The Senior Class of ,26 gratefully dedieates this
issue of "THE TATTLERQ' to Miss Hilah I.. Allen in
recognition of the high esteem and deep regard in
which we hold her.
Coming to Niles High School in 1904. Miss Allen
has consecrated the best years of her life and di-
rected all her energies toward the upbuilding and
interests of this institution. She has been not only
a splendid and inspiring teacher, but a confident and
understanding friend. Her striking personality has
gained respect and love for her, both within and
without the school. She has taken a keen interest
in all social as well as educational functions, and
through various avenues has spread a great influence
for character building.
We sincerely regret that the school should lose
so valuable a faculty member who will always be
identified with everything noble and fine.
It is a privilege for the Class of '26 to make pub-
lic acknowledgment of her worth, by dedicating this
UTATTLEIV' to Miss Allen.

To the Seniors
By MARY SOPHIA POWER
Thou Senior rich wilh knowledge greal,
How sad and mournful is lhy fale,
For lhou musl leave lhese walls of slone,
To lhinlc and acl for lhyself alone.
The lime has come when lhou musl yo.
And lo lhe world lhy knowledge showq
No more will leachers beg lhee work,
Nor admonish lhee when lhou dosl shirlf
Four long years lhou hasl dreamed ahead
To lhe time when of lhee il could be said,
"He's a Senior, dignijied and bold,
His place is one I'd gladly hold."
Thy dream has now al lasl come lrue,
A dijferenl field is oped anew,-
Thy years of play have reached an end,
Thy mind lo real worlf lhou mnsl bend.
Thou Senior filled wilh earnesl :esl
To do always lhy very besl,
'Tis hoped lhy life shall ever be.
A source of praise lo Niles and lhee.

HE ruggcd old ship which carricd thc class of 1926 ovcr thc 'tlhree
R" rccfs arrivcd in Port High School, Scptcmhcr ht. 1923, with a crcw
of t'rightcncd and shakcn "Frcshics" who wcrc pulling thcmsclvcs to-
gcthcr, prcccdcnt to anothcr long and cvcn morc dangcrous voyagc ovcr
thc Sophomorc Scas. YVL' had begun our cruisc hy sailing through thc
cahn Straits of .lunior High, whcrc thc watcr was tinc, but as wc ncarcd
Iligh School Locks wc struck rough wcathcr. Somc of our crcw became
scasick. and a fcw fcll ovcrhoard to hccomc cngulfcd in thc XVhirlpools
of Lifc. At cach port wc addcd sailors, so that by thc timc wc sailcd
into thc Xilcs lligh School lflarhor, wc numhcrcd largcr than thc crcw
on any ship prcvious to ours.
As in all harbors, il was ncccssary to procurc a hclmsman to guidc
lhc ship safcly into port. 'l'hcrcforc wc hcld a convocation and clcctcd
Shcridan Cook as Skippcr, whilc Bessie Vogclsang, Lucillc Baclnnan.
and Bctty Jauch colnposcd thc rcst of our ship's otliccrs.
On cach up-to-datc ship, thcrc must bc solnc amuscmcnt for thc
crcw and passcngcrs, Thc managcmcnt thcrct'orc planncd, for January
25th, a "Hard Timcs Party", and invitcd gucsts from lhc Junior and
Scnior llccts which wcrc in porl at thc samc lime.
By Junc, thc good old Sophomorc Ship had rcachcd thc cntrancc
of thc Junior Sca, and although thcrc wcrc a fcw cascs of Hook Sickncss,
nothing of a morc scrious naturc was rcportcd. YYc anchorcd hcrc for
a fcw wccks, howcvcr, in ordcr to talcc ncw olliccrs on hoard, hcforc lhc
voyage across thc .lunior Sca. llarold Logan took ovcr thc XVhccl with
llarold Van Tasscl and lit-tty Jauch as his ahlc assistants. licforc sail-
ing, our cicw on hoard lhc Scnior Ship gavc a "Gcl Acquaintcd Party".
A fcw wccks latcr thc .lunior crcw in turn gavc a "Hallowc'cn Hop"
which was a dccidcd succcss, for thhcrc was plcnty of dancing and plcnty
Grt-at cxcitcmcnt was causcd on hoard whcn a cargo of rings was
piclccd up which thc crcw adoptcd as lhcir hadgcs for the rcst of thc
cruisc. 'l'hc trip, othcrwisc, was uncvcntful until ncar thc cnd of thc
voyagc, whcn amuscmcnt was providcd hy sclcct mcmhcrs ol' our pas-
scngcrs in thc form of a .lunior Play, "'l'hc Charm School", which was
considcrcd a succcss linancially as wcll as dramatically. Closcly fol-
lowing this, wc gavc a magniliccnt hanquct followcd hy a dancc, which
provcd to hc a tonic for all sickncsscs cndurcd hy thc sailors. Just

