This year, in keep- ing with this long-established tradition, the class of 1944 proudly presents our version of the TATTLER. ln browsing through its pages you will find pictures of every person in school, a feature not often found in a pubication of this type. A photo-record of the years's activities, many candid snapshots, and car- toons of our faculty add life to its pages. A page of portraits of boys, recently in the halls of Niles High, now in the service of their country, recalls a sub- ject which is foremost in our minds today-the War. Evidences of this great struggle can be seen on all sides in Niles High. The stepped up physical- fitness program is aimed at preparing the boys for the rigors of military life. Courses in radio, radio tech, and aeronautics have a direct bearing on future careers in the army and navy. Therefore, this year's publication is not lust another TATTLERQ it is a permanent record of Niles High "all out for victory." r Table of Contents Dedication ................ .... ..................i...... .-.. 5 Board of Education ......

Lehman. Mr. Lehman is a graduate ot the University of Michigan, where he received his A. B. and M, A. degrees. A member of the faculty tor ten years, Mr. Lehman taught typing until two years ago when he took over the Physics Department and has since added courses in aeronautics, radio code, and radio tech, which will be of great value to those boys who are going into service. Mr. Lehman is a man of many interests. He installed our Public Address system throughout the school, in the auditorium, and in both gyms. He is responsible for the upkeep and running of this system. At every auditorium program, play, gym show, variety show, and other school func- tions, and even at football games he is "Iohnny on the spot" to handle the working of the system. for many years he has taken special pictures tor the Tuttler including those on the "Whos Who" pages. His pleasing personality and dry sense of humor have won him the respect and admiration of everyone who knows him. Heading clockwise in the pictures above, encircling the central portrait, we show him teach- ing classes in Radio Tech, Physics, and Aeronautics, making hay while the sun shines on his farm west of Niles and working his way to school tnot through school? after a heavy snow-tall. ln the triangular insert he shows his versatility by shingling the root of his garage. Next is an example of his skill as a photographer which graced a previous Tattler and in the last picture he records vital statistics on the hobby nearest his heart, his tive-year-old daughter, Saraiane. page four Administration BOARD OF EDUCATION Mrs. T. F. Young Mr. Frank G. French President Vice-Presiden! Mr. I. Walter Wood Secretary Mr. Paul Blackmond Mr. Lewis I. Krell Treasurer Trustee page siqr The American educational system has un- dergone several important changes during the two years since the Iapanese struck at Pearl Harbor. W'e have witnessed the de- velopment of and the tremendous expansion in pre-induction courses. Emphasis has been placed on the teaching of mathematics, phys- ics, chemistry, radio, aeronautics, shop work, English, and physical fitness-for these sub- jects are of importance to the Army and Navy. Since August l9, 1942, when the War Man- power Commission announced that "all able- bodied male students are destined for the armed forces," the future education of the American youth upon reaching his eighteenth birthday has been in many respects a re- sponsibility of the Army and the Navy. Many of the courses for girls have also been changed to prepare them for their new im- portant tasks. The administering of this program and the attending to the great variety of duties, many of which must be performed daily to keep the entire system operating efficiently, are my responsibilities as principal of Niles lunior- Senior High School. W My Under the greatest handicap of any class in recent years, the 1944 graduating class has measured up. lt has been a source of great satisfaction to the faculty to see members of this class and other re- cent graduaies meet their new problems with energy and skill. Their records in the armed services have been a credit to themselves and to Niles High School. '71 60. NEWTON S. BACON: Western Michigan College of Education, B. S., University ot Michigan, M.

Barbara Malotte, a soprano soloist, came from Chicago to handle the numerous parts. Other solo parts were taken by Walter Boyolston, tenor, and Evan Rutter, bass. The operetta came as a sur- prise to music lovers as a pleasant addition to the vocal departments minstrel show, a touch-up version of the annual Variety Show. The choir this year, under Franklin LeBar's direction, has concentrated upon holiday testivals. At Christmas time the choir conducted a Vesper Serv- ice at the Methodist Church. prryff' .t'ru'ly-six GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Firth Row: Vivian Bullen, Mary Moyer, Betty jo Medders.

