These years have left an impression on us just as it will on all of you. It has also given us pleasure to produce The Tatler for 1934. May it bring all of you much pleasure to read and enjoy it. fthe Matter DEDICATION To RAY L. JACKSON, whose ideals both on and off the athletic field have inspired those who were members of our athletic squads, as well as those who were not members, to do their very best in every undertaking, We, the Tatler Stiff of 1934, tike great pleasure in dedicating this annual. “Jack” is a friend to everyone who wants him as a friend. Sportsmanship is only one ideal which he sets before the school. His consistent and tactful service has done much to secure the active cooperation of the faculty and student body in athletic and school programs. 1934  She 'Sailer 3it iflemortam NELSON ROLLER Born October 31, 1917 Died..................

F. ty 1934Athletics Football Basketball Cheer Leaders Student Managei Wrestling Tennis Track‘Ghe 'Gatler — COACH JACKSON Ray L. Jackson has had the best football team of his career at Alton High School this year, a team that fought and that had an excellent record for the season. Coach Jackson has done well and the appreciation shown him by everyone, especially by the boys whom he has directed, is a fitting honor. His tact, humor, simplicity, and frankness of manner have won him an inestimable friendship. It is to be hoped that his teams will give him an opportunity for a conference victory, for which he has been so patiently waiting and which has been denied him. ASSISTANT COACH STAGE In the season of '32 Mr. Stage assisted Coach Jackson in developing a line in football that really held. This last season—'33—found most of the '32 line in action, but with the race of time some new places had to be filled. Again in '33 as in '32 and other previous seasons, Mr. Stage proved to be a real asset to Coach Jackson. 1934 Fifty'threeV he Sutler FOOTBALL LETTERMEN First Row: Bill Usinger, Ralph Kress, LeRoy Harrison, Norman Hibbard.

Fiftyjour 1934 'She Jailer FOOTBALL 1934 In 1933, for the second straight year, Alton High barely missed gaining a football championship of the Southwestern Illinois conference. These two years, without a doubt, have been Alton’s greatest football teams in several years. Whether Alton won or lost, the opponent really knew they had been in a football game. The team had lots of fight and worked hard. CENTRAL Alton's first encounter, a non-conference game, was with Central High of St. Louis, on the Red and Gray's field. The Jacksonmen got off on the right foot by winning this game. 7-0. EAST ST. LOUIS Alton started its conference play by tying East St. Louis 0-0. It was played on Parson's field in a strong wind. The game was featured by fine punting and many penalties. MADISON Hibbard ran wild and Alton trimmed Madison to the tune of 12-0 on our field. EDWARDSVILLE Alton's crucial test came with Edwardsville, but the Hilltoppers came out on the big end of a 6-0 score. The game was played under the lights at Edwardsville. This was Brunsworth's last game and he gave a good account of himself. COLLINSVILLE The Red Birds proved too powerful for the Collinsville Kahoks and overcame them 19-13, on our field under the lights. The game was featured by a 90 yard run by Hibbard. WOOD RIVER When Wood River played here, the Alton team gained revenge for its defeat at their hands last year. After a bad start the Hilltoppers made a strong come-back in the second half to win 13-7- BELLEVILLE Belleville was Alton's lone setback. It was thought that Alton had the conference all but won, but Belleville rose out of its place in the cellar to jolt the Redbirds. Alton didn't click and Belleville was going strong. The score was 7-13. GRANITE At Granite City the Redbirds were a changed team from the week before. They out-played the Warriors in every way. Gearing really showed his worth as Hibbard's understudy, scoring two of the touchdowns in this 19-0 victory. WESTERN On Turkey Day the Redbirds showed their power. They overcame the strong Western team 7-0. The game was “nip and tuck” all the way, but the Alton team gained their edge by stopping Western's great aerial attack. Yea! Alton! Rah! Rah! Rah!

