Alton a4icfit School Alton, DUinoUDedication To every graduate, former student, and teacher of Alton High School who is in the service of his and our Country, The 1943 Tatler is dedicated.In M-emoriam Miss Jennie Cates, teaching her twenty-fifth year in Alton High School, was called to the great beyond on March 14, 1943 after an illness lasting nearly three months. Jennie Cates was a friend to her pupils and fellow faculty members. Her life was an example of devotion to duty and service to her friends. Miss Cates served as sponsor of The National Honor Society and The Student Forum with the deepest sincerity of purpose any one could expect. A beautiful example of a Christian life has been brought to an early close, but the many good deeds of Miss Jennie Cates shall live in the hearts of her legion of friends as long as they shall live.The 1943 Tatler Staff 1st row: Jan Sparks, editor-in-chiej; Luther L.

J. Miscgades, J. J. Beeby, R. H. Richards, President, M. W. Acker, Dr. H. E. Middleton, P. L. Ewing, Superintendent, Hugh Horstman, Secretary. PARMER L. EWING Superintendent Mr. Ewing came to Alton as Superintendent of Schools last August after 11 years as Superintendent of Schools at Highland. Mr. Ewing has had a very busy year of school work in addition to conquering a round of ill health. Many faculty changes have been made this year due to death of teachers in the system and changes brought about by the exigencies of a nation at war. Mr. Ewing was able to visit high school often enough that all of us were able to get acquainted with him. In his first year with us Mr. Ewing has shown a deep interest in the welfare of those in school. We arc glad to know that the Board of Education has renewed Mr. Ewing's contract for next school year.C. C. HANNA Principal This school year Mr. Hanna has found many problems to occupy his time. The problems of war have been many— changes in office help, faculty, and student body have been frequent. Each change has required Mr. Hanna to give some time to its solution, and this he has done. No one has heard Mr. Hanna complain, in fact the cooperation of faculty and student body shows appreciation for his work. ft ft ft Our Deans Ralph Kober Assistant Principal Biology Marguerite Huebner Dean of Girls English Macy Pruitt Dean of Boys History All three of the faculty administrative force pictured here are serving their first year in their respective positions. They have been busy yet helpful to all those with whom they have come in contact. Their work has been made more difficult by the fact that they succeeded two experienced and successful workers— Dinsmorc Wood and Miss Carolyn Wempen.

Jackson, Coach ☆ Harold Shapiro, Assistant Couch Football practice pushed up steam in a hurry this fall. Coach Jackson found a new assistant in the person of Harold Shapiro—a graduate of Illinois—who replaced R. P. Geddes. Geddes left Alton High for Western Military on September I. Despite the fact that Metz, Lumpkin and Harrison made up the total of lettermen returning to the squad, Coach Jackson found Hertenstcin, Veit, Roberts, Moore, McCarroll and Aulabaugh—six boys with considerable experience. By the time of our first game at Benld on September 25, eight of these boys were in the starting line-up and Roberts was out of play for the season with a broken arm. The three who had cOtne to the front to win starting positions with the seven above were Chamness, Gould and Beall. The first half looked as if the Redbirds might lose since they trailed 6-0. Late in the third quarter Tom Beall scooped in a pass from Jim Moore and twisted his way 28 yards for a touchdown. In the fourth quarter McCarroll ran a Benld punt from our 25 to their 20 and a few plays later McCarroll scored. Alton 12, Benld 6. October 2, opened conference play at home with the East St. Louis Flyers, who wound up the season again conference winners. The Red-birds held their opponents the first half but gave up a touchdown in the third quarter when East Side connected on a good pass. The final East Side marker in the fourth quarter came after they intercepted an Alron pass. The Redbirds kept East Side worried most of the game and once in the first half lost the ball on East Side’s 3 yard line. Alton 0, East St. Louis 13. October 9 found the Redbirds at Belleville— the team who was looked upon at this time as having first chance at Conference honors. The Maroons crashed through in the first half for 26 points. The half ended just in