Then He called unto a thousand people and summoned the bravest among them. They came from the end of the earth, each bearing a gift and a hopeg The glow of adventure was in their eyes, and in their hearts the glory of hope. And out of the bounty of earth and the labor of men, Out of the longing of hearts and the prayer of souls, Out of the memory of ages and hopes of the world, God fashioned a nation in love, blessed it with purpose sublime, and called it AMERICA. .Wabbi Jdver W v Table of Contents ADMINISTRATION Principal . .

Acres of these fine evergreens carpet the mountains of our Oregon. In this year, 1942, our government is in desperate need of lumber- lumber for the cantonments, battleships, airplanes, and official buildings. Were it not for the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the defense of America could not be so eiective. We have chosen this great industry as the theme for our Whirlwind Annual this year. As a feature, we are presenting Paul Bunyan, the mythical herculean lumberjack who performed all kinds of impossible feats to further his chosen vocation. The insert pages and written material of this book combine the legends of Paul Bunyan with the reality of forestry today. As the western sun sets on another year here at Albany High School, we recall the pleasant memories of friendships with teachers and fellow students. Trees I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree- A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast: A tree that looks at God all day And lifts her leafy arms to pray: A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hairg Upon whose bosom snow has laing Who intimately lives withfraing Poems are made by foolsllike me, But only God can make a tree. N rrp, .1 Je 4 i A sf ,,' - . V- 1 K Pehirzriinn DUTY has called two of our beloved teachers to their posts as officers in the United States Army. To Mr. Carlton Richter. Coach Tommy Swanson, and to the boys from Albany High School who are in the service we dedicate our 1942 Whirlwind Annual. Coach Swanson, better known as Tommy, was called to active service in J anuarv of this year, after two and one half years of teaching in Albany High School. Coach of several fine football teams, Mr. Swanson also produced wrestling and track teams worthy of notice. He was instructor of sophomore world history and was adviser of the senior class last year. Mr. Carlton Richter was bookkeeping teacher in Albany High School for two years. Last year he organized the Bookkeeping Club and was its adviser. He was faculty adviser of the Livewires during the time he taught here. Lieutenant Carlton Richter departed for Camp Roberts as soon as school closed last spring. We have missed these friendly overseers of our high school days, but we know they are doing their part in defending the country we love. We wish you the best of luck, Lieutenant Richter, Lieutenant Swanson, and our boys in the service. 11.1---li f P' 4 J emurram f15urhrm marker iflliarl Qlleahu OUR friends have departed to meet their reward. They leave with their associates many pleasant memories of the deeds that they accom plislied during their brief span of life on earth. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evilg for thou art with me." Taken in the strength of young manhood, Gordon Lee Parker who passed away December 10, 1941, leaves a vacant spot in the hearts of all who knew him. An active Future Farmer of America, Gordon was a sophomore in Albany High School, a member of the Fairmount Grange in Benton county, and a member of the Albany Methodist Church. The flight of another Aviator is finished, his battles are all fought, his victories all are won, and, as in other days, he lies down to rest awhile under the arching sky awaiting the bugle's call. Second Lieutenant Karl Leabo, graduate of Albany High School in 1938, was killed in a plane crash on Sunday, December 14, 1941, near Everett, Washington. Karl took his ten-week primary course at Santa Monaca, California, the twenty-week basic course at Moffett Field, and finally the advanced course before winning his wings and an assignment to the Portland Air Base. YET LOVE WILL DREAM Yet Love will dream, and Faith will trust, lSince he who knows our need is justp That somehow, somewhere, meet we must. Alas for him who never sees The stars shine through his cypress trees Who, hopeless lays his dead away, Nor looks to see the breaking day Across the mournful marble play! Who hath not learned in hours of faith, The truth to flesh and sense unknown That Life is ever Lord of Death, And Love can never close its own.

Hudson Principal of Albany High School History Repeats Itself The 1918 issue of the Whirlwind Annual was dedicated to the Albany High Schoolboys who entered the first World War. This year we are again dedicating the Annual to our former students who are now in the service. Again, as in that war, the treacherous foes of Democracy have attacked the peace and liberty loving people of the earth and, again, our boys are being called upon to do their part in this war which is much more than the first World War. Again we are preparing a service flag for the students and the former students to represent those who will be serving in the important defense industries and those who are active on the battlefields and in our navy. There can never be any question as to the bravery or fighting ability of our students and former students, for our young people are typical of all Americans, and the whole world is well aware of the ability of our people when they are fighting for liberty and justice. There is one important thing, however, in this present war that our young folks should remember. Our goverment leaders are urging all high school students throughout the country to take every advantage of their high school opportunities and to be sure to complete their high school work in order that they may be as fully prepared as possible for the technical training that will come with enlistment, which should come after graduation. My appeal to high school students then would be-Utilize every minute and hour while in school in real, conscientious elfort and work and ever bear in mind that even though your asks now seem difficult that you are still having it many times easier than the boys who are the trenches and on the firing line. 61 JZ .kudsan I r ' T Ai .- WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A H S Chase Kurtz Palmer Sanders Voyen Childs Lehman Penland Spence Welbes M X- ww-,Q-A,gg.,.,,,,, MR.

R. E. McCormack Superintendent's Message Our great nation is at war. Almost alllof the world is now engaged in this titanic struggle. With so much at stake, with issues so important, and with war activities so close to our lives and our daily living, it is amazing that so much that is totally unwarlike occupies our attention. , This high school annual is an example. Portraying the faces and activities that com- prise in part the program and spirit of one of the units of the American public school system, and devoted to a theme that emphasizes one of Amerir-a's great natural resources, it seems far removed from battles to the death for "a way of life." But America is an awaking giant of tremendous resources and strength difficult for the human mind to comprehend. Potentially it is ready to assume the task lying before it. The schools and youth will do their part. "Without abandoning essential services of the schools, appropriate war duties of the schools should be given absolute and immediate priority: in time, attention, personnel, and funds over any and all other activities," says the National Educational Policies Commission. We expect to do no less, fir. Zccormack School Board A tried and proved school board, the chosen representatives of this community, stand guard to assure the faithful performance of duties. 0. P.

