As we look back over the year, 1952, the Senior Play will stand out one of the outstanding
events. For the lirst time in the school's history, the play was held at the Croswell Theatre. This of-
fered better seeing, hearing, and seating advantages. The play cast will long remember the scramble
for costumes of the 1910 period, the mix-em and match-em pictures and the strumming of the ukes.
Nevertheless, the play was a bang-up success due to the patience and understanding of the new direc-
tor, Miss Holtmeyer.
The plot was Centered around a minister's family moving into a new parish and all the trials
and tribulations that went with it.

Hats off to the Cheerleaders:
The Cheerleading squad faithfully attended all games, here and away and very admirably took
charge of the pep meetings. The squad consisted of Sue Richards, captain, and Pat Dempsey, a new-
comer this year. Both, we hope, will be back next year with the same high spirit! Lupe Galnares
and Joanne Carter, our two senior girls, will be missed greatly by the squad and the student body
next year. Last but Hot least, our two senior boys, Vaughn Rathbun and Wayne Mills have done a
terrific job in keeping up school spirit. It will take a couple of pretty sharp fellows next year to take
the place of our own "Ridge-runner Rathbun" and "Hot-rod Mills."

performed the formal crowing of the queen, during the half. Following the game, the Queen and her
court were honored at the dance in the Senior Gymnasium.
Many spectators were out for the annual parade, given on the afternoon preceding the homecom-
ing game. This parade consisted of the introducing' of the Queen and her court, and floats made by
the homerooms and organizations of Senior High School. The Booster Club took first place in the
display of floats.

QLowest team score winsj
The Hrst Adrian High School cross country squad organized since 1930 did
an excellent job, Coached by Mr. Sweet they won all of their three dual meets
and placed well in the State and Albion College meets. Frank Denney placed
lst in the Whitmer meet and 18th out of 72 runners in a High School invita-
tional meet at Albion College. The team placed 8th at this meet. Rathbun placed
lst in both Napoleon meets and 20th in the meet at Albion College. In the State
meet at Ypsilanti, on November 3rd, the team placed 13th. Denny was 3rd and
Rathbun 14th out of 138 runners. Both boys received medals from the State for
this performance. The members of the team who received letters - Denny, Bob
Wolfe, Montgomery, Stoner, Gibbs, and Zook - did excellent jobs. The other
members of the team - Dan Frazier, Hayford, Bradford, Holtz, Tidswell, Jerry
Johnson, Raymond, and Jeffrey - should be complimented for their fine spirit.
Stoner was the only member who wasn't a Senior, so there is an opening for
many new members on next year's team.

