O’er the Land of the Free” To every graduate and former student of Alton Senior High School now, or to be, in the Service of his Country, this volume of The Tatler is most patriotically and respectfully dedicated.Rex Hogan F. H. Harlan To these faculty members already in the Service of their Country, and to any others to be called, this volume of The Tatler carries an added dedication.RICHARD LITTLE June 18, 1924 — November 11, 1941 RICHARD WALLACE June 29, 1926 — November 11, 1941 ROBERT JARRETT March 12, 1927 — April 19, 1942 In Memoriam The student body received a severe shock the week-end of November 11, 1941, when two of our student body were called to the life beyond. Richard Little was ill for only a few days and showed evidence of rapid recovery when a sudden attack of pneumonia proved fatal. Richard Wallace was the victim of an accidental discharge of a rifle. Both boys had an excellent record in school and their friendly manners had won many friends. The last of April the school was again shocked by the death of Robert Jarrett, a victim of typhoid fever. Bob was a member of the Freshman class. May all of us who are left here strive to attain every worthwhile accomplishment as these boys had done so well.CONTENTS FACULTY CLASSES ATHLETICS ORGANIZATIONS FEATURES and ADVERTISINGVV. R. CURTIS Superintendent The present school year marks the "majority" for Mr. Curtis. Every youth looks forward to his attaining his majority. Mr. Curtis has not had the time to think about his twenty-first year as superintendent of Alton Public Schools. Why? Cooperation with Uncle Sam in operating the Defense School, Defense classes in the high school, cooperation of the school system and our local Draft Board, construction work on the new junior high, sugar rationing, selective service registrations, and a constantly shifting teaching corps due to "calls to service of their Country"—marriages— positions in industry, etc., all have been added to a superintendent’s regular duties. Since the above was written, Mr. Curtis has resigned as Superintendent after a total of 47 years in school work, 21 of which have been spent in Alton. The Tatler Staff and student body extend every good wish to Mr. Curtis. FRANCOIS S. CILLIE Mr. Cillic was named assistant superintendent of our public schools the middle of April. He was able to give only part time to this work until the close of school at Monticcllo College where Mr. Cillie served as Dean of the Faculty and Director of Studies with much success. BOARD OF EDUCATION L. J. Misegades J. J. Beeby R. H. Richards Dr. Groves Smith, President W. R. Curtis Dr. H. E. Middleton M. W. Acker Hugh Horstman, SecretaryC. C. HANNA Principal Bad luck which first caught up last school year persisted in sticking on Mr. Hanna’s trail. This year Mr. Hanna was experiencing a busy year in school work as many of the extra duties of an administrator in war times fall to a high school principal. These responsibilities were cheerfully accepted by our principal and cooperation between school and community was excellent. In the middle of it all a fall on the ice produced a broken leg which has slowed up but could not stop Mr. Hanna in his work. ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ Our Deans DINSMORE V(X)D Dean of Boys—Civics Assistant Principal CAROLYN WEMPEN Dean of Girls Mathematics The social unrest that accompanies a country at war has its effect upon the work of deans of boys and girls in high schools. Our school has been no exception and while the problems have not been serious disciplinary ones, yet the deans have been kept busy. Both the Boys' Cabinet and Girls' Council have been kept busy. Especially has Mr. Wood frequently faced the problem "should I enlist now or finish high school?" Both deans have frequently faced the problems . . of students who want to quit school to go to "’ork, and occasionally the student who feels the absolute need of going to work. Both of our deans have seen a busy school year.Vernon O. Hainline Woodwork Bon O. Brown Commercial Nancy Lowry English Mildred Rutledge English Jennie Cates U. S. History L. M.

