We are proud of our lads and our lasses, Of honors won in days gone by, So here's a cheer for our Old High School, For our Old High School, our dear Old High. CHORUS: Here's to our classes, here's to our lasses, Here's to the lads they adore, Here's to the Seniors so mighty, the Juniors so tlighty, Freshies and Sophomore. Let mirth and gladness banish all sadness, And as the days go by, You'll find us willing and ready, and firm and steady, Boosting for our Old High. Soon for us will the school days be ended, The dreams of youth that fade so fast: But we know that our hearts oft will ponder, In memory o'er scenes that are past. These are joys that will long be remembered, And friendships, too, that never can die, So here's a cheer for our Old High School, For our Old High School, our dear Old High. 1926-'H ---- -- fm----M--M ---------- ---.- T1 GER--.--U -------- u-.---.-M. I Foreword One sweetly solemn thought Comes to me o'er and o'erg I'm nearer a full-fledged grnd today Than ever 1've been before. The paraphrase expresses the joy and re- gret of the Class of '26, the joy attending the consummation of years of effort, and regret of certain termination of school day associations. In passing, however, we wish to leave the issue of the Tiger of '26 as a footprint. May it never be filled by the sands ot time.

Printed booklets stating the process by which it was built, together with the cost of various contracts and a directory for the building, were handed each who entered, with a welcome to view every part of our new home. Lighted throughout, the building was a very pretty sight to behold and pleased most people beyond expectation. Many were the compliments received by over four thousand who attended. Each teacher stayed in her room or department, ready to meet patrons and explain her phase of school work. The building consists of three floors, has three well lighted and ample corridors, two study halls conveniently located, and twenty-five class and special rooms. The administration offices are well located near the main entrance. Men and women teachers each have separate rest rooms provided with individual lockers. Students have locker rooms inbwhich each has his own locker with key. The special rooms are Sewing, Cooking, Manual Train- ing, Library, Biology, Chemistry and Physics laboratories, Book- keeping and Typewriting. The football field in the rear, was put into shape for use last falland we think, helped to make our team as good as it was since it gave them a longer practice period than has otherwise been possible in going to and from the Leclaire Field. Much remains to be done to the Held, grounds and building, but if each successive installment is as thorough and substantial as the building is now, we shall be glad to wait for a new gym- nasium, auditorium and cafeteria. --------1--T 1926----'-------- 1 1 - 1 1un1n'o Nine Ten ON SECOND FLOOR, LOOKING NORTH PHYSICS LABORATORY SEWING ROOM COOK I NG ROOM 161611011 +11 - - - 1- f --L- i - 1 f - . - T IG E Rfgf ---- FACULT ti , ,fl-.Tl I " L'f,T Iwi,-"'Tl'ff Tufh 0 fmx 4 ' A,,,,,,n - 5:5 659 1, . . .

At the same time we revoke any or all previous wills or testaments made by us. We hereby claim ourselves to be possessed of sound mind, good reason, and unusual brilliance and to be quite attractive in all ways, especially Wiedey. Although we were such dumb creatures in our Freshman year, the Fates have been kind to us and we have developed into the wonderful class here assembled. Therefore, to our younger brothers and sisters whom we leave behind, we bequeath the following fortune, trusting it will not be abused. Clarence Ax bequeaths the football team to Clyde Bothman. Robert Baird leaves his mannerisms and sotto voice to Tillie Herder. Joe Blackmore, the Charleston hound, leaves his laurels to George Meyer. Elma Blixen leaves Clem to the rest of the girls. Frances Bohm leaves her agricultural tendencies to Harold Sparks. Milton Buckley leaves Georgetta to Roy. Dolores Cowan leaves her flaming locks to Charles Erspalmer. Dorothy Duckles leaves her good grades to Flavus Gerber. Herbert Dustman leaves the violet in the shade as far as modesty is concerned. ' Marian Ebey leaves with a giggle. James Flagg leaves his Physics manual in the waste basket. Maurice Fruit leaves his mechanical tendencies to Mabel Jones. Hannah Giese bequeaths her shyness to Jule Blake. Lucy Gillespie leaves her surplus weight to Marie Kubicek. Bernice Keiner leaves her height to Joe Johnson. George Macha wills his oratorical powers to Hedwig Fahrig. Edward McLean leaves his marksmanship to Spatsy Fruit. Edward Obert leaves many broken hearts and sighs. Leo Ochs leaves his place on the basket ball team to Pejo Semon. Churchill Richardson leaves his musical talent to Earl Raut. Thomas Rutherford wills his electrical genius to Ben Richards. Nelson Senn leaves same conditions as Edward Obert, perhaps worse.

