It has been the purpose of the 1934 Whirl-
wind staff to make this book a true picture of
our school life and activities.
Because this is the first time that the An-
nual has been printed in our own printshop,
we felt that an old-time printer design and a
likeness of Benjamin Franklin would be an
appropriate theme, and we have endeavored
to carry this out as far as possible.
We Want to thank Mr.,IViidson and Miss
Chase for their generousf pand to commend
Robert Williamson for higpeiicellent art work
in this edition of the Whiihyipd Annual.
This edition me Whirlwind Annual is
dedicated to Claude WM. Grigsby, instructor in
We have found Mr. Grigsby competent
and patient, willing to help and valuable as a
friend. His aid in the publication of the 1934
Whirlwind Annual, the first to be printed in
the school printshop, has been unsurpassed.
As a small token of our appreciation we
wish to dedicate this Whirlwind Annual to
hirn with our love and best wishes.
Ihr Ali mnuriam
ON September 3, 1933, just prior to the opening of the fall
term of school, one of the best loved members of the
Albany High School Faculty, Professor W. T. Nicholls, was
summoned to join "that innumerable caravan ...... in the
silent halls of death."
The student body and many former pupils paid loving
tribute to their beloved leader in a fitting manner at the final
ceremonies, honoring one who had been such a faithful and
able director. The High School Band attended the funeral in
a body and rendered appropriate musical numbers. Captain
Beard, leader of the O.S.C. Cadet Band, led the band on this
During the ten-year p e rio d i n which Professor
Nicholls directed the various musical organizations of the
school, the High School Band achieved a place of prominence,
not only in Albany but throughout the State.
In 1931, in the State Band Contest held on the O.S.C.
Campus at Corvallis, Albany High School won first place in
the Class A division. The Winning of this high honor was
largely attributed to the unceasing efforts of Mr. Nicholls in
training the band to such a high degree of efficiency.
Mr. Nicholls had studied with some of the world's
greatest musicians and had played in some of America's
largest bands. He possessed the rare ability of being able to
play and teach any instrument in the band. Many young
untrained students have become excellent musicians through
the instruction and inspiration of Mr. Nicholl's efliciency and
versatility in music.
His memory will live on through the years in the lives
of his students because of the influence he exerted in devel-
oping an appreciation and understanding of music.

AS THE pages of the play, "A History of the Class of '34," come' from
the press, we look into the past and read the epic tale of those
valiant heroes and charming heroines.
The first act reveals that this organization entered Central and
Madison Junior High Schools in September, 1930. Here we laid a solid
foundation for our ascent into later prominence in high school affairs.
The second act finds the two groups combined into one society, the
sophomore class. The important characters in this act were the officers:
Jim Davis, president: Bruce Fowler, vice-president: Roberta Bennett,
secretary-treasurerg Bob Potts, representative to the student council.
At this time the seniors and juniors soon began to take notice of this
enterprising class. Jim Davis, Bruce Fowler, George Blanchard, and Jack
Arthur represented us in athletics. Martha Bibb, Blanche McClellan, Irene
Kenagy, Elaine Chandler, and Mary Louise Olliver were the actresses.
Sidney Burt, Ralph Senders, Morris Dowd, Dick Morgan, and Woodrow
Truax were the members of the band.
The third act narrates the thrilling adventure of being juniors. George
Blanchard headed the cast for the year with Bruce Fowler as understudy.
Jack Arthur was prompter and financial man: Clinton Stenberg was press
agent in the student council. From the very first we won honors in debate
and athletics, and were outstanding in band and glee club. This was only
in preparation for the great year to come.
The fourth, last, and greatest act started with a bang when Bruce
Fowler was elected president. His able assistants were Francis Roberts,
vice-president: Dick Lopuson, secretary: Marie Widmer, treasurer. George
Andrus was student body representative.
Most of the club oiiicers were seniors, and the organizations largely
were composed of seniors. In the dramatic field senior girls carried impor-
tant roles. The senior play, "Daddy Longlegs, " was presented by a talented
cast in the same inimitable manner characteristic of everything this class
has done. This production proved a fitting close to a most successful high

, the grave and reverend seniors of Albany High School, County of
Linn, State of Oregon, being in an imperfect state of mind and
realizing that our days in this institution are well nigh numbered, do hereby
bequeath to our heirs and successors, hereinafter mentioned, all property to
which we, as seniors, claim inalienable right.
To the faculty, we express our fullest appreciation for their undying
patience and guidance during our four years of high school.
To the juniors, we entrust our superiority complex and our coveted
standing in the school.
To the sophomores, we reluctantly bequeath our gift for pleasing the
To the freshmen, we leave the hope that some day they may attain the
brilliant status as seniors.
To the school, we donate Ralph Senders as a perfect specimen of
what a senior ought not to be.
To Mr. Luper, we extend a sincere wish that he'll fmd the Lost Chord.
I, Jim Davis, will to some bright and enterprising junior the office of
Student Body President.
I, Francis Roberts, present my ability to ask dumb questions in Civics
class to Willie Frager.
We, Mary Louise Olliver and Mildred Haglund, bestow our valentines
from John McPherson to anyone who can endure them.
I, Blanche McClellan, leave my natural red hair to Irene Baughman.
I, Martha Bibb, relinquish to Jeannette Kelly my ability to write
what some people call poetry.
I, Allyn Stellmacher, leave my chewing gum in my desk. Any junior
may have it.
I, Ed Earp, will my printer's pi to Earl Fortmiller and hope it will not
make him sick.
I, Genevieve Bodine, endow Mr. Hudson with a perpetual supply of
I, Roxie White, present to Bud Hockett my ability to carry success-
fully six subjects.
We, Irene Kenagy, Elaine Chandler, and Mary Edith Rohrbough,
contribute a trio of cats to take our place on assembly programs.
I, Bob Potts, abandon nothingel need it all.
I, Floy Speer, offer twenty-five pounds of my surplus weight to Joyce

