JUNIOR GARTNER—Editor BETTY BAUGHMAN—Assistant Editor FRED STROUD—Business Manager JIM MARKS—Advertising Manager AGNES AX—Sales Managern foreword . . . The school year of nineteen forty-four draws to a close with a nation involved in war. Winning this war is the center which absorbs our thinking and challenges all of us. The class of forty-four is ready to join the alumni in the campaign of national defense or in the classroom. Though you journey far with the cavalcade to other places and other friends, may this book bring back the ever-welcome memories of the life we knew here in 1943-44. After a year's labor, the Tiger Staff presents the nineteen forty-four Tiger. The ever-changing March of Events passes 6 in revue.ADMINISTRATION School Board, Deans, Faculty CLASSES Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen ACTIVITIES Clubs, Music, Publications, Parties, Plays ATHLETICS Track, Cheerleaders, Football, Basketball, G. A. A.The class of 1944 should be congratulated for publishing the Tiger this year. This annual provides a record of the determination of our community to provide for the future through the education of its youth despite the pressure of history's greatest war. Edwardsville has maintained schools for one hundred and twenty-three years, public schools for eighty years, and a high school since 1864. Our school was the second high school in Madison County to be accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Edwardsville was the home of the first territorial governor of Illinois and was the third town to be incorporated in the state. The Educational Policies Commission maintains that “school attendance until graduation is the best contribution to the war effort which school age youth can make. Through this book, tribute is paid to the members of this school who have stayed with their jobs here in spite of other opportunities and to the community which has made it possible for them to do so. 9Left to Right: Edward J. Ballweg; Dr. Wayne B. Cox, Secretary; Mrs. M L Burroughs; R. C. Cunningham; E. A. Alexander; J. F. Eeck, President, Harry Hanser This is the body behind the school system of our city, composed of seven members with the purpose of furthering the educational facilities. At the present time the board is very much concerned with the aiding of the war effort and has introduced several new subjects to our curriculum with that interest in mind. It is also deeply concerned with the problems that will confront the educational system in the period following the war. The members of the board are as follows: Mrs. M. L. Burroughs, Mr. R. C. Cunningham, Mr. John Eeck, Mr. Harry Hanser, Dr. W. B. Cox and Mr. E. J. Ballweg. One new member of the board is Mrs. M. L. Burroughs, who is very much concerned with the extra curricular activities becoming a regular part of the curriculum. It is her belief that these activities are needed to round out the education of the American Youth. The board will lose the services of its oldest member, Mr. R. C. Cunningham, when he retires this year. He has served on the board faithfully for the the past sixteen years. Also retiring this year is Major Clyde Fruit, who is serving in the United States Army. Major Fruit has served on the board for the last six years and his services have been of great value to the school system of this city. 10MR. ALEXANDER SUPERINTENDENT A jolly laugh—a friendly word—yes, we mean our own superintendent of schools, Mr. Alexander. Supervising the entire Edwards-ville school system is quite a large job, but under Mr. Alexander's competent guidance, all four schools have been kept running smoothly. MR. WOOD PRINCIPAL Completing his second year here at EHS, Mr. Wood has proved to be a well liked and capable principal. He has expertly managed all problems that the school has presented, and at the same time, has gained the confidence and admiration of all EHS. MR. LOVE DEAN OF BOYS Watching over and keeping up with our EHS boys is really quite a job, but Mr. Love, dean of boys, fills the position well. He is well liked by everyone, and his helpful advice is greatly appreciated by all the boys. Geometry classes and the Hi-Y are also under Mr. Love's supervision. MISS SLOAN DEAN OF GIRLS A true and understanding friend can always be found in our dean of girls, Miss Sloan. With a friendly smile and a helpful word she continues to "mother” all her girls here at EHS. Miss Sloan also teaches English and is sponsor of the Senior Hi-Tri.ELSIE SLOAN English Eastern Illinois State Teachers' College, B. E. Washington U., M. A. Northwestern U.