He was assisted by Miss Clevering, Miss Poe, Miss Sprague, Mrs. l-loffmaster, Mrs. Smith, and Mr. Sollman. The choir, girls' glee, boys' glee, girls' sextet, boys' octet, triple trio, and spe- cial choruses furnished the music. The first part of the performance, featuring a Mississippi Show Boat, pic- tured the river craft slowly coming into view, while a tenth grade chorus sanq "Here Comes Dat Show Boat." The whole countryside was waiting for the boat. Dressed in gay costume they greeted friends as the boat tied up to the river wharf. The master of ceremonies was lack Worrell. The costumes of the gay 90's were very picturesque. They were made of an attractive sateen material. The different colored lights enhanced the beauty of them and made a lovely setting. One of the specialty numbers was cleverly done to the tune of "Strolling Through the Park" by the junior girls. There was a tap dance executed by some ninth grade girls to that perennial favorite tune "Yankee Doodle." The girls' glee club sang "When Day ls Done" and "l-leah de Wind A Blowin'." The boys octet sang an old time Negro song, "De Glory Road." A laughable skit, a human Xylophone composed of boys instead of tones added much enjoyment to the show. One of the tones was off-key, and it took truch hard work by all to get it in tune. Sherlock Holmes and Watson also added much to the show.

This was written by Mr. Sollman and received much applause. The chorus sang with appropriate gestures "Some Little Bug Will Find You Some Day." Some gals gave riddles and poems that were received with much approval. The second half, the olio, took place inside the show boat. The setting was a huge Negro mammy's head. The second half opened with the chorus singing "Alexander's Ragtime Band." This was followed by a banjo number and a harmonica duet. After this a vocal duet was skillfully done to the tune of "Nobody" which was made fa- mous by Bert Williams, The girls' sextette sang that all-time hit parader "Surn- mertimef' The interlocutor, Omer Oaks, made his grand entrance by bursting forth from the mammy's mouth. He was dressed in white tails. There were eight end men, Leonard Corey, Dan Williams, Bill Downey, Denver Pointer, john Wolf, Russell Queen, Bill Leonard, and Dickson Rutter. They all wore wigs and added an abundance of merriment with their quips and actions. The choir sang some numbers with appropriate actions. They were dressed in typical minstrel costumes with collars, ties, hats, in chartreuse and magenta. The numbers included "l Got Plenty of Nothin'," "Set Down, Servant," and "Going to Heaven on a Missouri Mule." V The show closed with that ever popular number, "Hallelujah" from "Hit the Deck" by Youmans. From the remarks made by the audience the show was enjoyed as much by the audience as the music department enjoyed putting it on. pugfr' f0I'fjl-l'ij7llif BOYS' G-LEE CLUB Fourth Row: james Cooney, Edward Martin, jack Maurer, Robert Ricks, james Steiner, joe White.

When the season began to roll around, however, Mr. Ioseph Whitwam took over the job of coaching. This was all added to his regular duties as a physical education instructor, which was larger this year than ever. before because of the loss of the Iunior High instructor. Mr. Whitwam took on the extra work and responsibility very willingly and both the school and the team owe him a vote of thanks, which we Wish to express here. Practice got under way on September first and the team began to prepare for the first game with South Bend Catholic. The game was played' here and the two teams battled it out to wind up with a six to six tie. Niles kept possession of the ball during most of the game but just couldn't seem to get it over that goal line more than once. The next game was here also with South Haven. It was a cold wet day and the two teams battled up and down the field only to end the game in another tie, this time nothing to nothing. The boys then moved out of town to play Buchanan. It proved to be a bad night for them and the game ended in another tie, seven to seven. This made the third tie game and every- one began to think that we had a jinxed team. The next game, however, the spell was broken, although not for the better. They played St. Ioseph on our own field and went down to defeat by a score of twelve to six. Next on the list came the Conference champs, Dowagiac.

