1932 ALBANY HIGH SCHOOL .WHIRLWIND, A TRUE HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL YEAR OF'31-'32 ) 7This edition of the Whirlwind is dedi- cated to Professor R. A. Buchanan. We have found Mr. Buchanan competent and patient as an instructor. We know him also as a friend—pleasant and humorous. We consider the ideals developed through contact with him invaluable. Our wish for him is one of continued well-being.FOREWORD It has been the purpose of the 1932 Whirlwind staff to make this book a true picture of our school life and activities. We thank Mr. Hudson and Miss Chase, our advisers, for their gener- ous help and frequent suggestions in preparing this edition of the Whirl- wind Annual.Table of Contents a r Administration Classes Activities Society and Literary Organizations Athletics HumorALBANY HIGH SCHOOLj: THE WHIRLWIND :C "Cw 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 served in the capacity of member of a city school board longer than any 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- breeding, stock-raising, and animal judging, also includes the most recent scientific knowledge in agriculture. This addition to the school s courses has been the outcome of the efforts of Mr. Hudson, principal, and Mr. Finnerty, superintendent. Another outstanding accomplishment of the school board has been the extension of the very popular bus lines. As a result of the extension, the radius of those living in dis- tant regions having access to Albany High has been enlarged, and consequently the number of enrolled students this year has in- creased considerably. Besides this the school board has effect- ed a fine spirit of cooperation between the townspeople and the school administration and has avoided many of the disturbances characteristic of other cities and their school G.

Davis Stanford Lamberty Ruthruff Senior Cl ass History The spotlight of history is focused on the class of ’32! From the dim past arise the Central and Madison freshmen of 1928. At Central the class was led by Richard Bray, president; Barbara Beam, vice-president; George Bickman, secretary-treasurer. At Madison the officers were Leland White, president; Oren Sudtell, vice-president; Mildred Baughman, secretary; Marceil Goins, treasurer. The freshman classes were prominent in student acti- vities and contributed material for the various high school teams. The spotlight turns to 1929 where the classes now serving apprenticeship in the Senior High School elected the following officers: Oren Sudtell, president; Barbara Beam, vice- president; Annette Ruthruff, secretary-treasurer. This year the boys won the inter-class basketball championship. The girls won the girls’ interclass basketball, volley ball, and baseball championships. The spotlight glows on 1930! We have now become upperclassmen, and the timidity of sophomore days has vanished. For our officers we elected Baden Rupert, president; Oren Sudtell, vice-president; Annette Ruthruff, secretary, and John Conser, treasurer. This year we contributed six members of the first team in football and three members of the first team in basketball. The managers of the football and basketball teams were chosen from our class. The girls won the volley ball and basketball championships again. As juniors we produced a very successful play, "Blind Dates,” to raise funds for the junior-senior picnic. We contributed material for glee club, debate, and dramatics, and prepared for a successful senior year. The spotlight of history turns to the brightest year of all, the reflections of which dazzle all 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 in 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 teams have been drawn from the senior class—and also from the official high school taxi. The seniors have done their part in debating and in helping to take the team to high honors. They have carried the operetta to success and have demonstrated their dramatic ability in a final burst of glory, the Senior Play. The members of the class of’32 have entered into every field—athletics, oratory, music, and dramatics with outstanding success, and have reached the highest goal by upholding and increasing the honor and glory of Albany High School. 12THE WHIRLWIND c J Sud tel!

