Enduring peace, redeeming peace, with right Triumphant, truth exultant in its mighty The storm clouds riven, war's dread cyclone past. Unnumbered men the cords of death bind fast, But not in vain they perished in the ight. God's gracious plans are now revealed to sightg Now freedom's sun, no longer overcast, W1'll send forth piercing beams of healing light, And pour rich blessings on the rescued lands That long have lain in darkness, held by bands Of fierce oppression, ground by tyrant heel Of autocratic state.

Through the Years Qld Central's Spirit,s Shining dtlS Smile 44 44 44 A warm, heart-centered smile strikes the keynote to a radiant personality, like that indescribable note of "The Lost Chord". Yet how can we define such an elusive and varying feature? It defies our inadequate words, since it is not a static physical quality, but frequently happiness itself, and sometimes success in life. How many crimes of insincerity, however, have been committed in the name of a "smile"? A smile has no chemical ingredients, no set shape, color, or size, and appears, like the sun, in spring, summer, autumn, or winter, un- dimmed by tears of adversity. Yes, a smile lives "Through the Years". It varies with the individual, and each has his own meaning attached to it. It is as free as the wind, and yet should not be as timeless and reckless: for, even a smile, if it is insincere, can wear out, and become meaningless unless it flows from the heart and is timely. There is a time for everything, a time to laugh and a time to be serious- and the Hnal keynote is sincerity. Yes, "Smiling Through the Years" is the best and most durable prescription for happiness I know of. It saves many a doctor bill, and keeps you in the sunshine, where you "keep your sunny side up". Let us keep undying our spirit, by 'Smiling Through the Years"! -ED ESTEL. 6 Central Smiles Through The Years vw iw F7 The St. Louis Central High School has been smiling through calm and strife, joy and sorrow, tribulation and prosperity, war and peace, for ninety-four years. Since its organi- zation on the third floor of the old Benton Grade School building at Sixth and Locust Streets on February 11, 1853, it has gradu- ated almost 15,000 alumni, and more than 60,000 other students have attended it with- out finishing the full four years. It has en- dured the agonies and hardships of four wars and two tornadoes. In World War I eighteen of her sons gave up their lives for their coun- try, and in World War II sixty-four more made the supreme sacrifice. In the tornado of 1927 five students were killed. Yes, our Alma Mater has had many days of sorrow and tribulations, although most of her days have been calm and joyful, and most of her years have been peaceful and prosperous. Following is a list of some important dates in Central history: A FEW IMPORTANT DATES IN CENTRAL'S HISTORY 1853-High school established on the third floor of the Benton School building on February 11.

On the very first day when school opened in September we were greeted by a new principal and Eve new teachers. The new teachers were Mr. Evans, Mr. Rudy, Mr. Gallais, Miss Knoernschild, and Miss Ochterbeck. Our new principal was Mr. E. W. Alexander, who came to us after serving five years as Assistant Principal of Hadley Technical High School. He has been our guiding spirit during the year, and he has introduced several innova- tions, including two new organizations, the Junior Toastmasters and Junior Toastmis- tresses. His vibrant optimism has helped us carry on through two busy semesters of 1946-47. It is impossible to record here a complete list of the year's events, but we must find space to mention a few of its highlights. In September the chief events were the special auditorium session honoring Mr. Alexander, and the opening of the tennis and football seasons. October saw Central's football team fight- ing valiantly through a tough schedule and her better-than-average tennis team finish in fifth place above Roosevelt, McKinley, and Cleveland. The January class observed Color Day on October 12. Miss Friedman became the sponsor of the Student Council, which conducted the first Community Night Pro- gram on October 25.

