When the school year 1907-1908 opened at the Normal, the registration of Sophomores was 90. Several who might possibly have ranked as Juniors preferred to cast their lots with the Class of 1910.
We considered ourselves fortunate indeed as a class to secure the services of Miss Ellis as adviser. She has led us through a most profitable and prosperous year.
At an early date we met for class organization, and elected C. Gordon Beck president, 'Mary Ellenberger vice-president, Lauretta Conn secretary, and Roy Lee treasurer. This able body of officers has steered our “Soph” ship thru' all kinds of waters. The social functions of the class have been characterized bv the same hearty class spirit that has characterized us in all fields. We shall not soon forget these good times.
In all lines of school endeavor—athletics, association work, debating and iiterary societies—the Sophomores figure prominently, everywhere is Sophomore enthusiasm felt. Someone has suggested that our scarlet and cream should be exchanged for some other color combination that would better express our •‘veiling” propensities.
Let us look at our record for this school year’s athletics. Two of the Normal • pigskin ljooters were represented by Lincoln and McReynolds, who are said to be the swiftest tackles in Nebraska. The second teams were composed largely of our classmen—among them Lee, Jennings, Magor, Stoddard and Guilfoil. who were always “there with the goods.” But we must not forget Beck, who would have made end had it not been for the stringency of parental rule, nor Aden, the famous fullback from Rising City, who would have made that place had he not been physically incapacitated, and so was not allowed to try out.
When Dr. Scherer had made up his basket ball teams, we saw on the boys’ team Gordon Beck and C. P. Schott, who was made captain. In the girls’ team were Edith Phillips and Esther Blankenship, who are unexcelled as forwards. Miss Phillips is a sure player who seldom misses a goal. (Indeed, the only record we have of her having lost her head was in the game played when her friend "Bucter” from York was in town and was late to the game. She hoped to make a record that would win her a home—but such is life!)
Our class has taken part in all the interclass championship games, our boys winning the pennant held last year bv the Juniors, and greatlv to their surorise and ours as Jennings showed “Swede" how to play ball, while Lee, J. Schott, Rost and Wrightsman brought the rest along with sure and equal care.
The Sophomore indoor base hall team defeated the Freshmen, who are anything but poor players—then defeated the Seniors, thus winning that championship of the school. Their success was due to good coaching and splendid field work. Captain Weaver is a “slaughcr” at the stick and a twister in the box. There was Esther Blankenship, who played short stop and was considered the swiftest base runner on the team, and Miss Nicklc, who has the eye and the nerve. Then Miss Longfellow is certainly a wonder behind the bat.
Our girls’ basket ball team has a proud record notwithstanding their failure to win the pennant.
With the good record of this past year in mind, we can hopefully predict a bright future for the class of 1910. We trust our class next year will be larger, stronger and more successful than Wfc have been as Sophomores, thus reflecting credit upon our school.
Thy loyal children sing thy praise;
Our Nebraska Normal.
Thy color true they proudly raise, Our Nebraska Normal.
We shout aloud the glorious name,
We pledge to keep it free from shame, To addjiew honors to thy f2111c,
Our Nebraska Normal.
