The book and the rule, You snatch from our hands unrelenting, You usher us out, You think we are stout Wle go only partly consenting. For trouble and strife VVe meet out in lifeg Vie hesitate, feeling our weaknessg X5Ve fain would rely On you to supply Us strength to o'er come our nieekness Ere birds learn to Hy They try and they try And never loose faith in their trying. Then soon they will rise And soar in the skies And mimic the wind in their flying. Oh, then we must dare Nor yield to despairg Don't shrink from the great undertaking But buckle right down VVith a smile, not a frown, Be master of the thing we are making. So we whisper goodbye With a tear in our eye To go where our life's work is callingg Tho soldiers are brave, Yet each has a grave And each day some soldier is falling. So we must step in Determined to win The unfinished work they are leaving. And take up the task And stick to it fast For the eyes of the world are perceiving And when we at last Have Finished our task And only the tomb lies before us, Let's say with a smile Our 1ife's been worth while. For God watched continually o'er us. -Thomzls ll lnox ! 1923 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY We, the I"l'CSlllllilll Clnss of ltlltl, 11un1l1eri11g sixty-tliree, were as "llUllll'l0HS Ul'Illl5lllS', for tI1e first two or three lll01ll'llS of school. wandering l'l'tllll one huildingg to ainother for our 1'ecit':1tio11s. lYe were sorely tried, and about to give up tl1e struggle when life nssunieil 11. ln-igl1ter aspect and we entered tI1e lI0illll'll'lll, newly erected high school huilding.

OLD NOKOMIS 1923 A FRESHIVlAN'S ESSAY ON COLUMBUS "Columbus was a lnan who could uiake an egg stand on end with-out breaking it. The king ol' Spain said to t'olunihus: "Van you discover Aniel-iCa,'i 'Yesf said Colunilius, 'il' you will give ine a ship.' So he had a ship and sailed over the sea in the direction where he 'thought Anieriva ought to be found. The sailors quarreled and said they believed there was no such place. But after niany days the pilot ezune to hini and said: tCol- umbus, l see land! 'Then that is An1eriea,' 'said Columbus. When the ship came near, the land was full of black nien. Columbus said: 'ls this Aniei-iea?' 'Yes, it is,' said they. Then he said, 'I suppose you are the nig- gers?' 'Yes,' they said, 'we aref The ehiel' said: 'l suppose you are lifjllllll' bus! 'You are 1:ight,' said he. Then the chief turned to his nien and said: 'There is no help for it: we are discovered at last."'..

Raymond YVl1itten CGME OUT OF THE KITCHEN U11 F1'itl:1.r, April thirteenth, the Senior lolralnatic Club of 1 71 our high school presented a three act comedy, "t.ome Out of lhe Kitchen" adapted from Alice lbuer Milli-r's romance, "tome Out of ,lhe Kitchen." lt was probably the dramatic success ot' the year for only those of dramatic abil- ity were chosen to portray the characters and credit for their excellent training should be extended 'to Miss tlreen. The play follows the origrinal romance very closely. The scene is laid in the fairly well-to-do llangerfield mansion in Virginia. Through reversed circumstances the ll2lll,Q,'01'l!lCltT family were going to lease their home to a Northcrner and leave, when Olivia, the propeller of the fainily was conceived with an idea for the four children to remain in their home as servants. Tler ingenious power led her to become "Jane El- len". the cook, and to aright matters for all concerned. That sweet, per- suasive voice ol' Bertha llarrison would have caused any family to stand by her and any st'rangg'er to lllllll04Tl5ll'0TLV 'fall in lo O L D N O K O M I S Ve with her. 1923 Paul 1111.l1lg61'1'1B111 served i11 1l1e c111111ci1'y 111' S111i1.l11'ie1d, the l1111'1e1', 10 L'211'l'j' out the 5151101116 of his sister Olivia.