HIS is station N. H. S. now broadcasting.
"The benefit of our program tonight will, we hope, be evidenced
in two directions: to the people of Niles, Michigan, it will be a proof
of the collectibility of the 369.25 daily given the students of that educa-
tional plantg and to people all over the world, an instance of the nuln-
ber of truly great persons turned out by a now famous high school.
"Their annual reunion is being held in the magnificent reception
room of the Niles Hotel, built fourteen years ago, but still the pride of
the middle west.
"As the toastmaster, Hon. Ralph Augusowitz, president of the l. YY.
XY., the A. F. of I... and member of various other labor organizations.
introduces each personage, the honored one will bow. Mr. Augusovitfs
sonorous voice is already clamoring for admission. XVe now turn the
program over to him."
"Ladies and Gentlemen! The lirst individual to be greatly honored
tonight is, perhaps, one of the most widely known persons of all the
world. His annual salary is thirteen times as large as that of the presi-
dent of the United States. Meet Mr. Knute Habenicht, the foremost pro-
fessional football player of all the world.
"Associated with him on this team of all stars are Mr. Robert
Harger, all American tackle. and Mr. Vance Cooper, now scintillating
at end. The great coach and manager of this team is Mr. Charles Cra-
bill, also a football luminary. Speaking about football, when the 'All
Stars, played the 'NVildcats' at Denver, the host was Mrs. Blanche Bal-
lard Giddings. the newly elected governor of the Slate of Colorado.
"Another happily married couple is Mr. and Mrs. Carl Garret. The
latter. in her high school days, was called Miss Florence Bohleber.
"Messrs, Grafton Cook and Harold Van Tassel, after having gone
through Center. Leland Stanford, Notre Dame. and several other uni-
versities. have resumed their former positions as drug store cowboys at
"Mr. Marvin Fisher is now running an enormous fruit and confec-
tionerv eslablislnnent on the main street of his home town, Palestine,
"The gorgeous dance emporium at Barron Lake is under the man-
agement of the Misses Ruth Fisher and Harriet Moore.
"America's greatest exponent of the silent drama is Mr. Stanley

Scenario of a Play in Two Acts
By Vivian Exner.
Characters: The Junior class, a bored, tired, overworked, intelli-
gent. and ambitious group of students.
Le Roi Harrison, the handsome, dappcr young president of the
class of '27.
George Loveland. an ellieiency expert now serving as vice-president
to the same organization.
Ada Snyder, the pretty, capable, flappcr secrctary-treasurer.
Faculty Miss XVilder, a commercial genius.
Advisers Miss Reed, an experienced traveler and devotee of the
to French language.
the Mr. Brandsmark, a widely known chemist and man of
The Faculty, a stern, relentless, hard-hearted, cruel set of teachers.
Time: September 3rd, a beautiful fall day in the wicked modern
twentieth century, year of 1924.
Place: An oppressive looking building of grey stone and red brick
tcommonly called Niles High Schoolj in the picturesque city of Niles,
Synopsis: The class enters Niles High School as a terrified bunch
of green sophomores. They are harricd by the teachersg goaded on

by the senior studentsg frightened and worried by their advisers: and
are, figuratively. kept up to their necks in school work. Thev are mis-
understood and uncared for. Yet a good group cannot be downed. and
this especial class has no word meaning defeat or discouraffement in
The darkest hour is the one before the dawn, and so this class
stages a mighty comeback which surprises and startles evervone. It
serves its purpose, however. and the class is much respected now. The
members give a party and invite all to come. It is an unparalleled suc-
eess and the school as a whole is thrilled and delighted, for here is some-
thing indeed new, novel, and interesting. After this the class members
venture forth. become acquainted, and are well liked. Delegations of
its members represent it on the football. basketball, and debating teams,
as well as in the glee club, band, and orchestra. Poorly as the class be-
gan. it is now popular, well received everywhere. In this peaceful and
contented frame of mind we see it as the curtain falls on the tirst act.
Characters: The .Junior Class. a peppy. happy. and resourceful
group who will graduate in '27,
George Loveland. first class president. full of vim and vigor, but
more devoted to his studies than politics.
Joe Camp, second class president, a very popular athlete and lately-
Lillian Scheib, vice-president, and famed for possessing that rare
combination of beauty plus brains.
Helen Logan. secrctary-treasurer. and nicknamed "that Royale
Girl" for reasons best known to herself.
Miss Talburt, whose one wish is a rebuilt Rome so that she
Class can air her Latin vocabulary.
Miss Schmidt. a teacher with histrionic ability.
Advisers Mr. Brandsmark. the alchemist.
The Faculty, as before described.
Time: Same day, one year later than Act. l.
Place: Same as in Act I, but hardly recognizable because of the
brightening presence of the Junior Class.
Synopsis: The Junior Class returns to old Niles High School and
immediately takes its place among the school's leaders, even surpassing
the superior seniors in some activities. They set a splendid example
for the lower classmen but none can ever follow exactly their remark-
able career. They provide members for the "Moon" staff, as well as
the athletic teams and other school organizations. lts tirst new duty
is to give a school party and it more than fulfills everyone's expectations
by a large masked Hallowe'en Party. After this the characters decide
it is the proper tilne to get their rings and pins, Then comes their thor-
oughly enjoyable chapel program in which only the talented students
take part. They contribute "The Florist Shop" to the Music and Dra-
lnatic Festival, and a generous share of the success of the Senior High
operetta is attributed to them. Among other of their numerous activi-
ties is the Junior play, "XVedding Bells", the successful Junior-Senior
Banquet, and J. Hop. ln one more year this unsurpassable class
lnarches forth from the protecting portals of Niles High School, but
those remorseful people remaining after them cherish no doubts as to
their future successes.

lille, the members of the elass of '28,
Have an interesting story to relate:
It isn't long, il's short and sweet,
Oar boys are niee, oar girls are neat.
Oar leader, brave as men of gore,
Is no one else but Clarence Moore:
He was our one and only Choice,
Strong of arln and sweet of voice.
A fitting leader for our elass,
For 'neath his feet would grow no grass:
He had as helper, Laivrenee Scott,
Maybe an athlete, maybe not.
Poor Harrg had two jobs to hold,
To keep our books and handle gold:
The girls had no show at all,
Bat who IVIZOIUS what theg'll do ne1'l fall?
Our Sophomore play, "The Turtle Dove",
A stirring seene of Chinese lone,
lllade others loolf up to oar elass.
As a little above the rest of the mass.
Our mueh liked prineipal we tried to please,
Upon the arrival of J. A. Z.,
llle filled his arms with gifts and toys,
And eordiallg wished "her" life fall of joys.
A sladions elass is this elass of ours,
Doelors and lawyers and students of Mars:
lfllliile we are here we'll do our best,
Bal we Inns! leave as did all the rest.
And when it eolnes o11r turn to go,

"The Muon" is a well known and popular paper among the students of Niles
lligh School. Published once a month, it brings to us in print the "high lights" in
the history ofthe school. The purpose of this paper is to inform the entire student
body of the at-tivities of the sehool, in true newspaper form. We have the privi-
lege ot' learning something about the art of journalism through it in the form of
editorials and eontributions by the talented students.
Some changes in the stall' oecurred during the year. Owing to the resigna-
tion of Sheridan tlook as business manager, Mahlon Smith assumed the responsi-
bility, and .loe Camp succeeded Ilon Brown as Humor Editor the last semester.

