Foreword As we leave Alton High School f or ever and ta e upon ourselves the responsibility of life, the fond memories of our school days go with us. However, sad to relate, these memories of school life will fade as the years pass by. But o’er the lapse of time and scene, the Tatler shall bridge the gap and bring bac memories of the days so cherished by us. May your joy in reading this boo always be as great as ours has been in making it. The Staff o--------------------------------------1} Dedication As an expression of our appreciation of the work GEORGE C. R1TCHER has done for the students of Alton High School in twenty years of faith-ful service, we dedicate this edition of of the Tatler. The Tatler Staff TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTV-ONECrowe Reed August 12, 1911 September 7, 1930 Richard Branch December 26, 1916 November 12, 1930 In Memoriam Human friendship is one of the strongest ties that holds the many and various peoples of our land in harmonious groups. Life would mean but little to us if we were without friends. These two boys had legions of friends. They were in turn friends to all about them. There is a second friendship: spiritual. Our Master has called home these friends of ours, and endowed them with that everlasting friendship with Him. May we all so live that when our time comes to leave this world that we may enter into that everlasting friendship with God, and with those who have gone before us.

THE TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE Fifty'tivoAthleticsCoach Jackson In his second year of coaching the Red and Gray warriors “Jack" has had much more success than that of his first year with us. It has been our luck for four years to graduate our lettermen in all sports. However, the majority of the 1930 football men will be back for another season, and several of them for two seasons. With a light and inexperienced gridiron squad the season proved more of a success than it had for two or three years. The basketball season was the best for three years and only tough breaks kept us from the top of the conference standing. Track has picked up as a sport with us and we predict a still better showing in another year. Assistant Coach Stage "Jim" Stage was again "Jack's" assistant and acquitted himself well. He was out at all times to help the team and the coach speed onward to the best of results. During the time Jack was ill Stage fitted into the scheme of affairs and piloted the Red Birds to a basketball victory. As usual Jim had the drilling of the seconds in both of the major sports and succeeded in keeping his warriors working in co-operation with the first stringers. Fifty-threeOrr White Cook ■rvr Holmes Delfo Football 1930 The football season was not at all what we had hoped for in the way of percentage, but by the end of the season we did have a team that we were proud of. Coach Jackson faced as difficult a task this year as he did in 1929. A squad of eighty boys answered the annual call for football, but only three men were regular players of past seasons. Much of Coach Jackson's time was spent in drilling on the fundamentals of the game. With the help of Coach Stage, Coach Jackson had at the end of the season a team that won for itself the reputation of a fighting eleven. The nickname of "Red Birds” was officially adopted at the beginning of the season. "Red Birds” will apply to all our athletic teams hereafter. ALTON AT ST. CHARLES The “Red Birds” journeyed to St. Charles to open the 1930 season. This also marked the playing of night football for our men. Due to St. Charles’ inexperience with the rules of night football, by wearing white helmets, Alton could not distinguish between helmet and football and lost 60. Fift' 'four Kodros Winter Gary Harris Eisenreich ALTON AT WOOD RIVER Wood River was our first conference foe. The Oilers put up their usual strong fight against the “Red Birds” and through a lucky break managed to eek out a tie. Although the “Red Birds” were classed as the under dogs the Oilers were more than joyous to have it end as it did in 1929. The score was 6-6. BELLEVILLE AT ALTON Our first home game was with another conference foe, Belleville. This game marked the opening of "flood light" football in Alton. The “Red Birds” lost this encounter 12-0. COLLINSVILLE AT ALTON The following week Alton played Collinsville here. The Red and Gray warriors entered the game as they have many times in the past, the under dogs. But with the fighting spirit which the “Red Birds" showed against Collinsville they held the invaders to the second tied score of the season 6-6. ALTON AT EAST ST. LOUIS The “Red Birds" hopped a truck and journeyed to East St. Louis to furnish the Packers competition for the afternoon. But it happened to be one of those days when our usual fight had been left at home and the "Red Birds” returned after losing 27-0. Fiftvfive Campbell Bacus Haynes Karns Schuessler GRANITE CITY AT ALTON The “Red Birds” were still under the effects of the beating of the Packers and Granite City pounded us until the final whistle set the score at 19-0. This game was not played under the usual lights but was a daytime game. ALTON AT ED WARDS VILLE Edwardsville was the next conference foe doped to have an easy time with the “Red Birds.” But the Red and Gray warriors had regained their fight and gave the Tigers a real battle. The game was one of the best of the season but when victory was in sight, Edwardsville tossed across the much cherished chalk line and Alton was forced to be satisfied with a 13-13 tie. MADISON AT ALTON Our final conference game was with Madison, a newcomer in the conference. The Red Birds defeated Madison 26-0 to gain their first conference victory of the season. The game was played under the flood lights. Fifty-sixWESTERN vs. ALTON A crowd, estimated at 1500, braved the cold winds to witness the Red Birds' defeat at the hands of the strong Western eleven. The field was covered with snow which put the lighter Red and Gray team at a disadvantage. The Cadets scored early in the first period after two passes netted forty yards and placed the ball on Alton's five-yard line. The Red Birds’ defense tightened and Western's try for the extra point was stopped. Ineffective punting by Holmes kept the ball in the Red Birds' territory, but Western was held scoreless until the third period when several strong plays took the ball deep into Alton's territory. After holding Western on the three-yard line, the Red Birds weakened and another six points for Western resulted. Western's place kick went wild and the score stood 12-0 as the final period started. Holmes’ punting was improved and was forcing Western back. Schuessler smashed off tackle for nine yards placing the ball on Western’s one-yard line. Karns hit center for a touchdown, scoring the first touchdown against Western in three years. Schuessler's line plunge for the extra point fell short. The Red Birds were marching down the field for another score when the game ended 12-6. Alton loses four letter men from this year's team; Captain Cook, Haynes, Winter and Gary.

