Where once there were ink and paper and manpower and
opportunities galore, there is now only a blank space. Where once
a job could be accomplished easily if only one had the money, now
everyone has the money, but no one will do the work.
The Whirlwind has had to be printed under such conditions,
and it was by no means the easiest of tasks. Still, all that the men
and women in the armed forces have given up during the war is a
great sacrifice compared to the small inconveniences the Annual
staff has endured.
Perhaps the Whirlwind Annual will seem a little more valuable
this year, since it WAS on the brink of complete collapse two or
three times because of wartime conditions. No matter what its result,
the Annual staff is proud to present to you the 1943 Whirlwind.
The 1943 Whirlwind Annual is dedicated in general to all
alumni and alumnae of Albany High School who are serving their
country in one of the many divisions of the armed forces and in
particular to those students who left for the service before gradu-
ating or before completing their school year.
The school is proud of them, glad to hear of their promotions
and their activities. A newspaper account . . . a pair of silver wings
. . . "He's from Albany High" . . . and a glow of pride.
And then, of course, there is the serious side of it-John Doe
. . . missing in action . . . a graduate of Albany High School . . .
and we are sad, yet proud to think that one of "our boys" has made
the greatest sacrifice of all for his country.
To these heroic men and women, the 1943 Whirlwind Annual
is dedicated, because they are fighting for the freedom which will
make it possible to have future annuals in the years to come.
OW GP NQVQP
Listen, young heroes! your country is calling!
Time strikes the hour for the brave and the true!
Now, while the foremost are fighting and falling,
Fill up the ranks that have opened for you!
You whom the fathers made free and defeated,
Stain not the scroll that emblazons their fame!
You whose fair heritage spotless descended,
Leave not your children a birthright of shame!
Stay not for questions while Freedom stands gasping!
Wait not till Honor lies wrapped in his pall!
Brief the lips' meeting be, swift the hands, clasping,-
"Off for the wars!" is enough for them all!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
1943 THE WHIRLWIND 9
P. U SOI1 S QSSCIQQ
The editor and staff members of our Whirlwind Annual are to be congratulated
upon the manner in which they have selected a theme and in the way in which
they have carried out this theme. They have dedicated it to the boys in the service,
and they have placed the honor of dedication where honor is most due-to that
of our boys in the service. Our students and former students who are fighting on
practically all battlefronts of the entire world certainly deserve this honor.
Albany High School, as in the past, is now doing its part to uphold the tra-
ditions and honors of this great country. Our boys are to be found in practically
every branch of the service, the Army, Navy, Marines, Artillery Corps, Flying Corps,
Infantry, Radar, and all other branches. But the boys in this case are not the only
ones who are representing this country in the service. We have teachers as well
as students who are in different branches of the service. There are students and
former students who are members of the WAVES, WAACS, SPARS, and that most
important held of service, the great nursing profession. To all of those in the
service, both boys and girls, we hope for them all of the honors that can be bestowed
upon individuals or groups.
In this war, there is another great change that is taking place. All who are
left behind may feel a more vital interest in the activities of those at the front
than ever before. The group here in school this year deserve a great deal of
credit. They have been patriotic and have played a viral part in rationing campaigns,
stamp and bond sales, Red Cross drives, scrap metal and tin drives, safety, forest
protection work, food conservation, farm labor crop planting, and the saving of
many food crops. All students deserve great credit for the manner in which they
have assisted in all of these important campaigns. In the bond and stamp drive
alone, we have purchased enough stamps and bonds to buy many jeeps, or hun-
dreds of parachutes, or hundreds of sub-machine guns, or scores of the new Garand
rifles, or thousands of bayonets, or hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammuni-
tion. While we have made a fine record this year, our motto should be "Save more,
conserve more food, and buy more bonds and stamps" in order that those who are
fighting away from home may have enough.

' We have now been at war nearly a year and
' a half. The impact of this gigantic struggle is
affecting every institution and every individual
of our great nation. The schools have been
called upon to make many adjustments and to
perform many new duties. We believe our
teachers and our students have done a good job
and merit the many expressions of appreciation.
We know that new responsibilities are coming
and earnestly trust we shall always be able and
willing to do our full part.
Soon after war began, we saw our former
students joining the armed forces. Now they are
leaving our classrooms. The 18 - year - old has
been called, and the call has received a ready
response. This has directed the attention of a
grateful people to its youth in such a manner
that an editorial writer has said, "If the 18-year-
W olds are old enough to defend our democratic
j life on the battlefield, they are old enough to
defend the American way at the ballot box."
MR. R. E. MCCORMACK
A senator has introduced a joint resolution
before Congress proposing an amendment to the constitution that would extend
suffrage to citizens of the United States who are eighteen years old or older.
Why not? Youth will be ready to meet the new challenge. Learning about a
functioning citizenship through classroom activities will take on a new zest when the
functioning voice does not seem so far away. Do we believe in the youth of America?
Let us hope that both confidence and appreciation will be shown by granting them
the right to vote as soon as possible.
The Albany school board now has its first woman member. We were grateful
for the fine service of Mr. O. P. Romaine. Now we are glad to welcome Mrs. T. G.
Cowgill to the ranks of a fine and competent board of education. The schools are
moving smoothly ahead under its administration. The members are Mr. D. E.
Nebergall, chairmang Mr. C. E. Spence, Mr. A. G. Senders, Mr. V. L. Calavan, and
Mr. D. H. Brenneman, clerk.

