Our class started its Freshman year with forty-three members, all just
a little bit scared but unwilling to admit it. We elected Roger Carlson, Presi-
dent, Bert Lauer, Vice President, June Heinen, Secretary, and William Stuller,
Treasurer. Mr. Hammer was our advisor the first half of the year, and Mr. Neif-
ert the last half.
Just to show that we held no grudges, we gave the Sophomore Class a
skating party in return for a wonderful initiation. After the parties were over,
we settled down to a year of good hard work. During the year we lost several of
our classmates. Our candidate for Basketball Queen, Suzanne Endsley, won the
After a pleasant vacation we returned to find that we were only a
class of thirty-nine students. Our advisor was Mrs. Rocks. Our officers were
Louise Blanchard, President, Pat Hurlbut, Vice President, Suzanne Endsley,
Secretaryg and Bill Thompson, Treasurer. We initiated the Freshman Class and
they gave us a return party.
Another summer slipped by and once again we found ourselves facing the
Fennville High School. Our class of forty-two members was under the able leader-
ship of Howard Batey, President, Charles Dickinson, Vice President, Louise Blan-
chard, Secretaryg and William Thompson, Treasurer, Our advisor was lr, Sexton.
In order to make money we sold Christmas cards. We also won the fifteen dollar
prize offered to the class collecting the most money for the Memorial Athletic
Field. Our Junior Play NGrandad Steps Out' was a huge success with William
Stuller stealing the show as Grandad. It was directed by Mrs. Rooks. Then came
the Uunior-Senior Prom which was the highlight of a memorable year.
After an altogether too short vacation we again found ourselves back
at old Fennville High. Only this time we were Seniors! We soon learned that Mr.
Sexton was to be our advisor. We now had only thirty-six members. Our officers
are Don Morse, President, Charles Dickinson, Vice President, Lois Hoyt, Secre-
tary, and Grace Stasik, Treasurer. In order to raise money, we sold magazines
for several weeks. We also are selling candy and cokes during the noon hour.

The bend is in the process of being reorganized under the direction of
I . Lee Sneden. There are twenty students in the bend. Most of these members
have played instruments only one year, but are studying privately in weekly les-
sons with the three teachers acquired for this purpose. In addition to the pri -
vate instrumental lessens there are meetings twice weekly with the director. We
hope our band will develop into a group of which we may all be proud.

On December lk, the Blackhawks traveled over icy roads through a tree-
zing rain to meet the Hopkins' five. A win was needed to maintain a .500 in the
won - lost columns. The encounter that ensued convinced the Fennville supporters
that the trip was well worthwhile. The game was see-saw and dog-eat-dog. The
final horn sounded with the score tied. The overtime ended with the score 55-Sk
in Hopkins favor, but Art Bowie had been fouled in the final seconds and was due
one free throw. This he handily bucketed and the 'sudden deathn overtime fol-
lowed. Charley Whitemyer was fouled while shooting and promptly made the most
of the occasion by sinking the two free throws to win the game, 57-55.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
Those elected by popular vote to serve as members of the Student Coun-
cil were as follows: Jim Thompson, President, Don Barnes, VicePres1dentg
Larry Symons, Treasurerg and Norma Crane, Secretary. The representatives of
the classes ares Larry Morse and Earl Warner of the Junior High, John Cox-
ford and Everett Higgins of the Freshman Class, Lots Hess and Lila Langley of
the Sophomore Class, Bill lacicak and Elwin Northrup of the Junior Class, and
Don Horse and Bill Stuller of the Senior Class.
Among the Student 'Counc1l's many accomplishments are: the appointment
of a committee to draft a new constitution for the government of the student
body, the passage of a proposal to permit the use of school busses to trans-
port spectators as well as players to out of town basketball games, and the
purchase and later resale to the students five hundred pencils on which were
printed the l9'+8-i+9 basketball schedule. They brightened the sehoollbuilding
by decorating the Christmas tree in the landing at the top of the stairs du-
ring the appropriate season. The Student Council is also working on possi-
bilities of raising money for the purchase of new uniforms for the Cheerleaders.
lr. Woodby and Mr. Sexton serve as advisors for the council.
Early in the school year the Student Council caused the organization
of the Social Committee. Two members of each class in the Senior High and
one Freshman compose this active organization. ldss Richards is the faculty
sponsor. A football dance, dances following basketball games, and the big
event of the Winter social season - the Christmas Semi-Formal have been com-
mendable achievements of the Social Committee.

Tryouts for cheerleaders were held early in the fall with the entire
student body acting as judges. Competition was rather keen and talent seemed
the long suit of the participants. Tiny Langley, the only holdover from
last year was joined by no less than six lovely and lively companions-in-arms
An excellent Job has been done by these girls in extracting every
ounce of cheers and yells from the team followers at the football and basket
ba l games.
