'Tis really hard to say good-bye And leave this dear old school And all its helpers, everyone Who taught the golden rule. 2 PAUL L.

One of his other titles is Business Manager of the Sickle. He was in both plays and is a member of the tennis team. Vincent Agul, better known as "Vin," served his class as vice-president, "Vin" had large parts in both plays and was a major cog on the baseball team. Our secretary, June Allion, received a lot of practice this year. Besides being class secretary, she is secretary of her homeroom and of the Spanish Club. A quiet, pretty miss, June is a member of the choir. Herbert "Woody" Hood holds the position of "pulling in" the class money. President of the Student Council, he is also on the Sickle Staff. He has proven his ability and faithfulness not only in office, but also in sports. He was a key member of the football, basketball, and baseball squads, This page is sponsored by J. C.

JERE VESCEUUS iclass of '50D 21 CAM IM We, the class of nineteen hundred and fifty, the most noble and distinguished class ever to have trod the halls of learning in Ye Olde Adrian High, County of Lenawee, State of Michi- gan, having at this time, certain knowledge of our death iprobably in June? and being of sound and rather determined mind, do hereby make this our last will and testament. Amen. We, the Senior Class do will: To the Junior Class our exalted positions as senior. lEvery dog has his day, and so will the Junior Classll To those who frequent the "Boiler-room Lounge" we will a year's supply of second hand chewing gum which we have carefully placed under seats and desks. And to the faculty in general, we will the lasting memory of the illustrious Class of '50, "Naow then," we, the Senior Class, will to Mister Roy "MouI-e-cule" Keller a booklet en- titled "How to Yodel in Three Easy Lessons." We also endow the southwest corner of the study hall as a habitual residence for the ghost of Phil Bailey's dignity, said ghost to be kept there for the moral effect upon the school. I, Herb "Woody" Hood, do will my trick of looking innocent at the right moment to Dave "Fred" Fisher. I, Vic Long, will my overworked brain to Dick Mott who will give it a rest. I, Jim Ham, do will my agricultural interests to Pat Fox who "ad-Myers" a certain farmer. I, John "Tarzar" Hancock, will my way with the teachers to Chuck Skala who already has a good start. I, Clarice Jones, will my quiet ways to Elsie "l've got a jokel" Hansen. I, Tom "I only go steady for two days" Cooper, do will my position as a political B. T. O. CBig Time Operator? to Dale "Never Fail" Fleming. I, Barbara "I'm always in a hurry" Pasternacki, do will my small, dainty hands to Walt "I'm all tuckered out!" Glover. I, Rick "DaredeviI" Powell, will my mania for speed to Pat Proudfoot. I, Jim Fetzer, will my speed on foot and otherwise to Larry Goodes. I, Bob VanSickIe, will my ability to get along with ninth grade girls to anyone who likes to get in by ten o'clock. I, Don "Hairy" Winters, will my ability to grow a mustache to Paul Hook. l, Jack Clark, my partial plate to Ronnie Briggs. I, R. J. Miller, will my seat in study hall to anyone who can't find a softer place to sleep. I, Barbara Vogel, will my ATO garter to anyone who wants to get a snap out of life. I, Marilyn Schmidt, will to the faculty all the information that I have furnished them from time to time in various examination papers-knowledge which I am sure must have been entire- ly new to them, too. We, the bridge fiends lCarI, Elaine, Dean, Marlene, and Mary Alicel, will our worn out cards and late hours to any Juniors who like to keep their homework a month behind. In Witness Whereof, We, the Class of Fifty, the testators, have to this our will, written on one sheet of parchment, set our hand and seal, this eighth day of June, Anno Domini, One Thou- sand Nine Hundred Fifty. CLASS OF FIFTY This page is sponsored by RAY P. WHITE 22 Cfarid MOP QC? Since my graduation in l95O, over twenty years ago, it has been a great consolation to me to be able to keep in touch, from time to time, with my classmates by means of that wonder- ful and scientific instrument, television. Not long ago, l heard that famous speech of Alta Robinson, Senator, which was said to have changed the entire vote of the U. S. Senate. Ronald Willnow has been studying Chemistry for some time and is now trying to extract the raisins from the Raisin River. That very popular book, "Sleep, Slumber, and Snooze," was written by John Hancock. lt is especially enjoyed by his classmates as they realize that he gathered the material in his high school days. Pat Brockway is a missionary at Wild Water Beach, Devils Lake. As the name signifies, she has much to work against. Mildred Emery, Helen Keller, and Reo Melville are her assistants. Roger Miller has just invented a lipstick that he guarantees to last as long as barn paint regardless of the wear and tear, or weather conditions. His travelling salesman, James Patterson, is giving extensive demonstrations with the help of his partner, Joan Littrell. A Victor Long, a towering 6' lO" ex-Physics star, is now playing center for the "Addison ggets." Carl Tubbs and Bill Brown are operating a whiskey distillery in Canada, and they are making a very large fortune. They found that their whiskey also cures adenoids. S h Bert Carmichael is now holding that enviable position of Truant Officer of Seneca High c oo. Raymond Roop is receiving popular acclaim for his book, "Then the Little Birdies Built Their Nests" Barbara Timmins and Robert Miller are touring Kentucky where they are collecting ma- terial for their play entitled, "Eating Corn With a Glass." Howard Yost is still playing the part of the stationmaster in that great mystery, "The Ghost Train." Marlene Barnes and Gloria Masteller are still bringing down the house at the Fairy Frolic with their hula dance. Dr. John Charles Tolford, graduate of the Palmyra School of Home Economics, is head butcher and chief seamstress of the Painville General Hospital. Clarke Wilson, contender for the heavyweight championship of the world, is suing the Dick Thompson Sporting Goods Store because the last horse shoe fwhich he purchased purely for lucki splintered his hand in a fight with that powerful light-heavy Joan Randolph. Victor "Sweepy" Skeels has been hired as Assistant Custodian of Sanitary Cleansing Ele- ments lJanitor's helperi at Moldy Bill's Military Academy. Charles Richard, the shrewdest private dick in the business, has opened a school for police detectives. Bob Knechtel is appearing at the Croswell Opera House with his magician show. Barbara Vogel is giving advice to the lovelorn in her column in the Pine Bluff Bi-weekly Buzzard. Roy Andrews has replaced Mr. Davidson as boys' counselor. Bob Bournes has successfully defended his title of Mr. America which he has held for the past twelve years. l have heard that Robert Riley is a prosperous bull rancher down in Texas. Vincent Agul, that well-known baseball personality, is now holder of a new world's record. He has sold more peanuts than any other salesman in the history of Briggs Stadium. Seymour Warner, the sought-after playboy, is seen around New York night clubs with June Allion, Hollywood movie actress. Ahh . . . such is life. Alta Robinson and Carolyn Sharp are editors of the society newsheet, "The Social Gab Blab." Wayne Berridge is still wrestling on television. One of his partners is a certain ex-teacher who was reportedly from the South. Phil Bailey is long-distance star of the U. S. track team in the Olympic games. Now l am content. My television set has served me well, for l have learned something of many of the Class of l95O. I have to quit now to go and see my lifelong friend Professor Rich- ard Lackie, author of the book, "How to Play Tennis in 738 Easy Lessons."

