Volume No. 32 EX LIBRISTHE TATLER Published by the ALTON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ALTON, ILLINOIS Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-sixWhy? In answer to the above question it is the purpose of the Staff of 1936 to give a complete and permanent record of Alton High for the school year c f 1935-36. We shall stress our accomplishments of every day school life through pictures and words. If we accomplish our purpose we shall look back upon our work with an air of satisfaction.Dedication We, the members of the Tatler Staff, take pleasure in dedicating the 1936 Tatler to Mr. C. C. Hanna. Mr. Hanna is completing his sixth year as principal of Alton High School. He has put into practice during this time many principles that have proved to be beneficial to pupils as well as teachers. Mr. Hanna is a friend to all who know him, and he has inspired many to create opportunities to make not only their own lives more complete but the lives of those around them as well.R. V. SMITH (1862-1936) In Memoriam Richard V. Smith was bom in Pike County, Illinois, on January 12, 1862, and departed this life at his home on East College Avenue, March 15, 1936. Mr. Smith retired from active service in the Alton school system in June, 1935, after fifty two years of service as a teacher. Twenty-one of these years were spent in the Alton system. The high school at White Hall, Horace Mann High School, and our own senior high school account for more than forty years of service. In appreciation of Mr. Smith the following program was given as a Memorial Service on April 24, 1936, in our auditorium: "Lead Kindly Light”... Mary Kathryn Belcher Violin Solo "Abide With Me” 1 . .

We know it As we move along to class The putt putt putt is heartenin’ For there's mowin’ of the grass. Oh the power machine is throbbin’ Down the straight way cornin' fast Slowly turning-loudly phutting The yard man’s mowin' grass. Five days a week he works so hard Disturbing teaching of the class Let's give the man a great big hand Yea! For noisily mowin’ grass. Whee—the students love the clatter When he pulls down on the gas It makes the teacher stop explainin' Difficult things in Algebra Class. Now at Alton High we’re sensible As from room to room we pass From Monday morn to Friday eve We hear them mowin’ grass. Saturday’s a day for pleasure In the spring we fish for bass And cast our thoughts from humdrum things Like the mowin’ of the grass. Of course we wouldn't think of Replacing customs of the past So we give the yard man Saturday Off from mowin' of the grass. When a Senior or a Freshman Sits together with his lass There is nothin' more relaxing Than reclining on new cut grass. Gee—we're lonesome in the winter When we knuckle down at last There's nothin’ to disturb us For they're done with mowin' grass.

