The Board of Educahon Board members are elected by the people each April. They hire teachers, approve expenditure of money, and see that the school is kept in good condition. The members have wiselv directed an educational program for its constituents: lt is assured that We will have good schools, both grade and high for some years to come. This year has been most eventful-Hooppolc voted successfully in October to be annexed to the Annawan-Alba High school district. When things ap- peared rather dark in respect to us maintaining our high school in the future, the board of education had the support of the vast majority of our rural neighbors and local residents when it recommended the formation of a community unit district. All areas responded and the vote carried by a seven and one-half to one major- ity. The willingness of the people to support such a project is a vote of confidence given to the past and 'present members of the board of education. A new board was elected to reorganize Annawan- Alba, two-thirds of Yorktown, and a portion of Corn- wall townships. .Better educational opportunities can now be offered to the children of this new unit district. ANNAWAN TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES Left to right: Marion Arnold, Louis I. Morey, Gail M. Peart. A trustee must be a resident of the township and twenty-one years of age. A trustee is elected for a term of three years. Trustees shall hold regular semi-annual meetings on the first Mondays of April and October. They must examine moneys and effects of the corpora- tion. They may receive any gift or grant made for the use and good of the school. Trustees are guardians of township school funds, ob- serve the condition of the school, and appoint the school treasurer. Fortunately, Annawan Township's schools are in good hands. ln 1787 the Northwest Ordinance was passed, where- by the sixteenth section in each township was given to the township to help support education. Most of such sections have been sold. ALL IN HONOR OF OUR SCHOOL The former Annawan High School was destroyed by fire February 2, 1922. The building was burned to the ground, completely destroying all records. The new Annawan-Alba Township High School was built in 1924-,lt was dedicated in the early spring of 1925. ,, at Zig ' 77 ,nz ,fx fame I: M Kr yl K "1 H I 1 I 'lf hwll I A I ' I lg Ilf.

D oralee Pont Our class adviser was Miss johnson. lVe emerged from our initiation with flving colors and looked forward to the next year when we could 'fdish it out" instead of "taking it." All of the members of the class returned for our sophomore year. Ray Shaw presided as president of our class: Doralee Pont as vice presidentg Don Moon as sceretaryg Dwainc Dynes as treasurer, and LaVonne Spears as reporter.

Our elected officers for this year were: Doralee Pont as president, Elsie Powell, vice president, Dwaine Dynes as secretary-treasurer, and Don Moon, reporter. Student Council members were LaVonne Spears and Dean Ouart. Members lost during this year were Ron- ald Swearingen, Shirley Croegaert, and Kenneth Clark. Due to the leadership of our class officers we were very active. Under the direction of Miss Swirmicky the play K'The Funny Brats" was presented. The junior-Senior banquet, sponsored by the junior class, was a huge success. The decorations were built around a Navy theme. liugene Eilers and Donna Mae Minnaert were crowned king and queen of the homecoming as a result of a campaign conducted by the junior class. XVhen we returned for our senior year we found four new members. They were Beatrice Minnaert, Margene Gay, Ronald Goembel and Bill Price who were former pupils in the Hooppole High School. Under the leader- ship of our class adviser, Mr. Osborn, we elected the following officers: President, Bill Priceg vice president. Dean Ouartg secretary, Marilyn Nowers, treasurer, Don Moong reporter, Ronald Goeinbel. Student Council rep- resentative was Doralee Pont. The entire class took part in our play f"l'attletale."

