THE SCHOOL BOARD
The members of the school board have served from varying terms of
two to forty years, As far as is known, Mr. J. K. Weatherford, Sr., has

other man in the state, This unusual record is certainly to be commended.
Among the recent notable achievements of this body has been the
innovation of the Smith-Hughes agricultural course. This new curriculum
has proved most popular among the boys from the agricultural districts.
The course, which gives the farm-inclined boys practical knowledge in stock-

Besides this the school board has effect- i

townspeople and the school administration
and has avoided many of the disturbances
characteristic of other cities and their school

We contributed material for glee club, debate, and dramatlcs, and prepared for a successful
The spotlight af history turns to the brightest year of all, the reflections of which dazzle
ull who look upon it! Leading the galaxy of stars are Oren Sudtell, president, Charlotte
lamberty, vice-president, Annette Ruthruff, secretary-treasurer, This year the seniors have
turned out tn large numbers for football and basketball. The girls have won the basketball
and volley ball championship for the third time. The managers for the football and basket-
ball tearns have been drawn from the senior classf-and also from the official high school

The Senior Class Will
We, the class of l932, sincerely wish to leave to others some of the knowledge and
information that we have gathered through four years of effort. Our Albany High days are
drawing to an end, and in a few short years Albany High graduates will be known in all our
land. Some of us will strive for a higher education, others will enter into life differently, and
some few of us may be lost to the world in which we have gained our experience. Therefore,
we do make this will, we hope, to leave with the future classes our good will and friend-
Article One: To everyone left behind we wish a fond farewell and a sincere wish for
continued good luck.
Article Two: To the class of '33 we will the title of "Senior" and the job of upholding
the dignity and honor of it, realizing, of course, that its members will never gain a greater
height of honor, glory, and learning than that to which we, the class of '32, have already
Article Three: To the members of the faculty, who played a very important part in our
schooling, we express a sincere wish that maybe sometime they may have another class at
Article Four: To the freshmen and sophomores we voice the hope that someday they
may be the beaming light that we have been.
Article Five: Individual members of our class do bequeath the following:
I. I, Sam Bikman, leave to my brother George the ability to edit.
2. I, "Dink" Templeton, bequeath my ability as "trainer" to Bruce Fowler, and my
name of "Taxi driver" to Howard Atkeson.
3. We, the Unholy Three--Sudtell, Templeton, and Whitney-do transfer our powers
of leadership to "Tiny" McKechnie.
4, l, Esther McKnight, will my ability to "get" editors to Nadyne Bowman,
5. l, Marion Kennelly, do impart some of my ability to write, to Pat Hutchins and
also my blonde hair and blue eyes to Cleo Fender.
6. Owing to the great carrying capacity of "Bozo," my ancient and honorable bone-
shaker, I do donate to my brother, Robert Templeton, the said contraption in the hope that
it will bring him good luck and loads.
WILLIAM LLOYD TEMPLETON,
7. I, Annette Ruthruff, do bequeath my coyness to Frances Glaisyer.
8. l, Maxine Willett, bestow my seventh period "pssst-ing" to Maurice Wright.
9. We, the Giggling Triumvirate---Lamberty, Beam, and Trappgleave our success in
"getting around" Mr. Hudson to anyone who needs it,
IO, l, Kenneth Curry, cede to Mr. Umphrey my oversize feet and my ability to welcome
new girls to school.
I I, I, Bob Ferguson, leave some of my tendency for big wards to Paul Bates,
l2, I, Baden Rupert, do surrender my ability to hand out gum to Jimmie Davis.
l3. l, Lloyd Porter, furnish my two patented curling irons to Bill Moule in case he
should lose his.
I4. l, Vera Martin, leave my English class giggle to Morris Dowd.
l5. I, Joe Tate, bequeath, bestow, give, hand over, contribute, leave, and donate my
ability to sleep in salesmanship class to anyone who can get away with it.
We, the class of '32 do affix our hand and seal to this will on the 3rd day of June, l932.
wsu- I nw
By Seymour Scandle
Well, all I know is what I heard at the last sewing circle, but be that as it is, I am
now touring the country for Silent Soup, Inc
The other day I stopped at Seattle, where I heard Dr. Billie Templeton lecture on the
advantages of having a zipper on your appendicitis operation. The talk was good, but he
uttered several cutting remarks.
On the street in front of my hotel I saw three white-clad figures. They looked so
Iamiliar that I threw my cigar butt into the gutter. Just as I expected, one of the men
stooped to pick it up, and then I knew that I had found Ed Dooley, an old schoolmate of mine,
