"There are no distant points in the world any longer
. . . Our thinking in the future must be world wide"
We appreciate the validity of this statement more
as each day passes. During these times of satellites and
inter-ballistic missiles, the vast amount of territory in
the world can be covered in an amazingly short time.
Consequently, the place of young people in this
world has become most significant. Taking our place
in this progress may not be avoided. Though the sea
lanes lessen the distance between the countries of the
world, our graduates must still close the gaps in world
We dedicate this 1958 Capri to that endeavor.

l Q .V '
Since 1701, when Antoine de la Mothe
Cadillac said that the Detroit River was the
gateway to the West, the river has become
increasingly important. The Port of Detroit,
at present, ranks second largest in the United
States in value of trade. On a tonnage basis,
it is in twelfth place.
There are good reasons for this progress.
The Detroit River is a natural waterway with
wide straight channels and an excellent loca-
tion. There are thirty-one miles of developed
waterfront along the river.
Our port has become not only important
in Great Lakes shipping but is a growing
international port and the largest city in the
world on an international border.
With the opening of the St. Lawrence Sea-
way in 1959, Detroit will experience further
growth. Ships carrying merchandise from
practically every country in the world will be
passing by its doorstep. This trafhc will bring
to the city, knowledge, wealth, increased em-
ployment and industry.
Cadillac may or may not have realized the
tremendous potential of this city, but the
Mumford High School students, as citizens of
Detroit, know that they will benefit greatly
from the Seaway Project. For this reason, the
theme of the 1958 Capri is the opening of the
St. Lawrence Seaway - Detroit's door to the

The pride of Mumfords English Depart-
ment this year was the American Literature
television course. The class was attended by
one hundred sixty pupils who viewed their
lessons on television sets placed in the audi-
torium. One of Mumford's own teachers, Miss
Rosalind Olmsted, was selected as the on camf
era teacher. Other teachers involved in this
program were Mr. john Meng and Mrs. Blos-
som Helman, who were the viewing teachers.
They met with the group, then divided into
classes of ten for conference periods.
Mumfordites also attended well rounded
programs in composition and literature. In
addition, students could choose from classes
in radio speech, drama, public speaking, cor-
rective speech, journalism, or world literature.
The departments included pilot courses for
students who were capable of moving along
rapidly as well as special classes for those who
had trouble with the subject.
Students in Mrs. Zelda Pollinger's Literature class regularly used many

"No conjugating of verbs? No memoriz-

prised students who took part in the new ex-
perimental French course of Mumfords For-
eign Language Department.
"Thats true," explained Madame Monique
XY'agncr and Madame May Czajkowa. instruc-
tors of the Audio Visual program this year,
Students learned the language by listening
and repeating. Recordings, slides, pictures,
and films were also used to help the teachers.
ln class the students used only French.
They learned vocabulatly and tenses through
associating sounds and meanings.
The main purposes of the course were to
give students a basic understanding of sen-
tence structure and vocabulary by hearing it.
and to acquaint them with the French people,
their homes, their history, and their customs.
Latin and Spanish classes were conducted
All of the students who took part in Mum-
ford's Foreign Language program realized

ting along with and understanding the other

biology students this year were taught tht
functionings of the plant and animal world
which surrounds them.
Mumford's Science Department, under the
leadership of Mr. John Strandberg, offered
Mumfordites a wide selection of courses. In-
cluded were: biology, chemistry, physics,
physiology, and physiography. For those stu-
dents who were interested in floral arrange-
ment and cultivation of plants, there were
courses in Horistry and greenhouse. Also, a
general biology course was offered, for which
there was no college prep credit.
The new course of semi-micro chemistry.
which was introduced last term, was offered
again this year as it proved to be popular
among the students.
Our contact with the Science Department
has stimulated in all of us an awareness of
life and its many intricate functionings.

