SEASON IN REVIEW Grand Rapids Creston-The Tigers got off to an unimpressive start as they turned down the Bears, 9-0. A safety and the familiar pass, Petrongelli to Howell, spelled defeat for the visitors on a soggy field. Grand Rapids Catholic-The next victims to fall under the dynamic Tigers were the Cougars who went on to win the Grand Rapids City Champion- ship. Final score, 21-13. Holland - The Tigers ran roughshod over the Woodenshoes, defeatinq them 37-6 on the Dutch home ground. Hulka had a field day in scoring 3 touchdowns. Grand Rapids Union-The Redhawks bowed to a sparkling aerial attack exhibited by the Tigers Petrongelli flipped three touchdown passes Grandelius snatched two of these as he played a bang-up game at quarter. Final score: 25-0. Kalamazoo-The Maroon Giants were considered a powerhouse in the S. W. Conference until the Bengals toppled them to the tune of 27-7 on Phillip's field. The game was fairly even until the Tigers let loose in the last half. Grand Haven-The Tigers traveled to the Bucca- neer home ground and scored four touchdowns in the first quarter. The first eleven watched the re- mainder as the reserves went on to win 37-12. Benton Harbor-A new attendance record was set at Phil1ip's field when the downstate Tigers came here. Over 5500 fans Watched the Tigers stop Forestieri cold and win the battle, 13-0. Battle Creek-As a breather before the Muskegon game the Bengals went to Battle Creek and won an easy victory: 13-0. Muskegon-What happened and how it happened on November l7, 1945 hardly needs recollection here. The game will live in the minds and hearts of all those who witnessed or played in this glor- ious Tiger victory.-How much for the Bengals to win-How very much for the Big Reds to lose. -97- THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TOUCHDOWN PLAY X In , is 7 In 2 S. In the scene above, Iim Howell, ace end. can be seen rounding right end on the famous "end-around play" of the Tigers, for a touchdown-spelling defeat for the Big Reds of Muskegon. A moment later Dozr Grover, fullback, kicked the point which clinched the victory for the Tigers. SEASON SCORES Heights Opponents Heights ........ 7 ........

Douglas, Coaches Ziegler, Iohnson, McKenzie d S This coaching staff of Muskegon Heights High School is without question one of the foremost in the State. The athletic prowess shown consistently by boys of this school is respected by all high school teams of Michigan in most sports. We have competed in Class A competition for many years but have rarely had the enrollment necessary to be Class A ourselves. We believe that this is proof enough of the skill and downright hard working qualities of our coaching staff. The records show that Mr. O. E. Johnson and Mr. C. P. Zeigler are undoubtedly a first rate pair in football coaching. It has been a long time since anyone has ex- pected to whip one of their football ma- chines with ease. On the second team about 35 boys each year are taught the rudiments of the game by Mr. D. R. McKenzie who this year was assisted by Mr. L. A. Schaude. These boys come up to the varsity al- ready well grounded in fundamentals. "Okie" and "Zig" put on the polish and we have another powerful threat in Michigan athletic circles. -99- chzude.

