i I V Volume A(o. 31EX LIBRISTHE T A T L E R 1 THE TATLER Published by the Senior Class of Alton High School Alton, Illinois Nineteen Hundred and Thirty five if 19 3 5 7 z THE T A T L E R Foreword It is the purpose of the Staff to ma e the il(l5atler” a mirror of student life during 1934 35, reflecting their fun, labor, and accomplishments. -And when these days have gone their way, may this boo be a to en of remembrance which will serve to recall the friendships, the rivalries, defeats and triumphs at Alton High School. 19 3 5 jTHE T A T L E R ‘Dedication We, the Tatler Staff of 1935, take great pleasure in dedicating this annual to MISS FRIEDA E. VOSS, who has served as librarian in Alton High School since 1926. Miss Voss will assist anyone in search of material for class assignments or to satisfy general educational desires. Many pupils have found her advice both ready and valuable in problems other than strictly school affairs. V 19 3 5 J 7 THE T A T L E R Fifty Years a Teacher Twenty-one years ago Richard V. Smith completed his thirtieth year of teaching, at this time being in the White Hall High School. R. V. decided to quit teaching and came to Alton looking for a place to buy. His present home on East College was the “buy. It was just a farm and a house must be built. The following year the school board from Pie-Town called on Mr. Smith and offered him a position on the faculty of the Horace Mann High School. Mr. Smith accepted the call and has never found the time to make the “fruit farm come to a reality, which was his goal, although he has achieved his goal in a partial degree. When Pie-Town became a part of Alton proper, Mr. Smith entered the Alton school system and was sent to the senior high school. Mr. Smith has achieved a record exceeded or equaled by only a very few—fifty years a teacher. Mr. Smith leaves the high school after having made a legion of friends among the pupils who have been at one time or another in one of his classes. The faculty and student body join in wishing to R. V. many years of enjoyable life as a reward for a life of honorable work well done. 19 3 5 ) 7THE T A T L E R Contents Introduction Administration Classes Athletics Organizations Advertisers Features s =( 19 3 5 7 THE T A T L E R We hopped into the clouds To see just how we looked from the s y. 19 3 5 ) THE T A T L E R Administration “Education has long been recognized to be Democracy’s guide to permanent success.” 19 3 5 It W.

Jac son “Coach, to the boys in athletics, Jack to his friends, plain “Ray to Mrs. Jackson, and Dad” to son Billy, came to Alton High in the fall of 1929 from Casey, Illinois, where a prosperous reign had been held in athletics. At this time our athletic program was at ebb tide. Coach began building for the future. At times the so-called barber shop crew criticised and even fired” Jack. Then in 1931 the tide turned when the boys licked Western, and the Western slate is still clean. And now football championships in 1933 and 1934 with good prospects for 1935. Basketball in 1932-33 and 1935 have seen the hardwood's best results. Assistant Coach James F. Stage You will remember that at one of our football assemblies last fall our coach reminded us that “Jim Stage and the squad deserved a just portion of the credit for the success of our football team. “Thems” our sentiments, too! Jim has his part of the coaching work to do and the manner in which it has been done is evidenced by our squad's success. Jim, too, has been with us since 1929. 19 3 5 TE Fifty-sevenMADISON ST.CLAIR I LeRoy Harrison Ralph Kress John Nisbett Archie Kodros LEROY HARRISON was born in Fairfield, Illinois, on April 17, 1917-LeRoy has been given the nickname of “Fat. “Fat” is a sophomore and has earned two letters in football. “Fat played end and tackle.

Fat made all-conference and the all-state teams this season. “Fat is good natured and is well liked. “Fat will be back next season to show us some more good football. JOHN NISBETT was born in Alton on Christmas day, 1916. John is a senior in school. This is his first and last year in a first team berth. John had not been much interested in football until this season. He had been out for football before but didn't take the game seriously. This last year he snapped out of it and proved to be a valuable man. He is rough and tough and always has a smile. He played tackle on offense and guard on defense. John made all-conference guard this season. RALPH KRESS was born in Alton, January 6, 1916. The boys have nicknamed him “Mike. Mike has played football for two years and was acting captain last season. Kress was picked for this position because of his ever-ready smile, good disposition, and his level headedness. Mike is a hard charging lineman, good on defense as well as offense. He made all-conference tackle. Ralph was graduated in the January Class. He will be missed next season. ARCHIE KODROS was born January 20, 1918, in Alton. He has been named Archimedes by his fellow players. This is Archie's first year on the team. It was said he would never make center position but he practiced hard all summer and landed first-string berth at center. He is a good passer and good on defense. This is the last of the famous Kodros family. Archie made all-conference center this season. He is also a good student in school and has a smile for every one. We expect much from him next season.

