We love to sing of our Senior Class Of our noble lads and lasses,
W ith faces bright and hearts all right
No other can surpass us.
The ties that bind together No power can ever sever,
For we’ll be true to the Senior-Crew,
To the Maroon and White forever.
He conquers all who conquers self Is our Seniors worthy motto,
We strive to win and conquer sin For character tomorrow.
We’re all in love with our school home
And prize her high endeavor,
And we’ll be true to the Senior Crew
To the Maroon and White forever.
When we have left these dear old halls,
Upon our graduation,
Another throng shall sing their song
Of loyal adoration.
The memory of our High School life
Shall never fade, no never,
And we’ll be true to the Senior Crcw
To the Maroon and White forever.

Its building is not the largest,
Its class-rooms not the best;
Its pupils few and modest,
Its faculty no jest;
But all its sons are loyal And deem it no disgrace Through thick and thin to sail right in And to boost for the place;
And so I sing its praises,
Although it’s not the best,
I love it still and always will—
My dear old
Its girls they are the sweetest In all the country ’round.
Its premises the neatest That ever could be found;
Its faculty the smartest,
With hearts of civic pride—
Its boys they are the bravest Of any countryside;
So when you talk about it,
Don’t class it with the rest;
Its in a class all of its own,
Is my old
Some places are much bigger—
More gay and grand and smart;
They cut a wider figure
In wealth and style and art;
But it has its own features,
And let us not forget.
Though scattered far where’er we are, We owe it all a debt;
So if in after years of life
You’ve made a great success,
Don’t overlook that little nook—
Your dear old

Do you remember the Junior Class That entered E. H. S.
In the month of September in seventeen As a bunch of little preps?
Remember how flightly and shy we were When the bells rang out for class,
And how we jumped and got tangled up?
But that is now all past.
We wished for credits, and credits we had At the end of a long, long year;
And with great fame, and hearts that were glad, A class of Sophomores we appeared.
But most of our wishes fled in air—
Yet the best came true at last.
When we lived and became in old E. H. S.
The mighty Junior Class.

Two years ago there came forth in this High School, a new class, conceived in goodness, and firmly resolved to do their best.
They were engaged in great examinations, testing whether their class, or any class, so exposed, could long endure. They met in the great Assembly and planned to leave great honors behind them. They thought that it was altogether fitting and proper that they should do this. But, in a larger sense, they found it difficult to try to bestow honors on their class. The brave faculty who struggle here, fixed their grades far above their poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what they said here but it can never forget what they did here. It is for the pupils to come, to be here dedicated to the unfinished work which the Sophomore class has thus far so nobly advanced. Let it be resolved that their work has not been in vain, that the tasks of the faculty, by the faculty and for the faculty will always be remembered, and that the memory of the Sophomore class shall not perish from the earth.

The nineteen-nineteen Freshman t lass has come to our school to stay,
To amuse the Sophs, and Juniors, and while the hours away,
With talcs of years of study
in the room across the way,
Where the teacher in her glory
used to raise her hand and say “Now we’ll turn to page eleven,”—
and be mindful what you re bout, ’Cause this teacher’s going to flunk you if you don’t watch out.
We were not so green at adding
and our multiplying was fair,
But that Hebrew kind of language
makes the surface ’ncath your hair Feel just like you’re getting chilly
on a night when lights are out And the goose-flesh keeps a-creeping and the shivers shiver out And you wonder—honest to goodness— if she’ll really flunk you out.
In the morning things went dandy and you wonder why the day Couldn’t keep a-bringing pleasures
such as writing notes and play;
Why a little talk and laughter
in the English room should be Such a breach of High School etiquette no- one could really see.
But it didn’t make “no difference”
and the truth would sure come out, That the tcacher’d surely flunk you if you didn’t watch out.

