"Tall oaks from little acorns grow." - Everett
It has been said that The Oaks is the only written evidence of
some of the best years of our lives. Because the staFf of '62 sincerely
believes this statement, we have tried our best to make this yearbook
an outstanding record of the memorable years of our school life.
As we look through these pages in the years to come, we hope
to revive again and again our many friendships and old times. We
can, at a glance, recall the members of the faculty and the adminis-
tration who have labored to help us take our place in a democratic
There was a time -- several years ago - when one might say
we were little "acorns." We hope we can say that today we are
"oaks," strong enough to stand on our own feet, with roots in the
firm ground of fundamentals and with arms reaching for the stars.
Each time we turn these pages, we shall be reminded of the fun
we had, as well as our obligations to ourselves and our community.
We hope each page will hold for you, fond memories of the year,
G. L. W.

"And gladly would he learn,
and gladly teach." -- Chaucer
What quotation is more appropriate for
describing our faculty and administration?
We students owe a debt of gratitude to
these people for their role in the molding
of our characters as well as the improve-
ment of our minds.
These friends we call teachers have re-
vealed to us much more than the academic,
business, or vocational subiects they teach
in their classes. By precept and by exam-
ple, as well as by the casual, everyday,
friendly discussions after hours or "oft the
cuff", they have helped us immensely to
understand life and our part in society.
Good sportsmanship, self-control, patience,
determination - in short, all of the several
virtues possessed by successful people of
the world, have been given to us to de-
velop. lf we are not good citizens of a
democracy in the years ahead, it will not
be because these teachers, and leaders in
the field of education, have failed to show
us the highway to the goal.
Teachers have shared their knowledge
with us and given to us out of their experi-
ence, in order that we may become good
men and women, citizens of an informed
nation - for, surely, knowledge rules the
world today more than ever before.

Although most of the students in High School
probably were unaware of the fact, our principal,
Mr. H. A. Kruizenga, was given added responsibili-
ties during the 1961-62 school year. The Board of
Education asked Mr. Kruizengci at the beginning of
the year to assist Superintendent Fred E. Strong at
the Central Schools office at least part of the time.
Following the retirement of James Verduin, former
Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, the
volume of work in the Superintendent's oFfice neces-
sitated extra help.
Things at High School went along smoothly, as
usual, however, and Mr. Leonard Schregardus con-
tinued his customary duties at the desk as Assistant
Principal. Experienced office secretaries, Mrs. Anna
Harvath and Miss Bonnie GriFles, also helped to
keep administrative affairs humming,

"The golden age is before us,
not behind us." - St. Simon
As we seniors of 1962 look back on the
past with fond memories, and to the future
with perhaps some hesitance, we think of
the years we spent at Heights High and
how those years will help take hold of
things to come.
The future undoubtedly holds out many
opportunities to many people, as may be
evidenced in the interesting write-ups in
the Senior section of this volume of "The
Oaks". Some of our friends may change
their ambitions and their goals as the years
progress. However, the spirit they inherit
from Heights High, and the characters they
have formed, probably will be a thing of
permanence in their lives.
The past three years have been reward-
ing ones. Some of it has been "grinding,"
but also satisfying. Other moments have
been filled with laughter and excitement.
So, with our heads held high, proud to be
graduates of Muskegon Heights High
School, we go forth into the fields of en-
deavor that we have chosen. Someday, we
may get together once again to renew our
friendships and our interest in the Class
2-1wS1r'F ,ui .. I . ,
SENIOR CLASS ADVISERS
Mr. Westmon, Miss Cobb, Mr. Ochs,
By Colleen Wltttmlcer
The Senior Class, headed by presi-
dent, Gloria Wilkinson, has been
busy already this year.
Recently, seniors voted upon selec-
tions for class motto, flower, and
colors. Pam Heethuis and her com-
mittee decided upon several flowers,
colors and mottoes, which were sub-
mitted to the seniors for the ballot
vote. The following were chosen:
flower, red roseg colors, rose and
silver white, and motto, "The future
lies before you like a shining path
of snow, be careful how you tread,
for every step will show."
Another matter that the seniors
decided upon was to whom the Oaks
would be dedicated. From a list of
four teachers, Mr. Westman, one of
our well-liked senior class advisors,
The other class officers are: vice-
president, Judy Boylang secretary,
Jean Plichtag and treasurer, Jack

