K 5 Future Farmers Lead Merry Lives in Seheel Musky members of Future Farmers of America enjoyed varied activities during the year under the leadership of Lindley B. Hoopes. Outstanding events on their sched- ule were bus trips to the Iowa State Fair at Des Moines and the Waterloo Dairy Cattle Congress. The group also sent delegates to the State F. F. A. Convention on May 7 and 8. Several members brought honor to their chapter. Richard Howard received the Corn Growers' Trophy for his achievement in the farm crops class. The F. F. A. Exhi- bition Trophy for winning the highest number of points at the F. F. A. Grain Show went to Floyd Ziegenhorn. Having a litter of ten pigs weighing 2470 pounds at six months enabled Ralph Buster to win the Ton Litter Trophy. Billy Hoben won a pure- bred heifer by winning a judging contest held at Mt. Pleasant, in which seventy-one 4-H and F. F. A. boys competed. The boys also planned entries for the district and state contests. The Muscatine F. F. A. chapter won the Little Four F. F. A. Basketball Tourna- ment held at West Liberty. lt is an annual affair whose participants include Tipton, West Branch, West Liberty, and Muscatine.

The national organization is made up of four degrees, which are the Greenhands, Chapter Farmer, State Farmer, and the American Farmer. Greenhands and the regular F. F. A. members joined together to honor their parents at a special Dad's Night and the F. F. A. annual parents' banquet. By maintaining a checkroom at the Musky basketball games, F. F. A. boys secured some necessary funds to carry on recreational activities. Fun came into the F. F. A. limelight when the members sponsored hayrack rides and a roller skating party and also when they entered teams in the Y. M. C. A. Basketball League tournaments.

The girls in the homemaking department of M. H. S. have their own organization, Future Homemakers of America. The club colors are red and white, and the flower is the red rose. The girls expressed their motto, "Toward New Horizons," in their theme for the first semester-careers. The second semester theme was grooming, posture, and poise. The activities for the year included interesting programs, work, and social events. On one of the programs Miss Bula Downer, dean of girls, talked about the possibilities for a college career. As a service project the F. H. A. girls packed and sent ten boxes of clothing to needy persons in Europe. On the social calendar there were a Christmas party in December and a picnic honoring senior members in May. Miss Evelyn Schultz, Miss Mary Bielefeld, and Mrs. Eleanor Havercamp served as advisers for the organizations activities. Page 68 lf. H. fl.

Anyone in Muscatine High School who wished to help in the library could do so. A desire to be of service and to learn a skill was all that was necessary. Library assistants helped by tak- ing attendance, making out corridor permits, checking books in and out, making lists of overdue books, pasting pockets and 'ADate Duei' slips in new books, mending worn books, caring for newspapers and magazines, treading" the shelves Qthat is, checking to see that the books were in the right order and straightening them to give a neat appearance to the shelvesl, making posters for the book displays, compiling bibliographies for teachers, typing, running errands, and doing hundreds of small jobs that came under the head of "miscellaneous" Every library assistant learned something about cataloging, filing, book selection and display, classifying, salesmanship, and human nature. Some of them studied library science enough so that they will always be Hat home" in any library. There was never any Uhave to" about this work. Mrs. leanne Iahnke, Musky li- brarian, was in charge of the group. Her motto was A'Your studies, first: library work, second." Often a girl would say, Ml need to study this period." She was always free to do so. When she came with HI want to work this period," there was always work for her to do. Page 70 Curia Heqia Has Tea for Former Members Curia Regia meant more fun for Latin students as the second semester Latin stu- dents joined this organization and studied Roman life. Curia Regia is distinguished in that it is the oldest club in M. H. S. and one of the most active. A great deal of planning goes into each meeting in order to make it as worthwhile as possible. Topping the list of activities for Latin club members was a tea given in the social room for all of the upperclassmen who were former members of the club. The club in- vited Mrs. F. L. Galbraith, who talked about a recent trip to Europe and in particular told of the experiences that were of interest to Latin students. For another special pro- gram at the regular meeting in Ianuary, Ann Hoopes told of a recent trip to Florida and showed a number of pictures taken there. The purely social activities included two picnics. The club had the first one in the fall for the second-year students and the second one in the spring for all members. First semester oflicers were Pat Beisner, president: Francene Glatstein, vice-presi- dent: Ann Hoopes, secretary: and Florence Easterday, treasurer. Wielding the gavel for the second semester was Brad Burns. Neil Fitzmorris was vice-president, with IoAnn Bloom as secretary and Phil Houston as treasurer. Miss H.

