 :;V; - ■ , - THE 19 4 1 KL LJa i$ A COLLECTION GATHERED FROM CAFETERIA YARM camdi i o r.n iP f: i r i F l• - 1 AT-HLETIC II J COLLECTED c Jg DAILY ALTONTATLERALICE GATES Dedication The 1941 Tatler Staff takes pleasure in dedicating this volume of The Tatler to Miss Alice Gates, one of our faculty who has served our (and her) Alma Mater faithfully for more than twenty years. Miss Gates has taught several different subjects during this time but Math is the subject through which many of our school have learned to know her. Miss Gates has a sense of humor which is mixed with her work in Math in such a way that pupils feel at home in her classes. Her desire to help each pupil succeed is as sincere for the one who tries and succeeds in part only as for those who make A grades.3ln jflemonam 'f' During our present school year the Supreme Architect of the Universe has called to the life immortal two of our custodians— Leslie Thompson Leon Jenkins Mr. Thompson helped install our heating system and upon completion of the building the Board of Education selected him to serve as head of the custodian staff. His work was carried out efficiently and effectively for nearly thirteen years. Mr. Jenkins became one of the two firemen whose duties were to keep us warm in winter and our campus presentable in summer. Both of these men were faithful in their work and all of us shall carry in our memories a thought of appreciation for these two who did their part in making our school life more pleasant.OUR fACULTY DUR f€ATUREV ADVERTISERSThis is the way Our building appears From Humbert StreetW. R. CURTIS Superintendent Board of Education L. J. Misecades J. J. Beeby R. H. Richards Dr. Groves Smith, President W. R. Curtis Dr. H. E. Middleton M. W. Acker Hugh Horstman, Secretary In his twentieth year as superintendent of the Alton Public Schools, Mr. Curtis has had much to do with getting our new junior high building under way on the hill west of the pit. It will be a much needed addition to our school system as is evidenced by our 7:45 to 4:30 school day in our present building the long day made necessary because of the crowded conditions in our present senior high building. The extra duties of a building program together with his regular duties have made a very busy year for Mr. Curtis.C. C. HANNA Principal Mr. Hanna in his eleventh year as principal ran into his most difficult year in school work, but not from administrative angles. Laid low by ill health early in the fall our principal was hospitalized for a month, but the surgeon's skill returned Mr. Hanna to us and the second semester of the school year has found him as busy as ever before. Our Deans DINSMORE WOOD Dean of Boys—Civics Assistant Principal CAROLYN WEMPEN Dean of Girls—-Mathematics Neither Mr. Wood nor Miss Wempen have been called upon this school year to settle as many serious disciplinary problems as one would expect in a school the size of Alton High, yet both have been kept very busy with their other duties. Both the Boys’ Cabinet and Girls' Council have been active around school this year and the more active these organizations are the busier our deans have been.4 Ellen Julia Coulter Clerk Dorothy Gates Registrar Resigned—March 31, 1941 Dolores Martin Registrar Since April 1, 1941 Ellen Machin Latin Dorothy Colonius English Leah Ridgely Latin, English John Bruno History English Commercial Geography Ada Klump Math Alice Gates Math Jewell Sutherland English Mary Sidwell Household Arts Bernice Williamson ArtVernon Hainline Manual Arts Bon O.