Dwaine Dynes wills his happy disposition to Edward Jorgensen. just be sure not to laugh at the wrong time, Ed. Nathan Ericson leaves his uncalled-for comments to Eugene Eilers. just be careful who you make them to, Gene. Margene Gay wills her ability to cooperate in class to Eugene Vander- snick. Ronald Goembel leaves his car to jack Hulslander so jack will never have to walk. Marilyn Miller leaves her "horn temper to Barbara Houch and Norma Bollengier. Always think twice, girls, before saying anything. Beatrice Minnaert leaves her excitement at basketball games to Shirley Thompson and Shirley Fronk. Don Moon leaves his ability to serenade a different lady every night to Lowell Gerber. Now be careful, Lowell, who the girls are. Marilyn Nowers leaves her studious disposition to Frank Seyller and Thomas Dhamers in hopes that it will guide them through their senior years successfully. Williaiim Price wills his athletic ability to Stanley Billiet and Vernon Bol- lengier, but henceforth never leaves his girl from Annawan High to anyone. Elsie Powell wills her ability to get things done at school instead of at home to Phyllis Deaker. VV ith this trait, Phyllis, you will never be unprepared for class. Doralee Pont leaves her desire to talk to Betty Thompson third hour to Pattie Thornbrugh. Doralee knows in doing this, her trait will be well guard- ed and Betty will never be lonesome. Ray Shaw wills his arguing, debating, and his interesting opinion to Louis T eerlinck. LaVonne Spears wills her quietness and shyness to Dolores Ufheil and Helen DeDecker. Think how quiet the school will be next year. Barbara Thompson leaves her ability to invade all men to Rita Croegaert. Seniors believe this will make Rita's future happier. To Greta Gail Peart, Barbara leaves her wavy hair. Dean Ouart wills his musical ability to Helen Whittingtoii. To the Junior class we leave the seats by the windows in hopes they can fill them as well as we did.,VVe also leave any of our gum that we may have disposed of on the seats. Our place on the principal's "B" list goes to any junior who is willing to work for it. Our friends that were made during our four years areuto be kept for our- selves. PROPHECY IN THE YEAR mo we FIND: It just happens as the story goes, that the three wizards are spending an evening togeth- er. They are wondering about their classmates and what each is doing. lhey decided to try their old trick of consulting the 'cOuija Board," and this is what it tells them. Elsie Powell is the manager of the "Forget Your Troubles lnnl' which is located high up in the mountains of California. All the for- lorn go there to receive motherly affection. The United States is represented in the Olympic games this year by their famous track star, Bill Price. He is accompanied to the Olympics by his famous wife, Marilyn Now- ers, who is writing for the "Dainty Damselsf' This couple has received world-wide fame for their famous contributions. Beatrice Minnaert is making millions at her exclusive Motorcycle shop on New York's Fifth avenue. She and her husband are the world's most daring motorcycle riders. Our hats are off to you. C. A. T. has iust acclaimed Ronnie Goem- bel the star of his own program, f'Fiction and Facts from Ron's Almanacfl His new sensa- tion, Margene Gay, is singing songs and iin- gles written by Ron. lVhat's the hour, kids? Doralee Pont is a cow-girl on a ranch in Texas. She inherited the ranch shortly after leaving high school at Annawan from no other than Tom Owens. ln her new work she enjoys mostly the long evenings when all the work is done and all the cowboys sit around the fire and sing "Oh Don't Leave Me Little Cow-girl." Dwaine Dynes is known as the worldls greatest hog raiser. He specializes in "Bertie Berkshiresf, There was a report in the paper that Dwaine is planning to run for president on the "New Look" ticket. Barbara Thompson has studied art in New York for four years. She has made use of this education and is now the world's famous car- toonist. Some people say she is better than VV alt Disney ever was. Some of the charac- ters that she has made famous are: fWVally, the lN"olf," Hjiinmy, the Chipmunkv and "lVilly, the lVeasel." Don Moon is well known because of his great inventio-n, "The Rocket Ship." He has made several expeditions to Mars. Each ex- pedition takes two minutes and thirteen sec- onds. Don has made this trip several times and he reports that the average height of the people there is sixteen feet and their weight is two tons. He tells us that people walk on their hands instead of their feet. He also states that all the earth's people who ,visit there are very welcome. Nlarilynn Miller is a successful housewife and mother. They are still residing on a farm south of Mineral with their triplets. The Powerls Girls are now under the com- petent supervision of Dean Ouart. He is a ballet instructor for five hundred girls. He teaches them to carry themselves with poise and grace. All of the girls are very fond of their instructor who has proven himself to be successful in his work. LaVonne Spears is the new manager of New York's largest dress shop on Fifth ave- nue. In her spare time she and her husband go by airplane to Hawaii to entertain the na- tives, occasionally they visit his folks south- west of town. Ray Shaw is now known the world over- especially by the women. He has discovered a new kind of hose which is known as "Steam Hose." You step into a steamed room for thirty seconds and then come out with the most beautiful pair of hose you ever owned. After stepping into a room with a tempera- ture of OO the substance will turn to the reg- ularly beautiful "Skvlon." They are longer- lasting, more beautiful, cheaper, and quicker to apply. Nathan Ericson, after years of hard labor at the Ford garage in Annawan, has bought the world's largest auto industry. Of course, he is living a life of luxury.

