PEGGY MATTHEWS VE Y RAW 65.4, RICHARD FLAKNE CHARLES HANSON
THE UMEGA STAFF
This being the most crucialvperiod of
Ann Arbor High School's history, the
Omega staff has worked hard all year
to turn out a yearbook which would be
worthy of the times.
Under the leadership of Peggy Mat-
thews and Charles Hanson as editors,
Avery Grant and Dick Flakne as busi-
ness managers, and Miss Duff as adviser,
the staff started work in September. Aft-
er Willard Booth's committee selected
the theme, the quotation committee, un-
der Rose Mary Marin's supervision, be-
gan work on the senior write-ups. Rose
Mary was also the recording secretary
for staff meetings, Special recognition
should be given to Marjory Hull, whose
light and efficient touch appears in
many important write-ups. She was the
general handyman of the editorial staff.
A pasting crew headed by Larry Dar-
ling inaugurated the long task of mak-
ing the "dummy" by mounting the
pictures of the numerous handsome sen-
iors. If one ventured into C-7 during the
year at any time after school hours, he
might find diligent pasters in the person
of Helen Gillette, Barbara Gibson,
Nancy Christman, Ed Schneider, or
Celia Taylor, to mention a few, skillfully
mounting photographs from the secret
files of the Omega. Throughout the year
"Jeep" Williams and his accomplice,
Bob Perrin, might be glimpsed as they
slyly snapped candids of unwary indi-
viduals. "Jeep" also took many of the
group pictures which appear in the
The advertising staff canvassed the
city for bigger and better ads, delving
into stores, factories, and organizations
previously uninvestigated. The result
was a wider representation of Ann Arbor
life. The sales of subscriptions in the
school were boosted considerably by
striking posters produced by the art staff
under Mr. Asmus's direction. It was
they, of course, who contributed the car-
toons and symbols. Dick Schenk is to be
commended on his appropriate cover
design, and Herbert Tryon for his bird's-
eye sketch of the school.
With the hearty cooperation of the
staff, the 1943 Omega was presented to
its readers in June.

MAHLON H. BUELL, Faculty Sponsor.
The school lost one of its
most prominent and respected
teachers when Miss Juva Hig-
bee died in September, 1942, in
Buffalo, New York.
Miss Higbee had been con-
nected with the University and
public schools from 1927 to
1942. The many colorful oper-
ettas which Ann Arbor High
School's choral groups present-
ed under Miss Higbee's capable
direction were always a delight-
ful feature of the year, while
A Cappella Choir and glee clubs
reached a high standard under
her baton. For thirteen years
she directed the youth chorus
for the May Festival.
The school will hold the
memory of Miss Higbee before
them for long years to come.
The sudden death of Miss
Frances Seeley on April 13th
came as a grievous shock to
both students and faculty. Be-
cause of her friendliness and
pleasing personality, hundreds
of graduates recall Miss Seeley
with much pleasure. A tireless
worker, besides teaching French
and Spanish she was for many
years co-sponsor of the Wash-
ington Club. Although we miss
her deeply, there will always be
a loving' remembrance in the
hearts of her friends as we think
of the days when Miss Seeley
worked with us.

speaking: "For once, John, you're not going

ers have opinions on our lives in the war. Will

Miss Parry: -"Students and teachers

the strongest, wealthiest, and most influential
of all the countries of the world. Can you and

In this most historic year of our country. in which world shak-
ing events have taken place and in which even more momentous
happenings will occur, it is desirable that some permanent rec-
ord be left of the contribution in the war by our high schools.
This is the undertaking for which the Omega has been desig-
nated-to show Ann Arbor High School at war.
The wartime duty of the schools is to train future citizens in
four ways: to teach them manual skills of pressing importance
in winning the war and of practical value in days to come: to
develop them physically to the point of greatest possible effi-
ciency: to provide the wholesome influences which build morale:

WUHE FUR VICTUHY
Some of us have become disconteuted. impatient
with doing nothing directly connected with the wur
efifort. Some have seen it their duty to leave school to
enter industry and have put off their education entirely
until the war is won. Others have kept at their studies,
working long hours outside of school as well. War
work. or non-essential industry that relieves an older
person for war work, has called many of us. In school.
we have been preparing for future employment in the
essential industries and for entrance into the armed
forces after graduation. Some have devoted much of
their time to voluntary contributions to the war effort.
We students have tried hard to interpret our part in
this war, and to understand what sacrifice we can make
which will best help our country. To many of us, work
has been the answer.

