"lt may not lie a flame,
llut there is always a spark of love.'
The end has come. The Class of '24 has left the portals of Niles
lligh School and now enters upon fields more liroad. For four
wonderful years the members of the group of nineteen hundred and
twenty-four fought valiantly the earthly battle for education and now
comes the lmeginning of the new and unknown life. The preface is
concluded. The hook lies opened to the first page of the story. XVhat
shall its chapters unfold? Cod alone knows.
First let us turn hack to sweet reminiscences of the last four years
hcfore leaving forever on the lmroad journey through life.
.Ns history has it. all " Freshies " are green. Undoubtedly we were
highly colored. NVe lirazened it through nevertheless and to show our
composure fwe really had nonej we gave a backward party. It was
of course understood that we could not he expected to work and we
Our officers the second year in N. ll. S. were Clayton McCoy.
llenry Mason and :Xllene XN'hisman. VVe did not give a party. Our
excuse was " Too much school work!"
Yea. the mighty Juniors appear on the horizon. Clayton Mefoy.
Marguerite Parent. Margaret Moon and David Pammell were elected
to the class offices. The first social event on the junior calendar was
a llallowe'en party. Then we picked our rings, avowed the most beau-
tiful as yet. The junior Play, " Peg O' My Heart." was given in
.Xpril and a packed house greeted the production. In june we lianqueied
the Seniors and afterward, in the new gymnasium. we gave our " .I "
llop, the greatest event of the year.
XYe entered Niles High the fourth year with only forty-five mem-
lmers left in our once large class. David Pammell. Richard Cltstot. Rus-
sell Hart and Clayton Mcfoy were selected as officers. XVe immediately
gave a " Get Together " party for the school. Then we pulled off the
freakiest of " Freak Days." Soon we chose our " Tattler " Staff and
commenced work on the " Annual of '24." Our second play, " Secret
Service," was another overwhelming success. XYe had a wonderful
" Pot-Luck " supper at Margaret lNloon's and intend to have numerous
other social events during our last year.
VVe have grown to love our Alma Mater and regret to leave its
protecting halls. XYe now leave it in the tender care of the honor-
almle juniors, D. T. l'ammell
VVe, the class of 1924, of the Niles Central High School, County
of Berrien, State of Michigan of the United States of America, having
for the period of four years existed as infirmaries of Niles High School
fearlthe end is approaching so do hereby draw-up, publish and pro-
nounce this our final will and testament which same shall nullify all
previous bequests perhaps made during one of our periods of seeming
Inasmuch as we are unable to reach our finances as they are tied

the regrets of losing a group of exceptional students.

Unto the junior High horde we will the privilege of attending all

Unto Esther Forler and Alice Platt we will the right to marry
young providing they live within five miles of Niles so that we may
Unto Raymond Hansen we bequeath the privilege of writing " How

hearty congratulations on their ability to " chase " Dowagiac boys.

Experiences of a Vodeville Fan
Attraction-" The Vamp " Friday. Dec. 20, 1930
A young couple entered the Blackstone Theater in St. Paul. Min-
nesota. I noticed them especially. They seemed to stand out among
the hundreds that entered by their side. I didn't know why, but a little
later after having watched them closely, I knew it was because I rec-
ognized them to be two of my old classmates. Billie Wiiiquist and Fred
Burger from N. H. S. Yes, that's who they were. I was certainly sur-
prised and as I wanted to chat with them, I joined them inside the
After the greetings were over. we started to talk over old times,
mostly of our Senior year in high school. As we were sitting there, a
couple of girls entered whom we immediately recognized as Hester
Moore and Margaret Moon. What a coincidence to see them there!
As we were early, we had lots of time to chat and Billie said
to me, " Do you know that Dorothy Bachman, Margaret Miller, and
Esther Scheibach are models for stout ladies' styles in Chicago? And
I suppose you've heard that Jack Secor and Esther are married ?"
" Married! " I gasped.
" Oh yes," said Billie, "they've been married for two years and
they live in Chicago. They get along fine. They were regular pals
after the Senior play in '24, you know."
" VVell this is news," I said, " but perhaps I can tell you a little.
Charles Benjamin is touring Europe and giving talks on how to marcel.
And he tells the public they don't even have to use Brilliantine or
Sta-Comb! " A
" Oh and say, you remember Bill Stevens and Gert Burns? VVell
they're married and living in Three Oaks. You know Bill was always
sort of fond of Three Oaks back in ' 24."
" Yes, I remember that," I answered, " And of course you re-
member Kathleen and Peg? They're models for Lucille in Paris now.
I imagine they just adore that work. They were always 'bears ' on
feminine dress, and they had their ideas about masculine dress too.
There was more news yet. Fred added, that Bill Ec and Shuey
were still in Niles hoping to wreck the Buick as they wrecked their
Ford. But the most trouble of all was in keeping gas in the car. Bill
always had a hard time doing that, you know.
About this time Hester and Margaret joined us and the remem
brances became still more interesting. They seemed to know about so
many of our N. H. S. chums. Hester told us that Mae Lewis had
succeeded wonderfully well on her violin but she had given hers up.
And now! she was a regular Happer. but she had been lucky, she still
Margaret asked me if I had heard the scandal from the " old home
town." I answered in the negative and she said, " joseph Krajci and
Martin Otto were arrested for disorderly conduct around Bertrand
and they were given a trial on VVednesday. And just guess who was
at the trial! "
" Oh. Margaret, I can't guess. Is it someone I know? "
IIIIIIIKlllllllIllllllllllllllllllIIIlIIIIllIIIlllllllllllllllllilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll I!I'l'.IIl!IIIII Ill .Ill.IIII!lIIHllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll IVIIIII24
" Know! " she echoed. " Wiell I should smile. Yes! Mildred
Scblundt and Rachael Krinowitz. stenographers of great renown. taking
the court case."
I 'never dreamed that I could be so surprised as I was when I
found that .Klan johnson had moved to Buchanan. I always knew he
was "fond " of the place. I think tho there was some reason for his
going there because Fred said there was "blood in his eye " when he
" Uh my dears. you can't imagine what llani dear. and I are doing!
XYe're taking dancing lessons at the American Legion Hall of Fred
Fisher, Rod Forrester. and Russell Hart."
" No! " I managed to say.
" Uh yes." she replies. " they have the worId's record. They have
surpassed Arthur Murray. Oh gee! they're grand! They have won-
derful classes mostly composed of young flappersf'
I was dumb on the subject of news of our old friends but I did
know, and I imparted my knowledge to my listeners, that my old side-
kick, Fee, was the "hit" on Broadway in a series of Songs and
Margaret informed us that Dominic had left Bernard's but still
practiced mixing Coc's in South Bend. where he and Dick had both
married and had the darlingest apartments.
I sighed and said, " Some people are lucky. I've been looking for
a man ever since 1 graduated and I've had no luck at all."
I knew that Hester knew something more for I saw her eyes
brighten. She told us that Marion Ullrey and Arthur Morley were
married. She said, " Marion still drives her car at a pretty good speed.
She's not only speedy and bossy with her car but 1 ?l also ' son mari.' "
"Would you believe it ?" said Fred, " that David and Ruth broke
up. I couldn't find out what about. but Dave is in Congress making
speeches to hide his grief. Really I think it must have been Ruth's
fault because Dave seems a good chap and always appeared quite de-
voted to her. And also I saw a picture in which Rodolph Valentino
was supposed to play, but Lloyd Young played as a substitute for him.
Not a bad sub. eh? "
The orchestra started playing but we kept on with our conver-
sation and Billie told us that Ed Zwergel and Fred Powell were in
New York City taking lessons on how to overcome bashfulness and
blushing, and Marjorie Vose was teaching a Sunday School class in
Nebraska, and her sister. Thelma. was making a laughing record.
I told her that Thelma certainly could make a success of it if any-
The lights went out and the play began with a little song and dance
by the chorus girls and lo and behold, I recognized Gladys Franz,
Mildred Glossenger, and Iithel Montgomery. Oh, I very nearly passed
out. Imagine in those scandalous costumes above their knees! I I
Then .the actors gave a little comedy entitled, " The Vamp." And
who do you think entered? VVhy no other than our beloved Mary
Smith. And by her side walked our old friend Ulrick. They were
quarreling and Muldoon was telling her he loved Gee, not her. when
the one about whom they were talking entered and it was no other
lllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllIlllIllIIIllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllllllllllllllllllillllllll IIIlllllIllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllz4
than our Georgianna. There was Muldoon trying to choose between
the two girls. " Poor Muldoon. He had a hard time in a parallel
case back in '24," said Fred. NVe all remembered that.
The second act opened with a single person on the stage, and what?
Yes sir. it is no other than Henry Mason standing before the mirror
combing his hair. Do you suppose he doesn't know the curtain is
up? But oh yes, he does. He would comb his hair if he were in
A maid brought a letter to him and there was Muriel Geltz on
the stage! Hester hastened to say that she meant to tell us before,
that Muriel had lost her position at Penny's and gone on the stage.
Then there were some strong men's stunts and again we recognized
a member of our class of ' 24! Our big robust Ed Reum!
The play closed with a song by the chorus girls and a feature
dance by our old friend Inez Pankow.
How glad we were that we went to the theater! ,
But the play was over and we looked around us and espied Joe
Wood sitting in the very last row. We greeted him and asked what
he was doing.. He answered that he came to the show every night in
the hopes that he could find a girl that interested him but so far Lady
Luck hadn't even winked at him.
As we were leaving the theater a small boy came running along
shouting " daddy! " He sat down near the front of the theater during
the performance. I wondered who it could be and asked Fred if he
knew. He placed his thumbs under his arms, swung back on his heels
and answered very proudly, " That's Frederick Junior! "

