Northwestern went scouting around
for a new kind of production to put
on for the autumn of 19236. The out-
eoine of this seareh was an idea for it
variety show. The plan of the show
was also unusual, for the niethod of
selecting the east was like that of an
amateur hour. Any student or group
of students who had something to offer
by way of entertainment was invited
to have an audition before a group of
teaeliers acting as judges, After many
trials and rejeetions the amateurs who
sueeeeded perfected their parts and the
show was arranged in a definite order.
The title chosen for it was tfTa1nbula,f'
which was the name given to' an ini-
prolnptu show given on shipboard.
Tl1e curtain was raised disclosing a brilliant Mexican scene. A gorgeous costumed
chorus and Don Sprague, Ruth Iglesias, Robert Monroe, Robert lVei1', and Milton Merry
sang: Leona McKenzie. Mildred -lirasik, Brooks iVest, and Herbert Lightman dancedg
Miss Hazel Carton and Miss Alice M. Lowden directed this scene.
The entire act consisted of Haig Sarabedien, violinist, and Leo Gai-ahedien, pianist.
Scene Two was a short farce entitled t'Meridein's Right Hand.,
ln the third scene an N. B. C. concert was broadcast.
Hartwell's Harmonizers. an excellent orchestra dressed in white jackets, played the
familiar theme songs of all the famous orchestras on the radio. The iniitations of Guy
Lomlwai-do, the "Hit Parade" and others were very good.
"Mars Martian On," or the fourth scene, was given by the Northwestern Radio Players
under the direction of Mr. -loseph K. Boltz.
This was an original skit demonstrating how much more modern Mars was than Earth i11
The last act contained the llarrison Brothers in a guitar-song-and-dance specialty.
The tinal scene of the program took place H011 the Range."
The "Taml1ula" was a greater success than anyone ever hoped, and it deserves the four
stars it will receive on the list of unusually tine productions given at Northwestern.

The activities of the Hi-Y are based on the purpose of creating and
maintaining throughout the school and community high standards
of t'hristian character and living. Meetings are l1eld each Tuesday
evening at tl1e Y. M. G A.. a member's home. or a neighborhood Church.
There are occasional "combined" meetings with the Girl Reserves.
Each meeting generally includes a. business meeting, entertainment.
and a devotion led by a member. On every Friday morning at 6:30
tl1ere is a meeting of the members of all chapters. Here breakfast
is served: it is followed by a business meeting.
Social activities for the year included dances. outings. and parties.
Each chapter did its share at Thanksgiving and tlhristmas by sending
out baskets. The chapters are ever willing and ready to aid the
school in any way possible.
All of the chapters are sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. The ehapter
advisers are Mr. M. D. .Ierou1e, 'White Uhapterg Mr. Ii. IC. King. Red
Fhapter: and Mr. I". G. Sisson, Gray Uhapter.
Presidents for the fall term were Don Hartwell, lVhite: Earle
Mott. Red: and Ted Hart, Gray. Those who succeeded them in the
spring were Don Hartwell, Ray Danto, and Charles Pullman, respec-
The Girl Reserves under the guiding direction of Miss L. IC. Holte
man and Miss ID. I.. Emmons, have undertaken and accomplished
several projects in the past year. As a Christmas project, they
befriended a needy family and watched out for their welfare through-
1.nt the winter. At present the girls are making garments for the
Needlework Guild. The girls who graduate are given a banquet by
the renraining Girl Reserves.
This is a semi-annual event. Every few months the Northwestern
Girl Reserves meet with the City-Wide Girl Reserves and discuss
activities common to both. One night the Girl Reserves had a pot
lurk at the Girls' "Y" and invited a few lucky fellows to the 'filo-ed"
dance al'terwards. The Mothers were invited to a Mother-Ilaughter
tea and were royally entertained by an old-fashioned melodrama..
The Girl Reserves with the lli-Y boys had an outing at River Rouge
Park near the end of the term, when the weather was at its best.
The purpose of the Girl Reserves is to raise their own standards
and ideals and thus enjoy a more complete appreciation of lite.

