' Q wed Fdhws' 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 Wsquillion' for the parade of absentees and tardies. Besides that is 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 Bishton, an accomodating person but withal accountant, typist, really you may well say-fsctotum. For five years she has cheerf ll u y an- swered the diversity of questions that four-hundred 'teensters' can devise. And so to controllers, plus the overseers of A. H. S., add the students for the spice of life. . . there you have it, the combination that makes Allegan High as super as it is. 0 Ll lu' Qvdy' n'n'5' , X Q: D O0 September ss 0 Fw Sauce' 'cg io fs- PfWAQCHA7 f T 01325 4047 op JUVKHI RIQQRI ll"E ull' 5" ll 2.

"W MJ 'T A 9 4 M05 an evous Zuma 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 throughout. 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.

The first half of this game was ngive and taken with neither team in a good position to score. hut Zeeland reached our 20-yard line in the early stages of the engagement. with the start of the second half, we grabbed the lead when Wells ran A3 yards for the Tigers' only touchdown. Spidel kicked the extra point, with Ferris holding. Lousma, of Zeeland, broke away and it looked as if he were cer- 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. Allegan copped their last tilt of the season from Paw Paw by the score of 7 to b. During the first half of the game the hedskins were on the warpath. Our boys weren't able to do much, they just started. As a result, quarter but failed to at the intermission. quarter but they were ever, they scaled the Wells and Ferris, and Paw Paw struck pay dirt about midway make the conversion, but they were out Allegan appeared a little stronger still unable to score.

Spidel kicked the extra point, with Ferris holding, so the Tigers forged ahead,7 to 6. The classic ended with Paw Paw filling the air with futile passes, for none of them were completed. 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. I! Top Row: L. to R.: Jerry Gilpin, Ray Fuller.

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.

Wells galloped 55 yards on sweet revenge for the 13-0 in the initial encounter. up 2h points while holding the kick-off before being stopped. Four plays were all the Cubs needed for their first tally. The conversion failed. Plainwell then tried to advance the ball but couldn't make the necessary yardage. The next time Wells carried the ball, he romped for 25 yards. Russ Gates proceeded to the Blue and White's two yard line and Wells skirted right and for the second touchdown to make the count 12-O. Neither team could score in the second quarter, but in the third canto Clyde Wells negotiated another touchdown. Toby Terry received a pass from Eugene Miller in the fourth quarter to achieve Allegan's fourth and last touchdown. X After practicing for three weeks, Mr. O'Connor announced that the junior-high team would play the freshmen, October 10. The boys lined up to receive the ball, the whistle blew, and the opponents kicked off. someone on our team snatched the pigskin and we raced down the field, un- 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. 4 -5 ouow HW Vedder 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. So here we bid a fond adleu to the bashful, quiet, little fresh- HIGH.

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. Nbw at the halfway mark, scholastioelly, we are looking forward to t wo more years of fun and work with our fellow classmates of Allegan High.

Directing the group this year are Betty Truax, presldentg Irene Bolenbaugh, vice presldentg Betty White, treas- ugerg and Sue Hettinger, secretary, Miss Druckenmiller has been their a visor. The club has had varied programs ,including biographies, book re- views, end discussions of interesting topics. 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 mid-winter conference held at Muskegon in February. The culmination ot their social activities was a party, March 23, planned Jointly by the G. R.'s and Hi-Y's.

Mr. Moffett and four boys Dean Ferris, Dean McLaughlin, John Davis, and Fred Bindemann, agreed to take charge of the group. We have 23 paid- up members to date. The purpose of the H1-Y is 'to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian cheracter.' We had our formal and informal initiations late in October. Fred Bindemann and James Fairfield represented the H1-Y at the Older Boys' Conference in Owosso, Michigan. They were sponsored by Rotary. After the Christmas vacation, Coach Otis gave us an informal talk on sportsmanship. Mr. Harold Weston discussed social-welfare work as a career at a meeting in February. We played two- basketball games with the F. F. A., winning them both, 37-27, and 20-19. Besides these activities we played basketball after each meeting. The high-light of our social relationships was the Hi-Y--G. R. party on March 23. Our treasury expanded quite rapidly during the winter. We derived funds from the sale of 'cokes' at several basketball games. John Davis, Eugene Miller, Bob Jenks, and Bill Dalman attended the tulip district meeting at Holland, April 18. Our officers are: president, John Davisg vice president, Paul Jen- sen, secretary, John Miller, treasurer, Carroll Allen, advisors, Mr. Moffett, Mr. Rewalt, Mr. Mulreadyg program committee, Bill Dalmen, Bob Jenks. af GF" QA fr 45G'f,1i9'3P V3 ' of NWN 1221?

