Housmom PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF MUSKEGON HEIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN A Music Speaks A Universal Language We the Graduates of 1949 chose "music" as the theme for this volume of our senior yearbook be- cause music "speaks a universal language." Music is understood by all peoples of all nations. It is therefore a great unifying influence. In all lands. people have learned to love and appreciate music, in one form or another. It inspires, it soothes, it charms, it has the power to quiet the soul or to quicken the pulse. lt is cultural. It lifts the spirit and the character out of the drab and the everyday, into higher levels. During the past year or more, music has come to mean more in our school than it probably meant in the past. More emphasis and time and money are now being spent on music education in Muskegon Heights. It has assumed a more important place in the life of our high school. It is no longer looked upon as something for a few - for artists perhaps - but rather it is recognized as something of great value for us all. The cover design on this volume, which was drawn by Garnet Keefer, Art Editor, symbolizes grad- uating seniors who stand upon Muskegon Heights and look out upon the future. They look forward, with a song in their hearts, toward the success and achievement they hope to attain. With this in mind, the editors of the 1949 Oaks arranged for your plea- sure and information a "Record Album", containing records of the years 1948-49 at Muskegon Heights High School. We hope you like it. THE EDITORS Shirley Burdick Don Mason Garnet Keefer, Art Joan Griffes, Art y STKFF PHOTOGRAPHER W James Cobb Z. 1 .-..n.....s...... To Mrs. Harvath We Seniors of the Class of 1949 take this oppor- tunity publicly to recognize the outstanding work of Mrs. Anna Harvath, high school office clerk and secretary. Mrs. Harvath has been with us for ten years. She is a graduate of Muskegon Heights High School and, when she was a student here in the commercial department, was one of the best in her class. In addition to taking dictation and typing business letters for our Principal, Mr. C. F. Bolt, Mrs. Harvath keeps the office books and records straight and does a thousand and one little things all day long for both the students and the faculty. Best of all is the fact that she does everything efficiently, tactfully, courteously, quietly . . . in fact, too often we do not fully appreciate the fact that she is in the office, so smoothly does it generally operate. To top it all, Mrs. Harvath is undoubtedly one of the best liked, most popular persons in our school. She has found the secret to true friendship in sin- cerity of purpose and everyday helpfulness. We have chosen this way of telling Mrs. Harvath how we feel about her, and her chosen occupation.

The Oaks Story "The Oaks", senior class annual yearbook. is planned, written, and edited by seniors who are members of Mr. W. E. Murray's journalism classes tEnglish 12-1 and 12-2-I, as some schools call it.J But it requires the co-operation of a large number of persons to publish a 160-page book containing hundreds of photographs, drawings, written materials. and statistics. Let us tell you how it is done. To begin with, the work begins in September and gains momentum throughout the year until spring, when the "pressure" is on. A deadline has to be met-not one deadline as in the case of the school newspaper, "The Acorn" e-but many deadlines. one for each section of the book. First, a "theme" or motif has to be decided upon. This year it is "music." Then. a plan must be made for every page which will tie the book together, so to speak. Drawings in art work, writ- ten composition, and photographs in general must all center around the theme. Next, a plan for the taking of all photographs must be arranged, with a description of each photograph, its size, and place on the page clearly indicated. All writing assignments must then be given out and section editors named. The editors-in-chief of the book are usually chosen on the basis of ability, loyalty to the staff, and am- bition. Editors usually are requested to present to the staff a "dummy" for model yearbookl show- ing their ideas of how the book should look. Editors are directly responsible for the entire ap- pearance of the yearbook. After a rough sketch of the book is prepared. or format is prepared. In this of every story and photograph a final dummy dummy a proof is pasted. It is from this Final Dummy that the printers work. This brings us to the responsibility shared by our high school press. Under direction of Mr. C. F. Koehn, instructor, senior boys have charge of printing the annual. They lock up both the type and the cuts or engravings, and print them on the large press in the print shop. The practice they receive in doing this is very valuable. Many boys who wish to become printers can leam a great deal from the experience. To Mr. Koehn also goes our deepest appreciation. iw? 4 A PA .i..mr, Art editors, under direction of Miss Kathryn Keillor, instructor, prepare all omaments, line drawings, and other art work necessary, such as the design for the cover made this year by Garnet Keefer. A large number of photographs in The Oaks are taken each year by Mr. Iames V. Cobb, English and photography instructor. The Camera club and photography class often contribute pic- tures also. The fact that The Oaks won a high award at Michigan State College last year was partly owing to the high quality of our photo- graphs. All linotyping and engraving is dsne by pro- fessional shops. and the cover itself is manu- factured by a Chicago cover concern. The book is bound and put together in Lansing, and sent back here by express. So far as the business department of The Oaks is concerned, that, too, is an interesting story. For example, we have a man on the faculty who has been one of the most faithful in his loyalty to The Oaks. His name is Mr. Roy A. Peterman, head of the commerce department. He has been advisor of sales and distribution ever since 1921 -quite a record. His job is to guide the seniors in their sales. and to stimulate enthusiasm among the class members. The tact that we usually sell around 1500 copies of the annual is at least partly owing to Mr. Peterman's splendid co-oper- ation and support. The advertising department, which contributes at least one-fourth of the financial support neces- sary to publish a 160-page book like The Oaks, is supervised by Mr. C. F. Bolt. our principal. Mr. Bolt, as chairman of the Board of Publications, has always been a sincere and loyal member of The Oaks staff and all its undertakings. Senior students volunteer to sell advertising to local mer- chants and industries. The school owes much to Mr. Bolt for his help, and to the townspeople who help to support our publication. That, in a nutshell, is "The Oaks Story." It may be an "old, old story" to Mr. Murray and all of the advisors, but to every senior class it is a brand new, exciting experience which they would not trade for any other in high school. rf t: rv it T K The Editors Who Tell It Lelt to right-Downey, Cooper, Smith.

