CAPJ- NEIFERT Mrs. ARTHUR BOBCEAN
The Board of Education is a group of five qualified persons of the school district, who are elected by the people
to serve the community.
The main purpose of the Board is to formulate policy. They also approve the contr acts being offered to the
teachers and supervise the use of school funds.
In July, the people of Brownstown-Berlin Fractional H1 School District go to the poles to vote on school issues.
Board members are elected to serve a three -year term, and there is no limit to the number of terms one person
On November 9, 1956, bids were let for thc construction of a new elementary school. This school should be in
use by September 1957. Since the census predicts a sutdent body of at least 2200 by September 1959, further ad-
ditions to the John M. Barnes School and the High School are now being planned.

Reading School Principal J,
School will be nearly over by the time you receive your yearbooks.
This year has been another year of opportunity for you. Have you profited as much as you could have from this
year of school?
M. Barnes School Principal
To the Students of Our Schools:
You could have made great progress in your subjects. Have you grown in dependability in school? Have you
made more friends in this school year?
Is our school a better school because of your presence as a student? Ask yourself just what you did?
Did you participate as a member of a team, in aplay or in another group which helped to make our school better
known and more respected in our community and nearby communities?
The world of today, and of tomorrow, is eagerly awaiting your arrival as an active participating member. Jobs
and careers await you. Prepare yourself now for the golden opportunities that can be yours. All of the songs have
not been written. Much is yet to be achieved and the youth of today will be the doers of tomorrow.
Your teachers join with me in extending to you wishes for your continued happiness and success.

The purposes of Student Council are to unify student organization under one general control, to aid in the in-
ternal administration of the school, and to promote and regulate student activities.
Each class, grades seven through twelve, is represented by two students elected from the class as well as its
Class President, chartered organizations are entitled to one representative each. Herb Gabehart, President, and
Mr. Van Wyhe, sponsor, led the group throughout the 56-57 school year.
The Student Council has power to plan and carry out activities which pertain to the classes represented, make
and enforce laws governing dress and conduct at the dances and games, and arrange, through a bus committee,
transportation for the students to the away games. Three representatives were sent to the 12th Annual Student
Council Conference in Ann Arbor. Representatives help plan and arrange the Career Conference and help or-
ganize the Huron Association of Student Councils of which we're a member.
Inthe spring of each year, the Council sponsors a magazine drive. From this, they get the money to help them
carry out the projects for the year. With the money from this drive, a duplicator and two typewriters were bought
for the Rockazette. From this money, S200 is given to the Assembly Committee for professional assemblies.
The council is ever expanding as the school increases its enrollment. The Student Council will always remain,
"the voice of the students."

How would you like to come to school day after day, week after week, and go through the same classes with
no change in your schedule until you graduate? I'll bet there would be a lot of complaints, and among the
complainers we might find you.
Yes, four years of your life could be pretty dull and monotonous, when you look at it. Fortunately, our school
isn't operated that way. Our school, like many others, has different committees to make school life more in-
teresting and enjoyable. Among these organizations we have the Assembly Conunittee.
Do you realize that from every grade in the Junior and Senior High School, there is at least one person re-
presenting you and the other members of your class?
These representatives have meeting whenever necessary to decide on various assemblies that would be in-
structive and educational, but also entertaining to the audience. The student participants get good training by
getting up in front of a large group of people without getting nervous or frightened.
The assemblies are in two main groups--pep and professional. At the pep assemblies, held for coming games,
the committee in charge has one or two skits, and pep talk and some cheers.
The professional assembly covers a wide variety in the field of entertainment. These might include an edu-
cational speaker, a vocal quartette, or a magician. These types are found to be among the ones enjoyed by
the students and teachers of good old Flat Rock High. ,s

The cooperative effort of many students since A
last fall has resulted in bringing the 1957 Ram-
bler to you.
This year, with the best effort put forth toward
a wider coverage of all phases of high school
life,it has been better than ever. We have come
along way since the first yearbook, we are proud
of our accomplishments.
As the school grows in size and prestige, so grows
our yearbook. This past year the Rambler was
underthe leadership ofJackie Herzfeld and spon-
sored by Mr, Elam Hertzler.
To some students, the Rambler is a book which
can be purchased in the fall for 32.50 and re-
ceived in the spring, but to the staff, it is a time
and interest consuming project which demands
attention every day and even during vacations,
The Rambl erisa mirror of our high school days
which shows traditions, activities, organizations,
and fellow classmates who might be forgotten,
but whowillbe brought to mind long after grad-

The Flat Rock High School band,led by alternating drum majorettes, one assistant drum majorette, and six ma-
jorettes,makes an impressive sight as it furnishes halftime shows for all of thc home football games. Their uniforms
ofgreenand gold show off to advantage when it goes through its various marching routines. The band,under the dir-
ection of Mr. Ralph Roudi, was one of the two hundred bands chosen to assemble at the University of Michigan to
attend the Annual Band Day. These bands formed to make the world's largest massed band.
In August, 1956, one drum majorette had the opportunity to attend a majorette's convention in Indiana.
Some regular band members are also included in a dance band, directed by Mr. I-lenegar. This dance band enter-
tains during assemblies, parties, and a few dances. After the football season, the band turns its attention to concert
work. During the year, several fine concerts are presented which provide musical entertainment of a fine quality.
ln the spring, the band turns its attention to outdoor practice, in order to prepare itself for various parades.
As each year passes, the band increases in size and improves.

