Autographs FOIQEWOIQD 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. DEDICATIG 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 2 X I I I 1943 THE WHIRLWIND 9 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. E.

A 2 UpQPlnlQfl Qnl 5 essoqe ' 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.

CLASS FLOWERS White Rose and Larkspur CLASS COLORS Royal Blue and White eniov Class islovq 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 Talbott. To represent our knowledge, sixteen seniors became members of the National Honor Society. 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.', I4 TH Todd Wordehof f Senders E WHIRLWIND 1943 V., WWE Fortier Christoff Govro D.

M i Blanchard Kennel Stanford Schlegel Tycer Sophomore islovq 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 g g P 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. 40 THE WHIRLWIND I9 Agee, Ambrosek, Ammon, Arnold, Ahart, Cox, Cutts Aylward, Alexander, Baldwin, Banks, Beatty, Ellison, Erb Bidwell, Boesel, Blanchard, Bostrack, Bowman, L.

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. E WHIRLWIND I9 HONOR SOCIETY LITERARY EXPLORERS SECRETARIAL CLUB 1943 THE WAHIRLWIND 47 NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The Takenah Chapter of the National Honor Society was introduced to the Albany High School in 1933. The members are chosen by a class and a faculty vote. Each member must excel in character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Each year the Honor Society gives a prize to a senior who has been chosen by the faculty committee for showing the most progress in scholarship. A movie sponsored by the organization netted about fifty dollars. An all-school formal prom was sponsored on April 9. The fall initiation was held on November eighth, and the spring initiation on May fourth. The annual banquet was sponsored on May seventh. The fall semester officers were Wilbur Senders, president, Larry Larsen, vice-president: Eileen Fisher, secretary and treasurer, and Bill Fisher, sergeant-at-arms. Officers for the spring semester were Jane Luther, president, Howard Weddle, vice-president, Kathryn Greene, secre- tary and treasurer, and Jack Talbott, sergeant-at-arms. Miss Anderson is the adviser. First Row: Talbott, E. Fisher, Weddle, Luther, Senders Second Row: Anderson, Fortier, French, Howard, Morgan, Greene Third Row: B. Fisher, Banks, Brunson, Grenz, Swatzka 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 Stauble, president, Marian Hill, vice-presidentg Wilbur Senders, secretary-treasurerg and Bernadine Yagen, sergeant-at-arms. Standing: Morgan, Luther, Hill, Chase, Senders, Byers Kneeling: Stauble, Howard, Gronso, Pharis, Yagen SECRETARIAL CLUB The Secretarial Club, which is a service club, was organized in the latter part of February. Its membership is made up of advanced students. Although the club was not organized until late in the year, the members have been busy performing the services for which the club exists. Meetings were held every other Wednesday noon, and a social meeting was planned for every month. The following officers were elected for the year: Joanne Swander, president, Carol Weigel, vice-president: Irene Peacock, treasurer, Gerry Jensen, secretaryg Ruth Morgan, musician, and Miss Voyen, director.

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. 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 following are the names of the Livewires elected in the roll rooms at the beginning of the school term: L Elinor Childs 4, Bob Keller 8, LeRoy Seavy 10, Rodney Russell 101, Pete Henshaw 102, Mary Faulkner 107, Charlie Thompson, boys' gym, Pat Alexander, girls' gym, Jack Radford 109, Stuart Gourley 110, Lena Perfect 200, Dave Hamouris 201, Joe Ann Libby 203, Ed Tempel 206, Mary Hulbert 207, Duane Fisher 208, and Marian Haley 209.

John Gale Swatzka was elected president, Dorothy Shultz, vice-president, Harriet Snyder, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Tracy, adviser. The activities sponsored by the Latin club this year were of the patriotic nature, as the club has participated in several different victory projects. Among the projects were comic booklets for the men in service at Camp Adair, silk goods for parachutes, and books for the service camps. .

Fisher, Swatzka LIBRARY CLUB The Library Club consists this year of a group of students who have volunteered their service to assist Mrs. Childs with the library work. At the club's monthly meetings, the students have the opportunity to obtain a better understanding of the management and organization of the library. The activities in the library are the repairing of books, checking books in and out, keeping the library in order, and' doing the many things that must be done in order to have a well- organized library. The students feel that they are benefited by their work because it gives them the experience that will help them in doing research in libraries, whether in college or not. They 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.

