Independent & Township Districts

Supply Toxoid for Program

            Diphtheria immunization reached the 100% mark in Nichols Public schools when Dr. V. O. Muench administered toxoid to all but 8 school children Monday, Oct. 28.  Of these eight, two were from high school and the remaining six from the lower grades. Of these, all had been previously vaccinated or were to be cared for privately.  One hundred and two were given the toxoid, 95 being school children, six faculty members, and Clarence Hillyer, janitor.

            The Nichols Independent district and Pike township school board paid for the toxoid and thru the cooperation of Dr. Muench, local physician, the immunization did not cost students residing in Pike township anything.  Others were taxed 25 cents for cost of services.  

            This step, which has been taken to safeguard the children of this community, will aid in the prevention of a diphtheria epidemic here.

Spartans to Present Tiger House Friday

Thrills, Chills, Giggles

To Reward Audience Fri. Nov. 8

            On Friday, November 8, the Spartan play cast will present Robert St. Clair’s thrilling mystery comedy entitled “Tiger House,” at the Nichols School auditorium.

            This clever mystery play which has been played by more than a thousand schools after a long, successful run on the professional stage, is laid around an isolated country estate called “Mystery Manor” because of the alleged hauntings.

            Erma Lowrie, a young shop girl, has inherited the estate from her eccentric aunt, and according to the terms of the will she must occupy the house for the period of one year.  Erma’s cousins, Arthur Hale and Oswald Kerins, her living Aunt Sophia and Peggy Van Ess, a former girl friend, are all house guests when things begin to happen!  And then – well, you must see the play to learn of the mysterious details.  There is a delightful thread of romance, clean and highly-amusing comedy, and, although the mystery element dominates, there are no dead bodies, no shots fired and nothing really gruesome.

Playing the Game Pleases Audience

Alpha Omega Production Plays Before $52 House

            The Alpha Omega Literary Society play cast able presented the comedy, “Playing the Game” before a large audience Saturday, October 25 at the Nichols School auditorium.  The players and their coach, Miss Balzer, are to be complimented for their good presentation.  Door receipts were $51.95 and expenses were approximately $20, leaving about $32 profit.

            The girls sextette and boys quartette each furnished selections between acts.  Margaret Holdeman, in representation of the cast, presented a bouquet of flowers to Miss Balzer, who coached the play.

            The cast and their coach wish to thank all who assisted in making the play possible, by lending furniture, clothing or otherwise aiding in the presentation.

Jamboree Program Being Constructed

Vaudeville, Sideshows

Contests, Games to Feature

            Jamboree events are taking form as supervisors and managers begin to outline the carnival program. The general entertainment will consist of an athletic show, a music show, community movie shots, and a vaudeville show.

            Besides these interesting set-up, there will be in constant operation a series of sideshows, contests, and novelty and refreshment booths.

            Each division has begun work on shaping events into an interesting and well-rounded evening.

            Funds, if sufficient, are to be used for the purchase of caps and capes for the school band.  If not adequate for this purpose, the money is to be used for the purchase of school equipment.

Keep Well

            With winter almost here colds and sore throats are already beginning to make their appearance.

            Everyone has so much to do these next few weeks that no one wants to be handicapped with a cold.

            Too often a pupil comes to school when he should be home in bed.  One may not wish to miss school, but by staying home a day or two, we would not only get over our colds sooner, but there would be no danger of others getting it.

* * * * *


            With the Alpha play over and the Spartans about to present theirs, many of us are wondering what benefit a student receives from taking part in a play

            Of course such things are a means of raising money for needed equipment, but that does not come first.  The training a student gets in expression through movements of the hands and body as well as vocally is much more important.  He learns to overcome self-consciousness and stiffness.  Through taking part in a dramatic production some defects in speaking clearly are often corrected.

            Aside from the beneficial value, plays are fun.

* * * * *


            How different is our life today from that of our great grandfather’s.  Farmers did not use tractors, there were no automobiles, no electric lights and radios.  Man had not yetlearned much about controlling energy.  Work was done by hand or with the crudest of machines.

            It is only in the last twenty-five years that scientists have learned to know and to use such sources of energy as electricity and radio.

            What will the next twenty-five years bring?

            A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.

