THE ALWOOD ALBUM
PRESENTED BY THE SENIOR CLASS 1960
ALWOOD HIGH SCHOOL
WOODHULL. ILLINOISWe of AlWood are fortunate that our community is situated in the heart of America. Ours is primarily an agricultural area--few of us are not within sight of the familiar and essential cornfield. Appropriately, AlWood is a member of the eight-school Cornbelt Conference.
Yet. we are near enough to large cities to be affected by the manufacturing industries.
And ours is a land of frequent and violent weatner changes. We are truly aware of the coming of the seasons.
In this AlWood Album we present life at AlWood High School in 1959-1960--who we are, what we do and where we do it.

3REGARDLESS OF SEASON THESE FOLKS . . .
BOARD OF EDUCATION: Dave Swanson, Richard Bailey, John Weech (Secretary), Ben Downs (President), Dave Edmund, Lester Swihart, Ralph Rice.
Our board members and our school treasurer, Anna Padavich. are not often seen around school during our actual working day. However, they are very important to our school operation.
Members of the board are seven men actively engaged in the business of farming. They represent all four comers as well as the center, of our school district.
Many hours are spent by the board members on school problems. Some of them attended school board conventions to find out about school planning elsewhere and how to prepare students best for the demands of the present-day world.

The school year 1959-60 marks the completion of twelve years of operation for the AlWood Unit. Therefore, this year’s graduating class has the distinction of being the class which began its education in the first grade at the time of the formation of the AlWood Schools.
History books will record the achievements of our country in striving for world peace and international understanding, but this book will record the history of a significant year of our life spent in the AlWood Schools. Consequently, we are indebted to the Editor, her staff, and advisor for their efforts in planning and preparing this year’s AlWood Annual.
For years to come we will be turning the pages of this book refreshing our memories of our school activities.

DON METZGER PRINCIPAL
. . . M.A. from U. of 111. . . . one daughter . . . enjoys spectator sports and painting (with a four-inch brush).
From the time a student enters AlWood High until he graduates, many lasting friendships, experiences, and much knowledge have been gained.
We urge all students to take full advantage of the excellent facilities which the AlWood Community has provided for you and the sincere attempt of every faculty member to maintain a high quality of instruction and guidance.
To the seniors who are graduating, we trust you will become not only the THINKING men and women, but the ACTING men and women of tomorrow.

10CURRICULUM INCLUDES ENGLISH AND LATIN
Mrs. McGaughy ready to show a film to English IV
This year both Latin 1 and II were offered to students. This stresses the increase of interest and importance in the language field. The Latin students were amazed when they discovered how many of our English words actually come from Latin. The first-year students spent much of the school year learning the mechanics of Latin. In the second-year classes the twelve labors of Hercules and the Gallic wars of Caesar were studied.
The English department has worked together very closely this year. All of the teachers, especially in high school, have established a set of standards by which to teach.
Tape recordings and film strips have served as study aids for the classes.
Each student is required to read at least six books a year and report on them. He is encouraged to read challenging material. As research is necessary for English classwork, a special orientation session to acquaint freshmen with the library has been introduced. All seniors are required to write one research paper.
We at AlWood are proud of the advancements that have been made in our English and Latin departments.
Sophomores preparing to read a play Conjugating verbs in LatinMATH, SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES
Freshmen tackle Algebra I.
Our math department is growing to provide the necessary mathematics for engineering. Four years of math are now available--algebra I, geometry, advanced algebra and trigonometry, and college algebra and solid geometry.
The algebra I and geometry lay the basic foundation of mathematical knowledge for the advanced two years of math. From these last two years of math come the engineers and physicists of AlWood. Of the students who have taken advantage of the fourth year of math, 36 per cent have gone into engineering study at colleges or universities.
The science department is offering general science, biology, chemistry and physics.
General science covers the three basic sciences--biology, chemistry, and physics. Biology involves the study of plants and animals, and physiology. Dissecting animals is a favorite sport here.
Chemistry concerns the study of the elements and how they combine. Valences give our future chemists present headaches. Physics is the study of energy and how it is measured, used, and produced in our everyday life.
Our social studies department consists of American problems, world history, and U.S. history. In these courses we study the politics, economics, history and government of our own and other countries.
Biologists seem interested.
Mr. Miller's history class learns that new history is being made every day.
STATEMUSIC, P. E. AND VOCATIONAL CLASSES
Steve is happy in industrial arts! Soil testing in ag class.
Vocational education classes available at AlWood are industrial arts, agriculture, home economics, and business education.
Agriculture class content here would reveal our approximate geographical location as being in the corn, hog, and cattle feeding section of the United States. Again, we are typically mid western.
Music is very popular here. About 60 per cent of the entire student body is in eitherbandor chorus or both.
Physical education class every day is a must for every student at AlWood High, except for a medical excuse.
Karolyn balances her debits and credits in bookkeeping.
A small group can make music as well as a large one, if they practice.
Girls' P.E. is no sissy affair here.STANDING: Mr. Behnke--Adviser, Karen Swanson, Pat Clarke, Judy Cathcart, Caroline Pople, Karo-lyn Watters, Judy Bowman, Nancy Miller, Mrs. Swanson--Adviser. SEATED: Diane Bodeen, Joan Briggs, Janet McLaughlin, Susan Johnson, Marilyn Barlow, Florence Johnson.
Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Service. These are the bases on which National Honor Society members are chosen. They are selected by the faculty from the junior and senior classes after the end of the first semester each year. Later the new members are inducted in an assembly ceremony.