Coach Jackson worked up a rather green yet fighting team. This group started off the season by winning from Edwardsville in a close game, but their inexperience couldn't cope with the veterans of the other teams of the conference. They won only four out of their fourteen conference games. Though they only gained a tie for seventh place, they showed a lot of fight and few of their games were lost by big scores. They fought clear to the finish. Since most of the squad are juniors and sophomores, much is expected from them next year. They will be more experienced and should be a real title contender.J = %s he Jailer Season Score ‘Alton. . . . 19 Edwardsville.... . . .18 Alton 21 Madison 25 ‘Alton 11 Belleville 16 ‘Alton. . . . 24 Wood River 28 ‘Alton. . 22 Granite City... . ... 32 Alton 10 Collinsville .29 ‘Alton 30 East St. Louis. . . .23 Alton 18 Edwardsville.... 24 ‘Alton. . 14 Madison 27 Alton 20 Belleville 17 Alton 21 Wood River 16 Alton 16 Granite City.... .18 ‘Alton 13 Collinsville .19 Alton 15 East St. Louis. 22 “Alton.. ... 45 .

Mr. Verle Monical coached a squad composed of: Russell Osborne, Chester Logan, Bill Jackson, Orville Henry, Bill Boedeker, George Berry, Phillip Rush, Robert Smith, Ted Yeung, Raymond Early, and Wyman Lyons. The squad received valuable training but misfortune overtook Bob Smith in the game at Bethalto when Bob crashed the wall for a broken arm. Bob was lost to the team for the season and at the time of his injury seemed to be headed for a berth on the first team. Osborne, Jackson, Logan, and Henry were later members of the first team. The experiment on pre-season basketball was successful and we hope for a bigger pre-season squad next year.

The “big three" were on the job very faithfully and successfully during the football season. Perseverance in arousing hope until the victory was ours has revived many a crowd of spectators into a stage of cheering enthusiasm that was powerful enough to help the team grab a victory out of the bag when it looked almost like sure and certain defeat. The task of leading the student body in Yea Alton Yea High Yea-Yea-Alton High! or A-A-A-L-T T-T-T-O-N Alton—Alton Yea-a-a-a1 is not as easy a task as it looks to be. May the work of this year’s Cheer Leaders encourage the leaders "to be" next year. Student Managers CHILDERS — BOSTER “Chillie" was the right hand man of the Athletic department during the first semester of this school year. He took care of his job in excellent manner and was always a benefit to the coaches whether he be in the shower room, issuing supplies, on the football field, or the basket ball floor, The job of "student manager" is not a snap when the work is done as it should be. "Ray” took over at the beginning of the second semester the work that "Chillie" had carried on so successfully in the fall semester. With a ready smile and an ever willing heart and hand to the task at hand, Ray soon won the hearty support and friendship of each one who came in contact with him. Coach Jackson and the boys are glad that Ray Boster will be with them in the fall. Wrestling Wrestling was introduced as an added sport late this spring—so late in fact that we could not get ready for conference competition. The time was long enough for coaches Hainline and Pruitt to get out a group of hard working boys. The outstanding wrestlers were: Weir Bristow, Edward Bryant, Francis Brickey, Charles Dilling, Wilbur Hand, Kenneth Holloway, Orval Jackson, Edwin Mason, Russell Meyers, Billy Middle-ton, Clarence Pickering, Cecil Tickner, and Thomas Wright. In matches that were held, Bristow and Dilling were undefeated while “Man Mountain" Pickering in the heavy weight class lost and won on an even break. Those who should readily develop themselves as winners in their respective weights (in the conference) next year are: Bristow, Bryant, Dilling, Hand, Jackson, Mason, and Tickner. With these boys and others who are certain to be out for the squad we feel that Alton High bids fair to take its place in the conference in wrestling in 1934-"35. 1934 Fifty'nine he atler V Fall Tennis In 1933, for the first year, the Southwestern Illinois Conference experimented with fall tennis. Henry Barnard played the singles; Ward Stallings, Nelson Roller, Sigmund Reid and Louis Putze alternated the doubles for Alton. The team was fairly successful but not as much so as it has been in the last few years. We hope that next year's team will rise to higher standards than did this year's team. Alton at E.

