This is our annual. Within its pages is a record of the
things we did and the people we knew in high school.
Time will pass, and our lives will change: but this
annual, having taken its place among precious keep-
sakes, will always remind us of the happy and profit-
able years when we were growing up.

Mrs. Verna Luther, a distinguished-looking and charming mem-
ber of our high school faculty, has supervised our music depart-
ment for many years.
Every year, her choral groups and a capella choir present
exceptionally fine programs. The vocal music presented at the
spring Music Festival is year after year appreciated by the public.
An operetta is often on her entertainment list, as was "An Old
Spanish Custom" of last year.
This year our cr capella director is busier than ever, organizing
her weekly broadcasts and planning the spring concert given
She takes keen enjoyment in grand opera programs, and her
work with students in her Music Appreciation classes has done
much to give others a like enthusiastic appreciation of good music.
But not only on campus is Mrs. Luther well-known. She is identi-
fied with the best musical activities in the community. She is
prominent also in professional women's groups, and is a former
president of Quadrangle Club.
Her willing cooperation and her love for music make her a
beloved and admired teacher and friend.
To her as such, we dedicate this annual.
MRS. VERNA LUTHER
From Our President
Carl Iohnson is the young man chosen by his classmates to
lead them thru their last and most important year of Muskegon
Senior High. His first interest in student councils showed up
while in the junior high Council as a representative. During his
senior days. Carl has held or is holding these offices: Student
Council president: Senior Class president: Hi-Y Tulip District
president, and last but not least he is one of our cheer leaders.
Aside from these he is also on the Said and Done staff. local
Hi-Y. and the Co-ed Council. In his "spare" time he may be found
at the boys' lobby desk at the "Y" or playing the piano with his
all-student dance band. the Solidaires. Patriotism is evident in
Carl's enlisting in the AAF when he was a young seventeen.
When asked why Carl was chosen the graduate most likely
to succeed, his associates called attention to his thoroughness,
dependability, capacity for leadership. and unfailing courtesy.
Whatever may be the future field of activity into which our presi-
dent goes, these qualities will be definite assets.
From Our Editor
Said and Done's capable editor for the past year has been
Jerry Sanford, who, in addition to carrying a full academic load.
has very ably supervised the school monthly magazine and this
Work such as this entails a great deal of after-school time and
energy, and it has been difficult at times for one to see where
Ierry gets it, but he always manages to get the job done, and
done well. His outside activities are many and varied, for Ierry
has been a member of the Debate class and team for his three
high school years: he enjoys sports such as sailing, fishing, and
tennis: and-well, after all. a fellow doesn't have to account for
every extra minute! Even in Iunior High Ierry was kept busy at
all times. for he was Student Council president and an active
member of Journalism class-editor of the Hi-Spi a couple of
times, too. 5
Ierry has been a loyal worker with plenty of good ideas: and
we of the senior class, or more especially of Said and Done staff.
salute him. Good luck, Mr. Sanford!

Youth Proves ltseff . .
America was not a military nation: every-
one knows that. To us militarism was strictly
foreign--sornething in which European and
Asiatic countries indulged. Then, in 1941.
we were drawn into a world conflict, and our
abhorrance of war became immaterial. We
were forced to meet our enemies on their
We were inexperienced, unprepared. Im-
mediately there was doubt as to whether the
American people had the backbone and
stamina necessary to prosecute the grueling
war with which we were faced. Some authori-
ties openly hinted that there might have been
elements of truth in the enemy assertion that
we were a weak and decadent nation. These
skeptics feared that our comparatively soft
peace-time status had killed our endurance.
American civilians, they predicted, would not
back the war with sufficient spirit. They ques-
tioned the capacity of the American people to
sustain losses, to cling to the objectives of the
war despite early adversities. But the great-
est of the doubts which harried those responsi-
ble for the fate of the nation concerned the
military fitness of young Americans. Our
enemies had scoffed when we began enlist-
ing armies. They derided our young men:
drugstore cowboys, they called them. And
many of us wondered-Could young Ameri-
cans, having had so little background for a
military life, stand up to and defeat the high-
ly trained and disciplined annies of the en-
emy? Would the home front back them up?
Today, in the fourth year of war, we have
the answer to those questions. The American
home front? Yes, the home front has en-
dured-and retaliated three-fold. Look at pro-
duction! More planes, ships, and munitions
have been produced than was thought pos-
sible earlier. But production records do not
tell the complete story. Millions of Ameri-
cans have helped to fill the nation's blood
banks and to put over the war bond drives.
They have rolled bandages, prepared boxes
for men overseas, and provided recreation
for servicemen here in this country. Through-
out the United States the very people who
would have been last to condone an unneces-
sary war have willingly donated their sons.
money. blood, and services to preserve Amer-
ica from those who would destroy her.
We are often inclined to think that, because
most of the actual fighting is done by the na-
tion's youth, all credit for the home front effort
should go to adults. However, we will find
that young people, too young to fight, are do-
ing their share to win the war at home. Our
own community is an example. OVG1' sev-
enty per cent of Muskegon Senior High
students are working in addition to attending
school. Many of them are directly engaged
in war work. And the service they are rend-
ering the nation by supplanting men now on
the fighting fronts is apparent. The students
engaged in non-essential work are, neverthe-
less, indirectly aiding the war effort by help-
ing to keep business functioning at home.
These working students, through their pur-
chases of war bonds, are contributing to the
eventual victory of our armed forces. The girl
students who are donating their time to the
hospitals as nurses' aids andkeeping house
for war-working adults are doing an essential
and commendable service to the community.
by which nurses can be freed for the war
fronts. Also to be commended are those
students who are performing other such vol-
untary wfsfk as rolling bandages. Yes. the
young people on the home front-in Mus-
kegon--are doing their share.
The greatest fear at the war's beginning,
that young American manhood could not
match the enemies, has been completely dis-
pelled. Our young fighting men are proving
today that they are able to endure the en-
emies' worst and press forward until their ob-
jectives are taken. What occurred on Iwo
Jima is perhaps the greatest monument to
the fortitude of our young soldiers. It takes
one's breath away to realize how close Amer-
ica came to losing the war and. then. how
courageously our soldiers reduced the odds.
once in favor of the enemy, to the point where
now defeat for them is inevitable.
Muskegon as a community has helped to
fill the ranks of those who have taken us so
far up the road to victory. Every semester a
number of fellows with whom we grew up
leave for military training. Then in a few
months we read that one of those fellows.
who played on the football team. who sat
behind us in study hall, who took his girl to
the Saturday night dances, is fighting in Ger-
many or the Philippines. Maybe he has been
cited for bravery-he might have given his
life. .And we are proud of him.
We can be proud of America: it is now
clear that we will triumph in this war because
of the same qualities that have made Amer-
ica the country it is today. the qualities that
will keep America strong in the future. And
today, more than ever before, America should
recognize the debt it owes to its youth. Amer-
ican youth has proved in this war, to its ever-
lasting credit, that it is courageous in face of
adversity, efficient when work is to be done.
and prepared to meet the future.
Class Advisers . . .
MISS ALICE PRESCOTT MR' WILLIAM DENTON
' MR.V. STANLEY ROLFE
Our class has been exceedingly fortunate
in having three such well-qualified advisers
as Miss Prescott, Mr. Denton, and Mr. Rolfe.
They have undertaken the numerous tasks
incidental to their positions with the fine ei-
ficiency and spirit which mark them as out-
standing members of the faculty. Through
their time and effort they have contributed
much to make the important final events of
our high school years successful and impres-
sive. We sincerely appreciate all they have
done for us. '
These ,Men Determine Policies
BOARD OF EDUCATION
Mrs. Lucille Koehler lSecretaryl, Mr. C. L. Arneberg, Mr. L. L. Booth. Mr. A. D. Brainard tAss't Supt. of Schoolsl. At-
torney Lou Landman. Dr. W. B. Steele tPres. ol Board oi Educationl. Mr. F. A. Almy fDirector oi Art Galleryl. Mr.

