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- ig! v 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. , iiffy , ,M, 1 ,, 8262 " wb S2 ala ygf Wig 5521?

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. Page 5 'UN Nr Page 6 Principal Merlin Menagh Superintendent Gail L. Sims 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 school policy. 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. Jw. Q22' School Board Supt, G, L. Sims, D. Hudson, R. Blatter, G. Karges, L. Sherwood, R. Flotree, R, Medlin B Holmes 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. Assisting otlice secretary Dorothy Petersen with routine duties are Glenys Larson, Patsy Warner and Sandy Miller. 'D X Q3-, ,, v Jjfj , ' Q NMMA!

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.

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 5 Page 10 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. 3--i .1--cy l it-as.