time to cost the Redbirds a touchdown as they had driven from Belleville’s 47 yard line to their 2 foot line in two plays. This drive gave the Redbirds confidence and in the second half McCarroll and Beall each completed a touchdown drive but Belleville also scored twice to leave the final count Alton 12, Belleville 39- October 16 found Collinsville's Kahoks in Alton and intent on giving the Redbirds another conference loss. The local squad felt otherwise about it and went to work early in the game after Collinsville drove to the Red-bird 25- Scoring started in the second quarter after Lumpkin and Aulabaugh recovered an Alton punt when the Kahoks fumbled on their 15- A pass from Moore to Beall, in the end zone, was good. Collinsville threatened several times with a passing attack and it looked to be headed for a touchdown late in the second quarter. Harvey Veit spoiled the Kahok fun when he grabbed a Collinsville pass and ran 92 yards to score. In the third quarter Tom Beall got a spot of grand assistance from the line and reeled off a 72 yard touchdown run. Alton 19, Collinsville 0. October 22 found the Redbirds at Granite City. The game started with a Redbird rush and before Granite's Warriors suspected what was up a long pass from McCarroll to Harrison was good for a touchdown and extra point was place-kicked by McCarroll. At this point the sad Warriors took over and they had made themselves Happy Warriors by the end of the half when they led 19-7 although Alton was in possession of the ball on Granite’s 6 yard line as the half ended. Play was about even in the second half but Granite got away with one end run touchdown play to give a final score of Alton 7, Granite City 25- October 30 found Madison’s Trojans on the local field and although Coach Jackson used 36 players the Redbirds scored six touchdowns and extra point on five of them. Touchdowns scored by Beall, Moore, Aulabaugh, Robinson, Goss, and Jansen. The final score read Alton 41, Madison 7. November 6 found Edwardsvillc's Tigers in Alton and fully determined to win. However, good defensive play by the Redbirds including grand punting by Harrison stopped the Tigers until late in the fourth quarter. In the meantime Beall and Jansen had scored for Alton. The final read Alton 12, Edwardsville 6. November 13 found the Redbirds in the Oilers’ den. Season records forecast an even chance for Wood River. Before the first quarterended Smith had connected with Aulabaugh for a touchdown pass. The backficld had used ground football from the Alton 4 to the the Wood River 42 when all of a sudden the touchdown pass whizzed by the Oilers. No further scoring occurred until early in the fourth quarter when Jansen sneaked through for a touchdown. Only a few minutes later Eldon Smith scored for Alton. Now the Oilers put over their lone touchdown, but enough time remained in the game for Alton to carry the ball to the Oilers ten and here again the Smith to Aulabaugh pass combination clicked. The score: Alton 24, Wood River 7. Thanksgiving Day renewed the contest between Western Military and the Redbirds. Alton had enjoyed a better season than Western but it looked like a good game was in store for the fans. When the first half ended 0-0 it appeared that this might be the final score. The Redbird players felt otherwise and late in the third quarter McCarroll spun around on the 70 yard line until he had Western groggy. Then Bob started south and ended his run in Western's end zone with Alton's first six points. All this set-up was made possible after Harrison intercepted a Western pass. Following the touchdown, Western drove to Alton's 1 foot line. Trying a line buck on fourth down, Western found Beall and Harrison had stopped them 2 feet farther away on the 1 yard line. In a brief period of time the crowd was surprised to sec McCarroll score again. Western fumbled on their 33 on the first play following out punt. In three line plays, McCarroll Jansen—McCarroll and Bob scored touchdown number 3 for his credit and Alton's glory. Western received the Alton punt and returned to their 28. Hcte they elected to pass but Hcchler intercepted. Five plays and McCarroll scored his and Alton's fourth touchdown. Western was having a hard time getting beyond their 40 yard line. A punt of Western was blocked and Harrison scooped it up. He reached pay dirt ahead of Western for their fight was gone. Now the army had been licked 12 times straight by Alton High. Final score: Alton 33, Western 0.

