The Editors herewith present the Fifth Volume of the Tiger. It has survived even though Mars rules the world and Conservatism greets us on every side. With such difficulties it has been a particularly hard task to produce this book, but in the years to come may this fact make its memory even more dear.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
The old bard touched his lyre with a loving, gentle hand. He had been entertaining the guests of his lord during the long evening and was now preparing his closing song. I he first notes were suggestive of the patter of many timid feet. Gradually the music grew bolder,with here and there a minor passage. His words fitted the music; pathos to discover the tempo, and with a spirited burst of flying notes, the first canto of his song came to an end.
The second canto began in a brisk movement, gaining in volume and tone as it advanced. Now, the bard sang of triumphs and victories, of great characters, of athletic games, of festivals where laughter and gaiety prevailed, then of more serious things as learning and loyalty to leaders and cause. All sat spell-bound as they listened to the tale of these wonderful achievements. Again, there were some suggestions of sadnss among all this glory and grandeur; and once more a canto was ended.
When he again began his song, he sang of the organized body of willing workers; and, at the same time of courteous gentlemen and gracious ladies. Tales of their trials and successes flowed from his lips to the accompaniment of his mellow-toned lyre. Suddenly, he stopped in the midst of his song, his eyes fixed upon some distant point. “A Vision” he gasped and sank to the ground. The guests stared at each other in wonder and awe. “Can this be true?” they asked. “Will it ever happen?”
We, living in later years, have seen the fulfillment of events as described in the song, for it was the history of the Juniors, the class of 1919. The vision which remained obscure forever to the listening guests, remains for the present obscure to us, for it is undoubtedly, the fourth year of our course at E. H. S. May it be as happy and as profitable as the years that have passed.

Page Twenty-sixJunior Class Roll and Quotations
"Silence, when nothing need he said, is the eloquence of discretion."
Gladys Barraclough :
A face that never smiles is never good.
Carolyn Eisman :
Far from the gay cities and the ways of men.
Ruth Fangenroth :
. I often regretted having spoken, never having kept silent.
Doris Fehn :
There is no greater pleasure than the solitude of books.
Frank Guseyvelle :
Allay with some cold modesty thy skipping spirit.
To swear, except when necessary, is unbecoming to an honorable man.
Begone dull care, thou and I shall never agree-
I never with important air, in conversation overbear.
Simon Kellerman :
Ay, a second Patrick Henry!
But touched with human gentleness and love.
One may smite, and smile, and be a villain.
None but himself is his parallel.
Edna ffloT .:
Friendship far better is than gold.
With malice towards none, and a kind word for all.
Why, then, do ua k as if you had swallowed a ramrod?
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
care for nobody no not I; if nobody cares for me.
I find the joys of heaven here on earth.
Let not my hair be out of order.
Page Twenty-sevenEsther Shupack:
Fair she is, if mine eyes are true.
Modesty becomes this young lady.
I awoke one morning and found myself famous.
Let your literary compositions be kept from the public eye for at least nine years.
Until 1 shall become a police-man, Edwardsville will be a corrupt city.
There ain’t no use to grumble and complain.
Aivay with him, away with him, he speaks Latin.
A man severe he was, and stern to view.
Strange to the world, he wore a bashful look.
With thee conversing, I forget all time.
When duty grows the law, enjoyment fades away.
A man he was, to all the High School dear.
If I Should Die Today
Last night I was a-thinkin’ in a kinda dreamy way
And a-wonderin’ what would happen if I should die today
An’ I jes could see the Faculty a-lookin’ kinda sad
And a-wishin’ they hadn’t scolded me so much when I was bad.
I could see the teachers lookin’ at my grades— all fours and threes,
And picturin’ me an Angel, all in white, and on my knees;
And a-feel in’ sort o’ sorry cause they never knew that I Couldn’t ’predate the earthly things— my home was in the sky—
An’ they wished they hadn’t graded me all fives, and threes, an’ fours, Then slyly ’rased them from the books,—but first they closed the doors. An’ then the tears came to their eyes,—they loved me mucher’n I Had ever thought they could love—I wish that I would die!

Page ThirtyThe Great Sophomore Band
Once again,—but how changed since our schooling began,—
We have heard the deep voice of the “principal man,”
And the walls of the High School resound to the roar 'That wearies the mind of the poor “Sophomore.”
