Hot in Picture: Leo Jenkins OUR HELPERS We do not hesitate to say that our janitors are among the best of janitors. Early in the morning witnesses their arrival and the shadows are often falling before they think of leaving the building. The guardians of our health have many duties to perform each day which we seldom think about. It may be said, with much of truth and little of fiction, that it is a pleasure to honor our helpers at this time, and in this humble way.

RAW FOOD AND COOKED FOODS We know not for how many generations man ate his food raw. However, we assure one and all that foods as well prepared, properly cooked and efficiently served as we have each day in our cafeteria would have made ancient man say a blessing with his meal. If one doubts the truth of what has been written above, one need but watch the speed of those cafeteria bound at 11:30 or any one of the lunch hours. We seldom say that we appreciate our cafeteria workers, but we really do appreciate you. V 11930'-; T went -three 7  f  THE TATLER 4-2 Qlass Officers Wood W. Wilson Class Secretary Treas.

Within these empty silent halls There echoes, soft, the day’s loud calls. A winging thrush sings from the sky, And birdlings chirp from nests on high; And in the eaves the hoot owls cry. As thru the trees the June winds sigh. Altho’ you find at break of dawn, Your steps to distant places drawn, Will you forget when you are gone These new brick walls, this trodden lawn ? —Anonymous Forty-one  Top Row: William Beiser, Virginia Beneke, Ray Borman, Ralph Bray field, Lydia Bruegman.

Jac son "Jack" came to Alton High last September after ten years of successful coaching experience divided between small colleges and large high schools of Illinois. Coach Jackson was hampered by a lack of seasoned material. The football season found only three lettermen on the squad. With the assistance of Coach Stage, Coach Jackson developed a speedy team toward the close of the season. The team, was as a whole, entirely too light to make the showing in the won column that the coaches deserved. Basketball offered even more difficulties than had football. Consistent and concerted efforts of the coach and his assistant gave us a good team but not a consistent winner. Track has been neglected for so long that this year has been spent in reviving a “track sense.” Next year watch our coach and our team. Coach James F. Stage Coach Stage came to us last fall from Doe Run, Missouri, where he had served as a regular faculty member plus the duties of athletic director. He assisted Coach Jackson in drilling the second football squad in fundamentals, and also taking charge of the second team in scrimmage. Stage's assistance in basketball and track has been as thorough and efficient as was his work on the gridiron. Sixtyone 7Birney Giberson Starting the season with a nucleus of but three letter men, Coach Jackson developed a fighting squad that made a name for itself. Although the actual percentage of games won and lost does not indicate a successful season, the fact that the boys were fighting an uphill battle against big odds the season's record speaks well for the team. Improving with each game, getting more and more experience, eliminating their greenness and un-familiarity with the game, struggling through defeat after defeat, and finally gaining confidence in themselves, the 1929 team ended the season in a blaze of glory. After several weeks of hard practice, Coach Jackson sent his group of small and unexperienced boys against the strong St. Charles, Mo., team. The Missouri boys trimmed our team by a Cook score of 21 to 0. Our boys fought hard but lack of weight and experience proved, as it usually does in football, very fatal. Our second game of the season proved to be somewhat different from the first game. The Oilers of Wood River found unexpected opposition and Cravens were held to a 6-6 score. Much improvement was shown in the play of our team and hopes of a very successful season were bright. This was our first conference game and our boys had plenty of fight, but lack of weight and punch at the needed times cost us the game. Our hopes took a tumble the next week when the fast and heavy Belleville team, scoring three touchdowns in the first quarter, defeated the Red and Gray gridders 21 to 0.Mahoney Schwartz A “jinx” seemed to be on us in the first periods of our battles. All of our opponents points thus far have been scored in the first half. Our fourth game for the season was another conference foe, Collinsville. With odds against us the Red and Gray boys fought hard only to lose again with a score of 13 to 0. We thought the “jinx” was gone when Collinsville failed to score in the first period. However the "jinx", or something like it, returned early in the second period and 6 points were scored against us. Before the second per iod ended Collinsville added seven more points for the final score. Another conference game was lost when the “Packers” from East Side trounced our boys 27 to 7- Yes, the “jinx” was present. Twenty points were McManus rolled up by East St. Louis in the first period. The Red and Gray's only tally came in the third period. We were the first team to score a touchdown against the Packers in the 1929 season. Doped to defeat us about 60 to 0 the Packers tried their reserves but were soon shown Nicolet the need of all their strength. Displaying surprising strength and at times outplaying their heavy rivals, the improving Red and Gray warriors held the Granite City eleven to a 7-6 score. Plenty of fight and courage was shown but the “jinx" was with us to stay. Again the first period proved fatal. Granites' only markers came in the first few minutes of play. Tough luck with such a “jinx." WE WIN! Hoorah! Yes sir, Jackson's gridders trimmed the Marquette football team 18 to 0. Improvement and how! StxCvtltree SOTIER The boys never looked like the Red and Gray team that had taken trimmings from our conference foes. The Red and Gray football team continued their well bah anced passing and plunging attacks that they had shown in the two previous games, but weakened at the fatal moment in our last conference game of the season and let another conference foe ease out a victory on them. The A. H. S. warriors scored two safeties, but were unable to overcome the “jinx” that permitted Edwardsville to score in the first period and were again defeated 7 to 4. Our last, but not least, contest of the season was the annual Thanksgiving game played in 5 inches of snow, the Red and Grayers were again the losers. The score in this game was 13 to 2. It was a good game with plenty of thrills. This Walker T HAYER was the first time Alton had scored on Western in three years. The "jinx"? Yes, it was there. However, the game was closer than the score indicated and Western was in danger of defeat until late in the final quarter when they scored their second touchdown with the aid of a “break” in ,, , Vedder the game. This game was played under the most adverse weather con-ditions and on a field that tested the nerve and moral fibre of every Red and Gray warrior. It is true that the field was as bad for our opponents as it was for us—yet it seemed that our fumbles came when it cost us a touchdown. Western had enjoyed a much more favorable season, as far as games won was concerned, than we. Therefore we entered the Turkey Day game “doped” to be an easy loser, but proved to be a real contender for the city gridiron championship. Sixty-four  THE White It is any easy proposition to work up a great deal of pep, enthusiasm, and school spirit when your team is a winner. It is a different story when your team is getting bumped. In the athletic season of the current school year our “pep” didn’t take the come-back with the volume it should have. There is no secret to the fact that we have a hard athletic battle before us for next school year. We, as pupils, are likely to forget that our moral support on and off the field is a help to all those concerned in athletics. Not many boys want to be "spongers" in athletics, and when they realize the school is actually behind them they give to the game all that they have. As a school let's all do our best to give a good athletic standing to A. H. S.

