Nature has been kind to us, for she blots out all of our most unpleasant memories and leaves indelible in our memories those events which have afforded us great pleasure. It is the desire of the pictorial and the journalism staff to aid nature in completing her task by creating this pictorial section. We hope this section serves as a history of the past year at Muskegon Heights High School — a year filled with action and excitement, a school filled with 1,050 busy students. It is here we have found the moments to gather together in cluster and crowds . . . the minutes to plan projects and dances . . . the hours spent in a special class where we do not count the minutes ... a year in which we found and renewed friendships ... a year in which many a laugh was enjoyed and many a tear shed ... a year shared together in work and play, joy and tears, victory and defeat ... a year which we shall long remember. ' , 1 Homecoming 19 67 October 14 was the big day where Spencer Graham and Asaline Culver were crowned King and Queen. Their court consists of Steve Koziak, Preston Martin, Edward Wasiura, Carol Dickert, Vickie Gaunt, and Pam Pedler.

To keep these memories with us this years journalism staff has decided on the idea " School Memories " as the theme for our 1968 Oaks. So that all the students in the class of ' 68 will treasure this book as their personal diary of their unforgetable experience here at Heights High. This year we have tried to bring out our theme in somewhat of a different manner, by having an eleven page introductory of pictures to show you the major events that has taken place during the 1967 — 67 school year. As you leaf through this book we hope that you let your mind wander back into the land of memories and, perhaps, recall a thrilling football or basketball game and maybe an old faculty member who had helped you through a trying period. All in all we the journalism class have tried to grasp up all our treasured memories and present them to you in your 1968 edition of the Oaks. w. 1968 Oaks Staff Sandi Vitek Darrellee Williams OAKS CO-EDITORS SENIORS Carol Hunters Gainell Paige Darlene DeHudy Marilyn Fife UNDERGRADS Bonita Jordan Cathy Deuster Mike Espinoza Vicki Gaunt Deborah Alcorn Deborah Brott SPORTS EDITORS Ed Wasiura John Harris Ann Lewis TYPISTS Lynda Bums Linda Cross Norma Sukup Nancy Cates Gainell Paige MUSIC AND DRAMA Carolyn Mortenson Brenda Kyser ACTIVITIES Ofelia Casarez Lynda Bums FACULTY Linda Cross Norma Sukup AD MANAGERS Nancy Cates Vicki Norkuks EDITORIAL Mr. W.

We, the Senior Class of Muskegon Heights High School, wish first to say what we are taking from this high school rather than what we have left it. We are taking with us a feeling of love and devotion to a school system that has given us much, a system which has taught us to probe, to search, and to filter out the truth. We found here a rare kind of faculty who challenged our every statement in order that we might at last speak the truth, and speak it well. We are taking with us not only a knowledge of books, but of life, and or man. We hope we will, as a result, better ourselves personally, and our country. In return for these wonderful gifts, we can only give back a promise: a promise to strive hard to justify our schools ' faith in us. S? !) !)3 gi 3 t 4 ( g f 3g 31 CLASS PRESIDENT Richard A.

At present he is Director of Guidance and Counseling, and Director of Attendance. Students and faculty of Heights High are sorry to see him leave coaching, a job which he has always loved, but we wish him well in whatever work he pursues in the future. In an interview, he said: " I can truthfully say my decision to retire from athletic coaching was one of the most difficult I have had to make. During the period from September, 1947, through November, 1967, it was my pleasure and good fortune as a head or assistant coach of football, tennis, and baseball, to work with several outstanding athletes and hundreds of fine young men. I would like to believe that in some small way their participation in athletics made their school experience more satisfying and helped them after they left school. I know my association with athletics, as a player and a coach, has been most rewarding. I am certain each succeeding September will arouse pleasant memories and will raise many doubts as to whether the decision made was the right one.

This year ' s team lived up to the great tradition of powerful cross- country teams that has been established at Muskegon Heights High. The Tigers ended the dual meet season with a fine 10 and 3 mark, and captured the Valley Coast Conference crown. They then went on to become the first Heights cross-country team to place first in regionals. Throughout the entire year the Tigers dis- played the qualities of courage, perserverance, team spirit and fine sportsmanship. Many hours of hard work and dedication were put into the making of our championship team and we of the Oaks staff commend the boys and Coach Donn Westman for a job well done.

" The Little Tigers showed a lot of drive and enthusiasm throughout the season. Although the boys only won two games, the coaches were very pleased. A lot of games are won just on the desire to win and this the coaches feel each boy had. With the experience the Little Tigers gained this year, the J.V. and Varsity teams can look forward to receiving a lot of talent in the future. We wish to congratulate Mr. Hornik, Mr. Pamer and the entire Freshman team for a job well done. 118 Freshman Basketball 3rd Row — Turner. Hill, Vines, Blake, Farkas, Cianton 2nd Row — Neal, Gordon.

The Muskegon Heights track team took eight first and six second places of twelve events, a splendid accomplishment. This outstanding track team is the result, at least in part, of the fine coaching by instructor, Miss Maxine Cobb, a graduate of Muskegon Heights High School where she, herself, was an outstanding athlete and tennis champion. We, the student body of Muskegon Heights, are proud of this fine track team and their coach.

It is impossible, therefore, to forecast the results at this time, except to say that so far it has been enthusiastic, with more depth in hitting, pitching, and fielding than previous teams of recent years. Coaches Roger Pfundt and Assistant Larry Rueger were very pleased with the improvement shown this spring. After a slow start, the Tigers have been gradually building up to a position of power in the Conference.
