OUR SCHOOL OF STUDENT P OTS is
preparing to move along to the final cli ax of a
lengthy and arduous course, which eac mem-
ber of the training unit hopes will lead t his fu-
ture career. The students have,"' of cour e, been
taught all the fundamentals of learning 'n both
elementary and advanced instruction. 'th this
knowledge, it can be correctly assumed hat our
training unit provides the necessary link etween
termination of the student's instructi n and
actual participation by him, to become a raduate
pilot from the Ferndale Training Base. he stu-
dent has certain fatigues to perform. These often
seem very undesirable at the time, but are help-
ful and essential for the future and are no entire-
ly lacking in benefit to the student hims lf. The
ultimate result of these operations is a definite

in the coming years. Yet, we have made only a beginning-and
before our very eyes a world conflict is making our future respon-
Each class has been given a clear and concise explanation
of duties and responsibilities and particular stress has been laid
upon the greater opportunity for the individual to use his initia-
tive in his future field of work.
Each student is interested in the set of wings for which he
has been striving this year. Wish him success for he has Worked
hard to attain the position in which he can perform duties of
great value for his country.
Each and every one of the student pilots is aware of the
great task which lies before him-the task of keeping America
free for the future generations. Our goal can be attained only
by cooperation and unity on the part of every loyal American.
The command of Wllake Offn has been given. Let us heed our
commanders and prepare to fly into the future.

OUR SCHOOLS have always been molds in which we cast the kind of life We Wanted.
Today, what we all want is victory, and beyond victory a world in which free men may
fulfill their aspirations. Schools, today, must help us mold men and women who can fight
through to victory. Every schoolhouse must become a service center for the home front. And
we pray that our young people will learn in the schools and in the colleges the wisdom and for-
bearance and patience needed by men and women of good will who seek to bring to this earth
a lasting peace.

THE FERNDALE BASE is training
about five hundred students each
year, and approximately seventy sen-
ior pilots will receive their wings this
May. P. S. They'11 probably need them.
The teaching staff includes seven-
teen instructors, a nurse, an office
secretary and a maintenance superin-
tendent. Of this staff, eight are teach-
ing academic subjects and the other
nine are instructing in special subjects.

. . . THE MEN WHO'VE
PIONEERED THE WAY
FOR FUTURE LIVING
The men we'd like to introduce are not the
uniformed officers of a regiment but just plain
civilian leaders of a great youth army.
They're at home inside their quarters in the
school plant, where they plan for an all-out vic-
tory in educa'ion . . . pointing the Way to a stronger
and greater America.
For these men are doers, not idlers and talkers,
and Pearl Harbor gave them, too, a whale of a
job. The job of planning and adjusting a new 1943
education to fit these inexperienced youth for the
future, to build strong, healthy Americans with
keen, sound minds, to relieve World hatred and
prejudice, to help make a peaceful and sane world
in which the youth, who are yet to leave the por-
tals of our schools, may find happiness and con-
tent: and countless other tasks are yet to be solved.
But, these men are pioneering the way, and
through their measures the giant jobs will be Whit-
tled down to digestible sizes.

ONE HUNDRED THIRTY SPIRITED NEW RECRUITS arrived at
the induction center last tall and were assigned to the Fresh-
man Bomber Squad .... Getting into the swing of things at
first was a little difficult, but with the help of the officers,
advisors and friendly upper classmen, the new pilots soon
became one of the many and unconcernedly went through
their year's training .... It didn't take long for Commanders
Hill, Townsend, Kuhs, Fisher, Myers, Hetrick, and English to
put this new crop through their paces .... They have now
won their stripes and have been assigned to the Sophomore
Squadron for further training toward victory.
WERE YOU EVER SAUNTERING PEACEFULLY down the
hall when all at once there came a gust of wind, a terrific
crash, and found yourself almost in pieces? Yes, that was '

subject. These robust understudies are letting everyone know that when they enter high
school its going to be "full speed ahead!"

