The Student Council consists of the Student Body Officers and a representative from
every class and organization. It meets before every Student Body meeting to discuss plans
which are of interest to the Student Body. The plans are then presented to the rest of the
students by the representatives.
This group has been instrumental in standardizing the system of activity awards and
in making plans for the May Day Festival and the Annual Carnival.

With a new life ahead of us, fifty-four new Antelopes entered Adrian High to perform
to the best of their ability the tasks set before them. But now, when we are Seniors, we
have only twenty-three left. By those who have left we are represented in the armed
forces, war plants, and on farms.
Our first year we were initiated, and we'll never forget it. The class officers for our
Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years were:

As Freshmen we chose as our motto: "Forward Ever, Backward Never." Our class
colors were blue and gold.
Our Junior year we had our class play, which was, "Who Wouldn't Be Crazy?', It
was coached by our adviser, Mrs. Watts. It was a great success.
In our Junior year we entertained the Seniors at the annual Junior-Senior Prom. The
gym was decorated with a military theme consisting of red, white, and blue crepe paper
and airplanes overhead.
We have always had a prominent place in all sports and activities. We won the
Freshman-Sophomore Olympic Trophy both years. Some of our boys were chosen to be
on the all-star tournament team in their Senior year.

Senior Class Prophecy
It was a bright sunny day in June, 1955, as I took off the famous Adrian Airfield in my private plane,
"Antelope Annie." I was starting on one of my many around the world flights. Before I left I circled the
city a few times. My, how Adrian has changed since the days when I went to school there. Most of it was
due to that oil well that was struck while putting in the bird bath in the park back of the school house. Keith
Lane, the founder of this oil well, is now among the top millionaires of the United States. He and his Wife,
the former Esther Jensen, are living in a beautiful mansion situated on top of Rattlesnake Butte, overlook-
ing the Snake River Valley.
The city, now covering valleys and hillsides, has many interesting spots. One of the most interesting is
Thurman Piercy's "Car Shop,', where he manufactures plastic Fords.
I now leave the sights of Adrian behind me and start on my journey. My first stop was at New York,
while there I visited the Stork Club. To my surprise, whom should I see but Shirley Price, now the famous
Chorus Girl of the country. Leaving New York I flew over the Atlantic Ocean, across England, and landed
at Dover for refueling. As I stepped from the plane I heard bands playing and people cheering, and I
thought, "What a reception!" but I found out they were honoring Wilford Prosser, who had just broken the
world's record for swimming the English Channel.
Having heard so much about the fashions in Paris, I decided to stop and buy me a hat. Of course I chose
one designed by Anna Molt, now one of Paris's leading designers. She told me that Della Kygar and a certain
Ontario boy QPQ were now living in Switzerland. I arrived at their village only to find that they and their
children ftwins, by the wayj had moved to their cozy winter resort. The only possible way to reach them
was on skiis, so I left a note and headed for Greece. I got to Athens in time for the famous Olympics. Ken-
neth Elliot, a former high jumper from Adrian, was taking all the blue ribbons that were possible to get.
Ihad planned my route to take me over Africa. As I was enjoying the beautiful Sahara Desert, I had
some motor trouble and was forced to land. I was wondering what to do when I saw a camel approaching
me, and can you guess who was on it? None other than Robert Trussell. He took me to his oasis, where he
and his wife, the former Alice Mecham, ran a filling station. They fixed up my plane and gave me enough
gas to reach the Congo. From there I flew to Kimberly. It had always been my ambition to watch them
mine diamondsg in doing so I found Frank Davis, who had decided that that was the only way to get one
that would suit his girl.
The next stop was Delhi, India, where Mildred Higgins was busily engaged as a Snake Charmer. I flew on
to Korea in time to hear one of Carol Witty's services, as she was serving as a Missionary there.
I decided to take a trip over japan, and see how they had survived their defeat of the World War No. 2.
Stopping at Tokyo, I discovered Melvin Crocker planting onions on top of Tojo's grave. I then flew back
to China, and who should meet my plane but Verd Mitchell, a famous news correspondent for the Ching
Chow Gazette. I flew on to Borneo, not knowing the risk I was taking, as I found Dale Glenn there married
to a head hunter. It seems he met her while he was in the Navy Qby the way, he has now taken up the
tradej. I left there as quickly as possible, and headed for Australia. On my visit there I had the pleasure
of watching Lorina Witty copying the Kangaroo hop for a modern American dance step.
From Australia it wasn't a very long flight on to New Zealand, where Lois McGinnis was working as a
hair dresser for the natives. The style there being to take the kinks out instead of adding more curl.
Getting rather hungry, I stopped at Brazil to get me a cup of coffee. As I entered a cafe I saw Fay Price
running around the corner. I learned later that she was trapping skunks from which she was making her a
Arriving at Mexico I decided to pay Donnie Brewer and family a visit. His wife and kids were home,
but Donnie was gone. I found him down the street serenading a lovely Senorita. From Mexico I flew across
to the Hawaiian Islands. Everything was as beautiful as I had heard, including the Hula Dancers. My favo-
rite was Georgia Hillis, formerly of Adrian, Oregon.
Wanting to cool off a bit, I set out for Alaska. I could hardly find my way around, but finally did find
Marjorie Hite. She was setting up a school where she was teaching the Eskimos the American version of
kissing. From Alaska I headed homeward, but went out of my way to pay a visit to "Sing Sing." The only
person I knew there was Carroll Thomas, who was sentenced for impersonating Gildersleeve.
Deciding that I had seen enough sights for one trip I set out for Adrian. In case you have been wondering
about me, I am an old maid and have settled down to care for my cats and canaries.
This article I have just read was written many years ago. I dug it out the other day while looking
through some of my belongings and thought it quite interesting because it contained news about all of my
Senior classmates of 1945.
Oh, yes, I believe I forgot to mention that I stopped at the Old Folks' Home at Salem to talk a few
minutes with Mr. Attebery, our coach and class adviser of that year.