Many times during the past year has this scene
taken place, in each case bringing new glory to
t"e group Hllfl to its director, Mr. Joseph K. Holtz.
Because of the very latest type public address
apparatus, so generously donated by the Alumni
and the Student Council, the Players have been
able to practice over real radio equipment and
hear exactly how their voices sound. The Radio
Players presented Longfellow's Evangeline over
VVJR and the March of Youth over YVWV-I, doing
a, fine job in each instance.
The success of the sparkling musical show,
"'l'ambula,', was partly due to the hilarious humor
of 'fMars" Martian Onf' amusing slice of slapstick
dished up by the Players. Five Players were also
cast in the 12A play.
The aim of the Radio Club is to aid in develop-
ing clear speaking voices as Well as culture, and
to prepare students for careers in radio.
The Science illld Radio Club, directed by Mr.
Austin Cline, continues to explore the fascinating
world about us.

Organized with the help of Miss Alice Lowden, the group sang
I'or HTambula,,' and on several occasions outside of school.
THE GIRLS' DOUBLE TRIO
The Girls' Double Trio, composed of Mildred -lirasik, Jean Hub-
bard, Patricia Donelly, Irene O'Brien, Kathlyn MeKinnan and Jean
Ruhl, have proved to the satisfaction of those who have had the
pleasure of listening to them, the old adage that "a thing worth
doing at all is worth doing well." The girls, ably coached and
accompanied by Miss Luarietta Kenk, have sung on radio stations
TVJR and TVTV-T. They will sing this sunnner at a National Educa-
tion Association luncheon, and at a conference later that afternoon.
In the past they have pleased listeners at Mai-ygrove College, Parent-
Teaehers Meetings, and other lunclieons throughout the city.
The Boys, Glee Club is composed of eleventh and twelfth
grade boys who, because of their excellent Voices and ability
to read music, were recommended by their music instructors.
Although most of the boys' time was spent in collaboration
with the Girls, Glee Club, they put forth special effort and
have sung at various church and club organizations through'
out the city. They will sing for the American Classical
League Section at the opening of the National Education
Association. the twenty-seventh ot' June. The boys are led
on to greater achievements by Miss Alice M. Lowden.
The Girls' Glee Club is made up of girls that have been
recommended by their music teachers for their quality of
voice and their ability to read notes.
This terin their time has been taken up in preparing for
tl1e Spring Concert and also getting ready to participate in
the National Education Association meeting that will be held
in Detroit in June.
Miss Laurietta K1-nk. the Girls' tllee Club instructor. stated
that she has derived a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure
in training the excellent voices of the group and congratulates
them on their line work.

Many times during the past year have the halls resounded
to the stirringly rich tones of the Capella Choir, a group of
which Xorthwestern High School may well be proud.
The members of the group. which is so very beautifully
directed by Miss Alice M. Lowden, are most carefully selected
by her. and must have good ensemble voices, tl1e ability to
read music. and an equally important desire to work hard.
The singers are not content to turn out a "fair" piece of work.
but strive unceasingly to weave an elaborate pattern of perfect
The greatest honor conferred on the choir was its being
selected by a state committee to represent Michigan and
Detroit in the competition festival of the North Central
Music Educators Conference held in Minneapolis from April
fourth to eighth. The thirty-six singers merited a good rating
at this festival a11d were combined into' a huge choir of about
one thousand voices. which was directed by Dr. Hollis Dann
and sang before the Convention audience.
In March. the Acapella Choir made its annual trip to Ypsi-
lanti to sing during the Bach Festival directed by that out-
standing conductor. Mr. Frederick Alexander.
An event which Detroit music lovers will remember happily
for years to come was the pulsating performance of Yerdits
"Requiem', presented at Masonic Temple under the direction
of Mr. Franco Ghione in honor of the late Mr. Ossip Gabrilo-
witsch. In this inspiring' tribute, the Acapella choir formed
part of the large choir that. along with Metropolitan Opera
stars. sang the vibrant music to the accompaniment of the
Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Thaddeus WVronski. direc-
tor of the Detroit Civic Opera Company, assisted in training
the choir for this occasion.
On June 5. the Acapella choir sang on the March of Youth
program over radio station NVYV-I, and on June 27 were
enthusiastically received at the National Education Associa-

Northwestern seems destined to have an excellent orchestra
every year. .l,0l'llilllS the fact that Mr. Hoy M. Miller is the
leader has something to do with it. To be a lll0llllH'I' of the
orchestra, one must pass rigid written tests every few weeks
and a playing test every few nlonths.
The orchestra. played over the radio this term and gave a
very successful 1ll'0Q,'l'i1lll, which was enjoyed by all.
During the year, Mr. Miller and his "Melodeers" may be
counted on for melody at the school plays, rallys, etc. The
excellent music is certainly enjoyed hy all.

