Text from Pages 1 - 144 of the 1945 volume:
E ARE engaged in this War because we firmly believe
in Democracy and are striving to preserve it. We, the
younger generation of the United States, feel that a future
under anything but a democratic system of government could
not be tolerated. Because we live in a Democracy, we have
a promising futureg and it is for this that our high school edu-
cation prepares us.
During our three years at Ann Arbor High School, we
have come into contact with democratic practices through our
experiences in student government and class organization.
This has prepared us for taking an active part in the demo-
cratic system of our government in the World of tomorrow.
In order to secure a lasting peace, the people of the world
must learn to live and Work together in harmony. Working
together with a common purpose in mind is one of the great-
cst lessons to be learned in Ann Arbor High School. This is
accomplished through our clubs and social activities from
which no persons are excluded.
Good health is of prime importance in preparing our-
selves for the future. Gur sports and physical education pro-
grams ha.ve for their objective the better health of all the
students. Our competitive sports program also develops the
qualities of sportsmanship, team spirit, and self-confidence,
necessary in a good citizen. .
Preparation for numerous vocations is offered at Ann Arbor
High. Only under a democratic system are the students given
a chance to choose the work which will insure a happy and
successful life. Because we are given this opportunity, it is
our duty to make the most of it and be good citizens.
We feel our high school education has prepared us to take
our place as citizens in a democracy and will guide us to the
intelligent action which will build a peaceful world-OURS
IS THE FUTURE.
PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS Ill:
In sincere appreciation of her friendliness and guidance
through a hundred quiet and unnoticed acts, we, the class of
1945, dedicate this Omega to Miss Lavanche Rieger, whose
pleasant smile has been our inspiration.
As director ofthe Colonnade Club until the year 1941, Miss
Rieger made innumerable friends among the members of the
student body. We shall remember her teaching Latin, Working
with her Latin students in organizing and preparing the
Roman Banquet, and advising the Presidents Committee
during the fall semester of 1943. One never passes B-3 with-
out noticing a host of students gathered within requesting
information and aid, or perhaps just enjoying a pleasant

With the arrival of May lst, the final deadline, the
tilst Omega stall will be able to sit down to rentinisce
and will recall the many enjoyable hours spent in
C-7 while editing this record of the activities of the
The staff, which was ably lead by Peggy Rose and
George Sandenburgh, co-editorsg Mary Buell and Bob
VVilloughby. co-business managers, will recall the se-
lecting of the appropriate theme "Ours is the Fu-
ture." It was felt that with such favorable reports
of action on the war fronts, and such extensive dis-
cussion of security peace plans, our book should illus-
trate how high school life prepares the youth lor
taking' his part in the future.
As the book began to take shape, the senior biog-
raphies were written by the senior committee headed
by Gretchen Hutzel, who received much valuable aid
from Barbara Wfalker, Lois jane Saffell, Fae Kauf-
man, Marion Gault, Anita Stull, and Elaine Schmid.
The pasters became quite professional before their
deadline arrived. The committee headed by Marydel
Berger and Anita Stull completed their work on
March l5. Many hours of valuable assistance were
donated to the cause by Pat Hatch, Kris Ramsay,
Pat Crandall, and Barbara Cole.
Much credit is due to Kathleen Law and Carl Cone
rad, who, under the direction of Mr. Ernest Asmus,
did the art work for the cover and the division pages.
The photography for our yearbook was done by Mr.
Mahlon Buell, Norman lflfilliams, and Private Leslie
Bill Fry and his advertising committee spent much
time and shoe leather in making this book possible.
Also giving assistance with every part of the book,
were the junior staff members: Martha Wells, Bob
Dressel, Anne Hariton, and Bill Upthegrove. Typists
for the book were Jan Nickelsen, Joan Slater, and Pat
lfaculty direction came lronl Miss Virginia Golay,
Mr. John Allison and Miss Dorothy Noyes. J
ln spite ol the shortages of materials the Omega
stall' has strived to give you a complete and accurate
record of this year's activities in this book which it
presents to you for your approval.