FERNDALE STUDENTS know that good order is
one of their best qualities. Here is an example.
WARTIME DOIN GS---
You don't realize how important a job the
youth are doing until you see them at work.
American boys and girls are no longer
by-standers of War. They're in it up to their
ears. For day by day these young soldiers are
preparing themselves to do their part in the
struggle, either to take their place in the ranks
or to help make the home front safe from at-
tack. These youth are not all in uniform, but
all are earning their stripes. It may be in com-
mon place ways like collecting scrap, selling
defense stamps, studying first aid, or helping
with the defense program in the community.
All these things the American youth do gladly.
For they know to the aching depths of their
hearts what kind of War this is. It isn't for
boundaries, for profit or loot. It's their War.
Their parents and loved ones are sacrificing
their lives for everything they love and be-
lieve in, for the American Way of Life. And
to that end the American youth are dedicated
today to insure a peaceful tomorrow.
THESE BOYS ARE PREPARED TO CARRY MESSAGES in case of any emergency:
for air-raid wardens, control centers, hospitals, first-aid stations, fire stations, and police

ed squadron leaders led
the entire formation of stu-

9 AT EASE '
These Reflector staff mem-
bers relax to enjoy a laugh
at the personalities of the
former year books. Informal
moments like these made
the hard Work that followed
The acting ability of our Seniors
was brought out this year in the
smash hit comedy, "The Whole ToWn's
Talking." Under the capable and pa-
tient direction of Mr. Kuhs, We strug-
gled through long, hard hours of drill
on how to sit, walk, speak and act.
But ot course We had our lun . . . eat-
ing donuts, pretzels, peanuts, and
candy furnished by the cast and en-
joying a good hearty laugh at the ex-
pense of another character of the play.
Don Sell, as Chester Binney, a middle
aged bachelor who has had no experi-
ence with Women, gave us many a
side ache with his tactics of trying to
win the hand of his employer's young
and pretty daughter, Ethel Simmons,
capably portrayed by lane Foltz.
Ethel Wants to marry a man of the

SELECTED PREVIEWS. Doesn't it look exciting? Be-
lieve me, it certainly was.
THE SENIOR PLAY CAST LISTENS ATTENTIVELY while Mr. Kuhs explains Why "The Whole Town's
Talking!" This was one of our few and lar between "serious" moments.
SCORE DIRECT HIT
World like Roger Shields, a smart
young Frenchman, smoothly played
by Fred Mostoller. So, Mr. Simmons,
Bob Grenning, schemes a false love
affair between Chester and Letty
Lythe, a famous movie actress, smartly
interpreted by Ruth Evans. But to make
her fiancee, Donald Swift, played by
Paul Auman, jealous, Letty turns the
tables on Chet and the affair be-
comes very complicated. The climax
of the play comes when Chet, Donald,
and Roger have a "fight in the dark,"
in which Chet ends up on the chan-
delier and Roger and Donald knock
each other out, making Chet a hero
to Ethel. The cast Was supported by
Lois Iean Hassenplug as Mrs. Sim-
mons, Iosephine Poliacek as Sadie
Bloom, a dance hall teacher and
Annie, the maid, by Eileen Larson.
Other supporting roles Were played by
Betty Naugle, Ruth Murray, LaVerne
Lees, Pauline Maldet, Ioan Gilbert and
Robert Griffith. All in all, it was a
great success, even though Rhea, our
student director, did have to coach us
when we failed to remember our lines
and our movements.

Although the yellow-clad boroughmen rang up a total

lost several scoring chances as the plucky Geistown lads
repeatedly put up a stubborn defense.

Richland's three yard line. Geistown kicked but the punt

Ferndale was stopped twice after driving
as far as the Barnesboro l5 in the first half.
The second march was turned into a Dragon
touchdown when their left-end snatched a
Ferndale lateral in mid-air on the 21 and
romped over the Iacket goal line.
Starting from the Dragon's 43 early in
the third quarter Ferndale needed only a few
plays to advance to the three-yard stripe,
from where Hindman swept right end for the
tying tally. The placement kick was blocked.
The Iackets were kept at a distance
throughout most of the contest by the flashy
punting of the Dragon's fullback. Time and
again his kicks pulled the Barnesboro eleven
out of danger.
Ferndale outplayed their opponents by a
considerable margin. The Stingers held a 9-4
edge in first downs and gained 160 yards to

Dragons were unable to advance into scoring
position at any time.

