A Ghost Story
:iii Old Settler sat beside the doorway of the Old Tavern whittling a piece of
wood and smoking his pipe. just as he did every sunny day in autumn. XYith-
in the Tavern the tongues were wagging, for the story of the ghosts in the
village graveyard was once again making the round and the loafers were gathered
at the'r regular meeting place to hear the latest news.
.Xbout sixty years before. a French couple, Rose and Pierre Snydam. had
strolled through the cemetery at dusk. Looking up at the windows of the old
church they we1'e surprised to see lights burning withing moving slowly toward
the church was a group of ghostly, phantom Indains and Whites. A few weeks
later the bodies of Rose and Pierre were found in the cemeteryg a few feet away
lay the body of Gray Eagle. a jealous Indian, who. after murdering the couple.
had taken his own life.
Every Hallowe'n, the legend related. the spirits of Rose, Pierre, and Gray
Eagle wandered through the haunted cemetery, and ghostly lights were seen in
the windows of the old church.
A group of young people in the nearby city read of the narrative and, becom-
ing interested. decided to visit the historic graveyard.
Thus it happened that on the same day iHallowe'enH. these "adventurers"
proceeded to the little village: upon arriving they inquired of the Old Settler con-
cerning the whereabouts of the cemetery and informed him of their intentions
of solving the mystery of the spirits and the lights in the church. The Qld Set-
tler merely smiled and replied. "Several people have said that but none has ever
stayed in the cemetery more than a few minutes."
,lust at dusk the party walked down the long, winding lane to the cemetery
and approached the church. A screech owl hailed them from the Seven Cedars and
the wind sighed through the pines. The windows of the crumbling church stared
blankly at them and several bats fluttered from the belfry. Suddenly a dim light
Hickered in the windows of the church and then burned brighter. Faint music was
heard and a shadowy form slipped away through the sassafras bush. A scream
rose. then died away in a wail. echofng and re-echoing through the silent grave-
yard. A phantom Indian stood in the path before themg it was Gray Eagle! :X
leering expressien crossed his fade. then the figure lecame indistinct and dis-
appeared. .Xnotlier scream rang out on the night airg then the voices in the church
chanted softly. ..
This was Koo much for the terrified pgopleg they turned and fied, leapiing
over the rickety fence and racing down the lane at a mile-a-minute pace.
The next morning the group left the Old Tavern. vowing that they would
never go near the liaunted graveyard again. The Uld Settler. sitting in his usual
place outside the door, chuckled and nodded his head knowingly.
This is the legend of the spirits in the haunted graveyard. The flld Tavern
is giine and the Hld Scttler no longer sits outside the door. The ancient church
has crumbled away in ruin, but the mystery has never been solved. Perhaps the
spirits uf ljrgry Eagle. Pierre, and Rose still wander in the graveyard!

The Spirit of Niles High
lYhat am I? I am one of many 1nil-
lions like me scattered over the earth.
throughout the whole world. I am a
great part of every high school. college.
university. or academy. whether it be
large or small. But I do Hot wish to
tell you of my likenesses. I want you
to know me.
I trample any criticism or any harm
which threatens this school. I manifest
myself every day. in the school building
and on the streets. I am abused but res-
cued at last. I make the city of Niles
proud of N. H. S. and her students. I
never die. I have a seat in every class-
room, every study period. every assem-
bly. every scholastic meet. every athletic
contest. and I am constantly on parade
in the halls.
But my seat is not at a desk. or in a
recitation chair, or on long bleachers.
My seat is in the heart of every student.
In fact. I am almost a student.
I am the Spirit of Niles High..

the realm of Fame. I am greatly surprised to see that many of the inhabi-
tants of this land are graduates of Niles High.
No one hears me or sees me as I stand here undetermined what to do. Near
the gate I can see a girl who seems to be having a gay time studying something
through a telescope. I can't go past her without being rude, but as she turns,
I see that it is Louise Morgridge doing some work in her chosen career as a

Louise lYilkinson and Bertram Brown are loaded with books. and their studious
brows are wrinkled with the job of making good their scholarships. Bob Groat.

in college. Harold Hunziker doesn't appear "walked on'l by his work in the Cni-
versity of Chicago. Cf course he has his noted paint brushes with him and
leaves innumerable posters and pictures trailing behind.

had tilched their professors grade books. but they are merely recording grades
because the teachers at Park College. Parkyille. Ho.. simply can't teach school
and keep "Bud" away from the football field at the same time.
As I stretch to my fullest height. trying to see if the paper Lillian has is a
"1Ioon." I stub my toe and nearly fall flat. Looking down, I see the curb of a
smoothly pared road leading away from the gate toward a bright light far away.

