EXCEPTIONAL in its natural resources, marvel-
1JT ous in its recreational advantages, noteworthy
for its high type of citizenship, and rich in the
heritage of history, is Linn County in the State of
Oregon. Its 1,445,120 acres include one of the best
areas of timber in the United States and lands suit-
able for many kinds of diversified agriculture and
horticulture and, with raw materials at hand, suitable
for various kinds of manufacturing development.
With its almost matchless climate it is a wonderful
place to live and truly is a scene for the attainment
of the summit of human endeavor and the maximum
of human happiness. Named for Dr. Lewis F. Linn,
a United States Senator from the State of Missouri,
who was instrumental in the passage of the Donation
Land Claim law which played a material part in
inducing settlement in Oregon, and the sixth county
created in the territory of Oregon, Linn County has
played a prominent part in the history of the state in
which it is situated.
It has been customary to dedicate this annual
review of activities of the Albany High School to
some individual. This year it h a s been decided to
make Linn County the theme of this book to call the
attention of today’s youth, the citizens of the future,
to the advantages of the county in which we live
and with whose future and progress we shall soon be

Her laughing eyes, her winning ways will never be gone from
those who knew her; she was the embodiment of youth, of charm,
and of loveliness, our Merilee.
On December 24, 1920, Mr. and Mrs. Jed Looney became the
proud parents of a baby girl. Through her early childhood she dis-
played the traits that were to endear her to so many of us.
Her first years of education were spent at Central School—
there she became a universal favorite with her associates, belong-
ing to many organizations and attaining scholastic honors.
In the early years of her life. Professor Justin Miller taught
her the art of music. Through his help she won wide recognition at
state music contests both in difficult composition and in hymns.
When she entered high school, her ability to lead gained her
the position of Drum Major with the high school band; she was
elected a member of “17”; and she was a prominent member of the
Rainbow girls and of the United Presbyterian Church.
On July 31, 1937, our Merilee met the Great Reaper with the
knowledge that she had spent her short life well—that her living had
not been in vain because of the happiness that was granted to us—
her friends-, who loved her.
SUPERINTENDENT F. B. BENNETT PRINCIPAL E. A. HUDSON
When we lost our superintendent, Rex Putnam, we thought that it would be impossible to find
a man who could take his place in the lives and activities of our young people. However, our board
very wisely selected our present superintendent, Frank B. Bennett.
Mr. Bennett has had a very wide experience as an educator, and already we are learning to
admire and respect h.im. He has shown a deep sympathy and wealth of understanding in the
problems of the students of the high school.
We are very fortunate in having such a fine, scholarly gentleman for superintendent. He has
already won the whole-hearted support and backing of the entire community.
Through the years, when our days in this high school are but dimly recalled, the memory of
our principal will remain.
The one person who lent his assistance to every student—the man who held and guided the
reins of student activities, and who brought honor and glory to Albany High School then, and in years
to come—is Mr. Hudson.
We, the students of today and tomorrow, salute you.

Behind every successful institution are the directors on whose shoulders rest the final respons-
ibility. Their wisdom and unselfish service determine the direction of our schools.
We pause here to pay a tribute of respect and appreciation to our Board. We have found them
strong men, men sympathetic to educational needs, and men impelled by a common motive of
service. Albany City Schools stand as a monument to and an evidence of the excellent direction of
our School Board.

In 1934, the senior class entered Madison and Central. Merle Long
was elected president at Madison, and Bob Spence was president of

The D.A. R. good fellowship medal, awarded annually to an out-
standing senior girl, was presented to Mabel Forster.
Erros Penland was editor of the Whirlwind during the first, and, for
the second semester, Clarence Burck was chosen editor of the paper.
The name of the senior play was ‘‘Jane Eyre. ” This play was direct-
ed by Mrs. Childs. The senior class put on the Christmas program.

shall have many pleasant memories.

In 1935, the junior class began its four years of activity for Albany
high school in the two junior high schools. The Central group select-
ed Alvin Oberson as president, and the Madison group chose Thurston
In 1936, our first year in the high school building, the following of-
ficers were elected: Alvin Oberson, president; Clarence Wicks, vice
president; Henrietta Stratton, secretary; Shirley Bryant, treasurer; and
Bill Kean, student body representative. Miss Schulze was adviser.
In this, the year of 1937-38, the following officers were elected:
Pete Fisk, president; Thurston Gilchrist, vice president; Alice Merrill,
secretary; Gayle Loftin, treasurer; Mirvin Stenberg, student body rep-
resentative: Mr. Palmer, adviser.
Since we are a large class, we were well represented this year in
all activities. Members of our class shone in athletics and also in the
less spectacular fields of music and debating.
A junior play, “Don’t Ever Grow Up, ” was staged in March to
raise funds for giving the seniors a proper send-off.
We look back over the past year with satisfaction, and look for-
ward with expectation to the new.

