We have changed the style of tho book in as many ways as we thought desirable. We hope that the following pages will permanently record in an informal man- ner the memories of this school year. and that when, you glance through this book in future years you will be reminded of how we acted "way back in 1940-41 A.

I. F. GILLHHM The school board consists of seven non-paid citizens elected by the people to look after the business end of running our schools. This year saw the replacement of two retiring members Mrs. Handlon and Leonard Schwartz. In their place are two other competent members Mrs. Gillham and Dr. Wayne B. Cox. This year the board initiated many important improvements. the most important one being the new addition to our high school soon to be built. A In order to finance this new buiHing, the board found it necessary to induce the people to vote for higher taxes. This being done, plans for the building were drawn and soon a tine new building will stand where once were the drinking fountain and bicycle racks. Inside this addition will be the much-needed workshop for manual training, a general science laboratory, rooms for both instrumental and vocal music, a room for public speaking and dramatics, one for mechanical drawing, and other class rooms. Besides the new addition, the board improved our school by adding an Agricultural course and by adding several more teachers to assist in other courses. It goes without saying that the students of E.H.S. are grateful to the board members for the many improvements we have received this year. We hope that in the future the board will continue as they are now, to make our schools better institutions of learning. IAMES L. REED A. E. BAYER R. C. CUNNINGHAM President Secretary E. A. BOLLMAN CLYDE FRUIT DR. VIAYNE B COX E. L. ALEXANDER Superintendent This is Mr. Alexander's "Senior" year in E.H.S. However. we are fortunate in that he will remain with us. Mr. Alexander's duties are many, since he is not only gen- eral overseer ot all the public schools in Edwardsville, but principal of Iunior High School as well. Always with a friendly smile. he is well liked by all. D. R. BLODGETT Principal Regarded as one of the best school men in this district. Mr. Blodgett has kept our school running like a well-oiled, precision- built machine. Hs activities do not include this school only, for he is also a gpabfle secretary ot the Southwest: Wrence. ,MQW I. I. LOVE Vice Principal and Dean of Boys It can easily be said that "to know Mr. Love is to like him." tor he has the admira- tion ol all the students, especially the boys. As sponsor of the Hi-Y Club, Mr. Love is well acquainted with boys' problems and thus is able to help man bo with their personal problem 1 6. ELSIE SLOAN Dean ol Girls At the head ol girls' activities in E.H.S. is a competent leader, Miss Sloan. She con- fers with the girls on their personal prob- lems and lends a helping hand whenever possible. Besides this and her classes, she directs the Senior Play.

SS UF '41 ELASS UFFIEEHS LORETTA PIZZIN I President IACK PARKER Vice-President ELLEN HILDENSTEIN Secretary-Treasurer We won't start off and bore you by telling about how we as Freshies entered a so-called "mysterious building," and how we soon became sophisti- cated Sophomores, then jovial Iuniors, and lastly proud, haughty Seniors. Instead, we will tell you about some of the "mighty" things we accomplished in our "short" tour-year stay. We say "short" because it really has seemed short. Looking back, it seems as though it was only yesterday that we were the so-called "green" Freshmen. - We cannot boast of many great accomplishments during our first three years, but that mighty fourth year has us bragging. To begin with, we were co-champions in football, our team being the first undefeated team in the history of E. H. S. Then, as if co-champions in football wasn't enough, we came right back to capture the same honor in basketball! This was followed up by winning first place in the Regional Tournament which was held in Highland. Of course, all our interests were not in sports alone. In our class there were many students who finished with high scholastic honors. Then there were the many successful parties and dances held throughout the year. None of us will forget such memorable occasions as the Iunior-Senior Prom, Sadie Hawkins Day Party, Football Prom, Hallowe'en Party, and many other such events. All in all, we have had many fine times here in "good old E. H. S." and there is not one of us that does not, somehow, regret leaving! , Away'- ' 5 tongue is enough tor any Woman." p Club 1, 2, 3, 4, Hi-Tri l, 2, 3, 4, Speech Club 3, Com- erce Club 3, 4, ENNY ANDERSON, "Hudy" "Be gone, my cares, I have no time tor you!"

S. was honored by the presence of a large group of young but wonderful people. We were a green lot, that we admit! But in the short period of only three or four weeks we knew just where all of our classrooms were and had learned the names of our teachers. But that was the way with us-quick to learn. We were always kept at the point ol a Senior tongue but we soon learned to ignore even their very presence. And so from that great year we have advanced to stately Iuniors. Are we proud ol being Iuniors? "Dog-gone right we are proud. But even so, we look forward to the day when we are Seniors. We ieel that we have done a lot this year. First of all we put on a "super- duper" hit called "What a Life." Then with the proceeds from that we gave the Seniors a royal send-off. Yes. sir. we gave a Iunior-Senior banquet that even the Seniors will say was "royal." In spite of all the fun we have had this year, we can hardly wait till we are Seniors because we know that that year will be even more enjoyable.

