"It is not art, but heart, that wins the wide world over.” 169 power has ever denied the divine right of the Senior to give advice. And to this right may we add one privilege — that of leaving with you as a guide, the glorious record of our deeds, our achievements, and our victories. Four years ago, when the Class of 1915 enterd High School, a landmark was placed in the history of F. H. S. From the first we were distinguished as a class of great intellectual ability — this was shown by our victory in the spelling contest, during the first year, over our dignified elders. Along with this ability, our class was not lacking also in oratorical powers, for in connection with our English work we gave an entertainment, and proved to our audience that among our members we had some good material for speakers. One of the enjoyable features of our Freshman year, and one that will perhaps remain as a happy memory in years to come, was a Christmas party given in the Gym, which proved to be a great success. In athletics, too, we took an active part. Thus ended our Freshman year—a year of hard work, but nevertheless one of real attainment and success. As Sophomores we again renewed our studies with an eagerness characteristic of our bunch. During this year several of our number competed in a declamatory contest; a great deal of enthusiasm was aroused among the pupils, and a prize was awarded the best speaker. In the meantime, athletics were not forgotten, and some good basket ball material was developed. The monotony of continuous study must occasionally be broken by social events, and so this year, too, we gave a very enjoyable class party. From year to year our class decreased slightly in number, some taking up other duties in life, while others heroically volunteered to sacrifice their membership with us and to remain with the lower classes—no doubt with the desire to do missionary work among the less enlightened! T hus our Junior year opened with an enrollment of about thirty. It was during this year that we displayed to the full our ability as entertainers when we put on the annual Senior banquet. I he decorations and the spread for this consumed a great deal of time and thought, but no one regretted this in view' of the pronounced success of the affair. This fall, as we entered the Assembly, we were filled with sorrow' at the thought that this would be our last year that w'e could enter F. H. S. as students, and we resolved to make it the crowning year of all. Football first claimed the attention of the boys, and they worked hard to gain honor for their class and for their school. This undoubtedly has been our busiest year, all traditions to the contrary notwithstanding; our members have belonged to various organizations for educational and social purposes, and these combined with the regular routine of work have filled our time to the limit. The Civics Club, under the direction of Miss Smith, has given two very successful programs; and in the Senior-Junior debate w'e again proved our superiority by winning the decision of the judges. And last, but by no means least, we have taken upon ourselves the task of publishing this annual as a memorial of the Class of ’15. Soon w'e will be thrust apart into wider circles of the world to seek further education or different means of livelihood, but wherever we are, or in whatever occupation engaged, we are sure of the Class of 1915 that it will always be true that “our hearts will still be loyal to the Orange and the Black.” 17 —Leona Horning.Senior Lyric 1 he Sheppard watched her lamb by night; The Finch flew piping by; The Miller at her grinding task, Heard someone shout “Wiedey!” Don tried to Grant the last request, But, alas, in vain he tried. For there beneath the spreading Ochs, From Eaton, William’s son had died. We took him to his resting place, Whilst upon the Reid played Dora; Mary Ellen lingered Long at his grave. But Bill would not Lev Ora. We came home through the Tunnell, Where there had been a wreck, And Bertha found a Se(a)mon, Who sailed with Vivian on Daech. In the Wreck we found Leona, Horning her way out; Delphine used her sturdy Arm, But at last Burl Dugger out. 18 Catalogue of Class of 1915 Favorite Song. Present Occupation. Aspiration.

The aeroplane, for instance, has advanced in three years from a mere curiosity and an unreliable means of transportation to a wonderful machine of practical usage and necessity in war. Just so has the Class of 1916, from its entrance within the High School doors in 1912 as a new plaything and curiosity of the upper classmen, developed into a real necessity and a true asset to the welfare of E. H. S. A firm framework to our class machine was built while in the grades, and we further advanced our standing in our first high school year by our earnestness and zeal in study; we firmly declined to enter into any frivolities, and contented ourselves with just one party, given in the spring. As Sophomores, we proved our merits still more clearly, surely, though silently, widening our powers, and adding, as to a machine, the still needed bolts and bars. 21Now, as Juniors, we have returned once more as a class of about thirty, and with some surprise to all concerned, have openly installed the engine, which is called “Class Spirit." In the fall we selected as our President, or Engineer, Leonard Schwartz; as Vice-President, Donald Sager, and as Secretary, Irma Kriege. Our "lads and lassies” now take an important part in athletics and literary work. We have lost some of those who were with us in previous years, and have added a few whom we had not expected before. I he girls and boys who returned at the autumn term, expecting to again take up their work in Domestic Science or Manual Training, found themselves sadly disappointed, for the faculty had not so ordained; these branches had been handed over to the Sophomores and Freshmen. But at any rate our girls have the honor of having proved, by their success in their previous two years in this work, that Cooking and Sewing are advisable subjects for the High School to offer; and the same thing applies to our boys in their Manual Training work. In the great Senior-Junior debate we did our best and gained additional recognition, and we proved ourselves to be truly good losers in this one rare reverse of circumstances. Still, in future days, we confidently expect to boast an orator among us, judging by the splendid efforts of our Junior boys. In building our machine, however, we must expect to encounter some difficulties and adversities, since all these go into the making of a strong structure. During the remaining time, and in the next year, we hope to finish our allotted task. We will then polish our complete machine; and the four bright years at E. H. S. being ended, we will attach our wings, and with our colors, red and white, sailing above us, fly away to add our needed abilities to the great world. —Amy Love. 22Junior Class Roll Bessie Barnett—“Give thyself up to jollity, 1 hou child of joy.’ Marion Brown—“Shut up in measureless content.” Leila Buckles—“O, glad 1 am to name her name.