The four people above were selected from that number by a secret committee, chosen by Mr. Hanna. At all times on the athletic field and at pep meetings our cheer leaders did their best to instill pep and enthusiasm in the players and spectators. Ellis Smith Smitty became student manager in the athletic department at midyear when Pete McPherson graduated. He assisted Pete in the managership work the first semester. Smitty had Tracy Delfo as assistant the second semester, and as Smitty was on the basketball squad the assistant was given a good workout. Delfo gave a very creditable account of himself in this work. The duties connected with this work include taking care of uniforms and all athletic supplies, as well as caring for the athletic field and gym floor. There are many other minor tasks.

Basketball 1930'1931 Season’s Review After losing only one member of the regular team of 1929 and 1930, Coach Jackson had reasons to look upon the season of 1930 and '31 as a good year. Larry Hale's return to the center position strengthened the offensive power of our quintet. For a number of years Alton High has not been very successful in developing a winning team, and the spirit of fight seemed to have lost its prestige but in our team of 1930 and ’31 we have found the old spirit returning. Our boys were out to win in every game, and our fighting spirit made other teams think twice before predicting the outcome of a game. Belleville was our first conference foe. After trailing in the first half our boys showed their quality by coming back in the last half and defeating Belleville, score 21-19. Anyone who missed that game certainly consider it a loss for it was nick and tuck from beginning to end. Wood River was the next team of the conference to be defeated by our five. Again we displayed the old fighting spirit by coming from behind in the first half to defeat Wood River, score 27-11. For the next several games our boys seemed to be unable to click and failed to win a game until we encountered Western. This was another thriller. Alton High won after an overtime period, score 26-24. This was a hard fought game from start to finish. k J Z. THE TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE £ SixtyUpon our next encounter with Belleville our boys were defeated in the last few seconds of play, score 15-16. It was a hard game to lose but it was a clean-played and interesting game. After taking the short end of a 24 to 15 score in our first conference game, with Granite City, we were again defeated by a score of 31 to 35. Our boys seemed unable to get started until the second quarter. Then we gave Granite City plenty to worry about. Our next game was called a big upset but it also showed the quality of boys we had on our team. We led Collinsville, one of the teams considered as champion of our conference, throughout the entire game and defeated them 26-25 This showing redeemed our boys for the first showing against Collinsville in which we were defeated by the largest score of the season, 42-17. East St. Louis was our next victim. We defeated East Side by a score of 24-16. This was a very good game and again showed that our boys could play good ball. East Side had defeated us the first time by a score of 34 to 29. Western again received defeat at the hands of Alton High by a score of 37-18. This was a very easy victory considering the previous score of 26-24 in our first game. Coach Jackson had great expectations from our boys this season, and several times he was greatly pleased by their showing. The conference this year was a very tight race and ended in a three-way tie. Alton High deserves some credit for our boys defeated two of the teams composing the tie. Coach Jackson loses three members of his 1931 squad—Hale, Brewer, and Oetken.

