111! A. H. S. WHIRLWIND 1931 lllllll A BOOK PUBLISHED ANNUALLY BY THE STUDENT BODY OF ALBANY HIGH SCHOOLDEDICATION Miss Minerva Braden, instructor in English «W Journalism, this edition of the Whirlwind is lovingly and gratefully dedicated. As our class adviser last year, as adviser for the school paper, and as a teacher and friend, she has been capable, patient, and pleasant, and ive deeply appreciate our contacts with her. The student body and faculty wish her success and happiness in the future.FOREWORD In this 1931 edition of the Whirlwind, it has been our purpose to present a truly representative high school annual and not merely a class book. However, we have endeavored to give to the members of the senior class, of whom we are justly proud, a book replete with memories and faces of high school days, to be treasured and enjoyed in later life. We of the staff sincerely appreciate the help and advice given us by Mr. Hudson and Miss Chase in organizing this 1931 Whirlwind.Acknowledgments Engraving HICKS-CHATTEN CO.

In 1927 the freshmen at Madison elected the following officers: president, Ivan Zimmerman; vice-president, LaY ora Emmett; secretary, Nadyne Reiley; and treasurer, Ethel Magers. At Central the same proceedings were going on. Robert Marks became president; Mona McFarland, vice-president; and Wallace Kennedy, secretary-treasurer. While only freshmen both the Madison and Central students were well represented in dif- ferent activities; Madison won the freshman debate contest. When these classes left Junior High to seek their fortunes at A. H. S., many wondered what had happened to them. Through television came the information that the sophomore class officers were being elected : Ruth Potwin, president; Elma Morton, vice-president; and Katherine Boucher, treasurer. During the sophomore year Ruth Potwin tied for first place in the declamatory contest, while the class debaters won the interclass debate contest. 1 he following year it was learned that the class had been progressing rapidly; they were now juniors and were proud to be called “upperclassmen.” As before in the freshman year, Ivan Zimmerman became class president. The other officers were Ethel Magers, vice-president; Donald Stalcup, secretary; and Katherine Boucher, treasurer. Members of the class took parts in the Dramat plays, besides presenting one of their own, “Tea for 'Pom.” This was the first time in the history of A. H. S. that the junior class had ever put on a class play. Since the interclass debate contest Avas won again by the juniors, and since Clare Stewart took the leading part in the operetta, Peggy and the Pirates,” and also won the district oratorical contest, the junior year was considered quite eventful for the class of 1931. Three years passed, and the fourth and last year at A. H. S., which seemed the most important of all, was coming on. An auburn-haired boy, named Woodsor. £-■ J Ttcehto A THE WHIRLWIND A SENIOR CLASS HISTORY (Continued) Bennett, who came to A. H. S. from Bend, Oregon, in his junior year, was elected senior class president; Donald McCrary, vice-president; LaVora Emmett, secretary; and Katherine Boucher, treasurer. Martin Kropp was elected student body repre- sentative; our adviser was Miss Marion Stanford. The class again won the inter class dehate, which shows that Clare Stewart, Laura Margaret Smith, Robert Poliak, Hague Callistcr, Isabel Van Waning, Waldo Munsey, Betty Stuart, and Katherine Boucher are wonderful debaters. Besides this a number of the leading parts in the operetta were taken by seniors. The class of 1931, the largest graduating class in the history of A. H. S., has done its part in giving to the school its best ability in the different activities, such as sports, debate, dramatics, and music. Everyone was happy to see and hear of the history of the class of ’31 through the invention of television. Senior Saga Seniors at last! It has been fun hi A. H. S. See what’s been done lit football, tennis, track—in short, We’ve shone at every kind of sport. Dramat we entered with a will. Debating is our strong point still. We’ve worked quite hard and done our best. Tried to leave records for the rest. Please don’t mind if we boast a bit— We’ve lots to learn—and we know it! So, soon ive’ll be out and lost in the crowd— For just a little while—let's be proud! —Margaret Wood. 2 Thirteen -4 A THE WHIRLWIND A ?

Our Albany school days are almost over, and in a few short weeks we shall be scattered to the four corners of the earth. Some of us will enter upon the serious affairs of life; others will pursue studies in colleges and institutions of higher learning. Therefore, we do make and hereby declare our last will and testament. Article One: To everyone we bequeath a fond farewell and best wishes for good luck. Article 7 wo: 1 o the class of ’32 we will the title of “Senior,” realizing, however, that its members will never reach the higher heights of glory, honor, and learning that the members of the class of '31 have attained. Article Three: To the faculty we utter a sincere wish that sometime they may have another class like us. Article lour: lo the coming freshmen and sophomores we express the hope that through hard labor they may become as intellectual as we. Article Five: Some of our individual stars make such bequests as the following: 1. I, Ivan Zimmerman, leave my handsome athletic figure to Kenneth Curry. 2. We, Lima Morton and Gladys Meyers, lend our ability to cook the hot lunches at noon to Jane Goodale and Maxine Willett. 3. I, Russell Haynes, leave my long legs to Robert Ferguson. 4. 1, Bob Poliak, bequeath my great store of knowledge to Asa Lewelling. 5. 1, Dorothy Smith, entrust my dignified ways to Charlotte Lambcrty. 6.

The remaining members of the senior class leave to Billie Barrett their wishes for acquiring the attentions of all the new girls. In witness whereof, we, the class of 1931, do hereby fix our hand and seal to this will, this 29th day of May. 2 -S Tiff nty-f ourTHE WHIRLWIND —O A SENIOR PROPHECY 7fl)HILE living in Alaska, it suddenly dawned upon me that for years I had not heard from any of my friends of ’31. The thought made me very lonesome, because I realized that 1 desired to hear from them more than anything else in the world. When I was nearly desperate, I happened to glance over in the corner. There stood mv television set silently waiting, it seemed, to give me an answer. Verily, “More things arc wrought by prayer than this world dreams of!” 1 arranged my set so that I should first get Albany, Oregon, w here I knew some of my classmates would still be living. Surely enough!. The first person whom I saw was Woodson Bennett, then a salvation army officer, preaching on Fourth and Jackson streets. Lauretta Kielblock, Roberta Wire and Izola Lee held the collection plates and sang while several men, whom I recognized as Max Rohrbough, Robert Schmidt and Howard Conner, played saxophones to the tune of some old hymns. I was greatly surprised to hear and see these former classmates of mine. Among the large crowd listening to them were Dr. and Mrs. Harmon Traver. During her school days Mrs. Traver was the mayor’s daughter—Edith Calavan. Clare Stewart, a saleswoman for corn plasters, happening to be in Albany at the time, could hardly believe her eyes when she identified in the Salvation Army organiza- tion those who used to be her dear old A. H. S. classmates. Just then my set went blank on Albany, but by switching the connections I was able to get San Francisco, California. In a court room scene I saw Annette Tindell suing her husband, Ivan Zimmerman, for desertion. Isabel Van Waning was Ivan’s lawyer, while Hague Callister was Annette’s. Looking at the different billboards 1 saw advertisements concerning the personal appearance of three comedians: Donald Stalcup, Russell Williamson, and Oscar Schaubel. Later I heard Professor Arnold Wolverton speaking on several subjects unknown to me—and perhaps to him! He was supposed to know everything, however, as he taught at Smith College, a well- known girls’ school. Again I twirled the dial, this time reaching a New York station where 1 saw Katherine Boucher driving a sixteen-cylinder Cadillac roadster with her latest husband, Bruce Senders, sitting beside her. Bruce was a noted chef, this being a mighty good thing for Katherine, since her other husbands had obtained divorces because of her inability to fry eggs. Marion Hoefer, Martin Kropp, and Orval Robertson were the former victims who had been “starved out.” Over this same radio station 1 heard Laura Margaret Smith giving a talk on how to straighten curly hair. Virginia Tripp and Ruth Potwin gave a clever reading about the joys of spinsterhood. YVith my heart in my throat I saw Robert Poliak, Harry Eagles, and Gayle Lewis working on top of a seventy-seven story skyscraper in New York, an edifice being erected by the two architects, Aden and Elbert Chambers. Down at the dock landing Mr. and Mrs. Jimmie Ralston were leaving for Italy to spend their honeymoon. Mrs. Ralston was the former Dorothy Smith of the 1931 senior class. Suddenly I heard the noise of an airplane. Who should be piloting it but Gertrude Mishler! She was flying in a zig-zag way, and she must have been feeling blue, for she was writing in the sky, “The best days of my life were the good old days at A. H. S. with the class of 1931.” I reversed my television set and dashed back to her, “It hain’t no use to grumble and complain; it’s just as cheap and easy to rejoice.” I felt so much happier after seeing and hearing my old classmates of “the brave days of old.” I should not have been able to exchange messages, had it not been for mv television set standing in the corner. —M.

