H. S. in Edwardsville In teachers doth excel, They’re full of sagest wisdom As all the pupils tell. The superintendent of the school Is Mr. C. F. Ford, You’ll find him signed for Latin Upon the Assembly Board. We next have R. C. Sayre, Our principal and boss, He guides our “Alma Mater” And seldom is made cross. One busy teacher away up here, Teaches all the Business line, Her name is Miss G. Davis, She’s right there all the time. ’Tis far and wide for Shorthand, Her pupils spread her fame, She has a bright assistant, Miss Stutzer is her name. We have some in our Faculty Considered rather small, And tho Miss Woods seems rather short, In class she sure grows tall. Her partner is Miss Weber, Our mathematics shark, You’ll see her ever working From early noon ’til dark. In languages we had good luck, In finding Miss McClure, And when you ask her for some help, She readily says, “Sure.” The Juniors and the Sophomores, Take English from Miss Beck, But if you do not study hard, Your chances go to wreck. » The Seniors and the Freshies, Take their work across the way. Miss Bartels instructs these youths In English every day. The culinary art section Is taught by Miss Nelle Dee. She shows the girls the sewing game, And what to eat, you see. The Manual Training teacher Is known as Coach Christophe, He taught us in Athletics At rival teams, to scoff. Miss Regan teaches music, To all of our singing “bee,” She takes them all both short and tall, And teaches “do,” “re,” “mi.” Upon the highest floor, Is Mr. Porter's class; He shows the Seniors many things About the use of gas. We have another teacher That started just this year; Miss Willett, we all call her, She teaches Preps, (Oh dear). And last upon the waiting list, But far from least you see, Comes Miss Slayback. As you know She teaches Botany. .uniituiiHiiiiniiuHitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiniiiiiMiiiniiiiiiiiiiiitiiiMiiiiiiiiiiHiraiNiiiiiiniimiuiiiiiiiiiiimHiiimuiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiniiiiiuiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiuuiiiiiiiiuiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiuiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiimnTIGER STAFF, EDITOR IN CHIEF ETHEL WENTZ BUSINESS MM n'DEIUCK SCHULZE man waters mmiCK W8ER Esther mmma DONHU) WmCK Lm CUE henjiy mumTHETIGER 13 !;!lllllli!i!!ji!f!!!lll!l!!l||||||||||||||l!IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM OFFICERS Frank Tunnell .....................

For who could well help being boastful and proud If a member of the great twenty-one,— A class that admits with humility great Equals few, and superiors none. We are modest, we know, but we feel we should state We’re independent and original quite; Else how would we dare for our colors to choose A selection like “Yellow and white.”? The very word “yellow” to low-brows like those Of the Sophomores and Juniors, my guess is, Suggests a broad streak of a cowardly kind.— A streak that no Senior possesses. To us with our intellect, clever and trained, “Yellow” has a far other meaning,— It typifies “sunlight”, and nuggets of gold,— Ripe grain that the reapers are gleaning. The white of our colors as every one knows Has a meaning that can’t be mistaken; It signifies courage and squareness and pluck, And loyalty, firm and unshaken. And thus it occurred we chose yellow and white, For the reasons just as I’ve told them; We make no defense for the colors we chose , We honor them both and uphold them. fluiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiuiiiiniMnnimiiiiiiiniHHOROSCOPE NAME PREVAILING PRESENT CHARACTERISTIC OCCUPATION CHIEF AMBITION Allen, R.