BOOKER Superintendent of Schools We, the Senior Class of 1949, wish to acknowledge our sincere gratitude to Mr. W. R. Booker, our superintendent of schools, for his splendid effort in behalf of better education in Muskegon Heights. In particular, we wish to thank him and the entire Board of Education for their part in making our lives in high school very happy and, we hope, very profitable. Mr. Booker received his master's degree from the University of Indiana. He once taught in the English department at Kalamazoo College. He also served successfully as superintendent of schools in Greenville, Michigan, before coming to Muskegon Heights. Here he has established a reputation through- out the state as a' capable, keen-minded executive, and a genuine student of educational affairs. Thanks for everything, Mr. Booker and members of the Board. We shall try to make you proud of us in the years to come. BOARD CFD P1'e.s'id1fn I LAWRENCE A. CARL Board oi Education Lawrence A.

BOLT We of the Graduating Class of 1949 wish to express our gratitude to Mr. C. F. Bolt, our principal, for his understanding and considerate efforts during our entire school days in senior high. Mr. Bolt this Iune has completed his twenty-eighth year as head of this high school. He was here when it Was built in 1921. Mr. Bolt is not a "native son" of Muskegon Heights, however. Born in Grand Haven, he was graduated by Grand Haven High school and the University of Michigan and University of Wisconsin. He was principal of the high school in Bismarck, N. D., before coming to Muskegon Heights. Mr. Bo1t's office is not elaborate, but it has served a good purpose. Those who have sat across from him have generally left the office with a lighter heart and a brighter outlook than they had when they entered. He discusses with the students everything from credits in class to family "problems". All graduates from 1922 until 1949 declare him to be a "swel1 guy." Can't You Read Between The Lines ? ENGLISH DEPARTMENT A clear understanding of English is necessary in all learning. Three years is compulsory tor all students: tour years is highly recommended. English is the study of grammar, spelling, lang- uage, rhetoric, and literature. Literature has broad aims and purposes for inspiration. cultivation of the senses, and accumulation of facts on liie itself, It is a record ot humanity's thoughts and feelings. It sets an ideal. Fourth year students have cr choice of English literature. advanced grammar, and journalism. Iournalism is the study oi news and its place in society and government. MISS IULIA A. SPRAGUE. A.B..

Each is a study of the records of man's achievements, past and present. The purposes are manifold, but uppermost is the aim of teaching students how to avoid the pitfalls and mistakes of the past, in the future. American history gives all students a back- ground ior good citizenship. It is therefore one of the required subjects in high school. Coupled with Senior Civics, American history is intended to make good Americans. World history helps us to become good citizens of the world-an im- portant idea in these days of speed and atomic energy. DAVID R. MC KENZIE.