The group oi personalities pictured above is
not so well known to us graduates as the
teachers and administrators with whom we
have associated more closely: nevertheless,
these people have stood behind our school
system in their various capacities, making the
policies which have guided our education.
For their part in that great learning process
we are grateful.
The Years Have Been Good
Three short years-how short they seem
when compared with the totality of life's ex-
istence. But as for fun fever since those girls
made us learn how to dancel and actual
Cmuch to our chagrin, those teachers actually
expected us to studyll, who could ask for
three better years? Ever since we conducted
our first landing operation in the early days
of September, 1942 fa shock from which our
administrators have never yet recoveredl. we
have been looking forward to that evening
when we may grasp our diploma firmly in
our right hand and whisper to our inner self.
"Never thought this would happen when 1
was in kindergarten-but here I am!"
' Our history as a class has been a unique
one in that it has been so greatly influenced
by the external factor of war. Ever since those
man-made birds dipped their blood red wings
and rose into the rising sun to loose their un-
holy burden upon an American outpost-
ever since graduates of former years began to
experience the insane shriek of shrapnel in
unheard-of places, our nation, our commun-
ity, and our school have been undergoing a
series of changes which have profoundly al-
tered their composition.
Almost immediately after the declaration of
war the physical education program was
vastly enlarged to include all boys who would
soon be eligible for conscription. Somehow
we managed to escape those first-aid classes
where everyone, professing ignorance, de-
lighted in taping up his partner with roll after
roll of bandages. And who can ever forget
those swimming classes? We can only image
ine the trouble the girls had with their hair
after swimming--at any rate the results were
too horrible to be described here. None of the
fellows ever made a scientific count of the
number of pints of chlorinated water he gulp-
ed during his swimming class, but in between
Coach Driscoll's shouts of "Sharks! fSplash!
Splash!! . . . Planes! fGlub! Glub!l" the figure
must have climbed rather high in his imagi-
Gym was another never-to-be-forgotten
class. After an hour of doing leglifts, situps,
rope climbing, dips, pushups, and of running
around the gym for "Two" minutes fit was
reallv fivel, we fellows felt as if life's dying
embers had at last bumed out and went home
to rest for the next building-up period.
Another important result of the war has
been the greatly increased enrollment in the
mathematics and physical science depart-
ments. According to a survey made last year
visiting servicemen consider mathematics as
the course from which they have profited most
while in the armed forces. We always thought
that mathematics dealt solely with figures
farithrnetical or geometrical only, mind youl.
but since we heard Bob Ludwig and Glen
Garrison discussing symmetry and plane
curves in obvious relation to other figures,
end ever since we heard Bill Paulson mutter
something about feeling like "a frustrated
cone," we began to wonder. Mr. Cook's
physics classes have also enjoyed a boost
as a result of the increased wartime demand
for physics. According to the Mason report
students overwhelmingly voted the experi-
ments held in the darkroom on light as the
Due to the war, we see daily manifestations
of the acute manpower shortage in our city.
It is because of this fact that our school day
has been reorganized into seven-hour sched-
ule so that students may assume industrial
assignments in our city's factories and stores
besides attending school. 67 per cent of our
students are at present employed, which is
quite a change from the bleak depression era
of ten years ago. Partly as a result of this,
Mr. Stone has organized the courses in dis-
tributive education in the Hackley Annex.
more formally known as Stone's College
freally the former Wilson Schooll.
One sober reminder that war is no coke
partv which we should constantly keep in
mind is the gold chart bearing the names of
those who have made the supreme sacrifice
for our nation and for us. While our footsteps
have echoed throughout these halls that list
has silently and almost insiduously grown to
the somber total of 36 names.
As a class, we do have a lot of memories
pleasant and otherwise which have accumu-
lated during our three years in Senior High
School. Remember those penny dances we
used to have at noon when we were in the
tenth grade? It was then that those girls made
us learn how to dance so they could take us
to the first feminvite, "Starlit Square," pre-
sented by Carmenta. And don't forget the
Senate Canteen Dance with its blackout and
the Variety Show-with the party afterwards
-in May. While these highlighted the social
events of the year, we will all remember
Dorothea Lundy's beautiful rendition of the
"Lord's Prayer" in the Thanksgiving assembly.
But time flew past, and it seemed to be only
a few months before we were in the eleventh
grade. Remember Senate's "Rustic Rhythm,"
with its original decorations of a park in au-
tumn? The profits from the successful "lean
live"-where everyone rode back and forth in
a wheelbarrow during intermissions-were
sent to the Red Cross. And when our grand-
children ask about our high school days we'1l
always remember Clara Belle Gilmore as
Lucy Belle-the girl who wanted to hold hands
with two men for the logical reason that she
had two hands-and Mary Lou Shannessy in
Masque's hilarious comedy, "Ever Since Eve."
Speaking of plays, we can think of no line
which brought more laughs than Pat Van
Riper's famous quotation. "Oh, my God. . . "
in the Senior play, "American Passport." Gus
Dutton stole the scene with his bright red
hanky in "An Old Spanish Custom," the oper-
etta'in which Dorothea Lundy and Roberta
Berkel sang major roles and in which Virginia
Bell fButchl very effectively portrayed the
Irish washerwoman. Long-needed recreational
facilities were provided for high school stu-
dents in Ianuary, 1944 when the Caper Club
-"Hot Spot for Teen Agers"-was opened.
The football season started activities with
a good resounding shout- when Muskegoni re-
mained undefeated and untied throughout its
season to win the Southwestern Michigan con-
ference title. No doubt Nick Yonker's box of
Wheaties had a great deal to do with: it.
Speaking of football, we must realize the tre-
mendous sacrifices players make for the team
when we hear that Gale Fuller sacrificed his
pants and lim Garrison his teeth. At any rate
we had the pleasure of seeing the Redmond-
Iohnson trophy returned to its rightful place-
here in Muskegon Senior High School.
Two plays highlighted our class's dramatic
activities-Masque's "The House Without a
Key" kept us in goose shudders for hours.
Who would have thought that innocent Ierry
Johnson could have portrayed such a murder-
ous part. fBy the way, did anyone ever find
out if Mr. Saladine "found" his teeth?l Al-
though our senior play, "You Can't Take It
With You" has not been produced as this is
being written, latest rumors seem to indicate
that it's a three-act comedy about a mildly in-
Our first senior class party was held in De-
cember in the Junior High gym. Everyone en-
joyed the food, particularly Ierry Lewis. The
"Christmas Snowball" dance was also pre-
sented by our class, but it seems as if Lloyd
Mills was the only one to take advantage of
the mistletoe. Well, boys? Mired down by
studies, we can only begin to look ahead to
Senior week which includes the Senior ban-
quet, the Senior reception, and last but not
least, Commencement Day.
One of the red-letter days during the past
year was the day of the Victory Variety Show.
Sponsored by the Student Council in order to
increase war stamp sales, the show was high-
lighted by Jimmie Iames' band and Carl Iohn-
son's boogie-Woogie. We are indeed fortunate
to have had such able swing musicians with
us during the past year: the swing band has
filled a long-felt need in our school.
Another red-letter day was the Dude 'N'
Bums Day. Dressed in his Sunday-best every-
one came to school with polished shoes and
his most elegant manners-with some rather
amusing results. Imagine, for example, Iack
Fuller loitering outside the school building for
several minutes so that he could hold the
door open for Miss Bedker when she arrived.
The Conservation Club sent the boys running
when the first news about Sadie Hawkin's
Day was released. It seems as if Artis Long
lost no time in catching her man when she
pinned a carrot on Mr. Cook the first thing in
the morning. tNotice: he wore it all day.l We
were nearly stupified by those ethereal-smell-
ing onion corsages which a few wore, but it
was all for a good cause. We hope the Con-
servation Club can continue to do its fine work
on the school farm.
Several school organizations have managed
to take high honors this year: Said and Done,
under the able direction of Ierry Sanford and
Sally Conroy, the girl behind the rnan behind
the typewriter, has again received its first-
class honor rating. Our debate squad has also
gone farther this year than it has for several
years. Dick Lane. Ierry Sanford, and Seth
Warner are three seniors who have been on
the varsity team for the past two years. Music
is not to be left out of its share of honors
either, for there was plans of taking our high
school orchestra to the district contest in
March, and possible to the state contest in
April to see if that organization can secure the
Division I rating which he believes it capable
All in all-with the exception of those night-
marish exam weeks-its been a pleasant three
years. But now that we find ourselves being
graduated, we're a little reluctant to leave-
particularly so when we see everyone burst
into smiles at the thought of our departure.
But we'll be back, especially when we fellows
who will have exchanged our textbooks for
rifles come back in those snappy khaki and
blue uniforms for which we have traded our

