fsf' THE CLASS OF l9ll2 of Muskegon Heighks Highschool -.-,Q Muskegon Heights, Michigan l Presenh i 2 H K Immortal patriots, rise once more! Defend your rights, defend your shore. Firm, united let us be, Rallying 'round our libertyg As a band of brothers joined, Peace and safety shall we ind. from Hail, Columbia FOREWORD Our country is at War. This grim realization is in the hearts and minds of all Americans today. With war and its far-reaching implications the watchword for all our thoughts and deeds, it seems only fitting and proper that the theme of our 1942 yearbook should be Courage, Loyalty, Strength, and True Americanism. As graduating seniors, our turn has come to hold high the torch and to carry it proudly as it has been carried by Muskegon Heights High school alumni of the past. We, the youth of America, have been given fhe opportunity of preserving that heritage given us by our fathers. We shall not fail. As true Americans We accept the challenge, we pledge ourselves to defend our native shores. In short, We shall always "Keep 'Em Flying." WWW DEDICATION Yesterday they filled our halls and classrooms, and life for them was carefree and gay. Today they take their places on the far-flung battlefields of free- dom. One day, boys: the next, Defenders of Democ- racy and all that We hold dear. We trust that the ideals they learned here at high school, the fighting spirit with which they were im- bued, and the abilities they acquired will stand them all in good stead when and if that critical mo- ment arrives. To these boys from Muskegon Heights High school who have gone forth into one of the several branches of the armed services of our nation, we respectfully and with heart-felt sincerity dedicate this 1942 vol- ume of The Oaks. God rest you, happy gentlemen, Who laid your good lives down, Who took the khaki and the gun Instead of cap and gown. God bring you to a fairer place Than even Oxford town. from The Spires of Oxford L , -3,1 L, if ,N ,x ' V ' , .:,, f Lfv' f y,-x Zl v fli ijf U ,R if X 5 ass , . A' 1 vs- ff 4 , 'YP 23, 51 52 wx . .

