Shirley Sulzberger Con floorl and Donna Tobias found that popcorn added much to their
homework. Esther Archer replaced an unruly hat on a dashing young man. Harry Alder-
man demonstrated one of the easiest ways to amuse oneself Qsolitairel. lt was off to school
for Kathleen Coder as soon as she bundled herself up warmly. Ted Hahn made a neces-
sary adjustment in preparation for a happy evening. Below, Pat Honts found the funnies
amusingp but Kay Stumme found her brother Pauls efforts at shaving even more so. ln
the cafeteria Elizabeth Evans, lohn Healey, and Kenny Sturms Crightl even laughed over
their daily task of doing the dishes for two or three hundred Muslcies.
Marcia Wagner Cupper leftl gave her finger-
nails that professional look with a second
coat. At the organ were Ella Mae Huff Clettb,
Sherbie Phillips, anol leanie Hakes having a
little pre-clevotions fun. Mary Ellen Dillon
was at the receiving encl of a very funny
phone conversation. Dick Bunn may not
look especially happy sewing on his football
letter, but Winning it was probably part of
one of his happiest high school clays. Har-

Little Musl-ry Squad Uriheateri un Home Court
An all-veteran quintet coached by Lefty Schnack this year gave Muscatine
High School a seasonal record of I9 wins in 24 contests. The team had for its first
six men Iettermen from last year's squad. The Muskies started the season in a very
impressive manner by defeating Iowa City, the defending state champs, 41-20. In the
very next game the Purple and Gold disposed of the present state champs, Daven-
port, by a score of '34-30. The team this year had all its bad luck out of town, suffer-
ing every one of the five losses on a foreign floor. The only losses in the regular
season were to Clinton, Ottumwa, Davenport, and Webster City. The Muskies beat
every team which had beaten them with the exception of Webster City, a team that
was scheduled only once on the Christmas trip to the North. In conference play the
team won I3 while losing only I. This record gave the Muskies a 'lie for the Little
Six crown with Ottumwa. ln tournament play the team won the district played at
Muscatine by defeating University I-ligh of Iowa City and Lyons of Clinton, but they
lost to Davenport, the new state champs, in the sub-state.
The six boys above were the nucleus of the team during the 1946-47 season. Top row Cleft
to rightlz Gene Paetz, senior guard and captain of the squad, was given first team honors
on the all-conference team and honorable mention on l.D.P.A. and Register all-state teams.
lim Proffitt, senior forward, was placed on the second all-conference team and given hon-
orable mention on the l.D.P.A. squad. Tom Bloom, senior guard, was the spot player of
this year's squad. Bottom row: Kenneth McCleary, junior forward, is the only starter re-
turning next year. Willis Valett, senior guard, was a first team all-conference player and
was given second team l.D.P.A. and fifth team Register all-state honors. Sonny Phillips,
senior center, was one of the hardest fighters on the sguad.

Fresh-Sephs Play in Pteerqanized Conference
With Coach Bob Hanson as the guiding hand, the B Squad finished the 1946-47
season with a record of 9 wins in 22 games. The team participated in the reorgan-
ized Little Six Freshman-Sophomore Conference and gained an even split in the
14 games played as preliminaries to the A Squad conference battles. The B Squad
started slowly, losing four of their first five games. With the return of Bill Sturms and
DeWayne Mclntyre, former A Squad members, at the end of the first half of the
schedule, they closed fast and finished the season with five victories in the last
Among the sophomores who will be greatly missed are Ierry Boulund, lerry
Grady, Bay Edgington, lohn Hahn, Harlan Phillips, Bill lohnson, and Captain
Tommy Thomas. These boys will probably furnish valuable A Squad material
next year. Freshmen who showed promise were Gary Gordy, George Hahn, and
Robert Lick. The team played in the finals of the county tournament, but they were
defeated by West Liberty's varsity team, 19-18. The freshmen played two games
with lowa City, winning at Iowa City in a thrilling overtime battle, 33-31.

Hansuirs Underclassmen Gain TWU Victuries
The B Squad, under the direction of Bob Hanson and Tom Bruner, came through
a tough schedule with a record of two wins and four losses plus a wealth of experi-
ence and knowledge that will prove valuable in future years. The team was
beaten by Wapello, Iowa City, St. Ambrose, and Reynolds, Illinois, while gaining
decisions from Reynolds and Wapello. The team had a very satisfactory season,
considering the fact that much of the squad was composed of freshmen. Boys who
showed some promise for the A Squad next year were Andy Hibbert, Harry Lewis,
Bob Iones, and Iohn Hahn in the line, along with George Hahn, Gary Gordy, and
Iim Marshall in the backfield. The outlook for next season is very bright with so
much of the fine material that was shown this year returning.

