"Great as was the coming of King Arthur
Was the coming of this class,
Great with many a knightly laddie
And many a queenly lass.
'Twas in the Indian summer,
The birds had not all flown,
Flowers were preparing for slumber
llVl1Cl1 we ventured into the unknown.
Twice two has been the number
Of years that have sped along,
The flowers have awakened from slumber,
The birds are singing their song.
And we, "Oh Alma Mater,"
Your offspring brave and true,
Are stepping out together,
Bound with our love for yOlI.
'VVe'll travel life's rough highway,
'Till we reach the city, Success,
VVe'll shun every pitfall and bywayg
XfVith our fame and honor you'll be blest
NVe've a goal for which we've striveng
The ideal which has made us strive
'Tis the motto, "Semper duecns,"
Of the class of '25,
Farewell, oh fellow students,
Our loyal faculty, too,
Perhaps we've left some task unhnishedg
VVe're entrusting that to you.
Sad as was the passing of King Arthur
Is tl1e passing of this classg
Not doomed to sink into oblivion,
But to strike and win at last."
"One by one the sands are Howing,
One by one the minutes fall.
Some are coming, others going,
Yet the call is heard by all.
Hour by hour the time draws nigh,
When we each must depart.
Now we feel the sadness of goodbye,
With each beating of the heart.
Closer, closer draws the time,
That we must face Life's strife.
Soon we will leave far behind,
Memories dear and dreams of Life.
One by one the sands are flowing,
One by one the minutes fall.
Others come, while we are going
To meet Lifc's enchanting call."

KATHERINE AVON IIKATYJ'
Glee Club 45 Mixed Chorus 45 Girl Reserves 2, 3, 45 French Club 45 Class Play.
"Nothing is impossible to a willing heart."
It may be her good nature or it may be her willingness to work, but whatever it is, we think a
lot of "Katy." If you are in trouble, here is a good place to come.
ALICE ENGLISH "TILLY"
Latin Club 25 Mixed Chorus 25 Girl Reserves 2, 3, 45 Literary Society 3, 45 Debate
Team 3, 4.
"I should think your tongue has broken its chain."
And we are very glad of it, for it isn't everyone who can win debating honors for the school the
way Alice can. But hard work had a share in that, too.
"And can I ever bid this joy farewell?"
Roy seems to enjoy good recitations even if he doesn't enjoy studying. He doesn't agree with
Burns and Whittier that there is joy in the life of a farmer, and so we expect him to seek his fortune
in a busy metropolis.
' WALTER MARSH ulVIU'1'TU
Latin Club 25 French Club 4.
"Young men think old men are fools5
Old men know young men are fools."
But don't ask YValter his opinion in the matter for we are not sure he will agree. At any rate
he enjoys himself thoroughly and old men's opinions have not figured much so far.
THELMA MCCGY "SWEDE"
Girl Reserves 2, 3, 45 Mixed Chorus 2, 45 Class Play 35 Glee Club 45 Literary So-
ciety 3, 45 French Club 45 G. R. Program Com. 45 Chairman Social Com. 25 Finance
Com. 45 Class Historian 25 Class Play.
"We call it only gentle Thelma's way."
Thelma is such an enthusiastic person that she makes things interesting wherever she is. More-
over, only she can fail in recitations and remain on the good side of the teachers. It takes diplomacy
to do this. -

Chemistry Lab. Assistant 4.
"Everywhere in life the question is not what we gain but what we do."
If you want a boy who is both dependable and interesting, come this way. We don't know in
what path his future will be, but wherever it is, it will be a success. Put your money on Clarence, boys.
FRANCES BRANEN HFANNIEU
"Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough."
Frances has never told us that she likes N. P. H. S. better than Uhrichsville, but we hope so.
May be it is because she is so shy that she has never told us.
MARGARET ANN MCILVAINE "PEG"
Girl Reserves 2, 3, 45 Mixed Chorus 2, 43 Glee Club 45 Latin Club 23 Class Play 35
Finance Com. 4g G. R. Finance Com. 4.
"I would be friends with you and have your love."
Whatever profession Ann chooses, she will not want to be a jeweler, especially if people let their
accounts run. Future Senior! Let this be a warning and pay cash for your rings and pins. A
' ARTHUR ANGEL IIANGELJJ
"And 'tis my faith that every Bower
Enjoys the air it breathes."
Let us hope that Arthur enjoys school as much as he seems to or as his grades show. At any rate
no one would work as hard as he does and not enjoy the results, at least.
HOWARD MERCER "BUD"
Debate Team 43 Literary Society 4g' Mgr. Class Play.
"I never knew so young a body with so old a head."
Did you?. If you don't know Howard, you had better get acquainted with him for he is leaving
N. P. H. S. this year and the place may hear of hun again, but it will never see him. You know these
woman-haters can sometimes be entrapped into having dates, too.