In 1921 we, the present juniors of Niles High School, entered
the portals of the Senior High. We had long mingled with the upper
classmen in our wanderings to and from classes but to be numbered
among the great brings a joy of which a High School Freshman. only
he, may boast.
Our duty for the first six or eight months lay only in the extremely
difficult task of looking as "green" as we really were. By the time
wc reached the ninth grade the playful Seniors had fully satisfied
their sanguine desire to observe dignified Freshmen absorb pins and
climb trees, for all of which we were duly thankful.
Being wholly ignorant of the mania for parties with which all of
the upper classes were obsessed, we brought the wrath of the Senior
High upon our innocent heads by the delay in giving a party until our
The one and only notable event of our Sophomore year was the
class meeting which we held. Our class advisors, Miss Mackay. Miss
Ryno, and Mr. jackson, announced to us above the din and glamour
that Bob Burns. Bill Stevens, and Mary Burns had been elected our
class officers. Of course there is not a doubt but that the "Sophs"
could have conducted themselves nobly if the "Freshies" hadn't at-
tempted to break up the meeting. VVe were not allowed to hold another
meeting that year as the faculty were afraid that the State Militia was
not quartered near enough to quell the riot. Miss Ryno and Miss
Mackay both left Niles High the next year because the strain of being
our advisors was fast breaking down their health.
At the beginning of our junior year we retrieved our good reputation
by giving a Halloween party to the H. S. Then shortly after the party
we were again the center of attractiong our junior pins and rings had
arrived! There was much discussion as to the relative merits of this
and last year's rings, but we are still firm in the conviction that our's
are far superior.
The last semester held the most important events of the seasong the
junior play to which we all looked forward with the greatest interest,
and the Junior "Hop" and banquet which every Junior class must give
the Seniors whether they descive it or not.
Surely from this brief account of our activities it may be seen that
the Junior class is the most illustrious in High School.

History of the Sophomore Class
By Sheridan Cook.
At the first meeting of the class. otiicers were elected. The honor
or the presidency fell to Sheridan Cook. X'Voman Suffrage could not
piedominate, but was able to secure second honors ifor one of its mem-
hers, consequently Bessie Vogelsang was elected vice-president. VVhat
would a class be without a blonde? The Sophomores did not care to
experiment, hence elected Lucille Bachman as secretary. After an
unsuccessful attempt to securc the leadership for their party, the fair
sex came back and made a clean sweep of the remaining offices con-
cluding the election by electing Betty ,Iauch class treasurer.
Sinking almost as low in thc minds of the "Uppers" as the Freshmen,
we decided to take desperate means to gain recognition from them.
And did we do it? Honest. folks, those who didn't come to the Soph
party are still weeping over their misfortune. The meanest trick of
the year was to remind a country lad and lassie that they were snowed
in January the twenty-fifth, the night of our party. It was a hard
time party, and believe me everything was hard but the sandwiches.
Y 'u forgot the price of admission as soon as you saw the decorations of
wearing apparel "clothes lined" all over the gym and instantly felt hard
enough to fight Firpo ll. Lucky number dances were the leading
features of the program, a box of candy being given away after every
dzmce. For some little time there had been a dispute as to who the best
dancers in the school were. The Sophs came to the rescue by offering
a prize fox-trot contest at this party. The judges were the class advisors,
Misses Wennerblad and Jacobson and Mr. Jackson, and in their wisdom
awarded the decision to Bessie Vogelsang and Willfam Stevens. After
dancing and eating threatened to become monotenous. Mr. Nichols came
to the rescue with some high class oratory. Nothing need be said here
.il his ability to entertain except for the benefit of the few unfortunates
who were unable to be present. tHe will be in demand at all future
parties. but let it not be forgotten who introduced him.
Don't cry. dear Seniors. NVhen we give our .party next year. we
Amy, through our tenderness of heart, invite the Alumni.