The Redbirds journeyed to Jerseyvillc for the first game of the season. It was a 44-31 win for Alton and an early season optimism for basketball sprang up. This hope began to fade when Gillespie opened the Redbird home basketball season by pulling away to a safe lead in the fourth quarter and we lost 39-28. This was the first in a series of seven losses before the Redbirds crashed through for a win. Following the loss to Gillespie the Belleville quintet furnished the next opposition and after a close first half score the Maroons pulled away for a 41-28 win. East St. Louis closed the basketball plav before Christmas by defeating the Redbirds 40-26 in a game that lost its closeness in the final quarter. The Redbirds opened conference play after the holidays at Granite City and held a 9 point margin at the start of the final quarter. The score stood 28-28 at the end of 32 minutes of play and Granite outscored us 7 to 3 in the overtime play and won 35-31- Wood River was next on the schedule and although played at Alton the Redbirds lost 37-25- Collinsville proved to be too strong for Alton and defeated us 38-22. At Edwardsville our boys scored enough to win an average ball game but the Tigers clawed away to a 54-41 win over the Redbirds. Madison was our victim at home in our next game and every Redbird combination scored and the final score gave Alton a 59-22 win. The long looked for trip to Decatur was next in line for the Redbirds. Decatur was rated among the first ten teams in the State and it appeared as if a Redbird slaughter was at hand. However, the Alton boys played one of the best games of the season and Decatur was glad to get off with a 32-29 win in a game which was either ream's meat until the last 20 seconds of the game. However, it started the Redbirds on an eight game losing streak and Belleville put on the second stinger of this series of losses by a 44-21 count. Another nonconference game rolled along when Greenville kept to her winning ways and defeated us 48-28. In our return game with East St. Louis they never gave us a chance and led by a comfortable margin all the way. Final count gave us 35 to East Side's 60. In our return game with Wood River the Redbirds gave the Oilers a fast game and were on the Oilers heels for the first half—but Wood River couldn’t be stopped in the second half and won 54-38. Granite City dropped into the Redbird den and were supposed to have an easy time of it. However, the Redbirds went to work and led until the final minute of regulation time when Granite tied the score. We missed a foul shot after the gong which let Granite into an overtime game where they won by scoring 6 points in the overtime to Alton's 0. The return game with Collinsville, who now led and eventually won the conference crown, was too much for Alton and we lost 52-22. Edwardsville Tigers came to Alton intent on winning a game on our floor—something they had not been able to do in more than ten years. They "done it" this time 53-34. The final game of the regular season was played at Madison and for 3 quarters Madison led. Late in the fourth quarter the Redbirds gained a one point advantage which thev held and won 40-39. Redbird chances in conference play were choked off when we drew the Oilers. The Redbirds led scoring for the first 12 minutes of play but then the Oilers took over command and won 58-25. This loss is somewhat reduced in sting by the fact that the Oilers went into the second round of play in the State finals. ft ft SEASON SCORES Alton 44.....................Jerseyvillc 31 Alton 28.....................Gillespie 39 Alton 28.....................Belleville 41 Alton 26.....................East St. Louis 40 Alton 31.....................Granite City 35 Alton 25.....................Wood River 37 Alton 22.....................Collinsville 38 Alton 41.....................Edwardsville 54 Alton 29.....................Madison 22 Alton 59.....................Decatur 32 Alton 21.....................Belleville 44 Alton 28.....................Greenville 48 Alton 35.....................East St. Louis 60 Alton 38.....................Wood River 54 Alton 30.....................Granite City 36 Alton 22.....................Collinsville 52 Alton 34.....................Edwardsville 53 Alton 40.....................Madison 39 Alton 25.....................

