To Miss Ruth Beck

Who has been a faithful and willing advisor to us in our last two years of High School, we, the Class of 1928, do respectfully dedicate this Senior Number of

Eureka Township High School, Eureka, Illinois

The new Eureka High School was completed in the late summer of the year 1927.  The cost of the building in round numbers amounted to abut $2000,000.  With a good bunch of skilled workmen, it took only a little over a year to erect the building.  Besides having very well furnished class rooms for the different departments of the school there is a dark room for science experiments, lecture room generally used for science, a physics and chemistry laboratory, fire-proof motion picture booth, well equipped manual training room, farm mechanics shop, excellent sewing room and cooking laboratory, and a library that is as good as almost any high school the size of Eureka maintains.

The gymnasium is as large as the average high school gym.  It has a balcony on the two longest sides and a large seating capacity downstairs.  One can easily see any part of the game from any seat in the bleachers or from the balcony.  The locker and shower rooms are as convenient as any to be found.

The auditorium is one of the best in the state of Illinois.  It has a seating capacity of about 400 downstairs and 175 in the balcony.  The lighting system works by a very neat and simple arrangement.  The stage is large and well-equipped with several sets of modern scenery.

The building is equipped with both the hot air furnace and the steam type.  The ventilation is good and fresh air is always kept in the rooms and foul air passes out by the circulation made by a hugh fan in the basement.

We, the Senior Class of 1928, feel proud to be the first class to graduate from the building.  We feel that it was a great thing to go to such a wonderfully equipped building but the classes to follow will enjoy even more conveniences when the clock system and other things are added as years pass by.  This building, we hope, will be kept in condition so that when we go back to see it in later years we will recognize it as Eureka High School.

Mr. Gallaspie

Mr. Gallaspie, our coach, became a member of the faculty at the beginning of the past year.  He, together with Miss Beck, was chosen as the Senior Class advisor.  Although there have been few opportunities for him to do a great deal for the class during their last year, he has shown a willingness to help out at all times.  He has also been a true and loyal friend to each and every member of the class.  Mr. Gallaspie will be in E.H.S. again next year and the Class of 1928 is sure that he will be a good advisor for the class to which he is appointed.

Miss Beck

Miss Beck has been our advisor for the two most important years of High School; the Junior and Senior years.  It was largely due to her help that we put on a very good banquet for the Seniors two years ago.  She encouraged us to save and helped in any way she could in order to raise money for the class.  She coached our class plays which were successes both as plays and also financially.  She has done many small but important things for the class that a great many know nothing about.  As we have graduated we lose Miss Beck as an advisor but not as a friend.  She helped us through all our troubles and the hope of the class of '28 is that the class who will have Miss Beck as their advisor will benefit and profit by her work as much as we did.

The Baccalaureate

The Baccalaureate services were held at the Christian church on the evening of May 27th at 8 o'clock.  Twenty-four hours before the services the speaker of the evening, Mr. A.E. Kreider of Bluffton, Ohio, telegraphed to the effect that he could not come, because of doctor's instructions.

Rev. E.E. Higdon, of the Eureka College, substituted however, and gave an interesting and inspirational talk to the graduates and their parents and friends.

His theme was: "What Ails Our Youth."

He said he would be quite different and would talk over our heads to our parents that evening instead of to the class of graduates. Nevertheless, we all received a most worthy insight on life which each will carry with him into his own world.
The comparison of the "older folks" was the subject matter of the address.  There seems, according to Rev. Higdon, two types of these folks.

There is one which, thinking about the many things accomplished and being done by the younger generation, about the many things they want to do, and about the things they think about, is beginning to think and has thought that this younger generation is "going to the dogs".  They have automobiles that go fifty and sixty miles an hour.  They drive scores of miles to some entertainment and they stay out late at night.  Our young folks are rapidly coming to destruction!

Then, there is the other type that think of youth as remaining the same from decade to decade, growing neither worse nor better.  True they have cars but, didn't the boys use to drive their fathers' buggies and drive the horses as fast as they could?  It wasn't because they didn't want to go fifty and sixty miles an hour but because they didn't have the means.  Our young folks today are the same as all young folks always were.

