SICKLE STAFF One day, twenty or thirty years from now, while going through things in your attic you will come upon the "Sickle" dated "l949." Undoubtedly it will bring back half forgotten memories of your school days. You will remember it as the year you graduated or the year you were only a junior but early in the season were acclaimed a football hero. Some of you were mere fresh- men but you had your share in school activities. Here in the 1949 "Sickle" are pictures to prove it. This is our wish-"The 1949 'Sickle' may, in later years, recall memories of this year in your life." SICKLE STAFF Iohn Hood ...,.., ................ E ditor Doris Buffer ....... ..................

Freshman Class Officers The dashing young man who has served his class as a faithful President, is Walter Glover, better known as "Walt." Not only is he the most popular fel- low in school, but one of the best athletes, taking part in football, basketball, and baseball. He is a member of the Varsity "A" Club. Holding office for his first year ot service is a fair-haired chap of rising popularity, namely, Stan Meyers. Stan was class Vice-President. He has par- ticipated in noon intramurals and various other school activities. The pert young girl who served as secretary is Shirley Ladd. Shirley, a sprite little gal with a pleasing smile, was on the queen's court this year, is a member of the French Club and takes part in G.A.A. intramurals. The Treasurer, a gal known more for her smile and personality, than her political knowledge is Dolores Karlek. Known to many as "Dee," she took part in G.A.A. intramurals and was for some strange unaccountable reason, an ardent fan of the swimming team. This page is sponsored by DR. E. E.

DEBATE TEAM This year once again, Adrian entered the debate contest of the Michigan Forensic Association. The four members of our team were chosen from the speech class, and were under the capable guidance of Miss Ruth Sherman. Although our four members worked hard to obtain a victorious season. they had to be satisfied with one win and four losses. Their first debate was with Iackson High School where both teams lost. Our debaters played host to Bedford to encounter their second contest. Both teams of Adrian, however, were luckily the winners. The next two contests were sad for the Adrian group when they were defeated by Romulus of Detroit and River Rouge, respectively. These four schools were the scheduled ones. A practice debate was held with Onsted, and an exhibition debate with Te- cumseh was held for the public interested. Neither of these were judged. The others were rated by Iudges from the University of Michigan. Our affirmative team consisted of Iohn Hood as first speaker, and Ianice Smith, as the second speaker: the negative team consisted of lerry Shull as first speaker and lack Bowen as the second speaker. We extend thanks in appreciation for the hard work and effort of these four debaters. This page is sponsored by ADRIAN DAILY TELECRAM 37 FRONT ROW: Cole, Buffer, Pasternacki, Mitchell, Callahan.

STUDENT COUNCIL Under the capable guidance of Mr. Drager, the new advisor, the opera- tions of this year's student council were carried out swiftly and efficiently. Many of the projects undertaken by the council included such activities as two roller skating parties, All-school Banquet, Monroe-Adrian Queen and floats, the dances after the football and basketball games, Sponge Week, and a Talent show, not to mention the noon dancing. Also, the council undertook some of the more helpful services as the lost and found department, information booths, and the friendship committee, which was organized to introduce new students to our school. The committees for these projects consisted of council members and mem- bers of the student body.

Each of these boys, chosen for their virile manliness, unwavering fortitude, and honesty, at- tended the meetings for a month. At the end of the month each boy introduced the next one and then proceeded to tell what he liked or didn't like about the meetings. The usual standbys are comments on the smoke or the "good" be- havior of members. At the end of the year the boys again come back to enter- tain members. This page is sponsored by H. WV.

The Future Farmer Chapter completed a good year that included a variety of activities. Summer activities of 1948 in addition to meetings at home farms of mem- bers, was a county coon tour on August 20. Adrian combined with Sand Creek and Addison Future Farmer Chapters in making their annual trip to a "Tiger" base- ball game in Detroit in late August. Several F.F.A. members made a trip with the Farm- eis' Night Class on September 11 to visit the Larro research farms in Detroit and that afternoon attended Harry Heilman day at Briggs Stadium. At the Lenawee County Fair our Adrian "Ag" boys won the banner award for the best crop judging team in the county and placed second in dairy judging. Crop and livestock exhibits by nearly every Adrian member took a number of blue ribbons. Kapniclc, Voorhees. and Rickaby each sold "A" grade barrows in the big 550,000 project auction sale of fat stcok on Friday of the fair. Adrian chapter members had a number of "A" ex- hibits at the annual Lenewee County Crops Show, held at the project buildings in November. Various chapter members assisted in carrying out the ten meeting-night-school series on "Soi1s and Crops," in which attendance averaged over seventy-five farmers per meeting. The big event of the winter months was the second annual Seed Show in which 180 seed exhibits were judged by Roy Decker, head of the Farm Crops Depart- ment of Michigan State College. Prize winning exhibi- tions in this show included Sidney Iones, Tom Oram, Don Nesbett. David Ruesink. and Howard White. Over 150 seed germination test were conducted for farmers following the seed show. Radio broadcasts became a regular activity of the year after last years initial attempt, Nearly every Fri- day found some group of our members discussing a Future Farmer activity over W.A.B.I. during the ten minute noon extension service broadcast. Nearly all members were given a chance to participate in one or more broadcasts. Soil Conservation proved to be the outstanding project of the chapter for the year. Speeches were developed on conservation, maps drawn of home farms, and a goal of three approved practices set up for each member. At an April F,F.A. meeting the group voted to pay transportation for every member complet- ing three practices at Louis Bromfields farm at Mans- field, Ohio, in late August of 1949. we 4-9 t ,s 4 i- ,X Q' ff 36939 Oo 9 6 FRONT HOW: Gay Moss'ng, Roesch, Carter, Williams, Reed, Emerson, Moore, Ruffer.