At 8:45 A.M. September 20, 1937, a new steamliner filled with an unus-
ually interesting group of young men and women, stopped in front of the sta-
tion, AlbanyHigh School. Out scrambled, jumped, and descended the brand
new sophomores. We were met at the door by august seniors and doubting
juniors, who were there to inspect and criticize or command as they saw fit.
To the senior, this was an ordinary bunch of sophomores with very little
promise. So they stared and then went on about their business. To the
juniors, the group offered a new source of amusement. Here was a chance to
make up for the suffering that they had endured during the previous year.
So they plotted, planned, and devised ways and means of making life
miserable for this new group. They misdirected gullible, innocent students.
They frightened timid ones by telling them of the horrible initiation soon
to come. They warned them of the instructors who were veritable ogres
with none of that quality of mercy described in Shakespeare. All in all, they
made the way to graduation seem a long, tedious, and nearly impossible hill
Several week passed; finally out of darkness and ignorance came a cer-
tain amount of light, and we began to get our bearings, so to speak. We
organized as a class and chose Miss Stanford for class adviser. We chose
as class officers: Wallace Hunter, president; Dick McReynolds, vice presi-
dent: Dorothy Dvorak, secretary: Jack Prince, treasurer: Lois Burck, student
body representative; Herbert Byerley and Edith Bailey, rally committee.
These officers have proved themselves well fitted for the positions and have
served the class well.
Members of the sophomore class who were outstanding in sports were
Dick McReynolds and Jack Bird, football: Jim Shough, Herbert Byerley, and
Royal Cox in basketball.
At Christmas time the class contributed loyally for charity.
The class gave the Washington Day assembly program. The program
consisted of songs, a patriotic drill, a reading, and a play which made a
modern boy of “The Father of Our Country.” David Gowans, as George
Washington, was defeated for the first time when he awkwardly and
disastrously proposed marriage to a young lady of Virginia, played in a
charming manner by Edith Cox. Ruth Ehrlich furnished the comedy element
as an old Virginia “mammy.”
Two sophomore girls won first and second prizes in the Constitutional
Essay Contest. The winners were Lucy Alice McAfee, first and Georgia Ann
Social events sponsored by the class were a skating party at Lewisburg
on March 30, and a class dance on May 10.
All in all, the sophomore class of 1937-38 “got away to a fine start,” and
it promises to develop in 1939 into the most ultra-ultra group of seniors that
have yet left the portals of Albany High School.Aldrich, Dick

This year the Girls Federation started successfully with a new leader, Miss Clara Voyen.
The first important event of the year was a Big Sister party in the auditorium: after this, regular
monthly meetings were held.
The theme for these meetings was the development of charm. Very interesting skits on this
subject were given by the members of the committees.
The financial success of the year meant the establishment of Bulldog Bites, a little store in
The Federation was headed by a committee of seventeen girls called “Seventeen.” This group

The organization of the Associated Treasurers is formulated to bring into closer relationship
the student association and the treasurers of the high school organizations so that they may work
together more systematically.
Active membership is composed of the treasurer of each organization, activity, and class in
the high school. The Student Body treasurer automatically becomes president of the group, and a
secretary is elected from among the members.
The rules and regulations state that every member shall attend meetings unless prevented by
illness; each member shall keep a complete record of the transactions of his organization and file a copy
at the student bank.
Although regular meetings were inactive, each member has cooperated and served to the
best of his ability.
Helen Merrill, treasurer of the Student Body, is president; Marian Marks, treasurer of the
Honor Society, is secretary; and Miss Voyen, supervisor of the Student Bank, is the adviser.
The present stage crew was organized in 1936, just as soon as the new auditorium was
finished. Jack Cheeseman was stage manager and was in charge of the scenery for all productions.
His assistants included the whole production shop class. Donald Nebergall, Harold Banton, and Orris
Willard assisted Cheeseman with the actual stage work, which includes maintenance of the stage,
curtain adjustments, and the handling of lights.
This year Harold Banton was appointed stage manager, with Orris Willard as his chief assis-
tant for the handling of actual stage work. The production shop classes built all scenery, which
included a number of large scenes for the Carnival.
The stage crew has put in many long hours for school productions without compensation of
any kind. The boys do all of the work just for what pleasure and experience that they can get out of it.
Mr. Palmer, instructor of Industrial Arts, and Mr. Hudson, principal of the high school, are
the advisers of the crew, and their assistance is greatly appreciated. Without them the stage work
would be a big undertaking, but they know by long experience the best ways to finish the work promptly.