Early in the football season Coach Jackson realized the need for a Freshman squad. Mr. Hainline volunteered to assume this responsibility, and his offer was readily accepted. Seventeen Freshmen responded to the call for a Freshman squad. Thirteen of the original seventeen boys stayed out during the entire football season. Coach Hainline drilled the boys in the fundamentals of the game until they had well mastered this part of the game. In the only regular game, with the Western C team, the young Red and Gray warriors managed to hold their opponents to a tie game. Sixtysewn 7First Row: Harry Haynes, Stanley Edsall, Crowe Reed.

Throughout the entire basket-ball and football seasons, as well as at our pep meet' ings some of this group of inspiring leaders always furnished the much needed enthusiasm and pep. They introduced some new and inspiring yells, and several flashy uniforms. At games and at pep meetings they never failed to receive a hearty response from the student body. So let's give them three big rousing cheers! Yea Alton Yea Hi Yea-Yea-Alton High! Pete McPherson Pete McPherson has held the student managership during his entire high school career and the loss to the Athletic Department will be a great one when he is graduated next January. Pete has worked two years for Coach Miller and one year for Coach Jackson. To both coaches he has proved an invaluable aid. His duties include looking after uniforms and supplies and caring for the athletic field and gym floor. Needless to say there are many other minor tasks which Pete has performed willingly.

