S., you know, is the best of all the faculties That ever reigned before. Our worthy superintendent. Whose name is Charles F. Ford. Has won our hearts completely With all his deeds and words. Our principal, Mr. Krumsiek. Keeps the records and gives the rule. His word means law and order In our Edwardsville High School. Miss Gewe, who is among us. Is noted for her smiles. To find another like her We would travel many miles. And then we have Miss Davis With her methods for keeping books. She also teaches Commercial Law. And how to write words with hooks and crooks. We have two English teachers Named Miss Clara and P.liss Ruth, Who tell the “Sophs” how to write Allegories emphasizing a truth. And then we have Miss Heffron, Who has assembly fifth. She teaches winsome lassies To make bread and cake real swift. Mrs. Powell is the lady. Who teaches the girls to sing. And when they meet on Tuesday. The halls with music ring. When it comes to teaching language. We have Miss Beulah McClure. She has mastered French and Latin, And with her help we are secure. Next comes Miss Lucille Sawyer, Who is a jewel rare, She organized the council To help the girls play fair. Up on the fourth floor of the building Mr. Curtiss holds full sway, His classes in Physics and Chemistry Will wrin him bright laurels some day. In Algebra and Geometry We have Miss Benner and Miss Flagg, And if you are in their classes, You may be sure you cannot lag. A member of our Faculty Comes from Indiana State. He is coach of our athletics. Mr. Hufford, he is great. The most up-to-date is Miss Stutzer, Who met a tonsorial artist one day. Ho looked at her sharply and she bobbed her hair shortly, And now she looks lovely, wre say. Last but not least is Miss Oliver. In History she carries us back To the dates we must all remember If we are true to “The Orange and Black.” All praise for our Faculty, ever, And honor where honor is due, And may disloyalty never Sever our friendships so true.

Instead, we have taken it upon our shoulders to give to the world various interesting facts concerning the class of ’25 and to begin we will start with their feet. This was by no means a pleasant task. One must; always remember that a size four on a girl’s foot is a two and so on in proportion. After taking the word of most of them and our own opir:ons in regard to some of them we found the Juniors on the average wear a number eight. This average was brought up considerably by such giants (as far as feet are concerned) as Lester Baird and Martha Volk. Then their weight. To have a 200-pound boy say he weighs 125 pounds is not an easy pill to swallow, nor is the word of a 70-pound girl that she weighs 125 pounds. Some of them, who absolutely refused to tell we pushed on the scale by force. Since the school scale weighs only up to 300 pounds, some of our rather hefty victims were delegated to the commission house where the horrible truth was learned. After much tearing of hair, we found that the average weight is 150 pounds while the combined weight was four and one-half tons, thanks to the presence of “Bunny” Brendle and Alma Deitz. Hair and eyes were next considered. When we were finished we did not know whether blue was green or black was yellow. Still everyone has the right to state the color of his own eyes and hair. One particular boy said that he had “tawny hair and sea-green eyes.” We took his word for it, then fainted. However, no one else was as poetical in his statement and we finally discovered that 30 of the Juniors have plain grey, blue or brown eyes; 29 have eyes of fashionable colors such as orchid, passionate purple, gypsy black, etc., and one, the aforesaid, sea-green. The color of hair ranged from a tint know as dishwatery blonde to the jet black, 26 being dishwater blondes, 14 having jet black tresses, 9 being fortunate enough to have their already “golden locks” tinted with peroxide and the one lonesome male, with “tawny” hair. We were about to start on the height when we decided that these Juniors weren’t very tall so we just guessed. Same way with their ages. Here is the result of very accurate guessing: The combined length would, if stretched out, go from here to Poag tuid their ages combined would make Methuselah feel like a 6-year-old flapper. While we were examining and trying to determine the color of their hair, we guessed the amount of brains each one had. Amounts ranging from nothing to abnormal were discovered, but we just conceded that they had enough brains to get the best class in school graduated so we quit and went home. —A SENIOR OF ’25.

The Sophomore class is a brilliant one, It’s members are lively and full of fun. They’re always willing’ to do any work, And never a task does a Sophomore shirk. Each one of us amost every day Tries to help some good friend out of dismay When we go to class our teachers smile For we try to please them all the while. In Geometry “Dot” Duckies is very good, In English Mary Sebastian is unexcelled, And when it comes to historical dates Our class with safety and surety is held. We never need be hungry, For “Fruit” is always near. And when our “Flagg” is passing by, We give a hearty cheer. We have an “Ax” for our defense, And a “Ladd” who is big and strong. A brilliant “Glass” we call Lawrence, And “Love” that will last us “Long.” We’re working hard for the E. H. S.

