AND IN THE BEGINNING —
The Seniors of 1917, who have taken as their motto, “We can who think we can”, have published this fourth voluume of the “Tiger”. It is our utmost desire and sincere wish that this annual will help to promote a better school spirit and will afford a pleasant retrospection to its readers of the past year. May it recall in after years memories of the delightful associations among the teachers and students in dear old E. H. S. ’neath the Orange and the Black.

A Senior’s Today
Sure, this high school's full of trouble, I ain't said it ain’t;
Lord, I've had enough an' double Reason for complaint.
Exams and zeros came to fret me. Days were often gray;
Late hours and dances have beset me On the road, hut say,
Ain't it fine today?
It's today I'm thinkin' 'bout,
Xot a year ago;
English, German, Algebra,
Gee ! my marks were low ! Yesterday, a cloud fell o’er my grades,—
But today they’re all O. K.—
I he Faculty all say I’ll pass,—
Say, ain’t it fine today?

Page NineteenWho is responsible for the Senior Class of the Edwardsville High School? The Board of Education.
What is the Board of Education ? The Board of Education is a group of seven prominent citizens selected by ballot for their ability and interest in school work.
How does this Board make possible a Senior Class? By selecting a Faculty.
What is a Faculty? A Faculty is a group of more or less learned and dignified men and women into whose charge all pupils are consigned.
What are the duties of this Faculty? To weed out undesirable Freshmen and Sophomores, to make Juniors give cause why they should become Seniors, and to torment and pester Seniors throughout the last year of their course.
Of the High School, what is the most important feature? The Seniors, with the Faculty a close second.
Who are the Seniors? The most desirable of all those who entered as Freshmen, the fittest who have survived.
Are the Seniors as important individually as they are en masse? We believe
What cause is there for this belief ? The prospective careers of the members.
What careers beckon these members onward ? The Home, Agriculture, Aviation, Law, Medicine, Dentistry, Stenography, and Teaching.
For whom does the Home appeal? To Hulda, Emma, Ora, Hazel and Geraldine.
On what is this appeal of the Home based ? For Hulda, on fitness; for Emma, on her domesticity ; for Ora, on the perfect liberty to talk at all times; for Hazel, on her desire for a protecting Wahl, and for Geraldine, because of her tender sympathies and culinary ability.
Whom does Agriculture seek to entangle and why ? Bill B., because he desires to be next to the source of supplies; Walter, because it is too much trouble to seek another occupation ; Milton, that he may cover as much ground as possible, and Aubrey, for noi reason on earth.
To whom does Aviation appeal? To Henry, as evinced in his debate with Milton; to Elizabeth, who is accustomed to high altitudes; and to John J., who is up in the air a large part of the time at present.
Page TwentyThe Law is the loadstone to what weary Seniors? To Eugene, that he may know how far he can go without incurring a penalty; to Edna D., that she may use her excellent voice and original inflections, and to Verlie, who has never broken one.
Whom does sympathy for human suffering move to Medicine? Many Seniors are so impelled. Jim Allen, of basketball fame, desires to be a surgeon as he was cpiite proficient in Manual Training in early life; Oliver has a similar desire of recent days, since he has become such a cunning cut-up; Helen and Olga desire to become physicians, that on summer nights on moonlit roads, they may gaze unh’ndered at the limitless expanse of skv.
Are not La Verne, Edwin, Margaret, and Nora well fitted for the profession of Dentistry? Yes, indeed; the first three are often down in the mouth, while Nora has a natural flow of laughing gas.
Some eight Seniors are yet unaccounted for? Yes; Edna B., Irma B., Irene L., and Edna S., expect to wring their future from the typewriter. To Edna B. such labor appeals as it will enable her to preserve the chance remarks of her favorite instructor; to Irene, that she, in good taste, may make a sound while expressing her thoughts; to Irma, because her papa wants her to. and to Edna S., that she in two ways may simultaneously express her thoughts.
Are no other futures to be pursued by this fair class? Yes; four seek fame by teaching. Louise desires to, in this way, preserve to the world a perfect pupil; Myrtle seeks thus to imbibe some spirit of youth; Arthur feels that his well-combed locks should be kept before the young as a model, and Oscar has hardly decided. Reasons, Oscar? “Aw, why not be a teacher. It’s a graft. I never saw one work.’’ But we surmise that to one who is so faithful with his (billiard) cue, the stage must surely have some claim.