Thoughts at G ra cl u e tio n By SHIRLEY ALTHOFF The theme of our program tonight is "Smiling Through the Years". This is also the theme of our 1947 yearbook, THE RED AND BLACK. When you think about it, it's quite appropriate: isn't it? Our school has smiled through a great many years, and a great many gradua- tions just like this one, which is the l57th. Tonight I should like to tell you about a few of the events which have helped our class smile through our senior term. Our first day as seniors was Registration Day. Besides the joy and excitement of see- ing old friends after a summer's vacation, there was the additional excitement of being a senior. Another day that I am sure my classmates and I shall always remember, one that was second only to tonight, was Color Day- Colar Day, when we received our red and black ribbons which were our ofiicial recog- nition as seniors. That day, I am sure, all of us thought a lot about our graduation as we walked down the aisle of the school audi- torium almost exactly as we did tonight. That day was the fulfillment of four years of working and waiting. We had been fresh- men when we first saw that wonderful cere- mony of tradition when the colors of our school are handed on from one class to an- other. Can you wonder that we shall re- member it as long as we remember tonight? Besides this event, which set us apart as seniors, there were daily activities in which we participated as members of the regular school body-the football games, for in- stance. How we yelled and cheered for our team! One of the most pleasant things that I know of to do is to sit in the cool autumn air and watch a football game. As the last game came, some of us felt a little sad as we realized that that would be the last time we ever cheer for our team as members of the school body. Auditorium sessions were also very impor- tant to us during our senior term. How we all waited for them! To me, two of the most outstanding ones were the Walker Hancock aud session, when Mr. Hancock told us about his experiences in recovering lost and stolen art treasures in Germany: and also the Christ- mas program which told about the three previous Christmases and the different places where our boys in service celebrated them. An event that we didn't wel- come so eagerly was our CWR's or comprehensive written re- views. These were our term examinations and it seems that the hardest ones always come on the same day. We studied and struggled through them much the same as we had done i. for the past three and a half , years. These were practically I the one and only thing that we didn't appreciate about our senior term. We got a real thrill the day when our rings came. We had all been hoping that they would come before Christmas, and when they did we were over- joyed. How proud we were, and how care- ful with them! We went around showing them off to people all day and we thought that they were the most beautiful school rings we had ever seen. , ! all- Class of January, 1947, Senior Prom. And now, tonight! Tonight, which com- pletes not only our senior term, but also four years of high school. This is the goal for which we have worked so long. We realize, however, that tonight is not the end of our education, but only the beginning of our real education-the education of life, itself. What l-ligh School l-las Meant to Me By MILTON WELLER Primarily, high school has been to me a place to study collected and classified knowl- edge of various types suitable to the advance- ment of my education. It has been a place where I could receive the aid of teachers who had followed the same paths and were quali- fied to help others. There, with the aid of teachers, books, and equipment, I was given the opportunity to study the efforts and works of those before me in order to set standards for myself as Well as broaden my mind. Next, high school has been a place to meet and learn to get along with people of various kinds, not only in classes but also in sports and school organizations. Some became in- fluences of great worth. Others lifelong friends, while others helped only by their mistakes from which we profited. Another important gain was in citizen- ship. We have not only had a chance to learn the principles of citizenship, but also have had many opportunities to practice them. In classes we learn what citizenship is. In the care of the school and respect for fellow students, we practiced it. The Stu- dent Council, an organization for the govern- ing of the school by the students, helped many along this line. Our clubs and sports gave students with special interests a chance to enlarge and exer- cise them. Other students have found hob- bies and friends as well as knowledge by par- ticipating in these extra-curricular activities. As you have seen in these color slides of our activities, smiling through four years of high school has been a lot of fun and excite- ment, but it had another side-plenty of work. All in all, high school has given me a broad view of education, a basis for college work, and an understanding of some of the fundamental principles of life. THE STYLE IN SMILES 1931 New J. Daughter: Mother, I just love gym! Suspicious Mother: Jim who? A scene from the Pan-American Program. And. so, along with other members of the class, I offer to our Alma Mater a smile of sincere thanks for the past, a smile of joyful appreciation for the present, and a smile of hope and determination for the future. After tonight the members of this class will all take separate paths of life. Some will go into industry, some into the business world, and others on to higher education. Whatever direction each may choose, the class expects all to do their best to uphold the honor and high standards of our school. Although our stay at Central has been rela- tively brief, her influence and training will follow us for many years to come. TI-IE STYLE IN SMILES 1947 have you been doing?" "Thirty days." Vile are indebted to many people for the opportunity of attending high school and our free education will always be greatly appre- ciated. On behalf of my classmates, I should like to offer our sincere thanks to the tax- payers of this community who have carried the expense: to our teachers who have handed down their knowledge so willingly, and have so patiently helped us over the rough spots: and to our parents for their aid in furthering our education, thus giving us a better chance to achieve success. We will all try to repay this great debt by becoming good citizens, and by helping to make this a better world for everyone re- gardless of race or creed.

