GOODWIN FOR THE CONTRIBUTIONS WHICH HE MADE TO THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM "Tiff MARCH 0 711145 " APRIL 23, 1869 At the dedication of the new Cen- tral Building on this date, the Hon. C. M, Croswell said, "Adrian has, all things considered, the noblest school building in the West." With the new high school came the crea- tion of the offices of superintendent and principal. NOVEMBER 11, 1908 The annual meeting in 1906 made provision for the erection of "an additional, modern school build- ing." Two years later, after the dedication, the annual report read, "The school year has been emin- ently successful in educational re- sults, and the graduating class of forty-five with excellent standing is evidence of the growing popularity of our school management, and is a fine testimonial to the superintend- ent and the teachers." SEPTEMBER, 1939 The Frank Street building with one of the finest pools, gymnasiums and music rooms in any school in the state was ready in September, 1939. Today, after seventy-two years, Adrian High School remains one of the finest school systems in the state. We are proud to have been cz part of her history. 7941 gig .flflflf I To SARAH E.

Achievements of the class were emphasized in the class roll, the will, the prophecy, and like senior activities. Today there is a democratic tendency to forget class barriers and to record a review of the school as a whole. The obiect of the Sickle staff of 1941 has been to produce an annual that will give all students attending school this year a means of cherishing the rich memories of their school life. Under the able guidance of the editor, Jean Gaskell, her assistant editor Ruth Gregg, and our ever watchful business manager, Paul Meech, a co-operative staff has handled the task of planning, publishing, and financing the '41 "Sickle." They may well be proud of their work, for they have proved themselves a capable and responsible group. 941 .VNIFF 1 SENIOR 1 I I 'W f lif t ! Us SICKZ6 1941 "SATURDAY if Cf! ZDR N" OFFICERS President-Ruth Gregg Vice-president-Dallas Beauchamp Secretary-Marie Bell Adviser-Miss Breese Three years ago, two hundred-forty freshmen entered Adrian Senior High School. We elected Ruth Gregg as our president, an office she also held as a iunior and a senior. As juniors we gave the seniors one of the most beautiful and outstanding Send-Offs in many years. To our theme song, "Stardust," seniors, iuniors, freshmen, and alumni danced a fond farewell to a class we genuinely admired. To Miss Mautino, our adviser, went much praise and credit for the success of the undertaking. Soon we are going to leave Adrian Senior High School and start our lessons in the school of life. May we remember all the happy years spent together and all the class- mates who have made these years so dear to all of us. May we "Learn to live, and live to learn." Daniels, Whelan Kessler, Borradaile Gregg, Bell, Gaskell "AC'R0 S Tflf F007ll6ff75" The best device of all, according to BOB ALDRICH is the dance. FRANKLIN BAILEY disagrees and says football, while MILDRED ANDERSON and RUTH BAILY choose the soft, sweet music of the violin . . . MARIE BELL'S skill with the pen and pencil in her drawings in the SICKLE is as re- nowned as EDNA BlERLElN'S is with the typewriter. The cover design of the '41 SICKLE was chosen from a sketch made by GEORGIANNA ROOT . . . JOHN WHELAN has made quite a stir as the gal- lant master of ceremonies at pep meetings and by his long range shots on the basketball floor. At the basketball season, long, lean, and lanky MIKE HOBEN was elected honorary captain of this year's team, and MERLE DANIELS was an able football captain chosen by the team last year. Outstanding sportsmen this year have been HENRY PHIPPS, football, SAM KING, basketball, and RALPH WALDEN, swimming. To cheer the players on to victory in football and basketball contests, TEDDY NICOLAI, JEAN JAMES, and DORIS NICK- LOY, as cheerleaders, have given their services most willingly . . . Our president, RUTH GREGG, has led us through three happy years in A. H. S. Our publication, the MAPLE LEAF, has been edited this year by MARY LOU LUTZ and LANDIS STEW- ART, and JEAN GASKELL has done an excellent iob as editor of the SICKLE, don't you agree? PAUL MEECH has proved himself valuable, also, as business manager of the SICKLE . . . HELEN LOUISE SCHMIDT made a charming "Nancy" in the play, "The Youngest," and LAWRENCE PATE was very successful as her leading man. Lending his deep voice and stern manner, HAROLD BLACK very appropriately portrayed "Oliver," JEAN WELSH and ELAINE THIELAN were highly ap- plauded in their respective parts. The oratorical voice of HERBERT BROWN can be heard from the speech room, while