Our drawings are the bestg our athletics the greatest, and our jokes the funniest. We have learned some from other annuals and now and then have had an idea of our own. We are just as certain as you are that you could have done better with your eyes closed, and you have our sincere sympathy because of the fact that the opportunity for so doing was not presented to you. We ask but one thing. If any slam herein found hurts, remember that a famous man said, "If the cap fits, wear it." 11 ALTON HIGH SCHOOL 12 5 ' 2 : 3 1 ' Z 2 5 'Q 3 :'- 5 5'-.E-. : : QE E 2 E .i---- :I -D g 5 'ig E.

For, as all logical thinkers had long ago concluded, how could such a class as this meet any other end? The end came in a peaceful slumber, entirely characteristic of their entire career. For nearly six years most of them had been permitted to pass their time at the Alton High School, but just as a policeman rudely awakens a peacefully slumbering Weary Willie, so Principal Richardson was at last compelled to awaken this class to the fact that they must do something. It appears that they perceived that the only thing possible for them to do was to effect their decease. So here we pay our respects and place a few laurels on their last resting place.

"Familiarity breeds contempt." It is the custom that the Seniors set the example for the other classes, but We are glad to state that the Juniors of '13-'14 follow no such example, as that would mean destruction to the glorious old High. Do not think, Seniors, that we will sympathize with you on your glaring shortcomings, but, on the con- trary, we will hold them forth to the gaze of all, so that your end may not be the lot of any other class. Look further in this book, Seniors, but only at your own peril! 28 in X - . xg.. , 'xii V IW X7.NlfS3Nxk.'x My wkQ,w ' "Ja . V N' 1"' Iv: xx-'19, 1- awww! ,.

Fitted in every way with material for accomplishing great things, all they had to do was to find the great things to accomplish. Great athletes such as Taylor, Busse, Smith, Perrin, Harford, Wightman, Walker, Bradshaw, Hyatt and Shine won the class eternal glory on manya gory field. Great orators such as Shine, Taylor and Haley made the class of 1912-'13 immortal in the halls of forensic fame. Literary geniuses represented the class on famous editorial staffs. Such names as Randolph, Dorman, Smith and May can never be forgotten. McKenny and Juttemeyer rival Michael Angelo in their wondrous skill of portrayal. What yet there is to tell of this glorious class is so much that it would exhaust the ink of the honored writer. But we will leave a little more to tell on that day when they shall cease to honor these walls with their presence. tri "Mammals Hopeful."-"S1sri2R" J UTTEMEYER. 44 YW VX June Class of 1913.

Freshmen, you have long enough been abused, in fact you have been made the victim of every stale joke that has ever been printed! Brilliant satirists have made you babies with abnormally little sense, have lost you in the hallsg have had you holding your hands in the air until further con- tinuation of the operation would have caused said members to become fixed in that positiong have had you fleeing or cowering at the approach of every upper classman for so long that a credulous public has begun to to believe such libel and your character has been sadly damaged. But since this editorial staff contains neither an Ananias nor a satirist, we will neither leave you shivering in the hall nor holding your hand in space but will for once tell the public the truth. Therefore be it known unto the general public: The Alton High School Freshmen are as learned as the most learned could desire, in fact we very much doubt whether there is one member of the class who cannot say "He learnt me this" with as much ease as your- self. They lind their way about perfectly, being neither blind nor scared to deathg on the contrary their insatiable curiosity leads them to even pry open the door of the janitor's closet in search of some place they should not go, not being so ignorant as not to know that raising one's hand necessitates the raising of the arm likewise, thus endangering the making of a rent in the fabric used in the construction of the sleeve or adjoining portionsg they never raise their hands but merely open their mouths and articulate very clearly and distinctly. They flee at the approach of no one, not even Mr. Lorch, but even go so far as to request information of that gentlemen on the subject of a curled mustache. They are not Lilliputians, but are, on the average, of a goodly stature. General public, upper classmen: Make fun of our Freshmen no longer. Respect that famous saying, "You've gotta quit kickin' my dawg aroun'." "If to her share some female errors fall, Look on her face and y0u'1I forget them all." -LUCIA TAYLOR. 80 'LNEIWLHVJEICI 'SNINIVHLL TVHNVW Recognition Honors.

