ITNUMINIIIIU I IMI!! I
I THE COMET
In this small volume the staf has tried to enumerate
the many joyous events of the year 1920-1921.
Perhaps it will mean most to that small group
whose work in this Dear Old School is done, and while
they have looked forward to their departure with high
anticipations it will be with deep regret. that they leave
the N. H. S.
To another larger group who through the mist of
another year or so of study may realize that this event
of events is fast approaching, we extend 'the wish that
they will likewise appreciate the good times they are
But we sincerely hope that this Annual may be a joy
to all our readers, and that in the future when the
time worn pages are re-read, the many pleasant memo-
ries of our high schoclhdays and friendships may he
renewed to all of' us. D

Senior Class History
If Father Time should offer us one great power that of re-
living the most pleasant times, we would choose this, our career
in dear old N. H. S. VVhen we assembled ninety-eight strong we
chose Green and White as the colors to live and fight for in order
that we might be Freshmen in the true sense. From the very
first we began our High School life in earnest taking an active
part in everything, whether it be social, industrial or athletic.
This active life was continued through our Sophomore and
Junior terms and though our number diminished our knowledge
and power was constantly increasing until it was a joy to be a
member of the Class '21.
But best of all has been our Senior year.
We have already established a reputation for always having

good officers, and we more than lived up to it when on Septem-
ber 14 we elected Lynn Ewing, presidentg Fred Snider, vice-
president, Amy Taylor, secretary, and Audrey Kirkpatrick,
treasurer. When we asked Miss Rutherford to turn Senior and
join our ranks she consented.
Then the jolly times began. First there was a contest be-
tween the classes selling tickets for the lyceum course, we sold
all we could and then sold some more and oh the joy of receiving
that green and white banner, with the holiday and the movies
for good measure.
But poor health claimed Miss Rutherford and removed her
from our ranks leaving us hoping and hoping for her return, but
all in vain. But "Every cloud has a silver lining" and it takes
the Senior class to turn clouds wrong side out. We did this by
unanimously electing Mrs. Symns to be our sponsor. And was
there ever a leader that held her torch quite so high or made the
rough spots quite so smooth as Mrs. Symns has done? And the
Seniors are both proud and thankful.
Some folks say that Seniors are always dignified, but re-
member that kid party November tenth? Let's see, there were
balloons, dolls, taffy, all day suckers, speeches-and best of all,
a real Tom Thumb wedding!
We had some real talent in our class, and as December
ninth drew near there was much speculation as to who of the
eight Seniors who had won places in the finals in the oratorical
contest would be wearing a medal. It was happily settled that
night when Don Sheets and Leta Holliway proudly bore away
the beautiful gold medals.
Feeling that we were indeed fortunate, it was with genuine
joy that each member of the class bought and sold Christmas
seals. For selling more than any other class We were given a
quarter day holiday.
Some folks think that we don't learn anything on holidays,
and they are rare things. But they should have been to the best
Track Meet ever, on April eighth. ,We learned what a won-
derful track team we really had, and better still, we proved it to
the other classes by winning both cups. We have won the inter-
class relay ever since track was started in our Sophomore year,
this making the third time that we have won the relay cup.
Lastly, we learned how to manage a scorecard perfectly. -
But in the meantime our social life had not been neglected,
and on March seventeenth we again met together. Joy ruled

supreme in the halls that seemed to be transformed to a garden
of Shamrocks for the occasion. And here the faculty potato
race, the Irish jokes and other fun took place, with the grand
and glorious Eats following.
But all our time has not-been spent in track meets, parties,
etc. Some of us have been burning midnight oil as was
evidenced by the announcement of the hononiroll-Lynn Ewing,
valedictoriang Martha Waller, salutatoriang Laura Current,
Rhoda Elder, Leta Holliway, Eleanor James, Dorothy Saunders
and Amy Taylor, honor students. All were called forth to be
proudly viewed by the student body.
But Father Time doesn't grant favors Knot even to Seniors!
and these are onlylpleasant memories now, but nothing can de-
prive us of our memories and-

