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 medal. 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, NEVER! " FAYE JOHANNES. 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 middy suits! 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 the piano. 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. HARRIET HILLIAS. THE COMET 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 THE .IUNIORS 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 THE COMET 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. E.

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 School- 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. Your friend, JACOB SUMMERS, 'I8. THE COMET 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. SUSIE EARHARDT THE COMET 37 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. CLASS REPORT 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 XS 'l'llI?

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. .IEANNETTE KIMBERLIN.

FRESHMAN DIARY 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 Nixon. 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 but we realize that their training this year may help them to be winners in the future. Jan. 17-The Comet oflicers are to be elected tomor- row. We chose our candidates today. We chose Halbert Earp for Exchange Editor and Paul Dygard for Staii Artist. Jan. 19-We got the election returns this morning. What do you think? The Freshman's Exchange Editor was elected. Feb. 2-The basket ball interest is growing so we knew we would need some colors. We chose them today. Purple and white will be carried out in our penants during the next three years. Feb. 8-A basket ball game with Franklin was played yesterday evening. Our team won a glorious victory. We have some team too! One that promises fine material for the next three years. Feb. 27-Had a class meeting today. The Vice President presided. This meeting was to decide on our Comet pictures. Besides our group pictures of the class we shall have the pictures of our otlicers on a separate page.

Freshman and Sophomores play this afternoon. Hope the Freshman will win! March 8-Our girls lost yesterday, but our boys won. We have a chance to play in the finals. If only we can do as well then. March 10-Finals played yesterday. It's sad but true. We lost. Nevertheless we are proud of the plucky game our team put up. It was about the grittiest game ever played. April 19-A Goodbye, old Diary, I haven't time to write in you any more. Our Freshman year is almost over and so endeth our first chapter. We have three more chapters of the High School Book before us. May each be as interesting to us and as beneficial as this first, for though in this chapter we have gotten some hard knocks, which are the special privelege of the Freshmen, they may serve to make us stronger and better students for the much harder knocks to come.

Ig American Historyl 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 ETSEW Kiwi 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 writers. 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 American writers. 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 Wayside Inn." 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 souls." The Seniors are now working on their play entitled "The Hoodoo" which gives promise of being the best ever presented so far. HAZEL FARLEY.

"The Hoodoo" was over, the curtains went clang 51 C THE COMET 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. CECIL KNODERER THE COMET 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 BOOST 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.

"If there are no corrections the minu- tes will stand approved as read. Is there any business to come before the house? If not the secretary will read the program." Hazel. The first numberhis a piano solo "Oh! Who Can Equal Us." The pianist receives such enthusiastic applause. that the house has to be called to order. Secretary. The next number is a reading "The Finest Ever." After repeated applause an encore is given entitled "Climbing," Secretary. The third numberis a debate "Resolved That The D. F. F. is Steadily Improving." The judges' decision was given unanimously for the affirmative. Secretary. The next number is a paper "Why the D. F. F. Has Had Such a Successful Year." This paper ably set forth the following reasons for our success: First-We showed our wisdom in selecting Miss Anna Clack as Critic, efficient Judith Gilbert as president, loyal Norma McFadden vice-president, faithful Hazel Hill for secretary and honest Eleanore Hughes for treasurer. Second-The D. F. F. Society has enrolled one hundred per cent of the Senior, Junior and Sophomore girls and a large per cent of the Freshman girls. This rec- ord has never before been made in the history of the Society. Third-Besides having a large number of girls, every- one helps, and where there is co-operation like this, some- thing is sure to happen. - ' Fourth-Because of the interesting programs the So- 'lt ll Ii C O M li 'I' 57 58 THE COMET 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 Society. 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 them. ' 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 meeting and that is The Chatterbox. Too much cannot be said in praise of our paper. "Variety is the Spice of Life," and The Chatterbox has furnished both variety and spice. This paper called forth enthusiastic applause. Secretary. The next number is a paper "Advice to the Prospective D. F. F.'s", The main thot of this num- ber was "Go Thou and Do Likewise." Secretary. The last number is a vocal solo "We Lead, While Others Follows." President rising. "I feel sure that the Society joins me in expressing our pleasure and appreciation of the pro- gram just renderedf' The Society is adjourned to meet again in September 1917.

Gold and Black M otto-"F riih abt sich, was ein Meister' werden will" 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- mack. 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 regular meetings. 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 winner of the Gold Medal Contest is also a member of this Society. 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- strel. A negro speech was delivered in a very realisti: way 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. and Homeric Socieries was given. A short play entitled "Mrs. Pipp's Waterloo" was successfully given by the fol- lowing caste: Mrs. Pipp ...,..... ......... . . .......... ........ ,.....

For this reason the Gold Medal Declamatory Contest has been established in the High School. The Annual Gold Medal Contest attracted unusual attention this year as there were so many able contestants. In the girl's preliminaries Leona Bacon, Donna Dail, Arla Gayl Poland and Corinthia Gilbert were chosen. The boys chosen were Jacob Summers, Wallace Myers, Carl Reed and George Cormack.

EDGAR CRIGLER DEWEY PALM:-:R 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 work. b On December 4th' the preleininary debate was held and Edgar Crigler and Dewey Palmer were chosen as our representatives. 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 'TMUSTC I 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 most convenient. Then both a boy's and girl's Glee Club were organ- ized which had their particular times for practice after school hours. ln the programs given by the schools this - spring the High School music was represented by the Girl's Glee Club. 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. H F 66 IHE COMI I STUDY HA Ll THE COMET 67 ii 'V j . C J 1. 'ig Pl .li :zen-qc-Q 1-' self tts.

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.

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. The Girls, Mr. Carl Reed.

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 JACOB SUMMERS '18 COME 80 THE COMET 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 else. 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.

Horace VVeltmcr Middle Row: Summers, Chatman, Polland, Cox, Bunker Front Row: Mcfford, Turnbull 82 THE COMET ATHLETIC REPORT 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 year. 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 two years. 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 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. The line up of the First High School teams were as follows: GIRLS FORWARDS GUARDS Hazel Farley, Captain Nellie Dickson Margerette Levens Meryle .Rector Owen CENTERS SUBS Betty Atherton Ruby Dickson Lucile Thorpe Mildred Scott Margerie Dail BOYS FORNVARDS GUARDS ' Harold Poland, Captain Lawrence Chatman, R King Turnbull, L Frank Mefford, L CENTER Lester L.

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. LESTER L. COX, N. H. S.

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. 88 l DOMESTIC SCIENCE 'HE COMET THE COMET MANUAL TRAINING DEPARTMENT 90 'I' H E C O M E 'I' ' OUR PARK-RADIO SPRINGS PARK ESSAY CONTEST WINNERS RUTH MITCHEM JUDITH GlI,BER'I' WEBSTER IlAl,l,IC'lx THE COMET EDITORIAL We are through.

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 MEMORIES 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. L. M. 'IEE 1 fx F 1 i 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.

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 this rock shall fly from this hillside as soon as I." Then spoke Roderick, "This is Coilartogle Ford, and you must save your life with your sword."