Education began with the classics, but with the progress and ad-
vancement of the times. education has been forced to recognize the
needs of commerce. Schools must not only train their pupils how
to live. but also how to earn a living. Business today is more than
a profit seeking ventureg it symbolizes service. Commercial education
today has higher standardsg its guiding hand is produrfion-tfolume and
To provide a student with a tool to earn his own living necessitates
proper equipment. Niles cannot afford to invest in more oflice equip-
ment than the needs of the community warrant. The commercial
department can help in recruiting apprentices and in giving them a
start. The job of turning this raw material into skilled workmen be-
longs to the .American employer and always will belong there. No
commercial department can fill the demands of the American employer
without being well equipped. The Niles commercial department is
increasing its equipment to fulfill this demand.
The standards of the commercial department are very high. Actual
business procedure in the business world governs the standard: not
of one type of business organization, but of the average. The business
world calls for people who not only know things. but do them. A
student must not only master the subject. but must know how to reason,
build and produce with the minimum outlay of time and energy. All
these factors enter into measuring a student's ability to meet the
The commercial course is liberal and the student has an opportunity
to take the following commercial studies together with other subjects
to enrich his education: Commercial Arithmetic, Commercial Geogra-
phy, Business English, Salesmanship, Economics. Shorthand, Type-
writing, Oflice Training and Bookkeeping. The present equipment of
oliice machines and devices consists of: Ten typewriters. one Mimeo-
graph. one Multigraph and one Mimeoscope. .-'X Burroughs .fXdding'
Machine is used in conjunction with the main oflice.
The commercial department has saved the administration a con-
siderable printing expense through the use of the Mimeograph, Multi-

work. Letter heads, blanks, postal cards. drawings, maps, invitations.

'l'he football season of 1023 brought to Niles, a great disappoint-
mentg the kind least expected and more dreadful because of it's un-
XVith many of the boys of the squad of 'ZZ returned and a
promising supply of Freshmen. prospects pointed to a team capable of
dominating the best in Michigan, However. such was not the case.
The team lost game after game, winning only those contests with
weaker elevens. XVhen the season closed. the team had scored but
three victories. No one was discouraged. only the natural bitterness
of defeat lingered. Un the other hand the student body rose in one
accord to the defense of its team.
ls not the glory and wonder of such school spirit and enthusiasm
a far greater moral victory than the group that has only a winning
team to support and fails miserably when the test of spirit arises?
Taking all into consideration, would you consider the past foot-
ball season a failure? No. you would not! You could not! For a
far greater victory was the reward. .X true victory prompted by the
underlying principles of man's affection and loyalty, the determination
of a conviction.

VVith the conclusion of Fall activities at Plym Park Coach VValker
tuined to the task of placing a strong basketball team in the Held.
Irregardless of the fact that four members of the 1922-23 championship
quintet had graduated the student body was optimistic as to the strength
of the new "Court Machine."
In the early games Niles was represented by various combinations of
pi-'yers the best clique not having been ascertained. However, after a
fcw contests Coach Walker narrowed his squad to twenty-five and
started to work zealously in an effort to drill into his charges the fine
points of the game. He gained results but it was impossible to change
a. green crew into a consistent winner in a season. The team won but
live games of the twenty scheduled. However the fact that the
Zwergelites were only outscored on an average of 21 to 17 per game
reveals their true merit.
Ten men were awarded the basketball "N" for their loyal service
and efforts. Clayton McCoy, the captain, lost because of having played
eight semesters and Edward Zwergel, his successor, are the only letter
men to graduate this year. Although the loss of these experienced and
able players will naturally be keenly felt the abundance of material re-
turning to school will aid in filling the gaps. Loren Dittmar, Lothaire
Hall. Harry Huss, and Lawrence Kendrick, forwardsg Lyle Giddings.

mar and Giddings these fellows have two more years to wear a high
XYe opened the season away from home and it was certainly a joyful
debut. The brand new "Maroon and VVhite" aggregation traveled to
Edwardsburg and pulled the "Veni,'vidi, vici" stunt to perfection. The
deal was 36 to 6 with McCoy holding a hand of six deuces and a

thc "Recruit Special" romped through the Kazoo College Reserves in the

On December the twenty-first the Alumni came along and ailmin-
istered a 32 to 12 trouncing. This inevitable .occurance did more
damage than was immediately noticeable though. It threw the team off
if-a stride and started a severe slump. In the first game of the New
Year the Elkhart Five dished out a 14 to 9 defeat in a slow contest.
Ou the seventh, the squad went to Mishawaka and after a terrible
first half came back and gave the Hoosiers a scare. The lndianians
had a big margin though and managed to win 27 to 24. McCoy scored
fifteen points, twelve the last half. The Mishawaka "come-back" gave
the team overconfidence in the next game with Buchanan. Conse-
quently, before we came to. the visitors had slipped one over on us
'18 to 17 .... Please omit flowers.
Then 'came Bennie Oosterboan, the .Xll-American Interscliolastic
center. and his Muskegon buddies. They only stayed long enough to
pile up a 35 to 12 victory and march on. St. Joe came down next to
repay us .for the trio of terrible lacings of the previous year and suc-
ceeded. It was only after an overtime period however, featured by two
mul-Hoor ringers from Captain Bob Barlow. Down at Plymouth the
team fought gamely under its new Captain, Eddy Zwergel, but was
ovtclassed 28 to 14.
Mishawaka came across the State-line on january the thirtieth and
got a "knock-down" to Harry Huss. Whether the acquaintance was
greeted with pleasure or not remains a mystery but anyway the pair
of goals he looped 'could hardly be classed as lucky. Niles won with
th ,se four points after a hard, uphill fight. The score was 23 to 22.
February the second gave Niles 'f victory over the South Bend Evan-
geiists, 39 to 15. '
XYe journeyed to Muskegon Hefghts and Grand llaven for a pair
of games over the following week end. Although we led in one and
were only a point behind in the other at the beginning of the final
quarters we lost both games. The scores were 23 to 12 and 21 to 12.
After the return of the prodigal. Eau Claire took an overtime game from
us 20 to 17. Referee Peterson of Buchanan starred. On the nineteenth
vv-X played Buchanan in the return game and lost by the usual point 16
to 15. Three days later Plymouth came up and repeated its earlier
victory, this time 27 to 12. ln the return confiict at St. 'loe we were
beaten 20 to 11.
The fifth and last victory of the season came on the seventh of
March. Plainwell opposed us and was held basketless. Niles copped
25 to 5. Eddy Zwergel caged four neat field goals in this game. while
Art Hall was nailing them at guard. In the seasons final we went to
Sturgis and lost 35 to 8.
Niles met Hastings at the Kalamazoo Tourney and was eliminated
24 to 7.