Alas! my dear friends why do you yearn
For the things that you well know can never return?
Can you live the dear life of your childhood again And tho’ older in years, remain Freshmen as then ?
It was then that around you, alone and unknown,
Long spells of in tensest excitement were thrown;
We found if we failed to do all things with care A look of reproof came from “Principal Sayre.”
The call of the bugle and the clang of the bell Each had a message it strove to foretell ;
But the fear-stricken “Freshmen” more bold than before Heard the stern word “Obey” and they heard nothing more.
As a Sophomore band we awoke at the call And braved the confusion with never a fall;
And joined in athletics with the greatest of “pep”
Till the school came to realize that we weren’t dead yet.
When a party committee had sent orders out,
'There was a fine show of babies, without any doubt,
For they came from Indiana, Missouri and all To attend our wonderful Sophomore ball.
Then Sorrow came in, for some stayed behind To take a few subjects of the “Freshman” kind;
And now ’twas our pleasure the “prep” to accept For into our class she had timidly crept.
And, next, to election our energies bent And Victor was chosen our first President;
But, in the next offices no boys were seen For one went to Vera and one to Irene.
And now as we are, full seventy strong,
We are rooting and boosting, by yell and by song,
For our dear Alma Mater, and we’ll stand the test In our efforts to make her the greatest and best.
M ay she in the future, deserve all the praise That the Sophomores now in full chorus do raise;
And we hope that in ’20, she’ll feel great and grand 'To present at commencement, this Sophomore band.
Page Thiriy-onePage Thirty-twoThe World That Lies Before Us
We, the Freshmen, bright and funny,
On a morning all so sunny,
Left our homes and kindred dear,
In our hearts a lessening fear Of the world that lay before us-
We, the Freshmen, never weary,
Heedless of the days so dreary That they said to us would come,
To the class of TWKNI -ONh!
In the world that lay before us.
We, the Freshmen, hearts a-flutter,
Listened to the others mutter Of the storm clouds far ahead;
That were sure to break, they said In the world that lay before us.
We, the Freshmen, now secure In the knowledge, rich and pure,
That the clouds will never come To the class of TWENTY-ONE,
In the world that lies before us.
We, the Freshmen, pride and joy,
Of the Faculty who toy With the destinies of men,
Mean to leave a big mark, when We leave the world that lies before us.

Page Thirty-sixTHE junior commercial club
Axei. Anderson Clemens Nitche
Arthur Westerholt Christine Ballweg
Achievement and success have marked the growth of this club since organization. Never has any club in the history of the High School answered such a splendid twofold purpose. From the time of its organization in 1917 it has grown and prospered, until now it is the one recognized club of the school. This, however, would not have been possible had it not been for our efficient director. Miss Davis. Under her supervision things are almost pre-destined to prosper and her efforts in this capacity were not without success.
Business and pleasure have been so uniquely combined that the one hundred twenty charter members, together with the faculty, look forward to its meetings. The purpose of this club is to aid High School graduates to meet more squarely and preparedly the business problems of the world. In this, we think we have succeeded, for at every monthly meeting there has been some prominent business man to address the club on a subject of interest. With the growth and success it has already witnessed, we feel safe in saying that in the future it will become THE club of Edwards-ville High School.
“Music has charms to soothe a savage breast.”
If you could only hear the High School chorus sing, the above statement would be confirmed. 1 his year the chorus is under a new director, but nevertheless its talent has not declined. It is composed of a body of industrious workers, and its success has been witnessed by strides and bounds. To Miss Grace we must concede the honor of reorganizing an orchestra whose merits have been appraised by all who heard them. 1 hey have valiantly responded to every call for the many school entertainments, and Miss Grace has always cheerfully and willingly led the High School in general concerts.
Left to right—Lester Brockmeier, Oscar Ochs, Carl Russell, Carl Latowsky, Walter Stullken, Arthur Westerholt, Oliver McNeilly.