OLD NOKOMIS 'e -s 0' Z' 1923 A SENIUR FAREWELL ADDRESS With apologies to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address Four and no score years ago our public schools brought forth within this township a new class conceived in wisdom and dedicated to the pro- position that all students are intended to study early and late. lVe have been engaged in a great trial, testing whether that class or any class so conceived and so dedicated can long survive. Wie have met in the great study hall of that trysting place. YVe have come to dedicate a portion of that hall as a final loafing place to those who come after us. It is altogeth- er 'fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense we can- not dedicate, we cannot consecrate we cannot hallow this hall. The form- er students who never struggled here have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract. The faculty will little note nor long remember what they said here, but it can never 'forget what we ,, did here. lt is for them the Juniors rather to be here dedicated to the great task which we have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for them to be here dedicated to the small unfinished portion remaining before them, that from we hon- ored Seuiors they take increased devotion to the cause for which we gave our last full measure of devotion, that they here highly resolve that we Seniors shall not have labored in vain, that this institution under Mr. Thacker shall have a new birth of wisdom, and that this school of the men- tally deficient, supplied by the township for the studious, shall not perish 'from the earth. HDUCKSH t'Ducks is a low, heavy-set bird, composed mostly of meat and feathers. His head sets on one end, and he sets on the other. Ducks can't sing much on account of the dampness in the moisture. There ain't no between to his toes, and he carries a toy balloon in his stomach to keep him from sinking. The duck has only two legs and they are set so far back on his running gears that they come pretty near missing his body. Some ducks when they get big is called drakes, and have curls on their tails. Drakes donlt have to set or hatch, but they just loaf around, go swimming and eat. It I was a duck I'd rather he a drake. Ducks don't give milk, they give eggs, but for me give me liberty or give me death." OLD NOKOMIS 1923 HISTORICAL FACTS Millieent says Garfield was shot in the stage.

When God looked on Adam He said to Himself: "Well, l think I can do better if I try again." And He made Eve. God liked live so much better than Adam that there have been more women than men. Boys are a trouble. They wear out everything but soap. If I had my way half the world would be girls and the rest dolls. My papa is so nice that I think he must have been a little girl when be was a little boy. Man was made, and on the seventh day he rested. Woman was then made, and she has never rested since.

With Apologies, Doi' OLD NOKOMIS 1 9 2 3 HIMQLWTTKAMFTEIAfisiitfieveLETTE ' UliAI'TEli I The young man who sat in the window of the eighteenth story of the Colossus building balanced himself neatly on the window ledge and sur- veyed the eddying noon-day throng beneath him. There was an air of elegance a11d self poise about him that bespoke the man ot leisure and re- tinement. Suddenly he heard the niad clang ot' a bell down the street, and with a Sudden motion turned to see a tire engine rushing up the crowded thor- oughtare. A second later a cry of horror arose from the street. In his eagerness the young man had lost his balance and was :falling with lightning speed to the street below. CHAPTER II. The faces of the thousand who saw the frightful leap were pale with terror as the young n1an's body, striking a projecting sign in his flight, bounded far out toward the street. Women wept, and strong men turned their blanched faces aside. lVith a horrible thud the falling figure reached the granite pave mid- way in the street. CHAPTER III But the thousands who rushed forward to see if a spark of life re- mained in the prostrate figure were suddenly held back. The fire engine with maddened steeds and heavy rumbling wheels, was close at hand. In vain the frightened driver tried to check the pert-ipitous motion of his machine. ,w As well might he have stopped the ball at a C2lIlll01l,S mouth. Almost before the crowd could know what had occurred the flying en- gine had reached the prostrate l:01'llIl and passed directly over it. CHAPTER. IV Save for the low sobs ol' some anguished woman and the mul'l'led ex- claniations of horror from the men the crowd was completely hushed. Two of the bravest men in the awed assemblage sprung forward, to- gether with a stout policeman, and stood above the form ot' the young man. The policeman turned away with a sad face and started 'l'or the patrol box. Q But ere he had taken two steps the figure on the pavement straigliteu- ed out, and the young man rose. dusted his clothes oft' lightly with his handkerchief and started to walk away. :'H0ld on," said the Officer, f'you're injured." "I guess not,'i replied the young man as he airily lighted a cigarette. "T played a tackle on the N. T. H.