Line-Hansen, Lynn, Cook. Stibitz, L. Gauthier, Heaton, Cater. The Muskegon Heights Reserves, under the leadership of Coach David R. McKenzie, rang up a fairly successful season last fall by winning five out of eight games. Paul Anderegg and Alvia Cater were standouts all season, but it was the boys in the line who helped to put them there. The Little Tigers main- tained their excellent reputation. CAPTAIN ANDEREGG I-IITS KAZOO LINE .' ff ' .. w,f.qyn "'J In the scene above, taken on Phillips field during the Tiger-Kalamazoo Maroon game, Captain Paul Anderegg is plunging through the middle of the Maroon line. The Tigers eventually won this game 26 to 13. -102- SHELBY - The Little Tigers started off with a "bang" by de- feating the Shelby varsity team 12 to 6. Anderegg and Cater led the attack with a T.D. apiece. COOPERSVILLE - Amidst the rain and mud the Reserve rang up their second victory of the season over the Coopersville eleven 7 to 6. A cold rain made footing treacherous. HOLLAND-The following week the Seconds traveled to Holland with their head in the clouds. They promptly had it yanked down by a couple of passes which caught them flat-footed. Score 6 to U in favor of the Dutch. ST. MARY'S-On Oct. 12, the Little Bengals fell prey to a team beaten once in two sea- sons. Anderegg was the spark, but St. Mary's won, 37 to 12. KALAMAZOO - In their first home game, the Seconds out- classed the Kazoo men, to win 26 to 13. Coach Schaude had begun to get the line into shape and synchronizing with the backfield. GRAND HAVEN-The Seconds journeyed to the new Green Hill field to blank the Bucs, 28 to U. The Reserves, who played in a cold rain, scored twice in the first half and twice in the second. GRAND HAVEN-The Little Bucs came to Phillips field for a return match, but got nowhere as Coach Schaude's squad ran over them 32 to 7. Passing, Anderegg to Cater, clicked three times. MUSKEGON - The game with our time-honored rival tumed out to be a calamity in more ways than one. Paul Anderegg, captain, was injured on the sec- ond play of the game and hos- pitalized for severel Weeks. The Reds won 25 to 18. LET'S GIVE A BIG "FIGHT LOCOMOTIVEU 5.

That something was experience. Next year all the boys Will be back and all will be vete- rans. If Coach Iohnson can get a tall boy to work around, the 1946- 47 quintet Will be the team to watch in the Conference, we pre- dict. Dorr Grover, tall star, was lost by graduation at mid-year, a severe loss to the team. Then, too, this year's team did not have all the luck in the World, at times. Some new boys may come up next winter to surprise everybody. That often happens. In the game against Holland, who turned out to be State Cham- pions in the tournament, the Tigers lost by one point in an overtime. Basketball is one of those unpre- dictable games. HOWELL SHOOTS AGAINST HOLLAND - 105 - .pefcczfiozz MR. DAVID R. MCKENZIE S.. tv fa' Q , x. - H, x Coach Schaud . Q r P' S'WEST RUN NERSUP If the seconds of one year are any indication of the future varsity, then our school should fare well in the coming sea- sons. This year's aggregation of Reserve Basketeers were as fighting and spirited a group as we have seen. Under Coach Larry A. Schaude the Little Tigers played in ll games, as they Won eight and dropped just three. This was Coach Schaude's initial season as a basketball coach. He succeeded Mr. Herman A. Kruizenga who compiled an enviable record over a period of several years with the Reserves. Rene McDowell, right guard, was high scorer for the year. Harold Han- sen, at left forward, Was second in scoring and was elected captain. Bob- VanderVen was the tall- est boy on the team, and held down center post. Bill Caughey, at left guard, was an exception- ally good ball handler, "setting up" many good shots for his team-mates. Gene Fisher, right for- ward, was offensive threat in early victories. Proud of its double vic- tory over Muskegon, the Little Tigers finished in second place in the South- Western Conference. SEASON SCORES Hts ..... 33 22 .... G. R. Union Hts ..... 27 25 .... B.

Coach Okie Iohnson started the season with nine letterrnan back, plus a wealth of new material. The returning letterrnan are Paul Anderegg, Alvia Cater, Everett Grandelius, Ed Petrongelli, Lany Boone, Fred Moeller, Bob Erhardt, Ray Sanders, and Alan Kushner. George Washington has looked good in practice and should develop rapidly, as Strieqel at the catching post is also doing. .Stan Whitlow, Dick Ghezzi, Ray McLean, Bill Wansten, Neil Frick, and Dick Hagen complete the first string. The Tigers have a rather tough schedule this year but should -come through. Games are scheduled with S'West Conference teams -and also with Ravenna. v -fi Q ,- '-'fi ,, .,,l, A fl '77 GY- M4-4-":e' Q Vw , . -VII , ,V ,wmsfc 5 PRQPERTY OF f.Qtl "91.g DIRECTOR O. E.

