There is a striking similarity between a career in Albion High School and
great stage performance.
The hum of activity in the office, classrooms, auditorium and gym is al-
, apparent. The directors, actors, stagehands and settings are all pres-
serving together as a unit. Only from the integration of these elements
a successful production result.
Overseeing the entire production is the faculty. ln the theatrical World
correspond to the directors Who help the stars to realize their potenti-
With their knowledge and experience, they see to it that the ensemble
is served by the best efforts of each individual.
For a successful production, no element approaches the importance of
the stars, the seniors. Since they made their debuts in A.H.S. four years
ago, their accomplishments have covered a wide range. Through constant
and improvement of their performances in every field, the seniors
finally obtained the success and recognition of stardom.
In every cast there are supporting players. The understudies to the lead-
ing performers are the juniors who are preparing to accept the lead next
year and to create a new standard for tomorrow.
A successful performance which involves the most careful coordination
is credited to the sophomores. Without efficient stagehands who are fast
becoming familiar with the art of production at Albion High School there
could be no stage play.
The freshmen as youthful aspirants also assume an important role on
the stage. Although they are beginning their careers by auditioning for
parts, they will display their talents in academic work and extra-curricular
activities until they finally become absorbed in the living theater.
In a short time, the curtain will fall upon the final and greatest perform-
ance of the year-graduation. At that moment, the class of '53 Will depart
forever from the stage, footlights and applause of the living theater in which
they have spent the last four years. Because they will always remain an
important part of the history of Albion High School, this edition of the
Albacard will serve future generations as a reminder of the deeds and ac-
complishments of the class of 1953. ,

In school lite we have learned to appreciate tine music which provides
beauty and emotional balance in the ordinary routine of living. To Mr. Cald-
well, who in his fourteen years of guidance has instilled in us this beauty
and self expression, we dedicate the 1953 Albacard. His high ideals, sincere
interest and faith in students of Albion High School have inspired them to
their finest efforts.

Always aiming for a better school program, Merlin Menagh,
principal of Albion High School, combines the suggestions of
students and faculty with his own ideas to build a successful
Under the supervision of Gail L. Sims, superintendent ot
schools, the Albion Public Schools can look forward to the con-
tinuance of sound basic school policies and steadily improved
methods ol instruction and learning.

The duties oi the school board members are varied and numerous. At
their regular and special meetings, they discuss problems ot school policies,
set up the budget, hire teachers and serve as custodians ot all school property.
Supervising the construction of the 5355000 grade school and auditorium
has taken innumerable hours from their own private and business lives.
Their service is great, and because they are civic minded leaders they
continue to serve the community year after year without remuneration.

Plavs and music productions demand much time
and patience on the part of the directors and all
those who assist in the Wavs ot advertising, pro-
gram making, staging and ticket selling.
Supervisors ot the Iunior-Senior banquet and
prom find their projects are made financially pos-
sible by various junior class business activities.
Baccalaureate and commencement call for spe-
cial practice and decorating.
Then, too, the teachers must share in the duties ot
ticket selling and taking at all public affairs.
All these activities provide the opportunity for a
closer relationship between students and teachers.

enlofs . . . . they distinguished themselves
Ultimately, in the last year in Albion High
School, seniors attained the peak in star per-
formances. Senior members constituted staffs
of the school paper, the Cardinal, and the year-
book, The Albacard. The seniors were the top
officers of major school organizations and
claimed the Color Day queen, 4-H queen, the
drum major, and Miss Albion. They were
hosts at the annual Newcomer party and tied
with other classes in reaching 1002 sales of
the yearbook. Senior members of school
teams helped to bring home victories and the
class play cast produced another hit. But the
climaxing feature of the year came at com-
mencement When the senior class Wearing caps
and gowns of maroon became the first to
march down the aisle of the new auditorium.

xguniors. . . . they honored themselves
As juniors, when approaching the height
of the four year run, ability in salesmanship
was recognized. All of this made possible the
memorable Iunior-Senior banquet and prom
and a generous gift to the school to be given
next year. Iuniors made the largest showing
in girls' glee and the class reached 1007, sales
of the Albacard with the other classes. By
combining their dramatic talents in a good
comedy play, furiously campaigning for "coun-
ty offices" and offering their talent and time
to school activities and organizations, they
proved they were fine supporting players to
the leading performers.

at the Newcomer Party, the first event in the
new building. Before long, the seniors, di-
rected by Glen Hilligas, were launching the
annual County Government project, with last

and Milada Dolezal and within two weeks'
time, the business staff had given Pllbion busi-
ness men an opportunity to purchase ads in
the yearbook. 9.11 classes reached 1007, in
buying Hlbacards and the staff rewarded all
with a party. During the second semester the