The Albany High School band is one of the major activities of the school: in fact, it is an asset
to the whole community. It has played for many parades as well as for nearly all the major activ-
ities of the school, such as plays and assemblies.
The band played in the Class A for the high school bands of Oregon and was placed in the
“excellent” division, with a rating over Salem and Corvallis.
The band membership this year has increased by ten over last year’s forty-five. The school
also has purchased new instruments for the band so that now the band has a very good instrumen-
tation. This adds a great deal to the performance of the band.
The officers of the band this year are Ed Goman, president; Bryan Roberts, vice president:
Kathryn Sorenson, secretary: Mr. Luper, director.
Tra, la. la, la. If one would pass the door of room 104, any school day at three o’clock, no
doubt the melodious sounds of “Elinor” or perhaps the difficult arrangement of “Lift Thine Eyes”
would assail their ears. The Albany High School Glee Club, under the capable direction of Mrs.
Volena Johnston, is completing one of the most fruitful years since its early existence.
In early October, some sixty girls answered the call for female voices. After much practice
and long hours, “The Rose of the Danube,” a rollicking, mirthful, comedy operetta was presented
January 28, in the high school auditorium. This proved to be highly successful.
After the cares of light lyrics were over, the members of the Glee Club took up the perfect-
ing of intricate arrangements of Zamecnick and Mendelssohn. In the spring the call of nature became
urgent, and during Music Week the Glee Club entertained at several program. After these festivities,
the songsters took an active part in the high school carnival, “From Broadway to Dixie.”
The officers for the year were president, Henrietta Stratton: vice president, Vivian Brigham:
secretary-treasurer, Bette Taylor.
The orchestra has been an organized musical attraction for the past twenty-five years.
The orchestra usually takes a prominent part during assemblies and is called upon to furnish
music for various school plays throughout the year.
In addition to the County Health Institute each year the orchestra broadcasts a program from
Since the new auditorium has been used for Commencement, the orchestra has been available
for that event.
Several of the members continue to play in the Albany Symphony Orchestra, which gives
two concerts a year.
The orchestra meets twice weekly to prepare music for entertainment.
The following persons were chosen as officers for this year: Mildred Aya, president: Don
Maddux, vice president: Warren Wickman, secretary-treasurer: Orris Willard, manager.

students, are examples of the activities of the Student Body Association. The student bank is yet
another activity of the school.
The annual carnival and carnival queen election is managed by this association.
The officers of the Student Body are Bob Spence, president: Merle Long, vice president: Vir-
ginia Hackleman, secretary; and Helen Merrill, treasurer. Mr. Hudson, our principal, is adviser to

The play, “Aunt Cindy Cleans Up,” was a three-act comedy and provided two hours of fun
and laughter for an appreciative audience. Don Nebergall, the man-hating Aunt Cindy, kept the
audience in hysterics as she first repulsed and then accepted the advances of Parker Tubbs, portrayed
by Leroy Warner. The scene was laid in the summer bungalow of Claire Harlow, enacted by Henri-
etta Stratton, who is visited by her shy and retiring friend, Lotus Clayton, taken by Erros Penland.
The play was swift-moving, and the plot carried through to the end. The fine supporting cast
included Bryan Roberts as Biff Budkins, a country hick; Roberta Dawson as Hester Hart, his scorn-
ful sweetheart; Jean Dunn as Mrs. Jennie Dawson, the town busybody; Helen Merrill as Marcella
Dawson, her daughter; Merle Long as Colby Magnet, a movie star; Bob Spence as Ripley Harlow,
Claire’s uncle; and Mabel Forster as Sabine Clayton, Lotus’ aunt.