Does this in full constitute the Class of 1917? At present, it does. Some others formerly belonged, but lack of grit, brains, or unfavorable circumstances caused them to fall by the way. The thirty-one constitute in full the Senior dignity. Another class must succeed in time, but with less experience and less learning. For many long months will the High School suffer, until in time this new class rises and becomes fit subjects to pass out into the world and do honor to E. H. S.
Page Ttvenly-oneForecasts and Foibles
A few character sketches and careful predictions concerning certain prominent members of the Class of 1917:
There’s the fellow that is president of the “mighty Senior” clan,
John Johnson,—a clever lad, of course,—he’s a New Douglas man!
John loves above all things to play,—on the cornet or otherwise,—
I believe he’ll go upon the stage,—be an actor, if he’s wise;
A traveling, one-night, 'drama show will be about his class;
He can slay the villain or souhrette. and double in the brass.
And then there's “Big Bill" Borchwardt, the giant among our boys,—
May his success in future life equal his avoidupois;
When he grows up to be a man, it is our sincere advice,
That he take up law for his lifework. Now wouldn't it be nice If he could get to be a Judge? There wouldn't be a trace Of trouble left in any suit, if "Bill" sat on the case!
Next consider "Blackie" Bollman,—dignified, austere!
At least, by contrast, lie’s seemed so in this, his Senior year,—
He has a great career in store; he started in quite young To cultivate suavity, and smoothness of the tongue.
A promoter he will likely be; he’ll have capital enough To start great enterprises, by his skillful use of "bluff!”
There’s another one, 'Gene Buhrman our Senior fashion plate;
We used to think him fickle, but he’s settled down of late!
From nine to four he spends his time in ardent contemplation Of the beauty of his neighbor(s) ; and his fluent conversation Produces such a crop of dates, that as a general rule.
He has no time for an "Idle Hour,"—at least not after school!
And “Jimmy," whom the boys call "Slats," so graceful, lank and tall;
We may have wider, wiser boys, but he o’ertops them all:
He's very fond of fishing, for fishing is an art That calls for little effort or exertion on his part.
He’ll probably enter politics ; he’d be successful at the polls,
And he ought to aim right high in life—he’s so used to making “goals!"
Class Colors: Blue and Gold.
Class Motto: “Nothing great is lightly won."
1918—A SHAKESPEAREAN CHRONICLE Friends, faculty, and fellow students, lend me your time,—
I come to give a record of our class,—and not to praise it.
Oh, School, at thy portals there did alight a young and great class,—
But that was long, long ago. As Freshmen we gave our thoughts no tongue Nor any unproportioned thought his act.
We did beware of entrance to a quarrel, but being in Bore it that the opposed were aware of us.
What found we here? Fair learning’s counterpart.
But soon the most unpleasant words that ever blotted paper Came, when we received our grades.
In the second year we stared into the clouds, and forgot
The base class from which we sprung. Now 'twas to do or not to do.
Some more we lost by the way ; but the rest went on and on and on.
But hear me,—in our third year we were not too rude Nor loud of voice, but grew wings and looked demurely.
We allowed ourselves such games which did befit gentlemen ;
And doubly redoubled strokes upon the foe So that he that escaped us without some broken limb Did acquit bimself well.
In dramatics, we spoke our speeches trippingly on the tongue and did suit the action to the word.
And now I must leave off. But I must needs tell all.—
That now we sleep, dreaming,—aye, dreaming, there's the rub,—
Of the time when we shall bravely shoulder our sheepskins And bid goodbye to school.

A SOPHOMORE’S ALPHABET
A Sophomore is a queer being;. He is one step higher up in the evolutionary scale than a Freshman. He defines things and events in the light of his own relation to them. The main point of difference between him and a Freshman is ‘lut he has lost all traces of shyness he had as a Freshman The world to him is a vast and complex organism. Yet he spells it with one letter, I. He works this one little love letter until he finds at the close of that all eventful year, it spells no more in the world at large than any other letter of the alphabet from which he appropriated it. And the Sophomore is ready to be an upper classman.
Page Twenty-ninePage ThirtyOur Class History—1919
One warm September day, two long years ago, our regiment of about eighty young soldiers changed their quarters from the first floor drill rooms to the exalted barracks of the High School. Here we were met by Gen. Sayre, who told us we were assembled for a battle against the forces led by Captain Hooks. Our young band was told who their leaders were, and were given programs which outlined the coming battles. This mighty warrior. Capt. Books, had built such strong fortifications that some armies could not defeat him, but others, with the help of good leaders, could, with some difficulty, overthrow him. The first half year, we fought hard against the enemy. Later, at times, the battle went against us, and we would almost give up in despair. At this time. General Sayre would send out announcement cards, proclaiming our defeat. This roused most of us; we rallied and fought with such zeal that by the end of the second half. Latin was conquered —and never heard of aga:n by some of us. During this year, the foes, English and Algebra also reared up battlements over which our band scrambled and the top was finally reached by most, while the others were still fighting in the second year. Then came the hot season and a flag of truce was raised, but after three months' parole, we were called upon again to show our strength.