Subscription Manager------ 2 The Winter of the Blue Snow In the North, sapphire-blue snowflakes began falling on one winter evening in the year now called the "Winter of the Blue Snow." Terrified by this phenomenon, countless herds of moose and bruins are said to have fled in fright. Among them was Niagara, the huge moose hound that was food hunter for Paul Bunyan. The student, Paul, had been living at Tonnere Bay in a secluded cave, where he carried on intensive research and study. At this time he had just begun to be restless because he had learned and had mastered everything there was to know. A few days passed 'before Paul realized that Niagara must have fled with the rest of the animals. Niagara rushed along with the fauna of the woods and soon passed them. He was going at such a terrific rate of speed that he crashed into the North Pole. With great force he was hurled backwards, and he fell between Canada and the United States. This fall is now commemorated as Niagara Falls. Maybe you have heard of it. oo Little Babe i Paul Bunyan was awakened one night by theterrific crash as of a thousand timbers breaking. 'Pulling on his enormous boots, he walked out of the cave in two strides. After he had arrived at the shore line, he saw a great sheet of icy water. In the midst of this seven-foot thick sheet of ice, which splintered before his eyes, he saw two ears. Fearlessly he grabbed the ears from a mile away and lifted from the water a shivering, new-born ox- calf. Surprised at the size and color of the huge, bright blue ox, Paul named it Babe, the Blue Ox. Then he carried the poor Babe into the cave, where the ox was soon revived with warm blankets, moss soup, and the heat of the fire. N T ' '--11. 11 A.H.S.

Bill Mitchell Kenny Cozad Miss Stewart Betty Fisher Shirley Bird Junior Class History From the great green forests of Central and Madison Woods in the year 1940 came truckload after truckload of Fresh timber to the Albany High School sawmill. To start with, this material presented several knotty problems. After the logs were taken through the Mill of Experience by Chief Engineers Rodney Russell of Madison and Wilbur Senders of Central, these problems were gradually smoothed away. That bunch was still pretty rough in '41, so after a little whacking off here and trimming up there, it was decided very definitely that some special lumber had been discovered. Under the expert supervision of Manager Stanford, Chief Sawyer Rodney Russell, Assistant Sawyer Doris Kelly, Bookkeeper Vivian Cosler, and Paymaster Shirley Bird, they passed inspection as Grade 11B material. Wilbur Senders was picked as a good specimen to represent the others. At last, after they had endured all kinds of torture, some emerged as smooth little numbers approximately 1x5's, while other were sturdy 2x6's. With good advice from Manager Stewart and the leadership of Chief Foreman Bill Mitchell, Assistant Foreman Kenny Cozad, Bookkeeper Betty Fisher and Paymaster Shirley Bird, they were one day proclaimed to have gone through the mill successfully. Harrison Weatherford was picked to represent them on the Student Council. Some logs used successfully in sports are the following: football--Archie Hayes, Lyle MacHugh, George Ambrosek, Bud Long, Bob Kelty, Gale Sorenson, Don Hector, Delmar Boylan, Darrel Byersg basketball-Bud Long, Albert Fortier, Bob Kelty: wrestling-Lyle MacHugh, Larry Larsen, Calvin Tigner, Jack Pyburn, Joe Copeland, George Ambrosek, Lawrence Barnes: baseball- Bud Fortier, Archie Hayes, and Bud Long. The logs are scattered all over and are connected with important .4 ctivities such as debate, the a capella chorus, the paper staff, and many ther organizations. 1 x' -4' 4 x l '.

A student's axe is his pencil, and with it he' strives to conquer the year's work just as the woodsman strives to conquer the forest giant. The woodsman's reward is the toppling of the tree. The student's reward is promotion. It is with this idea in mind that we present our class history. Way back in 1931, the sophomore class had its meager beginning in two rival camps, the Central, and the Madison. At that time the ambitious, but inexperienced, groups of student started on theirfirst truck of learning and feeble as were their attempts, they were soon promoted. Through the years, they conquered many branches of learning and piled them neatly in a corner for future use. All was not work, however, for there were pleasant interludes of chalk and eraser throwing and other pranks that helped them while away the time. The merging of the two camps was acomplished with a minimum of confusion, the officers being chosen from the combined ranks of Central and Madison. Zed Merrill was elected presidentg Loren Flomer, vice-president, Mabel Pontius, secretary: Dorothy Roth, treasurer: Cecil Jenkins, camp representative: and Miss Stanford, camp adviser. After the election, the camp settled down to business and began on this, their most important tree of learning thus far. 7 44 WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A,H.S First Row: Ahart, Albers, K. Allen, R.

The officers were Alvin Kreger, presidentg Lyle McHugh, vice-presidentg Jim Linn, secretary: Don Groves, treasurer: Gordon Cooley, reporter: John Welbes, adviserg Rex Bishop and Stanley Gourley,executive members. About fifty students were enrolled in the agricultural department. During the summer the boys entered many contests at the State Fair and brought home about S250 prize money. They entered a stock judging team, consisting of Rex Bishop, Alvin Kreger, Earl Kennel, and Don Groves, alternate, at the Pacific International Livestock Exposition in Portland and rated very high. For the first time in the history of the Albany F.F.A. Chapter, the members had a representative at the national convention which was held at Kansas City, Missouri. Alvin Kreger was the lucky fellow to make the trip. The money for the trip was earned by the boys themselves, who pulled beets and carrots and picked beans. The Albany boys were hosts to the District Parliamentary Procedure Contest this year. They placed first in competition with eight other schools. They also placed first last year. Albany was one of the two chapters selected to represent Oregon in the national contest, in which F.F.A. chapters from all parts of the country competed for the title of "Most Outstanding Chapter." The boys purchased a four hundred pound brood sow, which was placed under the care of Joe Copeland. A crop co-op was started this year for the first time. Thirty-four acres of land were rented, and each boy had a certain amount of work to do. T fellows who were eligible for their Oregon Farmer's Degree were Earl Kennel Rex Bi p, Alvin Kreger, Don Groves, and Frank Lovejoy. ff' 7 ' 2718 WHI RLWIND ANNUAL A.H.S.

The twelve leaders meet every other Wednesday during the noon hour. They discuss the school problems and plan the program of the boys under their direction. Each boy in school is in one of the twelve groups. The groups are arranged so that the larger boys when participating in intramural sports make up the major league, and the smaller boys, the minor league. Championships are finally determined by play-offs between major and minor league winners. In addition to the intramural program of sports, the boys also plan assembly programs for the last Friday of each month. They provide half-time stunts for basketball games, and in general, they work for the welfare of the boys and the school.