Ann Arbor High School lost one of its truest friends -july 6, l944, when Mr.
Arthur Wright succumbed to a lingering illness at his home in Monroe.
Born in Monroe in 1907, the son of judge and Mrs. George S. VVright, Arthur
received his bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in 1930. In 1934
he returned for his master's degree after teaching in Bad Axe, Michigan. Before
coming to the Ann Arbor High School, he taught English at the Tappan junior
High School for three years.
Mr. Wright will hold a kindly place in the memories ol' all who had the pleas-
ure of knowing him through his English and journalism classes or the Optimist,
which he sponsored for seven years. V
His varied interestsand appreciation for the liner things in life made him an
enjoyable companion. Probably his keen sense of humor is most sorely missed,
because it was of so rare a quality.
"Be not afraid, ye waiting hearts that weep,
For God still giveth His beloved sleep,
And if an endless sleep He wills-so best."
A very quiet little girl passed away in October, 1944. Joyce was a courageous
young person, one whom many people were proud to know. Carrying the handi-
cap of a weak heart, she bravely attempted to follow a regular schedule as the
rest of her friends would do. It was with heavy hearts that Joyce's friends paid
tribute to her upon hearing of her death: and it is with regretful thoughts that
she will be remembered by teachers and fellow-students alike. -
"The Stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years:
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amidst the war of elements,
The wreck of matter and the crush of worlds."
Marilyn, a former member of the class of '46, was an unfortunate victim ol' the
deadly polio epidemic. She died August 26, 1944.
Behind her Marilyn left a host of friends who mourn her departure. I-ler
junior high school days were spent at Tappan, where she was active in school
events. Upon entering high school Marilyn quickly struck up new friendships
which were to remain with her until her death.
The image of this quiet, tall, attractive girl will not soon pass from the minds
of those who knew and loved her.

Democracy is the basis of the organization of Ann
Arbor High School. The homeroom system, Student
Council, clubs, and classes: all of these are conducted
in a democratic way. Every student is eligible to hold
office in any of these activities. The only requirement is
that the student maintains suitable grades. Thus we are
today preparing ourselves for the future-INSURING
DEMOCRACY THROUGH PRACTICE.
ST DE T CHU IIIL
The Student Council is the foundation and major lunc-
tion of the system of student government at Ann Arbor
High. The Council this year was lead by Dan Duncanson,
president, Roger Kessler, vice-president, Peggy Rose, sec-
"Ye Olde Bookshoppef' a council project, was a con-
gested area during the hrst days of this semester. One ol'
the first projects of the new council was installing and
financing a student telephone. The installation took little
effort on the Council's part, but the financing required
more elbow grease, such as peddling hand bills. After
sponsoring several drives, the Sophomore welcome Party,
the Thanksgiving Dance, the ice cream treat for stamp and
bond sales, and the planning of the V. E. Day assembly,
the first semester's Council adjourned by having a dinner
meeting previous to the Blue Book Dance. The officers of
this council were corresponding secretary, Lois jane Saflellg
treasurer, George Sandenburghg parliamentarian, jim
The second semester's Council elected Mary Buell as
their corresponding secretary, Bill Godfrey, treasurer, and
jim Bryant, parliamentarian. This Council incorporated
into a Code, rules for behavior in the corridors, assembly,
and cafeteria. These rules were taken from suggestions the
student body had made.
The Council sponsored tl1c traditional "Sponge Week"
which ended with a successful dance. As in the first semes-
ter, representatives were sent to the 5-A League Conference
held at Lansing Eastern on May 2. After sponsoring the
election of the officers to lead the Council during the year
1945-46, the Student Council adjourned.