Hundreds of students under direction of! six faculty advisers write and edit, typewrite, sell advertising and sub- scriptions, make up an print, trim and mount photographs for lay- outs, read proof, and interview. Months are consumed in the effort and, although the product may be less than perfect, staff members themselves have learned the Spirit of Cooperation. the foundation stone of American education. ln Chnef ""' X lfwsxsk zmk E lim 136 -9- CONTENTS Administration .,.... ........ 1 1 Faculty ,............ ........ 1 7 Seniors ................. ........ 2 6 Undergraduates ............... ........ 6 9 Classrooms and Clubs ................ ........ 7 9 Music, Drama, and Literature ...... ......., 8 7 Athletics ....,.,,............................. ........ 9 9 A Glance at our Defenders ........ .......... l l7 Senior Directory ........ .......... l 25 Advertising ........ .......... l 31 ...10.. ADMINISTRATION SUPERINTENDENT W. R. BOOKER Mr. W. R. Booker was appointed to the office of Superintendent of Schools in Mus- kegon Heights in 1928. He came here from Greenville, Michigan, where he had filled a similar position. His experience in the teaching profession has been broad and deep, including teaching in the English de- partment at Kalamazoo college. During his 14 years in Muskegon Heights. Mr. Booker has guided public education in this community with a steady hand. He has capably filled not only the office of super- intendent but also that of business manager. Since 1938, he has also executed all those duties pertaining to the Supervisor of Ele- mentary Education. How Well our superintendent has executed his many responsibilities is obvious to those in high places in Michigan educational circles. To the thousands of parents and children in this community, his work in good times and in times of economic depression has kept the school doors open. Muskegon Heights schools have not only weathered the storms, but have improved under the ordeal. Today our school system is acclaimed by the Office of Public Instruction at Lansing and by the University of Michigan as one of the best in the state. Muskegon Heights students grow and develop and take their places alongside any students other schools can produce. Mr. Booker has always been active in state educational affairs and his interest in this important phase of a superintendent's Work has proved of inestimable value to Muskegon Heights. Without it, our schools might have suffered much more than other cities during periods of strain and crisis. His unceasing labors to secure our share of state financial aid have been remarkable, and his ability to conserve funds to best advantage has made his Work here outstanding. No burden has ever been too great for him to assume in the interests of education. in Mus- kegon Heights. M12- BOARD OF EDUCATION Our Board of Education has a membership of long stand- ing, with the exception of the newest trustee, Iustice Bernard E. Cook who this year was appointed to fill out the unexpired term of Trustee Edward Moore. Mr. Moore, who relinquished his place on the Board because of the press of other duties, ren- dered many years of valuable service to our community. He is to be commended for his interest in our schools and particular- ly in our high school of which he was a graduate and an ex-star on the football team. Not many students are acquainted with Board members personally. However, all of us do sincerely appreciate their work and their interest in us. They have given us equal oppor- tunities with boys and girls of other cities. It is now up to us to prove to these civic-minded men that we have benefited by their efforts. We seniors take this opportunity to extend to Dr. C. A. Lund, president, and all other members, our deepest grati- tude. We hope we shall be able to make ourselves worthy of their help. so so r so Secretary President Treasurer ARTHUR T. BOOTH DR. CARL A. LUND CARL N. DAMM HERBERT F. REID ORA V. COBB BERNARD E. COOK HENRY S. ELLIOTT ..13- Mr C. F. Bolt, Principal Rosemary Hill, Secretary and Clerk PRINCIPAL C. F. BOLT Any man that succeeds in his chosen vocation does so through a combination of qualities. It is not enough to have executive ability: neither is it enough to be entirely efficient in any one particular field. It requires a skillful blending of tact, kindness, and understanding, coupled with perseverance. the ability to make quick and sound decisions, and the will-power to see that such decisions are carried out. C. F. Bolt, our princi- 211, has these qualities. During the performance of his daily work, it sometimes be- comes necessary for him to reprove a student for his actions or to offer constructive criticism. The constant return of former stu- dents to our school, however, attests to the way in which Mr. Bolt conducts this phase of his work. 114.. IN CHARGE OF ATTENDANCE There is no doubt as to the identity of the gentleman on this page. It is Mr. M. E. Rudd, head ot attendance. He is one per- son who always hears the truth. the whole truth. and nothing but the truth. He also is the faculty Manager of Athletics. and in- structor oi students in Commercial Law. Besides these activities. he also instructs boys in a Morse Code class to help in Civilian Defense. Even though he keeps us in our places, he is well known and liked by