Board of Education This year the Board has been faced with many urgent and serious problems. Foremost among these is that of providing classrooms for the ever increasing enrollment in both the elementary grades and high school. All available room space was utilized this year since the first grade was divided into two groups and the P.T.A. kitchen made into a classroom. The Board has had plans drawn up for a building to house additional classes and these plans have been submitted to the citizens of the com- munity. The critical problem of finance was somewhat alleviated by a special election in August of 1947 in which the voters approved a three mill increase in the tax levy for the next two years. Improvements made during the year include the addition of one high school teacher as well as a vocal music teacher, the addition of two school buses, and the redecoration of the old building. w f Walter W. Scott, M.A., Superintendent Kelly Dunsmore, M.A., Principal We greeted our new superintendent, with anxiety and optimism as he accepted his new position here this year. He has proved to be a. real friend and a strong' and wise leader. We hope he has successful years in North Muskegon and continues to aid in the growth of our school. Mr. Dunsmore has not only been principal during all of the high school days of the graduating class but has also been their class advisor during their important junior and senior years. His guidance has kept many of us headed in the right direction and he has aided us in the choice of our various careers. ulxakwvvvvvv v-v-' wmv- v fzwg Katherine Birdsall, Charles B A Robert Chard, A.B., ,M.A Ol' t C ll .

Our class ficers were: Kendric Douglas, presidentg Jlores Huntoon, vice presidentg Beverly Gold- iith, secretary, and Agnes McPhail, treasurer. ir Student Council representatives were Lois rooks and Joel Wiener. Mr. Dunsmore was our ass advisor. We were initiated by the Sophomores on :tober 11. The initiation included relays and .ces between the two classes at the football eld. We got off to a flying start in high school f defeating the Sophomores. In December we were the guests at a party ven by the Sophomores. We participated in a magazine drive that was, 'ganized by the Student Council to raise funds, lr stage scenery. In addition to selling maga- nes, we contributed twenty dollars to help nance this project. We returned to school the next fall as Sopho- ores. We elected Joel Wiener president, and he as assisted by Norma Fox, vice presidentg everly Goldsmith, secretaryg and Don Miesch, easurer. Anne Fohlbrook and Joel Wiener :presented our class on the Student Council. Our ass advisors were Miss Plummer and Miss orman. In November came the most important day l a Sophomore's life-initiation of the Fresh- en. We forced our "victims" to carry out our amands, which included bowing to us and carry- lg our books. The day was brought to a close ith an assembly honoring f?J the Freshmen. We sponsored a dance in March. It was amed the Cottontail Jump, and was a success. After a summer's rest we returned to school s Juniors. We were led by President Bob Bos, 'ice President Don Miesch, Secretary Beverly oldsmith, and Treasurer Jim Scott. On the Stu- ant Council were Joel Wiener and Dick Salmon- son. Mr. Dunsmore and Miss Plummer were our class advisors. As Juniors we ordered and received our class rings. We selected an unusual ring style that had not been used before in North Muskegon School. In December we sponsored a dance, the Tinsel Tumble. The theme suggested by the name was carried out in the decorations. On April 24th and 25th we presented our Junior Play, "One Mad Night," directed by Mr. Chard. It was a mystery-comedy about a play- wright who one night found his home occupied by a group of lunatics. To conclude our Junior year, on May 29th we sponsored the annual Junior-Senior dinner-dance in the Seniors' honor, at the Occidental Hotel. Our Senior year was our busiest and most important year. Our class officers were: Jim Scott, presidentg Elaine Phillips, vice presidentg Delores Cole, secretaryg and Arthur Schattie, treasurer. Joel Wiener and Bill Putnam were our Student Council representatives. Our class ad- visors were Mr. Dunsmore and Mr. Van Hoesen. Our class colors are black and silver, and we selected as our class motto: "The past is forever gone Q the future still our own." Early in the year the Annual Staff was selected, with Joel Wiener and Elaine Phillips chosen as co-editors. On November 20th and 21st we presented our Senior Play, "A Case of Springtime," under the direction of Mr. Chard. It was a comedy about a high school boy who was in love with the princi- pal's daughter. During the year we sponsored two dances- on January 31st and on April 23rd. Our last week at school was a whirl of activi- ties. On May 28th we were honored bythe Juniors at the J unior-Senior Recreation. Then came Bac- calaureate, the Senior Assembly, and, finally, Commencement.

