' f Ciniuuzxl "No period in history is com- parable to the present. Under the stress of the greatest con- flict of all time, old systems have broken down and old ideals of social, civic and national life have passed away. A new spirit of liberty pervades the air and a new hope is cherished that some- how the ills and injustices that have embittered human life may be redressed. It is real- ized that during the past cen- tury the development of the humanitarian and spiritual aspects of life has not kept Nvffine LUNS pace with the achievements of science, and hence there is a tremendous need for a for- ward movement for the consummation in our social, national and world relationships of the spirit of the brotherhood of man. A new world must be created-broader, nobler and more hu- manitarian. It is by youth with the freshness of outlook, un- trammeled by the past, that the challenge for world betterment must be met. The rising generation alone must guide the spirit of the new democracy and create for it from the chaotic con- ditions of the present, a more enduring habitat." These words were written 23 years ago for a graduating class, but their fundamental truths still apply today, not only to the graduating class but to every student everywhere. The purpose of this Year Book is not only to serve as a reminder of our high school days, but also to show the spirit of our students, for the only standard by which our school may be judged is that SPIRIT. We shall have achieved success when we go forward, un- afraid and confident, with physical vigor, mental alertness and noble idealism. Just as those who have gone before have seized upon opportunities to bring honor to the name of their old school, so shall we advance, to use the knowledge we have gained to increase the store of human comfort and happiness. 2 J L. rinnipzrls Message The Year Book is one of the most ambitious enterprises carried out under the auspices of the Students' Council. Its publication this year bears testimony to the persistence, energy and intelligence of the committee in charge. I con- gratulate them upon their achievement. May I take this opportunity l to register my appreciation not only to the Year Book Committee but to all students and teachers who apply re- sources of time, energy and talent in the planning and exe- cution of extra-curricula ac- ' tivities. For, as Dr. Cole has aptly said, "The modern high school is a highly socialized place in which there is opportunity for boys and girls to develop their social interests." I feel sure that most students and teachers look favorably on this trend realizing that it enriches and adds variety to school life. On the other hand, the core function of the school still remains. It is to accumulate and to apply our resources of knowledge-our cultural heritageg intelligence of social relation- ships and world affairsg the findings of modern science. Keen minds, skilled hands and special training are necessary if we are to progress. Alexandra High School is fortunate in having a staff of instructors, by training and personality so Well equip- ped for the task. We are fortunate, too, in having in the student body so many who adequately value this "core function" and who utilize to the maximum the opportunity the school offers. The Principal appreciates to the full the privilege of being associated with such personnel and in such a Worthy enterprise. This sentiment is tinged with regret that so many familiar faces Will, due to graduation, be absent from these halls next year. To them, au revoir and good fortune. -J. T. Cuyler. 4 nr ll Big, n.,...l,.N.,v. ,,,. ,:,:aA-,:,W,AY , W Q 4 H ......... 'fasfzfmggef A-67 K W3-5.'YE.'3 i u Ellie Qgresihenfs gills:-sszxge Four years ago a Students' Union was accepted in A.H.S. for the purpose of allowing students to govern themselves. Its inception has stimulated the students to take an enthusiastic view of activities, which in turn has developed REAL school spirit. Since 1943, the Union has brought about major develop- ments. After a lapse of 25 years a Year Book was issued. The En Avant was re-established. Extensive war projects were completed. Evening dances were inaugurated. Distinctive A.H.S. sweaters were designed and sold. Committees and clubs, for the betterment of school life, were formed. 6 Each year the execution of the Union became easier for the governing Council. Thus no one executive can rightfully demand laurels, for its success is only the glaze on the finished product and the foundation underneath is what must withstand the wear. Not only does success depend upon the preceding Councils, but also upon the co-operation and support of the students. The high percentage of willing workers in A.H.S. certainly offsets the few grumblers, and organizations have functioned well with their help. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate those students who have done so much toward making this a gala year. To be commended are: the Drama Club, the Glee Club, the Orchestra, the E.R.O. Club, the Forum Club, for their cultural assets, the Gym Club, the T.A.M.S., the Grade Nine Club, for their encouragement, among other things, of sociability among students, the Camera Club, the Lost and Found Committee, the Publicity Committee, the Year Book staff, the En Avant staff, the Constitution Revision Committee, for their practical accomplishments, the Sports Committee, the Dance Committee, for creating student interest, the Girls' Com- mittee, the House Committee, for undertaking the less glamor- ous jobs, the members of the Council for their assistance. To the principal, Mr. Cuyler, and the teaching staff, I express the thanks of the Union for their co-operation. It has been a privilege and an honor to be president of the Students' Union. -Joyce Reesor. HAMLET'S FAMOUS FOURTH SOLILOQUY To marry, or not to marry: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The jeers and jibes of outrageous females, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by proposing, end them. To court, to marry: To be a bachelor no more, and by a marriage end The heartache and the thousand and one ills Bachelors are heir to, 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. But the dread of Something after makes us rather bear the ills We have, than fly to others that we know not of. 7 . Qlummitlee Gllqairmen COMMITTEE HEADS Bock row lleft to rightl: H. Wyers, B. Anhorn, F. McQueen, B. Lindsay, R. Burkett. Front row: N. Lutes, E. Sangster, B. Gant, M. Patterson. There were this year, as usual, a number of committees that divided up the work which goes with a Students' Union. Among them, of course, Was the ever-present Sports Com- mittee headed by Bob Lindsay. He and his helping athletes, including Doreen Herman, Isabel Herman, Joan Fisher, Barney Mitchell, Vic Bannan and Max Adkins, drew up a budget, or- ganized the year's sports activities and planned a Sports Day for June 4th. The Lost and Found Committee under Max Adkins and Bill Anhorn carried on the usual business transactions in Room 13. The Publicity Committee did some Very valuable Work this year under the leadership of Ray Burkett. With the help of Marg. Ralston, Jean Elder and Mr. Johnston, they publicized all the "doings," big and little, around the school. Ewart fPeteJ Kinvig headed the Dance Committee Which successfully held a number of dances. Judy Freedman looked after the entertainment, while Isobel Murray and Collie Chacalias 8 reigned over the sale of tickets. The ever-important food was under the direction of Max Adkins and Eddie Fitzgerald. And then the Committee that does all the work before and after the dances, that is the Decoration Committee, consisted of Garth Shaw, Hugh Beaton, Len Sharland, and Alan Wallace. That was a job well done, fellas. The Girls' Committee did some great work this year, 'thanks to Betty Gant and Eva Biel. Since the arrival of the milk machine Bill Anhorn was put in charge of the House Committee. This committee did all the dirty work around the school, such as picking up empty bottles and dusting off the crumbs left by the noon lunchers.

