Page Ten TAMBULA 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. 3 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 lfillti. 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.

HI-Y 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- tivelv. GIRL RESERVES 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. GIRL RESERVES - First RoursMerrick. Garrett. Sudekum. Lawson. Buyers.

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.

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. Page Eighteen, GLEE CLUBS BOYS' 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. GIRLS' 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.

Page Nineteen A'CAPELLA CHOIR 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 harmony. 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- tion convention. In the comparatively short time that it has been formed. Northwestern's Acapella, choir has soared high, and we may feel sure that it will continue rising to even loftier heights. First l?mu'-Frew.

Page Twenty ORCHESTRA 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. SENIOR BAND This year the band has been divided into two divisions! third and fourth hours. Under the capable supervision and direction of Roy M. Miller, who is also a teacher at Wayne Vniversity, the band is progressing rapidly. Every year the high standard of excellence set hy the preceding hand is reached and then some. The drilling ot' the hand has been under the supervision of the R. U. T. C.g so that alone should show how excellent their training By all evidence, the senior band will continue to be 'ttopsf' 0llf'Ill'lSTR .K SIGNIUR HAND l"if'.vf lforr--Fields. Guenther.

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. 1'rc.widcnt '--- Jean 'Folkmire 09365 Jane XVeyer 119373 Via-0-President Nedra Buyers 1192161 Nancy Beebe 1193-ITJ Secretary - - Carol Zander Colleen Sudekum FENCING CLUB 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.

Second Row-eXVarner, Greenberg, Terrell, Kreitz, Perlman, 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. CAMERA CLUB 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 camera. 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. 171,00 Twenty-11 i nc UNITED ARTSMEN Left to Right-Meyers. Brown. Bowers. Meaclnun.

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.

Abdo. 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 smart alecks. 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 time. 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 Shaw. 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- western. 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 energetic 12-Bls. 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.

Page Smrenty-four 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. ROOSEVELT HOUSE 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 the library. 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."

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 possible. 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. LINCOLN HOUSE 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 the house. 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 instructors on the importance of their subject and the tield it otters. Two days there is musical entertaimncnt for the boys. The other oflicers were: in the spring term, vice-president. Richard Slack: secretary. Elmer RBHIIIHPQ in the fall term, vice-president, .linnny Wanlessg secretary, Eugene NYolford. Second record otiicers are as follows: l'resident, Marvin Zeulaufg vice-president, Frank Sutchg secretary, James Spatiord. Mr. Stoll, the house principal. is a very encouraging man. He not only believes in a strong mind but also in a, strong body. Puyc Scrcnfy-.s'i:v ir ak 'A' ak 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 former students.

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. --- FOOTBALL Fifst Roar-J.

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. Page Eighty-our BASKETBALL --- Top Row-George, J. Van Vleck, Coach Carty, B. Van Vleck, Nelson. Bottom Row-Johnson, Milligan, Mr. Maris, Buhrer, Swayze. Page Eighty-two 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 Van Vleck. 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. BASEBALL First Row-Milligan, George, Sale, Nelson, Smith, Lewis, Johnson.

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. Page Eighty-three 'i "Y" f'IiI'l5 First IFon"fMillig::l11. Wie-gaund.

"N"-CLUB The HN" Ulub is a well known organization made up of athletes who have won their "Ns" in varsity sports. ln its membership are some of the best athletes in the state. 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 Dennis, vice-presidentg and -Iohn Lewis, secretary. The spring term found the following' men in otiieo: John Lewis, president: Howard Milligan, vice-presidentg and Harry Gi-egoiy, secretary. TRACK TEAM Northweslei-n's track team this year was far from a, Pity Cham- pionship team and it was the sec-ond year in which they had not Iinished high in the West Side standings. Bernard Stienbacker, a Foltz polevaulter. placed in the lVest Side meet and Hoy Rostel, high jumper, won lirst in the NVest Side and Uity meets. These hard working track teams deserve much credit for their many long hours of work and we sincerely wish Coach Sam Bishop and his boys the best ol' lurk in the coniing events. Page Hiylrly-fmlr 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 lively season. 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. BOYS' TENNIS 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.

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 developed here. 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.

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 swimming teams. 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.

GIRLS' GOLF 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.

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.
