There's Clifton, John and Rollie Reid That’s nowhere to be found; ’Tis leap year, faith, and in the hall Three girls at them did smile,— They dropped their books, and hats, and all. And ran for half a mile. Chores : Oh, our boys are brave, our girls are fair, The finest in the land; There's no other class that can compare With this most glorious band. Sa here’s to ninteen-sixteen’s class, And to old E.H.S. Whose every lad and every lass Is sure to win success. Oh, Esther likes her own way best, And Nora is beguilin’, And Catherine’s full of laugh and jest. And Ryan's always smilin’; Don, “Nook,” and Willard, all and each, As athletes always shine. And Bill, he makes a dandy speech, And I Leonard argues fine. Chorus : Yes. he argues lnog and fine, my lads. And kills a lot of time. Which always pleases his comrades,— Redad. it’s worth a dime,— So here's fo nineteen-sixteen's class. And to old E.H.S., Whose every lad and every lass Is sure to win success. When Hilda, Florence, also “Dot,”— Most popular all three,— Decide the class should all be shot, Then shot we’re sure to be. Fern Olive is a noisy child. And Delia is another. The Irma's both are easy riled,— Sure, one is worse than t’other. 18Chorus : Oil, Wieneke’s a lanky lad, When on detectin’ bent; You’d lietter hide if you’ve lieen bad, For lie’s our President. So here’s to nineteen-sixteen’s class, And to old E.H.S., Whose every lad and every lass Is sure to win success. Sure, Gladys, May and Margaret Are lovely girls, ’tis true; Emanuel likes the girls, I’ll bet, And Bessie’s aye true blue; Arrali, Marion Brown and Amy Love Are always strong for art, And Amy, too, in literature Most ably does her part. Chorus : Oh, the Seniors are a studious lot, With talents not a few, When we get through, as like as not, We’ll till a book or two. So here’s to nineteen-sixteen’s class, And to old E.H.S., Whose every lad and every lass Is sure to win success. Sure, last of all, there’s Elsie Kuehl, A very worthy poet, Though, in my heart, I truly feel That you will never know it. So now you know the Seniors all, A mighty class they be, And when they answer to Life’s call. Let’s give them “three times three.” Chorus : Sure, our boys are brave, our girls are fair, The fairest in the land, There’s no class that can compare With this most glorious band. So here’s to nineteen-sixteen’s class, And to old E.I1.S., Whose every lad and every lass Is sure to win success. 19 —Kusie Kuehi..Flie Seniors T Ar Jh wi A5kbt AT wi va ' — liiiw.

We do hereby bequeath to the Junior Class, all of our many charms and great intellectual abilities, with which aid we hope that they, in turn, will uphold the dignity and honor of Seniors, when they shall reach our high level. In addition we leave to the Juniors the care of our very dear and beloved Science teacher, with whom we wish the aforesaid class to deal kindly.

To Axel Anderson. “Hawk” tenderly Itestows his extra length, with which we hope that Axel may one day lie able to reach the cloak room hooks. To Joyce Weber, “Bed” leaves his much treasured cognomen, and upon August Seize r we bestow the honor of the Iron Cross,—“Hocli der Kaiser.” To Josephine Lawnin, Hilda leaves her ability to get to school on time; to Gerry Desmond, the whole class bequeaths its merriment and its stock of soprano voices. “Nebo” Long, with great magnanimity, leaves his now world .....us diary to Ansel Brown, with the hope that it may prove of great benefit. We leave a certain lean Freshman with a kindly eye to the gracious mercy of Gladys Hotz, and to her friend, “Pony." we leave the refreshing memory of a certain Senior. To Carl Latowsky we lend our advice on “How to Persuade Her to Propose,” while upon Simon K. is hereby bestowed a certain seat,—he can find the one,—in the Senior Section. May fond memories cluster, etc. Upon Milton Wahl we bestow the great air of importance, owned, collected and concentrated by our John Flavin: and to George Funk we bequeath the plug of “Sjiearmint," which has lieen in the constant employ of Dorothy Gable for the past year. And lastly,—but not least,—we leave Emma and Viola in the clutches of the faculty. (Signed) The Class of l!H(j.

