the Prince disobeyed and eloped.

Skipper Bay sinks down on steps with a vast sigh. 

Miss Lewis — Mr. Bay your remarks have aroused my curiosity. Won't you 
tell more of your adventures and escapades. 

Skipper Bay — Well, I remember Raymond Tremelling, Harold Emily, and Rus- 
sell Engelhart playing in the State Contests. I was seventeen — or was it eighteen 
when our fleet's noisemakers won the National Championship for the second time 
at Council Bluffs, Iowa . And the following year in the State Contest from our own 
ship George Switzer, Raymond Tremelling, and Edwin Mitchell won first prizes. 
They were "Class A Tunesters." 

Miss Lewis — Mr. Bay, I believe I read in our "Daily News" about your fleet's 
"J Hi Journal" being awarded distinguished rating certificates at Champaign in 1927. 

Skipper Bay — Yes, — our own crew helped to make the "Weekly Gasp" a success. 

Miss Lewis — I also remember of reading an article about your fleet's orchestra 
winning the State Contest in 1927.

160Q E. Washington St. Joilet, 111. 


By Barbara Broughton 

Far off in the distance is the enchanted Painted Desert of Arizona. It is a 
marvel of coloring, soft pastel shades running together and blending like the colors 
of a rainbow, containing the softest grays, the daintiest blues, the palest shades of 
pink and green, with tints of saffron. The colorful sands make it a miracle of 
loveliness; it was wrought by the skillful hands of the Master Arstist, God. But as 
we come nearer, the scene changes; the colors take on more vividness; the curiously 
wrought peaks and promontories, mounds and cones become startling in their dis- 
tinctness. The ethereal, fragile-appearing rose and blue, green and gray become 
most vivid; pink turns to crimson, pale blue to a dark color, soft green to dark green, 
the dainty yellow to a brilliant saffron hue. In the lower parts, down between the 
fantastically eroded cones and mounds, are petrified logs and parts of logs, the 
remnants of a mighty forest. At the edge of the desert are great beds of gypsum,

The King and Queen had a Cook of royal Stock who could Baknvcll on a Cole 
stove, and as Eaton was their delight, they were always wearing Smiles instead of 
being Stern as Kings and Queens sometimes are. Meals were served in the dining 
Hall and at the call of a Bell which was Rigged at the top of a Po/tl in the courtyard, 
all the Alderman and Gaylords, and ladies assembled. The royal Folk were enter- 
tained by the court Harper, who also played the Viola and by French Carrollers who 
could Sing Ayres and Keid with Be Witt of professionals. 

One day a Gail swept over Heath and Glen destroying Erbs and Ferns in its 
path and blowing even Harder to uproot Large Oakes. As it Russclled through the 
branches it dislodged a little Brown Boyd from its nest. My Watt, a storm!! ! But 
a real sport never Kuicks, so instead, the next morning each Woodman started to 
clear the wood from the Green and before leaving had thought to Carrie an axe. 
Soon all tracks of the Storm had disappeared from the Mohr. The Woodmen had 
even hauled dirt in a Van to fill the horrid Pitts made by the Gail and planted 
Violets in the new earth. 

One sad day the King died and the Prince and his bride returned to attend the 
funeral at the little Brown church in the Dale. The Prince was made King and his 
wife truly became his queen and they lived happily ever afterward going often to 
the grave of the old King in the cemetery on the Churchill.

Skipper Bay — Ma'am, did I mention to you that Helen Rice, a member of our 
ship, won the cello solo contest at that time. Irene Mahaffey represented our ship 
in the National High School Orchestra in 1928. 

Miss Lewis — -Your crew must have been a harmonious group. 

Skipper Bay — You bet! Margaret Jacobs and Bernard Bump, two of our own 
warblers, were chosen to work in harmony with 500 picked from other nations. 

Miss Lewis — Did you ever battle with crews of other nations? 

Skipper Bay — In a game that we called football our fleet battled other nations 
and won second place in the Big Seven Conference in 1927. Those of our crew that 
took part in the football contests were Longley, Wenck, Anderson, Munch, Kelly, 
Folk, Slack, Emerson, Fuller, Wheeler, Henderson, Jones, Mutz and Reed. 

Miss Lewis — How interesting! Were there other types of battle? 

Skipper Bay — Other types of battle? Yes — (nodding head) there was basket- 
ball, track, and tennis. Well do I remember ! There were ten from our worthy ship 
that played basketball. They were Munch, Slack, Emerson, Fuller, Folk, Longley, 
Wheeler, Henderson, and Miller. Those on the track team were Folk, Slack, Balch, 
Hull, Schaffer, Lawson, and Mutz. Robert Lawson won the privilege to compete in 
the State meet at Urbana. Six from our ship played tennis. The men that used 
this type of battle were Ricker, Tracy, Miller, Longley, Powell, and Munch. Gor-

don Longley won the Big Seven Championship that last year, and Gus Miller was 
the winner of second place. The team of our fleet won every match that was held 
during the entire year. — The G.A.A. division of our crew held skirmishes with 
the other ships in our fleet, the 1929, 1930, and 1931 and led them in athletic prowess. 

Miss Lewis — It was an all around crew. 

Skipper Bay — Twas all around indeed. One t'me we had a word battle called 
the Public Speaking Contest. Robert Folk of our ship won second prize. He had a 
fine gift of gab. Aye, Ma'am we had some good times too. On April 2 7, 1928 we 
had a battle of pure fun- the J Circus. The Public Speaking Club, the parrots of 
our crew, won first prize. Once every year we had a party. I was seventeen. Per- 
haps eighteen, when we had our last one. Our ship was the first in history to have 
a party in the Freshman year, and to have one each year following. One was a 
Golf Dance, another a Carnival, another a Christmas Party. Oh. — we had great fun 
all right. 

Miss Lewis — It has been a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity of 
listening to your interesting adventures. Won't you come again and tell me some 
more of the Good Ship 1928. 

Skipper Bay — Aye, Ma'am, 'twould please me greatly. I could tell many other 
things about the Good Ship 1928. — Good-bye. 

Miss Lewis walks to the gate with Skipper Bay and then watches him disappear 
in the distance.

Student's Favorite Eating House 





"Me and the boy friend" 

You know them, bless their hearts. A pair of youngsters, really, 
in spite of their self-reliant air and their fast-vanishing teens. 
The girl — slim, clear-eyed, merry ; the boy — flippant, a bit arro- 
gant, full of secret, earnest plans for success. 

They like each other. They go to the movies together, dance, 
quarrel a bit. They don't believe in early marriages. But her 
eyes shine when she speaks of him. "Me and the boy friend." 

One of these days, suddenly, they'll be grown up. Man and 
wife, those fearless youngsters. A home to plan, life to face. A 
budget, a savings account, economies. 

They'll make mistakes, but they'll learn quickly. She'll begin 
to be canny in the spending of money — to question prices and val- 
ues. She'll begin to read about the things she plans to buy, to 
find out all she can about them. She'll become a regular reader 
of advertisements. 

They'll help her to become the capable, wise housewife she 
wants so much to be. They'll tell her what clothes are best and 
what prices to pay for them. They'll tell her about the foods 
to buy, the electric appliances, the linoleums and draperies. 
They'll help her, as the advertisements in your Herald-News can 
help you. 

And she'll meet her responsibilities and fulfill her duties 
easily and well. She won't become a tired, flustered, inefficient 
drudge. Because her home will be modern, attractive, well-run, 
she'll keep young — through the speedy years she'll retain much 
of that shining-eyed, merry freshness. She and the "boy friend." 

Advertisements in your Herald-News are ivise 
counselors for houseivives, young and old
