Sophomores got off to a late start this
year, waiting until early spring to organize
their class. They met one afternoon in the
study hall with Mr. Bolt, principal, and
made up a slate of candidates. They

Student Council is an organization representative of "de-
mocracy in action". Through the Student Council, students
have an opportunity to express their opinions on the adminis-
tration of school affairs. Learning to govern themselves is one
of the most important things students can learn.
Extra-curricular activities, as
well as activities cmd projects
accomplished in connection
with the work of the regular
classroom study, are important
factors in a student's education.
Activities help a student's so-
cial development. Membership
in all of the clubs offers exper-
ience in discussion, the making
of quick decisions, experience
in parliamentary procedure, and
speaking in public.
Among the many opportuni-
ties offered in this high school
are: membership in clubs, stu-
dent council, debate: participa-
tion in band, orchestra, glee
club, choir, dramatics produc-
tions, forensics: membership on
the high school newspaper staff
of "The Acorn" and the year-
book staff of "The Oaks": selling
Oaks advertising: style show in
the home economics depart-
ment: home talent or amateur
shows: intramural athletics, and

The first Student Council was organized in 1933 and was
much different from the present-day Council. All class advisors
were members of the Council, and attended every meeting.
Later, upon suggestion of faculty members, the students decided
to make it strictly a "Student" Council. Officers of the first
council were: Clement Gilbert, president: Nelson Damm, vice-
president: and Flora Anderson, secretary.
Today, the Student Council has broadened its activity. It
helps to better the relationship of the student to school life.
Officers today are: President, Shirley Newaldg vice-president,
Douglas Murray, secretary, Carol Sekeres. Iohn Wood was
appointed secretary the second semester to fill the post va-
cated by Miss Sekeres Who resigned. George Andree is finance
Iames W. Verduin has been advisor of the Student Council
for six years. The students and the entire school owe Mr.
Verduin a real debt of gratitude for his splendid co-operation.

The Heights High Herald, a literary magazine, monthly,
was the first publication. It appeared in 1922. That same year.
The Oaks, senior class yearbook, made its initial appearance.
The Oaks continued to increase in popularity until the present
day, when more than 1200 copies are sold annually and the
book recognized as one of the best, with 168 pages of interesting
information. This 1951 annual cost about 54,000 to produce.
In 1930, the Heights High Herald was discontinued in favor
of a new form of publication, a student newspaper, which was
named "The Acorn" by the new advisor, W. E. Murray, who
had joined the faculty English department in the fall of 1930.
For eight or ten years all of the work on both The Acorn and
Oaks was done after school hours. Six o'clock in the afternoon
was "quitting time" for the editors. Today, much of the work
is done in journalism classes. All publications have been
printed under guidance of C. F. Koehn, printing instructor. The
printing "can't be beat."
The subscriptions and advertising staffs for The Oaks
had a successful season again this year. Biggest regret
was the loss of our "star" salesman, Mr. R. A. Peterman,
subscription advisor for the last 30 years. C. F. Bolt and
several members of the faculty took over in Mr. Peterman's
absence, however, and completed direction of a sale of 50
pages of advertising and 1200 copies of The Oaks.
Twenty teams sold advertising this year, each team
being assigned to a definite business area. Businessmen
were, as usual, very co-operative. The good-will evidenced
by them was worth every cent spent for the ad itself.
Subscription captains were Shirley Newald and Mari-
lyn Bomers for the girls, and lack Keglovitz and Iunior
Meyers for the boys. At this writing, nobody knows which
team won, but it was a "hot" race.

