MURIEL SULLIVAN, LORETTA WESTERHEIDE, ARTRUDE twenty-fourPUBLIC AUCTION Seniors’ Last Possessions Bang! Going! Any more offers? Bang! Gone! A set of superiority complexes owned by Roscoe Davidson sold to Mary Love. “ Wliooy ! What a crowd!” said the auctioneer as he turned to the seated clerk. “With all these valuable Senior belongings we should have some high bidding.” He mopped his face as he turned to the crowd and smiled benevolently down on the childish faces before him. “Here, I have an excellent bundle of jokes, practically new, owned by Ralph Schneider, and what am I offered?” Off he went into the auctioneer’s beloved string of unintelligible garble. The bidding mounted, for these jokes were well known abotif the High School. Finally the lot went to La Verne Meyer, who was heard to, rcmaVk that he always wanted a good line to use on Katherine. v . A hatchet, the property of Helen Ax, went to Burrell Gilbert, who muttered savagely as lie went for his purchase, “Now let Bill Geers try to put me under the shower.” Then came a large number of unimportant personal belongings— Dale Schneider’s tennis rackets, knocked down to Sammy Strief, Muriel’s collection of “College Humors,” and Ben’s 153 copies of Colliers, which went to Dave Mack. A titter went around the crowd when Jule Blake spent his last cent buying Ruth’s hockey stick and several of her old pencils. James Phelan’s text on Einstein went to Otto Wieneke, who dispelled all thoughts of deep mathematical study by saying that he always wanted a big book to sit on. It’s so hard to see over those desks in 203. Joseph Aubrecht’s pep was snatched up by Philip Bufkin, whose admiration of a northerner’s vigor was well known. Dorothy Kay bought the copyrights of Dan Daily’s “Wood Simp” dance to use in her appearance in the Orpheum Circuit. “I dare say these things will go fast,” remarked the auctioneer to the clerk, as he put up a battered hockey stick and an Emily Post book, TWENTY-FIVElilHIE TilC ICIER the property of Jo Burroughs. And right lie was, for they were snatched up by Arnold Leitner, who had made a special trip in for this occasion. He smilingly ignored the jibes of his classmates as he tenderly took possession of his acquisitions. As he left some wit began humming “Among My Souvenirs.” On went the bang of the gavel, and one by one the possessions of the Seniors were placed on the block, bid up a while and then knocked down to some proud lower classman. Beatrice Berthoux’s typing ability caused the most spirited bidding of the entire afternoon and finally went to Bill Geers. The same wit who had entertained the crowd before (yes, it was “Hass”) yelled, “Now, Dorothy Reiser won’t have to get a decipherer to read those notes.” A sudden flurry followed this. Two hours later a farmer passing by said lie had seen two panting boys pass him ten miles out of town, one about three steps ahead of the other and both headed for parts unknown. After the crowd settled down, the auctioneer disposed of the remaining personal belongings of the Seniors, and announced that the spirit of the entire Senior class would now be auctioned off. Melvin Hubacli, Helen Jensen, and Mary Daily moved to the front and fumbled in their pockets. “What am I bid?” yelled the auctioneer, with a bang of the gavel. punctuating his words “Three hundred dollars!” calmly asserted Melvin with a triumphant look at his two rivals. Helen Jensen tainted, and Mary shrank back into the crowd, cowed with the knowledge that the treasury of the Sophomore class contained hut $5.25. “1 suppose it goes to you, then,” said the auctioneer smilingly, “hut just one question. Where did you get all that money?” Melvin thought a while, and then shook his head. “That would be telling, and I do admire George Washington. But I’ll drop you a hint. hen you have the future head of a brick factory in your class, you can go to the limit.” And that was all lie would say. TWENTY-SIX"lilHIE TilC ER DO YOU REMEMBER? Or did vou know how fumiv we all were as Seniors in ’29? For instance: Dan Dailey liked to drink hot water with sugar and cream in it, his favorite song was “Where the Shy Little Violets Grow,” and he shot off fire crackers at midnight to welcome good old 19 29. Jo Burroughs spent most of her time defending Reno’s athletic ability! Beatrice Berthoux won a typing pin practically every week! Arnold and Artrude were absolutely unaware that there were something over four hundred other students in E. H. S. Aurelia and Cornelia were cousins. White-Wood often appeared in our halls. Marie Baird liked fruit. Roscoe had a mustache and a girl in Springfield. Alma Jensen, Marian Long, and Lucille Miller were letting their hair grow. Ben took Miss Martin to see Thurston. Muriel went swimming on March 31st.—“Oh, no, Mother, it wasn’t cold!” Ruth Shaw had a perfect mania for precious “jewels.” “Red” Nash owned what had been a Ford. Isaac Sharp threw the shot-put out of sight. Dale came in 3 3rd at Carlyle—and henceforth detested lemons. Paul Eberhart pondered over the intricacies of a sleeve valve. Ed. Snajdr was hailed far and near as “Gripy.” Trefoil distinguished himself in the Thrift Almanac. Gottlieb hailed Vivian in a nonchalant manner. Leroy could tell you absolutely anything about Goodyear tires. Florence was Frances’ twin. Frances was Florence's twin. Henry Eaton wore a ponderous frown while contemplating the probability of Nitsche’s correctness. Lourene Hanser loved a little Chinaman. Ray Foster was contemplating a merger of Kroger and A P for private reasons. Melba Dorr had a permanent pass to the Honor Roll. Walter Guller walked with his head in the clouds. TWENTY-SEVENEleanor Mucha dogged Beatrice’s heels in typing awards. Laura Jacobs had a permanent—once. Edward Stegemeier had that School Boy Complexion. Ruth Schneider was Rass’ twin. Donald Brockmeier was contented, therefore proving Emerson's philosophy on the degree of compensation. Mildred Borman, Dot Neudecker. Ruth Betzold, and Edna Faust battered a hockey ball most efficiently. Helen Brunworth—“full many a gem”—let Gray finish. Roland Spitze resembled John Gilbert—his hair was wavy. William Smoltz resembled John Gilbert—his hair was wavy. Joseph Aubrecht resembled John Gilbert—his hair was wavy. Norma Johanntosettel prospered by sending her name to puzzle concoeters. Josephine Svaldi boiled with rage on reading Schopenhauer’s Essay on Women. Ben Richards—dat Panjabi. Rass and Jimmie—dose dopes. THE SENIOR AN ALLEGORY The way is cleared, the coyer mob pushed back, The freshmen were rebuked; grim Juniors lined the track. The purple ray was placed, fresh roses strewn about And then the trumpet blared; up rose a lusty shout, Resounding it came back, hosannas clear and loud, As down the steps there rami' a figure tall and proud, The Senior! 'I was the Senior! Looking out above the crou d! J. R. P. IWENTY-EIGHTII m h A ' v yy N ,%C » -.