HOLT Coach of Basketball and Assistant Football Coach Football Lettermen Archie Kodros, senior, completed his third season as a member of a championship achieving football machine—and sorry to say there just "ain't” any more Kodros boys. Archie dominated the center position in conference play for three years and named all-conference center in '34 and again in '35. Alton will surprise conference foes next year by playing without a Kodros name. "Football gave me my greatest thrill when coach told us that we had a bid put in for an opportunity to play the ‘Coconut Bowl' game at Miami, Florida, on New Year's Day.” Oh, what a dream if only it had come true! Ralph Bennett, senior, regular backfield man for three years was found in the starting line-up in every game of the season. Ralph scored 15 touchdowns and 5 points after touchdown, and accounted for 679 yards of Alton’s gains. One of the hardest hitting backs Alton has ever had, Ralph will lie gladly missed by our opponents. "My biggest moment came in the Wood River game when I made a 55 yard run to score one of my three touchdowns in this game." Bennett won the full back position on the conference eleven. LeRoy “Fat” Harrison, junior, played his third complete season without missing a game. Fat was found in the line and acted as captain of the '35 Powerhouse Steam Roller eleven. Fat has won all-state and all-conference positions for two consecutive years, the first Alton High athlete to ever be so honored and few athletes have even won state recognition more than one year. "The biggest thrill 1 have ever had came in the Wood River game in 1933, when I blocked one of their punts inside the 10 yard line from which point we drove over a touchdown that ‘iced’ the game for Alton High.” IN THE PICTURE . Left to Right Archie Kodros Ralph Bennett LeRoy Harrison.Football Lettermen Bruce Smithee, junior, came under the wire as winner of a letter in football in 35, as did all of the players with individual pictures. Bruce was one of the boys who did not get to be a regular starter of games as his main duty in regulation play was to serve as substitute for “Fat.” He did not get many chances to peddle his wares—yet he was ever faithful at practice and for all regular games too. Thrills came to the subs too. “Being a member of a championship team is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Then, too, getting into the game with Central High of St. Louis will always be remembered.” Kenneth Bauser, senior, carried with him into practice sessions that grim determination to stick on the squad, and if he couldn’t make the storting line-up he would be ready for duty as a sub. Bauser found it a pleasure to stick out on the practice field all season and to keep in shape to take his turn as a substitute. “One of the biggest thrills I got out of my football experience came in the Central High game last fall when I went into the game to replace Hand. You can well guess my degree of excitement when I failed to realize the first play called for me to punt. Somehow I got the ball and kicked it somewhere down the field.” Alvin Burmaster, junior, was another one of the boys who was a consistent, steady, willing worker on the squad. Burmaster did not get to Ire a regular starter of games but £ t was ever ready to make his entrance into the game as a sub. This was Burmaster’s second year as a member of the squad. “My greatest thrill in football came in the opening game of the season when coach sent me into the fray. It has been great to have been a member of this year’s great championship squad." Lloyd Langacher, co-manager, was a steady, enthusiastic, willing worker who was always present to do what he could to have every player out at the football field in the shortest possible time; to see that no player suffered from lack of equipment; to take off of the hands of the coaches every task that a manager could assume. "The opportunity to serve as student manager of the championship team when we entertained Hyde Park was the real high light of my managerial experiences. IN THE PICTURE Left to Right Bruce Smithee Kenneth Bauser . Alvin Burmaster . Lloyd Langacher. 57Football Lettermen William “Bill" Usinger, senior, played his third season as a member of the backfield that together with a stone-wall line gave Alton High three consecutive championships. He gained 675 yards during the season. Bill was selected as a backfield man of the '35 alb conference eleven. “My whole football career has been a thrill but the greatest thrill came on Thanksgiving Day of '34, when 1 kicked the field goal that in the end of the battle was to prove the deciding margin of victory." Osker Reynolds, junior, for the second consecutive year held down the left guard position in the starting line-up of the Red Birds. Osker was one of the seven who had this motto for opponents—“they shall not pass.’’. “My greatest thrill so far came in '34, when I learned I was to start in the line against Decatur. It has been great to play two seasons on a championship team and I shall give everything I have in '36 to help place Alton High at the top of the heap for at least another season." Harry Jones, senior, broke into the starting line-up often enough that when one read the summary of the various games during the season it looked as if the Jones boys were out in numbers. Playing in the line Harry didn't have much of any chance at scoring but he was always there to do his part in blocking opponents line rushing plays or to help in driving the Alton steam roller through the opponents' line to open a way for our back-field men to advance. "My greatest thrill came in the Belleville game when our offense drove through for touchdowns almost at will and with one exception our defense