The Reserves can hardly be called the Second Team because Coach
Walker had two teams that were relatively even in strength. In fact,
nearly a score of the squad had experience on both teams before the
season closed. At any rate the Reserves looked good in every game
and finished the winter with seven victories out of eleven fracases for
an average of .636.
The schedule included First Team opponents as well as Second, and
four Independent teams were also on the docket. St. joe was the only
Second Team to gain a decision from the " Woodmen " and that was
caused by overconhdence. The Niles De Molays. the Edwardsburg
First. and the Three Oaks Lightweights were the other teams to cop
the long end of the score.
Berrien Springs High School fell hardest in the rush for victims
by -a 46 to 17 tally. Niles went over forty in one other game also.
Edwardshurg was that unfortunate, getting shoved out 41 to 2.
Spansail was high point man and probably would have won a
letter had it not been for an early season accident. Captain VVood
played a clever game at pivot and was a close second for scoring honors.
Burger, although weak on the floor, was a sure man on the ringers
.Kendrick divided his time on the First and Second teams but when
playing with the Reserves his work was eFI'icient. Shively, Lagoni and
lVeiser were the other members of the squad who played over half-
time and each did great " Court calisthenicsf'

Champions of Southwestern Michigan! Such a title was bestowed
upon our baseball boys last Spring. And well did Coach Jacksons
proteges deserve the honor. Eight consecutive victories and -then in a
post-season game an eleven inning win for the Championship is certainly
a record any high school might be proud of.
Starting the season rather shakily, the Nine soon rounded into
shape and commenced dishing defeats to every team on the schedule.
The heavy hitting., fast fielding and reliable hurling was too much for
Captain Schrump was the hub around which the Niles players were
centered. His spirit was the spirit of the team. VVhen " Hank: "
was hurling the team couldn't be beaten, the word, defeat, was un-
known. Other veterans who were usually in the lineup and always giv-
ing their best were " Eddie " Chambers, " Cappy " Grathwohl. "johnny"
Vogelsang, "Muldoon" McCoy, "Tohm" Farrell and Harold Asmus.
The new men on the squad, most of whom were regulars, and the
foundations of this Spring's aggregation were " Ken " Kendricks.
" Lefty " Austin, " Bunny " Marshall, " junior " Thompson, " Ed "
Reum and " Dub " Nemeth.
-The loss of the first group will be keenly felt by Niles High but it
is believed Coach -lackson will turn out another fast team this year.
XVith Thompson and Reum. two promising pitchers. left, Niles
is well supplied with " Soupbonef' These hurlers, the " vets." and the
large number of candidates already out for practice should go to form
another Blue Ribbon aggregation.
On April the twenty-eighth the Niles team commenced its 1923
schedule of " the great American game " by drubbing VVatervliet 13 to
1. After this practice game the Hjacksonites " toiled earnestly for the
fracas with Mishawaka. The Hoosier Crew was as strong asever and
our lads barely won 12 to 10. Now that the season was under way all
efforts were bent toward sending the dark-horse of the schedule home
with a black eye. And so it happened. After a thrilling pitchers' duel
we vanquished Kalamazoo Central 5 to 2.
VVith three dangerous rivals beaten the boys had yet to feel the
strength of an old rival, Dowagiac. The Cass County " Bludgeoneers "
put in an appearance at Plym Park on May the twenty-third and were
repulsed ll to 7. That day revealed many sensations. During that
dreadful seventh inning, in which Niles scored eleven runs, Brenner
made his first hit of the season, Kendricks socked a homer with two on
base and Captain " Hank " hit a double and a triple in the same inning.
After the Dowagiac massacre the boys journeyed to Kalamazoo and once
again Schrump outpitched Van Eck and we won 3 to 1.

Whats that? Oh yes, we played Dowagiac again and dragged
'em in the mire 10 to 3. Then time brought us to the final game. It
was with Mishawaka and Mark "junior" Thompson let them down
with one hit. Consequently we were victors 7 to O.
Not having been defeated in our end of the District we played a
post-season championship scrap with Sturgis who had been just as
successful. It lasted elevenwinnings as all good games should and
seemed all the better when we won. " Hank ", playing his last game for
N. H. S., won his own game in the eleventh session. With two out and
Brenner on third he laid a perfect hunt down the first base line and it
was all over.

The Year in Retrospect
As another eventful school year draws to a close. students and
teachers look back over the pages that are written in time's memory
book with mingled feelings of satisfaction and regret. Satisfaction
there is that so much has been accomplished of lasting value and among
such pleasant associationsg regret that this year can never come again.
"It has been a very pleasant and harmonious year," says Superinten-
dent Haisley, to whose successful policies much of the credit is due.
'Well trained teachers, who can and do enter into the life of the com-
munity in a way to gain respectg self-reliant students, a splendid school
equipment, and intelligent co-operating parents and school board make
a combination that can hardly fail to produce harmony and success.
There have been very few unpleasant events during the school year.
and these of minor consequence.
,The health of the student body, which is of first importance to
success and a pleasant year, has been very ably guardedby the services
of a fulltime school nurse, Miss Hannah Ackerman. Thanks to her
watchfulness, there have been no epidemics of contagious disease in the
school this year, and incipient troubles have been checked. The physical
directors, Mr. Walker and Miss Katherine VVennerblad have suc-
cessfully co-operated with their classes in hygiene, and in the gym-
nasium. The new building, with its modern sytem of heating ventilating,
well lighted rooms and sanitary condition has also safeguarded the
health of all.
The Senior High School achieved a national reputation for thrift,
being one of a few schools having nearly one hundred per cent of their
students making weekly savings deposits. Six advisories expected to
finish the year with a one hundred per cent average and the others were
not far behind. Board of Control members supervised and encouraged
In athletics the school had an "off" year, so far as victories were
concerned but the characteristic Niles fighting spirit was never beaten
After inspection, the high school was placed again on the approved
list of thestate university, and continued membership granted in the
North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges. the
highest possible ranking for a school of this kind.
State and federal inspectors also approved the vocational courses
for girls in home economics under the Smith-Hughes law, stating that
our school was one of the best in Michigan in this respect. A new
course in Home Nursing. under an approved Red Cross Nurse, was
added to the departments work this year. Miss Thomson. head of
the Home Economics department, won much favorable comment for
her management of the new cafeteria where noonhour lunches were
served daily to from 75 to 150 students and teachers. Many under-
weight students were also served with milk each morning.
Art students. having five full periods a week th-is year. found time.
under Miss Rysdorp's tutelage. to make many attractive posters for use
during important school events, and gained much practical experience
for themselves, as well as aiding the school.

