Cities and Towns - Chassell

Buildings, Commercial Buildings, Stores, Retail, Manners and Customs, Recreation, Sports, Human Settlements Chassell merchants have gone all out by decorating their windows to lend atmosphere to the old Worcester town. Here, the Chassell Mercantile Co. displays many Panther trophies. The window is a compliment to the work of Ed Helakoski and Wilmer Savela, the coach, who preceded Big Ed in masterminding the affairs of Chassell basketball squads. The school now has so many symbols of the court sport that they fill not only the little niche in the Community building, but also the stores of the town. The mercantile firm says, "The days specials are trophies, all Chassells, the greatest Class D basketball school in Michigan." [The display window of the hardware and dry goods store is filled with trophies and awards of the Chassell Panthers team.]
