The team made their debut with Flint Central and bowed after a very hard fought battle The following week they traveled to Saginaw where Lady Luck befriended the Pioneers in a real heart breaker which was played in the rain and mud The next battle was with Ferndale and we more than avenged the defeat of last year From that game on until the final gun went off at the end of the season the boys in purple and white proved that they were fighting P10 neers The only really close game was with Lansing Eastern when the first team had to put their all in 1t to eke out a five point margin Four championship teams during the past six years' Thats the record Kip Taylor and Dobbre Drake have established in th halls of fame at Ann Arbor High Kip has signed a contract with Syracuse University and will help Clarence Munn who is from the University of Michigan coach football there It is with sincere regret that we bid him farewell and we want to assure him that his able work will linger long in our memories Kips place as head foot ball coach will be capably filled by Dobbie in the future This 1S no easy job but if there is anyone who has the ability it s Dobbie Four regulars Ed Gillespie LeRoy Etzel Hoy Weber and George Hilla were given berths on the All Five A team Gillespie and Etzel were also given honorable mention of some of the coveted state teams For the first time in the history of Ann Arbor High School the Pioneers placed five men 1n the All City Football team These all stars were Etzel Weber Koehler Hrlla and the flashy halfback and captain of this year s Five A champs Hank Platt Don Schneider was elected captain to lead our team to glory next year SCHEDULE Ann Arbor Flint Central Seprerrrber 2 1945 Ann Arbor Saginaw Arthur Hill September 2 1945 Ann Arbor Ferndale October 1945 Ann Arbor Lansing Sexton October 1945 Ann Arbor Battle Creek October 1945 Ann Arbor Lansing Eastern October 1945 Ann Arbor Iackson November 9 1845 FOOTBALL-'First Team Row 1 Dick Wagner, Dick Free' land, Don Schneider, Ed Gillespie, George Henry, Monte Hopkins, Dale Schroen, Walter Koehler, Roy Weber, Nuel Smock.

Bill Niethammer Eleanor Hamer lim Godfrey Sophomorcs Fall meant for the sophomore class a new school, new teachers, and new friends to make. For the rest of the school September brought a class which individually, and as a whole added considerably to the spirit of Ann Arbor High. After students from the rival junior high schools met each other at the renowned sophomore party, and began to realize what friends they could be. the whole school awoke to the potentialities of our youngest and liveliest class. Clubs, dramatics tremember "The Happy Iourney" in assembly?l, sports, and Student Council all claimed a share of their time and enthusiasm. Now as the school year approaches its end, everyone is sure that next fall the new junior class will be one of which we can be proud, and that before too long our sophomores will be dignified but still gay and active seniors. The officers for this year's class include Bill Niethammer, president: lim Godfrey, vice-president: and Eleanor Hamer, secretary. The executive board, which has been the guiding light of sophomore activities, is made up of these officers as well as Nancy Watkins, Ioanne Ketelhut, Brad Harding, Art Haibel, and Konrad Matthaei.

The twelve members were chosen from the applicants on a basis of previous experi- ence in shooting. Verna Zill was elected president, Doris Biddle, vice-president, and Miriam Iohnsmiller, treasurer in their organization meeting. Because of the limited facilities the club was divided into two groups which took turns shooting Tuesday mornings. The groups kept a record of their scores and at the end of the semester the winning team was treated by the losers. The girls also attempted some novelty and outdoor shooting. Despite the many range difficulties, the girls enjoyed profit- able and interesting practice.

H emphasizes learning by practical application and experience. In tune with this policy his crew designs the scenery builds it sets it up, and paints it. Then they arrange the most tasteful stage light- ing to match the scenery. Evidence of their ability was apparent in the stage-setting triumphs, for The Perfect Alibi, given by the senior class in Novem- ber, Iolanthe, the Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta given by A Cappella in March, and You Can't Take It With You, the junior class play. The beautiful still sets for the ,Christmas program were also a tal- ented product of the ingenuity of Mr. Balas and his crew. Much of the credit for the atmosphere and spirit behind Ann Arbor High School's varied productions must be given to this hard-working Committee. 83 SCIENCE CLUB Le!! to right How l Cecll Taylor Harrlet Ayan Ned Stmes Row 2 Madelame Gaut Tony Templeton Ioyce Caspers Sally Wanzeck Anne Waterman Leroy Gardner How 3 Ted Metzger Ioe Harrx son V1rg1lFa1rbanks Mr Iorgen son Herbert Andre Lyle Waters Clatre Eschelbach gif ,7f X s T 39515.14 84 Sentence Club Any person walktng down B corrrdor would th1nk that Ann Arbor Hrqh School rncluded a regular medrcal department Through the medrum of versatlle showcase drsplays students have been shown the evrls of narcotlcs and alcohollc beverages oth r graphrc ar rangements showed plastrcs surgrcal mstruments and electrrcal equrpment Such have be n the assrduous efforts of tue scrence club gu1ded by Mr Iorgenson to educate the student body Other act1v1t1es of th1S lntellectually curlous group have rn cluded tourmg the screntlfr parts of the campus and seerng such thrngs as the cyclotron the wrnd tunnel and the mar1ne pool The1r meetrngs have been enlrvened by demonstratrons on 11qu1d a1r trre preventrves and other mterestrng prolects of the members Off1CeIS for th1s valuable year ID the club hrstory have been Lewrs Srmes presrdent Dan Haab V1CepI'eS1d9I'1l Harrret Ayan s cretary and Cecrl Taylor program charrman The showcase was under the supervrsron of these offrc rs w1th the help of Herbert Andre and Tony Templeton The bulletm boards rn B corrrdor and study halls were kept up to date w1th s rentxfxc news by Madelame Gault and Anne Waterman Altogether the scrence club has passed a year worthwh1le not only to the members but to the school X' u X X ' x t ' I I ' ' ' - Q ' . . . , ., I 1 A I I - I I ' ' .

Bill Upthegrove 3 SENIOR OFFICERS Ed Gillespie Mary Belle Iames Arthur Zill Senior Class The Class of '46 will not soon forget their last year at Ann Arbor High School as the "high and mighty" seniors. This eventful year began with the election of their class officers-Ed Gillespie, Art Zill and MaryBelle Iarnes. After a wonderful football season with Hank Platt, the captain, and many other star seniors helping to gain the 5A League Championship, the class was on its way. ' The Senior Play, "The Perfect Alibi" will be remembered as the perfect mystery. The Frolic, held in March, with Gene DeVine and his orchestra, was one of the biggest and best yet. Reviving the old tradition of a Senior trip, the class succeeded in planning and taking the boat cruise to Mackinac Island. It was the first trip of its kind since the war began, and everyone had a wonf derful time. The Senior Assembly in April was a great success and a lot of fun for everyone in it. All during the year, the seniors were participating in sports, assemblies, clubs, committees, the Optimist and Omega staffs, the operetta, band, and various other activities. Their last week at Ann Arbor High held many events: The effective Bacca- laureate service, the elegant Senior Banquet, the super Senior Prom, the hilari- ous Class Day, and finally the long-awaited Commencement. The Class of '46 has much to remember: but, being the first class in many years to graduate during peacetime, they have even more to look forward to. May the rest of their lives be as successful as their last year at Ann Arbor High School-"Good luck, Seniors."