CLASS MOTTO “We Can, Who Think We Can.” EDITORIAL. Each year the class of Hi 17 comes a little nearer the goal which the members of the class chose for themselves many years ago. Each school year the class gains more enthusiasm and approaches a little more closely to its ideals. We, the members, realize that youth is the beginning of life, and that it is the time for getting ideas to lie worked out in later years. So, through many strifes and struggles, we have never lost sight of our three greatest ambitions: tirst, to have at least one member become President of the United States; next, to excel every poet, not excluding the immortal Shakespeare; and last, but by no means least, to take up Mrs. Pankhurst’s great work. From present indications, we have every chance of realizing our ambitions. Nevertheless, occupied hourly though we are in doing our work to the best of our ability, we have never forgotten the social duties of a Junior class. And our youthful spirits are similar to those shown in the speech of a certain Senior: Miss Wilder fafter a particular trying day in German III.), “I can’t see why a big boy like you will jiersist in acting like a child!” Red (modestly), “I know I'm awful big, but I’m pretty young yet.” 22 ovage of the Juniors On the first Monday of September, 1!)13, our good ship. The Freshman. with a large crew on hoard and Hying an orange and black Hag, set sail on the Seas of Education for the distant harbor, Knowledge,—a voyage that will last about four years. The first few days of our voyage were uneasy ones; however, we had several trusted and experienced pilots on board, and they piloted our ship to the ports of History, Languages and Mathematics, where we spent a considerable part of our time before proceeding to our final destination. Occasionally other ships,—those which had set sail in previous years,—would cross our path, but as they had become well acquainted with the seas they felt themselves sujterior to us. Sometimes these ships would gather at one place where we would have contests in athletics, and our crew always made a good showing. At the end of the fiist year we were promoted to the next ship in rank, the Sophomore. Our crew had been somewhat diminished by that unrelenting being. Inefficiency, but others from foreign countries had joined our ranks, for they had heard of our wonderful institution and were determined to derive benefit from it. Our voyage at this stage was very interesting, for we received many extensive views of the works of great mathematicians and Homan generals. We are now on hoard the third ship in rank, the .Junior, and we have touched at the port. Science, where conditions are phenomenal and mysterious, but our pilot is very well acquainted with this port and through his patient guidance we are able to sail steadily onward. At the end of this year we exp - t to be promoted to the Hag-ship, the Senior. With this ship, we sha'l be able to reach our destination, where we will regretfully leave her and go out into the wide, wide world to help fight the battle of existence. 23 —John Johnson.Junior Class Roll James Allen—“Good nature and good sense must ever join.” Albert Ballweg—“I have eternity to rest in also.” Edna Boeker—“She is herself of best things the collection.” Irma Boeker—“Jolly, but always ready for work.” Aubrey Bollman—“I hear a hollow sound; who rapped my skull?” William Borchwardt—“There was a time when I was very small.” Harry Brown—“I was only made to be admired.” Eugene Buhrman—“Which one shall I take home tonight?” Vivian I)aech—“Silence sweeter is than speech.” Henry Delicate—“A good jest forever; he is wit’s peddler.” Geraldine Desmond—“With a smile that just won’t come off.” Edna Doerper—“Life without laughing is a dreary blank.” Margaret Flynn—“Irish, and proud of it, begorra.” Olga Goedeking—“What she will to do or say seems wisest and best.” Viola Gueltig—“Did you ever notice her when she was behaving.” Marie Henley-—“Long of statue, short of speech.” Walter Herder—“Built for comfort, not for speed.” John Johnson—“A high class comedian, whose wit never deserts him."

SENIORS 10 Through the Senior Class professes To be a mighty crew, To have students rare and talented And athletes not a few, Help having quite a fall, How could our estimation When they fizzled so compel tely In that game of basketball? Through the four long years of High School We have heard their sickening boast, That of both brain and muscle The Seniors had the most; 'Twas with some condescension That they played with us at all.— Why, they said “they’d snow us under— Their middle name was basketball!" But when the game’s rude shock was over, And we’d shown them what was what, They crept away quite in a daze,— A wiser, sadder lot: And we’ve come to the conclusion That they’re not much after all, If they quit as cold in other things As they did in basketball. Soliloquy Our school is a stage. And all the multitude of students, merely players: They have their entrances and often rather sudden exits: Each one in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the wee l’rep Enters upon the scene, showing a marked ignorance By his unconscious acts within the first few days, To the ways of men. And next comes the Fershman. Strutting into the large Assembly, To take his place with his learned elders. And then the Sophomores, dictating to the school The management of its affairs. Following this the “flighty” Junior. Judging each one by himself. And next the "mighty" Senior With worried brow contemplates the intense misfortune to the school, To be so soon deprived of his renowned presence. And so lie plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into commencement garb. And with pompous tread lie marches up To take his prized diploma. Last scene of all. That ends this strange, eventful history, Is the emerging into mere oblivion,— Sans brains, sans fame, sans name, sans everything. 25 Hazki. Logan.26OFFICERS Louis May. .

