BU Y, BU Y DAY THE EWS STAFF This is only one of the typical scenes in the journalism room this year. Everyone always had work to complete for the various newspapers around town. The same staff, which was elected last September, was used throughout the entire year. Each member of the staff was assigned to a certain activity. During the year, they reported all of the news. This staff provided news for The Muskegon Chronicle, Muskegon Heights Rec- ord, and our school paper, The Acorn. The larg- est project of the year was this annual. The young journalists all contributed their efforts to meeting the deadlines. We wish to thank the entire school for co- operating. We, the members of this staff, sincerely hope that you enjoy the contents of the 1955 Oaks as much as we enjoyed publishing it. FOREWORD This year we of Muskegon Heights High School are very fortunate to have two new additions to our school, a new gymnasium and a new cafeteria, already completed. At the time this yearbook went to press, plans were being considered for a North Wing, which is expected to consist mainly of the Music and Manual Departments, and more classrooms. Since the planning and constructing of these wings were in progress during our senior year, we graduates thought it very appropriate to use the theme, "Building for the Future" for this yearbook. We all realize, of course, the importance these new additions will play in years to come, and we consider it fortunate that they are be- ing constructed. We seniors only regret that we won't be able to use these facilities as much as the incoming students. Nevertheless, we can truly say we received the utmost of satisfaction from our school years in the "old" building. We feel deeply honored, however, that the construction took place during the year when we were seniors. We were able to choose "building," therefore, as our theme. ln conclusion, we Graduates of 1955 would like to say that we hope all the future students of Heights High enjoy these facilities as much as we know we would have enjoyed them. May they enjoy their years at Heights High as much as wel Photograph Contributed by Dorman Post Afternoon Along the Dunes Typical of the many tamiliar scenes along the beaches which fringe the lakes ol Western Michigan is the splendid photograph ot the dunes shown here. Graceful trees, tufts of tall grass, both emerging from the mounds of sugary sand, blend with sky and clouds into a pleasing whole. A hint of the ever-present pre- vailing westerlies bends the grass ever so gently but constantly piles the pulls ol tleecy clouds into great cumulus mountains in the distance. Something soft, yet something rugged, shows through every detail of the scene . . . and as the sun sinks below the horizon and disappears into the lake like a great ball ot molten gold, a solitary gull wings its way to rest and voices ot swimmers and picnickers break the serenity ot the scene. Tribute to A Teacher and Friend, Mrs. Florence Murray We, the Seniors of Nineteen Hundred Fifty-five, to show our deep appreciation for your work done here at Heights High, fondly dedicate this volume of the OAKS to you, Mrs. Florence Murray, our kindhearted and understanding friend, fine coun- selor, and outstandingly popular teacher. You received your B.S. degree from Northern Michigan College in Marquette. You began your teaching career as a teacher of girls' physical ed- ucation, at the age of nineteen, in Petoskey. Heights was very proud to receive you in 1929 as a teacher of physical education. Later you became a teacher of English, a subject which you have always loved. Recently, you became our counselor here. Already you have aided many young persons, by your guidance and every-day helpfulness, toward the goal of life which they seemed best qualified to attain. We are all sincerely grateful for your interest and loyalty to us and our school. We Wish you the best of luck in all things for the future. M Morton, Campbell, Sutton, Carl tPresidentJ, Strand, Faust, Pearman, Booker CSuperintendent of Schoolsl. LAYS THE PLANS We, the members ot the Graduating Class ot l955, take this opportunity ottered us by the edi- tors of our yearbook to express publicly our deepest appreciation to the men on our Board ot Education and others who are responsible tor the expansion and progress ot the Muskegon Heights High School and educational system. To the Board members whose job it is to worry and shoulder the burden ot plans and details, we say a gracious "thanks" To the tax-payers ot Muskegon Heights and surrounding areas who make expansion possible in a material way, we also are very grateful. We say this sincerely, even though it is true that most ot us will be leaving in Iune and may not ever enjoy some ot the advantages which a new gymnasium and a new North Wing will eventually provide. We are proud ot Heights High and