This year we have enjoyed several fine improvements in our school. A new
intra-mural and gym program was provided, with equipment for many types of
games. A house to be used by Home Economics students was purchased. New
lire escapes Were built, and shrubbery was planted in front of the school.
For all of these we are indebted to our school board. We take this opportunity
to thank them on behalf of the Whole student body.

Three years ago the present Senior Class entered the Adrian Senior High School.
We chose Mr. Whitney as our class adviser, Treva Every as our president the
'first year, and Carl Nelson as our president during our junior and senior years.
Now we have come to the last and most important of these High School years.
We Wish to thank Mr. Whitney, and also Carl Nelson, for the time and effort
they have expended to make our class a successful one.
Soon we will part, each going his own Way. We hope, though, that everyone
Will remember the three happy years we have spent together and the classmates
Who have made these years What they have been. It is our wish that each and
every member of our class will do his best in Whatever Work he may pursue, and
so bring honor to the Adrian Senior High School, and to the class of 1938.

The annual Senior High School play, this year HNothing But The Truth", was
presented by selected members of the Senior Class Thursday evening, March 3,
in the High School auditorium.
Bob Bennett, a young business man, bets his business colleagues ten thousand
dollars that he can tell the absolute truth for twenty-four hours. The comedy
is centered around this bet. After many amusing complications the plot reaches
a satisfactory conclusion with the winning of the bet.
Thanks to the excellent direction of Miss Breese, and to the fine cooperation of
the cast and various committees, the play proved a great success, and one of the
best in years.

JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS
The Junior Class of l938 has been prominent in every school activity, Perhaps
a great deal of credit for this should be given to its capable class oH'icers.
This class Was Well represented in the various sports with J. Rodgers, Perkins,
Morton, Simmons, Daniels, and Buckingham receiving their letters. Our cheer-
leaders, Mary Alice Kirchner, Phylis Munger, Walt Scharer, and Bob Freligh,
were all members of this class.
Juniors took part in the orchestra, and band, in Vocal Music, in the Future
Farmers' Association, and in the Student Council, several members of the
Maple Leaf staff Were Juniors.
Noting the success this class has had during the past year, We feel sure that it
Will make a splendid Senior Class.
FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS
Although the Freshmen have been in the high school only a year, they have be-
come very well acquainted with the members of the other classes. A large numberg
of them attended the Freshman reception: new friendships, begun there, have
continued through the year.
This class has formed a basketball squad of its own: the team has been very
successful, so far, and we expect it to provide valuable material for the school
team in a year or two. Also, several freshmen made good on the tennis team.
The experience of several freshmen in the student council, in the band and the
orchestra, should prove helpful in these activities in the next few years.
AND MR. HAZEN
This year the Council has been under the able guidance of James Fridd as presi-
dent, Robert Freligh as vice-president, and Virginia Wonder as secretary, with
Mr. Whitney as the council advisor.
The group has accomplished many things. lt conducted pep meetings and
arranged for different departments in the school to give assemblies showing the
work of these departments. lt arranged for the re-seating of the home rooms in
the assembly, for the second semester.
The council revived the old tradition of having an all-school banquet. At this
banquet various awards were given. Each organization added something to the
program. ln addition, speeches were given by Superintendent Reed, the class
presidents, and several outstanding athletes.
One of the biggest tasks the Council undertook was the writing of a constitution.
This has taken a great deal of study and thought,
Marshall High School extended an invitation to the Adrian council to attend
a meeting of several different councils. A number of our members accepted the
invitation and came back with many new and helpful suggestions,
Our council is to be complimented on its efficient and active work. lt wishes to
express the realization that without the splendid cooperation of the student
body, however, it could not possibly succeed.
THE MAPLE LEAF STAFF
In l933 it was felt that Adrian High School was large enough to support a
school paper, At that time an opportunity was given for any Senior High School
pupil to suggest a name for the newspaper. From a number of names turned in,
"The Maple Leaf," suggested by Dorothy Wonder, was accepted, This has a
double meaning - Maple Leaf from the maple trees for which Adrian is noted,
and leaf as a page of a book or paper.
Every year but one since 1933, the Maple Leaf has been entered in the critical
judging contest of Quill and Scroll, the International Honorary Society for high
school journalists. The Maple Leaf has received a second international award
each time until 1936-1937 when it was given a first international award.
This year the paper has been published with Waldron Stewart as editor-in-chief
for the Hrst semester and Marlyn Rising for the second semester, with Miss
Armstrong as the adviser. There have been fifteen 'issues of the Maple Leaf this
year, one appearing once every two weeks.
Although a gossip column has been a feature of the paper for some time, a new
name - "The Maple Leaf Monkey" - was adopted this year for the column
which has made many a lad and lass get pink behind the ears. The picture for the
cut of the monkey was made by Bob Barricklow.
At this time we wish to express our appreciation to the business men of Adrian
who, through their generous co-operation in advertising, have made it possible
for the Maple Leaf to meet its financial obligations.
It has been the aim of the Maple Leaf Staff not only to print news but keep a
fair and impartial record of all school activities. We feel that the Maple Leaf has
attained its goal of this year, and we are proud of the splendid record of our
The Orchestra included several types of activity in its year, among which were the study of fine
music literature, pleasurable playing, public performance, and accompanying.
In addition to the analytic study of music, the class presented several public concerts, appeared
twice on the Council of Churches Winter series, played on assembly programs, and accompanied
the school operetta, "Pirates of Penzance."
The year's Work was crowned by the recognition which the orchestra received at the State Mus-ic
Festival-the rating of "superior."
The Band played a prominent part in school and community activities during the year. For
example, the group contributed to the life of pep meetings, added spirit to the athletic contests,
entertained at assembly programs, presented public concerts, and assisted various civic groups.
A great deal of emphasis was laid on Hnished ensemble performances. The Band's achievement
along this line was indicated when judges at the State Music Festival acclaimed the group
A nurnber of members received Band letters in recognition of progress made on their instruments,
and of their service to the school.
The subject debated this year was, "Resolved: that the several states should adopt a form of
unicameral legislature." We had two teams which upheld this topic in the Twin Valley Speech
League, of which we are a member.
Our teams tied with Albion for third place in the debates.
ln addition to the members of the first teams, there were a number of other pupils, who had the
opportunity to debate in practice.
Our Forensic League is one of the five hundred chapters of this organization in the United States,
and of the four in Michigan. To be eligible for membership in the League, one must have earned
sixteen points through oratory, declamation, or debate.
Our chapter consists of ten members, with David Dickenson as president, and Betty Acker as
Secretary and Treasurer. It meets every two weeks in the homes of its members.
One of its main projects for this-vear has been the sponsoring of practice debates throughout the
FUTURE FARMERS' ASSOCIATION
The F. F. A. has held regular meetings every two weeks throughout the year.
The oH5cers for this year have been Bob Bower, presidentg Charles Earles, vice-
presidentg Walter Koch, treasurer: Bob Dennis, secretary, and Clarence Muck,
reporter. During the year eighteen green hands Cnew membersj have been ac-
cepted into the club.
One of the projects which the boys take up is caring for the orchard in back
of Garfield school. At the end of each year the boys elect from the club the one
who has contributed the most to the club. Bob Dennis has had this honor be-
stowed upon him this year.
All of the F. F. A. boys in Lenawee County gathered in one huge convention
on April 21. This is of unusual significance, because it is the Hrst annual con-
vention of the F. F. A. to be held.
Three boys, Morris Potts, Richard Meyers, and Rudy Boss, have qualiiied for
the county Farmers' Degree, for this year. To receive this degree, one must come
up to a number of rigid requirements.
CAST OF "THE PIRATES OF PENZANCEH
This year the high school revived a custom which has not been followed for
several years - the custom of presenting an operetta. "The Pirates of Penzance"
was the operetta chosen: on March 24th and 25th it was presented, under the
very able direction of Mr. Nelson, who was one of our new teachers this year.

