Text from Pages 1 - 98 of the 1919 volume:

FOREWORD E. H. S. can be justly proud of the five annuals that have preceded Volume VI. Each has successfully furthered the school spirit and the feeling of loyalty toward the Alma Mater. It has been our aim and ardent wish to develop this spirit even farther and to tighten the bond of friendship existing between all who have enlisted beneath the “colors of the school we love so well.” The Edwardsville High Schooi(2 n Mxaa (Srar?

"Oh, call it by some better dame, For friendship sounds too cold!” The Seniors The boys have decided as to graduation day: They will show how past events our future actions sway; They will speak of how the world goes ever on and on, Steered across the sea of time by happenings agone, The girls are undecided—say they can’t make up their mind If their graduation waists should or should not be lined. The boys have statistics on the influence of deeds; Each girl finds new problems on each fashion sheet she reads; The boys know precisely how the country should be run; One girl is in hysterics, for her dress is not begun, T he boys view the future with a calm, unbiased air; The girls are in a fidget, for they don’t know what to wear.

For the rosy clouds of the sunset So tinge the sky with gold, That we dread not the morrow ’s sunrise Nor the mystery of things untold. Soon now the dusk will be o’er us, As the sunset fades away, And we shall have only the mem’ries Of this one long happy day. And then in the glowing twilight, Will come thoughts of the ended day,— Thoughts of the lights and the shadows, — Recollections of toil and play. Lessons learned and vict’ries accomplished, Along with defeats, we’ll recall; While among all the mem’ries we cherish, Will be Alma Mater,—the dearest of all. And when the dawn of to-morrow Comes in with to-morrow’s sun, We’ll banish regret for the yesterday, And welcome the new one begun.

Some Facts Worth Knowing Two years ago, when we, the present Seniors, were beginning the second lap of our four-year race, many remarked that we were the slowest class that ever entered E. H. S. We’ll admit that we were rather slow, hut not without a thorough explanation. Our class was so studious and conscientious in their scholarly endeavors that we thought parties, banquets, etc., criminal. That was in our Sophomore year. Things began to change greatly in our Junior Year, however, for it was then that we started on the path of fame and prominence. Our Junior class play was one of the best ever given by any class, and the way in which we conducted the Junior-Senior Banquet was nothing short of marvelous. So passed our Junior year. Now to come to the big year, commonly known as the Senior! We started with a rush in September, before the other classes had awakened to the fact that school had reopened. The “flu vacations” put us back for a time, but we easily offset these delays after returning to school. Our class parties were always successful, because of the peculiar fact that we had more boys than girls in the class, and because every one could dance, who attended our class functions. True, they weren’t all Vernon Castles, but they could at least keep step, and that’s all that is necessary. Throughout the whole of our Senior year, the entire school began to realize the value of the Senior Class. Have you ever considered what the school will lose upon our graduation? Let’s enumerate! It will lose: Thirty-ont incomparable students, who comprise the class of 1919. Four varsity basketball players, including the captain. Almost the entire 1918 football team. The best cheer leader the school has ever had—barring none. A few “billiard sharks.” The best looking girls in High School. Fhe second Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle. Many—-many other personages, talents, etc., which space will not permit us to mention. 'I he loss, however, is not all on the side of the school, for we will also lose: Chances to give dancing exhibitions' on the assembly stage. All chances to exhibit our skill in athletics. The joy of stamping our feet when some poor freshman finds it necessary to consult the dictionary. The sight of the faculty which daily fills our life with sunshine. All chances to indulge in social chats in the hallway. Many “intimate” friends, both male and female, in the lower classes. Our last chance to argue the question of grading with Miss' Fiegenbaum. And saddest of all we will lose our exalted, and dignified position as Seniors, which we exercised to the utmost on all occasions, and which we are now forced to concede to the oncoming Seniors.

H. S. ye cast a scornful glance upon them. Y'ea, we the Sophomores, hath outlived the scorn of the Freshman year. Henceforth, all with whom we come in contact shall be held spellbound with admiration. Nay, they shall exclaim that here they find genius, beauty, intelligence, yea, and all other splendid attributes of mankind. Verily, I say much for the faculty when in ’21 this brilliant band of students bid farewell to E. H. S. Yea, tears of regret shall bedim their eyes' when no more they behold the smiling faces of the class of ’21, for I ask of ye, “When comes such another ?” And verily I say unto you, all future Freshmen, heed not the scorn of upper classmen. If when thou doth a foolish thing and a Senior sayeth, “Silly Freshman, wilt thou never learn better,” Freshmen, I say unto you, reply to him, “Senior, I heed thee not, thou, I knowest, hast done more foolish things in thy Freshmen year.” Yea, little Freshie, even while a Senior he hast done more foolish things. Mayest thou profit by thy foregoing example, the class of ’21, and let our trials ever be a guide to thy inexperienced feet when the educational pathway becomes rough and steep.

