CLA!! DF '31
If one should have happened by F. C. H. S. on an early morning in September,
1928, their attention would have been called to an unpromising group of youngsters
hanging around those school doors. We attempted dignity-but fell a little short,
acted childish in fact. In spite of appearances we didn't do so badly-electing
Berniece Brown, presidentg Tommy Jones, viceg Rosalind Barrett, secretary and
Miss Bennett and Mr. Lawler, class sponsors. We attracted no little attention
throughout the year.
Leaving that green stage far to the rear, we entered as sophs in 329. That
was a lively year and we claim a part in. making it so. Although being between
the "green" and Hwisei' stage, we plodderl along with our best foot forward.
For junior class officers we chose Tommy Jones, presidentg Carroll Glover,
viceg Christina Dixon, treasurerg and Mrs. Corley Tidwell and Mr. Hunsaker as
sponsors to hold us in check. Witli their able support we gave the customary play,
ours being K'Kempy,l' a howling success.
Now as upper-classmen we take our place as T judges on the bench. Mack
Stephenson holds the gavel and with Miss Stewart and Mr. McClintock backing
us, we can't fail to carry on and play the game.

The other day I got to wondering about what my class-mates would be doing
years from now when they were out in the world-on their own hook. A friend
of mine suggested that I go to a crystal-gazer. I thought the idea topping and
followed his suggestion.
The first thing he saw in that clear sphere of the future was our own Velma
Baker cooking supper over a hot stove and looking anxiously out of the kitchen
window for her husband. VVho? Prof. Thomas Jones, principal of F. C. H. S.
T hen he switched to an entirely different scene-Hollywood. Harold Cantrell
was doubling for Buddy Rogers. Albertine Lauderdale was among the baby
VVan1pus Stars of the year and was on her road to fame. By the way, her favorite
dressmaker was none other than Dorothy McCluskey. On a busy Hollywood
avenue, Charles McClintock was directing traffic. I laughed a little at this, but
the crystal-gazer accounted for his lowly position by relating a little story. Chuck
had worked hard after leaving school and had made a name for himself as the
leading beauty specialist of Shakerag. Unfortunately for him, he invested his
money in seemingly gilt-edged bonds, which were submitted to him by the cunning
swindler, Marion Graskewicz. He lost everything. VVhen his secretary, Berniece
Swofford, brought him the news he collapsed. His doctor, Eddie Good, was called.
Special nurses-say, they were Vivian XVilliams, Idell Partain, and Jessie Connell
were placed on duty. Little hope was given for his recovery. His life-long friend
and companion, Grant Mitchell, thought it best to send for his wife, Alma VVells,
who was at the time. studying voice culture at Paris. under Prof. Hollis Palmer.
She came in an aeroplane which was piloted by the world-famous aviator, Raymond
Pry. The patient's condition was so serious by the time of her arrival that she
immediately called a priest. He? Oh! It was John VYezalis. Two Nuns came
with him to offer consolation to Mrs. McClintock. They were Sister Laurine Iiu-
banks and Sister Berniece Hindman. Here is where the unbelievable part comes.
VVhile his night nurse, Idell Partain, was not attending to duty-in fact was carry-
ing on a flirtation with Chucks butler. Mike Belbas, the patient disappeared. VK'hen
found he was working as a traffic cop-as we said before-and suffering from a
complete lapse of memory. It was thought best by the brain specialist. Edward
Griffin, to leave him thus-so we found him as this in our crystal.
The next scene is New York! There we see gay Ziegfeld Follies-and on the
front row Irene Engram, Anna Drabish, and Lucille Brown. Frank Paternal and
Katie Karis were billed as "The Perfect Dancing Team"-having been discovered
and brought into the spotlight by Ziegfeld's assistant, Fred Clements. The prophet
then saw the interior of "The Green Door," an exclusive night club owned by John
Clark and operated by Oliver Bolen. He chuckled as he looked into the kitchen.
Oh! There was our own class president Mack Stephenson-chief cook. Rosalind
Barrett, Dorothy Faith and Jennie Lamb were working as dishwashers. I smiled
a little myself. VV'e then moved into the dining hall. James Guiney was decked
out as head waiter. The leader of the orchestra was our own Edwin Bostg his
drummist, Bland Crabtree, and his pianist, Guy Yattoni.
At the first table were seated Oran Mitchell, a wealthy patron, and his charm-
ing wife, the former Oradell Downes. At an adjoining table, the renowned gang-
ter, Lloyd Thompson, was sipping his cocktail and gazing boldly into the eyes of
Ola Chaniot, one of the clubls entertainers.
At the corner of. 42nd and Grand, VValter Syfert was playing his violin, and
Elizabeth Scott, his wife. held forth a rusty tin cup as she looked imploringly
into the eyes of all passers-by. One kind old gentleman, Harold Barger, noticing
their plight, bid his chauffeur, Alfred Atwood, to stop the car. He alighted and
with sympathy in his eyes dropped a shiny penny into the empty cup.
The Hawaiian Islands appeared in the glass. On the wharf, Bernice Brown,
Christina Dixon, Marguerite Clements, and Mary Drabish were Welcoming the
visitors with wreaths of flowers.
In Africa, Fern Spurrier and Dorothy Plumlee were starting for the interior
to take up their missionary work.
In sunny Italy, Sam lVhitf1eld pushed his fruit-laden cart through the streets
yelling his wares at the top of his voice. At the Vatican, Thelbert Nickelson ruled
as Pope. Ritchey Heffner was caretaker of the gardens in the Vatican. In the
famous vineyards outside the city of Rome, Mabel Stone, Francis Kirby. and
Velta Hammonds earned a meager living by picking grapes. Barbara Hindman
Was the overseer of this particular section.
At London, we found Bill Thurman making big plans to rebuild London
Russell Dost held sway as Lord Mayor of London. His wife, Ioan VVorthing-
ton. was the leading society matron. She was assisted by her able secretary, Jean
Elkins. Her dinners, prepared by Peggy Harrison, Gwen Stover, and Edna
McKee were famous throughout England. Esther VVilson once a leading prima
donna, had retired to her country estate.
Here-the crystal-gazer stopped and said the spirits forbade him to reveal
I might add that we the undersigned. are still suffering from the effects of

