THE CLASS OF '17
It was only four short years ago, In those days in N. H. S.
When appeared upon the scene,
In N. H. S., with hearts aglow,
But alas those days are over,
The Class of Seventeen.
We're cancelled from the roll,
Now to us they are but memories
Our colors bright of green and white For we've reached the longed for goal.
Have made us forever glorious.
For, as you know' its green things that grow
. , Since we can't go on together
And so we stand victorious.
Let us spare the parting pain,
A Say not goodbye forever
Much have we learned in these four years, But just Aufurederselm.
To help us win success.
Nor were there good times lacking NORMA MCFADDEN

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
When we, the class of 1917 entered the Nevada High
School, to a casual observer we were as other Freshman-
even perhaps somewhat insignificant for we were a trifle in
number. Before we had been here long however, the dis-
interested onlooker began to notice us. We entered into
all the activities of school-life with great zeal and aston-
ished everyone by winning the Gold Medal Contest.
Having established a very good reputation, we came
hack rather diminished in number, as all Sophomore
Classes do. We were a very wide awake class, doing our-
selves credit in everything we undertook and again one of
our number distinguished herself by winning the gold
As Juniors, we grew to feel our importance as Juniors
will, for we were almost Seniors and it was time we should
begin to realize our true worth. In this year our girl's bas-
ket ball team prove a fact which had for some time been
evident-that it was the best team in school-by winning
the loving cup.
And, now we are Seniors. Our four years work is
done--our High School days are gone forever. A feeling
of sadness must need steal over us as our parting draws
nigh. Never again will we be together or walk through
these dear familiar halls as of old. And as we stand on the
brink of parting we look back over the happy days we have
spent here and sigh that we can not live them over again.
And yet we would not change it if we could for we know it
must be. With the great battle of life before us we dare
not linger here. But in this conflict in which every one or
us must engage shall we ever forget the beloved instructors
who have labored with us so faithfully? Shall we ever for-
get the joys and trials we have gone through here together?
CAN we forget? Every Senior joins in the answer, "NO,
THE COMET 27
A PROPHECY FOR THE CLASS OF '17
It was exactly twenty years to the night since the
famous class of 1917 had graduated, and I had been wishing
all day that I knew just what had become of everybody.
Suddenly I thought of Soph now Sophina Bergina, the
famous "trance medium." I know, I said, I'll have Soph
go into a trance and find out all about them.
Soph was alone asI entered her dim wonderfully
furnished apartment. "Oh Harriet," she said, "I was just
thinking about you. Do you know what today is?
"Yes of course, that's one reason why I came to see
you," Ianswered, "I want to know where everybody is.
Of course, I know about some of them, for instance, every-
body knows Kenneth is the greatest Evangelist the world has
ever had. But then that didn't surprise me much for I
remember in Economics he was always telling us that we
must do all the good possible so that when we got to
Heaven we could look down upon our life's work and be
proud of ourselves. And then of course Faye has made a
wonderful success in Movies, they say her salary equals that
of the President, while Judith is starring this year in "Little
Lorraine the Deacon's Daughter," the biggest hit of the
season. Oh yes, and Lester's at the Metropolitan this week
with his Honk Honk machine, you remember, Soph he
began that in High School. I've heard that the King of
England and the President of Germany, have both awarded
him medals for his wonderful invention.
. Well let me see-- those are all I can think of now,
Soph, you find out about the rest.
"All right," said Soph, Hssscicch-don't make a
silence or you'll disturb my trance."
And this is what she saw:
"Before me there is a great crowd-seems to be some
kind of a convention-ah yes, it's a teachers convention, I
see Beulah Taylor, Rachel Graham, Beatrice Kizer, Ollie
Leonard, Mamie Selim, Ora OToole, Sallie Taylor and
Margaret Stevenson with Norma McFadden lecturing to
them in thirty-three different languages. Hum, I always
knew she'd make a lecturer, she loved to talk so well.
Now the scene changes and I see an immense battle
ship and yes-there on the signal bridge are Willie Wyatt
28 THE COMET
and' Henry Maze. How cute they look in their blue
Then let me see-Meryle, Mary, Goldie, Corine,
Violet, Irene and Donna have crossed the "great divide,
the bourne from which no troublers return, the"-in other
words they're married!
Next I see Congress in session, with Lawrence Chat-
man, Democratic leader in the Senate, swaying all with his
marvelous eloquence, while in the House are Ruth and
Dorothy, our representatives from Missouri.
Now I'm on a Military Reservation. Isee a sham
battle, I hear the blast of trumpets and the sound of tramp-
ing feet, and there in the midst of the fray is a regiment or
soldiers, led by Homer Martin, with Wallace and Joe
marching proudly along. "Hi there, Wallace quit your
flirting with your sister soldier!" shouts Col. Martin.
Behind the lines we see the tents of the Red Cross.
Within Nell Cormack and Bertha Middleton are caring for the
overworked and underfed soldiers, lthat's according to El-
bert Foland, head ot the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals! Then suddenly a delegation rushes
upon the scene wildly waving white iiags and yelling
"Peace, peace at any price!" It's led by Clinton and fol-
lowing are Denice, Lois, Orpha, Hazel and Mabel.
Ah, I hear music, beautiful music-it is Agnes singing
accompanied by Alice on the violin and Hazel Hill on
Now before me looms Drink Water University
where Hazel Farley has charge of the physical culture de-
partment, while Madaline preaches the value of the union
to labor, and Anna Ferry teaches Art.
And now I take a distant Bight to South America and
behold!-there is Blanch Hayes in Chile!
Suddenly there was a sharp clang at the doorbell and
Soph awoke with a start. "O dear! she said, "there is an-
other client. Well, did I tell you all aboutthem?" "Yes,'
I answered and I'm sure we can all be mighty proud of our
class of '17.
In the year of nineteen fourteen
In that year of peace and plenty
Came a class into the High School
To the High School of Nevada.
From all schools we came together
From the city and the country
CWith Apologies to Longfellowj
Banded in this school together.
Full three years we've been together
We are Juniors now and mighty,
Mightiest of classes are we.
We it was who had a hay-ride
On a moonlight autumn evening
Took the teachers and went riding
To the woods to eat our supper.
And we also had a party.
Had it in the month, October
Masked as ghosts and spirits were we
On that quiet autumn evening.
And we won in oratory
Reed it was who won the glory
Won the medal as a trophy
As a trophy for the Juniors.
Our fair maidens had a program
Had a minstrel for amusement
Had it for the High School pupils.
In all sports we are the foremost
We it was who beat the Seniors
Beat the Seniors and the Freshman
Played at basket-ball and beat them
Won the trophy and the praises
From the other High School classes
In attendance we are better
Than the other High School classes.
Go ye out into the High School
Sing the praises of the Juniors
Sing the loud and glorious praises
Of the mightiest of the classes.