The play selected was the romantic comedy, 'Heart Troub1e.' 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 October. 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 coaching. 47 xsf Za, f A Q vu aww, .W 6 ai' 1 c ccmcucrh era, 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 l 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 Tigers. 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 h 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 in Al1egan's favor. Unfortunately, curing but 3 points to Hastings' 10. LO-35 score. Mclntlre had 19 points Saxons. outsmarted their foes, and the record was 32-30 the Tigers slumped in the final 8 minutes, se- The Brozak clan finished on the long and of a for the Tiger team, while Keeler had 10 for the The succeeding game marked the opening of the Ottawa-Allegan Tourney. Allegan drew Plainwell and Zeeland was matche d with Otsego. Avenging an earlier defeat, the Tigers trounced the Plainwell team Ll 31 Th - . e home crew clicked from the start in handcuffing the Terry-coached players, and at 1 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 Tigers clashed with Zeeland in the finals, but somehow the Tigers failed to d Th h ight of the register a point in the first quarter, while Zeeland collecte 9. e e visiting team again proved too difficult a handicap for the tiring Tigers, who trail- ed. 35-21, when the final horn sounded. Chamberlain had lO markers for the confer- ence champs. The league trophy was then awarded to the victorious Chicks. The windup of the regular season set the stage for the District Class B. Tourna- hich 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. The first canto of the combat was a give-and-take affair with the Orange and 1 kl h ad 10 9 But in the next session the Grand Rapids outfit could not locate B ac a e - . the hoop for more than one tally, while Allegan upped the score at the half, 21-10. h fl 1 un sounded The Tigers turned on the heat after the intermission and when t e na g they were on top, LO-26. Mclntlre garnered 13 points for his aggregationzon the fol- lowing night the Otis clan battled East Grand Rapids for the district crown. This tilt promised to be a thriller and proved to be just that, as the first session ended 9-9. I the next eriod the Orange and Black began to more the ball around more H P effectively, and as a result, the score at half-time was 17-15 in their favor. The -18. With two Tigers proceeded to increase their margin over the Pioneers to 23 minutes left to play, however, the count was just 2h-25 in our credit. Happily, a 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. Too Row L. to R.: Carroll Allen, Dean Eclsughlin, Assistant Coach, Mr. Nulready.

First new L. no R.: Deen Ferris, Jack melauire, Walter Gar- rett, Bud Msnkin, Ray Flynn, Mickey Woolf, Julius Sisson. 1 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.

The young Tigers won their first tilt, Dec. 19, by overpowering Dowagiac, 25-17. Victory No. 2 came on Dec. 22 when Allegan drubbed the tall Zeeland clan, 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, 27-21, although the Cubs were pacing their opponents, 21-19, at the end of three quarters of play. Eager for revenge, the Otsego reserves on Jan. 26, nevertheless, received their second defeat at the hands of the Cubs, 29-18. Bang, the Cubs' second battle with the Plainwell team, Feb. 2, developed in to a rout. For a few moments we matched point for point, but wllted rapidly to lose out , 107-23- Bang, bang! Paw Paw edged the reserves here, Feb. 6, 27-2L, in a hard- fought encounter. Bang, bang, bang! The Allegan seconds trailed all the way and were defeat- ed by Hastings, 19-13, on Feb. 10. At last Fortune smiled again and the Tiger reserves copped the first game in the Ottawa-Allegan tournament, when they beat Plainwell, 27-19, on Feb. 13. 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, Feb. 23, by squeezing out a 25-2b win. Back rowg J, Meyer, J. Funtley, B. Rewalt, J. Clark, 1. Bclenhaugh, J. Neyer, H.

Veteran members participated in this gala event. ...f 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.

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. 1 's I .N Lrg 'Q r 1xwTx My l4'1,:-:g,9f,., 9' 45225 'K -'Af mg-I A , .

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. 5th Row: L to R: R.

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 high school. 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 spirit. eta Q F!

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. cwsa mowscn . ...we msec' u 3 Forty eager boys answered Coach Otis' call for baseball candidates this spring.

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 Vice-President . . . .Bruce Newman Secretary . . . . .Virginia Johnson Treasurer . . . . . Jerry Stone Standing: James Cyrus, Paul Elben, David Kaechele, George DeLano. Sitting: Barbara Oisten, Kenneth Hunt, Kathryn Myers, Merle Reualt, Katherine LnForge, Dale Richardson, Gwendolyn Rosser. All felt very proud as the school went without tardinass for a whole week!! 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 'Daniel Boone.' 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. Standing: Max Hale, Douglas Loveday.

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 tion Center on Pine Lake, where wer veterans are learning new skills and occupa- tions. Another important date in the scouting schedule was an invitation to dinner 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 children. 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.

Since 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. Leader Alden White meets with his troop on Tuesdays. This group was also busy during the winter, with skiing and ice skating as favorite forms of rec- reation. These boys were active during March, when they had a hike and cut timber for a ten-foot tower. The structure was erected in five minutes by the boys at a demonstration in the high school gym, April 17. Cub and Boy Scouts exhibited their skill at the rally. The meeting place is in the Presbyterian Church. Leader Ken Walsworth calls the Monday meeting of Troop 93 at the Congra- gational Church to order. These are warm-weather boys, as they are working on a camp site on land that was given them by Armintrouts. It is on the road to Kalamazoo. They participated in the Boy Scout rally and the First-Aid meet at Holland April 20. Track Row: James Meyer, Charles Butler, Peter Winter, James Dedrich, Fobert Terry, dlbert Oisten, John Clark.

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 Junior-Senior Banquet. 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 for dancing. 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. Standing: Kiss Druckenmiller and Hr. Pfulr--ray, Advisors.