The Debating Team
Subject Debated: Resolved. that the proposed Child Labor amendment to the
National Constitution should be adopted by the l'nited States.

December ll Kalamazoo Negative 2-i Kalamazoo

This gives our team a total of nine points.
ln the debate with Three Rivers, we upheld the allirmativc side of the ques-
tion. Dur first speaker was Kenneth McConnell, followed by Sheridan Cook and
The Three Rivers case was based on the assertion that they did not oppose
a Federal Amendment, but that they were opposed to this particular amendment.
They advocated Federal Aid in enforcing state laws already existing.
Our team upheld the proposed amendment as the only practical way of deal-
ing with the situation. since the states had failed to cope with it satisfactorily.
The team was coached by Bliss Carribel Schmidt.
It was in the month of .lamlary that the Catherinettes found their way from
France to America. Tradition says that the Catherinettes were a group of girls
recognized for their studious virtues. Under the supervision of Marion Lawrence
and under the leadership of-their president, Deane Eager, the secretary, Thelma
Cattcrlin. and the treasurer, Margaret Schmidt, the French Club has found its
place in the Niles High School.
Through the talks on the dill'erent French provinces, a great deal of interest
in France has been stimulated. The program committee has attempted to bring
into the club, some things that cannot be discussed in class because of time limi-
tations. It aims to make the study of the French language a more practical and
One of the most unique banquets ever held was given on April 21, for the
initiation of members. After a French menu had been served by the Chef, sev-

The club closed a very successful and interesting term with the presentation
of "Les Deux Sourds". The play was translated and given by Naomi Ball: Deane
Eager, Dorothy .lauch, and Harriet Moore.

Qrder of Commercial Artists
C'l'0BFR 12th, 1925. marked the first birthday of the "Order of Com-
mercial Artists" of the Niles High School. This club was organ-
ized by the members of the "Shorthand Three" class. with Miss XVilder
acting as sponsor, The charter members of the club elected the follow-
ing people to hold olliees: Deane Eager, presidentg Maxine Van Skiver,
vice-president, Anita Visel. secretary-treasurer.
The 0. C. A. was organized for several purposes, one being to show
the business people of this city. aye and others as well. that the com-
mercial department of the Niles High School can turn out competent
stenographers and typists. As the best is always left until last, so have
we left the most important purpose of our club until last, and that pur-
pose was to establish an Employment Bureau. This bureau is now
established and in good working order. Several students have found
positions, some permanent and others temporary. through its help.
But do not be under the impression that this club is composed of a
number of people who "put their noses to the grind stone" and do
nothing but seek knowledge along thc commercial line. NYC have our
good tilnes as well as the rest. Our initiation meetings are especially
interesting. Ask any of our new members, and I am sure that they will
roll their eyes, shiver violently, and gestieulate with their hands, as
they recall the night when they were initiated.
Our social meetings are looked forward to by all the members of
the club. YVe have unique contests and impromptu plays. Speaking
of plays, we gave the student body of both Senior and Junior High, a
sample of our acting ability during the month of December. in the form
ofa mock trial. Mr. Zabel was brought before the Judge on the grounds
that he started his daughter on the wrong path in life by naming her
.lane Ada Zabel tthe initials, J. A. Z. spelling jazzj. The timely inter-
ruption of "Mrs. Zabel" removed all blame from the shoulders of Mr.

Unce ln A Blue Moon
N Tl-lli mystic palace of the Moon Lady many romances are arranged. Due to
her supervision, we lind liosemont-by-the-Sea, the palacial home of Mrs. Mary
Montgomery, the scene of three romances completed in a single evening. Betty
.Iaueh portrayed well the part of the heavenly match-maker: and Aleta Ostrander,
took the part of the mistress of the mansion, whose chief worry in life was her
slangy tlapper daughter, Leatrice, well enacted by Lucille Bachman.
After an absence of four years at college, Bob l-larrington is expected to re-
turn to the home of his aunt, whose other daughter, Sylvia Montgomery, played
by Helen Kehoe, was his boyhood sweetheart. Having fallen in love with another
girl at college, Bob sends his ehum George Taylor, who closely resembles him.
This part was taken by Stanley Gitre. George arrives amid preparations for a
Spanish fiesta and Iinds Sylvia more charming than he had expected. '
Earl Pierce and Kenneth Thornton, as Sir Archibald Ghetwood and M. lleve
Le Mon, arrive unexpectedly and are welcomed as noblemen.
A robbery takes place while the guests are dancing, and George is placed
under suspicion. The guilty parties are finally brought to justiee due to the aid
of Clifford I-lill as Mr. Babbitt Morton, Carl Schwarz as Mooney, the Policeman,
and Gordon Engle as Skylark Hoams, the detective, who falls in love with Sue
zanne, the French maid who also aids in the capture of the robbers. The part ot'
Suzanne was ably depicted by Josephine .Ienner.
A telegram from "the real Bob" leaves George free to marry Sylviag and Dick
Tobin, as the good natured Billy Maxwell, follows suit by marrying Betty Morton,
played by Calista Kingston.
Dorothy .lauch as Mrs. Lila Lavender who is forever bemoaning the loss of
her husband, and llarold Logan as Hop Sing Ili, the Chinese servant, add to the
liumor of the play.
The cast was assisted by a chorus of guests, burglars, reporters, and travelers.
Much credit is due to Miss Doris .Iaines, accompanist, and Miss Annabel Gom-
fort, director of production.