The High School Band was re-organized last September with the
opening of the school year. At that time, when William Mathews.
the director called the first rehearsal. eighty members were enrolled:
VVallace Stick was made drum major, and with much enthusiasm
the boys began practice on their horns. By the middle of October the
enrollment increased to one hundred and four membersg eight dif-
ferent kinds of instruments being represented.
The band has. at all times. been one of the most popular organiza-
tions. Its appearance at football and basket ball games was always
greeted with enthusiasm and much favorable comment. Our band has
also appeared on several occasions aside from the regular- student
activities. They welcomed the Grand Rapids VVholesalers to Niles on
their annual visit and were presented with a handsome American flag
by that organization. And we all remember when the band invaded
South Bend by means of several trucks one fine day last October, the
occasion being the South Bend Centennial Celebration. After that
hilarious day the boys returned to Niles to spend the night in wild
VVe are justly proud of the band, which is one of the largest and
best in the mid-west. It is a student organization which receives our
hearty support and encouragement. And when the next "Band Bounce"
is presented it is going to be "heaps better'n last year" if B. M. doesn't
tell fairy tales. john Barman
Under the eliicient leadership of " Bill " Mathews, the official
Band Master, the orchestra has made rapid progress this year and
much interest has been shown in the organization.
The orchestra has appeared on various occasions before school
organizations. lt played some very line selections. between acts at the
Senior Play. At the Minstrel Show given by the Boys Glee Club the
orchestra who were dressed as farmers. as were Si Plunkert's Band.
played the accompaniment for the singers. The efforts of the orchestra
have been so much appreciated by the public that it was invited to
play for the Rotary and Exchange Clubs when they were served irithe
School Cafeteria. The grades were also grateful to the orchestra for
their service in helping them present " Mother Goose Melodies." The
orchestra will also assist in the presentation of the " Band Bounce "
and the junior Play, two important features of the school year.
The organization owes much of its success to Mr. Mathews who
has given his unstinted efforts toward the improvement of the orchestra.

D The Senior Play
"Secret Service," a drama of the Civil War, was presented by the
Class of' '24 in the Auditorium December eleventh. The unusually large
audience accorded it as great a success as "Peg O' My Heart," the
Comedy staged by the same class in its Junior year.
Under the wonderful coaching of Miss Helen Platt the large Cast
was able to give a flawless presentation of William Gillette's Southern
romance. Jerome Wood, playing the part of Captain Thorne, a Yankee
spy in Richmond at the time the Confederate Capitol was about to fall
before the attack of the Union forces, was certainly "in" the role, an
extremely difficult one that very few could have filled as well. Marguerite
Parent, as Edith Varney, sweetheart of Captain Thorne, was the true
"Daughter of the Confederacy." Her efforts to save as well as aid
her lover from the clutches of Arrelsford fEdward Zwergelj. the
War Department ofificer and unsuccessful suitor for her hand, drew
admiration -from the audience. Wilfred Varney and Carolyn Mitford,
characters skillfully impersonated by jack Secor and Esther Scheibach.
added their share of humor and pathos to the situation. Russell llart
as General Randolph, Margaret Moon as Mrs. Varney, Lyle Turton as
Henry Dumont and Ardis Baker as Miss Kittredge were other members
of the immediate supporting cast. David Pammell and Margaret
Miller made almost perfect "Darky" servants. The remainder of the
Cast consisted of officers and messengers of the Confederate Army.
These characters executed their parts with no small degree of efficiency
giving the production a finished appearance. The Southern "Greys"
were: Frederick Burger, Arthur Morley, Clayton McCoy, Henrv
Mason, Richard Otstot, Frederick Powell, Donald Brown, Frederick
Fisher. Dominic Nemeth, Roderick Forrester, Joseph Krajci, Harold
Eycleshymer and Dwayne Clevering.
ln conclusion it might be fittingly said that "Secret Service" was
just another tribute toward the patience, cooperation and loyalty of
both Miss Platt and those with whom she has toiled, in the presentation
of Class Plays.
On Friday evening, April 25, theijuniors presented their annual
play in the Auditorium of the High School. "Stongheart," an American
comedy drama in four acts, written by VVilliam C. de Mille. is different
in every respect from the class plays which have been offered to the
public recently, and because of its novelty, it was especially well received.
The action of the play takes place at Columbia University. Here
the audience was given an intimate view of the varying scenes of
college lifeg its fun, its enthusiasms. its devotion to sport, and its
tragedies. Interest centers about several members of the Varsity foot-
ball team. "Stongheart,', the leading character, is the son of an Indian
chief, a Carlyle graduate, and a star half-back on the team. This dif-
ficult role was well portrayed by Robert Burns. Esther lforler, as
"Dorothy Nelson," the girl he loves and gives up to help his people,
played with reserve and dignity a part that might have been misin-
terpreted in less capable hands. Alice Platt and Henry Towar, as