all. V MR. M. E. BUDD Director on State Board of Education since 1936. Member of Executive Committee, Michigan Education Association, since 1940. T -15- STUDENT COUNCIL The government of our school is represented by a group of students known as the Student Council. Its members consist of the class officers of the sophomore, iunior, and senior class. who act as delegates for the student body. The Council officers are now elected from the school at large' and are not officers of any class. This more democratic plan for electing the officers was favored many years before its adoption in this school in 1940. Officers of the Student Council during 1941-42 are: President-Nancy Culver, Vice-president -Barbara Tenny, Secretary-Hazel Iuhas. Reports of the Council "doings" are put in the school bulletin for all students and teachers unfamiliar with its work, to read. The regular meetings of the Council are open to any students who wish to attend. Many of the Council's routine duties consist of approving dates for schools dances and assemblies. The maiority of school problems are discussed at each meeting. In 1933, at the first Student Council meeting, Mr. Bolt explained the purpose of this organ- ization as being: to provide greater opportunity for co-operation between the students and fac- ulty in promoting interest and school spirit, and to afford occasion for a greater measure of student control in school affairs. No faculty member has a seat on the Council. C. F. Bolt, principal is the adviser. - 16- FACULTY Teaching ls An Art "Teaching is not merely a life work, a profession, an occupation . . . Teaching is an art,- an art so great and difficult to master thorough ly that a man can spend a long life at it without realizing much more than his limitations and his mistakes, and his distance from the ideal." In those few words a really great teacher, Dr. William Lyon Phelps, professor emeritus of English language and literature at Yale university, defines teaching. And for him, at least, teaching means much more than earning one's living. "I do not know," he wrote, "that I could make entirely clear to an outsider the pleasure I have in teaching. I had rather earn my living by teaching than in any other way." Professor Phelps is a man who has made an unforgettable impression upon the generation of students who have passed through his classroom. He is one of the few teachers who ever reach that place of high public acclaim. The nature of a teacher's work usually limits itself to the classroom rather than the public eye. The work of many good teachers often goes unnoticed. But this much is clear: one must love teaching or give it up, for it is not just an occupation or a way of life. Its goals are boundless and its possibilities for good are infinite. In these days of chaos, the school remains, together with the church, a refuge of courage and of hope: and the teacher, it seems to us, is the heart of the school. The youth of today is the leader of tornorrow,and the teacher is a molder of youth. .. 18 .... Q NWS f W W Cf' QYW A X su ff' 5 'ff , oaao i cur IAMES V. COBB, A. B., M. A.

Valparaiso University Mechanical Drawing CUSTODIANS Our custodians are among the most popular members of this institution. For example, there's Mr. Albert Cruse, a veteran of 14 years of service in our high school. He is a man of long experience in industry, having been a millwright by trade before coming here. He was once a carpenter also. Many of the boys would be surprised, perhaps, to know that in his younger days he used to hurl a "mean ball" over the batter's box in league baseball in his home town. Seventy years old, Mr. Cruse has about made up his mind it's time to knock off steady work and rest a bit. All we have to say is, "We shall miss you, Mr. Cruse. Come back often and visit us." One feminine face is in the line of the faithful workers on the maintenance front. Her name is Mrs. Caroline Christiansen. Quiet efficiency best describes her activities here, but all who know her recognize her generous and kindly nature. Our engineer seems to have a very difficult and strenuous job. How would you like to be on the job seven days a week, getting up often in the middle of the night, firing the furnace for the students on a winter's morning? "Bill" Phillips tWil1iam, by "rights"J is as steady as an lglargn clock. Did you know he built our athletic field and that it is named "Phillips Field" after im. Then there's Frank. Frank Scott is the youngest of them all but now that he is "papa" at home, he probably feels like a veteran, too. Frank is popular with all of the students and is a conscientious worker. -23- .I Y i Y Q A. -25- 4 ,, , William Seyferth President CLASS OF 1942 Senior Grads: Ours is the treasure of a dream iuliilled. This month an unforgettable chapter in our life has come to a close and a new one begins. Some oi us may go on to pursue a lite work while others will enter the service oi ou.r country. But wherever we are, whatever we do, let us vow to meet lile with a smile and the courage that is typical oi every American. Already we have won the first triumph of success, a triumph marked by gay moments and by trying times when some goal seemed iust beyond our grasp. Cherish these moments. They will be our inspiration for the conquest of vast horizons which await us.