Another example of student government in Ann Arbor High is found in the
structure of the committee system. The majority of committees are organized
under the Student Council, and any person is eligible to be a member of any
one committee. The work done by these groups is for the beneht of the school
in general and the student body as a whole.
The non-athletic board rules on all matters concerned with any activity ex-
cluding sports and is in charge of the all-school parties. The athletic board rules
on all measures pertaining to athletic activities. The members of both boards are
elected from and by the Student Council. The l'resident's Committee includes
the president of each homeroom, and its purpose is to promote better homeroom
meetings through preparation.
Boosting the sales of stamps and bonds is the main business of the Stamps and
Bonds Committee, which is composed of one member from each homeroom.
The War Projects Committee plans and sponsors the various clothing and
charity drives. This year it has strived for l00fjf, participation and has achieved
it in nearly every drive. The Mlar Service and Records Committee has done a
remarkable job in bringing the service list up to date. Another project of this
group was the securing of a memorial to be given to the parents of the boys who
have died in service. Both of these committees are made up entirely of volun-
The Assembly Committee plans and presents our weekly assemblies which are
looked forward to by all. The Health and Safety Committee has as its concern
the bettering of the health and safety conditions in the school and among the
students. In order that those students who eat their lunch at school can gain
some relaxation during their lunch period, the Noon Hour Committee provides
various activities such as movies and dances. The last three committees men-
tioned are also open to all students interested.
By joining any one of these committees, a student can take part in tl1e govern-
ing of the activities of the school. lt is through this means that tl1e students are
able to voice their opinions and work out their ideas. This complete system is
a miniature form of our Democratic govermnent and good experience for pre-
paring us for the future.

The main purpose of the organization of clubs and
activities at Ann Arbor High is to make it possible for
students to know one another informally in order that
they may learn to work together harmoniously. Pro-
moting friendly relations between the peoples of the
world is one of the most important factors in securing
and maintaining peace. By participating in clubs aml
other activities, we are preparing ourselves for this task

Various experiments, events, and editorials colored the Opti-
mist year. Following the death of Mr. Arthur Wright, former
adviser, Miss Dellagene Molden came from Hinsdale, Illinois,
to Ann Arbor High School to Hll the vacant position.
At the first of the year publication was late because of the
poliomyelitis scare which brought a two-week recess,tbut it was
not long after the opening of school that the paper was well
Some changes were soon instituted by first-page editor jackie
Breniser who added unusual variety to the make-up of the page.
An editorial on Molly W7ilson's second page was another high
point of the Hrst semester. This story, concerning the need of
new high school gym facilities, prompted constructive response
from the school board. A typographical change came later in
the year when the Christmas issue was published in green i11k to
bring more of the holiday spirit.
Ed Sandell, a junior, joined the editorial stalf of the second
semester to replace Molly Mlilson who graduated. Carrying on
the tradition of the preceding years, the second-page editorials
were extremely stimulating. Some of the new students wrote a
letter to the editor explaining the fact that students did not
always make newcomers feel welcome. Something should be done
about this problemg for this reason the Student Council took
action toward making A.A.H.S. a friendlier place. Because of
the deluge of advertisements contracted by business manager
Barbara Cole and adviser Mr. Gene Maybee, third and fourth
pages were cramped for space as in other yearsg the income from
these things helped keep the paper well on the black side of the
ledger. The third page was edited by Marjorie Fyfe, and jim
Bryant edited the fourth page. Barbara YValker, exchange edi-
lor, was another staff asset. By way of innovation issue I2 was
edited by the journalism class in an attempt to utilize new-
found abilities. Fae Kaufman editor-in-chief, ended the success-
ful season with the popular issue, the Pessimist. The 1944-
1945 staff was called by many "spirited and independent."