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- ship. 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 climbed. 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 of equal ability. 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: 1. 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. I, Esther McKnight, will my ability to "get” editors to Nadyne Bowman. 5. I, 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. (Signed) WILLIAM LLOYD TEMPLETON. 7. I, Annette Ruthruff, do bequeath my coyness to Frances Glaisyer. 8. I, Maxine Willett, bestow my seventh period "pssst-ing" to Maurice Wright. 9. We, the Giggling Triumvirate—Lamberty, Beam, and Trapp—leave our success in "getting around” Mr. Hudson to anyone who needs it. 10. I, Kenneth Curry, cede to Mr. Umphrey my oversize feet and my ability to welcome new girls to school. 11. I, Bob Ferguson, leave some of my tendency for big words to Paul Botes. 12. I, Baden Rupert, do surrender my ability to hand out gum to Jimmie Davis. 13. I, Lloyd Porter, furnish my two patented curling irons to Bill Moule in case he should lose his. 14. I, Vera Martin, leave my English class giggle to Morris Dowd. 15. 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, 1932. 18 THE WHIRLWIND C J Senior Prophecy 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 familiar 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. With him were Jim Arthur, city garbage inspector, and Del Burkhart, first assistant broom pusher. I was greatly touched (seventy-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 go; consequently the beginning of the show found me in a seat on the main floor. I enjoyed the vaudeville, but as an added attraction Evelyn Worley sang a selection from the Opera "Hollerloudski!” 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 former Charlotte Lamb- erty, 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 a 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 overjoyed 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 1932 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, 19 THE WHIRLWIND Senior Prophecy-Continued Alta Dawson, introduced me to one of the successes from my hometown. He 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 saw 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 (commonly called the University of Calif- ornia) I met Heze Burkhart. He was in a hurry, for he had an engagement to talk on how he had made his success. I had intended to go to Albany, where I 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 go feed the wolf at the front door, so I’ll be seeing you. THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1932 Motto: The horizon widens as we climb. Colors: Sky blue and white. Flowers: Cecil Brunner roses and sweet peas. 20Junior Class THE WHIRLWIND Junior Class OFFICERS PAUL BATES - -- -- -- -- -- - President BILL MOULE - -- -- -- -- -- Vice-President JANE BEZZANT - -- -- -- -- -- Secretary BOB LEE - Treasurer GEORGE MITCHELL - Student Council Representative 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 classmen,” 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 organi- zations. All in all, they made a good start in Senior High. This year the juniors had the honor of having one of their number— tion. Loren Patterson and David McKencknie served as good "ballasts” in the '31 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 new-comer, 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 of the 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 Hartsock 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. 22THE WHIRLWIND Barrett Gilkcy Bickman Hartsock Goltra Silk Mitchell Conn Stockton Higbee Mulligan Littler Richards Tripp Williamson Hutchins Kielblock Chambers Holloway Dooley Halladay Gibson Baker Willard M.

PHILIP LEHMAN - - - ------ Class Adviser In September, 1931, the sophomores first entered the portals of Al- bany High School, where they were greeted by a large number of juniors and seniors. At a reception given by upperclassmen, soon after school began, the new students were first formally introduced and welcomed by the stu- dent body. Although coming from various schools, the sophomores readily de- veloped a class spirit and have been outstanding in school activities. The sophomore class is represented in nearly all of the organizations. Its members take an active part in the numerous activities of the school. The sophomores are inordinately proud of Martha Bibb and Roberta Bennett, who have won many honors in debate. A number of sophomores have been prominent in athletics. The class can already boast of one letterman in football and basketball—Jimmie Davis. The cast and chorus of the operetta "Once in a Blue Moon” included a number of sophomores, with Mary Edith Rohrbough and Ralph Senders adding greatly to the success of the production with their excellent char- acterizations of leading parts. The sophomores, having high ambitions, hope to realize them in the next two years of their high school career. 26 THE WHIRLWIND Sophomore Class Aldrich, Marion Alexander, Larry Ammond, Dorothy Andrus, George Arthur, Jack Asche, Margaret Atkeson, Howard Beight, Esther Benedict, Alton Bennett, Roberta Bibb, Martha Billings, Mildred Bilyeu, Wilbert Blanchard, George Bodine, Genevieve Brown, Veryl Brush, Leonard Bryant, Jack Burch, Viola Burnett, Joanne Burt, Sidney Burton, Eugene Chandler, Elaine Clark, Virginia Clem, Elmer Coates, Doris Coates, Lucile Conn, Harold Cox, Gertrude Cunningham, Keith Dannals, Sloan Davenport, Donald Davis, James Dickson, Louis Dowd, Morris Dougan, Betty Dumbeck, Ruth Eastman, Lucile Earp, Edwin Ehrlick, Alverna Edwin, Frances Feurstein, Robert Fowler, Bruce Freeman, Mary Edith Gassman, Philip Giberson, Lucile Gingerich, Alice Goodman, Kenneth Goff, Trylba Goodman, Myrtle Grenz, Adeline Haglund, Mildred Haley, Alta Haley, Hazel Hammond, Delmar Harter, Mable Hodges, Sally Hoflich, Hazel Holec, Rose Holmes, Kenneth Holst, Eloise Huffman, Gloria Huffman, Margaret Huffman, Nellie Jenks, Virginia Johnston, Velma Karstens, Marjorie Keebler, Dell Kelly, Esther Kelty, Margaret Kelty, Rose Kenagy, Irene Koster, Lena Lemons, Edith Lockner, Evelyn Lockner, Irene Lopuson, Dick Lund, Dorothy Maguren, Robert Martin, Verna McCallister, Evelyn McClain, Geneva McClain, Jeanette McClellan, Blanche McLeod, Francis McDaniel, Willard McNeil, Lula McWhorter, Frances Miller, Carl Miller, Edward Miller, Kenneth Mishler, Isabelle Mollet, Evelyn Morgan, Richard Morlan, Ernest Morley, Neva Moses, Marjorie Myers, Josephine Odenborg, Arlie Olliver, Mary Louise Olsen, Carl Olsen, Harold Patterson, Floyd Potts, Robert Price, Edith Propst, Wanita ReDenius, Ellyne Rex, Gerald Ridders, Mary Ann Riley, Kathryn Roberts, Francis Rockwell, Georgia Rohrbough, Mary Edith Ross, Margaret Rothrock, Arthur Russell, Jess Saar, Murline Scott, Jane Senders, Ralph Shaw, Elwyn Stanley, Albert Stellmacher, Allyne Stenberg, Clinton Stewart, Henry Stewart, Marget Stewart, Robert Stuart, Josele Thomas, Earl Tryplett, Dick Truax, Woodrow Vannice, John Welch, Dean Widmer, Marie Willis, Neil Wolgamott, Opal Wyman, Marion 27 THE WHIRLWIND W H O'S WHO ROBERTA BENNETT Nickname—"Berta.” Age—1 6.

