School spirit! How much those words mean to all
of us . . . especially to us who are graduating with
the Class of '47, Those two words are symbols for an
idea, the Muskegon Heights High school idea . . .
the spirit that carries us through.
It isn't a spirit confined to the cheering section
alone. It is an idea that pervades all of our endeav-
ors. It is the soul, the life of our school. We feel it in
the strains of martial music of the band, vibrating in
the memory. We sense it in the methods and manners
of our instructors. We hear it in the sweet, strong
voices of the a cappella choir. It is with us always
in the warmth and loyalty of our friends and class-
So we leave you now to thumb through the pages
of the 1947 Oaks in company with our little Tiger
mascot, "Sroines". He will help you to understand
just what we mean.

We of the 1947 Graduating Class dedicate this
volume of The Oaks to Mr. Roy A. Peterman, head
of the commercial department for the last 26 years
and one of the most loyal and hard-working sub-
scription advisors The Oaks staff could ever hope to
Mr. Peterman came to our school when the doors
opened for the first time in the fall of 1921. He has
been associated with the annual ever since. He was
instrumental in publishing the first Oaks, in Iune,
1922. He has always had his heart in our Oaks which,
he says, "is the only written evidence of the best
years of our lives."
Born in Greenville, May 14, 1891, he was gradu-
ated from Crystal High school in 1909, attended
Alma college, and received a diploma from Ferris
institute in 1912. He holds both a Bachelor of Arts
and a Bachelor of Science degree. His teaching ex-
perience includes one year of college teaching in
Oklahoma State, and 33 years of high school teach-
ing, 26 years of which have been spent here at Mus-
kegon Heights High school.
Added to his fine contribution in teaching commer-
cial subjects, Mr. Peterman has been one of our most
active faculty members. In past years his Commer-
cial club was the school's largest and most active
club. During the War Years he was faculty chairman
of the War Bond drive. He has sold football tickets
for 25 years, never having seen a Tiger game on
Phillips field until the fall of 1946 when he sat in the
stands for the first time.
That is why we dedicate this annual to Mr. Peter-
man and say, "Good-by, Mr. Peterman, and thanks
for all you have done. Best of luck!"
MR. GAYLE A. CHURCHILL
QExcerpts from the eulogy delivered by Mr. E. W. Gillaspy at the
memorial service held in the high school.J
"Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in the memory."
. . . Certain words loom up as most typical of Mr. Churchill's life,
and one of these is "faith" . . . he had faith in himself, faith in you
students . . . O, how many times was this faith shown! Only the great-
est of all music became the basic songs of the choir . . . music of faith,
music of God. He had faith in his band. Even when ill, he remarked,
"They'll work harder and do better than if I were there!"
. . . yet he was also a man of ambition . . . and he had the ever-so-
iylnportant guality of winning friends. Lastly, he was an artist, a man
o great ta ent in music.
We are saddened today by God's will that he shall raise the baton
no more -in our high schoolg yet here, today, Gayle Churchill hands to
you the baton of faith, ambition, friendship, and, above all, a sense of
good music. Be yours to hold it high!
MR. W. R. BOOKER
Mr. W. R. Booker is one of the key-men who have
made so many of our objectives possible. Few of us
realize what a tremendous task it is to be superinten-
dent of schools. Trying to move ahead with the times,
yet trying to do what is best for everyone . . . that
is a task virtually impossible, yet one which men like
Mr. Booker must attempt. ln doing so, he has Won the
sincere appreciation and respect of the students, fac-
ulty, and townspeople.

Mrs. Anna Harvath
Mrs. Harvath, a gruduaie of this high
school, has long ago proved her ef-
ficiency in the main office, both as
secretary to our principal, Mr. Bolt,
and cs office clerk. She has made
thousands of friends among the stu-
dents and on the faculty. "Indispen-
sable" probably best describes her.
Mr. C. F. Bolt
An Active Leader is just one of the many epithets of which
Mr. C. F. Bolt, our friend and principal, is most deserving. Guid-
ing the students along the pathway of knowledge, showing them
right from wrong, being a good leader and a friend . . . these
are just a few of the services Mr. Bolt renders to us and to the
Being active comes easy for Mr. Bolt. He likes to see pro-
gress in our every activity. From football to dramatics, he is
there with a helping hand and encouragement. He brings us
through with flying colors.

