Marion Vallance TO THE STUDENTS: "Education is the encouragement of right habits." ' "Education is not informationg it is the ability to use information." "Education is guided growth." "Education is the teaching to do better the desirable things students will do anyhow," Whichever definition of education you choose it is most important to know that Character is the perfectly educated will and that Character and Education both have a market value.

ELEANOR RHODES . Four men and a woman who keep our school looking as as we would have it look. Necessary to any building, they are in- dispensable to the high school. Sweeping up our hastily-dropped notes, wiping fingerprints from table tops, and Carting out scuffed-in mud and dust, these five people deserve much more praise than we can give. These familiar faces, always smiling, are a part of this, our high school. We would here thank them for the many services and kindnesses performed for us during our stay at Alma high.

They have always set high examples of sportsmanship and character which they have placed in every boy working under them. Coach Vic Hicks as Athletic Director and head coach of Football, Basketball, and Track has turned out teams tops in every way. Wally Moore was his Assistant in Football, and worked with the Reserve Basketball and Golf squads. Baseball, and the Football Reserves were cared for by Ed Penner, who also aided the Basketball teams. Del Brenner looked after our Cross Country and ably assisted in Track. Tennis is coached by an Alma College player, These coaches have produced teams that are highly regarded in every sport. 36 FUUTBHH TEHHI BOTTOM, LEFT To RIGHT: Ross MARZOLF, MGR., JIM JOSLIN, PAUL SCHNEIDER, DALE NARRAGON, GORDON SMITH, VINCE SPANO, DAVE GI..AzER,JIM HAHN, Douc.

The Panthers had the real spirit and,but for numerous bad breaks and injuries, might have been unconquez-able during the course of the season. Injuries sidelined "Baldy" Narragon, 'Gordie Hyde, Bud VanAtten, Doug Grover, and Chuck Smith. Gordie Vliet missed the Traverse City game because of a 'bad knee,but most terrible of all, the dread disease of polio took the life of Dick Bainbridge. Because of the treat of polio, two games were cancelled. However, in the six games played, the Panthers won two, tied one and lost three. The season started with Traverse Citywhich ended in a scoreless tie. Then after a three weeks lay-off, Mt. Pleasant was played in the Homecoming game. The Oilers took this hard fought game 6-0. The next week, after leading three quarters of the game, the Panthers lost a heart- breaker to Bay City Handy .18-7. The following week, turning the- tables, and coming out strong in the fourth quarter, the Alma Panthers pushed past Fremont 19-13. Then, with their claws sharpened the Panthers took a good Flint Tech team 19-6. They ended their season against a very good Cadillac team and were decisively beaten 46-6. 37 vnIIsIIu suunn STANDING: BILL STUCKEY, MOR.g DON ROBINSON, DICK CooN, DAVE MCILRATHy JIM SENTES,ROSS MARZOLF, MGR.3 COACH Hlcxs.