JUNIOR CLASS REPORT
Nevada High School, April 15, 1917.
Dear Old Man:
We sure do miss you this year, but even without you
our class is still the bright and shining star of the High
In every way possible we have displayed our brilli-
ancy, and we think that our rank as the best class in High
School cannot be disputed.
Why, what would the boys' basket ball team be with-
out Poland, Cox and Turnbull. And then there is the
girls' team, but everybody has seen them play, and knows
that Levens, Atherton and Dixon are the main part of the
team. In our basket ball record we have only one regret
and that is the Junior girls, tho they put up a fine game, did
not win the loving cup by two points. Our boys, however,
after two sharp contests did win and in our Senior year we
will have the honor of keeping the cup in a conspicuaus
place in our assembly room.
Look at the debating team-why we would not have
had one if it hadn't been for Crigler and Palmer-and,
In the gold medal contest Carl Reed displayed his
great power of oratory and won the decision of the judges.
Talk about good times, haven't we had them tho.
In the fall, safely guarded by several chaperones we went
on a hay ride and had a feast at Sulphur Springs. Wienies,
marshmallows, sandwiches and cake-we ate as if we were
starved, and in an incredibly short time there was nothing
remaining of the eats but scraps, and mighty few of them.
Then, on top of all that, we had a Hallowe'en party
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Gilbert. This
was a masquerade and no specimen of humanity was lack-
ing, from the millionaire to the hobo and all were treated
with the utmost courtesy, and had a glorious time.
Come back and visit us next year and see if "1918"
doesn't make the dandiest class old N. H. S. has ever seen.
JACOB SUMMERS, 'I8.
TRIALS OF A SOPHOMORE
My teacher says for me to write
A poem-Whew! isn't that a fright,
First! I don't know a thing to say-
And second-I don't know the proper way.
I've thought and thought the matter o're,
And haven't a single idea more.
What can I do when my brains won't work
There's just one thing-and that to shirk.
Then teacher's eyes will look me thro,
And wonder what in the world to do
With a Soph who sure can-and don't
She's sure to think its only wont.
How did the wondrous men of old
Write such poems as we are told
How could they find the words that rhyme
And feet-and other things to chime.
I'm getting so sleepy I cannot think
I guess I'll rest for just a wink
In my dreams some vision clear may come
If not-I must be registered dumb.