Deep into the darkness peering, I had sat there, dreading, fearing, While the fateful time was nearing, and I trembled more and more; Hut the silence then was broken, from its depths came back a token. With these words then faintly spoken, “You’ll not need your ‘pony’ more.” 1 was as quiet as it could be now, and 1 heard the words, “You’re free now,” Merely this and nothing more. Open then 1 Hung the shutter, with a more than angry mutter. And with many a flirt and flutter there stalked a bird across the floor; Not the least obeisance made he, not a minute stopped or staid he, Hut with mien of lord or lady, perched above my study door; I m the High School Spirit,” said he, “I’ll stay here until you’re ready To stop cribbing evermore.” 1 hen indeed I grew quite frantic as 1 heard this threat gigantic, And with many a senseless antic, my whole heart I did outpour — “Wretch!” I cried, “the devil’s lent thee — through the Faculty he’s sent thee — Respite, respite, and relent thee from the fate you have in store! Spirit, kind, bring back my ‘pony,’ I am helpless all alone, he Has helped me evermore!” Child, he said, “ twas not the devil sent me here to cant and cavil, Nor am I a tiling of evil, though my threat you so deplore; As to the pony that you grieve for, Y ou’ll his help no more receive, for He has taken his last leave, for he is on the other shore!” 1 hen I cried, 1 cannot pass now! I can never make my class now!” Quoth the Spirit, “Nevermore!” I hink of my deep consternation, as my wild imagination Conjured all the tribulation that the future held in store; As 1 pondered in seclusion, seeking for a safe solution Of my case, this resolution came to stick forevermore: I his my vow, Oh High School Spirit — this my resolution, hear it — I will crib — no — nevermore!” 24 —Elsie Sager.Sophomore Class Roll James Allen Albert Ballweg Edna Boeker Irma Boeker Aubrey Bollman William Borchwardt Eugene Buhrman Florence Considine Vivian Daech Henry Delicate Geraldine Desmond Margaret Flynn Olga Goedeking Clara Handlon Marie Henley Walter Herder Minnie Heuiser John Johnson Shelby Klingel Gordon Knight Louise Kramer Irene Lane Hazel Logan Myrtle Miller Arthur Pfeiffer LaVerne Poe Hulda Prang Nora Runge Oscar Schmidt August Selzer Ora Smith Udell Stallings Ivy Waugh Helen Wiedey President -President Secretary Treasurer Edwin Woods 25Sophomore Class History As the Freshman Class of 1913 toiled up the stairs to present ourselves as candidates for membership of h. H. S. for the ensuing four years, we had but two fears — first, that we would not be appreciated, and second, that some musical Sophomore would suggest singing “Eli Yale." But contrary to our apprehensions, we were welcomed by the instructors and the Athletic Association with open arms — and open hands — and our pedigree ("as Freshmen first we come, etc.”) was kept unsung for the first morning at least. Our actions during our first few days of High School were no doubt very amusing to the upper classmen, for the ways of E. H. S. were considerably different from those of the lower grades. But we realized our humble position and rarely broke in where we were not wanted, and although we were victims of the panicky, trembly feeling which seizes every Freshman class, we immediately set to work, after the novelty of our new life wore off, to show our jeering elders that we were not so “green” as they thought us to be. It was during our Freshman year that we showed our prowess in basketball, for we stood second in the annual series of class games. 26Our class colors are green and white, and no one can deny that they are the prettiest colors in the High School, excepting always the old Orange and Black, which of course can never be approached. As a class we are always ready to lend our aid along intellectual or athletic lines, and you will always find us “willing and ready, and firm and steady, boosting for our old High. We feel equal to the Seniors and feel that we have a place in the High School which no one else could fill. This fall when we entered High School as Sophomores, we missed the faces of several of our former classmates, but as a compensation for our loss, we discovered upon looking around, the presence of a number of others, whom we later learned to be classmates who had joined our ranks from neighboring towns. Through the remaining years of our High School life we hope to win such fame and glory, and to attain such heights, that it may truthfully be said that our class was one of the best that ever toiled within the walls of E.

Of course when you have mam small packages you have many precious things. 1'• H. S., that is your rich possession in the I reshmen — a class of almost ninety members! I once overheard a Sophomore say to one of his classmates, “Just listen to what the Freshmen think they are! V es, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, we not onlythink, but we know what wc arc, and we arc going to prove it to you. Already we have made you upper classmen sit up and take notice, from our entrance, we ve “done things.” When, after successfully completing the Edwardsville grades, about thirty of us entered E. H. S. in September, 1914, our fame had so far preceded us that a delegation of pupils had flocked in from all over the country to join us, and even some of the Sophomores had waited to become members of 1918. As a result we have the largest and most powerful class that has ever entered our High. Now some classes are so ashamed of their reputation that when they enter High School, they stand in corners and scoot down in their seats to escape observation. 1918 is made of different stuff. We made ourselves at home immediately, ready to add to the glory of old E. H. S. Freshmen are members of the " arsity Basketball Teams, an unusual condition. Both the boys’ and girls’ Freshman teams have won a game from the Sophomores. The Seniors absolutely refuse to play us, and we have not yet had the chance to meet the Juniors. Nor are we slow in Dramatics. Our ability was early recognized by Miss Smith who asked us to dramatize for the entertainment of the school, Longfellow’s masterpiece, “The Masque of Pandora. 1 he presentation of this Grecian drama by the Freshmen has been one of the greatest events of the year. Blue and gold were chosen as our class colors, and as a result of the labors of our class artists, A. B. and W. R., our banner was so attractive that we were asked to head the big parade which announced the basketball game with Alton. We are no longer at the foot of the High School ladder, for some bashful little “preps” flocked up here last February and took that place. We’re up a rung or two. So “pep up!” you upper classmen— Three long years ahead remain, Clear the way Ere Seniors’ glory we can gain. For the Freshmen, climbing faster But we will get there, might and main— Every day. So clear the way! —Edith Marks.1918 You’d scarce expect tots of our age To write our thoughts for the printed page. And if we chance to fall below The stuff the Seniors might bestow, Don’t be too quick to criticize— Remember, please, our youth and size. VVe know we’re young—they say we’re green— But that’s no reason why ’18 Hasn’t good cause to be more proud, In many ways, than the older crowd; They guy us and roast us because we’re small, But we know it’s envy, after all! We’re humble, very—we know our place— We meet the Seniors with downcast face; The Juniors, and even the Sophs, as yet, Have us pretty well bluffed; but soon, you bet We’ll show those smarties we’re not so green!— When we once get our nerve, look out for ’18! After all, when you come to think about it, We’re really some class. No one will doubt it When they learn that ne’er in the days of yore Has there been a class of our size before; Ninety names on our roll! Ninety brave lads and lasses! What think you of that, you proud upper classes? Nor of quantity only do we care to boast— Our short record has shown that we have the most Of the quality also that the High School possesses— Of that same highbrow stuff that the Senior professes. Oh, really, when once I warm up to my theme. I’m not quite so modest as at first it would seem! In athletics, too, we make quite some show— Our boys and our girls make the older teams go; When they play us, they say, “Those Freshmen, confound ’em!’’ You see we’re so little, we run all around ’em! On reflection, it is not as fresh as ’twrould seem, If we think ourselves good as the Varsity Team! So here’s to ’18; may her nerve keep on growing, As mine has since I started. And then there’s no knowing But what, in a year or two more at the most, The class w’ill assemble its still mighty host, Take possession of High School and all places about, And turn Soph’mores and Juniors and Seniors clear out! 32 ''y'- A ?9 Kfcfaffau OKGANlZAriONS The Philomathian Society Donald Staab.........................................................President Jessie Williamson.......................................................Vice-President Leonard Schwartz...........................................................

