"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
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.

Following close upon the end of a most successful football season the basket
ball practice began early in December. 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
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.