SO PHOM ORE
When the Sophomore Class appeared on the
horizon ofthe High School as,Freshmen in 1916 they were
found to be ideal "Freshies" It is very hard to be an ideal
Freshman but this class succeeded in accomplishing the feat.
Only once did it do anything out of the usual order and
that was when the Freshmen girls beat the Sophmore girls
in Basket Ball.
As this ideal class went up one round in the High
School ladder it found itself confronted with a more diffi-
cult position, that of an ideal Sophomore.
A Sophomore, you know, is one partly ignored by
the Juniors, completely ignored by the Seniors and seldom
recognized by the Freshmen. He is the middle man, a

person interested only in "Caesar" and "Plane Geometry,"
one to he seen and not heard.
But the members of this class started out to prove
that they could be ideal Sophomores and yet be heard at
times. To do this a Sophomore girl won the gold medal
inthe Declamatory contest. The girls Basket Ball team
beat the Junior girls and the Freshmen girls and even made
the Seniors play hard for the cup, in the class games.
As we go up the ladder if we are as ideal Juniors
and Seniors as we were Freshmen and Sophomores we
will be the greatest class that ever graduated from N. H. S.

But the Senior he smiles, lak dat lil' green Freshie,

Sept. 7, 1916-We, the Freshmen, assembled today
and such a number of us. There are one hundred and
three! Shall we prove to have quality as well as quantity?
Sept. 29-The Faculty and Seniors gave the Fresh-
men and new pupils a reception yesterday. It was lovely.
We had a jolly good time and nice refreshments.
Nov. 6-We elected our ollicers today. They are:
President, Jack Hedges: Vice President, Mary Virginia
Bean, Secretary, Frances Bowman and Treasurer, Earnest
Dec. 8-Our President presided for the first time to-
day over a "Safety-First" program. He is a dandy.
Knows his "Robert's Rule of Order" and makes a dignified
oliicer. The program was good, too. None of the Fresh-
men need ever take out accident insurance if they remem-
ber the lessons given in the papers by the students.
Oct. 23-The Gold Medal contestants were an-
nounced this morning. Among these the Freshmen boast
of two boys and one girl. We don't expect them to win

knocks to come.