Hope, Weber and Neff left school while we lost J. Heagler to Western. Smith, Busse, Fisher, Taylor and Perrin, besides Captain Zerwekh and Hyatt, who did not have a chance to earn his letter, but who had done good workin the latter part of the 1910 season, were there. This left five positions Vacant. Of the new candidates were begenhardt, Alexan- der, from Flat River, Mo., Henry, who entered school from Upper Alton, Dodge, a member of the Upper Alton Department, and last but far from least Wood, who decided to play football. So that after all, the prospects were better than were first expected. On October 1st we met East St. Louis there. The boys fought desperately but the breaks went against them and this, coupled with insufficient practice, gave us the little end of the score when the whistle blew-6 to 2. Instead of discouraging the team, this defeat gave them the needed impetus and the next week they worked harder than ever. Being unable to get a game for the 7th, Captain Zerwekh sent the team in against Shurtleffs second for the 10th to keep the team from going stale. They were no match for us, and we ran through them with little or no trouble. It was our first chance to try our fakes and trick plays and it also proved that the team had struck its pace, as was shown by the score-15 to 0. . tm 'im . ' 86 -. 'iinquihda-nn1in-n-J. -4-- The next game, October 14th, was with the Troy Giants at Troy. Here, with- out a doubt, the teailn showed what team work, what practice, and above all what fighting spirit could do. Playing against a team composed of four 'professionals and the rest miners, men of gigantic strength and weight, and playing before a crowd which waited eagerly for a chance to break up the game with a fight, the boys fought desperately, fought brilliantly, carried the ball to the enemy's five- yard line, where the opponents secondary defense held like a stone wall, and slowly but surely forced them back down the field. How the score ended a tie no one, not even the team, could tell. Nevertheless it proved we had a team which deserved our best support. On Wednesday, October 25, we again met Shurtleff. Although the game was scheduled with the second team, Shurtleff, wishing to wipe out their defeat, brought a team composed almost entirely of first team subs, but we didn't greatly exert ourselves and had the big end of the score-6 to O. Saturday of the same week we walked all over Edwardsville, tried every play we had, tried some we didn't have and took them into camp, 34 to 0. , . I ... - M V 87 But a haughty spirit goethbefore a fall. Saturday, Nov. 4th, we were dis- graced for the first and only time during the season of 1911. We journeyed to Carrollton minus Henry, Alexander and Degenhardt-three valuable men-but we should have beaten them easily but for over-confidence, and even after they scored the first time, our play lacked that desperate gameness, that never-quit spirit which had characterized them all through the season. It was one of those inex- plainable offdays which come unexpectedly upon every team. The next week, Nov. 11th, we tasted of that revenge for which we had waited so long. East St. Louis was rudely awakened from the superior feeling which they had carried ever since the first of the season. With fast, aggressive play, mag- nificent fighting spirit, Perrin tore away with a forward pass and scored in the first three minutes of play. When it was all over we had 15, East St. Louis, O. Just for a little excursion to break the monotony and incidentally to "show" Edwardsville, we chartered a special car the next Saturday, the 18th, and with fifty loyal rooters we traveled over to that little burg. When we got back, delight- - - W .Q ALUMNI FOOTBALL TEAM. 88 .Wm 1.i. . A , . --,.,.,:iQ.a----I-, -N ---A I ed with the outing, also better acquainted with the school yells, we were incident- ally able to relate to our friends that the score was 31 to 0 in our favor. V Turkey day, the first annual game between the Alumni and Alton High School was played. A thaw the night before left the field a sea of mud and water. The Alumni, a team made up of the stars of Alton's past star teams-a team which contained names dear to every true Alton rooter-entered the game, con- fident of winning. The game was desperately contested. The condition of the field made open play, our strongest asset, an impossibility. although it also ham- pered the use of the Alumni weight. In the third quarter Henry dashed through the line and went over for a touchdown. But by far the most spectacular play was Henry's breaking up of the inter- ference made by two men, and stopping Cuthbertson who had a clear field ahead of him. When the game was over it was almost impossible to distinguish one player from another, because of the mud with which they were covered. But the team was satisfied, the score being 5-0 in our favor. Thus ended the season of 1911 which, although some may dispute us, we believe was the most successful in the history of the school. Although the team of 1905 made a somewhat better showing in a smaller number of games, football is now played under such very different conditions that that team could not be classed above the team of 1911. 12 if wllu ELSE BUT IAI-Till! lm Q ESE-. m -a , - - YK I ,QQ ig., M Y Q 2 - f Jfffmll ,4 g wg. 1 V ?,-171 I iv 1- IQ Gr. c': "3 "T W-A W' , .