He is also a great defensive player. He played against Western's five man backfield and six man line. Ralph made second all-conference team. We think he should have made first team, but he will be back next season to do that. RAY ASHLOCK was born in Alton, February 8, 1918, and is a junior in school.

His ability as a runner, passer, and defensive man makes him valuable to the team. He came from Roosevelt Junior High where he received experience as a football player.

In November of 1934 a letter was received from the principal of Belleville High School to the effect that the game won on our field in November of 1933, by a 13-7 score was forfeited to us via the 7-0 route. This was all due to one Capone—no relation to Chicago’s Al”—who had forgotten when he was born and was beyond the I. H. S. A. A. age of 20 years in the season of 1933. And it was this Capone who was largely responsible for the Belleville touchdowns when they downed us and blasted our championship of 1933 right out of its lawful abiding place. The cup—emblematic of the 1933 championship—-is at Edwardsville, to whom it was awarded at the close of the 1933 season. The Tigers retain the cup due to the athletic mix-up which caused the dissolution of the old Southwestern Illinois Conference before the Belleville forfeit. Again all hail—farewell—Champions of 1933!

Basketball 1934-1935 The basketball season opened with high hopes for a successful season. And then— Some things happened but not according to our designs or hopes. With a goodly crew of lettermen and with new blood like Spurgeon and Rasar and others we couldn't get into the winning stride. After the boys played a whale of a game in either the first or second half or as at Wood River for three quarters only to be nosed out at the finish. The season play showed two wins and ten setbacks for sixth place— finishing above Belleville—while the conference win went to Granite City who won eleven and lost one. TOURNAMENT time arrived. We drew Collinsville. The squad and the coach decided it was time to end the grapevine gossip that the boys were dubs” and that Jackson did not know basketball. And then the team stopped Collinsville 25-21. Some wise ones said, Oh yes—a fluke. The boys don’t have it. A “practice” game dropped Worden 47-7- The seeded drawing provided the Edwardsville Tigers in their silk suits. About everybody expected to see the Red Birds swamped. Even the Edwards-ville coach said, “Jackson, you will be the miracle coach of Southern Illinois if you beat me tonight. Alas for the Tigers! What a game! Alton 27, Tigers 25. In the final Granite took our measure 25-16 but as runner up we moved to Gillespie for the next round. Here we met Lebanon in a game which proved to be a nip and tuck, bang up thriller for the fans—but a sad one for Alton High. The Red Birds were leading by a 21-20 count with 20 seconds to go when a Lebanon player heaved the ball at the basket. The shot was good and our ticket to Urbana vanished.

Good work was done by Coach Schmidt as evidenced by the fact that practically every one of this squad made the regular season squad and played either regular or as sub on the first string quintet.

Ferguson, Missouri, conquered the Red Bird matmen in their two meetings during the season. The majority of the squad will return for action next season and with the increased interest in wrestling the school bids fair to become a tougher foe in next year's mat con-tests.

Npt in Picture: Archie Kodros. Trac Yes sir! For many years Alton High has cried aloud for a track squad to go places and do things. This year has been our best “track year in the last decade. Quite true it is that we won neither the State nor Conference meets but we did take third in the Conference meet, and scored points in every meet except the State. Fat Harrison and Ben Moore made the trip to the State meet but failed to score any points. The fact that the boys grabbed third place in the Conference meet is gratifying to the coach and squad. It should likewise be a challenge to the boys not out for track. Too many boys fail to realize that it takes time to develop a track man and unless they win their first meet they are through. Fat Harrison has been a consistent point getter in the discus and shot put. He set a new conference record of 126 feet 3 inches in the discus, and took second in the shot put. Ben Moore in the high and braid jump has been a consistent high jump winner and placed in the broad jump. Sigmund Reid in the mile run was good and copped the conference meet. Other winners of points were: Usinger in the javelin, Hibbard in the 220, and Hansen in the 880. All of the point getters except Moore, Reid, and Hibbard will be eligible next year. With these men as a starting group next year, plus new blood, our track squad should be hard to beat. 19 3 5 Sixty-rightTHE T A T L E R Organizations For quality and for quantity Our Organizations stand s y high.

