'm--Center of Athletic and Social LifeTO MOTHER AND DAD, THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1940 DEDICATES THIS ISSUE OF THE TIGER, HOPING THAT IN SOME SMALL WAY IT WILL SHOW OUR APPRECIATION FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE FOR US. WE HOPE THAT THEIR SACRIFICES HAVE NOT BEEN MADE IN VAIN.FOREWORD We represent in the following pages a record of what has taken place at EHS during the past year. We sincerely hope that in years to come you can look back through these pages and see in them a picture of the life we knew here in 1939-40. CONTENTS ADMINISTRATION CLASSES ACTIVITIES ATHLETICSFirst we present to you the administration, those who have guided us throughout our high school work. Next we give you the graduating class of 1940, who after four years of “study and labor,” graduate into broader fields. After this we picture for you the social life and athletics which have always been such an important part in the life of an EHS student. NinoADMINISTRATION BOARD OF EDUCATION The school board, staying in the background of school affairs, plays an important part in keeping our school on the up-grade. Their duties, although wide and varied, have been performed in a workmanlike way. Among the recent improvements which they have brought about is the paving of the driveway and the finishing of the gym floor. They have also increased the size of the library and next year plan to provide a course in agriculture for those desiring to take it. Everything which they have done has had the idea behind it that it would benefit the students of EHS. For this we are grateful, and we sincerely hope that they will keep up the good work in future years. Retiring this year after sixteen years of service as a member of the board is Mrs. George Handlon. Having been a teacher in the Edwardsville Public Schools before retiring to private life, she realized better than anyone else the actual problems confronting the students and the instructors. For this reason she has seen many years of service on the Teachers’ Committee and it has been her work on this committee which has been of particular value to the rest of the board members. We sincerely hope that her retirement from tin board will not mean a discontinuance of relations with the school, but that she will continue to work with us. Ten James L. Reed. President; Clyde Fruit; Mrs. G. A. Handlon. Leonard Schwartz Edward A. Bollmann; A. E. Bayer. Secretary; R. C. CunninghamSuperintendent E. li. Alexander Principal I). It. Blodgett Vice-Principal J. J. Love Dean of Girls Elsie Sloan Xow completing liis “Junior” year in EHS, Mr. Alexander has become a true member of our “big happy family.” Well liked by the students for his friendly smile and hearty welcome, he has shown everyone what a capable superintendent he really is. Mr. Blodgett, principal of EHS, has shown during the past year what can be accomplished by a well-organized school system. As president of the Southwestern Conference he has also brought about many improvements in our athletic relations with the rest of the schools. Mr. Love, assistant to Mr. Blodgett, and also Dean of Boys, lends a hand wherever he is needed. Writing out excuses, conducting sales campaigns for the Athletic Association, and consulting with us about our problems are just a few of his duties. Well liked by all, he plays an important role in EHS activities. Miss Sloan, Dean of Girls, guides their activities in EHS. Kept busy by classes, directing plays, and writing out excuses, she still finds time to confer with the girls concerning their personal problems. ElevenMATHEMATICS rn recent years mathematics has come to play an increasingly important part in the life of an individual. For this reason the mathematical department of KHS has been considerably revised. For those desiring only the fundamental principles of math, such as addition and subtraction, practical math and mechanical drawing are offered. For those desiring to go a little farther into the subject, courses in algebra and plane geometry are available. These subjects are taught by Miss Virginia Harris and Mr. William Dragalin. Then, of course, there are other students who desire to major in the mathematical field. For them a broad course in trigonometry, solid geometry, and advanced algebra is offered under the direction of Mr. John Love. This plan of offering mathematics is in keeping with modern educational tendencies and appears to be working much better than the old system. DISCOVERINQ UNKNOWNS JOHN J.

You begin to appreciate the work of past scientists and the obstacles which they were forced to overcome before they were able to present their accomplishments to the world. Few people are able to teach science effectively, compared with the greater number of successful teachers in other fields. EIIS had one of these few in Mr. Berwyn Robinson, who resigned early in January to accept a position at Michigan State University. Although we were sorry to see him go, we were glad to see him get this opportunity which he had earned by his past efforts. He was succeeded, however, by another fine instructor, Mr. Don Lercher, who formerly taught in Farmington, 111. IS OUR SPECIALTY A. M. GIBSON Illinois Wesleyan. B. S.

This is just one of the interesting subjects which you are apt to hear discussed when you visit any of the social science classes. Sometimes the arguments become “quite hot” (especially in a certain northeast room), but nevertheless the opinions voiced and the topics discussed are very educational. Many students consider this course the most enlightening and interesting of any offered in High School. Of special interest this year was the experimental history class conducted by Mr. Wilson. Early in February a program was presented over radio station WTMV by students from this class. This not only was valuable experience to the participants but also showed the modern tendencies in education. BETTER LIVINQ FOR LYLE HENDERSON Eastern Illinois State Teacher’s College. B. Ed.

FourteenENGLISH Practically everyone realizes how important good English is to the successful person. Many of us, although we realize this fact, do not put it into use as often as we might. To correct this fault is one of the primary aims of the English department. The parts of speech, as well as other fundamental principles, are stressed by Miss Cheek in her Freshman and Sophomore classes. After the student has finished these courses the routine is changed and he receives the background of English literature under the direction of Miss Wood. These three years are required of every student but in his Senior year he is given the choice of taking either public speaking from Miss Jones or American literature from Miss Sloan. Such a method enables a student to get the fundamentals during his first three years and then specialize during his last year. EVERYONE IS OUR AIM WILMA J. JONES Drury College. Springfield. Mo.. A.

FifteenCOMMERCE Typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, and business law are just a few of the subjects offered by the commercial department. These subjects are offered principally for the students desiring to enter the business world upon graduation from high school or to those who are planning to enter business college. Registration in these courses however is not confined to those having such desires, because modern educators realize the importance of these subjects in fields which seem to be entirely unconnected with the business world. Commercial subjects are taught by a staff of four teachers. They are Miss Grace Davis, Miss Laurine Pierson, Miss Catherine Hoskins, and Mr. Harold Louderback. This staff has been responsible for the training received by many former students who have now successfully entered the commercial field.

These are: French and German, taught by Miss Adams, and Latin, taught by Miss Gewe. This variety of languages gives the student an opportunity to study not only the classics but also to become familiar with languages in common usage around the world. Many students have expressed a desire to study Spanish, the language which is becoming very useful in the commercial world. If this desire is maintained, it is possible that Spanish may be offered within the near future. COMMERCIAL FIELD, SEE US VERA ADAMS Southern Illinois Normal University, B. E.