Soon after the school year had started, the Central freshmen were organized under the leadership of Harold Conn, president; Ralph Apple- gate, vice-president; John Carnegie, secretary and treasurer; Mr. Palmer, adviser. As many of these were promoted to the Senior High School at mid- term, the Central freshmen again organized under the leadership of Leonard Robertson, president; John Carnegie, vice-president; Willie Frager, secretary and treasurer; Mrs. Vandell adviser, with Iris 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 boys’ 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 1732, 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. 30 THE WHIRLWIND Central Freshman Class Ackerman, Isabelle Alderson, Clair Anthony, Albert Ashton, Daisy Applegate, James Applegate, Ralph Baker, Norman Baker, Dorothy Bartcher, Edwin Bates, Shirley Beard, Katherine Bickman, Mary Blanchard, Doris Brazel, Lee Bryant, Francis Bryant, Laura Buchanan, Thomas Burton, Clifford Cage, Margaret Campbell, Thelma Carnegie, John Cartmill, Laura Chandler, Gordon Childs, Betty Clark, Louise Cozad, Mary Cook, Martha Davis, Ethel Dooley, John Douglas, Derrill Eagy, Lyle Eagy, Ross Eagy, Verne Ehrlick, Erwin Finnell, Harry Fixen, Esther Fortmiller, Julianne Frager, Willie Fritch, Billy Goach, James Haley, Violet Hendryx, Frances Hickman, Charles Hogevall, Louella Hockett, Clifford Hood, Virginia Howells, Allan Ingle, Helen Ingle, Robert Jacobs, Gretchen Jenks, Elizabeth Karstens, Loren Kampher, Gordon Keebler, Betty Keebler, Phontell Koos, Helen Lee, Jane Linville, Garnett Looney, Grace Helen Lund, Helen Maguren, Ada McLaren, Gordon Mikkleson, Jessie Miller, Viola Miller, Vivian Morris, Donald Morlan, Duane Morton, Dan Nash, Dorothy Neuman, Fredrick Place, Merthal Richardson, Melvin Richards, Loraine Richmond, John Robertson, Leonard Romaine, Ruth Ryland, Leone Schmitt, June Seavy, Kenneth Sliger, Doris Smith, Catherine Smith, Eugene Snyder, Iris Steponek, Viola Stenberg, Maxine Stewart, Robert Thomas, Shirley Torbet, David Torgeson, Melvin Underwood, Earnest Waddle, Bernice Walker, Francis Walker, Ralph Walkup Betty Wilber, Wayne Willard, La Verne Williams, Genevieve 31THE WHIRLWIND Burnett Gibbons Fisk Kizer Conger Suggett Madison Freshman Class OFFICERS KEITH BURNETT - - -............................President ROBERT GIBBONS (to replace Jane Stevenson) - - - - ------ Vice-President ANNABELLE FISK................................- - Secretary HELEN CONSER.......................................Treasurer DELORES SUGGITT (to replace Adele Peterson) - -- - - -- -- -- Reporter MISS KIZER - -- -- - -- -- - Class Adviser IRVA DANIELS ---- - - -- -- - Girls' League RICHARD SULLIVAN...................................M.

We shall try to keep climbing through the sky of life, making new records as we go. This should not be hard for us, because of the expert leadership of our squadron commander, Miss Kizer. We shall always strive to leave a broad trail of good will behind us. If things continue to go as smoothly for us in the future as they have during this year, we shall be satisfied. There have been three notable "air meets" this year. They were held October 14, December 1 1, and February 12. All the members of the Madison Air Squadron came to these meets happy and went home happier. On Washington s birthday we had a program, and afterwards some trees were planted.