THE COMET 47
It has been said that writing is not literature unless it
gives to the reader a pleasure which arises not only from
the things said, but from the way in which they are said:
and that pleasure is only given when the words are carefully
or curiously or beautifully put together in sentences.
But is it for the mere pleasure obtained that we read
the best literature? This is only a minor reason.
The one great purpose for studying literature is to
enable one to read and understand human nature. ln the
writings of former days are voiced the innermost emotions
and ideals of the people of -the time. And when one
studies these emotions and ideals does he not study the
human nature of today? For is not human nature the same
today as it was hundreds and even thousands of years ago?
For instance selfish ambition as characterized in Mac-
beth and the unfair means of fulfilling it still dominates cer-
tain individuals ofthe present. On the other hand the
nobler and better side as represented by Milton is still the
leading characteristic of mankind. The pity and faith ob-
served in Burn's writings, the satire of Pope and Swift anti
48 THE COMET
the gentler emotions in Addison's works are traits ofhuman
character now as much as they were in the times ofthese
Again literature gives the history of a people, Read-
ing from a text book in history we learn for instance that
our Anglo-Saxon ancestors were savage, warlike people.
We read of their cruel customs and of the terrible warfares
they engaged in. But we do not read of their inner feel-
ings, their hopes, their fears, their joys and their sorrows.
For it is only literature that can show their love of nature,
their respect for womanhood, their love of honor and their
great faith and devotion to their religion. So by reading
the best literature our own ideals and morals are often
raised and we, with our advantages, are inspired to live up
to the standards which guided our ancestors.
The English work has been managed by Misses Barr,
Masten and Miss Davis who succeeded Mr. Weltmer in the
work. They have most thoroughly directed the work and
have given careful attention to both the text book and the
outside reading. In fact one of the interesting parts of the
work is the original poems and short stories written by the
students. Many good stories and poems were received and
some of the best have been printed.
The Seniors in their work this year have studied
"Beowulf," Chaucer's "Prologue," "The Jews of Malta"
Milton's "Minor Poems," Shakespeare's "Macbeth,"
Burn's "Poems," Carlyles "Essay on Burns and Tennyson's
"Idylls of the King."
"As You Like It," Franklin's "Autobiography,"
Emerson's "Essays" and "Old Testament Narratives" have
been taken up by the Juniors. They have also studied
Longfellow, Whittier, Holmes, Poe, Irving and other
For the Sophomores "Silas Marner," ','The Ancient
Mariner," "The Lady of The Lake," "Essays of Eliot" and
"Julius Caesar" have been selected.
The Freshmen have read "Ivanhoe," "The Gold
Bug," "Midsummer Night's Dream," and "Tales of a
So it is that looking back over the four years work in
English we realize the true value of Literature and can
agree with Carlyle that "Literature is the tho't of thinking
The Seniors are now working on their play entitled
"The Hoodoo" which gives promise of being the best ever

THE SENIGR CLASS PLAY
Did Class Seventeen present a play?
Well, that they did, I want to say,
And they did it in such a clever way,
The like won't be seen for many a day.
"The Hoodoo" was the play they chose
And four and twenty stars arose.
It was a sunny autumn day
At Mrs. Shine's-a party gay.
Brighton Early and Miss Amy Lee,
The bridal pair were soon to be.
And Miss Ruffles, maid-of-honor, fair
Loved Mr. Jackson, the heartbreaker rare.
Rare did I say? Well he was rare
He broke two hearts and didn't care.
Mrs. Clinger and Gwendolyn Shine the two:
The latter, he did not even woo.
ggi, A V.
He tried to fiirt with the angel child,
But she informed him not to get wild:
And he also liked Lulu, the maid,
For whose kisses he so dearly paid.
Miss Longnecker, to the bridal pair
Said she hoped her gift came unimpaired.
And Dodo de Graft with some letters came
By which she hoped Mr. Early to shame
Professor Spiggot brought with him,
In a little box, the scarab pin.
Hemachus, his son with him came
And Lulu thought he was very tame.
Mr. Meek, Mrs. Shine's father so old
Was told to take tonic, or else he'd take c
He was the first to discover the fact
Of Mr. Dun with his burglarious act.
A cowboy too, Mr. .lack Jefferson
Whom Dodo de Graft, as her lover
Aunt Paradise of this did tell
It pleased the company, very well.
And at the last Mrs. Spiggot came
Professor Spiggot to reclaim.
She brought with her six children too
The situation so serious grew.
But at last the dear scarab, which trouble did brew,
Lay safe in the ground and everyone knew,
That the trouble was ended, the wedding bells rang,
old. "The Hoodoo" was over, the curtains went clang
THE LAST HOUR
It's during the last hour of the evening,
A look comes on our face that is sour,
For that's the hour in our day's circulation,
That is known as the English hour.
We hear in the study hall close by us,
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door being opened,
A voice that is soft and sweet.
ln my view I see from the stairway,
Crossing the broad hall so fair,
Grave Louisegnot laughing Louise
But Louise with a stately air.
We take our position in the class,
To await the coming storm.
At the buzzing heard coming from us,
She gives us a sort of scorn.
A sudden rush from the study hall,
A sudden raid thro' the hall,
And she enters this very room,
Right in the midst of us all.
She does nothing 'but look upon us,
Not a sound from her lip does pass,
But that look-yes, we are guilty-
We were talking in English class.
We often feel gay and happy,
Till by her we are hypnotized, so
She tells us, altho we are Juniors,
There is lots in life we don't know.
Emerson, Lowell, Bryant,
Longfellow, and exams,
Poe, Lincoln and Webster
Into our heads she crams.
Here we sit for the hour and lis'en,
And she tells us of them all,
Of course she thinks we love them,
Big men, good men, great and small
Do you think, O grave eyed Louise,
While we're listening to you here,
That we love these dry old men
That you hold so very dear?
But we'll ne'er forget your teachings,
Nor shall they ere depart,
For we've locked them in the dungeon,
In the round-tower of our heart.
And there they will stay forever,
Yes, forever and a day, .
And feel for other poor Juniors
Who will journey this same old way.
Come let us boost for N. H. S.
The best school in the world.
We'll sing a song of triumph, when
Her banner is unfurled.
She leads in all good sports and games
She's far ahead the rest.
And when these days of toil are o'er
We'll say they are the best.
So let us boost for N. H. S.
At all times of the year.
For to that life that's yet to come
These days are very dear.
E. CATON PANNELL.
PARODY ON "A PRAYER IN THE PROSPECT OF DEATH"
O Thou unseen, Almighty One
Who knows our every need.
Who judges in your courts above
The motive, not the deed.
Help me, I pray, to walk in the light,
The straight and narrow way
And may my walking in the right
Help someone who may stray.
And, when my course of life is run,
No other wish I ask
Than Thou shalt say, "you did your best
In each and every task,"