Will you submit much longer, To this frightful mockery? Ever since schools were invented Juniors and Seniors always intended With their bright remarks and such To ridicule and get a laugh on us. If we talk in the Assembly, As all students sometimes do, Some bright Junior always will say, “Some dumb Freshman, that the truth.” If to the Library we are rushing, You can hear some Senior say, “No, its really not a panic, All the Freshmen act that way.” What’s the matter with us Freshmen, Will we always be their foil? Just to see your calm indifference, Makes us get so mad we boil! Fellow Freshmen, are you with us? Then our cry shall ever be, “Seniors are dignified now and ever, But up with class equality.” —SOME OF US. Page FortyBook III ( Athletics Iwmm ('ouch R. C. Huff or d Success in athletics may always be traced to persistent, conscientious training and expert coaching. Our fellows had both. One depended on themselves; the other, on Mr. Hufford. In both respects the results were better than we ever expected. Mr. Hufford—our “Coach”—cannot be praised too highly or given too much credit for what he accomplished in his athletic work this year. His own fighting personality he impressed on his teams and he made them want to fight—want to win. The highest praise we can give him is to call him a “real” man. The teams realized it and because of that fact, fought for E. H. S.; we realize it and respect him. Coach Hufford—here are our congratulations! Page Forty-oneFootball The Season ’Way back somewhere, we recollect an admonition, hurled at us one day, to the effect that football, to be successful, must be talked about, breathed, thought about—and though it was not said—eaten. All said theories haveing been put into practice by many of the candidates, willingly or otherwise, Coach Hufford found a rather promising field of material from which he succeeded in creating a team. Our official season, alas and alack, opened with a paddling by Alton, 25-0. Then Hillsboro, rushing in, took the lion’s share of the score and determined it thus: 26-6. By this time our ire was up and when Gillespie arrived—Gr-r-r! Owff!—E. H. S., 31; Gillespie, 0. Since our Litchfield game was suddenly called off until a later date, we began planning a hot reception for Benld. True, it was hot; but they made it so. Benld, 52; E. H. S., 7. Litchfield, heartened by what we did to Benld, came on heedlessly, and so, logically, the score was: Litchfield, 0; E. H. S., 7. Our old rivals, Collinsville, although their team had been very much weakened by graduation (a necessary thing, nevertheless) came, confident of victory. We felt the same way. The score was: Collinsville, 6; E. H. S., 6. This confident spirit must have been contagious, for our next game with Granite City, turned out thus: Granite City, 7; E. H. S., 7 In our last game Belleville handed us, graciously, the small end of the score which happened (?) to be, Belleville, 33; E. H. S., 13. Thus ended the season; not very well, to be sure, and yet not so very bad either. We had an opportunity to win from Kirkwood, but rain deprived us of the privilege. Every team his its off years and this must have been ours. We are not down-hearted. A peppy school doesn’t feel that way. Instead, we are looking forward to ’25 as a year filled with victories. Page Forty-twoCaptain Calvin May In truth, we do not know how to begin—what to say about Kelly. Four years of service on a team is a fact to be proud of, but Kelly is not the sort to glorify himself—he does the work and the results do the rest. A keen lover of athletics, a true sportsman, good na-tured, a real '‘guy”—that’s Kelly. Ferguson Geers Whenever the other fellow hit Ferg he grinned—and then knocked the other fellow for a goal. Ferg tried anything once—and he usually succeeded. He’s another graduate. Joseph Koclianski We’ve often heard of “fightin’ fools” —well here’s one. What Joe was afraid to do, wasn’t worth doing. His motto seemed to be “the bigger they are, the harder they fall” and he certainly put it into practice. We’ll surely miss him next year. Clarence Ax A fighting, smashing, raring Sophomore, always ready to knock the other line from here to Kalamazoo. Keen, always on the alert, full of pep, the team’s youngster. We take off our hats to “Hatchet.” Pago Forty-three Elmer Pfeiffer Our one victim of “that wicked, vicious game of football.” Em broke his arm early in the season and recuperated during the rest of it. Anyway, we’ve seen Em play and we know that his red hair was not given him for nothing. Fight!