You can't simply turn this page without giving us, the Sophomore class, a chance to express ourselves, without telling you just what we have contributed to the spirit and atmosphere of this publication. We feel that it is our duty to inform you of what our class has been doing for the last two years in E. H. S. We have not been sleeping, no. sir! We have contributed a great deal to this institution-we play a vital role in the life of our Alma Mater. Our class is not so insignificant as perhaps a few upper-classmen suspect us of being! Why. what in the world would those tiny Freshmen do without our guidance? Who would keep them free from the clutches of the "initiating- mad" upper-classmen? Our class has entered into all activities with vim and vigor. We have helped to put over the many great events of this year and we shall continue to do so. '. Last year as Freshmen, we made a plea for time, hoping that everyone might forget and forgive our blundering mistakes. We have had that time and talthough we don't wish to appear conceitedl we feel that we have developed into one grand class. Now that you understand the small but terrifically important part we play in the life of E. H. S., you may turn this page and read on, leaving us until next year when we will appear as Iuniors. .

President LOUIS SCHMIDT Vice-President IAMES MARKS Our class was one of the largest ever to enter E. H. S. Of course, at first we didn't know what this place was all about, but as the days went on we crawled out of our shell and began ioining clubs, trying out for athletics, and taking part in the various school events. We elected officers. had a few meetings and sent questionnaires to all the Freshmen in order to find out what the majority desired to undertake during the year. Now that the last semester is coming to a close. we are able to look back over the preceding year. We have found out that it wasn't so bad to be a Freshman after all-but we are looking forward to the time when we will be Seniors and can wander through the halls as though we know where we are going. We appreciate the friendship shown us by the upper-classmen, and we feel that our many good times were due mainly to the help and sportsmanship they have given us. We also appreciate the fine football and basketball teams whom we have striven to back during the year. We sincerely hope that we may in the future continue to enjoy ourselves here in E. H. S.

Sponsor The Hi-Y is a club organized for the purpose of discussing and dealing with boys' problems. This year the club started with a fair number of old mem-bers and during the course of the year increased the membership so that the club is now quite large. The club meets in the evening so that they may have more time for business meetings and programs. This year the club invited several outside men to speak at their meet- ings and by so doing enioyed several interesting talks and discussions. Several members attended the Older Boys' Conference which was held at East St. Louis. There they had an educational and enjoyable time. The club also had several social events. The first was a dance at which the Swing Band played. The second was a Weiner Roast held this spring. Everyone had a fine time at both of these events. especially at the dance which will probably become an annual event with the club. We hope that the club will continue to be one of the best organiza- tions of E. H. S. ST Wilbur Volz . . . ..... President Glen Schlueter .... Vice-President Judy Kubicek.

Each class selects members who represent them at the regular meetings of the Council. Whenever a student has a school problem, he takes it to his class representative who in turn presents it to the Council for discussion. In this way many problems have been brought to light and discussed pro and con for the benefit cf the schooL At least once a month the Council makes it a point to hold a student forum during an assembly period. These forums give everyone a chance to express his opinion on the topic in question. Their surveys of the student body have also yielded valuable information for further study.

Tiger Tales is celebrating its third anniversary. The main purpose of the paper is to create a bond of school spirit between students. teachers and parents. The paper is issued weekly on Wednesday and sells for three cents. Many of the school problems and difficulties are brought to light in this paper. It serves as medium through which these diificulties can be solved. One of the biggest selling features of the paper is the gossip which is in every week. Ii students aren't interested in anything else, they are interested in getting the low-down on the other kids. Dolores Howerton, the editor, cannot be given too much credit for her diligent and laborious work on the paper. Dolores spoke over radio station WTMV in Ianuary. She spoke on mimeographed school publications. The staff members had cr banquet on April 18th. Outside of this enjoyable evening the staff must spend most of its time working.

The local chapter serves to create ir-.terest in agriculture. It also affords an ex- cellent opportunity to teach farm boys some of the funda- mental principles of group leadership and cooperation. This club is one of the most active organizations in E. H. S. and there is probably no other club which is made up of more enthusiastic members.

Some day you will hear from these brilliant minds. This was the "goony" bunch that had people worrying as to whether there would even be a Tiger this year, but there was one and it's staring you right in the lace. Without a twinge of conscience, we can truthfully say that this Tiger is the most stupendous, colossal and magnificent publication ever to materialize from our lair school-it also was a good book. lModest, aren't we?J Of course, we could not have accomplished this by our little selves. We lound it necessary to seek advice from our capable, quiet, unassuming, modest advisors, who indeed were the inspiration behind this immortal publication. Of course this wasn't much work - but what else could have made our brains wilt? There is a certain institution on the outskirts of Alton where we shall, in the future, reside.