Eugene Eilers Since our school days are coming to an end in another year, we really got down to busi- ness to set an example for the freshmen and sophomores, and prove to the seniors that we, too, are growing up. All during the basketball season we work- ed hard selling coke, hot dogs, candy, and popcorn at the home games. Some of the members of the junior Eng- lish class presented a one-act play, "The Ad- vice Doctor," for the State Inspector, April 6th. This play illustrated the necessity of studying English literature and grammar while in school. ll-Vhen Spring was just around the corner the juniors picked out a play, "Campus Quar- antine," and started to work on it. They fin- ished and a hilarious product was given to an appreciative audience in the high school gym- nasium, May 12. Those who were not in the play started to work out plans and details for the junior- Senior banquet, an event to honor the seniors and faculty. A theme was decided upon and it was carried out to the smallest detail. Although we believe that this year we have worked harder and have had more fun than ever before, we are anxiously awaiting the day when we will be honored and sophisti- cated seniors! I!

VV e were happy to wel- come six new pupils from Hooppole into our class. This enabled us to boast of being the largest class in school. The new members are Donna jean Price, Marilyn Fehlman, Avis Greenwood, Vernon Blackert, Charlotte Greenwood and Leslie Stockton. One of the first things we did was to elect class officers.

VV e are going to save the money we made and use it next year when we shall have to sponsor the jun- ior-Senior Prom. Of course we have enjoyed these first two years of our high school education, but we are looking forward with great pleasure to next year when we will become the "upper classmenn of A. H. S.

September 30, we were highly decor- ated for initiation. During the day the girls had to wear men's overalls, their shirts back- wards, and their dad's shoes. Their hair was worn in pigtails. The boys wore dresses and boots. Everyone had a balloon tied to his hair, a raw egg in one pocket, and his arm tied in a sling. VVe had to provide everyone with can- dy and gum upon request. At noon we had to sweep the sidewalk in front of the school houseg and, of course, the cameras clicked. VVe selected the following class officers: President ................,. ...........

