CLASS OF 1 947
H I G H S C H O O L
Grand Rapids, .,
Proud of You!
Of your students' leadership always forthright
Their patriotism to their native landg
A school spirit always upheld,
lndustry and gaiety combined.
Of your athletes' never-clying school spirit
Their love of fight for higher goalsg
Their high ideals of good sportsmanship,
And the joy they express for a gain.
With profound admiration and respect, the class of '47 wishes to dedicate this
publication of the Wolverine to our able adviser and teacher, Miss Keller.
Through the past three years our path of study and social living has been
guided by her everfwilling hand. In no way will we ever be able even partially to
rcmunerate her for her interest in each and every individual.
Though We must leave, we shall never forget all the pleasant memories of the
joyous times we experienced with our wonderful friend. Much success and good
fortune in the future, Miss Keller, and may you always remember our class of '47
with the fond respect with which we shall surely remember you.

Up and Over
Godwin, we are proud of your thinclad per'
formances during the 1947 track season. Yes, like
last year, our boys this year again came through
with flying colors on the cinder pathways against
Looking back at last year's successful results we
found victories over Grandville, Lee, Rockford,
Lowell and the Ottawa Hills reserves. Our only
D. Sheler defeats came at the hands of Wyoming Park and
two class "A" teams, Creston and Ottawa.
Letter winners who returned this year were
Vronko-dashes, relayg Williams-880, broad
jump, relayg Heyboer -e mile, broad jumpg Speas,
De Graves, Payne -hurdlesg Kruis and Remese-
high jumpg Sheler- pole vault.
As the annual goes to press, our track team has
completed five meets, in which our team emerged
victorious over Comstock Park, East Grand Rapids,
Lee and Wyoming Park. We yielded our fourth
track meet of the season to Grandville. In defeat'
ing East G. R., Godwin became victor over last
year's Grand Valley Conference champions, and in
' defeating Wyoming Park, we became victors over
last year's regional champs.
Nearly all Grand Valley Conference meets were
held under the flood lights as night meets at the
Hut-diet Grandville track.

ff to a Good Start
For a beginning team, taking on all comers, the
Godwin girls had a very successful season in
The first two games with Coopersville were won
by the visitors, but they knew they had met a
team which played a fast open style of ball, and
had given them a good game. Godwin's peculiar
defense, a specialty of Coach Sexton, kept the win'
ners at bay much of the time, holding them to 17
points in the first game and I6 in the second. Alf
though the inexperienced "G" girls found their
basketball legs a bit wobbly and their eyes somef
what difficult to focus on the basket, they managed
to eke out l I points on the first occasion and 8 on
By the third game the Sexton Sextette was
ready with a power attack. In spite of the fact that
the long shot artist from Grandville threw in 21
points, the .xWlJlVCflHCS,a piled in 23.
The two game series with Hudsonville was split.
The Gold and Blue team lost by one point in the
game played away from home, and then came back
to win by the decisive score of 2648 on their own
floor. It was in these two games that the season's
high scorer, Isla Rink, proved her outstanding
ability by scoring a total of 25 points out of the
team's 40 points in the two games.
About that time Byron Center came along for
a scrimmage and neatly showed the Godwin girls
that there was still room for improvement, after
which, the Thirtyfsixth Street Six gathered together
and rolled easily over Kelloggsville and the Dutch
Twins from Christian High, climaxing the season
by taking the undefeated Comstock team by a score

The Scholarship Committee ref
tained a very active position in
calculating the various class averf'
ages and awarding the scholarship
trophy. The shriek ot' the iire siren
and the orderly lincs of students
leaving the huilding, not to menf
tion smug looks on the faces of
Honor Society memhers, indicated
that the Fire Drill Committee had
heen in action.
Four startled juniors and one
glowing senior were initiated into
the Society in an impressive ceref
mony early second semester,
hringing the cluh's memhership
up to fifteen. With the help of
Mrs. Gladys Saur, adviser, and
Mr. lvlartin Holstege, treasurer,

It wasn't all just fun thoughff they worked,
too every other Tuesday noon those meetings

the club members concentrated on their education
by taking field trips to different business places or
by having speakers attend their meetings. Thus,
the club achieved one of its main purposes.

greeting from Commercial Club members at the