Absent when picture was taken: Newald, Shelkey, Grant, Souser, Riley, and Dopiel. These students really had "pep"
when it cume to sales.
This year the debaters of Muskegon Heights High school
continued to uphold the outstanding record Which has been
established over the past years.
Debaters opened the season for 1950-51 by defeating Grand
Rapids Union on both sides. ln the next round, the opponent
was Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills, and a split decision was the
result of the contest. In the third round both our teams were
victorious over Grand Rapids South. We closed the season with
a split decision over Battle Creek.
Once again, therefore, for the fourth consecutive year,
Heights High debaters won six debates, qualifying for the State
Championship race. We were eliminated by Lansing Sexton,
and it may be of considerable interest to note that for the last
four years, the team which has defeated Muskegon Heights,
went on to Win the State title. At this Writing, Lansing Sexton
looks like a probable state champion for 1950-51.

"CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN"
The Senior play centered around the
life of Frank Gilbreth, among whose
accomplishments was the rearing of a
dozen children on an efficiency pro-
gram. The play was well received by
large audiences in spite of the post-
ponement owing to ct severe snowstonn
which paralyzed the community.
Much credit is due Miss Iulia A.

The Library club Was first organized in October, 1928. Mrs.
Parker began the Work and Miss Iulia DeYoung carried on. First
officers were: President, Daisy Gilmore: vice-president, Agusta
Hutson: secretary, Tillie Mabritep treasurer, Marion Shupp.
Purpose of the club as originally organized was to serve
the faculty and the student body efficiently and to inspire the
love of reading, to develop capable library assistants, and to
promote a friendly library atmosphere. Motto is "Grow and
The Library staff of today has the following duties to per-
form: assist in the preparation of books for circulation by typing

Heights Hi-Y club began an enthusiastic program October
9, 1922, after re-organizing from the previous year. At that
time, the new Bible study books were distributed and plans
for the year were discussed. At the next meeting, officers
were elected as follows: President, Dan Kelly, vice-president,
Lewis Fitch, secretary, Stan Burggraaf, treasurer, Kenneth Ny-
strom. Paul Meader was the club advisor in those days, and
did a "swell" job with the boys, many of whom are outstanding

Y-Teens, a high school organization co-sponsored by the
local YWCA, has changed a great deal since the first club in
1921. It was first known as the Girl Reserves organization, and
changed its name in recent years to "Y-Teens".
The social calendar of the Y-Teens this last year has been
crowded with many activities. They have sponsored two
dances, "The Pigskin Punt", a football dance, and a spring
"dress-up" dance which had not yet been named when The
Oaks went to press.
Y-Teens also sponsored a series of meetings on boy-and-girl
relationships. A rummage sale, a baked-goods sale, a faculty
tea, Christmas caroling, and a tea for senior girls helped to
bring the session to a very successful close.
One of the first clubs to be organized in our school Was
the French club. It was under the capable supervision of Miss
Mary Lichtenaeur in 1924. The aim of the club was to create
interest and promote good fellowship among students taking
French. The primary purpose of the club today is much the
First officers of the club Were: Richard Geroux, president:
Maurice Wilsie, vice-president: Rebecca Redmon, secretary: and
Dorothy Powell, treasurer.
Present officers are: Bob Cutler, president: Sandra Ambrose,

was the founder of the group.
Activities of the Spanish club have included dances, pro-
grams for the Muskegon County Tuberculosis sanitorium, booths
for refreshments at the football games, and an observance of
Spanish Was taught here for three years before the club
was organized in 1948. Each year the club has added a few
more things to its list of many achievements. The club has, of
course, a serious purpose also. A better understanding of the
Spanish people and their customs, as Well as Spanish culture
and world peace underlies the aim of the club. Any student
who Wishes may apply for membership.