The background of “Lelawala” or “The Maid Of Niagra,” is the legend of Niagra, the “Thunder Waters of the Indians. The operetta centers around Lelawala, the daughter of Nokomis, Chief of the Oniahgarahs. When war threatens her tribe the spirit of the Thunder Waters is appealed to. The great spirit demands the sacrifice of a virgin. Lelawala is chosen to appease the wrath of the Great Spirit by drifting over the mighty falls in a white, flower-decked canoe. The setting is an Indian village on the bank of Niagra near the falls. The time is 1761. The beat of Indian tom-toms forms a background for the beautiful music of Lelawala. The costumes of the white characters were colonial in style. Much credit is due Mr. Harlan who directed the dramatics and stage arrangements of the operetta. James Harmon deserves credit for the art work and Capt. Porter for the music. The music in Lelawala was distinctly Indian-serious, with nothing trivial about it. A great deal was in minor keys, also typical of Indian music. 1 935 7 Seventy-three THE T A T L E R First Row: LaVerne Nowotne, Frances Aulabaugh, Nelle Weiss, Elizabeth Belt, Helen Jennings, Dorothy Beck, Fern Edwards, Helen Edwards, Bernice Medhurst, Virgia Hinrichs, Jane Watkins, Kathryn Stephenson.

Rational Hoyior Society The National Honor Society of Secondary Schools is conducted under the auspices of the Department of Secondary School Principals of the National Education Association. It was organized at Chicago in 1919 after a long-felt need for an honor organization national in scope for secondary schools. 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. Only fifteen per cent of the students of the 4-1 class in the upper third in scholarship, who have been rated in the above qualifications by the faculty, are eligible for membership. 19 3 5 Seventy-fourFirst Row: Miss Rutledge, sponsor, Betty Pierce, Charlotte Beiser, Martha Penning, Pnebe McAdams, Sally Birney, Elizabeth Nevins, Dorothy Beck, Mary Kirk Mook, Magdaline Fahrig.

It is an international honorary society for high school journalists founded for the purpose of encouraging and rewarding individual merits on either the school paper or annual. Students must have done excellent work in some phase of the journalistic field and must be in the upper third of the class. They are selected by the supervisors and ap-proved by the National Secretary-Treasurer. Last year the Chapter won second honor in a National Quill and Scroll contest by submitting the Alton High Times.

Language Club The Latin Club was organized in January, 1930. The purpose of this organization is to increase the interest of the students in Roman civilization and to increase the students’ knowledge of Rome today. The French Club was organized in Alton High School in 1929. Those students of the French III and IV classes who have a grade of C, or above, may become members of the club. The purpose is to promote ability in reading and conversation of the French language and increase the knowledge and appreciation of French culture. The French Club and the Latin Club joined in the fall of 1934 because of kindred interests, and so were able to sponsor programs otherwise impossible. The joint meetings with lecturers and the social activities are worth while and pleasant. Miss Phillips and Miss Machin are the sponsors. 19 3 5 7 Seventy-sixTHE T A T L E R First Row: Sally Birney, Charlotte Beiser, Julia Rittenhouse, Rita Cutler, Mildred Chappee, Nelle Weiss, Winona Voss, Lillian Gerson.