CLASS MOTTO “Nothing great is lightly won.” l)o you remember the class that entered E.H.S. in September, 1914? Well, that was our class. Of course, a few had entered the preceding February, but the most of us made our debut in the fall. Did you ever see a more cheery, more ambitious, more energetic, or better looking class than ours? Then, the size of it, too! Now, ’fess up; we surprised you all, didn’t we? And we will continue to do so, too. We are the class that is putting E.H.S. on the map. Every corner of the county has its representative in our class. — Aren’t you glad we’re here?—We’ve made them all open their eyes. Every class, too, is anxious for our good will; for when any subject is to be settled by the students, our class is large enough to hold the balance of power. For instance, in our Freshman year the upper classmen received us with open arms at the election,—reason, votes in view! 27 TAs Freshmen we attempted many things, and were successful in nearly all. One of our most noteworthy deeds was the production of Longfellow’s masterpiece, “The Masque of Pandora,” in which Pandora’s sins were realistically portrayed. Ask Mr. Petersen, too, about our ('hristmas party. As Sophomores, we certainly help out in singing and orchestra work. Why, they say they couldn’t do without us! Well, as a matter of fact, who could do without us? We are so closely woven about Miss Fiegenbauni’s heart that she says she cannot part from us. Mr. llarnett, upon hearing of our wonderful class, decided he would teach us Mathematics, and Mr. Sayre gave us up with much regret. Now, proud though we are of our class, we will admit that there are some fish among us. For instance, there are a number of flounders, who never know just when they will be caught without the goods. There are the bass, who are heard only in the music class. The crabs are usually found grumbling about the dues they must pay, whether athletic or class. The crappy are the "backsliders," who have slipped into the class. Then, too. there is always a number of “cats” at our class meetings. There is an immense crowd of angel fish, and a few.—must I admit it?—devil-fish. Hut, all in all. from the statistics of the other classes I find that the Sophomores rank first with, approximately, 99.99 per cent. Early in the fall we elected as our President, Louis May; as Vice- President, Alev Whitson; and as Secretary, I la Oliver. Of course, a few of our class have left us to take up the duties of life, while some have sacrificed their membership in 1918 and remained to give aid to the goslings. During the remaining years we hope to climb to the top of the K.H.S. ladder, and in a short time the four bright years at Edwardsville High will be ended. So. hats off to the class of 1918 and to its banner of blue and gold!

A Freshman on coming into the High School is continually looking for some one to grab him. He has a hard time preventing his feet from becoming entangled, and lie blushes to the roots of his hair whenever spoken to by a member of the faculty. He stands at the board with his feet propped out in front of him until suddenly he finds himself sprawled out upon the floor. He arises, brushes some imaginary dust from his clothes, and makes a miserable attempt to smile, while the rest of the school roar with merriment. He talks on the steps going down at noon and takes two steps at a time coming up, and on both occasions blushes beautifully when corrected. He makes a break in English and becomes very excited. This is usually accompanied by another attempt to smile. He is made a fool of before the school by some other boy. Then the ‘“preps” come up, and lie feels as if he had seen four years of High School instead of four months, and he laughs at the “preps” contemptuously. 31The Freshmen Although we’re little Freshmen, We’re the greatest class in school, We may. t is true, have some poor grades,— But “Exceptions prove the rule.” We're greatest in our numbers Of any Freshman class That’s ever entered through the doors Of dear old E.ll.S. We’ve come from all the county,— The North. South. East and West,— The graded schools of many towns Send their products to E.ll.S. We Freshmen, by the Seniors Are duhhed “as green as grass,” But those words have little weight with us,— From that old moss-back class; And by the time we’re Seniors, Our brilliancy of mind Will show to you, true greatness is Toward Freshmen to he kind. For high and mighty Seniors Ought not to rub it in On Freshmen who have shown they have Enough nerve “to begin.” With intellect. “j ep,” talent. And pluck, it is forseen We'll show to you SOME Seniors In the year,—“Nineteen-nineteen.” —Lois Bice. 32Freshman Class Roll Viola Alsop Christine Ballweg Edwin Barnett Gladys Harraelougli Harlan Bartlett Edward Bell remit George Berlenian Oliver Bishop Mildred Brockmeier Ansel Brown Helen Brown Ambrosia Burns Davis Canis Kutli Church Ferdinand Deitz Marie Dippold Caroline Eismann Dal iso Erspamer Nora Fagan Knth Fangenrotli Doris Fehu James Flavin George Funk Maude (tiger Leo Grebel Winifred Gneltig Frank Gusewelle Edward Halley Clarence Heinrich Della Henry Edna Hess Thomas Hlad Mary Hueter Arthur Jones James Kane Simon Kellerman Herbert Koch Gertrude Kramer Carl Ktricka Ernest Kuehl Homer Lapp Mabel Lawder Catherine Long Dorothy Longwish Edward Lynch (iertrnde McLean Oliver McNeillv Alfred Morefield Edna Motz Fan line Muencli Clemens Nitsche Jessie Noll Fred Ostendorf Mildred Owen Benjamin Wood Alberta Wood Louis Perini Wilbur Pfeiffer Minnie Prang John Heid Martin Reiser Lois Rice Esther Roffman Ethel Ryder Walter Sell wager Genevieve Semon Wilbur Sender Kenneth Shaw Esther Shupack Paul Sido Enoeh Skalandzunos Louise Snider Bussell Southard Jerome Stieren Rudolph Stolte Mary Tesar Florian Trares James Waters Joyce Weber Harold West Arthur Westerholt Binuey Williamson 33The School Year 191516 li.is brought its changes to E.H.S.; some unusual things have happened to us, and we feel that this record of our deeds and achievements would not be complete without a retrospect,—to learn what the school year lias meant to us. All in all, that there has lieen an improvement is certain; that this has been a banner year will lie agreed by all. All attendance records of the past have been exceeded by this year's enrollment of 223, an enrollment which is the largest per thousand inhabitants of any city in the county. Both in the fall and midyear promotions. all of the eighth grade graduates, with but one or two exceptions, entered the High School, while during the year our loss from dropping out has been remarkably small. We have in attendance