Officers in this year's Booster club are: Betty Seng, presi-
dent: Virginia Davies, secretary: and Iean Grant, treasurer.
To join the club there are only two requirements: first, the
student wishing to join must have a "B" average and, second,
must have 500 points in girls' athletics. Both are "easy" to get.
The Booster club promotes school athletics by selling candy,
hot-dogs, potato chips, gum, and coffee, at the football games.
The profit goes to the school.
The club also sponsors the Christmas Formal every year.
This year it was called "The Snowball Dance" -funny thing
is, "The Snowball Dance" is a tradition from 'way back when!
Regular business meetings were held on first and third
Wednesdays of each month. Miss Maxine Cobb is advisor.
The main work of the art classes this year revolved around
the painting of murals for the high school. Plans have been
made and it is possible that before this school year is out, the
murals will be painted on the walls of the corridors. Miss
Kathryn Keillor is the art instructor. Her work has been highly
praised throughout Michigan. Many of her students have
created some outstanding work.
Students working on the murals for the main hall include
Kathleen Poe, Tom Bringedahl, and Dick Welton. Those plan-
ning the mural tor the library are: Doreen Tobey, Geraldine
Gilbert, Marian Shelkey, and Gena Dines. The cafeteria murals
are being created by Carol Williamson, Eldonna Peterson, and
Other work done by art students includes posters for con-
tests, composition, and art for The Acorn and Oaks, senior class
publications. The Oaks staff Wishes to thank Miss Keillor and
the entire art class for their splendid help. It is virtually impos-
sible to produce an outstanding yearbook without the help of
The finest of choral literature is studied and performed by
the A Cappella Choir. R. Maynard Buck, director, selects the
members of the choir on the basis of tryouts held at the begin-
ning of each semester.
The Choir performs many times during the year, for
community as well as school functions. Formal concerts at
Christmas and during the spring semester are presented an-
nually. For several years, the Choir has maintained a superb
position. It is held in high acclaim by all who have heard it, a
fact which is a credit to the choir members, to the director, and
to our school.
This year a spring Festival-clinic was held here, during
which the choir and orchestra combined for a day and evening
of thrilling musical experience under a guest conductor and
other artists. It is hoped that this Festival will develop into an
annual event of interest to all of this area.
About 20 of the Choir formed a group known as the "Chor-
aliers", who often sing where a larger group is not convenient.
This group has become extremely popular because of its many
"Fred Waring" possibilities.
Under the direction of R. Maynard Buck, the Glee club was
developed primarily as a vocal training organization. lt has
become a real performing group as more and more girls have
indicated an interest in this type of training.
The Glee club went to the Holland Tulip Festival along
with the A Cappella Choir last year and also performed at this
year's Christmas concert of the choir. The Glee club welcomes
all interested girls to their organization. The Glee club meets
every other school day. It is recognized as a good starting
place for Choir members to tryout and to train for the future.
However, the Glee club stands on its own merits and turns in
a splendid performance.
Our marching and concert band of more than 100 members thrilled
and entertained thousands of persons during the year, under the capable
direction of Paul G. Liddicoat.
Half-time performances at the grid games provided many highlights,
Such as a review of present and past Broadway shows, and a show pub-
licizing Muskegon Heights industries. The Annual Heights Nite show
proved a big success, and the Spring Concert, in April, drew hundreds
of interested music lovers into the auditorium.
The school, and the community as Well, can be proud of Muskegon
Heights High school band. As a unit, it has marched hundreds of miles
during the year for a variety of community celebrations. Hours of prac-
tice often go unnoticed. We take this opportunity to commend the band
and its director.
The football half-time shows enjoyed
by Heights fans are originated and di-
rected by Paul Liddicoat, our versatile
band leader. He is a graduate of the
U. of M., where he was outstanding in

with the school and na-
tion's colors are: Fritz

The MHHS Orchestra, also directed by
R. Maynard Buck, is composed of some 35
members. It was organized to promote an
understanding of the many line composi-
tions. The compositions Written for this
medium of expression provide ample
opportunity for the high school instrumen-
talist. Most important, perhaps, is that
such practice helps to expand their
musical knowledge and appreciation.

The orchestra presents two formal con-
certs a year. It also plays for other
school functions such as plays and assem-
bly programs. A string ensemble formed
from members of the orchestra perform for
many community and school functions.