H. S." How quickly those days are drawing to a close! Soon they will be over and then we classmates will be scattered and our interests divided. I fixed my eyes upon the book and slowly turned from page to page, when suddenly I found that I was gazing into the fire and watching the logs burning in the grate. As the flames gradually spread they sent forth a. bright blaze that illumined my cozy corner. The tiny flames grew into rolls of smoke, which, twisting and whirling, were vanishing into the chim- ney and finally disappeared into the vast world beyond. Me thought we Seniors are just like those clouds of smoke. As little tots, we started to climb the ladder of education and each year as we grew older we climbed higher and higher. Now we will soon reach the height, and we, too, will be going on, travelling out into the wide world beyond. What will our future be? Ill S2 if If Suddenly, as in an apparition before my eyes, I see a tall stately lady with dignified bearing, addressing a group of men and women who are as- sembled around a long narrow table. I seem to recognize the face, but for' an instant I can't remember, then I know. Who should it be, none other than the President and her cabinet! Irene Smith our "Class President ol' '26," now the President of the United States and the first woman upon whom this great honor has ever been bestowed. Luella Klein, as private secretary to the president is seated at the right. At the farthest corner of this table I behold the Secretary of Interior, Churchill Richardson and Ladimir Au- brecht, the Secretary of Commerce. The House of Representatives! More true and brave women! Mary Love and Dorothie Metcalf have won honor and esteem and have been elected as Representatives from Illinois. The Supreme Court in session! Maurice Fruit is Chief Justice and Elizabeth Gable and Bella Mack are court reporters. But why the great crowd? Why, everyone is eager to hear the famous lawyers, Mary Sebastian and Robert Baird arguing the great question, "Highways"-fGrades.l A Governor's mansion! Governor George Macha and Senator James Flagg are descending the steps and entering a waiting limousine. The Gov- ernor is accompanied by his secretary, Harold Kriege. A hospital in Boston. A doctor, and who should it be? Ralph Buchta! Dr. Buchta is giving instructions to his head nurse Bernice Keiner. Bee is well iitted for this position because of her kind and sympathetic nature. Yes, Velda Sedekum is also a nurse here and she is doing splendid work. What is this magnificent structure? A school of learning and there is a meeting of the faculty in session. The President is Nelson Voss. Nadean Latowsky, Irene Whitcomb, Hannah Giese, and Irma Stone are among the faculty members. nie !l"" 'iF ---------'IeTIGER-----1--'+--- There are the bright lights of Broadway! No, it is a stage and there are four dancers, beautiful and graceful. I recognize them as Mary White- side, Frances Bohm, Dolores Cowan, and Rachel Berry. Herbert Dustman is the great pianist for their large jazz orchestra. He has won great fame by his ability to pedal, but, of course, he uses a player piano. Others are famous! Bob Sheppard and his pals Rich Wiedey and Junior Tuxhorn are burning up the roads in a new racing car. Last year they broke the record in the annual Illinois "500". In the distance is a large department store owned and operated by Dorothy Marti and Frances Ffldworth. This is one of the best stores in the country and here in the office, I see Agnes Spindler and Adelaide Selzer, the department managers, with Virginia Pierson and Isabelle Gilmore, as most efficient stenographers. Now I see a large sign. On it in large letters are these words, "Painless Dentists! Doctors Earl Kriege and Edward 0bert." There is another sign which reads, "Undertaking Parlor." Yes, Edward McLean is an undfrtaker. Lo, here is another building, a Beauty Parlor, where most of the time is spent in ruling the waves! Helen McCune the owner of the shop is assisted by her chum Julia Ebey. IJulia is still a. great talker.J A great sailing vessel is entering New York Harbor. On her deck is Eileen Long a noted movie star-and Lucy Gillespie who is our second Galli Curci. Hazel Bollman an accomplished musician, and Joe Blackmore, a sculptor are returning to America after finishing their studies abroad. What do I see! The stadium at the University of Illinois. Ohio and Illinois are engaged in a battle on the gridiron. Clarence Ax now a coach, is standing confidently on the side lines watching his players heap up the score. Now Chicago and another coach! Leo Ochs has been the coach here for the past two years and he is doing splendid work, for his team has been defeated in only one game during this time. Milton Buckley is a professor here and he, too, is deeply interested in the basketball team. He always attends every game for it brings back memories of the days when he too was a basketball hero at "E, H. S." ' Behold! Ansel Shupack an engineer in the Sahara. He is well liked by the natives and is daily acquiring the manner of a real sheik. tWe always thought Ansey a sheikl. What a change! A large church filled with people. Everyone is listen- ing attentively to the Evangelist Nelson Senn who is delivering one of his great sermons. Out near Tucson, Arizona, I see a wayside inn that is the coziest place on the trail. Here Adelaide Blake, Marian Ehey, Marguerite Cline, and Teresa Flynn are coining money serving delectable dinners and luncheons to tourisfs and travellers. They are the most popular caterers in the West. A magnificent theatre! Warren Harris is stage manager. There ls a Shakespearean production and DeVera Rotman is the leading lady portray- ing the part of "Lady Macbeth." - - - - - - - - - - ---- 1 9 2 cg 1--- - - - - - -----------------------4: Twenty-Nine fp...-... --------- -- ..Ii.-Q..

Dot Gerfen has long since met the idol of her heart. Yes, she had a brilliant wedding and is now housekeeping in grand style in an apartment in St. Louis, Dorothy Duckles is teaching Domestic Science, but in the spring when the orange blossoms bloom she is going to put her know- ledge into practical use. I see a, long narrow road stretching northward and at its end-Detroit. Here amid the bustle of this great city the ambitions of three former chums have been realized. Coleta Mindrup, Irma. Levora and Frances Bernasek are Henry Ford's most treasured secretaries. Joe Stokes is editor of the widely-read paper-"The Chicago Tribune." Joe was the editor of the "Tiger for '26." lThe Class of '26 is mighty proud of you Joel. Ill Ill It lk The settling of the charred logs startled me and, immediately, the scenes vanished from before my eyes. The embers were dying away but the pictures that had been revealed to me left a pleasant and lasting impression upon my memory. As for myself, I suppose I shall still be a dreamer of dreams. E.

Thirty-Three 4---N ------------ JTIGER- - W ---------- + An Odd Occurrence The man certainly was a great talkerg he loved to talk, that, he had shown in the last half hour. Now I am supposed to be a busy lawyer: nevertheless, there was some fascination in the fellow's manner that made one unconsciously listen. So despite the fact that time does not hang heavily on my hands and that a line of clients were waiting, I allowed the fellow to talk on long after our trifling business had been completed. He had wandered on the topic of Education and was now describing the values of a High School training. "Such a High School Education," he resumed, "certainly aids a person materially in his after life." "For instance, my class fpardon me for boasting! but my class gave the world more suc- cesses than any other preceding one." "Why?" "I don't know unless it's simply because we were an exceptional group." "As Freshmen we astounded our 'betters' by our superior knowlcdee, and unlike most, we refused to submit to their traditional tactics. We had a mind of our own and were accepted as equals. Furthermore we were an asset to E. H. S. principles." "Fl, II. I exclaimed? But waving aside my interruption he went on. "Yes, Edwardsville High School. E. H. S. for short, understand?" "Was it possible, could it be, was I to iind a schoolmate in the metropolis itself! And after so many years? Impossible!" A sudden impulse restrained me from revealing our mutual relation to E. H. S., I, intending to pleasantly surprise him later on with this fact. "Wonderful" he was saying, "never will forget our Sophomore year." 'Quite thinned out but still the same old happy bunch." "And Juniors! say they'll never be ahle to imitate that old class." "The principal's pride and the Senior's sorrow, we were the leading force in all activities." "Scholarships! parties! championships! Amon: all athletic teams, Juniors were ably represented. In fact we were the perfect class never to be equalled." Here, he broke off as if he had suddenly remembered an important en- gagement. Glancing at the clock, he snatched his hat from the table and started for the door. "Pardon nie," he murmured apologetieally. HIYHI late as it is, very sorry you know" and had left the room before I could rise to my feet. But I could not let him go. I dashed after the disappearing figure and raised my voice in no uncertain manner, pleading, threatening, cajoling. But to no avail, he had plunged into a crowded eleva'or and was lost to my sight! "What class" I queried as a last resort. From the moving lift came the faint answer, "Old '27." My Own! he was a classmate! and we had failed to recognize each other. Here I will corroborate his statemen's of the Junior Class. They were every bit that he claimed and-more. I am exceedingly sorry that I am unable to relate our Senior year as well, for I, alone, am unequal to the task.