GUY YATTONI C'GUYA"j
XYhen blocking was in demand, and good blocking combined with A-l
interference, Guy Yattoni was up in front with the best he had. Guy played
his second and last year under Red Bird colors this season, Filling second duty
at the wing post. He had a mystic habit of camping under stray passes no
matter where they were, then it was a matter of twisting hips and writing
shoulders, brilliant pivoting and on to the goal. Yattoni goes by graduation.
one of the best in the end of the state.
EDDIE GOOD C'COOKUM"j
Captain F. B.
Eddie led the Red Birds into battle this campaign, in their hardest sched-
ule in several years. Captain Good filled the fullback post as a consistent
yardage gainer and was a man masked for his fine leadership. The forward
wall of any team was not too ixnpregnable for Cookum. For a brilliant record.
Good was made leader of Southern Illinois eleven, and was a member of one
of the mythical all State. He leaves F. C. H. S. as one of its greatest athletes.
MIKE BELBAS QUHI-Y"j
i Mike broke into the grid racket this season as a letter man. playing his
third year with the Varsity. Though he had the spirit of a lighting Red Bird
all season, Mikes ability was not discovered until late in the schedule. He
termed 'gsnaggingu passes as a specialty, and held to his conviction that
Usleepers win games." Few and short were the gains around his end for the
man carrying the ball usually took his brakes soon after starting and tound
Mike the cause of it all. He adds to the list of those who will leave F. C. H. S.
A asc A
FRANK PATERNEL C'QUACK"j
R. H. B.
"Quack" Paternel was one of the luminants of last year's lightweights
who ventured to the varsity this year. To make a long story short, "Quack"
proved to have the necessary Hhorse-sensev to run the Red llirds, and he
was placed on the first eleven, as half back, to act as "brains" of the team.
Peternel crossed the enemy time and again, but he filled up one of the pretty
red uniforms for only one season, since he graduates with the class of '3l.
Since his playing is of stellar character, his skill in the cardinal ranks will be
hard to equal.
HAROLD CANTRALL C'CANDY"j
You all know Cantrall. He's the offensive tackle who had a specialty of
reaching the kicked ball first and then hovering over it gently to keep others
away. But 'KCandyH had his moments of performance when he was not so
loving. and then he tackled as few others did. His conviction that "the
bigger they are the harder they fallf, has been carried to the point during
every engagement, and "Candy" finds a kick in watching them "bite the
dustf, Cantrall is a Senior this year and adds to the list of fine outgoing
JAMES MACE C'MAc1E"p
This is Iamesls nrst year of actual warfare on the squad. Coming to
the front as an end, fate intervened in early season, keeping him out of the
majority of the mid-season engagements. He was an unrelenting fighter on
the grid, and played his position with hard driving effort. James leaves his
Alma Mater this year. May success be his!
Page Eigh fy-foul'
DALE STARKS C'STARKIE',j
This year Dale was again a strong constituent of the Red Bird forward,
and put all effort to turn back any attempt to storm his post. Starkie has
displayed his skill at the game for his second year, after receiving an injury
to his shoulder last campaign. He was in the game with all determination,
giving all and taking all, but always coming out o11 top. He played the game
like a man, always the winning way. Graduation calls Dale to greater heights.
KENNETH SAWYER C'TWINS"j
Red landed a berth with this season's Red Birds as a new man. Kenneth
was a former athlete of the Pinckneyville charges and came to the Birds to
help win trophies. That he was successful is shown by his many friends,
and when Red finished the list of engagements he possessed all the earmarks
of the fine Red Bird spirit. Sawyer has another season to fight for Cardinal
BILL MULLINACK C'NEBBY"j
Four years ago Bill started out to make the Varsity, and this year he
did it. Quarterback was his favorite post. and he played the position with
all in the game. Bill had a specialty of diving into the air to give the enemy
the brakes and few could get past him. As a safety man he returned punts
like a veteran, smearing into the enemy for neat gains. XYheni a utility man,
he was their best, and kept up spirit on the side. Bill received a letter to
remind him of his efforts on the grid, and leaves his Alma Mater by grad-