HAROLD BEAN UBEANYH
Class Play. "The present is big with the future."
VVouldn't it be pleasant to be fate herself and mete out success as it is deserved?
What a big lump Harold would get! More than likely he will get it without our help.
ROBERTA STUCKY "BOB"
Class B. B. 1, 25 Social Com. 2, 35 Debate Team 3, 45 Girl Reserves 2, 3, 45 G. R.
Pres. 2, 3, 45 Lit. Society 3, 45 L. S. Treas. 3, 45 Glce Club 45 Class Play 35 G. R. Play 35
Class Play. "Never elated while one n1an's oppressed,
Never dejected while an0ther's blessed."
"Bob" is an ideal friend and a perfect sympathizer. A list of her total activities
would stretch from here to Shanesville, but you never find her worrying about any-
thing. You will hear of her in several years on a college debate team.
Office Stenographer 4.
"I feel that I am happier than I know."
Pearl has an advantage over most of us for she has already had experience as a
stenographer. And judging from appearances this year she has made good even when
the casualty lists sometimes held sixty names.
JOSEPHINE STROUP "JO" .
Mixed Chorus 1, 2, 45 Orchestra 3, 45 Social Com. 25 Girl Reserves 2, 35 Girls' Glee
Club 3, 45 Latin Club 2, 3, 45 Class Play.
"Wealth, I ask not, hope or love, nor a friend to know me.
All I ask, the heavens above and the road below me."
"Io" is not exactly a tramp or hobo, but she would like to be. Almost the only
disadvantage in her living that kind of life is that they can not carry pianos. And so
"Jo" spends part of her time at home.
Pleasant Valley Baseball 1, 2, 3.
"What shall I do to be forever known
And make the age to come my own."
If some one were to assure John that he won't need to be oratorical to be successful, no doubt it
would be a great comfort, for John does not need such a gift as that. He has the fundamentals of success.

MARY BIERIE "CURLY"
" 'Tis not a lip, or eye, we beauty call
But the joint force and full result of all."
Mary's outside appearance is sufficient, but if anyone were to look beneath that
crust of curls, he would End a wealth of surprises. According to Mr. Paulus, she is
the future rival of H. Cv. Wells.
MARY MCCONNELL "MAC"
Literary Society 3, 43 Latin Club 43 French Club 43 Girl Reserves 2.
"No one is happy who does not think himself so." '
Mary revels in the mysteries of French translation and she doesn't do it merely
to please her teacher. Latin comes to her as easily as it came to Cicero. Mary really
could astonish us all if she wanted to,
DOROTHY REESE "DOT"
Mixed Chorus 1, 4, Glee Club 2, 3, 43 Girl Reserves 2, 3, 4.
"Cheerful looks make every dish a feast."
NVl1ich means that "Dot" knows how to make the best of everything, even a Civics rec-
itation and a cold lunch every day. However, someone else may help her do the latter.
CLYDE V. MATHIAS USKIND
Football 2, 3, 4, Captain 4, Basketball 2, 3, 45 Baseball 2, 3, 4, Track 3, 4g Class
B. B. 1, 23 Social Com. 3.
"I see the right and I approve it, too.
Condemn the wrong and yet the wrong pursue."
That is, if it is wrong to make the Uhrichsville local so useful, although we do not
doubt that that is why it is there. But it may be this inspiration that makes his ath-
letic record so good.
EMMA HOSTETLER "EM"
Maclcsburg H. S. Basketball 2, 3, President 3, Mixed Chorus 4, Girl Reserves 45
French Club 4.
"Charms strike the sight but merit wins the soul."
Emma, like all other deserving people, probably does not realize that she is so meritorious but others
do, Because she came here only her fourth year, we have not had a chance to appreciate her properly.

GEORGE COLLINS "SQUID"
Orchestra l, 23 Social Com. 25 Vice President 4.
- "If fortune favors you, be not elatedg
If she frowns, do not despondf'
George has cause to be elated for he finished his school work at the end of the iirst semester. As
a result his eyes are confined behind horn-rimmed glasses. But he had no chance to look at these good-
lbokmg high school girls the second semester, anyhow!
JAMES TGRGLER "JIMMY"
Baseball 2, 3, 45 Captain 33 Class Basketball l, Z, 45 Football 4g Athletic Editor
"The lion is not so fierce as they paint him."
. So let it be with Jim. The girls do say he is a woman haterg if so, it were a grievous fault and
grievously hath Jim answered it. But it may be that they are piqued because they can't get him and
his frend, Beryl, interested.
ELLEN F. JENKINS ULENU
Latin Club 35 Girl Reserves 3, 43 French Club 4.
"Stuclious to please, yet not ashamed to fall."
For Helen realizes that one who tries is never a failure The only solution we can find for her
French translation is a French ancestor somewhere back in 'XVales, or ability acquired through hard
GLENN SMITH "S M1TTY"
Football 2, 3, 45 Baseball 2, 3, 43 Basketball 3, 43 Track 3, 45 President 4.
"Perhaps it was right to dissemble' my love,
But-why did you kick me downstairs?"
Although we sometimes are appalled at "Smitty's" choice of words, we know they are not ill-intended.
He has ability along more than one line, as the Massillon game and a few other things prove.
RI-IEA ABEL "ABE"
Mixed Chorus 3, 49 Glee Club 45 Sec.-Treas. Glee Club 4g Social Com. 4g Girl Re-
serves 35 Literary Society 3. '
"Know'st me not by my c1othes."
But this is not the only way to know Rhea for she is usually accompanied by a stack of books,
which give us the impression of evenings well spent. It is peculiar that such a short girl should cast
such a long shadow.

ARDATH DAVY "AR"
Mixed Chorus 1, 2, 43 Latin Club 2, 3, 45 Girl Reserves Z, 3, 4.
"The most manifest sign of wisdom is continued cheerfulnessf'
Philly High could use many more people like Ardath, for it is this kind that makes the world go
round. She never gets poor grades, but if she did, she wouldn't be the kind to blame the teachers.
HAROLD ROSENBERRY 'IROSIEU
Mixed Chorus 43 Secretary Literary Club 49 Latin Club 45 Class Play.
So yet am I,
Unless my friends and mirrors lie to me,
A goodly looking fellow."
But there is something behind Harold's looks and it isn't all dramatic ahility either. He sits in
class and listens and when test time comes he's ready-sometimes only with smiles, but ready anyhow.
ROBERT WHITEFORD "BOB"
"You've a bold heart, keep it so."
Sometimes Bob shows his bold heart but when he doesn't his friend "Cy" shows it for him. He
is wise enough to know that dates will rob him of it and so he lets the girls alone.
JOSEPH MOORE "Joe"
Social Com. 1, 23 Joke Editor 3.
"Care is an enemy to life."
Or so it seems to "Joe," The importance of being a .Senior hasn't impressed him any, for to him
it is much more important to retain his Romeo-reputation with a patent leather top.
AILEEN SEIDNER "SID"
Mixed Chorus 1, 2,5 Girl Reserves 33 Literary Society 3.
"Happiness seems made to he shared."
And so Aileen intends to share hers and in so doing make more of it. Life certainly is not an
empty dream for her and we hope it never will be.

