Porter, in sincere appreciation of his great interest in our school life and his cheerful labor with us through three years of our high school course, this volume of the “Tiger” is gratefully dedicated by the class of 1923. 45PROLOGUE We take these few lines to introduce you to the Annual of the Class of 1923. Following will be found the result of much thought and effort, edited and engraved somewhat, and at least printed on good paper. Its success depends as much upon its readers as upon its writers, and, faulty as we know it to be. we hope you will read it. ever mindful of the good that it contains. The purpose of this year-book is to recall what has transpired in the epoch-making year of 1922-1923 in and concerning the above edifice. You have no doubt been present at some of these events, and if this book becomes a source of joy and happiness when other cares are heavily burdening you, our mission is fulfilled. The extent of its fulfillment, adequately, will be judged ten— twenty—thirty years from now by the frequency with which you revert to the following pages. 6THE TIGER CHARLES F.

An’ we Seniors what are said to have the “big head" Cn’ ’member way down in the “grades” the things what he said. An’ do you know he Wuz always that wisest, most ’telligent man C’d discuss weather ’n pol'tics as good ’s anyone can. But if we weren’t keerful ’n didn’t mind the rule. We’d haft to stay in while Dick swept the room, after school An’ he’d ask us what we’d been so very bad about An’ he’d scold a little ’n say “teacher’d get us if we didn't watch out.” An' too just ’s soon ’s new pupils come to attend our High, lie knows in no time attall, their ancestors, family tree, oh my! We kno v his many friends are made with that cheery smile of hiz ’N a fellow c’n tell him troubles too, even a case of heart—gee whiz! An’ he in turn c’n tell us about his long-ago romance great An’ makes us wonder why lie wouldn’t have made a very good “mate" Then when we give a party, Dick comes to turn on the lights Unlock doors, watch our frolic and see’s as there ain’t no fights. I ’spects if weuns tried to grow up to be as nice a man We couldn't do it to “save our necks"—lie’s the “bestest” in all the land! An’ I reckon when some day, this life on earth is o’er, that a Greater One will judge, that Dick deserves this praise—and MORE. —Gladys M. Shaw ’23. 12President LOUIS P.

Hence this account. W e entered this High School in September, as have most classes, but unlike all our predecessors, we came, not “in fear and trembling," but heads up and victory in our hearts. By this, one may readily see that we showed unmistakable signs of superiority from the beginning. Even the town newspaper remarked this phenomenon in a glowing article. During our first year we kept up the high standard which we had set for ourselves and even compelled the faculty to take notice of our efforts. The second year began without any remarkable events. As Sophomores, we now enjoyed the prestige which we had so ably merited in our first year, and we did all in our power to help the poor Freshmen along and to make them feel more at home. Our “Junior" year opened and the class showed itself to be the most progressive ever known in Edwardsville High. The “Junior” play, called “Mary’s Millions” was given at a theatre, a thing never dreamed of before. The “Junior-Senior Banquet,” paid for with the proceeds from the plav, was one of the best ever given, and even in the graduating exercises of the “Class of -2." we shone, for they could scarcely have graduated without our willing and eager aid. Having seen three classes depart from the “Alma Mater” always leaving a few of their members behind, we determined that this should not be the case with us and began our fourth year with unsurpassed zeal. The whole year was one of undiminished activity. We gave a party in the gym for the “Juniors" and later on came our class play, which was a great success. Immediately after the “Class Day” program we entertained the faculty as a parting remembrance. And now that we. in our turn are leaving the scenes of four years of happiness and achievement, we hope that wherever we go, we shall find as much that is really worth while as we have in these four years in E. H. S. In conclusion, we wish to say that although we hate to think of leaving the school forever, we are glad to leave the heritage of the “Senior Class” to the present “Juniors.” for we know that it is a heritage well worth while and we hope that they will appreciate it to the uttermost. So ends our “History” and may each succeeding class feel as loyal and grateful to this school of ours, as we do, the “Class of ’23.” 24 —Dorothy Schwarz ’23.THE FUTURIST DAILY NEWS WORLD’S GREATEST NEWSPAPER Vol. 1 November 17, 1935 Editor—E.

He is counting while his assistant. Siva Worden, teaches Justin Brady to dance. Now I see a theatre—it is all ablaze with lights—yes there is an electric sign bearing this message—Robert Wayne and Martha Schwartz in “Romeo and Juliet.” A path is visible now—there is soft moonlight and sighing breezes—here is romance—and a couple are seated on a bench. I catch the name “Donnell dear.” The girl’s name is hidden. Then—traffic—machines shrieking warnings pedestrians rushing to and fro. Noise—bustle—a wave of a gauntleted hand—and the confusion ceases. Traffic coppess Mary Stokes has arrived at her post! Soft music—perfume—laden air—silvery waters lapping the shores—a great mellow moon—and two newlyweds. The moon goes under a cloud and —!

The coaches are watching—anxious—hoping. The names Earl Stutzer and Em Pfeiffer appear to me. I hear music—it grows louder—ah—a brilliant finale—showers of roses —applause—and then—the art iste is bowing—it is Mile. Raffaelle, the distinguished pianiste. In the crowd I see Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson Geers. Mrs. Geers was formerly Mildred Fruit. Manniquins on parade—the rustle of silk—odor of perfume—the flash of gems— Messrs. Voss and Naumann are holding an exclusive showing for the “400.“ Thelma Schwartz is the most beautiful mannequin. I see paint brushes—a pallette—a painter’s smock—an easel—it is a studio. The occupants enter. Oh, the names are B. Moore and Fern Stutzer. A red light revealing the sign “Exit." It is misty but I see a door—yes. it is a stage door. The two patiently waiting gentlemen are Messrs. Wilbur Doeblin and Harold Dude. O, yes, they have flowers. Crash—a dish broken to bits—an entreaty—another crash—. The Blixens are engager! in friendly combat. Mrs. Blixen was formerly A1 Geers. Then—silence except for the soft patter of sandal-shod feet on the marble floor— the black draperies part—the patter dies away—. And now the red lights flicked and die—the incense fills the air—then silence—then darkness—. —Fred Berner. ’24. 30SOPHAnderson, Carl Anderson, Virginia Baird, Lester Barnett, Alma Berner, James Brendle, Harold Buchta, Chester Burns, Mary Burwell, Birdie Marie Burroughs, Virginia Caldwell.

