It is our hope that the book may be enjoyed by all of you and that it may offend none. In future years may it recall the bright and sunny side of the year 1922 in the Edwardsville High School. three19 2 2 THE TIGER To MISS BEULAH McCLURE We respectfully dedicate this volume in appreciation of the interest that she has shown in us during the past two years.19 2 2 THE TIGER fiveTHE TIGER 19 2 2 BOARD OF EDUCATION Thomas Williamson, President. B. H. Richards, Jr. C. A. Wentz E. A. Bollman Ed McLean E. D. Bell C. H. Spilman As each new year is ushered in, there comes with it increased demands. These demands mark the trend of progress educationally. It is the wise and efficient Superintendent and Board of Education that know how to meet these needs in the best possible way. The Board of Education believes that the general aim of education is to make individuals wish each other well, to increase the sum of human energy and happiness, decrease the sum of discomfort of the humans that are or will be, and encourage higher and impersonal pleasures. The schools have not failed in this. Little new or expensive equipment has been added this year. The energy has all been expended to strengthen and keep up the high standard of the High School. The Class of 1922 is highly grateful for the sincere efforts put forth in their behalf and trust that in the succeeding years all other classes may continue to enjoy similar privileges.r J O o O O «THE TIGER 19 2 2 CHAS.

First comes our superintendent, The honorable Mr. Ford; The pupils knew him long ago, When they to High School soared. • All hail Professor Krumsiek, Our principal so tall; He teaches Economics, And rules the ’sembly hall. And then we find Miss Davis, Who teaches us shorthand, And though you search most everywhere, Her equal’s not on hand. Across the way from her room You’ll see our shoi’t Miss Woods, And though you’re Prep or Senior, She says, “Deliver the goods.” Now this year on the faculty There is another member; Miss Eaton’s classes tell us Her lessons you remember. Miss Willet next we find on deck, To teach us all the law, And in your reasonings, says she, “Let there be no flaw.” twelveTHE TIGER 19 2 2 And in the language room again, We have Miss B. McClure, And if you want a favor done, She says, “Oui, Oui, Monsieur.” Above the entrance facing east We find Miss Stutzer’s room, Where tardy, poor, punk typists Are sure to meet their doom. “Us Seniors has the worsted time,” In English-four we see, For there we are instructed By pretty Miss Gewe. The Juniors learn to drop their “ain’ts” In the room across the hall, Where Juniors and Sophs are taught to talk, By one whom we all know—Miss Stahl. Coach Rawlings teaches woodwork And basketball and track, He taught his teams to play the game And bring the “bacon” back. Miss Dee is so obliging In programs, masques, and all; She teaches High School lassies To bake cakes that never fall. Miss Regan teaches music, To those who try to sing, And those who can’t just sit and wait For the passing bell to ring. 4 thirteen THE TIGER 19 2 2 EDWARDSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL Mr. Porter teaches Physics Upon the topmost floor; And still they looked and still their wonder grew, That one single head could hold the sum he knew. Miss Slayback’s fame is last, you see, I hope she’ll not feel hurt; You know we save the sweetest things And keep them for dessert. Harris V. Lynch uaa anoj19 2 2 THE TIGER PRESIDENT H.

It was sure one grand class. Sure and there goes Senator Isaacs, one of my classmates. He’s a going in to see Sheriff Rinkle. You see old Bill Oliver beat up that little old man Spitze, you know him as the “Swede.” Well Swede haint much of a fighter cause I remember when a Griffin kid beat him up in High School. Well, Swede hired that old Geezer of A1 Stolte to sue for damages and Judge Kay ’lowed as how Swede’s face wa’nt damaged ’cause sez he, ‘how kin ye damage somepin as is already past identification.” “There’s a divorce case on to-day “Miller vs. Miller.” You see Mrs. Miller is suein’ fer her maiden name of Schwartz. She claims as how Curdie beat her up every day of this week. District Judge is agoin’ to be here to sit on this case. Did you read as how that thar Shaw gal finally hooked onto that guy Fields after a decade and a half of active courtin’. That gal sure must have endurance. But women is that way. Take my wife why that girl Leta will gab over the back fence with tha that old maid, Jessie Little, till she almost faints.” “Old Lady Epping ’lows as how she’s goin’ to buy here meat from Unger’s shop now since she’s got insulted by thet smart alek’ Mr. Clark cause he wouldn’t take back some cheese that she’d only bo’ten a week ago from him” “I see by the paper that that George Rinkel is gettin’ on a right smart in politics. He’s runnin’ for Mayor at Fruit this year but there’s a suffragette by the name of Schaflfer runnin’ agin him an they say thet he ain’t got no chanst.” “Old Charlie Ehrle lost the Madison Store last week in a Kelly Pool game down at Dimonds Pool Room. They say as how the new manager, Mr. Blake, is goin’ to make that gigglin Bollman lady the foreman. I reckon the store wil be the laughin’ stock of the town.” “Did you hear as how that fellow Schwartz left a week ago in some sort of contraption for the moon. He took that McNie'ly woman with him. She got a divorce that her husband was still a drinkin’ grape soda. She uster be a Taake.” “Well I reckon as how I’ll be goin’ ter home. My wife’s entertainin’ Reverend Suppiger and his sweetie Miss Heinrich at an afternoon tea and she wants me to pour it out. I’ll tell you if she keens goin’ to Ortgier’s Movie House, I will be poor afore long. Well s’long.” thirty-oneTHE TIGER 19 2 2 THE “SOPHS” Ho! Piano, sound a jazz note! Ho! Seniors, clear the way, For the Sophs will be, in all their glee In your honorable place, some day. Ne’er was a class in High School That could half compare; For a class of such ingenuity, We’ll admit, is very rare; And we must say that even today We’ve a steed to excel that of brave Horatius; For we have within our reach A pony, to advise us o’er stumbling places. While flows the Mississippi, While stands the sacred hill, The proud class of ’24 Shall have such honor still.