Our number has lately been increased by the mid-years who have joined forces with us in our battle for knowledge. We also had the honor of being the first Fresh- man class to enter the new High School. Besides being an honor, it was an advantage, for every-one else seemed to be just as green as we were, tho' we did get mixed up a few times. We shall have to cease to remember ere we forget the feelings we had every time we heard a bell ring and knew we were supposed to do something. Tho' what, we did not know. Nor will we cver forget the embarrassed feelings we experienced when found in the wrong class room and suddenly realized that in our frantic search for know- ledge, we had walked into a class in Advanced Algebra or a class in French and that the tall form of Mr. Krumsiek or the short one of Miss Benner was approaching to seize us and conduct. us to our right class. But since that time we have taken our place along side the rest of them. Our school spirit cannot be questioned. And now we are looking forward to the time when we will be upper classmen and can see other Freshmen come into E. H. S. Ruth E.

H. S. two trophies. This is the tirst time in football competition that E. H. S. has been rewarded in such a manner. lioth trophies are of silver, one a permanent trophy and tl1e other a traveling trophy. The traveling trophy has been for the last two years, the property of Alton High School and was donated by the Alton Chamber of Com- merce. It is a silver football mounted on a pedestal. The permanent trophy was donated by Lowe and Campbell Sporting Goods Co. of St. Louis. This trophy is a silver loving cup and will be a permanent fixture in our new High School. The presentation of the trophies was con- ducted on Dec. 4, by Mr. Schmidt, principal of the Belleville High School. The presentation took place before the student body of the school. To all, both students and alumni, these trophies are highly prized, mainly because they are our first rewards in athletic competition. We hope that our winning teams will be con- tinued and our annexation of trophies will not be discontinued. -1 --.. ,.,- 1 -,,.4L'l' --.,... .... .. -uint Forty-Five -F ..-... .-------.4 T. lrliln..

Enough men turned out to make three teams. Among them were seven letter men from last year. The first two weeks after school started were too hot and school was dismissed in the afternoon. Not so with football practice. Day after day, no matter how hot it was, about thirty-eight men were out practicing. The warm weather helped them round into shape quickly .so we had a well balanced team on the field for our first game. E. H. S. 13--WOOD RIVER 0. SEPT. 26. Wood River came over, confident of victory. The teams played in a heavy downpour of rain and the field was very slippery. Neither team could do its best but the E. H. S. warriors showed that they easily outclassed their rivals. E. H. S. 28-TROY 0. OCT. 3. The weather man was still against us for 'there was a slow drizzle throughout the game. The field was rough and hard going but we played all around the Trojans. The second team played the whole third quarter and put up a real scrap. At 110 time during the game did Troy threaten our goal. E. H. S. 0-KIRKWOOD 16. OCT. 10. The team journeyed out of the state for the first time in recent years. The weather man was propitious for it did not rain. In his stead Old Man Bad Luck showed up and we lost. The squad put up a real fight against their far heavier opponents but they lost in the last ten minutes of the game. In this game, "Jug" Fruit, who was showing remarkable ability as a quarter- back, received an injury which kept him out of the rest of the games. E. H. S. 20-ALTON 0. OCT. 17. Alton is Edwardsville's old rival and the squad went to Alton with the idea of turning the tables on them. As a result we came home with a 20-0 score in our favor. It was the first time Alton had been beaten by Edwards- ville since 1916. The teams were evenly matched but the E. H. S. squad showed a better fighting spirit than the Altonians. - - - - - - - - - ------+ 1 9 2 6 f------------- - --------------W-----is Forty-Nine Qu-..-..----I--.. ... 1 - ..-u.-.li-nn-.u 1-1,-.- 1 E.

Belleville jolted them somewhat and when they awoke, Belleville had the larger end of the score. The least said about this game the better. E. H. S. 14-LITCHFIELD 0. OCT. 31, Many of the Litchfield fellows bragged to the E. H. S. Girl Scouts of the large score by which they were going to beat us. Our team took them down several notches to the tune of 14-0. Edwardsville showed the stuff they were made of when they held Litchfield for four downs inside the five yard mark. E. H. S. 16-COLLINSVILLE 6. NOV. 11. In the best game played in Edwardsville for a number of years, the E. H. S. team trounced Collinsville by a score of 16-6. The E. H. S. line was far superior to that of Collinsville. Four times during the game they held Collinsville for downs. The backfield worked well with the line and both gave excellent interference which enabled Ax to score a. touchdown on a sixty yard run after intercepting a forward pass. The game was played before one of the largest crowds that ever assembled in Edwardsville to wit- ness a gridiron battle. E. H. S. 13-JERSEYVILLE 7. NOV. 14. The squad journeyed to Jerseyville for the second game in a week. The "scrubs" did their stuff for three quarters and when Jerseyville tied the score the first team went in and "linked" another touchdown over for Edwardsville. E. H. S. 16'-GRANITE CITY 0. NOV. 20. Granite came to Edwardsville to try to keep us from winning the 0l13lllpi0IlSlllp.- They put up a good fight but the Local squad took them down the line for a 16-0 score, 'Ra.y! E. H. S. in first place. This game marked the end of one of the most successful football years in the history of the' school. With only two games lost and seven won, E. H. S. can be justly proud of the team which represented her on the grid- iron. We hope for even a better team next year, and no doubt our expecta- tions will not be in vain, for some good material will not be graduated. o!9u--n1nn1:n1so1ln1ln--u-ul-n:-uu:lu1ol-ll-ll-ll- 1 9 2 6 :I1ll:n1n-ll- 1 1111111111:-lux :limi Fifty TIGER-u ---- W -n--- ---- --1+ 1-112 1 9 2 6 ZQ -..-,.---- ... - - - -E- 4 ------- TIG ER- , - - -L - - ff:-at CAPT.-ELECT BOTHMAN Halfback Clyde is a hard hittin' rarin' halfback. lie was one of the most consistent ground gainers in the backlield.