S. chapter of the National Thespian Dramatic Honor So- ciety found many ways throughout the year of furthering their purpose, 'Ato promote interest in dramatics." Under the direction of Miss Iune Lingo and Miss H. Margaret Kemble, the Thespians were busy sponsoring noon plays, producing the 'Cotton Blossom Follies" Fun Festival in cooperation with the music department, furnishing plays for community entertainment, and entering a play in the state contest. In an exchange of plays with the Iowa City dramatics club, the Muscatine troupe presented the two plays, "Suppressed Desires" and "I'll Eat My Hat." The all-school play was "A Credit to the Family," and the senior class play was "The Divine Flora." The club participated in National Drama Week by giving a radio broadcast in connec- tion with Lincoln's birthday and by attending the West Liberty Play Production Fes- tival. They also heard a talk on puppets by Mrs. Ethel Hanley. The club received honorable mention from the national organization for its activities during Drama Week.

Night sessions and Lady's cold coffee characterized work on the yearbook for members of the AURORAN staff. Chatter and laughter echoed in the halls and made 120 and 122 a test for powers of concentration. But since the deadline for yearbook copy was April first, staff members worked many hours outside of school time. Evening lunches of hamburgers and milk or cokes became a regular thing. Work on the bi-weekly meant a dash to get the copy written, typed, and copyread in order to make a deadline. More than one editor "tore his hair" when copy, all finished, was misplaced or just plain disappeared. Sallie Stark, with Thelma Sorrells as her senior assistant, directed this year's book work. Beverly Borgstadt, assisted by Helen Richman, managed the newspaper publi- cation. Dale Schreurs was business manager of both publications. Gene Mueller was in charge of advertising for the yearbook, and Francene Glatstein for the bi-weekly. Page editors were Marilyn Phelps, newsg Dick Stanley, editorialg Donna O'Brien, feature: and Bob Evans, sports.

Hi-Tri, an important part of the Y. W. C. A. program for girls, was a prominent organization to the sophomore, junior, and senior girls of M. H. S. In this popular organization the purpose is to develop the members in the social and personal fields and to contribute service to the community. The important activities that were a part of the past year's program were collecting food for baskets to be sent to deserving families at Thanksgiving, selling Christmas cards in order to open a youth center in the Y. W. C. A., and sponsoring dances at Fun Nite. The highlight of the Christmas season was the party for under-privileged children. The officers elected for the first semester were Thelma Sorrells, presidentg Iackie Kincaid, vice-president: Lorna Belter, secretary: and Angeline Rock, treasurer. Second semester officers were Eileen Duggan, president: Laura Trout, vice-president: Donna Eichelberger, secretary: and Lucille Behrens, treasurer.

The second semester the Hi-Tri girls tried having both a business and a social meeting each month in order to make a more interesting program, and they found the method quite successful. The business meeting was for planning activities, and the social meetings included hen and date parties. Social highlights for the Hi-Tri girls were picnics and dances. The important event in the fall was a gala picnic at Wild Cat Den state park to which the girls asked dates. The entertainment included hot dogs and strolls along the trails. The group also gathered together around the camp-fire for a song fest. Included in the list of activi- ties for the year were the preparation for a formal and several subsequent postponements of the event. Another festive party was called a 'islumbern party, but the activity in no way corresponded to Webster's definition of the word "slumber" Miss Margaret Proehl, commercial instructor in M. H. S., supervised all organiza- tion activities.