Compliments of It Pays To Patronize Tatler Advertisers X 19 3 5 X One Hundred THE T A T L E R Class Prophecy, January 1935 As I lay under a typical Florida sun, my mind wandered back to my high school days and I wondered what had become of all my friends of the January class of 1935. To be sure, I had seen one or two of them in the twenty years that had passed since that time but there my meetings with them stopped. As I dozed an attractive woman in her thirties paused to ask me if I was enjoying my stay at the resort. “Why, your face looks vaguely familiar,” I said, “You aren't, by any chance, a member of my high school graduating class?” “That, of course, depends upon who you are. But you do look like someone I used to know,” she assured me. I identified myself and much to my surprise, she remembered me. Why, she was BETTY BLAIR. She had married a rich young man, whose father owned the hotel in which I was staying. Upon the death of his father, the son had become sole owner of this and other prominent hotels. The son, by the way, was my old friend, HERSCHEL FUNKHOUSER. Betty attempted to tell me the whereabouts of some of our former classmates but she was not very successful. A chorus girl who I had watched with some interest the evening before at the theater, stopped and spoke a few words to Betty and I recognized her as SALLY VOORHEES. She had changed her name to one which I can not now recall, although she was not married. Taking leave of my charming hostess, I strolled leisurely down to the water's edge and stood talking to the life guard for several minutes before I recognized him. Yes, he was another of my classmates. He was HAROLD SEILER. He had applied for the job under an assumed name because of a divorce entanglement with his wife who was the former BERNICE MEDHURST. It seems that Bernice had sued for divorce when she learned that hubby would not permit her to continue her beauty work. She had become so infatuated in the work that when he suggested dropping it they had quarreled on the spot. During our chat, a cry for help was heard and Harold was in the water like a flash. The drowning person proved to have faked a drowning to have that handsome guard rescue her. She was HELEN JENNINGS and when she learned our identity she immediately left us, begging us to wait till she dressed so we could talk over old times. When she returned we took a table and were served by none other than T. A. BLAZIER, the head waiter. My stay terminated the next day. When I hailed a taxi to the depot, ROBERT LITTLE answered my summons. He carried my luggage to the porter who was ALFRED ARMSTEAD, who, in turn, took me to my compartment. Through many hurried whispers, I learned that the railroad president was to be present on this ride. I looked forward to meeting him because they said he was one of the type of men who mix well and who play a good hand of cards. To my great surprise when they announced him he was ROBERT SIDNER. “Bob had made a good name for himself. When he walked down the aisle every passenger rose in his seat and saluted him. 19 3 5 One HundreJ'OneTHE T A T L E R For all the family “STAR BRAND SHOES ARE BETTER” Thomas J.

Broadway Phone 3544 19 3 5 y One Hundrcd'two 7T ATTHLEE R — CLASS PROPHECY continued On this trip north, I met many old friends. Among them were: GENEVA KELLY, who is manager of a chain of cosmetic shops; JACK DUNPHY, travelling manager of the Pepsodent Tooth Paste Company; ELMO COONS, who has made a fortune in the manufacture of hair pins that won't fall out; and MARJORIE HOOD, who is JAMES McMANUS’ wife. When I alighted from the train in Chicago, I went to a magazine stand and bought several magazines from LILLIAN HACK, who was behind the counter. Registering at a prominent hotel I went to my room for a quiet evening reading. Tiring of this after a time, I tuned in a radio program from a national chain. A dramatic sketch was being presented by a talented group and when the names were given great was my surprise to find that all of them were Alton High School graduates. GEORGE CORWIN, ROBERT CHEVALLEY, JOHN STEWART, VIRGINIA WHITE, LAURA OULSON, and VIRGINIA PHELPS were- the performers. The announcer was VICTOR KELLY who had just won the year's prize for diction. Picking up a newspaper to look over the news of the day, I found more of my classmates in the front page headlines. LOUISE LAMPERT purchases New York World and will manage same with the help of City Editor MELVIN RUTZ. Mr. and Mrs. WILFRED KINZEL (RUTH COUSLEY) returned from trip around the world. “DONALD DORRIS wins Walkathon with his partner EDNA JACKSON. After a night's rest I hunted up the bank with which I was to transact my business in Chicago. This firm, one of the most prominent in the city, proved to be headed by MELVIN CRAMER. He informed me that several officials in his bank were also classmates. They were: Cashier NICHOLAS McKEE and one of the tellers was ED. MORGENROTH. Completing my business I decided to take a plane to Washington, D. C. The pilot was FRED PIEPER. Arriving in Washington, I visited the Senate and on the floor making an impassioned speech was U. S. Senator from Illinois, Miss ELIZABETH HICKEY we knew her as BETTY. Glaring at her from a nearby seat was another Senator who disagreed. She was ARM1LDA WATERS. Since my trip throughout the United States was to include mostly large cities, I took a train to New York and immediately upon my arrival late in the evening went to a well-known night club. The hotcha” singer was MARIAN BALLINGER assisted at the piano by DORTHEA HENDERSON. I was introduced to the manager whom I recognized as ORVILLE HENRY. A book shoppe which I visited was heralding the latest novels by the well-known authors MAXWELL POTTS and JOHN WRIGHT. In one of the most exclusive shops on Fifth Avenue I found FERN TACK WELL, owner of the Darling Shoppes which one can find anywhere in the United States. SARA ELLEN EMMERSON and VIRGIE HINRICHS had found their way to Broadway as “leads in the Petite Chorus, with DOUGLAS DAVIS as the temperamental, nervous director. 19 3 5 7 One Hundred'threeTHE T A T L E R ALTON LAUNDRY CO.