—that’s his middle name. Of course we hate to say it, but he graduates. Milton l oss He never said much; he just played the game, but he played it so that the fans had enough to talk about for a week. He’ll not be back next year. John Cline John played a consistently good game from the time the season began until it ended. Practice, no matter how tiresome, always found John there and therein lies perhaps the secret of his success. We remember, with a thrill, when he picked up a fumble during our game with Hillsboro, and made a touchdown. He’s coming back next year. Harris Blixen This was Harry’s first year on the team but for a new man he certainly played the game. Always on the square —-a fellow who played with all his might. We hate to lose him but one must graduate. Robert Hallam We used to believe that the fellow who talked a great deal couldn’t do anything. We’ve changed our opinion. Bob talked football, thought football, breathed football and played like fury. If he talks from now until next season we see a long line of victories in store for us, for he’s coming back. 1j y u y y u Page Forty-four liWillard Flagg If he wanted to tackle a fellow, he did and if he didn’t, he did it anyway. Many’s a fellow he rolled in his time. We’re sorry but he’s a Senior. Carl Cerfen Our good looking end. When it came to a forward pass, Carl was there. Jumping, turning, wiggling, somehow he always managed to get the ball through. We are fortunate in having him next year. Maynard Motz Dependable at all times, Maynard certainly could be depended upon to do his share in every game. When it came to breaking up the opponent’s back-field, he was there. Remember the Granite City game? There he showed he was real stuff. Being a Junior, he’ll buck the line again next year. Ralph Kearney Our old standby. We always liked a fellow who looked like a movie star in football togs and here he is. He looks like an angel but he plays with the fire of the -----! Ask Gillespie. Might add that being Irish has something to do with his fighting spirit. The team will feel his absence keenly next year. Lawrence Glass “Practice makes perfect’’ certainly applies to football. Larry practiced consistently and so when he hit the line, the other fellow usually woke up on the side line. We’ll have him again next year. Robert Naumann We seldom played an aerial game, inasmuch as extensive passing was concerned, but when it came to Bob’s flying tackles, we played them all the time. And he seldom “flew” in vain as the other fellow usually realized. A Senior! Donnell Hofmeiei Big enough to have great things expected of him, he came up to our highest expectations in the Alton game. Full of pep, he certainly played havoc with Alton’s well-planned tactics. And every other game was a repetition of this. Sorry but graduation will take him this year. Warren Speed When the other team saw Speed they usually thought he was a brilliant subject to try their tackling on. They usually found out that instead of being “brilliant to be tackled,” he was “brilliant to tackle them.” Very sad mistake. Speed will be with us next year.” Herbert Dustman He wasn’t obliged to hold the line; he simply stood there and let the opposite team push itself out of breath. Still he knew the game and what’s more he’s coming back next year. Page Forty-six u 'Basketball 'A Fans Diary November 15. Coach calls for basketball men. I’ve just gotten over football— now basketball. Don’t know who’ll make the team but can just about guess—Kelly, Cline, Joe K, Buckley, Les, Pfeiffer, Voss and Doeblin. Wish Rastus was here—but he’s coming. November 20. (Bunker Hill—here) First game. Not a regular scheduled game but we sure showed our stuff. Did we beat em? Well, I guess. The whole team looks promising and Bunker Hill found this out. The score was only 8-21 which sure proves that our stuff was real. November 30. (Madison—here) Not as promising as it looked, Gee! those Madison boys step kinda high. Noonan pulled off some keen shots and I’ve gotta give him credit. Would sooner give it to, Cline but it just ain’t possible. The score— thanks to Noonan—was 26-7. December 7. (Woodriver—here) Looks like Woodriver rows its own boat. Well, they get the practice down there on the river. After all it wasn’t such a bad game, only some “guy” tried to tell Kelly where to head in at. He wouldn’t take it, so the “ref” prescribed a shower for both. Of course, the score—minus Kelly—was 14-7. December 14. (Belleville—here) Well! it’s Belleville’s habit to do things like that. The fellows watched Gundlach (?) as the coach asked them to; Yes! they watched him make baskets, which certainyl didn’t give us the big end of the score. It was only 25-14. December 20. (Alton—there) Away from home now. Maybe th’s will change matters a bit. Oh! Boy! the team started out fine, but shucks! Alton changed matters all right and the score, too, which was 25-12. I believe I’ll stay home. Maybe I’m a jinx! December 21. (Nashville—here) Oh! I thought I’d come over anyhow. Atta time, Edwardsville! Atta boy, Doeblin! Some more baskets, you’re leading by six points this half; come back and lead ’em by six at the end of the game too. Aw! I didn’t mean you, Nashville. You had to go and spoil the fun. No fun in leaving the score 21-15. January 5. (Granite—here) I hope our team has got New Year’s resolutions made up. Hooray! ! They sure have! That’s making Grnite walk the chalk line. Good work, Buckley and Cline! Do this a little oftener and Granite will tame down a little if they lose games by a 14-18 score. January 8. (Carlinville—here) I’ll bet this will