Mr. jureziz, Mr. Geddes, Mr. Jackson Football . . . Season of 1939 Football practice opened early in September with many a query as to Alton's chances in '39. No one seemed very enthusiastic about any chance for the Redbirds to go places. However, Coach Jackson set to work along with his new assistant- Geddes. Geddes played his college football at Cregon State. The squad was large and jureziz- another new man on our coaching staff-helped out by taking the boys who were too light or too inexperienced for tough football this year and worked with them looking toward 1940. Coach Jackson had Schreiber, Schwartz, Diaz, Redmond, McCaskill, Lazar, Moore, Stallings, Beane and Wood for a group around which to build. All these men had been regulars or had seen some service in the 1938 campaign. One thing evident from the first day was this-the Redbird outfit was light and how could this be overcome? Then, too, a new center to take the place of 138 lb. Chuck Tackwell must be found. But from prob' lems to the regular season we shall go. Central of St. Louis helped the Redbirds pry off the lid for the 1939 football season. Schwartz and Schrieber at ends, Diaz and Lowery as tackles, Gaines and Ash at guards, Moore, center, Wood at quarterback, McCaskill and Redmond as half' backs, and Lazar at fullback were starters. Before the game had gone very far it appeared that the Redbirds might be a tough team to beat since they were passing accurately, blocking and punting well, and playing smoothly. When the final whistle was tooted the press found Alton had won 25fO while nearly every player on the Alton High squad had had a chance to play. Madison was the first opponent in conference play and they threw up such a strong defense that the lirst quarter had Alton fans wondering what might happen. In the second quarter passes began to fly with Lazar, Redmond, McCaskill and Schwartz having much to do with this "air" barrage. Thirtyfive Redbirds saw service in the game and our third string players were on Madif Football Lettermen L' 75wasL2ffrg'3giS?Wx?i75iQfL Afjglsigl555ffgmbiiwfaifwhiiiiiff George Lazar, Ted Vambaketes, Bill Gaines James Stallings, Bob Diaz, Matt McCaskill, Hugh Lowery. son's 2 yard line when the game ended. Touchf downs were scored by McCaskill, Redmond, Lazar 2. Madison had lost 28fO. Edwardsville Tigers were all set to go places in the conference this year and owned some nice wins when the Redbirds journeyed there for the third game of the season. Using the L'airways" in the third quarter, Wood, Schwartz, Redmond, Lazar and McCaskill tossed, passed over, around and past Edwardsville so effectively that the Tigers had to eat L'crow" while McCaskill took the touchdown pass for what proved to be the victory. Late in the fourth quarter the Tigers drove to the Alton 3 yard line but Stallings and Moore played a hand in giving Alton the ball. Stallings replaced Schreiber at right end when Bob was injured in this game. Jim never gave up his line position during the remainder of the year. A Redbird victory 6fO. Wood River brought a good and heavy team to Alton and at least 1200 fans. Secret practice sessions for a week had the Oilers at their best. They were all set to stop Schwartz as a pass receiver. So-the Alton lightfweights played straight football on the ground. Near the end of the lirst quarter McCaskill caught the "coffin corner" and the ball went out of bounds on the Ciler 1 yard line. Joe Astroth punted to the 29 but Alton carried the ball to the 2 yard line as the quarter ended. Two plays in quarter 2 netted an Alton touchdown by McCaskill. In the fourth quarter Lazar recovered an Oiler fumble. He shot an unexpected pass to Schwartz on our Hrst play that was stopped on the 11 yard line.