Luper. From the sixty-five members, Carlton Eastburn was chosen president, Ruth Morgan, vice-president, Doris Cox, secretary-treasurerg Jean Bloom, roll secre- taryg David Campbell, librarian, and Mr. Luper, adviser. The activities vary from playing at football and basketball games to weekly radio broad- casts from the high school auditorium. On March 19th a concert was given by the band after which the Lebanon band was entertaining at a party. Seventy-five band members have been inducted into the armed forces. The drum major, Hal Brunson, left for the service on the first of March. Because of war conditions a contest was not given this year. However, very high ratings were received in previous years.

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 respective fields. For this class work and trade training received on the job, they receive regular high school credit which enables them to graduate and to go to college if they so desire.

With the aid of selected high school girls, the cafeteria has served from sixty-five to seventy students and teachers with a daily noon lunch. The selection of food includes a hot dish, a salad, a dessert, and a beverage. The cafeteria has been managed for the convenience and the welfare of the student body on non-profit basis.

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. ASSOCIATED TREASURERS 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.

"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. Principals: Roth, Stauble, Taucher, Scott, Muller, Hopkins, Haas, Velkinburg S GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, accompanied by Betty French, consists of thirty members. This group combined their talent with the chorus in the major musical events of the season. Small groups of the glee club have entertained for school and various civic groups. The operetta was presented February 5, and the Christmas program was on December 18. First Row: Hulbert, Bassett, French, V.

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. Miss Edith Calavan directed the play, and the cast consisted of Wilbur Senders as Johnny Clover, Don Williams, Spud Erwin, Betty French, Susan Blake, Mary Faulkner, Betsy Erwing Donna Cook, Lucybelle Leeg Bill Fisher, Henry Quinn, Phyllis Vollstedt, Martha Willard, Pearl Marie Tigner, Mrs. Clover, Kenny Cowgill, Mr. Clover, Bob West, Oflicer "Cappy" Simmons, Art Duntsch, Preston Hughes, and the football players, Bill Yokum, Joe Taucher, and Philip Talbott. Shirley Traylor, ably assisted by Lois Fuller, had charge of all properties.

There are approximately forty active members in the organization who took part in one or more of its many activities during the school months. The president of the Dramatics Club is Betty French, with Eileen Fisher acting as vice- president, and Philip Talbott as secretary-treasurer. On Friday evening, December 4, the club presented a three-act comedy in the auditorium entitled "Ever Since Eve." A picture and a description of the play are given on another page. A radio skit was given on one of the Tuesday afternoon broadcasts from Albany High School and a one-act patriotic play, "Message From Bataanf' was presented at the assembly in honor of Washington's birthday.

Later in the year they were joined by Cecil Jenkins, who proved to be an extremely peppy addition to the forces. At many pep assemblies throughout the year these four leaders instilled the old fighting spirit into the team and the yelling spirit into the student body. They introduced several new yells.