Jolly does not describe us; rollicking and boisterous fits us better. Have you ever been a freshmen in High School? If you have you will know of the things that are said and done to freshies. If not I will tell you one of the first things that arc said about them. “Oh, they’re only freshies. What more could you expect? They’ll learn sometime.” Yes, we were freshies and we admitted it smilingly for everyone who becomes a senior must have been, at some time in his career, a freshmen. We entered in all the high school activities last year and it was the freshmen who brought up the membership in the clubs and societies of the school. The orchestra surpassed all the clubs and societies with its large number of freshmen members. One of the greatest achievements of our class last year was the basket ball team. The freshman took a part in athletics all through the year and were rewarded for it by being winners in the Scrub Tournament. We beat the seniors in the first game by thirty-five points, the score being thirty-nine to four. We then played the sophomores, the winners of the junior-sophomore game, and beat them by ten points, the score being twenty-two to twelve. September, 1922, found the pupils returning to school. Among them were the freshies of the year before. Hut we were sophomores now, that is the majority of us, some of course, as is the case with large classes did not receive enough credits in their freshman year and others did not return to school at all. We felt much better and more comfortable this year than we did last year, for we were no longer victims in a freshman class to be jeered and laughed at by the higher classes; instead a new class had entered the high school and its members were now forced to endure the same ordeals that had befallen us. And it is with strong determination to add honors to our class and school that we climb the ladder of knowledge. We are as lively as ever and expect to play a prominent role in the benefits and joys of high school life. 33THE FRESHMEN’ Ahrens, Mildred Ashby, Edna Aubrecht, Dolores Aubrecht, Ladimir Ax, Clarence Barnett, Esther Bartels.