Debate Squad 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. In the district contest the affirmative lost to Toledo, 2-1, but the nega- tive won a 3-0 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 Oregon Championship. In 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 3-0 over Chiloquin, and the Albany High School debate team was declared Oregon State Champions. 37 THE WHIRLWIND The Albany High School Band The Albany High School band was organized in 1913. The band consisted of a 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. In 1914 the band had about thirty members with J. F. Lau as conductor. Mr. Lau stayed until 1917. In 1917 the band was reorganized under the direction and leadership of Pro- fessor E. A. Moses. In 1920 Mr. Perfect, a graduate of Stockholm University of Music, was di- rector. Next Mr. Edwin Wetmore acted as director for three years until Professor Nicholls took over the leadership. The fall of 1924 saw the band under the leadership of Mr. Nicholls. The band has progressed steadily under the able baton of Professor Nicholls until at this time it is champion of the state. The Albany High School band won second prize in the Oregon State Band Contest sponsored by the national honorary music fraternity on the Oregon State campus in 1925, 1926, 1927, and 1928. The annual contest in 1929 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 1930 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 tro- phies. The year of 1930-1931 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- 38 THE WHIRLWIND sion. Albany High is proud in having the band and its able instructor. Pro- fessor W. T. Nicholls, in its midst. The annual concert of the band was held in the high school auditorium, November 24. This concert is given every year to raise money to buy music for the band. The personnel of the band this year is as follows: W. T.

ORCHESTRA Officers GORDON STERNBERG, President RALPH SENDERS, Manager MARTHA HARRIS, Vice-President GLEN GENTRY, Librarian ELAINE WARNER, Secretary-Treasurer During the last year the Albany High School Orchestra has been improved. This is the result of the excellent work of Mr. W. T. Nicholls, the director, and the co-operation of students who have had one or more years of experience in orchestra and band work. The orchestra now has a variety of instruments which enables it to play a greater number of selections employing these instruments. The orchestra has played for several public enter- tainments, plays, assemblies, and for the annual Operetta. The orchestra gave its annual concert on November 24. VIOLIN QUARTET The high school Violin Quartet composed of Frances Douglas, first violin; Elaine Warner, second violin; Charlotte Trickey, third violin, and Alice Midwood, fourth violin, has been on active feature of the musical section of the high school this year. The quartet under the direction of Professor W. T. Nicholls has played for several school and public entertainments and has been well received. VIOLIN QUARTET Douglas, Warner, Trickey, Midwood 40 THE WHIRLWIND The Mixed Glee Club Officers Elmiro Hoglund................... President Evelyn Worley........... . . Vice-President Robert Anderson............Secretory-Treosurer Martha Harris...................Accompanist Under the supervision of 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 operetta. Two sub-organizations were formed by the girls and two by the boys. The girls’ sextet consisted of Mary Edith 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. MISS VAHLDIECK 41 THE WHIRLWIND Operetta "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-chaser" 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- markable 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 professional-like ability were Erma Mesman as Mrs. Montgomery, Charlotte Trickey as Leatrice, and Billy Bar- 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.

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 were presented by the president, Sam Bikman. He and Mrs. Penland, the adviser, then wel- comed the new members. Several alumni members were present to enjoy the evening. 44 r ,y THE WHIRLWIND :C J KNOW ALBANY At nine o’clock on lost 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 1 929 under the supervision of Don Zeh. They transport two hundred and fifty stu- dents daily to ond from school. Albany High School, a large attractive brick building, was built in 1909. 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 occupont in his office, but Mr. Finnerty had many visitors os well as observers. Priscilla had to stop her work to call to the telephone a student who was supposed to be in the Commercial Deportment 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, "What’s to be done now, John?" 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 III 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 ore 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 joy 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 room. 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 45 THE WHIRLWIND economy. The students of each of these classes are entitled to membership in the Home Economics Club. This club has made great headway under Miss Parker’s supervision. After o few minutes the door opened, and Joyce Bino announced, "G. A. A. meeting •n 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 os 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 Ellingsen is ot the heod 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 a meeting of the Girls’ 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, 12:45." I soon learned that ' O. of A." meant Order of A. This is a boys’ club composed of lettermen 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. In this class they study scientific forming, 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 I 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- ject; American history, a junior required subject; and English history, an elective taught by Mr. Lehman. 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, 46c THE WHIRLWIND 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 dios. 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 "Amalia " 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 with 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, "I 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, "I’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. They are managed by Miss Vahldieck, the vocal instructor (one of the twins!). 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 that 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.