This time we were met by Algebra, who had disguised Irmself in the f mil of Geometry. We have been fighting this foe for over six months already but we hope to have him conquered within a few weeks more. Xor is this our worst enemy, for to say nothing of our old opponent, English, there are some less active ones such as Cooking, Manual Training, and Music, besides our arch-foe. General History. The latter has kept up his war upon us for about one-half a year already and he carries a record of battles won and social, economic, and political successes that would frighten the bravest.
But even with all this, our band expects to survive and be ready to attack-new foes next year. And with experience gained by the two rigorous campaigns we have already fought, we have good reason to hope for easier conquests ;n the year to come and for a triumphant conclusion of our contest with the powerful Books and his allies. Edna Motz.

Page Thirty-threePage Thirty-fourVerses “1920
The class of 1920,
Bv the E. H. S. we swore,
That the great name of Freshman Should suffer wrong no more.
By the E H. S. we swore it,
And to make good our claim,
We planned a series of great deeds To glorify our name.
From many distant places,
Our members here assembled,
From East and West, and North and South,
While other classes trembled.
We started with Athletics,
But our football line was weakened, When Bob and John, two brilliant stars,
To the Tiger’s line were beckoned.
We next took up the basket As a target for our ball,
But though our hopes were set quite high.
“Pride went before a fall.”
Then came the dreaded mid-year tests,
And while in some we failed,
Our work and study through the year, Eventually prevailed.
The Freshman-Sophomore debate, Sbines on our path to glory,
A victory gained by much research— And Samuel’s oratory.
In politics we argued,
With most divergent views,
And cast our straw vote fervently, For Wilson or for Hughes.
Our class room work is brilliant,
In fact it must be so,
Our hair and dispositions,
Shed light where’er we go.
So taking all together.
We’ve evidence in plenty,
To show that we are proud to be. The Class of 1920.
A FRESHMAN’S LAMENT
Miss Hiles is my teacher: I shall not pass. She maketh me to writes themes and exposeth my ignorance before the whole class. She restoreth my sorrow: she causeth me to give speeches for my grade’s sake, ea, though I study until midnight, I shall gain no credit, for her class Ixxik sorely troubles me. She pre-pareth an exam of great length for me: she gives me a poor grade; my sorrow runneth over. Surely distress and sadness shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall remain a member of the Freslnnan Class forever.
Page Thirty-fiveThe School Year
In assuming' the responsibility of this book, it lias been our aim to make it a full and wholesome representation of all phases of work and life in the Edwards-ville High School. This we have endeavored to do in such a way as to interest the students, the Alumni, and friends of the school, and, through the following record of the clos ng school year, we desire to show that our advancement has been most gratifying.
I he enrollment of 1916-17 has reached two hundred and fifty-eight, thirty-five more than last year; and the percentage of attendance for the nine months lias averaged ninety-eight. Of the two hundred fifty-eight students, fiftv-nine have been sent to us by twenty-three surrounding districts. 11-is a matter of interest and encouragement to notice that all of last year's pupils returned with the exception of thirteen and that six of these entered other schools. During the vear the number dropped from our roll has been remarkably small, wlrle everv member of the eighth grade classes but two entered high school. The graduating class will, we hope, consist of thirty-one. a membership larger than that of am-preceding class.
I be personnel of the faculty has been greatly changed this year. Mr. M. G. Norris took the place of Mr. Westhoflf. as teacher in Manual Training and Director of Athletics; Miss Nell Fairbanks has charge of all History classes; Miss Lois Detwiler of German and Lat-'n : Miss Dorothy Caldwell of Mathematics. By the addition of one instructor, Mr. P. T. ickory, at the beginning of the second semester, it was possible to supplement the course in Physiology, with needed laboratory periods.
A thoroughly practical course in Typewriting and Shorthand has been established under the efficient direction of M;ss Grace Davis. This called for the addition of six typewriters and other equipment, but the interest of the students in this department has proven the wisdom of the provision. A course in Business English has also been offered this year for the first time.
