Phillip Aldrich Greater Love Hath No Man Let us pause at this page to pay silent tribute to these young men who have made the supreme sacrifice that we might continue to enjoy the American Way of Life. Roll Call Among the first to answer America's call to arms was our principal, Major MacNaughton, affec- tionately known as "Mac," He is now stationed at Fort Custer, Michigan, with the Second Army. One of Ottawals well-known instructors, Lt. Col. Sidney Z. Eleveld, is commanding officer of the 74i0th Military Police Battalion. These men are leading the young men in the armed forces toward greater service to their nation. Their answer to our nation's call is an inspiration to the students of Ottawa who will soon enter the armed forces. Four hundred and thirteen young men, alumni of Ottawa Hills, have answered their country's call. They are stationed all over the world, from Australia to Iceland, Africa to Alaska. The young men in our 1943 senior class are also answering the roll call of loyal citizens to the service of their nation. Four of our january gradu- ates are now in training: Fred Vander Woude, Army Intelligence Schoolg Fred Geers, U. S. Armyg Donald Salm, Army Armored Divisiong and David Worin, Army Air Corps. A number of our june graduates have already left for various training centers. Among them are Lawrence Potter, U. S. Army, Robert Morten, U. S. Armyg William Schneider, U. S. Armyg William Laughlin, Army Air Corps, and Keith Scharmack, Army Meteorology Service. We are proud of Ottawa's gallant fighting men. Major Henry D. MacNaughtun Dedication In the second year of Ottawa Hills' existence, Miss Lenore Bader started her teaching career here with an eighth grade class. Since that time she has had a session room in each succeeding grade and has taught every form of mathema- tics from the eighth grade general arithmetic to the senior trigonometry. She has always been exceedingly generous in giving her time and efforts to aid her pupils in their class work and in the extra-curricular activities of the school. Last fall Miss Bader became one of the senior advisers. She has had the responsibility of the Senior Girls' League, and the financial business of the Senior Play and Mimes. Miss Bader's patience, her high, inspiring ideals for the students, and her individual, ever present humor have won her a permanent place of affection in the hearts of her seniors. No student with whom she has worked will go forth from the school without being a better individual. Ottawa Hills has a deep and sincere admiration for Miss Lenore Bader, to whom the pupils fondly dedicate the Legend of 1945. 5 f4 "' ff,.f"1,1f li ff'-1. 3- .. .1 .-- S...

It is the skyscraper, the humble cabin in the foothills, the prairies of waving grain, the purple mountains, the people we love. It's peanuts and crackerjacks at the zoo, a game of marbles or jump-the-rope, a glass of milk and Grandma's cookies after school, pop and hot dogs at the baseball game. It's bridge or tea, golf or the concert. The American Way of Life is the story of the thirteen colonies, the "Spirit of '76," the Minute Men, and Valley Forge. It is "Yankee Doodle," Corregidor, and Guadalcanal. It is the farmer raising his crops, the weather beaten fisherman drawing in his nets, the muscular factory hand running ponderous machines, the busy executive getting out war orders, the house wife doing her spring cleaning, the doctor building strong bodies, the friendly minister, the teacher, and the high school student going about their activities. They are the American Way of Life. But under all this, there is something greater. It is the faith that is America: the faith in a government of the people, the right to speak freely, to observe different religions, to dream, to have the opportunity to make those dreams come true, and the responsi- bility to maintain freedom no matter what the cost. This is America. This is Ottawa Hills, or any other school in this great land. Only here could a high school partake of this way of life. In this book of memories will be found Ottawa Hills, a portion of the American Way of Life. ,f Mifiin-0' Q e . 1 fi' 'VXA .. r , .f xxx 57- 2 Z 'T ,"h- -aff M A4 1 T i I li".-L L ffl 2 N Qlieerf' -fi ,-:ii X f! mfg yy if . - Watchwords Faculty oiwkxxz V: lj 2 I 7 Z-2 rum-1 wg ff Q Lx' 6 E , -2' vw' Q T "They Serve Best - " . page 9 1 ' Seniors -L xx , , "-From This Time Forward" . . page 19 +1 1 ' S, "--Let Us Council Together" . . page 37 N . - ,.f' N 0 ,----if LLC '-41, Life fl" f--T , - 1-Q" "- We the People" . . page 47 5' 7' I -.4 A --f -- -L?

