NYith our School days drawing.: to a close when
we must come to the parting of the ways and
embark upon the "Ship of Life," we, the Senior
Class of '37, leave as a lasting remembrance to
the lower classmen this ALTOIS.
Each officer has contributed toward this book
with the hope that in after years it may lllftlllg'
back pleasant memories of teachers, friends,
classmates, and all the promoters of education.
Even though you think that it could have been
done better, we humbly ask that you accept this
in the spirit in which we Seniors have given it
to you. We have tried to make this a book you
will always cherish.
Our staff thanks each individual who has
helped in. any way in the publication of the Al-
tois. Especially do we thank Miss Constance
Pierson, our advisor.

YVe, the Senior Class of '37. dedicate the
AI.'l'0lS to Miss Constant-e Pierson, our Altois
Advisor. We hope in reading' this Altois she may
recall our 2lCl1l9V9IllE'lllS socially, athletically, and
seholastieally as well as the memories of our good
times when she was our sponsor.
Often the staff would meet with obstacles and
did not know which way to turn but all we need-
ed to do was ask Miss Pierson and all our cares
were ended. Without her untiring zeal we would
not have heen. able to accomplish this great feat.
May there he only pleasant memories in her
mind of this task which together she and the
Seniors have completed.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board of Education is oft-en overlooked when credit is given at the
end of a successful school term. However. we, "The Seniors of '37", wish
to thank the Board of Education for the cooperation they showed when they
presented A. C. H. S. with a hot-water heater, cabinets in various rooms, win-
dow shades, and the fine cabinet in the clothing room.
We could always depend on the Board of Education to assist us. This
class can never forget the consideration this splendid organization has shown.
Since the Board of Education believes in a well equipped building and
good teachers, our school has acquired a high standard.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
ln 193-l the Student Council was organized. This body was formed
for the purpose of deciding upon the various school problems that con-
fronted the teachers. Two honor roll students were chosen from each
class, a boy and a. girl.
In September 1936, the following persons were chosen for the Student
Uouncil: The Seniors chose, Martha Schroeder and Earl Tappendorfg
Juniors-Helen Zimmerman. and Glen Sticeg Sophomores-Mildred Brauer
and Robert Bicknell: Freshmen-Catherine Koeberlein and Eugene Bauer.
The officers were: Chairman-Glen Sticc: Secretary-Mildred Brauer, and
Mr. Haag. Sponsor. 1 ,
Some of the tasks accomplished were:
1. Two persons are allowed on the assembly floor at the same
2. A student must have at least a "t"' in dcportmcnt and an
ot' "B" to he exempted from the semester examinations.
3. A Christmas box was planned and it was seen that every
ceived a present. '
4. Musical and Essay contests were proposed.
5. Eighth period programs on Friday were to be sponsored by
6. De mortment grades are averaged in. with the grades.
VVe feel as if the Student Council is really well worth its efforts. Ift
teaches the students to respect t.heir school and ,its different organizations.

"The Plass of 'Il7", which surpasses all other classes. wishes to con-
fer special credit to the faculty who have made a great sacrifice to humanlty
by trying to educate the youth of Altamont.
Often they have become discouraged. and disheartened in their work.
Nevertheless, they have continued to try and by successive failures and
disappointments have succeeded. Perhaps they feel that they have been
unsuccessful, but we feel that they have been snccessfulg and as proof of
our belief we will try to do our best because their accomplishments can only
be shown in the lives of students.
To whatevelr place we might rise in the world, we will always feel that
our teachers have been responsible for our advancement.

"IN THE EVENING"
Of all the glories of the day
I love the sunset best,
Whe11 my troubles aside I lay
And turn to joys and rest.
The sky changes from purple to gold
And makes a delightful scene
Later the stars appear, so bold
Giving the sky a brighter sheen.
The cows come treading wearily home
While they slowly chew their cud,
Bees seek the hive, n.o more to roam
Until the S1111 shines through the woods.
The floweret droopin.g its tiny head
In the evening can be seen,
And the birds are hopping oft to bed
To dream of the grass so green.
Then comes the quiet twilight
VVhich everyone should enjoyg
Next appears the soft moonlight
That holds charms for every boy.
At last arrives the spirited night
With the moon, of which I have told
Making the World, peaceful and quiet,
Full of the wonders it can hold.
"IN THE WINTER"
When the wind whistles through the trees
When the leaves become brown and sere,
And the snow bird which we see
Hops to a hollow oak tree near.
Then we know that winter's nigh
And the grain is stored away.
Mr. Black Bear, with fl heavy sigh
Goes to sleep 'till some bright day.
At home in tl1e eve everyone is cheery,
While the ehestnuts roast in the fire
Not even grandmother can be dreary
'Cause of her knitting she does not tire.
The young folks all at checkers play
While eating popcorn Snowy white
Old Rover on the rugs does lay
Glad he belongs to a family so bright.
VVhile everyone inside is cheery
Outside the snowflakes quietly fall,
Like magic, making the world less dreary
And blanketing the shrubs, both large an