Tl1e Creative Dance Club has made rapid progress since its
founding a little over one year ago. The enthusiasm of Miss
Prudentia, Huifman incites in each girl a sincere etfort to
do her best. The dancers had more opportunity than ever
before to create compositions. Activity began with the
dancers pai-taking in the variety show. t'Tambula.,' A per-
formance was given in January at the IZA Mother and
Daughter Teag May l the ,group demonstrated technique and
the method of composing dances and some completed compo-
sitions for the Schoolmasters' Club at Ann Arbor. The
Dance Club took part in a symposium given at Southeastern
High School and gave a recital for Northwestern to bring a
year full of accomplishments to a close.

Tl1e Fencing Club, under the leadership of Miss Beatrice
Merriam, retired a team undefeated from the Held save for
one exception during the season.
Composed of both boys and girls, the club was well repre-
sented in the men's and women's individual state tournament,
being unusually fortunate in possessing' a member, Byron
Krieger, who set the precedent of being the iirst high school
boy ever to place in the State Finals. XVith Miss Merriamls
and -lane Scott's foil trophies, augmented by John Dreheris
medal in saber, the Northwestern Club has taken a. total of
seven medals in the yearls competition.
The Club coach is fast gaining the reputation in fencing
circles of turning out crack teams, which, because of the
scarcity oi' high school competition, scheduled most of their
meets with private schools and colleges. The tirst girls' team
competition was held this year with Wayne liniversity.

BADMINTON CLUB '
The Badminton Club is a newly organized club in Northwestern.
lt is fast taking' its place as one of the most popular. The club was
started by Mrs. Mildred Dunn. At tirst it was open only to girls,
but later boys were accepted. If you look in the girls' gym between
three and six o'clock, you will see three courts on which there is
plenty of fast playing. You will also see many waiting their turns.
The club's coach and founder is an excellent player herself. With
her coaching, the team, which was selected from club members, was
able to put up excellent stands against teams from other schools. In
fact, they did so well that they are able to boast a clean record of
no defeats at the end of the season.
Mr. -Iohn Bovill undertook the task ot' reorganizing' the Camera
Club. Only a few members of last term's organization returned,
many being lost by Q'l'2ltlll2ltl01l. Although only a new club, it proved
to be one of the best oi' its kind ever introduced into Northwestern.
Its aim is to acquaint the members with everything connected with
The meetings, at which were discussed the merits of the different
kinds and makes of camerasg lensg Iilmsg and the printing and devel-
oping' of lilrns, were held every two' weeks in school. The club had
several men, connected with prominent camera shops in the city,
speak at its meetings.

To meet the increasing demand for new publicity at Northwestern,
there was re-organized, this year, the "United Artsmenf' This small
group of ten boys has complete charge of publicity in the school.
Membership is limited to ten, and members are selected by Mr. J. K.
Boltz, faculty adviser, on the basis of skill and experience. This
yearis Artsmen included John Bowers, president: Bob Cameron,
first vice-president, Marvin Brown, second vice-president, VVarren
Yvinstanly, secretaryg and Howard Kratz, treasurer. The remaining
included Dick Genge, .lim Hoc-kenberry, lid Kreig, Dick Meachan,
and Dick Meyers.
The U. A. has served practically every organization at Northwestern
and will continue to live up to the high standards set by the Artsmen
Behind all of the festive and theatrical happenings at Northwestern
are the tours of planning' and work of the Auditorium Staff. Dances
in the gym must be lighted and decorated . . . Someone wants to use
the Public Address System . . . An outside show moves on to our
stage and there must be electrical and stage works for that . . . Then
the Tambula comes along, an all school show requiring unusual ideas
and new settings . . . more hours of work . . . The year is ended with
the biggest show of all, the ftliate Christopher Bean" . . . requiring
many rehearsals before the showing . . . ln January the staff was
given the able assistance of Edward Sokolowski, a trained technician,
who worked under the direction of Mr. Joseph K. Boltz.