Mingling fast our locks with grey,

After a busy summer filled with work as well as play, the
Juniors came back ready to begin the third year of their short
student life. These Juniors are full of pep, enthusiasm, gen-

erosity, honesty, and are the life of the High School. As a mere
matter of fact, they are mentally slow but sure, nevertheless,
aside from a few minor deficiencies such as a great liking for
gum, writing notes and throwing paper wads surreptitiously,
they areas nearly perfect as it is possible for a band of fun-
loving high school students to be.
This third year has been a busy one for them. In athletics
their name headsthe list. The baseball team won a beautiful
cup, of which they are duly proud. In basketball, the Junior
teams did likewise and left the field triumphant over the van-
quished foes, thus adding to the halo of glory which hovers about
their name and showering upon themselves the laurel wreaths of
victory, won fairly and squarely.
The Juniors were very sorry to learn that hay rides were
excluded from the list of desirable class functions, owing to
drivers objections to the great amount of sentimentality ex-
hibited on such occasions. fWith apology to Miss Anna.J This
class decided to make the best of things, so, accordingly, one
Friday evening, September 24th, they enjoyed a most felicitous
picnic at the "Lake," That was so successful that they next
decided to have a masquerade party October 22nd, Those who
missed it-well, they've decided to go next time!
' The Class of '22 owes its great success to the fact that it
started right by its sagacious choice of officers, who are as fol-
lows: - Q
Philip Harrel, President. . Carl Porter, Vice President.
Lelah Blair, Secretary. ' Pearl Oglevie, Treasurer.
Miss Frances Moore, Sponsor.
To Miss Moore,.and the various other teachers, the Juniors
are irreparably indebted for their invaluable aid and assistance
along the lthorny?J path of High School life.
The Class of '22 has ever kept before it the banner of high
ideals and noble aims and is steadily following it to the summit
of the mountain called "Ambition" So far their record is'un-
stained. May they always keep it so.

Write up our class report did you say? Yes, we must or the
"Comet" will be found wanting. But in view of the fact that we
are one hundred and fifty strong, we cannot mention individuals
or the report would look more like a few pages of thecity direc-
tory than a part of our "Comet" Neither can we mention inci-
dents in our glorious career because the "hard-boiled" editor
will not allow us enough space. So as the old toast goes, "Here's
to everybody and all the good times we've had together."
Just a little over a year ago, we wandered into the school
yard, "Freshies" were we. We thought the "Keep Off the
Grass" signs were billboards, the High School Building seemed
larger than the Pacific Ocean. But how times do change! The
old school house, once so large and formal, is to us a home.
Within its walls We have formed habits, we have made friend-
ships. Isn't it a grand old building?
In the fall of 1920 back we came, fresh from our vacation
but "Freshies" no longer. "Sophs"-that's the word. And
what memories of our good times it brings!
First, we followed our time-honored custom of a Class Party.
This at the High School Building. It is not necessary to tell of
the games we played-you all remember. It was a joyful affair.
Why shouldn't it be? For the "Sophs" of 1920-21 are a jolly
St. Valentine's day will come even in Presidential Inaugura-
tion year. "And, oh, what a Valentine party those "Sophs" did
have!" We came in gangs, bunches, and by two's. Each of the
girls carried a mysterious box, gayly decorated, which was a
forecast of her career as a culinary artist, or as we would say in
simple language, these were the Heats." And how the boys did
bid when the boxes were auctioned. Millionaires, every one of
them. And why not-didn't we cook the Heats? ?"
Our real battle came when we sold tickets for the Senior
Class Play. We won in the contest between the classes and if
there's any doubt, we have a pennant to back us up. No, we are
not bragging, we just worked hard and hustled. Perhaps it's a
good lesson to us and twenty years from now we'll still be
hustlers and have a string of pennants. Just watch us!
It would ill become us to leave this page Without acknow-
ledging our obligations to our dear sponsor, Miss Starr. What
better can be said than that one hundred and fifty voices speak
as one and say, "Miss Starr, you're one of us!"
We've had our ups and downs, just as we shall always have.
Some of us have been discouraged at times, all of us have been
disciplined, but why write about it? It's ancient history, now.
The bitter always goes with the sweet. Yesterday lies buried,

"I've been waiting to have this cozy hour, all by myself, for
a long time, for I've just been longing to look at my dear old

hundred and thirty-five in our class, and what a set of Freshmen
I think I never shall forget our first class meeting. We
selected our colors, purple and white, and how we loved them!
We elected Miss Fisher as our sponsor, Bruce Stonum, presidentg
Margaret Bennett, vice-presidentg Grover Moss, treasurer, and
Loraine Stonum, secretary. .
We certainly did have a time keeping a president, though.
After Bruce had been with us for several months, he decided to
leave us and go to an aviation school in California. We hated
it, too, for Bruce was a fine president and we didn't want to lose
him. When he left us, nominations for president ,were again
made, and Maurice Vincent received the majority of votes. He
evidently did not like us very well, for he soon left us. James
Tarr proved to be his successor, and-though coming in late, he
did his part, as leader, well.
And here are our basket ball people! They surely were
two fine teams. We worked terribly hard on the, class games,
but our boys were rather out-classed bythe Seniors, and our
girls, though they played a good, hard, clean game, were not
able to withstand the Seniors. However, both teams 'made
splendid material for the successive years.
Oh! I had almost forgotten our Literary Society. We did
live up to our name, which was P. E. P. or, in other words, Prol
gressive Energetic Pupils. I think we were rather proud of our-
selves, and we had good causeto be, for we were the founders
of something entirely new. Why yes, it was the first year that
the Freshmen of N. H. S. had ever had a Literary Society of their
We Freshmen worked hard, but we believe in that old say-
ing, "All Work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." So our class
parties provided several hours of "honest-to-goodness" fun and
good times. -
Q Oh! We Freshmen were all right! By being so studious,
willing to do the right thing and having pep for our middle name
we produced some fine men and women, who have won fame
from the four corners of this big, wide world."