ELSIE RlCKERD'S voice sounds from our music room . . . We are proud of the scholastic standing of our valedictorian, ELEANOR MATTESON, of our salutatorian, MARJORIE BOR- RADAILE . . . HOWELL POUCHER has distinguished himself as an all-round boy in academics, art work, and athletics, and peppy JEAN VAN SCHAICK is noted for her all-round qualities. RUSSELL GITTUS was praised for his presentation speech to ourMon- roe Queen, CANDACE HALL, who has distinguished herself in other activities. DON GOODWIN was a charming young girl from Monroe during the Mon- roe game assembly . . . A vivacious YVETTE was played by GARNET HOLDEN in the program at the All School Banquet. HELEN KESSLER was a neat, good-looking secretary in the Biology pres- entation of a draft board. We enjoyed the orig- inality of the skits of RUTH FOSTER and BETSY HANCOCK when they advertised the coming is- sues of the MAPLE LEAF. All in all, I think our Seniors make a fine lot, don't you? ca.

Many of the students of Adrian High School do not know or remember this boy, but he has given us an example of strength and courage from which we all can profit. In 1936, when Austin Weiss was a senior, he met with a very unfortunate accident. While diving at Sutton River, he slipped and broke his back. For many months, he lay with his neck in a cast. After he regained his health, he returned to school, but the effort was too much for him, and he was forced to quit. Each year he tried, and this year it was decided that he finish his work at home. He has now completed his education, and is graduating with the class of 1941. Austin is very much interested in Mechanical Drawing and after his graduation, he plans to become an architect. The members of the class wish Austin all the luck, success and happiness in the world. Yes, Misrcn jcmolz.. . QQ, F e NSR Z0 Q, Q I wi' JQX4 ' .fm A' ' is 22? fx., ,Q4 V' Q 1 is if '-A ,.. g. I 2 . JUNIOR OFFICERS President-Harvey Kapnick Vice-president-Bob Sowers Secretary-Bob Pierce Adviser-Miss Mautino "S7!lR.S' 0 70111016 0W" The Junior Class of 1941 has participated in every school activity. The orchestra and band had their share of iuniors, as did the Future Farmers, Stu- dent Council, language clubs, and vocal music groups. Some members of the Maple Leaf were juniors, too. ln all activities, the junior class has proved itself well able to carry on in key positions after this year's seniors are graduated. At the beginning of this year we elected an all- male group of class officers. As the "Sickle" goes to press, many of our group have been named to the 1942 Sickle staff. Others will move into im- portant spots on the Maple Leaf. We are proud of our record as a class. We hope that our Send-Off will be a memorable achieve- ment as well as an honest expression of our re- luctance to see this year's senior class graduate. When we, ourselves, take on the senior roll, may we play the part as nobly as they have played it. -By Gloria Kishpaugh l t l 'fl N -...L 1 if 3 ,wa 1 Cook Kishpaugh Nyers Kapnick Briggs Matthes Foote Wood 'VICRO 5' Tiff I-'007ll6fl75" HARVEY KAPNICK. There's no use arguing with him, for he's a fiery debater. The Junior class de- cided they were "off" girls forever and elected all male class officers with Harvey at the head. EDYTHE SHAFFER is that blonde council member who's everybody's friend. Sports rate tops with her, especially basketball. She's also in the Latin Club. BOB PIERCE is another football hero. He's a bas- ketball player, too. Bob was elected on the all-male ticket as secretary ofthe class. PATSY STARK surely has a name that fits her- short and snappy-short in height and snapping eyes. She'Il probably turn out to be an actress, for she likes drama and public speaking. Remember her in "Sadie Hawkins" and the Hawaiian floor show? DEE DIBBLE is the fellow who can make you laugh just by cracking a joke in that drawl of his. He'II really make you iive when he swings out with his cornet. BILL STREU is the Gene Autry of our class. He's in A Capella Choir and the Boy's Ensemble, and is talented in swimming and diving. Trust him to liven up a party. BOB SOWERS is the iunior class vice-president. Photography is his hobby, and he intends to make it his Iife's work. At any school event, you'll see Bob and his camera. Bob took many of the "Sickle" shots this year and is to do more of them again next year. CHARLOTTE WOOD's main interest is singing, and well it might be! She, too, is in A Capella Choir, and has sung in almost every vocal music event of the school. She carried one of the lead parts in the Christmas cantata. PHYLLIS JURDEN is another swimmer. Besides swimming, she likes to dance, play tennis and work chemistry problems. l?l All in all, Phil likes a good