G. HOMER WRIGHTSMAN
(I. II. Wriglitsman was horn down on the Nemaha river bottoms November 9. 1888. Ilomer received his early training in the rural schools of Nemaha county, entering the Normal in the fall of 05. He early developed a mania for tiddlc-dc-winks, marbles, and basket-ball. Mr. Wriglitsman has an abundance of class spirit, having played on the class teams of 07 and ’08. When Mr. Meyer left the team, Wriglitsman climbed into the position of forward, which place lie held down creditably till the close of the season.
BERT E. SWENSON
B. E. Swenson is another Shicklcy high schoo1 ’net, and has helped in
establishing a reputation for her at the Normal tin c some time to erase.
“Swede,” as he is affectionately called by the stuc. , viands 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 205 pounds, a perfect specimen, brain, body and brawn. Swenson is a good student and a fine athlete. He is fast on his feet for a man of bis size, doing the hundred yards in 11 seconds. He is probably the best all-round man that the Normal has ever put out. He has played center on the football team for three years, and lias a two-years baseball record. This is his second year at basket-ball, and his ability to get the ball at center every time has no doubt added considerably to the number of points scored by the Normal this season.

GIRLS’ CLASS GAMES
Although a great deal of interest is centered about the first team, the class games furnished the real spirit of the year’s work.
The Sophomore girls showed their class spirit by going down to practice baseball long before the other classes thought of class games. They may be little, but they arc mighty.
The first class game was the baseball game between the Juniors and Seniors. This, of course, was very exciting. Indeed, some of the Juniors had nervous prostration after the game. Among these were Herr Schott, the famous yell leader of the Junior class, and G. Heck, the president of the Junior class.
The game resulted in a tie. Score 16 to 16. The Juniors even accused the Senior pitcher of being so accommodating as to actually try to hit the bat. F.Ilen YVahlstrom was martyr to the cause. In making a slide for first base she sprained her ankle very severely.
One evening it was decreed by the Athletic Board that the Juniors and Seniors should play this tie off. So as dutiful children the Juniors filed out; and out marched the dignified Seniors.
Since the Seniors had had one person hurt, they were so cautious that they were defeated. The score was 15 to 7.
It must be decided what class this Junior team should next defeat. So the Sophomores played a combination team of Freshmen and Specials. Score t6 to 8 in favor of the Sophs.
We now come to the biggest game of all—Sophs, and Juniors. It was announced in chapel one day that they would play at 4:30 o’clock P. M. So a great crowd gathered. Seniors yelling for Sophomores. Freshies and Specials yelling for Juniors, and every one yelling for some one.
The Sophomores played a splendid game. The boys always say, “Girls can’t throw or catch a ball.” This certainly could not be said of the Sophomore battery.
The Juniors won by a score of 10 to 9. They now proudly wave the girls’ indoor baseball pennant.
The next class game played was a game of basket-ball between Juniors and Seniors. This game was not very exciting, as it was so easy for the Seniors. Score 35 to 15 in favor of the Seniors.
Several of the Senior girls played on the class team last year as Juniors. As they won the basket-ball pennant last year it is not to be wondered that they won it again this year.