SeventeenPHYSICAL EDUCATION The physical education department has two primary aims: first, to create good sportsmanship among the students, and, second, to teach them how to make the best possible use of their leisure time. To do this the program is arranged so that it will interest all types of students. Kveryone is required to take at least three years of physical education unless excused by a physician. The course is not required during the Senior year. The boys’ classes are under the direction of Mr. Smith, who is now completing his fourth year at WHS. The girls’ classes are under the direction of Miss Harlan, who is also the head of the art department. WE EXCEL IN SPORTSMANSHIP ESTHER HARLAN Illinois State Normal University. B. Ed. GLENN C. SMITH University of Missouri. B. S. EighteenHOME ECONOMICS AND OFFICE Fortunately the science of home making has not been forgotten in the rush of modern times. In fact, KHS has so realized the importance of this subject that plans have already been completed for the enlarging of the department next year. Instead of one instructor, as has been customary in the past, there will be two in charge of cooking, sewing, and home management. One of these teachers will also have charge of the noon lunch which in the past year was handled by an outside interest. I nder this set-up it may also be possible for a course in cooking to be organized for the boys as well as the girls. This was impossible in the past because of the already crowded conditions which existed in the department. With these arrangements KHS should have one of the leading home economics departments of this region. PRACTICAL TRAININQ IS OUR QOAL ■■M FRANCES TENDICK MacMurray College, B. S. NIGEL VOSS Offlco Secretary NineteenSENIORS JUNIORS SOPHOMORES FRESHMENPRESENTING THE CLASS OF ’40 Tn September, 1936, a wonderful thing happened. The Class of 1940 entered EHS. We of that class know that as Freshies we made a few mistakes, but of course we don’t admit it openly. We looked around awhile and EHS looked good to us, so we entered into things with a “bang.” We made a big impression that year (on ourselves). The Seniors and Juniors were too busy being proud of themselves to notice anything about us except that our class contained some wonderfully beautiful girls. We stumbled through our Freshman year, learning all we could in classes and outside of them too. Our Sophomore year we did pretty much the same as all Sophomore classes do. Not that we couldn’t do otherwise, but we didn’t like to let on that we were as precocious as we were. Our Junior year we blossomed out as upperclassmen with none of the restraints of underclassmen. We successfully produced the Junior Play and we put on a good Junior-Senior banquet. We were also seen more around school and we came to be accepted as somebody of importance. Now we are up on top. We are the highest form of school life. To put it into a few words, shall we say, “We are Seniors”? We may be considered snobbish by some underclassmen, but can you blame us if we are a bit proud? We have trod a long and varied path. We have kept our eyes on a goal and we have ventured forth through paths of joy and happiness, through pitfalls and througl. griefs and a bit of worry. But now as our Senior year draws to a close, we look back on a work well done, a scrap-book of pleasant memories, a challenge met, a goal attained. Now we venture forth into life, but we will always remember EHS.

That miracle was the Class of Ml. It is a miracle that any group of people as wonderful as we of this class could be crowded into one building. We started out unusually well; nobody was caught on any of the usual gags (those Seniors claim we did, but what is their word against ours?) After getting such a good start, we soon made ourselves at home in Edwardsville High’s big happy family. As Sophomores we got ourselves into and out of many jams, particularly at the Frosh-Soph party. We also had many of our class on the honor roll each six weeks and some of us were on the teams in sports and active in clubs. Xow at the present time we feel just as proud of ourselves as when that miracle entered the sacred halls of learning, that magnificent edifice of education, Edwardsville High School. We are still the top class out here (the Seniors, or stuck-ups, say they are best, but of course, we know that they are wrong). Next year EHS loses us. When we are gone it must struggle on without the Class of ’41 to help it (poor EHS).................. Don’t tell us, we know. That won’t be a struggle, that will be just a bubble on the quiet waters.

It’s an important one, at least we Sophomores think so. In case you don’t remember, that is when the wonderful Class of ’42 entered EHS. As Freshmen we made the usual blunders that all Freshmen make. However, we made them in an unusual manner, because we are an unusual class. After exploring the building the first week, we entered into school life in a big way. We met the enemy (our Freshman year) on the battlefield (EHS) and after a struggle lasting nine months we emerged victorious. We then rested for three months and engaged in our next major battle. We started it with vim and vigor and although it took another nine months’ siege, we had victory sewed up tightly in the proverbial bag after the first few days. After all, with a class like ours, that was the only possible outcome. The battle consisted of a series of encounters in class, clubs, athletic events, and parties, where we easily showed the other classes that they could not out-study, out-yell, out-play, or out-dance us. Having been assured of our victory in our Sophomore year, we feel confident that we can enter into the next two years and win those battles more easilv than the last two, and then enter into the next battle, the battle of life, and come out with victory clutched tightly in our hands, because we are an unusual class.

Yenne ForiyFRESHMEN “Please, Mr. Senior, that Sophomore there told me that tin elevator would take me to the third floor, but 1 can’t find it.” Did you hear the plaintive note in our wee-tiny voices as we innocently tried to find out what’s where and why about dear old KHS? Maybe it did take us a while to find out where to go, but we did. Most of us have learned by now that high school students .just don’t run in the halls. After a period of adjustment from life in Junior High, we soon found many activities open to us and into these we plunged headlong to find that high school has more possibilities than appeared the first two weeks of our new life. Aside from the various clubs, assemblies, lyceums, and athletic events, we took our first whirl at school parties when the Halloween party rolled around. Maybe we did tread on our partners’ toes instead of the beautiful gym floor, but after all it was our first school party. However, we practiced at tin matinee dances and when the Freshman-Sophomore party rolled around we had gotten past the point where it was appropriate for us to say, “Will you please lend me your frame for this struggle?” and could nonchalantly say, “(’ome on, worm, let’s wiggle.” All in all, we may have our drawbacks, but look at the upperclassmen. They were all Freshmen once. If they can improve that much, we can too. So with no apologies we say, “Give us time.” JEWELL NILSSON. President FAYE FRICKENSTEIN. Vice-President HAROLD BARTELS.

Colbert MIXED CHORUS QIRLS' QL EE CLUB The total membership of tin Glee Clubs this year was about 130. This included the girls’ section, which met twice a week on Monday and W ednesday, the boys’ section, which met on Tuesday and Thursday, and a limited part of both these groups, which met as the Mixed Chorus on Friday. Fifty-two This mixed chorus presented the annual operetta on December 7. The cast, the chorus, and particularly our new director, Mr. RalphShannon, worked very hard and steadily on this, and the result, “The Chimes of Normandy,” was more than worth it. Mr. Shannon, a graduate of Wesleyan University, came to us last fall from his former position in the grade schools. He stepped right into his new job in his typical efficient and enthusiastic manner, and quickly blended the variety of voices into a very satisfactory and harmonious result. The officers of the Glee Clubs were chosen again this year, in accordance with the custom begun last year. Elizabeth Crossman was chosen president of the Girls’ Glee Club; Mary Jane Mottar, the vice-president; and Mary Wayne, the secretary. For the Boys’ Glee Club, tin officers elected were Ed Haynes, president; Marvin Christman, vice-president; and Robert Colbert, secretary. The Mixed Chorus was headed by Kenneth Cassens, as president; Mary Eberhardt, vice-president; and Leland Buckley, secretary. These students have proved worthy of the confidence placed in them by their friends, and have likewise received some excellent co-operation from the groups. On April 12, the Southwestern Music Festival was held at Highland. This was a gathering of the clubs from most of the nearby towns. It was a continuation of the custom begun last year, with high hopes of making it an annual affair. The chorus as a whole was very fortunate in securing again the services of Nobel Cain, outstanding vocal director, for the guest conductor. The Glee Club department has grown considerably both in size and importance in school affairs during the past few years. It is to be hoped that through its influence more and more students will become aware of and interested in the value of music. BOYS’ QLEE CLUB Mr. Shannon. Snajdr, Richards. Belshaw. Gent, Burroughs.

A. plays an important part in many school affairs. The candy sales at the basketball games are under the supervision of this organization. Play-days are held at nearby towns for the girls, and this year we were able to hold one here at our own school. To these play days, girls from the G. A. A. organizations of all surrounding towns are invited, and the result is always a lot of fun with many new friendships formed. In order to be a member of this society, it is necessary for each girl to participate in at least two sports a year. It is the aim of the G. A. A. to further the girls’ interests in sports of all types and to develop good sportsmanship. We know that under the able leadership of Miss Harlan this aim is being accomplished with great success.

It not only gives enjoyment to its readers but also is beneficial to all students who are connected with it. If you are interested in journalism of any type, the school newspaper is the activity to join to get experience. This past school year the entire staff has tried to live up to the standards of an interesting and enjoyable school paper. We think we have been successful, but we never could have been so without the wonderful co-operation of the entire student body and faculty. We thank each and every student for his contribution and his co-operation with the E11S Tiger Tales.

All in all, “The Chimes of Normandy” will go down in the history of EHS as one of the most brilliant operettas ever presented.