In every CD activity this class has been well represented. There are members from the class who have been prominent in football, tennis, basketball, baseball, track, band, and orchestra, Hi-Y Club work. Glee Club, and debate. Others are members of Quill and Scroll, the paper staff, the annual staff, while others have participated in the carnival and numerous other extra-curricular activities. When this class first entered the high school, the teachers realized that it was very energetic. For two years the magistrates “worked on the students until at last the surplus energy of each student has been directed into some useful activity. I he leaders of the senior class next year will probably come from this group of students, athletes, journalists, musicians, and entertainers.

We were especially prominent in student activities. We furnished material for all high school teams. As sophomores both classes went to Senior High School in 1930. The combined classes from the two schools gave us a large class, and our activities were even more noticeable. It was during this time that the boys won the interclass basketball cham- pionship, and the girls won the girls’ interclass basketball, volleyball, and baseball championships. The sophomore year was much the same as the freshman except that we were working harder. As an incoming class we had to be taught the proper re- spect for upperclassmen. During our junior year athletic successes have been very pronounced. On the football team we had six members on the first team, and in basketball we had three members on the first team. The managers of both teams were chosen from the junior class this year. Oren Sudtell was manager of the football team, and Billie Templeton manager of the basketball team. The girls won the volleyball and basketball cham- pionships again. We have also been able to furnish material for other activities of our high school, such as the glee club, dramat, and debate. At Thanksgiving the juniors gave a short play as part of the program which they sponsored for the assembly. Later in the year they gave one other play, “The Blind Date,” to raise money to finance the junior-senior picnic, which is an annual event near the close of school. As juniors we have had many problems to solve and many new situations and conditions to meet. We have emerged, however, with Hying colors and look forward to a most successful senior year. z - o Thirty— ▲ ------------------- THE WHIRLWIND a CoNSER Whitney Penland Prager SUDTELL Bates Bird Ross Miss er Bray Bickman, G.

SOPHOMORE HISTORY JN the fall of 1930, the sophomore class numbering about one hundred and thirty, started on an adventure in search of new worlds—which they found with a ven- geance in Albany High School. Here they were greeted by other wayfarers, better known as juniors and seniors, who welcomed them with a sophomore reception which allayed their fears and introduced them to the social life of Albany High School. They had just become accustomed to the regular routine when activities began, and once begun they never ceased. Here are a few of them. We are justly proud of the manner in which our sophomore debaters acquitted themselves in the interclass debates, and we hope that Charlotte 1 rickey will carry her enviable record into the high school debates next year. While the sophomores did not expect to make the high school team, they derived good training for the coming year. The officers selected to man the sophomore ship in its first hazardous voyage were as follows: Bob Lee, president; Edith Chambers, vice-president; Mildred Stenberg, secretary; Margaret Mulligan, treasurer; Betty Conn, class representative to the student council; Miss McKnight, class adviser. The Girls’ League playlets also included many of the sophomore girls who played prominent parts, among them being Nora Coates, Madeline Maley, Alice Rich, and Elaine Warner. The talent displayed showed how much may be expected from the sophomore class along dramatic lines. The operetta “Betty Lou” included many of the sophomores. While we do not care to be too boastful, we feel that Julian Bryant’s tenor and Charlotte Trickey’s contralto put some of the “pep” into “Betty Lou.” Among the sophomore members of the Glee Clubs this year are Marybelle Barrett, Charlotte Trickey, Edward Bryan, George Mitchell, and Julian Bryant. In February, the sophomores contributed their bit to the auditorium activities with a program on Washington’s birthday, which included several clever numbers reminiscent of colonial days. Several sophomore youths and maidens presented a group of old-time dances, the Minuet and Virginia Reel, as well as individual musical numbers. We appreciated the assistance of Judge J. K. Weatherford, who favored us with a patriotic address, in which he drew a striking comparison between the environment of colonial times and that of the modern times. All through the year our class has taken part in athletics—our girls in volleyball and basketball, our boys on the second teams in football and basketball. Some day we hope to boast some lettermen ; now we are getting into our stride. Watch us next year! ,------------------------------------------------------------------- Thirty-seven▲ THE WHIRLWIND A Sophomores Anderson, Edwin Anderson, Robert Barrett, Marybelle Bates, Jane Boukhman, Hilda Bowman, Nadyne Brunson, Georgia Bryan, Edward Bryant, Helen Bryant, Julian Buchanan, Norma Budlong, Larrie Bursell.

There has been more of a feeling of cooperation between the students and instructors than has ever existed before. Many new organizations have also been established, and these changes have given the students a diversion from their regular studies. At the head of this staff of teachers is the principal, Miss McCourt, who has been with the school a number of years. Miss Velma Kizer, English instructor, and Miss Lcttie Pratt, history and science teacher, have also proved themselves worthy in all the years in which they have taught at Madison. Miss Opal Jarmon, a graduate of Oregon State College, has presided over the home economics division for three years, while Mrs. Gertrude McLeod, algebra instructor, and Mr. W. C. Mickleson, manual training teacher, have been at Madison for two years. Miss Pearl Turnidge, who was graduated from Monmouth Normal School, is teacher of commercial arithmetic. Miss Jennie B. Ritchie, a former in- structor at Maple School, now leads the pupils through the difficulties of Latin. Mr. Richards is the chief guide for the students of Central School and supervises his subordinates. Miss Morgan is the inspiration for English, grammar, and literature, while Mrs. Vandel is the vocational guide. Mr. Lehman teaches world history and assumes the role of “aide-de-camp” to Mrs. Vandel. Mrs. Anderson acts as a counselor to the girls interested in domestic arts, and Mr. Palmer instructs the boys in manual training and leads a class of young scientists. Thirty-ninro------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a Stenberg, G. Short Kizer McCi.ain McGuire MADISON CLASS Ok ECAUSE the Madison freshman class of 1931 will soon be only a memory of the happy days spent there, we, the freshmen of Madison Junior High School, bequeath all the happiness and friendship of our freshman days to the coming classes. Many splendid activities marked the progress of our school year. Shortly after the beginning of the term the class met and organized under the leadership of Clinton Stenberg, president; Bruce Short, vice-president; Jeannette McClain, secretary; Eldora McGuire, treasurer; Eleanore Schaubel, reporter; and Miss Kizer, class adviser. Although not many entertainments have been given by the freshman class, one party stands foremost in our memories—our first freshman class party. Many of us came not well acquainted, but left with a feeling that we knew each member of the class. The Freshman Frolic was another momentous event. This was held on the eve- ning of January 23. A large crowd attended with remunerative results. From the proceeds the Eoco Club was enabled to purchase curtains and necessary stage equip- ment. At this time the Eoco Club presented two one-act plays, “Right Around the Corner,” and “The Little Bluffer.” On February 27 “The Butlers,” a two-act comedy-drama was given by the Eoco Club with a cast composed of club members. Later in the spring other one-act plays were given, principally “The Boob” and “Flittermouse.” The officers chosen to conduct the Eoco Club activities were as fol- lows: Bruce Short, Keith Cunningham, Joan Burnett, Kenneth Miller, Mablc Harter, and Woodrow Truax. Miss Kizer, our English teacher, was the coach. Two other very active clubs of our freshman year were the M. E. N. and the Girls’ League. The Girls’ League officers were Margaret Ross, Genevieve Bodine, Rose Kelty, Mable Harter, Gertrude Cox, and Jeanette McClain. The M.E.N. officers were Carl Olson, Keith Cunningham, Clinton Stenberg, and Arthur Rothrock. The fact that the work of the freshman class was particularly splendid causes the faculty and class members to believe that the extra-curricular activities have done much to contribute to the parts the class will play in the affairs of the future. Our fresh- man girls and boys have become proficient in successfully carrying on plays, candy sales, committee meetings, business meetings, and all duties pertaining to organiza- tions. We are hopeful that our experiences at Madison w.ll aid u in taking an active part in the life of the Senior High School when we enter there next year.