As we, the Graduating Class of 1947, look back
over the three years spent at Muskegon Heights High
School, we remember the many good times we've
had and lifelong friendships begun.
In our sophomore year we began with a mixer. We
had a good time at three dances we sponsored. We
nearly won the Victory Bond contest, but at the last
minute the seniors took the lead and we came in
second. We got acquainted with the mid-year sophs
at a reception we arranged for them. Neil Frick and
Marva Fredricks were our presidents, each serving
one semester-good ones they were too!
In our junior year we won the Victory Bond con-
test. "Cash and Carrie," our junior play was a great
success. We sponsored two other dances during the
year. Headed by lim Norris, we did ourselves up fine
in sponsoring the "Senior Serenade".
Our senior year was the best of all. At last we
reached that venerable position. We were surely
proud when our team won the championship. Cur
senior play, "Come Over To Our House", was a hit
in spite of the big snow storm. We dedicated our
annual to Mr. R. A. Peterman who has Worked dili-
gently for the success of our Oaks since 1921. The
weeks flew by, and then that important week ar-
rived: Baccalaureate came first : then our Class Break-
fast. We surely had the underclassmen roaring on
Class Day. Finally came that all important night,
Graduation . . .
Our knees fairly shook as We marched up for our
diplomas. Now we are out on the broad highway.
So long! Be seeing you!

For us, this is the time of happiness.
joy, and optimism We are hopeful and
are looking toward the future. But for
many graduates of the past 15 years,
the occasion was not such a joyful
one as this. First, there was the de-
pression, when there was no place
in the world for youthful workers. Then
war, when many graduates could not
be present to receive their diplomas.
Farewells were said on a note of sad-
ness, for some were final.
But today there is a place in the
business world for young people: and
there is no war to take their lives. ln
some respects the outlook is much
brighter than it was for the graduates
before us. The world needs us to live
for our country, not to die for it. Even
though there is no war, no depression,
we still are passing through a mo-
mentous time in history. The problems
of the world were never greater. These
problems will have to be solved soon,
and that means that those of us who
are just reaching adulthood, will have
a share in the solution. Upon our
shoulders rests the responsibility of
regenerating American patriotism and
selling democracy to the world. We
must offer a living example of success-
ful democracy. We cannot rest upon
the laurels of the past and hope that
our reputation will carry us' through.
We must prove democracy the best
government for humankind. Our de-
mocracy must of course begin at home,
but it must not end at home. Our deal-
ing with foreign countries must be fair,
honest, and helpful. We should help
make the United Nations a working
example of human cooperation.
Before we can handle international
obligations on this basis, we must first
look critically at our own land and see
what is wrong. We must cleanse it,
as Christ cleansed the temple, to make
it a fit place upon which the dove of
democracy may settle. We must puri-
fy American standards and morals.
We must stand up and fight the forces
which are trying to obliterate the
American Way of life. Only true belief
in and enthusiasm for our way of life
can stamp out subversive forces. Let
the voice of truly famous Americans
lead us. Let our hearts stir and swell
with pride as the spirit of Patrick Hen-
ry comes from the past to once again
rouse Americans to action. Let the calm
common sense of Thomas Iefferson
guide us, as it did him as he wrote "The
Declaration of lndependence." Let us
love our fellow men as Abraham Lin-
coln did, so we may strive to do our
best for all. May the hope and vision-
ary mind of Woodrow Wilson guide
us when the times seem dark. Let the
courage of Franklin D. Roosevelt be a
shining example when we face great
odds. May the Greatest Power of the
universe, Iesus Christ, be our living
example as we strive to make the
world a better place for all.