Mixer The honor of being elected the outstanding girl of the senior class was awarded to Lois Mixer this year. The honor was rightly awarded, for Lois has been an outstanding example of American young womanhood through- out her four years of high school. With one exception, Lois has received all A's on her cards. She has taken an active interest in class affairs and has been a class officer and member of the student council several times. She was recently elected "Most Popular Girl in the Senior Class." Liked by all, she was also president of the Booster Club for the past year. Lois is also very interested in sports and won the Tennis Championship last year. All in all, Lois is an all-round girl, with many friends and truly deserving of the title: "Outstanding Girl of the Senior Class." Lois lives with her parents, Dr. and Mrs. C. T. Mixer, at 844 Sanford Street. This contest is sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution each year. The winner from each school goes to a district contest where lectures and other meetings are held and a representative is chosen to repre- sent the state. , . 4 .ta-4 .3423- .'2yQ'g::.' -1. -,' It Y -53- PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS May we be true for there are those who trust usf May we be pure for there are those who carey May we be strong for there is much to sufferg 1 May we be brave for there is much to dare. FIGHT F OR THE HIGHEST GOOD by William Seyferth We come to these graduation exercises as products of prosperity. True, we have experienced the throes of depres- sion and unemployment but even this would be considered prosperity in many countries. And now we are at war. This brief period of life seems to have made us calloused to ideals. We seem to take life as a matter-of-fact proposition. Will war change this? Could this be a partial cause of: the difficulty in which we now find ourselves? What are we fighting for? Perhaps none of us really knows but there is a story of a young English flyer which very nearly expresses my ideas. This young cadet was not much older than many of us. He was a student at Oxford when the war broke out. He lived complacently. even as we do. feeling safe and secure in his sheltered life. Adven- ture prompted him to ioin the RJ-LF. He looked for thrill and glamour in fighting. As he was flying into combat, he asked for nothing more than the opportunity to kill or to be killed. Fighting was merely for personal thrill.-merely for developing his individuality and self-reliance. His thoughts did not include others. Then one day as he watched with interest a victim of his barrage go plummeting through space in flames. suddenly his plane was rocked by explosions: flames leaped up at him, too, as he tried frantically to free himself. He fell head- long toward the sea. a charred and crippled piece of humanity. He was burned beyond recognition. In the long months spent in a hospital bed, of operation after operation. of plastic surgery and other miracles of medical science. he began to think,-but still no change in his philosophy. Then during his convalescence as he wandered aimlessly among London's famous pubs, one night bombs dropped dangerously close to him leaving him shaken but unscath ed. An air-raid warden asked his aid in freeing victims from a near-by building, a Woman and a babe. There they lay, the child in the mother's arms, dead. He quietly removed the child. When the mother realized her child was gone she began to weep, with a piteous and constant sobbing. The young flyer was standing near the woman. She raised her eyes and looked at him. "Thank you, sir." she said. She was obviously going to die. And then looking at the young flyer, she said, "I see they got you, too." Her interest in him in the hour of her death sounded some responsive chord in the flyer. Her death had been uniust, a sin against mankind,-he knew that it wasn't a crime. It was evil itself. Men were not made to kill and to be killed. He now realized that it is impossible to look only to oneself. to take from lite and not to give. He knew now that no price was too dear to pay to achieve this victory. Fellow-classmates, will it take the sound of screeching bombs to make us realize fighting? Must we experience the pain and intense sufferings which accompany the spirit which would fight for others? Can we not answer the cynic who questions the of patriotism and love? I stand before you today, knowing fully that two years may find me fighting in the of many of you who may be with me then. I challenge you, boys to believe that our cause that it is evil itself that we are wounds of war to enter into a charity of man, by some show front lines. I look into the faces is iust. I challenge you, girls to believe with us. We are in a period which is making demands on us. But it merely demands that we substitute loyalty.. charity, and inspiration which comes from service, for our present complacency and cynicism. I challenge you to a re- turn to the noble and the good. 1 59 1 Co-Valedictorian A CHALLENGE by Lillian Scott "These are the times which try men's souls." How true even today are these words spoken so long ago by Thomas Paine. A crisis, such as we are passing through now, has a peculiar advantage: it brings things to light which might otherwise have lain forever undis- covered. Such times as these "sift out the hidden thoughts of man, and hold them up in pub- lic to the world." But, how have we equipped ourselves for these times? Do we feel that we have now gained all the education that is necessary? Have we in high school assimilated all the know- ledge we need? Is it possible that we have now reached a position where we can better apply and interpret the lessons of life? The least we can say is that we but stand on the threshold oi a new life. The world today is in need of capable leaders even more than ever before, and these leaders should not only be well-educated, broadminded men and women, but should also be of staunch character. But iust as much as the world needs leaders, it also needs followers who will cooperate and help make these leaders a success. We must be able to take up our re- sponsibility as prospective followers, and thus fulfill the requirements of good citizens. Two members of our class have been chosen "the most likely to succeed." Presumably these two were chosen because of certain qualities which man has recognized through the ages as essential to success-name-ly, personality, initiative, thoroughness. service, knowledge, and personal achievement. Can it be that we have not deemed these foundations of success important enough to cultivate them likewise? Absolute perfection is never attained by human beings, but an untiring quest of excellence will never do harm, and much that is useful may be gained. "Let as then be up and doing With a heart for any fate, Still achieving, still pursuingj Learn to labor and to wait." -59- Co - Valedictorian LESSONS by Arthur LeRonx When an important occasion such as our graduation presents itself one cannot help won- dering iust what effect it will have in our later lives and of what value it has been to us thus far. Commencement time is a time for reflection and a time for looking forward. For many of us, the four years spent in high school may have seemed extremely long and difficult: for others, it has seemed but a brief span, indeed, and enioyable in a large measure. Yes, all of us have our own thoughts on the subiect, but this fact remains: to all of us have been presented equal opportunities and to all have been given the same essential lessons and ideals, the value of which we shall come to realize more and more as we move along the course of later life. By lessons we do not mean only the studies which we have pursued, but these together with all those little lessons which may not have been contained in the texts. Little lessons learned by experience, lessons we have absorbed, perhaps unconsciously, are some day going to prove of more lasting value than we today ever dream. For many of these lessons we are indebted to our teachers: for others, we owe' much to our principal and friend, whose sound advice has led us over many an obstacle in our path. Our teachers, after all, have proved to be not merely teachers but our advisers, our guides, and our friends. As the realization of all these things becomes more apparent to us, some of us will ex- perience a deep feeling of regret at having to leave these halls and classrooms: but regret is not a thing to be long indulged in. It is for us now to take our places in life and work so that others may benefit as we have-. In the troubled times in which we now find ourselves, the need for everyone to do his part is urgent. We have a two-fold responsibility: we must find our place in the world of affairs and of men, and at the same time help to make this world a safe and sane world for other men to live in. The lessons we have learned will give us the courage and the ability to carry on. The training we have received has made, and will keep us, good citizens. Let us leave Muskegon Heights High school with courage in our hearts and this thought in our minds: Up the tiresome Hill of Learning, Slill the magic voice alluring Day by day we labor slill, Calls us onward from the past, Wlzile our hearts are ever yearning "Leave, Oh leave whatls not enrluringg For the goal beyond the Hill. Cling alone to what will last." But the Hill recedes beyond us '!What will last?" we give back, wondering. Ere we come within the sight, '75 it Scienre? Letters? Art?" And the mountain towers o'er us, "Nol,' The answer iroines, returning, We must scale its dizzy height. " 'Tis faith! Hope! Lessons of the Hearl."' by Harold Thornasnm .. 61 .. Arthur LeRoux .....