stopped them cold." Ray Ashlock, senior, burr headed quarter back was a regular backfield man and played in the starting line-up of every game. Ashlock was not the type of quarter back who scores many field goals as the records will show that the other back field men were given their just and lawful chances to cross the enemy goal line. “My greatest thrill came near the end of the Western game in '34, when I recovered enough from an injury received early in the game to return to the line-up and carry over Western's goal line the winning touchdown for Alton High " IN THE PICTURE . Left to Right Bill Usinger . Osker Reynolds . Harry Jones . Ray Ashlock.Football Lettermen Wilbur Hand, junior, takes part in most of the high school sports and came through in grand style on this year's championship team. Hand was one of the "boys” to be in the starting line-up of every game. Dutch says that there were two high lights in his football career. “My first big moment in football came in '34, against Madison when the coach sent me into my first game. However, to start in our first game last fall against Central of St. Louis was equally thrilling." LaVern Allen, senior, was one of the steam roller crew and started in eight of the games of the season—missing out on one game due to illness. Allen had not been able to lie out for football consistently in his earlier years in school or he would have made the storting line-up before he had reached his senior year. Allen was another one of the boys to be selected on the all-conference eleven. “My greatest thrill of the year was the entire Wood River game when Alton made her opponents look like the remnant of the British army at the battle of Bunker Hill.” William “Bill" Hansen, senior, broke into the starting line-up in six of the season's games and saw service in the other three. Bill started at either right or left guard and his opponents soon learned that he was in the game. "The play that gave me my greatest q thrill came in our game with Hyde Park of Chicago, when I broke through their defense and threw Shaughnessy 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage. And, too, it was always a thrill to lie on the field with a championship for which to work." LeRoy Jones, senior, broke into the starting line-up in five games. LeRoy was one of those steady, dependable players that cause a coach no worry and can always lie relied upon to add plenty of fight to the game. “My greatest thrill came in the Belleville game when I helped drop the opposition by the wayside so that Joe Anderson was able to make a 53 yard run to a touchdown from punt formation. I did not have so much to do with the play but yet it sticks with me as an honor to have had a part in this particular play." IN THE PICTURE Left to Right William Hand . LaVern Allen Bill Hansen LeRoy Jones.Football Lettermen Joe Anderson, senior, came to us from Cleveland, Ohio, where he had played three years of football. In his first practice with the squad Joe showed promise of being the man to plug the one backfield opening. When the kick-off came in the Central game, Anderson was at the left half-back position and then had to grow up to the age limit of 20 after a total of four games in Alton High. “My greatest thrill came in the Wood River game when I was given perfect blocking by the entire team and tigged my way as they zagged Wood River out of the way and made my 53 yard touchdown sprint." Tommy Jones, sophomore, was one of the newest comers to the squad -coming from Roosevelt Junior High and making good with a bang. Tommy made the third one of the “Jones” boys on the squad.Tommy and LeRoy were brothers and all three were brothers in a common goal to give of their best for Red Bird success. It is good to know that Tommy has two more years in which to complete a good start on the gridiron. “My greatest thrill came in the Western game Thanksgiving Day as we gradually, but consistently hammered away at our opponents and rolled up a score which we knew they could not hope to overcome." Edward Bryant, senior, and substitute half back got into many of the games during the season and was in the starting line-up of the Alton-Wood River game. This is the way Ed tells of his "biggest moment" with the pig skin: “My greatest thrill in football cime in my first game playing against Granite City there in the season of 1934. Naturally I was excited when the coach sent me in, but on the first play I intercepted a Granite pass and carried it almost to the goal line before I was downed.” Ray Boster, senior, co-manager along with Langacher this season and the young man who last year handled the managerial duties alone. Ray knew how to be a friend to all the boys on the squad and how to encourage the crew to best efforts both on and off the field. Ray will be missed by players and coaches alike. “I shall remember the Thanksgiving Day game with Western in 1934, as my greatest thrill. The field goal Usinger kicked in the first half for his only attempt of the season in that style of play — and then that touchdown by Ashlock near the end of the fourth quarter. Yes those two plays and the whole 1935 season live on and on.” IN THE PICTURE Left to Right Joe Anderson Tom Jones . Edward Bryant . Ray Boster. Cheer Leaders This year's cheer leaders were none other than the three boys pictured above. During the football season, Drescher, Storm, and Laux were always on hand to lead a loyal band of lusty rooters. True it is a winning team has many supporters, but lust the same they have to have leadership in organized cheering. Interest slackened during the early part of the basketball season and then later ceased to exist at all. IN THE PICTURE Left to Right Eugene Laux Gene Storm Maurice Drescher.

