"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.

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

But "Smithy's" greatest worth was shown when

trouble was George didn't always stop at forty,

"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

at tackle, "Alex" did it. If Flat River has any
