Because of these War-time restrictions, it was necessary to limit the num- ber of photographs in this volume. In several instances, groups were combined. The Oaks staff wishes also to acknowledge its indebtedness to Mr. Dorman Post for his splendid co-operation after the resignation of Mr. Paul Schulze, our staff photographer for many years. Mr. Schulze left to join the staff of the Michigan Education Journal, with head- quarters in Lansing. W A ,s Foreword June 15, 1945 Dea1'Fellow Students, More than two hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin, testing the lightning with his kite, found in the storm's noisy violence the glim- merings of a Secret which later illuminated the world. Today, in the storm which rages across the whole earth, men are constantly sending up their kites to the new lightning, trying its possibilities and preparing for clearing the skies. Likewise, we Americans are being guided to victory by the Four Freedoms-freedom from want and fear, and freedom of speech and religion. These are the inalienable rights of all men-everywhere. Beyond the war lies the peace. As graduating seniors we of Muskegon Heights High school pledge ourselves to carry these four freedoms onward through this war and into the trying post-war days to follow. With these to guide us we may rest assured that a finer, better world will be ours. Sincerely, Editor-in-chief DEDICATION For the last five years, graduating seniors have been in- fluenced by the friendly and encouraging Ways of Mr. Iames W. Verduin, of the history department. His close daily Contact with the senior class has afforded him an excellent opportunity for knowing the wants and ways of seniors. We graduates sincerely hope the work done with and for us has been that of pleasant recollections for Mr. Verduin, as pleasant as they have been for us. That is Why We believe that this small act of dedicating The Oaks may serve to say, "Thanks, and good-bye, Mr. Verduin."

Elliott, Secretary Lawrence Carl ADMINISTRATORS W. R. Booker Mr. W. R. Booker, superintendent of schools, came to Muskegon Heights from Greenville, af- ter many years of experience as teacher, and administrator. Mr. Booker was highly honored by being named to the Board of Directors of the Michigan Education associationj He also has taken a leading part in the rationing program in this community for which he has been com- plimented by leading public officials here and elsewhere. In short, Mr. Booker is a man whom Muskegon Heights could ill afford to lose. C. F. Bolt Mr. C. F. Bolt, who has been principal here since the day in 1921 when the doors of Mus- kegon Heights High school first opened, is a leader any school would be proud to name as its head. He has shown an intimate understand- ing of the problems of youth. He has helped each one to maintain a high scholarship aver- age, as far as is possible, and best of all, has always set a real example well worth following. Miss Rosemary Hill .Secretary LANGUAGE.

Olah, Parmeter, Stegernan, Lundberg, Workman, Privacky, Grant. Wilma France "Another year, another job well done" can truly be said about our Student Council, a group comprised of class officers of the Sopho- more, Iunior, and Senior classes, and headed by three students elected by the Student body. This democratic form of choosing officers was inaugurated in 1940. Officers of the Student Council during 1942- 43, are: President, Elizabeth Alfultis: Vice- President, Bud Olah: Secretary, Ioe Hegedus. The purpose of this organization is to main- tain more opportunities for co-operation be- tween the students and faculty in promoting in- terest and school spirit, and to establish a greater measure of student control in school affairs. The functions of this group consist main- ly of discussing school problems and approv- ing assemblies and school dances. Council meetings are open to all who wish to attend. No member of the faculty has a seat on the council. Principal C. F. Bolt is the ad- viser. This year our council became a member of the Tri-City Council, which is headed by a representative from our school, Elizabeth Al- fultis. 16 3' .1 SENIORS 1+ ,r ff 1" 'D ,I O 17 CLASS OF 1943 Back RowfP1umhoif, Brash, Thomas.