As young people we must realize that the great scientific research going forward and that that has gone on has not only brought comfort, luxury, and pleasure, but it has brought us something else.  Along with these comforts, luxuries, and these pleasures have come thousands of new temptations not known to the youth of a century ago.  To prove our worth, to prove we are not destroying our morals, to prove that there is something of real value within us, we must fight and overcome these temptations.  If we can stand up under a heavier load surely we are as capable as the young generation that have lived before us.

High School Commencement

Wednesday evening, May 30, 1928, was the big night 11 was at this time that the thirteenth annual High School commencement was held at the auditorium. At approximately eight o'clock the nineteen graduates marched into the auditorium as Beth Wilson played the "Marche Romaine", and they took their places upon the stage. The invocation was given by Reverend Fred Helfer. Following this Miss Alma Beckwith, a local college student, gave as a vocal number "Robin, Robin, Sing Me a Song", by Spross.

The speaker of the evening was the Hon.Francis G. Blair, Illinois State Superintendent of Public Instruction. He delivered a very wonderful address on "The Records We Make." He gave many examples of how we make records for ourselves and also how we learn and remember the records of others who have gone on before us. We were indeed very fortunate in securing Mr. Blair as speaker for the evening of the commencement exercises of the first class to graduate from our new school building.

We were next favored with a vocal solo by Lyle Moore, also a local college student. He sang "Aspiration" by Cox.
The big thing, however, came next for we were given our diplomas for which we had been diligently laboring for four long years. They were of a different kind than those presented for the previous years. Being of a smaller size they were enclosed in green leather folders on the outside of which was engraved the graduate's name in gold letters.

To make the evening complete Professor Armand Roth of Eureka College gave a few violin solos which were very pleasing to the audience.

Following the benediction the graduates remained in the auditorium a short time where the people had a chance to meet and congratulate them.

Class History

In the fall of the year 1924 a very eager group of Freshmen made preparations for the flight they were constantly looking forward to.  Their destination was a far off place, where, it was said, many almost unheard of opportunities and privileges and joys could be found.  Not only did they wish to broaden their knowledge because on this flight they would have many unforeseen adventures.  Mr. Kesler and Miss McCluggage were appointed to pilot our group of 37.  George Renfer, our chief mechanic, so very carefully operated the class machinery that we made to our far away destination.  There were no great obstacles to obstruct this part of our flight and when we reorganized the next fall it was found that eight of them had already given up hope but as five more joined us this year there were only three seats that remained vacant for this part of the flight.  Louise Frerichs was assigned the task of guiding the class over the mountains and scas of Geometry, Caesar, English, etc.  She had two very able guides, Mr. Alford and Miss McCluggage, our pilots.

At the end of the first half of our journey many had renounced their willingness to further continue, having remained on the various mountains we crossed or on some isolated island.

At a moment's call George Renfer was again placed in the mechanic's bench; and a new set of pilots were appointed, Miss Beck and Mr. Alford.  It was a small hardy group of 20 that braved the dangers of this flight growing more perilous at each leap and bound of our ship of the air.  One evening in May 1927, we paused for a brief period from our daily routine of constant advancing into the higher altitudes of learning to honor our elders, the Seniors, by a banquet.  They were indeed to be honored because they had succeeded in escaping all the perils and hardships of the sea we were so earnestly endeavoring to cross.

In September, 1927, as the day dawned beautifully to start the final part of our flight, 19 courageous passengers took their places and remained faithful to the end.  Kanardy Taylor, our mechanic for the finish of the flight, carried us to fame and glory.  Mr. Gallaspie and Miss Beck very ably assisted him as pilots.

On May 30, 1928, from our high position, we sighted the smooth but much longed for land of graduation.  In the evening of the same day as the sun was sinking in the west we went as one to receive our passports giving us the privileges of entering and traversing life as we pleased.

Senior Class Day Program

This year, we, the Seniors, had trouble keeping the unruly Juniors from breaking up our Class Day program, as have Seniors in years preceding and, safe to say, rears succeeding this. We were sure of the presence of various contrivances when we found three huge electric bells by climbing through an air vent upon the stage and dropping through a narrow shaft to a duct below the stage. Also after discovering a group of busy Juniors in the  dark room and one who was busy doing something on the roof, we decided that if we were going to give a program the auditorium would probably be too noisy, so when the crowd had gathered they kindly transferred to the study hall at the request of our President. 

Although we were bothered by alarm clocks and little bells, we were sure that it wasn't as bad as if the program were in the auditorium.