ROBERT FELLERS "BOB"
Mixed Chorus 1.
"Happy am Ig from care I'm free!
I VVhy aren't they all contented like me?"
Without "Bob" it is doubtful whether the Physics Lab could keep goingg and be-
ing Miss Felton's right hand man is no small job. Perhaps the reason why he is so
contented is that he is doing something that he likes.
MAXINE RICKARD "MAX"
Mixed Chorus 3, 45 Girl Reserves 4, Latin Club 4.
"She was pretty to walk with
I And witty to talk with."
Of course one does not need to do much talking, for Maxine always manages to
take the load from our shoulders. She will worry about tests, but many of us do that.
"Be wisely wordly but not wordly wise."
1 Margaret believes in neither "all work and no play" nor the opposite. In other
words she is a well-balanced girl who takes life as it comes and does her best what-
"And I oft have heard defended,
A Little said is soonest amended."
Venetta no doubt understands us better than we understand her. We wonder
what she thinks of us, for it is the opinions rarely told which count the most.
"Ten thousand difficulties do not make a doubt."
Lloyd has never quite succeeded in becoming teacher's pet, but not because he
l1asn't tried. If he had another year, he might attain that position, but then perhaps
he thinks he should quit while the quitting is good.

"Be not the tirst by whom the new are tried
Nor yet the last to lay the old aside."
Dolores has made herself our friend and even though she has been here only a few months, she
is as loyal as those who have been here for years. Perhaps it is being a good Girl Reserve that has
"More years had made me love thee more."
Each year has brought Amelia more friendsg if she were to stay in high school another year,
everyone would be on the list. But what would she do with any more? D
Mixed Chorus 25 Social Committee 35 Class Play.
V "True as the dial to the sun
- Although it is not shined upon."
Barnhill has provided this school with both brains and beauty in Faye. Perhaps her early morn-
ing rides on the N. O. T. 81 L. have something to do with her pink cheeks Cwe do not say everythingj,
but the brains we can't account for.
HUGH METZGAR "Mamie"
Hi-Y Club 2, 3, 4.
"Yet I doubt not thru the ages, one'increasing purpose runs,
And the minds of men are widen'd with the process of the sun."
Hugh probably has a brilliant secret somewhere in the back of his mind, or maybe it is just a
joke on the rest of us. At any rate it seems to have a good eiieet on him.
PA RK URBAN "XVH1T12Y"
"I find we are growing serious
And then we are in danger of growing dull."
In that case there is not much danger of Parlc's growing dull for it is only his smile that keeps
Mr. Paulus from freezing the library. That is the reason the coal bill has decreased.

Tippecanoe H. S. Class President 3.
"Knowledge is the hill which few may hope to climb."
Yet Noble is climbing rapidly and all because he thinks it possible to do the necessary thing, how-
ever hard. The class of 1925 will be proud of him soine day.

"Condemn the fault, not the actor of it."

"Though I am young, I scorn to iiit
Upon the wings of borrowed wit." '
N. P. H. S. is not the only institution that has given "Bob" an education. His time is taken up
outside of school hours, yet he graduates. How do they do it? -
ISABELLE BURNSIDE "IZzY',

Chorus 1, 2, 43 Class B. B. 1.
"Deep-sighted in intelligence,

Isabelle certainly leaves a splendid retord behind her and no doubt there is just as good a one
ahead of her. It is hard work which does this, so leam your lesson here.

"Be loving, and you will never want for love."
- Edna has succeeded so well with everything we have given lxer to do, that we made her class his-
torian. It is not only hard work but ability, too, that have made her so successful, so we couldn't all
do what she does.

If Crawford had to advertise the tact that he is our fastest runner, the news would not get very
far. But luckily for the team, he has been found out. Philly is counting on him for a better record
JULIA MAIER '

"A merry heait goes all the day."
Julia, if her looks did not niarry her to her employer, would make a good business woman for she
is an efficient person. But Judging from present indications, her place will never be in an office.
JOHN ROLL HLITTLE JOHNNY"
French Club 4.
"I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
John is contented either because it is his nature or because he was reared a "bare-foot boy" al-
though one may have been the cause of the other. At any rate he adds a lot to the class.

"Happiness depends, as nature shows
Less on exterior things than most suppose,"
But if it did depend on exterior things Lillian would be just as happy as she is now. This may
be because she is always so accommodating and ready to help or perhaps for some exterior reason.