It was organized in 1942, and is now sponsored by Mr. Santoro. Even though it is a comparatively new organization, the Spanish Club has proved to be a very active one. It has carried on many activities in the past year, some of which were dances, a bowling party, and a gala premiere of an all-Spanish moving picture. Among speakers to address the Club were Dr. Young of Monticello and Captain Gage of Western Military Academy. The purpose of the club is to further the aim of the Good Neighbor Policy; to arouse interest in our South American neighbor activities; to aid, by extra-curricular activities, the teaching of Spanish in the classroom; and to bring about greater friendship among the students of Spanish. • FRENCH CLUB 1st rou - Jo Roberts, Patty Sober, Jean Loellkc, Marilyn Sheppard, Mary Ann McCaskill, Pat Vine, Thelma Wilken, Jean Howard, Elizabeth Smith, Virginia Huston. 2nd row: Georgia Bonne! 1, Jan Snarks, Dixie Lee Vann, Flora Wimmcr, Marie Mayhall, Mary Watson, Lila Peterson, Joyce Wilton, Nancy Acker, Imogcnc Bclangcc, Eileen Yacgcr, Virginia Moody. 3rdrow: Donald Humphrey, Betty Ready, Dolly Gaines, Dorothy Fay, Mildred Docrr, Sandra Downey, Betty Beck, Kay Clifton, Irene Davis, Miriam Meyer, Freda Spence, Mable Brown, Marion Tuck, Elvcrn McElrath, Betty Landis, Marcella Butler. 4th row: Wallv Oiler, Gerald Meyers, Dick Russell, Bob Fox, Tom Beall.

Miss Gates and Miss Voss, were chosen by the organization. The four cardinal virtues on which the organization is founded and membership is based arc scholarship, leadership, character, and service. To fulfill the scholarship requirement, a prospective member must rank in the upper one-third of the 4-1 class. There is a list made of these students who arc then rated by the faculty on the other three virtues. Under leadership is considered the initiative, the executive ability, and the influence of the candidate; under character are the dependability, industry, honesty, and personality; under service, the service to other organizations, to the school, and to the teachers is considered. The students receiving the highest number of points are then installed as members at a public ceremony. However, not more than fifteen per cent of the class may be inducted. The main project of the National Honor Society this year was the sponsoring of rhe Penny Campaign. Over fifty dollars was collected and was used in purchasing books for service men. These books were then sent to Adak Island, Alaska, where one of our alumni, Enos Campbell, is stationed. During the first semester, a list of the former Alton High students now in the armed forces was compiled, in preparation for making up an Honor Roll similar to the one compiled after World War I.

Library Assistants The Tatlcr is glad of the opportunity to pay tribute to this group for their assistance to the school and to Miss Voss in conducting the library. Since our enrollment is large and we must use the library as a study hall, and in view of the many calls for books and magazines. it has become impossible for Miss Voss to do the work of a librarian. This group of girls has made possible the use of our library as a combined study hall and library as well as permitting Miss Voss to keep up the library records. » ft Rifle Club The Piasa Junior Rifle Club Association assumes responsibility for furnishing a firing range, ammunition, and technical instruction for the members of Alton High's rifle team. This season, and for the "duration," all matches arc by mail. Each team fires its round on the home range and targets are mailed to the officers of the St. Louis Metropolitan Rifle Club in St. Louis. Scores of all teams arc totaled and re- turned in bulletins issued weekly. There arc usually ten teams in the league but only eight this season. Alton High finished in fifth place. The best Alton score was 713 out of a possible 800. The best league score was turned in by C.B.C. with 738. Captain of the Alton team for the year was Eugene Koehne and Mr. Myers served as faculty coach.