I've viewed hundreds of manly struggles, but four of the lot were prime. One was a Yale-Harvard conflict, one was a South Bend kill, One was a Gob-Doughboy friction, one was at Edwardsville. Now I never ca1'ed much for passing, considering it all this way, It's liable to queer real football, tho' probably it's here to stay: Though there's times when one thinks that it's useful and there's times when it maker one deplore, But the sight of a smash or off tackle crash, thrills one to the very core. I sat in the stands at New Haveng Yale's prospects looked bad indeed, For Harvard's boys had out-played them, and the Crimson was in the lead. Then in the final quarter, when to most the game seemed done, I Yale put up a terrific fight, scored, re-scored and won. Then I watched Stanford's vain struggle, 'gainst a team ot' a better breed: Though they fought a wonderful contest, to lose Fate had decreed. Even when snowed in and covered, by a mountainous opposing score, They went in and gave their last bit of iight to a game lost long before. To the Polo Grounds I once wandered, a friend had insisted I see A game, he claimed would enthrall me, between our forces of land and seag He was right I soon admitted, 'midst the din of thousands hoarse, Though the "Mids" fought well and tried like hell, the "Kaydetsl' won, of course, The last was a tiny "podunk," somewhere out in Illinois. 'Twas by sheer accident I attended, a missed train an' a persuading boy. This chap wl1o'd sold me a ticket, said the game would be a fight. I went as I said by accident, and I found the chap was right. The game I saw was a good game, much better'n the usual kindg It surprised me very greatly, such a game in this place to find. The invaders were a fine lot, from Collinsville they came: But as the locals were a little finer, to lose it was no shame. Yes, Edwardsville's team was better, better than I've seen for longg The fact that they're champs of their district, will aid me from being wrong Now perhaps I've erred in placing this last game with the rest But this much I'll say and let the matter stay-the Edwardsville boys did their best s------ ------ e ---- 1---1 1 9 2 6 --------- ---------------f Fifty-Four e-h-M-------m-M--rF----- -f-- TI G E R ---- --1-1--M----W - - - - -A--Q The J erseyville Game To Jerseyville-we "jersied", with our jerseys nice and clean. From Jerscyville-we "jersied", with our jerseys-but not clean The scrubs went in the first half, with feelings intermingled, And as they'd stopped and waited, their solar plexus' tingled. The whistle blown and the ball kicked, Tackled, scrimmage, the fear of being licked, The frenzied drives and confused retreats, The rushes and blows and pounding feet! A quadrant's rest, renewed conflict, Each man his best, a signal picked. A touchdown scored, a mighty joy, The best of feelings, to a playing boy. A conqueror's tread at the half's respite, A longing to show one's hidden might. Revived and vigorous, once more the charge, Relaxed vigilance, they're scoring large. Once more the strife, with anger mixed, Retribution, revenge in greedy memory fixed. At last the points, the game is won, The lasting minutes, the work all done! The Scrubs Many of you football fans who have rooted lor old E. H. S. and compared this year's team with teams of former years, have probably praised individual stars and the team as a whole. A few may have realized the fact, but most of the fans did not stop to think that the team on the field did not develop by their own initiative. There are always about ten or twelve players who are probably too small or do not measure up to first team standard in some way or other. These fellows came out night after night and were banged and knocked around for an hour or so by the first team. They knew that they had little chances of earning their letter or playing in a big game, but still, they were cheerful. They came out because they knew that they were helping to develop the first team players and produce a championship team. We, the Football Team of 1925-26, take off our hats to the scrubs who have helped to develop us into the Champions of the South- western Conference.