This society, like its sister, the Platonian, was organized to promote public speaking and literary talent. The programs, held every two weeks, usually consist of a fewr educational papers, one or two orations, and several musical selections; occasionally a short play is given. This year every pupil belongs to one or the other of the literary societies. The colors of the Philomathians are brown and gold, and their mascot is an owl; the society possesses a handsome brown and gold banner and a stuffed owl. New officers for the society are elected each year, and may be chosen from any of the classes. This year the Philos elected Seniors for their president and vice-president, and Juniors for their secretary and treasurer. These societies are not secret and anyone is permitted to attend their sessions. 33The Platonian Society Doxald Sager .......... President William Wayne .......... Vice-President Gordon Knight...................Secretary Ansel Brown .......... Treasurer From the Platonian Society, to the Platonians scattered abroad—greeting. Be it known that Old Platonian still flourisheth like a green bay tree. We, her present members, still find in her our alma mater, that leadeth us along paths of development. As years pass, she vvaxeth stronger, and in beauty and in strength—as we, her children, think—she far surpasseth her rival, the Philomathian. She leadeth us into the paths of eloquence, end maketh of us graceful and polished speakers. Or words to that effect. At least that is the theory; and if the theory is not always realized in actuality, the fault is ours, not hers. The Photo Club An entirely new enterprise was inaugurated with the organization of the High School Photo Club, under the leadership of Mr. Petersen—himself a proficient photographer and close observer of nature and things. While the taking and developing of photos was announced as the primary purpose of the club, it has not been so seriously engrossed in this work as to allow itself to become over technical or ultra-scientific. Time and again—and then some—it has relaxed from its more solemn duties to engage in the social festivities to which even the deepest thinkers occasionally resort. Photography demands subjects to be photographed, and where can such subjects be found in such profusion as in the country? Hence, quite naturally, frequent picnics and tramps afield arc features of the club’s activities. Many evening meetings are necessary also to properly discuss and plan the work and these have not been neglected. Seriously speaking, though, the Club has been enjoyable and profitable. It has served to instruct in the art of taking and finishing pictures, has given rise to not a few social pleasures, and has succeeded in bringing together many of the upper class-men in a spirit of friendliness and comraderie. 34Girls’ Carol Club Under the direction of Miss Krome, it goes without saying that the Carol Club is a success. It is composed of some fifty High School girls, and was organized this year to take the place of the late lamented Boys’ Glee Club. Its first public appearance was on the occasion of the concert given March 15th. in conjunction with the High School Orchestra. Since that time the Club has appeared at various school programs and its contributions have uniformly been received with enthusiasm. High School Orchestra This organization, while only in its second year, has proven to be one of the most attractive and serviceable ones of the school. Also under the efficient leadership of Miss Krome, it has developed into a first class musical body, and its efiforts have been quite ambitious. It has been a valuable aid to the High School in the various entertainments given by the school, and the numbers contributed by the orchestra have always proven to be most attractive additions to the programs. The orchestra is composed of fifteen pieces. Practice is held weekly and the members are conscientious and enthusiastic in their work. The High School is justly proud of its orchestra. 35Civics Club History ARK! What was that? The jingle of gold and the tinkle of silver! Such a glorious sound wafted its way o’er the breeze to E. H. S. Before we had time to ascertain the cause of the unusual sound, a messenger appeared in the door-way, a brownie, one of the crafty metal molders, whose home is in the cavern of the almighty Smith’s mind. He announced that hundreds had accompanied him to our midst to mold and shape the desires of our hearts. We gave him a cordial welcome and bade him invite the artful throng to enter. On they came, flooding the room with a celestial light, which they alone have power to give. A tiny elf with chisel and hammer in hand announced that this legion had come forth from the cavern to organize the Civics Club of 1914-15. Recovering from the shock which the tiny visitors had given us, we proceeded in a businesslike manner to elect officers for the new Club. Donald was chosen president with Jessie as his vice, Delphine received the most votes for secretary and treasurer, and Bill Baker carried the majority for sergeant at arms. The artful workers lost no time and kept the members of the club busy and delighted with brilliant studded ideas that they chiseled and molded for the exclusive use of the club members. So great was the outpour of newly-formed and jewel-decked thoughts that Don said, “It’s too much for me, let Tom and Jess work hand in hand”—and they did. One day in the fall a band of the elves came forth from the cavern with a perfectly shaped idea and presented it to the club. It was this—“Let us have an election.” We did so and it was a great success, for everyone enjoyed the voting. It was pleasing to see how well the mighty Seniors (for of such was the club composed), arranged things under the direction of the dwellers of the Smith’s mind. Clink! Clank! Clink! rapidly move the tools of the workers of the great Smith. A new idea! A program is to be given. What kind? A debate. Then a golden thought with a silver lining is ushered forth from the cave by several of Smith’s mighty helpers. We will present the European situation. Both the debate and play received much favorable comment. Again we feel proud of our ability to do things. With such environment as had been ours all winter, we began to broaden out and show its influence by making impromptu speeches. These were good and led us to the discovery of a few facts. So much had we learned of the department of political science that deals with the rights and duties of citizenship that we attempted a mock trial. 