proud of ourselves, and we are proud ot our Board of Education which has done every- thing possible to make our high school years profitable and pleasurable. We regret that we were not able to become better acquainted personally with our Board members. We feel as though we know them, how- ever, as well as other school officials. They will remain in our memory as they are today-a fine group ot civic-minded, progressive business and professional leaders in our community. By their own actions, they have set us a goal and an example. In addition, they have done their utmost to help us get the very best out of our educational opportunities. We of the Class of 1955 of Muskegon Heights High School salute you, Superintendent W. R. Booker! As we stand ready to go out from these halls to take our places in the world, we pause a moment to reflect upon a few things which often escaped our notice as we went along our busy way from class to class, year after year. Now that we are nearly finished with our twelve years of schooling, we are impressed, as we look back, with the fact that our education was a much bigger enterprise than we thought, We are able to see that much more clearly now than when we were in the midst of it. We realize now, if we did not always realize it before, that behind those twelve years were hours of planning, worry, and work on the part of many people. We know that someone in a position of leadership was responsible for the operation of all the details. To you, Mr. Booker, should go much of the credit for our many ad- vantages, for our various opportunities. You have been our Superintendent of Schools here since W. R. BOOKER UPERI TENDE T 1928, a fine record in itself. During those years Muskegon Heights schools have improved and grown, not only physically but in an educational way. If we were to take the time, we might point out to incoming sophomores, and to others, the many ways in which Muskegon Heights schools have proved themselves superior. Heights grad- uates hold positions of responsibility and lead- ership everywhere we go. All of the various de- partments of activity at Heights High have proved themselves outstanding for many years. Above all, Heights High is known as a "friendly" school, a high school where democracy really works, a school where students and faculty and admin- istrators are friends. To the "Gentleman From lndiana", who re- ceived his master's degree from the University of Indiana, taught at Kalamazoo College, was Superintendent of Schools in Greenville before coming here, we say, "Thanks again." We shall always be proud of attending Muskegon Heights Schools while you were Superintendent. to you, Mr. Kruizenga, we Iune graduates say a fond farewell. To us you have proved to be a true friend with an understanding mind and an untiring devotion to the task of guiding and di- recting the educational welfare of all students in our school. We realize that your job is a hard one. Often a principal must make decisions which lie probably would be happy if he could avoid, yet he must make them. We feel that you, Mr. Kruizenga, have always been interested in build- ing honorable men and women. We believe that in the years to come, our community will reflect the influence you have had upon us all. lt may be interesting for some of the younger students to know a little more about you than they do. Born in Spring Lake, Michigan, Mr. Kruizenga received his elementary education in the schools of Ottawa County. He was graduated by Grand Haven High School, received his bach- elor of art's degree from Hope College and his masters degree from the University of Michigan. He taught three years in the 'lhill country" of PRINCIPAL H. A. KRUIZENGA lackson County, Kentucky, before coming here about 20 years ago. Since arriving here he has been athletic ticket manager, coach of the tennis team, and coach of the second team in basket- ball. He was recognized as an excellent teacher cf Latin. ln l953, when ill health caused the retirement of our beloved former principal, Mr. C. F. Bolt, Mr. Kruizenga was appointed to the position. Al- though he is one of the younger principals in the state, Mr. Kruizenga already has established a reputation with students, faculty, and towns- people as a man of highest moral and ethical principles, as well as a man of energy and effi- ciency on the job. Like Mr. Bolt, he "gets things done", and yet he is determined and uncompro- mising when it comes to a question of what is right and what is wrong. To you, Mr. Kruizenga, we also extend a word of thanks along with the "good-byes". We ap- preciate all you have done. We hope we can meet you again in the years ahead. We hope you will be proud of us, as we are of you. mf, , I we .ww L ,wf V S, I , 7 , ,. J 1, rg- Q 1 1, V A L , Li, '-. -22. 1 .,SE.,,: fii - ' , V Q- 1, A . in K A .1,,f2XE"f W x Kilifrf.

