Koch Edward Wagenfeldt IN APPRECIATION From early morning until dusk these men toil in the interest of the high school. Their task is never done. The janitors of Alton High work under serious handicaps. In the grade school, when three-thirty comes the building is cleared out and the janitor may go on with his work unhindered. But not so at the high school. In one room is a Tatler Staff meeting, in the next is a Red and Gray meeting, and in another is a class meeting; in the typing room are always a few students who remain to work, in the assembly is play practice, in the gym, band practice; upstairs is the Glee Club, in 9A is detention, and in countless other rooms are students staying for various purposes, preventing the janitors from doing their work. They cannot sweep the floor under the seats which are occupied, so they must find other things to do until practically every one has left. Don't you remember a janitor opening the door during a meeting, looking in at you, heaving a sigh, and shutting the door resignedly? From time to time extra work demands their attention. Alton High School is the receiving center for all Alton schools. The janitors unpack the books and supplies, put them away, and get them out again when they are called for. The high school, having an auditorium, provides a place ideally situated for entertainments, concerts, plays, and the like. For these events the janitors must be on hand. Our janitors are well trained for their positions; they have taken graduate courses in the subject of good nature. They have a smile for every one, a kind greeting for all. Although things happen sometimes which would cause most people's temper to become violent, they pass it off in the best way possible and smile. This is the lesson that we learn from you, Mr. Koch, and you, Mr. Russell, and you, Mr. Wagenfeldt. Leona Fundell Page Fifteen ) 1 ] ] 5 i 1LOOKIHG BACKWARD Now that our dream of a modern high school building is nearing real' ization, it is fitting that we record the facts in the growth of our school. The story begins with a high school conducted in the basement of the Unitarian Church in 1816. At this time there were only two small public schools here. Through the influence of Moses Atwood, bonds were issued for a new twelve room building. This building was erected; it was long known as No. 2, but it is now known as Lincoln School. Here one room was set aside for the high school pupils. The course covered only two years, but during Mr. E. A. Haight’s term as superintendent another year was added. Before this the high school was administered by the superintendent; now, however, a principal was found necessary. During Principal Wilkinson's term the course was extended to four years. The one room in the Lincoln School soon became too small, so two rooms were used. The number of students continued to increase, and another room was added. Before long the entire third floor and two rooms on the second floor were in use. When Lincoln School became too small for both high school and grade school, the people voted for a new building. $50,000 was authorized, and the construction was begun in 1902. On June 11 the corner stone was laid with elaborate ceremonies. In accordance with Masonic rites it was annointed with oil and wine, and wheat was sprinkled over it. This new building was an ornament to Alton; its structure was admired by all who visited it. Its capacity was 500. In the Lincoln School the enrollment in 1895 was 126. In the new building in 1905 it was 243. In 1920 the enrollment was 675, and now it is 983. In the years 1874 to 1878 the graduates numbered 127, but during the next five years their number fell to 69. Then came a gradual increase. Since the opening of the present building the number has grown considerably, until now about 380 are graduated every three years.

Look through it with us and learn of our glory. Class of January 1928 Catherine Haberer, President Our cousin Kate is a worthy lass. She makes a fine officer for her class.

Alyce Chappell Our sister Alyce brings all of us joys. She fills up’.the house with all kinds of boys. 1 f f ( i Class of January 1928 Bessie Ash Here is our sister who liked lots of fun.

Her high school ambition was to make people cheer. John Darling The favourite son Johnny; a big “athalete For virtue and courage he couldn't be beat Harry Dickinson Now most every family has one talented son. Our family is blest with this noble one.

But you ought to hear her when there is a row. John Maguire Brother John says it's nice not to be tall. For whenever he trips, not far does he fall.

He's so much like a sun we all call him "Ray." Pauline Stiritz We love this girl, she's our sister Pauline, She has to be good for she couldn't be mean.

His coming carried with it the prophecy that an athletic record would be made which could be looked back upon with satisfaction. Starting with fair material and keeping an eye on the future, he moulded teams which amply realized this prophecy. A season in which a football team collects a total of 109 points against its opponents’ 61 and a basketball team attracts attention in two arduous tournaments, is hardly to be set down as a failure. Coach MacWherter’s personal effect on the morale of the players and the confidence of the student body is a signify cant factor in his achievement.