A one sport man, Don devotes most of his time to playing and training for basketball. One of the best basketball players this school has seen Don will be missed next year like no other one man. BOB CUTLER was the mouthpiece for the Vikings and did most of the talk- ing about, with, and for the team. Passing was Bob's foremost attribute and his passes set up many a bucket. Along with passing, however, he did his share of scoring and fell short of Cashbaugh and Zordel by only a slight margin. His teammates honored him by electing him honorary captain for the season at the annual letter presentations. Bob graduates in Iune, and his constant jabber will leave the Niles locker room comparatively and pleasantly silent. BILL CASHBAUGH was a hard hitting, pile driving, guard of the Niles varsity. By dead eye long shots, expert passing, and fine leadership, Bill made himself a familiar and consoling sight to Niles fans. Bill scored more free throws than any other one man on the squad and was second in number of field goals. Bill is strictly a fightin' man but reserves it for the gridiron and the hardwood. A Iunior this year, Bill will be back next year to lead the Viking spearhead. page siazty DON ARNOLD, although the smallest man on the squad, deserves a large share of the laurels accorded the team. His speed and outstanding defensive ability added to a great fighting spirit made him a standout and a favorite with the crowds. Fans will remember him also as a half-back on this year's eleven. This is Don's last year of competition. WALT WlLSON'S forte of intercepting passes and dribbles put more than one opponent on unsteady ground during the past season. Despite his lack of height, Walt was always able to keep his man under control. As a football player he made his mark with his kicking and running ability. Niles fans will be glad to know that Walt has another year of competition. IOHN WEGNER started the season as a member of the reserve team, but his continued fine performances soon earned him a place on the varsity. Unorthodox shooting was Iohn's greatest love, and it placed him in a class apart in the eyes of his coach and the fans. A junior, Iohn will be a boy to i watch next year. JOHN GRAHAM, an aggressive football guard, carried his fighting spirit to the basketball court during the early part of the season. Repeating his role of guard, his stocky figure was a familiar sight of the hardwood until gradua- tion ended his career at mid-season. HAROLD FINLEY took a large share of the laurels as the basketball sea- son got underway. However, graduation at the end of the first semester stole him from the team. "Scoot's" performances as a rugged member of the Niles' football line helped to make him a well known Niles athlete. IOHN LABERTEAUX is a senior and leaves the squad this year. Iohn was Don Zordel's understudy and hence spent most of the season on the bench. Being the tallest man on the squad, lohn was an artist with tip-in shots. The annual free throw medal went to Iohn this year with twenty-four out of thirty, the highest score ever achieved and possibly an all time high. pane' sixty-our EUGENE GORTON received the distinction of being the only sophomore on the varsity. As a result of his hard-driving game, "Ieep" was brought from the reserves to the varsity Where he ably kept up the traditions of his class. Big and talented, he should be an asset to future Niles teams. IERRY HBERGH MONEHAN was one of the boys who had a ringside seat all year but saw action from a purely objective viewpoint. A senior, ferry was one of the best boys on the squad but ineligibility at the beginning of the sea- son kept him out of the line-up. Blond-haired, blue-eyed, Irishman, Ierry's last minute entrance never failed to ring forth shouts of glee from girl fans. Famous for his puns "Berg" kept bench morale high throughout the season. punt' si.1'ly-llro PAUL PETERSON is a junior this year and will be back next year. Paul didn't get in much this year but kept life on the bench lively by organizing his famous "Pineboard Kids" of which he made himself a charter member. Paul will probably graduate from this club next year and be seen by Niles fans as an important cog in the Viking offense. CHARLES DREIBELBIS, a junior, is another of the boys who won a posi- tion on the varsity through outstanding work with the reserves. "lake" won the admiration of his teammates through his self-enforced training rules. He is an other Viking who Will bear watching next year. IACK HAND, lanky Iunior, came up from the second team about tournament time. He played center this year and shows a great deal of promise for next year's varsity. Basketball Season From the first starting Whistle to the final gun Niles basketball fans en- joyed a thrill-packed and exiciting season. Emerging from the season's compe- tition as conference and regional champions the Vikings added another glo- rious page to their long basketball tradition. The season began with Coach loe Whitwam holding the reins. After seven games he turned them over to a former Niles athlete, Coach Frank Ham. Basing their attack on a fast break and pivot system they won fourteen out of eighteen games. Spectacular pass interceptions and brilliant ball hand- ling more than once spelled the difference between victory and defeat. The boys went to the district tournament Wearing a conference crown. In five thrilling and closely contested games they added the district and regional champion- ships to their laurels. State championship hopes died with the 42 to 40 defeat at the hands of Grand Rapids Christian. Hopes of the Niles fans for a successful season next year are well based upon the nucleus of returning veterans from this year's season. pagn szxtu flu rv Athletic Director Whitwam and Coach Ham, with a pride in the team which we all share, put the newly won "Oscars" away in our bulging trophy case. FOOTBALL SEASON CContinued from p. 577 that the team played all year, even though they were pushed under by the small but decisive sum of one point. lt was a good hard-fought game but Niles just had one of those bad breaks that they seemed to have all season. The score was fourteen to thirteen. The next week-end the team stayed home to whip State High by the score of thirteen to nothing for their only victory of the season. State High had one of the leading teams of the Conference, which proves that Niles had the stuff but just couldn't get around to using it. The last game was played at Three Rivers. The team went up ready to issue another defeat, after being pepped up, and urged on by a huge pep meeting after school. The tables were turned on them, however, and the final score was twenty to nothing in Three Rivers' favor. Niles held them very well the first half and even made some pretty close attempts at scoring, but the last half tne team seemed to lose control. Despite the poor record Niles had a good team this year, but they just couldn't get going and it also seemed that the breaks went against them hard and heavy all season. ' SENIOR PLAY CContinued from p. 697 voice that accompanies an habitual sphinx-like expression. He is dignified at all times, fastidious and dresses well. Mr. Coburn, Dottie's father, is very ably portrayed by jack Worrell. He is a successful business man turned politician. He is on the Board of Censors in Boston-of some wealth, just enough to be snobbish. He explodes rather easily, but tries to maintain his dignity. The first cop, was played by Ed Champion. He is the intellectual type of policeman-a career man. He tries very hard and wants to be obliging. The second cop, played by Bill Gregor, is the dumb but earnest type. Even if you drew him a diagram he would not understand it. The play went off with great success wtih a full house both on Thursday and Friday nights. patgfr si.1'fy-fmu' bSh H nd Row: Gene Cannady, Bo eeler, Camden Miars, Bob amilton, Henry Curry, LaVerne Blank, Wood, Bill Downey, Walter Wilson, Coach Smith F t Row: Bill Gregor.