What Our own, our dear old school! thy praise we sing. lVith deepest gratitude our hearts are filled, For lessons by thy tender care instilled, Which through the years have never ceased to ring Like fog bells on a rockbound coastg they bring A needed warning note: our souls are thrilled With dread of danger lurking near. So skilled Thy work, it taught with finished art the thing That men most need to know, how best to live The truth that makes them free to choose the life That more abundant is. untouched by strife Of warring passions-strong and fierce, constrained By love of righteousness themselves to give To service of mankind, with wisdom trained. -W.

There were about four hundred present at this meeting. Our mailing list was very in- complete. and many who would have at- tended didn't learn about the meeting until it was over. The speakers on the program were representatives of the classes which graduated 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years ago. Among these were Sidney Corson 119375, Norman C. Parker fl927j, and Alfred Fleishman 619221. Vocal solos were given by Charles Burmeister and Ed Nolte, a dance number by John Berger, an accordion solo by Wenzel Eberhardt. Mr. Weir made one of his crisp, enjoyable speeches. We were also favorably impressed by the new principal, Mr. E. W. Alexander. Margaret Euerst 119411 was chairman of the program com- mitte. At this meeting Paul Mulcahy, whose prodigious efforts made it such a success, re- signed as president, and Charles Cirippi was voted in as his successor. Lucille McCann was re-elected secretary, and Robert Wellman was chosen treasurer. After the election, Cirippi pleaded that it was impossible for him to take the presidency because of his status as a busy G. I. college student. Miss McCann also insisted on re- signing as secretary since she is to be out of the city this summer. At a hurry-up emer- gency meeting the following agreed to take over for the rest of the year: Preslidenl ............,............, ...NORMAN PARKER, '27 319 N.

VEST DAVIS, '09 Central High School-JE. 7949 The Nlilce Walker Dinner Early during the winter, plans were under way to give a testimonial dinner to Central's most famous coach, Michael W. CMikeD Walker, who retired last September. A com- mittee consisting of Joseph E. Holland. Stratford Lee Morton, Sidney Maestre. Al- fred Eleishman, and James E. CJimmyj Con- zelman, was selected to set the date and make the arrangements. The Alumni Association officers gave their full cooperation, and the dinner was held at the Chase Hotel on March 27, 1947. It was a grand reunion attended by many of Central's famous old grads, who turned out in force to pay tribute to their Alma Mater and to their beloved coach and friend, Mike Walker. Many letters and tele- grams poured in from those who were unable to be present. Dozens of tributes were paid to Mike for his gentlemanly qualities and sportsmanship. He responded with a fine talk that displayed his characteristic modesty and sincerity. Talks were also made by Presi- dent Putney of the Board of Education, Supt. Hickey, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Ben H. Barr. Stratford Morton, Talty O'Connor, and Wil- lis Johnson of the Globe-Democrat. The chicken dinner was good, too. Mr. Walker's main suggestion was that Central should have a magnificent new building in which to cele- brate its 100th anniversary in 1953.