about fifty tuition pupils, from Glen Carbon, New Douglas, Alhambra, Worden, and other neighboring towns, and these have formed an active branch of the student body. The graduating class will include some twenty-eight pupils, two of whom completed their work in January. There have been some changes in the faculty. The High School this year has been under the able leadership of Mr. It. C. Sayre, who has done much to raise its standards in every respect. Miss Florence Hall began her work in the Domestic Science department in September, and Mr. C. B. Barnett, who entered at the beginning of the new semester in February, has charge of Mathematics. By adding another teacher to the faculty, it has been possible to further systematize the work into different departments, so that each branch is under the direction of one or more instructors. The curriculum has been arranged into various courses and the student is now offered a choice of classical, mathematical and scientific studies. Chemistry has l een added to the regular course of study and a well equipped chemical laboratory has proven one of the most interesting features of the school. The physics laboratory is also well furnished with the four up-to-date experiment tables which have recently l»een added. The literary work has been voluntary rather than compulsory this year and has taken the form of a class in Public Speaking, oj en to upper classmen. Three hours a week of music, under the direction of Miss Belle Krome, has put this subject on a credit basis, affording one-half credit a year. It is now considered a permanent branch of the curriculum, and several excellent concerts have proved that the department deserves to be so regarded. The social life of the school has been encouraged by club and class gatherings. Several plays given throughout the year have not only testified to the histrionic talent of the students, but have solicited the interest of the townspeople. As a whole, the year has l een one of much earnest work, of many pleasures, and of helpful co-operation throughout the entire school. The honors of the class of 1916 have l een awarded as follows, on the basis of the average grades for the four years’ work:— Valedictorian—Amy Love. Saint at orian—Elsie Kuehl. Third Honors—Hilda Tuxhorn. In the lower classes the following pupils have attained the highest grades for the current year:— Juniors—1st., Hnlda Prang; 2nd., Henry Delicate; 3rd.. John Johnson. Sophomores—1st., Rose Bollinger; 2nd., A ley Whitson; 3rd., Edith Mark Freshmen—1st., Minnie Prang: 2nd.. Edwin Stokes; 3rd., Edna Motz. 34The Social Year (§' tOCIETY life in High School began last fall with a marshmallow roast 5' celebrating our football victory over Litchfield. Some of the Litchfield players remained for the affair, and it certainly was a hilarious one. After the marshmallow roast we all trooped over to the picture show. It sounds very extravagant but the tickets for this were given to us with our fooball tickets by Mr. Petersen. A corner of tin theatre was reserved for us, and the attention of the audience was divided between the pictures and our yell, songs and other antics. We all enjoyed the “party” immensely and longed for another football victory soon. kN THE evening of December 9th, the first meeting of the new organization, the German dub, was held. This club was organized for educational and intellectual purposes, and fulfills its mission we I. since its programs are rendered in German and are very entertaining. The initiation of new membei’s was the main event of the evening and was hugely enjoyed by the audience. Strange to say, the initiated survived. The entertainment committee outshone itself, and everyone was made to feel perfectly at ease, which is not always the case at first meetings. The evening ended with the “Grand March,” and it was indeed a suitable ending for a “grand time.” zgv AN anything more inconsistent be imagined than for thirty “hobos” to J, give a banquet? Such, however, was the case in E.H.S., and strange as it may seem the banquet was beyond doubt the event of the season. Do not be alarmed, dear friends, the Royal Order of Hobos are really respectable High School hoys, and these boys elected to entertain their chosen girl friends and the faculty. The banquet was held on Decern her 18th. and was decidedly an elaborate one. The tables, each with places set for six people, were decorated with High School colors and above each tine hung a light with an orange shade. Four courses were served and the boys’ reputations as chefs was firmly established, for they claimed the credit of cooking the good things themselves. After the banquet, the guests were allowed to do absolutely as they pleased and we all had a thoroughly good time. When we left all vowed that never again would a “hobo” be turned from our doors. 3T HAPPENED in .January,—that memorable sleigh ride, in which Mr. Barnett, our new High School teacher, made his “debut” into High School society. Owing to the reticence of the girls, we have never lieen abb to discover much about this party, for, of course, boys never tell anything. However we do know that they ate supjier at a farm-house, and that the farmer’s wife was a very good cook. Outside of this we have learned but few details, except that Mr. Barnett was duly lionized, and this of course is the one thing necessary to insure the success of a debutant. ‘JC VERYONE is aware of the significance of Leap Year, and a few of the girls in High School determined that the year would not go by without their doing something to celebrate it. So they asked a few of the boys—not for their hearts and hands, dear readers!—mercy, no!