Our school is not o building
Made of bricks and stones and stuff,
Which has no sense or feelings
And treats its pupils rough.
lt has a heart of kindness
Its halls speak peace and love
To all who enter it to learn
And who need a final shove.
lt's filled with all its helpers,
With books and desks and chairs
And also with the teachers
So deserving of our prayers.
'Tis really hard to say good-bye
And leave this dear old school
And all its helpers, everyone
Who taught the golden rule.
PAUL L. RAINIER, A.B., M.A.
The class of '50 respectfully dedicate
this year's Sickle to Mr. Paul Rainier, who
has done such a wonderful job in teaching
and directing all branches of music, not
only in the High School but also through-
out the entire city for many years.

When you see a smiling, dark-haired lad turn around at the shout of
"Cupper," you know that he is Tom Cooper, "big boss" of the Senior Class.
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,

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

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,

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-

Each year ci group of eight senior boys are chosen by the faculty to at-
tend the Adrian Rotary Club, ln selecting these boys the faculty members
take under consideration the boys' scholastic records and citizenship. Each
boy attends the meetings for one month to become acquainted with the mem-
bers and the operation of this fine club. During his last meeting each boy
introduces the next guest and tells of his likes and dislikes ofthe meeting.
At the end of the school year all the boys return and take complete
charge of one meeting to entertain the members.

This year's all-school play, "The Whole Town's Talking," was pre-
sented at the armory on December l and 2. 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." The play
was climaxed by a "fight in the dark," and the villians were beaten up in
the best "mellar-drammar" fashion.

The "Hula Hop", this year's all-school banquet, was held in the senior
gym, which was appropriately decorated as a Hawaiian island.
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

Walt Glover, who's known as a friend to all, is serving his second year
as President of his class and all agree he's doing a mighty fine job. 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

terest in sports for girls. Meeting were held the first Tuesday of every month

sisted ot socker, volleyball, basketball, bowling, softball and swimming. Any
girl who had earned l5O points in any of these sports is eligible.
The main project was the swimming show, "Dream Drops" held in
March. This along with other projects, was a big success. The club is under
the capable leadership of Miss Beechler, Physical Education teacher.

Under the active presidency of John Tolford, this year's French Club
was a complete success. Excellent co-operation again made possible the spon-

However, in the French Club all was not work. Periodical meetings for
business and fun were held throughout the year.
The club would not have been a success if it were not for the guidance
of Miss Mishica, the sponsor ofthe club.

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.

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.

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
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.

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.

The team was composed ot a good group of fellows who should provide
some good material for future years. Boys who showed exception promise
were Corley, Raymond, G. Fisher, Stockwell, Gray, Williams, and Enders.

The swimming team had a good season this year with a total of nine
wins and three losses.
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
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-