The 1944-45 year at Adrian High finds the Junior Class taking an active part in
school work and activities. We pride ourselves in our pep and all around interest.
Looking back down the trail of our three years in high school, we see in the distance
our Freshman year, when Colleen Connaughy was president. Then Bob Schweizer took over,
and this year Betty Wolfe has stepped into this position.
Our class colors are Green and Gold. Our flower is the pink carnation, and we have
selected "Don't try dying, Die trying" as our motto.
We are certain we can fill the space left by the outgoing Senior Class.

To lead us we have chosen Dick Stam as President, Lulabelle Wilson as Vice-President, Ilea Kreager as
Secretary-Treasurer, and Elaine Jones as Representative to the Student Council. To make it complete, Mrs.
Brumbach was chosen to keep a close watch on us. fRemember those 37 pep talks during our Roll-room
and class periods?Q
We feel we have had a very successful and happy year, with many activities and good times to remem-
ber. While there are still plenty of Sophomores left, we sincerely miss our classmates who have left. These
are: Naomi Shaw, Carol Tallman, Dorothy Ashcraft, Lorna Didericksen, Bethel Pettis, Lucille Doty, Hi-
roko Uno, Arlie West, Paul Hiari, Charles Shipley, Ted Langton, Lawrence Hawk, Elvin Boyce, and Glenn
During the year we contributed to Red Cross, gave S25 to the War Chest Drive, sold the most school
carnival tickets, thereby winning the Student Body contest, and tied with the Juniors for first place in
the Student Body ticket sales. Twice during the year we brought numerous packages and boxes of woolen
clothes for the Russian War Relief Drive.
However, we haven't spent our whole year in work. On February 28, we had our Sophomore party,
which we called "Cotton Capers," as the boys wore slacks and cotton shirts and the girls wore bright print
dresses. Nearly the entire class turned out for the evening's fun, and voted it a great success. Each boy
brought a pie and placed his name under the pie plate and the girls chose their supper partners by selecting
the pie they liked best. This was very hard to do, as there were fourteen great big delicious pies of all
varieties from which to choose. We spent the evening playing games, dancing, and singing the 27-verse
song Mrs. Brumbach composed about our class. flt was good, remember?j Twila Wolfe acted as our one-
girl orchestra, and she really earned all the pie she ate.
With two happy and busy years of our High School days now over, we are eagerly looking forward to our
days as upperclassmen.