In the first half Schroeder with perfect inter- ference went around end t'or a touchdown and he also kicked goal. The score stood T-tl at the end of the first half. ln the second half Schroeder made a lucky touchdown on a l'umble and added an additional point by a fake. .-Xltho the game was a good one filled with joy for N. T. H. it was also very sad, for in the last quarter "Syeamore". or Clarence Staples, one of the best men on the squad, wrenched his knee and was forced to lze out the re- mainder of the season. Also we lost the services of our star center, Brown. lle accepted a position which forced him to drop football. The loss of these two men greatly crippled the team, for both were stars at their particular positions. The next game which was to be played at Assump- tion was ea,neelle4'l on are-ount of a heavy rain which made it impossible for the teams to play. Un November -1- we journeyed to Sehi-oeder's childhood home, Tilt. Olive. This team enjoyed unusual success for it had defeated seven teams and was beaten by only two. llowever Nokomis was equal to the occasion and fought like demons against' the superior weight and knowledge of the Mt. Olive aggregation. In the first' halt Nokomis came within a yard of the goal only to have the whistle for the half blow and rob them of their touchdown. Then in the fourth quarter Nokomis opened np her aerial at- taek which brought them to Mt. 0live's 'five yard line. Here we tried one ol' our short passes only to have an end break thru and knock it down. The final score was ISU-tl. In the next game we met the strongest' teain in our football schedule. We knew l'ana would defeat us for they averaged lTtl lbs. to a man. During the first' quarter we hehl them to a ti-T score, Schroeder scoring a touchdown on an intercepted pass. Also in this quarter, quarterbaek Handles made a brilliant run of -ltl yds. but the field was so rough he fell to the ground on their 'five yard line. Also when he fell he in- jured his knee and had to be taken from the game. By this time the superior weight began to take its toll on our men for they were bumped around so much that they were exhausted. Then l"ana entered a t'resl1 team and walked away with Nokomis tit!-ti. Our last game was played at llivernon on Armistice llay. It had rained all day and the field and ball were so slick that it was hard to play a good fast game. Nokomis played some very bad football in this game. Subsequently they were defeated 40-tl. This was our last game of the season because we had so many H1611 injured and out of the game we decided to quit and start Basketball. The Football season of N22 from the financial and material stand- point was a failure, but from the moral standpoint it was a success. All the boys played the game hard and clean. A feeling of better fellowship was established among all the boys which will develop into a lasting friend- ship. It seems fitting to mention t'oaeh Crepin at this time. He did all he could to help N. T. 1'I. S. have a good football team and the degree of success it aceoinplished was due to his untiring efforts. He is a man with very high standards of morality. always urging the boys to form clean habits and morals. A coach like Mr. Crepin is hard to find and il think N. T. ll. S. is indeed fortlmate to have him as a coach and instructor. OLD NOKOMIS 41 LH. 1923 BASKET BALL COACH ClilDP.l.N "Cl.llC.l"' This is the second year Coach Vrepin has been with ns.

THE BASKET BALL SEASGN GF 'ZZ-'23 At the close of football season the coach and men were given a, week's rest. Then candidates for Basket'-ball position were ordered. to report for practice. Twenty two candidates reported for practice and within a week Basket-ball was in full swing ati N. T. H. After three weeks of hard pi-attire the first game was played against Coffeeng altho N. T. 1-l. S. won. the game was very slow. Seven men were used during the game. The score for this game was 12-S. The next game we played against Morrisonville on their court and altiho the referee was against ns N. T. H. S. won 223-17. Fleming made a. total of thirteen points in this game. ln the next game we proved why we should have won the county tournament, for on Der. 20 we beat Fillmore to the tune of 19-15 and N. T. H. S. played poor ball at that. This was our last game before the holidays. During the holidays the boys broke training to some extent, but not enough so that they could not obtain revenge for that football de- feat. N. T. H. S. beat Assumption on Jan. by the score of 20-12. The next game we plaYed the widely heralded Wiitt team. People said lVitt would double the score. But before a crowd of seven hundred and fifty YVitt had a hard time beating N. T. H. S. by a score of 19-1.11-. This game deinonstrated the fact that YVitt's team was not any better than the basketeers of N. T. H. S. The gate receipts for this game were one hund- red and fifty seven dollars, the largest gate receipts of any single game held ill N. T. H. S. gymnasium. The 13th of January proved Mt. 0live's undoing for N. T. H. S. beat them on that date by a sf-orc of 19-12. Tn this game Schroeder hit a lucky stride and made 16 of the 10 points. On Jan. 10, Morrisonville came back for revenge but were foiled. N. T. H. S. beating theln 15-fl. The game was rough and tumble throughout but N. T. H.