The American educational system is a boon to the nation and its people. From the early days of the little red school house and the three R's it has expanded and grown, until today we have compulsory education for all the children of the nation. Yet this organi- zation would be of little value without the teachers it embodies. They are men and women with a great vision who are capable of firing the imagination of youth with the yet unexplored possi- bilities of science. They spend their time and effort in building an intelli- gent generation for the future with a knowledge of the past, in stimulating the ambitions of the students, and in instilling in the minds and hearts of their pupils a love for democratic ideals -good sportsmanship, equality, and freedom. To the teachers of Ottawa Hills, the students owe appreciation for all that has been done for them. The time, effort, and knowledge that the instruc- tors have given so freely to aid them - not only in academic work, but in other activities as well- is but a symbol of the teachers' devotion to the ideals of America and to mankind, whom they are serving by building the citizens of tomorrow. They serve best-who serve mankind. ,K as No f'Lazy-bones" Here These teachers busy with school work'every minute of the day still tind time to sponsor clubs and take an active part in professional organiza- tions, such as the Grand Rapids Teachers' Club, of which Mr. Giddings is president. When there are drives to sell more defense stamps, donate books for the USO, or contribute to the Red Cross, it is the teachers who help. And one rarely sees Miss Caldwell without her Red Cross knitting. Nevertheless, the teachers are seen at plays and games, cheering and as "full 0' pep" as any student. I. Thrills. Miss Baloyan is keeping up the Ottawa school spirit. 2. Anticipation. After years of coaching, Lud still watches each game with interest. 3. Leisure hours. Miss Krzyminski takes time out to help with the hobby show. 4. Mid-year exams. They're over for the stu- dents. but not for Mr. Vander Ploeg. 5. Bidding farewell to a senior. Lou I. Sigler, A. B., M. Ed. Mrs. Lou I. Sigler, Ottawa's assistant principal, is also principal of Alexander and Ottawa elementary schools. She is widely known throughout Grand Rapids and the State of Michigan, being past president of the Grand Rapids Teachers' Club, and the State Federation of Teachers' Clubs, a member of the Michigan Education Association, and a life member of the state Parents and Teachers' Association. Being very much interested in art she belongs to the Art Association and is program chairman of the Friends of American Art. This year Ottawa has developed a new vocational guidance program of which Mrs. Sigler is the chairman. In spite of all these things, she still continues to find time to help students with their work. 11 Michael W. Shillinger, B. S., M. A. Acting-principal, Michael W. Shillinger has really become a part of Ottawa. Wlien new students come here from other schools, he greets them and helps them to feel at home by making out their programs and showing them the "ins and outs" of the school. A student leaving Ottawa takes with him the memory of a kindly hand- shake and smile. He came to Ottawa Hills from South High to fill in for Mr. Mac- Naughton, who is in active service. Since being at Ottawa, he has won the affection of all the students. A member of the Grand Rapids Chap- ter ofthe International Round Table Club, Michigan Education Association, National Education Association, and the School Men's Clubg Mr. Shillinger has attended Stout Institute, Columbia University, the University of Michigan, and Western State Teachers College. Helping him in the office is Mrs. Helen G. Haight, the efficient clerk, who makes the "wheels go 'roundf' ' mu x 1 Mary Jo Hull B.Ph.

The youngsters really cheered when Mrs. Sigler climbed into the back seat and went for a spin. Everyone was excited as the jeep rode up onto the sidewalk and got stuck in a pile of snow, but a cheer rose when it plowed through. These little tykes really earned the delight and joy received when "real" soldiers brought the jeep to Ottawa. The elementary department also participated in the Red Cross and scrap drives. The younger pupils have been concentrating on the geography of the war, nutrition, and physical fitness of the American Life. Maps were studied and collections made from weekly newspapers and magazines. To end their year, the elementary rooms studied foreign lands and how they affect our country through imports, exports, and the production of vital war materials. A visit from a real army jeep was the fitting climax to the "jeep" war stamp campaign of the elementary school in which the pupils bought more than 31,000 worth of stamps in six weeks. The student committee which planned the campaign was composed of Dick Cook, David Gray, Ross Springer, and jerry Steketee. These boys were given a ride in the jeep at the end of the ceremony.

A Government of the People This year even the debating class stressed the importance of our all-out war ettort with the question: "Resolved that a federal world government should be established", even though the tirst altirmative team did miss the last bus to the State Debate Tournament and had to take a taxi. Mr. Fuehrer's government classes sat in on at trial in court. Some pupils became so interested that they followed the ease through to the end.

Latin, Guidance French, English English English English Variety Adds Enjoyment "Give me liberty or give me death I" Thirty-seven times this rang out as Miss Smith's pupils recited Patrick Henry. They thought it fun to learn things actually said by the founders of the United States. Dramatics, another branch of English, is full of excitement, especially when pupils give impersona- tions of their classmates. Fifteen Legend editors found themselves running around in a dither of pictures and write-ups. They owe a debt of grati- tude to Miss Tenhaaf and Miss Baloyan whose English classes had discussions on The American Way of Life. Oh, for a Magic Carpet! "Parlez-vous francais?"- The French students have an enjoyable time giving original plays in French. And for more fun than a picnic4that's rightga puppet show in French. Don't be surprised if you've never heard a Latin student talking Huently in this language. Although they don't talk, they do sing "Adeste Fidelis" and "Silens Noir" in Latin. Let's take a trip to Mexico, or why not South America? The Spanish students think this would be exciting for they have talked to a real Span- iard, tasted Mexican food, and played Spanish games. A typical American English class. Or should we say an Ottawa English class? Anyway these students appear to he enjoying the study of Shakespeare's "As You Like lt." Evidently Miss Lewis has them well trained. "Don't drop that gram weight," says T. Grant to hir. Toland is explaining the main parts of a tri- S. McVoy, who is weighting sodium chloride. In chemis- try everything must he weighed accurately-or else? Math Aids Cupid Two and two makes four is simple compared to the Pythagorean Theorem, which Miss Bader explains to her geometry classes every year. Gen- eral math, bookkeeping, algebra, geometry, trigo- nometry! It sounds like a lot of math, doesnt it? Well, it certainly has furnished excuses for many a boy who wanted to call that good-looking new girl on the 'phone. Sooner or later her tele- phone would ring and he'd be there wondering what the assignment for tomorrow was to be. Let's call Cupidflvlath. How about it? angular prism to Don Veldman. Solid geometry is a practical subject, especially in these wartime days. Science is Exacting "Oxygen must have an atomic weight of sixteen, because if it didn't, the atomic theory would go all to smash," thought one poor student who hadn't studied his chemistry enough. How many girls do their studying when they work on ex- periments with good-looking boys? This can also apply to physics when taken by members of the feminine sex. "Oh, so that's where my appendix is!" is one of the remarks made in physiology. "Where's Casablanca?" Geography classes paid particular attention to the centers of war interest Lenore Bader john H.