So far as The Oaks was able to determine, Mr. Tenny is the only parent of a graduating senior who himself is a graduate of Muskegon Heights High school. Our high schools opened its doors to students in the fall of 1921. Mr. C. F. Bolt was principal then as he is today. Several teachers on the faculty now were also in service at that time or soon after, including Mr. C. F. Koehn, Mr. Roy A. Peterman, Miss Nellie M. Iohnson, Miss Iulia A. Royse. Dale Tenny was cz graduate of the Class of 1922. The quotation under his picture in The Oaks of 1922 was, humorously enough: "The sharks on the sea have nothing on me." His activities included membership on the Oaks. "annual board," Senior Class Play, and. "Blundering Billy." But today, the second generation has come- into its own. Muskegon Heights High school takes its place among other institutions with traditions and memories oi the past. CLASS PROPHECY Really, I was so excited upon coming into Muskegon Heights! Since I had been busy in Holly- wood I didn't give much time to my old friends individually. Being away from the Heights for so many years, I expected them all to have changed a great deal. The huge buildings seemed to protect the streets and the lights and traffic illuminated the night. As we drew near the new station on Sanford and Broadway I could hear bands playing and loud shouting. What a welcome! As I stepped on to the platfonn I was presented with a bouquet of flowers and the key to the city by Mayor Donald Van Bogelen. Welcoming speeches were given by the Heights Bank president, Leon Thomas, and Lorraine Tierman, representing the Heights Woman's Club. After the speeches, I got in the mayor's car and was escorted by motorcyclists Robert Schapka and Donald Yorkson to the hotel. I arrived at the Hotel Wilson owned by Herman Wilson, an old classmate. I had a short visit with Herm and he told me many of our old school chums were his employees. I asked to see their names and some that I saw were Manager, Marvin Plumhoff: Tele- phone Operator, Opheredes Reidg Bell-hop, Russell Richardson: Chambermaids, Garnet Iune Scales and Ianice Lupien: Custodian, Robert Luth, and many other familiar names. I rested for a few hours and then dressed for the theater. In two hours the premiere would start, determining my career. After dressing I went down to the lobby where Mayor Van Bogelen met me and we left for the Tawney theater, owned by Glen. After a few minutes we arrived. Door man Russell Mitchell made clear the way. Pressmen Silvas, Seppala, and Stewart were busy with their flash bulbs. Seated in our box I noticed several familiar faces in the audience below. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Parmelee: and the former Arlene Peabody, with her husband and children. The houselights dimmed and the curtain rose with a home talent show preceding the Premiere. Those appearing were Betty Walker with her Novelty Act: Shirley Murray and Harvey Nedeau "Iitterbuging": Emil Michka, singing "The Road to Mandalay." The last contestants were Katherine Shunk, Lorraine Smith, Ioyce Smith and Marion Ruiter. After the show we went to the Neilson Night Club, owned by Carl. The waiter, Charles Pearman, showed us to our table. He said he had waited on Madame Chiang Kai-Shek only the day before. A cigarette girl approached whom I learned was Harriet Risk. She sold us some cigarettes, and another waitress, Beverly Norton, brought us dinner. After awhile a new orchestra took the stand and began to play. The Mayor told me the leader was Alan Marsh. Some of the musicians whom I recognized were Andrew Lusskey, Frank McCormick, and Ernest Martyniuk. The floor show began with a blues singer, lulia Simoncik, and a fast tap by Genevieve Sniff. A tango, executed by Suz- anne Rosenberg and Marvin Rosie, was the final act. We left the club and, deciding to walk a while, we saw a woman selling popcom balls. The young lady turned out to be Valzora Van Beukering. Walking through the park we saw a man standing on a soap-box talking to a small group of people. He was saying good things and trying to teach people to do the right thing,-but only a few cared to listen. The Mayor said the speaker was Richard Powers. Tired of walking, the mayor hailed a taxi driven by Iohn Sabel and brought me to the hotel. Thanking the mayor for a wonderful evening I finally went to bed. - I was awakened in