The present senior class got into the "Bulldog spirit" when they first entered
Albany High School in 1940 as sophomores
Our first trip to the ballot box elected Rodney Russell as president of the class.
This office was given to Bill Mitchell during our junior year. 1942-43 found us as
seniors with Ronald Wallis, president, Dale Churchill, vice-president, Jim Linn,
secretary, Alma Scofield, treasurer, Howard Weddle, student council representativeg
and John Welbes, adviser.
First we undertook the task of giving the lonesome sophomores a "hearty"
welcome. What fun!
Then we branched out-two capable girls undertook the editing of the Whirl-
wind, and a third fthey say she's humanj took the job of editing the Annual.
The sports enthusiasts swarmed to our new coach, Bob Buchanan, with their
blossoming talent. The most outstanding all-around athlete proved to be Bud
Fortier, who was active in football, basketball, and baseball. Ranking among the
football players were Archie Hayes, Lyle lVlacHugh, Leon Simons, Darrell Byers,
George Ambrosek, Bud Long, Bob Kelty, and Delmar Boylan. Basketball stars were
Bud Long, Leon Simons, Dale Churchill, Pat Koos, Norman Wordehoff, and Bob
Kelty. Baseball took Archie Hayes and Bud Long.
The Albany High School band won many more honors with its ranks composed
of a good part from seniors, the most outstanding of whom were Bill Fisher, Eva
Agee, Carlton Eastburn, Ruth Morgan, and Russell Stewart.
Inspired by our love of drama, we helped produce several plays. Active in such
dramatic productions were Wilbur Senders, Betty French, Stuart Gourley, and Jack
To represent our knowledge, sixteen seniors became members of the National
Now, after being in Albany High School three years, we are walking through
the doors for the last time. We are walking into something bigger--something that
perhaps when we entered this school, none of us ever dreamed would confront us.
We are going out to do our best and, though many of us shall die, we shall go out
upon the battlefield unafraid and determined, for we shall remember our class motto
of 1943: "We fight to live or to die, so that freedom will live on.',

The students of the sophomore class were frightened as they began their
journey on September 21, 1943.
Rivalry was evident between the two training stations, Camp Central and Camp
Madison. After the smoke of battle had cleared, Art Blanchard became pilot, Paul
Kennel, co-pilot, Pat Tycer, navigator, Louise Schlegel, chief keeper of the moneyg
Eugene Zarones, class representative to the council, and Miss Stanford, class adviser.
En ine trouble was encountered durin October, in the form of the So homore

Reception. Tickets were sold to several unsuspecting members for this much heralded
and dreaded event.
After severe training and teaching, talent and ability were discovered.
Boys prominent in football were Eugene Zarones and Paul Kennel, and in
basketball, Eugene Zarones, Paul Kennel, Earl Kenagy, and Dan Heins were out-
standing. Many members of the camp were connected with the dramatics and glee
clubs, the school paper, the band, and the operetta.

The Albany F. F. A. chapter had a very good year. The officers were the following:
Gordon Cooley, president, Johnny Grenz, vice-president, Reed Vollsredt, secretaryg Lyle
MacHugh, treasurer, Stanley Gourley, reporter, John Welbes, adviserg and Cliff Slaton and
Don Seavy, executive members. There were fifty students taking agriculture this year.
The boys had their 12th annual Parent and Son banquet in the gym on November 14,
with one hundred and sixty guests, parents, and boys attending. Letters were awarded at the
banquet to Gordon Cooley for public speakingg Johnny Grenz for the outstanding member,
Gordon Cooley, Stuart Gourley, and Stanley Gourley for dairy judgingg Zolman Bond and
Lyle MacHugh for livestock judging, and Arben Steinmeyer for best sophomore.
The Albany F. F. A. chapter entered the National Chapter Contest in competition with
7600 other schools throughout the nation. They won first place in the eleven western states,
and first in the silver award group, which was fourth in the nation. The boys entered a scrap-
book which listed achievements for the whole chapter, and in which each boy had a page for
himself on his work.
The boys did work for some of the farmers who were unable to get help. All the money
earned went into the chapter treasury. .
On the twenty-four acres of land that the boys rented, they made S125 profit, which also
went into the treasury.
Some of the pigs from the gilt that the chapter purchased last year from Illinois were put
out on shares to boys who had trouble getting projects. The rest were sold to good breeders
throughout the state.
The District Parliamentary Procedure Contest and the Public Speaking Contest were
held here again in competition with seven other schools. The boys dropped to second place this
year after winning first place the two years before.
The Oregon Farmer's Degree was won by Earl Kennel, Alvin Kreger, Don Groves, and
Frank Lovejoy last year. This was more than any other chapter in the state received. The
boys eligible this year are Johnny Grenz, Don Behrends, Gordon Cooley, Zolman Bond,
Stanley Gourley, Lyle MacHugh, and Rex Bishop.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The Takenah Chapter of the National Honor Society was introduced to the Albany High