A three-act farce, it kept the audience in stitches from beginning to end. Th finished product was not the old-standing love "triangle" but, instead, a romantic "pentagon."

A delicious steak dinner was cooked by the Home Economics Depart- ment, under the direction of Miss Neilson, and served by the members of the faculty. The outstanding "server" was Mr. Sullivan, chief dipper, who ladeled out a little corn to everyone. Following the dinner came the entertainment under the direction of Mr. Strobel, with Jack Block as master-of-ceremonies. The first act starred Roy Keller, a mountain boy who was carried to Hawaii in a dream. ln his dream there were many girls, dances, and songs. The highlight of the dances was Bob Miller and John Hancock, who were disguised as Hawaiian hula girls and gave a fine interpretation of the hula dance. Concluding the program, The DeSpain Players presented "Uncle Tom's Cabin", a skit written for the occasion by the composition classes. The evening was topped off with a dance featuring the Mapleaires. Much praise should be given Dale Fleming and the teachers and stu- dents whose untiring efforts placed the "Hula Hop" among our pleasant memories.

Besides being President of his class, he's president of his home room, one of our outstanding athletes, a member of Varsity Club, and can be seen working in many other activities. An up-and-coming fellow is Vice-President Dale Fleming, who is spend- ing his first year as an officer of his class. He is a member of Student Council, Varsity Club, and goes all out for football, basketball, and track. Delores Karlek is the gal who can really take the minutes. This is her second year of service to her class as she served last year as treasurer. She was a member of the queen's court at the homecoming, a member of Student Council, G. A. A., and scribe for Selaco Club. The wealth of the class is in the hands of Shirley Ladd who is serving as treasurer. She can usually be seen flitting from one end of the school to the other to attend some kind of meeting. This is only natural, however, since she is a manager for the choir, secretary of her home room, a member of G. A. A., and the French Club, one of our cheerleaders, and was in the queen's court.