the morning by a newspaper man whom I remembered was Wallace May- nard. I went to the dining room for breakfast, and as I got off the elevator I literally bumped into Professor Dean Masterson, now an instructor of the Theory of Statistics at Michigan State College. After breakfast I decided to go shopping. As I walked along Broadway I noticed a tall building with a sign, Lundquist Ladies' Shop, owned by none other than Dorothy herself. I walked until I came to a big theater called Taylor Theater. I went inside and met Marjorie, the owner, who showed me around. On the stage a play was being rehearsed and I learned the leading roles were played by Virginia Panneter and Mary Matovic, with Phillip Nellis and Charles Pettet supporting. 52 CLASS PROPHECY As I left the theater I ran into a newspaper reporter and a printer. It was Bruce Ploughman and Iames Pelfresne. I walked awhile and saw a streamlined dress shop called "McDowell Models" owned by Marilyn. I decided to visit their fashion show. Included in the performance were sport clothes modeled by Brooksie McClure, Virginia McGregor, and Helen Mclntosh: evening clothes by Helen Mansko, Florence Morrell, and Barbara Swartout. Day frocks modeled by Iacquelin Nessen and Lorraine Nill. At noon I left the shop and looked for a lunch room. I spotted a place called "Marchido Man- sions," proprietor, Iune. As I entered, the head waiter Clifford Milles showed me to a table. A wait- ress, Barbara Strand, took my order. Gazing around I recognized some fonner acquaintances among them were the former Elaine Olson and Margaret Pavlich dining with two men who, I gath- ered, were their husbands, lack Miller and Raymond Morrow. While eating my lunch a palm reader came to my table. As soon as I heard her speak I knew she was Marcelyn Reek. After she left my table a gypsy orchestra began to play. They looked familiar so I asked the waiter who they were. He told me the leader was Carl Nielson and some of the men were Arthur Swiatek and Mike Szucs. A couple dressed in Spanish clothes began to dance. It was Eugene Thomas and Ellen Stefula. I left the Mansion and decided to visit the High School. lentered the office and saw an elderly lady typing. When she looked up, I knew at once she was RoseMary Hill. I asked her if Mr. Bolt was the principal yet. She told me he had retired but he came to school every day just for fun. In his place was Claude Vanderwall. The 3:15 bell rang and many teachers came into the office. Those I recognized were, Wilma Shmalzer, Agnes Smith and Carma Mingle. I left the school shortly and returned to my hotel. The mayor telephoned me and said a banquet was being held in my honor tonight, sponsored by the Board of Trade in Muskegon Heights. The mayor called for me at 6:15 and we rode to Shohasky Hall, appropriated by Irene, where the banquet was being held. Bernerd Yerkie, the toast-master gave a short welcoming speech. Dinner was served with the aid of three hostesses: Genevieve Visscher, Shirley Warnock, Mary Werderits. After the meal, several timely speeches were given by Ioyce Williams, Editor of Heights Record, Congresswomen Betty Timmer and Shirley Shively, and Fire Chief Richard Thomas. Old acquaint- ances who greeted me were: Dorothy Smith, Donna Stahl, Virginia Piche, and Doran Wilson. We got back to the hotel quite early because I would have a long and tiresome trip ahead of me tomorrow. Miss Reid, telephone operator, awoke me at 7:30, I dressed and went down to breakfast. As I entered the dining room I saw a group of familiar faces whom I had wondered about ever since my arrival in the Heights. They were Pauline Prudick and Virginia Worthing. After breakfast I went to make sure my name was checked off the register. l'm still in the habit of saving my extra pennies, even though the war is over. All packed and ready for my departure I called a cab and left for the station. A farewell party was waiting for me when I arrived. A group from the church presented me with flowers. They were: Clarice Workman, Marilyn Westover, Marietta Wheaton and Irene Sturm. Others there to see me off included Ioyce Smith, Eleanor Shutterlee, Francis Werschern, Carmen Williams, and Corinne Peterson. Promptly at 9:20 the Train pulled out. The conductor, Ernest Vukits, took my ticket and I settled down for my long trip. I was sleeping soundly when I was interrupted by a loud voice