To the long-suffering but ever patient parents of the Senior Class this annual is dedicated.
We realize that this is a small token and is just a small expression of our gratitude. Under-
stand please, that we are not trying to repay the fathers and mothers, only attempting to
give credit where credit is due. i
To the Moms and Dads of the Class of '452" we say, L'Thanks for everything and most of
all for just being you."

Rusty Rex, our beloved high school mascot, was killed in the late fall of 1951. Rusty, owned
by Wade and Bun Doerfler, met his end when he tangled with a milk truck. He died after
suffering from a cerebral hemorrhage. 1
All of the fellows on the team and the rooters remember Busty for his friendly spirit.
He faithfully attended all the games and never once let the team down.
Everyone was grieved by his passing and we all extend our sympathy to those who were

The voice of the Albany High School Student Body is its Student Council. This
group, composed of class presidents, representatiyes and Student Body officers,
was maintained to help iron out most of the difficulties regarding school activities.
This year the student council worked on an amendment to the constitution
pertaining to changing the name of the VVhirlvvind Paper.
The Student Body officers for this year have led most successfully the student
in a program of activities and scholastic accomplishments.

In the fall of '49 the great and ever to be remem-
bered Class of '52 entered Albany High with a
burst of enthusiasm and determination.
During their sophomore year the class made
history. With Jerome Kenagy, as president, they,
for the first time in many years, presented a class
play. In the spring "J une Mad" was staged with
overwhelming success. This year the '52ers took
second place in the class acts when "Spookie
Woogie" was used as a theme.
The year closed and everyone was aware that
the class under the guidance of Mr. Stan Czech
and Miss Wilma Spence had set a high mark for
all following sophomore classes to strive for.
The election of Bill Parrett and the replace-
ment of Miss Spence, who remained as an Hon-
orary Adviser, by Miss Burris launched the J un-
iors in '50-'51. The popular stage play, "Cheaper
by the Dozen," was reproduced by the Class of
'52 as a feature of the year. The success of this
venture won another feather in the cap of the
Class of '52,
"High Barbaree on a Southern Sea" was the
theme used for the class acts in the spring of '51,
This colorful spectacle captured second place,
shattering the old tradition of juniors taking
"Undercurrent," the title of the 1951 Junior-
Senior prom, prevailed as a lasting tribute to the
graduating Class of '51,
With a flare of class spirit and the will to suc-
ceed the Class of '52 entered its senior year. With
the ambition to make their last year their most
successful the seniors elected Dick Forster to rule
Another Hollywood hit, 4'Father of the Bride,"
was the play presented by the class. Its three-day
performance totaled a record-breaking attend-
ance and receipts for a class play.
The Christmas prom, "Sno-Ball," was the
highlight of the winter social session. This event
brought much praise and acclaim to the people
who were directly responsible for the prom and
the sponsoring Class of '52.
The spring carnival of '52 provided an oppor-
tunity for the seniors to display their talent and
ability to produce, direct, and present an original
show of their own. Without any doubt the seniors
can be credited with setting the stage with a bril-
liant and sparkling production packed with grade
Senior Skip Week was enjoyed by all and fur-
nished a memory for every member of the class.
The class graduated with high honors and a
superb record. The '52ers did not leave their class
spirit behind at graduation time, rather this
spirit was infused into each soul making every
individual a better world citizen.

JU 1012 CLASS
Janet Johnston, Secretory, James Pound, Representative, Nancy Neuschwonder, Treosurerg Ernie Emith, President, Delores Shortridge
Representative: .luck Weiss, Representative, and Mary Jenks, Vice-President.
Adding a second successful year to their fine rec-
ord at Albany High, the Class of "53" began Well
by electing Ernie Smith their leader. He was ably
assisted by Vice-President Mary Jenks, Secre-
tary Janet Johnston, Treasurer Nancy Neusch-
Wander. They were represented in the Student
Council by James Pound, Delores Shortridge and
The first activity of a busy year was the Wit-
nessing of the Sophomore Initiation which we
remembered only too clearly. Juniors also con-
tributed many baskets of food for the needy, and
placed first in the clothing drive at Christmas
At the "Queen of Hearts" dance the Juniors
Were represented by Claris Poppert and Carol
Canida. The class contributed all their pennies
and dimes to the March of Dimes contest.
"Ready Made Family," the class play, was
well received by audiences two nights in March.
Much credit was due to the director, Mrs. Zim-
mer, and the leads.
During the sports seasons the class sponsored
three successful after-game dances. Their Febru-
ary assembly vvas also a success and proved that
the talent in "53's" class was diversified.
The Juniors Worked willingly and energeti-
cally to produce an original class act. The tradi-
tional J unior-Senior Prom, which was their last
activity for the school year vvas a fitting tribute
to their arch enemies and friends, Class of 'L52".
The final farewells to the Seniors were recited
at Baccalaureate and Graduation, for vvhichnthe
Juniors traditionally decorated the stage.