Since the school auditorium holds only 700 people, it will be necessary to hold this celebration in a place that will accommodate several thousand. One oflicer suggests that we hold it in the Conven- tion Hall of Kiel Auditorium and conduct it something like the so-called i'beer" con- certs that were given there a year or two ago. If anyone thinks he has a better idea, let him write a letter to the president or secretary, explaining his proposals. At any rate, put a big Red and Black circle on your calendar around the date February ll, 1948. Personal Alumni Notes One of our most enthusiastic alumni is Richard Harkness C1891 1. He was president of the Boys' Literary Society and recently brought to the school the Boys' Literary So- ciety Diploma of Theodore Koestli 118911, who presented it to the school. Mr. Hark- ness keeps in touch with many other "Boys of '91", including Admiral Leigh Palmer fnow in New York City1 and Dwight Kel- logg and Winfred Ernst Garrison. Another interesting item of school history disclosed the fact that on our diplomas as far back as 1875 the oflicial title of the school as printed on the diploma was THE ST. LOUIS CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL. Such a diploma, issued to Miss Jennie Riddle, who is still living, was brought to the school recently by her grand-nephew, Charles Mc- Aninch, a member of the senior class.

BRYAN J, S, Bryan 1853-1946 GRACE KITCHEN BRYAN The name of William James Samuel Bryan has been associated with the St. Louis Central High School longer than that of any other one person. He graduated from Central in l869, winning the Washington University Honor Scholarship with an average of 98 f2 , which has never been surpassed by a Central student. He was invited to become a mem- ber of the Central faculty in 1873 before he received his degree from Washington Uni- versity, and continued to teach until l895, when he succeeded F. Louis Soldan as Princi- pal. He served as Principal until l908, when he became Assistant Superintendent of ln- struction in charge of high schools. After continuing in the latter position for twenty years, Mr. Bryan retired from active duty, but continued to act as Library Adviser and Historian until his death in 1946. For thirty-nine years he was an actual par- ticipant in the affairs of Central as student, teacher, and principal. Entering school at the age of six, he was actively associated with the St. Louis Public School System during ninety of the ninety-six years of his life. Such are the bare facts. They cannot pos- sibly convey the value of his services or the extent of his influence upon the thousands of students with whom he came in contact. His keen mind and understanding heart will long be remembered. At ninety he was still young enough to read the newspapers with- out glasses, and continue a conversation begun six months previously. As stated in the Eightieth Anniversary Number of TI-IE RED AND BLACK. "So long as Central High School shall continue to open its doors to aspiring young people, the influence of Central's 'Grand Old Man' will go on and on." Mr. Bryan was born in St. Louis on March 12, 1853, the year Central High School was founded, and died here June 18, 1946. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. William Bryan. In 1876 he married Miss Nethie Case, a grad- uate of Central. They had six children, Dr. William M. C. Bryan, Mrs. Grace Bryan James, Mr. Howard Bryan, and three more daughters who died in early childhood. Dr. William M. C. Bryan married Miss Helen Louise Kimlin. They have four children: Dr. William T. K. Bryan, Dr. James Howard Bryan, Navy Chaplain Richard A. Bryan, and Mrs. Helen Bryan Johnson. Dr. Wil- liam M. C. Bryan died in 1925. Mr. How- ard Bryan Csecond son of W. J. S. Bryanj is an engineer residing in Webster Groves. He has one son, Bruce Bryan, who is now at Purdue University after serving in Ger- many during World War II. Mrs. Grace Bryan James Conly living daughter of W. J. S. Bryanj has a son, Dr. Harold James, and two married daughters, Mrs. Alice Finley and Mrs. Elizabeth Tetge. Mr. William J. S. Bryan had six children, eight grandchildren, and fifteen great-grand- ib- NET1-IIE CASE BRYAN children, all descended from his first wife, Nethie Case Bryan, who died in 1889. In 1898 Mr. Bryan married Miss Grace Kitchen, a Central alumna, whom many re- member as a most gracious and charming per- son. Although she had no children of her own, she was a truly conscientious mother to her husbands children by his first wife, and her interest in the activities of old Central continued as long as she lived. She kept up a list of the addresses of thousands of Central graduates and at her death bequeathed it to the school as a priceless legacy. JULIA VALLETTE COFFEY Julia Vallette Coffey 1847-1946 Julia Vallette was a member of the class of June, 1868, and the subject of her very interesting graduation address was "Trifles". "Life," she said, "like the vast ocean, is composed of little drops: little drops of grief and pain, mingled with those of joy, adding color to the whole." "What is a trifle? If we mean small events, then