McKenzie, track mentor. Six lettermen had returned from last year to give the Tigers a sizable number of tentative firsts in their meets with such schools as Kalamazoo, Holland, Allegan, Fremont, and Muskegon. Lettermen include Bob Werner who has made a specialty of the 440 yard dash. Bob will prove tough competition tor opponents in the state finals, it is believed. Kayle DePoy was sure to excell in the 100 and the 220, while Zoratti has been a standout in the weiqht department in early season trials. George Rogers was an exceptional half miler last year, and this year is expected to do even better. Ioe Koteles had returned to run the hurdles, and Frank Stariha switched from the 440 to compete in the high hurdles. Newcomers of talent include McGahee, a speedy colored boy in the dashes, and Iohn Krol, along with Goeriche in the mile. Roland Smoth was doing good work at the 440 in pre-season tryouts. All in all, it looked as if the Tigers were off to a successful season as this section of The Oaks went to press. Back Row-Slobodin, Melin, Coach McKenzie, Elko, Gabriel, Mitchell, Dean, Shepherd Morris LaNore Third Row-Drake, Hanslits, Verduin, Kessler, Heaton, Sydnor, Buchan, Alvord. Second Row-Ivory.

Koteles was absent when this picture was taken -108- As the 1946 tennis season rolls around, it finds a new coach ushered in, Myles E. Bunk, a new teacher. He takes over the posi- tion leit by H. A. Kruizenga who coached the teams successfully for several years. The season this year should be a "hot" one. Coach Bunk has three veterans back in Charles Votaw, Larry Iohnson, and William Schmalzer. These boys are supplemented by a score ot "racketeers." Although no matches were played before this section of The Oaks went to press, there was every indication of a good season. This year's schedule calls for games with Conference teams and a Regional and State tournament. Back Row-Wigcxmusky, Turrell, Coach Runk, Hansen, LeBoeuf, Galarneczu.

The winners earned enough points for a school letter. Intramural sports in basket- ball and baseball are played among any of the girls who desire to sign up. Ping-pong, bowling, and tennis are play- ed in the spring by those in the gym classes. Miss Maxine Cobb, physical education instructor, is a former student graduate of Muskegon Heights High school and an outstanding athlete. She is responsible for the entire girls physical ed program, including danc- ing. m 1, A I -I 1 1, 5 W 1 1 I WY I , I -111- A INDEX TO ADVERTISERS A. B.

F. BOLT Iune, 1948, marks the conclusion of twenty-five years of instruction in this high school. Built in 1921 and "opened for business" in the fall of that year, Muskegon Heights High school has been "home" to thousands of students. Concurrently, this Iune marks the twenty-fifth year for Principal C. F. Bolt, our faithful and energetic leader here for the last quarter century. There are only three others of the faculty, now on active duty, who were here with Mr. Bolt when Mr. Peterman M M5 l A Mr. Koehn the building opened in 1921. They are: Calvin F. Koehn, printing instructor: Roy A. Peterman, head of the commercial de- partment and Oaks subscription advisor: and Miss Iulia A. Royse, public speaking instructor and dramatics coach. We Seniors salute these four "pio- neers" who have lightened our loads and blazed a trail which should not be too difficult for us to follow. We sincerely offer them our lifelong gratitude and re- spect on this, the Silver Anniversary, of our school.

VICE-PRESIDEN 1' SECRETARY TREASURER SERGEANT-AT-ARMS SERGEANT-AT-ARMS Iohnson Campsmith Demitropoulos Wenger Eder PRESIDENT PLEASANT MEMORIES 1 As we, the Seniors of 1946, look back over the three years spent at Muskegon Heights High school, we re- X " i -4 -r" member the enjoyable times we've had. It all began when we were Sophomores and held b" ' P our first dance, "The Pastel Prom". As Iuniors, we gave l the dances, "Moonlight Melodies" and "Iunior Iubilee": C: wt Craymer YW the Iunior Play, "Growing Pains", then the fun-filled Iunior picnic, and lastly, the prom, "Anchors Aweigh", in honor of the Seniors. "Tomorrow Heaven", our Senior Play, started us off on our last year. All too suddenly came the picnic, the tea, and the final furious week. We cried a little at Baccalaureate, enjoyed the breakfast, raised the roof on Class Day, and then . . . Graduate Night. With swelled hearts we received our treasured diplomas. We came to realize at these never-to-be-forgotten cere- monies that this was perhaps the last time we would all be together . . . our prom would be the very end. These have been our years, our school, and we are proud and happy to be graduated from Muskegon Heights High. We now say farewell, everybody, and thank you for everything.