This year above all others in the history of the High School
has been one of progress in the field of Athletics. The School
Board lifted the restrictions upon athletics which was appre-
ciated by the whole High School. Our athleticstthis year have
been appreciated by the town and community, as they have
shown by the large attendance at our games. The student body
also has shown more enthusiasm and interest in this -line. Not
only was a response given to the athletics direct but also to the
play which was given by the Music Department, for the purpose
of finances for athletics. -
For this interest the High School is very grateful, and we
feel assured that the time spent in this way was not iost, but that
everybody has seen the good in it and will always respond to this
side of the High School life in the future.

Our first activity was baseball. This year only the inter-
class games were played.
The first game was between the Freshmen and Juniors,
which resulted in a victory for the J pniors.
The second was between the Sophomores and Seniors, and
was won by the former.
The decisive game, to decide the inter-class championship,
was therefore between the Sophomoresand Juniors. This was
a fast game from the first to the last inning. At no time during
the game could either class be sure of winning. After nine in-
nings of real baseball victory perched itself upon the banner of
the Juniors. --
The victors were presented with the Inter-Class Baseball

Our gymnasium work began early in the fall under the
supervision of Miss Coons and Mr. Wilkerson, two very efficient
coaches. The student body responded and some excellent work
was done in the gymnasium , also valuable training was received
which was to be a large factor in our success throughout the
The armory building had been sold, and having no other
place large enough, the gymnasium was remodeled and the
home games played there.
Our schedule for the year began November 5th. The High
School had become a member of the Mid-West Missouri Athletic
Association, and with the members of this association most of
our games were played.
At all our home games large crowds were always present to
support our teams. This is another factzr which has made the
year a success. .
Always our teams have played the cleanest, and best games
possible and have not only benefitted themselves, but have done
credit to the High School.
On all out of town games the teams have received the most
cordial welcome and hospitable entertainment. Also Whenever
it fell our turn as hosts, we have tried to entertain our visitors
so that Whether they left with victory or defeat, they would al-
ways have a pleasant recollection of the visit.
This is one of the benefits of basketball. It establishes a
better feeling of fellowship between the different communities.
We have also played several games outside of the Mid-West
Association, the most conspicious of which was with the War-
rensburg Training School. This team had not lost a game dur-

' Track work was begun before the Basket Ball season was
over, and even before the chilly days of winter had passed.
About forty boys from the various classes went out to practice.
Mr. Gibson and Mr. Wilkerson were in charge of the track work.
They were greatly assisted by Mr. Johnson, a graduate and ex-
track man from the Annapolis Naval Academy. '
Since track work is always open to so much larger a group
than any other form cf our athletics it gives boys with different
talents a chance. Track is a comparatively new form of athletics
in our High School, being started in the year of 1918-19. This
work lias become very popular with the whole High School, as
shown by the great support and enthusiasm for it.
On April 8th, the first meet of the year was held at the fair
grounds. This was the inner-class meet.
On Saturday, April 15th, was the day set for the St. Ver Dar
meet at ElDorado Springs, but because of the weather it was
postponed until May 7.
The Mid-West Missouri Track and Field Meet was held here
April 23. Nevada won second place out of the nine schools en-
tered, Eldorado winning first in the meet and relay race.
Seven track men, accompanied by Mr. Gibson and Mr. John-
son, were sent to the Southwest Missouri meet at Springfield
April 230. Although only one first place, the broad jump by
David Collins, was won, all the boys worked hard and we feel
confident that those who wcn from them had towork hard for
Mayi7th, the postponed St. Ver Dar Meet, because of bad
weather, was postponed until the Sth. ' '
May 9 the track team accompanied by a large crowd of
rooters braved the rain and mud and battled their way in every-
thing from "Sixes" to Ford trucks to the St. Ver Dar Meet at El-
Dorado Springs. In this meet we led during the first part but
when it came to the longer runs we lost out partly owing to the
hilly track and deep washed ruts. One of the most unfortunate
accidents and regretted the most was when Burness Coffman,
leading his heat of the 220 hurdles, fell and broke his arm.