On August 28, 1944, a new herd of Antelopes joined the larger herd at Adrian High
School. This new herd chose as their leaders Donnie Hatch, Presidentg Merlin Anderson,
Vice-Presidentg Betty Toomb, Secretary, Francis Thiel, Treasurerg and Ross Lane, Student
Council Representative. These leaders were to lead them through and help them establish
themselves among the larger and more experienced herd of Antelope.
The new fawns wandered off into many different activities. Two of our number won
letters in football and a number play in advanced or beginning band.
We started in the fall with a herd of twenty-nine, but now, near the end of the year,
We have lost all but twenty. We have plans for some class parties before we are through
with our first year.
We wish to thank Miss Larsson, our adviser, as she had quite a task before her when she
started out with the new herd of Antelope.

Crocker, Thurman Piercy, Verd Mitchell, Kenneth Elliot, Frank Davis, Carroll Thomas,
and Wilfortl Prosser. Next year's Antelope team will be built around the following
lettermen: Donald Elliot, Ivan lensen, Wilbur Jackson, Dean Ausman, Donald Hatch,
Glen Ausman, Leroy Mecham, Oscar Zamora, Richard Becbe, and Merton Parker.
At the end of the season the squad voted Melvin Crocker the outstanding player, and
selected him the honorary captain of the team.

Ontario vs. Adrian
The Ontario game was featured by good line play by the Antelopes for an early season game. Ontario
boasting a team of veterans, was pre game favorite, but their team lacked in this game the polish that
brought them their second consecutive Snake River Valley League flag. In the opening half neither team
showed to advantage offensively, but early in the third period Glaves, Tiger fullback, intercepted one of
Mitchell's passes and scampered 35 yards to score. Ontario failed to convert, and the score was 6-0. In the
final quarter Adrian's offense began to click and a variety of off tackle bucks and short passes netted three
first downs. With the ball on the thirty-yard line, Mitchell shot a pass to Brewer on the ten, and Brewer
ran untouched to score. Prosser converted with a perfect placement. Score 7-6, and there it remained.
Vale vs. Adrian
In the second conference game, the Antelopes met Vale's powerful Vikings. Outweighed but not out-
fought, our line did yoeman duty against Vale's seasoned club. The Vikings scored one touchdown in one,
two quarters and two touchdowns in the fourth. Conversions were made following each touchdown. Final
score, 28-0. The work of Hammock, Fisk, and Irwin was outstanding for Vale, while every Antelope
turned in a good game. Crocker and Piercy were outstanding in the line for Adrian.
With two games under their belts, the Antelope gridsters entered the Snake River Valley Jamboree at
Ontario. In the drawing Adrian drew Ontario, and in the ensuing ten minutes of play the Tigers dented the
Antelope goal and converted to win 7-0. A series of passes completed in the waning seconds placed Adrian in
scoring territory, but an interception nulliied the threat. Brewer and Piercy played stellar defensive ball.
Weiser vs. Adrian
Weiser came to Adrian on October 6 with a hard charging, aggressive squad. Though outweighed,
the Antelopes made a hotly contested game, but superior speed and weight paid dividends for the Wolver-
ines. Two touchdowns and a conversion were notched up in the second half to give Weiser the game 13-0.
Nyssa vs. Adrian
In the final game of the season the Antelopes traveled to Nyssa. Adrian ripped the Bulldog line to
shreds during the first half, and played practically the entire half in Nyssa territory. In the closing seconds
of this period a pass, Mitchell to Brewer, clicked for a score. Try for extra point failed. In the second half
the Antelopes found stiffer opposition from the Nyssa line. Intent on increasing their lead, they passed fre-
quently. Late in the final quarter a Nyssa back intercepted a flat pass and raced 30 yards to score. A suc-
cessful conversion gave Nyssa the ball game, 7-6. Nyssa narrowly missed scoring a second touchdown on a
pass interception in the final seconds of the game. The entire Antelope line played good ball, with Davis
doing outstanding work.