When Anderson reached the age limit Bryant started the Wood River game and then Tommy Jones replaced Bryant as the fourth man in the backfield. LaVern Allen was ill and absent from school the day this picture was taken but he belongs with the nine in the line and from these ten the regular starting seven were selected. With a proven and reliable extra in the backfield and three extras in the line this was one year that the coach did not have to do any worrying about where to turn for replacements in the line or backfield. O Since each one of the players in this group picture won letters as well as one of the group on the next page we shall not say much here about each individual. Of the players pictured above, Usinger, Ashlock, Bennett, Anderson, Bryant, Bauser, LeRoy Jones, Kodros, Hansen, Burmaster and Harry Jones, together with Allen have played their last high school football game. This leaves Tommy Jones, Reynolds, Hand, and Harrison as a nucleus around which to build next year's crew. It has been wonderful from every standpoint to have had a group like this on page 62, and the one on page 63 to represent Alton High on the football field, at home as well as abroad. They have given a wonderful display of sportsmanship, fair play, honest and honorable athletic competition at every turn in the road. All hail the power of prestige these boys have brought their Alma Mater! May future athletes in football carry on from the point where these boys have left off. IN THE PICTURE First Row .

True it is that in this picture we find only one player who won a letter in the line of regular duty, hut from this group will come largely the replacements for both line and backfield graduates on this year’s team. While no one of these men has a job cinched for next year's team, such men as Cook, Huish, Tackwell, Bund, Bailey, and others got into enough games this year to gain some valuable experience. They are bound to meet some tough opposition from boys coming up from Roosevelt and East Junior. It was from this group that the eleven to oppose the regulars in practice was recruited. It is an unquestioned fact that these boys had to learn to take "it” in the slang of football in their scrimmages with the varsity. Whenever these boys scored a touchdown or stopped the regulars in practice they knew they had been somewhere, gone someplace, and accomplished something. It is not difficult to picture the gigantic task these boys had on their hands when they checked or stopped the steam roller crew. It is pretty difficult to imagine these boys getting the ball across the goal line for a touchdown even in scrimmage when the regulars suffered but two touchdowns to be scored against them in nine regular games while scoring forty-five for themselves. Unquestionably these subs, second stringers, shock troopers, and scrimmage men did their work well. IN THE PICTURE First Row . Pitkin Hamilton . Huish Brown Heath . Bund McDonald . Smithee .

Langacher.THE TATLER Basketball - First Team The group above carried the banner of the Red Birds on to the basketball court and placed 7 games in the won column while letting 9 decisions get into reverse. Yet, for the season as a whole, the Holt coached crew outscored their opponents 417414. Coach Holt came to Alton High from Boards town where he had the honor of coaching a basketball team that got to the state finals in 1935, losing out in the first round of play. The season opened at Beaumont High in St. Louis and after a slow start by Alton we were unable to overcome Beaumont's lead and dropped the first game of the season. However, the boys came right back and stopped the highly touted Jerseyville quintet on their floor, winning with a 14 point margin. In the first conference game of the season at Madison the Red Birds lost. Opening the home season against Collinsville the boys played their hardest driving game of the season and upset the Kahoks with a 16 point victory. In the next conference game Belleville nosed us out by 2 points at the very close of the game which was close throughout. When Beaumont came to Alton the local boys used their opponents strategy and built up a lead in the first half which Beaumont could not overcome. Next on the list came East Side, the only conference foe to drop both contests in the conference schedule to the Red Birds. Wood River spoiled the game on our floor by nosing us out on superior foul shooting but in the return engagement there the Oilers were victims of a more accurate basket shooting crew of Red Birds. Granite City continued her basketball supremacy over Alton by winning both contests. Madison at Alton was a second win for Madison in the most thrilling game of the season, 27-25, due to an early 14-0 lead after which Alton scored 25 points to Madison's 13 additional but fell 2 points short of victory. Alton defeated Belleville in their second meeting but lost to Collinsville. Tournament days and happy memories of 1935. But alas! This year Collinsville's Kahoks dropped the Red Birds 34-24 to end the season. Blondy Logan ended his basketball career at the end of the first semester. Next year's team loses Usinger, Echols and Sharkey through June graduation. IN THE PICTURE First Row Bill Sharkey Tom Jones . Osker Reynolds Bill Usinger . Ralph Echols .

Basketball -- Second Team This year a second string basketball schedule was carried out and ten boys got a lot of experience on the hardwood- meeting a team from each school with whom the varsity was to battle later in the evening. Taking the season as a whole the boys won 7 and lost 8 while scoring 299 points against their opponents 329. Coach Holt had charge of the second string players. The boys on this squad put up some very interesting games during the season and were buried under a one sided score in only one game during the season. One of the toughest games the boys played was with Beaumont here when they were nosed out in the final seconds of play with a final count of 18-16. At the close of this game the Beaumont coach disclosed the fact that his second team was made up of seniors who were not quite fast enough to make the first team squad. The season's experience has been valuable to the boys on the squad and will be a big help in sending seasoned material into the first team squad for 1936-37- IN THE PICTURE . First Row Melvin Rust .

Attendance at matches here, held at the close of school, showed a big improvement over the previous year and bids fair to build up to an enthusiastic and sizable attendance. Alton won from Madison while losing to East Side and Granite in matches during the conference season. Hand and Dilley were undefeated in conference matches. In a state meet held at Tuscola, second place was won in the heavyweight class by Dutch Hand and fourth places were won by Sweeney in the 165 pound class and Perica in the 105 pound class. The three boys with best records for the season were Hand, McDonald and Dilley. They will be back next season as will Sweeney, Perica, and Waters to form a nucleus of experienced wrestlers.