In our high school at the present time industrial arts is limited to Woodshop. machine shop, and printing. It is the hope of many in this community that some day this department may be enlarged and improved to tit more adequately the needs of an industrial community such as Muskegon Heights. t Woodshop offers students an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of hand tool and machine wood working, and offers some experiences in some of the fields of wood working vocations. Machine shop offers a study in machine opera- tion, arc welding, and acetylene welding. Print- ing teaches the fundamentals ol the printing trade, and includes an interesting study ol the history ot printing. In addition, the high school print shop is responsible for printing all of the high school literature, forms, and extra-curricular publications like The Oaks and The Acom. CALVIN F.

Both subjects encourage independent thinking and reasoning. Most vocations depend to some degree, at least, upon science and math- ematics. . Sciences include chemistry, physics, and biolo- gy. Math courses offered here include such classes as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and advanced courses related to each. Students usually come to high school fairly well grounded in science from other schools. Central Iunior High, tor ex- ample, offers an excellent general science course, although general science does not count on credit toward a college entrance diploma. Science and math courses emphasize accuracy and precision.

In the junior and senior years gym can be elected it desired. Girls who are enrolled in physical education classes do a number of interesting things during the year. They participate in soccer, girls basket- ball, volley ball, and calisthenics. In the spring, on days when the weather is pleasant, they play baseball out of doors. Girls who show proficiency in physical work can work toward an mon- ogram award such as those letters given to the boys lor participation in athletic events. It re- quires l,000 points to win a monogram, a diffi- cult task, but one of which any girl may be proud when accomplished. MISS MAXINE COBB, B.S. Physical Education for Girls Booster Club Advisor Western Michigan College of Education BOYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION The boys' physical education department teach- es the student calisthenics, marching, basketball, passball, baseball. tennis, and track. Intramural games in basketball, passball, and baseball do a great deal to interest the average student. The spirit of competition involved gives the boys added enthusiasm for the game while at the same time it builds strong bodies and helps to produce alertness. All sophomore boys are required to take physi- cal education, and senior boys ever since the last war have also been required to enroll for physical education. The majority ol boys enjoy the work.

The girls also leam much about good management in the home, how to buy and to work economically, how to serve food artist- ically, and how to plan meals which will tit the requirements of adequate nutrition for the family. The cafeteria is under direction ot Advanced Foods IV classes. They plan the menu and see to it that everything is carried out on time. MISS MAXINE FENCE, B.S. Foods and Cafeteria Second Semester River Falls State Teachers College The Stout Institute CLOTHING Probably one ot the most useful courses in school, at least for girls, is clothing. It is by all means profitable in the home as well as in ' in- dustry, and at the same time gives the girls a chance to exercise their creative abilities. In addition to learning how to sew and use a machine effectively, the student leams about textiles, how to choose patterns, and the mater- ials f ' or certain patterns. The student learns how to model and to select clothes best suited to themselves. Each spring the clothing class reset p n s an annual style show and tea for the parents faculty and students. Foods classes also assist in the style show. It has become one ot our high school's important annual events. CLASSICAL Senior Class AFTER GRADUATION DAY By The Class of '49 X f Kenyan, .. C ..

You're The Tops VALEDICTORIAN Iune Schmidt The Valedictorian and Salutatorian of Muske- gon Heights High school are those members of the Senior Class who, by virtue of their scholar- ship over a period of four years rank highest, and second highest, respectively, among their classmates. To win either award is looked upon by school officials and townspeople as two of the highest honors which can come to students. The day when "honor students" were so-called "grinds" who did little else except study, is long past. Today the boys and girls who win the honors almost necessarily have- to be all-round, active. aggressive boys and girls because of the nature of modern education. The system used in our high school for choos- ing these two people is based upon a point-sys- tem, allowing 97 points for an "A" grade, 91 points for a "B" grade, 85 points for a "C" grade, and 79 points for a "D" grade. Grades used are final averages for each semester, for four consecutive years. Generally speaking, those who have received these high honors in high school, have gone on to college, or business, or industry, and have continued their splendid work. To give an exam- ple of how difficult it is to become Valedictorian, SALUTATORIAN Lyle Shaw we can cite the present winner, Iune Schmidt. Iune received "A" grades for final averages in every subject she took in high school, except one. In this subject, she received a "B". Last year the same thing was true. In view of the fact that "A" is usually regarded as being between 95 and 100 points, this perfonnance is particularly outstanding. Some of the highest honor students of recent years have been: 1948, Douglas Cutler and Bar- bara Culver: 1947, Delores Bleich and Margaret Forrest: 1946, Betty Yonkers and Harriet Hague: 1945 Teryl Shaw and Geraldine Schatz: 1944, Robert Wenger and lack Wiesenburger: 1943, Harriet Risk and Charles Pearmang 1942, Lillian Scott and Arthur LeRoux: 1941, Lorraine Coston and Rosemary Hill: 1940, Rachel Hiltner and Tom Begleyg 1939, Nellie Leisman and lean Ruiter: 1938, Harriette Lundberg and Iohn Thomas: 1937, Betty Sikkenga and Paul Starks: 1936, Nelson Damm and Doris DeCosta, 1935, Flora Anderson and Lois Bolt: 1934, Eleanor Sikkenga and Arland Walkleyz 1933, Gwenivere Cole and Irene Schin- ze1: 1932, Eunice Warneke and Leota Grcrndjeang 1931, Aneita Auburn and C.