After registering and getting acquainted the class
of "541" got started under the guidance of Mrs.
Kelly and Mr. Perry, class advisors.
To help through "51" and "52" the class elect-
ed able bodied Frankie Burford as president. The
other officers who cooperated splendidly in assist-
ing Frankie in the multifarious tasks which al-
ways face the incoming sophomores, were vice-
president, Barbara F aulknerg secretary, Janet
McDonald5 treasurer, Carlene Newport, and
class representatives, Myrna Ridenour, Ardys
Widmer and JoAnn Martin.
Sophomore initiation started with the sopho-
mores coming to school every day for a week
attired in various unusual and uncomfortable
costumes. uTorture" week terminated with an
assembly in which the sophomores, with the aid
of a few helpful and highly imaginative senior
Hi-Y members, provided most of the entertain-
The class of "54"' put up a good fight in the
clothing driye even if third was awarded to them.
With class spirit rising higher, the 549s sponsored
two after-basketball-game dances. Carlene New-
port and Bill Johnson were elected the class can-
didates for King and Queen of Hearts.
Although the Writing, directing and producing
of a class act was an art highly unfamiliar to the
sophomores, the class presented an act, that they
were rightfully proud of.

The bank personnel is composed of the student body treasurer and her assistants. These assist-
ants are either experienced seniors or juniors who are doing in service training this year. These
girls man the store in the main hall and also keep the books for the school system. These girls not
only render a very important service but they also have received a good deal of practical training.
The students certainly ovve these girls a great big thank you for helping get the necessary school
bookkeeping done. A

Debate, although not widely publicized, is one of
the most. active and hard-working organizations
in Albany High. .
Debate this year has taken part in many tour-
naments, among these were Pacific University
tournament, Linfield College tournament, Wil-
lamette University tournament, and the Oregon
High School State Debate tournament. All mem-
bers of the squad took part in these tournaments.
A selected squad also went to the Pacific Coast
Tournament at Gonzaga University in Spokane,
Washington. Those participating were Patsy
Covey, lVIarilyn Chandler, Paul Cleaver, Charles
Reynolds, Wilmer Boesel, Kent Parsons, and
advisor Mr. Rogers.
The members of the squad, besides debating
this year's question, resolved that all American
citizens should be subject to conscription for
essential services in time of war, took part in
many other varied activities, such as extempora-
neous speaking, impromptu speaking, interpre-
tive reading, radio announcing, oratory, and stu-
dent congress. .
Debate raised their own expense money
through the sale of football programs and ads,

Seventeen is composed of seventeen girls who sewe as the
council for the Girls' Federation. These girls are elected
by the other girls in the student body. The group is com-
posed of ten seniors and seven juniors. This year's officers
were: President, Alice Kroppg Vice President, Kay Isomg
Secretary, Lois Smithg Treasurer, Betty Bates, and Chap-
lain, Kathryn Phillips.
The Seventeen girls attend church in a body once a
month. They alternate and in this way are present at the
church of most of the members at least once during the
Another activity sponsored by the Seventeen is the an-
nual Big Sister Party that is held each fall to welcome the
sophomores to Albany High. The girls provide entertain-
ment and refreshments and make sure that each new soph-
omore meets as many upper classmen as possible.
The Seventeen's biggest activity of the year is the Queen
of Hearts contest and dance. Each year the Seventeen
picks a boy and girl' from each class to run for King and
Queen' of Hearts. The members of the different classes are
then urged to buy votes for a penny apiece. The money
gained in this way is divided between the Girls' Federation
and the March of Dimes fund.
This year's proceed's grand total was well over 3250.
The council this year took over the task of being foster big
sisters to a girl in Denmark. They sent clothing and other
gifts periodically to brighten up the life of a war victim
less fortunate than themselves.
Seventeen continued its policy of presenting a rotating
bracelet to the girl whose service they felt was outstanding
during a particular month.
Seventeen wound up a very active year with annual
"17"-Hi-Y breakfast on the morning of the carnival parade.
This was held in the school cafeteria and attended by the
old and new members of both organizations and the car-
While Seventeen is the most active service club in the
school it is to be remembered that none df their work would
be possible without the support of their advisor, Miss
Spence, and the rest of the girls in school.