Central Pioneers “Come, my tan faced children. Follow well in order; get your weapons ready.” Central freshmen answered the call 104 strong on September 22, 1930, vf fully prepared for the long trek through the Land of High School Life. Knap- sacks in hand, the Pioneers began to organize their train. Mr. Arthur Palmer was elected counselor for the first lap of the journey; the other officers were Jim Davis, captain; Mary Louise Oliver, assistant captain; Hob Potts, scribe; Roberta Bennett and Kenneth Holmes, correspondence scouts. 1 he various organizations within the caravan were the freshmen girls' group, the boys’ basketball team, the girls’ athletic teams, and the freshmen chorus. For emer- gencies and protection a police force and a fire squad were chosen. Since there were many strange faces in the encampment, the officers decided to stage a social “get-acquainted” gathering, determined that all of the company should be friends before actually embarking on the long trek. The party was a jolly one and was deemed a success. 1 he next outstanding event of the Pioneers was the tea in honor of the mothers, given by the girls’ group. The girls and their advisory guide. Miss Morgan, arranged a program consisting of a review of national types. A girl, dressed in fitting attire, sang, danced, or read a selection in keeping with her particular nation. The girls served refreshments in their charmingly decorated room. The train organization for boys was the basketball team. The boys contested with the organizations of other caravans and settlements along the way. The Central team made an excellent showing in all games. Mr. Lehman acted as guide to the boys. The third organization for the travelers was the chorus, directed by Miss Larsen. This group sang at several of the assemblies where the whole company was called for consultation. The Pioneers are determined to reach the end of the first lap of the trail in June of this year, and to start on the second stretch, known as the Sophomore Trail, in September. The Great Divide or Forking of the Roads is set for the spring of the year 1934, when the Land of High School Life will have been crossed, and College or the Wide World will lie before. -e Forty-twoAtkeson, Howard Height, Esther Benedict, Alton Bennett, Roberta Bibb, Martha Blanchard, George Brown, Veryl Brush, Leonard Bryant, Jack Burt, Sidney Burton, Eugene Butts, Leo Byers, Robert Chandler, Elaine Clark, Virginia Coats, Doris Coats, Lucile Cochel, Lena Collins, Howard Conn, Harold Cox, Carol Dannals, Sloan Davis, Jim Dowd, Morris Dumbeck, Ruth Earp, Edwin Eastman, Lucile Erwin, Francis Fowler, Bruce Gassman, Phillip Gibberson, Lucile Gepner, Leo Gingerich, Alice Goff, Trylba Central Freshmen Goodman, Myrtle Goodman, Kenneth Gray, Clair Haglund, Mildred Haley, Alta Haley, Hazel Hall, Edward Hodges, Sally Hoflich, Hazel Holmes, Kenneth Huffman, Margaret Jenks, Virginia Johnson, George Johnson, Velna Karstens, Marjorie Keebler, Dell Kelly, Margaret Kelly, Esther Kenagy, Irene Koster, Lena Lemons, Edith Lochner, Evelyn Lochner, Irene Lopuson, Dick Lund, Dorothy Maguren, Bob Martin, Verna McClellen, Blanche McWhorter, Francis Miller, Theresa Mishler, Isabelle Morgan, Dick Morlan, Ernest Morley, Neva Moule, Galena Myers, Josephine Odenburg, Arlie Olliver, Mary Louise Olsen, Herold Patterson, Floyd Penn, Eva Potts, Bob Price, Edith ReDenius, Ellyne Rex, Gerald Reynolds, Thelma Ridders, Mary Anne Riggor, Laurence Riley, Kathryn Roberts, Francis Rohrbough, Mary Edith Russel, Jessie Saar, Murline Scott, Jane Senders, Ralph Shaw, Elwyn Stanley, Albert Stewart, Henry Stewart, Robert Stuart, Josele Triplette, Dick Truelove, Loel Truelove, Carl Widmer, Marie Williamson, Grant Willis, Neil Wolgamott, Opal Wyman, Marion Zehr, Oliver Forty-three a THE WHIRLWIND — ▲ The Little Sophomore (With apologies to James T. Fields) We were crowded in the classroom; Not a soul did dare to sleep; It was IVednesday, early morning. And uncertainty did creep. Tis a fearful thing, in springtime, To be shattered by a blast. To hope to hear the bell ring thrice. And then the second ring the last! So we shuddered there in silence, With a shivering of a sort. While within the office downstairs Mr. Finnerty held his court. As thus we sat in darkness. Each one busy with his prayers, “Not a chance! said someone hoarsely, And was met with fearful glares. But a little sophomore whispered, To a senior, pale ivith fear, Mr. Hudson said to tell you That the speaker just got here. So we cheered the little maiden. And became quite wildly gay, For we knew we'd have assembly Sometime during that glad day. M.

INTERSCHOLASTIC DEBATE 1 LB ANY High School’s debate season proved a very successful one in spite of L»' A t|le faet that the school was eliminated in the finals. Much work and prepara- tion were put on the debates, and interclass talent shows a bright outlook for next year. On January 15, Albany’s negative defeated Lebanon’s affirmative 2-1, while its affirmative lost to Corvallis 3-0. On January 29, Albany affirmative met Indepen- dence and won 2-1, and the following week our negative defeated Jefferson 3-0. February 12 was a great victory for Albany, as our teams defeated both Jefferson and Independence 3-0. The last dehates of the season were held on February 19 when our affirmative won 2-1 from Lebanon, and Corvallis defeated Albany negative 2-1 at a very close debate. File result was that both the affirmative and negative lost one debate each, that one to Corvallis. Clare Stewart and Laura Margaret Smith upheld the negative in the four debates, with Waldo Munsey and Bob Poliak as alternates. Ivan Zimmerman and Woodson Bennett upheld the affirmative in the first debate of the season, but Hague Callister and Isabel Van Waning debated the remaining three. New talent must be found for next year, as all eight debaters are seniors and are graduating this June. The question for this year was, Resolved: That chain stores are detrimental to the best interests of the American public. The topic was naturally much more interesting this year than in former years, and considerable interest was taken in the high school debates by the business men of the city. Those who participated in the debates feel that they have gained much worthwhile knowledge and experience, which will undoubtedly help them in later years. The work of Mrs. Childs, the debate coach, inspired the team greatly during the past season, and it wishes to thank her for her untiring efforts. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Filly-------------------------- z a THE WHIRLWIND a Muxsey Van Waning Pou.ak Boucher Cai.uster Stuart INTERCLASS DEBATE C pfHE class debates were held this year on December 18 and 19. The seniors suc- ' ceeded in winning first place, while the juniors were second and the sophomores third. Great interest was taken in debate this year, especially by the sophomores, who had two complete teams. The members of the championship senior team were Hague Callister, Betty Stuart, Katherine Boucher, Isabel Van Waning, Waldo Munsey, and Robert Poliak. '1 hose debating for the juniors were Robert Ferguson, Sam Bickman, Alta Dawson, Alice Wilcox, Perry Long, and Lawrence Misner. The personnel of the sophomore debate teams consisted of Nadyne Bowman, Helen Cleland, Pauline Higbee, Alice Midwood, Julian Bryant, Glen Gentry, Grant Lindsay, Eleeta Coates, Richard Stockton, Pat Hutchins, Everett Richards, Leon Muller, and Charlotte Trickey. Mrs. Childs was very greatly pleased with the interest shown both bv those participating in the debates and those who took no actual part but who lent their support. During the past few years Albany High School has been quite successful in inter- scholastic debates and in other forms of public speaking. This may be attributed to the fact that our debaters have always received practical experience from the inter- class debates in which they compete, thus preparing them for the opposition they must necessarily meet later. Because of this participation, they are much more confident when they begin debating for the high school, and, as they are acquainted with the subject, the results also are better. This year Mrs. Childs spent the seventh period each day in helping those interested in debate. '1‘he question for debate this year was, “Resolved: That chain stores are detri- mental to the best interests of the American public.” 2 O Fifty-onrTHE JUNIOR PLAY ON APRIL 21 the junior class presented their annual play to a crowded house in the high school auditorium. The play, “Blind Dates,” a farce in three acts, kept the audience in a humorous frame of mind all evening. The purpose of the play was to raise money with which to finance the annual junior-senior picnic. The result was very satisfactory, and the picnic was assured. The cast was coached by Mrs. Childs and Miss Braden of the faculty.