Pen Points on Election
Nick Yonker, our football and basketball
captain, our former class president and cur-
rent sergeant-at-arms, is modest enough to
ask why he was chosen best all around. Well.
Nick, it's this way: you're a good sport with-
out showing off, you keep up your marks with-
out being a "drip grind," and you're always
dependable when there's a job to be done.
Yes, Nick, "You Made Me Love You." and I
am the Voice of the Senior Class.
During the personality elections, one fellow
was heard to remark, "I'm voting for Ann
Lewis for best all around. She's the 'Girl oi
My Dreams'." Ann, better known to most ot
us as "Ierry" or "Henry," is one of those rare
persons who is nearly always good-natured.
She has a host of friends and is kept busy
writing long letters to one in particular, mas-
culine gender. Ierry has been active in Car-
menta tsecretary in eleventh gradel. and was
vice-president of our class in l2B. So it your
dream girl is a gal like Jerry, you can be sure
that your "Dreams Are Getting Better All the
Elaine Kaule, class secretary, is one person
who will always be able to say, "I'm Getting
Somewhere Now." for she seems to know just
where she's going and the best road to take
to get there. 'Laine's an all-A student, a mem-
ber of Said and Done staff and of G. A. A..
and also holds down a part-time job in a drug-
store. She has dusky black hair and an in-
fectious giggle which she reserves for special
occasions, and she's truly a loyal friend. She
seems to have boundless energy and enthu-
siasm and ability-all the qualities that make
for success. We're betting on Elaine Kaule to
come out on top of the world!
After doing such a good job as president of
our class, we wouldn't be at all surprised if
Carl Johnson were a "Franklin D. Roosevelt
Iones." In fact, it was in anticipation of his
achieving the Presidency that Carl was elect-
ed most likely to succeed. He has been presi-
dent of nearly every organization he has join-
ed - Hi-Y, the Tulip District Hi-Y, Student
Council, Class of '45-he has been on Said
and Done staff for three years, and is an out-
standing cheerleader. He also has a student
dance band, the "Solidaires." Yet with all
this, Carl keeps his marks high: he has lead-
erzhip, energy, and tact. With so grand a
record behind him, isn't he very likely to
succeed in whatever field lie chooses? We
Ruth Mundi is always running somewhere
-to home plate, to the swimming pool, down
to the stadium for hockey practice, or all over
the basketball floor or tennis court. Ruth is
president of G. A. A.. and really goes all-out
for all girls' sports. Besides those sports al-
ready mentioned, she is also interested in
volleyball and bowling. With all these sports,
how could she help but be "Breathless"?
lf your beloved happens to be Bob "Ace"
Ludwig, you're eligible to sing "My Beloved Is
Rugged! ror he certainly is the rugged type!
Wheaties and spinach may account for all
the muscles and the physique, but what can
account for the fact that Bob completely
ignores the femmes? He's one of the most
likable fellows we know, and he certainly is
a good sport. His interests center on sports-
football and baseball- and occasionally
tthree times dailyl on food. To sum it all up:
Of all the athletes in this place, Ludwig's our
choice, 'cause he's an "Ace."
If you hear several boys whistling "Oh.
You Beautiful Doll" with a faraway look in
their eyes, you can be sure that Marion Harris
has just passed their way. She's as cute as
a kitten-a classy little lassie-a slick chick-
a pert little skirt-or, in other words, the cutest
girl in our class. She's just a little thing, with
curly dark hair, rosy cheeks, flirtatious eyes.
and a teasing smile-brings out the protective
instinct in the male half of the student popu-
lation. Everybody loved her as Essie in our
Senior Play, "You Can't Take It With You.
Besides belonging to Carrnenta, she manages
to keep busy--need I say more? Perhaps it's
enough just to say that she has a Fuller life
than anyone else we know.
lf you should say, "You Must Have Been a
Beautiful Baby" to Dick Lane, he'd probably
be embarrassed, but it's the truth, s'help me!
Dick was the unanimous choice for best-look-
ing boy, and nobody raised an objection. He's
"tall. dark and handsome," with that elusive
air which appeals so to feminine hearts. He
really has earned another title, too-that ol
best actor, for he has had two leads in three-
act plays-Masque's "House Without a Key"
and "You Can't Take It With You." Although
Dick enjoys sailing, he plans to enter the
Army Air Corps-when they call him. Few
persons know that Dick is already a student
pilot-soloed in November, 1943. He has been
a debater for three years, and a member of
Masque for almost that long. That's where
the acting comes in again-if you ask us.
Hollywood had better be on its toes-it doesn't
know what it's missing! x
Ierry Sanford "Ain't Misbehavin' "-oh, no!
He's a Sir Walter Raleigh in saddle shoes-
best-mannered of our class. Seriously, though,
Ierry does have good manners. He's always
courteou to teachers and students-especially
those of the opposite sex. He opens doors for
you land doesn't slam them in your facel. he
always removes his hat upon entering the
building, he invariably has a cheery greeting
for you-all those "little things" that mean so
much but are so-o-o-o-o easy to forget. Ierry's
a debater, too, and editor of Said and Done.
By the time you read this, he will probably
have already left M. H. S. for the U. S. N.
Yep, he's going to be a sailor!
If there is one thing we'd like to say to
Catherine Oliver, it's "How Sweet You Are."
Kit is gracious, charming, and well-mannered
-the unanimous choice for this position.
Emily Post is her right-hand woman--Cath-
erine always is careful to pay attention to her
manners. She is an honor student, a Senator,
and a lot of fun. Don't be misled by her calm,
almost shy manner-haven't you seen that
twinkle in her eye?
"Anything Goes" with Roy Nelson. Maybe
that's an understatement, though it would be
impossible to think of a song title that would
be more descriptive of "Pee-Wee." There has
been talk of sending for the men in the white
coats, but they decided to let him graduate,
for it's rumored that Uncle Sam wants him to
help drive the laps out of the Pacific-or out
of their minds! Hoy's antics as a cheer-leader
were very effective in getting responses from
the crows. Pardon me-that's a typographical
error-the word is crowd. Everybody likes
Pee-Wee-and he's not as crazy as he some-
times seems, for underneath the wacky veneer
he really takes himself pretty seriously.
The witty remarks and rib-tickling sayings
of Norma Iager's come out with a "Crazy
Rhythm" of their own--you have to listen
closely so's not to miss 'em, unless you know
just what to expect. Her droll observations
have been known to send people into hyster-
ics, because they're usually pretty accurate.
And yet, if you didn't know her, you'd prob-
ably think she was just another nonnal, easy-
going high school girl, instead of a distinct
Personality. Norma's a wann-hearted and
generous friend, as her fellow G. A. A. mem-
bers will tell you--one our favorite people.