NORMAN NILSSON s To tell the success story of the class of '44, one would have to go way back to the September of 1940 when this famous class first entered EHS. Little did we realize, as we walked up those front steps, that it was here that we would spend the happiest years of our lives. It was like entering a new world with the rush and noise of the crowded halls, but it wasn't long before we were adding to the hub-bub in our own meek way. But time flew and before long we were sophomores. We took part in a great many social and athletic events. The days went fast and before we knew it we were representing the Junior class at EHS. We gave a play and sponsored a very successful Junior-Senior Prom. We were on our way up and our junior year served as a dress rehearsal for the grand finale that was to come. And then it came, the day when we became the seniors of EHS. We took the role very willingly and continued to make a name for our class, but as the day of graduation grew near each of us began to regret that our school life at EHS was drawing to a close. It came at last and we left with pleasant memories to carry on in the world our success in school. E N I O R S 17Alvin Arbough "Al" “You don't realize my possibilities."

In 1938 the first issue was published by the Tiger Staff and was called the Tiger Rag. Edited and published by the journalism and advanced typing classes, it is one of the most worthwhile institutions in the school. It is a mimeographed paper published every two weeks, and it is sponsored by Miss Hatscher and Miss Bergtold. The Tiger Times' main purpose is to keep the faculty, students, and their parents informed of school events and to voice the opinions of students. The purpose of the Hi-Y is to "create, maintain, and extend through the school and community high standards of Christian character." The club was organized in 1929 and has been under the sponsorship of Mr. Love since 1931. Boys who desire to join the Hi-Y are initiated through a ritual that is followed by various other Hi-Y programs in the state. The president and other officers are elected by the members and are in charge of the meetings. The officers for this year are: Jim Marks, president; Dick Brumitt, vice-president; Norman Rosenthal, secretary; John Marks, treasurer. 42Front Row: O'Connell, Fiegenbaum, Ferguson, H.

SCIENCE CLUB LATIN CLUB The Science Club is an organization composed of those students who are interested in science. Anyone who has taken a year of science may join the club, and freshmen may be elected to membership the second semester. At the weekly meeting there are discussions and demonstrations. Every year the club sponsors a lyceum, and this year's was about snakes. This is the third year the Science Club has held a fair. The officers of the organization are Wesley Seals, president; Edward Ferguson, vice-president; Helen Springer, secretary; Junior Gartner, treasurer. The sponsors are Miss Hunter and Miss Stoldt. The Latin Club this year was led by Consuls Martha May and John Smith. Dolores Sheppard served as Scriba, Frances Davenport as Quaestor (secretary and treasurer to the non-Latin-speaking population), and Miss Gewe as the sponsor. Various types of programs were enjoyed at their meetings, including reports on the life of the Romans. A new game, Vici, much like Bingo, proved very popular. A Roman banquet was held, and again toga clad Romans (upper classmen) were served by respectful slaves (first year students) in true Roman fashion, with much washing of hands due to lack of eating utensils. 43Back Row: Miss Bibby, Lewis, N.

MIXED CHORUS GIRLS' CHORUS This organization, made up of approximately one hundred boys and girls, meets twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. In the fall rehearsals were devoted to four-part arrangements of popular pieces, then to Christmas music, and finally to the highlight of the year—the operetta. After that the attention of the chorus was turned to the spring festival. The mixed chorus is under the able direction of Mrs. Lois Farson, who is serving her freshman year at EHS. It is hoped that through the influence of the Glee Club department more and more students will become interested in music. This division of the music department is composed entirely of girls, and from this Girls' Glee Club has been selected a Senior Girls' Sextette and a Sophomore Girls' Quartette This year all over the country women have taken over the jobs left by the men who felt it their duty to get into this world conflict. The music department is no exception. When Mr. Ralph Shannon laid down his baton to answer the call of his Uncle Sam, Mrs. Lois Farson took it up, and is carrying on gallantly. 46Front Row: Clark, Hance, Nemnich, May, Heady, Coroniotis, Fagan, Figge.

Its members are chosen according to the blending quality of their voices and of course their musical ability. It is the ambition of all the hard working chorus members to become a part of this choir. This organization presents the annual Christmas assembly, which has been considered one of the most impressive during the year. Mrs. Lois Farson also directs the A Cappella Choir. SWING BAND These jivin' hep-cats provide the "hot" music of the department. Along with the ever-popular “One-O'clock Jump,'' "Johnson Rag," "Tune Town Shuffle," and “I Hope Gabriel Likes My Music" rank high with the other • “cats" of EHS. Jim Flavin still seemed to be the favorite, and the band and swing band sorely missed him when he left in March for the Air Corps. Mrs. McKinney is also the director of the Swing Band, and her choice of the swing tunes for the orchestra this year were “solid" with the entire student body. 47THE E.H.S.