THE LITERARY EXPLORERS' CLUB
The Literary Explorers' Club is a national organization which is open to all senior English
students who have grades of one's or two's. Membership in the club is based on memorizing
poetry and notable quotations from the six fields of literature listed in the "Treasure Chest."
The symbols of the organization are the "Treasure Chesti' and the "Pilot Wheel"g the
latter is a heavy bronze wheel with a nautical compass. The first club member to learn all the
quotations always receives this wheel free, as a prize from Miss Chase. This year Bernadine
Yagen made a record of learning Z07 quotations in four days. The president is also entitled
to one of the coveted wheels, if she complies with the necessary requirements.
When the club was first organized in 1931, the members began a scrapbook, which is now
full of Literary Explorer news and interesting photos.
One of the Literary Explorers is now with the armed forces. The 1943 officers are Winona

Webster defines duteous as, "obligatory service, fulfilling duty, obedient-." And with
what more apt term could we define the Livewires? How brief the above statement, but what
service does it include! Truly Albany High School should be proud of its service organization,
The Livewires took charge of the ticket-selling, gate managing, and ticket-takinf' at the
football and basketball games. They sold the War Stamps, tickets for noon movies, pay
assemblies, and other school-sponsored entertainment. They also helped with the penny drive,
the Red Cross pledges, and the roll room balloting.
' 1942-1943 Livewire officers were Pete Henshaw, president, Mary Faulkner, vice-presidentg
Joe Ann Libby, secretary, Ed Tempel, treasurer, and Dave'Hamouris, reporter.

The activities sponsored by the Latin club this year were of the patriotic nature, as the

The Library Club consists this year of a group of students who have volunteered their

At the club's monthly meetings, the students have the opportunity to obtain a better

The students feel that they are benefited by their work because it gives them the

also gain self-assurance and poise in meeting and serving their fellow students.
The student body is benefited by the service of this club in notifying students of over-due
books. By this procedure the fine for these books has been eliminated.
The club this year has been ably lead by Joe Taucher, president, Virlee Miles, vice-
president, Lavelle Groat, secretary-treasurer, and Mrs. Childs, adviser.

The part-time cooperative vocational educational program is now in its third year of
successful operation in the Albany High School. Each year, new industries are adding ap-
prentices to their list of employees. Because of the shortage of labor during this emergency,
the vocational department is unable to meet the demands. The outstanding feature of the
Trade and Industries Vocational Program is the fact that Albany students are trained for
Albany jobs. These students spend one hour daily in related subjects familiarizing themselves
with the vocational fields of their fellow students as well as improving their skills in their own

The parents of the band members compose the Band Boosters Club, which operates with
the intention of raising funds to buy uniforms, to send the band on trips to contests, and to
do other things to help the band.
The Band Boosters Club has not rnet as regularly as in former years, but it has been very
active working toward their aims, with Mrs. Hyde as president.
Mr. Bloom has been assisting Mrs. Hyde, acting as vice-president, with Mrs. Cowgill,
secretary, and Mr. A. Cx. Senders as treasurer.
The student treasurers of the various organizations in Albany High School comprise the
"Associated Treasurersf' This club aims to bring into closer relationship with the student
association the treasurers of the high school groups so that they may work together more har-
moniously, follow a uniform method of keeping accountsg and learn to keep a close check on
all business matters that develop within their respective clubs.
The student treasurer, Betty Fisher, is the president this year. Faculty adviser is Miss Voyen.
As no formal organization meeting has been held, no other officers have been elected.
Cooperation, good citizenship, correct attitude, and willingness to serve the student associa-
tion are the objectives of this group.
RADIO AND PHOTO CLUB
The Radio and Photo Club has had a hard time completing work because of diminish-
ing supplies, for most of the necessary material has been taken by the government.
' The club is under the direction of Mr. Wynd. There are six members participating.
In radio, their intentions are to promote the study of the following: code practice,
elementary electricity, the radio tubes, and simple radio circuits.
In photography, they have studied film, exposure, developing, printing, enlarging, copying,
lantern slides, and simple composition.
Both of these sections alternate with each other. The students have had informal class
discussion, but most of their study has been concentrated on laboratory work.

high school auditorium, it gave the orchestra an opportunity to broadcast over that station
approximately twice each month since December 1.
In addition to other activities, the orchestra has played for the school play "Ever Since
Evei' and performed at the Christmas program in conjunction with the glee club and the chorus.
The orchestra also appears for the commencement exercises and other school functions.

