Our music department
has been improving fast
in recent years under
guidance ot Mr. Liddicoat
and Mr. Buck. All groups
rated high in contests.
Speech and dramatics,
as well as radio, provide
students with ample op-
portunity for seli-expres-
sion. Directors are Miss
Boyse, Mr. Gillaspy, and
Reading for profit and
for recreation opens doors
to new lands, new exper-
iences, and new oppor-
tunities. Miss Kidwell is
our friendly librarian.

One of the most progressive
moves made in Muskegon
Heights in years was the con-
struction of the filtration plant
at Lake Michigan in the later
l930's. A low-lift and high-lift
pump system brings water to
our city by gravity from a hill-
Muskegon Heights rates high
among the leading industrial areas
of Michigan. Our factories are
among the best equipped and most
productive in the nation. We also
have a fine school system. Our stu-
dents stand high in colleges and
universities, in business, and in in-
dustry when they leave. A new post
office, filtration plant, and improved
law enforcement system are among
our recent accomplishments.
Yet, despite all the things we
have, there are things we lack: a
civic auditorium, a beautiful city
park, a hotel, a new city hall, sta-
tues, a museum, a Little Theater,
and many other cultural advantag-
es many cities now have. Some day,
who knows, these dreams may be-
It is up to us.

A CITY OF
Although the police de-
partment has been re-
modeled, the remainder of
the City Hall is antiquated.
A new building would be
an asset to our commun-
Our city government, the "mayor-
council" type, is headed by Mayor
Basil QMickeyl O"Grady. Other elec-
ted officials are: city treasurer, city
assessor, city judge, three council-
men-at-large and three city council-
men, one from each ward.
The city council meets on the se-
cond and fourth Monday of the
month. One of the functions of the
council is to approve the appoint-
ments of the Mayor. These appoint-
ments include city attorney, city
clerk, city superintendent, engineer,
health officer, chief of police, chief
of the fire department, five members
of the board of review, two consta-
bles, and members of the city recre-
ation and planning commissions.
Our council has always been
forward-looking and sincere. Our
police department today is one of
the finest in the state. So is our fire
department. We have improved
streets, new homes, and efficient
management. In the future we hope
to have many other things, such as
a civic auditorium, parks, and im-
provements to make this a better
