The clamour and the tears,
That follow one another in the Sequence of the years;
A timid little memory,
Of things that used to be Should flutter to your threshold;

To keep a record of events during one’s school year is a hard task. But in this book we have endeavored to truthfully record events so that in later years you may look back to this book and revive fond memories.

To the members of the Board of Education who have worked so faithfully that we, and also those who are to follow us, may have a better place of learning, and therefore give us greater opportunities, we the Class of ’25 respectfully dedicate this Volume of the Tiger.
Page SixPage SevenOur New High School
We, the Class of 1925, feel that we express the true sentiment of the other classes in the high school as well as that of the citizens of Edwardsville when we express our sincere gratitude for our new home. We realize that its planning and completion has cost a great deal of sacrifice both in time and energy. We congratulate the Board of Education, the Architect, Contractors as well as the citizens upon their finished product.
The school as it now stands is not complete. There is in the minds of the Board of Education a plan for a new gymnasium to form a left wing for it. It will probably be built within a year or two depending upon finances. When built no doubt it will be in accord with the thoroughness now manifest in the main building.
The main building as it now stands is composed of a manual training, cooking, and sewing departments on the ground floor with further special rooms for free hand and mechanical drawing. There are also three additional class rooms on this floor, a shower room locker and toilet rooms for boys and for girls. The latter prevails on each floor.
The first floor has the following: two large study halls seating seventy-five students each, the superintendent’s, general, and principal’s offices, the bookkeeping and typewriting rooms, library, a rest room for women and one for the men and several class rooms.
The second floor has the laboratories for Chemistry, Biology and Physics, a room for the Dean of girls and class rooms.
The corridors are spacious, well lighted, the stairs fire proof and adequate.
There is a vacuum cleaning system installed, ample provision for fire, well lighted rooms and has three entrances in front and two in the rear.
The heating plant is separate from the main building. The athletic field at the rear is high, ample and well drained.
The tract of land is composed of about thirteen acres and will permit a beautiful job of land scaping.

An editor is like a country town philosopher, for he knows a great deal, but just a little of it is original. He works up the ideas but somebody else carries them out. Although this is not always the case. So if you see anything on these pages that you have seen before just pass it up and hope that the next will be better.
This book would not have been possible if it had not been for the hearty co-operation among the individuals interested in its welfare. So the staff wants to thank every one who has helped to make this a better and larger book.
Page ElevenOne of the biggest jobs in publishing an annual is the typing of the copy which is to go to the printer. So the staff wants to thank Dorothy Cunningham for the wonderful assistance she gave us in doing this work.
Unless you do a little thinking and planning to-night you are not going to be any better man tomorrow than you were today.
Time spent in looking for faults in others could best be used in correcting our own.
To publish a year book takes a great deal of money. To get this money, or part of it, advertising has always been sold. Last year the Chamber of Commerce was organized and it became evident that if we did not get the co-operation of this organization we would be up against a hard proposition. But luckily we have a very good Chamber of Commerce, for they heartily agreed to co-operate and help us as much as possible. Therefore the Senior Class of ’25 wishes to thank the Edwardsville Chamber of Commerce for their support in the publication of this book.
The world will little note nor long remember what we did here; but let every member of the Class of ’25 carry into his life the lessons he has learned during his four years of High School life.
Miss Clara Martin, head of the English Department, and her able corps of librarians did some very good work in keeping the library up to its high point of efficiency. They deserve to be praised for their successful efforts
to render the best service possible to the students of E. H. S.

Their morals ought to be excellent for their knowledge and wit are absolutely minus quantities. About 25% of the boys possess all the characteristics of ideal Congressmen. When asked to recite they can discourse for a half-period on nothing, and that is what they usually tell the teacher— nothing. If truth is stranger than fiction they tell it invariably. The other 75% are superlatively reticent.
The Seniors of the magnetic sex are the very personifications of wisdom (?) as usual. Although the “visions” have used 8.97 compacts of rice powder and 39 lip-sticks on their physiognomies they are still irresistible.
This class is simply replete with notables. Among the many artists in repartee and badinage are Baird, Berner, and Gable—rather ludicrous figures in themselves. Among the eminent nickel novelists are W. Gicse and R. Bucli. Wilmar’s latest work is entitled “Vaguero—The Snow Shoe Sheik.” Buch, who will be remembered as the author of the work on etiquette, “49 Jiujitsu Holds to Clamp on Your Macaroni and Spaghetti While Eating the Same,” will scon publish his latest radio treatise “Why the Static is PJcstatic.” Besides Bart Hellrung, our social lion, there are many other illustrious personages in the class but they and the rest of the world are blissfully unconscious of the fact.