History of the Season
Adrian's basketball season began in early December, when a squad of twenty-one reported to Coach
Attebery. Of this group four returning lettermen formed the nucleus of the Antelope entry in Snake River
Valley League play. After two weeks of preliminary work the squad played their Hrst game on December
8. The following men made up the Antelope A Squad:

The Antelope squad played a total of twenty-six gimes during the regular season. They won eight and
lost 18. In Snake River Valley League play Adrian lost twelve and won four. Highlight of the Antelope sea-
son was hanging a double defeat on the Nyssa Bulldog quintet.
Following regular season play Adrian entered the Eastern Oregon B Tournament at North Powder. In
a preliminary round the Antelopes won handily from Imbler, 5 5 -35, dropped a photo-finish game to North
Powder in semi-finals, 27-24, and handily licked Wallowa 40-29 in a consolation game. Donnie Brewer and
Thurman Piercy were selected on the All-Tournament team, while Carroll Thomas received honorable men-
tion. Adrian received the Sportsmanship trophy for the second consecutive year.
The end of the season meant the final basketball in high school for the following men: Thurman Piercy,
Donnie Brewer, Melvin Crocker, Carroll Thomas, Verd Mitchell, Kenneth Elliot, and Keith Lane. Next
year's Antelopes will center around three returning lettermen and members of this year's B squad.
At the conclusion of the season, on February 27, the Mary and Martha Society sponsored a banquet for
the team. One hundred and fifty rabid basketball fans turned out to pay respects to the 1944-45 Antelope
team. The Howard Hatch trophy was awarded to Donnie Brewer, and Thurman Piercy was elected Honor-
ary Team Captain.

At the close of basketball, nine boys with pugilistic aspirations donned the leather mitts and spent their
afternoons cudgeling a punching bag, skipping rope, and taking laps around the gym. After this prepara-
tion they began trying their skill on each other. Bloody noses, broken thumbs, black eyes, all in the day's
Hours of preparation fitted six boys to enter their respective weights in the second annual Malheur
County Boxing Tournament held at Nyssa. Frank Davis showed up well in practice, but injuries kept him
from entering the tournament. Since only one man could enter each weight, elimination saw the following
enter the tournament:
Dean Wfoods, 105-112 lbs.q Norman Maucher, 118-125 lbs., Keith Lane, 125-135 lbs.g Wilbur jackson,
135-145 lbs.g Melvin Crocker, 145-155 lbs., Oscar Zamora, 155-165 lbs.
Wlieii the hnal gong had rung, ending the first night of boxing at Nyssa, Adrian had two fighters still
in the running. NWoods lost by a decision, as did Maucher. Lane took the count in the second round, and
Zamora was counted out with seconds to go in the third, after coming off the canvas repeatedly for more.
Jackson and Crocker, however, decisioned their men and won the right to enter the finals.
ln the Hnals jackson, in his first year of boxing, gave a good account of himself, and at the end of the
regular three rounds no decision could be reached, so an extra round was fought. Still no decision, so the
referee took the boys to their dressing rooms to come back later and fight one more round. ln this final
round still no decision, so a coin was tossed and Lowe of Nyssa won the title. Crocker won his hrst bout by
decision and won his second by a knockout.
Lowe of Nyssa was unable to enter the Hrst Annual S. R. V. C. Boxing Tournament due to illness, and
Adrian's entrants were jackson and Crocker. Both lost close decisions at Weiser, but did an able job of
representing Adrian in a sport which will have a larger following from now on.

The 1945 track season should show some outstanding individual performances because, in this sport, as
in boxing, you win by yourself or lose by yourself, there is no one else on whom to rely, hence through
gruelling sessions on the track and field.
Returning lettermen forming the nucleus of the Antelope track squad are Brewer, Nelson, K. Elliot, D.
Elliot, Zamora, and acksong the first three named havin won considerable recognition in :ist seasons for
S o P

P P , as l P P
pole vault, jackson, 880-yard run and relay, and Zamora in low hurdles and weights in field events. The
newcomers to the squad this year present possibilities in dash, hurdles, 220, field events, and distance runs.
The schedule of meets in which Adrian is to participate is as follows: Triangular meet between Adrian,
Nyssa, and Vale on the local track and field April 4, April 18, Malheur County meet at Ontariog Snake
River Vallev Conference meet at Weiser, April 255 with the District Meet at LaGrande May 5.
All who win the right to enter the State Meet will go to Corvallis, the site of Oregon State College, to
participate. The meet has formerly been held at Oregon University.