BIOGRAPHY OF CLASS OF ’22 Here s to the class of ’22, the pride of E. II. S. Here’s to the members of that class, the class that is the best. When we arrived in E. H. S., after years of slating, as one and all you will recall, t’was back in 1918. Our Freshman year was filled with fear, of principal and teachers, with voice subdued we first now view'ed their stern and awful features. The following days of teachers’ praise filled us with delight. We worked at school, played the fool, by studying half the night. Through five long months of torture we worked ’neath teachers’ eye, until the preps with palsied steps ascended into High. We kidded them in class room, we tripped them in the hall, we gave them extra credits for taking up baseball. And when the school year ended and vacation started, with humble joy, each girl and boy home their text books carted. Then after weeks of joy and toil, we, to the school returned, and took up our work again amongst the other learned. Our Sophomore year away up here was one relieved of pain, for then we’d try, just to get by, and act like someone sane. We yielded to no Junior nor haughty Senior then, w’e showed our wit a little bit, and forged ahead like men. We scoured the sea of knowledge and learned (ath reef and rock. We sat in the assembly and we stargazed at the clock. We took part in athletics, in all its branches, too. We started playing hookey, and stayin’ out of school, and when at last we did come back, we broke each well-known rule. At last the year drew to a close, with joy in every heart. We laughed at all the Seniors, who tried their stage hand and art. We passed thru that long summer, and longed to hear the bell, that long ago, thru ice and snow had called us back to-----well. ’T’was in the fall of twenty we ro?e ficm out the mass, and placed our name in the hall of fame, “The Brilliant Junior Class.” Our faces all grew graver, in knowledge we all grew. We dropped out several dunces and gathered up a few. But now our years are numbered in dear old E. H. S. There’s but one year remaining, to the class that is the best. And in this year of toil w'herein we strive to win, the honors of a Junior Class honors to revel in. We’ve shown superior talent, upon the High School stage. And anyone will tell you our class-play was the rage. We’ve shown athletic prowess, upon the old gymnasium floor in challenging the entire school, and making a good score. How, in conclusion I will state, in spite of all those past, I ain’t never seen no Juniors like this year’s Junior Class.

HISTORY OF CLASS OF 1923 We know that you will never see A class as good as ’23, Who carre to High as silly preps, But who advanced by rapid steps, Our class has studied as well as played, And we know our memory will never fade, From the kind teachers who have been so true, And from all other classes, too. Oh, yes, we have all made some mistake, As falling to sleep and failing to wake, And being called to the office the next intermission! Or leaving the assembly without pei mission, We quailed at the mighty Senior’s eye, And the jibes of the Juniors as they passed by— But now since we are Sophomores all has changed; We have collected our senses and are using our brains, ’Till we’re no longer the least of the classes “Four,” Now the whole H.

As you know with us, to will is to do, so we lost no time in starting out on our trip. We left home about 8:15 and after a short walk came to a large brick building called the “Edwardsville Dry Goods Company.” Being attracted by the name we at once entered. We were met by the head manager, a small good natured man named Mr. Ford. We told him that we would like to look at their stock of books and literature. The book department was on the second floor, where the floor walker, Mr. Sayre took charge of us. He explained where we could find the different kinds of books and then left us to the mercy of the salesladies. Altho Mr. Sayre had been very careful in his explanations, many of us looked for algebra at the counter at which Shakespeare’s works were the only books sold. The other customers laughed at us, calling us “Fres'n-ies”, but again our strong wills exerted themselves and we turned a deaf ear to their scoinful words. And now for a word about the salesladies. There were quite a number of these, each having charge of dif- ferent kinds of books. All of them, were interested in our wants and were very patient, altho we are often very troublesome. As we spent quite a long time in the store we came to know some of them quite well. Two were very interested in our choice of literature pertaining to English. One of these became