The first call was for those who were not playing football. About 25 men answered this call. The second call was issued when the football season was ended. About 20 more men showed up and made a squad of about 45 men for the coach to choose from. He wisely thinned the squad to about 20 by the first game. Among those 20 there were 7 letter men from last year. E. H. S. 30H-MASCOUTAH 13. DEC. 11. The first game of the season was played on the home fioor. Mascoutah put up a good fight but the E. H. S. quintet were far superior to their rivals. Buckley and Ochs were red-hot and seldom missed a shot. E. H. S. 14-WOOD RIVER 8. DEC. 18. The E. H. S. squad journeyed to Wood River for its second battle of the season. It was a fast game throughout but the County Seaters came out on top. Buckley and Ochs again showed up well. E. H. S. 16-CENTRAL H. S. 23. DEC. 23. For the only "out of the state" game of the season, E. H. S. was defeated by Central High of St. Louis. The game was played in a practice gym and the E. H. S. team was handicapped by inadequate facilities. Buckley was the individual star of the game. E. H. S. 26-ALUMNI 16. DEC. 31. The old grads whipped a team together to try and show what they "used to do". They did as well as could be expected but because of the lack of training they were defeated. The "rising generation" held its own against the "has beens"-what! E. H. S. 18-O'FALLON 3. JAN. 8. O'Fallon came to Edwardsville for the first basketball game played be- tween the two schools in recent years. The game started off as if it would be a close game, but Buckley and Ochs got warmed up and made it a one sided affair. The E. H. S. loopers were far superior to their opponents in shooting-hence the top heavy score. E. H. S. 11-COLLINSVILLE 18. JAN. 12. E. H. S. journeyed to Collinsville and were convinced that they would avenge last seasons defeats by them. The game was one of the best played this season. It was a nip and tuck affair to the finish. At the end of the half E. H. S. was leading 9 to 7 but lost in the final stages of the game by the score of 18-11. Our forward wall was unable to find the basket during the second half and when they did find it the ball rolled out. E. H. S. 27YALTON 9. JAN. 15. Edwardsville went to Alton for its second game in a week., It was an ideal night for a basketball game and edged on by the multitude of E. H. S. fans present, our team showed form equal to that of a mid-season team. Their team work was excellent and their shooting was never better. It was a far different brand of basketball than that played at Collinsville. The final score of 27-9 showed that Edwardsville has a team to he proud of. 1-------H ------------ 1 9 2 s ---- ------------ -: f - - Fifty-Eight -----1--1-----A ---- TIGE R ------ if-M--I--1--L11---f E. H. S. 27-GRANITE CITY 13. JAN. 18. Granite came to Edwardsville to try and defeat our championship team. It was a sad day for Granite, though E. H. S. had an easy time defeating them. It was marked by rough playing on both sides and at times repre- sented a young football game. The "Three Horsemen" Ochs, Young and Buckley, were still on the job and showed some real team work compared to that of Granite. E. H. S. 20-COLLINSVILLE 13. JAN. 22. One of the best games seen in several years was played when Collins- ville was smothered by E. H. S. by a score of 20-13. Out for revenge, due to their previous defeat handed them, E. H. S. ran wild and ran up a score early in the first quarter, an advantage never overcome by Collinsville. The E. H. S. team was at its best, and whipped the Collinsville quint in every respect. This victory put E. H. S. in second place and shoved Collinsville in third position. E. H. S. 17-GREENVILLE 16. JAN. 23. E. H. S. showed the strain of the Collinsville game, in their encounter with Greenville and were unable to display their best brand of basketball. However they played hard enough, and good enough, to overcome the heavier Greenville team. Greenville was one point in the lead and just one minute to go, when Buckley came through with a field goal and saved the day for us: the final score being 17-16. E. H. S. 18-WOOD RIVER 9. JAN. 26. Wood River came over determined to give us a setback and they came mighty close in accomplishing this realization. The E. H. S. team was slow in gett.ing started and Wood River ran ahead for a while but Buckley and Ochs soon found the basket and put us in the lead. From then on we mastered the Wood River team and the final score stood in our favor. E. H. S. 13-MT. OLIVE 17. JAN. 29. In our third non-conference game, we were defeated by Mt. Olive, in a hard fought game. We kept the heavier opponents, however, from running up a score and several times tied them. The final score stood in their favor. "Anse" Shupack was the star of the game and made four baskets all being long shots. Buckley missed this game, on account of an injured knee and his absence was certainly felt. E. H. S. 30-ALTON 10. FEB. 2. E. H. S. gave Alton another real drubbing when they came over here. The final score was 30-10, and our offensive power was of the very best. Alton at first showed some signs of putting up a good game, but these soon vanished and E. H. S. rolled up a big score. The second team played part of the last quarter and also played well. E. H. S. 17-BELLEVILLE 6. FEB. 5. In a fast, furiously fought game E. H. S. conquered the conference lead- ing Belleville team and thus secured first place. The E. H. S. team out- played the St. Clarites in every department and were ahead the entire game. Belleville tried hard to overcome the Orange and Black lead but to no avail. Final score resulted in our victory. ---u--- ------ 1 9 2 6 ea- ----------- ------- --------.5 Fifty'-Nine ju-ll -------------ETIGER-M----------M E. H. S. 8-JERSEYVILLE 17. FEB. 6. Rejoicing on the victory over Belleville and determined to cop the cham- pionship proved only momentary: for we were defeated by Jerseyville by a score of 17-8. The team showed the strain of the hard Belleville game the preceding night and were unable to set the pace. Jerseyville took advantage of this and ran up a large score the first quarter, which we did not overcome. The defeat was hard to take, but we still considered our team superior to that of Jerseyville. E. H. S. 17-GRANITE 13. FEB. 9. The team still slumped in their game with Granite. The men seemed as though they couldn't get going and were unable to find the basket to advant- age. Granite's stalling tactics, however, hampered E. H. S.'s chances to run up a score and made the game extremely slow. Shupack was the star of this game, making two long shots and making the game a more interesting affair. The final score was 17-13, but Granite threw a mighty big scare in to us, when they came close to tying the score. E. H. S. 21-MADISON 5. FEB. 12. E. H. S. came out of their slump in the Madison game, which the score well indicates. Playing, improved basketball, in every phase of the game, E. H. S. literally walked away from their opponents. The .men found the basket quite easy to hit and baskets were made frequently. E. H. S. 15-STAUNTON 19. FEB. 19. E. H. S. lost another non-conference game, this time to Staunton. The playing of the E. H. S. team was below standard and at no time did they display good basketball. Staunton proved to be strong opponents and sur- prised every one by their playing. They held the lead from the oft' set and E. H. S. never threatened to overtake them. E. H. S. 18-JERSEYVILLE 12. FEB. 26. In the deciding game of the season and with the championship of the Conference at stake E. H. S. romped over their closest rival by a score of 18-12. Playing before a record breaking crowd, that filled the Jerseyville gym to capacity, E. H. S. put up a strong game and were a little too much for the Jersey team. The score, however, was always close and the game was not decided until the closing minutes of the final quarter. The half ended in a score of 10-8 in favor of E. H. S. but our strong defense kept Jerseyville at bay for the rcniainder of the game. This game was one of the best games ever played by E. H.

While he was eligible, he showed some neat work. He was a good' floor man and could be depended upon to score when needed. His serviceswere missed in the tournament. ANSEL SHUPACK, Forward "Aus" was the smallest man on the team, but this did not mean that he wasn't useful. He was always able to pep up the team and his work in the tournament was especially outstanding. CHARLES GERHARDT, Guard This was "Chid's" first year out and he proved himself a, steady player. We expect great things of him next year. CLYDE BOTHMAN, Guard Clyde is a man who could be depended upon for the full game and seldom did he allow his man a decent shot. He shared the honor of receiving the guard position on the All District Team with his brother, Clem. MILTON BUCKLEY, Forward "Boll" was the best player in the con- ference and in the tournament. His floor work and tleld goals were major factors in the winning of the conference title. He made the All District Team as for- ward. LEO OCHS, Center Although unable to play last year on account of sickness, Ochs came back this year and easily made the team. He always played a flue game and was a clever floor man and an excellent shot. He was one of the main cogs in the E. H. S. machine, always llghting and keeping the rest fighting. CLEM BOTHMAN, Guard Edwardsville has seen few guards that could equal Clem as adefensive general, and at the same time, score efficiently.