S. the freshman girls have their own club. Amicae, a name which means "girl friends." This organization is a part of the Y. W. C. A. program for high school girls, The girls met the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the Y. W. C. A. The meetings consisted of short business sessions followed by social hours. At these mixers the girls danced to recordings, played ping-pong, and lunched. The Amicae members baked food and sold it at Batterson's department store and also sponsored a Saturday night dance in the Y. W. gym. The funds raised in this way were used to buy clothes for a girl in M. H. S. The officers elected to serve the first semester were Shirley Meisky, president: Marilyn Mason, vice-president: Barbara Lewis, secretary: and Beverly Barko, treasurer. Suzanne Stevens headed the club the second semester, with Beverly Barko, vice-president, Loretta Wyckoff, secretary, and Barbara McGrew, treasurer. Miss Marjorie Owen was the club adviser. Page 78 Hi-Y Ee 5 Mal-ie Floats, Hear Lectures The big disappointment of the year for the members of Hi-Y came with the Hallow- een rains, The boys had prepared a float which they thought was a prize winner, but they didn't get to display their handiwork. However, the club had other activities which were not disappointing. There were several very worthwhile talks on their programs. E. Asthalter told interesting facts about coins and coin collecting. The Reverend T. Baker, rector of Trinity Church, described life in Hawaii. E. A. Palmer, former secre- tary of the Chamber of Commerce, discussed the proposed new county hospital. Other items of interest on the Hi-Y schedule were the play, "I'll Eat My Hat," presented by the dramatics department, and the Hi-Y basketball tournament at Gales- burg, Illinois. The boys lost the second game they played. Officers for the two semesters were Ted Hahn and Earl Cochran, presidents: Earl Cochran and Tom Schultz, vice-presidents: Bob Evans and Loren Goss, secretaries: and Loren Goss and Bob Iones, treasurers.

Every day was 'Aplay day" for the members of the band pounding it out in the band room sixth period under the direction of Max Smith. Cn top of this daily rehearsal there were band group lessons once a week for the purpose of bettering individual tech- nique. Mr. Smiths plans for the band being a top ranking group in the marching field during the football season were curtailed by an exceptionally wet fall. However, strains of peppy marches being played by these musicians in their black and red uniforms were an essential part of every home basketball game. Special programs presented by the band this year included the Christmas and spring concerts. The band also participated in the Little Six Band Festival. Puqe 80 G. H. 5.

Max Smith directed this group and added a solid trumpet to the other eleven instruments. ln addition to Mr. Smith, Don McCullough and Max Collins played in the trumpet section. The saxophone players were Bob lones, Harry Alderman, Don Marine, lim Torrence, and Louie Grimm. The trombonist was Gene Baillie. The rhythm section consisted of lim Gundrum, on bass viol: Ierry Newton, on drums: and Iacque Cook. at the piano. This group provided the music for the annual homecoming dance in Iefferson Gym and for the dances sponsored by the band and chorus after home games.

They had a heavy schedule, but they enjoyed singing. Anyone passing the music room on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday was sure to hear good harmony on pieces ranging from ulune Is Bustin' Out All Over" to the serious 'iAdoramus Te." As a whole group, the chorus made two broadcasts over KWPC. There were numerous other broadcasts, also, when small vocal groups took part. The basketball fans were favored by numbers offered by the chorus between halves at two games. Two of the specialty numbers that were especially liked by the crowds were i'Dry Bones" and "Country Style." The bancl and chorus sponsored two dances jointly in order to raise money for each organization. The chorus used their share to make a trip to other high schools, where they presented special programs. The county festival held in March was another mark on their very busy calendar. Of course, the one event that will linger in the minds of the chorus members for a long time was the Little Six Music Festival, which took place in Ottumwa this year. The chorus also participated in a Palm Sunday program and the Easter sunrise service.

It concerned a radio program and the sponsors wife, who thought she should sing on the program, and the difliculties she caused. The production was quite a task, but working on it was fun for everyone concerned. There were also times of relaxation for this group. Before Christmas vacation the group had a Christmas party. After the presentation of the musical comedy the group had another party, and, naturally, the year wouldnt be com- plete without the chorus picnic. The director this year, Max Collins, did a wonderful job with the chorus. Under his direction, the group gained much knowledge about singing and how to do it right. The officers elected for the year were Melvin Buster, president: Stan Lawrence, vice- president: Lorraine Kelley, secretary: and Marilyn Nesper, treasurer. Two girls' sextettes were organized for the mixed chorus. The first, the Har- monettes, consisted of Lorraine Kelley, Donna Metzger, Barbara Meerdink, Betty Rus- sell, Gloria Van Zyle, and Ioanne Messenger. The pianist was Pat Beisner. The second sextette, the Blue Notes, was composed of Eileen Duggan, Marilyn Nesper, Ianet Sywassink, Kathryn and Carolynn Stumme, and Alice Nichols. Page 83 Girls' Glas Club Sings any Marr Songs Approximately sixty-eight girls met once a week in the music room to blend their voices in harmony this year. To the girls the most appreciated time for their singing was the one period allotted to them from class time. The group, under the direction of Max Collins, vocal instructor in M. H. S., had quite a heavy schedule. They favored the high school students with selections in three assembly programs, participated in a Christmas concert, and took part in a radio pro- gram in which the other music groups participated. In addition to these appearances, the girls sang in a Palm Sunday program and a spring concert. First Row: Carolynn Stumme, Marilyn Nesper, Lorraine Kelley, Barbara Meerdink.

