Wilsey In grateful appreciation for her services to Traverse City High School and for her un- failing interest in the welfare of her students during the past seventeen years, the 1940 Pines is sincerely dedicated to Miss Cora M. Wilsey, instructor in history, government, and economics. Helen Goodrich, Editor-in-Chief, planned and organized the entire annual. It was her duty to supervise each division and see that the work was done correctly. Betty Kistler and Bill Milliken aided the editor in collecting mater- ial, writing copy, running all kinds of errands and assisting with the work of each division. Bill Newton had charge of one of the most important divisions in the annual. His work covered every phase of photography. He also had charge of the music division. We owe our attractive cover de- sign to David Stiffler who originated and drafted the pattern himself. The modernistic designing in the interior of the annual was artfully done by Rosemary Rennie. Mary Bauer, Betty Hall, Betty Potrafke, John Titus, and Don Pratt took an active part in the produc- tion of the annual. Their chief duty was to write the copy for the organi- zation division. Although the president usually serves only as a financial adviser to the annual board, George Panter rerndered much valuable service to the photographic department, the editorial department, and the art de- partment. The most difficult job of covering the entire sports program of out school was ably taken care of by Bill Lichty and Bruce Wfangen. These two editors planned their entire di- vision, wrote all the sports copy, and arranged for all of their photog- raphy. The senior pictures, quotations, and extra-curricular activities of each senior were arranged by Vera Fouch and Jeanne MacIntosh. Because of the extensive club pro- gram in the school this year, the activity division was one of the most difficult parts of the annual. Dorothy Oakes, Editor of the organization department handled this large job very efficiently. This department was capably filled by Pauline Graphos and Phyllis Bauer. These girls wrote the copy for the administration division and assisted in writing the copy for the music department. N U The one exclusive sign of a thorough knowledge is the power of teaching. - ARISTOTLE If XT Page ten UAIQDU E President, Frank Ashton William Newton Colon Wares In every realm of high school life the Board of Education of the Traverse City Schools plays a fundamental role. Their one objective is to see that the students of Traverse City are given all the possible advantages of a modern, progressive educa- tion. Hiring teachers, supervising the activities of the superintendent of schools and principals, budgeting school finances for the year, and deciding other important issues which invariably arise, are only a few of the assignments of the board of Education. During the past year the Board has inaugurated a number of reforms in the curriculum of the school which have furthered immeasurably their ideal of a better-balanced, all-round liberal education. It is the duty of the superintendent, Mr. Loomis, to acquaint the board with the needs of the school system. T0 WHDM AT to EI P.:ge eleven 0 N O O O O C Arnell Engstrom Hazel Bird Iulius Hanslotxcky Realizing that the fine school buses which transport rural students to and from school were purchased by the Board of Education, that it is this board which purchased the sound motion picture machine and maintains its equipment, that band uniforms, and athletic equipment are all provided for through the Board of Education, that the speech and debate societies have been set on their feet by the help of the board, that transportation expenses for band, orchestra, debate and sports all come from the school board, that the public address system was financed by the board, and that it is this group of men who give Traverse City youth a chance to study, grow, and appre- ciate life, we, the students of Traverse City High School give a hearty, sincere, "thank you" to you, the Board of Education. ' -1 ni! Members of the Board of Education are as follows: FRANK ASHTON, President GLEN LOOMIS, Superiulendent COLON XVARES JULIUS HANSLOVSKY W'ILLIAM NEWTON ARNELI. ENGSTROM INEZ WAHLGREN, Clerk I-IAZEL BIRD Ll.. Su erintendent oomis II GLENN E. LOOMIS - A. B., M. S., M. A. Born in Hastings, Michigan, Mr. Loomis was graduated from Hast- ings High School in 1912. Following his graduation, he entered Olivet College from which he received an A. B. degree in 1916. In 1926, Mr. Loomis received an M. S. degree from Olivet and in 1930 he graduated from the University of Michigan with an M. A. degree. Mr. Loomis was formerly coach and principal of Charlevoix High School. Following this, he accepted the office as principal of Big Rapids High School, a position which he held for five years. Later he was offered the superintendency at Big Rapids which he also fulfilled for a period of five years. Besides his extensive career as an educator, Mr. Loomis is intensely interested in sports, having acted as coach and athletic official for a num- ber of years. He is also very active as a member on several state boards and commissions. In 1938, Mr. Loomis came to Traverse City where he has been super- intendent of public schools for the past two years. - in you or 4 W7 ell here you are, one hundred and eighty-nine strong. Graduation! What does it mean? For some it means out of high school into life's school. For others it means a short recess before the beginning of college work. For all it means a pause for a look toward the future. Stretched out before you are many pathways. At the end of each, you vision success. You have reached the first milestone along your way. You are to be congratulated. Your enthusiasm engendered by this commencement time may cause you to feel that your ultimate life's goal is assured. I hope that you will not think it untimely for me to warn you that you see only a very nebulus vision in the distance. Many lesser goals lie between. To make your vision a reality and not a mirage requires work, courage and loyalty. You will not find a rose strewn pathway. Every guide post along your way will be labeled WORK. There are no short cuts. You will find that the true joys on earth are for those who work. Be a builder-a creator, not a destroyer. Have courage. Listen to advice of others but have the courage of your own convictions. Your journey may take you over some bad roads. Sometimes you may meet with failure. Have the courage to profit by your mistakes. Success often comes from replanned and rebuilt failures. Be loyal. Loyal to your country, to your fellow men and yourself. Ours is the greatest country in the world. Keep it so. Do not allow your- self to be misled by the smooth twisting tongues of propagandists. Ameri- ca is still "the beautiful" - the land where youth has its greatest oppor- tunity. We succeed only as our fellow man succeeds. Lord Byron said, "Happiness was born a twin." Cooperate in building your community. A successful community means successful individuals. Above all be loyal to yourselves. "To thine own self be true and it follows as the night unto the day that thou canst not be false to any man." Life, youth, opportunity are yours. Success depends on how well you use them. With best wishes to you all. G. E. LOOMIS. LARS HOCKSTAD - A.B., A. M. Mr. Hockstad was born in Leelanau County and attended Traverse City High School from which he graduated in 1907.

