We say "our" because we, the class of '27, feel that during our stay, however brief, we have acquired a certain degree of posses- sion which nothing can remove! We leave behind us the school actual, the school of brick, stone, and mortar: but we carry with us the real school, the school made up of school spirit, reminisoenee and fond memories, memories of triumphs and disasters, of school fellows and teachers, and all who have won their way into our hearts. So we feel that these two schools, that of mind and that of matter, are so inseparable, that as we keep alive the likeness of one we honor that of the other. 'l'o do this, we the class of '27, have attempted to represent the best of our beautiful school by the gleaming portals by which we first entered, and by which we last leave. 'l'hus it happens that their image lies engraved on the shanks of our rings, on the covers of our Annual, and last. and more lastingly in the depths of our emotions. 1 9 2 7 'I' wo er Al m y fi! il M fur 1927 Euhliahvh hg the Srninr 61112155 nf Ehumrhanillv Qigh Srhunl Ehmarhmrillv, Zlllinnia 1 9 2 7 Th rf-0 The Tiqer w Q 5 E 19 2 7 F 0 ll 1' Editorial The er 'weve-Wwm 557142 Tiger Stay?

Foremost among these has been the matter of finances-the t'jinx" of many Tiger Editors. In order to draw as closely as possible thc daily drama of our pulsing High School and yet keep within the dread limit, we have been forced to omit many gaudy and expensive features and to resort to utter simplicity in many respects. If you, our critics, our faculty, and our friends, feel after perusing the following pages, that this simplicity has not been utilized in vain, we shall know that wc have succeeded in accomplishing our duty. ' For our duty we saw it, lay in the necessity in giving this annual our time, attention and the best of our talents, in adapting our viewpoints to suit yours and in interpreting and setting down in so many lines the truest and the best of Edwardsville High School. This has taken much work but if you believe that this book can, in later years, open to you a vista of half-forgotten bright spots of your High School career, then we shall feel satisfied and amply repaid. 1 9 2 7 Five The ef i Acknowledgments To the various teachers, students, and friends who have aided the Staff to Write, compile, and assemble the enormous amount of copy necessary to the publication of any Annual, We desire to express our thanks and appreciation. Primarily, we wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to the Cen- tral Engraving Company for their excellent engraving and especially to M1'. Randall, who supervised and aided us in many Ways in the planning of our Annual. lt is not every Annual Staff that has the co-operation of the faculty. We were especially fortunate in this, having Mr. Krumsiek for the faculty advisor, who always rendered us so much valuable assistance. Other members of the faculty also aided us in correcting, revising and making of copy. Prominent among these were Miss Gewe and Miss Martin. In order to transcribe the necessary copy into legible form, Emily Berner, Marian Wotier and Frieda Schneider volunteered to do the typing. This was a very painstaking and tedious occupation and much credit is due them because of the splendid Way in which they handled the Work. ' Then the members of the various classes who Wrote the class histories and other articles in this issue, deserve much credit for their extremely interesting accounts. Withoixt their aid we should have failed in our ultimate effort. To Mr. Strebler, our official class photographer, who has submitted a first- class grade of photography and has willingly and cheerfully aided us when- ever We required assistance, We wish to make a special note of gratitude. 1 9 2 7 Six Foreword We, the Tiger Staff of '27, wish to make known in these few words our steadfast and sincere inten- tion to set forth and preserve in this, the 14th volume of the Tiger, a true picture of our school life, as well as to provide a record that will materially aid the class of '27 to remember in later years, the triumphs, the disasters, and the attachments formed during this basic cycle of their lives. 1 9 2 7 Seven Dedication To MR. HARVEY B. GUNN: In appreciation of his deep interest and per- sonal participation in our various school activities and athletics, and his cheerful willingness to aid us individually at all times, We, the class of 1927, dedicate this Tiger. 1 9 2 7 Eight The Tlqer r Qfyiwww l 9 2 7 Nine Q TIIC Tlqerfafww CDivisions Book I F5718 School Book II Athletics Book IH Activities f l 9 2 7 Ten The er q3oo7c I CG71e School 1 92 7 Eleven 41 . .1 xv, .- .

He raised the standards of the High School in 1913 to make it a member of the North Central Association of Second- ary Schools and Colleges of which Organization we have been a continuous member since. He is well liked and is considerate of all. Mr. Krumsiek Through the untiring efforts of our principal the Edwardsville High School has made steady strides of advancement 'along every line, his work being accredited by the state inspectors as among the most efficient in the state. The students have learned to appreciate his methods of straight for- ward dealings and his spirit of fair play has always been evident. 1 9 2 7 Ei gh teen err , DARRELL BLGDGET Assistant Principal Athletics Shurtleff College, Ph.B.

They tried hazing them, razzing them, and then decided that after all, greenuess, like beauty, is only skin deep. Or maybe it was only the refiection from the walls. The Class spent their first year in getting used to the High School and all the new teachers, and in learning the unwritten law of the classes. 1 9 2 7 Thirty-Six Tlqer "In their Sophomore year, they were a great deal more brilliant, and already adepts at the art of saying 'prepared' in a class and bearing out the assertion with only five minutes' preparation. They made the orchestra a howling success, and furnished some good raw material for the basketball and football teams. They dug up two good basketball players, each with the peculiar talent of seeming to be in two places at once, because, you see, they were twins."

"The Senior rings looked twice their price, and at a short distance, or any kind of distance you want, the girls' rings looked like huge solitaires. "The Tiger Staff chosen by the class was sure to give the time-honored Bengal a 'run for its money'. The Class officers were good ones too, including one of the Favored Five with un-bobbed hair.