The 1962 Homecoming was delightful, different, and
a big success! Queen Pam Heethuis and King Charles
Swenor were the first royal couple in Heights High history
to grace our field on a Hoat!
A Student Council committee, headed by Rick Whiting,
was in charge of the festivities, held during the half-time
ceremonies of the Heights-Muskegon Catholic game on
October 14, 1961.
Ten Senior Arbor Girls preceded the candidates and
their escorts. They were Judy Boylan, Joan Carlson, Marvis
Cline, Gladys Hamstra, Joan Kensinger, Ruth Long, Pat Rice,
Jane Richardson, Barb Steegstra, and Colleen Whittaker.
Linda Heistand and Jeanne Irwin followed with the crowns.
The happy couple was crowned by Mr. and Mrs, Del
Firme. Mr. Firme was presented with the famed MH blanket.
Escorting Pam and Chuck were .lim Johnson and Terri

"Music hath charms to soothe the savage
breast, to soften rocks and bend the knotted
oak." - Congreve
Never underestimate the power of music.
Alexander, who is said to have conquered
most of the civilized world, found that music
could put him into a pensive or a martial
mood. The sound of music has stirred the
hearts and minds of men. lt has led the feet
of freedom fighters on to victory. lt has
soothed the furrowed brows of the hungry
and the oppressed.
Music, it has been often said, speaks ci
universal language. lt is understood by the
literate and the illiterate, the civilized and
the uncivilized, the rough and the refined.
lt can calm the nerves, and it can inspire.
lt can lift the souls of men skyward and
teach him to commune with God. One can-
not imagine the world without the strains of
music. What a drab place this would be!
lt means a life itself, for the student of
music, and it means a lifetime of relaxation
and pleasure for the average music-lover.
It adds a touch of romance and adventure
to the everyday, practical world. In short,
"music hath many charms."

This has been a very busy year for the orchestra and their
new director Mr. Gerrit Van Ravenswaay. A Western Michigan
University graduate, he formerly taught at Menominee and
Mattawan. Many concerts were presented with the band and
choir, including a fall concert, a Christmas concert, and a com-
bined presentation with the choir on "Manhatten Towers". The
orchestra played between acts for the Senior Play, and pro-
vided music for Carousel, the successful All-School Play. The
orchestra also provided music for the Thanksgiving, Christmas,
and Easter assemblies.
The orchestra is losing ten seniors: Judy Boylan, Jean
Ryerson, Barb Steegstra, Marvis Cline, Carol Flaska, Willie
Griffin, Pat Steenhagen, Jean lrwin, Shirley Williams and Roy
Mr. Russell Dodge and Mr. Jack Saunders.
This year Mr. Russell Dodge directed the band
through a successful year. Mr. Dodge is a graduate
of the University of Michigan, and previously taught
at Coldwater and Menden Michigan. Assistant to Mr.
Dodge is Mr. Jack Saunders.
The band performed this year at home football
games, concerts, school activities, and parades. They
went to the Band Festival at Coopersville, as an "un-
classified" band, and received high praise from the

"Lights" "Camera" "Action!"
Activities are to a high school as life-
blood and spirit are to the human body.
When all students are active both physical-
ly and mentally, it pumps vitality into the
entire educational structure. Skills which an
individual may possess are discovered and
developed by participation in both curric-
ular and extra-curricular activity.
For example, if a student desires to be a
nurse, she can participate in the "Canary"
project and learn at first-hand what life in
the local hospitals is like. She can also join
the Future Nurses for inspiration and profit.
lf a boy wants to become an engineer, he
can join the Jets, and put his mathematics
and physics into practice. Students who de-
sire to be teachers can learn something of
the problems involved by joining the W. R.
Booker Future Teachers Club.
You want to be an actor? Well, why not
join the Oaklian Players. Who knows, you
may end up on Broadway, as one Heights
student did. Want to be an "old pro" in
sports? Why not try out for spring practice,
or football in the fall?
And for all you "politicians", there's
always the Student Council, where untold
opportunities for democracy in action unfold
during the year. The good old Yankee tra-
dition of "learning by doing" is nowhere
more in evidence than in journalism. Here
budding reporters and editors try their hand
at being publishers, writing for the local
newspaper, The Muskegon Chronicle, the
school paper, The Acorn, and, finally, edit-
ing and publishing this yearbook, The Oaks.
Art students draw the cover, typists type-
write the COPY: English students write and
edit the copy, printing students often assist
in running some of the material oft the
Action . . . action . . . action, everywhere!
lt's a very real and significant part of