The orchestra, growing steadily under the capable baton of
Miss Elizabeth Green, turned in a number of fine performances
during the year, which added greatly to the musical reputation
of Ann Arbor High. In January a concert was given with Gene-
vieve Shanklin, concert-mistress, and Bill Penn, cornetist, as
soloists. Several members of the string section entered in the
Southeastern Michigan Solo Contest and won high ratings. Lau-
rels went to Alice Sano who won first place in cello, Lilias
Wagner who won first place in viola, and Marjorie Hurlbut and
Mary Edwards who tied for second place in violin. The orches-
tra played for the King-Seeley sl1ow which was given to raise
money for the infantile paralysis fund and played an important
part in the annual all-city May Festival program at Hill Audi-
torium. Wfithout doubt the highlight of the year was the out-
standing performance of this group in the operetta which
contributed greatly to its success.
The Band, Ann Arbor High's melodious morale builder, spent
an enthusiastic year under the able baton of Mr. Charles Yates.
The band played for many programs: assemblies both here and
at other schools, athletic events, and at the presentation of the
Navy E to the Hoover Ball and Bearing Company. They also
played in the annual all-city May Festival program. These activi-
ties were climaxed by the biggest social event ol' the year fat
least in the eyes ol' our hard-working musiciansj the annual band
picnic at Mfhitmore Lake in june.
The officers for the group this year were president, Mfilliam
Penn, secretary, jo An Lyonsg treasurer, Bob Gibson, librarians,
Darlene Eschliman, Beverly Dygert, and Dorothy Kaercher:
uniforms manager, Bill Penn: equipment managers, Charles
Meyers and Buddy Marshall. All these promising musicians
contributed to the hne performances of the band. In the South-
eastern Michigan Solo and Ensemble Festival held at Crosse
Pointe, Bill Penn, first chair cornetist of the band, and Charles
Meyers, drummer, won hrst division ratings. i
All in all the band seems to have added greatly to the life of'
the school with its lively strains. The rousing music of the pep
band under student conductor Bill Penn contributed much to
the enjoyment of the fans at all the ball games.
BUYS'ELEE EL B
The newly formed Boys' Glee Club presented itself for the first time
at the one-hundredth anniversary ol the Y.W.C.A. celebration last fall.
The boys also participated in the Christmas assembly and sang "White
Christmas." They met twice a week and were under the direction ol'
Miss Rose Marie Grentzer.
During the spring they practiced the music for the operetta "H.M.S.
Pinal'ore" and were in the cast, Miss Grentzer was very pleased with
this new group and expects it to make an even more important contri-
bution to her musical organization another year.
HIHLS'ELEE EL B
Although open to girls of all grades, the Girls Glee Club is composed
mainly of sophomores. During the school year it has been meeting
twice weekly. Since the group is handicapped by the small amount ol'
time allotted lor its meetings, it has been overshadowed in public
appearances by the other groups which meet daily.
The girls did participate, however, in the Christmas program and
cooperated with the committees which worked on the operetta. They
participated in the all-city May Festival and presented a program in
june at the X'Vest Park Band Shell.
F AN ANDU EHUIB
The Cantando Choir presented one of the most unique and popular
assemblies of the year under the direction of Miss Rose Marie Grent-
zer. lt was given for Valentine's Day, and the girls, dressed in red and
white, made a picturesque lormation of a huge heart. They presented
a program ol popular and classical love songs.
They also participated in the Christmas program and sang Christmas
carols at the University Hospital. Alter walking many hospital corri-
dors they ended up at the interns' quarters, where in their carols, they
begged for plum pudding. In a short time they received generous
helpings of fruit cake with the compliments of the interns and nurses.
On Sunday morning, April 25, they presented a radio broadcast ol
religious music over W4jR. In May they gave a short program for their
mothers at the home ol Grace Teed, where they were served tea.
The Choir was an especially versatile group showing themselves able
to do both light and classical music well. They met daily. Their oH'icers
for the year were president, Polly Hodgesg vice-president, Portia Mid-
dlesworth: secretaries, Barbara Mecklenberg and joan Wlalker, and
librarian, Virginia Fairchild.
E PPELL EHUIHW
.X Cappella Choir has participated in many programs this year. The
Choir played a major part in the Christmas program and hnished the
Christmas festivities with a night ol caroling and a party.
Another highlight of the year was the Sunday morning radio broad-
cast over NVjR at which time records were made of the group singing.
The Choir received fan mail from all parts of Michigan and several
other states after their broadcast.
The sextet and the octet ol the choir have made many public appear'
ances. Because ol the dilliculties in transportation this year, the octet
represented A Cappella Choir at Cass Technical High School in De-
troit where they sang before 3500 people. In Ann Arbor the octet and
the sextet have appeared before various club groups and schools.
The largest undertaking of the year was the Operetta, "H.M.S. Pina-
lore." which was given in April. The linal event of the year was in May
when Ann Arbor had an exchange concert and picnic with Royal Oak
High School at Pontiac. Our choir participated in the annual May
Festival, and the sextet and octet sang in the Ensemble Festival.
Officers for this year were manager, Marjorie Lambg assistant, Sher'
man Mortensong secretary, Marilyn Shairerg treasurer, Marjorie john-
stong and librarian, Betty jean Davidson. Miss Rose Marie Grentzer
directed the choir.