Jackson, Coach Football practice got under way by Wednesday of the first week of school. Coach Jackson found only 5 lettermen of '40 on hand and of these Ash had had the most experience in the previous season. Lettermen also on hand besides Ash were Carl and Ray Platter, Jim Buck, and Maurice Pfcffcr—Pfcffer had seen nearly a complete season of service in '40. This left Coach Jackson and his assistant—Gcddcs—with two seasoned linemen, Ash and Pfcffcr, and three more with considerable experience—Cole, Buck, and Carl Platter. In the backfield the only letterman from '40 was Ray Platter, and one man with considerable experience—Jim Coleman. It was really a big task ahead for the coaches to have a team ready for the first game of the season with Benld here on Friday evening, September 26. When Benld's miners rolled into town for the opening game of the season, all dope-favored the visitors who were equipped with a squad of seasoned veterans. The first quarter was a "feeler" by both squads, but in the second quarter, Benld's Robertson and Lloyd unleashed an attack that carried to Alton's 9 yard line. Here Lumpkin planted his 190 pounds squarely in front of Robertson and the visitors first half threat was ended. In the second half the visitors made two desperate but unsuccessful bids for scores. In the third quarter with the ball on Alton's 11 yard stripe, Robertson attempted to pass, but was downed on the 18 by Lumpkin who had broken through Benld's line. In the fourth quarter a pass from Robertson to Lloyd in midfield looked like a touchdown but little Jim Coleman caught Lloyd on the Alton 29 yard line. It was now Alton's turn and they turned on the heat, but lost the ball to Benld on the visitors 2 yard line. Hamelmann, Ash, Waide and Lumpkin gave Alton some swell first game defense work and Buck's punting was above average for a high school game. Burmester in his first game played well. Score 0-0. Belleville's Maroons opened Conference play for both teams on our field October 3. During most of the game Belleville seemed to possess a more driving offense but the Rcdbird defense stopped the Maroon scoring plays except in Robert P. Geodes, Assistant Coach one quarter—the fourth. Late in the third quarter Belleville downed one of their punts on the Alton 5 yard line. Buck punted to the 35 but McKclvey for the Maroons returned it to the 11. Here the Redbirds held for 3 downs but a Belleville pass on fourth down was ruled complete on the Alton 2 foot line. Alton drew an off-side penalty on the next play and the ball rested on the 1 foot line and after another play it was still short of a touchdown. The first play of the fourth quarter produced Belleville's only touchdown but it was one-better than Alton and the final score read Maroons 6—Alton 0. October 10 found the Redbirds in the den of Collinsville Kahoks, who had shown early season signs of being tough. The only score of the game fell to Collinsville's honor early in the first quarter. A Kahok punt took a crazy hop and touched an Alton player but Collinsville took advantage of the break and fell on the ball on Alton's 22 yard line. A mixture of line plays and passes gave the Kahoks a touchdown in four plays from the 22. Throughout the rest of the game Alton's defense clicked but on offense the Birds were stopped on Collinsville's 15 in the fourth quarter by a pass interception after Ash had blocked a Kahok punt. Final score—Collinsville 6-Alton 0. The 17th day of October arrived and as the dav wore on the rain grew worse. Result— postponed game to Thanksgiving Day. Coach Jackson reported that this was the first football game in which he had ever taken part, as a player or coach, to be postponed due to weather. The game for October 24 with Madison was not played because of Madison's cancellation. No definite reason for failing to play the game has ever been given by Madison. The Redbirds finally got back into action on October 31 at Edwardsvillc where the Tigers had come up with a good team but had lost some close games previous to our invasion. The long period without competition might be offered as a reasonable excuse for Alton's failure to muster a continued strong offensive. Alton plaved a game somewhat above Edwards-ville in the first half and late in the second quarter, Moore tossed some fine passes that had1941 Football Squads SECOND FOOTBALL—Top 1st row: Oden, Pars, Veit. 2nd row: W.

