Frxends of Northern Mxchxgan Chrzstnan I-hgh School we the students thmk that a good way to
open our annual 15 to review the xmprovements that have been done to our school durmg the past
Our lxbrary was an operatxon in the new buzldxng for the fxrst time thxs year The many new
books that have been added were purchased by means of an annual one hundred dollar gxft from the
Hxgh School Cxrcle Th1s orgamzatxon also contnbuted the table and chanrs that rnake our lmbrary
a pleasant place to study Of course some supervxsxon IS necessary so a group of students were
selected to serve as hbrarxans
Our gym xs fast becoming a well equlpped commumty meetxng place as well as an athletlc
arena The stage was provxded wlth curtams and wxth the help of the Northern MlChlgaB Gxrls
League an overhead mxcrophone was mstalled Our gym was used for practzce tlns year by our
newly equipped basketball team Volleyball and table tenms are also now played m the gym
Our school office was nn the new buxldmg for the fxrst time also The I-hgh School Cxrcle ur
mshed rt with desks a table and a dztto machmne
Turmng now to the school nn general we can see many xmprovements Inside of the school we
have a new bubbler coat racks chan' racks and another piano Outszde of the school there rs now
an asphalt path between buxldmgs lxghts placed at vanous places to ard walkxng and parkmg at
mght and a landscapxng Job that everyone hopes w1ll develop xnto a beautxful lawn
The changes come so quxckly that even as tlus annual as bexng prxnted somethxng new has un
doubtedly been added All of these tlungs have come only through the txreless efforts of such organ
xzatzons as the Hxgh School Cxrcle and mdxvxduals such as Reverend Kenbeek Reverend Wezeman
Mr and Mrs Helms and others who gxve so freely of thexr time
MR RICHARD KOOY

How quxckly your four years at Northern Mlclugan Chr1st1an have sped' If seems
but yesterday that you entered hlgh school as bewxldered youngsters and now you are
already on the threshold of maturlty Yours has been a blessed chxldhood born 1n the
covenant brought up 1n a Chrlstxan home and educated ln a Chrxstlan church and
Chr1st1an school these have been real prxv1leges Are you ready now to assume the
responsxbxlxtxes and obhgatmons of Chrxstxan adults?
Chr1st1an1ty means more than a knowledge of God s Word It means more even
than faxth 1n God Chr1st1an1ty 1S also a way of llfe It means lxvxng and domg almost
exactly the opposxte from our natural lnclxnatxons It means seekmg the welfare and
IIBPPIHCSS of othe s lt means a wxllxngness to do God's wxll If at t1mes xt seems
hard to see clearly just what God s wxll may be perhaps the best start 15.10.51 to
start to make a beg1nn1ng as best we know how It IS our smcere hope that you have
th1s desxre to do Hxs wxll and that your Chr1st1an educatxon may help you to mtegrate
your Chrlstxan knowledge wxth Chr1st1an lxvlng
That man 15 blest who fearxng God
From s1n restra1ns h1s feet
We are reluctant to bld you good bye but we are happy wxth you that you have
achxeved to th1s goal a hxgh school d1ploma Congratulatxons to you Senxors of

The f1rst basketball teams of N C H named Comets by a school vote were organ
1zed th1s wmter And desplte bemg hand1capped by a cement floor they at once began
practxce The flI'St team pract1ced the last perxod on Monday Wednesday and Fnday and
after school on Thursday The second team practlced the seventn perxod on Monday
Wednesday and Frxday and after school on Tuesday
On January 9th wxth a couple months of pract1ce the Cnrlstxan Comets met the
McBa1n Ramblers ' m Chr1st1an's f1rst game They lost 71 to 14 and tne second team lost
54 to 18 It can truthfully be samd that none of the team went home mad and a number of
the cheerers spoke w1th modxfxed volces the next day They were hoarse'
The second team 1S showxng the rnaklngs of a very good future team and there 15 lxttle
doubt that the Comets w1ll soon take then' place among other hzgfm school teams
Our baseball team IS ln very good shape thls year We have a new group whlch 15 bexng
broke ln but they are a flne bunch of talented baseball players and can show thexr abxlxty
for xndxvxdual and teamwork plays on the held We also nave a group of seasoned players
and they are Mearl Hoekwater with a battlng average of 428 a long ball mtter who last
year h1t three txmes as many doubles trxples and home runs as smgles also a very good
Zu1derveen wzth a batt1ng average of 111 a fast outfxelder last year and trylng for f1rst
base th1s year and Ray Brxnks wxth a batt1ng average of 222 who alternated p1tch1ng and
shortstop last year lost a close game agalnst Tustln and won easlly over Stoney Corners
So when the 'rookxes get together wlth the old txmers they ought to be able to
crack the cover clean off the cabbage
Last fall the baseball team not belng orgamzed certain actxv1t1es of many types wh1ch
were not organxzed SPeC1flC3lly were partlcxpated mn by varxous groups of students Tne
f1rst of these was football entered xnto by a group of the mascullne gender who were shown
the fundamentals of 'touch football a mod1f1ed form of the real th1ng The last perxod
was devoted to thxs At th1s txme other groups orgamzed volleyball teams Th1s was played
at noons and last perxods usually an the gym Later basketball nets were put up and
basketball teams used the leftover port1on of the gym Flve boys were appoxnted by the
Student Councll to captam the volleyball and basketball games Stzll later rn the wmter P1ng
pong came 1nto full swmg The tables were moved from the basement of the old buxldxng
xnto the gym wmch gave the players more room
The gxrls monopolzze the gym on Wednesday and Frxday wxth thelr basketball teams
They also practnce the last perxod on Tuesdays and Thursdays although they have not as yet
orgamzed a girls team