With Pearl Harbor, however, the school immediately changed into
a veritable pre-induction center. Courses such as electricity, radio,
and aviation science which would have shocked the old-line educa-
tors sprang up over night. The facilities of the shop were utilized
to train boys for vital war jobs after graduation. A.A.H.S. has really
made the turnover to war production.

Particularly noticeable this year have been the well-dressed girls fre-
quenting the clothing classes and the delicious odors emanating from
the foods laboratory, but not much has been said about the work of the
classes which bring about such conditions.
Students of clothing learn how to sew any stitch existing and are
given tips on how to dress well on a limited budget. The girls work on
various projects during the year to improve their abilities. The cooking
classes learn how to prepare and to serve nutritious, well-balanced meals.
It is not unusual to see boys in these classes as well as girls flearning
the culinary arts as a pre-induction adaptation to K. P.?j.
Both cooking and sewing classes give worthwhile preparation for war-
time's rationed living.

As usual, this year's Student Council proved an effective
example of sound student government. Under the direction
of Frank Ross, president, Joe Laird, vice-president, and
Mary Claire Upthegrove, secretary, the Council efficiently
administered its traditional duties with fitting pomp and
circumstance. Q See page 21.j
Particularly important this year was the Council's work
in various school activities. Its responsibities included
handling of the scrap drive, stamp sales, and maintenance
of order in an institution accelerated by war. The last
weeks of the year were devoted to the election of officers
to take up the government next year. Gray hairs will be
popular in the fall, we predict.
'flappy happy to die for emperor,
Make ,Iappy happy."
During the last two weeks in October, 1942, Ann Arbor
High students, along with boys and girls of other local
public schools, hit the road and gathered all the available
scrap around Ann Arbor and vicinity. Hose, shoes, radi-
ators, piping, old stoves, and a windmill were among the
articles gathered from basements, garages, and yards.
These enthusiastic students hurried around in teachers'
cars or Boy Scout trucks and even tramped afoot. With
the help of stimulating posters hung about the building
and a huge thermometer in the main corridor, the high
school collection exceeded fifty tons. The drive was con-
ducted under the efficient direction of Miss Frances Seeley.

ln time of war. our country desperately needs all the
resources for good which we have-our money. our
time. our intelligence and abilities. And so that we may
give freely of all these possessions. we need sound
bodies. A person in the armed services depends upon
his physical health to see him through the hardships and
perils of modern warfare. The worker in war industry
needs to be in the best physical condition to labor the
long hours which he dedicates to the common effort.
In these tumultuous times in which we live, we have
a great responsibility to keep our bodies well and
strong, prepared for any task which we may be called
upon to perform for our country. We realize that we,
and all Americans, must be tough to win.

This year the senior
boys were exposed to an
ambitious physical fitness
program. In the past, sen-
iors were not required to
take gym, but "them days

while anyway. The course
consisted of two days of
physical training, com-
mando stuff and the like,
two days of swimming,
and one day of health in-

Hand in hand with phys-

For years the cafeteria has
been doing a commenda-

students with nutritious
food at reasonable prices.
Now its responibility is
doubly important and its
patronage greatly in-
creased. Even with food
diiticulties the students are
assured of health and vit-
ality in our cafeteria.
The king of all sports at Ann Arbor High is football.

"Kip" Taylor and "Dobbie" Drake, a pair of the finest
coaches in the country, were forced to watch their team
lose their first game in 22 starts when the home town boys
succumbed to the Big Reds from Lansing in their first
league game of the season. After the final game, Art Gilles-

The opinion in this section of the country that the
1942-'43 basketball season was a successful one is well
founded. Definitely "on the ball" while winning nine of
twelve games during the regular season, the team breezed
through the district tournament at Fordson. defeating that
team for the trophy. The absence of a state tourney this
year, however, abruptly concluded the basketball season
at this point. The last game of the regular season, in
which Ann Arbor defeated strong, hitherto unbeaten Lan-
sing Sexton by an uneven 43-29 score, was perhaps the
"hottest" night the team enjoyed.
Mainly because of the "Shawmen's" ability to come
from behind and capture games by close margins, was
accomplished the fine record and second place in the
5-A League. Captain Ray Teachworth led the team to
many a victory by his sparkling play, and the return of
lanky Bob Hahn also proved a valuable asset. The team
has chosen a fine leader for next season in Bob Schairer,
one of the eight returning lettermen.

