In this eventful school year of ,23-'24 have
occurred many things differing' from our standard
methods, l'rominent among these stands the new
management of our year book. In previous times
the Annual has been a burden and an anxiety to
every Senior. At present, lioxvever. as! in many
modern, progressive schools, this responsibility is
being shouldered by the student body and facul-
ty. The Student Council, another institution of
the new regime, chose some of the Board of Iidi-
tors, and the classes and associations selected the

impression. It is our hest. No staff can do more.

Dear Betty: '
I have just returned to good old America. England is all right but
there is too much fog in the city streets during the winter months. It is
more interesting to sing before American audiences in one's home land than
before a sprinkling of Americans, English, Russians, French, etc., in a
foreign ball-room. Little did I know when we were in the N. T. I-I. S.
choruses building air castles of becoming prima donnas. that I would ever
tour this country and abroad singing.
I had been booked to appear before only English audiences, but I could
not let the temptation slip to fly to Paris and see that gay city. I had
heard that Lottie Jones was in Paris and I had some trouble finding her.
Finally the wife of the American ambassador sent word that she had found
a Beauty Shop in Paris, where the proprietor, the Madamoiselle Lottie.
could speak English and she highly recommended the establishment to me.
I dropped into the shop the following day and there was our old Lottie. She
was quite light hearted and very prosperous. just a hint. Betty, Lottie
says that curls are to be the advance style and she herself is attempting to
grow her old curls back.
One evening in a hotel lobby I, was glancing over the advanced fash-
ions. I scarcely believed my eyes when I saw the name of the designer of
the women's fashions to be Charles Rhodes. I can just see how your eyes
are fairly popping. Everybody urged me to try Monsieur Charles if I were
in need of new frocks. I am wearing one of his creations at my engage-
ment tomorrow night, and it is a beauty. I had to laugh to myself all the
time he was explaining the advantages of hoop skirts and carrying kittens,
for this persuasive artist was so remote from our old idea of "Floppie."
VVhile I was in Manchester, England, my carriage couldn't get the
right-of-way near an old coffee-house. I caught a glimpse of a woman
wildly gesticulating and talking imploringly to an immense crowd. Her
voice sounded familiar, but I did not identify her until I picked up the
Manchester Times the following day, and read that an American, Jennie
jachino, had delivered a stirring address on doing away with the House of
Lords so that the women might enter the Upper I-Iouse. She is said to be
touring England and drawing large crowds.
The boat back to America sighted the immense trans-Atlantic bridge
and I had quite an exalted feeling every time I viewed it to think that
Kenneth Buel had been the architect to draw up its plans. At mid-ocean we
stopped along side the bridge and here came Ethel Turk who was walk-
ing from New York to Liverpool. She reported that as yet she hadn't been
sea-sick and would cable when she landed. The cable came at noon today
announcing her safe arrival.
Be sure to order an "Qld Nokoinisn this year because I'Ve just run