Not to be outdone by last year's operetta, the music
department again upheld its splendid reputation by pro-
ducing Gilbert and Sullivan's H. M. S. Pinafore. The
various musical organizations that participated in the
operetta were A Cappella choir, Cantando Choir, Boys
Glee Club, Girls Glee Club, and the Orchestra. The cos-
tumes and setting were very well done, and the music
was in the usual gay Gilbert and Sullivan style.
Josephine, the beautiful heroine, was played by Ellen
Gleason g and Ralph, the handsome hero, was played by
Jim Bemis. Captain Carcran, and Sir Joseph, the two
English noblemen, kept the audience laughing almost
constantly with their witty conversations and tricky
songs. These parts were played by David Wilder and Ed
Sandell respectively. Toward making the plot more con-
fusing Buttercup, played by Dorothy Dice, did her share.
Others cast in leading roles were Marilyn Schairer as
Hebe, one of Sir Josephis daughters, Jim Uberhorst as
Dick Deadeye, an unappreciated pirate, Sherman Mor-
tenson as the Boatswain, Bob Williams as the Boatswain's
mate, and Wesley Shannon as Midshipman Lee.
The music department began working on the operetta
in the latter part of March, and their first performance
was given Thursday afternoon, April 26, for the school
children. Two other performances were given on April
27 and April 28 in the evening.

THE LATE IIHHISTIIPHEH BEAN
By SIDNEY HOXN'ARlJ
'The late Chris Bean's paintings, long unappreciated,
make quite a stir in the Haggett household when art col-
lectors begin storming the house with thousand-dollar
offers. The greedy Mrs. Haggett and one of her daugh-
ters are "husband-hunting" and want the money for im-
pressive clothes and a trip to Florida. Dr. Haggett wants
only to keep his family happy. Not knowing the value
of these paintings, the family seemingly has destroyed
Chris' canvases. Abbey, the hired maid, brings the paint-
ings to light, and when the Haggetts imagine themselves
millionaires and start accepting offers right and left,
Abbey announces that she had married Chris secretly
and is the rightful owner. Susie, the unselfish daughter,
leaves with Abbey to marry a young artist who was a
protege of Chris Beansf The curtain falls on a poor but
wiser Haggett family.
The cast did a beautiful job with mature and difficult
parts. Dick Hager as the kind-hearted, harassed country
doctor gave an excellent portrayal. Roses go to Lois Steere
for her realistic portrayal of the good-hearted, sensible
Abbey. Credit for excellent supporting parts goes to Mar-
ion Manx, who played the part of the money-mad
mother, to Catherine Warren for Ada, the family i'baby"g
to Lola Bennett and Bob Dressel, who supplied the love
interest, to Ellis Flieg as Rosen, the Jewish art collectorg
and to Niki Kazarinoff and David Whitfield, the other
two art collectors. Ellis Flieg deserves special mention for
his excellent interpretation of the character of Rosen.
The play was ably directed by Miss Lucille Lundgren.