Immediately after summer vacation, the Norwester Staff
was appointed. John Bowers, well known for l1is activities
in the art department, on The Colt, and for his scholastic
ability was chosen lClditor of the 19317 Norwester. -Iohn's
experience on school publications and his amazing artistic
ability made him well qualilied for this position. The 1937
Xorwester, because of the tireless eli'orts of John and his
staff, should go down as one of the best Norwesters in the
history of the school.
The difference between Northwestern's year book a11d those
of other schools is one of quality. The Norwester, ever since
its organization in 1914, has stood for the ultimate in year
books. In order to keep up this high standard, the seniors
voted to' pay an extra twenty-five cents to be used for part of
the engraving fee.
Miss Florence Guenther and Mr. Joseph K. Boltz deserve
the bulk of the credit for the production and beauty of this
present book. Because of the success and colorfulness of
'tTambula.'l it was chosen as the theme of the book.
Candid camera shots, taken by James Yoohrees, are a
special feature ol' this, the 1937 Xorwester.
Nadine Dawe directed the activities of the circulation statl.
with the counsel of Mr. Joseph Blumenthal. Keen competition
featured the selling of Norwester Tags. Kenny Hibbard.
Alfred Sockowicz, Joy Connor, and Eleanor S1-oka were among
the leaders in the number of sales. A special contest was
held for second record people, proving very successful.
Mr. J. ti. NVolber lent the stall' the bcnelit of the long
experience he has had in directing such activities as the
Norwester. Mr. A. H. Keenan's immediate assistance proved
invaluable as in years past.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF
JANUARY CLASS OF I937
We, the graduating class of January 1937, of the
City of Detroit, in the County of lVayne, and State
of Michigan, being of sound mind and memory, do
make, publish, and declare this our last will and testa-
ment, in the manner following, that is to say:
To all 12-B girls, we gladly leave the fascinating
little curl on the forehead of our Class president,
NVe hope that half of the 12-A treasury doesn't leave
with Dave Casto.
Nedra Buyers, Lillian Mogge, Oscar Linse, Verda
Wentling, Merton Davis, Harold Davis, Elaine Mc-
Mullen, Eleanor Merkle, Frank Ruhl, John Douglas,
and Morton Levenson proudly leave with their Summa
Cum Laude's, and bequeath their brains to all 12-B
Ray Heimstadt joyfully leaves to all geography
students his complete hatred of said subject.
Louis Hoagland and Ruth Kilpatrick leave their
almost Siamese-twin reputation to Margaret Knisel
and Marian Krehl.
Don Sprague's studious brief-case is duely be-
queathed to Dave Nelles.
Phylis Carlson most regretfully leaves her dancing
partner, Bob Ringel.
The glib over-worked tongue of Harold Davis is just
left, and may no one ever find it.
Lorenzo Severnor, Louise Breuhan, Earle Mott,
Dolly Bloor, Louise Carrol, Emma Coleman, and
Maxine Murphy will soon leave school for the first
Irene Meyer and Dorothy Gapske bequeath their
blond locks to Tenho Sihmonen.
Howard llfindsor, Morton Levenson, and Merton
Davis leave their many oratorical powers to LeRoy
Lucille Chambers leaves to settle down ? ??? ???
Frank Ruhl leaves his graceful diving in the minds
of all who have seen him.
To Colleen Sudckum, .lean Folkmire bequeaths her
winning ways with the male population of North-
Ted Hart and Dale WVhitchurse leave their height
in the clouds.
XViln1a McDonough leaves her bashful ways behind
for anyone who cares to pick them up and resolves
to be more self-confident.
All those with Cu Laude Diplomas leave with
honors and bequeath their outstanding ability to all
Lucille Finkbeiner leaves under the desk all the gum
she was caught chewing in Mr. O'Brien's class with
the hope that the lucky, person finding it will enjoy it
as much as she had.
Margaret Brelsford leaves her boyish attire and
hearty handshake to all sissies.
The good luck of securing caps and gowns is left
to the next graduating class. tMay their debates in
English class be as effective as ourslj
Janet Tainsh, Marjorie Dicks and Jean Folkmire
leave the brain-wrecking job of composing the next
Class day will to whoever wants it.

lVith these pages go the best wishes of the
nienibers of Noi-Wester Staff to the graduates
of Northwestern Evening High School.
These students have attained an average of
twenty or more honor points each semester.
To maintain this standard one must attain an