Review of the Season
Niles High School opened the 1925 season of football after two
weeks of training at Plym Park. The team. for the first time in six
years, was under a new coach, Martin Van XYingen, a graduate of
NVestern State Normal and an athlete of football, basketball. and base-
"Van" was confronted with many problems, as all coaches are at
the beginning of a football season. The football men of the Niles High
School were not a foreign proposition to Van, as he had been assistant
coach the previous year. Although the schedule was one of the hardest
a Niles team has ever attempted, the season of 1925 was considered very
On September 26th Niles won its first g'ilIllC from Cassopolis, piling
up a score of 51 to tl. Cassopolis was completely submerged with for-
ward passes, end runs, and trick plays. lt looked as though we were to
have a season bright with many victories.
Next CHIIIC the Mishawaka game, and Niles was given the severe
beating of a 27 to 7 score from a team of much more experience and
weight, who finished its schedule as champions of the state of Indiana.
Considering tl1e caliber of the team the Niles men were playing, they
gave a very creditable performance,
On October lttth Niles played the much feared Three Oaks team
and whipped them to the tune of 19 to O. This put confidence in the
Niles team for the battle of the following Saturday with Michigan City.
Then came the game with Michigan City, in which we were defeated
by a score of 9 to tl. The Niles boys fought hard throughout the game,
but not until the last half did they start to play real football. From
then on the game lacked none of the qualifications of a college fray, and
the victory of which Michigan City was so sure was in doubt many times.
The game ended with the ball on the Michigan City two foot line.
The team then began to concentrate in earnest upo11 the next game
with our old rivals, St. Joe. The game was played under anything but
ideal weather conditions, as a snowstorm had been in progress up to a
few l1ours before the time to begin. The event had been postponed
once before due to the weather, so it was played, regardless, this time.
The game was a hotly contested fray, both teams fighting with all
they had in them. as the score testified. St. Joe was lucky enough to
push the ball over for the one and only touchdown, and contributed the
one point which gave them a lead of seven points which the Niles team
was unable to overcome.
Next came the game with Plymouth, October 31st. Niles took its
spite out on the Plymouth boys, for the defeat by St. Joe of the preced-
ing XVednesday, by defeating them 19 to 6.
On November 7th Niles played the much heralded and feared Plain-
well eleven and beat them to the tune of -l-1 to tl. The game was played
wi -L T
1. Q V
ggi gy y giA The waitin'
on a muddy field between showers ol' rain. The boys came through in
excellent shape on line plunges, end runs, and forward passes. The line
held, the ends and tackles were "on their toes" throughout the game.
On November 11th tArmistice Dayj Niles played the last home
game of the season. The game with Three Rivers was won by a 7 to 0
score. before one ol' the largest crowds that ever witnessed a football
game on the Plym park gridiron. The defeat was the first that the
Three Rivers outlit had experienced. The Niles men played one of the
best games of the season, every man worked in perfect unison with the
other members of the Van 'Wingen speed machine. The game ended
with the ball on the Three Rivers one foot line.
Next came the game with Buchanan on November 24th in which
the Van XVingenites scored another victory, trimming the Buchanan
crew 23 to tl. The Buchanan team fought hard and succeeded in putting
up a resistance which made the Niles crew sweat.
The last game of the season was played Thanksgiving day at Do-
wagiac when Niles finished the season with another victory of 13 to 6.
The Dowagiac game was the fastest game the Niles boys had partici-
pated in during the season. The spectators of both sides were on their
feet throughout the game, and, as a result, both teams received excel-
This game ended the high school athletic careers of the following
players who graduate this year: Roskay, Groat, Kendrick, Davis, R.
Harger, and Cooper. Their absence will be keenly felt by the next
year's football squad.
Captain Edmund llfolforcl was one of the best captains and linemen
ever turned out by the Niles High School. He was the backbone of the
Niles line. Ed was a powerful, aggressive. courageous captain, and
shouldered the responsibility in a very creditable fashion. Captain
XVolford was on the mythical conference team.
Captain-elect George lVl'IlfFl' was the Niles "scrappy" right tackle.
He played a hard, consistent game throughout the season. A more
capable leader could not have been elected. and under him, the 1926
team should have another successful season.
Leland Roslcay finished the season at the post of guard. Roskay
completed his high school career in athletics with the close of this sea-
son. He was the only man to receive a letter for the fourth time.
Louis Peters-"Pete,' was a man of much grit and drive. He was
a hard fighter and was considered one of the best halfbacks in the Little
Ten Conference. Peters was on the Little Ten Conference team.
Artluu' Hall-"Art" was the star fullback of the Niles eleven. His
power of gaining yardage in line plunges, his clean playing,'and never
failing fight won him the position of fullback on many mytlncal teams.
chief among them being the Little Ten Conference team.
Lawrence Kendrick. ln playing his last year on the Niles High
eleven, "Kendrix" played the best season of his football career. His
position was that of quarterback.