The clothing classes also made garments for the Red Cross. Zora Barnaby Harry P. Buboltz Metra I. Buboltz Davis B.S. B.S. B.S. A.B.

Clothing Mechanical Stenography, Drawing Typing The Girls Take Over Clink, clink, clunk, goes the printing press. Everything from tickets to Board of Education papers are turned out in the print shop. Besides developing self-confidence within themselves and a system of doing things, the boys that take woodworking find it a thrill to make desks and other pieces of furniture. Even though the boys may not like to admit it, the girls seem to be adept at me- chanical drawing, an important subject in the field of architecture and engineering. Homemakers No hard feelings as the girls in the Personal Regimen classes give and take criticisms, and do it gladly. And debating over which dress to select is never a problem to a girl who has had clothing, for she learns what to look for in each garment. "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Could this be the reason for so many girls taking foods? Many girls we are told can boil only water without burning it before taking this subject. Clicking Ty pevvriters "Let's take a letter for transcription." These words are heard everyday in the advanced stenography class. Besides learning how to run a dictaphone and ediphone the class practices regular office procedures. Anyone who chanced to be wandering around on the third floor heard the clicking of keys and the sound of music. Imagine typing to music! Anyway, that's the way the beginners pick up rhythm and speed. 16 WAACS and Commandos "Class right face, unit one, exercise four-to count-one, two, three, four." Commands similar to this were heard nearly every day coming from the gymnasium. The girls were doing WAAC exercises. Oh, yes, and the girls can do push-ups, too. One girl has a record of doing thirty-five. As for the boys-they were seen jumping from the balcony to the main floor of the gymnasium, jumping over all kinds of ob- stacles and climbing ropes. Sometimes they even crawled along the framework on the ceiling. What do you call it? It's Com- mando Training, and how they love it! "They Must Have Music" Here comes the band! What would a football game be without it to lead the singing of pep songs? And what a thrill it gives the band boys and girls to wear their uniforms, and to be an impor- tant part of their school's activities. The orchestra, too, has its parts in school life by playing at assemblies, plays, and the mid- year graduation. Remember how all the whispering and rustling was hushed when the choir began to sing at the Spring Concert? Beautiful old Negro spirituals, ballads, patriotic songs,- and the audience listened quietly. Artists in the Making The beautiful murals depicting scenes of war that were seen in Miss Crego's room this year were made by talented students in her advanced classes. Students in the younger classes enjoy drawing sketches of each other. Of course, no one was annoyed if his por- trait wasn't too flattering, for it was all in fun and good practice. They also model clay, made wood carvings and cartoons. Well, who can tell? There may be a future Van Dyke or da Vinci in one of the classes. Delores Ver Merris, Aurelia Matteson, Quentin Van Dore, and Mr. Mitchell compose the second hour stagger class. The camera couldn't find the fourth member of the class, Tom Bergers. 17 Ida A.

From This Time Forward" The Seniors of 1943, having attained their goal, now go forth to meet a challenge for which they are well for- tified by their course of study at Ottawa Hills. By their actions they have shown their love for the Ameri- can Way of Life: in competition and yet in cooperation, in duty and yet in freedom. They love America, a land of freedom under the guidance of God, a land of little people and great ideals, a land of spacious fields and green forests, a land of industry and opportunity for all. They love the principles upon which America stands -equality, independence, justice. They love America, and stand ready to pro- tect their nation's destiny through ser- vice in the armed forces, in hospitals, in industry, and wherever they may be called. Now they are going into a world dark with war, filled with new prob- lems, uncertainty, and changing ideas. But the Seniors of 1943 will meet the challenge and will succeed. With the inspirational courage and knowledge gained at Ottawa, they will carry on. They will defend with greater strength the freedom and independence of the United States of America- From this time forward.

On that day Ottawa broke one of its traditions so that these students might graduate in the middle of the year. The exercises followed the same order as the eve- ning exercises in June except that it was in the afternoon with the student body attending. The Army snatched away Fred Geers, Don Salm, Fred Vander Woude, and Dave Worm. Alice Behrens, Anthony Jensen, Virginia Lewis, Pat Stricklen, Virginia Warren, and Lois Whitmore are working. Jackie Krell is back at school again, Ruth Postema is studying to be a nurse at Michigan State, and Dorothy Tausend is attending college there also. Mr. Giddings presided over the commencement and introduced to the student body Mr. Harry J. Kelly as the speaker of the afternoon. Mr. Mitchell and the Senior orchestra furnished the music. Service Flag Dedication February 22 had a double meaning for the stu- dents at Ottawa this year. Dedication of a service Hag to the men in service held the lime-light at an assembly on Washington's Birthday. As Bill Daniel- son on behalf of the seniors, who dedicated the fiag, spoke, the curtains opened displaying a Hag with a red border and white center in which was a blue star having the number 374 on it. This number which represented the number of men then in service is now 413 as the book goes to press. Lieutenant W. M. Fleetwood from the Army Weather School here in Grand Rapids, spoke on "What the people here at home are doing." He told us that the two gold stars in the corners of the flag represented Richard Wells and Phillip Aldrich, who had been killed in action. In memory of their death taps was played. A short address given by Mr. Shillinger closed the assembly. Dorothy Ackerman Cheinpltyhio Qemor Girls' League Spectator, Debating Lois Andre Senior Girls' League 5.17. Q.