Geddes and Jureziz found a big task in building a team since Pinkerton, Lazar, Campbell, and Freeman were the only ones from the first team squad of last year on hand and of these Lazar and Pinkerton were to be through at the end of the Hrst semester. Many new faces were on hand and the coaches set to work to see what could be done toward building a formidable team. The Redbird basketeers opened their bag of tricks at Gillespie on December 8, but Red Nicolet's crew had a short season of practice and enough games experience that they set us back by a 2646 tune. Alton had plenty of good shots but the ball wouldn't go through the payfoff station. The next night we played host to Jerseyville and upset them 43f2O. The following week the squad invaded Litchfield and grew better as the game grew older. Litchheld was plenty thankful to hear the Bnal whistle while they still had a 3 point lead and won 33f30. Even in this defeat it began to look hopeful for a good season. Conference hostilities opened December 15, at Wood River. Our sharpshooters were as scarce as chicken teeth and it seemed as if the Oilers had magnetized their basket and were using a metal ball. We lost 43f15. Again Alton hopes were sent high wh an Edwards' ville dropped into our gym and tl' wed out again after losing 2045. During the Christmas hol .ya the squad journeyed to Mt. Vernon 9 the invitational 1 ir 'ki' which Alton won ' 1935. A slow lirst 3 quarters lost for Alton hen the fourth quarter produced as many p ' ts as the first three had. Albion won 32f2 and Granite City won the tournament. f Play resumed after vacation on January 5, whe we met Collinsville there. They proceeded to p aster us 40 to 25 but we drew blood again the "t night when we came through late in the fourth quarter to subdue Madison 31f3O on their floor. The following week we were off color and lost to Belleville, there, 3Of15 on Friday night, but hit payfdirt in East Side on Saturday night where we upset Pick Dehner's "Packers" 38f31. Granite City mowed us down 45f26 and looked like champions as early as January 19. The next night found Alton in Vandalia and with 3 minutes to go Vandalia pushed into a lead-we lost 32f28. Wood River called here january 25 and got away with a 39f29 victory to appease their anger of a year before when we stopped them in an over' time game. Our second home game of that week found Decatur scoring in the first half every time they shot and we lost 43f23. Edwardsville's Tigers "laid" for us February 2, and pasted a defeat on us 3861. The next night the Kahoks scalped us right here on our own floor. The next week Madison came here and lost 2922 and then Belleville the very next night nosed us out 24f21 in a tight battle. February 16, East St. Louis brought our home games for the season to a close by letting us win 42f35. A week later Conference play ended at Granite where we were trounced 6lf3O. The State Champs were on their way. Troy was made awfully happy in the sectional meet at Edwardsville on March 7, when they spoiled our tournament chances 38f36. With hopes we look to 194Of41 since the second team won 11 games and lost 4 for a "hope" builder. lklfllf -Y-X' ll' .

Track Considering that this is the first year that Alton High School has participated in track for several years, the season as a whole can be conf sidered a success although only one meet was won. Success in track depends to a considerable extent upon experience which you can say the boys were getting this year, under the guidance of Coach Jureziz. Nothing spectacular was expected from the boys this year, although several boys showed promise of developing into better than average track men. These are: Kenneth DeSherlia, James Coleman, Ray Platter, and Gilbert Whitten who are not graduating and will be back for next year's squad and Dick Yeakey, James Stallings, John Shoppet, and Edward Blair who graduate.

LD 1 Zn Victor "Vic" Schwartz "Vic" Schwartz came to us from Roosevelt Junior High three seasons ago. His size, speed, and football sense soon showed up and "Vic" made an end position secure his first year in senior high. Heighth and speed always made "Vic" a good target for passes and even his first season he received his share of passes. In his junior and senior years "Vic" served as "captain" band each season showed him to be a better player than the last preceding season-in fact game by game he improved. The Tatler hereby honors another "Allf State" player of Alton High, a product of merit.

