PLEASANT HIGH SCHOOL When time has stolen our yeai ' s. and youths impetuous and fiery moments are gone, we shall retain the memories and joys of other days. When like the poet we sigh. ■Backward, turn backward. Time, in your flight. " we shall dream again through the Derrick of 1952. May its pages recall all the smiles and tears— all the images of well known places and events at M.P.HS. Board of Education MRS. LYLE BRISTOL Trustee MR. ROBERT COON Trustee You, the Board of Educa- tion, by your consolidated ef- forts have maintained and fostered the highest of edu- cational standards as may be attested by the Board of Ex- aminers of the University of Michigan. Under your direction and guidance, the fourth elemen tary school building com- memorating a former board member. Dr. Charles D. Pull- en, was planned, financed, and successfully constructed to enlarge an expanding school system. May this modern edifice symbolizing the latest design in educational accomplish- ment be a lasting reminder to the long and tedious hours so generously contributed for such an important responsi- bility — the education of fu- ture citizens for democratic living in a free America.

Comments from the Superintendent The school year 1952 is dra dng to a close ami on June 5th you will he identified as a graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School. I conuneud you for your worthy achievement. I remember reading a motto. ' " We have crossed the Bay in safety hut the Ocean lies in View. ' " You are at this point in your academic achieve- ment. The Bav represents the tools of learning supplied during your four years of work. The Ocean— the vast opportunities that lie ahead. The world todav is a victim of misdirected intelligence. You people have been equipped with the knowledge and the wisdom which will make you worthwhile citizens of service to your country and to your fellow- men. Use the knowledge you have gained to the further development of the individual and to benefit all the people. I am sure if vou show the same willingness in crossing the Ocean as you have shown in your four years of high school you will cross in safety and find an opportunity in life worth while. Good Luck!

MAY LANCE, MR. L. J. ROSS The preliminary feature of the Student Council was the publication of a mimeo- graphed news letter relating the activities and accomplishments of the school ' s current athletic and academic progress which was forwarded to servicemen and recent gradu- ates. With the finances acquired from the sale of activit.v tickets the Council sponsored three entertaining and educational assembly prograni-s: Nutchuck, the Alaskan lecturer and traveler: .Miss Phvllis P Phillips, interpreter of dramatic literature: and the Con- servatory Players who vividly presented the production. " Our American Cousins, " as was viewed by Abraham Lincoln on that tragic evening of April 14. 1865, at Ford ' s Theater. The Council also promoted the successful Homecoming festivities: " The Holly Ball, " the gala all-school holiday party: and rounded out the year ' s social calendar with a Carnival which furnished a " Fun Night " for the student body. An expanded Noon Hour Program, directed by Harolyn Filson, included a volley ball tournament which was accomplished prior to the scheduling ot the girls ' and boys ' basketball leagues. The Committee with the assistance of the Projector Club and Mr. Arnold Koch, director of audio visual aids, sponsored full-length, feature films which in- cluded some of the all time greats in Him production: Moby Dick, Sitting Pretty, Guadal- canal Diary, and Treasure Island. The Recreation Committee inaugurated an evening in- tramural Softball league in addition to promoting the noon hour sports. The Council ' s Citizenship Committee realized the need, and established a monitor system which successfully improved student conduct during the noon hour and at as- semblies The Mt. Pleasant Student Government .-Xssociation served as host to seven neigh- boring schools at the District Council Conference on March 26 and profitably discussed many of the perplexing problems pertinent to the area councils. The Student Council culminated their year ' s activities by establishing a specific policy which outlined the duties and responsibilities of existing committees; presenting the annual college scholarship; selecting a building gift; and supervising the all school spring elections.