Assistant Coach Bob Luce
The Adrian High School Football Team, coached by
Bob VVestfall, showed marked improvement, over last
year's team by winning three of their eight games.
Merrill Bales was voted by the members of the team as
being the most valuable player. Art Beaudry and Carl
Roback received honorable mention by the Twin Valley
The opening game with Sturgis, played at the Island
on September 14, ended with a loss for the Maples.
The Adrian eleven out-played the Trojans during the
scoreless hrst quarter, but the visitors came back in the
second quarter to make the score of 6-0 for Sturgis. The
second half proved to be too much for Adrian, and the
game ended 27-6 for the Trojans. Adrian's touchdown was
made by Stan Plate.
On September 21 the victory-hungry Maples ended a
twelve game losing streak, by beating Coldwater 25-13.
Coldwater tallied first on an Adrian fumble, but the
Maples soon regained the lost ground. Vogel made the
ground fly for sixty-live yards to the goal on a hand-off
from Dempsey. During the second half, while the Adrian
defense was shaking up the Coldwater backs, the Maple
offensive kept hitting pay dirt. Sparked by Vogel and
Plate, they finished the game with a 25-13 victory.
The third game played at East Lansing, on September
28, ended with a clear-cut decision for the Trojans. Adrian
accomplished one feat when Dick Davidson, an East
Lansing star fullback, had to leave the game in the lirst
qtlarter from the beating the Maple linemen were giving
him. At the end of the half East Lansing was leading with
a lopsided 19-0. The Maple defense looked better in the
second half, but went to pieces in the closing minutes.
Adrian's backs - Dempsey, Vogel, and Plate - were held
to limited gains. The game ended 31-0 for East Lansing.
On a cool evening of October 5, an alert Hillsdale High
football team punched over two fourth quarter touch-
downs at the Island to beat the Maples 13-0. The defensive
unit, which outshone the offensive with victorious tackles,
was composed of Miller, Kafer, and Clegg. A hard charg-
ing line led by Willey and Roback held the Hillsdale
team back for three quarters. The Adrian offensive was
highlighted by Plate, our hard running back, who ripped
off gains of 21, 33, and 76 yards. These drives were stopped
twice on the Hornets' seven yard line.
On October 12 the Maples bowed to the Marshall Red-
skins in the homecoming game at the Island. The Adrian
football team, playing superb and alert football during the
first period, stunned the highly favored Marshall Redskins
by taking a 6-0 lead. When Marshallls Ron Cornwell, one
of the best backs of the state, fumbled an Adrian punt,
MacDonald, Maple end, fell on it. Vogel and Plate lugged
the leather to the Marshall three before Plate smashed off
the right tackle for a touchdown by inches.
Coach Bob Westfall
In the second quarter the Redskin's powerhouse began
to roll and a 48 yard Marshall pass tied the score. The
Redskins were in command for the rest of the game.
Adrian's defense was highlighted by Roback, a hard
charging guard. Dempsey went 18 yards for a touchdown
in the final quarter. The game ended 33 to 13 for Marshall.
On October 19 the Adrian High football team came
through with their second win ol' the season. The victory,
however, was not easy, as the Wildcats boasted a hard-
and-heavy-to-move line. In the first quarter the fired-up
Maples powered their way to the W'ildcat's five yard stripe
with Plate and Vogel lugging the leather. Plate then went
over for the first score. jack "The Toe" MacDonald booted
the point and Adrian led 7-0. In the second quarter the
Wildcats fought back with a 64 yard drive before Albion's
Morgan scored. The Maples then seemed to hzzle until
Roback grabbed the ball on the Adrian five and ran 65
yards before being stopped. With this 11ew spirit, Bailey
and Dempsey carried the ball to make the score 13-8. Be-
fore the game ended, Bailey again tallied which made the
final score 19-8.
Although losing to Lakeview on October 26, the Maples
played their last home game with a lighting spirit. The
powerful Maple offense struck like lightning in taking an
early lead. On the opening play, Dempsey passed to Mac-
Donald who ran 63 yards before being downed on the
Lakeview nine yard stripe. On the next play, Bailey
slipped through. MacDonald's kick was good to give the
Maples a 7-0 lead. Then Lakeview's powerhouse, sparked
by Kowalski and Francisco charged through to score, but
their extra point fell short. Alert playing on the part of
MacDonald enabled him to fall on the ball in the Lake-
view end zone. He again kicked the extra point, giving
Adrian a 14-6 lead.
In the second half Lakeview came right back to score
twice before the final whistle to make the score 26-14.
When the game ended tempers were high on both teams.
Fists started to fly, but things were calmed down before a
real free-for-all started.
Adrian played Monroe on the cold and snowy night of
November 2, when football conditions were unfavorable.
This barrier did not stop the Adrian High football team
as they came from behind to defeat the Monroe Trojans
7-6. The Maple defense played brilliantly in the below
freezing temperature. Line play was difficult with cold
hands and feet hindering both teams. Roback, IVaid,
Bales, Corley, Dibble, and Harris starred and the defense
stood out. However, Adrian was not successful until its
offensive started to roll.
After the Trojans had scored on a break the Maples
became fired and on four plays had a touchdown. Mac-
Donald booted the all important extra point which
proved to be the margin of victory.