hostess of a tea shop.
I am getting so close to the light, and the road is now so rough that I can
hardly go on. But I must see who those ten men are way up there. They seem
to be following that tall, thin, good looking fellow, while a short man with a mus-
tache runs beside one and then another, talking all the time. I remember! They
make up Mr. lValker's old gang-lthe state basketball champions. And the leader
is Hank Schrumpf. He has on a baseball outfit, and as he turns to call to the
other fellows, I can see "XVhite Sox" printed across his chest. "Foley" Vtfadel
and Tommy Farrell say something about what happened when they went back to
school, Tommy to help coach and Foxy to tell the students about the team when
he played. Muldoon McCoy tells Harry Lee and Lloyd Drueger. teachers. about
railroad business, while Eddie Chambers tells his old pal, 'Iohnny Clevenger, who
works at the Natoinal Print, all about playing basketball at the Lf of M. and
coaching at Crystal Falls, Michigan. A woman in the ranks! Yes, Frank Forrest,
far from least among the fellows, has been hit by Cupid's dart.
The road has become terribly rough. Mr. XYalker, the short man with the
mustache, has dropped out and is waving goodby to the fellows. I stop him to
ask what it's all about. He very kindly agrees to tell me if I'll turn and go back.
By the time the explanation is finished we are back at the gate, on the other
side of which is station N. H. S. Humming "That Old Gang of Mine," Mr.
lValker enters the station, leaving me to choose my road and begin again to earn
the fame and honor which all graduates of Niles High are striving to earn in order
to be worthy of their school.

multitude of People .Xnd they were called Freshmen. ln the year 1025
they had come hy that name with exceeding great joy. And there were
among them such llrains as had not heen heard of there-to-fore and were never

.Xnd it came to pass at this time that the multitude was separated so that the

thus they were sorely pressed for time to work together among themselves.
.Xnd there were among them those that were called Athletes, and they were
"XYeinie" and Noel and llarry, and the larger .Nrmies were driven hack hy them.
Now in the year nineteen hundred and twenty-six the throng re-entered the

Io stop hy the wayside. and the others went hy, never seeing the limp forms on
windowsills and radiators, and did not give them aid, until one Good Samaritan led
them to different places which were also called .fXdvisories.

hieroglyphics thereon to yellow cards.
:Xnd they were led to a great room which was called the Auditorium.
And all Rulers and Oppressors were shown unto them.
Now it happened that this multitude chose a President, and he was called

November 6, 1951
EAI? EDITOR of the "Niles Daily Blatterv:
In answer to yourlquery as to what, in my opinion, constitutes the
most interesting episode in my life, I should say that the airplane trip that
I took to England and Europe was the most representative.
It was just three years ago that I went to St. Louis, and, through the irifiuence
of Keith Ilaviland, vice-president of the Lindberg Airways Incorporated, I was
able to obtain a plane for the trip. I was surprised to find that my pilot was Ernest
Welsh, whom I had not seen for ten years. Xllhile' we were discussing old. high
school days, I noticed a rotund greasy mass roll from under the plane, and I recog-
nized through the mask of grease our old friend Ralph Laverty, who. I was told,
was the corporations head mechanic. George XVinters came up at this time. and
with Z1 Hood of salesnian's oratory, induced Xlielsh to use gas and oil from XVinter's
Refinery, l.ee Babcock. an insurance salesman, came after George had left and
said that if we used lYinter's oil, we would need about 3550.00 more insurance.
-lust before we departed on our hrst hop, I went to a store to order some
provisions. I found that Noel Eorler was the manager and that he owned three
other large stores in St. Paul. Three of his clerks were Dorothy, Tuttlel Kathryn
-ludd. and Mary Durni. I was so astonished at seeing them again that I uncon-
sciously ordered half of the store, and, amid their laughter and my embarrass'
ment. had to cancel most of it.
Finally, Ernie and I started over the old Atlantic. About three hundred miles
out we developed engine trouble, but were luckly enough to land in ther path of
ocean liners and were soon picked up. VVhen we arrived on board, the captain came
forward to greet us, andiyes sir! It was Ernest Morley. He was as glad
to see us as we were to see him. He informed us that an internationally known
ladies' orchestra was on board and invited us in to hear it. The orchestra was
Edna Nickel, Edith Franz, Hazel XVyant, and Fern Van Derbeck.
XYe left soon after this, having lixed the engine, and arrived in London with-
out further mishap. A reporter, who seemed more slippery than the
sliding toward us through the crowd, and lo and behold there was

we were at-
our old pal
and had or-
Kehrer, with Condon Kirk as first lieutenant. The club was now watching a bird
cage and waiting expectantly for a pair of love birds to have a quarrel.j
Dick stopped at a meat market, and there, back of the counter, was Don Hart-
man. Ilon was running old Heinz lback in the Statesj a close race for varieties.
as he had discovered sixty-three and one-half ways to pickle gig's feet. His office
girl was Ruth llurgoyne-the only person that knew all the varieties.
XYe passed 3 ladies' hat store and stopped in to congratulate Irene Sol-f and