TH!lIIIi194tl With all the basketballs tucked away for the year, Coach Smith turned his attention to a group of boys jogging around a cinder oval. "Hmmm," says coach, "quite a few prospects. Maybe we'll have a pretty fair team this season." And we did turn out a pretty fair team which possessed a few good men in almost every event. A general picture of the season as a whole shows that of the seven meets on the schedule, the Tiger thin-clads won two, lost one by one point, lost another by two points, and placed "in the money" in the other big meets of the year. Opening the season with a victory, the Tigers won a triangular meet at Collinsville by defeating the host team and Alton. The final score was Edwardsville 59, Collinsville 55, and Alton 27. The Iuniors lthose under 16112 years of agel also triumphed, as they trampled the Collinsville Iuniors, 86213 to 41113. Next the Tigermen went to Granite to participate in the Conference Relays. A powerful East St. Louis squad won this meet while Edwardsville finished fourth, barely missing out on third place. Points scored by the first four teams were East Side 128, Belleville 37, Wood River 34, Edwardsville 32213. On May 5th, the only night meet of the year was held on our own track. Four teams were entered in the meet, namely, Granite City, Alton, Wood River, and of course Edwardsville. The cool night air didn't seem to hamper the Tigers, as they rolled up enough points to clinch the victory. The final standing found us in first place with 47-516 points, then Granite 31112, Wood River 27113, and Alton 6113. Two days later in a day meet here, Belleville nosed out the Tigers by the scant margin of one point, the score being 57-56 in the Maroons' favor. Next came the District meet with thirty-two teams entered. East St. Louis won this with Edwardsville winding up in sixth place. Bill Martin qualified to compete in the 200-yard low hurdles at the State Meet but didn't make the trip. Two days after the State Meet Edwardsville held a dual meet with Granite City on our own field. Again we lost a tough one as Granite edged in front to beat us by two points, the score being 57112-55112. urnln' up a few cinclers. All set to start, but no place to go.

The score: East Side 651!2, Granite 20, Edwards- ville 18, with the other teams scattered on down the line. Those who placed of the Tigers were Davis, second in high hurdles and third in the 440: Martin, Conference champion in low hurdles and third in high jump: Cassens, third in low hurdles, and Adamick. fourth in the mile run. The relay team, com- posed of Cassens, Bettman, Davis and Martin, finished second to round out the points scored. A third place trophy was presented to Captain Davis after the meet.

Throughout the year the Tiger eleven displayed beautifully executed plays. hard clean blocking. and precision ball handling. So matchless was their performance, one football expert declared them the equal of any great team yet produced in the Southwestern Conference. Autumn found most people thinking we would have a fair team. but no one dreamed that 1940 would bring Edwardsville its first undefeated squad. To accomplish this the Tigers played good smart football. game after game. until they emerged undefeated Co-Champs of the Conference. The only flaw in their marvelous record was a 0-0 tie with East Side. Final statistics also proved Edwardsville to have the best defensive team in the state. Playing an eight-game schedule, six opponents were held scoreless. and the other two to a single touchdown each. This added up to a grand total of 12 points which topped all others in the state of Illinois. Coach Smith attributed this winning season to good material. a lot of practice and hard work. plus a great team spirit. Every man co-operated to his fullest for the good of the team. Another important factor was the absence Kolesa Schmidt Rohrkaste Stafford Brumitt Mo gan Guard Tackle Center Back End Manager l euthe Demos Parker Agles Lautner Kreici Guard Back Tackle End Guard Co-Captain COACH SMITH Here is the man who was the guiding influence bee hind our championship team this year.

That was when Menoni missed the Collinsville fracas due to a mild attack of appendicitis. The close of the season brought many honors to the Tigers irom friends, sport writers and clubs. At the annual Conference Banquet, the Rotary Bowl, significant of the championship, was awarded the victors. The Conference Trophy was presented at a second least given by the Kiwanis Club. Mean- while the regulars had been receiving individual honors. Co-Captain Menoni made first team All-Conference and was chosen on every All-State team picked. Volz and Lautner were also voted first team All-Conference rating. In fact, the whole Tiger eleven received recognition, as Kreici, Kuethe, Lank- lord, Martin. Gregor and Demos landed second team berths. Not to be lett out were Moore and Agles, who were given honorable mention. Months have passed and excited cheers have died away but in years to come the date 1940 will recall memories of a grand school, a great football team, and old schoolmates.

Our team showed flashes of real power. but was hampered by fumbles and penalties. Co-Captain Kreici scored the only touchdown of the game in the second period. TIGERS 0 - EAST ST. LOUIS 0 The Conference season opened with a game never to be forgotten by E. H. S. fans. East Side was the heavy favorite. but our stubborn Bengals were not to be denied. Time after time they staved off Flyer scoring threats until the gun ended the tussle in a U-0 tie. Four times they were within our 10-yard line. but they didn't penetrate the Tigers' goal line stand. Everyone in the Edwardsville lineup performed brilliantly on defense. while there was little chance to show offensive strength. TIGERS 26 - WOOD RIVER 0 A 26-0 win over Wood River's "Oilers" launched a drive to the champion- ship that was never halted. It was the first home game of the year. and the victory proved the Tigers to have the real offensive power as well as great defensive strength. Edwardsville was in complete command throughout the contest. as Volz took over two touchdowns while Gregor caught a Krejci pass for another. The second team played the last quarter and also scored as Holt carried over the last six points.

Everyone had been looking forward to a good team and hoped we might be able to cop another title to go with our football crown. And that is iust what happened, for the conference season ended with Edwardsville and Wood River perched on top, sharing the championship. Edwardsville had what is called cr "money" team, for when the going was tough, and a win was needed, the Tigers would usually come through. This can be illustrated by comparing the conference record with the non-comterence record. In winning the conference the Tigers won eleven and lost three, while against other opposition they won four and lost seven. Here is proof that the Tigers always played their best ball when the competition was keen. As they started their drive to the championship, Edwardsville ran up a string of six straight wins before Granite City stopped them. In the second round of play the Bengals won five and lost two, to clinch a co-championship. Injuries practically cheated us out of a single championship, because alter the first four games the team was never really at full strength. Volz and Gregor were hampered by sprained ankles and Eihausen suffered a badly bruised foot. But even this didn't stop the Tigers who overcame all odds to win. Every member of the squad deserves credit, as well as Coach Smith, who did such an able job of coaching our championship team. ll H HEIIIJHII Highland ,Tigers Won, 29-14 Here Litchfield .