Business education consisted of study and
experience designed to prepare a student for
11 career in commerce and industry.
The Mumford student majoring in busif
ness education followed, primarily, the gen-
eral preparation courses of study required for
graduation. Along with this curriculum, the
student selected one phase of the four-direc-
tional topics of business preparation.
The four vocational choices available in
Mumford were stenography, bookkeeping and
accounting, general clerical, and retailing.
Also, various courses, such as merchandising
and business law, were offered to enrich the
students' business background.
As Mr. Baird termed the objectives of his
department, "We attempt to make an indi-
vidual adequate for entry into business and to
lay a foundation for development in that field
and for future studies."

Under the general supervision of vocational
instructors, the latest and finest shop equip-
ment and facilities were available for stu-
tlents' use here at Mumford.
Our wood shop, for example, contains wall-
type storage lockers for individual projects,
a finishing room with built-in spray booth,
power machines painted in colors for safety
purposes and with waste disposal ducts con-
nected to an under-the-floor exhaust system.
Other features include a durable parquet
floor and fluorescent lights together with large
window-lined walls for natural illumination.
Our shops also have an adjoining amphi-

partment consisted of the sewing, clothing,

Each of these followed a plan of instruction
designed to give students practical knowledge

vocational studies is that, "Every individual,
regardless of his planned vocation, should en-

Fine Arts Department offered one of the most
complete curriculums in the city.
Through the many varied vocal classes,
Mumford singers participated in programs
and other activities throughout the year.
Our Mumford Band and Orchestra offered
experience for all those with any degree of
Classes were also conducted for those with-
out any previous musical experience. These
included courses of instruction for all band
and orchestra instruments and classes in voice.
To encompass the other fields in Fine Arts,
Mumford's young artists were engaged in
drawing, painting, commercial art, poster
drawing, designing, and other fields of art
Not to exclude the popular field of handi-
crafts and to complete the wide Fine Arts
program, crafts, ceramics, jewelry, and pho-

Through our addition of a track class to the
Health Department program, boys who were
interested in running track, broad jumping,
or high jumping were able to get special in-
struction and help.
For those who were not interested in track,
the Health Department offered many other
courses. There were classes in football, base-
ball, basketball, and swimming for the boys.
The sports for the girls included tennis, bad-
minton, modern dance, and swimming. Co-
educational, a new course, taught a combined
class of boys and girls dancing and volley ball.
Students who wished to take more than the
required two years of health were offered such
courses as synchronized swimming, water bal-
let, life saving, advanced swimming and ad-
vanced dance where the girls performed in-
terpretive dance work.

Working in small groups led by the older
students also provided the new members with
an opportunity to become acquainted with

Experience was the keynote of Mumfords
Club for Future Teachers of America. Mem-
bers who had been in the club for at least
one semester taught classes in the elementary
schools. These students were similar to stu-
dent-teachers, excepting the fact that the regu-
lar teacher was in the room at all times and
the future teachers did not teach every day.
This program, more than any other one thing,
carried out the aim of the club-to promote
interest in the profession of teaching through
experience. Also stressing experience, the
group assisted in testing the incoming fresh-

Future Health Teachers, the club for girls
interested in the field of health, physical edu-
cation, and recreation, was affiliated with both
Future Teachers Club and GAA. By taking
part in the activities offered this year, the
girls were better equipped to decide if they
wanted to major in health education in col-
lege. They had a better understanding of the
"behind the scene" activities of a health teach-
er. The girls did clerking and assistant teach-
ing in the girls' health department. Some of
the members did cadet teaching one hour a
week at elementary schools.
At club meetings the girls studied curricula,
costs, and entrance requirements of various
colleges, under the direction of Miss Marie
Pauli. They have also helped many Mumford
girls make the decision as to whether or not
they will go on in the field of health education.
Those members who so desired took a ten
hour course in basketball refereeing, went to
a held-hockey clinic, and went bowling with
the group. The entire club took a trip to Ypsi-
lanti to visit the campus of Eastern Michigan
College and to talk with health majors there.
They also attended a dance concert at another
high school and a synchronized swimming

proportion to the growth of the school.