Coach. Second Roue Enos Campbell, Charles Nisbett, Webster Brainerd, Eugene Campbell, Mr. Hainline, Coach. GIRLS’ TENNIS—FALL OF 1930 In the fall Tennis schedule the Girls’ team, coached by Miss McCausland, set a rapid pace but were nosed out of first place by Belleville. Our girls came through the season with only one defeat in the singles and ditto in the doubles. Belleville lost no games in either division. Alton’s loss in both singles and doubles was in the first game of the fall season and naturally our stock sank rapidly at the time. However, Coach McGiusland gave the girls a new set of rules for practice work and the results were surprising. BOYS' TENNIS—SPRING OF 1931 The same crew of boys, who a year ago gave Tennis a revival as a live sport in Alton High School, have been at the racquet game again. Mr. Hainline is coach. This year Enos Campbell has taken care of the singles matches. He has lost only one set to Braun of Belleville. The said Braun placed second in the State meet. We are grooming Enos for conference champion next year. The doubles have been played by Eugene Campbell and Charles Nisbett. We defeated Edwardsville, Belleville, Granite City, Wood River, and Madison. We lost to Collinsville and East St. Louis. We finished the conference schedule in second and third places in singles and doubles, respectively. GIRLS' TENNIS-SPRING OF 1931 Our girls doubles have not seen as successful a season this spring as they had last fall. They have, however, gone 50-50 on their schedule—winning from East St. Louis, Granite City, and Wood River, but losing to Collinsville, Edwardsville, and Belleville. Marguerite Turner and Helen Beall compose our doubles team. Mary Lib McKinney gave Alton a tie with Collinsville, and Belleville for singles championship. Lib went through the season with wins over Belleville, Edwardsville, East St. Louis, Granite City, and Wood River -losing the one set of games to Collinsville. Sixty-two TRACK TEAM Bottom Row: Orr, Stolp, Gary, Delfo, Hale, Cantrill, Wilson. Top Row: Kodros, Byford, Karns, Beebe, Schuessler, Coach Jackson. Track, Track as a sport with us still remains at a low ebb. For a number of years practically no school interest has been shown in this sport. However, last school year Coach Jackson put forth the preliminary movement toward rebuilding or building a new track squad, and reviving a “track" sense among students of Alton High. List year "Jack" hoped to do enough in track that 1931 would produce some winners. Some results have been achieved this year—Hale having won first place in the broad jump at Edwardsville in a quadrangular meet. Hale also won second place in the high jump and third place in the discus throw. In the triangular meet at Granite City a second place was won by Ellis Smith in the pole vault. Wood River and Granite City were the other schools in this meet. All of the remainder of the track squad have participated in two or more meets this year. We have had entrants in the following track events: 100, 220, 440 yard dashes; the half mile and mile runs; the high and broad jump; in the pole vault; javelin and discus throws; and in the shot put. This June will see the end of track career for Hale, Smith, Stolp, Gary, and Byford. This leaves a fair number, around which next year Coach Jackson hopes to build a bigger and better track squad. THE TATLER OF NINETE: Sixty-three Test of Character The coarse and uncultured individual is likely to gloat over a victory and sulk over a defeat. If his team wins, he scoffs at his friends who supported the losers. He engages in the irritating practice of “rubbing it in." If his team loses, he is surly and ill-tempered, abusing the defeated players or questioning the fairness of the contest. The person of careful social training and genuine refinement shows the marks of superiority in such a time of victory or defeat. If victory is his lot, he is graceful and considerate, saying or doing nothing that could wound the feelings of those who are suffering disappointment. If he is the loser, he takes the misfortune calmly and good naturedly, for he has learned that poise is the very essence of good breeding. Thus it is that a contest or a crisis furnishes a test of character. It is a test of social training. In many cases feeling runs high. When the result, so long awaited, becomes known, there will, of course, be a feeling of exultation in the hearts of those who find themselves on the winning side, and there will be bitter disappointment for those who lose. But, whether a winner or a loser, you can demonstrate the quality of your character by conducting yourself in the presence of your late opponents with courtesy, moderation and poise. f OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY —Selected Sixty-fourOrganizationsJEANNE WEBE i SOITORWCHUT BUS!Ness.