The End. Q:9"QJi'a 192 7 Thirty-Seven The CI' Class Will We, the class of 1927 of the Edwardsville High School, situated in the county of Madison, the state of Illinois, in realization of the fact that we are about to walk through the valley of the shadow of life, declare this to be our last will and testament. We take occasion, here, to say that no wills hereto- fore effected by us are valid. We believe we are, in all respects, whatever, much more brilliant than foregoing classes and declare ourselves absolutely sane and of positively charged mental powers. Here we are, and leaving behind us our most valuable and cherished pos- sessions, we hope to remain in the memories of our younger more unfortunate brothers and sisters, and we will die in peace since we have the assurance that they will carefully guard the things justly falling to them by succession. We testify to the following bequeathals: 1. Rebecca Allen leaves the ripple of her mirth for the outside drinking fountain to express. 2. Rex Monroe leaves his wise cracks tif they may be so calledj to the nut cracker, i.e., the principal. 3. Henry Armstrong leaves his heart breaking ca1'eer to be carried on by his lovely little sister, Suzanne. 4. Beulah Bold leaves her flute-like warble to the E. H. S. Hall of Fame. 5. Emily Berner leaves her broad smile and giggle to Frank Perkaus. 6. Elsie Berman reluctantly allows Mildred Balke to continue the gossip. 7, Clem and Clyde, the Senior's Pride, bequeath their hard earned trophies to the trophy cabinet. 8. Monsieur Gordon Burroughs leaves his Ritzy manners to Gottlieb Schumacker. 9. Lauretta Gerne bequeaths her novel "High School Romances" to the E. H. magnificent library. 10. Mary Eaton leaves her shallow coquetry and vamping to Ruth Whiteside. 11. Roy Fruit leaves Georgetta W0l'Ll6H to the tender mercies of Jack Darr and his Ford. 12. Charles Erspamer leaves his heart with Miss Martin, or at least she keeps it. 13. Hedwig Fahrig bequeaths her surplus weight to Alice Bast, the nymph. 14. Paul Hess leaves his altitude at Emmett Kane ls disposal, and returns his hypotenuse to the Trig Book. 15. Bernard Scalan leaves the extremity of his former name to the stu- dent body as a tongue twister. 16. Charles Wentz leaves that unearthly Qperhaps celestialj chuckle for gurglej to Marian Mead. 17. Earle Rant leaves many broken hearts and takes much love with him, and that's veritable. 1 9 2 7 Thirty-Eight The erQL W --i"'1 Mosxze-rms SCALLY A EN PPY 1 9 2 'l'lli1'iy-Nillv ...ww The GI' unior Class Roll President - - Robert Mindrup Vice-President - - - Margaret Moorman Secretary-Treasurer - - Georgetta Worden Ahrens, Edward Ahrens, Mildred Arndt, Helen Aubrecht, Joseph Baird, Margaret Baird, Marvin Balke, Mildred Ballweg, Mary Bauer, Bernice Berleman, Leonard Binney, Meredith Birmingham, Norma Blixen, Mabel Buhrman, Gilbert Cassens, Eldor Chambers, Lyle Grossman, Thomas DeCota, Thomas Doeblin, Kenneth Eardley, Willard Eaton, Abigail Ann Elik, Josephine Fink, Leo Fowler, Melba Fresen, Edward Frey, Irma Geers, Alvina Gerfen, Wilma Gerhardt, Charles Gerteis, Janet Glass, LaVerne Gedeking, Melvin Grace, James Grebel, Joseph Hartung, Adolph Hellrung, Cecelia Henry, Marguerite Henry, Iola Henshaw, Verna Hildenstein, Melvin Hill, Ruth Jacobs, Eithel Jacobs, Laura Johnson, Joseph Johnson, Robert 9 2 7 Forty unior Class Roll Kane, Emmett Mack, Sol Marburger, Emil Marks, Arlyn Mayer, Phoebe McAllister, Josephine McLean, Donald Mead, Marian Me5er, George Morgan, Helen Motz, Angeline Nash, Marion Nicolussi, Rose Otto, Florence Phelan, Mildred Rasplica, Arna Rogers, James Rosenthal, Lonita Sager, Hadley Schaefer, William Schaefer, Jessie Shaffer, Ruth Siegel, Arthur Sooy, Edward Spilman, Charles Spindler, Ruth Stahlhut, Esther Stegemeier, Edward Stieren, Gertrude Streif, Clarence Wagner, Harold Walter, Herman Werre, Adolph Whiteside, Ruth Wiley, Nolan Wilharm, Willis Williamson, Robert Wisher, Hugh Nw 9 2 7 Forty-One eFwm.. The unior Class History It was a gray, cloudy day. The threatening weather had kept me indoors. I had been wandering aimlessly seeking some sort of diversion when the ring of the bell brought me to the front door. There stood my favorite aunt. I do not know whether her red hair or her jovial, fun-seeking nature influenced me in this decision, but she had always been my favorite aunt. I knew by the twinkle in her eyes she had something planned. "Guess what Ilve come over here for! We're going rummaging in the attic." "OhI" I said, and started on a run for the attic stairs. When we came to the dusty, cobwebby old attic we stood panting breath- lessly before vigorously attacking the trunks and chests. I thrust my hand into a peculiar looking box and felt a book. Drawing it out, I asked my aunt what it was. She gave it a look and exclaimed, "Why my dear, that is my 1927 Tiger! The Tiger was our High School Annual." She seated herself on the edge of a trunk, a dirt smudge on the end of her nose and an atrocious-looking hat at a rakish angle on her head. Seeming to forget me she gazed wistfully out of the window and began to speak. '4We came up in 1924, scared little green Freshies, running around trying to find the elevator to the tenth floor or bothering Mr. Krumsiek to change our Algebra from the second to the ninth period. We were