But it fell to her fate To be fond of hot Mulligan stew. Wilbur Calhoun is a gentleman of taste Who’s not one, his phrases to waste. Though he lisps when he talks And struts when he walks, He does not slick his hair down with paste. Freeda Doughtry is sweet and demure. Her grammar is correct, clean, and pure She studies with zest, And for speech, beats the rest. With our class she’s on good terms for sure. Ed Dooley is dark, handsome, and tall. He’s a man’s man, for girls he won’t fall. But you cannot deny That his grades are sky-high, And that is what counts after all. Harold Houser, the band master’s pet. Has no moss grown on him, you can bet. He will win him a name And will soon rise to fame. He will not soon his school days forget. Everybody knows Asa Lewelling, So there seems to be no need in telling. He’s the sixth period sheik, ’Tho he’s seemingly meek. There’s no other like Asa Lewelling. There’s a young man whose name is Lorraine. All girls seem to give him a pain, But he studied like sin. And we know he will win. He doesn’t attend school in vain. Mildred Stinecipher is a cute little maid, And we feel we are amply repaid To have in our class Such a sweet, friendly lass. Her way to our hearts she has made. 48 THE WHIRLWIND Tom Ridders seems quiet in school, And silence his unvarying rule. But I'll bet when he's out. He’s a glorious scout And I’ll woger he’s nobody’s fool. Our teocher is Miss Fanny Chase. In English she sets a fast pace For her students to run, But she’s oodles of fun, And she always wears a smiling face. Ray Kenagy is the different boy Whose bright crown is our pride and joy.

Miriam Richmond the girl with no foe. Gladys Smith has her "Whirlwind'" down pat. There is nary a doubt about that. Applied arts is her hobby, And she’s not a bit snobby And she’s deeply in love—with her cat. "Personality plus" is her rep, She’s plumb full of vim and of pep. As to ads she’s a "wow," She gets them—and how! Charlotte knows how to make people step. He’s tall, dark and handsome and artistic. He draws both abstract and realistic. He draws wheels with such art You expect them to start, Leonard Gibson, our noted sophistic. 49 THE WHIRLWIND Lloyd Porter, so cute and so naive. Is blessed with a permanent wave.

He could never be yellow. With regrets he with High School will part. Hazel Whitaker is pretty and neat, And you cannot her humor beat. She gets what she wishes, Whether—green cheese or fishes. She’s a wow—tho she may be petit. Lawrence Nordyke, a real blue-eyed blonde. Of girls and their like he is fond. But he’s quiet in classes And in tests seldom passes. For to questions he hates to respond. Babs Beam, the superb athlete. Never suffers from colds or flat feet. She dances and skates. She loves, and she hates. And she won’t fall for all whom she meets. Bob Fisher leads yells with a will, And gay "Rah-Rahs" the halls seem to fill. Let us give his jazz band And himself a glad hand. Bob Fisher was never a pill. Now, what shall I say of the writer? You all would like greatly to fight her. But altho’ she is crazy. And her poems a bit hazy, At least you can’t say she’s a slighter. I’ve described all my class in detail. And altho’ these rhymes render you pale, If you’re better acquainted With the kids I have sainted. I’ll feel that work didn’t fail. —ALYCE WILCOX. 50ORGANIZATIONS Girls’ League Student Body Student Council Girls’ Athletic Association Commercial Club Quill and Scroll Boys’ Athletic Association Order of A Hi-Y Literary Explorers’ Club Science Club F.

Every girl in high school belongs to the League and aids in making it a highly suc- cessful organization. This year the "big sister" idea was carried out and proved very helpful to the new girls coming into the Senior High School. The meetings have been well attended, and the girls have always been ready to give their sup- port to any new undertaking. At the close of school the Albany High School girls who are considered foremost in character, scholarship, and school activities will have their names engraved on the Girls League silver cup. The girls who received this honor in 1931 were the following: seniors: Elma Morton, Laura Margaret Smith, Clare Stewart; juniors: Barbara Beam, Charlotte Lamberty; sopho- more: Lucille Torbet. The girls of the League feel that much has been accomplished this year, and they hope that next year may be even more successful. 51THE WHIRLWIND Ferguson Rupert Templeton Ruthruff Student Body Officers ROBERT FERGUSON...............................- President BADEN RUPERT.......................... Vice-President ANNETTE RUTHRUFF - - - ----- Secretory BILLIE TEMPLETON - -- -- -- - Treasurer The number of students registered in the Senior High School for the year 1931-1932 represents a substantial increase over those of previous years. The ever-increasing popularity of the school busses has been respon- sible in part for the larger enrollment. A need was seen for a pop-corn popper to be used at school games and on other occasions, and as a consequence the Student Body assumed the re- sponsibility of purchasing a popper this year. Since the popper thus far has proved a profitable enterprise, the Student Body is anticipating using it con- siderably in the future. Notwithstanding the fact that the Student Body has worked under abnormal conditions which are everywhere prevalent, the cooperation be- tween students and the faculty has promoted a spirit of good feeling. Numerous organizations working under the auspices of the Student Body have made enviable records this year. A number of new organizations have been created and are now working as a part of the high school. 52THE WHIRLWIND Girls’ Athletic Association Officers VIOLA ROBERTSON .................. MARGARET DOOLEY................... GEORGIA ROCKWELL.................. MISS RHODA MAHONEY................ President Vice-President Secretory-T reasurer Adviser Although it was only organized in 1928, the Girls' Athletic Association is one of the most prominent organizations in the A. H. S. The purpose of the organization is to promote leadership and good sportsmanship among the girls. Any girl who has earned ten points is eligible for membership. The desired points may be earned by being on a first team or two second teams. By the State points system the girls may earn four awards while in high school. They are the fifty point, one hundred, and two hundred point num- erals presented by the State Physical Education Association and one hundred- fifty 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, and track. The organization meets once a month. After a short business meeting, new members are initiated, and a short program is given. The remainder of the evening is spent playing games or in engaging some other social di- versions. 53THE WHIRLWIND -- Ferguson Mitchell l’otts Hudson C.