Nelladean Mell, the owners. Margaret Conrad and Margaret Farley comprised a
small, though efficient, corps of designers.
Dick said that several other old friends were about town. Lloyd I-Iunziker and
Russell Schwartz were landscape gardeners, while Beatrice Smith had gained con-
siderable comment from the "graybeards" on her paintings. Geraldine Malone was
head matchmaker in a marriage bureau where Guiula Miller, champion typist, typed
That evening we went to an exclusive restaurant and saw Bob Waterson and his
orchestra winning apple sauce-I mean applause. The orchestra included -Iohn
Burns. John vlauch, Vernon Painter, and a few strangers. They played "Humor-
esque" with such feeling that everyone started to cry, and Don Carmichael. with an
eye always on business. came in and started to sell "Sealpackerchiefs." Ile was
ousted by Irving Boulton, imported bouncer and polo star.
The next day we went to Oxford University in a Chevrolet that Dick had
bought from Richard Stoll back in the States. While here we visited Coach Charles
Bruycher, who has become a rival for Knute Rockne's fame back home.
Back in London. we sadly took leave of Dick and flew to Scotland where we
found Casper Burns trying to sell the Scotchmen long trousers.
From here we went to France where we purchased some Parisian powder and
perfume from Violet Parker. exclusive agent. We found Margaret XVhite and Nina
Young teaching the French students to speak the American language with true
From here we went to Germany, where we observed Don Sharkey teaching
young German students to be nonchalant when they are called upon to recite but
haven't prepared the lesson.
In Hamburg we met Alice Findley, who told us she was working for Thelma
Kubbernuss and Dorothy XVesselhoft, who, in partnership, owned all the large
theatres in the vicinity of Hamburg. lVe went to visit Dot and Thelma, and during
the course of the ensuing conversation, learned that Grace Ballard, Myrna Camp-
bell. and -luanita Sanders had gone on an expedition to central Mongolia to aid
some doctors in experimenting with a new medicine which was found only in that
vicinity. and which, if taker! at time of retiring, would awaken sleepy children in
the morning. Professor Lee Cousins of the Montreal Medical School endorses it
As we left for Italy, Ernest developed a toothache, so we stopped near a
large Prussian cityl and were directed to the best dentist in town. Ernie was too
ill to recognize him. but I immediately knew it was old Maurice Chase. XYhile he
drilled on the tooth. Chase said he had an assistant whom we might remember-and
so we did. It was Veronica Brockhausl
.Iustl as we again reached the street, a sight-seeing bus was wrecked. and we
helped to remove the injured. They included Robert and Loretta McDonald, Rose
VVeinman, Eleanor Phillips, Edward Sweet, and Fred Franz. XVithout excep-
tion each was well-to-do and was spending his idle hours lolling about Europe. lYe

longed to Lorna Eager. .Ns we approached, we noticed that the villa was swarm-
ing with guests. Suddenly. a group hore down upon us, and We recognized Hollis
Moore, Dot XYelling, Hilda Crawford, and Dot Cousins. Vve found their ways
were varied. Some had married rich men, others had, hy various' means, accumu-
lated their own worldly goods. In the course of events Randolph Kenny was men-
tioned. and the crowd laughingly explained that he was getting rich hy selling the
Spaniards a device that made olives from green peas. NVe were just too late to
see Mildred Strang and Josephine XVells, who had left for the great Riviera only
We intended to visit there on our way hack. and well we dlid, for no sooner had
ive arrived, than I had to defend Harry Richards who was accused of lying ahout
his weight hefore taking an aviator's examination. l told Harry he was sure to he
hanged. and the poor fellow worried sq that he lost thirty-one pounds. XYhen he
was hrought up for trial and weighed in court, he weighted only l-l7 pounds. so we
won the case.
XYe then deoided to start hack. lt seemed good to arrive once more in the old
Linited States. As we came down in the home field, we saw a neatly attired gentle-
man inspecting the planes. Un coming closer we recognized Ira Ostrander. Ira
said he had had hard sledding hub now was independent and living on the royalty
from his hook "f low To Run a Ford in Seven Parts."
This, dear Editor, concludes my most interesting adventure. Next year, with
your aid, I hope to get all of our old friends hack again to a class of 'ZS reunion.
OR the attentive, consideration of the remaining Senior High pupils, XYe. the
unequaled class of 'X-X" grades during the three years of our dynamic exist-
ence under the protective roof of dear Alma Mater, N. H. S., feel that our
brilliant career is to be ended by an untimely death caused by the explosion of the
powerful dynamite heretofore mentioned.
Therefore. XYe. the class of 1928, do, hereby. magnanimously, unselhshly,
equally, individually, and happily, publish this fat will and new testament.

siderate on long assignments and unprepared lessons, XVe. the Senior Class. do
solemnly pledge to keep secret forever from the remaining pupils, all those easy
assignments. This is pledged so that you, dear faculty. will receive no unpopu-
larity through your generosity.

the XYanderer." with the hope that it may be a fair warning to stop, look, and listen