1 his was a continuous round of mirth interwoven with a chain of valuable information. Alas! news of the Mighty Smith? Yea. just as mountains of joy and sorrow are removed so are the towering mountains of wisdom—and thus it came to pass in our case; before our eyes the Smith we had known so well left us and in her place there dawned another fair chance under whose auspices the Civics Club again resumed its work. 36 Ferne Miller.Football The 1914 football season opened at Carlinville, where with our raw recruits we suffered a 39 to 0 defeat. Carlinville High with their holdover team played us off our feet at all times during the game. This game put a little crimp into the team as the injury of Capt. Weber, and Knight who was playing at quarter was a serious handicap thus early in the season. The following Saturday Staunton came to Edwardsville. The score 13 to 0 in Staunton’s favor does not begin to tell the fierceness of the battle waged. Our visitors scored their two touchdowns during the first eight minutes of play. From that time on it was a question as to whether we would be able to push over a touchdown. During the last four minutes of play, by working Kearney “to death” we scored our lone touchdown. We might add in passing that we were much impressed by the Staunton man who refereed the game. Litchfield came the following Saturday. By playing an open game that the visitors did not seem to understand we rolled up a 57 score. This did not take up all the playing time, for Litchfield not to be outdone by us, ran our ends for two touchdowns. Sager, and Wieneke could not have been dreaming of the Litchfield girls, for as yet they had not made their acquaintance. ATHLETICS Of all games will you please explain why the Gods forsake us during our yearly battle with Alton High? Playing at Alton we suffered a 13 to 9 defeat that was a shame. Our line fell back before an Alton fullback who walked through. es! walked through! Next we went to Litchfield. The game was one of the slowest we have ever seen. Had we played the game as strongly as a few of our players did the ladies present, no telling what the score would have been. However we won our game 6 to 0. 37The game at Staunton played game of the season. After battling up and down 0 to 0. the following week proved If two teams ever played the field for forty minutes to be the hardest and best it was played on that day. the game ended in a draw, Playing Western Military the following Saturday we met a team out of our class. Everything would have gone all right had not the staying qualities of our team flown. At the end of the third quarter the score stood 0 to 0. With the beginning of the fourth the Military Lads began to pile up the scores. When the smoke cleared away the thirty-nine points our opponents had run up stared us in the face. Taken as a whole the 1914 football season was a success. The players, together with the school as well gained some enjoyment from the games played. The High School students supported the team throughout the season, it never being a question of whether the team was winning their games. Football Squad. Third row: Staab, Baker, Schwartz, Westhoff (Coach), Klingel, Knight, Kearney. Second row: Sager, Wieneke, Reid, Eaton, Long. Front row: Tunnell, Weber (Captain), May. 38This article would not he complete without a word or two about the players. Capt. Weber, who through this year and last played at half, did not put up the same game on the offensive he did last year. His blocking however gained your attention. Weber suffered injuries in the first game of the season, that might have had something to do with his game. Capt.-elect Sager: This was Sager’s second year at end, where he put up a defensive game that was great. His offense suffered for the fact that he dropped a good many passes. The team in choosing Sager captain for next year selected the right man. May at center played the best game for the first year men. His strength in the line cannot be measured. Eaton, and Staab at tackle played good, hard, consistent ball throughout the season. Both are seniors and will be missed in next year’s team. Baker, and Tunnell who held down the guard’s positions both graduate this year. It will be a hard matter to fill these positions next year. Reid and Knight held down the position of quarter. Reid played a speedy game, most noticeable the latter part of the season. Knight, while rather light, played a wonderful game for his weight. Kearney at full was the mainstay of the team. In two years we have not met a team that could stop him. Long who made up the backfield with Kearney and Weber is a first year man. Nook gave the team and the school the best that was in him, always fighting till the last; he played a nice line of ball. Kingel, and Robertson, utility men, were a valuable asset to the team in that they were able on short notice to fill any position open. Basketball Sqlad. Standing: Robertson, Ryan, Allen, Tetherington, Hays, Baker, Schneeberg, Westhoff. Sitting: Sager, Stallings, Dugger, Eaton, Teasdale, Lanham, Schwartz. 39The Marathon Camp. Basketball I lie basketball season of 1914-15 was to some a failure because of the number of games lost; to others, understanding the basketball question better, the season was the greatest kind of a success. The team this year was beaten by teams that last year were looked upon as not being in our class. From somewhere up the line, the teams representing the Irving, and the Raymond High Schools came to Kdwardsville and won from us. Blackburn College, too, was among our visitors who defeated us, as was the Litchfield High School. While we lost these games, no game was lost by more than eight points. During each of these games fifteen players got into action. Some of our games might have been won, had it not been the policy of the coach to give each member of the squad a chance to “try his hand.” Thus the winning of games was sacrificed in order to give those who have the bigger part of their high school days before them a chance to work out. We did want to win the Alton game, but we didn’t do so. You can read the reason in the "Passing Show.” We however were not to run the whole season without a victory, for Madison lost to us at Madison by a one-sided score—and then Collinsville! 1 be Collinsville game was the hardest, the closest that the team played. Collinsville some time throughout the season had won from all the nearby schools without suffering a defeat, and then to think that they came to Kdwardsville and lost a 29 30 game. It was a nice game to end the season with. Karly in the season we lost a game to Granite at Granite, together with a couple of games to the High School Alumni. 40Olympian-Marathon Camps In the early part of the school year. Miss Smith and Miss Hiles organized all the girls interested in basketball into two camps, the Marathon and the Olympian. Dorothy Gable was chosen captain of the Marathons, and Merle Lawder of the Olympians. A series of fast games was played, but the “Marathon Runners” could not keep up with the “Olympian Sports,” and the Olympian camp carried off the honors. However, among the best features of the organizations were the many pleasant social gatherings in the “Gym”—without boys. In January the Olympian Camp entertained the Marathons in honor of Miss Smith, previous to her departure for Illinois University. BASKETBALL SEASON—CONDENSED SUMMARY IV estern M Hit ary.