Itevieiv of Season
On December 11th the Niles 1925-26 basketball season was duly
opened with a victory of 21 to 11 over the Buchanan basketeers. YVith
the new defense tactics and the points contributed by the Harrison-
Morris scoring machine. the galne was won by a wide margin.
On December 9th the Niles aggregation journeyed to the city of
South Haven where they were defeated in a fast and furious combat to
the tune of 16 to 9.
December 23rd was the night on which our elders, the alumni, were
scheduled to come back and show the Niles team the finer points of
basketball. The high school men lost this game after one of the hardest
battles ever seen on the high school tloor. The outstanding stars for
the alumni were Sehrump, Forrest, and Clevenger, with McCoy and
Farrell doing their part to make a victory.
On January 1st the fast Michigan City crew invaded the Niles camp,
taking home the bacon with a 20 to 19 victory. Up to the time when the
gym was thrown in darkness, due to trouble at the power plant, the
Niles team was ahead, leading by a comfortable margin. After the
return of the lights the Michigan City team started a rally which ended
in defeat for Niles. Captain Hall and Raymond Morris were the out-
standing stars in the game.
On January Sth the much feared Three Oaks team journeyed to
Niles to receive a beating of 16 to 13. The game was one of the fastest
of the season, and the Niles men deserved llltltfll credit for the good
brand of basketball they played.
The following evening, January 9th, the Niles boys trotted over to
Mishawaka to receive a 35 to 22 defeat from the "Rubber City" marvels.
The victory of which Mishawaka was so sure at the end of the half was
nearly taken away from them when the Niles team started a battle
royal and ran the score up to 20 to 21 with the "rubber makers" on the
heavy end of the score. The Niles men, however. were unable to keep
up their fast pace, and the Mishawaka crew ran up a large score in the
last quarter. Captain Hall lead the scoring for Niles with four field
goals and one f1'ee throw.
On January 15th the Muskegon tive administered a 12 to 8 defeat to
the Niles men in a hard fought battle in which the Niles crew was
slightly outclasserl. The boys fought hard but were unable to overcome
the score piled up by their opponents.
Again the Niles men tasted the bitter pangs of defeat when the old
rivals. St. .loe, galloped away with a 19 to 12 victory. The Niles team
put up the same brand of light as at all other games but was unable to
overthrow the clutch in which King Jinx seemed to hold them.
On the 27th the Niles team overthrew the reign of King Jinx and
stepped out, trimming the fast Three Rivers aggregation with a final

tally of 18 to 15. The game started with fast playing and basket shoot-
ing which never ended until the final whistle. lless was the high point
man for Niles, netting eleven points toward the total eighteen.
February 5th the team traveled to Plymouth, and was defeated 33 to
13 by a team that out-elassed us in every way. The Niles men put up
a good fight. but our lndiana opponents tore away with little dilliculty.
Considering the caliber of the opposing team, the Niles erew made a
Undaunted by the loss of the Plymouth game. the Niles netlers eon-
quered the Buchanan basketeers at Buchanan with a seore of 27 to 16.
Morris led the scoring for Niles with Hess. Harrison, and A. Hall elose
behind. Morris seored four baskets and Hess three. The seore was the
largest compiled by the Niles team during the season.
In the most exciting game of the season, Otsego defeated Niles 19
to 17. YVith thirty seconds to go. the seore was a tie. .lust as the gun
was fired, an Otsego man dropped a neat side shot, and the Niles hopes
were upset again. The team played a clean, fast game, but was unable
to sink the baskets. This ended the fifth game that Niles had lost by a
two or three point margin.
On February 26th the Niles team, backed by three interurban ears
of nI'00lQG1'Su invaded St. Joe. The Niles men were not up to form and
were out-played from the start. The St. Joe team piled up a 26 to 15
score. Morris lead the scoring for Niles with two field goals and three
The Niles High School basketball squad again threw off the elutelies
of King Jinx on March 5th and defeated the fast South Haven team by
a seore of 20 to 12. This was indeed sweet revenge for the beating they
had administered to Niles earlier in the season.
This game ended the 1925-26 season of basketball.
The District Tournament
Niles and St. Joe clashed again in the finals of the District Tourna-
ment held at Niles, March 11th, 12th, and 13th. The Niles team was
defeated 23 to 17. The boys were playing up to form, and, had their
floor work been a little faster, the seore might have been different. The
Niles team worked in perfect unison throughout the game, making it
hard to pick any outstanding stars.
The Niles men were defeated by Marshall by a score of 35 to 15 in
the first round of the Regional Tournament held in Kalamazoo. This
killed all of our hopes for getting another chance at St. Joe. The Niles
men did not play up to form. The only man playing anywhere near
his usual notch was Morris, who scored ten of the total fifteen points
made by Niles.

The 1925 season was the reward for the previous years of hard work
by coach llllll team. The track season of '25 was the most successful
met by a squad in the history of the Niles High School. Practically the
same team that met with so much defeat the previous year came back
and walked through all encounters,'including the State Meet, victori-
ously. They finished the season with an average of 1000 percent.
At every turn the team established new 1'ecords and won the meets
with a record number of points. This happened at xVCSll'I'I1 Slate
Normal, Little Ten Conference Meet, and Michigan State. tClass BJ.
Out of the fifteen cups won by various teams in the past fifteen
years, the track team of 1925 added forty percent of this total.
The Detroit Free Press stated in their write-up of the State Meet,
that Niles had the best track team ever seen at a state meet in Michigan.
Review of Season
On April 18th the 1025 track season started with a bang-the track
men defeating their Hoosier opponents 88 2X3 to 155.
NVith the exception of the broad jump, the Niles team captured
every first and second place, allowing the "Plymouthites" but one
second and one tie for first. Peters was high point man for Niles, with
thirteen points. Kendricks followed closely with eleven pointsg Burns
third with ten.
The relay was forfeited to Niles.
Again on April 25th Niles performed the swamping act, springing
a big surprise on the St. Joseph track team and upsetting the "dope
The XValker "speed demons" took the "Northenders" into camp
with a total of eighty-three points to the "Howeites" 39, taking a first in
every event, with the exception of the pole vault, discus, and -140 yard
dash. The only exceptional feat of the meet was the mark set by Arthur
Hall in the broad jump of twenty feet, two and one-half inches.
On May 2nd the Niles relay teams competed in the Kalamazoo Col-
lege Relay Carnival. The medley relay team established a new state
record of 11:38.
The half mile relay team had a turn of luck and lost their race to
the fast Frobel team of Gary, and by a very scant margin.
In the sprint relay, Niles captured a third, being beaten by Frobcl
and South Haven.
Captain Lagoni entered in the special shot put event and captured
a third place against stiff Class A competition. A new record was estab-
lished in this event of forty-two feet, two inches.
Piling up the highest total score ever made at an interscholastic
meet at VVestern State Normal, establishing one new state record and
two YVestern State Normal records, the track men won the interschol-
astic championship of Class B of western Michigan, Saturday, May 0th,
with a total of 53115 points. The closest competition was with Cold-
water with a total score of 33 points. Burns smashed the record in the
880, establishing a new record of 2:05. Lothaire Hall beat the former
XVestern State record, setting a record of 27 seconds in the low hurdles.
Other men performing exceptionally well were Kendrick, Abroham,
Medo, Pierce, Groat, XVeaver, Arthur Hall, and Peters. The relay went
to Niles in an easy victory.