The gymnasium and referee were both against ns. The neutral f?l referee did not display the white flag but instead the orange and black of Gillespie High. Then, the gym. had two large beams extending across the playing floor, directly in front OLD NOKOMIS------ 1923 ' ot' the basket, so therefore N. T. lil. Sfs long shots were not effective. Gilles- pie heat us 25-IZ. Our next game was played against Lewiston High. This team is eoaehed by llarold Osborne, t'ormer Illinois 'University track star and 'present holder ot' the Inter-collegiate high jump record. Between halves he gave an exhibition ol' his high jumping clearing the remarkable height' ot six teet two inehes. The Lewiston fellows were all Clean Cut and played a very elean game. N. T. IT. S. was away off form that night and consequently were defeated by the exeellent basket shooting ol' Lwis- ton. The final sc-ore was Ill-I2 in Lewiston's favor. Ailt'0l' this we played our return game with Wilt. This time lVitt was positive ot beating us for I'-lrown was siek and they had the advantage ot' their home floor. The score with Will' was 215-15 in their favor. Here it must? be said that Witt gave us a very square deal this year and very good treatment. lil-own had not suf- tieiently recovered to play the next' two games with us. Consequently with hard lurk thrown in we were defeated at Tayloi-ville. However, noth- ing eould be gathered from the strength ot our team tor the game was slow and very poorly played. The Nt. Olive game at Mt. Olive was a rough house t'rom beffinnine' to end' oniv two fouls were Called durine' the whole game. P1 P! 7 1 35 ta lVe were the only team who had beaten Mt.

The last halt' the teams stood around watching Mt. Olive men trying to hold a wrestling tournament in a Basket ball game. Tile final seore was ,ttl-tl, but the sf-ore ot' this game did not mean a thing tor Nokomis haul beaten them fairly and squarely and Mt. Olive did not. The next week the eounty toln-namenti was held at Hillsboro. An ae- eount of these games will be tound under a separate heading. Our first game atter the tournament was with Taylorville. Buel, our 'fighting little guard was missing out ot' the line-up so Schroeder was shifted from forward bark to running guard. The game was a. fast one and Taylorville was given a real t'ight but 'ltupert llerron, our forward, was not used to playing the whole eon test and after playing a brilliant game fOll' three quar- ters ot' the game we were toreed to use another man. The seore when the l'inal whistle blew was 29-Qtl, in favor ot Taylorville. The last game of the season and the last one ot' high sehool lit'e for Sehroeder. Brown and tfio- ehetti was played against Ramsey. It was a hotly contested game through- out although Nokomis was still minus lluel. Then in the t'ourth quarter Srhroeder was put' out on four personal touls.

THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT ln the District T01ll'1lillll0Ill' March 2. 13, 4, at Shelbyville, X. T. H. S. again drew a heavy schedule. They played Effingham the first game and were det'eated by a score of 38-35. Everybody at the tournament said it was the best game in the whole tonrnainent. N. T. H. S. short pass worked wonderfully and it' our old tournament jinx had not been on us we would have probably gone to the finals. As it was, lflffingliain went to the 'finals and lost to Altamont' by only one point and played with only four regulars while N. T. H. H. 'taeed their regular tive. The 'Effingham started out with lGt't'in1flla1n leadin 1' until the first' quarter, when the seore stood l5-5 in 1- L fa ' mt' 'l'It't'i1w'l1 nn Then Y T ll S bee'an to fret into torni, clilnbinff ui 25 .voif, ,.,a. i. . ,,, ,., until at the half the score was 'lti-lit. In the third quarter the game was in fnll swing, Nokoniis using their short pass to wonderful advantage, lifting- hain playing the eorners with excellent basket shooting. The score at the quarter stood 25-22 in 'favor ol' N. T. 'HQ S. Then Nokoniis kept on seoring till five minutes before the game ended. She had a five point lead only to be robbed of it by an lCt't'inglnnn center getting a streak of lnek, followed hy two freak baskets by the forwards. This game however, was not disap- pointing: to N. T. H. S. enthusiasts for they held that N. T. H. S. came within tive points ot' winning the distriet tourney. However, Nokonlis team this year was as fast' as any iealn in the distriet, but were short on good basket shooters. Fleming, Schroeder and Brown were fair, but it would have meant many more vietories if they would have looped thein in a little better. lirown reeeived honorable mention at the District. Cioehetti made first all star eounty tealn. and Sc-liroeder nlade second all star eounty. The first all star County this year was picked by the referees while the newspapers pieked the second. 5 40 S dwg' with? 1.32, - . gefgfgi, -::-15?
