To Mr. J. P.
Our true and loyal advisor, who has
guided us through our four years of High School life, we, the class
of 1927, respectfully dedicate this Senior Number of the
Mrs. Sandifer was our
class advisor for our most important, our Senior year in High
School. She helped us in all our troubles and hardships being
particularly considerate and helpful at our most trying times. She
was not only a wonderful advisor but a true friend to each and
everyone in the class. We of the Senior Class sincerely appreciate
all the many things she has done for us because we realize the
difficulty in trying to discipline and manage amicably a Senior
Class, especially one like our.
We wish her the best success
in her future work and life, and to her we express the deepest
gratitude and thanks for her careful and kind supervision over our
class and her interest in all our activities during the year
Mr. Scheid has been our faithful advisor and sponsor
for four years. To him we owe much of the success we have attained
during our High School life. It was through his careful planning
that we first started to make and save money when we were Freshmen
for the Junior-Senior banquet. When we were Sophomores he continued
to be our leader and councillor, taking our interests to heart and
always making good suggestions. Under his direction we successfully
went through our Junior year with all its many trials. And during
our Senior year he has willingly and gladly aided us in
our financial endeavors. This last Mr.
Scheid has been one of the Nautilus faculty advisors and has given
the Nautilus his loyal support and aid. We of the Senior Class
wish to thank Mr. Scheid for all that he has ever done for us.
He has done many little things for us which we did not fully
appreciate at the time, but now we realize his supervision at its
highest value. We hope that the following classes for whom he
will be advisor and friend will benefit as much by his surveillance
and care as we have during the past four
On Friday, June 3, 1927, the twelfth
annual commencement exercises were held in the Christian
Twenty-six, thirteen boys and thirteen girls, marched
in and took their places, as Miss Sprague played "The Tempo".
Rev. Helfer gave the invocation, after which Leslie Pierce favored
us with a vocal solo,, "Until."
For twelve years seven girls
of the twenty-six Seniors, and five of the boys were continuous
classmates. At the close of the evening we all realized that
we were forever severed from the tie which had so closely connected
us. Of course each and every Senior was proud to receive his
diploma, but the true fact of parting, saddened our hearts. We
may meet again and again but never to work in the harness of
Dr. P. C. Somerville, from the Wesleyan
University, Salina, Kansas, gave the address. He presented a
most interesting talk on "The Double D of Youth." In this we
learned that power means nothing unless it can be put into use, to
the proper thing and at the proper time.
The Double D stood
for "duty" and "dreams". Every person to be success must be,
to a certain extent, a dreamer. But the dreams are of no value
unless they are put into action. One thing we were pleased to
hear Mr. Somerville tell us, was that the present generation is no
worse than the past.
Following this Lenore Wilson rendered a
delightful piano solo, "Polonaise". Dr. W. D. Madison,
President Board of Education, gave us a short talk and presented to
us the diplomas for which we so long toiled.
College Girls' Quartette sang three selections befitting the
occasion. Rev. Ernest L. Fernandes gave the benediction which
completed the program.
BanquetA large garden overhung with a May pole of
pastel shades formed the setting for the Junior-Senior banquet at
the Lida's Wood on May nineteenth. Covers for fifty were laid on
tables of four, attractively decorated with red carnations and
Menus found at each place read as follows: Pineapple
Cocktail, Swiss Steak, Mashed Potatoes Gravy, Creamed Peas, Celery
Curls, Imperial Salad, Mayonnaise, Rolls/Butter, Strawberry
George Renfer, toast master, cleverly introduced
the speakers of the evening. Joseph Klaus welcomed the guests and
Lowell Colburn and Prof. Moore responded. Haecker's Orchestra
furnished music during the dinner.
A short program followed
in the parlors. The first thing on the program was a one an play,
"Entertaining Sister's Beau". This was very cleverly given and
afforded the guests much laughter as well as some embarrassment
(N'est-ce pas, Melvin?) Imogene Reynolds next gave a reading which
was followed by a piano duet by Vivian Mars and Martha Smellie.
Vivian also gave a vocal solo. What Virginia Reynolds gave was the
question; anyway it was very original and clever and gave the
Seniors a chance to view themselves as others see them. To conclude
the program Ruth Hagan read a prophecy which she and her brother,
Delmar Hagan, had written.
The Junior-Senior banquet was
certainly a grand success. The wish of the Class of '27 is
the Class of "28 will be as royally entertained next year as it
entertained the Senior Class this year.

annual general celebration and chance to get even at last.