Mich- igan, the largest industrial city in the world, has topped the record as having the largest population of any city in the world. As my husband and I drive into our old home town, we see the tall buildings, wide streets, beautiful residential districts, and the 1966 all-glass automobiles. I must not forget the little suburb of Muskegon which still holds the northeast position of our county. You have read the brief statistics of our large city, so now we must check into a hotel. The Garvey Hotel sounds like a nice one, the Garv--- hey! That must be Marshall Garvey. As we walked into the hotel, there he stood, proud as a new papa- say, maybe he is! Yes sir, and we discovered that his charming wife is none other than Wilma Shafer. As we went up in the elevator to our rooms, we saw that the elevator operator was Larry Boone, looking just as handsome as could be in his uniform. We talked to him a few minutes and found that Harriet Hague was his wife. They are very happy with their family of ten boys. lWhat are you trying to do, start a football team?l When the bellhop put our bags down in front of the door, we realized that he was quite familiar. When my husband tipped him ll5cl, I saw that he was a perfect resemblance to Don Carlson. Ptesemblance nothing-that was he, strange as it may seem. Once in our rooms, we called and had our dinner brought up. Were we surprised to see Peggy Pedler carrying the tray! Questioning her about old times. we leamed that she was chief cook and bottle washer in the hotel. In came the hotel maid who was Elnora Hancock. She looked very nice in her uniform. She straightened up the room very neatly and left us, of course, after receiving her tip of l4c. We decided that this being our first night in town, we would see the beautiful Sagara Opera House opening. We left the hotel and hailed a taxi. The driver was none other than Cecil Alexander. Arriving at the opera house, we bought our tickets, received a program, and were seated. We glanced through our programs, reading that Bill McPheron was the owner of this beautiful opera house. His symphony orchestra was being led by Paul Larsen, and his main singer was Ieanette Wheaton. That delightful evening found us once again at our hotel rooms. Before retiring, we made up our minds that we would settle down in our old home town once again, after our ten years of travel abroad. We woke up to a beautiful day and also to the many tasks that lay ahead of us. First, we must see a real estate agency for a home. It would be hard driving around in a taxi all day, so we had to buy a car first of all. Walking four blocks to the nearest auto dealer, we looked at the stylish glass cars. Finally, after much arguing, we decided on a 1966 Cadillac. The car dealer came out and took the money icashl and-well do tell4it's Ioe Gingras. Driving the car back, we only got two blocks when we ran out of gas, but luckily we were near a gas station so we got some gas immediately. The gas station attendant was Doug Premo. He filled our car with gas. and from there we went directly to a real estate agency. We noticed a sign reading "Stariha's Real Estate Agency" and recognizing the name, we stopped. His office was in the front part of his home and he had a picture of his wife on his desk, the former Ianice Rogoski. He promised us we could move right into a fumished home at 5:00 that afternoon: so we were off again to get our many shopping errands done. We parked the car and went into the first shop which sold Women's apparel. The proprietor was Colletta Kropf. We were seated, and of many beautiful models, we noticed two from our class. One was Gladys Reynolds and the other was Catherine Hartman. Purchasing a lovely gown, I just had to have a hat to go with it, so into a hat shop we went. William Schmaltzer was the manager, and he introduced us to his two chief clerks, whcm we already knew, Norma lean O'Neil and Irene Rajkovacz. Once more on the street, we saw many shops with familiar names, as Gloria Matuz's dancing studio. We went inside to watch and saw the children of Mr. and Ted Krueger fformerly Wilma Kissb. and Mr. and Mrs. Ken Veurink fformerly Esther Minerl, and Mr. and Mrs. Iohn Myers fformerly Irene Iohnsonl. They had very charming children. Leaving, we continued our journey, and saw the "Gettum Clean Laundry" whose proprietor was Wanda Kufta. As clerk, she had Shirley Roberts. Chief presser was Iohn Sydnor. Next, we came to a Patience and Fortitude Corporation. Managers were Marcie Moran. Marjorie Brown, Catherine Schultz and Mary Ann Kotrosits. My husband stopped to get a shoe shine from Melvin Doremire. A very shiny job, I must say. After having his shoes shined, he wanted to explore a men's store in a large metropolis like this, so we went to Beauleaux and Bush, Inc. Richard Beauleaux and Lowell Bush have quite an investment there. , gr WF tx'5'- ,A V I. ' . Q,-. 1 Tr . I -fl.

