E NPN-:'f:1NE:'r u N1:u:f:1NE:-1' CLASS HISTORY 'SMT HIP Ahoy!" called Captain LaMar Stoops, of the Class of 1925. Xml ! "Everybody to your post and all aboard!" The gang plank was lifted and we set- sail on the sea of "High School Career" from "Grades Harbor." 'Twas in September, 1921. At the beginning of our journey there were nearly eighty passengers on board, besides our instructors and advisorsg but as we went farther out to sea, some becalme disheartened, while others lost courage in their effort to withstand the effects of rough seas. These were taken back on another ship going to shore. It is the custom of every crew which sails this sea to select a motto and colors. The latter instills within each loyal voyager a feeling of pa- triotism for his crew. We chose purple and white, significant of strength and purity. Our motto "The higher we rise, the broader our view" has served as a silent guide to our inner selves and has been a challenge to sail on, and on, and on! From the very first, every member of the crew "put his shoulder to the wheel." We were in the first rank of all activities and in many in- stances brought back honors. Every year except one we have held the highest place in scholarship, among the other ships at sea. We all realize that if there is no social life on board a ship the crew will be liable to "scurvy," but such a disease never disturbed our crew. Each one has always tried to "brighten his comer" and cheer the other sailors on board. The second year at sea was a very interesting one. By that time almost everybody on board was accustomed to the weather and to the nature of sea life. Another captain, Sailor Firm Pippen, was chosen to pilot the ship. Some of the crew staged the play "A Kentucky Belle." Everyone was surprised at the wonderful dramatic ability displayed by our fellow mates. Large returns were the result of their efforts. Several times during the year we had storms but no one was seriously injured. As! to the third year, we were happy at having covered many leagues and that our journey was half complete. We re-elected Firm Pippen captain- There were several more sailors taken on board from other ships. We sponsored the movie "To Have and to Hold," and like all our predecessors we gave a banquet to the Seniors and Faculty, which was one of the pleasant events that we shall never forget. And now we have come to the last of our journey, with Sailor George Fu u rl cr n Pepple as captain. Our Annual Staff has been chosen with Sailor Edith Knox as Editor-in-Chief. Just a few more leagues to sail until we sight land. Sea gulls are now flying near our ship. All the sailors are trying to put forth their best efforts during this last year. We know it takes a lot of hard Work to get everything ready to go into the port of "'Graduation" which is along the coast of "Training" near the country of "College Days." "Ship Ahoy!" calls out Capt. George, "Land is in sight! Everyone to his place l" Every sailor knows what that means and scrambles to do his bidding. But we realize that we are soon to leave that dear old ship of "Class 1925," to board a ship much larger. We are thankful for a safe journey and to the other classes who succeed us we wish "bon voyage." -MARJORIE PRICE tix DW - Fifteen ' -"- Y ---v mi- -- Y Nl:-xFDl:-lNE:'r MARJORIE PRICE-Her air, her manner, all who saw admired GEORGE PEPPLE-One of our rising business men.

Twenty-,four N1-:u:r:iNE:T SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY " 5 T was a glorious morning in May when all the wolld was new While I idly q . . . . D . . sat on the soft green turf a gentle breeze fanned the blossoming trees about gay . .. me I was thinking how soon those blossoms would fall when a feeling o sadness came over me as I thought how the youth would also depart from my class- mates when they at last begin life's toil. I sincerely wished that some magic power would picture these friends to me as they would appear in the future. As I reluctantly rose to go I observed, behind a mossy tree trunk, two little eyes intently fixed on meg and while I gazed in amazement at a nimble form approaching, a wee voice softly said, "You have only to make known your desire and I will fulfill it." "Little Elf Magic!" I exclaimed. "Yes, I know you believe in fairies was the the quick reply and that is just why I am here." Now let me fasten this charm about your neck and you will immediately be in the Land of the Future." As his tiny fingers clasped the charm, I was taken in the twinkling of an eye to that much wished-for place. I was in the city of The Hague and noticed coming towards me a man with a light, brisk step whom I recognized instantly. "LaMar, LaMar Wehrly!" I cried. However, he did not seem to hear me so I followed close behind him. He entered the World Court and was lost to my view. That night I read these words in a Holland newspaper, "The prize for the best peace problem ever solved has been awarded to Amerciafs most notable orator, Mr. LaMar Wehrly." As magic works miracles I found myself in a moments time in a mountainous country. I slowly walked toward a scented garden of iiowers and spied in the midst of it a middle aged woman. As I approached she rose to greet meg then I was once more in the embrace of my old classmate Mable Strauss. During a conversation she informed me that she was Mrs. Walter Ulery, that her husband with his friends Roy Miller and Edgar Miller was in the mountains for the purpose of studying the composition of different rocks. I greatly regretted that I could not await their return for Elf Magic was calling me to come. In an African village a solitary woman stepped forth from a small Mission Home to walk with a faltering step to the sandy beach. After breathing a short prayer she extended her hands westward and longingly cried, "America, America, land of op- portunity and joy! Oh, that I could rest my feet upon your soil once more!" Suddenly a painful cry was wafted to her on the breeze. As the little Elf beckoned, I caught the last strains of a song she was singing to a poor African woman. "Salvation, oh, Salvation," came softly to me and although my eyes overflowed with tears, a great happiness filled my heart when I thought how our dear Mable Frederick had sacri- ficed her talent as a vocal soloist in the world and was unselfishly using it to win the poor blacks to Christ. The Elf and I boarded a ship together and the voice of the captain called out "Ship Ahoy!" I knew from whose throat those words issued, for back in old N. H. S. a boy used to shout in that same way. The man was none other than Lowell Sheets. I-Ie informed me that he had four more passengers in whom I would be interested. George Pepple-how he had changed but with alluring Katy smiling at him in her girlish way he glided across the fioor swifter than he had in his school days. The other couple was Mr. and Mrs. Holderman, formerly Katy Lantz and Herb. I consented to spend the evening with them, but just as I was enjoying myself immensely the magic power snatched me away. Twenty-f ve PII:-ll:9F:llNIEI'l" "We will visit merry England," said the little fellow on my shoulder. Thus We entered a stately manor. A handsome man was seated dreamily before a fireplace. Close beside him was a woman playing her violin. "Elizabeth Inks of Nappanee," said the magic sprite. As Fred placed his hand on his wii'e's shoulder and drew her to him, a voice whispered in my ear, "We cannot disturb this scene, come let us travel on." "Enter this church and sit in the first pew to your right, commanded Elf Magic. I obeyed the command and almost collapsed when I saw who the man was in the pulpit. Roy Weaver was honestly addressing an enormous crowd of church members. My fairy companion chuckled loudly to himself when he knew what a surprise he had given me. ' In sunny Italia, I saw Mary and Kenneth busily occupied in writing up the ma- terial they had collected in ancient Rome. They were both so deeply interested in their work that my fairy tale friend begged me not to interrupt them. As we entered the city of Paris the mimic on my shoulder directed me into an auditorium crowded with people. I had not waited long before Martha Hossler came forth to hold the audience spellbound by her favorite selection, "Just David." Another moment and I was enjoying myself among a large number of little tots. When the matrons of an Orphans' asylum came to join the children they only gasp in wonder at finding an old member of class '25. Doris Pippenger, Edna Yoder and Alma Stouder were just the right type of women for the work they had chosen. We arrived in New York and while I was viewing th sky-Scrapers I felt a warm grasp upon my arm. "Ione!" I gasped. For some time we talked and laughed just as if we were girls again. That afternoon Ione took me up a flight of stairs, threw open a door and there I met two expert designers who answered to the names of Madame Housouer and Madame Weaver. They were overjoyed at seeing me and just before our departure Edna referred to Ione as Mrs. Pippen. I turned my gaze upon her and she still was guilty of that scarlet school girl blush. "Yes," she confessed. "I am honestly the wife of the wealthy Radio Man." That evening I attended a New York Opera and while listening attentively my ear detected the notes of a song I had often heard little Thelma Abell sing back in Nappanee, Indiana. Her voice had developed a great deal and although she had changed in every way I was convinced by that one little song that the Opera Queen was our own Thelma. "We will remain here a few moments," said Mr. Elf as we neared an old fashion- ed Indiana farm house. A black-haired woman and her husband came to welcome us. Frieda smiled in her usual way while Victor proudly boasted of his four stalwart boys. When I inquired about the friends I had not seen they said John Bock and Walter Haney were two old bachelors dwelling on an adjoining farm. Myrtle Neff and her husband had departed from Nappanee and were raising cattle in Argentina. Mar- jorie Price and Marjorie Yoder were both instructors in Ashland College. Edith Knox was studying astronomy in some foreign country. Myrtle Roose had gone to Hollywood and was now a great movie star. Eloise Ganger had married a wealthy merchant. As Victor opened his mouth to further inform me I was hastened by the charms of the fairies to a valley in the Ozarks. On the mountain side a terrific exp1o-- sion occurred as one of Chemist Stoops' experiments had proven successful. I raised my eyes expecting to see half the mountain rolled away. But no, I was back once more in an old Indiana woods. It was yet May and the earth was still rejoicing. Best of all I heard the youthful voices of my classmates not far away.