Some will go on to higher learning: others will go out into the world. The first big step in life has been taken. The road has seemed long and temptations have been many, but in the future we may well look back on these happy years as all too short. Some of us may attain great fame and renown in our chosen paths of life. However, no matter what our place in the world, We shall all be better citizens of our great country, for our years at Alexandra High School. At this point may I say that I hope that very few, if any, of us will succumb to the call of greater wealth and fame "south of the border." I think that it is our duty as Canadians to stay in Canada and build a country greater than that of our southern neighbors so that our children will have no wish to go to the United States. Our days at the Alexandra have been full of happiness and fun but not without their measure of work. Who can count the number of hours Rennie has poured over Latin, or Elaine over her Trig? But due to the amazing number of excuses Ray has turned out for us, most of us have had more than our share of good times. In our high school days we have seen the end of a great conflict involving all the major powers of the world. Let us hope that, with our fun, we have also acquired a hate for War and a determination to build a peace-loving and peaceful world. Many of us have gained valuable experience in extra cur- ricular activities. This knowledge in dealing with people will perhaps someday more than compensate for the low marks that have come as a result. Our Students' Union, under this year's capable executive, is at last becoming the Union which was planned by previous supporters. Let us hope it continues to grow and prosper through the coming years. May the class of '47 become more than just another picture on the Alexandra walls, a class to which our teachers may point with pride. May it become a group of successful and happy men and women and may they aways point with pride to the Alexandra High School. -Dick Taylor. 10 gilisiurg - - - Qllass nf '47 It has been said we read history through our prejudices: so, in reviewing the history of the Class of 1947, I may be prejudiced as to the relative importance of our class in the history of the A.H.S. Allowing my mind to drift back over the last four years I find many ways our class has contributed to school life. On a bright October day four years ago we came to the A.H.S., bewildered by the huge building and perplexed by the corridors, staircases, classrooms and timetables. We gazed with awe at the former grads frowning down at us from the walls. Then we were initiated. For two days the girls, with aprons on backwards, scurried along the halls with straight hair and no make-up and the boys, with shirts, sweaters and ties on backwards, wore one pant-leg rolled above the knee. Now we know why boys wear long pants! By the beginning of Grade X we felt quite superior and found ourselves running up stairs three at a time and blocking traffic in the halls gossiping. Maybe that is why some of our teachers are losing their hair. Sports Day has always been a great day, either because we liked sports or because we liked a holiday. Whatever it was Betty and Dick managed to emerge bedecked with as many ribbons as General Montgomery. Since the school choir was reorganized three years ago, our "Singing Stars of Tomorrow," Margaret and Rose Marie, have delighted us at school functions. Although the war didn't directly affect our class it did the personnel of the teaching staff. After serving in the forces they came back to the A.H.S. last year-no doubt to hear Itzy's jokes again! We hear Mr. Grant taught math in the airforce and he must have learned something, too, for in algebra just when we are flying high he gives us a test and we're grounded again. Also, a few of our teachers have left, like Mr. Elder- gone but not forgotten! The best plays ever staged at A.H.S. have been produced during our stay here-but maybe we're prejudiced because Jacquie and Dick have starred in our favorites, "Junior Miss" and "Rebecca." Last year the first drama festival was held so successfully that it was repeated this year. The "En Avant" has recorded our follies and misfortunes faithfully while we have been at the A.H.S. So faithfully, in 11 fact, that they have won the I.O.D.E. provincial prize for the best school paper in Alberta for two consecutive years. This year the "Imps" won the city basketball championshipg so Chuck, Dick and Ray will be immortalized on the halls of the A.H.S. as basketball champs. We, the Class of '47, have had' the advantages of many clubs. E.R.O., Gym, Drama and Forum are only a few of the many which have helped make our high school life an un- forgettable experience. The annual spring Red Cross Tea, con- vened by the T.A.M.S. under the capable guidance of Miss Cobb, continues to be the outstanding social event of the school. This year several improvements have been added to the school. A milk-vending machine has been installed in the base- ment-now you know why there's always a crowd around the Chem. Lab. The most important and most revolutionary event to take place since our initiation was Joyce's election as the first girl president of our Students' Union. Even though the boys have complained all year no doubt they'll do it again next year. And now we are graduates with many memories of A.H.S. The impressive ceremony last night and the fun and hilarity of tonight have been a fitting climax to our four unforgettable years at the A.H.S. -Sibyl Louise Niblock. Qllass Hrnpheng Dust is thick on the portrait in the dimly-lit hall. Vague is the printing below the faded faces. As we approach the picture we wonder what has become of these bright looking students that made the class of '47. Downton, next to Cliff Adams' taxi stand Cwhose motto is "We drive Plymouths, while pedestrians Dodge"l stands the business firm of Kundert and Odland. They began their fabu- lous careers as "Contractors Extraordinary" but, after their first building assignment, they changed the name by popular request to "Wreckers Incorporated." On the corner of the block we find Fred "Big Business" Schneider selling the even- ing issue of Labor Union lpublished by Liberal M.P. for Oliver West, Norrine Lutesj. In every field the class of '47 has prominent members. Rennie Dederer is following Roosevelt's footsteps. Every time he sits down with a group of men he demands a New Deal, then like Premier King, shuffles his cabinet. 12 Prominent in the rural World is farmer Irvin Shore, owner of the largest chick hatcheries in Western Canada. It's about time he cashed in on those eggs he's been laying. In industry, Sibyl Loume Niblock, following a Students' Council recommendation, is working for the Gruen Watch Com- pany-still keeping minutes. Art Rayner is a wealthy lumber- camp foreman-still looking after Woods. In the literary field We see the best seller, "Why I Am No Longer a Secretary," by Ida "Kathleen" Johnson and Lottie "Windsor" Zeitner, and Eddie Bach has made millions from his photographic club "Look of the Month." Don Mackenzie has just edited "Algebra in rrr2 log 3,451 Easy Lessons" for Ray Burns. Showing at all the best theatres is that famous couple, Margaret and Richard Taylor, in the exciting "Rebecca Returnsj' written, produced and directed by Richard Taylor-Taylor-made! On the same program is the thrilling, spine-tingling, "Butcher Arms Around Me," starring Sissy "Oh, You Kid!" Sangster. Before the show begins there will be the "Try, Try Again Amateur Show," with the following contestants: Bubbles Reesor Sweety Stephens Cuddles Lacey and Kutie Kraemer doing your favorite numbers. But, alas, not all the graduates of that class became famous -some were married, and, worse still, some became school teachers. Do you remember Wilma Daniel? Well, now she's prin- cipal of the latest correspondence school, her motto: "My way is the Weiss way." Two of our colleagues have established the Morrison and Marcellus School for Girls-"We only take nice girls, but the McQueen girls, Rose, Petunia, Lily and Dan- delion, go here, too." Kay Grenache is tutoring Algebra and Sociology to the Grant and Cuyler kids, and Don Hullock is a Social Studies teacher, with emphasis on the Social! Eileen Krauss took off and married a T.C.A. pilot, and Annabel found that being a dress-maker wasn't much alone, so she found herself a suitor, collared him, and after he pleated with her to marry him, she hemmed and hawed, then accepted and married the janitor. Ruth Collier decided she wasn't going to be a bridesmaid again, so became a bride instead. Norma Vesso and Marguerite Broughton took the fatal step and now each one has a bawl and change. Joyce Turner says she might as well be a Librarian because Don's always booking off, or leaving her on the shelf. Remember Betty Williams? Well, she heard the "call of the open road" and became a Varga-bound. 13 When you're in Miami, you simply must visit the fabulous summer resort, Bill Beach, by a designer of the same name. Chuck Allen vacations there every winter. In the summer he loafs in California, and in the winter, Florida. Ray Burkett had an interesting time while travelling on the train the other day. The conductor looked at him as though he hadn't paid, so Ray looked right back as though he had. Bertha Andersen has become her own boss. At the office she can start any time before seven and stop any time after six. Pete Kinvig is now an eminent band leader and composer. Even Bill Kanewischer's singing his latest hit "Give Me a Simple Wife." Also in the musical world we find Ida Hedlund and her Medicine Hat Conservatory of Music. Many people have obtained their L.S.M.F.T. degree from this music centre. In the medical field the class of '47 is well represented. Marg Lyon and Betty Gant have certainly made names for themselves in the Dr. Kildare Memorial Hospital. They have very important work in the kitchen-Betty washes the dishes and Marg dries. At the same hospital Karen Mathieson is the anaesthetist. It's so nice and quiet. Everyone in this hospital has heard of Doc Elder. He's the only one they know who can take out your tonsils and play Pennsylvania 6-5000 on the sax, at the same time. Helen Mary McNichol is now the Russian ambassador to Nicaragua. They can't understand what she's saying and she can't understand what they're saying-so the Foreign Ministers conference goes on. Mike Chomik has become a very wealthy man shipping machine guns to the United Nations Assembly Debates. And Irene Lewis has changed her name because people were giving her dirty looks every time she bought a ton of coal. Norman Mauch has become a "Voyageur of the Rods"- ever since Mr. Cuyler told him about Hobohemia. Lloyd Flaig and Anne Hopkins have a marvellous Biology Laboratory, one of the most modern in the world. One of their minor assistants is someone called Lapp. Ever hear of her? Budd Whiticar has designed some of the very latest houses. His rumpus rooms are marvellous. His slogan? "You, too, can have a bowling alley in your basement." And Don Fraser has become general manager of the Dominion Fruit Company. What about me? Well, on the corner of Backwater Street and Chinatown Avenue, you'll find a little booth with this sign on it: YOUR FUTURE told by MME. BRINKHURST A Prophecy for a Free Meal -J . Brinkhurst. 