We, in this year's senior class, be- lieve that we have done our utmost in carrying out the principles of this tradition. Your task will be a difficult one, but if at the end of next year, you may, when it comes your turn to pass on the peace pipe, know that you have attained high achievement in all phases of school life, you may feel that your class has the character, loyalty, and scholarship that is needed to keep this tradition intact. And so to you juniors we entrust the Peace Pipe of Ottawa Hills High School, full well knowing that it and its high ideals are in the hands which will only serve to better it for the many classes to come. Peace Pipe Acceptance In behalf of the junior class I humbly accept this symbol of good-will which has been handed down through the years until now it has almost a legendary significance. As the seniors of to- morrow, we all solemnly commit ourselves to car- ry forward the high have carried forward ideals which you so nobly here at Ottawa. We all know that ditions of today, you, forth into the world stances than have been faced by any of your predecessorsg but this whole school has complete because of the world con- the graduating seniors, go under more trying circum- faith in you. We are certain that the way in which you face and conquer the seemingly insur- mountable obstacles in your path will prove to all posterity that the class of 19-43 was undaunted by any of them. All of us realize that in accepting your chal- lenge we take upon our shoulders a tremendous task, a task which will require the utmost of ef- fort and endeavor on our part. But nevertheless, we pledge our combined abilities to the accom- plishment of this high purpose which you have put before us. N In this scene trom the senior play are Garrett Grant, Marilyn Schmidt, Mary Schopps, Robert Lindstrom, Robert Clark, Alex, Martin, Carl Duvall, and Carol jean Reihmer trying to straighten a write-up in the "Penguin". 'cEver Since Eve" The Class of '43 selected the human comedy, "Ever Since Eve", written by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements, as its senior play because the mem- bers felt it would make people laugh and take their minds off the everyday problems that confront them. The cast, under the direction of Miss Mary Baloyan, worked hard to put on this portrayal of average high school boys and girls, what they think, how they act, and what they do when run- ning a school paper. included Mary Ann Lynch, Pat Semeyn, Peggy Petersen, Carol jean Reihmer, Biddy Allen, Robert Clark, Garrett Grant, Robert Lindstrom, Martin Slager, David Applebee, Arthur Lindquist, john Vander Veen, and Pierce Yardley. Eleven crews with seventy-six members worked hard this year. It didn't take much scouting around to see them, It all ended with good results. Handsome athletes desperately try to thrill the Southern miss, johnny Clover and Spud Erwin, two good pals, are editor and assistant man- ager of the "Penguin", their school paper. Their life is interrupted by Susan Blake, who is the cause of many headaches because she wants to be the assistant editor. An attractive new Southern girl also adds to the troubles of the two blooming journalists, but they make an agreement concerning her, and do their best not to keep it. As if there were not already enough confusion, a measles epidemic breaks out in the school, but the story ends happily, with everyone going to the Christmas Prom. The cast was headed by Mary Schopps, Alex Martin, Carl Duvall, Walter johnson, Marilyn Schmidt, and L. X ..., .

Each " grade has finished a certain portion of the requirements of the present edu- cational system. But it is not merely a matter of completing certain subjects or require- ments. Classes provide a place where students may gather to exchange ideas, to develop their power of self- expression, to learn to receive criti- cism, to criticize each other in a constructive manner, and to learn, ...N 2 above all else, to work with others. V l i f These classes, under the supervision l X .,-.Y.-.57 and guidance of our teachers, instill if ""'f1' W in the student a conception of coop- eration and its importance. They W learn to work with others, to tolerate Ni T -TT' the opinions of others just as they ,ix x Tiff: shall need to do when they leave 5" 'K school. In these classes where the stu- lflfl me R- . Ay ,X X gl gr f 1' dents are in contact with one another, p f "gh ' - where they are interested in the same S XX X V things, there also is found a quality " X t of com etition -a ood natured com- X tj .

We believe in our nation, and are glad to make sac- rifices to preserve her freedom. We express our loyalty in many concrete ways: we purchase War Bonds and Stampsg we conserve on essential war materials, we practice health and safe- ty rules that will make our country a stronger nation. We aid our national Red Cross by contributions to its drive for financial support. We also aid by knitting, and by folding surgical dress- ings. We collect scrap metal, paper, and old keys. In response to the great gifts of this nation we are glad to aid her in any way we can and make any sacrifice necessary. Yet, we may think as we please, speak or write what we wish. We are educated in free schools. We have the right to choose our own work, and to seek employment where our experiences and abilities fit the job. We have freedom- a joyous free- dom, we can sing and dance, shout and laugh as we please because we are free. Ottawa Hills is our school, but it is only a small part of a great nationw the nation we love and treasure. Whenever America needs protection to remain free she will find her staunchest supporters in - we the people.