The appropriate motto, although not original, is ' 'Keep 'Em Flying." Cheer Leaders This year the Albany High football and basketball teams rated so high in their respective departments that they certainly gave their opponents something to think about. Much of the credit for their achievements must go to the school support and especially to the group known as the "Cheer Leaders." Virginia Hall, Pat Gilchrist, Wilbur Senders, and Calvin Tigner were chosen for their pep, cooperation, and ability. Under the guidance of these four students, the rooting section gave some really noteworthy yells. In addition to the "old standby" yells, the leaders, with the cooperation of the Boosters' Club, added "Peaches and Cream," "Red Hot," and the "Welcome Yell." The leaders were also responsible for the fine spirit shown in the pep assemblies and pre-game rallies. We salute them for the splendid workin keeping up the morale and enthusiasm of Albany students and teams. 'F ' . . ' 4 ' ,I .. A- -1 1 X A.H.S.

Johnny Inkslinger Running out of fingers and toes on which to count and becoming confused with all the figures in his head, Paul set out to find a bookkeeper. Since figures hadn't been invented yet, he had had to do all the figuring in his head. He tried having notches cut into various trees but it kept his lumberjacks so busy that they couldn't get any work done. Paul decided to travel to see whether he could find some solution to his problem. Before long he came to a man covering a cliff with queer marks. When asked what he was doing, he said he was figuring just for fun of it-but he was sad because there was nothing left to figure. Johnny Inkslinger, for that was his name, went gladly with Paul and took over the figuring duties of the camp. He figured so fast that he had to use a hose attached to a barrel of ink which need ed refilling every few minutes. f P df it - A 1 L ki f ' ,aj-f' 64 WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A.H.S.

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 69 Q 1942 Carnival On May 1 Albany High School resembled an institution of learning just as flat- ca resembles a limousine. There were clowns, fishermen, sailors, soldiers, scarecrows and almost anything else imaginable. No, this isn't a fairy tale. May 1 was the day of the Carnival and Loud Sock Day, which have become traditional in Albany High. Any student who came to school in regular clothes was dealt with in a stern manner by the Order of A at the Kangaroo Court. After the parade, the floats entered by the home rooms were judged. The student with the most original costume was also chosen. In the evening the carnival itself was presented under the rule of Queen Phyllis I and her royal court, which consisted of three princesses from each class. Besides the queen,Phyllis Dickey, the princesses in the senior class were Marjorie Robe and Billie Fitzpatrick: in the junior class, Alma Scofield, ShirleyBird, and Nancy Banks 5 in the sophomore class, Darlene Rei'ey, Jerry McMahan, and Mabel Pontius. The escorts were Bob Jacobson. Denny Miller, Leo Schlegel, Ralph Hassman, Bud Fortier, Cliff Slaton, Bob Hermens, and Earl Todd, respectively. Harold Burrelle, student body president, acted as prime minister and crowned Queen Phyllis I. The play, a satire based upon the last World War and the beginning of the present war, was interwoven with songs, dances, and humor, There were six acts in all,and each class presented two of them. The sophomores gave the first and the secondgthe juniors, the third and the fourthg and the seniors, the fifth and the sixth. The gen eral outline of the play was written by Miss Calavan, but each class added to it according to whatever talent was available. As usual there was competition between classes. The classes were judged on the quality and the originality of their performance, on ticket sales for the carnival, and the percentage of class voting for the princesses. After the performance most of the audience went to the gymnasium, where they participated in refreshments and games of both skill and chance. The proceeds from the play and the concessions helped pay the expenses of the Annual. This made it possible for almost every student to purchase a book. -aiqe4fQ'397Wxar-4- Big Swede Ole and Brimstone Bill Since Paul had quite a struggle just taking care of Babe, he sent for Big Swede Ole, the blacksmith. The lumberjacks say that every time Ole wanted to shoe Babe, he would have to open a new iron mine in Colorado. When he would carry a couple of the horseshoes for a mile or so, he would sink knee deep in solid rock at every step because the shoes were sobig and heavy. Because Babe often ran off to forage for food, Paul decided to send for Brimstone Bill, the Bullwhacker, to take care of the ox. Besides knowing all the words that make oxen go, Bill found some cheap, satisfying rations for the Big Blue Ox. f , F r ' . , 4' X.

One time he ran away and snorted around through millions of acres of valuable timberland, trampling and crushing everything under his huge hoofs. Another time Babe ran from the trail that Paul was making through the North woods. He scampered around in the Lake Country and left huge prints where he had been. Later these filled with water to form the Thousand Lakes of Michigan. Paul dug a water hole for Babe, and this is now known as Lake Superior. Babe's bellow became the first fog horn and could be heard as far aa the Mediterranean Sea. One time when he was excited, he bellowed so terribly loud that the vibration killed all the fish in the Dead Sea. 'K . 1 .

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL va Football Under the guidance of Coach Tom Swanson, the Albany High School Bulldogs enjoyed one of their most successful seasons since the championship team of 1916. With one defect to mar their record, the Blue and Gold team sailed through its season with a success unequaled in any other record in previous years. They placed for high state honors. l Playing in the toughest league in the state, Albany came out on top, tying with Corvallis and Salam for N o-Name league honors. In their post season game,the Bulldogs were defeated by Eastern Oregon Champions, Milton-Freewater. Coach Swanson built his squad, largely around the following lettermen, who returned to the Bulldog squad after the first call was given: Jacobson, Long, Wardehoff, Schlegel, Looney, I-lassman, MacHugh, Hermens, Sorenson, Hayes, Stiles, and Miller.