We set sail, Mr. Ford captain of the crew, and he instructed us what to do. Mr. Sayre was steward of this boat, and our actions and headway he would note. We sailed on well and made the points we should. But those who didn’t do the best they could, had to leave the ship at a midpoint port, and back o’er the same waters to depait. But most of us reached our goals, Escaping many rocks and shoals, And waited there from June to September when, we would start our trip again. When we boarded our ship we were surprised to note, that Mr. Krum-siek was steward of the boat; well wre sailed smoothly along without a fuss, a few going overboard which really frightenen us; but we threw out life savers and we’ve gotten by so far, but we must watch out for even one jar. We know if anything goes wrong, we have a trusty captain and steward, to help us get along. We’ve hit our mid-point and are sailing fine, and expect to reach our destination—sometime; and as ourclas s is clear of lazy people or dumb blocks, thus we shall steer clear of shoals or rocks. j A CASE OF GRAMMATICAL LOVE Did you ever dip in grammatical love? If you haven’t I will give you a diagram of it in the declarative mood. You see a beautiful girl walking down the street. If she is singular, (vou become nominative; you walk across the street changing the verbal subject and then become dative. If she is not objective in this case you may become plural. You walk home together. Her mother is accumulative; her father is imperative. You go and sit down and find her little brother is an indefinable article. You talk of the future; she changes the subject to present time. You kiss her and she favors the masculine. Her father is present and things are tense. It happens that you are past participle after the active case is over. thirty-five■19 2 2 THE TIGER L Anderson, Carl Baird, Lester Barnett, Alma Becker, Hilbert Berner, James Brase, Renata Brendle, Harold Brockmeier, Harold Bryant, Melvin Burns, Mary Busker, Clara Burroughs, Virginia Cline, John Cunningham, Dorothy Deitz, Alma Dippold, lone Dippold, Millicent Dorr, Vera Feodworth, Helen Fiegenbaum, Elmer Funke, Leona Gable, Edward Gerfen, Carl Giese, Wilbur Glass, Lawrence Grebel, Marcella Hellrung, Barthol Hellrung, Hazel Hess, Rosalia Fomann.

The Olympian and Marathon Camps have quite a number of the lower classmen on their membership lists. The Glee Club owes a part of its success to its Freshmen members. Then, too, in athletics the Freshmen played a big part. In the scrub basketball tournament they carried off the first honors. In reality it was not a team of scrubs but it was the basketball team of the next three years. Hats off to the Freshmen! thirty-nineHERE ARE SOME OF THE E. H. S. YELLS Ric-a-chica boom!

The material was of the best but the ever persistent enemy—flunking—overtook the stars. The coach did his very best but his efforts alone couldn’t turn out a football team. The Litchfield High School brought down a real team and took away the bacon in the first, game of the season. The members of the team played hard but were outweighed in every position—with one exception—Boeker. Smith, playing his usual game was the only bright spot on the team. The final score was lfi-6. Collinsville Community High repeated the first chapter of this story. Our alibis were Smith’s illness and a few more grades of seventy-four or jess. The result of 45-7 shows what kind of a game it was. The advisory board on Athletics met at the school and decided to discontinue football for the present. The Tiger Staff and the rest of the Senior Class sincerely hope that the Black and Orange will be better represented on the gridiron in the year to come. forty-two19 2 2 THE TIGER W. A. RAWLINGS—THE COACH Coach Rawlings has just passed his first year in the Edwardsville High School and in that year has shown his ability to make full use of the athletic talent in the school. Do we really appreciate the good points of our coach? Or do we just take them for granted and perhaps, now and then, say a few words of criticism. We must remember, there are coaches and coaches—ours is one of the best. We have a coach who led our fellows through a hard season in basketball and made it a success. We have every reason to be proud of the fighting machine that he produced. Mr. Rawlings has always been an example and an inspiration to the men on the teams. He has always been cool headed, never excited, and his poise gave assurance to the boys under his direction. Then he is a good athlete himself. He is a good model of physical strength and can show the boys what is to be done instead of telling them from the sidelines. One always admires this sort of instruction. Optimistic encouragement does a great deal toward winning the games. Did you ever notice how the men play after they have been out for the intermission between the halves? He instills a feeling of confidence in the individuals that gives vigor to their work. forty-three19 2 2 THE TIGER BASKETBALL The Basket Ball season of 1921-’22 started out in the best possible style. The boys won six straight victories over some of the strong teams of the vicinity and were planning out a victory over Collinsville. The visitors appeared with a large crowd of rooters and lots of confidence. Right there the E. H. S. quintette lost its first game of the season and broke up the string of victories. Smith, the star guard, was forced off the team at this stage of the game on account of physical disabilities. The loss to Collinsville served to stir up the fighting spiiit of the boys in Black and Orange and they whipped Alton in the Alton gymnasium by the score of 22-21. In that game Miller and Stolte made the Altonites sit up and take notice. During the Christmas holidays the team had a nice long rest but yet they didn’t lose any of the fighting form for they came back and walked away with Hillsboro 21-10. Belleville—our rivals and also our friends—put the second black spot on the E. H. S. banner when they defeated the team 28-15. The team was criticized in this match for too much individual starring and not enough co-operation. Next came the hardest defeat of the season. It was from Granite City, 23-10. The boys rallied well after their defeat and took the following match from Jerseyville by a one-sided score. The Jerseyville team is coached by Mr. M. G. Norris who was our coach two years ago. Before the second game with Granite City, Miller became ineligible and was unable to participate. Granite City repeated their victory on the Granite City floor. Koogle, Stolte and May gave a good exhibition of basket ball in that game. Macha lost his place on the team when the new semester commenced because he had been in high school for eight semesters. Nauman started the season as a second string man but soon won a place on the first team by his rapidly advancing skill. At the time of the tournament, he was one of the best men. Belleville again defeated the home squad on the local floor by a close score of 12-11. Two more defeats ended the season. Alton took the local lads to a trimming by the score of 21-20. In the last game of the season Collinsville showed what they could do on their home floor. They ran away with Edwardsville 34-7. Don’t think that E. H.

