R. H. S. Like most rhinie classes, we spent a good while getting used to making our way around. In April we put on a "Bad Luck" all school party, one of the year's best. As most rhinie classes don't get organized enough to sponsor a dance, this speaks well of us as rhinies. The next year we really got rolling. We had several boys in band and quite a few girls in J.H.S. and Girls Sports. Several of our hopeful athletes made the reserve teams, and we put on a very profitable post game dance after one of the basketball games. By our sophomore year we had settled down to the routine of high school life and were all working hard QU on our studies although geometry gave some of us a rough time. Many of our fellow members made names for themselves on the honor roll, on the football, basketball, and track teams, in the band and in D.S. In March we went Irish and put on the "Shamrock Shuffle," another success- ful all school party. Soft music, dim lights preceded by many hours of hard work land funjl This all added up to the Junior- Senior Prom, the highlight of our junior year. We had as our theme "Stardust" and worked long and hard pasting glittering stars on dark blue crepe paper. In order to raise money for the Prom, we sold hot dogs and cokes at several of the football games. But this wasn't the only activity in which we were engaged in our junior year. We printed the Junior Re- flector every week and had girls active in the Girl Re- serves, D. S., and Girl Sports, and Boys in Hi-Y, Band, and on the teams. Doing things differently from most junior classes, we got an early start in the fall and got our junior play, "Everything Happens to Us," out of the way so we had the whole second semester to work on our prom. Miss Bums was our director. Starting our senior year out right, we sold hot dogs and cokes at the first home game. We let the juniors reap some profits from the next two games, but cam back with a bang to end the football season by selling ho dogs, cokes, and putting on a post game dance all on th same night. This proved to be a very profitable venture. The next financial success which we undertook wax our play, "Out of the Frying Pan," on November 19 Under the capable direction of Miss Comar, how coulc it be anything but a success? About this time we also went to work in earnest ol our Reflector, determined to make this the best one ye! We worked free periods and evenings writing articles counting ballots, cutting and pasting pictures. You are now- viewing our finished product. Ordering announcements and cards, selection of ou: class motto, colors, and flower, being measured for cap: and gowns, talking about where we were going for skil day-all had to be done in our "spare" moments. Following a wonderful prom put on by the junior: with the theme of a Mardi Gras ball, we concluded oui busy year with Baccalaureate May 30 and Commence ment June 3. Our speaker, Mr. C. W. Otto, secretary treasurer of the Lansing Chamber of Commerce, dei livered a very good address entitled "Not Good If De- tached." But it really isn't quite correct to say that thi: "concluded" our year either because we still had oul junior-senior picnic at Camp Wakesma on June 4. We played games and had lots of good food. Of course, some brave souls went swimming even though the water was cold. Although our senior year was somewhat of a rush we enjoyed every minute of it and would like to go back and do it all over. In fact, we are, in a way, a little sorry to be graduating because we are sorry to be leaving all the fun we've had. .Z W, 23.144 4 ,arp 0110-603. 442, i 0-cn, A DEIL WRIGHT DAVID-HORST NANCY STRICKLER Valedictorizm ' Salutatorian D.A.R.