A Day Without Something Done Class Colors, Purple and Gold. Is Like a Battle Never Won Th iffy-sz Pl F'-l I:F:-1 IN! E 'T' SISTER ALICE'S LETTERS ARY Jane was e good girl at peers, butl just like other girls, she . . . . ' . , Klint l was a little mischievous at times She was ten years old and had a big sister Alice, who had Just arrived atthe age of 'sweet sixteen." Now Alice professed to -be very boy-shy, but in secret she was corresponding with, a boy whom she had met at her aunt's summer home. They had been quite intimate and since she returned, it seemed to be get- -ting very serious judging 'bythe letters she received. Alice was going out one afternoon, and Mary Jane didn't know what to do. After looking at some magazines, she went upstairs- As she was passing Alice's room an idea struck her. She would get even with Alice for taking one of her dolls' ribbons for a tie. Looking in the: dresser drawer she spied a, package of letters tied with a blue ribbon. She took these and quickly ran to her own room to read them. After she had read all of them, she memorized one to which she had taken a special fancy. She was just replacing the letters when Alice was heard coming upstairs. Mary Jane quickly made for the window seat. Alice entered the room and asked suspiciously, "'What are you doing in my room? I'l1 bet you were up to some joke." "Oh, I was just day dreaming, it is so nice and sunny here," replied Mary Jane. "You know I never -pl-ay any tricks on you." "Well, if that's all you are doing, I'm surprised. You are not often so quiet. I'm ready now, let's go down to supper." The next day Alice was giving a. party. Mary Jane had played in the nursery all forenooan and was taking a nap when the girls arrived. Upon awakening she took one of her dolls and proceeded down stairs to the sit-ting room and there began. to play by herself. The girls were dis- cussing different topics when they became intent listeners to Mary Jane's serious conversation: Mary Jane tpretending her doll could talkj "Now listen, Jim, you play you are Alice's fellow Jack, and I'll play I'm Alice. First you must write me a letter." She then began to recite the mem- orized letter of Alice's: "My Dear Beloved Alice: My heart throbs at the thought of your dear name. Hours seem like days, days seem like weeks-, but there is one thought which spurs me on, and that is the thought of being with you. There is a question IA have to ask you, dear heart, Ah, my heart thrills at the very thought, Sweetheart- Is it not wonderful to be in love? "Yours forever and a day, "JACK" A roar of laughter greeted this, for Alice had just declared she hated boys. This made her very angry and she thought Mary Jane had spoiled everything, but the party seemed to be a wonderful success. Mary Jane's penalty was spending one week without dessert for din- ner, so she secretly vowed to read no more love letters unless they were her very own. -HELEN YODER, '27.

THE LAST LEAF An old man was sitting in a chair by the fireside, smoking a corn-cob pipe. He was a man of about seventy, always alone and never seen talk- ing with anybody. He was the only son and had never married- He referred to his ancestors and family as a tree, he was the last leaf and still waiting to die. -MARGARET MULLETI' THE LAST LEAF When I. was. cleaning in the attic, my eye chanced to fall on the title of what seemed to be an interesting story in a tattered and torn maga- zine. I sat d-own and read until I was abruptly stopped at a very exciting place for the last leaf of the story was gone, not to be found it seemed. A week later my small cousin came to me with a magazine in her hand and asked me if she might cut the picture from it. It was the last leaf of my story. ' -GLADYS M. HEPLER A SPIDER One rainy day I happened to seek shelter in an old log hut that had been deserted long ago. I had just sat down when on looking up, my eyes chanced to see a spider. It was large and mostly black with a trim- ming of white which made it very beautiful. This spider was busily en- gaged in weaving a web which was to be used as its home and a trap for insects- Although the threads had been broken many times it did not give up until the web was finished. From the spider I have learned that failures and discouragements do not spell defeat but are paths to greater and more lasting success. B. ELLSWORTH ROOD THE FLAG ON THE WALL The fiag in our room is a great help to us. Its appearance seems to not only beautify but add cheerfulness to the room. Its stripes are the paths we have to walk in life and its stars with their bright beams are the lights by which we see to walk these paths. Though often we have trials in our school life, the Old Flag looks from the wall and seems to say, "Stick to it, folks, stick to it." BERNARD BEGHTEL, '28 Forty-two f -2' 0 , . . -Y -,q,-. ,, 4 .

Here was a truck laden with Christmas trees-beautiful trees that would soon be laden with pretty presents for happy little boys and girls. Across the street a portly gen- tleman walked cautiously along on the icy sidewalk carrying beneath his arm a brightly painted rocking-horse. Near him two merry little girls, accompanied by their nurse, were carrying numerous Christmas pack- ages in two bri-ght red baskets. Bobby was interrupted in his reverie by the voice of Miss Smith, the matron, who said, 'fBobby, I wish you would please go downtown to Mr. Williams, the Engraver, and deliver this package." Bobby was soon skipping along in the busy street so pleased to think that Miss Smith allowed him to venture downtown and that, too, in the Christmas seasong for the gay window displays afforded Bobby no end of pleasure. He liked to gaze at the many toys and beautiful gifts and imagine how happy he would be if he were the proud possessor of some of these lovely gifts. At length Bobby arrived at the shopand delivered the package to Mr. Williams. The manager handed him a' ream of Orphanage stationery with its bold black letter head engraved upon it. Bobby started back, stopping here and there to gaze at the beauti- ful displays in the shop-windows. He saw a red drum that seemingly was made just for him, and a fine electric train with a tunnel and a bridge which fairly shouted for boys to come into, the store and buy it and then take it along home with them to while away the hours in glorious fun. But Bobby thought of Miss Smith and the Orphanage home and he trudged on toward that home. He knew that Christmas in the Orphan- age would not be an elaborate affair, it would be candy and oranges and perhaps a castoff toy frcm some other more fortunate child. Oh! how Bobby longed for a home and a Christmas tree, a daddy to romp with, a mother to caress him and tell him bedtime stories. Bu-t, alas, unfortunate child, he could boast of no home. As Bobby was crossing a crowded street, frisky North Wind scur- ried around the corner and deftly whisked two or three sheets of the stationery from his hand. Bobby plunged after them and directly in the path of an approaching auto. He was unaware of the wheels of a sedan bearing down upon him. There was a -grinding screech of brakes and suddenly-crunch-thud-something hard and cold bumped Bobby's head and he lost all consciousness. ' In a spacious library a sweet-faced lady of about thirty-five years is listening intently to what her husband is saying in the conversation over the telephone. "Yes, Miss Smith," he is saying, "I knew the police had notified you. Well, he is getting along fine. The only thing the matter with him is his broken arm. You see he dodged right in front of my car. Well, I'm mighty glad it isn't worse. And Miss Smith, Mrs. Madison and I will be over this evening to fill out adoption papers for Bobby. We've always wanted a boy and I think he is all we can hope for. Yes'm, all right. Goodbye." 