Rational Honor Society No honor conferred by Alton High School excels that of membership in the National Honor Society, and few achievements during the student's high school career retain their merit in later life as does this one. Founded upon the principles of scholarship, character, leadership, and service, this organization strives to uphold the ideals of the school. Each semester the faculty elects as members of the organization not more than fifteen percent of the 4-1 class, all of whom must rank in the upper third of their class scholastically. However, this requirement is subordinate to the others in estimating the eligibility of the student. Since the Honor Society was founded four years ago, one hundred three have become members.

Slide, rules are used either as checks or numerical calculations involving very large or intricate ex-pressions or for the actual performing of such where speed as well as accuracy is desired. The rules are correct to the first three places in a number and the simple adjusting of a rule is a time saver on these operations.

Jerry: "We fell out.” Granville: “I saw a sign in a hardware store today, ‘Cast Iron Sinks.’ As though everyone wasn't wise to that."

Class Prophecy The Alton High School decided that in order to prove its greatness it would be necessary to keep records of the deeds that her graduates were doing. When the class of 1931 returned to its Alma Mater in 1941 for its decennial banquet the following people had accomplished these distinguished positions in their life’s work. Wilma Moore is serving as bookkeeper and stenographer at the One Minute Lunch Room on College Avenue. Rudy Fisher is pastor of the Congregational Church at Brighton, 111. Ray Borman has become a highly respected dog catcher in New York. Willanette Groves is an electrocutionist—(well-er-maybe we haven’t spelled it right.) Lloyd Alldredge has made the most of his talents and is one of our leading poets of the day. Harriet Koehne, having always sympathized with Latin students, has become a publisher of Latin “ponies.” Harlan Metcalfe is indeed flourishing as one of the city’s best garbage collectors. Rose Rosenthal has become a well-known concert violinist. Edward Fischer is still bringing laughs by cartooning Mutt and Jeff in the place of his uncle Bud Fischer. Elwood Cox has become the chief instructor of the Ned Wayburne School of Dancing. Evelyn Waggoner is rapidly gaining fame as a tester of Beauty Rest Mattresses. Mike Winter, scorning warmer climes, has become a fur trader in Alaska. Willa Wiseman is teaching students how to be nonchalant in embarrassing moments. Viola Wessel has become an understudy to “One-Eyed Conley." Maurice Wade, a peanut vender, has become a well-known character around town. Clarence Herndon has just refused the position of President of the United States because there is no chance for advancement. f{inetytight  Lelia Springman and Ethel Dillow are hostesses to the “Pep it Up" night club in New York. Rosemary Swain is winning over many an audience as a contortionist. Leila Apple is a well liked English teacher. She does not believe in giving tests or having the students give book reports. Robert Mortland is a renowned member of the bar. The three Smiths, Comfort, Mabel and Hilda have organized a research society for all people having the name Smith, in order to look up their “family trees." Henry Coffler is running a grocery in Grafton, Illinois. Marie Weissenfluh has become a highly respected nurse. Elizabeth Wright is indeed on the road to fame as a writer of pantomines. Eleanor Warner having made good use of her talent, has put her name on Broadway as a toe dancer. Melvin McManus is playing in comedies in Hollywood under the direction of Granville Lemonds. J. W. Newland is a famous and notorious “Bookie.” John Oetken has truly come into his own as a chemistry professor. Marjorie Muessel is well settled in a cozy little cottage. George Russo and Earl Turley have joined the Jewish navy. Marguerite Turner has become famous as the wife of “Big Bill" Tilden. Austin Leady is settled as office "boy” for the firm of Hunka Dunka O'Connell. Jesse Bryant has achieved fame as a banjo player in Duke Ellington's Orchestra. Lester Drew is thrilling huge crowds as a tight rope walker in Robbin's Circus. Dorothy Bushnell has indeed taken her place as the society queen of Washington, D. C. Albert Doerr as a barber gives a shave and a haircut for six bits. Evelyn Huish is the girls gym instructor at Pinkneyville. Charles Stolp as an orator rivals even that great man called Webster. Erma Vogel has become a very efficient stenographer. Virgil Foster is one of the leading musical critics of the day. Marjorie Stamper as a model is a “great” success. Mike Waide