We entered the assembly timidly wondering it the awful tales about the way they treated the freshmen were true. After entering each of us found to our delight that there were dozens of other freshmen just as timid as we were. In fact there were so very many of us that we received the distinction of being the largest class to enter E. H. S. After entering and going the first day or two, we got down to work and were initiated into the mysteries of Latin and Algebra. (In fact, one freshmen girl imbibed so much Algebra that she dreamed that the score of a basket ball game was 8 to 8 in our favor. All our illusions regarding teachers were shattered. We expected to find demons in a human form, but instead we found that they were only humans whose business it was (at times) to make life hard for us. Most of the time we actually had fun. We learned all the songs and yells and imbibed true High School spirit. When Christmas came, teachers and pupils breathed a sigh of relief and hurried home to see if they would be forgotten by Santa Claus. But of course that old gentleman forgot no one and all returned happy, each feeling that even in that short vacation that he had forgotten all that he had ever learned. There “came a day” (as the movie subtitles say) when we had exams. The brighter ones had no fear because they didn’t have to take them anyway. The duller ones entered classrooms with a “grin and bear it” smile on their faces. Some came out with the smile while some—oh, why do over ancient history ? We were glad to see the new semester. We were also glad to see the preps, because they reminded us that there were others younger than ourselves. Keep your eye on ’26! They’ll surprise the whole world some day! —Mary Sebastion ’26. For Worry Take a Walk The next time worry claims you, Straighten up and take a walk; It’s useless to keep brooding, And above all—do not talk. When once you’re in the open, Fill your lungs brimful of air, Enjoy each breath and motion. Taken thus, with time to spare, Exercise will harmonize All your thoughts, then you’ll agree That worry is expensive, And that happiness is free. However great your trouble, Do not give up in despair, There’s something which will help you— Take a walk in God’s fresh air. —Willis Schroeder, '23. 38To The Juniors We’re a class of highest honors One that none can ever excell. At working we’ve a record At learning we never quell, We know just what to do and say Whate’er the place may be. We know when it’s fitting to be gay And when to be sad, you see We’ve heard the old, old adage “It’s a smile makes the world go roun’ ” Well we’ve tried the cheerful visage And we've also tried a frown, Our laudable ways and expressions Are the talk of the whole school. Our spirits know no depressions While we mind the golden rule, The old world may spin on its axis Round and round as before, But never shall there be a class Like that of ’24. —Mabel Cunningham ’24. 40ORIGINALITY PLUS i Jimmy Morrison was a very normal looking and rather noisy Junior. Both “normal" and “noisy” are characteristic of Juniors. Freshmen are afraid to talk. Sophomores talk, hut not noisly (?) and Seniors, being quite over-come with the dignity of their positions, refrain from anything that mere mortals usually indulge in. This warm October afternoon found Jimmy pressing his trousers! Trousers are always getting out of crease, thought Jimmy, and well, baggy trousers aren’t looked upon favorably by the faculty in whose good grace one must always keep, especially if in everlasting danger of “flunking" and they are certainly not looked upon favorably by the opposite sex. Jimmy pressed his trousers for both reasons but chiefly because of the latter reason and to be more exact—because of one particular “reason” out of the entire group of “reasons.” Jimmy finished one pair and then making sure that no one could come in unexpectly, he drew forth from under his bed. a rather bulky package which he slowly proceeded to open. “Oh! how exquisite” some frivolous flapper might have exclaimed. But not so Jimmy, lie eyed the contents of the package with evident disgust and then held to view a pair of Valentino Trousers. They were of blue velvet trimmed with bright red satin, inserted in the leg; cunning little black tossels, and such a darling blue sasb, all trimmed with fringe and everythin’. Quite enough to delight the heart of any male flapper but— Ordinarily Jimmy was far too sensible to wear such an outfit but girls— especially if one likes a girl—(and Jimmy certainly liked Shirley Crawford) —are apt to turn the heads of the most sensible young men to attempt many otherwise stupid things—just to please her “dontcha know —and that is just what Shirley Crawford had done. She had driven Jimmy to the extremity of wearing Valentino Trousers! “Gosh and to think I’m gonna wear them things tonight” said Jimmy to himself. “I’ll look like a fool but—hang it! I’d make myself look like a prune if Shirley would only speak again." For Shirley Crawford had refused to speak to Jimmy simply because she liked “original” clothes, “original” friends! If Jimmy wanted her, he had to be different, unique, individual—so she said and so Jimmy, to be original had decided to dress as Rodolph Valentino and try to win the prize as the “most original” at the Hallowe’en Party that night! 4123 THE TIGER TO ii Bob Reynolds was another Junior—quite normal and noisy—Jimmy’s room-mate and general nuisance. He was one of those extremely likeable fellows who would do anything for you—but generally forgot to do it! Not that he wanted to forget—far be it from him—but generally did forget, so— what could one do about it? Bob was like Jimmy—in one way. He thought Shirley Crawford was a very nice girl! Now why do you suppose they couldn’t get along when they agreed so (?) nicely? Search me but they didn’t, especially on this day for the “most original” Miss Crawford was to be escorted to the part)- by Bob! And Bob didn’t have a costume! But why worry? Jimmy would have one and Jimmy wouldn’t want to go so very bad, since Shirley didn’t speak, and he wouldn’t rage along after he discovered the theft and—Jimmy was a “good" fellow; he'd forgive him all right and— Bob had plenty of excuses to ease his conscience. Most Juniors have, especially when they haven’t appeared at school on a certain day. when they were certainly not sick and when—Oh! Bob was a very normal Junior in this respect! So promptly at half past six Bob slipped out of the room with a large bundle awkwarly concealed under his coat and all the way down the hall he kept saying to himself: “O gosh, Jimmy won’t care so awfully much and he won’t—” III Jimmy came home at a quarter of seven, after having eaten a rather hurried supper and after tossing coat and hat in a chair, was already to become “original.” At last he would prove to Shirley that he was “original that he could do things that he was—Jimmy could have raved on for hours but time was flying and so, with a light heart, he hastened to don the “original” costume. But—Jimmy scrambled under the bed, scrambled out again; switched on the light; muttered excitedly about “things bein’ awful queer!” —scrambled under the bed—out again—became more excited—and finally sat flat in the middle of the floor his hair hanging in his eyes; his head lying in his palms in a most dejected manner. His Valentino Trousers were gone and with them went all hope of being original—Bob—O! if he could only lay his itching hands on Bob! and Shirley—he groaned when the thought came of Shirley (how cruel are the pangs of youthful love). Finally, he rose and having seated himself in an arm chair, he tried to think of some original costume—O drat original costumes—any costume would do just to go to the party and meet Bob. But no matter where he looked he saw trousers—Valentino Trousers, leg trousers—little trousers, Bob’s old trousers, his own trousers—all the trousers there ever were! 42However, the name o’ Morrison is Irish so it is, and when an Irishman gets “mad” (not angry) he always finds a way. So at a quarter of eight Jimmy Morrison arrived at the party in one of the queerest costumes ever worn by a student—and some students are apt to wear some rather queer costumes ! IV When Boh saw Jimmy, all his excuses about “Jimmy forgiving him on the morrow” and so forth, went sailing straight out of his head and instead, he vaguely wondered whether Jimmy would kill him outright or torture him to death. Then he noticed the costume. Where on earth did he get the idea ? “Gosh” exclaimed the victim-to-be, forgetting for a moment his fast approaching doom—“gosh, that sure is original!” And vice-versa, when Jimmy saw Bob, he glared with all the fury an irate Irishman is capable of— yes, he glared until he gave the crowd the once-over then he—laughed! Why? Because the party was so original. There, in a corner, stood a very tame looking sheik, wrapped in sheets,—borrowed, perhaps, from roommates—and looking extremely uncomfortable. Also, in a small group stood three—just three—very original imitations of Rodolph alentino. Indeed, thought Jimmy very sarcastically, the party was a mixture of Movie Fans, and E. M. Hull admires! Jimmy’s costume, on the contrary was not to be duplicated and on account of its originality, created a sensation, Little Miss Wendle, of the faculty, said that she really thought Jimmy’s costume represented the five races of man—for didn’t he have on a— But Jimmy now knew what he represented. That hadn’t occurred to him before. Suppose someone had asked! Ye Gods! When the decisions of the judges were announced Jimmy’s costume was awarded the prize for being the most original. Immediately after answering the judges’ questions concerning his blackened face. Chinese jacket, Indian moccasins, ordinary trousers and murderous looking Malaysian hunting knife, which an uncle who traveled extensively had given him, and after telling the judges very solemnly that “he had spent many days preparing his costume” and that he really intended to represent the five races of man since he was of a very studious (?) turn of mind,” Jimmy feeling very haughty and dignified, and unjustly scorned set out to humilate. as he thought, beyond measure the most “original” Miss Crawford. But “the best laid plans o’ mice and men, gang aft' a’ gley,” and so Jimmy’s did—because—well—because Shirley had eyes! Eyes may be mischievous, sad, angry, wicked and so on but when eyes are soulful (for so Jimmy said Shirley’s were) they may work wonders where other eyes wouldn’t have a chance. And so it came to pass that when Jimmy saw Shirley’s “soulful” eyes. 43THE TIGER all his thoughts of scorn, humiliation, domination and so on, vanished into the air and he stood before Shirley, rather abashed and said—nothing, and Shirley—she said precisely the same thing! But finally, after mustering up enough courage. Shirley said—“Jimmy— you know—well—I think—why—you’re costume is—well—O, Jimmy, you’re just originality plus, that’s all!” And Jimmy, like all good Irishmen, grinned—and said fervantly under his breath, “God bless Bob Reynolds!” —Fred Berner. ’24. THOUGHTS DURING AN ASSEMBLY PERIOD Nothing to read and I don’t want to work. Might as well do the usual thing—nothing. 