This year the Adrian basketball squad played the season with only one
returning letterman, Jack Dempsey. Adrian won its first game, but were not
very successful after that and ended the season with a record of three wins and
Jack McDonald and Jim Bailey, teamed with guard Jack Dempsey, proved
to be very valuable to our squad. Jack McDonald received honorable mention
in the Twin Valley League.
Adrian lost its first game in the district tournaments to Blissfield, when it
made only about 10 per cent of its shots.
This year, Adrian loses seniors Jack Dempsey, Bill Holtz, "Pug" Vogel,
Bruce Corley, Burge Smith and Russ Raymond, but should get a better start
next year with its four returning lettermen Greg Lambley, Mike Clegg, Jack
McDonald, and jim Bailey.

This year the basketball reserves, under the direction of Wallace Sullivan,
had a rather depressing season and won only two games. As the reserve team is
the training ground for varsity material and uses only underclassmen, the team
did very well. Clarence Horner, Bob Dunbar, and Ray Tidswell were three of.
its members who were promoted to the varsity for further seasoning. The reserve
players which will make varsity material in the future are: Bill Lutz, Lyn Dibble,

Adrian's swim team this year was very successful. John Jeffrey broke the pool
record for the breastfstroke and Dick Camburn broke the back-stroke record. The
team placed third in the State meet.
During the season a small scale epidemic of the ilu hit our swim team and
took some of our best swimmers out of action, but Adrian still went on to win
and finished the season with six wins, two losses and one tie.
The team is losing seven lettermen in 1952, Merrill Bales, Tom Dart, Dick
Camburn, John Jeffrey, Lowell Kafer, and Doug Zook, but they have returning
underclassmen, Don Faust, Gary Garrison, Dick Bailey, George Mort, Bruce
Wolfe, Clyde Duncan, Dave Byrd, Noah Funk, Jerry Robinson, Dave Smith,
Terry Small, Max Powell, and Fred Woodby to carry on in l953.

The tennis team of 1951 had a very successful season with LaVon VVolfe
winning the Singles Championship of the Twin Valley as well as the Regional
Tournament. Paul Koehn teamed with Rollo Garrison to win the Doubles Title
of the Regionals. The Doubles Title of the Regionals was an Adrian affair with
the champs winning over Chuck Skala and Bob Wolfe.
The 1951 team took third place in the State Meet with LaVon YVolfe being
defeated in the finals.
The team of 1952 is not nearly so well fortihed as last year's team but with
promising freshmen reporting our future looks very bright. Bob WVolfe will be
the number one Singles player this year with Bruce Wolfe playing the number
two spot and Pete Hine the third.

They also finished first in the Regional contest and fifth in the State. Their wins
included two from University High QAnn Arborj, one from Hillsdale and one
from Tecumseh. Both of their defeats were handed them by Sylvania. Dick Gibbs,
who is returning this year, placed second in the District Tournament and Dick
Mott placed third in the state.
Mr. Horvath says this year's team is a good outfit. The boys are all con-
scientious and work hard. They will go a long way if they keep up their present
attitude. There are several promising prospects among the underclassmen of this
year's team. A few of the outstanding players this year include Dick Gibbs, Russ
Raymond, Bill Hippert, and George Buskirk.

Baseball of 1951 was very successful with our team being deprived of a tie
for the Twin Valley title due to a tie game with Coldwater which could not be
replayed. The only loss suffered by the '51 team was a defeat to Lakeview, but
as Marshall lost only one game Qthat to Adrianj it succeeded in gaining the
league championship. Ronnie Briggs was the stand-out player for the Manles

The All School Play this year was "Barnaby," a humorous fantasy. In it
were ghosts, leprechans, talking dogs, and a lovable fairy godfather with pink
wings. The play was centered around Mr. Baxter, campaigning for mayorg and
the scheming Boss Snagg, who was his competition. Barnaby, Mr. Baxter's son,
tried to straighten matters out and got involved with all his invisible friends
whom only he and his playmate Jane could see. Matters finally got straightened
out and all was well.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Booster Club was the most
active club in school this year. Their ambition, zest, and ability to boost school
activities was felt from the shingles of the roof to the foundations ol the basement.
No one will ever forget the spectacular sale ol the Sickle. The walking monkey,
the colorful banners, the changing emblems worn by the boosters each day, the
PA. announcements all added up to a unequaled sale ol' Sickles lor which the
Sickle Staff is deeply grateful. Other projects ol' the club included selling of
tickets for the Senior Play, All School Play, Season Football tickets, and Maple
Leaf subscriptions. Another high point was the impressive programs put on lor
the Thanksgiving and Easter assemblies. They also helped with the Red Feather
drive, by putting on a noon movie. The Red Cross drive was started by two
speaking groups who went to various clubs and explained the Red Cross services.
All this was accomplished under the capable leadership ol Miss Sherman,
the advisor. So hats off to Miss Sherman lor helping to make this year's Booster
Club a success.