However, there was little doubt of the boys' enjoyment in the activity, once they got started. Max Collins, the director, did much toward mold- ing this group of fifty boys into a smooth working, well balanced choir. A few of the selections chosen for the boys by Mr. Collins, ranging from more serious work to popular numbers, were "Hoodah Dey," a sea chantey arranged by Noble Cain: H0pen the Gates of the Temple," by Mrs. Ioseph F. Knapp: i'Prayer," a Polish melody arranged by Don Maling and i'April Showers," by Lewis Silvers. These were presented to the student body in assemblies and to the general public on the radio and in concerts. Two hours were used each week for this group as a work shop for mixed chorus. The boys worked out their parts in a smaller group and so arrived nearer the goal of perfection. Officers of the club were Melvin Buster, president: Don Myser, vice-president: Iohn Hahn, secretary: and Dave Kelley, treasurer. Page 85 IH. il-l.

Sports is the keynote of all phases of Girls' Athletic Association activity. Along with volleyball, basketball, recreational sports, softball, and some track, G. A. A. tried a bit of touch football, and the results were bumps and bruises for many a day. The calendar of events included a snowball dance in December, which was attended by a large part of the student body, a hobo initiation party in the fall, a gift exchange at Christmas, and a chili supper in March. Spring plans included an overnight trip to Rotary Lodge. This expedition is con- sidered the highlight of an active year. In the spring, also, G. A. A. members were hostesses to girls from Davenport, Iowa City, Burlington, Washington, and Mt. Pleasant, who came to M. H. S. for a day of participation in volleyball, basketball, softball, relays, and track events. Officers for the year were Marilyn Dilley, president: Marilyn Phelps, vice-presidentz Evelyn Sommerdorf, secretary-treasurer: and Rosie Doak, point-keeper. Miss Mary lo Culhane, girls' physical education instructor, was the adviser.

Starting the season with only one returning regular and one other letterman, Coach L. A. Lefty Schnack once again developed a winning ball team that finished the season with a record of 14 wins and 7 defeats. The performance of the team this season was a pleasant surprise to all of the local fans, and the peppy play of the squad was always interesting to watch. The Muskies suffered double defeats at the hands of Ottumwa, Davenport, and Burlington in addition to a single loss to Iowa City. The team seemed to have a foreign court jinx, losing five games played out of town. Kenny Sturms, one of the lettermen from the 1946-47 season, was elected captain of the squad and received a first team all-conference berth, as well as placing second in Muscatine individual scoring. Kenny McCleary, the other returning letterman, led the team in scoring and was awarded a first team forward position on the all-conference squad. Ted Hahn, the third graduating senior from this seasons team, was placed on the second all-conference team at center. On the opposite page are this yearls lettermen.

Third Row: Ed Negus, Bernard Benninger, Ronald Beitz, Walter Rittenhouse, Bob Zwolanek, Bob Hanson. Coming out victors in ten of twenty games was the record compiled by the freshman- sophomore basketball team during the 1947-48 season. The freshman team also won one of the two games played against the Iowa City freshmen. Under the guidance of Coach Bob Hanson, the team provided many thrills in all of their games played as preliminaries to the varsity games. The underclassmen opened the season with a loss to Davenport. They evened the ledger with a win over Keokuk the next week, but then lost three in a row before again hitting the victory trail with wins over Burlington, Washington, and Fort Madison. Iowa City stopped the winning streak momentarily, and a loss to Mt. Pleasant followed. Keokuk and Fairfield were the next victims of the Littlest Muskies, who then lost to Cttumwa and Burlington. The Hansonites chalked up wins over Clinton, Washington, and Fort Madison before falling prey to Davenport's team for the second time. ln the final two games of the season the squad played two overtime games, winning from Mt. Pleasant and dropping the last tilt to Clinton. Boys who completed their final season on the team were Marvin Skolnick, Kenny Riswold, Clifford Freyermuth, and Bernard Benninger, who played at the forward posi- tions, Bob Lick and Walter Rittenhouse, at center, and Tom Iohnson, Dick Powell, Bob Zwolanek, and Ed Negus at the guards. Bob Gosset, lerry Stark, Don Powell, Bob Berry, and Ronald Beitz will all return to form the nucleus of next season's squad.