laughable! We all attended the school parties, invariably arriving too early. When the party began we would not join in any of the games but stood around looking on. We passed the year safely and even tried to mock the Seniors the last few months of school. "Our Sophomore year was quite different. We were a little surer of our- selves. At parties our pep could not be beaten. Beside being such social lions, we were progressing in other ways. Under the supervision of Miss Gewe we published a paper called the 'Tattle Talei. It meant work, but we stuck to it. In athletics our boys always excelled. They always tried to keep in training, the star athlete keeping in trim by his nightly walks on a certain street! "Our Junior year was a glorious year. We considered ourselves far above the Sophomores and Freshmen and even began to assume the dignity and infallibility of the Seniors. Our Junior party was one of the best given. Nevertheless these va1'ious activities did not keep our names from the honor roll. We belonged to all sorts of clubs and associations. We were a very happy bunch. "In regard to our Senior year--.H Just then my mother called us down for tea. My aunt walked slowly down, reluctant to leave old memories. -,Mildred Phelan, '28, 1 9 2 7 Forty-Two The Tlqer v faffcyw-Q 1 9 2 7 Forty-Thrce as'Mwm The Sophomore Class Roll President - - - Ralph Schneider ,s Vice-President - Muriel Schmollinger Secretary-Treasurer - Dale Schneider Appogast, Ruth Ax, Helen Baird, Marie Bast, Alice Becker, Mary Berleman, Willard Berthoux, Beatrice Betzold, Ruth Borman, Mildred Brockmeier, Donald Brase, Lydia Brunworth, Helen Burroughs, Josephine Caldwell, Amos Cassens, Arnold Chairney, Frances Coukoulis, Pana Cunningham, Robert Damkey, Gladys Davidson, Roscoe Dude, LeRoy Eaton, Henry King Eberhardt, Paul Erspamer, Mary Faust, Edna Feldman, Leola Fiegenbaum, Laura Forshaw, Robert Foster, Roy Gehring, Esther Gerteis, Florence Gerteis, Frances Giese, Ruth Guller, Walter: Hanser, Mary Laurene Harris, LaRue Heidinger, Robert Herder, Lloyd Keele, Gertrude Keshner, Charles Keshner, Frances Knecht, Eugene Kriege, Olin Kuethe, Helen Lee, Bernice Loewen, LeRoy Long, Marion 1 9 2 7 Forty-Four Tiqer, Sophoznore Class Macha, Eleanor McCormick, Robert Mc-Cune, Edna Miller Miller Moore Moore, Mueri, Lucille Max Edna Virginia Leona Nash, Murrell Ortgier, Lucille Perkaus, Frank Phelan, James Reeves, Beulah Reilly, Evans Richards, Ben Rohrkaste, Robert Russell, Ruth Schafer, Daniel Schneider, Ruth Schumacker, Gottlieb Seaton, Glen Shaw, Ruth Shaffer, John Shupack, Milton Sievers, Arthur Smolek, Marion Smoltz, William Snajdr, Edward Sparks, Harold Roll Spilman, Robert Spitze, Roland Spitze, Alice Staaf, Arnold Sullivan, Loretta.

H. S. on September 1, 1926. We were neither, timid nor brazen but we tried Cand we think we suc- ceededj in striking the happy medium. Perhaps Latin and Algebra suffered the first few days, but then 110 one is perfect. After those few days, however, we settled down to work and showed our teachers what we could do. We were all just waiting for a chance to show everyone what we could do Cthough only Freshiesj, when the four one-act class plays were announced. Thanks to Miss Martin is coaching, and her choice of a splendid, hard-working cast, we took the prize, a picture, "A Distinguished Member of the Humane Society," which hangs on the wall of the third floor corridor near 301. This was the first mile stone on our journey along the road to Knowledge and Fame. We did not emerge from the "War of Semester Exams" without some scars of battle and several casualties. However, we withstood that attack very well in comparison with the complete routes meted out to some of the other fighting u11its which make up the great army of E. H. S. In February the 'fPreps" came to swell our ranks. We must admit that our attitude towards them was somewhat patronizing, since to us veterans HD they seemed quite green Csince this is the new H. S. they could not say it was merely the reflection from the wallsj. But that feeling soon Wore off and we accepted them as fellow members of the glorious old Hthirtiethn. Our loyalty to the basketball and football teams was unquestioned and we tried to be good sports Cneedless to say our support of the tennis and track teams will be equalj. We came to fight for recognition and to give the best we have and so far, we have succeeded. The class as a whole is a fine one and we expect big things of it. So when you are listing organizations which do big things don 't forget the class of 1930. -Martha Sebastian, '30. 1 9 2 7 .

Four years of colorful existence-the scarlet, symbolistic of the ardor, eagerness, and ambition truly representative of our athletic events, the jade and saffron of pleasant friendships and happy hours-like the green and yel- low of a laughing plot of marigolds, the blue, clear and dazzling, clean-cut, as it were, the blueness of honest eyes, and honest fair lives, and the black, the black of little disappointments and failures, which serves only to intensify and emphasize the sheen and ripple of the reds, greens, and yellows. And the gold, the gold and silver of lofty aspiration, of hopes-yet to be fulfilled- like the full golden moon and silver stars out of reach. Our tapestry-our high school years.