I be special interests and talents of the pup'ls have found expression in a variety of supplementary organizations. The Commercial and German Clubs, in connection with these departments, have been very beneficial in both an instructive and social way. The Pierian and Pythian Literary Societies have met every two weeks, and, because the work has been entirely voluntary, they have been attended with much enthusiasm. The efficient work of the music director. Miss Belle Krome, has been proven by able demonstrations of chorus and orchestra music; especially by the orchestra concert given in the fall. The boys’ quartette, with the help of Sir. Peterson, has been very successful and highly appreciated. Moreover, our athletic record—especially in basketball—shows that for this branch, 1916-17 is the banner year of the High School.
The Senior honors, based on their four years' work, are as follows:
Valedictorian, Hulda Prange; Salutatorian. Henry Delicate. Third Honors. John Johnson.
In the lower classes the following pupils have attained the highest grades for
Juniors—First. I la Oliver; second. Rose Bollinger: tlrrd, Alev Whitson.
Sophomores—First. Minnie Prange: second, Doris Fehn; third, Gertrude Kramer and Gertrude McLean.
Freshmen—First, Bruce Tuxhorn; second, Lee Little: third, Els;e Sloan, the current years:
Page Thirty-sixTHE GERMAN CLUB
Again we have with ns the German Club. Such a social success was not to be abandoned and the pupils had hardly become accustomed to the routine of school work when requests for a meeting began pouring in. The new German classes, who had only heard of the good t mes or perhaps enviously viewed them from without were, if possible, as anxious for a meeting as any of the old members. A meeting was called to elect officers for the year and to arrange for regular organization. Oscar Schmidt was elected President; Hulcla Prange. Secre-tarv and Treasurer, and committees were appointed.
The days following were days of joyous anticipation and trembling fear for the Junior German students, for many dark hints of the terrors of in tiatlon began floating about. The more timid ones almost decided to forego all pleasures rather than face the awful ordeal. Rut on the eventful night they were all prepared for the worst and it is reported that they all survived. The programs at this and the succeeding meetings have been almost entirely in German and have bten made more interesting by a series of dialogues depicting the life and customs of the German people.
THE JUNIOR COMMERCIAL CLUB
Oliver Stierren............President Ora Smith...............Treasurer
Maurice Fahnestock. . Vice-President Axel Anderson............Secretary
This is an entirely new organization for the Edwardsville High School. But its novelty is no hindrance to its popularity for though but recently inaugurated, it is full fledged and already in good working order. It should prove a useful society to the school for it has started with a very worthy purpose. As its name
Page Thirty-sevensignifies, it has been organized to create a greater interest in the commercial subjects, to foster an interest in the commercial life of the city and to bring about a closer relation between the High School and the community. Its highest aim, perhaps, is to aid worthy H. S. graduates of the commercial departments to obtain positions on leaving High School.
Of the seventy-seven charter members, three are of the Alumni, since former commercial pupils now working are also eligible for membership. Entertainment, membership and publicity committees are appointed for the year and meetings are held once a month. The main feature of the program is always a talk by some prominent business man of the city and afttr the program, the members are entertained by the hosts and hostesses of the evening, who are appointed by the entertainment committee.
THE LITERARY SOCIETIES
Again the shining lights of Edwardsville I Iigh School have a chance to throw their bright rays far and wide and need no longer hide them under a bushel for the ardent pleadings of our budding genius have resulted in the organization of two literary societies this year. ( hators may now orate, debaters may debate, and those who sing may warble to their hearts’ content. But more than that, if you are no shining light yourself, these literary societies will guarantee to make you one in the course of time. The service is not compulsory as in the societies of by-gone days, but anyone may join, regardless of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
The meetings are held during the seventh period and all members are excused from class work, unless they are too near the "Great Divide." an advantage that is by no means overlooked by the pupils. Why should it be? Who would not rather listen to the spirited debates and ringing orations of his fellow classmen than struggle with theorems and themes?
The societies, as stated, are two in number, ambitiously named the “Pierian" and the "Pythian," with destinies controlled by the following excellent staffs of officers: In the Pierian: John Johnson, President: Rose Bollinger, Vice-Presi-
dent, and Simon Kellermann, Secretary. And for the Pythian, Carl l.alowsky. Hazel Logan and Milton Wahl hold the same respective offices.
THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The Athletic Association is by far the largest of the organizations for everyone in High School is a member. You see it's a very good investment. The dues are only fifteen cents for the girls and a quarter for the boys, and then as members they get special prices on all tickets to the games. But the Association is not only beneficial to its members but to the school as well, for it is one of the means of paying the cost of athletics. Basketball is never much more than self-supporting, while football is quite an expensive luxury. Though the dues of the Association are not enough to pay all this, they are a very substantial aid. Beyond this the Association is not very active as an organization and there are no other obligations placed upon its members, but this year a little more than usual has been accomplished. The basketball boys were sadly in need of sweaters, so each member of the Association (to help to handsomely attire our boys) sacrificed one show. The Association really serves its purpose and helps keep alive the spirit so necessary in a school that is really worth while.
Page Thirty-eighlWe are daily coming to a fuller realization of the importance music plays in the world; a fact illustrated by its growth and popularity in school. It has appeared in E. H. S. in three forms: a (dee Club, an orchestra and a quartet.
The (dee Club, tbe school’s largest musical organization, was formed by Miss Krome. the musical instructor in 1915. The first year it was not accredited, but classed as a s:de issue, liven thus handicapped, it became a favorite study. More time was devoted to it last year and it was put on the list of accredited subjects. a fact which partly accounts for its increased popularity. Christmas night the club went about town singing carols before many homes. It has proved its right to a permanent place in the curriculum of E. II. S. and we entertain no doubts as to its future.
Tbe orchestra is a newer organization. Miss Krome gathered the talent of the school in its composition. The number and variety of instruments increase annually. Willingly and without remuneration, except universal gratitude, it has freely served E. li. S. at every bequest. Tbe orchestra assembles weekly for practice. A great and unprecedented achievement was a concert given at the Wildey Theatre this midwinter, which was well attended, and proved a notable success. The proceeds were added to the school fund and a timely gift of the Board of Education, and matured a long cherished plan: that of purchasing a much needed piano. The orchestra has proved an invaluable addition to E. H. S. organizations, and urell deserves the good wishes extended by all.
Tbe quartet was organized but two years ago by Miss Krome. Under her teaching and that of Mrs. Edith Tuxhorn, it has risen from the ranks of the amateur to a quartet which, we are confident, would gain recognition at any school contest. It has appeared publicly many times and this spring hopes to give a series of concerts. None will gainsay us when we say that we are immensely proud of you, our quartet.

When the 1916 football season opened, there were only three regulars left of the strong 1915 team; and although the enthusiasm and confidence of former years was nv'ssing, we hoped to build up a creditable football team. Under the able supervision of our new coach, Mr. Norris, the first few weeks were spent in whipping the light and wholly inexperienced candidates into shape for the gridiron. In their first game the team was defeated by the strong and well balanced Carlinville team. However, the team profited by their experience, for the next Saturday they played the Belleville team a scoreless t:e. I landicapped by injuries and by necessary absences, they lost their three remaining ‘ antes, cue to Staunton and two to Litchfield, although not without a liar,! struggle on their part. Taken as a whole, the season was enjoyed by the team and its loyal supporters, for Edwardsville showed her opponents that she was represented by a football team as clean and as sportsmanlike as of yore.
Ends—Halley, Lynch, Daecli.

The 1916-17 Basketball Team was the best one that has represented the High School in many years,—in the opinion of many, the best one that the school has ever turned out. At any rate it was certainly the fastest we have ever had, and although lighter in weight than most of the teams they met, the)' made up in speed what they lacked in pounds. In this one respect—speed—and in the smoothness of their teamwork, they did not meet their superiors during the season, and their record for the year was a tribute to the coaching they had received, and to the gameness of the men themselves. ()n the home lloor we did not lose a game, and while we were not so successful in our out of town contests, yet in nearly everv defeat we suffered the score was so close that the outcome was uncertain until the final whistle blew. The boys, moreover, showed themselves to be a clean, well-mannered, sportsmanlike bunch, with a fighf'ng spirit and an unwillingness to acknowledge defeat until the game was ended—a team of which the H. S. was justly proud. Their weak points, if there were any, were their lack of weight (always excepting "Big Bill," of course), and their occasional uncertainty in shooting goals.
