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 Miss Wetteroth. 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- top. 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- come realities. It is up to us.

A CITY OF PROGRESSIVE GOOD GOVERNMENT 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- ity. 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 city.