Here we met Charles Bird, popular orchestra leader and his talented young singer, Alis Pappan. We were introduced to Paul Felber, featured drummer, and David Dodds, hot trumpet player. We promised to come back later to see floor show. Our luncheon was brought by beautiful, charming Aloha Hoy, whom we later found out to be Victoria Czerniak. The restaurant was owned by Clarence Estlick, who owned a chai.n fof restaurants?l on the islands. After lunching, we boarded a sight seeing bus, driven by Stanley Chumney. As we rolled along under the gently swaying palm trees, we heard music drifting lazily up from the beach. The bus stopped and we got out. While walking along the sun-kissed, white sand, we saw Betty Barding, Mary Iane Keith, and Beverly Haralson lolling in the tropical sun. Continuing our walk, we came to a beautiful cool spot beneath the palm trees, under which sat Robert Knapp, strumming his guitar. Dancing to his music were a group of beautiful Hawaiian girls, Olga Minarick, Margaret Carey, Lorraine Chavalia, Mildred Valuck, Stella Marchuk, Caroline Stefanits, Evelyn Kirkpatrick, Janet Yaple, Mildred Chludil and Margaret Iohnson. We in- quired, as best we could, about the dance. lt seems they were worshipping the Goddess of beauty, Shirley Schow. In the midst of this gay entertainment we heard cries of "Hot Dog! Get your hot dog here!" and along came Don Derby, who had given up an eventful life as chief of police to become a carefree inhabitant of the island. The sun was so hot, we decided a swim would cool us off. We rented suits from Marvin Geeting who was in charge of the bath house. We changed and ran across the hot sand into the water. Diving headlong, we collided with a huge fish so we decided it was better to get a nice tan and watch the other bathers. Lying around on the beach we saw several of our former classmates. Among them were Kathleen LaNore, who we knew had become sec- retary to the- President's wife, formerly Elinor Iewell: Mariorie Meeusen, secretary to the Vice- President of the WKBZ networks, Leslie Cole, was also on a vacation. From our position on the beach, we could see six surf-board riders in the distance. As they drew nearer we recognized them to be Beverly Wherry, Orlea Shafer, Merle Meyers, Gene- vieve Ross, Phyllis Duff and Portia Cox. They had come to see the life-guards Eugene Brothers and Robert Iohnson. It was cooling a little, so we got ready to leave. We checked in our suits and rode back to town. On the bus, we met Privates Richard Moore, Albert Biornstrom and Andrew Dabrowski, also going back to town. When we got back to our ship we immediately dropped to sleep and had pleasant dreams. Iune 3, l942 Longitude: 19 Latitude: 41 Nautical miles covered: 360 ..54.. The day started out sunless and cool, a fine day to finish our sight seeing. Most of the crew had gone ashore, except a small party consisting of Vernon Cole, Ray Lynn, William Pawneshing, Kenneth Stibitz. Aloysius Vandak, lack Robarge, and I. We went ashore at 9 bells and remained all day untli 12 midnight. We had a very enioyable evening. First, we had dinner at a little out-of-the-way cafe owned by Evelyn Bement. Then we looked for a good movie and decided upon "Lover. Come Back To Me," starring five-tirne academy award winner, Sophia M. Grabiec, with Frank Patrick as her leading man. Others in the cast were Helen Iandris, Florence Pierson, Leon Osterhart, Cleo Savage, Audrey Zappia and Donald Pitcher. It was so sad we cried all through the picture. The usher, Franklin Siplon, supplied us all with handkerchiefs. When the newsreel was flashed on we weren't a bit surprised to see Mike Regeczi presented a trophy for being captain of the National Conference League of Football. It was presented by the president of the League, Steve Koziak and vice- presidents, Frank Niemczak and Iohn Spoelhof. The candidates for the presidency of the U. S. were also shown. They were, Arnold VanNunen. representing the Democratic party, Douglas McComb, Republican candidate and Beverly Olson, candidate for the Women's World Party. We left the theater and went to cafe Owala to see the floor show. We got there iust in time for the magician act by Harry Kuharevicz. He had an astonishing act. He made Alberta Roberts and Beulah Werley appear from nowhere. What an act! Iune 4, 1942 Latitude: 19 Longitude: 42 Nautical miles covered: 360 Breakfasted at a cafe operated by Susie Melicharek and Evelyn McFall. While we were eating, Walter Lager came through his daily route selling papers. I purchased one and upon turning to the society page, we saw a familiar face. It was Lois Mixer, Representative of the U. S., who was arriving by plane that monting. After breakfast I went down to the airport. The plane had iust landed. The radio announcer, lack Lipman, interviewed Miss Mixer and Howard Branch, mayor, presented her with the key to the city. A large crowd had gathered and Police Chief Iarnes Hanson, had a hard time keep- ing them back. As the crowd gathered and departed I recognized Patricia Schultz, now a great American Artist, Florence Ochs, who is now the owner and proud operator of a Beauty Salon, and Doris Lundberg, foreign war correspondent, who had iust returned from France. I returned to the Hotel for luncheon before starting on a visit to one of the neighboring islands with a group of friends. While waiting, I decided to send a cablegram to the island for our hotel rooms. Arthur Thompson took my message and wished us an enjoyable trip. When I returned. the rest of the group was engaged in conversation with the pilot of our plane, Glenn Stonex, who had given up painting as a career to become a flier. Donald Porter was co-pilot. After boarding the plane, we were assisted to our seats by Clavera Towner, the hostess. We discovered that making the trip with us were, Dr. Shirley Simpson, now the President's personal physician, Bernice VanderWall, novelist and author of "Duties of an Editor." Our plane landed and we left the airport. We took a taxi to the middle of town. Our driver turned out to be Bill Bradford who was married to Ioy Ford. We chatted with him for about an hour and he told us that he was planning on a visit from Victor Ruzicka, now commander-in-chief of the U.S. Army. We were all hungry, so we stopped at a restaurant. Charlotte Wisch greeted us and told us she had been in business on the island for quite some time. On her staff were Art Pelky, chef: Ienny Cherep. cashier: Shirley Diesel, Lillian Firl, and Geraldine Gustafson, waitresses. While we were eating an official party came in. They sat right across from us. We at once recognized Melvin Hilliard. Irwin Iohnson and their wives, formerly Henrietta Kooiman and Maxine Sherwood. We completely covered the island in two days and had a most pleasant time. We went back to our ship and that night when the full moon hung low over the murmuring sea, we quietly glided out of the peaceful harbor, leaving behind us a land of palm trees, white sand and gentle music and taking along with us only pleasant memories and a dream of success. ...65-.