BETSY ROSS HOUSE
The new location of the Betsy Boss House seems to have a great deal of intluence
over the activities of the members despite the fact that they are minus a clock and
a few other knick-knacks, They have repeated the history of 15924 by winning the
lnterhouse basketball and swimming chalnpionship again in 19327. But it isn't like
the Betsy Boss house to achieve one mark and be content, for she produced the young
lady who received the Wayne scholarship, known to Northwesternies as Mils Lillian
Mogge and also brought forth Miss Elaine Mc-Mullen. who received the scholarship
medal for girls.
It is extremely difIicu.t to discover what it is that so inspires the girls of the Betsy
Boss House. One of the answers has been: the tine leadership of Miss Vera li. Fox
a11d the friendly little chats she has with the girls at record on the subject of sports
and scholarship. Then again it has been said that the beautiful picture of Betsy Boss
patiently sewing the first American Flag inspired the girls to keep the name of Betsy
Ross held as high as it may be held. But whatever it is, it has done a great deal for
the past and present and may it do as much for the future.
The past year has seen a change in location for Roosevelt House which left its
place in the basement in favor of the large, cheerful Boom 102, which formerly housed
l'nder the guidance of Mr. Myron ll. .leron1e, Roosevelt boys have succeeded in
maintaining tl1e largest honor roll in tl1e school, and their ambition at present is to
till the spacious blackboard with names of their honor students. Roosevelt House
has been jokingly referred to as "the garden spot of Northwestern" because of the
many green plants which frame its windows and lend a cheery atmosphere.
Not only do Roosevelt boys rank at the top in scholarship achievement, but they
have also proved their superiority in the world of sports by carrying otf two of the
most coveted inter-house trophies. September saw tl1en1 out on tl1e gridiron "l'2l1'ill'
to go" and determined to capture the football championship, which they did after
a lively season. Again in the swimming meet. Roosevelt House fought hard till it
had added another victory to' its laurels. Un the executive board of the .lune grad-
uating class, Roosevelt House was well represented by two otiicers, lion Hartwell,
presidentg and Sol Love, treasurer.
And so Roosevelt marches on, striving ever to uphold its reputation of Han all-
around house of allearound fellows."

JANE AUSTEN HOUSE
Tl1is very successful house has been under the guidance ol' two capable presidents
this school year. Miss Betty Roos, and Miss Tenho Sihvonen. Miss Roos was a very
active member of Northwestern and richly deserved the presidency of -lane Austen
House. Tenho Sihvonen, vice-president ot the graduating class and a leader in many
other lines of work, was the Spring house president. Together the leadership of these
two girls indicates the high standard of leadership in -lane Austen House.
The house under the very motherly house-principal, Mrs. li. T. Watson, has pro-
gressed rapidly this year-a new room was taken over and made as homelike as
The social committee in the fall term organized and gave a very successful Christmas
party which was greatly enjoyed by all the girls.
The scholarship standing ot' the grade-room is very high-Aindeed very few houses
can boast ol' as many students on the honor roll as -lane Austen House can.
Indeed the leadership shown by this house is remarkable and will continue to be
as long as the school stands and -lane Austen House exists.
The outstanding leadership of -lack Sales, acting president of Lincoln House, has
pushed the boys ot this house to uphold long and honorable traditions in sports,
scholarship, citizenship, and work.
Lincoln House was much grieved in the past year to hear of the death of its tirst
principal, Mr. A. F. Jones. Mr. R. C. Stoll, who has taken Mr. Jones' place for the
last tive years, is a very outstanding, capable leader and has had great success in
A new system of informing the students ot' the importance and interest of various
courses is being tried. One day out of the tive is taken up with talks from the various

The other oflicers were: in the spring term, vice-president. Richard Slack: secretary.

Second record otiicers are as follows: l'resident, Marvin Zeulaufg vice-president,

Mr. Stoll, the house principal. is a very encouraging man. He not only believes
in a strong mind but also in a, strong body.

HELEN KELLER HOUSE -
Under the coinpanionable supervision of its beloved head, Miss Susanna Clough,
the girls of Helen Keller House have again proved that they live up to the house
motto, 'twhatever you do, do well."
lVith the spirit to get ahead, the girls have won honors in both scholastics and
athletics. Leora Schubert was chosen co-captain of the school hockey team, Irene
Westlund, the basketball captain, Lois Linn, the swimming captain 1 and Nadine Dawe,
tennis captain. These girls are just a few of the ones who have made good.
Since 19230. Helen Keller House had grown from a scant number of 250 commercial
students, to the present enlistment of 452, making it the youngest and largest girls,
house. Of course, there is not room enough for all of these coininercial girls, so the
11 B's. under the capable supervision of Mrs. Florence Stevens. have progressed
nicely in their room across the hall from Helen Keller.
Many of the Helen Keller aluinnae have, during the last term, returned to visit
their Helen Keller House and Miss Clough. For these girls, Miss Plough has kept an
aluiunac book in which each girl writes a few lines.
A large number of the aluinnae have gained very good positions, which proves that
the eiiiciency taught to commercial students has been accomplished by many of the