Re-Caps of Conference Games
Sept. 29. Tigers 18: Holland 7. Iackson, Ghezzi,
and Bailey each scored a touchdown in this game
to give the Tigers their first Southwestern Con-
ference win. From this point on, the Tigers looked
good. Iackson gained most yardage for an in-
dividual: Ghezzi supplied the necessary drive
when called upon.
Oct. 20. Tigers 32: Grand Haven 7. In the
annual meeting with their oldest rival, the Tigers
showed their sportsmanlike affection by trimming
Grand Haven's Blue and Gold Buccaneers to the
tune of 32 to 7. Bailey, Iackson, Ghezzi, Camp-
smith, and Hall all scored for the Tigers. It was
the Tigers' second conference win. The line ap-
peared to be shaping up in good style.
Oct. 27. Tigers 31: Benton Harbor 0. It was
close to Halloween, but proved a nightmare only
for ill-tated Benton Harbor. It seemed as if all
the powers of destruction, backed up by a temp-
est, suddenly descended upon our downstate ri-
vals. Iackson and Bailey rambled almost at will up
and down the Benton Harbor gridiron, as Douglas
Murray, Tiger quarterback, maneuvered the Tiger
machine into advantageous positions time after
time. The powerful Tiger line tore Benton Harbor

Oct. 13. Tigers 7: Kalamazoo 19. In a rough
and tumble, hard-fought game at Kalamazoo, the
Tigers received their first real set-back in Con-
ference competition. Iackson, small but durable,
lugged the leather 40 times by himself, averaging
more than five yards a try. Yet the Tigers did
not win. One or two bad breaks of the game
allowed Kazoo's fast backs to get away for
touchdowns. It was one of those nights when
either team could have come out victorious. Those
who did not see the game immediately under-
rated the potential of the Tiger powerhouse the
rest of the season, to their dismay on November
Nov. 11. Tigers 13: Muskegon 6. Driving
through the snow and cold, a strong, alert, and
powerful Heights Tiger football eleven captured
their tenth Southwestem Conference champion-
ship by defeating a determined Muskegon Big
Red eleven 13 to S on Phillips field. The Tigers
held the lead all the way, with Doug Murray
calling a quarterback sneak, making it good in
the second quarter to give the Tigers the edge.
In the third quarter, Bailey went the distance for
the Tigers and Ieter kicked the extra point to make
it 13 to 0. The Big Reds scored their lone tally in
the third period, but threatened continually until
the final whistle. It was a great victory for a
Heights team which improved tremendously. Much
credit must go to a battle-weary, battered bunch

for the state meet held May 27.
A Heights track and field team has not been defeated
in a dual meet in three and one-half years, to date of this
writing, March, 1951.
When The Oaks went to press, Coach D. R. McKenzie
had issued a call for team members and was preparing for
the opening intrasquad meet of the season, The Orange
and Black annual meet. Snow was in the air and it was
still questionable Whether the meet could be held.

Second row: Bailey, Harrington, Walthers, Iohnson, Meister, Pattison, Sutton, Lambrix.
Front row: Kerley. Boles. Carlson, Cutler, Meisen, Mauch, Fortenbacher.
With ll matches scheduled for this season, Coach Del
Firme is in hopes of another successful net season. This
year Coach Firme must shape his team around five return-
ing lettermen. His summer tennis program has proved a
Returning lettermen are Bob Cutler, Bob Mauch, Don
Talmadge, Art Hartman, and Iack Boles. Last season, the
team had a splendid record of seven Won, four lost, with
the most impressive part of the season being the last. The
Regional Championship, in which Benton Harbor, Lansing
Eastern, and Lansing Sexton, as well as Muskegon Heights,
participated, was held at Holland.
At the start of the 1951 season, Bob Cutler, Bob Mauch,
and Don Talmadge appeared to be the leading prospects
for starting positions. Coach Firme stated early in the sea-
son that he expects to have a good team, probably as good
as any in the Conference, except for Holland or Kalamazoo,
perhaps, who have seasoned net squads.

years of age and have an eighth grade education you are entitled to become a beautician. A 850.00 dis-
count will be given to the readers of The Oaks of 1951 if enrolled on or before September 1, 1951