To The Class of '29
Yea, I've grown feeble and weary,
And my hair has long been grey:
I can't do the things I once could do,
Or move in the same old way:
It's true I've gotten older,
As most folks are likely to do.
But all of these years I've been keeping
A story to tell to you.
Orville Adler, a lad in our school,
XVas honored above us all:
Wie made him our trusty president.
How well he answered that call!
He led our class to the head of the list,
Kept us under the Golden Rule:
And with the aid of Bernadette Van Tuyl,
Guided us true to our school.
Burton Scheib, Olll' treasurer,
Guarded our storeroom of gold:
I think I see him as he is today-
A miser, greedy and old.
I-Ie was the leader of yells at the games,
Made us yell till our voices were hoarse,
But we won those games, and won withf a smile,
And we lost without remorse.
Our Junior Play was the best of the year-
Interesting, clever, and gay,
Our players were all the pride of the school,
I wonder how many are acting today?
Our Junior Party went oi? with a bang,
All shouting and laughter and vim,
The vision stands out in my mind like a flash-
I pray that it never grows dim!
I look back on that class today.
And think of the fun we hadg
I remember them all-the angelic,
The naughty, the good, and the bad.
And now as my story is nearly done,
I shout and rise to my feet:
"Say what you will of another class,
The Class of '29 can't be beat l"

s FRESHAIEN. we looked forward with eager anticipation to the time whei
we would be taken into the mighty halls of Senior High and regarded as
some of their number. But as Sophomores. we believe ourselves to be the
first and only class in Niles High School to fail to respect our upper classmen, the
juniors and the Seniors.
Although we were looked upon as very unworthy creatures, we were given
the privilege of electing a body of officers to guide us through our Sophomore year.
It was then that we horrified the faculty and our upper classmen by displaying a
very worldly knowledge in stufhng the ballot box. However, the results of this
meeting were that Donald Winlack was elected first oflicer of our crew, Annamae
Downs. the second officer or vice-president, and Sidney Cornell, the secretary
and custodian of our meager finances. A committee was immediately appointed
to make arrangements for the Sophomore Party to be held late in November.
.Xt the end of the first six weeks, it was discovered that we, the Sophomores,
had earned so many A's that even the mighty CPB Seniors had to look to their
laurels. and resolve to get those blue slips 0. K.'d.
Our class also gave much to the athletic teams of our Alma Mater. In foot-
ball. basket ball. and track, the Sophomores were well represented.
Then came june, when we paid our final obligations to N. H. S. as Sopho-
mores and passed on to the more exalted rank of Juniors.
.Xnd, with such a start, we feel that we can uphold and increase the good repu-
tation of Niles lligh in scholarship, athletics. and loyalty. -DONALD ELDER.

The negative team started the season with a victory over our old rival in all
scholastic contests. St. Joe. XVith remarkable dexterity the Niles team upheld its
ease and battled its opponents to such a degree that they were comparatively speech-
less. 1Vhile St. Joe had the backing of the whole high school, the Niles team had
the support of only a few persons.
The Niles team received seven points this season. one point given for each
judges vote and an additional point for a unanimous decision. This number is not
enough for entrance in the state contest which requires 12 or 13 points.
The season on the whole was an even break, the team both winning two and
losing two debates. Much credit is due the coach Miss Lohr.
The members of the team will be awarded letters and sweaters for their good

N Friday evening, .-Xpril 13th. the Junior Class presented "The Youngest'
by Phillip Barry. the author of "You and I" and many other recent plays
which have been successfully produced on the stage.
This play is a yery human and appealing comedy of contemporary .Xmerican
life. It is an ingenious variation of the Cinderella theme. in which the hero. a clown
trodden son. comes into contact with a charming husy body. The "youngest" event-
ually learns to assert himself and turns upon his oppressors in splendid style.
The cast of characters was as follows:

THE :KRT CLUB
The Art Club. sponsored by Miss Gaterman. launched its members on their
artistic careers. Among the many enterprises the club undertook were clay-
working. designs in wood-work, making tea tiles and posters. and soap carv-
ing. In clay modeling the members produced book-ends, and from wood-carving
they have made bread boards. The posters made in this club have been used to ad-
vertise high school basketball games, matinee dances. and other school functions.

The club met every Thursday at which time interesting phases of public speak-

'TUE FRENCH CLUB
The French Club. sponsored by Miss Lawrence, was perhaps one of the most
interesting clubs in school. During the first semester the membership was large
and the time was used more for the study and preparation of daily work in French.
lt was planned to change the club during the last semester. Although the
membership was smaller, the new plan proved to be much more interesting and
The class took a trip abroad. At first there were reports on. the French rail-
roads. and then we arrived in Paris which proved to be interesting as we learned
many French habits and customs. Next we went to Normandie and from there
continued through the provinces, visiting things of interest in each.
A great many French games were provided by members of the club, songs
were memorized, and French refreslnnents were often served.
The members agreed that this club was very interesting which was largely due
to the great efforts of our instructor, Miss Lawrence.