Niles next scored an easy victory in the Little Ten Conference track
meet on May 15th, taking the meet with a total of 3915 points. St. Joe
came second, with 24 points, and Benton Harbor third, with 21 points.
The Niles team was followed by hard luck throughout the meet, the
only unusual performances being those of Burns, Abroham, Harger,
Lothaire Hall. and Groat. Captain Lagoni was up to true form in the
shot put, winning a first over Zelner of Dowagiac. XVeaver carried off
third in this event. Kendrick and Medo also contributed two third
On May 23rd Niles defeated Dowagiac to the tune of 87 to 31, de-
spite the fact that three of our most valuable track men were absent.
The visitors were allowed one first place, and a few seconds and thirds.
However, the Dowagiac boys pushed the Niles men in many events,
making the meet a very interesting one.
At this time Burns, Abroham, and Lothaire Hall were at the Michi-
gan National Invitation Meet. Burns gained the only place, winning a
third in a race that was composed of the best half-milers in this part of
the country. The time was 2:01. Burns deserves much credit for such
a showing. Abroham held a third place in his event tthe milej till he
collapsed in the last ten yards, the competition being too strong for him.
Hall was placed in the fastest heat in the low hurdles and failed to
contribute. He also failed to place in the javelin, although he made a

Lothaire Hall captured the honors for the highest number of points,
taking a first in the low hurdles, and a first in the javelin, establishing a
new state record in this latter event of 159 feet, SBQ inches. Robert
Burns, the star half-Iniler, again broke a record by lowering the state
mark in his event to 2:05-4. Dittmer, Peters, Lothaire Hall, and Ken-
drick gained another trophy for the school by winning the relav race
in 1:30. Captain John Lagoni pushed the shot a distance of '10 feet,
101Q inches. XVeaver took a second, and Lagoni, also, placed third in
the discus. Peters raised the Niles score tive points by winning a first
in the 440 against stifl' competition, Groat followed Hall for a second
in the low hurdles, chalking up three more points for Niles. Art Hall
coppcd a second in the broad jump, making 20 feet, 91fQ inches. Pierce
pounced on to three more points in the high timbers. Harger calne
through in the mile, winning a second against a fast field and saving the
day for Niles in this event, as Abrohaln, due to injuries, was unable to
perform in his usual manner.
Allegan gave the closest competition, with 28 points: St. Johns fol-
lowed with 25g and Monroe fourth with 20 points.

Coach L. S. XValker deserves much credit for constructing the best
balanced and best all around track team in the state of Michigan. He
worked with this team for two years and succeeded in making it one of
the best. Mr. YValker ended his coaching career in the Niles High
School by turning out his third state championship lCtllIl in his six years
as coach for Niles High.
Cap1'a1'n John Lllfjflfllifuptltu was a loyal captain. No better man
could have been elected to pilot the 1925 "State Champs". l'at's main
event was the shot. but he could always be depended upon for points
in the discus. Captain Lagoni ended his high school career in athletics
as captain of this team.
Robert Burnsf"Bob" was the best half-miler Niles has ever had.
He holds the XVestern State Normal record of 2:05 in the 880, and the
state record of 2:05-4 in the 880. The loss of Burns is keenly felt in
Alerrander 1'lbF0l1GHl7iiAlCS,, was the best Niles entry in the mile
run. He was always a consistent winner in dual meets and good for
points in the district. conference. and state meets.
l'VaIter Olleson-"YValt" has proven himself valuable in a track
suit as well as on the basketball floor. YValt is a miler with a biff future
ahead of him.
Captain-elect H9261 Marvin Harger-"lVIike" could always be de-
pended upon for points in the mile and occasionally in the half. He
also was a member of the medley relay team. Harger will make an
ideal leader for the team of '26, He is consistent and a hard worker.
His team mates of the 1925 squad wish him and his team good luck.
John Medo-"Johnnie" was the pole vaulter of the Niles squad.
This was his first year in track and he came through in great style.
Lothaire Hall-"Hall", though small. held his own against the big-
gest. He was a hurdler and javelin thrower of exceptional quality. Hc
could also do his part on the relay team. Hall holds the XVestern State
record of 27 seconds in the hurdles and the state record of 159 feet 515
inches in the javelin throw. He was elected captain of the 1926 track
squad. but due to the new age limit, was declared ineligible. The loss
of Hall from the ranks of basketball, football, and track teams deprives
N. H. S. of one of the best all round athletes it has ever had.
Artliur HallfThe broad jump is "Art's" best event. He also can
be relied upon to place in the pole vault and 100 yard dash.
Loren Dittmerf"Dippey" was the pole man on the relay team. He
also was good for points in the 100 and 220 in dual meets.
John lVec111erf"Firpo". the boy who could toss a mean shot. al-
ways managed to collect points in the shot and could be relied upon
to place in the discus in all dual meets.