Bolt, principal of Muskegon Heights High for 31 years until his retirement in l952 and active in the Muskegon area in so many other ways, no written eulogy could be nearly so elo- quent as was his own capacity for friendship. In all his years in the field of education and elsewhere, that sense of personal interest in others was completely and naturally a part of him. It was a great gift, all the more so in his work with people of school age. He knew their interests and always had plenty of time to discuss their problems and lend a constructive hand. As one of his favorite Bible passages put it, he was a man with an understanding heart. Few people you ever know have so successfully com- bined professional and private lives, seeing no need for a division between them, and for that reason finding much satisfaction in both. He set an example of integrity and personal goodness, in seeking out ways to help other people to happier and fuller lives. Living his religion, he was indeed a friend of his fellow man, and his passing is mourned by the hundreds of individuals of all ages who had the pleasure of knowing him.

The forming of an lnter-School Student Council was a great step toward unifying the schools of Greater Muskegon. This Council consists of Heights, Muskegon, Catholic Central, and North Muskegon. They framed a constitution which we ratified. Each year the Student Council selects a boy and girl on the basis of their citizenship and then places their names upon a citizenship cup. This year the Student Council had the names of all of the persons who received this honor engraved upon plaques. To have a better functioning executive type of Student Council, the election of its officers was held in May. This election was held in a very demoaratic manner from the petitioning of the candidates to the final voting by machines. - Page Seventy-five Top Row: I. Iensen, Follrath, Musich, N.

As usual, the library was used by students in their studies and in doing recreational reading. Purpose of the club was to serve the faculty and the student body efficiently and to inspire the love of reading, to develop capable library assist- ants, and to promote a friendly library atmos- phere. To be eligible to be a member of the club, a student is required to have at least a "C" scho- lastic average and to Work an hour in the library each day as an assistant under the supervision of the school librarian, Miss Kidwell. The library staff has the following duties to per- form: assisting in the preparation of books for circulation by typing cards, pasting and shellack- ing, taking care of the charge-in desk, doing the shelving of returned books, keeping books in order, and supervising the periodical storage. lt is also their duty to keep the bulletin board up to date. Belonging to the club, however, is not all Work. lt has its social side too. The May Tea given in honor of the girls' mothers is a highlight of their social activities.

Meengs The Future Nurses Club members, looking for- ward to a bright future in nursing, once again achieved an outstanding year. Sandra Rinard and Claudette Hitt attended the Michigan Future Nurses Club Convention in Cadillac on October 9, and brought back to the stay-at-home mem- bers a great host of ideas and information. Preparing Christmas favors for hospital trays was a project that the members participated in at their November meeting. During Christmas vacation, many senior girls spent a day with a student nurse visiting Mercy Hospital. The girls also toured the X-Ray Department and Labora- tories of Hackley Hospital. These visits, plus the informative talks given at club meetings by out- standing Women in the nursing field, help give the Future Nurses an accurate and enlightening View of their future career. The club Worked efficiently together to promote their basketball dance, "February Fling", held after the victorious Benton Harbor game on Feb- ruary 4. All in all, the members have agreed that the past year has been one of achievement and excellence. Credit and thanks should be given to the club sponsors, Mrs. E. M. Shebesta and Mrs. M. B. Meengs, who have worked so conscientiously and have given so fully their time. Top Row: Martin, Olsen, Stinson, Paquette, Souser, Medema, Bolt, Baskins, Christopher.

M rs. Ruth Hastings The Spanish Club has been very active in many different fields and activities. There was the annual Christmas party at the new Youth Center to which the Whitehall Spanish Club was invited. Games and dancing followed a short Christmas program and refreshments were served. On the whole it was a great success. Later in the year the Spanish Club sponsored S ANISH LUB E OF L RGE T its annual dance, "The Semester Swing".This dance comes on the week-end between semesters and furnishes the students with entertainment while they are on vacation from school. Soon after the annual dance, plans were started for the Pan American Day program. This is to promote good will, better understanding, and a bond of friendship between the countries of North and South America. The Pan American Day pro- gram is the highlight of the school year for the club. Both Spanish and French students worked hard and helped in any way they could to make it a big success.

This year the club actively engaged in the Hi-Y Legislature in Lansing, held every year for the purpose of training future citizens in government. Herbert Ashley, a Muskegon Heights High School student, was chosen to run for governor. Two other members, lohn Long and Bob Slezak, were chosen to run for the state Con- gress at a pre-legislative meeting held this year HI-Y CLUB I " THE WlM" in Albion. The Hi-Y has always been closely as- sociated with the YMCA and they hold their meetings there. Other activities the club has performed this year were the sponsoring of the "Sophisticated Sock Shuffle," the operation of a booth at the football games, and a candy sale. They also sponsored their annual Easter assembly and co- sponsored the Christmas pageant with the Y- Teens.