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 75 Sideline Chatter The Bulldogs were well represented on the No-Name League all-star team with three men, Bob Hermena, John Schlegel, Thad Looney winning berths on the mythical squad. On Albany's all-star opponents' team, Milton-Freewater placed five men: Salem and Eugene each placed two: and Bend and Oregon City each placed one. Albany's Bulldogs proved to be one of the most outstanding offensive teams in the No- Name-League. When completetotals were compiled, it was found that they had 178 points to their opponents, 46. As well as being strong on their offensive, Albany proved to be one of the best defensive teams when the players stopped the on-rushing Eugene Axmen five times within 3 yard marks in the last half. At the close of the season, the following boys received trophies for their outstanding work: Thad Looney, most valuable playerg Bob Hermens, best defensive line playerg Ray Wordehoff, best backfield player, Bob Jacobson, best sportsmanship, and Junior Schlegel, most outstanding player. 1 1941 Track Under the tutorship of Coach Tommy Swanson. the Albany men had one of the most outstanding seasons since the coach started training them. The Albany squad participated in seven meets, including the state meet. In the Albany, Eugene, Corvallis meets Albany , placed second. In the meet with Salem, Albany placed second and won first in the Albany-Corvallis meet. The Albany squad was host to the Greater Willamette Valley Meet in which they placed fourth. The squad won third place in the No-Name meet and second in the district meet. Those on the 1941 team earning their letters were Ralph Hassman, Bob Luther. George Tycer, Junior Schlegel, Dick Miller, Norman Peterson, Don Garrison, Bob Kelty, Byron Palmer, Norman Wordehoff, and Keith Henshaw. "Come and Get It" Paul Bunyan had quite a system for feeding his lumberjacks well. You will probably doubt my word, but he had a crew of eleven teamsters, with teams and scrapers, who were busy all the time-just clearing away the coffee grounds and egg shells from around the kitchen door. A larger gang was kept working steadily just hauling away the prune seeds that accumulated after each meal. When these were dampened, they were slippery enough to make the logs go over the roads smoothly, and even then there was no river available. In addition to these teams, there were men who did nothing but drive the salt and pepper wagons, going down the full length of one of the big dinner tables in the dining hall the first half of the week, filling the salt and pepper shakers and returning the last half of the week. Sourdough Sam was the chief baker and flapjack expert, but Hot Biscuit Slim's talents all lay in general cookery. Since Paul had the interest of his men at heart, he tried to think of better and quicker ways of getting the food to the men at the tables while it was still warm. At first he tried using ponies with roller skates, but that didn't work so Well because the food was often spilled. Then Ol' Paul installed railroad tracks between rows of tables with specially built freight cars for carrying food. ' A stranger who visited Paul's camp one day remarked that the firewood being hauled into the kitchen was certainly being put in a queer place-through a trapdoor into a place in the kitchen with steam arising from it. "Logs! Why, stranger, them ain't logsf Them's N usages for the men's breakfast." Y 7 F x, , ,T x aL -, , X 76 WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A.H.S. Basketball 1942 1 .

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 77 Basketball Finishing their 1941-1942 season ina tyle which could easily be compared with the actions of Paul Bunyan, the Albany maple court forces made the best record ever obtained by a Bulldog squad. Under the tutorship of Dwight Adams, the Bulldogs got off to a rather slow start, losing most of their games. As the season progressed, they assumed the spirit of fierce, fighting bulldogs and won sixteen games out of twenty-five. The Albany Blue and Gold, for the first time in its history, finished with a top district rating by tying with Corvallis for first honors. The Spartans won the right to attend the state tournament when they downed the Bulldogs in a play-ol? game. The Albany squad also tied with Corvallis for third place honors in the No-Name League. This year the squad was built around seven seniors and four juniors. They were Bobby Jacobson, Denny Miller, Don Garrison, Earl Kennel, Bob Thompson, Bob Hermens, Bud Fortier, Bud Long, Bob Kelty, and "Corky" Volz.

Boys' Athletics The physical education and athletic program for boys includes a large variety of activities. The athletic program consists of football, basketball, baseball, track, wrestling, and golf. In addition to the above, the intramural program includes volleyball, touch football, boxing, badminton, ping pong, softball, horseshoes, and other minor sports. That phase of the program covering the required physical activities classes includes many additional activities such as tumbling, social dancing, calisthenics, and physical ability tests. A It is the endeavor of the department to provide an equal opportunity for all boys to compete in some sport in either the inter-scholastic or the intramural program. The fact that a large majority of the boys do participate is due in a large measure to the splendid unselfiah services of the many athletic managers, intramural managers, game officials, and intramural club leaders. Without the help of these boys, it would have been utterly i -possible to carry on the program to its full extent as it has been in the past year. cased' Duuyhf Jfdams Y ' fr 7' T -.1 L80 WHIRIJWIND ANNUAL A.H.S 1 1 'AMERICA SPQRTS a HAS 6' BUILD n ' .SPORTS g EN . f f"1E :SA'::: .'i '. 15.71. ,.

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A 81 Intramural Review A wider field of activities and a smoother program oi administration led to the most successful year of the intramural program in Albany High School. Under the direction of Dwight Adams and leadership of Howard Weddle, the intramural program has carried out its purpose to give every boy a chance to participate in at least one sport. This year, the competition centered around the organization known as the Albany High School Associated Bulldogs, which consisted of twelve organized clubs, whose members included every boy in high school. The responsibility for the administration program was held by the intramural board, which was composed of leaders for each club, Mr. Adams and Mr. Otto. The group carries out its sport activities in the gym during noon hours and also presents an all-boys' assembly each month. The larger boys formed the major league and the smaller ones, the minor league. The following activities were included in this year 's intramural program: basketball, volleyball, touch football, golf, boxing, wrestling, badminton, ping pong, softball, horseshoes, cross country, track, and swimming. Wrestling The "grunt and groan" masters of Albany High produced one of the strongest squads in the history of Albany High. First, under the tutelage of Tommy Swanson and then under the training of Reverend MacDonald, the Albany grapplers won two matches from Salem, one from Dallas, one from Corvallis, and tied with both Corvallis and Tillamook. In the district championship tournament, which was held in Albany, the Bulldogs won honors, placing five men in the state tournament. Three of these men reached the finals. The boys who participated in wrestling were Dean Chandler, John Kelly, Lyle MacHugh, Louis Hassman, Ralph Hassman, Larry Larsen, Mike Becker, Thad Looney, Calvin Tigner, and Darrell McClain.