Aunto-:sunggestiionn of the Glass of 1925
Q NE bright September morn, bravely flying my colors of green and
white, I started on my lirst trip. Principal Ake drove me to the
outskirts of Freshmandale where Mr. Snyder was given control.
My first passengers were Algebra, Latin, English the First, Science,
and a most remarkable gentleman, Athletics. At first it was very
hard to keep on the road as the larger cars tried to crowd me oH, but
I learned to dodge them, and on account of 1ny speed I soon advanced
in the line., Two punctures, the Junior-Freshman reception and the
Freshman party, occurred on this part of the journey.
At Sophomore I had to get a new horn for the old one had been
blown squeaky at the football and basketball games. Here also I se-i
cured a new manager, Miss I-Ielmick, and some new travelers although
I yet had to carry some of the old ones. Caesar rode through Gaul
with his companions Euclid, History, Bookkeeping and English the
Second. Athletics was still with them and was the life of the party.
One great blow-out, the Sophomore-Senior reception, took place be-
fore I set out upon a much smoother road which led to Junior, a sub-
urb of Senior City.
Here I was given a general over-hauling, which I needed badly,
and French, Cicero, a friend of Caesar, Modern History, son of An-
cient History, American Literature and a small child called Debate.
This child was really a prodigy, and one of my most interesting pas-
sengers. Again a fresh driver, Mr. Reed, was put at the wheel. Terri-
ble misfortunes occurred during this part of my journey. I stripped
my gears on going over a high hill after Athleticsf victories, and all
four tires burst with a mighty roar at "Just Plain Mary," and at the
Junior-Senior reception my windshield was shattered.
Helping to secure many silver 'cups along the way, I sped into
Senior City in the autumn of 1924. VV ith the new passengers Civics,
U. S. History, grandson of Ancient History, and V ergil, a kinsman of
Caesar, I hastened on toward Graduation. Although managed by an
able driver, Mr. Baker, I could barely withstand such explosions as
the Sophomore-Senior reception, the Senior Party, the Senior Circus,
and "SlO0,000 Club Paper" and "Flower of Yeddof'
My body being almost wrecked, my carburetor rattles with fear
and dismay as I realize these are my last days. I have only a few
more miles to go, and I travel them with sadness, but am comforted
by the thought that I have brightened the way for others.

Junior Class History
" 'Twas the first day of school 1922, when all through the school house
Not a creature was still, not even a mouse,
The books were laid out in the office with care,
In hopes that all the pupils would soon be there,
And Mr. Ake in his kerchief, with a very industrious demeanor,
Had just settled down for a long winter's labor-
When out on the campus, there arose such a clatter,
He sprang from his desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he flew like a Hash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash,
The sun reflecting on the late-fallen leaves
Gave the appearance of bareness to the many treesg
When what to his wondering eyes should appear,
But a great host of students so shy and queer,
He knew in a moment it must be 1926.
More rapid than the wind the favors we did wing
And as dry leaves that before the wild hurricane ily,
VV hen they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So, up to the top the class of '26 Hew,
With a class full of scholars and many stars, too.
Then in a twinkling we made round about
Plans for a party to be given outg
And as we recovered and were turning around, .
Down the ladder, once again vacation came around.
When we were Juniors, Mr. Findley stepped in,
Full of knowledge from his crown to his chin,
And his ideas and plans all up to date,
For he never liked for us to be late.
And our studies were a load on our back,
We felt like a peddler carrying a pac.k.
Our eyes-they were opened, our ears-what they heard!
VV hen we planned a reception for our sister class.
To our hardest of studies, we gritted our teeth,
And the knowledge encircled our heads like a wreath,
When we prepared for exams, right jolly old things,
And Findley smiled when he saw us in spite of himself.
A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
Gave us to know we had something to dread.
He spoke not a word but went straight to his work.
We start a play, Miss Hawkins gives the cast a call
And away they all go like a ball,
For "Ruth in a Rush" a success must be."

that fall, I shall relate.
We were a large class, and with Mr. Stiffler to guide us, started
on the trip. Like all Freshmen Classes we thought we knew a great
deal. However, though we were treated very well, we soon learned
our place. The greatest event in store for us that year was the re-
ception given for us by the Juniors soon after we came. Later we
gave a very successful party for ourselves and in the spring had a
picnic at Tuscora Park.
In the fall we returned once more to Philly High, but now in the
important role of Sophomores. We started by having a very de-
lightful Halloween party which was highly enjoyed by all.
Everything went along smoothly until shortly after Christmas
we ran into a horrible spectre in the form of semester exams. A few
of our crowd got pretty well jolted up, while others felt no effects
at all. However, before long, we were running as wellas ever.
The latter part of January we gave the customary party for the
Seniors. lt was a huge success, the main attractions being an ex-
tremely good minstrel and a dance.
We contributed generously to athletics as well as to everything
else tothe glory of the High School and we feel that we can be justly
proud of our record so far. Next year, when we return as juniors,
we expect to do even more for our school than before.

Freshman Class Histsry
WE, the class of '28, have at last started our long climb up the
wonderful High School hill.
For eight long, tiresome years, we slowly climbed the path to
Grammar School perfection. At the end of the path we waited sev-
eral months and then boarded the "Greenville Express." At last on
September 8, 1924, we arrived at our destination, one hundredand
ninety-six in number. The journey was so steep in some places that
a number of foolish classmates fell off. Our kind conductor, Mr.
Tharett, immediately stopped this. a
The High School hill, as you know, is divided into four sections
and we Freshmen had to take the "Greenville,' section which is at the
very bottom of the hill. '
It would have been lonesome, living all by ourselves, but the kind
sisterly Juniors gave a reception for us on October 231 After that
we felt right at home. Then we began to work and we worked hard
all through the blustery winter.
We are looking forward to the Freshman picnic before school
closes to help us through the dreaded examination week.
As a Freshman Class we have been well represented in athletics,
for we had a number of boys out for football and a large number of
girls and boys out for basketball.
Since we are only a Freshman Class, we have not had many op-
portunities to show what we can do, but in the future we hope to do
such important things that people will be astonished at us.

