Seniors of FortyfFour:
Congratulations on your fine high school
record. I cannot help but commend each
one of you on your decision to complete
your high school education in spite of the
demands of the last few years of war.
You have "stuck to your guns" on the
home front and have done as much as
possible to prepare yourselves for some
constructive contribution to our society.
It is my sincere hope that your experif
ences here at Gig Harbor High will not be
just a memory, but that you have had a
challenging experience here that has awake
ened your conscience to the little things
you can do toward a more wholesome and
Goodfbyc and good luck.
- GEoRoE R. GILBERT,
To the Students of J fp ,K , A
Gig Harbor High Schoolzlh i'
There are many things which I would
like to say to you in a yearly message of
I could bring your words of praise for
past achievements or urge you toward
greater eHorts for the future. I could give
you a resume of last year's world events
or try to open your vision of the future.
But one thing seems to push all others to
the background in this year of conflict.
Every one of us must think in terms of
war. We are told on good authority that
every boy who is now enrolled in high
school must expect to enter the service of
his country upon graduation from high
school if not before that time. Every girl
upon graduation must expect to meet the
challenge of loyalty and patriotism by
training for or entering upon some useful
Why must we do this? Because we be'
licve in the "American Way of Life," and
freedom must be fought for continually.
We must face many sacrifices that a
brighter future may be in store for all of us.
Very sincerely yours,

Shortly after school opened in the fall, elections were held for the Student Body Officers. The
following students were selected: President, Ellis Ryang VicefPresident, Stan Gauthier, Secretary,
judy Beardsleyg and Treasurer, Jessie Dorsey. Other members who formed the Student Council were
the presidents of the classes and the Boys' and Girls' clubs. The group was under the supervision of Mr.
The main project of the year was to make out a new point system for earning awards in all
:activities other than athletics. The whole plan was based on the scholarship of the students.
November 29th was set aside for the students to buy enough defense stamps to earn a
Minute Man flag. Because over 90 per cent of them did this, we were entitled to fly the flag.
The Student Council also undertook the project of arranging for the sale of milk during the lunch
One of the purposes of the council has been to represent the students in planning the activities
and influence them in carrying the plans out.
We, the Student Body, deeply regret the death of one of our number, Donald Riveness, and
extend our most sincere sympathy to his family.

Recording Secretary, Judy Beardsleyg Corresponding Secretary, June Ahlhergg and Treasurer, George
Murphyffthey started their new year hy winning the P.fT.A. drive. The Hve dollars won from this

VicefPresident, Eugene Pearsong Recording Secretary, June Ahlbergg Corresponding Secretary, Jessie

students and gained many new ones, we had a new class adviser, Mr. Wehmhoff. Under his capable

junior boys participating in sports were: john Ross, Troy Parish, Roy Vinkenes, Eugene
Rutland, Paul Shoemaker, Dick Valley, Arthur Johnston, james Boman, Klarion Peterson, and Floyd
Arnold. Many of the girls turned out for athletics after school one or two nights a week.
T'ne Juniors gave a ten minute program in the All School War Stamp assembly, the last of
February. It consisted of John Ross playing his saxaphone, accompanied by jean Austin, and Bar'
bara Wing playing her clarinet, accompanied by Elaine Crawford.
The main project of the year was the annual junior Prom, which was held May 12th in the
High School gymnasium. A suitable theme, "Spring," was chosen for decorations. The gym had the
appearance of a garden complete with a picket fence, many spring flowers and greenery with pastel
streamers hanging from the ceiling. The pastel frocks worn by the girls and the soft strains of the
orchestra contributed to the illusion. The success fulfilled all the hopes of those who worked so
faithfully to make it so.

What matters if a man possess the genius of a Curie, the talents of a Rembrandt, all the
heauty of Apollo and wisdom of a Solomon, If his wealth of possession he not founded on a well'
developed hody and spirit, his achievements will avail lim little.
As a builder of healthy hodies and minds, competitive athletics has no peer. Athletics develop
two main tendencies. First, the feeling of capahility within the individualg and second, the feeling of
loyalty to himself and teamfmates.
I have coached many boys. I received a letter from one not long ago in which he said, "Coach,
I'm now entering into the big game where the playing is for keepsg the rules are tougher and the
penalty for mistakesff-death! Thanks a lot for driving us hard when we were working that hall
toward the goalf!-Signed i'Chris."
This world of nervous huhfhuh needs and will need in the future more and more physically
fit men and women to keep it on an even keel.
Above all learn how to play with each other and how to see the other side of a question.
Our motto is to he, Play the game-to winf-but win or lose, play the game fuirfbe Ll sport
-f-be a liard loser but a gracious winner-V-build a strong body -ti cornbative driving spirit and a clear

The Gig Harbor Bulldogs were the dark horse of the TrifCounty, winning 4 games, losing 3,
and tying l, Coach McGaughey molded a fast, rugged, hardfhitting football team from li returning
lettermen and a fine group of newcomers. The team used an assortment of plays. Coach lVlcGaughey
taught the boys plays from "T" formation and from an unbalanced line.
Paul Shoemaker made the TrifCounty first team: Ellis Ryan and George Murphy made the
second team, and Don Schulz received honorable mention.
As Coach McGaughey predicted there was a definite upswing in Gig Harbor football this year.

Wheii hasehall rolled around this year Coaeh MCGaughey found nearly all of last year's hasef
hall team was on hand and some very good looking prospects.
This year the league was split, due to gasoline shortage. Our league was made up of Vaughn,
South Kitsap, Vashon, and Gig Harbor. We played two games with eaeh team. The winning team of
this half of the league played the northern half winner for the TrifCounty League Championship.
This was our last year to participate in TrifCounty league hasehall, as we will play in the
Pierce County league next year.
Basketball was the first sport of the season and the girls found that shooting fouls was not
the easiest thing to do. Out of twenty shots the highest numher made was nine, and several aehieved
this. The next sport was tumbling, some of the girls accomplished flips, headstands, haekhends and
some group work. Basehall, the third and most popular sport, had the largest turnout of all.
The athletie award for the girls is a ehenilled There will he several girls proudly wearing
their wellfearned emhlem next year.