MANAGERS Ray Cole, Claude Easterling The Thinkers! Here we come! P4 r 0 UE AGM As a memorial to a very successful season, the Nor.semen were awarded the Western Michi- gan Conference trophy. This trophy is to be placed on exhibition along with many other awards earned by winning athletes in their par- ticular fields such as track, baseball, basketball, football, tennis and golf. The three men above, representing this year's football squad, are the two co-captains of 1947, Ken Baars and Dale Pulsipher, and Coach Paul Moyes, who has man- euvered his team to their many decisive wins. The co-captains elect for 1948 are Don Miller and Tom Mitchelson. TIIE TRUPIIY He1'e's wishing the 1948-49 grid team the best of luck from the class of '48, and hoping that many more athletic awards may be placed in the memorial cases bedded in the halls of the North Muskegon High School.

'Schalk, Earl Mig ers, Loach lllllllmll00TBALL The thud of a tennis shoe against a football and, a rip of the football pants was heard once again in the fall, as Earl Myers, varsity basketball and track coach, took over the job of teaching the tiny Norse the fundamentals of football and start- ting them on the way up the ladder to the varsity. The season opened with two foes. strictlv out of the "Little Norse- men's" class, Angell and Bunker of Muskegon, tip- ping the scales 20 to 6 and 20 to 75 next a school of 4 - our own size and from the varsity conference, Monta- gue, felt the sting of the "Little Norsemen" as they fell 18 to 0 for the first vic- tory.A.gainst another school of our class, the team made its power felt as it lashed out with a 26 to 12 victory over Grand Haven. Still trying to play giant killer the little men took on Cen- tral of Muskegon and turn- WHAT'S THE SCORE? ed in a very creditable job, by holding the Mus- kegon Jr. High Champs to a 13 to 7 victory, and it was a moral victory for us. The last game of the season and back in our own class, against Mon- tague, resulted in a score in favor of the tiny Norse, 19 to 0. On the squad this year were 17 ninth graders, 7 eighth graders and 4 sev- enth graders. Jr. High let- ters winners were Co-Cap- tains, B. Hoxie and D. Ven- to, K. Mitchelson, B. Dup- lissis, H. Sherwood, D. Mc- Ewen, G. Schofield, E. Cilla, L. Garber, P. Bos, J. Arntz, G. Mahoney, B. Simonelli, J. Upman, B. Hassinger, E. Dault, B. Garber, J. Wag- envoord, B. Munroe, G. Schalk, T. Natazel, B. Le Gard, N. Ferris, D. Sodini and B. Schultz for Jr. High manager. Other boys that finished the season were: J. Baars, J. Beardsley and D. Proctor. Mr. Myers, Coach: I. Scott, K. Douglas, C. llobben, IJ. llos, ll. Leafslrxmd, M. Hzmd, K. llzmr-, j. llxener, R. llos, D. Fill. A schedule of fourteen games and entry in the district basketball tourney was slated for the Norse basket tossersas they opened the sea- son and initiated the new score board purchased by the Student Council. The usual Norse bas- ketball victory habit wan- dered off the beaten path this season as Coach Earl Myers, starting his fourth season at the helm, put a team on the floor that showed flashes of offensive power and some classy de- fensive ability. Starting with one veteran, few re- serves, and green material, the team that appeared on the floor was a scrappy and fighting one, eager to learn and always gave a good account of themselves. BIG MAN, BIG LOAD VARSITY Ill KETBALL True they lost more than they won, but they played to their best ability, advanced fast, gained valuable experience and should be bouncing back up the victory path in another year. The over all bright spot of the season's play was the team work and fighting spirit that ran high and was shown as the boys gave their all through- out the season. Very often the team turned in great first half battles in which their opponents were held even, but lack of experience often told the tale as the team cracked in the latter stages of the game. High- lights of play during the year that the Norse can point to are the games with Montague, St. Mary's, Shel- by and Newaygo. Whitehall VS.

