School days, golden rule days, and we've arrived again in that
most frequented of rooms, the general office.....Here we sell our
books, buy our books, telephone, ask for pencils, see the teachers,
and pick old bones.
Behind the counter we observe the headmaster of A. H. S.--the
people who see all and know all about its manifold activities.
Ready tribute goes to Mr. Kaechele for his effective and stimu-
lating speeches delivered at assemblies, banquets, and other functions
My, oh my, what a job has he to perform innumerable tasks all through
the day, while he competently fulfills his responsibilltlesg he is
ever on hand graciously to help solve problems of individual students.
Who's that bustling around .... why, it's Mr. Letslnger, the
dynamo who keeps the school going round and round, right on schedule
too:!! Each morning sees some task begun....and what a grind for
Mr. Letsinger too. Writing green and orange and red passes by the

Just the start of a very busy program of multitudinous details with
his regular classes in general mathematics to complete the day.
Then 1t's Mr. Kyes, the quiet, genial guy, whose 'spare' time
duties embrace social science and English in the Junior High of which
he is supreme disciplinarlan and 'trouble-shooter.' '
Is there no lady present in the picture? Yes, indaed....Miss

The Allegan Tigers took their opener by a score of 30 to 0 over
Wayland. The gridders were slow in getting started but succeeded in
drawing first blood on a punt return by Ray Flynn. Scoring by Ken
Welle, Jack Mclntire, Mickey Spidel, and Dean Ferris helped to make
the 30 points. The local team was out-weighed,but they made up for it
in spirit. All the conversions failed.
Dowagiao won their game from us on the first play from scrimmage.
After this distressing occurrence Allegan played a different brand of
ball until the second quarter, when the Dowagiae Chiefs marched 53
yards for another score. But later in the same cento, Gearhart pounc-
ed on a blocked punt to make the score l2 to 7 at the half. With the
opening of the third period another score for the Chiefs raised the
count to 18 to 7. Later in the same stanza a pass from Ferris to
Molntire was good and the fray ended 18 to lb.
In Allegan's third tilt of the season, with Plainwell, their
second victory of the season was acquired. A 69-yard run by Spldel
gave the Tigers a 6 to 0 triumph. Neither team threatened in the sec-
ond or third quarters but Allegan, in the fourth, reached Pla1nwell's
12-yard line before being stopped. This was a hard-fought battle
Allegan won a moral victory, O to O, with South Haven for their
fourth contest. South Haven was favored by at least two touchdowns
but the inspired Tigers offset prediction. We had eight first downs
to South Haven's six. The closest the opponents came to the Tigers'
goal was the 27-yard line, and the Otis outfit's best effort toward
the Rams' goal was their 30-yard line. This was by far Allegen's best
performance of the season.
Our gridders lost their second conference game to Otsego by the
score of 7 to 6. It necessitated just eight plays for us to tally in
the opening quarter. But this wasn't enough--Otsego registered their
touchdown and secured their crucial point shortly after the Tigers had
scored theirs. The rest of the game was a grueling conflict with both
teams contending for that 'extra yard.'
On the Hastings field, Allegan turned the tables with a victory
of 7 to 6. Hastings scored in the first half and dominated play
throughout. With the start of the next period we returned, all keyed
up, and operated like a different team. In the third quarter, Allegan

tain to score, but Ferris knocked him out of bounds on our 20-yard line.
Here, after four downs, Allegan received the ball and started a march which
was halted by the final gun.

score of 7 to b. During the first half of the game the hedskins were on

And so we summarize the most successful season in quite a few years
for an Allegan football team, with five wine, two losses, and one tie, and
second place in the Allegan-Ottawa league conference. TH6 Tigers will lose
five linemen, Bud Mankin, Leroy Tooker, George Peet, Stanley Brokus, and
Jack Mclntire. They will also carry on without three backfield men, Ray
Flynn, Dean Ferris,snd Ken Wells. But with all the other fellows available
next year, Coach Otis should experience another glorious football season.