Vera Henry, Bessie Ryder, Della Henry, Miss Grace, Wilma Smith, Mary Hueter-
Nor, should the Boy’s Quartette be forgotten. It is composed of two old and established songsters, Carl Latowsky and Ivan Hays, and two newly drafted members, Bruce Tuxhorn and Victor Boeker. They were always enthusiastically received by the High School students, and their fame had so far preceded them that they were even approached for outside functions. Thus, it is music that relieves the monotony and makes our school life revolve more smoothly. No school should be without it.
THE MARATHON AND OLYMPIAN CAMPS
In no previous year has the High School produced such an arrat of girl athletes. They bubbled over with interest from the first, and with the aid of the two enthusiastic and progressive captains they were a shining success. True “party spirit” reigned in the camps throughout the season, and each displayed its athletic capacity even to its own amazement. So widespread was their reputation that even the faculty appealed and petitioned for a game with them. The camps played each other for supremacy and at every game the “gym” resounded with cheers from their admirers. I he Marathons, however, proved to possess more talent and capability and consequently were victorious.
May the camps continue to grow and prosper, and may they produce athletes which will some day bring home the laurel wreath.
Early in the fall the Juniors, not wanting to be excelled by the Seniors, formed a Junior Debating Club, or as they more artistically termed themselves “The Forum.” They, however, entered into a broader field of action than the Seniors and held monthly meetings. The club is composed of thirty Junior and Sophomore members, and with the enthusiastic president, James Waters, and under the supervision of Miss Fiegenbaum, it has succeeded in all it wished to attain. With a year or two more of such excellent training, it is believed they could make Patrick Henry concede some of his undying fame to the younger and more enthusiastic debaters-
Page Thirty-ninePage FortySociety
OMEONE had to break the ice in the social circle this year, and, as usual, Mr. Petersen did it. But really on that day there was no ice; the morning dawned ' warm and beautiful, and evening saw a number of autos filled to capacity with students,—and eats,—whirling away toward Monk’s Mound. It was a strange crowd that arrived there,—it was necessary to scrape off dust before recognition was possible. By the time the top of the mound had been reached, it was also necessary to satisfy a general feeling of hunger. The beautiful sunset, and soft, falling shadows aroused sentimentality in the hearts of some, and they wandered off to quiet little nooks to give vent to their feelings. The crowd came joyfully home again,—but first, to the picture show.
OH, the feelings of sadness when Mr. Petersen had to leave us! On October 23, the Faculty, Seniors, and Juniors gave a farewell party in his honor. Someone suggested the “lockstep” from the gymnasium to the third floor, and it was received with enthusiasm. The bunch marched from the gymnasium to the third floor with as much noise as possible. At the last, Mr. Petersen was presented with a fountain pen to remind him of the good old days he spent in E- H. S.
COUI.D anything be more cute than a Freshman party with a Christmas tree— a real, live Christmas tree, with candles, an’ tinsel, an’ presents, an pretty light's an’ everything to delight a childish heart? All the Faculty were there to protect the little “dears” from harm, and to prevent their indulging in any dangerous exploit. They romped and played over the gymnasium floor, and their little hearts bubbled over with joy when each was presented with a little sack of candy. It would touch the hard heart of any brute to have seen these gambols of childhood.
T T was rather unusual—an oyster cocktail party—but such there was on a cold I night in January. However, a Senior affair is generally quite unique. 1 he members of that illustrious class condescended to throw aside their dignity and play once more the ‘ games of their childhood days.” But what happened to the cocoa?” No one knew—at least, no one would tell,—yet, whenever the question was asked, Miss Hiles chuckled mischievously to herself. It is useless to mention the cocktails for,
“So quickly they flew, that sight Could not follow them in flight.”
Then, too, there was oyster soup, and sandwiches, and lots of good things to eat. As it is usually expressed, “a good time was enjoyed by all.”
EAT, drink and be merry” was the slogan of the Sophomores on the night of |an. 18th. Mr. Hoover and his principles were entirely forgotten for the menu was unusually large. Each member of the party brought his baby picture to show how much he had grown since the days of his infancy long, long ago.
Page Forty-oneSome of the pictures could almost be recognized. A great tragedy—there were to be no dates—because none could be purchased anywhere.