Nine school weeks were lost due to the Influenza, and it has been necessary to lengthen the school year somewhat, in order to cover the required amount of work. This interruption has been cheerfully accepted by both the faculty and the students, although it has meant a greater amount of work on the part of both. An epidemic of mumps which occurred during February and March, also made it necessary for many to lose considerable school time. The attendance of the past year has been exceedingly gratifying, considering the unsettled condition of the times. At its highest it numbered 235, including many tuition pupils from the surrounding districts and towns. The graduating class will include some 31 students, of which 17 are boys. The personnel of the faculty has been somewhat changed this past year. Miss Kathleen Lucy has been added to the English stall to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Miss Hiles; Miss Ruth Mann has charge of Biology; Miss Nelle Dee, Domestic Science; and Miss Clementine Regan, Music. French has been substituted for German in the curriculum, and is in charge of Miss Detwiler. Typewriting and Shorthand were popular studies among the Seniors, 20 being enrolled. A credit is now offered for each, in place of the credit and a half formerly given for both. Several revised textbooks have been introduced in the past year to take the place of the older ones, especially in the History classes. The Commercial course seemed to be the most popular, as it has by far the largest enrollment. Athletics, especially football, have suffered considerably the past season; however, the basketball season was a great success, while the girls manifested the same interest in the indoor sport as in the past. It is probable that a baseball team will be organized while our chances in track seem exceptionally bright. Social activities were eliminated as much as possible, as it was necessary to devote more time to the daily school work. However, many pleasant class gatherings were held, especially by the upper classes'. The Commercial Club, too, held its regular meetings beginning with the January number, and the Forum Debating Society enjoyed many pleasant meetings and hikes. The year of 1918-19 was marked by the earnest and intensive study on the part of the pupils and by the cheerful aspect taken by all in the face of such disagreeable interruptions. In the class of 1919, on the basis of the average grades for the four years, the following honors have been awarded: Valedictorian ................................... Doris Fehn Salutatorian ............................... Minnie Prance 3rd Honors ...........................................Clemens Nitsche In the lower classes the following pupils have received the highest grades for the current year: JUNIOR 1st, Victor Boeker; 2nd, Bessie Ryder; SOPHOMORE 1st, Ethel Wentz; 2nd, Mary McLean; FRESHMEN 2nd, Louise Wentz; 3rd, Lee Little. 3rd, Carolyn Considine. 3rd, Evelyn Bovver. 1st, Grace Cunningham; Page Thirty-oneNUIIIIIiniHinillllinillllllliiiiiiiiiiiiHItlllinilllllllllllllMIIIIIMnilHIIMIIIMMnilllllllliniinMIllMIIIIMIIMIMIIIIIIIIIIinilinilMIIMIIinMIlllllllMIIHIIIIMIIIIItnilllllllinHMIlllMIMniHNIiiiiMllliMIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIMlinHIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIilllMIMIIMIIM 1919 T H E T IGER .............. iiiihiii....................................................................................