The 19137 boys' swimming team again brought the city title to
Northwestern. For the last tive years Northwestern has held the
championship, and the Colts have won a total of thirteen out of
sixteen city titles, During the last eight years the Northwestern teain
has not lost a dual meet in its own pool. This record has been estab-
lished through the exceptionally skillful coaching of one of the best
coaches in the l'nited States, tloach Leo Maas.
Day after day the Colts would splash their way from one e11d of
the pool to the other, training their bodies for the big.: days to come.
To open the season, the Volts, rated as a third-rate team, gave
Southwestern a swalnping defeat by the score of 56 to 19. North-
western showed spirit, skill, and tine coaching in taking every tirst and
second in this meet. Despite this amazing victory Northwestern was
still not rated as a title threat.
The next meet, an exhibition meet with Royal Oak, was the closest
all season, with the Colts matching a S57 to 35 victory in a rough,
mineral water pool.
Evidence of a well-balanced and exceptionally tine coached team
began to show as the Volts romped over Central 513 to 212: Redford
50 to 25, Cooley 57 to Zlfig and the favorite for the title, Western, 40
to 35, to complete a season of dual meets undefeated.
ln the city meet Northwestern's strength lay in its breast-stroke,
hack-stroke and in its relays. ln the 100 yd. breast-stroke Dick
Koch set a new city record while obtaining tirst place. In the back-
stroke, Leroy Ogle and Freeman Flynn placed "one-twoll in the
tinals. The meet was taken when the tour-man relay took tirst. The
medley team, after setting an unofficial record, was disqualified. The
boys who took part in the city meet were: Leslie liyeraft, Tom Col-
hridge, Freeman Flynn, Dick Koch, Leroy Ogle, Al Puro, Dick Slack,
Captain Dick Wilkinson, Wellman Huey, and Lloyd Preston.

The football Colts of 1936 were one of the most powerful, hard
fiffliting' teams in the history of Noi-thwestern's 0'ridironers.
D 1 8
They opened the season against our neighbors, WVilbur XVrigl1t, and
scored forty points while holding their rivals scoreless.
Redford, a Veteran team, was this fast team's next victim, and the
Colts won, 13-0.
Central, a lifelong rival, proved to be another easy foe for these
unscored upon Colts, the game ending Northwestern 25, Central 0.
Things surely looked good, for our powerful team had beaten
Chadsey and XVestern, high-rated XVest Side contenders.
Then came the big day of the championship race, and Northwestern
met Cooley at the opponent's tield. Cooley had been defeated by Cen-
tral, a team that could not score against the Colts. lt appeared that
Northwestern was sure to win another XVest Side Title and be in
line for a Uity Championship, hut Cooley upset their plans by win-
ning, 19-7. Our only touchdown was scored by Frank Bradford, who
returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown.
Top Row-George, J. Van Vleck, Coach Carty, B. Van Vleck, Nelson.
Bottom Row-Johnson, Milligan, Mr. Maris, Buhrer, Swayze.
Northwesternis strong basketball team again fought their way to
the City Playoffs with one of the finest teams in the city.
During the regular season, after dropping the opener to Central
by the score of 16-24, they won the remainder of their games with
ease. One of the surprises to Northwestern was the hard battle
given them by Chadsey, with the hard-fighting Colts iinally coming
out on top-Northwestern 29, Chadsey 28. Other hard tights were
given this battling team by Cooley, Wilbur VVright, and U. of D. High.
The yearls playing was marked by the fine team work of the Van
Vleck twins with Ernie Buhrer, Ed. Johnson, "Putters7' Milligan,
Dave Nelson, and Milton George, high point honors going to John
Northwestern, defending City Champs, were up against stronger
opposition this year than ever before. Although tied with Central
for West Side Championship, this fast quintet looked bound for
another City Title. Odd things happened at Naval Armory during
the City playoffs and Northwestern took two straight defeats at the
hands of Hamtramck and Southeastern. The scores were: Ham-
tramck 20, Northwestern 18, and Southeastern 29, Northwestern 12.
First Row-Milligan, George, Sale, Nelson, Smith, Lewis, Johnson.

