Senior Clubs in Review
The Friendship Club started off the year
with the traditional Kick-off Dance. Many
interesting meetings were presented by ring
group concerning different phases of relig-
ion. Friendship and Hi-Y sponsored two
mixers during the year. A panel discussion
was held in March with members of both
clubs participating. Friendship and Hi-Y
also sponsored an inspiring Lenten Service
at the Rocky River M. E. Church. The new
plan of Hi-Y and Friendship sharing their
meetings has been very successful and co-
operation between the two clubs will stand
as a model for the years to come.
National Thespians got off to a good
start this year by presenting their first play,
"The Man Who Came To Dinner." This
was the biggest success Rocky River High
Shool had seen up to this time. ln Janu-
ary new members were initiated into the
club. Many interesting programs were pre-
sented during the course of the year. One
of the outstanding programs of the year was
a one-act play given at one of the evening
meetings by one of the public speaking
classes. An interesting radio play, "Miss
Liberty Goes to Town," was given before
the senior high as an assembly. The year
drew to an end with a enjoyable potluck
lyaku started out the year with a picnic
in the valley. This club had many inter-
esting speakers including the following.
Eugene Case, Mr. Surrarrerr, Miss Alice
Young, and Mr. Works. Also, at each meet-
ing three of the members gave a short talk.
One of the outstanding events of the year
was the tour of the Case Greenhouse on
Palm Sunday. The year came to a close
with the annual picnic.
Although Current Forum got off to a
slow start this year, the meetings have been
enjoyable and many diversified talks have
been offered. Some of the outstanding
speakers were Mayor Thomas, who told us
of our city, Mrs. Whitcomb, who discussed
our foreign policyg and Mr. Beimes who
explained the problem of juvenile delin-
One of the outstanding events at the be-
ginning of the school year was the presen-
tation of Major Allen Martini, veteran of
many air missions over Europe. Dr. King
from Lakewood and Norman Shaw from
the Cleveland Press were other outstand-
ing speakers during the year. In March
members of the Hi-Y and their guests en-
joyed the City-wide Hi-Y Dance at Hotel
Cleveland. The present year's activities
were brought to a close with the Sweetheart
Banquet, May the twenty-seventh.

River bl Fairview 0 Coach Randall Motts left for the Navy in
River I2 Bedford 0 me middle of the season and Mr. Crites
Rocky River had a successful season
this year in football. Last year's tirst string
team was mostly seniors, and, consequently
Coach Motts had very few veterans to start
with this fall. The only holdovers from last
season's squad were Gil Miltenberegr, All-
Southwestern Conference center, Dave
Davies, former guard, who did a bang-up
job at fullback, Ray Sarles, another former
guard, who was this year's defensive signal
caller from the halfback spot, and Duke
Bitler, back again at tailback. Bob Miller
and Dick Myers were our heavy tackles,
while Bob Friesner and Don Kelly filled end
positions. "Little Joe" Sandvick was left
guard, while right guard position was filled
by Ken Koster. ln the back field at left
half was Bud Hughes.
The boys, fired with enthusiasm by the
l942 record, got right into the swing of
things and took the first three games.
River suffered a serious loss in the fourth
game on our field with Berea. In a touch-
down drive, Duke Bitler fractured his collar
bone and was unable to play for the remain-
der of the season. River went into a slump,
losing the next three games. However,
on November 5, our old rival, Fairview,
visited us. The boys, determined to take
this game, licked Fairview by the score of
5l-0, then defeated Bedford a week later
on their own field. Coach Motts was well-
pleased with this football season, his last
at River for the duration.

stepped into coaching position for the re-
mainder of the time. Roland Seed, new-
comer to River this year, proved a very
capable captain, and was ably assisted by
veterans Bud Berkey, Johnny Lutz, Bob
Loesch, Hank Enger, and many others.
I-ive hundred-fifty spectators jammed the
gym to watch the final game against Ober-
lin February l8. River trailed by the score
of 20-I7 at the half. The boys re-entered
the game with fresh determination, how-
ever, and forged ahead, carrying a one
point lead through the fourth quarter.
When the buzzer for the final period
sounded, the score stood River 34, Oberlin
33, and wildly excited spectators jammed
the gym floor, and crowded around the
players. At the annual basketball ban-
quet, each boy was presented with a small
gold basketball, through the courtesy of the
parents, to signify that he was a conference
champ. The large Conference Champion-
ship trophy may now be seen in the trophy
case opposite the office.
As the Riverlet goes to press the base-
ball and track seasons are just opening.