4 - Forty-m 'Nil-':-lF3l-:IINIET "I 'believe we can make the little 'tyke' happy, don't you Margaret?" says Mr. Madison turning to his wife. "Oh! yes, we can, I'm sure, for we'll do everything we know how to do." Upstairs in a snowy white bed Bobby is partaking of all the deli- cacies that money can buy-jello, cake, candy and ice-cream. One arm is in a sling, while the other hand strokes a shaggy St. Bernard dog at his bedside. A sweet-faced nurse is telling Bobby of the wondrous times he can have when his arm is well and strong. .Then he can go sliding on his new red sled. No! Bobby was not dreaming-he is not a homeless, little waif any moreg he is the adopted son of the wealthy Mr.. and Mrs. John Madison. -DoR1s PIPPENGER, '25 PEP vs. BEAUTY "Ye-ah! When Paderewski can play like Zez Confrey I'll be willing to listen to him." What a shock to the mother of the young intellectual from whose lips 'came this irrelevant remark! Yet this attitude is not at all uncommon and I cannot help wondering why it is. Can it be that the lilting tune and irresistible rhythm of modern "jazz" have gone -sd far as to mar our taste for the beautiful and intricate? When you've just returned home from another day of endless at- tdrnpts to amass knowledge and the old brain seems fagged, just turn on the "Vic" and let the uplifting strains of "Too Tired T'Feed the Fishes" pour- forth- It's so easy to listen to, that pep comes back in leaps and bounds. There is no use to listen carefully for the theme or motive, for it's only "Too Tired." ' I have often marveled at the effect different types of music have on the hearer. After an artist has struggled with a composition, finally mastering it and playing it before an assembled audience, some applaud because they appreciate it, others because they wish they could, and still others because it is the thing to do. But let him strike up a "jazz" tune and see the effect. Members of the younger set seem to have a de- cided tendency toward alliances with St. Vitus and even the older ones cannot help grinning. It's such a relief to listen to something which takes its own course and which does not require one to strive to attain the seemingly unattainable. But it is deplorable if we cannot listen attentively and appreciatively to that which requires the delicate fineness of the artist. If he is not hu- morous or "jazzy" we try to find something to ridicule so that our interest may not lag. j I do not say that "Too Tired" and the rest of them do not have their Fifty lNlF:lF-'DI-:llSlE'I" place, for they do and quite a large one at that, but wouldn't we be just a little better if, once in a while, we would seek that riper, sweeter fruit, though more difficult to obtain, which satisfies the soul's thirst for beauty. Q -KATHARINE RICKERT, '25 CHRISTMAS "Raining on Christmas day!" exclaimed Geniveve, as she watched the rain slowly but steadily beating against the window pane. "This is horrid. It spoils our ride, too, Ted." Geniveve, Baker and hen brother, Theodore, lived in the city, and the long sleigh ride to grandmother's house was eagerly anticipated. "And this spoils our skating, too," said Geniveve, gloomily. "Let's take our skates along," suggested Ted. "Say, Gen, if this rain freezes on the pond, it'll be scrumptious." "Here comes Grandpa now," said Geniveve. "In the old ilivver, sure enough," said Ted. MI think I'll walk. He lets that bus follow its own inclinations too much." "Merry Christmas, Grampa!" greeted both children. "Mother and father will soon be here. They went to Sunday School." "You say it's a little cool?" asked: Grandfather. "No, mother and dad will soon be back from Sunday School," said Ted. "Oh, yes. Well you chickens come right with me then," and Grand- father, not waiting to hear any remonstrances, put them in the back seat and sped away. "Oooo! Ted, he's goin' too fast! Stop him," whispered Geniveve. "Hey, Grampa, why the hurry?" asked Ted. "You say you're in a fury?" "No, no. I said-" "Oooo! Grampa," screamed Geniveve. "You're turning out too far, oh, you'll upset!" Geniveve jumped, and broke through the thin ice into the ditch be- low. She screamed for help. "Save me, oh, Ted, Grampa!" But no one was in sight. She alone was iloundering in the black, cold waters. She screamed with fright and called for help, as she felt herself sinking. "Geniveve, what on earth is the trouble ?" She awoke with a start. "Oh, mother, was I dreaming ?" she looked out of the window. The streets were covered with a smooth, white blanket of snowg a dark object was swiftly coming down the street and sleigh bells were ringing mer- Fifty-one NFQF-er:iNi:T rily. Suddenly Geniveve remembered that it was Christmas day and grandfather was really coming to get them in the sleigh. -MABLE STRAUSS, '25 . . r....., MEMORIES HE night was exceedingly beautiful, the stars shone with a radi- ' V ant splendor, and a full moon sent down her silvery rays from the high heavens. They fell upon the hard crusted snow drifts, upon the laden boughs, upon the glassy ice, and into the homes of the inhabitants of the village. The whole earth was clad in a snowy white mantle decked with glistening diamonds. All was quiet in the village, but from a dis- tant hillside came a faint sound of childish mirth. Far away some bells were softly chiming and they seemed to say, "Peace, peace, peace." Every- where there was peace. This was a night for memories. Seated in an easy chair, beside an open fireplace, in a stately old- fashioned mansion, was an aged man. His hair was very white and thick curls clustered around his fair, peaceful lbrow. His head was bent slightly forward. He was silently thinking and dreaming of the days that were past. When his sensitive ear detected the sound of childish laughter, he slowly raised his head and smiled, memories rushed into his mindg his eyes glowed with a radiant lustre, and then filled with tears while the head bent lower than before. He was living in a world of fancies and dreams. Before him stood his mother as he first remem-bered her. He was a little child once more. The figure before him gently folded its armsi about a fretful son. A sweet voice crooned and sang lullabys to him until quietly resting. A little boy was softly laid' in his trundle bed as the fond mother tenderly kissed him and asked the Kind Heavenly Father to keep him safely through the night- Another vision flashed before the serene old personage. A little hand was placed in his own. A childish voice was whispering a new secret to him. A little girl's curly head rested upon her big 1brother's shoulder and her shining eyes were eagerly imploring hilm to take her riding on his strong back. As he held her close to his heart she vanished and another memory came swiftly toward him. This was the most precious. A beauti- ful slender maiden brought him an armful of roses. He carefully arranged them in a vase and then followed her as she lightly tripped into a sunny garden of flowers. He saw her head droop upon the lover's breast as she tremulously answered "yes" to the words of his proposal. This was the most wonderful moment of his life. Tears fell very thick and fast when he was compelled to give up this memory too. He sadly and slowly shook 'ill N Fifty-two Nl:iFDl:-INET his head and held out his arms toward the retreating figure- She was too far away, however, and he was now too tired to follow her. For a few moments the head was again raised5 and the old man 'gave a care-free laugh- When he discovered that he had only been, dreaming, he bent for- ward once more. His eyes rested upon a creeping babe. By his side sat a proud young mother quietly sewing. The baby crept up to its father's huge leg, clutched' it with tiny fingers, and for the 'first time stood on its feet. The companion by his side joyfully laughed and stroked her hus- band's arm with her now care-worn little hand. Would he have to give up these treasures too? Ah, yes they only remained a short while. Was there yet some Imemories to visit him? He waited, a door was suddenly .thrust open and in rushed a young man. There was a healthful glow on his face. Dad received a hard slap on the back, and listened attentively as his son told of his first success in business. He grasped the broad, strong hand, and chuckled to himself as he did so. He saw the boy seek- ing for his mother that he might tell her the news. As he passed through the door into an adjoiningl room. to search for her, his father loudly called to him. However, this dream had also flown. His son could not hear his call. He was all alone. The fire had burned low, the old man slowly rose to his feet and tottered toward the window. He gently drew aside the curtain and peered out upon the moonlit night. He sighed deeply and then a smile as peaceful as the night itself, illumined his face- The moon shone upon his white hair and ,bathed him in a silvery light. He raised his eyes toward the glittering stars but his soul .saw something loeyond them. He thanked God with his arms outstretched for the beautiful memories that had come to him. Then with a faltering, tearful voice he sang: "It is often the past that we love most at last, although it comes back through tears. The pleasures of now, they are sweeter somehow, when seen through the glass of years." --NETTIE HERSHBERGER, '25 SENIORS HAT grand old word, "Senior,', is as welcome to us as the flowers in June. For years we have toiled and labored for this title. There have come into our experiences. inevitable crises which seemed im- possible to overcomeg but with that ever significant word before us, we grit our teeth, clench our fists, and place our best foot forward to strive to overcome all difiiculties. In high schools and colleges all over the land, Seniors have the upper hand and sway it with a majestic aloofness, which other classmen are not permitted. lf any special privileges are given they are always di- Fifty-three ilNlFilF:F-INEZTS rected to the upper "four hundred," and Seniors truly appreciate them, also the highest standards of school life are set by the Seniors, and may we not call ourselves the "Polished Pebbles" ofi high school society? To us the word is a significance of completion and an anticipation of the day when we shall finish our work here and pass on to higher ed- ucation- But lo! at times those select are brought to earth by little hints and warnings, from our beloved elders, of our evils and misdoings. It