Allen, the captain for the last two years, played a hard, consistent game at center. He is one of the fastest, most resourceful and intelligent players the school has ever developed. The team work centered largely upon him, and he seemed to have the faculty of always being in the open to receive a pass. Nantkes and Teasdale were excellent forwards—the former particularly valuable for his fighting game in the field, while the latter was probably the high score maker of the season. Wood and Daech formed the best combination at guard that we have ever had. Wood, playing running guard, was a sensation: despite Irs handicap in inches, he repeatedly made his tall opponents look foolish by his speed and tenacity; while Daech in his less spectacular position played an excellent and consistent game all season. Rorchwardt, Love, Williamson and Sayre were the substitutes, and were good enough to put into the game at any tune. Only the hard, consistent work of the first string men kept them on the bench as much as they were, but each of them had opportunity to break into the game and limelight on frequent occasions.
Allen, Wood and Rorchwardt graduate this year and their loss will he keenly felt. However, with the ones that are left and the promising material coming on, the prospects for next season are brighter than usual.
VARIOUS minor social events took place durng the first month of High School, but society proper started with the first meeting of the German Club. This club is in its second year of existence and will remain a permanent organization of the High School. A pleasing program was rendered by different members of the club; whereupon the old members adjourned to the gymnasium, anxious to participate in the initiation of the new members. The initiated experienced no pronounced discomforts, and to make them feel at home and possibly remove all signs of nervousness, splendid refreshments were served afterwards. Games furnished amusement for the remainder of the evening.
ENOTHER pleasant evening was spent at the Junior-Senior masquerade party, Nov. 1. Much speculation and interest was manifested the preceding few days as to what extent the masqueraders would bedeck themselves. At an affair like this everyone wants to wear something different from the othrr and when the evening arrived there were no costumes alike. Many thought they were able to penetrate the various disguises but they were mistaken, for several boys donned feminine apparel. After the prizes were awarded the eats were served,—different from the usual refreshments in that they consisted of pumpkin pie,—and you could ask for a second helping if you cared to.
Page Forty-sevenQOTHING sounds better to a High School boy, after a hard day's grind, than a pancake feed. Last November about twenty boys met in the Domestic Science room, mixed seven pans full of batter, appointed Mr. Peterson chief flipper, and then formed a hungry circle around the table, ready for business. The pancakes were so good that the flipper had to call several boys to his assistance in order to meet the demands of the hungry brood. With the disappearance of the last panful of hatter the boys seemed satisfied and even volunteered to help wash dishes. When all signs of the culinary invasion had disappeared the hoys lockstepped to the picture show.
XX EVERY school you find some young folks who enjoy "tripping their light fantastic toe" to the tinkle of a piano. This spirit is also present in our school and during the past year various dancing parties have been held at the Chapter House, an edifice especially adapted for such purposes.
V 1 ,HE physics tables were not made for the sole purpose of threshing out M t the resistance of a copper coil. Far from it. Arrange the tables in a row, cover with a cloth, put on the "eats," arrange yourself around the table in an informal manner an 1 you can have “some feed," providing it is no “stag" affair. Silence and inactivity are not permissible at such an affair, and the one who can deliver an oration, tell jokes to his “buddy," masticate his own nutriment and lay in a reserve supply all at one time is usually the one who enjoys himself most. Of course this is not the only one who has a good time, for Mr. Peterson is careful to see that time does not hang heavily on anyone’s hands.
----'OU may think it great fun to manipulate a typewriter, hut after having
I I tickled the keys for two months you feel as if you had earned a day's vacation. Our typewriting and short hand class were of the same opinion, and when Miss Davis suggested Center Grove, the class immediately made preparations for the outing. The expedition started early in the morning and assumed the form of a m niature picnic, w:th the brass hand excepted. The forenoon was spent in various gambols on the green, followed by an elaborate spread. Many pictures were taken as a remembrance of this occasion. In the afternoon the company retired to the football campus to witness the contest on the gridiron.
HAR hack in ancient times the people would celebrate their musical successes by givrng a banquet. Miss Krome, not to be outdone by the ancients, resolved to carry out the same project, so she gave a banquet to the orchestra and to those who had made special efforts to insure success to the High School concert. This brought fortli a conglomeration probably never before seen at a social affair of the High School, but Miss Krome proved herself a splendid hostess and had everyone at his ease.
Page Forty-eightTREMOR of excitement and pleasure passed through the entire school when Mr. Sayre announced that a box social would be held in the gym- 1 nasiutn. There are very few occasions when the entire school conies
together for social purposes, so this one was universally welcomed. The girls responded willingly with their edible contributions, and the boys cheerfully provided the useful "kale,”—probably on account of the “half-dollar limit.” This regulation enabled the boys to purchase the desired box by going the "limit" at the very outset, and it is needless to sav that many limits were bid.