"My mind my kingdom is."-Miss FERGUSON. , 91 Captain Zerwekh, "P. Z. was the first captain to have entire charge of the Alton High school team, and he filled his position to a degree far exceeding the hopes of the most sanguine. "P. Z." found him- self at the beginning of the season of 1910 when he was placed at end. In this position he captured forward passes time after time for gains which were responsible for many a touchdown and many a victory. During 1911, as captain, he played left half. At this position, his end runs were spectacular. But most notable of all was his splendid handling of the team. Without a doubt his splendid general- ship made the team of 1911 what it was: the best in the history of Alton High School football. "Punk," the Idol of Alton High School Football, Basketball, and Baseball fans, has undoubtedly deserved all of the praise that has been given him. The lightest and smallest man on the team, his brain work makes him the greatest forward going. His swift, unerring tackling stops plays that start around the right. Football is to him as easy as living is to us. In fact he plays football just as he plays basketball and baseball: that is, without a peer. Great as has been his work this year, un- doubtedly greater will be his work next year as leader. For 1912 we predict a peerless team with the peerless leader. "A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men."-MR Mrzrz 92 Taylor started the game in 1910 under trying conditions. The dissensions, which nearly broke up the team, made a new quarter necessary. "Nuts", without any previous experience and with but a short time to practice, went in behind a reconstructed team and averted the threatening disaster. In 1911 his handling of punts, his great forward passes, and above all, his headwork dur- ing the games, combined with Captain Zerwekh's work before the games, made the team of 1911 the great and perfect team that it was. Taylor's piloting of the team through the stiffest battles was truly marvelous and without a prece- dent in the history of Alton High School. D0 you know why Upper Alton was an- nexed to Alton? There were just two important r e a s o n s. l 1 l J "My man's One was, that Tom Henry might play football for A. H.S. When "P.Zf' brought his material together in the fall of 1911, the place which needed filling the most was the middle position, in the back field. Did he find a fullback! No one who saw Tom puncture the East St. Louis, Edwardsville and Shurtleff lines like ag Mauser bullet going through a lace handkerchief would ask a question like that. He had starred for Pie Town, but with the team mates he had here, he compared with the other fullbacks seen around here the last few moons, like a forty-eight candle power Tungsten light compared with a tallow candle. Watch Henry in 1912. as true as steel."-HELEN DIDLAKE. 93 Now I'll tell you the second reason why Upper Alton was annexed to Alton. It was that Dodge could play with A. H. S. Dodge is a Freshman of the Upper Alton Department and he surely is a credit to Upper Alton. First he tried center, but his size never fitted him for the line, so he dis- covered that the position for which he was de- signed was right half. The way he circled the ends and smashed through the line after his big running mate, Tom, and especially the way, when on the defensive, in which he bowled over men that out-weighed him forty pounds, made him a live wire on the 1911 team. Dodge has three more years. With his added ex- perience and weight, he will be the back- bone for several com- ing teams. Fischer is one of those big, solid men so necessary to foot- ball. His beef and muscle won him a place in the 1910 team in spite of his total lack of experience. But he overcame his greenness and made good with a vengeance. In 1911 he, like all other great athletes, after wandering around, found his place. Center was invented for men just like "Susie," or else men' just like "Susie" were invented for center. "Susie" could not only handle that little pigskin oval just right, particularly when Taylor called a punt, but at the same time he could hold out the line, or, when on the defense, he could break through be- fore the other side could get a play started. "The Eagle sufers little birds to szng Miss Jomss 94 The heaviest man on the team, "Degie," held them out like a rock wall. Always on the job, he made it impossible for an opposing team to gain on line bucks through the left side of the line. When Taylor called a quarter back buck through the left, he merely secreted himself behind Degie's ample dimensions and never stopped till somebody came around from behind and grabbed him. When there was about five yards to go for a touchdown on the third down, Taylor called "left guard back" and the rooters began yelling for the touchdown, because they knew it would come. "Degie" has two years yet, and with his ever in- creasing s p e e d, he ought to make a great full back. And it always did come. Busse got his "A" for the sea- son of 1910, but nobody knew then what stuff there was in him. But in 1911 "they were shown amply and suf ficiently. A physical giant, he stopped those line smashes all right, and when Alton sent a buck through on the right, it wasn't Busse's fault if it didn't go there. He made holes in the other line that the men carrying the ball would either have to be blind or scared to death, to miss. Beside being a great guard it may be said of Busse, that if they had all been Busses, there would have been no dis- putes or dissensions among the players on the teams of 1910 and 1911, a rare and a great tribute to any player. "Better to smoke here than smoke hereafter"-RALPH SMITH. 95 l tackle was needed. more men like "Alex," We'll be glad to bor- row them. "Smithy" didn't know what he could do till he tried. A1- though this isn't very strange, when Smithy 1 tried something hap- pened. He came out was cinched after the first game. But good as he was in 1910, in 1911 he developed into the best tackle that ever played for Ruby Red and Silver Gray. The fastest man on the team, he could break up plays, and on the defense, his side was never broken throughg while if a man got loose, "Smithy" could get him no matter how great the other fellow's speed. But "Smithy's" greatest worth was shown when we needed forty yards real bad. All that was necessary was to call tackle around, and the only trouble was George didn't always stop at forty, but pretty often went on through for the touchdown. first in 1910, and his place "Sweep on, ye fat and greasy citizens."-ILLINI. 96 "Alex" entered Alton High at the beginning of last season. With his previous experience on the Flat River CMissouriD team, he was immedi- ately seen to be a find. He was first tried at half, because of his great speed, but because of the fact that he lived out of town, which made it impossible for him to come to practice but seldom, he could not be used at half. He was next tried at end, but it was then discovered that a right "Alex" was placed there and if ever a man played a great defensive game at tackle, "Alex" did it. If Flat River has any "Court" began his football career late in the season of 1910. But, by hard practice, he amply demonstrated to the coach that he was ready for use, and won his letter playing at left half in the closing games of the season. Coming out early in 1911, Perrin got his chance to show what was in himf So great was his defensive work that, before the season was very old, Alton rooters didn't worry when the opponents started a play around "Court's" end, for they were indeed fortu- nate if they got the ball up to the line of scrimmage. A hard working man and always in condition, he is always to be depended on, and Alton's fol- lowers expect him to be one of the greatest men of the team next fall. Hyatt held the difficult position on the 1911 team of being ready to fill any position without any notice. Hyatt practiced faith- fully and trained conscientiously, and, if he had not been handicapped by his lightness, he would most undoubtedly have pushed some one for a position. But in the games in which he participated, he showed the stuff that he was made of. Hyatt earned his "A" just as much as any that played, although he didn't get a chance to show his ability just as often as the others. It's a shame to let "Tate" graduate.