Rice The Oaklian Players instituted a year ago has become a very active organization of the school. Its membership consists of 50 students. They inaugurated a unique project, a "Drama Festival," in which five schools participated, namely: Holland, North Muskegon, Muskegon, Grand Haven, and Muskegon Heights. They are hoping to make this an annual event. The festival took place in October, and consisted of five one- act plays, presented and directed by the stu- dents, assisted by school directors. Also present were two professional critics. Muskegon Heights presented "When Shakespeares Ladies Meet" and "Ladies Alone," which were directed by students. The organization also sponsored the All-School Play. It was held on March 31, and April l and 2. The play chosen was "Meet Me In St. Louis," a musical dramatized by Perry Clark. The efforts of the organization and faculty were enthusias- tically received by the public. Congratulations to this active organization and its sponsors! May it continue to flourish.

This Was all made possible through the fine Work done by Mr. Iohn Regenmorter and the wonderful co-operation of the forensics contestants. ln lanuary of this year students began practic- ing speeches for the forthcoming contest. Par- ticipants prepared for humorous readings and dramatic readings. Original oratory is done by writing and memorizing an orginal oration of 1500 words. For oratorical declamation, open only to sophomores, students also prepared speeches. The last one, extemporaneous speak- ing, is developed by studying current event topics and then having one hour previous to the contest to prepare a speech on a certain topic which they have drawn at random. The local winners Were: Declamation, Marilyn Stein and Ronald Piaseckig Dramatic Reading, Robin Adamson and Nickie Peliotesg Humorous Reading, Shirley Swanson and Claralou Brom- leyg Original Oratory, Gordon Murray and Ioan Borgerdingg Extemporaneous Speaking, Carol Kapphahn and Marilyn Savage.

Owing to the fine work of the debaters and Mr. Iohn Regenmorter, coach, the debate team won a plaque given by the Detroit Free Press. The subject of this year's debate was, Resolved: Federal Government Should Initiate The Policy of Free Trade With Nations Friendly to the United States. The varsity team consisted of Ioan Bor- gerding, lanalee Schaefer, affirmative, Marilyn Savage and Carol Kapphahn, negative. The re- serve team consisted of Grace Cole, Austin Aardema, affirmative, Rodell Tucker, fudy Van- derlaan, and Tom Rowson on the negative. To begin the season the debaters attended a practice debate at Ferris lnstitute, after which they were ready to begin debating in earnest. They first debated against Grand Rapids South here, where the negative team won while the affirmative was defeated. Both the affirmative and the negative teams won their debate at Fremont and Ottawa l-lills. The debaters returned to home ground where the affirmative team was defeated and the negative team victorious in a debate with Muskegon. With the score of six wins and two losses, the debaters were qualified to enter the Regional Tournament and were elimif nated by Battle Creek on a two to one decision. Page Nincty-unc RADIO ART PHOTDGR PHY PHOTOGRAPHY The Photography Class is under the direction of Mr. Iames Cobb. They have a regular classroom book through which they learn the different methods of taking and developing pictures. Their first lesson dealt with the taking of pictures from different angles through to their last lesson which dealt with the taking of unusual pictures. However, the class is extremely handi- capped by not having the proper facilities. ART The Art Classes under the direction of Miss Katheryn Keillor Worked and studied many different phases of art this year. Some of the phases in which they Worked Were: copper, in which they enameled jewelry, Oaks cartoons, oil painting, outdoor sketchingsg etch- ing on metal, paper rnache fthe big thing being our big tiger headlg clay pottery, charcoal sketching, and Water paints. RADIO The Radio Class of Muskegon Heights High School under the direction of Mr. Eugene Gillaspy presented a number of varied programs through the cour- tesy of radio station W K N K. The programs were usually centered around a theme. Some of the themes were: May Day, Spring, the All School Play, Pan-American Day, and a recap of the school year's activities. PU BLICATIO This year's Acorn staff, under the direction of student editor, Nickie Peliotes, and her assistant, Claudette Hitt, turned out three Acorns during the 1954-55 school year. Among these were the Homecoming edition and the colorful Christmas edition with a jolly red and green Santa on the cover. The pre-game edition before the Tiger-Big Red battle contained nut-shell predictions gathered from students and civic leaders. The weekly school-page, featured in the Chron- icle every Tuesday, carried news and feature articles by student reporters assigned to various areas of interest. Student editors supervising this Work were Diane Petroskey and Marie Rogozinski. Many student articles also appeared in the Heights Record. Responsible for this activity were student editors Ioy Nye and Laurel Vanderplow. W. E. Murray is publications advisor.