So far the matches and the district tournament at Belleville have been played. We were not particularly successful. Several other matches are yet to be played. Alton was represented in the singles by Henry Barnard and Ward Stallings; in the doubles by Bob Gearing, Herschel Funkhauser, Sigmund Reid and Fred List. Mr. Vernon Hainline served as coach. Track The track squad this spring has had fifteen boys who have been faithful and who have given their best to this sport. They are: Fat Harrison, Bill Usinger, Norman Hibbard, Bill Hanson, Archie Kodros, John Nisbett, Ben Moore, Donald Sargent, Karl Deterding, Earl Mundell, Thomas Wright, Bob Gearing, Ray Ashlock, Walter Bartow, and John Harris. Harrison, Hibbard, and Usinger have been our point getters in meets this year. In our conference meet Harrison placed second in the shot with a heave of 43 feet 5 inches. In the same meet Usinger tossed the Javelin 144 feet for a third place. On April 21, at Springfield, in a State wide contest for boys who have not won a “first” in local competition. Fat Harrison heaved the shot 44 feet 4 inches for a second place. In the same meet Hibbard came in third in the 220 dash. Twelve of the squad will be back next year and with this nucleus of seasoned material. Coach Jackson is hopeful of experiencing that revival in track enthusiasm which Alton High used to have. Then, too, all of us expect Fat Harrison to be a “shot put" winner next year and the rest of the squad to be winners or placers in the dashes, runs, and field events. 1934 Sixty Sutler K The 1934 Tatler Staff Margaret Gnerich, Editor-in-Chie ; Kenneth Jacoby, Business Manager; Frances Rippley, Assistant Editor; Luther L.

The Alton High School Chapter of National Honor Society was chartered in 1927 with eleven members and with Misses Cates and Cartwright as sponsors. The purpose of the society is to stimulate an enthusiasm for scholarship, leadership, character and service.

The Glee Club has proved to be one of the school’s best representatives, because of its never ceasing good will and friendship wherever it appears. The most outstanding accomplishment this year was the amazing performance in the operetta "Sunbonnet Sue” and its appearance at the Southwestern Illinois Teachers Conference at East St. Louis.

Its aim is to develop the creative ability of the members, to afford opportunities to write and to discuss matters pertaining to literary writing, and to sponsor creative writing by other than club members. Membership in the club is open to junior and senior high school students who, by the vote of the teachers of English, show most promise in Creative Writing. Election of new members occurs in May and January. Membership is limited to twenty-five. Meetings occur on the first and third Thursdays of every school month. At these meetings original contributions in the field of literary writing are read. Four issues of the Creative Writing Club Magazine "Wings" are edited each school year.

The Dramatic Club gave two three-act plays and one one-act play during the year. The first, a mystery farce, "Spooks" was given the last of October. The other, “Oh, Professor!" was given in March. The club gave "The Man in the Bowler Hat" for an assembly program in the spring. All the plays were under the direction of Miss Mildred Rutledge. A chapter of the National Thespians has been formed and consists of nine members. r 1934 Eighty'one 'Cohe Matter K First Row: Doris Sutton, Elizabeth Luer, Shirley Stiles, Jane Watkins, Nell Gere, Jane Roberts.

If so, you may be surprised to learn that Western shells are manufactured to even closer limits of accuracy. Western shells are made by the million, yet the tools used are held to tolerance calculated in thousandths of an inch. All shells have shot, wads, powder, etc. . . but are the shot pellets round, so they will travel straight to the bird? Western pellets are! Do the wads really seal the gun bore and are they moisture-proof? Western’s patented, exclusive Seal-Tite wads seal the bore and are also the only wads that do not absorb moisture. The powder used is the best that can be produced. Western Non-Corrosive primers are sure-fire, not miss-fire, and the brass (we make it in our own mill) is of such uniform high quality that makers of well known watches and other precision instruments buy it from us for use in their own products. Because Western is better ammunition thousands of shooters prefer the famous Super-X shell, the original and biggest selling long range load. Its exclusive short shot string feature assures clean kills at distances almost unbelieveable. Western Xpert, Field and Minimax shells are as popular with upland game shooters as Super-X is for long range shooting.