Xlilith him were Jim Arthur, city garbage inspector, and Del Burkhart, first assistant broom
I was greatly touched Iseventy-five cents apiece! by these former schoolmates, but I
bade them good bye and continued to my hotel.
Whom should I meet in the lobby but Pete Whitney and John Conser. They were in
the travelling salesman business for themselves, so they said, but they couldn't stop to talk,
because they were in a hurry to buy some lead for their gold bricks.
I was at a loss as to what I should do to amuse myself when Virginia Trapp, operator
of the hotel, told me that the Duedall brothers were in the vaudeville at the Fox Hollymount.
I decided to QO, consequently the beginning of the show found me in a seat on the main
floor. l enjoyed the vaudeville, but as an added attraction Evelyn Worley sang a selection
from the Opera "HalIerloudski!"
Since I had to travel along, I left the next morning for Portland on a Pacific Grey-
hound bus, the driver of which was Joe Tate, an old friend of mine.
Learning when in Portland that Mr. and Mrs. Oren Sudtell, the farmer Charlotte Lamb-
afrty, were leaving for China, I hurried to the dock to bid them bon voyage. Oren, the lead-
ing banker of Portland, asked me to come on board and look over his staterooms. I became
so interested that I began a thorough examination of the boat. In the engine room I saw Bill
Barrett repairing one of the engines. Just before I left, I met Captain Howard Bever.
I decided to see o baseball game that afternoon. Imagine my surprise to see the fleet-
footed Perry Long playing shortstop for Portland. Gilbert Faxon managed the team.
That evening I met Barbara Beam at the Eatalot cafe. She was overioyed at having
won a prize in a Steamo cigar contest. At the next table I saw Robert Penland, the great
radio expert, and his wife, the former Viola Robertson of the i932 class.
The next day I left for Reno, thinking that Rupert's Restaurant might order some of
my goods, When I arrived, I was told that the owner, Baden Rupert, was out at lunch. I
therefore, began to look around the town. On one of the largest buildings I saw a sign read-
ing L. Misner, Divorce Lawyer. Since this was a chance to get out of the sun, I hurried up
to his office. When I stepped into the waiting room ,whom should I see but Sam Bikman
and his wife, Esther McKnight Bikman, waiting to get renovated. This pained me so much
that I went out to dance away my troubles at the nearest night club. The owner of the club,
Alta Dawson, introduced me to one of the successes from my hometown. I-Ie was none other
than Kenneth Curry, who was making his living as a gigolo.
Concluding my business in Reno, I flew to San Francisco in Bill Anderson's private plane.
While standing on the street corner, I sow a twelve--cylinder Packard roll past driven
by Pauline Ashton. I learned that she was living on the fat of the land, as she had married
Frankie Bolton. At the village Intellectual smelter lcommanly called the University of Calif-
ornual I met Heze Burkhart. I-le was in a hurry, tar he had on engagement to talk on how
he had made his success.
I had intended to go to Albany, where l make my home, to rest my nerves and con-
template on how my schoolmates were making their successes. I guess, however, I had
better make out the check for my alimony and ga feed the wolf at the front door, so l'll be
THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1932
Motto: The horizon widens as we climb,
Colors: Sky blue and white.
Flowers: Cecil Brunner roses and sweet peas.

The juniors have been able to give a pretty good account of themselves
ever since they entered high school, Although there were not many acti-
vities in which they could participate during their freshman year, they were
able to attain good honor standings.
When sophomores, though they were the "lower classmenf' they show-
ed that they had talent and ability among their number. Several partici-
pated in athletics, while others were in debate, glee club, and other argarii-
:lotions All in all, they made a good start in Senior I-ligh, o
This year the juniors had the honor of having one of their nlgmber-
tion. Loren Patterson and David Mcliencknie served as good "ballasts"
in the '3l football lineup. Although Everett Richards did not go out in the
fall, he did in the spring practice, but unluckily he received a broken arm
on the first day Dick Barnes, a newfcomer, played a good game of basket-
ball this year.
The masculine lead of the operetta was taken by Julian Bryant, while
Charlotte Trickey had one ofthe supporting roles.
This year the juniors had the honor of having one of their number,
namely, Marybelle Barrett, chosen as carnival queen. They also had two
representatives on the district and Willamette Valley champion debate
team---Lois l-lartsock and Leon Muller.
It can be truly said that this has been a most enjoyable year for the
juniors, but they are eagerly looking forward to next year when they will
be seniors, and can surpass all that they have done for A. H. S. this year.