Each year We real- ize that the business of farming is be- coming more and more intricate. Just fifteen years ago farmers around Anna- wan had heard of limestone. but had class- ified it as something that was hardly worth while. Hill drop fertilizers were some- thing few people used. Hybrid corn was almost unheard of until 1935 and now farm- ers use it practically one hundred per cent. Each year we are developing new varieties of oats, beans, and corn. New methods of fertilizing, new breeding plans for our livstock, new crops, new rotations, methods of soil conservation, and fertiliza- tion have been introduced. It is these things that we try to cover in our Agriculture classes. We try to' do it in a way that the student will be able to put them into practice or at least see them in operation. Our chief tools then are field trips and farming programs. Our motto's "Learning by Doing." COMMERCE During this year each of the various commercial classes have had to overcome the handicap of having four different teachers. The typing I and II students have work- ed hard to develop their ability to type- write their required words per minute. Everyone has achieved their goal. Commercial law students say it is very interesting to form cases and also solve them. We think our bookkeeping students have learned enough that they can keep books for a businessman or themselves. Shorthand students have concentrated on developing their speed. LANGUAGES Three years of English are required, al- though four years are offered. This past year English classes have been interest- ing ones, having been taught by Mrs. Browning. In all of the English classes both grammar and literature are taught. English I studied "A Midsummer Night's Dream." For several days freshmen work- ed earnestly on booklets about this play. English II studied "Julius Caesar." Only fivergirls were in English IV. This class studied "Macbeth" and made books to il- lustrate the play. Magazine and newspaper items were read and reported upon. Latin was taught again this year after a two-year recess. The five members of the class were: Norma Bollengier, Geraldine Frank, John Gripp, Lois Maarman and Pattie Thornbrugh. 4 IN ACTION HOMEMAKING Homemakers for America. In order to build a strong country, homes must be back of it, Although home economics is not required, many girls choose it as one of their electives. The home economics department is lo- cated in the new addition. Our instructor is Miss Betty Ann Ohlmacher. The girls are divided into two classes. This year two electric stoves, an elec- tric refrigerator, and other small items of new equipment were added to make our department more attractive and efficient. During our course of study we have served hot lunches for the school pupils. sewed attractive garments for ourselves and studied good grooming. For a period of three weeks homemak- ing 1II and agriculture III changed classesg thus the girls, under the direction of Mr. Geiger, were instructed in simple household repair tasks. MATHEMATICS Under the guidance of Mr. Ehrig the students have attempted to learn some basic facts of geometry and algebra. In geometry the past year they have been studying how to construct and bi- sect angles and triangles, to draw circles, find diameters and how to measure them. They have had a review of some algebra. The students have studied similar poly- gons, areas of polygons, and regular poly- gons. They also learned theroms. In algebra they have been studying about general numbers and their use in formu- las and equations. They have solved equa- tions having one or two unknowns. They have learned how to make graphs and how to read them. The students have learned the use of algebraic fractions in formulas, equations, and plain straight problems. They have had to learn a few rules as well as a few terms throughout the school year. "SOCIAL SCIENCE" United States history is one of our most enjoyable classes in school. It is taught entirely different from any other class. The class is taught by the lecture method. We take the notes. Thus at the end of a six weeks we put our notes into a note book, illustrate them and turn them in for a grade. We also have been writing dis- sertations every six weeks, using "Tura- bian's Rules for Dissertation Writ1ng." World history is taught by the discussion method. The students studied about the early civilizations, empires, and languages. also, the story of new areas and trends of our time. This class is also a discussion class. The work is divided into two subjects. The first semester we studied czvics. The last semester was devoted to ec-onomxcs which proved very interesting. We have had sev- eral interesting debates. The teacher of social sciences is Mr. Osborn. IN ACTION BOYS' PHYSICAL Under the direction of Mr. Ehrig we have enjoyed a great variety of activities during the year. During the fall we played softball. touch football, and six-man foot- ball. The freshman and sophomore boys played a football game with Atkinson. When winter came we began having class in the gymnasium. We played such socialized games as basketball, badmin- ton. and volleyball. We also studied bas- ketball fundamentals and did calisthenics, As spring approached and the weather began getting warmer we again went out- side and began practicing baseball, track, soccer, and archery. All boys who were inteersted in baseball entered a tournament between classes dur- ing the spring. This contest was won by the senior boys. GIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION P. E. is required of every girl in school that passes her physical examination. There are two classes, and each girl at- tended the class of her choice. Physical education should not only develop the body and keep it fit, but should teach girls the joys of recreation, how to work, play, and get along with each other. During our classes we are instructed in volleyball and basketball during the win- ter months: and, soccer, archery, baseball, badminton. and croquet during the spring ini? fall. Every now and then we go on a 1 e. Not all of our P. E. is confined to the period set aside for us each day. Last winter about thirty girls got together, formed four basketball teams and had a basketball tournament. From some of the groans when Miss Ohlmacher calls "showers" it seems evi- dent that the girls either do not care for showers, or, they dislike to have their classes end. SCIENCE CLASSES EDUCATION Under the guidance of Miss Walters some of the students have tried to learn some facts about general science, biologv. and physics. During the fifth six weeks we were sorry to have Miss Walters leave us for three weeks becnuse of illness: however. she was replaced by some of the other teachers and the classes continued. The biology students have studied about plant and animal life. In physics the students have tried hard to learn some of the basic facts of light, magnetism, and electricity. The students who take general science have studied about planets, transporta- tion, communication, heat, light, elec- tricity, and many other things. IN ACTION BAND Under the excellent direction of Mr. Vitto the band had a very successful year. Some of the features on our program were the annual spring concert and the contest. We also had the honor to play for several assembly programs. A basketball game at Annawan High was never com- plete without the band. It gave us an op- portunity to play for a very appreciative audience. Besides playing in a group, some of our members played as soloists. Through the help of the Band Boosters' Club money is being raised for new uni- forms which we hope to have in the near future. Special honors go to the saxophone quartet which is composed of Robert Now- ers. Dwaine Dynes, Phyllis Decker, and Pattie Thornbrughg and Carol Nowers, our marimba player. They won first places in glse state contest held in Macomb, April GIRLS' CHORUS At the beginning of our school year nearly every girl in our school came to chorus. Everyone was interested and will- ing to learn. At first we thought we were going to be without a teacher until Mr. Osborn offered any spare time that he might have to do chorus work. Under his direction we were able to have chorus once a week, until recently. We hope that next year there can be more time given to vocal work. We have very good talent and feel that it could be developed into a beautiful singing group. This should add much to the educational aspects of the school. . BOYS' CHORUS Every Thursday morning during the fifth period Mr. Osborn held a musical period with sixteen members participat- ing. Many surprising things were discov- ered, even to the boys themselves. If any- one were listening they would find the boys doing very well. During the last six weeks it was necessary to discontinue chorus. We are sure that there are many boys in school who are capable of sing- mg. The boys, however. did not appear on any programs. They sang mostly for their own pleasure. WHAT THEY SAID As this year ends we look back and remember some of the amusing inci- dents that happened. Most of them are sayi tongue, for instance, in physics one day: ngs, some which are "slips of the Miss Walters: I want five boys to remain after class tonight. Ray Shaw: VV hat for?

