 To help keep these and other memories bright and vivid, we have composed a scrapbook oi school liie with the help of paste, paper, pencils, and a lot of patience. We hope that in later years when you uncover your dusty 1953 yearbook in the attic it will help you recapture some oi the fun, excitement, and happiness of your past school year. THE TIGER 1953 Our high school days will always remain indelible in our thoughis and memories. There are lots oi little things that we will always remember about our school; tor instance . . . the bustling beehive in the oiiice on Monday mornings . . . bean dances in the gym . . . 7th hours . . . interesting lyceums and peppy (?) pep assemblies . . . contused Freshies and suave Seniors . . . the satisfied feeling after an especially good report card . . . books and beaux . . . basketball games and Mr. Brock . .SCHOOL a GH Doesn t anyone ever remember to bring his locker key? — Main office. Pasted in our from a typical day Four Before school finds us renting locker keys, looking for books, rushing to meetings, and hurrying to Roll Room. Finally the chaos subsides and 8:30 finds us at the start of a new school day. Announcements are read and then—oh, oh, there's the buzzer and it's off to our morning classes. "Santa’s little helpers." —Shop. Five They come up with anything from posters to portraits. — Art Class.Complicated new machines intrigue and interest some. —Physics Lab. Six Studies take u school day but noAll through the morning we dream about lunch time and at noon the race is on as we run down to the gym, stand in line for tokens, and then sit down, relax, and eat. Due to the unwritten law that girls sit on one side of the gym and boys on the other, the gym lobby is the place to talk, compare jokes, and just horse around. Grand Central Station has nothing on this at noon! —Gym Lobby.Don't forget to let the emergency brake out! Driver Ed. car. The interests o are shown in our FAfilttTaking care of a library isn't as easy as it looks. —Library Workroom After lunch, It's back to work again as fourth hour begins. Occasionally the regular schedule is pleasantly interrupted by an assembly or club meeting. Everybody looks forward to these, although regular classes are also instructive and interesting. And she wonders why we re never in our seats when the bell rings! - Sophomore EnKlish Class. NineNo loafing in this class. —Mechanical Drawing Claes. Our scrapbook variety of classes Ten"Well, you see, Mr. Brock, it’s like this." —Principal's Office. One class runs into the next with time in between for a quick drink at the fountain (if you're lucky enough to be near the front of the line) and a hasty "hi” to your friends. Once in a great while Mr. Brock calls some one in for a friendly conference to straighten out individual problems and difficulties. El even The watering trough. —Lower Hall.Stan, the Man—hero hour. Alton Baseball Diamond TwelveTakes Two to Tango, also jitterbug. Bean Dance. After school, some go straight home while others stay for athletics and still others can be found sipping a nickel coke and "chewing the fat" at Ballweg's. In the evening, the building is often the scene of games and dances. Finally the day is ended and the building is emptied except for the janitors, whose work is just beginning. The "pause that refreshes" after a hard day at school. Drugstore Fountain. ThirteenClockwise: Mr. Clyde W. Fruit, secretary: Mr. Albert Cassens, president; Mr. Chester Buchta; Mr. Wilbur Suhre; Mr. E. L. Alexander, superintendent of schools; Mr. Rudolph B. Hans; Mr. William J. Bode; and Mr. Lamont Heidinger. Board of Education What do these smiling faces mean to you — qualified teachers, pleasant buildings, a smoothly run school? These things and many more are ably and cheerfully handled by our seven-member Board of Education, and we commend its members on the fine job they are doing. Superintendent Mr. E. L. Alexander is known to all, from kindergarten to high school. Through the years we have learned to trust in his judgment and kindliness and, as high school students, we have not found our confidence misplaced. We thank him for the contribution he has made to our happy school memories. Mr. E. L. Alexander SixteenPrincipal No one can deny that Mr. Brock is an extremely busy man, but he is ready with a friendly smile to talk to any student any time. Friendliness seems to be his most outstanding characteristic. Although he isn't really stem, he maintains discipline at all times and holds the respect of everybody. It is necessary for him to perform a variety of tasks, from speaking at assemblies and chaperoning bean dances to solving game ticket problems and cosponsoring Student Council activities. His work is really appreciated by the students even though it isn't always made apparent by their actions. Mr. George F. Brock Mr. Richard Erzen Miss Elsie J. Sloan ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL A newcomer to E.H.S. this year, Mr. Erzen has quickly won his place in the students' hearts. One of his many jobs is to handle the "tardies” and other delinquents, which he does-in a kindly manner. The fact that his work may sometimes go unobserved is a tribute to his efficiency, and may be noted by his lack of enemies. DEAN OF GIRLS Going to college or looking for a job? Miss Sloan is willing and able to help you select the right school or the right type of job for your own personal needs. She can be found at her desk long before school and long after, her friendly smile putting you at ease as you discuss your problems with her.