The first step was the election of Elliott Taylor, captain, and it afterward proved to be the wisest step that any team has ever taken. After hard practice, Captain Taylor took the team to Bunker Hill, Decem- ber 31st. Here the opening game of the season with Bunker Hill Military Academy was won by the score of 16 to 14. Saturday, the 30th, Alton met Blackburn University at Blackburn. In the first half Alton was badly bothered by the strange fioor, and apparently lost their heads, the score at the end of the first half being 15 to 6 in Blackburn's favor, but in the second half the team got started, used some team work, scored 15 points, while the opponents could score only 1, but lost by a hair's breadth, 22 to 21. Considering the fact that Alton was playing a college team and in a strange gym. the result was indeed a surprise, and proved that we had a team far above the ordinary. The next week, the 6th, Alton played its first game at home and won from Christian Brothers' College second team by the score of 35 to 15. January 13th Alton went to Edwardsville minus Wood and Henry, and, play- ing with two substitutes, lost to the Crescent Athletic Club, 38 to 30. January 26th will undoubtedly go down in the basket ball calendar of every loyal Alton rooter as a red letter day. Alton had now most undoubtedly hit its pace, and, before a crowd that packed the Y. M. C. A. balcony to its capacity, met Blackburn University. With a 22-21 defeat to wipe out and a crowd that cheered the team in a way that made Alton believe that the much-talked-of school spirit had awakened from its sleep, the team played a magnificent game. It was "A beast that wants discourse of reason."-AEOLA HYA1'r. 99 i truly a game that kept the crowd on its feet. Nearly the entire game one or other of the teams led by 1 point. Each basket brought either hope or despair. Finally with not half a minute to play, the score stood 45-45. But with a last desperate effort Alton got the ball in the basket and won 47-45. Winning from a university was going some for A. H. S. Tuesday, the 26th, Alton showed Edwardsville that we were not only their superiors in football but also in basket ball. The team had no trouble in walking all over them. The final score was 46 to 21. February the 9th, the team journeyed to Jacksonville and met Jacksonville High School before an immense crowd. The gym. was evidently built for seating capacity, not for a basket ball court, as even the baskets were not the regulation size and it was impossible for the team to hit the basket. Added to this, the team had one of those unexplainable off days and lost by the score of 25 to 8. The next week the team brought the Crescent Athletic Club to Alton and although the first half was desperately contested, in the second half they tasted of revenge, the score being 35 to 24, favor of Alton. Thursday, February the 22d, Alton High School, for the first time in the his- tory of the school, entered the Southern Illinois Basket Ball Tournament which was held this year at Centralia, In this tournament are usually represented the pick of the Southern Illinois teams. Schools which do not have a football season and who begin basket ball practice in September, playing from twenty to thirty games a year, are represented in this organization. The contesting teams were: Granite City, Centralia, Mount Vernon, Duquoin, Benton, Robinson, Eldorado and Alton. Friday, Alton met. Centralia, which had previously defeated every team of Southern Illinois, and, playing on a strange gym. and before an immense crowd, Alton completely lost their heads and lost by the overwhelming score of 60 to 16. Friday night Alton met Eldorado and, since a defeat meant elimination, Alton hit their old pace and showed the crowd what they could do. By splendid team work they won easily 41 to 11. Saturday morning Alton played Benton. The Benton team was confident of victory and, at the end of the first half, led 19 to 13. But in the second half Alton came back and, quoting the Centralia Sentinel, "with only live minutes to play, the game was practically won by Wood, the smallest man on the team. This plucky lad, always on the go, rushed in from his position as guard and threw two successive field goals. Benton, try as they might, could not overcome this lad and lost by four points, the score being 33 to 29 in favor of Alton." N "I am not in the roll of common men."-MR. BIRD. 100 Saturday night Alton met Mt. Vernon to decide second place. "The Alton High School team defeated Mt. Vernon by a score of 25 to 20. It was quite a sur- prise, as it was not generally believed Alton would defeat Mt. Vernon. The latter team has been showing considerable strength, but in the last few games the Alton boys have displayed considerable playing ability and, although very small, seem to withstand the onslaught of the heaviest teams. The games, although quite close at times, always saw Alton in the lead. The first half ended with the score of 16 to 9, favor of Alton. Mt. Vernon took a brace in the second half and the game ended 25 to 20, favor of Alton." The standing of the teams at the close of the tournament was: Games played. Won. Lost. 1.