Central Freshman Class
As the Central freshman class of i932 will soon be only a memory to
Central, we wish happiness and progress to the future freshmen.
Soon after the school year had started, the Central freshmen were
organized under the leadership of l-larold Conn, president, Ralph Apple-
gate, vice-president, John Carnegie, secretary and treasurer, Mr. Palmer,
As many of these were promoted to the Senior l-ligh School at mid-
term, the Central freshmen again organized under the leadership of Leonard
Robertson, president, John Carnegie, vice-president, Willie Frager, secretory
and treasurer, Mrs. Vandell' adviser, with lris Snyder as reporter.
Some of the various organizations of the school year were the fresh-
man girl's group, the girls' volley ball and basketball team, the bays' basket-
ball team, For emergencies a fire squad was chosen.
One especially memorable event was the freshman party which was
held a few weeks after school had started. Although many of the "freshies"
were strangers to each other, they left with a feeling of friendship.
The outstanding event was the tea, given in honor of the mothers of
the Girls' Group. Under the supervision of Miss Morgan the girls arranged
a picturesque play dating back to the colonial period of l732, when Wash-
ington and his party were in full swing. The girls were very lovely in their
quaint costumes and fluffy wigs. Miss Thompson of Albany College assist-
ed as pianist, and all the freshman girls sincerely appreciated her contri-
bution of time and effort, Refreshments were later served by the girls.
The freshmen look forward to next year when they will be able to at-
tend school with the upper classmen as full-fledged sophomores.

For fuel we use pure friendliness. We shall try to keep climbing through
the sky of lite, making new records as we go. This should not be hard for

We shall always strive to leave o broad trail ot good will behind us. lt

There have been three notable "air meets" this year. They were held
October l4, December ll, and February l2. All the members ot the Madison
Air Squadron came to these meets happy ond went home happier.
On Washington's birthday we had a program, and afterwards some

The Albany debate teams opened a very successful season with the fol-
lowing orators: affirmative, Martha Bibb, first speaker, Jane Goodale, first
speaker, Lois Hartsock, second speaker. Negative, first speaker, Bill Bar-
rett, second speaker, Roberta Bennett, second speaker, Leon Muller.
The affirmative team defeated Philomath and Lebanon but lost to Cor-
vallis. The negative team defeated Monmouth, Corvallis, Philomath, and
Lebanon. These victories gave Albany the championship of this section,
ln the district contest the affirmative lost to Toledo, 2-l, but the nega-
tive won a 3-O victory over Dallas. This made four points for Albany, mak-
ing her the district champion.
The affirmative team defeated Eugene for the Willamette valley
championship, and the negative overwhelmed Milwaukie for the Northwest
ln the semi-finals contest held at Ashland the negative defeated Ash-
land High School. On May 6 our negative was awarded a unanimous deci-
sion of 3-O over Chiloquin, and the Albany High School debate team was
declared Oregon State Champions,
The Albany High School Bancl
The Albany High School bancl was
organized in l9l3. The band consisted
ofa membership of about twenty-five and
was one of the largest in the state. Mr.
E. A. Hudson, now principal of the high
school, was the first director.
ln l9l4 the band had about thirty
members with J F Lau as conductor. Mr
Lau stayed until l9l7.
In l9l7 the band was reorganized
under the direction and leadership of Prof
fessor E. A. Moses.
ln l92O Mr Perfect, a graduate of
Stockholm University of Music, was di-
t rector, Next Mr. Edwin Wetmore acted
l as director for three years until Professor
Nicholls took over the leadership,
The fall of l924 saw the band under
the leadership of Mr. Nicholls. The band
has progressed steadily under the able baton ot Professor Nicholls until at
this time it is champion of the state,
The Albany l-ligh School band won second prize in the Oregon State
Band Contest sponsored by the national honorary music fraternity on the
Oregon State campus in l925, l926, l927, and l928,
The annual contest in l929 was held in Portland. Albany won first
place in Class B, and immediately money was raised to send the band to the
national contest. That year the contest was held in Denver, so that as a
result the boys enjoyed a wonderful trip, making the entire journey by train.
Although the band made an excellent showing, it did not capture a place
It was one of the smallest organizations entered.
In l93O the band advanced one class and entered class A. Again the
jinx held good, and another second place cup was added to the list of trof
The year of l93O-l93l was the biggest year in the history of Albany
band. At the annual contest the band placed first in class A. This rates the
Albany band as the best high school band in the state. Three large trophies
were carried home by the boys, one to be held permanently, the other two
to be competed for annually until they have been won three years in succes-
XX l Xlt llUI.lS li:-tissiii
sion. Albany High is proud in having the band and its able instructor, Pro
fessor W. T, Nicholls, in its midst.