Twenty-oneClass Officers Don Koenig, vice president Gerry Svoboda, secretary Rich Ladd, treasurer Rich Mueller, president (seated) Senior Class History It doesn't seem very long ago that about one hundred and forty students entered E.H.S. to begin four years of outstanding leadership in scholastics, athletics, music, dramatics, and many other activities. As Freshmen, we soon proved that our class would be one of which to be proud. However, it was during our Sophomore year that upperclassmen and teachers really began noticing the class of 1953. We presented an outstanding Freshman-Sophomore party, featuring a Brown Derby theme and, for the first time in our school's history, the basketball team went to State with one of our class members, Jim Barton, on the team. While Juniors, we produced the humorous play, "Our Miss Brooks" and the Junior-Senior Prom (remember the "Showboat?") was a great success, if we do say so ourselves. This same year the baseball team had a near-perfect season and went to State with quite a few Junior players. W,....... vam Dark hair and dancing feet . . . flashing eyes and hands in motion . . . changeable moods ... an enthusiastic sports fan and an athlete, herself ... a deep respect for the spiritual side of life ... a loyal friend •— In our hearts that's how we will always remember Joan Serfas. Without a doubt, though, the year of 1952-1953 was the most outstanding of all. During the first three years the class had been developing their leaders and then as Seniors it set a good example for all other classes to follow. The Senior play, "No More Homework", was a big hit and all sports ended with very successful records making our Senior year at E.H.S. complete.

Led by our new coach, Benny Isselhardt, our Tiger football team had a very successful season as it wound up with a record of 6 won, 1 tied, and 1 lost. Our Tigers got off to an impressive start as they downed Granite City 32-8. Houston "Dub-bie" Lowry, using his ability to carry a football so far so fast, was the sparkplug of this game. Not quite so hot as they were in the first game, the Tigers almost let the second game slip away from them. However, they proved their worth as they sped past the Wood River Oilers 12-7. Continuing to pile up victories, the fighting Tigers racked up another as they defeated the Gillespie Miners 19-7. Then came the downfall—namely, our traditionally fierce rivals, the Collinsville Kahoks. Even though it was a pretty even game, the scoreboard at the end showed the score to be 19-7 in favor of—you guessed it—the Kahoks. This ended an eleven game winning streak which was started the previous year. Football managers and coaches Roblce Thorpe, manager. Mr. Lucco. coach. Mr. iHaelhardt. head coach. Mr. Hutton, coach. Jack Boyer, manager. After licking their wounds from the last game, our ferocious Tigers snapped back to victory by serving the Roxana Shells a 27-21 defeat. Bob Leitner's leaping intercept at the end of the game saved it from being a tied ball game. Then came the "upset of the year" — our spectacular victory over the Alton Redbirds. Although outweighed by twenty pounds per man, we roared on to victory as the winning touchdown was made in the last minute of the game, making the final score 25-19. In our next game, ’ the Staunton Bulldogs didn't know what hit them as we devoured them by the lopsided score of 40-8. We ended the season on a slightly unpopular note as we tied with Lanphier of Springfield 25-25.DAVE BLAEUER DON SMITH bob SOUTHARD EMIL CROOK BOB LEITNER FRANK TWENTE EVERETT HESS BILL PENELTONQueen Emogene and King Rich — beginning their reign.

Our queen was vivacious Emogene Schmidt, who was escorted by our favorite football star, Rich Mueller. Special Maids were Joan Dorsey and Glenda Weber. Many alumni and students were seen dancing to the music of Walt Schlemer's orchestra. EXPECT U Seventy-fiveJunior Play ‘The Little Dog Laughed” Don't tell me there's a psychologist running around in this school! Yes, you're right. It's Laurie Huntington (Mary Lou Meikamp) home from college with plenty of new ideas to torment her parents (Ginny Riggs and Bob Mai lory) and her brother, Wally (Bob Wehrle). "The Little Dog Laughed" is the name of the play and how could it be otherwise, for no one could help but laugh at the hilarious antics in the Huntington household when Laurie decides to give her mother's society friends the famous "ink blot" test. The results are so startling that Laurie's family decide to teach her a much-needed lesson. There are hard feelings on both sides for quite some time, but all ends happily with even the audience agreeing that this year's Junior play was one of the best ever. A guy can t have any privacy!

This year, per tradition, a grand march was held and all the "characters" (and we do mean "characters"!) paraded around the gym to the strains of Bob Dillon's quintet. By the way, could anyone tell us where Ethard got his long, pink underwear? This information might be needed for future use. Seventy-sevenWinter Varsity Although they didn't go quite as far as they would have liked, the basketball squad ended a very successful season with a record of twenty-four wins and five losses and a tie for first place in the Southwestern conference. Nine players and two managers were awarded letters at the end of the season. Jim Barton, captain of the squad, made the All-conference and All-district first teams and he, Bob Gregor, and Don Ohl were chosen to be on the All-Star team at the Mount Vernon tournament. Early in the season the Tigers placed third in the Madison County tourney after losing to Alton in the first game. Basketball . . . Christmas Vespers . . . G.A.A. Initiation . . .