be hot. Who’s that Hercules on Carlinville’s team? Lewis? So that’s the guy that knocked Isaacs and the bunch for a row during that football game last year. Hot! ! ? ? Well I mean “not maybe.” Hurry up with that one little precious basket. Aw, well! It was worth looking at and the bunch made Hercules sweat something awful. Lost in last minute of play by a score of 13-16. Hard pill to swallow, but I’ll sleep good tonight. January 9. (Belleville—here) Belleville still has its bad and unbreakable habits,but Senn showed the Belleville boys a few pointers on shots from back of center. The aforesaid bad and unbreakable habits caused the score to be 25-10. January 11. (Jerseyville—there) I wish I hadn’t come all the way up here. Some game—firsi half, E. H. S. 2, J. H. S. 2. Neither side scored a field basket during the first half. Then Wib Doeblin, Speed and Buckley livened things up in the third quarter and we led at the end, 9-8. And then! ! Speed weakened and Eaglehoff (?) pulled off some questionable ones. Cline was saved for the Chesterfield game and didn’t get a chance at the Jerseyville bunch and therefore the score of 19-11. January 12. (Chesterfield—here) “Owrr! Woof!-! Let me at ’em!” (Motto of the whole team due to last year’s results.) It sure was a game. Kelly showed the boys how to take the ball off the board. Guns, razors and knives were in evidence and the bones rolled—a big 7 for us. Oh, boy! Did Chesterfield look sour? They sure did but could you blame ’em? They got 13 and wc took 21.- Just like takin’ candy away from the baby. Naughty, Naughty--------------. January 18. (Carlinville—here) Carlinville seemed to enjoy our visit and they made a night cf it. It looked as if the boys got lost over there on that big floor and it took them until the third quarter to find each other. Pfeiffer found a shooting eye and Kelly found a girl. (As usual.) Incidentally I might mention the score. It was 30-1G. January 19. (Gillespie—here) Oh, oh! White meat—well of all the phenomena! Now I sure am going to quit coming to these games. Just because it was white meat was no sign to treat it too white and let them walk off with the game, as they did, 19-11. January 25. (Alton—here) Kinda got a talkin’ to from Coach for last week’s game, didn’t ya? Well, I don’t blame him and the only way you can make up with me is to win this game. Hot Dawg! Talkin’ does help. Another one of those “Red Hot” rip-snortin’ games. Had Alton by the neck, 7-1, at end of half and 12-10 at the end of game. If the team would only play like that in all the games, instead of picking on said “white meat” and getting beat, I’d be happy. The whole bunch sure did strut around those Alton lads and made ’em look sick. February 1. (Granite City—there) Wee! Wow! Hooray! Look what the wind blew in. If it ain’t old Rastus Stolte himself. Strut yo stuff, kid! Wouldia look at the kids makin’ Granite swaller it whole? Well, ole Rastus sure put the pep into ’em, as indicated by the score 15-26. February 2. Jerseyville again? Well! Well! Just outplayed and outguessed, tha’s all. Too fast of a pace for us. Here’s the score, 30-13, Amen! February 8. (Woodriver—there) The old Woodriver gang is still rowin’ its own boat. The game was all right till Slim Gieslemen went in and broke our record of one field basket. Coach said he thought it was a track meet—Nuff Sed! Score 14-8. February 9. (Benld—here) Hold 'em Bennely!—They sure have to every time they come here. What’s the idea of coach turnin’ in the second team? Well wouldja look at ’em go to it, look at “Red” Pfeiffer usin’ that eye he found, eh? Game’s half over. Now the first team? That’s a treat. Seconds beat Benld by larger score than the firsts. Ho—ho, but she sure was a rough one, score and everything. How’s this 13-28? Page Fcrty--elghtFebruary 12. (Collinsville—there) Omyomyo! that floor’s a jinx. Had ’em beat in the best game of the season up to the last fifteen seconds of play,—and then got beat. Can you beat that? ! ! Wib Stolte and Kelly sure played a game and they promised to beat ’em over here for that. Lookin’ at the score, 12-11, I sure know Kelly and Wib can keep their promise! February 15. (Madison—there) Poor sports, those Madison fans. The girls tried to drown Stolte by spittin’ on him, ar.d the boys tried to peeve the “ref”, and all this happened in a two by four. Never again! ! ! Almost forgot the score, 21-12. February 22. (Collinsville—here) Now I know I’ll see a game, Collinsville’s here again. Oh, daddy! I sure did and did ya. see the way Wib Stolte put the basketball in that ole ring just before the gun popped, to make it 14-12 in our favor? The “Royal Razzers” from Collinsville somehow or other weren’t percolatin’ just right. It was sure better than any shoot-up the Wildey ever put on. February 23. (Greenville—there) Aw! Well! the kids aren’t over last night’s game yet and at that they gave Greenville an awful scare. They were leading the Greenville quint almost the whole game and they lost—only by four points (16-20) to the runner ups in last year’s state tournament. Not so