Louis PflersfJ'Pete" was the Niles high-point man in nearly every
dual meet. Louis was a track 1112111 of great value. He was consistent
in the 440 and relay and always managed to pick up points 111 the high
jump. javelin, and low hurdles.
Earl Piert-ef"Dick" was a consistent winner in the strenuous high

Hail to our second team, who won every game twith the exception
of the alumni gamel this past season! Many look upon the seeoud team
as a mere form of entertainment before the main game of the evening.
liut they furnish the necessary scrimmage for the varsity team.
Niles High was represented by probably the smallestfin size--
second team in its history. Yet they did not let this serve as a handicap.
Instead. they took advantage of it by making use of their speed. They
defeated the Buchanan Reserves twice and the St. Joe Reserves twice,
besides defeating the tirst teams of Edwardsburg. Cassopolis, and
Powell, who has acted as our yell leader the past few years, was the
high point man with Lawrence Scott, forward, and Ostrander. guard, a
close second. Reall played a strong game at guard, with able assistance
from Richards. Schulke and Forler played a good game at center, and
Lawson always did justice to himself at either forward or ffu'1rd.

"tt, .Iack, how sweet of you! Mllll' I
never expected you to give me any-
thing! What a darling coinlliwll WS
just what I wanted! llow could you
guess that I like the small silver ones?
Thank you so much, .lack."
These words were uttered by a young
high school girl when she beheld me
for the Iirst time. I was quite tlattered
bv the ioyous reception, you can be
This is a great old life, I'm telling
you. livery time someone comes in to
see her Christmas presents, my owner
says, pointing at me, "Look what .lack
gave me! Isn't it darling? l'm just
UIIIZX about it." I
I feel quite proud of myself to think
that I am liked so well.
I was taken to a big room with a
shiny lloor, on which everybody was
moving around and kicking up his feet,
while some men on a platform pro-
duced some weird noises. Some of the
people on the Iloor seemed to be exer-
cising very vigorously. My owner held
me so tightly in her hand all evening
that I almost smothered to death. After
each dance she would open me up, gaze
intentlv into my mirror, smooth back
a stray hair, and gently rub my pull
over her nose.
She must have become tired of hold-
ing me, for she had the person she was
dancing with put me in his pocket.
The pocket was very dark, but it wasn't
quite as warm as her hand.
Also, she must have forgotten all
about me, for I have been carried home
with the gentleman. I wonder how I
am going to like my new owner.
I have been put in a dresser drawer
with a great many other compacts. It
reminds me of the time I was in the
store, only there are not that many
compacts here. Most of my neighbors
are not as good-looking as I am. They
are not bright, shiny. and new like me.
Most of them look half worn out. They
have initials scratched on their backs,
and they are halt' empty. I am the
smallest one and the only one made of
NYe compacts were talking together
the other night. Une big gold one said
Page One Iliozdred Twelve
that he had been in this drawer for
about six months now, and he wished
he could get out and see the world.
Another said he liked it here, because
he would be more likely to live a long
time if he remained here. "When that
girl had me," he said, "she used to use
me about sixteen times a day, and at
that rate I wouldn't last long."
Today my present possessor brought
one of his boy friends up to his room.
Ile took all of us compacts out of the
drawer and showed us to his friend.
"What do you think of my collec-
tion? Pretty good, eh what?"
"Ilather good, for you, I'd say," re-
plied his friend. "Do you ever intend
to return them?"
"Sometime, perhaps," was the an-
By some miraculous circumstance I
am in the possession of my rightful
owner once again. Ilow it happened.
I don't know. except that I was carried
to a big building where hundreds of
fellows and girls were hanging around
with books under their arms, and given
to a feminine hand which I recognized
as familiar. I heard her say. "Thanks
a lot, Dick," as she grasped nie.
I go to school every day now. My
owner carries me there in the morn-
ing, takes me home at noon, brings me
back in the afternoon, and takes me
home again at night. Believe me, I am
used now-a-days! My days of idleness
have reached an end.
When the girls in school see me for
the tlrst time, they say, "O, what a cute
compact! Did you get it for Christ-
"Yes, .lack gave it to me," is the rc-
I was taken to a room where a great
many girls were standing around. My
owner took me into a very small room
where she changed her clothes. She
left me there alone for a long time
while she went upstairs. After she had
returned and put on her usual habit
again, she went into a room where
there were several mirrors hanging on
the wall. Before these several mirrors
about twenty-live girls were congre-
gated. The air was tilled with two
"Who's got a comb?"
"May I use your compact?"
tl ' '-
I was handled bv about a dozen dif- lllll YOU KNOW:
ferent girls who all made use of me.
Some of them weren't any too gentle,
and I certainly felt relieved when the
bell rang and they rushed out.
I feel terribly disfigured tonight. I
feel old and worn out.
This afternoon I was taken into a
large room where a great many boys
and girls were seated. Some were
looking intently al a book in front of
them: others were gazing about the
room: some were writing: some were
whispering: and some had their heads
upon their desks. I was laid upon the
top of one of these desks also. I had
not lain there long when a boy across
the aisle picked me up. Ile hurt me so
terribly that I almost screamed out
loud. Ile took out my beautiful blue
satin powder pull and wrote in ink all
over the top of it. Then he proceeded
to draw out a knife and scratch initials
all over my back. O, how it pained:
it made me faint! NVhen my owner
saw how I had been disfigured, she was
extremely angry. She certainly told
that wicked boy what she thought of
I aln so weak I can hardly write to-
night. Circumstances have gone from
bad to worse.
My owner put me in a steel contrap-
tion this morning. It is a place where
she keeps her coat, hat, and books. I
was placed on a shelf with some books.
I was entirely forgotten, I guess, for
suddenly a book was pulled out with
such force that I was hurled to the ce-
ment floor. My mirror was smashed
into a thousand pieces and I was made
uneonscious. Now, in my dying mo-
ments. I tell you of my sad, sad fate.
May you die a sweeter death.