"Hats Off!" a two-act patriotic comedy, was presented to the public February 5 by the
chorus and glee clubs of the high school under the able direction of Clare Stewart McMullen.
The story of "Hats Off!" took place during the Revolutionary War and told of the ex-
periences of John Paul Jones and the crew of his ship while it was docked in port.
The singing roles were taken by Joe Taucher, Jean Scott, Winona Stauble, Maryan
Howard, and Nancy Banks, while the speaking parts were assigned to Duane Vargo, Geraldine
Haas, Helen Ellis, Arthur Muller, Loren Roth, Bob Marquis, Orville Volz, Jim Crocker, Henry
Velkinburg, Leon Simons, and Charlie Thompson.
Lauralea Reeser and Betty French were the accompanists, with Dorothy Schultz, Lois Fuller,
and Shirley Traylor having charge of the costumes and properties.

Three acts of fun and comedy were woven about a high school newspaper, which two
boys tried to edit, hampered by the efforts of two high school girl editors. Interruptions by a.
southern belle, a measles epidemic, a romance between the school principal and journalism
teacher, a pinball racket, and a school prom added to the hilarity.

Upholding the prestige set for Albany High School in the world of sports
by Captain Tommy Swanson and Lieutenant Dwight Adams during their
stay at Albany high is a big job for two very good men, and this job has fallen
on to the shoulders of one man. Coach Bob Buchanan is not new to the citizens
of Albany, as he had most of his schooling in Albany. He entered the Albany
public schools from Alaska, where he lived his first seven years. Starting in the
eighth grade, he completed junior high and entered Albany Senior High School. In
high school he was an all-around athlete, being a two-year letterman in football,
baseball, basketball, and track. Upon graduating from high school, Bob entered
Albany College and received his Bachelor's Degree. In college he also starred in
athletics and lettered in every sport. After graduating from college, he took the
head coach's position at Nestucca Union High School in Cloverdale, Oregon, where
he stayed for seven years.
In 1941 he did graduate work at Oregon State and received his Master's
Degree. He then accepted the head coach's duties at Albany and intends to stay
here until such a time, as he will be called into the armed forces.
Coach Buchanan had a big job cut out for him. The backing of everyone in
the city of Albany as well as every student of Albany Senior High School helped