I t of wrong pronunciations. Mrs. students. lt seems as though she ts and Shelly. can see how our school year was e enjoyable. As we are about to take our departure from Annawan I-ligh we look back over the year and remember many things which we have seen. Perhaps you will remember them, also. Of course most people will remember the good things longest so we will begin by tell-- ing you of a new organization among the par- ents and friends of the school. The Band Boosters organized during the winter and elected their president, Ray Bollengier. Their aim was to earn money to buy badly needed band uniforms. One night loyal friends came to the school and brought contributions for a huge auction sale. As a result of the sale, 31.000 was earned in one night. This made the purchase of the uniforms a reality instead of a dream. The homemaking department has been as- sured, by means of a contract, of having a new stove and frigidaire every year, for five years, at the cost price of only one stove and frigidaire, plus freight charges. There are always a great number of jokes made about "green freshmen" but our fresh- WHAT WE SAW men really deserve praise for the fine job they did in entertaining the eighth graders. Next year's freshmen have been introduced to high school life and will not feel quite so strange when they enter in the fall. Under the direction of Mrs. Browning, the junior English class presented a play to stress good English. The title of the play was "The Advice Doctor." During the year we have had three assein- bly programs given by professional enter- tainers. These programs were presented by a harpist, a makeup artist, and a magician. Since it would be a strange school if no one did anything wrong we will tell you of some of the things we have seen. yA,t one time dur- ing the year we had a fad of water guns that lasted so long but no longer. Occasionally dif- ferent colored bubbles floated around. And, too, some people tried tor "get byl' on other people's work and receive credit for them- selves. A Altogether this has been a memorable year with many pleasures and some hardships. . WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE As we go out this year to face the future, we can think of several things we would like to see in and about the school. A complete teaching staff, without any mishaps. More assemblies with high school students participating, for instance. Bud Brown sing- ing more often. A ' A stronger governing student council. Movies that the entire school could see would be most enjoyable. More organized dances, semi-formal and formal. Less girls who continually talk baby talk- it does get rather monotonous. More chorus workg also a spring concert. Chorus robes would add that certain touch, More advanced studies taught, such as: chemistry, trigonometry, speech, industrial and fine arts. A dramatics club should be or- ganized, also, a debate team. During the winter months a noon lunch program, We think, would prove very success- ful. Organized activities at noon hours with everyone participating. Organized activities between schools with less rivalry but better sportsmanship shown. ,I lfVe would like to see how Shirley Fronk would look with short straight hair. 7 Less fly catching gum chewers. A decorated coke room and activity room would be ideal. The girls' locker room could use a little feminine polish. Class officers and annual staff elected at the end of the school year, to take office the next fall. I Baccalaureate held in the church. Valedic- torian and salutatorian leading the baccalau- reate and commencement exercises. Electric clocks and calendars in each room. A new and larger library with many more books. .. Lockers to replace our desks. Home rooms instead ofa study hall. The school lawn beaufified. As years go by may Ainnawan have many great improvements, and good ,ole A. H.