really deserves to be called class poet. Many
of us have seen her sit down at the type-
writer in room 101, gaze out the window, and
draw inspiration, which in no time is set down
in the forrn of a poem-as easy as that! Some
of Mary Lou's poems are serious, but her best
are perhaps the airy, humorous ditties which
flow profusely from her pen. Although she is
primarily the poet, no type of writing seems
to daunt Mary Lou, and for this reason she
was chosen to head the Said and Done liter-
ary department this year. e'She did the per-

known to turn out gruesome murder mysteries

First poem-written at the age of 10

I would perch upon a window-sill
And wait for the bell-waiting till
I could get a tiny glimpse of you-
Iust that could thrill me through and through.
And if the Fates were kind that day,
You'd even toss a smile my way.
And when my luck was running high,
You'd pause to speak-and I touched the sky.
But I am older, wiser now-
It's not my place to humbly bow.
I've learned a woman's artful wiles-
Little charms, vshy, teasing smiles.
At last my dreams have come to be,

Do you remember days we knew?
Soft spring hours-just we two
Wand'ring through an Eden wood
In a tender, gentle mood.
Talking, laughing softly, lest
We startle Nature from her rest.
All her domain a gorgeous show
For us to see. How could I know
In those brief hours that one day I
Would walk alone there beneath the sky?
Our world, once warm, is chill and gray,
For war-clouds keep the sun away.
You're gone, but I arn left behind-
My sole companion is the wind.
Trees nod their heads in sympathy,
Curious, whispering, "Where is he?"
They miss you almost as much as I-
Seeming to join my every sigh.
Men like you go forth to fight,
While the wind and I wait through the night.