It was decided that the major sports should remain as in the past: baseball, football, basketball, and track. In 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. It 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. 54 THE WHIRLWIND First row, left to right: Hotlich.

There are now five applicants who are being considered for membership. Last year Laura Margaret Smith won first place for the state of Ore- gon in the Quill and Scroll feature story contest. This year Ed Dooley and Eleeta Coats, although not members of the club, took part in the Quill and Scroll contests. Ed Dooley won fifth place in the Pacific Coast in the cur- rent news contest. Eleeta Coats received honorable mention in the feature story writing contest. The organization has been more active this year than in previous years. The alumni are invited to the monthly meetings. The Quill and Scroll is materially aiding the progress of good journalism in Albany High School, since it provides a goal which any ambitious student is proud to attain. 55 dOr y. THE WHIRLWIND Commercial Club Officers HAROLD WHITNEY -....................President JANE GOODALE - - Vice-President EDITH CHAMBERS ------- Secretary-Treasurer The Commercial Club of Albany High School, which was organized in 1925, is an honorary society within the commercial department. This club, which is one of the most prominent in the school, is an organization of the students who are outstanding in any of the three commercial subjects: typ- ing, shorthand, or bookkeeping. An amendment has been added to the Constitution this year concern- ing the membership requirements. The grade now required to be eligible is one or two consecutive I I’s in any commercial subject, whereas before a grade of II made one eligible. The spirit of cooperation shown by the members has made this year an outstanding one for the club. The membership is now nearly a hundred, the largest number of members throughout the history of the club. Mrs. Mabel Penland, typing instructor, is the head of the Commercial Club. The other teachers in this department are Miss Clara Voyen, business English and shorthand; Mr. B. Sidney Miller, bookkeeping, commercial law, and salesmanship. 56THE WHIRLWIND ct -eo Ord er of the A Officers OREN SUDTELL ------- President BILL MOULE -------- Vice-President BADEN RUPERT ------- Secretary-Treasurer The Order of the A. was organized about ten years ago.

The association governs the granting of letters and stripes for the sports carried out by the school. 58 THE WHIRLWIND C PCJ Literary Explorers’ Club Officers CLARA HARNISCH.......................President BILL BARRETT.........................Vice-President NETA McCLAIN.........................Secretary-Treasurer MISS CHASE...........................Adviser The Literary Explorers’ Club is a national organization with the pur- pose of reading the works of the world’s best writers. The official magazine is called "The Explorer.” The club in Albany High School was started last year. This year there are thirty-five members, six of them post-graduates from the class of 1931. Only seniors who have memorized twenty-five selections from the "Treasure Chest” are eligible for membership. A pilot wheel pin is the emblem of the organization. It is hoped that through this club students will be induced to read and appreciate the higher types of literature.

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 II or above in his last science or mathematics course. After the first year any one who desires to become a member of 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 (Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography, and Mathematics) may give any kind of a program it wishes as long as the topic deals with science. Members Chemistry Department—Harold Whitney, Delivan Burkhart, Richard Bray, Pearl Meyer. Biology Department—Lucile Torbet, Edith Roner, Roberta Bennett, Dan Zeh, George Andrus.