Payv Thirty SevenThe Class of ’26
As Freshmen and Sophomores we took an active interest in school athletics and organizations. This year, as Juniors, with Mr. Henze as sponsor, we have kept up the good work with vigor.
We had a party this year, at which the faculty were our guests. It proved to be lots of fun, and how shall I say it? “A good time was had by all.” We quite remarkable Juniors had an orchestra from our own class for the party. The punch was simply the most scrumptious we ever tasted. We played several amusing games, including a balloon race. And. not least, though last, we danced.
Fellows from our class are among the most reliable on both football and basketball teams. In football, they certainly can smash that line, and they sure can ring up baskets and do nifty passing in basketball. We Juniors hate to brag, but—!!
Our play hasn’t been given yet, but we fully expect it to be a howling success.
Most ot us survived, midyear exams. Of course, there were some hunkers, but even Napoleon, himself, met his Waterloo, you know. We are going to try to graduate with flying colors, every one of us next year. Judging by our past records, I think we’ll succeed! How about it Juniors? C’mon, gang, let’s go!

Listen, classes, and you shall hear,
Of the mighty Sophs, the best this year:
In nineteen hundred twenty-three.
As the leaves began to fall,
Our class came into E. H. S.
As Freshies—yes, that’s all.
But we were not the timid things Expected by the rest;
Mere little Freshmen though we were,
Our class was of the best.
Then soon our fame began to grow,
Our brilliance is the answer;
We Freshies surely made things hum,
Miss Davis as our sponsor.
This fall, we who’d survived the tests.
Returned as Sophomores, t
To do our best for E. H. S.
While we’re within its doors.
Someday we’ll be the Senior Class,
Of nineteen twenty-seven.
Oh! talk about a dream come true—
Why, it’ll just be heaven!

“Fools Rush In Where Angels Fear To Tread.”—
Well! Well! Here they come! Such perspicacious persons! The 8th Wonder of the World! How did they ever find their way up the stairs! (They themselves were vociferously in favor of escalators.)
Fact is, they don’t look capable. But ouch, how deceptive were the facial appearances. It appears that they have come from all walks of life or rather from all brands of cars (esp. that well known oscillator, viz. Ford.)
After adroitly converting all our jejune(possibly) jokes directed against them and as comments on their idiosyncracies (?) (term probably not included in Freshman’s vocabulary) into first class fiascoes, they give us Seniors such epithet or as they pronounce it—“epitaphs” as: ignorant,
lethargic, notorious no bodies. Those Freshies are becoming exceedingly sarcastic and can surely give some acrimonious replies.
Yes! but “Intellectuals”, you ought to glance upon those furious Freshman “femmes”. One Senior boy (Anon.—himself.) after vain attempt at osculation reports that they can make some caustic remarks. Hallam, an authority, says they use pyrometers for fever thermometers.
During the semester tests the elite of the students exhibited symptoms of a pecular malady popularly known as “flunking”. When the Seniors asked them to explain the reason for the affliction they dismissed it as an eccentricity peculiar to geniuses. If this statement be so, we are acquainted with a couple of future Edisons and Marconis disguised as Seniors.
The Freshmen this year seem to be quite little, but I guess several of them will be men before they graduate. Habit is a queer thing. Why, one Freshman boy still thought he was in the grades and started to pass the waste paper basket in the assembly. Y’ou can never tell what these youngsters will do next.