N me Girls, the Senior Play this year, set new records
in play production. It displayed the talent of the senior
girls by being the first all-girl cast ever to appear in a
class play. It was also the first mystery play to be given as
a class play.
A rustic sorority clubhouse was the setting for the
murder mystery. Bear rugs, animal skins, kerosene lan-
terns, thunder and rain added to the atmosphere.
Barbara Cole. a medical student, and Portia Middles-
worth, a newly pledged sorority member, began the play
by bringing back memories of what had happened on the
spot three years before. Betty Neutz, who seemed to
have communistic leanings, kept everyone wondering
what she would say next. Alice, Molly Wilson, had the
unfortunate luck to have 'Kdangerous knowledge" and
was therefore eliminated. Chic Mary Wyman as Eve did
a swell job of solving the crime, while Lois Beattie, alias
Glamorpuss, was more of a hindrance than a help. CYes.
Lois, you will always be remembered creeping down the
staircase in your nightgown, carrying a candle and recit-
ing Macbethj Fae Kaufman will never be forgotten-
not as long as she can scream. Annabelle Sanford, as a
little southern gal, had everyone wishing that she had
come from below that Mason-Dixon line too. Perhaps
Marilyn Jacobs and Rosemary Philips had even the boys
jealous of their athletic prowess, when they were double
cast as Shotput. Kathleen Law was as sleek and slick a
criminal as ever carried a bottle of poison. Oops-now
it's out, but the play is all over. What a success it was!
ive can't neglect director Frank Reed, however,
who thoroughly enjoyed his cast.

In B-6 every other Tuesday morning our sophomore dramatic club,
the Wig and Masque, meets. Good old Ann Arbor High School thinks
they are quite the sharp bunch because they really "wowed" us in assembly
on the morning of January ll. The rip-roaring melodrama was Her
Fatal Beauty or A Shop Gi1'l's Honor written by Wilbur Braun. The
characters land I do mean charactersj were played by a star-lined cast.
"Her Fatal,Beauty" applies to none other than the heroine of the
production, Millie Blossom, played by blonde Shirley Johnson. The
mean old villain, Courtney Kenilworth, was done up in fine l9th cen-
tury villain style by Lit Bachus. Since the "drama" takes place in a de-
partment store, there had to be a boss, and he was portrayed by John
"Time is a boomerangu Hathaway. The boss's chic secretary is played
by pretty dark-haired Marilyn Wanty. Lucy Manville, the sophisticated
traveling saleswoman who was plenty all right, was posed by Harriett
Raiford. Then-no, we haven't forgotten tl1e handsome dashin' hero.
Noble Humdinger-this part was a Hnaturall' for Paul McCracken.
Finally we want to congratulate Jane Buell for her part as the aristo-
cratic mother, and Betty -luzek as the girl who loves Noble too. They
played the roles with distinction and ease.
You say, "Who sponsors this E-ne club?" Why, none other than the di-
rector of our junior play, that neat English and speech teacher-Miss
Lundgren of B-6.
ST BE MANAGEMENT
Under the able management and direction of Mr. Ernest Asmus. the
members of the stage handicraft and aft crew have distinguished them-
selves by the unusually high quality of their scenery and effects for the
many programs given throughout the past school year.
This group is made up of volunteer artists, property men, sound men,
electricians, and carpenters from the student body. In addition to pro-
viding the scenery for programs, the crew also produced the sound and
lighting effects. Most of their work is put in after school hours.
The outstanding work of the year was tl1e particularly successful and
effective staging shown in the beautiful pine-knot panels in the living
room in the scenes for Nine Girls. One effective sound scene occurred
in The Blizzard where the snow storm was so realistic that the audience
turned up their collars and shivered. At Christmas time the stage craft
group ingeniously designed life-like Christmas pictures for the back-
ground of the choral work which were in keeping with the spirit of the
lovely Christmas music. Tl1e junior play, "The Late Christopher Bean,"
and the operetta, "H.M.S. Pinaforef' climaxed their services for the year.
President Bob Willoughby, Vice-president Fae Kaufman, Secretary
Eileen Tait, and Treasurer Corinne Wenk led Masquers during its busy
first semester. For the second semester the club elected the following
officers: Fae Kaufman, president: Barbara Cole, vice-president, Portia
Middlesworth, secretary: and Corinne Mlenk, treasurer. The club mem-
bers presented -pantomimes, short one act plays, and excerpts from
During the second semester the club produced for an assembly "Of
Time and the Blizzard." This psychological farce, directed by Barbara
Cole and Mary Wymanf was a satire on the idea that the past, present,
and future are purely relative and interchangeable. The characters
were portrayed by Portia Middlesworth, joan Bromley, Mary Y'Vyman,
Fae Kaufman, Catherine Nvarren, Ed. Sandell, John Hathaway, and
Niki Kazarinoff. The lylasquers Club has had a very interesting and