CAQQPAGJQPJ This year we had one of the largest and peppiest cheerleading squads Old Adrian High has ever seen. During the football and basketball seasons, they gave very unselfishly of their time and effort both at the pep rallies and at the games, Not satisfied to lead the cheers just at the home games, they went to the away games and led cheers no matter how few were there to cheer. The squad this year consisted of two seniors, Mary Alice White and Barbara Timmins, and four juniors, Mary Miller, Janet Hartung, Shirley Ladd, and Rat Fox, who will be back next year.

Zloofdaf The Adrian High School football team, coached by Jim DeSpain and Wallace Sullivan, ended the l9-49 season with five wins and four losses. Seventeen lettermen left with the graduating class last year, leaving DeSpain with only twelve of last year's men and some new candidates. The Coach organized the boys available and found that they worked together well. ln fact, well enough for them to take second place in the Twin Valley Conference. Two members of the squad were picked on the All-Conference first team. These members were Walter Glover, our quarterback, and Phil Bailey, our left end. Jack Clement was picked on the All-Conference second team at the guard position. Carl Tubbs, Ron Willnow, Ron Briggs, Dick Thompson, and Jim Fetzer were on the honorable mention list. On October l5, Adrian met Sturgis at Island Park. The first ploy of the '49 season sent every fan to his feet because Walt Glover took the kickoff all the way for the first touchdown, During the first half Adrian scored two more touchdowns. When the final gun sounded the Maples were leading l9-l2. Although records are not available, it is believed that this is the first season Adrian has won its opening game since they entered the Twin Valley Conference. On Sptember 23, Adrian met Coldwater at Waterworks Park and turned up with their sec- ond Twin Valley win with a score of l8-l2. The game was four minutes old when Glover smashed through right tackle on the Adrian 49 and streaked to the Coldwater goal, On the fifth play of the second quarter Glover went for a beautiful 80 yard run. A neat bit of side-stepping made it the prettiest run of the evening. Two passes to Bailey put Adrian onthe Cardinal five. Thompson took it the rest of the way by smashing through left tackle. The Adrian players sagged badly in the last quarter but still held their lead. On September 30, Adrian met East Lansing there and bowed to the league leading team 27-6. The game was a series of fumbles, intercepted passes, and queer kickoffs. Their ultra strong line was too much for Adrian's inexperienced line. East Lansing outplayed Adrian in all respects. They turned two fumbles into touchdowns and also ran a kick-off lOO yards for a touch- down. Adrian's only tally came about by some good passing by Glover to Jim Fetzer. This page is sponsored by DOVE BROTHERS' ROOFERS 58 The Adrian Maples met the Hillsdale Hornets October 7 at Island Park for an easy 33-O victory. All five tallies came on runs, three by Thompson and one each by Glover and Fetzer. Briggs kicked three good points, missing two. Thompson made the first two touchdowns, one from the 5 yard line and the other from the l2. Fetzer took a laterial around left end for the third tally. Early in the fourth quarter Glover intercepted a pass and took it 75 yards to paydirt. Half way through the fourth quarter Briggs recovered a Hillsdale fumble on the Hornets 35. Ralph Bradley rolled on a reverse to the 22 to set up a touchdown by Thompson. Hillsdale had 4 first downs to Adrians l l. They completed 2 out of l l passes while Adrian completed 8 out of l0. On October l4 the Adrian fans found Island Park a little chilly but they also found the game very exciting. In the opening period Glover flipped a flat pass to Thompson for the opening tally. In the same quarter Vic Postula sliced over the Maple goal to knot the count. Glover picked up the kickoff on the Adrian 20 and sped down the field. Some beautiful running was shown as he shed off three tackles and broke into the clear. Brigg's kickoff was good leaving Adrian leading l3-6. ln the third period Postula scored again and ran the extra point making it I3-all. Adrian took to the airways and several were completed which took them to the l6 where Postula intercepted one. The play was called back because of a Marshall interference penalty. Glover took it over in an off-tackle play. ln the fourth period Marshall's scatback dashed from the Adrian 45 to their 22. He fumbled when tackled and Ralph Bradley recovered it. During the fourth quar- ter Marshall was inside the Adrian l0 but failed to connect on 3 passes. Adrian held Marshall scoreless the rest of the game and won by a score of 20-13. October 2l, found the Adrian Maples at Albion and they brought home their 5th victory. This game was one of the roughest games played but Adrian outplayed Albion in all respects. The way Albion took the kickoff to the Adrian 5 yard line, the Maples knew they meant busi- ness. The Adrian line set up a beautiful wall that held Albion back and we took over on downs. A fake kick took us to their 4l and a few plays later Thompson bulled over for the first touch- down. ln the second period a series of 6 passes, 5 completed, set Thompson up for another TD. When the third period began Thompson did some nice running and scored again. Albion didn't like the 21-0 scare so they came back fighting and tallied on their fourth attempt inside our 7 yard line. Two minutes later John Wall grabbed a short pass intended for Bradley and took 66 yards before Glover pushed his way through 3 blockers to bring Wall down on the 9 yard line. They soon scored again. There was 50 seconds left in the game when Meyers gave the pigskin a 85 yard ride to paydirt to complete the scoring for the evening, 34-l3. On the cold night of November 4, Adrian met Monroe and ended the game with a heart- breaking defeat, l9-l8. The once powerful back field was weakened by Glover's bad ankle and by the loss of Thompson. lt was strange that the line, which was considered the weak point in the Adrian squad, should be the strength that almost carried the blue and white to victory. A series of bad first quarter breaks cost Adrian the ball game. Glover's fumble on the kickoff and a bad center pass on fourth down, both turned into touchdowns for Monroe. They gained one of the extra points which turned out to be very important. Fetzer carried the main running chores for Adrian since Glover was hurt and Thompson was out of the lineup. Fetzer's threat pulled the 5-3-3 defense in and Glover whipped a pass to Phil Bailey who got behind the Monroe secondary. Bailey was pulled down from behind on the Trojan five. Three running plays failed so Glover hit Fetzer on the goal line with a short pass. The kick was blocked leaving the score l3-6 at the end of the first half. Monroe scored again in the third quarter and they were looking extra good when the Adrian line stopped them cold. Dale Flem- ing blocked Kohler's punt on the ten and Fetzer carried the mail from there. Brigg's kick was blocked and Adrian trailed l9-l2. Soon after the opening of the fourth quarter Glover hit Bailey with a long pass on the Adrian 45. Bailey went all the way with the aid ofa beautiful block by Jim Fetzer. The badly needed extra point was below the crossbar by only 6 inches. Adrian re- gained the ball with only a few seconds left to go. Long passes were the only plays heard in the huddle but Glover's ankle was so bad by that time, he couldn't make any of them connect. The game ended l9-l8. Adrian ended the l949 season on a sad note by losing to undefeated Romulus 6-0. The game was a see-saw battle for three quarters with no one scoring. Then Campbell intercepted a pass. Two plays later Romulus scored but the extra point was stopped short. This game was the Adrian's homecoming game and a crowd of 2,000 fans were on hand. The Adrian '49 squad placed second in Twin Valley with 5 wins and 2 losses. The season's total, including non-league was 5 wins and 4 losses. Adrian made a total of l54 points, from both T formation and a single wing, to their opponents l l0 points.