Gerald lacobson, president of the Student Council this past year, has proved to be the guid- ing spirit behind the student body. He was ably assisted by lack Bramble, vice-president, and Betty Newald, secretary. I. W. Verduin was again advisor. The Council of 1948-49 spon- sored many dances throughout the school year. The Council also made possible the purchase of new uniforms for the cheer- leaders. One of the most import- ant events of the year was the Inter-school Council assembly held in Benton Harbor and Grand Haven, and the State Conference of Student Councils held in Lansing. Page Yrwcrzty-fozw There are numerous duties of the Student Council, only to mention a few such as appoint- ing a member to the athletic board, and selecting the cheer- leaders. The Council performs the necessary tasks of student government, and through its members, does the school as well as its student members, a great service. Serving on the Student Council is a high honor in school, comparable to serv- ing on important civic bodies in a community, state, or nation. lt is good experience and helps the students to learn how demo- cracy really Works.

The Muskegon Chronicle, and the Muskegon Heights Record throughout the entire year has provided an in- teresting project for the students of the journalism class. These responsibilities have helped stu- dents to develop qualities of in- itiative, tact, and co-operation. At the same time, the published news articles have gone a long way toward keeping Muskegon Heights High school on the local "news map." All this practical Work pre- pares the journalism students for work on The Oaks, the sen- ior yearbook, most ambitious of all projects undertaken during the year. Iournalism, however, is not a vocational subject. lt is strictly a course in "practical English composition", emphasizing news values and the place of newspapers in American gov- ernment.

Tryouts for "Ever Since Eve" began the week of March 21, but final decisions and organization of committees was not com- plete when this section of The Oaks went to press. Written by Ryerson Clements, the play was a riot of fun, a merry-go- round of laughter when problems of news- paper life and family life did not always mix. In the end, of course, it all came out all right. All of the members of the cast displayed a great deal of talent and showed the results of weeks of coaching by Miss Iulia Royse, Miss Charlotte Wet- teroth, and E. W. Gillaspy.

As has been customary, four different contests were pre- sented. Taking first and second places in dramatic declamation were Paul Calloway and Pauline Johnson, respectively. In origin- al oratory, Betty Downey and Max Daniels took the honors. In extemporaneous speaking, Ken- neth Cutler captured a first place, and Paul Scholtens, se- Page Seventy-eight cond. In oratory, Ioan Newblom took first and Marilyn Thunfors second. Everyone constituting the for- ensics program gave a sincere and conscientious performance. Their ability to place themselves in the positions of characters they protrayed was outstand- ing. Coaches for the forensics contest were Miss Iulia A. Royse and Mr. E. W. Gillaspy. Iudges for the event were chosen from among Iunior and Senior High faculty members. "Resolved: That We Shall" . . Colburn, Cutler, Scholtens Debaters of Muskegon Heights High school have an outstand- ing record for the year, consid- ering the fact that not one of the members of the team had previous experience. Debating for the first and se- cond affirmative squads were Gail Colburn and Ken Cutler. Taking the negative first and second argument were Eugene Fischer and Paul Scholtens. The opening debate of the season was with Muskegon, and Muskegon Heights got off to a flying start by winning both sides of the question. Lansing Sexton was next, but unfortun- ately, the local teams lost both arguments in this in s t a n c e. Against Hastings, Muskegon Heights scored again by taking both sides in a dual-meet. In the debate scheduled with Fremont. both sides forfeited to the Heights teams. Then came the tournament! Muskegon Heights debated Whitmore and West Branch, at Traverse City, and Won both times. In the fourth finals our debaters met Grand Rapids Union, and lost. The question debated this year Was: "Resolved, that the United Nations be revised into a present world government." It was a timely subject and one which very likely did much to inform both speakers and audi- ences wherever it was dis- cussed. All in all, we really have to admit our team was out- standing and deserves a great deal of credit for their excellent Cand hardl work. Coaches were Miss Iulia A. Royse and E. W. Gillaspy. x Page Seventy mne Cur Aim Is To Boost . or Bust! Back Row: Teulirig, DeBard, Popelar, Anderson, Carl, Sletsema, McDowell, Ziegler.