To the juniors, we leave our position as "big wheels," lo they may feel superior to their underclassmen. To the freshmen and sophomores, we leave the 'noney in the Stadium Fund. With the proper investments vou may have the stadium built for us alumni to enjoy. To the class of '52, we bequeath the statue of the Discus Thrower, which was left to us by the class of '44. We can't take it with us. To the faculty, we have nothing to leave, but ju t :he plain fact that we are leaving ought to console them. I, Nancy Welsh, leave my sophisticated and slinky nanner to Charlie Weidman. We-Jeanette Careggio, Ronnie Javello, Bill Stutes- nan and Joe Panczyk-hereby leave the Loyal Communist Party in the capable hands of Mr. Blank. I, Mary York, because I am under the hypnotic spell if Dave Recher, have no choice but to leave. I, Bill Abshire, will my proboscis to Pat Payne. I, Dick Maurer, hereby depart and take my baby vrother, Don, with me. I, Ralph Bell, will my Charles Atlas courses to Jerry Luzader. I, John Dudd, known to my friends as John Dudd, even better known to my mother, who named me John Edward Dudd, leave before this becomes too involved. We-Butchie Subora and Bob Teeters-will a bottle rf calamine lotion and a copy of "How to Recognize Your 'aison Plants" to Miss Gibson. I, Jack Patton, leave my fetching doorman's gear to Ped Babcock, who could fit into it if he took off his false houlders. Yours truly, John Walls, wills my superior photo- rraphic equipment to John Wittenberg, Jr., whom I hope vill become as accomplished as I am. We-Charles Stoddard and Hubert Wagner- leave ogether because we're too bashful to leave alone. I, Berwyn Houldsworth, will my outstanding ability o make long shots in basketball to Woody Byers. I, Deil Wright, leave my reserved place on the honor oll to some enterprising and studious lower classman rho will work as hard as I did. I, Jim DalPonte, knowing that distance lends en- hantment, leave to discover new horizons. We-Marvelle Jackson and Mary Timm-will our ombined charms to Jerry Lott. I, Charlotte Webberson, leave my vim, vigor, and itality to Bob Burns. I, Nancy Strickler, leave to join the "pilgrims," but ot the Puritans. I, John Geier, bequeath my slow-moving, devil-may- are attitude to Lois Unbenhaur. I, Delton Pangle, will my brawny muscles to Donna Wright. We-Barbara Brundige and Bob Owen-leave our typing accuracy to Jack Baker. I, Pat Kuplicki, will my magnetic personality to Jimmy Zimmerman. I, Dave Butler, leave my own inimitable hair style to Steve Shafer. We-sBarb Weiandt, Rosemarie Riggs, Normandy Huss, and Jean Plummer-leave our marvelous op- portunity to listen to other people's conversations to Evangeline Breyfogle. I, Bob Lake, regretfully bequeath my practically new Crosley to C. "Knute" Watson, who is desperate. I, Peggy Fox will my sweet feminine characteristics to "Big Jim" Bernhardt. I, Larry Smith, refuse to leave my big, brown eyes to anyone, because the only way they turn is Wright. We-Rosemarie Drumm and Marianna Penn-leave our artistic ability to Jerry Sangalli. I, Mary DiDato, will my bubbling personality to Bill Baum. I, Bill Mikel, would be glad to go, if you'd only stop pushing me! I, John Sarley, leave fond memories of my dynamic and animated speech making to Miss Magner. I, Ralph Miller, bequeath my good looks to Les Buchan's little brother, whose name is also Buchan. We-Jeannine Nidy, Donna Ransbottom, Evadean Bixler, and Virginia Westervelt-leave our unpaid secre- tarial positions in Mr. Dickie's office to any students who can read and write. I, Gilbert De Huff, will my taxi service to Ruth Beach. I, Pauline Wilson, leave my soft, southern accent to Wendell Searer. I, George Fowlkes, will my shop overalls to Duane Wing. I, Dave Mayer, leave my thick, curly hair to Coach Pellegrom. We-Ella and Ellen Hoak-will our punctuality to Bruno Masnari. I, Ronnie McClumpha, will my Jackson "pen-striped" suit number 217164 to anyone it will fit. II, Dick Berger,'who couldn't waste this opportunity, leave Pan Dickie toion second thought, I won't leave her. I, Sharon Peters, bequeath my power over women to underclassman who doesn't have any. In Witness Whereof, we, under the authority vested in us by said Class of 1948, set our hands and seals for and on behalf of said Class this fifth day of June, 1948. Www 0 . .

This was our biggest project of the year, and we enjoyed putting it on immensely. We sold cokes and hot dogs at some of the football games. We also sponsored a post game dance. Several of our boys made the varsity teams. The newly elected staff of the Junior Reflector took over their responsibili- ties and produced some fine results. We selected some good looking class rings to represent our group. Our play, "Big Hearted Herbert," was presented in March under the able direction of Mrs. Griffiths. Alice Abshire, Ruth Beach, Delwin Buckhold, Mar- jorie Baker, Pan Dickie, and Wendell Searer were the ones of us who made the honor roll. Miss Jones aided us very helpfully and successfully in completing the large number of tasks we undertook as juniors. Mr. Lasko also assisted with the Prom.

