The sweeping and scrubbing of flcors, dusting, wash room maintenance, floor polishing, cafeteria, gymnasium, and shop care are only a part of the harried duties of the staff. The members of the staff are busy all day, until noon on Satur- days, and during the three sum- mer months. As a result of their efforts the school is usu- ally spic and span and ready for Hcompanyf' x. Ww- its ? Sw e 1' 95521 I

Cffice Staff Perhaps no office force has more varied duties than one which has charge of a high school office. Here a continuous parade Of students, teachers, and visitors are before the counter to receive attention of some kind while the workers themselves, at the same time, are attempting to carry out duties to which they have been as- signed. Under the leadership of Mrs. Taylor, in spite of frequent changes in office personnel, the high school office is operated efficiently and pleasantly. MRS. DORIS TAYLOR, Registrar, Qseatedl is ex- plaining some points of procedure to the office assistants MRS. DOLORES R005 and MRS. LORETTA EDWARDS. Cafeteria Staff Seated: BEULAH STRADER, JOSEPH- INE BROOKS, ELIZABETH PENROSE, AMY IEWELL, ANNA KUHN, OTILDA PuR- CELL. Standing: ANN MOUNDS, BERTHA CARTWRIGHT, DOROTHY COX, HILDA RICHARDS, CLARA LEWIS, EDNA Huon- SON, ANNA EWING, LIDA WHITTLE- MAN. Without any doubt the busiest place at Alton High between' the serving hours Of eleven to two o'clOck is the high school cafeteria. Serving students from both the junior and senior high schools makes this department big business. Therefore, for the efficient operation of the cafeteria a large staff of competent women employees is necessary. .aw 5

JM' IANUARY CLASS OFFIICERS CARL IONES, President: AUDREY PARIS, Vice-President: TOIVI STROMSKE, Secretaryffreasurer january Graduates LIFE'S SCHOOL Once, upon an evening dreary: I was wrestling, wrestling, and weary With some geometric problems I had never seen before: Problems that all toil resisted, Though I gropingly insisted, And all mental powers enlisted, As I never had of yore: But the problems, all unravelled, Lay there calmly, as before - - Only this, and nothing more! Quite distinctly I remember: It was in the bleak December, And I was a humble member Of the Senior Class of yore: Eagerly I wished the morrow When I hoped that I might borrow Demonstrations from a classmate When in swampy paths before: "Yes", l whispered, "just once morel' As I sat, some rule repeating, All my brain in madness beating, While my heart and throat were meet- inq, And my wan eyes scanned the floor, While I wearily sat napping, Suddenly I heard a tapping, And I knew someone was rapping, Rapping gently at the door: "OhI" I cried, "if some assistance Brings this stranger to my door, He is welcome, evermorel" ln he came, on invitation: HHere," I thought, His my salvation: He will have the demonstration, As he always has, in store!" - For 'twas he whose kind assistance Helped me often in the distance, Though I half feared more resistance To my plea than heretofore: And I shrank from it on seeing What a troubled brow he bore, And the wearied eyes he wore! But at last my soul grew stronger: Hesitating then no longer, "Friend," said I to him, 'Amost truly Your forgiveness I implore, But it is my one salvation That I make this application, So have you the demonstration?" - Here he bent his head and swore, "No, I came to get assistance On those problems, too," he swore "Only this and nothing more!" Long I sat there, madly yearning, All my soul within me burning, Longing, thinking things no student Ever dared to think before: "O begone all demonstration! How I wish my education, And the hour of graduation Were a memory of the yore! How I long to look back, thinking They will bother me no more 1 Free from care forevermorelu E. P., '52