I. Kirkwood. The Edwardsville High School football team opened their season with the strong Kirkwood eleven. This game was one of the bright spots of the season and it showed what could be expected of the team this year. We played them to a standstill until a few minutes before the whistle blew, when a back fumbled the ball. Result 6-0; Kirkwood’s game.
II. Hillsboro. This was a decidedly different contest. In spite of the fact that the team fought hard throughout the game, they were unable to cope with the fast and hard-hitting Hillsboro team. Score 32 0.
III. Jerseyville. To the renowned circle of football artists was added the Jerseyville team. This being their first year of football they were inexperienced. The result was 27 0, our favor, our first victory.
IV. Alton. Alton came over as before with a strong team. This was our first Conference game so both teams were anxious to win. We did not seem to be anxious enough so we lost 32-6.
V. To all but the Litchfield clan, this was a good game. They received us with the expectation of winning. But as we would not let them do this we practically had to win. Score 20-0.
VI. Our next Conference game was with the strong Belleville team. Our team showed its true merit by winning 22-6. Belleville also played a very good game.
Page Pi flitVII. Granite City. Armistice Day found Granite invading our historic battle ground. Granite was confident they were going to wipe us off of the earth. But in rain and shine, mostly rain, our team gave Granite a good beating 7-0.
VIII. Collinsville. The following Saturday we played our old rivals in our last Conference game, and it was some game. We made the first touchdown but not the last so it was 21 7 in Collinsville’s favor.
IX. Troy. Wednesday following the hard Collinsville game, brought us in contact with the Troy aggregation. They were confident of winning, but unfortunately so were we, so the score was 28-0 in our favor.
P. S. The scrubs helped this time by scoring a touchdown.
At the beginning of the 1924 Football Season 32 recruits reported for practice, eight of whom had made their letter the previous season. The weather was warm but the men rounded quickly into shape and gave a good account of themselves in the opening game with Kirkwood. In the game which followed some real strength was tested and we fell before our more experienced rival, Hillsboro. Jerseyville playing their first season of football. was easily defeated. Alton the conference champions took our measure in the fourth game. In the three contests which followed, Litchfield, Belleville and Granite took the count before the much improved Orange and Black squad. In the last conference game of the season, the team, very much crippled, went into the game determined to win but taking an early lead it was relinquished to Collinsville. The record shows at the end of the season five victories and four defeats. Though we did not win every game, the season was successful because each man gave all that he had. and showed the proper spirit. This is the thing most appreciated by the coach. Next year seven letter men will return and we are looking forward to a successful
season.CAPTAIN AX Fullback

Jersey ville jjore
After we had one week’s practice Jerseyvillo presented themselves here. They led at third quarter but we beat them 15-11, in the best game this season???
Our first Conference game. Alton hung us on the hook and forgot to give us a chance. At the end of the half they led at 15 0 but with Uuckley’s help we made it a little more interesting, ending 22 9.
Granite City There
We traveled to Granite next for our second Conference game and romped home with a 14-11 victory.
The end of the holidays brought us in contact with the fast, unbeaten Madison warriors. They certainly showed us a few things, in their 21-7 victory.
Trailing by a large margin in the first half, we brought the score to within striking distance in the second but fell short by five points 16-11.
Losing two straight tilts we were anxious to annex this. The blue and white quintet took a decided lead, and our best was a final spurt, but we dropped our third straight 16-9.
Wood river There
Too bad, we had to drop another. The team certainly put up a scrap, and nas leading at half and tied the remainder until Woodriver dropped in a sinker. 12-11.
The team invaded the city of our football dreams, and handed Carlinville a beautiful trouncing of 31 21, after the hard game with Woodriver the night previous.
We were on edge to give Collinsville a grand surprise, hut accidents will happen, so they handed us a surprise. Orange and Black 6. Collinsville
Our first return game, but that made no difference in the tunc. Alton 24. E. H. S. 9. Perhaps the 0° C of the gym was the cause of this. At any rate we dropped our fourth straight Conference tussle.
Granite City Here
Granite, now on the end of the percentage column, attempted an annexation of one from us, but our proteges displayed some fast team work and won the game. 25-10.
The surprise finally came. It worked very effectually on the St. Clairites. They led at half time 9-4, we led 14-9 at the end. after putting in some flashy touches.
Thrills galore. Plodding along with the score 8-4 against us, the team put up a whirlwind finish. We made it necessary for the use of five more minutes and finally took it 15-14.
This Friday found us matched with Woodriver again. The game proved to be a rough and tumble affair, devoid of anything spectacular. We grabbed this one 15-10.Collinsville
The next to tackle was Collinsville. We played at even terms until the third quarter, then they ripped through our defense and won handily 23-10.
Carlinville h ere
Carlinville brought their contingent here the next evening, but they received the short end of the bargain after a hard tussle. 16-11.
This game showed the true fighting spirit of our team. In the hole until the end of the fourth quarter, we pulled it out of the fire after five more minutes overtime 21-20.
The last of our schedule games was a grand finale for the season, when we triumphed over our northern rivals 16-9. An appropriate end of a successful season.
TOURNAMENT AT BELLEVILLE.
On the draw we got a team that was looked upon as a sure winner of the tournament. To be more specific they did take second place. Although our fellows played a hard game they were no match for the Collinsville quintet.
TOURNAMENT AT WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.
Our team went over to the tournament at Washington University with the hope of doing better there than they did at the one at Belleville. But it seemed a6 if Centralia had a better team than we, so they won the game 28-8.
Page Fifty-LightJOHN CLINE Captain
To play on the first team for three years ought to make a good man, and Cline certainly played a clean, hard game. A Senior.
MILTON BUCKLEY Right Forward
Our star of the season. This was his first year out and he readily made the team. Many a game was pulled out of the rut. only by his work. Will be a Junior next year.
ALBERT YOUNG, Captain-Elect Left Forward
A Freshie, who made an excellent sparring partner for Bull. Although a crack shot under the loop, he confined his work to feeding the others.
Pu0c Fifty-XincCLYDE BOTHMAN Lcft Guard
To break up the opponent’s team work is a vital part in basketball. In this respect Clyde was on the job always taking the ball and getting it down with a snap. Another Sophomore.
CLEM BOTHMAN Right Guard
Clyde and Clem made a pair of guards, who could work in harmony. There was no letting down with Clem. If the score made you downcast, he fought so much the harder.
The other letter man from last year’s squad. He was placed at guard and administered that place very effectively. A dead shot on long ones. A Junior.
Payc SixtyLEO OCHS Left Forward
Ochs made a pleasing impression on those who saw his smooth action and accurate shooting. Unable to play for a time he made up lost time at the end. A Junior. •
Ax tried his hand at basketball this year and made the team. Although not being able to play in most of the games, he left a mark on many a memory. A Junior.
Taking another crack at it, Les finally made the team, going at a strong clip all season. If there was a hard tussle, it wasn’t he who let down. A Senior.
Page Sixty-OneT rack
As a rule we have never had much of a track team. But this year the Coach is trying to build up a good team, for next year we will have a track and field at our new School. We hope that this will turn out to be successful.
This year we have a few good tennis prospects. We expect to send a team to the McKendree meet in May, also to other meets if any are held at the nearby schools. May we have a successful year in tennis!
After a lapse of several years we again take up baseball. As the Tiger will go to press before the season starts it is hard to tell what we may do. As there are many out trying to make the team the Coach has a good chance to pick good material. Although we may not have a very good season this year we can build up a good team for next year. Here’s to a successful year!
Who said the Seniors couldn’t play basketball! They won the tournament with some to spare. This is the first time the Seniors have taken the honors for a long time for the Freshies generally ran off with them. But they were fooled this year. A lot of other people were also stung but what is the difference as long as we know the Seniors can do something else besides studying?????

