football Lettermen il,
CARL BAILEY, junior, playing his hrst regular
season in the backfield gave a good account of
his previous year's training when much of this
year's team served as the scrimmage group to
oppose the '35 "Steam Roller" Championship
eleven. Bailey said, "I used to think it great
to be on the squad that played against "Fat."
My biggest thrill came when I found I had won
a chance to start with Harrison on the Hrst team."
CHARLES TACKWELL, sophomore, 135 pounds and
the lightest man to hold the center position in
the history of present day athletics of Alton
High was playing his Hrst season of high school
football and did a line piece of work Charlie
too found a thrill in football He said In the
Collinsville game when Fat called for a punt
formation to try for a field goal I was excited
but got a pass back that was set up and Fat s
toe put the bill over the bar for 3 points
BILL BUND yunior was ilso playing his second
season on the squad and got into enough battles
to win both his spurs and a letter Bill should
be a regular fixture in next vear s line A little
more height and weight this year would have
put Bill into the regular starting line up A
Bill looked over the football season yust closing
he said The biggest thrill of the season is aw
fully hard to name There were many thrills BAILEY TACKWELL
but Ill pick the Granite City game although we BUND BROWN
ROBERT BROWN junior playing his first season drew a place in the line and did a good iob of it
being dependable and reliable along with ability to take it as well as dish it out In other words
Brown fitted into the scheme of things on defense as well as offense A year to grow in both
height and weight will make Brown a tougher guy to stop than he was this year I do not know
that I can pick out any single play of the season that was the most thrilling The entire season
was a thrill to me

LeRoy for HGVTISOD if F W-M .wma
IT is beyond doubt 'a truth that Fat Harrison has made
the best athletic record of any Alton High player in the
last twenty years and one of the best records in all the
athletic history of Alton High Fat has always had
size natural athletic ability personality good manners
ease elegance poise honesty honor reputation and
character on his side Endowed hy nature with some
of these attributes he had the happy faculty to develop
Fat began his athletic career in Alton High in the
fall of 1933 when Coach jackson was badly in need of
another lineman Fat clicked and clicked so well that
he not only won a football letter but made the all con
ference team Fat never laid down in a football game
and never failed to be in his regular place at the start of the
game throughout 4 years of play If deception in play
was needed Fat could qualify however straaght football
was usually his choice and opponents frequently used 2
quite often 3 men to stop Fat A keen example of
Fat s deception came in 34 against Western Military
Alton High 3 Wcstern7 4th quarter Fat dropped out
of the line to the backheld on offense a punt formation
but Fat just didn t punt He dashed down the field
and a surprised Western outnt finally downed him deep
in their own territory and before Western could pull them
selves together an Alton touch down gave that thrilling
scintillating heart pounding never to be forgotten 97
game But Fat did not make the touch down he was
back in the line and the regular back held got the touch down credit
and a member of the starting line up all his high school career Size and determination found Fat
recovering far more than his share of re bounds and a threat under the basket
Track puts a player on his own Here Fat won honors He set conference records in shot
put and discus In the State meet in 1936 Fat won hrst in the discus and fourth in shot put