DARLING 1926 John Alphonse Darling is considered by many critics one of the fore' most tackles in the South Western Illinois High School Conference. He began his athletic career at the Cathedral High School in Alton and made the football team in his freshman and sophomore years. He entered Alton High School in his junior year and immediately won his way into the front ranks as an athlete. He has played with Alton High for two years and during that time has distinguished himself as a player of remarkable ability and courage. He was unequaled both at offensive and defens-ive work and his unparalleled leadership had much to do with the success of our 1926 team. Page Fiftyfime[ 1 Bryant, Quarterback Yoder, Fullback Fors, Quarterback The return of Johnny MacWherter as mentor of Alton High athletics worked the expected effect on the morale of the football men. The team of "26 showed a complete reversal of the form shown in the disastrous pre-vious season. Mac built his successful combination around the letter men of 1925, Captain Darling, Cravens, Brown, Fors, Maguire, Malcolm, and, Captanvelect Bryant. All these men played well during the entire season and formed a strong nucleus of concentrated attack for the rest of the squad. Most of them rose to their greatest heights during the Western battle, when Alton held the Prep League Champions to a scoreless tie. At the beginning of the season, Mac was quick to see that he would have to find three or four capable linemen to fill the places left by those of Percival, Tackle Hacke, Guard Oehler, GuardBrown, Halfback Maguire, Halfback Collins, Halfback the past year. This was no easy task, but after much careful experiment' ing he discovered the desired articles in the persons of Hacke, Oehler, and Dick Percival. These three men played throughout the season in a very impressive manner, and we are glad to know that we have Hacke and Perci-val with us again in "27. Mac not only produced a winning team, but built up one for next season. It was evident throughout the year that he was looking into the future, for he worked carefully with subs and lowerclassmen all season. In nearly every game the capable subs on the sidelines were given a chance. Some of the men in this group were Jones, Campbell, Rose, Rhiel, and Orr. Mac is confident that thes? players will make things bright the coming season. Malcolm, End Rose, End Tolley, End Page Sixty-OneCampbell, Center Bacus, Halfback Cravens, Center On September 25, Alton got off to a whirlwind start by defeating Jerseyville. After the first quarter, there was no doubt of the outcome; all through, the Alton warriors completely outclassed the invaders. Mac gave everybody a chance in this game and got a pretty good idea who was who. All played well, but the end running of Collins and the plunging of Maguire stood out prominently. The final score, 27 to 0, would have been greater but for the numerous substitutions. Two weeks later the team played the “class of the conference,” Collinsville. They outweighed our men fifteen pounds to the man, but Alton balanced this with its fighting spirit. Collinsville’s star, Gallaspy, O’Neill, Halfback Jones, Halfback Page Sixty-Twogot off to many sensational runs, and Collinsville won 26 to 6, Maguire shoving one over the last line for Alton in the last quarter. The score does not indicate how hard Alton fought against the winners. The following week Alton regained its confidence to the fullest ex' tent by tramping on Wood River to the tune of 26 to 0. This game was a repetition of the conflict with Jerseyville. Alton’s superior play was evident throughout the game. Every man on the squad was given a chance to show his stuff, even Bud Hamer. It would have been difficult to pick individual heroes in this walkaway, for everybody starred. October 16 saw Alton travelling to East Side to play. Alton was weakened slightly by Collins’s sprained ankle, suffered in practice that week. All fought hard to make up for this and only after a stubborn battle admitted defeat on the terms of 13 to 6. This day marked East Side’s return to the conference football schedule, and an impressive return it was. Alton fans got their first real fill of football when Carlinville paid Alton a visit on October 23. They came with a big, husky gang of over' grown farmers who knew how to play football. The game was a struggle from start to finish, neither team getting within the four yard line. Easily the feature of the day was the stone wall defense exhibited by both teams, especially in the line. Percival, Cravens, and Darling stopped many of the enemy’s onrushes and hardly a time was there sufficient gain made around Malcolm’s or Tolley’s end. The result was a scoreless tie, although, use' less to say, local fans agreed that our boys outplayed the visitors. In the next week Alton' took two trips, one to Edwardsville, the other to Belleville. The game at Edwardsville was played in mud four inches deep. Throughout the game Alton was handicapped by Edwardsville’s superior weight, and as a result the local masons (they worked with clay) went down to defeat by the score of 13 to 7- They avenged this on the following Friday by defeating an old rival, Belleville. The final count was 12 to 9. Belleville scored its points in the last quarter after our regulars had been taken out. The next week Alton kept up its winning ways by conquering Granite City. The score was 25 to 0. In this game the backfield men, Collins, Brown, Maguire, and Yoder, all got off to long runs. The Jacksonville game, scheduled next, was not played on account of rain. The big game of the year was on Thanksgiving Day. It was better than all the rest put together. The dope was that Western would win by a topheavy score, but the fighting spirit of the Alton team had not been Page Sixty-Three considered by the dopesters; the result was the hardest fought, cleanest, most thrilling game of the year. Every player on both teams played won' derfully, but the two greatest players without a doubt were Cravens, playing his last game for Alton, and Collins, fleet halfback. These men gained almost all of Alton's yardage, Collins by his great runs through a broken field, Cravens by six intercepted passes, three of which required sensational leaps in the air. This game, which will long be remembered by all who witnessed it, ended with a scoreless tie. But this was looked upon by the Alton camp as almost as good as a victory, for the dope was upset, and a successful season creditably ended. John Bowden. THE FOOTBALL SEASON AT A GLANCE .