ALBANY, 193 SILVERTON, 0
The Bulldogs journeyed to Silverton to engage the Orange and Black in a pre-
season game to test the lessons that had been given to the local team in the pre-game
practice. The newcomers led the team to victory as Fortier and Simons did the
scoring chores. Fortier proved himself very valuable to their grid machine as he
passed the Bulldogs to their win over the Silverton team. He was spectacular on a
fifty-five yard run for one touchdown and passed to Merrill for another. Simons
completed the scoring with an eleven-yard gallop, and then he added the extra point.
Kelty was captain.
ALBANY, 135 SALEM, 6
After the battle had raged back and forth for the first three quarters, both
teams found their scoring punch, with Albany scoring twice and Salem once. Simons
passed to Byers for the first score. On the next set of Salem plays the Vikings tried
to catch the Bulldogs off-guard with a pass from deep in their own territory. It
boomeranged in their faces as Hayes saw it coming and followed the receiver out.
When it looked as if the Salem men were in the clear, Hayes jumped high in the air
to take the pass on the Salem 40. From there he ran it back to score. Simons added
the conversion. Kelty again captained the Bulldogs.
ALBANY, 195 OREGON CITY, 12
The Pioneers gave the Bulldogs their first scare when they scored and when the
Bulldogs found themselves behind for the first time in the 1942 season. The Oregon
City lads held the Bulldog gridsters throughout the first quarter while they them-
selves went on to score the initial touchdown of the game. The Bulldogs finally
scorecl in the second quarter on a pass from Simons to Hayes, with Simons failing to
convert. The Pioneers came back, however, in the second half to take the opening
kickoff and race back 80 yards to payclirt and again to put Albany in the hole. Fortier
1943 THE WHIRLWIND 73
countered this a few minutes later when he took a Pioneer punt on his own 15 and
completely outran the defense to score. This was added to again in the fourth
quarter. Simons connected with Hayes on the same play that had scored earlier to
finish the scoring as Hayes converted to make the score 19-12. Boylan was captain.
ALBANY, 65 LEBANON, 0
The Albany team, by merit of three wins up to this time, had built up a little
over-confidence for the Lebanon game and was looking for an easy time with the
Warriors. The little red and white berry pickers unleashed all the pent-up fury that
they could muster and stopped the Bulldogs cold with every trick in the game.
Seemingly, the Bulldogs had to put out everything they had to overcome the fighting
Warriors. They said, "We poured it on and still couldn't get any place." Late in the
first quarter the Bulldogs got the ball on a weak punt on the Warrior 45-yard line.
From here they drove to the one-foot line where the quarter ended with Albany
having the ball, fourth down, and goal to go. As the second stanza started, the Bull-
dogs failed to make the one foot and lost the ball on downs. The Bulldogs were not
to be denied. Fortier took the Warriors' punt on their 45 and raced it back to paydirt
and the slim margin of victory. MacHugh was captain.
ALBANY, 03 MILWAUKIE, 7
The Bulldogs were defeated for the first time of the season by the Milwaukie
Maroons on their home field with a bitter score of 7-0. The Maroons, led by Ober-
staller, got the jump on the Bulldogs in the first quarter when they took the Bull-
dogs' opening kickoff. After four plays Cress hit the paydirt on the fifth for the only
score of the game. After the Albany boys had recovered from this first splurge, they
calmed down. While they didn't let the Maroons score again, they could not get their
offense working. The whole game was played on the Albany goal line without the
Bulldogs getting near the Maroon line. The closest they got was the Maroon 30-yard
line in the last quarter as the game ended. Hayes was captain.
ALBANY, 265 CORVALLIS, 18
The Bulldogs went into their annual rivalry with the Spartans with a new feeling
after the defeat handed them by Milwaukie. The Bulldogs had themselves keyed up
to the utmost for the game and consequently were trying too hard. The Spartans got
going smoothly and scored two touchdowns before Albany could get started. Albany
scored two touchdowns in the second canto, but the Spartans countered with one
more to lead the half 18-13. Albany went on a last minute scoring spree and counted
two scores in the last quarter. Although the honor went to Simons for the scoring in
this game, the real honor should have been heaped on the speedy little Archie Hayes.
Hayes, who had played consistently all season, really ground himself through

With the season cut down considerably by the rationing and everything in a
jumble for the new coach, Bob Buchanan, to straighten out, the Albany Bulldogs
started the 1943 season with a half-way defeatist attitude until things began to roll.
In their first game the Bulldogs rolled up a 49-9 score on the hapless Jefferson Lions.
This did not impress them too much, however, because of the size of the school. As
the season wore on, the games became a little harder, but the Bulldogs pulled through
most of them in the win column.
The season had taken on the aspect of "then season for the Bulldogs, but after
losing only three games to outside opponents, the Bulldogs lost one to Lebanon that
put them in the hole against Corvallis. Added to this loss, the second loss to Cor-
vallis put Albany out of the district title.
In the line of statistics, Long and Simons battled for high scoring honors. Long
scored 147 points, and Simons scored 137 points. Simons is also in the running with
Wordehoff and Fortier for the role of the team's "bad boy," with all of them
crowding the 40-mark for personal fouls. In the percentage columns on the indi-
vidual scoring, we find that Fortier, while having only 87 points, tops the percentage
with .297, followed by Long with .284.

