IN MEMORY OF MR. O. T. GOODWIN FOR THE CONTRIBUTIONS
WHICH HE MADE TO THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM
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
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."
The Frank Street building with one
of the finest pools, gymnasiums and
music rooms in any school in the
state was ready in September,
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.

In years gone by "Sickles" have usually been published as memorials to each graduating
class. 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.

"SATURDAY if Cf! ZDR N"
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

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?

Austin Weiss: "The only good luck many great men ever had is being born with
the ability and determination to overcome bad luck."
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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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
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.

As the "greenies" of the school, these freshmen
have been doing remarkably well. 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.

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-
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
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
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.

The Frank Street School
boasts one of the finest
music rooms in the state.
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.

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

Early in the year, the members of this group changed the name of the organization from
W. 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.

The Forensic League is made up of those students who have won twenty-one points in any
field of contest forensic work. 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.

Membership into the Biology Club is purely a matter of interest in this field. Many social

of its adviser, Miss Mautino.

Under the direction of Mr. Russel Nelson, the choir does an admirable piece of work.
Several times a year they contribute to concert and school activities. Their help in the
performance of "Ballad for Americans" was praiseworthy. This one activity brings training
for leisure to a large group of high school students.

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.

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.

processional of glee club members introduced the Christmas story.

boys get tor national defense
than a working knowledge of
metals in industry?
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
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
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
"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.

wishes to present a summary of the years' grand and glorious events.
iThe fatal month when it is so hard to settle down and really get into swing
School started today, everyone was in a cheerful mood.
Again we marched behind the curtains to have our images admitted to the
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
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
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
"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
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
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.
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
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
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!
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 SICKLE wishes to express sincere appreciation to Mr. Lutz and his business organiz-
ation classes for the work they have done on our sales. 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.

Both townspeople and students have enioyed our new pool. It is rated
one of the best pools in Southern Michigan. Its tiled pool is tested
regularly. The walls are tiled, and depict water scenes. Along one side
are seats for spectators. These were filled to overflowing during the two
performances of the water carnival.

Our students enioy the new pool to the fullest extent. Mr. Hazen and Miss Pety have
proved themselves two excellent instructors, and our student body is fast recognizing
swimming as a major sport. ln addition to school classes, two adult groups had the
use of our facilities this past year. Students from St. Mory's also use our pool.

In the spring these young men's fancies turn to thoughts of baseball. 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.