I, Veryl Brown, leave my ability to think myself a ladies' man to
Having thus bestowed our earthly goods where it is most needed, we
hereby affix our seal on this twenty-ninth day of May, nineteen hundred
and thirty four.
LIFT UP your heads, oh ye three Sisters, and rejoice exceedingly, ye
Calapooia cedars, for the joy that shall come upon Jack Arthur in
the great year when the S.P. tracks are torn up, for behold I looked and lo,
he was even a matrimonial bureau president with fourteen kids to gladden
his old age. .
Yea, and so speaks the prophetess, Irene Kenagy, that ere the turn of
the century George Andrus shall acquire unto himself vast scads of coin from
inventing a dinner table threshing machine for threshing the sand from ye
succulent spinach. His collaborators, Jim Davis and Bob Potts, forsooth,
shall surely evolve a use for the sand, wrapping it in cellophane and selling
it to the manufacturers of sandwich-spread with which to make picnic sand-
wiches. It shall come to pass that Dorothy Ammon, in her fortieth year as
a school "marm" shall suffer dire persecution in the courts for spanking the
rebellious sons of Esther Beight and Zelma Carter, and the son's sons of
Maxine Dirrett. Virginia Clark, favored daughter of Riverside, shall find
Potts of gold.
Repent, repent, ye that say the farmer is going to the dogs, for be-
hold, ye shall see Kenneth Holmes and Dwight Black making two weeds
grow where only one grew before.
Canst thou swallow a pill without a glass of water? Verily, Theresa
Miller's invention of the sure-slip pill shall change hospital conditions for
Men of craft shall arise, in the treacherous days, inventing red---
white---and blue striped sugar for fourth of July. And who shall do this
terrible deed? Bruce Fowler and Robert Feuerstein, says the grey-beard
prophet. Lo, Woodrow Truax, our school big shot, shall betimes land a
slick job in the Puffed Wheat Factories where cereals are shot to eight times
normal size. Helen Thompson, thou purveyor of hot air, how can we deny
thy good fortune as president of the Amalgamated Furnace Companies of
I felt troubled in my mind tif anyj for a period of about forty-five
minutes. Then I looked and beheld Edwin Earp running a country news-
in which he records that Wilbert Bilyeu was arrested for loafing. This

and Jack Noice's political cartoons fnot bashful with ink, thank youlg other

of the sap thereof. Among them I beheld Joan Burnett and George Blanch-

Junor. Behold, there were a couple of nuts mixed with the pears, and they
secretly fell and cracked ye ed's head with an exceeding great crack. Lo,
it is cracked even unto this day, and the name of the one was Leonard Brush,

tried to prevent the heroine from marrying for deflated currencyg and Mar-
jorie Karstens, Velna Johnston, and Virginia Jenks, who were paid to sit
out in the audience and applaud. I also saw Nellie Huffman, Gloria Huff-
man, and Eloise Holst, who were lightning off stage. My eye was also
attracted by Francis Halada and Donna Grubbe who were taking the parts
of the two trained seals who had died of indigestion.
Behold, ye sons of a seahorse, for next I perceived a commotion on
the honorable corner of Fifth and Broadway, New York City, where Roxie
White and her medicine show were performing to the music furnished by
John Vannice, Henry Stewart, and Clinton Stenberg.
Then, verily I say unto you, my head did split. As I continued my
tour of this unique universe, I looked and beheld an endurance talking con-
test in which I found Marion Wyman taking grand honors.
But now, the prophetess has wearied, and her eyes have grown dim.
I cannot behold more, so I say unto ye, rejoice, and be exceeding glad.