The Tiger Cubs engaged the Plainwell reserves,October Zb, at home and
lost by a score of 13-O. In the first period the Allegan boys held their
own, but in the second quarter the visiting eleven marched 5h yards to a
touchdown in two running plays. They then carried the ball across the goal
line for the extra point. In the fourth session the Blue and White nabbed
a Tiger pass and capitalized on the Wbreak' by driving down the field for
another touchdown. The conversion was unsuccessful. The period ended with
the score 13-O.
Fennville vanquished the Cubs to the tune of 12-O. In the first quar-
ter Fennville took possession of the ball on our 37 yard line where they
had blocked a Tiger punt. After four running plays the opponents register-
ed their first touchdown, but failed to add the additional tally. In the
second period Clyde Wells lugged the oval to the invaders' 12-yard stripe,
but fumbled a bad pass from center to halt our march. Fennville's second
touchdown developed in the third quarter when Moeller moved the ball to
Allegan's five-yard line and then plunged that distance for a touchdown.

til Don Herington's tackle halted our advance. Throughout the first
quarter both teams battled on even terms without scoring. Each eleven
tallied a few points in the second Quarter, but in the third period the
frosh chalked up a touchdown. We were victorious by one point-the slim
margin being 13 to l2. All of the boys who competed for positions par-
ticipated in the encounter.
ln the next game, October 19, we didn't fare so well--we were beaten
25 to 19. The freshman knew what to expect from our players and they had
prepared a good pass-defense. Turing the first half, the ninth graders
handcuffed us while they crossed our goal line for two touchdowns. In
the third quarter our T-formation pass failed to function, but we did
manage to shove over a touchdown. Nr. O'Connor had predicted that our el
ders wouldn't walk all over us--and they dldn't.
The concluding contest was slated for November 9, when we played the
high school reserves. The kick-off was at h:2O p.m. with our aggregation
on the receiving end. Chuck Taylor caught the ball and was downed after
moving ahead about ten yards. On a reverse, halph Boe advanced the ball
fifteen yards and Wayne Burton, on a sweep around right end, picked up
eighteen yards to bring us about fifteen yards from the goal line. Our
hopes were high, but our attack bogged down and the ball changed hands.
The reserves proceeded to add more touchdowns to increase their lead to
35-O. ln the final session Wayne Burton ploughed through center for a
touchdown. Kenny Nunt's tackling was a feature of the fray. The final
score was 35 to O.

Three cheers for the cheerleaders.
They deserve much credit for leading the yells at football
and basketball games, as well as conducting pre-game pep sessions.
The regular cheerleaders were Carolyn Bindemann, Barbara Bartz,
Lena Lane, and Dick Yocum.
At first the girls wore one-piece, white-wool dresses with
an orange letter, while Dick displayed black trousers with orange
stripes and e school sweater. Later in the year the Student Council
purchased three orange sweaters having large tiger heads on the
back to distinguish the cheerleaders.
On several occasions Ann Mack, Fred Bindemann, and Jim Nichols
assisted the cheerleaders.

Now you have it, now you don't: That's the Freshman-Sophomore
contest results. The freshmen had the feeling of believing that they
had outpolnted the higher-graders, but oh, woe! a mistake was found.
As an anti-climax the sophomores were declared the real winners. A
Joint party was suggested, and the battling grades compromised by
sharing the expenses. Taking the lead in putting up all the decora-
tions were the designers, Mary Lemoin and Doug Nichols. Eats, Koh
boylj, were under the guiding hands of Reva Morris and John Miller and
Jackie Ferris and Bob Jenks planned a variety of entertainment. Fore-
men of the cleaner-uppers gang were Delores White and Bill Tenge.
The officers of the Freshmen class were chosen at the beginning of
the year. They ere: President, Joe Englesg his assistant, or the vice
president, Jack Backers, minute-taker, Sarah Hoffman, and the money-
holder, Toby Terry.
The freshmen planned a farewell party for their elder classmen,
the Seniors, et the close of the school year.