THE typewriting class gave a marshmellow toast in Springer's woods, and they were kind enough to invite some of those pupils who are not exposed to that subject. Arnold built the fire, and that is why it burned so cheerfully; it seems as it he can do almost anything. While all were busily toasting marshmallows around the fire, Miss Davis brought up two large baskets of delicious popcorn, and she readily became the center of attraction. The crowd entered heartily into the fun and spirit of that old familiar game, “Run, Sheep, Run,” although the night was dark and “spooky,” the girls had no need to fear, for they were nobly protected.
YOU can imagine the crowd—about ninety enthusiastic boys and girls packed like sardines in one car bound for G. C. H. S. Such remarks as, “I know I’ll never look the same” and “Give me room or give me death” could be heard everywhere. I he weather was disagreeable and i rained, but all this did not dampen the spirits of the crowd. The yelling and cheering never has been, nor can be surpassed in volume and violence. The second team won, but we did not want to be so selfish as to take all, we brought home just “half the bacon.”

“Lives of football men remind us, We can write our names in blood And departing, leave behind us Half our faces in the mud.”
In the fall of 1917 the High School of this city again attempted to organize a successful football team. Scientific reasoning and the process of elimination were to produce the most wonderful team that the school had ever known- Here is the lineup: One 200-pound center, one 50-pound sub; two ends, one of six feet in altitude
and 130 pounds avoirdupois. 1 he other was the handsomest boy in school, and we might add that he was the captain of the team. 1 hen we come to our all-star halfback, he could swear fluently, bawl any member of the squad and worry the on the side lines. He was “simply grand.” Next in importance to this halt-hack came the full-back, the proud possessor of a wonderful mane of long black hair, really played a good game. The other half-back was the mainstay of the team. e could run, as a Litchfield girl said, “Like a scared dog. Now the line, first, o-mouse,” nobody knows where he got the name, but it was universally adopted, ub-
Paye Forty-threeby,” who was really good; “Red” played his best game at East St. Louis; “Warhorse,” the inventor of a “charley horse” just before we went to East St. Louis; Hlad, who had the nerve to smoke in front of the coach; Stieren, the shower room vocalist; Ferguson, even though crushed to earth he would rise again; Dunlap, sweet voiced cherubim, last and also least, Sammy, our 50-pound sub of Jewish descent. With this lineup we prepared to swamp this end of the state. Of course, you are interested in the result- Our first game was Carlinville; I have forgotten the score for I can’t count that high. We went to Litchfield with enough pep to lick the average postage stamp, but when our “scared dog” scored a touchdown, we woke up. We took Litchfield to an awful cleaning and came home raving and snorting. It was hard to convince the home boys, but we did it! We won and lost until the last game. The whirling, twinkling toes of the dancer and the rush of social duties robbed the team of its captain.
“And in the nights of winter When the cold north winds blow When the stove in the “Idle Hour”
Throws out its ruddy glow.
With weeping and with laughter Still is the story told Of E. H. S. football team As it was in days of old!”
Page Forty-fourBasket Ball
The season of basket ball was a very important and victorious one. Several ardent students declared after seeing our boys defeat Last St. Louis, that "our team just could’nt be beaten.” We broke about “fifty-five” in victories and defeats. One of the greatest assets of the team was the way the students backed them up. Never before was there such an enthusiastic crowd in the gym to watch the games as there was this year. Every pupil and teacher yelled as loudly as they could during the whole game, and even though defeat stared us in the face we did not “let up.” But who wouldn’t get behind a team such as we had this year? With “Slim Bartlett as center, where all the girls could see him. he certainly made a hit. By the way, he wanted to be off by himself because there was one girl whom he did not want to lose sight of during the entire game. Nantkes, Daech, Wood, Westerholt and Doeblin were forwards, and every one a good one, too. I hey all had their chance and proved fit for their position. “Warhorse” Love, and “Wormy” Williamson formed a very good combination as guards. When Love began to grit his teeth and started in for his opponent, we knew there was going to be something doing. Both of the guards did splendid work. McDonald as sub-guard, was good, and played a fast game.
The Basket-ball Tournament held at Shelbvville from Feb. 28 to March 2, was represented by seventeen schools from the state. Our boys placed fourth at this meet, which was very creditable to them and to the school they represented. One of our star players was unable to go and we had some very good teams to encounter, but every one commended our team on their fast and splendid team work.