There was a larger number of boys out for the squad this year than usual but Coach Jackson is still anxious to get boys out as freshmen so that they have a chance to develop by the time they are juniors and seniors. Individually—“Fat” Harrison leads the squad with Bill Usinger in second place. We have been well represented this season in the mile and two miles relays and medleys. In the former, Bethards, Tom Jones, Dutch Hand, and Hansen have stepped quite well and in the latter Roberts, Fox, Reynolds, and Russell have been point winners. Hansen has some points to his and the school's credit in the 440. Alton placed second in the Granite City relays when we won the mile and two miles in the relays as well as the medley, discus, shot put, and a third in the javelin. In a district track meet at Granite we took fourth place when “Fat" captured the shot put from Corso of Hillsboro who won the State meet in the shot in 1935, with a second in the discus also by “Fat,” and a second place in the javelin by Usinger, with a third in the 440 by Hansen. "Fat" Harrison and Bill Usinger were the only members of the squad to qualify for the State meet as no one with a place below second in a district meet can go to the State. This was the last chance for these boys at the State as Bill graduates in June and “Fat” next January. Bill failed to win any points at the Suite meet but “Fat" came back with a first place in the discus and a fourth in the shot put. As the book goes to press there are two meets left—one at Wood River and one at Taylor-ville, where the boys are pretty certain to give a good account of themselves. All power to this year's track squad and point winners. We hope that they have paved the way and pointed the direction for future tracksters. IN THE PICTURE First Row Fox Fansler Bethards .

As a result of the conference inactivity Alton has per-mitted tennis to simmer to a low ebb. However, the present school year has seen more tennis activity here than for a couple of years. In the fall of 1935, only two matches were played, both with Edwardsville. These matches resulted in an even number of wins in the total number of matches played. Spring tennis brought about more activity than had been shown in the fall. The season's activity opened with an indoor tournament held in the gym. The winner was Joe Arndt who defeated Sidney Drake in the finals. A squad of seven was chosen from the best records of tournament play—the seven whose pictures appear above. During the regular playing season this spring, matches were played with Western Military Academy, Granite City, and Edwardsville. Two tournaments were participated in Belleville, a district tournament on May 2, and Granite City, a conference meet on May 23. The result of the Belleville play was as follows: Burch lost to Trenkle of New Athens 6-0, 6-0. Thompson and Huebner won from Mudge and Bocker of Edwardsville 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 but lost to Anderson and Glasgow of East St. Louis 6-1, 6-1. Arndt and Drake defeated Owens and Schwind of Belleville 8-6, 6-2 but lost to Merkle and Winter of Edwardsville 6-3, 6-4. In the last match played before the book went to press Alton defeated Edwardsville two matches to one. Abbott lost to Simpson 6-3, 6T. Huebner defeated Bocker 6-4,6-0. Arndt and Drake defeated Merkle and Winter 8-6, 3-6, 6-4. These Edwardsville boys in the last match earned a trip to the State meet in tournament play a few days before this match.

She had planned for some time to arrange a club of girls who showed a tendency towards leadership. Certain such girls were selected from each class of the high school. When the Auxiliary was started it consisted of fifteen members. Nancy Cousley was the first president. A plan for helping freshmen girls to become acquainted with high school life was decided upon by this first group. Each member of the Council was to act as a “big sister" to a group of freshmen girls. This plan has been carried out during the following years. During the past three years the Council has been very prominent in Alton High. Its purpose, "service," has been very successfully performed. The Council girls are ready to do any service required of them. They help in the clinic, act as hostesses in the main office, help keep the campus beautiful, and help enforce the rules of courtesy. The Council gives "capers" each semester and the last two semesters has held school dances. The money earned in the Council goes to charity and the lunch fund.

Quill and Scroll The Lovejoy Chapter of Quill and Scroll was formed in 1927- 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. The 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 approved by the National Secretary-Treasurer. In 1935, the Chapter won second honor in a National Quill and Scroll contest by submitting the Alton High Times. This was a great honor considering the fact that about 1000 schools (National and International) entered the contest. This year the Chapter won a first place award in the Quill and Scroll contest with the Times paper. OFFICERS, FIRST SEMESTER Fred List, President .

It was organized at Chicago in 1919, after a long-felt need for an honor organization national in scope for secondary schools. The Alton Chapter of the National Honor Society was chartered in the spring of 1927. with eleven members, under the sponsorship of Misses Girtwright and Cates. The purpose of the society is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage development of character in the students of Alton High. He auspices of Only fifteen per cent of the students of the 4-1 class in the upper third of the class, who have been rated in leadership, service, and character by the faculty are eligible for membership. The society meets once a month, at which meetings its business is transacted and outside persons are invited to speak.

