Peace At Last 44 cc cc
My country, O my country, peace at last!
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. Secure from blight
By ruthless pride, assured all peoples' weal.
-W. J. S.

ng Through the yea
Through the years old Central's spirit's shining,
Shining through the years!
Faced with fears
She'll march with courage f
Smiling through her tears.
She will triumph
In the blazing strifeg
There'll never be defeat
In Central's life.
Through the storm
Her sails will not be shaken,
And no harm
Wz'll find her overtaken.
Through the years,
Till earth is dead,
And dawn's light disappears
She will come through,
Smiling through the years!

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
Let us keep undying our spirit, by 'Smiling Through the Years"!
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:

Events of Our
This year, in many ways, has been a
crowded, "banner" year, in Central's history.
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
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
October saw Central's football team fight-
ing valiantly through a tough schedule and
her better-than-average tennis team finish in

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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.

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.

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.

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.

The Ninety-Fourth Anniversary Reunion
On February ll, 1947, a reunion was held
at the school to celebrate the ninety-fourth
anniversary of the founding of the school.
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-
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
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:

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.

l.et's lVlake a Date Now
For February 'l'l, 1948
Central will be 95 years old on February
11. 1948. and the officers are already making
plans for a grand reunion on the ninety-fifth
birthday of our Alma Mater. 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.

Stands our glorious Alma Mater,
In the midst of noise and bustle
Of the city's life,
Calm. serene, reserved and noble
Unassailed by strife.
Sing our chorus of devotion,
Till we rend the sky:
Hail to thee our Alma Mater.
Hail to Central High.

O to thee, Our Alma Mater,
Dignihed and strong,
Now we raise our loyal voices,
Offer we our song.
Never shall we let our footsteps
Waver or turn back,
Marching ever firmly onward,
'Neath the Red and Black.
Thus we'll sing our heartfelt praises
Till our days shall end.
May thy spotless reputation
All thy sons defend:
May thy walls be never weakened
Nor thy prestige die:
May the blessings of the ages
Rest on Central High.

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:

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
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-
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
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
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

farm near Clarksville, Mo., given to be used
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.

"These are the things I prize
and hold of dearest worth:
Light of the sapphire skies,
Peace of the silent hills,
Shelter of the forests,
Comfort of the grass,
Music of the birds, murmur of the rills
And, after showers,
The smell of flowers
And of the good brown earth-
And best of all, along the way,
friendship and mirth."

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.

MR. INGERSON. Coach
The beginning of the football season found
a large number of boys being drilled by Coach

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

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
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.

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
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.
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
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 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.

The Central High baseball team of 1946,
under the guidance of Vernon J. 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
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
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
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
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.