14 05rai1i-ri ANNE HOPKINS -A quiet girl who goes in for technical subjects. Of course, she just loves Bug II, but then, who doesn't? Anne is also very fond of sports. ART RAYNER- The lad with the bookkeeping figures tin his mindj plans to upset the economic system of Canada by becoming an account- ant. He excels in bowling and mo- tor tinkering. Art also run a motor- cycle with a sidecar. HELEN MARY McNICHOL - This popular miss has always taken an active interest in school life. This year her time has been fully oc- cupied, as she is secretary of the T.A.M.S. and business manager of the Year Book committee. She is so fascinated by French that she intends to become an interpreter at the Canadian embassy. CHARLIE ALLEN-Chuck has made his name famous as a star of the Imps and on sports day. His ambition is to graduate without ever havinjg done ,any homework. z .fgfQ'L'-fhlvfg -.529 .5 14 ,LJ 4,P,I5,,,,.,,.,'U BERTHA ANDERSEN - Where there is some bookkeeping to be done there is a shout for Bertha. That's how she became the account- ant for the Year Book Committee. Bertha can be found with Marg on week-ends, boat riding on the streams at Seven Persons. NORMAN MAUCH-With muscles and a six o'clock shadow Cdaylight saving timej, Norm is the only boy in the school who has a Upillow- padded chair" for each class. Mr. Mauch's ambition in life is to in- herit Ford's millions so that he can retire. P.S.-Norm's hoping for a good-year. 15 DON FRASER - Six foot two with eyes of blue, describes Don. While his golf may be above par, he can get along fine with Audrey. His ambition is to become postmaster- general and the way he throws around those mail bags he'll soon have the job cinched. JACQUIE, BRINKHURST - With- out Brink and her wisecracks, school would be a lot duller As a leading character in our annual plays, vice-president of the Stu- dents, Union, and head of the Radio Committee, not mentioning algebra and French, Jacquie's time is well spent. RAY BURKETT-Besides being one of the school's top athletes and everybody's friend, Ray is the chief liaison officer between the student body and the teachers. His ambi- tion is to teach people to be like him. MAY MORRISON-May, a shy, quiet lass from Orion, plans on going to Normal. Her unique way of explaining things is really some- thing. She has a wonderful time in English. EDDIE BACK-This is the guy who, no matter whether he's at school or on his way there, seems to be late for preliminary period. He is also the handyman for the Dramatics Club. MARGARET LYON - Marg is well known for her book-borrowing abil- ities. Her patient manner will come in handy when she becomes a nurse. She and Bertha are in- separable pals. 16 RAY BURNS-This handsome young wolf from Saskatchewan can usually be found at Ernie's, dream- ing about somebody's cousin from Carmangay. He has two ambitions, these being: a three-cushion shot into the side pocket and to grad- uate. -' 1 . . 1, 'K fmt- 'ez-r-H "adsl, JOYCE TURNER-To the girl who can balance Students' Union books and still come up smiling, the teaching profession beckons, but we hate to see it happen to such a nice person. Joyce has been active in the Drama Club and en- joys acting and singing. FRED McQUEEN-Here we find 'tJosh" who has been very active this year, for he is president of the Forum Club and chairman of the Graduation Committee. His ambi- tion is to become one of the coun- try's leading florists with an acre or so of greenhouses, of which he will devote a section to the growing' .ldf of orchids for Betty. AMW' if Asa. ANNABELL ANDERSON - This lass CBrush-cut Annabellj is taking technical subjects. Her ambition is to become a tailoress, but a cer- tain young man may change her mind. She is remembered for the fact that she never got to choir on time. RENNIE DEDERER-He comes to school to sleep. His chosen ca- reer is to become chief ball-catcher at the Central emporium. Ren's a man-about-town in his '46 Chev. He claims that Biology is his favor- ite period. fywwdg- fi' ffl- 'ff af fp 'G'1nu,, 'NORMA VESSO - Norm is special- izing in technical subjects to pre- pare for her career as a tailoress. 'She is fond of riding and walking. She and Eileen are inseparable. 17 MARGUERITE BROUGHTON - This cute little brunette known as Dixie intends to be an interior de- corator. She has taken technical courses this year to prepare for her career. CLIFFORD ADAMS-The Wizard at mechanical drawing is Cliff. This jolly fellow is everyone's friend. He is the only person we know who delivers groceries in his dad's '46 car. RUTH COLLIER -Plans either to marry or join the army. Knowing how Ruth hates dishwashing, some are afraid she might not be too successful in either and suggest teaching instead. VVILLIAM KUNDERT-He likes nothing better than to spend Satur- day night at a country dance. Willie was an E.R.O. member, but still dislikes giving a speech. LOTTIE ZEITNER-Lottie is go- ing to be a stenographer. She will really be able to smile at her boss, with such a beautiful set of teeth. Lottie is quiet-until you get to know her. GLEN ODLAND-Mr. Vallis has hired Glen for his permanent er- rand boy, as he always comes back with a girl. His favorite pastimes are country dances. He has been an active member of the E.R.O. and his ambition is to be a mechan- ical engineer. 18 JOYCE MARCELLUS - When this blonde little miss finishes high school she plans to train for a teacher. She says that she would like to travel north to teach the Eskimos, but the greatest possibil- ity is that she will return to Em- press to recover her heart. BILL KANEWISCI-IER-Bill is the angel of Mr. Vallis's Grade XII Commercial class and also, we might add, the only male. He was an enthusiastic reader of Western stories but lately has lost interest. He is very fond of giving speeches for Miss Cobb, and sharing his law book with a certain blonde. DON ELDER-Don is the tenor sax man who plays with the Mod- ernaires on his spare evenings. His hobbies include music and photo- graphy. His ambition? Why, a doctor, of course. BETTY GANT-When t'Miss Gant" entered A.H.S. in the fall of 1913 it was a happy day for the old school, for Betty has been a staunch supporter of all Union activities. Just ask the candidates whom she supported at election time. This year Betty was president of the T.A.M.S., and head of the Girls' Committee. MIKE CI-IOMIK-Mike's the wo- man-hater of A.H.S. Although he doesn't participate in school activ- ities, he is very studious. His am- bition in life is to make a million as a pool shark. WILMA DANIEL - Wilma, keenly interested in school activities, is an active member of the T.A.M.S. and choir and still finds time for volleyball, basketball, and Herb. After she leaves A.H.S., Wilma plans to be a primary teacher. 19 BUDD WHITICAR-"Lover", as his friends call him, is a good "Mahon," Since he heard that wo- men are a dime a dozen he's been mad-"to think that all these years I've been spending my money on popcorn." Favorite subjects are trig and biology. IDA I-IEDLUND -Just ask this blonde how she gets her high Biol- ogy II marks-work, that's all. Her spare time is spent at the show and playing the piano. She plans to be a music teacher. DICK STEPHENS-Dick is the lad with corny jokes and flashy clothes. His theory is that you learn by asking questions. He is very active in sports, dramatics, music and on the dance floor. MARGARET PATTERSON - Born in 1929, she brought on the depres- sion and ever since then, things have been happening. Marg is president of the Glee Club, mem- ber of the T.A.M.S., Melody Maids, En Avant Committee, and basket- ball team. Her favorite pastimes are singing and men. She was co- star in t'Rebecca." EWART KINVIG-"Pete" is one of the most popular boys in the school. He plays the piano and the clarinet and we do mean play. He was head of the Dance Committee during the year. Also enjoys sing- ing!! SIBYL-LOUISE NIBLOCK - Sibyl is the hard working secretary of the Students' Union. This scholar- ship winner is very interested in languages and in the near future will probably be found studying French at the U. of A. This year she has been the school pianist. 20 NORRINE LUTES-The editor of the Year Book has an identity all her own, for she has not only beauty but brains! She says she is count- ing on a career, but we think that the Home Economics course which she plans to take at Varsity will be put to another use. After all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. DICK TAYLOR-Prominent in dramatic, Council and musical af- fairs, Dick is also the well-known composer of the "Lost Concerto." He is surrounded with an air of mystery, for we can never under- stand how he gets his high marks without any homework. JOYCE REESOR-As our first girl president, Joyce must find that she has to be a human dynamo to keep up with all her activities. Musically inclined and winner of two speaking contests, Reese plans on university if she can ever pass French. IRVIN Sl-IORE-Each school has its playboy and with A.H.S. it's "Itsy." 'tits' knows more girls than Carter has pills. He is noted for his second-hand jokes and his true- to-life sketches of the teachers. "Its', hopes to enter the field of commercial art, but we think he'll be selling loud ties or shining shoes for Bing Crosby. f1..4.4,f Tffwfw-0'-'S' EILEEN KRAUSS - Eileen wants to be a dress designer. If we can judge by the cute clothes she de- signs and makes for herself, she is Well on the way. She likes read- ing and drawing and has played in the A.H.S. orchestra for years. DON MacKENZIE-The reason they call him t'Sunshine" is because he is never out at night. Don is usually seen around the pool hall, although his ambition, other than to be the local snooker champ, .is to be a civilpengineer.