publication. She has asked me to drop into her studio and I'm planning to do
so real soon. I can scarcely wait to hear how she is having ti1ne to draw
cartoons for the New York Times, covers for the Literary Digest and ever
so many other things. Students back in N. T. H. S. ought to enjoy the
Literary Digest now that they know that their Alumna is on the magazine
All of the old girls are so terribly busy now and still we dearly love
to keep in touch with each other. XVhy not write Round Robin letters? It
would be a time saver.
I am traveling west in june and I may be able to drop in a few hours at
Nokomis. It seems ages since I was there. .
OLD N OKOMIS
Dear May: March 20, 1934
The most wonderful suggestion has come to me in my last letter from
Velma, that we write Round Robin letters. Velma may think that she leads
a busy life now that she is a famous singer, but poor "little me" is so ex-
ceedingly busy looking after my four responsibilities-a husband and the
three four-year-old sons. I don't believe that I will ever forgive jack
for keeping me at home so that I can't deliver my address on women's
rights to the women at Coalton and VVenonah.
Velma Elvers is in VVashington as secretary to the President. Oh, why
didn't I take a business course, too, so that I could see some of the world
instead of being tied down at home with three children. My only consol-
ation is that I don't have to be a secretary to a Republican president.
How I long for some Paris frocks, but the best I can do is to go to WVitt
and have Viola johnson sew up a gown for me. Everybody goes to Viola.
but if I had my way I would go to New York to shop.
There now, Tommy upset my ink bottle. He is the naughtiest boy.
What he doesn't think of, then Dickie or I-larry will, They drive me dis-
tracted and still jack just thinks that it is all right, Sometimes I just want
to elope. I can't keep a maid because the boys run a maid crazy in one day's
time, and again I have to do all my work. They are wild to get hold of
my new Hunter. By the way if Lydia hadn't invented that combined
sweeper and duster I don't know how I would ever keep house. I have to
keep it under lock and key and keep it away from the boys.
Town is full of the talk of the achievement of Leonard Morgan. I-Ie
has just completed a new state dance hall at Springfield and laid more bricks
per day than any other Workman did in a similar building constructed at
the same time by a private concern. He ought to try out for honors as a
It is the funniest thing to go down Main street and see the brilliant
signs put up by the two opposing candy shops. Gertrude Satterlee and
Albert Viola are terrible rivals. Their stores are opposite each other and
they are jealous if one gets one more customers than the other. It is a
wonder that they don't go bankrupt, for they outbid each other in special-
ties to catch trade. Wlieii the boys go shopping with me Tommy sets
up a howl to go to the Greek's as soon as we come to town, and Dickie to
Satterlee's, and Harry to neither place, and I just can't do anything when
they are along.
Williain McCaslin came into town yesterday. He is very fat and still
makes eyes. and oh girls, he wears slashed trousers, no collar, a red ban-
dana around his neck, a barber-pole shirt, and a green plug hat. He went
out to N. T. I-I. S. today and can't you just hear those infants reeling with
laughter? Is that the specie of farmer they grow out in Kansas?
No doubt you are leading a life of ease down there in Florida and I
only wish that I were any place but here in dead Nokomis.
March 30, l934
NVhy didn't some of us think of the new idea of letter-writing long ago?
l might as well be in the jungles and put up with their inconveniences as
to be down here in Florida near this swampy place and away from civiliza-
tion. Nobody knows how l welcome those letters from the outside world.
Evidently the world thinks that Florida has the perpetual "Fountain of
Youth," but l've failed to find it yet.
Alfred is constantly writing new poetry and he is truly in his ele-
ment for we are living close to nature. Not even a flivver for Alfred. l'm
in constant dread that we will be landed in the ditch by some speedist. Our
old horse, Molly, is nearly blind and she takes just one leap for the ditch
when a "threshing machine" looms up and l have to laugh to see Alfred
suddenly wake up and begin to think about his precious poetry notes.
Doesn't that sound like a typical ,-'Xlfred Green?
l've been trying to persuade Alfred to send for Harold Kettelkamp to
come down from Mobile, Alabama. It is reported that people have asked
"Cotton" why he doesn't marry, and he replies that he has no use for a wife
since everything in his home is run by electricity, and if he had a wife
he would never know where she was. tlixcept, not at home.j l'm in hopes
that "Cotton" will be able to persuade Alfred to introduce some of those
electrical labor saving devices into our home if Alfred is going to want
to reside here for fifty Years.
Alfred took Julius Caesar up to St. Augustine last month to a circus.
Julius Caesar came home so greatly excited over the fact that his father
knew a midget in the circus. His father states that it was Anton Gerigk.
Some of my friends in Miami write that the tourists are going wild
over a classical toe-dancer, and since l hear that she is lllildred Ramsey.
I am threatening to escape from here and join the visitors at Miami and
admire our old classmate. too.
Peggy has had an intermittent toothache all spring and l can't prevail
upon her father to let me take her up to Tallahassee to see the dentist, Dr.
james Griffin. Alfred once went over to visit "Jimmie" and "Jimmie"
used some hypnotic powers over him, and Alfred never did know when he
lost his tooth. v
Orie Barnstable writes that she may come down to see us in june, pro-
vided that llenry Ford gives her leave. She is making some chemical ex-
periments in fertilizers at llluscle Shoals for Henry Ford. She likes her
work but some of her chemical terms are like Greek to me.
Now'don't pity me too much, for l'm exceedingly proud of my poet
husband and he sends off his third volume of verse this week.