Practice was started by Coach Johnnie Mac on the the first day of December and about fifty candidates reported for the initial drill. Mac gradually diminished the unusually large number of aspir' ants to the minimum number of fifteen in the course of a week, and then practice was begun in earnest. Alton opened the season with a fighting victory over Belleville. This game was in doubt until the final gun. Next came Carlinville; they came with a determination to win at any cost and they did, but it was an unlucky break that decided the issue in the closing minutes of play. Alton had maintained a lead throughout the third quarter when with fifteen seconds to go a Carlinville forward threw a wild one through the hoop from mid' floor, cinching the game for the upstate visitors by the slim margin of one point. Alton soon found out that it had to get used to such unlucky breaks, for during the course of the season we lost four battles by one point as well as three by two'point margins. It was hard luck games like these that kept Alton from having one of the best records in its history. Seven minutes equally divided in as many games might have meant seven more victories for the Red and Gray machine, which would surely have put Alton on the top rung of the ladder. I i ) 1 3 Page Sixty-Five The coming of Bill Nicolet into the ranks of eligibility in February seemed to work a miracle on the team. The whole squad “pepped up” and started to play real basketball; consequently, Alton lost but three of its last twelve games. In this long string of brilliant victories the Red and Gray beat some of the best teams in this section of the State. Alton went to the District Tournament at Granite City and by hard playing worked its way to the finals. Playing four games in two days with no substitutions in three of the games, the boys became rather tired and as a result were nosed out of the district championship by two points. The Madison first team, having played only one previous game in the tournament, were rested and in much better condition to play than Mac's cohorts. In this tournament Alton defeated Bunkerhill, Edwardsville, and Chesterfield before meeting Madison in the finals. Because of the good showing of our team in the District Tourney it was invited by Washington University to attend its seventh annual in-vitation tournament. Alton, useless to say, accepted, and although the team had played strenuously the week before, it came back in this tourna-ment and captured fifth place out of thirty-six teams, defeating Herculaneum, Maplewood, and Beaumont, champions of the city league of St. Louis, only to be knocked off in the semi-finals by Witt in a hard fought game, won only in the final minutes of play by the score of 20 to 16. On the whole Alton had a successful season. Alton loses only two players by graduation. Brown and Bowden. The 1928 season is going to be one of the most successful seasons thus far because Mac is sure to form a strong combination of experienced players who, led by Captain Nicolet, should cop the conference cup.

The Juniors won with a total of 47 points, the Seniors came next with 40, and the Sophomores last with 18. In the following week, the Granite City Relays were attended, McBrien winning second in the high jump with a leap of 5 ft. 8 in. As a nucleus for the team. Coach MacWherter has Brown, Hacke, Dean, Fors, and Walker from last year, and there is prospective material in many others. Alton's goal is to win the conference meet held May 28.

Page Sixty-Seven McBrien, Sauvage, Coach MacWherter, O’Neill, Bowden 1927 TENNIS The year 1927 marks Alton's appearance in the Southwestern Illinois Conference tennis schedule. Coach MacWherter decided that Alton would carry a four-man tennis team, and as a consequence a tournament was held in both singles and doubles. At the time of writing the singles tournament has not been completed, but McBrien and Bowden have won the doubles. McBrien and Sauvage are lettermen from last year; these, with O’Neill and Bowden, were chosen to represent the school. Alton seems to have a good chance to win conference honors, for in McBrien, Alton has a wonderful singles man, and Sauvage, Bowden, and O’Neill have vanquished all foes so far. The first match was with Edwardsville at the County Seat courts. McBrien won his match by the score of 60, 62, while O'Neill and Bowden conquered the doubles team 8-6, 61. Granite came here the following week and were impressively defeated in both matches. The score of the singles match, 60, 6-2, explains an overwhelming victory for McBrien; Sauvage and O’Neill, however, were pressed slightly harder before they won by the scores 64, 108. On May 2, at Belleville, McBrien tasted his first and only defeat of the season, losing a hard fought battle, 64, 7'5. Sauvage and Bowden, however, avenged this defeat by smashing to victory in two straight love sets. On the whole, the Alton 1927 tennis team bears watching.

The Society, though young, already has chapters throughout the country, and election to it is a coveted honor. “The purpose of Quill and Scroll," says its Constitution, “is to instill in students the ideals of scholarship; to advance the standards of the profession of journalism by developing better journalists and by inculcat' ing a higher code of ethics; to promote exact and dispassionate thinking, clear and forceful writing.” As we go to press the charter members are deciding upon a name for the local chapter. The name in greatest favor is that of Elijah P.

