We are about to leave our school To fill a different place.
The speaker spoke on “Higher Aims;” The teachers glowed with pride;
A parent with an anxious hope Did brush a tear aside.
The glee club sang a melody;
Pianos sent forth sweet songs;
Our faces shone with radiant youth; The youth for which age longs.
The happy carefree students are All launching out to sea,

F. F. A.
The membership of the Future Farmers of America at Berrien Springs High School consists of boys enrolled in agriculture classes. Mr. A. H. Lange is the agriculture teacher and directs the boys in their F.F.A. activities.
The purpose of the club is to encourage leadership, scholarship and cooperation among our Future Farmers of America.
During the past year 20 freshman were initiated as •“greenhands” and 18 Chapter farmers. Three F.F.A. members applied for the State Farmer Degree. These statewide awards are given in recognition of outstanding farming programs. Members that applied are Warren Walker, Gerald Kugel, and Dale Knuth. Only the top two percent of all F.F.A. boys in Michigan may be selected for the State Farmer Degree each year.
As a group project, the chapter provided colonies of bees to ten F.F.A. boys and a pure-bred gilt to each of two members.
As an award for their agricultural accomplishments, twenty-four members were given award trips to visit farming areas in several neighboring states and Canada. One Saturday during the football season, the F.F.A. members, along with the third and fourth year Homemaking classes, toured the Campus at Michigan State College and attended the Maryland vs. Michigan State College football game.
The club officers for the past year have been Dale Warsco, president; Franklin Gaul, vice-president; Henry Heimbuch, secretary; Gerald Kugel, treasurer; Warren Walker, reporter; and Arthur Rudlaff, sentinel.Photo. Club

The Photography Club, under the sponsorship of Mr. John Brawders, was organized on October 1, 1950.
Officers elected to serve the year were Loraine Hildebrand, President; Glen Briggs, Secretary-Treasurer.
The purpose of the club was to stimulate the students’ interest in photography.
The club met twice a month to develop films and make prints.
During the first semester the club held a bowling party for its members.
We are planning now to buy an enlarger to help expand the clubs capacity to completely service its members.A Uita Glub

The Arista Club resumed its usual duties this year with Mrs. Lillian Ferguson as its advisor. We elected Sheila Gerard as President, Ellen Brohman, Vice President, Bonnie Oliver, Secretary, Diana Krieger, Treasurer, Phyllis George, Reporter, Charles Lindt and Charles Harding, as Circus Maximus.
We conducted a Christmas Party and went caroling. Singing songs in Latin and English.
March 9th a group went to Lansing, Michigan to participate in the Junior Classical League Convention. We presented a skit “Pyramus and Thisbe Ala Mode” and sang “I Love You a Btishel and a Peck in Latin. Later we presented it in front of the High School as an assembly.
The Arista Club held their Annual Roman Banquet April 23rd. The first year Latin students were slaves and served the members and guests. During the three course dinner the members and guests reclined on the floor in true Roman fashion. Everyone wore togas and wreaths. The low tables were beautifully decorated in purple and yellow.
After the dinner the first year members were formally initiated with Darlene Paige as Pontifex Maximus.
The Latin Club has improved immensely and we are fully justified in saying it is a successful club.1 fditesiA, Club

The MONITOR’S CLUB has been re-established this year to maintain order in the halls during school hours.
The USHER CLUB this year has been on duty at every basketball game, seating the spectators and encouraging them not to cross the playing floor.
The members were divided into two teams, whereby each team ushered at every other game. A new chairman was chosen at each game.
The Club was under the supervision of Mr. August Lange, who has done a marvelous job in helping at the games.
The LIBRARY CLUB, which was organized last year, has vastly improved under the direction of Mr. Douglas Watson.
New books have arrived and we now have a fairly complete library.
A trained student librarian is on duty all hours of the day, including noon hours and four o’clock, as a school service in aiding students to locate library materials and to withdraw books.
A work room has been established in room twenty-seven to process books and hold meetings.
We hope for the club to be of more service to the school next year.SesUosi