Football Season of 1941 the Redbirds only 14 yards from "pay dirt" but a pass on fourth down was incomplete and Edwardsvillc was saved. The second half saw nothing that looked like a score until the middle of the fourth quarter when the Tigers returned a punt to the Alton 40. From here on, two completed passes separated by a successful line play put the Tigers over for the only touchdown of the game. They failed to add point and again the Redbirds had a to accept a 6-0 defeat. Oiler football stock at Wood River was up a good many points as November 7 neared and the traditional athletic rivalry between the schools again became tense. Wood River really worked hard in preparation for this game since it looked as if this should be their year to win. The game was moved up a day so that the faculties of both schools could attend the High School Teachers Conference at Illinois U. on the 7th. The weatherman tried to rain this game out, too, and for a time it appeared as if he might succeed. However, rain had ceased to fall before game time but the soggy field added favors to Wood River and most of the 1500 fans felt another Alton loss was in store. The first quarter was fairly even football but in the second quarter, passes by Ufert to Lawton and Eller with some stellar line plunging by Ufert put over an Oiler touchdown. Then Pelligrino place kicked to give the Oilers a 7-0 lead which they held for the rest of the second quarter and most of the third quarter. Wood River contributed to Alton's score when they fumbled on the Alton 35 and Carl Platter grabbed the ball. An off-side on the Oilers plus 6 yards by Burmester had the ball on the Oiler 24 yard line. Coleman picked up 3 yards and fumbled when hit hard, but the ball rolled goalward and again Carl Platter played keeps with the ball this time on the Oiler 13. The next play opened a hole in the Oiler line and Coleman went all the way for a touchdown. Seconds later Coleman had again dashed through the Oilers on an off-tackle play to tie the score. The fourth quarter could have been called off since neither team scored and the final score read Alton 7, Wood River 7. A week later the Redbirds faced the East St. Louis Packers at Parson's field. The Packers were sporting an undefeated and untied record and were out to erase some tie scores Alton had put on them in years not long past. Also the Packers and Maroons were tied for conference honors with 5 wins each and an East Side victory meant the worst that could befall them was a tie with Belleville for conference honors. Abromovich had too much help and East Side scored touchdowns in the first, second, and fourth quarters. Alton scored her one touchdown in the fourth quarter by cooperating linemen who are supposed to set up—not carry out scoring plays. However, Jim Buck blocked an East Side punt in mid-field and Maurice Pfcffer scooped it up for a 46 yard touchdown sprint. The game ended Alton 6, East St. Louis 20. Granite City, with a record for the season about like that of the Redbirds, arrived for a Thanksgiving Day game. Records gave each team about an even chance. In the game itself the Redbirds outplayed Granite's Happy Warriors—the visitors scoring only one first down in the entire game and never getting closer than the Redbird's 22 yard stripe. Alton drove to the Granite 14 yard line in the first quarter and the 7 yard line in the second quarter, but failed to score and many felt a scoreless tie might result. However, early in the fourth quarter. Granite fumbled a punt and Ash gained possession of the ball for Alton on Granite's 21 yard line. From this point Burmester plus Ray Platter plus a penalty on the Happy Warriors and two more line plays by Burmester produced the touchdown of the game. Point after touchdown was netted by Coleman in an off-tackle line play. Final score was Alton 7, Granite City 0. The season showed a record of 1 win—4 losses —2 ties which totals the most disasterous season Alton High has had in eleven years. However, opponents for the season scored an average of only one touchdown a game which tells the fact that the Redbirds were plenty tough on defense. The 1942 season will see Lumpkin, Harrison and Metz as the only letter men back. Four others with considerable playing experience will be on hand—Hertenstcin, Veit, Roberts and Moore. Bill Richey, who came to us from Murphysboro, will be eligible. There will be many others on hand to complete the squad.

