Armed with slightly more than FAITH in themselves and God, they had left their homes and loved ones with a FAITH strong enough to sustain them through those first severe and trying winters in the new land -- an unwavering FAITH which was to huild homes, churches and schools, clear the land, till the soil. unite the people in a mutual inter- dependence, fashion the first colonies, and give birth to wiqlaw nation with a foundation firmly enrouted in A . History tells us that years later the same FAITH made possible the revolt against arrogant rulers, hav- ing its culmination in the Boston Tea Party which fanned the flames of insurrection and kindled the spark of revolution by a Declaration nf Independence. reconfirming their FAITH in the equality, liberties, and inherent rights of all men. Thus begun, with only unswerving FAITH as a ruling guide, America's boundless wilderness was ex- plored, her deep rlvers bridged, her fertile prairies and proud mountains spanned by rail and road, and a civilization reached still undrenmed of hy many nations uf the world. ' These things which today we take for granted were hard-earned by men of vision, courage. and FAITH. ln recent years the world has been beset hy two wars. and the upheaval and disturbed conditions that surround and follow such wide-spread catastro- phles provide the medium for distrustful thinking and a resultant lack of FAITH in other nations and other individuals. Yet, a moment's reflection on the past will show the greatness of America was built by the FAITII nf individuals in God, FAITH in themselves. and FAITH in those honest men around them. This "FAITH" of which we speak made strong communities, strong states, and a strong nation -- strong enough to survive the trials of time. But there is no standing still in the "America of Progress," and she will continue to progress through the vision, courage, and FAITH of her sons and daughters, May you be one of those who has and keeps that FAITH. owaus-u.u.mon sn... unw- 1- I Ulm ln' el- . -- Mmm EW YEARS OF PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION Ol"2LU0l" In presenting to the pupils and friends of Alton High School this Golden Anniversary edition of THE TATLER, it has been our purpose to make the book a true picture of high school life 1 its work, its play, its serious effort, and its harmless fun. This 50th Anniversary issue contains events of interest from May 1, 1954 to May 1, 1955. The pictures of high school life fifty years ago are repro- duced from the first edition of THE TATLER, issued in 1905. It is hoped that successive issues of the Annual will preserve a complete record of the life of the High School. ll if ETHE BOOK WITH PAST PRESE I X E f , Ml , D MX-X. " i 1 li-iii AISI!! J it wr?

It began in the basement of the Unitarian. Church on Third Street as a two year high school. There were only a few students who went to the school and only simple types of learning were used. After a few years, the people became more educational-minded and in 1886. a new building was completed on Tenth and Alton Streets. This was a brick structure three stories high containing twelve rooms: costing about 540,000 and. at that time, it was considered one of the 'finest in the state. The upper floor was given over to the high school in which a three year course was taught. After sixteen years the people of the city again thought they were getting behind the times and con- structed what was at that time the latest thing for the buildings of a high school. In 1902, he Roosevelt build- ing. costing S50,000, on Sixth and Mechanic Streets. was ready for occupancy. This building was unsur- passed by any in many of the larger cities. It had a gymnasium, auditorium, library, lockers for all students, shops for manual training and mechanical drawing. Musical instruction was made available, and athletic teams were started. This new building had three floors and a gymnasium and cafeteria below. The TATLER for 1905 states, "Who could wish for anything more magnificent?" It was a fine building, and served its purpose well: but as the number of students increased, the school building became too crowded. The citizens of Alton again responded and a new senior high school was erected. The new building was started in 1926. It is con- structed on a large tract of land north of College Avenue in Upper Alton. The building faces west and is divided into four main parts, the auditorium on the south, the gymnasium on the north. the main building in the center, and the work rooms and the engine rooms north of the main building and east of the gymnasium. The campus of Alton High School is very attrac- tive. On the south a large semi-circle of grass extends to College Avenue. Shrubbery and trees are planted along the walks from the cen.ter door to the street. On the west of the building, the lawn gradually slopes to a line parallel to the gymnasium and audi- torium and then becomes a terrace to the parking lot. On the other side is a hill on which the present East Iunior High School building now stan.ds. As soon as a new East Iunior Building can be completed on Wash- ington Avenue the present East Iunior building will be- come a part of the High School. North of this is the Olin Vocational Building. The football field is north cf this and is lighted for night football games. This is the last year for the present football field' to be used. The 1955-56 season will see Alton's home games played in the new Alton Public Schools Stadium on State Street.

X FAITH On its third and final departure for America in ' the year 1620, the good ship Mayflower carried the Pilgrims through the vast and unchartered turbulent waters of the Atlantic on their hazardous voyage to Plymouth Colony. Armed with slightly more than FAITH in themselves and God, they had left their homes and loved ones with a FAITH strong enough to sustain them through those first severe and trying winters in the new land -- an unwavering FAITH which was to build homes, churches and schools, clear the land, till the soil, unite the people in a mutual inter- dependence, fashion the first colonies, and give birth to a new nation with a foundation firmly enrooted in FA ITII. History tells us that years later the same FAITH made possible the revolt against arrogant rulers, hav- ing its culmination in the Boston Tea Party which fanned the flames of insurrection and kindled the spark of revolution by a Declaration of Independence, reconfirming their FAITH in the equality, liberties, and inherent rights of all men. Thus begun, with only unswerving I"AITH as a ruling guide, America's boundless wilderness was ex- plored, her deep rivers bridged, her fertile prairies and proud mountains spanned by rail and road, and a civilization reached still undreamed of by many nations of the world. , These things which today we take for granted were hard-earned by men of vision. courage. and FAITH. In recent years the world has been beset by two wars, and the upheaval and disturbed conditions that surround and follow such wide-spread catastro- phies provide the medium for distrustful thinking and a resultant lack of FAITH in other nations and other individuals. ' ' Yet, a moment's reflection on the past will show the greatness of America was built by the FAITH of individuals in God, FAITH in themselves, and FAITH in those honest men around them. This "FAITH" of which we speak made strong communities, strong sies, and a strong nation -- strong enough to survive the trials of time. But there is no standing still in the "America of Progress." and she will continue to progress through the vision, courage, and FAITH of her sons and daughters. May you be one of those who has and keeps that FAITH. owlrouunnaus Anal, nn-n 1 1-. llillln --iwnmhmm , 0 ,