"School Spirit": that is the theme of
our senior class yearbook, The Oaks,
for 1947. It is something most of us
have heard about, but perhaps not all
of us have tried to grasp its fullest
meaning. What is this "school spirit"
we hear so much about? Because it is
in truth a spirit, it is difficult to explain.
It is an intangable something hard to
define: yet we all know it is something
which binds us together in every en-
terprise, binds us in loyalty to our
school, loyalty to our friends. We Sen-
iors of the Class of '47 believe now we
have discovered what this spirit of the
school really is. We can feel it in our
hearts, yet find it difficult to make it
clear to others except by example.
A few years ago, for instance, grad-
uation seemed a long way off. The time
has passed all too quickly, and now
commencement is virtually here. We
have made many tried and true friends
among both students and teachers
here: and we are undoubtedly better
persons because of them. We shall
cherish these friendships all our lives.
During these years of working and
playing together, we have developed
a sense of loyalty to our school. If we
have not always shared our burden
of responsibility, it may have been
our own fault. Many have sincerely
shared their responsibility, and have
given of their talents for the benefit of
the entire student body. We have
shown each other the way to live. In a
word. loyalty is the key-note of school
spirit, without sincerity, enthusiasm is
a mere sham, only "a tinkling cym-
Now we have come to the place
where our loyalties must be broad-
ened, our circle of responsibility will
be widened and deepened. If we can
carry out our obligations in this larger
life which is almost upon us, in the
same mannerand with the same spirit
which has characterized our endeav-
ors in high school days, then surely
we can make ourselves valuable mem-
bers of this community-or any com-
munity. A man or a woman is meas-
ured in terms of his contribution to the
progress of civilization, not merely in
terms of money or show.
This is the reason why, in this age
of atomic power, commercialism, and
machinery, that we must not forgetqour
highest loyalty, a devotion which
transcends everything, devotion to
God and His program for the univer-
sal brotherhood of man. Narrowness,
jealousy, and selfishness lead only to
conflict between friends, neighbors,
and nations. We have high hope,
therefore, that the same spirit which
we have known here in Muskegon
Heights High school, will serve as an
example and an inspiration for us all
in the great scheme of life just ahead.

for all the home football games and
participating in other school and civic

of Mr. Churchill, who passed away
shortly after the Christmas holidays,

Any girl who likes to sing will cer-
tainly enjoy the Glee Club. It is the
best place to learn the "tricks of the
trade", and provides a background
for those wishing to participate in the
work of the A Cappella Choir. Each
girl receives valuable individual in-
struction, and learns to sing her indi-
vidual part for which her voice is best
suited. The girls also learn to harmon-
ize, and have special daily singing
drills. They sing the literary classi-
cal music such as "Nightfall", "Pale
Moon", "The Robin in the Rains", and
others. Much of it produces a Wealth
of personal pleasure and satisfaction
which the girls would not exchange
for anything in the World, even though
they get school credit for their work.

Our A Cappella Choir is an organ-
ization of which the whole school is
justly proud. It was developed by the
late Mrt Gayle Churchill, director, and
has about 46 members, most of Whom
are senior and sophomores. Members
are chosen by audition and voice
classification, and not simply by en-
The past year was one of the most
active and interesting, and yet one of
the saddist, owing to the unexpected
demise of Mr. Churchill. The Choir
sang for school assemblies, for the
Woman's club, and for church organ-
izations, luncheon clubs, at the annual
Christmas assembly, the Norge Con-
vention, for Grossman's store, and over
the air through the WKBZ micro-
Socially, the Choir members have
lots of fun. A sleigh ride and a dance
were two of the events of the year, as
Well as a trip to Lansing for the state
music festival. Officers of the choir
were: President, Bob Ribeskyg secre-
tary, Charlotte Porter: and treasurer,
The choir is now under the direction

Owing to the untimely passing of
Mr. Gayle A. Churchill, our music dir-
ector, the orchestra was not able to
reach its usual peak of fine perform-
During the last few years, it was
considered wisest, under our partic-
ular music program, to limit the or-
chestra to what is known as a "string
ensemble." Furthermore, wind instru-
ments were needed for a larger march-
ing band. So, while the band was in-
creasing, the orchestra was decreas-
ing. A third reason for so few members
in the orchestra probably is owing to
the fact that few grade school children
are taking instrumental music lessons
as in past years.
In other Words, the music depart-
ment in high school is a tremendously
large job for one director. Mr. May-
nard Buck, who succeeded Mr. Church-
ill, has been planning for the future.
He would like to see our school rep-
resented by a fine orchestra as well
as an excellent band and choir. Even
if it requires five years, the job should
be done if our musical education de-
partment is to rank with others in the
state. Let us all cooperate with Mr.
Buck and the Board of Education to
the fullest extent. We want and need
We are proud of the work of our de-
bate team this year and we have good
reason to be. The affirmative debat-
ers Were: Dorothy Gleisener and Dav-
id Wampler, the only members who
had previous debating experience.
The negative was composed of Doug-
las Cutler and Dean Kessler. Because
of having won five of eight contests
with various schools of the state, they
acquired the Detroit Free Press Award
for outstanding debating. They also
succeeded in entering the regional
eliminations at Kalamazoo in which
they were matched to debate against
Hudsonville, and lost. Incidentally
the Hudsonville Debate Team was de-
feated in the State Championship de-
bate team in 1946.
Thanks to the excellent coaching of
Miss Iulia Royse and Mr. E. W. Gill-
aspy, the team did remarkably well.
The question debated this year was:
"Resolved, that the Federal govern-
ment should provide a system of com-
plete medical care available to all
citizens at public expense."

