Senior Obituary 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 fulfilled expectations. 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.

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 Theater. - 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 remained single. 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? " 32 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 told him. " 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 Dances. 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- one could. 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 33 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 church. 1 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!

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 Junior year. 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. ALICE PLAT1' '25 38 19HHH HHHIHN H H H H H HHHH I HH!

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. 42 The Tattler 43 19 I lllll lll llll'lllIIllllfllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ll I I IFIlllllllllllIl!!IllllIllllllllllllllillllllllllllllllll ll lll l lllll ll .llll,lllll24 Commercial Department 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 lll't'1H'fll'-X' combined. 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 standard. 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- graph and Mimeoscope. Students in Utiice Training do most of the work. Letter heads, blanks, postal cards. drawings, maps, invitations. letters, practically every type of printed mafter is duplicated on these machinesg sometimes as many as 5,000 copies being duplicated at a run. The following gives the total output of the machines and devices in use this year: Mimeograph and lvlimeoscope,-47,180 copiesg Multi- graph,-Z7,000 copiesg Miscellaneous Typing, -4,443 copiesg Hecto- graph.-Z,224 copiesg a total .of 80,847 copies. lf these copies were placed end to end, the line would reach from Niles. Michigan to Mishawaka, Approximately l5.000 copies have been run oil' for business men. jerry H.

" '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- expectedness. 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. lt is our team, the best in the world because it is ours: and never for a moment should we cease 'to support it.

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. Arthur Hall and Leland Roskay, guardsg and Roger Mattix, centerg are the undergraduates receiving monograms. 1Vith the exception of Ditt- mar and Giddings these fellows have two more years to wear a high school uni-form. 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 pair of aces. Oh yes, they used a pinochle deckl. Four nights later thc "Recruit Special" romped through the Kazoo College Reserves in the annual method. 22 to 16. This made it fifteen straight victories and a total of fifty-one wins out of fifty-two games. continued page 52 50 19IIII I IIII IIII III NN" 'IIIII' The Tattler 'I I XY.XI,KI-ZR, llmzwlm KI,UI'I"I'INSII.IN, NI IL, III I IIIIL I Il llama. .X IIJIII.

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. 52 llllllll Wffhe Tattler I 24 19 IIHIIHHI XY.XI.KIili, 4'..1.I-11 limi' K lf-14 rs 14' 'elf-1-' ' U X I IQTHNIVI :N Nl 3.

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' SCHEDULE Niles 41. .Edwardsburg lsts ...... 2 Niles 46..Berrien Springs lsts ...17 Niles 25..South Bend Vocationals 20 Niles l8..Edwardsburg lsts ...... 24 Won 7.

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 the opposition. 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. continued page 58 V' 56 A 19IIl llllllllll ll ll lll ll ll ll l lll lll ll l llllllllhlb I Illlllllllllllllllllllllllllll llll ll l ll ll Ill llll lllllllll Illil I Il llllll N124 19 The Tattlerww 1 H124 Player .Xustin .Xsmus III'K'IIl1I'I' Clmmlrers Ifurrcll IS1':1tI1wuI1I Iic-mlrick K I :n'sImII N I CI 'I my NI-nu-tlm RI-um SCIIFIIINIJ 'I'lnm1psIm Vugclszlng NII.IiS 'l'I VI' XI 9 I.I1 ..u nun, .

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.

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 the work. In athletics the school had an "off" year, so far as victories were concerned but the characteristic Niles fighting spirit was never beaten down. 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. continueu page 72 62 1 I N W , HN W MM Mlllllllil IlHH,NHHH W W I L HHWHHHHHIII The Board of Control Kzarcy R.

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 rejoicing. 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 The Orchestra 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.

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. Junior Play 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.

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 costumes. ' 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 Auditorium. 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. 70 19lllllllIIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllillllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll1lIl1llilllllIIIIllllllllllllllllllIIIIIIIllllllllIIlIIIllllllllll24 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 peasant sweethearts. 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 year closed. 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. 1 The Tattler 72 The Tattler ' ' Calendar lilllll1lHlll'iIl ll llll Illl lllllllll lIIlllIllIlI1llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll I lillllilllnllllllllllll ll lll ll lll ll lll lll lll llllllllllllllll llllll 4 as I tt ace s..

XXXXX The Calendar September 4- 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."

September 29 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.

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 .uid treasurer. 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. ' DoRo'rI-iv Ii.

"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.

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.

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 faught game. 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.

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.

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!

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. NVE VVONDIER l. VVhy Schuey can't get a date. 2.