A number of high school youths are interested in
and in need of securing employment training in
the industrial and business fields, looking toward
full-time employment following high school
graduation. If a local community is to satisfy the
needs of such students, then vocational education
for initial employment should be made available.
One method for providing such instruction is
through the Part-Time Co-operative D. O. Pro-
gram. C D. O.-Diversified Occupationsj. This
program is unique in that the school utilizes the
training facilities and personnel of local busi-
nessesg employers utilize the school's facilities
for training employees at no extra cost to them.
The basic objective of the Part-Time Co-opera-
tive Program is to prepare high school boys and
girls for useful employment in occupations of
their choice. Students acquire practical work ex-
perience through part-time supervised legal em-
ployment that provides systematic training un-
der actual job conditions. The school provides
instruction in the technical and related informa-
tion pertaining to the student's job in a specially
scheduled class. In addition, students take such
additional regular school subjects as are neces-
sary for high school graduation.

1951 and 1952 MC's
We would like to thank Don MacDonald, Jerome
Kenagy, Skip Wiseman, Bob Andrews and Bill
Sim for the swell job they did as lVI.C.'s for our
high school and national assemblies. In past
years two lVl.C.'s have been chosen out of several
boys who at one time or another M.C.'d for an
assembly. However, this year we have had sev-
,eral different boys to NLC., and they all have
done a wonderful job. We would also like to give
credit to those boys who lVl.C.'d for their own
clubs, but whose names we didn't receive. Let's
M.C.'s for the school year of 1951 and'1952.
The above picture was taken of Mr. Kraft, the
Dean of Music at the University of Oregon, en-
tertaining us with his own unique style of music.
This is just one of the several national and higher
education assemblies that we have had the pleas-
ure to enjoy this year.
However, these are not the only assemblies
that should be acknowledged. There are our own
high school assemblies put on by the three classes
and a great many of the organizations of Albany
Senior High. These people that have worked on
our school assemblies deserve a lot of thanks and
credit for the swell programs they have presented
to the faculty and student body.

QUEEN BETTY III
The 1952 carnival, "Leap Year Frolic," was ruled over by petite Betty Bates, five-feet-two-eyes
of-blue miss who hails from Philadelphia and Georgia. Betty is an active member of The National

Noon - Parade
Afternoon-Baseball Game, Albany vs. Salem

The carnival was a superior production from the coronation program and parade floats to all three
class acts. Miss Virginia Harper, advisor, Larry Mishler and Bob Decker, co-chairmen, and Kay
Isom, secretary, along with all of the sub-committees should be congratulated on the success of
the "Leap Year Frolic".
Rue LaChunce, Mistress of Ceremoniesg Queen Betty Bdiesg Princesses: Alta Sioblom, Joan LuChcnce, Donna Slcvens, Nancy Neuschwander
Carol Canida, Janet McDonald, and Diane Jones!
Queen Betty's Court was composed of two senior
princesses, three junior princesses, and three
Princess Alta Sjoblom was a familiar member
of the court when she was dubbed for the third
time this year. Blonde, slender, blue eyed, and
very active in many school affairs, she was a very
popular choice for princess.
Amid tears and shrieks of joy, Princess Joan
LaChance was dubbed as the other senior mem-
ber of the court. One of the most popular girls in
Senior class, Joan was yell queen this past year.
Another repeat from last year's court was tiny
Donna Slavens, who is also amember of the rally
squad. Donna's main interests are the Junior
class and dancing. She is a pretty little blonde
with blue-grey eyes. Tall, dark, stately Nancy
Neuschwander was the second Junior Princess.
Nancy is one of the working girls who also finds
time to be an active memberiof Booster Club and
Auburn-haired, blue-eyed Carol Canida was
the last Junior Princess. She is one of those busy
little people who is always doing something for
someone else. Carol is also a member of Booster
Club and "17". f
Talented Janet McDonald was one of the soph-
omore choices for princess. Anyone in AHS
knows of the many achievements of this dark-
eyed, brown-haired young miss.
Red-haired, blue-eyed Diane Jones was anoth-
er of the cute little "sophy', gals to grace the court
of "52". An active member of 4--H, G.A.A., and
the annual staff, Diane was a very good choice.
Unable to be present at the dubbing because
of illness, Sophomore Princess Carlene Newport
recovered in time for carnival events. A slim
little brownette with light brown eyes, Carlene
completed the court in amost delightful manner.