Mrs. Lucille McKinney is a very jolly and talented musician. Her talent has won the confidence of many of her pupils. Mrs McKinney is succeeding Mr. Ralph Shannon, who is now doing Red Cross work. At the beginning of this school year the band officers were elected. The officers are Jim Flavin, president; Jack Broderick, vice-president; Bob Wehling, secretary-treasurer; Dick Brumitt, stage manager; Dorothy Wester-holt, librarian. The officers make plans for social affairs and business of the band. They plan a party for the band members each spring. During the football season the band did original drills under the leader- 48THE E.H.S. BAND ship of a new drum major, Elda Hering. The flashing batons of the twirlers made an attractive front for the band marching on their way to their goal of entertainment. The band gave their annual Vesper concert in the spring. They also played for class receptions for parents, P. T. A., and did their share of work in making the music festivals a big hit. A new type of music developed in our own EHS band this year. Since the war, we Americans are turning toward our own American compositions for our music, such as ''Showboat" by Kern and ' Boogie Woogie" by Walters. The students all liked this type of music and enjoyed playing it. The annual honor pin awards were presented in the spring. The highest students or upper ten per cent were awarded either a two or four year pin. To receive these pins the members must hand in points for practice, lessons, approved radio programs, etc. These points are then kept by the librarian and at the end of the year the high ten per cent are announced. To receive a four year pin you must be in the upper ten per cent for all four years. The members really work to receive these pins. All band members will agree that band is the best extra subject you can take. It gives a knowledge of music and helps you decide whether you want it for your profession. 49Editor................

She is one of our most attractive and popular seniors. During her four years at Edwardsville High School she has taken a very active part in all school affairs, holding several important offices in her class and various clubs. Miss Fink was nominated by the football team and was elected by the entire student body. Escorted by Mr. William Aksamit, she made a very striking picture in her white dress and traditional purple robe. She was the seventh queen to grace the throne of our football proms, and we all agree that she was one of the most beautiful and gracious queens the school has ever seen. 52The Homecoming weekend got off to a rousing start with the bonfire November 11, where yells and talks were given. Friday the student body voted on the three candidates for queen nominated by the football boys. The girls chosen were Beverly Fink, Carol May, and Nina Jane Heady. That afternoon an assembly was given by the team to get the students in the mood for the parade which followed. That night the Homecoming football game was played which completed the 1943 season. The climax of the week came Saturday night when the impressive Football Prom was held with Jim Flavin's orchestra providing the music.

Goblins! Beautiful ladies! Yes, it’s the first stop on our 1944 social cavalcade. It happened on the night of October 30, a dark dreary night. The students ventured through the screaking doors into the dimly lit gym. The haunting echoes of Jim Flavin's orchestra added to the scary atmosphere, as queens danced with ghosts and clowns with witches. Everyone peered closely at everyone else, trying to figure out who was who, but the suspense continued until it came time for the grand march. Then came the fun! The winners were picked and everyone unmasked. Some of those who were chosen because of their clever costumes were Carmen Nemnich and Dick Beardon as the most beautiful girl and the handsomest boy, Harold Lange as a rabbit, Frank Deitz as a South Seas native girl, and Mrs. Sands as a Bugologist. Refreshments were served and Halloween was drawn to a very successful close. 54SADIE HAWKINS PARTY In true Leap Year style the EHS girls again made the annual Sadie Hawkins Party a smash hit. All the gals and guys dressed up in their colorful plaid shirts, jeans, or short gingham dresses, so as to be comfortable when they jitterbugged to the jive of Boots Wilhawk's Orchestra. Peggy Arbuckle and Jim Marks made a very handsome couple as they walked to the stage to receive the titles of Daisy Mae and Lil' Abner. Last year's king of Dogpatch, Dick Bridwell, placed a crown of vegetables on Jim's head. About 10:30 there was an eager stampede for the hall, as everyone rushed to get refreshments. After that, dancing was resumed until 11:30 when "Home Sweet Home" was played, and all of us departed for home—or the Rock Patch. Thus we had completed another successful step in the Tiger Cavalcade. 55Another enjoyable event of our social cavalcade was the Junior Class play, "Early to Bed, Early to Rise," which was given on the evening of November 19. Under the capable direction of Miss Aletha Smiser the cast gave a very successful performance. THE CAST: Patsy Fuller ..... Marion Fuller Bobby Fuller ..... Abbie Fuller ..... Everett Fuller ...

