The last game was with the Benton Harbor Col- lege On Thanksgiving. Great interest was taken in the game, as the college had the best team it had had for several years, and the result was in doubt, some thinking the high school would win and some the college. The teams were about evenly matched, and it was an exciting game throughout. Vielehr played the star game, the best he ever played. Every time he got through the line, and it was due to him that not an inch was gained through the cen- ter. The college played good ball, and although they were beaten they have a good team, better than any in this part of the stateewith the exception of the B. H. H. S. Sol ended the season of 1907. We did not win the pennant, but we did show that Benton Harbor still had a team of which any school might be proud, and we hope that the team of 1908-, with Ron Mont- fO'fCl as captain, will do their best to maintain the standard which the teams of ,06 and l07 have set. -R.

Football. The outlook at the beginning of the football sea- son this vear was not very encouraging, many of the old men having" graduated, and there being no coach to drill the team. At first it was thought the best plan would he to play independent ball, but later it was decided to enter the Interscholastic League, and work to keep up the reputation of the school-to win the pennant for another year. A large bunch was out for practice the hrst night, but they were so light it was seen that the team would have to be swift to off- set the lack of weight. During the early part of the season the team had had luck. The hrst two games were played on our home grounds with Niles and Grand Haven. loth were easily won, but the team showed a lack of coaching, and as both games were played in the rain the Orange Sox did not do as well as usual. The old players, Moats. Mon-tford and Hill lived up to their past records in carrying hack punts and making long runs, and Simon. with Hubbard to make holes for hint. went through many times for long gains. In the Grand Haven game Easton played a very good game. breaking up interference, making holes for the hacks. and getting down after punts. Bishop also played well. making long end runs. Then came a game with the second team, com- posed of the boys who will make the team next year. f L They were a great help, for through t1, got the practice it needed so badly. I; time that Howard Morrow, the best Harbor ever turned out, offered to m but as he was not familiar With the ck, back field, this was left to the old men great help to the team and it was due? that so many games were won.

F ootball Sisters. The organi7ation of the Foo-t Ball Sisters has ex- iste1l in the Benton Harbor High School for a number of years but ne1er until the year 1902 did it come into much 111111111i11ence. The intent of the organization is to assist in every 11 ay possible the maintenance of the energetic foot-ball spirit. This year the girls were greater in number than ever before. They needed no constitution nor any pledged vows to hold them to their purpose, only the posters for a coming foot- ball game. 211111 each girl felt that it was her duty to 1111 all in her power to help. The girls, however, chose their officers: Eva Pearl as yell-master, Nona 11 111ls1111 as secretary, and Louise Hogue as manager. Many nights of practice resulted in a well trained chorus and bunch of rooters, who made the 11ea11-l11' 1111111111s resound on the still autumn afternoon of a f1111t-l1all game. The girls were always to be found at the games 111 a bunch 1111 the east side of the grid- i111111. 111111 111th thei1 ha11111 faces and colors Hying t11e1'ce1tai1111'11e1e an inspi11inO1sigl.1t As some mem- l1e1 111 the team 11ashe11 11111111 the field for a touchdown he 11 '1s s111111e11 on 111' the thought that some one in that g'a1 1111111111 111 111 anoe and black was holding her 111e11th 211111 Oh so wishing, that he would reach the goal in safety.