THE WHITING FAMILY
Into Busy Year
By Gloria Wilkinson
This year's Student Council is
headed by a team of enthusiastic
leaders: Pam Heethuis, presidentg
Rick Whiting, vice presidentg Gloria
Wilkinson, secretaryg Jim Cobb,
treasurerg and Miss Jane Schroeder,
During the past summer all officers
except the president attended a
Leadership Training program in Ann
Arbor. The president received the
honor and privilege of attending the
National Student Council Convention
in Oklahoma. They returned from
these council programs with much
information and many ideas.
Already an idea from one of these
programs was put into effect by the
city inter-school student council. A
clinic for council members of all
area high schools was held at the
Y.W.C.A. to inform representatives
of council work and activities in
hopes of improving all councils.
Jim Cobb lTreos.l, Gloria Wilkinson lSec.l, Rick Whiting
lV-Pres.l, Pom Heethuis lPres.l.
An outstanding accomplishment of
this year's council was Homecom-
ing. Under the direction of Rick
Whiting, Homecoming was made the
grandest yet with the addition of a
Hoat - a first at Heights High,
A busy year lies ahead for the
council of '62,

Being a good looking carousel barker to whom all the girls flock,
Billy is quite the ladies' man . . . until he meets Julie. Complications
set in and both lose their iobs. He marries Julie, realizing she loves
and understands him as no one else has before. When Julie tells him
of the coming baby, his wild outlook on life fades away and he begins
to make plans for the haby's welfare. He and Jigger, a no-good sailor,
attempt to rob the rich mill-owner, Bascombe, but the attempt is unsuccess-
ful, Seeing no other escape, Billy kills himself. Entering the gates of
Heaven, Billy is given one day to return to earth to try to do some
good for someone for the first time. His day of returning is his daughter
Louise's graduation. Posing as a stranger, he makes her understand that
her father was actually good, unlike the stories she grew up believing.
ln the very last scene, we see the very humble, greatly changed Billy
whispering to Julie, "l loved you Julie, know that l loved you." With
those words finally said, he enters Heaven.

Coach Donn Westman
ln their second year of Cross-country competition our
Muskegon Heights Tiger's 1961 campaign turned out to be a
The Tigers closed the season with a very impressive 10-O mark
in dual-meets. They won the Lake Michigan Athletic Conference
Championship, and placed third in the rugged Class A Regional at
Two Heights runners, Sam McMurray and Mike Gaunt, partic-
ipated as individuals in the State Finals at Ypsilanti. Sam ran ninth
and Mike ran twenty-third among 60 boys from around the state.
The following boys were maior letter winners: B. Bohn, M.
Borgeson, D. Christian, J. Cobb, M. Gaunt, W. Leadman, B. Cook,
L. Fialek, S. McMurray, R. Martin, L. Martin, D. Phelps, H. Mackey,
A great coach like Don Westman, and a fine team which had
real personal desire and confidence, are the reasons why the team
accomplished so very much in 1961.
The 1962 outlook is yet undetermined, but with the return of
such boys as Gaunt, Borgeson, and Fialek, the team should be in
pretty good shape.
The 1961 Cross-Country team can now be added to a long
list of other successful Muskegon Heights Sports teams of the past

Most of us here at Heights High probably look on golf as a "new" sport, but we have had golf
teams before, and good ones, tool Although our 1961 golf team was not too successful Coach William
Bosserdet, together with two returning lettermen, AI Brooks and Tom Vanderplow, were looking forward
to better things to come in 1962, as this yearbook went to press.

"Advertising is the life of trade."
- Calvin Coolidge
One might think that only a very naive
person these days would ever ask the ques-
tion: "Why advertise?" lf we as editors of
The Oaks are asked the question, often we
have iust o little suspicion that the business-
man is just trying to find out if we, too, real-
ly know the answer.
We are sure he knows. Why wouldn't he?
Millions of people today earn more money
in fewer hours, have more disposable in-
come to spend on goods and services for
beyond elemental needs, than anywhere
else in the world! To provide information
about these goods, their characteristics,
prices, and advantages . . . this is the pur-
pose of advertising. Without advertising we
would have little or no TV, radio, or news-
papers. Shopping would take twice as long.
Prices per unit of nearly all goods would
skyrocket. On the other hand, the cost of
advertising is very small on most products
When a businessman advertises in The
Oaks, however, it is not so much the im-
mediate sale he is interested in producing:
it is a whole lifetime of good will toward
his most important "customer" . . . you!