On February 20 we sponsored a post game dance after the South Haven game. Our star basketball players were Bill Crego, Bob Burns, and Roger Mitchell. These same boys plus Norman Roush and Doug Babcock complete our list of football stars. All these fellows played good games. What's a game without a cheerleader? Again, the sophomores fill the bill. Ruth Wahlstrom is a varsity cheerleader and a good one at that. We're smart, too.

The class gave money to help ship to Europe the packages received for UNESCO. Five cheerleaders were chosen from the ninth grade to support the second teams. They followed both football and basketball teams in home games and games away. The five who were chosen were Betty Seitz, Marilyn Stumpf, Nancy Hendricks, Beverly Spade, and Emma Jean Cordola. There were quite a few freshmen to receive letters for playing on the second team in football. They included Jerry Luzader, Art Payne, Ramon Underwood, Jerry Sangalli, Neil Rader, Dick Verheul, and Robert Bell.

Did we have a hard time finding our way A - around high school? Not the '48 rhinie class. Not after the first month or so anyway. J iii? . . . r, Being rhinies was sort of hard at first. There if were things, such as changing classes every hour, i- the noon rush at the lockers, and getting to school f- earlier, all of which were new to us. But I'm sure all of us eighth graders will say being rhinies has been our pride and joy of 1947-48.

JUNIOR REFLECTOR The past year has been a very success- ful one for the Junior Reflector Staff. We have all enjoyed bringing the news of the high school to the community. Our main social event was our "Gold- en Earrings" party for the former staff. The theme was cleverly worked out, and everyone had an excellent time. We all were busy at our particular tasks, and the page of news in the local paper has been a great satisfaction. Now that our work is finished for this year, we can feel that we have had a part in bringing enjoyment to others. We always remembered, as we worked on the paper, that those who write the news today are preparing the history of tomorrow.

Va' l ll,-ll. :puff MARCHIN G BAND The forty-nine piece all boys marching band under the direction of Mr. Van Sluyters had another top notch season this year. The boys started marching at the St. Joseph County Fair and at the Paw Paw Grape Festi- val. At all of the home football games the band marched and entertained the crowd for the pre-game and half-time with shows and maneuvers. At the St. Joseph game, the first home game, they wore their new uniforms for the first time. The highlight of the marching season came when the band was awarded another first division at the marching contest held at Strugis in October. The boys also marched for the Memorial Day parade and when this year- book was going to press, were considering going to Holland for another contest this spring. Dale Fitch was the drum major, and in the band's marching progress much credit is due to the seniors who helped drill the new members. CONCERT BAND Our concert band contained fifty-eight pieces and the officers were as follows: president, Alan Anderson, vice-president, Bob Teetersg secre- tary, John Dudd, librarians, Bob Lake, Gwendolyn Cosner, and Suzanne Rowe, and property managers, Luther Ash and Doug Stiteler. Mr. Van Sluyters was director. This year the band devoted all of its time to the spring concert and to the music contest. They worked hard to keep up the standard set last year by the 1946-47 concert band, which earned a first division at the district and state contests. Several members played solos in these contests, and there were also four ensembles. Seventeen members of our band went to the Sturgis Play Shop band clinic on February 21-22, under the direction of Professor William D. Revelli, director of the University of Michigan bands. Three members of the band-John Dudd, Jerry Irwin, and Warren Mayer-were selected to play in an all state band, which played in Detroit in April for the National Music Educators' Association. Other activities of the band were playing at the home basketball games and pep assemblies. We should really be proud of this organization. There are nine seniors who will graduate this year. They are Alan Anderson, Ralph Bell, Gilbert DeHuff, John Dudd, Bob Lake, Dick Maurer, Arvel Kelly, Irmel Kelly, and Bob Teeters. These boys helped a great deal and will be missed next year.