A sparkling romance sprinkled with comedy and catchy tunes was “The Rose of the Danube.”
an operetta in two acts presented by the Albany High School Glee Club. January 28, in the high school
The setting of “The Rose of the Danube” was in the little kingdom of Eurolania, lying some-
where in Europe, on the banks of the blue Danube. At the time the story opened, an annual rose
festival was being held throughout the land: and among the many visitors were Darrell Davis, a news
photographer, and Percival McPipp, a moving picture director from Hollywood, accompanied by his
family. McPipp offered King Montmerency a million dollars for the use of the kingdom to produce a
moving picture. A plot tostart a revolution was foiled—the villain was given his just rewards, and pre-
paration progressed merrily for a joyful combination of riches and romance in Eurolania.
Students taking leading roles in the operetta were Darrell Davis, Robert Torrance: Galooski,
Ladd Howard; Belledonna, Lurline Fulk; King Montmerency, Russell Gott: Queen Florida, Marie
Gourley: Rose, Jessie Campbell; Daisy, Patsy Clifford: Prince Karl, Bob Robertson: Count Sergius von
Popova. Eugene Burriss: Demetrius Doodledorf, Lyman Olliver: Trombonius Tootledorf, Bill Hobbs;
Percival McPipp, Marvin Lovett: Mrs. McPipp, Florence Horning: Pamela McPipp, Rosalie Johnson.
A sixty-voice chorus added zest to the snappy dialogue directed by Mrs. Volena Johnson and
Mrs. Childs. Music was furnished by the high school orchestra under the baton of Mr. Loren Luper.
Dances were directed by Miss Osborne.
The high school P.T.A. has had another successful year. The organization presents the
opportunity for the parent to keep in contact with the new developments of education. At the first
meeting last fall there was a “Parents-go-to-school” so that the parents could get a closer contact.
Through lectures and discussions presented by educators the parents more easily appreciate the work
of the school. This winter, the P.T.A. had speakers from University of Oregon and Oregon State
College. It has tried to guard the reputation of A.H.S. and make it one of the best in the state. The
members also tried to create a friendly feeling so that the students may always feel free to approach
for moral and financial support, because the primary aim of the P.T.A. is service to the school
and the community.

This year’s carnival was one of the best ever held in all the twenty-six years of carnival his-
tory. Beginning at 7:30 in the evening of April 29 in the Albany High School auditorium and con-
tinuing through the evening until the last prize was awarded in the gymnasium, the townspeople
and students enjoyed a gala evening of spectacular fun!
The outstanding show was presented under the direction of Mrs. Loren Luper, who was
genei-al supervisor of the main show in the auditorium. Mrs. Mabel Penland again had charge of the
general arrangements for the entire carnival with the assistance of Merle Long, student manager.
Mr. Henry Otto was in charge of the concessions in the gymnasium, while Mr. Phillip Lehman di-
rected the parade at noon.
The annual parade began at 11 o’clock Friday morning at the high school. Every student
was in costume, and many prizes were given for outstanding costumes. The clubs of the school en-
tered floats in competition for many prizes. In addition to the Albany High School band and the
Legion Junior Drum Corps there were many entries representing the organizations and activities of
the high school.
The parade started from the high school, marched east to Main Street, then to First, along
First to Ferry and back Second to Lyon, on Lyon to Third and back to the high school, where the
students were dismissed for lunch.
Following the parade was an afternoon of sports on Central Field. There were a May pole
dance and a parade consisting of the high school band, the high school chorus, the junior high
choruses, the senior and junior high boy athletes, senior and junior high May pole dances, and lastly,
the senior and junior high girl athletes. After group singing the field was cleared for the track
meet that Albany had scheduled with Corvallis.
At 7:30 o’clock the curtains rose to the strain of music of the A. H.S. orchestra, under the
direction of Mr. Luper, on one of the best shows ever seen in Albany.
“Broadway to Dixie’’ began with the entrance of Queen Virginia I and her court of prin-
cesses: Geraldine Tycer, Helen Merrill, Alice Merrill, Helen Burch, Helen Marks, Peggy Jefferys,
Marjorie A. Miller, Gayle Hamm, Marie Gourley, Betty Erb, and their escorts.
As entertainment was being given in honor of Queen Virginia, Sunny, a beautiful young girl,
was drawn to the attention of the queen, who promised to grant her one wish. Sunny, played by
Esther Conner, asked for a trip “From Broadway to Dixie,” a request the lovely queen granted.
Sunny met Jerry, Ronald Daggett, who went with her to see the country: and through two
more acts of music, song, dance, and laughter, they went racing “From Broadway to Dixie.”
There was no class competition as far as the main show was concerned, but the class whose
ticket sale was the largest had its name inscribed on the big silver loving cup.
Immediately following the main show the crowd went to the gymnasium, where concessions
reigned in full swing with many clubs running stunts. This year twelve prizes in addition to the
grand prize, a radio, were given away at the drawing,
The new bleachers, installed on one side of the gym, provided room for weary frolickers to
wait for the grand drawing.
The regular Fall Honor Society Initiation was held on November 18. In an impressive cere-
mony fourteen seniors were admitted to the society.
Miss Pearl Young entertained the senior high school on November 22 with the mysterious
Theramin. The musical tones are produced by electric vibrations controlled by the hands waved in