LEAP YEAR PARTY Once every four years! That’s all, folks, so you had to grab your last chance to go to a Leap Year Party sponsored by our alma mater. It is always one of the highlights of the year (in the year it occurs) and with the Hi-Tri as sponsors it could not fail to be a terrific success. Music was furnished in the modern manner by Dar Stroud and his orchestra. The rest of the entertainment was furnished in the form of a program which featured a ballet dance by Joanna Goddard (our own Zorina), accompanied by Loretta Pizzini, two solos by Kenny Cassens (EHS’s Lanny Ross), accompanied by Ed Haynes (Fats Waller to you, folks), a tap dance by Mary Ann Trares (just call her Ginger Rogers), and Edwardsville’s own male quartet, composed of Gordon Burroughs, Marshall Wayne, Charles Richards, and Ralph Shannon. Punch and cookies were served by the P. T. A. Service Committee. SixtyWe Won The Prizes! HALLOWE’EN PARTY On the evening of October til a large crowd assembled in the gymnasium. The occasion was the annual Hallowe’en Party. The costumes were original and colorful and when the grand march started the judges realized that they would have a job picking out the winners. However, they finally arrived at the decision and prizes were awarded. Some of the most outstanding disguises were Clifford Schmidt as a Roman warrior, Mr. Wilson as a Mexican peon, Mr. Louderback, Miss Jones, and Miss Tendick as packages of cigarettes, Mr. Shannon, Mr. Kinsel, and Mr. Gibson as three characters from “The Wizard of Oz,” Don Schneider and Jared Xenmich as a horse of another color, M iss Voss as a firecracker, Dorothy Eickmann as a witch, and Dorothy Black as Dopey. Sixty-OneFOOTBALL Football Queen - - - Donna Bergschncldcr PROM On the evening of December 2, 1939, a gay, fun-seeking crowd assembled in the Kdwardsville High School Gym for one of the outstanding social events of the school year. The occasion was the 1939 Football Prom, a fitting finale to a successful football season. The program was opened by Tommie Wood, president of the Cheer Club, which sponsored the prom. Kenneth Cassens, acting as master of ceremonies, introduced Mr. Alexander, our well-liked superintendent of schools, who gave a short speech of welcome to the students. Next lvenny introduced Mr. Blodgett, principal of EHS, who also welcomed us to the prom. The next speaker was Coach Smith. In his speech he presented Ihe football lettermen with their “E’s”. A response to the presentation was given by Mel Golclasure, captain of the ’39 football team. In this response, Mel, acting for all twenty-one lettermen, presented Coach Smith and Assistant Coach Dragalin with presents. After the speeches were over, the lettermen retired to the hall, where they met the queen and her maids of honor. One by one the nineteen maids, each escorted by a letterman, gracefully traversed the long path from the hall, ascended the steps to the stage, went under a miniature goal post and assembled in two lines on each side of the throne. When this was done, the beautiful and gracious queen, Donna Bergschneider, ascended to her throne, preceded by Scotty Smith, carrying a football, and Marjorie Love, bearing the crown. Following her came Joan Kinsel and Barbara Blodgett, who acted as train bearers. Dancing to the music of Dar Stroud and his orchestra made the evening complete.

The band has seventy-one members this year. The sections are well balanced in number, having three flutes, twenty-one clarinets, five horns, five saxophones, one alto clarinet, one bass clarinet, one oboe, one cello, eight trombones, four baritones, two bassoons, six basses, nine cornets, and six drums. Music lovers enjoyed a concert on April 28, given by the band and glee clubs. The following numbers were played: “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Men of Ohio,” “Stradella,” “Xiobe,” “Star Dust,” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” Each year the band invites another band to come to the school and give a concert. This year the Illinois Wesleyan Band, under the direction of Mr. Ross, played a concert for the students of EHS. The Collinsville Band and our own Junior High School Band were also invited. At the beginning of each new year the band members elect new officers for the coming year. This year Marvin Christman was elected president, Wilbur Volz vice-president, and Bill Wolf secretary-treasurer. These officers plan the social affairs of the band and discuss trips that the band makes. Each spring a party is also held for the band members and their friends. The band also gave two other concerts during the year, one for the Parent-Teacher meeting and another one in combination with all the music organizations of the public school system.

Margaret, who is a sophomore in school, did a wonderful job and she deserves a lot of credit for it. Marching along with the band was a group of twenty baton twirlers who were led by Ellen Shillato. The girls twirling wore dark skirts, white shirts, and wide orange sashes. They formed various letters, sometimes with the band and sometimes by themselves. The band formed various letters and symbols for their team and opponents, always ending up in front of the Edwardsville grandstand, playing “Loyalty” or “Tiger Rag.” They were often introduced by a trumpet fanfare consisting of nine trumpets. The band also played a large part in the homecoming game. In the afternoon they led the students in a parade and at the game in tin evening they were introduced on the field by the previously mentioned trumpet fanfare. Marching out they spelled “Alumni” and then went into a large “T” while they played “Tiger Hag.” After the game a large dance was held in the gymnasium and it was attended by not only a large group of students but also a large gathering of alumni and townspeople. Another activity which tin band participated in was tin basketball season. Their snappy tunes in between quarters and halves of the game went a long way towards making the season a success. The band worked hard on their formations, but the interest and appreciation showed them by their audiences made the time spent well worth while. Sixty-Eight Margaret Ruth StewartMr. Shannon This year our music director was Mr. Ralph Shannon, who succeeded Mr. Fred Weber. Mr. Shannon received his Bachelor of Music degree at the Illinois Wesleyan University and formerly taught the Edwardsville Junior High School Band for two years before coining to the high school. Mr. Shannon has proved a very capable director and his personality lias helped a lot along with liis great knowledge of music. Both Mr. and Mrs. Shannon have taken part in musical organizations in this vicinity. Mr. Shannon is always ready and willing to help anyone who wishes extra help. He is well liked and we hope that he will continue teaching here for many years.

