The Tigers met Beaumont in the initial game, September 26, but they let Beaumont go home with the large end of a 19-0 score. The Tigers held the visiting teams to one touchdown until the last few minutes to play, and then Beaumont scored the other two touchdowns.
Mt. Olive was the next game on the program. The game was played on our own grid field and the Tigers walked off with high honors. The Bengals held Mt. Olive scoreless, while they themselves made 21 points to win the game.
On October 9, the Tigers played the Oilers in the first conference game of the season. They took this game away from the Oilers, when they made the extra point on their touchdown, while Wood River failed to annex theirs. The score at the end of the game was 7-6.
Alton journeyed to the Tigers’ grid field next and gave the Tigers their first conference defeat. The Tigers were ahead until the fourth quarter, when the Alton eleven made a touchdown. The score stood 7-2 in favor of Alton when the final whistle blew.
Page sixteenThe Tigers, overconfident, nearly lost the game with Livingston, but during the first part of the fourth quarter they made the six points, which won the game. The score was 6-0 at the end of the fourth quarter.
The Bengals journeyed to Last Side for their fir t out-of-town game of the season, and they came hack at the tail end of a 20-0 score. 1 he Last Side eleven made 7 points in the first half and the other 13 points during the latter half. Kavalier was the chief scorer when he made the last two touchdowns.
Madison came to Edwardsville next and gave the Tigers another victory, which made them tied in conference games, 2-2. 4 he 1 igers stopped Madison’s passing offense and therefore they held the visiting team scoreless. The Blodgettmen piled up twenty points during the 24 minutes to make the score 20-0.
The annual Armistice Day game between Collinsville and Edwardsville was played on the former’s field. The score stood 6-6 until the last few minutes to play when Collinsville made the winning touchdown. This made the score 12-6 in favor of the Kahoks.
The Tigers journeyed to Belleville next to battle the Belleville eleven. East Side and Belleville were tied for high honors in the conference standing until the Tigers played them. The Flyers were unable to push the ball through the Edwardsville line and they likewise held the Tigers from carrying the hall very far. The score ended as it had begun, 0-0.
The Tigers closed the football season with the annual Turkey-Dav game with Granite. This year it was played at Edwardsville, and to make matters worse than the snow, rain, and cold weather, the Happy Warriors defeated us, 6-2. The Granite eleven made their touchdown in the first part of the game and all that the Blodgettmen were able to do was to push the Granite team back of its own goal for the two points. THE TIGERETTE

The Beaumont-Edwardsville game opened the basketball season for the E. H. S. The visiting team won the game very easily, as they have done in former years. The score was 26-10 compared with 32-22 last year. The Tigers' next game was with Livingston, who trimmed us also. Rodegherio, Livingston’s guard, accounted for 14 of the points made by his team. The game ended with the score 17-8. Madison came to Edwardsville to play the Tigers their first conference game of the season. The visiting team went back home w ith the long end of a .30-20 score. The Tigers played the “Old Tigers” during Christmas Holidays, and could the Alumni still play basketball—? The score was very much one-sided, and it was the largest score of the season, 31-17. The Tigers next game was with Collinsville on the latter's floor. Parker, the high point man for Collinsville, made 12 points while Tenor, high point man for Edwardsville, only made 5 points. The game ended with the Kahoks in the lead of a 37-12 score. East Side came to Edwardsville next and took another victory away from the Tigers by a 35-16 score. The main event of this game was that the band played at its first athletic event that night.
The Oilers, our next contenders, were beaten by the Tigers to the tune of 26-14. This game gave the Tigers their first conference victory. The Oilers obtained the lead but once and from then on the Tigers held the lead. On Friday, January 15, the Tigers journeyed to Granite to meet the Happy Warriors in battle. The Tigers played hard, but were unable to keep the Granite quintet from scoring and, as a result, the Blodgettmen came home with the small end of a 24-18 score. Alton was our next foe and the Tigers
‘ tge eighteen
19 3 2received another beating. The Alton five were able to score 31 points during the game and only allowed the Tigers 12 points. Eugene Campbell was high point man with 13 points to his credit.