Betty served as secre- tary of the Forum Club and on the Graduation Committee, besides tak- ing an active part in Gym Club and Table Tennis Club. DON HULLOCK-If you want to argue about world affairs, politics, or merely the weather, Don's your man. While an active participant in school activities, notably the For- um Club, Don hopes to become an engineer. ROSE MARIE LACEY - Although new to the school, Rose Marie is an old friend of the students. She is well-known for her singing tal- ents, and is planning her career along that line, for next year she can be found at the Toronto Con- servatory of Music. DALE KRAEM AR - Where there is music there is Dale, for he be- longs to three choral groups. Al- though he is struggling through a matriculation course, Dale still finds time for shows and jiving. He was food convenor for the Teen dances. ELAINE SANGSTER-Elaine likes beautiful clothes and handsome, tall men. She made a good job of editing the En Avant this year. Her immediate plans for the future are teaching, but she admits she's the domestic type. 22 FRED SCHNEIDER -- Fred seems to like physics and trig very well, but gets along well in all his courses. He just sits there and takes it all in. He plans to be an optometrist. ' IDA JOHNSON-Another steno- grapher-to-be, Ida was head of the printing and arrangement of the En Avant She will probably be manager of her own "doin's" soon. BILL BEACH-Shows and bowl- ing are Bill's main pastimes. His greatest interest is in automotives, but he hasn't decided what he will do after graduating. KAY GRENACHE - Kay does well in school, excelling in mathematics. Her hobbies include snap collect- ing, horseback riding and "poison- ingl' people at Frank's Grill.