The year I944-45 has been a long-to-be-remembered one in Girls' League, with all the girls of the school sharing in a full
schedule of activities under the leadership of Mildred Higgins, our President, Delora Hurst, Vice-Presidentg Betty Wolfe, Sec-
retary, Myra Case, Treasurer, and Mrs. Brumbach, Adviser.
We chose as our special project for the year the remodeling of the old band room into a rezt and recreation room for girls.
The Junior-Senior Home Ec. girls, under the direction of Miss Larsson, and with the assistance of Mr. Bunch and the shop
boys, have supervised the furnishing and decoration of this room, while the Girls' League has provided the funds.
On January Y, sixty girls enjoyed a "Kid Party"--games, dancing, and a bounteous pot-luck supper made the occasion a gay
one. Costume prizes were won by Selma Stam., Nadeen Wilson, and Bernice Chaney. Fourteen dollars were added to our
treasury by this event.
On March 16, we sponsored a matinee dance which brought in over five dollars. Mr. Stone and the orchestra furnished the
music. The punch table was in charge of Anna Molt and Esther Jensen. We hope to have more of these all-school mixers.
ln the fall the Senior girls gave a get-acquainted mixer for the "Little Sisters" of the Freshman class. Games, dancing, and
singing furnished the entertainment, after which refreshments of cocoa and cookies were served. On March 2, the Freshman
girls with the assistance of their adviser, Miss Larsson, returned the courtesy with a delightfully arranged "Spring Fever" party.
For this, the Freshmen made lufcious cookies and punch in their Home Ee. class, and presented each Senior girl with a hand-made
The program committee, Delora Hurst, Chairman, Shirley Price, Beth Chapin, llea Kreager, and Ardis Hurst, chose "Gate-
ways" as our theme for the year, and all of our speakers have used topics relative to this. Mr. Bunch and the shop boys built a
gateway, which we painted and now use on the stage for our programs. Mrs. Brumbach composed a theme song, "Gateways,"
which we sing to the tune of "Good-Night Sweetheart" at all of our meetings. Betty Toomb is our Club pianist.
Among our speakers this year have been Mrs. Lillian Van Loan of Portland, Mrs. Katherine Claypool and Mrs. Edna Ferris,
R.N. of Vale, Mrs. Mabel Coddington of Caldwell, Miss Ellie Ellen Council, and Miss Mildred Van Slyke of Nyssa. Following the
program on "Teaching as a Gateway," a Teaching Hobby Club was formed with Colleen Connaughy as Chairman, and this group
has had several special meetings. Among them was one led by Dan Poling of the State Department of Education, and another
luncheon-meeting at which Mrs. Coddington was honor guest. This latter aHair was held in the library with Home Ec. classes
under Miss Larsson's direction furnishing a delicious luncheon and Ellen Judd presiding as a gracious toastmistress. The tables
were decorated in red and white, and place-card favors of little red school houses were made by Marjorie Hite, Nadeen and
Forestine Wfilson. This hobby group hopes later to become a part of the National Future Teachers of America.
After the visit of Mrs. Ferris, a Nursing Hobby Group was formed, with Anna Molt and Bernice Chaney in charge.
The Mother-Daughter Tea, on May S, will feature the theme, "Gateways," and the Junior girls will present a "Flower Waltz"
in honor of the Senior girls, who will march through the gateway symbolic of their entrance into life.

Future Farmers of America
Donnie Brewer Pete Tirnmerman Wilford Prosser
Keith Lane Richard Beebe
The Adrian Chapter of the Future Farmers of America was inactive during most of
the school year 1944-45, due to the inability of the high school district to secure a satis-
factory agricultural instructor in the fall. The department was closed until May 1, 1945.
Two or three business meetings of the chapter were called by Ralph Morgan, Assistant
State Vocational Agricultural Supervisor.
On May 1, 1945, Mr. Henry Reuter, recently employed as agricultural instructor for
the Adrian Chapter, arrived to take up his duties. A lively reorganization meeting was held
and plans made and committees appointed for next year's F. F. A. program.
Olhcers of the inactive Adrian F. F. A. chapter are Donnie Brewer, Presidentg Pete
Timmerman, Vice-President, Wilford Prosser, Secretary, Keith Lane, Treasurer, and
Richard Beebe, Reporter.
TESTS What color is a bride? Wed
I study all night, What color is a shampoo? Dreen
Then study some more- What color is a ghost? Boo
What good does it do me- What color is a guitar string? Plin
Nothing better than a four! What color is a belch? Burplc.
Tests give me a headache
And that's not all-
They make me so weak,
I can't walk down the hall.
I'm allergic to tests,
That's one thing I know-
The harder I study,
The dumber I grow!