loyal Norma McFadden vice-president, faithful Hazel Hill

ciety has given and the talent that is displayed everyone en-
joys attending the meetings. On October 4, 1916, the D.
F. F.'s gave a reception to the D. F. F.'s to-be which was
enjoyed very much by the girls. After the program, punch
and wafers were served.
Our dramatic talent was shown in the play: "Mrs,
Pipp's Waterloo," which was given at a joint meeting of
the Dux Femina Facti Society and the Homeric Literary
The Senior's "Twenty Years From Now," was very
clever indeed and if all the things happen that were fore-
told, some of the girls have unusual experiences in store for
The Juniors gave, "The Junior Girls Minstrelsf'
Nothing like thishad ever been given, therefore it goes
without saying that it was unique and was greatly enjoyed.
The Sophomores gave most creditably "The Ladies
of Cranford." This was without doubt one of the most in-
teresting programs given this year. Great talent was shown
and also a promise for good programs next year.
The Freshmen showed their wisdom by giving a So-
cial Hour, where they served us lemonade and cake and
entertained us with lively games.
Fifth.-There has been one source of fun'for every

Foremost among the various advantages offered to
the boys of the Nevada High School stands the Homeric
Literary Society. This Society was organized in the year
1915, and the work so successfully carried on last year has
been continued with even greater success this year.
The opening session of 1916-17 was held in the Study
Hall on the twenty-first of September for the purpose or
electing oiiicers. Two changes have occurred since this
meeting. We were obliged to release our most able critic,
Mr. Cramer, his other duties becoming very heavy. Miss
Coons was choosen as his successor and we appreciate the
help she has given us. Also our first secretary, Homer
Martin resigned and his place was filled by George Cor-
This Society realizes that the development of the
mind, together with readiness and fluency of speech, is the
result of investigation and free discussion of current topics.
So, at its meetings, programs are presented which contain
debates, music and orations, sometimes a humorous paper.
Many good programs of this kind have been given at the
Among the members of this Society are Dewey Palm-
er and Edgar Crigler, who composed the High School De-
bating Squad and we are very proud of their talent. The

Especially interesting programs have been rendered
at the open sessions. The High School body enioyed a
program on March the first. in the form of a Negro 'Win-

by Jacob Summers. Also the performance of Professor De
St. Clair fLester Morrisl and his Honk Honk Hand Organ
was very clever.
The annual mock trial was given on February the
second. This year, for the first time, the members ofthe
D. F. F. Society took part in the trial. Some of our suf-
fragetts only wished that it was real life.
Then too, the annual joint session of the D. F. F.

