This book has caught glimpses here and there, so that in years to come the activities of this school year at Eau Claire High will not be dimmed and will not fade from memory. In later years, while turning these pages, if you should recall the many smiles, sorrows, and dreams of '62, we shall be content, knowing that we have done the thing we were called upon to do. BEAVER TALES STAFF 2QUEEN CAROLE ... "who could be wise, amazed, joyous and sad, loyal and neutral, in a moment. " from MacBeth To those who knew her this statement best describes Carole. Carole was a natural leader. She had ambition and drive, which are lacking in many of our youth today. She enjoyed living and her zest for life served as an inspiration for all who chanced to meet her, so to live their lives. We shall miss her pleasant disposition and cheery smile, but we must remember that her departure was the will of God. They who go Feel not the pain of parting; it is they Who stay behind that suffer. — Henry Wadsworth Longfellowo Dedication TO OUR PARENTS ... We dedicate our yearbook. To you, our parents, we offer this record of our hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. We hope you will keep this record on the marquee of your minds, for all of it, each tiny part, each perfect whole, is yours. You, our directors and producers, deserve top billings ..... When we didn't quite know our lines, or were missing some of our props, you provided them. You wrote the script, we merely acted our parts and we hope it pleases you. You kept us from covering our tiny imperfections with an excess of grease paint. You showed us how to revise the scene, to make it fit for production. We were in the center of the stage, then as now, and you were in the wings cheering us on, making us stars, and for this moment we want you to take the spotlight and accept our undying thanks and gratitude.Our High School Board oj Education SEATED: Phillip Rakauski, Trustee: Clare Ferguson, Trustee: John Burbach, President: John Schadt, Secretary.

Trustee.Superintendent’s Message If I may borrow from Cicero, "What one has, one ought to use: and whatever he does he should do with all his might." —Today, more than at any other time in history, each of us must surely use our abilities, energies, and our common sense if we are to survive the complexities of our modern society. The greatest responsibility and hope, of course, rests with you who are now graduating from high school; who are preparing to enter a vocation-to further your education - to marry. Do whatever you do — with all your might! 6Principal’s Message The last two years have seen many changes in Eau Claire High School. Three new districts have been annexed, and a new elementary building has been completed. Extensive changes have also been made in the curriculum- increase in the number of credits needed for graduation; new courses added; and the daily work load per student increased from four to six class periods. Study time is now supervised in the individual classrooms. All of these changes and many more not mentioned have been made to expand the educational possibilities for each student who leaves Eau Claire High School. The student is our most important product. 7School Secretaries Clyde Col man, Lee Howey, William Bartels C. Preston, G. Churchill, W. Bartels, H. Hanson, L. Howey, D. O'Dell, K. Skinner, M.

GOLF TALES The Eau Claire Golf Team had a fairly good year, considering it was their first year in this sport. The team had three wins and five defeats. They lost two to Edwardsburg. split with Bridgman, lost two to Watervliet, and won two from Berrien Springs. The team has some very good golfers and we look for a very good year, next year. TRACK TALES Last season the Beaver track team had many individual stars; however, they lacked the depth to have a great season. The team consisted of twelve members, with only two seniors participating. This should hold promise for an improved team next year. The team won a total of two meets, placed second in two meets, and third in two meets. They 440 - Leo Savich - 52 seconds placed third in the conference meet at Niles, with Gene Wright setting a con- ference record in the mile and Leo Savich in the 440. In the regional meet held at Portage, the team placed sixth out of a field of 36 teams. School re- cords set this year were: 4L X U Mile - Gene Wright - 4 minutes 51 and 8 10 seconds 880 - Dean Radke - 2 minutes 8 seconds Mile relay - Gene Wright. Dean Radke, Dennis Radke.

TALES OF THE BASEBALL GAMES The Beavers started the season by losing a tough game to Berrien Springs by a score 13-12. The Beavers then went to Watervliet and came home with an 18-3 victory under their hats. A league game with Lakeshore was then lost by the Beavers, but the next two games with Berrien Springs and Bridgman were victories for the Beavers. These victories were then marred by three defeats coming from Edwardsburg, Three Oaks and St. Johns. The Beavers then traveled to Galien and New Buffalo where they picked up two victories in conference play. The Beaver's last two games proved to be defeats for them at the hands of St. Johns and New Troy. Sponsored by - KEN’S GRILLNight of Homecoming COURT AND ATTENDANTS QUEEN VICKI MRS.

At the final warning seventy-nine members hastily bid farewell to their pleasures and vacation for another year and climbed aboard the beautiful blue ship, which was decorated with white Spider-Mums and gay ribbons. Thus they were initiated into their sea life in a royal manner. At last with the aid of Mr. VanderVeen, their faithful captain, and his eight trustworthy mates; Pat Zielke, John Coon, Kathy Ickes, Lewie Rosenbaum, Marilyn Holle, Karen Garlanger, Dennis Radke, and Vicki Starner, they were off for the strange land to seek their fortune. What lay in store for them only time would tell. The waters which seemed rough and troublesome at first soon appeared more peaceful. They were able to sail along smoothly. After they had been on this ship for about a year they learned that they were soon to be transferred to a larger ship, of which Mr. VanderVeen would again be the captain, and Beverly Allen, Dennis Radke, Vicki Starner, John Coon, Karen Garlanger, Mick Vladic, and Sharon Ertman, the helpers. What a beauty the ship was and how proud they all were as they entered the new ship, "The Sophomore." Only sixty-nine of their members remained with them that year. They ventured farther out to sea with the ship but found that they did not progress as they had the first year. New obstacles, which were hidden during the first year, now made their appearance and sent the boat rocking on the waves; but with the guidance of their ever watchful captain they were able to steer clear of these trying dangers. At last they were half way through their journey. Once again with Mr. VanderVeen as their captain and the mates: Dennis Radke, Kathy Ickes, Vicki Starner, Sharon Ertman, Judy Sells, Beverly Allen, and Lewie Rosenbaum, they started on toward their destination. That year they gave a play as a money- making project to land on the beautiful "Isle of Enchantment" where they gave their prom. What a grand occasion that was! During the last year of their sea adventures they had many happy times. They put on another very successful play that year. They sold magazines and had Senior Suppers which enabled them to make a trip to New York City in March. All of their many activities gave them a great feeling of accomplishment. One morning, when they were all seated on the deck, with their new captain, Mr. Brame, they were informed that they were soon to reach their journey's end. Some of them were happy to think of their trip being so near over but others were not so happy. They were thinking of the good times they had spent together during these last four years. Never in their lives would they all be together again. An annual was published which described their journey and the activities of the years. This was to serve as a happy reminder of their good times together. Before the crew parted they all assembled with their captain, Mr. Brame, at a little town called Eau Claire, Michigan, and there they were all presented with a diploma for their work and success in their adventure. By their united efforts they had conquered together the sea of "High School Life" and earned their reward.