Tnii GntI.s' GLEE CLVB
All of the summers' scranaders were caged and put to use about the Hrst week
in September. Our Clee Club was to attempt many great things, so a series of
preliminary songs were put before us to get our lungs in shape. XVe learned Span-
ish accents and pirates lingo in our operetta "Captain Crossbonesf' and we really
became quite well prepared for the dialect songs we were to sing in the tourna-
ment. l ln one occasion we felt that we had disgraced ourselves, so the next time
we were asked to sing. we worked hard, did our best. and left the final verdict
up to the student body.
XYith the beginning of the new semester, our alto ranks were greatly aug-
mented, and with the help of these new members we were able to make fair imi-
tations of banjos, bull-frogs, mandolins, or whatever our course required.
The big event of the year, the Kalamazoo tournament, made intensive prac-
tice necessary, and it was with reluctance that Miss XVilbur finally had to chose
the lucky twenty-five.
.Xt last the anticipated time arrived and we made our eventful journey to
Kalamazoo with prayers in our hearts and an attitude which designated our in-
tent to "bring home the bacon."

The Industrial .Xrts Club, sponsored by Mr. Quigley, was organized so that
the members could, at any tfme, do their duty in improving facilities about the
The club was divided into three groups under the leaderships of Lawrence
Blake, Gaylord Teske, and Dick VVilliams.
Members of the club who were associated with various factories in Niles se-
cured permits to take the club through them, so that the members might see the
operation of the machinery
The club received from Mr, Collisi a list of objects which were needed to re-
place others which had been abused by constant use in the gym. Hurdles for track
work were made, the old ones having been broken by unsuccessful participants.
The next project was to improve the basketball score board in the gym by
perfecting electric numerals ranging from 0 to 0, placed in boxes l5 in. by IS in..
with two boxes for each score. This device was operated by a system of switches
at the timer-'s desk.

The Library Club accomplished some worth while work under the direction
of Mrs. Rutz, the librarian of Niles Senior High. During the first few weeks,
the principles of library penmanship were practiced, and later, the various meth-
ods of card-filing, book-labeling, and cataloguing were studied in order that the
club might re-catalogue each book and put the library in better condition.
Most of the members were student librarians, and the purpose of the club
was to train them to be more eflicient in this work and to prepare the other stu-
dents to carry on the job in the future.

THE TRAVEL CLUB
New c1.L'B was introduced into Niles High School this semester and was ap-
propriately named the "Travel Club." It was sponsored by Miss Talburt,
who added to the pleasure and knowledge of the organization by telling of
her trip to, and adventures in, Europe. Several outside speakers responded to the
call to speak before the club, and furnished its members with humorous, witty, and
educational talks. Various members told of their own trips both abroad and in our
own country, The VVest as a whole, and California as a state were thoroughly dis-
cussed topics. Uccasicnally foreign cities, such as London, Paris, Venice, and Ge-
nera, were touched upon. livery member of the club sincerely felt that no matter
how much he had read or traveled, he profited immensely by being present at the
wcekg' sessions of tlie Travel Club.

oxcu li.-we sounded the call for footlmall candidates on the First day of school.
Of the forty-live who turned out. only four were letter men. The remainder
were underclassmen with little or no foothall experience. The letter men
who returned were llruycker. Ostrander. and Laverty.
lt was a huge task that faced the coaches on that first day: the task of making
a foothall team that would withstand a tough schedule. out of a handful of green
material. Things were just getting well under way when Coach Rahe resigned
and .Xssistant Coach 4 llson assumed full charge of the squad. This happened just
two days hefore the first game. g
Niles opened its gridiron season at Plym Park on Saturday, September 2-l, hy
defeating Cassopolis 18-O. .Xs Cass had a veteran team. it was expected that Niles's
inexperienced eleven would have a much harder hattle than it really did have.
Coach I llson gave every man a chance to play sometime during that game.
The reserves met the Galien regulars on the following Friday and defeated
them 25-O. The game was played at Galien on a half suhmerged cornfield, and
the lioys felt the need of their swamp cleats.
Un Saturday, Uctol-er 3. the team received the worst druhhing that a Niles
footlall team has ever received, at the hands of Pawl Paw. Niles was completely
outplayed hy a far superior team. The Niles boys fought hard hut they did
not fight together. XYhen the final whistle hlew. Paw Paw had piled up fifty
points and Niles not any. This Paw Paw team is the same one that held Niles
to a scoreless tie last year.
ln a hard fought liattle on the next Saturday, the team nosed out a 13-ll vic-
tory from Three Uaks. The game was marked hy many penalties and errors on
the part of lmoth teams. The point that won the game for Niles was made after the
first touchdown on a trick pass play instead of the usual drop kick.
Niles was defeated hy St. joe at XYells Held on October 22, by a score of
25-O. The north end team did all its scoring in the first half. Charles Bruycker,
who played most of the game with a dislocated shoulder, starred for the losers.

Un Hctoher ZW, Niles lost to liuchanan on their held by a score off 19-0.
liuchanan's light lint fast team made one marker hy means of a hrilliant running
attack, and the other two on long passes.
Niles hattled the strong Otsego eleven to a scoreless tie at Plym Park on
Novemher 5. The team gained more yards than Otsego. and twice came very
near to scoring. They did the unexpected when they held Otsego. As Otsego
had defeated liuchanan on the previous Saturday, it was thought that they would
heat Niles. lint their victorious march was checked.