N writing this book, the Edwardsville High School Annual, it is our aim to show, not only the social, athletic and humorous side, but also the advancement of Edwardsville High School. It is with this view in mind that we give the following record of the closing school year.
The school year 1919-1920 marks the beginning of the ten months term. Following the decision of the Board of Education this will from now on be the length of a regular school wear.
This term has also been a very regular one. We have lost practically no time on account of epidemics of any kind. During the entire year but three school days were lost, and those on account of lack of heat, due to the coal shortage.
The highest attendance of the past year has reached two hundred-sixty-five, a gain of thirty over the preceding year. Like the previous years, among this number are included many tuition pupils from the surrounding districts. The graduating class is much larger than that of last year being composed of twenty boys and twenty-five girls.
The personnel of the faculty has been greatly changed this year. Miss Bartels and Miss Mann have charge of the English department, which formally was under Miss Ficgenbaum and Miss Lucy; Miss Woods has control of the greater part of the History Classes; Miss Lord has charge of the French and Latin Classes and Mr. Stallings of Biology. The failures for the year have run about 13%.
The Commercial Course is again the most popular among the Seniors, as more than half of them have chosen Shorthand and Typewriting. This has made it necessary for the school to purchase four more typewriters.
The students have shown much interest in the school clubs, through which they have been able to display their talent. The Commercial Club and the Sflatford Literary Club have been very active, having their monthly meetings through the entire year. Miss Regan’s earnest work to further music has been helpful and appreciated by the school. The orchestra has always been-willing to help in any entertainment.
The Athletic teams of this year have had unusually good support from the school; this with the able direction of Mr. Norris has caused the teams to make a particularly good showing.
The Senior honors based on their four years work, is to be found on page 12 of this Annual.
In all the classes the following pupils have attained the highest grades for the current year.

The Commercial Club, with increasing activities and membership, has now entered into its fourth year of existence. With Miss Davis as its efficient guide and director, the club has become one of the most popular and efficient organizations of the school. The enrollment now consist of 155 members— 100 active members and the remaining number being composed of Alumni.
The monthly meetings of the club are not only valuable in advancing the business education of its members, but are also entertaining. Much of the talent of the school is displayed in these meetings. The Music and English departments have assisted in making the meetings more entertaining. Frequently Miss Regan leads the club in a song, or the Seniors give orations or read essays. Moreover the business men of Edwardsville have readily responded to requests for addresses on commercial subjects when asked by the committee, and thus the school and community have been brought closer together.
In the arrangement of the programs much variety has been displayed. The December meeting carried with it the Christmas spirit, and like-wise a special meeting was held February 13 to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. The programs did not conclude the meetings, but as in preceding years, a social time was spent in the gymnasium after which the members who were hosts and hostesses of the evening served refreshments.
The Commercial Club has always been a great aid to the school in furthering commercial work. This the school duly appreciates and we hope that the club will continue its good work among the pupils of E. H. S.

1 he Gregg Club organized in May 1918, by Miss Davis, composed of the shorthand classes of the last four years, has increased in popularity. At the monthly meetings shorthand dictation is given for a period of time by the instructor, Miss Davis. The three fold object of the club is always kept in mind. It seeks first, to enable all members to improve their speed in shorthand; second, it strives to foster good feeling and fellowship among its members; and third, to render stenographic services to the school.
The club enjoys social gatherings, in addition to its business activities. Each Spring a banquet is given to the members of the shorthand class who desire to be admitted to the club.

You’ve often heard that “Freshmen can’t do anything.” Who, but Freshies organized the Stratford Literary Club in 1917 under the supervision of Miss Hiles? And what is a high school without a literary club?
As a Freshman club the Stratford was a great success. Two weekly newspapers were written throughout the year and some very interesting literary programs were held. Because of this success it was made a permanent club of E. H. S. Owing to the influenza epidemic in 1918-19 little
was done to further the success of the club, with the exception of several hikes.
At the beginning of the third year of its experience, Miss Lord kindly consented to take charge, and under her supervision the club has profited. The high school was delighted with the presentation of a pageant and a play; hikes (of course) have not been forgotten; and interesting programs are always enjoyed by the members of the club.
In the early part of November, the Photo club was reorganized in order to continue its work of aiding the Tiger to obtain a variety of snap shots. Many hikes were planned and various groups of students have spent many jolly Sunday afternoons in carrying out this idea.
As before, music is popular among the students of E. H. S. Altho the boys were timid at first, the second semester found the music classes with many enthusiastic boys enrolled. New operatic selections have been studied this year with occasionally some popular music. At least, once a week the whole school has enjojed forty minutes of chorus work under Miss Regan’s direction.
The orchestra, has meetings weekly for practice and the school is proud to say that its work has not been in vain. At one time the orchestra gladly consented to play at the Wildey for a home talent play and of course it has done likewise for entertainments given at the school.

Early this year a call for volunteers for a Glee Club was made by our principal and music director. Many girls, otherwise too timid to appear before an audience, gladly volunteered for service when they heard that this was to be an exclusively girls organization. At the time of organization twenty-two members were enrolled. Due to the strict rules and regulations made concerning the payment of dues, the club has always been self-supporting. Only too seldom has this organization appeared before the public ; nevertheless it has always been busy. The Girls “Glee Club” has the best wishes of the entire school for its future success.