They were John Hopkins, president: Anne LeMense, Vice-presidentg Barbara Lang, secretary, and Evelyn Westphal, treasurer. Mrs. Hancock was our advisor. Our motto was "Books are like the windows of a great tower: they let light in." The highlight of the year was our trip to Plainwell on October 28. We visited the high school library and had a most enjoyable and beneficial afternoon. Some of our projects were mending books, having displays in the lower hall case, and keeping ourselves well read so that we were better able to serve the other students. Our activities were a "Get Acquainted" party, our trip to Plainwell, our St. Patrick's party, spring hike, and our picnic at Fisher Lake. With the passing of another year we hope that we will be able to give the students of Three Rivers High School the same cooperation and as- sistance we have been able to give in the past. GIRL RESERVES The Girl Reserves this year had an enrollment of eighty-five junior and senior girls-blondes, brunettes, redheads: some tall, some shortg some noisy, some quiet. This proved to be a very interesting and active group. T6 entertain the new members and to start the year right, at the first meeting the "Boy Girl Reserves" gave a true picture of a typical Tuesday night meeting with John Dudd as "Giggling Gertie" to bring down the house. From then on, the girls launched into a full program beginning with the informal initiation with the junior girls portraying such characters as Hitler, Carmen, Gravel Gertie, and Bugs Bunny. Then came the formal initiation with a reception for the mothers afterwards. An assembly skit, "What you wouldn't see and do at the Hillbilly Carnival," preceded the all school party, which was characterized by the wearing of bluejeans, plaid shirts, and eating hot dogs. Another project was that of serving luncheon to the University of Michigan Band. Then came the Yuletide season and the Christmas party complete with a real Santa Claus, tree, and presents. A Christmas chapel program was presented, and the auditorium was decked with evergreen and holly. The highlight of the year was the winter formal, "Coronation Ball," at which Maxine Woker was elected Queen. The Girl Reserve year was ended with a trip to Kalamazoo for a Civics Play and the formal installation of the new officers. , l- 4 3 First row, left to right: Delmer Wood.

As almost everyone knows, we plan to be the nation's future industrialists, and so our motto is "Service." We had a hard working group of officers-Clinton Schaunaman, president, Alfred Dailey, vice-president, Ralph Miller, secretary, and Hubert McDonald, treasurer. Mr.Handley, Mr. Bent, and Mr. Lasko were our advisors. During the year we sponsored a post game dance. The highlight of the year was our annual banquet and theater party. We had an excellent speaker, Mr. John Plow of Western Michigan College. Some of the activities were the fall party for new members, our shop visitation at Willow Run, and last, but not least, the spring picnic. Now, as'we close this term and look up from our work, we can see another year ahead of us filled with new opportunities.

HI-Y "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and commun- ity high standards of Christian character." This is our motto and We are really proud of it. The officers were Dick Berger, president, David Horst, vice-presidentg Don Maurer, treasurer, and Doug Halverson, secretary. Mr. Stutesman was our advisor. This year, after much leaning on the rail in the bookstore, we finally heard the fatal crackg up to that time we didn't have a project. After the rail had given under the weight of the throngs, the Hi-Y built the new counter. This masterpiece of carpentry will remind future T. R. students, as they lean on the counter, that the Hi-Y of 1947-48 is literally "keeping them on their toes." As time goes on, we hope that the Hi-Y will always bring true Chris- tian fellowship to the young men of Three Rivers High School.

VARSITY CLUB The officers this year were Dick Maurer, president, Dave Horst, vice- presldent 3 Bill Ward, secretary, and Jim Dal Ponte, treasurer. Our advisor was Mr. Pellegrom. This year we sponsored an all school party, and we didn't do so badly with it either. Then, we always had those monthly meetings and potluck suppers. Everyone knows we can really stow away the food. We all had a good time at our Dads' Night football program and also Parents' Night after the South Hoven basketball game. Good food and lots of it, however, will probably be our cherished mem- ory of Varsity Club.