Their chief ac- complishments h a v e been the Tournament Issue honoring our basketball winners and the Alumni Issue, both of which have been the first in the history of this paper. Some members again took their leave and attended the Michigan Interscholastic P r e s s Association Conven- tion held at the Uni- versity of Michigan in Ann Arbor on May 2, 5, and 4. Proud are we, the members of this staff, to announce Bill Lichty occupied the editor - in - chief's post for the past year and turned in a first rate performance at this responsible posi- tion, leaving a line re- cord for future editors to shoot at. Bruce XX'angen was elevated to the assist- ant editor's position at the close of the Hrst semester and aided Bill in putting out the pa- per throughout the rest of the year.

The council is guided by Governor William Milliken, Vice-Governor William Lichty, Secretary Louis Fa Franier, and Treasurer Don Sanford. During the school year Governor Milliken made several appoint- ments. First, Bill Newton was appointed Commis- sioner of Police and Safety, Charles Brown became the fire-marshall, Les McCain was named as the prose- cutor, Tom Lewis was party supervisor, Don Sanford served as Commissioner of Buildings and Ground, and Helen Goodrich was appointed as the Chief-jus- tice of the student court. The council was active in promoting school parties, sponsoring effective clean-up campaigns, and making laws for student control. One of the largest feats of the council was the 350.00 scholarship fund. This scholarship was raised by the council and given to some deserving senior for the furtherance of his edu- cation. In addition, the Student Council passed and enforced traffic rules, eliminated all student cars from Student Council Puge seventy-nine - - Government Q .

Barbara Herbert was chosen by student vote to act as clerk of the court and Les McCain served as prosecutor through appoint- ment by the governor. The court worked steadily all year to correct tardiness, skipping, and disorderly be- havior among the student body. They were respon- sible for the organization of a special seventh our study hall. This study period was controlled by the court members and many times a student would be sentenced to serve a week or more in this severe study room, as punishment for a misdemeanor.

LONGFELLOW Page eighty-six Traverse City High School Band The Band this year is to be complimented for the fact that they have had one of the most successful years in their history. The success of the band this year is to be attributed to Mr. Deike, their new director. Wfith four years experience in the University of Michigan Band and Orchestra, his new ideas have been respon- sible for building up of the musical appreciation of the school. During the football season the band furnished its between-the-halves entertainment with many novel ideas, and proved to be one of the best marching bands that the school has ever had. The band made two trips, one to Cadillac and the other to Manistee. President and Assistant Director - - .4 At our basketball games the band provided that es- sential spirit with their martial music. The only trips that the band made to basketball games was to the Tournament at Petoskey. The band has appeared twice this year for a con- cert, once for the combined musical program on De- cember 10 and for the Musical Varieties that proved to be such a hit with its professional-like touch. The climax of the year came when the band went to Ann Arbor for the State Music Contest returning with an "Excellent" rating.