The Albany High School Bulldogs were marked by the effects of the war.
As the turnout was disappointingly small for the first few weeks of practice, the hope
for a successful year seemed very small. Along with minor restrictions on equipment
came the setback of insufficient calibre of players. The team was rounded out from
the members that returned from last year. Later several transfers helped a lot as the
season got under way.
Coming from Toledo was Leon Simons, who proved to be a big part of the spark
that the Bulldogs needed. Another addition to the squad was Bud Fortier, who was
already known to the sports fans in Albany through his baseball and basketball for
the varsity Bulldog teams. These two boys who were new to the Bulldog gridiron
team were hastily shown the same system of football that was used by the team the
year before. Combined with the other members, they made up a team that surprised
themselves as well as the doubtful well-wishers of Albany.
Coach Buchanan came to this team with a good system of football, but since he
was subject to draft, he decided to continue the same system that was taught to the
players by Tom Swanson the year before. This plan was to help the Bulldogs in case
he should be taken into the service.
The players who made the first team and earned the right to appear on the
travelling squad were Zarones, Byers, Erb, Barnes, MacHugh, Ambrosek, Bond,
Richardson, Linn, Boylan, O. Kennel, Spencer, P. Kennel, Kelty, Russell, and Cutts.
In the backfield their appeared Fortier, Hayes, Merrill, Simons, A. Ohling, and O.
The first game proved disastrous to Zed Merrill, who injured his knee and was
out the rest of the season. Late in the season the team was strengthened by the com-
ing of A. C. Hourigan, who helped fill the vacancies that were left in the backfield.
A sizable number of Albany High School athletes of previous years have gone
into Uncle Sam's service. The 1942 graduates include Bob Hermens and Ray Worde-
hoff, both of whom have gone into the Naval Air Corps. The Navy has taken Bob
Jacobson, Bob Thompson, and Thad Looney.
On the 1941 alumni jake Prince, Clarence Bates, and Eldon Starkey are in the
Army Air Corps, while Laird Hyde has joined the Navy. Bum Oberson is a soldier
in the Army, and Bob Morris, appropriately enough, is in the paratroops.
The 1940 athletes have as their representatives in the armed forces Jack Bird,
Dick Hutcheson, Dick McReynolds, Don Wilson, and Willard Hulburt, who are in
the United States Army. Royal Cox, a former student body president as well as an
outstanding athlete, is now a navy man.
These are by no means all of them, for many other football, basketball, and
baseball stars have taken their places in various branches of the United States service.

In answer to the first call for 1942 baseball aspirants, the large talented group
which turned out made Coach Dwight Adams's hopes run high. In his first meeting
with the squad, Coach Adams recognized the team which, with only a few changes,
had won the No-Name league championship the year before. The ones missing were
Bobby Morris, and Bill and Bob Miklcelson. Filling these places was not an easy job,
but Bud Long was ordered to play first base instead of his regular third base spot.
This change brought out the best, as Long proved to be one of the best first base
defenders that Albany has ever seen.
In the regular high school league, the Bulldogs won fifteen games and lost one.
That game was lost to the Eugene Axemen. However, they went on to win the
No-Name league championship.
In the extra games, the Bulldogs had some trouble with the freshmen teams of
Oregon State and the University of Oregon. The Bulldogs were beaten in the four
games that they played with these teams.

In the Major league, Gordon Cooley's Cyclones swept both rounds undefeated
and copped a two-game series from the Spitfires Z3-14 and Z4-18 for the champion-
The Spitfires in the Minor league won the opening round undefeated and lost
the second round to the Mustangs. The Spitfires edged out the Mustangs 14-13 for
the right to meet the Cyclones in the final play-offs.
This yearls intramural program has been largely around basketball, boxing,
wrestling, ping pong, and badminton. Since the loss of Howard Weddle, last year's
successful intramural leader, the program was turned over to Mr. Buchanan, who
was assisted by Zed Merrill.
Since competition was again centered around two leagues, consisting of four
teams in the major and minor leagues, the program developed successfully.
The purpose of the intramural program was to give every boy who lacked the
ability to engage in major activities a chance to participate in sports.
All competition was held in the gym during the noon hours, and drew large
crowds to the games.
1943 THE WHIRLWIND 79
The physical education and athletic programs of the high schools have under-
gone considerable change during the past year of the war. While Albany has not
made any radical changes in the program this year, there has been a greater emphasis
on physical fitness in the gym classes. The influence of the army and navy condi-
tioning training has been apparent.
The aim of the athletic training in the armed services has been to maintain a
practical balance between conditioning drills for physical fitness and an intensified
program of competitive sports including football, basketball, baseball, track, swim-
ming, and others. Some schools have been abandoning these sports, but most have
been carrying on with greater numbers participating and more emphasis on the intra-
mural program. This is in line with the recommendation of the navy to make the
competitive sports supplement the conditioning drills, so that each boy will have an
opportunity to put himself in the best possible condition to carry out his particular
job wherever he may be stationed in any branch of the armed services.

Spartans and couldn't be stopped, as he practically ran the legs off the college city
lads. He passed and ran the ball down the field, where Simons was always waiting to
pack it over at the last minute. Fortier and Ambrosek were co-captains.
ALBANY, 6, EUGENE, 18
The Eugene Axemen came to Albany with the best team that has graced the
Lane county school in many years to beat the Bulldogs in the final game of the year
for the No-Name league championship. When the game started, the Bulldogs were
all ready for the Axemen. After kicking off, they took the ball from the Eugene
gridsters on their own 30-yard line. The Bulldogs in two plays pounded to paydirt
for their only score of the game. The Axemen came back on the next set of plays to
push their way back down the field to score, making the count 6-6. The game waged
back and forth, with Albany twice threatening dangerously in the second quarter.
Finally in the last quarter when the Bulldogs' defense weakened, the Axemen scored
twice to win, 18-6. They won also the No-Name league championship. Kelty and
Kennel were co-captains.