team gained its lead in the first half, making 19 points to the 1 igers 5. 1 hen. during the last half, the Bengals were able to break even with the opposing team. The score at the end of the game was 31-17.
The Tigers went to Madison next to play the return game. This time the Tigers played a much better game and were able to win by a very close margin. The score at the half was 10-10 and when the final whistle blew. 20-19, with the Tigers on top. Our next contestant was the mighty Collinsville team. The Tigers, playing a much better game after the defeating of the Madison quintet, held the visitors to 17 points, while they themselves made 15 points. Tuesday, Februrary 2, the Tigers went to East Side to see what they could do there. The team was unfortunate in not being able to bring home a very even score. The East Side boys made a 26-point lead, with the Tigers only scoring 16 points. The Tigers journeyed to Wood River next to pay their old time rivals a return game. The Local Five was unable to make as good a showing as it did before, and the Oilers held the big end of a 32-17 score. The Tigers played Granite City next on our own iloor, but the Bengals failed to defeat the visiting team. In the third quarter the home team was able to tie the score, but at the end of the game the Happy Warriors were leading by a 26-21 score.
Alton was our next contestant and in this game the Tigers played much better basketball. As a result they won another conference game. The score was close throughout and the game wasn't decided until the last few minutes of play. The score ended 21-17 in favor of the Tigers. The Belleville quintet came "to Edwardsville next and played the Tigers their last conference game. This game put the Tigers in the cellar all by themselves, whereas, if they had won, they would be tied with Belleville for the cellar. The final score was 27-23, much closer than the other game with Belleville. Our team next met the Lebanon five in a non-conference game on Saturday, February 27. The Lebanon team was unable to keep the Tigers down and the game ended with the score 19-15 in favor of Edwardsville.

When you return to the well you will find what you wished for.”
Of course complications arise. The greatest of these is when Lady Mary finds herself unable to pay the mortgage and thinks she must leave her home.

“The Purple Monkey”, a three-act comedy, was presented March 29 by the Junior class of our high school. The play was directed by Miss Alice Cheek with Miss Virginia Weigel as business manager.
The play centers around Sally Walters, a girl of rather changeable ideas, who causes her friends and family a great deal of discomfort. When the play begins, Sally, played by Dolores Ballweg. has just returned from New York, where she was seized with the “free soul” idea. That is. let your own inclinations be your guide—devote your life to the pursuit of Truth and Beauty. She persists in this, defying her family, her friends, and the man

The play ends happily with two couples, James Rand and Barbara Dale pins Sally and David, edging on the ball and chain idea.
" ho ouldn’t Be Crazy” was the Senior play selected for this year. It was in charge of Miss Edna Pergrem and was presented at the High School gym. The background for the play is the Drinkwater Sanitarium, a home for mild mental cases.

At the sanitarium Jack recognizes Lois Meredith, who is putting on a play for the patients, as the girl he has trailed all over Europe. So he decides to sojourn there for awhile.
Jack brings about the return of Edward Gorgon, fiance of Evelyn Winslow. Evelyn is an heiress who lost her mind when her lover left her and has been at the sanitarium ever since. She possesses the famous Winslow jewels, a fortune in themselves, which she wears constantly. When Edward returns, she at once regains all her mental capacities.