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
-Urns sEN1oRs KNOW AND THEY KNOW 'PHAT THEY KNOW"
In the year of 1919, just eighteen years ago, most ot' the boys and girls
who now comprise the Se11ior Flass of A. U. H. S. first gazed upon. this
great world. Since this memorable year a few of us have stuck together and
are now ready to make our advent into the world from high school.
l'nlike most of the other Freshman classes preceding us, we entered our
high school career as a group of thirty-eight bold. interested and determined
students. Although we were considered green and dumb Freshies by the
upper classmen. most of us Freshmen thought we were very smart and could
get along in high school just as well as they. We soon discovered, however.
that there was much to be learned here, and settled down to an enjoyable
year. The social events consisted ofa weiner roast at the Cliffs, a Halloween
party. and a Spring party. We chose as our officers: Linder Devore, Presi-
dentg Warren Dunn, Vice-presidentg Miriam Ehlers, Secretary: Mary U.
Yondenbosch. Treasurer, and Mr. VV. L. Briggs as Sponsor.
ln September 1934 as a bunch of thirty-one giggling Sophomores, we
entered the then familiar assembly, determined to succeed in our second term
ot' this education. VVe elected the following officers: Jack VVilson. Presi-

Signed, published and declared by the above named Senior Class of A.
C. H. S., of 1937, as and for their last will and testament in the presence- of
us, who in their presence, and in the presenee of each other, and at the request
ofthe Senior Class. have hereunto Signed or subscribed our names as witnesses.
May 31, 1951. Fifteen years ago a group of twenty-seven were listening
ro advice given to them in their commencement address. Some had tears in
their eyes and lumps in their throats because they realized that friends must
say "adieu"-some forever, and, some for a period of time. Each individual
P f f- 4 4
must go out. in.to the world and work for himself. Some had easy sailing
but others had lives filled with sorrow, disappointment, and many hardships
that no one has ever known about. Life to a few was one hard struggle after
another but finally the goal was reached and great was their reward. Mem-
ory carries me back to the name of each individual and vaguely I try to
recall what they are doing.
Last fall my assistant called me and said, "Mrs. E. F. Harrison has just
breathed her last, and her daughtier-in-law has called requesting that you
have charge of the embalming and funeral services. The address is 12,56
Rosewood Avenue, New York City." Immediately I put on my coat, stepped
into my car and whizzed through the busy streets of New York City toward
Rosewood Avenue. Finally I reached my destination, got out of the car,
and walked up to the door of a beautiful bungalow. I was greeted by a lady
who appeared to be thirty or thirty-two years of age. She said, "Miss Ehlers,
I do not expect you to remember me but I am one of your former friends and
l have always said that if any of my relatives died I wanted you to embalm
them." Astounded at that remark, I looked at Mrs. Harrison and tried to
recall whom she reminded' me of. Suddenly, I said, "Wl1y', Mary f'atherin.e.
of all people." She said, "Yes, It. is I. I married Mr. Harrison, jr., June 12.
1939 and his business has brought him to this Metropolis. He has had very
prosperous years and the death of Mrs. Harrison, sr., has been our first
sorrow." She had not changed during the fifteen years. For the months to
follow, we renewed our friendship and often talked about the class of '37
and what they were doing.
Many times I received letters from Marthagene James Devore saying
that Linder and she were living in Chicago, Illinois, where he was coaching
in one of the high schools. He was gaining a name for himself as well as
making friends wherever he went. They have two children, Lina Lee and
Billy. Martha said, "Billy is just like his fat.her an.d Lina Lee is just be-
ginning to be mischievious. Of course, she eouldn't help but be because
we both are."
If we were to go to Hollywood, we would see Helen Rockwell, known as
"Shirley Rochelle," play in the movies. Her latest picture was "Back in
the Days of '36." She is still the same, though--laughing. smiling, and
In a little country school house at Spring Valley, Illinois, Martha Schroed-
er is trying to teaeh the 3 R'S-reading, 'riting, and 'ritlnnetic. She shakes
her finger. peers over her glasses, and then begins to talk to them. Many a
ehild has been brought into the cultural class by her untiring efforts. She
doesnft mind her walk of two miles tlirougfli mud in rainy weather because
she knows she is serving someone.
Several weeks before I had gone back home. Things had changed but
several of the old class were still in Altamont. ,lack Leitzell and Edwin Tap-
pan were helping at home on the farm. Both of these former classmates
were still chums. During the time I was vacationing in the good fresh air
of Altamont I never saw Jael: but what he had a smile stretched from ear to
ear. Edwin still loved to plav his harmonica and he played it. better than
the day I had to plan the program in music class and he favored us with the
seleetions, "Red VVing" and "Old Folks 'it Home." Pauline Mills was liv-
ing at the home of her parents. Mr. Mills, her father, was still teaching in
the Altamont Grade Schools and held the position of superintendent.
From our ranks a world renowned philosopher had arisen. This was
none other than Cyril Patterson who had joined our group during the Senior
year in A. C. H. S. In English IV he had been noted for his wit and Wise-
eraeks, but little did anyone think he would give a philosophy of life in gen-
eral t.o other people. Several of the old gang who had heard him said they