A new constitution was drawn up placing high ideals and loyalties for the girls to live up to. In this way a higher standard has been set for the club, making better class- mates and coworkers of the girls. On December 17 the annual Christmas concert was presented to a large audience. The entire stage was decorated in white from the backdrop to the piano. The girls were dressed in white robes. All during the concert colored lights played upon the stage making the scene very effec- tive. In the spring, May 19, another concert was given by the club. The theme for the program was "Talent Night." Several specialty numbers were given by members of the club. The scene was a spring garden which was a lovely background for the club because they wore spring formals. Several times during the year the club took part in chapel programs. The Mendelssohn trio-Pan Dickie, Yvonne Wittenberg, Alice Abshire-made a number of appearances throughout the year. Ruth Gaskell, accompanist for the club has also accompanied the trio. During the first semester there was a second trio, composed of Pat Payne, Lois Seitz, and Mary Harder, ac- companied by Phyllis Tracy. The senior members of the club made their last appearance with the club at Baccalaureate Service on May 30.

J. H. S. The Junior High Singers is at present a group of sixty-five members. The officers are president, Ann Williamsg vice-president, Joan Linsnerg secretary-treasurer, Nancy Henclricksg librarians, Patty Neff, Jean Jeffers, Patsy Wiedenbeck, and Mary Frame. Mrs. Peters is director. The members consist of eighth and ninth grade girls. The aim of the J .H.S. is to attain enough independence, musical knowledge, and ability to enable members to become a part of the Big Sister group, the D.S. Club, by the time they are tenth graders. The J .H.S. participates in many of the school activities. Every year the club sings an anthem at one or two of the chapel services, but the most interesting activities are the two concerts in which they appear. At Christ- mas time the D.S. Club always gives a program of lovely Christmas music, and the Junior High Singers get their first big opportunity of the year. Also the J .H.S. is responsible for one all school party each year. This year they sponsored a dance appropriately named the "Sweetheart Shuffle" since it fell on February 13. Then in the spring there is another concert. This concert is in a lighter mood, done in entertaining style, and includes specialties from all four ward schools. At this point in the year, the J.H.S. members have quite a bit of experience behind them and are able to show greater skill in following directions. ,J aa,,7f4? M SENIOR PLAY On November 19, the senior class of 1948 presented the play, "Out of the Frying Pan," by Francis Swann, under the direction of Miss Comar. The plot centers around three young men lDick Berger, Bob Lake, and BillStutesmanJ and three young women CBetty Kennedy, Jeanette Careggio, and Irma Kimblel, who are sharing an apartment for financial reasons. The apartment they rent is immediately above that of a Broadway producer Mack Pattonj, who has quite a hit running and is about to cast a road company. They rehearse the play which he is currently producing, but the problem is how to get him upstairs to see it. Finally, when he came up to borrow for an experiment, the kids staged a murder scene. This was so realistic that it brought up the landlady 1Roeberta Barnes! and two policemen QDoug Halverson and Bob Owenj. The plot was further complicated by the arrival of the snobbish girl friend fNormandy Hussb, who threatened to tell the father of one of the girls fRonald McClumphaD about the way in which they were living. Finally, however, the play had a happy ending when the producer consented to hire the group as a cast for the play, "Mostly Murder." JUNIOR PLAY "Hurry, hurry!" With these two words the junior class opened their smash hit, "Big Hearted Herbert," a comedy in three acts, on the night of March 24. Mrs. Griffiths wasthe director. Herbert, portrayed by Wendell Searer, is a self-made man who insists that his family must be brought up in the plain traditions. When his daughter, Alice CBarbara Parhamb, becomes engaged to a Harvard man, Andrew Goodrich CLeoHandleyJ, he hits the ceiling. Along with this, his anger is increased by learning that his son, Junior Uohn Wittenbergj, wishes to go to college instead of into his father's machine shop. His wife, Elizabeth fLois Seitzj, decides something must be done with Herbert, and she very definitely does something, namely, changing her personality and embarrassing her husband in front of one of his best customers and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Havens fPeter Sangalli and Ruth Gaskellj, at a dinner party. All who saw the play had many a hearty chuckle from watching the "brat" of the family, Robert fPeter Dickiej. Also, the Andrewses, Jim and Amy fHarold Schultz and Alice Abshirej, did not help Herbert's anger bghtheir remarks. Mr. and Mrs. Goodrich lPan Dickie and Richard Fifel, proved to Herbert that their son was worthy of Alice. ,...f ,222-vf 'D Mc ,fa"M"M7 SPANISH CLUB First row, left to right: James Bycroft, Nancy Stickler, Miss Jones, Marian Subora, Mary DiDato, Evangeline Breyfogle.