He extended his hand and told me his name. I was very much surprised to find that he was George Moorman, the boy we elected captain of that championship team in ’30. He explained to me that the “H” was for football at Harvard, and because the new semester was starting he was on his way back. Then we began to talk of the good old days in E. H. S. “Remember when we were Freshmen? We had the largest class that ever entered High School.” “Yes, and we won the picture given for the best one-act class play and donated it to the school. Our talent made most of the others look sick.” And the tests made us look that way too, remember?’ “Do I? But in our Sophomore year it was different.” “Yes, very much so. We began to feel at home in old E. H. S. 1 think almost every one came out on top of the tests in that year.” “Yes, and then came our .Junior year, one of the biggest of our history. Remember we were the first undergraduate class to have individual pictures for “The Tiger” ? )ur football team was pretty good, although we sat in the fourth place when the season ended. And in basketball we had a pretty good team, but the other schools had better ones. That year we occupied the cellar at the end of the season. “And you almost forgot that the people made us a present of a $f)0,000 gymnasium that year.” “And we have our first big three-act play. Some of us had a little stage fright, but we recovered after several rehearsals. The gym was packed the night the play was given, remember?” “Yes, and will you ever forget our Senior year?” But as I started to remind George of the day when we received our rings and pins, the car arrived, and after a hurried “Good-bye” he was gone.

TRAVELS OF THE CLASS OF ’31 We are nearing the end of our second mile on the broad highway of E. H. S. Two years ago, in 1927, we bade farewell to our beloved Junior High, never again to return there for lessons. We began a new and harder struggle—that of climbing a steeper and more difficult ascent. W'e set out on our first mile with brave hearts, prepared to meet the worst of hardships. There were rocks and stones that we stumbled over—rocks called History and Algebra, stones called Latin and English. We stumbled, but we did not fall. We w'ere determined to go on. With Robert Ax. Paul Stolze and Donald Wilson as our leaders we reached the first milestone and passed it by. Then we started on our second mile. We elected Calvin Judd. Mary Dailey, and Allene Davidson as our leaders on this mile and now we have discovered that there are even more difficulties to overcome—Geometry and Caesar.