The Track Team Man
The High School has been very fortunate this year in secur-
ing the voluntary services of Mr. B. T. Johnson, in the training
of the track team. Mr. Johnson has had eight years of ex-
perience on the cinder path, four years at the Virginia Military
Institute and four years at the United States Naval Academy at
Annapolis under the direction of the famous Bernie Wefers.
Mr. Johnson, through his intense interest in the sport and
his sympathetic consideration for his men, fills them with an
his sympathetic consideration for his men, fills his men with an
enthusiasm that causes them to use every ounce of their strength
in a contest. I
THE MID-WEST MISSOURI INTER-HIGH SCHOOL
. ATHLETIC LEAGUE
Owing to the important place that the Mid-West Missouri
Inter-High School Athletic League has had in our athletics this
year, the Comet would hardly be complete without at least a re-
sume of its work.
The League is an organization of the first class high schools
in six counties, namely, Bates, Barton, Henry, Cedar, St. .Clair
and Vernon. It was organized November 11, 1920, at the North
East High 'School at Kansas City, where representatives of the
schools were attending the State Teachers' Association. At this
meeting a constitution was adopted and officers were elected.
Judging from a record .of one year in basket ball and track, this
date marks the birth of one of the strongest athletic associations
in the state. . '
The League means much to athletics in the Nevada High
School. It fosters a high type of sportsmanship, it sets up a
championship with a tangible trophy to inspire mento greater
effort. Again Nevada was very fortunate to be the place
selected for the First Annual Mid-West Track and Field Meet,
which was held April 23. K Nine schools of the eleven members
of the League entered the meet. Conditions were very favorable
and the meet was a success in every respect. K
While the Nevada men did not win the- championship. in
basket ball, or first in track, they always proved themselves a
worthy adversary to their opponents. They ranked third in bas-
ket ball and second in track. '

She stretched out her wand. In an instant I found myself in the Nevada
High School Auditorium, surrounded by class-mates of the D. Society.
The Sophomore girls were giving a circus. All wild animals were there, each
part being played by a D. F. F. member. Every girl present was happy and
Many meetings of the D. F. F. passed before my eyes.
Suddenly the scene changed. I was listening to the conversation of two
great readers. One was saying, "I could never have become a reader, had it
not been for my D. F. F. work in the N. H. S. When I was called upon to give
a reading, I did not want to, but I felt that I had to if I were loyal to the
Society. After several appearances in D. F. F., I did not become
embarassed when speaking, and it has been easy for me ever since. How did
you make your start?"
"Well, I'll tell you," replied the other. "The D. F. F. Society is just
where I started. I think every girl that enters High School should become
a member of the D. F. F. Literary Society as soon as she possibly can."
And then I awoke. The little maiden was gone. I raised up and looked
for her in vain. It had been a dream. The moon was high over thetree tops,
and I had been 'dreaming for hours. I started home as quickly' as I could.
And I said to myself, "Surely, every girl that enters High School should be-
come a member of the D. F. F. -
D. F. F. Reporter.
Oh, wlfere is it that friends and fun
And studies, all together make
A life that's good for everyone,
A school that surely takes the cake?
, N. H. S.
What fills us all with pep and vim
And makes our spirits high
When crowds are rushing to the gym
And we see c-ur colors fly?
Now can you think what it could be
That to all girls brings joy, H
Where many happy moments flee
Without a single boy?
D. F. F.: , 5
So here's to our society
And to our critic dear, 5
Who's held us to propriety Q '
And helped us through the year. 5
Miss Kirkpatrick! L
Our president deserves her share
Of credit and applause, Z
For she has worked untiringly j
To promote this worthy cause. 1

"Say Jack, isn't it wonderful wl'at the P. E. P. is doing?"
"Huh! Nobody but girls belong."
"No, that's just where you're wrong. Nearly all the Freshmen boys are
members, and those who aren't wish they were."
"Well, I may join after I have a little while to think it over. What's it
if like anyway?"
"The P. E. P.-Progressive Energetic Pupils---the first Freshman Lit-
erary Society in the history of the Nevada High School--was organized in
January, 1921, for the purpose of preparing Freshmen to enter the D. F. F.
and Homeric Societies when they become Sophomires.
The first meeting was held January 5th when the following officers were
elected: President, Paul Stonumg vice-president, Ted Gamble, secretary
Marjorie Brahamg treasurer, Margaret Bennett.
The enrollment was sixty, and twenty-seven have joined since, making
a total of eighty-seven. This shows the P. E. P. is living up to its name and
is making itself worth while.
The meetings are all interesting and entertaining. The programs are
composed of orations, current events, debates, readings and musical numbers,
both instrumental and vocal. The talent and willingness of the members are
remarkable. We are never bored because the program committee always has
some new idea to present.
Now, don't you want to become one of the Progressive Energetic Pupils
of N. H. S.?" LEROY SHONE,