O NE purpose of athletics is the moral training which the students
receive. This moral training is just as important as the phys-
ical training, if not more so. Witli the universal idea of devel-
oping the moral, mental, and physical training of our future citizens,
in mind, we can readily see that a better type of citizen can be pro-
duced and thus a better government will be the result. Athletics play
a very important role in the High School curriculum for these very
reasons. Athletics should be subordinated only to the spiritual and
to the mental training of the student.
Teams that are turned out by N. P. H. S. always have been able
to compete with the best teams in the state and have been none the
worse after the conflict.
The outlook for the coming season is very bright. The football
team goes to Chippewa for a week of fall training where "Curly" will
get a good line on his men. A championship team is expected. Many
letter men are back, headed by Capt. C. Mathias.
There is also a very promising outlook for baseball this season.
Piloted by Captain Reger and with almost all of last year's players
back, they will make a record to be proud of. Last season, headed
by Captain Torgler, they won the county championship under the ex-
cellent tutelage of Coach J. A. Baker.
The boys' basketball team, headed by Captain Cale, will have live
letter men back and many subs that will hustle the first team men to
hold their positions. "Curly" expects a championship aggregation.
The outlook on track is very fine as all the men from last year
are out again. Headed by Captain Hanna and coached by "Curly"
Stiffier they will be able to take anything on in the state.
Coach Barton will have quite a task before her this year in de-
veloping the girls' basketball team as shevlost practically all her first
line girls. She has a lot of material left from last season and gen-
eraled by Captain Viva Benedum they should have a fine team.
Summing up the preceding outlook the season of 1924-25 will be
one of the best on the annals of N. P. H. S.

"Jim" did a line job of managing this year. He was a manager who came up to
"Curly's" expectations. Although he took no active part in the game, he was always
on hand at practice. If all future student managers are as capable and successful as
"Jim," N. P. H. S. will never be wanting.
H. B. THARETT HHZENU
Our success this season was in no small way due to "Hen." He surpassed. all ex-
pectations by getting such games as those with Massillon and Bellaire. VVhen it came
to trips, he surely could arrange them. This is his Hrst year as manager and he has
succeeded very well, especially when he arranged for the team to go to Wheeling on
the Bellaire trip.
HERBERT STIFFLER HCURLYH
This is "Curly's" second year at N. P. H. S., and he has indeed made an enviable
record as our coach. He never said much but he thought a great deal. 'Confronted
this year with the tremendous responsibility of forming and developing practically a
new line, he secured wonderful results. "Curly" is admired and respected by the whole
school. We hope that he will be back next year. His results speak for themselves.
H. C. PAULUS "MAJOR"
"Major" was a great help in developing the substitutes this year. To verify this
anyone who saw the Dover game could see the ability of our "subs," Although not
versed in the practical experiences, "Major" knew the fundamentals of the game.

'WILLIAM CALE "'C111P"
Although "Chip" was handicapped this year by his injured knee, he certainly
showed them how to play football. This is the best of "Cl1ip's" four years. He is 3.
good line plunger and a speedy open held runner. We hope to hear from "Bill" in
college next year and we wish him good luck. Many of the teams on our schedule
again next season will be very glad that "Chip" is not in uniform.
CCaptain Eleetj JAMES. CALE "JIMMY"
"Jimmy" is a versatile and aggressive back field man. He is aplayer liked by all the
team. The fact of his being captain elect shows that "Jimmy" has the qualities of
leadership. Good luck to him and good old N. P. H. S. in the coming season.
VVILLIAM ZURCHER "ZUCH"
We liked to hear "Zueh" hit them on the punts. He was an all-around end and
a fighter to be feared. He out-played all his opponents and was respected by all.
"Zuch" was an all-around man. He was one of the best ground gainers on the team
when shifted to the back-held. He sure tore his man up in the Massillon game.
fCaptainj CLYDE MATHIAS UCLYDIEH
The diminutive quarterback who saved the day against Bellaire. "Clydie's" gen-
eralship was never to be questioned. N. P. H. S. hates to lose a man of his courage
and stamina. No more need be said of "Clydie" for his deeds have spoken for them-

ALBERT CRESCIO "AB"
' V Tackle '25
. "Ab" was one of the heavy men of the squad. This was his first year out and
he surely made an enviable record. Any fan' who saw the Sebring game could see
that he knew football. "Ab" is always willing to be taught and he was sure an ex-
cellent pupil in football.
CHARLES GILGEN "CHUCK"
"Chuck" is another one of the big "huskies." He was slowed up somewhat by
injuries. Nevertheless he was an A No. 1 linesman. He played his man to a stand-
still in the Kent game. He will be with us next year and we hope he will be equally
asa successful as he has been this year.
JAMES TORGLER "JIMMY"
"jimmy" is said to have been the best defensive back on the team. His specialty
was running interference and tackling. His vicious tackling was always a sensational
sight and when he "clipped" a man he most generally took him down. "jimmy" is a
Senior this year and we lose him. His place will be very hard to fill as his qualities
indicate. "jimmy" no doubt will be heard from in college in the near future.
ELMER REGER HSKEETERU
"Skeeter" was a fine offensive fullback. When there were a few yards to go
"Umbrella" could always plunge it over. Although he was injured in the Massillon
game, he went into the Bellaire game the following Saturday not even knowing the
new formations, thus showing his plucky spirit. "Skeeter's" place will be very hard
to fill next season as he will leave this year.