1 hat girl in the Senior Section is very industrious with her vanity case. I wish a dog would walk in the assembly just to break the monotony. It would be pretty hard on the dog. though somebody in the back of the room is humming Mr. Gallagher. I’m always so hungry after eleven o’clock that I can’t hum anything excepting “Home Sweet Home,” and the mess call. 1 hey oughtn t to let Fords come within a mile of the school because they disturb the peaceful harmony of the home of knowledge chasers. 1 wish that girl would put her vanity case away. She makes me nervous. I wonder v hv some people have red hair. 1 oo much exposure to the sunlight, I suppose. That Freshman has two books open on his desk. One is a history, the other is written by Zane Grey. I bet he is reading the history. Juicy Fruit is a pretty good preventive of lockjaw. Some girls seem to think so anyway. I hat Senior is going to take up painting when he gets big. I know because he’s been studying the wonderful green color on the walls of the Assembly the whole period. 1 wish they would open a cafeteria in this school. It would save a good many lives. 1 believe. 1 1 go to sleep but 1 m afraid the mighty hand of a teacher would disturb my slumber or that some I reshman would hit me on the ear with a chewing gum wrapper. 1 hat lob in the front seat must have stolen my industrial ability, lies read his irgil eight times and is now trying to memorize the vocabulary. That Senior in the red sweater needs an alarm clock. He’ll make a good example for the 1 reshman. Well the bells going to ring for that Virgil shark has quit working. 44 —Charles Heuter ’24.f®p THE TIGER TO “SOAPSUDS, SACRIFICE AND SUCCESS” If you. my readers, have never come into contact with the aroma of soapsuds on a Monday morning, or ever made a sacrifice, whether great or small. I fear you will never make a success of your life. Every morning was washday at the Emerson’s humble dwelling, for “widow Emerson” washed for a living. In other words she “took in" washings. Her husband died, leaving her helpless and penniless with a family of live. As the children grew older it seemed harder than ever to finance them. Ru she was determined to give them all a good education no matter what the cost would be to her. It hurt her pride very much to have to wash for a living but she was ever ready to sacrifice for others—and here you will find the first sacrificing character in this story. Bruce, the eldest, a lad of 18, should be. as any lad of 18. a help to his hardworking mother but—instead, he is very head strong and indolent, and makes it a point to get what he wishes no matter what the cost may be to his poor over-worked mother. In Donald. Mrs. Emerson’s son of 16. she found one on whom to lean. He possessed all of the characteristics which were lacking in Bruce. Early in the morning before sunrise, he was up helping his mother. Many a morning he helped her over the steaming soapsuds, while Bruce lay in bed until school time. They both attended Brookdale High School, and as it happened, were both in the same class—Juniors. Owing to Bruce’s shiftless habits he was two years behind in his work. He boasted to his many boy friends that it was rather convenient for him. And indeed it was! His conversation with his younger brother was similar every evening. “Say Don, have you your Latin for tomorrow?” I can’t make “heads or tails" out of it." Never mind trying to explain it. just slip me your written transcription of it—that's a good fellow.” And so the sacrificing “Don" would help him along time after time, and only with his help was Bruce able to carry his work. At school Bruce, with his happy-go-lucky manner, and good looks easily won for him the honor of being the most popular student. The girls admired his good looks and the boys admired him for his athletic skill, hor he was by far the best Basket Ball player that Brookdale could boast and the Basket Ball season was in full swing. But what of Donald? He was so quiet and reserved that he was slower to make friends. But those that he did make found in him the true qualities of friendship. Because he did not enter into athletics with the spirit that his older brother manifested, he was called a “sissy." In reality he hurried home 45after school hours to help remove part of the remaining clay’s work from his mother’s shoulders, and he did not feel it would he fair to her to stay at school and practice to make the team. However, because lie was so energetic and he did so want to make the team, he rigged up some barrel hoops in the hack yard and here with neighbor hoys, he practiced whenever he could spare the time. Bruce laughed at his foolish ideas and would not lower his dignity by playing on such a court. But Donald had appreciative audiences in the smaller children of the neighborhood. especially Mary Louise. Mary Louise was the girl next door. Her “laughing eyes and curly hair” had stirred up emotions within Donald ever since she had moved there. She, it was, who praised his playing and each time it left him more determined to succeed. All of Brookdale High School was astir! The Basket Ball tournament was going “full blast.” Brookdale had won every game so far. Bruce, the star player was at his best, and had it not been for him. the scores would not have stood as they did. It was the evening of the last game. The championship lay between Brookdale and Pennington. The teams were so evenly matched that at the end of the first half, the score stood 10-10. The teams returned from the floor and both were urged on by their respective coaches. The third quarter was about up when—Brookdale had to call “time.” The rooters were not alarmed at that because the teams were both fighting so hard that some of the players had dropped from sheer exhaustion. Only a second and they were ready to enter into the fight again, all but one—Bruce could not walk back to his place. He had broken his ankle! He was carried off the floor after trying in vain to walk about. Cry after cry arose from the crowd, for who could possibly take his place? To the Brookdale rooters, the game was lost to them. A few seconds elapsed. The referee blew his whistle. Everyone looked to see who was to take Bruce’s place. Surely it could not be—yes, it was “Sissy” Emerson! Hiss after hiss greeted him as he ran onto the floor. The game was continued. Pennington made a basket! The score was 10-12 in their favor. Their rooters fairly went mad with joy. In another second they had thrown a free throw and made it! Then the energy which was stored up in Don gave way. He was not goin$ to let the game be lost so easily on his account. It had taken him those few seconds to get into the fight. The ball came towards him. He didn’t measure the distance between himself and the basket. He only knew about where it was. So his finely developed arms, made so by hard rubbing and wringing over steaming soapsuds, threw the ball in that direction. A long silence prevailed. It seemed to him an age and then, a great noise arose! He had made it! And not only that but he had made the first sensational “long shot” in the tournament. But Pennington was still ahead and only two minutes remained in which to play. A foul on a Pennington player was called. This meant two throws for Brookdale. The ball was pushed into Don’s 46hands. He waited a second, took careful aim and shot just as he had practiced in the back yard. The result was the same—a basket. A vision of Mary Louise came before him. He seemed to see her clapping her hands and hear her cry of joy just as in the games in the hack yard. He knew she wasn’t here to watch him now because she was too poor to pay the price of admission. As he aimed the second time he thought of her and when we begin to think of others and forget ourselves, success is bound to come. A second basket! A pistol shot! The game was over! Confused cries of joy mingled with those of disappointment came to Don’s ringing ears—then all was black! He had collapsed. But Brookdale had won the championship by one point! And after the best player had been injured. Don had all his life sacrificed for his brother with seemingly honor. Now that he had taken his brother’s place he had made of himself a hero. But only the few that knew how sacrificing he wras at all times could appreciate the honor that had been placed upon him. The enthusiastic rooters did not see the soapsuds and sacrifice in his life. All they saw was his success. And, as Mary Louise told Donald very confidently, “it was those first two things that helped you to succeed.” And, Don agreed with her simply because—well, it was so very easy to agree with her. —Gladys M.