Under the supervision at the new
music instructor, Miss La Verne Vahl-
dieck, the Mixed Glee Club was organized
and officers elected.
During the two months previous to
the operetta, little was accomplished in
learning new songs, since the entire time
of practice was spent in preparing for the
Two sub-organizations were formed
by the girls and two by the boys, The l
girls' sextet consisted of Mary Edith NN V-U"i""1l"f
Rohrbough and Charlotte Trickey, first
sopranos, Joan Burnett and Evelyn Worley, second sopranos, and Erma Mes-
man and Helen Bryant, altos. Four of these, Evelyn Worley, Mary Edith
Rohrbough, Erma Mesman, and Helen Bryant formed the girls' quartet.
The boys' sextet consisted of Myron Willard and Sidney Burt, first
tenors, Lawrence Misner and Ralph Senders, basses, and Baden Rupert and
Ed Earp, second tenors. The boys' quartet consisted of Robert Fischer, first
tenor, Myron Willard, second tenor, Julian Bryant, first bass, and Lawrence
Misner, second bass.
The boys' and the girls' quartets as well as several soloists were en-
tered in the state music tournament.
"Once in a Blue Moon"
Once again the combined glee clubs of Albany Hi score a success.
"Once in a Blue Moon," a sparkling- "blues-choser" operetta verging
on the musical comedy idea, was the name of the performance. A delight-
ful romance budded and flowered into full bloom in the course of the three
acts, and the audience enthusiastically approved the clever plot,
The outstanding feature of the entertainment, however, was the re-
mlarkoble portrayal of every character in the cast.
The two leads were carried by Donna Brown and Julian Bryant. Donna's
singing and excellent acting were a treat. Julian, in the masculine lead for
the second consecutive time, made a hit with his delightful tenor voice,
Myron Willard and Lawrence Misner brought laughs and shudders to
the crowd in rapid succession,
Mary Edith Rohrbough pleased the crowd with her interpretation of
the difficult Moon Lady role.
Others who acted their roles with professionalflike ability were Erma
Mesmon as Mrs. Montgomery, Charlotte Trickey as Leatrice, and Billy Bare
rett as Mr. Morton.
Miss La Verne Vahldeick, the new music instructor, proved her mettle
by skillfully casting and coaching the participants. Mrs. Childs assisted in
the dramatic work.

spots were present for several days as remembrances of the skating party.
QUILL AND SCROLL HOLDS SECOND INITIATION
Julian Bryant was host to the Quill and Scroll society at his home on March the fifteenth,
when Gladys Smith and Julian Bryant were initiated.
A delightful covered-dish supper was served previous to the initiation service. The pins