There were seven from the Sophomores who received letters in football. There are more players on the E. H. S. basketball team from the Sophs than from any other class in High School. They are all good players, but two outshine the rest. They are Calvin Judd and Reno Tenor. Now our second milestone is fading behind us and a third is looming up in the distance. Soon we shall have passed that one and then shall labor to pass the next and at last we shall achieve the goal that all student.; traveling on the E. H. S. highway are struggling to reach. That goal is the day in 1931 that shall see us graduate from E. H. S. and travel the highway alone. “They say that life is a highway and its milestones are the years.

Freshman left port with a crew of 120 for a four-year cruise on the “Sea of Knowledge.” September 8. 1928—Severe storms (our studies) encountered. Ship not thrown off of course, although its crew is beseiged by fright and sickness. October 10, 1928—S. S. Freshman sailed into the “Bay of Athletics,” where several of its crew disembarked at the “Harbor of Football” and are striving for the Freshman football emblem. October 21, 1928—Reports! The first returns of our work on board are out! November 19, 1928—S. S. Freshman no longer without officers. Captain, Jensen; First Mate, Welty, and Second Mate, Smith, were chosen from among our crew. December 4. 1 928—S. S.

January 2 4 and 25, 19 29—Barriers ahead! We were warned, but many relied too greatly on the safe guidance of the ship and were left stranded on the “rocks of failure. ” January 29, 1929—Although our crew has diminished in number since the memorable 7th day of September, twenty-eight brave sailors joined us to fill the vacant ranks at the beginning of the new semester. We are told that they are all able men and among them is Veva June Appel, who now brings to the S. S. Freshman her violin talent. March 15, 19 29—Freshman party held on board ship. Our first party was made a success under the sponsorship of Miss Adams. June 7. 1929—We have passed the first “lap” of our journey. Better positions having been offered us on the S. S. Sophomore, we leave the ship that has safely piloted us through the “Freshman storms” with many regrets, but with hopes of promotion to the Junior and Senior ships, respectively. Each is a step nearer to Commencement. which leads to our goal, “The ocean of life.” HELEN JENSEN.

Under his supervision we have had championship football and basketball teams and for the past two years we have won the conference track meet. Mr. Blodgett came to our High School immediately after his graduation from Shurtleff College at Alton, where he had earned letters in football, basketball, baseball and track. His record proves that he is not only capable of directing our three major sports, but also that he himself is an all-around athlete, who can show his proteges “how it is done We are fortunate in having a coach of his ability and with the personality to command the respect and admiration of those whom he guides. Whatever faults our teams might have, we feel sure they are not the faults of the coach. forty-sixBert’s Finish—State Meet, Champaign. TRACK SUMMARY The track season of 19 28 was tlie most successful one we have ever had in the Edwardsville High School. Young, probably the most versatile, all-around athlete that Edwardsville ever had, contributed a great deal towards the success of our team. Bert equaled the state record for the 4 40 and set a school record with the discus. The relay teams, Heidinger, Eldor Cas-sens, Arnold Cassens, and Young, deserves much credit. Loewen and Thayer, Alton, are joint holders of a conference record in the pole vault. Snadjr, Marburger. Heidinger. and Schaefer were instrumental in the team's winning. Another noteworthy fact is the achievement of Albert Young, who placed THIRD in the National meet at Chicago. This is the greatest achievement any High School student in E. H. S. has attained for his school in the athletic events.Left to Right— Standing—Schumacher, Snajdr, Williamson, Sooy, Coach Blodgett, Sager, Ahrens, Brockmeier, A. Cassens.

S. took part was held at Edwards-ville. The E. H. S. squad, led by Captain Young, easily won the meet by a score of 78 2 3 to 34 1 3. Young was high-point man. DUAL MEET E. H. S. and EAST ST. LOI'IS April 21 The second meet was held at Edwardsville. The team showed the results of hard training by winning the meet by a big margin. 70 % to 42%. Young was high-point man. Snadjr was third.

