I 3'X'T'l l" I Cn of F I- rs r V LOIV QV Our friend Crispin not only chews and digests words from our books but also enters into our school affairs. He attempts to de- velop an appreciation of many things by observing if he can not ac- tively participate. He makes friends, works hard, and tries to un- derstand his neighbors. His is a well-rounded school personality. DEDICATION This Rollcall is dedicated to those parents who, through their patience, understanding, and hard work, have made it possible for the Class of 1950 to be graduated from Farmington High School.

Page Twenty- CRISPIWS 'TASTE OF i-IISTORY My name is Crispin Bartholomew Bookworm, and I am going to tell you a story concerning a very strange experience I had one day. As you know, my family gaf' Ccutest you ever sawl and I reside on Thomas Street. ' 1 Our home is filled with every kind of book you can " imagine fmathematics, art, English, science, music, etc.J. But there is one which is quite different from I Q N I the others, a history book. When I first crawled over I X it, I did not give it a second glance. Then I spied the . L-9 -, ' f' ' it f numbers 1-9-5-0. I stopped to study the whole title: - "The Class History of 1950". I thought to myself, . "Now this class must have been very outstanding, for was it not graduated at the mid-century date?" Consumed with growing curiosity, I crept into the book, skipping past the auth- or, the publisher, the table of contents, and the-introduction. I made myself com- fortable on the page entitled "Freshmen". What I saw there was far too much fun to chew. I felt it should be saved for posterity--for you and your friends to read and reread with the passing years. "The poor old school is a-creakin' and a-groanin', For up her steps come her freshies a-moanin'-- President Jack Boyce is running in the lead, Vice-President Suzie Labadie's getting up speed, Secretary Donna Bryan is coming in fast, Treasurer Ann Plumton is a bit slow, but not last. That tired old building gives one relieved sigh: Here's the Class of 1950, it's certain to ride high! Two dances are held by the freshies this year, One closed, the other a Senior Farewell full of cheer." In my excitement, I scurried over to the next verse and began to peruse: "The poor old school is chipped and cracked, It gives one more shudder, the sophomores are back! President Lee Tyler appears first, in tradition, Vice-President Ruth Hamlin next, with ambition, Then follows Bob Layland--two jobs has he: Keeping the minutes and the treasury. The Valentine Valse is the dance of the year-- When hearts are light, when Cupid is near." Turning my head, I smelled a most juicy, tantalizing page. The odor of de- licious paper-a-la-king floated to my nostrils. But, just as I began to sample this special dish, my glance fell upon these opening lines: "The poor old school does not look around, For here are the juniors with a great big bound. Jack Boyce is the president, we see, as before, With Suzie Labadie as the vice-president once more. Ann Plumton is the secretary, full of zest, Barbara Henke is the treasurer, doing her best. Their dance, the "Snowflake Frolic", is very well planned, It transposes us all to a winter wonderland. The I-Hop theme is of a bygone day, "Magnolia Manor", the South of yesterday-- Gracious ladies, gentlemen, and a plantation, too, Whose beauty and charm become a part of you. With the help of their parents, they give a Sample Fair, Everything is free. joy fills the air! Their reception for the seniors is called a "Soiree", The setting is in a small French cafe. . Page Twenty t CRISPIWS 'IASTE OF i-IISTORY "April Showers" is their last fling this junior yearg Then B. Henke at Girls' State does appear, Treweek, Tyler, Barrons, and Klees at Wolverine State Learn much about government and the world's fate. George Barrons another distinction does receive-- The Brykalski-Coolman Award--the first, I believe. Jones, Plumton, Labadie, and Ruch enroll With Stuntz and Vivier in Quill and Scroll." Meditating, I slowly and hungrily devoured this verse, but with my eyes only: "The poor old school has made many a friend, But, when the seniors approach, it knows it's the end. Here comes President Treweek with a big, happy smile, Welcomed by Vice-President Tupper, right in style. Then comes Secretary Garchow, who is willing to please, Closely followed by Treasurer Ralph Klees. They sponsor a dance called the "Autumn Twirl", With colorful leaves all in a swirl. A committee picks for the Senior Play A gay comedy, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay". It develops in Europe about nineteen twenty, Of laughs and predicaments it has plenty. The Senior Prom is held April twenty-nine, Swing-out, june 8, shows the graduates in solemn line. At Baccalaureate, June 11, they think they are wise, But at Commencement many have tears in their eyes." As I curled up to dream about the future of these fine folks, I discovered, tucked between the pages, this note. It was addressed to Miss Ruth L. Bailey, for four years chairman of their sponsors. Farmington, Michigan June 15, 1950 Friends, The one hundred three of us, on our Graduation Day, wish to thank you for the guidance you have given.