This was a novel idea for high school orchestras but they received a fine rating at the state contest in Ann Arbor, although they were unclassified. With instruments added from the band, they accompanied the glee clubs in a performance of Romany Life on the Musical Variety program. The string ensemble traveled to Gaylord in the spring for a music festival and everyone derived a great deal. The orchestra has also helped with several assemblies, programs, etc., throughout the year.

Boys' Glee Club The Boys' Glee Club has again chalked up another successful year of musical accomplishments. Despite the fact that most of the boys were new, they have come through the year with Hying colors. Their first public appear- ance was at the Grange Con- vention where they enter- tained the Grangers with their songs. The next ap- pearance was in the com- bined musical program on December 10, and finally in the Musical Varieties pro- gram. Later in the year some of the boys went to Grand Rapids with the mixed chor- us to participate in The State Vocal Festival.

The Brass Ensemble The Clarinet Quartet The String Quartet The Saxaphone Quartet The music department is constantly being called upon to furnish music for programs of all sorts. Naturally, the band, orchestra, or glee club, can not comply with these requests in many cases because of their size, so they are taken care of by the ensembles and soloists. These ensembles and soloists who carry the brunt of most the work during the year for the various programs are to be lauded for their efforts. Perhaps one of the busiest of the ensembles has been the String Ensemble who had so many requests for performances, that they were unable to take care of them all. It was composed of Victoria Podoba, Phyllis Bauer, Grace Gilbert, and Verna Gilbert. They traveled to Ann Arbor in the Spring for the State Music Festival where they received an "excel- lent" rating. The Brass Ensemble also has performed many times throughout the year for assemblies and the like. At the State Music Festival they received a "superior" rating and were recommended to the National Festi- val held in Battle Creek. The Brass Ensemble was composed of Bob Ransom, Harry Lichty, julia Atchi- son, Ed Irish, Bill Newton, and Mervin Salenski. The Trombone Quartet The Trombone Quartet, while not as busy as some, also received a "superior" rating at the Music Festival and were also recommended to the Nationals. It was composed of Mervin Salenski, Wey Wenzel, Lloyd Bovee, and Willard Berry. The Saxaphone Quartet composed of Bob Gra- ham, Dorr Mead, George Peck, and Dick Greenley, were engaged several times during the year for the "Musical Varieties," for assemblies, and for other programs. They received an "Excellent" rating at the Music Festival. The Clarinet Quartet also went to Ann Arbor where they received an "excellent" rating. While not as active as others, they also did their part in contri- buting the music of the year. It was composed of Bob Bergstrom, Van Hardy, LeRoy Ghering, and Sol Cavitch. Next year Mr. Deike plans to have more ensembles than this year because he believes that the training re- ceived in ensemble work is invaluable so far as de- veloping intonation in the band and orchestra. Page ninety-one Soloists Harry Liclaty Shirley Tremaiue The Afcompanists Bob Dewar Hobart Hultz Some of the Soloists who made good showings this year at Ann Arbor were Shirley Tremaine, Violist, who received first division, Harry Lichty, trumpet, second division, Bob Dewar, drums, second division, Julia Atchison, horn, second division. The soloists from Junior High who went to Ann Arbor were: Richard Greenley, Saxaphone, first division, David Courson, trumpet, first division, Helen Hugart, flute, second division, and David Murray, bass, fourth division. The accompanists who worked untiringly throughout the year working perhaps harder than the soloists themselves, were Mariam Davis and Louise Perry. Hobart Hultz, a Post Graduate this year and one of the most outstanding musi- cians that the school has ever produced, not only rendered his services on numerous programs throughout the year, but was assistant director of the band. Hobart, who desires to become an instructor of music, has spent all the time he possibly could helping Mr. Deike, helping soloists, and doing whatever had to be done. He has recently been awarded for his efforts by a scholarship to Michigan State College where he plans to further his study of music.

