From Bus Drivers 76 H
As the warm days of spring drew near, and
the call of the birds echoed from among the
newly budded leaves, the inspiration of
hiking crept into my walking shoes which
started me on my trek of unknown destina-
tion. As I neared the edge of town, I saw
the essence of fatherhood in full glory, Mr.
Burgess enjoying a game of baseball with his
two boys. Across the street Miss Butler
romped with her dog, while in the back-
ground Miss Barnes was feeding her cats.
About a block down the street Mr. Hine
was taking a few shots with his movie camera
of Miss Dontje's and Mr. Schelhas's golf
technique. I glanced up in time to see Miss
Kaminske and Miss Bowe leaving town on
their last motor trip for the duration. While
venturing into the country, Miss Cosby
passed me on her bicycle. I soon came upon
Miss Robson and Mrs. Buehl sitting beneath
a sturdy oak mulling over several ideal
house plans, while Miss Page was preparing
a lunch by the open fire.
With a parched throat and tired feet, I
stopped at Mr. Garner's farm. Mr. Jones
was tending the farm for the day helping with
carpentry Work in and about the buildings.
At a nearby roadside table, the teachers,
Handicraft club was holding a meeting under
the direction of Mr. Schilling who was doing
a few sketches. Miss vanWestrenen and
Miss Leiter were sewing. To further my
journey, I trudged on to the Thornapple
River. Upon its lofty banks, a crew of men
appeared to be having a good time. With
fishing poles slung in every direction, the
Messrs. Aten, Damson, Reinhardt, Goodell,
Gies, Knopf, and Hansen were identified.
Under yon tree, enjoying the shade and good
books, were the Messrs. Brozak, Lower, and
As the sun slowly sank, I decided to turn
my footsteps toward home again. As I slow-
ly pegged my way into town, I was invited by
Miss Campbell to investigate her collection
of cups and saucers. With this in mind I
started on, soon to discover Miss MeElwain
in her garden. Being very much tempted, I
stopped for a drink of tomato juice. My
destination not yet reached, I continued.
Upon nearing home, I discovered Mr. Taylor
riding down Broadway on his bicycle, he,
too, carrying a fishing pole. Apparently he
was one of the crew, but I had missed him.
The black, sullen night fell upon the world.
With the vivid thoughts of the day, I lay my-
self to rest and to dream of the hobbies and
avocations of our faculty.

GIRLS LEAGUE BOARD
The Girls League Board is the governing body of the Girls League of which every girl in
high school is a member.
The league has accomplished a great deal this year in encouraging Junior Red Cross work.
It paid the membership fee in that organization for every student in high school and conducted
salvage drives for old silk and nylon hose, records, and old sweaters. It cooperated with the
Junior Red Cross Knitting Club in arousing student interest in knitting blocks for five afghans
which were sent to army and navy hospitals.
The board sponsored a benefit tea for the Junior Red Cross, presented the girls' scholarship
cup, and performed many other tasks for the general welfare of the school.
The Girls League Board is comprised of eleven members. One country girl and one city
girl are chosen from each class. These girls choose additional members to act as unit chairmen.
The units and their chairmen were: vocational, Bonnie Branstetter, social service, Mary
Ketcham, entertainment, Florence French. The officers this year were: Mary French,
president, Juanita Swift, vice-president, Judy Mulder, secretary, Ella' Fisher, treasurer. Miss
Rowe was faculty sponsor.
BOYS UNION COUNCIL
The governing body of the Boys Union is called the Boys Union Council, and its officers are
elected by the boys of the high school.
Officers for the past year were: president, Richard Thomas, vice-president, Joseph Beck,
secretary-treasurer, Orville Bush, and sergeant-at-arms, John Coleman. The adviser was
Two big dances were sponsored by the council. In the fall the Hunters Ball was given, and
everyone came in hunting clothes. Elizabeth Doster acted as chairman of the decorations,
Gordon Ironside, tickets and programs, Harmon Wilcox, refreshments, Richard Thomas and
Jack Buholtz, clean-up and music. During the second semester another dance was sponsored,
called the Farmers Frolic. Pauline Chandler acted as chairman of the publicity, Douglas
Payne, decorations, James Malcolm and Harl Daniels, refreshments, Duane Ottosen, music,
and William Kelly, clean-up. By the way the students turned out to the dances, the council
knew they were a great success.
Early in the fall the council sponsored a welcome assembly for the new boys in school, at
which Mr. Brozak proved he knew his freshmen. Under Richard Thomas's capable leadership,
the council has also discussed how it could help the school's Victory efforts and what the boys'
attitude is toward school awards. V
The main governing body of the school is the Faculty-Student Council. Meetings are held
every Tuesday, and representatives voice their opinions on matters of importance to the school.
A year ago the students elected the officers, with Ray Kenyon stepping into ex-mayor Evelyn
Townsend's place, William Kelly being elected traffic manager, Morris Hill, chief justice,
Harold Townsend, public service chief, and Duane Ottosen, sanitary engineer. Those selected
to serve on the commissions were: William Garrison, Thomas Dolan, and Duane Stamm, traffic
commission, Marjorie Norton, Jack Walton, and Barbara Shannon, justice commission, Thomas
Waters, Richard Foster, and Mary Ketcham public service commission, Pauline Chandler,
Kenneth Lane, and Gail Foster, sanitary commission. Miss Rowe and Mr. Jones represented
the faculty on the council.
Mayor Kenyon automatically became chairman of the council. Mary Ketcham was elected
vice-chairman, Barbara Shannon, secretary, and Harold Fuller, general treasurer. Pauline
Chandler was appointed athletic treasurer by the athletic board.
For the second semester Pauline Chandler was elected vice-chairman, the other officers
remaining the same.
During the year the council worked out ways in which to bring students and teachers into
closer contact. Committees were appointed to secure a service flag for the school.
The council's greatest achievement was the organization of the Victory Corps. Next in
importance came the War Bond and Stamp contest to see which class could buy enough bonds
to finance a jeep, the sophomores carried off the honors.