The senior play, "Daddy Long Legs, " by Jean Webster was presented
on May 15 and 16 by two different casts. This year the senior class had so
many capable and talented students that there were enough potential
actors and actresses to deserve two casts. Over seventy students were
eligible for these productions. The following two casts produced the enter-

Jun ior History
THE class of 1935 began its high school career when it entered Central
and Madison junior high schools in the fall of 1931.
Bud Robertson, who was elected president at Central, was also the
class president during the sophomore and junior years in senior high school.
Keith Burnett was chosen president at Madison. Members of the class held
many honors in their schools during the freshman year.
In the fall of the next year the two classes were combined as sopho-
mores in the high school. The registration of 175 represented the largest
class ever enrolled in the high school. At the beginning of this year, Bud
Robertson and Erwin Ehrlich won letters in football. Bud has been a four-
letter man for two years. Many boys were represented in the high school
band and orchestra. Willie Frager and Bud Robertson were on the basket-
The first of the present year found Bud Robertson again in the office
of president. James Applegate and Harold Conn won letters in football.
Shirley Bates and Bud Hockett became members of the golf team. Willie
Frager, the yell leader, also played clarinet in the band. Julianne Fort-
miller, Jane Scott, Shirley Thomas, and Laura Bryant have been outstand-
ing in the journalism field. The class has had three very successful years,
and they are anticipating even a better one when they are seniors.

EG UALITY rather than quantity" is the outstanding feature of the
sophomore class of 1933-34. The proof of this statement may be
found in the fact that the class has been ably represented in all school
activities throughout the year.
The members are prominent in every important activity. Football,
basketball, track, baseball, tennis, and golf are included in the sports with
Clarence Manning and Eugene Sitton, football lettermeng Victor Groening
and Clarence Manning, basketball lettermeng Elmo Misner and George
Henderson, track team members, and Victor Groening and Clarence Man-
ning, baseball team members. Bob Potwin is a tennis letterman, and Lloyd
Finnell and Earl Fortmiller are golf team members. Anne Dooley, Betty
Fitzpatrick, and Jean Merrill are leading girl golfers. The class basketball
championship was won by the sophomores.
The sophomores have members in all musical organizations. Five
band members, five orchestra members, nine glee club members, and a quar-
tet member and alternate are all sophomores. I
Dermal Robertson is a member of the debate team.
In the school play, "The Blue Bird," the sophomores were represent-
ed by eight cast members.
Roger Chandler, Charles Frazee, Norman Gregory,Joyce Stellmacher,
and Shirley Silk are frequent members of the honor roll.
Shirley Silk is assistant activities editor ,of the Annual, and Joyce
Stellmacher is the sophomore editor. Earl Fortmiller has been chosen as-
sistant editor of the Whirlwind newspaper.
The sophomores feel that they have made a very good showing in
their first year in Albany high school.

WE, the Freshman class of "34," who have had such an interesting year
of school, wish to thank our advisers who have helped us: Miss
Kizer, our class adviser, the Eoco Club directory Miss Pratt of the Girls'
League, and Mr. Mickelson, adviser of the M.E.N. Besides our advisers,
We are especially thankful for our splendid class ofiicers.
Although we have not made a very large mark on the calendar of ath-
letics, vve have produced some good prospects for high school sports.
We have enjoyed several parties and taken part in plays sponsored by
the Eoco Club. "Money for J am," given the first of the year: "Telegram,"
on January 193 and "Elmer," on April 9, were some of the comedies present-
ed by the club.
We have a sincere appreciation for those who have helped us in such
a splendid Way through our freshman year.

Cetmtirall Freshman Class
EETHE Doors of Wisdom Are Never Shut." So said Poor Richard. The
Freshman class found this to be true when they entered Central
School on September, 1933.
"All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy." Therefore, after
schedules had been adjusted, the class turned its attention toward athletics.
The freshman teams made a good showing in football, basketball,
baseball, and track. The girls participated in basketball and baseball.
However, their major activity was promoting ice cream sales. The profits
of these went to the Girls' Group treasury.
The end of January marked the departure of the 9A class of fresh-
men for high school.
An outstanding social event in February was the annual tea given by
the Girls' Group in honor of their mothers. It was then that the playlet,
"The Spinning Maidens," was presented.
"Now Good Digestion, Wait upon Appetite, and Health upon Both."
In March, among other things, was the Industrial Arts banquet, when the
girls of the domestic arts class Were hostesses to the faculty and the in-
dustrial arts class.
"Mark the Music." The Central school orchestra has furnished
music for programs and assemblies throughout the year. When Music
Week was observed at Central, the freshman class choruses added volume
with their original class songs.
"The Merrie Month of May." The freshman class took active part
in May Day festivities, sports, parade, and exhibit.
The freshman class leaves Central for high school with many well-

HE debate teams of Albany high school, even though they did not win
the district championship, which position they have held for several
years, proved their strength by defeating both Corvallis teams, present
champions of this district.
The question for debate was: Resolved, that the United States Should
Adopt the Essential Features of the British System of Radio Control and
Operation. Martha Bibb, affirmative, and Blanche McClellan, negative, were
veterans who formed the nucleus of the teams. Dorothy Sanders, affirma-
tive, and Dermal Robertson, negative, were the first speakers. Alberta
Gillett and Roxie White were affirmative alternates.
The Albany chapter of the National Forensic League, an honorary
society for debaters, was organized on March 14. Dermal Robertson was
elected president, Blanche McClellan, vice-president, and Dorothy Sanders,