Page Seventy-SevenTHE YEAR IN CLUB ACTIVITIES Our high school organizations have been very active in the field of drama this year. The Hi-Y Club staged a very clever minstrel in the Spalding Auditorium on February twenty-fifth. “Rudy” and “Art” from KMOX were special attractions. The Girl Reserves put on “Not So Bad” a month later. The play was directed by Mrs. U. P. Johnson and the Hi-Y boys helped in the male parts. The Dramatic Club produced a program of one-act plays including an original play by Leonard Stocker. His play, “Oh Fudge'” was chosen as the best one-act play submitted and the writer received the prize, two and one-half dollars in gold, offered by Mr. Cooke. The greatest undertaking of the Club was the three-act comedy, “Green Stockings.” The play was one of the best that have been given by Alton High School students in many years. The Dramatic Club plays promise to succeed the traditional junior and senior plays. The Club was not really organized until this year. Under the sponsorship of Miss Rutledge, Miss Elk, Mr. Cooke, and Mr. Wood, the Club has grown from a few struggling members to an active organization of thirty students, and there are a great many others waiting for a chance to “try out” for admittance. Rehearsing and producing plays, however, have not occupied all the time of our clubs. The Hi-Y’s gave a dinner for the football team and also a father and son banquet. The Girl Reserves entertained the faculty at tea at their camp which was given to them last fall by Mr. Charles Levis. They have also enjoyed hikes and picnics, and even have spent a week-end in their new camp. In speaking of our organizations, we cannot leave out our bands. Alton High School had two organized, fully equipped bands, known as “A” Band and ‘B” Band. Although “A” Band is considered the better, “B” Band often furnished able substitutes. It acts in the same capacity as our second teams. Under the direction and leadership of Mr. Johnson, these bands have accomplished a great deal during the year. They have furnished music for grade school concerts and socials. They have played for the high school assembly and on June 10 will give a concert on the lawn of the orphanage for the benefit of the children. Mr. Johnson also directs the orchestra, which he feels has done very well this year. For the most part, Alton High activities are carried on by a rather small group in the student body. The clubs, however, furnish types of training which cannot always be offered in regular classes. It should therefore be everyone’s concern to seek membership in at least one organization. Page Seventy-Eight Jane Wyckoff, Tatler QueenLucille Lehmkuhl Alice Logan Frances Haynes Helen Doyle Harriet butler Catherine Haberer Ruth Moore TATLER QUEEN CONTEST This year the dreary routine of subscription drives was relieved by the novelty of a Queen Contest. Each of the four upper classes elected two girls who became candidates for the honor of being named “Tatler Queen.” The contestants and their friends were furnished subscription blanks and sent forth to win their fortunes by selling Tatlers. They were given one month in which to sell subscriptions. Each receipt for one dollar and fifty cents counted as fifteen votes and each seventy-five cent receipt counted as five. Much interest was shown by the student body, which looked forward to the reports issued from time to time on the standing of the candidates. On Homecoming Day it was announced that Jane Wyckoff was the winner by a large majority. That the contest served its purpose is shown by the fact that three-fourths of all subscriptions sold during the year were brought in during the contest; most of these were paid in full, a matter of interest to the Business Manager, who was enabled to take advantage of cash discounts. Page EightyLAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE JUNE CLASS The semi-annual impoverishment of the student body caused by the departure of the Senior Class has long been deplored. It has remained for the June 1927 Class, however, to do something about it. Each member has agreed to perpetuate his dearest possession by bestowing it upon some deserving junior.