comed the new members.
Several alumni members were present to enjoy the evening.
At nine a'clock on last Monday morning many cars were parked near the Albany High
School. In front of the school five blue school busses were visible. Laughing students were
jumping from the busses and running toward the school door. The school busses were estab-
lished in I929 under the supervision of Dan Zeh. They transport two hundred and fifty stu-
dents daily to and from school.
Albany High School, a large attractive brick building, was built in l909. Four entrances
lead into the interior. As I entered the front entrance, the click of a machine caught my
ear. It was Miss Priscilla Watrous, the office secretary, running the mimeograph machine
in Mr. Finnerty's office. Mr. Hudson's and Mr. Finnerty's separate offices are located down
stairs near the door. At this time Mr. Hudson was the only occupant in his office, but Mr.
Finnerty had many visitors as well as observers.
Priscilla had to stop her work to call to the telephone a student who was supposed to
be in the Commercial Department during this period, so I wandered in with her to look around
c bit. The commercial course included bookkeeping, shorthand, salesmanship, commercial
law, and business English. The student whom the secretary was paging was found in the
bookkeeping class instructed by Mr. Miller. All of the students in this room were bent over
large books and busily writing. I walked up to John Conser and said, "Whot's to be done
John replied, "Aw, we got to record some ol' business transactions in this journal in the
briefest form for future reference." Poor John!
The Commercial department is an important division of our school. Many of our students
who have taken this type of work have been successful in business careers.
A gleaming desk across the hall in room seven caught my attention. I skipped over to
visit the typing class. In the typing department are thirty-five typewriters. Mrs. Penland
had charge of typing I and II, while Miss Voyen instructs typing Ill and IV. On this parti-
cular morning Mrs. Penland was impressing the value of accuracy on the students' minds.
Since Mrs. Penland is also adviser for the school paper, I decided to inspect the print shop
and observe the journalism class. Recitations are held on the first two days of each week
so that the students may learn the principles of writing advertisements, headlines, and all
other journalistic features. During the last three days of the week each pupil is required to
spend two periods each day in the print shop with Mr. Grigsby, who teaches one to set type,
to distribute type, to read proof, to correct proof, and to perform various other shop duties.
From here I strolled into the industrial arts department. My! How the boys were work-
ing! What jay and pride were shining in their bright faces! Mechanical drawing and shop
work are under the supervision of Mr. Pimentel. Here the boys of our school learn the correct
use of tools and the art of mechanical drawing. But what was Alta Dawson doing in this
place? This was beyond me. She satisfied my curiosity by explaining that she was only on an
errand for the domestic science roam.
Since Alta insisted that I attend her class in room three, I sauntered up to the second
floor with her. The girls in this room were busy making lampshades, a project of the applied
arts course. The Home Economics Department includes two domestic art classes, a domestic
science class, and an applied arts class. Their instructor stresses the necessity of quality and
economy, The students of each of these classes are entitled to membership in the Home
Economics Club. This club has mode great headway under Miss Parker's supervision.
After a few minutes the door opened, and Joyce Bino announced, HG. A. A. meeting
in the library immediately." Being curious about the Girls' Athletic Association, I proceeded
to the library, I learned that this association is helpful to the girls in making friendships and
in meeting new girls. The purpose of this organization is to promote leadership and clean
athletics among the girls of the school.
Just as the girls' meeting was being dismissed, a group of husky boys entered the room.
These were the boy athletes of the school, The athletics of Albany High School consist of
enough sports to give every boy an opportunity to take part in some form of physical activity
during the school year, Coach Ellmgsen is at the head of this department.
Before I left the library, I stopped to chat with Mrs. Childs, who is the librarian, debate
coach, and dramatic teacher. Across the hall in the assembly there was o meeting of the
C-irls' League in session. This club, an organization just for girls, has as its goal a high
standard of character, scholarship, service, and leadership.
A sign on the assembly board read "O. of A. meeting, lZ:45." I soon learned that
"O. of A," meant Order of A. This is a boys' club composed of lettcrmen of Albany High
School. Many of the Order of A Boys also belong to the "Hi-Y" Club, which was organized
when the school was built.
As I was walking down the stairs from the assembly, I noticed that a bus was parked
in front of the building and that boys were climbing in. Wondering if this were a "skipping"
class, I approached it. Dan Zeh, the driver, assured me that they were not truants. They
were merely going to the Burkhart School, where the Smith-Hughes work is conducted. ln
this class they study scientific farming, for which they receive a credit and a half. Beside