In the first game, Carlyle offered little oppo- sition as Edwardsville rolled over them, 50-26. However, the two following games were tough and thrilling. Pocahontas had a smart, fast aggregation that held the Tigers for three quarters, until Edwardsville pulled away in the final period to win, 32-19. Collinsville had won their bracket, so we were pitted against our old rivals in the championship game. Playing before a packed house, the Kahoks held the upper hand throughout the early minutes, leading 11-1 at the quarter and 16-13 at the half. Then the story changed as the aroused Tigers played an inspired second half to win 35-27. After the game a beautiful trophy was presented to Coach Smith and the team for their victorious efforts. SEETIIQI lll. TUUHNAMENT Wood River and Edwardsville entered the Sectional as top-heavy favor- ites, but were destined to get no further than the first round. Wood River was eliminated by Collinsville and Edwardsville was jinxed by Granite City, 35-23. The Tigers were definitely "off" while the Warriors were playing a bit over their heads. Coach Bozarth's crew seemingly could do nothing wrong while Edwardsville could do nothing right. But that's basketball and neither coach or the team offered any excuses. Alter the underdogs had taken their toll, Collinsville, a team who had been defeated thrice by the Tigers, eventually won their own Sectional Tournament. L tt man Sch l oac LETTEHME Denny Aylward, Guard-Always a good rebound man, Denny improved greatly as an offensive player this year. His good all-'round play rated him a position on the All-Conierence second team. Victor Becker, Guard-One of the youngcr players who has two years of competition left. A clever dribbler, a good two-handed shot as well as a team man. Harold Black, Forward-Blackie is small, a good shot, and proved useful quite often while filling in for injured regulars. He should develop rapidly in his remaining year and a half. Quentin Eihausen, Center-Quentin led the Tigers in Conference scor- ing, being seventh in the league. He received honorable mention at All- Conterence and should be a fine scoring man next year. Maurice Gregor, Guard-"Tootie" did a lot of rebounding under both baskets. as well as being a consistent scorer. His good work found him a place on the All-Conference second ieam. Melvin Kuethe. Forward-"Herman" was the wild man of the squad. When in action he always gave the crowd a good show with some football tactics applied to basketball. Bill Martin, Forward-Bill finished ninth among Conference scorers and second among Tiger point men. His specialties were long ones. He, too, was selected on the All-Conterence second team. Lawrence Schultz, Center-Lawrence, otherwise known as "Fish," is a big Sophomore who has plenty of possibilities. He saw quite a bit of action in the latter part of the season. Wilbur Volz, Forward-Volz started the season well but was handicapped later by a severely sprained ankle. His point-making ability earned him cr place on the All-Conference iirst team. Letterman Stafford Letterman Becker h Llrche Coich Smith Sponsors and Officers Archery Volley Ball Basketball HL5' THLETIE The purpose oi this club is to create a greater interest in athletics and teach better sportsmanship and cooperation among the girls. Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays oi each month, with special meetings tor various occasions. Business is carried on and the com- mittee appointed for that meeting provides entertainment lor all. Officers are elected from the senior girls by the entire membership of the club. Sport heads also are chosen, but they do not have to be Seniors. These girls aid the sponsors of the various sports. They are in charge oi equipment, attendance, and any other duty which the sponsor gives them. Besides being sponsor of the G. A. A., Miss Harlan is also in charge of basketball, softball, and bicycling. Miss Harris sponsors volleyball, Miss Stoldt supervises archery, Miss Cheek is in charge of bowling, and Miss Hoskins is the sponsor ot tennis. To be eligible to ioin this club a girl must take physical education and some sport which will credit her with a certain number of points. She is initiated and promises to uphold the G. A. A. pledge. Usually a supper is given after the initiation. Health rules may be kept tor a period ot sixteen weeks in order to obtain additional points. The more sports which a girl partakes of, the more points she will receive: providing she has not missed over three meetings. Physical education also provides additional points. If a certain number ot points are made a letter is awarded. After a sport has been completed, awards are presented to the ':J.'nning team or a chili supper or some other party is given in honor of the winners. The Senior girls won the championship in basketball and during an assembly they receive small pins representing a basketball. Tennis Softball Bowling Bicycling SSUIII TIU Near the end of each year a Senior girl is chosen by a committee and the faculty members sponsoring the sports. On class day this "all around G. A. A. girl" is awarded a trophy. ,Some of the qualifications are good sportsmanship, loyalty. honesty. leadership, scholastic standing in school. ath- letic ability, personality. and other details of an "all around person." Playdays are given by schools appointed by the state association. A large number of girls from several schools are invited to attend. Games are played. songs sung. speeches made, entertainment provided. refreshments enjoyed. pictures taken. new friends gained, awards presented, and all in all a very happy and memorable time is spent in one day. The G. A. A. also sells candy at football and basketball games. Money is earned by other means also to help pay expenses. Near the end of the year a banquet is given for the seniors. Gardenias are given to the graduating girls and speeches are made by the teachers and new and old officers. In Iune the newly elected president and one other girl chosen by the club are sent to camp free of charge by the G. A. A. Other girls may also attend this camp if they pay the set amount. The girls enjoy the time spent in this club and regret leaving. They have made friends and have used their leisure time to good advantage. Many have letters and other souvenirs to remind them of the happy days enioyed in the Girls' Athletic Association. wx. 2 1 A A 0 5.1, I 1, K!

