HISTORY OF THE TRIBE OF 1925 Note How They Have Distanced All Competitors Lo, the purple shadows and the crimson twilight fades away. All is dim darkness. All is still. But behold, the faint glimmer of light for a candle still burns. Hear the soft scratching of the quill pen as it glides smoothly across the white pages. The great Mudjekewis, magician, records with the hand of time the history of the Kabeyuns tribe of 1925. In the year 19,)1, the Wabasso, (Joe Swaboda) played full back on. Shuh-shuh-gah team. In many bloody battles he helped hold aloft the Orange and Black and brought home the WVampum belt of victory. In the same year the demure little maid Miskodeed, (Evelyn Elliott) became one of the Soongetaho (Basketball) players. Miskodeed played hard and aided in gaining the victory from the Wo-Wa (Peshtigo) and 'renodizze (Suring). Kenneth Mmnsert and Norman Tracy (Chetowaik and Chibiabos) played in the orchestra of the Shuh-shuh-gah. The next year 192? Chetowaik continued to play in the Badger Five, while Chibiobas still produced soft vibrations from his clarinet in the orchestra. The maiden (t1heezes(I Dorothy Meyer) became pianist for the Badger Five. In 1921-22 numerous maids and braves from the Kabeyum tribe joined the Glee Club and appeared in the Opperretta. Many of the maideni were active memhe'rs of the Girl Scouts (Peboon) in 1922-23. During these years the youths began to consider themselves braves and sought out their Nenenimoshos (sweet hearts) from the Kebeyum tribe. In this year Oweenee (Margaret Goggins) became a member of the Booster Club. This year more members of the Kabeyum tribe was added to the club. They were Kayoshk (Beatrice Wilson) and Kivashid (Andy = Caldie). In the following year Segwun (Lucille Belanger) became a guard on the Shuh-shuh-gah's girls' basketball team. She displayed great genius as a player and certainly did her share in gaining the victory. Showgashee, better known as Clarence Coopman made the basketball team in this same year. Nohma, (Marvin Sampson) Chibiobas (Norman Tracy) Mishe-Makwvo also played on the team. In Football we again find Showgashee (C. Coopman) and Asseo (Ray- mond Meyer) on the team. In football as well as other athletic activities the Kabeyums made a wonderful showing. So throughout the three years of High School the Kabeyum trib, has aided, boosted and boasted for every activity in school. May the Scripture of Midje!keewis next year show more honor and wisdom for the Kabevum. No doubt they will for the Kabeyum's motto is like this: Esa-Kabeyum (We are the braves).