the day sessions Mr. Morgan conducts night classes for part-time boys. For part-time they
receive one-third credit.
When I again returned to the high school, the thought entered my head that I had not
seen anything of the civics or history departments. The school surely must have history in-
structors. I soon found my way to room eleven, where Mr. Buchanan was impressing upon the
students' minds their responsibility as junior citizens. In civics they study from the text the
first four days of the week and have current events on Fridays.
From this room l was directed to the lower hall to room one, where Miss McKnight was
conducting her class in American history. The subject of her lecture was George Washing-
ton, the first president. The history department consists of World history, a freshman sub-
IUCN American history, a junior required subject, and English history, an elective taught by
As I left Miss McKnight's room I met Professor Hudson, who informed me that he had
a class in the physics laboratory next period. I willingly mounted the stairs again. In room
fourteen I found several tables with four chairs at each. As the students came in and took
their places, their equipment was brought to them.
After Professor Hudson had dismissed his class, he told me that Mr, Umphrey would be
teaching a chemistry class in room thirteen the next period. The physics class having proved
sc interesting, I decided to learn more about science. Here the students performed various
experiments. Each student has assigned to him a project at the beginning of the year for
which he is held responsible.
Class projects and contract work made me think of a friend of mine named Miss Chase,
who was still teaching here. A Literary Explorer guided me to room nine. Miss Chase is the
senior English instructor. Since English is a required subject in all three years, it is necessary
to employ five teachers in this department. Miss Chase, Miss Anderson, and Miss Spence
teach senior, junior, and sophomore English respectively. Miss Tracy and Miss Porter have
charge of the mid-term English students.
After a few words of friendly conversation, I continued my expedition. In a little room
off the assembly I found Mr. Lehman. As I entered the room, he greeted me with "Buenos
diosf' Since this I recognized as the Spanish for good-morning, I came to the conclusion
that this must be a Spanish class. This class was reading a very interesting book called
"AmaIia." The Spanish classes have also organized a Spanish club which meets every two
weeks at the homes of the members.
As I walked from the assembly, I noticed across the hall in a little corner a door numb-
ered sixteen. My sense of curiosity being aroused, I opened it and found Miss Spence teach-
ing a French lesson. After listening to the class awhile, I asked her if there were any other
languages taught in the school besides English , Spanish, and French. She said that Miss
Tracy had a Latin class in the room where Mr. Hudson used to have his office.
Here I found the class struggling desperately with their "qui's" and "quo's." Since
Miss Tracy is also an experienced English teacher, it is beneficial for those who have difficulty
viith English to take Latin.
I walked down the hall behind some students who were lamenting the fact that they were
not prepared for their algebra test next period. I followed them to the room where Miss
Porter conducted her class in Algebra IV. Miss Porter is the instructor in algebra and trig-
onometry. Miss Worley in room four has charge of the geometry classes. There are ap-
proximately one hundred and fifty enrolled in this department.
As the algebra class was being dismissed, I heard a girl whisper, "l must take this frog
to the biology class." That sounded so interesting that I trailed her to room two. Here I
found Miss Stanford giving information about plant and animal life and receiving graciously
frogs, waterdogs, goldfish, trillium, and lady-slippers.
Once again I wandered down the hall, whom should I see this time but a woman dressed
in a nurse's uniform. This proved to be Mrs. Muller, the health nurse, whose duty it is to
weigh and inspect the students. If they are under or over weight, she gives them helpful
information concerning their diet.
As I left the room that the nurse occupied, I was confronted by a white-haired man,
who was sweeping the floors. This, of course, I knew to be Mr. Hall, the veteran janitor of
Albany High. Soon an excessively polite man who looked as if he carried all of the cares of
the universe approached the janitor saying, "Pardon me, Mr, Hall. The band room is too
cold to be comfortable. I wonder if you could send some heat up there."
The janitor replied, "l'm sorry, Mr. Nicholls. I will tend to that right away."
Since Mr. Nicholls had a baton in his hand, I decided that he must have accurate in-
formation about the music in the school. I asked him to tell me about Albany's music de-
partment. He told me that he himself directed the band and orchestra, and that the Albany
High School Band had won the state championship last year, and was again preparing to run
off with the trophy. He explained, however, that he did not have charge of the glee clubs.
'lhey are managed by Miss Vahldieck, the vocal instructor lone of the twinsll.
After a few minutes of conversation he returned to the band room, and I decided to
"call it a day" and return home. As I walked out of the building, I was aware of a feeling
thot Albany High School was doing its best to prepare its younger generation for the prob-
lems that will confront them in the years to come.

