"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.

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