impatient with us and asked for our co-operation as we had grown rather noisy. The other saleslady seemed to have her “r’s” at home that day but she later told us that she came from Florida where “r’s” were out of style. Some of us were waited upon by a slight brown haired lady, who it is said, “lived on dates.” She showed us her stock of history and explained all about the ancient people as far back as 5000 B. C. We all chose to buy an Algebra and an English but some seemed to prefer Latin, others History. The interest of many of the girls centered on clothes and so they bought textiles. About noon we began to feel tired so we adjourned to the rest room.. After a short rest we came back, some of us starting over, while others went on where we had ended. We found a new saleslady had been installed who had charge of miscellaneous books, thus relieving some of the other clerks. Our afternoon was spent in about the same way as the morning, but with fewer mistakes in our conduct as we had become accustomed to the way that customers should act. And now, class, here we are about 3 o’clock, still shopping in this same store. I suppose we’ll finish about 5 o’clock today, but who knows? 4 lliii!llltllllt!!!lllllll!l!l!lll!lltlli:ilini!!l!lltttlllllltl!!lll!;!1!ll!l!;i!!lllllltll!!lllltlll!ltlll!!llllllllllllllllllllllllllllillll!im THE YEAR IN A NUTSHELL This year, 1920-21, has proved a very successful one especially in the eyes of the students. The school has advanced much during the last year. The year has been one of the most regular years. No days were lost on account of epidemics or coal shortage. Besides the regular holidays, Armistice Day, and Washington’s Birthday have been added as halfholidays. The faculty has been somewhat changed during the past year. Miss McClure has the Latin and French classes; Miss Beck has the Sophomore and Junior English; Miss Weber has part of the mathematics; Mr Porter has taken some of the Science classes from Miss Slayback; Mr. Chris-tophe has the Manual training classes and is, of course, Coach. At the beginning of the second semester, Miss Willett came to take the Mathematics classes and to take charge of the preps. Because of the number in school and the opening of the Wheeler School a room was given to Miss Regan for music. This room is also used as an Assembly by the preps and as a classroom by Miss Willett. The highest attendance of the year has reached two hundred sixty-five which is the same as last year. The graduating class is not so large as that of last year having twenty-six girls and nine boys. The Commercial Course prevails over the others. Some other subjects have been added to this course, thus making the list of electives much shorter. Great interest has been shown in the clubs, especially in the Commercial Club and in the Pickwick Literary Society. Very good programs have been given by both of these clubs. The work done in the Music department by Miss Regan greatly helped in the school. The orchestra again has proven very helpful. , The Athletic work under Mr. Christophe has shown great improvement. Great efforts have been put forth to make baseball a school game.

Henry Dierkes Sec. Irene Mueri V. Pres. Grace Cunningham Treas. Alouise Hotz Another year has seen the Commercial Club increase both in size and activity. There are now 200 members of which 110 are active. Many educational, as well as entertaining programs were rendered. These programs included much Music in the way of Vocal solos, Piano solos, Cornet solos, Violin and other Music. The literary portion of the program included talks by business men, talks by members of the school, debates, recitations, readings and a stereopticon lecture. A special Christmas program, included Christmas recitations, letters to Santa Claus, and the usual presents after the program. A special meeting on February 14 included talks on literary and political men, and Valentines to conclude this. At this time Miss Davis was presented with a big box of candy by the Club in order that it might in a manner show some appreciation for the great work she has done in this Club. The special attraction on April 1 was a Faculty program. Not until it was brought before the notice of the Club did any one know what talent was unused. The aim of the Club has been to aid the Commercial students and we are sure that it has attained this aim and that it will continue to do this in the future. •imnjmimMMniiiniimMiwimBmmimimmiHiWHiiHimitmttiiimiimH36 THE TIGER miifflmiynLHiimiHiiinitimranniiSiiiiMiimnimiiiiiiniinii COMMERCIAL CLUB GREGG CLUB The Gregg Club has kept up its organization during the past year.