STRATFORD LITERARY CLUB.§ nri?tu
In the course of the nine months of drudgery, in order that we might forget grades, teachers, bawlings, we must have something doing so when anyone says, “How does a feed look to you,” or, “Hey, what would you put up for a party?” he at once becomes a popular fellow. This school year has not been any different from from others, thus when “Joy and Duty clashed, we let duty go to smash.” It is understood the Seniors should lead and they do in school work, grades, looks, and athletics, so why not in Society?
This year the Forum Debating Club, which is composed of Seniors and alumni members, one afternoon in early September hiked out to Center Grove Park. On the way out, the members indulged in joking, singing, and laughing; while Mary’s Ford carried the utensils and cats. Upon arrival there was the usual discussion as to who should build the fire, a mad scramble for sticks on which to roast the wieners, and a grand rush to cut the cake.
In the twilight Davis Canis entertained them with fancy dancing, cabaret singing, and a few witty and original sayings. After about an hour of fun, they once again enjoyed the rock roads and “pale moon-light.”
Page Thirty-nineTRIP TO GRANITE CITY.
There is one time during the school term, that the Seniors lose their dignity, the Freshies their affectedness and the Sophs and Juniors act natural, and that is on the Special bound for Granite City on the night of our annual B. B. battle.
There are four episodes to that annual trip; the first occurring a few days before, when everyone intending to go puts his “John Henry” on the board, a few of our more distinguished and honorable members decorating theirs with a prefix and suffix.
Then on the evening when we’re “all fussed up” there is a twenty-five, fifty or maybe for some unfortunate, a hundred yard dash for the car. After we are inside each one tries a little Jack Dempsey stuff in getting a seat, then in a few minutes we are on our way, high in spirits and hopes. This year we did not hope in vain for we came home with the laurel wreath.
1 he third episode is the game. This year all three of our cheer leaders were present and with the help of Buster Olive, maybe we didn’t make ’em jealous! All the fans yelled, while the boys played and that is how we took the pep out of Granite City High School.
Oh yes, we had refreshments, not ice-cream and cake, or buns and wieners but just as the car was starting one of the “bunch” ran into the station and the proprietor of the lunch counter had a wild time juggling “Hersheys” and Dainty ham sandwiches over the counter. This feast was eaten as we were homeward bound.
THE BASKET BALL BOYS’ PARTY.
As the town clock was chiming out the tiny morning hours our Basket Ball heroes, each with the choice of his heart, were strolling homeward; their heads full of jokes, their hearts full of song, and their stomachs full of good eats.
Several Senior girls decided the boys deserved some kind of a “time,” so on I hursday evening, January 15, each boy with a fairer one could have been found at 511 N. Buchanan; but far be it from me to ruin this Annual by setting down what some were doing.
During the evening the better ones played games, joked and sang, some of the girls even attempted to make Vernon Castles out of the boys, but failed in the attempt.
1 he climax of the evening was reached when, just before the “eats,’ John Hensley had a sudden desire for a dress suit, footlights, button hole bouquets, etc., and announced, that he would sing. Everyone present was too astonished to refuse and they breathlessly awaited the end of “Darling Nellie Gray". He was heard to remark that he had done it hoping that all would leave and that he w'ould be left alone with the eats. I might say in passing that he and a few others were not present for roll call the next morning and Mr. Sayre, who lives next door was sick just a few' days later.
Nevertheless the evening w'as a very enjoyable one, and every one left with plans for another in the near future.
P tf c FortyTHE SENIOR AWAKENING.
Did you ever meet anyone who had as his slogan “Variety is the spice of life?” Well if you have not, you’ve missed something. This is the motto of a few of our original Senior boys, who carried out the slogan in a new manner of waking up the Senior Class. The awakening came on a Tuesday evening, February twenty-fourth, to be exact. The boys, dressed in old togs, assembled at Turner Hall, laden with cheese, bread, and cider. At the same hour the girls arrived at the Chapter House; but you would never have recognized them as Senior girls. There were among the crowd kindergarten students, Buster Brown or Peter Pan, society belles at twelve, milkmaids, and sunbonnet lassies—all between the age of six and twelve. Everybody was dressed to suit the occasion—from our tiniest to our highest Senior girls, and all conducted themselves accordingly, spending the evening in two year old fashion. The most popular games were “Ixmdon Bridge,” “Ring Around the Rosy,” “Pussy Wants a Corner,” and “Drop the Handkerchief.” After refreshments had been served, the lights were dimmed, and ghost stories were in order. It was thus that the “braver sex” found the girls huddling in the corners, too frightened to move. You can imagine the relief felt when the boys informed them that they had broken up the “stag” in order to escort the “little ones” home. Everybody vowed that class awakenings were too much fun to have at such long intervals, so they all decided to meet again in the near future.
“Polly in Politics,” a three-act comedy, which was presented by members of the Junior Class on Thursday evening, March 18, 1920, was a great success. The program began at eight o’clock with a few selections by the orchestra. The play which followed proved to be a charming bit of comedy, greatly appreciated by the audience. All the characters in the caste showed extraordinary ability in presenting their parts. Miss Mann deserves much credit for successfully coaching the members of the caste.
STRATFORD LITERARY CLUB PLAY
The Stratford Literary Club, under the management of Miss Lord, rendered a delightful program on the evening of February second. The first part of the program consisted of a Patriotic Pageant which gave the public a glimpse of the Spirit of ’76. The audience was next pleased by a delightful farce entitled “The Obstinate Family.” Although the Stratford Literary Club has given a number of programs for the club members only, this was the first time it showed the school what it could do. The school realizes that it will become one of the most active organizations in the E. PI. S., so its appearances are eagerly looked forward to.