OCTOBER 2 ......V............. 8-0 Our initial game with the Staunton huskies, played in our own back yard, did not add much to the credit of either team. On the muddy field, both teams played a slow defensive game, marked with many fumbles. Although on several occasions we suc- ceeded in approaching within scoring distance, an Edwardsville safety was the only score until a Stauntonite intercepted a last minute pass and crossed our goal unopposed, for the only touchdown of the day, leaving the score 8-0. LITCHFIELD ....,...,......... THERE ............,.,... OCTOBER 9 .,.,...........,.. 9-0 Following a week of diligent practice the High School Football team travelled to Litchfield for their first victory. Showing considerable improvement the team out-fought and out-played their heavier opponents. In the first quarter, Young crossed the opposing goal, with the aid of good inter- ference on the part of Bothman and Heidinger. A place kick completed the score 9-0. WOOD RIVER ..,..,.,..,..... THERE ..,............. OCTOBER A15 ...,,........... 28-0 After the non-conference victory at Litchiield we opened our Conference season with the Wood River game at Wood River where our team easily outplayed their heavier opponents, Touchdowns were scored by Young and Captain Bothrnan. The playing of the men was exceptional, especially that of Clem Bothman and Fiegenbaum. In the second half Coach used 26 different players who gained experience. The game ended with the score 28-0 in our favor. I 1927 Fifty-Nine Tiqera l , , , BELLEVILLE .......,,....,.A HERE ..........,.....,. OCTOBER 22 .,................ 21-9 Mindful of the defeat suffered last year at the hands of Belleville, the local warriors entered this game in a revengeful mood. Scored on and outplayed during the first quar- ter, the team redeemed themselves by a last minute rally in the second, which left the score 9-7, still our opponent's favor. In the second half an overwhelming fighting spirit generated by Young and Clem brought us touchdown after touchdown, so that when the team emerged from the mud and water the score remained 21-9 in our favor. ALTON ..............,....... HERE ,...........,,,,.,.. OCTOBER 30 ,,..,......,,,....., ..13-0' One day during the rainy season we met the fast Alton team on our own field. Young retained the upper hand in the punting duel the first half. The second half started with a blocked Alton punt with which Fiegenbaum secured a touchdown. Our team soon pounded its way over for another touchdown and left the score 13-0. Erspamer, our left end, was the outstanding player in this game. JERSEYVILLE ..........,...,.

At the half the "seconds" were sent in who immediately aided Berleman feature a 60 yard for a touch- down. In the final moments the opposing gridmen scored a touchdown leaving the score 32-6.

NOVEMBER 11 ,.....,.,..,.. 7-O All previous games and victories paled into insignificance when on Armistice Day the Blodget men went to Collinsville to represent the school in its most important game. Early in the first quarter the great crowd of supporters saw our determined spirit coupled with thorough football go crashing for tl1e one and only touchdown of the day. Fiegenbaum's brilliant tackling and Captain Hothman's injuries were typical of the dcggedness with which our "Tigers" fought. One of the hardest contests of theirlives was fought by those twenty-two players on that memorable field. GRANITE ........,,.,.... THERE .,,.....,..,...... NOVEMBER 18 .,,,.,,,,,........ 19-0 The lligh School team defended their conference standing on Granite's Wind-swept snow-strewn field. Trick plays had no effect on our "Bengals" who rapidly scored several touchdowns. Youngfs fine runs and Heidinger's line plunges featured the game, which was generally dull a11d uninteresting, due to the bad condition of the field. The second team soon replaced the first and when the game ended the score was 19-0. EAST ST. LOUIS .............. HERE .............. NOVEMBER 25 ,............. 12-O The football teams of Edwardsville and East St. Louis clashed on the local field to decide conference supremacy. Players on both teams playing their last game for their Alma Maters expended their best in a heart-breaking contest. On the worst of muddiest fields the game became a struggle in which the luckiest team wo11. East Side gained a touchdown on a cleverly masked pass in the first, quarter. Facing this and other disadvantages our team slowly crumpled until a bad pass from center gave our op- ponents the deciding touchdown. l I . rf V s- K if H SQJQH I 9 2 7?-2HQ1'se-Lt Sixtygtjue Summary We have endeavored to do justice to all in the previous Writeups. We have mentioned several players who at various times featured or stood out conspicuously. Nevertheless these could never have won any games alone without the consistent co-operation of the remaining men. Among these Hre- liables" Lamkin, Snadjr and Fink stand out foremost, but Gerhardt and Wiley should not be forgotten. Much credit is due to the entire "scrub" squad who helped whip the team in shape. Among the Senior members of the Scrub, Duffy, Tittle and Fruit narrowly missed gaining their letters. Of the underclassmen, Baird, William- son, Reilly, and Sager are promising prospects. These are merely a few of the group that toiled daily to train our team into fighting order. Afterworci Departing from custom this year we have omitted individual write-ups in the sport section. The reason for this is obvious. To the ability of some, fine phrases and colorful adjectives could not do justice, and to that of others they would be exaggerated. So in order to avoid incongruities of this sort We merely wish to say that the men of the teams of i26-'27 deserve an equal por- tion of credit. Each man attained his standing only because of the co-opera- tion of the rest of the team. Each knows his true value, whether high or other- wise-that should be sufficient. On the team taken as a whole, there were no individual stars, all worked for the common good and were equally good. A Word from the Captain The football team of Edwardsville High School has gone through another season adding more laurels to its credit. From the outset, the team had been handicapped by the loss of much varsity ma- terial of last year. The training of raw material to fill the vacant positions was a diffi- cult problem indeed. The weather man went against. us and created another problem. He managed to keep the iield in such condition that only one game of nine was played on a thoroughly dry field. These conditions affected certain games to the extent of even changing the tide of battle from the best team to the luckiest. Taking all these points into consideration, who can dispute that the team of '26 had not been successful? Out of its total of nine games the team won seven and lost two, one of which was a non-Conference match. It tied for first place with Collinsville after having beaten them in a battle royal. And what's more and best it won or lost all of its games while playing straight clean football! -Captain Bothman. 1 9 2 7 I Sixty-Two I X7 ' ,f J '99 J 2,-n .f 'M V N Q, P 'f if 3 1 1-J 3. sv cwvseiklnmlill 1 M L The er Captain Younsj Center Captaining the team for his second year HBert" came through with fly- ing colors.