The primary functions of the Glee Club, Girls Chorus, and Seventh and Eighth Grade Chorus are: to appear before
the public, to furnish music for assemblies, graduation, and other school activities, and to give the participants a
chance to learn how to sing in a group.
Mr. Ralph Roudi conducts the Glee Club while Mr. Jack Henegar directs the Girls Chorus and the Seventh and
Eighth Grade Chorus. These groups annually give Christmas and Spring Concerts.
The groups meet separately twice each week to rehearse. The members are graded on how well they learn the
music as well as the way they sing. One fourth of an academic credit is given for each year of membership in the
Glee Club or Girls Chorus.
Each year, the new members of the Glee Club Canbuytheir Glee Club pin and after the second year their letter.
In May, tryouts are held for anyone who wishes to become a member of any of the three groups.

What is a cheerleader? A cheerleader is a small, bright package of enthusiasm and energy that can be found
leading the cheers through all kinds of weather.
A cheerleader controls and leads the people with sportsrnenship and spirit to help the teams to victory.
Flat Rock's Cheerleaders are made up of two squads,Varsity and Reserve. This past year, the Varsity has had
four Seniors and one Sophomore, The Reserves had had four Seniors and four Juniors. Each squad had a repre-
sentative at Student Council and Assembly Committee.
To be a cheerleader, one must be neat, mannerly, love cheering, have cheering ability, and a C average in
her studies. She must be enthusiastic and peppy with good school spirit, She should hold no rivalry against the
other teams. Under the guidance of Miss Jean Bartlett, the cheerleaders can be found practicing, faithfully, in
the halls of Flat Rock High every fourth hour during the football and basketball seasons.
Each year, the cheerleaders attend the Annual Cheering Clinic for the Huron League which was held in
Ypsilanti this year.
The purpose and the aim of this organization is to promote a feeling of good school spirit and pep at the
The students ha ve given their overwhelming support, and the girls have had a successful year.

How many times have you gone into the library this past year? Probably, if you had counted them, the final
answer would be quite surprising. Now ny to imagine one of the times, and just think about what you saw when
you first went through the door. The windows in the library were always shiny and clean: the books were neatly
in their places: there were many magazines, newspapers, and reference books for the students' use. But the li-
brarians were also among the things you saw. They were probably the most important accessory in the library.
They always were there to help you find the things you had to find. They have been a big help to all of us
throughout the past year, and we hope they will accept our thanks.
The office girls have done a Very good job, too. They have helped the teachers when they needed help, and
did a score of other things. They tooktime from their regular schedule of activity to help when they were called
upon. Not only did they work in the downstairs office, but they were in the Reading Building to assist the grade
We owe a lot to these girls who have been a help to the students and faculty of Flat Rock High.

October 3 is the date to be remembered by these girls. After a game of
volley ball,the Senior girls had prepared a few stunts for the initiates. Re-
freshments were served and dancing began.

The Rams football team had a 5-2 record in
the Huron League Standings. The record, as
a whole, was 5-3 with a non-league game
against Grosse He. This year the captain
wasjerry Simpson and Tony Rea as most Val-
uable playerx Lonnie Bain was the team's
leading scorer with eight touchdowns.
The 1956 Rams were a very determined group
after losing three of their first four games.
Just when it looked as if they were in for a
Very bad season, they pulled themselves up
by their bootstraps and proceeded to win the
last four by playing a good brand oftough,
hard football. At the end of the season, they
would have compared favorably with top
notch Ram teams in the past.

There's satisfaction in meeting a challenge
Working at Edison. thereis challenge in the very air you breathe. Itis
logical. This is a growing company in a growing industry. And growth
always creates problems. This is also a pioneering company, constantly
challenging the accepted ways of doing things.
Challenge, opportunity, progress . . . they're like steps. The steps that
lead to a satisfactory career. And advancement within the company is
the standard practice rather than the exception.
We have heard it said that Edison is a good place to work. True! One of
the reasons that makes it so-particularly for high school graduates
entering the business world for the first time-is that Edison people are
friendly, sympathetic and helpful.
If you reside in metropolitan Detroit, we invite you to visit our Employ -
ment Department, 2000 Second Avenue. Elsewhere, job application
forms are available at any Edison customer office.