D’ja ever kiss a girlie on the sly,

When you did, did she caress you,
Call the Lord above to bless you,

When believing that he should really treat you fair,
Did he smile upon you kindly
And then handle things quite blindly,
D’ja ever; so have I.

Did he say, “I’m sure you’re better I will send the bill by letter.”

Did you leave at half past nine And go back and say ’twas fine,

D’ja ever lend a friend a hard-earned ten With his promise that he’d pay it back again,
And while you waited feeling sore Did he try to borrow more,

D’ja ever pick a horse that really won
Who showed the world that he could really run,
Who when the odds were mighty fine Was the last to cross the line,

Who spent his life amassing an ungodly pile of gold,
Suddenly decide to will you everything he had
And then die just when you needed it to make you very glad,

STAUNTON AT EDWARDSVILLE.
1 he E. H. S. football season opened on Sept. 20, with Staunton High School at Edwardsville. The game was played on a water soaked field, and the Staunton team having already played several games had the advantage. The final score was 13-0 in Staunton’s favor, but our team showred that it had the material which only needed to be developed.
EAST ST. LOUIS AT EAST ST. LOUIS On Oct. 3, the team went to East St. Louis where it played the High School of that city. The team started like a whirlwind and rushed the ball to their two yard line where it was held. This took the “pep” out of our team and in the final six minutes of play East St. Louis made three touchdowns. Schwager played a “star” game at tackle.
COLLINSVILLE AT EDWARDSVILLE.
On Oct. 15th the game with Collinsville w'as played on the Lcclaire Campus. It could hardly be called a game. The members of our team were “sore” at some remarks made about them and were out to square themselves for the other two defeats. The score, 53-0, shows how well they did thU. The long runs of Dunlap, the line smashing of Tuxhorn and Hensley, and Boeker’s work at center featured.
STAUNTON AT STAUNTON.
Oct. 18th we played Staunton High at Staunton. We lost, although we outplayed their team. The ball was within the shadow of their goal during the whole of the fourth quarter. Staunton resorted to stalling and the crowd interrupted in such a way that the game w as saved for Staunton by a score of 7-6. Smith at end and Pfeiffer at guard played a great game.
Page Forty-jourLITCHFIELD AT EDWARDSVILLE.
On Oct. 25th, Home-Coming Day for Edwardsville, the largest crowd that ever witnessed one of our High School games, turned out. Edwardsville outplayed Litchfield in all respects, as the final score 47-7, shows. The outstanding event of the game was an 85 yard run for a touchdown from the kick-off by Hensley, made possible by the splendid interference given him by Boeker.
LITCHFIELD AT LITCHFIELD.
The following Saturday the team went to Litchfield where it played on a field literally covered with water. End runs and forward passes were impossible, so line plunges were the only plays that could be used. Bertelan playing his first game in the back-field, made many long gains, and W eber’s work at end and Stullken’s at guard was also very good. The score was 12-0 in favor of Edwardsville.
EAST ST. LOUIS AT EDWARDSVILLE.
Nov. 8th the team played East St. Louis on our own field. The home boys were taken off their feet at the start. East St. Louis made a touchdown and place-kick in the first quarter, while our boys were held scoreless. In the second half our team, by a series of line plunges and end runs rushed the ball down the field for a touchdown. The final score was 9-6. Schwager and Spitze played a great game.
BELLEVILLE AT BELLEVILLE.
The team went to Belleville on Nov. 15th, and, as before, their failure to get started during the first quarter caused their defeat. Belleville made a touchdown and drop-kick while the best our team could do was to score a safety. Lanham showed his ability as a football player in this game, and Shultz, who played as substitute end, also did very well.
BELLEVILLE AT EDWARDSVILLE.
Belleville played its return game the following Saturday, and our team went into the game determined to win. They went right through Belleville’s line and made a touchdown and safety the first half. In the third quarter. Lanham again starred at half-back, and Bertclan’s work at guard