Working under several disadvantages the team did not get a good start until it was too late. Our gym, which is inadequate and poorly equipped was the greatest of our drawbacks. The loss of our veteran guards was another severe blow to our champion- ship hopes. But the greatest of our handicaps this year was non-support of the fans. Only a small percentage of the school turned out to see the team win or lose. This indifference affected the morale of the team and contributed to several of our defeats. So while we are building next year's championship team, let's see if you fans cannot decide to give it your presence and unlimited support. -Captain Young. 1 9 2 7 Sixty-Four mx, ,fi -1-1 ' Q , A '- . we Sixty-Fivo ae'Qfsaf T.l'l3 Tiqef Basketball Review DECEMBER 10 .,...,...........,...,........ MT. OLIVE ....,,.........,....,,,,...... HERE' Our first game with Mt. Olive sadly showed our lack of experience. The team played its best, nevertheless the opposing quintet easily gained and held the advantage. At the end of the game the score stood 20-5 in favor of our more versatile opponents. DECEMBER 14 .,,...........,............... STAUNTON ,,..l...,.,..,................ HERE The week following the Mt. Olive defeat was spent in intensive training for the team. Its passing, dribbling and shooting showed considerable mprovement since the fray with Mt. Olive. This game was uneventful and slow but valuable for practice purposes. Although the score was close, we won 10-9. DECEMBER 17 ........................ EAST ST. LOUIS ........... 1 ............ HERE On December 17 we met our Nemesis of the football season on our own basketball floor. The East Side team showed its ability to extend its conquests in all fields by out- playing and out-scoring the locals in a hard-fought contest. Although eager and willing, our men were nervous and missed many passes. In spite of this, their defense was unusually good and succeeded in holding East Side to a 12-8 score. Kane was our high point man. DECEMBER 30 ................................ ALUMNI ................................ HERE The "gym" was filled with eager supporters to see the battle between the "old timers" and the regulars. The fast, interesting game provided plenty of thrills. Although "the stars of another day" led consistently, the team kept their pace and with Kane's fine shots constantly tied the score. In the last lapse of the game, the score being tied, Clyde Bothman and Ahrens both scored completing the score and winning the game, 16-20. JANUARY 7 .................................... ALTON .................................... HERE The basketball fans of the vicinity were given a generous treat when the Alton quintet clashed with the Edwardsville five on the local floor. Although we led the first quarter, the Altonites gained the lead at the half. This they held throughout the game, which was fast and exciting. The final moment saw Alton in a scant lead until it was broken up by the invincible combination of Berleman, Bert and Kane. The score was 15-14 in our favor when the shot sounded. JANUARY 11 ............................ BELLEVILLE ............................ THERE The team traveled to Belleville for its first out-of-town game, where an easy victory awaited them. The game dragged along slowly to the end when Belleville almost tied the score. At the last minute Kane slipped in a difficult one making the score 10-13 and our victory. 1 9 2 7 Slxty-Six The Tlqef JANUARY 14 ..........,................. WOOD RIVER ......................v..... HERE It seemed like "the old days" when the Edwardsville quintet commenced to drop the ball through the loops from the tirst whistle in this Wood River game. With an immense lead in our favor, our reserves went in. The game closed-our victory 9-22-Captain Young having 10 points to his credit. JANUARY 21 ..,.................,.,... COLLINSVILLE .......................... THERE After our Wood River victory, hopes ran high for our chances in the Collinsville contest. The Kahoks started off brilliantly, but the "Bengals" gradually crept up. Col- linsville led in the scoring which remained constant until the fourth quarter. Here the E. H. S. defense cracked and Collinsville was able to raise the score to 21-11 ltheir favorl before the final whistle. JANUARY 22 .....,,..................... JERSEYVILLE ............,............... HERE In a game similar to that at Wood River the High School boys gained the advantage from the onset and were able to keep it. The opposing "Orange and Blacks" could not break through our strong defense and were kept down to a 20-6 score. Young's scoring featured the game. JANUARY 28 ..,..................,.... GRANITE CITY .......................... THERE A In an exciting whirl-wind game our Tigers fell prey to the Granite City "Wild Cats." The game was a thorough see-saw from the first quarter to the last gun. Young led in points but Kane and Ahrens amply demonstrated their ability. With the score tied Granite made their winning basket in an over-time period, making the score 22-20. JANUARY 29 ......,..................... GREENVILLE ............................ HERE With the Bothman Twins playing their last game in High School, Edwardsville played Greenville in a slow but interesting game. The strain of the Granite City game contributed to our defeat. In spite of the odds, Young and Ahrens were able to score a number of points. We lost 20-8. FEBRUARY 1 ..,..................... EAST ST. LOUIS .............,......,.,. THERE Meeting the East Side team in their second game, E. H. S. had hopes of a victory. In spite of our delayed offense East Side secured and kept a strong lead. The game was strictly theirs until the gun stopped the score at 17-4. FEBRUARY 5 .,........,....................... ALTON .................,........,,,,.,,, THERE Alton met our warriors in grand style, scoring six points over their heads. Young and Ahrens scored in time to end the quarter. The lead continuously changed hands until Young and Ahrens scored in the final moments to give us a close victory 22-23. 1 9 27 Sixty-Seven The Tlqer FEBRUARY 8 ..,.........,.............,. BELLEVILLE ...........,................ HERE, Belleville and Edwardsville met on the local floor to add another victory to our credit. E. H. S. led throughout the first three quarters and were able to use their delayed offense effectively in the last. The game ended in our favor 11-15. FEBRUARY 11 ...l......,,,,...,..,...., WOOD RIVER ,,,,.....,.....,,,...... ..THERE Although picked to win, Edwardsville's scoring the first three quarters did not bear out the "dope". Young and Ahrens succeeded in tying the score until the end of the game. In the over-time period Ahrens scored the winning basket for us. The score was 18-16. FEBRUARY 25 .....,.................... COLLINSVILLE .......................,.. HERE In a hard-fought but losing fight the locals dropped their second game to Collinsville. Bert and Kane played their usual game but were not able to prevail against the Kahoks' strong defense. Collinsville played a fine game and won with a score of 23-7. FEBRUARY 26 ........................ JERSEYVILLE ............ ............ T HERE The Blodget men encountered Jerseyville for the second time this year. Unfortun- ately our team could not get together and many lucky breaks fell to the opposing team who played a faster and more brilliant game. In spite of our defeat, Young and Ahrens played their usual game and contributed their share to the 26-19 score. MARCH 1 ................................ GRANITE CITY ................................ HERE In a smooth but easy game the "Bengals" met and defeated the Granite quintet by a score of 12-21. Young, Ahrens and Berleman contributed greatly to our score with some fine shots. MADISON COUNTY TOURNAMENT Drawing for the Madison County Tournament E. H. S. onlv succeeded in drawing Collinsville, twice our victor previously, for their opponents. Picked as possible winners the Kahoks justified the choice. The team held their larger and more adept opponents for almost a quarter until Collinsville suddenly forged ahead. Because of the unbalanced score of 32-9 the game was slow and uninteresting. DISTRICT TOURNAM ENT Jerseyville found us for the Iirst game of the District Tournament. Our boys got an excellent start and were able to keep it without much difficulty. The game was fast and our Tigers increased their score continuously until Young went out on fouls. Jersey- ville crept up but our victory was soon assured by the gun. The final score was 26-19. In spite of our previous victory Alton eliminated us in the afternoon session. We lost the slow dragging game with the score of 13-9. 1 9 2 7 Sixty-Eight The el' Summary How little we are capable of applauding the virtues of our basketball men after seeing the fans do so. But we do hope that the mention of a few inci- dents will aid the followers of the team of'26-'27 remember the rest. Who could forget Captain Young's versatile playing who truly led his team into action. His numerous field-goals are his credentials. Then Kane the high point star of many games. The seeming grace and ease of his shots is yet to be excelled. This brings us to Ahrens who brought the team out of many a hole. Then to Berleman whose numerous wonder-shots hold us dazed yet. The Bothman twins need no mention, past that of name, for their playing of three years is that of a pair of perfectly trained veterans who did not forget the basket. Gerhardt and Cassens who took the place vacated by the Both- mans certainly raised themselves high in our estimation by their super-guard- ing in many a game. Finally Lamkin and Tittle, our Senior lettermen who ably demonstrated more than passing ability on more than one occasion, could be counted on whenever a sure and steady man was required. Qther Sports Tennis In the development of the new grounds the Board of Education took care that a fine set of tennis courts should be included. This fact fit in very nicely when the Conference accepted Tennis as a Major Sport and authorized inter- scholastic competition. Although Edwardsville High School has previously had Tennis meets with other schools, the real foundation may be said to have started last spring. The doubles team played 7 matches but was too new and inexperienced to overcome any of their opponents. ln singles we succeeded in taking a match but this affected our standing but little. The fact of importance is that with the material now in school E. H. S. can hope to develop Championship Tennis teams in the near future. . 1 9 2 7 Sixty-Nine The CI' 5.- rf . 5: , t-3' Q. L Track 1926 GRANITE CITY RELAY CARNIVAL April 17 The first meet-of the season in which E. H. S. took part, was held at Granite City. The local team had practiced hard and certainly showed results. The distance medley team took third place in its eventg the sprint relay team took second in thc 4-10 relayg and the sprint medley relay team took first place in the Conference sprint-medley race. A small cup was won by winning the Conference medley. This is the first trophy E. H. S. has received in track for tifteen years. The Carnival was won by Hillsboro with lienld second and Edwardsville third by a total of 18 points. QUADRANGULAR MEET Wood River-Granite-Alton-E. H. S. April 24 The second meet was held at Wood River. The competition was keen in all events but E. H. S. came out on top. After everything had been run off except the relay E. H. S. was 2 3-5 points ahead of Woocl River. Our relay team won the event easily and E. H. S. took the meet and gained another cup about 10 inches in height. MCKENDREE INTERSCHOLASTIC May 1 Each year E. H. S. has been sending about two or three track men to Mc- Kendree to compete in some event. This year however practically the whole team was taken. Captain Young was the only one who was able to score. He took second place i11 the 440 yard run. Benld won the meet. 1 9 2 7 Seventy . The Tlqer SOUTHWESTERN ILLINOIS DISTRICT MEET For the first time, Edwardsville sent a team to the District Meet. E. II. S. had high hope of winning but luck stood against us. The relay team tied for fourth place and Buckley took sixth place in the mile run. Hillsboro won the Meet which entitled them to go to the State Meet on May 15th. DUAL MEET E. H. S. and Wood River May 15 This meet was scheduled to be a triangular meet, but Jerseyville dropped out so it became a nip and tuck affair between E. H. S. and Wood River. The E. H. S. warriors followed Captain Young's good examples and won the Meet by a score of 60 1-2 to 50 1-2. Captain Young was high point man winning four firsts and tying for third in another. Gerhardt was tied for second honors with Hooper of Wood River, each having 10 points. CONFERENCE MEET May 