Each year our school holds a series
of forensic contests. The purpose of
these contests is to stimulate interest
in speech and to develop students
with special talents in that field.
In our speech contests this year a
large number of students participated.
Competition was keen. First place in
the Original Oratory Contest was tak-
en by Charles Votaw. His oration was
entitled "Basis for a Real Peace." Dor-
othy Gleisner took second place, and
Delores Bleich, third.
Extemporaneous Winners w e r e :
First, Douglas Cutler, and second, Dav-
id Wampler. Their topics were "How
to Get Along with Russia" and "Porta1

Betty Downey was the first place
winner in Oratorical Declamation. Sec-

Working in the cafeteria for the first semester were only six girls, each
having their own duties to perform with a helper, Mrs. Lawrence, who came
in every day at 10 o'c1ock. The 11 o'c1ock Foods IV class prepare the food every
day for the cafeteria. There are approximately 150 students every day to serve.
They serve a hot dish, sandwiches, salad, dessert and milk: each day something
different for variety.
The second semester there were two Foods IV classes. One met at9o'clock
and the other at 11. Each class helped prepare for the lunch. Three girls in
the ll o'clock class serve at noon.

Cn a cool, crisp October evening
preceeding the Muskegon Heights-
Grand Rapids Union football game,
Mr. Iames Coscarelli, of this city, pre-
sented the high school Athletic Asso-
ciation with a beautiful stone memor-
ial and bronze tablet commemorating
the ten MH letter-winners who sacri-
ficed their lives for their country dur-
ing World War ll. It was a fitting gift,
gratefully accepted by the school from
a loyal fan and friend of youth.
Plans for the memorial grew and
took shape during the summer of 1946,
when Mr. Coscarelli first discussed the
idea with C. F. Bolt, principal. The
stone, a huge boulder obtained from
Casnovia, was artistically created into
a memorial by Mr. Merritt Corbus and
now rests in the southwest corner of

One of the many outstanding improve-
ments added to the brilliantly lighted Phil-
lips Field was the electric scoreboard pic-
tured at the left. Other factors leading to
the betterment of the gridiron was the
construction of a new set of bleachers and
a retaining wall on the east side. Many
additional structures of this kind may be
added in the future.

ges of the Tiger line and brilliant play
of the backfield was too much for the
Muskies to withstand.

CAPTAIN HOWELL G,,,,,de1,us
The usual high stepping, aggressive
Tiger cagers suffered a rather mediocre
season this year, accumulating five victor-
ies While absorbing 10 defeats.
Due to lack of height, loss of Paul And-
eregg, star guard injured in football, and
the loss of Everett Grandelius, a mid-year
graduate, the Orange and Black were un-
able to hit their stride. Each game Was
fought hard and clean, and the Tigers
won the respect of every opponent they
met, including Grand Rapids South, City
Champions, who edged the Tigers by only
two points, 26 to 24, in the Regionals.

The Little Tigers, under the capable leader-
ship and direction of Coach Larry Schaude,
came forth this past season with a highly
successful record of eight wins to four defeats
in Southwestern Conference competition and
Grand Rapids Central opposition.
Paced by Captain Frank Howell, the Re-
serves, though reputedly the "underdog" on
many occasions, gave out with the "do or
die" spirit. Because of this fine showing of
determination and fight, the Tigers gained
much in experience and reputation which may
benefit them greatly in the years to come.
Besdes Howell, Iurkas, Nedeau, Bob Iohn-
son, Zom, G. and D. Iacobsons, Sietsema,
Bramble, and Hunter formed the backbone of
the team. They all showed definite improve-
ment as the season went along.

A small but fast squad of Orange and Black
trackmen-turned in some excellent times and
distances in 1946, but because of its size could
not place enough members for each event. The
result was that the team captured only one
team victory, that being over a strong Fremont
squad by a score of 59 to 45. After that the
Tigers absorbed defeats from Allegan, Hol-
land, Kalamazoo, and Muskegon. It was al-
ways the superior number who won, though the
Tigers gave them all a tough battle.
Bob Werner, whose specialty was the 440,
was an important cog: with Rogers, in the half-
mile: DePoy and McGahee, in the dashes:
and Goericke, in the mile, forming the nuc-
leus of the team.