iss Beverleq Sieel
Miss Beverley Steel, instructor of Girls' Physical Education at Albany High
School, was born in Michigan. She was graduated from Richwood High School
in Richwood, West Virginia.
In 1940 she received her bachelor of science degree at the University of
Oregon. During the summer of the same year she started work on her master,s
degree and hopes to finish it soon.
Her unusual athletic skill, her pleasing personality, and her talent for under-
standing girls are only a few of the many reasons why she is admired and liked
by everyone who knows her. A

The Girls' physical education department has as its goal the development of
"all-around" girls. To show the outstanding ability of those who achieve this goal,
the Girls' Athletic Association always presents honor pins to four girls of the gradu-
ating class. These four girls must show outstanding work in sports and must comply
with the rules of cooperation, leadership, general character traits, attitudes toward
health habits, and interest in school affairs.
Vivian Cosler, president of G. A. A., is outstanding in athletics, sportsmanship,
and leadership. As a sophomore, she was secretary of her class. When she was a
junior, she was selected to be a member of "Seventeen," an honorary girls' organiza-
tion. She played on volleyball and basketball first teams in both her junior and
Nancy Banks, known for her friendly smile and personality, played on all
volleyball and basketball first teams. As a junior, she was vice-president of G. A. A.
In her senior year she was president of the Girls' Federation and "Seventeen" She
belonged to the Honor Society and the Secretarial Club.
Ruth Morgan is outstanding in cooperation and leadership. She played on
volleyball first teams in high school. In her junior year she was elected to be a mem-
ber of "Seventeen" While she was a senior, she was treasurer of G. A. A. She was a
member of the Secretarial Club, the Literary Explorers, and the 1943 Annual Staff.
Jane Luther has been outstanding in athletics and scholarship. She played on
volleyball and softball first teams. In her senior year, she was the president of the
Honor Society, the head of softball in G. A. A., a member of the Literary Explorers
and the Secretarial Club, and was one of the typists on the 1943 Annual staff. She
also acted as secretary in Mr. Hudson's office.

The Girls' Athletic Association has had a successful7year under the able leader-
ship of Miss Beverley Steel and the following officers: Vivian Cosler, president,
Barbara Hobbs, secretary, Ruth Morgan, treasurer, jerry Haas, sergeant-at-arms.
The sports leaders were Joanne Swander, basketball, Doris Kelly, volleyball, Jane
Luther, softball, Betty French, badminton, Hendrina Van Leeuwen, individual
sports, Nancy Banks, archery, Shirley Bird, ping-pong, Mabel Pontius, tennis,
Dorothy Roth, bowling, and Carol Reeser, golf.
One of the main events of the year was the day of the initiation. A whole day
was devoted to the G. A. A. members and their pledges. The girls attracted the
attention of the whole school, with the bright-colored ribbons in their hair, as they
passed through the halls and in their classes.
Calisthenics is perhaps the first to be mentioned because of its newness in the
gym classes. The girls of Albany High School are very much interested in becoming
physically fit and have worked very hard and steadily at their physical fitness
Volleyball and basketball, as in previous years, have been the two most popular
sports among the girls. Teams were picked, and tournament games were played off
in the gym after school, with much enthusiasm displayed by each team. "All-star"
teams were picked from all classes according to individual skill.
The volleyball "all-star" team was made up of seniors: Doris Kelly, Jane Luther,
Alma Scofield, Edna Tobey, Darlene Govro, Nancy Banks, and Shirley Bird,
juniors: Dorothy Roth, Betty Bates, Hendrina Van Leeuwen, Barbara Hobbs, and
Jerry McMahan, and sophomores: Margaret Van Leeuwen, Lois May Peterson, and
The basketball "all-star" team selected were forwards: Alma Scofield, Vivian
Cosler, Hendrina Van Leeuwen, Barbara Hobbs, Betty Jean Kutsch, Margaret
Van Leeuwen, and Lois May Peterson, guards: Donna Cook, Doris Kelly, Betty
Bates, and Ruth Childs.
Badminton, tennis, archery, ping-pong, golf, and bowling were equally popular
with the girls, with tournaments being played in each sport.