Love In Your Heart?
'Tor unto us a child is born, unto us a son. is given , . . and
his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the mighty God,
the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace . . ."
Christmas with its wonder and worship, its music and med-
itation, its fantasy and festivity, is truly a happy and heartwarm-
ing season filled with heartfelt love."
One of the most rewarding aspects of the observance of
Christ.mas is the privilege of giving gifts to loved ones and
friends, and sharing possessions with others. But, perhaps even
more rewarding than this is keeping Christmas individually by
acquiring a true Christmas spirit in one's own heart and mind.
To find whether or not you possess a true heartfelt love,
examine your heart and the extent of your love. Forget what
you've done for others and remember what they've done for you.
Exclude any thought about the world owing you anything and
think only of what you owe the world-of what you can contri-
bute to life to make it a little more worthwhile. Think of the
many ways that you can spread the love and joy of this sacred
and festive season to the many burdened people around you. Fill
your heart with love, the strongest thing in the world, and
fulfill the true meaning of Christmas.
Decide now that you're going to make this a wonderful
Christmas for someone-for yourself, through personal satis-
faction, and for others, through love, kindness, and thoughtful-
Stand Up For Our Tigers
It has been noticeable at most of our pep assemblies this
year that a portion of our students refuse to rise and cheer.
They're easy to locate, for they usually sit at the top of the
bleachers in their respective sections, trying to be noticed. Maybe
these students feel as if they are getting the recognition they
need when everyone watches them in the assemblies. Of course,
this is appalling, but it doesn't account for the fact that our
cheering section at the games sounds like "a very sick Tiger".
Our team deserves, and should get, 100 per cent support!

How To Influence
By Roy McBride
Note: In the first issue of "The
Acnnrt, students were given an np-
portunity to influence teachers by
the "eight easy lessons". But never
fear, teachers, for you now have six
easy steps by means of which you,
too, can follow the path to victory
and become highly respected and
appreciated. Read carefully!
1. Give students a break: Never
mark anyone absent unless he's
been gone at least a week or so.
2, Give all students who chew
gum in class an UA". After all, it
helps their teeth and sets a good
example for those who would like to
get on the Gleem and Crest pro-
3. Don't bore your students. Give
them variety. Have parties, dances,
general social hours, coffee breaks,
etc, You'll enjoy it, too.
4. Help your students with home-
work by mimcographing the an-
swers right with the questions.
Make it tough, though, for the
"brains" by numbering the ques-
tions backward, and the answers
5. Discard text books: just read a
little from "Teen Life" each day.
Vary this with Ann Landers once a
6. Use poor grammar Whenever in
t.he presence of your pupils. lt helps
to instill what we "in the know"
fondly refer to as 'Kthe buddy im-
age." You know, it gives you s sort
of feeling of Htogethemessf'

"ln Many A Fix Since '76, But Never
Touched The Ground"
By Gladys Hamstrn
One day, a young boy was seen
running across the rooftops being
pursued by two soldiers armed with
submachine gunsg the boy's weapon,
his courage. As he reached a roof-
top near the boi-der, he crouched
clown to dodge the bullets. The fire
department on the opposite side
rushed to the boy's aid with a safety
net, The boy stood up and shouted
for all to hear, uFreedom, freedom,"
and then jumped, missing the net by
twelve feet! He'd rather be dead
Where did this happen? East Ber-
lin is the answer, but it could hap-
pen here! "Freedom is not every
man's right, but instead every man's
responsibility!" This is indeed so,
and unless we believe this, and take
effective, positive action. freedom
will be lost! ls it fair to these brave
people that we be talked out of our
ideals? We are their only hope.
Khrushchev has said, "Whether
you like it or not, hiswry is on our
side, We will bury you," He believes
this, and is working to that end.