time. Her fellow maiorettes, DOT GILBERT and MARIE SCHOLTEN should also receive honor- able mention. Did you see their special antics at the Monroe game this year? And while we are on the subiect of sports, don't forget THE WESTFALL TWINS, Arlene and Eileen. They're loads of fun. If one isn't clowning, the other is sure to begin. They've been cheerleading this year. GLORIA KISHPAUGH is one of the most depend- able of the juniors. Because of this quality she won the position of "Sickle" editor for 1942. Academ- ically, she is one of our star typists. Her sweet dis- position has made her one of the most popular girls in the class. She has dimples, too. JOANNE FOOTE has been a very active council member. The monitor system has been run under her efficient control. On Maple Leaf she has done a noble piece of work. As vice-president, she has been an important member of Latin Club. JERRY PAGE made a name for himself in football this year. He is a quiet, unassuming lad, but watch his record grow. Academically, he rates high, and he is a Latin Club member.

They are to be complimented on their willingness to take an active part in school affairs from the first week of their arrival to the present moment. Many of them have held responsible positions in Student Council, and they have shown that they can work-and work well. Starting with the Freshman Party early in the year, they have shown a desire to mingle with the upper class- men, and to be found in the "middle of the swim." Clubs have felt their eager contributions, and all sports events have been made better by their help. They are hard at work making plans for the greeting of the freshmen of the class of '42. Never fear that they won't carry their share of this high school load. 'VICRO .S' Tflf f007ll6ff7.S"' DICK BRAUN made the varsity basketball team this year and did a commendable piece of work. Dick, aside from being active in all sports, is in- terested in music. You might mistake Dick for a senior, for he tips the scales at 210. J. B. WILSON, that lad with the dark curly hair and a sparkling voice, is our modern Patrick Henry. He has a grand personality plus. J. B. has had his share of announcing P.A. messages for the council, as well as acting as master of ceremonies for a school party or two. Watch this lad! KATHLEEN BELL-"Katie" to her friends-is an all- round girl. She likes sports and is a very good student to boot. She and her smile are insepa- rable! ROLAND SMITH-Swish! Did you ever see him when he wasn't in a hurry? And those twinkling eyes certainly suggest mischief brewing. Roland hails from Battle Creek. Their loss is our gain! MARGARET CHRISTMAS is the quiet type, but there's something about her-She's a regular mer- maid in the water and how she can dive! That's probably how she got that nice even tan. JANE CAROL BRATZ is another girl who doesn't confine her interests to one special field. She is interested in swimming and dancing and is a mem- ber of the A Capella Choir, but when it comes to settling down for a Iife's work, she wants to be- come an artist. VAN PECK is the all-round boy. He's no flop on the gridiron, but wait until you see him glide over the basketball floor. Van is president of the fresh- man class and a born leader. JACK COLBATH is a musical gent. He plays in the band, and he and his clarinet are always present at basketball games. He is a member of the Latin Club, and as a member of the Student Council, he has served on a number of important committees. MARILYN ANDRUS likes to check the tires before going riding in Pierce's car. She's quite a musi- cian, besides. She plays alto clarinet in the band, and her piano playing is sort of a hobby with her. BARBARA TUTTLE-Her striking black hair catches everyone's eye, as you can see by the host of friends she has. Last year, Barbara organized a band among her school friends, so don't be sur- prised if you see a sign some day in the future which reads, "Barbara Tuttle and Her Band! One Night Only." NATALIE BAGROW came here from Wisconsin in the ninth grade and has made a lot of friends in two short years. She is an excellent student and takes an active part in forensics. LOIS HATT is the friendly, versatile girl you'lI often spy playing the piano. Always dependable and cheerful, she is popular with her classmates. She has contributed much to the Latin Club group. ED BAILEY--our lawyer-to-be. Everyone will long remember Ed's ability for declamation, but longer still his polite, unassuming, pleasant smile, all- round ability, and his cleverly coined Latin phrases. JIMMY PAGE. Pep, personality plus, humor-these spell Page and personality. Besides being an honor student, Jim belongs to the Latin Club and takes an active part in all sports.