lbclnq iqh School ous in the Service
Our country now in time of war has called many of our boys from Albany.
Some have been able to complete their high school education, some have not.
We the students of Albany High School are proud of these boys. They have
been doing a fine job protecting the folk on the home front.
In history books we used to read about wars and the tragedy of war and thought
how far away from our own peaceful life in the land of liberty they were. War has
finally struck home! Not only have our own boys here at home gone away to fight,
but also one of our boys who was to have graduated with the class of '43 has recently
been captured by the Germans. This boy is Gale Sorenson, who, while in Albany
High School, was very prominent in athletics. At the time of his capture he was
co-pilot of a flying-fortress in the Army Air Corps. The plane was lost during a
bombing raid on Germany.
There are many boys from Albany High School who have been lying in
fox-holes at Guadalcanal, tramping through the mud and insects in New Guinea,
suffering in the sun in North Africa, and flying bombers and pursuit planes over
We are proud of our boys, and we will back all of them.
During February Orville "Corky', Volz, the vice-president of the student body,
who had been doing such a fine job, joined the Army Air Corps, and all his friends
and classmates were sorry to see him go.
Another student was drafted into the navy in March. Hal Brunson, who was
manager of many athletic events in the high school, sports editor on the paper staff,
and sports editor of the Whirlwind Annual, was a sad loss to the school.
A spring prom was given Friday evening, April 9, by the Honor Society and
the senior class in the gymnasium. The room was prettily decorated with a false
crepe-paper ceiling and various scenes. A1 Benning's orchestra provided the music
to which approximately 70 danced.
The Memorial Hall was the scene of a G. A. A. Spinster Skip dance April 23,
to which the boys were invited and escorted by the girls. Loren Luper's band played
at this sport dance.
The annual Junior-Senior Prom took place in the gym May 21, sponsored, of
course, by the junior class. The gym was decorated attractively and an orchestra
played for the dancers.

90 ' THE WHIRLWIND 1943
Albany High School,s 1943 carnival had as its theme Pan-America. The
seniors, juniors, and sophomores gave their acts in a gala stage show in the audi-
torium, Friday night, April 30.
Nancy Banks ruled over the festivities as Queen Nancy I. The other members
of her court were princesses Shirley Bird and Betty Fisher, seniors, Mabel Pontius,
Betty Bates, and Darline Reiley, juniors, and Carolyn Jenks, Virginia Waggener,
and Louise Schlegel, sophomores.
Loud Sock Day, which is the annual carnival day for all high school and junior
high students, was noteworthy this year for the varied costumes of all the partici-
pants. The parade through the downtown business section was somewhat modified,
but it was a gay procession, nevertheless.
After the show in the auditorium, there were concessions in the gym. Although
these also had been somewhat affected by the war, they really provided as much
fun and entertainment as in previous years.
SONNET TG THE SKV
By John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings,
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds-and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of-wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there,
I've chased the shouting wind along and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
Where never lark, or even eagle, flew,
And while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
1943 THE WHIRLWIND .91
Now that thereare but a few more pages to turn, the poor disappointed reader
who expected the 1942-43 Annual to be outstandingly different from any previous
annual, has decided it is, save for a very few minor exceptions, practically the same
as last year's, though perhaps just a little bit worse. He for she, as the fingernails
may indicate, is beginning to wonder whether it was worth his seventy-five cents.
After looking it over the second time, he is willing to concede it is worth twenty-five
cents. In ten years he would refuse a pawn shop's offer of five hundred dollars.
However, the poor reader would have preferred to have his picture look better, but
since the photographer had rather poor material for subject matter, it really wasn't
his fault. But that's beside the point . . .
After glancing at other editors' explanations in which they told at great length
of all the different processes an annual goes through before it is completed, the
fact comes to mind that 99 44f100 percent of the readers aren't interested, anyhow.
These readers must take the staff's word for it that it was hard work and never say
that they think it's the "crummiest" annual on record, because the chances are they
will get their noses moved an inch or two.
There have been times when the various staff members, after being severely
run through the grinder by Miss Chase and Mr. Hudson, have been on the verge of
having nervous breakdowns. And there have also been times when a date and a coke
sounded much more attractive than spending an evening writing stories for the
Annual. But after taking one glance at the finished product, we are proud as Punch
to have done it.
One person on the staff, Jean Blaylock, has been in a lather ever since December
about the photographs, but we who sat back and grinned at him really appreciate all
his efforts. Another hard-working gal is Jerry McMahan, who gave up more time
and skipped more classes than anyone else in her efforts to resurrect all the ads.
The other staff members did their work, too, often into the wee hours of the
morning, so this is to thank them for what they have done.
Of all the people in the high school, the one who gave up the most for the
Annual is Mr. Wynd. All the film he used to take group pictures was from his own
private supply, and he is unable to get any more. The staff really appreciates what
Mr. Bennett has also devoted many valuable hours and ideas to the art section.
Without his and Martha Pharis's cooperation, the Annual would be a sad affair
And we apologize to all the long-suffering teachers who tried to appear as if
they didn't mind our barging right into their classes to get information so that we
wouldn't miss the deadline for stories.
And now, as the poor swan folds up his wings and slowly sinks to the bottom,
will everyone please notice the "Do not disturb" signs? The task is over, the staff
is dead tired, and we'd just like to curl up and go to sleep.