enjoyed l1im better than tl1ey did Hill Bone, back in the days we went to
high school. In those days we thought Bill was simply GR-AND!
In Barnes Hospital St. l.ouis, Missouri, Doris Frazer is seen in a nurse
uniform. She is putting forth unceasing effort trying to cheer the people
suffering with pai11 who think life holds nothing more for them. Many a
person's heart is made lighter by her smile and kind word.
From the Shorthand they learned in A. C. H. S. and also that tl1ey learn-
ed at the Oentralia Business College, Earl Tappendorf, and Rosalie Zimmer-
man have secured good positions. Slowly they have advanced from one posi-
tion to another until finally they have set world records.
Of the Major League Ball players of the year '51 we see the names of
Alvin Ferchow, Harold Zander, VVarren Dunn, and Oscar Schroeder in the
headlines of our daily newspapers and also in the daily broadcasts over
the N. B. U. Network. Each boy thanks Mr. Haag for the trainin.g he gave
them in school. Although each boy is single it has been rumored accord-
ing to reports given to me from letters from my friends that Oscar is planning
to propose to Doris Frazer. This is not a surprised because they cherished
each other hack in 4 nr school days ard nieny wc' e the times we doubled-dated
lt' we were'to go to Mattoon, Illinois and visit the Montgomery VVard
Store our eyes would catch sight of Marian Finfrock. She enjoys clerking
very much and says that she has cast all thoirrhts of matrimony aside.
Over in Paris, France, Ruth Zimmerman is a designer. Her dress styles
are known from the east to the west: from the north to the south. Ruth al-
ways tries to make fancy dresses.
Harry Fisher is a scientist and at present he is working on aiship that
will take man to the moon safely and surely. Harry firmly believes it can
he done if people try hard enough. May luck be with Harry!
Marjorie Ehlers is married to Melvin Slone and they are living on a
farm near Edgewood, Illinois. They have had many struggles to keep font
ol' debt -.luring drouth years but nevertheless they are happy and contented.
In Dallas. Texas, Ella May Beccue is teaching music in theiHigh School.
She is well liked having been there since her graduation from the Il. of I.
Elnora Harsch is living at her father's. She does work in the old home
town and takes an interest in the sports that -occur there.
Several times I have received "The Altamont Herald published by El-
wood Hasemeier. I welcome this paper because it is full of the news from
Altamont and the surrounding country. Many of the'names are strange
and the names of the folks I knew get more scarce every day.
And the Democratic senator from the 23rd I'fmnf1'ressional District of Illi-
nois is none other than Hugh Tipsword. How people were fooled when they
said. 'tllugh Tipsword will never amount to anything"!
On a large dairy farm near Elwood. Illinois Margaret Seyferth Heisehmidt
is kept busy seeing that everything is clean. Albert Henry and Margaret
were married shortly after graduation. To this union two boys were born
and they have proved very helpful to their father even when they were just

Illinois is none other than Uleta Hites. It was always f'leta's desire to work
with the voung children and now she is very happy to know that she has