is as if the foundations were removed from beneath us! But these in- cidents spur us on and we never lose heart. However, the fact is brought to our minds that those who go on in hope of receiving more "light" will soon be adorned by that significant color of green! Ah! yes, we realize that, but with the vigor of youth, the indwelling of self-reliance and the spirit of defmocracy, which is our her- itage, we march on toward the road of fame, Seniors! -MARJORJE PRICE, '25 HONESTY and DISHONESTY if M ONESTY is a very valuable asset in all human relations. We K W J must be honest with ourselves, with our neighbors and with God. Society is based upon honesty. Our money and checks depend upon the honesty of nations and banks, and no business success is possible until the public is confident in the merchant's honesty. Among the many things which Abraham Lincoln did, one was clerk- ing in a store. Soon he set up a store of his own. He was not success- ful, :but through it all, Lincoln never dide 84 mean or dishonest thing. The story is told of Lincoln that one day he gave a woman the wrong change, cheating her out of a few cents- That night he walked several miles through the rain tol return the change he owed her. He could be so com- pletely trusted to do the right that he was called "Honest Abe." Would we do the same thing or would we say to ourselves, "They didn't notice it so what's the difference," or "I'll wait until they come in the next time," and then forget about it? We can also be dishonest in our talking as well as in our deeds if we choose to be. Some people perhaps start to be dishonest in their talking to avoid accusations or to suit the occasion or predicament in which they are at that time. Gradually it becomes a habit before they realize it and then they lose the power to face the fact truthfully and honestly. Dishonest people will be known as.Simons in the world and their characters will be lowered notch by notch as their falsehood becomes Fifty-four 'ISI I-:iF-DF-'f-I ISTEILI' it it known. No one gains in the end by being dishonest in deeds or in words and no one will think more of them. Moreover if they are known as deceitful persons, no matter if they speak the truth, they will always be doubted and mistrusted. The world looks up to and reveres the truth- ful and honest person. Then there is another type of dishonesty, namely, the acting of a lie. Some people live a lie by thinking one thing and then acting the reverse, perhaps because of public opinion. The little things are the ones to be watched the closest for if we are honest in little things we will be honest in all things. -:EDNA HOUS-OUER, '25 MISJUDGMENT and MISUNDERSTANDING Misunderstanding which goes hand in hand with misjudgment is probably one of the wonst things on earth. It keeps many a, young man or woman from going forward under the eyes of the world. To be mis- judged is to be misunderstood, or vise versa. How can one fairly judge another Whom he does not understand? Too many people pour forth their opinion of a person whom they do not know well. This usually causes a great deal of harm. Why? Simply because they are judging a person too hastily. These opinions may impress other people, causing a fal-se reputation to be established. Before we pass our verdict on a per- son, we should understand the conditions under which he is surrounded. Actions and appearances are like the winds. We cannot fully understand everyone, so, why pass a severe and harsh judgment on him. An action of a person or even one of our friends is often misjudged, because We give a too hasty decision. The only evidence we gather is gossip, which is a very good friend to misunderstanding. We know only-one side of the issue. Why do we have any more right than a judge at court? He lis- tens to both the plaintiff and defendant. He is given an understanding of the conditions of the caseg he does not decide at once but carefully weighs them on the scales of justice. We should be more considerate and respectful. We should try to understand as fully as possible the person in question before passing our judgment on him. -CHAS. F. PIPPEN, '25 X RAINBOWS A storm had swept the valley one summer afternoon. As it passed on, a beautiful rainbow arched the sky. Who of us has not seen' a rain- bow? Rainbows are usually the same, perhaps, some a little more bril- Fifty-Jive ? l TNF:-iF-DFIINET liant than others, but they diifer greatly in the message they give to the people beholding their beauty. Here is a group of girls who had wandered away from home gath- ering iiowers. The rainbow means to them a chance of getting home. To the minister gazing at it from his study window, it is the manifesta- tion of God's divine love and protection. An artist chancing that way, sees a beautiful picture in its glorious hues. A farmer dwelling in the valley sees in the rainbow a promise of again working in his fields. A poet finds in it an inspiration for his poem. Life holds many rainbows for us- Some are brilliant, others scarcely perceptible, and still others conceal pots of gold. Yes, they are there and it is our task to find them. Sometimes our sight is blinded and, forgetting the silver lining, we see only the clouds. Sometimes we find the pot of gold and are wholly ignorant of its value. The poet's pot -of gold was his poem. The artist's pot of gold was his picture. Rainbows do not hold the same treasures, do not mean the same things to everyone of us. It is suiiicient for us to know that some- where a rainbow holds a fmessage especially for us, if we but find it. --MABLE FREDERICK, '25 BOYS The Boys! Who are they, what are they? Their work and their play is a question of vital importance that is being discussed throughout the universe today. The business men are coming into closer contact with the boys, to keep them from going the wrong way, because they see in them not only the boys of today, but also the presidents, politicians, doctors, lawyers, and business men of tomorrow. "The youths of today," says President Coolidge, "are future America." The high school and college boys of today with their wide trou'sers, their English model suits, their loud iiashy bow ties, their turned down hats, their wide broad shoes with their passionate sox, are not the lawless and worthless boys that some people think they are, but instead they are the life of the nation. They do their work and their studies, they go to their football games and their dances, and they attend parties or prepare lessons with the same enthusiasm. They love fair play and good sports- manship, they give each other the helping hand in their work and make many sacrifices for each other in time of trouble. Especially is this true of college life, where boys are thrown together from many different parts of the country. They have to give and take without complaint, they know the value of friendship, so they share their clothes, their books, their Fifty- six b-eds and their pleasures with the other fellow. They are always willing to help someone who is in trouble and who is down and out. Many older people think the boys of today are too fast and lead too high a life, but they are living in a fast age, and the ways of our fathers, twenty-five and fifty years ago would be out of place in this age- It is true that the boys and young men of today have more advantages than their fathers did when they were boys, butt the problems they confront today are far more serious and difficult than those that our fathers met. One of these is the question of his educationg the day of the "Jack of all trades" is past and unless a young man has some profession in which he is skilled he will lose out. The older men realize this much more than the youth so consequently they are giving them the helping hand, that the American boys may be efficiently educated in life and that the youth may be successful in the building up of future America. -GEORGE PEPPLE, '25 CLASS POEM fWith Apologies to Tennyson! School days and studies o'er And no more roaming here, CYetJ still we feel that longing and regret As the closing days draw near. Farewell classmates, adieu To our High School days now past, But may we see each other's face, As long as life shall last. Yet such a tide of leaving makes us sad, To think that we must go, And leave our studies to our successors' fate, Which they, too, must know. But: our work is not complete, Our lessons are just begun, And shall we ever strive to do our best, With each arising sun. But though while in our place of duty as we toil In the ways of peace and strife, We still shall use our faculty's advice As we go our way in life. -MABLE STRAUSS, '25 Fifty-seven 1' l NF! FDI-:U5l EI T' Fifty-eight I HATE TO GO In five more weeks the term will end, And little doubt it must be so, But, as I tell my dearest friends I hate to go. Four short years I've gone and come, Long with the lowest of the low, Yet, though the farm house be my home, I hate to go. T'was good to sit and turn the leaves, And hear of others weal and woe, Even from the assembly room I hate to go. Commencement day will soon be here, We'11 say