The Fighting Shamrock's football team of 1950 was the suprise team of the "Little Eight Conference.” They compiled a good record and were feared by every team in the conference.
Two guards, two tackles and the best half-back in the conference were lost by graduation, so the 1950 football team had to rely on sophomores and juniors for their line. The final outcome was Berrien Springs having the lightest team in the Shamrock history and also the lightest in the conference.
Football Co-captains and Queen
Regardless of size the Shamrocks finished third in the “Little Eight Conference” and had a season of four wins, three losses and one tie.
We will lose four good players for the 1951 season. Don Steinhilber and Dean Quick were two of the finest ends in the conference. Phil Lindt was a very good tackle and Russ Smith was our backfield "Work Horse". The Shamrocks have some good boys returning, including Ted Oliver, "All Conference Center", and Charles Clark, "All Conference Guard", and many others. Coach Lloyd Nothstine says, "The Shamrocks have finally got their teeth into the Little Eight Conference and next year will be the year to bring home the bacon".

The Shamrocks have had one of the best seasons in Berrien Springs basketball history. Coach Barney Chance in his first year as head basketball coach had a wonderful season.
The Berrien Springs Shamrocks ended their season with a loss to St. Augustine at Kalamazoo, Michigan, March 10, 1951.
The Shamrocks, with Dick Tropp, 6’ 6”, and Russ Smith, 6’ 2” leading them, had a season record of sixteen wins and five losses. The Shamrocks scored 1,202 points to their opponents 965 for an offensive average of 54.6 points and a defensive average of 43.8 points.
The regular players scoring for the year were: Dick Tropp, 283, Russ Smith, 263, Herm Saitz, 192, Dean Quick, 182, and Charles Lindt, 131. There will be three of the five regulars back next year. They are Dick Tropp, Herm Saitz, and Charles Lindt. Other members of the varsity team who will be back include two juniors, Don Crawford and Jerry Roslowski, along with three sophomores, Jack Thierbach, Roy Prillwitz, and Dale Whetstone.
The boys lost by graduation are Russ Smith, Don Steinhilber, and Dean Quick. Don Clem will be unable to play due to age limit.

Girls’ basketball was started early in October with a large turnout. Mrs. Betty Wagner, our new coach, had a tough time selecting a team of fourteen, but the choice that she made proved highly satisfactory.
Our six game schedule included New Buffalo, Edwardsburg and Niles, there being two games with each of the three teams.
Bonnie Oliver and Diana Krieger were charged with the management of the team.
A new M.H.S.A.A. ruling discarded the traditional reserve team.fcaAebaU
In 1950 the Berrien Springs Shamrock baseball team finished second in the Class “C” Conference, the same position they finished in conference play in 1949.
Coach Lloyd Nothstine says, “The 1951 Shamrocks team members are laying plans for a championship this year.”
The Shamrocks must develop a pitcher to take Duane Wrigglesworth’s place and a short stop for Dale Sunday’s. Both were lost by graduation.
Although the Shamrocks have not played any regular 1951 season games, as the Canoe goes to press, the outlook for a very good team is bright. The 1951 schedule will include Bridgman, New Troy, New Buffalo, and Edwardsburg in conference play and some Class B schools. fiaak

Track at Berrien Springs has vastly improved in the last couple of years and this year the school will be represented by one of the best track teams in years. With a large turnout of Sophomores there will be about 20 members out for the squad.
The team according to Coach Chance will take in many important meets including Albion, River Rouge, the Regional meet at Kalamazoo and the State meet at Lansing. We will also participate in all county meets and expect to have a much improved meet at Berrien Springs this year.
According to early reports there are three Seniors out for the squad; Russ Smith who will run the hurdles is one of the best hurdle men in the state, Dale Warsco who is very good on short runs and Gerald Kugel in the mile. Garey Pennington, Herm Saitz and Chuck Lindt represent the Jrs. with Pennington in the relays and field events, with Saitz in the relays and short distance and Lindt in the hurdles. This should provide a very able trio. The Sophomores provided a very good field of nine with Jack Theirbach, Dale Whetstone, Charlie Harding, Chuck Clark, Chet Warsco, John Robbins and Roy Prillwitz.
Theirbach, Warsco, Robbins and Harding will make a good quartet in the short distance hurdles and relays, Roy Prillwitz will help us much in the mile where he proved a very able man last year. Whetstone will improve his ability greatly in the hurdles and become an outstanding man with Chuck Clark adding much by helping in the half-mile.
With these bright prospects Coach “Barney” Chance ably assisted by former Albion track-ster, Coach Don Ashdown are very optimistic about the Berrien 1950-51 track team.NAME