Might Wehermen Rapture First Grid Title
Co-Champs of the Little Six! This was the A Squad's claim to fame for the l946
season. Under the direction of Skip Weber and Lefty Schnack, the team was victor
in six of the eight games played. The only defeat was in the first game of the season
at the hands of the St. Ambrose eleven, and the only other mar on the record was a
tie with Burlington in the second encounter in the schedule. From this game to the
last of the season the Muskies proved themselves to be unbeatable, although they
were pushed to the limit against Washington, Zl-l4, and Mount Pleasant, 7-2, and
climaxed this drive with a top-flight performance at Ottumwa to win the title. Mus-
kies will long remember the Ottumwa thriller because it brought home to Muscatine
its first football crown.

p-and-lfuminq Greeiihands Uriderstud F.F.A.'s
This busy bunch of boys hustled around in an effort to earn points toward their
advancement to the higher rank of the Future Farmers of America. Like his older
brothers, the F. F. A. members, every good Cfreenhand hopes to merit the "State of
Iowa Farmer" degree someday. The F. F. A. boys held regular meetings twice each
month and stressed cooperative activities among the members. In fact, the club's
many social and recreational events stimulated a more friendly relationship. Their
familiar blue corduroy jackets were prevalent in M. H. S. halls, and nine times out
of ten the wearers of these famed jackets also wore broad grins which illustrated
the boys' spirit of friendliness. Lindley B. Hoopes, F. F. A. sponsor, deserves loads
of credit for the fine work he has done to fulfill the club's aim: "To develop the farm
boy into a stronger rural citizen."

football squad, a style show and tea for Hi-Tri mothers, and an open house two
times a month were all activities sponsored by the Hi-Tri girls. The club, which
boasted one hundred members, held its meetings at the Y. W. C. A. on the first and
third Tuesdays of the month. Besides the regular business discussed at these meet-
ings, the girls also had devotional programs, group singing, panel discussions, and
guest speakers. During the second semester a series of good grooming talks was
presented to the girls. Club visitors were Miss Mary Culhane, physical education
instructor, who gave a talk on "Good Posture," and Bradford Burns, who presented
his humorous declamation, "The Widow's Mites."

Curia lleqia Haul-is as uslsies' Uldest Club
Curia Regia's meaning, the royal division, seems a very fitting name for this
club. The oldest one at M. H. S., it was organized in l9ll. The members, Musky
Latin students, enjoyed every third Wednesday when they could skip sixth period
study hall to attend the meetings. l-lighlights of the year included the December
initiation and special meeting and the May picnic at Wild Cat Den. Regular busi-
ness meetings were seldom skipped, however, for besides interesting programs
there were refreshments to make things even more interesting.
First semester officers included Pat Zeug, presidentp Andy l-libbert, vice-presi-
dentp Donna Eichelberger, secretary, and Phyllis Mclieown, treasurer. Second
semester officers were Andy I-libbert, president, Marilyn Eichenauer, vice-presi-
dentg Betty Russell, secretary, and Marcia Fuller, treasurer. Miss I-letty Margaret

Eurnpleted Emp Brings Happy Ba 5 for Staff
The Auroran office was the scene of constant hustle and bustle. Cries such as
"Where's my dummy?" "ls that copy typed yet?" and "Are both typewriters being
used?" could be heard by anyone passing by the Auroran office during the sixth
period or after school. The yearbook caused many anxious moments during the
year. All copy had to be at the printers' by April first, and there were many times
when everyone connected with the publication of the book held his breath, crossed
his fingers, and hoped the deadline could be met. Members from the last year's
journalism class edited the bi-weekly, assisted by members of this year's journalism
loan Sywassink, with Mary Ann lohnson as senior assistant, managed the
yearbook publication, and Sallie Stark managed the newspaper staff. Barbara
Meerdink and Thelma Sorrells were business managers, and lohn Folsom super-
vised ad sales.

The Neighbors House
Our neighbor's is an oldish house
. . . a wide, white house
set on the hill
where shades are rarely drawn
. . . so that the lights
and the dawns
and shadows climb up on the pines
and hide in the upstairs halls.
Theirs is a quiet house
. . . over and above
the laughing and
you can hear . . .
the crackling of the fires
on many hearths
and the purring of big kettles
on the stove . . .
Theirs is a hungry house
where apple bowls
and trenchers filled
with nuts -
and plates oi cheese and bread
and meat and milk
and opened pickle jars
are everywhere in evidence . .
And even in the bedrooms
. . . little bags of private sweets
are hidden under the pillows
out of sight . . .
in case . . . one should wake hungry
in the night.
In homes where good food and good liv-
ing are the rule, the name of H. l. Heinz
Company and the flavor of Heinz 57 Varie-
ties are well known and much admired.
