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.

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.
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

The American Way of Life comprises the things
that are closest to the hearts of its people. 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.