farewell to all, and tho' These heights were very hard to climb, I hate to go. -MYRTLE FREDERICK '25 GREAT MEN OF LONG AGO The room grew dark and the show began, The first picture shown was that of a man Well-known to all with knowledge sundry 'Twas Washington, the Father of Our Country. The picture showed his Virginian home, Bright Bowers and foliage around it had clombg He came from the gentry of the South Who now must live from hand to mouth. After a while the show changed 'round, We saw Lincoln, who with jokes abound Was the saviour of our country dear, For since, we have not lived in fear. It also showed his Illinois home, 'Twas made of logs filled up with loam, The difference in birth of these men is great But after all wasn't it fate? So boys and girls try, try again For when you grow to be women and men, You will iind that birth is of little account To reach the heights which you must mount. -THELMA ABELL '25. Snrietg Nates FRESHMAN YEAR What a varied career the class has had. As Freshmen, society was a thing of which we were m-ost afraid, for we were young and unac- quainted with etiquette books. But what glorious times we had! Walter Ulery was always one of our best entertainers, and when we could think of no suitable way of making our debut, Walter came to the rescue and invited us to a "'wienie" roast at his home. After the eats we played games until we were so tired we just had to go home. After that first sip into the cup of pleasure, we were eager for more, so, Mary invited us to come to the Landis farm and have another "wienie" roast. There were several high school skating parties, but we were just a little young to enjoy them. At graduation we made our first formal appearance. We always will say that our decorations are the very prettiest and then "good looking people help so much!" SOPHOMORE YEAR We almost outgrew our childish pastimes during our Sophomore year. We had only one "wienie" roast fat Geyer's daml- It didn't last very long so most of us went to Seidner's for refreshments. For the first time in our career we were allowed to attend the Hal- lowe'en party in the gym. It was quite a new and thrilling experience to be allowed to enjoy the parties with the upper classmen. Our hearts having turned toward grown-up parties, we had a Val- entine party in the Primary building. We exchanged valentines and had an enjoyable time. Feeling ourselves in need of funds and always mindful of the future, we gave a play. "THE KENTUCKY BELLE" was quite an undertaking for so young a group but proved to be a decided success. In order to celebrate the summer vacation, we decided to have a party at the "Stoop's Cottage" fthe hang-out of the "Dirty Seven"J in Pickwick Park, Lake Wawasee, Indiana. "The Dirty Seven" went a day ahead fThursdayJ in order to cut the grass and wash the "mice tracks" off of the dishes. The class came down the next afternoon and were wel- comed by one million and seventeen June Bugs. We all enjoyed the "rain water sodas" prepared by the "Kale Islanders." Most of us went STRAIGHT HOME after supper and felt that our time was happily spent- Fifty-'nine fi T' 1 INII-T-iF-:F-'1llSlE'l" JUNIOR YEAR Our first party in our Junior year was a watermelon feed at Doris Pippenger'-s, and speaking of watermelons, O! Needless to say we had a wonderful time. We had another "wienie" roast at Mary Landis'. Played games and returned home weary but happy. The annual Hallowe'en party was held in the gymnasium. The stunts and "eats" were the main features of the evening. In February we sponsored the moving picture "To Have and to Hold." The proceeds went toward the reception fund. Feeling that our talents as actors and actresses needed airing, we de- cided to give a little play for the benefit of the rest of the school. "Fun in a Photo Gallery," which turned out to be funl in the assembly, was suc- cessfully presented. The Junior-Senior Reception was the "Big Feature" of the year and naturally was a decided success. SENIOR YEAR With a few exceptions our Senior year has been almost devoid of parties. The Hallowe'en party was under our m-anagement and we had a very "spooky" time. Since Mr. Yoder had never been surprised, we gave him a real one cn his birthday- If he enjoyed it as much as we di-d, he'd like to be sur- prised again. The farewell party given in our honor by the Juniors will be one of the largest social events of our entire career. Mr. Abell will act as toastmaster and with this program why sh-0uldn't we enjoy ourselves? -.qi--u PROGRAM Junior-Senior Reception, May 8, 1925 Coppes Hotel Toastmaster ....... ................... ............-.---..---............. ......,,.

Sixty INII:-iF-DF:-ilNIEI'l" CHAPEL EXERCISES School is usually thought of as a curriculum of the study of litera- ture, history, language and science-those subjects. which help to develop the mental side of our lives. It is to bring to our minds the deeper, the more inspirational and worth-while side of life that chapel exercises are held. They lift us to a higher plane of living, awaken in us our ambitions, and lead us to the great Open Door called "Opportunity" Rev. Weaver of Danvers, Illinois, gave a short talk on the "Parable of the Sowersf' comparing our minds to the ground and our education to the seeds- A very interesting talk was given to us by Mr. Fenton on the sub- ject, "Does Crime Pay?" He was a thief for twenty-three years, was arrested twenty-seven times in four different countries and spent eight years in jail. Among the good thoughts which he left us are: the only prevention of crime is education, both mentally and spirituallyg you never go down in sin alone, choose good company, and play the game square. In November Rev. Royer of the Brethren Church gave us an ad- dress on "Temperance" This was to celebrate the adoption of the Eight- eenth Amendment to our Constitution. He took for his scripture read- ing the addition problem of the Bible- "And beside this, giving all dili- gence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledgeg and to knowl- edge temperance, and to temperance patienceg and to patience godlinessg and to godliness brotherly kindness: and to brotherly kindness charity." Rev. Schwalm, Dean of North Manchester College, spoke to us about the bigger and better things of life. As he spoke we felt the desire to "'hitch our wagon to a star" and jealously strive to accomplish that aim. On April 13 the quartette of the Bluffton College Men's Glee Club gave a short program in the assembly- Besides the vocal selections, sev- eral piano solos were rendered. The appreciation of the program was shown by the hearty applause given them. The pastors of the various churches of the town have come to us in our Chapel Exercises and have left us many valuable and inspiring thoughts. We can all surely say that the Chapel Exercises have helped us to live out the little stanza written by Holmes: "Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting seal' Sixty-one INIFRIDIQINIET "THE CHARM SCHOOL " When the members of the class of '25 decided to give their Senior Class play they aimed to present the best one ever given in Nappanee. They took time and care to select a play of high rank and the one which was most suitable for the class to give. "THE CHARM SCHOOL", was presented on the evening of March 26th. and 27th. The warm applause and enthusiastic comments of the audiences were ample reward tor the time and effort spent on it. The class feels it has accomplished its aim. The Class of '25 gives Miss Dickey a unanimous vote of appreciation for ner successful direction and presentation of the play. She received many compliments on her work and the Seniors feel that they acted wisely in choosing her as their coach. Perhaps a few members of the cast deserve special mention because of their char- acter interpretation and their acting but the general opinion is that no one did poorly and that each individual played his role so well that it is difficult to say who did best. Financially the class did not come quite up to its aim, because of the high royalty and other expenses. The gross receipts totaled 512385.00 THE CAST Austin Bevans a Motor Dealer with ideas, which LaMar Stoops a Law Student considers unpractical, though David MacKenzie Walter 'Ulery George Boyd Jim Bradbury and ' Tim Bradbury Homer Johns Elise Bendotti Miss Hayes Miss Curtis Sally Boyd Ethel Alix Madge Muriel Clarlotte Lillian Siarty-two an Expert Accountant, is willing to co-operate and so are who toil not and have never seriously considered spinning. . is the guardian of the head of the senior class at a school presided over by who is loved and feared by all who know her- including the secretary- who is always trying to think well of the senior class consisting of who is Georg-e's sister The young ladies of the school George Pepple Firm Pippen and Victor Wyman LaMar Wehrly Mary Landis Doris Pippenger Marjorie Price Katharine Rickert Nettie Hershberger Eloise Ganger Kathryn Lantz Thelma Abell Ione Best Elizabeth Inks PII:-lF:F:llNIE'l" INN:-ll:l:llSlE"l"' JUNIOR CAST JUNIOR CLASS PLAY " FIFTY-FIFTY " A Comedy in Three Acts.