CHARLES STANKUS C'SUG"j
"Sug" made his bow before the stands in the form of a quarter back
from the light weight ranks. A small fellow, but adapted to the tricks so well,
he played his post in a fine manner, but lack of weight caused this little

line. "Sug" is the smallest of the Birds, but he is mighty. He is a Soph
and has two more seasons to serve his school.
CHARLES MARGELLI C'CHINK"j
Captain-Elect H. B.
Margelli was the mainstay in all the Red Bird attacks and his brilliant
runs frequently brought the stands to their feet. "Chink" was one of the
season's outstanding half-backs, and for his efforts landed a berth on the
Mythical Southern Illinois team. He was in the game during every minute
of play and showed wonderful skill in both offense and defense. Next year
he will make his third appearance as a backlield ace and a candidate for all
State honors. VVith one more year to serve, as choice for captain for the
Red Birds, he will surely make it.
WILBUR JAMES C'RED"j
VVhen this fellow hits them they take the brakes in neat time and it's
tough sledding when Red is on the warpath. This young man made his
second debut in service of the team at the pivot post this season, and displayed
some brilliant centering, fighting through the schedule with as good a passing
average as any in the state His A-plus snapping ability and stellar defen-
sive work is hard to beat, and with two more seasons to perform, he is ex-
pected to become one of the mythical All-State elevens.

wing post, "Snookum" carried off letter honors with
the Birds this season. As one of their best utility men, Poole remained rather
nonchalant but a hard Hghter. His favorite resort was "sleepers," and he
played an interesting game. Never very serious, yet playing with all 1100?
Red Bird tight, Earl kept up with the schedule as a Reserve, and he is John-
son's best bid for the end position next campaign as a two letter man.

PAUL YATES C'PERCY"j
Paul landed a leading role with the regulars this season as a guard,
winning renown as being a fine player. Paul was usually found tangled
in the feet of the ball carrier and could read the enemy plays before they
were executed. Playing HHeads Up" football, Yates strutted his talent on
the line and we are proud to know that one more ear to s If C

HOW THEY DID IT
Modern advancement of athletic activities brought about a demand for
our local football grid to be equipped with a lighting system for night foot-
ball this season. just such procedure was carried on and a half dozen
sixty foot poles, bearing four lamps per pole, adorned the sides of the Held
for activities this campaign. and the Red Birds were ready for a scrappy
season with the old pig skin.
Over lO0 aspirants answered Coach Iohnson's call for players. Practice
immediately got under way and johnson, assisted by "Greasey" Lee, soon
had a Varsity squad, composed of thirty candidates, leaving the remainder
with Coach Ely as lightweight subjects.
0 Red Birds-johnson City 18
Strenuous practice of fundamentals and hard football prevailed during
the period before the first contest with Johnston City, but in spite of all
efforts to have a winning eleven, the Birds just couldn't Hy to victory and
on September 19, A.. D. tAfter Darkl the locals dropped the hrst non-
conference tilt to City, with the top heavy tally of lS-0. The VVilliamson
County lads played a fine brand of football and added to the fact that they
outweighed our Birds, this may be used as alibi as well as truth.
0 Red Birds-Centralia 26
Our second twilight game, September 26, on Centralia soil, ended with
the Marion County gridders taking the long end of a 26-O count while the
Cardinals couldn't seem to do more than lavish the defeat. During this
contest Adolphe Nicklevich, our quarterback. issued his way out of this
seasonys campaign when he was rendered 'Ahors do combat" with a broken

