Each year it is the desire
of the staff to create a bigger
and better annual than those
of previous years. 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

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
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.

built machine. Hs activities do not include

secretary ot the Southwest: Wrence.
I. I. LOVE

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
Dean ol Girls

possible. Besides this and her classes, she
directs the Senior Play.

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
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!

In the memorable year. nineteen hundred and thirty-eight, E. H. 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
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.

Wait a minute, please!! 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.

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
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.

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.

Organized and supervised by Mr. Blodgett, the Student
Council strives to bring democracy into our school. 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.

"We build the ladder by which we rise." This is the
motto of the Hi-Tri. This organization is for all the girls of
E. H. S. There are no pledges. no promises, no dues. The
aim of the Hi-Tri is to create friendliness, courtesy, pleasure.
and success. The club is sub-divided within the school as
to classes. there being the Freshman. Sophomore. Iunior.
and Senior Hi-Tri. The council. which is pictured on the
opposite page, is corn-posed of girls elected from each class.
They deal with the problems of the Hi-Tri as a whole. The
Hi-Tri had many social events throughout the year. The
main events were as follows:
Hi-Tri Weiner Roast and Campfire
Mother and Daughter Banquet
Sadie Hawkins Party
Farewell to Seniors
The Stamp Club is an organization for the study ot
geography, history, and biography through the study oi
stamps. The issues of commemorative stam-ps each year has
enabled the club to produce great interest in the happenings
of the world.
Auctions are held at least once each month, thus enabling

TISEH TALES STAFF
This year the E. H. S. 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.

Due to the large enrollment of farm boys in E. H. S. an
agricultural course has been added this year. Along with
this new department the F. F. A. was organized. This is
not m-erely a local club. It is part of a national organization
of farm boys studying vocational agriculture in the public
high schools throughout' the United States. 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. The club prom-otes individual proiects
and is a convenient way for all the farm boys "to get to-
gether and compare notes."

The Science Club offers science students the opportunity
to increase their scientific knowledge and to develop skills
and hobbies. Meetings are held once each week during
which time lectures, demonstrations, experiments, and field
trips are held. Membership has been lim-ited to pupils who
have taken at least one year of science.
One project undertaken by the club was an assembly
held in February. The theme behind it was the elements
that make up a human being. The "Mad Professor" lWilbur
Gehringl proceeded to mix the elements together which
finally produced a pretty girl in old fashioned dress. The
club also sponsored an interesting and novel lyceum about
electricity on April lst.

The Cheer Club Committee is composed of two members
elected from each class. plus the cheer leaders. The com-
mittee has a big ioh to do in that they are responsible lor
presenting a weekly assembly or pep meeting. Each mem-
ber of the committee personally sponsored several assem-
blies with the assistance ol talent selected from their class.
Since it becomes rather difticult to think up new ideas lor
each coming assembly. the committee let each organization
in school sponsor one or more assemblies.
Besides all the assemblies they presented, they also
supervised all Homecoming activities and the Football Prom.
This required all the work ol publicizing the event and then
going to work to decorate the gym and fulfill the numerous
other duties needed in making it a success. The committee
deserves a lot of credit for their fine work in putting on
interesting assemblies and other successful events through-
out the year.

creative dramatics and in the appreciation of good drama
through participation in plays. Four meetings are held each
month. One meeting is devoted to the study of the prob-
lems of the production staff and one meeting to the study
of the problems of the actor. Attendance at one of these
study meetings entitles a member to attend the business
meeting and the program meeting. The club regularly pre-
pares several assembly programs to present to the entire

As you gaze upon this masterpiece of editorial art you will undoubtedly
wonder what group ol "crackpots" could concoct such a mass of foolish
propaganda, yet on yonder page lie photographs ol these specimens. fSilly-
looking, aren't they?D But behind those diabolical expressions lies an abund-
ant amount ol brain matter. 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

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
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.

squad as they easily won. The score: East Side 651!2, Granite 20, Edwards-

This blazing headline capped the most brilliant season yet witnessed by
Edwardsville football fans. 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

Victory came to the Tigers in their first fracas of the season, as they
defeated Gillespie 6-U on the latter's field. 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. It was a fine victory that destroyed
Wood River's hopes of a championship.

The excitement of a sensational football season had scarcely died away
until basketball had begun. 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.

Held on Highland's spacious floor, the Tigers annexed the Regional crown
after some very exciting battles. 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.

Wood River and Edwardsville entered the Sectional as top-heavy favor-

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.

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
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.

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.
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.

Under the expert guidance of director Ralph M. 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.

Organized for the first time in the school's history. the A Cappella Choir
is proving a very successful project.
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!

This year the student body of E. H. 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
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
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.

UPEHETTA-" Waltz Dream
This year the Glee Clubs. under the direction of Ralph Shannon. presented
the ever-popular operetta. "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.

On the night of April 17th, the Senior Class presented a three-act comedy
which was exceptionally good. 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.

The Iunior Class's presentation of this fine play by Clifford Goldsmith
was a remarkable success. 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. In the end things turned out entirely
for the best with Henry taking his girl to the school's spring dance.

It was the night of October 31st. 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
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
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
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.

On October 18th, E. H. 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.

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,
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

SADIE HAWHI 5' DAY
"Yoo-hoo, Ii'l Abner!" "Ah's a' comin', Daisy Mae." 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
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!
"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.
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:
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.

Another assembly of the year was one given by the F. F. A. 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.

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
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.

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.

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.

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."