Lela Christy The Science club was organized on November 14. 1922. by Mr. Henry L. Porter to further interest in scientific subjects our High School. The development has been rapid but earnest, thus forming a large, efficient club. The programs of general meetings were planned as a means of entertainment, education and inspiration. They included talks and demonstrations by outside speakers as well as general discussions by the members themselves. “All work and no play,” however, would be a poor motto for any club, and we are glad that ours included much play. Each program took up some phase of science and one open meeting was held on Radio. A radio canvas was made of Edwardsville and all homes with receiving sets were located on a large map. Professor Glasgow of Washington University who has made an extensive study of Radio gave a very interesting talk on that subject. A film showing the workings of the audion was also shown and the local dealers had exhibits of the latest ap- 50 pparata.THE TIGER SENIOR GIRLS’ DRAMATIC CLUB OFFICERS President ............................. Gladys M. Shaw Secretary-Treasurer ................... Della M. Epping After the disbanding of the Marathon and Olympian basket hall camps, the Senior girls were not satisfied to be without any girls’ organization whatever, hence, the Senior Girls’ Dramatic Club was organized. The main object of the club was to promote a deeper interest in the study of Drama and at the same time, apply this study in entertaining the rest of the High School at various times during the year, by giving several one-act plays. The first given was “Our Aunt From California” and the second, “Aunt Matilda’s Birthday Party,” under the good direction of Miss Gewe. Both were great successes and we hope that the Senior girls in other years to come will continue the Senior Girls’ Dramatic Club. 51THE TIGER GLEE CLUB Officers President ..............................................