INTER-CLASS TOURNAMENT The Seniors lived up to their past records and easily took first place in the inter-class basketball tourney. In the first game they won from the Sophomores. The Juniors triumphed over the Freshies on the same night. The next evening brought the Seniors and Juniors together in the clash for first and second place. The Seniors won first. Coach Rawlings refereed in all of the games. forty-five Seniors 21 Juniors 25 Seniors 41 Sophomores 14 Freshmen 10 Juniors 17THE TIGER 19 2 2 Norvall Koogle, forward, is a good floor man and is always in the game. He is the only man who has played every half this year. Lloyd Caldwell—another foi wa: d- is always a good shot and a hard worker on the team. Hilbert Nauman, although he is also a fine center, is very good on defence. Harris Lynch, the guard, is good on the long shots and is a steady worker. Leo Macha is another guard for the “Black and Orange.” He is good at breaking up dribbles and never is found loafing on the job. Orville Isaacs, guard, is excellent on defense and a good dribbler. He has plenty of fight and contributed greatly to the success of the team both on defense and offense. He received honorable mention at the district tournament although he played in one game only. Kermit Miller, forward, is a good shot, a good dribbler and is exceedingly fast on the Poor. Considering the length of time that he played, he scored the largest number of points. Wilbur Stolte, either a forward or a center, is an excellent shot. He is light but fast. Wilbur is the highest point man for the season. Calvin May, guard, is very good on defense work. He recovers the ball very well from the backboard. Edward Kane, the forward, is light but he is a true shot and is rather fast. forty-eightTHE TIGER= = 19 2 2 THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT Edwardsville lost out in the first game in which it participated in the district tournament in the Shurtleff gymnasium in Upper Alton. Granite City led us into camp by the score of 26-20. Edwardsville may be given the first three-quarters, for the local team kept ahead until the last ten minutes. Both teams played a good, clean and hard-fought game. Collinsville, our neighbor to the south, did quite a little better than we did. They repeated their victory of last year and carried off first honors. In the first match they defeated Jerseyville in a slow game. The next game brought out the real form of the Collinsville players. They eliminated the Wood River “dark horse” team in a fast game with a onesided result. The score of that game was 27-11. Their hardest game was with Belleville but the latter team was not able to put up a very strong resistance on account of the fatiguing games that they had had on the preceding day. Two of the Belleville players were under the care of a doctor when the whistle blew for the game to commence. Collinsville won the final game over Mascoutah, the winner of Class B, by the score of 34-9. They played hard and fast the first quarter and took it easy for the remaining three. Little interest was manifested in the Class B games. Mascoutah won first place over Madison. Brighton, the little school that made such a good showing last year, failed to make an impression when they they met the swift team from Madison. The drawings this year were very similar to those of last year. Collinsville, the district champion, got another comparatively easy place on the card. Belleville got a bad break and had to contend with the fast quintet from the Roosevelt High of Alton. Belleville succeeded in downing that team and then had to meet the Granite City team. They won in the fastest game of the meet over the latter team. Two thousand people watched the game with enthusiastic interest. When the match with Collinsville came the Belleville boys were not able to put up the scrap that they had showed in the foregoing contests. forty-nineTHE TIGER 19 2 2 CLASS A Edwardsville.. 20 Granite City ..26 Granite City .19 Belleville ......20 Alton .......... 18 Belleville ......23 Belleville...... 13 Collinsville ....23 Jerseyville .....11 Collinsville ....21 Collinsville ....27 Wood River ....11 East St. Louis 10 Wood River ....11 CLASS B Collinsville Mascoutah Modesto ........10 Palmyra ........12 Palmyra ......13 Mascoutah ....45 O’Fallon .......15 Mascoutah ......25 Mascoutah 24 Madison ......9 Brighton .......24 Troy ...........11 Brighton .....12 Madison ......20 Madison ........14 Chesterfield ...12 fifty19 2 2 THE TIGER THE SCRUB TOURNAMENT The Scrub Tournament, a new feature in High School basketball, proved to be an attractive event. Coach Rawlings made the ruling that anyone who had ever been in a first team basketball game in the Edwards-ville High School was ineligible for the tournament. The drawings made by the coach pitted the Seniors against the weak Freshman team for the first game. The Sophomores were to tackle the Juniors in the next episode. Tuesday afternoon, March 14, brought the Seniors and Freshmen together. The Seniors had some bad luck for they were defeated in the last few minutes of play by the close score of 39-4. (They were also defeated in the first few minutes of play). Smith, the Senior coach, sums up the defeat as follows: Richardson was ill, Warren Fruit’s celluloid collar was too tight and Leo Feldworth was not playing quite up to form. The Freshmen led by their captain, Bryant, deserve some credit for they played a spectacular game. Some of the fans remarked that the floor was too high for the speedy upper classmen and a great many shots would have been perfect but they hit the ceiling. In the second game the Juniors were far outclassed and didn’t have a suggestion of a chance. They were defeated by the lop-sided score of 17-12. If fouls would have counted as points, the third-year students might have won for Duke Blake alone scored seven personal fouls. Yes, the Juniors would have won, hands down. The two lucky teams came together in the third game. The Freshmen completely outclassed the Sophomores in the first half. In the second stanza the Sophs woke up and scored ten points before the Froshes could find out where they were. Some of the Sophomores say that their defeat may be attributed to a certain Senior boy who came into the gym dressed in green. The Freshies like this color and it was a great boost for their morale. They won, 22-12. Here is the all-awkward team picked by the authorities: Blake ............................ Forward Bardelmeier ......................