Always helpful and under- standing to everyone who met him, Mr. Holliday was the friend of all Traverse City, particularly high school students. He played a large part in improving high school sports in Traverse City and was continually striv- ing to improve the Northern Michigan Class B Con- ference. To the memory of this eminent man we dedicate the sports section of the 1940 "Pines" r Page ninely-four FO OTBA LL Pictured above is the Trojan gridiron squail which finished in third place in the Big Seven standing.

Grand Rapids Union invaded Thirlby Field on September 22 and atoned for last year's 7 to 6 defeat by handing the Trojans a 14 to 0 setback. Although the Orrmen were superior in the air they could not cope with the strong Red Hawk ground attack and were outplayed during most of the game. On September 29, the Trojans took on a strong Gaylord eleven at Thirlby Field and barely nosed them out by a 7 to 0 count. Captain Bob Hemming, whose fine play was a deciding factor in the contest intercepted a Gaylord aerial and streaked thirty yards down the side- lines for the only score of the game. The Black and Gold eleven entertained its first conference oppo- nent on October 6 and walked off the field with a 14 to 6 victory over Cheboygan's Chiefs safely tucked away. George Umlor shone brightly for the Trojans throughout the contest and added to his laurels by blocking a kick which was good for a touchdown. Alpena's Wildcats came to town on Friday, the 13th, and pro- ceeded to completely outplay the Trojans to earn a 12 to 0 decision. Hard luck continued to dog the Orrmen, Captain Bob Hemming being seriously injured during the second half. Dick Nelson and Harry Bauman were a stone wall on defense. The Trojans chalked up their second conference win when they invaded Cadillac on October 21, smothering the Vikings beneath a 32 to 6 score. Bill Newton took over the injured Gardner's center post and turned in a top-notch performance throughout the game. A greatly improved Manistee eleven invaded the Trojan stronghold on October 28 and proceeded to absorb a 24 to 6 shellacing at the hands of the up and coming Cherry City gridders. Jack Morgan and Paul Gardner di- vided most of the scoring between them. ' The night of November 3 found Ludington's champion Orioles and the Black and Gold eleven battling it out under the arcs on the Thirlby greensward with the southerners finally emerging with a 7 to 0 victory in their possession despite the efforts of Mac Cox, stellar Trojan tackle who turned in a sparkling performance at his position. The defeat eliminated the Trojans from the title race. Coach Orr's charges wound up the 1939 gridiron campaign by overwhelming a weak Petoskey eleven by a score of 34 to 0. The Trojans held the upper hand 1 throughout the contest with Charley Frye, Warren Wyckoff, and .lack Merrill playing a bang up game in their last appearance under the Black and Gold colors. The juniors and sophomores have not been men- tioned but contributed much toward making the 1939 season a success. Coaches Orr and Menzel also deserve a bouquet for the fine work that they did in developing and molding a strong eleven. The following twenty-one players received major awards to their service on the gridiron. Seniors: Harry Bauman, Mac Cox, Charles Frye, Paul Gardner, Bob Hemming, jack Merrill, jack Morgan, Dick Nelson, Bill Newton, and George Umlor. juniors: Bill Baker, Jack Bensley, Russell Cannute, Dick Fitzmaurice, Rex Gatn, jack Hilliker, Wilson Hubbell, and Jack Woodrow. Sophomores: Lee Blair, Don Oseid, and Dale Wares. jack Woodrow was unanimously chosen to captain the 1940 Trojan eleven by this years' letter winners. Gridiron stalwarts who won places on different all- conference teams include Harry Bauman, Mac Cox, Paul Gardner, Bob Hemiming, ,lack Morgan, Dick Nelson, .lack Woodrow, and Dale Wares.

Four days later the Orrmen encountered the only breather on their 14 game schedule in the form of St. Francis and buried the Parochials beneath a 27-7 score. Cheboygan's Chiefs were the next victims of the Black and Gold crew, succumbing 26-9 before the Trojan onslaught which was paced by lanky jack Heimforth. Ludington's champion Orioles invaded the Trojan stronghold the following week and emerged from a hectic contest with a 20-19 overtime victory in their possession. Saginaw Eastern handed Traverse its second straight overtime set- back by scoring five points in the extra three minutes to nose out the locals, 26-23. Mac Cox turned in a top notch performance at the center post. Bouncing back after the two overtime defeats, the Black and Gold quintet tripped up Petoskeyls strong Northmen by a score of 20-14 with Bill Milliken handling his guard position in excellent style. The Trojans made it two straight with a clean cut 26-13 victory over Alpena with Bob Hemming's fine play a deciding factor in the contest. Trojan title hopes faded as Ludington chalked up a decisive 26-14 win over the Orrmen on the winners' home floor in a game in which the Orioles were never headed. Gloom continued to prevail over the Trojan camp as the Black and Gold crew dropped their third conference game to Manistee's surprising Chippewas by a score of 30-23.