Ioe Teuling is sole owner ol this super-duper drug company. As soon as we walked in, we noticed the fountain girl was Rosemary Helman and Ioe's right-hand pharmacist was Hubert Bauman. While headed for the Save Nothing Department Store, we met Marilyn Vanderweele and Fairy Jonas coming down the street. Conversing with them added to our knowledge that they were both secretaries to Eugene Hilliard, who owned a lumber company. Paul Filka was owner of the Save Nothing Department Store, and we learned that lovely Bertha Chalko was his wife. A couple of the clerks were also familiar. One was Edna Wildlong and the other Ardis Blohm. We were going to go over and talk to them, but were interrupted by a cart being pushed by a stock boy CBoy? 37 years of agel who was Melvin Stratton. Having all our shopping done, we went to our new home, which was located in a very nice residential district. A maid was already there waiting ior us. She was Alice Groeneveld. For our second evening of enjoyment, we decided to see a couple of the larger night clubs. First, we went to the Comomber Night Club which was owned by Athens Dendrinos. The head waiter was Don Bartels and he showed us to our seats. Once in our place, we watched the floor show. The singer was Evelyn Lukas, band leader was lack Putnam, juggler was Ed Petrongelli and the bubble dancer was Cathy Diamond. Frances Antisdale, cigarette girl, was doing well with her sales, we noticed. While here, we saw Vernon Robinson and his new bride, Evelyn Wenger. The second night club we visited was the Hubba Hubba Night Spot, owned by Austin Craymer. As we entered, the hat check girl, who was Betty lane Post, took our hats and coats. They had a very nice floor show. The band leader was Roland Smith and his songstress was Audrey Riddell. A very fascinating dance team was Donna Cook and Ioe Gabriel. After this we went home and retired for our second night in MUSKEGON HEIGHTS. When we awoke Sunday morning, the sun was shining brightly through our window. We arose to go to church. When we got there, we were surprised to see that Iim Nill was the preacher. A few rows ahead of us we saw Allesha Hradsky, looking very charming in a new spring suit. Alter the church services, someone tapped me on the shoulder. and touring around, I saw that it was Bob Townsend, looking very handsome indeed. Right ahead of us were Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hagen this wife, the former Virginia Olsonl. After church we went home and had our dinner. We argued where we would spend our aiternoon. Of course, I won, and my decision was to the city park. We walked around the park cnd saw lack Erickson, sole proprietor of a cute little popcorn stand. We also saw Margaret Broadbent, and, talking to her, we found out she was a teacher of shorthand and tpying at M.H.H.S. and that Allan Fletcher was the principal of our school. A chemistry teacher was Bob Kuharevicz. Right ahead of us was an outdoor boxing match. In the preliminaries were Iim fHit-'em-hardj Dotson and George fCherry-treel Washington. In the main match were Louie tTake-it-easyl Kollar and lack tGrowsomeD Crouch. It was very interesting. We didn't wait for the results. Looking toward the street, we saw a bus almost hit an apple cart. The bus driver was Robert Kiesgen. The owners of the apple cart were the partners. Al Paulson and Roger Parmenter. We also saw a hot dog stand owned by Mike Kuziak and work- ing with him was his wife, Carol Rudd. After our delightful day in the park, we returned to our hcme and prepared to go to a premiere starring Mary Demitropulos and Paul Hulka in, "If Poison Doesn't Work, See This" ta tragedyl. The author of the play was Gloria Fekete, Producer wqg Bud Dunham, Director was Ray Sander, Costume manager wcs Betty Yonkers, Make-up artist was Marie Start, and the owner of this magnificent movie-house was Patsy Bar. When we arrived, we bought our tickets and handed them to the ticket-taker, Ed Sanockig then the usher, Doris Cincush, showed us to very desirable seats. Reading the program, we found that Helen Leist was the stand-in for Mary Demitropoulos and lack Kearney was stand-in for Paul Hulka. After the movie we once again returned to our home. Monday morning proved to be another bright day and being Monday, I started my washing. When I took out my first basket-full to hang up. I saw my neighbors working vigorously with theirs, too. I found that the people living on my right were Mr. and Mrs. Bob Engel Cforrnerly Mary lane Swettl. and the on es living on the left were Mr. and Mrs. Delore Crane Cformerly Dorothy Chesneyl. Mrs. Engel and Mrs. Crane came over into my back yard and we talked over old times. I learned that Robert Doll was a scientist and his wife, Jinx Huth, was engaged in dressmaking. I also learned that Lowell Nelson is still in college. He figures that if he goes four years to every college, he will someday become a very brilliant man. Iune Skok has gone to California University to study beauty culture. At the end of our little chat, they asked me to attend their Woman's Club that evening. When I arrived at the club, l noticed Mrs. Engel, Mrs. Crane, Rita Ienson, twife of Wilmer Williamsl, and lane Sell, fwife of loe Germani. We had a very en.. tertaining time. I've told you of my return to Muskegon Heights, Michigan, cnd so now I'll tell you who I am. I am Mrs. Iames Keith. formerly Ruth Swanson. Remember? lt. llll.