On April 8. 1960, the Junior Class presented "Little Women" adapted from the immortal novel by Louisa May Alcott and directed by Mrs. Ruth Bloomberg. To add reality to the setting, the entire cast was costumed in fashions similar to those worn in the early 1860's--the time at which the story takes place.

The AlWood football team started its first practice the day school started. There were eight lettermen and one regular returning from the previous year.
The Aces went to ROVA for the first game of the season. AlWood came out on the losing end with a score of 14-8.
On September 25, the AlWood gridders entertained Sherrard at the home field. This time the Aces were ready to go as they toppled Sherrard by a score of 14-6.
The next game of the season was with Rockridge.
The Aces did not seem prepared for this game. Rockridge rolled to an 18-7 victory.

Next AlWood traveled to Joy, where they displayed their true power. The Aces moved down the field five times for their touchdowns. AlWood ended with a victory of 27-0.
On October 16, AlWood met its rival Orion. The score ended in a defeat for AlWood by a 20 point margin. The score, however, is deceiving. AlWood scored first and then Orion. From then until the fourth quarter no one scored. It was
then that Orion rallied and won the game with three more touchdowns.
The homecoming game with Cambridge was a success. The night was dreary with rain most of the time, but the Aces again rolled to a 12-6 victory.
The Aces lost the last two games to Winola and Atkinson.

SPIRITED ACES ARE SUCCESSFUL
AlWood’s basketball season began where the football season's weather left off--under a very cloudy overcast. The Aces dropped their first four contests, a conference game with Rockridge included.
The bad weather behind them, the boys caught fire and won their next three games. This spurt was highlighted with a 50-48 comeback victory over powerful Winola.
The Aces opened their Cornbelt Tourney title defense with a 40-38 victory over Atkinson. After losing to Sherrard in the semi-finals, AlWood brought the third place trophy home with a 31-25 conquest of Rockridge.
The second half of the season was initiated with a 41-34 edging of Atkinson. The next two games were dropped to Monmouth and Sherrard respectively. The Sherrard battle proved to be a 51-48 thriller.

AlWood's 44-40 hazing of Winola brought the college students home for the week-end play-off with Sherrard. The trips were in vain; not only did the Aces drop a 55-35 decision to the Tigers, but they finished the regular season with losses to Orion and ROVA.
AlWood started the regional trail correctly with a 48-37 romp over Joy. This was great, but the oncoming
path seemed tragic. The Aces now had to play the Tournament favorite, Aledo. Containing more spirit than two teams usually have, the Aces upset powerful Aledo, 60-54.
Coach Behnke's Aces now had to conquer host Sherrard to advance to the Moline Sectional. After a barnburning regulation period topped with an overtime, the Tigers emerged as the champ. The 46-42 loss automatically shut down the AlWood basketball machine for another year.