Granite City played the easier teams first and defeated Centralia when they were in a crippled condition. Had Alton met Centralia after defeating some of the easier teams instead of the first game, the result would un- doubtedly have been different. Also comparing the number of games played, Granite had played 27 games before coming to Centralia, and Centralia 30 before entering the tournament, while Alton had played but 8. The whole team deserves great credit, but too much praise cannot be given to Captain Taylor who had entire charge of the team during the season. It is a difficult position for a captain to hold when he must coach his team and take the entire responsibility, especially when playing away from home, as on the Centralia trip. Taylor took hold of a bunch of new players, no two of which had ever played together before, and with- out any assistance, whipped them into one of Alton's greatest basket ball teams. Second place in the Southern Illinois Basket Ball Tournament is a great achieve- ment for Alton High. But one team in the history of the school can be compared with the 1912 team. The team was characterized all the season by splendid team work and a desperate fighting spirit which is always found in a well managed team. The basket ball season of 1912 is a proof of the fact that this year has and will have been the greatest in the history of the school.

Captain Taylor.-"Nuts" had entire charge of the 1912 Basketball team. He coached it and managed it on the field. He devised the plays and put them into execution and he scored more points than any other man on the team. "Nuts" is most undoubtedly the greatest leader that ever captained a basketball team for Ruby Red and Silver Gray. Manager Wood.-"Shorty" Wood is truly a marvel. Guarding men who outweighed him 40 pounds, playing the floor with lightning speed, dashing up from guard and winning games by his spectacular field goals, Wood was the sensation of every game in which he played. Hoppe.-"Hop" played the basket and he played it sure. When Busse or Wood shot the ball up the field, Hoppe was always under the basket to drop it in. A sure shot and heady, Hoppe won many a game for A. H. S. Harford. -Lyle didn't come out until the day before the team was to leave for Centralia, and it had been found necessary to get a new center. Big and fast, Harford played a great defensive and offensive game. Few men could get the jumps on Lyle, and although he had no previous practice, he played a wonderful game at Centralia. Busse.-"Splish," the biggest man on the team, was the fellow that Taylor placed to guard the best opposing forward and never once was he shown up. No matter how the game was going Busse was guarding the basket and while Wood was playing running guard, Busse could guard his own man and another too. ' Cresswell, Captain elect-Although "Bob," because of his inex- perience, got to take part in but 12 games, he never missed practice, always travelled with the team and was always ready when needed. That he demonstrated his worth is shown by the fact that the team unanimously chose him Captain for 1913. "I have a very unhappy brain for thinking."-PHYLLIS Gksxms. 104 f, i w . .

Pf J, X H A J The baseball season of 1912 was not as successful as the football and basket- ball seasons had been, but undoubtedly would have been far more successful than it was if any support whatever had been given to the team, which worked just as hard and deserved support just as much as the other teams. The material was above the average. Captain Wood alone assured a fighting and a well managed team. Wight- man is undoubtedly a clever receiver, while Howard is the best slab artist seen around here for several seasons. Walker and Degenhardt also showed that they possessed the stuff, although they lacked Howard's control. Shine, Hoefert, Hoppe and Taylor played a good fielding game. Captain Wood's work requires no com- ment, except that he is unsurpassed at short. Henry Beiser and Poole played well in the outfield. The hitting strength of the team was centered in Hoefert, Wood and Henry, whose stick work helped greatly. The first game at Belleville, April 6, was won by the score of 14 to 10 and seemed to promise a very successful season. But it was impossible for Manager Hyatt to get the team games away from here, without promising a return game. This was proven impossible by the Belleville game at Alton, May 4th, as the sup- port was absolutely "nil". Therefore the score of 17 to 12 against Alton was not entirely the fault of the team, which was undoubtedly off its usual form, but was chiefly the fault of the support. It was thought best by the management not to attempt any more games, so the team, which contained the material for a great baseball team, was disbanded with the record of one game won and one game lost.

