H. S. from September to June. In order to keep the game going smoothly, the team is under the supervision of a very competent group. This group is the Board of Education. The board members are as follows: Mr. George Little, Mrs. M. L. Burroughs, Mr. K. C. Cunningham, Mr. E. J. Ballweg, Mr. Harry Hanser, Dr. W. B. Cox, and Mr. L. Brockmeier. Mr. Little is the new president of the board. The officials do their best to see that the teams have all the necessary equipment and instruction to play their best so that they can bring honor and glory to their Alma Mater. Page 8A DM IN IS T RAT ION ) • • Mr. Alexander is the fellow with the broad smile and a good word for everyone. Keeping the team provided with proper supervision is a big job, but Mr. Alexander has proved himself a man worthy of much credit. We, the members of the Senior Class, consider Mr. Wood as one of us, as this is his fourth year in E. H. S. He has handled all of the problems of the school in a manner which wins the confidence and admiration of all. Mr. Lewis who is the new Dean of Boys at E. H. S. this year, is well liked by all and his advice is greatly appreciated by the boys. Sociology, American History, the Hi-Y, and the Tiger are also under his direction. In Miss Sloan can be found a friend who is both understanding and loyal. She acts as a “second mother” to all of her girls. She also has the Senior Hi-Tri group and several English classes.COACHES (FA CULTY) Top Row: Gaston; Apprill; Gilbert; Briggs; Lucco Sec.

The first team is composed of seniors, the second team of juniors, while the sophomores are scrubs, and the water-boys are freshmen. TEAMS (CLASSES)FIRST TEAM SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Four short years ago—too short, as they seem now—probably one of the greatest— if not the greatest—varied assortment of child prodigies, geniuses and what have you entered the portals of E. H. S. for the first time. And. yes, dear readers, as you may have already guessed, we entered as Freshmen. After all, we future greats had to enter in some fashion and most of us decided we would start at the bottom and work up. Reservedly, we say “most of us,” because in our clan were those chosen few who wanted to start at the top as seniors. The tutors said no, and so they came back and started at the bottom with the rest of us. Well, according to that old theory that “time has to pass,” we soon found ourselves listed as Sophomores. Hot Ziggety! and Oh. Joy! Now we, too, could look over the “lowly Freshmen” with quite some disdain. My gosh, weren’t we Sophs? After all. we were practically upperclassmen! In due time, then, we were in the upperclassmen bracket. Juniors! Could it be true? By now, the class of ’46 was making itself felt. Little by little, we were easing into the drivers’ seats, for on the athletic departments’ team rosters could be seen any number of the Junior class’s names; first, in football; then came the Junior play; next, basketball was in the limelight; and last was track; not to mention Junior names on the program in assemblies, or listed as being members of the band and orchestra. Finally, the biggest day of our career had arrived. Alas and alack! We were Seniors! It hardly seemed possible that a whole three years had elapsed; that the day for which we had patiently been waiting and pointing to for so long had at last put in its appearance. Within two months after school had started we were figuring prominently in everything, and were talked about in hushed tones. We were, in short, the envy of all the other classes. But, hey wait a minute! One day we were painfully aware that our days at this old Academy of Learning were numbered. With each passing day we grew more aware of it. For all too soon we were being let out into the big world to shift for ourselves. And shift for ourselves we will, but we know we shall always fondly remember our days at old E. H. S. as the happiest, most carefree, gayest and contented days of our life.

Of all the classes of the Edwardsville High School, il is easy to see that the Class of ’47 will not be soon forgotten. After three years of practice and training, the Juniors are in perfect condition to take over the first team duties next year and to show a really winning team. We were well-seasoned to begin with and have made very rapid progress since 1943 when we came in to “pep” up the school. Our team is the largest in school and leads in many of the activities. The intelligence of this class is very great as you can tell from all the bright-looking faces or, if you need more proof, from the Honor Roll. We are generally very well-behaved; our worst habit is gum chewing. We Juniors can always put anything over well as was shown in stamp sales during the war, so this year’s Junior-Senior Prom promises to be the best ever. All in all, you have to admit that we have a pretty swell class!

S., the faculty knew that this class was destined to become the outstanding class of Edwardsville High School. Now, as Sophomores, our actions reveal this fact and more each day. We are very proud to say that we are the model class. We are told that we please everyone with our winning ways. Our class is well represented in the field of sports as well as on the honor roll and in numerous other activities. We Sophomores ax-e also eager to lend a helping hand to anyone who needs it—even the unfortunate Freshmen. Seriously—we are thankful to all our fellow students for the help, advice, and attention they have given us, and we particularly want to wish the Senior graduates success in everything they do.