This meet brought out the fact that Coach Blodgett has several promising athletes for the coming season. Edwardsville pulled another of its noted hair-breadth escapes in the triangular meet with Belleville and Collinsville at Edwardsville on April 13. While the Bengals led in the sprints and hurdles, they were unable to displace the sturdy Kahoks in the weight and other field events. The final outcome depended on the relay, and by virtue of this victory we came out 2 2 3 points in the lead. The relay was by far the most interesting of all. and the time made by the quartette of Tenor, Cassens. Fahrig, and Rohm gives prophecy of a record shattered in this later in the season. Edwardsville went down to defeat for the first time in the annual quad meet at Granite City. Despite the defeat. Edwardsville had several things to be proud of, and the number of medals borne home witnessed the fact that we were not overwhelmed. Arnold Cassens, hampered by an injured leg, was good enough to come home in the 440-yard dash in the remarkable time of fifty-five and one-tenth seconds. Arnold was also victorious in the javelin, tossing it out for 148 feet 8 inches. Bohm’s winning of the 220-yard dash from a fast field, including Gotler of Wood River, was one of the brightest spots for Edwardsville. Rohm was beaten by Gotler in the 100-yard dash, but only by a slight step, and we were assured that it would never happen again. The relay team, in running close to the time of last year’s champion team, gave promise of another conference winner this year. When this race had been run. Wood River was about 15 points in the lead, which meant a victory for them. Edwardsville was second, with Granite City and Alton well to the rear. FORTY-NINEFOOTBALL CAPTAIN SXA.IDW TACKLE Ed was chosen captain after the season of ’2 7. Always playing hard, he has been an inspiration to his team, and has never failed to live up to our highest expectations. Ed was chosen on all-conference teams the past two years.

The Tigers were practically a new team, having only two letter men to assist them. Staunton outclassed the Bengals the first half of the game, scoring 33 points, while the Tigers were unable to cross the line. However, the second half, Captain Snajdr and his aids were able to hold the Staunton-ites to 7 points and gather 6 points for their benefit when Moorman retrieved a fumble and carried the leather across in the third quarter. The last period had Staunton scoring their only points in the second half. LIVINGSTON 7—TIGERS .‘ 7 After a week of diligent practice, Livingston visited the Tigers on the E. H. S. campus, only to become the Tigers first victims. The Tigers were able to score in every quarter, collecting 19 points the first half and 18 the second half. The visitors scored their lone touchdown the last quarter. This game featured the playing of Captain Snajdr and Kelly Judd. WOOD RIVER 0—TIGERS 0 The Tigers made the trip to Wood River for the first conference game. This game had no favorable outcome, the score being 0-0 at the conclusion. Although the Tigers fought their best, they were unable to score against their heavier opponents. The greater part of the game was played in midfield, which showed the balanced strength of the team. EAST ST. LOUIS 26—TIGERS 0 The second conference tilt was held on the home field, when the Tigers were hosts to the East Side gridders. The visitors were too much for the locals the first three quarters. However, the Tigers piled up six fast downs in succession during the last quarter, but were only able to advance to the 7-yard line when they were held. The final counting was 26-0, with the Bengals hanging on the short end. ALTON 0—TIGERS 7 The Tigers engaged in a very muddy battle on the home field, when Alton, accompanied by rain, fell before the lines of the E. H. S. gridders. The first two periods of the game were played near the center of the field, but the third quarter the SPITZE FAHRIG CALDWELL SNAJDR RICHARDS WANDLING Right Guard Left Half Left End Right Tackle Right End Full Back FIFTY-ONEBengals retaliated and came within !» yards of a goal, only to he held by the Al-tonians.