The play was a great success enjoyed by both adults and students. The story of the play is entertaining. Three young men and three young women are sharing an apartment. They are would-be stage folk and they have been 'driven to this community scheme by the lack of economic security. lt is a whacky plan they have in mind, for the apartment they rent is immediately above that of a Broadway producer who has quite a hit running and is about to cast a road company. They rehearse the play which he is currently produc- ing, but the problem is--how to get him upstairs to see it? The plans are fur- ther complicated by the fact that a snippy young friend of one of the girls en- ters the picture and threatens to tell the girl's father that she is living in what could most politely be called an unusual manner. Now, it so happens that the producer is an amateur chef of some considerable ability, and right in the middle of a culinary concoction he runs out of flour. He comes upstairs to bor- row a cup. At Last! The kids have him in the house, and they aren't going to let him out until he sees some evidence of their ability. So to impress him they stage a murder scene. lt is so realistic that police swarm into the scene and the misunderstanding becomes hilarious when it is discovered the girl who is play- ing the corpse has been served a Mickey Finn. However, in spite of everything, what seems to be profitable friendship springs up, and Equity dues get paid and the landlady gets the back rent, and it looks as if the future might hold some promise for the youngsters. Norman Reese, the male lead, was very well portrayed by Bob Cutler. Reese is the capable member of the group. He takes care of things, sees that appointments are kept, watches over the others like a mother hen with her chicks. Dottie Coburn, the female lead, was done by Madelon Martin, who did an excellent job in the part. Dottie is the "Dumb Dora" type, but quite cheerful and happy about everything. She is the baby of the crowd-aged 18-but seems to be even younger than that. Marge Benson, played very well by Peggy Harper, is secretly married to Tony Dennison, another of the boys in the apart- ment. She is young, dark and attractive and a little more serious than the others. She also seems a little older than the rest. Tony Dennison, the other half of the couple, was well presented by Ioe White. Tony is the handsomest of the three boys. He is tall and deeply sincere, but is inclined to be a bit discouraged at the moment. Kate Ault, the cynic of the crowd, was very well done by Cynthia Forgash. She has probably been in New York trying to get a "break" in the theater for a longer time than any of the others. George Bodell, played by Phil Hadsell, was a lazy and completely good-natured young man. His voice is slow, and he has a dry flat way of saying things. These represent the six youngsters in the apartment. Mrs. Garnet, very ably portrayed by Virginia French, is their bewildered and uncomplaining landlady. She is never quite sure whether she is watching a play or a scene from real life. Probably the answer to it all is that behind her whimsical exterior she is envious, because she is stage struck, too. Muriel Foster, played by Shirley Goodling, is Dottie's friend from Boston. She is petulant, suspicious, and later on, woe-begone, with a voice like a tired Minnie Mouse. In spite of all this, she is not unattractive. Arthur Kenny, very well portrayed by Omer Oaks, is a middle-aged man with a dry, unemotional CContinued on p. 647 page sixty-nine Cln order of appearance?