This year we had one speciali-the Athletic-Scholarship Award. It was awarded to Louis Teerlinck. The requirements were that he had to be in the upper fourth of his class for there semesters and be a leader of his class. To get the award he also had to be a letterman. The purpose of the award is to promote good scholarship, sports- manship and leadership. This is the first year that Annawan has been a member of the National Athletic Scholarship Society. VV e hope that next year that more than one boy receives this award. D. A. R. AWARD 'ww MARILYN NOWERS Marilyn Nowers, a senior of Annawan High School, was chosen by the student body and faculty to receive the D.A.R. Award. This award is given on the basis of dependability, good citizenship, service, leader- ship and patriotism. ,During her tour years at Annawan High School, Marilyn has always been a leader in the high school activities. She has taken part in band, chorus, G.A.A., F.H.A., and was a cheerleader. Marilyn is a fine example of what every high school girl should strive to be. The students are very proud of her. NCJRMAL SCHOLARSHIP , r . 1 DORALEE PGNT MARILYN NOXVERS ELSIE POWELL Each year a normal scholarship is offered to one of the three highest ranking students in the senior class. He is then eligible to go to any State Teachers' college that he wishes to without paying tuition. He is also allowed 1580.000 per year for other expenses. Doralee Pont was the highest ranking SILI- dent in the senior class this year with an aver- age of 4.7. Doralee is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Pont. She has been a band mem- ber for four years. She also was a member of the G.A.A. and F.H.A. Doralee has had ma- jor roles in both the junior and senior plays. ln the Review, our school paper, she has tak- en an active part. She was class treasurer in her freshman year, vice president in her soph- omore year and president her junior year. Doralee is also a member of the Student Coun- cil this year. She has performed with distinc- tion the many duties that have been assigned to her during her four years of high school work. , Marilyn Nowers will graduate with an av- erage of 4.0. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Nowers. She was president of the freshman class. Marilyn has belonged to the G.A.A. and the F.H.A. for the past four years. She has been a band member for four years. She was a cheerleader in her sophomore and junior years. Marilyn took part in the junior and senior plays and was an office girl in her junior year. She has taken part in the annual, Review, and chorus. This year Mari- lyn was chosen by the pupils and faculty to receive the D.A.R. award. She has been a pi- anist and has played at many of the school functions. Elsie Powell is another honor student grad- uating with a 4.0 average for the past four years. She was class vice president in her jun- ior year. She has been an active member of the G.A.A. and the F.H.A. for the past year. Elsie also took part in the junior and senior plays. She was a librarian and office girl in her junior year. As a junior she was chosen to attend Girl's State as a representative of Annawan. Elsie has been a member of the Pep club for years. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Powell. SCHOLARSHIP Scholarship is the most important part of high school life. Too often it does not receive sufficient recognition. In order to be an honor student one must have at least a 4.5 average. Giving each A five points, B four points, and C three points, a total of at least eighteen points would be needed to have such an average. Each six weeks an honor roll is composed of students achieving these ratings. Special merit is given for four A's or a 5.0 aver- age. Seniors who have nineteen points or a 4.75 average are qualified for the princi- pal's "B" list. Letters are given for the scholarship the same as are letters given for athletics. A scholarship banquet was held this year in honor of students who maintained at least a 4.0 or B average throughout the school year. Thirty-three pupils or about 41 per cent of the pupils enrolled had a 4.0 average and were guests at the scholar- ship banquet. This was an admirable rec- ord of which all of us should be proud. VALENTINE QUEEN On the night of February 14, the Student Council sponsored a Vaelntine Dance which was held in the school gymnasium. The gymnasium was decoraged with a beautiful red and white false ceiling with red and white streamers around the edge of the gymnasium. Tables and floor lamps were placed around the gymnasium. "Doc" I-lunt's orchestra furnished the music, Shirley Fronk was elected queen of the Valentine dance. Rose Wancket, Marilyn Nowers, Elaine Vanl-Iyfte, and Gretchen Johnson were her attendants. Shirley was crowned by Bill Price, the president of the Student Council. BOYS' STATE Louis Teerlinck was the boy chosen by the American Legion to represent the An- nawan Chapter at Boy's, State. The pur- pose of this program is to teach the youth of today constructive attitudes toward the American form of government. Louis Teerlinck, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Teerlinck, is a junior in Annawan- Alba Township High School. He was se- lected on the basis of his scholarship, lead- ership, and service. Louis has been active in many extra-acurricular activities. He has been an outstanding student ranking among the top third of his class. GIRLS' STATE The Legion Auxiliary each year chooses a girl who will have the privilege of going to Girl's State. The purposes of this pro- gram is similar to that of Boy's State-to learn the American form of government. Shirley Fronk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Fronk, will be the Annawan repre- sentative this year. Shirley is quiet and gtuciiious. She will retain much at Gii-l's a e. ff' anis' Up Q ? if W 3 0269 , GU f ,W 5 E ffm G .F JSA? f Ili ,L ' IIETIWUES ALUMNI The officers of the Alumni for l947'1948, are: President ..,.,,...........,......,. ,.,, H oward Earley Vice President ....,...,..,,,..., Irene Maarman Secretary-Treasurer ..........

This year a basketball game between the Alumni and the high school team was played. Following the game a dance was held during which re- reshments were served. Everyone seems to enjoy himself on this occasion. STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council consists of two members from each class. the president and one other member elected by the class. Through the Student Council a stu- dent form of school government is set up. Besides aiming for a better school the members of the Student Council sponsored a formal Valentine dance, and an all- school picnic at the end of the school year. LETTERMAN'S CLUB This club was formed several years ago by the boys who have earned letters. In order to be a member you must have earned a letter in football, basketball, or track. We have thirteen members, mostly jun- iors and seniors, Coach Ehrig is our spon- sor.