erals presented bythe State Physical Education Association and one hundred-
titty point numeral presented by the high school. Since only a few girls have
won the two hundred point numeral, it is very much coveted by every girl.
The main sports of the year are volley ball, basketball, baseball, tennis,

Probably the largest issue settled by the Student Council this year was
the stripe question for lettermen. It was decided that the major sports
should remain as in the past: baseball, football, basketball, and track, ln
the future these sports will merit a stripe above the elbow, Minor sport
stripes, such as tennis and golf, will be awarded stripes below the elbow.
The duty of this organization is to manage the business of the students
and the school. lt also appoints committees, orders payment of school funds,
and acts in its official capacity in any problem confronting the students.
This year more than in the past has seen the Student Council more
closely allied with the student body. All students so wishing have been al-
lowed to attend council meetings and have been permitted to express their
opinion on any subject involving them.

The Science Club
RICHARD BRAY - - - - - President
EDWARD BRYAN - - Vice-President
HELEN CLELAND - - - - - Secretary-Treasurer
The Science Club was organized in Albany High School in the spring of 1931 by Arnold
Wolverton, senior in science.
Wolverton's purpose for organizing such a club was to increase the students' interest in
science. He drew up a constitution in which the requirements for membership are as follows:
A student must have had two years of natural science or mathematics or must be in his
second year of a course in science or mathematics. He must have received a grade of ll or
above in his last science or mathematics course.
After the first year any one who desires to become a member at this organization must
make application to the secretary of this club. After the first six weeks he may be elected
as a member provided not enough members have been chosen to fill the vacancies existing.
Programs are given after the business meeting with the president in charge. One of the
five departments represented lChemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography, and Mathematicsi may
give ony kind of a program it wishes as long as the topic deals with science.
Chemistry Department-Harold Whitney, Delivan Burkhart, Richard Bray, Pearl Meyer.
Biology Department-Lucile Torbet, Edith Roner, Roberta Bennett, Dan Zeh, George
Physics Department-Pauline Higbee, Julian Bryant, Leonard Gibson.
Geography Department-Helen Cleland, Pat Hutchins, Rodney Tripp, Edwin Anderson,
Cieo Fender, Alfred Scott.
Mathematics Department7Miriam Richmond, Rachael Richmond, Everett Montgomery,

"Smith-Hughes!" What does this mean to you high school students?
ls it just a place where a bunch of farmer guys go to study tame farm stuff
and coll themselves Future Farmers?
lf that is your impression of this division of your high school, you have
made the dent in the wrong place. lt is true that only farmer boys are en-
rolled in Smith-Hughes work, but the work that we do is for from being tame.
The training that we receive from this course is something that every boy
should be proud to have-clean, wholesome, and practical knowledge.
Although we have a certain amount of work to accomplish, we have a
rollicking good time doing it.
Three Smithfl-lughes classes are held every school day in the Burkhart
building under the able supervision of Mr, Morgan. During the first and
second periods the freshmen devote their time to this subject. ln the third
and fourth periods the sophomores take their turn. And in the sixth and
seventh periods the juniors and seniors try their hand at this sofcalled farmf
er's trade. Another thing that we get is a free bus ride to and from class,
at all times being assured that our driver, Dan Zeh, will convey us in safety.
Each week is divided into two parts. Usually two days are devoted to
shop work, while the remainder of the week is spent in class study. ln shop
we are given lessons in various kinds of wood work, soldering, forge work,
welding, metal work, repairing, milk testing, surveying, drainage, soil test-
ing, harness repairing, rope work, saw filing, and stock judging.
Our class time is spent in studying the many farming problems. Every
boy is required to carry a home project besides the regular everyday class
work. This may be either a live stock project or a crop project, but in each
there are certain minimum requirements. At the end of the year every
boy figures from his records whether he has made a profit or a loss on his
enterprise. The average net profit that should be made in one year is Sl 50.
A credit and a half is given for each year of satisfactorily finished work.
Each piece of work is valued at so many points. The more work done, the
better the grade received.
Besides these day classes Mr. Morgan conducts night classes for part-
time boys. These boys are given only a few fundamentals in class and shop
work, but they must carry a home project. Once every week Mr, Morgan
holds a special school on potatoes. This is for adult farmers who are especi-
ally interested in that project.
Working jointly with this Smith-Hughes course is a National organiza-
tion known as the Future Farmers of America. This organization is one
which has been established to further the advancement of farming condi-
tions. This is promoted by local chapters in the different schools in the
states working in harmony with the state chapters and with the National
Chapter. Only farm school boys enrolled in Smith-Hughes work can be-
come members. This membership entitles each boy to enter activities such
as stock-judging contests, athletic contests, shop contests, oratorical cone
tests and exhibiting at fairs. Each year the members of the chapters give a
banquet for their fathers. Frequently the chapters present public entertain-
ments of various kinds.
We-the Smith-Hughes Future Farmers-are an active, functioning
department, trying to make a worthy place for ourselves, and asking for the
willing cooperation of every student, parent, and individual.
As one profits, so will he share.
The more encouragement we are receiving,
The better our burdens we can bear,
Always doing so in faith, believing
That our efforts will be rewarded somewhere.