Season Review Although the 1929 and 1930 basketball team rated below the football team, they managed to develop into a fast and fairly strong five before the end of the season. Coach Jackson found that he would have to start from the ground and build up, for only four members of last year’s first squad returned this season. Only one member of the basket' ball squad had played as a regular last season—Brandstetter. The Red and Gray five’s first encounter was the fast DeMolay five. Playing hard and close basketball the Red and Gray quintet got off on the right foot and defeated the DeMolay five 28 to 26. This game was played in the local Y. M. C. A. Gym and did not give Coach Jackson a fair chance to size up his boys. The DeMolay team scored all of their points in the second half. Otir first conference foe was Edwardsville. The game was played at Edwardsville and many followers witnessed the opening conference game. It was hard fought throughout, but our boys took the short end of the bill and lost 10 to 15. East St. Louis was responsible for our next defeat winning 21 to 16. This game was nip and tuck through-out but in the last two minutes of play the Packers broke loose and scored three baskets to win. The first game in our gym was with our conference foe, Collinsville. The game was a slow one and consequently not exciting. Alton was without the fight usually displayed and lost 21 to 10.Wood River quintet sent us for another spill when they defeated us 17 to 28. In the last half Alton failed to keep up the pace which they had set in the first half. Our next conference tilt was at Belleville. Playing the usual hard fighting game but always the under-dog the Red and Gray quintet lost it's fifth straight conference game by the score 19 to 9. Western was our next foe. Playing unusual basketball mixed with fine passing and splendid floor work the Red and Gray quintet forced the Cadets into two overtime periods before they were defeated in the best game of the season thus far by the score 25 to 26. 43 to 21 was the final score by which Granite City High School defeated the Red and Gray five. East St. Louis was the only conference team to taste the sting of defeat by Alton! Alton trounced the Packers to the tune of 19 to 16. Western, too, found it tough going in their return game. The Cadets were defeated in their second and final encounter with the Red and Gray quintet by the score of 20 to 19. Coach Jackson was well pleased with the progress and the showing made by the team and has good prospects for the season 1930-1931. He loses only one member of his 1930 squad.

Since all conference matches of ours have been played, but not all schools having played their conference games, we know only the approximate standing of A. H. S. which will be about third place. Belleville and Collinsville were the only conference foes to take both singles and doubles sets from us. Our team also won non-conference games against Edwardsville, East St. Louis, and Wood River. The tennis coach was Mr. Hainline and he deserves a share of credit in our success with the racquet. Tennis was a winning sport with us in 1928 and Hainline set out to repeat that year's success. A tournament was arranged among the boys and the four with the best records were to compose the tennis squad. The survivors who formed the tennis squad were the Campbell brothers—Eugene and Enos Webster Brainerd and Charles Nisbett. The members of the squad were interchanged and no two men always formed the "doubles” team. 1931 Tennis prospects are bright. New material is certain to come forward and our four lettermen of this year will be back. Results of the season were: OPPONENT Singles Edwardsville Granite City Belleville Collinsville E. St. Louis Wood River Madison WINNER Alton Alton Belleville Collinsville E. St. Louis Alton Alton OPPONENT Doubles—Edwardsville Granite City Belleville Collinsville E. St. Louis Wood River Madison WINNER Edwardsville Alton Belleville Collinsville Alton Alton Alton TRACK Due to a general lack of interest A. H. S. had not possessed a track squad for two years. This year Coaches Jackson and Stage experienced a fair turnout for track. Since it takes three or four years to build up a track squad, this year was spent largely in drilling fundamentals. Two of this year’s squad were experienced men James Glen and Nugent Wedding. Glen in the half-mile and mile runs and Wedding in the high jump have placed in nearly every meet in which they took part. Ellis Smith also placed in the Wood River meet in the pole vault. This is Smith's first year on the track squad. Other members of the squad who participated in at least one meet are: Frank Cantrill, Howard Karns, Kenneth Mundell, Melvin McManus, Carol Roper, Franklin Thayer, and Virgil Jackson. The events entered at the various track meets were: 100, 220, and 440 yard dashes; half mile and mile runs, high jump and pole vault, discuss, shot put, and javelin. The coaches are satisfied with this year's revival of track but they want a big turnout next year. Glen, Wedding, Roper, and Thayer graduate in June and their places must be filled. 1930 V 7  Seventy"two SN0I1VZINV9H0  LEE YARLOYY A ETEO TOH ED.

The Alton High School Chapter of the National Honor Society was chartered in the spring of 1927. This Society is unique in that it does not recognize some special talent, but requires a high standard of achievement in every phase of high school life. The faculty votes upon the students when they are nearing the end of their 4-1 semester. Only fifteen percent of the 4T's, all of whom must stand in the upper third of the class in scholarship, are eligible for election. Beside this requirement in scholarship, the candidate must be of a high character, be an outstanding leader, and must have rendered commendable service to his school. Seventy-eight students have been elected to the Honor Society since its establishment here, of which number twenty-three were active this year.