These girls ushered at all home basketball games and rendered many acts of service to the school throughout the year. The many hikes, swimming parties, and night meetings were well attended and provided novel recreation for the girls. The girls deserve credit for the splendid way in which they presented their program in the auditorium on April 10, 1942. The purpose of the event was to demonstrate to the audience the old and new versions of various sports and dances. The girls held their annual banquet in the gym on May 15. As usual, the main feature of the evening was awarding of sweaters, letters, and the honor awards. The G.A.A. annual outing was held at the coast on May 2 and 3. Approximately one hundred girls made the trip. As an additional activity the girls maintained a scrapbook which contained some exceptional art work. N :fr - I A 'A-14. gm bus. "" WHIRLWIND ANNUAL ss 'O -1' - W Through the Years Well, lad, many's the yarn that's been spun around this here fire. And many young timbers, same as you, have started and ended their careers right here in old Camp A.H.S. Others have gone out and made names for themselves. Why, I can remember way back in nineteen hundred thirty when Wesley Nesbitt was foreman o' this camp. Hear tell he's' captain on a ship now+well, anyhow he's in the navy, machinist's mate, third class. And you needn't think I'm lyin'. Why, I recollect-but that's getting away from my story. Then when Wes left, a new foreman came into the camp. His handle was Ivan Zimmerman. 'Member him? Now he's away over there in Lebanon managing a Safeway store. He was here wa.y back in '31 . Now dandies aren't usually found in lumber camps like old A. H. S., but the fellows have to have clothes. Our next foreman, in 1932, followed that line. You know him, lad. He's Bob Ferguson of Ferguson's Men's Store, right here in town. It doesn't seem too long back when Wayne Safley was chief here-bouts. That was in thirty-three. He followed the trade right up, and now he's in the Plywood plant. Then one fine September day in thirty-four, Jim Davis came to camp. He felled all the trees in his way and became head man. Now he's coaching football down there in Roseburg. Now's the time when we look up to our brothers in khaki. Even one of our own foremen is now at Fort Lewis with the impressive title of second lieutenant. Bud Robertson is his name, and he was here in thirty-five. Not many of our able leaders have wandered too far, but Victor Groening of thirty-six is married and is teaching in Hawaii. Those hula skirts remind me of the time when a traveling music show hit camp. What? Oh, yes, to get back to my story-When Bill Morgan hit Camp A.H.S., the cotton sales were scheduled to rise 200 per cent. He was chief in thirty-seven and then went to Oregon State College, where he was yell king in 1940, 41. He majored in forestry. Then in thirty-eight came our lawyer, Bob Spence. He's down at the University Of Oregon studying law. What's that, you say? I should study law? Pshaw, don't be silly, lad. I'd shake like a topped tree if I had to get up afore a jury Our young sprouts are like trees: some short, some tall, and some sorta green. But we've had some mighty fine ones. Why, Al Oberson and Royal Cox of 1939 and 1940 have both turned to banking. They work in the Albany branch of the First National Bank. Now, lad, you know our past chiefs. What? Why, bless Bess, 1 forgot our own Bill Mikkelson of forty-one! He's over at Oregon State College, and doing fine, I hear. The sun's sinking. What a pretty sunset, eh lad? There's nothing I like better than a beautiful sunset over that old Coast Range. Good night, lad. Y 5 ,X T L T 2' A ss wmanivmn nfifim. urs.

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 89 From Us To You DEAR GRIGGS, In a little over three months we will be resuming our work on the Whirlwind, but not as usual. Griggs will not be with us-the printshop without Griggs-it won't seem right. No to be able to ask him if he wants it 30 or 25 picas wide or if the head should be set in 18 point italic or 14 point cheltenham medium, will seem strange and different. Someone else, a new adviser will answer those questions and a thousand others. Of course we will try to make him welcome, but if we could only have Griggs again, we would be completely happy. Sixteen years of faithful service, sixteen years of sacrifice for the school, sixteen years of hardships and kindly patience to establish our printshop-but now he's leaving us. The printshop without Griggs-no one can ever fill his place. We have not only memories of Griggs's accomplishments, but in actuality-the very printshop. Only through Mr. Grigsby's real sacrifice during all times, could we have had it. Yet, is this only too true fact recognized by others? Never again shall we have an adviser like you Griggs, never again will we put in as happy years as we have had with our Griggs. We thank you, too, for your admirable patience to us and former printshoppers. O Griggs, we will miss you so much-and an adviser and friend like you?inever again.

Malarkey, his sons Herbert and Huntington, Thomas A. Autzen. and other associates came to an agreement with a local committee and pledged themselves to build the modern plywood plant. It was to be built on the 200-acre site along the lakes just north of the city limits. The payroll from the Albany Plylock Division was expected to approach half a million dollars. The estimated rate of production was 225,000 square feet of three-eighths inch plywood panels daily, or 6,000,000 square feet of plywood every month. The plant went into operation in June, 1941, with 375 men and- women employed. The plant. occupies 100,000 square feet of land. There are many uses for plywood. One form of plywood, called plyoform, is used in making forms for laying concrete. Modern kitchens can be built more easily and cheaply with plywood, Plywood walls with wallpaper are very attractive, for there are no unsightly cracks in the paper. Plywood is weatherproof, kickproof, and crackproof and very pliable: it is used as walls in stores because of these qualities. Farmers have found many uses tor plywood. Dairymen line their homes with it. Clean milkhouses are being built from it. Silos are rehabilitated with it because it bends easily. Portable brooder houses for chickens are being built from the light, pliable material. The plywood industry is provingits worth to the people of Albany and the surrounding territories as they are discovering its values and taking advantage of them. A.H.S.

WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 93 The Last Word In future years as you look through the 1942 Whirlwind Annual, we sincerely hope that the book will recall many pleasant memories of the years that you spent in Albany High School. The staff has endeavored to give you a clear picture of your school days by means of photographs and histories of classes and other phases of school life. Among the Annual staff were many editors who worked zealously to make this the best Annual yet printed in our high school. Phyllis McCormack sketched pictures and carved them on linoleum blocks for the inserts and the page designs. Without Paul Stellmacher's work it would have been impossible to have so many fine candid camera and group pictures. Eileen Brenneman, our manuscript editor: Helen Ellison and Marylee Jenks, our typists: Pat Gilchrist and Bill Morgan, our subscription and business managers, respectivelyg and Pat Murphy, mechanical editor, are unsung heroes and heroines behind the scenes. To them, as well as to the other members of the staff whose names are mentioned on the inserts. we wish to express our sincere appreciation. Miss Chase, Mr. Hudson, and "Grigs" have been invaluable as advisers. Eva Mudgett and the typesetters, Doris Mornhinweg, Dave Hamouris, LeRoy Seavy, Beverly Gronso, Virginia Hall, June Babcock, Dorothy Becker, Maryan Howard, and Charles Wicks have been important in the mechanics of this work. To all these people we gratefully say, "Thanks" There is a great deal of detail work to be done on our Annual, as you know, especially when it is printed in the school print shop. The paper must be carefully checked and rechecked. Covers must be ordered. Art work must be completed, and a decision must be made in choosing insert paper, inks, and patterns, After the copy has been set in type, proofs must be taken and corrected. When we are finally ready to print the pages, someone must place paper between each copy as it comes from the press. After a few hours, someone must go through this stack and de-slipsheet-that is, take these papers out. After the pages are cut to the proper size and gathered into books, they are sent to the binders. You students see the results of the year's strenuous work when the Whirlwind Annual comes out. The greatest test comes then-when you readers decide whether you like it. We do hope you will! A lot of effort and time is devoted to the loud-sock carnival, which is held every year for the purpose of paying part of the expense of printing the Annual. We are, indeed, grateful to the students and the teachers who shoulder this additional burden. We also wi h to thank the Timber Engineering Company of Washington, D.C., for its cooperation in sending us the forest picture which you will find in the front of the Annual. Our engravers gave us a Paul Bunyan book from which we gleaned several ideas. We do hope that you will enjoy, and will continue to enjoy, our Whirlwind Annual of 1942 r If X if i WYND'S STUDIO We Thank You First and Lyon FRAGER'S "Quality for less" First and Lyon M.

By Doris Jean Huff PAGE NINETEEN , f. f.r1-www TEACHERS' COMMENTS Here are my best wishes to you all as you leave the school door and commence the larger life which lies just beyond the threshold. May your hopes and dreams be realized in the fullest degree, and in the years to come may your names reflect honor and credit upon the institu- tion which has been your home during the formative period of your lives. -Mr. Cloin. Now, you and I certainly like to hear ourselves praised, and I hope we hear it often. It is necessary. Were we not worthy of some praise we would soon be on some back shelf among the world's obsolete human merchandise. However, does praise ever improve you? Criticism, on the other hand, is valuable. It is by criticism that you know your mistakes, errors, and weaknesses. By know' ing them you can safeguard the future by removing the cause. When I am reminded of the great good that this class can and will probably do for the world, I am glad that I am a teacher. I trust that I have made some little unforf getable impressions on your lives. -Miss Smith. A cross section of American youth at this age. In' dustrious and not so industrious. Thoughtful and not so thoughtful. Respectful and not so respectful. Ambitious and not so ambitious. Reliable and not so reliable. Co' operative and not so cofoperative. A typical senior class. Graduating at this time that is far from typical. What will you do that will be worthwhile to your country and to you? -Mr. Kell. Probably few high school graduating classes have gone into a world faced with as many grave problems as those now confronting us. At the same time few classes have had as many opportunities to be of real service to the people who have made our education thus far possible. What you do with these opportunities will be the real test as to whether the expense of your education was a wise investment. -Mr. Rumble. Frequently the finest characters are developed under adverse conditions. This is a thought to remember in these trying times. I extend my congratulations to members of the senior class and their parents, and my best wishes to each member for future success. -Mr. Kilpatrick. Our most valued possessions are those which can be shared without lessening. The world is in great need of men and women who are willing to give the best that they have. My challenge to you, class of '42, is: "Beat your Best." -Miss Falls. What few seniors I have had at O. C. H. S. have been pleasant people to know. I wish them the best of luck when they graduate and go out to life's work. -Mr. Mason. A class which I believe will fulfill its present promise of fine accomplishments and sturdy character. . , -Miss Robb. Work and your profits 'will be great. -Mr. Davis. While I have had the Seniors only a short time I have enjoyed my work with them and regret their leaving, but wish them success as they go out to take up their new work what ever it may be. , -Miss McCrary. My wish for each of you is the utmost success in your life's work. May you be happy in the work that you choose, and put forth every effort to achieve success. Re' member: "A quitter never wins and a winner never quits." -Miss McIlree. Sixteen percent of the orchestra are from the Senior Class. With your departure it will leave us a challenge to the members to uphold its former reputation of per' formances. The world at present is in need of much more music, for nothing is so universal. May your training aid your country in a "united front." -Miss Talley. ' I am sorry that I did not have the privilege of com- ing into contact with all members of your class in the school room as a teacher. However it was my good fortune to have several of you in my classes and I shall ever re- member these experiences as being most pleasant. I know that many of your group have intellectual power and still more of you have developed proper attitudes and ideals. It is my sincere desire that, as you go forth as graduates of Oakland City High School you take with you a dynamic faith in American institutions and a deep conviction of the importance of the individual in our society. The preset' vation of democracy depends upon the fervor of our faith in it. -Mr. Wood. Most members of the class of'42 whom I have had in my classes have been earnest and willing workers and have attacked any tasks given them with enthusiasm and def termination. They have been courteous, loyal, and well behaved. May you face the tasks which society will place upon you in the future with the same courage and de- termination. -Mr. Robinson. The founders of this nation decreed that the memories of the past, the opportunities of the present and the promise of the future should constitute the greatest heri- tage of the American Youth. America has, in a great measure, failed to keep this charge. Let us, as Seniors, dedicate ourselves to the task of making America American again. ' -Mr. Main.

