 Vol. A[o. 28  EX LIBRISTT'MIE 30 s . PUBLISH CO BY TH SENIOR CLASS OF L X ALTON HIGH StHCOL ALTON, ILL. r 1932 VL Z' Lo--------------------------—o Foreword We, the Tatler Staff of 1932, have endeavored to make this Tatler portray the true spirit and enthusiasm of this school year. We hope for higher achievements by Alton High School which are certain to come in the future. •o‘Dedication We, the members of the Tatler Staff, dedicate the 1932 Tatler to Loren K. Freeman and Dinsmore Wood. Mr. Freeman, teacher in chemistry and Sponsor of Hi'Y, has always been an inspiration to us by his promotion of higher standards of citizenship for all of us. Mr. Wood, as Assistant Principal and Dean of Boys', has faithfully served in his work, devotion to the school, and in the solution of our many problems. Both have given cheerfully of their time to aid any student who may be in need of worth' while counsel and advice.Pauline Lintz Born—December 21, 1915 Died—December 5, 1931 In ‘Memoriam She is just away! With a cheery smile, and a wave of hand. She has wandered into an unknown land. And left us dreaming how very fair It must be, since she lingers there. Think of her still, as the same and say She is not here— she is just away!”PV Qontents Dedication and Views Administration Classes Athletics Organizations Features Advertisingf W. R.

Much has been done by its members to beautify our school and help the students and the faculty by improvements in and around the school. Many duties are placed on their shoulders and their judgment stands highest in carrying out the business of Education. All that they have done this year is appreciated by us.

Warren, Leo Jenkins Second Row: Frank Dehne, Lester Thompson Hot m Picture: Robert Baker Mrs. Burroughs Z'She Janitors The janitors are not seen much during our busy day. Their responsibility is that of keeping our high school in the coziness and cleanliness that it is found throughout the year. The janitors are the ones who get the blame when the school is not in proper order or is a little chilly in the morning. But even if it is a little chilly, how can they tell when a blizzard is coming? They are no weather prophets. If you do not believe the janitors have their work and troubles, just stay a few minutes after school and see the hustle and bustle they are in trying to make the school clean and tidy for the next day. EighteenFirst Row Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Ruyle Second Row Mrs. Cook, Mrs. Huebner, Mrs. Cooper Zphe Qoof{s The cooks are the ones who have served us with the delicious lunches which were on sale in the cafeteria. It was through their ability of knowing what foods to prepare and how to prepare them, so that we would be well satisfied with them, that we received the excellent meals which take the place and are even better than the meals which we otherwise would eat. We sincerely congratulate our cooks for the fine foods which they served us throughout the year. It is no wonder that we feel like working hard the rest of the day after having our hunger satisfied with a nice warm lunch prepared by the cooks.

Sophomores This Sophomore Class is the last one to enter Alton Senior High School as Freshmen. In the fall of 1931 the Alton school system set up the 6-3-3 plan of organization. Thus, the Freshman Class of the senior high school no longer exists, but is the ninth grade of the junior high school organization. Therefore, in the future, our Sophomores will not have to make as big a break in school advancements as our Freshmen of the past. This plan should lead to greater success of the class as a whole. This year's Sophomore class has made one of the best records of any group of Sophomores in recent years. Not only is the class intellectually good but also athletically inclined. The various athletic squads had many Sophomore members and next year will see their ability on the gridiron and hardwood. Fifty Coach Jackson When you look for a man who really and truly sticks to his word you can well depend upon Coach Jackson. Last season, when the games were over, Jackson expressed his regret to the student body of the few victories scored during the season, but, he said, “Watch our team next year. This we really did and found that this season we had one of the best teams in football that Alton High has had for a long time. In the basketball season, Coach Jackson had a hard time training his men because there were only a few lettermen back, so he was forced to do as good as he could. Although our basketball team was not so successful, it was outstanding just the same. Track is fast becoming a real sport and our Coach is very interested in getting our boys trained so that some time in the future we might have an outstanding track team. Assistant Coach Stage Coach Stage serves us as both faculty member and as an Athletic director. He assists Coach Jackson in drilling the second teams in football and basketball. Stage showed outstanding ability in helping the Coach and teams win the many victories of the season, which also helped create a better spirit for the sports and a better backing of the student body. Coach Stage also helps in drilling the teams for the spring sports, such as track, and his ability shown here is as efficient and outstanding as those of the major sports.