The Albany chapter consists of ten members who qualified for the organization by being active in journalism, keeping up a satisfactory scholastic standing, and being recommended to the executive secretary by the adviser. For the first half of the year Beverly Gronso was president of the group, Betty French, vice-presidentg and Virginia Hall, secretary-treasurer, while for the second half Maryan Howard took the office of president, Margaret Baylis, vice-president, Virginia Hall, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Penland is adviser. PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION The Senior High School Parent Teacher Association met each month at the high school on the second Tuesday at 7:45 p. m. The motto for the year was to "Make New Friendships and Strengthen Old Ones." The officers for the year of 1942-43 were as follows: Mrs. Dan B. Roth, presidentg Mrs. Frank Zarones, vice-president, Mrs. T. G. Cowgill, second vice-presidentg Mrs. Joel Thompson, secretary, Mrs. Hazel Ewing, treasurer, Mrs. E. C. Fisher, hospitality, Mrs. Albert Senders and Mrs. James Lytle, membership, Mrs. William Hobbs and Mrs. Cleo Jenkins, defense chairmen' Mrs. Otto Lance, publications, Mrs. Cliff Knodell, publicity, Mrs. J. O. Arthur, historian. 7 The programs, which were varied during the year, included a tour of the high school, speakers from O. S. C., dinners, and nutrition programs. The project this year sponsored several dancing parties for the students. One was held at Hallowe'en, one in December, and one in March. We also contributed towards the student loan fund. During the year we assisted on the gas, fuel, and food rationing program. Quite a number also helped on the bond and stamp sales and promoted the Red Cross Drive. The P. T. A. feels that its success during the year depended a great deal on the whole- hearted cooperation of the principal, Mr. Hudson, who assisted helpfully at all times. In March our membership was 134, with more new members being constantly added all the time. STAGE CREW The stage crew is also known as the production class. It is a school service organization. The members set up the scenery and operate the curtains and lights for all stage productions, such as operettas, plays, assemblies. They operate the motion picture projecters, both in the classrooms and in the auditorium. The stage crew boys accomplish other things, too. They make furniture and other woodwork for the school and take care of various tasks that actually require the services of a handy-man. These boys deserve much praise for their contribution to the success of many school ventures. 1943 THE WHIRLWIND 67 Left to Right: Bill Fisher, Kelly, Hudson, Tigner, Zarones Betty Fisher, Blanchard, Fortier STUDENT COUNCIL The student council this year has been very active in planning the annual carnival ar- Y ranging and scheduling all school programs and functions, nominating student body officers h . . . . . . 7 aving charge of all school elections, and supervising affairs regarding school clubs and activities. This group is composed of the class representatives: Howard Weddle, seniorg Pearl Marie Tigner, junior, Eugene Zarones, sophomore, Mr. Hudson, principalg Bill Fisher, president of the student body, and the student body officers. STUDENT BODY ASSOCIATION Any regularly enrolled student of Albany High School who pays his dues at the beginning of the year belongs to the Albany High School Student Body Association. Any students thus enrolled may take part in any elections, or they may voice their opinions on any matter of school importance. They are also entitled to take part in school activities or to attend any student body assemblies. The four students who have been chosen by their fellow classmates to pilot the plane of Albany High School's 1942-43 student body are the following: Bill Fisher, president, Bud Fortier, vice-president, Doris Kelly, secretary, and Betty Fisher, treasurer. The student body president, Bill Fisher, presides at all meetings and assemblies. 68 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 Left to Right: Swatzka, Fisher, Kelty, Weddle, Radford, Senders, Cooley, Lawrence JUNIOR ROTARIANS Junior Rotarians are boys chosen by the faculty to represent the Albany High School at Rotary. Each boy became a member of the club and was present at four of the regular meetings of the businessmen's service club, where he made weelcly reports on the activities of the school. . . . . h These boys had the opportunity of getting acquainted with the constructive activities and t e lasting benefits of Rotary International. The members of Rotary gave the boys this unusual chance to observe the workings of an international club devoted to the ideals of service to humanity. The Junior Rotarians as well as the entire ig sc oo wis this opportunity. The Junior Rotarians are Bill Fisher, Bob Kelty, Jack Radford, Howard Weddle, Gordon Cooley, Wilbur Senders, Gale Swatzlca, and Bobby Lawrence. h' h h l ' h to thank the Rotary Club for 1943 THE WHIRLWIND 69 SPORTDANCES The P. T. A. has been grand to the students of Albany High school along the line of sponsoring school dances. The students greatly appreciated this effort. On October 30 the P. T. A. sponsored the most successful project of the year. The dance was held in the gym after the Milwaukie-Albany football game, with a record-breaking number of students attending. The music was furnished by a nickelodeon. The dance was presented by the P. T. A. in December, with music by the high school nickelodeon. The records for these affairs were furnished by the students and the school. Again on March 5, the P. T. A. gave a sport dance in the high school gym. This was a huge success. Noon dances under the auspices of the high school were presented every Wednesday. These took place during the noon hour, and different students were in charge each week. DEBATE CLUB The Debate Club's activities this year were somewhat limited, owing to transportation difficulties. Nevertheless, the team managed to participate in one debate tournament. It was the State District Contest held at Linfield College in McMinnville on March 20. Members of the group this year were Cecil Jenkins, junior, manager, Margaret Baylis, junior, secretary-treasurer, Jack Talbott, seniorg John Gale Swatzka, seniorg Johnnie Reuland, juniorg and Bernard Byers, sophomore. JERRY'S JIVERS That new dance band of Albany High School, 'lJerry's Jivers," besides playing for high school assemblies, has been presenting dances every Saturday night in the Memorial Hall. These are given for the benefit of high school students. Jerry Larsen is the leader, manager, and owner of the band. The other members are as follows: Bob Lawrence, pianog Bill Fisher, first trumpet, Don Bilyeu, second trumpet, Eugene Zarones, bass violg Wilbur Senders, clarinetg Jim Crocker, saxophoneg and Jerry Larsen, drums. The featured singer with the band is Betty Slocum. 70 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 ci P clivilies SCRAP DRIVE If a casual stranger had visited Albany High School one day last October, he would have thought that there was nothing to do but win the war by collecting scrap. One glance at the feverish activity indicated that the students were really upitchin' in" to win the war in their own way. School was abandoned for the day, while the students rode around in trucks and canvassed the town and the surrounding country for old scrap metal. They did fine work, for the metal totaled over five hundred tons for the whole school. The student body sponsored an interclass competition with a trophy as the prize for the class which collected the most scrap. The seniors won the contest by turning in a total of 154 tons. BEET PULLERS Even though the frost was heavy and the wind was cold, the Albany High School students and teachers worked side by side in the fields, helping the farmers harvest their crops. Since the farm help shortage was acute this year, the school was dismissed on November 6, and every- one went out to harvest the Ammon Brothers' beet crop. The money made from this united effort helped finance the Whirlwind Annual. WARTIME DRIVES Most of the drives this year have been put on by the Seventeen girls with Miss Spence in charge. This group has collected and made such things for Camp Adair as funny books, scrap books, fifteen pairs of slippers that the girls made, two hundred hangars, posters for Camp Adair, one hundred tray favors, three hundred nut cups for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and thirty jig-saw puzzles. They also contributed one hundred games, besides making a collection of gourds, shells, and old jewelry. The boys at Camp Adair have appreciated all of these drives. . . . ,, x - L1 1. -' ' 1 , V , p 5 'rf . 41.