Semi-circular in shape and bounded on three sides with huge modern glass windows, its bright, cheerful atmos- phere is conducive to music and merry-making. Directly off of the room itself are many practice rooms, the dry- ing and storage rooms for band equipment, and the music department offices. With such equipment, back- ground and encouragement, as well as the splendid train- ing received from the music staff, it is little wonder that Adrian High students carry off state honors in music. On the second floor, one of our show rooms is the L- shaped room where Miss Hutchin's art classes turn out work of unusual caliber. Pos- ters, place cards, banquet and school party decorations, topped off with a splendid art exhibit in the spring-these are some of the contributions of this busy department. One of the new features is the enclosed ticket booth on the left as one enters the Frank Street entrance. Double stair- ways give easy access to the new gymnasium. From top to toe, our new building is as modern as a streamlined train. What op- portunities Adrian offers her school students! ORGANIZATIONS W llllllllt l ll -fa. aiu-,E .3 .iu "Wi, NIE Pf0Plf" The Student Council has done o commendable job this year. Early in the fall it sponsored, along with pep meetings and school parties, the Monroe Game parade and coronation. Later it put the monitor system into effect. One of its finest pieces of work was the publishing of a new student handbook which was used both in junior and in senior high school.

A. A. to G. A. A. Led by Miss Pety, they have worked to establish the ideal of sports for sports' sake. Under the new plan, the girls no longer work for letters. Their theory is that the enjoyment and the proficiency in the sport are enough rewards. In place of letters they have adopted pins signifying membership. Varsity Club has taken an active part in the sports program since its founding two years ago. These boys try to bring one noted sportsman to Adrian for a lecture each year. They have given their support to such school proiects as the printing of the sports programs, the management of tournaments, and the sale of seals for crippled children. Surely this group iustifies its existence.

In this year's debating, we won two iudged debates from Belleville and Ann Arbor, and lost two to Van Dyke and Jackson. Ed Bailey won the declamation contest, Herbert Brown, the oratorical, and Jean Gaskell, the extempore. Jane Carol Bratz won the dramatic declamation contest. Credit should be given to the freshman debaters, for they contributed the largest and hardest-working group that we have had out for several years. Students generally fail to appreciate the good work done by these forensic groups. Most of their work is done before or after school. Hours of library reference digging are spent in preparing for debating and speech contest work. Nor should we overlook the careful supervision of the two advisers who handle this extra-curricular work so well. l DEBATING Varsity Debaters Top row: Gardner, Aldrich, Kap nick, Brown, Childs, Brainard Henson Second row: Gaskell, Hancock, Nic olai, Nickloy, Matteson, Root Peterson, Powell Freshman debaters Top row: Bagrow, Dryer, Poucher Cunningham, Scott, Richmond Peck, Bennett, Root.

"Ziff CAN B5 3514071 01" Membership into the Biology Club is purely a matter of interest in this field. Many social events are enjoyed by this group, and lectures given after school form part of the educational program. Much of the popularity of this club depends on the able leadership of its adviser, Miss Mautino.