XX THE first month of this semester, a Junior Commercial Club was formed under the supervision of Miss Davis, and on the 8th of March they held their first meeting. A very good program was rendered the first part of the evening, the chief number of which was an address by a prominent local business man. The club was organized as a help to the commercial students who intend to enter actual business life. Of course it is customary to mix business with pleasure, hence the latter part of the evening was spent in the customary eats and other forms of amusement.
kEAL histrionic ability cannot usually be detected except by experiment. This year the Junior class showed their ability along this line by giving a tbree-act play entitled, “A Rival by Request." The play went off very smoothly and no particular mention need be made of any individual, for they all deserve commendation. Miss Fiegenbaum, who had charge of the affair, deserves praise for her ability in staging the play in such a successful manner.
School spirit, the favorite topic of all students, is an indefinable something which is supposed to permeate the atmosphere of a High School. It is distinguished above other things because it is always possessed in large quantities by students of other schools, but many are under the impression that there is a noticeable lack of it in their own E. II. S. In fact, the only person who has any is yourself, and you have a great deal; but really it is too much to expect you to furnish enough for all the other students. The fervor and enthusiasm which is displayed in a brass band and a big parade on the day of a big football game, and sore throats of the day aTer. followed by tbe crit’cisms of the team and your fellow students in general, is a peculiar form of school spirit which is often mistaken. from a long distance range, for the real stuff. It is mainly useful for long suffering editors, when they realize that they must have something to fill the editorial column. Indeed, if it were not for school sp’rit, what would the students talk about ?
In getting together this fourth volume of the Tiger, we have endeavored to keep the spirit of “With malice toward none, and charity toward all" prevalent throughout the entire book.
Play the game, deliver the goods and your average will travel upward.
Some people get sore when they are bawled out and some when they are not. So what are you going to do about it? If you have been missed, submit all suggestions to next year's editor.
The business manager of an annual is always anxious that the subscribers cash up as soon as possible. We can’t live on faith, like preachers.
If you believe that a task can't be done, it probably can't—by you.
Page FiftyIt has formerly been said that we had no pep; but where is the man who would dare to make such a remark in the presence of a student. Edwardsville turned out a fairly good football team this year, and certainly the best basketball team of all her career. We believe that one reason for the exceptional playing of our boys this season was the united support of students and faculty. Our boys knew that the bunch was behind them, not only from their presence at the games, but also from the way they yelled. When their leader called for a yell, all started on the first word and yelled in unison, so we can truthfully say that our yelling was the best we have had. ()ther schools are lamenting the fact that so few will help with the yelling. But not so at F.. II. S.; we yell as if our lives depended on it. You Juniors and lower classmen, remember that next year and you'll find it will work wonders. It’s half the winning team's victory, merely the knowledge that the crowd is behind them. Many a game has been won by a rousing cheer or shout of encouragement to a player.
We call the reader’s attention to the fact that all the cuts and drawings for the 1917 Tiger were made right here in old E. H. S. The artistic side of the annual has been made possible bv the generous help of Edward Bertalan. Alfred Morefield, James Kane, C. 11. Peterson, James Allen and Win. Richardson. We are under many obligations to these gentlemen for their faithful work in behalf of the 1917 Tiger.
In the course of one's H. S. career, there are numerous opportunities to be accommodating to your fellow students. And by the way, a willingness to accommodate is a bully thing to have. It makes folks like you and that is a good thing; but better than that, it is a source of real pleasure to yourself. There are not many things that are more fun than putting yourself out to do something for the other fellow.
We, the Tiger staff for 1917, do hereby apologize for all in this book that may possibly be contrary to the wishes of the students and faculty of E. H. S. We have tried to exclude everything that is uncomplimentary and have endeavored to make the book pleasing to all. Realizing that mistakes have been made, we ask that you
“lie to its virtues very kind,
Be to its faults a little blind."
We wish to extend our sincere good wishes for complete success to the Tiger staff of 1918, and hope that their annual may be the best yet.
And now, as we leave dear old E. H. S., we can not help but feel a pang of regret, for some friendships have been formed in E. H. S. that will undoubtedly be broken and lost from sight. In after years, we are sure that we will cherish fond memories of our Alma Mater and will never forget the pleasant four years we have labored within its walls.

Whereas, The Baby Grand piano has been removed from our midst in E.H.S., where it has stood for innumerable years.