Grace Cunningham V. Pres. Wm. Delicate Sec. Dorothy Geers The “Pickwick,” organized under the direction of Miss Bartels, has proved a great success throughout the year. During the first semester meetings were held the eighth period every Friday afternoon. These programs included Music, Readings, and small plays. An open program was given on January 28 at which the play “Please Pass the Cream” was given. On March 21 a play “Sewing for the Heathen” was given. This play was in the evening and a small admission was charged. The proceeds went for new books for the Library. The Pickwick Society has been a great success and we are hoping for a progressive and brilliant future. ,« , : MUSIC Miss Regan has devoted much time to this subject so it has proved very helpful in the activities of the year. Combined with the Pickwick Literary Society, the chorus classes entertained us December 23rd. At other times the chorus classes led the High School in singing. During this semester the days have been changed to Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Several times programs prepared by Miss Regan have been given in the assembly The Orchestra has proved very successful this year. It has played for the High School entertainments, the Junior and Senior plays. It has also played at the Wildey for the Operetta, which was given there by the grades. niiiniii!iiinui-:;mimin!iiii!iH!im!MiiiiiiuimiinMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinniniiiiiiiiMiiiiiniiiHiiiiiimiiiniii iuuiiiiii ai:iniiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiimiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiinmiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiHiiiHiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuniiHmuiiiiiu38 THE TIGER PICKWICK CLUB STRATFORD LITERARY SOCIETY tratnuiiffliiniiiiniiiiiiniMiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiininniiiiiiiuiiiHiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiMiiiniNiiiiiiiiiiHiiHiiniiiMiiiiiHiiiiuiiiniiiiinHiiniiinnuuiuiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiniiiniiiiiiiiiiiiniiininiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiithe tiger bhmhnminmwmmm BASKET BALL E. H. S. Basket Ball team started the season with the same old fight and pep as was done in previous years of athletic contest. With a few of last years left overs intermingled with a few raw recruits from this year’s material, the basket ball team seemed to be somewhat a failure in the beginning of the season; this probably was due to the fact that too many games were lost after our first game, which was a double victory for our team. The team this year was probably the smallest sized ever developed in the history of the school. With Schulze as captain and forward the ball was constantly held in play. Fritz makes a very excellent captain and it is with much regret that we can’t hold him. over for next year’s squad. There never was a defense too strong or too large, but what he would slip through as smoothly as a “streak of greased lightning’’, and cage a basket for his team. Koogle, one of our last year’s hold overs played a good game at both guard and forward; however, he had to miss several of our hard games on account of injuries received in practice work. Isaacs came to us from Trenton and proved himself an excellent player at guard. Orville is a very fast floor man and has a keen eye for the basket. He will be with us next year.

Wilbur, though very small, made many a large man jump for the tip at center. And when it comes to breaking up a dribble leave it to Wilbur and Orville; they will do the work. May played his first season with the team. Kelly has a very steady hand and is almost sure of a ringer when he tries form the center line. With a few exceptions Kelly has always played a good game. He will be with us next year. With “Dick”, “Monk”, and “Shortie” as subs we were always fresh and ready for any team no matter how hard the game might be. This is what constituted E. 11. S. Basket Ball Team of which we are justly proud. ,« j ,. t ALTON TOURNAMENT The Edwardsville High School Basket Ball Team entered the Alton district tournament on March 12, 1921 with a spirit greatly to be commended. The team, rebuilt but a month before, was composed for the most part of small men,—young in years and experience. They did not expect to win the shield but they did expect to give their opponents all the fight that was in them. The first team met was Gillespie. Gillespie had won the night before and had some of the confidence gained by a. victory on a strange floor. This availed them little as our boys were returned winners by a score of 29—15. The second game was against Belleville. They had a splendid team, well coached. They had previously defeated Granite City by a margin of two points. Through three quarters our boys led this team, were tied in the fourth quarter and in the last moment of play were defeated by an unusual shot, score 20—18. It was a hard game to lose but a credit to our team nevertheless. Captain Schulze was picked forward on second all district team. , ,« SUMMARY OF GAMES Edwardsville vs. Wood River 36-6 Edwardsville vs. Madison 50-8 Edwardsville vs. Granite City 16-27 Edwardsville vs. Collinsville 13-33 Edwardsville vs. Jerseyville 21-35 Edwardsville vs. Staunton 22-18 Edwardsville vs. Benld 22-11 Edwardsville vs. Litchfield 27-17 Edwardsville vs. Madison 25-23 Edwardsville vs. Belleville 18-17 Edwardsville vs. Alton 19-32 Edwardsville vs. Gillespie 28-15 Edwardsville vs. Collinsville 16-25 Edwardsville vs. Alton 16-19 FdVardsville vs. Gillespie 15-9 Edwardsville vs. Ofallon 16-17 Edwardsville vs. Granite City 9-15 Edwardsville vs. Nashville 13-44 Edwardsville vs. Ofallon 23-12 Edwardsville vs. Wood River 21-10.