'lt Takes all Kind of People to Malce Our World'
Each year since 1931 journalists have
edited the weekly school page in the Mus-
kegon Chronicle cmd have covered much of
the news of the campus. For a number of
years, a senior journalist has acted as school
page editor. Sally Conroy has very ably car-
ried this responsibility this year. She very
well illustrates the old saying "If you want
anything done well, ask a busy person to do
In addition to editing the school page, 1944-
45, she has been make-up editor of Said and
Done. making up the dummies, acting as
"1aison officer" between print and art depart-
ments, Dana's, and the staff room. Also, she
has been active in all girls' sports and organ-
ization activities on campus, and in 4 H and
C.A.P. work off campus. Sally has been on
Said and Done staff for two years, serving
first as girls' sports reporter and then co-editor
She has been ably assisted by Vivian Hodg-
ens, journalist and 'girls' sports editor, and
Ieanette Dunville, who has covered unex-
pected or difficult stories, edited both Chron-
icle page and Said and Done news, and
handled innumerable details concerned with

Bill Paulson's reputation as a gag-teller
stretches far and wide: in fact, it has been
stretched so much that it is wearing thin in
places. Nevertheless many persons have sug-
gested that he be appointed jokester laureate
of the school. Victims report that Bill's repre-
toire of jokes is nigh inexhaustable, that he is
able to reel them off hour after hour without
repeating a one. Consequently, they tell us.
no one can effect an exit by saying, "Wel1,
this is where I came in." The cream of Bill's
jokes have appeared for the past year in his
Said and Done column "Little Willie's Corn
Patch." And it is said that smiles have been
extracted from some students.
In the photo above Bill has just asked
Ierry Iohnson why they put a purple sheet
over a dead man-and has explained to this
baffled worthy that the reason they put a pur-
ple sheet over a dead man is because he
can't put it over himself. Evidently Bill couldn't
put over the gag any better than the dead
man could put over the sheet because Ierry
has not responded to his explanation that it
is time to laugh.
Discourtesy of the editor
Many young people of ability have been
graduated from Muskegon High, but few can
hold a candle to Seth Warner of our class.
'Seth is endowed with that winning pair of
attributes, talent and conscientiousness. Each
semester in high school he has tackled an
academic schedule that would put most of us
on the mats before the first round was over:
yet he regularly emerges with virtually all
A's. His principal academic interests are in-
clined toward the sciences at which he is par-
ticularly adept. However, this has not pre-
vented him trom scoring one oi the highest
speed records in typing ever made by a stu-
dent of this school.
As a musician Seth is outstanding, playing
the piano, organ, violin, and flute. He plays
the violin in the West Shore Synphony Or-
chestra and school orchestra and, after a sum-
mer studying the organ at Chautauqua, New
York, secured the position of organist at the
First Baptist Church which he now holds.
To add variety to his numerous fields of ac-
complishment, Seth took up debating and was
a member of the varsity squad for two years.
His abilities in this field were extended to the
school stage when he took part in the 1945
Masque play, "House without a Key." We
well remember his highly humorous charact-
erization of the detective who had "lost his
teeth in the thea."
Seth, furthermore, has shown himself to be
a writer of no mean ability, having contributed
a goodly amount of high-caliber copy to the
Said and Done.
Personally Seth is an affable, well-manner-
ed chap with a keen sense of humor. So who
knows? We may read in the newspapers a
few years from now that Seth has made his
mark in the field of-. Well, you name itl

M. H. S. Band on Review .
Again this year our M. H. S. band has been
a very busy organization. It has played for
everything from boat launchings to a Vice-
President of the United States. Our school
is indeed fortunate to have such an outstand-
ing band as this, thanks to all its 116 mem-
bers and its capable director Mr. William
Stewart, who has been directing our band for
Now, just for memories' sake, let's journey
back the past school year, and review some
of the unforgetable events of this group.
Remember last September, October, and
November when we all were cheering the
red and white colors at the football games
and pep assemblies. Then, at the half-time
of the game we were entertained by a high-
stepping crack band. Yes, we'll all remember
the Four Freedom formation, the eagle with a
service flag commemorating our friends in
the service, the largest paper map fonnation
of the United States, the Navy-Army "E" flag
maneuver honoring Muskegon as a top in-
dustrial city: oh, we could go on indefinitely
reminiscing at the half-time, but let us travel
on and recall when our band took high hon-
ors, at the University of Michigan stadium at
Ann Arbor. That was an honor few bands
are given, and our band really gave an un-
Then, the band members have their share
in the patriotic part of everyday activities.
They paraded and gave a noon hour concert
for the opening of the Continental War Bond
Drive, played for the Wounded Servicemen's
program, and . . . they even played for a
political rally when Henry Wallace spoke
here. The band also played when Eric Iohn-
ston, president of the United States Chamber
of Commerce, visited this city.
"In the air, at sea, or on land,
lf you need good music, call on the M. H.
It's quite evident that this must be the slogan
of the people of Greater Muskegon. For, once
this past winter, at the Mart Dock, the band
was tooting away for the launching at sea of
the "Paul Bunyan." Then, when the first
signs of spring were out, away they went to
play for the Brunswick Glider air show at
the County Airport. And now, on land again,
they have just recently completed two grand
concerts, the mid-season concert which was
held April 5, and the spring concert in May,
It was at these two performances that they dis-
played splendid musicianship and fine enter-
tainment. lThanks to their director they came
out on top againll
Before we reminisce any further, we'll stop
a second and chat about that special "Dude
'N Bum's" day assembly, when the band
played an hour program for us. Everything
was played, from the high brow classics to
a piece which made all of us howl with de-
light! CYou know, the one called, "At The
Gremlin's Ball"?J And, there was also a sim-
ilar program for the Iunior High students re-
Well, as our day dreaming comes to a
close, we probably haven't covered every-
thing, but we will all agree that these were
some of the highlights of the year. It was
fun reviewing this for you, for our band is
one we are all proud to have associated with
us. It is an organization which we know will
come out again next fall as a leader in music.
So, from all of us seniors to all of you band
members who are staying on. and to Mr.
Stewart: We want to say, "Keep up that
splendid work and we'll be looking for you
next September '45."