On the P. M. of October 3 the local aggregation staged a pleasant and
spectacular comeback, using the Elkville eleven as victims of attack. This
was the third evening battle and the Hashy Cardinal crew finished in pos-
session of high number of a 14-6 result. Captain Eaddie Good, leading the
Birdmen this campaign, accounted for the scoring, while Chink Margelli
completed two extra kicksg Cantrall and Sawyer, tackles, caused hard buck-
ing in the Elkville ranks, while jame's faultless centering paved the way

And on October ll the Harrisburg Bull Dogs entertained with the
Johnson men as guests. The party ended with a tale of 30-O. the hosts on
the losing end. This contest marked victory for the .local crew in their first
conference tilt, and upset the Purple and White machine of last year's
Coach johnson's charges uncorked a fierce attack right off the start and
had the enemy off their feet just so soon. The Birds chalked up their first

touchdown 1 minute, 3 seconds after the starting Whistle, and two others
followed in the first period. Yates's and Mace's Hne blocking helped the
Blacks, maneuver to victory.
6 Red Birds-Murphysboro 19
The Murphysboro Red Devils dropped in on us October 11 for our sec-
ond conference fracas and upset our winning streak, placing the
Birdmen on the losing end of a 19-6 result. The local squad exhibited a fine
brand of football with less penalties than the murphy lads, but failed to
rally when they came within winning one several times.
In the first period, the 'Devils scored after a fumble by our safety, and
then the Birds lost spirit. A strong offensive comeback in the third quarter
gave the cardinals and gray representatives their lone marker. Although
the local gridders were defeated, they left the Red Devils with several
wounded subjects to nurse.
19 Red Birds-Herrin 12
Our Cards turned the conference tables when they took the measure
of the Herrinites, Qctober 24, on foreign held, with a grand finale of 19-12.
Displaying the season's best football, Coach johnston's charges played con-
ference shocking football. The 'fheads up" exhibition proved too much for
the Wfilliamson gridders, and while Good and Margelli plunged the line and
whipped the end for long gains, UQuack" Peternel called plays and crossed
the enemy time after time. Tommy Turner filled in nicely at one of the
wing posts for his ,initial performance this campaign.
6 Red Birds-Arna-Jonesboro 13
Our boys invaded some dangerous territory on the first of November,
meeting the Anna-Jonesboro Wildcats. The Cats pawed the Red Birds
to a 13-6 finish, in spite of the local's several attempts at victory. Dame
hard luck went against the Birds, and added to the several errors made in
the backheld, the hard luck favored the hosts in a winning way. This non-
conference engagement found the local machine off form, and defeat helped
7 Red Birds-Marion 6
Playing in a drizzling rain on a muddy Held, in one of the hardest fought
engagements on the Red Bird schedule, the johnsonmen defeated Marion,
November 111, by narrow margin of a 7-6 score. The Armistice program
had been selected as Marion's Home-Coming, but the Birds settled all hopes
of Marion victory. Going scoreless until the closing minutes of the 4th
quarter, both teams showed the season's most brilliant football. Yattoni
passed to Margelli for the first score, then Margelli kicked the ball over the
bar for the extra point. Marion scored by a trial attack but failed on extra
point when Dale Starks held Davis, Marion back, one foot short of a 7-7 tie.

Turning a forecasted defeat into victory, the Red Birds encountered
the Carbondale squad in a home battle on November 14, by a pleasant Ver-
dict of 37-O. Passing and Usleepersl' seemed to be the favorite mainstay
of the Red Bird attack. "Quack' Paternel made himself a luminant when
he ran forty yards with an ,intercepted pass, while Margelli and Good did
The locals played such a brilliant game, outplaying their foe in every
department of the sport, that Coach Lee's second string was run in to taunt
26 Red Birds-Benton O
Three Little Worcls-
WE BEAT BENTON!
XVonderful fight, brilliant playing, and keen rivalry won the game and
won the season for beating Benton means a VICTORIOUS season. Those
scrappy Red Birds played forty-eight minutes of hard heads up football
and that was enough to beat Benton. Strategy kept Benton from making
an inch during parts of the game, while our Birds were placed in just the
right place to ,intercept the enemy passes. Field General Peternal found
himself in the way of the foe's aerial attack time and again, turning them
into an advantage and a pleasant Thanksgiving day in West Frankfort.
The Cardinal line has all the praise coming. They held Benton score-
less with only a yard to go, and that was doing wonders. Remarkable
concentration was the all important factor, and the Birds were up in front
with much more than Benton could present.
Margelli and Good scored for the locals and their brilliant runs held
the throng breathless.
F. C. H. S. congratulates and thanks the Red Birds and the coaching
personnel on their victory, especially Good, Peternel, Quarrles, Yattoni,
Kharis, Mace, Starks, Downen, Belbas, Mullinack, for their services on the
gridiron, for these boys will leave their school this year.