The club is exclusively a girls organization and has a membership of about twenty-five. On several occasions the society has delightfully entertained the High School and has also appeared before the public frequently. Let us look forward to as good an organization of its kind for the following year. NO COMMERCIAL CLUB Two of last years organizations disappeared at the end of the year and were not reorganized. There are the Commercial Club and the Pickwick Literary Society. Both of those clubs were very important in the school life of the year 1921 The Stratford Literary Society was reorganized at the first of the year and Rodney Blake was elected president. However little interest was shown by the former members of the club and the society was disbanded. It was organized in the year 1918 in Miss Marie Hiles’ Freshman English class and carried out an active program for five years. fifty-sixTHE TIGER 19 2 2 MARATHON CAMP Helen Hall, Captain Miss Slayback, Guardian fifty-sevenTHE TIGER 19 2 2 OLYMPIAN CAMP Evelyn Bower, Captain Miss Dee, Guardian fifty-eight19 2 2 THE TIGER SENIOR BOYS’ QUARTETTE In the vocal line this year the Seniors have shown exceptional talent. They produced the Senior Boys’ Quartette, consisting of Edwin Fields, first tenor; Lloyd Caldwell, second tenor; Howard Kearney, baritone, and Edmund Wahl, bass. “Ed” has a high clear voice and Lloyd a very strong voice. Howard has a remarkable range and Edmund has a good, deep, strong voice. These four boys have pleasing personalities which are reflected in their singing. It is reported that they have several opportunities to go on the stage, but they prefer to remain in E. 1L S. The quartette made its best appearance at The Tiger benefit show, “19 and Phyllis.’ I’m noted for my kindly heart, I would not hurt a fly, I wouldn’t kill a little flea, I couldn’t see him die. If I should crush a creeping worm, ’Twould make me sad and blue, But I with joy could slay the guy Whose gum gets on my shoe. fifty-nineTHE TIGER----------- - -....— 19 2 2 CORNET QUARTETTE A new organization that made its appearance this year is the Cornet Quartette. It was organized by four boys at the beginning of the year. They are Joseph Ladd, Howard Kearney, Edmund Wahl and Lawrence Glass. During the year they have appeared at a meeting in Worden and one at the Methodist Church in this city. E. H. S. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Athletic Association is the organization that handles the athletic treasury of the school and backs the local teams in all of their enterprises and contests. This year the organization was a decided success. A substantial sum is left in the bank for the organization to begin the season next year. This is partly due to the support that the citizens of Edwardsville and the students of the school gave to the teams and partly to the efficient management of the finances by the association officers. The membership of the body consists of almost everyone in the school. The following are the officers: President .............................. James T. Waters Sec’y and Treas..............................Walter Lueker Coach....................................Wyatt A. Rawlings Boys’ Cheer Leader ..........................

Orchestra this year, it has made rapid progress. Its growth has really been remarkable. It consists of fifteen members of which number thirteen are students of the High School and two are students of the grade school and will enter the High School in two years. The instruments used include string, wind, brass and drums. The members have worked hard to acquire a high degree of perfection. Much credit is due to Miss Regan for her untiring efforts toward making the orchestra a success. BEFORE There are meters of accent And meters of tone, But the best of all meters Is to meet her alone.

We are greatly indebted to those who helped us in every line of our work. Especially we may have reason to thank the business men and firms of Edwardsville and other places who have so liberally contributed with advertising. Advertising is an essential part of a High School year-book; without the ads the subscription price would be prohibitive. Mr. Strebler, the class photographer, has played no small part in helping us with our task. In all of his work he has been most obliging sixty-three19 2 2 THE TIGER and kind. His work cannot be appreciated too much. The printing company and the engraving company both handled their work in a most business-like and punctual manner. Then there are the artists of the High School who have done the designing and drawing work. Among these are Miss Virginia Burroughs, Dustin Griffin, Sherman Ramey and Ralph Silcott. The writers of the High School have also more than done their part this year. They are too numerous to mention. Within the walls of the school are many others who have helped—those who helped in the ticket sale for the benefit and the ones who helped in the subscription drive and sale of the books themselves.

They nurse a feeling for it that feeling “varies inversely with the rank of the student” as Boyle or Charles resembles the attitude that a cat has for its canire second cousins. This would have said. The Senior has seen more exams than the Freshman— he has passed more of them—flunked more—too. Now after all, when the examinations are over, the students says to himself, “Now wasn’t that easy?” Bear this in mind, fellow students, that the teachers are human white people just like the rest of us and hate the exams just as bad if not worse than we do. ,4 ,4 ,4 PROPAGANDA seems to be one of the essQntials of salesmanship nowadays.