Since the terrible fire that wiped out part of one suburb, I never know
when I'n1 to be called on to extra duty to care for some fire victim, who has
only been dug from the debris and has slight chance for recovery. If it had
not been for the negligence of the fire chief, hloseph Gourlay, probably the
fire would not have wrought such vast destruction. Evidently Ioe received
some of his training in the old Nokomis fire department' I haven't been
out of this hospital for ages, I am constantly being called to quiet some
afflicted child who is crying for "Mother" and probably that mother lost
her life in trying to save her children.
I want to go to Chicago so badly to see the newest movie star, Howard
Pendleton, who, being the Shiek of Movie-land, is taking the part of the
Deserted Lover in the recent play, "Tears of Love." The "come-hither"
look in his eyes certainly causes many a young girl's heart to flutter. l
don't suppose that you see any of the movie magazines, but the latest ones
are full of the comments about Movie Director at Hollywood, namely Er-
nest Reisner. All of the movie stars fall in love with him at first sight
and they make every year a leap yearg although he is at home with them,
he will not listen to their entreaties. He is evidently all business, but still I
am wondering how he has ever overcome his bashfulness enough to get out
before a crowd of actors and direct them into a successful movie. lt's bc-

Clarence Staples is stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Training Camp.

Vlfhenever I do get an entire day off I must run down to the poor farm and

Your letters from America are putting renewed effort into me, so that
I can add something accomplished to the class role of 1924 and for N. T. H.
S. I expect always to remain in the missionary field. This is an elementary
school and there are no others for a hundred miles. Some Americans think
that foreigners would be afraid of the natives here in the interior, but we
try to prove ourselves friends to the natives and they never cause us any
It is indeed wonderful that some of the American lyceum companies
are sending out entertainers abroad. Mary Sperry is to appear in some mus-
ical programs in British South Africa. Since she will be in the dark conti-

natives a rare musical treat. VVe need music here so badly.

passports for you. He is practising law in NVashington, D. C. He saw the

Poor Luella Reincke is broken-hearted over her ill-fated love affair.
Her letters are pitiful. If ever anybody was dead in love, Luella was, and

marry him at any minute. She ought to be thankful that she has 'escaped
such a worthless piece of humanity. She is teaching at her old home school.
I would think it better policy for her to get entirely away from Nokomis and
make new friends and thus forget that man.

children in Memphis, Tennessee. That is a wonderful work. XIVC can't un-

to them what was given to her in N. T. Trl. S.
It is strange that none of the boys stayed in Nokomis and became af-

Now with fond recollections we look o'er the past,
O'er the days that so soon have sped on,
And we think of how some seemed so quickly to go,
And how slowly some went one by one.
VVe have ne'er yet regretted the days we have spent
In the gaining of knowledge and friends-,
And we feign would continue in these learned halls,
But our path now some other way wends.
So we think that the days, Alina Mater dear school,
That were spent in thy teaching and care. V
Are the best of the days that our life has e'er seen,
Though we look o'er the past ev'rywhere.
In return for the benefits we have received,
From the school we attended so long, '
Let us give to the world the best efforts we have,
And its blessings will back to us throng.-A. G.

Wie quickly overcame our so-called greenness and grasped on to the
ways of the wise. The following officers were elected: George E. Moel-
ler, presidentg Lucy Studnick, vice presidentg and lirna Henkel, secretary
After a year of fun and hard knocks. we stepped in to fill the place left
vacant by last year's Sophomores. A few of our seventy-seven had left us
but not enough to prevent us from going on in our fight for success. As
Sophoinores we gained wide reputation of being the brighest class that had
ever before landed in the seats of the preceding classes.
XYe covered ourselves with glory that year and so far this year have
done nothing but duplicate this act. The members of today are a peppy
bunch and are not afraid to work for their class. ln athletics as well as
in everything else we surpass all others.
As Seniors next year we will establish a record that will be a wonder to
ever one. -B f George Frederick.

If someone. whose idle thoughts were thus inclined, had commented
upon the number ol those gathering through the portals of dear old N. T.
ll. their youth. their vigor, their strength. finally upon their apparent
possibilities. be probably would have given some time toward what these
young' people might acomplish, banded together in their different courses of
work, study, and recreation. 'Tis a well-known and accepted fact, l be-
lieve. that whatever success was attained by the basketball team, represent-
ing our school this year, was due greatly to its teamwork. This same
cooperation, if put to service in an organization of students interested in a
special line of research work. will result in rather surprising success for the

THE HIGH SCHOOL CHORUS
Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the high
school chorus this year is to be found in the quality rather
than in the number of the voices. The chorus was organ-
ized at the beginning of the year with thirty-seven voices.
A few were compelled to drop out on account oi' con-
flicts with other elasses. Different types of works were
studied such as: classical, semi-classical. and secular.
These were spiced with a little popular, now and then.
The chorus is now preparing for an operetta. "The
VVitch of Fairy Dell." The words of this operetta were writ-
ten hy Frances V. Hubbard and the music was written
by Frederick VV. Mills.
This organization is called on quite often to render
musical selections for various occasions.