Bill Ash Football Season of 1940 Robert P. Geddes, Assistant Coach Ray L. Jackson, Coach Football practice got under headway for the Redbirds on September 5, as the first two days of school were given over to issuing equipment. Coach Jackson and his assistant Geddes were faced with such tasks as developing new ends who could receive passes on offense and do their part on defense since we couldn't keep the Stallings-Schwartz ends combination of ’39. There were other line problems such as a new center and guard and tackle positions to be taken care of. Ted Vambeketes and Bill Gaines, regulars from '39—Ray Block, Bill Ash, Bill Chew, and Craig Beane, four boys who had considerable sub-experience in ’39 came through together with a “find” in Maurice Pfeffer to give us our seven regular line men. Ed Wood and Matt McCaskill were regular backfield men carried over from '39 and from the group of Kenny Peters, Bob Bruce, Football Lettermen Ray Block Carl Platter Harry Luddeke Bill Chew Bill Gaines Carl Platter Carl Carter, Ray Platter, and Harry Luddeke, the two to work with Wood and McCaskill were selected. Gridiron activities were scheduled to begin on our field against Central of St. Louis, but about ten days before the game Central cancelled and Alton was unable to get an opponent lined up for the season’s opener on September 27, and the Redbirds got their fi.st test under fire with Collinsville on October 4, when the Kahoks were forced to bite the dust in a 13-0 Redbird victory. This game was played at home to a good sized crowd. October 11, the Redbirds journeyed to Granite City to be guests of the Happy Warriors for an evening. Granite proved to be the perfect hosts and Alton tucked its second straight 13-0 victory under her belt. October 18 found the Redbirds guests of Madison and our boys found Madison to be one of the toughest foes met and defeated during the season. The two teams played a scoreless tie until late in the game. In fact the crowd had become settled to a scoreless tie when the Redbirds pushed over a touchdown and point, thus adding Madison’s scalp to theirKpnny Peters Jack Naughton Jim Buck Ray Platter Maurice Ppeffer Matt McCaskill season's list of victories on a 7-0 count. Edwardsville's Tigers dropped into the Redbirds nest October 25, and before the game was many minutes old they proved that the pre-game dope of line and backfield Tiger power had not been overrated. The Tigers lost no time in scoring three touchdowns but in the second half the teams played on equal terms. Final score favored the Tigers 27-6. This season Wood River was more certain than ever that it was their year and when the Redbirds arrived there on November 1, they found over 3,000 spectators on hand, many of whom were from Alton. This game proved to be a battle but once the Redbirds produced a touchdown the Oilers were softened and we were content to defend our 7-0 score. Into Alton rolled the East Side Packers on the evening of November 8, to try their hand at mauling our Redbirds for the tie we held them to in '39, when the two schools shared conference honors. The game was still in its infancy when Packer power packed over a touchdown, then another, and still a third. In the second half the Redbirds again stayed on even terms with theiropponents but the final whistle showed a 25-6 victory for East Side. The final game of the conference season was played at Belleville on November 15. The Maroons had played a rather bad season but had shown power in their last two games preceding the game with the Redbirds. The Altonians were respectors of Maroon power but went to work with vengeance and built up a touchdown lead. Before the smoke of battle had cleared, the Redbirds had scored a total of 20 points to the Maroons 12. Conference play finished with Edwardsville and East St. Louis in a tie for first and second place with the Redbirds taking third place with 5 victories and 2 defeats. Turkey Day brought the Army from Western Military to the Redbirds field in the final game between the two schools. Western's season record was not so good—2 wins, 2 ties, and 3 defeats. They had scored 32 points during the season to their opponents 93 while the Redbirds had scored 72 points to their opponents 64 and had won 5 while losing 2. This far the dope favored the Jacksonmen but McCaskill was definitely out of the Alton lineup due to a leg injury. This was sufficient to give the Army a slight edge since it deprived the Alton backfield of half of their experienced pass tossers, an asset in scoring plays during the season. The game was played under ideal weather conditions and the teams battled on even terms until late in the final quarter. Not many people in the stands expected anything other than a scoreless tie. Then “Scrappy" Carter went into the Alton backfield and on the first play that Redbird flea-flicker lateral struck like double geared lightning and when Western downed Carter who had received the ball from Wood who had received it from someone else the ball was short of Western's goal by only a couple of yards. On the next play Kenny Peters successfully negotiated an end run with proper Redbird blocking and Vambeketes used his educated toe with Wood holding and "Happy Days" were here again for Alton High. Western couldn't recover any drive and the game soon ended to a 7-0 tune. This made ten victories in a row for the Redbirds in 12 starts under Coach Jackson. It made the 14th win for Alton High to 12 for Western with two ties in a series that began in 1904-'07-'08 then each year from 1912 to 1939 with the exception of 1917 and 1918. The only parting glory for Western is that during this time they scored a total of 256 points to 210 for Alton High. This traditional game has been brought to an end by the rule of the State Athletic Association which does not recognize or permit transfer students to participate in sports in the first year in their new school. This rule would block so many Army men that Western felt they could not continue the game. This season ended high school football careers for Vambeketes, Block, Gaines, Beane, Chew, Wood, Peters, Bruce, Luddeke, McCaskill, Naugh-ton and Carter. "All Conference" honors were won by Vambe-ketes and McCaskill. The 1941 season will require many new faces, but with Ash, Pfeffer, the Platter brothers and Buck from the letter men a nucleus for the 41 season is assured. ■ ★ ★ ★ : A = » FIRST SQUAD First row: Homer Campbell, Lucian Patterson, Ed Patterson, Bill Schotters, Jack Naughton, Maurice Pffefer.