Seventeen teams participated and they were divided into two groups according to the enrollment of the school. The tournament was held on March 4, 5, 6 and aroused much interest throughout the entire county. E. H. Sfs first opponent was Belleville. By superior playing E. H. S. managed to defeat them and remain in the tournament. The final score was 20-15 but the game was hard fought and well played and Belleville did their best to emerge as victors. The second game E. H. S. participated in was against Jerseyville on Friday afternoon. The game was as ha1'd fought as the Belleville game and for a while it looked pretty bad for E. H. S. Jerseyville secured an early lead and at the half led by a score of 7-4. The second half E. H. S. opened up and began finding the basket. The third quarter ended in a score of 13-9 in our favor. The last quarter was a thriller. Both teams fought as they never fought before. Och's basket, however, put the game over for E. H. S. The final score was 15-11. The semi-final game was with Lebanon. Lebanon proved no match for us and seemed to be an "overestimated" team. At any rate they were help- less before the assault of E. H. S. The half ended in a score of 13-6, but the third quarter we ran up a big score and this period ended in a score of 24-8. The second team played the last quarter and held Lebanon to three points. Final score, 24-11. The final game of the tournament was played with Collinsville. E. H. S. played a hard game but the previous Lebanon game slowed them up con- siderably. Leading at the half and third quarter, we could not keep up the pace with the Collinsville team, who had a much easier schedule. Aided by several long shots, Collinsville soon jumped into the lead and maintained it to the finish. Fighting gallantiy as only E. H. S. men can do, did not prevent defeat and the final score was 24-19. The team played wonderful basketball during the entire tournament and covered themselves with glory. Defeating such teams as Belleville, Jerseyville, and Lebanon and in such a short period of time is no easy feat, but E. H. S. accomplished it in fine style. As a result of the wonderful showing exhibited by E. H. S., two of our men were honored on the All- District Team. These two men were, Buckley, chosen for forward and Clyde Bothman, chosen for guard. Captain Young, also, received honorable mention. -------------e 192e-------------- EQifif- L 1+ 1 - - -- -:--- T1 G E R-1:-------f-L -1111 +iiJiF-5 Washington U. Tournament IG. Il.

The first call for candidates was answc-red by about thirty aspirants for baseball honors. They were large and small but Coach Blodget, in due time, had a good team whipped into shape. Most, of the fellows had played at baseball before and the season was considered fairly satisfactory. The team played ten games, winning foul' alld l0S1l1g six. We look forward to a more successful season for 1926. The first game was played at Granite City. The sleepiness of our outficldcrs was instrumental in our defeat by the score of 10-2. Wood River came to Edwardsville next but were turned away in defeat. Score 13-8. After our victory over Wood River we were all primed to beat East St. Louis but alas! We were Iu'nt'r'n 9-2. Next the Staunton outfit came confident of a victory, in fact so confident that the pitcher wore overalls. They were sadly mistaken though, by a score of 9-8. After our Staunton victory we "knew" we could beat Collinsville. Result 14-0 in their favor. The old jinx seemed to be on our trail. Belleville came to Edwardsville and walloped us 15-6. 011 the way to Alton we must have lost our jinx. We won 12-11, Ray! ln the first game between O'Fallon and Edwardsville we were defeated by the close score of 3-0. Mas- eoutah came next and we turned t'rem away to the tune of 18-10, our favor. Madison invited us to play at their school picnic. It was 21 picnic. They won 12-2. Thus ended a season that was a success in many ways. There were many bright spots in the season and some players were developed for next season, The letterinen, thirteen of them, are: Captain, Ansel Shupack: Captain-elect, Duffyg Gerfeng Fruitg Clyde llothmang Erspanierg Hartmang Axg Ochsg Dustmang Bernerg Bairdg Martin Shnpack, THE MAYO TROPHY E.

Despite that however we had a number of matches with other schools of this vicinity and won from Granite City, All0l1 and Collinsville in singles and from Alton and Granite City in doubles. Paul Mysch represented our school in singles and wo11 his letter, the first letter that has ever been awarded in tennis. The "E" for tennis is fancy or script live inches high. The school was represented in doubles by Maynard Motz, Ansel Shupack, Maurice Fruit and Richard Wiedey, who having had fewer years of experience than Mysch showed that they possessed certain fun- damentals of the game that should be manifest in their game this season. With three of last years players back and augmented by Albert Tuxhorn and Milton Buckley, there are prospects for tennis to compare favorably with other major sports in our High School. This season the conference has recognized tennis as a major sport and adopted a set of rules to govern the champion- ship. A. G.

Coach lllorlget saw much promising material in school. At the first call for candidates about ten of the fellows came out. They worked hard but due to the lack of experience E. H. S. did 11ot succeed in winning any of the meets entered. Edwardsville accepted five invitations to attend meets. APRIL 25 The first was a triangular meet with Granite City and Wood River. For a green team, E. H. S. showed up well scoring nineteen points. Wood River won the meet. MAY 2 The next meet was the McKendree interscholastic meet. Coach took two men over there but Captain Young was the only one to do anything. He took fourth place in the 440 yard dash. MAY 6 Edwardsville we11t to Jerseyville for a duel meet. A number of the E. ll. S. men starred but Jersey- ville won the meet. a percentage basis. MAY 9 Edwardsville went to Wood River and participated in a triangular meet with Wood Rivtr and Mas- coutah. Edwardsville showed up well but was outclassed by its more experienced rivals. MAY 23 The conference meet was held at Wood River. Edwardsville had high hope and went over there with the idea of putting forth everything they had. The team made a good showing although only three men placed. Captain Young took second place in the 440 yard dash and received a silver medal. Ax took third place in the javelin and received a bronze medal. Maeha tied for fourth place in the javelin. Thus ends a season that was a success in a way. Although we won no meets, the fellows are more experienced for this season and Edwardsville hopes to take the Confe1'ence Championship from East St. Louis. An engraved loving cup was awarded Captain Young our freshman runner as a reward t'or his track merits. He scored the greatrst number of points during the 1925 season. Each year this reward is made, as a token of the School's appreciation. ii "9" VI' MACHA, AX, COACH BLODGET, YOUNG, SENN Sixty-Five """ . . . .H .... .t .... .... .. ... .. . ... up .g.......- .- ofr ' efTIGER-t-+14------- SHUPACK FRUIT The vo operation of the student body is a iivcessary favtor in the Sl1CCGbS of athle-ties.