VVell. our class wasn't so had as people thought it would be. Out of the
27 there were no criminals or law-breakers. VVe all have done a good work
even though some of us have nat received world wide recognition. VVe are
confident that there will never be a class that will excel as our great class
BUILD FOR CHARAACTER
NOT FOR FAME
Character is that something of which we are all possessors. A good
character is something that can not be easily attained that is, by mere turn.-
ing of the hand. We are known by our character, and it is through it that
the world points us with its huge brush. Uharacter is that engraving which
we leave cn the minds of other individuals. We alone are responsible for it.
No other person can mold our own lives.
Character is that which has to be built. lt has to be built on solid founda-
tion, so t.hat it can not be swept away by the sands of time. We are adding
to our character each day as we travel slowly down the avenue of life. ln.
building we must not forget that the greatest of men were those who built.
with care, and not in a slip-shod manner in order to become famous. "Build
l'or tame and you become proud and vain."
'l'o become famous you must first possess a good character-a character
that is not stained and blotted with mire, but one that is clean and' nnmarred
by the sears of this life.
To build a good character we must work diligently and not seek fame.
lf we have built a character that will stand the test, eventually we will be-
come famous. But after all what can be achieved of becoming famous, it we
have no good character to back it.'l
Let us then start building with a mighty aim seeking that which cannot
from us-Character. -Martha Schroeder.

JUNIOR GLASS HJ S'1'OR.Y

Four score and sixteen weeks ago, their teachers brought forth upon
this high school a new class, con.ceived in wisdom, and dedicated to the propo-
sition that all classes are created unequal. Now they were engaged in a.
great struggleg testing whether that class, or any class so conceived and so
dedicated eould achieve school supremacy.
They were met in a great review of that struggle. They here dedicate
a portion of this annual as a final record of those who contributed toward
the success of that class. lt is altogether fitting and proper that they do this.
ln the beginning, as Freshmen, their wavering footsteps were guided by
the mighty upperclassmen. Through the paths of knowledge they were con.-
ducted by their sponsor, Miss Stibbins. The following officers were eleeted:
Mae Walker, president: Charles Haker, viee president: Harold Bauer, treas-
urerg and James Russell, secretary.
The social events that year included a weiner roast. a kid party. and a
l'pon re-entering school the upperclassmen discovered that they had
increased mightily in wisdom and self-confidence, since the fall of 1935. The
officers elected were: Jack Wilson, president, Harold Bauer, vice president:
Walter Cooley, secretaryg and Junior Rehwald, treasurer. The Sophomores
gave the Freshmen a Hallowe'en party. Their sponsor. Miss Ftibbins, ae-
cepted a position in lndiana at the end of the first semester so Miss Haefele
was then their sponsor.
Then they were Juniors. School opened September l. 1936 with thirty-
one enrolled in the Junior class. They were amazed when they saw how their
number had decreased but they eould not allow themselves to mourn long
about the loss for they were forced to turn their attention to the great task
remaining before them and work with added zeal. The class eleeted the fol-
lowing officers: Marthagene James. presidentg Junior Rehwald. viee presi-
dent: Virginia Smith, secretary: and Gilbert Becker, treasurer.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
-"PHE sorHoMoaEs lJON"l' KNOW BUT THEY THINK THEY KNOW"
September 1935 the Altamont Uomnninity High School seemed to be in
the nature of a reunion for most of the students who flocked up the broad
steps and into the red brick building. 'l'here were a few shy, uncertain girls
and several bashful, awkward boys hesitating on the walk or loafing in the
halls. The older students were glancing about significantly at the newcomers
in that tantalizing manner that spelled condescension. Sophomores, Juniors,
and Seniors were recognizing Freshmen and remarking. "You can tell them
at a glance."
After they became acquainted with one another they chose the following
officers: President, Harold Matlockg Vice president, Howard llnnng and Sec-
retary-treasurer. Twila Jane Bolin. Miss Ragland was appoin.ted sponsor.
The social. events that year included a weiner roast, a Hallowe 'en party.
and a spring party. H
ln September 1936 the Sophomores did not have to be told where to go
but they were helping the Freshmen by telling them the rules and where to
go. Ever since the fall of 1935 when they entered their high school, career as
Freshmen, they were very active in promoting the interests of the school in
every organization. They felt it had been Well worth their effort to make
this school year as suceexssful as it has been.
The following officers were elected: President, John. Pearceg Vice presi-
dent. Twila Jane Rolinq Secretary, Lois James: Treasurer, Robert Ricknell:

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
THE FRESHMEN DON 'T KNOW AND THEY KNOW THEY DONT KNOW
Just look at the following picture page and you 'll see a picture with the
largest Freshie class that ever came to A. C. H. S. They were not only the
largest class but the prettiest, the brightest, the happiest, the most loyal,
the homeliest, the most popular, and the healthiest class that eiver appeared
at A. O. H. S.
When they had become accustomed to their different school and strange
surroundings, a class meeting was called for the election of officers. The
officers elected were: Eugene Bauer, president, Catherine Koeberlein, vice
president, Nadine Burrow, secretary, and Helen liurkhardt, treasurer. Miss
Hearn was appointed the sponsor.
On October 21, 1936 they had a Weiner roast with the Sophomores in. the
gymnasium on' account of the rain.
The Freshmen were well represented in the activities of the school. Some
of them were i11 the Boys' G-lee Club, Girls' Glee Club. Student Uouueil, Boys'
Quartette, Operetta, Racket Staff, and Orchestra.
The, Freshmen have hoqmcs that they will continue to be the largest class
next year and in. the two succeeding years.

The Assembly of the A. C. H. S. faces the east and the seats are arranged
in nine rows with eighteen seats to a row running east and west. The teacher 's
desk is in the front of the room, the library at the back, and the magizine
rack is in the southwest corner. At the back of the room is a lon.g table where
the D and E students indulge in connversation. and the magazine rack is the
Freshmank haven of Paradise.
The students are arranged in the order of their standing. Starting at the
right we find the Seniors, then the Juniors, Sophomores, and last, but not.

with books ranging from the life of Julius Caesar to the works of William

literature. There are several pictures of famous men along the Freshmen 's

THE ALTOTQ STA EE I
Although they have often groaned just behold the pleasant countenance
of this staff. No group could be found that would have a better spirit of
Many times they were met with discouragement, obstacles, and disap-
pointment. Even this trouble was small compared with their desire to publish
a year book that would bring back memories of their days in A. C. H. S. and
also recall many old acquaintances.
Since the year book is published each of us are proud of it and have
a deep satisfaction because we feel we have done a great work and a task
that our lower classmates will appreciate.
Three years ago thc studen.ts felt that gl school paper would add much
to the school spirit and also create enjoyment.
ln the two preceding years the school paper was typed and then run
off on the ditto machine. This paper was very good but it was found that
after 100 or more copies were run off the words were hard to distinguish.
With this in mind they decided to have it printed and it was decided to
have Mr. Schorsch do the printing.
Our paper. was published every two weeks in thc insidc of the Altamont
News. Every student looked forward to this publication and felt that it was
After we students are old and gray and our eyes fall upon the old, yellow
sheets of tlns paper, many memories will be recalled of the days when we
had a part in school activities.
One of the most important and interesting features of our school is
our library. lt is under the supervision of Miss t'onstance Pierson, who is
assisted by several student librarians. The school library ls a complete source
of knowledge, as well as it companion to the students an.d teachers. Many
books have been added to our list during the past term which arc highly
appreciated by everyone.
For knowledge of different subjects, our librarians can furnish you with
the following sources of which our library consists: Fiction hooks, Science,
Mathematics, Physics, Health Hygiene, Zoology, Foods, Geography, Music,

magazines, and Encyclopedias. These different divisions can be used for ref-
erence. evereyday practical reading. and enjoyment. as well as being bene-
ficial to the students.
Our library always looks nice and is always given proper care. It is
highly prized by the entire Community.

BY EDGAR A. GUEST
lly the troubles y'ou have met
By the griefs which you have borne,
By the heartache and regret,
And the bleeding from the thorn,
On the cruel forge of strife
You shall shape a lovelier life.
Souls are made by hammer blows
And the batterings of fate,
He who on.lv nleasure knows
Never can be truly great,
All our faith, and all our pride
Must be very often tried.
Youth has beauty of its own,
Smiles make lovely any face.
But the heart which much has known
Has a richer touch of grace,
Out of trial, out of grief
Glows the splendor of belief.
On the anvil of the years
Must our characters be wrought,
By our heartaches and our tears
, We are won to gentler thought,
Out of suffering We .find '
The true glory of mankind.