Girls' Sports Varied .
HOCKEY-Field hockey began the latter part of Sept., with 35
girls reporting under the supervision of Miss Margaret Hazelton.
After 5 practice games, teams were formed.
The seniors elected Donna Cornell for captain, and other

Anderson: and freshmen, Virginia Anderson.
The juniors won the tournament by edging out the seniors l
to 0. Eleven seniors came out: Virginia Bell, lean Card. Sally
Conroy, Donna Cornell, Vivian Hodgens, Harriet Hoeker, lean
Lackson, Margaret Iohnson, Ruth Mundt, Marie Pascoe, and Anne
Tall, dark-haired Marie Pascoe though only out for hockey for
one year showed considerable proficiency in the game. Because
of illness this year Marie was not able to participate in any other
sports or G. A. A. activities though she was an active member
until this year.
VOLLEYBALL-The volleyball championship this year was won
by a l0th grade team captained by Maxine Gudelsky. In a dead-
lock for second were: Margaret Iohnson's 12th, Kay Kimball's
llth. and Betty Anderson's 10th grade teams.
Fourteen graduating seniors reporting were: Betty Banner,
Virginia Bell, lean Card, Sally Conroy, Donna Comell, Vivian
Hodgens, Harriet Hoeker, Jean Iackson. Margaret Iohnson, Elaine
Kaule, Ruth Mundt, Anne Potter, Dolores Smith, and Violet Tourre.
Miss Reid was adviser.
Harriet Hoeker is one of the outstanding volleyball players in
the Senior Class. Many times she has gotten the ball over the
net for that one point which was needed. Harriet has participated
in all G. A. A. sports and activities.
BASEBALL-the main outdoor sport, was enjoyed by ll seniors.
Games were played at Wilson Field and Park Avenue Field.
There were 10 teams and captains were: 12th Ruth Mundt, Betty
Nienow, llth Kay Kimball, Natalie Haverkate: 10th Sally Collinge,

Eleven graduating seniors who came out were: Virginia Bell,
lean Card, Sally Conroy, Donna Cornell, Nettie Foster, Vivian
Hodgens, Harriet Hoeker, lean Iackson, Margaret Iohnson, Ruth
Mundt, Anne Potter.
Popular and well-known Sally Conroy has gained recognition
for her ability to smack the ball into the outfield. She is make-up
editor of Said and Done and is school page editor for the year.
Sally is an active member of G. A. A. and is a participant in
GOLF--For the first time in the history of M.H.S. golf was in-
augurated for one of the girls G. A. A. activities. There was about
tive weeks of it.
Vivian "Viv" Hodgens has played golf for the past three years
and was selected the outstanding golfer of the season. She is a
third semester journalism student, on staff of Said and Done and
is sports reporter and publicity manager of G. A. A. "Viv" also
participates actively in all sports.
BASKETBALL-The senior team captained by Anne Potter, unde-
feated through 8 games, won the girls basketball championship
from a junior team led by Hazel Gudelsky. Hazel Gudelsky's
team took second place and third place was tied by Dora Ann
White's junior team and Kathleen Springsdorfs sophomore team.
Thirteen senior girls played the season through. These girls
were: Betty Banner, Donna Bosch, lean Card, Sally Conroy.
Donna Cornell, Vivian Hodgens, Harriet Hoeker. lean Iackson,
Margaret Iohnson, Elaine Kaule, Ruth Mundt, Anne Potter, and
Dolores Smith. Miss Harriet Reid was the adviser.
Any time you hear "Hey, Diamonds," you can be sure it
comes from Anne Potter who has been selected for her ability to
play basketball. Annie has not only played basketball after

FOOTBALL COACHING STAFF
left to riqht: Harry Potter. Webster Cutler. C. L. Redmond, and Carl Andsrssn.
A man who is admired and liked by all
the faculty and students is Coach Leo Red-
mond, more familiarly known as Tiny.
Coach Redmond came to Muskegon in
1925. and since then has done great things
with our football, basketball, and track teams
ln his twenty years of coaching football the
Muskegon Big Reds under Coach Redmond
have scored 3,559 points to 820 for opponents,
won 142, tied 13, and lost 25 football games.
won seven state championships, 1926, 27, 28,
35, 36, 42, and 44. In basketball, Muskegon
under Coach Redmond won two state cham-
pionships, 1927 and 1937, and were runner-
ups in 1926, 36, 41. The team in 1937 was un-
Coach Redmond is at the present time di-
rector of physical education programs for the
whole city school system.
In his earlier life Mr. Redmond attended
Kalamazoo St. Augustine School in the 9, 10.
and ll grades, and in his senior years Kala-
mazoo Central and graduated from there.
During his senior year at. Central he played
tackle on the football team and Won his letter,
he also played on the state champion basket-
ball team Central had that year 119183. After
graduation Coach Redmond had three and
one-half months of training in our equivalent
of V 12. After this time he received an honor-
able discharge. From December 1918 to Iune
1919 he worked in a paper mill as a paper
maker. After this he attended the University
of Detroit for one year, where he was injured
in football. ln 1921-22 he went to Kalamazoo
Western Normal: while there he was assistant
in the chemistry laboratory and so worked
his Way through college. While attending
Normal he played football and. in 1922 was
captain of the undefeated, unscored upon
team. He also won his track letter. Coach
Redmond graduated, majoring in chemistry.
and minoring in physical education. He
taught chemistry, algebra, and geometry at
Harbor Springs, Michigan, in 1923-24-25.
Coach Harry Potter came to our high school
in 1927 after winning his letter in football at
Western Normal College. He coached second
team basketball and football for many years
and is now backfield coach for first team foot-
ball and has been first team basketball coach
for two years. Eight years ago Coach Potter
organized the baseball team. During the past
three years Muskegon teams have won forty-
nine straight games, and this year the team
is hitting for the fiftieth consecutive victory.
These successes have earned the Muskegon
High baseball teams three consecutive -South-
western Conference championships.
That good looking young man you've seen
on the bench during the second team games
this year is our new coach, Carl Anderson.
Coach Anderson came to Muskegon' this fall
from Cadillac, Michigan, and went right to
work with the Little Reds. He had a suc-
cessful season this year, winning all the
games except one. Likewise, he coached the
Little Reds in basketball and won a good
percentage of the games. Besides this, he
teaches some junior high gym classes, and
some senior high boys have him for that
dear old class of swimming. All the boys
who have come in contact with Coach An-
derson, either on the team or in classes, know
him, not only as a good coach, but as a like-
able fellow as well.
Coach Anderson was born some years ago
in Traverse City, Michigan. He attended
high school there and won his letter. Later
he entered Western Michigan where he won
his letter and his B.S. degree. He has also
coached at lonia and Plainwell before joining
our coaching staff. Sorry, girls, he's married
and has two small children. We want to wish
Coach Carl Anderson the best of luck, and
we hope he has many more successful
seasons for Muskegon.
Muskegon's Big Reds this year had a fairly
successful basketball team winning six and
losing eight in the regular season. In the
Regional tournaments the team won their first
game from Grand Rapids Creston and drop-
ped their second to Holland. The scores of
the games are as follows:

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 1944
MUSKEGON BIG REDS
The students and faculty of Muskegon High
School and the citizens of Muskegon can
well be proud of Coach C. Leo Redmond's
and Coach Harry Potter's 1944, Muskegon
High football' team, who went through the
1944 football season undefeated and untied,
thereby earning the titles of Southwestem
Conference Champions cmd Michigan State
ln the first game of the season Muskegon
traveled to Grand Rapids with a host of fol-
lowers and started out the season right by
defeating Grand Rapids Catholic Central 13-0
thus avenging last year's stunning upset.
In their first home game the Big Reds had
an exciting game with Flint Central, winning
9-6. Muskegon led 9-0 at the half, but Flint
made a great comeback, scoring one touch-
down, and were inches short of another when
the final whistle blew. -
The Muskegon team also had all they could
do to beat Grand Haven 13-7 in an early
season game. Grand Haven capitalized on a
fumble and scored on a fancy pass play.
Muskegon trailed 7-6 for nearly two quarters.
the only time during the season that the Mus-
kegon team was behind. But Muskegon
scored a touchdown in the last thirty seconds
Benton Harbor also gave Muskegon fans
a scare when they outplayed the Big Reds
slightly but lost to Muskegon 6-0. The huge
crowd at the game that night was thrilled by
the bright glow in the sky, of the big fire down
town lumber company.
The Big Reds earned a trip to South Bend
by routing Holland by the score of 39-0. Then
on Saturdav they watched Notre Dame beat
The Big Reds really turned it on to take a
comparatively easy 19-0 victory over a pow-
erful, previously undefeated, and probably
over confident team from Jackson. After this
game Muskegon took the number one posi-
tion in state high school football and held
it from then on. It was our first victory over
Jackson in three seasons.
After two weeks' rest the Big Reds jour-
neyed to Kalamazoo and smothered the Kala-
mazoo Maroon Giants Z5-0.
On a rain-soaked field before a capacity
crowd of 12,000 fans the Big Reds took their
-most desired victory, beating their traditional
rivals, the Muskegon Heights Tigers, 12-0.

President Proclaims Peace
May 8, 1945
The war in Europe has come to an end. We
knew yesterday from the news reports that
today the war in Europe would officially end.
' We students came to school and attended
an assembly first hour. President Harry S.
Truman opened our program with his procla-
mation. He stressed the point that we must
"work, work, work." Then we heard the joy-
ous bells of Big Ben. Long had they been
silenced. Prime Minister Winston Churchill
spoke in his friendly robust way. Science had
brought the miles of separation between the
peoples to naught. '
Dr. Samuel Oliver of the First Congrega-
tional Church then spoke to the student body.
He brought out the spiritual aspect of the war.
Later in the day I heard many of the Allied
leaders speak. Admiral Chester Nimitz gave
the people the situation in the South Pacific.
Of all the speakers, King George of England
gave me the biggest thrill. He appeared to be

the most human speaker, his feeling was of
the righteous wrath, rather than one of victor's
conquest. All of the Chinese and French lead-
ers pledged their support to the cause of de-
feating the Iapanese. "It's the beginning of
the end of the war for Japan." All leaders
Our city celebrated the news quietly. In
London the celebration was tremendous. The

Peace has come in Europe. No, it really

until every conquered person can experience

Until the last two years very few peoplej
knew about the Conservation Club, and ifj
they did they didn't know what the club stood
for. The club was organized in 1940, but it
wasn't until this year that it became widely
known. Last fall the club organized a plant-
ing bee, and planted 6.000 trees at the High
School Farm. They also collected a number
of bags of milkweed for life-jackets. The club
sold, as it has in the past few years, the Con-
servation Stamps. As soon as school had
started after Christmas vacation, we were
asked to sponsor the refreshment stand at the
dances given by the Muskegon Recreation
organization. Everybody helped out, and we
had a variety of refreshments at the stand.
Then came the big dance which we had been
planning for months. The club put on a 15
minute skit to promote 'the Sadie Hawkins
Raid. Pictures were taken of the members of
the skit and published in the Detroit Times.
The dance was a huge success with about
six hundred and thirty people attending. The
club realized a profit of two hundred and
fifty dollars from the dance. In March two
imemberships were purchased to the larger
organization. the Muskegon Conservation
Club. The club also fostered two new organ-
izations, the Rifle and Pistol Club and the
Archers Club. In April the club took an after-
noon off for fire lane cutting at the High School
Farm and also the planting of another 6,000
trees. The Conservation Club also took on the
job of reseeding the school lawn and putting
up barricades across some of the short cuts
across the lawn. The club also is writing an
article for the paper the Muskegon Conserva-
tion Club puts out. Each member will receive
one of these free. Emblems and pins were
finally obtained so that members of the club
could be easily recognized. All in all, the
Senior High Conservation Club is in a fair
way of becoming one of the more prominent
clubs of the school. Fred Wilder, president.