About thirty members filled the ranks of the lightweight army this
year. General VVayne lily was proclaimed head mentor over the yearlings
ELIYCI' his very successful coaching of the aggregation last campaign. The
lighter gridders adopted the name "VVild Catsu after their scrappy ap-
pearances against their several opponents and proved their mettle by win-
ning two of the five games played, losing two and holding their own in an
0-0 tie. Of the two games lost, the enemy found tough sledding and the
victory was attained by "breaks"
Virgil Downen, at the tackle post, proved a consistent and reliable asset
to his team, with his manner of smashing into the enemy plays, figuring
ahead of the opponent, but the one great opponent-Death-called Virgil
away from the games of life, on February 27, 1931, not long after he had
sprung into the limelight as a lightweight gridder. Virgil's saddle will be
hard to fill, and his team mates sincerely mourn his loss.
Six of this season's Varsity Reserves are lightweight products, Peternel
and Stankus taking berths on the first string. Albert Nerone has been
placed on the Benton eleven.
This year's schedule has brought to front still further and finer pros-
pects for future years. and Coach Ely promises to have some valuable ma-
terial ready for Varsity training next season.
We are looking forward to these boys to uphold the Red Bird colors.
They are the finest of the school, and will prove reliable to the Cardinal
cause. Their never dving spirit and determination will place them in the
depleted ranks of grid-iron heroes who have gone before.

Guy Yattoni, Captain, G.
Guy's hid for the first live last campaign led hi1n to captain of the
Red Birds this season, and to live up to expectations, Guya went into the
game with his team in flashing order. His work as forward cannot be over-
emphasized, for the boy was a dead eye with his shots, and sent the ball
through the loop on free throws with a 10011, record. His most outstanding
trait was his keen Hoor work. Graduation calls Guya on to greater heights.
Eddie Good, Guard
Eddie was not the star on Basketball that he was on the gridiron,
although he did perform some splendid work on the floor this season as one
of Johnston's Red Birds. Cookurn is another of the Cardinal crew that
will leave athletics in F. C. H. S. to the future stars, and he leaves his Alma
Mater as an all-round athlete.

into the Varsity eight this season with all his hght up. Marion made
his laid as a basketeer, and accomplished something. The boy did his "hey-
ing" while the lights shined and reaped success. His shots from any spot
on the floor made him one of the Birds most reliable and consistent players.
He leaves the game with a fine scoring average.
"Chuck" is little but mighty, and another of the Cardinal and Grey
aggregation that meant business, and it was too bad for the opposing
guard if "Chuck', ever got set and fired. That little Bird went some place
when he went into the fracas and did things. As one in the game, he con-
tributed his share toward the Bed Bird aim, and always went into the tilt
to make a name for himself. F. C. H. S. and the fans will not soon forget
Although Oran did lack a little experience as a Red Bird, he came
up with this seasonis Birds to show the Iohnstonites a few tricks at annual
game. Gran filled up the baskets in neat time, and his aim was never failing.
His determination and willing efforts were factors in putting Gran on the
1931 list of the Cardinals best players. Mitchell served his season for his
colors with splendid effort, and goes on by graduation to higher fields.

liarl's keen cleverness with the horsehide and his ability to put it
through the loop drew favorable comment. He strutted his wares this
campaign as one of Mentor Iohnston's best utility men, and proved his
mettle as a basketeer. With two more schedules to serve, the boy should
make his team more proud of him.
Afs one of F. C. H. S.'s most outstanding and all-around athletes,
"Chink" went into the anal game with determination and came out in tri-
umph. Fast and splendid floor work marked Charlie's success, and with
another season to serve, we shall see him go over the top.
Another Birdman that is dangerous on the floor when he gets gone
for a basket-"FOrd,' Jordan. His ever lighting determination, combined
with his efforts, made bert one of Coach -lohnston's best utility men.
'iFord" captained the second five when they were on the Hoor, and his lead-
ership was one of his niany favorable assets. Bert's playing pleased the
fans and with another year for him to perform as a Red Eird he will surely
make all fans and team more proud of him.