The Athletic Hoard is a new organization. It consists of a member from each class, elected by the class, and two appointed from the faculty by the principal, the latter is an ex-officio member. The duties of the Board are largely advisory in nature but they help to decide the athletic policy of the school. It passes on such things as awarding of letters, kinds and sizes, as well as the program for athletic activities. It is largely responsible for geniune good sportsmanship in all branches of athletics because it is representative.
Page Sixty-NineHallowe’en Party.
This was given a little late for the City entertained on Hallowe’en. The gym was crowded and a great variety of costumes were displayed. Miss Benner played the part of an owl very well. Prizes were given away and the judges had a difficult task in picking out the prize winners for there were many pretty and ridiculous costumes.
Games were played, after that everybody danced for we had a good orchestra. Excellent refreshments were served and everybody had a very pleasant time.
Under the auspices of the ‘‘Girls’ Council”, all the girls in school enjoyed a party in the gymnasium on Tuesday, March 17. Before the evening of the affair the girls were divided into groups according to their birthdays, and each group was placed in the charge of an instructor. These various groups planned a stunt for the entertainment of the evening, and many of the stunts were very clever and afforded much merriment. In the space of a few hours the girls witnessed a football game, a basketball game, a track meet between Yale and Harvard, a circus, a wedding, a patriotic parade, an historical pageant, and a school program at which Santa Claus appeared.
Between the stunts special numbers were contributed by the girls. Among these were vocal and instrumental solos, solo dances, a reading, and a violin duet.
Dainty refreshments carrying out the idea of St. Patrick’s Day were served, consisting of brick ice-cream molded with a shamrock in the center, cookies, and lime suckers. ,
The Chamber of Commerce got together and gave the Football men a real banquet. Interesting talks were given, chiefly by “Big Bill” Edmunds of Washington University. The men received their letters and were very proud of them. Everybody had an enjoyable time and we hope it will be made an annual affair.
Page SeventySenior-Faculty Party.
A real hit. The first real social event of the year. The faculty was immensely pleased and all said they had a good time. Who said the Seniors couldn’t entertain!
The members of the High School Faculty were hosts to the students and their parents in October. This annual “Open House” is in the interest of better understanding and cooperation between parents, pupils, and teachers. The following program was given:
High School Songs.
Piano solo—Martha Volk.
Play—“How a Woman Keeps a Secret.” Director—Miss McClure.
After the program the guests were privileged to meet the teachers in their various classrooms. The party this year repeated the success of similar functions in preceding years, and, received the support of the school patrons and friends in the community.
Junior Class Party.
This year the Juniors broke into the limelight by giving a great big party. As the Juniors are a loyal group the party was well attended, although there were not quite enough boys to go round. As they always have good refreshments the boys were satisfied.
The Juniors are presenting this year as their annual play “.Seventeen”, by Booth Tarkington. They have a very good group to pick from and from all indications it will be a huge success. Under the leadership of Mr. Henze and with such a good cast as they have picked the play can be nothing but a great success.
This year the Seniors will give a three act comedy entitled. “Come Out of the Kitchen.” In looking over the talent in the Senior Class it seems as if the play is going to be a great success. As the Tiger will go to press before the Junior and Senior plays are given it is difficult to tell just which will be the best.
The FYeshies are going to give a play entitled “Getting Rid of Father”. As the Tiger goes to press before the play is to be given it is difficult to tell how the play will turn out. With Miss Logan as director and a good group to pick from for the cast, it ought to be real good.
The main attraction put on by the boys this year was a minstrel for the benefit of the Athletic Association. To say that it was only a success does not do it justice. With Mr. Henze as director, the boys showed their ability to act. This achievement should have been followed by more, but because of the other activities it was impossible to put anything over.