Although when this is read, the second annual meet of the Alton District Inter- Scholastic Conference will be history, and we' hope glorious history, we can not but say a word as to the outlook. The Inter-Class meet which took place May 2-3 resulted in a victory for the Seniors. The result was: Seniors 45, Juniors 413 Sophmores 323 Freshmen 8. But it can not be called a victory for the Seniors, but a victory for Smith who scored 29 out of the 45 points for his class. The result was a surprise in that it was expected that the Sophomores with Alexander and Schlag would take first place and that the Juniors would not gain a place. But the unexpected brilliant work of Henry, Wood and Howard upset the dope and nearly Won the meet since the only reason for their loss was the fact that, having to participate in so many events, tired them out. The .next step was the election of George Smith Captain, as his work in the Inter-Class meet had surely proved that he was the man for the place. The preliminaries were run off May 14, but as the track was in bad condition the time was below the average. Although Granite City and Edwardsville have practically the same teams as last year, while nothing is known about Collinsville, it is the belief of those best able to judge, that our chances for victory are high. Ed. Enos, whose name needs no explanation, is coaching the team, and itself is an assurance. The tentative team is as follows: Mile RUHAC. Howard and I. Clevenger. 440-yard Run-T. Henry and H.

"The Princess Chrysanthemum," the operetta presented by the musical department of the Alton High School, was the most elaborate and spectacular entertainment ever attempted by the High School. The rhythmic swaying and bowing of the gayly costumed Japanese girls, the mysterious and weird movements of the sprites, the suggestion of elusive Fairy-land, the uncanny realness of the Court Chamberlain and the grotesque impersonation of the Wizard Cat, combined with music of a decidedly Oriental flavor to produce a most charming and haunting effect. The humorous situations which were interspersed throughout the performance, added no little pleasure to the enjoyment of the evening's entertainment. It was not the first appearance of many of those who played the leading roles, so it was to be expected that they would show the naturalness and unembarrassment due to a familiarity with the stage from before the footlights, while those who were appearing for the first time reflected great credit upon those who so faithfully and untiringly expended time and effort in the drilling. Too much praise cannot be given the girls and boys of the choruses, for their splendidly concerted work. The ease, grace and unity of action appeared so simple and easy, that an audience made of people who have had no similar experience could scarcely appreciate how much tiresome practice is necessary to produce the simplest effects. The long hours of effort to produce a concerted floor sweeping Japanese bow, or to become familiar enough with the Japanese way of crossing the stage so as not to fail once, will undoubtedly have a lasting effect upon the girls so carefully drilled. Miss Gilmore, who drilled the characters for the speaking parts, for the Iirst time showed Alton High School the talent she has for clever interpretation. Miss Jones, our able Supervisor of Music, has shown the public several times the ability she possesses in producing superior musical entertainment. And last, but not least, a profit of one hundred dollars, after paying for very expensive costumes, shows a very careful business management.

Prince So-Tru manages to obtain entrance to the cave and finds the ring, which at once causes Fairy Moonbeam to return and aid him.

Chorus 115 "Rose 'o Plymouth Town." To be taken back to Plymouth in 1621, and to renew an old acquaintance with Miles Standish and the Plymouth colony is a rare privilege, and this the class of 1913 made possible for its friends April 12, by presenting "Rose o' Plymouth Town". The play is a romantic comedy which admirably protrays the spirit of the time it was a crime, punishable at the whipping post, to pick a few ears of green corny when the people lived in daily dread of Indians, and yet appeared out- wardly calm and unmoved by the danger surrounding them. Although most of the players were absolutely without experience of the kind, yet owing to much work and careful drilling, they seemed entirely free from embarrassment on the stage, and the dialogue was spirited and apparently spon- taneous. The characters were protrayed with a keen insight and understanding of the parts. Adele Sotier seemed actually to be the gay and sprightly French maiden, an exotic rose transplanted to a bleak and hostile soil. She threw herself into her part with remarkable enthusiasium. James Forbes, as the bashful younger brother, always raised a laugh by his clever interpretation of Philip de la Noye. Paul Scott was the "fearsome Captain of Plymouth" even before he appeared in armor and with the marks of battle upon him. The part of Miriam, the sweet, timid little Puritan maid, was very well taken by Alice Joesting, and Elva Weber was just what a calm and devout Puritan matron should be. Bessie Stal- lings, as Aunt Resolute, who Hgoes forth to take her daily frightingf' added many humorous touches. Walter Wood took a rather thankless part very creditably, though he isn't cut out for a villain, and Clyde Schmoeller's interpretation of Garrett Foster was good throughout. In fact the play showed exceptional ability and was the result of a great deal of patient effort and hard work. Adele and Clyde will assure you that a natural and concerted sneeze is not the easiest thing in the world to do, nor is it quite so simple as it looks to serve bean porridge and keep up a conversation at the same time. A great deal of credit is due to Miss Naylor, who was tireless in her efforts in drilling the players, as well as to Miss Wempen, who acted as business manager. Between the third and fourth acts, ten junior girls in Grecian costumes and carrying branches of blossoms, gave a very pretty and graceful dance called "The Dance of the Winds," the success of which was due to Miss Bowler's careful train- ing.

The girls were drilled by Miss Bowler and Miss Wempen, and showed that much time must have been spent in preparing them.