Geddes, Coach Basketball opened officially on December 6, when the Redbirds played host to Gillespie, but our boys were too nice about it and Gillespie grabbed the opener 22-13. The Alton cause was not lost as a result of this first game for a new comer to Alton High Bill Schotters fitted well into the Geddes and Jureziz machine. Then the two Patterson boys- uncle and nephew by the way—were on hand together with Campbell, Antone Jureziz, Assistant Coach Naughton, Beane, Pfeffer, Cole, Aulabaugh and Ray Platter. The next week found both games played away from home. The Redbirds traveled to Jerseyville and treated their host just like Gillespie had treated us the week before, only worse, and the final score found A’ton winn'ng 31-7. On Friday night of December 13—yes, Friday the 13th -the boys moved to Granite City. Just a few shortmonths before the Happy Warriors had won the State Championship of Illinois, but the Redbirds could not afford to worry about either Friday the 13th or the opponent. When the final whistle was blown the Happy Warriors were sad warriors for we had won 38-34. The week of December 16 found our boys at home, but a loss and a win were our lot. On Tuesday night, Litchfield dropped into town and showed us the smoothest working offense and the best defense so far in the campaign. When the smoke of battle cleared we were on the short end of a 36-28 score. The week was brought to a whirlwind close, however,when the Redbirds played one of their best games of the entire season in defeating the Oilers from Wood River. The local boys gathered a first quarter lead and held on to it for the entire game. Wood River, seemingly badly beaten as the fourth quarter started, came through in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter and gave us a terrible scare but the boys from our Alma Mater tossed in a final field goal to win 21-19. Christmas vacation found the boys of the hardwood court in the Mt. Vernon tournament but we had too much Christmas spirit of the giving type left over and gave away too big a lead in the first half. We outplayed Johnson City by a wide margin in the second half, yet we were unable to close the gap and lost 34-23. January 7 resumed Conference play and we defeated the Collinsville Kahoks on our floor 36-34 in another game that made our hearts go into high gear. On Friday night of the same week we journeyed to Edwardsville where they turned their Tigers loose upon us and they proceeded to claw us into a 37-27 defeat. The next week saw us meet defeat at Madison in a game that could have gone to either team but near the close of the game the Madison 5 grabbed a four point lead and matched us point for point in addition. They won 28-24. Belleville came here on Friday night in an attempt to win a conference game—something they had not been able to do. They were disappointed, however, when the Redbirds triumphed 32-22. Graduation exercises set the East Side game up to Thursday night and they seemed to enjoy it. Using a shifty and tricky offense they got away to a nice first half lead but the Redbirds came close to upsetting the Packers in the second half. We lost 32-28. On Saturday night our boys were guests of Decatur in their new gym. The game was played before nearly 4,000 Decatur fans. The trip, the new gym, the crowd and the Decatur quintet all conspired to help in a Redbird defeat by a 34-23 count. The next week saw only one game played—we were host to Granite City and this second time we met the State Champs we were not even courteous enough to let them use the ball except in rare instances. The final score— Alton 32 and Granite 14. It was our widest margin in a conference win. The next week we tried our luck in the Oiler's den and at times the Summers coached crew were pushed plenty hard, but winning two basketball games in one season from the Oilers was too big a task and we lost the game 22-17. Our next game was at Collinsville and the Kahoks showed power when they pinned the season's worst defeat on us 44-26. Undismayed our Redbirds bounced back into the win column the next game when they spilled the Tigers 24-17 in a thriller for Alton fans but a heartbreaker for Edwardsville since this defeat cost them the Conference Championship and gave them a tie with Wood River. In the closing games of the season Madison again gave us a 4 point drubbing, this time on our floor 27-23. However, the Redbirds dropped in on Belleville the next night and after a tough battle came out victors when a late Belleville rally fell 4 points short and Alton won 30-27. In the season's final Conference game the Red-birds visited the Packers of East Side and were shooting for a victory. However, our sights didn't work so well and we lost 39-20. Our Conference record for the season was 7 wins and 7 losses. We scored 378 points to opponents 396. This is our best Conference basketball record in several years. In non-conference games during the season exclusive of the tournament at Wood River we scored 118 points to our opponents 133. For the season, including tournament play we scored 529 points to our opponents 565. Alton had hopes of getting by Troy this year in the Wood River tournament and possibly even getting into the final game to be assured a game at least in the next round a week Liter at Collinsville. The officials said we fouled too many times and Troy made 18 charity shots out of 36 attempts, which enabled them to squeeze by in a 36-33 win. Our 1940'41 basketball season thus ended as it began, in defeat—but many prospects come upfrom the second team next fall and hopes are held for still an improved team next year. . The boys who have played their final basketball for Alton High are: Bill Schotters, Ed Patterson, Lucian Patterson, J. Naughton, Craig Beane and Harold Cole. Ed Patterson stood fourth in Conference scoring and Bill Schotters set a mark of 80 per cent in shooting free throws—two swell records. Ed also won an "All Conference" selection landing in a tie with Volz of Edwardsville for third place selection. Campbell and Schotters received honor-able mention. SECOND TEAM SQUAD IN BASKETBALL Antone Jureziz, Coach This last season the Redbird seconds played fifteen games and while they did not win as many games as they lost yet they scored during the season only 4 points less than their opposition. This year Coach Jureziz set out to develop his men on defense just as much as offense in the belief that a well drilled man is needed in defense as well as offense. The first team squad next year is certain to be stronger because of this year's experience given to Beck, Buck, Tickner, Moore, Hallam, Nasello, Carl Platter, Waide, Meisen-heimer, and others. j - ★ ★ 1940-41 Basketball Scores Alton 13.