Eighty-five members of the class of 1948 were interviewed as kindergartners in October, 1935. Twenty-three of that group are seniors today. The story, thirteen years ago, was in part as follows: "A trip through the four kindergartens of the city is well worth while, not only to meet these charming young- sters but to great future honor students, the valedictorian, the salutatorian, winners of cups, letters and so on. The future football squad and D.S. girls, the band, orchestra, and dramatic talent." On Monday it was a great pleasure for the same reporter of The Commercial staff to meet twenty-three of the eighty-five kindergartners of 1935 and to keep the date made thirteen years ago. Those of Mrs. Florence King's kindergarten at the Ruth Hoppin school were Dick Berger, who at the age of five years, wanted to see the world from an airplane, Dave Horst, at that time, was going to be an engineer on a stream- line train, Bill Gross, the farmer's life for him. Incidentally, Bill left Three Rivers after kindergarten and returned this fall to graduate with his class. He has turned his choice from farming to engineering. Jeannine Nidy was one of the little girls in Mrs. King's group. At the Huss Kindergarten, Second Ward, the children surrounding their teacher, Miss Helen Fife, were Mary York, Marianna Penn fnot in the-picturel, Mary DiDato, Dolly Boggio, Alan Anderson, Gilbert DeHuff, Jean Plummer, and Ralph Miller. One little girl said she wanted to be a teacher like Miss Fife. Alan Anderson wanted to be an engineer in those kindergarten days, and his choice remains the same. The tour continued to the Andrews School, Third Ward, with Miss Elizabeth Haldeman's kindergartners. Playing an Indian game were Roeberta Lee Barnes, Sharon Peters, Betty Brayman, Mary Timm, Ralph Dean, Virginia Westervelt, Dave Mayer, who planned to hang out his shingle, "Dr, David Mayer," Rosemarie Riggs, and Johnny Walls. Miss Kathleen Cook was the teacher of the Barrows Kindergarten, Fourth Ward. Her youngsters of this class of 1948 were Ronnie Javello and Flossie Walters. There are others to be graduated in June, 1948, who began kindergarten thirteen years ago, but they were either absent or not yet enrolled on that memorable October day in 1935. It was fun to keep a date of thirteen years' standing, and Betty Brayman remarked it was the only date she ever had to be reminded of in her life. fEditor's Note: This article written by Mrs. Gertrude Thoms Starr appeared in The Three Rivers Commerciall. 1 nifea. 301' The fir Spring :fd Si Sus of mans fancy 3 young urns + Everybody up at the ba r, the drinks are OU men Legrs not fight it :fx He feeds it Sp1nBCh If at first you don't succeed---- 1141? 3llF" nTho fair princess-lV.fmid to the G 2 4 ,344-l ..u Time out for women. llll 4 iq-NV,N. rw , than 1c'S bkgigii bgbh 0 4 In '-'L BJ? a1gV f1 ZPX WN Q6 fs '1 5 ga Q5 90 e k 0 J E 5 Jlbeb Vgw 1, 06.00 ' 66653 if .

VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1947 football season was not as successful as in previous yearsg however, there were times when the team showed flashes of ability. The Wildcats won two, tied one, lost five games, and tied with Dowagiac for fifth place in the conference. In the first game of the season the Wildcats traveled to Coldwater to receive their first non-conference defeat by a 13 to 6 score. Coldwater scored both their touchdowns on passes from mildfield while Ward, T. R., ran from his own twelve yard line for the locals' only score. In the next game Three Rivers played host to the St. Joseph Bears with the locals coming out on top. After Bernhardt of St. Joe broke away for a touchdown in the opening minutes of the game, the 'Cats had the con- test under control. In the early part of the second period Roush plunged over for a touchdown from his own two. The score was now 6 to 6. The third quarter was played in the Bears territory along with part of the fourth period. The Wildcats caught fire in the last few remaining minutes with a series of plays which set up Sangalli's end run for a score from his own ten. The final score was 13 to 6. The Wildcats visited the Dowagiac Chiefs in a contest which ended in a tie, 7 to 7. The 'Cats only score came in the second quarter when Bab- cock of T. R. recovered a blocked punt over the goal line. Dowagiac scored in the second period by a pass play from their own thirty yard stripe. When Three Rivers played State High at Waldo Stadium in an after- noon game, the Cubs trounced the Wildcats to a tune of 26 to 0. State High had the game on ice after their first touchdown in the first period. The next conference game was played at T. R. with South Haven, the opponent, coming out on top, 7 to 0. South Haven's touchdown came in the first quarter by a pass play from their owntwenty over the 'Cats' goal line. This was also "Dad's Night." Buchanan, who turned out to be the conference champs, nipped the Wildcats on their home gridiron, 13 to O. The Bucks outplayed the 'Cats all the game. Three Rivers traveled that famous twenty-three miles to Sturgis the following week with the Trojans on the long end of a 13 to 6 score. Sturgis got her two scores in the first half, while the 'Cats added their six- points in the fourth period by Ward's driving over from his own eight yard stripe. The last game of the season was played on Three Rivers turf with Niles, who lost 6 to 26. The 'Cats caught fire when Sangalli, Roush, and Ward scored in the first half. Sangalli galloped from his own thirty-five for the Wildcats' last score of the 1947 football season. Two juniors of the Three Rivers football team were chosen honorary members of the Southwestern Michigan all-conference team. They are Peter Sangalli and Alfred Dailey, who were half back and guard, respec- tively. The following- seniors graduate this year: Co-captains Bill Ward and Bill Abshire, Dick Maurer, Don Maurer, Neal Hunt, Jim DalPonte, Dick Berger, Ronald Javello, Charles Cairns.

Watson's reserve team had quite a successful season by winning three, tying one, and losing two of their games to the varsity squads. The Reserves lost their first game of the season to Bronson's varsity, 12 to 0, on the opponents' soil. Two bad breaks for the locals put the game on ice for Bronson. The following week the "Wildkittens" defeated Niles on their own turf to the overwhelming score of 38 to 6. After a 6 to 6 tie at the half, the Re- serves turned on the heat with passes from Luzader to Crego. Sturgis was the next team to be defeated by the Luzader to Crego pass plays and Evans' hard running. The score was 14 to 6 at Spence Field. Missing Evans in the line-up because of injuries, the locals had to rely on their pass offense, which clicked well enough to down Dowagiac, 7 to 6, on Dowagiac's gridiron. The Reserves played their last two games here against Whitey Pigeon varsity and the Sturgis reserve squad. White Pigeon beat T. R., 19 to 12, but they earned every point. The last game was played on a wet field with a fine rain which stalled the Reserves' pass offense. The score was a tie, 0 to 6, with both teams playing a good brand of ball.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The Wildcat cage of '47-'48 had a rather discouraging season by winning only three and losing twelve. The team showed it had playing ability at times, but were not able to keep it up for the whole game. The fellows lost quite a few games by one or two points with the other team always managing to come out on the long end. Niles was the first club that the 'Cats tangled with only to be defeated by four points, 33 to 37. The club didn't operate smoothly enough to beat them. Next week found the Wildcats on Buchanan's matchbox floor where they re- ceived their second downing of the year, 46 to 35. Wissler of the Bucks racked up twenty-five points compared to Ruggles' twelve for the 'Cats. Three Rivers took their third defeat at the hands of the Sturgis Trojans. The local cage had a ten point lead at the end of the second quarter only to have it broken down and lose by five points, 35 to 40. Capt. Schaunaman collected nineteen of the thirty-five. When the Dowagiac club came here, it meant that the Wildcats would break into the winning column for the first time this season. The local cage seemed to have come to life to win this nip and tuck game by two points, 37 to 35. After Christmas vacation had passed and the team had a chance to rest, they won their second game from the State High cage by eighteen points, 45 to 27. Ruggles and McKee cashed in for twenty-eight of those points. The next four starts were to end in defeat for the 'Cats and this losing streak didn't help the team in any way. South Haven came first with the score ending 42 to 33. Next on the agenda was Lakeview of the Twin Valley league, who were hot that night to the total of 50 to 25. Three Rivers played host to the St. Joe Bears. who had to fight all the way for their victory of 43 to 34. Playing Niles for the second time this season brought about a much worse defeat than the 'Cats had experienced at their hands the first time, 41 to 29. When the Bucks came to T. R. for the return match, the 'Cats jumped back into the winning streak for a brief moment. Good ballhandling and hard playing brought about this victory to the tune of 40 to 30. Three Rivers was never to be on the long end of the score for the rest of the season and lost the next four successive games. Sturgis sojourned to Three Rivers to trounce the locals, 41 to 31. State High won the return match at VVestem's gym by 41 to 37. This was a tight game all the way for everybody con- cerned. South Haven's zone playing team beat the 'Cats by only two points, 37 to 35. This was also parents' night for the local cage and was a tough one to lose. The last conference game of the season was played at St. Joe where the Wildcats were tamed by the Bears in a defeat of twenty points, Sl to 31. The Wildcats drew Sturgis for the tournament ar-fi lived up to their name by overwhelming the Trojans, 52 to 43. The 'Cats scored twenty-five points in the second quarter with Ruggles collecting seevnteen of these. After taking Sturgis, Coach PeIlegrom's team met the high-riding Coldwater squad with a dull thud. The fellows lllayld 3 VCU' 80041 Same, bl!! Coldwater played a better one. The final score was 63 to 41. Elwin Ruggles is the Three Rivers boy who made all-conference this year. Ruggles is a junior and should prove to be a valuable asset next season. The parents of the basketball players and their friends formed an organization which raised money for a new score board and timer. The board didn't arrive in time for the last home game, but it will be dedicated at the first home game next season.