THE OAKS, A CHERI HED NN AL KEEPSAKE From the time in September when plans were first made for the annual publication of The OAKS, journalism class members have worked cooperatively to make this, the 1955 edition, the best. Since the yearbook is the most important single project of the journalism class, much of the time is spent collecting the material, editing and pub- lishing the OAKS. The OAKS Work was directed by student editor, Nickie Peliotes, and her assist- ant, Claudette Hitt. ln the fall the theme of The OAKS was selected, which is, "building". The cover design, executed by Pat Novak, was de- cided upon not long after. Page Ninety-four By the time March rolled around the entire class was Working at top speed. Deadlines had to be met and every bit of material had to be checked tor accuracy. Finally, when all the copy was safely in the hands of the printer and The OAKS was sure to come out on time, the tired students could relox. Assisting the journalism class with The OAKS were the following: Mr. C. P. Koehn, printing, Mr. L. Schregardus, advertising, Mr. I. V. Cobb, photography, Mr. W, E.

The old man crossed in the twilight dim, For the sullen stream had no fear for him, But he turned when safe on the other side, And builded a bridge to span the tide. "Old man," cried a fellow pilgrim near, "You're wasting your time in building here. Your journey will end with the closing day, You never again will pass this way. You have crossed the chasm deep and wide, Why build you this bridge at even-tide?" The builder lifted his old gray head: "Good friend, in the path I have come," he said, "There followeth after me today A youth whose feet must pass this way, This stream which has been as naught to me, To that fair-haired youth may pitfall be. He, too, must cross in the twilight dim, Good friend, I am building that bridge for him." -Anonymous ?""'f A, ' ' ' L N 1, 'mt5,yM',f'f QQm?f5 Q gk A x fx , .W h .. , , Fxw, I ' A K ,1 1 ' v A . . ,, 1 1 r M A .L ' N' .

WIRSCHEM MH. GALOMBECK MR. LIDDICOAT Robert Wirschem, our A Cap- pella Choir, Chorus, and Glee Club, has completed his seven- teenth year of teaching, his last two years being at Heights High. Mr. Wirschem has put spe- cial emphasis on our Chorus and Girls' Glee Club. The membership has increased and the interest and enthusiasm has really grown. After coming here from North Muskegon High School, Mr. Wirschem built a fast rep- utation for his outstanding and unusual stage settings. Mr. Wirschem has received his Bachelor of Science and Master in Music degrees. 'Aioipzues Warner Galombeck, our or- chestra director, has just com- pleted his fifth year here at Heights High. As most of us will agree, after hearing the annual spring concert, Mr. Galombeck has brought our orchestra a long way, and Heights High cer- tainly is proud of it. Before coming to Heights High, Mr. Galombeck taught music to private students. He is a member of the Philhar- monic Orchestra and the well- known Philharmonic Trio. Mr. Galornbeck received his education and advanced cer- tificate at the Cincinnati Con- Mr. Paul Liddicoat began teaching here in l947. Since that time he has made innu- merable contributions to the progress and efficiency of the band. Under his leadership the band has taken several first division ratings, as well as having played for all football games, parades, and civic af- fairs. ln addition, hundreds of awards have been won by in- dividual students. "Heights Night", the annual variety show presented here ever since l949, is another of Mr. Liddicoat's successes. lf the past is any guide to the future, our band under the leadership of Mr. Liddicoat's direction, will continue to be the "best band in the land."

MARCHING BAND I PIRE The marching band has again, under the di- rection of Mr. Paul Liddicoat, brought life, sparkle, and inspiration to our school, The Wednesday nite band practice has shown itself in marvelous football halftime shows, originated by Mr. Liddi- coat, and in spirited pep assemblies. Some of the more spectacular shows this year were a number of clever "take-offs" on Liberace and also some very effective black light shows. When the football season was completed, the band entered its concert season. The music played the rest of the year was of a more serious nature than they played at the pep assemblies and football games. AS IT PERFORMS The annual Heights Night show was a high- light of the concert season. This show was origi- nated in l949 by Mr. Liddicoat and has been im- proved every year. Other features of the concert seaion were the district festival at which the band received a 2nd rating this year, and the well received Spring Concert. The excellent spirit and co-operation shown by the individual band members is what has made the Heights band one of the finest in Michigan. Page One hundred-one ORCHE TRA ALSO ERVES SCHOOL Again our orchestra has offered a splendid showing to make us really proud of it. Under the able and untiring direction of Warner Galom- beck, it has shown great improvement and has caught the interest of many students so as to increase its size. The orchestra has made many appearances this year. They participated in the All-school play, "Meet Me ln St. Louis" in accompanying the musicales and playing the overture.