This year it played at five football games and four basketball games and marched in numerous civic parades such as Halloween and Armistice Day. The band gave two assemblies, one alone, and one with the orchestra. This year the band won first class rating in group D at the Illinois State Band Association Contest at Highland.

The club has well realized its aim. At first the best work submitted was included in the collection compiled yearly by the Quill and Scroll; but soon after its organization the club began publishing a magazine of its own, called “Wings.” Into this magazine go literary writings of a wide variety of poems, a wide variety of subjects. According to the present arrangement, “Wings" will be published exclusively for the files and the members this year. The club has done well in its aim to "sponsor creative writing by other than club members"; for it has sponsored a short story contest for non-club members, and has co-sponsored a school-wide picture interpretation contest. Besides these activities, the club has also written a pledge to the school flag, and has helped to draw up a courtesy code. Membership to the club is by elections held each May and January, in which the teachers in the English department vote on eligible juniors. The Creative Writing Club is dedicated to the spirit of creative effort in the arts.

I readily consented and immediately made reservations on a plane bound for Europe. To my surprise, the pilot was my old classmate, LaVern Allen with Lester Doerr as co-pilot. Knowing it would be a long tiresome trip I took Bernadine Bauer along as my nurse. There were many passengers on the plane including Clifford Alld-i edge, the renowned poet, who has rented a cottage on the Rhine in order to get inspiration for his work; Mildred Batchelor, well-known social worker who was on her way to Ethiopia to better the conditions there; Eldon Arbuthnot, a professional tramp, who was on his way to Russia to "tramp" a new railroad to China; John Mehilos who was on his way to England to teach King Edward to ride a motorcycle; Magdelene Fahrig was going to Paris to “show them how it's done in America"; Millicent Wieland has great plans for winning the cup in the Paris auto races; Joe VanBuskirk was also on the plane. He was on his way to Greece to teach the people shorthand (he won't have much trouble it's all Greek to him anyway.) We were not more than two days out at sea when something went wrong with one of the motors. The mechanics, Adrian Metcalf and John Ross, worked on the motor while Stewardess Betty Phelps comforted the passengers. The motor could not be fixed and finally Allen sent a “ W.H.H.” (we want help) which was received by Joe Boedek-er, radio operator on board the ship “The C. C. Hanna." As luck would have it the ship was near by and in a short while we landed on it where we were greeted by Captain Ed Bryant. Among those who arrived on the scene were Muriel Block who runs an ice cream shoppe in Greenland for the Eskimos; Virginia Holt, famous lawyer, who is on her way to take her position on the bench of the World Court; Marjorie Lane and Winona Voss are on their way to China to start a Drum Bugle Corps; Pauline Souris who was on her way to design and model dresses for the Royal families of Europe; Quentin Wiseman, a direct descendent of one of the “Three Wisemen" was on his way to take up his career as a minister in Bethlehem. After greeting my old friends, I asked the head steward, Maurice Wickenhauser, to show me to my stateroom. He told me that because of the crowded conditions aboard, it would be necessary for me to share a room. As this was satisfactory to me, I was escorted to my room and introduced to my room-mate. To my delight I found one of my old class mates, Lilly Broer, who was on her way to Europe to lecture on “Ways of” Dressing for dinner we talked over our high school days and when the dinner bell rang, departed for the dining-room. There we were seated at a table with Dick Abbott, a renowned forester, who was to lecture in Europe on the California Red Wood trees; Erma Paul who has received the office of secretary to Hitler; Robert McKee, Alpian guide, who has saved the lives of many mountain climbers. During dinner we enjoyed talking about old times and after dinner wandered into the ball-room, where the entertainment was to begin. At the far end of the room was the orchestra. Above was the name “Marshall." I hurried to the pit and found it really was my old friend. Yes, Eldwin Marshall had made good and was a famous orchestra leader. In the band was Clifford Manlove, who played the cornet and Gene Schwartzbeck, who could really make the piano talk. The featured soloist was Vernon Schwartz, who has become known as the "Bing Crosby" of 1946. Virginia Breyfogle, Nancy Newland and June Noble were featured as the famous singing trio. Suddenly the lights were dimmed and a couple 112THE TATLER Shoes for the MODERN MISS and the Well-dressed BOY STUDENT Morrissey Bros. Alton’s Headquarters for Quality Footwear J R Motor Supply Co.