T. Nicholls. Pro- fessor Nicholls took charge of this organiza- tion eight years ago; during this interval it has risen to a place of prominence not only in Albany but also throughout the state. The band won second place in the Class A division of the Oregon State Hand Contest held at Oregon State College in 1930. 'I'his year in the State Band Contest held on the O. S. C. campus at Corvallis, Albany High School won first place in the Class A division. Since Albany ordinarily would be placed in Class B, but this year was entered in the Class A contest, the winning of the contest was an event for elation on the part of the school and community. Albany is proud of its band. The annual concert by the band was given in the high school auditorium on the night of February 4. It proved to be the most successful entertainment of this kind ever given within the portals of our school. Numerous solos and extra features greatly enhanced the program. With the addition of oboe and bassoon to the repertoire of the instruments the instrumentation of the band is much nearer completion. The popularity of the band this year is due to a very capable group of officers and to Mr. Nicholls, who plays no small part in making the band a success. The officers are as follows: president, Bruce Senders; vice-president, Robert Ferguson; secretary-treasurer, Clifford Davis; manager, Max Rohrbough; and libra- rian, Arnold Wolverton: The personnel of the band is as follows: Clarinets: Bruce Senders Clifford Davis Howard Conner Dick Littler Willie Frager Robert Hoefer Jack Hall T rum pets: Max Rohrbough Harold Hauser Kenneth Curry Robert Schmidt Myron Willard Robert Douglas Altos: Charles Chambers Stanley Hoefer T rom bones: Aden Chambers Morris Dowd Sidney Burt Lester Erb Saxophones: Russell Williamson Glen Gentry Adolph Drager Harry Eagles Basses: Baden Rupert Francis Grenz Baritone: Robert Ferguson Oboe: Robert Walkup Flute: Jimmie Ridders Bassoon: Robert Williamson Drums: Richard Morgan Ralph Senders Gordon Jacobs Fifty-four OTHE WHIRLWIND ▲ -s Band Orchestra ORCHESTRA UV-THE Albany High School orchestra is much larger and better than it has been for some time, as there are many new instruments and faces. The addition of an oboe and a bassoon has proved to be a great help. The organization has thirty-six members, an increase of nine members over last year. The orchestra has played at many public entertainments and has aided in numerous high school assemblies. It also played in the annual high school band concert, which was held on the evening of February 3. In this program selections from Schubert, Bizet, and other well-known composers were rendered. The concert was a pleasing success and showed to a high degree the musical ability of the orchestra. Under the careful guidance of Mr. Nicholls, the orchestra has steadily improved until it is now looked upon as an organization of great talent and ability. The officers for this year are as follows: president, Florence Clifford; vice-president, Martha Harris; secretary-treasurer, Victor Warfield; manager, Robert Ferguson; librarian. Kenneth Curry. Fijty-fivt -o----------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a THE GIRLS’ GLEE CLUB Miss Voder A T the beginning of the school year the 0 1 Girls’ Glee Club was reorganized, and new officers were elected. The girls chosen were Mary Looney, president; Marian Fitz- patrick, vice-president; Edith Bear, secretary; Marybelle Barrett, treasurer; and Katherine Boucher, pianist. During rehearsals for the operetta, glee club work was discontinued, but practices have since been resumed. The two sub-organizations of the glee club this year were the girls’ sextet and the mixed quartet. The girls in the mixed quartet were Donna Brown, soprano; Erma Messman, alto. 'The two boys were Victor and Gerald War- field. The personnel of the sextet this year in- cludes Clare Stewart and Margaret Morrison, first sopranos; Donna Brown and Betty Stuart, second sopranos; and LaVora Emmett and Evelyn Worley, altos. Cleo Bartcher, a for- mer member of this group, was compelled to drop out because of her heavy curricular work. THE BOYS’ GLEE CLUB T J NDER the able supervision of the music instructor, Miss Ruth Voder, the Boys’ Glee Club has again had a very successful season. At an early meeting the following officers were elected: president, Robert Ferguson; vice-president, Victor Warfield; secretary, Richard Bray; treasurer, Baden Rupert; sergeant-at-arms, Gerald Warfield. Girls’ Sextet: Stewart, Stuart. Emmett, Morrison, Brown, E. Worley Hoys’ Sextet: Traver, Willard, Williamson, Bryant, Barrett, Bray, Bryan. -o fifty-six«■ ▲ THE WHIRLWIND ▲ Club Operetta OPERETTA “BETTY LOU, THE DREAM GIRL” By Geoffrey Morgan and Lida Larrimore Turner. PROBABLY the most successful operetta in recent years was presented on January 14 by the combined glee clubs under Miss Ruth Yoders capable direction. 1 he name is only faintly suggestive of the amusing and absorbing plot and the delightful, “catchy” tunes. Clare Stewart gave a sparkling performance in the title role; this is the second successive year she has carried the lead. Julian Bryant, in the masculine lead, and Victor Warfield, as the humorous “villain,” showed extraordinary dramatic as well as musical talent. Margaret Morrison as Betty Lou’s flirtatious and unscrupulous stepmother gave a fine interpretation of a difficult role and won praise for her lovely mezzo-soprano voice. Mary Looney, in the speaking part of the maid, threw about that character the atmosphere which distinguishes all her performances. Every member of the cast interpreted his character truly and cleverly, and unusual vocal ability—some of it heretofore undiscovered—was displayed. 2 Fifty-Sfvtno A ----------------- —o THE WHIRLWIND a A well-trained vocal chorus ably supported the cast with a nice combination of volume and harmony. A dance chorus of eight girls, coached by Miss Kelly, gave three clever dances in appropriate costumes during the production, and this added greatly to its beauty. Robert Ferguson as business manager, Marian Fitzpatrick as property manager, and Katherine Boucher and Dorothy Smith as accompanists on piano and violin re- spectively, all contributed substantially to the success of the operetta. 1 he value of Miss Voder’s fine coaching cannot be overestimated. With her pleasing disposition she was able to keep the entire group interested throughout the long period of rehearsals, and her own musical talent was reflected in the production. It was under her direction that the operetta was made a financial success as well as a “thing of beauty.” The cast of “Betty Lou”: Betty Lou (herself).....................

