The Ninety-Fourth Anniversary Reunion On February ll, 1947, a reunion was held at the school to celebrate the ninety-fourth anniversary of the founding of the school. There were about four hundred present at this meeting. Our mailing list was very in- complete. and many who would have at- tended didn't learn about the meeting until it was over. The speakers on the program were representatives of the classes which graduated 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years ago. Among these were Sidney Corson 119375, Norman C. Parker fl927j, and Alfred Fleishman 619221. Vocal solos were given by Charles Burmeister and Ed Nolte, a dance number by John Berger, an accordion solo by Wenzel Eberhardt. Mr. Weir made one of his crisp, enjoyable speeches. We were also favorably impressed by the new principal, Mr. E. W. Alexander. Margaret Euerst 119411 was chairman of the program com- mitte. At this meeting Paul Mulcahy, whose prodigious efforts made it such a success, re- signed as president, and Charles Cirippi was voted in as his successor. Lucille McCann was re-elected secretary, and Robert Wellman was chosen treasurer. After the election, Cirippi pleaded that it was impossible for him to take the presidency because of his status as a busy G. I. college student. Miss McCann also insisted on re- signing as secretary since she is to be out of the city this summer. At a hurry-up emer- gency meeting the following agreed to take over for the rest of the year: Preslidenl ............,............, ...NORMAN PARKER, '27 319 N.

VEST DAVIS, '09 Central High School-JE. 7949 The Nlilce Walker Dinner Early during the winter, plans were under way to give a testimonial dinner to Central's most famous coach, Michael W. CMikeD Walker, who retired last September. A com- mittee consisting of Joseph E. Holland. Stratford Lee Morton, Sidney Maestre. Al- fred Eleishman, and James E. CJimmyj Con- zelman, was selected to set the date and make the arrangements. The Alumni Association officers gave their full cooperation, and the dinner was held at the Chase Hotel on March 27, 1947. It was a grand reunion attended by many of Central's famous old grads, who turned out in force to pay tribute to their Alma Mater and to their beloved coach and friend, Mike Walker. Many letters and tele- grams poured in from those who were unable to be present. Dozens of tributes were paid to Mike for his gentlemanly qualities and sportsmanship. He responded with a fine talk that displayed his characteristic modesty and sincerity. Talks were also made by Presi- dent Putney of the Board of Education, Supt. Hickey, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Ben H. Barr. Stratford Morton, Talty O'Connor, and Wil- lis Johnson of the Globe-Democrat. The chicken dinner was good, too. Mr. Walker's main suggestion was that Central should have a magnificent new building in which to cele- brate its 100th anniversary in 1953.

l.et's lVlake a Date Now For February 'l'l, 1948 Central will be 95 years old on February 11. 1948. and the officers are already making plans for a grand reunion on the ninety-fifth birthday of our Alma Mater. Since the school auditorium holds only 700 people, it will be necessary to hold this celebration in a place that will accommodate several thousand. One oflicer suggests that we hold it in the Conven- tion Hall of Kiel Auditorium and conduct it something like the so-called i'beer" con- certs that were given there a year or two ago. If anyone thinks he has a better idea, let him write a letter to the president or secretary, explaining his proposals. At any rate, put a big Red and Black circle on your calendar around the date February ll, 1948. Personal Alumni Notes One of our most enthusiastic alumni is Richard Harkness C1891 1. He was president of the Boys' Literary Society and recently brought to the school the Boys' Literary So- ciety Diploma of Theodore Koestli 118911, who presented it to the school. Mr. Hark- ness keeps in touch with many other "Boys of '91", including Admiral Leigh Palmer fnow in New York City1 and Dwight Kel- logg and Winfred Ernst Garrison. Another interesting item of school history disclosed the fact that on our diplomas as far back as 1875 the oflicial title of the school as printed on the diploma was THE ST. LOUIS CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL. Such a diploma, issued to Miss Jennie Riddle, who is still living, was brought to the school recently by her grand-nephew, Charles Mc- Aninch, a member of the senior class.