Bost went into basketball limelight and gave the fans something to
talk about. llis perfect poise, and deadly aim sent the Cards bounding
ahead in many engagements, and he always came out ahead. His splendid
scoring average, less fouls against him, his sportsmanlike playing, and cool,
pleasant perseverance made liost an athlete F. C. H. S. will not soon forget.
He leaves his Alma Mater-one of its finest athletics.
"Paduke" came from Carterville as one of their basketeers but failed
to break into Red Bird athletics until late in the season. However, he
came back strong and after two games the boy was known by everyone.
"Paduke's" tiue and square hitting practice. his clean sportsmanlike man-
ner of playing the game, his "fight" while on the floor, his willingness and
set desire to win as a clean athlete. all go to make him one of F. C. H. Sfs
most renowned players. He will be back again next year to make a greater
name for his team as well as himself. '
This young man came from his post as a barber at Thompsonville to
try his luck with the town team. Earl did such stellar work on the floor
that he landed a berth on the Hrst string, but only after mid-season dicl he
yield to the stiff Competition given him. However. it was no trouble for
Earl to hll up a pair of baskets and he did on several occasions. The barber
goes by graduation, one of the school's cleanest cut men.

COACH JOHNSTON'S FIRST SQUAD BASKETBALL MEN
COACH LEE'S LIGHT WEIGHTS
A Ai -fy A
Our cage season began before the grid schedule was a finish, with
Harry McClintock coaching the pre-season aggregation. XYhen the pig-
skin was patched up December 1st, action started in the basketball camp
and the Varsity of '30-'31 was made known. Due to Coach McClintock,
the early players were in fine shape, but the gridders couldn't seem to get
away from the "football mindfl
17 Red Birds-Hurst Bush 27
Still football minded, Coach Johnston sent his charges in to tackle the
fast Hurst Bush quintet for a practice game, December 5, which resulted
in the close but losing score of 17 for the Red Birds and 27 per enemies.
8 Red Birds-Hurst Bush 26
Another practice game lost to the "Bushy" organization, December 6,
when the outsiders playing on their own floor, dished out a Z6-8 count in
their favor. But watch these BIRDS!
23 Red Birds-Valier 21
Playing two extra 3 minute periods, the locals quint turned down Valier
on December 12 for their first victory. The Birds played old time basket-
ball, with a fast passing and fast, brainy five on the Hoor.
13 Red Birds-Ziegler 15
Away from home, December 13, with Ziegler asihost. To favor the
day of the month, the Cards were satisfied with a count of 13 while Ziegler
chose 15. However, Coach johnston's men displayed some fancy goods and
will soon get going.
13 Red Birds-Valier 22
They love 13-but that will not win. So Yalier came back with a
fighting five on their home floor, to send us off with defeat. December 19
marked this date with the Birds in their old traces.
23 Red Birds-Pinckneyville 6
just in time to show Santa Claus they could play basketball, they took
the measure off the Pinckneyville five with ease, serving them the half
dozen of a 23-6 verdict.
21 Red Birds-F. C. H. S. Alumni 23
Unlike the home town Alumni of other years, the "boys of 'SOM came
to town and almost lost to our "modern" quintet. The '31 crew came back
with fast floor work and good basketball, but the Alumni reaped victory
with the old time shots while the "lads of now" disturbed the net one after
another with classy basketball, falling one counter short as the game

15 Red Birds-C'dale 26
Playing the first conference engagement on the home floor. January 2.
with the fast 'Dale Black and Vllhite live, the Birds lost to the invaders
in a game much unlike that of last year with C'dale. The Johnston crew
started the scoring and held the reins until the second half, when the enemy
broke into a steadily scoring comeback. Fouling on the part of the Car-
dinals gave the eleven points of victory to Cldale.
35 Red Birds-McLeansboro 16
The Cardinal and Gray men chalked up another non-conference vic-
tory when they visited the McLeansboro quintet for a 35-16 iinis, January
6. Fine ball predominated and the Birds held the lead until the finish.
Firing their guns in every way known, strategy and fast brain work marked
the easy wire.
15 Red Birds-Benton 18
But when the Ranger from Benton came down from their county seat
on the 9th, they had little trouble in turning down the Red Birds, although
the score stood 18-15 at the Hnish. The local live exhibited a flashy brand
of floor work, but when the Rangers tried at the Bird defense, our boys
fell short of protection. Even up until the final gun, baskets came dropping
around for the locals, who had a spring started, but too late.
13 Red Birds-Harrisburg 10
Someone told the writer never to believe in what a team has done.
l.etls donyt! Because after taking defeat from Benton the Johnston crew
carried the Cardinal and Gray to Harrisburg and tucked in the Saline
County hve with a 13-10 bed time story, on the 10th. for their first con-
ference victory. And what a story! In this game Ed Bost came through
with some fancy freak shots from center like the old-timers showed us in
those days and put the game on ice for the Birds.
23 Red Birds-McLeansboro 10
On January 13 the Cards again proved to the Green and NVhite of
McLeansboro who is who, when they drubbed the visitors by a 23JlO count.
In this game the locals came through with some "hot stuffu even though
they were up against a weak quintet. Bad passing was quite frequent, how-
ever, and in the third period the invaders tallied six of their shares.
11 Red Birds--Johnston City 23
Charges were reversed in this tilt. when the Cardinal and Gray machine
pitted their talent against that of last year's champs on January 17. The
Bird crew started the scoring and went up to 4-0 to leave the Williams.on
County lads in a haze at quarter time. But the guests tied the tally with
a pair of naturals 7-7 at half time, and although the Birds annexed four
more to tie the score at 11-11 at the end of the third stanza, Johnston City
had a larger quota and went off with their share of a 23-11 finale.