- The Black-Faced Minstrels
The first entertainment to be held in the Auditorium for the school
year 1923-24 was the Minstrel Show given by the Senior High School
Boy's Glee Club who were ably assisted by David Bennett and the
High School Band.
With a blare of brass and a burst of song the curtain rose on
a merry circle of ebony-faced comedians. This was the first Black-
faced Minstrel ever produced in the Niles High School, but we hope,
not the last.
The program opened with the school "Loyalty Song" to which much
Life was added by the minstrel drill which the boys executed.
Lloyd Young as Interlocutor introduced the two Premier End Men.
Lyle Turton and Jerome Wood, and from that moment on the crowded
Auditorium was kept in an uproar. Others in the circle who contributed
their share toward the fun of the evening were Cleo VVideman, Freder-
ick Marshall, Henry Towar, Donald P. Brown, Dick Otstot, Clayton
McCoy and David Pammell. Nvith their songs, dances and jokes as
well as banjo numbers it would be hard to pick any one star as all these
fellows proved themselves to be stars. Dave and Bunny showed that
when it came to dancing they were hard to beat.
The Band won great applause with their peppy music and grotesque
David Bennett, in his fifteen minutes of jokes, songs and dances,
was heartily welcomed back to the Auditorium.
The short afterpiece consisted of a Gypsy Dance by Maxine Knott
and a character dance by Frederick Marshall.
Others who took part in the Minstrel were Dominic Nemeth, Julius
Johnson, Frederick Kiger, Ralph Augusovitz, Lyle Giddings. Frederick
Fisher, and Vernon Stowe.
The proceeds of this together with that of other musical entertain-
ments went toward the new Grand Piano which we have in the
The Lass of Limeric Town
The Lass of Limeric Town was a very pleasing comic opera put
on by the High School Glee Clubs under the excellent direction of
Miss Corrinne Lawton.
The scenes were laid in romantic Ireland in the town of Limeric.
The theme was of a peculiar nature involving many interesting com-
plications. In brief. Capt. Pom VVorthington was betrothed to Rose
because of the expressed wish of their respective fathers and inciden-
tally to replenish the Worthington supply of golden Shekels, as Rose
was heir to her rich uncle's millions. Rose and Betty, her cousin, ex-
change identity and Pom falls in love with Betty, the Lass of Limeric
Town, who later proves to be the real heiress.
Lyle Turton filled the role of Pom in a very realistic manner, while
Betty Jauch as Betty and Helen Kehoe as Rose did their best to
confuse Pom and, as it turned out, themselves as to their real identity.
Frederick Marshall as Judge Hooly proved an excellent guardian
for the two cousins.
Jerome Wood took the part of the amorous lover and gained the
sympathy of the audience long before he did the love of Rose.
Margaret Moon and Lloyd Young portrayed English nobility in the
parts of Sir Charles and Lady XVorthington.
Marguerite Parent and Cleo VVideman were a perfect pair of Irish
Oleta Ostrander as Mrs. O'Flynn and VVallace Stick as Pat
and David Pammell as E. Hicks remind one of all the typical Irish
people one has known.
Peppy musical numbers were offered by the picked chorus and
we are sure all will join in saying that The Lass of Limeric Town
was a great success.
The Year in Retrospect-Continued from Page 62
In the Manual Training department a new course in Home
Mechanics proved attractive to future workers and home owners. VV ith
the approval of the state director of vocational education and the sup-
port of local industries, plans of Supt. Haisley and Mr. jackson for a
metal working and auto-mechanics shop were well advanced as the
Student activities, social and otherwise, were usually well managed.
pleasant and successful this year. Following the policies of the ad-
ministrationg teachers devoted part of their time to the guidance of
these activities and with wise student leadership a great deal of valuable
experience was gained, not to be learned in the classroom. There were
school, class, advisory and classroom organization partiesg basketball
teams from various groups, a chess club, dramatics, debates and musical
and oratorical events. No student was without an opportunity to gain
some experience in activities outside of classwork, and most did find
there were few dull or unprolitable moments left during the year.
One of the most important changes made in classroom work this
year was the inauguration of directed study. The school day was
divided into six periods of about one hour each, with a half hour for
advisory or auditorium activities. Under the new plan, instead of do-
ing most of their studing in the study halls or at home, recitations
were arranged so that a part of the class period could be used for
study under the teacher's direction. In this way many students could
be helped over difficulties and taught how to study by the teacher
best fitted to do it.
The Senior High library was housed in its new quarters this year,
and began a period of usefulness that it had never enjoyed so much
before. Miss Allen wasplaced in charge and by dint of much hard
work, with the assistance of a group of girls from the Senior class.
the books were sorted, classified and catalogued, old or unused copies
being disposed of, and many new ones added.i'l4Miss Coolidge, of the
city library assisted in the catalogueing. so that the students could be
trained in standard library methods. Most of the new books were
acquired by purchase from the Book Fund. derived from the school
book store profits, but some were gifts, notably a fine collection from
Miss Francis Eddy. Magazines and daily newspapers were also sup-
plied. Of interest to prospective college or trade school students was
a large assortment of current catalogues and bulletins from schools
and colleges. The city library gave splendid co-operation to the English,
Public Speaking, Civics and History teachers in supplying reading
lists and reference material not avzylable in the school library.

School opens-although it seems like Friday, the 13th, to some of
us, Mr. ,llaisley tried to cheer us by introducing the new teachers which
terminated into such a pleasure that we agree with Mr. Haisley that
there is something to come back to each year. All the boys say, "Oh!
Gee! they're cute and they're sisters. How do you pronounce their
name? I wonder if they dance?" and many other similar remarks
are Hoating through the air. Miss Platt was conspicuously present
owing to close contact with the crank of her " Dort."
In a week of school enough campaigning has been done, so that we
Seniors feel capable of electing officers and then we begin our heavy
duties by planning a party. Watch us go! l !
Didn't we say, "watch us go F" The Seniors gave the annual
"get-together" party for the hi-school tonight. Excursions to the
woods for decorations, which with the music make the party a success.

Dance, dance, dance,
Everyone does it tonight.
Even the Sophomore can keep in time,
XVithout the least bit of fright.
Advisory parties start with a whoop. And in the advisories we
hear that familiar cry, " why can't we go out of the city limits ?" " VVhat
is there on Island Park? " But anyway, we enjoy the parties. Ask
Bill Iiycleshymer and Fred Burger. How about it XVinnie? Some
fun-seekers sought melons and were nearly caught. Ask Bessie and
Fee how fast they ran down the tracks!
XValker's old cry of " late for practice " has been ringing in the
fellows' ears since football practice began, and so they get there on
time for the Michigan City game. A goodly number of Niles students
either drove their cars or bummed rides, but anyway we got there and
held our own by tying the score 0-0. '

The Junior Americans and the Coop-
p erative Civics' Clubs
Miss VVhalen's Civics II classes, the fourth and the sixth hours.
decided to form clubs, one for each class. ,
At the beginning of the :-emester in January each class elected
officers. Those elected in the fourth hour class were: Henrietta Smith.
presidentg Glenn Mell, vice-president-3 Nellie Eckler, secretary and
treasurer. The ones elected in the sixth hour class were: Lillian Shieb.
presidentg Martha Blake. vice-presidentg Donald shafkey, secretary
Thenof course. each club drew up a constitution. These were
similar. Following are the most important items:
A Article I The names of the clubs shall be the "jun'or Ameri-
cans" fthe fourth hour classjg the "Cooperative Civics Club" fthe
sixth hour classj.
Article II The object of each club was to be better citizens
and to maintain better citizenship in the school.
Article III Every member of the class shall be a member of
the club. .
Article V The officers shall be the president, vice-president.
secretary and treasurer. Miss VVhalen shall act as member exofiicio.
giving needed advice. Officers cannot be reelected. '
Article VII Open meetings shall be held at least once every six
weeks. Business meetings as often as necessary.
The constitution was drawn up by appointed members of the class.
The officers elected did remarkably well.
At the close of the first six weeks came the election of new officers.
They were elected as follows: for the junior Americansg Vivian
Spencer. presidentg Dwight Spencer. vice-presidentg Loretta Mcllonald.
secretary and treasurer. For the "Cooperative Civics Club"g NValter
Utteson, presidentg joseph Bisby, vice-presidentg Mary XVienman. secre-
tary and treasurer.
lVe have had many good limes. Un Feb. l5, the two clubs had a
party which everyone enjoyed. On Feb. 29, Mr. Stone told us about the
local post office and answered many questions. Mr Markley's three
classes were assembled as guests. Then Mr. Markleyslclasses and the
two clubs joined in a splendid St. Patricks party. It was one of the
best of the season. Un March 21. a debate was held between members
of the junior .Nmericans and the Cooperative Civics Club and Mr.
Markley's classes. The question for debate was, Resolved: that all
railroads engaged in interstate traffic should be owned and operated by
the federal government. The result was the defeat of the two clubs.
lVe have learned much through our cooperative efforts. We have
appreciated the simple means of acting out our civic principles. We have
found that our work has been much more interesting done from the
club point of view than just plain class work. '

