Fred Willson, Class President
The following word-picture of our president is for the benefit of the two
for could it be four?j students at Amundsen who don't know him. His most
outstanding feature is his extremely red hair Cwhich reliable witnesses say, has
been wavy for exactly one-and-a-half years, though Fred vows it was always
that way except that he plastered itl : along with the red hair Fred has bluish-
green eves, Weighs 156, and is five feet, nine inches in height.
And there you have the boy we remember as the one who so good-naturedly
entertained us by playing the piano in the assembly hall practically every other
period during the first week of the semester. And how he does pound those
ivories!! It's his hobby, favorite pastime, and chosen vocation Cwants to be an
orchestra leader-another Eddie Duchinj. Incidentally, Fred's pet peeve is
being asked to play songs he doesn't know, so we advise you to play safe and
request Lazy Rhapsody , which is his favorite.
Also an outstanding Amundsen athlete, Fred is a two-letter man in foot-
ball. though his favorite sport is tennis Cmiddle name is Ellsworth-Vines???J.
Quite a career as an actor has Fred left behind him: he played in Merton
of the Movies , Big Hearted Herbert , and the two French dramas. Among
his other achievements is a very high scholastic record--on the Ace List ever since
hc's been in school, and wearer of a goldxhonor society pin. At a recent Civic
Assembly Fred represented .Amundsen as the student best fitted to receive a gold
Achievement Medal, which was awarded on the basis of scholarship, character,
and civic leadership.
And that is the story of Fred Willson, who will step from the portals of
Amundsen to those of Northwestern University, where we all-sincerely hope he
will have as successful a career as hefhad in high school.
Robert McAllister, Vice-President
And now presenting Willson'5 right-hand man for is it yes-man? J,
Bob McAll?ster, our genial vice-president. His pet peeve is being congratu-
lated-maybe he's sorry he was elected. But we aren't, and hand-shaking and
offering congrats are the best ways we have of showing it.
Bob made a good vice-president, for he and his superior officer have many
things in common: he is a member of the Honor Society, stage manager of the
French play, and a member of the Dramatic Club: his favorite sport is tennis
Ctablej: and he's an accomplished pianist Cyou should hear him play chop-
sticks, the classic he plays bestj. Bob says his favorite pastime is slouching
down in nice, soft easy chairs.
But seriously, our vice-president is a highly-esteemed Amundsenite, espe-
cially in the Log office, where he performs the hard and thankless job of copy
editor. Last year Bob was a sports reporter-looks like the field of journalism
has another young aspirant. In the near future the Northwestern School of
Journalism will receive Bob and prepare him for a newspaper career.