Organization of the N. T. H. S. Science Club
A Science Club of the Nokomis Township .High School was organized
at the beginning of the school year, at the suggestion of Mr. Rademacher,
with an enrollment of eighty-three members. The purpose of this club
is to create and arouse a greater interest among the student body in science.
The club holds its regular meetings on the last Tuesday of each month.
The club intends to take at least one outing every spring to study science
directly from nature.
The science club has already held several beneficial meetings this year
and previous to Arbor and Bird Day it instilled an interest into the stu-
dents to build bird houses and to encourage the birds to make our city
their headquarters, and on Arbor and Bird Day, the club had charge of the
After this Annual goes to print, the club will hold a science exhi-
bition in the school. and all the residents of our favored city will be invited
to attend it. In this exhibition many manufacturing concerns will be repre-
sented with exhibitions of their raw and finished products. The science
classes will also be represented by students demonstrating some of the var-
ious departments in the exhibits. Ry science programs and exhibits of
this sort the club hopes to become beneficial to the students and to the
rest of the citizens of Nolcomis.
The following subjects are represented in the club: agriculture, bot-
any, chemistry, commercial geography, domestic science. general science.
physics, zoology, physiology, and physiography.
The officers for the first term were' Peter Caldwell. presidentg Har-
old Kettelkamp. vice presidentg Florence Miller, secretary and treasurerg

A school may have a very successful year in athletics, or it may have
a great variety of flourishing activities, but these are merely faculties for
advancing the pleasure of the students in their school work. However,
this is not the first object of the school. The object is to educate the stu-
dents not only that they may in after life have good positions or such, but
also that they may be cultured and refined. The culture and refinement
which are so necessary in a real enjoyment of life, are fostered by the en-
joyment of writing and speaking. Therefore we submit the following,
trusting that it will malce a favorable impression upon other schools and
colleges and also foment an enjoyment of reading' and writing of good liter-
ature aniong students. -"Dink."
jimmy was a twelve year old boy of the slums. Though freckle-faced
he was a handsome lad with wistful, blue eyes and brown, curly hair. Now,
his cheeks, tinted by the fierce winter wind, were rosy, and as he trudged
along, trying in vain to protect himself from the bitter cold, he was a pitiful
llis father had died when jimmy was nine years old, and his mother,
driven by poverty, had moved to the poorest section of the city. In her
possession was a valuable violin, and though she had waged a constant
struggle to make ends meet, she had carefully guarded that one treasure, the
only legacy of her son, and jimmy, who had been taught several years by
his father, was now a splendid little violinist. l-le had a passionate love
for music and in his playing showed a depth of feeling that was astonishing
in one so young.
Noticing the talent he displayed, l'eppo, a fruit peddler who had
adopted the orphaned boy. had taken special care of him and his beloved
violin. .Left alone in the world. jimmy bestowed all the affection of his
heart on his one friend, Pcppo, and confided to him his cares and troubles.
The two were close pals and companions, and Peppo did his best to secure
by his scanty earnings the nccessaries of life for his youthful protege. He
had an urgent desire to have the boy educated. especially in music, but his
limited means hindered him. And though without a teacher. Jimmy, hoping
that some day he would be a great violinist. practiced diligently.
lt was a very cold evening in januaryg out of the nowhere snow was
falling thick and fast and settling in drifts about the streets. Everything
was enveloped in a ghostly shroud, and the effect on the otherwise ugly tene-
ment houses was beautiful. The streets were wholly deserted except for
a few hurrying pedestrians, who. with visions of a bright fire and protec-
tion from the blinding snow, were hurrying homeward.
With a similar destination in view, jimmy, half frozen, was making
his way with difficulty through the snow heaps piled high in his path.
Anxious to get home he was taking a short-cut through an alley, when
his attention was attracted by the sound of muffled voices. lnstinctively
he drew back into the shadows, for a short distance ahead he had perceived
vaguely the forms of two men.
"Red, did you get the tools?" the first voice asked.
"Yes. But when is this stunt to be pulled off?"
"Tomorrow night. Did you find out where the jewels are?"
"Yes Old man Sanders keeps them in a safe on the second floor.
VVon't he be surprised when he discovers that his bonds and precious jewels
are gone? l-Ia! Hal I'cl like to see his face then. But he won't be able to
discover his loss if he interferes with our work while we're there, for I'll
make short work of him."
Sanders! 'Timmy started. He was the man who had rescued hi1n the
previous day from the red-headed bully. And these men were planning
to rob, and even kill him!
'WVell, be there at eleven thirty, and bring the tools with you. Be cau-
tious. Remember a great deal depends on our success."
Vtfithout further conversation the two conspirators parted, and after look-
ing carefully around, Jimmy emerged from his hiding place and shivering, ran
That night, as he lay on his hard bed, he resolved to warn Mr. Sanders
and repay him for his kindness. Though a poor boy living in that part of the
city which is the abode of the criminal and other degenerate people, jiinmy
was not like most of his neighbors. He had been taught honesty and vir-
tue by his mother, and he still harbored in his heart those ideals which had
been instilled into it. So. as he drifted into dreainland, he had a vague plan
of preventing the evil designs of the men whose conspiracy he had over-
The next morning as he partook of a frugal breakfast, he told Peppo
of his intention and gained the hearty approval of the honest peddler. After
running erands and distributing papers as usual. the young newsboy set
out for the home of the wealthy Mr. Sanders. Arrived there. he mounted
the steps and rang the bell, wondering how he would be received. Presently
the door was opened by a grave looking, immaculately-dressed individual,
who eyed the shabbily attired boy rather doubtfully.
'7XVhat do you want ?" he at length asked with a supercilious air.
"A-are you Mr. Sanders?"
The man laughed, "No. l'm not Mr. Sanders. but what do you want?"
".l'd like to see him, sir." ,Iimmy had recovered from his momentary
confusion, and now spoke firmly.