THOSE WHO HAVE WON DECORATIONS
One of the impressive facts about the
heroes produced in the American fighting
forces is that they are almost invariable
athletes. In our American sports-football,
basketball, baseball, track, etc., they pre-
pared their muscles, their nerves, their
minds, to function as perfect machines in
the hazardous game of deadly War. Yes,
and in these same competitive sports they
learned another thing that soldiers in a
great and noble cause must have-fight-
ing spirit and the will to win.
The Varsity F Club are all "he-men,"
alert to America's needs of today . . . and
tomorrow. Upon these veterans Will de-
pend the outcome, just as Was true in the
past-when they met the opponent, face
to face, and fought to keep their record
We honor our athletic heroes and give
to them the decorations Which they so
nobly have earned the right to wear.
Only those athletes Who have met the
requirements for a letter in one or more
varsity teams are eligible for membership
in the Ferndale Varsity "F" Club. The pur-
pose of this organization is to foster the
spirit of fair play, cooperation, and clean
living among athletic competitors in Fern-
dale High School.
Each club member pledges to be loyal
at all times to his team and the school which
it represents, to play the game honestly, to
obey training rules, to play the game hard,
trying to win by strength and skill, to treat
his opponents with courtesy, to be a good
loser and a generous Winner, and to set a
good example for the Ferndale athletes who
are trying their best to gain the opportun-
ity to be a member of the varsity squad

A new wrinkle was injected into pilot training by
Instructor Wolfe. He figured that a lot could be accom-
plished for the good of America and for our future pilots
by organizing a school airplane club. As a result, Fern-

cadets learned the designs and makes of airplanes so they
could recognize them in split-second time . . . studied the
intricate mechanisms . , . built model planes for Uncle Sam
. . . acquired some fundamentals in the art of flying . . .

0 WELL DONE, MY LADS 0
Have you ever heard ot the Assembly Band? Well, you
should have, since it played quite frequently for school
USO activities . . . entertained in assemblies, assisted for
the Senior Play, worked-out for basketball games and
came to the rescue for other special programs. For several
mornings every week it could be heard practicing during
preparation period . . . the squeak of the violins, the beat
of the drums, the toot of the brasses-all, were under
the untiring supervision of Mr. Iohnson. Although the
director has obtained several gray hairs from it, its music
has been enjoyed by every one.
O BUBBLING WITH VIVACITY O
One of the largest training units within the school
is the Dramatic Club. With spacious, well-equipped head-
quarters in the auditorium, each student had the oppor-
tunity to develop hidden talent and to get over the. "jitters"
and stage fright. After many hours of basic instruction in
dramatic fundamentals, each trainee was on his own . . .
some took part in plays, a few gave lectures, and others
performed individually . . . each contribution afforded a
USO program for the entire training school units ....
Our year's training provided both recreation and pleasure
after long classroom sessions as well as practical ex-
O A PAD FULL OF SYMBOLS I
Yes, we will wear the white collars of tomorrow! Un-
der faithful guidance and advice we have been training
to be better prepared to fill our future positions. But wait!
. . . We did something entirely new this year-took dicta-
tion and typed letters and orders for hard pressed in-
structors. Learned scores of other things too-wrapped
packages, sealed envelopes, typed even right margins,
cut stencils, and performed in model interviews . . . and
never found time to glance at our watches. With all this
knowledge we say-"Watch out business, here comes
your future secretaries!"

I WE SERVE WITH A SONG 0
Have you ever walked down the hall Tuesday morn-
ing and heard the spirited flow of song from the music
room? Yes, that was the blended voices of the Boys'
Chorus . . . not only singing songs for programs etc., but
mostly blasting away for their own enjoyment. The boys
sang for assemblies, participated in the Spring Concert.
formed a fine octette, and acquired a more basic founda-
tion in music. The voices ranged from high, clear tenors
down to the deep, mellow basses . . . harmonizing to-
gether there was a fine result . . . occasionally, however,
a few notes escaped which were not called for in the
O LET FREEDOM RING 0
With unfailing good nature and a beat of the baton,
Robert Iohnson, a newcomer to our music department,
calls the chorus to order .... What patience! Familiar
strains faintly float through the corridors, with sopranos
and altos harmonizing equally well . . . enjoyed hearing
Mr. Iohnson "tickle the ivories." This was a period of re-
laxation-what fun it was to stack our books, sit back,
and pour forth with gusto . . . however, we were often
reminded about chewing gum as well as our musical signs.
Altogether we worked hard, had a lot of fun, and gained
valuable and helpful training in musical experience.

