CATHERINE PINI ,,. MISS YACKLE .,.. MR. PRIDDLE OUR STUDENT A FUNDAMENTAL GUIDE TO REAL EXPRESSIONS WHICH ARE PERTINENT ACTIVITIES A way Tor The sTudenTs To leT OTT sTeam raTher Than in an argumenT or TisT-TighT. These are meThods aT passing or wasTing Time by some new Torrn oT devilmenT or raTher "TomToolery." These aCTiviTies give a person a chance To show OTT her new dress, shoes, or anyThing she wishes To show so ThaT she will be envied. I grudgingly haTe To admiT iT buT I suppose There really are some good ends gained such as some- Thing which will be pracTical, and beneTiT The sTudenT in his or her laTer liTe. ATHLETICS A Torm OT ancienT bruTaliTy in which The sTudenTs play The leading roles insTead OT lions or some oTher wild animal. They have diTTerenT Torms which They call games, such as TooTball, in which The Two-legged apes pursue all over a Tield The skin OTT an old dead hog. When They do Tinally capTure The covering aTT The piece OT pork, They Then kick or Throw iT away. AnoTher Torm aT game is called baskeTbalI in which all aT The parTicipanTs dash madly Trom one end OT The Tloor To The oTher, bouncing a spherical hump oT leaTher on The Tloor. When They reach The end OT The Tloor They Throw The "punkin" Through someThing which looks like The rim Trom a car wheel. These aThleTics are in realiTy a greaT Thing Tor The sTudenTs, Teaching Them True sporTsmanship and co- operaTior1 wiTh oThers. AThleTics also keep Their bodies physically TiT. FACULTY The permanenT TixTures behind The big desks in all rooms who seem never To run ouT oT "gab" and lessons and mainly "exams." They are Those bundles aT humaniTy who know everyThing Trom A To Z and who are always ready and willing To share Their vasT knowledge wiTh us, and To help us over our seemingly high mounTains on The road OT life, which are in realiTy small anT hills. Page I0 CTI NARY MEANING OF THOSE WORDS AND TO OUR EVERYDAY SCHOOL LIVES MOTHER AND DAD Those Two mainsails on our ship aT liTe upon whom we depend Tor our necessiTies aT liTe. They are Those Two people who are very proud aT us when we geT on The "honor roll" or do some such good deed and are The very same people who raise The "dickens" wiTh us when we make one liTTle "slip up." They are Those Two characTers whom we call The "Old Man" and The "Old Lady," when speaking aT Them among ourselves. They are The ones who undersTand our problems and help us To geT our righT TaoT TirsT7 They are The angels on earTh who Teach us how To walk, Talk, and geT along in liTe. Yes, our parenTs hold The warmesT spoT in our hearT and also The dearesT. SCHOOL A pile OT bricks wiTh a hollow inside where The kids are called sTudenTs IT is The place we brag abouT aTTending when iT has done someThing valuable, and which we disown when iT has done someThing discrediT- able. IT is The place we cheer Tor aT our ball games and pep meeTings yeT someTimes secreTly wish iT would burn down. lT is in realiTy The place ThaT ouTwardly we accepT as a "have-To'be" yeT inwardly we.hold iT close To our hearTs wiTh greaT honor and pride. STUDENTS Those Two legged sacks oT bones who derive much pleasure and enTer- TainmenT Trom asking many caTchy quesTions oT Teachers in The vain hope ThaT The quesTions will end in a lengThy discussion so ThaT They can wasTe The Time in class and Thus noT have To sTudy. They are The adolescenTs who spend six hours a day in school work in exchange Tar a liTTle Time To whisper, wriTe noTes, or Tell some new iokes. They are really The gangling youThs who enTer high school in search OT higher educaTion and leave iT Teeling ThaT iT was Time well spenT Tor The good Times, knowledge, and many new Triends whom They have gained. Page ll 1 l To Mother and Dad We Dedicate This Year's "OLD NOKOMISH We dedicaTe This yearbook, noT To a comic sTrip char- acTer, some hero long dead, or some poliTician, buT in- sTead To The ones whom we have always, and shall al- ways, look up To-our moThers and dads. In The dedi- caTion of This yearbook we Teel ThaT we should dedicaTe iT To Those who have been behind us and pushed us when we needed iT: To Those who have done Their besT To pre- pare us Tor The real liTeg To Those who have broughT up The younger generaTion, us, To believe in democracy: T0 Those who sTand ouT TirsT in our mind, Those To whom we can go in Time aT Trouble and who share worries wiT.h us. As we have grown older and advanced in our classes. we have come To The realizaTion aT The meaning of our parenTs and of Their sacriTices, ThaT we mighT live and have a beTTer life and educaTion Than They had. Yes, iT is TiTTing and proper ThaT we should offer up This comparaTively small TribuTe To Those Two lovely char- acTers, in The hope ThaT They will see ThaT we realize and are Thankful Tor The many blessings, kind words, and help They have given us. I offer This yearbook To my oarenTs-The ones whom The Lord and I boTh know are in realiTy angels in disguise. Page I3 MR. E. W.

Bob Peel played as one of lhe leam's guards and was nol oflen replaced dur- ing lhe season. Bob had a knack of laking lhe ball off lhe bankboard, which made him very valuable. See you nexl year, Bob. George Pepas played lhe olher guard. George was small, bul lasl. l-le pushed more lhan a few shols over lhe defense and lhrough lhe baskel. George proved his abilily in passing and handling lhe ball. This was George's lasl year on lhe leam. The Season The Redskins slarled oul wilh a bang-up viclory over Morrisonville. The five looked good unlil lhey were slopped wilh a viclory by Ramsey.