impatient, hut what he had to tell was very valuable to Mr. Sanders, and
he must not he so easily deterred from his purpose.
The man frowned.
"Hut l must see him. l have something very important to tell him."
"Hoy, you are a nuisaneef'
"l'm sorry. sir. llowever, l'm sure that if Mr. Sanders sees me, he
will not regret it."

'l'he hutler disappeared down a spacious corridor and in a few moments

jimmy oheyed and was ushered into the presence of a tall, middle-aged
man of commanding appearance. llis hair was tinged with white and on his
smoothly shaved face was an expressive frown. As the hoy entered, how-
ever, it lightened up with a smile and he addressed the youngster cheerily.

-Timmy departed feeling like a millionaire, and the next morning at the
appointed time was at the home of Mr. Sanders.
"jimmy, your warning was most opportune. for the rohhers were cap-
tured last night as they attempted the theft." The millionaire smiled.
"Now, in what way can 1 reward you?'!
"1 don't want any reward, sir."
"But l'm determined that you shall get one.

The Nearest I Have Ever Come to Death
'llhe nearest I have ever come to death is now, in my first month of Eng-
lish IV and llistory. I have always attended schools where it was consider-
ed a serious and difficult matter to write one theme a week, but to learn a
poem and learn it well was a colossal accomplishment. In History, five or
six pages a day was "going some" Now these schools were schools of from
one thousand to fifteen hundred students and were considered A-1 in effi-
At present in my third year l attend a good school but with only two
hundred students. VVhen l started in this school, I thought that, being a
small one, it would be "pie," but that was where I was entirely mistaken.
I was mistaken in all subjects, but especially in English and History. The
first two or three days were, l had predicted. "pie." However this was
because the books had not come. By this time, I was sure this smaller
school would he easy. llut after we obtained our books I was soon made
aware of my misapprehension. The first week or so in English we had a
theme and an oral composition. I was somewhat dazed at these assignments.
But when we were also given a poem to learn l became a little weak.
VVhen in I-Iistory, we took nine pages a day, a certain dizziness came over
me. Fearing a breakdown, I pled for mercy, and was told by my history
teacher to obtain shorter English assignments,-such is life. I consoled
myself with the thought that the first school month like March coming in
like a lion would go out like a lamb. Vtfith this thought my strength part-
ly returned. But with the coming of this week I have had a mental break-
down, for we are having another theme and also another poem in Englishg
while in History we are averaging ten pages a day. I am now nearer to
death than l have ever been heforeg and if they don't "ease up" I will sure-
ly die a martyr to the cause. -Dink.
lt has been said in the praise of some men, that they could talk whole
hours together upon anythingg hut it must be owned to the honor of the
other sex that there are many among them who can talk whole hours to-
gether upon nothing.
NVCYC women permitted to plead in the courts, I am convinced they
would carry the eloquence of the bar to greater heights than it has yet
attained. and I think the universities would do well to consider whether
they should not fill the rhetoric chairs with female orators.
Most women are censorious. X'Vith what copiousness of expression
will they enlarge upon every little slip in behavoir of others! Xafith how
many different circumstances and twisting of facts will they tell over the
same story! This last type is the so called gossip.