Owing to the fact that the publication of
this year's annual necessitated an early dead-
line, we are unable to present the results of
this season's meets.
However, as we write this, a squad of about
40 boys have turned out for practice, with
four lettermen retuming from last year's team.
Bill McGahee, dash man who competed in
the State meet: Goericke, miler: Stibitz, shot-
putter: Ribesky, half-miler: Bob Martin, hurdlerz
and a newcomer, Tom Iohnson, "utility" pow-
er, formed the squad.
Coach Dave McKenzie was expecting much
from certain sophs, and here's hoping that a
victorious season will have been experienced
by the time the fighting Tiger thinclads, as
well as we editors on The Oaks, lay down
our work for the year.
Top Row-Coach Dahlberg, Johnson, Sturgis, Courtright, Caughey, Bredin. Knopf, Proctor, Nordstrom.
Front Row-McDowell, Sholtens, Graff, Votaw, Erickson, Hansen, Nedeau, Wiganusky.
The Tfger tennis team, though loaded with
ability, lacked the necessary competitive ex-
perience and fared rather badly, with two wins
and five defeats. Miles Bunk was the coach.
At Grand Haven, the Tigers succumbed to
a 4--3 defeat with Votaw, in singles, and
Johnson and Hansen, doubles, capturing hon-
ors. The Tigers outplayed Holland to win 4-3:
then came defeats by Kazoo, 7-0, and Benton
Harbor, 5-2. The Tigers beat Grand Haven,
4-3, and lost to Holland 6-1.
In the Regionals the Tigers lost the first day.
Leading players were: singles, CU Votaw, C23
Beattie, CSD LeBoeuf, C47 Doll: doubles, CD Iohn-
son and Schmalzer, C23 Hansen and Graff, C39
Turrell and Caughey.
A powerful and fairly well balancedatennis
squad will hit the courts this year in an at-
tempt to regain some of their lost prestige
after a disastrous 1946 season.
Under the tutelage of a new coach, Ernest
Dahlberg, who also was assistant football coach
in 1946, the squad was expected to go a long
way as this volume of The Oaks went to
p1ess. Led by Charles Votaw, a consistent
winner for two years, and aided by Bob Graff.
Bob Scholtens, Bill Turrell, Harold Hansen.
and others, the team entered the Conference
race with serious intentions of giving the league
leaders a lot of good competition.
The majority of games scheduled were to
be played away from home, a factor in lessen-
ing local interest in the game. Home games
in any sport do much to create local enthus-

THE OAKS ANNUAL STAFF
Those working on The Acorn, our school
newspaper, prepare themselves for the greater
task of editing and publishing the senior class
yearbook, The Oaks, as well as learning a
little about publishing from the practical angle,
as well as out of a text-book. Stories must first
be gathered, a process which develops tact,
accuracy, poise, and alertness. Then they must
be written in newspaper style, typewritten, set
up in type, proof-read, and made up ready for
printing in our own school print shop. Draw-
ings and photographs must be sent to the en-
gravers with instructions for reducing or en-
larging. The last step, the actual printing, is
done under the direction of Mr. C. F. Koehn
and the boys in the print shop. Mr. W. E.
Murray is our Acorn editorial staff adviser.
Mr. Cobb takes the pictures and Miss Keillor,
art teacher, supervises drawings. Mr. Peterman
and Mr. Bolt are business advisers.
lt is work, but is so enjoyable and so sat-
isfying to those who do the work, that it be-
comes a facinating subject for study. Each
year, we hope, the little Acorns will continue
to grow into bigger and better Oaks.

The school newspaper, The Acorn: The
Heights Record, The Muskegon Chronicle, and
Radio WKBZ have provided an opportunity
for interesting writing and acted as a stimulus
to better work throughout the year. They have
helped develop in the journalism students the
qualities of co-operation, tact, accuracy, toler-
ance, responsibility, and initiative.
The students in the Iournalism classes were
assigned certain "beats" to cover. The fin-
ished stories were turned in to one of the
editors, who edited them and had them typed.
They were then published, or given to the
girls to broadcast over WKBZ each Wednes-
day afternoon at 4:00. These girls were Ioanne
Kolbeck, Ruth Ann Strand, Ieanne Booker, and
We hope that these means of publishing the
school news have helped promote co-operation
between parents and the school, and increase