HSUSIEH FISCHER. : l l l Lecture Course. As has been the custom, the Alton High School gave another series of entertainments. The first number of the course was given by the Fisher-Shipp Concert Company, on the thirteenth of November. In this company were Miss Shipp, soprano and readerg Miss Ailene Pettit, violinistg Mrs. Etta Goode Heacock, contralto, and Mr. Lloyd A. Lowe, accompanist. Their entertainment was greatly enjoyed by all who heard it. On November the twenty-fourth, Captain Richmond Pearson Hobson addressed us on "The Destiny of Our Nationf' This was the second number of the lecture course, and the attendance was good. Captain Hobson, who is a naval hero, is also a very fine orator. The third number was given on the seventh of February by the International Operatic Company. In the company were Mrs. Telka Farm McKinnie, sopranog Miss Rose Heidenreich, contraltog Mr. Christian Mathesen, tenorg Mr. Burt P. McKinnie, bass, and Mr. Lawrence Meuhling, accompanist and piano soloist. Their program was composed of solos, duets and quartettes, which were enjoyed by all, but probably most enjoyable was their last number, the third scene from "Martha," in costume. The fourth number was given on February the twenty-fourth, by the Castle Square Entertainers. In this company were Mr. LeRoy Hulbert, first tenor, who also played mandolin, banjo, concert horn, cornet, octavin and piano, Mr. Henri A. Keats, second tenor, who played violoncello, concert horn and is a pianist of marked ability, Mr. Pratt, baritone, who played violin, piano and cornet, and is an excellent dialect monologistg Mr. A. A. Kurtz, bass, who played the violin. This was one of the best attended numbers of the course. The fifth number was given by Dana Walden, the magician. He is certainly a master in the mysterious arts, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. He had with him a ventriloquist who caused very much amusement. As a whole, the course this year was attended better than last and was a success financially. g 122 v if WK V A - vie.: Lf ,S 5 F-I al A AE Ei f lg. xg wg v :Q I if is if 6 4 Y, , 3 K W .ns I mmm Kanawha UUE ,L Walter Wood 5 Minnie Snyder Lula Ahe Fred Alexander Leslie Alt Raymond Andrews Alma Armour Lucy Bailey Nina Baker Blanche Bell Walter Blakely Floyde Bolton Isabelle Brooke Inez Buckstrup Joseph Clevenger Linza Davis Blanche Denny Ernest Diez Florence Dick Irene Elder Rogers Farley Samuel F indley James Forbes Elma Frazer Edna Gerbig Clark Gillham Edward Gratian Tillie Guertler Harold Harford La Verne Hill Officers.

On Tuesday evening, December the twelfth, in the High School auditorium, the Illini and the Kanawha Societies met to debate upon the question: i'Resolved that the Federal Government Should Establish and Operate a Parcels Post." The Illini Society, represented by Captain Paul Zerwekh, Alvira Haley, and Mamie Sydney, argued the negative, while the Kanawha, represented by Captain Paul Scott, Gladys May and Aeola Hyatt, argued the affirmative. Both teams showed that, in the short time allotted them for preparation, they had worked hard and accomplished much. Although it was the first attempt of the Kanawha, and all three debaters were inexperienced, they proved that they were not lacking. Paul Scott, the first speaker on the affirmative, laid clearly the plan which the affirmative would use, and proceeded to prove that the parcels post is a necessity. Paul Zerwekh, the first negative speaker, plunged headlong into his speech, and spoke as if to make all believe, no matter what their former belief had been, that the parcels post is not necessary, would not benefit the United States government, and would drag the government farther and farther into debt each year. Gladys May, second affirmative speaker, spoke with just as much determination that the parcels post would be an economic advantage. Alvira Haley, second speaker for the negative, gave her speech against the post with ease, and her former public speaking stood her in good stead. Aeola Hyatt, third affirmative speaker, in her speech proved to the judges that the federal government could operate successfully a parcels post. Mamie Sydney, third negative speaker, spoke clearly and distinctly and laid her points well. The negative rebuttal was given by Paul Zerwekh, in which he was able to answer one of the three challenges offered by the affirmative. The affirmative rebuttal was given by Paul Scott. It was concise and to the point, but even at that he refuted so many arguments of such importance that he had to speak like a gatling gun, and finished just in time. The judges' decision was read amid breathless suspense. It stood affirmative. 23 negative, 1. CLYDE SCHMOELLER, '13.