Whereas, It has entertained hundreds of folks, some of whom are now deceased, by its harmonies—sacred, operatic, secular;
Whereas, it has played times innumerable the favorite songs of E. H. S.— “Orange and the Black,” “We Are the Edwardsville High School" and “America
Whereas, Its keys have been yellowed with age and grimed by dust from the janitor’s brush, and its strings made discordant by faithful and constant use;
Be it Resolved. That we. the students of II. S., will cherish a fond and lasting memory of the old piano, and trust that it will entertain with its melodies, the coming generations who labor in the Columbus building.

“Yes," said Ivan, in embarrassment, "there is, but I’m going to pay it off tomorrow.”

Page SixtyADVICE TO THE FORLORN By Miss Beatrice Beartrax
Dear Miss Beartrax:
Can you tell me how to care for a Wandering Jew? I am afraid I have lost mine. H. L. L.
H. L. L.—N o, I can not. Why not try a Wahl flower? I am sure that you will find it more satisfactory in the end for it will require very little care and will always stay fresh and green. B. B.
Dear Miss Beartrax:
Although I live on a farm, I have been attending school in Edwardsville and. do you know, I seem to have made quite a hit, especially among the girls. One of them in particular seem; to have taken quite a fancy to me, for she has told me that she’d love to live on a farm, and she has even turned down a very old friend just for me. Do you think 1 ought to keep her interest aroused by going with some of the other girls occasionally? E. C. B.
P. S.—We both have read hair.
E. C. B.—It may be a good idea but you’d better go slow. It's rather dangerous to trifle with the affections of an auburn-haired maiden. • B. B.
Dear Miss Beatrax:
I walked home behind Simon and Mildred this noon. What can I do to stop my pain quick? Yours in a hurry’,
LITTLE FRESH IE.
Little Freshie—Go around the other way. B. B.
Dear Miss Beartrax:
I am a Junior and have been coming to school here this last semester only. I have been going to see a girl three nights a week and besides that have some sort of date with her two other nights. Do you think she likes me? N. S.
N. S.—Assuredly not. If she does, what is the matter with the other two nights? B. B.
Dear Miss Beartrax:
Do you think any one in the Freshman class is too young to be in love? I’m only a Freshman, but I don’t know what else can be the matter with me. I feel so badly all the time when I’m not with her. SAMMY.
P. S.—Don’t you think Nina is an awfully nice name?
Sammy—Your explanation is correct, but you’ll be older some day. B. B.
Dear Miss Beartrax:
Do you think that a science teacher with beautiful jet black locks and soulful dark brown eyes would be fickle minded? BILLY.
Billy—My dear child, beware of science teachers. They are known to be fond of experimenting. B. B.
Because of my scholastic tendencies, 1 have always been too profoundly immersed in my own subconscious meditations to entertain any feeling of regard for the fairer sex until this year. I am now enamored with a fair maiden who does not seem to reciprocate. For the sake of winning her coveted plaudits, I have already schooled myself to sundry manly accomplishments and have become not only athletic, but even pugilistic, but all, I fear, to little avail. How can I make her understand my estimation for her? M. W.
M. W. — Present her with a good dictionary. That ought to be a great aid.

“Rome was built in the night,” declared Irene Fruit.

now. If I were you. I’d practice all night when I got down there."
Mr. B. (caressing his right shoe) : You will get over it. It was only puppy M. B. (sobbing) : B-b-but he was such a nice puppy.
Oliver Stieren asked that he might not be mentioned among the jokes. This is a guarantee that he isn’t.
Wm. Borchwardt (in Chemistry 4): Willie had some mercury,
l ie thought he’d gulp it down, ’Twas a chilly day for Willie, When the mercury went down.
Of all the sad words from lip or pen.
The saddest are these, “I flunked again."
A Freshie stood on the burning deck. But as far as I could learn.
He had no reason much to fear.
For he was too green to burn.
Edna has a little beau,
His hair is black as jet,
And everywhere that Edna goes. He always tries to get.

LATEST PRODUCTION OF OUR 11. S. POET
If when your work is finished,
The clamour and the tears,
That follow one another in the Sequence of the years,
A timid little memory of Things that used to be.
Should flutter to your threshold,
Please let it in and see,
If, after all, the dearest Gifts that it brings back,
Are not your II. S. friendships ’Neath the Orange and the Pdack.

Whether with Jitneys or Greenbacks, learn THRIFT as you would the alphabet. It’s a sure sign of business sense, don’t you know, and business calls for the young fellow that makes his regular trips to the bank.
If you gain the reputation of being “fast,” you creditors will soon brand you as “slow.”
When you start being thrifty, by the time you are fifty, there will be a balance nifty, where there never was before.