Instead of going to the library from study halls, students were assigned a period in the library each day. While this method had its drawbacks, it was a big improvement over the old way and should improve 100 per cent next year. Miss Edna Weir was in charge of the library and her assistants were Mrs. Birdie Goetz and Mrs. Lorean Barth. Important to any school is the janitor service. EHS is lucky in having three men who have done their work well in the past and who will undoubtedly continue to do so in future years. Mr. Bayer is head janitor and his two assistants are Mr. Werner and Mr. Soehlke. Remember The Back Room Fellows? SeventyP. H. KINSEL'S ANNUAL BOYS’ TOUR Tliis summer’s trip to New Orleans, Pensacola, Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico will be Mr. Kinsel’s sixth “Boys’ Camping Tour.” These trips have taken the boys to many of America’s interesting cities and historic spots, to cities as different as New York and Denver, Richmond, Virginia, and Cleveland, Ohio, Lexington, Kentucky, and Philadelphia, Baltimore and Charleston, West Virginia; to the historically famous towns of Jamestown, where the first Knglisli Colonists landed in 1G07, Yorlctown, where Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington, and to the beautifully restored colonial town of Williamsburg. The boys have camped in both the Rocky and the Appalachian mountains, beside such famous rivers as the Hudson, the Ohio, the James, the Susquehanna, and the Potomac. They have gone swimming (Continued on Page 99) Seventy-OneQood sportsmanship, physical develop-ment, and clean un are the aims of the athletic department. This work is carried on not only in inter-school competition hut also in the intramural program of EHS. Seventy-fwG■■■ FOOTBALL 1939 Go aches KIIS can well be proud of its two tine football coaches, Coach Smith and Assistant Coach Win. Dragalin. Coach Smith was the guiding hand of the varsity team, while Assistant Coach Dragalin, coaching his first year of football, had charge of HteJ?igerettes. Coach Smith, in his fourth year here as head coach, again showed the boys what a fine kll-round fellow and leader he was, even though this year’s edition of the Tiger gridders didn’t boast of such a tine record, finishing the conference season in a tie for fifth place. With the development of younger material, especially the backfield, Coach Smith should be rewarded for his patience and labor with a fine football machine next year. Coach Glenn Smith Assistant Coach Wm. Dr K ltn FOOTBALL SEASON — RESUME EDWARDSVILLE—0 GILLESPIE—18 The 1939 Tigers opened their season with an inexperienced backfield, and in general, the caliber of our team was unknown. Gillespie, with a fast line and a sparkling backfield composed of four lettermen, ripped and tore through the Tiger defense for three touchdowns, while EHS couldn’t hit the pay dirt due to the splendid line backing of the Gillespie backfield. EDWARDSVILLE—12 WOOD RIVER—9 In the face of a cold north wind and a driving rain the team journeyed to Wood River for their first conference battle. Playing bang-up ball the Tigers blocked an Oiler kick and within five minutes Martin had scored the Tigers’ first touchdown. Not to be outdone. Wood River came back with a touchdown and a safety and then in a thrilling fourth quarter, EHS scored again, and held Wood River for downs on the goal line as the final gun sounded. EDWARDSVILLE—0 BELLEVILLE—12 Playing on Belleville’s home field, the Tigers put up a good fight and lost out to their heavier and more experienced opponents in a game which was much closer than the score indicates. The team got off to a bad start when a fumble was recovered by the Maroons on the first play, three goal line drives were repulsed before Belleville finally scored late in the first quarter and followed up with an intercepted pass good for their second tally in the first half. At half time the Tigers came to life and took the offensive, holding Belleville scoreless and almost scoring themselves several times. (Continued on Page 100) Seventy-FiveKrejcl. Land a. Menoni, Martin. Kuethe. Abel. Lankford, Suchy, Gregor LETTERMEN Eugene Krejci, ’41 (Back)—“Krejci” is next year’s co-captain. He was a speedy backfield man and gave the Tiger backfield a lot of power and drive. Joe Lauda, ’40 (Center)—“Joe” was the reserve center and usually did a fine job of backing up the line and carrying out plays to the letter. (Continued On Page 107) Seventy-SixColclasure. Bayer. Kolesa. Davis. Dees. Irvin. Metzger. Bettman. Volz LETTERMEN Mol Colclasure, 40 (Tackle)—Captain Colclasure was a hard fighter and was one of the best all-around tacklers and blockers that K1IS has produced for some time. Mel was the mainstay of the team and was honored by being named Captain of the Conference All-Star team. Logan Bayer, ’40 (Guard)—'“Bayer” finished his third year of football this season. lie was a good line backer and blocker and turned in some fine football exhibitions during his Tiger football career.

Metzger LETTERMEN ----------(Continued From Page Seventy-Seven) Frank Kolesa, ’40 (Back)—“Frankie”, though rather light and small, was fleet of foot and could lower his head and run the line like a tank. lie could always be counted on for a few yards through the line and he gave a fine showing of line plunging in the Alton game. Percy Davis, ’40 (Back)—“Percy” was a speedy hack and was hard to stop. He was shifty and level-headed and made a fine reserve for Coach Smith to call on in time of need. He played a fine game at Wood River. Art Dees, ’40 (Back)—“Art” was another one of the lightweights in this year’s backfield. He was shifty and could call signals if the situation demanded. Ralph Irvin, ’40 (End)—“Ace”, like so many of the 1939 gridders, was hampered by his light weight but he made up in fight what he lacked in weight. He was a good pass receiver and alternated at end with Abel and Bettman. Wayne Metzger, ’40 (Guard)—“Metz” was light but plucky and possessed a lot of speed and drive. He was an experienced lineman and sometimes dropped back to the backfield in case of an emergency. Thus he was a valuable fellow to have around. August Bettman, ’40 (End)—“Slick” was a six-footer and a good end. He was a fair pass receiver, speedy and almost always drew a starting assignment. He helped buoy up the Tiger defense. Wilbur Volz, ’41 (Back)—“Wib” though not a flashy star, was a strong steady dependable worker and Coach Smith could always count on him to give his best. He tackled and blocked hard and should develop well next year. Seventy-Eight ♦ L-HOMECOMINQ PARADE The Second Annual Homecoming parade was a huge success and floats were entered by the Tiger Staff, G. A. A., and most of the other organizations and clubs of the High School. Led by the High School Band, the array of floats passed down St. Louis street and up Main street to the court house, where a cheer meeting and rally was held for the Homecoming game with Alton.

Such teams as Litchfield, Granite City, Collinsville, Livingston, and Wood River were on the schedule and other teams in the state which would offer much stiffer opposition for the Tigers are few and far between. The local quintet was composed of younger players who should “go places” next year under the skillful guidance of Coach Smith. The season got off to a good start with several impressive victories over some smaller schools in the vicinity and then the conference schedule got under way and Belleville was the Tiger’s first con Terence victim. Coming back from the Christmas vacation with high spirits and renewed zeal, the boys made a New Year’s resolution to beat the high flying Wood River Oilers and in a fine game they did that very tiling. The remainder of the schedule was high-lighted by the close game with Granite, the last minute victory over Collinsville, and the Regional Tournament which was held in the Edwardsville gym.

BASKETBALL LETTERMEN Virgil Abel ’40—“Squirt” was ranked on the all-conference team last year and was even better this year. His dribbling, shooting, and passing was usually the feature of the game and without a doubt he is one of the better players ever to see action in a Tiger uniform. Dennis Aylward ’41—“Denny” was a newcomer on the first five and a great team man. He was a good rebound man and his floor work under the basket was above average. Denny was a good shot but seldom could Coach Smith persuade him to shoot as he would rather pass to a teammate. Everett Baird ’41—“Dec” was fast and shifty and was a clever ball handler. He broke into the starting lineup near the middle of the season and played some good ball until injured in the Madison game. August Bettman ’40—“Slick” came out for the team this year and surprised everyone with his rapid development. He was slow to get going hut his height enabled him to do a good job of rebounding and “tipping.” Art Dees ’40—Art was light, fast, and speedy and had plenty of fight. He was usually very cool and calm and was a good long shot and fast break man, and his experience made him a valuable man to have around.

Be-thalto was the victim of the Tigers in their first game but the locals were eliminated in the semi-final game by Granite City, who later went on to win the State Tournament at Champaign. In the Granite game the Tigers battled gamely for the first half but the powerful Warriors were too much for them. Tigers 42 Tigers 27 Bethalto 23 Granite City 5(5 Eight-ThreeCoach Smith. Burrus.