CLASS PROPHECY john Robert Morris, the greatest and most popular comedian of wit and humor in the world, had, due to his popularity with the people of the United States, been ap- pointed as ambassador to a little island off the China Coast. After his appointment as a good humor man, john thought he should try to see all his old classmates of '42, and since it was several weeks before his ship left the 'New York Harbor, he decided now was the time to collect all his former pals so they could send him off on his mission bon voyage with a celebration equal to the Mardi Gras. His first hop was to San Francisco by the CrossfCountry Clipper. Uponhis ar' rival he followed the rumor that the exotic actress, and "Miss America of l946," Pheobe Phallus, known to an intimate few as Phyllis Waller, was residing in San Fran. From Phyllis he learned that Mada Culver had made a sensation at her studio as the librarian. Mada had recently been appointed on the committee that chose the world's best-seller, because of her superior knowledge of books. When John visited the Newmarket Studio, he met Robert Walker who was rewriting the universal best-seller "The Ladies Wait" by the competent author, Paul Butcher, who had gained his information from his experience in the Navy. Also on the studio grounds was Bob Greek, termed as "Greek, the Shiek" in his younger days, still going strong. He confided that his job of laying pipefline was immensely enjoyable. Piping helium from Texas to California to be used in a new dirigiblefbuilding plant, owned by the philanthropist, Jack Woods, kept him from whizzing back to the Winslow girls ever now and then, but he didn't seem to mind, since he said the resources were dwindling there anyway. While visit' ing the set where Pheobe Phallus was starring in the current hit of the season, "Knit One, Purl Harder," John ran into Calvert Blacketer, the studio electrician. john found that Calvert was in partnership with Maynard Faries, that wizard of the chem lab back in'42, but Maynard spent so much time among his clocks that Calvert pracf tically upheld the business himself. Hearing that several of his class-members lived in Chicago, john decided to travel to Illinois by rail. One day, as he was sitting in the Pullman car, he heard someone speaking of his recent exploits into important coal mines and sandpits.. He knew inf stantly that this was Mrs. Ralph Tooley, formerly Wilma Elliott. Upon turning around to introduce himself, he noticed Martha Sumners, who was noted for her columns of advice to the lovelorn. She was returning to Detroit to resume her work after her vacation in Reno-her third trip. After arriving safely in Chicago, John discovered in the telephone directory that Doris Huff and Louise Richeson were nurses at the Whitworth Hospital on Lakeside Drive. They were reputed to be regular Florence Nightingales after their untiring service and bravery in World War II. At the information desk and switchboard john found Rosalind Steele. She was delighted to see him and directed him to No. 2A, third floor, where Cooper Miller was recuperating from a nervous breakdown, caused from his jitterbug style of leading his hot swingaroos. Cooper Miller, following in his Uncle Glenn's footsteps, had set the world afire with his orchestra. He had been employed for advertising by Gervis Minnis, corporation owner of an enormous peanut establishment. Stepping into No. ZA, john was impressed by the business-like hum of activity. In one corner was Doctor Charles Bond, the dietitian, Joan Utterback, and the tech- nician, Thelma Goldman, in conference over the condition of Cooper. At the other end of the room, john spied a few orchestra members he recognized. Beth Parsonage and Wilma McKinney, who played the licorice stick, and Elmer Cowen, usually en' veloped in a huge tuba, quietly conversing in worried tones. After making known his presence and learning that the hospital was soon losing their dietitian to the doctor, John left with ,good wishes for Cooper's recovery. just outside the hospital, her pur- chased a Chicago Tribune from the son of Chester Coomer, now manufacturer of a. new improved spaghetti. After exchanging numerous remarks with Chester's son and reminding him to mention him to his father, john hailed a taxi. The taxi driver turned out to be Thomas McDowell. While weaving in and out expertly among the jammed traffic of Michigan Boulevard, Thomas told john about Mrs. McDowell, the former Marjorie Blevins, and how the "little McDowells" had al' ready become speed demons. During their conversation Thomas mentioned that Jack Hoskins was still slaving overna chemistry equation that wouldn't balance. He had tried every number known andlhad so patiently taken notes on all his experiments that he is preparing to publish a scientific book that is sure to solve any puzzling questions a new chemistry student could ask. PAGE TWENTY-FIVE That afternoon john began his trip to Indianapolis on the bus. While walking down Meridian Avenue, he was attracted by a crowd of people. Thinking perhaps there had been an accident, he quickened his gait and soon appeared at the scene of the crime-namely that of an astonished group peering at a humanffly crossing on a rope high above the street level. Someone to the side was giving an eloquent oration on the ability of the tightfrope performer, who john later discovered was none other than Ruth Abbott. The orator, Mary June Williams, explained to john that Ruth had so com' pletely fooled people into looking up, while Ruth had been in high school, merely be' pause she was, that she had finally hit upon the idea of giving them something to look or. As john registered at the Claypool Hotel, he saw where the famous radio com' mentator, Denzil O'Neal, was to appear at Loew's Theatre that night. He was to dis' cuss the pros and cons of "Should We Let the President Run for His Seventh Term?" Another important feature of the program was the electioneering of Bradford Corn, reformed Republican and candidate for State Governor. Running against him on the Democratic ticket was John Truitt. Feeling as though he needed a little gayety to blow away the dust of traveling, john bought his ticket and entered the theatre. Looking around John saw high in her private box, Pilly Lons, known in her high school days as Virginia Smith, who was praised and loved the world round for her captivating performance in the light opera "Madame Butterfly." Hounding her with his "nose for news," was the star reporter of the Indianapolis Times, Francis Hopkins. Miss Lons was reputed to be the most difficult personage to interview of all. times and Francis was determined to master the task and beat all other reporters to the draw. Sitting several rows behind John was Lloyd Hutchinson, playfboy, millionaire, and gentleman farmer. With his trained body-guards, Paul Earles and Philip Crist, not a single jealous avenger had a ghost of a chance to harm this most soughtfafter man. The next morning john checked out of his hotel and traveled by bus to Terre Haute, Indiana, where he had heard that Ramon Meadows was coaching the stellar team of the year-Rose Poly. Coach Meadows' boys simply reked of physique be- cause 'their early morning meal consisted of a new cereal, Brawnie Browns, prepared by the Parke and Blaize Company of Buffalo, New York. John also met Charles Boone in Rose Poly's chemistry lab. Charles had just invented a machine with perpetual mution. By his marvelous discovery he had soared to great heights in the scientific world and was even quoted by the now feeble Einstein. While roaming through the famous art gallery at Terre Haute, john ran across a modernistic art selection of the versatile Margaret Earl McConnell. Besides painting Margaret Earl was noted as a prominent author of many novels. Since the time for his steamer to leave New York was drawing short, John conf cluded that he should start toward New York and hope he could see or hear of the ref maining members of his class during the journey. Shortly after leaving Terre Haute he met Raymond Bigham, a darefdevil flyer of the last war. He still had his jovial, friendly personality but in no way could John persuade Ray to talk of his experiences during the war. Their conversation soon turned toward the reasons for John's wandering around and john gleaned the information from Ray that Virginia Collins was appearing on Broadway in her second performance as Mrs. Winthrop in "Silas Marnerf' The play was considered by the critic, Barbara Rinehart, as the finest production of all times. "Positively unique-perfect direction, uncomparable cast, and an all-rounded production," was her comment. Ray also mentioned, as they were passing through an army camp, that Eleanor Abbott, Lois McLemore, and Doris Leonard were living here happily married to their soldier boys who were high ranking officers. Stopping off at Pittsburgh Ray told john, as he was leaving the streamfliner, not to miss the swell show at the Cornu Theatre which was featuring the magician, Bill Phillips, and Velma Hedges as the lady who disappeared. The show was a hit because of their manager, Elwood, who had never ceased work until they were billed at the most expensive theatres in the largest cities. When john arrived in New York at the Grand Central Station, he spied among the thronging humanity Roger Rothrock, hardfworking billionaire, with his name in "Who's Who," who made the mighty dollar sign by research and discovery of a new synthetic rubber. Roger was so pleased to see john that he immediately offered to escort him around the vast metro lis. Their first jaunt was to the mayor's office. When Lyndon Pirkle had deffeczited Mayor La Guardia two years before, the world's hat had popped right off with intense excitement. But Lyndon had proceeded to make as great a name for himself and had practically pushed LaGuardia into obscurity. Mayor PAGE TWENTY-SIX Pirkle gave out the information that Elizabeth Call, Thelma Schlottman, and Louise Smith were trifowners of a highly advertised sidewalk cafe where several eastern debuf tantes had made their debuts. The highflight of their floor show, which brought loads of applause, was Sue Phillips, bluesfsinger, who really enjoyed her present career because she could sleep all day and stay up all night. With just one afternoon left before his long sea trip began, John and Roger at' tended the Brooklyn Dodgers' and New York Giants' game. The fastest outfielder on Brooklyn's ball club was Gene Stephens. Manager Eugene Swallow was really proud of his ball team. The next morning john bade Roger adieu as he descended on the elevator from Roger's penthouse in the Waldorf-Astoria. As he left the towering skyscrapers and the clamoring swarms of people in New York City behind, he sighed in relief because john realized he had heard about all his friends and could leave the United States with a clear conscience.