After several hours on the Sunset limited he arrived in St. Louis.
He was walking about, and it, being after dark, he lost his way. He did not know where he was until he suddenly discovered that he was up to his kneCs in water.
He had discovered the Mississippi. Shouting “Eureka. Eureka,” he rushed to the nearest telegraph station and telegraphed the world that he had discovered the Mississippi.

Page ’Ninety-TwoAny girl can he gay in a nice coupe,
In a taxi they all can ho jolly.

Is the girl who can smile,
When you’re taking her home on a trolley.

Joe Ladd: “Say, doesn’t Evelyn Smith talk a great deal?”
M. Overbeck: “Yes, I think she must have been vaccinated with a phonograph needle.”
“Is this a speedometer?”, she asked, as she tapped on the glass which covered that instrument.
“Yes, dear”, I replied in a sweet, gentle voice.
“Don’t they call this the dash light?”, she queried, fingering the little nickel plated illuminator.
“Yes, honey”, my words floated out softly as before.
“And is this the cut-out?”, she inquired.
“Yes, Toodles”, as I took my foot off the accelerator. Not more than 200 feet away our course was blocked by a fast moving train.
‘“But what on earth is this funny looking pedal?”, she said in a curious tone, as she gave the accelerator a vigorous push with her dainty foot.
“This, sweetheart, is heaven”, I said in a soft, celestial voice, as I picked up a gold harp and flew away.
Two sweethearts from Edwardsville were rambling around, when they came to a movie. The young man ran his eye over the front of the building. It rested on a title in large letters—“The Woman Pays.”

Miss Sawyer: “How can you tell the approach of winter.”
Hazel Bollman: “It begins to get later earlier.”

Aunt Mandy kept her house spotless. Consequently, poor Sambo was constantly being nagged about his untide habits.
One day Sambo came home to find that Mandy had presented him twins. He viewed this as something of a calamity and said, rather mournfully, “Mandy, l’se done cautioned you time an’ again to let dat ole Gold Dust stuff alone—now. ah reckons you’ll listen to me some heahaftah.”
Just before he returned from W. M. Academy Hap Dressel strolled into the Asylum for the mentally deranged, both slightly and more so at Alton. He was much amused at seeing a man sitting there dangling at the end of a string on a stick, over a flower bed. Wishing to be affable he asked, “How many have you caught.”
“You’re the ninth,” was the reply.
Miss McClure: “Who were the three wise men?”
Iola Henry: “Stop, look, and listen.”

“What do you think of Dorothy?”
“Why she’s a very nice girl.”
“No, but cat to cat what do you think of her?”
Joe Ladd: (Watching Teddy rolling a field) “Wonder what lie’s rolling
that field for.”
Spindle Fruit: “Mebbe he’s going to raise rolled oats.”

Tis not the lot of man To fashion perfect things;
We do but what we can.
Begone, ye carping critics!
Know ye, we hear enow From grumbling trouble-makers; Then keep thy silence, thou!
But welcome, kindly readers!
The understanding heart Doth lighten many burdens And ward off many a dart,
For we may do our utmost,—
The critic still doth sing;
But kindly voice and friendly eye May soothe full many a sting.