22 R. Qullrfinal Traek.Meet of the season was the Conference Meet at Wood iver he competition was keen and the result was in doubt for a long time. F East St. Louis finally won the Meet but not without stiff competition from adwardsville. Young, our captain was the high point man of the da ith ' 7 f y W a total of 15 points. The E. H. S. Track stars rolled up a total of 26 points to East S1de's 40. Sulnmary The Track Season of 1926 was the most successful one we have ever had in the Edwardsville High School. This is unusual because of the cramped facil- ities and lack of equipment. Nevertheless Track is 11ow rated equally with Football and Basketball as a major sport and is gradually gaining in its amount of supporters. Young, the best and most versatile runner that E. H. S. ever had certainly has contributed much towards the success of our school on the cinder path. Gerhardt, another star of the past year, is no laggard on the distance runs by any means and shows even greater promise for the future. Buckley, Macha, and Ax were other men who were instrumental in the acquiring of trophies. And above all, the relay team, the best we've ever had deserves very much credit. Heidingcr, Erspamer, and Ochs were all hard working runners who at all times gave their best. The number of lettermen with Bert Young at their head and the develop- ment of the new Track promises well for the season 1927. 1 9 2 Seventy-One The Tlqer Minor Sports Baseball 1926 Although baseball is our national sport it is classed as a Minor Sport at our Iligh School. This is probably due to the shortness of the season which terminates with the end of school. At the call for candidates, a goodly num- ber responded of which Coach was able to shape a fairly good squad built arou11d the seven lettermen. The team played seven games of which it won two and lost tive. GRANITE The team lost their first game to Granite by a score of 5-2 mainly because of inexpcrienee. WOOD RIVER We next met Wood River and came ot? second best to the tune of 10-5. They gained seven of their runs in the first inning. EAST ST. LOUIS E. H. S. again fell victim, this time to the powerful "East Sidersf' After the rampage the score was 16-7. COLLINSVILLE Our losing streak broke with a glorious victory over tlollinsville. Our two rims gotten in the first inning were sutficient to beat the rival Kahoks. The score was 1-2. O'FALLON O'Fallon was next on our schedule and proved to be a victory. Although quite close, the game went to the Tigers with a score of 1-3. MASCOUTAH ln attempting to repeat their previous victories, the Bengals fell prey to the Maseoutah nine who gleefully smashed out a 8-6 victory. BELLEVILLE Both teams went on a rampage when the E. H. S. team clashed with the ilielleville representation. The scoring was high but we lost, 12-11. 1 9 2 7 Seventy-Two The Tlqer BOOYCHI G4ctivities 1 9 2 7 Seventy-Three .,, , I ,I X ,. , . ,, -, X . :N in :l.,!:.!., ,Inman M 1 3 , ,.k -5 3, 21. -4-f Z - i . e - - 4, 1 .

Most of the attendants were in costume and the prizes that were given were certainly merited. We had no idea our teachers and school-fellows could deceive us so thoroughly. The refreshments served, fitted the occasion and what's more they were ample. But who could eat in such an environment-for the decorating committee surely had done their work splendidly. After the awarding of prizes a few males and the majority of females indulged in the art of terpisehore with music by a "home-made" orchestra, who certainly deserved much credit for their splendid rendition. CLASS PLAYS Each of the four classes in Iligh School presented a one-act play at the Junior High School auditorium on the evening of November 2, for the dual benefit of tl1e Athletic Association and the Band. A very good performance- "The Obstinate Family"-was given by the Juniors. This was followed by "This Way Outf' by the Sophomores. Needless to say it did not deserve the name at all. The Seniors in all their dignity and talent next presented "The Trysting Place," in an excellent and captivating manner. hast, but not least, the Freshmen carried off the honor with "The Heart of Pierette" in a very clever a11d successful bit of acting. FOOTBALL BANQU ET The Annual Football Banquet was held December 22 at the New Iligh School under the supervision of Miss Helfron and the Cooking Class. Several members of the Faculty and the lioard of Education made interesting talks, on various subjects concerning Athletics. The repast was excellent and served in a very becoming manner. All those present professed to have had a very enjoyable time and extended a vote of thanks to the hostesses. After the dinner, there was a short ceremony during which the letters were awarded by Mr. Blodget. A short complimentary talk was made with each award. "TH E GYPSY ROVER" The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Bridges gave a splendid oper- etta entitled "The Gypsy Rover" on lleeember 9, at the Junior Iligh School Auditorium. 1927' . var ' Eighty-One The well-chosen cast of characters, supported by the good work of several choruses, succeeded in achieving a real triumph. Their interpretation and reproduction of the theme of the plot made the operetta thoroughly interesting and amusing. Henry Armstrong as the leading characterand Adeline Kriege as heroine certainly justified their choice. SENIOR PARTY Acting on the request of many of its members, the Senior Class treated itself to a party all its own, late in the month of November. The feature for the evening was an automobile carnival in which the group designating them- selves as "Buicks', won. A chosen few from each' group engaged in a chewing gum "pull" while the rest of us stood around and waited for our mouths to stop watering. After appropriate refreshments Hcompulsoryn dancing was adopted. The boys hope the girls enjoycd it as well as they did! JUNIOR PARTY The Junior class yielded to the general agitation and gave itself a treat in form of a party at the gym on the night of January 17. All present agreed in saying that the party was the best given by the Juniors for a long time in spite of its unusually small attendance. After the very appetizing refresh- ments, dancing took its place as the main feature of the evening. SOPHOMORE-FRESH MAN PARTY On the special invitation of the Sophomores, the Freshmen became their guests at a Washingtoii party