This year, the fifth of its existance, the club was composed of twenty-nine members. To aid in the development of the dramatic ability of its members, one-act plays or short sketches presented at the regular meetings were directed, produced, and played by the students. The club interested the entire student body by presenting some of these plays in the assembly. The Dramatic Club's main work of the year is the presentation of a play, which this year was the three-act melodrama, “Seven Keys to Baldpate,” by George M. Cohen, presented on April 11, 1930, under the direction of Miss Mildred Rutledge. Seventy-saxn 7z fn THE TATTLER Boy's Cabinet First Row: T. G.

The organization of this group of boys was completed in 1928 under the sponsorship of Mr. Wood. The purpose of the cabinet is to serve the school. It consists of two boys from each class beginning with the 1-2 class. It is their duty to aid in giving the freshmen a good start at the beginning of each semester. The members help at all school functions acting as ushers at concerts, commencements, baccalaureates, and taking tickets at all athletic games. Stanley Edsall, Enos Campbell, Thomas Harris, Cyrus Fischer, and Haskell Vessell are members of this group whose pictures do not appear.

The Auxiliary Council of Alton High School was organized in 1927 under the supervision of Miss Carolyn Wempen. The motto and purpose of the Council is Service. It is the duty of each of the fourteen members to do anything in her power by which she will promote the spirit of fellowship among the girls and further activities for the benefit of the school. One of the outstanding duties of the Council is the welcoming of the incoming freshmen, acquainting them with the school and making their early High School life more enjoyable.

The Boy's Glee Club for the year 1930 has more than upheld the splendid reputation set by the clubs in previous years, under the direction of Captain C. S. Porter, who was chosen to fill the vacancy left by Mr. Conn. Many enjoyable programs, consisting of a large variety of numbers, speaks well for this popular organization. The club lost a large number of boys during the year, and this will afford an opportunity for those interested in the work to try out next year. Much credit is due Rose Marie Hallam and Dorothy Dodge, accompanists. Dorothy took up the work of accompanist the second semester.

The Girl’s Glee Club is very active in school activities as well as outside appearances. The club has given several concerts in the school assemblies and has appeared before the teachers’ meeting in E. St. Louis. The club also sang in the Music Festival in E.

The objects of the club are to encourage sports, manlike conduct and fair play in all contests in which Alton High School may engage, to formulate and enforce rules governing the display of letters and athletic awards, and to encourage other boys to come out for all branches of athletics. This organization has given several banquets and outings during the semester. Eighty-three 7First Row Gerold Turner, Hugh Harris, James O'Neil, George C. Ritcher, Edward Fischer, George Butler.