When the meet was over the Red and Gray lads had totaled 10 points—somewhere near that many more than the other schools had expected to see us get. Here is the story in figures: Fat Harrison heaved the shot 46 feet for a new conference record, a first place and five points; Ben Moore took third in the high jump and added 2 points; Bill Usinger placed third in the javelin and added two more points; while Bill Hansen came in fourth in the half-mile run to give us our tenth point. Golf Since there is a first time for every sport, golf along with wrestling, enters Alton High's Athletic program. Oscar Reynolds, Laverne Hooper, Ted Young, John Hand, Edward Huebner, Joe Edwards, Ralph Bennett, Roger Farley, Ray Ashlock, Bill Usinger, Herschel Funk-houser, and Thomas Wright entered a school tournament. Ted Young, John Hand, and Bill Usinger came out with the best scores and entered the conference meet at Belleville. Usinger was the only one in the conference meet from Alton who scored low enough to get a ticket to the State meet. Bill met tough opposition in the State meet and with a rough course over which to play was unable to win any honors for Alton High. It is hoped that this year’s efforts in golf will put the bug to work and bring us a championship in this field 'ere long. A One Hundred'eighteen 1934 V Zhe Matter JOKES Mr. Reynolds: What is the spinal column? Skinny: (After a short period of scrutiny and thought) It's a long string of bones. The head sits on top and you sit on the bottom. ------o------- They laughed when I walked over to the piano but they were right, I couldn't lift it. ------o------- Shirley: What is the greatest invention? Barnard: Man, of course. Shirley: Yes, but woman was an improvement. Barnard: Yes, that's what keeps men out late; looking for improvement. ------o------- Aaron: Won't you give me just one little kiss, honey? Eliz.: No, my lips are chapped. Aaron: Well one more little chap won’t hurt anything. ------o------- I feel like a wormeaten tree because I’m bored. -------o------- Mrs. Carr, mother of 17 children went to visit her neighbor. She took the new baby along and the neighbor lady said, “Oh, I see you have another little Carr." Mrs. Carr replied: “Yes, and I hope this is the Calaboose.” -------o------- When a girl finds she's not the only pebble on the beach, she becomes a little bolder. -------o------- Boy friend (after kissing her): I'm sorry, I did that, but my nerve made me do it. Girl: Well, I must say I like your nerve. -------o------- Boy: Shall we tango? Girl: It's all the same to me. Boy: Yes, I've noticed that. -------o------- Wandling: Who invented work, anyway? Gearing: Don't worry; you'll never infringe on his patent. -------o------- Harrison: Say, why are you washing your spoon in the finger bowl? Ted: Do you think I want to get egg all over my pocket? Vance: So she returned the ring you gave her? Berry: Yeah, she mailed it to me and she had the nerve to paste a label on the outside of the package saying, "Glass handle with care." -------o------- Roberta G.: Father was very pleased when I told him you were a poet. T. A. Blazier: That's fine. Does he enjoy poetry? Roberta: No, but my sister's boy friend, whom he tried to throw out, is a football player. -------o------- (In restaurant on date) E. Yaeger: Bob, how can you eat with a knife? Rudin: It's not as easy as it looks. Look around at the other guests; not one of them can do it. 1934 One Hundred-twenty Ghe Gaiter V JOKES Noble: When Mr. Smith arrived home from a Western city, he fell on his face and kissed the pavement of his native city. Morgenroth: Emotion? Noble: No, banana skin. -------o-------- Mr. Hanna, walking across hay field in the country, met a farmer: "Is it an offense to catch fish here?" Cope: Offense? Gosh, no, it's a miracle. --------------o- Pohlman was busy sawing on the steak he had ordered—and a difficult time he was having. "Is it tough?" queried O'dell solicitously. Pohlman was exhausted. He turned to the waiter with defeat in his eyes. "When I order beef and get horse I don't care. But next time, take the harness off before you start serving." --------------o-------- He thought he'd made a hit When for his photograph she prayed. “Out when this calls," she wrote on it, And gave it to the maid. -------o--------------- I kissed her on the neck, the cheek; I kissed her lips, her brow; But I shall kiss no more this week— I've painter's colic, now. --------------o-------- 1st boy: You'd never think this street used to be a cow path, would you? Ted: Oh, I don't know. Look at all the calves on it. --------------o-------- "Hay, you!” yelled the traffic officer at Putze, "Why don't you use both hands?” "I'm afraid to let go of the steering wheel," grinned the irrepressible Putze. Husband: Oh, oh, who spilled mustard on this waffle, dear? Wife: How could you! This is lemon pie. Mr. Stallings: Did your father help you with this problem? Cordes: Naw, I got it wrong by myself. --------o-------- Here lies a young salesman named Phipps Who married on one of his trips, A widow named Block; Then died of the shock, When he saw there were six little chips. --------o-------- Bob G. to Arline: Gimme a kiss. Arlene: (No answer) Bob: Please, just one, dear. Arlene: (Still no answer) Bob: (shouting) Are you deaf? Arlene: (angrily) Are you paralized? 1934 On« Hundrcd'twcnty'two7 — he atler — AUTOGRAPHS 1934 One Hundrcd-twcnty-threcJ %$he Sutler k 1934 One Hundred'twenty'four