Marion came up in front to receive high honors of a 22-20 offering. Playing
record basketball the Birds fiuttered around the Marion County seaters in
all three quarters, and things looked like a win for the local club. How-
ever, Marion tallied seven points in the fourth, and stalled the game,
22 Red Birds-Carterville 30
After their second close defeat, the Birdmen were sent to the showers
with the small end of a 30-22 verdict. The 2-ith witnessed a very interesting
game, up until the final period, for the Cards held the reins, but lost their
own game when they tried to stall in the third with the score 17-13 favor-
ing the lied Birds. Carterville's Lions had to put up a stiff scrap, with
the Card five. and in the fourth the action started. Things happened so
fast the fans couldn't get the best beneht of the rough fight. and several
times the referee thought of making a break for his dressing room, which
he did at the finish.
Host made seven of the 22 for the town team, while Captain Yattoni
brought the fans to their feet with his brilliant one arm shots.
9 Red Birds-Herrin 18
january 30th the local cagers went into a tussle on the Herrin Floor.
to end the first-go-round of the '30-'31 campaign. This tilt brought the
Birds their sixth conference loss. when the hnal curtain closed on a 13-9
finis. The Cards mentor discovered a clean cut basketeer in the person
of Yernaed "Paduke" Allison. if he didn't see anything else. Allison was
high point man. with four of the local annexation, after making his initial
appearance on the Card's first string.
16 Red Birds-Carterville 25
To start the second dance on this year's card, the Birds dropped a home
game with Carterville, 25-16, on the last day of January, after leading the
up-county lads until the third. The Birds kept up the visitors with 4-5 at
the end of the first period, after Carterville accounted for a free throw. All
through the second stanza Graskewicz attempted freak shots that almost
drove the fans wild, but he missed, while Yattoni disturbed the net to turn
the count 8-7 to favor his team. The third read 19-1l1 with the Birdmen
losing the pace, and the finale found them still waning, to carry in the 16
of a 25-16 verdict.
19 Red Birds--Carbondale 38
On February 6, to start a new month of losses, the Birdmen dropped a
loosely played tilt to the Carbondale Black and White on the foreign floor.
Carbondale doubled the count and although the Cards did fine work at
times, they failed to rally and were smothered. Bost and Yattoni tallied
more than their share of the points allowed the Birds, while McClintock
and Allison came to the front to cop a few honors apiece.

VVhen the Birds clinched with Tabor's Ranger on the Red and XVhite
Hoor, the l3th, the locals kept thinking of the day as Friday and couldn't
mix in just the fashion they wanted to. However, the Rangers' renowned
forwards, Rhodes and Lawson, failed to show against the Birds who had
two representatives of their tribe in their tracks all the time, and with
the game favoring the Cards. the county seaters looked bad. Tradition
always takes care of the final count and the Johnstonites trailed with the
small end of a 20-16 tally.
25 Red Birds-Ziegler 15
XYell. the Birds annexed one, but it can't last. and this one happened
to be a nonconference victory too. The Purple Tornadoes from Ziegler
hcld the ball 111OSt of the game, but such things donlt make final scores every
time. Margelli filled up with a few baskets for the home team in the last
period and sealed the game.
22 Red Birds-Herrin 33
XVith Herrin perched as fifth place on the conference ladder, Coach
Johnston sent his crew in to battle on the home fioor, February 20, after a
recent drubbing from the invaders by an 18-9 finish. The Birds fell far
below their playing ability and let up in the last few minutes to receive
their beating. Our boys just had a hard time.
15 Red Birds-Johnston City 29
On the 21st the boys met the former state champs. and dropped their
eleventh conference encounter to let them in the standings as next to last
with one win and ten losses. The Van Meter men almost doubled the score
but the Birds held the lead until the third period, fell behind and then
spurted ahead only to tie the score and then drop behind. Withotit Blazine
and with Feduris on the ill'feeling list, Johnston City had hard sledding
even on their home floor.
11 Red Birds-Harrisburg 13
Meeting the Saline County Bull Dogs in the local gym on February 27,
the Cardinals lost all chance of pulling themselves out of the cellar when the
Harrisburg quint served almost a carbon copy of their first meet, with the
score reversed to favor the Dogs. i
18 Red Birds-Marion 31
The Red Birds carried the Cardinal and Gray colors to the Marion
Stadium. February 28. for the final meet of the season, and trailed in the
finish with a Sfl-18 count.