The girls’ and hoys' (dee Clubs meet twice a week. They are in charge of Miss Edna Pergrem. Glee Club gives the student one-fourth a credit a semester. Both Glee clubs have been working on three part songs this year.
The quartets of last year have been changed mostly into trios. The one that has been sent out the most this year was composed of Louise Brede-hoeft, soprano; Marguerite Hiles, second soprano, and Mary Baird, contralto. This trio sang at East Saint Louis at the District Teachers' Meeting. '1 he mixed quartet also ranks very high.
Our band and orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. illis C. arner, have been doing some fine work. The band meets twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, from eight to nine in the morning. The orchestra meets on Wednesdays from one to two-fifteen. The band played at several football games and basketball games this year. The orchestra played for the Junior and Senior plays.
The Hi-Y (Y. M. C. A.) was organized to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and surrounding community higher standards of Christian living. The platform of the Hi-Y, clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship, and clean living, expresses the fundamental ideas behind this nation-wide organization. The Hi-Y has taken its place in our high school and has shown its stability during the last year. It sends delegates to the Older Bovs’ Conference, held every year by the Illinois Hi-Y. Meetings are held at the high school every Wednesday evening at 7:30. Outstanding moral questions of the day that confront modern youth are the subjects under discussion. The officers are Mr. H. B. Gunn and J. J. Love, sponsors; Paul Gerling. president; Gilmore Schaefer, vice-president; Harvey Voss, treasurer: and Ralph Ladd, secretary.
This is our first year of newspaper work in Edwardsville High School. The paper staff was organized in October. The name E. H. S. Review was chosen and the paper was launched on its career. Publications are every two weeks.
For our first year the paper has been quite a success. Miss Alice Cheek, sponsor, took it to the University of Illinois, where it received distinguished rating in the high school newspaper contest. William Henry is editor-in-chief with Veva June Appel assistant editor.
The Tigerette was the final publication of the high school.

The hiking club is an athletic club with a two-fold purpose: (1) To help the girls obtain their G. A. A. credits. (2) To open this form of exercise to those who care for it. The club must hike sixty miles in eight weeks. That places the minimum hike at three miles and makes necessary one hike a week after school and several Saturday hikes. The hikes take place in the fall and are resumed again in the spring. Only one absence is allowed. If the girls fulfill the above conditions they receive eighty-four credits toward their G. A. A. work. Miss I la Oliver is their sponsor; Jeanette Moriarity, president; Evelyn Stolze, vice president; and Vera Baird, secretary.
The Cheer Club was organized last fall to promote better school spirit at football and basketball games. It did its work very well. The administration of the club was left chiefly in the hands of the cheer leaders. Several of these will be with the club next year. The club uniform was an orange sweater with “PEP" in three black letters across the front. Cheer leaders are Harvey Voss, chief cheer leader, Leeds Watson, Loretta Blume, Harrison Stubbs, Dorothea Jacobs, and Thomas Cunningham.
GIRL S’ COUNCIL
The Girls’ Council, which is in charge of Miss Vera Adams, was organized in 1923 to promote a good spirit of fellowship among the girls, betterment of the school, and to sponsor social activities for the benefit of the girls.
The council holds itself responsible for the girls wiener roast in the early fall to help the freshman girls get acquainted, the girls’ party during the second school semester to welcome the prep girls, and the girls’ dinner held in May for the installation of new council members. The council also has charge of the girls’ rest room and makes a great many improvements around the school.
Only girls of highest scholastic standing are eligible for the council. Each year the six highest girls of each class arc chosen and three from that number are council members.
Officers are Charlotte Gueltig, president: Louise Bredehoeft, vice president; Betty Brown, secretary: Carolyn Elik. treasurer; Ruth Schirmer, historian.