S. It was our first glimpse of school life in this great school. Yes, you guessed it—we were the newest crop of Presides. We Freshmen took a lot of what the Seniors had ready for us. The Seniors really tried to take advantage of us. When we would ask them where English 1 or Algebra 1 was, they would tell us to take the nearest elevator, turn left for three rooms, look into the room on the right side of the hall, walk to the other end of the hall, take the elevator down to second floor, and the room we were hunting would be just around the corner. Yes, they fried to get the best of us, but we weren’t the type they were looking for. We weren’t green. By the middle of this year, the Seniors were even beginning to feel jealous when they saw what an interest we Freshmen were taking in sports and other school activities. They were afraid to admit that these lowest classmen were going to have a first-class football and basketball team in the year 1948, not to mention a prize-winning band and chorus. Wayne Varner President Lkto Metz Vice President Anita Hawkins Secretary-Treasurer We Freshmen have contributed our share to the many school parties; in fact, without the Freshmen, the Freshman-Sophomore Party couldn’t have been the rousing success that it was. We also have a group of Freshmen twirlers who are always ready and willing to take part in any school programs or assemblies. These are just some of the many achievements of the Freshman class of 1945, and since we are noted for our modesty, we just want to add that we think E. H. S. is a wonderful high school. We wouldn’t trade it for any school in the state, and if you upperclassmen give us the chance next year, we’ll do our best to make it even more wonderful, if possible. We’ll be looking forward to coming back next year as higher lower class-men—Sophomores, to you. Page 30HOME ROOM 221—TOP ROW—Coolbaugh, Coleman. Drda. Evans. Delicate. Funsten. Fellenstein. Eeck.

This organization, much larger than that of last year, was made up of those boys in school who like to sing and are willing to meet two days a week and sing together. The boys’ chorus has been quite busy, helping with the operetta, singing at the annual Christmas assembly, in the Lenten concert, and in assembly. It has been a real pleasure to hear these lusty male voices singing around school this year. Page 48SWING BAND The High School Swing Band has been quite active this year. This organization meets twice a week, working on standard dance band arrangements, and is made up of those students who are interested in playing popular music. The Swing Band has made numerous appearances, playing not only for our school functions, but for several civic organizations as well.

At football games the band, led by Baton Twirling Wayne Varner, paraded, made letter formations, and played Loyalty. There was a small division of the band which was called the Pep or German band which played at basketball games. The group, led by Mr. Briggs, has worked hard the past year in order to better serve E. H. S. with good music. Mr. Briggs has proved to be a good conductor and a true friend to all who have come in contact with him. lie is always willing to help those that need it and to give advice when he is called upon to do so.

Every team was scored upon bv the Tigers except East St. Louis and Wood River, the last two games of the season. The Tigers were handicapped in the Wood River game, losing it without any offensive to speak of. Two of the regular halfbacks were either slightly injured, or sidelined. Next year “Coach Tom” will have 14 returning letter-men besides some new prospects. Spring football again got in to full swing about the middle of March this year, with about 25 of the older boys out for more or less refresher course. Most of the teams in the Southwestern Conference have this same thing each year. Edwardsville Edwardsville Staunton 21 Belleville 0 Edwardsville Normandy 6 24 The green, inexperienced Tigers went down before an all-veteran team. This game served to bring out most of the boys’ faults. 31 0 This game was a—shall we say-damp one. The Bulldogs just couldn’t stop the roaring Tigers. It looked as if Coach Tom had corrected some of the boys’ faults in this one. O.ur Tigers went on a scoring spree in the last quarter to score all of their 21 points. It was nip and tuck all the way until that eventful fourth quarter which saw Schroeder score 15 of the 21 points. BACK ROW—Stille. Coach Gilbert. Weber. Jordan, Ladd. Colclasure, P. Heepke. Geers, C.