This one activity brings training for leisure to a large group of high school students. BAND First row: Colbath, Jennings, Frownfelder, Wotring, Ayling, Thielan, Childs, Underwood Second row: Wade, Bennett, Scholten, Vest, Cole, Cooke, Webster, Graham, Raymond, Briggs, Andrus, Olsen Third row: Dyer, Dausch, Judge, Bailey, Sisson, Allshouse, Bastian, F. Dennis, Cunningham, Dibble, McLaugh- lin, Archer, Miller, Hott. Fourth row: Bastian, R. Angell, Rau, Peck, Graham, Russell, Bassett, Twiss Fifth row: Platt, Gilbert, Webster, Lundohl. From its first appearance at the football games in the fall, until its last appearance in the spring, the high school band adds pep and spirit to every occasion. Under the able leadership of Mr. Paul Ranier, these students contribute not only to high school functions, but to holiday parades and civic celebrations as well. No group of students get better training in being useful to the community. ORCHESTRA First row: Baily, Anderson, Suydam, Tuttle, Sneyd, Prichard, Brower Second row: Seel, Argue, Bangerter, Randolph, Ayling, Thompson, Theilan, Curry, Filter Third row: Raesch, Munger, McLoughlin, Archer, Dryer, Jennings, Hagstrom, Foster, Bowen, Bahm Fourth row: Crandall, Childs, Peck, Pennington, Bastian, Twiss, Gilbert, Webster, Cooke, Lundahl, Cunning- ham, Dibble, Knepper One of the reasons why our orchestra rates high as a whole is the fact that as individuals they win many "firsts" in solo contests. At the spring festival the group always makes a fine showing. They possess the art of showmanship, and every number is done with finesse and precision. "HOUR 0F C'fl'4RM " GLEE CLUBS TOP PICTURE First row: Cole, Clapp, Knitten, Fretwell, Bridges, Griffen, Haines, Loop Second row: Rurnpf, Frye, Roback, Higley, White, Bowen, Bartholomew, Partridge, Johnson Third raw: Rogers, Isaacson, Berry, Bugbee, Walters, Braun, Parker BOTTOM PICTURE First row: Wolf, Rizzie, Eaton, Wilson, Orr, Vest, Jarrett Second row: Plate, Powell, DeGroot, Smith, Willnow, Wiess, Coleman, Dickerson Third raw: Kapniclt, Bailey, Dove, Webster, Christy In place of the operetta, a cantata was given this year. Against the pageantry of Christ- mas, a white-robed choir sang accompaniment to Charlotte Wood's "Lullaby". Landis Stewart, Harold Black, and Dick Bailey sang solo parts in the roles of the Wise Men. The processional of glee club members introduced the Christmas story. Just before the spring festival, the city-wide music groups gave a concert in the new gymnasium. High spot of the evening's entertainment was the combination choir, glee club, and orchestra accompaniment to the guest-sung performance of "Ballad for Americans." "Mv4RKf7 0110714 7l0N5' " "ls this the right shade?" Home economics girls planned, designed and made wardrobes in the latest trends of fashion. At the Vocational Assembly in April they staged a style show. "Am I hungry!" . . . But training in etiquette as part of homemaking courses prevents the knowing guest from saying it! As part of the course, stu- dents are taught meal-planning, cooking, table-setting, the arts of conversation and of entertaining. What gracious hostesses these girl turn out to be! SELACO OFFICERS President-Jean Welsh Vice-president-Patty Myers Advisers: Miss Hasso, Miss Miller Top row: McLaughlin, Alexander, Miller, Wigent, Underwood, Steinhoff, Munger Second row: Sharpsteen, Riner, Welsh, Allshouse, Chorman Home Economics is taught at the house equipped especially for home-making proiects, on Locust Street. Here every conceivable phase of household duties is taught. Here a number of luncheons, dinners, and breakfasts are held for school and teacher's club activities. "B0,VS' 70WlV" Worlcebut it's interesting! Kenneth Kitsen and J. B. Wilson demonstrate part of the doy's routine in Mr. Strobeis shop. What better training could our boys get tor national defense than a working knowledge of metals in industry? Working smoothly- Karl Hamaan watches one of the lathes in Mr. Warren's shop. Here the boys make tools and dies. Mr. Warren turns out ma- chinists who will have unlimited opportunities for employment and advancement. All right - so far! Fred Tornow, and LaVon Olm- stead are seen in Machine Shop, as they learn the fundamental skills, operations and principles involved in the machinists trade. Few schools in the state have as well-equipped vocational shops as our own. "Here, I'll show you' we can almost hear Mr. Strobel say, as he adjusts a machine for John Wood. This shop trains students in bench metal work, heat treat- ing and forging, foundry prac- tices, elements of electricity and related metal subjects. Even the intelligent home owner should possess this knowledge tor every-day living. hx sis Ph "M47l0M4l DfffN5f " Bending out the bumps! Garth DeLand and Richard Wei- denhoft are learning about ma- ior automobile repair work. Here they tackle a body repair job as confidently as you or l might get an English assignment. The sparks do fly! Jack Crots demonstrates the pre- cautions taken in high school shops against iniury to the sight. From piston to ash tray! Leland Kiest is working in Mr. Warren's machine shop. He is converting a piston into an ash tray as a make-over problem in machine shop. "Get in time!" LaVon Holden is one of the many boys who see a future in auto mechanics. With one out of every five persons in the United States owning an automobile, auto mechanics becomes an im- portant occupation. Our boys will join the vast army of men required to build, re-build and service these cars. A skilled worker has a fine chance ot get- ting a job with opportunities for advancement in this field. An automobile is more subject to defects in operation than a watch or a clock.