Shannon, the vocal musi- cal department again was engaged in several outstanding events. The major events this year were the operetta and the "Southwestern Music Festival." The festival was held at Wood River this year. There many clubs got together lor a big "sing-fest." This year the guest conductor was the tamed Olaf Christensen, writer and director of choral music. The chorus also sang at several assemblies, the most important ol these being the musical assembly in which all the musical departments of E. H. S. were entered. Besides the assemblies, the chorus sang at P. T. A. and other civic organizations' meetings. This year Mr. Shannon changed the style used in the learning ot a num- ber. Instead of having the chorus sing a number over and over to learn it, they first went through the number and analyzed it. Then after having prac- tised various skips, chords, etc., the students were able to sight read the music much more easily and thus learn the number in a manner that would most benefit them. In this way the students learned more about the technical side ot music and voice control. Most of the time spent in singing songs over and over was to get better expression and eliminate undesirable tone qualities. This is Mr. Shannon's second year as director ot music, and under his guidance music has grown much better and more important in our school. We sincerely hope that he will be with us for many more years. 3 av K gg, ,K , f 5 Q 2 'H 2 Ii Eli a gg .

This group is composed of just thirty-five members, especially picked for the blending qualities of their voices. They have been introduced to poly- phonic, chorale, and other types of higher music. Also they have been in- structed in directing the group and now realize to some extent the problems confronting a director. The Choir meets but once a week for an hour and has accomplished much in so short a time after one considers the many hours of practice required to perfect music of this type. They practice solely for perfection in their work, with unison as their keynote-contact and interpretation included. They are unaccompanied and must gain their individual pitch from a single tone. They have not filled many engagements this year. but with such an enthusiastic beginning and such fine directing as Mr. Ralph Shannon is pro- viding. this group is certain to prove a major and popular one in the future. SWI G BAN At the beginning of this year a few of the band members decided they wanted to dive a little into this subject called "swing." That's right, they wanted to organize a dance orchestra for this school. So they went to Maestro Shannon to see what could be done about it. Well, Sir Shannon "got hep to the jive" and dug in his band and brought out a few potential "iive-cats." Then they started rehearsals. Things seemed to be "in the groove" so that all that remained for them to do was to get the approval of the students. Their big chance came. It seemed the Cheer Club was at the time spon- soring the Homecoming program and needed music for an assembly. Well, thought the orchestra, they want music and they will get music. So the Swing Band played-the students cheered and thus established the band's place as "chief jive-cats." They were such a success that they were called upon to play for the Sweetheart's Matinee Dance given on St. Valentine's Day, and for several other matinee dances. They also gave the Iunior High School "hep-cats" a performance. Different clubs started to call on them to play at their parties. There is no doubt about it, they were one of the most popular organizations on the campus. At the beginning it was an eleven-piece group, but it was decided to add two and now there are thirteen "solid senders." The big time of the year for them was the music assembly in which the orchestra played a large part. Etzkorn and Wolf blared out harmoniously on their trumpets, Flavin gave out on his clarinet, Tommy "beat it out on the mellow side" of his drums, and Iudy "swung out" her songs-in fact, every member gave out with the best swing music they knew. Along with this they played accompaniment to other acts on the program. The students of E. H. S. wish to thank the members of the orchestra for giving us dance music during the past year. We sincerely hope the Swing Band keeps up the good work and will in the future continue to "give out the iive" in the best way they know how!

S. was really awakened to the fact that there was a band in their school to be proud oi. The band has done several things to bring this about and have done those things well. First of all, they marched between halves at all ot our football games. They did stunts that were clever and original. At the head of the marching band was a bat- talion of "swell-stepping" baton twirlers. Margaret Stewart made a pretty sight dressed in her drum major's outfit and she used her head when it came to directing the band while on the march. We all know of the flashy twirling she did with her silver baton. After the football season the band concentrated more on music rather than showmanship, but they soon started playing at basketball games and had to mix the two. Along with their good music they put on a good show for the audience. Such things as having the trumpets and trombones come up in front of the band for a chorus and such things as having sixteen "strong- lunged" fellows sing the stirring "Land of Liberty," hushed the crowds and made them sit up and take notice of our band. At the beginning of each game the band would play "The Star Spangled Banner." Everyone kept quiet as the band played this-probably they thought how lucky they were to be at a basketball game instead of worrying about bombs dropping on them. The band played for all Conference games and did their share of yelling and supporting the team otherwise. Another thing the band tried "Stepping high." Do we look like flute players" Oomph pa, oomph pa," Thi took cr lot of practice. this year and which was enjoyed by all was the singing of the choruses of several marches. One oi the biggest and most delightful surprises the band received this year was an invitation to play before approximately four thousand teachers at the annual Illinois Education Association meeting in East St. Louis on April 4th. They played a line concert and were well received at the meeting although Mr. Shannon's knees were shaking. The members had one grand time during the bus ride to and from East Side. There will be many bands in E. H. S. but here is one gang that will be hard to beat. We hope that many more E. H. S. bands will play under Mr. Shannon's fine directing. Ralph M. Shannon ..., ....