on the evening of February 23. Amusing games and contests of various sorts took place i11 which the faculty were prominent among the winners. Following these amusements came the Virginia Reel-the feature of the evening. Everyone participated and enjoyed himself to the greatest extent. After the refreshments, there was dancing in which many took part until the time set for leaving. SENIOR PARTY After the huge success of their previous party, the Seniors resolved to invite themselves to another evening of fun and amusement. The committee provided for the feature of the evening a game called "Senior" which was equally absorbing and appropriate. Forgetting their dignity and demeanor the faculty joined the truant Seniors in what appeared to be a whooping con- test, but was o11ly the common method of procedure. Qlsfwwa l 9 2 7 Eighty-Two The CI' Following the completion of the game innovating and yet substantial re- freshments appeared. The class soon resolved itself into a multitude of trip- pers of the fantastic toe Cbeginners exceptedj in a manner to prove that in spite of all its draw-backs the last year in high school is the best. The party was held on the evening of March 19. ART EXHIBIT Following the precedent established in other years, an Art Exhibit was held at the High School during the evenings of March 2-3-4. The Student Body co-operated with the Faculty in selling tickets and backing the venture. To this, more than anything else, is due the success of the Exhibit. The benefits will be used to secure the badly needed pictures for our High School Walls. - The success was greatly enhanced by the fact that certain prominent citizens, firms and High School organizations purchased and donated to the School a multitude of pictures. The School wishes to extend its appreciation to all of these and assure them of its gratitude. TEACH ERS' PARTY The E. H. S. teachers entertained all the Junior High teachers on St. Patrick's eve at the New High School. There were many novelties during the program consisting of guessing contests, lock step races and other interesting features. Bridge, Buneo and Five Hundred furnished amusement for a greater part of the evening. The refreshments were extraordinarily delicious and were enjoyed by all. The losers of the lockstep, adorned in green, served the winners also appropri- ately gowned. The teachers all united in saying that the party was the greatest success of the kind ever attempted in the history of our High School. ALL GIRLS' PARTY The annual Girls' Party was given at the Junior High School gym the evening of March 25. Various games and contests entertained those present throughout the evening. "The Virginia Reel" occupied the position of prominence until the presentation of "The Gathering of the Nuts." This play was staged under the direction of Mary Eaton, and was intensely enjoyed by all. Eighty-Three 1927 Dancing furnished amusement for the remainder of the evening. Suffi- cient to say, the refreshments were excellent and contributed much toward the party 's success. All present were unanimous in accrediting the party as the Hbest ever." BASKETBALL PARTY Instead of the usual banquet given this year exclusively for the lettermen, the school decided to have a whole school affair. The party was held on Thursday evening, March 31. In spite of the downpour of rain, a very large number attended and enjoyed themselves to the greatest extent. A miniature basketball tournament was carried out to the immense amusement of all entered. The basketball letters were awarded to the lettermen while the cook- i11g class made a special award of a large slice of cake. Dancing featured the rest of the evening which .was confessed to be one of the best ever. HOCKEY Girls' athletics have again resumed their former position among school activities with the adoption of hockey. Under the supervision of Miss Fruit the girls have trained to develop a team which may in the future take its place among the varsity teams of E. H. S. In spite of the time and effort spent the girls enjoyed themselves very much and received the benefit of the excellent training. For practice, three teams were organized. VOLLEY BALL This year for the first time the High School has had a Girls' Volley Ball Team. Under the able direction of Miss Swanson the girls have taken a great interest in the sport and devoted much of their time to it. The team which is composed mostly of Freshmen and Sophomores practiced hard last fall and they have again resumed their practice this spring. As a result a very promis- ing team for the next year is anticipated. The Hustlers and The Stars were teams organized. TATTLE TALE The Tattle Tale has completed its second successful year of publication under the guidance of the members of the Junior Class. The paper has filled a need long apparent, in regard to a publication that would record the activ- ities in school as they occurred. There is no doubt as to its practical value as a school paper, for it tends to bridge the long gaps between the issues of the Tiger. The permanency of the Journal is practically assured and we hope that it may be able to extend its circulation and frequency, in the near future. 9 2 7 Eighty-Foul' The Tlqef The success of the monthly is due to the efforts of the editors, Miss Gewe, the Faculty Advisor, and the entire Junior Class who contributed and devoted themselves to its publication. ' DEBATING CLUB The Debating Club is an altogether new activity among High School or- ganizations. lt was formed under the direction of Miss Macnair who has assumed the responsibilities as coach. The Club has several outside meets under consideration, as the Tiger goes to press. ln spite of its inexperience the team proved its mettle in the first meet against the Granite City team by winning the negative side and losing the affirmative by a small margin. "STOP 'ri-HEP" ' The Junior Play was given March 28, at the Wildey Theater. lt was a success both financially and dramatically. All the players acted their parts splendidly, but George Meyer, Helen Morgan, Robert Williaiiisoll and Georg- etta Worden were the most outstanding. Needless to say, Miss Stevens and the entire cast deserved all the credit they received. The cast was as follows: Joan Carr Mrs. Carr - Caroline Carr - Madge Carr - Nell - - - William Carr - James Cluney - Mr. Jamison - Dr. Willoughby - Rev.