Manager Dierkes TRACK With the coming of spring, basketball was forgotten and the boys, under the direction of Coach Smith, were seen scampering around the track in preparation for quite a number of meets on the cinder oval. Due to bad weather, practice was limited before the first meet and the squad dropped a tri angular meet at Wood River to Hast St. Louis, although they nosed out the host team 28 1 3-21 1 3. The next meet was with a powerful Belleville team which tied for top conference honors with East St. Louis and the Tigers failed in the dashes and lost out 76-46. The team then came to life with last event victories over Wood River and a 62-60 triumph over our arch-rival Collinsville. In the conference relays the Tigers had some bad breaks and finished fifth with a total of 28 points. Granite City and Wood River then edged out our boys in a thriller in which only 2 1 3 points separated all three teams. In the District and State meets the Bengals were unable to get going and in the final conference meet they finished fourth to East Side, Belleville, and Granite City. Edgar Henke and Gene Wehling showed brilliant form in tin? dashes, while Bob Adamick, Bill Martin, Percy Davis, and Warren Kerckhoff did fine work in the mile, high jump, 440 dash and broad jump, respectively. This year’s Junior team was second in the conference and should provide a good reservoir of track material for next season. Eighty-FourCoach Love. Meyer. Black. Irvin. Stevens. Leonard TENNIS This year, after a lapse in spirit, the enthusiasm over tennis increased and quite a number of matches were held with rival schools. The fall tennis schedule had to be abandoned this year due to lack of enough courts for practice and the poor condition of the available courts. Thus, the circumstances prevailing made it difficult to develop seasoned players. Calvin Stevens and dim Leonard, a pair of Sophomores, had the best record on the squad, winning almost all of their matches, while Kalpli Irvin and Charles Kane paired in the number one doubles, and Captain Godfrey and Kay Marks played the single matches. The team engaged in matches with Greenville, Granite City, Belleville, Collinsville, Western Military, and many other surrounding schools and completed the season with only three losses chalked against them. Although the team had a fine record, they had bad luck in tournament play and received a fourth place conference ranking and a fifth place district ranking. Eighty-FiveGrosenheider. Stafford. Rozum Coach Gibson, B. Schmidt. Rozum. Stafford, Lane R. Schmidt, Turner. Grosenheider. Sperandlo, Walters WRESTL1NQ Wrestling did not become a sport at EHS until four years ago and up to the present the team lacked experienced mat men and had had three very dismal and disheartening seasons, winning only one or two matches in three years. This year, under the coaching of Mr. Gibson, a fine lot of sturdy young hopefuls appeared upon the mats and with lettermen from previous years a powerful wrestling team was developed. Enthusiasm also increased and it seemed that wrestling was to have its first good season at Edwardsville High. Home and away matches were held with such outstanding schools as Highland, Western Military Academy, and Madison, while Ferguson —the Missouri State Champs—were also engaged by the Tigers. Out of the eight matches only two were lost and these by very close margins, so the season was a great success. Younger boys made up this year’s squad and with most of them returning the teams should do well in the future.

(Continued on Page 113) SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY ( Ten Years From Now I As each person of the 1940 Senior Class steps before our crystal ball, we are able to see exactly what he will be doing ten years from now, which will be that wonderful year of 1950. As the students of today pass the magic crystal, the teachers also take their respective places to see what they will be doing in the great year of 1950. We have had immense enjoyment out of seeing what each person in PI H. S. will be doing ten long years from today, so we shall now tell you what this magic crystal ball has told us: The first person who passes by the crystal is Virgil Abel, who is introducing the Alcrataz hair-cut style in India. Mahatma Ghandi seems to like it quite well. We see Virginia Abendroth still trying to find a permanent black dye for her red hair. Pretty soon her hair will be grey from worry. Robert Adamick is living happily on a farm with a wife and children and not giving a “darn” about politics. Kenneth Albrecht next steps before the crystal ball, and he is taking P. G. (post graduate, to you) courses so that he may be one out of one boys in his shorthand class.

They have boarded and explored the largest boats in the world, the Queen Mary and the Normandie, stood in the head of the Statue of Liberty, and looked down upon New York City from the heights of the Empire State Building. Wall Street, Fifth Avenue, the Great White Way, Park Avenue—all recall familiar scenes. Many of the boys saw their first typical blue grass horse farm when they visited “Man () War” in Kentucky. These boys will not soon forget West Point on the Hudson, the Niagara Falls, Congress in session, the White House, and the Nation’s Capital. But there is much more to these trips than merely seeing things and places. These are often of a lighter and more personal nature. Incidents within the camp at night. We have heard rumors indicating that occasionally one of the boys awakens in the morning to find himself on his cot in a field some distance from camp. There are special techniques used to arouse late sleepers; materials applied to obscure parts of cots to prevent the sleeper from being too comfortable. The organization of a bodyguard to protect some of the handsome brutes in the group from strange girls is an absolute necessity. There are other rumors but the boys prefer them to be a closed secret. The days spent on the “Boy’s Camping Tour” are days of fun, mixed unconsciously with geography and history, and certainly, many boys have at least had a glimpse of how the “other half” live. Ninety-NineFOOTBALL SEASON — RESUME (Continued From Page 75) EDWARDSVILLE—0 ALTON—6 On a perfect football night before a capacity Homecoming throng, Alton defeated the Tigers 6-0 in a nip and tuck affair. The majority of the first three quarters was a combination punting duel and a waiting game between the two teams. At the close of the third period the Hilltoppers capitalized on a break and scored the game’s only marker. The fourth quarter was a furious affair with EHS making a determined downfield march only to be repulsed on the two-yard stripe as the game ended. EDWARDSVILLE—6 COLLINSVILLE—18 In the annual renewal of the EHS-Collinsville rivalry, in the Collinsville Bowi, Collinsville played one of their best games of the year to down the Tigers. Boasting of a speedy little Negro backfield star, the Kahoks got revenge for last year's plastering by passing the Tigers dizzy, all of their three touchdowns coming on long passes. Late in the third quarter, with the score tied 6-6, Collinsville’s passing attack started to click and it was then they left our Tigers behind. EDWARDSVILLE—0 GRANITE CITY—0 Granite City brought to Edwardsville a fair team which was not up to the usual standard of Granite City teams. The game lacked scores, but made up for them with thrills, due to many intercepted passes, fumbles and funny “misplays” by both teams. Neither team came very close to scoring and here again the Tiger backfield showed that it lacked that final “punch” within the third-yard line. (Continued on Page 104) Compliments of Mottar Drug Co.

The game then dissolved into a punting duel and the EHS offense which “clicked” so well on the first few plays failed to get going again during the entire game. It was late in the last half of this contest that Captain Mel Colclasure met with the misfortune of having his front teeth kicked out during a scramble for the ball. EDWARDSVILLE—0 EAST ST. LOUIS—20 East St. Louis brought to Edwardsville a power-house team of experienced letter-men who, with Alton, finished in a tie for the Southwestern Conference championship. EHS took the kickoff and did quite well on the first few plays, until the Flyer’s obtained possession of the ball and the “jig” was up as East Side boys rushed across two scores before the half. At the half, the Tigers braced and played heads-up ball, holding the Flyers to one touchdown and thus ending their pigskin campaign for 1939.

Main St. Dr. Wayne B. Cox Extends Hearty Congratulations to the CLASS OF 1940 One Hundred SixLETTERMEN (Continued From Page 76) Leonard Menoni, ’41 (Center)—“Len” finished his second year as the varsity center. He did a fine job of line backing and his height helped bolster the pass defense. He is one of next year’s co-captains. Bill Martin, ’41 (Back)—“Bill” is another one of the returning backs. He was fast and shifty, but was hampered by his light weight. Melvin Kuetlie, ’41 (Guard)—“Couthy,” as he was known to the boys, was a hard lighter. He blocked hard and sometimes got a little rough with the opponents. He helped keep up the spirit and morale of the team. Virgil Abel, ’40 (End)—“Squirt” held down one of the end positions, a good pass receiver and an experienced veteran. He held the team together and sometimes called signals. Harold Lankford, ’42 (Tackle)—“Lank” was a newcomer on the first team. He played his line position well and frequently drove through the opponent’s line. He has two more years ahead of him and should do well in the future. Charles Kuchy, ’40 (Tackle)—“Suehy,” a two hundred pounder, came out for the first time this season. He was fairly fast for his size and soon made the first team with his ability to plug a hole and bolster the Tiger line. Maurice Gregor, ’42 (Back)—“Tootie” had pretty good size and fitted nicely info the Tiger backfield. He was a good blocker and possessed a lot of speed. However, towards the close of the season he received an arm injury, which kept him out of action.

His rebounding was good and his experience gained last year in the tournaments stood him in good stead. Hill Martin ’41—“Hill” was the captain of this year’s squad, an unusual occurrence due to his being a Junior. He was a little slow but as a rule ho could be counted on for a good game and his team work made for unison on the team. ilbur olz ’41—“Wib” developed slowly and it wasn’t until the middle of January that he came into his own. He was fast and shifty and an excellent dribbler and after “Squirt’s” graduation he was the mainstay of the team, both in fight and scoring power.