Many useful things are taught the girls. 1 he slogan is Do a good turn daily” and their motto—"He prepared. Officers are Pauline Steiner, leader, Louise Bredehoeft, treasurer; Edith Berner, secretary. 1 he troop is divided into four patrols. Meetings are held in room 30S Monday evenings after school.
The debating club was organized last fall with Mr. P. H. Kinsel as leader. So far the club has only a small membership, but it hopes for more interest next year. One debate was held before the Assembly: “Resolved That Football Should He Abolished From High School.” Pauline Steiner and Mary Elizabeth Goetz took the affirmative while Alvin Blixen and Paul Gerling upheld the negative. Mondays and 1 hursdavs after school are reserved as meeting nights.
SENIOR PARTY The Seniors gave a hay ride October 20. A team and wagon were hired and the Seniors journeyed out into the country. Apples, soda, dill pickles, marshmallows, wieners, and buns supplied the cravings of hungry stomachs. It was a great success.
HALLOWE’EN PARTY The annual Hallowe’en party was held October 31. All came masked, and after the grand march was over and the prizes had been awarded everyone danced for the remainder of the evening.
JUNIOR PARTY The Juniors held a “tacky” party on the night of November 13. Dancing and a program furnished entertainment for the evening.
SOPHOMORE PARTY The Sophomore parties took place November 24 and March 26. Dancing was the main amusement.
The Freshmen reserved Thursday evening, January 14, for their party. Games and dancing furnished the entertainment.
JUNIOR-SENIOR PARTY The Junior-Senior party held at the High School gymnasium Saturday, February 6, was this year converted into a leap year party, the girls taking the initiative. Treading on each others toes (dancing), furnished amusement throughout the evening. Punch and wafers were served. Everyone was entirely satisfied with the party (especially the girls). The orchestra played “Home Sweet Home” at 11 :30.siOfezac the TIGERETTE
A damp atmosphere greeted us on this first day. and then we began to organize. About the time everybody had sized up the new faculty members the Senior rings arrived. What beauties! When did we get the breaks? Remember Old Sol? He was good to us—gave us a three afternoon vacation, I5-1K. Now, who should appear on our horizon, but my dear Doctor Dutton! I hen our first football game here—not bad. but the wrong kind of a score. This month ended with a Senior ire of over a thousand degrees—no “Tiger”!
What a month—first day, assembly—Mr. Palmer gave us some side lights on newspaper work. Still going newsy, Seniors eiect the staff for the new project—the “E. H. S. Review". Brrh, it’s cold; but the team didn’t freeze—beat Woodriver. Doctor Dutton returns on the sixteenth in the person of ye paper editor. Some students slave on that "West of Broadway”, given on the twenty-second. The girls burn wieners on the nineteenth and the Seniors go hey-haying on the next night. Our paper makes its debut Oil Friday. There’s a beginning for everything and this time it’s “The Wishing Well”. Little tots sing us songs of “punkins” and we all are “witching" on Hallowe’en. That tall, mysterious stranger, who surely had us bewitched, guides us athletically.
We had a vacation! What did you do while the teachers “instituted” on the fifth and sixth.'' Ah, that’s once when we evened the score. Even coach’s mixing the dates didn’t help us ’cause we lost to Collinsville in that annual scrimmage, but what a thriller. 12-6. Excitin’? I’ll say so. We see the boys’ glee club go collegiate during the presentation of "The Freshies”. directed by Miss Pergrem. Ah. a “Madame Barefacts"! Come, what are your troubles? She answers all. "Make a joyful noise”—the paper rates. Sophs go on a spree and gayly tread a measure. “Isn’t lie wonderful?” What, don’t tell me you’ve forgotten Pierre? Surely, the French class hasn’t. We “turkey” on the grid, but Granite gets the white meat (6-2). in spite of the rain. Mrs. Schaeffer and “Little Red Riding Hood" come a-calling. Can von make dirty finger-marks on the walls?
’I lie first social outbreak, provided in the Glee Club, is “The Wishing Weil ’. A certain little freshman girl got just loads of “complies”. With a