In the same year it was promoted into the form of a printed pamphlet of several pages and sold monthly for a few cents a copy. Miss Nellie Bartels was the first editor. She afterward graduated from the Illinois University and taught in the Edwardsville High School last year and the year before. She is now teaching in the Decatur High School, Decatur, Illinois. The first annual edition of The Tiger made its appeal ance in the year 1914 when it was edited by Harold Boeschenstein. This number, though the first of its kind, is considered by many to be the best ever issued. Mr. Boeschenstein followed the vocation of journalism and after graduating from the University of Illinois accepted a position with one of the Alton papers. Thomas Eaton was the editor of the second edition of the annual Tiger. In the two following years, 1916 and 1917, William C. Wayne and Henry Delicate were chosen as managing editors. The Class of 1918 entrusted the position of editor to a girl, the first instance of its kind in the history of the annual. She was Miss Aley Whitson. The editors of the last three years, C. Edwin Stokes, Victor Boeker and Miss Ethel Wentz are all three studying at the present in the universities. Each year has added some new feature to the publication making it bigger and better. sixty-six19 2 2 THE TIGER “What is the purpose of a High School annual?” someone asks and it is a reasonable question, too. In a few lines we will endeavor to show you some of its purposes. The co-operation and harmony with which the classes, organizations and individuals work tends to create a better and more fraternal feeling in the school itself: the volume shows to the outsider what the school is doing and what the different departments mean to the school. If it does not, it is not fulfilling its mission. Probably the most important purpose is to commemorate the school year in the minds of the student body. In years to come you will find that an annual review on a cold wintry evening will recall many of those happy days gone by. You will be a student in High School again. The worry, care and responsibilities of life will for the time being leave you and you can hear the happy laughter of your snhool companions. The High School days are the happiest time of your life. To glance back into this annual in your later life will be a short vacation to the scenes and haunts of your school days. , A NEW SCHOOL On March 5 a special election was held in Edwardsville to authorize the Board of Education to buy a tract of land upon which to build a new High School. The people voted to buy the tract of land on West Street known as the Hadley site. A few days later this tract was purchased by the Eoard according to the instructions of the voters. In time the tract will be one of the most beautiful lots and in one of the best locations in the city. The site is spacious enough to accommodate a large school building and a large athletic field adjoining it. Some of the students in the High School now will probably graduate from the new High School building. sixty-seven19 2 2 THE TIGER MASQUERADE PARTY You knew us, or at least you thought you did until you saw us at the Masquerade Party on October 28. Had you been there or peeped in the windows you would have imagined the whole world had sent its representatives for an international world rally. It seemed that every one wanted to out-do the other in bright colors. A gypsy band, arrayed in the many colors of its tribe, clowns in flowered suits and hallowe’en characters completed one of the most spectacular scenes that the High School has ever witnessed. Who would have supposed that Miss Woods and Miss Weber would be seen tripping around as dainty milkmaids? Is it not far beyond our scope of imagination to sse Miss Willett in a long red wrapper and sunbonnet? But you should have seen the prize winners. Virginia Lehne and Mabel Bollman won first prize as Pierette and Pierot. You really could not have found a better looking couple if you had searched all the theaters of New York. Calvin May as a cruel, bull fighting Spaniard, was awarded first prize for the boys. The second prizes were given to Mary Skalandzunos as a Hawaiian maiden and to “Mary and Sary,” two happy school girls, alias Justin Brady and Melvin Bryant. After the unmasking the eats were served and the rest of the evening was spent in dancing and games. MARATHON AND OLYMPIAN BANQUETS The two girls’ camps opened the season rather late this year with banquets given in the High School Gym. The Marathon Camp, the larger of the two gave their party Tuesday, November 27, under the direction of Helen Hall, the captain, and Miss Slayback, which proved to be one of the most successful parties ever given by them. The Olympians did not hold their banquet until after the Christmas holidays, when it was possibly enjoyed more than if it had been given earlier in the year. Evelyn Bower, the captain, and Miss Dee supervised the work, making it successful and giving everyone a good time. The teams have not been as active as heretofore, although the “camp spirit” has been as evident as in any previous year. seventyTHE TIGER 19 2 2 UNIQUE HIGH SCHOOL RECEPTION Invitations were issued to the parents of every High School student to a meeting at the High School, on February 21. The purpose of this meeting was that the parents might get some idea of our school life and to become acquainted with the faculty. A program was rendered, featuring some of our High School talent, and a talk by Mr. Krumsiek. Several readings were given by Mr. Johnson, of Lebanon College, who visited our school on that occasion. Numerous school songs and yells were also given. After the program, the parents were given an opportunity to visit the teachers in their respective class rooms. The Senior girls, acting as a reception committee, conducted those not well acquainted with our school to the various class rooms, and introduced them to our teachers. Another feature of the evening was the exercises in the gymnasium by the Physical Culture Classes, under the direction of Miss Dee. Dancing followed this, and it stated on the programs that the parents should not allow the students to monopolize the floor. As the guests departed they were requested to stop near the Cooking room door, where coffee and doughnuts were served to them by the teachers. This was the first time that such a meeting was ever held in our High School, but it is hoped that it might become an annual affair. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION PLAYS The Coffer-Miller players of Chicago were in Edwardsville on December 12 and gave two plays in the High School auditorium for the benefit of the Athletic Association. “The Rivals” was given in the afternoon and “The Imaginary Invalid” was given at night. Both of the plays were comedies and each drew a good crowd. A neat little sum was realized for the athletic body which made the financial state look a lot nicer. “19 AND PHYLLIS” FOR TIGER BENEFIT All three floors of the Wildey Theatre were crowded to capacity on Wendesday night, March 28, for The Tiger Benefit show. seventy-oneTHE TIGER 10 22 In addition to the regular picture, Charles Ray in “19 and Phyllis,” the High School offered five acts of vaudeville. Both features were well received and appreciate by the audience. The program included a variety of talent. Edwin Fields, as Professor Yewsta B. Coocoo, made quite a hit with Caldwell, Wahl, Kearney and Burns as his sidelights in a wonder-exciting hypnotic act. Miss Lucille Widicus gave a very entertaining musical reading. The Senior Quartette was in its full bloom. Miss Opal Estes and Miss Mildred Werre sang solos with Miss Gladys Shaw as accompanist. A mixed quartette composed of Lloyd Caldwell, Edmund Wahl, Miss Edna Levora and Miss Beatrice Love. The financial side of the benefit turned out just as well. A little less than a hundred dollars was cleared for the annual. James T. Waters, the Tiger manager, took care of the ticket sale and advertising and made the most of the opportunity to make it a success. MOCK TRIAL PEOPLE vs. GRIFFIN, assault with intent to kill. Dustin Griffin was found guilty of assault with intent to kill in the fall session of the E. H. S., Kangaroo Court. The prosecuting witness was one Oliver Spitze and the attorneys for the state were Lloyd Caldwell and Harris Lynch. The counsel for the defense was James Waters and Elmer Boeker. The case was tried before Miss Irma Willett, the presiding judge. Tmong the important witnesses brought on by the bailiff, Scotty Leuker, were A1 Geers, Mabel Cunningham, Irving Smith, Leo Feldworth, Harriet Delicate, Dodo Nauman and Edmund Wahl. Nauman posed as a doctor who had graduated from a correspondence school. His right to testify in the court was challenged by Attorney Waters. For the first time in the history of the State of Illinois, women were allowed to serve on the jury. Waters made a stirring appeal to the jury that brought everyone in the room to tears. However the hard-hearted jurymen passed “count” up like a lead nickel and returned a verdict of “Guilty.” The lawyer for the defendant filed a motion for a new trial on the grounds that Nauman could not present his credentials as a doctor. NO DISARMAMENT HERE Lloyd Caldwell and Hilbert Nauman won for the negative side in a heated debate on disarmament during the first semester. James Waters and Harris Lynch represented the affirmative. Carl Richardson was the chairman. One of the outstanding points of the afternoon’s discourse was the vivid description of the battlefield by Waters. Caldwell made a name for himself as the “millionaire orator.” The debate was the only one of its kind given before the assembly the year. seventy-two19 2 2 THE TIGER THE WHO’S WHO IN E. H. S.