A large percent of the boys who were on the team last year were back and so with these and the large squad that was waiting for practice. Coach Jackson was able to pick out a sturdy team. With the help of Coach Stage, Coach Jackson had built up a team which was one of the hardest fighting teams Alton High has seen for a long time. COLLINSVILLE 0 — ALTON 6 The Red Birds' first game of the season was with Collinsville at our home field. Our boys fought hard and were determined to start the season right. When the game ended the score was 6-0 in favor of the “Red Birds. This first victory created much enthusiasm in the student body and the games were well attended. This helped our fighting eleven win their many victories. ALTON 7 — EDWARDSVILLE 2 The “Red Bird” hard fighting eleven journeyed to Edwardsville where they met their second foe of the season. The team returned with a joyous score of 7-2 in favor of Alton. WOOD RIVER 0 — ALTON 12 Our third game of the season was played on our home field with Wood River. The score was 12-0 in favor of the “Red Birds. This meant three straight victories for Alton. ALTON 7 — GRANITE CITY 19 Our hard fighting eleven went to receive their first defeat of the season at Granite City, with a score of 19-7- BELLEVILLE 6 — ALTON 0 The Red Birds were defeated on their home field by Belleville on a score of 6-0. ALTON 0 — EAST ST. LOUIS 2 This was one of the hardest fought games of the season that Alton played away from home and ended in a third defeat by a score of 2-0. MADISON 6 — ALTON 31 The final conference game of the “Red Birds was played on our home field with Madison and captured one of the highest scores of the season. Alton won 31-6. WESTERN 6 — ALTON 12 The final game of the season showed what a strong team Coach Jackson had built. There was no doubt in the “Red Birds mind what the outcome would be With snow fluttering down and making the field slick our boys held their ground and won for the first time in many years from Western by a score of 12-6.

If any day could be relived again, Who’d choose the one when knowledge most was gained. Bring back no single hour, no single day. For every day some time was thrown away.

Upper or lower? asked the agent. “What's the difference? asked the traveler. “A difference of 50 cents, replied the agent, continuing, “The lower is higher than the upper. The higher price is for the lower. If you want it lower you'll have to go higher. We sell the upper lower than the lower. In other words the higher, the lower. Most people don't like the upper although it is lower on account of its being higher. When you occupy an upper berth you have to get up to go to bed, and get down to get up. You can have the lower if you pay higher. The upper is lower than the lower because it is higher. If you are willing to go higher it will be lower.” But the poor traveler had fainted. y inety'CightTfi-aiE Alphabetic Index P»K'' Alton Auto Co.......................108 Alton Baking Catering Co. 117 Alton Brick Co. 109 Alton Evening Telegraph ........... 107 Alton Gas Co........................115 Alton Laundry Co.....................

FRIENDSHIP If nobody smiled and nobody cheered, And nobody helped us along, If each, every minute, looked after himself. And the good things all went to the strong; If nobody cared just a little for you. And nobody thought about me; And we stood ail alone in the battle of life; What a dreary old world it would be. Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made. And the things which in common we share. We want to live on, not because of ourselves. But because of the people who care; It's giving and doing for somebody else— On that all life’s splendor depends; And the joy of the world, when it's all added up, Is found in the making of friends.

The A's and B's we received on report cards. The proud moment when we received diplomas. How happy we were when fire bell rang in recitation. The announcement that a teacher would not be there. The satisfaction of having completed term reports. The delicious tete a tetes we had in corridors. The noticeable substitution of chevies for T model Fords. Our good old times in the library and study halls. The strange dignified feeling in a cap and gown. The Western game and how we trampled them. The many outstanding men and women that the class of 1032 produces. THINGS TO FORGET The whole hearted, eager way that the senior class bought up the year books. The idea that the seniors’ last month is paradise. The fact that brains and beauty don't mix. That's why so many are Hollywood bound. The alacrity of the students in learning the school song. The reason the girls didn't go to class play was because they didn't have the money and the boys, because there was no one to go with. The notorious reputation of being the largest senior class. The two long last weeks of school in which the teachers fruitlessly tried to make us work. Using of study halls in helping to recuperate from the nite before. The many humorous incidents that turned out tragically. The unanimous and ready response of class to pay dues. The habit of some to stick gum on seats. The styles brought into notice by our many “models.” Our first experience of making an appearance before the assembly. The “F's” received on report cards. The “tenth hour” classes. Our eagerness to buy assembly seat tickets” on the first day of school. That Memorial Day came on Saturday. And last but not least, that the seniors will now have to find another place to hiber' nate. WISE AND OTHERWISE TEARS Tears! Tears! Tears that are cried at eventide. Tears that soak up pillow and handkerchief. Tiny globules of salt water, these. But they will move any man. One Hundred'twentyo Reilley Bros.