To start off the year, the Council sponsored three very successful dances after football games. On October the 11th, the 'Pumpkin Plop," the main dance of the year, was held with Charlie Bird's Orchestra furnishing the music. Then when basketball season rolled around, the Council put on several very successful dances after each home game. In the early part of the first semester, a magazine drive was sponsored with gross sales coming to well in excess of seven hundred dollars. With the profits made from the drive, the Coun- cil was able to purchase for the school, a new camera, enlarger, and developing equipment. Also during the first semester a radio pro- gram was put on over WMUS, which stated the aims and accomplishments of the Student Council. Beginning the second semester, a loud speak- er system, mike, and automatic record player unit were purchased. Periodic locker inspections were held under Council supervision, and early in the second sem- ester a student improvement poll was held getting the student's opinion on what should be done to improve the school. The provisions stating that dramatic produc- tions would be requested to pay a certain percent- age of net profits was reinstated, in order to pur- chase new stage equipment. For the first time, our school became a mem- ber of the Inter-School Junior High Council of Greater Muskegon Schools. North Muskegon was represented by Tom Scott, Jack Marquard, Delores Cone, and Margaret Mercer. As another project, a cloak-room checking system was set up for use at school dances. In the spring of the year, the Council proposed an amendment changing the time of electing Student Council officers from the spring to the fall. The Student Council also furnished the school with a Christmas tree, kept school flags and piano in good condition, purchased new victrola records for school use, kept the school well sup- plied with soft drinks, and sponsored five fine assembly programs for the student body. The Student Council was very ably advised throughout the year by Mr. Dunsmore, school principal. st Row-G. Smith, B. Anderson, Secretary, B. Figge, B. Neinhuis, B. Berg- gren, N.-Ames, Treasurer, C.

As part of the National Organ- ization of Future Homemakers of America, the motto of F.H.A. is "Toward New Horizons." The girls sponsored sandwich sales and a popcorn sale. In No- vember mothers and daughters were entertained at a. potluck sup- per. Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson was chosen Chapter Mother. An ice-skating party on Bear Lake was planned as a winter ac- tivity. In January the group gave a play, "No Back Seat for Grand- ma," and a monologue, "She Thinks She Studies," for an assembly pro- gram. At the end of the year they had a beach party on the shore of Lake Michigan. The Photography Club has been one of the more active organiza- tions in the club program. This year pictures were taken in and around school stressing improve- ments that were needed. Slides showing the throwing of snowballs, gum in drinking fountains, run- ning for classes, overcrowded busses and lockers, and others were shown in an assembly in March. The Club brought speakers in to speak to them about various subjects related to their interests and they also took group class pic- tures in the grade school and sold copies to the pupils. The Junior Club, newly form- d this year, was made up of lighth Graders with several Jun- xr and Senior girls acting as ad- isors along with Mr. Chard. The roup functioned mainly along so- lal lines-with activities including iusical chairs, charades, plays, kits, coke parties and gossip. The group presented a mock adio program for an assembly. inging commercials, a quiz show, lr. Anthony, and Spike Jones made up the program. Senior and Junior girls acting as dvisors were Bonnie Schuitema, lelores Huntoon, Lois Miller, Ruth ,iley, and Jayne Peterson. The Noon Club was organized to rovide recreation f o r almost mree hundred students who must arry their lunches to school. The gym was set aside as the lace to eat with members of the lational Honor Society in charge E the sale of milk. Members of me group took. turns in checking me neatness of their eating place. After lunch varied activities of ie club included softball, basket- all, football and horse-shoes in rieir respective seasons.