Calendar SEPTEMBER 7 Hello everybody! Glad to see you back. Is that the new principal? Well, he looks like a good scout. 8 Lots of new friends and then some old friends in new forms: Mr. Wood with a moustache. Miss Wempen, Miss Cartwright, and Miss Paul with bobbed hair, Mr. Enzinger and Mr. Schaefer as married men. 9 More heat and less study. Everyone wants second hand books. 10 One week of school over. At last we are beginning to be able to tell the new teachers apart—at least we can tell the men from the women. 13 Heard in the halls, “Oh dear, I haven’t got my Latin for today”—of course she was a freshman. 14 The Girl Reserves hold their first meeting. A full program for the year is planned by the club. 15 The faculty gives a party for the new teachers and Mr. Turpin at Clifton Terrace. Miss Elk wins bridge prize. 16 First rainy day at school. The seniors have the freshmen looking for the underground passage over to Commercial. 17 Tatler staff made known to the general public. Send in your jokes and snap shots. 20 Miss Rumsey takes the World History classes to the Cahokia Mounds. A good time was reported but no additional relics were found by the pupils. 21 Hi Y holds its first meeting. Mr. Turpin is the speaker and he gives a fine address. 22 The usual Wednesday assembly held and the students stumble through “Love's Old Sweet Song” again. Mr. Johnson announces his plan for the three bands, the Regular, Beginner, and Military. 23 John Darling is Captain of our football team. Everybody getting pepped up for our first game Saturday. 24 The faculty has another party. This time the Board and Mr. Curtis entertain. We students feel neglected. 25 Alton defeats Jersey ville 27-0. Hooray—Collins made the first touch- down of the year. 26 Results of class election posted. Perry Edsall and Melvin Gent are senior presidents. 28 Red and Gray start subscription drive. Might as well pay your sixty cents now, folks, and rest in peace. 29 Gradually we are getting used to Mr. Wood's “cookie duster.” One of his feminine pupils told him that it “tickled” her. 30 It’s getting cold—oh well, that means Christmas is that much nearer.OCTOBER 14 Civics has an upsetting effect on Harry Fred. He fell over in his chair twice today, under its influence. 15 Well, I guess it was the atmosphere, not Civics. Gordon Gerard succumbed in French class today. 18 Johnnie “Mac” is reorganizing the team. It’ll be hard on either the boys or the tobacco merchants—which?? 21 Friends will be glad to hear that John Maguire suffered only slight injuries when he was trampled on in the Chemistry lab. this morn' ing. The cause of the accident was female panic due to an expected explosion. 22 Alton High has a new member. Miss Turtle made her bow to society in the sixth hour study today. 23 Alton ties Carlinville OO. We are proud of the boys. They played a fine game. 25 We are sorry to announce that Mr. Smith, guardian of the turtle, has decided it is not time for her debut and had returned her to the “fold.” 28 We had our regular sing this moring. Captain Darling gave us a talk during the pep meeting that followed. 29 Congratulations to the janitors. The windows are so clean that Jack H. thought they were open. Result: A cut head, and a broken window. 30 10 A. M. Jubilation! We get out at 2 o’clock to attend the Edwards' ville game. 5 P. M. Gloom reigns. We lost 13-0. NOVEMBER 1 A very unpleasant week-end just passed. Most inconsiderate of dear teachers to send out green slips on Friday. 2 Second issue of the Red and Gray out today. 3 Tatler program in Assembly this morning. Please omit vases. 11 Big day!! Holiday and we beat Granite. 15 Report cards out today. Many sad faces. Most of us are not going out tonight. 17 Two unusual phenomena: snow and an assembly. 18 We thought “Razz” was planning to climb the Rockies today but found out those high boots are all the style. Our mistake. 19 Don’t faint! Another holiday! Dear teachers visit St. Louis’ Schools. 22 Teachers trying to corrupt dear old A. H. S. with these new Soldan and Beaumont ideas. Fortunately we’re quite set in the straight and narrow path. 23 Ruth Mac suggests that Mr. Stallings might enter his Hup in the big parade Thanksgiving day and call it “The Wreck of Western.” 24 Big pep meeting this morning. Tribute paid to the grave of Western. Page Eighty-Hine 25 Home Coming!! The most exciting game Turkey and everything forgotten. Alton ties Western!!! Dink and his friends were in from the country. Between halves they entertained us with the antics of their Rolls Royce. 26 Holiday The day after the day before. 30 Explosion in Chem. lab. second hour. We're getting used to them now, though. DECEMBER 1 The orchestra entertained today—I mean they played for us—I mean they tried -Oh, you know what 1 mean. 2 Dramatic Club had a small meeting tonight. This is the beginning. 3 Jane Wyckoff named Tatler Queen. 8 Fourth hour chorus sang today assisted with solos by Anneka Theen. 13 Polish up your skates boys and girls; it’s getting colder. 15 Boys' chorus sang today. 16 Alton High's Economists aren’t lucky as debators. Our teams were defeated both in Granite City and at home. Better luck next time! 17 “Christmas is coming with its ice and snow.” 20 Everybody’s being good and hoping “Santy” won't forget him. 21 “Red” took Genevive home from school tonight. 22 No Assembly. Increasing excitement!! 23 We gave all our donations for the poor today. They amounted to $346 this year, which is more than ever before. 24 CHRISTMAS VACATION BEGINS!!! We all hang up our stockings tonight. 25 Merry Christmas. JANUARY 3 Back to school! Full of good cheer and good resolutions —“apple' sauce.” 5 We’re “Out on the Deep” again this morning. No final exami' nations just tests. 10 Welcome Miss Freida Voss. Miss Voss is to be our librarian during Miss Stamper’s illness. 11 Buy a ticket for the liquid air demonstration to be given in the assembly room tomorrow after school.

Dramatic Club tryouts after school. 14 Seniors practising hard for “The Goose Hangs High.” 17 Forgot to mention a very important event. “Razz” is our next year’s football captain. 19 “The Goose Hangs High” was presented at the Grand by the Senior class. 20 “Inward sunshine, outward joys, Dinsmore Wood, our dean of boys.” 23 Baccalaureate Service at the Evangelical Church. Page Ninety28 Good'bye old seniors. We’ll miss your beaming presences. Gradu' ation exercises tonight. 31 New Semester! We’re all going to be on the honor roll this quarter. Some shamefaced girls around. I understand they are mortified because the speaker Friday night gave them personal attention. How silly! I think that’s quite an honor. There are a lot of little children around school today. Is the kindergarten taking a tour through the high school? FEBRUARY 3 I can’t figure out whether one whose name begins with z is lucky or not. For him the evil is postponed, but he probably perishes of anxiety before he gets it—it, of course, being his report card. 9 Assembly this morning. Tickets for Freshmen on sale by all upper classmen. One actually bought. Well, “there’s one born every minute.” 14 Where did Genevive, Darlene, Helen D, Hatty C and all the rest of those girls get those lacy hearts? 16 Took our daily dozen in the assembly this morning singing “Star Spangled Banner,” “Loyalty,” and a few other patriotic songs. 17 Webster is recovering nicely from the bums he received in the Chemistry explosion the other day. 21 The Dramatic Club presented “Oh Fudge”! “The Trysting Place,” and “The Twelve Pound Look.” “Oh Fudge” was written by Leonard Stocker. The profane title is typical of Leonard. 28 Sorry boys, this isn’t leap year. MARCH 1 March certainly is coming in like a lion—snow and everything. 4 No Assembly this week- Nothing important happened. The poor dear Congress adjourned today. 7 Tatler drive now on. Buy a Tatler. 9 Mr. Dune sang Harry Lauder songs and Dr. Foster spoke to us in our afternoon assembly. He has spoken to more students than any other man in the United States. 10 Sign up for the bus to Granite City to the tournament tomorrow. 11 Tournament! 9:00 A. M. Beat Bunker Hill—Rah Rah! 9:30 P. M. Beat Edwardsville in a most exciting game. We're favor ites for the championship now. 12 4iX) P. M. Beat Chesterfield—only one game to go and good old Alton High will be--- 9:30 P. M.