Thomas Head Vice President ..Mable Unger Treasurer ........... Irene Fruit Increasing popularity and membership have marked the growth of this club since its organization in 1917. Under the enthusiastic and efficient direction of Miss Davis, it has prospered until it is the most widely known organization of the High School. It now has an enrollment of one hundred seventy-nine active members. These are not all students of E. H. S., for many of the members come from the alumni. Educational and social advantages have been successfully combined in the club. At the monthly meetings, oratorical, literary, and musical talent have been displayed on the programs and the addresses given by prominent business men have proven of great help to the members in gaining an insight into the business world. After the program is concluded, the members are entertained by the hosts and hostesses of the month, and the rest of the evening is spent in a social way. The two breaks in the school year due to the influenza epidemics curtailed the activities of the club somewhat. Nevertheless, the interest of the members and the supervising teacher made it possible for the club to continue to be an active factor in the school life and to successfully follow the precedent set by the past years. Each year greater interest is taken in the Commercial Club, because outsiders as well as students' are beginning to see its real worth to them and to the community. 1 he High School can well be proud of its commercial department for it is an honor to the school and reflects on the ability of the instructor. Each year commercial students fill responsible positions in the business' world and in most cases give an excellent account of themselves. The Commercial Club is an aid in the development of the commercial student and is therefore an almost indispensable asset to the High School. “THE FORUM” President ...................................... -.Edwin Stokes Vice President ......................................Doris Fehn Secretary-Treasurer ............................... Mabel LINGER This is the “Forum’s” second year of existence, however it has so greatly increased in membership and in value as a literary society, that it will probably become permanent. Originally meetings were held even' two weeks', but on account of outside interruptions in the school year they were limited to monthly programs'. 1 he meetings, aside from the social viewpoint, were very instructive to the participants and entertaining to the audience. It is the only club of its kind in the school and with another year, under the guidance of Miss Fiegenbaum, should progress by leaps and bounds.

OFFICERS President Christine Ballweg J'ice Pres. ..............Lucille Dippold Secretary ............TavernE Poe Treasurer ...................Axel Anderson The Gregg Club, an entirely new organization in E. H. S., was organized by M iss Davis during May 1918. There are fifty-five members, comprising the shorthand classes of ’17, ’18, and ’19. Its purpose is three fold: first, to enable all members to continue their shorthand practice and keep up their speed; second, for mutual helpfulness; and third to render willing stenographic service to the school. It has been fulfilling its mission, for it has been especially helpful to those members who do not require a great deal of shorthand, by helping them keep up their practice, and it has also been instrumental in securing positions for many of its members. Monthly meetings are held at the homes of the various members where shorthand dictation is given for a short time by the director, Miss Davis. Along with its business activities, the club has enjoyed many social gatherings and hikes, the most memorable of which was the banquet given by the older members upon the admittance of the class of 1919.

It was organized for the purpose of taking snapshots' for the annual, and throughout the year, under the leadership of its energetic president, members of the club have gone on hikes and trips for the sole purpose of obtaining “snaps.” We take this space to thank the Photo Club for the aid they have given us in an artistic way, and it our hope that they will find it possible to re-organize next year MUSIC Under the new director, Miss Regan, music in the High School has kept on its tuneful way. The chorus is composed of a large number of students who conscientiously entertain the whole building three times a week. In addition to the usual operatic selections, the best variety of popular music has also been studied this year, and the course is deservedly popular. The orchestra has also been reorganized, and has many young recruits. The members are practicing assiduously, and it is proving itself a genuine High School orchestra, a worthy successor of its predecessors. Lender the direction of Miss Regan, six of the High School boys have met regularly for special practice. Two, Bruce Tuxhorn and Victor Boeker, were members of last year’s quartette, and four, Rudolph Stolte, Lester Brockmeier, Walter Stulken. and Frank Gusewelle, are newly discovered musical geniuses. Their efforts have always been enthusiastically received and thoroughly enjoyed. Dont’s for Male Beginners in Dancing Don’t—Be light on your feet and heavy on your partners. Don’t—Bump into every couple on the floor and then tell your partner you can’t steer her straight. Don’t—Dance a one step to “Home Sweet Home.” Don’t—Imitate a dog trot for a fox trot. Don’t—Step on your own feet trying fancy steps. Don’t—Use your partners arm for a ppmp handle or a rake. Don’t—Tell every girl she is the best dancer you ever danced with, for you may unwittingly be the cause of many female feuds and possibly a few deaths. —One Who Knows.