—but simply if they might escort them to a basketball game. The boys accepted, 35—with alacrity, of course,—and after the game they were all invited to go to the “Palace of Sweets,” which invitation was also accepted with the selfsame alacrity. Its too bad. hoys, that every year is not a Leap Year! •THE faculty, at the end of the football season, entertained the boys at a banquet in the Gymnasium,—whether as a reward or a consolation, deponent sayeth not. The meal was served by the members of the High School Cooking Class, and they do say it was a splendid advertisement of the ability of both the girls and their instructor. After the eats, the annual football election was held, resulting in the selection of Louis May as Captain, and Simon Ivellermann as Manager. Then followed toasts and impromptu talks by practically all the members of the team and faculty, Mr. Sayre serving as toastmaster. The event was an exclusive one. for the football team only, but the boys say the rest of us missed a mighty good time. y 15AH after year, our old and esteemed friend. “Silas Mainer." is read, IfJ studied and admired by the Junior Class. And nearly every Junior class is inspired with the desire of showing their appreciation and understanding of this masterpiece, by producing it on the stage. For several years this ambition has not been realized, but on April 4th, the class of 11117 put on a dramatic version of this novel that was easily the best that the High School has ever produced. About twenty-five of the class took parts in the play, and displayed histrionic ability that had never been guessed before. Particular mention is due James Allen in the title role, Henry Delicate as Godfrey Cass, John Johnson as Mr. Macey and Squire ('ass. and Edna Boeker as Eppie; while little Harold Sparks and Lois Sayre, drafted from the classes of 1930 and 1932 respectively, were distinct hits in their important parts. Hazel Logan, in the prologue, was charming, and the dignity and impressiveness of her delivery captivated the audience. The class was assisted in their program by the ever welcome orchestra, who are improving at every appearance. Miss Fiegenbaum, who was in charge of the affair, deserves much credit for the success of the production. A large audience was present and materially increased the exchequer of the Junior class. DIE DECTSCHE GESELLSCHAFT The German Club was organized at the beginning of the school year for the twofold purpose of acquainting the members with the German lan guage, and of promoting the social life of tin students of E.ll.S. It has met and, in many respects, exceeded all expectations. The club consists of the forty-nine members of the two German classes, and of a number of other High School pupils, admitted by vote of the entire club. The meetings are held once a month, at which time short programs, consisting of German songs, recitations, readings, dialogues, or papers on various phases of German life, original stories, etc., are rendered, followed by games and refreshments. On the evenings of these meetings a throng of non-memhers surround the school and eagerly wait for some one to slip them the pass-word,—or something to eat. The latter hope is sometimes realized, the former never. The charter members who must leave its ranks at the end of the school year, hope and believe that Die Deutsche Gesellschaft, with its ultimate aim of profit and pleasure, is the forerunner of a permanent organization to E.ll.S. 36The Hmjh School Choris E.H.S. is justly proud of the work in music done during the year 11)15-16, the first year of its introduction as a formal subject in the course. The mixed chorus of about sixty voices appeared twice in concerts during the year and their work was distinctly complimentary to their instructor. The orchestra is an older organization, and has an established place among the High School activities. Each year marks an increase in its number and efficiency, and it is hard to imagine how we could get along without it. Another new venture growing out of the music course was the Male Quartette, which has been enthusiastically received by the school. The quartette comprises Carl Latowsky, John Johnson, Henry Delicate, and Ivan Hays. Mr. Petersen, assisted in its organization, while Miss Belle Krome, the instructor in music, is in direct charge of all these organizations, and they are ample testimony of her success in this line of work.

Co.ilniv HIGHLAND tl.S1915 Foot Ball Season You ask the question, “Was the 11)15 Football season a success?’’ The answer comes back increased a hundred fold,—“It was!” That which we have longed and hoped for favored us this year,—an Alton defeat. The smoke of battle bung low over the campus at Leclaire on that fair fall day in November; when it cleared, and we could see that the team had won. then the lhlo Football season became a success. The season opened the second Saturday in September when Litchfield High came to Edwardsville. We won our game Hi to 0, but not before Captain-elect May suffered injuries that kept him warming the sideline for some weeks to come. The following Saturday East St. Louis won from us 7 to i in one of the best fought games of the season. Kirkwood High, St. Louis, with their well balanced team lost a 11 to 13 game to us the following week. Next came our second game with Litchfield High. Litchfield showed a great improvement over their first game with us. Our team scored a touchdown in the last minute of play, the only score of the day. Then Alton came. We have been feeding that Alton “jinx” for some dozen years or so. Early Saturday morning on the day of the game, Captain Sager, Hud Wieneke and Red Weber could be seen leading the “jinx" in the direction of Wolfs pond. The stones must not have been heavy enough for just as the whistle blew for the “kick-off,” we all heard Koch shout 39( I) ht Loner Ro ir—(’a | t. Sager, I rch vardt, Long, Funk. Wien eke, Teasdale, Rote—Weber, Klin gel, Nantkes, Coach Keid, Kellennan, Westhoft . 1 aeeli. Kyan, Johnson, Brown, May, Koch,that the “jinx” was back. Koch was not mistaken for weren’t we penalized fifteen yards twice after we had pushed the ball over for a touchdown? The third time, however, they counted it, and then the half ended. During the intermission the team with the help of many of the spectators chased the “jinx” all over Leclaire, hut were unable to catch him. We then decided to disregard the “jinx” altogether. During the second half lie was very much in evidence, hut the last quarter he left for a few minutes, enough time, so that we won our game, 14 to 7. Doesn't it seem good to heat the “jinx?” After the Alton game we played East St. Louis. Staunton, and Blackburn College, losing these games after hard fought battles. The 1915 team is one of the best that the school has had in years. Captain Sager, Weber, Wieneke, Long and Reed have played their last game for E.H.S.. These Seniors will he missed when the call is sent forth next fall. The following players played in one or more games: Ends—Captain Sager, Wieneke, Nantkes. Koch. Tackles—Captain-Elect May, Klingle, Ryan, Johnson. Reed. Guards—Lanham, Funk. Koch. Centers—Kellerman, May. Quartera—Teasdale, Brown. Halves—Weber, Sager, Teasdale, Long. Full Backs—Borchwardt, Reed. Basket Ball. The Basketball season for this year was, in many resj ects, a successful one. Not startlingly, glaringly, pyrotechnically successful—but moderately and conservatively so. At least, our boys won half of the games played, which, as everyone knows, is more than has l een accomplished in some years. Our defeats were