The Girls' Athletic Association was formed for the purpose of developing
the girls athletic department. Mrs. Kilpatrick is the faculty advisor. Throughout
the year intramurel teams are formed in several different sports. Sixty points are
awarded each girl who participates on a team the required number of times.
Additional points may be earned by being a member of a championship team
or by acting as referee at one of the games. Any girl who has earned 50 points is
eligible for G.A.A.
This year the club again sponsored their annual swim show, 'AThe Aqua Jour-
nal," which was a great success.
At the beginning of the year a tea was held for the mothers of the G.A.A.
members and all had an enjoyable time.
The G.A.A. presented its annual water pageant using a newspaper, "The
Aqua Journal," as its theme. Turning from page to page, we find: THE PRE-
VIEW, BIRTHS, A WEDDING, DEATH, COMICS, SPORTS, SOCIETY, AND
LOST AND FOUND. This was followed by a FINALE, in which all the members
of the show participated.
The show was directed by Mrs. Alberta Kilpatrick and Miss joan Wfickes.

The Art Club was reorganized this year after a lapse of a year. The purpose
of the Art Club is to do anything helpful for the school, community, or them-
selves. One of their projects this year was the selling of Christmas corsages in
hall to promote the Xmas spirit. Anyone who is interested in art may join
club and under the helpful guidance of the advisor, Miss Hutchins, they
sure to receive much encouragement. This also gives the students who have
full a schedule a chance to keep up their art work.

All School Banquet
Richard Hayes, Lester Lane.
"He sees you when you're sleepingg he knows
when you're awake." Yes, Santa Claus was every-
where on December 21 at the "Toyland Hop,"
which was the theme ol this year's All-School
A very enjoyable meal was served at the Baptist
Church at 6:30 by the church women. That favorite
Chicken 'n biscuits was the main dish. The tables
were attractively decorated with large toys and
Following the meal, Mr. Rainier led community
singing of carols. VVith Mike Clegg serving as Mas-
ter of Ceremonies, everyone enjoyed the hilarious
and entertaining program. VVe will always remem-
ber Charlie Waid and his Astonishersg the chorus
lineg the two crooners, Less Lane and Dick Hayesg
and many other entertainers.
After the program the banquet continued at the
Adrian High School gymnasium in the form of a
dance, with Bill Carter's Dance Band furnishing
the music. As the day closed, so ended another
All-School Banquet we shall all remember.
"Mirth Quake," the title ol the l952 Variety show, was a huge success, and
was viewed by a capacity audience. The orchestra, band, and choir did their
share in the program together with various novelty numbers. HFOLll1llI1 at the
Fiddle" by the orchestra, "The Syncopated Clock" Qcomplete with clocksj by
the choir, and "Joshua" by the band were novelty numbers enjoyed by all. John
Ashley as Sam Shovel, Private liar, and the Astonishers with their version of
"That's my Boy" tickled everyone's funny bone. Next came the choir with their
selections from Show Boat." We can not forget the ensemble with "Show Boat
Is Comin'," "Bill" by Joanne Carter, "Make Believe" with Gracie Townsend and
Harry WVilliams as soloists, Lester Lane with Al Jolson's "Toot Toot Tootsie"
and Pete Hine with that beautiful ballad "Ol' Man River." The work of Mr.
Rainier and his able assistants have really shown results by the great ovation
that "Mirth Quake" the 1952 Variety Show received.