After the dust of Fair Week settled in September, 126 students
returned to become members of the Sophomore class.
The following class officers were elected at the first meeting:
president, Clyde Wells, vice-president, Larry Furjanichg secretary,
Betty Ellen Whitey treasurer, Barbara Kemp' social chairman Eugene
Millerg student council representative, Joan Swihartg class advisors,
Miss Towne, Mr. Letsinger. v
The annual Sophomore-Freshmen 'Field-Day' was held at the ath-
letic field, September 21. Not as green and timid as they were lest
year, the Sophomores eventually won the contest by the close score of
71-67, although the Freshmen strongly believed for e time that they
had triumphed. The groups had stipulated that the losers of the meet
should give a party for the victors. Due to an error in the count
which delayed the announcement of the correct returns, the two classes
decided to share the expenses of the party.
Three new' students joined the class in 'LL-'L5, but tragedy
struck in mid-November when our beloved classmate, Eugenie Richardson,
was stricken with spinal meningitis and died very suddenly.

The club has had varied programs ,including biographies, book re-

The girls have renovated the meeting room and made it attractive
and congenial. They are quite proud of their success in converting old
tires into comfortable seats.
In line with a traditional custom the G. R's entertained all those
girls who were desirous of jolnlng,,and a simple candlelight service
marked their recognition. These two affairs took place in September. The
new-comcrs were obliged to pledge to do their best to honor God, their
country, and their community, to help other girls: and to be in all ways
loyal and true members of the Girl Reserves. The slogan is 'Face life
squarely.' Their elm is world friendship.
Jackie Ferris and Mary Lou Kaechele served es representativeeat the

The culmination ot their social activities was a party, March 23,

The dramatic production of the
Senior Play began with a 'bang' when
most of the members of the class were
'screened' for the try-outs. The play
selected was the romantic comedy, 'Heart
After much deliberation Miss Clara
Bush, director, chose the cast from the
large group of potential Barrymores.
Soon work was begun by the cast, commit-
tees, and advisors in the latterpart of
Rehearsals for the play were inter-
rupted only when members of the cast
seemingly became affected with personal
'Heart Trouble.' However, no lasting
damage was done.
At long last, on December L and 5,
this hardy band presented the perform-
ance of their lives before a critical
but appreciative audience.
It could easily be said that the
actors lived their parts as they enacted
the story of s small-town girl hungry
for a spectacular romance. Humorous
situations arose because of her family
and friends, complicated by the appear-
ance of a villain.
The cast included Jack Aberegg,
Barbara Bishop, Beverly Bond, Winifred
Crowle, John Davis, Dean Ferris, Pat-
ricia Grauman, Dean McLaughlin, Louise
Terry, and Clair Woolf. V
The Senior Class presented Miss
Bush with a lovely bouquet in apprecia-
tion of her excellent direction and