Uaraify ga5Lefdaf Our Adrian High School Maples silghtly improved their play over last year's team. ln winning three conference games, they managed to end up in a three-way tie for sixth place in the Twin Valley League. The team always seemed to be either ahead or close behind their opponents at halt-time by usually lost out in the third quarter. ln this way the Maples lost many close games to the league leaders. Coach Wally Sullivan had only two returning lettermen around which he built his team. The starting line-up usually consisted of Fetzer, Glover, Hood, Birchtield, and Hook. Bradley, Bailey, Thompson, and Dempsey saw plenty of action as substitutes. Coach Sullivan will lose the services of seniors, Fetzer, Hook, Hood, Bailey, and Thompson. The Maple coach will also lose juniors, Glover and Bradley since they surpass the age limit ot the conference. The varsity's only underclassmen who will be back next year are Birchtield and Dempsey. With the exception of these two boys, Coach Sullivan will have to depend upon this year's reserve team for a successful season next year. This page is sponsored by ROBERT JEWELERS 60 FIRST ROW: l-'l.

The swimmers got the season off to a good start by whipping University High of Ann Arbor 50-53. The Ypsi Central powerhouse proved too much for Adrian to the tune of 50-27. Adrian rallied to win the next four meets- River Rouge, 45-39, Trenton 49-27, Ypsi Roosevelt, 55-29, and the return meet with U. High, 48-39. Once more Ypsi Central broke our winning streak by trouncing Adrian 32-52. Adrian took the remaining four return meets. River Rouge was beaten by a 43-4l score, a very close meet. Trenton, Dear- born, and Ypsi Roosevelt were downed with scores of 60-2l , 52-32, and 59-25 rspectively. The State Meet at East Lansing proved too much for our boys, and we took a fifth. A bright spot in this year's schedule was an exhibition meet with the Detroit Jewish Community Center. The Center's team consists of the pick of the lot from Detroit's Class A schools, Even with this group of powerful swimmers, they were only one point up on us when the final score was tallied.

Lettermen returning from the i949 diamond campaign are: Agul, Glo- ver, Skeels, Hood, Fetzer, and Terpeney.