Of course we have to have some of the opposite kind too, like TOM M., the room's chief nuisance, and JOAN F.. who as the writer of this, you can see, is crazy.

E511 3561111 The aim of the En Avant committee this year was to keep up the standards set by last year's committee and to fulfill the expectations of the students. One very important goal was reached when, to the surprise of the editor, the students and even one of the teachers created a great deal of controversy over one of the editorials. While the criticisms were rather harsh the interest shown in the paper proved to be very helpful to the committee. The girl responsible Cshe loved ith for the two pages of scandal in every issue was Joyce Jorgensen. Judy Freedman's "Girls' Page" never ceased to bring forth laughs. President Joyce Reesor reported from the Students' Council, and Bob Shiels "gave out" continually with his amazing style in the Weakly Whiz. All of the writers this year have been exception- ally good, but space does not permit mention of each of them. For the past two years the En Avant has won the I.O.D.E. scholarship for the best school paper in Alberta. It is hoped that the one hundred dollars now realized by the paper will be used for furnishing an En Avant room. 41 " chasm" From the opening curtain to the end of the final scene, tense drama was featured on the A.H.S. stage. With only a smattering of comedy in Act II, "Rebecca" was well received by the capacity crowds at the two presentations. The entire cast gave a grand performance in their roles of the people living at Manderley. Star of the play was Jacquie Brinkhurst, who portrayed Mrs. Danvers, the evil housekeeper. She drew applause every time she appeared on the stage. The other two leading roles, those of Mr. Maxim de Winter, played by Dick Taylor, and Mrs. de Winter, by Marg Patterson, were also excellently charac- terized. In the supporting roles the honors go to Irvin Shore, who played the happy-go-lucky country squire, Giles Lacey. He acted his part all the way and contributed to the amusement of the enthusiastic audience. Lois Mahon, who played the part of his wife, was also very good. Honorable mention goes to all the other supporting actors, as they played their parts mag- 42 DRAMA EXECUTIVE Back row Cleft to rightl: Mr. Allergoth, Miss Nyberg, Mr. Fisher. Front row: I.

Besides our three-act "Rebecca," which was declared a success, the Drama Club presented a radio play, "Why I Am a Bachelor," over CHAT. The Drama Club has been functioning only as an executive with Elaine McNichol as president, Lois Mahon, secretary and Elizabeth Gibbs, treasurer. Because of the difficulty of securing programs regular meetings had to be discontinuedg perhaps next year we have them once again. This year the Festival promises to be better than ever with seven plays entered. The Festival brings this year's dramatics to a close, but you can be looking forward to more and better dramatics next year. nificently. They included Ron Miller, Dick Stephens, Budd Whit- icar, Don Elder and Ewart Kinvig. It is hoped that in the future more fine dramas such as this will be produced by Mr. Allergoth at the high school to bring out the drama students' talents. The school orchestra played between acts. 43 MIXED CHOIR Back row lleft to right: H. Weiss, P. Kinvig, D. Taylor, T. Simpson, Mr. Vallis, A. Rayner, R. Patterson, D. Stephens, D. Cuyler, D.

Through the incessant din comes the faint sound of Sibyl Louise pounding on the piano. During the year the choir has been heard over CHAT, at the Kiwanis Club, and has also presented two Well received concerts. Numbers varying from the "Hallelujah Chorus" from the Messiah, to the semi-popular "Deep in My Heart" were included. 44 GIRLS CHOIR Back row lleft to rightl: A. Anderson, D. Brown, H. McNichol, M.

At the beginning of the year, the choir was divided into the Mixed Choir and the Girls' Choir, each with its own execu- tive. President of the Mixed Choir was Margaret Patterson, with committee members of Lorraine Newman, Lois Mahon, Dick Stephens and Dale Kraemar. The executive of the Girls' Choir was: president, Lorraine Newman, secretary-treasurer, E'va Biel, and librarian, Phyllis Wood. To the conductor, Mr. Vallis, and to Sibyl Niblock, who accompanies the choirs, goes the thanks and appreciation of all members for the fine Work they have done.