We want air!” This plea was truly heartrending, and any passerby would gladly have come dashing to the rescue. Our noble student body president, none other than Ivan Zimmerman, gave a masterly address of welcome to the new members. Bobby Lee, sophomore president, came unabashed to the footlights and delivered his speech. A tour of the building was the undoing of all those unfortunates who claim weak constitutions. Those unlucky souls, however, managed to struggle back to the assembly, where they could be restrained no longer. And let us say this: the “eats committee” did nobly to feed the stampede and live to tell the tale. PAPER STAFF LUNCHEON I he birthday of Mr. Grigsby, the beloved and hard-working print shop supervisor, was the occasion for a delicious noon luncheon on October 15, in the D. S. laboratory. This surprise party was “perpetrated by the print shop gang,” with arrangements in charge of Miss Braden and Laura Margaret Smith. Interest centered upon two large angel food cakes. The staff’s love and appreciation were made known to “Grigs,” who responded with a short, spicy combination of humor and advice. G. A. A. PARTY On October 29, 30, the Girls’ Athletic Association held a Hallowe’en party at the country home of Katherine Boucher. Games, dancing, and stunts were the main events of the evening. While the groups were putting on their stunts in the other rooms, one person went to the kitchen to discover two jugs of cider and a bag of doughnuts out walking. Later the jugs came back, one empty. Refreshments were then enjoyed, and everyone had a lovely time. THE ORDER OF “A” PARTY What a wonderful night for a party! With this thought, the lettermen, all feeling fine and in good spirits after the little exercise with Salem, departed for Tumble Inn. This pleasant little party was held immediately following the Salem-Albany football game and was sponsored by the Order of “A” of Albany High School. During the evening many exciting games were played. A large rubber bathing ball was the recipient of many hard kicks during the game of soccer. Football and baseball were also played, dancing being a side issue. The hall was graciously donated by Mr. and Mrs. Ben Sudtell, who later in the evening acted as chaperones. After light refreshments were served, the guests officially inspected the beautiful new home of Mr. and Mrs. Sudtell. JUNIOR ASSEMBLY The Thanksgiving assembly was presented by the members of the junior class. Baden Rupert, junior president, introduced the program, which included clever read- ings by Maxine Willett and Marian Kennelly, selections by the orchestra, banjo and accordion numbers by Clifford Ames and Leroy Miller, and a tap dance by Barbara Beam accompanied by Charlotte Lamberty. Rev. Patterson of the United Presbyterian Church delivered an appropriate address. After this the fifth grade of Maple School, under the direction of Miss Barbara Morgan, presented a clever health play. •«------------------------------------------------------------------ O Sixty J---------------■— ----------- a THE WHIRLWIND a G. A. A. SKATING PARTY The members of the Girls’ Athletic Association and their friends held a skating party at Lewisburg on December 10. in spite of the damp weather everyone, including the thirty students and four chaperones, had an enjoyable time. COMMERCIAL CLUB CHRISTMAS PARTY On Tuesday evening, December 18, the Commercial Club of the high school held its regular meeting in the form of a Christmas party at the home of Alleen Lineback. Each member present brought some small gift, I hese were then distributed among tile students and afterwards were given to the Red Cross for the benefit of the poor children. A turkey dinner, followed by a musical program, was thoroughly enjoyed by the club. SENIOR ASSEMBLY Following the established precedent, the senior class presented the holiday assembly on December 24. Preceding the main feature, the orchestra played a group of pieces, the delegates from the Older Boys’ Conference gave reports, and the girls’ sextet sang several selections. As a climax to the program an impressive and colorful presentation of “Why the Chimes Rang” was staged. The scores of visiting alumni in the audience expressed their opinion that this, although brief, was one of the outstanding productions in A.H.S. history. GLEE CLUB SKATING PARTY Representatives of the Glee Club, operetta cast, stage managers, and helpers enjoyed an evening of skating at Lewisburg on Wednesday, January 4. The star floor polisher seemed to be “Squeed” Robertson, but it was rumored that Max Rohrbough also had a serious mishap; even Bobby Ferguson was not ex- ceptionally lucky. The rink closed at 10:30, and everyone went “right straight home.” OPERETTA CAST PARTY The members of the operetta cast were entertained at the home of Julian Bryant on January 24. The evening was spent in playing games and in dancing, at the close of which delicious refreshments were served. The entire cast, consisting of twelve persons, was present, and an extremely enjoyable evening was spent by all. Miss Ruth Louise Yoder, director of the operetta, acted as chaperone. SOPHOMORE ASSEMBLY As it has been the annual custom of the members of the sophomore class to stage a Washington’s Birthday assembly, they presented a patriotic program on February 23. There were several songs by individual members of the class as well as by the boys’ sextet. The stately minuet and the lively Virginia reel were reproduced in good style. The orator of the day, the Hon. J. K. Weatherford, spoke on the ever interesting subject — George Washington. Since the occasion also commemorated Abraham Lincoln, the speaker compared the two great national leaders. All in all the program was a huge success, and the sophomores deserve a great deal of credit for the entertainment which they so delightfully presented. 2 O Six y-on  ------------------------ a THE WHIRLWIND a WHAT OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN WILL ENJOY 5ITTING in the lamp-light, watching the fire flicker and die out, I see a vision of the future, an impossible dream, it would seem now, but as the vision becomes clearer and develops in the fiery coals, I see the high school year of 1951 unroll before my eyes. There is a magnificent school with conveniences which are unheard of in this year of 1931. The old red brick high school, which housed so many human destinies and is still dear to the memory of those who spent three happy years within its walls, has been torn down. The night before its destruction crowds were out to gaze for the last time upon the now desolate building. The schoolhouse stood empty and forsaken until someone turned on the lights, and those who had been former students there passed through, identifying many scars on the empty desks and wandering through rooms which had been so familiar to them in days gone by. When they glanced in from the outside, it seemed as if there were some youthful high school celebration in progress, with every window lighted, seeming to hold out eager arms to the crowds outside as though realizing that this was the last night of an eventful life. From the dust of the old building a new modern structure has been erected, a magnificent piece of architecture occupying four blocks with a beautiful park sur- rounding the school. The roof of the building is so constructed that the hundreds of individual airplanes can be easily parked there, while their owners simply take an elevator from the roof down to the main floor of the building. But the studying! My heart leaps with joy as I see how simple this dreaded part of school life has become. First of all there is a complete absence of teachers! The government of the school is entirely conducted by the upperclassmen. Subjects are taught only by the use of the radio, motion pictures, and talkies. For such subjects as history, geography, and English literature there are films. We hear the troubles of Mary Queen of Scots from her own lips. Such famous characters as Queen Elizabeth, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon live and breathe again through the magic art of the screen. And now the bell rings for geography. Again through the wonderland of filmdom we visit the jungles of Africa and eat tropical fruits with the natives of Hawaii. We go to the Alps and enjoy winter sports with the Swiss boys and girls. Again the bell rings. This time it is an English literature class, and the great classics of the ages are unrolled before our eyes. Shakespeare and Milton themselves interpret their classics to us by way of the “talkies.” The crash of a book falling from my lap awakens me. I pick it up. “Our Gov eminent” is printed on the cover. Alas! This civics assignment must be studied in the same way our great grandfather learned his lesson—by concentration and hard work. This gilded dream of lessons acquired without effort may be a possibility for our children’s children, but—after all, who knows? Time alone will tell. —Edith Calavan. £- Sixty-two o ?------------------------- A THE WHIRLWIND a WANDERLUST Corne! I would tempt you to far away, Over the hill and lea.

She weighed the enormous amount of two pounds. She was a very brilliant baby for her size, and her mother laid her in a soup howl while she washed dishes.”—(M. F.) “She grew to be a normal, pretty, healthy child, who ran away from home quite often . . . bought candy and charged it, and stole pickles out of the keg back of the loggers’ cook house.”—(G. B.) “When she was a very small child, Mary had an imaginary companion whom she had christened Camphor. One time her parents took her to a party at a hotel, and while there she talked with Camphor and showed him all the places of interest in the hotel. Upon reaching home that evening she began to cry as if her heart would break. Her mother asked what in the world was the matter. Mary answered that she had left Camphor at the hotel. That was the natural death of Camphor.— (D. S.) “Her two brothers never contributed to her peace of mind; in fact, they were a disturbing element. They had a mania for teasing their little sister, and this never railed to infuriate her. Mary’s temper in those days was something to beware of— it is yet, if it escapes the bonds of control. One day when she was particularly angry at her brother, she picked up a hammer and hurled it at him. Everything would have been all right, but the head came off the hammer and struck him in the head, causing a deep gash which had to be sewed up by a doctor. “Her mother did not scold Mary, who now felt very sorry, because she (Mrs. Smith) was of the opinion that it was good enough for the brother and might teach him to be more considerate in the future.”—(C. S.) “She started to school at Brownsville when she was five years of age. It was there that her bad luck began. First, she broke her arm while playing follow-the-leader with her brother. Next, her mother had to go to the hospital for over a month. Man- had to miss school for a while, but she did have an opportunity to go to the picnic with the others on the last day of school. To her discouragement, however, she fell into the river, which was five feet deep. She was rescued but had to go home for dry clothes.”—(J. S.) “Before proceeding further it would be wise to attempt a brief description of the girl herself and a few of her personal characteristics. She is five feet four inches in height and weighs 122 pounds. Her hair is fair and wavy and is usually drawn into a low roll at the back. Her eyes are large and blue with very dark lashes and brows. “T he stranger at first receives a general impression of demureness, but may I here and now correct this erroneous idea? May 1 cite an instance, needless to say in her earlier life, when she kicked so hard when her father attempted to turn her across his knee that to this day he bears a scar on his nose. Mary’s chief characteristics, I believe, are humor, capability, and genuine intelligence.”—(B. S.) “Mary has traveled in Mexico, California, Washington, and Oregon. She has visited Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as many other towns and cities of lesser importance.”—(A. 1).) “Mary intends to devote her complete future (after graduation) to the study of aviation. She intends to be an aviatrix and to travel extensively. She often remarks that her great ambition is to go to China.”—(T. C.) “Considering her excellent character, her charming personality, and her past successes, I feel quite justified in saving that hers will be a most successful and happy life.”— (L. M. S.) Sixty-tour o ?--------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a FUTURISTIC THOUGHT A 1980 version of the Albany High School Constitution, by Edith Calavan, with amendments by Prof. R. A. Buchanan. PREAMBLE Whereas, the present constitution of Albany High School is obsolete and antique and has not kept pace with the modern trend of events, we have taken upon ourselves the responsibility of writing a more fitting and appropriate one. ARTICLE 1. Section 1. It shall be ordained that school dances be encouraged to the utmost for the generations to come; that caps and gowns shall not be thought proper for high school graduating classes and that they shall not in any way be considered.