Dear American lAn open letter to all who have faith in usb Whether you're a lighting marine giving your life in the Solomons, a business man giving up your time, energies, part of your salary, and perhaps part of your office staff, a defense worker giving from forty-eight to sixty hours a week on the assembly line, or a farmer spending all your waking hours till- ing the soil to raise the food our country and our allies need, you are an American doing your best for Uncle Sam. In our small way we too are doing our best. Many things are the same as when you were in high schoolf we study many of the same subjects, some new ones as pre- flight aeronautics, military drill, and physical fitness classesg we have the same paper, pen, and books, although many of our books are more beautiful than yoursg we pay fees for science, music, etc. Buying our regular quotas of war bonds and stamps is prob- ably the greatest difference. Many of the session rooms have made charts and thermometers to record their sale of war stamps. Mr. Fuehrer's room has a large wooden thermometer with adjustable mercury. Graphs of guns and other equipment have been made and sections are filled in according to the amount of stamps sold. Joan Toland, Stephen Martin, and Cornell Lugthart keep a record of the amount of war stamps that are bought in Room 220. Each helmet and each section of the gun and parachute has its own value. 48 Dr. and Mrs. Martin speak with Mr. Toland at Open House. We see Mr. Toland's exhibit in the background. In only two weeks we bought enough war stamps for the purchase of two jeeps. This isn't all we have been doing, though. Many of our boys have worked in rain or shine on scrap metal drives, collecting scrap iron, aluminum, and tin. Many of our girls have been i folding bandages for the American Red Cross. Wfe have answered the call for the American War Fund, the Tuberculosis Fund at Christmas time, and the Infantile Paralysis Fund for the President's Birthday by contributing generously. At the beginning and end of each semester, our two school stores are crowded with students buy- ing and selling books, and buying paper, note- books, maps, and pencils to be ready for work. Each year in April we hold an open house at which the parents can come to school in the eve- ning and look over the samples of the students' work which is posted for them. They then have an opportunity to talk to the teachers about johnny's problems, and so it goesi between them they get things all Hxed up, and Johnny is again in the good graces of the teachers. Although this is one time of the year when the students quake, the parents and teachers welcome the opportu- nity of being together for an evening. Intermittent bells and sirens are the signal for a tire drill, while bells alone and sirens alone nify the type of air raid drill.

Paint crews, carpenter crews, clean-up crews, electrical and stage crews are only some of 4 9 the crews that we have been working to put on these plays. An evacuation drill was called from the main office in the midst of our senior mixer this year. Only one game had been played. After the alert, some seniors returned for ice cream.

With shortages and ration points to reckon with, it has been no simple matter to keep up the standard of our menus. We've had some interesting assemblies this year. On November 18, the Hi'Y sponsored an assembly at which the guest speaker was Dr. Harry Riemer from the Mel Trotter Radio De- partment, who spoke on "The Sublimity of the Common Place." In applying this to religion and education he proved to us how valuable the common things are. To celebrate book week, Mimes gave an as- sembly on "Books to Read." Mrs. james K. Miller, jr., guest speaker, and former president of the Ladies Literary Club, reviewed the three main types of books: 1. adventure books for the young people, 2. man against mang and 3. psychological books. Mr. Louis johnson of the Wild Life of America Association from Aston, Wisconsin, speaking of "Snakes and Spiders," is one as- sembly none of us will forget. We heard him say, "If you are afraid of them, it is because you do not understand them, The sting of most snakes and spiders is no more poisonous than the sting of a bee." He concluded his assembly by having Beverly Geller, Mary Alice Hatch, and Marion Collins come to the stage to handle his pet reptiles. It is not uncommon for us to have as our guest speaker at an assembly the Rev. Charles Goudey from East Church. On November 11, Armistice Day, he spoke at an assembly at which he pointed out: Qfirstj we should not fail in our education, to learn the national heritage that is ours, fsecondj we shall make qu-U something of ourselves and we must store up in our minds quantities of information upon which we may build higher: and fthirdj we must adjust our progress to the needs of the present. We students have been pre- paring according to Civilian Defense with air raid drills, both inside and evacuation type. We have a good record in clearing the building for an evacuation drill, because ev- eryone cooperates by getting his wraps quickly, without loitering. At the sound of the signal for a fire drill, the students file out of their classes and down the halls and stairs, and out onto the sidewalk clear of the building. This we can do in two and three quarters minutes as timed by the office. Vile clear not only the three main floors but the band room in the tower as well. A pleasant pastime for the students who take their lunch in the cafeteria is the noon movies. A great variety of film is shown. Wlien we first enter the auditorium, the lights are turned low, and excited expectation sweeps the waiting audience. It may be an educational picture on chemistry, aviation, or industry, or, on the other hand, it may be Laurel and Hardy, Gene Autry, or Betty Boop. The noon is over almost before it begins, and again the students realize how much they would miss the noon movies. Ottawa played an exciting season of bas- ketball this year. Students were lined up at noon and after school for three days before each game. To keep up the morale of the losers as well as that of the winners, the basketball band is always on hand. It sup- plies the school songs, popular music, and "The National Anthem." Miss Krzyminski, our librarian, who has not been at Ottawa for several years, is well known for her pleasant personality even though she has so recently returned. Our library is no longer under the Ryerson Li- brary, but has been taken over by the Board of Education. New books and repairs on old ones are paid for with money taken in by lines on books kept out too long. Al- though the library is not used for a study hall during school hours as much as it used to be, still it is open before and after school and at noon for those who want to study there. The students are busy for a week paying fees in the of- fice. Mrs. Haight makes the change while someone else writes out the receipts. A schedule is made out before hand, so that each session room has its appointed time.

They keep the ferns watered, the furniture and floors bright and shiny, and the windows clean. And although we have the whole summer off for a vacation, they work on for fifty weeks of the year. They are truly a necessity in all times. The junior high school students have had several dances this year. They had an extra nice party at Christ- mas time. They were even able to supply a Santa Claus. We have been having a thorough occupational guidance and information program this year. In September, there was a meeting of our teachers and Mr. Carl Horn, Director of Occupational Information and Guidance of the State Department of Public Instruction. We had a panel dis- cussion during the first part of the year and were invited to the city-wide meeting held on the following Saturday. Occupational preference tests were given to most of the seniors to determine in what fields their work lies. Many were surprised at the results of these tests, as many of the professions were furthest from our minds. On April 13, we had "Careers Day." There was a panel discussion on A familiar sight: Carolyn Huizenga, and her checker, Shirley Williams, are comparing notes to see if there are any hall guard places vacant. Mrs. Buscher and Mabel Alflen are responsible for the excellent meals we buy at the cafeteria. Although they work under rationing and shortages, they never fail us for a menu.