            Mystery surrounds the preparations for the Spartan play.  The entire stage set has under-gone a complete change.  Strange actions of the cast tend to excite much curiosity from the rest of the student body.

            A fairly large crowd attended the Alpha Omega play given Saturday evening October 26.  Saturday seems not as successful as Friday from the size of audience standpoint.

            Cupid seems to be hovering over N.H.S. again.  His new victims are L. P. and H. S.  The arrow he shot at our freshmens girl and junior boy, of an earlier issue, appears to have had lasting effects.

            Dorothy James has been secured to do the typing for the Nicholite.  She is a graduate of Brown’s Business College.

            The crunching of peanuts and crackling of paper didn’t prove very conducive to soothing the nerves of the Alpha play cast or the faculty.  Steps have been taken so it won’t happen again.

            Is our sophomore boy Charles Elder over putting on the class.  For instance, you should see the swell wrist watch he has been sporting around.  Even Mr. Bellamy noticed it, and asked the time.  Charles didn’t know, and our deceived instructor discovered upon further inspection that the watch was only a very good ink drawing.  Sophomores did you know we had an artist in our midst.

            Well, well we have a new light situated on the south-west corner of the gym building.  Our talented janitor Mr. Whitie Hillyer and Mr. Pucker Stephens installed it.

            The boys seem to be rushing basketball practice lately.  Whenever the gym isn’t being put to other use you can generally find a crowd of boys shooting baskets after school.  Keep up the good work boys – practice makes perfect.

            Last Friday morning the students of M.H.S. would have appreciated it had somebody suggested a slumber party.  What!  You don’t know why?  Oh, now you recall that the night before was Hallowe’en, and many of our high school students attended the mid-night show at Muscatine.

            This appears to be the season for carnivals.  Oct October 30 Atalissa held one, and Crawfordsville gave theirs November 1st.  The date of the Nichols school carnival is November 22.

            Pictures of the different school groups were taken several days ago.  Those pictures are to be shown on the screen the night of the carnival.

            Give me grass to live above worry to marshal the forces of my mind and spirit to face facts and be their master.

Tiny Tales of Tiny Tots

            The primary room was all dressed up for Hallowe’en.  Corn-stalk men were standing around the room and on the windows were pumpkins, black cats and owls.  Indian posters added to the spirit of the coming event.

            They had real jack-o-lanterns and are going to make paper-sack masks.

            Mrs. Daedlow and Mrs. Marine were visitors in this room last week.

            The second graders are making “Good Food” booklets.  They are hunting for the healthful foods in pictures for their booklets.

            A Hallowe’en party was held in this room Thursday afternoon.  Games were played and much enjoyed.

            The traveling library books are being enjoyed by this room.

            Joyce King, of the first grade, has the distinction of being the first to finish her scrap book.

            The merry-go-round is  erected and has had very little rest since its installation.  Before school at mornings and noons there is not an available space left on it.  It has the life of a railroad train, it cannot even rest on Sunday.

Intermediate  Courier

            There has been perfect attendance in this room the past two weeks.

            The arithmetic progress charts show improvement.  The fourth grade gained a point.  The fifth grade dropped a point, but is still above average.  The sixth grade is on 8 which is above average.

            A very interesting talk on Ethiopia was given by Ester Cozad Wednesday morning.  “Uncle Ray’s Corner” contributed some to te preparation.

            Some time is given over to rapid calculation on Friday afternoons.  All the grades in the room take part.

            A Hallowe’en Party was held in this room Thursday afternoon.  Visitors were Virginia Cozad and Jimmy Bellamy.

            Mrs. Marine and Mrs. Miller visited our room Monday morning.

Grammar Room Review

            This grammar room has completed Hallowe’en decorations and is making November posters about Thanksgiving.

            We have established a book report schedule for the entire school year.  We are to read nine books during the year.  Most of the students have completed their second book report.

            The seventh and eighth grades are working on Self-Testing Drills in arithmetic.  We are keeping a class progr4ss chart to show the average of each class.  So far the rating of both grades have been between eight and nine.  We are hoping before the year is over to get a rating of ten, which is the highest rating possible.

            The seventh grade is making relief maps in their reading class as a class project.  The best maps will be exhibited on the bulletin board

            Last Friday morning the grammar room listened from ten until ten-thirty o’clock to Walter Damrosch’s music hour.