Aueusr has coached Varsity Football, baseball, and basketball ever since 1926. Very few Head Coaches in the class A high schools handle all three major sports. ln tact "Okie" is about the only one. DR. AUGUST The Dr. August Scholarship is given every year to the boy selected by Coach lohnson as the rnost deserving. Every year Dr. August sets aside 35250, which is the money he receives as team physician, for the scholarship. A great deal of credit should go to Dr. August for the fine job he is doing, not only as team physician, but also tor the line person he really is. Page One hundred-nine Petrongelli lohnson Firme VAR ITY FOOTB LL Coach O. E. lohnson, in his twenty-eighth year of coaching at Heights High, came up with the Southwest Conference tro- phy for the eleventh time in 1954. The Tigers defeated Muske- gon 21-19, ending a 3-year los- ing streak to the Big Reds. The Tigers scored 206 points to their opponents 133, ending the season with a 7-l-1 record, losing only to Bay City Central. Dean Danigelis made the All- State Second Team, Len Hart- man and Eddie Carlson re- ceived honorable mention. loe Christie dazzled the spec- tators with a brilliant display of running attacks, and much credit probably is due Ted Halasinski who filled in for lohn Scheel. Ted and loe both will return in the fall.

Coached under the watchful eye of Mr. Gale Bolthouse the team gained considerable ex- perience and learned good sportsmanship. The starting eleven included: ends, Bon Zimmer and Pete Peliotes, tackles, Haken, Hen- drickson and Tom Price, often- sive guards, Bob Hansen and Eddie McBride, with Don Mose ley at center. Nate Hunter play- ed fullback along with Lloyd Swelnis at quarterback, and at the halves Tom Cristopher, Ken- nedy Howell, and Willie Mc- Carthy, the Tigers really clicked. Those who also played fe-guisfiy and heiped to fin the l gaps caused by injuries were Charles Christmas, Dick Vallie, . Rudy perysicm Ierry Fitzput, Garzellom Bolthouse Zeigler rick, and Darel Dew.

Dean Danigelis and Iohn Scheel paced the victors up and down the field with smashing drives, Dean Danigelis scored two touchdowns on runs of 17 and 13 yards. In the second quarter Bob Slezak ran 19 yards, breaking through on a quarterback sneak to score. Scheel converted making the score 14-0. Unions Dick Droski made an exciting run of 44 yards to score for Union making a 14-6 score at halftime. Danigelis scored his second touchdown of the game. HEIGHTS-13 KALAMAZOO-7 A strong and determined Kalamazoo team was waiting when the Muskegon Heights Tigers traveled to Kalamazoo to play the Maroon Giants for the final time. The Tigers scored in the first period and held their slim lead until late in the third period. The Tigers fought off a win-hungry Kazoo pack twice in the first half. Kalama- zoo threatened the Tiger goal line twice and it was not until the third period did their drive going 75 yards in 14 plays finally paid off to tie the game at 7-7. In the fourth period the Tigers drove deep into Kalamazoo ter- ritory but were stopped at the 20 yard line, lt was the first time the Tigers penetrated the Maroon Giants ter- ritory since the first period. The game had all the makings of a tie until Bob Slezak fired a 46 yard screen pass to Dean Danigelis who then ran 40 yards untouched to win the game for the Tigers 13-7 A HEIGHTS-14 GRAND HAVEN-14 Tremendously outplaying the Grand Haven Bucaneers the Muskegon Heights Tigers had to come from behind twice to tie the game at 14-14, Grand Haven scored fast, passing into the Tiger secondary, lt was the first time in six games that the Tigers had trouble with their pass defense, Grand Havens first score came in the second quarter, when DeKoeyer threw a pass to Warner good for 28 yards to the Tiger 10. Swiftney passed to Barger and he ran over for the score to lead 7-0 at the half. Taking the second half kickoff the Tigers started on cr relentless 80 yard drive to finally tie the score 7-7. The drive consisted of 16 plays with Dean Danigelis smashing over from the three. The other Tiger touchdown came when the Tigers moved 70 yards on ll plays. Bob Slezak scored on a sneak. The Tigers made 18 first downs while Grand Haven had 5 and rolled up 210 yards and Grand Haven had to be content with 79. HEIGHTS-21 BENTON HARBOR-18 The Tigers shocked a surprised Benton Harbor team when they defeated the downstate Tigers 21-18. Three all important extra points by Ted Halosinski decided the game. In the first quarter the Tigers drove 67 yards in 17 plays for the first of the local's score. Ioe Christie made a spec- tacular play as he intercepted a pass thrown by Howard Rodgers, and raced 73 yards for another Heights score. Halasinski again converted to make the score 14-6. A second break for the Heights came when a bad pass from center forced a would-be punt to end on the Benton Harbor 10, Christie crashed the line and scored. Halasin- ski converted for the third time and the Heights scoring HEIGHTS-21 MUSKEGON-19 In perhaps the most anticipated game of the year the Tigers once again proved their superiority by defeating the Muskegon Big Reds 21-19. The game was a thriller from start to finish. The first Muskegon score came when Muskegon Heights fumbled deep in their own territory. The Tigers quickly recountered and drove down the field on a series of short passes to tie the game at 7-7, The Tigers scored again in the second period to take the lead for the remainder of the game. Ted Halasinski starred for the Tigers scoring two touchdowns, and kicking three extra points, however all the Tigers played a tremendous game. ended.