"Dick" was one of our aces in making ringers from most any place
on the floor. llis specialty was angling shots of medium length which he
rarely missed. lle will be with us again next year to show his loyalty to
N. T. ll. S. X'VClC0lllC old "Dicky Hoy."
DIOIIQN KIRKL.-NND, ili'o'rward
"Kirk" held down the forward position and played an efficient game.
lle was a good basket shooter and fast as lightning. Although he was the
smallest member on the squad, he made up for it in speed and ringers. We
are glad that "Kirk" will be back next year to show his basket skill for the
"Red and Black." He grabbed a berth with the second all-stars.
DONALD l,'A'U'SClrlliRT, Guard
Donald surprised us all. He surely came out of the "kinks.', Although
he sat on the bench the greater part of the time he made up for it when
he did play and was always aching to get into the game. Donald will be
with us next year and will show us his skill for old N. 'l'. ll. S. He also was
enrolled with the second all-stars.
:XLl3lLRfIf VIOLA, Center
L'Greek" was an all around "sub" on the floor. Ile played either guard
or center with all he had to give, and filled his position well. Albert will
be back again next year ready for battle at the sound of the whistle.
HO VVf'XlilJ lllflt1liM.'XN, Forward
"Froggy" was also a bench man, but eager to get into the scrap and do
his bit. Although he couldn't demonstrate his ability to play very often. he
did his bit when he got the chance. XYatch Howard next year.
Llilil JY R,-'X M S IEY, Forward
Leroy played real well when he was needed, and his periseopie stature
helped him a lot. lfle determined to "star" next year and we hope he
will live up to his ambitions.
OLIN Kljfl'fl'lELKAlNlP, Gurad
"Kettel" got into the combat several times, and was always ready to do
his bit. lfle is growing like a weed, and next year will be back to do his bit

Irving came here for our first school game of the season and it
was a pretty good one, too. They made us hump during the whole game.
At the end of the third quarter the score stood 7 to 19 in our favor but they
crawled up on us and the game ended with N. T. H. S. victorious by 8 points.
The score was 13 to Zlg Irving made 6 points in the last quarter to our 2.
Coffeen came over next to try her luck. but she must have left her luck
at home for we tampecl her by 21 points: 8-29. XVe've certainly put on
more speed, for Uofleen had some huskies and they were no slouehes either,
but they just naturally eouldn't penetrate our defense. NVe wonder why?
Raymond was next in line but she failed, although the game was over
there and the lights poor and the back boards punk. lt was an example of
brains against musele. VW' made a flying start and made S points in the
first quarter to their none. From there on. the game was tight but we
kept the lead throughout and finally the whistle blew and the score books
said we had won by five points: l-1 to 19.
XVitt was our next victim. They came over to give us the game of our
lives but we were disappointed. They just didn't seem able to find the
hole in our defense so they didn't get close enough to the basket to make
many points. VVe walked on them by a 37-16 score.
Some may think N. T. H. 5. played against hard luck With Morrison-
ville, others may think they played against providence, but
our boys think that they played against giants. lt was a good scrap from
beginning to end and the Red and Black gave the best they had. But be-
fore the team woke up to the fact that they had to give all they had, Morri-
sonville had the lead and it was too late to put up the fight our boys did
in the last half. The last half both teams were held to a tie, but the first
half gave them the game. They won by four points, 21-17. 1'Ve've one
chance in 53 to make it up so let's do it.
Our old rivals, llillsboro, came down here again but went home with
no doubt in their minds. The Red and lllaek let them have it. the best they
had. They made one field basket and six free throws to our five fielders and
four free tosses. After a good scrap they gave the game to N. T. H. S.
because the Red and lilaek made six more points than they did.
Turn about is fair play, so N. T. H. S. went to VVitt to give them the
game of their lives. Hut we don't think they were as disappointed as the
boys were when they played here. Both teams gave the best they had.
but the Red and 'Hlaek did them about eleven better, for again the Crimson
lVarriors came out on top by a score of 19-S. It was a fast clean game out-
side of one murderous attempt upon a post by one of the Xvarriorsg but no
foul was called as a resultg better luck next time. Next game is with Tay-
lorville. Ought to be a "rip snorterf'
OLD N OKOMIS
lt was a "rip snorterf' Taylorville landed in the afternoon and left the
same night, but a bit wiser at that. She found out Nokomis was nothing
to sneeze about. After a whirl for thirty-two minutes at the game, she found
out she was not quite good enough to beat the Red and Black on the home
floor at least. because she was on the tail end of a 16-11 score. but confident
of a fifteen point victory there, to even things. That remains to be seen.
X'Ve "done" it! What? Tamped Hillsboro. there. ,lt was a battle
royal and exciting until the end. The Red and Black led from the first
and held the lead until the last quarter when the score was tied twice. 15-15
and two minutes to play and then "we did it" and returned home with the
entitled meat and 17-15 score.
Fillmore took county championship last year and a real game was ex-
pected and realized. They were a clean, lively bunch of boys and the Red
and lilack received a real workout. At the half it looked as if it might be
anyones game, but in the last half, after a change of jerseys, the Crimson
XVarriors showed their true mettle and won by a final score of 31-10.
W'ell, Taylorville didn't do it for the score board said six points and
four of them lucky ones at that. They had a two point lead on free throws
and only a few minutes to play when they started the usual Taylorville
stall. The Red and Black pushed them and forced a guard to shoot, and
'Abe blamed" if he didn't sink two of them. "Aint" that luck? lfinal score
Tough luck. Morrisonvilleg too much mudg we eouldn't get there.