Every girl in high school belongs to the league and aids in making it a highly successful organization. This year many things were accomplished by the Girls’ League, as it was very active in school work. It managed the serving of a five-cent hot dish to the students each noon, a practice established only this year but very popular because of the price and the quality of the food. Elma Morton and Gladys Meyers directed this service in both the Madison school and the high school. The lunches were very appetizing, as the menu was changed every day, only one dish being served at one time, but always a hot soup or a vegetable. The rest room was also attractively redecorated in a color scheme of green and black. Among the most prominent of the other activities of this organization was the presentation of three one-act plays on the evening of December 3—“The Lonely Hearth,” “Twelve Good Men and True,” and “The Piper’s Pay.” Elma Morton represented the organization at the annual meeting of Girls’ League officers held at the University of Oregon, January 16 and 17, and Gertrude Mishler was our representative at the annual exposition at Oregon State College, February 13 and 14. They returned with many new ideas which we hope will be of benefit to the Girls’ League. At the close of school the Albany High School girls who are considered foremost in character, scholarship, leadership, and service will have their names engraved on the Girls’ League silver cup. The girls who received this honor in 1930 were Mildred Emmett, Mary Dannals, and Dorothy Glann, seniors; Clare Stewart and Elma Morton, juniors; and Jane Goodale, sophomore. The officers for the school year 1930-1931 were Gertrude Mishler, president; Virginia Trapp, vice-president; Jane Bezzant, secretary; Elma Morton, treasurer; Mrs. Childs and Miss Karhuvaara, advisers. The girls of the league feel that much has been accomplished this year, and they hope that next year may be even more successful. Sixty-ssvfn Oo--------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a Zimmerman Bickman, G. Magers Senders STUDENT BODY REPORT PPROXIMATELY' four hundred students were enrolled in the Senior High School for the year 1930-1931. Since the bus lines have made Albany more accessible, many more students have registered from surrounding communities. At the beginning of the school year, the sophomores were given a royal reception by the upperclassmen. The students who were there to welcome the new class had a very enjoyable time, and the sophomores were made to “feel at home.” By taxing the organizations giving entertainments we have the payments on the new stage practically completed. A stage fund was created for this purpose last year and is now steadily growing. As usual the student body has enjoyed many assemblies and “pep” meetings. This year an unusually large amount of school spirit existed in school, and the student body thoroughly supported all the athletic teams of the school. Burt Brown Barker, vice-president of the University of Oregon, gave an interesting talk to the student bodv on January 7. Mr. Barker talked on his experience in trying to find “East.” Ivan Zimmerman, Hague Callister, Elma Morton, Ethel Magers, and Dorothy Hoflich represented the high school at the Annual Conference of High School Students held at the University of Oregon. Delegates sent to the exposition at Oregon State College were Bruce Senders, Bob Ferguson, Clare Stewart, Gertrude Mishler, and Cleo Bartcher. 'Ehrough the splendid cooperation of the faculty, students, and officers, the year 1930-1931 has been a most successful one. The Student Body officers elected for the year were Ivan Zimmerman, president; George Bickman, vice-president; Ethel Magers, secretary; Bruce Senders, treasurer. 2 Sixty-right------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a Zimmerman Senders Hudson Ferguson Kropp Conn STUDENT COUNCIL C HE members of the Student Council elected for the school year 1930-1931 were Ivan Zimmerman, president; Martin Kropp, first vice-president; Robert Fer- guson, second vice-president; Betty Conn, secretary; Bruce Senders, treasurer; and Air. Hudson, faculty adviser. It is the duty of this organization to attend to the business of the school and keep it running smoothly with perfect coordination. In order to perform this task the council has members who represent the student body in general, and who are inter- ested in seeing that student affairs are carried on in the most efficient manner pos- sible. This organization, with the cooperation of the students, endeavors to carry on the business of the school in a manner which it believes to be satisfactory to all concerned. In order to accomplish this purpose students are permitted to bring any matters which they wish discussed or acted upon to the council at any of the regular meetings, where these are carefully considered and deliberated upon before any action is taken by the student body. Another of the duties of the council is to take care of such business as the choosing of delegates to represent the high school at the numerous conventions, con- ferences, and expositions held annually throughout the state. It also does its best to settle the school problems that are constantly arising, pay many of the bills in- curred by the school, and select the important committees which are needed from time to time to settle school problems. Sixty-mint 5 --------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a GIRLS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Ol LTHOUGH the Girls’ Athletic Association is one of the most recently estab- C l lished organizations of the school, it is recognized as one of the most promi- nent. Its chief aim is to promote leadership and good sportsmanship among the girls of Albany High School. To become eligible for membership, a girl must earn ten points. This can be done by making a first team in some sport or two second teams in two sports. This means that all members must be girls who have actually taken part in athletics. The sports in which the girls participate are volleyball, basketball, baseball, track, and tennis. They also learn clogging, folk-dancing, and stunts during the year. The four awards that can be won by the girls during their four years in school are for fifty, one hundred, one hundred and fifty and two hundred points. These are given by the State Physical Education Association upon the payment of twenty-five cents, with the exception of the one hundred and fifty point numeral, which is pre- sented by the high school. These awards, since they are not easily won, are greatly cherished by the girls who receive them. Besides the gymnasium work there are other activities of the Girls’ Athletic Asso- ciation. Each year the girls present some sort of a program to show what has been accomplished during the year and to give to other students an idea of what the associa- tion does. Besides this presentation the girls have regular monthly meetings, during which a short program is presented, with members taking part. Refreshments are served, and new members are initiated. The officers for this year are Edith Bear, president; Barbara Beam, vice-president; Thelma Fisk, secretary-treasurer; and Miss Marjorie Kelly, instructor and adviser. 2 -O StvenlyA THE WHIRLWIND A 5- COMMERCIAL CLUB Commercial Club of Albany High School, which was organized in 1923, s an honorary society within the commercial department. This club, one of the most prominent in the school, is an organization of all high school students who have won an award for proficiency in typing or shorthand or have received a grade of 2 or more in bookkeeping. Until the last two years, students taking bookkeeping were not eligible for mem- bership in the club, but after many discussions, it was decided that bookkeeping was a commercial subject as much as either typing or shorthand. The membership is now between seventy-five and one hundred and is increasing rapidly. The purpose of the club is to stimulate interest in the commercial department. Many of the students have a period in Mr. Hudson’s office, where they acquire some experience as an office helper, which will help them in their later business careers. Because of the fine spirit of cooperation between the members, the Commercial Club has always been one of the most outstanding in the school. Mrs. Mabel Penland, typing instructor, is at the head of the Commercial Club. The other teachers of commercial subjects are Miss Charlotte Thayer, business English and shorthand; Mr. Sidney B. Miller, bookkeeping, commercial law, and salesmanship. The officers of the club are as follows: Gladys Meyers, president; Harold Whitney, vice-president; Evelyn Arnold, secretary; Max Rohrbough, treasurer. 2 Srvfnty-on s THE DRAMAT CLUB HE Dr am at Club this year has been very active both in high school drama and in community dramatics. The Dramat Club dramatized the play, “Three Pills in a Bottle,” and they entered this one-act drama in the forensic contest among the four valley schools: Corvallis, Eugene, Salem and Albany. This contest was held in April. Many members of the Dramat Club took parts in grange entertainments, church plays, and other community affairs. This indicates that the club has accomplished its purpose, which is to arouse interest in dramatics and to present plays that are whole- some and entertaining. Other members of this club have given numerous one-act plays at various times. Several members were also in the senior play and were a credit to their class and to the club. Fifteen sophomores, ten juniors, and five seniors were taken into the club at the beginning of the year. The officers elected to head the organization for the year were: president, Sam Bikman; vice-president, Marie Bragg; secretary, Glendon McCrary; treasurer, Richard Stockton. 2 Srvrnty-lwoo------------------------ a THE WHIRLWIND a THE DEBATE LEAGUE A LL members of both interclass and interscholastic debate teams are eligible to membership in the Debate League. The purpose of the league is to foster interest in debate, public speaking, and forensics in general. Many of the members have enrolled in the new public speaking class conducted under the direction of Mrs. Childs. Officers elected this year are Hague Callister, president; Clare Stewart, vice- president; Laura Margaret Smith, secretary; and George Bikman, treasurer. With these officers and with an active membership, accomplishments of the league for this year have been numerous. It sponsored the cycle of class debates which were finally won by the seniors, with the three lettermen from last year acting as student chairmen. It also helped in arranging for the interscholastic debates. Debate League members who have w-on membership and special notice in the National Forensic League, of which Albany High School is a chapter, are Clare Stewart, Degree of Excellency; Laura Margaret Smith, Degree of Honor; and Hague Callister, Isabel Van Waning, and George Bickman. For membership in this associ- ation these students must have earned thirty points in forensics, must be in the upper half of their class, and must be juniors or seniors. Only three new members are admitted each year, and as points are won only bv active work in debates or inter- scholastic oratorical and extemporaneous speaking contests, admittance into this league is not easily gained. As a recognition of distinctive service in this organization, pins which are paid for from the funds of the Debate League are awarded to the members. These pins are set with jewels in accordance with the degrees won by the participants. -i SfVsntx-threfQUILL AND SCROLL LBANV High School’s chapter of Quill and Scroll, international honorary society for high school journalists, was organized in the journalism depart- ment only last year. T hrough graduation but two members, Sam Bikman and Laura Margaret Smith, were left at the opening of the fall term. As soon as it was possible to judge the new journalism students, ten new members were chosen and approved by the national council. Those chosen were Jimmie Clinton, Margaret Wood, Woodson Bennett, Gertrude Brazel, Dorothy Hoflich, Virginia 1 ripp, Marian Fitzpatrick, Robert Ferguson, Isabel Van Waning, and Edith Bear. Election of officers resulted as follows: president, Sam Bikman; vice-president, Dorothy Hoflich; secretary, Isabel Van Waning; treasurer, Gertrude Brazel. Miss Minerva Braden, journalism instructor and faculty adviser for the paper, has also capably served as adviser for the chapter. The initiation and banquet was held in March. Throughout the year members of the chapter have submitted very creditable copy to the National High School Awards contest and to four national Quill and Scroll contests. I he organization feels that it has done much toward accomplishing its purpose— that of furthering good journalism in the high school—particularly through the work which its members have done on the paper and the annual. 2 O Seventy-jourBOYS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION C ?HE Boys’ Athletic Association is an organization which represents all the boys v-' in Albany High School. It is run for the purpose of putting on cleaner and better athletics and to give its best support to all athletic teams in the high school. From this organization comes a major portion of the funds which are used to carry on athletics in the school. The association governs the granting of letters and stripes for the sports carried on by the school teams. Officers for this year were elected in the fall. They are as follows: President...........................................Russell Haynes Vice-President........................................Oren Sudtell Secretary.....................................Donald McCrary Treasurer.....................................Harold Whitney Seventy-fiveORDER OF “A” Officers for 1930-1931 President...................................MARTIN KrOFP Vice-President..............................Russell Haynes Secretary-Treasurer.........................Or EN SUDTBLL Order of “A” is an honorary society of Albany High School.