Returning to their own encampment, the Black and Gold quintet took the measure of Petoskey for the second time with Charley fBlue- beardj Frye leading Coach Orr's charges to a 30-17 triumph. An age old rivalry continued when Cadillac's Vikings met the Trojans four days later with the Cherry City Eve smothering the southerners' at- tack and unleashing a powerful one of their own to bury Coach Bryan's crew beneath a 42-13 score. Visions of a runnerup spot in the Big Seven standings were blasted as Manistee again sunk the Black and Gold five, this time by a 17-13 count. Taming Alpena's Wildcats proved to be an easy job for the Trojans who wound up the season with an impressive 40-22 victory over the crew from Thunder Bay, giving them fourth place in the Big Seven Confer- ence. In the class B regionals at Petoskey, the Trojans engaged their 1940 nemesis, Manistee, in the finals after having eliminated Petoskey and Rogers City by scores of 35-22 and 22-20, respectively, and scalped the Chippewas by the lopsided count of 37-12. Advancing to the state tourney, the Black and Gold crew trounced Sandusky, 53-16, at Midland and followed it with a close 21-19 decision over a strong South Haven quintet at Lansing in the semi-finals. Headlines screamed the news of a startling Trojan victory after the Black and Gold cagers annexed the Michigan class B crown by coming from behind to edge out a powerful Detroit St. Theresa quint, 26-25, in the -jenison field house at East Lansing. A jubilant student body greeted the victorious players and coaches on the Monday after their return from East Lansing, with a general as- sembly preceeding a parade and snake dance throughout the city. Cele- brating continued through the week with the victors attending numerous functions held in their honor. j mnqe wtfstei Uri 114.2 bench The bcmd -Cm, essential aiu' cm Page one hundred RESERVES RECORD 2C 27 2C 11 12 29 19 14 25 56 9 2 8 12 242 Reserves 9 Leelanau .,....,,Y...