they can accomplish by concentra-
tion of effort, they may indeed suc-
We must likewise concentrate our
eliorts, for we are in great peril.
Will power and knowledge hold the
world. Although we have the great-
est war power in the world, it did
no good in Cuba. We were 'ttalkecl
out, not shot out. Our aim should
be to build a will power to match
our war power. How else can we
defend our America if we cari't
stand up and defend our ideals?
Tea For Teachers
By Gloria Wtlkmson
The Annual Christmas Tea spon-
sored by the student Council was
a really big success.
The students and teachers took
advanmge of an excellent opportun-
ity to become acquainted with one
another while eating and drinking
Christmas ugoodiesu, delicious
Christmas punch and cookies, coffee,
and open-faced sandwiches. These
rare delicacies were fumished by
the Home Economic Classes.
The guests were warmly wel-
comed by the Council officers and
lovely white corsages were present-
ed tio each female teacher attending.
The successful outcome was a re-
sult of careful planning and prepar-
ation by the Christmas Committee
chairman. Paul Falzonc. Miss Jane

Colle e Advice
By golleen Whittaker
lt is a well-known fact that the
difference between high school and
college is astounding. Time and
again the point is stressed that stu-
dents planning to go to college
should be preparing themselves for
this goal all through high school.
However, the students never seem
to realize the importance of this
preparation until it is too late. All
me often they arrive at roiiege and
"flunk out" thc first semester.
Since the advice of parents and
teachers seems to fall on deaf ears,
we thought perhaps some advice
from Heights alumni might be of
value. in querying students from
various colleges, we received many
different answers to the question:
MWhat advice do you have for Sen-
iors who are planning to go on to
college?" The advice, briefly stated,
is as follows:
1. Learn how to organize your
2. If you'rc really interested in
learning while in college, by-
pass extra-curricular activities
in your freshman year,
3. Lcam to think.
4. Know how to use a library.
5 Plan ahead. Don't wait until
your Senior year of high school
to start investigating various
colleges and careers.
G. Have a good background in
7. Leam how to take notes. All
colleges consist mainly of lec-
We honestly hope these few sug-
gestions will be of some help to
those who are sincerely interested
in a college education. Just one last
piece of advicc: relax and enjoy col-
lege fif you can!j,

Choose "Carousel," Popular Musical,
To Be Presented In Spring
By Candi Beese
Whether you are absolutely burst-
ing with dramatic or musical talent,
or perhaps one who just appreciates
such things, there will be something
for everyone in the all-school pro-
duction of Rodgers and Hammer-
stein's "Cai-ouself' Tryouts will be
held in January and the perform-
ance on April 26, 27 and 28.
This strange and beautiful love
story with its unforgettable songs,
takes place in a small town on the
coast of Maine in 1873. Billy Bige-
low, handsome and proud barker of
the carousel in the local amusement
park, and Julie Jordan, a lovely
young girl who works in a factory,
fall in love and go ol? together,
though it costs them their jobs.
When they return, married and with
a small child, they face a hostile
town. In the clifhcult months that
follow, Billy is unable to get work,
and becomes so desperate and bitter
that he agrees to join his unsavory
pal, Jigger, in a robbery, Their plans
go awry, and Billy trying to escape,
falls on his knife and is killed.
Fiftccn years later, Billy, looking
down from heaven, sees that all is
not wcll with his child, now an at-
tractive, but rejected, young girl. He
retums to earth for a day, makes
himself visible to his daughter, and
gives her his star. This star, together
with Billy's fatherly advice, brings
the girl new joy and assurance.
Billy, satisfied that he has at last
donc something good for his child,
retums to heaven.
There are eight major roles: .lu-
lie Jordan, Biuy Bigelow, Carrie,
Enoch Snow, Nettie, Mrs. Mullen,
Louise, and Jigger - the first five
of them requiring vocal solos. The
musical score includes such familiar
songs as: "You'll Never Walk
Alone", "June Is Busting Out All
Overn, and 'gif I Love You," The
remainder of the cast will be made
up of a large chorus, dancers, an
orchestra, and many character roles.
"Carousel" will be presented un-
der the direction of Mr. Maurice
Wildt, who will also take care of
choral parts and make-up. Mr. Ger-
rit Van Ravenswaay heads the or-
chestral accompaniment. Mr. Ken-
ncth Edwardson will have charge of
dialogue, with Mr. Travis Gunter
doing staging. Mrs. Eloise Heaton
is supervising the costume depart-
ment. Publicity managers are Mrs,
Barbara Davies and Mr, Ronald
Keeping in mind, the saying "A
play is only as good as its worst
player," let's have everyone stir up
lots of enthusiasm to make "Carou-
sel" the very best musical ever!