I'he Juniors accepted, and proposed the following question: “Resolved, That the Yellow Race is a social and economic detriment to the White Race in this country.” They elected to take the affirmative side, while the negative was left to the Seniors. The debate was given without a break; both sides did splendidly, but victory came to the Seniors. The Juniors were represented by William Wayne, Donald Sager and Leonard Schwartz, while Krome Boeschenstein, Donald Staab and Tom Eaton carried off the honors for the Seniors. Miss Hiles and Miss Fiegenbaum deserve much credit for the success of the affair, for it was through their efforts that the debate was so well presented. The Civics Club Program The Civics Club in December gave a short public program, opening with a debate on the question, “Resolved, That municipal ownership is preferable to private ownership.” The affirmative was supported by Fern Miller and Chris Jahns, but Maurice Kearney and Dorothy (iable won the laurels for the negative. At the close of the debate a short play was staged as a burlesque on the European war. 1 he characters represented the kings of the various countries involved in the war. 431 he whole program was much enjoyed, to judge from the comments of the large audience that was present. The Mock Trial Seemingly encouraged by the success of its last appearance, the Civics Club, about the last of February, again appeared in public—this time in a mock trial before the Honorable Judge Kearney. I he criminals were Dorothy Gable and Leila Sheppard, who were charged with having forged the name of one Frank VV. Westhoff for the sum of five dollars. I he attorneys for the state were Thomas F.aton and William Levora, while Krome Boeschenstein and Chris Jahns represented the defense. The two defendants were found guilty as charged, but were granted a new trial on the grounds that the defendants were not in the court room when the verdict was rendered. I he Greek History Play “Masque of Pandora” Sophomore: 1 hink you the Freshmen are too ambitious?” Junior: Nay. Ambition’s made of sterner stuff!” I he Greek History class, under the direction of Miss Smith, near the close of the semester’s work, produced Longfellow’s “Masque of Pandora,” as a study of the Greek drama. 1 he playlet was well staged and artistically rendered; and Pandora’s sins wire realistically portrayed. Previous to the play, a series of interesting papers were read on various phases of Greek life. Juniors, is not that “sterner stuff”? Orchestra-Carol Club Concert For the first time in many moons a purely musical program by High School talent was staged on March 15th, by the combined efforts of the High School Orchestra and the Girls Carol Club. On account of the I abernacle meetings which had been in session for some weeks the audience was not so large as it should have been, but thur enthusiasm made up for their lack of numbers. About seventy-five members of tin school participated in the program, and in addition to the numbers by the orchestra and club, solos and duets were splendidly rendered by Hazel Logan. Carl Latowsky, and Della Henry. All in all, it was an entertainment of high order—one of the most pleasing ever given by the school. 44The High School Parade (With professional acknowledgments to Mr. Kipling.) "Why all these flags and pennants?” asked the High School on parade; “They’re for the hig procession,” our Mr. Westhoff said. “And why the big procession?” asked the High School on parade; “It’s to show the High School spirit,” our Mr. Westhoff said; "We' re going to play a game tonight, and we’ll need all our ‘pep’— We must win or die a-fighting, to maintain the High School rep— So form your line like soldiers. Mark time! Forward! Hep!— We’re out to win this evening’s game from Alton.” “What will people think of us?” asked the High School on parade. “They’ll know that we’re awake, at least.” our Mr. Westhoff said. “Will our marching make us win the game?” asked the High School on parade; “It sure will help a-plenty,” our Mr. Westhoff said; “We expect, of course, to win it, whether you help out or not, But we want you to contribute all the ginger that you’ve got; Show us that the school has really lots of pepper—good and hot— And we’ll do our best to win tonight from Alton.” (The morning after.) “Are we awake or dreaming?” asked the High School on parade; “We’re awake all right—our dream is o’er,” our Mr. Westhoff said; “What was that awful sound we heard?” asked the High School on parade; “The announcement of the final score,” our Mr. Westhoff said; “We tried our best to heat ’em, but they tried a little more, You backed us up and helped us, but we couldn’t tie their score— We did our best to win the game—please do not be too sore That we didn’t win last evening’s game from Alton.” The Basketball Game With Alton Given: 200 enthusiastic E. H. S. students, 1 rainy night, 1 Tabernacle meeting, with 9 rooters from Alton. To prove: That the E. H. S. team, minus 1 3 of its best players, who were on duty at said Tabernacle, can win the game from Alton. Such was the proposition which we faced on Friday evening, Feb. 19th. Not being what one might call “stars” in basketballometry, we didn’t exactly see how we 45were going to prove it, and—well, perhaps we didn’t fully prove it, but at any rate, we had Alton thinking we had found the solution until the game was three-fourths played. The legend “pep up," which appeared prominently on the sidewalks of the principal streets several days before the game, together with an enthusiastic school parade, had the desired effect, and in spite of the rain, a