H. S. this year, though the faculty saw to it that the other side of life was not to be neglected. It began quite at the first of the year—the chain of good times. First the Forum Debating Club, considered by far the most important organization in the school (that is, by its members) started the ball rolling by giving a “hike." Such a hike as it was, too!—Center Grove is quite an ideal place, you know. A scrumptious campfire—scrumptious eats, to say nothing of the superfluously scrumptious cook, all went to make up the royal good time. After mess, we all gathered round the campfire, and watched a very unique wedding take place, after which the bridegroom—a certain Junior lad, who is particularly noted for his inability to keep out of the limelight—entertained us with his oratory. The fire began to die down about 9 P.M. and the gang started back to town. After that—the rock road, twinkling stars, the pale moonlight, murmuring breezes and pleasant company—u-u-um! It was altogether too romantic! And that was only the beginning! EXIF B1NNEY! Such a sorrow and sighing! Williamson’s going away. And to express their sorrow, the Seniors gave him one last night of merrymaking in old E. H. S. On the whole it was a very decent farewell party, if we do say it ourselves. Many “sell” games were played, Mr. Sayre being chief, “sold”— and the bunch of us staid till nigh onto mo’ning (yes, we did! it was a long while after ten!) when we bid Binney our last farewells and good wishes and departed. MOST of the members of the Commercial Club met in the Auditorium on November 27, for the first meeting of the Club this year. As usual, an excellent program was rendered, but it was in the Gym afterwards that the main feature of the evening, the initiation of new members was “pulled off.” 1 he Boxing Contests were regular prize fights—rather more prize than fight, however! 1 here was one—well, it was unique to say the least—and who but the boxers knew the deepness of the principle involved! Another thing—they didn't turn the lights out at ten. H joy! Oh boy! Where do we go from here”—was the merry tune the I 1 Basketball Girls sang as they made their way down Hillsboro Road that evening after school. The two Basketball Camps had decided that to get properly organized, a little jollification was in order, so this particular sunshiny day at 3:45 most of the members of the two camps and their teacher friends were seen making their way down Hillsboro Road. Grainey Woods being their destination, at 3:45 most of the members of the two camps and their teacher friends were seen began to disappear. The small white cubes were much in demand, and intense excitement prevailed when a seven-pronged stick burned, wasting fourteen marshmallows. The fire was so nice, we couldn’t leave it, so we all gathered round and lifted our tuneful voices in air, to the accompaniment of one lone ukelele! By and by the moon came out and the teachers decided we had best start for home, so, headed by the “uke,” our little, though pompous procession marched triumphantly on to the city and dispersal! Page Thirty-seven 1919 THE TIGER iiniiiitHiinMiMiHMiiiiminiiMiMmiMimiiiiiiiiiiMiiMiiiMMiiiiiinmiHiiiMiiHiMmiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiniiiiiiiiiiinMmMiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiMiimiiiiiiiniii RIGHT or wrong, we had them!—those Senior parties at the Chapter House. There’s only one word that will describe them, and we’ve looked the dictionary through and through and cannot find it! Common speakable words' fail!—but we can say that all things taken together, they were the best thing that struck E. H. S. this year—outside the Faculty, additional studies, and a few other necessary exceptions. Each of them was a prose poem, in itself, although there was the one which lacked the punch—thereby hangs a tale, and many warranted suspicions—! But we were in such happy frames of mind, we could forgive even that and go on our way rejoicing. IT is the Juniors, you know, who are noted for following closely, aye, too closely, in the footsteps of the Seniors. This came near being “too closely,” but it turned out all right in the end. On February 13, the Juniors held a Valentine's Party at the Chapter House. There was the dearest Valentine Box, and the chaperon, it is said, was presented with the greatest and most gorgeous token of all. When, oh when, will the day come when we can find a satisfactory chaperon—one, that is, that doesn’t “cop” all the attention and spoil it for the girls? They didn’t “carry on” too awfully late and departed at a respectable hour, each one putting in his appearance at school the next morning. EVERY year we rack our brains and tear out hair, trying to master Shakespeare, or rather, trying not to let it master us, and this time, both the Juniors and Seniors worked so diligently and so faithfully that the teachers decided that to keep us from overtaxing, they had better induce us to take a little recreation, so they each planned a theatre party! The Seniors attended the Jefferson on March 10 to see Mantell—master of the situation without any hair-pulling—while the Juniors theatred on Friday, the 14th. The effects which all this had on the different members of the parties were many and varied. For some, it had a subdued and quieting effect—and they actually dreamed their way home—yes, it was the sleeper, but—. Others had been inspired to immediate action, and most boisterously displaying their dramatic ability, entertained the crowd on the trip home. The Juniors became so hilarious that the conductor was forced to use most stringent methods to preserve order in the “omnibus.” The pupils returned, taking up their study of Shakespeare with such renewed interest and vigor, that their respective teachers firmly resolved that ( “With the work, a little fun, Makes all of the pupils As bright as the sun.” SHORTHAND proves a blessing once in a while! It did this time! It was on the twenty-second of March that the Gregg Club gave our Shorthand Class that banquet—a real banquet, too,—all blue and white, with flowers, dim lights, doilies ’n everything. The toasts were the best ever—the “two Irishmen” being quite worked to death. (Said toasts were all some of the toasters enjoyed in the way of refreshment that evening, for the strain upon their nerves was entirely too great.) ’The waitresses and their contributions were the “cute little things, though” —and there was one of the members, yes, we must admit it, of our class, who worked that old, old scheme of double portion on them—and then, ate it all himself, too.