On .Xrmistice Day Niles was defeated hy the strong Three Rivers eleven. The
game was quite even during the first half. Three Rivers scored one touch down.
and Niles came yery near to it. But with the aid of the lnreaks in the second
half, Three Rivers succeeded in making twenty-seyen more points, and the final
score was 33-O.
Niles was defeated liy Dowagiac on their new held on the XYednesday liefore
Thankgiving. Niles was out weighed twenty-live pounds to the man. The score
was 33-0 until the last few minutes of play when Niles completed a long pass
which resulted in a touchdown. The final score was 33-7.
At the end of the season sixteen men were awarded letters. All hut live of
them, who are seniors, will return next year. The live men who graduate are
Bruyck-er. Layerty, hlauch. Finley, and Kenny. As there will lie a full team of
letter men back next year, we should experience a very prosperous season. The
letter men who will return are Grimes, L, Clstrander, Groat, XYilliams. Rolfe, Cl.
Smith, li. Smith, G. Bruycker. Dulin. Kililinger, and P. Ostrander.

RALPH LAVERTY, who won his letter at tackle last year, was injured shortly
after the opening of the season and unalile to play after that. As l.ayerty had size
and experience, the coaches found it hard to replace him. This was his last year
in a Niles footlwall uniform.

strongest positions in the line in 1928.
BEN Gito.xT, the smallest man on the First team, made up for his lack of size
in speed. Ben played quarter-hack at the beginning of the season hut was later
placed at half-hack. lle showed ability at running hack punts and hitting the ends.
Next year will be his third year out for football. and he should make even a hetter
showing than he made this year.
Tnoxms CRIMES played guard on the second team last year. He showed such
a knowledge of the game when he appeared for practice this year, that the coach
placed him at quarter-back, and there he played most of the season. Tom was a
good field general for having had so little experience, and he will prove a valuable
man next year.
RCWISERT' SMITH played end last season and part of this season. Ile was shifted
to half-hack in the middle of the season and proved his ability to carry the hall
in a second team game. After that he was a regular, and won his letter playing in
the hackfield. Bob will he out for football next season.

fore the season was half over. Claude was playing end on the first team, and he won
his letter because of his ability to snacr wasses and tackle.
P.xtfI. CJSTRANDER, who is only a sophomore, was one of the best line plungers
on the team. He was shifted from the line to the backlield, and there he earned
his letter. l'aul has two more years on the football team, and he may prove to he

ALLEN LJVLIN, a freshman guard. has a long athletic career ahead of him. He
played a hard clean brand of football all season and should be valuable material

Charles's footsteps. George has been playing good football all season, making up in