D. F. F. Report
One beautiful evening in September, after a long sultry day, I walked
along the bank of White River, to see the sun as it sank down in the west.
The Ozarks looked more beautiful, that evening, than ever I had seen them.
And the sun, reflecting in the waters, made a beautiful picture indeed.
On the soft cool moss, under a large Oak tree, I sat down and throwing
away all trouble and care, mused upon the past.
While I was thus engaged, a happy little maiden, dressed in a snow-
white robe, and carrying a wand, came dancing along and sat down beside me.
She fixed her bright blue eyes upon me and said, in a voice that sounded like
the sweetest music, "I am the spirit of school-days, your wonderful school-
days spent in N. H. S. I have something to show you.

sing-at least a little bit."
F. G.: "I just lc-ve mu:-ic: But tell me more about it, what do you do?"
S. G.: "Well, at the beginning of school we elected officers and Misa
Crum for our critic, so we would have lots of "pep," for it takes "pep".to

prcgrams at our meetings." Q '
F. G.: "Is that all you do?"
S. G.: HALL? I should say not!" "At the beginning of the year, helped
by some of the boy singers, we gave a big Minstrel Show for the athletic
benefit." ' I

STOCK JUDGING TEAM
THOMAS McFARLAND ALPHA SHAW STANLEY PALMER
FLOYD GERARD FRED SNIDER
Early in September Mr. Wilkerson, head of the agriculture department
received a letter from the President of the Ozark Live Stock Association re-
questing that the Nevada High School send a team of five members to the
Ozark Live Stock Show to be held at Springheld, Missouri, September 28,
By preliminary tests the following boys were chosen to represent the
Nevada High School: Floyd Gerard, Fred Snyder, Stanley Palmer, Alpha
Shaw and Thomas McFarland.
Two weeks were then spent in coaching the team in stock judging.
Under the supervision of Mr. McRuer and Mr. Wilkerson the team improved
rapidly. Various parts of Vernon County were visited in the search for live
stock best suited for the purpose of judging.
On September 27 the team went to Springfield.
The contest began at eleven a. m. the next day. One thousand head of
pure bred animals were exhibited. Nine schools were represented in the
judging contest. After the judging was over the contestants were taken by
the Overland Motor Company to the Southwest Missouri State Teachers' Col-
lege for lunch. After lunch a very appropriate program was rendered, con-
sisting of an introductory talk by Mr. Boyd, president of the Ozark Stock As-
sociation, and talks by various prominent stock-men and coaches of the dif-
ferent teams. I
In the award of honors Nevada received a banner for ranking first in the
judging of aged Poland China swine.
Stanley Palmer distinguished himself by receiving honorable mention.
Springfield won first place, and of course received the silver loving cup.
A few weeks later the three highest ranking members of our first team,
Stanley Palmer, Alpha Shaw and Thomas McFarland, represented Nevada
High School in a similar contest with six Kansas schools, at the Fort Scott
Dairy Show, held at Fort Scott, Kansas, October 3, 1920.
In this contest our team distinguished itself by winning second honors.

dinary cartooning by Edward Kennon. Without pausing we can
say that this is the chief merit of the 1914 number as well. .
In 1915 the Comet dropped out of sight for one year. ,With
a fresh start in 1916 the old book was itself once more with a new
attraction-snapshots of school activities. l
What a loud dress the Comet of '17 wore-bright green.
We find in it some excellent pictures of gymnastic feats per-
formed by the athletic departments.
The Comet of 18 was a most unusual one. The sadness of
war darkened its ctherwise bllthe pages. The cover was made
in the design cf our High School service flag. f
Each year we Wonder how the Comet could possibly be any
better. The Comet of '19 was a good one, too!
The heavy brown cover cf the Comet of '20 has proved to be
the best that has ever been used on any of the former Comets.
We hope that it will continue to last as long as- the pleasant
memories recorded on its pages.
The Comet of '21 has endeavored to raise the splendid
standards of the former Comets still higher. All classes are
proportionately represented on its staff.
It is our sincere desire that future publications of the Comet
may profit by the mistakes we have made. 1