THEY CALLED IT COURTIN' + Wouldn't it be nice if we could look back through the years and watch what Grandma and Grandpa did on a date? just for fun letis try it and com- pare Grandma's dates with our modern ones. First, we find that Grandpa has been simply begging for the buggy all week long, and finally his Pa has co-nsented to let him have it for the eve- ning. Grandpa gets all dressed up in his best Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes, slicks back his hair, then goes out to "hitch old Dohbin' to the shayf' At last he is off, with a feeling of perfect bliss, to visit the girl of his dreams. When Grandpa arrives. Grandma greets him very sedately and ushers him into the front parlor. He takes his seat at one end of the sofa, while she sits down very straight and dignified on the other end-perhaps to spend a whole evening with the family. The conversation begins with the usual accounts of the weather and rather awkwardly slips into the day's happenings. After- wards, there is a short pause during which Grandpa decides to steal one of those "corner-of-the-eye" glances at Grandma, only to find that she has the same idea. Blushingly Grandma gets up and offers to get some light refresh- ments from the kitchen. VVhen Grandma returns, she finds Grandpa hilariously engaged in the- family picture album. He somehow uncovered it from the rear of the book cupboard, where she had it hidden. She decides to endure the laughing re- marks, so they sit down on the sofa Cthis time a little closerj and spend the rest of a wonderful evening, laughing over Grandma's childhood scenes while munching cookies and drinking lemonade. Ah, yes! Grandma was quite a gal with her high-top shoes, front parlor entertaining, and, of course, those scrumpuous bustles! Some eo le sa that the wish the " ood ole' da s" would return, but- P P Y Y well-as for me, and this " idd 1" veneration, we're ust as satisfied with the g . 5 c l modern courtin'-even though Grandma did have her day. "WHAT IS A HIGH SCHOOL" An inquiring person passing Some high school students one day. Stopped them and asked the question, "VV hat is a high school, pray?" The students were heard to answer, "It's a building of wood and brick VVith classrooms, teachers, and pupils And many a volume thickf' "But llve heard so much about itf' The inquisitor did reply, mls there nothing more to tell me Than the things that meet the eye?" The companions o-f my story Then regarded him thoughtfully. And one was quick to answer But careless, as you shall see. "It's four long years of studying Some things you'd rather miss, YVhile unsympathetic teachers Are scolding for that and this. It,s learning nothing that's useful, The same old routine all the time. Or writing notes out of boredom QVVhich is often considered a crime."j .lu lx + --1 - IVFK But the other thought more deeply And answered in words like this: "A high school means years of study You wouldn't want to miss. It's a preparation, a proving ground, Striving earnestly to learn. It's working together, giving your best, And gaining friends in return. lt's the pep of the town, the fun of sports And building a level head, A spirit that's part of a person,s life. That lives on in the days ahead." Then wisely the passer-by replied, "From what you've said I take it That the answer depends upon each one, A high school is what you make it." VV ell might we heed that conversation, 'Tis true of schools and lives. The things one reaps depend upon The things toward which he strives. Yes, every one in high school Can build his school or break it. Letls work together to build the best, For a high school is what you make it! x9 4 5 ff' X ggxsxsfs , lj X D bo 'MQ Woo ' ooo we 0 sslooOoooo4 so , 500000000000000 S00000000000000 sooooooooooosoo Qzzzryzzzzza 4000000000006 ooooowoow K '00000000 1444403 ' l 533. xsssxxxw 1 gf, 5 '-.,,,,, mf" av 0 f CD 1 nt 'fa yr E - "W 5 Q59 , 1 'aan 2 , f " 1 . 4 if S s X X X LETIES ATHLETICS CHEERLEADERS YEA, COACH!

Yea Uhfig, Yea, yea, Coach Ehrigl COACH EHRIG Mr. llhrig, our coach, has been with us for two and a half years, joining us in the middle of the basketball season of 1946. Wfe have enjoyed much success during the years he has been with us, but this was the best. He has been our coach in football, track, basketball, and has taught boys' physical education. All of the boys that have played under him think he is all right. They like him and play very hard for him. Under his careful guidance the boys have really tried to win and bring home trophies for him and the school. I-le graduated from LaSalle-Peru high school in the year 1931, where he earned letters in football, track and basketball. After graduating from high school he went to Marquette College. He was the starting center in basketball, a position at which he starred for two years. Mr. Ehrig is kept very busy being coach and teaching classes of physical education, al- gebra, and geometry. Under him the won and lost column shows that we have won several more games than we have lost in his two and one-half years with us. This year we had a very successful season, having beaten our bitter but friendly rivals on occasions in football, basketball and track. lVe are happy to note that this yearbook is dedicated to him.

The Annawan High School Braves had a very successful season in '47. The Braves started off with a slow start by losing their first two games by a close margin, Which, with a little luck, could have been decided in our favor. After this the team began to settle down by swamping Tampico, then going on to beat Atkinson, which everybody considered the best game of the year. The boys were really out after this game, not only because it was Atkinson but because it was Coach Ehrig's birthday. CA pretty nice birthday present, "chu coach?j The Braves finished their season by playing a thrilling game with Prophetstown, which FOCTBALL was a nip and tuck ball game into the fourth quarter when the Braves went on a touch- down splurge, winning 26-18.