But all is not hard work—at least most of the boys agreed at the dinner held in their honor last November that Ballweg's angel food pie a la mode was "easy goin' The student body seems especially to like the kind of service rendered by these boys as is indicated by the sampling of conversation around Room 102, "Goody, we're going to have a motion picture today!" No activity is complete without the sound system. When there is a football game, out come the ladders, up go the wires, and above all, the amplifier perches high on a convenient pole. Preparations for inside activities are not as difficult—simply a matter of plugging in microphones and the remote control and turning on the switch. Some like it loud, some like it soft. The control boy realizes this, so he turns it on until it whistles; then everyone glares and he is forced to turn it down again. This is just an unseen aid which some people forget is there—but how they complain if the sound boy isn't there! Mr. Mulch serves as the faculty adviser.DALE SMITH The stout little fellow with the friendly smile, that’s Dale C. Smith, our new basketball coach. He has plenty to smile about as his teams had amassed sixty-two wins against only fourteen defeats in his three years of coaching, previous to his arrival at Edwardsville. The past year has added another credit to his record. Mr. Smith also serves as assistant football and track coach. JAMES GROUTAGE Coach Groutage came to us this year after having coached at Canton and Cuba, Illinois. He took over the reins as head football and track coach and served as assistant coach in basketball. He has a distinct style of his own in teaching the boys, and because of this he quickly gained the admiration of all of the boys that played under him, both as a coach and a friend. 62FIRST ROW: Heinemeier.

The 1943 version o{ the Tiger "Thinclads" was indeed quite sucess-ful as they wound up in third place in the conference standing, finishing behind East Side and Belleville. Although the team was good, even more outstanding were the individual stars, Harold Shaffer and Bennett Hensley, as each of these boys won his particular event in the district meet. They entered the State Track Meet held at the University of Illinois late in May. Although neither of the boys placed in this meet, it was indeed an honor for us to have two participants representing Edwardsville at Champaign. The juniors fared equally well as they upped second place in the Conference Meet and these boys should give EHS an excellent record in 1944.

The brother and sister act of Lamoine and Delores Schoenleber were the new additions to the yell leaders for the past season. Vernon became ill during the year and his position was capably filled by Jack Broderick. For their excellent leadership and sportmanship, in victory or in defeat, we offer them thanks! 64 Front Row: Lange, Coolbaugh, Bange, Woods, Haywood, Beck. Nelson, Rosenthal, White. Rizzoli.