record-breaking crowd gathered in the H. S. gymnasium to watch the game. Enthusiasm ran high for we desired very much to retain our supremacy over Alton. The yell leader was on hand and the prevailing idea seemed to be “if you have yells to yell, prepare to yell them now.” Too much noise on the part of Edwardsville during Alton’s first free throw resulted in their scoring an extra point. After that it was nip and tuck: Alton ahead— even; Edwardsville ahead—even; Alton ahead—until at the end of the first half the score stood 20—22 in favor of the home team. The crowd was wild—in fact if the half had not closed when it did there would have been some fearfully strained voices in the class rooms on Monday. The beginning of the second half was characterized by a grimness of determination to win, evinced by both teams. A tin trumpet, to be banged against the wall when its owner was out of breath, was added to the yell facilities, and again the game of see-saw began. First Edwardsville was up with Alton down; then Alton up, Edwardsville down. Finally, without any apparent reason or excuse, the home team began fouling and Alton scored on free throws. l ime after time the throw counted either one or two, for if the ball missed the basket at first throw it went in before Edwardsville could break up the play. And so, although the home team fought bravely, the second half registered 34 to 28 in favor of Alton. Thus we failed to find the proof of our proposition, but we had demonstrated to our entire satisfaction that our team can play a good game and fight it out to the finish even with heavy odds against them. This 1 think you will all agree is quite a satisfactory Q. E. D. After the Western Military Game If a body meet a body, Limpin’ through the hall, If a body’s eve is mottled Like the leaves in fall, If a body’s nose is skinless, He’s one “mussed up” all— It’s ten to one he’s been a-playin’ The gentle game, football. 46The Football Banquet On March 23rd the football squad was tendered a splendid banquet by Miss Marvel and her Sophomore cooking class. Shakespeare says, "the sauce to meat is ceremony,” but Shakespeare evidently had no such course served to him as this: Fruit cocktail, roast beef, mashed potatoes with brown gravy, creamed peas in patties, lemon jelly, olives, Parker House rolls, cabbage salad and wafers, ice cream. Lady Baltimore cake, coffee and mints. Between the above courses the banqueters were entertained by selections by the “Imperial Quartette,” the “Quadruple Songsters,” and by Miss Dorothy Brown. Following the spread, with Mr. Stull as toastmaster, toasts were offered by Capt. Weber, Mgr. Kearney, Messrs. Overbeck, Westhoff, Petersen, Ford, Sager, Long, Staab, Tunnell, Eaton, and Baker. At the regular election then held, Sager was selected as captain of the 1915-16 team; Mr. Petersen was elected manager, and Ed Long, assistant manager. The football boys left the banquet with the firm conviction that cooking and athletics are deservedly two of the most popular courses of the school. Some E. H. S. Alumni in Higher Education. 47Domestic Science Domestic Science was introduced into the Edwardsville High School in 1912. The course is limited to two departments, sewing and cooking. The cooking department is equipped to accommodate twenty girls in a class. Each has an individual gas burner, an oven and a cabinet containing a set of dishes and cooking utensils. Besides this there are several sinks, an ice chest, and cupboards for general use. The sewing room equipment consists of a number of sewing machines, lockers, tables and incidental necessities. In this work the girls are taught to draft patterns, to estimate the amount of material required, the value of materials, and to what purpose each is best suited. The department is in charge of Miss Edith Marvel. The course is extended to the Freshman and Sophomore girls only. Both cooking and sewing receive the same weight as any other high school subject, and a whole credit is given for the year’s work. Twice a week a double period is spent in laboratory work, while on the three remaining days, one period is spent in careful text-book work and note taking. Manual Training The Manual Training Course, organized two tears ago is one of the most popular of those offered in the high school. The equipment provided is excellent. Two large rooms are devoted to this subject: one is used for finishing and the other for bench work. The latter is provided with twenty-two Sheldon work benches, and tools for the accommodation of twenty pupils. The course is now offered to Freshmen and Sophomores. Pupils are required to give seven hours per week to this work, and full credit for graduation is received in this subject. Among the more ambitious problems attempted by the hoys in Manual Training are book-cases, reading lamps, Morris chairs, and library tables. The work turned out by the boys is the wonder and admiration of all who see it. A handsome exhibit of work produced this year was given downtown during the latter part of March, in the show windows of E. A. Keller Co., and excited much interest and favorable comment from the public at large. Mr. F. W. YVesthoff, the capable instructor in this department, organized and planned the course when it was established, and it is largely due to his efforts and his efficiency that the course has proved so popular and successful. The odors from glue-pots and stains, the sound of hammers and saws, daily announce to the passers-by that the Manual Training boys are “on the job.” 48Calendar of Year 1914-1915 OUR PRINCIPAL ON THE JOB SEPTEMBER. 8— Opening of school.