The queen to reign at this event was chosen trom Adrian High School by the student body. The lovely queen this year was vivacious Betty Pixley. Betty, atop her throne, was introduced to the city during the afternoon parade. The parade following the pep meeting was led through town by the band. The Coronation ceremonies were held during dance intermission in the gym after the game. Betty made a very pretty picture in her attire of white and was surrounded by her court in pastel colors. Her court consisted of the pretty Misses Marie Nash, lean Shaneour. Ioanne Hadden, Luette Walper, Mary Alice White, and Shirley Ladd. Ierry Shull, popular president of the senior class, first presented the court with their bou- quets of white baby "mums." He then crowned the queen and presented to her a bouquet of large white chrysanthemums. The next event was the grand march which was led by Queen Betty and her escort, Glenn Richards.

'48 FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS The Adrian High Football Squad, under the direction of our new popular coach, Iim DeSpain, threw off its old wraps to use a new zero formation in combination with the single wing. The Maples finished the '48 schedule with 4 wins, 2 ties and 3 losses. The squad completed the season November 12, by triumphantly defeating the Albion Wildcats, 20-13. It was the third straight win for Adrian who led the Wildcats throughout the game. Tom Mitchell, our star fullback, playing his last game for the Maples, was as always the main stay of the teams offense. Mitchell powered over for 13 points. A Callahan to Thompson pass netted B and a try for extra point was made good by Maloney. The game with Monroe, November 5, added to the success of the cour- ageous Maples. Adrian trampled the rough Trojan eleven on a muddy field in the worst weather of the season, by a score of 12-0. Thirteen Adrian players bore the burden of the grueling football battle on the rainswept gridiron. They mashed out Adrian's 18th victory over Monroe in this annual classic. Adrian's first score was brought about when quarterback Walt Grover passed to Bailey who, in turn, lateraled to Thompson who went over the goal line standing up. Tubbs, in the last minutes of the fourth quarter, intercepted a Monroe pass and galloped 60 yards for the final tally which cinched the game for DeSpain's charges. On October 29 Adrian edged out a determined Lakeview grid squad, 6-0. After taking the initial kick-off in the first period, the Maples made a 60 yard sustained drive to the five yard marker .Here Thompson took the ball on a left end sweep for the only score of the game. Coldwater, the Twin Valley co-champions along with East Lansing, on October 22, defeated the game charges of Coach DeSpain. Adrian's forward wall outplayed the Coldwater line, but Coldwater's aerial attack was too much for Adrian's pass defense, bowing the Maples out, 26-12. This page is sponsored by WOOD'S APPAREL 57 October 15, the Maple eleven caught fire in the second half for their first win of the season by decisively defeating Hillsdale 26-6 on the Hornet's home field. The Maple forward wall was outstanding in their play. Maloney and Mitchell both tallied twice with Mitchell running 2 extra points after touch- downs. October 8, the fighting Maples came within an ace of defeating a favored East Lansing eleven. The visitors edged out Adrian 25-19. A Callahan to Thompson pass gave Adrian their first score in the begin- ning quarter. On another series of passes Adrian brought the ball to the Lansing seven. Mitchell went to the one and Thompson swept around left end for the second tally. In the last quarter Callahan threw to Tubbs who went over standing up. Mitchell ran the ball for the extra point making the score: Adrian 19, East Lansing 25. The game ended with the ball in midfield. Adrian's attack was hampered by costly fumbles. On October 1 a Class A Grand Hapids Ottawa Hills tied Adrian 13-13 in the closing minutes of the game. The Maples outplayed the visitors, but a couple of breaks in the remaining minutes of play was all Grand Rapids needed. The pass combination of Callahan and Thompson set up the Maples first score. Mitchell ran the ball over from the eight. On the first play of the third quarter Mitchell broke through the center of the Grand Rapids line for a 51 yard ouchdown. This time Brigg's conversion was good Adrian their 13-7 lead until the last period when the game was dead-locked. On September 24, Adrian tied Marshall 13-13. The hard fighting Maples lost the ball on downs, inches from a winning score in the last minutes of play. In the initial quarter Callahan took a hand-off from Glover and tossed to Bailey for first score. Brigg's conversion was good giving Adrian a 7-O lead. The Maples next score was set up when Mitchell took the ball to the 8, where Callahan scooted through the line for the score. Adrian played hard to win but the breaks didn't come their way. On September 17 the Maples and their new zero formation lost their opener to Sturgis 27-0. Adrian had a chance to tie the score three minutes before the first half, but a fumble at the goal line with a Sturgis guard recovering in the end zone put the ball in play on the 20 for Sturgis. Adrian played to win but the team couldn't get rolling. The Maples trailing 7 points at the half fell apart while Sturgis came through with three additional touchdowns putting the game away. The Adrian High School was awarded one spot on each of the All Twin Valley mythical elevens. In addition an Adrian player was given honorable mention. Top billing went to Tom Mitchell, Adrian fullback, who completed his third year in a Maple uniform. Mitchell was picked as a halfback. Dick Hough, one of the best defensive players in the conference, according to the coaches, was chosen as a tackle on the second team. Honorable mention went to Paul Callahan, who was one of the league's sharpest passers. The seniors who played their last game in Maple colors were: Callahan, Carlson, Chamberlin, Croyle, Gay, Gallanis, Hall, Horton, Hoffman, Hough, Kapnick, R. F. Miller, H. Miller, Mitchell, Maloney, Philips, and Wallschlaeger. 58 FRONT ROW: Phillips, Maloney. Stover, Carlson. Williams. SECOND ROW: Croyle, Mitchell. Fetzer, Shull, THIRD ROW: Thompson, Briggs. Enders.