The beginning of school last fall found approximately fifty-five grid-men anxiously awaiting the call for football practice and a chance to meet their new coach. Just as many other things were handicapped as a result of the war, so was our football squad. Six returning lettermen were called to the service during the summer. Included in those missing from this year's pigskin eleven were George Koch and Edward Winkle, co-captains of the team. To fill in for these boys, Norman Nilsson and Dick Bridwell were chosen as honorary co-captains to lead the team. Coach Groutage did an excellent job of filling in the gaps left by the departing gridiron heroes, and the team mcde a good showing for themselves despite their comparatively poor record. What the fellows lacked in experience and size, they made up for in fight. Many of the boys who were playing their first year of football were called upon to take the place of a regular during the season, and always each responded to the best of his ability. To you boys, we say thanks for doing your share in keeping the spirit of football alive here at EHS. 65GILLESPIE 19 TIGERS 12 AKSAMIT - ENT? BRUM'ITT - END LANCE - GUARP NORRIS - GUARD WOODS - BACK ROSENTHAL - TACKLE STROUP - GUARD ONTKO - BACK P.SCHMIDT - BACK COOLBAUGH - CENTER Playing the first game under their new coach, the Tigers showed many signs of inexperience and stage-fright in bowing to a fast stepping Gillespie eleven. Connecting on a touchdown pass in the third quarter, the locals forged ahead only to lose their lead as Gillespie charged light back with another tally. STAUNTON 13 TIGERS 27 Displaying their offensive power in grand style, the Tigers marched to an impressive victory over the Bull Dogs. Rolling up an early lead, the EHS boys coasted in to an easy victory, as they held Staunton to a lone touchdown until late in the fourth quarter. Paul Schmidt scored two of the Tiger touchdowns. COLLINSVILLE 0 TIGERS G In one of the season's most thrilling games, the Tigers pushed over a touchdown in the final period to eke out a 6 to 0 victory over our rivals, the Kahoks. Bob Hartung plunged over the marker and the Tigers came marching back "to the Collinsville ten yard stripe as the gun sounded ending the game. GRANITE CITY 21 TIGERS G Opening their home conference season, the Tigers gave the local fans a good show the first half as Norman Nilsson took a pass from Paul Schmidt for a touchdown to give the locals a lead. Granite came back strong the second half and pushed over the deciding markers to win by two touchdowns. MADISON 13 TIGERS 19 Once again demonstrating their offensive power, the Tigers rolled up a three touchdown lead before the reservesallowed the Trojans to rack up two tallies in the final period and throw a scare into Tiger fans. They were on their way to another touchdown when the final gun sounded with Madison in scoring position. EAST ST. LOUIS 41 TIGERS 0 East St. Louis, rated as the number one team in the state, lived up to their expectations as they ran away from our Tigers 41 to 0. The EHS boys were greatly handicapped, though, as Carl Ontko was injured early in the game and was sidelined along with Bob Hartung and Norm Nilsson who had been injured previously. WOOD RIVER 8 TIGERS 6 After leading Wood River throughout the game, the Tigers eased up in the last minute of play and allowed the Oilers to push over a touchdown and eke out an 8 to 6 victory over our heart-broken Tigers. Scoring early in the second period, the Tigers held the lead until the fatal last minute. BELLEVILLE 27 TIGERS 0 After holding the undefeated Maroons on even terms for two and a half periods, the Tigers finally were down and Belleville coasted in to a 27 to 0 win over our weary grid-ders. Reserve strength played a big part in wearing the Tigers down as the Maroons pushed over three touchdowns in the final quarter. ALTON 19 TIGERS 0 Displaying a true Homecoming spirit, the Tigers held off the highly favored Alton Redbirds for two and a half periods before allowing the Hilltopers to cross the goal line. Four times in the first half the Tigers advanced within the Redbird twenty yard line only to be held for downs. Fred Stroud was sidelined for this game, along with Bob Hartung, because of injuries. BECK - FA"KFront Row: Schneider, Harris, Nilsson, Marks, Schroeder, Rosenthal. Second Row: Coach Groutage, Marks. Schmidt, Johnson, Runge, Ketcham, Henderson. Coach Smith. After a slightly disastrous football schedule, the Tigers turned their thoughts toward basketball with a bright outlook for a successful season. Practice began late in October, as only squad members participated in football. This extra prepping gave the Tigers adequate time to acquaint themselves with their new coach and his new style of play. The local boys made quite a name for themselves as they hung up many impressive victories. The first semester was climaxed by capturing second place in the Paris Holiday Tournament. Rated as the 'team to beat' in the Conference, the EHS basketball team rang up six consecutive loop wins before hitting a slump and dropping three straight games to end up in second place behind a team that they had beaten twice, Collinsville. Hitting their stride once more, the Tigers regained early season form and were ranked the 14th best team in the state as they went into the Regional Tournament held here at EHS. Hoping to make the fans forget about losing the conference, the Tigers tried too hard and were upset by Granite City in the first round. Nevertheless, the 1944 edition of the basketball team will go down in history as one of the most outstanding teams ever to represent the Edwards-ville High School. 68Front Row: Colclasure, Daech, Henderson, Marks, Gehrig, Johnson, Gillham, Lange, Ellis.