our lives are composed of them. All that surrounds us is but a combination of minute particles. ,The largest mountain is but atoms of dust." "Young people go forth into the world expecting at once to find some great glorious mission. They are apt to neglect the lesser duties and responsibilities which make, for some, the whole, and for all, the greater part of life. If they waste their time in idleness and discontent, they find themselves not ready when great opportunities occur. After all, what is it but the noblest of trifles that have enabled our greatest men to rise from the low- est stations?" Such was Julia Vallette's philosophy, and how nobly did she take care of the millions of trifling duties that were hers throughout the ninety-nine years of her life! She was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Au- gust 23, l847, and died at Pana, Illinois, on August 24, 1946. Her mother was Marcy Ann Field, who came from Rhode Island to Cincinnati and married a hatter named Fred- erick A. Vallette, who later moved to St. Louis and bought a sawmill near Cairo, Illi- nois. He made cracker boxes for General C1rant's Army, ran the blockade between St. Louis and Cairo, and had his sawmill burnt by the Southern soldiers. Shortly after Julia Vallette graduated from Central High School, she met T. C. Coffey, who was a student at Shurtleff College, Alton, Illinois. Soon after he finished col- lege and was ordained as a Baptist minister, they were married. After serving many years as pastor of various Baptist Churches in Illi- nois, Rev. Coffey died in Arizona, in 1930. They had one son, Mr. Roy V. Coffey, who has been a commercial teacher at Central since l9l5, and four daughters, one of Whom died in infancy. The other three daughters are Mrs. C. T. Ward, of Tonica, Illinois: Mrs. Frank Allan Cutler, of Pana, Illinois: and Mrs. A. C. Stanfleld, also of Pana, Illinois. Frank Allen Cutler, Jr., a grandson of Julia Vallette Coffey, was the highest rank- ing student and valedictorian of the graduat- ing class at the University of Illinois in 1942. He had a straight "A" record for four years in chemical engineering. After doing research work in synthetic rubber for the Goodrich Rubber Company during World War II, he was given a fellowship at the University of Minnesota, where he is now Working for his Ph.D. degree. The two granddaughters were both accom- plished musicians and high school teachers of music. Miss Margaret R. Cutler graduated from Eastern Illinois State Teachers College and Miss Marjorie Ward, now Mrs. Joseph Sibigtroth, from Illinois University. Yes, Julia Vallette Coffey spent ninety- nine years dealing with the trifles of life, and what a great mountain of achievement did she build up, one small pebble at a time, as an example of noble living for her children, and grandchildren, and all the world! In fond appreciation Central High School offers a wreath of honor to her memory. Among the hundreds of Central alumni who have entered the medical profession, one of the most distinguished was Dr. Malvern Bryan Clopton, who was born in St. Louis, in 1876, and graduated from Central in January, 1894. He received his medical de- gree from the University of Virginia, but returned to St. Louis and became professor of clinical surgery at Washington University, and also chief of staff at St. Luke's Hospital. He twice served as president of the State Board of Health, and in 1932 was elected president of the Washington University Cor- poration, a position which he held for ten years. Dr. Clopton served in World War 1 from 1917 to 1919 as a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Medical Corps. He went overseas with a hospital unit from Barnes Hospital. He was first attached to a base hospital and later to a mobile hospital unit. His first wife was Mrs. Lily Lambert Vvfalker, who died in 1911. In 1934 he married Mrs. Rachel Lowe Lambert, who sur- vives him. Also surviving are a brother, William H. Clopton, a retired army Colonel of Chevy Chase, Md., and a sister, Mrs. Elkin L. Franklin, of St. Louis. After retiring in 1942, Dr. Clopton spent most of his time at his home at Wianno, Cape Cod, Mass., where he died on April 21, 1947. He was buried in the family lot in Bellefon- taine Cemetery, St. Louis, after funeral serv- ices at Christ Church Cathedral. In 1930, Dr. Clopton donated S250,000 for completion of the Rand-Johnson Memo- rial wing of Barnes Hospital, and the follow- ing year gave a collection of wood cuts and etchings valued at S100,000 to Washington University. Another gift to the university, made in 1945, was his 850-acre Brookhill DR. MALVERN B. CLOPTON Dr. Malvern B. Clopton 1876-1947 farm near Clarksville, Mo., given to be used for research. Dr. Clopton was great not only as a physi- cian and surgeon, but also as a citizen. Dur- ing the seventy-one years of his life he served his city, state, and country, in many capaci- ties, and many honors were bestowed upon him. His name was among those listed in Who's Who in America, and Central High School has long ago enrolled him upon her Super Honor Roll. Our C ity Administrators PHILIP J. HICKEY.