Facing their first wartime season, Coach Tim Ryan's
Cross Country squad nevertheless came through with an-
other successful year.
Led by Co-captains Glen Shankland and Fred Nowland,
the team finished second in the SA meet and fifth in the
state. They also suffered only one dual meet loss, that
at the hands of Jackson in the medley relay.
At the end of the season Jim Mitchell, a consistent point
winner all year, was elected captain for 1943. With the
graduation of Fred German, Bob Burns, and Ron Schairer,
and the loss of Bob Trubey to the Navy, Coach Ryan has
only two returning lettermen on which to build his future
When commenting on the prospects for next season and
the transportation difficulties, Coach Ryan was heard to
vow that his boys would run to Lansing and Battle Creek,
if necessary, in order to have their meets.
Splashing their way through another line season, Coach
"Dobbie" Drake's swimmers upheld the line record set by
Seriously handicapped by the loss of three point winners
through mid-year graduation, Co-captain Bill Moss, Joe
Laird, and Howard Holden, the team gave a good account
of themselves anyway by finishing third in the 5A meet
and sixth in the state meet. The most consistent winner
was Co-captain Heini Kessler. Swimming the breaststroke,
Heini finished second in both state and 5A meets.
The co-captains for next season are Don Lewis and
Alan Pearsall. Fearsall, a diver, won the 5A champion-
ship this year. From the stories that came in, this year's
team couldnit be classed as anything but lightning fast.
This applies to their actions in the water, of course.
With the loss of Malcolm Dale, Glen Jorn, and Dave
Wolaver, the success of the golf team was believed at the
start to rest heavily on the shoulders of Captain Jim Brie-
gel, Bob McCormick, and Roger Kessler. Coach Kent
Bowsher maintained, however, that if determination and
spirit mean anything to a team, then this year's team was
sure to have a very successful year.

Tennis got off with a flying start this year. Seven letter
men returned to the team. At the head of the colossal
team was that illustrious lion of the courts, that second
Budge, Edwin Schneider.
This year even ,the tennis team played its part in war
conservation. Instead of local meets in many diverse loca-
tions, one large meet was held at Lansing, in which all 5-A
schools participated. The team which made the best show-
ing at this congregation won the 5-A championship. When
the Omega went to press this meet was still a thing of the
future. By many devious and no doubt underhanded
methods, the members of the team managed to save a few
drops of gasoline with which they drove to various small,
non-league tournaments. So our racketeers managed suc-
cessfully to spread the name of Ann Arbor High School's
tennis team across the state.

Coached by Tim Ryan, the Ann Arbor High track team,
last year's 5-A Champions, had good reason to expect to
repeat this year.
Led by Co-captains Guy Paul, Michigan A.A.U. shot put
champion, and Wayne Newman, star dash man, the team
could also look for good performances from Wayne
Larmee in the half mile, Bill Haidler in the broad jump
and dash, and Fred Nowland in the pole-vault and hurdles.
The league championship was to be determined at a
5-A meet held late in the season, Wines field being the
probable choice for the site. Unfortunately, your Omega
had already gone to press when this event occurred.

Ben Reed, Ann Arbor High's new baseball coach, carried
on the Pioneer winning tradition with the aid of seven
lettermen and several newcomers. The returning letter-
men are George Royce, the 1943 captain, Don Drury, Bob
Conner, Charles Allmand, Herschal Barth, Ray Teachworth,
and Bill Ball, The newcomers consist of Dan Eskin, Ed
Hirth, Duane Boman, Bob Schairer, and Bob Walter-
house. The squad lost letterman Jack Dates to the armed
forces. The 1943 baseball schedule consisted of ten games,
six at home and four away.
This year, for the first time, the boys went all-out for
physical fitness. Not to be outdone, our fair lassies prompt-
ly accelerated their program known as the Girls' Athletic
Club, or more popularly, the G.A.C. The girls have tried
every sport from archery to wrestling.
Elected managers were Eleanor Lehman, field hockey,
Betty Ann Curtis, badminton, Betty Ann Sweeney, rifleg
Marjorie Makielski, modern dance, Elaine Pew, volley-
ball, Mary Beth Acomb, basketball, Elaine Mueller, arch-
eryg Jean Herne, table tennis, Pat Hatch, softballg Bette
Kussurelis and Barbara Gibson, tennisg Gretchen Hutzel,
As is easily seen, the management of the various ac-
tivities is large enough to comprise a good-sized club in
itself. The girls are taught by Miss Hammann to be lead-
ers in a true sense. It is rumored that complications will
result when everybody becomes a leader.
Letters are awarded on the basis of points, as are vege-
tables, part of which must be leadership points. Awards
are graduated until the highest and rarest award is at-