Eleanora Barone is still telling everyone that her fur coat is old. It looks new to us. Clarice Bartels is seen taking her sister, Melba, to the dentist every other day. Wonder if Dr. Murl N. could be the reason! Mary Bast is playing hookey from school and going to the American Legion Park to read a book under a shade tree. Next our magic ball tells us that Earl Baughman is manager of Silverbloom’s and the store is going to the wall because “Butch” requires all his employees to be straight “A” students. Logan Bayer is seen playing the part of Harry Chin from Beardstown. Razor blades are cheap. Logan. Helen Beck still can’t make up her mind whether to quit school in favor of a job or not. She’d better make up her mind soon. Jeanette Behrendt is teaching a class in E. H. S. on “How Not To Stutter.” Next we see a girl laboring hard to obtain her one-hundred words a minute in shorthand. This girl is none other than our own Luetta Bekemeyer. James Belshaw is a man of leisure, because he is such a “Romeo” in Glen that the girls couldn’t bear to see Jim doing manual labor. Donna Bergsclineider is waiting for Leap Year (1952) to come around so that she can get Harlowe to say “Yes.” Good luck! Augie Bettman is playing more and more basketball, but after ten years of playing, he says it is getting a little boring. What’s your trouble, “Flash”? The next person who steps before the crystal ball is Dorothy Black. Dorothy has decided to reform a bit, and not go to every one of Joe Ladd’s dances. (She now misses one every week.) Eileen Braundmeier and Eileen Brandt (Continued on Next Page) One Hundred Twen+y-OneSenior Class Prophecy (Continued From Preceding Page) are working together in their beauty shop called, “The Eileen Miracle Shop.” They are making scads of money on their new kind of permanent wave. This wave is both machineless and wireless. Clarence Brew has moved all his belongings into room 305 because he can’t see any chance of ever passing Chemistry without Robbie. Gladys Mae Brooks is playing the part of the fat lady in Ringling Brothers. Barnum and Bailey Circus, and is getting a big “bang” out of it. Next in line we see Wendell Browning, who is still longing to get a date with his dream girl. Why not give him a break, Pat? Our crystal ball tells us that Leland Buckley has become a prominent lawyer, but still can’t decide between his two old flames in high school. Which shall it be, Buck? Roy Buddhu is still trying to court Jane Starkey, but it seems as if she won’t give him a chance. Here we have something new in the way of prophets, because Georganna Burgdorf has become a room-temperature prophet. She knows exactly how far to move the window to change the room-temperature a degree. And speaking of temperatures, here is Kenny Cassens trying desperately to air-condition the city of Edwardsville so that it will have the same temperature the year round. Mary Caulk is eating her heart out because her grade school flame, M. C., has moved to Granite. She says she is sure of being an old maid now. . rl Marvin Christman has introduced the fad of putting compasses on all grapefruit so that the eater wrill be able to direct the juice from his eyes. You are sure to see Mary sitting on the south side of the table. (Continued on Page 124) Compliments of Compliments of Edwardsville Lumber Co.

Wayne Ciine now steps before the magic ball and we see that he has bitten his finger nails so much that now they are to the stage where they won’t grow any more, so he wears artificial ones to have something to chew on. One of our ex-grads has taken up the vocation of demonstrating how to smoke cigars. They tell me that he smokes ten cigars a day. What a man!! This man is none other than Bob Colbert. Melvin Colclasure is having a let of trouble with his artificial teeth and has brought a law suit against E. H. S. for damages. Next to have his future told is Orville Cooper. Orville hasn’t said any more than “Yes” or “No” for the past ten years. The graduating class of 15)40 is taking up a collection to have speech-records made for Orville to lend variety to his “Yes’s” and “No’s”. Lois Cory is now a grey-headed girl at twenty-seven from so much worry about keeping Marvin. She has so much competition, you know. Wayne Cox hasn’t come out of hibernation yet. He was discharged in 15)40 in a “Battle of Wits” because he had the lowest score. He now feels that life is a complete failure. Joe Crane is seen on the streets of Edwardsville selling “non-spit” egg-beaters to his former girl class-mates who have become housewives. Billie Crockroft has become nationally known as a Jitterbug and is dancing in New York. His favorite dance step is the “Glen Carbon Hop.” Next coming up is our ever popular Elizabeth Crossman. The crystal ball tells us she is seen living lavishly off the money that was turned in to her for 1940 Tigers. However, Elizabeth is still the best-liked girl that ever was in E. H. S. Percy Davis has taken over the Shoe Repair work and says that he has a lowly job. Get it? Next we see Art Dees still trying desperately to “make one more basket” before leaving the gym. You’d hardly recognize Art now because his face is red and swollen from being slapped and he has had rabbit fever from scratches. Whose fault is that? The magic ball now tells us that Jean Dunn is secretary of the Troy Lumber Company, but not for long. You’ve heard the old saying, “Marry the boss’ son.” Well, that is what Jean will do in June. Mary Eberhart is always having heated arguments with J. D. as to clothes. It seems that they are still buying the same style suits. Edna Evans was short on money last Wednesday, so she took the gold off her front tooth and got $10 for it at a pawn-shop. Now she is worrying what to do for a tooth. Harriet Henderson is now living in Wood River and is quite happy in her new home. She and her Fox get along fine and never have a scrap with each other. Marion Hilla took a trip to Hawaii and got so infatuated with the climate (?) that her Romeo can’t get her to come home. Tell us all about it, Marion. Elina Henke is still living in the glory of being a maid-of-honor at the Football Prom her last year of high school. Don’t let them tease you, Elina, it was an honor. Rose Henry is still holding out as to who her S. P. (secret passion) is. We won’t even make a guess but Rose blushes when we mention it to her. John Herman has just signed a contract with Famous-Barr Company to construct all the little (the big ones, too) airplanes for their toy department. This is the next best thing to being a real airplane manufacturer. Harriet Hildenstein spends all her spare time in Lore’s Beauty Shop. This way she gets a rest from her social activities and catches up on all the gossip. One Hundred Twenty-Four (Continued on Page 125)Compliments of Senior Class Prophecy (Continued From Page 124) Our crystal ball now takes us to Stanley Hittner, and tells us strange things about him. This is that Stanley has introduced the newest fad for men which is that of wearing backless tuxedos. Helen Holder has devoted her life to the Catholic Church. Margaret Honchak has become chief speed-test checker for Miss Hoskins. After ten long years of it. Margaret says she can make perfect circles around errors. This proves that Giotto wasn’t the only perfect circle man. Lee Hudson is seen every Saturday night on a soap box in front of the Court House crying “Down with women! All they want is money, money, money!” Margaret Ingram is trying to convince the people of Brazil that what they need to do is drink “Postum”. Her sales aren’t going so well and she can’t understand why. Shhhh! Don’t anyone tell her Brazil is noted for its coffee. Fred Feldworth is doing quite well in the match business—not the kind of matches you make when you marry, but the kind you light cigarettes with. Mary Feldworth is in the ear-muff business and is trying to persuade the Edwardsville folks to wear ear-muffs the year round. Mary knows what it is to have frozen ears. The next girl to step before the magic crystal is Marion Fink. She is now the proud wife of Lieutenant Stubbs. Maime writes home that they are really “flying high”. Ah! here we see another of ’40 graduates who has been led to the altar. The crystal tells us that Evelyn Fischer has just returned from her honeymoon in Bermuda with Jim M.