Gundlach Art Consultant Financial Sponsor Mrs. Ross E. Van Landegend When I first entered Central's portals, as a stranger, a few years ago, I undertook to journey through the corridors of this immense structure. While strolling by one door, I heard the chatter of typewriters, page editors, and a few other strange noises. Peeking in, I beheld a busy group of reporters and typists. The News Staff has been and still is doing a ine job of keeping Centralites on the "up- 'n-up" of happenings here and there. Now that another school year has come to a close and a few of us are bidding farewell to Central, that certain little room on the third floor will remain calm and serene for a few months, and familiar faces will forever be absent. No more will Ruth Opfer be heard exclaiming, "Now, where is that ar- ticle?" Nor will Tom Kolocotronis hope for a portfolio. No more will Chester Shidlow- ski have to chase through the halls after his reporters and listen to Marilyn Meyer say, "Scootch it in." Yes, another year in the trials and tribula- tions of the Central News is terminating, and our cub reporters are hitching up their belts for next term. Mr. Gundlach, the staffs editorial director, will still strive to turn out journalists who may, perhaps, some day be- come professionals in that field. We, of the staff, especially those of us graduating in a few days, feel that this has been a successful year and that The News has upheld the true tradition of the press. Oops! Have to say good-bye now. The last issue's going to press. Onbehalf of the entire News Staff I say, "Thanks a lot for your cooperation." -TOM KOLOCOTRONIS.

Howell was high point man, having 8 points: Drager, second with 8 points: Arci- powski and McDaniels tied for third, col- lecting 5 points each. Drager came out top point man for the season, turning in a ine performance for the season. The team as a whole made a very good showing for the year.

Coach The beginning of the football season found a large number of boys being drilled by Coach lngerson. This drilling paid off on the first game of the season when the team made Friday the 13th a lucky day for themselves. The team romped to a 31-O victory over St. Charles. On September 20, Central played their second non-league game of the season. Cen- tral showed great fighting spirit but just couldn't hold U. City down. The final score was Central 13, and U. City 26. On September 27, the students witnessed the closest non-league game of the season. Although the Redwings made nineteen first downs to their opponents' three, they failed to defeat Wood River. The final score was Wood River 13, and Central 12. On October 11, Central faced the final league champs in their first league game of the season. Although the team showed a lot of fighting spirit, they were defeated. The final score was Central 7, and McKinley 13. Central students witnessed the most thrill- ing game of the season, Dctober 18, when Central met their arch rival. Although it was one of the best games of the season, the 4 team was overpowered at the end of the game. The score was Beaumont 26, and Central 13. Central finally came through on October 26. Students who witnessed the game saw Central's first and most decisive league victory as Central defeated Southwest 18 to 6. Central had a narrow escape on Novem- ber 2. Central was victorious in the end as Soldan went under by a score of Central 13 and Soldan 12. The game on November 9 found Central on bottom after two consecutive victories. The score was Central 0 and Cleveland 26. On November 16 Central suffered their most decisive defeat as they faced last year's champs. The final score of the game was Central O, Roosevelt 47. Central finished up the season in good style on Thanksgiving Day. The team traveled to Hannibal for their last non-league game of the year. The score was Central 13, and Hannibal O. The total for the season was four games won and six games lost. The opponents scored 179 points and Central scored 120 points. l946 1946 LETTERMEN Richard Thurston, Captain Ted Nanncy.