O R C IIESTRA
This year the orchastra was organized under the direction of our new
music instructor, Miss Mary l.ouise Mct'ord. We started out with an alto-
gether different view toward music than we had had in. our previous years.
At our first rehearsal we had a number of set rules presented before the
organization whicl1 we were to obey and practice during '36 and '2l7.
The officers which were chosen for 1936-37 were President, Doris Frazer,
Vice President, Evelyn lloarq Sec.-Treas., Uatherine 'Koeberleinq Head Li-
brarian, Virginia Smith, Assistant Ilibrarian, Betty Stiee: Reporter, Virginia
Zachag Business Manager, Miriam Ehlers.
The orchestra has been quite an educational feature in our high school
for quite a n.umber of years. They have appeared at many entertainments,
and they gave a spring concert on May 14th.
GIRLS' AND BOYS' GIJEIC ULUB
This group of young people were interested in developing their voices
an.d hope to do this through the training received in the glee clubs which
were under the direction of Miss McCord.
During the year they found that by music many different words could
be expressed--gay, sorrow, despair, hope, faith. Throughout the year these
groups have appeared in public. For tl1e operetta and also for the commence-
ment exercises, Miss McCord selected students from these organizations
The officers of the Boys' Glee Club are: President, Jerome Seltzer:
Secretary-Treasurer, Ernest Schorsch Jr.g Librarian, Robert Bicknellg Assis-
tant Librarian. Fred Hasemeierg Reporter, Eugene Bauer.
The officers for the First Girls' tllee t'lub are: President, Virginia Smith:
Vice-President, Twila Jane Boling Secretary-Treasurer. Helen Rockwell:
Pianist, Mariam Ehlers.
From the Second Girls' Glee Club we have the following officers:
President, Martha Schroederg Vice-President, Helen Zinnnerniang Secretary-
Treasurer, Nadine Iinrrowg Pianist. Helen Burkhardt.
As the school year ends, each individual feels that he has.accomplislled
a worthwhile task and benefited in a small way from the instruction given
by Miss Mcf'ord.
Every student who has studied music knows it is easy to sing with a
group but it is very difficult to carry an independent part unless one has
natural talent. However we have four boys who have been able to do both
of these thin.gs.
These boys have tried, to do their bsst in entertaining and bringing en-
joyment and we feel that they have succeeded. When life is almost over,
they will recall these pleasant days when they worked together.
The members of the quartette are: Eugene Bauer, first tenorg Linder
Devore, second tenorg Jerome Seltzer, first bassg and Kenneth Schroeder,

And underneath the cloud, or in it, raged
A furious battle, and men yelled, and swords
Shocked upon swords and shields. A prince's banner
VVavered, then staggered backward, hemmed by foes.
A craven hung along the hattle's edge,
And thought, "Had I a sword of keener steel-
That blue blade that the kinf.:'s Son bears,-but this
Blunt thing-l" he snapt, and flung it from his hand,
And lowering crept away and left the field.
Then came the kingr's son, wounded, sore hestead,
And weaponless, and saw the broken sword, , ,.

And ran and snatched it, and with battle-shout ' A
Lifted afresh he hewed his enemy down, " 3.

