As high school days draw lo a close, you will realize a cherished goal and reward—your diploma. This reward you should accept with pride, for it has been hard-won by the constant vigilance and effort of a dozen years or more, and it represents one of your greatest achievements thus far in life.
• •• n
But what were the ingredients necessary for this achievement? Enthusiasm, honest effort, promptness, attention lo detail—all of these in no small way have contributed. Other qualities, acquired along the way, have added their full measure, as you learned the importance of cheerfulness. of service to others, helpfulness, friendship, and staunch loyalty to your school, family, and friends. In brief, you learned the art of "getting along" with others.
This ability to "get along" was not gained from a textbook. The extent to which you acquired this quality is the result of experiences with people and the degree to which you have tried to make these associations pleasant and helpful.
You are now equipped with an education. But. how well you can apply what you have learned, how successful you will be. how you will be able to contribute to the success of your family, your community, or your place of employment, will also depend on how well you have learned the art of "getting along" with your fellow man. To be successful a business must learn to live with other businesses in a business world, in a community, and with people. The Alton area is prosperpous partly because many good businesses have been able to accomplish this purpose, and you, in the future, will need similar qualities lo be equally successful. This ability to "get along." coupled with frankness of purpose, sincere earnestness of endeavor, and a humble and grateful altitude, adds untold strength to your formal education and will help establish your individual future success in this, the world's greatest nation—America.

The Redbirds dedicated Alton Public Schools Stadium by edging Marquette 7-6, in the first game of the season. In their second encounter, Alton crushed McKinley 21-0. The Redbirds then lost the next
seven games giving a season mark of two wins and seven defeats. Although the season’s record was not impressive, a fine group of lettermen will provide the nucleus for next year’s team.Season

The preparation of the Tatler is an extracurricular enterprise at Alton High, which requires the co-operative effort of a large efficient staff. The new staff members are appointed in the Spring of their Junior year. This staff considers the selection of a theme and plans a rough dummy of their publication which will come off the press a year later. In September they set up a schedule for three chief divisions of year book work— taking pictures, solicitation of advertisements, and selling of subscriptions. This

Student Council Keeps Alma Mater
On Even Keel
The Student Council, which is sponsored by Mr. Dewitt Thomas, meets once each week to discuss problems and improvements for the student and school. The Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes are all represented so that suggestions and ideas may be presented by majority representation rather than by a select few.
Each year the Council handles our talent show and Homecoming. This year they also published a “Buzz Book” and selected the school assemblies. The Councils’ chief source of income is derived from handling the concessions at the football games.
Every Spring there is a colorful campaign and election of officers. The 1955-1956 officers as elected last spring were: Tom Monical, President and Bob Diaz, Vice President. At the beginning of this school year the Council selected Barbara Lindsay as Secretary.Girls’ Council
The Girls’ Council, sponsored by Miss Teter, is a service organization composed of Junior and Senior Girls. Some of their projects have been selling Alton High beanies and stationery, candy sales, entertaining new girls from out of town, and checking coats during the tournament. In the past, among many other projects, the Council has presented bulletin boards, and helped buy the audiometer for the Clinic. The council meets the second and fourth Mondays of every month.
The Boys’ Cabinet is an organization with a membership of about 25 boys which serves the school in many ways. Mr. Jureziz, the club sponsor, assisted by Jack Rhoades, who is club president, set up plans to be used in selling concessions at basketball games. The boys pass out programs at football games, maintain a large school bulletin board, and take tickets at school functions. This year the Cabinet purchased some spotlights to be used for school plays and assemblies.

DEBATE or DRAMA ... A VOICE
Tryouts are held once or twice a year for Dramatic Club. Candidates who are chosen for membership are selected for interpretations of roles, enunciation and diction.
One play is presented each semester by the Dramatic Club. Members help with lighting, props, make-up, and prompting in addition to acting in plays.
This club was founded in 1923 for the purpose of creating and expressing the interests in drama and its function.

there's MORE to it than
The National Thespian Society was started at Alton High in 1932; the Alton Troupe 126. It is composed of students who wish to further their dramatic interests. Having been in a play, and having had the required number of lines, they are eligible to become inducted into the society.
An induction ceremony is held twice a year when new members are then taken into the society. A banquet is held at that time and the Best Thes- Best Thespians of the year
pian is announced.
Some of the activities of the group are candy sales and directing plays.

ZERKOWSKY, JO ANNOur Advertisers
TO ALTON STUDENTS:
Without the cooperation of the business, industrial, and professional men and women of the Alton area, this 1956 Tatler would not have been possible. Because of increased costs of yearbook production, as in the case of everything else, we have been obliged to count more heavily upon their financial assistance. Without this advertising the subscription price of the Tatler would be almost prohibitive for the average student. Because of Alton’s citizens’ interest in you and your welfare, and our school in general, they have been generous in taking ads. They have also proved kind and considerate to our solicitors.
Therefore, it behooves us to show these firms and friends the value of their advertising in reciprocal good will. Mention their ad in the Tatler when you patronize them; favor them with your cooperation in every way you can.
AND TO ALTON HIGH FRIENDS:
The 1956 Tatler has served you again in presenting your valuable message to Alton students, alumni of the school, and citizens of the community.
Because each Tatler lives and relives from year to year in one thousand homes in Alton, is seen this year and for many years to come, as a thoughtful reminder of your good will to the school, or a reminder to come in and buy your merchandise, or to employ your services.

After all, we’ve become old friends during your stay here. Whether you knew it or not, almost every day of your school year you’ve used a product made by Olin Mathieson, or one that Olin Mathieson helped make. Just read the list on the right, and you’ll see what we mean.
Once you’re established in business or professional life you’ll probably hear a lot more about Olin Mathieson. A good many of you may have business with us. And a few of you may even come to work for us. There’ll be room because Olin Mathieson is growing.
Here are the skills, facilities and resources of one of the country’s most rapidly expanding industrial organizations. You and the Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation will both be going forward, and we’ll meet each other often as we do.

At high school days draw to a close, you will realize a cherished goal and reward—your diploma. This reward you should accept with pride, for it has been hard-won by the constant vigilance and effort of a dozen years or more, and it represents one of your greatest achievements thus far in life.
But what were the ingredients necessary for this achievement? Enthusiasm, honest effort, promptness, attention to detail—all of these in no small way have contributed. Other qualities, acquired along the way, have added their full measure, as you learned the importance of cheerful ness, of service to others, helpfulness, friendship, and staunch loyalty to your school, family, and friends. In brief, you learned the art of "getting along" with others.
This ability to "get along" was not gained from a textbook. The extent to which you acquired this quality is the result of experiences with people and the degree to which you have tried to make these associations pleasant and helpful.
You are now equipped with an education. But. how well you can apply what you have learned, how successful you will be, how you will be able to contribute to the success of your family, your community, or your place of employment. will also depend on how well you have learned the art of "getting along" with your fellow man. To be successful a business must learn to live with other businesses in a business world, in a community, and with people. The Alton area is prosperpous partly because many good businesses have been able to accomplish this purpose, and you, in the future, will need similar qualities to be equally successful. This ability to "get along." coupled with frankness of purpose, sincere earnestness of endeavor, and a humble and grateful attitude, adds untold strength to your formal education and will help establish your individual future success in this, the world's greatest nation—America.