inflicted only by some of the best teams in this part of the country. Among these was Nashville, who bested us by only four points; Collinsville, too, one of the best teams in Southern Illinois, won a hard-fought game with a much larger and heavier team; while Granite City, the winner of the Centralia tournament, won out by virtue of a little more luck and considerably more “pep” than our boys displayed. The remaining defeats were at the hands of teams of less reputation. All the games, however, were interesting and entrtaining, and on the whole were well attended. The season’s work testified most clearly that we really had a team and that they could put up a splendid game under favorable conditions. Sickness and quarantine at the most important part of the season undoubtedly handicapped the boys, and considering these obstacles, the team’s showing was not at all discreditable. In point of speed they were unquestionably the fastest team that ever represented E.H.S, Now in order to see just who composed “our team” and their respective positions, we must close our eyes and imagine ourselves in the “Gym.” Over there in one comer are two husky fellows darting back and forth: at second glance we know them to be Sager and Brown, our two star guards. These two men, together with Wood,—who took Brown’s place very creditably, after the latter’s departure to California,—were our pillars of defense. Fur- 41Brown Allen Sager Wood M. Teasdale N. Teasdale Tetherington Wien eke Love 42flier down flu field, in fhe center, we see a certain fall, lanky youth of light complexion. Who can it he but Tetherington? “Ted” was not only able to out jump most id' his opponents, but was certainly a “bear” at shooting baskets. Still further down the line are seen our two forwards, Allen on the right, with Teasdale on the left. “Jim” was our best “shot” and at all times could be relied upon, while “Brab,” when it came to a hard running game, was hard to beat. The game changes, and now we see Schwartz and Wieneke at forward. “Lennie,” unfortunately, on account of many “business" engagements, had to leave the team, and because of his steady work, lie was sorely missed; “Hawk,” with his great height, came in handy during many tight pinches. Honorable mention must also be given to "Mart” Teasdale and “Hill" Love, both members of the second squad, who held down the positions of sub-forward and sub-guard, respectively, on the Varsity. Their consistent efforts give us rising hopes that E.II.S. will he well represented next year when it comes to playing real Basketball. In conclusion, 1 am sure that all of us who have seen the various games will say that all the victories won and the defeats suffered, were accepted by a team of good sports, and that the outcome of the games were the results of their best efforts. Shakespeare Tercentenary “All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.” How the truth of this is brought home by the celebration of 1!)16, the Tercentenary of the death of Shakespeare, the author of these famous lines. We cannot but believe that even the warring nations abroad will sheathe their swords, if only for a moment, to pay tribute to the mighty j en of the master poet-dramatist. The members of the Senior class deem themselves fortunate to be graduating in a year made famous by so great a man, and have realized their opportunity to place at his shrine the best they have in them, in the production of his most popular and representative play, the Merchant of Venice. However, they have not been selfish with their privilege, but have invited the Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grades to contribute to the program some dances characteristic of his plays, its the Jesters’ Dance, Dance of Helen, and songs, such as Shakes] eare himself might have danced and sung. It is hoped the program may be ready by the last of April, the month of Shakespeare’s birth and death, and that the production may merit, in part, the ambition of the class and their true adoration of the Bard of Avon. 43Marathon Camp The Marathon and Olympian Camps As in one or two years past, the girls’ work in Basketball has lteen accomplished this season by means of two rival organizations, the Marathon and the Olympian Camps, of the former of which Miss Davis is in charge, while Miss Hiles directs the destinies of the latter. In all about fifty girls are enrolled, and the rivalry between the two clans, while always good-natured and friendly, sometimes becomes quite keen. On the 1015-1G showing, the Marathons must perhaps be conceded the championship, as they have won both of the match games played between the camps. Olympian Camp '44pic v 1: ■■ The Spring Tournament Without question the most notable athletic event of the school year occurred late in March. Coach Westhoff announced the unique idea of holding an Inter-Class Basketball and Track Tournament. The significance of the tournament was two-fold: First,—it afforded a formal closing of the season for the Edwardsville High Basket—eers, and heralded the advent of another season of track work. Secondly, and of far greater import,—the meet furnished the desired result by giving the coach the opportunity of seeing most of the boys in action, and thereby bringing to light the available track material. A few seers from the Senior ranks.—the more modern term is "dopesters,” —predicted nothing but an easy time for themselves, and by thus grabbing the honors they believed they would bestow lasting fame upon the fair name of “Seniors, 1!)16” now, before their class should be enrolled in the ranks of the alumni. But the Juniors, after winning class supremacy in basketball, came back and secured the most points in the track division also, thereby annexing the grand championship of classes. Martin Teasdale, of the Sophomores, was individual winner of the cross-country run, four miles run in the remarkably fast time of 25 minutes and 12 seconds. At an impressive service held on the morning of April 5th, Coach Westhoff, the donor, presented the Juniors with a beautiful loving cup in recognition of their victory, and awarded Martin Teasdale a cup of similar design as a trophy. The class cup is to remain permanently in the High School. While at times during the tournament, the air was surcharged, so to speak, with class loyalty, that greater spirit of E.H.S., which binds us into a single unit of loyalty, was made more evident than ever. With louder voices still we sing, “You'll find us willing and ready, and firm and steady, boosting for our Old High.” 45Red,and his flunky Wfiatcha see ? See this Harland. 1 See Harlands Bull. .