The B Squad, although losing all of the four games on the schedule, gained much experience and learned many fundamentals and principles that will come in handy in future years. This season the squad was under the direction of Bob Hanson and Tom Bruner. The Reynolds, Illinois, varsity squad beat the team twice, 19-O and 26--7. Wapello downed the Muskies after a hard tussle, 6-O, and the underclassmen lost a real toughie to West Liberty when the Comets scored the winning touchdown and extra point after the final gun had sounded to make the final score 14-13. Some 60 boys reported for the squad at the season's opening, but eligibility cut this number to Z8 at the end of the year. Boys that Coach Hanson feels are bright prospects for the varsity are Gary Gordy, Bill Dietrich, Bob Smith, and Cliff Freyermuth in the backlield, and Bob Lick, Kenny Riswold, Bob Zwolanek, Bob Smalley, Clarence Rock, Bob Helm, Gene Meek, Louis Polsky, and Tom lohnson in the line. Page 93 lVlusl4y Eleven ljeeiures Strung Defense The Musky A Squad piled up a record of two wins and six losses during the 1947 season. Opening the season against the powerful St. Ambrose Knights, the Muskies lost the first game played on the newly built Heinz Field by a score of 12-2. The Purple and Gold opened their defense of the conference title at Burlington and played great ball, but they finally succumbed to the Grayhounds, 13-6. A 7-O loss at Keokuk followed before the squad racked up their first victory of the season, 23-O, at the expense of Washington, Mount Pleasant and Fort Madison added 2-O defeats to the record, and Ottumwa finally eked out a 6-O decision in the mud before the Webermen closed the season with a 6-O triumph over the Fairfield Trojans. Among the individuals receiving honors were Stanley Lawrence, given a berth on the first all-conference team, and Earl Cochran and Bill Iohn- son, placed on the second team. Lawrence also placed on the fifth all-state team. First Row: Richard Bunn, Pete Iohnson, Earl Cochran, Kenny Sturms, Stan Lawrence, Kenneth Iames. Second Row: L. A.

Second Row: lack Wulf, Bob Wulf, Larry Buster, Bob Smith, Irving Rexroth. Third Row: Archie Martin, Vernon Cochran, Bill Greenwald, Don Mills, Richard Howard. Lack of experience proved to be a great disadvantage as the Muscatine High School wrestling squad struggled through a schedule of nine dual meets, winning only one. With only Keith Bloomer and Bill Greenwald returning from last season, Coach Archie Martin's charges found the going rather rough this year. Larry Buster was elected captain of this year's squad. Larry won 4 of his 10 bouts. The most consistent winner for the grapplers was Keith Bloomer, who won 7 of 14 matches. Other letter winners were Bill Greenwald, Don Mills, Harlan Phillips, Mickey Hagermann, and Neil Hyink. The squad opened the season at Burlington, where the Grayhounds plastered a 39-5 defeat on the locals. In the Davenport Invitational, the next meet, Keith Bloomer placed second and Mickey I-Iagermann placed fourth in their respective weight classes. The Davenport B team defeated the Purple and Gold 19-9, as did Maquoketa, by a score of 33-10. The Burlington wrestlers won the second meet of the Season with the Muskies here at home by a 26-16 count. Two consecutive losses to Rock Island followed, the first by a 40-3 count and the second by a score of 201.5-1416. The team won their only meet of the season at Davenport when they tangled with the B team of that city for the second time. The score was 20-18. Losses to Maquoketa and Moline closed the dual season. In the district tournament at Davenport Bill Greenwald placed third in his weight division.