He didn’t do much pass catching, but his defensive work shone particularly bright. Poor us! He’s a senior. Otto D. Raffaelle. “Odie”, a junior, was the regular left tackle. He was one of the lightest tackles E. H. S. ever had, but when he hit you, you knew' you had been hit. Joe Rizzoli. Joe got second team All-Conference, a nomination he richly deserved. Whenever the team needed three yards or a first dow'n and ten, you could be reasonably sure that Joe could get them for it. Bill Modene. “Ape” shared the starting assignments with Weckman. He could usually be depended upon to do his share. A senior! Milton Weckman. “Mitz” is a junior, a good fast guard —something the “T” formation used by Coach Gilbert cannot do without. Bob Wehling. “Pretzel” was the only other regular, along with Schroeder, to report back from last year’s team. He got honorable mention in the All-Conference ratings. Bob Merkel. “Turk” was probably the biggest boy on the first team. At that, he only weighed in at 175. “Turk” got honorable mention on the All-Conference team and deserved it. Paul Heepke. Paul, a junior, did exceedingly well in this, his first year out. Coach Gilbert usually called on him when he took out his first team guards. Bob Schroeder. The Tigers’ only claim to fame in individuals was “Tate”. He made the All-Conference first team and also honorable mention in the state ratings. Bob Yehling. “Elmer” wras the other big gun in the Tiger’s attack. Toward the middle of the season, Coach Gilbert found that Elmer wras a runner. Charles Foehrkalb. “Chuck” wras the Tigers’ fifth man in the Tiger backfield. That is to say, whenever one of the backfield men, all except Howse, would tire or do something wrong, in would go “Chuck” to take over.Bob Geers. “Penie” made the first team guards fight hard all year to hold their positions. He was plenty rough, but didn’t have any experience. He’s a senior. Eugene Jordan. Gene was awfully little but managed always to ruin a few opposing teams’ plays when he got in the game. A senior! Donala Colelasure. “Cokie” was one of the big boys on the team. Under the tutelage of Coach Gilbert, he should turn into a fine, tough center for next season’s promising squad. Phil Weber. Phil was the second string tackle in this, his first year out. We could use him next year, but he’s a senior. James Going. Jim couldn’t break into the starting lineup, but he did play a lot of good end this year. Too bad, but he’s a senior! Nelson Henry. “Nellie” was a good runner, but is as yet inexperienced. Next season should remedy that. Chester Heepke. “Ches” got to play in only the first two games as he sustained a serious leg injury early in the season. In the spring practice, though, he was know'n as a bone crusher when he hit you. A senior! Alvin Koenig. “Al” was the reserve fullback sharing the reserve assignment with Nel Henry in one of his first years out for the team. Walter Leitner. “Walt” was another good defensive end. He and Stille should be a good pair of running mates next year. Walt is also a junior and a fine pass catcher. Bob Schaake. This was the first year that Bob was out for football. Without a doubt, he was the biggest of the 60-man squad. He weighed in at nearly 200 pounds. Bob Stille. “Stille” was a fine defensive end and, though a little green, should be a standout on next year’s squad. Jack Ladd. Jack was another good junior guard. Plenty is expected of him next season.BASKETBALL TOP ROW—R. Green, Zika. Kahman. Stewart, Raffaelle D. Gillham, Weiland, Wilhold. Heinemeier. Shaffer. Werner. Ladd. Schmittgens. SECOND ROW—Gehrig. J.

All the boys who have received a letter in any sport in E. H. S. are eligible to join this club. The boys did many things this year, including giving an assembly. They have a fine organization, and hope that it will continue to grow as it has this year.

The track squad, under the able tutelage of Coach Gilbert, had one of the most successful seasons in a good many years. The boys won three triangular meets, got second in one, and third in another, besides placing third in the Conference meet at Belleville and fourth in the Conference Relays, also at Belleville.

For the first time in many years, Edwardsville High School had a baseball team. They had a very successful season, too, winning ten and losing only three. It was considered all the more successful because ten of the fourteen lettermen were either sophomores or freshmen. Six of these ten were freshmen. Page 74IN THE SPORTSLIGHT Guess who!

A. is to teach girls good sportsmanship and loyalty through athletics. The requirements for membership are physical education and one sport each semester. Letters are awarded each year to girls having a certain number of points. Only one letter may be received each year. On Class Day the G. A. A. trophy is awarded to the senior girl who is considered to be the most outstanding member. Some of the qualifications are good sports- manship, honesty, leadership, scholastic standing, and personality. Each year the members of the G. A. A. attend a play-day, where they meet girls from other G. A. A. organizations. Our club also sends outstanding girls to a G. A. A. caini). Page 76G . A .

Many of history's greatest inventions were the attainment of some fond dream. Many of our largest industries are the result of some great vision. The DANGER lies in just dreaming,—without doing anything toward the attainment of that dream. Most people can get a real start in life in only one way—by saving money. Every dollar wasted is a dollar gone forever. It's not what you earn, but what you save, that helps you to realize your ambition.