from the beginning band which was started last fall at the opening of the
new school year. This band was under the direction of Miss Sorg.
Now the band consists of about thirty-five players. This band is ex-

The orchestra is not a new thing at this school. Although the director,
Miss Sorg, and some new instruments are rather recent. The new instru-
ments are: 'Cello, three violas, string bass, and a tuba. Miss Sorg and the
Music Department together have put on a series of programs and in that
way have been able to pay for the instruments. The orchestra has been
helped greatly by these new instruments.
Miss Sorg is doing a wonderful work with the orchestra. She has built
it up until now it contains about sixty musicians. The orchestra, as it
stands now, needs only three or four more instruments to have what is
called complete instrumentation. The orchestra with this present instru-
mentation has been playing overtures written by the greatest composers
up to this time. Their repertoire is more extensive than ever before and is

task to pick out just four girls. In fact, it was too hard to do at that time
so she just made an octet instead of a quartet. The girls in the octet are:
First Sopranos: Christina Dixon, Connie VV'orthington.
Second Sopranos: Elaine Ivins and Maxine Burnett.
First Altos: Gene VVilliams, Dorothy Bowker.
Second Altos: Irene Parkhill and Italine McCollum.
Due to the fact that only a quartet may enter contest, four of these girls
were picked for the quartet They were: Connie Wforthington, Maxine
Burnett. Dorothy Bowker and Ttaline McCollum, These girls have declared
that they are going to heat the boys in winning high honors.

CAD AND BELL
'lllarth asks its price for what earth gives usg
For a cap and bells our lives we payg
Bubbles we win with a whole soul's tasking."
The Cap and Bell Club was organized in 1924, for the purpose of further-
ing the study of dramatics and producing material for the Intellectual Con-
test each spring. This year's work started off with a bang,-a social "get-
togetheru meeting was arranged to take in the fifty new members.
Since then the club has met regularly to study and produce plays. Two
very interesting plays have been given: "Veal Breadedu and "The House
in Laurel Lane."

Our club has caused a lot of questions to be asked, by students not taking
part in this new club. They all are wondering just what we mean by
US. 0. S." The letters mean to us, Society of Speech, and not Save Our
Souls,-but better-Study Or Sink!
Our club is striving to help its members and those the members are
affiliated with in bettering our and their speech.
The club holds its regular meetings on each Monday of the week. The
club meeting is a part of the regular class work. Each Monday speakers
of the class take part in various kinds of programs connected with the work.
Every six weeks period new officers are elected to carry on the olficial
duties. This gives each individual speaker a chance to hold office.

VVetamachick Camp Fire Group III was organized in November, 1925,
and at that time there were only ten niembersg but, under the fine guardian-
ship of Lillian Hess the group made a sound footing for the progress of the
last five years. There are now eighteen girls in the group, seven of which
are new members. Miss Mary Dollins is the sponsor of the group this year
and is a good friend and leader for the girls, having been a Camp Fire Girl
herself for several years.
The group has earned money for their expenses by selling candy and
ice cream at school and at the Basketball Tournament. They also had a very
successful Hfish pond" booth in the Hallowelen Mardi Gras. They are plan-
ning a camping trip this summer which will give them a very good oppor-
tunity for winning their honors and doing some earnest work in their group.

of a traveling salesman. his socially aspiring wife, and their two daughters.
Patsy. the younger daughter. is cowed by her mother. championed by her
father, and snubbed by her elder sister, Grace, whose nature is much like
her mother's. This trait causes Grace to jilt Tony Anderson, a real estate
man, and to marry liilly Caldwell, the seion of a wealthy family.
VVhen Patricia attempts to make up for her lack of beauty with her
witty sayings, the family thinks she is losing her mind. However, in win-
ning Tony by giving him his own medicine. she makes use of Tony's psychol-
ogy and her own clever brain.
Mary Louise Pharis is cast as the mother, Paul Vkvilson as father, lrene
Parkhill as Grace, Dorothy Cochran as Patricia, Truman Smith as Billy
Caldwell. and Clifford Boner as Tony Anderson. The part of Mr. O'Flaherty