Also, in October we had a big spectacular homecoming bonfire. Cheerleader Karolyn Watters is in the foreground.
THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN EVERY DAY
November brought Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie! Kay Murdock, our tiny secretary with the big appetite, admires it.
Practicing became the hobby during February for ensemble groups like this quartet composed of Nancy Miller, Marilyn Barlow, Karen Swanson, Susan Johnson, and Pat Clarke, accompanist.

A meeting of the old and new members of the Student Council at the LeClaire Hotel in Moline last spring started the ball rolling toward better-than-ever student government. The Council planned several projects for the year 1959-60.
The Council attempted to help the freshman class find its place in the high school with a Freshman Orientation Program. Mr. E.H. Case, Director of College and University Relations for John Deere and Company, gave an interesting address on "Your High School Record," the theme for the evening.
Several assembly programs, including a safe-driving demonstration, a talk on India by Mr. Dean Fischer, and a fire hazard show were sponsored by the Council. As last year, AlWood traded talent and wit with Galva High School for a very enjoyable exchange assembly.
Other projects supported by the Council included: an extra-curricular activities point system, a student-faculty committee, Dress-Up Day, and bringing a foreign exchange student to AlWood.

48VICTORY SETS PACE FOR HOMECOMING
The 1959 Homecoming, sponsored by the Student Council, was a tremendous success. Everyone in the school became engrossed in the preparations and the excitement slowly mounted.
The Homecoming really got under way on Thursday night when the organizations presented pep skits. The varsity cheerleaders won first prize as judged by some of the teachers. At the bonfire, Mr. Metzger announced the royalty. The queen, Shirley Munson, and the king, Jim Krueger, climbed aboard the royal convertible and led the snake dance downtown.
Our luck with the perfect weather didn't hold on Friday, but we beat Cambridge in spite of the rain.
To the music of the Royaltones, the alumnae and the students danced the evening away. The 1959 AlWood Homecoming was a long-to-be-remembered event.

The Chorus started their activities this year with a very successful minstrel show. At Christmas they joined with all the elementary and junior high pupils to put on an impressive community Christmas program. The harmonizing of about six hundred voices, under the direction of Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Fischer, proved to be a stupendous under-
taking which resulted in a thrilling performance for both audience and singers.
Spring found them busy practicing for contests. Many chorus members took part in programs of church and community groups during the year and also sang in their church choirs.

G.A.A. is an organization that stimulates the feminine instinct to turn to the fun and exercise of sports. In the fall, the girls go on hikes and play soccer. In the winter they play basketball, go bowling, and do modern dancing.
In spring the girls play baseball and go on more hikes.
The G.A.A. put on a skit for homecoming entitled "Binky’s Beatnik Coffee Shop." They sponsored a sock hop after the game with Orion, December 11, and sold candy during December to make money.

CHEERS THE TEAM,
The Pep Club this year has worked to carry out its purpose of promoting school spirit. The members have passed out programs at basketball games, sold advance bus tickets, and staunchly supported our teams. The club as a whole has had the conference banners cleaned and sent the cheerleaders to camp. As a result of its diligence, the club won second place for its skit on the night before Homecoming. The club's cooperativeness and willingness to spread new cheers helped to give AlWood its fine spirit.

The AlWood Album--I960--is completed. As we of the staff proudly hold our copies, we remember how much effort we put into the production of the Album. Now we know the pleasure of seeing our ideas in print, the pride resulting from a job well done.
For months we worried, worked a little faster, and then worried again. Somehow, lost pictures were found, deadlines were met, mistakes were corrected at the last moment, and the aspirin supply wasn't quite exhausted.
We thank the faculty for their cooperation and interest in our yearbook.
Mr. Lenox has done a fine job as our photographer. We appreciate his services and suggestions very much.
Finally, we extend our greatest thanks to Mrs. Swanson. For six years she has efficiently, competently, and interestedly guided the editors and staffs of AlWood yearbooks.
May this Album serve to remind the Seniors of their last year at AlWood, and all of us of an important high school year.
--Nancy Miller, Editor
Finally, l wish to thank the Album staff members, who have done their part well, both in actual production and in selling the Album. They have attempted to portray life in a typical midwestern high school, and have had the backing of a very interested community.
Dorothy Swanson, Advisor