Page 1'orty-fiveThe Track Meets of 1917
The McKendree Interscholastic Track and Field Meet was held the first Saturday of last May. E. H. S. was represented by Southard. Nantkes, Teasdale, Hayes, Kel-lerman, Bartlett, Stulken, and Johnson. Teasdale won the three-mile at a record breaking time of 18:5, Nantkes placed second in the pole vault with 9 ft. 9 in., and Bartlett placed third in the high jump with 5 ft. 5in. Owing to the rain and mud about “shoe-top deep,” the records were kept low- Harrisburg, represented by the winning team of the previous year, again repeated their performance this year.
The Eastern Illinois State Normal Interscholastic Meet was held at Charleston the third week in May. This was the second Meet we entered. There were twenty-seven schools represented, covering a portion of the state bounded by the towns Kankakee, Harrisburg, Paris, and Edwardsville. Southard, Kellerman. Bartlett, and Teasdale were sent from E. H. S. and placed third with eleven points. Southard, the star representative from Edwardsville, broke two records, one in the 100-yard dash, when he carried off the honors in 10 seconds flat, the record in the 220-yard dash which he won in the record time of 22 4 5 seconds, each of the records lowered the previous ones by 1 5 second. Without a doubt Southard was one of the fastest men in the state, and he hailed from old E. H. S. Bartlett and Kellerman secured several points by placing third and fourth in the high jump and the 440-yard dash respectively.
The Spring Inter-Class Tournament
We will confess that it was a dazed and bewildered lot of Seniors that filed out of the gymnasium on the night of the finals of the Class Tournament. It had been freely conceded, not only by themselves, but by the other classes as well, that the Seniors team would win without doubt; and to many it seemed foolish and unnecessary to go through the formality of playing the final game at all. But the unexpected,-the unbelievable, incredible thing,—had happened! Our team had lost,—not only the final game, but with it the Class Championship of the year. And who do you think it was that beat us? None other than the lowly, humble Freshman, a class which never before had been known as serious contenders in a tournament. Our boys were out of luck.—they could’nt “get together” and they undoubtedly did not play their regular game, but we must and will concede that the class of 1921 has the fastest, strongest team that ever represented a Freshman class.
1 he Juniors defeated the Sophs for third honors, so the final results of the tournament were: 1st, Freshman; 2nd, Seniors; 3rd, Juniors; 4th, Sophomores.
I he championship game between the girls teams, the Marathons and the Olympians,—was quite an affair this year. Both camps played hard to win, but the Marathons ran away with the laurels.

18— Miss (iracc to her class, “I’m mad—I am,” and then sh? laughed!
20—Some of the Seniors have a “feed,” and Mr. Petersen, the chaperone, threw a sandwich at one of the girls and hit her on the ear. Wasn’t he naughty?

In the Assembly Hall of the Edwardsville High School there hangs a Service Flag, on which are affixed forty-eight stars, each one representing an Alumnus who has entered his country’s service. At even this early date, two of the blue stars have been removed, to give place to stars of gold, and the High School feels a sorrowful pride in the realization that two of its own graduates are enrolled among the number of those who have nobly died in order that liberty might live.
Following are the names of the Alumni who, up to this date,—May 19, 1918,— have answered their country’s call:—

THAT HYPNOTIZING MAN
’Twas on a certain winter night.
Our parents raised the ban And let us see a wondrous sight A hypnotizing man!
And no one ever saw the likes;
Before the show began,
He made men sleep, and ride on bikes!
This hypnotizing man!
The boys all laugh and challenged him To “catch us if you can”
Well! he came, he saw, he conquered,—did That hynotizing man.
Axel and Claude, we know of these,
And others of their clan,
Who flirted and danced, and all to please The hypnotizing man.
Davis’s speech he did abate!”
“Just talk now if you can,”
Said the world’s wonder number eight,—
This hynotizing man.
Davis couldn’t talk! Now that’s A thing not in life’s plan-And the teachers all took off their hats To the hypnotizing man !
Wilbur P.: “Was Helen amused at your mustache?”
Harlan: “Yes, it rather tickles her sometimes.”
Ben W. (at the encyclopedia): “Sav, Harold, have you got the encyclopedia

Harold T.: “No, but I’ll get “L” if I don’t get this Latin. Keep still!”