Accepted the services of many new volunteers to in-
crease our size in a record-breaking march to success . . .

0 T0 GUARD YOUR WELL-BEING 0
With the old gymnasium and the dressing room as
headquarters, this club got oil to a good start. The girls
were mainly interested in a physical fitness program . . .
had several games with the boys athletic club . . . learned
new games . . . developed a worthy spirit ot enthusiasm
and enjoyment in athletics. The club moved outdoors and
participated in such sports as baseball, tennis and croquet
when the weather permitted . . . you should have seen
some of those home runs! Girls were especially interested
in basketball . . . completing a successful year, simply
filled with good times in sports, each member developed
many new friendships, and learned the real value of
ideals in sports.
0 TI-IEY'RE ALL DOING IT I
As we glide past the gym, what do we see but twenty-
tive busy twirlers. Ot course it would be monotonous just
drilling from 8:00 to 8:30 every morning for six solid weeks.
so there are other things included. Look! Now they are
exercising and getting physically fit for tuture activities ....
Yes, they are also taught the latest dance steps to break
the monotony . . . we will later see them rehearsing march-
ing routines. The members ot the club are selected on their
ability and personal appearance. They, too, have an aim-
to measure up to the standard baton twirlers.

One of the many useful and practical units of Ferndale
. . . established for the first time this year to acquaint stu-
dents with knowledge of the library. The club has accom-
plished much during this year in the way of keeping books
in order and contributing articles to the bulletin board,
also handing out those little white slips that really are a
headache when suddenly out ot a blue sky someone po-
litely, and smilingly, hands you a "please remit." Several
programs demonstrating just what they should have
learned were given .... All in all, real achievements

0 REFLECTOR HITS THE HIGH SPOTS O
At the beginning of the school term of the year 1942.
the Reflector staff met to bring forth a book we hope you will
cherish cmd refer to in your old age. We decided our theme
to be aviation, since it seems to be the present and future
keynote of America. With the co-operation of the staff, we
were soon on our way with the general layout. We must
confess copy assignments caused headaches . . . but
we worked diligently and offered what wisdom we had.
Mr. Kunkle's good advice, along with his willingness and
patience, contributed to the success of our Reflector. The
co-editors spent many hours working on page layouts.
Our brilliant ideas brought money to finance the book . . .
yes, we all participated, by jivin' at the "Iinxs" dance
and dishing out nickles for guesses on the mysterious ob-
stacles to be found in the cakes . . . we even canvassed
homes to sell Xmas cards. The most interesting feature of
our book is its informality . . . take notice to the informal
snapshots taken and supplied by Mr. Custer. The aim of
the entire Reflector staff was to make this annual an at-
tractive and invaluable book . . . we hope you like it!
0 COURIER DRAMATIZES SCHOOL LIFE 0
"Hey, did you get your article Written yet?" "How
many words in that write-up?" "There will be a staff meet-
ing at 3:30 in Mr. Hill's room." These were a few of the
common remarks heard from time to time among the
Courier staff members.
Editors-in-chief of the school paper were Ruth Weimer
and Ioan Gilbert, two capable seniors who helped the
paper weather many a storm. The humorous, eye-filling
columns were products of Marilyn Miller's creative mind,
while the thrilling sport's columns were written by Steve
Virus. Exchanging school papers with many nearby schools,
loanne Kelly was a busy editor. To keep the school in-
formed about our alumni, both at home and on the front
lines of action, Lois lean Hassenplug had a difficult as-
signment, but she filled it very capably. Robert Wright,
our number one ace in the art field, very effectively
planned the art designs for each issue. Assisting Bob was
Carl Larson, who shared the responsibilities equally well.
Dorothy Rubrecht headed the busy reporters who hounded
everyone for news, news, and more news.
The journalists attributed much of their success to Mr.
Hill, who advised them soundly on difficult problems and
snags confronting them. The staff can proudly look back
upon a record of success and popularity.

We Wish to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the staff members
of the l943 Reflector and to all others who directly or indirectly have worked so faithfully

that Without their cooperation and wise suggestions these accomplishments would not
have been possible.