music and then moving on.
Charles Walker, president of the Northwest School of Commerce, of Portland, Oregon, held

and make something of themselves. Mr. Walker was with us on March 2.
The Junior play, “Don’t Ever Grow Up,” after a very successful production was presented

Albany High had one of the most successful seasons that track enthusiasts of the school ever
experienced. Nine veterans answered the initial call for track and field men. The Bulldogs barked
their way through to second place in the district meet. We placed seven men in the state meet, and
we won three out of four scheduled meets. Albany placed second in the state half-mile relay, but
was eliminated on a technicality. The juniors shoved their way through the inaugural opening of
the inter-mural track meet, which is expected to be an annual affair. This meet was made possible
by the help and encouragement of Mr. Henderson, who assisted in track work.
Those earning their letters were Frank Merrill, Web Reynolds, Rex Putnam, Emory Stillwell,
Royal Henshaw, Rlair Warner, Bob Robertson. Eldon Bragg, Clarence Wicks. Merle Long, Tom Bibb,

This was the second year for compulsory physical education. During the first six weeks period,
“Health” was required twice weekly. At the end of this period physical development was taken up.
Tuesdays and Thursdays were the boys’ gym days.
During the winter, the indoor activities—volley ball, basketball, and squad drills were car-
ried out. Boxing, wrestling, archery, and field activities were enjoyed during spring months.
The classes were divided into squads: inter-squad competition was held in the gym activities.
The sixth period was designated as a recreation class for those not in other activities.
Compulsory physical education has been proved worth the time allotted for it, and it is
regarded as one of the best additions to the present curriculum.
Golf has always taken a back seat in the line-up of sport events, but in 1937 A.H.S. golfers
really showed us some “Green-grass-club-handlers. ” The boys who made their letter in golf were
Bob Lance, Glen Kenagy, and Leonard Churchill.

The Bulldog Boosters, an organization composed of business and professional men, alumni,
and former athletes of Albany High School, have been instrumental during the past few years in sup-
porting and furthering the school’s athletic program.
A turf football field, newly installed lights, a new grandstand, additional bleachers, and a
scoreboard, all were added to the athletic plant through the efforts of the Boosters.
A capacity crowd enjoyed the dedication of the new turf field in 1937. with a program by
the Boosters. Caravans to visiting towns, assistance in campaigning for the acquisition of a baseball
diamond, and many other activities marked the work of the Bulldog Boosters.
Robert L. Marks, Albany attorney, is president of the Boosters. Other officers are Howard
Rich, vice president: T. C. Bradley, secretary-treasurer; and Karl R. Horton, W. A. Vollstedt,
C. 0. Budlong, Austin Hall, and Carl Ellingsen, directors.
By leading scores of fans in adding zest to the struggles for victory on the gridiron, the court,
and the field, the three 37-38 yell leaders performed their duties with a vigor that brought verbal
support from every spectator.
The squad was composed of Eleanor Martinson, Lloyd McKnight, and Henrietta Stratton. This
was Eleanor’s and Lloyd’s first year as yell leaders, and it was Henrietta’s second. All are juniors.
YELL LEADERS: Martinson, McKnight, Stratton.
ORDER OF ‘‘A”
The Order of A is one of the oldest organizations in A. H. S. To be eligible for membership
one must officially earn a letter “A” in one of the following major sports: football, basketball, base-
ball, and track.
In the fall of 1937 officers were elected. LeRoy “Pappy” Schrock was elected president:
Leland Dragoo, vice president; and Mirvin Stenberg, secretary-treasurer.
The boys who wear A’s are recognized by the students as the police of such occasions as
“loud sock day” and the annual carnival.