Wandling carried the ball through center and over the line. COLU XXVI LLE 25—TIGERS 2 On the day after Armistice the Tigers declared war on Collinsville, only to be defeated to the tune of 25-2. The Kahoks and Musso were able to score one touchdown in each period, while the Bengals gathered their two points when Schumacher, with the aid of Brockmeier, pulled down Musso behind the line when he missed the leather on a pass from center. This game was very rough and constituted a great number of penalties. BKLLKVILLK 0—TKIKKS 12 The Bengals avenged their defeat at Collinsville by a victory over the Belleville eleven. During the first half neither team gained any headway, but to open the third stanza Belleville fumbled the ball; in the meantime Reno Tenor scooped it up and balanced it 30 yards over the line for the first points. The next quarter featured the longest run of the season, when Reno again grabbed the leather out of the air, intercepted a pass, and ran 70 yards to a touchdown. The game ended in a second conference victory. LITCTIEI ELI) 54—TIGERS 0 On November 21 the local eleven made the trip to Litchfield and were given an anesthetic by their opponents that put them well asleep. I'nder this trance they found the opposition too strong and succumbed to the score of 54-0. The Litchfield boys scored heavily in every quarter, collecting 21 points in the third quarter alone. GRANITE CITY 32—Tigers 0 On Thanksgiving Day the Tigers deprived themselves of turkey, thinking of possible victory, but were deceived by the Happy Warriors, who romped away with a 32-0 victory. The Tigers held their opponents scoreless the first and third quarters, but became victims of the Warriors in the second and final periods. Although the score seems rather large, the game was hard fought and Granite was assured that the Tigers made anything but “duck soup.” DAVIDSON BERLEMAN MOORMAN Right Halfback Fullback Left Tackle HUBACH GOFF SCHUMACHER Center RiKht Tackle Right End FIFTY-TWO“St 111 BASKET BALL ’28, ’29 The mention of the past season brings fine memories to us because of the team that through a shower of criticism fought their battles to a finish. The members did not shirk at the hardships of each game, although the words from the public were most unkind. The team did not hang up a wonderful record—but it did keep up the spirit, which was essential to its continuous fighting efforts and can be praised for that. The season opened in the new gym and a very large crowd came to witness the first contest. The team fought throughout, but was defeated. Time after time our players came out on the short end. but they were not discouraged. Edward Snajdr was the retiring captain and Kelly Judd came up to pilot the squad. The co-operation cf the players was excellent and the games were very close, but still we had the breaks against us and continued to lose until the day when the Tigers defeated the runner-ups in the tournament. The unceasing efforts of the team were thus rewarded to some extent. THE TOT UNAM FAT The state district tournament was held at Edwardsville March 7. 8. 9. The teams competing were divided into two classes. Class A. and Class B. There were several interesting games, but those between Wood River and Granite and Collinsville and Livingston aroused the most excitement. Wood River and Granite fought on practically even terms until the last part of the fourth quarter, when Granite managed to forge ahead. The big upset of the tournament was the defeat of Collinsville by Livingston. The game was clore all the way with Collinsville leading at the third quarter by one point. Livingston managed to make a field goal during the latter part of the fourth quarter to win the game. Granite easily defeated Livingston in the finals, thus winning the beautiful trophy offered to the winner of the tournament. FIFTY-THREKE. SNA JDK - - Guard Ed, ’28 and ’29 pilot, was primarily a defensive man, but was by no means unable to find the basket. Ed was captain until the second semester this year, when his ninth semester made him ineligible. He was a capable all-around player and will be greatly missed next year. C. JUDD - - Forward Captain Kelly played a fast offensive game all year and was high-point man for the season. He is a determined player with plenty of pep and fight, an excellent floor man. a good dribbler, and expert shot. Kelly is back next year, as captain-elect, to help give other teams plenty of competition. D. SCHNEIDER - - Forward Every inch a fighter, Dale was high-point man in our first game against East Side. He always fought fairly and squarely 'till the whistle sounded. He played a determined and conscientious game, and we are sorry he will not be back again next year. I . STOLZE - - Forward I aul came into his own the latter half of the season when, in his second conference game, he romped through the Alton defense to be high-point man. With two years to improve, he should develop into a star before his High School days are over. FIFTY-FOURD. DAILEY - - Guard Dan has fought his last game for the Orange and Black, but his lighting spirit and defensive work will be long remembered. Dan was a fast guard, a good dribbler, and a “dead shot” on free throws. Competition on the defensive end will be heavy next year with Dan out. C. GOFF - - Center-Guard In Cliff Goff. E. H. S. has an exceptionally good prospect. He is only a Freshman and has three years to increase his ability as an all-around player. If true sportsmanship has anything to do with his success. Cliff will be one of the best. G. MOORMAN - - Center-Guard This was George’s first year on the team and he proved himself a star on the defense. He is a Junior, full of fight and endurance, and is never beaten till the whistle has blown. He will be back next year to assist E. H. S. to a victorious season. It. TENOR - - Forward Iteno proved himself not only a good floor man, but also a good point winner. He broke loose to lead the scoring in two of our most exciting games against Collinsville and Alton. Reno has two more years and much is expected of him. FIFTY-FIVETENNIS France has its tennis triumvirate, Cochet. LaCoste, and Brugnon, but who cares for France? We have Sammy, Dale, and Jimmy, and who says the comparison is not a fair one? We admit that they didn't finish first, but then even Tilden loses occasionally. If you’d have seen them trounce Wood River and been present when Sammy played at Collinsville and watched Jimmy battle so valiantly against Sauer and seen Dale chase himself all over the courts in that Belleville game—but we must stop from lack of breath. Anyway, we know we’re all glad that the same team is back this year, and though it’s against our policy to make early predictions, we ll wager that they’ll be crowding another cup into our trophy case at the end of the tennis season. fifty-six ' V a «• , v s KVC Wk • V Ay» FIFTY-SEVENGIRLS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HELEN BRADY - -- -- -- -- -- President JOSEPHINE BURROUGHS ----- Vice President MARJORIE BAIRD - ----- Secretary-Treasurer As first president of the G. A. A., Helen has done much to promote the aim of the organization and create good will among its members. Her athletic ability was not excelled by many. She was on the tennis team and junior basketball team. The Girls’ Athletic Association was organized last fall and made a member of the Illinois Girls Athletic Association. The aim of the association is to further health and sportsmanship among girls. The awarding of emblems is based on the point system, each girl getting so many points for each sport in which she participates. Six hundred points wins her numerals; twelve hundred, her letter; sixteen hundred, the first state award, and two thousand, the highest state award. Before receiving any of these she must have kept training for sixteen weeks, eight consecutive weeks at a time. The association sponsors basketball, hockey, tennis, volley ball and hiking. Backing the association and coaching the various sports are Miss Lawson, Miss Weigel Miss Ricke, and Miss Oliver. Though it was the first year, much interest was shown in the G. A. A., there being about fifty charter members. Because of its value to the girls of E. H. S., the G. A. A. will certainly remain and become a permanent institution in our High School. The first emblems awarded in E. H.