The Tigers opened their 19bh-L5 basketball season at Holland. This game match-
ed the tall, lanky Dutchman against the short, speedy Tigers. The host team won the
tilt, Ll-25. Mclntire and Spidel were high-point men for the Orange and Black with
seven each, while Ven Dyke of the Maroons paced both teams with ln markers.
The second contest pitted Allegan against Plainwell for the first conference
game of the year. The Tigers eked out a 31-29 victory. Flynn was top-man with 9
points, while Kirch had 10 for Plainwell. The boys showed much improvement in team-
work since the initial meeting.
The next engagement ended with a victory for the Orange and Black over the
South Haven Rams, 32-26. The Rams were ahead at the intermission, 20-16, but they
faltared in the lest quarter, scoring only 6 to the Tigers' 16 points. Mankin, of
Allegan, and Park, of South Haven, topped the field with nine each.
For the next encounter Allegan traveled to Dowagiac. The Chiefs had two high-
scoring forwards, Moses and Faster, who tabbed 17 and 13 points, respectively. Man-
kin collected ll for his team's benefit, but the host quintet won, Lb-27.
Allegan's second conference game was at Zeeland, where the Chicks dominated
play to chalk up a triumph. Our failure to connect with the basket was just too
much to overcome, as we secured but 1 point in the first session. The half-time
score was 18-6. Mclntire led the Tigers with 8 markers, while Chamberlain, of Zee-
land, garnered 17 to take scoring honors for the night.
The local aggregation copped the two following contests. In the Otsego game
the Tigers obtained only 6 markers during the first half to their foe's 12, but a
big 19-point thrrd quarter rally sent them out in front. The final score was 32-27.
The Hastings match was a very rough affair with 37 fouls being called. The
Saxons were ahead at the half, 15-9, and still 6 points in advance at the end of the
third canto, 20-26, but the Brozak-coached team added one free throw only to the
Orange and Black's 13. The score was 33-27.
We lost to Zeeland, 36-20, on our home floor. As before Allegan had a poor
first quarter, obtaining only l basket to Zeeland's 9 points. The count at half-time
was 8-18. Van Omen was the hot shot for the night with 17 for the opponents.
Mclntire and Hough had 6 each for the Orange and Black.
Fortune again favored us as we edged South Haven, 31-28, for the second victory
over the Rams. The Ora d Bl
nge an ack accumulated 19 points in the first quarter to
South Haven's seven. The Tigers, however, were outscored in every other quarter,
but the margin in the first session proved too much for the foes to overcome Mankin
and Bierhalter, with 12 markers each, sparked their teams' offensive maneuvers dur-
ing the contest.
In the return encounter with Otsego, the Tigers finished on the heavy end of a
3A-21 score. Allegan led all the way. Mankin had 17 points for the Orange and
Black, while Klsinger had ll for the Bulldogs.
The following game found the Tigers without tuo key men Captain Bud Mankin
guard, and Walter Garrett, center, who entered the Army. Because of the loss of
these players, the Tigers' combination was off balance, but fought gamely and well
into the final quarter before yielding to the Plainwell team, 3h-28. Hutchinson was
the big gun for the' Blue and White with 15 points, whilt Mclntire had 9 for the
Determined to overcome the handicap of playing without their regular guard and
center, the Tigers labored strenuously in drill sessions and became more sure of
t amselves, but they entered the game as underdogs to Paw Paw. The rivalry was in-
tense all the way with the half-time score, 13-12, in the visitors' favor. As play
was resumed a see-saw affair developed with the lead changing hands, but the third
session ended. 19-17, also in the Redskins' favor. In the fourth quarter however
a free throw by Ray Flynn in the last ten seconds decided Paw Pa ' f ,
, w s ata, and
Allegan won,2L-23. Dean Ferris was high for the winners with 10, and Donavan had 10
for the losers.
The meeting at Hastings matched the tempo of the Paw Paw affair. Hastings
forged ahead by the end of the first canto, 9-6. The Tigers rallied to outscore the
Saxons in the following period and set up a half-time count of 18-17. In the third
session, the Orange and Black again

home crew clicked from the start in handcuffing the Terry-coached players, and at
the intermission held a 12-point lead, 26-ln. Relaxing a blt in the concluding ses-
sions, Allegan, nevertheless, maintained a safe margin of victory. Mclntire had lb
points for the winners and Chapman had 9 for the losers.

The windup of the regular season set the stage for the District Class B. Tourna-
ment. The Tigers drew Godwin Heights as their opponent for their first game, w
was scheduled to be played at South High gymnasium in Grand Rapids.

tilt promised to be a thriller and proved to be just that, as the first session ended

trio of baskets in a hurry settled the issue and brought the Tigers their first dis-
trict title since l937. Mclntire accumulated 11 points.
In the drawings for the Regional Tourney Allegan was paired with Ludington for
the first game on Friday, March 9. Although unable to hit their stride, the Tigers
squeezed ahead at the half, 13-12. The hectic pace continued throughout the fray,
but the Orange and Black managed to win, 2A-23. Jack Mclntire and Dean Ferris had
five points each for Allegan although all the players participated in the scoring.