calling: "Magazines, candy, chewing gum!" It was Iohnny Miller, an old friend of mine. Tired of sitting, I strolled to the lounge. While I was at my table I felt a tap on rny shoulder and I recognized the face to be Betty Ruiter, an old Iournalism classmate and upon talking with her I learned she was now a news correspondent for the New York Times. She had been a special WAAC and WAVE correspondent during the second world war. Other old friends I met on my trip back to Hollywood were Maxine Rayment, who is a private stenographer, and Gloria Sturgis, artist model for Madame Arlene Sietsema a model art creator. Arriving in Hollywood I was met at the station by Producer George Vanderwest and leading star, Barbara Tenny. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

'55 56 UNDERGRADS ANL X 1 Nu CLASS OF 1944 We Iuniors have reached one more step in attaining our high school goal. Next year We shall ascend to the highest step, as Worthy seniors. During the past year We chose to lead our class: lack Weisenberger, president, Kathryn Parmeter, vice-president: Polly Workman, secretary: Clark Grant, treasurer, and Frank Privacky, sergeant-at-arms. W. E. Mur- ray and Paul Schulze Were chosen as advisers. We presented our annual class dance, .the "Iunior Ianuary Iute Iive,' on Ianuary 15, with Mary Ianet Booth and Clark Grant acting as co- chairmen. Within the last month of school we gave the seniors a great send off by acting as hosts to a party in their honor. We hope that next year We may attain our goal as successfully as the class of 1943 has. 58 I UNIORS Row Row Row Row Row Row Row Row h.. w Row l-Aker, C. Anderson, G. Anderson, L. Anderson, Apostolos.

Under a new forensic ruling, teams were composed of two debaters instead ofthe customary three. The nation- al high school debate question for the 1942-1943 year was "Resolved: That a Federal World Gov- ernment Should Be Established." We tied for first-place district honors with Grand Rapids Union High, State champions of last year. Muskegon Senior High and Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills were our other district rivals. Our varsity aflinnative team was composed of Betty Timmer and Willard Larsen, while Harriet Risk and Charles Pearman comprised our negative team. Being district champions, we were awarded the University of Michigan placque for proficiency in debate. At Lansing we entered Harriet and Willard in the State elimination contest against Lansing Eastern where we were defeated by a two-to-one decision. This was the second consecutive year we were defeated by one vote by the school which later entered the State finals as Eastem did. Several other debaters who did exceptionally well in helping the varsity team were: Barbara Doremire, Doris Workman, Patricia McKean, Harvey Nedeau, Harvey Schultz, and Dick Hedges. To Miss Iulia Hoyse and Mr. Eugene Gillaspy, veteran debate coaches, much credit is due for their splendid co-operation and work in aiding the debaters with both case and delivery. 71 CLUBS CLUBS DRAMATICS CLUB LIBRARY CLUB FRENCH CLUB BOOSTER CLUB 73 The Imperishable Values of Life - We today are a people living in a world of unrest. We have faith in a more joyful and happy future. We hope that not all of the great works of art in Europe will be destroyed, but there are other values derived from the fine arts of the world which we know nothing can ever destroy. In the music, painting, and literature of the world there is recorded all of the beauty of living, all of the spiritual qualities which, though unseen and sometimes unappreci- ated, are of inestimable value to human beings. "Man does not," as it has often been said, "live by bread alone." Man looks ever forward to the things which do not die. Emerson tells us man always is "becoming," that his soul is looking ever onward and forward. In art, we catch a permanent record of the beauty which is so fleeting. It is true, times change, and with the time changes come new forms of art. Witness Glenn Miller, Harry Iames, or Irving Berlin: then look backward over Bach, Beethoven, and Strauss. Even if this foregoing infer- ence is unfair, it is enough to show that time and artists and art do change. Through the arts, artists stir the very hearts and souls of men to better things. Art speaks to us individually, through the centuries,-more eloquently and deeply than the things of the moment-to give us courage and inspiration and immense satisfaction. Art is life at its best. 74 FINE ARTS J 4212-'HX BAND 76 ORCHESTRA K . 