coach of the rlivision's football team.
After his separation from the service,
Mr. Czech continued his education at
Oregon State College, and served as
line coach of the Rooks in 19417.
He came to Albany in 194-8 as in-
structor of social economics and assist-
ant football coach. Last year Mr. Czech
was elected to fill the position of dean
of boys, instructor of social economics
and head football mentor. During the
school year, 1951-1952, he has been
vice-principal, instructor of social eco-
nomics, head coach, and senior class
Mr. Czech lives at 1089 West 16th
with his charming wife, Ora Lea, and
a four-year-old daughter, Sally.
Claiming Benson of Portland for a high
school alma mater is A1bany's popular
football scout, Tom Drynan. It is his
duty to "spy" on the forthcoming oppo-
sition and report fheif strategy to the
coaches. This information, of course,
plays a great part in whether or not
Albany will win their next encounter.
Following his years at Benson, Mr.
Drynan attended O. S. C. Here he stud-
ied physical education and participated
in football and track.
He first taught at Salem, Oregon, for
fifteen years and then accepted a posi-
tion in Albany with the Bulldogs.
Mr. Drynan is an all - important
member of the faculty, for, besides his
duties in the health classroom, he is
director of athletics, an almost full-
time job. He is responsible for the ath-
letic equipment, the selling of tickets
at athletic events, and the financing of
the various school sports. "Terrible
Tom" also coaches crosscountry, track,
assists with football, and instructs the

The California member of the coach-
ing staff is Backiield Coach Andy
Knudsen, a graduate of Eureka High
in Eureka, California. Having received
a basketball scholarship to that institu-
tion, Mr. Knudsen started to college at
Oregon State College in Corvallis, Ore-
gon. He was a student in the physical
education department. Mr. Knudsen,
however, did not use his scholarship
for basketball, but he found time to
play football. To prove this he has one
of the "Orange O" rings that are pre-
sented each year to the senior members
of the O. S.C. grid team. He a1so,has
many stories to tell his American his-
tory classes about team trips to such
interesting places as Hawaii.
After graduation from college, Andy
came to Albany as assistant football
coach in charge of the backfield. This
year's backfield proved the excellence
of his ability. This part of the squad
held up their end of the team's duties,
although they were plagued by in-
juries. Besides these duties Mr. Knud-
sen also coaches "B" basketball and is
director of the interrnurals. He took on
the position of adviser to the Associated
Bulldogs, an organization of all the
boys in school.
Mr. Knudsen resides in Albany with

developing the younger talent who will
some day fill the shoes and uniforms of

games "Chuck" sits in the crows' nest

plays of the other team as well as ad-

Having completed his secondary ed-

the marines during the second World
Upon his discharge he entered Ore-
gon State, enrolling in the physical ed-
ucation department. While in college,
Mr. Kerr was an active member of
Ralph Coleman's baseball squad.
Halsey High had the good fortune to
get Mr.'Kerr as a coach following his
graduation. He remained in Halsey for
two years and coached all sports.
Mr. Kerr came to Albany to fill a
vacancy left when Mr. Hunsaker ad-
vanced to OTI. This position was as
baseball coach. In addition to this duty