Again we marched behind the curtains to have our images admitted to the rogue's gallery. Happy days indeed! We were all only too willing to attend the Lenawee County Fair instead of school! The first football game of the year-Blissfield played here. We attempted to break the freshmen in at a dancing party in the gym! Wonder if we succeeded? Also! a football game with Morenci. Again we gladly trudged to the Island to lend our voices for cheering against Sturgis. Another vacation! Well, well. This time it's the Michigan Education Asso- ciation at Lansing. Our boys in uniform left us tonight to go to East Lansing, however, we saw them later, for most of them ended up at our All School Party. Flash! One of those things we always welcome-an assembly! Presented, this time, by the Social Science department. Another chance to weaken or strengthen your lungs-a game with Hillsdale. Flash! You guessed it! Another assembly. Miss Arlite Smith, the energetic young swimmer and diver. Attention all! The Monroe Game. Our good behavior was very much ap- preciated. School spirit? Yes! Partially a vacation-Armistice Day. Football game at Marshall. An assembly in accordance with Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving vacation! Yummy! We hope no one stuffed too much! At least we all survived! Did you get him girls? You had your chance at the Sponge Dance tonight: that delightful ending for our annual sponge week activities. Our first basketball game-Monroe our victims. "The Service Beautiful," a Senior Christmas Music Pageant, presented by Mr. Nelson and his groups. Our Christmas message was delivered by Reverend Greenwood today. Jingle bells and sleigh rides! School is out for TWO WEEKS. Surprise! We were welcomed back by an assembly. The Bentley Music trio brought a chic little dancer. lt's been quite a while since we heard about our "tank" heroes. They were in Jackson today. Those fatal three days of misery-SEMESTER EXAMINATIONS. FUN starring Bob LaReau as master of ceremonies at our annual All School Banquet. FEBRUARY 3 5 14 19 28 MARCH 6-7-8 28 29 APRIL 5 18 MAY 7 30 JUNE 8 11 12 13 "Calling all Cars" Sam Grathwell iust presented a true life picture of G-Men. Remember the code of the F. B. I.? "Fidelity, bravery and integrity." That is all. What strange things can be done in water! At least our pool demonstrators showed us a few! Off to Sturgis for some basket ringing, again. How do you like our gym facilities? At least you know how they work after our demonstration. The third all school party was postponed until March 29th. Three solid nights of basketball. Tournament! The Seniors are in the high light again. This time it is the Senior Play, "The Youngest." Remember how Lawrence Pate came to the front as a promising young actor? Everyone said that it was the best Senior Play that has been staged here in several years. Good work, Seniors! And an added attraction-for tonight at the All School Party, George Gordon's brought a vocalist. All that on top of the floor show put on by Home Rooms 23 and Home Ec. Hawaiian dancers and strumming guitars. lt was a good party. Happy days are here again! Spring vacation-and don't think we aren't ready for it! Flash! Assembly! Entertainment by Aloha Baker. Hollywood or Adrian? They both have talent. Memorial Day-vacation. Senior service. The time is drawing near. Another class day's here. After that grand Send-Off, we hate to leave. Get out your handkerchiefs, girls! There's parting ahead. Alumni Banquet-and every senior is going to try to go this year. So long, Seniors. May the rest of your lives be as ioyous as the past week has been. Come on, Freshmen! You know what this lovable place is all about now- how about putting a little more vitality in your school spirit next year? Juniors, we are now turning our remnants over to you. Good or bad, let's see what you can do with them. This is Station A. H. S. signing off until another year has passed. Pleasant memories! WWWWP0iM Last year we gave a super-Send-Off to the 1940 graduating class. The iuniors took over the lake pavilion at Sand Lake. There they built a dreamland of stars and soft music. Each dance was punctuated by the haunting, lilting strains of Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust" Juniors proudly played hosts to seniors, freshmen, and alumni. We've given you this picture to prove that it was a grand party. Joanne Foote and Bob Aldrich seem to be enjoying every moment, and Ruth Baker and Dorman Godwin seem almost un- aware that the photographer is around! You'd expect Bill Downer to be peering around a corner some- where! Step on it, 1941 Juniors, if you want to beat our record! 