It is the purpose of this order to create an interest in all athletics and to act as student supervisors over all athletic functions. 1 he Order of A emphasizes the necessity of good scholastic standing among athletes and is promoted by some of the best students in the high school. During recent years this organization has become very prominent in school activities.

Coach Tucker’s work in Albany has had a beneficial influence upon those who have been under him. His plan of physical education, which calls for vigorous, wholesome living, and his winning personality, have won a place for him in the hearts of the faculty and students of this school. In all sports he has stood for honest, clean sports- manship. Through the economic use of funds Coach Tucker has been able to secure the best equipment possible for his teams.

The turnout was good, with more than three full teams in suits, and Coach Tucker started energetically to whip into shape a team which could face the strenuous season that was to follow. Orcn Sudtcll was elected manager at a meeting of the Athletic Association, and everything was ready to go. Albany vs. Brownsville Albany High School, using only four plays, scrimmaged the Brownsville team, which was a strong “B” team, as the opener for the season. Paul Bates, Albany’s end, grabbed a knocked-down pass and dashed over the line for the only touchdown of the game. The score was 7-0. Albany vs. Tillamook I he trip of the season was taken to Tillamook for the second game of the season. Tillamook won 39-0 in a better game than the score would indicate. The Bulldogs were handicapped by cramps from the long ride. Mr. Hudson accompanied the boys, and Dan Zeh drove the school bus. Albany vs. Hill The Albany Bulldogs lost a hard game to the Hill Military Academy of Portland at Albany on October 17. 1 he score was 13-13 in the last minutes of play when a speedy Military hack intercepted a pass and ran sixty yards for a touchdown. The final score was 20-13. Albany vs. Eugene Albany went to Eugene and lost 19-0 on a field of mud. The Eugene scores came in the first half, but in the last half Albany rallied, taking the ball to the shadow of the opponents’ goal, but not quite scoring. One of the Eugene tallies was a result of a returned punt by Earl Vossen, a former Albany player. Albany vs. Cottags Grove Cottage Grove defeated Albany 6-0 in one of those games where one of the teams is not playing the kind of a game that it can. A situation unusual to football resulted in this game. Because of a time out simultaneous with the end of the game, Albany was allowed one more play, so a pass was chosen. Clinton passed to Zimmerman, who carried the ball to the ten-yard line before he was downed. A one-chance-in-a-thousand almost resulted in a score which might have won the game. Albany vs. Corvallis Corvallis showed its superiority for another season by mastering the Albany team in a night game played on Bell field, Corvallis. The game was a charity game spon- sored by the Elks Lodge. The score was 40-0. Albany’s only near approach to a score was in the closing minutes of the game. Merritt threw a long pass to Clinton, and this netted 45 yards before he was stopped on the eleven-yard line. Eighty-two o 3 THE WHIRLWIND -s ▲ Albany vs. Springfield With renewed “pep Albany defeated Springfield by the use of line plunges, of which McClain was the principal ball carrier. The score was 14-0. Albany vs. Salem Albany lost to the strong Salem team 42-7. Albany was one of the very few teams that succeeded in scoring on the Salem outfit. Albany’s score was the result of a pass from Merritt to Bennett, which put the ball on the ten-yard line. Then a line plunge by McClain carried the ball over for a touchdown. Albany vs. Lebanon The biggest game of the season was played with Lebanon at Albany on Thanks- giving Day. The game was closely contested, with Lebanon fighting all the way. Lebanon at one time carried the ball to Albany’s three-yard line before the advance was stopped. Superior playing of the Albany line resulted in two touchdowns. The final score was 13-0. The season was not so successful as to victories; however, no serious injuries were sustained, and Albany showed fine sportsmanship throughout the season. During the season the “B” team of Albany played several games with Corvallis and Philomath. Through them Coach Tucker has built fine material for next year. At a special assembly the letters were awarded to seventeen men. Nine of these men graduate, leaving eight lettermen to form the nucleus for the next year’s team.