Lester B. (in a zoology examination) : “Bilateral symmetry is when a worm is cut in two and then lives.”
Fifty-sixWHY OF COURSE
It was on the first day and the new zoology instructor was trying to arouse enthusiasm by means of a few general remarks and question.
“Now, who can tell me,” she asked, “What animal has the greatest natural fondness for man ?”
“Woman,” was the instantaneous response from a sophisticated Senior in the back of the room.
During the noon hour in the typewriting room, Irma S. was singing in a loud and melodious voice, “I don’t want to get well—I don’t want to get well I-
M ary M., who was trying to make a “perfect” paper, sarcastically interrupted, Oh, never mind, you won’t!”
A FRESHMAN’S LAMENT
Said a Freshman to a Senior, “I’m bigger than you.”
“You’re not,” said the other, “Why yes, I am too-”
“I tell you, you’re not, you are shorter than I.”
“But I guess I know better,” the first made reply.
I can look on your head I’ve a full inch to spare.
For the top of your head strikes the edge of my hair.”
“You can’t see—your eyes aren’t straight in your head,”
“If I’d such a nose, so unbearably red I don’t think I’d talk about eyes,” the Freshie said.
“Look here,” cried the Senior, “I won’t take such talk From a Freshie that’s just about learning to walk!”
So he argued and argued as all Seniors do.
And the Freshie was glad to take his point of view.

10c A DIME
A story, you say? A good one? Well listen to this:—
Sitting on our front porch one summer evening, a young lad playing near pulled some junk out of his pockets, and a Dime rolled out and was lost under the porch. After a short search the kid gave up looking for it, saying, “What’s a Dime, anyhow?’
It sort of aroused my ire, because I've had to hustle for my Dimes— and then some.
“A Dime, my boy” I answered, “is 10 cents. It stands for a years interest on $2.00 at 5 per cent—which is a sum you haven't in your jeans at the present time. Put a Dime a Day in the Bank for 30 days and you will have $3.00, the interest on $60.00 at the same rate—which sum you have never been able to scrape together to save your youthful neck.”
“Now that isn’t all. Dump that money into a savings account and it starts to work for you and earn interest. You’ve only one pair of hands and one head, and if you rely upon them alone they won’t produce much. But when you get some hundreds of Dimes dusting around and earning interest for you, money is going to pile up faster than you dream.”
“It’s something worth remembering, that very few men can make much with their own hands and their own head piece. lust a living— perhaps a bit over. Employ your Dimes to work for you, even though only a small profit on each one, and you will soon have to increase the size of your measure to cart your coin to the bank. That’s the way with money. Get it working for you—hustling for you and you will rake in the coin and roll up a bank account. By spending it you help someone else do it.”
“A Dime, my boy, is the father of the Dollar, and the Grand-dad of a Fortune—if you bring them up right. ’

Pc.'If I: u IllyCHIROPRACTIC The Way to Health
The greatest, most wonderful drugless method for correcting the cause of disease
Chiropractic! Nature’s method, locates and corrects the cause of 95 per cent of all human ailments, such as Appendicitis, Goitre, Gout,
Gout, Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Constipation,
Asthma, Hay Fever, Paralysis, Piles, Pleurisy
Sciatica, Back Ache, Lumbago, Epilepsy,
Heart Disease, Insanity, Affections of the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat, Stomach, Bowels,
Kidneys, Liver and other organs.
These and many other diseases are due to nerve compression.
Such pressure decreases the normal quantity of nerve force to various parts of the body, and results in weakness and disease.
There is no effect without a cause.
Chiropractic eliminates the cause.
If you are sick use your reason; do not dose your stomach for a distress which is due to some nerve being under pressure.
Have a Chiropractor remove the pressure and you will get well.
LADIES—In no line of diseases do we have better success than in the various diseases and ailments which effect womankind.
The cause of female diseases as well as others, is located in the spine.
Benefits are promptly shown without the annoyance to which women are subjected when undergoing other forms of “Treats ments.”
The proper nerve supply being restored, normal functions are quickly re-established, health is the result. My book, “Chiropractic and Women,” will be given to you absolutely free, upon request.
Investigate! Much is brought to light by investigation which would otherwise remain in darkness.