Going into the Regional Tournament, they de- feated Grand Rapids Union, Holland, and Grand Rapids South at Burton Gym in Grand Rapids, to win the Regional Championship. The Tigers also split the Southwest Conference Championship with Benton Harbor. injuries cropped up in the final games of the Regional play which probably hampered the Tigers the most in the Heights 34-43 loss to Benton Harbor in the quarter-finals. M. C. Burton scored a total of 462 points this season for a 24 point average per game. The Tiger team as a whole scored L l,32U points this season for a 74.7 point average per game. The Tigers were given more honors as M. C. Burton was polled the top Class A player in the state, an honor rarely achieved by a local player. lim McMurray, Tiger trickster, was named on the All-State fourth team. The Tigers defeated Muske- gon five straight times, in the past two years, without a re- counter by the Big Red team. All in all, the Tigers went through a great season, tasted defeat only three times in l9 games, held the longest win streak in the state, and estab- lished a new school scoring record, 92 points in a single game.

The team improved steadily with Willie McCarty leading the way with a grand total of 232 points and a average of l6.l per game. McCarty was closely followed by Kennedy Howell with 204 points and a l3.6 average with Pete Peliotes scoring l62 points and a average of l0.8. Peliotes tallied 40 out of 66 charity tosses for a .606 mark, lack Snider, Bob Cullen and Ted Zimmer thus rounded out the quintet. The tiger Cubs had several exceptional records with a .472 average at the foul line and a offensive average of 50.6 compared to 40.3 for the opponents.

These are the stars who will probably pace the Tigers throughout the season. At the time of this writing, the Tigers had already defeated Muskegon Catholic Central, North Muskegon, and Grand Haven. At Allegan the Tigers won a second place in the quadrangular meet, competing against Kalamazoo, Clast year's cross-country charnpionsl, Allegan, and Holland. The Tigers were strong in certain track and field events, but had to settle for a second place berth.

Although the records will show that our deteats tar outnumber our victories, we must take into consideration that our community is not a tennis-minded one. Facilities for practice and playing are poor and not very alluring to the young, halt-interested beginners ot the sport. Despite these obstacles however, Coach Firme has done a splendid job ot keeping our tennis program strong and away trom the realm ot the "has beensf' Replacing Mr. Firme atter his resignation is Iohn Sydnor, a teacher ot English and social science at Heights lunior High. Mr. Sydnor, during the years 1959-'50 and '51, played at Hampton institute in Virginia. He also had the privilege ot playing on the Tidewater Conference in Virginia. Locally, Mr. Sydnor has worked with Bill Bos, outstanding tennis coach at Muskegon High. While getting the team in order, coach Sydnor used competition within the team to establish ability and teamwork combinations.