Dux Femina Facti
In the cradle of the ages
Lies the old world lulled to sleep,
Dy the singing of the sages,
Who l'er songs and stories keep.
Songs of wondrous deeds of heroes,
Tales of! mighty men of oldg
And the gratitude that sho owes
To the warriors strong and bold.
How from chaos men have risen
To the, present ample state, '
And for power always stricken,
Power ever marred by hate.
Great deeds without mercy glowing:
Always what the men have done:
Just laws without pity,'show'ing
How the course of judgments run.
Searchers in the eartlis deep measures,
Upward to the mountain heightsg
From the sins of many pleasures
To the cold and,-'cruel lights.
Customs, rules and souls are breaking,
For by mans' hard laws they're ruled:
Peoples minds and hearts are quaking,
They by justice blind, are schooled.
Thus-the rule of law is spoken,
Till the breaking of the day,
And the new world dreams a tokeng
Peace and mercy on the way.
See! The day at last is dawning,
Soon the old worlds' sleep is gone,
And the threshold of the morning
Sounds a triumph in its song.
Now, you hear the anthem ringing,
Not the dead -worlds' icy songg
But a new and joyous singing,
. For a woman leads us on.
. A -DOROTHY CORDER.

DON SHEETS LETS. IIOLLIWAY
Gold Medal Contest
This convergation was overheard not long ago in a popular jewelry store.
The conver -ationalists happened to be two small gold meilals very handsomely
engraved and inlaid with olive wreath patterns. Their names were:
READING and ORATORY.
Oratory-"So you're here to be put on a gold chain are you? Well, I'm
going to be made into a watch charm for Don-I belong to him, you know."
Reading-"Say, let's tell all the people in this store who we are will
Oratory-"On November 1, 1920 the Ninth Annual Gold Medal Contest
opened to any member of the high school. Twenty-two students entered,
twelve girls and ten boys from the four classes. They were given a period of
four weeks in which to prepare their selections. The girls giving readings,
and the boys orations.
When the Preliminary Contest Came, on December lst, all of the people
did exceedingly well. Of course they couldn't all be in the final race for
Reading and myself, so the mc-st capable judges omitted the names of all the
contestants except the following: Leta Holliway, Marie Baker, Amy Taylor
and Audrey Kirkpatrick for the girlsg and Lynn Ewing, Amos Wight, Don
Sheets and Alpha Shaw, for the boys. For the first time in the history of the
High School all in the final contest came from one class.
One week later the final contest was held. All of the selections were so
admirably given that Reading and I almost jumped out of our boxes with
excitement. We could never have told which of the numbers were the best.
The decision of the judges was given and the medals were presented to Leta
Holliway and Don Sheets, by Mr. H. E. Williams, of the Board of Education."

The Comet's Tale
A To the class of 1907 belongs the honor of having published
the first Comet. The first issue was circulated on Washington's
Birthday, 1907, then during ,Commencement week another very
similar copy was issued. They gave a distinct view of student
life through the well written reports. In the Commencement is-
sue The Soliloquy of the High School was certainly very interest-
ing, and the reader of 1921 can have a bushel of fun looking at
the "old" pictures of the faculty fand graduatesj which made
the'r first appearance in this number.
' The next number was the Christmas issue published by the
class of.1908. The bookhcover is cf very bright green, but the
display of brilliancy is not cn the outside for in this volume we
find some well written articles, among them, the first athletic
The Commencement Comet of 1908 boasts of having the
first pictures of Athletic teams. Also, of having the first cartoon-
ing, which was rather crude, but to the point anyway.
"We're better still, says the Comet of 1909. "We have
more literary work and better write-ups."
' The Comet of 1910 could think of no way to "out do" the
former comets except in style. The dress selected was of pure
white trimmed in letters of navy blue.
"There's no doubt that each year the Comet gains more
popularity, especially this year," says 1911.
Interest in gymnasium and athletics seems to be increasing.
In the Comet of '12 the list of graduates is longer than any thus
The chief merit of the Comet of 1913 is the most extraor-