We’ve had good teams in High School In baseball and the rest But first of all is the basket ball You’ll all admit they’re best For there’s our gallant captain Fritz Schulze he goes by name He’ll win or lose, by science or ruse. He’s always in the game. Then comes our all-star Isaacs Who plays a gallant game His shots are fine from the center line His passing none can blame. Wilbur is our center, He plays the game like sin; He stays in the corner, like little Jack Horner, And shoots the ball right in. And now we come to Koogle Who plays the game like Wib; He finds bad luck like a headless duck In the shap of a “busted” rib. Kelly is a new man,— Just stop and look him o’er,— He plays the game each day the same,— The best shot on the floor. The one that wears the No. 6 Dick Halley,—it would seem The way he can shoot and pass to “boot’ Would help out any team. And then comes “Shorty” Macha Who’s called the lucky boy; He shoots right in with face agrin, While rooters shout for joy. The last man that we have today Is the writer—that’s a cinch; He holds the ball, can’t pass at all And his name is— —Harris LynchTHETIGER 43 raniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiM FOOTBALL The E. H. S. Independents opened the football season with Principia Academy at St. Louis. Since this was the first game of the season and most of our players were inexperienced we were defeated by a score of 34-0. Principia huskies had the advantage over our te?.m both in experience and size. In this game “Sweed” played star tackle and “Red” handled the huskies at right end. On October 15 our team went to St. Louis to play Cleveland High. Owing to the hard fight with Principia most of our players were somewhat shaky in the beginning of the game, but this soon passed over and we showed Cleveland up during the last half of the game. Our pass and plunges worked very well. Had Cleveland not run a score in the first half we could have held them to a tie. We made one touchdown and came within three yards of another. It was in this game that Cleveland’s record was broken by having a score made against them. Our score was made in the third quarter by Col. Waters who, after receiving a pass iTom Smith, ran for a touchdown. Schulze and Dunlap played a good game by making many gains thru the line and around the end. On October 23 E. H. S.

Brock-meier played a good game by downing the opponents before they were halfway started. In this game Edwardsville played the best interference they had ever played. Captain Smith made sixty yards in five downs three minutes before the game ended. The final score was 33-12 in favor of Edwardsville. On October 30 we went to St. Charles, Mo., to play the High School there. Having been victorious in the preceding game we felt quite sure of another victory. Shortly after the game started we made a touchdown. Throughout the remainder of the game we were constantly in our opponents territory, with the ball but nevertheless we were defeated by one point. However, we played the better football, for St. Charles never-got within twelve yards of our goal after they made their touchdown. The final score was 7—6. THE CLEVELAND GAME The football boys met Cleveland High One afternoon last fall They strove their best to reach the goal, But struck a big stone wall. Dunlap hit off tackle But got an awful crack; Smith went around the end But the huskies drove him back. Their center was a big one And although Scotty did his best Before the game was over He was gently laid at rest. Schulze had plunged right thru their line Several times before But this one time they saw- him. And he plunged that day no more. “Count” surprised the Cleveland boys By bringing down a pass And ran beneath the goal posts,— Our score was made at last. Brocky tore around right end,— “A goal this time by heck,”— But two big huskies spied him coming And jumped upon his neck. So thus the battle ended, For night w as falling fast And soon the car w-as homeward bound With “emblems” of the past. iiiimiiiHiiiiwiiiRi::imiui!iiinuiiuuiiitiniiniiiiiiiiHinimnmiiHi!iint!uiiiM!iuiiiniM:iMnnii!iNi:h:in!:'miun!ii::niHiiuiimmiiiiiHii»[nniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiititinimiii!uimuiiiiiiiniiii!ifiiiitmimiiiiii!!tiinn[!iiiii!ni'!!:i:mi!iRmiini:n7f u»ttMASQUERADE PARTY On Saturday October 30, a masquerade party, planned by Miss Slay-back, was held. Many unique characters and persons were represented. We’re sure that Miss Weber, as the old maid school teacher, if she had come to school in that dress and with that manner, would have made any student