"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. Mzslzke me not for my complexion."-CECIL WKJHTMAN. 97 7 l

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