It was a national winner in the Newspaper Snapshot Contest sponsored by Eastman Kodak, and is shown here by the courtesy of that company. The picture has been hung in some two hundred art galleries and salons throughout the United States. The ship is the old S.S.S. Oliver Perry. She was built in 1819 at Nova Scotia and for many years carried African mahogany across the Atlantic. She was used as a rum carrier during prohibition days and still carries a shot on the starboard, a memento of the day she was captured by federal agents. The ship is now used as a training vessel for the Sea Scouts. 0 - afedicforiam ' -1-:gf Qg eafjg., ' .: .fx -fi:-: ft 2f 'k' .

We have long awaited the time when we should re- ceive our diplomas, leave the school routine, be on our own, and do as we please. The time is here, but we know now that we cannot be free because from these past years of world-wide struggle and strife we have gained new know- ledge-knowledge which reveals imperatively that a strong and permanent peace must be set up. The fact that we face the task of establishing and maintaining the basis for a lasting peace has given education a special significance. Indeed, an opportunity has been offered us, not only to increase our knowledge, but also to provide the world with an example of the true spirit of de- mocracy with its guarantee of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Through the education of ourselves in world events and world peoples we may gain a view of the distressing needs that must be met by the combined efforts of the nations of the world in order to maintain a lasting peace. Perhaps the exchange of students from one country to another would be a method of instilling in the world an international unity. Some method must be found to insure the world of peace. It is the graduates of the schools of every nation that will have to meet and work together on this problem. How shall we accomplish this great task set be- fore us? One thing is certain, God and his Ten Commandments must never be forgotten, nor ignored. Unless our peace is built on this firm foundation, civilization will be hopelessly lost. It is our duty and privilege as educated citizens of the United States to work together to build a last- ing peace, for all, forever. A MEMORABLE OCCASION by Harriet Hague Graduation time has come for the Senior Class of 1946. We Seniors feel honored and grateful that our graduation will be a particularly memor- able occasion. Graduation this year marks a quarter of a century of Seniors going forth from the halls of this building. For twenty-five years this high school has rendered its service to this community. As the school has grown in size it has always maintained its high ideals and standards. It has offered education and recreation to thousands of students who preceded us. We are, indeed, hon- ored to be the twenty-fifth anniversary class. As we, the Seniors, leave to follow in the footsteps of those graduating before us, we are grateful for the preparation we have received. This Class of 1946 is also the first peacetime graduating class in four years. We are entering into a far different world than that of former gradu- ating classes. We are not sending our fellow graduates out to fight for freedom, but rather to preserve it. It is perhaps even a greater task. We will need all we have learned here to be equal to the demands of a peacetime world. Because this school building was dedicated to the dead of World War I, it is particularly fitting that we, the twenty-fifth graduating class, have been given the opportunity to use our knowledge for preserving peace. May we-realize our re- sponsibilities and have the knowledge to face them courageously. ..56.. ,VVff'i.wrf'V.3ffizVV.,. -wifi. . If' .,.x1"7" 'i ' -. --if .C 4' V - Q. - .'.-hi,-. I.