After an intensive recruiting campaign about 14 members were obtained. In a whirlwind election the executive, with Fred McQueen as president, Art Rayner as vice-president, Betty Williams as secretary and Don Hullock as treasurer, was chosen. Mr. Johnston was our able staff advisor and counsellor. The members met every Wednesday to thresh out the problems discussed the previous night on Radio Forum. Doug Martin provided the humor by cutting in with acid remarks about Pat Cooney's nationality, while Pat retaliated with dire threats against Doug's welfare. Fred McQueen was always in complete agreement with the secre- tary's views, probably for a very good reason. The two main events of the year were the weiner roast and a radio broadcast over CHAT on the subject, "Is Germany Still a World Menace ?" On the whole, the Forum Club enjoyed a very successful year due to the enthusiasm of the members and the splendid support of Mr. Johnston. 46 ORCHESTRA Back row lleft to rightl: D. Elder, G.

QBrches1rz1 Again a "few faithfu1s" have struggled to keep up the exist- ence of a high school orchestra, although lack of violinists has made it very difficult. In the fall we attempted heavy well- known classics, but because the balance was poor, we turned to more modern music. Our first performance was at the Christ- mas concert, followed by selections given at the Little Theatre plays, Festival, school play, and the T.A.M.S. tea. Members of the orchestra are under the able direction of Mr. R. E. Pedersen. Violins-Eileen Krauss, Alex Chernywech. Clarinets and Saxophones-Ewart Kinvig, Don Elder.

Cllzrmera Glluh The Camera Club is a comparatively new organization, this being only its second year of functioning. Under the super- vision of Mr. Wait and Mr. Tait, the Club got under way in September, with the following executive: president, Eddie Back, vice-president, Doug Falkinsg secretary, Irene Tonking treasurer, Betty-Jean Layton. Room 14 was used for the business meetings, while Room 8 became the C1ub's dark room. In September an enlarger was purchased and during the year an endeavor was made to pro- duce enlargements. Due to poor working facilities and insuf- ficient supplies, the Club has been greatly hampered, but pro- vided many group pictures for the Year Book. Under Walter Fenrick, "outings" were arranged so that members might take picture for adjudication. Many interesting lectures were given by Mr. Wait and Mr. Tait. The members also learned how to operate the movie projector. At the end of each year prizes are given to the members whose work shows the most promise. 48 ERO CLUB Back row lleft to rightl: B.

Doug Martin and Archie Peterson were vice-presidentsg Harold Tate was secretary, and Mr. Cuyler acted as staff advisor. One of the highlights of the year was the series of inter- room debates, won by Irene Tonkins and Bob Stephens. During the year the Club was privileged to hear a former member, Mr. Gordon Campbell, now Canadian representative of the International Students' Service. As in former years members were called upon to give a short speech at the annual banquet. He asked her to wed. "Go to father," she said. But she knew that her father was dead, so she knew he knew what she meant when she said: "Go to father." 49 50 GRADE NINE EXECUTIVE Bock row lleft to rightl: R. Royment, J. McDougall, B. MacDonald.

This was the first year for such a club and its need was well understood when about 170 students registered in grade nine this year. It was formed under the Students' Union and was advised by Miss Forsyth and Mr. Fisher. The club was formed so that the grade nines could have their own assemblies fthe auditorium being too crowded for the whole schooll, parties and dances. The executive consisted of Buckley Ratcliffe, Jim McDougall, Elsie Mauch and Ross Rayment. During the course of the year the club had three parties, at which scavanger hunts, dancing, movies and FOOD were enjoyed. Everyone agreed that this club helped them to start off on the right foot in their first year at high school, 51 king xhax-A IH 9 4133-U t bfi fam , ch i C11 TAMS Back row lletf to rightl: G.

The T.A.M.S., formed only four years ago, is a group of girls who meet every Tuesday after four to discuss teen-age problems. Among the first things accomplished was the mak- ing of baby layettes which were sent to Holland. These were greatly appreciated by the recipients. The executive elected in- cluded Betty Gant, Helen Mary McNichol and Alice Lozo. They had several guest speakers, among them Mrs. A. Fraser, who spoke on the formation of a desirable personalityg Mrs. Major Maclevinny, who described her life in China during the warg Miss B. MacFarlane, who chose color and styles for the individual girl as her topicg Miss Helen Leitert, who spoke on P.T. summer camp, and Mrs. G. G. Elder, who described the art of weaving. This year, instead of the usual "shags," the T.A.M.S. held dancing classes. A group of boys and girls were taught the 53 fundamentals of dancing. They in turn attempted to teach these fundamentals to the students. The classes were very beneficial. The most important project they undertook was the Red Cross Tea. Everyone worked very hard to make it the success it was, for they sent 25170.00 to the Red Cross. The T.A.M.S. had several parties during the year, including one for the new girls of the school. At Christmas, Santa Claus visited them Cplayed by Mr. Taitl and gave out surprise pack- ages. As a grand finale a barn dance and scavenger hunt was held. In keeping with the hard times costumes they served crackers and water. After many groans and several dances they were served "real" food. If the party was a typical example of the enjoyment all the T.A.M.S. have had by being T.A.M.S., then they have had a very successful year. assemblies This year the students were still crowding into the old audi- torium to hear important visitors, and the murmurings about the lack of chairs and such were soon forgotten as everyone settled down to enjoy the various speeches. The first speaker of the year was Miss Herman, R.N., a representative of the Red Cross who told us of the need of Junior Red Cross organizations. She asked for our help and told us what other organizations were doing. Another speaker at the school was Mr. Lambert. He mentioned and explained the many advantages and courses offer- ed in the field of radio technology. One of the outstanding speeches of the year was given by Mr. Gordon Campbell, B.A., A.T.C.M. Mr. Campbell is a former student of A.H.S. and has now made a name for himself outside of the high school and Medicine Hat. He attributes some of his success to the fact that he was a member of the E.R.O. Club. As secretary of I.S.S., which deals with the international exchange of university students, he very vividly told of his interesting, educational and humorous experiences in Europe, and also of his present-day work. J ust before the Easter holidays an assembly was held for the presentation of the scholarships. The winners were Eleanor Johnson, Sibyl Louise Niblock, Hattie Hogg, Phyllis Sadler, Noreen Cuyler, Millicent Salway and Herbert Weiss.