The N. H. S. Commercial Club
To create more interest and give an opportunity to put into practical use
the vast amount of knowledge our colossal intellects were absorbing, we or-
ganized the N. H. S. Commercial Club.
Our very first act, the election of officers, was a display of rare judg-
ment. In order to eliminate any chance of being annoyed by Amos Wight
being on the program we elected him president. Our fondness for Nina Jones
promptedilus to elect her vice-president. Realizing "Tiny" Dunn's merits we
handed oubthe noble job of secretary and treasurer to him, much to the dis-
appointment of himself and his creditors there was no opportunity for him
to make use of his talents as a treasurer. Miss Wells became critic at the
unanimous request of the class. A
Each Friday, at the regular Business English period, an appropriate pro-
gram was given. At the meetings debates were delivered, talks made, and ar-
ticles read-all on the numerous phases 'of business. These programs ac-
complished what before we devoutly believed impossible-instruction that
was a pleasure.
C. B. Club
The C. B. Club was just a class club, but such a "Club." It was com-
posed and organized by the Second Hour Business English Class, which was
under the supervision of Miss Wells. It was small but mighty, full of the
right sort of enthusiasm to make "it" a success. Our only aim was to pro-
mote the business facilities of the members of our Club, and for amusement.
Strictly speaking we were an "Organized Group" of Business People. Our
officers were Forest Maxwell, Presidentg Robert Bradley, Vice-Presidentg
and Lucille Seaver, Secretary. Our programs which were arranged by the
Program Committee, appointed for that purpose, were given Friday morning.
They consisted of debates, talks, sales talks, business articles and plays, on all
But although the C. B. Club will soon be o'er,
And no more we will adore
We shall wish great success to Miss Wells
And the rest, now farewell
We are gone.

Senior Class Play
NM What Happened to Jones
Ebenezer Goodly has been trying in vain to prepare his lecture.in his
home which has been completely upset in anticipation of a visit from his
brother, the Bishop of Ballarat. He gives up in desperation and is inveigled
by Richard into accompanying him to a prize fight to be staged over a stable.
The place is raided and the two are pursued by a man whom they believe to
be a detective but who proves to be Jones. While he is telling them of his en-
counter with the police and the subsequent loss of a coat-tail, the policeman
knocks at the window. On Helma's entering with a new suit of clothes for
the Bishop, Jones seizes them and putting them on hides his own in the piano.
He succeeds in fooling the police but is greeted by Mrs. Goodly and the girls
as the Bishop. ' .
Jones in conversations with Mrs. Goodly and her husband frequently ex-
poses his ignorance of Australia and Bishops but displays his ability for get-
ting out of scrapes. At last, thinking he is alone he takes a drink from the
flask he carried in the coat, now hidden in the piano, but not unobservedhby
Cissy. On discovering her presence he claims it to be "cold tea." As Cissy
leaves, Alvina appears and believing him to be the Bishop to whom she is
secretly engaged makes love to him to his great amusement and consternation.
Rescuing his clothes from the piano after Marjorie attempts to discuss poetry
with him, he hides them under the bed. To add to his troubles the real Bishop
appears and Jones introduces Richard. as the Bishop's valet. Richard takes the
Bishop to his room and takes his clothes out to get them pressed. A letter
is received from the sanitorium telling them of the escape of an inmate who
thinks he is an Indian. The family sees the Bishop wrapped, in a blanket and
believes he is the Indian.
Alvina again makes love to Jones, who discovering that the Bishop is
engaged to her decides to "play his hand." The Bishop appears in Jones' suit
which he found under the bed and is seen through the window by the police
who arrests him and takes him to jail. Ebenezer sees him leave and learns
who he is. Cissy has had her suspicions aroused and demands an explanation
from Jones. The policeman returns with the Bishop and Ebenezer identifies
him as his brother. The Bishop and Alvina are reconciled. Once more
Jones is called upon for an explanation. He startles the entire family by
stating that he had lopg loved Cissy and assumed this costume that he might
tell her of his devotion. '

Senior-Junior Banquet '
Hail! Seniors of 1921!
Eat, Drink, and be Merry!
Thus did the Juniors greet the Seniors on the night of May fourth.
Never was there a more delightful affair, or one more thoroughly enjoyed by
all, than this banquet. The supreme social event of the year, long anticipated
by both Seniors and Juniors, more than fulfilled all expectations.
The Juniors received their guests in the spacious hall on the first floor,
Junior colors, royal purple and gold, shone forth on every side. Rugs, wicker
furniture, a Victrola, and floor lamps so transformed the hall that those
whose feet had trod its familiar boards for three and four years could scarce-
ly recognize it.
At nine o'clock Mr. Philip Harrel announced that the Juniors were ready
to feast their guests. Two by two, the gay throng Hled down the gymnasium,
where the banquet was served. Here the color scheme was carried out in the
Senior colors, green and white. A green and white trellis, covering the walls,
made a most effective background.
The tables were adorned with crystal candlesticks holding unshaded
green candles. Beside each plate were dainty place cards, on which were
written witty limericks, and the menu and toast program, also in green and