Sixteen young men were 'present at the meeting and under the direction of J- A. Abell, the faculty adviser for the organiation, elected their officers and committee chairmen. The purpose of the organization is to "create and maintain a high type of Christian character throughout the community." The motto is "Clean speech, clean scholarship, clean athletics, and clean living." . On February 3rd the organization had the initiation administered by the Goshen Hi-Y and was thus made a chartered organization. The or- ganization is growing steadily and it is hoped that in the near future many more young men will pledge themselves to the organization and uphold its principles. The first officers elected by the Hi-Y are: President, George Pepple Vice President, LaMar Stoops Secretary, LaMar Wehrly Treasurer, Walter Ulery Sixty-seven IINIF1'-IF-DIIIISIET T GIRL RESERVES CLUB 4 Top Row-Left to Right: Doris Pippenger, Edith Knox, Edna Housouer, Goldie Stahly, Beatrice Hummel, Mildred Stouder, Edna Minard.

It is a division of the Young Women's Christian Association. The sym- bol of the Girl Reserves is the Blue Triangle which is typical of the high- est type of service for God and country. The base of the Blue Triangle is Spirit, its two sides are Knowledge and Health. This means that the Blue Triangle girl is physically fit, and is mentally and morally trained- The purpose "To find and give the best" has been modified by our local girls as follows: "Our purpose is to encourage the High Sch-ool girls to be clean in thought, word, and deedg to develop socially, mentally, physi- cally, and morallyg and to live as Christian citizens in the community."

' The girls in the Domestic Science Department have accomplished quite a bit of Work this year. The kitchen was enlarged and some new equipment bought, which enabled us to accommodate twenty-four girls in a cooking class. The first semester was devoted to the study of foods and cookery. The different kinds of food and their uses in the body were studied first, and meal planning was emphasized. In all the cooking lessons we have insisted that the girls learn to eat the foods which were best for their health and foods which were often considered commonplace and un- attractive were prepared in attractive waysL The second semester was given over to sewing and the study of costume design. The girls studied the kinds of clothes suited to their own individual types and appropriate to the occasion on which they were worn. Different colors for different types of girls were studied. In this course emphasis was placed upon simplicity in dress for the high school girl. An exhibit was held on May 15th when work from both the cook- ing and sewing classes was displayed.

The Manual Training Department has a smaller enrollment of high school fboys this year than last, but by the aid of some new equipment they are advancing the pace set by former students. The boys show much interest in their work under the direction of Mr. Crooks. The course is required of all seventh and eighth grade boys and is elective to high school boys. The seventh and eighth grade boys work chiefly from the standpoint of learning the use and care of tools. They get their training by making articles of furniture which give prerequisite training for more difficult projects. The ninth year work for the most part is at continuation of the eighth- Some repetition is demanded by boys who come from the country and have had no previous instruction in shop work. Half of the time in one semester is spent in industrial drawing. Seventy-three 1 INII-:ll-TDI-1'-:llNIE"l" READERS AND ORATORS READING AND ORATORICAL ACTIVITIES This phase of work is very often sadly neglected in a great many schools. Some students are inclined to be too much interested in athletics and forget that there is also in the school a number of students who are greatly interested in expression and oratory. Margrete Beach represented our school in the County Discussion League at Elk- hart on March 26. The topic for discussion was: "The Child Labor Amendment." Elk- hart received first place and Margrete tied for second place with Goshen's representa- tive. The topic was ably discussed showing that "Young America" is interested in problems of state and is bound to aid materially in the progress of future America. Every year a local contest is held in our school to determine what students shall represent Nappanee at the County Contest. ' The following readers won medals: first, Beatrice Tea, second, Florence Sund- strom, and the orators as follows: first, George Landis, second, Kenneth Stouder.

Nappanee was not a "boom town" supported by oil wells or gold - f fields, but was surrounded by forests on all sides except the south where there was an almost impregnable swamp and therefore not very encour- aging to settlers. So the founding of Nappanee was largely due to the Chicago Division of the B. 8z O. Railroad building a station here in 1874. The storekeepers at Locke hoping to make more progress with railroad advantages moved to Nappanee and opened stores here- The original town site was laid out on the farms of Messrs. Daniel Metzler, John Culp, Jr., and Henry Stahly, Sr., about the middle of December, 1874, and lots were offered for sale- Finally a meeting was called to dec-ide upon a name. Several names were suggested -but were not satisfactory to railroad officials because they were similar to other names already on the line. So, as they could not come to any conclusions, Mr. George Eby, brother of the first station agent, suggested the name Nappanee, because he came from Nappanee, Canada. The name Nap- panee is an Indian name meaning "Beautiful Maiden." There is also a myth concerning the origin of the name about an Indian maiden, sitting down, resting her weary head upon her knees which suggested Nap-on- Seventy-five ,N1:uF:F:uNE:'r knee. Other persons concerned wanted it called Locke Station. The railroad officials adopted the name Napanee, however, and later when the town was surveyed and the papers for a Post Oiiice drawn up, the Postal Department of Washington adopted the name Napanee but spelled it with two ups." 'In 1874 the present streets of Nappanee were nothing but mud pud- dles and many citizens can remember building a bridge on North Main Street so that the children might get to school. Nappanee was laid out on the "water shed" which is the highest tract of land in this part of the country. The water on the north side of Market Street flows into the Great Lakes and that on the south side into the Gulf of Mexico. The first lots were sold in 1875 to Mr. C. D. Volkman who purchased them for S20 with a promise to bring his family here and pay S60 later- It has been said that he built his house in zero weather by the light of a rail fire. Hartmans established a branch department store here in 1879. A saw mill was started, where the Methodist Church now stands, owned by Mellinger and Meyers- Then in 1881 Frank and John Coppes bought Meyers' share for one hundred and fifty dollars and the firm later be- came known as Coppes Bros. and Zook. Joseph Strohm established al planing mill in the town which consisted of a depot and general store combined. a sawmill. a blacksmith shop and one dwelling house. In 1881 Hon. George Freese established a creamery and dealt in butter, eggs, etc. The Freeses have the distinction of having the first creameiry in Indiana. The Farmers 8a Traders Bank was established in 1884 by Bechtel. Samuel Coppes after paying for his farm decided on the project of erecting a new bank and finding Bechtel willing to sell, he purchased it in 1891, and also built the Coppes Hotel in that year. In 1888 Nappanee assumed municipal affairs- In- 1878 the Public Schools were started and in September, 1895, the High School was or- ganized by Prof. Baer. English, Latin or German, Mathematics, History and Science were offered. So, thus the school developed from a little frame building fifty years ago to the magnificent structure of educational development that we possess today. In 1902 the first auto, an Oldsmobile, was bought by Mr. Volkman. Nappanee is a clean city, morally, religiously and socially. It has ten miles of paved streets and is paving more. It has eleven churches and a population of about three thousand. "The principles of honor, quality, strength and service ever lead the world of business forward to greater efficiency and sounder development." In accordance with this rule Nappanee has thirteen factories, at the present time, several of which are nationally advertised. There are four blocks of business dis- trict. Nappanee is the proud possessor of two parks which are being developed and improved with great interest of every citizen of the com- muinity. Nappanee has an active Kiwanis Club that is trying to put Nappanee on the map. Nappanee is today celebrating the fiftieth anni- versary of its founding, being very proud of the achievements of the past fifty years- With its rapidity of growth, unity of citizenship and rural cooperation it is destined without question to be the second city in population in the county. -ELIZABETH INKS Seventy-six GOLDEN JUBILEE SNAPS Seventy-sz--v DIPLOMA HOUR fSpeaker, Mr. Abellj The graduating class of 1925 numbers 37 students. There are fifteen boys and twenty-tw-o girls- Q No month has a monopoly as January, May, August, and December each claim five, with July and October close seconds, each claiming four. The objectionable months are cold February, rainy April, and November with its turkey, no pupil having a birthday in any one 'of those three months. There are few coincidences in their several birthdays, such as "so-called twins," or several b-orn on important holidays, e. g. February 2nd or March 17th. However, one student was born on May 30th and another on December 25th. June is frequently a. favorite month, especially with the girls, but lovely June claims only three and one is a boy. The average age of the boys is 18 years, 3 months, 14 13-15 days. The average age of the girls is 18 years, 3 months, 13 9-22 days. The average deportment for the boys is 93.5 per cent. The average deportment for the girls is 97.3 per cent. The average days missed by the boys is 23 2-7. The average days missed by the girlsis 16 3-20. The average grade of all boys- is 86.6 per cent. The average grade of all girls is 92.1 per cent. The oldest pupil is a boyg the youngest, a girl. Two girls have been neither tardy nor absent during four years. Two girls have missed only one day, and one girl only a day and a half in four years. Seven girls have perfect records for the Senior year. The Class of '25 put on their own commencement. The Salutatory was given by Thelma Abell. ' The Valedictorian was Mabel Frederick. The Senior play was entitled "The Charm School. 99 The gross door receipts were 3385.00 The Senior Memorial is a beautiful large silk flag for Assembly room. The class published 400 copies of The Napanet. Approximate cost of The Napanet is 51,100.00 Editor-in-Chief, Edith Knox Business Manager, LaMar Stoops. Important Date, May 22, 1925.