The Altamont Community High School major sport activity is basket-
ball. lt has been the drawing ticket in sports for ma11y years, and will
probably continue so in the future. Mr. Haag, who has been coaching the
high school sports for the past two years, was eagerly awaiting the present
First practice was called about two weeks before the first game of the
season, and the students 'showed their interest in the game, by having nearly
fifty students out for the first night of practice. The squad was cut down
after one week of practice to fifteen members. The local fans expected
much from this years' high school team as t'our lettermen would return
from last years' strong squad, to repeat their skill this season. The four
lettermen around which coach would build up his team were: Captain L.
Devore. VVarren Dunn. Alvin Ferchow, and Melvin Stone. These four play-
ers l1ad played in many basketball games and know the technique from start
to finish. Other players who made a good showing in the previous year, and'
would be back on the squad again are: Howard Dunn, John Pearce, Oscar
Schroeder, and VValter Cooley. A hopeful player from Beecher City, Harold
Zander, would be out 'this Year to do his best to make the high school team.
After two weeks of practice and severe training, the team was ready
to face the outcome of their first game on November 7. This first game
presented a double header in which two differenft high school teams would
seek victory against the local high school team. The high school reserves
defeated Edgewood high school and the first team defeated Mulberry Grove
Many fans thought that 'the team just couldn't be beaten, but they were
given their first defeat by Greenup on November 10, by the score of 221 to 10.
Our boys failed to take advantage of their free throws and, therefore. an-
nexed their first defeat to their record for the year.
A successful journey was made to Mulberry Grove on an unlucky day.
Friday 13 of November, with a victory of 26 to 11. Ferchow realized l.is
position as center, and made a majority of the points to complete the victory.
The local high school team was to play the first conference game with
Uowdeu on November 19, which resulted in a victory for the t'owdeu boys.
Tl1e score was 18 to 22. The team 's fast break failed to connect and Cowden
was capable of holding a small lead throughout the game.
The Alumni lost a close and exciting game to the Varsity on November
25, by the score of 31 to 30. Alvin Ferchow, and tlapttain Dcvore were largely
responsible for the scoring with 23 points between the two players.
On December 1. the home team lost a hard-fought game to Kinmundy.
with the score reading 2-l to 27. Kinmundy has a tall and fast team and
these advantages somtimes account for the ending decision.
High School lost another close game to Neoga. December 4. by the score
of 22 to 25. This game was their second conference defeat in as many games.
Their third conference game with Stewardson, on December 0, resulted in
their first victory in the standings. Altamont won this game from Steward-
son. 28 to 25 in one overtime.
On December 12, the local team lost to the strong Centralia team, 21 to
43 and thus our team was onlv plaving 5f'0 nercent basketball as the Don-
ference Tournament drew near. Coach Haag changed the starting lineup
after this game. by moving Dunn to the forward position with Devore. and
these two forwards soev- created a combination that was hard to surpass.
After the change. the bovs won 10 games in succession. and then lost again
to the s-eutherners from Centralir. The te-un eoinpleted its scheduled games
by winning the last five an.d set a record of winning sixteen out of seventeen
--'-- ---- .---
The annual National Trail Conference tournament was held at Browns-
town, December 17, 18, and 19. In this tournament, Altamont was successful
in defending their championship gained in the tournament of 'the previous
year, and again took first. place honors by winning out in. the finals against
Neoga 33 to 30. Our basketball team won the tournament by defea'ting St.
Elmo, Vowden, and Neoga in that order. Altamont fans saw the high school
playing their best in the tournament and extended many congratulations.
The Illinois High School District Tournament was held at Altamont on
Feln-nary 25, 26, and 27. Teams who participated :it the district were: Shum-
way, llieterieh, Watson, Beecher City, Montrose, Edgefwood, Mason, Bible
Grove, and Sigel. Mason defeated Montrose 19 to 15 in the finals on Satur-
day night, to win the district. These two teams took part in. the Regional
at Effingham, March 4, 5, and 6. Mason played Teutopolis and Montrose
Effingham won the Regional Tournament by defeating Teutopolis 23 to
18. Altamont defeated Mon.trose 62 to 21 in the first round of the tourney.
but lost out in the semifinals to Effingham by the score of 22 to 31.
INTRA-MVR-AL BASKET BALL

mural basket ball. Seven teams were organized from the list of students
interested, including six players on each team. During the season each
team played one game with the other and a standing of the results were kept.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB
This organization which we call our Dramatic Club has been ot' vital
interest to students for the past several years. This club is under the very
capable leadership of Miss Constance Pierson and with her as our directress
we accomplished many worth while things during the year.
The elub met as usual in Se1.tc'mber and elected the following officers:
President, Linder Devoreg Vice-President, Margaret Syferthg Secretary,
Helen Roekwellg Trasurer, Harold Zander: Club Reporter, Mary Catherine
Yondenbosch. The following people were chosen for the program committee:
Earl Tappendorf, Helen Rockwell. Elwood Hasemeier and Martha Schroeder
for the entire year.
The purpose of this club is to prepare interested students for publie
speaking, dranlatical gestures, eostuming. acting and make-up. lt is educa-
tional as well as valuably interesting. lt offers many opportunities to the
student who will grasp them.
One of its greatest and most memorable aeeomplislunents was the Dra-
matic Club play which was presented during the last week of school.
The Senior Class of 1937 and their capable sponsor, Miss t'onstan.ce
Pierson, organized a club known as the Book f'lub. The purpose of this
club was to give the students a greater opportunity to read books. A book
was assigned to be read and reported on at each meeting. Toward' the close
of the year two and three books were reported on at each meeting in order
to finish the required list. This club took the place of reading two novels
a week for a period of six Weeks.
Miss Pierson's l1o111e was agreed upon as a meeting place and seven
o'elock was chosen as the time. When the question arose as to how often
we should meet, it was decided that one meetin.g 3 month would be sufficent.
After the Senior Ulass had all arrived, the reports oft the evening were given
and then comments and opinions followed. These book clubs have proved
to be a social event as well as an occasion at which each person. may express
NVQ- believe this club was very profitable and hope the Seniors of the
"Class of 'RST will follow our plan.
GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
livery girl interested in Athletics joined this organization. Many bene-
fits were received from this, but the greatest was the promotion of health
by hikes and various out door sports.
Early in the fall the girls took hikes. On each hike they would go a
little farther than they had gone on the previous one. Many times the
weather prevented the hikes and as a result they did not get to go as
far as they had planned at the first of the year.
On May 6 they entertained the basketball boys, cheer leaders and the
managers to a pienic at Young's Grove.
They have enjoyed the good times they had while working and hiking
together and feel the time given to the Girls' Athletic Association was