bad—got to give ’em a little credit. February 26. (Central High, St. Louis—there) Well, Central has got a good team you know, and we weren’t hitting just right, I mean on all five. The score’s a crime, almost manslaughter—42-7. February 29. (Madison—here) This was a repetition of the Collinsville fray. Madison, JUST YOU LOOK AT THIS SCORE, not so bad for us, 16-11, Page Forty-nine rt M H U M a A Word From The Quick In reviewing the past season there are apparent, a number of vital lessons. We lost a number of games through over-confidence. Failing to realize that there were five men on the opposing team, determined to win if possible. Such defeats as Nashville, Gillespie, Woodriver (1st game) Central and perhaps Madison (1st game) might be listed under this heading. On the other hand we lost a number of games to teams, no better than ours because we were beaten before we went in. We expected to be trounced and were. Lack of confidence is just as dangerous as overconfidence. Such defeats as Alton (1st game) Belleville, wood River (Tournament), Jerseyville (2nd game), Carlinville (2nd game), Madison (2nd game), Mt. Vernon (Tournament) were perhaps largely due to this feeling among the men. Also we should not lose sight of the fact that determination to win is a valuable aid to winning. We won a number of games contrary to public opinion, simply because we were determined to win. Such games as the two games with Granite, the two with Collinsville, the one with Alton here, the Benld, Chesterfield, Madison here, Jerseyville there and Staunton in the tournament, St. Elmo in the tournament were all good games because the fellows were willed to win. It might not be out of place to at last call attention to the fact that a number of fellows come into high school with the idea that their athletic ability will gain for them a passing grade and learn, to their sorrow, they have been misinformed. A man must carry his work. His presence in school is first, for school work. If that be successfully accomplished then he may, and should, contribute as much of his energy, time and ability to the good of outside activities. A basketball player cannot be developed in one year or even well in two. So many boys put off coming out for the team until they are Juniors or sometimes Seniors. The result is that they are generally just beginning to find themselves when their scholastic life is ended. An article of this nature would not be complete without calling attention to the splendid spirit of sportsmanship that prevailed on the team throughout the past year. Everywhere the team went they made friends and were highly complimented by authorities of several schools for their good conduct and excellent deportment. The coach was well pleased with the efforts of the fellows to co-operate and to subordinate self for the team. After all there are some things more vital and valuable than winning. Page Fifty u y y y u y J u ii n Wilbur Stolte This year’s captain. We couldn’t have found an abler man to fill the place. A forward he hung up more baskets than any other man on the squad. For two consecutive years he was chosen forward on the district all-star team and last year he was chosen all-star forward on the Washington U. Tournament team. Our star of stars! Calvin Mai) Another of the bunch. Kelly was a smooth performer with the ball and was a mighty hard man to get around. When he had an eye on a man, that man had a hard time getting a shot. Won’t be back. Joseph Kochanski Joe was a fit running mate for Kelly. Joe didn’t say much, but the opposing forwards always knew he was there— which, of course, means a lot. He’s a Senior. John Cline John was with us last year and came back with more pep this year. Our center—he usually got the tip-off, w’hich often meant a basket. He’ll be with us next year. Elmer Pfeiffer “Em” again! We introduced him in football and so, you know him. As a basketball man, he was fast, light and had a good eye for the basket. The real star of the Benld game, and a fellow to be watched in every other game He’s going this year. y R n n ii y Page Fifty-oneWilbur Doehlin Wib has always been a good friend of ours and when he began stepping around all the opposing forwards, we liked him even better. He was a good forward and played the game. Of course, he has to be a Senior. Donald Buckley Buck has always been a basketball man. From the time he was in the grades he has been an ardent follower of this game. Hence it is no wonder that he has two letters in this sport. A forward, he was fast and could be depended upon to keep the ball in our territory. A Senior! Nelson Senn A little man but full of fight. Senn didn’t care if the guy was twice his size, when he saw the ball he got it. As luck will have it he is coming back next year. Ralph Kearney We’ll dispense with an introduction. You’ve met him before. Being an Irishman we needn’t tell you he had pep, for he showed it always; but especially in the Madison game. Going, too. Milton Voss This is Milt’s first year in athletics and we must say he made a successful year