The club took many interesting field trips to such places as
the medical museum, the physics laboratory, and the chemistry
building on the University of Michigan campus. There the club
members were shown such fascinating equipment of the scientihc
world as an electron microscope and a fiuoroscope. They also
enjoyed visiting chemistry laboratories and seeing experimental
animals in the medical building. I '
The officers for the first semester were President, jim Ueber-
horstg Vice-President and Program Chairman, Lloyd Schairerg
and Secretary-Treasurer, jack Tanner. The officers for the sec-
ond semester were Lloyd Schairer, Martha Mfells, and Nancy
Mr. Oldham deserves credit for inspiring his club members
to keep posted on the latest events in the world of science.
The Scribbler's Club, a group of junior and senior girls who
take typing and shorthand, is sponsored by Miss Helen McEwen
and Miss Frances Sadoff. President Marlene Busch, vice-president
Sarah Bommer, and secretary-treasurer Marie Yamamoto led
the club during the first semester. Sarah Bommer, Elaine White,
and Geraldine Meddaugh were elected president, vice-president,
and secretary-treasurer respectively for the second semester.
The object of the club is to help the students increase the
speed and accuracy of their shorthand and typing. Members
may work for typing and shorthand awards offered in the club.
Besides participating in skilled activities, the club sponsored
various social activities to promote friendly relations in the
group. There was a Christmas party in December and a Valen-
tine-theater party in February.
A number of individuals who employed girls on the C.O.T.
program addressed the club on the subject of desirable office
qualities. An open forum was held after the addresses. A few
former students of Ann Arbor High who are now employed
returned to relate their experiences.
The National Director of Civilian Marksmanship, realizing
the value of riHe training in schools, provided the Ann Arbor
High School Rifle Club with a plentiful supply of ammunition
this year. Consequently this last year our rifle team participated
in more matches than it has in past years.
The presidency of the organization was shared by joe Hooper
and Bruce Ross, joe being the president the first semester, and
Bruce the second.
Laurance Frederick and Bruce Ross received their experts'
rating from the N.R.A. as well as their sharpshooters rank from
the D.C.M. Other members who also received sharpshooters
rank were Don Dickason, James Bell, Ray Gokenbach, and
Roland McCollum. Roland McCollum won the club champion-
ship with a score of 343 Ollt of a possible 400. Jack Branson,
Harry Hawkins, Edwin Dennison, and Parker Pennington re-
ceived the rank of Marksman from the D.C.M.
Mr. Barkley, sponsor of the club, deserves much credit for the
success of the group.

The activities of the organization were limited somewhat by short-
ages of materials due to the unusual demands on supplies as a result
of the war.
One of the interesting projects of the club was the taking of the

rangement for the picture and studied the best techniques for making
a picture of a large group of people, '
The Spanish Club has had a very colorful year under the direction

grams: a musicale composed of Latin-American songs and dances, a
Christmas program at which a Mexican pinata was broken, an informal
chat by Kenneth Kenniston on life in Argentina followed by a movie

eight dual meets, winning four and losing four, and the
team finished third in the F ive-A League and sixth in
The team is still without a pool of its own and was
forced to practice under the worst possible conditions.
Half of the squad could practice only a half hour per

markable improvement throughout the year.
Outstanding member of the tankers was Bill Upthe-
grove, who amassed the enormous total of 97 points and
broke the state breaststroke record twice in dual meet
competition. Second high point winner was co-captain

The Ann Arbor High "Harriers" were definitely ham-
pered in their 1944 season by the epidemic of polio. Al-
though they were delayed two weeks at the beginning of
the season by the polio outbreak, the team ran through
all their competition with ease. Led by Ann Arbor
High's "Dead heat twins," Ed and Don Makielski, and
Captain Roger Kessler, the team won all of their meets
by wide margins. They were in line to win the 5-A cham-
pionship, but this honor was denied them by new out-
breaks of polio which caused the cancellation of all meets
for the rest of the season.
The team was composed of Fritz Kienzle, Bob Spen-
cer, Norwin Braun, Jack Welch, Andy Frank, Ted jud-
son, Don and Ed Makielski, and Roger Kessler. Next
year's captain-elect is Ted Judson.