The District Tournament didn't hanker for the Crimson and Black
company so they rid themselves of us. in the first game, but not until a hard
fight was put up. The Crimson NVarriors were not noted for their size
and the Shelby boys were no midgets, by any means. As the saying goes,
"They walked on the boys, but not badly." One thing is certain, however-
the game didn't lack excitement for any time, even up till the last two min-
utes. Final score 14 to 1G. "Tip,"
The Crimson and Black knights of the N. T. lfl. S. court are ready foi
the tournament. They have given all they possessed during the season to
bring honor and renown to the N. T. H. S. and are now ready to crown the
They were disappointed at the first clash. lrlillsboro wasn't the vic-
tim. The little town of Donnellson met the Crimson XVarriors and met
their downfall also by a score of 36 to 14.
lfushing cars out of mud may be all right but it doesn't mix with bas-
ketball. just a week after the Donnellson clash, NVitt was chosen to face
the Red and .Black and they faced defeat, like men, after a hard battle.
The final score was ll to 9.
Being in better condition the Red knights were more ready to match
wits and skill with the purple of Farmersville, They had the stuff but were
not equal to the Red and Black and after a speedy game met their "VVater-
loo" and were content to play Litchfield for third place. Final score 28 to 13.
Ready for the fight and the prize, a shield, with Hillsboro as our oppo-
nent. Vtfeights: Hillsboro. 160: Nokomis, l30.
At 8:30 the fight began and lasted till 9:30, and the shield was any-
body's shield until the gun cracked. Hillsboro held the lead throughout
after gaining it, although the .Red and Blacks chances were many, she did
not seem able to make the most of her opportunities. Then the gun said
the game was over and the score was in Hillsboro's favor: 14 to 8.

Nokomis did not do much in track the last year or two. Only a few men
would come out and train. so interest in track was very low. Since last year,
medals are being given to those who win their events and this has helped
to stimulate interest in track. Now when a contestant is successful in get-
ting "a first" he has something to show for it.
There are no out-standing track "stars" in the county this year and
that has helped to awaken interest in track, also.
Nokomis will make a decided effort to have a large and good track team
this year to represent her at the county seat. There are some men in
school, who, with proper training, should make good track or field men.
New equipment has been secured and training is already under way. Be-
sides engaging in the county meet, Nokomis will probably take a part in
a dual or triangular meet. If some good men are developed. they will
probably have a chance to participate in a larger meet.

GIRLS' BASKET BALL
About eighteen girls have been partaking in basket ball sport this
year. There are a good many more in the picture but because of work etc.,
they were often not out to practice.
They played two preliminary games this year: one before a boys' game
with Fillmore, in which the 'Indians defeated the l.'iratesg the other was
played before the game with Raymond. in which the lndians were defeated.
The Freshies played the South School twice, defeating and being defeated.
Thus ends the year of the girls' basketball. but they hope next year to
make a bigger and better one. although they have surpassed last year's
record now. They are also planning on a volley ball team for this spring.