For instance there’s a Senior,— Who is it? Can you guess?— Who strives for just a passing grade,— Wants neither more nor less; If he gets a final 80, He thinks himself disgraced,— He deems that extra five percent. A shameful, needless waste! A certain pompous Junior has This idea of efficiency,— To be a regular ladies’ man,— To cultivate proficiency In small talk with the High School girls,— He thinks himself right in it If he makes a hit with a Freshman lass,— Now, isn’t he the limit? Then there’s a Sophomore lassie, You know as well as I,— If she blows in before roll-call. The whole school wonders why; If she comes two minutes early, She’s sore enough to weep At the precious time she wasted That she might have spent in sleep. A Freshman girlie, also, Has her own interpretation Of Efficiency. She thinks it means Incessant conversation. ’Tis said her friends, in self defense, Tried one time to reform her,— And to get a moment’s silence, They had to chloroform her! The teachers, too, to lie efficient, Think it’s their duty,—bless ’em, To ferret out our little faults, Or else make us confess ’em. They say that we’ve no time to waste,— They even go so far As to infer we’re here to work,— Say, what do they think we are! 47J I hope- Twr OLP MAN Jwr 5£C ML VOkV OA ft I.

You thought we’d left him out.That Faculty Game The Collinsville Team was booked for a game,— (A regular, annual thing) And the second team also were to come for the same, (No very unusual thing;) But the coach of our team took our breath quite away, When he announced to the High School assembled one day, That the faculties, also, of the two schools would play, (Such a novel and unheard-of thing!) We hardly could wait for the day to arrive,— (For this new and original thing,—) When our teachers should meet the Collinsville five, (A really remarkable thing!) Speculation ran wild as to results of the clash, Some pupils, inclined to be sports, were so rash As to venture to say that we’d beat them to smash,— (A wildly improbable thing!). On the evening eventful the Gym was well packed, (A financially acceptable thing,—) The elite of the city in the bleachers were stacked, (For us an entirely new thing!) The two teams appeared in all sorts of disguises,— A varied assortment of shapes, suits and sizes,— A five fit to contend for State Tournament prizes,— (A purely ironical thing!). 1 dread to go on with this pitiful story, (A sad, really heart-rending thing!) The game was so vicious, so brutal, so gory! (So unexpectedly sanguine a thing!) Mr. Petersen ran into our new man, Barnett, The Gym fairly shook with the shock as they met,— (They say Mr. Petersen’s teeth are loose yet,'— What a rude and undignified thing!). A Collinsville forward had his knee badly bent. (A quite unintentional thing;) A hurry-up call for a surgeon was sent, (He was waiting outside for this thing;) Time was called ’till the Doctor had patched up the men, They began the mad slaughter still more viciously then, They paused only to drag out the wounded again, (A frequent recurring thing). But what need is there further to prolong the sad tale? (A thankless, unwelcome thing;) In doing it justice we find words utterly fail. (A really impossible thing;) Suffice it to say that in their mad thirst for gore, Our athletic teachers failed to take time to score, As the last whistle blew, the enemy’d one basket more! (A quite inexcusable thing!). MORAL In arranging the schedule for next season’s team, (A prudent, fore-sighted thing,) ’Twould be best to play “Safety First,” it would seem, (A really sensible thing;) Faculty games are attractive to pupils, no doubt, But in planning such things, we must first look about For a new bunch of “Profs,” if ours are wiped out! (A really calamitous thing!) 54ANOTHER FORD STORY Mr. Ford, who had been suffering from rheumatism, limited into a fourth grade room one day last December to boost the Christmas sale of Red Cross Seals. “Now, children,” he said, "Who can tell me what use is made of the money paid for these seals?” Several hands went up. ‘•You tell us. Hobby,” said Mr. F„ and Hobby, full of importance at being chosen, replied, “They—they,—they give it to folks who are sick with,—er— with rheumatism.” SOMEWHAT NARROW Emma Tuxhorn was discovered on the day of the Football banquet, in the Gymnasium, attempting to measure some tables with a yard stick. "What are you doing, Emma,” asked Mr. W. Emma: “Miss Fiegenbanm sent we down to measure the tables, to see if there’s enough room for the boys tonight.” Mr. W: “How much space do you need?” Emma: "Well, she said she thought we ought to allow at least nine inches for each bov.” THE SORREL-TOP-CLUB A select and exclusive organization, in which hair-red-ity is the sole qua!