of E. H. S. quake with fear. Many old men and women appeare and hobbled about the gym. Little boys and girls played marbles, skipped rope and resorted to other childish games. Besides these, gypsies, negroes, Japanese girls, dancers, downs, colonial personages and others dressed in Hallowe’en clothes came to take their places in the crowd. Verlee Schwarz, as the best appearing girl, and Frank Campbell, as the most original, boy received prizes. After the unmasking fortunes were told in various ways and later games were played. The evening ended with aancing. j j jt JUNIOR PLAY The Junior Play was given on February 25 1921 and was a great success. Jack Dimond as the Jew in “The Merchant of Venice Up-to-date’’ did exceedingly well. In our opinion no one could have done better, and the other members of the cast too acquitted themselves creditably. Helen Heim made a good Jessica, Grace Cunningham was a strict school teacher, and Edwin Fields did very well in using his pony. It sure looked as if he knew what he was doing and as if he had a great deal of practice. The football scene was real and exciting and Clyde Fruit deserves honor-abel mention for the part he played. OLYMPIAN BANQUET On October 8th a banquet was held in the Gym, given by the Olympians to welcome their new members. The refreshments committee selected by the Captain, Evelyn Bower, and assisted by Miss Dee, prepared the “eats” for the occasion. After refreshments were served an excellent program was rendered. This program included music, talks, and readings. After the program games were played. Dancing was also a feature of the evening. j MARATHON BANQUET A splendid time was enjoyed by the lady members of the faculty and the Marathon Girls in the High School Gym on December 1, 1920 at a semi-formal banquet, which was planned by committees appointed by Frances Draper, captain of the Marathons for the past two years. The banquet included such good things to eat as rolls, pickles, potatoes, veal loaf and salad, pie and grape juice. An after dinner program was rendered which included toasts and music. ni!iitniiiiiiitiit!!tii!iiiiitmiitiiiiniiiit;iiifniitti:ii;iiiiiiiifiiiititniiiiimFOOTBALL BOX SOCIAL As the football team was independent of the school this year it was necessary to raise some money for its support. In order to accomplish this a box social was held on October 1. “Count” Waters was c’nosen as auctioneer and exerted his lungs to their fullest extent. The girls brought dazzling boxes of every shape and color and anxiously bit their fingernails waiting to see who would be their partner. It was noticed that some of the boys bought two boxes in order to get the one they wanted. Mr. Christophe bought a double box and then turned it in again to be resold for the good cause. After the contents were devoured, dancing and games were enjoyed for the remaining time. ,st TALES OF AN OSTERMOOR If you dream of “History,” in connection with a “Wood,” it is a good sign you are very dense in said subject. But if you dream of note books in connection with “History,” you will spend the toughest night possible. In other words, there are nightmares usually caused by waiting until the last night to get the work in, and only prevented by Death, (That is, to the notebook—for they are sure to follow you to your grave.) If you dream of typewriters and such—prepare for a bad day. Be surprised at nothing which may happen to you, but regard it stoically as a necessary evil. The dream will probably be accompanied by convulsions, but do not attempt to stop them. They are the natural symptoms of a subnormal mind reacting to the degrading influence of your nocturnal performance upon these implements of agony. Immediately upon awakening take a warm bath and an aspirin tablet. Girls—If you dream, of being beautiful—get up and remove the tin curlers. It is a sure sign that one is pressing on a soft spot—hence causing a kink in the brain. If you dream of Wooley’s Hand-Book—arouse your self immediately, take an ice bath, stick head in ice box for thirty minutes, or poke head in crushed ice, anything to cool the brain, for a dream of this sort is always followed by one of the consuming fires of the lower regions. Remedy —Don’t study. “Idle Hour” “Room 202,” and “Room 20,” will furnish sufficient recreation. ilillllllllllllllllllllllllltlinillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIH51 THE tiger llillll!!lllllll|!l|lllll!lllllllllllllll|||||il!li[|||[|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||llll||||||!lll||||i;il||||lllllllllllllllllllllllll 4 5 6 3.