By virtue of the victory over Ludlngton, Allagan was billed against Grand Haven
in the Regional finals on Saturday night, March 10. Displaying great form, the Tigers
stepped out in front at the quarter, 16-13. Grand Haven rallied to lead at the half,
28-2b, and than poured on the heat to extend the gap to LO-31 at the three-quarter
mark. The Orange and Black, obviously fatigued, still battled vallantly until the
final gun. The score was L7-37, but in losing to Grand Haven, the Tigers derived
satisfaction from the fact that Jack Mclntlre with 23 points, or more than half of
the locals' total, was the individual star of the tussle.
With the graduation of Mclntire, Flynn, Ferris, Woolf, and Sisson, the l9b5-L6
squad will be obliged to alter its lineup, but it will have the incentive of equal-
ling or surpassing the record of this year's team. With Hough, Spldel, and May, how-
ever, as a nucleus, and Webb, Wilcox, Meyer, and other promising candidates coming up
from the reserve group, Allegan should enjoy another good season.

29-17, after the Chicks held a two-point margin at the half, 11-9.
After the holidays, on Jan. 5, the Otsego second team collapsed before the
attack of the Cubs, 28-2L.
Now enjoying a three-game-winning record, the junior varsity, on Jan. 12,
fell prey to the Hastings Reserves, 29-20. The little Tigers could not overcome
a 22-19 deficit in the third period.
A week later, on Jan. 19, the Zeeland reserves again met their Waterloo,
when Allegan eked out a 19-17 win.
Again the reserves dropped a contest, Jan. 23, to the South Haven outfit,

Eager for revenge, the Otsego reserves on Jan. 26, nevertheless, received
their second defeat at the hands of the Cubs, 29-18.

Ales, however, in the tournment final Al1egan's reserves were easily trim-
med, 22-12, by Zeeland. The outcome was never in doubt.
As a finale the Cubs broke up a lL-game victory string of Pew Pew there,

Boom! The blast of dynamite goes off, as the G1rl's Athletic
Association initiate their new members, and the women begin their
activities. To make up for the bruised feelings of the newly in-
itiated members, the G. A. A. gave a Christmas party and all's well.
The members began their season of athletics by ten times of
volleyball, with both classes and preliminary tournaments. Captain
Verla Cronkite heads the winning women's team, and the weaker sex l?D
are on with their games. The softball and basketball tournaments
follow the volleyball for these active gals.
These athletes are really peppy as they indulge in extra sports
such as tennis, skating, etc. To top their year of sports an award
banquet was held in the spring for these girl athletes. Wheat!
There goes the whistle to stop'practicing:es their spirits linger in
old A. H. S., the women go marching out.

inaugurated the program for the year. Veteran members participated in this
The annual game supper, held in November, in conjunction with a
party given by the Girl Reserves, comprised the social highlight of the
year. Each was considered more than successful. A basketball game, in
which the Hi-Y defeated the F. F. A. by one point, aroused much interest.
During January and February special functions were the initiation
to the Farmers' Chapter and the Parent-Son Banquet. The latter event is
always e success and this yeer's affair was certainly no exception.
The F. F. A. sponsored several basketball teams and arranged a tour-
ament to determine the best quintet, among their memberships. These
groups were under the following captains:
Harvey Reimlnk Darl Blackman
Don Bentley Merle Reber
Albert Foote Dick Lyon
Games were played during the noon hour.
The club climaxed a successful year with a weenie roast held in May.

graduation, work, and lack of interest. Nevertheless
ll boys reported regularly for practices, according
to Coach Mulready. They- were Stanley Brokus, Jim
Nichols, Don Bentley, Kenneth Gates, Dale Bensinger,
Don Herington, Lyle Wedge, Elton Hiscock, Merle Reber
and Frank Lung. Stunts performed during intermlssions
of the home basketball games included rolls, hand
springs, and pyramids. As most of the boys were
working, they could not attend practices often. Nat-
urally the program suffered from competing interests.
Perhaps the situation will improve next year, for the
applause which the group received indicates that the
public appreciates this type of gymnastic exhibition.