They considered it absolutely necessary for a “man” of any standing whatsoever, to wear the nifty little “derby,” hence the origin of their name. Our old friend, Ikey, was elected president, unanimously, and it was his duty to see that all the derbies fit and that the walking sticks were made of the right material. It was not considered necessary to have a treasurer, as all the members were either broke or badly bent. The “nifty twelve” soon grew tired of their renewed style and so the “Derby Club” passed out of existence. EDITORIAL About every other year, a few “hard guys” get exceedingly desperate, and after holding a secret session, decide to commit some crime. What is this crime? Why placing all the books on the assembly stage, of course. It seems like this diversion would get a little monotonous, as it has been indulged in ever since Bartlett was a prep. If it is to be continued in future years we would suggest that the culprits throw their own books out of the window, instead of placing them in neat piles that immediately catch the vigilant eye of the faculty and place said desperadoes in a bad predicament. TRACK Great interest was displayed in track this year due to the fact that so many promising athletes were unearthed. Among the “finds” were: Kane in the running broad. Stiren in the standing broad, Wood in the 440, and Warnock and McNeilly in thf sprints. Early in the season an inter-class meet was held in which the team representing the Seniors and Sophomores “copped” the majority of the points. On Saturday, May 11, the annual inter-scholastic meet was held at Charleston. E. H. S. was represented by Southard, Kane, and Wood. Southard, who had previously established the record in the 100 and the 220, made the 50 in 5 3-5 sec., tieing the present record. Kane placed fifth in the running broad, while Wood, due to a little hard luck, was unable to finish the 440. E. H. S. succeeded in tieing for third against some 30 opponents, which is an exceedingly enviable record. The county meet will he held on May 23, at Granite City. We have every reason to believe, judging from the initial showing of the team, that old E. H. S. will bring home the banner along with the biggest part of the “bacon.” Page Thirly-nincKlUO{ 2f)VJ •IIMIIIMIIIIMIIMINailMIUIIIIIIIIMlinillllllMIIIIIIIIIIMIMIIIIMMiaillllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIiaillllllllllllllllllllllllUIIIIIIIIIIMIIIMIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIMIIIIIIIIMIMIIIIIIII 3 3 O I J, 3H,L 6161 IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM 0002010002010202010189000002000023012302014802000102100102015302230100010100000100000200010200020201000100020200000201230201020201. uo-Xjjoj J 'vc{ umimimmimiiimimiimiimmimimim MIMinllMIMIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIinilHIIIMIIIIIIIIIIHIHmiHMIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllUIIIIMMIIMIIIIMIIMIIIIMIIHHIlHI 6161 M 3 O I X 3 H X llllinillllllllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIMMIIIlinillllllllllllininillMIIIIIIIIIIIUIIMtIIINIIlnllllMIUlMnlllMllllinllllllllllllllMIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIinilllllllllllllllllllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIMIMIMIIIIIMItIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIMIIIIIinllltlllllllin mi 11111 iii 11111111111111 hi ii ii i uni mi 11111 mi mi mi 11 ii 111111 mi 11| 111| || mi .......mini.. 1919 THE TIGER iimmmnmiiiiiiiiimiimmiiMmMiMiiiiMimniiMiiminiimmnimmminmimiiHimmimimmmmii Football 1 he 1918 football season in E. H. S. was rather “short and sweet,” for after a comparatively slow start all chances for a winning team were lost when we were forced to discontinue football on account of the influenza epidemic, after playing onlv one game. However, it may truthfully be said that E. H. S. never had a more promising eleven than that of ’18. 1 heir lack of weight was more than made up for by their aggressiveness and winning spirit. Never before has there been such a feeling of good fellowship between the players and the coach. All, save a few knockers, were willing to work, and work hard, in order that E. H. S. might have a successful team. This spirit manifested itself in the game with Alton. Outplayed at all angles' of the game our players never gave up and although defeated, 41-0, they were fighting just as hard at the closing whistle as at the start. “THOSE YELLS” Watch old Stiernie lead those yells Smashing yells! What a great amount of pep Their vehemence foretells. In the gym on any night They will make the whole team fight When we give with all our might Thie High School yells. Hear the echo of the yells Through the hall, As he stands upon the stage In front of all. First he leads with Rickety-I Ending up with Ki-Yi-Yi ; And the sounds rise to the sky Of the High School yells. Oh those yells, yells, yells! What a great amount of noise Their energy foretells.