RESERVE BASKETBALL The reserve team won twelve and lost three under the able coaching of Ed Blank. The Kittens lost two of these games by one point only. The Reserves lost their first game with Niles by one point, 29 to 28. Next followed a streak of ten wins before they lost again by only one point. Buchanan was snowed under by the Reserves to the tune of 32 to 23. Sturgis was the second away game, and they were beaten, 39 to 26. Blank's team won again with ease from Dowagiac by the score of 42 to 17. After Christmas had passed, the Reserves took up from where they had left off and started winning some more. The first was State High by 38 to 28 and then South Haven by 49 to 21. The Reserves traveled to Lakeview where they easily won for the sixth consecutive game by the score of 42 to 23. The Wildkittens barely won from the St. Joe Reserves with the final score being 29 to 28. Victories kept coming in and Niles was again down by sixteen points, 38 to 22. Buchanan was smashed under for the second time, 40 to 26, along with Dowagiac, 35 to 27. This winning streak was stopped by Sturgis in a thrilling game in which the Trojans won by one point, 41 to 40. After that one point defeat the Reserves rebounded back into the win column by downing State High Reserves, 36 to 31. When South Haven invaded T. R.'s gym for the last home game of the season, they got their worst beating of the year. The Wildkittens buried them with a score of 50 to 26. The last game of the season was played at St. Joseph where Coach Blank's Re- serves received their third and last defeat of the year. It was the worst game that the Reserves had played and the score showed it, 51 to 37. All in all this was the best reserve squad that Three Rivers has had for quite awhile, and the boys coming up from this group should help the Varsity a lot next year.

TRACK Last year's track team donned their water wings for practice because of the flooded field. No once during the whole year were they able to work out on the cinders, but that didn't stop them fron having a fair season. Mr. George McCormick, his first year here, coached the team as best he could with the materia that turned out for track. Three Rivers participated in three triangular contests. They also went to the Big Seven Confez ence meet and the regional meet plus sending three contestants to the state meet. On April 15 at the first triangular track contest Three Rivers took last place. Captain Timm wo the high jump with Al Dailey and "Tuffy" Thompson coming in second in the broad jump and pol vault, respectively. The second triangular meet was held on April 25 at Dowagiac with Three Rivers coming in secon place with a 35 to Niles' 72 and Dowagiac's 9. Carl Timm and Dave McKee were the only first winner in the high jump and the 440 dash, respectively.