Time—2:45, Any school day. Place—Alton High School. Second floor. I was at peace with the world. My science grade had been gratifying, if not highly complimentary. Before me stretched the hall, that peaceful haven of gum-chewers with its motley mass of cosmetics, teachers and high heels. I plunged into the crowd with enthusiasm for there is something exhilarating about walking in the halls. Perhaps it is because it tests your physical ability to a great degree. From the beginning my feet commenced to be trodden upon. But I didn’t mind that—it is taken for granted that the feet are to be aching after the destination is reached. I was hurried along, half bolstered and half thrown. My shins became constant targets for stray feet, while my hip bones—but let’s not mention that. My books were thrown from me forcibly several times and I made humiliating searches for lost papers under heels of various sizes and descriptions. But worst of all were the elbows! My ribs being of a ticklish nature endured many well-aimed elbow thrusts, invented purposely for the occasion. In fact it seems that several people make a business of elbow-jostling. It really comes in very handy when one is in a hurry. I finally reached the end of the hall; gone was my amiability, I was worn out, fatigued by the long, hard journey. My tale is ended, but a word to the wise is sufficient: In choosing between reaching a room at the end of the hall via the corridor, and walking around the building to reach it, take the LATTER. Granville Lemonds One Hundred-one 7THE MY BURGLAR I was wakened in the middle of the night by the sound of a muffled breathing under my bed. At once I realized that it was a burglar who was waiting for the chance to rob the house. I lay there trembling with fear, not daring to move a muscle, lest at any moment the man jump and attack me. Feverishly I racked my brain for some means of escape. I had nothing but the bare pillow beneath my head with which to protect myself. If I made any noise to call assistance it would probably be my last. All the burglar stories I had ever heard came back to me now, especially the ones which ended disastrously. Knowing that my only hope lay in running for the door, I moved cautiously over to the edge of the bed and peeped carefully over, but the sight of a man’s foot so unnerved me that I fell back on the bed quivering with fright. My heart pounded furiously in my throat. My terror was increased when the bed began to rock slowly back and forth, as if it were resting insecurely on some giant’s back. The boards creaked under my head, and I closed my eyes so that I might not see that terrible form bending over me with those awful hands ready to strangle the life out of my body. Then as my senses were leaving me, a bell resounded through the house, and I heard a reassuring voice calling “All-aboard, All-aboard.” Great heavens! I had forgotten that I was in the upper berth of a C. C. C. and St. L. Pullman! L. T. Turpin WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF: Ray Bunyan couldn't see Juanita Otis? Miss Bartholomew grew to be six feet? Rosemary Swain was on time? Mr. Myers used Melto Reducing Cream? Nobody ever graduated? Roger Sloat quit coughing? Butter Knight became speechless? U. S. History was a selective course? English tests were illegal? Tenth hour was held during activities period? Susan Olmstead was a shy little girl? Wrigley’s went out of business? Kerr's charged 15c for marshmallow nut sundae’s with, chocolate ice cream? A. H. S. installed the shift system? Miss Mulliner drove 60 miles per? Some of the teachers had a flat tire during their regular noon hour joy-rides? Mr. Smith could not teach Commercial Law? The cafeteria would serve lunches free? Mr. Turpin would lose his comb? if X fit One Hundred'three 7THE LOVER WITH THE CRACKED VOICE A sentimental melodrama in one act. Characters (in the order of their appearance) The fair Clarissa The faithful lover, Ralph Scene: The living room of Clarissa’s home, about the late sixties. Clarissa, near center, on her settee, day dreaming. Clarissa: Oh, the hours pass so slowly, meseems 'tis years from dawn to sunset, and the weeks—truly, they creep along so feebly, each is to me a century. Oh, my Ralph, my true love, will thou ever return to thy loving Clarissa! Dark was the day my father sent thee out because thou dared differ with him! Oh, my hero! To go through thick and thin because you dared cross my powerful father when he declared that lime pop causes indigestion! (With rather a wail) But now I know not which way to turn! To drink lime pop or not to drink lime pop: That is the question; Whether 'tis nobler in one's self to suffer The pangs and hiccups of bad indigestion— Or to take ten swallows of water against the swarm of hiccups And by opposing, end them! (She rises while declaiming this, all of which is said and done in a very solemn, oratorical manner. At the end she sits down and pauses a moment.) Clarissa: What a wonderful day 'twill be when Ralph returns to me! My ideal will be so happy when he comes back with the proof that lime soda pop does not cause indigestion! ‘Tis time indeed, for his arrival home—(relapsing into her first attitude) Oh, how soon will you come? You are so tall, so straight, so handsome, and thy voice is so sweet and always tender. Oh that voice! The making of my darling. When he whispered sweet nothings in my ear— what could have been so heavenly? (Starts) What was that? Surely not a mouse? (At the thought she screams, climbs up and stands on her settee, then screams again. As soon as she is quiet, the door opens and the hand-some heroic Ralph enters. He stretches out his arms to sweet Clarissa, who swiftly removes herself from the settee and