"The Waltz Dream." written by Oscar Straus and Ioseph Herbert. For the first time in the history of E. H. S., this operetta was presented on two successive nights. It was attended by large crowds each night. This operetta was one of the most colorful and well-presented ever given on our school stage. The story took place in Sylvania during comparatively recent times. It portrayed the typical life of Vienna. With an interesting plot. a fine chorus. and fine acting and singing on the part of the cast. this operetta was really one of the most outstanding events ever given in E. H. S.'s gym.

The play was written "chuck lull" of clever lines and was centered around an exceedingly interesting plot. The play was greatly enjoyed by all who attended it. The plot centers around the daughter and son of the McIntyre family of California. Terry, the daughter, falls in and out of love three times during the course of the play. First love for her is Bert Parsons, who turns out to be a cad. Next she falls for a Stewart Miller, a mother's boy. Finally she is steered over to the "right one" by the intervention of her mother and father. While all this is going on, George, the son, is having his romantic troubles, too. In the end, of course, everything turns out for the best: Terry marries Brian and George falls back in love with Diane Gilmore. Miss Sloan did a fine iob of directing the play, and the stage committee, under the direction of Mr. Goff, made a fine stage set.

It was attended by a large crowd and was thor- oughly enioyed. The play was under the able direction of Miss Wilma Iones. The plot of the play centered around Henry Aldrich, a young high school lad who had a unique way of always getting into trouble. Into one iam after another, Henry finally is accused of stealing some expensive musical instru- ments. However, the real culprit was found and he turned out to be Henry's closest rival in his high school romance.

The gates of the great spook house were opened to all who dared to come. Slowly the spooks tip-toed in-one by one-two by two. Some were funny. some were beautiful-some were clever, others looked like Frankenstein after a bad night! One spook was over eight feet tall-skin, bones, and about three feet wood! fHe's pictured above.D A peculiar thing was the way in which each spook was scrutinizing the other! Perhaps they were in search of long-lost friends or maybe they were just curious. Suddenly, there came strange noises and rhythms from a far-off dark corner! These weird musical sounds resounded from wall to wall and steadily increased in volume until the very building seemed to vibrate! Slowly the spooks paired off and began dancing over the floor with the "boogie-woogie stomp." They were dancing to Ioe Ladd and his boys, for this was the annual Hallowe'en dance! Soon the music stopped. The mysterious tribe of masked people began to parade about the gym. They were showing off their garbs in an effort to win a prize. Some of the prize winners are pictured above. After this all the spooks unmasked and guess what? They all turned out to be students and teachers of our high school. With Ioe Ladd blaring forth on his trumpet we started to dance and kept on till fairly late-but not too late being as we had school the next day. Then we left the spook house. Some went home, others- KCENSOREDJ. Any- way. we all had a big time and we hope this event will continue to be one of the best "shin-digs" of the year.

S.'s parking lot Kfor empty cars onlyb was cluttered up with trucks, cars, and even a tractor. They were soon to be converted into magnificent f?J floats for the Homecoming Parade. All during the day kids were getting out of school to decorate l?J these floats. Some of the results are pictured above. Immediately after school everyone assembled in the gym while the Swing Band played and pep talks were given. Then the whole mob followed the floats downtown. When they arrived at the court house everyone stopped and gave a few yells. Now all this was in preparation for the football game with Belleville that same night. We had a good team and so far hadn't lost a game. Belleville was also supposed to have a good team so that had us a little worried. How- ever, when night came and the game was played--you all know the results -we won 13-6. Following the game there was a Homecoming Dance. Good music was furnished by Boots Wilhauk and his orchestra. This homecoming dance was attended by probably one of the largest crowds ever to dance in E. H. S.'s gym. Betty B arnett Lined up for mspectton. FIIIJTBI-lLI. PHI1 A fitting finale to a great football season was made on the night of November the 30th. 1940, as we held our fourth annual Football Prom. The gym was colorfully decorated by the Cheer Club, who sponsored the event. As soon as all the guests had been seated, the lights were dimmed, music began to play, and one by one in marched the lettermen with their maids. Finally a fanfare announced the coming of our Queen, lovely Miss Betty Bar- nett, escorted by lack Parker. As she reached the throne she knelt and was crowned "Queen of the 1940 Football Season" by Donna Bergschneider, retiring Queen. After the crowning, speeches were given by Coach Smith, Mr. Blodgett. and Co-Captains Menoni and Krejci. They gave talks concerning the various phases of the past season. Coach awarded each boy his letter and com- mended the team as a whole for the success it had achieved. Immediately following this. the Queen and her escort descended from the stage and led the dancing to the music of Boots Wilhauk and his orchestra. In all respects the Prom was a spectacular event. Those who did not attend do not realize what they missed! MAIDS AND LETTERMEN Paul Stafford ..... Mary Ann Trares Wilbur Volz ........ Leona Mateyka Clifford Schmidt ..,.

