ST Season in Review BIG RAPIDS-The Tigers started out the season in great style, trouncing Big Rapids 48 to O. lack Weisen- burger, backed up by a charging line, led the scoring with four touch- downs. SAGINAW - The next team to fall to the dynamic Tigers was Saginaw. The Valley eleven succumbed by a score of 20 to O. lt was a revenge game played on Phillips field. HOLLAND-ln their first away-from- home game the Tigers easily out- classed the Dutchmen 26 to 6. Big Pete Dendrinos went to town that day-with a little help of course from 10 other "guys" FOBDSON-A tricky Fordson eleven came to Phillips field and defeated the Tigers for the first time 14 to 13. Fordson later Went on to an unde- feated season. Iust a hair's breadth of luck would have won the game for the Tigers. Of all points scored against Pordson all season, the Tigers made half. lt wasn't defeat. We just lost 14 to 13. AR AND C0-STA KALAMAZOO-The Kalamazoo Central Maroons brought a fine team here and went home victorious, 19 to 7. It was the last time our captain played to any extent until the Mus- kegon game, for lack was hurt early in the game. GRAND HAVEN-The Buccaneers, keyed to a fever pitch, began the game at Grand Haven with a high- powered attack that netted them a lead of 21 to U. They managed to outlast the famous Tiger last-half drive, and won 21 to 13. BENTON HARBOR-When Tiger meets Tiger, the fur is sure to fly. lt did, but a big, fast B. H. line and McPike and Clupper, speedy backs, spelled defeat to an injury-riddled Heights eleven. The score: 28-U. LUDINGTON-ln a warm-up on a cold, rain-soaked gridiron, the Tigers ran roughshod over a bedraggled Ludington Oriole eleven to the tune of 25 to O. A handful of fans re- mained in the stands at the final whistle. lt Was the wettest night in local football history. MUSKEGON-Score 6 to O. Guess who. Nuff sed. Left to right, standing: Head Coach O.

McKenzie Coach lt has been Mr. McKenzie's annual task here since 1927 to mold a team out of new recruits. He has done an outstanding job each year. Our Little Tigers completed a short but extremely successful 1943 season. For the seventeenth time, Coach D. R. McKenzie de- veloped a strong defensive team, well drilled in fundamentals. The Tigers Were victorious in four out of five games, losing only to a team which they had previ- ously loeat, Muskegon. ln the first three games, the Tigers came through easily. Every man stood out. lt was team-Work par excelence. Scores Tigers Opponents 14 ...., ..... W oodenshoes ..........., 6 40 ..... ..... B uccaneers .... ..... U 19 ..... ..... B uccaneers ,.,. ..,..

"Okie" lohnson developed an outstanding team during the '43-'44 cage season, a power which tied the tall Kala- mazoo Maroons for the Southwestern Conference title, Were victors in the Regionals, and battled its way to the semi-finals in State Class A competition. The first squad was especially strong as a defensive team with a record ot 14 victories in l5 contests. The varsity five was backed by ten extremely capable substi- tutes, all ot whom received M-H awards. The caliber of ball played by the "coordinated tive" is reflected in the honors they earned. lack Weisenburger, forward, Francis Ribecky Cthis spell- ing is correct, believe it or notl, guard, and Lyle Currie, guard, :ill Were given All-Conference berths.

Five Veterans returned for the l944 baseball season to form a fine nucleus around which Coach Oscar E. lohnson built the cur- rent team. Henry Olah, sparkling fielder and consistent hitter was chosen captain. He is a shortstop. Other veterans returning were lack Weisenburger, a pitcher and outfielder, Aut Mathews, first baseman, Vance Crane, catcher, Wallace Wood, outfielder, Promising newcomers in- clude among others: Ed Petrongelli, Larry Boone, Clarence Kins- man, Iohn Polanyi, Don VanderWeele, Dale Aker, lim lohnson, Leland Branch, and Richard Caughey. When this section of the Oaks went to press, the Tiger nine had played only one game this season, winning from Whitehall out of town, 10 to 3. Weisenburger pitched a one-hitter. Other teams on the schedule are Grand Haven, Holland, Kalamazoo, Muske- gon, North Muskegon, Holton. Although it is difficult to predict how the boys will perform at this writing, there are indications of a strong team in the making. R Q , 1 Pali Qt.