T HE TIGER 1919 iiiiiiiiiMHiliiiHiiiiiMiniiiuiiiinuMiiiiiMiiiiiMiiiiiimiiiiuiMiHiiiiiiiiiniMiiiiaiiiinniMtiiinMiiMi Basketball The two ousstanding features of the 1918-19 basketball season were the support given the team by the student body, and the fighting spirit shown by the team. The yelling of the past season has never been equalled in the history of the school, either in volume or in organization. The school was back of the team in defeat as well as in victory. Much credit is due to the excellent directing of our cheer-leader. The team showed their appreciation of this support by developing into the “scrappiest” if not the best team that ever represented E. H. S. That this is true is proven by the fact that most of the games were won by close scores and in a good many cases, (especially at Benld), our boys had to overcome a large lead in order to win. Everyone will remember the first game with Alton, in which our team gave the best exhibition of basketball ever seen on our floor, holding Alton to a score of 22-16. This was probably the closest “shave” Alton had during the entire season, for they seemed to have the faculty of sweeping all their opponents before them. In the game with O’Fallon it was necessary to allow five minutes extra, in order to play out a tie, our boys gaining the decisive basket in the last two minutes of play. The one sad feature of the season was the two defeats at the hands of Granite. We had hoped to win both, but the team was in a slump on both occasions. Nevertheless, we still think our team the better of the two. The team cannot well be considered singly because they played as a unit and not individually as stars. However, it might be well to mention each separately in his respective position: Captain Wood at forward played a hard consistent game throughout the season and was always good for a “basket” when most needed; Westerholt, playing also at forward, played a good running game, and although it took him quite a while to get his “eye,” he was always ready to receive a pass. 1 he position of center was filled by almost every member of the team; it was our one weak point. However, Kellermann, who started the season, should be of great value with another year’s experience. The guards—Smith, Dunlap, and Hlad, all practically new men, more than made up for their inexperience by their tenacity and aggressiveness. Nor must we forget Lueker, Tuxhorn and Gusewelle, the three first string subs. “Scottie” always played a good game at forward, and Gusewelle will be remembered for his shooting at Alton; Tuxhorn proved to be a regular utility man. for he played center, guard and forward creditably. With Smith, Dunlap, Lueker, and Tuxhorn, together with some of the second team “stars,” chances for a winning team next year seem very bright.

H. S. are enthusiastic athletes. The success of the camps is due largely to the interest and help of the directors, Miss Caldwell and Miss VVittich, who have led the girls in this work. May the love for athletics never diminish and the girls continue to show true sportsmanship! THE SPRING INTER-CLASS TOURNAMENT The inter-class basketball tournament, which is a time honored affair, took place on March 12 and 13. The “dope” was not upset as it was last year, for the Seniors went into the game to win, and were never over confident, as was the case in the last tournament. On the first night the Seniors defeated the Sophmores by a large score, while the Juniors had little trouble in trimming the “Freshies.” On the second night the Seniors easily defeated the Juniors, while the Sophmores triumphed over the Freshmen. On Monday, March 17, the Seniors simply “walked over” the “All Stars,” who were composed of represntatives from all classes. Thus, the Seniors proved their superiority in basketball as in all other things.

The high school can be proud of their coach for his achievements of the past year alone, for out of a batch of green material he succeeded in giving her one of the best basketball teams in years. Everyone remarked at their splendid team work, which was in itself a true reflection on the coaching they had received. There was also a close bond of friendship and good feeling existing between the players and the coach which manifested itself throughout the season. The second team was another factor in the building of the team, for without the opposition received at their hands the first team would not have developed the fighting spirit which so characterized their play. It is our hope and wish that those fellows who came out every night, only to give E. H. S. a winning team by being the “dubs” for the coach and the first team, will be more successful next year and land a place on the first five. RESULTS OF THE FIRST NIGHT’S BASEBALL PRACTICE.

