These people came out of
the auditorium with smiles
of enjoyment mixed with
amusement at the antics
of the players in "Seven
Near capacity crowds from
Alma and vicinity occupied
seats in the high school
auditorium on the nights of
March 26 and 27.
The cast of this Hungarian
play starred Bob Boelio as
Ilorkoy and Gretchen Toms as
Nlitzieg Doratha Hicks, Donna
Sherman, and Jan Rottschafer
played her three elder sisters
while Colleen Thompson,
Mary Gillon and Barbara
Moomey were the "y0ung
chicks" of the family,
Mother Gyurkivies was ably portrayed by
Sue Werbelow with Bob Hetzman, Kenny
Smith, and Alan Cordill as male leads.
Bob Woods as Janko and John Ludy as
Toni Teleki completed the roll call of
Mitzi, the devilish daughter
of Mrs. Gyurkivics, must
marry off her older sisters
before she, herself, can be
married to the young officer
she loves. With the help of
the officer, Ferenz Horkoy,
she successfully "marries off"
the sisters and the story ends
with a traditional "woman
gets her man" climax.
The plot of "Seven
Sister" revolves about
the old Hungarian
custom of marrying off
daughters in the order
of their ages.
On January I5 and I6 the Alma High
School ACappella Choir presented
their version of the musical oper-
etta "Down in the Valley" by
Kurt Weil. Starring in the
production were: Maynard '
Faul as Brack Weaver, :T
Joyce Norris as Q'
as the leader, Dale Hanson as
Jennie's pa, and Joe Glendenning
as the preacher. To a background
of music by the twin pianos, Jan
Rottschaffer and Carol Blanck
accompanying, the theme wove
itself about these central figures.
'i iff' as.
and I 3
The chorus, under the able direc-
tion of choir leader Robert Pratt,
sang such songs as the title tune,
"Down in the Valley", "Little
Black Train", and the spirited
square dance theme. Both perfor-
mances were well attended and
requests were made by a few of
those attending to do another
operetta in 1954.

Bill Pyle, who is without a doubt one of Alma High School's greatest athletes
is rounding out his running career this year as far as high school is concerned.
Bill has won state wide fame in both Cross-Country and Tmck. This year in
Cross-Country, Bill set a new record on every course on which he competed,
thus achieving the goal he set for himself at the beginning of the season.
Last year, during track season, Bill attained the recognition of top class
"B" miler in the State. This made him eligible to compete in the annual A. A. U.
meet at Michigan Normal in Ypsilanti. It was at this time Bill reached the
ultimate height in high school track. By winning the event, against all classes
of the top high school milers, he proved himself to be without a doubt. the top
high school miler in the State,
Bill, we members of the Senior Class take our hats off to you. We wish you
the best of luck not only in sports but in anything you strive for. You also are to
be commended for the fine example of good sportsmanship which you have set
during your high school career. We know that you will continue to do so in the
future, for this always has been and always will be one of the outstanding traits
of Alma High School athletics.

The Alma Harrier's started tneir '52 season with a meet, Friday September I9, on our own course, Winning easily
over Howell by a score of I6 to 47. Saturday, October 4, was the first big meet of the year, the Hastings Invitational,
where competition is always at its best, However, the Alma runners came through in fine shape, winning by a margin
of some 73 points.
On October 8th, we met Midland in a dual meet on our course, which was won in easy fashion. On Friday, October
loth, we challenged a fast Mt. Pleasant team and added spirit to our 1952 Homecoming festivities by out-pointing 24
to their 33,
Saturday, October 18th was the date of Alma's first invitational meet in Cross-Country. Entered were many of the
strongest class B teams in the state, but Alma once again out-distanced her competitors by some 30 points to win our
own first invitational.
Going next to the Albion Invitational with the competition keener, our margin became larger. A very high spirited
Alma team brought home the first-place trophy, winning this time by 59 I!2 points.
Moving next into the final round and the climax of the 1952 Cross-Country season at Ypsilanti, the State Meet held
a challenge for every man on the team, but each was equal to it, winning the biggest meet of the year by the biggest
margin of the year, 77 points,
The Harriers "B" squad also deserve some well-earned recognition for their fine record. They also won all of their
'52 Cross-Country meets.
In the last three years we have finished first in 25 of our 26 meets, placing second in Niles at the Albion Invitational
In these last three seasons we have taken home ten first-place trophies and one second-place trophy out of the eleven
trophies presented at the Invitational Meets.

"And now we will proceed with the exercises." Yes, there is a lot of practice on the part of the group
that goes into making a beautiful operetta such as "Dow11 in the va1ley" and "A Ballad for American, "
This group enters the state vocal music festival, sings for various organizations around the city and also