DEBATING CLUB a
A few weeks after school opened last fall, about
twenty boys interested in debate work met under the direc-
tion of Mr. Cramer and organized a Debating Club. We
became a member of the Missouri High School Debating
League and immediately began to prepare for our winter's
On December 4th' the preleininary debate was held
and Edgar Crigler and Dewey Palmer were chosen as our
The question chosen by the State League was "Re-
solved That the Federal Government Should Own and
and Operate the Railroads of the United States."
On December 15 our representatives went to Butler
where that night they met the H. S. debating team of that
city. Although the decision of the judges was in favor of
Butler, everybody agreed that our team acquitted them-
selves very creditably.
Next year we intend to start work early and we are
contidently expecting to put a team in the field that will
win a place in the League.
THE COMET 65
Recognizing the value of'music in the education of
High School pupils, the School Board endeavored to give
them better advantages this year than in previous years. As
an instructor Miss Adeline Caldwell was secured.
ln order that each pupil might take music, one day
in each week was set aside for practice. On this day music
was given each period so that the pupils might take it when
Then both a boy's and girl's Glee Club were organ-
ized which had their particular times for practice after

In addition to the Glee Clubs an orchestra was or-
ganized. This orchestra furnished music at some of the as-
semblies and also on the nights the Senior play was given.
The Seniors are at present practicing their Com-
mencement music under the direction of Miss Caldwell and
with Miss Helen Lee McGregor as pianist.
Let us hope that this year's efforts may lead to even
better advantages in music next year.

The members of the Nevada High School certainly
have appreciated the different numbers of papers, maga-
zines, annuals, etc., that have been sent to them this year
from various schools throughout the country. They con-
tain much interesting and valuable material and have been
placed in the library for the use of the students.
We will examine some of these exchanges.
The Freshman of the Tonkawa High School, Ton-
kawa, Oklahoma, have published a paper about the Fresh-
man class. It is an excellent publication and contains a
fine account of their school life.
.., .-A 1.-
The University Missourian and its annual, The Savi-
tar, maintain their usual high standard of excellence.
The Rollamo is welcome among our exchanges, for
it deals with such interesting things in school life and work.
Another annual we would miss greatly were it to be
discontinued is the Drury Mirror.
The University Daily Kansan is a good school paper
with much good material.
A school paper of great interest is the Rich Hill an-
nual, The Gimlet.

The Carthage annual is hard to beat and contains a
splendid account of school life.

The Class of '18 is an exceptionally bright one. It
has introduced many new things into the High School.
Among these, and probably the best, was the Junior and
Senior banquet given on the 27th of April A. D. 1917.
By the kindness of Professor Barbee the High School
building was turned over to us as a place for this entertain-
ment. Junior and Senior pennants were displayed in con-
spicuous places in the upper and lower halls. Rugs were
placed on the floor of the halls and settees and chairs in the
cloak rooms, as well as in the halls.
During the middle of the evening if one-had .slipped
around he would have found girls and boys in these cosy
corners, engaged in animated conversation. But as the
hour of nine drew near conversation was not so. animated,
and many furtive glances were cast toward, the west stair-
way. You wonder why? Well, the banquet was to be
served in the upper hall and these boys and girls thought it
was about time for this interesting event to take place. - .
The committee on arrangements saw fit to choose
Jacob Summers as toastmaster, and the following program
of toasts was responded to:
Our Guests the Seniors, Mr. Raymond Osborne.
L A Our Hosts the Juniors, Mr. Homer Martin.
Our High School, Mr. Caton Pannell.
Our Happy Faculty, Miss Sophia Berghauser.
Ideals, Mr. W. F. Cramer.