H.S. BASKETBALL, ’31 I HE Albany basketball team opened the hoop season under a handicap, having only two lettermen from the 1930 squad in the lineup. The Bulldogs will lose live out of the seven lettermen from the 1931 varsity, but prospects for next year are brighter, as many of this year’s second team have shown real stuff in all of their games. I he Bulldog hoopmen started with two practice games with Sweet Home. Al- though the Albany quint won both games, they showed ragged team-work and inex- perience. The score of the first game was Albany 31, Sweet Home 30. The second game ended A.H.S. 28, Sweet Home 22. 1 he next week Springfield invaded the Blue and Gold camp and walked away with a 36 to 20 victory. The traditional rivalry between A.H.S. and Corvallis was resumed when the Spartans came to Albany to determine the supremacy in the hoop game. The Maroon and Blue squad emerged, holding the long end of a score of 33 to 15. The return game found two determined teams on the floor. Albany made a fine comeback but tired a little at the finish, and again Corvallis won, 26 to 17. 1'he Blue and Gold second string played two whirlwind games with the Corvallis second string. In the first game Albany led 12 to 5 at the half, but the Spartan reserves made a brilliant comeback, ending the game 21 to 17 for Corvallis. The second game ended Albany 12, Corvallis 19. The Bulldog basketeers again hit a streak of bad luck in the Lebanon series. The second team started the night off with a crashing victory, winning 38 to 10. The varsity five could not overcome the terrific pace of the Lebanon hoopmen and lost 32 to 24. The final game again went to Lebanon by a lead of one point. This was the closest and one of the hardest games of the season. The score at the final was 15 to 15, and this necessitated a three-minute overtime period. During this period both the Bulldogs and the Lebanon five sank one field goal, but Keith, rangy center, tossed a free throw for the one winning point, the final score being A.H.S. 16, Lebanon 17. 1 he series with Salem found the Albany quintet almost helpless under the terrific drives of the Vikings, runners-up for state championship. Both games were one-sided, the first ending 52 to 18, and the second game 45 to 11. For the first quarter in the last game the Bulldogs showed their real fighting spirit, and almost held them score for score. Finally the Vikings settled down to their uncanny, machine-like advances and scored at will. In the last game on their own floor, the Albany basketball team met for the first time the aggregation from the Hill Military Academy at Portland. This was another close game, the half ending with Hill one point ahead. The cadets came back the second half with their battery in full blast, and the final gun ended the game with A.H.S. 17, Hill 21. The second team, in their last game, won from the Cadet second team 23 to 15, with White and Sudtell leading the scoring. Behind but still game, the Bulldogs took defeat from Springfield again, in the roughest battle of the season. From the opening until the final it was nothing more than a high class brawl. The lead swung back and forth with the result hanging in the balance. Although there were few fouls called, both Coach 'Fucker and Coach May agreed that it was a good spring training for football. 'File half found Albany leading 17 to 16, but the Bulldogs could not find the basket in the last half, with the result that Springfield won 27 to 21. o Kizhty-jour a THE WHIRLWIND a Templeton, Mgr.; Clinton, Bennett, Bikman, Haynes, Merritt, McClain, Williamson, Coach Tucker Basketball Lettermen 1931 Schedule December 16—Albany 39 Sweet Home 38 January 7—Albany 29 Sweet Home 22 16—Albany 20 Springfield 36 23—Albany 15 Corvallis 33 30—Albany 24 Lebanon 32 February 6—Albany 18 Salem 52 13—Albany 16 Lebanon 17 16—Albany 17 Corvallis 26 19—Albany 11 Salem 45 2-1—Albany 17 Hill Military 21 March 6—Albany 21 Springfield 27 o — Eighty-fiveo------------------------ a THE WHIRLWIND a Callister Bickman, G. Poi.i.ak Bikman, S. Senders THE A. H.S. TENNIS TEAM (' f ENNIS reached a peak in Albany High School during the 1930 season. For the third consecutive year our tennis team won the Willamette Valiev cham- pionship, winning five matches out of seven and sweeping all valley competition before it. For several years the team has been recognized as one of the best among the high schools in the state, and last season’s record further strengthens its hold on state laurels. Team members who won letters were Sam Bikman, Hague Callister, George Bikman, Bruce Senders, Bob Poliak, and Harold Montgomery. Montgomery was the only graduating member of the team. The scores in the Willamette Valley matches were as follows: At University High 4; Albany 3. At Salem 1 ; Albany 4. At Corvallis 1 ; Albany 5. At Albany 4; Silverton 1. At Corvallis 2; Albany 5. At Albany 2; Salem 3. At University High 0; Albany 6. Although Albany lost once to University High and to Salem, the total scores of the matches gave Albany a decided advantage, and since our team had beaten Cor- vallis twice and Silverton once, it justly claimed the valley championship. At the end of the season the team took a trip to Southern Oregon, invading Grants Pass and Medford. Although Albany lost both matches, the team received a great deal of experience, which will be of much benefit during the coming season. The outlook this year is unusually bright, since five lettermen are back to consti- tute the team, and another championship is predicted for Albany. Matches have been scheduled with Salem, Silverton, Eugene, University High, Corvallis, and the O.S.C. Rooks. 2 -S Eighty-six«■------------------------- a THE WHIRLWIND a 1930 BASEBALL j FTER a lapse of two years, baseball was again made a major sport. The - • team made an excellent showing, winning five out of the nine games played Those teams defeated were Corvallis, 7-6; Brownsville, 3-0; Lebanon, 10-3; Albany College, 7-0; and 'Pangent, 4-2. Rupert and Warfield each pitched a shutout game, Rupert also getting credit for the Lebanon and Corvallis games. Mitchell, a southpaw, defeated Tangent. Bates played every game behind the bat, and the pitchers were well supported with an infield consisting of Hauswirth at first, Marks at second, Clinton at shortstop, and Merritt at third. Merritt went to first when Hauswirth was injured, Watson taking third. The outfield played the entire season with only one substitution, as the fielders, Vossen in left, Haskin in center, and McCrary in right worked very well together. Bates, Marks, Clinton, Haskin, and McCrary played the whole of each of the nine games in their respective positions. Those earning letters were Lloyd Bates, Jim Clinton, Bill Haskin, Armin Hauswirth, Bob Marks, Don McCrary, Abe Mer- ritt, Harold Mitchell, Baden Rupert, Earl Vossen, Gerald Warfield, and Ed Watson. Hauswirth, Watson, and Bates graduated, while Haskin, Vossen, and Warfield have moved away. Coach Tucker has the nucleus of a good team for 1931, and thirty-five have signified their intention of turning out for the squad. Much credit is due Coach Ira Tucker for his efforts with the baseball team, as he was also forced to coach track at the same time. It is hoped that this year some system will be devised whereby he will be able to concentrate his efforts upon base- ball alone. Eighty-stvfn oo ▲ THE WHIRLWIND A Clifford Stewart Van Waning Kelly Meyers Reiley Stuart Magers GIRLS’ BASKETBALL HK girls’ basketball season opened with a bang! The juniors and the seniors Vly were both determined that they were going to be the champions of the school. The seniors were a little more determined, because this was their last chance at high school basketball championships, and it was through this determination that the seniors defeated the juniors in two hard-fought games, both by a one-point margin. Eight senior girls “went out” for basketball. Because they were all first team players, Miss Kelly, the girls’ physical educational instructor, did not choose any substitutes for the senior team. Instead, two of the girls played only a half in each game. The girls on the championship team were as follows: Nadyne Reiley, Florence Clifford, Gladys Meyers, forwards; Clare Stewart, Betty Stuart, guards; Isabelle Van Waning, Edith Bear, Ethel Magers, centers. Those who were chosen all star players arc Nadyne Reiley, Joyce Bino, for- wards; Clare Stewart, Nellie Fisk, guards; Barbara Beam, Ethel Magers, centers. This year two new sports for girls have been introduced. They are tennis and swimming. Several years ago tennis was one of the popular sports among the girls, but in recent years it has not been so important. However, it is again stepping forward and taking its old place at the head of sports. Swimming has never before been taught in this school, but if the w’eather permits, the girls will receive instructions in sw’im- ming at Bryant Park.
