nderstood our troubles,
endered a helping hand,
aid our bills,

espected our "adulthood",
ndured long, tiring hours waiting up for us,
ever ceased to wonder about us,

A little stream runs on and on, following its never ending course, just as
the time flows forever with nothing to stop it. This past year is nothing more
than a mere ripple in the stream of time. But it is these millions of ripples
that made up the past, present, and future. And in each of these ripples are
the individuals, the workings of time.
It is in the pages of this book that the memories of one mere ripple are
recorded, so that we may recall, someday, when we've traveled downstream,
this one little ripple which plays so great a part in keeping the stream flowing
along the right course.

Wayne "Windy" Clark,
varsity line coach, from
Alma College where he re-
ceived honors for all MIAA
and Les Gratton, back-
field coach. Gratton was
leading punter in state and
fourth in nation. This is
their first year of coaching
Vagner f67j scampers forty yards for touchdown after receiving
ten yard pass from Mitchell.
During the l951 football season, the Panthers
were led by 12 seniors and a host of under-
classmen, to a record of Z wins, 2 ties, and
Tasting defeat in their first two games
against two of the better class B teams, Tra-
verse City and St. Johns by identical scores of
14-0, the Panthers came back with a 7-7 tie
with the favored Ithaca Yellow Jackets. More
than 2, O00 homecoming fans saw the Panthers
defeated by a strong Mt. Pleasant team, 40-13,
in a game filled with thrills from the opening
minutes till the final gun. The Panthers then
roared back to a 7-6 win over Flint Tech. and
a 19-0 homecoming spoiler over Fremont. After
being defeated by Grand Haven, 33-15, the
Panthers ended their season with a 0-0 dead-
lock with highly rated Cadillac.

Though having onbfa 3-15 record dns season,the Panthers can.boastthatthey played
one of the hardest schedules in the stateg giving such teams as class "A" Midland, Grand
Rapids Creston, Owosso and strong St. Johns and Flint Tech in class "B", and powerful
St. Louis of Class "C" fame, close fights every time. Dale Narragon proved able to score
against some of the tallest pivot men in the state and Den Patterson and Junior Mailand at
forward position did most of Alma's rebounding. Bruce Gardner, Senior, and Sophomore
Sarn King played good balL and proved able to score, also.
Even with a losing season the students stuck by the team, knowing that some day Alma
will be in a conference and be able to play teams of its own caliber.