Student Council The Student Council of the Alton High School was organized in March, 1938, with the aid of several faculty members and representatives of the clubs of the school. Miss Paul was chosen as faculty advisor. The acting chairman of the meeting was Gladys Watkins. jane Kane was appointed secretary. On March 21, 1938, the first meeting of the temporary Student Council was held. First officers were: Gladys Watkins, chairman, and Jane Kane, secretary. On March 25, Eileen Ash succeeded Jane Kane as secretary. The membership of the temporary Council was made up of representatives elected from the counsellor groups. The meetings occured at irregular intervals at 3:35 on school days. At the first allfschool Election in October, 1938, officers elected for the year, October, 1938, to March, 1939, from nominations made by the 3f1 and 3f2 classes were: president, Bill Drake, vice' president, Harold Patterson, and from the student council were: secretary, Eileen Ash, and treasurer, Lois Watkins. On February 5, 1939, for the first time, the council met in the auditorium on Friday during the home room period. Instead of being elected from counsellor groups, from this date the rep' resentatives were elected from the home rooms. The reason for the change was to make it possible for the representatives to report more readily to the groups which they represented, and to make 0 O it possible for all representatives to be present. Officers for the year, March, 1939, to March, 1940, were: president, Betty Ash, vicefpresident, jim Stallings, secretary, first semester, Bette Hart, second semester, Audrey Bernard. The aims of the Student Council are expressed in the pledge taken by its members: I will strive for better government ideals and for the uplift of the association and school, both alone and with others. I will obey and respect the laws and do my best to incite a like obedience and respect in others. I will strive to quicken the sense of responsibility among the students at large, so that we may transmit our student government inheritance, not less and worse, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us. And this I promise. OFFICERS Bill Ash ...................,.....,.. President Lois Watkins ............ .... V icefPresident Anita Faye Cartwright ...............

OO OO 0 0 O O Camera Club The Camera Club, reforganized in September, 1937, has expanded to its present size by the gradual growing of wide spread interest in photo' graphy. The members, both boys and girls, headed by their sponsors, Mr. Clark, Mr. Kober, and Mr. Thompson, have gone far in the different fields of photography, making use of their newly completed darkroom. A This room consists of an outer and inner darkf room. In the outer darkroom there is space for drying prints and films, and for meeting.

On exhibit night the members exhibit mounted prints in the library in the form of a Salon. The pictures are the choice prints of the different members. The club's main interest is to give the members a chance to learn more about photography. This is done in the form of programs. In the past there have been talks on composition, movies, natural color slides, and prize winning pictures. OFFICERS SECOND SEMESTER Bill Godwin ..,...................,.

CZD During this required year of art the student must have made a grade of "B" or above. C31 A student must receive a majority vote when voted into the club.

Warriors. We scored in second quarter on a pass and later we downed our own punt on Granite's 1 yard stripe. They punted to their 27 and Wood raced back to the 15. Two line plays netted number 2. Then for number 3 we started on our 20 making 80 yards and a touchdown before Granite found who really had the ball. Granite threatened only once. Stallings, McCaskill and Lazar scored. Final Of20. We traveled to Collinsville remembering the Arctic zone of 1937 when the Kahoks got a 6f0 win but this year the Redbirds vowed "They Shall Not Pass." The Redbirds lost a counter on an end zone fumble but came back to life and marched from the middle of the fie'd to score. Schwartz and Lazar pass combination netted an' other touchdown. Each of the two times the Kahoks started somewhere they found Harvey Moore stealing their "well" directed pass and the Indians died peacefully on the short end of a 0f13 score. Our scorers were Stallings and Lazar. Let's make it NINE in a row was Alton's battle cry for the traditional Turkey Day game. For 8 years Western had sought victory and it was in 1934 they had scored their last points. Western had seen a poor season pass by partly due to injuries-Alton for once was conceded victory, a position Coach Jackson never Wants. A great day-a crowd-and what a game. The heavy cadets were tough on line plays but susf ceptible to passes and the faster charging Red' birds. Alton scored in second quarter when Schwartz lateraled to Lazar on the Cadet 13 after he himself had received McCaskill's pass on the 28. It was one of the season's fastest pass combinaf tions. Western failed to score as the half ended with the Cadets short of the goal line by a mere half foot. In the second half Beane blocked a punt of Western on their 13, and Stallings made quick work of a touchdown. A few moments later an' other forward and lateral McCaskill to Lazar to Schwartz added Number 3 touchdown. Late in the 4th quarter Casperson eluded the Alton eleven for a 29 yard run to Alton's eleven. Here their one good pass clicked and the game ended Alton 21-Western 6. YESA9 in a vow.
