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