First row: Langlois, Utter, Rinehart, Cloetingh, McClure, Hulka, Garvey, Deater, Means. With only four lettermen returning for the 1944 track season, Coach David R. McKenzie, had a difficult job on his hands in order to mold the Tiger thinclads into a strong, Well-balanced team. At the time this section of the Oaks Went to press, it ap- peared that "Mac" was doing very well. The Tigers appear very strong in the track events but are no- toriously Weak in field events. Lyle Currie is one of the most promising milers in the state at this Writing. Dick Thomas, a junior, has done very well in practice in the hurdles and Ioe I-Iegedus, a junior, holds his own in the dashes. Larry Wing and Don Iohnson have stepped off some fast times in the half-mile. Bob Werner and Paul Cook have done some good Work in the 440. -104- Left ZIZIZLS evidence of a fairly successful tennis season in the air. Coach H. A. Kruizenga was again at the helm but this year did not find teams lined up as usual for a full, regular schedule ot the game. Transportation, as usual, presented a big obstacle. The following boys are lettermen from the l943 season: George Emig, lim and Tom Morton, Paul Minarovic, and Gabriel Pehr. Other members ot team are: lohn Tompkins, Mike Koteles, Larry lohnson, Clark Grant, Mart Bretting, and lack Stegeman.

It is Amer- ica's answer to those who say the "frontier" has disappeared. There must be thousands, perhaps millions, of new ideas waiting to be put into practical use for the benefit of humanity. High school students of today are the scientists of tomorrow. Here in school boys and girls are offered the fundamentals of science necessary to a preliminary study of engineering, pharmacy, medicine, nursing, and re- search. Courses in biology, physics, chemistry, general science, and related studies provide a background needed by the Army and Navy, as well as by workers on the home front. Science is vital to everyday living, today and always. as ,wk AT OLD HEIGHTS HIGH. HERE IT IS! I LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. LEAV .M V I.: 'bf - 156 - I Ad' 61 ' 4-9:25 ING WITH LOADS OF MEMORIES.

A Y Posed hy Alice Witkowski and Harry Robinson OWZWZEVCE ln times like the present, many per-Q sons raise the guestion, i'What good will I get out of commercial Work?" But it is true, perhaps in this War more than in any other, that commercial Work is of extreme importance both on the hume front and the front lines. All army camps and every good- sized ship in the fleet need typists and clerical Workers and equipment. The need of ottice Workers at home is of course obvious to all. Our high school is taking the lead in "speeding up" effi- ciency. New methods of typing are saving much time. Commercial Work will help you in War time or in peace time.

Band music adds spirit to the high school sports events and provides a fine cultural addition to the curriculum. Concerts in winter and sometimes in summer help litt community morale. ln war-time loands add the martial emphasis to weary marching feet and help the soldier to trudge that long "extra mile." Many a man and woman on the home front and in the army camp has been encouraged and in- spired by the strains of well-trained bands. All ot us know the thrill that comes with the tirst few bars ot our national anthem. A 22: R W. 6 Q. Q1 3 QM wk W mio cf V 5, u., - .V .