BRADBURN, Coach The outlook for the 1946-47 season was not too bright, for the Central cagers did not have one regular returning from last year's team. Only three lettermen were returning. Jim Brislane, Bill Skewes, and Al Mirth, all substitutes the previous year. The first game of the season was against a fairly good McBride five. Inexperience and the inability to hit their shots cost the Red- wings their first defeat, by the rather large score of 34-22. After leading South Side Catholic, another strong Prep League five, throughout the first quarter and midway through the second, in our second game of the young season, the South Side cagers came to life and went on to trounce the smaller Central five by the overwhelming score of 48-33. St. Louis U. High was our next opponent. The defending State Champs had to go all out against a fighting Redwing five, to defeat them 28-23. lnaccuracy on the free-throw line was a main factor in their defeat. After holding Southwest to an 11-IO score at the half, in the opener of the Public High League, the Midtowners again got the second-half jitters as Southwest went on to win. decisively, 42-22. During the Christmas holidays, Central again entered the Normandy Invitational Tournament. Our first opponent in the meet was Fairview, one of the stronger County fives. The Redwings took the measure of the Fairview boys 24-17, with the first sign of showing spark and spunk enough to play well a whole game. Central had to over- come a half-time lead of 6-5, but once the lead was taken it was never diminished. Our next foe in the tourney was McBride, who again defeated the hapless Central team, 43- 29. After a first-quarter score of 9-6, the "Micks" pulled away and we never threat- ened throughout the game. Blewett was our next league opponent. Again the Red Wings failed to last a whole game, as a close score at the half, 20-18, was turned into a trouncing at the end, 55-33. Cleveland, a perennially strong five in the district, was pressed all the way, with a slightly improved Midtown five succumbing to the tune of 45-33, in the third successive league defeat. Central then traveled to Bayless High School, of the South County League. After overcoming a 10-point lead in the first quar- ter and trailing by only one at the half, the Redwings again faded to lose 39-31. Al Mirth garnered 14 points for the losers. Our next non-league affair was the annual game with Cape Girardeau, the first of a home-and-home series. The Redwings were ahead at the half, for the first time in the season, but again dwindled in the second. The final score was 31-21. 1946-1947 In one of the more exciting and close games of the season, Soldan handed Central its fourth straight league defeat, 34-33, in an overtime thriller. Ackerman's 19 points were too much for the Central cagers, as they failed to hold a one-point lead in regular time, and lost a three-point lead in the overtime session. Beaumont trounced Central in a non-league game, 44-22. Leading at the half, 24-6, the Bluejackets played their second team in the majority of the second half and breezed to its victory. Central traveled to Cape Girardeau for its next game, as they avenged a previous defeat at the hands of the Cape five, and ended a six-game losing streak. lt was the first time a Central live had defeated Cape Girardeau on its home floor since 1940. Final score was 25-23, as Al Potolsky forced the Central at- tack with 10 points. An improved Central five pressed a strong U. City team throughout, before they finally succumbed to a 32-28 defeat. Failure to make free throws was the major cause of defeat. Jack Howell led Central scorers by hitting the net for 10 points. Central continued its fine play against the No. 3 ranked team in the district, Roosevelt, as they lost their fifth consecutive league game, 45-33. Skewes' l0 points was high for Cen- tral, but Lum Edwards' 18 points for Roose- velt proved to be the margin of defeat. Central went on to win its first league game against a hapless McKinley five. After a close first half the Midtowners pulled away and won by a decisive score of 35-28. Jack How- ell's 13 points paced Central. 3 Beaumont was the last regularly scheduled and last league game for the Central Red- wings. In this game the Bluejackets won their 18th straight game of the season. How- ever, this game was in direct contrast to the previous meeting of the two schools. The Central cagers jumped off to an early start and battled the mighty Jackets on even terms for three and a half quarters, when the fight- ing Redwing squad finally let up and Beau- mont scored 15 of their total points. Final score read 44-26, an injustice to the close play of the game. Skewes' ll points paced Central scorers.