S., O. C. H. S.-- Steep Learning's Hill we-ve climbed Its winding paths and byways sought But now new fields we'll find. We've tried to use the passing years So they would bring no sigh, When to our happy days of school We bid our last "Good'bye." O. C. H. S., O. C. H. S.- Four years you've tried to teach The lessons that we all must learn, The heights we all must reach. To us, the class of FortyfTwo, Has come the dreamed of day, The day the Seniors say "Goodbye," And sadly go away. O. C. H. S., O. C. H. S.- We bid farewell to thee, We leave behind to take our place, The class of FortyfThree. Margaret Earl McConnell. OUR HOPES We've been at work for four full years, And hope we've done our best. Though the things that we've failed to finish We'll leave them to the rest. They said we'd have our ups and downs, And I'm sure we've had our share, But when there was something that had to be done, Our class was always there. Our Senior class is very fine, As I'm very glad to say. Because when our school is finished, To success, they'll be on their way. Now that our work is over And we'll soon be on our way, I hope that we've left the school much brighter, Than it was that other day. Charles Bond.

C c voper Miller, Bob Luttrell PAGE THIRTY-FIVE BASKETBALL-1941-42 The Oakland City Acorns began their basketball season in a blaze of glory, winf ning three successive games before those highfflying Spurgeon Cardinals knocked them into the ranks of the defeated. From that time on they hit high places and low places. Due to bad luck in the way of colds and ineligibility the club was somewhat under par most of the time. The major blow came toward the middle of the season when Raymond Bigham was forced to stop playing because of illness. Raymond, an excelf lent forward, played very hard and did more than his part in helping the team on to victory. The greatest victory of the year for the Acorns was when they won the Courier Dope Bag from the highlyfrated Tell City Marksmen in an overtime battle. This game was a regular dogffight from beginning to end. With the acorns in the lead by one point and only seconds remaining in regular playing time, Ramon Meadows, of the Acorns, fouled one of the Marksmen. The foul toss was made after the gun had sounded and pushed the game into an overtime. Tell City brought the ball down the floor and scored. The ball traveled up and down the floor a few times before Bill Kelle tied the score with a left handed shot. The Marksmen took the ball down and shot, the ball rolled off the hoop. An Acorn foul put Tell City ahead 30'29. With only a short time left in the extra threefminute period, Robert Church was fouled while shooting. He calmly strolled to the foul line and made both shots, winning the ball game 31f30. . The remainder of 'the season was not quite so hectic as the first half. During this last half all of the tourneys were held with the Acorns advancing no farther than the semifiinals in any one of them. In the Blind Tourney the Acorns drew Winslow and after pushing the Eskimos for three quarters they fell before a heavy barrage of field goals. They came back to defeat Stendal in the consolation tilt. In the County Tourney, which was held on the home floor, the Acorns ran roughf shod over a smaller Haubstadt club 4Of26. In the semifiinals the Hazleton Lions, tourney winner and a victim of the Acorns in an earlier season game, won- over the boys from O. C. H. S. by a score of 38 to 26. Then came the tourney of the year, THE SECTIONAL! The Acorns went into the sectional with high hopes and great expectations. They gained sweet revenge when they defeated Mt. Olympus, conqueror of the Acorns by virtue of a double overtime in the scheduled game, 40'3O in a fast and furious ball game. Thus they gained the right to meet Ft. Branch in the semiffinals. The Acorns fell before the Twigs by a score of 34fl6. All told the team'broke even in both scheduled and tourney play. They won nine and lost nine scheduled games and won three and lost three tourney games. The season ended with twelve wins and twelve losses. Even the winflost record was the same the Acorns failed to keep up with their opponents in scoringg Acorns 677 points - Opponents 720 points. The Acorns also committed more misdemeanors than did their opponents, they fouled 283 times. The success and failure rests upon the entire team and not any one player.

During the complete season the team sulfered eleven injuries which kept players from participating in many of the games. Several of the games were postponed due to bad weather and when they were played the team was not in good condition. The team enjoyed their play and had a lot of fun. The team feels that although they won only one game they have something to be proud of.