Word from the USAFFE .
They have a term to describe the partici-
pants in this battle out here that sounds like
an excerpt from a movie thriller. USAFFE
means United States Armed Forces in the Far
East. That title may satisfy the military desig-
nators. but it would take many more words
to really describe this area.
Many of the islands are unmistakably beau-
tiful but to the serviceman they represent a
lonely, boring existence. To the city-dwelling
American, their eerie solitude is irritating. If
it weren't for the occasional rumble of a truck
or the drone of a plane they might seem un-
Once you've pierced the outer fringe of foli-
age, you would find the reverse is true. Under
the palms and coconuts are tents, trucks, and
men by the thousands. Unless it is a well
established base, the military aspect of uni-
formity is missing. The mess kits will be
dangling from a nearby limb, along with
some laundry. The vehicles will be parked
where they stopped, and the men will be
sprawled about indulging in three major ac-
tivities: sleeping, reading, or card-playing.
On the beaches, however, it is a different
story. The shores fairly teem with activity at
advantageous spots. Landing craft of all vari-
eties are beaching and retracting in a flurry
of surf and propeller wakes. Bulldozers roar
and sputter in their gargantuan way as they
grovel jetties to the ramps of the ships. Ieeps,
trucks, guns, and ducks rumble by the shore
road in endless procession, some of them be-
ing "swallowed" into the bellies of the ships.
Great quantities of boxes, bags, and drums
lie heaped not far from the shore.
Men sweaty, wet, and dirty labor relent-
lessly among the cargoes, preparing them for
the thrusts. They are those same brothers,
sons, and husbands, only they are dressed in
slouchy fatigues and have unshorn beards
and hairstyles. They move a little slower be-
cause of the heat, but they still accomplish
the tasks with the tenacity and fervor typical
of Americans. Added to this panorama are
the silvery birds zooming noisily over the
treetops from the nearby airstrip. Natives
wander among the activity, bartering, labor-
ing, or just watching with amazed and inter-
Out in the harbor lies a vast armada of
ships of every description. Smoke soars lazily
from their stacks and the air is filled with the
creak of tackles, the puff of winches, and the
Alice Hall shares lJroI:her's colorful
picture of life in the Far East:
clanging of tools. On the waveswept reaches,
the quaint, picturesque outriggers glide under
the power of plying paddles or a faded sail.
This, then, if you can but imagine is the scene
on any island where the cogs of war are
Of course, on a beachhead the thuds of
artillery, the thump of ack-ack, and the crack
of ships' guns is added. But besides these
ominous dangers and the tenseness, the scene
is much the same.
Mistake me not! This war is no pushover.
Men are dying and being wounded at every
moment. The skies are still dotted with enemy
aircraft, and in the seas lurk their submarines
and surface craft. Our valiant lads must fight
hard to survive, but they still do it with the
reckless American abandon. After the heart-
gripping attack by zooming planes, they can
still yell, "Set 'em up in the other alley-
this'l1 be a firing run!" They can still scamper
ashore for souvenirs from a downed Iap
plane, while artillery thumps short miles
away. They name their planes, jeeps, and
boats with satirical slaps at the enemy propa-
gandists. Sure, they get scared, but in most
cases the inimitable freedom of America has
molded them into men who want to live and
do so joyously, until they are stopped.
However, the above but scratches the sur-
face. In any tent, under any boat tarpaulin,
or beside any plane wing, the same subject
of conversation prevails-the states-home
and loved ones. If you could see our crew
lean over the rail so hopefully when the mail
arrives, you could realize how much they
think of you and their wonderful United States.
They love its freedom now that they are ab-
sent by military necessity. The separation
from loved ones has increased their devotion
to them: and this drab, lonely existence has
made America's juke joints, resplendent the-
aters, andnatural beauties become facilities
that will never again go unappreciated.
I could go on indefinitely, naming different
characteristics that appear over here, but cor-
respondents have vividly portrayed many of
them. Let us, then, just sum up the situation.
In many ways the men are tougher because
of the rigors of their lives here. Yet they still
smile at a little native waif, and have over-
whelming generosity for the adult population.
Civilian finesse and courtesy may have been
abandoned. but they easily meet and mingle
with all. In existing alone out here, they have
sacrificed and endured much, but they still
have the capacity to laugh and jest.
To you at home, I say there are some things
that must be done besides hoping and wait-
ing. You must write without reply. and often.
Keep them posted on their former industry.
the corner drugstore, and the kids scamper-
ing around the living rooms. Keep up that
stupendous production, and keep suppressed
the labor trouble-makers. They are a sore
spot, in our eyes. Protect for them their civil-
ian post-war rights-the simple things, not
many of the foolish handouts that can't sur-
vive. They love you deeply and think of you
constantly. Their quicker return depends on
your efforts, and believe me, for every wish
you have for reunion there is one amplified
tenfold here. Let such hopes be fulfilled
soon ...... . . . . Bill Hall Jr,
M. H. S. Graduate
On the Job fo the Last
When we analyze the machinery that has
made the Said and Done function this year.
two little girls of the staff, Dolores Smith and
Betty Banner, stand out as a dependable.
hard-working team. Little though they may
be, the girls pack a tremendous whallop when
it comes to getting things done-on time. Be-
ing close friends, Dolores and Betty enjoy
working together on assignments. Long after
the 3:30 bell one might find them together in
room 101 quietly and efficiently completing
one of their numerous undertakings. More-
over, they have proved themselves proficient
in many phases of Said and Done publica-
tion-from typing to ferreting out information
for statistical articles. We don't know what
Dolores and Betty plan to do after graduation,
but whatever it is, they will do it well. lt's
people like them that make the world go
Two valuable members of the Acapella who
have entered the service recently are Richard
Goodwin and Charles Vanderwest. The for-
mer from the tenor section and the latter from
the bass section are greatly missed.

Civil Air Patrol, and Auxiliary of the United
States Army Air Forces is a war activity that
many of our Senior High School students are
participating. Under Lt. Hubbell, the Muske-
gon Squadron commander, and his staff of
officers and non-commissioned officers the
cadets and senior members are taught navi-
gation, rneterology. Morse code. military cour-
tesy, the parts of the airplane and the motor,
military drill and the principles of guard duty.
The Tuesday evening meeting at Central
Campus and the Thursday evening meeting
at the Muskegon County airport of two hours
each include educational movies from the
War Department, talks by war veterans and
instructed classes in their selected courses
which give four hours of credit a week.
Cadets, 15 to 18 years of age, and senior
members, 18 years and older, are given fifty
hours of probation before being sworn into
the organization. Anybody interested in CAP,
who is over 15, citizen of the United States,
and interested in aeronautics please contact

Lois Kooi singing in the alto section .of the
Acapella Choir for three years, has been a
most helpful and valuable member. Not only
faithful attendance has born her record, she
has taken full responsibility for the assign-
ment and checking of the robes and has as-
sumed extra duties in connection with the
three operettas in which she has participated.
To her we extend the sincere appreciation of

Candy bars and corny jokes.

Brush cuts and long bobs.
Skipping classes for after school jobs.
Trying to get out of daily homework,
Old jalopies and "What a jerk!"
Swimming, gym, and making eyes,
Formal dances and little white lies.
Stirring up fudge and cutting up rugs,
Popular songs and biology bugs.
Swooning over Frankie and big bowties,
Drooling over Grable and Turner's eyes.

You never can tell what joy it may bring
To cr stranger, perhaps, that you pass on the
Or an old acquaintance you happen to meet.
Some smiles bring wamith to a stony heart.
Others cause troubles and fears to depart.

In the class of a man named Lake

As any student can make.