Is it just a place where a bunch of farmer guys go to study tame farm stuff and call themselves Future Formers? If that is your impression of this division of your high school, you have made the dent in the wrong place. It is true that only farmer boys are en- rolled in Smith-Hughes work, but the work that we do is far 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 Smith-Hughes 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. In 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 so-called farm- 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. In 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 62 THE WHIRLWIND :C J 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 $150. 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 con- 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. 63 THE WHIRLWIND CXS-3 Home Ecomonics Club Officers ALTA DAWSON -------- HILDA BAUGHMAN.............

President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Reporter Historian Door Keeper On February second, 1932, the Home Economics girls formed an or- ganization which is called The Home Economics Club of Albany High School. 11 met all the requirements and became affiliated with the State and Nation- al Home Economics Association on February 24, 1932. 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 Economics 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 banquet. On February 15, forty-three girls prepared and served a luncheon spon- sored by Swift Company to over thirteen hundred farmers of surrounding communities. The department displayed a few of the garments made during the year in a booth at the Progress Exposition held March 10, 11, and 12. 64(LcfrS'J THE WHIRLWIND Spanish Club Officers CLEO FENDER - - - -.............President ELMIRA HAGLUND......................Vice-President BRUCE FOWLER - -- -- -- - Secretary-Treasurer JIM DAVIS --------- - Reporter Jane Scott replaced Elmira Haglund. The Spanish Club, La Tertulia, was organized by the Spanish students in October, 1931, 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 members. Programs having to do with the Spanish language or some phase of Spanish life are provided for the regular meetings. La Tertulia affords the members an opportunity to learn more of the language and life 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. 65■ THE WHIRLW I N D -- ------------------- Acknowledgements The Whirlwind Annual Staff wishes to express their appreciation for the advice and assistance of the firm of Hicks-Chatten and Company of Port- land in the engraving work in this book.

The score was 6 to 0. Neither team was able to score until the last quarter, when the opponents final- ly pushed the ball over the line. The Albany forward wall held up solidly throughout the entire contest. October 9—Tillamook Game Plenty of pep and power gave the Albany bulldogs a 1 3 to 0 win over Tillamook. This was our second game, and the team not only averaged the 39 to 0 defeat of the year before, but it brought the team the entire support of the townspeople. Albany had the upper hand all the way. The playing of Bates and Bayne in the back- field and Sudtell and Miller in the line accounted in a large part for the victory. October 17—Hill Military Academy Game The Albany High team won their second successive game of the season by trouncing the tough Hill Military Academy cadets from Portland at Central field, the score being 7 to 0. Albany scored during the first quarter when Bates crashed over from the seven yard line for a touchdown. A pass, Bayne to Bates, made the score 7 to 0. The bulldogs played a great offensive game and were never in trouble at any time during the conflict. October 23—Eugene Game The Albany eleven received their second setback of the season when a fast, heavy ag- gregation from Eugene High downed a lighter Albany High team 13 to 0 at Central field. The bulldogs put up a great defensive battle throughout the entire game but could not overcome their opponents. October 30—Cottage Grove Game Lady Luck deserted the ranks of the Blue and Gold squad, when the Cottage Grove eleven downed the fighting Albany High bulldogs 13 to 6 on the local field. Albany scored in the 68 THE WHIRLWIND first quarter and converted. Cottage Grove scored in the second and fourth quarters, con- verting the point in the latter quarter. Albany outplayed her rivals but let two passes get cway for touchdowns. November 11—Corvallis Game In one of the closest and most thrilling games ever played between the two schools, the Blue and Gold team lost to its traditional enemies from 'up the river' 7 to 6 on Central field. Bayne, Albany fullback, broke the scoring ice when he took the ball on a fake reverse and ran twenty yards to a touchdown. Albany failed to convert. Corvallis scored early in the second half and then converted. For the remainder of the game, the two teams went scoreless, although Albany battled valiantly in an attempt to score again. November 21—Solem Game Playing its first game away from home, the Albany High bulldogs lost to a strong Salem High eleven on Olinger field in Salem. The score was 21 to 6. Jim Miller, stalwart Albany tackle, made the Albany score when he blocked the Salem punt and fell on the ball behind the goal line. The game was played in a sea of frozen mud which greatly hampered the local team. November 26—Lebanon Game Albany High defeated Lebanon High in their annual Turkey Day game at Lebanon 7 to 0. Albany scored their touchdown during the fourth quarter when Bayne plunged over from the six yard line. Bates made the conversion. Paul Bates was the outstanding ground-gainer and made several spectacular catches of passes. A large contingent of Albany rooters accompanied the team, as did the Albany High band. Football Review Albany High enjoyed a successful season this year. Although we won only three games, 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 to beat every one of their old antagonists next season. 69 THE WHIRLWIND Sudtell Rupert Bates Templeton Holloway Montgomery Levelling J.