Under the guidance of Herrmann Priebe, the band of
l9LL-L5 began operations with new and youthful personnel,
aided by a few veterans of past years.
The band deserves much credit, for the director rapid
ly rounded it into shape to march and play for the home
football games. The unit presented colorful drills be-
tween halves. Its most impressive appearance was that of
leading the spectators in the traditional 'Snake Dance' at
the Otsego-Allegan game.
The next item of business was the approaching basket
ball season. Lack of time restricted their marching to
three games, but they performed in a pleasing manner at
their new location on the balcony.
Schedule changes at mid-year divided the band into
two sections, and this factor increased the difficulty of
preparing for a concert. Despite the handicap, the groups
were on deck for Parents' Day with the band playing in the
morning and the orchestra at noon.
Memorial Day was another occasion for the band as it
participated in the annual parade.
with the advantage of much new talent developed this
year, the l9b5-A6 band promises to effect increased inter-
est and appreciation for instrumental music.

The Student Council, determined to make this the
best of its seven years of existence, launched its ac-
tivity soon after school began, September 15. The stu-
dent body had previously elected an enterprising set of
officers. They were as follows: president, Keen Mc-
Laughlin, vice-president, David Weston, secretary, Mara
lyn Ferris, treasurer, Jerald Lannenbergg and faculty
advisor, Mr. Hartger Winter.
The membership consisted of one representative
from each first-hour class and one from each grade in
President McLaughlin appointed the following com-
mittees: finance, Patsy Walker, Patricia Grauman, and
Sue Hettingerg public relations, Jerald Dannenberg,
Jean Meade, and Lynn Johnson, program, Maralyn Ferris,
Betty White, and hens Morris, campus, David Weston,
John Miller, and Jerry Gilpin.
The Council met weekly to settle the numerous
weighty problems brought to their attention and to con-
sider worthwhile suggestions.
Towel service was extended to the football and bas-
ketball teams, and a noon-hour program was again or-
ganized for those who lunched at school.
The Council also assisted the Defense Council with
the weekly sales of war stamps and bonds. A major
project undertaken was 31,000 war bond drive, sponsored
with the help of the Defense Council during the Sixth
War loan Drive, which netted 5l,826.25. During March
the group succeeded in selling enough stamps to buy a
field ambulance costing 3l,95O.
The Council shared the cost of purchasing for the
session the maroon stage curtains, which are now in use
By selling Ncokesn, potato chips, and Whot dogs' at the
basketball tournament, and by supporting a paper drive
the group collected the needed' revenue.
The Council also ordered sweaters for the cheer-
leaders and backed a poster campaign to boost school

regularly and produced a well-balanced unit.
Major engagements for which entertainment was provided were the
senior play, two community plays, junior play, Presbyterian Men's
Club, and Parents' Day. The Junior High group of the Orchestra play-

Don't be fooled by the title of the
Junior Play, 'The Merry Heres,W as there eren't
any happy rabbits running around.
The Juniors--newly actors and actresses--chose this
play by Agnes Emelie Peterson, and decided they would give the
play April Sth and 6th.
Then came the night! With Miss Bush's valuable advice ringing
in their heads, they advanced on stage to present the inside story of e
college professor's home. Affection around this home is genuine, al-
though the family is an eccentric one.
The professor, Horace Hare CDale Bensingerl, devoted to his study of
history, does not know much that happens around his home. However, his wife,
Annice KFlorine RossellJ,1s continually trying to keep herself beautiful for
her absorbed husband.
What'e a home without children? Well, the professor and his wife have
three to keep them busy. For with the twins--Diana KPeggy Pelll and Philip
fD1ck Huffl and Christian lBetty HermanD,the family is composed of beauty
and plalnness.looklng for money and love.
Ernest Cheshire CKeith Hampell makes advances, clumsy at that, toward
Christian, who cares nothing for romance or looks. The arrival of a
wealthy Aunt Amber KBetty Haightl and her nephew, Anthony Prather lRex
QuerbachJ,ahaad of time, confuses Christian, and she sends Mr. Prather
out to fix her motor boat. Anthony decides to play the mechanic and
Ernest is worried about Christ1an's concern toward Anthony.