It belonged to Cyril Benson, a noted curio-collector of New York. The idol had been sold to him when, as a middle-aged man, he had journeyed through India, twenty-five years ago. Now he was what most people would speak of as old. As he sat before his fire on this day in early spring, his white hair pointed to the fact that he was no longer young. It was very thin and stood on end as though rumpled by the nervous passing of a careless hand through it. However, let us examine his face, which completely belied his age. His face was almost bronze in color, pointing to an interest in outdoor life. Under his shaggy brows twinkled merry blue eyes which promised that he would make a very interesting companion to young or old. Now, however, they held a shade of sadness as he gazed into the open fire. There had been a time years ago, when this haunting sadness had never been seen in his eyes. That was before the death of his beautiful wife, eighteen years before. Strong evidence of his faithfulness was given in the facts that his boy had never known a stepmother, and that he had never been quite as jolly since. Except for the rumpled hair his appearance was neat, and he was altogether such a jolly little man as we would expect to see spring from a series of “Foxy Grandpa” pictures. Now, however, his revery was interrupted by a knock at the door. “Come in,” said he, turning his eyes from the fire to the door. In answer to his invitation a young man, who looked to be about twenty-two years of age, appeared. He was tall and well-built. His waving black hair was brushed smoothly away from a broad forehead. From under his heavy black brows shone thoughtful black eyes, which at present looked as if he were much pleased about something. His firm mouth and square chin gave evidence that his was not a weak character, and the healthy brown tint of his skin showed that he, too, was fond of outdoor life. His blue serge suit was faultlessly made and a perfect fit. His brown shoes were of the latest style and looked as though he might use them for mirrors. In his hand he held a straw hat. which was just coming into season. Altogether he was a typical sample of American youth. “Congratulate me, Dad,” said the young man, as he threw his hat at the table and himself into a chair. In his excitement he sat down on a big tiger cat, his father’s special pet, which occupied the chair. “I have made all the arrangements for our trip. Am I not a quick worker?” “You certainly are, Dick,” said Mr. Benson. “You are very like your mother in energy, and I am proud of you. When shall we start?” “We shall start day after tomorrow,” said Dick “It is nice to think of our little hunting lodge in Alaska. The last time we were thbre I was only fifteen, and a corking time I had, too. Do you remember the first bear I shot? I was more afraid of that bear than he was of me, but I had to shoot him to save myself.” “I, too, shall be very glad to go,” said Mr. Benson. “I think I am not yet too old to shoot.” The boy, who was rather restless in his excitement, as was evidenced by his continually moving about, soon jumped up and ran downstairs. The big shepherd dog, Jack, who had hitherto lain concealed in a corner, followed him, and Mr. Benson was left undisturbed, save by the purring of the big cat, which had changed her bed from the chair, where she had been so rudely disturbed, to his lap. He was thinking of the proposed trip when suddenly the strains of lively ragtime began to float up the stairway and through the partly open door. This lively music effectively stopped his meditation, but it was soon changed for the softer and more beautiful strains of classical music, played by the hand of an artist. However, his thoughts were hopelessly scattered. He had just collected them when the music ceased, and almost at the same instant, a maid announced supper. The Bensons went into society a good deal, and when the evening meal was served at other places they knew it should be called dinner. Mr. Benson, however, loved a homelike life, so at home they had dinner at noon, but in the evening they had supper. Nothing more of importance happened until the next evening. All the packing had been done that day. Mr. Benson sat in his study alone save for his cat, Jack, and the little god. Dick had gone to a party which was being given by one of his college friends. The old man was contemplating the little god. Let us steal up behind him and look at it with him. Squat, ugly, and evil looking, it stood on the table before seventy-four19 2 2 THE TIGER him. It was beautiful, only in the shining gold of which it was made, and the large triangular emeralds which formed its eyes. As he gazed on this little image, which was the pride of his collection, he said to himself, “We can not leave it here, it is too valuable. It must go with us.” That night when Dica returned, he noticed that the light in his father’s study was still burning, so he knocked at the door. “Come in,” said Mr. Benson. When Dick had entered and seated himself his father said to him, “I have been waiting for you. I have decided that we must take the little god with us.” If he had been watching the little image on the table he might have imagined that he saw it wink one emerald eye, and leer wickedly at him. “I am willing,” said Dick, “on one condition. If you take the little god, I must take Jack. He will do me much more good than the little god will do you.” Dick knew that his father would take the little god anyway if he wished, but he had decided that this would be a favorable time for asking permission to take his favorite pet. Accordingly he had broached the subject jokingly, although the request was earnest. He was a little surprised when his father answered, “I agree to your condition. I myself have been thinking that Jack would be a valuable addition to our camping outfit. Now we must retire, as we must be up very early tomorrow.” The next morning the Bensons were up very early. Before they left home Mr. Benson did not forget to place the little god in his large suit case, which was already packed to its capacity. Dick also had a large suit case. This was to be a camping trip, and not a very long one, so this was all the baggage necessary. As they walked down the stairs, a servant ahead carrying their suit cases, big Jack trotted behind them, happy in the fact that he was with his young master. Two days later, two men, one young and one old, but both very much excited, swung from a train in a little town in Alaska. From the baggage car bounded a big shepherd dog, who, in his joy, nearly knocked the younger of the two down. It was early in the day when Dick and hi’ father left the train, but they were eager to reach their cabin before dusk. They set out immediately in search of a guide and soon procured an old Indian called White Wing, who promised to stay with them throughout the period of their camp. Before they started on their