Mercury and Lincoln Zephyr Dealers Senior Class Prophecy (Continued From Page 125) As the 1940 graduates come and go before the magic ball we see that Ray Fitzpatrick is quite hen-pecked since his marriage to I. Frey. He says that soon he will become so hen-pecked that he will “frey”. Cletus Foehrkalb is standing on his front porch. His door key won’t work because some ten years ago he let Mr. lurcher coat it with copper. Henry Foehrkalb, in the years between 1940 and 1950, has become so fat that he resigned as usher at the “Wildey” because he no longer could get down the aisles. Poor Henry. We see where Mary Lou Francis has married Joyce B. and has firmly decided to settle down and become the ideal wife. More power to you. Mary. Richard Gerdt has discovered a way of spraying the designs on wall-paper after it is on the wall. His only trouble is that it runs off. Pat Giese is seen working in Frank Vanzo’s famous cocktail lounge and is trying to marry the boss. Next we see Alfred Gildersleeve. Now the crystal ball says that Alfred “he” is a fine boy and “this here” crystal doesn’t lie, but the one thing that has caused A1 to be somewhat of a failure is his dramatical errors. Harriet and Marguerite Glaeser have taken up singing as a profession. They call themselves the “Echo Sisters” and their songs are really coming back to them. Edwardsville High has asked Marie Gonezeski to come to one of their assemply programs and talk on “Good times had at the Kid Party.” Charles Graham has become the President of the “Honey-flavored” Graham Cracker Company. He makes talks on the radio, and his slogan is “Eat a ‘Graham’ while you listen to Graham.” Now we see Elvina (Continued on Next Page) One Hundred Twenty-NineSenior Class Prophecy (Continued. From Preceding Page) Harrison in Africa and all those black people there looking at her with awe because of her blond hair. Edna Mae Hartung has formed a club. Its greatest aim is to persuade people not to drink on New Year’s Eve. Edna Mae has thought about the subject until she has become a fanatic. Edwin Haynes has gone to Hollywood and is playing in very dramatic scenes. Edwardsville High is quite proud to have had such a genius in their midst. The magic ball now takes us to Worden where Florence Heinemeier is the Shorthand teacher in the Worden High School. She keeps her students guessing all the time because they don’t seem to be able to hear all she says. Next to face the magic ball is Ralph Irvin who has just come from the Olympic games with very low records. Ralph is all broken up about it. Can you still cry on E. C.’s shoulder, Ralph? John Jaros is the super-super salesman for the Burma-Shave people. More whiskers off the chin and on the razor these days! Margaret Jarrett has chosen making speeches entitled “How to Get In and Out of a Girls’ Locker-Room”, to high school students as a profession. This was one of Margaret’s first speeches in a Public Speaking class in ’40. She’s still at it, folks. Peggy Jones is no longer the sweet, innocent little girl, but she is now the head waitress in the new “High-Hat Nite Club” recently established in Glen Carbon, Illinois. Bessie Jenkins is being driven to the new night club by her new chauffeur. Some style! Eh, what? Marion Jennrng’s heart and interests still lie in Wood River.

Illinois Senior Class Prophecy (Continued From Page 130) Wood River young man. Better luck soon, Marion. Our crystal ball tells us that Cletus Kennedy is in the “Sea of Terrors” catching swordfish. He claims that the reason for catching so many such monsters is because he sings the famous fish song of his high school days, “Hold Tight”. Warren Kerckhoff is managing a basketball team. He calls the team “The Speeders”. The boys run from one end of the gym to the other so fast that you see them at both ends at the same time. Evelyn Klaus is now married to the “one and only” and is seen sitting at home darning socks in the evenings. She seems to believe in the old saying, “A woman’s place is in the home.” Gerald Klingel is trying to put all telephone wires under ground so that flyers won’t get quite such a thrill. Virginia Koenig is the only E. H. S. grad of 1940 who has adopted the latest fad of having the seam in silk stockings in the front. Frank Kolesa is now the manager for his little cousin, “Sonny” Kole. “Sonny” and Frank make up a two-man team in every sport there is. Charles Kovarik is serving his fourth day as President of the Senate. He is desperately wondering how much longer he will be able to stay without being impeached. Does history repeat itself? Marian Krejci now steps before the crystal ball to be told that she is the private secretary to the General Manager of the Wool-worth Company. Marcella Kreutzberg was the only survivor out of 300, when a hotel in which she was staying over night burned. Florence Kritcka has formed (Continued on Next Page) One Hundred Thirty-ThreeSenior Class Prophecy (Continued. From Preceding Page) an association in which she gives advice to the “love-lorn.” Helen Landa has taken the place of the girl who used to dance for Hitler. Joseph Landa is writing a column in the “I” on “How to Keep Your Hair Curly.” Hazel Landrus is now the Worthy Matron of the Edwardsville Chapter of the Eastern Star. Thornton Lane is in Hollywood and living a very gay life. (He black-mailed the lame Sisters so he wouldn’t tell he was their hillbilly brother, and now he has made good and won’t recognize them.) Hazel Iangwisch has become a singing usher at the Fox theater in St. Louis. Doris Lawyer has made her millions with her invention of “non-skid” napkins. (You know—the kind that stay on your lap instead of on the floor.) Virginia Lee is promoting a greater (and safer) highway between Greenville and Edwardsville. We don’t blame her. Earl Leitner is the human adding machine for Scrooge. William Leitner has become the assistant editor for the “Gumps” who appear in every comic paper all ever the world. Our magic hall points to another inventor who is Floyd Macke. Floyd had invented a kind of candy which won’t let women lose their figures. He has to guard his formula day and night. Robert Mateer is known the world ever for his famous joke (?) book. Edna Meikamp is quite proud because she has just received the first prize for submitting the best letter on “I use Oxydol because...........”. Dorothy Metzger has opened a duck-race track. This track is operated on the same principal as a horse-race track. Wayne Metzger has become head reporter for the “Intelligencer”. He now gathers the news instead of spreading it as he did in 1940. Next our magic ball tells us of some dancers. These are Doris Meyer and Lorene Meyer who are taking lessons from Sally Rand on how to dance and dance right. Vera Meyer has become a model for “Admiration Hose”. Edward Meyer has now invented cars that don’t have to be cranked before starting. Our crystal ball tells us now that Mary Jane Mottar is the second Jeanette McDonald. They say that the people just flock to hear her sing. Paul Mueller has taken over D. R. Blodgett’s position in the Edwardsville High School. Dolores Muzik sits in Cargenie Hall with her lorgnette, listening to music. After leaving E. H. S. Shirley Neuenschwander was given a tour of the world. She got as far as the South Sea Islands and she’s still there. Next our magic ball tells us of a medical person who is Devere Neutzling, a famous doctor known the world over for his work at Mayo Brothers Clinic. Instead of just visiting Long Lake, Margaret Nord has built her home there. Russel Oettel, Olin Ostendorf, and Eugene Puncher are constructing a swinging bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, so that the poorer class of people may drive over it and still get the idea of being sea-sick. Irene Opel has opened a dance hall at the Worden Wye and Fern Reid vamps in the customers. They tell us that they specialize in Jitterbug dancing. Marion Ostendorf is still collecting rings, but that one she received in ’40 still means the most to her. Gloria Piazzi has finally become so well educated that she runs a girls’ school and teaches everything herself. Hazel Poos is seen telling bedtime stories on the “Twilight Hour” over station NITE. Continuing we see John Rishel, who is another determined statesman, who stands at the helm of a nation and dares the world to raise an unfriendly finger. Mary Ellen Rosinos is trying to start up a Matrimonial (Continued on Next Page) One Hundred Thirty-FourSenior Class Prophecy (Continued From Preceding Page) Bureau better than that of Judge Mart’s, and is trying to run him out of business. Mary Ellen Rowekamp is giving a course to all “newlyweds” on “Married Life,” while at the same time Roberta Rutz, who has gone in for a different career, is a model for women’s underwear at Keim’s. Next we see where Leroy Scheibal sells shoe-strings and penny pencils at the 5 10 cent store corner. Our crystal ball tells us that Betty Schierbaum has turned the ideal “bachelor girl”, complete with her cats. Lee Schlemer has taken a political stand in life and has become a Communist and is trying to overthrow the government. Leo Schmidt, taking the smart attitude towards life has married the boss’ daughter and now sits with his feet on the desk, smoking big black cigars. Next to step before the magic crystal ball is Viola Schmidt. It tells us that Viola has become a manicurist in order that she may hold hands with the men. She says married life is too serious for her. Donald Schneider has a serious out-look on life while buying cough-medicine for his six-triplets at Vic Drexilius’ drug store. They are all boys and look like Don; he has at least outdone Mr. Dionne. Lillie Schneider is seen trying to count the scales on a “little gold fish” which is swimming around in an acquarium at one of the stores in Alton. The magic ball tells us that Winifred Shashek is running a dress shop in Worden. Business is falling hard, but she has felt no pain as yet. Mary Ellen Simons is the efficient and loving wife to her husband. Roy Slemer has recently become the caretaker of the monkeys at the St. Louis Zoo. Congratulations, Roy, we didn’t think you had it in you! (Continued on Next Page) Compliments of “The Corner Drug Store” Main and Vandalia Streets Edwardsville, Illinois Phone 272 One Hundred Thirty-FiveSenior Class Prophecy (Continued From Preceding Page) Elna Smith has become the star reporter of the Post-Dispatch. Carol Soehlke is now the “glamour-girl” of E. H. S. in the fourth try to become so; now she can get out of here for good! Our magic ball now tells us of a boy of the 1940 Graduation Class who has really made a name for himself. This is Leonard Soehlke who has proved that there is enough static electricity in a cubic yard of peanut shells to push a billiard ball with the speed of light from New York to Mexico. Meanwhile, Henry Sperandio is married and has nine children, mostly boys and girls. Kirk Stafford is manager of the “Colonial-Bees,” that’s why there is no such team. The crystal says that Lorene Soehlke has become so proficient in teaching of English that her word is taken as authority, but in spite of her beauty she is still a member of the “Watchful Waiters’ Club”. Betty Stelzriede has taken up foreign missionary work in Africa, but so far has not taken up native habits. Roman Stolcis is now a Wall Street executive, with a lovely debutante on each knee. Coleman Stone has a girls’ air school. He is the only teacher and tries to show the girls how to pilot. Charles Suchy is still trying to impeach the President of the U. S. and is now President of the Stock Yards in East Side, according to the words of the magic ball. Ruth Suessen is the financial manager of Barnum and Bailey Circus. Jean Suffolk is following Russell Treat’s “Reducing Exercises” in order to keep that hour-glass figure of hers. Man,' Talick, Olive Thomas and Evelyn Viere have a little dance number running at Ralph Schmidt’s Theater in Glen Carbon. Rae Theuer is trying to call all his chickens together with his trumpet. In all earnestness Tosovsky has decided to become a bachelor, giving all his love, tenderness, and devotion to the little flowers. Delores Traub has become the ideal wife, buying rolling pins at the 10 cent store. Lester Troeckler spends his time sitting in front of the mirror trying to keep his hair the pretty pink color that it is now by pulling every white hair out that comes in. We just hope he doesn’t run out of hair. (Think how he would look.) Duane Volz is the Glamour Boy of his time, and is giving lessons on “how not to blush.” We see where Wayne Walter has followed his father’s footsteps as the Justice of the Peace. Lawrence Weber has really put his big ideas about boats and motors together and now runs an excursion boat from St. Louis to New Orleans. Olin Weber has been turned into the so-called “Hen-Pecked Husband” of his wife. Dorothy Weliner, besides owning her beauty parlor. has made “face lifting” her specialty. Geneva Weidner, secretary' of the Chamber of Commerce, is now trying to tell all the business men just how their business should be run. Among the last to step before our magic crystal is Hubert Wetzel, who is the proud troop-chairman of the Boy Scouts of Alhambra. Elsie Weimers is still—just lookin’. Dorrence Wilkison has become the traveling salesman of whom everyone hears so many tales. David Yates is seen traveling the world over, and playing second fiddle with Rubinoff. And even Edwin Zika has a prosperous shoe-shine business in Grand Central Station. You folks have heard just what the crystal ball sees for the members of the 1940 Graduation Class in a very few short years. We hope you are all pleased. Everyone knows our Senior Class. Just wait and see our flights through life, (in about 10 years.) One Hundred Thirty-Six (Continued on Page 139)WHEN YOUR SHIP COMES IN YOU REMEMBER MR. MICAWBER, the famous character of Dickens in “David Copperfield”— the unsuccessful guy who was always waiting for something to turn up—waiting for his ship to come in. Some people are like that. A good sailor knows the wisdom of casting to windward. In everyday affairs, to make journey safe one needs ready money. With it one can grasp opportunities, buy things, take trips—even marry.