The latter played only half of 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 the District Tournament. Lebanon won the first game at Lebanon 1 8 to I 6, but Albany turned the tables on them in the second encounter, winning 18 to 1 1. In the third and deciding game, the Bulldogs won the County title 27 to 18 and the right to enter the District Tournament. Two new teams were on the schedule this year, West Linn and Oregon City, each school having a strong quintet of basketeers. The Bulldogs met and lost to West Linn twice, the scores being 24 to 15 and 30 to 19. In two hard-fought games the Blue and Gold hoopsters bowed to Oregon City 31 to 1 3 and 30 to 17. In the series with the Spartans from Corvallis, Albany again lost two closely contested and hard-fought battles. In the first game Corvallis won 71 THE WHIRLWIND ■C J 39 to 28 at Corvallis. Albany led at the quarter 1 1 to 1 and at the half 16 to 15 but could not hold the lead during the last half. The second game, at Central court, was lost 29 to 20. The Bulldogs could not withstand the terrific onslaught of the big and fast team from Salem and lost 50 to 1 8. The Albany High quintet entered the District Tournament played at Albany College but lost to a clever and fast team from Silverton in the opening round of play. In the following game the Bulldogs trounced Tang- ent 41 to 26 to win the consolation trophy. Although the season was not a huge success as to victories, the team showed promising ability for the coming season. Each member of the team fought hard all season and always gave the opposing team a battle. The following lettermen will return next year: Paul Bates, center; Dick Barnes, forward; Art Kielblock, guard; and Jim Davis, guard. With these lettermen and several second-stringers with promising ability return- ing, wonderful results should be shown next season. Dec. 8th Shedd ........ Dec. 12th Tangent .....

Those teams defeated were Springfield, 7 to 6; Brownsville, 14 to 9; Sweet Home, 1 5 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. In 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 return this season. The golf bug entered high school last year for the first time with tre- mendous success. Sixteen aspirants formed a Golf club and elected the following officers: Don McCrary, president; Oscar Schaubel, vice-president; Glendon McCrary, secretary and treasurer. The tournament for the Rotary club cup was won by Don McCrary. In the matches with outside high schools Albany had a high degree of success. The team composed of Don McCrary, Glendon McCrary, Oscar Schaubel, Frank Bolton, Glen White, and Larry Budlong defeated Corvallis, Woodburn, and Dallas, and gave Silverton, Salem, and Oregon City a hard fight. 73THE WHIRLWIND :C9€ J Back row, left to right: Buchanan, Trapp, Kuthruff, Burke Front row, loft to right: Robertson, Beam, Jones, Bino Girls’ Basketball The girls’ basketball season ended with a decisive victory for the seniors.

After several weeks of practice Miss Mahoney chose the following girls to represent the senior class: Barbara Beam, Margaret Burke, centers; Joyce Bino, Virginia Trapp, forwards; Doriene Jones, Beatrice Buchanan, guards. The members of the all-star team which is chosen from the entire high school are Joyce Bino, Virginia Trapp, forwards; Beatrice Buchanan, Doriene Jones, guards; Barbara Beam, Nadyne Bowman, centers. Honorable men- tion: Annette Ruthruff, Frances Gibson, forwards; Roberta Bennett, Pauline Higbee, guards; Jane Bates, Margaret Burke, centers. The girls who were on the all-star volleyball team are Barbara Beam, Joyce Bino, Doriene Jones, Annette Ruthruff, and Beatrice Buchanan; juniors: Jane Bates and Pauline Higbee; sophomores: Alverna Ehrlich, and Irene Kenagy. 74y THE WHIRLWIND S. Bikman Callistor Bennett «• Hickman Curry Tennis Team And again the Albany High School tennis team reigns supreme. For the sixth consecutive season, the Albany Hi net men last year de- fended successfully the coveted title of "Willamette Valley Champions." Winning eight matches in the ten conference engagements, the ex- pert racquet wielders again gave their school the distinction of having one of the foremost teams of the sport in the state. Since the team was almost forced to drop its schedule in mid-season because of lack of finances, the fellows themselves had to provide neces- sary equipment from funds from their own pockets. This year the most con- servative policy possible is planned, and expectations are that the finances will last through the entire season without the repetition of this embarrassing situation. On the schedule for the season were the teams of Salem, Corvallis, Silverton, University Hi, and Eugene, besides practice matches with the Ore- gon frosh and the Oregon state rooks. Prospects for this year’s team are bright with Sam Bikman, George Bickman, and Kenneth Curry back to form the nucleus of the team. Members of the last year’s team were as follows: Sam Bikman, Hague Callister, Bruce Senders, Kenneth Curry, Woodson Bennett. George Bickman acted as manager. 75 THE WHIRLWIND Humor!!