The T.A.M.S. did a wonderful job-it made me tired just to think of all the work they had done. Of course, everyone was there, it was well advertised, thanks to Jean Elder, and also to Audrey Mann and Doreen Henderson for all the invitations they sent out. Miss Cobb, Betty Gant, Joyce Reesor, Sibyl Louise Niblock and Helen Mary Clara McNichol welcomed and guided the guests. The head table was decorated by Phyllis Sadler's committee with spring flowers, while each tea table had small golden harps on green bases as centerpieces-very attractive. The waitresses were organized by Wilma Daniels. The White Elephant table, under the direction of Audrey Papoe, sold anything and everything they could lay their hands on. Next to it was a raffle table for the cake made by Mrs. MacDonald. Tickets were sold by Johnene MacDonald. Along the wall of the aud. was the Home Cooking table-a great success. You'd think the people hadn't eaten for a month, but, then, everything looked so good! It was under Elaine Sangster's eagle eye. There was also a Shop and Home Ee. table where Bea Wilson looked after the selling of A.H.S. pennants, etc. And, of course, I can't forget the candy table.

Gee, I'm still going around in circles! The reason: the T.A.M.S. celebrated the end of the club's year with a barn dance. First of all we had a Scavenger hunt-had to go all over town for the darnedest things-got back around 9:30, but another group won. They were Kay White, El Amos, Rey Papoe, Elaine Sang- ster, Cliff Steedman, Doug Folkins fthe watch-the-birdie-and smile manl, Don Fraser and Irvin Shore.

Imps Win Title Alexandra High School's fast-stepping Imps captured the only championship of the year by taking the play-off for the City Basketball League. Coach Grant's stout-hearted quintet led the league race from the first whistle but had a spectacular struggle in the final before they emerged victors over the Ram- blers, led by veteran Jack Moyer, one of the soundest players ever developed at the High School. In the concluding game, with five seconds to go the score was tied. Bob Lindsay, cap- tain of the squad and sparkplug, was granted a penalty shot. The title depended on the outcome of the toss. Lindsay called time out to get his breath. Then the shot cameg it arched over the rimg it dropped ing the title was secure by a single point. Imps got to the final of the provincial high school "B" series but dropped two games to the Raymond team. The series showed the marked advance of basketball at Alexandra High School during the past few years. Raymond, however, has the advantage of much more inter-high school competition and superior playing accommodation. Raymond players start the game much younger than do Medicine Hatters.

Allen was top scorer of the first line which included for- wards, Bob Lindsay and Dick Stephens, and defencemen, Bur- kett and Hamilton. The sparkling play of the second line was one of the features of the year. The tyros included Miller, Johnson, Lutes, Weiss and Carscadden. Mr. Grant coached and managed the team. Junior Basketball Four well-matched teams composed the Junior Basketball League which operated under the direction of Mr. Johnston. Squads were coached by members of the Imps who gave the boys much advice and information about the finer points of the game. Indications are that a number of the players will soon be wearing the livery of the senior team. The play-offs were captured by a well-balanced quintet captained by Alex Chacalias who defeated Goldie's team in an interesting contest. Sharland's and Feeney's teams were elim- inated in the earlier round. Table Tennis Interest has never lagged in this new activity at the A.H.S., for it was under the very capable supervision of Mr. Grant, with Max Adkins taking some of the laurels for his work. Sixteen girls and thirty-two boys participated in the matches. Dick Stephens, Walter Borowski, Bob Lindsay and George Fairless fought a hard battle in the semi-finals of the boys' competition. In the final Borowski and Fairless were matched, but the latter was defeated and Borowski advanced to become school champion. Johnny had a little bookg Its leaves were white as snow.

Intermediate Basketball Exciting contests in the Intermediate Basketball League showed that a number of the players are on the way to joining the Imps and will be cavorting in senior uniforms before they complete their high school course. Teams were under the staff supervision of Mr. Medd and were coached by members of the Imps. When the dust of battle had cleared, the squad led by Henderson topped the league, closely pursued by Colthorp, Bagshaw and Mitchell. But the powerful Henderson quintet was unable to take the play-offs. In the semi-final fixture, Colthorp's smart sharpshooters toppled an aggressive Bagshaw team and went on to defeat the league leaders. Much of the improvement in the calibre of basketball played at Alexandra High School can be attributed to the keenly con- tested matches staged in the Intermediate league.

In Rugby Final The 1946 edition of the Green and White was the best yet, it conquered the Lethbridge squad in the semi-final of the pro- vincial series but was not quite good enough to dethrone Cal- gary's Crescent Heights which has gone undefeated for the past two years. Another year and it may be a different story. The revival of the gridiron sport has been one of the features of the high school life during the past two years and the side- line quarter-backs who follow the game will assure you that each team is better than the last. Much of the credit for the success of the team goes to coaches "Moose" Bannan and "Slim" Cook and Manager Aller- goth who worked untiringly to produce a powerful well-trained squad. The Alexandra team scored a smashing victory at Leth- bridge, winning 29 to 0. In the final played at Medicine Hat, after falling apart in the first half, the boys came back in the second to play magnificent football, but came out on the short end of the 21-5 score. Rugby players are hopeful that next year more games can be played with outside teams. The team consisted of: backfield, Haworth, Lindsay, Keating, Henderson, Untersehr, Burkett, Bagshawg line, D. Stephens, R. Stephens, Miller, Marr, Gothard, Cooney, Fraser, Flaig, Hall, Steedman. During the earlier part of the season senior players were divided into teams and played several house league games. 69 0 L I V E R' S SPECIALTY DRY GOODS Everything in Yardage Goods - Home of Irish Linen McCall's Printed Patterns Third Street We cover Buttons Medicine Hot HEALTH F HEADQUARTERS if Gardner Motors P IE LIMITED I Q Essentials to E Lovgljnegs ,E The Home of 1.

This year, three teams were selected, each with a senior player as coach. Captains were MacDonald, Greenstein and Nesting.