The Girls Athletic Club, better known as the G.A.C.,
is under the line sponsorship of Miss Elva Bolle who is
new in our school this year. The girls competed in al-
most every sport from tackle football to the meanest
wrestling bout in order to strengthen their bodies to
become healthy women of tomorrow.
The leaders of the G.A.C. this year were Marjorie
Johnston, presidentg Doris Biddle, vice-presidentg Ger-
aldine Kern, secretary-treasurer. Their duties for the year
were to lead the club and establish standards for it.
Managers for the leading fall sports were Jean Smith,
field hockeyg Geraldine Kern, volleyballg Maxine David-
son, basketball. Minor sports managers were Mary Wat-
kins, badmintong Geraldine Kern, table tennisg Christine
Bilakos, special activities. Spring sports were softball,
tennis, riding. and golf.
The hot dog stand, open for business in any kind of
weather on the exciting nights of our school football
games, was the highlight of the G.A.C. year. Hungry
crowds were delighted with refreshments during the
game. The girls also directed the semi-annual sale of blue
books, an ever present need of the harassed students at
examination time. The club also contributed money
toward the fund for the student telephone service.
All girls in school who are interested in the health and
physical fitness are eligible to participate in any of the
girls' athletics, and to become members of G.A.C. Letters
are awarded at the end of each semester to girls who
qualify on the basis of points in leadership, scholarship,
and athletic ability.
The members of the Girls Athletic Club have enjoyed
another successful year of teamwork and fun.

We are especially fortunate at Ann Arbor High
School in having offered to us so complete and wide a
range of subjects. College preparatory courses, as well
as vocational courses in many fields are offered. Every
student has the privilege of selecting a vocation and
preparing himself for it. By, accepting this opportu-
nity in high school we are MEETING THE FUTURE
The Cooperative Occupational Training program at
Ann Arbor High School is patterned after the apprentice-
ship idea but is designed primarily to meet the needs ol'
the high school student. The program is open to juniors
and seniors, who are in school half the day and on the job
the other half. The student's schooling includes courses
related to his job, and he receives credit toward his grad-
uation for his work on the job.
There are a number of benefits received from this pro-
gram, the main ones are that the boys and girls learn to
work, to accept responsibility, and to experience working
in the occupation of their choice before actually com-
pleting their schooling.
The present cooperative program has students em-
ployed in olhces doing filing, mailing, bookkeeping, typ-
ing, and taking dictationg as dental assistants, in garages
as mechanics, as laboratory assistants, in millinery shops,
and in the hospitals.
Mr. Richard VVarren as the coordinator acts to pro-
tect the interests of the students, the employer, and
schoolg and he arranges the educational program ol' the
trainee. The program has been very successful and well
received. To prove this it can be pointed out that this
year one girl was employed as a dental assistant, and as
a result of her successful performance, four additional
dental assistants have been requested lor next year.
This cooperative occupational training is preparing
the boys and girls for their vocations and the future.

The class of '45 began their eventful year with the election of Nick Falcone,
Dick Rogers, and joan Slater as president, vice-president, and secretary, re-
spectively. The Senior class play was only the hrst of the many successful activi-
ties of the class. The play "Nine Girls" was well received, and contrary to
tradition, the cast was made up entirely of girls. The Senior Frolic was held in
the Michigan League ballroom, with music furnished by Nick Jabe and his
orchestra. Something both new and entertaining was the Senior Talent Assem-
bly under the direction of the senior executive committee. In keeping with
tradition the Senior Prom was held in the Michigan League ballroom and
proved to be the big social event of the year. The fun had at the class picnic as
well as during the Class Day program will not be forgotten. Impressive gradua-
tion exercises closed the year for the seniors.
Though they leave Ann Arbor High, we are sure that the members of the class
of '45 will always remember their senior year whether they take a job, go to
college or enter the armed services of their country as so many have done. Good
luck to them!