The outstanding event of the year spons- ored by the Iunior Class was the annual junior-Senior "farewell" party and dance, held Iune 14. Co-chairmen for the affair were Barbara Mattson and Everett Gran- delius. It was a semi-formal dance and one of the most elaborate school parties in years. Other dancing parties were held earlier in the year, one of the most Well attended being held immediately after one of the basketball games. A loyal group of officers and energetic committees contributed in large measure to the success of the Iunior activities. ADVISORS Mr, Kruizengg Miss Reid MI. MUUGY ..58.. union Adams, Anderegg, R.

If it wasn't for our newly organized Art Club under the direction of Miss Paula Hubscher, we wouldn't have much of an "Oaks" to talk about. The mem- bers did most of the drawings you now see in 1946 Annual. "And still be doing, never done." Chosen from a certain group of girls who have a certain average in their studies, these girls are hon- ored to be in the Booster Club of Muskegon Heights High School. We recognize them from all sorts of activities, such as selling hot dogs at the football games, sponsor dances and all sorts of things. oosfer OFFICERS President: Betty Yonkers Vice-pres.: Irene Rajkovacz Secretary: Margaret Broadbent Treasurer: Doris Hunter Advisor: Miss Maxine Cobb -77 bv- CUWZEITL OFFICERS President: Iames Keith Vice-president: Larry Iohnson Secretary: Rosemary Helman Treasurer: Austin Craymer Advisor: Mr. Iames V.

Meetings are held at the homes of the director and the mem- bers. They are all leaming fast and enjoying them- selves at the same time. Maybe in the Camera Clubs of the future, the students will do most of the photography themselves for the "Oaks." "Small, but mighty."

We realize that if peace is to remain in the world, we must apply ourselves immediately to the task of maintaining it, therefore, we have chosen "Education for Peace" as the "theme", the philosophic motif, around which we have tried to weave this yearbook. May we recognize the many problems facing our great nation in this postwar, peace- time era. We pledge ourselves to make the best use of the education which has been so freely given us. We pray that We may in some measure repay our gallant predecessors by insuring a peaceful world for those who will follow after us. Buit, Chvala, Goulet. Hamilton. Bassarab, Musgrave, Harshbarger.

Singing for assemblies, social functions, non-school organiza- tions, and the annual Spring Style Show are all a part of the Glee Club program. This is also the "stepping stone" for girls who Wish to enter the A Cappella Choir. The greatest problem of the organization is to get more girls interested in the work.