How true this is in our everyday life; but not true with the Tiger Staff of 1923. Everyone has done his share, and we also wish to thank Dustin Griffin and Edward Kane for the good work they have done as staff artists, as well as the many contributors who have so willingly spent their time and effort to make the 1923 “'1 iger" a success. If you can’t boost, don’t knock, for that is not the true school spirit. Mr. A. H. Strebler, the class photographer, has helped the staff in every way he could. We cannot show our appreciation too much for his untiring efforts. We also wish to thank our numerous advertisers for their kind cooperation in our task.

Spilman OUR NEW HIGH SCHOOI Edwardsville is to have a new High School which will he all that an ideal High School should be. Not that our present one hasn’t been a good one. far from it. hut that we shall have a new one that will he adequate enough to provide for the different departments of High School on a larger scale. Exceedingly crowded conditions exist in our present edifice, although it is a beautiful building and we have pointed it out with pride. Our athletic activities have been hindered the past year or two for lack of equipment and room to carry on successful football, basket ball, etc. On our new school grounds we shall have sufficient space for a large campus. At present two large tennis courts have been contsructed on part of the new campus. In the new school we shall also have a gymnasium large enough to facilitate better indoor sports. The new assembly will also be able to seat all of the pupils. As it is in the present school conditions are so crowded that a large number of pupils have to sit out side of the general assembly hall. The only regret that some of us have is that the new school will not be completed before some of us graduate. We will almost be tempted to come back and take post-graduate courses. We are confident that with the addition of the new school building to the rest: of the newly erected buildings in the city, Edwardsville. Illinois, will be on the map in big letters. 56PARENT-PUPIL-PEDAGOGUE-PARTY PROGRAM 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. October 16, 1922.

The members of the “fairer sex" felt somewhat slighted, but never-the-less, on the eve of December 19. the boys enjoyed a “sumptuous spread.” The following menu does justice to this last statement. MENU Breaded Chops Mushroom Sauce Timbals of Creamed Peas and Carrots Stuffed Potatoes Hot Rolls Butter Plum Pudding Vanilla Sauce Coffee Decorations—Holly and Candles , , , JUNIOR-SENIOR PARTY February 13, 1923. The Seniors on this date lowered their dignity and entertained the Juniors with a Valentine party in the “gym.” It being a said Valentine party, the members of both classes in attendance, were presented with a “token of love.” Some of them, (the Juniors) couldn’t imagine who in the world could have been so thoughtful as to send them a Valentine. The Seniors finally had to inform them that the said “tokens” had been bought in the "bulk.” They (the Juniors) were very disappointed, but soon forgot all of their troubles when the music started up which goes to show that the expression “music can soothe the savage beast" is correct. (?) Being the 13th, it seemed an unlucky evening for some of the Senior boys, but otherwise, the party was pronounced a decided success. 59FACULTY FUN And w h could not the faculty indulge in some "tun” once in a while? Just because they look dignified is no reason why they have to act that way all of the time. At various times in the year the faculty have been entertained by certain members of said faculty. One evening they enjoyed a weiner roast, another Miss Dee entertained them after school with some products of the Domestic Science Section. Principal Krumsiek had a group of the faculty at a time over at his home to a dinner. The largest facultv parties were a combination of all the High School teachers and the grade teachers. The High School teachers entertained the grade teachers in the gymasium one evening and another evening the grade teachers entertained vice versa. So. you see. they do not lack for “fun” at all. Some pupils have the vague idea that the faculty have “fun" in “flunking” said pupils, but in reality they are a good bunch and more considerate than we shall ever realize until we are out of school, probably. j j DRAMA The Senior Girls’ Dramatic Club, was organized early in the second semester for the purpose of furnishing eighth period entertainment at various times during the year. The first playlet was given Friday, March 30. Seven girls out of the club presented “Our Aunt From California.” CAST Felecia Needy ................ Rosaline Needey ..............