These programs were then broadcast on Thursday evenings. Once every eight weeks North Muskegon was the Honor School, and two students read school news, while prominent members of the student body and faculty were interviewed. It is the hope of the advisors and stud- ents that the program will be con- tinued in the future. This program was under the di- rection and guidance of Mr. R. Chard. The members of the Jean Bap- tiste Recollect Chapter of the Na- tional Honor Society are chosen for scholarship, leadership, character and service. Milk sales at noon, money for the annual staff camera, Norseman stickers, a dance after the February 6th basketball game, and a cake and ice cream sa-le were the projects unv- dertaken for the year. The new members added in Feb- ruary were: Delores Cole, Arthur Schattie, June Hagstrom, Joanne Webster, Sarah Minshull, Frank Witt, Natalie Hughes, and Ruth Riley. This made the 1947-48 chap- ter the largest in the history of the school. North Muskegon students have present- rl a half hour broadcast over WMUS each londay afternoon. This activity has given large number of North Muskegon students xoellent radio experience, for students rang- ig from the fifth grade-directed by Mrs. hcile Scott-through the advanced French lass-directed by Mrs. Katherine Birdsall -have presented programs. Each week news was read by students nd some club or activity was saluted. On a aw occasions plays and other variety shows 'ere presented. The students wrote their wn scripts which varied from educational :pics to comedies. The participants did an excellent job lroughout the year. Programs were ar- mged as conveniently as possible on stud- its' free time. The programs were under ie direction of Mr. Robert Chard. The first proJect :or the year was to urchase clay pigeons and a hand trap. With iese the club practiced wing shooting down ri Bear Lake shoreline. After winter set in ie club members spent their time in the mop making fish pools, remodeling gun :ocks and other similar projects. When spring came once again the club Larted rifle practice at their range with sch of the twenty members kept busy either wading or shooting. The club continued to moot until the end of the year. N.

Scliuitem Twenty-two eager boys gath- ered in the shop last fall to form a Handicraft Club under the direction of Mr. Warren Thompson. The purpose of the club was to allow the members to pursue their own interests in the shop. Throughout the year the boys carried out many inter- esting projects. Some of the fellows surprised their mothers with unique lamps made from bowling pins, while others car- ried home book 'ends, ash trays, nut bowls, small sailboat models, and many other knick-knacks. A few of the boys inspired by an artistic touch, ventured into the jewelry field and came out with some novel aluminum rings which were soon in the posses- sion of some very lucky girls. At the end of the first semes- ter the club was reorganized with eleven members. The majorettes for this year were Charlyn VanDyke, Joanne Cihak, Ardis Bishop, Barbara Tarr, and Jean Dunn. This was the first year of twirling for all of them, and they were chosen last fall by Mr. Wirschem through competition. The flag twirlers were Bonnie Schuitema and Coral Woodhouse. This was O0ral's third year and Bonnie's second as twirlers. Dick Hester, acting as drum major, led the band. This was Dick's second year. During football season they marched with the Band before the games and at half-time. The Santa Claus Parade was one of the big events of the year in which they participated. They also participated in the Band Bounce held at school and the Tulip Festival at Holland, Michi- gan. The girls were kept busy during the winter filing and sorting music. Lung-power was never lack- ing at the eight football games, fourteen basketball games and twelve pep assemblies, which were held during the year. Twelve peppy members of the cheering section were on hand at all these events, leading the student body in rousing cheers. The group was organized at the beginning of the football season under the sponsorship of Miss Plummer and Miss Van Oss. All students who wished to go out for cheerleading met in the high school gym two weeks after school resumed in September. Miss Plummer, commercial teacher, and Miss Van Oss, Jun- ior High English teacher, were advisors. Joanne Webster, Lois Brooks, Lois Willbrandt and Anne Fohlbrook helped train the new cheerleaders for the football season. Try-outs for basketball season cheerleaders were held in N o- vember before the student body, and Joanne Webster, Senior, Beverly Baars, Sophomore, and Pearl Webster and Barbara Tarr, Freshmen, were elected. Many new yells were origin- ated and introduced to the stud- ent body during pep assemblies. The student body liked the new yells and responded enthusiasti- cally. The last game of the year found the cheering section back- ing the team in its hard-fought battle with unbeaten Grant. lst Row-L. Broo ks, A. Fohlbrook, I Hillbrimlt J NN cb-lei 2nd Row-R. Hester, C.