A Cappella Choir, an organization ot which We are justly proud, is largely com- posed ot junior and senior students. The repertoire of the group includes 30 num- bers, all oi which have been memorized. The music represents the various schools of composition from the earliest down to the present time, including a number of folk songs. The choir is under the able direction of Mr. Gayle Churchill. During the year, the choir presented two concerts, one during the Christmas sea- son and one in late spring. The group also sang at the District meeting of the Mich- igan Education Association last fall in Grand Rapids, and also at the Muskegon County Techers Institute in March. The choir also made several local appearances throughout the year, singing for business clubs and church organizations. , One of the most interesting experiences the choir enjoyed Was the week-end trip to Ann Arbor in May. While there, the group participated in the Vocal Music Festival. -37- Sfrinq lzsembfe Schroeder, Strand, Colburn, Procter, Start, George, Rudd. Schmidt, Scales. The musical strains of Mozart, Beethoven, and other famous composers heard from the auditorium at 10 every morning may have reduced themselves in volume but not in quality. Due to the fact that there are not any brass or woodwind players in the orchestra, the organization this year diminished to a String Ensemble under direction of Gayle Churchill. "TomorroW Heaven", "Cash and Carrie" CSenior and Iunior Playsl, and Bacca- laureate were the main appearances of this year's Ensemble, at which time brass and Woodwind instruments were added from the band. Gloria Iean Scales, 'cel1ist, and one of the most outstanding members, also plays in the West Shore Symphony. .-88.- Learning techniques are more im- portant to the student in a clothing laboratory than a new dress. The measure of success is determined by the student's ability to select and make satisfactory garments in her home. Four semesters of clothing are offered. Each semester deals with definite problems such as textiles, design, clothing selection and care.

Vaughan DIRECTOR Public Law 346, 78th Congress, f more commonly known to everyone as the "G. I. Bill of Rights," provides, in general, that any veteran of World War II, other than those dishonorably dis- charged, is entitled to complete his edu- cation at government expense. In addi- tion to a yearly grant of S500 for tui- tion, fees, etc., a veteran may draw a monthly subsistence allowance, the amount of which varies if the veteran is married. The amount of educational benefits that the veteran may obtain is usually an amount equal to the num- ber of months spent in active service, plus twelve, but can not exceed a total of 48 months. Inasmuch as many men were called into service prior to finishing high school, and since it was felt that this community should offer an educational opportunity to local veterans, it was re- solved by the Muskegon Heights Board of Education-"to authorize its Super- intendent of Schools to make the neces- sary arrangements for the establishment and maintenance of a Veterans' Insti- tute ol Muskegon Heights, Michigan-." As a result, all eligible veterans who wish to do so may take advantage of this opportunity to finish their high school studies. The purpose of the Veterans' Insti- tute is, therefore, to offer educational opportunities to the returned service- man. Among the types of study pro- grams offered are: the eaming of a high school diploma: the earning of college entrance requirements: the study of special trade or occupational courses! this type is usually undertaken by the older veteran who is already estab- lished in a trade or specialty: the study of subjects related to "On-the-Iob" training program for veterans: finally, the purely academic study of subjects for background, cultural purposes, or lor a self-planned review or refresher prior to entering a college or university. For most students, the work is ac- complished under a supervised corres- pondence study plan. Veterans who so desire are enrolled in regular daily classes in the Senior High School. Un- der the correspondence system, students send completed work to the correspond- ence school in which they are enrolled. The school fumishes the lessons. cor- rects and grades them, and returns them to the student. All correspondence study is done under the direct supervi- sion of the Directors of the Veterans' Institute. Upon successful completion of the courses, Mr. Bolt, principal of the Senior High School, awards credit to the student towards his diploma or col- lege entrance requirements. All vete- rans who complete their prescribed cur- riculum are considered as graduates of Muskegon Heights High School, and are awarded diplomas. Veterans enrolled in the Institute meet from 3:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. with an hour off for dinner. This schedule is followed for the regular school days, Monday through Friday. Most of the study is done in the Cafeteria, which is ad- mirably suited to this type of program. Most, but not all, of the veterans en- rolled in the Institute are former Heights High Students. Some are finishing high school, while a good number have pre- viously graduated and are now work- ing to complete college entrance re- quirements. All of them-influenced by their service experiences - are deter- mined to work off a lack they have al- ready felt rather keenly-the lack of education. The war has impressed rather firmly in their minds that educa- tion is a prerequisite of their future. The student body might be termed cr "Teacher's Ideal" class of students. These are mature and serious students, yet possessing a broad and practical sense oi humor. They know what they want and are eager to leam. Some of them were irresponsible while in high school, but are now ruefully admitting that such a lack of application pays poor dividends. These men have found out the "hard way," that "Knowledge is Power".