of it. To win two letters in one year is a job for a seasoned man. Milt was a forward and proved very apt. The only sad part of this tale is the fact that he’s a Senior and won’t be back. Page Fifty-two The 'District Tournament The district tournament was held March 12, 13, 14 at Granite City in the new gymnasium, which is a credit to Granite City and the Community High School. The gymnasium floor is the auditorium stage and this is satisfying to the observer for from the auditorium or balcony he can see every movement and play that is made. Edwardsville drew Staunton for the first game. This caused quite a commotion as Edwardsville had no idea of Staunton’s style of play, not having played them for some years. Authentic reports that Staunton had a basketball team as good as its football team caused some uneasiness among the fans, but our boys seeing a big opportunity before them stepped right in and came out after a hard battle on the heavy end, 29-13. Wib Stolte still showed that he was a tournament battier, ringing twelve of the twenty-nine The same evening we tied up with Woodriver and it was anybody’s game until the whistle blew. Stolte again led the scoring with twelve out of fourteen points, but this was not enough to win the game, which went to Woodriver by a 14-18 score. True that we did not show up as well as we did last year, but we did our best under the circumstances and no one grumbled. When the all-star team was announced during the final game of the tournament, Wilbur Stolte headed the list and Calvin May received honorable mention. This is the second consecutive year that Stolte was placed on this team—a high honor to the school. This year we again accepted an invitation to the third annual Washington U. Tournament, in which forty-eight teams participated. Most of the teams were the best from surrounding states and we again hoped to do as well as we did last year and to receive the same recognition. Our first game was with St. Elmo, Illinois, and a good one it was. for we won by a 29-17 score. Our second was with Mt. Vernon and here we dropped off as we did in the district tournament. Mt. Vernon got away from us by a 33-17 score and also won from all the other teams, except in the final game. points. % % The Washington U. Tournament Page Fifty-three School Spirit Along with Athletics, one naturally speaks of school spirit. Whether one should say that winning teams are the result of school spirit or school spirit the result of winning teams seems to be a bit undecided. But in truth, it really doesn’t matter since E. H. S. has both. In the past basketball season, the spirit of E. H. S. was exhibited to the highest degree. When we w'ere winning, remember how w e yelled—how the fellows fought— how the score ran up for us. And even when we were losing, did we lose our pep? No! Fight 'em! Fight 'em! Can we ever forget it? In all our school activities, this same school spirit has carried us through. It has promoted a just pride in our building and grounds, a desire to progress, to do better and it certainly has raised the standard of our school work. We vc got it—let's keep it, and we'll have better students, better teams and— eventually better citizens.

Stokes - Irma Stolze - Alma Barnett The Hiking Club, about fifty strong, under the direction of Miss McClure, hiked every Thursday evening when the weather permitted. These hikes were of varying length. Several outdoor entertainments also were enjoyed by the girls. The Club was divided and one group entertained with a hare and hound chase, and the other group in turn entertained with a candy pull. As an added incentive an award was given to all members who took every hike.1 a Dramatic Club President...................Wilbur Stolte Vice-President................Alina Deitz Secretary-Treasurer - Mary E. Stokes General Manager .... Evelyn Smith The Dramatic Club, an entirely new and much needed organization in the High School, was organized this year under the direction of Mr. Hufford. The object this year was merely to get the club started. One three-act play, “The Hand That Won," and three one-act plays were given. The Club also assisted in producing a minstrel for the benefit of the Athletic Association. The members this year were picked at random from the entire High School, usually because they were certain “types.” Some, however, were chosen because of their previously proved dramatic ability. The plan is to keep the membership at about thirty members, those graduating being replaced by an equal number of new members. However, the candidates for membership must pass a test proving that they have dramatic ability before they are admitted to the club. Mr. Hufford intends, next year, to put on a one-act play every month and one big play every three months, thus using each member of the club several times a year. We feel that under his able leadership the Dramatic Club will enjoy a successful and profitable year. It can scarcely do otherwise. girls' glee Club n Girl Scouts Page Fifty-seven Guardians: Miss Flagg, Miss Benner, Miss Sawyer.