"TWELVE - PASS" The season opened with the Falcons meeting Plymouth on our home field, where the Falcons did as expected. With Yanke as our main offensive threat, we defeated Plymouth 14 to 0. fEberso1e must be mentioned here for his fine linebacking for our opponents.D Rochester was our second pigskin battle. We all wanted this game to add to our victory list, but the Rochester team had other ideas. Lead by their All-State fullback, E. Montross, they won 19 to 6. jim Bates, though injured, played well for Farmington. The Milford Trojans visited Farmington the next week. Farmington won. Yanke was our main threat again, running and kicking us to a 35 to 0 victory. The line played well also, with Godfrey the out-standing player. Clarenceville was fourth on the slate for F. H. S. This, we thought, was going to be a tough one. Through some fine defensive work by Tata, Boyce, and the linemen, we won 26 to 0. The best contest of the season came when we took Walled Lake, 9 to O. After a O-0 half, our Falcons came back fighting mad. A pass from Dirmeyer to AschenBrenner clicked for 70 yards and also for the winning touchdown. Our line was charging hard, and our defense would not yield. Hayes and Tyler stood out on defense, as did Dirmeyer and AschenBrenner on offense. Keego Harbor Won the title the next week, when they outscored us by 40 points. With the loss of Ditchfield, Co-Captain Boyce, Sechler, and Bates, our team could not hold those fighting Presi- dents. The following Friday Farmington worked back into the winning column by downing Holly 18 to 6. Markham and Plum, aided by some good blocking, stood out on offense. Hayes did his usual good job on defense. Godfrey and Majors, who put on a fine exhibition of defensive football, did not let Holly gain much up the middle. The last game was not a happy one. Berkley took us 28 to 0. Everyone played his heart out but just could not manage to do much against that Berkley eleven. This completed the schedule, the record being five victories and three defeats. The boys chose Smoky AschenBrenner and George Hayes as co-captains for the 1950-51 season. As a fitting climax to gridiron activities, came the news that AschenBrenner, Tyler, and Yanke were elected to the All-League team. Editor's Note: This article was written by Co-Captain George Barrons, who did an excellent piece of work all year in his position of quarterback. His good sportsmanship prevented his men- tioning his own contribution.

' Page Fifty five 2 E "3 i-IOOT" When the crisp autumn winds began to fade, Farmington took on another sport, basketball. With an impressive record of the previous year to at least equal, the lads from Farmington got down to some good hard work. The first game of the 1949-50 season was with Plymouth on the Falcons' floor. To take on the Rocks, Coach Hutton named Captain Dick Tupper, Dave Dirmeyer, Herb Deubel, George Barrons, and Smoky AschenBrenner. With Captain Tupper contributing 12 points, the Falcons turned back Plymouth 35-28. Next they traveled to Wayne on a Tuesday night and trimmed the Zebras 57-32, with Dave Dirmeyer piling up 23 points. With two games to their credit, the boys in blue and white added another by trouncing Milford 63-33, Dirmeyer again high man with 17 markers. In the next week's action, the Falcons defeated Rochester 47-27, Dirmeyer drop- ping in 14 points. They handed Keego Harbor a 33-19 defeat on Friday night,'George Barrons slipping in 9 points. Farmington then traveled to Trenton and, after a hard fought game, came home victorious 45-32, Iim Bates netting 14 points for high honors. Craving more action, the Falcons participated in a Christmas tournament at Berkley. They came from behind in the first encounter with Walled Lake to humble the Vikings 56-50, with AschenBrem1er tipping in 13 points. In the final contest, Berkley fell before the strong Farmington team, 71-41, Tupper pouring in 26 markers. Back in league play, the boys went to Holly to whip the cagers in red and grey 64-17, Dirmeyer taking all honors with 25 points. The Falcons defeated Berkley for the second time, 50-36, with AschenBrenner boasting 14 points for high honors. The boys were then tripped by an aggressive Walled Lake team 44-42, suffer - ing the first, loss of the season. Tupper contributed 15 points. Seeking to Win again, the Falcons defeated Milford 66-37, AschenBrenner lead- ing the way with 16 tallies. They snapped Fenton's nine-game winning streak 64-26, with Dirmeyer knocking in 21 points. The Falcons then lost another close one to Keego Harbor 49-46, 'hipper mark- ing up 16 points. Once more, determined to get back into the winning column, the Falcons de- cisively beat Holly 79-29, Tupper being high man with 16 markers. The second encounter with Berkley proved to be a bit different. Showing a great improvement, the Bears came close to topping the Falcons' scoring but fell short 53-50, Dirmeyer sinking 18 points. The final game of the season was with Walled Lake. With the backing of the many fans who turned out, the Falcons mastered the Vikings 47-43, Dirmeyer tak- ing honors with 17 points. Special mention goes to Dick 'IH1pper, Dave Dirmeyer, George Barrons, and Foster AschenBrenner. These boys were named to the Inter-Lakes All-League teams. Page Fifty-se "GET SET" Although Cross-Country was in its second season only, more boys participated, and spectators showed more interest this year. A new track coach, Mr. Donald Hossler, took over and turned out a team that made a good showing. Six meets were scheduled for the harriers, in addition to an invitational one at Albion. In this unusual sport the team that comes out with the lowest score is the win- ner. The Falcons took the first meet from Berkley by a score of 26 to 29. lim Yuill was first with a time of 11:21. The second meet was dropped to Walled Lake, when we piled up 32 points to Walled Lake's 27. Iim Yuill came in second, fol- lowed by David Turner and Albert Szostek. The Falcons, having recovered from their defeat at Walled Lake, downed Milford, last year's league champions, 24 to 37. In the next contest held here, the tracksters turned back the Holly team 15 to 71. At this time Jim Yuill set a new record for F. H. S.'s track when he crossed the finish line at 10:46. Of the eleven Class B schools running in the Albion meet, Farmington came in ninth. Jim Yuill was first among the blue and white thinclads, followed by Al Szostek, Ralph Klees fcaptainj, jim Keck, jack Ratliff, Arthur Olson, and David Turner. Although Farmington placed no men in the first two positions, they became 1949- 50 champions of the Inter-Lakes League. Jim Yuill, David Turner, jim Keck, Dick Yokom, and Ralph Klees ran third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and ninth respectively. The Falcons came in low with 27 points--ahead of Walled Lake with 44 and the defend- ing champions, Milford, with 76 points. Concluding a successful season, our trackmen represented Farmington in the State X-Country Meet at Ypsilanti, Michigan, where they placed fifth among Class B schools. They competed with twenty-six teams, consisting of some one hundred and fifty individuals. Jim Keck was elected captain of next year's squad. Page Fifty-eight CROSS Cf UNT!