For the second year, the band has been under the direc-

The officers elected for this season were Garrett Gra-
ham, president, Marjory Hull, vice-president, jackie Carl,
secretary, and Loren Brooks, student conductor. The
appointive positions were filled as follows: librarians,
Phyllis Brooks, and Betty Wilkinson, equipment crew,
Walter Metzger, Harold Prochnow, Andy Bierlein, Norman
Beck, and Bob Armbruster, uniform managers, Ben
Wheatley, Rudi Rechle, and Paul Mason. And, of course,
there were the oflicial window-openers, since in every
rehearsal, Mr. Silfies says without fail, "It's getting hot in
here, boys." They were Bob Ware and Harold Prochnow.
The football band, known for its fast marching tempo,
was rained out of all but two of the games. Because of
transportation difficulties, the marching band was not able
to make its customary trip to an out-of-town game. The
small "pep band" made its appearance at each basketball
game under the direction of Ben Wheatley.
' The band gave its annual spring concert in March, as
well as playing for several assemblies throughout the year.
Its contribution to morale-building included several per-
formances at send-offs for draftees, participation in the
Armistice Day parade, and a parade for the Second War
Loan Drive in April.
They had fun too, with a party after the last football
game, a winter sports outing in January, and a picnic in
the late spring. There's a feeling of comradeship among
band members! When one meets another, he always gives
the traditional friendly greeting, "Hello, gruesome!" or

orchestra played a very successful season. It provided over-
ture and entr'acte music for both the senior and junior
plays. The strings participated in a 100-piece string orches-
tra made up of players from all the city schools which per-
formed for the Michigan Band and Orchestra Association
clinic in February and repeated its program for the Mich-
igan Schoolmasters' Club in April.
All members of the high school group were invited to
join with the Ann Arbor Civic Orchestra in playing for the
Civic Music Night in March. The full orchestra, augment-
ed by string players from the grade schools and junior
highs, played for the city music festival which followed
the May Festival.
Great progress was shown this year, largely because of
the enthusiastic conducting of Miss Elizabeth Green, new
to Ann Arbor from Waterloo, Iowa.

Miss Rose Marie Grentzer, the new director, just recently
moved to Ann Arbor, found herself at a great disadvan-
tage. The poor choir was somewhat depleted and sadly
lacking for some "masculine" tenors. Because of her en-
thusiasm and inexhaustible energy, however, she has been
able to build up a line group of voices.
The choir has to its credit several broadcasts and a
spectacular performance with the U. of M. band. They
also took a prominent part in the Pot Pourri in April. Per-
forming for social and club groups helped round out a
busy year. These smaller programs gave the choir an oppor-
tunity to use their wide repertory of patriotic music.
GIHL5'GLEE EL B
The Girls' Glee Club played a prominent part in the
annual school Christmas program and in the Pot Pourri
given in April, besides being on call for less formal occa-
sions at the school, they also participated in the Public
School Festival at Hill Auditorium. The Glee Club course
aims to develop a better understanding of music. There
are forty-five students in this organization, which meets
twice a week. Miss Rose Marie Grentzer has ably stepped
into the place of Miss Higbee and is making a splendid
name for herself as director.