In the days of ancient Rome, brave gladiators came forth to battle with fierce, wild animals, sometimes to fight and win, sometimes to sacrifice a human life to mere brute force, while breathless audiences crowding the coliseum amused themselves by watching the outcome. But in these civilized days of modern high schools, we have contests wherein, unlike those of old, boys willingly fight to maintain the honor of their high school, not to amuse but to instruct, making the contest not one of physical prowess, but of mental skill. Such a contest was held in the assembly room of the Alton High School on March 29, when three representatives of Manual Training School for Boys, of St. Louis, met Capt. Elliott Taylor, John Shine and Paul Scott, chosen to represent Alton High School, to debate the question, "Resolved, That Co-education is Unde- sirable in Secondary Schools. " Alton took the affirmative, St. Louis the negative. The struggle, however, was like that of a lion and a lamb, so docile did Alton's antagonists proved to be, and the judges' unanimous decision for the affirmative wasthe universal verdict of the interested audience. In fact, the best argument for the negative was our boys, products of a co-educational system, for they proved their superiority in address, oratory and thought. Their debate was keen and well organized, while each speaker backed up his statements with proofs or disproofs. Paul, the first speaker of the affirmative, proved conclusively that co-education is undesirable intellectually, Elliott, by clear, forceful arguments, proved that it is undesirable physically, John, with eloquence, proved that it is undesirable morally, while, in rebuttal, Paul was so exhaustless, so fluent and so convincing in giving the final word in refutation to each argument that he won the epithet-the invincible. Q The coaches for the debate were Mr. Ritcher and Mr. Richardson. The effect of this contest was felt in renewed effort and enthusiasm for debate in the literary societies and more loyalty, in general, to Alton High School.

SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, 50 CENTS THE SCHOOL YEAR. For the first time in many years the "Piasa Quill" will close the season entirely free from debt. Too great credit can not be given to Miss Helen A. Naylor, whose skillful management and whose untiring attention has made this possible. Miss Naylor took charge of the "Quill" two years ago when it was in a very bad financial condition, but by her ceaseless labors it its behalf, she has put it on an excellent basis. The TATLER Board can easily appreciate the work that this must have necessitated. Miss Naylor will ever have the gratitude of the Alton High School. 141 ' A "' "7 LY- his ' Ji7EET.TT.":.:1 6 ii H B: ee? A - of 2 C' T C' Vi?"

Business Mgr., - - Leo Francis Grosh, B.S., CBaby Sisterl. fThe following are a few sample definitions to be found in the Altonianj. Cheat-The name applied by some few old fogies to the sensible and pro- gressive persons who use the most new, up-to-date, scientific and safe plans for allowing some other lazy individual to save their tired overworked brains the danger from nervous prostration likely to be brought on by doing just that particular lesson. Excuse-A true CFD explanation of absence, always brought from home CU. It saves further questioning from over-inquisitive persons. Fudge-The term applied to a heterogeneous conglomeration of unhygienic fodder, united by unsanitary methods for the express purpose of promulgating dyspepsia. Girl-The only word in the Engligh language impossible of analyzation. Experience counts for nothing unless it teaches the student to stop the course. Many have entered the girlology course but the wisest have failed to graduate. Even Solomon failed here, and therefore is it to be wondered at that such men as Gaskins, McKinney, Perrin and Juttemeyer have been forced to exclaim, "The more we learn the more we learn we donlt know? " Gill Ca Freshmanb handed in a 500 page description of his prospective experiences. The Altonian wishes to thank Mr. Gill. His contributions will be found on page 2313 of the 1323rd volume of the Altonian. Home-There is no place like home to eat onels meals. There is no place like home to spend one's evenings Cprovided it is her homej. There is no place like home to sleep Cprovided you have a latch keyb. Teacher--This species Cit has not yet been decided whether they are human or notl has probably more other names than any other. It is known as pedagogue, crab, old man, old lady, instructor, etc., but it is usually designated either by a special nickname peculiarly fitted to its habits or by the last name allotted to it by nature Ca most skillful giver of fitting namesb. This species does not exactly resemble any other species, having a much fiercer and more determined look, probably gotten by the habit they have acquired of having their own ways. They can usually be distinguished by spectacles, and a formidable weapon in one hand, often a ruler. They will fight if not cornered. The best advice that can be given in regard them is-4to avoid them whenever possible. NOTE.-The full edition of this encyclopedia appears on pages 1323-2313 of the TATLER. Don't miss it? Look for it.

If you are a knocker, read this because we want your boost. If you aren't a knocker, read it anyway and see what you have escaped. If you haven't been slammed hard enough, we are sorry. If you haven't been slammed at all, get busy and get some notoriety and by next year you will attract the attention of the TATLER BOARD sufficiently to get a slam. Clt pays to advertisel. If you have been slammed too hard, rejoice that your faults were so glaring as to attract the attention of the TAT- LER BOARD. If you don't like our slams, why read them? N 0 one asked 15 5 you to. Look at the pictures and if you don't quit slamming our slams, you ought to be slammed. If you could have done better, we are sorry that you weren't in our place. We haven't tried to please. We have tried to displease. If your feelings are injured and you are a lady, don't speak to the magazine editor, he'll be sorry. If you are a man and can spell able, beat him up. His name is Sylvester De Lacy, and his office is in the Knocker's Exchange, sixteen stories below ground. If you are pleased with our slams, report it to the complaint department. It will be remedied immediately.