We sang, “In a Little Spanish Town.” The school is going to the dogs. Page H'nsty-One17 Tournament at Washington University. We beat both Herculaneum and Maplewood. 18 Beat Beaumont High School. Hooray! 19 Were defeated by Witt, Illinois. But we were proud of ourselves anyway. 21 Girl Reserves are practicing “Not So Bad.” There’s a budding romance in the cast. Guess who! 25 “Not So Bad” is successfully over but the romance is just beginning. 31 Holiday!! APRIL 1 Holiday!! The April fool’s on the poor dear instructors. They attend institute. 5 Big hail storm this morning. Weir B. rescued a strayed cat at his own expense. Going to give him an “A,” Miss Perrin? 6 Mrs. Agnes Teyburger, educational director of the St. Louis Sym- hony orchestra, talked, and played our new Orthophonic. 9 Wedding Bells are ringing. Miss Gladys Gates is now Mrs. Guy Cornwell. “Congratulations Mr. Cornwell.” 11 Our Ritzy new report cards are out today. Deportment and every- thing on them. They just don’t want Mother and Dad to miss a thing. Mr. Wood handed out tickets to be sold for the all day excursion May 5th. 12 Mr. Wood recalled the tickets today. The Excursion is postponed. Girl Reserves elect officers tonight. 14 Buy a tag and help the track team. 15 Nancy and Paulie to the Princess tonight. 18 Try-outs for the Senior Play. Beat Edwardsville in tennis. 20 Football and basketball letters are given out. A large gray “A” is to be the standard letter. 21 Joe Stork and some of his friends come prepared. They bring their roller skates with them. 22 “Green Stockings” a huge success. Ellen Pfeiffer basks in the sun- light of popularity. 26 An earnest young chap gives us a talk on the Forest Reserve of Illinois. Those who prefer spontaneous bunk to well prepared information are bored. 27 Girl Reserves have a picnic at Riverview Park. 29 Miss Ferguson’s Latin class gives a play in the gym during the third hour. MAY 3 Mr. Schrantz goes to play practice tonight. 4 Mr. Mitchell Petruzzi, accompanied by Mr. W. D. Armstrong, help us celebrate Music Week. A most inspiring program. When we come back to earth we find ourselves in second hour classes. Page Hinety-Two5 Mr. Petruzzi must have been an inspiration to Mr. Smith. A bottle of hair tonic was noticed on his desk today. 6 Big celebration. Exhibit, etc. Frank Eugene La Gere III makes his first formal appearance as the “imp” in the Dramatic Club play, “The Exchange." 10 The Calendar goes to press. The rest is based on imagination. 23 All day excursion. 27 Senior Play, “Mrs. Bumpstead Leigh.” JUNE 3 TATLER out. That boy Faris is clever. Staff members are saying that a leather cover would have cost a hundred dollars more. 10 Junior Prom. 12 Baccalaureate Service. 17 Graduation. (Add your own comment). JUST BEFORE THE BASKETBALL GAME Only fifteen minutes, and that game for which we have so anxiously waited will begin! We sit on a hard bench which might be a bed of clouds, for we are sublimely unconscious of it. Outdoors the air is still, and crisp, and cold. The moon and stars seem to be holding themselves far aloof from the hot and stuffy gym. Thoughts are running busily in and out our minds. Now the boys are coming out on the floor for practice. For a moment there is partial silence. Then the bedlam breaks loose. “Yea Team!” The cheer leaders remind one of band leaders, conducting a very stirring march. It seems as though all the noise comes from their bodies, the rhythm is so perfect. A whistle is blown. The effect is electrical! The noise stops instantly and a dead silence prevails. We become tense with excitement, every nerve concentrating on the scene before us. Thoughts of all kinds have ceased to flutter through our minds. We sit dumbly, insensible to the remarks made by that frivolous flapper just in back of us and the odor of grape chewing gum that issues from her mouth as she makes them, in' sensible to the atmosphere which with every moment grows hotter, closer, more stifling, reeking with the odor of the “Lady Betty” or the “O Henry” that is growing sticky and melting on someone’s fingers. Bang! Instantly our tense muscle is roused! The roar from the crowd is almost deafening! Our minds go racing along with each player. We feel as though we shall burst with enthusiasm. We shout to the players, the crowd, the world! “C'mon team, FIGHT ’EM!” Virginia Bramlette Page Ninety-ThreeEDUC'A'A'A'A'A'A'A'A'A'A'TION (It is not surprising, when one considers how few students really appreciate the benefit of public education, to find teachers regarded as taskmasters and spoken of only in uncomplimentary terms. With this in mind, the Editor includes the following sketch of what the writer calls her “ideal class;” it will do its bit in compensating for the carping criticism which is the sole conversational stock of most students.—Editor's Note) Mr. Babblemore enters the room in a great hurry after the tardy signal has rung. After much calling and pounding he brings his class to order. The students settle down for their fifteen minute study period and all is still. Mr. Babblemore looks through his book, deeply interested. All of a sudden he blurts out, “Where’s the lesson?” He is quickly answered, and then he begins, “You know, I believe Birger should be sent up for life. Did you read last night’s paper? Peaches Browning lost that divorce case against Daddy Browning." Jimmy, a rather bright student, speaks up: “Say, Mr. Babblemore, I am sure interested in that new Hupmobile they are putting out." Mr. Babblemore, grinning from ear to ear, hastily replies, “Yes, have you seen my old bus lately?” Someone in back, who is afraid he will miss an interesting discussion puts in, “Oh, I thought that was a new car.” Mr. Babblemore, pleased, begins to talk; the fifteen minute signal rings; he continues to talk. “Did you see me the other evening?” Jimmy, greedy for helpful information, answers, “Yes, over on Eighth Street.” Again Mr. Babblemore launches upon an instructive lecture. “Yes, you did. My fatherdndaw is ill with the flu. My wife and I were going over to see him. They live on Alabama Avenue.” Jimmy again offers encouragement: “Well, your car sure looked swell”. Mr. Babblemore delivers a lecture which is voted by all students as his masterpiece. “Well, you see I ground all the valves and took the carbon out of the spark plugs. The crank case was dirty, so I cleaned it out with bla'bla-bla. My piston rings weren’t knocking right, so I put in new ones. The body I was going to Duco, but I decided to use What’s its name? Oh, yes, Simonize. Those balloon tires are bla-bla-bla.” After forty minutes of this we have learned all that every boy and girl should know about a car. But just as the teacher is getting his second wind, Mary, one of those students who don’t take much to education, is found asleep. Mr. Babblemore storms in indignation. The signal rings. Dorothy Mann Page hlmety-FourWHAT WILL THE YOUNG MAN WEAR NEXT There seems to he a decided trend toward beauty in the attire of the young men of Alton Hi. What with Black Bottom sweaters, high laced boots, Kollege Kut suits, and awning pants, the marriage notices of some of these boys in about 1932 or 33 will probably read something like this: “Wednesday afternoon at three-thirty o’clock, Mr. Smytheson Beretreauve Smythe, son of Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Smythe of Sterling place, became the bridegroom of Fanny Brown. “The bridegroom was charmingly attired in ebony black trousers daintily striped in an attractive shade of old rose and a cutaway coat in delicate fawn gray shading down to shell pink. An air of studied careless' ness was attained by a splash of egg yolk on his cravat. For jewelry he wore a beautiful elk’s tooth suspended across his chest on a delicate golden cable. As he passed gracefully down the aisle a delightful aura of perfume was wafted in his wake, and it was whispered knowingly among those present that it was genuine essence of sloe gin. “The bridegroom was given away by his father, who in dress was hardly distinguishable from the son except for the negligent touch of one silken sock overlapping his shoetop. “The bride was also there.” Leonard Stocker TOLD IN SONG If you have any doubt about the imbecility of our popular songs, the following dialogue ought to dispel it. The participants, inadvertently overheard by the Tatler reporter, were, it seems, saturated in the diction of the day. He: Hello Bluebird! Put your arms where they belong (hugs and kisses). Sweet thing. I’d love to call you my sweetheart, cause I love you. She: Do'do'do, Mercy Percy, I never knew what the moonlight could do. Everything’s peaches. I’d rather be the girl in your arms than the girl in your dreams. He: Tonight you belong to me. Precious; I’ve grown so lonely thinking of you that I’m tellin’ the birds, tellin’ the bees how I love you Where’d you get those eyes? You're burning me up. Whisper, am I wastin' my time? She: I know that you know, Cherie, I love you. Who could be more wonderful than you? My baby knows how, that’s why I love you. He: That's a good girl. Sweetie Pie. There’s no maybe in my baby's eyes.