NORTH CENTRAL . » ' -s ' 0 ' 78 C - S3 4«i7S 4i 5 I 1 After a slow, uncertain start the Oiler grid squad found themselves, and in a blaze of glory captured the North Central Class B Conference Title for the third time in five years. Head Coach Carlo Barberi and Line Coach Ed Weede were as- sisted by a new backfield coach. Ron Cooper, and with this able trio, the Oilers demonstrated such progress that they were unscored upon in their five conference games. The only definite Oiler setback was adminis- tered by Bay City Central ' s Class A eleven, how- ever the Barberimen had to battle to obtain a 19- 19 tie against the strong Saginaw St. Andrew Class C squad. Alma became the only other contender to score upon the Oilers, but they were overcome by the large margin of 40 to 13. While accumulating 75 points in their grid of- fense, the airtight Oiler defense shut out all Con- ference scoring threats and provided for an un- tied, undefeated and unscored upon conference season. The Oilers very appropriately ended Cadillac ' s 26 game winning siege by a hard fought 7-0 night game which brightened the festivities of the 10th Annual Homecoming. The team developed a potent backfield by be- ing able to shift from the line-smashing series of Dave Goodell to such speedy and shifty backs as Jerry Baker. Gene Hoyle, Gordon Mellencamp and Tom Pishos. Then with the same efficient dexteri- ty, the backfield was also able to shift to the spot- passing ability of quarterbacks Chuck MacGregor and Andy Phillips. The line play was highlighted by such hard-hit- ting chargers as Al KuUman. Gary Harless, Jim Watson, Frank Whitehead, Ken Decess and Ron Kreiner. These regulars were hard pushed by the reserve strength of Stan " Veit, Bob Getchell, " Raz- or " Lyon, Larry Strang, Don Lamont and Phil Foltz. Ends Bob Brasington, Harold Earnest, Dick Pfister, Jack Boomer and Carl Robert efficiently carried out their assignment and contributed to a major share of the Oiler defense. Senior gridders which strengthened the Oiler squad were Bill Fleming, Max Lovejoy and Rus- sell Strange with ready assistance to be oftered from such underclassmates as Leon Burr, Roy Chestnut, Ted Eisenberger, Tom Finch, Ron Freeze, Dorcey Harless, Ed Irvin, Dave Killian, R T Paullin. Scott Russell and Jim Wood. Eleven Oilers were rewarded by conference recognition Ken Decess, " Biggie " Goodell, Al KuUman and Chuck MacGregor received All-Con- . . (X)NFEI ENCE CHAMl ' S it fercnce first string honors. Jerry Baker and Bob Brasington were awarded berths on the All-Con- ference second team. Honorable Mentions went to Gordon Mellencamp, Tom Pishos. Dick Pfister and Harold Earnest. Decess, Goodell. MacGregor and Whitehead went on to gain state wide recognition, winning acclaim on the Class B All-State Squads. Next year ' s grid outlook appears bright with 20 returning lettermen and an undefeated reserve squad which will form a well balanced backlicld and a heavy, fast line. (IKADrATIXC.

Photography is the foundation of our yearbook. We are grateful to Mr. Clarence Fleming of Flem- ing ' s Studio and Camera Shop for the individual photographv; and to our staff cameraman. Russell Strange for his tedious efforts in arranging, shooting, and developing the photography which captured group activity in its natural setting. The division page art work comes from the skilled pen of our staff artist. Shirley Wood. The reproduction of the photography displays the expert workmanship of the Capital Photo En- gravers. Inc. of Lansing. The Enterprise Print Shop, Inc.. has taken our efforts and transformed them into the WoZ Derrick. Our appreciation is extended to our capable printers, Mr. Charles McConnell and Bill Preimsberg. for their professional assistance. The cover and binding of this edition exhibits the skilled craftsmanship of Hoag Sons ot Springport. Finallv. but most appropriately, we would like to thank the businessmen of Mt. Pleasant whose generous support has made financially possible the production of the 1952 Derrick. To create a true picture of life at M.P.H.S dur- ing the school vear has been the aim of each membei of the staff.