S., and be the Prof, of Spelling. S. K.—“I want to be the President—nothing else will satisfy—that’s the reason that my record in my studies is so high! I’ll take no lesser office—I’ll be no common dub—I’ll be President, or nothing—of the ‘Keystone Club!’ ” A. J.—“I want to be a writer of moving picture plays; to perfect my style and diction. I am spending all my days. The teachers are unreasonable—when I flunk, they think I shirk—I really am too busy to do my High School work!” G. L.—“I want my sixteen credits—that’s all my soul’s desire—I want my seventy-five per cent—I do not ask for higher! And when I have my credits that I need to graduate, I’ll bid farewell to E. H. S., and leave her to her fate!” H. B.—“Now that I’ve reached the High School, I ask for nothing more—this has been my great ambition for the last five years or more. I’m a member of the High School now, I care not what else betide—if I never do another thing, my hopes are gratified.” D. G.—“I want to learn Geometry so that I can teach the stuff—and what I’ll do to the class I have will be revenge enough! I’m going to grind right hard this year until I can untangle an equilateral postulate, from an isosceles right angle!” L. S.—“I want to be connected with higher education; my feeling toward the sciences amounts to adoration. I wouldn’t care to teach the stuff—for that I’m not so keen—but still I’m interested in Science—Oh, you know what I mean!” R. T.—“I want to be a benedict! (What’s that? you want to know? Well, look it up in Webster—you ought to know it, though). It seems to me I'm old enough, and I can hardly wait, but my folks they say I can’t be one, until I graduate!” 53Supplementary Organizations (Omitted in error from our regular department.) the keystone club. Motto: I'aire sans Dire (or is it "Dire sans Paire?”—ask the teachers and the coach). Emblem: A key. I he Keystone Club was organized during the past year, its purpose being—you 'viH s purpose on page SS of this book. I he members of the organization may be distinguished by the great symbol of the club—the key. The official seal, a large key, was presented to the club by the sheriff, as a reminder of friendly calls in the past, and promising possibilities in the future. 1 his key is usually seen on the manly bosom of Kaiser Klingel himself, but sometimes he imagines it a sword, and that reminds him of the war, anil then he has Crown Prince Long wear it. It has been noticed that the wearer of this key is closely guarded by Sergeant-at-arms Weber, with the aid of his able detective, Hawkshaw. The Boll man-Ballweg contingency borrowed Vivian’s pencil-box key and wore it by turns for a whole day, hoping that the presence of said emblem would cause some member of the club to slip them the password and the grip. The Keystone Klub hopes that this "motley crew, ’ as well as all others, will in the future show more respect for their organization; and the Kaiser has stated that this respect will be shown or war will be declared. THE ANCIENT LANGUAGE CLUB. Motto: “When you have a little thought, tell it quick.” Colors : Light green, dark green and olive. The musty mummy in the “Perils of Pauline” did more for Edwardsville High School than the VVildey management ever intended, for there were seated in the audience four youths, to whom a peculiar appeal was made. It caused them to recall their love of the antique; it inspired them with the desire to revive a language which is ancient—so ancient that the students of E. H. S. have forgotten that it ever existed. It is the language of the magic signs. Herbert Koch is the president of this club, and whenever this honored gentleman is seen rubbing his eye, smoothing his hair, or blowing his nose, he is announcing to his eager cohorts that a meeting will be held—perhaps in the second pew of the VVildey at 7:11 o’clock. Other members of this club are Oliver Gius, Elmer Naumann and Ed Wood. One of the laws demands that each member watch the president without ceasing through every hour of the day. The members think Gladys Lax could comply with this rule, and they are thinking of asking her to enlist, but they are afraid she will tell their secrets to some of her good friends. 54THE PHILOSOPHICAL CLUB. Motto: “Licht, Mehr Licht.” Emblem: Box of matches. The TIGER is happy to introduce to its readers the Philosophical Club. It was organized by members of 12. H. S. who found that their gray matter was turning to sawdust for lack of exercise. All research work is carried on in the library during almost any assembly period. The subject for special study this season has been “How may we gain greater obedience and respect from the teachers?” Ralph Corbett and Ansel Brown, after hours of research, are bringing out many interesting and helpful ideas. In an interview with a TIGER reporter. President Schneeberg said, “This is a question which should interest every High School pupil. It is my earnest desire that our conscientious efforts may be appreciated, and that the Philosophical Club may be brought to the highest state of development. “LET THE WEEPING CEASE.” There, little Freshie, don’t cry, You are lonesome and frightened, I know, But don’t feel so blue, The rest of us, too, Were young in the long, long ago; You’d hardly believe that we too once were shy— So there, little Freshie, don’t cry! FUNNY SIGHTS WE NEVER SEE- Burl Dugger, smiling. Emma Tuxhorn, alone. John Johnson, flirting. Fern Miller, satisfied. Dorothy Gable, without her gum. Donald Staab, in a hurry. William Borchwardt, losing weight. The McDonald twins, singing “Deutschland ueber Alles. Michael Krejci, giving French lessons. Clif Tetherington, with a girl. Aloysius Schneeberg, grinding. Jessie Pettingill, giving the High School yell. William Levora, a member of Forsythe’s Boosters. The “Idle Hour,” deserted. An E. H. S. Football Team, without its Alton “hoodoo.” A Junior-Senior banquet, without a fuss. The Photo Club, taking pictures. Studying in the Library. Roland Reid, making a date. Mr. Stull, leading the high school singing. 55In the case of a certain Freshman, Our idea of a good speculation, Would be to buy at what he’s really worth, An’ sel at his own estimation. Nook Long.—“What you drawing, Shelby?” Shelby.—“A horse and wagon.” Nook.—“I don’t see the wagon.” Shelby.—“Oh, I’ll let the horse draw the wagon.” John Johnson says he knows which boy all the girls like the best; but—do you know—we just can’t get the little Dickens to tell us! If I told you the name of this Soph, girl I am sure you all would applaud her— She’s popular very—you all know her well— There’s no need for me further to Lawder. Aubrey B.—“I got a job last Sunday that brought me five dollars.” Mr. Forsythe.—“What! You broke the Sabbath?” A. B.—“Well, one of us had to be broke.” M iss Hiles (after reading Edward Everett Hale’s masterpiece to English class).— “What could be more sad than a man without a country?” Marion B. (feelingly).—“A country without a man!” A Sophomore that we have in mind Is polite and gallant quite— A favorite of the high school girls— A regular carpet Knight. Roland R. (reading).—“Say, what is an ‘alibi,’ Red?” "Red’’ W.—“Well, I can illustrate. It’s proving you were at the tabernacle, where you weren’t, in order to show that you were not at the poolroom, where you M ’ J were. Don. S.