- Reminiscences, Miss Harriet Hillias.
Our Next Year's Seniors, Mr. Wallace Myers.
The U. S. A., .Miss Mec-Ryan Moss.
Graduated and Then-, Mr. F. H. Barbee.
Each one responded' to his toast in a creditable man-
ner, and at a late hour all went home merrily, having
thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

A BOYS BASKET BALL GAME
Experiment No. 21.
Object:-To promote co-operation, self confidence,
unselfishness, quick thinking and good health. Q
Apparatus:-A basket ball, slick floor, a referee with
a good whistle, a pair of good shoes, and almost nothing
Proceedure:-Go on the court with a determination
to win. Meet your opponent, learn his name and shake
hands, then get back to your place behind your center.
Watch the signal, and wade thru the opponents line leav-
ing them bewildered and breathless at your speed and
agility. Pass the ball to your best shooter and make two
points. Continue for twenty minutes, the same process.
In case the ball is held by two men 'under your own
basket get your best jumper and slap the ball in for two
more points. If the ball is held at the other end of the
court, hit it so hard that it will go the length of the court
to your own-forward and score two more.
When the whistle blows it is time to stop, and is best
to do so. If your opponent fights there are always two
things to do, take your choice. Show your man that you
are not as easily tripped as he is, or that you are twice as
fast. At the end of the first half it is time to rest. Take
advantage of it and go out the second half and repeat the
operations as in the first half.
Results:-The game was finished with two skinned
knees per man, one "charley horse" below the knee, a
sprained ankle, ten tired men, five of them disappointed
and hearty congratulations.
Conclusions:-The experiment was found to be good
for every cause for which it was tried. It is a clean sport
and is well worth while for every young man that is physi-
cally able to stand the hard knocks and strains. They tend
to fit him for the knocks he will meet in the future.

The boys gymnasium work began this year about the
middle of September, under the direction of Mr. Horace
Weltmer.f Much of the time was given to basket ball prac-
tice, because an entirely new team had to be chosen and
the material to select from looked "pretty poor" at first,
Howeverateam was selected after a few weeks of hard
work thatihas fought like tigers in the defense of our Crim-
son and Grey and altho we have lost the majority ofthe
games this year, we have made good head-way for next
After prospects began to brighten for the team, we
began calesthentic work. In this we had all kinds of exer-
cises and running and wrestling. Mr. Weltmer is an expert
wrestler, having won the championship at the University of
Missouri and defeated several good men from other states.
We feel lucky in having him for our coach.
The girls "gym" began just four weeks later and was
conducted by Miss Helen L. McGregor also a graduate of
M. U. Her work as coach of the girl team the last two
years deserves much credit. She has selected the teams and
directed them so well that they have lost only one game in
We have had a good time on all our trips and were
treated fine by all. At Butler we put up at a fine hotel and
got to see the High School and other places of interest. At
school they had chapel and we got to hear the graduates of
their school who had been away to M. U. and other
schools. We had assembly here that morning but had to
go just as our graduates began their speeches.
At Sedalia the boys enjoyed .themselves probably
more than at any place this winter. They took a swim in
the Y. M. C. A. and said it was the best they ever had.
At Carthage we were given a reception at the home
of Miss Lang, a member of the C. H. S. faculty, and they
showed us a line time. This was the last game of the sea-
son and most of us were glad the season was over.
After the High School games were out of the way
the class games were played. The first was between the
Freshmen and Sophomores. It was better than looked for
and a little rough. The Freshmen boys and Sophomore

girlswere winners. The second game was between the
Juniors and Seniors and was as interesting and as rough as
the first. The Junior boys and Senior girls were winners of
this game. The final game was played for championship
the next day in the Armory hall. Each team put up a stiff
struggle for the cup but only two could get it. These
were the JUNIOR BOYS and SENIOR GIRLS.

up base ball. So far there have been no games matched
between schools, but the classes have selected their teams
and are ready to play for championship. There will be no
track work this year altho we believe we could show any
High School some good material, The tennis club will be
re-organized and games started.