The purpose of the club is to give the members a wider reading experience, to acquaint them with new au- thors, and to encourage them to have libraries of their own. The only requirements are that each member pay twenty-five cents each month and choose the book he would like from the lists. Several of the teachers, too, are enjoying its opportuni- ties. These books are the best Page Eighty-four of the past and modern litera- ture. These books are especially of interest to teen-agers, and se- lected for them. The Teen-age Book Club is not fully organized yet to have meetings, but many of its mem- bers have exchanged their books. It's a great opportunity for all and has a world of possi- bilities as an educational form of club activity. No officers were elected this year.

BBAMBLE Senior Haliback THE ANNUAL "CLASSIC" For the tirst time this season, the Big Reds of Muskegon felt the sting of defeat. The game took place on Tiger home soil for the first time in the history ot the two schools. The Tiger eleven sprang to the attack early as Howell, Tiger All-State haltback, slashed oli considerable gains. He then passed to Zorn who was downed on the six. Bramble, Howell, and Felcoski pounded the Muskegon line to no avail. In the second period, Douglas Iacobson passed to Zom. Interference was called, together with a holding penalty, and the ball advanced to the one, where Mike Strach carried it over for the touchdown. lSee photo! It was Sneed and Zorn on the line, Howell and Bramble in the backfield, who stood out. For Muskegon, Babbitt, Lipton, Rederstorlf, and Dekker played well.

The Tiger line held the Cougar offense in check. Next, a G. R. Union eleven held the locals scoreless in the first half, but the Bengals unleashed their scoring power, and flattened the Unionites 24 to 0 before the final whistle blew. Making it three in a row, the Tiger Cubs trounced Holland 19-0. End Bob Smith was the defensive star in this particular game. Outstanding running and passing led the Tigers to a 26-7 triumph over Grand Rapids Creston. Lineman Ray Gauthier stood out on defense. The Heights Tigers handed Coach David R. McKenzie his 100th victory by defeating the Kalamazoo Maroons 13 to 6. Giving the Cubs a good battle. the Maroon Giants were finally beaten by team work and the old "fighting spirit" of the Tigers. Paul Bailey was the star on defense for the Reserves in a 19 to 0 victory over the Grand Haven Reserves. Bailey ran 10 and 70 yards to score on two occasions. Benton Harbor broke the victory string at six-straight, as the two Tiger elevens battled to a 7 to 7 tie. Ray Gauthier again stood out on defensive play. Ben- ton Harbor went on to win the Reserve Conference trophy. Paul Bailey ran 91 yards with brilliant blocking, permitting him to score. Bob Walker's place-kick tied the score. Fast-running Heights backs rolled over the Grand Haven reserves and scored a second win over the Blue and Gold, 25 to 6. Bob Smith nabbed a 10 yard pass from Bailey to score, and Smith then ran 50 yards for the second touch- down.

When the State Athletic Committee declared LeRoy Green, star center, a non-resident according to their definition of a "transfer" pupil, Green lost his chance to participate in athletics of any kind for 10 weeks. The team has to forfeit the Championship by a Confer- ence decision. As things turned out, Kalamazoo Cen- tral won the State Class A Champion- ship in Lansing in March, and the Southwest Conference Championship went to Muskegon and Benton Harbor, who were tied as runnersup behind the Tigers. The Tiger quintet was led by Bob Iohnson, son of Coach Iohnson: and Gerald Iacobson, two of the top tor- wards in the Conference. Frank Howell and Charles Zorn, at guards: and Le- Roy Green, at center. completed the five first string players. Others who played a major part in winning the title were Iohn Nedeau, Olis Hunter, Douglas Ia- cobson, Eldon Shaffer and Iack Bramble. Green will be the only varsity first string player returning next season, al- though he will be assisted by Bobby Long, Ron McKenzie, and a number of good boys coming up from the Reserve Team, including Dick Valuck, Gordon Iohnson fanother son of Coach Iohnsonb, and others.