' Ba ketball 1941-42 Season Robert P. Geddes, Coach Antone Jureziz, Assistant Coach The 1941-'42 basketball season opened at hoirte on December 4 when Jerseyvilie dropped in for a game. The Rcdbirds had been through a couple of weeks practice and with Campbell, Beck, the Platter brothers Ray and Carl, Pfeffer, Meisenheimer, Moore, Cole, Naughton, Buck and Hallam to furnish the starting five and six sturdy reserves—promise of an unusually good basketball season was at hand. And now back to the Jersey vi lie game. Coach Geddes did not get to give all of his players as much of a tryout as he would have liked to do as Jerseyville kept within striking distance -yet Alton led all the way and the final score was Alton 29, Jerseyville 23. The second game of the season, found the Rcdbirds traveling to Gillespie and in a battle all the way that saw the lead change hands in each half finally ended with an Alton victory 28-25 and a good start for the year. Conference play for the Redbirds opened at East St. Louis on December 11 and the Packers packed too much of a wallop—so the only thing Alton could do was absorb their first defeat of the season. Final tally gave EastsiJe 35 and Alton 23. Sandwiched between the East-side and Granite City conference games came a non-conference battle with Litchfield on their court. It was an off night for Alton and Litchfield really went to town. When the battle-ended and the scorers completed their count it read—Litchfield 40 and Alton 14. The season record of victories was equalled in losses at 2. Redbird stock took a sudden rise, however, when the boys stole the show from Granite City, there, on the 19th and put on a second half rally that put the game on ice and the final score read Alton 52—Granite City 29. This game ended active competition for the Redbirds until January 6, 1942. The long break in games came about in this manner. Collinsville was to have held an invitational tournament during the closing days of December and Alton elected to go to Collinsville instead of Mount Vernon. After the Rcdbirds had withdrawn from the Mt. Vernon tournament (where they had played for five years and were tournament winners in '36) they received notice that the Collinsville tournament was off. The only thing left for the Redbirds to do was to put in plenty of practice during the December 19—-January 6 interval. January 6 brought a renewal of basketball activities after the holidays. Southwest High of St. Louis furnished the opposition and the Redbirds proceeded to their highest scoring of the season, winning by a 42-29 score. Three days later the Geddesmcn journeyed to Wood River with hope of upsetting a powerful Oiler machine. Alton played a hard game both on defense and offense and if we could have hit from the field with greater accuracy a different story could be told. When the smoke of battle cleared it showed Oilers 36—Alton 24. The next night January lO brought the EdwardsvillcTigers to the Redbirds lloor. The game started with a bang and before Coach Geddes could believe it the Tigers were sporting an 11-1 lead. At this point the starting line-up took a rest and Buck, Mciscnhcimer, Cole, Carl Platter and Naughton were rushed into the battle. For a minute Edwardsvilic continued their splurge and ran up a 16-3 count before Meisenheimer began his long ‘‘shot" feed-in that was good for 5 field goals and his mates garnered enough points to leave the Redbirds only 2 points behind at the half. Meisenheimer was too fast and the ■‘ref" said four personals all too soon and Jack got his shower before the half ended. His fire had taken hold of the squad and as the boys were shifted some in the second half they soon took a lead and held it for the game— final score was Alton 33—Tigers 30. The next week our boys journeyed to Collinsville and the Kahoks showed us how the game was played. Wc had to be content with a ■ 3-31 loss. Madison dropped into Alton on January 20 and the fans were treated to a thriller. When the final whistle blew the count read 35-34 Alton. The first semester conference play ended at Belleville on January 23 and they practically annihilated us in the hottest scoring exhibition they had put on all year. The final count showed 53 Maroon markers and 32 for Alton. Decatur dropped into Alton the next evening and in a grand game, Alton was forced to bow to a team with a superior reserve strength. The game was fast and exceptionally close until the last two minutes of the game when the visitors pulled ahead and we lost 52-40. The second semester shows only ten games to twelve in the first semester. Second semester conference play found East St. Louis here on January 30 and their jinx held good. We lost 31-21. The only non-conference basketball game outside of tournament play was a game on our floor with Greenville. They did some fancy shooting and gave us a defeat by a 47-36 score. Our next game was at Granite and those Warriors were really happy while we got the short end of a 37-20 score. The Oilers came to town with several hundred fans and even if it were February 13, they showed us no mercy and we were weak on offense. Final score— Oilers 34, Alton 16. In our game at Edwardsvilic the boys really tried, but the Tigers were out for revenge and they got it with a 35-2 count. The Redbirds journeyed to Mad ison for a return game