URN it was learned that Ray "lluckey" Dahman had heen secured to coach
our hasltethall team. prospects for a successful season immediately hright-
ened. Coach Dahman's first Call for material was generously responded to
hy about sixty hoys. Qf this numher Maurice Chase and Lloyd Ustrander were
the only letter men from last season. There were, however. a few men who had
had considerahle experience on last year's team. Dahmau was assisted in his coach-
ing, in the early part of the season, hy Tom Farrell. a former Niles lligh SClioul
athlete. Three days before the Benton llarhor game Dahman took charge of the
practice in person and had the team whipped into fairly good shape when Deeemher
2 rolled around.
That evening Niles opened its season hy meeting Benton Harhor on Benton
Harbors floor. The game was started with a hang hy Niles who took the lead
hy making two foul shots, hut we were soon overpowered hy our faster and bigger
opponents. The remarkahle shooting of lllack. llenton Harhor's star center. left
Niles on the small end of the score as the half ended, llenton llarhor changed
its entire line up in the second half. hut when the Gold and lllue hegan slowly to
creep up, thought hetter of the matter and put the First string hack in. The game
ended with the Northenders leading 23-0.
We were not discouraged at being defeated by the class AX school, and on the
following Friday we gave Nl me of their medicine to South Haven. The Niles squad
opened its home Hoor season by handing the Dutchmen a 23-15 defeat. VVe took
the scoring lead in the ear ly yart of the game and not once during the game were
we on the small end of the score. Our opponents were, however, always close
enough behind to make the game interesting. Niles employed the tive man defence
and the South llay en team the four man.
Niles invaded Dowagiac on the next Friday evening and brought home a vic-
tory which evened things up between us in view of the defeat they gave us in foot-
ball. llowagiac Hashed an air tight defence and a fast breaking offence which
Niles found quite troublesome at times. On the other hand, Niles presented an at-
tack which the Round Uakers found even harder to meet as the score of the game
will indicate. The final result was Niles 25. Dowagiac 20.
lluchanan came to Niles on December 23 but did not return home with the
laurels of victory as they had done in the same game last year. The score was
N-'l in favor of them at the half and 16-16 at the end of the third quarter. Bu-
chanan started out to sprint at the start of the last period and left Niles trailing
by two baskets, but our boys were not to le so easily discouraged. They rallied
around the l-ilue and Gold banner and scored ten points in the last two minutes of
play, leavfng their opponents on the small end as the final whistle blew.
Niles met its second defeat of the year at the hands of St. joseph. The
"Howeites" led Niles the entire game. This aggregation led by Captain Zitta
proved a little too speedy for our boys who were unable to hit their usual stride
and as a result were defeated .23-W. Zitta. the victors' star center, was responsible
for 12 of their points.
Determined to avenge the St. joseph defeat by heating some one, the Niles
boys went to Three Rivers and nicely accomplished their purpose. Richards played
one of the best games in his careerg he did most of the scoring for Niles, and left
the game with a total of 17 points to his credit. Niles was never pressed very hard.
and as a result made a large percentage of their attempted baskets. Had we been as
accurate in our lasket shooting during the St. Joseph game as we were in this game,
no doubt we could have beaten them. Niles brought 32 points home with them and
left only 119 at Three Rivers to console them for their loss.
The Paw Paw Redbirds were the next team on our schedule. They came to
Niles with the idea of beating our basketball team as they had the football team
a few months earlier. Our opponents found the going a little tougher than they
had planned. Niles was leading them 14-ll at the half. The score was 13 all at
the end of the third quarter. ln the last quarter the Redbirds, chiefly by means of
football tactics, slowly crept into the lead and Won the game 21-17. Richards and
lforler, playing their last game of basketball for Niles, made excellent showings.
Niles dropped a hard fought game to the giants from Three Oaks on the
following Friday evening. lYe started the fireworks by sinking a basket. but it
was only a short time until the big Uakers made three long shots and took the lead
out uf Niles's hands, The half ended with the visitors still leading 18-14. XVith
the score a tie at tle end of the third quarter, Niles fought desperately to win, but
the cards were against them. The Three Oakers sunk one basket after another,
and Niles seemed unable to put any of them through the hoop. The final whistle
found Niles trailing 32-26.
The next game on the docket was Dowagiac at Niles. Our boys decisively
da-fcati-rl them in a rough and ready battle 33-1-1. The overwhelming victory was
partially due to the fact that Foach llahman changed the style of defence from
ll"iL'f N 1,1 ntjr-youll
the zone to the man to man type. Meyer ,a new center, was the high point man of
the game. Our substitutes held the Indians scoreless in most of the last half. To-
ward the end our regulars were rushed in again. and they ran up the rest of the
35 points .
On Friday the Niles aggregation went to Buchanan to play the Bucks in
their second encounter of the season. The first half was characterized by some
slow easy basketball on the part of Niles although they did manage to get a two
point lead on Buchanan by half time. Coach Dahman jacked the team up a little
during the half and when they came out on the iioor again, they proved to be a
different team. Hitting the hoop regularly f1'om then on. Niles scored 2-1 points
in half as many minutes, which made the final score SO-1-1 in their favor. Max
Schulke. recently advanced to the varsity from the reserve squad. cinched his po-
sition on the first team by making 10 of Niles's 30 points.
On the evening following the Buchanan encounter, Three Rivers came to
Niles to try and take revenge for the previous defeat. The Chase. Meyer, Schulke
trio. worked perfectly, slipped through their opponents defence. and bombarded
the basket until the ball found its way through. The outcome of the game was
never in doubt. and the visitors had to journey home without having avenged them-
selves. The final result was 22-12.
Our team was defeated in a very close battle with the Paw Paw "football"
team at Paw Paw on February 18. The "north end bone-crushers" came out of
the contest the victors, but only by one point. Niles was ahead of her big oppo-
nents all the game except for a few fatal minutes at the end, and then Paw Paw.
chiefiy by means of football tactics, came to the front and won the game Z-1-23.
For the second time of the season Niles was humbled by the seemingly in-
vincible St. Joseph aggregation on St. loe's floor. Niles took a two point lead
early in the game but was unable to maintain it. St. Joseph was ahead until the
end of the third quarter. which ended in a tie 1-l-l-1. ln the last few minutes of
play the north enders dropped three baskets and left Niles on the small end of the
score 24-16. This game was one of the closest basketball games that has been
played between the two schools for some years.
The Niles five met and defeated the Berrien Springs team by a score of 39-7.
Niles started out to play a slow listless game but ended up with some live basketball.
Meyer sank 23 of Niles's 39 points.
The Gold and Blue quintet Finished up its regular season in line style by de-
feating South Haven at South Haven. The Dutchmen were only able to score 9
points to the 38 scored by Niles. XYaterson, one of our star guards, was high point
man with a total of 10 points to his credit. Ostrander played a remarkable defen-
sive game at guard against the onslaught of the fiying Dutchmen.
Un the last night of the District Tournament Niles met its ancient rival, St.
-loseph, in one of the closest encounters that the Niles gym has ever witnessed.
The score was S-9 at the half in favor of Niles. From here on the battle raged in
all its fury. First one team was ahead. then the other, and finally the game ended
in a 14-1-1 tie. ln the resulting over time period the visitors slopped in a Field goal
from the foul line which placed the game on ice as far as Niles was concerned.
The score stood 16-1-1 as the final gun Went off, and St. -loseph had for the third
time in one season spread disaster in the Niles ranks.
Our reserve squad has made a record this year which has not been equaled by
a Niles team for some years. The second team played Fifteen games. Out of this
number they won thirteen and lost only two. One game was lost to Benton Harbor
by a close score 7-5 and the other to St. joseph in an 18-19 battle. The Niles re-
serves piled up a total of 521 points to 172 made by their opponents.