HE Albany high school band, one of the most valuable organizations in
the school, was established in 1912 by Mr. Hudson and Mr. Finnerty.
Since then, this organization has become noted throughout the Pacific coast
and as far east as Denver, where the band competed in the national contest
in 1930. In the contest in Colorado we received commendation for the work,
although we could not "place" because of lack of instrumentation.
This year Mr. Loren Luper, who succeeded Mr. W. T. Nicholls, is
directing the band. Mr. Luper is producing a very excellent band which
will bring honor to the school.
The band assists by playing at all important athletic contests and by
playing for parades and community functions in and about Albany.
Each year the band participates in the state band contest, which was
held this year at Corvallis on April 21. The band placed among the four
highest in this contest. The band also gives an annual concert which is
always well received by the people of the city.
The personnel of the band is as follows:
Clarinets: Dick Littler, Willie Frager, Orris Trumpets: B u d Hockett. B o b Douglas,
Carnegie, Clifford Burton, Jack Looney, Kenton Bradley, Woodrow Truax, Bob
Howard Sternberg, J o h n McPherson, Groshong, L a r r y Alexander, Charles

HE members of the Albany High School Orchestra pay tribute to the
memory of their beloved leader, Prof. W. T. Nicholls, whose much re-
gretted death occurred just prior to the opening of the school year.
Under the able leadership of Mr. Loren Luper, the new director, the
orchestra has continued to maintain the same high standard established by
Prof. Nicholls. Mr. Luper has innovated several new ideas in the music de-
partment and has stimulated interest among the younger students who are
training for this group.
During the year the orchestra has played for assemblies and all high
school entertainments. The musicians have also broadcast several programs
over K. O. A.C. in Corvallis. These radio appearances furnish valuable experi-
ence so that the players may later be heard on the air.
At the beginning of the year, three officers were chosen to lead the
organization. The twenty-seven students now playing represent an increase
over last year's membership. Since the senior members are graduating,
this will leave an opening for new students, but the spirit of the orchestra
will still be "marching on."
The orchestra is composed of the following:

Bill Morgan, Daisy Ashton, Violet Smith,

HE A.H.S. Glee Club has had an interesting and busy year under its
new instructor, Mr. Luper. At the beginning of the year about forty
members, both boys and girls, enrolled in the organization. They did not
present an operetta this year, but they sang several times and had a prom-
inent part in the annual band concert.
During the last part of the school year a girls' glee club was organized.
Twenty-four girls were chosen to go to Forest Grove to the State Music Con-
test. A gigs' quartet was also sent to Forest Grove, where it Won third
place. The members were Mary Edith Rohrbough, first soprano: Irene
Kenagy, second sopranog Edith Anderson, first altog and Elaine Chandler,
Only one soloist went to the contest--Sidney Burt, who Won second
place in the boys' medium voice class.
The A.H.S. trio was organized at the beginning of the year. This
trio was composed of Mary Edith Rohrbough, Irene Kenagy, and Elaine
Chandler. These girls have sung not only at high school entertainments,
but on programs at churches, clubs, and community halls.
The trio furnished part of the vocal music for the Commencement.

How it dances, prances
Down, down, down,
White mist and spray
Where fishes playg
And rushing. gushing,
Its rainbow crown
Is gleaming, shining in the sun
When the day has just begun.
How it tumbles, rumbles
Down, down, down,
Gloomy sky today,
Grey mist and spray,
Where, groaning. moaning
It wears a frown,
Mighty, powerful waterfall--
A moody, sullen, threatening call.

Majestic, rising toward the sky,
Here towers a forest ever green,
To mark, as ages journey by,
God's monument to pioneers!
Here rustle mantles of dull green,
In ages laden with white snow.
Here sings the wind her lullabies.
Through boughs of silver, hear it blow!
God's monument to pioneers!
Here stands the sign of ages past,
The trees that years ago did grow.
Here stands our forest, honored now
By all, who never let it go!
God 's monument to pioneers!

Yuletide lights send thoughts of cheer
To friends our hearts have made so near,
Lights upon our Christmas tree
Are tokens of our love for Thee.
Wandering sons who've gone astray,
Greetings send from far away
To them our thoughts this eve take fiight,
When lights are dim and fires are bright.

You wonder, World
Why I fling on the gay role of a fool
And laugh and jest as worlds come tumbling
About my earsfwhile others crouch and
Wrapped fitly in the sackcloth of the mind.
Now will I tell.
You snarl and show your teeth at me,
Have you not heard the coward in my voice?
If that same voice should prove my worst
You'd tear my heart to hear my agony.
Some men have uttered lies: but I act mine.
Say truly-do you now think me a fool?

Summer now is waning,
Still her glory's reigning.
With all her colors changing,
To russet, gold, and blue.

Cinder's in the making.
Pumpkin pies are baking,
For Halloween is near.
Feathered friends have flown,
Since North Winds have blown.
Yet sunshine still is known,
While summer lingers near.