Sunday, May 29, at the regular
evening service, the Baccalaureate service for the senior Class of
Eureka Township High School was held at the Christian church.
Helfer of the Christian church gave the address. His subject
was "A Passion for Personality." Mr. Beam of the Methodist
church and Mr. Fernandes of the Presbyterian church assisted in the
service. A special anthem "Festival Te Deum", was given by the
After the service a reception under the auspices
of the Eureka churches was held in the basement of the church, for
the Seniors. Prof. Compton acted as chairman and the program
consisted of: Vocal Solos, "Aspirations," "Thanks Be to God,"
by Lyle Moore. Violin solos, "Holy City," "Traumerii", by Miss
Seabert, and a short address by Mr. Fernandes. Punch and
wafers were served after the program.
The Seniors of '27 presented their play "The
Boomerang" at the Eureka College Gymnasium, April twenty-ninth.
While it was a most excellently chosen cast, the creditable
performance, was to a great extent, the result of the capable
directing of Miss Ruth Beck.
The plot of the play centers
around the love affairs of Budd Woodbridge (Arthur Mosher). He
is madly in love with Grace Tyler (Phyllis Waggoner). Grace throws
poor Budd into a case of jealousy when she pays quite a bit of
attention to Preston DeWitt (Clarence Brubaker). Mrs. Creighton
Woodbridge (Dorothy Barker), Budd's mother, is quite worried over
her son's strange actions and takes him to Dr. Gerald Sumner (Donald
Moore) a young doctor, who has just begun his practice. Dr. Sumner,
with the help of his efficient nurse, Virginia Xelva (Helen
Butchart) soon analyze Budd's case and do their best to cure him of
But alas! The disease proves quite contagious.
Dr. Sumner himself has it quite bad and Miss Exlva and Miss Tyler
have a minor case of it.
As luck would have it tho' everyone
recovers from the disease and Dr. Sumner's cases turn out
Lorin Wright played the part of Hartley,
the butler, quite well.
Marian Sumner (Betty Davis), Dr.
Sumner's sister and Gertrude Ludlow (Pearly Bach), a friend of the
Sumner family visited the Doctor's office quite frequently and
offered their advice to him.
Mr. Stone (Clifford Flanagan)
who was one of Dr. Sumner's patients, had a splendid makeup and
acted his part well.
Oh oui, oui, Emile (George Riley) the
French valet and jack of all trades, must be complimented for his
pronunciation of the French

The Class Prophecy
And Lo, it came to pass that in the ancient city of
Eureka, in the year 1927, there lived young men and women of
exceeding beauty and grace. When those whose duty it was to instruct
the youth of that fair city in the wisdom and the knowledge of the
times perceived that their pupils had acquired an abundance of
learning, they took them up into the Mountain of Commencement and
showed unto them all the kingdoms of the earth.
them unto fine farms and fat cattle, great factories and rich mines,
wondrous systems of transportation and great forests, fisheries,
vineyards, orchards, stores and schools. It was a fat and goodly
land with much to be desired. All these things did the teachers of
Eureka High School promise unto the youth of Eureka, did they but
have the courage to go in and take possession, and the strength of
purpose to wrest them from those who had already arrived.
so it came to pass that the maidens did powder their noses and paint
their faces, and the young men did crease their trousers and put on
neck ties of wondrous hue, and they went forth to take possession of
The youths of Eureka were exceedingly valiant and
they did go forth with great courage and strive with mighty purpose
until they had indeed possessed themselves with goodly possessions
and were known for mighty achievements. And many maidens did go
forth into rich lands and marry themselves unto handsome
men. There were twenty-six in this band of youth, and although
some turned aside and went by round-about ways, all came at last to
the land of success; and peace, prosperity, and plenty are their

from the mountain of Commencement was beheld a river which flowed
happily on through the night, and the hills on it's banks guided it
toward the break of day, and then the river in it's freedom still
toiling onward reached the sea and there was lost to view. Yet
it pushed onward and carried warmth to distant shores. The
strong, mighty river represents the Class of '27 for as in the night
it toiled onward thus the class has toiled on toward light and
success. As it left its native source thus the class left the
school behind and as it met the mighty and noisy ocena so those
youths met with adversity, trials, and hardships, but as the great
river, the Class of '27 became a blessing to humanity.
Long years ago, when might was right and Seniors
still held sway in the halls of learning, a band of ruffians broke
into the quiet vaults of knowledge with all the freshness and
greeness of the country fields still clinging to them. this
band was quickly but guietly suppressed by the Lords of Creation who
The Class History
Soon the ruddy flush of the free and open life
faded from their faces under the pale light of midnight oils shining
on the shackles of Algebra and Latin.
The band numbered about
forty strong and were led by Donald Moore who had but lately joined
the rough company from the South but he held sway with ease and
guided his followers on through the toils of the Faculty to
pleasures and parties in spite of the Seniors.
With hope of
coming fareedom' the band began to earn the necessary shekels for
that last important gesture of Milords, the Junior-Senior
Banquet. All through their later years until the final day
they worked to this end by selling nourishment to the ever hungry
Then the restless spirits in the band broke forth in
revolution and the mighty way-lord, Clifford Flanagan, grasped the
band in his powerful hand. An lo! with the revolution rose a
spirit of cockiness equalled only by the Seniors. "Twas a sad
thing - so young and yet so ignorant. Then in bliss did this
merry band break all bounds in the matter of parties and deference
to elders. Still they were sobered by the heavy hand of study
and the danger of losing their heads in work.
Then again a
revolution came and this time all bowed to the firm rule of a girl,
Skee Ridgely, who was christened Mary Elizabeth. This wise
head led them through their increasing favor with the rulers and
guided them safely through preparation for the grandeur of the
Junior-Senior Banquet, called the play "The Whole Town's
Talking". And on through the Banquet itself she led them until
the last revolution came that brought the band the longed-for
freedom for which they had been preparing for so many centuries or
what seemed like centuries.
Then glory flamed like the hair of
the leader of the band who was that little Colly Colburn. The
band in the mean time had lost a few members who had lost their
lives in the great struggle for knowledge. At the time of the
Golden Age the band consisted of only twenty-six, much smaller than
previous rulers, but it is the quality and not the quantity that
counts. This band then in their prime, made the Freshmen do
various humiliating things ably aided and abetted by the
taskmasters, the Faculty. Glory did not weaken their
civilization however. They still worked at the never ending
lessons. Then a rest came in the form of more work - the
Senior Play, "Boomerang". Then routine of court claimed their
interests again until they sat at the feast given by the
At last the band which had burned a never to be
forgotten trail through the pages of history, broke before the
conquest of their own vassals, the oncoming reign of future
Seniors. But the old people of the country villages will not
soon forget the revels of the Golden Age of Merry