mar"h they had to buy provisions for their camp. They depended on hunting and fishing for their fresh meat, but they bought coffee, condensed milk, bacon, flour, an.1 a few small necessities. They did not reach their cabin that day. It was dusk of the next day when their tired eyes at last saw something besides snow and ice, and their joy was great when they found that the dark spot was their own cabin. They went immediately inside and soon the Indian guide had a merry fire crackling: in the big fireplace. Mr. Benson was slicing bacon, and Dick, with Jack after him, had gone to the spring for water They had expected to have no fresh meat for supper, but Jack had barely left the cabin when he found a rabbit’s trail. He captured the rabbit, and just as they were about to eat supper he scratched at thj door. Dick ran to let him in, but he was much surprised when the big dog, wet and bedraggled, laid at his feet a large fat rabbit. Supper was delayed until the rabbit could be cooked, and it proved a very welcome addition to the evening meal. We may be assured that Jack received his fuil share of the hot meal, which took away the weariness of all. The day after the Bensons left New York, two men called at their home. One was middle-aged, the other was a young man. Both had dark Eastern faces and almond eyes, and each had a very foreign look. The elder of the two had a face which resembled that of the little god. It was disfigured by an ugly leer, and his eyes had a wicked look, but the younger had a face which, though characteristically Eastern, showed some trace of human kindness, and was very handsome in its strange Oriental style. Had it not been for their modern clothes and their perfect English, the dignified butler who opened the door might well have believed himself confronted by two of the Eastern magicians of “Arabian Nights.” When they were told that the Benson.' had gone on a journey of indefinite length, the leer on the face of the elde” seemed to grow more wicked. The younger man however, asked where a letter would reach Mr. Benson. On being told a lettei would reach him in Alaska, he thanked the old butler substantially and drew the elder man away with him. On leaving the Benson mansion the two dark men went immediately to a hotel, where the younger asked for pens, ink and paper, while the elder smoked in Sil ence. We have not time now to learn tne entire contents of the letter, which was addressed to Cyril Benson. Suffice it to say that it contained a desire to buy the little god, the price to be named by Mr. Benson. Over a week later the young Easterner received an answer to his letter. Mr. Benson expressed his fondness for the little god and its value as a curio, then said he would not part with it for any consideration on earth. When the young Easterne; seventy-five19 2 2 THE TIGER showed this to his companion, the latter said something in an unknown tongue, and on his face was the expression with which an American would say, “I told you so.” Then he remarked in English, “It is my turn now, you have tried anil failed. Now we will try my plan, which cannot fail.” That night the New York home of the Bensons was ransacked. Every room in the house was in disorder. Furniture was torn apart and carpets lifted, the safe in Mr. Benson’s study was blown open; but the housekeeper, who knew all Mr Benson’s affairs, stated that nothing was missing. Evidently the burglars had not found what they were looking for. The next day our eastern friends were seen on the streets of New York for the last time. The face of the elder wore a more decided leer than ever, and as they walked along the younger remarked, “Your plan also has failed. Now it is again my turn. I have decided that we shall go to Alaska.” It was Monday evening, the beginning of the third week spent by the Bensons in Alaska. Mr. Benson and White Wing were fishing through the ice of a river not far away. Dick sat by the fire reading, when suddenly he was disturbed by a low growl from Jack. Glancing through the one small window which the cabin contained, Dick beheld a dark face pressed against the pane. Even as he gazed it disappeared. It was the face of the elder of our eastern friends. Taking his revolver in his hand, Dick ran out of the house, followed by Jack. Behind them the door swung open, and the cold wind, rushing in, blew out the lamp by which Dick had been reading. When Dick reached the window there was no one in sight anywhere around. The only evidence of the intruder was found in the tracks of queerly shaped shoes on the snow. “I can follow these tracks for a few minutes,” thought Dick, “and be back when father and White Wing return.” Accordingly he started away, with Jack at his heels. He had gone but a short distance, however, when he decided that he had better turn back. As they neared the cabin, Jack discovered a rabbit trail and barked excitedly. Inside the cabin, the fire leaped up, revealing the dark face of the other Hindu. Jack’s bark sounded faintly in the distance. The man in the cabin dropped the suit case which he was examining and ran from the cabin, going around the side on which there was no window. He was not a minute too soon. Dick entered, and even in the firelight he saw that something was wrong. He lit the lamp and gazed about him. The covers of the bunks were scattered on the floor, the suit cases were open and their con- tents lay scattered about. Dick was utterly dumbfounded. “What can they want here?” he said to himself. Suddenly his face brightened. “The little god!” he said. He drew a shade over the window, shut and barred the door, then ran to the fireplace. He pressed the end of a log at the end of the fireplace and the log immediately swung out, revealing a hole in the wall. Within stood the ugly little idol flashing and gleaming in the light. “At least, I am thankful that they did not get it,” said he, “for if they had, I should have been soundly scolded for my carelessness.” Then he set about putting the cabin in order. He had just finished his task when his father and White Wing returned. As they washed the tin dishes after a rcarty supper, he told them Of his adventure. “You were too careless,” said his father. “Heap bad men,” said White Wing, “Make um lotta trouble,” when the whole party relapsed into silence. At eight o’clock that night they retired and each went to sleep immediately. Dick was dreaming about an encounter with a polar bear when suddenly a queer odor crept over his senses. Then his dream changed and he seemd to be walking through a field of poppies. From this dream he sank into a heavy slumber. Each of the other men had similar dreams and sank into the same heavy slumber. Even the dog, though he did not dream, was put to sleep by the odor. The cabin was thus left unguarded. What is the eastern drug which has the smell of poppies and causes sleep when it is inhaled ? It was almost noon the next day when Dick awoke. The bunk across from his was empty. In the blanket on the floor the Indian was beginning to wake up, and over in the corner of the room the dog, Jack, yawned lazily and, rising, walked over toward his master. As Dick’s wits all awakened from his slumber, it seemd to him that something was wrong. White Wing, waking up, gave a grunt of surprise and Jack sniffed the air curiously. There was the unmistakable smell of poppies in the air. “Opium,” said Dick, jumping out of his blankets, where he slept like a soldier in his clothes. “Wherever did it come from ?” Then he remembered his adventure of yesterday, and glancing around him he saw that the room was in the wildest disorder, far worse than that of yesterday. Where could his father be? He went to the door. White Wing was already outside. His father’s tracks were not there in the snow, but there were others. Instead of the queer pointed shoes worn by one person, there we.