In fact, it seems that the ball has just now started rolling—the basketball, that is. The season has gotten off to a fine start and looks as if it will be a successful one. E.H.S. social life is now in full swing in spite of the shadow of approaching semester exams. Oh well, everyone is sure to pass all his tests in fine style anyway. First place in the Mount Vernon Christmas tournament was snagged by the Bengals as they walked off with a 65-56 victory over the host team. After losing a heartbreaker to Pinckneyville on their home court, the E.H.S. cagers snapped back by defeating Madison with a sell-out crowd in attendance. Revenge for an earlier Collinsville defeat was gained as the fighting Tigers walloped the Kahoks, 62-49, giving Edwardsville a tie for first place with East St. Louis in the Southwestern conference. After this game the Tigers were rated fifth in the State, missing fourth place by only two points. Basketball Ronnie Kessman, Bill Mateyka. Mnnnie Jackson. Don Ohl. Jim Barton. Jim DugRer.

Probably the most exciting game of the season was the last game of the regular schedule, a repeat performance with Mount Vernon. After a tough struggle the Tigers came out on top, 71-70. The biggest disappointment of the year was the Regional tournament championship game which the Tigers lost to Collinsville by the score of 76-57.

Boys are strictly forbidden at these two allfemale parties and the girls really let their hair down and have a good time. Dancing to the sweetest music this side of Glen Carbon provided most of the entertainment for the Kid Party this year while at the G.A.A. affair the Freshmen furnished lots of laughs for the upperclassmen with their initiation antics.

Ah, spring is here at last—that magic season when birds flit gaily over the tennis courts and students catch cold from going without their coats. Boys are out in flocks playing baseball and tennis or running track, and the girls are hunting madly for dates to the Sadie Hawkins party. Seniors begin to be a bit thoughtful, not quite knowing whether to be glad or sorry that their days at E.H.S. are coming to an end. Baseball The baseball team enjoyed one of its most successful seasons. It won 16 games and lost only two. Each of these was lost by only one run. The Tigers brought home many trophies. Among them were those won for placing first in the Southwestern Conference, first in District (on page 12 we see Stan making the winning tally against Alton), and first in Section; the latter qualified them for State, where they lost their first game to Morton of Cicero by a score of 4-5.

Don Lexow, Arlyn Schwalb, and Lloyd Dustmann represented the school in singles matches. Grebel and Buhr, Brummitt and Rad-ecke paired up to play doubles. At the District Tournament Edwards-ville won third place. The two doubles teams and one single player were defeated in the semi-finals.

They won the County Track and Field Meet, placed third in the Conference Track and Field Meet, won three dual meets, and placed well in all the others. Of the 13 boys who lettered, seven were outstanding— Houston Lowry, who was county champ in the 100 and 220, district champ, and sixth in state in the 100 yard dash; Bert DeSherlia, county and district champ in the mile, who also was sent to state where he placed 12th; Ron Harris, who set a new school record in the Vi mile with 2:05.1 and was county champ; and the relay team, composed of Rich Penelton, Jim Barton, Joe Smoltz and Houston Lowry, which led in the county. Since only three lettermen graduated, the remaining boys and the new thin clads are expecting another good season. Row l Lea Howerton. Bob Robinson. Kent Ahrens. Ronnie Harris. Bert De Sherlla.

Senior Play The Seniors have done it again—this time with a play that was really tops. "No More Homework" is the story of the zany adventures of Student Council President Pamela Jones (Bev Neuhaus), her boy friend, Buzz Bailey (A1 Wentz), and the school trouble maker, Shalimar Ames (Glenda Weber), when they try to run the school for a day in the absence of the proper authorities. They have many suggestions from various students, but unfortunately none that is very practical. Several teachers, along with a cleaning woman, janitor, and pompous school board president, help to complicate the plot, and romances crop out in unexpected places. Pam, already the busiest girl in school, finds that she has a peck of trouble on her hands. Those who saw the play, however, agree that these troubles are all satisfactorily worked out and that the performers all did justice to their roles.

Who knows what we’ll be doing next year—going to college, working or perhaps even getting married.

Without their support many of you would have been unable to purchase yearbooks. It was possible to sell the 1953 TIGER at approximately one-half of the cost of the publishing because of the wonderful cooperation of our advertisers. They have been generous and considerate in purchasing ads. When you patronize them, mention their ads in the TIGER; give them your utmost support in every way that you can. TO EDWARDSVILLE ADVERTISERS: We wish to extend our sincere thanks to you for your cooperation and for the cordial reception you have given to our ad solicitors. This response has been greatly appreciated by us and we are confident that the students will show their appreciation by patronizing you. THE TIGER AD STAFF. Ninety-fiveTHOS. F.