Forget about the Big, Bad Wolf
With all its want and woeg
We've heard that mournful tune enough,
Let's have another go.
Let's think about the future
With better times in store,
Let's get behind and do our part,
Perhaps a little more.
We know the dollars have been scarce,
Of that there is no doubt,
But smile, and keep oi smiling,
This is no time to pout.
There never was a road so long
It did not have aturn,
And each and everyone of us
Have all got that to learn.
How time Bunlllldlog Goff Ellis Flat
Once long ago, so stories tell,
Vthen all were friends and then did dwell
In a magic garden and so could speak,
They had a quarrel over which were weak.
The dogs decided to have a race.
The strongest would come in first place,
The winner, then their king would be,
And rule them through eternity.
The race track was picked along the wall
That enclosed the garden, then dogs large
Each dog that would race, went into
For that championship race, and did much
Then at last the race day came.
Each dog hoped he would win much fame.
They lined up next to the garden wall,
Then started off, as one and all.
The Bulldog led, he was very fast,
I think the Chinese Chow was last,
And besides these two, there were between
An assortment of dogs as never was seen.
They came to a corner in the wall,
Bulldog saw it not at all.
He was running so fast, in that race
That he rammed his nose into his face!
That is the story, let us suppose,
Of how the Bulldog got his Hat nose.
The moral is this, if l might imply:
"Be careful and don't give yourself a black
A eye "
Who are these green, shaking foundlings
Looking for familiar surroundings,
Rushing, blushing into classes,
Throwing shy, inquiring glances
At their fellows and their teachers,
As they sit with stiffened features
Waiting 'til their doom is sealed,
By long assignments unrevealed.
In the halls their feet are pacing,
While their minds are madly racing
Over classes, now retracing
All the problems they are facing,
And they ponder here awhile
Yonder, erstwhile ser iors smile.
But if they try, they need not fear,
They'll be juniors in a year.
The Sea Yoimnllll Have To Saiiill
You're off, oh worthy seniors, now,
To sail the rugged seag
And only you may set the sail
To mark your destiny.
For some shall set the old ship's sail
And when the wlnd does blow,
They'll find they're pulled far down into
The dark, dark depths below.
And others shall not take the time
To set their sails, and so
When winds do come their way, they'll find
That they're pushed to and fro.
The wiser ones shall set their sail
To take them straight ahead.
Until they reach their goal, "Success,"
They'll not give up as dead.
Will you be one to set your sail
To be blown down below?
Or will you leave the sail alone,
And be blown to and fro?
Or will you be among the Wise.
And see your sails set true,
That you may reach beyond the goal
That is ahead of you?
There was a preposterous poet,
Who was clever, but never could show it.

EURING the past school year, the Student Body Association has been very
active. Since a fine spirit of cooperation has existed between the
officers and members, this has resulted in a very successful year for the
The annual sophomore reception was the first social event of the year.
At that time, the student body became better acquainted and welcomed the
new members to Albany High School.
One of the greatest achievements of the Student Body Association this
year was the purchase of theater seats for the assembly.
Numerous groups working under the auspices of the Student Body have
made fine records this year. A number of new organizations have been
created and are working as a part of the high school. Altogether, it has
been a very successful year and an even better one is anticipated for next
year under the leadership of the new officers.

certs, and the carnival. It also has the responsibility of nominating candi-
dates for student body offices and the selecting of the debate manager.

The Girls' League in the first assembly of the year presented a most
interesting and successful program.
The initiatory service was exemplified at a special league meeting in
November. This depicted the standards of an ideal high school girl.
The "mother and daughter" banquet, an important event of the
school year, was given by the Girls' League on February 9, 1934. Attended
by more than two hundred mothers and daughters, the banquet proved to be
a most successful undertaking. Mrs. Rex Dallas was the speaker, and a
very interesting program was presented. Because of' its outstanding suc-
cess, the girls plan to make the "mother and daughter" banquet an annual

Girllsl Athletic Association
THE Girls' Athletic Association has done a great deal of work this year
and has inaugurated several new projects. The girls have organized
a "pep" section to lead the yells at football games. The members of this
group wore yellow sweaters with blue "A's" to carry out the school colors.
The "pep" section attended all the football games and several times put on
novel stunts between halves.
The activities of the association have netted enough money to pay current
expenses such as the Whirlwind Annual picture and all other items that have
In January, the G.A.A. members gave an initiation party for the new
members of the association. Approximately fifty members were initiated.
'Ihe senior G.A.A. girls hope that this association will continue next
year, as it has this year, and that it will be as successful.

THE Albany High School Commercial Club was organized in 1923 by Irene
Kendall, shorthand teacher. The purpose of the club at that time was
to stimulate interest in commercial subjects and to give these students a
chance for some social recreation.
The commercial club has several services to perform each year. Their
main social service for this year was to donate to the Red Cross at Christ-
mas time. Their service to the school is to sell popcorn at all the athletic
contests and all public affairs.
Eligibility to this club is a I in shorthand, typing, or bookkeeping for
one six weeks period or aII in any of these subjects for two consecutive
periods of the same length.
Through the efforts of the teachers of the commercial subjects a great
deal of interest has been stimulated and the membership of the club is about
fifteen per cent of the student body of the high school. At the present time
it is one of the outstanding organizations of Albany High School.

rniiillll and Scroll
UILL and Scroll, the international honorary society for high school jour-
nalists, was organized for the purpose of promoting better journalism
in high schools.
To become a member, one must be scholastically in the upper third of
his class, must be outstanding in some phase of the Work, must be recom-
mended by the journalistic supervisors in the high school, and must be ac-
cepted by the national officers of the society.
Meetings are held each month at the home of some member.
A dinner and entertainment were sponsored in December for the en-
tire journalism department, with Mr. Thomas D. Potwin of the Democrat-
Herald speaking on newspaper work.
The first formal initiation ever given by the local chapter was held
in February. Eight candidates were initiated at that time. Mrs. Sheba
Hargreaves, noted Oregon writer, spoke most interestingly on journalism
as a vocation.
The many activities of Quill and Scroll during the school year of
1933-1934 indicate a growing interest in high school journalism.