These cries rang through our school as the Hi-Tri officially declared Ianuary 13, 1941, as "Sadie Hawkins' Day." Alas! The boys were doomed as the girls took full command. What can a mere man do against the wiles of a female? That's right! Nothing! But it wasn't so bad after all as the boys found they really liked it. A climax to the day's festivities was a dance which was held in Dog- Patch fthe gyml with a large number of mountain folk present. In true Sadie Hawkins' style the girls called for the boys. opened and closed doors, and did everything a gentleman should. Many gals sent their men assorted vegetable corsages that contained everything and anything available. Besides being beautiful they were also quite tasty. Upon arriving everyone voted for Lil Abner and Daisy Mae who later turned out to be Denny Aylward and Nelda Phillips. Dancing began to the music of Ioe Ladd and his orchestra, who were attired to fit the occasion. Most of the "critters" present did the "Skunk Hollow S1ide" while some who wanted to be different were doing the "Hairless Ioe Stomp" or the "Dog-Patch Dip". M.id-way in the dance program a special number was presented by a corny quartet composed of Volz, Richards, Martin. and Stafford. They sang two appropriate numbers, "Sadie Hawkins' Day" and "Friendship" in true hill-billy style. This was followed by the coronation of Lil Abner QD. Aylwardl and Daisy Mae CN. Phillipsl. Other kids present also received awards such as Hairless Ioe, Old Man Mose, etc. Then came the mad rush for food as cokes, doughnuts, and candied apples were dished out. Dancing was again resumed after all the "vittles" had been masticated and swallowed. At ll:30 everyone departed for home but with regret since all had had a swell time. The party was very informal and everyone had such a good time that it will undoubtedly become an annual affair. So until next year the males are free again! HID PARTY "Kids will be kids" and a flock of E. H. S.'s girls really did justice to this term February 24th. This event was held in the "Nursery of E. H. S.." a spot often referred to as the gymnasium. Here about two hundred fifty "tiny tots"-all girls-ate, drank, and made merry till way past their bedtime. With much screaming and yelling, the children skipped rope, played with balloons and rubber balls, played London Bridge and other "delightful kiddie games." "Uncle" Ioe Ladd joined in the party and entertained the youngsters and encouraged them to dance. With all the girls "cutting loose," this party was one of the most enjoyable of the year. IDLE EHATTEH The following lot of "rambling on" tells about some of the events not elsewhere mentioned or described in this book. Naturally, it should be under- stood that this is purely fictional and that any relation to persons living or dead is purely coincidental. Maybe! First of all we'll start out with the football season. After seeing the sports' section you realize what a fine team we had. However, it might interest you to know that some of the team have broadened their talents into other fields-such as painting signs. etc. This includes all those on the team land a few outsiders, tool who were endowed with a great deal of natural ability for painting signs. This gifted group, a few nights before the game with Gillespie managed to get on top of the gym roof. There they put BEAT GILLE in beautiful white letters. Why they stopped at "E" can be explained only by a rumor that floated around school the following day. It seems the "exterior decorators" were scared away by nothing less than a member of our city police force. After beating Gillespie by a touchdown, the "Sign Painters of E. H. S. tlocal union No. 123XYZj" couldn't resist the temptation to return and complete their masterpiece. Monday morning, school kids found the following on the gym roof: BEAT GILLESPIEIH We Did 6-0 After the football season was over, the boys on the team were asked to give an assembly to further display their talents. This they did and what an assembly they gave! They entertained the school body with the floor show of the mythical "SchmItty's Place." With a "comy" band land it was just thatj, beautiful chorines Cshowing somewhat masculine and hairy legsl, a "moldy" quartette singing C?l and many other "delightful" acts, including even a couple of jitterbugs. this was one of the best assemblies of the year.

These farm boys managed to get a radio announcer from KMOX to conduct the program. In our gym this announcer conducted a quiz between five boys of the F. F. A. and five boys of the Hi-Y Club. All the questions dealt with farming and thus made the quiz quite humorous since all the Hi-Y boys were "city slickers." Of course, the F. F. A. boys won. A crazy assembly given by the Science Club showed a "mad scientist" fWilbur Gehringl doing an experiment. This scientist mixed together all the elements found in the human body. After a smoky reaction, a girl in old-fashion dress emerged. Later during the year the Science Club spon- sored a "shockingly" good lyceum in which a man demonstrated some of the wonders of electricity. Several "freshies" assisted in the show and we doubt whether they will ever forget the experience. The Speech Club put on more assemblies than did any other club with the exception, of course, of the Cheer Club. They sponsored a play at Christmas time, a lyceum which consisted of professional actors doing several short skits, and two plays of their own talent put on together in one big show. Of the three, the latter was probably the one most enjoyed. These two plays were comedies, both of which were well acted, well directed, and well re- ceived by the students.