Thus after many hours of labor I have compiled this set of qualifications and virtues which are character' istic of an ideal teacher. No doubt with this guide to go by the Board of Education will have little difficulty in satisfying the students; and the teachers who fall short of the ideal standards can take exercises each morn' ing until they, too, are perfect. First of all nothing disgusts us students more than to hear of “The Town" or “The State” of “The Sister, Brother, Aunt, Uncle or Children” every time an illustration is needed in the class room. The ideal teacher must never mention his home town or state or even his immediate family unless to show how much worse they are than the corresponding local things. An important quality lacking in some teachers is sympathy for a healthy appetite. The ideal instructor should allow the eating of olives, candy and other dainties at all times. Under no conditions should the students be refused the right to chew gum, for chewing gum is a great aid to digestion. A very bad habit of some instructors is to have tests on subjects not emphasized in class. The teacher who wins favor with a pupil must by all means tell all the questions and then the correct answers the day before the test. If, on the day of the test, the pupil should forget the answer to the question, the teacher should not object if the student receives an inspiration from his neighbor's paper. Studying is tiresome when applied in too great doses. Thus the per' feet school master allows some time for recreation. The recreation most favored by the boys is archery (paper wads are preferred to arrows), and by the girls, gossiping. Besides having all of the good qualities mentioned, the model instructor must in addition be willing to subscribe to all school publications, buy tickets to all plays, socials, or other entertainments given by any club or organization of the school, go to all athletic meets, act as a liberal chaperone for all parties, hikes, hay'rides, or steak fries given during the school year. No student admires partiality in a teacher if it is unbeneficial to him' self, but all students like the benefits derived from being “teacher's pet.” The instructor also must favor any reform whereby the student gets out of work. By no means should the ideal send green slips home or detain a student after four years of high school life. Page Hinety-Eight Gertrude HaightIT'S FUN TO BE IN THE BAND Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 3:30 there is a meeting of the Alton High School Band. For the first five minutes, you can hear gruesome noises coming from the tuba, the bass, the baritone, and the trombone. Then suddenly every thing is deathly quiet. Mr. Johnson, the director, is at his place. This is Thursday, and I feel it in my bones that we are due for a long lecture on attacking notes. Yes, I’m right; he’s going to lecture the alto section. He walks down to the first alto and reprimands him for not paying attention. Mr. Johnson goes back to the platform (made for him to direct from), and he has all the instruments tune up. He finds that the third trombone is one-eighteenth of a tone pitch off. The following minutes bring up many interesting things. The Direct' or explains how he would play a cornet solo for a concert and then shows how he would play “Mary Lou” for a circus band. He wants us to play a selection from “Faust” concert style. We try it and have to play the introduction four times without progressing any. He soon becomes angry because our solo clarinet player made his instrument squawk, and bursts a baton by allowing it to fall upon the floor and accidentally stepping on it. With ironical anger, he suggests that we try to play “Honor Bound” rated as a beginner’s piece. This time the Director finds that the trouble all along has been due to the loose skin on the bass drum. Oh boy! It sure is fun playing in the band. Charles Sotier IT WAITS FOR NO MAN A teacher of shorthand named Clark Would mark students’ papers till dark: And then he would rise With an air of surprise And the great lapse of time would remark.