All we who attended shall never regret it.
But after such a big event. 'twas quite hard for us all
To settle down to -work again. within the somber wall
Of the big old red brick schoolhouse, where we learn our history.
And put sentences together for our class in English III.
Then. one morning when I came to school, I very nearly stumbled.
If you had seen the sight I saw, I know that you'd have tumbled:
For Mutt Stowe, in some sister's togs, was really some attraetionf
And Ruth King. with her baby doll, another of the factiong
My eyes were opened very wide, for through the halls in streaks
I saw some other eostumes,fit was the day for freaksg
Kenneth Thornton was a babe, the real angelic kind,
And I think Gerald XYright among the flappers could be lined:
And. as the days went on, and I the honor roll would make,
The football season opened and 1ny extra time did takeg
For could I miss a game. oh not 'twould cause me misery.
'Cause if I wasn't there to yell, why. we might lose. you seeg
Ten games we played. exactly ten, and after the last one.
Dowagiac gave the boys a feed: the season then was done.
The nurse was very busy at the end of eaeh six weeks
For report cards caused some fainting spells and some hysterie shrieks.
One day in the assembly. we had a speaker rare,
He was from South America. with black and shiny hair:
He made a speech that pleased the girls, oh really. yes it didf f
But he was so good looking who cared what he said?
On "Music and Dramaties" the Niles people fed,
And the Glee Club's "Hiawatha" strains are running in my head.
But thal's not all. the .Iunior High an operetta gave,
"Love Pirates of Hawaii," which did our hearts enslave.
The basket ball season began with a boom,
And in the big gymnasium we hardly found room:
Buchanants team was tirst one met by Niles High's sturdy men.
NVe beat 'em too, and later on, we beat 'em once again.
Do you remember the famous night
XVhen we played Three Oaks? I do all right!
YVe lost some games. yes, 'tis quite true.
But the boys fought hard for the yellow and blue:
And say. do you 'member that cold stormy night
Three Rivers came down to beat us up right?
Page One Illmdrfd Sixteen
xx? 'Q32M,5W-53,3-Ita.,-1' ..
They'd won every game, but they got a surprise,
For we broke thei1' record, 'lwas good exercise.
I really must mention. I think, right away.
Our "Once in a Blue Moon" the big Clee Club playg
And, oh how the hero and heroine sang,
The big auditorium with it's echoes rang.
Next, I think the Tournament our further interest took,
XVe saw big posters'in the halls wherever we would look,
There were ten teams competing, Class D and C and 15,
To see which was the master lealn in each group of the threeg
The last night of the Tournament the Gym was surely jammed,
For wasn't Niles to play St. Joe, their rival in the land?
The team for liridgman in Class D then won the Champion's Cup,
And when Class C came on the floor, our interest sure was up:
Edwardsburg played fast and hard, but it seemed it could not stand
Against the score that piled under Three Oaks' steady hand.
So Three Oaks won that cup, and now it was Class I3 to meet,
NVe played St. Joe a right hard game, but went down in defeatg
Our score was that of seventeen 'gainst theirs ot' twenty-three,
They surely had it over us 'twas plain for all to sec.
But we did not surrender: our fighting spirit's up,
And next year we are going to win that Championship Cup.
Then spring vacation ambled in, a week of stormy weather,
Time was spent in sulking and grumbling all together.
Of course when we got back to school, we counted up the time
Until we would be free again, with studies otl' our mind.
"NVedding Bells" were ringing in thc portals of our school,
NVhen the Juniors entertained us, as is their yearly rule.
YVC were always on the lookout for some signs of graduation,
And the Seniors seemed the heroes in the realms of educationg
For the good of our dear citizens, they entertained us, too.
So we would not forget them when the old school days were through.
The Junior Banquet and the "Hop" I think were really started
To keep the Seniors happy instead of so downhearted.
It was a great success, I know you'll all agree,
And when in caps and gowns they came, 'twas surely good to see
How firm the tread with which they took thc dear prize which they
Diplomas which for years in school, they tirelessly had fought.
And now they have departed, and we are left alone,
To follow their example which has so brightly shone.
May we in years to come, be to our Alma Mater, true,
For N. H. S., dear N. H. S., there is no school like you.

THE WHOLE QIST OF THIS CHAT IS
SAFETY FOR YOUR MONEY '
EVERY man who gets anywhere arrives by the road of sure
and steady saving. He wins because he puts his savings 1
where they are safe instead of trying to get quick earnings.
The truth is, you haven't even a gambler's chance to "get
rich quick". 2
Take this sound advice-invest your savings here, where
every dollar is backed up, by well managed first mortgages.
There simply isn't anything safer.

"where savings are greatest"
Being An Economic Factor
In the Community Served
The true function of this Store, as We see
it, is that of serving as a purchasing and dis-
tributing agent for the people of the commun-
ity and the outlying districts.
VVhen the merchant enters business he as-
sumes the responsibility of performing a
public benefaction-that of providing com-
modities and services to his community in a
way that will afford economy and convenience
and of maintaining such environment as is
necessary and desirable to the consumers who
lf he fails in this responsibility, he ceases
to be an economic factor in the community
which he essays to serve.
Since the first Store in this Nation-wide
institution of department stores was opened
in l902, the outstanding ambition has been to
serve all alike and well. That we have suc-
ceeded is proved by our rapid growth. In
less than a quarter of a century we have be-
come the Worldls Largest Chain Department