last touchdown (party), we close the door on football until next season. Remember the dolls? So sweet! Didn't know we had such good negro voices, didja? Thank Mr. Ford for that treat. We suddenly get air-minded; Mr. Love presents just any number of famous birds (E. H. S. students). Coach had lots of fun at this assembly. A big hanking party (cake, etc.), was the interest for those financiers of Miss I’ergrem’s room. They were feted by Mr. Love’s spendthrifts. Here's the annual “hit” for the poor kiddies by the G. A. A. Santa’s everywhere, so with our Christmas program we give one long hungering sigh for that ten-day vacation.
It just can’t seem true, but it is—muddy aqua, no school. Why all the rush? Oh. I see—it's Mercola—that Byrd Expedition chap. Did he ever use your pen? It rains, hut not in basketball camp—took Woodriver. Oh boy, what a game! These crazy Seniors runnin’ around try to get your name on the line—big expansion campaign for I .. II. S. Review. Oh, by the way. Freshies add other leaves to their laurel by winning the drive, a “swelegant” party (plenty of noise, if nothing else), and presenting their prize-winning thrift play. Seniors begin to realize that it won t he long now—all sorts of college inducements come flocking. That’s a unique idea (joint assembly sing with boys in one section and girls in the other), and we even liked it! What a way to end a month—those nightmarish days—tests. Oh, what groans! Be thankful if you have even a ghost of a memory.
Little Freshie preps walk cautiously down the hall, keeping an observant eye on those confounding room numbers. Sniff, sniff, my nose says we’ve an odor of orange blossoms. Miss Hagg has set sail on that deep, endless sea. and we’re confronted by a petite blonde. That gala affair of Juniors and Seniors was a momentous success—the gay daughters of Eve providing all the necessary initiative. Do they provide? Oh. it was the best party of the year. Debated on football, the judges said. “Thumbs down!” Oh yeah! We’ve been given a little salve for injured feelings with the “ 1 igerette announcement. Popular? There is over a “three-thirty” subscription list. Those promising Freshies seem to win everything; this time its the girls annual cage and hall tussel and the “newsy drive. hat a blare! I hat s the promising “Sousas” doing their charity stunt. One of our alumni does tickle those ivories and we benefited by that. In case you Freshies forget, her name is Ruth Pieper. Maybe you doubt me, hut we really did heat Alton —a game which rewards the faithful fan. 1 a quote Skippy That was eleganter than elegant.” A pep meeting bobs up. hut no cut classes. Now don’t cry ’cause remember dear old “Georgie”. Papa of FT is Country, did give us an excuse for a half holiday and for some students conception of the greaf man. Ahem! Just where does that come in? You’ll never forget it--espe-ciallv that bathing suit or the triplets. The Juniors get a Purple Monkey

We did skate—anywhere and anytime. Even the faculty is guilt}’. A visitor? Oh, yes, a nicely mannered guest is a guinea pig. Somebody let the Kindergarten loose and they infested us for a few hours—pinafores, ribbons, and shorts. The critical Seniors, even, concede that this girls’ party was “orchidable”. Swinging into the host and hostess place we can’t forget the trophy (it’s escaped)., Collinsville’s coming out, and our almost-wrested game from Livingston. How many of you are ENGAGED? Too personal— Miss Miller! Night comes a little too soon, frightening everybody from fresh-ies to faculty. Our artists rewarded by the R. P. Y. Club. Their names are both Edna, is there art in a name? Another alumnus, Carl Richardson, tells us lots about South America. Try stretching the bank of Muddy Waters until you get that South American river. We have “Pop” Gunn, but no one is to forget whose “bullets” sing pleasantly to the ear. “Underclassmen, action; camera! Seniors have holiday!” Ah, that consuming desire to be a free soul will always keep the memory of the hero’s sister’s first date. Oh, for a Purple Monkey !
April first may have been on a Friday, but we fooled the slave drivers— we “holidayed”. Have you unhooked that light cord yet, Mr. Krumsiek? When a man so interesting as Mr. Rogers is found such a small part of the time, we’ve a right to “heroize” him. Tempus fugit quand “Madelon” sings “Auf Wiedersehen, Mien Lieb” up, over? No, on the bar. Take it for a souvenir, Kenneth. If you wish to strengthen your conception of Inferno, see a fiery furnace at Cahokia—according to a Senior. What, no assembly? Just a lot of tape, this measuring business. “Allow an eighth of an inch for swelling” says the man of the office. “Who Wouldn’t Re Crazy?” I ask you. who isn’t crazy? (With laughter). The Glee Clubs warble this to a close. May the echo of them resound. No! I’m not a Commencement speaker.or THE T1GERETTE
