I Pl ma i hh WLT- u ":' Eff: FACULTY 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 VanBuskirk. 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 Mr. Taylor. 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 FACULTY-STUDENT COUNCIL 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.