'I'HE FACULTY Yea, though I walk through the valley of the Shadow of Death I have them with me. They blast my wildest day dreams and haunt my few short hours of sleep. They are interested in my social career, they probe into my darkest musings, they display phenomenal interest in my physical welfare, my soul salvation, my education, “N’everything.” Yea, though I enter that Sink hole of Iniquity, the “Idle Hour,” I meet the Faculty; if I flee to the sanctity of the House of God, I meet the Faculty. In the broad highways of Life, in the narrow ways of Vice, 1 am eternally confronted by one or more of the Faculty. Mother quotes passages from their conversation; Father speaks of them as a long suffering and horribly imposed upon group of “near saints,” until I fear that all is lost. Yea, then I go forth alone, unheeded and list to natures teachings and to the creed of seven and Eleven. ’E’en though I am despondent and sick at heart, I am cheered by this one thought: What if I should withdraw unheeded by the living? Tomorrow the world will know of my departure, yea, all that breathe will know of my destiny. I was missed in the roll call, my parents were acquainted with this fact, and I am forced to again face the faculty.

Junior (reading theme) : “After the wheat is harvested it must stand in the shock about two weeks before it is ready for threshing.” Miss Lucy (innocently) : “Why, don’t they thresh the wheat before they harvest it?” The Tiger: An educational and necessary commodity with which every purchaser finds fault. Miss Lucy: “Name one of Shakespeare’s tragedies?” Freshie—“Silas Marncr.” Miss Caldwell—“What is ‘lucre?’ ” Ed.

IQ19 THE TIGER ............................................................................ THE MUMPS—BY ONE WHO HAS HAD THEM The mumps are huge extensions on the jaws which make your head look like a pumpkin and feel a lot worse. Every one thinks they are funny (except the victim) and laugh at them, and tell you how cute you look. You in turn wish they’d get ’em so you could take your turn at laughing. Some times they don’t hurt—but when you eat—Oh my! Then you’d rather starve or go on a milk diet. Your mother wraps your head up in flannels till you resemble Old Mother Hubbard. She then sits you by a good warm fire (if you are able to sit up at all) until it gets you serious-minded thinking of the Great Hereafter, and then you decide to reform so you can sweep the Golden Stairs, where it will at least be cool. She thinks probably you have just a swelling in your jaws and gives you the old mump tester, otherwise known as the sour pickle. Well, if you have ever let a piece of hard candy skid on a tooth that has just been “killing” you, you will get a vague idea of the feeling you undergo in trying to give the pickle free passageway. It’s a worse punishment than hanging, because you can feel it longer. I’m going to see that all the pickle factories follow in the wake of John Barleycorn after July 1st—that’s all! In conclusion, I’d like to warn those who have never had the mumps to steer clear of them; they might look funny and cute, but looks are sometimes deceitful and “things are not always what they seem.” There was a big guy named “Greaser,” Who they say, put the “freeze” in Freezer; For whenever he laughed, You could feel a cold draught So I guess he wasn’t some wheezer. Verna Coultas: “Don’t you think Sousa is a great conductor?” Mabel Unger: “I don’t remember ever riding on his car.” Frieda Giese: “How do you suppose apes crack the hard shells of the hard nuts they eat?” Henry Dierkes: “With a monkey wrench, of course.” Art: “'Fake dancing lessons! Well, I guess not! There are too many other ways by which I can make a fool of myself.” Gladys: “Yes, but you have tried all of those.” Arthur Capstick: “Do you know Poe’s “Raven?” James Burns: “Why, no, what’s the matter with him?” Sham Flynn noting a blister on Clem Nitsche’s finger, was heard to remark, “That’s a bad looking sty you got there, Clem.” Miss Fiegenbaum—“Are you sure that this is a purely original essay?” Russell Southard—“Yes mam, but you may possibly run across a word or two of it in the dictionary.” Walter Hess: “Tomorrow’s my birthday.” Miss Slavback: “Why, what a strange coincidence. It’s mine, too.” Walter: “Well gee!—How’d you ever get so much bigger’n me then.” Page Fifty-six•llllllllltttlllllimillimilllMIIIII)MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIimimillllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIHIimillllllllllll'illlllllllllHIIIIIIII.... THE TIGER 1919 ........................................................................................ STATISTICS Compiled by the famed statistician, Christopher Hellrung, unably assisted by Henry (Shakespeare) Brunworth, after hours of exhaustive research. 'They have made it known that: 1. If the value of the chewing gum to be found under the desks in the Assembly and in the classrooms, was expressed in dollars and cents, it would amount to $50.13)4. 2. That the shoe leather wasted by students walking to and from the waste basket during one school year would amount to $201.17. 3. If the air used by students to express excuses for their failure to come out for athletics, was put effectively to use, it would keep Mary Heuter’s and Russell Southard’s tires inflated for two years. 4. If J. Stieren had started singing at the age of 1, he would now be in Grand Opera; but as it is he will never make more than a “Ballyhoo” in a carnival. 5. That the wood represented by the pencils sharpened away in one year by certain studious members of E. H. S., would build a modern dog house with all improvements, for “Greasers” hound. 6. 'That there are 999,999,999,999 words in the dictionary, used in the assembly (if you don’t believe it count them yourself). 7. That the pickle industry slackened during the epidemic of mumps to the extent that 333,333,333 pickles spoiled due to fermentation. 8. If Fat Campbell weighed about 50 more pounds, he’d be a heavyweight. (N. B.—It is possible that we have made a few slight errors, so we suggest that each one go over our results carefully, after compiling a set of his own.— I he Authors). LINES TO AMBROSIA Ambrosia to the stand did go, To get the “famous juice”; But when she got about half way, She turned the bottle loose. But as you all are well aware, Ambrosia’s very spry; And deftly reaching down her arms. She caught it on the fly.