Senior Girls' Basketball Supervisor Miss Nyberg and coach Bob Lindsay undertook the training of the Co-eds for 1946-47. During the year the Co-eds, averaging approximately 15 players, played several games. The only competition from the city was S.T.C. and a city team. The Co-eds were victors in all games played against S.T.C. and city but got a bit edged out when Taber came down, and also in their return game. Near the end of the season the girls received new uniforms and made a display of them when Taber again returned to defeat the Co-eds. A pleasant time was had by all participants during the year and the Co-eds have high hopes for next season. Marj.

Gym Club The physical education display in April was the culmination of this year's activities in the Gym Club. This fine display showed the training the members had received under Mr. Aller- goth and Miss Nyberg. This was the first year in which girls were privileged to join the club, under Miss Nyberg and Lloyd Eckroth, president of the club. The girls learned much and gained a great deal of enjoyment. Mr. Allergoth supervised the boys' activities. The Gym Club was much larger this year and it is to be hoped that it will continue to grow and be able to present more displays to the public.

Bowling The Bowling Committee reported a very successful year with twenty teams participating in the three leagues-mixed, boys' and girls'. Much of the credit for the success goes to President George Renner and staff advisor Mr. Tait. The Bowleggeders, consisting of Dick Stephens, Phyllis Wood, Art Rayner, Lorraine Newman, Rita Peters and Eva Biel, captured the mixed bowling championship, with the Cadillacs close seconds. The winner of the boys' championship was the Lucky Strikes who led the field all the way. This team consisted of Willie Kundert, Bob Stephens, Rennie Dedercr, Glenn Odland, Burl Whiticar, Merle Bradley and Hillyard Craddock. The Dimwits annexed the girls' title with a team consisting of Judy Freedman, Isabelle Murray, Barbara Northam, Betty Watson and Bea Wilson. The Lucky Strikes counted 2131 pins for the high two-game team total. High single for the year was captured by Glenn Odland with a total of 302. In the finals, contested by the mixed, boys' and girls' teams, the Lucky Strikes were victorious to become the school cham- pions. 83 Sr 3 C 'aww fwk 3-:ani V09 Cancun h-nhuq, yJ 9 84 Dow!

Dusty River Junction, Arkansas. Dere Maw, Wall, I have finished my first year at school and now that I am ready to graduate I have learned enough to send you this letter. I have done very good because the teachers said that I should not be in high school. I don't really think I am good enough to go to college yet, tho. The first thing I did when I got to the big city fMedicine Hat, that isJ I went and looked up uncle Zeke. Heis in the hotel business. He cleans out the spittoons. Uncle Zeke said that since there were so many teachers at the school I would not be able to take them all an apple, so he gave me some apple seeds and I gave each of them one so they could plant a tree. The subject that I liked best was Social Studies. I find that there has been a war going on with some feller called Addie Hitler. QBy the way, how is our feud with Batfields coming along ?J I wouldn't listen to them when they tried to teach me history, tho. How could they tell me all about Napoleon Boneyparts and Bill Shakedown when they didn't even know the guys. I am also taking Geometry so I will be able to move in the best circles. I take Sikology, which is supposed to tell you what everybody knows ina language that nobody understands. I would like to live in Paris, though. It seems that everybody there is so educated that they can all speak French. But there are' a lot of rules around here. You are not allowed to spit on the floor. They must leak or something. Five days of school make one weak. I don't really mind school, tho. It's just the principal of the thing. If I had my way all of the teachers would be paid so well they would be able to retire right away. We have a system of progressive edification. In it we spend a small part l7!10J of our time playing games and other sports than that there. There is football. This is a type of legal mayhem. As long as football is played on muddy fields it will never be a clean sport, even though they do have scrub teams. There is also tennis. This is mostly a racket. You have to be satisfied with net profits. There are also baseball, table tennis, bowling and an odd game of craps. Every now and then they put on a dance at the school. To look at all the people there you would think that the wall was going to fall down. They are all leaning on it. I am not 87 ' QUALITY? . . . the best: 0 STYLE? . . . the latest! 0 EXCLUSIVE . . .

When I come back to Dirty River Junction this summer I will go first by train. That is one of those things that smokes a lot and also choos. Then I will rent a streamlined car. That is one of those noo types of cars made so you can't tell if you were run over or backed into. When I reach the mountain country I will buy a mule. If it isn't too backward about going forward I should be back home by mid-August. Offectionately, BOB SHIELS.

TRUCKS 94 These I Have Loved Sweet memories of all that's past, For memories are the things that last. Thoughts that come-of childhood days- Awakened by some child that plays- When safe in loving arms at home- O foolish ones, why do we roam? Thoughts wander back to books and slates, The fun of school, the thrill of dates, The fears and tears of growing up Eager-but fearing, like a pup. Friends for life our school comrades To guide us when a strange life bades. A summer bonfire red and bright, A roast that lasts far in the night, The special fun that Christmas brings, With snow, and lights-delightful things. And these I have loved. The morning with its pearly dew, Its light pink sky, and hope anew, The silhouettes of autumn trees Against bright sunsets set to please. The midnight sky with silver stars, The splendour of Venus and Mars, The breathless still before a storm, Before the flash of light takes form, And then the smell so fresh and clean Raindrops glistening on the green. The scent of pines, a clear blue sky, The mountain trees through which winds sigh The fullness of my very living These things I love are everything. -Joyce Turner, Grade XII.

Career N ight In order to aid and advise students on their careers, Friday, March 15, was set aside for a Career Night at Alexandra High School. The students were guests of the Kiwanis Club, spon- sors of the evening. In opening the general meeting, Mr. N. A. Wait, president of the Kiwanis Club, told of the two years' preparation made by the club's Vocational Guidance Committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. L. Walker. President Wait introduced Mr. Walker, who emphasized the importance of the individual in choosing the vocation for which he is best suited. Two films, "Educating Father" and "The Passing Parade," were shown. The students were then dispersed into various groups to hear lectures on the vocation in which they were interested. Teaching, journalism, radio, agriculture, auto- motives, stenography, general office work, medicine, nursing, civil engineering, beauty culture, armed services, laboratory technician, and dietetics were included in the subjects discussed. This was the first of what is planned to be annual Career Nights. Because it was organized especially for the students, they would be well advised to take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and get advice from those who are already established in careers. 103