The seventh successive Parents' Day was sponsored in our high
school, Thursday, March 22, from 9:00 a.m. to L:O0 p.m.
Mr. Rewalt served as general chairman of the Planning Committee
for this occasion. The comm1ttee's efforts to provide an interesting
program were rewarded by the attendance of approximately 200 parents.
The proceedings started with a band concert, followed by a wel-
come by Superintendent Arthur Kaechele and the morning address by Dr.
C. B. Loomis, head of the Sociology Department of Olivet College,
whose topic was WSchool and Community Problems.W
Discussions and conferences between parents and teachers were in-
formally held in each classroom and later continued after lunch.
For display purposes many exhibits, showing projects upon which
students had worked in their several classes, were attractively ar-
ranged for the parents' benefit in the gym.
At noon the Homemaking Il classes served a luncheon. During the
meal the orchestra furnished dinner music, and Miss Jane litowich,
vocal instructor, directed community singing. Then the group assem-
bled in session where Mr. Geiger, of Albion College, expressed his
views in a speech entitled WYouth Guidance--Today and Tomorrow.'
In the closing period members of the faculty and guest speakers
answered questions which parents had dropped into the 'Question Boxn
during the day.
Special praise is due to the teachers who planned the program and
the many students who gave up their day of rest to promote the success
of this annual event.

Forty eager boys answered Coach Otis' call for baseball
candidates this spring. With five returning veterans only the

During the summer eighty
Junior High School boys and girls worked on different
farms. Altogether 10,500 man-hours of labor were spent working at various jobs-pretty
good for us, don't you think?
The enrollment was much
larger than last year. The total enrollment of 167
pupils included 91 in the eighth grade and 76 in the seventh grade.
One and all came to the initial meeting to nominate officers for the student
council. A hurry and flurry developed as the campaign managers scooted about getting
the list of 'Who votes for Whoms.' After the election ballots were counted, the tol
lowing people were declared elected:
President . . . . . .Wayne Burton

All felt very proud
as the school went without
tardinass for a whole
Junior H1ghers at-
tended lecturer at the
High School and enjoyed
them a lot.
The eighth grade
played host at a Welcome
Dance, October 27, in
honor of the seventh
graders. Fun, laughter,
and galety headlined the
program for the evening.
Movies are a treat, and especially so in school. The seventh and eighth grade
social science groups have been seeing 'Brazil,W 'Columbus,' 'Frontier Woman,W and
On December 13, Margaret Ann Yocum carried through one or her 'bra1nstorms.'
With the help of David Kaechele, Kan Hunt, and Merle Rewalt, we had a talent show. To
start things off, the curtain fell down. One of the special numbers was Ralph Boa and
his accordian CMan, can he play!!! Quite a few singers participated. Other features
were a magician act and a mind-reading stunt.
Boys were aligned against girls for a bond and stamp contest. The boys won so
the girls racked their brains to think of some simply super-party ideas.
It was held in the gym of the Griswold Auditorium. Everyone came all dressed in
their best bib and tucker. In one dance the girls threw their shoes and the boys that
caught the shoe tried to find the girl and than danced with her. Pop and candy bars
were sold between dances.
Winter came in two ways on December 22, outside the wintery winds did blow, but
inside friendship and fun was the order of the day as Mrs. Winter led in the singing
of carols. The 8B's then gave e play entitled 'Little Red Riding Hood.' Betty Slot-
man enacted the role of
mme Red Rim HM
and Jackie Alcock drama-
tized the wolf. The play
was in poetic form and
very amusing. All the
rooms were -decked with
trees and tinsel for the
Christmas Party. Food,
lots of it, and yummy,
too, followed the party.

The Junior High Girl Scouts have been having fun and have been busy too! The
leader is Mrs. Peet and second in command is Mrs. Nichols.
Early in the fall the group went to Mrs. Peet's cottage on Gun Lake, where
the girls cooked their own dinner and ate it out-of-doors. Following the meal,
the ,members elected the following officers: president-Audrey Meyersg vice-presi-
dent, Gwen Rosser, secretary, Joy Olcottg treasurer, Esther Cook, and scribes,
Reva Pickett and Genevieve Krotz. Later the Girl Scouts visited the Rehabilita

