QKMID murmuring brooks and the twitter of birds stand the magnificent fir
trees for which our state is famous. 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
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.

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.
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.
John Greenleaf Whittier

A.H.S. WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 7
E. A. 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.

10 WHIRLWIND ANNUAL A.H.S.
R. E. McCormack
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,
A tried and proved school board, the chosen representatives of this community, stand
guard to assure the faithful performance of duties.

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.
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.

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

Merrill Flomer Stanford Pontius Roth
Sophomore Class History
A student can be compared to a woodsman. 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.

The Associated Bulldogs organization is made up of every boy in school. The activities
of the organization are directed by twelve leaders and their advisers. 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.

An outstanding meeting was held in honor of "Founders' Day." Alarge attendance
enjoyed a covered dish dinner and heard Superintendent Bennett of Salem speak on "The
Value of Education to our Democracy."
The P.T.A. has played a very important part in the defense program by assisting with
the Red Cross drive, the Defense bond drive, the securing of cots and bedding for use in case
of air raid, and the collecting of used clothing for evacuees. The mobilization of women
for Albany was successfully finished in record time with the assistance of the P.T.A.

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.

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.
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.

The Mischievous Babe
The lumberjacks all say that Babe, the Big Blue Ox, measured forty ax handles and a
plug of chewing tobacco between the horns, Sometimes he was quite playful and got into
mischief. 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.

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.

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

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
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."

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.

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
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.

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.

A H.S. WHIRLWIND ANNUAL 89
From Us To You
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.
Those who love you,The Print Shop Gang

Our Plywood Plant
In March, 1940, James A. 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.

If I had cast a thought that brought resulting wave,
Though e'er so slight the ripple which there trailed
Across life's flood, and that thought some misery save
I'll feel within my heart I have not failed.
Or if some act of mine shall good example set
For those whose Crudities are thinly veiled,
And they pass on the lesson which they get,
To that extent I'll know I have not failed.
And if while stumbling o'er this road of life,
O'errak1ng some to s0rrow's cross fast nailed,
I leave some cheer--Y attempt to lessen strife-
Then who will dare to say that I have failed,

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

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.
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
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
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.
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?
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
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.
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
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.

of fine accomplishments and sturdy character.

Work and your profits 'will be great.
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

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'

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."
' 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
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-
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

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
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.
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
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
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.

Continuation of We Wonder
If Lyndon Pirkle likes Winslow better than Oakland City.
If the teachers are glad to get rid of the class of '42,
How many different classes Miss Smith teaches each day.
How many class plays Mr. Cloin will direct during his school years.
By Francis Dale Hopkins.
Yes, our dear high school days are o'er
Still we have much to dog
Though these four years we've labored hard
We know we are not through.
O. C. H. 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.
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.

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
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
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.
The records of individuals and team are as follows:

The Oakland City "Mud Splashingn Acornsfcompleted their 1941 football season
with a record of one win and seven losses.
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.