SEASU ICONTINUED FROM PAGE 553 TIGERS 13 - BELLEVILLE 6 The Tigers continued to win as they defeated Belleville 13-6 before a large Homecoming crowd. The margin of victo-ry came in the second quarter when Edwardsville scored twice. Martin counted on an end run, while Volz blocked a punt that was picked up and carried across by Gregor. However. alter this the Tigers seemed to let down as the Maroons scored once and almost twice in the final quarter. This win put the Bengals second in the Conference standings. TIGERS 27 - ALTON 6 In search of their third straight victory, the Tigers joumeyed to Alton. whose Redbirds were unbeaten, untied and unscored upon. Neither team scored in the initial quarter but from there on the Tigermen literally "mopped up" on Alton. In the second quarter we tallied three times on two touch- downs by Volz and one by Martin. The third quarter was a scoreless quarter but Edwardsville again counted as Agles caught a pass from Krejci. Alton scored their only touchdown against the second team in the closing seconds of the game. By winning again the Tigers jumped into the Conference lead. TIGERS 9 - COLLINSVILLE 0 Collinsville brought to Edwardsville the toughest line yet faced this season by the Bengals. They were big. fast. and could really hit. Playing without Len Menoni, star center, the Tigers were held scoreless until the last quarter. when Martin took a lateral and raced around left end for the only score of the game. The additional two points came as a result of a safety. This victory further strengthened our hold on first place.

SE!-ISU KCONTINUED FROM PAGE 981 TIGERS 32 - GRANITE U Continuing their drive to the championship. the Tigers scored the biggest victory of the year when they swamped Granite 32-0. Taking to the air the Bengals displayed "razzle-dazzle" in the biggest degree. Forwards, reverses, laterals, and more laterals completely fooled the opposition as touchdown after touchdown was chalked up. Early in the third period the first team was relieved by a bevy of subs who finished out the game. Volz counted three times and Agles once before little George Demo was given the tailback spot and carried the last score again. TIGERS 26 - MADISON 0 Clinching the championship and ending an undefeated season. the Tigers trounced the Trojans 26-U. , .. g Madison put up a game fight but was subdued by our bffehsive power. Co-Captain Kreici led the Tigers to victory by scoring two touchdowns. A 70-yard run by Wib Volz behind perfect blocking provided one of the most spectacular plays of all season. Then to Gregor went the honor of scoring the season's last touchdown as he picked up a bad punt on Madison's 9-yard line and scored standing up. 352 321 K COMPLIMENTS OF E. L.

IDLE EHATTEH tCONTlNUED FROM PAGE 883 Other assemblies given during the year were as follows: a music assem- bly put on by the musical departments of E. H. S., a Latin Club assembly which was a Roman-Modern Style Show comparing the dress of the ancient Romans with our modern dress. Other clubs which sponsored assemblies were the Commerce Club. Hi-Tri. G. A. A.. and the Cheer Club. The latter had the task of seeing that there would be an assembly each week. either a pep meeting or one of those mentioned above. During the year we were fortunate enough to have several speakers. Among these were men who had previously lived and studied in foreign countries. They gave exceedingly interesting talks on the present war and other intemational strifes. Also a young Mexican speaker who was in our country on a good will tour, spoke on Mexico and its relations with our country. He told many interesting things about Mexico including the way they "pitch the woo." Besides the assemblies told of in the above. the Student Council held several forums. In these forums students were able to express their opinions on the subject held in discussion. Such subjects as "Democracy in the School." the "Use of an Activity Ticket" next year. and the "Football Prom" were put under fire. Some big arguments sometimes developed, especially between the girls and the boys. but the Council was able to get some valuable infor- mation from the students. With this information the Council will try to make next year a better one. ICONTINUED ON PAGE 124D A. Bothmau SL Sons Be Sure and See NEW 1941 V8 NOW ON DISPLAY!

IDLE IIHZITTEH CCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1091 In basketball, as you know, or should know. our team came out on top in the Conference and was slated to go to the Regional Tourney at Highland. Mr. Goff suggested that the kids who were going to see the games meet here at school before going. Here we held a pep meeting and gave the team a rousing "send off." Then, keeping in a group, we would follow the team's bus over to Highland. There we would sit together and form a large cheering section. Mr. Goff's idea was carried out and we feel that we can say that it helped the team win the tournament. Among the other events of the year were the organization parties. Those organizations who had parties include the Hi-Y Club. Speech Club. Senior Play Cast, Iunior Play Cast, Tiger Tales Staff. and several others. These smaller parties usually consisted of dancing to either records or the Swing Band and serving refreshments. An exception to this was the Tiger Tales Staff who gave a banquet. There were many other events that we could tell about. but it would take too much space. Such things as the various field trips taken. intramural basketball. the new building, etc.. would be included among the remaining events. We have told enough in the above to help you recall the fine times we have had and so we will end this "bull session." if 'Lo N .l fa if-' l rl ' X ff f I K is . f f- 5. gfe!tsf,- AZ gIf,5 gf 0 5 XXX! , A ,V A X f'-.n j-,iw MTA 'grit XI., fl gi A fl - SL, ' 1 ,C ti 7 yfblll , A 'Q 1 4x14 A X X fl WS?

Four years is not long in the measure of time but a lot of things happen during that period. The next four years may be your test. You are facing what foresighted men feel is the most fateful time in the history of our nation. Your country needs you as an industrious, clear-thinking and loyal citizen-to take responsibility to do things the American way. Banking is necessary to the orderly progress of affairs. Connec- tion with a good bank is an advantage. This bank may be helpful to you in your future course. EDWAR 'row-in f A ' -+" r fl BANK AN vwss SOMPANY 'N' +'sfs'sw N1 CHARLES BoEscHENs'rElN.