This has come about naturally, due to changes in the social and industrial life of the nation. Many of the tasks formerly incident to the home training of boys and girls have necessarily been transferred to the school The obligation must be met. If, then, the school is to function well in producing useful citizens for the nation, it must understand the problems of the youth who are the citizens of the school organization. To further such an understanding of girls’ problems many schools have made special pro- LUCILLE SAWYER, Dean of Girls. vision by appointing a faculty woman whose duty is to appreciate the value of the individual girl as a member of the group. One author says, “A new vision of the school’s obligation to the community has broadened our field and increased our task, until nothing that affects the life of the girl or boy is extraneous to the interest of the school and its officials.” In this, the first year of service of a Dean of Girls in E. H. S., special attention has been given to scholarship, development of a spirit of group unity, and to an elimination of unnecessary absence from classes. Co-operation on the part of everyone concerned has been a big factor in the results of the year’s work, and upon that quality depends the future success of the plan. Page Fifty-nine . I The CjirT s An entirely new method for the governing of the girls was organized this year under the direction of Miss Sawyer, Dean of Girls. Three girls from each class were elected to a “Girls’ Council.’’ The Council meets every month to discuss matters, to suggest aids for the welfare of the High School girls and to recommend changes for the good of the school. This plan immediately met with the approval of the High School girls. The idea of self-government brought about co-operation among the girls of all classes and did away with that class distinction that is prevalent in almost every high school. One of the means of bringing about co-operation and promoting a spirit of friendliness and helpfulness was the “Girls’ Party.” This party was a great success and the Girls’ Council certainly deserves the high place it has among our high school organizations. May is have a prosperous future! Page Sixty ■The Science Qlub Willard Flagg...................President Robert Wayne - - - - Vice-President Wilma Schwartz - - Secretary-Treasurer The Science Club, though late in starting this year, has greatly increased in membership. Under the able direction of Mr. Curtiss, the club has equaled, if not surpassed, its record of last year. Several interesting speakers from neighboring towns have addressed the club at its various meetings. Also government pictures, illustrating scientific processes, have been shown. , Much enthusiasm and interest has been maintained among the members. May the club enjoy a profitable and interesting future. Page Sixty-one The Hallotoe'en TTCasque “Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these.’9 This can be safely said about the High School Students at the Hallowe’en Masque. Yea. we sincerely doubt that Solomon with all his wisdom could ever have conceived the ideas for the clever, funny, pretty, queer and mysterious costumes with which our fellow-students arrayed themselves on this prank-producing eve. The prizes were awarded with great judgment. For the prettiest costumes, Fred J. Berner and Dorothy Fink received prizes. Fred as a clown and Dorothy as a dainty shepherdess deserved them! Then Jessie Burger, a rude tramp; Virginia Heinrich, as “Pan-Handle Pete;” Miss Heffron, as a lady clown; Virginia Burroughs, a kind negro “Mammy;” Edward Cable, as a “Rowdy” (we guess), and Mildred Macha, as a funny old lady, all received prizes. After awarding the prizes, the different organizations of the High School entertained us. We can not truthfully say which was the best, but we do know that a certain Senior girl must have been a cute little baby. , The program consisted of a play by the Science Club, music by the Girls’ Quartette, and “stunts” by the Hiking Club and Tennis Club. Following the “stunt show” we all unanimously adjourned to the Gym, where “eats” and dancing were enjoyed. We stayed until 10 o’clock (that is until the lights were turned off.) Thus ended the best masquerade we have had so far. Ta rent— Pupil— Teacher— Party Each year the pupils and instructors are “at home” to the parents at an informal entertainment, given in the High School Auditorium. This year the following program was rendered: Education News Reel.... Reading—“Who’s Afraid Talk................... Cornet Solo............ Why Pupils Fail........ Songs High School...... ...Radio Concert ...Ferva Wedel .......Mr. Ford .Lawrence Glass ...Mr. Krumsiek Led by Mr. Ford This was followed by a social hour, during which the parents and pupils visited with the teachers. This has always proven an enjoyable affair and we hope it will become a regular event in the program of the school year. h ii U Ii ii yzAll-CjirVs :'Party The first party planned for all the girls in school was given in the gymnasium on February the fifteenth. The party took the form of a Valentine party, and the idea was carried out in the games and refreshments. About one hundred girls enjoyed the evening and this successful event has done much to promote social intercourse and friendship among the girls of the various classes. The feature of the evening was a basketball game—is that the correct word? between the two strong rival teams known as the “Spark Plugs’' and “Sassie Susies.” The latter team won by a large score and we congratulate them on the agility with which they climbed the ladder and tossed the ball into the basket. They showed superior training—in climbing! Then the girls divided into groups and began a series of games—“Streets and Alleys,’’ “Costume Relay Race” and “Paper Blowers.” All these games were greatly facilitated by organized cheering, led by Cleo Kinder, Esther Barnett, Irma Stolze and Evelyn Smith. Each guest was presented with a valentine as a souvenir of the occasion. Dainty refreshments, consisting of ice cream molded in the shape of hearts, and heart-shaped cookies, were served. Dancing was the last feature of the evening, and all the girls left declaring that this had been a most successful party. The Girls Council, d new organization in our school, deserves much credit for the management of this party. At the time The Tiger goes to press, both the Junior and Senior classes are beginning to seriously consider the question of class plays, an ever important event in the school year. The Juniors have decided on presenting “Sylvia,” an operetta. The cast of characters will include Virginia Anderson, Evelyn Smith, Carl Gerfen, Junior Tuxhorn, Earl Kriege and Edward Gable, besides the many students who will compose the choruses. The Senior play has not been chosen, so nothing definite can be said except that, in an advisory way, they had better watch their step or the Juniors will surpass them. The dates for the above plays will be May 1 and 15, respectively. Pago Sixty-three m mmmmmrn ft TIGER JOKES 24 BUSINESS MQR.

Hueter Mary Elizabeth Bell Carl Gerfen Virginia Burroughs Eleanor Geers Justin Brady Editorial “A friend in need, is a friend indeed,” is a very old saying, but it is as true today as the day it was first uttered. Everywhere we find friends who are for us when we have nothing for them to do, who fail to know us when we might put them to work. Nevertheless, even though we do admit the truth of the above lines, we as a staff do it doubtfully. For throughout our work we have found everyone whom we asked only too willing to help us. The faculty and student body came to our aid with snapshots, jokes, stories and incidents for the calendar. They hardly had to be asked. True school spirit indeed; we offer them our sincerest thanks. But this cheerfulness and willingness to help was not only manifested in our school, it was just as clearly shown throughout our town. Mr. and Mrs. Strebler were never too busy to help us. Whether it was a matter of strictly photographic work or just some grouping that troubled us, they were always ready to give us freely of their time, and we certainly appreciate their help. And next, our advertisers. When we asked them for ads they gave them to us willingly, with best wishes for a successful year-book. Perhaps they do not realize it. but their good will was perhaps even more welcome than their financial aid. although we must state both were necessary. Then there are all those friends who asked us about our book, who encouraged us. wished us good luck. When we think of these people, we realize more fully the truth of the words: “It is the little things in life that count.” May we extend our sincere thanks to the townspeople of Edwardsville? You have all helped and we want you to know we have appreciated it. Page Sixty-fiveCCtr »v 'Board of Thomas Williamson, President B. H. Richards, Jr. E. D. Bell Ed. McLean E. A. Boll man C. A.

Unity is maintained through unity of thought and ideas; not through dissension and knocking. A mule cannot pull and kick at the same time; neither can you.

You know how passionately fond I am of flowers!” Parson: “Do you know where little boys go when they smoke?” Ansel Shupack: “Yes, up the alley!” They sat like this.....far apart, But when his love grew warmer And they learned the joy of a kiss, They knocked out all of the spaces, Andsatupcloselikethis. On a rainy day:— Bobbed hair everywhere, But not a one in curl! Mary Stokes (addressing Senior Meet) : “I am sure we will all be very sorry our President is not here tonight.

John took a bite and Sue took a chew, And then the trouble began to brew, The trouble the doctor could not subdue; Under the turf where the daisies grew. They planted John and Sister Sue, And then little souls to the angels flew; Boo hoo! !