To “top off’’ the new organization, a party was planned for February 22, and about 50 girls enjoyed an evening of fun. They were right in style with a “Bandanna” luncheon. This was composed of sandwiches, pickles, and cookies done up in a gav bandanna. Next day at school, these gay kerchiefs flourished in all of their glory. This year two Senior girls and two Junior girls have organized a quartette and under the leadership of Mrs. Powell, promises to he the best girls’ quartette we have ever had.

GIRLS’ QUARTETTE For several years the High School has been without a girls’ quartette. I.ast year four of the Senior boys made up a quartette and rendered good selections on various programs during the school year. The members are: First Soprano .................... Beatrice Moore Second Soprano .................... Gladys Shaw First Contralto .................. Mabel Bollman Second Contralto............................Leta Glass 61THE TIGER COACH H. C. HUFFORD Much credit is due Mr. Hufford in return for his splendid work in coaching the athletes of E. H. S. this year. His untiring and patient efforts have played a very important role in our athletic victories. Coach Hufford began his work early in the season and although handicapped considerably with lack of material “stuck” faithfully to his work. He has made an individual study of each man on his teams and has directed attention to each one. Although Mr. Hufford has been here but one year he has done “wonders” for E. H. S. and we owe him an unlimited amount of gratitude for his continued and valueable services during the entire season. 64THE TIGER FOOTBALI Herein lies the reason by which we are able to say that our football season of 1922 was a success. With an inexperienced squad it was foolish to expect a “wonder Eleven.” and yet. noting the development and improvement in the individual players, one must acknowledge that wonders were accomplished. To those men who faithfully gave every ounce of their ability and remained loyal to the end. always keeping in condition, let them mark it down, their labors have not been in vain. From the point of view of winning games this season was a discouraging one. we having lost every game but one. In the Belleville game our team showed its true worth and won by fighting every minute of the game. Several times Belleville was only a few yards from our goal but each time our team met the emergency and held them. Isaacs line plunging was a feature of the game. Although defeated in the Benld game our team played a wonderful game. An eighty yard run by Isaacs in the last minute of play was a feature of the game. This year football was one of the specialities of the new coach. Mr. Huf-ford, through whose efforts the development of the team was possible. Isaacs was elected captain and he proved to be the outstanding star of the team As only a few of the fellows graduate this year E. H. S. may look forward to a more successful year on the football field next terjn. TENNIS CLUB The 1922-23 athletic season of E. H. S. witnessed the inauguration of a new feature in sports when a tennis club was formed by our principal. Mr. Krumsiek. Although it holds only a minor place in school athletics, many students signed up and much interest was manifested. Preparations for tennis courts was then begun on our new school grounds, and within a few weeks completed and ready for play. A meeting of the club was held on April 18. and the following officers elected : Elmer Phieffer ................ President Fred Berner .................................. Treasurer 65, s , , . Rip saw! Rip saw! Rip saw bang! We’re the kids of the Edwardsville gang We’re rough, we’re tough, we wont take a bluff 67 Nay!—Edwardsville!THE TI6ER BASKETBALL Basket ball is the chief high school sport and is always known as such over the state. Edwardsville seems to make basket ball players and this season was no exception to the rule as E. H. S. had, probably, the best team they ever put on the floor. Although the team did not get going until late in the season it was the coach’s aim to produce a tournament team and he certainly succeeded. JERSEYVILLE, 20— E. H. S., 13 This was the first game of the season and was played on the Jerseyville floor. Our fellows did not work together and a few lacked experience but they showed prospects of a fast peppy team. WOOD RIVER, 20—E.H.S., 9 E. II. S. played their first game at home with the fast Wood River team. Our five did not seem to be organized very well and although they fought hard they were unable to hold their opponents. BELLEVILLE, 29—E. H. S., 24 Our team showed much improvement in this game and we were winning until the last five minutes of play when Gundlach of Belleville scored five successive field goals. Isaacs played exceptionally well, making 12 of our 24 points. ALTON, 35—E. H. S„ 14 'I he next game was with Alton, in which our team could not manage to “get going.’’ Several substitutions were made which made it easier for Alton to win. NASHVILLE, 48—E. H. S.,16 We have no alibi; they beat us. COLLINSVILLE, 24—E. H. S., 9 On January 5, the Collinsville team accompanied by a carload of rooters came to Edwardsville. Our coach was beginning to get the boys under hand although they played a fast clean game were defeated. 68THE TIGER TO GRANITE CITY, 18—E. H. S., 17 The next week our first and second team went to Granite confident of a double victory. Our second team came up to our expectations, easily winning their game 15-9. Stutzer played a wonderful game and showed that he was of first team calibre. The final game was the hardest fought one of the season. Our combination had started working. The E. H. S. fellows were leading until the last minute of play when Granite City scored a long field goal making the final score 18-17 in their favor. HILLSBORO, 7—E. H. S„ 17 Our first victory was an easy one, our boys outclassing by far their opponents. It was a slow one-sided game but was the turning point of the season. MADISON, 27—E. H. S., 20 We went into this game sure of winning but our boys were tired out from the games the preceding two nights and Madison took home the bacon with a margin of 7 points. WOOD RIVER, 12—E. H. S., 11 This was a game of hard luck for Edwardsville, as Isaacs was unable to be with the team. Stolte played an exceptionally good game but Wood River managed to beat us by one point. JERSEYVILLE, 25—E. H. S., 46 This was the first game in which our all star combination began working. The brilliant and fast team work of our team was too much for Jersey-ville and we won by a 21 point lead. ALTON, 22—E. H. S., 28 The fans say that this was the best game played on the home floor. Everyone was behind the team which played wonderful basket ball in every respect. It was a very exciting game every minute of the time and the enthusiasm of all was at the highest pitch at all times. GRANITE CITY, 15—E. H. S., 46 This was another double-header with Granite and both games proved easy for our fast teams. Our first and accurate team work caused Granite to suffer one of the worst defeats given her this year. Everyone was greatly pleased with the overwhelming victory over one of our bitterest athletic rivals. 69MADISON, 9—E. H. S„ 16 The next game was played at Madison where the gymnasium was so small that our team had a hard time keeping out of each others way instead of playing basket ball. The concrete floor was also a great handicap. BELLEVILLE, 34—E. H. S., 28 The E. H. S. five lost a slow hard luck game to Belleville, being defeated by a score of 34-28. Our forwards just couldn’t hit the basket and seemed to be out of place on the large Belleville floor. NASHVILLE, 37—E. H. S., 28 On the following day the team went to Nashville and played a clean hard fought game only to lose by a nine point margin to this star team. The girls proved a great handicap to Isaacs at Nashville. COLLINSVILLE, 22—E. H. S., 17 We went to Collinsville in a special car confident of victory, but being handicapped by the absence of Isaacs we were defeated by a close score. It was a fast hard fought game in which Stolte and May starred. HILLSBORO, 14—E. H. S., 70 We closed our basket ball schedule by defeating Hillsboro by one of the largest scores ever made on the High School floor. It was necessary to use an adding machine to keep track of Miller’s goals. This game gave our team lots of pep for the tournament. CALVIN MAY Kelly captained the Orange and Black team this year just as efficiently as he played his position as guard. He was not a big point-maker—his object was to keep the other fellow from making the points. The duty will fall upon Tubby to lead the team next year. 70THE TIGER ORVILLE ISAACS Isaacs, playing at running guard again this year, was a conscientious worker and exhibited cool headwork and keen judgment in selecting plays. Isaacs seems to be the favorite of the girls as well as all the fans. He put to use his experience of last year and soon proved to be one of the best men on the team. He was a player who could always be depended upon to be on the job. especially in cutting down interference and breaking up the opponent's plays. He leaves us this year as he is a Senior and his place will be a difficult one to fill. He was chosen guard on the district all star first team. KERMIT MILLER Buck is another of the E. H. S. stars that gained for himself a high place in the eyes of everyone. He has a wonderful eye for baskets and his dribbling is unsurpassed. He very seldom lost his head and always was found in the midst of the fray. This is Miller’s last year and he sure will be missed on the B. B. team. He was chosen all star forward at Wash. U. and given honorable mention for the first team at the district tournament. WILBUR STOLTE This is Stolte’s third year on the varsity and he has proved to be one of the best forwards that E. H. S. has ever produced. Wib is a fellow that can always be depended upon —when he once got the ball we were sure of a basket. He can sure cover the floor and is able to shoot from most any position. He was chosen forward on the first all district team and on the Wash. U. all-star. 71EARL STUTZER This was Stutzer’s first year on the E. H. S. team and he sure made good. Stutz’s value was not discovered until late in the season hut he made rapid progress and played in all the games at both tournaments. We sure hate to lose Stutz this year. FRANCIS FOLTZ Although this is Preacher’s first year with the team he has made a howling success at the forward position. He has a good eye for the basket and will be missed next year. JOSEPH KOCHANSKI Joe only appeared in a few games, but he was always waiting for another chance. Joe is only a Junior and so he has one more year with us and he shows promises of being a strong man on the team next year. 72JOHN CLINE This was Cline’s first year on the E. H. S. team and he made a good start. Cline is only a Sophomore and so he has two more years to be with us.