Nappanee High School in the autumn of 1924 started out on a new policy with regard to athletics and physical training, by employing an athletic coach whose chief business is to look after this department of the work. Mr. Longfellow, the new coach, came from Leesburg where he had had two very successful years as teacher and coach, winning the Kosciusko County championship in basket ball the second year he was in charge. The wisdom of selecting Mr. Longfellow has already been demonstrated by the results in baseball last fall and by the basket ball season. Out of twenty games of basket ball played during the season, the team lost only four, each game was lost by a very small margin. Two of these games were lost to the strong Milford team that went to the State Tournament, by margins of one and three points respectively. Some of the best teams of this section were on our schedule and were defeated by the smooth working machine known as the "Long'fellows." The baseball season was equally good. Out of five games played in the fall of 1924, the beam was successful in every instance. While praising the work of our coach, we must not fail to give full credit to the boys who composed the team. Most' of these boys were unsparing in the amount of time given to training, and likewise excelled the Spartans in their devotion to training rules. They had the spirit that puts school first and self in the background-the kind of spirit that makes for democracy as well as successful team work. In recognition of this good work the undergraduates were given a free trip to the State Tournament, while the Seniors will receive Honor Sweaters from the school. For spring work the school has both a baseball program and a track program. N. H. S. is now a member of The Saint Joseph Valley Baseball League composed of South Bend, Laporte, Goshen, Middlebury, Walkerton, and Nappanee. A series of ten games will be played-two at each city. A preliminary game with Wakarusa has al- ready been played, resulting in a defeat for our neighbors to the tune of 6 to 0. Season tickets for baseball are being sold to students for fifty cents, a price placed so cheap that every student can afford to attend and support the team. Track work is now on a much better footing. At least fifteen boys are taking intensive training, while many more are becoming interested and learning their first lessons in track and field work. A good athletic field, not too farbfrom the school build- ing, is a necessity right now if we are to compete with such schools as Goshen, Wakarusa and a few others who already have good athletic fields. Seventy-nine Eighty FIRST TEAM BASKET BALL ' lNlF:lF-:I-:llNIE"l"' BASKET BALL TEAM JOHN LONGFELLOW "Coach" For the success of our team as a whole, the credit goes to our coach, John Long- fellow, who has spent unlimited time and energy that our school might have awinning team. He is a great favorite with "the boys," and in every game the team fought for their coach as well as for the school. Longfellow will have a winning team next year. LA MAR WEHRLY llHank!7 Much credit for the success of our team goes to our center, whose steady playing and excellent shooting kept the score keepers busy. Hank was all sectional center, and was the main standby of the team, always being at his post. His good work will be missed next year. Hank leaves in the spring. ' LA VON MELLINGER Hlkeii This port sider kept opposing guards busy all the time. His exceptional eye for the field and foul goals is his chief characteristic. Being level headed and cool made Ike a valuable man. He has another year with the team. ' ALFRED TOBIAS "Snook" Little but mighty is Snook. Fast thinking and good fioorwork made him a valuable man, besides being a model for training rules. To drop the pill in at the time it was needed most was his program. Greater work is expected of him next year. HERBERT HOLDERMAN llHerbH Herb held the position of floor guard and this speedy man was always found where the ball happened to be. To break up the opposing team's passes was one of Herb's favorite stunts. Herb has never missed a practice throughout the year. Lost by Graduation. JAY WYSONG N llJay!! Our Freshman back guard and center sprung into prominence over night. He al- ways held down his man and could bring the ball down the floor at will. His smash and consistent playing kept the spirits of the opposing team at a low ebb. Jay will make a strong bid for center next year. WALTER ULERY lCEdU Ed was our main back guard. Long and Lankey was he, but whenever the ball got within reach of his monkey hands it was a goner. Ed played a steady but clean game and was always ready to step in and do his bit. , Ed is a Senior this year. VIRGIL STUCKMAN "Steve" Whenever any spectacular shooting was to be done, Coach Longfellow ran in Steve. He had an eye for the basket at all angles, and saved the old Blue and White from defeat more than once. His speed and accuracy was a great help to the team. One more year for N. H. S. , Eighty-one Pll:ll:F:ll5lE'l" KENNETH STOUDER , l6KenH Ken was our Sub backguard. He handled this position in a very efficient manner and was eifective in his playing. Ken had a. lot of smash and would easily break through the opponent's defense. Also lost by gaduation. - LOWELL SHEETS HPopD A good reliable sub was Sheets, who came in handy on many occasions and has been very valuable to the team. Sheets always dropped in the pill at the right time. Besides being a. sub for thelvarsity, Pop was the main cog of the second team. He leaves in the spring. Nappanee High School has been producing good basket ball teams of late years, but the 1924-'25 season was the most successful of recent years, the team having played 24 games and won 18. The season scores are as follows: October - 17 at Ligonier Nappanee 20 Ligonier 27 " 24 at Nappanee " 26 Leesburg 15 " 31 at " " 24 Milford 25 November 7 at " 30 Bristol 17 " 14 at Bremen 24 Q Bremen 15 " 21 at Bourbon 25 Bourbon 17 " 26 at Nappanee 37 Bremen 14 December 5 at Goshen 24 Goshen 23 " 6 at Nappanee 33 Mishawaka 31 " 12 at " 30 Ligonier 29 " 19 at Leesburg 33 Leesburg 17 January 2 at Milford 31 Milford 34 " 9 at Lakeville 34 Lakeville 16 " 17 at Nappanee 43 Goshen 28 " 23 at " 23 New Paris 14 February 6 at Elkhart 30 Elkhart 43 " 13 at Nappanee 36 Bourbon 17 " 14 at Bristol 12 Bristol 20 20 at New Paris 18 New Paris 16 27 at Nappanee " 41 Lakeville 8 COUNTY TOURNAMENT AT GOSHEN January 30 Nappanee 22 Wakarusa 15 " 31 " 20 .