Four victories out of four debates on the national question, "Resolved: that every able-bodied male citizen of th United States shall receive one year of compulsory military training before attaining the present draft age," entitled the Heights team to go on through several debates to the district finals where they were defeated by Grand Rapids Union, the state final's contestant. Throughout the season both the negative and affirm- ative sides were taken with many debaters participating. Those who appeared in one or more league debates were: Harriet Stegeman, Willard Larsen, Harriet Risk, Mariorie Meeusen, Veronica Dryovage, Betty Timmer, and Harvey Nede-au. Several other students. who did not appear in league debates, did much to help round out the cases for the season. They were: Arthur Pelky, Lois Mixer, Charles Pearman, Bill Seyferth, and Barbara Donnier. With this successful season as an inspiration and several experienced debaters coming back next year. Mr. Eugene Gillaspy and Miss Iulia Royse look for even greater achievement during the coming season. 183... BOOSTER CLUB Stcxunch supporters! GIRL RESERVES "Force life squarely."

There probably has never lived a single soul whose inner being has not, at some time. been stirred by music. the drama, or by a literary gem in some form or other. Perhaps it has been the peal of chimes from a church steeple: perhaps the quick, smooth melody of a time-beating swing band 5 or the s l o W , deliberate notes of the scale from the instrument of a hesitant practicer as his p r o u d mother, or father, looks on. In the field of drama and literature and art, the facts are the same. Men have been moved to do great deeds, to think great thoughts, to feel a surge Within them of finer things. Men have changed from bad to good, from good to better men because of some stray bit of good literature, let us say from the Bible, or some choice lines from a contemporary Writer. The sight of a beautiful picture, or admiration of an actor of ability has provided the World with enjoyment and inspiration from time immemorial. .And novv, with the entire world in conflict, a mighty effort will be made which may almost obliterate these things all of us know to be the finer things of life. Let us not allovv them to be ground into the maelstrom. Let us cherish them as things precious and im- mortal. Let us use them to build a better world. mgg..

It is only fitting that cr yearbook such as ours should also record the thoughts that go with these. In the next few pages you may recognize the work of your fellow students. You who are alumni will appreciate the selections a great deal. we hope, because they will remind you of your own high school days and similar thoughts similarly expressed. Those of you who are away in the army or navy encampments will be happy for this contact with the "old familiar" home front. The selections chosen are creative in every sense of the word. They are original products of the minds of our students. Some of the pieces reflect one slant on life: others express per- haps a very different philosophy. None may be on that high plane defined by the master poets and writers of the ages, but all have that touch of effort which after all. is the very essence of true education. Included in this section of the annual is drama. Here. too. we find creative effort at its best. Our actors in both comedies presented this year created roles and interpretations which will make both plays live in the memories of all who saw them enacted. "All the world." wrote the mighty Shakespeare, "is a stage, and all the men and women merely players." Let us all learn to play our parts well. .. 93 ..

MY CHANT No father's heart, no mother's tears Have I to ache or shed for my shame. No brother's love, no lover's ears Have I on which to rest my blame. A devil's joy, unceasing pain. A war lord's bloody hand to hold, No brutal deed too rash or cruel For my cold hand of death. My name is written on the scroll. My book is strong, yet weak and small. A mighty wealth-a gate man's toll- Are taken for a nation's fall. I live on blood, I lust for flesh, I care not for the layman's woe: I start by gred, by hate's snarled mesh. I stand-white crosses row on row- Por I am War. -jack Miller -Mildred Chludil THE LADDER OF LIFE The ladder of life is a hard one to climb. For it is coverd with dust and lime- The dust of dead bodies. the lime of their bones. The air is filled with the shrieks and groans. Oi poor unfortunates, dying ever, Happiness gone, and all the clever Wiles. and strength of the wicked men Pulling us down again and again. But we will succeed on this ladder of life, Never minding the cries or watching the strife: lust climbing upward, rung by rung. To where the happiness stars are hung. Learning man, as day by day We keep on climbing the upward way. The past will seem like very bad dreams When at last we reach that land of sunbeams. -Frances Saunders THE MIGHTY GARDENER OF EARTH AND SKY The Mighty Gardener of Earth and Sky. Looked down one day on a passerby. Drooped, feeble, shabby, and lame: But it was not shame that deeply lined the feeble one's face. Only the lack of food, mercy, and grace. "Poor foolish man," I heard Him say. "Your life is spent in such idle ways." From weary tiredness the man lifted his head. And then lowered it again with that awful dread of Leaving his worldly joys behind. Informing the Gardener, "Not this time." The sun was sinking low and fast, And the Gardener stood gazing where the man had passed. The memory of this one is fading and will die. Could you too. be a passerby? -Ann Boles .-96... MUSIC I can give but little music to the ear But in my heart it overtlows, I might listen to lite tor years But music I may ne'er compose. Still, the one is rich who hears The murmuring notes ot every country brook: And he is rich who with it bears And sees what cannot look. Sweetly tingling of the spine, It clears the heart and makes the mind: Gentle, soothing, music is so kind: All this, and more is mine. -Mildred Chludil "GHOSTS" ALONG THE SHORE I was strolling by the seashore When a wind came off the sea: When a cold and bitter wind Came oii the sea. I did not heed its calling For time was getting late. So in the darkness of the night I hastened fast my gait. While stumbling through the darkness When the sea was roaring loud, I heard it strangely calling I heard it shrill and loud. A voice upon the midnight air Challenged me with hate. So on my very knees I vowed That I would wrestle tate. Alone in utter darkness With the demon on shore: I fought a fight. and mighty :tight That he trouble me no more In my soul I fought him, This thing that we call death. And in his arms he crushed me 'Till out flew my breath. Now my soul is with the ghost Whose fate death did implore, To join the phantom of the wind Whose fate dates back from YOIS. My ghost upon the midnight air Will trod these very shores. So take my warning and beware Of my ghost along the shore. -Harold Gowll DEATH AND A FLOWER Poor flower! I am sad to see your drooping head, And sad I am to sense your dying breath Placed here in memory of the newly dead. The tools! they seek to assuage death with death. -Sophia Gmbiec .. 97 - TROUBLE BOYS There's trouble tonight in Europe, There's trouble in the air, There in the heart of evil men lies cause to burden bear. boys There's trouble tonight in Europe, boys- But never do dispare.