The program then proceeded as follows:

Senior Prophecy
Sand Hill, Missouri
May 28. 1938.

Dear Miss Frerichs:
I suppose this title will suit you as your High School pupils probably call you that. How do you like teaching Physics in Eureka High since Mr. Moore had to go South for his sore throat?  It doesn't seem possible that you could have been teaching for five years. Since you ask,I will tell you what the members of our H. S. Class are doing at the present. It's a good thing you're not from Missouri too.

Esther Ball is taking dancing lessons in New York. You know she was always so anxious to dance when she went to High School.

Kanardy Taylor took to drinking and gambling. His downfall was created by his lack of confidence in the opposite sex.

Helen Sornberger lives in Africa where she runs a beauty parlor for the natives. In connection with this she also does costuming. She was first inspired to become a costumer for the negroes when she was in the Senior play.

Of course, you know, Louise, John Morrow is a lawyer. The only case he ever lost was when he was defending the McNary-Haugen Bill.

Helen Gillan has given up her job of teaching school and gone to Quebec where she is working in a washing machine factory.

I suppose you would like to know what Delmar is doing, too. He decided to become a forest ranger and live under the pines. He really has a snap of it for when some desperado comes close to him he shoots the man so as to save the expense of a trial and the toil of taking care of him, and he has the government put water pipes through the forest so when more is a forest fire he can call the Fire Department.

John Crawford discovered oil in Alaska when he was there on his non-stop flight to the South Pole.

Martha Smellie is on the stage where she plays juvenile parts. Recently she has been on a run down the Mississippi River in a showboat.

Carl Johann has always noticed what a detriment smoke is to large cities so to do his bit he has recently received a patent on smokeless cigarettes.
Vivian is living on Sandy Beach in Florida. She is very wealthy for her husband runs a large factory which extracts "fats" from fatal decisions. She spends her spare time in drawing pictures of the Sandy surroundings.

George Renfer and his wife are running a chicken farm during the time they aren't running the car.  Winnie says she likes the fuzzy little chickens but George says he likes the fried ones best.  Why fool the public?

Florence Bradle has been delivering some stirring speeches on her theory of "Why the World Goes Round Counter-Clockwise instead of Clockwise."

Lawrence Nichols applied for a job in the movies and got it. They asked him why he had such long legs and he told them they were long so they would reach from him to the ground.  He takes the part of the giraffe in the animal stories for the kiddies.

Talitha travels with a show troupe.  She is the four year old girl who can answer any question that an average high school girl can answer.  They never know the difference.  Several colleges have offered her tuition but since she graduated six years ago and has had post-graduate work at the University, she has to refuse all offers.

I suppose you know Wayne Smith is running a moving picture machine in Peoria, for he always goes to Eureka to attend the picture shows on Sunday afternoons.

Evangeline got her much-longed-for wish and has gone to the Holy Land.  She was so inspired by the things she saw there that she has decided to become a nun and teach good-will and loving kindness.

Well, Louise, as this is all the Senior Class, I think I had better close.  Tell me how Miss Beck is getting along teaching Senior English.  Ask her, for me, if her class is any smarter than the class of '28.  I certainly would like to see her for I wonder if she has aged anymore than she did the last two years we were in school.  Write soon and don't forget to tell me all about the rest of the Faculty of '28 is doing.

Your Friend,
Ruth Hagan.

Class Will

We the members of the Senior class of Eureka High School, possessing super-human ability in the broad expanse of the fields of knowledge, do hereby make, declare, and publish this as our last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills made by us. Be it known tható

To Rachel Orth, Louise Frerichs bestows her favorite book on "How to Reduce by Pumping Flat Tires."

As Martha Smellie arrives at school soon after the janitor, she leaves to Hannah Aspel her position in front of the door before it opens.

Kanardy Taylor leaves his beautiful voice to his kid cousin, Hubert Hallam.

Joe Klaus leaves to Cecil Whittington his ability to solve all geometrical propositions.

Evangeline leaves to Mary Eleanor the right to break her record in being dismissed from classes.

Florence Bradle leaves to Dot Doan her taste for wild parties.

Esther Ball wills to Odelia Rippel her numerous pairs of earrings.

Carl Johann leaves to Robert Davidson his new Chevrolet provided Robert will keep it in continuous use by taking High School girls riding.

Talitha Heyungs leaves her unusual height to be divided equally between Margaret Vorhees and Edith Hunsinger.