PUT PU RHI
Pot Pourri was a musical medley presented as a con-
tribution to the war effort during the governments second
war loan drive in April. Ann Arbor High School was in
competition with the other SA League schools in Michigan
for the purchase of stamps and bonds. The sale was greatly
stimulated through the presentation of this program, ad-
mission to which consisted of the buying of war stamps
The program was colorful and diversified. Selections
from Victor Herbert, George Gershwin, and Jerome Kern
were sung by the A Cappella Choir and the following
soloists: Dorothy Smith, Elaine Pew, Pat Cline, and Al-
bert Koernke. The gir1's sextet also sang. The Girls' Glee
Club presented folk songs of various nations: Russia, Spain,
and of course America. The climax was reached with the
singing of the ever popular "I Hear America Singing," by
Walt Whitman. The girls in the choir sang a newly composed
choral number by Dr. Eric Delamarter, "A Prayer for the Old
Courage." The composer was in the audience. Margarita
Johnson gave a ballet dance to Strauss' "Pizzicato Polka."
Several numbers were offered by the Modern Dance Group.
Formal dress was worn during the first part of the pro-
gram, and for the latter part the A Cappella wore their
traditional robes, with tableaux in the background setting
the atmosphere. For the other selections, character cos-
tumes were used.
The general chairman for the program was Mr. Gran-
ville. Miss Laura Hammann trained the Modern Dance
group, and the music was under the able direction of Miss
Rose Marie Grentzer.
"LETTERS TU L EER E"
uniora jigh Over Zim
At Pattengill Auditorium on April 2 and 3 the junior
class presented the war-time drama, "Letters to Lucerne,"
by Fritz Rotter and Allen Vincent.
The plot centers about an American school for young
ladies in Lucerne, Switzerland, in the autumn of 1939. In
this school are girls from England, the United States, Ger-
many, France, and Poland, consequently every girl there
faces the problem of war against friends. The two teachers
try their best to make the girls see that it will do no good
to have a private war in the school.
A dozen roses go to the cast, who with a willing coopera-
tiveness and a mind for work made this year's a play that
will linger in the minds of the public. They go especially,
perhaps, to Jeannette Collins who portrayed Erna Schmidt,
a German girl, and to petite Gwendolyn Stevens who was
Erna's friend, Olga, from Poland. Pat Reed gave humor to
the Sally, a typical little gal from the deep South. Bingo,
an all-American schoolgirl, was enlivened by Donna Wa-
ters. Jane Dahlberg and Suzanne West were French Felice
and English Marion, who were on the lookout for a spy or
two. Don Lewis gave a romantic angle to the play by his
'portrayal of Hans, Erna's brother, who is in love with Olga.
Georgia Rae Keller was the stalwart housekeeper, Mar-
garethe, and Benjamin Wheatley made a convincing gard-
ener and general handyman. Helen Anez and Dorothy
Beatty were the teachers, Mrs. Hunter and Miss Linder
respectively. As Francois, the postman, Bruce Tappe gave
his best. Douglas Swift and Justin Fairbanks were double-
cast as Herr Koppler. Credit is also due Mary Claire Up-
thegrove, who stood by night after night of practice as
bookholder, always there with a line or two.
Mr. Frank Reed directed the play. Though he probably
has gray hairs because of it, the performance had the
finish and snap that always characterize his productions.