The idea was gleefully accepted by the girls, each of whom cut several years off her age, and several inches off her skirt. But, according to Miss Benner, Dean of Girls, the rejuvenation was a little too complete, and the girls were requester! to regain a little of their lost dignity. This caused quite a dis- cussion, because after all, it was rather fun to be young again. After a short time, however, every girl added a little to her age, by lengthening her skirt and rolling up her stockings. On the whole, the party was fun. The Seniors played a "football" game. A lunch was served consisting of soda-pop, sandwiches, and an immense peppermint stick. After lunch, the rest of the evening was spent in dancing, until the children were finally sent home to bed tpresumablyl. H allowe' en Party X The annual Hallowe'en Party was held in the Gym this year. To be absolutely truthful, it was more or less of a fizzle. It was not due, however, to any fault of the faculty, who did all they could to make it a success. It was due mainly to the kids themselves, who either failed to attend or acted like sticks if they did. A course in dancing for the boys of E. H. S. would not be far amiss. Prizes were given for the most unusual costumes. Jimmy Flagg, Hedwig Fahrig and a family group consisting of: Wilma Gerfen, Frances Stokes, Margaret Moorman, Mildred Phelan, and Gertrude Stieren received prizes. For eats we had apples, cider and doughnuts. . The Art Exhibit This year an Art Exhibit was held in the High School for the benefit of the public. The pictures were secured from the Elson Art Pub. Co., Mass. A number of good pictures were obtained and were hung in the main hall of the building. A contest was held among the various High School organizations in the ticket sales. The winner received a picture free of charge. This contest was won by the High School Orchestra. The pictures displayed were certainly very good ones and were an education in themselves. Despite this fact, the exhibit did not prove to be a financial success. -------------- 1926--------------w - - ------nr Seventy-Three .g...-.... .. - 5..4..-......-.. Seventy-Four ---------:ffTIGER---------------- -nf Many pictures were given the school by individuals, High School organiz- ations and clubs. These pictures and their donor are as follows: Hailing the Ferry-The Monday Club. The Acropolis at Athens-Trefon Siampos. Sir Galahad-The Hiking Club. The Rheims Cathedral-The Public Speaking Class. A Dash for the Timber-The Football Squad. The Boyhood of Lincoln-The Orchestra. It was hoped that several hundred dollars would be realized from the Exhibit whereby the school could purchase a large number of pictures, but as a result, were only able to secure three, these being: "In the Pasture." "Concord Bridge." "The Coming Storm." Football Banquet On December 3, at six o'c1ock, the cooking class gave a banquet to the football team, in the lower corridor of our High School. Invitations were issued to all football men who had practiced the entire season. After the banquet had been served, Lauretta Gerne rendered several popular selections on the saxaphone with her accompanist, Hedwig Fahrig. Mr. Krumsiek acted as toastmaster and congratulated the team on its good work throughout the season. He then called upon Mr. Ford who had cleverly revised Lincoln's Gettysburg Address into terms of football. Coach Blodget was next called upon and gave a brief history of football, contrasting the game of today with that of twenty years ago. This concluded the program and, after singing "Dear Old High," everyone was dismissed. Since the banquet was a very successful one, Miss Heffron and her cooking class deserveba big vote of thanks for their good work. It shows that the girls, as well as the boys, appreciate a team of champions. Chamber of Commerce Banquet On the night of December 16, a banquet was given the football team by of Commerce. The banquet is given annually in appreciation services and the whole football squad was present. the Chamber of the teams' Mr. J. C. the principal Higgins, Head Football Coach of Washington University was speaker of the evening and he told a series of stories concern- ing the game. His assistant coach, Mr. Marquard also gave a short speech. were introduced by Mr. Gueltig who presided at the dinner. program who gave talks were Mr. A.

Frances Bohm, as Celia, the self- sacriiicing sister who decides to have a love affair of her own, was delightful. Junior Tuxhorn was also good as the much-discussed Colonel Smith. It is really unfair to give particular mention to any of the cast, because they were all practically perfect. Athletic Benefit Picture "The Street of Forgotten Men," a Paramount Elm, starring Percy Mar- mont, Mary Brian, and Neil Hamilton, was given at the Wildfy Theatre for the benefit of the Athletic Association. Junior Carnival The Juniors gave an "athletic" carnival on February 23rd. Various contests were held during the first part of the evening. Among these were a scooter race, in which many lost their balance as well as their dignity, and an obstacle race. Prizes for athletic skill were nwardrd to Miss Ernest, Mr. Blodget and Mr. Dahm. To refresh the mighty "athletes," hot dogs and soda pop were served. As the Juniors have a reputation for serving good "eats," the party was well attended. The rest of the evening was spent in dancing. Most of the music was furnished by I.ala Ryder. ,l..:.::......- -.... .,......-.:- .71 - -..T 1 9 2 6 4.. -... - ..... - -,-,,.,,,,,,,,.,,,, Seventy-Five ju-nu-u- 5---H ----M-------- -N-TIGER---H ------- -- + F reshman-Sophomore Party The Freshmen and Sophomores held their annual party in the gym, March 23, under the supervision of Miss Logan and Mr. Dahm. There were a large number in attendance. The kids were divided into tive groups to represent different makes of cars. Each group performed stunts and prizes were awarded the winning cars. Soda pop and cookies were served. An excellent five-piece orchestra furnished music for dancing. S ophronias' Wedding The play, "Sophronias' Wedding" was given by the Girl Scouts in the Junior High School auditorium on the night of March 11. The play was cleverly given and was a great success. The costumes worn by the cast were made in the same style as those worn in the latter part of the nineteenth -century. The play consisted of three acts and between acts selections on the piano were given by Beulah Brunworth and Lala Ryder. The proceeds of the play go to finance the girls expense at camp this summer. The Tattletale The Tattletale, a monthly paper published by the Sophomore English classes, was introduced this year and its success need not be mentioned. Under the able direction of Miss Gewe the paper has enjoyed a steady progress and from the offset has increased its circulation. The purpose of the Tattletale is to chronicle the events of the school year, so they may be brought clearly to the student body. Every member of the Sophomore English classes partakes in the working up of the paper and through this work they receive the necessary training along these lines. Starting with four pages in the first issue, the publication now contains six pages with excellent chances of even increasing further. Through the courtesy of the Edwardsville Intelligencer, the paper is printed on their presses and saves the Sophomoris an added expense. With such profound interest manifested ,iii the paper and with the con- tinuance of hard work by the Sophomores the paper will no doubt become larger.