Boswell, Mr. Mark.
Third Row-Samarian, Van Vleck, Kalninski, Kennedy, Carts, NVeigle,
Because of the publication requirements of The Norwester, it is
impossible to print a summary of the Colts' baseball schedule. How-
ever. the Red and Gray team rated as a strong contender for the
baseball crown. Coach Leo Maas had a number of veterans back
from last yearls strong team, and at the first call for material this
year there were one hundred and titty candidates hopeful ot a posif
tion in the starting line-up.
After cutting the squad to its normal size, Coach Maas seems to
prefer Sales as catcher, with Kluck and Kennedy to relieve him,
Milton George as first-sackerg John Lewis as second-basemang Howard
Milligan as the starting short-stop, and either Dave Nelson or Charles
Kaminski working' at the third sack. In the outfield Ed Smith,
James Boswell, have Corts. and Bill VanVleck divide the garden-duty.
The coachls most difficult problem was in finding some pitchers. The
best hurlers appeared to be Ernie Buhrer, with "stuff" but weak con-
trol: Ed Johnson with his steady working, ,Frank Bradford with his
'thoppervg and Bob Schika with his blazing fast-ball.
Coach Maas always has a dangerous squad of leather-chasers to
carry on for Northwestern, and this yearls squad looked to be the
best since Northwesternis last city championship ball team in 1934.
In the practice games, which were few because of had weather,
Northwestern decisively whipped Cass Tech and Commerce and
dropped a decision to Southeastern.
For the tirst time in a number of years, the length of the school
term permits a championship play-oft series. The fellows promised to
take advantage of this fact and carry oft another city championship
for the Red and Gray at Northwestern.

Twenty-five new members were admitted into the club this year.
The "N" Club members are resperted by everyone. and to be a member
is a goal worth working for.
The club is under the able sponsorship of Mr. Arthur Carty, who
also arts as the treasurer of the club. VVith the G. A. A., the "XV Club
has been instrumental in sponsoring many dances.
ln the fall the clubs otiic-ers included Ed Abdo, presidentg Harry

found the following' men in otiieo: John Lewis, president: Howard
Milligan, vice-presidentg and Harry Gi-egoiy, secretary.

These hard working track teams deserve much credit for their
many long hours of work and we sincerely wish Coach Sam Bishop

BOYS' GOLF TEAM
In the spring a young fellow's fancy turns to golf, among other
things, and that explains why the Boys' Goll' Team is out on the
links busily engaged in perfecting its technique in anticipation of a
I'nder the experienced coaching of Mr. Bert G. Maris, the boys
are continually at work mastering the fine points of the game, which
include the grip, stance, and swing. The tealn follows no regular
set schedule, but plays invitational matches with teams on the west
side. The nieinbers of the feillll include Paul Taylor, Bob Regenhardt.
Bob Bush, Fred Piaskowski, and the newly-joined Fred Ueshger, who
is a fine player.
YVith this promising line-up, the team will be HI'?l1'lIl, to gov when
the shout of HFOREP' rings out.
Northwestern was very well represented on the tennis courts this
fall. Xelles and Uotton played No. 1. Shahinian and Collins No. 2,
and Rowe and Garwood No. 3. Shahinian and Collins were elini-
inated in the senli-finals by Nelles and Cotton who went on the
tinals where they were beaten by Central.
The teillll was coached by Mr. Arthur Carty and managed by Jini
Parker. David Xe.les, who has played two years, was captain oi'
both spring and fall teams.
Four veterans reported back this spring and the fifth position
will be a hard fought battle between the substitutes. lf the team
lives up to expec-tations, they should go places this spring.

veterans for the team, there was keen eompetition among them for
the various positions on the tirst team. The ret-ord for the season
was exceptional because the Volt girls won seven games while only
losing two mat:-hes to their opponents. The two tilts which were
lost were both close contests. Une was to the Northern girls. and
the other was to a, strong Hamtramc-lc basketball sextet. The best
showing of the season of the Uoltettes was when they beat Vooley by
a lI12ll'f2fll1 of thirty-one points.
With the graduation of eight players this year, Coach llunn will
have to rebuild next year. This will not be a ditiienlt job as the
reserves, with Lois Ball leading them, was one ot the strongest
Irene iVestlund and Jennie Shasta, Iorwards: and Lois Townsend,
ljluetta Morton, and Mary Morgan, gnardsg who were the outstanding
players formed the nnelens of this year's aggregation.
In the race for the eaptaint-y of the 1938 team, it was so close
that several ballots were needed to decide the winner, before Shirley
Meliachin emerged vietorious over June Patrielc.