The Maid of the Golden Slipper
One of the prettiest and most enjoyable events on the junior High
calendar was the presentation of the operetta. "The Maid of the
Golden Slipper." On May 2, the curtain rose on the first scene of thc
familiar story of Cinderella This well-known fairytale lent itself
charmingly to a musical interpretation. The fairies, in their dainty
'gowns of pink, blue, and white gave the proper setting for fairyland.
The operetta closed in the charming Cinderella-like manner with the
discovery of the owner of the slipper and the beautiful maiden, whom
the Prince had so eagerly sought after, and as the curtain descended.
a grand finale by the entire chorus.
Altogether the cast was well chosen. Cinderella, the dainty maiden.
was successfully portrayed by Virginia Schick. The Prince, who so
ardently admired her, was regally acted by Lee Babcock. The hum-
orous element in the play was found in the predicament in which those
jealous, ill-mannered, vain and conceited troublemakers, the step-
sisters found themselves when the Prince refused them in marriage.
These parts were filled by Ruth Hudson and Vivian Exner. Inez
Sheeley very realistically took the part of the step-mother. To form
the background for these were the choruses of lords, ladies. and dainty.
little fairies. We too, felt the wiles of the artful plotter, Cupid, in the
form of Hazel VVelchg and wished that we might have had such a
kind god-mother as Anne Tobin to charm away our cares. Bernice
Hartman, accompanist, played charmingly even the most difficult
selections in the opcretta.
Much credit must be awarded Miss Lawton for her skill in training
the members of the Junior High Glee Club who so successfully enter-
tained their large and appreciative audience.

' Junior High School Banking
Those ot the younger generation have been unjustly termed "spend-
thriftsf' This is especially untrue since the School Banks have come
This system originated at Gashar. Germany in 1820. It was later
introduced into Belgium. England, Italy, Switzerland and other Euro-
pean countries. Today it is used in more than three thousand different
schools throughout the United States.
The method which has proved most efficient in the Niles schools is
the Pass Book method. ln this type one deals directly with the money,
cash received from the pupil being credited on a card arranged for the
purpose. The card is returned to the pupil as a memorandum or
receipt, and the amount is also credited on the account or roll book,
liy whoever is responsible for the money thus collected.
The 'direct type or pass book, which we use. includes any system of
local crigin. The equipment necessary for this plan is HJ signature
card. l2l pass book, Q31 deposit slip. l4j teacher's report. t'5l prin-
:ipa1's report. 165 manila envelope, 175 interest sheet, l8j withdrawal
check and f9j a placard bearing the inscription "Today is Bank Day."
'Withdrawals are not encouraged unless for some specific' item which
the depositor would otherwise berdeprived of. A withdrawal slip is
always necessary and in..some instances a parent must accompany the
one who wishes to withdraw his money or present, in person, the pass
book of the student.
Due to the fact that the details are handled entirely by them. the
pupils have entered whole-heartedly into this idea.
XVe believe to have reached the foundation for thrift teaching bv
coordinating thrift with the regular school subjects.

The bright spot of the Niles High athletics this year was the work
of the basketball team turned out by Coach Markley from junior
High material. VVinning five out of the eight games of the season was
no mean trick, especially when taking into account that four of the
oppos?ng teams were composed of older and more experienced players.
Yet these teams were bathed by the Hashy Hoor work. smooth passing
and close guarding of the Niles youngsters whose team work was above
the average and speaks volumes for Coach Markley's ability.
Before the season was officially started basketball interest was
aroused by the selection of teams of lightweights and heavyweights
and games were played every week for the championship of junior
ll'gh. This gave these beginners in the basketball world a chance
to learn the rudiments of the game and get in shape for a struggle for
places on the team that was to represent the school against those teams
from surrounding territory who had been scheduled for the season.
To start the season the junior High net warriors were sent against
a lightweight crew from the Senior High. A fter a nip and tuck game
the older boys pulled out with a two-point margin. But the junior
High had learned some more basketball and two weeks later they put
it into good practice when they nosed out the lilkhart -I. ll. S. in a hard
Not having become acquainted with the bad effects of over-confidence
the boys had their first taste and were taken into camp by the Mishawaka
F1 eshies as a result, in the next encounter.
By way of diversion this galloping young crew next took on the
Niles Methodists and after blunting the points of their stars gave them
a sound beating. .
After that'romp'the team felt so elated they thought themselves
capable of avenging the defeat at the hands of the Mishawaka Frosh
but weredisappointed when they were only able to creep one point
closer to a win. But no one blamedvthem for they fought their best.
After'a over the Eau Claire Seconds and the repetition of their
earlier win" over Elkhart J. H. S. the game lads of Niles decided to try
their luck at bigger game and scheduled a game with the Eilwardsburg
Varsity net-men. The result was a humorous edition to the Niles-Plain-
well game The small town boys were so completely bathed that they
made not a single tally from the floor.
Altogether a pleasing end to a successful year of basketball compet-
ition. The splendid work of this young team gives heart to those who
were disappointed in the showing of the Senior High Varsity and
brings hope of another championship outfit in the near future.

LONG, LONG AGO
Do you remember way back when,
The old Hi School was our den.
To write out our notes and study hard,
Do you remember back that far?
And we had fun and lots of power
And parties lasted 'til a decent hour,
And we took HER home in our dad's car
Do you remember back that far?
Can you remember those real good times.
And once when you wrote those silly rhymes
And gave them to her, and she treasured them so,
Remember that? 'Twas a long time ago.
Then there were no flappers, no shebas, no sheiks
ln fact there was nothing pertaining to freaks,
And all the scholars were at least up to par,
Can you remember back THAT far?
And the girls didn't use so much powder and junk
And didn't always tell you a lot of bunk
But were modest, and laclylike, pretty and true
I'll bet you can't remember that, can You?
But now it's all changed, nothings the same,
The girls are the shebas who've won much fame.
The boys are the sheiks who in gaudy dress,
Strut around and attempt to look their best.
The New School now is the wonderful place.
XVhere we walk to and fro with a smiling face,
Because of a rule by which we abide.
Afraid to step for fear we'll slide
VVe can't whistle, nor can we yell,
ln the halls of Ye Hi School where now we dwell
But when we get ont, 'biding by no rule.
XVe doubtless will miss that old Hi School.