We have beheld a marked change in almost every phase of life, and we have been callediupon to perform many duties other than our usual ones. XVe have seen the men and women of the armed services of this country depart for overseas combat, and we have seen our lighting forces greatly strengthened and enlarged for the sake of preserving our Ameri- can way of life. What is this so-called American way of life which demands so much of our time and energy for its protection? Perhaps it is our ideas of free- dom of speech, press, and religion, and the right to assemble, or maybe it is the ability to share in our own government. Where else are such priv- ileges granted -to the common people? Suppose you were living in Germany, Greece, Italy, China, or France. The people of these countries are all being opposed by tyrannical leaders who think that only they should holdjifsupreme power. There is no government for these people to share ing nor is there freedom of speech, press, or religion. The only thing left for them is worry, torture, starvation, and even death. We who live in America are much more for- tunate. We share in the responsibilities of run- ning a free government. We are entitled to all rights to which a free people are accustomed. Where else in the world would you find a nation sustained by the common people, a nation which guards the rights of her people, a nation that has produced her share of great men and women who have contributed much to the culture of the world, a nation abounding with rich natural re- sources, or a nation which provides equal op- portunities in education, occupations, and such as America does? Our American way of life has given us liberty, justice, and equality. It has maintained a high "-Long may it wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave." 'kit standard of living which no other nation is able to exceed, and it has given us our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Through the years our forefathers have main- tained a constant struggle to hold the forces of evil in check in order that this democracy of America might survive. The freedom they fought to secure and preserve then, is the very thing we are struggling to keep now. The existence of this American way of life cle- pends entirely upon the events which occur in the future in this world wide conflict. We Ameri- cans at home can do much in backing up our armed forces, and we may be asked to sacrifice many more things for the sake of them. How- ever, I believe that all of us will be willing to give up these things for the freedom for which the man in uniform is sacrificing his life. And after the war is all over, we can proudly say that this time America's share in the struggle really "made the world safe for democracy," and thus made possible the maintenance, advancement, and betterment of our American way of life. Telephones ringing, doorbells buzzing. and excited answers being given, as many a girl got ready to go to the junior-Senior Victory Prom. Because the theme was Victory, the girls wore, instead of formals, their best dresses and walked to the party. Greetings from a lively reception line including Bill Hersman and Mary Overholt, Mr. and Mrs. Shillinger, Miss Bader, and Mr. and Mrs. Giddings started the dance oft to a "grand" beginning.

Here a spirit, strong and vibrant, is displayed - a spirit that develops a love of just and fair play. The athletic program of Ottawa Hills gives each student a chance to specialize in his favorite sport. He may participate in tennis, track, bowl- ing, badminton, or golf. He also learns to cooperate with other students in games such as football, basketball, volley ball, and field ball. This year the senior boys have re- ceived "Commando" training three times a week to prepare them for mili- tary work. The Ottawa girls are also preparing themselves for service by practicing the WAAC exercises. Athletics builds strong bodies and strong characters. It strengthens man's code of honor. It teaches him to ac- cept results gracefully, and to be gen- erous. On the field of play the youth of today learns a strong vibrant joy- the joy of achievement. Face uplifted to the sun, here is young America playing, young Amer- ica on her way, strong as a mighty bird. The eagle of the crg- that nothing fears.

The whistle blows! The kick off! The stands let off a thunderous roar as the pigskin floats down the field before the triumphant foot of the kicker. This is what every true football fan has been waiting for. The season started on September 18 at House- man Field where Ottawa bowed down before a powerful Kalamazoo team. When the linal whistle blew, the score was 14 to 0. The first out of town game was played Sep- tember 25 at Holland in a dismal rain.

The outstanding players were Lindquist, Zaremba, Smith, and Lindstrom, Ottawa came back after its defeat of the week before to down Creston 12 to 0 with a passing attack, Greenhoe to Martin, during the third quarter. On the night of October 9 the Indians were drowned out by a powerful Tech team in a ter- rific rain at Houseman Field.

The great moments of the game were Zaremba's touchdown from the 15- yard line and Greenhoe's interception. A The Union game, which ended in a W scoreless tie, was played on a muddy field and every one was covered with it when the game finished. The season ended with a painful de- feat of 27 to 0 by Catholic Central. The team looked good in the first quarter but finally gave way under the superior power of the opposition. When the football season ended, Ottawa was tied with Creston and Tech for fourth, fifth, and sixth place. In the city Ottawa defeated South and Ctestonjtied Union, and lost to Cen- tral, Tech, and Catholic. Basketball Squad is Rebuilt "In judging the success of this year's team, one should remember that last year Ottawa, with a team that had been playing together for four years, tied for the championship. Only two play- ers on that entire squad who had seen any action returned, Greenhoe and Martin, and the former was lost in january due to the eight semester rule. It was necessary then to do a rebuilding job, and to that end a squad was picked for this season's title conquest, at least half of whose members were to return for another season. "In consideration of that fact, the team, we be- lieve, did very well indeed," says Coach Ludwick, "and the chances seem f bright for another good year in 1945-44" First Team Top row: Henry Ludwick fcoachj,jack Gladstone, Phillip Montgomery, Williztm Hers- man, Carol Hendrickson, Hugh Lilly, Robert jamo, Robert Millar fmgrj.