3 Lg i I l l .1 by Mary Carlson "De da doe da"-yes, you're right. The soft notes you hear drifting from the auditorium are made by none other than the high school orchestra. Last fall the orchestra was directed by A. M. Courtright, that is, until Mr. H. E. Weick, me- chanical drawing instructor, entered the Field Artillery, U. S. Army, making it necessary for Mr. Courtright to take over mechanical draw- ing classes during certain hours. Mr. Paul Schulze, band director, succeeded Mr. Courtright, and later left to take a position in Lansing. Mr. Gayle Churchill accepted the music position left open by the resignation of Mr. Schulze and has already found a niche in life here at Heights High. The orchestra, in true traditional style, played for the annual senior and junior plays. As this section of the Oaks goes to press, the orchestra was thinking about a spring concert. VOCAL MUSIC l Once again, it's the war! Owing to the shortage of boys, our mixed chorus was not as complete this year as it has been in former years. Near the end of the second semester, Mr. Paul Schulze, director, left Muskegon Heights and his position was filled by Mr. Gayle Churchill, who has proved himself to be a fine musician and a very popular teacher. Thirty-six girls were enrolled in Glee Club at the beginning of the term. Both Mixed Chorus and Glee Club groups perform at assemblies. It is the purpose of those now enrolled to enlist the help of other interested students in an ef- fort to build up both groups for next year. A new group known as the Girls' Octet was organized this year and was a great success. Comprised of a selected number of excellent voices, the octet sang at various woman's club, church, and educational functions in the community. Rubee Vaughn, Betty Mills, Agnes Smith, Shirley Perm, Harriet Risk, Barbara Brown, Marjorie Nelson, Katherine Shunk com- pose the octet. Shirley Batchelder is ac- companist.

PHYSICAL TRAINING Courtesy of The Muskegon Chronicle We live today in a world in which strength is important. Strength of body is as important, as it always has been, as strength of mind and spirit. The three factors in success are inseparable and one. In February of this year, a new physical education program was adopted by the Board of Education. The purpose of the program is to build up the senior boys physically so they will be ready and able to take their places Wherever the United States government may need them in the months to come. The program is not required only in Muskegon I-Ieightsp it is nation-wide and required of all boys 17 years or over, or a senior. Five points credit are allowed. Mr. Oscar E. Iohnson, director of athletics, is in charge of instruction in the course. Boys receive training in calisthenics which will be of lasting benefit. They learn to cooperate and function as a group. Sports such as football, basketball, and other games are used to bring out the competitive, fighting spirit of the boys as well. If we are to win this War all of us will have to work a lot harder, fight a lot harder, than we have been in the habit of doing up to this point. Physical train- ing will help these boys, and all of us, to achieve a sound, foundation for future operations. 85 Captain Swiatek First Semester f VARSITY BASKETBALL by Dean, Nlasterson Coach Oscar E. Iohnson's Muskegon Heights Tigers proved themselves a power in Southwest Conference bas- ketball during the 1942-43 cage race when they emerged victorious in seven of ten contests to share first place honors in the league. After dropping their first two con- ference starts to Kalamazoo and Muskegon respectively, they came back to win six straight. After one week of practice the Tigers eliminated Mus- kegon's Big Reds from the Regionals in a bitterly con- tested struggle. Then the Iohnsonians outclassed the 'Woodenshoes of Holland to take the Regional Class A championship. Due to transportation problems there was no state tournment held. Our Tigers were also well represented on the All- Conterence team, Hilliard starring as the league's most valuable center and Lyle Currie as All-Conference guard. Team work and cooperation went hand in hand as the smooth working Tiger machine rolled past its rivals one by one.