A beauty of assurance! Of God and His love! An assurance I clung to. Why? For peace! Peace, before death could take our dove. -jane Ann Israel ODE ON A SUMMER NIGHT O. Summer night! You have the essence of imported fragrance in your hair, as You move with the inborn grace of a refined lady of culture: You breathe soft sighs and whispers to young lovers: cloak the realities of day with your robe of darkness, peace, contentment: You give refuge to the wretched and to those seeking solace: You leave, bidding adieu to the flowers with your WGIID. moist kiss of dew. O, Summer night! Why must you depart? You -Shirley Simpson FOR LOVE OF SUN Into the dark solitude of cx forest, A shaft of sunlight found itself a path. Awakening the sleeping mosses. It made the drooping flowers shine once more in glory, Cpening their arms to greet the dawn of day, And unwound their silken flosses. And then as quickly as it had brought joy, It vanished to seek the dark anew, And let the flowers shed their glosses. -Mildred Chludil HARMONY If thoughts are lived in music, Unscathed by ache or pain. Then hearts will leap in rhapsody, Whene'er they hear the rain. MY SPEECHLESS MOMENTS Have you ever opened your mouth to speak and heard a dead silence? Awful feeling, isn't it?

' awrwt , ' ss S Eeee PHYSICAL EDUCATION ln war time or in times of peace, we of Muskegon Heights High school have always had an athletic program which is open to all who wish to participate. In this respect it is similar in many ways to the program in operation at most of the colleges of the state and in particular at the University of Michigan, where the slogan long has been: "Athletics for All." With America now engaged in a great war, an all-out war for our very existence as a dem- ocratic nation, the value of athletics and good health in general cannot be over-emphasized. Good physical condition is not only an individual ideal but it has now become a national goal. Good condition is an aid to good health and vigor, good morale, and efficiency of endeavor in whatever one undertakes. Sports such as football, together with the rest of the games played interscholastically, help to bring out the spirit of competition and success in all who engage in them. A willingness to "mix it" is developed, and a spirit of poise, self-control, give and take, and alertness. Today the trend seems to be in the direction of an increased emphasis upon setting-up exercises and body building for all students. The military way is the way of the Swiss exercises, Swedish exercises, or whatever you care to call it: but we can all look forward to more of it in the next few years. War is not fun: it is work. Each of us must look upon bodily health as a duty, not just a pleasure. -100- FACULTY ATHLETIC LEADERS IST LT. NORMAN D. VAUGHAN Ist Lt. Norman D.

The score was 13 to 0. Muskegon Heights fans followed the Tigers in full array and demonstrated the good old Tiger spirit on the main streets of that staid Dutch settlement. Thomberry was the "hero", scoring once while Brongersma added another. Walt Kelly stopped a Dutch threat on the goal line. Tigers ........ ....... 1 2 Kalamazoo .............................. 0 Oct. 18, the Tigers played Kalamazoo Central on Phillips field in what some dopesters termed an "upset," If Kalamazoo was an outstanding team, they forgot to tell the Tigers about it. The score was 12 to 0. Muskegon Heights out- pounded and out-maneuvered the Centralites, pil- ing up ten first downs to their one. Chuck Gomery, Homan, Regeczi, and team-mates took the ball on a march down the field and Thom- 1 berry sped through for a first touchdown. Broth- ers set up the second touchdown by intercepting ci pass and lack Wiesenberger, on two tries, went over. The Heights line played great ball all aftemoon.

The Tigers were on the offensive throughout the game. Mike Reg- eczi, left half, was outstanding, his off-tackle smashes proving devastating to the opposition. Brongersma and Wiesenberger also scored. Grand Haven threatened but once.

A heavy down- pour failed to dampen the spirits of players or fans and the locals fought the invaders until the bark of the gun. The Tigers were on the long end of the score. Thomberry played the best game of his career. to date, being instrumental in setting up both touchdowns and scoring one himself.

Before 10,000 or more rabid fans who packed the bleachers at historic Hackley field, and with the sun high in the heavens and the green turf green beneath, the Muskegon Heights boys showed the world a football game that has gone down in the annals of local ball as one of the greatest of all time. In the first half, the two teams presented a stone wall defense although Muskegon threat- ened in the initial period. It was the big second half that brought the fans to their feet, and set them down again. Muskegon scored on a pass from Paul Bard to Ray Carlson, but the Reds failed to convert the point. In the last three minutes of play, Spencer Ketchum, left-handed half- back for the Tigers, flicked a pass to Thornberry, ace end, who nabbed the oval in the end zone for a score. Gomery kicked the point winning the game before a very quiet, astonished crowd. Gomery's punting and Bard's passing were features of the aftemoon. -104- STATE AND Bill Thomberry-All-State First Team End All-Conference First Team Bob Iohnson-All-Conference First Team Guard Bill Campsmith-All-Conference Second End Team Mike Regeczi-All-Conference Second Team Halfback Charles Gomery-All-Conference Honorable Quarter Mention Joe Tomorsky-All-Conference-Special Tackle Mention CONFERENCE HONORS LETTER WINNERS Players who won an MH are: LeRoux.