In fact the team practices so hard it couldn’t even take time off to have a picture taken. But we are assured from the interest displayed in it that Volley Ball has come to E. H. S. to stay and under the direction of Miss Ricke is holding its place along with all other athletic sports. FIFTY-NINFTENNIS In our only inter-scholastic girls sports, the tennis team lias upheld the tradition of E. H. S. in its ability to compete with other schools. Organized last year the girls made us very proud of them by winning most of their games. “Dot” Neudecker and “Mart” Sebastian composed the doubles team, while “Pat” Brady played singles, and “Pat” doesn’t stop at defeating girls. She proved this at Collinsville last year by playing McWerter and beating him, much to the amusement ot those who watched the impromptu match. The results of last year’s season were as follows: Doubles defeated Belleville, 6-4 and 9-7. Pat went down before the Belleville champ, 6-4, 1-6, 6-4. Doubles beat Collinsville, 6-3, 6-4 in a very interesting and evenly matched game. Helen avenged her Belleville defeat by a 6-0, 6-1 victory over C. T. H. S. Dot and Mart won from Granite 6-4, 6-0.

They went through the tournament without a defeat and will challenge the boys to a game any day and probably not come out second either! Basketball, in its first year at E. H. S., showed its popularity over other sports. So many girls turned out for it at the beginning of the season that it was necessary to divide them into two groups. Some played the eighth period, while others played on Tuesday nights and Saturday afternoons. Coached by Miss Lawson, the girls soon began to show their ability at teamwork and caging shots. In February, class teams were chosen and a tournament played which the Juniors won, though the Freshmen were stiff contenders and will probably prove keen competition for the champions next year.

In 1926 and 1927 it was a double trio and the fourth part was added last year. For the last three years a single quartette has been sent to the McKendree Interscholastic and in 19 27 the girls placed fourth out of sixteen entries. Commencement will find the double quartette with a large gap to fill as five of its members graduate. As the infant member of the music department, the newly organized Hoys’ Chorus showed remarkable ability in its first public appearance, the Glee Club concert. Early this spring a Hoys’ Double Quartette was chosen from the chorus. In 1927 the Music Department presented the operetta “The Gypsy Rover,” in 1928 “Miss Cherry Blossom,” and is now planning to produce “Hearts and Blossoms” on May 28.

