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

The last game was with the Benton Harbor Col-

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

But the only thing in which they are champions
Is in the line of hot air.