Each time an experienced operator showed a movie he was accom- panied by a novice who helped him and learned as he went along. In this way the number of capable operators increased. Clarence Kramer and Einar Baker made carts for the proj- ectors and sound boxes, which enabled the machines to be moved with greater efficiency. Both elementary grades and high school were served. With the purpose of creating more interest throughout our school in current topics, the World Problems Club was organ- ized. Many topics were discuss- ed this year, the most important ones being our discussion of for- eign aid, universal military training, freedom of the press, and Palestine partition. As club sponsor, Mr. Halmond acted as advisor on the various discus- sions that were held, while Frank Witt was general chair- man in charge of organizing dis- cussions. Having a total enroll- ment of about twenty members, the club met once a week during activity period to discuss and study the various current prob- lems mentioned above. Bi-weekly production of the NORSE STAR was a major project of the twenty-four mem- bers of the Journalism Class. The editorship rotated every three issues, being held during the course of the year by De- lores Cole, Gordon Gunn, Marva Ericksen, Lois Willbrandt, Bill Duell and Mary Dyer. Issues averaged nine mimeo- graphed pages, included write- ups of varied student activities, school announcements, humor, faculty news and illustrations. Operating f rom its own NORSE STAR office the staff typed and mimeographed its own copy, made every deadline and even provided subscribers with two extra editions. A few of the many girls who would like to take part in athletics at school were able to fit it into their schedules during Activity Period on either Wed- nesday or Thursday. The enroll- ment totaled twenty-eight and the girls were coached by Mrs. Van Eerden. The most interest and the most progress were shown in basketball. Folk dancing and volleyball were on the program during the winter. In the early fall and spring the girls enjoyed soft ball. lst Row-N. Fox, J. Mitchelson, I. Hansen, L. VN'illbrandt, M. Hadley, J.

"A Case of Springtime" Bill Putnam, as Bob Parker, played the leading role in "A Case of Springtime" by Lee Sherman, presented on November 20 and 21, 1947, as the Senior play. Bob, a typical teen-age high school stud- ent, is forever in a turmoil of trouble. Delores Huntoon, as Bob's girl, Joan Abernaker, has a difficult time keeping him out of trouble with her father-who is the high school prin- cipal. When Bob presents a magic show at school and has difficulty sawing Joan in two, things really begin to "pop," Even Bob's rabbits turned into chinchillas. But "All's well, that ends well" and every- thing does end well for Bob. The supporting roles were played by Bob Bos, Elaine Phillips, Ken Baars, June Hagstrom, Yvonne Carter, Joel Wiener, Cornelia Kramer, Dick Sorensen, Jim Scott, Beverly Goldsmith, Agnes McPhail, Bonnie Schuitema, and Bar- bara Joslyn. The production was directed by Mr. Robert Chard, faculty director and Delores Cole, stud- ent director.

It also presented a successful Winter Band Show and Band Bounce. Three soloists and five ensembles entered addi- tional competition festivals and furnished special music throughout Greater Mus- kegon for special occasions, assemblies, and broadcasts. CORN ET QUARTET D. Upman, P. Mallett, E. Odell, F. Witt, V. Sparkes. R. Ginn, W. Myers, M. Andersen, J. Hubbell The choir this year consist- ed of eighty members, direct- ed by Mr. Robert Wirschem. Their first activity of the year was the annual choir concert, "Keep On Singing," which was presented on Feb- ruary 24. The program was divided into two sections. The first was a group of secular numbers, including "Norse- men Hail," "Stout Hearted Men," "Gia.ninna Mia," and "Music When Soft Voices Die." The second group was composed of sacred numbers, including "I Heard a Forest Praying," "G o n n a Join," "Thanks Be to God," "Dark Waters," and the traditional "Oh God, Our Help In Ages Past."

The mixed octette was organized F 3 T under the direction of Miss Orell Winchester and was composed of four boys and four girls. The group made its first appearance at the Annual Football Banquet, singing "Winter Wonderland." The Octette also sang in the music as- sembly and the music department's radio broadcast. In March, the group was asked to sing for the Board of Trade and the annual Band Bounce. Throughout the year Miss Winchester directed the group in a variety of numbers in- cluding folk songs, rounds, semi- classics, and classics. 3rd R.uwAU. Cole, M. Dyer, D.

In April, they assisted the band in the an- nual Band Bounce. The Schu- bert Festival in Grand Rapids was the biggest choir event of the year. The choir also took part in the State Vocal Festival at Ann Arbor, and at the end of the year, exchange assemblies were presented at Muskegon, Muskegon Heights, and Grand Haven. BOYS' EN SEMBLE I-i ll ll Y D. Vento, J. Anderegg, J. Hubbell, H. Potter, ll. Hoxic, E. Calla, J. Poole. One day Miss Winchester was confronted by seven enthusiastic boys who wanted to sing. The re- sult was the organization of the Boys' Vocal Ensemble. Through- out the year the boys sang novel tunes, the favorite being "Dry Bones." The group sang for as- semblies, radio programs, and var4 ious other events. The Girls' Glee Club was re- organized this year under the direction of Miss Orell Win- chester. The club 1 was di- vided into two sections, the third hour group, composed of girls who had a third hour study hall, and the fifth hour group. The combined groups gave their first performa.nce at the choir concert, "Keep on Singing." The girls sang a group of semi-classical num- bers including "The Desert Song," "Tea for Two," "In My Garden," "If I Could Tell You," "Tiritomba," and "Ave Maria." In February the Glee I Y ls!