After many weeks of faithful practice, with the excellent
eoac-hing and training of Miss Elsie lVatson, and with the
splendid leadership of Captain Lois Lynn, the mei-maids of
Northwestern High School splashed through tI1e 1937 season
not on top, but in full swing among the highest of sehool
This year seems to have been a year of tirst happenings.
For it is the tirst time that Highland Park Team has been
defeated, and as one n1igl1t well guess, it took the Coltettes
to do itg it is the tirst time their medley relay has ever been
defeated a11d this tragic defeat was at the hands of Cooley
teamg it is also the Iirst time Miss Watson has consented to
be in the group picture ot the team. What has she to hide?
Among the many reasons why all Northwestern ought to be
proud of the Coltettes is that there are a few ehampions
scattered throughout their team, such as lViota Prew and
-lean Nipgin. who are both bark-stroke champs.
Though this book reminds all that many grand swinnners
are being lost. it also remi11ds us that Miss Watson has her
eye on just as many newcomers in hopes that she can rebuild
just as strong a team.

l'reeise strokes and the twangingr ol' racket strings that eeho pleas-
antly when a ball is well-hit gave evidenee of spring try-outs for the
Ilirls' Tennis Team. 'llhose who were tinally seleeted by Mrs. Mildred
llunn, the eoaeh. are as follows:
Nadine llawe. .lane l'lfllIl0lltlS, -Iillltli Parker, Marian Pellitier.
Margaret llanz, lalelen Ilraeger, Shirley Melflaehin, Harriet Hostetter,
Shirley Cerriek, -lenny Shusta. -lune lloltz, Helen Arata, Dorothy
Phillips, Gloria Smith, llelen Baker, llorothy Roy.
Nadine Ilawe, who has been on the teani for two years. was elected
eaptain. The entire teani partieipated in the Mic-liigran State Girls'
Open 'Fournalnent at Kingswood Sehool, on May ll.
'l'he sehools played were Uooley, Central. Southeastern. Northern.
Haintralnek. Kingswood. and the team deserves due eredit for pro-
ducing a yery sueeesstul season.
The distinction of being a inelnber ol' the Girls' Golf Teain is indeed
one to he proud of. The slcill it requires to play a good game of golf
is not bestowed upon everyone, and Northwestern is fortunate to
have a girls' teani of outstanding ability.
Helen Dundas, the captain, eau "shoot" eighteen holes with an
unusually low score. and Shirley Mt-lflaeliin, another member of the
team, has, in one short year of playing the ganie. gained the position
of "number one" player.
Miss Prudentia Hulfnuan. the eoaeh. iinparted her extensive kn0Wl4
edge of the game to the team and helped theni develop their talent.
The result. as is generally known. is a teani ready. willing. and able
to stand up against the barbed teeth ol' opposition.

Tl1e year was "to'pped,' hy the Elllllllill G. A. A. banquet at wl1icl1

vailed among the Girls' Hockey Team this season. The leillll played
better hockey than lIl0St schools as to f0I'lll and stick work, but
failed to take advantage of tl1e "breaks" Nevertheless, tl1ey did not

TESTIMONIAI1 'FO BERT MARIS
It is proper and fitting to pause on life's way,
As we render a tribute to one while we may.
For 'tis always lllIll'Il nil-er to give fragrant bowers.
To a real n1a11 wl1o's living and eau still smell the flowers.
To that end we won't wait 'til lifl-'s span be tllled,
And we learn that our friend's voice has finally been stilled.
But now while he's still full of pep and good eheer,
We will try to tell him we are glad that he's here.
lt's tl1e privilege of few men in life to shape boys,
And to give them the training of eourage and poise,
And yet snr-h is the work of Bert Maris today,
He who moulds a tine Illilll from the 1'0llllll0IlPSlf clay.
For nearly twenty-five years. it's a very long time,
He has faithfully given a service sublime.
At Northwestern he eoael1ed in most every kI'l0SVll 51311112
Vim-tory trod i11 his wake, elevating his name.
See the plaques and tl1e 4-ups whiz-l1 are trophies of skill.
Won by boys l1e has worked witl1 and put through the 111i1l.
Un the field and tl1e diamond. in hockey and track,
None eould withstand his ge11i11s or stay l1is uttaek.
'Fhere are thousands of boys whose el1arac-ter fine,
Fan he traeed to his coaching along the straight line.
We glory i11 knowing that HIPS' won't demean,
And with us regard him i11 highest esteem.
We could go on forever, Bert, singing your praise,
And we kll0W that mere words can never you phase,
But we like you, as soldier, Kiwanian, friend and boy,
May you live many years. your noble efforts to 0Ilj0y.
Ifnanimously adopted by resolution as part of the permanent
reeords Northwest Kiwanis Club, Wednesday, March 24, 1937.