Bskaws- . 1 :nu Posed by Mary Lou Crcmer Gfofkbzq Conservation of clothing these days is almost as important as the conserva- tion of food. Many young Women throughout the nation, and Women with families, are learning to make their own clothes or re-style the ones they have. But it is not only a war- time economy measureg it can be used in peace time as Well. Clothing courses given here are excellent. Much attention is paid to a Working knowledge of fundamentals of construction and design. "Good taste in the field of art is the application of the principles of design to the problems of life Where utility as Well as beauty is a consideration." -,K-2 Posed by Kay Parmeter ands Today America is playing an impor- tant role in the great War that reaches around the globe. All ot our resources, all of our energies, are tocused on one single objective - victory. Men, ships, guns, tanks, and planes aid our suc- cess. But none ot these will contribute more than food. The food you serve must not only be the proper kind, it must also be tasty and interesting. Scientists speak of proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fats. Students foods classes understand him. Under guidance ot Miss Cathryn Erttmeyer, instructor, We learn what to eat and how. x.. llw- Posed by Earl Beam and Larry Boone Q3 ysica! N dv The government has required all male high school graduates to have at least half a year of physical training in their senior year of high school. This special course is required for one rea- son: to get our young men into fine physical shape before their induction into the armed services. Too many young men are unable to stand the 'lgattu of still military lite, and a pre- liminary "get-in-shape" program is a loig aid to the men and also to the army or navy. ln the War-time battles, Where lives are at stake, our government is anxious to have our boys come out on top. Those who are the loest trained are the quickest to take advantage of an enemy's mistake. ln peace-time, the importance ot good health is obvious. Q -1 Jil' i A 4 we 53 in R 5 , ,ga -Qi: Teaching Let us raise up a standard to which the wise and honest can repair. - George Washington From the beginning - when the pioneers first cut a swath through the wilderness - schools have been recog- nized as essential. Our fathers held schools to be the foundation stones of democracy, for without literacy and some competency no democratic insti- tutions can long endure. The key to education, however, lies with the teacher. Today thousands of good teachers are leaving the profession of their be of more value elsewhere, some to choice, some in the belief they can make more money, and others to enter the armed services. Here is what one teacher twho left teaching to go to Washington, DC. on a "wartime, gov- ernment job"J has to say: "Every time l looked about me in Washington, l could see the pages of history unfold. l could see men like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and scores of others sweating and toil- ing to create a nation. l could see the value of human character in the up- building of our country .... l am con- vinced that the greatest contribution I can make to my country is to prepare them fthe eager youngsters who pass in and out of my classroom doorsl for the difficulties of their adult life. If in the years of peace that follow this war l am asked, "What did you contribute toward our victory?" I shall be glad and proud to answer, "l was a teacher." y P279 -- 2.34- A 1 C.l-Nlxi 'Wwe' H.

Last year the graduates of our school left with one objective in mind: to find their places in helping to win the War on the battlefields of the World. Today that victory seems more of a certainty, but our job consequently has become even greater. Today We fight for freedom - freedom of speech, press, religion, and freedom from political oppression. Once We attain these freedoms We must preserve them. You members of the Class of 1944 are ready to take your places in line of duty. Set your goal high. Make your effort supreme. In doing so, you will help the World to build a freedom and a peace for all.

Already, however, as this is being Written, the soldiers of the Soviet armies of Russia are pushing their Way across Old Poland. What dis- position Will be made of Poland, today a much-trampled-upon country, no one knows. It is the hope of many persons of Polish descent who live here that Poland can be re-established as a unified nation once more. Primarily an agricultural country, Poland has considerable mineral Wealth. Its people were very interested in education and the arts. Some day Poland and its fine traditions must be restored. -45....

This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to beg Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter home from the hill. - R. L. Stevenson gn fha Service A service flag for Muskegon Heights High School was recently created by members of the Girl Reserves club, of which Phyllis Chapin Cleftl is treasurer and Betty Boelkins Crightl is president. The flag is our small Way of paying tribute to the hundreds of Muskegon Heights boys and girls who are doing their loyal part in Winning the War. Some have already made the supreme sacrifice and to these brave men we are forever in deepest debt. Their names, engraved in the hearts of local students and faculty, are Withheld at this Writing because of the uncertainties of War from day to day. We cannot possibly express our sorrow for these brave men. ln truth, it is almost beyond comprehension. Yet their deeds of loyalty shall forever shine forth in our memories in the years to come, reminding us that We, too, "can make our lives sublimep and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time."