Honor sweaters will be granted to Seniors only. Service stripes are awarded for each year of faithful service. Honor letters are awarded to under class- men. The following boys were awarded sweaters: LaMar Wehrly, Herbert Holderman, Lowell Sheets, Kenneth Stouder and Walter Ulery. Honor letters were awarded to Alfred Tobias, LaVon Mellinger, Jay Wysong and Virgil Stuckman. Eighty-two THE BEST BASKET BALL GAMES OF 1924-1925 NAPPANEE 243 MILFORD 25 The Basket Ball season opened October 31 and Nappanee sank under the in- vincible Milford quintet to the tune of 24-25. The game was fast and thrilling with many shots to keep the fans on edge. Our fellows fought a hard but losing game and "old lady luck" smiled on the Milford boys and the final shot saw our opponents the victors. The team however was not discouraged at this defeat. NAPPANEE 433 GGSHEN 23 In the Goshen game, Nappanee led off to a good start by clean consistent passwork and maintained a substantial lead throughout the game. The Goshen players fought desperately to stop the criss-cross passing but seemed never to get into the right place to stop pit, while their plays seemed principally long shots from most any part of the floor. We led at the half 20 to 7 and at the close of the play 43 to 28. The Nappanee players were Mellinger, Tobias, forwards, Wehrly center and Holderman and Wysong guards, Stuckman substituted for Mellinger and Stouder for Wysong. NAPPANEE 335 MISHAWAKA 31 Playing a superior brand of ball the N. H. S. "horsemen" defeated the Mishawaka five in a hard fought game on our own floor. Shots all during the game were thick and fast and many pretty baskets were made. Nappanee had the lead most of the time and by a series of short passes and the clever work of Wehrly and Tobias secured a rather comfortable lead which they held until the final "pop" of the gun. Fine sportsmanship was displayed by both teams. NAPPANEE 303 LIGONIER 29 Our effective "five man" defense and a speedy offense furthered the means of a victory over the Ligonier crew. Every man on the squad showed marked improvement and played a fighting game all the Way through. The unerring shots of Mellinger and Wehrly and the excellent work of our door guard, "froze" the Ligonier bunch to the fioor and the tide turned in our favor. NAPPANEE 335 LEESBURG 17 Leesburg appeared to be practically the easiest victim of the season. The game was a runaway. The lineup was changed in many ways to allow other members of the squad to have an opportunity to play. NAPPANEE 373 BREMEN 14 The contest was only a practice for the squad as the Bremen five were unable to hit the basket. It was amusing to see our players take turns at shooting. This how- ever gave another victory to the N. H. S. squad. Eighty-three BNF'-IFDFIIISIET Eig,,,,,,,,,,,, GIRLS' BASKET BALL TEAM I 1 INII-:lF:l:llNlEI'l" 1 GIRLS' BASKET BALL 1925 Under the stern leadership of Coach Stemen and advice of Manager Longfellow the girls met with defeat only by Bourbon and Lakeville. The first combat of the season was with New Paris, who entered the game full of pep and determination but were unable to advance their score with Widmoyer guarding, while Weaver and Minard fed the home basket. The return game was also one sided. The Bourbon games were hard fought, but we were unable to pass the ball while their forwards were unable to miss the goal. The guards played a hard game. Bremen girls out-classed us in size but that is all! We won two striking victories over them. Atwood huskies gave us a fast and hard game but were defeated. Landis and Widmoyer showed excellent skill in guarding. As Lakeville girls have not lost a game this season we had to be the losers. .

There were about fifteen contestants, representing the four different classes of Senior High. The tournament as a whole was "Hot Stuff." Fine tennis was displayed by tne majority of the players, and there were many close and contested games. One by one the weaker players were forced out and the final match was between Junior Pippen and Edgar Miller. The last two contestants should be given a good deal of praise as they displayed much skill on the court, and also showed fine sportsmanship. Although Pippen won the finals, "Tink" Miller gave him a. good rub. Both played with "dogged" determi- nation and all the games were exciting. Miller's fast and speedy ball fooled Pippen on many occasions, but the latter's slow "cut" ball proved too much for "Tink," who was finally beaten after a hard fought battle. Miller was defeated 6-4 and 6-2, but he ac- cepted defeat in an excellent manner. This gives the Tennis championship to Pippen whom we believe rightfully deserved it and who is to be congratulated. Einlstfeipht AINII-:lF:F:llNIEI'l" INTERCLASS TRACK The interclass track and field meet this year under the supervision of our coach, Mr. Longfellow, was a v-ery interesting event. In all there were about 25 contestants representing the four classes of Senior High. Fine sportsmanship was displayed by all the trackmen and they are to be congratulated on their fine work- The meet was closely contested in most of the events, but the other three classes were forced to give in to the Seniors who were victorious and won by an easy margin. The events and the winners were as follows: First Second Third Pole Vault Wehrly Junior Pippen J.

Middlebury was second with 21 points, Millersburg third, with 18 points, Wakarusa 12, Bristol 10, and New Paris 2 points. The contest was easily wofn by the Nappanee boys and they are to be congratulated in their fine work. The team has been training hard all 'spring and were in fine condition for the meet. Nappanee scored but two first places, one less than Middlebury, but the greater reserve strength paved the way for the victory of the Blue and White. Nappanee won seven second places, one tie for second, and three thirds. All through the meet, fine sportsmanship was displayed by all of the men. The Nappanee team rightfully deserved to be the "victors," The team is working hard and are going to bring back the "bacon" from the District Track and Field Meet May 9. Ribbons were presented to the winners of the meet before the entire assembly, Monday morning, April 27- Eighty-nine lNll:ll:'I:-IINIE 'T' SUMMARY OF EVENTS First Second Third 100-Yard Dash Middlebury I-Iolderman Sheets 220-Yard Dash Middlebury Holderman Slabaugh 440-Yard Dash Middlebury Ingle Rhodes Half-Mile Run Rhodes Ingle Middlebury Low Hurdles Phillips Sheets Bristol Running Broad Jump Wakarusa Geyer Wakarusa Running High Jump Bristol Mellinger Wakarusa Shot Put Millersburg Holderman Wakarusa Mile Relay-Won by Nappanee fWysong, Pippen, Tobias, and Ingle.J PHYSICAL TRAINING The purpose of physical training is to teach health habits and develop healthy bodies for every boy and girl. Physical training and athletics are contributory to scholarship, high ideals, real sportsmanship and to the building of proper habits of real living in a- democracy. Real physical training for all boys and girls is built around drills, rhythms, games, con- tests, stunts, competitive activities, and legitimate sports rather than formal gymnastic exercises or around highly organized military train- ing, which are valuable for corrective work- The above along with the intra-mural activities in basket-ball, track, and baseball has formed. the year's physical education program. An effort has been made to link the physical training period with the out of school play activities of the student. A-bout two hundred students of the Junior and Senior schools have participated in physical training, athletics, or the intra-mural work. THE SECOND TEAM RECORD fContinued from Page 86.1 No small amount of credit is due the second team forg The excellent practice given the first team throughout the year, the large number of games Won by this team, and the devotion to school and team-mates demonstrated during the training season. Without a first-class second team it is almost impossible to develop a winning first team, and much is due this team because as a gieneral thing it simply entertains the crowd gathering for the big show. The work of our second string gave definite assurance that the team of 1925-26 will give a good account of itself. On the statisti- cal page will be given a summary of the games played by this speedy bunch. Mr. Longfellow is one of the coaches who believes in the value of a second tea.m, gives them his best attention, and demands of them the same training rules demanded of the first team. Our Second Team was only less successful than our first, playing 11 games and winning 8 of them. The second team deserves quite honorable mention for defeating Elkhart's seconds on February 6th, after Eikhart seconds had defeated six straight teams in a row including, South Bend, Mishawaka, and Goshen seconds and Millers- burg firsts. , N inaty ,I fu , 'wr J:-. xv E! 1, if mass F136 nneou s. + -1:-4 N A, -- -J, 1----frm.-:, -'-:sf---wa- -f M I i I 1 Ll U 1: r N w If gl 'U'luNunmwu.-Haba may M v 1 .