            Mrs. R. A. Daedlow visited our room Monday afternoon.  We welcome visitors to our room at any time.

            We gave our Better English Room program on Thursday instead of Friday last week in order to celebrate Hallowe’en with a little party in conjunction with the Better English Club meeting.

Hallowe’en  Party

            A masquerade high school party was held at the gymnasium Thursday night.  L. B. Smith received the prize for the best costume being dressed as a fisherboy.  Ula Green placed second dressed as a clown.  Many others were dressed as people from other lands, old women, gypsies and anything you might expect to see at this sort of a party.

            A grand march was the first event of the evening followed by games which were word-games and a soap race won by Keith Vetter.  Dancing and fortune-telling also were enjoyed.  Miss Balzer, Ralph Borgstadt and Bernard Oostendorp furnished the music.

            At the close of the evening refreshments were served.

General Science Work

            Three unit tests have been taken this year by the General Science class.  These test books accompany the text.  Dorothy Dedrick ranks highest in this test with Norma Hummel second.

            Two labs have been completed so far.  These are dealt with the lessons on expansion and the Metric and English System of measurement.

            The class has also been performing some very interesting experiments.  A few of them included work with air pressure, expansion, siphons, compounds and mixtures.

            Norma Hummel has read the most library books this year.

            The traveling library books are enjoyed by all of the high school pupils.  In less than a half an hour after they were put in the library only here or four out of twenty-eight were left.

            Practical geometry, which the sophomores are now studying, can be seen every day no matter where we look.  If it is at the sky there is the sun, a circle.  At the school are pictures in shape of rectangles, squares and various other things.  Even the lass in your windows are examples of practical geometry.

            Many students as they enter theie sophomore year wonder of what value geometry is.  Our present land-measuring system came from the Babylonians about 2000 B.C. which was about the first use of geometry.

            Architects, engineers, painters, designers and others who create things make much use of this study.

            A Negro was telling his minister that he had “got religion.”

            “Dat’s fine, brothah; but is you sure you is going to lay aside sin?” asked the minister.

            “Yessuh.  Ah’s done it already.”

            :An’ is you gwine to pay up all yoh debts?”

            “Wat a minute, Pahson!  You ain’t talkin’ religion now – you is talkin’ business!”

            We’re all afraid for last Thursday was Hallowe’en.  We only hoped no one was scared severely, especially a few of the short people in school, for if they were scared out of seven years growth, well, they’d just be shorter still.  At any rate we had a high school party in the Gym.  I guess that kept some of us out of mischief.

            The pre-school boys and girls will also be shown.  Let’s come and see which ones will be our future Jackie Cooper and Shirley Temple.

            But let’s form our own opinion by coming and seeing them at the Jamboree.

Play Practise Chats

            Marion, the docile Junior, admitted that he was locked up in his room with a strange woman.  But he really had good intentions for he meant he was in his rom with the door locked against the woman, who was outside.  You know their all posts.

            At a recent Spartan play practice Jean, the girl who chews gum constantly and talks fast, got one of her speeches slightly mixed.  Instead of “Say, camel pretend you’re a desert well and dry up.”  She said, “Say desert pretend you’re a camel well, and dry up.”

            John paid so much attention to Jean’s speech that he said, “They will get the camel before long,” instead of “They will get the tiger before long.”

            Ula wasn’t to be left behind so instead of telling the cast a tiger was roaming around the country side she said around the neighbor side.  Imagine that.  I can’t.

            If beauty does as beauty is, the Nichols cage five should win every game they play.  The young Adonaises will be outfitted in new maroon and White univorms.

            There are eight, three piece suits consisting of a sweat jacket, playing jersey and playing pants.  The sweat jacket is maroon brushed wool, button front with the letter N on left front and the number on the right sleeve.  The playing jersey is of white raytex material with NICHOLS in maroon lettering across the front.  Directly beneath the lettering is a small numeral while a corresponding large numeral is on the back of the jersey.

            The pans will be of maroon jockey satin, white silk trimming down the sides and around the bottom.

            This is a fine schedule which introduces some variety over last year’s games by including Crawfordsville in the plce of St. Mathias of Muscatine, who have combined with St. Mary’s, also of that place to form an organization somewhat out of the class of the small school around.