That person is the “Tiger” Staff’s office boy. We take this space to extend our deepest thanks to this said person, for his willing services and his helpful suggestions. Whenever any work was to be done the office boy was right there to give instructions. He was ever faithful and prompt, and his favorite diversion was to sit at the desk of his employer with his feet perched thereon.

Bell 91 IT ISN’T YOUR SCHOOL—IT’S YOU If you want to go to the kind of a school Like the kind of a school you like, You needn’t go to some other town, Or start on a long, long hike. You’ll only find what you left behind For there’s nothing that’s really new; It’s a knock at yourself When you knock your school; It isn’t your school—it’s you. Live schools are made by those not afraid Lest somebody else gets ahead ; When everyone works, and nobody shirks, You can raise a school from the dead. And if you will try, and pull for your High Your classmates will aid you too; Then your school will be what you want to see; It isn’t your school—it’s you. Page Eighty-threeIn Conclusion WE have tried to make this, the sixth volume of the “Tiger,” as interesting and novel as possible. In passing judgment on our production, you must consider the fact that a High School Annual must, like all periodicals and magazines, contain a certain amount of statistical and uninteresting matter that is absolutely indispensable. It has been our aim throughout to eliminate as much of the “dead matter” as possible, and to give to you as interesting a book as our limited talents will permit. We ask of you, who have been made a party to a joke, or mentioned in any humorous way, whatsoever, to consider this mention in the proper light, for we do not wish any hard feelings arising from the appearance of any article in this book. We, also, take this space to thank all who have contributed in any way towards the completion of the annual, and we feel that if our book is a success, it will be greatly due to the co-operation given us by all the students. After all, the “Tiger” represents the entire school and not the Senior Class alone, as some have been led to believe, therefore, all should feel a personal responsibility in its successful completion. To the Editor of the 1920 “Tiger,” Whoever He May Be: You little know what confronts you, my friend, and the sooner you realize this fact, the better off you'll be. This is the biggest job you will ever tackle in your High School course, and take it from me, it means work. It looks fine from the outside, but the interior isn't quite so pleasant. Editing a Itujh School Annual is not a High School Honor, hut a High School Job! Be prepared to receive knocks from everybody in High School and, also, be prepared to return these knocks. Do not be surprised if you happen to “flunk” now and then in some subject because you haven't time to study, which, of course, will not excuse you. In short, be prepared for any exigency that may arise, (which means that you must be a “Jack of All Trades.”) I don’t want to frighten you, my friend, but only wish to warn you of what you’re up against. Get down to work early, and you'll be successful, and then you’ll be the idol of the school while you'll forget all about the knocks and low grades dealt out by the unfeeling faculty. Yours for a successful 1920 “Tiger.” Page Eighty-four Editor, 1919 “Tiger.” ■1  1
