Vocational classes are always popular at AlWood. There were 34 beginners in Typing this year. Mr. Hancock’s Ag boys meet in the classroom or. certain days of the week and spend the rest of their time in the Ag Shop building hog huts and repairing machinery.
The Manual Arts Classes under Mr. Hainline keep busy making articles of furniture and refinishing furniture of various types. They learn to read and draw blueprints as well as how to run a lathe and saw.The Library Club is a new organization at school this year. The members claim reading as one of their favorite hobbies and meet regularly to discuss books, exchange ideas and make attractive displays for the bulletin board and library office. Mrs. Anderson is librarian and the members of the Library Club serve her as assistants.

The AlWood F.F.A. began in 1948 when Alpha and Wood-hull were consolidated. There were 31 charter members. The 1951 Boar Sale was held in the bus shed on October 23. The following pages depict in part the activities of the F.F.A. during 1951.

Here is a common scene in the Ag. II and III. These boys are practicing Parliamentary Procedure with Carl Nelson presiding over the meeting and Max Davison discussing a motion. Others in the picture are Virgil Spivey, Vernon Spivey, Pat Kness, Richard Lundeen, Alan Petersen, John Bybee, Wesley White, Neal Larson, Owen Polousky, and Richard Underwood.
The second annual AlWood F.F.A. Boar Sale and show was held October 23, 1951, in the AlWood bus garage at Woodhull. Dwayne Wind had the champion Duroc boar in the sale. Maurice DeSutter, Jr., had the champion boar in the Hampshire breed. The top boar of the sale was sold by Eldon Poppy for $166. The average price in the Duroc division was $87.50 and the average for the Hampshires was $127.50.Each year one Senior F.F.A. boy is chosen to receive the DeKalb award. He is chosen by the local underclassmen. This award is based on F.F.A. work, social activities, and church work. Maurice DeSutter was Vice-President of the AlWood F.F.A. chapter in 1951-1952. He also participated in the activities of the Soil Conservation and Parliamentary Procedure Teams.
Parliamentary Procedure is to teach boys how to carry on a business meeting properly. In contest meetings boys learn to make motions, amendments to motions, and most important, to discuss motions and amendments. There are five boys to a team: Presi-ent. Secretary, and three floor-group members.
On October 20, 1951, the AlWood F.F.A. Soil Conservation team went to Fulton, 111., to compete in the Moline Area Soil Conservation Contest. This team consisted of: Alan Petersen, Bill
Reinhardt, and Carl Nelson. They were accompanied by their advisor, William Oscar Hancock. They were given ten days to complete the plans and send them in. A banquet was held a few weeks later honoring the contestants. At this banquet the winners were announced. Aledo was the winning team.Wes White Duroc Gilts

This year our sports section will show you pictures and tell you of our athletic program for the year of 1951-1952.
In the football section you will see pictures of the players and stories of the games. The conference standing and statistics are also given. You will also see group dress pictures and the tabulation of points made by each player and the letter or numerals earned.
In the basketball section you will see pictures of players and game shots and we also introduce you to them and the coach. We also show you a picture of the faithful unseen workers, the managers, plus game statistics and personal player's averages.
Not to be forgotten are the Cheerleaders- -all seven of them. To Deed, Marg, Mary, Jean, Peg, Shirley and Marty go our thanks for a superb job. They've been on the job at all the games, yelling fully as loud during the losing games as when we're far in the lead. On them stands the tremendous job of developing school spirit and this past year is testimony to a successful job.
The final section tells about Sports Education. You will see how our boys keep in trim.
I am sure that these pages will bring back memories of 1951-1952 athletics in years to come.

During the 1951-1952 season, Alwood fans had just reason to be proud of the Sophomore Squad. They went down to defeat only once, at Orion on January 8. Most of the other games were won with a large margin. The Sophomores show promise of being a crack varsity in a year or two and should show us some real basketball before they graduate.

A class of many talents is the Class of '55,
And thru this will and testament, our memory will stay alive To that happy group of juniors who step up to our spot To try to fill the assets of our snappy little lot.
Before we start the give-away we want to thank the staff;
To the AHS faculty we direct this epitaph:
May you rest in peace, you weary souls, for though you smile to see us go.
The last laugh's with us, for another class on your shoulders we bestow. Thanks, too, to our superintendent, our principal, Chief Mate,
For their patience (and their sympathy! ) when we skipped or came in late.
The golden throat of Carol to Frances we pass on.
While Roberts gets the sporting skill of Krueger, our senior amazon.
Perry, Barton, Caulkins, and Beck leave behind this little threat:
That next year's team--whatever the sport--should strive for the records we set. Janet, Lucille, and Marcia stack their brains in one big pile To raise the junior's records in the scholastic file.
Those shy guys. Palm and George, plus Johnson
Leave reserved and quiet attitudes to Norberg and Swanson.
Diffenbaugh leaves his lanky frame to Evrard and Erlandson, who can match it, While Willett and Rich give their track ability to any who can catch it. "Pepsodent smile" Doris gives her pearls to any one Who needs to smile and to have a lot of fun.
From Thulin to Harroun goes the help the teams need.
While to Taylor goes Bergstrom's driving and speed.
Cynthia gives the pin for "clothes" to that junior Barb Lee While Setterdahl takes it for the boys from Harry, tall and free.
Morland and Underwood leave all their fooling 'round
To Neer and those who chance to use it, their teachers to astound.
Mar and Wanda leave cheering to Barb and Jo To lead the Aces as they ever onward go.
Janice gets the smile that Jewneel and Shirley are giving out.
While our own Joyce Ossian leaves drawings to any artists about.
Carolee and Lucille refuse to part with Bill and Jim, their men.
But they hear the boys are fickle, so they plan to build a pen.
From Barb and Dolly, personality Leone and Sue will take And Cathcart deposits his sleepiness on Willett, who can not stay awake. Janice, Marian, Joyce, and Carolee, the "one-man" gals of the class.
Give their trueness to Sharon McMeekan, and any other faithful lass.
Betty gives her smallness to Lois, the junior tot.
While Lucille gets Cynthia's poise, of which she has a lot.
Bill lends his presidency to Dennis, to whom high honors will fly,
Paul leaves his big bass to Scott, a happy guy.
Ruby, Janet, Palm, among the stars of the Senior Class play.
Leave their vacancies to be fulfilled by new stars of a future day.
Bonnie gets the cheerfulness that Phyllis now has.
And Marlene gives to Sandra her ability to jazz.
Leland passes along his fun
To guys like Plunkett and Magnus son.
We gals will the charm of our devilish, good-looking guys
to Frenell, Malcolm, Baird, and Brown, who will strive to be just as wise.
We've gone through all the talents of the members of our class;
Above our list of geniuses no others can surpass.
We think we're 'bout the greatest bunch that's gone through AHS,
But elders seem to shake their heads and say, "Just like the rest!"