O ATHLETE'S CODE All of the- moral values, and desirable character traits that are inherent in athletic contests may well be grouped under the heading, "Athlete's Codefl The Athlete's Code endeavors to make all athletes try to live clean, be clean, and act natural. A good athlete will not smoke or do anything to hinder his athletic ability. During an athletic contest a player should be clean in his manner of play. On the floor he should also be clean in his maner of speech. LIBRARY STAFF The library at our high school is one of the favorite places of the students. Some of the things found in the library are books, both fiction and reference, current magazines, and the daily newspaper. It is each student's privilege to use the library for necessary school work as well as for his own enjoyment. Mrs. Browning is in charge of the library and each period stu- dent librarians are on hand to help other students find the desired books and keep the library in a neat order. STUDY HALL Study Hall is a room where every one goes to study when they are not in classes. There are eighty-five seats, and our libra- ry is located at the front of the room. We have a wide variety of books and reading matter. Our seating arrangement is very simple. The seniors sit in the row next to the windows, next is the juniors, then sophomores, and last but not least the freshmen. G. A. A. The Girls' Athletic Association organized in October.

M i ss Ohlmacher The girls served at the basketball games. With the money earned, Gretchen John- son and Lucille Jacobs are going to attend G.A.A. camp at East Bay in June. The G.A.A. held a Christmas party for its members December 1. THE SAXOPHONE QUARTET The saxophone quartet consisted of Bob Nowers, baritone sax: Patty Thornbrugh tenor sax: Dwaine Dynes, E flat alto sax and Phyllis Decker, first E flat alto sax. Phyllis Decker was the only remaining player from last year's quartet, the other three started this year. Because of Mr. Vitto's excellent instruc- tion, the quartet was very successful. This year it won first place in the district, and also first in the state music contest. ANGLE SHOT This photograph of the band was taken of the gymnasium. It from the balcony shows the band in action. The band went to Moline this year and ranked second di- vision. The annual spring concert was a huge success. Mr. Vitto is very sorry to lose eight band members this year. but he is filling their places with students who will carry on extremely well. We are sure that the seniors will miss playing in the band after they have graduated. MEMORIES The annual formal Valentine dance was held in the high school gymnasium Feb- ruary 14. This event was sponsored by the Student Council. The gymnasium was decorated beauti- fully by the Student Council members, with a red and white false ceiilng. Red and white streamers were around the sides of the gym. Then card tables were placed around the dance floor, decorated with Valentine table-cloths. Waitresses brought refreshments of sandwiches, ice cream and coke. Music for this gala affair was fur- nished by "Doc" Hunt's orchestra. The highlight crowning of the queen. of the evening was the DRAMA SENIOR PLAY Our senior class play, "Tattletale," was presented on November 14 under the direction of Mr. Osborn The entire play takes place in Fairview, at the Blaine home. Patty Blaine, the tattletale, has many great ambitions. I-ler greatest wish is that she will be a famous author. She has written a story entitled "Her Secret Heart," which she hopes Paul Cummings will publish in his paper. Ida May, her girl friend, takes the story to the paper for her so that no one will guess her identity. The next day Patty is very happy until she finds that she has sent her diary instead of the story. In her dairy she has not only written her own opinions on certain sub- jects and people, but her family's also, and, of course, the Whole town is very much insulted. Since Patty has signed the name of Ermintrude de Lacey no one knows the identity of the writer, everyone is wondering who she is and threatening her life. In the end the town realizes that everything said was true and decides to im- prove themselves and the school.

M 31'llyI1 a friend JUNIOR PLAY The entire action of the play takes place in the dining room of the Kanna .Iamma Sorority house just off the campus of a co-ed college in Beverly, California. Imagine a girls' sorority house on the campus of a well known university. It is Saturday night and the girls are ready to go out for the evening. Some are wishing that they could stay in when suddenly one of the girls is taken ill. A doctor is called in who says that it is chicken pox and quarantines the house for two weeks! VVhen one knows that several of the boys who have been working the house are quarantined also, one can readily visualize the many screamingly funny com- plications and mix-ups that follow. ln "Campus Quarantine," the author has taken an in- cident that really happened and has woven a play that is so packed with funny lines, humorous situations and witty dialogue, that an audience never experiences a dull moment. Yes, the juniors will be remembered for making this play live in the minds of the audience. Eugene and Louis in their pajamas, and Ed as a nurse will never be for- gotten.