MASQ EHS EL B
An institution as weather-beaten and nearly as old as
the school is the worthy brotherhood of Masquers. These
Thespian aspirants meet periodically under the watchful
eye of none other than Mr. Frank Reed, director and actor
extraordinary, who alternately goads, chides, and chortles
his budding dramatists into fanatic glee.
Official leadership during the first semester was under
the baton of Ed Schneider, president, with Eras Kussurelis
as vice-president, Jeannette Collins as secretary, and Jane
Dahlberg as treasurer. Responsibility in the second semes-
ter shifted to the shoulders of Don Lewis, president, Wil-
lard Booth, vice-president, Dorothy Beatty, secretary, and
Doug Swift, treasurer.
The Masquers entertained themselves with such plays
as "Farewell, Cruel World" and "The Opening of a Door."
The organization is devoted to cultural development and
fun. The intentions are honorable and the object is profit,
a sure formula for success.
Eighteen dramatically-inclined sophomores met every
Tuesday afternoon throughout the year to learn more
about the theatrical arts. Under the able guidance of Mr.
Lloyd Roberts, new to Ann Arbor this year from Lincoln,
Illinois, they studied pantomime and make-up and read
skits. Ed Davis was the group's president, with Mary Cham-
pion as vice-president and Pat Crandall as secretary.
The Dramateers' major work for the year was "Don't
Feed the Animals," a one-act play by Bob Wellington,
which was given in assembly. The play's hilarious plot was
a satire on human relationships. The cast was as follows:
Scripps, the butler, Torchy Custisg Jimmie Walton, Ed
Davis, Buttons, Jean Davidson, Teacher, Virginia Fairfield,
Marie, Lois Beattie, Dorothy, Marilyn Schairerg Sadie, Por-
tia Middlesworthg Pearl, Pat Crandall, Diane Carter, Mary
Wyman, News girl, Helen Christoff.
SE IUHS PRESENT ARMS
1111141 jk? l
Under a new director, the graduating seniors kept up
with the times in one of Bernard Shaw's satires on civiliza-
tion in general and war in particular, Arms and the Man.
Exceedingly outstanding in the cast was everybody, who
couldn't help it because of Mr. Roberts' excellent if verbose
directing. The play concerns a professional soldier who
insists on acting as if he were a human being, which the
audience thinks very funny indeed. This queer individual
is contrasted with a many-sided Bulgarian wolf who tries
to act as if he were a soldier. Although he is characterized
by his false veneer and general horseplay, he is smart
enough to realize it and consequently make life miserable
for himself and everybody else. "His life was an open book
and he loved to read aloud out of it." fWe quote, but we
forget from whom.j These personalities were excellently
cast in the persons of loud Willard Booth and shy Larry
Darling in that order.
The rest of the cast comprised Eras Kussurelis as the
unpredictable and therefore typically feminine Raina,
Nancy Cory as the object of above-mentioned wolf's am-
orous attentionsg Jack Fisher and Charles Hanson double-
cast as pompous old papa Petkoffg Avery Grant as bluster-
ing Mama with the air-raid siren voice: Gardner Soule as
the sly servant Nicola: and Ed Schneider and Charles Han-
son double-cast as the menacing Russian officer.
Abounding in flashy uniforms, novel settings, and spec-
tacular sound effects, Shaw's highly humorous and melo-
dramatic Arms and the Man proved a challenge even to
seniors with one year's experience under their belts. Direc-
tor Lloyd Roberts Haunted tradition but achieved a real

RIFLE EL B
One of the most active groups in school life during this
war year is the Rifle Club. It has proved to be very success-
ful in its usual enterprises and also as a part of the pre-
The group was led during the first semester by Jack Null,
president, and Kenneth Mitchell, vice-president. During the
second semester Bob Schmidt was president, and Kenneth
Mitchell retained his post as vice-president.
The club piled up a record of four victories, two ties, and
one loss in dual meet competition. They came out second
in the Hearst Marksman competition covering high schools
in Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

This year's Scribblers' Club has been sponsored by the
shorthand teacher, Miss Helen McEwen, and, since she is
new to A.A.H.S., it has kept her mighty busy. However,
with the able assistance of Dorothy Bergren, president, Vir-
ginia Balhoff, vice-president, and Dorine Haab, secretary-
treasurer, an enthusiastic membership of twenty-live was
The purpose of the Scribblers is twofold, professional
and social. The professional aim is achieved by working
for penmanship and speech awards and also for typing
awards. In shorthand, the girls aimed for attainment of 60,
80, and 100 words per minute. A number of the girls have
also been honored in the Gregg-sponsored typing ability
tests. The social endeavors of the club have been apparent
in several parties that provided much gay fun.
Scribblers' Club is definitely an asset to our school, and
the awards and honors gained by them are worthy of high
There is a reserve of girls organized in the sophomore
class, which any upper classman will agree is a good idea.
It is not a high school Lonely Hearts Club, however, for
it is known as Rota Beta. It does not administer dates but
much more useful though somewhat less entertaining first
aid. The girls are, we shudder to report, all engaged-in
war work and Motor Corps activity.
If any stalwart young men wish to study the qualifica-
tions for membership, we suggest they consult this year's
officers, who were Mary Buell, president, Barbara Metz,
vice-president, Marydel Berger, secretary, and Gretchen
Hutzel, treasurer. For further information we recommend
Miss Olive McLouth, faculty sponsor.
Another of Ann Arbor High's clubs to change its program
drastically this year is Colonnade. This group is affiliated
with the Y.W.C.A. as Girl Reserves. Recognizing the oppor-
tunity of an already organized group to align itself with the
war effort, Colonnade restricted its social activities and
began meeting weekly at the Red Cross headquarters to
take courses in nutrition, leading to an advanced course in
canteen work. This year's officers were Celia Taylor, presi-
dent, Avery Grant, vice-president, Peggy Matthews, secre-
tary, Rose Mary Marin, treasurer. Miss Muck was the
faculty adviser. Another picture of the club is used on
pages 11 and 39 to symbolize the "morale building" activi-
ties of the school.