CARL MIZER t'MICE,'
Another one of our husky brothers. A fighter thru and thru so a splendid line-
man. This is his first year and we can expect much from him in the future years. He
will be one of the men that our future teams will be built around. "Sack 'em 'Micef "
LLOYD SCHEAR "BUD"
' Tackle '25
"Bud" is a quiet lighter and a consistent player. He is a lineman worthy to hold
a position on any team. "Bud" is a Senior this year. I think we might hear from
him later at Otterbein. Otterbein can be proud of him as we have been.
GLENN SMITH HSMITTYH
The shifty, speedy end who distinguished himself by his ability to get down the field
under punts. He was the "tall boy" who pulled the high passes out of the air and
paved the way to touchdowns. We hope that future "ends" will follow his tackling
in the Massillon game as an excellent example. "Smitty" is also a Senior and will be
greatly missed on the gridiron next season.
FRANKLIN PFAEFFLI IIPIFFJ,
"Piff" was an all around player. "Curly" could put him at any position on the line
and he played 'them all equally well. "PMT" is a Strasburg product and they can surely
be proud of him. He also leaves us and we wish him a successful future.
WESLEY GARDNER "Wes"
The position of center was a hard place to till this year, but "Wes" more than
filled it. He played an excellent game against Massillon. He is only a Junior and
we hope that he plays as well or better next year. Although a little foolish at times,
we know that "Wes" really has the stuff. Tear 'em up next year, "Wes."
NBERYL O'CONNOR IIKEWPIEJ,
"Kewpie" was fast and a good running mate for "Chip." Although rather light,
he made up for it by his determined plucky spirit. "Kewpie" certainly showed Alliance
llllovg to rg? for a touchdown. We lose him this year and we know his shoes will be
ar to l.
CALVIN RICKER "RICK"
Even though "Rick" was one of our lightest players, he could dig his toes in and
fight with the biggest. He certainly showed Sebring how to run with the ball. He
leaves this year and we lose a very valuable player. We hope to hear of "Rick" later
in some business. So long, "Rick!"
WILBUR HANEY "HooL1zY"
"Hooley" has a few years before him yet, 'so we hope that he will show the splen-
did qualities that he has shown this year, namely-vicious tackling, blocking and last
but not least, pie eating. "Pie Eater" played an excellent game against Massillon
Cask the fellow who played opposite himj. Eat 'em up, "Hooley."

CDYS5 ASKET ALL
"Curly" has had an enviable record as coach of ath-
letics in our school. He is respected and admired by every
student. ' Statistics speak for themselves. The fact that
we lost only one game proves what a real coach does for a
team. "Curly" knows the game from "a" to "z" and We
hope he will be with us next year.
CAPT. WILLIAM' CALE
Forward '25 ,
"Chip" is a three year man and
this is his second year as captain.
XfVe can truthfully say that this
has been his best year even if he
was slowed up by football inju-
ries. He was an expert at hand-
ling the ball. "Chip" seems to be
the right man in the right spot.
He was always fighting and "nev-
er gave up the ship." He leaves
us this year and we Wish him suc-
cess in the future.
JAMES MORGAN "JIMMY"
"Jimmy" is the high point man of our team, having
made 162 points this season He is a master at controllin
the ball and a clever, dead shot, and a sure passer. He is
a ree year man and has lived up to the expectations of
the fans. Good luck in the future, "jimmy"
CLYDE MATHIAS HCLYDIEH
"Clydie" was a hard fighter and was always digging
the ball out, which goes a long way in basketball. He
also dropped in an occasional basket. He played the
guard position and was a "bear" on the offense. This is
his second and last year, but he surely made up for the
years he did not play.
FRANK PFAEFFLI "PIPE"
"Pitt" was the "galloping war horse" of the team.
'What he lacks in shooting is made up in defense. "Pitt"
kept them all away from our basket, and was a real man
at getting the ball ohf the bank-board. He is a ,graduate
this year and we hope to hear from him in college.
"Smitty" is an accurate shot. "Long Glenn Smith"
as everyone calls him, is our next highest point getter,
tallying 97 points. He has the advantage of size and
will make a promising center for some college team.
This is his second year on the varsity and his shoes will
be very hard ones to fill.
Record of Games .
N. P. H. S. vs. ALUMNI-The old timers started out with a rush and were
ahead 13-8 at the end of the first half. In the second half everyone began to hit
the ring. Morgan made 7 points for N. P. H. S.-and Hurst 9 for the Alumni.
N. P. H. S. vs. AKRON SOUTH-Akron papers reported it as a practice
game for Coach Smith's team of six-footers. Akron got a lot of practice but not
enough baskets to win. Dyer and Morgan had quite a battle for the scoring
N. P. H. S. vs. ALLIANCE-Our only loss on the schedule, and accounted
for by the fact that we 'had a hard game the night before, and also because we
made only 4 out of 10 fouls. Each team made 10 baskets. In the last half Al-
liance made 6 to our 4.
N. P. H. S. vs. BELLAIRE-Captain Cale's first game of the season. Bel-
laire made 4 baskets and 1 foul. N. P. H. S. made 12 baskets and 2 fouls. Our
second team played the last quarter. Our defense looked good in this game.
N. P. H. S. vs. -DENNISON-Smith and Morgan made 18 baskets in this
game, which was to be one of our hardest. Dennison made 5 baskets and 2 fouls.
N. P. H. S. vs. MASSILLON-Playing on a regular football field, the team
looked poor the first half, but they came back strong in the second. With Mor-
gan running away from King, N. P. H. S. won the most spectacular game of the
season 38-30. Morgan got 9 baskets and 4 fouls, while Grand made 7 baskets
and 2 fouls for Massillon.
N. P. I-I. S. vs. STEUBENVILLE-This would have been a good second
team game. It was a good practice game for Morgan, Cale and Smith, for they
scored 22 baskets While Steubenville was making 5. Mathias played a nice game,
but his shooting eye was a little dull.
N. P. H. S. vs. DOVER-Playing against our old rivals and without the ser-
vices of our star center, Smith, we completely outclassed them in the last quarter
and doubled the score. Morgan and Cale accounted for 16 of our baskets. D.
Smith and McMerrill showed up well at center. Clyde's boils didn't slow up his
game a bit.
N. P. H. S. vs. EAST LIVERPOOL-VVe were considered the best team
that had appeared on the East Liverpool floor since 1916. Mathias was suffering
from boils and did not enter the game. Pfaeflli and Weichsel put up a good de-
fensive game. Morgan was high point man again.
N. P. H. S. vs. AKRON CENTRAL-Akron Central claimed to have the
best team in Akron, and their claim was justified, for they gave us a hard run.
Morgan was hurt in the first quarter and was of little value the remainder of the
game. Smith put up a line game, and accounted for 14 points.
. N. P. H. S. vs. DOVER-Witl1 Cale and Morgan out of the game, Dover
thought they would finally win a game from us. Our new combination worked
beaiutifully, and at the end of the third quarter the score was 30-12. Phila let
down in the last quarter and Dover scored 9 points While we made only 4. G.
Smith scored 20 points. Clyde and Pfaeffli played nice ball at defense, while
D. Smith and McMerril1 dug out the ball like veterans.
DISTRICT TOURNAMENT A
N. P. I-I. S. vs. MILLERSBURG-A good game to start on, and a good
start. In the third quarter the team ran on high and looked like the best team at
New Concord. Smith hit the hoop 6 times.
N. P. H. s. vs. BELLAIRE-Nut Sed.
Heneiralbnlle Me tiie
A All the men who helped keep the varsity in practice and condition deserve
honorable mention, especially the three men who got in a good many games but
not quite enough for letters, namely: McMerrill, Dean Smith, and Weichsel.