THE Hi-Y is an honorary organization whose purpose is to create, to main-
tain, and to extend through the school and community high standards.
The membership is limited to seventeen boys, chosen for scholarship, leader-
ship, and a good Christian character. The Hi-Y is one of the live-wire
organizations of the school.
This year the club sponsored the annual "father and son" banquet
with great success. Sam Dolan, well-known football referee, spoke to the
boys and their fathers. The Hi-Y also was responsible for two huge rally
bonfires for the Tillamook and Corvallis football games.
At the first of the year opera seats for the assembly were purchased
by the student body, and after they were erected, the Hi-Y boys were
appointed to act as ushers.
The club also sponsored an annual pay assembly. A program of short
skits full of wit and humor had the audience laughing most of the time.
The feature of the day was the German band, made up of the musical
members of the Hi-Y. The club can always be depended upon to accom-
plish what it sets out to do.

HIS is the second year for the Shorthand Club. Shorthand III and IV
students organized the club on October 19, 1932, for the purpose of
creating interest in shorthand. At the beginning of the year, meetings
were held during the noon hour, but members voted to change the time to
the sixth period.
When the club was first organized, only shorthand III and IV students
could join, but this year we decided to include shorthand II students in our
organization. On March 2 we had a progressive dinner and initiated nine-
teen new members. The group pictures for the Annual were taken on that
night. Just before the close of the school year We elected our officers for

The symbol of the club is the Betty Lamp. It holds an honored posi-
tion during initiation services. The purpose of the club is to embody the
ideals for which a modern high school home economics course stands. It
gives emphasis to the phase of human relationships and provides such duties
for officers as will relate the club to home activities and make it possible for
a considerable number of club members to participate.
Some of the activities of the club this year are the presentation of
initiation ceremony for district conference: the football banquetg the "father

A CHAPTER of the National Honor Society was installed in Albany High
School in the late spring of 1933 through the efforts of Mr. Putnam.
One of the rules of this organization is that only fifteen per cent of any grad-
uating Senior A class, ten per cent of the Senior B, and five per cent of the
Junior A class may belong to this society. The students are selected by the
faculty on the basis of character, scholarship, service, and leadership.
The Sigma Lambda chapter of Salem put on the first initiatory serv-
ice in our assembly in 1933, and the following students became members:
Seniors, Lois Hartsock, Erma Mesman, Pauline Higbee, Alice Silk, George
Bikman, Orris Carnegie, Leon Muller, and Wayne Safleyg juniors, Blanche
McClellan, Martha Bibb, Bob Potts, and Henry Stewart.
In the fall of 1933 Irene Kenagy, Roxie White, Mary Louise Olliver,
Mary Ann Ridders, Ed Earp, Ralph Senders, Leonard Brush, and George
Andrus were initiated.
In February six more seniors came into this society, making a total
of sixteen students or fifteen per cent of the graduating class, which fills
the quota allowed. The honored students were: Hazel Haley, Marion Wy-
man, Viola Burck, Roger Putnam. Sidney Burt, and Veryl Brown. Morris
Dowd, Delmar Hammond, Margaret Fenton, and Jane Lee were initiated
The purpose of the honor society is to give a reward to outstanding
students and to serve the school at all times.

Fair two first prizes and one second prize were won in shop work. Many
honors and prizes have been won in the sectional and state contests.
The Albany Chapter was one of the few chapters in the state to re-
ceive the Keystone citation this year.
Robert Groshong and Clifton Plagmann won the State Farmer degree
because of outstanding home projects, scholarship, and school activities, and
Kenneth Cunningham won the Master Farmer degree.
In recreational and athletics contests we have had a very successful
year. A two-day camping trip to Marion Lake, monthly meetings and pro-
grams, exchange meetings with the Corvallis and Lebanon chapters, a par-
ent and son banquet, and covered dish dinner were given. We have assisted
in numerous community programs, two radio broadcasts, and State F.F.A.
programs. Six basketball games were played with Independence, Corvallis,
and Lebanon Chapters, we won five out of the six.
Over seventy-five per cent of the boys are participating in the co-op-
erative associations: Junior Cow Testing Association, Swine Marketing As-
sociation, Co-operative Seed Buying and Potato Marketing Association under
the supervision of the Albany F.F.A. Chapter. A co-operative bean project
is being started this spring at the Burkhart School grounds.
Leonard Brush, Kenneth Holmes, Dwight Black, and Ralph Walker
are winners of the official F.F.A. letter.