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 a lot. 1 l l A 72 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 First Row: Kelly, Taucher, Byers, Spencer, A.

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 FOOTBALL-Continued 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 fContinued on page 79, 74 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 Left to Right: Coach Buchanan, Allard, Ohling, Kelty, Long, Churchill, Wordehoff, Simons, Koos, Fortier Qskeilmll 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. Albany Jefferson Albany O. S. C.

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. Ohling. 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. H evo-Alhleles 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. 76 THE WHIRLWIND 'I9 , .

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.

Tennis, golf, and wrestling have been recently added. The Order of "A" takes charge of the annual carnival parade and the kangeroo court each year. The Order of "A" has always been one of the most active organizations in school. 78 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 First Row: Merrill, Brunson, Fortier, Cooley Second Row: Grenz, Weddle, Russell, Peterson, Marsack nlvclmum clslfelboll Champions The 1943 high school intramural basketball program led the most successful season this year ever witnessed. Since both leagues were bubbling with talent, it pro- duced several closely contested battles for their respective titles. 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- ship. 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. nlvclmuvcl eview 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 ous, Alhlelics 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. -R. L. Buchanan oolbcJll""Conlinue 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. THE WHIRLWIND 'I9 Steel Cosler Banks Luther Morgan 1943 THE WHIRLWIND 8l 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 N . , GlPlS OUOP AWGPJS 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 senior years. 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. 82 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 TOP PICTURE First Row: Gronso, French, McClellan, Gutierrez, Luther, Banks, Kelly, Bird, Scofield, Jensen, Cosler, Swander Morgan, Tobey, Agee, Hill, Haas Second Row: Govro, P.

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. Ga.QIS'AiI1IQhC clivilies 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 program. 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 Mabel Kelty. 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.

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 enemy territory. 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. nSCl'lOOl CIITCQS 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. 88 THE WHIRLWIND 1943 COlTlfTIQl'lCQlTlQl'Il Processional - "Marche Pontificaleu -------- Gounod A. H. S.

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. SJ -Zo 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 WCJI1 Onq 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 he did. 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 indeed. 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. - The Editor 92 SEARS ROEBUCK 86 CO.