CLASS OF 1920
Of the seventeen distinguished members of the class of '20, two are
helping provide the hungry generation with food. Two are engaged in the
business world, one a stenographer and the other a secretary. One is an ef-
ficient clerk in a leading drug store of this city. Three others have gone on
to increase their mental capacity. one of these three has already made a mark
for himself in the world of art. Four have helped to establish American
homes. Three have gone to-we are not sure where-but the last time
we heard of them they were holding responsible positions, in fact one was

OLD NOKOMIS 'R
CLASS OF 1922
One sunny afternoon l sat by the bank of a little stream dreaming and
lazily watching the drifting of a few clouds overhead. .Nearby stood an
old oak tree and as l sat looking out, a sudden breeze sent several leaves
fluttering past my feet. These leaves had drifted out of the tall grass be-
neath the tree and were now fluttering down ,the bank of the stream. Oft-
times they came together, then parted and some drifted on ,while ohers
strayed. I watched them for a while and then my thoughts wandered to
the high school which I had left two years before. 4 i
I thought of the class of '22 which had gone from that school and today
was scattered afar. Like the leaves of the oak, now drifted through the
forest, they had spread. I pictured them here and there- .meeting by chance
like the leaves. then drifting apart again. There were leaves which had
fallen in the grass that would remain there foreverg how like those of us
who had found their place at home and had contentedly taken up their task.
Others were still drifting on seeking their place in the depths of the 'forest
I paused a moment as l thought that many would still drift on but l
wondered where they were now and what they were doing. At home I. saw
some in different kinds of business, some teaching and others busy with
the work of the home. 1'l.way. l knew several were in schools carrying
on their work begun in the T. H. S. Some had been honored in the de-
velopment of their talents in music and others held positions of trust in the
government. A few had chosen the life of the farm and were living in close
touch with nature. Uthers were somewhere. I know not where, carrying out
their plans of life. They were 'far apart, yet the world acted as a forest home
did to the leaves and gave them but one home to love.
l wandered on dreaming of those days in the N. T. ll. S. A breeze
carried new leaves by me, but l saw them not, my mind was with those dear
classmates who were Somewhere in the forest home of life.

CLASS OF 1923
.Ns the time of commencement draws near again. l look back a year and
think of the time when the class of '23 were looking forward eagerly yet re-
luctantly for the time to come when they should occupy the seats of honor
on the "stage" in T. H. S. auditorium. And as l think of this I wonder
what has become of those thirty-one boys and girls who graduated that
Wlhilc l am thus wondering, l notice a copy of the Free I ress Progress
lying on a table nearby. l picked it up and glanced through it rather careless-
ly. Hut there I see where five of our class members have been home from
college for a few days' vacation between semesters. .ln the same column
there is a note saying that Mrs. V- has been visiting here. I remember
that Mrs. V- sat three seats ahead of me in the study hall. Farther on l
see an announcement for teachers institute to be held this month. That
reminds me that five other members are teachers trying to pass
on to others some of the knowledge gleaned from the well worn tekthooks
studied during that four year's sojourn in N. T. H. S. My musings are in-
terrupted by a step on the front porch. l supposeiit is the postman and
rush eagerly out to see if there can be a letter for me. l find one postmarked
Chicago. I open it and pursue its contents. It is from one of our class-
mates and in it she mentions two others who are also in Chicago and inquires
for four more who li remember are in flietroit. l think how the class has
scattered. Hut as .I sit by the window and watch the people hurrying by
l ani reminded of the fact that all have not left. but that many have remained
in Nokomis, some at home. and others are engaged in workahout the town.
Thus my puzzle is solved and l have located the class of '23 and find that
they are all doing well, which is probably due to the knowledge and inspira-
tion which was their heritage from N. T. ll. S.

ln submitting this edition of "Old Nokoinisf' we have
painstakingly endeavored to make it superior to those preced-
ing, and an example to those of the future. In it lies an
infinite amount of work by the board of editors,--whose only
praise and recoinpence is the knowledge of duty well done.
We have sacrilieed studies, recreation, sleep, and peace of
mind, in order to put out "Old Nokoinisu on time, and to
make it worthy of its name.
lX7e wish to gratefully and publicly acknowledge the
artistic work of Miss Lucy Studnick, who modestly omitted
her name from every drawing.
Xlihen you have read this you probably will have had
time for retleetion upon our activities and have decided
either that the book is "fair," or that the editor should leave
our most esteemed little city with a rather hasty Hight,
promulgated by all the outraged citizens.
'We are unable to solicit your individual opinions. but
we trust this little elifusion will seem appropriate.

tJXpologies to Carrie Jacobs Bond,

And you sit with it and your thought,
.Inst what do you think of that ignorant crook
XVho gathered this stutif so poorly wrought?

ln colors that will never fade:
And you'll lind, if you like this perfect book,
The soul of the editor your friend you've made.