From Page 136) But this isn’t the end of what our crystal sees. We have yet to tell you what it has told us about what the teachers of E. H. S. will be doing in that elegant year of 1950. The teachers come and go before the crystal ball and this is what it has to say about their futures: Miss Stoldt has gone in for bigger and better things. Instead of cutting up worms and frogs she now is butcher for the Tri-City. And as Miss Gewe steps in front of the crystal ball, we see her in a straw hat; she is now married and lives on a farm and is trying to teach her pigs Latin. Mr. Lercher has grown so tired of following Mr. Robinson around, he has finally decided to become a detective; he says he knows how to trail people. Miss Davis has gone back to Old Mexico, to her Casanova, whom she found on her trip down there in 1939. Meanwhile, Miss Cheek is recuperating in a hospital from being carried down the bowling alley with a ball; they say that that was one time she lost nearly all her English. Miss Harris is retired and taking care of her health. The triangles and the rest of her geometry and Dorothy George’s practicing on the piano nearly had her down. She’s getting along fine now. Dorothy’s at college and Miss Harris has forgotten all the Geometry she ever knew. Mr. Gibson, as he steps before the crystal, is a salesman for the “Grow Your Own Hair Tonic Co.” Miss Wood has been married for two years and still gets along with her husband. Mr. Henderson is on trial for “nearly man slaughter”, as he was with Miss Cheek at the bowling alley and she claims he was taking her attention from what she was trying to do. (Continued on Page 140) One Hundred Thirty-NineSenior Class Prophecy (Continued From Page 139) Mr. Love is still the dean of boys, but not in E. H. S.; he is in Jacksonville. Miss Adams is married and already has a family, and. to the surprise of everyone, they all speak English. Miss Jones has finallv conquered THIS AND THAT SORT OF THING. While all this has been going on, Mr. Louderback has acquired enough money to retire and is on the Hawaiian Islands resting, sleeping, and eating under a shady palm. Miss Sloan has been fired from E. H. S. and in order to keep up with figures and people she is taking a census of the United States. Mr. Blodgett, as you have heard of other principals, has retired on the school’s money. Nigel has been taught Mr. Blodgett’s bad habits, but she is not quite so bad. She has gone in for playing cards for money. Miss Harlan is married and between her and Mr. Smith, they have enough boys to make up a football team. Miss Tendick, since she has left dear old E. H. S. back in ’49, has become a Cooking School Teacher. Mr. Wilson is a foreign news correspondent for the U. S.—he says the Italian wine and the Spanish girls are very nice, but not to worry, his wife is with him. Mr. Kinsel is now planning to take some boys to Europe as he has already seen all of the United States. Mr. Shannon stays home now and takes care of the kids, while Mrs. Shannon teaches school. Miss Pierson has taken her Johnny off to Egypt to live among the Pyramids. Mr. Goff, meanwhile, is trying to persuade the president to give everyone in the United States two acres of land, and go back to the “Old Days.” Miss Hoskins is still preaching to people not to do this, and to do that—even though she doesn’t practice it herself.