The boy was Sidney Drake while his beautiful partner was Dorothy Hellrung. The performance ended and we all retired to our rooms to prepare to land in the morning. At the dock, our baggage was inspected by Kermit Dickmann and Carl Henneman. After the inspection I got a cab which was one of the many owned by Forrest Cox; the driver, by the way, was John Ashmore. I went to one of the famous hotels in France and was greeted by Ralph Echols who has dropped his "Southern Drawl" and taken on a French accent. Behind the registration desk was Margaret Hanken and the boy who took care of our baggage was Spencer Cannon. He told me that Mary Caldwell was also employed in that hotel. After resting a while, I started out on a tour of the shops of Paris. One dress shop with a name I can’t recall was owned by Kathryn Head. Kathleen Lusher, Virginia Murphy and Virginia Schoeneweis modeled the beautiful French gowns while Bernice Eddington served me a delicious cup of tea. After buying several gowns I left the shop to keep my appointment at the “Pariee Shoppe" which was owned by Helen Manns, the famous woman hair stylist. Her professional model was Eleanor Kline, who now has her hair a bright red. My nails were manicured by Vista Kelley. For lunch 1 went to one of the many street cifes, where I found Grace Bogart acting as head waitress. She employed Alva Heuer as a helper and Billie Holladay as cook. With such pleasant surroundings, I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious meal Billie had prepared. Later in the afternoon I visited the famous Paris art museum where I found the masterpieces of Newton Baker and Mark Jacobson. John Gerard has a photo shop in Paris and proudly displayed the pictures of several of the crown heads of Europe. Homer Adams has a printing company and upon inquiring about one of the newspapers printed there, I learned that it was edited by John Wilkinson with Ralph Hcrzler and Russell Eisner as his assistants. Poor Johnny has become quite gray trying to publish a paper a day. At Alton High there was only one paper every two weeks. But he is very successful and happy in his position. The society editor, by the way, is the same as the "Times" had Evelyn Kane. Of course she finds more to write about in Paris than in Alton High. The circulation managers were Bill Jaeger and Elmer Schmidt. I also learned that LaFay McDonald was running the paper (?) mill. For entertainment that evening I attended the wrestling matches. There 1 found two old friends competing against each other. They were Joe Mackel and Nat Fox. Of course the best man won. Another feature that evening was the match between John Unterbrink and Orville Jackson. The next day 1 started shopping bright and early. In a shoe shop 1 found Merlyn Schreiber. I learned that he had married Celeste Wolf soon after graduation and that they were both very happy. In the afternoon 1 attended the movies. The box-office girl was Alice Downes. The ticket-taker was Owen Hamilton and the usher was Leonard Allen. On the screen that day was one of the latest pictures, directed by Charles Feldwisch, who took up directing as a hobby. His featured star was Ann Hyndman who played opposite the 1946 “Clark Gable," Chester Logan. 114THE TATLER 84 Years Continuous Growth as Alton s Leading and Most Reliable Jewelry Store JEWELERS OPTOMETRIST Established 1852 GOULDING’ c 111 West Third Street Insurance of All Kinds J.