rushes to him). Clarissa: At last, my hero! You have come back to me from the cruel world. Ah, what a sweet romance! You shall be mine and I shall be yours, my darling with the tender voice! Speak to me, my sweetheart! Ralph: (with a cracked voice like a saw going through a hickory nut) Clarissa! My own! Clarissa: (Alarmed at his voice) That voice! It can't be yours! Ralph: (sadly, and with rasping cough) It is! One Hundred-four v, 1930; THE TATTLER Clarissa: (going into hysterics) Our romance ruined! Oh, to think that my knight errant should return to me with a voice like that, when if you would smoke “Old Golds" those honey-smooth cigarettes, you would have not a cough in a car load—not a bark in a billion! Oh, Ralph, they would ease those rasping vocal chords and keep for you my love everlasting! (she recovers from that, then sternly) Go, villain, betake thyself from my presence! No man with such a voice shall ever be my honored spouse! Ah, woeful day when first I met you—to think that you should come to this! (Hysterical again) I have learned my cruel lesson! Nevermore shall I love him who does not smoke those gloriously mild “Old Golds”! (Clarissa bursts into uncontrolled sobbing and Ralph breaks into loud, harsh coughing, and the curtain falls.) Ray Bunyan: “If you could see my heart, you'd find your name written upon it." Juanita Otis: “Yes, but I'm afraid your heart would look like a hotel register." “I woke to look upon a face, Silent, white and cold; Oh, friend, what agonies I felt Can never half be told. We'd lived together but a year, Too soon it seemed to me. My waking thoughts had been of one Who now to sleep had dropped. 'Twas hard to realize, oh, friend My Ingersall had stopped." Miss Cates: (In U. S. History) “How many wars has the U. S. been engaged in?" Reiley Ashlock: “Five." Miss Cates: “Enumerate them.” Ashlock: One, two, three, four, five.” Mr. Stage (explaining gravity): “The earth is attracted to the sun; you are attracted to the sun." Mary Henley (sleepily): “Whose son?” I went to the movies tomorrow; I took the front seat at the back, I fell from the pit to the gallery And hurt the front of my back. “I is"—began Ben Dorsey. “I am," quickly corrected Miss Paul. “I am the ninth letter in the alphebet,” finished Ben. One HunJred-fii e Fred Hoppe: “Do you make life size enlargements of photographs?” Ben Kopp: “Yes sir. That's our business.” Fred Hoppe: “Enlarge this one for me. It's a snapshot of a whale. Weir Brown: “Sir, your beacon has ceased to function." Motorman: “Sir?” Weir: “Your illuminator, I say, is shrouded in unmitigated oblivion. Motorman: “Beg pardon?” Weir B.: "The effulgence of your radiator has evanesced.” Motorman: “My dear fellow—" Freshie: “Hey, mister, your lights are out." We editors may dig and toil Until our finger tips are sore. But some poor fish is sure to say “I’ve heard that joke before.” If a joke is labeled with your name, Don’t take it to heart and act insane, Wouldn't it be awful if we never did smile? Why, that’s what helps make our book worth while! So don't get sore if we “pop” you one, For, as we’ve said before, they’re only in fun. 7oWERTISEMEm THE TATLER Alphabetic Index of Advertisers PAGE Alton Auto Co.......................129 Alton Baking and Catering Co........119 Alton Box Board and Paper Co........126 Alton Brick Co......................128 Alton Evening Telegraph. .118 Alton Floral Co.....................131 Alton Gas and Electric Co...........Ill Alton Laundry Co....................128 Alton Mineral Springs Hotel.........121 Alton Printing House........ .116 Alton Tire Sales....................127 Barth's Pharmacy....................129 Barnard and Williamson..............117 Bauer-Siglock-Cope..................131 Berger, Henry L., Jeweler...........129 Black's Confectionery...............122 Booth's Jewelry................... .115 Complimentary.......................118 Dee Floral Co.......................129 Degenhardt Pharmacy.................131 Dixcel Service......................Ill Eagle’s Dry Cleaners................129 Eat Shop............................117 Ernst Electric Shop.................127 Eye Sight Survey Corp...............113 Fairy Inn...........................123 Faulstich’s.........................131 First Trust and Savings Bank........113 Flacheneker, Chas.

So far as is known, it is the only specimen ever taken by a white man. They used the famous Western Lubaloy .30-’06 cartridge with 220-grain Soft-Point bullet. The remarkable accuracy and effectiveness of Lubaloy high-power cartridges have made them the choice of many important scientific and big game expeditions. The same kind of accuracy is available in Western Lubaloy .22’s. They shoot straight, hit hard and— Won’t Rust Your Gun Lubaloy .22's keep your gun as bright as new and make cleaning unnecessary! . . .

To— The Graduates of 1930 The Benefits of Education are real. “What the World needs are people who can observe, think, and analyze.” Few employers have either the time or ability to train the minds of young people. The custom is to assign them to routine jobs which offers little or no opportunity for development. lacking the mental discipline which is part of a good High School course, the young man and woman are unprepared for advancement. In addition to material advantages, a complete High School education offers valuable cultural gains. It adds to the appreciation and enjoyment of life by introducing one to good books, and by opening paths of thought in all branches of knowledge which can later be explored on one’s own initiative. I strongly urge every boy and girl to whom school work is not distasteful and painful to continue in school. B. L. Van Preter Pres, of C. A. Van Preter Mercantile Co.