The operetta tells the story of a boy, Frederick, who while very young was
supposed to have been apprenticed to a pilot until his twenty-first birthday. By
some mistake he was apprenticed to a group of pirates. When he fell in love with
Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, he of course wanted to leave the
pirates, as he was then twenty-one years old. But the pirates proved by papers
that he was to be bound until his twenty-first birthday, Since he was born on
the twenty-fourth of April, he had not reached his twenty-first birthday, How-
ever, the pirates were overpowered by the police, and couldn't carry out their
intentions. When they confessed that they were English noblemen, the pirates
were released, and Frederick was then free to marry Mabel.
Our French Club is a chapter of an international society, called La Societe
Internationale. Our chapter holds meetings every four Weeks.
To be eligible for membership in the French Club, a student must have
one year of French, and must maintain a "B" average.
The object of the French Club is to get French students together for an
able and educational time. Programs at meetings consist of French songs
reports, and games requiring the speaking of French.

We began this season with veterans such as Sherman, Miller, Laudenslager,
Henry, Prentice, and Hunt, back to play.
The first game was played with Bryan, Ohio, at night. The Maple Leafs met
a well-drilled team that scored easily in the first half. In the second half Adrian
showed great improvement, but the final score was Adrian 0, Bryan 20.
In the second game, with Marshall at Adrian, we lost, the score being 20-6. The
next week we met Sturgis, and were smothered under a brilliant passing attack
28-0. In the third Twin Valley game we played at Albion. Under the lights
we held a strong Albion eleven to a 6-0 score.
Our next opponents were Hillsdale's team, which defeated us 7-0. In the Hnal
Twin Valley League game we lost a hard-fought game to Coldwater 13-12. In
the seventh game of the season we won over the Blissfield team 32-0. Inspired
by this victory we Went to Monroe, only to lose, with the score 35-6.
However, the season was good for the placing of Dick Sherman on the all-state
second team, and for the honorable mention given to Stewart, Butler, Rodgers,
Henry, Morton and Prentice.
Fits! Row: Co-captain Rink, Barriclclow, co-captain King, Henry, Buckingham. Second Row: Coach
Hayden, Rodgers, Cook, Shultz, Prentice, Sherman, manager Perkins.
The basketball team this year had an uneven season, winning seven out of fifteen
games. The team won two games from Sturgis and Lakeview, and one game
from Hillsdale, while it lost two apiece to Albion, Coldwater, and Marshall,
and one to Hillsdale. Outside of the Twin Valley League, the boys won one
game from Lyons, and the regional championship from Blissfield. They lost out
in the district tournament to Fenton.
Several of the Twin Valley League games were very close. Of the seven League
games the boys lost, four were dropped by not more than two points.
Like the football team, many of the basketball team were given honors. Herb
Rink was fifth in the Twin Valley League scoring, and was placed on the
conference first team. Bill King, because of his fine defensive work at guard, was
placed on the conference second team. Jack Henry was given honorable mention.
Barricklow, Buckingham, Rodgers, Cook, Sherman, Shultz, and Prentice, also
all saw service during the year.
A second team coached by Mr. Lunn and composed of Nearhood, Millard, Gem-
ple, Gene Rodgers and Sywassink, won seven of their fourteen games.

The Sickle Staff this year was composed of Robert Prentice, editor, and Betty
Smith, Carl Nelson, Virginia Wonder, Dorothy Matthes, Eunice Pratt, and
Janis Walden as helpers.
Several others gave valuable help, also, in the work of the Sickle. Among these
were Robert Notes, who did the art work on the dedication page. The second
hour business organization class, under the direction of Mr. Abdon, carried out
an extensive sales campaign among the townspeople. The posters made by Miss
Hutchins' art classes contributed very much to the success of this campaign.
Lyle Sherman headed the project, in which Florence Crane and Betty Smith sold
the greatest number of Sickles.
The staff Wishes to thank all the members of the class for their fine Work.
WE congratulate the Senior Class on
their completion of their I-Iigh School
course. They have laid a good foun-
dation on which to build a happy and
successful career, and it is our Wish
that their ambitions may he realized