An advertisement was in the paper announcing the formal opening of the flower shop owned by Eileen Jones and also an advertisement showing the famous styles set by Evert Kingery, who has followed the footsteps of his father and has become a barber. Margaret Moore, by the way, is helping him. The next morning I left the hotel and caught the train for Italy. Some of the pass-engers on the train were Bill Usinger, who has just gained his life-time ambition he's the leader of a band; LeRoy Jones, finally conquering his habit of blushing, has become a famous lecturer on science. Arriving in Naples in the afternoon, I took a cab, driven by Melvin Taylor, and went to the hotel, owned by Tillman Bond. Here I found Bill Bunse employed as elevator boy. After dinner, which was served by Eunice Jenkins, I went to one of the night clubs of the city. There I was entertained by Marian Beers, Gene McGinnis, Genevieve Johnson, and Bette Pierce who made up the chorus. The star of the show was Mae Lewis. Returning home, 1 turned on the radio. Tuning in on "B.U.N.K.” I heard the announcer, Paul Moore, introduce the "kiddies" program stirring Henry Rickerman, who was known to all the kiddies as "Uncle Henry." After this program I listened to Jean Turk who spoke on the fashions of the day. Later 1 heard Bill Hansen who was always known in school as the "shower-room crooner." After a short stay in Naples, I left for Venice. There I met two old friends acting as gondoliers. They were Davis Rasar and Bill Sharkey. I learned from these boys that Nelson Russell owned practically all the gondolas in Italy and was doing a very good business. He employed Marjorie Pipkin as bookkeeper and Betty Ann Tonsor and Ruby Long as his secretaries. Speaking of secretaries, Frances Purcell won the title of the world's best stenographer. There were several shops in Venice owned by old friends. A wine shop was operated by Buddy Riggs and although he said he didn't drink he was a very good authority on wines; an antique shop was owned by the partners Clara Snyder and Catherine Veltjes; Ruth Vance teaches the Italians to do the Con-, tinental while Frank Perry tries to teach them to croon; Marshall Selkirk is known as the "Venice Sheik" and has a hard time keeping Ruth Jourdain and Mary Davis off his trail; Pauline Whetzel has a play ground for the children on an island in one of the main waterways. The next day I left by bus for Geneva, Switzerland. The bus driver was Lloyd Barber. As we rode along the sights were explained by Ed Evans. In Geneva, I visited Robert Curvey and Lucinda DeVancey Curvey—for they are married now. The next morning I went yachting with Roy Tedrick, wealthy cheese manufacturer. The pilot was Harry Henderson. The yacht itself was one built by a company owned by Eugene Boker and Richard Widaman. Roy had as his guests Vernon Dehner, wealthy cattle man from the West, who was taking a well-earned vacation; Harold Luly who owns a chain of bowling alleys in the mountains; Nellie Long, candy saleslady, who is trying to persuade the Swiss that they should eat candy instead of cheese; Erwin Welhart, who 116THE TATLER Chas.

Returning from my yachting trip, I visited Maurice Drescher, delegate tc the League of Nations from the United States. Roy Brown, judge of the World Court, was in conference with Drescher when I arrived. I waited in the library with Loyce Woolf, an economist from Russia. After a short stay in Switzerland I took passage on the dirigible “Hindenburg." John Lavitus had taken the place of Count Eckcner. The relief pilots were Kenneth Myers and Charles Kubernot. The head steward was James Simpson, while Cecil Stauffer acted as radio operator. Arlon Pullen and Robert Hoering, two great Russian violinists, were on their way home after giving a very successful tour over Europe; Eugene Peterson, a well-known lecturer, was returning to his teaching position at Hidelburg University after a speaking tour through Europe. I learned from him that Marietta Coons and Gwyneth Speer were English teachers while Anna Mae Fessler was head of the girls' dormitory. We landed in Leipsig, Germany, early in the day. 1 was just walking along the street looking for the hotel “Ratsekeller" when 1 met Bertha Thomasson, proprietor of the Old Maids' Home of Leipsig. She informed me that one of her patients was Lillian Wilkening. After 1 was established in my hotel I rang for some ice water and who should bring it up but Russell Osborne. Who would ever think it! And then the next morning the door bell rang and in came the matron, Marjorie Glover. She informed me that there was a duel scheduled at 1:15 between Herman Doerr and Lloyd Langacher. I was anxious to see this so at 12:30 I took a bus to the arena. The bus driver was none other than Girl Farrar. I had an enjoyable time at the duel and it was interesting, although they both lost only an ear. That evening I went to one of the swankiest night clubs in Germany. I was escorted by Charles Jones, wealthy German banker. The main feature of the evening was a dance and song number by the Mitchell girls, Gwendolyn and Eddie Mae, and Vitula Henderson. The cigarette girls, Audrey Duffey and Marjorie Killian were also my old school chums. The next day I started by train to Russia. On arriving in Russia I met Vernelle Ellspermann and Helen Ladendorff who were President and Vice-president respectively, of Russia. My! how time flies. They informed me that Charles Moxey and Nelson Miller were running for their offices in the spring and that it was going to lie a close race. The next day, my woman guide, Thelma Ennis, took me to visit Rubinoff, the great violin-est. Unfortunately he was not home but his house keeper, Grace Votrain, informed me that he would be in next summer. I said I wouldn't wait, and being hungry, 1 left his home in search of a restaurant. While Arvelle Smith took my order, I chatted with Richard Schmoeller, the Russian minister to China, and Mary Waters, a prima dona of Russia. After seeing so many of my old classmates, I felt so much 1 letter that I decided to go back to the dear old U. S.