Track Antone Jureziz, Coach High hopes had been held for a big season in track this year as a follow-up to last year's beginning but it was expecting a little too much to put track over as a winner in the second season of a revived sport. The boys were further handicapped by the junior high building program which pretty nearly did away with our practice field. The squad this year has been made up of nearly twice as many boys who were interested enough in track to come out as were out last year. While not winning any meets at the time our book goes to press the boys have been in a meet somewhere each week since early in April. No meet has been entered in which we failed to score points. Good efforts and reasonably good results have been turned in during the season by many of the squad. May next year be a bigger and better year for track. Tennis The squad had trouble getting any practice but played anyway. Koenig and Flexon lost their doubles match in the Belleville Tournament on May 2. Tuggle and Young the next day each won from their opponent in singles play but lost in their third round of play as they had drawn byes in first round play. The boys with more practice hope to get some wins in the Conference meet and expect to meet Granite, Belleville and Collinsville in inter-school contests.

During this time it has grown and prospered. The original Chapter of twelve members has grown to an organization having a membership of sixty or more and graduating about half of this number each semester. One of the original sponsors. Miss Cates, who helped organize the Chapter in the beginning, is serving alone as sponsor, the other original sponsor. Miss Cartwright, died in 1939. The purpose of this organization is chiefly to recognize scholarship, as football and basketball recognize ability in athletics, and the language clubs recognize ability in their separate languages. In addition to this, the Chapter tries to develop the leadership and character of its members by rendering various services to the school and to the members of the Chapter. Membership is based on the four cardinal virtues of the Chapter, scholarship, leadership, character and service. There are certain points under each of these virtues that must be considered. Under scholarship the candidate must be in the upper third of his class; under leadership come the initiative, executive ability, and influence of the candidate; under character is dependability, industry, honesty, and personality; under service— the service to other organizations, to the school, and to the teachers must be considered. The OFFICERS First Semester James Dickerson.........................President Patty Sheppard.................... Vice-President Betty Ash...............................Secretary faculty advisors prepare a list of those in the upper third of the class who are eligible. This list is then presented to the rest of the faculty who rate the candidates on leadership, character, and service. The high rating candidates are then installed at a public ceremony each semester, but not over 15% of the graduating class may be installed. Meetings are held once a month, the third Monday in the school month. During the meeting, business is transacted and speakers are heard on various subjects. The Chapter holds several social affairs each semester. A banquet for graduating members and a joint party with the Quill and Scroll have regular features. This year the president started a series of Chapter parties and dances. This year there were two main service projects. A poll of the graduating seniors was taken to determine how many were going to college, where they would like to go, what they would like to study, where they would like to live, and if they were not going to college what type of work they would like to take up. The Chapter sent for catalogs from the schools in which the students were interested. The other project is a system of student loan scholarships for Chapter members. In 1936 a fund was started for the student loan scholarships, but this shall be the first year for granting the scholarships. OFFICERS Second Semester Roger Breyfogle.........................

It is an all-school governing body, the members of which are elected each semester from the home rooms, each home ' room being entitled to one representative. The president and vice-president of the organization are elected by the school-at-large and hold office for one year.