The basket ball season of 1919-20 was wholly a success; the team losing only one game on the home floor and that to Granite City, a good, fast team.
Never before has a team of the Edwardsville High School received such backing as they had from the student body this season. Winning or losing, they were backing us until the final whistle blew.
One thing about the team of this season, it fought until the last, never quitting, never giving a game away.
The success of the team is due to our most faithful coach, M. G. Norris, who took the utmost pains to produce a winning team. He was always on the job ready to work with the team and without him it would have been almost impossible to succeed.
Dunlap, captain of the 1920 basket ball team, was one of the most conscientious captains that could be found. He jumped center, but played guard after the tip-ofif. Bob had the right basket ball spirit and would keep the team fighting even if it was losing. Bob always played a good, clean game, and was a good sportsman.
Hensley at forward was one of our best men. John was always in the game heart and soul. He could fight whether losing or winning. Although short, John covered every part of the floor and was always on the ball. He could make a basket from his knees when it was necessary to win the game, as he did when we played E. St. Louis.
Pnge Forty-sixHe will graduate this year, and we feel confident in saying that in losing him, E. H. S. will lose one of her best men.
Although Tuxhorn was placed at guard, his position was running center after the tip-ofif. Bruce always put a great deal of “pep’ ’into the game while he was in it. He could handle the ball admirably and was a good all-around player, except in one point: he did not have the wind to last a whole game. Bruce was a faithful worker and his loss will be felt by the entire school.
Without a doubt Smith is one of the best guards that E. H S. ever produced. Smith could always cover his man, or anybody’s else man if the ball chanced to come that way. A guard is usually not given due credit in a game because he has not the chance that a forward has to run up a long score against the opposing team. But let us stop to consider that a forward would never be able to make those points if it -were not for the work of the guard.
Lueker was always “Johnny on the spot” to receive the ball, and having it once in his hands, was nearly always sure to make a basket. Lueker was the mainstay of the team and could always be relied upon to make a basket when needed. As he had a keen eye and was an accurate shot, he seldom missed a free throw. Lueker will be in school next year, and we hope that his success and luck, if you choose to call it that, will again be with him.
Koogle and Schultz are two newly discovered stars, and this is their first year with the team. They were always loyal to the team and wild for a chance to make good. They proved very able subs and with them in the game next year the out-look for a championship team is very good. And last but not least we do not want to forget Stolte, our latest discovery. Stolte showed his ability as a basket ball player at the tournament, and his chances to be a star in the future are excellent.

Holding her close to him, he gazed into the unfathomable depths of her gazelle-like eyes.
Acute anxiety was expressed in every line of her face. Ever and anon a sigh seemed to rend her being with its intensity; and she gazed into his face as though she would read his very soul.
For many minutes tnus they stood, neither speaking, each gazing—intensely gazing-—into the other's eyes.

EXAM TIME ’Tis the night before exams, and all through the school,
Not one of the girls is breaking the rule;
For each is trying with might and with main To add an idea to the store in her brain.
’Tis the morn of exams, how sad to relate,
Each girl is waiting some terrible fate;
With a frown on her brow, with an ache in her heart.
And nerves all a quiver to her doom she’ll depart.
It is the night after, what a sigh of relief Away with all books, away with all grief;
But wait just a minute, her spirits have sunk,
For back comes her paper with just one word “flunk.”

If death should visit your loved ones, you would want to be in a position to tenderly care for rather than merely dispose of their mortal remains.
Mausoleum burial — Interment Above Ground — answers every purpose, from the standpoint of sanitation, economy and aesthetics. In Biblical times the most civilized people of the earth had for thousands of years preferred tomb burial to earth-burial.
Real preparedness embraces the idea of instant action directed by the mature wisdom of foresight. In the time of placid thought and the strongest throb of life, prepare for the day of mental stress and the time of affliction—and death.
Woodlawn Community Mausoleum will be built to endure - for all time—to encompass the dignity of death—with perfect peace and tranquillity.
We are always ready to submit details.