Baseball Nine Warms Up The Baseball Team this year looks fairly good, even though it did lose the first three games of the season. These games were with Central, Creston, and Catholic Central. The score of the Central game was 5 to 11 in Central's favorg Creston defeated Ottawa 7 to lg and Catho- lic won a hard fought game by only two points, the score was 2 to 0. just before the Legend went to press Ottawa won its first game. This game was with Christian and had been originally scheduled for April 20, but was cancelled because of rain. It was played on April 29 and the Ottawa nine defeated them in an exciting game at Garfield Park by the score of 5 to 0. This year there are many new fellows out, and they look like fine material for the team. Coach Cornie Koets is at Franklin Park with them every night when they are practicing, giving them pointers, helping to iron out the defects in the system, and assisting in the practice when- ever it is necessary.

Swinging into Action Mr. Mitchell's tennis team was hard hit by the graduating, last year, of all but two boys: Don Frans and Alex Martin. Both are excellent players and can be counted on to win many matches this season. The actual playing team is chosen by the boys' winnings among themselves. They have matches against each other and the ones with the highest standings are the team that plays against the opposing schools. As these matches are going on constantly, any member who can beat the high man becomes the number one man on the team. ln the first match, with Christian, Ottawa won both the singles and doubles.

In the south side league the ninth graders piled up a total of 159 points to their opponents' 65 points. They then played Harrison Park, the north side champ, and defeated them 45 to 17 to win the city championship. n The Second Football Team won two games out of the six they played.

There are many fellows out this year who look as if they could do much to place the team above last year's record. Two boys were elected to share the honor of captain, Bill MacAlpine and Gordon Face, from whom many points can be expected toward a high standing in the city league. press the following boys were the outstanding members of the team: the letter men of last season who are back, Face, who runs the 440 and the 880, MacAlpine in the 100, the 220, and the relaysg and Brummeler in the 100, the 220, and the relays. Brummeler is the only person who placed in the city meet last season. Other letter men are jim TRACK SCHEDULE Dale OIDIDIIIIEIII Field April 16 .......... South ...... ......

They are both fast runners in the Sprints and are building up many points toward their goal. The Start Tom Grant, Bill Brummeler, and Bill MacAlpine ready for the gun. Masters Endurance The noise in the locker room was suddenly quieted by the shrill blowing of a whistle. Miss Ellinger was clossing the door into the gym as the last few girls came up the stairs.

But it is more than that. It is a little piece of democracy, a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Such a club is a fulfillment of the right of free assembly, where men may peacably gather and enjoy the com- radeship of the association with their fellow men. It is American in its free trade of ideas and beliefsg in its ena thusiastic competition, in its coopera- tiong and above all, in the spirit of friendly equality among its members, and the fact that it places the individ' ual in an important position. This is a club at Ottawa Hills. It embodies all that is American, all the rights, privileges, traditions, and duties that belong to a citizen of the United States. No monarchy or land under dictatorial rule can reap such a reward. This is the harvest of the American Way of Life-a Life that began with the landing of the Pilgrims, and that has been fostered through the years to make our country a free nation. This freedom can bef found nowhere else. Tealess Teas Sh-h, don't tell anyone, but the senior girls do not have tea at their league teas at alll However, they have had some wonderful speakers.

Student Council Wlien you contributed to the various Red Cross drives, you were supporting just one of the many projects undertaken by the Student Council this year. During one Red Cross drive alone, more than one hundred dollars was collected. The sale of T.B. stamps, under the direction of john Vander Veen, was also successful. The Student Council was the driving force behind the presentation of the serv- ice flag, obtaining the names of Ottawa's graduates who are in the armed services and planning the presentation assembly and ceremony at which Vifilliam Danielson presented the flag to the school. Wlien Miss Creaser's newly organized Red Cross Committee needed money for material to make afghans for the soldiers, the Student Council sponsored a drive to raise the needed amount.

One of the more recent drives sponsored by the Student Council was the Books for Soldiers campaign. Each representative took charge of his own session room in this as well as in all other drives. Another one of the things that the Student Council had charge of was the hall guards. The Student Council of Ottawa Hills High School, under the sponsorship of Mr. Don P. Toland, has more than ful- filled its obligation to the school and Community. Once each year in the spring an assem- bly is held in which all of the candidates for the various Student Council offices are introduced to the faculty and student body. This year the assembly was held May 15. The candidates were Russ Duff and james Shuster for presidentg Mary Poelstra and Sue Ann Snyder for vice presidentg Theo Guerin and Pat Colby for secretary, and 'lack Frey and Sid Ammon for treasurer.

The Thrill of the Theater "Why is it more fun to work than to play?" That is what many students ask after they have worked on Mimes. Mimes is the dramatic organ- ization and workshop at Ottawa. The main event each year is the presentation of three one-act plays. Again this year they were directed and produced by Miss Mary Baloyan. The first of the three plays was a romantic story by Robert Knipe, "Heritage of Wimpole Street." This story is based on the family of Elizabeth Barrett Browning. R. Clark portrayed the stern parent, Edward Moulten-Barrett, who ruled his family with an iron hand. His daughters were played by B. Allen and M. Schopps. R. Preston, an eighth grader, did a splendid piece of acting as the grandson who changed Mr. Barrett into a kindly man.

They were very goodg though the girls did take as much time eating sandwiches, candy, and cake, as they did sewing. Pan-American was the theme for the annual inter-city Home Eco- nomics banquet which was held at Central High School in March. This theme was carried out in very brightly colored table decorations and strictly Mexican food. Miss Louise Schweitzer of the South High School faculty, who has been to Mexico four times, gave an interesting talk on the ways and cus- toms of the Mexicans.