following the book display. The dinner was given by the Business end Professional
Women and afterwards the librarian from the Kellogg Foundation told stories.
At Christmas time the Troop sang carols at the Rehabilitation Center. Music
books and sheet music were presents from the group.
The shortage lof toys provided the girls with another opportunity for doing
constructive work. They collected and repaired many toys which they gave to needy
The eighth grade Girl Scout troop entertained the P. T. A., February 13.
After some delay, the girls decided to present a Gay-Nlneties Revue and diligent-
ly worked during the short time of preparation. You recall, don't you, the spec-
tacle of dames scurrying about in bustles and trousers?
The Revue was called 'In the Good Old Deys.' The numbers were NCall Me Up
Some Rainy Afternoon,' 'How 'ya Gonna Keep 'em Down on the Farm,W 'Say, Young
Feller, Where'd You Get That Girl,' and 'Daisy.' Mrs. Hoffman accompanied them
on the piano. Afterwards, the troop served tasty refreshments to their guests.

December is a month of snow, a sleigh-ride was planned and carried out. After
the brisk ride came the refreshments of hot cocoa and doughnuts, which were
served at the Legion hall. Oh! boy! fYou might even be able to dunk them.l
Meeting time is every Monday night at 7:00 o'clock at the Legion hell.
This troop was very industrious during the winter as they gathered waste paper
and some of the boys obtained their suits from the money they earned.

The meeting place is in the Presbyterian Church.

In the fall of 'Ll we entered Allegan High over 120 strong. As
all classes before us, we were green, but under the guiding hand of
the Seniors we sailed along. They gave us a Lelcome Party and we
tried to show our thanks by giving them a Farewell Party on April 2b.
A dues-contest between home rooms was used as a means of earning money
to meet the expenses of the big event. committees for the dance were
as follows: refreshments, Dean Ferris and Dean McLaughling decor-
ations, Eleanor Long, Joan Allen, and Margie Lee Luna, entertainment,
Jack Mclntire. A NStardustN theme was carried out in the decorations.
Officers for the year were: president, Jack Mclntireg vice-
president, Margie Lee Luna: treasurer, Kenneth Chamberlain: secretary,
Jane Ann Powers, and advisor, Mr. Lauth.
We started our sophomore year by electing officers as follows:
president, Ray Flynn: vice-president, Kenneth Wells, secretary, Fred
Bindemanng treasurer, Marion Young: and advisor, Mrs. Cheney. In
January we gave a dance to help the dues-drive. This was a success
under the guidance of the following committees: decorations and ad-
vertising, Margie Lee Lune and Eleanor Long, refreshments, Mary Ellen
Cavanaugh, Dean McLaughlin, Joan Allen, and Dean Ferris. Late in the
year, because of the war, we had to rearrange our schedules. The ex-
perience was new for all of us.
September, l9L3, and back we came to good old Allegan High as
Jolly Juniors. The first thing of importance was the election of
these officers: president, Dean McLaughlin, vice-president, Mary
Ellen Cavanaughg secretary, Louise Terry, treasurer, Margaret Anne
Kaecheleg and advisors, Miss Witner and Mr. Stauffer.
Our Junior Play, 'Spring Fever,N was so successful, that it was
the only project we needed to undertake for the financing of the
Betty Lange, social chairman, took charge of planning the annual
affair, with her group she appointed the following committee chairmen:
decorations, Mary Rockwell, floor show, Muriel Wetmore: orchestra,
Joan Allen: food, Louise Terry: and invitations and programs, Eleanor
Long and Margie Lee Luna. The Pan-American theme was carried out in
the decorations and programs. The banquet was held May 12 in the
Griswold Auditorium, with a very fine orchestra furnishing the music
September, l9bL . . . Sophisticated Seniors. Our ranks had
fallen to about ninety, and we felt anything but sophisticated . . .
and the thought that uThis is our lest year' brought on a rather queer
feeling. The fact that the Senior Play, WHeart Trouble,n was a smash-
ing hit lifted our spirits no end. On February 1, five of our boys,
Bernard Mankin, William Hileski, Walter Garrett, Ogden Hotchkiss, and
Kenneth Wells joined the armed services.
As a fitting climax to our high school days, the Baccalaureate
Service was held June 3, and Commencement exercises on June 7.