THE Mathematics Club isa new organization in Albany High School.
Heretofore the Science Club was partly taking its place. Because of
the feeling that the mathematics phase was not given enough attention in
the Science Club, it was suggested that a club be organized purely for
The organization took place in the early part of January, when approx-
imately thirty members enrolled. A constitution was drafted to comply with
the general principles and regulations of the club.
The club was organized upon the suggestion of Miss Worley and Miss
Porter. Students from algebra, geometry, and trigonometry classes are re-
presented in the club membership.
The general aim of this organization, of course, is to promote the fur-
ther study of mathematics and to reveal valuable information which is not
gained in the class room study.
Interesting programs were arranged for the meetings which afforded
sidelights upon the various uses of mathematics.

The "dope bucket" was upset with the defeat of Woodburn, 7 to 0.
The touchdown came in the third quarter as a result of a recovered fum-
ble on the Woodburn 35 yard line. It was bucked over after a series of
plays by Bud Robertson, fullback. The two teams were about evenly
matched in strength, and the field was very muddy. It was a real battle.
Saturday, November 4
Albany defeated Cottage Grove 7 to 0 in one of the hardest fought
games of the season. The deciding factor in the conflict was a freak
catch of a pass made by Albert Stanley. A f t e r t h e ball was
hit, juggled, and tossed around, it settled into his arms over the goal
The only major mishap of the season was in the first play of the game
when Bob Feuerstein, star center, broke his leg.
Albany's arch enemy, Corvallis, was defeated 20 to 12 in one of the
outstanding games of the season.
The striking play of the game and probably the best of the season
was the touchdown in the first play. It was made by Budlong, who
grounded his own kickoff over the goal line.
Touchdowns: Davis, Budlong, and Olson.
University High was overwhelmed by Albany in its game at Central
field by a score of 33 to 0.
The referees made a statement after the game to the effect that
Albany was the best coached team they had had the opportunity to see
Touchdowns: Davis 2, Roberts 2, Robertson 1.
Wednesday, November 29
The final game of the season was played Thanksgiving Day at Leb-
anon. Albany defeated them 7 to 0. The game was not without its
thrills. Five minutes before the end of the last quarter, Robertson scored
the winning points on a buck through the center of the line.
And so we have gone through a third successful season since the
responsibility of high school athletics was taken over by Coach Elling-
sen in 1931.
Reviewing the nine conflicts with six victories, two ties, and one
defeat, we are very much pleased with this showing and contemplate
many more victories under our "Coach."

Scenes from a asllretlballll Court
THE 1934 basketball season at Albany High formed a climax to the school's
major athletics. There was some early skepticism as to the quality of
the team this year. However, after the season was under way, this feeling
vanished, and the largest crowds of fans that have been seen in many years
turned out to witness the games.
Thirty athletes turned out, including six lettermen of the preceding
year. These were Davis, Robertson, Arthur, Putnam, Fowler, and Frager.
As the season advanced, a squad of ten were picked. They included the six
above with Groening, first team forward: Manning, reserve centerg Lindley
and Misner, reserve guards.
Out of the twenty-three times on the floor the team came off sixteen
times victorious. These included a sectional championship in a two out of
three games series with Lebanon, the Linn county championship, and the
consolation winner of the District No. 12 meet.
We have been witnesses of the battlefield of hard fighting, clean
young athletes, with Coach Ellingsen as their general. The training in
sportsmanship and exactness given these boys by "Coach" is priceless to all
boys and will be remembered long by those whom he trained.
The battles, if we would call them such, have been more than satis-
factory to all involved, and we shall look to the coming 1935 season for an-
other such team to come along and fight the battles for us, and we most
surely shall not be disappointed.
Albany vs. Sweet Home, 28-4. This game, the opening of the season, was
Albany vs. Shedd, 24-18. The game was well played, but as yet the team
had not settled down.
Albany vs. Springfield, January 5, 14-15. The first official encounter of
the season was met in defeat, although the game was played on a
fairly equal basis.
Albany vs. Plainview, January 10, 18-8. A new method of play had been
developed and was tried in this game which worked smoothly.
Albany vs. Oregon City, January 16, 36-16. Because of fine floor work
and good passing, the Bulldogs defeated an old rival.
Albany vs. University High, January 20, 10-16. The team didn't "click"
in this game and lost, because of the Bulldogs' failure to hit the basket.
Albany vs. Lebanon, January 23, 18-12. This game, the first of a two
out of three game series, was one of the best played games of the
Albany vs. Springfield, January 26, 26-14. The game was very smoothly
executed and showed much hard work on the part of the coach and his

series with Corvallis, the Bulldogs were not up to their regular

quested by Corvallis as a charity game, and Albany lost the game after
a hard fight.
Albany vs. Lebanon, March 9, 24-14. The game was well played, Albany
leading throughout and winning with ease.
Albany vs. Sweet Home, March 10 fA.M.J, 36-4. The Sweet Home team
was no match for the Albany team, which was very accurate in its shoot-
ing and passing.
Albany vs. Plainview, March 10 fP.M.l, 22-11. The Bulldogs played exceed-
ingly well. This game gave Albany the championship of Linn County
and a silver trophy.