years of service on the. squad. Out for the first time last year, Maurice made his

second string. This year a position which he had merited by his remarkable de-

of the year. and when he was at his post, we were almost sure to get the jump.
Nleyer and Lockard alternated at the same position in the second semester.
FREDERICK Maviakfineligible for the first half, practiced with the team re-
gardless, and as a result, when the second semester arrived, he was awarded a
regular position on the team. He held his place because of his unusual ability
to handle the ball, to pass. dribble, and shoot. Meyer has played "on and off"

of the fioor when he needed the points.

when the team needed them most. His absence during the second semester was felt.
Al.'XXEI, SCfIl'LKE-Still' forward on the second team was promoted to First
string in February. He proved his worth by pulling down high point honors in the
l-luchanan game. From then he held a regular position on the team and he per-

in his earning a letter.

things from him next year.

Our lFootlhall Coach
OUTBALL was coached this year hy .Xlliin Olson. He graduated from Alliian
Collegi: in '25 and attended the Rockne-Kleanwell coaching school at Xotre
Dame in the summer of '26, Mr. Olson did not succeed in winning a foot-
hall letter in high school, hut he was awarded a footlmall monogram for three Years
in succession at college and was twice named "All State" guard. Mr. Olson was
handicapped from the start in turning out last year's football team hecause of a
lack of experienced material and also liecause he was not given charge of the squad
until the eve of the lirst game. Mr. Olson has seen to it that next year's coach
will not lind himself in the saute predicament regarding material, hy sending him
eleven letter men to start the season with.
Our Basketball Coach
,xv 1 licckrivi lJ.xiixiAN. who will graduate from Notre Dame this year. was
secured to coach our liaskethall team only a few weeks licfore the opening of
the season. .-Xs in footliall experienced material was rather scarce, and it re-
quired no little skill to develop a haslqetlmall team under the cricumstances. Dahman
not only developed a team hut gave experience to a host of young players who will
lie availahle in future years.
"Bucky" was very active in Notre Dame athletic circles. He played for two
years as halfhack on the footliall team and was chosen for the guard position on
tlte "All XYestern" lvasketliall team.
Our Track Coach
nic track squad of 'JN will lie coached hy Claudius Collisi, who has had a great
deal of track experience in lmoth high school and college. Ks a memlmer ul- the
XYestern State Normal track team. he made records in the KWH mile and three-
quarter mile runs. Besides the distance runs he completed in the high jump and
pole vault. For four years he held a lierth on the college cross country team, and
he established a state record on the old cross country course at Kalamazoo,
Mr. Collisi is very much interested in Y. Rl. C. .X work which he has in-
dulged in through the summer months. llc liasorganized the "l,eaders' Chili" in
this school as a direct outgrowth of the Y. Rl. Lf A. program.
Natlona Athletic Scholarship Society
Wo viaxks .too a chapter of the National .Xthletic Scholarship Society for
Secondary Schools was introduced into the Niles High School. Since that
time. the memhership has increased.
The purpose of this organization, as stated in its constitution, is "to foster
high scholarship among hoy athletes. to stimulate a desire for halanced training,
In elevate the ideas of sportsmanship, and to develop more outstanding leaders
in the secondary schools of the United States."
The memliership of the society is restricted to those students earning an athletic
letter in one of the four major sports 1 foothall, hasehall, haskethall, or trackl or in
two minor sports. whose scholastic average for three consecutive semesters is as
high or higher than the general average of the school, and who have exemplified a
high type of citizenship and sportsmanship. ,X hoy elected to a membership in this
honorary society is chosen under the supervision of the principal of the school
'lin he :i memher of this organization is no small honorg indeed. it is quite
at distinction. lt is no easy taslj for an athlete to he out for practice every night
until after Five-thirty, and still have the reserve energy and initiative to do his
home work and thi it well. Much credit is therefore due to those athletes qualify-
ing for this society. The reward for heconiing a ntemlier of the organization is 3
handsome solid gold emlilem of the design shown at the top of this page.
The honor of lielonging to the .Xthletic Scholarship Society should. he incen-
tive enough for every athlete In keep up in his studies, and for every scholar
to lvecome an athlete.

education program through training and leadership among others. The Niles club
has followed the association! program except in religious training. and has de-
veloped into a strong organization recognized for service, loyalty, and fellowship.

is made possible and the instruction of one physical director can serve many.
Each week the club had forty-live minutes of theory and one and one-half
hours of practice. The theory consisted of gymnastic nomenclature. study of the
bodlii organization work. and general instruction. ln practice the meeting was for-
mal during the first of the period. The remainder of the time was spent informally