This year, because of the war's demands on the students'
time, the Science Club held few formal meetings, usually
having only laboratory periods in which those students who
wished to might experiment. During the first semester the

THE UPTI IST
Though hacked to half its size by the tribulations of war,
this year's Optimist has graphically and dramatically rc-
flected the unprecedented effect of the war on Ann Arbor
Nobody knows what next year will bring to the broken-
down, moth-eaten, decrepit Optimist office. This year, how-
ever, Mr. Wright's proteges were lucky enough to be head-
ed by that scintillating and dynamic editor, Heini Kessler.
The first page was under the whips of Joe Goetz and
Charles Hanson. Bob Perrin effectively handled the second
page and Frances Collins worried about the third. The
sports page was under the well-placed direction of Dick
Hait. With the exception of Hait, the whole editorial staff
consisted of seniors, which promises an amusing situation
Dick Benson was responsible for making the paper pay
for itself. This somewhat important job was accomplished
under the watchful eye of Mr. Maybee. As business head,
Dick had to cope with such problems as procurement of
paper, advertising, printing, fthe school print shop closed
when Mr. Wolter went into war workj and innumerable
difficulties arising in the financial end of the paper every
As is easily seen, the Optimist, like every other peace-
time activity, has had to revamp its plans to conform to
the war effort. The job is doubly difficult in a complicated
machine like a newspaper. So far the Optimist is doing its
best, which is the best there is. What more can you expect?
P.S.-Though traditional rivalry exists between our re-
spective staffs, the Omega grudgingly admits the swiping
of Optimist headlines to liven up our photographs.
AIR H!-lllfl UHILLS
If one entered any one of the class rooms
on a certain. ordinary morning, one would
see the previously drowsy students rise quick-
ly at the sound of a bell and file neatly out
of the door. What could account for this quick
transformation? The answer lies in the
phrase, air raid drills.
Since the war began Ann Arbor High
School has practiced air raid drillsg for al-
though the danger of falling bombs seems
distant, we have learned the lesson of prepar-
ation from the Pearl Harbor attack. Miss
Parry, with her committee. planned the most
efficient means of evacuating class rooms
quickly and safely in case of a raid. With the
advice of authorities on building construction
and the Civilian Defense Office, specific places
were assigned in the building as a shelter
from the bombs. Each class, realizing the
gravity of the situation. learned its position
well and appointed air raid wardens.
The excellent cooperation of the school is
to be commended. When the drill signal is
sounded, not a sound other than the tramp of
feet is heard. Students utter no word. When
their destination is reached, awe inspiring
silence reigns as they stand in orderly rows.
There is no need to add that in case of emer-
gency Ann Arbor High School is ready: and
by the orderliness and silence of the students,
the tragedy of panic will be avoided.

STAMP 5 LES
One of the many wartime activities en-
gaged in by the students this year was the
sale of Defense Stamps and Bonds. Every
Wednesday special agents were dispatched
from C-12 with stamps to urge the students to
sink at least 99 44f10O per cent of their
weakly Cpardon us, "weekly"j earnings in the
conduct of our nation's offense.
All types of ballyhoo were employed to in-
crease these sales. 4'Scrappy," an interesting
little "goon gobfi was offered to the room hav-
ing the highest average sale for two weeks in
succession. After Miss Paton's class put
'AScrappy" out of circulation by winning it
permanently and giving it to Slauson, they
offered a purple and white silk banner in-
scribed "A.A.H.S. Stamp Champ" to be passed
each week to the room having the highest
average. One day early in the spring C-3 was
astounded to see the three dictators march in
and start ordering them around. To remedy
this situation, the students immediately
bought scads of stamps, and the three dicta-