GLEE CLUB This year we were fortunate in having two faculty members in the music department. Mr. Robert Wirschem directed the band, choir, and all instrumental groups. Miss Orell Winchester, who came here this year from Allegan, taught elementary vocal music. She also directed the Girls' Glee, Club and vocal ensembles. Mr. Wirschem and Miss Winchester are making plans for an enlarged music de- partment next year. Club recorded several num- bers which were used on one of the weekly broadcasts. In the spring the girls sang for the annual Band Bounce and several other occasions. The group also spent a great deal of time in music apprecia- tion. The girls made a study of Bizet's "Carmen" and sev- eral other well-known operas. The Glee Club which lost nine Seniors this year, spent the last few weeks making plans for a varied program for next year. Miss Winchester Mr. Wirschem 3 ll ll ll Y x Y 9 Km!

Let's get in our new space ship and see if we can locate some of our old cronies who went their separate ways the day we got our diplomas. The members of our class were certainly anxious to see the world. Our first stop is that buzzing Metropolis, New York City, where we find Jim Hub- bell conducting the premiere of Agnes McPhail's new symphony for the tuba in Carnegie Hall. We see in the New York Times, that the Opera season is opening tonight with Delores Huntoon in one of the leading roles. Of course, you know that Delores Cole is the Society Editor for the Times. A visit to Madison Square Gardens and we see Margaret Figge flying around in a fury on the opening night of her new rodeo show. Margaret tells us she has just received a letter from Lois Miller who is in Washington trying to get a patent on her new soft drink. It takes but a few minutes to get to Boston to renew our acquaintance with Fred Thompson, a member of the chorus line at Cocoanut Grove. At a corner table we dis- covered Jack Anderegg, prize .fight promoter and Bill Mills, Olympic skier, discussing which sport is the safest. George Fitzgerald, who has just won a jitterbug marathon, is seated at another table with Gordon Gunn who is covering the floor show for the Police Gazette of which he is editor. Leaving the east and heading back West, we drop in on Joel Wiener, head psychia- trist at the Milton Clinic. Evelyn Westenfelder, Cornelia Kramer, and Shirley Snow are nursing some of the patients while Bill Putnam is busy in the lab trying to perfect his experiment of crossing an owl with a goat to get a hootin-nanny. Einar Baker, head of the mental hospital, is there observng the results. Arriving in Canada We have to follow the tracks in the snow to find Doug Leaf- strand, still attempting to make his millions as a fur trapper. Oh, there he is in his raccoon coat hardly recognizable, talking to Bev Munson who is in Canada for the Olympics. Back in the Muskegon area we find that some of the gang are still around, Rich Schalk now owns his own celery farm. Cliff Dobben and Frank Cherney have a used car lot, Slofppy Motor Sales. Bill Duell is the new manager of the Michigan Theater. North Muskegon has certainly grown, but the old Alma Mater hasn't changed too much except for the new school and city hall building. Visiting the grain factory we find Doyle Hame- link teaching Physics and Anne Fohlbrook is writing Mr. Dunsmore's absence excuses. Passing the old Norse Star Clinic we see Dale Pulsipher hard at work on the Mimeo- graph machine. It seems he is having some trouble getting his beard untangled. Dropping in at Holmes' Drug store, the center of the thriving business section of North Muskegon, we meet Bonnie Schuitema, checking on the effect of her rhymes for Burma Shave. Over here is Lois Brooks demonstrating the new Ato Blooper bubble gum to Maxine Schaefer who is purchasing some gum to quiet her twin sons, Ken and Ben. Seated at the soda bar as usual, sipping sodas, are Dick Sorensen, on leave from the Coast Guard, and Colon Buitendorp, who has dropped in on his way to be auctioneer at an auction in Ravenna. Behind the counter is Mary Dyer, going on with her usual line of chatter with Jayne and Earl Andree, who have dropped in to say that they have just had a visit from Doris Mullally and Clarence Kramer, who had just completed giv- ing a lecture in Ferrysburg on how to be a success in window cleaning. Across the street we see Phil Buwalda, a hardware and grocery magnate, and Dale Bos has stopped by to show Phil that he now has his own little red truck. It seems like just everyone is getting up in the world today. Bud Hansen is busy selling Phil on the idea of purchasing his new dehydrated grain and mash. Phil never did care much for new ideas. Muskegon has a girls' football team now with Elsie Davis as the tall center, Marva Ericksen and Maxine Hadley in the backfield, and Joanne Webster playing end. Jim . 