The first thing I knew I seemed to be drifting slowly, sweetly, into a paradise, thinking how nice it would be to succumb to the temptation ahead, yet mindful of the terrible thing left behind in my journey which seemed to hamper my progress into dreamland and pull me back into its great yawning depths like a powerful magnetism.

Florence Stevens A Storm. Not a sound broke that uncanny stillness. The air pressed closer and hotter. At last the calm was broken, but only by the pat, pat, pat of large raindrops on the roof. The wind rose as if from nowhere. The sky was rent by a vivid flash of lightning which lit up all the space within my vision with a ghastly green glare. A violent crash of thunder followed which left me cowering closer to the bed for protection. Page One Hundred Two Ruth SmithTHESE, OUR ADVERTISERS, are the friends of Alton High School.

LOUIS. MISSOURI College Annual Builders of AmericaYOU MAY HAVE THE LAST WORD A fact which the peruser of an annual is likely to overlook is that there is a very definite connection between the quality of the book and the amount of money spent on its production. Every staff, quite naturally, wants to outdo all previous staffs. But as the contents of a yearbook cannot vary much if its real purpose is to be adhered to, the improvement must be largely in the matter of appearance; and appearance, since it depends on the kind of cover and on the amount and excellence of the art work within the book, has an unpleasantly intimate relation to the funds available. It may therefore be imagined what difficulties the 1927 Tatler Staff faced when it determined to publish the book with less money in sight than any recent staff has had; the Staff was not to have the proceeds of the Senior Play, and that meant a trifle of about three hundred dollars. Yet, in spite of the necessity for economy, a book has been made which, in appearance, thanks to the art work produced by Warren Faris under the supervision of Miss Bernice Williamson, will disappoint no one. Criticisms, however, will no doubt occur even to the most charitable subscribers; but may our critics remember that probably this Tatler has few faults with which the Staff, who have worked with the book, are not already painfully familiar. The Staff wishes to thank all who have in any way lightened its task. Special mention is due the English 8 class which met in 8B the fourth hour; here, when help was needed, it could be found. John Bowden, a member of this class, rescued the athletic section after it had long been neglected. The Staff The Faculty Advisor Page One Hundred Twenty-Seven i lit ff V »