SEVENTY-ONETHE HALLOWE’EN PARTY “Ghosts walked and ait dies wailed, downs per for wed and confetti sailed." On the eve of the 31st of October the annual school Hallowe en party was given in the new gym. We were greeted at the door by a tall white ghost, who ushered us into the gym. What a pretty and unusual sight! Old-fashioned ladies waltzed with clowns, two rag dolls walked about arm in arm, and over in one corner a pirate was gesturing wildly to a French peasant. At 8:30 a grand march was held and the judges awarded prizes to: Funniest Girl—Corrine Faust. Most Original—Helen Rizzoli, Laurene Pierson, rag dolls. William Long, Marshall Wayne, bathing beauty and photographer. Prettiest—Edna Smith, old-fashioned lady. Ella M. Williams, Pierrette. Queerest—Edward Funderberg, Erwin Fisher, old man and old lady. Funniest Hoy—Arthur Sievers. Everyone was then requested to sit on the north bleachers and the various classes entertained the guests with stunts. The Freshmen gave a clown stunt which featured a solo dance by Dorothy Kay. The Sophomores, a group of girls dressed as hoboes, gave a jig. The Juniors, using witches and a cauldron, predicted future happenings. The mighty Seniors danced the Virginia Reel dressed in foolish costumes. Then everyone was told to dance and get his fortune told. Among those present were clowns, ghosts, witches, old-fashioned girls and men, a Russian and French peasant, farmer boys, and even two West Point cadets graced the party with their presence. The orchestra pit was made of bales of straw and was placed at the easV end of the gym. At 10 o’clock eats were served on the stage. They consisted of soda, Eskimo pies, cookies, and suckers. Alter the refreshments, dancing was resumed and at 10:30 everyone left for home. The first party held in the new gym was declared a success. SEVENTY TWOTHE JUNIOR PARTY Stunts, games, and dancing furnished the entertainment for »he Juniors at their annual party on January 15. About a week before the party the class was divided into four groups. Each group was required to furnish some sort of entertainment. The first group gave a stunt called ‘ The Pictures They Didn’t Send to Ma.” It was very entertaining. Pat Brady, the photographer, took the pictures of everyone in the family from the baby, who cried her eyes out and crawled all over the floor, to the grandpa. The second stunt. “The Melerdramer,” was intensely dramatic. The players even assaulted each other with salt shakers. The third stunt was “A Successful Operation.” Boh Welch, the doctor, performed amazing operations upon his patient. The poor individual’s leg was sawed off and thrown in a corner, his spinal column was extracted and disposed of, and it was finally discovered that he was suffering from a serious case of cancer. After a few more punches, prods, and pokes he was declared cured and arose from the operating table and walked out of the room. An amazing feat! The fourth group furnished as their entertainment a game called “Spin the Pie Pan.” If you didn't catch the spinning pan before it fell to the floor when your number was called, you had to pay a forfeit. It proved interesting to witness some of the forfeits being redeemed. After all this tremendous exertion the guests entertained themselves by dancing to the music of an improvised orchestra. At 3 0 o’clock eats were served in the hall. The fare was cheese and weiner sandwiches, Eskimo pies, and fruit punch. After the eats, dancing was resumed and at 11 o'clock everyone went home. The party was a howling success. THE SENIOR PARTY At last it happened—the much-longed for Senior party! At 8 o'clock the fun began and everybody climbed up on the north bleachers to witness a stunt given by some of the members of the class. It was called “The Romance of AB and QT” and proved to be humorous as well as interesting. The girls all liked the way AB (Dale Schneider) proposed. And then SENIORS played “spin the plate.” Everybody was given a number and had to catch the plate before it fell, if his number was called. If he didn’t he had to pay a forfeit—oh! you know how it’s played. Really it was lots of fun. You should have seen Coach walk the railing in the gym and heard Mr. Gunn sing a cute li’l song about monkeys. After that we danced to music furnished by Joe Ladd. “Rass” Schneider, and Bun Hill, and had our eats, which consisted of ice-cream sandwiches, pop, hot dogs, and pickles. THE FRESHMAN PARTY The class spirit of the Freshmen was shown by the way they attended their class party on the night of February 21. The Freshies spent the early portion of the evening playing games, drop the cane, steal the bacon, etc. If your number was called and you didn’t catch the cane before it struck the floor, you were required to pay a forfeit. The forfeits were sold by Mr. Brown. After they had finished playing games the guests were entertained by circle dances (and the Freshies can dance, too). After the tremendous exertion of dancing, those present were given cherry pie a la mode, and punch. At 10:30 the guests were sent home and without a doubt the Freshman party was a great success. s EV E NT Y - TH R E E Time IilClEI5== THE SOPHOMORE PARTY 11--------and we had the BEST time!” That is tlie way the Sophs expressed it. The party was held on Saturday night, January 26, in the gym. All the guests having arrived by 8:30, everyone was told to play bunco. So play bunco they did and Catherine Bothman won the prize, a noise-maker. We had no idea that she could handle those little cubes like that. After the tables had been removed, those present made merry by dancing to the music of an improvised orchestra. At 10 o'clock eats were served in the hall. The menu was ham salad and punch. The punch was so good that some of the faculty staged a contest to see who could drink the most. At 10:30 everyone went home. and we had the GRANDEST time, and oh. that marvelous punch!” JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET MASONIC TEMPLE MAY 12. 1928 Menu Creamed chicken on toast Potatoes au Gratin Buttered Parkerhouse rolls Olives Rose radishes May Fruit salad Cheese straws Strawberry Delight Salted nuts Coffee Program Toastmaster -------- Toast to the Seniors..........