the Student Council sponsored the annual
Snow Ball and Spring Fling dances. and par-

which was set aside by the school to orient
the freshmen to school activities and func-
tions. The Student-Faculty Baseball Game.
the Faculty Tea, the Clothing and Torch
Drives, and the Student-Teacher Exchange

Mumford's council would remain one of the
few schools in Michigan to have a bi-cameral
system. Under the leadership of Mr. George
Cairns, Mrs. Sophie Kloss, Miss Doris Utter,

Promoting brotherhood and understanding
between liuropean countries and the United
States, the American Field Service annually
sponsors a foreign student exchange.
After rigorous examination and numerous
interviews, exchange students are chosen by a
process of elimination. Qualities taken into
tonsideration were academic status, working
knowledge of a foreign language, and the
ability to adapt easily in a foreign country.
The individual must also possess a compata-
bility towards other individuals. Wfhar is
most important, the student must serve as an
ambassador of good will since he represents
the youth and culture of America.
Students visiting Mumford this year were
Monique Halperin from France and Gerd
Roos from Germany, who shared their experi-
ences with American students for one year.
In exchange, Elaine Portner was our repre-
sentative overseas, and spent last summer in
Germany. All three of these students ex-
pressed their views at the Foreign Student
Assembly presented by the Student Council.
Believing that "youth can bridge the gap to
better understanding," Mumfordites honored
the teen-age ambassadors.
A typical American school lunch is enjoyed by Gerd Roos, American Field Service exchange student from Germany,
and Harry Lister, Gerd's American "brother".

The success of many school programs was
due, greatly, to the efhciency of the stage crew.
Under the direction of Mr. Howard Mehr,
technician, and Mr. Donald jones, assistant
technician, the twenty-eight boy stage statf
was responsible for all technical details for
plays and assemblies held on Mumford's stage.
Maintaining the sound apparatus, stage, pro-
jectors, and scheduling of classroom movies
were also the crew's responsibility. ln addi-
tion, they built scenery for the school plays,
then controlled the lighting board and cur-
tain system during performances,

"Hold it right there," advises Mr. Donald Jones to some of the

From the very first.football game of the
season to the last sports event of the year,
Mumford's cheerleaders sparked both school
spirit and team support. Newly coached by
Mr. Stanley Mullin, the nine girl squad was
at all athletic events, rain or shine, to cheer
the Mustangs. Although five of the girls were
new this year, they worked as an experienced
unit and did a thorough job at assemblies as
well as athletic events.

Undefeated and untied in league compe-
tition for the second consecutive season in
1957, Mumford's boys again captured the
Metropolitan West Side Tennis Champion-
ship. As in 1956, they settled for the runner-
up position in the city. The netmen, strong
in both singles and doubles, easily swept past
their opponents. Redford's defeat cinched
the West Side title. The same Redford team
defeated Mumford, however, later in the gi: 'ag

a field of eighteen, Mumford swimmers broke
two existing city records in both the 100 yard

Throughout the course of regular season
competition, the boys' swimming team lost
only a single contest to a powerful Denby
team after four consecutive victories over
U. of D. High, Eastern, Central and Pershing.
The aquamen closed out the season by tying
Southeastern to compile a 4-1-1 record. The

piled the finest record of any boys' swimming

Having the opportunity of working on the
Capri for the past three years has given me a
great deal of satisfaction. It was a great chal-
lenge to plan and record a written and pic-
torial account of the year's activities here at
Mumford. I have attempted to accomplish
this in the way you would want it done.
Of course, this entire project would have
been impossible without the aid of my asso-
ciate editors and my capable stalf, under the
supervision of Mr. Charles Kaufman. I would
also like to thank Mr. jay Bodzin, business
advisor, and his staff, who ably financed this
project. Without their devoted work, the
Capri would have remained no more than an
Not only have we gained valuable experi-
ence in publications, but we have all made
enduring friendships through this common
I am sure that staffs who follow will have
the same rewarding experience we have had.