Editor Daily Dope: We are supposed to be living in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Why is it that our rights are curtailed so in school. I was speaking to Esther R. the other day, and while doing so, was interrupted bv Mr. Sayre, who tells me that talking during study hours is not allowed. Must we stand for this? R. Southland. ALL CONFIDENCE TEAM PICKED. Editors Daily Dope Gives Final Choice. After a careful study of the work of all the players of the basketball season just finished, the DAILY DOPE is at last ready to publish its own selection of the all- confidence team of 1915-6. We submit the following line-up: Center, Louis Perini. Guards, Reiser Williamson. Forwards, Hlad, Waters. Substitutes, Lapp , Weber. Reiser never saw a game before this year, but he is probably better than any of the team. Weber was at the Collinville game and kept his head, while all the regular players were losing theirs. BEAUTY NOTES Conducted By Esther Roffman. (Miss Roffman has had such experience along this line and would be pleased to answer any quetions.)

By a Disgruntled Observer. We are the Edwardsville High School, we’ve a hundred boys and more; we have a right to think we might win games and meets galore; to cultivate our High School "pep” we try year after year,—a winning team is our constant dream,—but there’s something wrong I fear. We are the Edwardsville High School,—kindly watch our score: tirst thing you know,—it’s always so,— we’ll lose a few points more; we really ought to beat them.—we could if we’d half try,—but it’s just the same in every game,—we lose.— now tell me why? We are the Edwardsville High School, of athletes we’ve enough, lml what we lack on field and track is more of “that fighting stuff;” it happens every season, the cause each year’s the same,—we always seem to have a team, but they don’t get into the game. It isn’t lack of school support,— that used to be the plea,—it would appear the crowds this year are all that they should be; the boys are’nt keen enough to win,—their attitude implies that, win or lose, there's little to choose, just so they get their exercise. Do they really think they joined the squad for the school’s accommodation? Do they think that we should bend our knee in thankful adoration? What we want’s a team that mints to win,—a team that will possess the will to try,— to do or die, for the sake of E.H.S.; we want players who think to the High School team it’s a privilege to belong,— men with the grit not to quit when things are going wrong. So let’s make our resolutions now for next year’s athletic stunts; let’s plan and scheme to get a team,—a winning team for once; it isn’t because we’re weaklings,—we have brains and speed enough,— but what we need to add to that sjieed is more of that “FIGHTING STUFF.” Mr. Petersen (explaining electrical apparatus)—“All take hold of hands. Now, how many are shocked?” German Students, Attention! Eines Tages, when the day’s work was done, und die pupils waren in der Halle assembled, waiting eagerly fur der signal of dismissal, dann horte man suddenly der shrill sound of cine Alarni-Uhr. Simultaneously, alle Augen der Halle searched, und die laute voice of Herbert Koch ge-shouted hat:— "Was ist los?” In der Mitte der Halle discovered we ein Sayre (sehri emharassed Preside trying sein bestes to der sound muffle. “Bring das bier her!” Herr Sayre from der platform commanded. Unwillingly und mit ein sheepish grin upon sein face, der little Preside complied, und within the teacher’s hands the cause of all der trouble, die little Uhr, placed. "Was want you damit? Herr Sayre demanded. Mit grosse hestitancy, der Ivleine replied:— “To oversleep in der School I did not wish, alier ich hatte no idea it would so loudly ring.” 59Things We Dream But Never See o Leila Buckles, as a prima donna.

When you heal a hurt; when you evoke a smile from sadness; when you are true to yourself, you will be true to others; and this is, at least, building your own little world. Mental, moral and natural laws are alike—simple, undeviating. Nothing will come from a garden save that which is sown. We all know this, and we work with this natural law before us. And what is true in natural law, is equally true in a mental or moral sphere. Happiness is the kindliness that greets you on the way. To be in harmony with humanity, to be happy, is a great gift. It is not the gift of gold that makes one truly happy; gold has the taint of doubt. It is some small sincere bit of sentiment that starts the heart to beating the role of romance, of affection. Money is not the measure of sentiment! And I ask you. What gift will make a woman half as happy as a bouquet of flowers? When you send some sweet sentimental token, remember romance even weighs the ribbon. You cannot afford to speculate with sentiment; and without sentiment where would we find room for happiness? No man, no woman can be truly happy without sentiment, and sentiments are best expressed with flowers. A visit, or a telephone call to J. F. Ammann Co., at Edwardsville, 111., will send your sentiments on their errand of happiness, accompanied with the choicest of flowers. 72We are the largest firm in E 1 wardsville dealing in musical Instruments, Pianos, Piano Players, Edison Diamond Disks, Victrola’s, and Columbia Grafonolas, Records and Sheet Music.
