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. cz ancnct fnumbcrta-ner!" EP 5 J Dedication 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 March 23. 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. 'N MRS. VERNA LUTHER From Our President CARL JOHNSON 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 JERRY SANFORD 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 annual. 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! Presen tm g the Seniors . . . E in ,gy-i .g ,, ., -Y .. vw x Standing L-R. Nick Yonker, Ellen Decker, Sergeants-at-arms. Seated L-R.

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 grounds-war. 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. Page thirty-three I .. Class Advisers . . . MISS ALICE PRESCOTT MR' WILLIAM DENTON ' MR.V. STANLEY ROLFE Page thirty-four 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.

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. Page thirty-filxe The Years Have Been Good Class History 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- nation. 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- Page thirty-six 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 most "profitab1e." 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- sane family. 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 of obtaining. 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 commencement robes.

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. wk 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 Time." .-A. :4 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- Page forty-six 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 think so. 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"? ST? 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. -:S 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 Sk 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! iff 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? it "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. W? 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. f 4 6 ev i N' Nj. Ning . ' -K Wu!-. lfb it 335 Hz.. , LV, 1 Ty. THANKS!

'Class of '45 "Through poetry l shall share life Mary Lou Shannessy, because of the fine quality of her contributions to Said and Done. 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- sonality write-ups in this annual and has been known to turn out gruesome murder mysteries when in the mood. rl' Spring rain, fresh and fragrant, hathes all the world, Leaving young plants with green banners un- furled. To be out in it, walk in it, gives me a thrill, Although realists claim l'll end up with a chill. But the thought of a cold is remote for today, As the rain strikes my face like the ocean's salt spray- Tenderly, gently, as the sea's friends express it- April's rain is so sweet that I long to caress it! -Mary Lou Shannessy the of my own times, of all times." First poem-written at the age of 10 One day Milady Spring awoke. "Alas," said she, "I fear I'm late, For flowers cannot grow, you know, Unless I'm there to blow On them, and make them wide awake!" --Mary Lou Shannessy sir 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, For just today you came to mel -Mary Lou Shannessy sir 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. -Mary Lou Shannessy Page fortylnine '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 it " 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 of news. 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 publication work. To much of the success, professional and social, achieved in the publications depart- ment. these three girls have made most gen- erous and valuable contributions. -Page fifty Iohn Kennedy is that all-important person who seldom, if ever, gets credit for his good work-the Stage Manager. He has directed the stage operations and lighting effects for countless plays and entertainments through- out his high school career, only recently ap- Q4 4 ESE ' ...- , . ...- rearing onstage when the curtain was up That m e m o r a b l e event occurred when Masque presented the one-act play "Antic Spring," and Iohnny played Robert. the poet on the picnic. Besides his Masque activities. Iohn is a prop and mainstay of Hi-Y, and also acted as master of ceremonies for the ex- change assembly we gave for the Heights. Mr. Kennedy, take a bow! ' W A b K my K X I N 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-.

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 nine years. 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- forgettable performance. 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. Page fifty-four "In the air, at sea, or on land, lf you need good music, call on the M. H. S. Band." 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- cently. 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."

Page fifty-five S' Ii'- lx, v mv i t 5 .391 Page fifty-six 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 team captains were: juniors, Hazel Gudelskyg sophomores, Marie 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 otter. 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, Fern Connell, Barb Patterson, Betty Iackson, and Ardis Flickema. 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 all sports. 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 school but was on the girls' basketball team for two years under the guidance of Miss Edith Hastings. Annie is a very active member of G. A. A. and she participates in all sports. BOWLING-With one week lelt to bowl the Torpedoes led the league with 25 wins and 9 losses. Muskies were in second place with 20 wins and 14 losses and Five Little Misses, third with 17 wins and 17 losses. V Three senior girls led the individual average column. These were: Anne Potter, 132: Donna Cornell, 123: Ruth Mundt, 123.

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- defeated. ' 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 Page fifty-nine 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.

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 Champions. 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 to win. 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 Wisconsin 28-13. 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. The 1944 Big Reds were led by Captain Nick Yonker, at quarterback: Dick Scholten, Bob Ludwig, Bob McNitt, Ted Barrett, and Charles Vanderwest, halfbacks: Bob Dutton and Dick Thomas, fullbacks: lack Younts, Gale Fuller, Bob Lintjer, and Tom Mason, ends: Don Bromley, Bob Anderson, and Bill Winters, tackles: Ray Sills, lack Fuller, and Bob Clark, guards: Eugene Campbell, center: and Dick Wright, Iim Garrison, lack Mahn, Dale Kelly, Kenneth Hoeker, Alfred Hermann.

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 'l . .QNX 5 'tt l w. 0,55 - U-.'n"'D 1 ni. Q-X 2 1- 1 V -.1 1 W , V. .. N 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 proclaimed this. Our city celebrated the news quietly. In London the celebration was tremendous. The Lights of Paris are on again, The White Cliffs of Dover are standing proudly, at home the Lights of New York and the Statue of Liberty are alive again. ' Peace has come in Europe. No, it really hasn't yet. There will be no peace in Europe until every conquered person can experience the Four Freedoms for which the countless died. I'm going, to do even more to support the war with Iapan. The people next door re- ceived a telegram last night. Their son had been killed in Germany, fourteen days be- fore the end of the war.

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 Page sixty-eight x I 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. I-Ii-Y admils no girls . 1 .

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- inhabited. 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- ested countenances. 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 Page seventy-eight 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 turned. 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 'round. 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. Seniors Talce to the Air 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 Lt. A. I. Moore, the personnel officer, for fur- ther information. 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 the choir. Page seventy-nine V.