She had gained fame despite her interest in a member of the June class of 1935. AUGUST CONWAY, United States Ambassador to Finland, arrived in New York on the S. S. Maritona. The captain of this super structure, said to be the largest in the world, was HOWARD MOULTEN. An imposing structure at the water's edge attracted much attention. It was the beginning of a bridge which was to span the Atlantic Ocean and which would require ten years work under the direction of the capable construction engineer, ROY VOU-MARD. RICHARD McKEE, his assistant, was negotiating with EARL DODD concerning the amount of materials to be used for the next week's work. Suddenly developing a toothache, I went to the nearest dentist's office and the dentist, ED. RICHARDSON, extracted two teeth. (He pulled out the wrong one first). His assistant, ALBERTA LONG, aided him in a most capable way. My visit in New York ended the next day and I left for California via airplane. Landing in Los Angeles, I was met by BEULAH ZARECOR, the city's hostess. STERLING LaMARSH held the position of mayor and his secretary, who really did more than he, was PAULINE WALTER. MAYFORD LINEBARGER headed the police department and left no stone unturned in anything he attempted. An expedition left next day for Hollywood and I was among the group. The first star we visited was HOMER GRENZEBACK, who was 1955’s Clark Gable. His leading lady was ELEANOR WINTER. Other famous people were MARY LOGAN, ELEANOR YAEGER, and JOHN GOOLSBY. JULIA GOSSRAU and HARRIET SMITH were operating a tea shoppe on a sunny boulevard and it was certainly not a “Tea Pot on the Rocks as the senior play of that semester had suggested. Later, on my trip home, I stopped off for an inspection tour of the Rockies, and while there, was guided by that most excellent mountain climber, BETTY WINDSOR. Finding myself with a few days to spare before I was due home, I dropped down to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for a brief sojourn. I visited the Sanitarium for the Care of Tubercular Cats and found FRANCES YAGER in charge. Her assistants were MARIE WILKINS and VIRGINIA DORSEY. Returning to the United States I decided to visit a school in St. Louis, where to my great surprise I found FERN EDWARDS teaching Home Economics. In one of the large social service homes I found DOROTHY GRAESSLE and DOROTHY KOHLER setting a new record in this service. Arriving home I found VELMA MEYER and CLARA MAE SAUERWEIN keeping house with two well-known gentlemen. I hadn't known they were in my home town until this time. Here I was still in the same place I had been twenty years ago. And the final blow to my pride came when I opened one of my letters and found it was from OLIVE SCHUETTE who was in Alaska as a trained nurse. 1935 )E One Hundred-fiveTHE T A T L E R Melling Gaskins Printing Co.

In athletics we hold the conference football trophy. We closed the basketball and track seasons in a burst of enthusiasm that carried our athletic banner well to the front. The wrestling team closed a successful year's work. The music department scored hits with Sarah Dodge, Eldwin Marshall, the band, and the operetta. As usual the orchestra and glee clubs did their part around the school and community in a creditable manner. Sarah Dodge holds the highest individual record among those in the music work—winning a second group rating in the National Music Contest at Madison, Wisconsin. The school paper—Alton High Times—has had a successful year, and The Tatler is closing its thirty-first volume a financial and we hope a scholastic success. Our “Campus Beautiful” committee has done an excellent piece of work this year. The Dramatic Club, senior plays, and departmental club plays have all been well done. There are many more events and people who deserve honorable mention for the help around school which they have given. In this concluding paragraph we pay honor to everyone in A. H. S. who has earned honors during the school year whose name is omitted. We look forward to 1935-36 with great expectations.