Lawrence leaves to Fredora Pifer his privilege of making every day a holiday from studying.

Wayne Smith leaves to Frank Musick his old Ford so that Frank may entertain himself with the rattles found in and around it.
John Morrow leaves to Dwayne Perrine his place on the debating team as an aid to overcoming bashfulness.

Ruth Hagan leaves her boisterousness and free and easy manner to Mabel Leighton.

Wayne Smith leaves his permanent wave to Casey Madden.

Helen Gillan leaves to Elma Smith her old love letters, so that Elma may get a thrill from reading them.

Vivian bequeaths her quietness in class and about the halls to Helen Williams who seems to make music and noise wherever she goes.

Every student should have high ambitions,so to Betty Dickinson, John Crawford leaves his ambitions for high grades.

Joe Klaus leaves to Russel Flanagan his privilege of entertaining Elma Smith in the library during the 4th hour.

Esther Ball leaves a quarter to Marjorie Wilson so Marjorie may get a couple of packages of "Golden Glint" to change the color of her hair occasionally.

Evangelyn McNeely, the girl who sets the styles, leaves her old fashion books and patterns to Beth Wilson.

Helen Sornberger leaves a package of hair-pins and a couple of hairnets to Viola Wuethrich.

Florence Bradle leaves her disturbing giggle to Mary McGuire.

Ruth Hagan leaves to Verna Smith her old scale books for the violin also a couple of mutes to make the squeaks sound something like music.

George Renfer leaves Winnie some extra time so Winnie can attend some of the 9th hour classes she has skipped.

Louise Frerichs bequeaths several pairs of spike heels to Clara Perrine in case Clara ruins some of her own.

Because of the difficulty we Seniors had in rehearsing the love scenes in the play we suggest that the Juniors allow Verneal to coach the love scenes in their play next year, since she professes to have had experience.

Helen Gillian leaves her ability to dress and get a shower in 7 minutes to Mildred Connel, who is always late to class after gym.

Kanardy Taylor leaves his enviable reputation for getting the school every day on time to Anna Mae Adams.

Martha Smellie leaves to Thelma Kuntz one large package of Pep.

George Renfer leaves to John Thewlis the right to have dates with all the girls in High School.

Lawrence Nichols leaves to Thelma Van Fossen his wonderful ability to spell.

John Crawford leaves to Kenneth Dorward his unusual grace in dancing so that he may properly entertain the guests at next year's Junior-Senior Prom.

As Marie Bradle seems to have neglected some of her extra curricular activities, Helen Sornberger leaves to her 5 volumes on "How to Debate."

After carefully considering the matter, the Senior class as a whole judges that nothing could be left to Gene Brubaker which would give him any more happiness than he seems to be experiencing all ready.

To the faculty of the E.T.H.S. we as a class feel that we are leaving enough when we are - leaving.

In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hand and seal, the twenty-eighth day of May, in the year of our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred Twenty-eight.

U.O. Nothing
I.O. Less
Attorneys at law.

The Junior-Senior Banquet

The Twentieth Annual Junior-Senior Banquet given by the class of 1927 was held in the High School Gymnasium May 25 at 6:80 p. m.

When everyone had arrived Mr. and Mrs.Moore led the grand march to the dining room.

The gym was divided, one half was the dining room the other half for the dance. It was beautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns,crepe paper, candles and big Japanese umbrellas. The tables were decorated in green and white, tall green candles and rose nut cups.

Between the different courses speeches were given. Betty Dickinson was toastmistress, the welcome was given by Dwayne Perrine and the response by Kanardy Taylor. Mr. Moore's five minute speech "A Senior and the Rest of the World", happened to last half an hour.

When the dinner was over every one went to the ball room where music was furnished by the Theta  Kappa Nu orchestra.  There were several feature numbers between dances.  Harold Perrine sang "Ramona" and Dorothy Doan and Marie Bradle san "Together."

One of the "surprise" numbers on the program was a Spanish dance by Miss Katherine Barr, a friend of Miss Seabert's.  Everyone enjoyed it greatly and many encores were demanded.

At eleven the party broke up with everyone saying that it had been a huge success.

The menu consisted of: Fruit Cocktail, Fricassee Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Rolls Butter/Jelly, Peas in Timbales, Scalloped Corn, Per Salad, Cakes, Ice Cream, Coffee