Little Tigers ..,,............................ 0 Little Reds ................................ 12 Nov. 15, an historic day, saw the Muskegon Little Reds win over the Little Tigers, 12 to 0. but not without a battle. The game was played on Phillips field because of inches of slimy mud which covered the central portion of Hackley field at Muskegon, a gridiron reserve for the clash be- tween the varsities in the afternoon. The morn- ing game in Muskegon Heights was well attended. The Reds proved to be the only team against which Coach McKenzie's Tigers could not score. Muskegon's eleven was tall, rangy, and heavy. 1 ln the foreground: Eugene Brothers. Left to right: Regeczi, Hilliard, Thornberry, Campsmith, Young, Parmalee, Swiatek, Coach Iohnson. VARSITY BASKETBALL SEASON OF 1941-42 by Harold Thomasma The Muskegon Heights Tigers, although they did not finish at the top of the Southwestern Conference standings, nevertheless beat every Conference team at least once, except Holland which was forced into an overtime to win in the final contest. The Tigers won five and lost five during the regular season. But we went into the Regional Toumament, after two weeks of practice, and defeated the first opponent, Grand Rapids Creston, 51-24. Then came Lansing Eastem. The Tigers were turned back 38-27, in a bitter battle, thus ending the 1941-42 court season. The first five boys who played the majority of hours on the floor, are: forwards, Capt. Mike Regeczi and Art Swiatek: Marvin Hilliard, center: Eugene Brothers and Bill Thornberry, guards. These boys went through a tough season, defeating Benton Harbor, Conference champs, on their own floor. A11 in all, the "iron man five" deserve a lot of credit. The boys as a whole were not the largest boys in the Conference but they played all of the teams even or better when they were "on." Coach Oscar Iohnson has a right to be proud of his varsity five which, we think, was one of the best, "most fightingest" teams ever developed. And that's what counts. --108-- VARSITY BASKETBALL SEASON'S SCORES OPPONENTS Big Rapids Traverse City Grand Haven Kalamazoo Muskegon Holland Benton Harbor Grand Haven Kalamazoo Muskegon Holland Benton Harbor TIGERS 31 REGIONAL TOURNAMENT Grand Rapids Creston 24 ,.,..,.,........ 51 Lansing Eastern 38 ................ 27 VARSITY MH WINNERS Mike Regeczi Marvin Hilliard Art Swiatek Eugene Brothers William Thornberry William Campsmih Robert Kohlbeck Gerald Young Tom Parmalee Leon Thomas Clarence Nipke VARSITY R-l WINNERS Fred White Harsld Thomasma Richard Fethke Manager's Letter Lcuis Mogdis Back Row: Coach O.

The Tigers had a number of veterans returning irom last yecrr's, team to iorm a nucleus. The number of boys turning out this year was less than in former years. but there were many promising young players. Among them were Henry Olah and lack Weisenburger, both sophomores. who are regular on the first team. The Tigers should develop powerful teams in the next iew years if the younger boys come along as expected.

The squad defeated Holland in the first meet by a score of 682 to 352. In the second meet. the Tigers were turned back by a score of 752 to 282. Next came the meet with Shelby and Muskegon Heights took them into camp after a hard battle by a score of 56 to 48. The final contest was a triangular meet with Muskegon and Ottawa Hills of Grand Rapids as the opponents. Ottawa Hills came out on top. Muskegon proved the runner-up, and the Tigers were third. So far during the 1942 season, as this volume goes to press. the Tigers have won two and lost one, a good season to date. The scores are as follows: Holland 492: Heights 522: Mus- kegon 72, Heights 32: Hart 26, Heights 78. The Tigers went to Mt. Pleasant in the Central Michigan Relays, and came back with the mile relay trophy safely tucked away. The members of the relay were: Brothers, lohnson. Den- drinos. and Haines. -112- TENNIS The season of 1941 was one oi the most successful the Muskegon Heights High school team ever enioyed. The Tigers netrnen dropped only two out oi nine Conference matches. winning two matches each from Benton Harbor. Grand Haven. and Holland. and taking the only match played with Muskegon. The Tigers lost their only two matches of the season to Kalamazoo by close margins. thus narrowly missing the Conference title for the second straight year and holding undisputed second place in that league. The Muskegon Heights boys lost the Regional tourney to Muskegon by a fraction oi a point. but sent singles :tinalist Iohn Minarovic and doubles finalists Oland Dahl and Spencer Ketchum to the State Toumament at Ann Arbor. Mr. H. A. Kruizenga's prospects for the season oi 1942 were a question mark when The Oaks went to press, although the boys looked "hot" in preliminary trials. Coach Kruizenga has tour lettermen back in Dahl, Kramer. Lipman. and Kohlbeck. These "racketeers" will be ex- pected to carry the brunt of the battles. "MH" winners in 1941 include: Dahl. lesson. Ketchum. Kohlbeck. Kramer. Lindland. Lip- man. Minarovic. Risk. Rutter. -113- 'N 4 1 L GOLF SEASON OF 1941 Although the Muskegon Heights golf team of 1941 was not so successful from the point of wins and losses as those of previous years. we did have a good season. The Tigers placed third in the Southwestern Conference tournament at Benton Harbor with Kalamazoo taking the title and Muskegon holding the runner-up spot. We lost to Battle Creek by two strokes in the Regional tournament at Battle Creek and thus were unable to enter the Michigan State Finals tour- nament. A ' 1942 Prospects for this season. as this volume of The Oaks goes to press. are fairly good.