SEVENTY-FOURTHE CHARM SCHOOL What is charm? Can it be taught in school? Just ask Spencer Allen. His plan of teaching charm in a girls’ school went over with a bang at E. H. S. on Tuesday, April 2nd! The Juniors’ play was unique in many ways. It was the first play given in the gym, before our new cyclorama, and behind our gorgeous new velvet curtain. Our new radio was used for the first time to furnish entertainment between acts. The play itself fostered a new idea never before taught in E. H. S. Having received a girls’ boarding school under the terms of his aunt’s will, Mr. Levans, a promising young man with many ideas, decided to take over the school and run it. At the school matters came to a crisis. The girls decided to strike and go home because a cross old man was to be in charge of the school. At this point Mr. Bevans arrived on the scene, and after they had seen him the girls decided to remain. Aided by his friends, Mr. Bevans revolutionized the school, to the disgust of the faculty, and made all the girls happy. He also won the president of the Senior Class, who had fallen deeply in love with him.

It’s—only the glass.” And many other such expressions were heard by the crowd who witnessed Tark-ington’s “Tweedles” presented by the Senior Class on May 2. The story is a farce dealing with the struggle between two families for prominence. The Castleburys. an aristocratic Philadelphia family, do not wish their supposed simple-minded son to marry Winsora Tweedle. the daughter of a native villager in a new England summer resort. On the other hand, the Tweedles consider the Castleburys " nobodies out of nowhere." and will not permit Winsora to have any-thlrg to Co with Julian. After it any trying scenes.

In fact, the study halls were practically empty all day and the board nearly decided to enlarge the library. 24 Miss Martin entertains fifth period study hall trying to open the windows of 108, but the stubborn things resist her charms and refuse to open. 2 5 Ruth Fruit drops her pencil on floor in 108—Ruthie dives after it—chair goes after Ruthie!

All the boys come down to laugh but the laugh was on them, for they were kindly asked to leave before the game began. 16 Juniors start having individual pictures taken for the Tiger. This is the first time the Juniors have done this and it’s creating more excitement than the Senior pictures. 17 The instability of a seat in Mr. Gunn’s room causes Bruce Crossman to land on the floor with a bang the third period. 18 Pep meeting and assembly sing. We sing songs selected by the faculty. Wonder which English teacher requested ‘‘Let the Rest of the World Go By”? And how we yelled! WMioopie! Come on, you Kahoks! 19 Collinsville is up to its old scalping tricks again. But we had them going the first half. Thrilling! Why we started to run circles around them. But that was all.

She says, “Please remove your gum before I have to make personal calls.” 5 Hurray! Look at the snow! At noon the boys stage a battle in our “front yard.” After school the interrupted snowball “war” is continued on St. Louis Street. 6 This noon the fight includes Messrs. Gunn, Smith, and Brown and EVEN Mr. Krumseik throws snowballs. What is our faculty coming to? And we are told that our principal stooped over to get some snow and---- anyway Coach came to the rescue with his overcoat. 7 Heavens! What ARE those peculiar sounds coming from the gym? Oh. dear! What a blunder. It’s only the Boys’ Chorus practicing! 8 Assembly sing. We try out a new system. The boys sit in one section and the girls in another.

Harold Sheldon arrives from Massa- chusetts. Welcome, Harold! We hope you'll like us! Kelly wore a cap today! First time this winter. What’s going to happen. Now if we can only convince Catherine Bothman also that hats were made for wearing we will have accomplished something. 12 Group pictures are taken for the Tiger. Taken in the gym the last three periods this morning. We are absolutely inconsolable over the loss of those periods. What a game with Granite!

Plumbing Fixtures like all other materials change in style very rapidly and are modernized with new and improved features. It is a known fact that people install plumbing fixtures in a new home and forget them for 20 or 30 years and yet people get new motor cars every 3 or 4 years to keep in style and to obtain the latest improvements. In the present day and age there has been a vast change in styles and numerous improvements have been made in Plumbing Fixtures. It would be well for you to have a plumber make a survey of your present bathroom and let him show you the new and improved NONCO Plumbing Fixtures.