The Albany High Bulldogs' football team of 1951 had a
good season. They won five of their eight games and many
of the lossesvwere by a very small margin, usually less
than seven points.
The Bulldog air attack was better than usual with Par-
rett, Gatlin and Babcock doing the heaving, and Strunk,
Stamps and Hall doing the receiving. This combined with
an exceptional ability to intercept passes won much yard-
age for Albany and, in some cases such as Eugene, resulted
Albany's ground game specialized in speed and drive.
With Babcock and Strunk through the middle and over the
line the drive was most apparent. Doy Gatlin provided
much of the speed but all of the fans and rooters will re-
member Larry Larios as one of the scrappiest little men
to ever carry the pigskin for old A. H. S. However, the
coaching staff is, undoubtedly, looking for great things
from Doy next year, since he is one of the returning backs.
It is well to remember that no backfield, however good,
can succeed without a good' line. While Albany's line

lacked the size it has known in previous years, it was one
of the hardest driving and hitting outfits in the state. Many
an opposing back has wondered, "what hit me?" after
being thrown to the ground, none too gently, by Sanot,
Scott, Doerfler, Haight, Webb or Montgomery, and woe
be to him that was unfortunate enough to be greeted by
this complete aggregation upon his entrance into Blue and
The line was somewhat impaired by injury, the most
noteworthy being the broken arm Ed Clark suffered in the
Lebanon game. Although Ed wore his cast throughout the
entire remaining football season, he was able to resume his
duty as extra point booter-plaster of paris and all. Johnny
Wilbur and Jim Harrison did an admirable job of filling
Ed's shoes at the center spot in the line. -' ,
Although the Bulldogs did not go to the state playoff
this year, the adult supporters of which there were many,
and the students were very well pleased with Coach
Czech's boys and the showing they made.

with 320 points followed by Eugene Kutsch with 306
points, a Captain Dick Forster with 24-7 points.

t. In Big Six play Albany was in a three-way tie for
ird place with Bend and Springfield.
In the previous two years Albany won only three basket-
ball games while losing all the rest. This year they have
taken a big step. During the season they beat many of the
teams that went to the state tournament. They have a
15-8 win and loss record.

One of the highlights of the season was Albany's over-
time defeat of Springfield. This was made possible by a
free shot by Tom Dorsing in the last seconds of the game.
Albany went on in that overtime to win by a nice margin.
Another peak of excitement was Don Brennenman's 34-
points during the Bend-Albany game. This was the most
points scored by a single player in one game. i

The wrestling team, under Mr. Drynan, has done
very well this year considering the competition
they were up against. They compiled a win over
the tough Lebanon squad and then lost to them
in the second match by a very close margin.
In Big Six this year, Albany came in a close
second to the mighty Salem squad. Five of our
men placed as first and many others placed on
In the, district meet, our boys came in third
behind Salem and Lebanon. Big Bill Scott had
Albany's only first place and Don Reeves, Jim
Kerr, John Newton and Sherman Grate all had
All of the Albany grapplers who placed first,
second, third or fourth in the district journeyed
to Corvallis for the state meet. Don Reeves was
the only man to place. He grunted and growled
his way to a third in state which is very good con-
sidering that he is just a Junior.
All in all Albany's squad and Mr. Drynan are
to be congratulated on their achievement.

Coach Kerr came to Albany from up the river, from Halsey
that is. He received his training in baseball from the aca-
demic standpoint at Oregon State College in Corvallis.
VVhile in college he played baseball under the versatile
Ralph Coleman. Coach 'Kerr also served in the Marines
for a period of time and while in the service he also man-
aged to play occasionally. All in all he came to Albany a
very experienced and capable coach.
Albany High fielded a very strong baseball team for the
1951-1952 school year, with the possible exception of the
pitching staff which lacked experience and a strong leader.
However, the pitchers probably had more of a will to win
than any other group on the team and they literally threw
their hearts out.
The opening games with Grant of Portland, last year's
state champs, were a good example of the spirit of the
Albany team. Although they lost the first game, the boys
came back to win the second by a 4--to-1 margin. This
would not have been possible except for the excellent pitch-
ing job by Ernie Smith.
LeRoy Babcock leaned heavy on the big stick for Albany
in that opening game and brought home the first round
trip of the year. The hickory kissed the horsehide so high,
wide, and handsome that Grant High suffered the loss of
one of the windows in the school building proper. Accord-
This was the second team that Coach Kerr has fielded at
Albany High and it had all the possibilities in the world
for making the state tournament.
As the annual goes to press Albany is just leaving the
alma mater to journey to Sweet Home for the first clash
with the Huskies. Here's wishing the coach and the boys
the best of luck and congratulations on their successes in
ing to all sources this is one of the longest hits in the his-
tory of the Grant field.
Coach Kerr has one of the scrappiest infields in the state.
The fellows had a lot of the "old fire", and they knew what
they were out there to do and how to do it. The outfielders
discharged their fly catching duties with smoothness and
accuracy. They also provided a good last stop for the few
infield errors that did occur. The interdependence of the
outfield and infield was exemplified in the boys' choice for
team captain when they picked as co-captains Infielder
Don Brennenman and Outfielder Bill Parrett, both letter-
men and valuable players as well as good sportsmen.
"Babe", besides being able to lean heavy on the bat,
saved the dy many times with his beautiful throws to sec-
ond and his immobility at the plate in case of a steal home.
The Rock of Gibraltar had nothing on him.