'AFHE season has been successful as we hoped it would be. In 1924
the baseball team piloted by Captain Torgler won the county
championship by defeating Newcomerstown 2 out of 3 games and
also cinching the cup from Dover. All the credit for the excellent
baseball teams turned out here in the last three years goes to Coach
Baker, who has an excellent system for coaching baseball and who
knows how to put it over.
The football season of 1924 started with a training trip to Chip-
pewa Lake. This trip put the players in fine condition, for a certain
routine was carried out each day. Knowing how this helped our
team we hope that this coming football season will see the squad go
for a couple of weeks. Many turned out for football when school be-
gan. There were as many as 70 men out in one night. Headed by
Captain Mathias the team surpassed the highest expectations. "Cur-
ly" had a team that N. P. H. S. should always remember and be proud
of. The team scored 37 5 points to its opponents' 55, which speaks
The boys' basketball team piloted by Captain Bill Cale had a very
successful season even if they did not cop the district tourney. VVe
had one of the best teams ever turned out at N. P. H. S. When a
team loses only one scheduled game out of eleven, they have a very
good percentage. The team also piled up more points than would
hardly be expected, scoring 407 points to their opponents' 253. Due
credit should be given to the subs. A few of them made the first
string men hustle for their positions.
' The track team of 1924 had quite a successful season. They
participated in several track meets and were second to none in points
scored. "Curly" had a line bunch of men out with practically one
man for each event. The 1925 track team coached by "Curly" and
generaled by Captain Hanna, sprinter extraordinary, are now work-
ing out and will be stronger than ever.
' Coach Barton had quite a task in developing a new team but she
turned the trick. The girls' basketball team had quite a successful
season and captained by "Vee" Benedum, played many of the leading
teams in this section of the state.
Gitrllsg i aisllseitlbnaillll
VIVA BENEDUM '25
Capt. Benedum receives her hrst letter this year and she certainly has
earned it. "Vee" played forward and her guard surely had a time trying to stick
to her. She never went down but she came up with a smile. Good-bye "Vee,"
keep that smile.
HELEN LEGGETT '25
G uard E
We also say goodbye to "Babe" Leggett. "Babe" was our manager and
she sure scheduled some good games for- us. Although "Babe', was very fond
of taking slides on the basketball floor she usually had the ball when she stopped.
"Babe" may be small-but mighty. Bye-bye, "Baby."
GERTRUDE PHILLIPS '26
When you come up against "Gert" Phillips you might as Well give up hope
of ever getting the ball. "Gert" never went after it, but she got it. .I don't
know what we'd do without her. See you next year, "Gert"
GRACE PFAEFFLI '26
When it comes to Hying, I think Grace Pfaeffii has just about accomplished
that feat. She just picks the ball out of the air. "Pitt" has received two letters
now and expects another next year. Here's hoping. -
SARA LOUISE GILGEN '27
We have with us this yearvfor the first time "Toodie" Gilgen. "Toodie"
still has two years and if she keeps improving as she has been, she will be some
player. We hope that she will be our future center. Good luck, "Toodie."
KATHERINE KINSEY '26
I ' Katie Kinsey is another player who helps us in our defense. Although Ka-
tie IS a sub, we couldn't have done without her. XfVe hope she steps into first
place next year.
I-IAZEL STAI-IL '26
I don't know what we would have done without "Stahlie." I am sure our
scores would have been pretty low as she is our "sha1'pshooter." "Haze" played
sub last year, but I really don't know why.
LEAI-I FRIBLEY '26
Last but not least-comes our dependable "Horse Haggerty." Leah has
surely done her best and her letter is well earned. "Horse" is an all-around girl
and her size makes her not only heard but seen. We are glad that you will be
with us next year, "I-Iorse."
Again we meet Miss Barton. She has been with us for several years and in
that time has turned out winning teams. Miss Barton was a jolly, good coach on
our trips and the team tried to win, if only for her. She may have gotten dis-
couraged once in a while but it didn't seem to lst. We only hope that she will
be with us next year and if so, that she has a successful season.