VICE-PRESIDENT VISITS HIGH SCHOOL
One of the greatest days ot the year for many of the
Nevada High School pupils was October thirteenth, when
Vice President Thomas R. Marshall visited us. A platform
was built on the H. S. Campus, and Cottey College and
the grade pupils were invited over.
All of the school children of Nevada greeted our
honored guest with the stars and stripes as he marched up-
on the platform.
Mr. Marshall did not speak long but told us some
things that we shall never forget. One of the thoughts was
especially forceful since it came from the Vice President.
He said that manual labor should be dignified by our
schools: that the day is past when a man's character is
judged by the whitness of his hands: and that it is more
honorable to earn fifteen dollars a week in a machine shop,
than to earn three dollars a week in a dry goods store.
The program ended with the song "America" sung
by all present. We went away feeling greatly honored by
having had such a distinguished guest.

The Editors and Reporters have labored hard to

A school is advanced when it advances in the eyes of
the students and public. If this annual does this we shall
feel fully repaid for our time and work.
92 THE COMET
The evening was very pleasant. Soft breezes from
the ocean murmured thru the trees. The sun just passing
from sight cast a red and purple glory across the sky. It
was one of those beautiful evenings that seem to give
mortals a glimpse of Heaven.
On the bluff overlooking the bay a small cottage
nestled among the trees. On the porch an old couple was
sitting. apparently to enjoy the evening. But a look in
their faces revealed the fact that despite the pleasant sur-
roundings they were sad. The old lady held a letter in her
hand, the contents of which had caused their troubled ex-
pressions. It was an invitation from their grand-daughter
back in Nevada, Missouri, to attend Commencement exer-
cises. "Ohl how I should love to go!" said the old lady.
"If we could only see Marie graduate! Do you think we
could go, father?"
"There is nothing I would enjoy more, but from
California to Nevada, Missouri, is a long journey and we
are not young anymore. .lust to think that Marie is our
youngest grand-child and she about to graduate from High
School. How time flies!"
"If we could only go back," said the grandmother.
"Do you remember our Commencement at the High
School, father? How I should like to see the old school
again. How long has it been, since we graduated?"
"Forty-eight years. This is 1965. I, too, would like
to see the old school again but it would be a long journey."
They were quiet' for awhile, then the grandfather
arose and went into the house.
"Do you know where our old 1917 High School An-
nual is, wife? I want to look thru it again."
The wife found it in a drawer with other old books
together they turned the yellowed pages that brought back
many memories. The pictures, the histories of the differ-
ent classes, the poems and the stories each received its share
of their attention. Everything was gone over. They
laughed often as this or that amusing incident was recalled
but when they had finished it wa: quite late and there were
tears in their eyes.
"I never knew until now, what the old Comet meant
to us, mother. I wouldn't take anything for it."
"I have read it before," said his wife, "but never
until now have I loved it so much. I want to go back
more than ever now."
"Well, suppose we do. Traveling now-a-days is so
easy and we are both well, if we are getting a little old.
Older people than we are make longer journeys than that."
And so they fell to planning happily.
"What shall we give Marie for a graduation pres-
ent?" asked the grandmother.
"Why, a Comet, " said the grandfather quickly.
Every graduate should have one. Some day it may be as
dear to her as ours is to us.
To the business men of Nevada who have contributed
to the support of this Annual, We express our gratitude. We
also hope that they will be liberally repaid by the Comet
Adsg and we believe that the High School will support any-
thing these men propose for the betterment of Nevada.

looses his spark plug. Nearby he sees a portable
camp-house and after knocking and being admitted is
invited to spend the night with a Highland chief.
The next morning the Highlander took James
to the end of his domain. Near the appointed place
James made a wish, a wish to see some chief's men.
"Have then thy wish." The horn blew shrill and he
was answered from the hill. Instant, from copse and
heath arose, Krupp guns, Springfield rifies and
Trenches in rows. "For Saxon I am Roderiek Dhu."
James fearlessly said, "Come one, shoot allg

Then spoke Roderick, "This is Coilartogle

They sprang to and after a fierce struggle James
won. Then hearing the whiss of motor wings he
looked up and saw his airplane guard. "Come down