Their record, three wins and eleven losses doesn't show the many close, one-point games the team dropped to the league lead- ing teams. In the regional finals they advanced to a "hot" Marshall quintet. Coach Wally Sul- livan had tour returning lettermen around which he built his team. The starting line-up at the beginning of the year was composed of Ierry Shull, Don Maloney, Tom Mitchell, Walt Glover, and Iim Fetzer. In the last few games, Croyle and Carmichael were substituted for their added tip-off height and rebound strength. Coach Sullivan will lose Maloney, Mitchell, Shull, Croyle, Phillips, Carlson, Williams, and Stover. These boys, Iuniors Fetzer and Car- michael, and Freshman Glover, Briggs, and Enders, who will be back next year, did a fine job of carrying out Coach Sullivan's directions and should be congratulated. The boys just couldn't pull those close ones out of the fire and Win their share of the games. As Coach Wally Sullivan said, "It was the best team I ever had -that lost so many games."

BASKETBALL RESERVES Coach Iim DeSpain piloted the reserve squad to a good season of eight wins-ten losses. The play of the reserves was much better than the record shows and is a vast improvement over last year's record. The loss of Bert Carmichael, who moved to bigger things with the varsity in mid-season hurt the team's chances for a winning year immeasurably. They started slow but improved and even without Bert, fin- ished the season with some impressive vic- tories. They also advanced to the finals of the Little Five play-offs before losing to a good Deerfield outfit. Reliable starters were: Brown. Hook, Hood, Tubbs, Bradley, and Gifford.

SWIMMING TEAM This years swimming squad added five more wins to the twenty-one consecutive victories piled up in the past three years before they bowed to Ypsi-Central, 44-40. These five brought the record to an amazing total of twenty-six victories before losing. In the first meet of the year, the team beat Ypsi-Central in a nip-and-tuck battle. 43-39. lt rolled over four other teams, River Rouge, 50-34: Trenton, 49-35: University High, 46-38: Ypsi-Roosevelt, 55-28, before losing to Ypsi-Central in their second meet with Central.

University High, 48-36: Dearborn 52-30: and DeVilbiss, 49-34, to climax an excellent season record of ll wins and one loss. In the state meet, they came through admirably to snare second place from their old rivals, Ypsi-Central. Gay, Han- cock, Wolfe, Disbro, Van Sickle, and Miller picked up points in the first eight events. In the final events the 200 yard freestyle relay fGay, Roop, Miller, and Callahan? came through in rousing style to break the old state record of l:45.6 with a time of 1:43.9 East Grand Rapids won the meet with 57 points and Adrian was second with 25 points.