and to prove to Madison fans that our 1 point victory at home was no fluke the boys plastered Madison again. This was another 1 point victory of the thriller type. A few days later Collinsville came to Alton for a game. The Kahoks led nearly all the way but Alton gradually narrowed the gap. With about 12 seconds ieft to play and the Redbirds 1 point behind the unbelievable happened. Alton got possession of the ball—Aulabaugh shot a long one that was perfect and 'twas our game 32-31. Here would have been a good place to end the season but Belleville had to spoil things for us in our last conference game of the season by a 35-21 score. Tournament time found us paired with the Army from Western Military. Season records left the teams about even and when the game got under headway Western took an early lead and held a 4 point advantage at the half. Alton located the basket in the second half and easily disposed of the opponent in a 36-25 final. The next big question "Could we beat Granite?" The answer was "Yes, we could." But wc didn't. Outscoring the Happy Warriors 2 baskets from the field our foul shooting lagged and wc got the short end of a 32-29 score. With this game basketball closed for the season. The second semester found Ray Platter off the squad due to graduation. Gale Aulabaugh was back and gave a good account of himself. A newcomer was Bill Richey from Murphysboro who made the sauad anil saw considerable service. Injury and illness took Jimmy Moore from the squad in the middle of the second semester play. Next season's team will most likely be built around Moore, Beck, Hallam, Richey and Aulabaugh with this year's second team coming to our rescue. ☆☆☆ SEASON SCORES Alton .29 — Jerseyville...............23 Alton .28 — Gillespie.................25 Alton .35 — East St. Louis............23 Alton .14 — Litchfield................40 Alton .32 — Granite City..............29 Alton 42 — Southwest (St. Louis)....29 Alton .24 — Wood River................36 Alton .33 — Edwardsvilic..............30 Alton 31 — Collinsville..............43 Alton 35 — Madison...................34 Alton 32 — Belleville................53 Alton .40 — Decatur...................52 Alton .21 — East St. Louis............31 Alton .36 — Greenville................47 Alton .20 — Granite City..............37 Alton .16 — Wood River................34 Alton .28 — Edwardsville..............35 Alton..32 — Collinsville..............31 Alton. 33 — Madison...................32 Alton .25 — Belleville................31 Alton 36 — Western Military Academy.25 Alton .29 — Granite City..............32 651 Total Points 752 Won 10 Lost 12SECOND BASKETBALL SQUAD 1st row: Keener, Weiland, Watkins, Kennedy, Harrison, Oden, Veit. but row: Graul, Hechler, Tackwell, Allen, McCarroll.

V V V Track Antone Jureziz, Coach The lack of good practice grounds for track has not defeated the spirit of the boys nor their coach and this season the boys have refused to be the conference doormat in their various meets. At the time this article goes to press the boys have not won any meets but instead of trailing the field with one or two points they have frequently run up 45 to 60 points and placed second or third in quadrangular meets. Much of the scoring has been done by the juniors in the various events and especially in relay races where the best work has been done. A part of the good results in track this year may be due to a growing interest in track as evidenced by a larger squad and the result of previous seasons efforts. The Red-birds have already or will participate in 10 meets this spring which comprises the heaviest track schedule in many years. We are counting on a grand season in '43. The juniors showing most promise for next year are: Harvey Veit, Thomas Beall, Fred Fay, Don Jansen, Durward Worley, Rodger Miller, Glen Allen, Norman Showers, Fred Tickner, and A1 White. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆Amm Mmm ORGANIZATIONS[GIRLS' AUXILIARY COUNCIL 1st row: Olga Netzhammcr, Antigone Kodros, Agnes Sharkey, Dolores Humphrey, June Humrichousc, Martha Middleton, Georgia Bonnell. 2nd row: Elizabeth Smith, Joan Emons, Alice Misegades, Paige Schreiber, Virginia Luft, Cecelia Wood, Nell Shine, Moreland Voss.

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 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 are dependability, industry, honesty, and person- OFFICERS First Semester President.........................Jim Coleman Vice-President..................Moreland Voss Secretary.......................Agnes Sharkey ality; under service—the service to other organizations, to the school, and to the teachers must be considered. The 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 ceremony each semester, but not over fifteen per cent of the graduating class may be installed. Meetings arc 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 been regular features. This year the student loan scholarships, as started in 1936, were continued along with two new projects. One was the compiling of a list of graduates and non-graduates of Alton Senior High School who have joined the armed forces of the United States. The other project was a plan suggested by Mr. Hanna that a list be kept of those graduating out of the Honor Society and then having them write in, in later years, to tell their progress.