We know that Albany's track team should be pretty good this
year although it's hard to tell this early in the season. There are
very few lettermen back this year which makes it difficult to
predict results on past records of an individual. However, there
are a number of freshmen and sophomores coming up that look
Albany should place high in the district and Big Six meets this
year. A few of the boys are almost certain to take the trip to the
So far in the season, Bill Scott has been winning consistently
in the shotput. Bob Morris has looked very good in both high and
low hurdles, in fact he is one of the hardest men in the state to
beat. Harold Pontius, a junior, has shown a good deal of promise
as a sprinter. While the Bulldogs have eight returning lettermen,
the only returning record holders are Bob Morris, who has a rec-
ord in low hurdles and one in relay, and Dave Durr, who also
holds a recorrl in the relay.
Coach Drynan, an old track man himself, seems to always turn
out a good team regardless of the material he has. This year's
team was no exception to that old adage.

As president of G. A. A. Jane Lowell heads the list of Olive
Branchers. She was chosen for her athletic ability in all
sports and her outstanding leadership in G. A. A. Although
she is fond of all forms of exercise, Janie lists basketball as
her favorite sport. Previous to being president Janie was
sergeant-at-arms her Junior year and has always been an
active participator in athletic activities.
Margie Williamson, the second Olive Brancher, was
intramural manager this year. Margie is very active in all
sports and has proven her ability in ping pong by being
champion last year and this year. Margie has had a big job
with intramurals this year, and has done an excellent job.
Friendly Betty Stellmacher has contributed much to this
G. A. A. year as vice-president. She also worked diligently
as chairman of the annual spinster skip, which proved to
be a huge success. Betty has been very active in intra-
murals this year and chooses basketball as her favorite
sport. In her spare time Betty takes part in 4-H and also
plays in the band.
Last, but certainly not least, Arta Ohling was chosen for
her ability and leadership.. She has been active on many
committees and is always willing to help wherever she is
needed. Last year she served as basketball manager. When
Arta isn't spending her time working on the annual, of
which she is editor, she is active in Honor Society, Quill
and Scroll, Booster Club, and church activities.
The Girls' Athletic Association has been very successful
this year under the leadership and guidance of Mrs. Parent
and Mrs. Hardt. This is Mrs. Parent's second year as P. E.
teacher and G. A. A. advisor. She has been a swell friend
as well as teacher to the girls with her kind and under-
standing attitude. As well as being G. A. A. advisor, Mrs.
Parent has been kept more than busy with being Junior
class advisor and Dean of Girls. We are looking forward to
seeing this Pacific University graduate again next year.
Pert and neat, Mrs. Hardt made her first appearance in
Albany High this year as P. E. teacher. She hailed from
Lewis and Clark College in Portland where she was gradu-
ated last year. Mrs. Hardt has won the hearts of all the
students with her sparkling personality and her willing-
ness to help wherever she is needed. -
Mrs. Hardt also instructs the Girls' Modern Dance class,
which she organized this year. She also served as faculty
advisor to the Annual G. A. A. reversal dance. The Pow-
Wow. We hope to see her "around" again next year.

The Girls' Athletic Association, composed of ap-
proximately seventy-five girls is one of the most
active and spirited in the school. Besides sponsor-
ing intramural sports such as basketball, softball,
volleyball, and ping-pong. They also credit girls
who participate in sports outside of school such as
A skating, skiing, hiking, and tennis.
In order to raise money for the annual beach
party and the Spinster Skip, the girls had con-
cessions at both football and basketball games.
The beach party which was held in the spring
is an annual affair for G.A.A. members. They
traverse by school bus to some coastal point of
interest and spend the day playing and eating.
The Spinster Skip, Albany's annual reversal
ball, one of the most popular dances of the year,
created its usual flurry of date getting, corsage
making, and dance trading activities on the part
of the girls. This provides a fine finish to the year.