His great offensive ability gave him a unanimous position on the all-conference five. He could shoot, pass, dribble and rebound along with the best of them. WTT.I-TF HARRIS—Willie came to us this year from Alhambra and fitted in perfectly with our style of play. He was second in team scoring, playing the other pivot post with Jim. He received all-conference rating. NORMAN NILSSON—Norm was the rebounder and defensive man of the team. He could score if necessary but usually preferred to pass to a team mate. He ranked third high in team scoring and was placed on the allconference team. 70NORMAN ROSENTHAL—Rosey' was the fourth man of the team and played very good ball at times, but was hampered throughout the season by illness. He was a clever ball handler and his being left handed made him even more deceptive. BOB SCHROEDER—After weeks of searching for his fifth man, Coach Smith finally conceded the post to Bob. Bob is destined to become a great baii player in the year and a half remaining during which he is eligible. All he lacked this year was experience. RAY SCHNEIDER—Ray was the pepperbox of the team and was fast as lightning. Whenever the team wasn't clicking, in went little Ray to settle (Continued on page 83) 71 Front Row: Corrington, Wayne, Zimmerman, Finke, Schroeder, Nix. Huelskamp, Grinstead. Schoen-leber, Schwalb.

A. is to get more girls interested in athletics. It teaches them good sportsmanship and loyalty. Any girl who takes physical education and one sport each semester may become a member. Letters are awarded each year to those girls having a certain number of points. One letter may be received each year. This year's officers were elected from the junior and senior classes. The president and vice-president, however, must be seniors. The board members, who take charge of the various sports, are elected from all the classes. Every other Thursday meetings are held but special meetings may be called for parties and banquets. Programs are prepared by a different committee each meeting. Records of G. A. A. activities, parties, and banquets are kept in the file which any G. A. A. girl may consult. 72At the end of the year a trophy is awarded to the senior girl who is most outstanding in G. A. A. The qualifications which are considered when choosing this girl are good sportsmanship, loyalty, honesty, leadership, scholastic standing, athletic, and personality. Two important events of the year are the G. A. A. Alumnae Banquet and Senior Farewell Party. Near the first of the school year the freshmen and new members are initiated, and later a party is given for them. In May the girls from the G. A. A. in the eighth grade are invited to a play-day in the gym. Each year the club sends the newly-elected president and other outstanding girls to G. A. A. camp where they meet girls from other G. A. A. organizations and learn about their activities. G. A. A.

An exceptionally good left hand dribbler, he should become an outstanding player in his remaining year and a half. BOB RUNGE—Bob was one of the best defensive players on the squad, and should he learn to improve his shooting, he should become the leader of next year's team. EUGENE BURNS—Eug' became eligible at mid-year and fitted into the Tiger machine very well. He helped the team out on numerous occasions by taking the place of one of the regulars. GORDON HENDERSON—Gordon was another pepperbox of the team and his speed and fight in a reserve role came in handy more than once. With more experience he will become a valuable asset to next year s Tigers. MARLOWE KETCHAM—Marlowe, a letterman of last year, was hampered throughout the season by an injury received during football and was of little service to this season's squad. JOHN MARKS—John is expected to take over next season where his big brother Jim left off this year. A good shot and ballhandler, John is expected to become one of the leaders of next year's quintet. CHARLES SCHMIDT—Red' was bothered during the season by a trick knee, but whenever he was able, he always gave a good account of himself when relieving one of the regulars. GLENN JOHNSON—Glenn was one of the most improved boys on the squad and worked himself up during the season, until he became a first string reserve as the season rolled along. He should play an important part in next year's offense. BOB GEERS—Bobby was the manager of this year's team and was well liked by all of the boys. He was assisted by Don Colclasure, Dave Ellis, and Kenneth Gehrig. JIM DAECH—Little Jim', the smallest man on the team, excels in ball handling and should become an expert in the remaining two years during which he is eligible. Norm Rosenthal: I always do my hardest work before breakfast. Jim Marks: What's that? Norm: Getting up. Cooper: What's that odor I smell? Mr. Gaston: That's fertilizer. Cooper: (in amazement) For land's sake! Mr. Gaston: That's right. Dorothy Werner: I don't believe any woman could be so fat. Melba: What makes you think so? Dorothy: I read in a paper about an English woman who lost two thousand pounds. 83Compliments of Compliments of F. W. WOOLWORTH CO. EDW.