—“What the teachers tell me simply goes in one ear and out the other ” Christine W.—“Well, why not? I here's nothing to prevent it, is there?” Miss Fair.—“Who can name the most important date in Roman history?” Louise F.—“Mark Antony’s date with Cleopatra.” A faculty member there is Who for fair play is a regular crank; When the crowd roasts the visiting team, His remarks are exceedingly Frank. 56Department of Correspondence and Advice Edited by Miss Neah Rye. Confidential advice given on matters of business, love, health or politics. Results not guaranteed. Dear Miss Rye: I am a young man of sixteen summers, and one winter—in E. H. S. I am deeply in love. Although 1 see the object of my affection fairly often—at least four times a Jay'—yet I have never mustered up the courage to do more than to ask her for a friendly stroll. 1 have known her now for six months. Do you think it would be presumptious for me to show my increasing interest by perhaps inviting her to have an ice-cream soda? Carl L. P. S.—You can get good sodas at H. D.’s for five cents each. Dear Mr. L—.: By no means; go to it. Ladies admire the reckless, daredevil kind of a man who does not care how much he spends. Even a picture show once a year might be a good investment. N. R. Dear M iss Rye: Will you kindly tell me whether the old saying regarding preachers’ sons and deacons’ daughters is founded on fact? I am very anxious to know at once. Fern M. P. S.—1 don’t care so much about the deacons’ daughters part. Dear Miss M—.: Our observation has led us to believe that while the old proverb is often true, it is not infallible. I think vou could take a chance. N. R. Dear M iss Rye: I have been afflicted all year with a singular lack of energy and vitality. Even the lightest tasks seem burdensome, while hard work is out of the question. I am particularly troubled with a tired feeling between the hours of nine A. M. and four P. M. What would you advise? Do you think it is the result of over-study? Leroy J. Dear Mr. J—.: No, as we diagnose your case, the tired feeling of which you complain, is not due to mental strain. It is more probably due to too much Prince Albert and John Bunny. Try cutting out the old briar and the movies for a while. Sleep eight hours each night—probably you’ll not need a daytime nap then. Dear Miss Rye: Our Agriculture class is much interested in scientific cultivation and expect to conduct some very important experiments along this line. Can you tell us whether the milk-weed has ever been successfully crossed with the squash, to produce squash pies? Maurice K. Dear Mr. K—.: We doubt the practicability of the experiment you suggest. Why don’t you try crossing the egg-plant with the pig-weed, to get ham and eggs? N. R. 57The Symptons knew it! The first symptom appeared in Freshman English when Alfred Daech was reading Mark Antony’s speech. He had just drawled out, “Lend me your ears,”— and then it happened. The ears were promptly loaned and were waiting to hear what came next, when he stopped and—yawned! Then we knew the jig was up—and that everybody would be doing it in a day or two. You have only to see Roy Judd trying to drape himself around the whole Senior section, or see the dreamy, “far-away-to-the-north” look in Marion Brown’s eyes, or the number of times the words “sleeping in Assembly” appear written all over the face of our nosey friend, the deportment book—to know that it is really here. And the I- ield 1 rips—another symptom! Every class in school wants to take field trips every day in the wek. Bill Baker will walk four blocks and back twice a day to see if his radishes are coming up—if he can get out of an Ag. class to go to the Ag. garden. 1 he Physiology class want a field trip, and Oscar Schmidt thinks he knows where there is a fine old skeleton they can find some afternoon between three and four, if they could just go after it. Geraldine couldn’t think of a better place, so she suggested that an excursion to the slaughter house would he enjoyable and profitable. Even the Geometry class think they could understand triangles better if they could see them in the woods and fields. es were sure Spring hever is around, and it’ll catch you, too, if you don’t watch out! Doctor, to Mrs. W.: “Milton is overworked. He needs a complete rest.” 1 he next day: Milton W. cultivates the acquaintance of “Bob” Tunnell. 58Nursery Rhymes—Revised Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn! The sheep’s in your turnips, the cows in your corn. The chickens are eating your radishes, too, And cut-worms are cutting, Oh Little Boy Blue. So up with the lark at breaking of day, And dig them, and “shoo” them, and scare them away. For you can’t study farming, and bumper crops reap, While under the covers and fast asleep. Hey diddle diddle, Miss Krome and her fiddle, Year cards are coming out soon; ’Twould make a dog laugh to see some reports, And think of the reck’ning in June! I had a little pony, I used him every day, But I lent him to a lady In Virgil class one day: She whipped him out to use him, When the teacher stood before— And I’ll never lend my pony To a lady any more! Sing a song of knockers, Pocket full of lie. Four and twenty fairy tales, All baked in a pie; When the pie is opened The yarns begin to cool— Isn’t that a pretty way To advertise a school ? Little Senior Bo-Peep has lost her sleep And doesn’t know how to find it, Just wait till June— She can sleep till noon. And sleep the night behind it. 59From the size of one of our Freshmen— Somewhat fat, but no ignoramus— A stranger might judge he’d had a Steiner two Of what made Milwaukee famous. Miss Ward (in spelling class).—“You have spelled the word “orange” with two r’s; you must leave one of them out.” Kenneth Shaw.—“Yes’m; but which one?” Miss Fiegenbaum.—“What is a simile r Sophomore.—“I forget.” Miss F.—“Well, if you said, “My days at school are as bright as sunshine,” what figure of speech would that be?” Soph.—“Irony.” To say that this Junior’s a student Is perhaps going a little too strong, Hut to tell all he knows of a lesson, You’ll find that it don’t take “Nook” Long. Udell S.—“No girl ever made a tool or me!” Clarence R.—“Who did, then?” From the pompous display of one Senior And the majestic front he puts on, You’d think him a king or a prince. Or at least an old Spanish Don. Albert B.—“Mother, I don’t feel very well.” Mother.—“That’s too bad: where do you feel worst?” Albert.—“In school.” Miss Fair.—“Who were the Quakersr” Della H.—"They were the people who manufactured oatmeal.” AT THE TROLLEY INN. Said a bald-headed man to a waitress bold, “See here, young woman, my cocoa’s cold!” She scornfully answered, “I can’t help that, If the blamed thing’s chilly, put on your hat!” I eacher (about to inflict chastisement).—“Young man, have you anything to say before I punish you ?” Sophie.—“Yes, sir, if you please. I would like to have it on the Palmer Penmanship system—the heavy strokes upward, and the light strokes downward. Baker is an active man, His jaws keep going some, For when he doesn’t chew the rag, He works on pepsin gum. 6061m-te “Tiger” Staff of IQ15, wish to express {Heir appreciation to {He many advertisers wHo Have so liberally aided our efforts.