Central was again entered in the sub- regional tournaments. For our first opponent we drew Normandy, strongest team in the County and ranked second only to Beaumont in the district. This game marked again the improved playing of the Central squad. The Redwings battled on even terms throughout the whole game except for a lapse in the second quarter, when Normandy scored 16 points. Inaccuracy of shots caused the Mid- towners to lose a very well-played game as the Redwings outshot the mighty Normandy team at least two to one. Jim Brislane led Central scorers with seven, as a valiant Cen- tral team lost 42-30. Central wound up its season by winning only three of their eighteen games. The Red- wings landed in seventh place in the Public High League, with a one and-six-record, while winning only two of its eleven non- league games. The prospects for a successful season is bright, as three regulars are return- ing for next year. LETTERMEN Al Mirth Bill Skewes Jack Howell Earl Lawrence Jim Brislane Jim Patterson.

Bradburn. had a fairly successful season. Starting this year again in the Public High School League each school plays every school twice, making a total of 14 games to play. The season opened on March 26 in a non- league affair, with the Redwings losing a close hard-fought game to McBride, 3-2. Another non-league experimental game was played with U. City in which the Tigers won 9-6, I-Iousher doing a fine job of relief hurling. The next non-league game was with South Side Catholic and resulted in the first victory for Central. It was an extra-inning ball game, with Don Kopfensteiner hurling a fine game. The hard-hitting Bill Mirth won the game in the ninth inning by slugging out a home run. The following day South Side visited Cen- tral and the Redwings won 4-2, with Elmer Roberts pitching and with help from Bris- lane, lVlcRoberts, and Talghader at the plate. The first league encounter was with South- west and resulted in a 3-2 victory, Kopfen- steiner doing the pitching and also driving in two of his team's three runs. The next league game was with Roosevelt, in which Central pounded out 15 runs to Roosevelt's 7. Cleveland visited Central for the next league game, which Cleveland won, 6-5. In another non-league game, East St. Louis had an ll-8 victory over the Redwings, Jess Bell and Elmer Roberts sharing plate honors. A few days later the East Siders again proved too strong for the Central nine and won the game 12-l. T946 In the next league encounter Blewett won from Central 9-4. The defeat was caused mostly by errors and not hitting in the clutch. In the next league game Soldan's rally was cut short in the seventh inning and the Red- wings came through again with an 8-7 vic- tory. Kopfensteiner was the winning pitcher. In a free-scoring league game, Central wal- loped McKinley 10-3. In a race for Iirst place, Beaumont defeated Central 6-2, with Beaumont's ace hurler. Loeser, only allowing three hits. Next, Central visited Roosevelt and the latter outscored Central 6-5. Tough breaks in the late innings decided the defeat. Mc- Roberts, Mirth and Central's ace hurler. Kopfensteiner, were the big guns at the plate. Central won from Cleveland 3-O in the first shutout of the season. This game was pitched by Talghader, who was helped out at the plate by lVIcRoberts and Humphreys. The next league game was a reversal of form as the Redwings defeated McKinley by a score of 7-2. This was a game in which Central's hitting and pitching, combined. proved too strong and was a disaster for Mc- Kinley. McRoberts, Bell, Mirth, and Bris- lane were the batting leaders in the game. Again in a league game Central walloped Soldan 1 l-1, with Kopfensteiner again pitch- ing a masterful game. Murray was Central's big gun at the plate. The next game Beaumont won by the score of 6-O, with Beaumont's pitcher allowing only two hits and no runs. In the last game of the season the Red- wings outscored Southwest 8-6. This was Central's eighth league victory against six defeats. This game put Central in third place. .'cATCHE '-SEC0 D BASE-. xii K Y N ff!