Although small, the room is equipped with running water and electricity. The organization owns a developing tank, trays, and 21 printer, including the necessary chemicals needed for devel- oping. The student is allowed a limited amount of paper on which he may make all his prints. Each member of the club was given an opportunity to plan and conduct a meeting sometime during the year. The member had to select his own subject and prepare his own material. Developing and printing and night pho- tography were some of the subjects that were chosen. This year the Camera Club members also took some pictures for the Legend and submitted other pictures to the Spectator. 78 acobsen, F. Haines. S, Snyder, C.

Yes, sir, it is the this year by Mr. Bernard Patricia Colby, jim Shuster, Tom Wynant, and r Although the members worked hard for the school, they also found time for numerous social activities such as spreads, hay-rides, and a real "bang-up" dance. Remember the "Hoofers Hop"? fSlippery, wasn't it?j The condition of the floor should have changed the name to the 'Slippers' Slide." And don't forget the doughnut sales, espe- cially that one planned for the day of the evacuation drill. Then there was the hay-ride when it rained, and the horses forgot to come. So between wax, air raid drills, wet weather, and horses, the Hi-Y Club has had an eventful l year in a rather unexpected manner.

La Sociedad "Progreso" "Start your motor, senorital R-r-r-r," said Mr. Michael Santos, trying to teach the members of the Spanish Club how to roll their R's at a spread. His dark eyes flashed as he told thrilling stories of his experiences as a youthful bull fighter and traveler. He also gave the members an inter- esting picture of Spanish life and customs. At a Christmas program "La Pinata," an original Christmas play written by Audrey Coates, was pre- sented. The entire audience participated when, in the last scene, the Mexican game, La Pinata was played. Souvenirs and colored movies brought back by Miss Alice Caldwell from her trip to Mexico fur- nished entertainment at another meeting. With the aid of her films which showed much of the scenery of Mexico, she described her Allan Brown, Joyce Westrate, Audrey Coates, Alice Wlall, and Robert Lawrence are holding models which helped them learn vocabulary. trip "South of the Border." Included in her souvenirs were a perfume ring and some typical Indian pottery. 84 All of the Spanish students had the opportunity to see movies with Spanish dialogue. "Buenos Dias, CarmeIita" with Spanish dialogue was one of the most interesting ones. It was the story of a high school girl who was late for school because of laziness. In- cluded in the films shown were sev- eral educational movies on Chile, Colombia, and Argentina. Beware the Ides of March The Ides of March! Brutus killed Caesar, Dad paid his income tax, and new members were accepted into the Latin Club. For the latter, those who were fortunate enough to get an "A" average in Latin I, the fif- teenth of March held a special sig- nificance, for although these students were initiated with true Roman formality, it was fun, too, as shown by the picture. The S. P. Q. R. has led an active life. In October, it presented an assembly showing the advantages of art. Several of the programs given at the monthly meetings have been varied, including games, skits, music, and a St, Valentine's party. "On the whole, the S.P. R. has finished the year 'cum laude'," says Miss Smith, the sponsor. -N.. 'av' The Latin Club held their initiation on hfarch li after school in the English Room.

A. .- .. .. ., , S7 Military Training Unit on the March Forward Hatch! About Face! To the Rear! March! Halt! From these sounds one can gather the military unit organized for boys of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades is in training. Several of the student officers suffered laryngitis during outside practice for it was their duty to call out these commands. With the advent of snow and cold weather, the boys retired to the gymnasium. The first semester this worked out all right because if they had measured the boys and built the gym around them, there couldn't have been a better fit. However, the second semester more boys joined and the boys had to be divided into three platoons. At the bginning of the second semester the boys began to learn the manual of arms. After weeks of drilling they seemed to have a faint conception of what it was all about, according to Cadet Captain Tom Senseman. Almost any senior boy would have told you that the calisthenics they learned in gymnasium were hard in themselves, but the boys of the military training unit not only had to do calisthenics, but had to do them with rifles, which added complications galore. After much drilling the unit was inspected by a federal government inspector to determine if it was good enough to become a regular Reserve Officers Training Corps. Top row: R. Shuck. C.

The "Cords" had the great distinction of having two athletic captains on the membership list, Mart Slager of basketball fame, and Art Lindquist of football fame. The "Cords", have two things they are very proud of and treasure very much. One is the scrap book which they have kept up since 1928 in which all the old stars are shown from Ottawa, in their various sports and records of their games. The Other is the honor they have each year in giving away the cup to the best all-around athlete at Ottawa and having his name engraved on the cup Members A. Lindquist, D.

It informs the student of what the others are doing while at the same time telling him through the edi- torials where there is room for improvement. 90 Standing: Doris Gage fschool life editorj, Betty Matteson fsenior editorj, Robert Schopps lassistant senior editorj, Ann Quinlan lassistanf organization editorl, Donald Steihel iphotographic ediforj, Loren Stiles fatliletic editorj, Patricia Semeyn, Donna Westrzlte forganizafion ediforj.

"Here, lend me your lunch for this picture," said Doris Gage as she whisked the tray from under the nose of a startled cafeteria patron. "The pic- ture will be taken in the little dinning room" read a notice by Margaret Good which made everyone wonder until he discovered that she meant the "dining room." "Hope it doesnt look as it they're starving," said Margaret XY'ilson as she set the only article of food she could find, a box of crackers, on .1 table which was supposed to represent the eatables at a spread.