JAMES MORGAN "JIM"
Last season was "jim's" first year for varsity baseball, but he made a Hne out-
fielder. "jim" was second to none in fielding a fly ball, and he made many good and
difficult catches. He is the possessor of a fine throwing arm and ought to be a great
asset to the varsity this coming season.
J. A. BAKER
Words can hardly express our appreciation for "Coach." As a baseball coach you
surely have to take your hat off to him. With a professional baseball experience he
knows the game from "a" to "z." He coached the varsity how to use the famous
"squeeze" play and also a defense against it. He is one of the few men who have put
N. P. H. S. on the baseball map. Taking charge of baseball three years ago with only
one letter man back, Coach Baker turned out an excellent team. N. P. H, S. won the
county championship last season. The same team is back this year, so from all in-
dications "Coach" will turn out a team that will be second to none in the state.
CLAUDE MCMATH "NIGGER"
"Nigger" was the lanky fellow that used to "wip" them over the plate. He was
one of the pitchers that helped us to win the county championship and to get the cup
from Dover. Although lie did not get into as many games as some of the players,
he certainly made up for it when he did get in. We are very sorry that "Nigger" is
ineligible and cannot be with us this season, as there will be a much harder strain on
our pitching staff with such a large schedule in view.

CARL WILLIAMS "Cy"
' LF ' '25 -
"Cy" was the hard-slugging left fielder of the varsity, and was chosen All-county
left fielder. ,"Cy" is noted for his ability to clout the ball. When "Cy's" hitting is
talked about, all is not said for he was a wonder at going deep or coming in fast and
making a catch that is rarely seen in amateur baseball. "Cy" was a Junior, too, so he
will be one of the varsity'this season.
BERYL O'CONNOR "KEwP1E"
Beryl's fine pitching was one of the main cogs in our winning most of our games.
Beryl also played outfield when he was not pitching, making a Fine record in that po-
sition, too, by his many star catches and heady plays. Most pitchers are not supposed
torbe good batters, but Beryl was an exception to the rule, as he hit the "pill" con-
sistently and hard. Beryl was chosen second pitcherfon the All-county team. He
was only a Junior so he should go great this season.
QCaptain Electl VELMER REGER NSKEETERH
A CF '25
"'Skeeter" is the boy who always has a grin on his face. "Iigger" was picked as
All-county center fielder and he surely deserved it. Reger was always making a sen-
sational play, "the shoe-string" catch. He has one more year as have the rest of the
baseball varsity. He is captain elect and is a fine fellow to lead the coming team.
GLENN SMITH "SM1TTY"
I ' SS and 'C '25 ' ' '
' "Smitty" was All-county shortstop. He was the boy who always had a line to
hand the opposing batters, which usually' got them "fusscd."' "Smitty" was clean-up
man and almosttalways came through.' He is a -good, heady player with a strong arm.
Very few players stole second base, on him. "Smitty" was a Junior and should go- like
a "house-on-fire" this season.
1-. C . V-1 "lff:75f'l
WILLIAM ZURCHER "ZUc1-1"
SB ' '25
' "Zuch" was the heavy hitter of the team. He had a very hard position to play as
he cavorted round the "hot corner." "Zuch" saved many a game by scooping up a
hot one- and shooting it to first base or by a timely hit. "Zuch" was fast on the bases
and played "heads-up-ball" the whole season. Newcomerstown had good reasons to
fear him when he came to bat.
GILBERT ENOLD "GIB"
SS and C '26
This was "Gib's" first year but he was just as important as any man on the var-
sity. He is another all-around baseball player. He is a hue batter and a sure fielder.
"Gib" is one of the little men on the varsity, but he held down his position like a giant.
He was only a Sophomore, so he will be a seasoned veteran this season and we can
expect great things from him. . Q
qcaprainy JAMES TORGLER "JIMMY"
1B and P '25 '
"Jimmy" was picked for the All-county first baseman. He was also the instiga-
tor in winning several games by his fine pitching. He was a consistent hitter and
knew how to lay down a perfect bunt. "jimmy" was Coach Baker's all-round man.
He formerly played the out-field but a first baseman was needed so he was shifted.
"Jimmy" was only a Junior so we can expect great things from him this season. As
captain he led his team to many victories.
CLYDE MATHIAS "CLYD11z"
Never having played much baseball before, "'C1ydie" was somewhat handicapped,
but when "Coach" took him in hand, he developed so fast that he soon looked like an
old-timer on the diamond. "Clydie" was the beginner of many a double play and was
no slouch when it came to slugging. He will no doubt be one of the main cogs this
After a lapse of five years, track athletics have been resumed in the New
Philadelphia High School.
Track is valuable for developing football material for coming years, so
spring football and track were combined under one head, track.
. The result of our first year was ve1'y gratifying. In our track meets we were
unusually successful for having green material. Partly as a result of this track
work, our football team changed from fourteen second men to twelve second
Our first track competition was against Wooster in-a dual meet. Wooster
had a veteran aggregation, but N. P. H. S. won every one of the running and
jumping events, while Wooster won the weight events.
In this meet McMath set a new county mark in the high jump at 5 ft. 10 in.
He also won the 100-ya1'd dash. Morgan was high point man, by winning three
firsts and one secondg he scored eighteen points. Hanna showed his heels to
Gimble, the Wooster Hash, in both the 100- and 220-yard dashes. Mathias had
little opposition in the mile and half mile. Williams won the quarter mile.
Our next meet was at Wooster and against such schools as Akron Central,
East, South, West, Mansfield, Ashland, Wooster and Orrvilleg N. P. H. S. fin-
ished second, just eight points behind Akron South. Hanna, McMath, Smith,
Mathias, Zurcher, Morgan, and Williams were point winners. - - -f
' With every one of these point winners, except Zurcher, back in school, and
with a squad of sixty men working out every evening, we hope to have a record
breaking track team this year. .