With the aid of our most learned instructor, RV. B. Casey, the principal
of A. l'. ll. S.. we have procured and hope to apply many of the rudiments
of the great field of Physics.
The first semester we delved into the secrets of machines, heat and
en.erg'jr and liquids. ln the study of machines we started with the simple
lever and developed into many more intricate aids to the human strength.
Through the applying of heat and energy to levers, we have an engine capable
of producing much horse power. The steam engin.e is a good example of
this. Through the use of the firebox, we have heat. the eneregy of which is
put in the water, producing steam. this works the lever which turns the wheel
that moves the engine and so, it is very much, like the house that Jack built.
We may think that an engine of this kind, while it seetmks very etomplicated
to the layman, is very simple to anyone who wishes to study 3 few of the
elementary facts. We learned that heat may be transferred in many different
ways: and how to prevent the transferring of heat when we need to. It is
transit rred by convection.. conduction and radiation. There were luany other
minor points such as this the first. semester.
The second semester was taken up with electrical energy and ways and
means of measuring it, using it, and producing it. We also had a touch of
sound waves, through the atmosphere and through more solid matter.
In our study of electricity we began with the Leyden jar, a simple
storage battery and worked up to electric motors and multicellcd batteries.
We think everyone profits from this course, even though students are
given the impression that it is a very difficult and complicated course.
I VOMM ERUI A li SUBJ ECTS
Several years ago the need for a Commercial Department was seen so
typing and shorthand courses were offered in addition to bookkeeping which
had previously been taught. Mr. Haag has taught these subjects during the
past three years.
From these subjects we learned cooperation and also that accuracy out-
weighs speed in any line.
Commercial students participated in many contests from which they de-
rived pleasure. experince and made new acquaintances.
Although most of us may never use these Subjects as a means of a. living
we will have something to depend upon should we be in need of financial
On Saturday, Feb. 27, the following studentw from the Altamont Uom-
munity High Sehool t"ommereial Classes went to Shelbyville to the Invitation-
al l'ontest: Juniors-Doris Mery. Virginia Smith, Florence Koberlein, Martha-
gene James, and Junior Rehwaldg and Seniors-Doris Frazer. Helen Rockwell.
Marv Uatharine Vondenbosch. Rosalie Zimmerman, Linder Devore, Earl Tap-
pendorf and Harold Zanders. .Of the 20 schools represented Altamont took
first place. They won a beautiful cup and several of the students received
ribbons for individual honors.
Thev returned home, proud of the honor we had won for Altamont and
determined to win. at the District Fontest, to he held in two weeks. This con-
test was held at Vandalia. The Same group of students went. Here, again, we
won first place. The school received a large certificate and the students re-
ceived small certifieates as individual honors.

After two more weeks of practice in Typing and Shorthand, the
students who won first or second place at Yandalia were taken to Decatur.
Here, at the Sectional, Contest, we met with much competition. Although, we
didn 't take first place, we did make a good showing. Mr. Haag, our Commercial
Teacher, said he wished we could have taken first place but was proud of t.he
record we did make.
U The Commercial students wish to thank Mr. Haag for the excellent train-

MY COMMENTS ON A. C. H. S.
Last fall l entered the A. C. H. S. as green as a Freshman, only in
reality a Senior. My mind was in a whirl. What had this school to offer that
I had previously never had? Foods, Typewriting, Shorthand, and dozens of
other features that mean so much to the advanced student.
The pupils and faculty were extremely kind and considerate. Along with
all of its advantages, Altamont makes you feel at home-as if you belonged
to the "gang," You are allowed to join any of the activities you desire. Two
of the best features of the school are the publication of the Altois and the
My only regret is that I didn't become a member of your happy gang
sooner. I see now the many opportunities I have missed by attemling a small-
er school. Altamont has taught me the art of getting along with other peo-
ple and to enjoy life to its fullest extent by always being in a good humor.
1t's the School that teaches you everything.

" FOODS CENTENNIAII'
During the summer eaeh girl is assigned a project to aeeomplish by the

doing. All of the projeets are under the supervision of Miss Haefele.
Vl'e entered a contest which was sponsored by the Kraft Cheese Fo. In
this eontest we were given a list of supplies available and from this list