1.11 LL, fe fa-P f CLASS Pll0PllllllY Scott came back to coach the team after being defeated as coach for Notre Dame by Michigan in the Rose Bowl game. By the way, Ken Baars is quite a hero now. His boys in maize and blue really played ball for him in the Rose Bowl game. Everywhere we stop we see the same Brink armored car and-well, how about that. Arthur Schattie is driving it. He certainly gets around in that'thing. Swish-h-h-h!! That must have been an M.D. on a rush call. Oh, it was Chuck Oakes on his way to save another life. What a tiring life a tree surgeon leads. While we see some of the other people, Arthur Olson can overhaul our ship at one of his many packaged fuel stations. The government will soon have him before a Con- gressional investigating committee for having a monopoly if he expands much more. We see Ramon Williams is back in Muskegon for a few days before joining his ball club in Florida for spring training. Frank Hassinger has retired to his home in Muske- gon after making his first million selling his formula for curly hair. He spends a great deal of his time corresponding with Ruth Johnson who has her own beauty shop in Hollywood. A quick breath and we are landing in Chicago to gather some more bits of news from Yvonne Carter, whom you know is president of the Platform Shoe Company. Perky tells us she has just been talking to Jayne Petersen, who is on tour with Arthur Murray. Jayne has just returned from Europe, where she met several of the old gang. Elaine Philips was in France teaching at the Sorbonne University. You'd never guess who was in Greece searching among the traces of ancient civilization for art works! June Hagstrom and Barb Joslyn. June was having a great deal of success, but Barb was having a hard time concentrating on her work while Harry Potter was giving one of his many concerts, a baritone singer you know, in London. She was anxious to return to England for more reasons than one. Janet Snuffer and Martin Postema were opening up an English lodge for fox hunting. Of course, some of the gang have to be there for the opening of the season. Jack Mitchelson, our class playboy, has been taking life easy lately. At one time he was a model for "Restful Mattress," but is now retired. Kendric Douglas was also there. He was in Europe to attend a convention of veterinarians. Delores Englund and Janet Snuffer, missionaries on their way to Africa, also had been at the lodge for a few days. We will leave Jayne's chatter now, and hurry on to visit the Miesch Hip Boot and Shovel Manufacturing plant. Touring through the fac- tory, we notice some old familiar typists still hard at work pounding the keys. There's Bev Goldsmith, Lois Willbrandt and Beverly Woodhouse. Doc has just received again his driver's license and is anxious to do a little driving so let's take a short spin and see the sights of Chicago. Oh, there's the Gundy Trucking Co. and the Bos Dental Clinic. Doc tells us that Bob Timmer has just been chosen as head of the mailing department of Sears and Roebuck. Look out Doc, you almost hit that armored car. Oh no, yes, it's Art Schattie again. Who is that with him? Geraldine Klym, of all people, and Beverly Hutchins. They're on their way to visit the new Sparks Dry Cleaning Plant. Jim is really going up in the business world. From pressing clothes to pressing lettuce. A quick stop at the Westenfelder garage, and we are on our way to the Miesch residence before returning to our routine life. Arriving at Doc's spacious home, we find Eloise Wagner, Joy Sherwood, and Norma Fox, who have stopped in for tea, discussing life's little problems. Norma is asking for advice on how to keep the wolves away from her door. Eloise is busy studying Harold Zeldenrusts' latest book on farm implements. She is planning on enlarging her new ranch home.