'AMWHMW' H00R0 Each year the whole school "lets down" after exams at the All School Banquet. This year this event was planned by committees from all organizations and classes under the direction of Miss Stafford. The theme for the party was army life, and the variety hour that followed the banquet proper featured skits sponsored by various high school organizations. At the left you see the noble efforts of the Biology Club. And below that, we couldn't resist our own contribution from the Follies Bergiere-"Yvette" who sang with three winsome dancers, the Madamoiselles Aldrich, Stewart, Meech. Coy, aren't they?

The financial success of our annual rests partly on the activity plan and partly on the advertising, but more than upon these two, the difference between the ordinary annual and the frills we like to add, rests upon the number of outside contracts sold by this group. They've done a fine job. "VOX POP" Six peppy UD Little f?J girls! Come out! Look about! You'll see them cheering.

How would we live without the bulletin board in the west end of the old building. From early tall until late spring, it announces activities, contests, senior name card and invita- tion notices, SICKLE sched- ules, and all sorts of contests. Students form the bulletin board habit early. One of the innovations this year was the opening of the English library in Room 32 for the benefit of junior and sen- ior English students. Here stu- dents go to read magazines for which they have paid through their English classes. Our magazine rating is high hereg ci state inspector stated, early in the year, that it was one of the best she had come across in a school of our size. Here, also, students can find a number of fiction and non- fiction books for "outside reading." How would the hall look with- out the candy stand? We know how the students would look -- HUNGRY! Through these candy sales, various or- ganizations earn money that pays for many activities dur- ing the year. in this picture, Marie Scholten obligingly posed for us while Bob Ald- rich and Maxine Hines satis- fied a sweet tooth. 1 , .

This year, nine letter men returned to the team, along with many promising newcomers. As the SICKLE went to press, they were off to a good start, with a 9-3 victory over Lakeview High School at Battle Creek. To these boys, one of the highlights of the season occurred on the third of May, when they were the guests of Walter O. Briggs at a demonstration of batting, fielding, and base-running skills by the stars of the Detroit Tigers. In the afternoon they witnessed the game with the Red Sox at the stadium. "Ulf P14055 . "Keep your guard up, boys!" Boxing is one of the most popular sports in the intra- mural program. "Hit the ball, Wimpy!" Volley ball provides excellent recreational exercise. "What are you waiting for, John?" Basketball for basketball's sake is part of the program. Many students who cannot excel in varsity basketball can gain a knowledge of the sport and a real recreational value from intramurals. BOWLING TEAM First row: Griewahn, Nau- man, Wines, Meech, Good- win Second row: Macham, Jar- dine, Hamden, Wood, Parker Floyd Wines is the team cap- tain. The bowling league has set up some splendid scores, as Floyd can show you in his well kept book. 70:47 Rffkffffff Everything's ship-shape So say our shuffleboard en- thusiasts. Eyes on the Ball Table tennis or Ping-pong - whichever you wish to call it, is a good strenuous sport that our intramural girls enioy. Heads Up The girls enjoy basketball as much as the boys do. Intramural sports are carried on once a week for those who wish to participate in girls' athletics, under the su- pervision of Miss Pety. The girls may take part in volley ball, basketball, softball, ten- nis, badminton, swimming, archery, and field hockey. What! No Ball? Congra fula iions T O T H E. Class of 1941 GERITY-ADRIAN MFG.