Richard Wiedey Editorials The 1926 "Tigel'." lt. is with a feeling of relief that we, the 1926 Tiger Staff, offer this volume for the approval or disapproval of the student body. The merits and dernerits of the book can be judged by those who read it. We offer no apology. It has been our goal to produce an annual worthy of the school that it is to represent. Starting work immediately after election, the staff first decided upon the general idea that was to be carried throughout the book. Ideas are necessarily limited because of the financial conditions which we must un- dergo. Quality rather than quantity appealed to the staff, and the best that could be obtained was used to carry this out. Correct classification and un- prejudiced viewpoint, and proper recognition of deserving parties were our principles. The stat? is proud of the fact that it introduced a number of new although perhaps expensive featuresg that it has done its work to the bcst of its ability. Friends in Need In editing an annual, a great deal of extra help must be secured in order to work up the book. All the copy must be typed before it is sent to the printer, and help in arranging thc pictures is necessary. Write-ups of various class activities must be secured. This year most of the typing was done by two members of the StafI', namely, Coleta Mindrup and Frances Bernasek. This represented a large amount of work, and they have certainly done their part in making the annual a success. The photography this year was done by Mr. Loewen. He also helped us materially in all other picture work, and was never too busy to enlighten us on things we were not certain of. All the pictures were highly satis- factory, and will appear tirst class in the annual. Good photo-:raphy always adds to the merits of a bookg Mr. Loewen has done his task well. The various write-ups, which the staff had to rely on others to do. were well done. The articles were well written, and contain good reading material. It is this school co-operation which always goes a long way in making any annual a success. Other friends who helped us during the year and whose work we appre- ciate greatly, are: Albert Tuxhorn, Irma Levora and Esther Barnett. -------------- 19261----------------------is Seventy-Nine ,..................-......-..- -..-.....-., T1 G E R ,.....a. ..... - -.- ....., Calendar September: School opens.

Today we have one of the finest school buildings in the state, a real center of learning. But, let us go back to the olden days, when education had hardly gained a foothold, and trace the development to the present time. The first school in this locality was probably started in 1807, and taught by .Ioshua Atwater. ln 1818 a school known as Ebenezer was opened, about a mile southeast of Edwardsville. In 1829 school was taught in a building in the rear of the old Tuxhorn Opera House. This was probably the first school in Edwardsville proper. The question of separate schools for boys and girls had been freely discussed during the time filled by the first teachers and it was thought that the sexes should be separated. The Madison Academy had been chartered by the legislature in 1819, and under this act a frame building was erected and school opened. But the school flourished so that in a short time both girls and boys attended and the boys' school was admitted to be a failure. In the Thirties another school was opened and proved so successful that after a. time the school in the academy failed. The academy, however, was later taken over by Samuel Allord and flourished under his management. The yfar 1857 probably ended the tuition system and the beginning of frce schools. The first record of a school board is found in 1858. The schools had held their sessions in the basement of the old Methodist church, and in a. building in "lower town." The need of a new school building had become urgent, but the district had no grounds nor means to provide for lt. At an election in September 1858, the question to purchase a site and erect a school, the cost not to exceed 5S6,000, was voted on, and carried. In June of the succeeding year the site was selected and the deed closed in July 1860. It was ncessary, however, to borrow 510,000 for the erecting of the building, and the loan was made. The structure was completed on July 1, 1864. In April 3, 1873 an election was held in pursuant to the statutes for the election of a school board of six members and resulted in the selection of M. C. Dale, B. E. Hoffman, J. A. Prickett, Fritz Iscnsee, C. T. Cook and William Fiegenbaum. M. C. Dale served as President and C. T. Cook as Secretary. 1 p It was thought that the three story building would provide ample room for the number of students attending school, but enrollment increased each year and again brought about crowded conditions. The need of another building became necessary and a petition was circulated about and signed by two-thirds of the voters authorizing the erection of a new school and at the election held on July 2, the board was given power to issue bonds to the amount of S4,000. The contract was let and before the end of the year, the building known as the primary school was completed. --i- - - 4 - - ,- - 1 9 2 cf, ml - - -1 4 ------ ---------- ff Eighty-Five +........ .- -----------eTIGER-f-H---------- The basements of two churches and a private residence were necessary to accommodate the pupils attending school so still another building was necessary. An election was held for this purpose and the new school plan was defeated. The first principal in the New High School was M. B. Sherman. Those who servrd afterwards were: P. P. Rider, H. H. Keebler, William Florin, Chas. S. Stratton, J. N. Dewell, S. H. Brown, George F. Miner, J. M. Park- inson. , As education increased a still larger school was necessary to accommodate the students. The project was discussed and it was finally decided to erect another building. This building was completed in 1912 and is today used as the Junior High School. The lirst superintendent in this school was Mr. C. F. Ford, who still holds the position. The building was erected by Joseph Kesl and Company and consists of three floors. Thus, we have the development of education in Edwardsvilleg a develop- ment that outlines the growth and interest in education through the various stages.

The merits of this book are for you to decide upon as you think best. We hope, however, that the book meets with your approval in every respect. We, the "Tiger Staff of '26," have labored hard in publishing this book and we hope that our efforts will not be unrewarded. A number of new ideas have been introduced this year. Each year the work of publishing the annual becomes harder, because old ideas and customs used for many years must be discarded to some extent. 1 We have tried to make this thirteenth volume of the Tiger as nearly mechanically correct as possible. We have tried to make it worthy of representing E. H. S. by securing the best engraving and printing that the book could afford. We have wanted to do more than produce a mechanically perfect book. We have tried to catch the real E. H. S. spirit and make it a part of this "Tiger." We have tried to record on these pages the true happenings of school life from day to day. We have attempted to record these happenings in such a way that in afteryears you may glance over the pages of this book and recall fond memories of the days of happiness and friendship 'neath the colors you love so well. If we can bring back thoughts like these to you, then we will consider our work well done and our service to you and to E. H. S. complete. --------in----1 192e-------------- One H umlrtd Thirty +-'--.---m----u----'-.-------1-- TIGER-A--'-e------------11------------11-"E ox -fww 4f1a11wQ,f:w Auto mphs , W - , mm, ffm, Zig , 7jt,,.,,.,, A,,,., N I, H, 'av ' fvftf-Mba, '1-4 wmziwivif ' 1 y,,,,,,., for-44-QM -'17 HJ ,, ,I , , Z f, A I 36 . v f L' "L?Z', l .1 an ",u,,g,f, I iam 7 Jn, ax Ya ,S n .