Although the record of the Little Tigers is not too impressive, it is not a real indication of the real strength of the team during 1948-49. Many of the games were well played, hard fought games. At all times the Tigers showed spirit and determination to win, up to the final whistle. Richard Valuck and Ierry Moeller, co-captains of the team, and Gordon Iohnson, formed the back-bone of the squad. These boys scored most of the points during the season, as well as putting up a good, consistent fight on offense and defense. Together, these three scored a total of 268 points of which Ierry Moeller accounted for lll, followed by Dick Valuck and Gordon Iohnson. Others who will be counted on next season to make the varsity squad are: Bob Smith, Don Glover, Robert tShortyl Walker, and Iim Jackson. These boys, along with the rest of the second team and the varsity reserves, hope to become members of the regular varsity five in 1949-50.

Puffs Nam ty-figlli On Your Mark, Get Set, Go I TRACK Last year the Tiger thinclads had the best year in the history ot the school. Coach David R. Mc- Kenzie's boys won the Regionals and the South- western Conference title, and in doing so, defeated Muskegon for the iirst time since the two schools first engaged in competition in track and field events. The year 1948 was "the" year so tar as the track team at least was concemed. ' The 1948 squad was a well balanced team, with some outstanding men in every event. Tom lohnson set a new Class A State shot-put record in the state finals at Lansing, and since then has established a reputation in University of Michigan football and track circles. The Tigers also had three ot the lastest dash men in the Conference last year: Bill McGahee, Herman Ivory, and Roger Veurink. Don Walters. who has returned this season, set a new record in the low hurdles at the tri-angular meet in Allegan. Because of the tact the yearbook goes to press before the end oi school, our predictions tor 1949 are limited. However, as we write this, a squad of some 50 boys have turned out for practice. With such veterans as Charles Zorn. last season's top 440 man: Frank Bernard, Dan Felcoski, Walters, Iesse Iones, a transfer from Muskegon: Clarence Schmidt, Francis Mitchell, Iohnny Terrell, Mel Camp, and others on the list, the team looks cap- able at the start. Ray Becker and Iim Essenberg also are back for 1949. Among the so-called "rookies" are Bob Smith, who appears to have the makings of a top quarter-miler: and Evans, a little stocky lellow, apparently will do well as a sprinter. Old-timers like Bernard may change their position, although it looks as though he will stick to the 440. Cole, a crackerjack half-miler has his eye on the school record which he came within two seconds ol shattering last season Can all-time low oi 2:04l. Iohn Swett as well as Felcoski will try to step into Big Tom Iohnson's big shoes land we know these boys won't have too much trouble getting into those shoes, strictly speakingll All in all, it adds un to a good year, perhaps another splendid one.

Under the watchful eye of Coach Del Firme, tennis coach of the squad of '49, a fairly large group of boys began the season with high hopes but little exper- ience. Only two lettermen returned to the team from last season, Bob Moore, and Bob Long. Moore, who is the team's No. l singles player, and Bob -Long work superbly in doubles play. It may be interest- ing to some students to know that young Moore started learning the game at Central playground ten- nis court not many summers ago. Mr. Moore, Bob's father, played with him night after night. lt is one way that many other boys could learn the game, too. At the time of this writing, about 20 boys were "regulars" in after- noon practice sessions, although it was expected more would turn out later. Coach Firme was hop- ing for the best, in April, the same as the boys, although he did ven- ture to say that there were no Iack Kramers or Pancho Gonzaleses on the team as yet. CMaybe by May or Iune a Budge or Tilden might turn up.J New rookies who apparently have ability include: Dick Gram- mel, Ken Cutler, and Bob Barding, all of whom had some experience last season. Tennis is a game which should become more popular here. It is a game two can play for years to come. Top Row - Keglovltz, McGregor, Doll, Boelkms, Iohnston, Mcxnsf1e.d, C. Long.