Edwardsville’s first game was played with Alton. This was a hard fought game on the part of both teams, Edwardsville coming from behind in the second half and defeating Alton by a score of 24-14. Stolte probably played the best game of basket ball in his career. In our second game we defeated Belleville who was claimed to be one of the best teams entered. Edwardsville played a much more consistent game than their opponents. The final score was 29-11. This victory put us in the semi-finals. Our game with Mascoutah proved to be a much harder game than we expected but we managed to keep in the lead throughout the game winning by the score 23-12. The final game was a battle from the start to the finish. Edwardsville being handicapped by a much harder schedule than Chesterfield who had had all easy games. At the end of the first half we lead 13-11. In the last half we lead for a while but Chesterfield had a lucky streak and won by a score of 16-15. This was a very great dissappointment to the Edwards-villc fans who had counted on winning the tournament, however this was the best showing ever made by E. H. S. at any tournament. WASHINGTON U. TOURNAMENT We accepted an invitation to attend the Washington U. Tournament in which 36 teams—the best out of the Mississippi Valley took part. Our first game with Maplewood was a slow and uninteresting one, neither team being up to form. The final score was 17-14 in our favor. Our team got going in the evening game when we played the fast Western Military Acadamy team who had drawn a bye. This team had been picked as a probable winner but our team proved too much for them. Buck Miller played his best game of the season scoring 19 points out of the 31. Western was defeated 31-21. In the game against Keokuk, the district champions from Iowa, Edwardsville probably played the most consistent game of the season. Both teams played cool and scientific basket ball, Edwardsville leading throughout the game. The game ended with the score standing 32-18 in our favor. After we defeated Keokuk we were almost sure of hitting the finals. 74°) 23 THE TIGER Our team met its Waterloo, however, when it came up against West Frankfort. As in the district tournament our defeat was due to lack of endurance. We had had three hard games and were worn out when we hit West h rank-fort, one of the best teams at the tournament, they having beaten Farina who lost to Mt. Carmel the winner of the meet by only one point. ()ut of the 36 teams which entered this tournament, Coach Ryder of Washington U. picked our team as the smoothest running and most consistent players on the floor. This is indeed a great tribute to E. H. S. because only the best teams from three states were present at this meet. jt THE SCRUB TOURNAMENT The Scrub Tournament of this year proved to be a much more interesting one than that of former years. The schedule was so arranged that each team played every other team two games, and the one getting the highest percentage was declared the winner. Two games were then played every night until the tournament ended on Monday. April 2. The Juniors won every one of their games except their last one when they were defeated by the Sophomores. Elmer Pfeiffer the Junior star, was not able to play in this game. The Sophomores captured second place with four victories and two defeats. 1 he Senior followed with third place and the Freshman captured the cellar position. The real sensation of the tournament was when Harvey Schwarz, star Senior forward, appeared on the floor. He proved to be the deciding factor in the Senior victories which followed. Dumbbell Blake was declared ineligible but his place on the Senior team was ably cared for by Sir Rogers Clark who proved his ability in the Sophomore game when he was expelled from the floor. The Sophomore-Freshman games proved to be interesting affairs. The Sophs won both of these by narrow margins. In the Senior-Freshman series there was an even break. The Seniors captured the first game by a large score. Jazz MacNeilly’s absence from the Senior line-up gave cause for the Freshie victory over the Seniors. The Juniors had the advantage of both conditions and practice as practically all of them were members of the High School second team and their victory was not at all surprising. Team Won Lost J uniors 5 1 Sophomores 4 2 Seniors 2 4 Freshman 1 5 75TRACK Although training for track has just begun at the time that the Tiger goes to press, Coach Hufford has some promising material on hand. E. H. S. has accepted invitations to attend meets at Granite City and McKendree and will be well represented at each. We know that if the fellows will enter into track with the same spirit that they did in Basket Ball and work with the coach that we will have a track team that Edwardsville can be proud of.

Miss Sahl: “Have any of you read Francis Bacon?” No response. Miss Stahl: “Have any of you read Ralph Waldo Emerson?” No response.

I never knew any of your father’s people.” v4 .4 ,4 TEN GOOD REASONS Why every respectable thinking man should swear just as often and as hard as he can: 1. Because it is such an elegant way of expressing one’s thoughts. 2. Because it is such a conclusive proof of one’s taste and breeding. 3. Because it is such a sure way of making one’s self agreeable. 4. Because it is positive evidence of acquaintance with good literature. 5. Because it furnishes such a good example and training for boys. 6. Eecause it is just what a mother enjoys having her son do. 7. Because it would look so nice in print. 8. Because it is such a help to manhood and virtue in many ways. 9. Because it is such a good way of increasing one’s self-respect. 10. Because it is such an infallible way of improving one’s chances in the hereafter. ,4 ,4 .4 Fred Berner: “If she refuses to marry me I shall get a revolver to blow' my brains out.” Bus Olive: “Don’t go to the expense of buying a revolver to blow out your brains; get a pinch of snuff and sneeze.” .4 „4 .4 Mr. Krumsiek: “To what parts are people immigrating now?” Clyde Fruit: “Cuba.” Maynard Motz: “So she winked at you eh?

To the more practical mind of the male no plausible reason for wearing them presents itself and he soon disgustedly gives up trying to find one. He knows only too well that the fair flapper of the twentieth century has not suddenly become so sensible that she considers for an instant the mere trifle of getting her feet wet. For if that were the case she would not leave the scantily clothed area between the galosh and knee so exposed to wind and weather. He knows, too, that she is not deceived by thinking they are beautiful because he has heard it stated that they were not. What, then, is the object. Who can tell! But here is a suggestion for the solving of the puzzle. Surely you have noted that since time immemorial a pretty girl has chosen as her bosom friend an unattractive girl; that the slender, willowy enchantress seeks as her companion the more stout sister; that a vivid brunette is usually seen with a decided blonde. The purpose? Contrast, m’dears, contrast! So, too, perhaps, with the galoshes. When one actually considers it, does not the silken expanse displayed above look much more alluring when compared with the ugly, misshapen galosh? And the wider, and uglier, and sloppier the galosh, the more shapely does the limb appear. But “0 tempora, 0 mores,” aren’t fads simply awful these days! 994 Annual Staffs turn to us for advice and Kelp in preparing dieir Annuals.

Phone 128-YVSteps in the Progress of the International Correspondence Schools The International Correspondence Schools introduced, in 1891, the I. C. S. method of teaching the trades and professions with special home-study textbooks and a system of direction and correction of students’ work. Many years of successful teaching show that this system supplies the great educational need of the world; it carries practical knowledge to the thousands who cannot leave home nor give up work to seek an education. Six months after the enrollment of the first student by the International Correspondence Schools a thousand men were studying the Mining Course by mail. Additional subjects were then added from time to time until today the Schools offer instruction in over 300 standard Courses and an indefinite number of Special and Combination Courses covering many branches of technical education and dozens of other subjects ranging from advertising and salesmanship to poultry husbandry and agriculture. The work of the 1. C. S. is threefold: Teaching employed persons the science of their trades or professions; preparing misplaced and dissatisfied people for congenial or better-paying work; giving young, unemployed persons the training necessary to enable them to start at good salaries in chosen vocations. •For further information as to the methods of teaching and prices of our course, call or write THOS.
