At the -outset of the season coaches Harvey
williams, and Bob llcConnell bad a rather green
eleven: however, as the schedule wore on, the
gridders rounded into shape. The defensive qual-
ities improved remrkably, as is shown by the
fact that the Blue Aces goal line was not touch-
ed in the last five contests.

With serious mien and dignity
The class of thirty-seven
Eaabarked upon their senior year
By their adviser driven.
In all the school activities
The seniors do excel,
In football, band and orchsstre,
And basketball as well.
They swell the ranks of choruses
And act ln many plays:
In fact are quite the lenders
In many, many ways.
In scholarship they do not lack,
And usually take the lead:
In ranking high in county tests
They manage to succeed.
Although there have been some defects,
Some paltry, few transgressions,
In looking at it all in all
They merit ccmsendatlone.

This past school year Granville has been
experimenting wlth the Supervised-Study-Period
System. This is a very recent development in
modern education, comprising a school day of
four, hour and a half periods, the first half of
each period being devoted to recitation and dis-
cussion and the second half to an intensive
study directed by the teacher. Thus all homework
outside of school is minimized to unfinished
business, giving the students more tim for out-
side activities such as sports and clubs. The
supervised study period is especially helpful
ln the study of languages and scientific and
mathentlcal subjects, since the teacher can an-
swer the students' questions as they come up in
the course of study. And it has also been prov-
en that in any subject more is gained from a
study period directly after the class than at
any other time. This system is being tried with
great success ln many other cities.
U U U
Granville High School with its nine organ-
isations, that cover activities ranging from
home economics to science, frm dramatics to
scout work, has kept thestudents in constant
notion wlth this wide variety of work.
The school still possesses those clubs,
such as the B1-Y, Girl Reserves, Delta lu Kappa,
Student Council and Journalism with their usual
good showings. Our second year in the Honor
Society contributed five seniors and three jun-
lors this year. The year of 1951 has brought
three new clubs into the building: namely, the
Science Club, the Girl and Boy Scouts, and the
Junior and Senior Home Economic groups.
le feel cur organisations have accomplished
great things and we are hoping to continue them
ln Future years.
e e s
The graduation of last year's seniors took
a heavy toll on the membership of the high
school Dramatics Club. However new members were
chosen on their ability ln regularly conducted
tryouts, but some were chosen for their ability
in school productions.
Among these productions were the three one-
act plays, presented by the three upper classes,
for the benefit of the Annual. The sophomores
presented 'Cleaned and Pressed", starring Phil
Oxley as the younger brother who was initiated
into the nqsterles of how to 'handle' the fairer
The juniors presented the play 'Thanks
Awhallv", with Dave Leach, the only boy in the
play, taking the leading part on two repeated
words. Leslie Seagrave played the part of his
sister, and llable Campbell was the young lady
whom he loved.
The seniors presented mother farce enti-
tled 'Romance is a Racket", in which Stanley
Hanna furnished the romance necessary to win the
affections of the girl-Eleanor Shumaker, and
lncldently hed an encounter with a notorious
crinnal from Brooklyn.
Drerntics Club Flay
The Delta Hu Kappa presented a three act
play, 'The Tinker", choosing the csst from its
more seasoned members. Because of illness
Stanley Hanna was not able to play the part of
the Tlnkuer, which was excellently portrayed by
Robert Rowland on short notice. Two brothers,
played by Harold Josif, and ld Deeds, had a pe-
culiar disagreement which the Tinker, who turned
cut to be their uncle, settled.
The juniors presented 'Phillip for Short"
as their class play this year. Dave llacblarmld
rlvaled the famous lr. Jekyll and lr. Hyde com-
binations, in his may changes of character,
playing the versatile Yellowstone guide, who was
mistaken first for an explorer, and then for a
erlmlnal, and finally turned out to be the re-
spectable son of a prominent business man.
Also ln the year's drautic schedule was
the operetta presented by the school chorus under
the direction of lr. Huff. Portraying a story
taken from the mystic realms of ancient China,
the operetta was full of that elusive stuff call-
ed rosnce. June Hlmtcr played the part of a
young princess, ln love with the keeper of the
court records--Dave Leach, while her father, the
terrible In Lung Fang, played by Harold Josiv,
had planned for her narrlage to a powerful old
prince--Nelson Corley. Others having leading
parts were Ellen Wathne, the prlnoess's nurse,
and Bd Granger the stuttering court Jester. The
orchestra and chorus.
The seniors are planning to present their
class play cn lay 28th and 29th. The play by
Robert Shernn is entitled 'Spccks Inheritance"
and includes eleven characters.