-e the tracks seventy-sixTHE TIGER 19 2 2 of two people who seemed by the marks in the snow, to have been half dragging, half carrying, another man. “Ugh!” said the Indian, “Heap bad men carry away father.” Dick, by looking at the tracks, saw that the guide was right. There was no time to lose. Dick ran back into the cabin. Quickly he made coffee for himself and the guide and then he made some sandwiches. These he rolled up into two packages. One package he gave to White Wing and the other he placed in his pocket. He then took his revolver and said to Jack, “On guard,” and closed the door. Once outside he said to White Wing, “Go look for him. I shall go this way and you may go any other way you like.” So saying he started away, following the tracks left by the intruders. He had walked for some distance and was in a large forest, when suddenly something hit him an awful blow on the head from behind. Without a sound he sank to the ground. When Dick recovered he found himself in a dark cave. He was dizzy and his head ached, but he managed to eat a sandwich, which made him feel better. Then he took out his flashlight and began to examine the cave. There seemed to be no opening. However, when he went around it the second time, he found an opening in the solid rock, but it had been completely covered with dirt and stones. Suddenly the truth dawned on Dick. “Buried alive!” he cried in despair. At first he gave up hope, but after the first fears were over he began to dig frantically. While Dick was going through the forest before his misfortune, the Indian had been examining the caves in the neighborhood. It was about the time when Dick was hit that he discovered one with a stone rolled before the opening. This attracted the attention of the wise old guide, so he rolled the stone away. There, blinking at him in the unexpected light, sat Mr. Benson. They returned to the cabin immediately, where they found Jack still faithfully guarding. As soon as they opened the door and he saw that his young master was not with them, he bounded away. He soon picked up Dick’s trail and finally reached the cave where Dick was imprisoned. In the meantime Mr. Benson and White Wing had become uneasy and had set out in search of the young man. Inside the cave, Dick, exhausted from digging at the frozen dirt, was forced to rest, but on the outside, although unknown to him, his faithful old dog was digging steadily as fast as he could. An hour and a half later Dick wa sstartled to see daylight break through the closed opening. The spot of daylight kept grow- ing larger, until suddenly the digging stopped. The hole was just big enough for him to crawl through. When he reached the outside, the first thing that met his eye was faithful old Jack, lying panting on the snow As soon as the dog had recovered his strength, Dick set out for the cabin, with Jack at his heels. They came around the side of the house just as Mr. Benson and White Wing came up at the front. Dick and his father shook hands very warmly, while the Indian looked on, smiling, and grunted his approval. Forgetful of the cold, they stood outside, while Dick told of his escape. Then it was Jack’s turn. He was nearly overcome with joy at the petting he received from all of them. Even the old Indian took his pipe from his mouth and said, “Ugh, heap good dog,” which was high praise indeed, coming from him. Then they went inside. The first thing that their eyes fell upon was the safe at the side of the fireplace, which was wide open and empty. The little god was gone! Mr. Benson was shocked; he became angry and his anger turned into utter despair. The next day, just as they were packing their suit cases to leave for home to hire a detective, there was a soft knock on the door. When Dick opened it. much to his surprise, the young Hindu stepped inside. He was even more surprised when their enemy handed him the little god. “We are very sorry for the trouble we have caused you,” said he. “It was the wrong god. Thirty years ago in a temple in India there were two little gods on the altar, very much like this one. One night one of the gods was stolen. Ever since that time the greatest detectives of India and those of other countries have been searching for the missing god. Then one day we came upon the man who sold you this one.” “His description of it corresponded exactly to the stolen one, so we have taken all this trouble to get it. Now since we have secured it. we have discovered that it is not the right one. The one for which we are searching has diamond eyes, but this one has emerald eyes, so we have brought it back. As soon as we had discovered our error, we went immediately to the cave where you were imprisoned, but you were gone. How on earth did you ever get out?” Dick explained how Jack had saved h;m and the young Hindu was warm and sincere in his praise of the dog. He even offered to buy Jack, but Dick, of course,’refused to sell him. “Well,” said the young Hindu, “I shall not try to steal him from you. There is only one thing for which an honest Hin- seventy-sevenTHE TIGER 19 2 2 3u will steal, and that is his religion. Now as you are busy I will bid you good-bye. I am especially sorry about the opium trick, which was my companion’s idea.” When he had gone Dick sank into a chair. “Father,” said he, “wouldn’t that get your goat?” After Dick and his father had returned to New York, Dick met the young Hindu again. He told Dick that his evil companion had returned to India. The young Easterner soon became Dick’s close friend. He was a frequent visitor in the Benson home and soon overcame the dog’s dislike for him, so that the dog was almost as fond of him as his master was. Five years later Dick married a beautiful young lady and the little god was the wedding gift from Mr. Benson. From that day to this, it has remained with them. Time has not softened its ugliness, but it seems to Dick that it has lost some of its evil look since the time when his father suggested that they take it to Alaska with them.