quintet of players from Silverton in the first game of the District

THE track season this year shows a very promising group of ambitious
athletes. There are twenty boys turning out, six of whom are letter-
men of the preceding season, 1933. Around these the team has been built.
Two meets have been entered by Albany this year: One with Stay-
ton, in which we easily won, and one with Corvallis, which we also won.
The district track meet was entered on Saturday, May 12, and the candidates

THE Golf Club, a new organization in the high school this year, was
formed for the golf-playing boys. The purpose of developing a good
golf team has been realized, for about a dozen boys have joined the club, the
largest turnout for a long time. Mr. Glass acts as adviser and allows the
boys to play on his golf course, the Bridgeway Golf Course. P
The team plans to play matches with Corvallis, Dallas, Salem, Uni-
versity High, Silverton, and Eugene. Although the team has but one
letterman, Bob Williamson, it expects to win most of its matches.
The team is in District III, which is composed of Eugene High, Cor-
vallis High, University High of Eugene and Albany. Other matches will
not count as far as the league is concerned. Of the first five matches
played, the team has won three and lost two. It defeated University High
twice, Psi Kappa Nu Fraternity of Grant High, once, and was defeated
twice by Corvallis.
The personnel of the team is as follows: Bob Williamson, Shirley
Bates, Bud Hockett, Earl Fortmiller, and Lloyd Finnell.

'UNDER the leadership of Miss Lucile Murphy, girls' athletic instructor,
the girls of Albany High School have taken an active interest in sports
throughout the year. Miss Murphy successfully introduced an intramural
schedule for nearly all of the sports.
The year started with volleyball. This sport was held in Central
School gym every sixth period. From the start, the members of the gym
class took an active part in this sport. From each of the three classes a
team was chosen, and practice was begun. Ida McNeil, volleyball manager,
arranged a schedule of games. After many hard-fought games, the seniors
emerged victorious. Members of the senior team were Jeannette McClain
ccaptainl, Geneva McClain, Alberta Gillett, Kathryn Riley, Edith Price,
Alverna Ehrlich, and J errine Gordon.
About the time that the girls finished their volleyball tournament,
the boys' basketball season began. This made it necessary to transfer the
girls to the Madison school gymnasium. Here basketball practice was
started. Again the intramural schedule was followed. Catherine Smith
was chosen to be the basketball manager. For about six weeks each of the
three classes fought for supremacy, but after an exhibition of excellent
teamwork, the junior class won the championship.
Members of this team and substitutes included: Forwards, Julianne
Fortmiller, Daisy Ashton, Jean Merrill, Shirley Thomas, guards, Catherine
Smith fcaptainb, Mary Cozad, Ruth Moore, Alta Haley, Geraldine Bodine:
centers, Glenrose Whitney, Ida McNeil, Julianne Fortmiller, a n d Betty
After basketball, practice on stunts was started. The object of this
phase was to give the girls a chance to earn extra points for the Girls' Ath-
letic Association. There was a choice of stunts, which included basketball
accuracy shots and throws and acrobatics. It was necessary for each girl to
pass ten stunts in order to get ten points.
After folk dancing, an altogether new sport was introduced--namely,
speedball. This game is similar to soccer, but it is played with some of the
spirit of football. Eleven members are necessary for each team fthe teams
being made up of mixed classes.J The ball must be kicked unless it bounces
or is kicked above knee level, then it is passed until dropped by a player.
This sport proved to be one of the most interesting and exciting games ever
introduced for girls in Albany High. After a six weeks tournament, involv-
ing a tie, the championship was won by Catherine Smith's team, which de-
feated the team headed by Jean Merrill.
At the close of the speedball season, the girls were given a choice of
activities for the remainder of the school year. One choice was golf at the
Bridgeway course under the direction of Sam Glass, or baseball and track
under the supervision of Miss Murphy. Several girls reported for golf,
while the rest remained for track. These sports were met with enthusiasm.
The '33-'34 school year has been one of the most successful seasons
for girls' athletic activities in the history of the school.

,Albany High Scchocoll Printing Department
THE above picture shows the original print shop in Albany High School
as it was furnished in 1926. Since then, many improvements have
been added, and this has greatly increased the efficiency of the shop.
The material and machinery were purchased with funds accumulated
from student activities over a period of years and saved for that purpose.
The instructor is paid from funds derived through the publication of
the school paper, in payment for subscription for which half the student
body dues are used, through charges for printing for the various student
A A lf activities, and for the necessary printing for district number five.
l, lllilll H Each year seven issues of the WHIRLWIND paper are printed in the
Y W A l y W shop. The advisers for the paper since 1926 have been Miss Moore, Miss
p y ii, i Kendall, Mrs. Bergholz, Miss Thayer, Miss Braden, and Mrs. Penland.
M All the work of setting the type is done by the journalism students, who are
ll Wil , required to work in the shop three days a Week under the direction of Mr.
,pfli,l f Grigsby. The Annual is a souvenir edition of the WHIRLWIND paper.
This Annual was printed in the shop and is the iirst one ever to be pub-
pil, g y lished there.