The initial game of the 1943 season, played against Grand Haven high school, there, was a disappointing loss attributed, for the most part, to errors. The score was 11 to 10. Despite this setback, the team showed much potential strength as this section of the Oaks was going to press, and the boys were all looking forward to a successful season. The 1942 flast year'sD nine was very success- ful, as the scores will indicate. The squad had many underclassmen in key positions, boys who eventually "came through". Mike Reqec- zi, now in the service of his country, and Iack Weisenburger, carried the burden of mound duty, and won eight out of nine victories. 1942 Season Results Victories Holland, 4 - 0: St. Mary's, 10 - 3: St. Ioseph, 12 - 5: Grand Haven, 1 - 0: Holland, 5 - 2: Grand Haven, 4A- 0: St. Mary's, 13 - 10: Hol- land Christian, 1 - 0: St. Joseph, 8 - 3.

' Games won and lost by pitchers: Regeczi, won 4, lost 2: Weisenburger, won 4, lost one: Wood, won none, lost one: Gomery, won one, lost none. TRACK Coach David R. McKenzie's Tiger track team, up to this Writing, has shown possibility of go- ing iar in later season contests like the area meet at Holland. As a group, the boys were Willing and anxious to succeed. They kept op- ponents of other teams fighting until the last race was won. The Tigers Won from Holland on Phillips field one afternoon in a steady drizzle oi rain. The score was 53 to 5015. The squad lost to Muskegon and Holland in a triangular meet, although the competition between Holland and the Tigers again was extremely close. Boys who gave indication of becoming stand- outs Were: Pete Dendrinos, big shot-putter, who averages around 45 feet on every attempt: Lyle Currie, speedy miler who makes the round- trip in about five minutes or less: Poulin, Hegedus, Schapka, and Haines. Perhaps after The Oaks was "put to bed," many of the other track boys won a place for themselves on the list of stars. TENNIS . ik-our-nr by Bob Dorsch Last year's tennis team was highly success- ful, Winning twice in two engagements against Muskegon and splitting even With Holland and Grand Haven. Much credit should be given all of the boys Who completed in Conference play during the season, for tennis is a gruelling game calling tor stamina, alertness, and agility. It is in no sense an "easy" game as some novices might suppose. Individual stars of the 1942 team included Oland Dahl, who was state finalist in boys' singles, and Iames Hansen and lack Lipman who Won state titles in doubles for the Western half of Michigan. Lettermen returning are George Emig, Iarnes Morton, Harry Hiltner, and Bob Bidney. Prospects for the 1943 season looked excellent when the Oaks Went to press, the team al- ready having conquered Muskegon and tied Grand Haven. The team lost to Holland, how- ever. Inclement weather necessitated holding matches on three successive afternoons. Dahl did not compete this year. Mr. H. A. Kruizenga is coach. 91 GIRLS' ATHLETICS WINNING TEAM Top Row-E. Watkins, D.

MEN IN SERVICE 93 Bill Langlois Captain VARSITY FOOTBALL by Bruce Ploughman The 1942 Tigers did not Win the Southwestern Conference championship, although they had an exceptionally good year otherwise. Captain Bill Langlois, Who is now in the service of Uncle Sam, led our Fighting Tigers to the position of second place in the conference. At Hackley Stadium, home of the Big Reds, the Tigers before a record crowd were defeated in the annual contest by a strong, powerful gridiron machine. Heights fans received a new thrill at Phillips Field this year due to the recent installing of lights. This was the first year that games were played under lights at Phillips Field and it proved to be a very successful season as the Tigers emerged victorious in all their home games. Several members of the Tiger team Who earned recognition on the All-Conference and All-State teams Were Pete Dendrino, Marvin Hilliard and Richard Chesney. The citations were as follows: Pete Dendrino All-Conference first team tackle and All-State honorable mention, tackle: Marvin Hilliard, All-Con- ference second team end and All-State third team end: Richard Chesney, All-Conference second team guard, and All-State honorable mention, guard. 1943 VARSITY Top Row-Whelpley, Staple, Poulin, Howell, Crane, Wiesenburger, VanDyke, Wood.