We found Messrs., Santoro and Grammaticoff ready to teach us our Spanish day by day. The Social Science field gave us Mr. Wollerman and Miss Ahc. Miss Brcnnccke and Mr. Campbell were on hand to teach us the new X2—Y=4 or Math. Miss Tibbctts-and Miss Gullcr were on hand to bolster the commercial department. Miss Tucker was the new biology teacher and the tenth new faculty member was Mr. Shapiro. Shapiro had classes in gym and assisted in coaching football and coached basketball. We soon noted many absentees among the faculty and inquiry disclosed the following bits of information. Mr. Wood was principal at Edwardsvillc and Miss Wcmpcn was taking care of a sister in California who was very ill. Messrs. Ihnc and Walraven were over on the hill at East Junior High with Mr. Ihne as principal. Mr. Vasey was in the army in Colorado and Mr. Thompson was working at Western Cartridge Co. Mr. Gcddes was with the future army at Western Military Academy. Mr. Rich was now teaching shorthand and typing in a Naval Training School in Indian- apolis, Indiana. Miss Lodge was teaching her Spanish at Northwestern University. As the school year progressed death claimed Miss Jennie Cates. The army called Mr. Bruno in April while Miss Sheppard left us in March and became the bride of a former teacher when she married Lt. W. L. Bailey, April 4. Mr. Deason secured a position in Southwest High in Detroit and Mr. Shapiro became athletic director of the Y.M.H.A. in St. Louis. At the end of the first semester Mr. Grammaticoff returned to Normandy, St. Louis County, Missouri, to teach Spanish in his home high school—only two blocks from home. Mr. Ingles came to us from Mulberry Grove in Bond County to the place left vacant by the death of Miss Cates. He moved on to the gym and coaching work vacated by Mr. Shapiro. Mr. Vasey returned and took over the history classes vacated by Mr. Ingles. Mrs. Klaas took over Mr. Deason's classes in general science; Mrs. Brazel completed Mr. Bruno's work; Mrs. Guy Wiminer finished the year for Miss Sheppard; Mrs. Rodgers took a part of the Spanish classes left by Mr. Grammaticoff (and Miss Blackard the others).

If Colonius will permit? I, Mary Watson, will to Bernice Martin all the trials and tribulations of being an overworked, tormented senior girl suffering from the draft and everything that goes with it. I, Vera Watson, will all my falls up and down the steps and in the halls of Alton High to some unlucky freshman. I, Marilyn Weber, will my ability to wait to Peggy Green. I, Dale Werts, do will my good times at Rock Poole’s to Bill Flippo. I, Jcane Whitaker, will my ability to get my man to Eleanor Schlobohm and hope she can do more with it than I was able to. I, Isabelle White, will to Annie Freeman's boyfriend the ability to answer all her foolish questions. I, John White, will my ability to get out of class first and into the cafeteria line last to Bing Scott. I, Marcella Wickcnhauser, will Mr. Freeman and "Pop” Myers to no one, not even their wives. I, Eugene Wieland, will my place on the second basketball team to Joe Smith. I, Shirley Wightman, will my ability for writing to soldiers, sailors, and marines to any girl who wants to keep up the morale. I, Marion Willis, will all the shoe leather I have wasted walking the halls before school to Henry Tackwell and Donjansen, Inc. I also will my place in Red Gray Hi-Y to any student who wants the best of everything. I, Delphene Wilson, will my excess weight to "mother Walldrip." I, Kass Wilson, leave to my DEAR brother Stu, the Wilson’s name; providing he doesn’t disgrace it anymore than necessary to have fun. I, Joyce Wilton, will my stupendous height of 5 feet to Ed Young-—for obvious reasons. I, William Winkler, will my long hair and ability to get into trouble at school to anybody. I, Norma Gene Winterrowd, will my place in sewing class to anyone who will accept it. I, Lowell "Daddy" Wonnacott, do will my power over the Alton Hi School "Profs” to my little six-foot brother as I don’t think it will do me much good where I’m going. I, Clarence O. WoofT, will all my best sleeping chairs in Alton Hi to Ray Robinson. I, Naeoma Wooldridge, will my sleepy days in study hall to Dotty Gilmore, or to anyone who needs the sleep.