Each response elicited much applause and all were much enjoyed.
It was with great regret that we realized Time had slipped past, and this
night would soon be but a memory. Yes, a memory, but one of the happiest
we will ever treasure in our minds, the thought of which will always be a
pleasure. . ' '-
Last Picnic of the Class of '21
Time-Tuesday, May 10, 1:30 0'Clock
What-Last Senior Social "Stunt," a Picnic
Every Senior who was eager for a good time met at the High School and
hiked out to the Lake, except a few who rode with the eats. And after they
got there-well, did you know so many Seniors could row a boat or paddle a
canoe? And how about the swimmers? Of course they had a track meet
and would you have thought that Miss Anna could beat Mfrs. Symns in high
jump? There are lots of things the Seniors found out about themselves in
athletics that they hadn't known before.
Did some one say eats-Yes! wienies, buns, sandwiches, bananas 'n ice
cream cones ffifteen rahs for Miss Anna.l And sh-h-h-h, why was that Vic-
trola there? It may have rained a little, in fact we believe it did, but it
would take some downpour to dampen the spirits of the Class of '21. If you
don't believe that picnic was a howling success just ask some Senior about the

Presentation of Bronze Memorial Tablet
There comes a time to every one when words fail to express the strength
of emotion or the appreciation of the occasion. One of these momentous times
has come and we, the friends, relatives and comrades of four American sol-
diers, who placed themselves between us and a ruthless foe, have gathered
together to do them honor.
v Any words we may utter, any monuments we may erect, can but seem
insignificant in comparison with the task they performed or the glory of the
cause for which they made the supreme sacrifice. Have we realized what
they have done? Have we realized the dearness of the civilization they
vvrested from a mailed and bloody fist? Have we put the proper value on the
liberty and joy saved for us by the payment of their lives? We cannot honor
them and the rest of America's incomparable men enough.
' This tablet signifies sorrow, glory, victory and sacrifice. These names
should not only be emblazoned upon it, l-ut stamped deeply on the hearts of
In an eil'ort to recognize the nobleness of it all, the Senior Class presents
with the greatest respect and admiration this tablet as a tribute to the mem-
ory of Clyde King, Ralph Lipe, Dee Foland and Leon Ogier, former Nevada
High School boys who died in the service of their country.

TO Us EVERY DAY
We find it hard to account for some
of the patronage that comes to us
from day to day. We sometimes en-
quire, and it develops that this or
that friend or patron has spoken in
our hehalf. We certainly appreciate
all these kind courtesies, and take this
occasion to thank our friends for
their many kind words of approval
and commendation. It will be our
effort to continue to merit them.

Mrs. Symns: "Hubby, how do you like my marble cake?"
Mr. Symns: "I never saw better imitation of marble."
. "E" IS SOME LETTER
Someone has advanced the opinion that the letter "E" is the most unfor-
tunate letter in the English alphabet, because it is always outbof cash, always
in debt, never out of danger and in hell all of the time. For some reason he
overlooked the fortunes of the letter, so we will call his attention to the fact
that the letter "E" is never in war and always in peace. It is the beginning
of existence, the commencement of ease and the end of trouble. Without it
there would be no heaven. It is the center of honesty, makes love perfect and
without it there could be no editors, devils or news.
,Mr. Daugherty: "I don't like those photos at all, I look like an ape."
The photographer favored him with a glance of lofty disdain. 4
"You should have thought of that before you had them taken."

A young fellow who was oif on a jatmt out west fell into hard luck and
had to pawn one of his suits. Just before starting home he managed to get it
out again. When he reached home his mother, while unpacking his trunk,
came across the coat wth the pawn-broker's tag on it.
-"Finis," she inquired, "what is this tag on your coat?
Finis not wishing to have his mother know of his temporary embarass-
ment, said: "Oh, I was at a dance and checked my coat?"
Soon she came across the trousers with the same kind of a tag on them.
"Finis," she demanded, "what kind of a dance was that?"

Mr. Gibson: OE the hydraulic ram.

shot, and' Shott was not. In this case it is better to be Shott than
Nui. There was a rumor hat Nott was not shot, and Shott avows that he shot
Nutt, which proves either that the shot Shott shot at Nott was not shot, or
that Nott was shot notwithstanding. Circumstantial evidence is not always
good. It may be made to appear on trial that he shot Shott shot shot Nott,
or, as accidents with firearms are fiequent, it may be possible that the shot
Shott shot shot Shott himself, when the whole affair would resolve itself into
its original elements, and Shott would be shot, and Nott would be not. We
think, however, that the shot Shott shot shot not Shott, but Nottg anyway, it
is hard to tell who was shot. ,