Sonic of us, the students of thc class ol' lf!-1.3, must
go forth to do battle for our country. Some have sacri-
hcecl a part of their schooling to go into industry or
:igriculturc in our country's time of need. They will
light :incl work nobly to provide the world another op!
portunity to make a better place in which to live. Shall
we, :is clicl our fathers, fail those who gave their lives
that we might have this chzlnce? Shzill wc suilijvct mans
kind to a third world war before we learn how to use
fully and unselfishly the resources of the earth, so that
all may share equally in its bounties? Shall we destroy
by the furies of war another generation of young men?
Shall we continue to make the little people of the world
suffer plague, hunger, and devastation by bombs?
No. We must not, we dare not fail again. And so
those of us who remain must make ready to fight the
battles of peace. We shall have to fight weapons more
deadly than guns, tanks, planes, and ships. We must
gird ourselves for battle against ignorance, prejudice,
greed, bigotry, and deceit.
Our role is difhcult because it seems dull, unexciting
now when we see others meeting the enemy face to
face. But our part is no less vital to total victory, if we
consider victory the winning of the peace as well as of
the War. Yes, some must stay at home to study while
others go out to fight and die. It is for those who re-
main to build the shining citadels of peace.
LAST FALL a group of youngsters en-
tered Ann Arbor High School to partici-
pate in high school life and add their
bit to the fun.
Although their sophomore party
wasn't held until the middle of the year,
they soon became well acquainted.
They chose some excellent class officers:
Walter Sellars, presidentg Bob Walter-
house, vice-presidentg and Joan Slater,
secretary. Walter Sellars has shown
himself to be a very strong leader as
well as a fine athlete, excelling especial-
ly in football. Bob Walterhouse has
also been a leader in athletics, while
Joan Slater has been an active member
of Rota Beta and participated in various
types of war work.
Being led by three such able officers,
the class of 1945 seems to be showing it-
self able to carry on the traditions and
uphold the standards of Ann Arbor High
School in music, dramatics, athletics, cit-
izenship, and scholarship.

MUCH SPACE AND BALLY1-loo is being
given to the effect of war influences on
A.A.H.S. Woefully neglected has been
not what we have now but what we
used to have, or "what ain't."
In addition to those lost to the Armed
Forces, many teachers have left the
school for necessary work in war indus-
tries or activities. To date this list in-
cludes Mr. Matzke, Mr. Quigley, and
Mr. Isaacson, chemistry, Mr. Taylor,
football coach: Mrs. Soller, nurse: Miss
Paton, math: and Mr. Wolter, printing.
Likewise, most students are taking part-
time jobs. This accounts for the amaz-
ing depletion in the ranks of our various
clubs and activities. Veterans of the
team have found no time for debating,
a great time-eater, and the transporta-
Lion problem has hampered it seriously.
Members of the Travel Club have
found talking of travel rather imprac-
tical. All agreed that crowding two hun-
dred seniors into war-crowded Wash-
ington would be not only unpatriotic
but uncomfortable. The Washington
Club was speedily dropped, a blow to
the hearts of all seniors. The printing
department is "closed till after Hitler's
Upon glancing through previous Ome-
gas, it becomes obvious that something
has happened to the school. There is no
French Club, Sketch Club, Boys' Glee
Club, Floriculture Club, nor Stamp
Club. All nonessential activities are fad-
ing into the background but quick. Who
knows? Maybe our own little sheet
may be next! We cannot help reflect-
ing that though the blow to the hearts
of seniors may be a hard one, the blow
to the heart of the Axis will be much,

Next years seniors are faced with a
more difficult problem than any preced-

really settle down on the civilian pop-
ulation. The boys, like our own, will
face military service immediately after
graduation. We wish all possible luck
and good fortune to the seniors of '44.

THE SE IUHS
BECAUSE OF THE RECENT DRAFTING of
eighteen-year-olds, the senior class rep-
resents the first similar group in all time
to face the orgy of war almost en masse
directly upon departure from the hap-
piness of school activities and the se-
curity of home.
In their final year, seniors were led
by President George Vlisicles, vice-presi-
dent Fred Matthaei, secretary Mildred
Scherdt, and treasurer Tom Biddle. The
ofiicers were largely responsible for the
success of the usual class activities. The
annual senior prom and the play, "Arms
and the Man," were received with cus-
tomary plaudits. Such triumphs, how-
ever, now fade into unimportance.
Contrary to tradition, it is fitting that
we regard these seniors with seriousness.
The inevitable parting of schoolmates is
not now a hearty and gay goodbye but
a thoughtful farewell. Look at the sen-
iors. Study them carefullyg for as then
they were boys, now they are men.