The Rally Committee, under the supervision of Mr. Hudson, is one of the most active organi-
zations in Albany High School. It has charge of all rallies, pep meetings, and pep crowds at games.
With the help of the P.T.A. a Rally Dance was staged once a month this year.
Candy, gum. ice cream, and hot coffee were sold by the members at football games.
The committee consists of three yell leaders and five other active members.
Officers of 1937-38 were Lloyd McKnight, president: Geraldine Tvcer, secretary-treasurer;
other members were Henrietta Stratton. Eleanore Martinson, Alice Merrill, Edith Gilchrist, Fdith
Bailey, and Herbert Byerley.

(75)During: the school year of 1937-38 all girls were required to take physical education. Those
pupils who were physically unable to take the regular gym work were required to rest in the bunks
which were built for that purpose above the gym corridor. Another group who were not capable of
unrestricted activity took part in a limited program of activity: ping pong, jacks, teniquoits, darts,
Each girl took a motor educability test which showed how she ranked in physical ability.
Each period class was divided into a number of squads according to their motor ability score. Each
leader was assigned to a squad to actas captain, check attendance, give tests, and help the instructor
in general. The leaders were under Miss Osborne’s supervision.
The squad leaders met every Friday noon with Miss Osborne. She explained all new mater-
ial on sports and taught new methods of play.
Miss Osborne selected from each class an all-star team in volley-ball, basketball, and baseball.
These teams had tournaments which were held sixth periods. An honorary all-star team was select-
ed from these teams.
An advanced tumbling class was conducted after school for those girls who are particularly
interested in tumbling. There were a few requirements for entrance into the class: to hold a handstand
for ten seconds; to do forward and backward rolls; to mark time with hands in handstand five times.
Girls’ gym classes were held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the year after
the first six weeks of Health. During the first semester on Friday, the sixth period was set aside as
“co-ed day.” The boys and the girls played together in the gym.
Good sportsmanship and capable leaders added a great deal to the enjoyment of the activities.SEPTEMBER

This year our A.H.S. Whirlwind Annual was printed in our own printshop. A new press was
installed in April, and with the help of Mr. Harry S. Hill of Portland, from whom the press was pur-
chased, the first form was run off on Thursday, April 28. Everyone in the printshop, even Mr.
C. M. Grigsby, our printer-adviser, was inexperienced in the mechanics of the large cylinder press:
but after we were started, everything ran smoothly—well, fairly smoothly, considering the inexpert-
ness of the printers. There was so much to be done: copy written and checked: type set; forms made;
proofs taken, read, and corrected; and the final printing of each form of four pages. It was thrilling
to see the pages roll off the press—one by one—slowly making up our yearbook.
Many new ideas were incorporated in this yearbook: the bleeding of the cuts—that is, the doing
away with the margins around the cuts: the lithographed division pages; the new style of cover—all
are new to the Whirlwind Annual. With these innovat ons we have hoped to make this yearbook one of
the best ever published by Albany Hi. It is as different, modern, and streamlined as we have been
able to make it with our limited facilities and experience. We have tried, however, to make simplic-
ity the keynote of the annual.
There are always a few students who are willing to work on a heavy job like this, giving up
outside social activities—and there were a few such workers in our printshop. These students deserve
special recognition for their service: Muriel Forster and Wendell Gronso, sophomores in journalism,
w'ho probably set more type than any other two people in the printshop: Jean Dunn, who worked
nights and even on Saturdays, and Esther Conner, juniors; Clarence Burck, w'ho helped Mr. Grigsby
make up the pages: and Erros Penland. the only person who had the ability to feed the press accur-
ately, both seniors. To these workers the editor wishes to express her sincere gratitude. Thanks is
also due to Henrietta Stratton, who wrote the “In Memoriam:’’ to Mr. Bennett, our superintendent,
who w-rotethe article about the school board; and to Miss Chase, the manuscript adviser, who read the
Only those who have worked in the printshop could appreciate the amount of work that has
to be done to publish a yearbook of this type. Names w'ere checked and rechecked, and proof was
read many times. In spite of these precautions several errors have been made, but we hope that they
have been very few.
In view' of the inexperience of our mechanical force, we are very proud of our accomplish-