K, 'Q--.TM ATN-., Wefkerfands Western Michigan, probably more than some other parts of the United States, was staggered by the invasion of The Nether- lands by the Huns early in this war. The Netherlands had always been an agricultural country inhabited by people who were hard working, clean living villagers with a deep belief in liberty. Now this peaceful nation is in the hands of Nazi soldiers who have taken the produce of Dutch farms to feed their own starving Germany. Little do they care, it seems, for those in Holland who may also be in need of food. To restore the Netherlands is another aim of the United Nations. The Dutch are hopefully look- ing forward to the day when their nation will be free. ' -495 , 1 6I'ZL0l'5 H655 of Bobert B. Kanaar, General Speech is silver, silence is golden.

Hardy Co F6666 Greece, once the country of culture and refinement, the Very center of art, science, and literature in the entire World, now is overrun by Nazi tyrants who apparently have no appreciation of all of the beauty and power they are destroying. To prevent this barbarous destruction of the most Worthwhile things in lite is the aim of the United Nations today. To help to preserve what is left and restore what has been desecrated -that is our purpose in this War. That Greece, with its temples and statues, philosophy and science, its democratic ideals and its amateur sports, should fall into ruin is unthinkable. Greece represents the highest ideals ot civilized living. lt is a symbol of anti-Nazism.

Robert Wenger, Valedictorian John fJackJ Weisenburger, Salutatorian A NEW LIGHT FOR EDUCATION By Robert Wenger, Valedictoriarx The time has at last arrived when we must leave these halls to take our respective places in society and adult life. We leave, knowing full well that we must face a troubled and discon- tented world. This fact makes the value of education have special significance and it becomes clearly evident that we have been offered a priceless oppor- tunity that will prove to be of lasting benefit throughout our life. lndeed-for an opportunity has been offered us, not only to increase our knowledge, but to provide for us, a richer, fuller life and a better under- standing of mankind. Furthermore, we have come to realize the true worth of democracy and the principles for which it stands. All of our happiness, ideals, and every goal for which we strive, depends upon the maintenance of this democracy - a democracy that was and only can be established through the ambitions, courage and knowledge of an enlightened people. Ours then must be a strong nation made up of a people strong in knowl- edge, inspired by a love of liberty and justice, and filled with a courage equal to that of those who gave their lives to preserve these principles which they believed right. Many times has the strength of our nation been tested. And so it is again. And so must we again face this solemn du ty-a duty that is placed within our hands and within the hands of thou- sands like us throughout this vast land. We have then a twofold responsi- bility-that of forever crushing these tyrant-ruled nations, which are con- tinually threatening the rights and privileges of all free men, and that of protecting our posterity by creating a final, lasting peace. The education gained here and the added appreciation for the principles of government will better enable us to face these tasks lying ahead. We shall take increased pride in knowing that We have extended to numerous nations the world over, the true spirit of democ- racy, with its guarantee of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and all the remaining high ideals which repre- sent the greatness that is America. 1651 :Af I i Xi' ivsff E-I 4 Y .ba ,V 1 S if 'H NIMH Q., I 'THE 405155 1m9i'4l4" ihi 7 liHI'f eeoh he K i ' Q, ..

In tact, they gave promise of becoming even greater than the greats of this year's mighty graduating class. The Sophs made a good choice in selecting Phil McKean for president. And they didn't tall down when they asked Austin Craymer to help him. They really hit a high point when they chose Bette Thomas, secretary, Larry Boone, treasurer, and Iames Dotson, sergeant-at-arms. Our advisers were Mr. Dorman Post and Mr. Elmer Ojala. On April 28, the Sophs held their big party ot the year, "The Pastel Prom," in the gym. Peggy Pedler and Helen Leist were co-chairmen.