The play, written by Hilda Manning, was directed by Miss Dorothy Bridgen. Helping her were Mary Io Mack, student director, and Suzanna Taylor and Louise Posthumus, prompters. The setting is The Dibble School for Girls, a small private country school, and the central character is Editha Fair, or "Pickles," as she is known to her schoolmates. Pickles is a tomboy, athletic, popular, warm-hearted, but not greatly concerned with boys, clothes, or the usual things that occupy a girl's mind. One of her greatest friends is Mr. Burleigh, the school janitor, who is teaching her the methods of jiu jitsu that enabled him to win the war for General Pershing. Because of her popularity, Pickles has aroused the enmity of Lillian Haller, the school politician, who is adept at making trouble, and Pickles finds herself in deep water with Miss Dibble, the school mistress. Then two young aviators, Lieutenant Tony' Hamilton and Sergeant "Blimp" Reid-who stutters- are forced down in a crash on the school grounds. ln Tony, Pickles meets the first great love of her young life. But, alas! Tony's attentions are centered elsewhere: "elsewhere" being the charming person of Helen Martin, a young teacher. Enter the villains- -Duke and Pete-who are interested in a mysterious document of international significance which Tony is carrying: Pickles unwittingly enables them to secure this document, and her fortunes are at a low ebb indeed. But she has a staunch ally in old Burleigh, and how they turn the tables on the villainous pair makes for a startling and exciting climax.. As the play closes, Pickles has definitely crossed the line past adolescence and her tomboy days are behind her. page seventy-one TWENTY-IEOUDTH ANNUAL GYM SHOUI This school year saw the annual Gym Show pass the quarter century mark in quick even stride as usual. The show under the auspices of physical directors Sprague, Smith, Whitwam, and Ham, showed subtle shades of the war for the first time, with a conspicuous absence of rich costumes, gaudy dec- oration, and expensive lighting effects. Instead the show was centered upon physical fitness. Many of the former dancing acts were replaced by tumbling and calisthenics, which all in all made the show exactly what its name im- plied for the past twenty-five years. Some of the prominent acts were, senior girls' marching, sophomore girls' calisthenics, sophomore boys' jogging, sopho- more girls' football a' la Femme, sophomore boys' relays, junior boys' indoor track meet, and senior boys' heavy calisthenics. The final act the first two nights was the annual battle between juniors and seniors. This year the seniors, after leaving the score tied the first night, came through and won 21-27 the second night of competition. Pictured above are the victors clad in battle garb. page seventy-two -mf ---' Qggfffaniuy s WHO'S WHO Bernadette Madelon Margaret Katherine Knoll Martin Forbes Steigely Popular Prettiest Dancer Studious.

We put quality first because it's good common sense. Our success is built on it. And because we intend to operate for years and years to come-we've no intention now of abandoning our rigid standards. Low prices appeal to us, of course. Penney's is always searching them out and presenting them to you daily. But-ALWAYS-quality is the distin- guishing factor.

Today, as in every national crisis, the young men of America are furnishing the backbone for our armed forces. They are strong, wide-awake and eager to do their share. To these young men, America must look, not only to do the fighting, but also to take up the responsibilities of government after victory is won. Some of them enter the service as soon as their high school career is ended. Others take up the burden even before they have completed their education. Those of us at home salute these men of tomorrow. May their minds be alert at all times to protect them from the common enemy. And may their war-time experience furnish the basis for a lasting peace under which the citizens of all nations may enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