IF I WERE KING
If I were king
Of this High School
Iiach one would be free
There would be no rule.
VVhen one was tardy
That would be all right
I'd give him a pink slip
Instead of a white.
They can't all get here
XVhen the clock strikes eight
You knozc' some of flu' darlings
Might have been out late...
If they didn't study
I'cl not bawl them out
But I'd take it sweetly
And be called a "good scout."
XVhen they wanted to go
Downtown for a time
I'd tell them to go
And not call it a crime.
I'd move a piano
Right out in the hall
Xnd tix up an orchestra
And that ain't all.
I'd let them dance
Till their feet were so sore
T hat theyfd really get tired
Before the year was o'er.

TO VAIN VVOMAN
In last year's Tattler an article entitled, "Conceited Man," was
printed. It denounced and ridiculed Man as wholly of a conceited,
selfish and inconsistent nature. giving him no credit for his few worthy
deeds. True, Man is conceited, he is selfish, he is inconsistentg in fact
he is, perhaps, all that he should not be. But, with all of his infernal
discrepencies. is he alone the Idol of Evil?
Assuredly not! Standing beside H-im in his degradation is another.
One just as much at error as the so-called "hair-brained" Sheik. Woman
has her faults and they are as far reaching and tenacious as those of
the opposite sex.
She is vain, she is selfish, she stoops to Hirting as an instrument of
attracting the over-blamed fool, called Man. She is forced to use
"make-up" to compete with others of her kind in the race for the so
despised, though greatly demanded male. She too smokes, drinks,
enjoys hilarious parties all for material pleasure, and then, after all
is done, crawls out and points an accusing finger at her escort and says,
"There is the source of my downfall!" '
Can this be theharvest of religion and education?
Where is the old-fashioned,,simple, home-loving and unselfish girl
who gave to our forefathers the inspiration of spiritual as well as
social conquest, not lust for evil? Must we give up? Must love. purity
and simplicity go forever. to be succeeded by the doctrines of such
organizations as the "I. D. I's.?"
Pray God that this may never be! Give us back the fair, sweet maid
of yesterday Love will conquer. The selfish, conceited, vain man
and woman MUST andVVILL GO! -Syndicate '24-

Uur Principal we dearly love,
His hair is black as ink
lln contrast with the King of Kings
Whose locks are nice and pinkj
Our principal is meek and just.
Yet seems to know no fears.
He stamps down those mozaic floors
As if we had no ears.
Those dread rheumatic pains could never
Bring him to his knees.
But then he never washed his car.
In just his B. V. Dfs.
His watchful eye and iron hand
Remind us of the rhyme,
"I have a little shadow hanging
Round me all the time."
l-lis soothing tones and playful ways
I never can forgetg
His path is strewn with thorns and tacksg
His life is hard, and yet.
W'ith all the toil he has to face,
VVith all his grief and cares.
Heaven has no principles, that
VVith our Principal compare.

DAY DREA MI NG -
I had a dream the other day that never was dreamt before.
I dreamt I went to heaven and met the Class of '24
They all wore knitted nigh: shirts and most of them had harps.
But Clevering, Fisher, Peg and Gert looked like a bunch of carps.
Because their knitted night shirts fit like the Calsomine.
.-'Xnd for the harps, a tambourine was all that they could find.
And seated, on a Comet playing "Please Don't Take Me Home"
lVere Freddie Powell and Krajci with a life and saxophone.
While standing on a cloud-bank in a very hot debate.
W'as St. Peter and fWho elsej you guessed it, Pammell, sure as fate.
He was trying to tell St. Peter that the Rheumatiz he had.
Vilas from sleeping on the stars without a Sloanes electric pad.
.-Xnd as I went from cloud to star, I met each girl and boy.
That left Niles Hi. in '24, except Muldoon McCoy,
Inquiring of St. Peter, why he held no place on High
I-Ie answered, "Cause he punched a goodly saint right in the eye."
" 'Twas a saint from Benton Harbor." "You've said enough." I cried
"He had that weakness while he lived. it followed when he died."
And then I wakened with a startg bright gladness filled my soulg
I knew despite Mul's lust for blood, he's spared from shoveling coal.
l. VVhy Schuey can't get a date.
2. VVhat the attraction is at Kingstoifs.
3. VVhat all the fellas do at Rix.
4. Vllhy Lloyd Young declares he just loves Bertrand..
5. VVhy McCoy's orchestra doesn't go on the stage.
6. XVhy everyone can't rua this school.
THERIYS ONE IN EVERY ADVISORY
1. The "May I borrow your compact ?" person.
2. The person who says "Wliy, I haven't looked at it," but always
pulls down a big A.
3. That "VVho has a comb" person.
4. The person who never can go to a party on a certain night and
always wants to postpone it until he can go.
5. The Advisor's "Pet,"
6. The "Have you your work - may I copy it F" person.
There was a young fellow named Stick.
VVho should work with a shovel and pick.
At the bakery he makes
Doughnuts and cakes.
But best he makes mortar for bricks.
There is a young man named Jerome
Who they say is never at home.
And also it's plain
That it gives him a pain,
To go anywhere alone.
The time you spilled your glass of water down at Rix.
The night you were a wall-flower at a Parish House dance.
'When Miss Lawton says that you shoulcln't study in general assem
bly and she looks at YOU.
VVhen you're just in seventh heaven amusing the girls, and the
assembly teacher tells you to move to a front seat.
VV hen Mr. Macdonnell makes a speech and directs his remarks
VVhen you have to put your gum in the basket-especially when
your best girl is in the room.
Fred Austin: "VVhat is a garage ?"
Mr. Mathews: "A place where you keep your horse and buggy."

Mr. Mathews to Bill lic: "XVould you cry if you spilled a half-pint

Dave Pammell : l lnterruptingj "No, but he would if he spilled a half-

We Prefer to Serve
the Public Well
A store of everyday advantages like this, is care-
fully organized and conducted. It serves faithfully
and with equal fairness to all.
It is easy to hold "hip'hip hurrah sales" with
bankrupt stocks, manufactured remnants and other
least desirable merchandise, but that is not our
idea of a dependable store.
We prefer serving people well with goods they
want-fresh, new, of good quality and at prices
so reasonable that buyers take them away before
they can grow old in our Store.