On February second, l93Z, the Home Economics girls formed an or-
ganization which is called The I-lame Economics Club of Albany High School.
lt met all the requirements and became affiliated with the State and Nationf
al Home Economics Association on February 24, l932.
The purpose of this organization is to promote a further study of Home
Economics in the school and community and to promote better relationship
between the girls in contact with each other.
Three delegates were sent to the second annual state convention held
in McMinnville, Oregon, on February 26 and 27, The girls brought home
many new ideas that can be carried out next year in the improvement of
the Home Economics department,
The Home Economucs girls have been very active this year, even though
the club is quite new. At the first of the year the girls had a tea for the
high school students and faculty.
The dining room was redecorated by the Applied Arts class, the fin-
ances being obtained by selling hotdogs at football games.
The girls served at the F. F. A. banquet and the Vocational Education

The Spanish Club, La Tertulia, was organized by the Spanish students in
October, l93l, with Mr, Lehman as adviser. The Spanish club is one of the
newest clubs in the school, and if one judges by the interest shown by the
members, it is a club that is going to "stick,"
The membership includes the students of the Spanish classes. The club
meets every first and third Monday of each month at the homes of various
Programs having to do with the Spanish language or some phase of
Spanish lite are provided for the regular meetings.
La Tertulia affords the members an opportunity to learn more of the
language and lite of Spanish-speaking peoples than they would possibly
gain from their text books. The purpose of the club is to further the mem-
bers' knowledge of the Spanish language, the Spanish people, and their
every-day life and customs.

our Blue and Gold warriors fought every other team to a standstill, and several games were
snatched from our victory column by Lady Luck.
For the first time in several years we put on the field a team that was equal to the
Corvallis eleven. The prospects for next year are arousing such enthusiasm among the loyal
supporters. Anybody who has been around the team members know that they have de-
termined ta beat every one of their old antagonists next season.

men returning, Sam Bikman and Abe Merritt. The latter played only halt
ot the season because of his graduation with the mid-year class.
The Bulldog hoopsters played several practice games before the regular
conference games were started. Sweet Home, Shedd, and Tangent were
each beaten twice in these encounters.
The series with Lebanon was split, a third game having to be played
to decide the winner of the county class-A title and which team would enter

to ll. ln the third and deciding game, the Bulldogs won the County title
27 to l8 and the right to enter the District Tournament.

The Albany High School baseball team made a very impressive show-
ing during the l93l season, having won four games out of ten played. Those
teams defeated were Springfield, 7 to 6, Brownsville, l4 to 9, Sweet Home,
l5 to 4, and Shedd, 8 to 2. The Bulldog nine also won several games played
in the Twilight league, of which it was a member,
Rupert and Mitchell carried the bulk of the pitching duties through-
out the season. Mitchell received credit for the Springfield and Brownsville
games, while Rupert had the credit for the Sweet Home and Shedd contests.
ln all games the pitchers were well supported in the infield consisting of
Abe Merritt at first base, Johnny Conser and Art Kielblock alternating at
second base, Ed Dooley at shortstop, and Sam Olsen at third base. The out-
field also made a brilliant showing during the season. Those cavorting in the
outer gardens were Pete Whitney, left field, Don McCrary, center field, and
Glen McCrary, right field.
The Blue and Gold nine also entered the first annual baseball tourna-
ment at the Lebanon strawberry festival. Here the Bulldogs won one and
lost one. Several very close battles were lost earlier in the season, the most
outstanding being the Salem and Corvallis conflicts. With the bases full
in the ninth inning against Salem, Albany could not muster enough punch
to put over the winning runs and lost 5 to 3. In the Corvallis contest Albany
scored five runs in the first inning and led practically the entire game but
finally lost out 7 to 6.
Those earning their letters last spring were Baden Rupert, Harold Mit-
chell, Pete Whitney, Ed Dooley, Don McCrary, Shorty McCrary, Abe Merritt,
Don Grady, Sam Olsen, Art Kielblock, Johnny Conser, and Perry Long. Whit-
ney, Dooley, Shorty McCrary, Olsen, Kielblock, Rupert, Conser, and Long will

will last through the entire season without the repetition of this embarrassing

Silverton, University Hi, and Eugene, besides practice matches with the Ore-
gon frosh and the Oregon state rooks.