has attained the high position of "Cheese of Police" of Dog Town. Virgil Jackson is coaching the baseball team at the "House of David.” Charles Byford and Maurice Goring have become the two leading Barkers in the BarnunvBailey Circus. Dorothy Jackson has taken the position of Senator representing Illinois. Cale Walker at the present time is contending for the World's Heavy Weight Championship. Jimmy Walker has succeeded one of his relatives as mayor of New York. THE TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE linetynineRobert Wadlow February 22, 1918 Alton 7 feet, 4 inches, 272 lbs. Sterling La Marsh December 21, 1915 Grafton 4 feet, 2 inches, 67 lbs. Randolph Austin May 27, 1913 Jerseyville 6 feet, 2 inches, 240 lbs. “Our Boys” Austin came to us this year from Godfrey. He was a member of the football squad and despite his weight he made much progress during the season. We hope he “plows thru" next fall. La Marsh came to us from Roosevelt Junior High this year. His previous experience as a yell leader plus his size, won him a place on our group of cheer leaders. Wadlow came to East Junior High last fall. He has become so much a part of our building that we have answered the query—“Will Robert have his picture in the Tatler”— with a “Yes." Staff Appreciation The 1931 Tatler Staff desires to thank everyone who has helped to make this book a success. Special mention goes to Viola Wessel, Mike Winter, Howard Kestner, Hurbert Knight, and Granville Lemonds. Ben Dorsey was made a member of the Tatler staff late in April. Since that time Ben has been of real service to our book, and he deserves much credit for what he has done. One Hundred Correspondence from Two Boys Dear Mamie: Agnes just dashed over and told me about you having that trouble with your eyes. You have no idea, dearie, how sorry I am. I’ll write this slow so you can read it, because I know it'll hurt your eyes to read fast. Me and Jim was driving over to West Alton the other night. And-ah, my dear— the radiator busted! Busted! Just think, and after all the money Jim just spent on those gold inlays! Well, we ain’t went nowhere since. Jim doesn’t care to go anywhere. We just sit home nights now and listen to the radio—but we’ll be over some night next week and play bridge, I mean, of course, if you want us to. Agnes, dearie, here are some practical driving hints for you since you’ve started learning to drive: Never forget to throw out your clutch. You won’t need it anyway. Always drive with the emergency brake on. Remember, reliners must live. Well, the twins, Jeanne and Marguerite are yelling. I’ll have to quit. Love to the kiddies, Gertie P. S. It wasn’t the twins at all. It was the dog barking to be let in. Onct hupon a time there vas three liddle piges vot vas vent to the marketing. Vun liddle pige he meeted a man vot solt him a houze of straw. De sezond pige boughted heem a houze of wood. But de third liddle pige vas berry smart, you betcha, and he hintended to geted married. Therefore he builded his houze of bricks. Vun day a beeg storm harose (don’t get hexicated, it don't have nuttings to do wid de lifes of our heroes). Everydings vas goink berry fine huntil vun day a knock vas hearded on the door of de pige-who-lived-in-de-houze-of-straw. Ven de pige he hopened de door who do you suppose he seed? (Smack!—Junior, I told you to keep your mouth shuted, of cuss it vasn’t Erustern) a real life wolf! “Ah hah, jus’ so,” sneered de wolf, “do you vant of to buyed some bombing him surance?” “No,” saided de liddle pige, and slammed de door. Jus’ two days behind dat, de liddle pig’s houze it got blewed hup. De berry some ting happened to de pige-who-lived-in-de-houze-of-wood. Den de wolf he vented to the pige-who-lived-in-de-houze-of-bricks. "Do you vant some bombing hinsurance?” The wolf hesked. "Of cuss," replied de liddle pige, (he knew dis rocked) “does dis go into effect immediately if not soomer on jus' a small first payment?” “Sure, but you don't kneod of to worry about bombings vow," de wolf said, “Youse is perfectly saveded.” When de wolf had leaved de house, de liddle pige bombed de houze, collected de hinsurance hon de run, and rushed to Chicago for a quiet rest. This you kin see de moral of dis story: Never open a book from the back ‘cause one never knows when a turtle will strike. —De Hend THE TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE One Hundred'OtirTHE TATLER OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTV-ONE One Hundred'tivoAdvertisingAlphabetic Abraham Lincoln Life Insurance Co.

"What the World needs are people who can observe, think, and analyze." Few Employ-era 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 advantage, 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.