Seniors are in the first row, juniors in the second, and sophomores in the third and fourth. Paul Gardner, a fast dashman for two years, placed fifth in the state finals in Lansing in his junior year and was again the mainstay in the sprints this season, with Dale Wfares and Walt Cole, a couple of fast and promising sophomores, as his running mates. Mac Cox, who took a fifth in the state meet last year, returned to lead the field in the half-mile. He was seldom beaten in this territory, but was often pushed hard by Don Oseid, another sophomore, and Les McCain. The quarter-mile found four fast men vieing for, and dividing quite evenly, the honors in this gruelling race. Laverne Smith come up with many good 440's, with Vernon Hoxie, a hard working junior, always fighting for the lead. Bill Lichty and Francis Rollo, a mid- semester senior, also turned in some nice performances during the year. Assistant athletic director lrving Menzel took over the reins as head track and field mentor as the Trojans opened a belated cinder season. Persistent cold and con- stant rains hampered the squad of over fifty candidates during the first few weeks of training and resulted in the Black and Gold thinclads dropping the first dual meet to Cadillac on April twenty-sixth. Five relay teams made the jaunt to Mount Pleasant for the annual Central State Relays and made a creditable showing, although none of the foursomes were able to bring back a first place. Showing continued improvement, the Trojans finished a strong second to class A Alpena in the annual Big Seven meet held on the local cinder paths May 11. The thinclads climaxed the season a week later by nosing out Cadillac in the regional held at Cadillac, scoring SOM points to the Vikings 48. Mac Cox, Franny Rollo, Bill Milliken, Jack Bensley, Walt Cole, and Paul Gardner qualified for the state Hnals at Lansing and made the trip with Coach Menzel on May 25. Donald "Bones" McCall was head manager and trainer and poses here at the lower left with "Yahoudi," team mascot. jack Weese also aided in taking care of the equipment. The top picture shows a view of the field with many of the track stars in action during a workout. The fieldhouse is in the background. jack Bensley was the school's only entry in the pole vault, and chalked up several places in the meets. Bill Baker and Karl Goss are two hurdlers of whom much will be expected next year. LeRoy Gehring was forced to play second fiddle to a couple of hardy jun- iors, jack Renehan and Glenn Soapp- man, in the mile, but ran a strong race in the long distance. All trackmen men- tioned on these pages are seniors un- less otherwise designated, and read in the pictures from left to right. Page one hundred three Bill Milliken, already sporting two stripes for his ability to clear the bar at high altitudes, continued his record in the high jump, with Dorr Mead, a jun- ior, as a second Trojan contender. Louis LaFranier, Jack Merrill, and Jerry Mikesell were assigned to the hard task of filling the place of Curt Alward, star hurdler lost by graduation last year. Points were scored consistent- ly by all three. Page one hundred four BASEBALL Under the able leadership of Manager Reid Luse, the Trojan nine Qpictured abovej hung up an impressive record in the second year of high school diamond competition since baseball was brought back as a major sport. The spring of 1940 ushered in base-ball's second season in Traverse City High School, the sport having been revived last year. Reid Luse took over the manager's reins and started practice as soon as the first signs of spring appeared. Thirty-two boys answered Manager Luse's call for candidates with twenty-two being retained. XVith twirler jim Stoll sparking the locals, the 1940 campaign was successfully inaugurated when Benzonia was the victim of a no-hit, no-run game while the Tro- jans were gathering eight markers. The Black and Gold diamond crew continued to register wins throughout the season while dropping only a few contests to their opponents. In all, the Cherry City nine compiled an enviable record in baseball's sophomore year at the high school. The squad was made up of veterans who returned from last year's strong nine and a number of promising recruits. Bob Hemming as first string receiver handled the pitchers well throughout the season besides contributing plenty of batting punch. The Trojan infield of Jim Sbonek, Charley Frye, Bill Howard, and Garth Dean at first, second, short, and third, respectively, functioned smoothly during the campaign and formed a formidable quartet for enemy pitchers. The outfield which was shifted around during most of the season gave the opposing pitchers headaches and was also strong defensively. Jim Stoll, Gene Stoll, and Darwin Hopkins formed an able hurling trio which handcuffed the enemy batters most of the time. Others on the squad besides those already mentioned are Wey Wenzel, Dick Loomis, Leonard Brief, Gilford Brief, Dick Nelson, Lars Halverson, Jim Palmer, Ken Nelson, Eric Halverson, Dale Slocum, Ed Broomhead, Dick Stowe, Mort Bruy- ette, and R.

Top Row: Bruce Wangen, Dale Wares, jack Bensley, Dick Fitzmaurice, Coach Robert Meggison. With the first signs of spring, candidates for the 1940 Trojan tennis team dusted off their racquets and prepared to fight for the seven berths on the squad. After a few weeks of practice, places on the team were determined and Coach Robert Meggison set about the task of moulding a strong net squad out of an assortment of experienced and inexperi- enced players. After dropping their first engagement to Cadillac, the Black and Gold netters reached new heights by decisively trimming a powerful Frankfort aggregation by a score of 5-2. Continu- We 9 ing to maintain their fast early season pace, the Trojans turned in sparkling performances throughout the remainder of the 1940 campaign and, although suffering their share of reverses, made this season the best since the sport was re- vived a year ago. The seven'man squad numbered only two seniors, namely Bob Smith and Bruce Wangen. Those who will return for next year's net wars are Dick Loomis, jack Bensley, Dale Wares, Dick Fitzmaurice, and john Collins. G00 Pictured above is the crack Trojan golf squad which followed the victory trail throughout the season. Bottom row CL to RJ: Bob Cole, Bun Green, Rupert Clark. Top row: Bob Heuss, Harry Lichty, jack Hensel, Bob Ransom, Bill McCall, Coach Charles Crawford. Although hampered by bad weather, the Trojan golf team rounded into top condition in a short time and started the season with a bang by overwhelming Big Rapids and Manis- tee in their first two contests. The Black and Gold linksmen continued to trod in the path of success for the rest of the campaign to hang up a record for future golf squads to shoot at. Jack Hensel, Bill McCall, Bob Ransom, Bob Cole, Rupert Clark, Harry Lichty, Bob Heuss, and Bernard Green made up this year's.str0ng aggregation, each consistently carding low scores during the spring's competition. Hensel, McCall, and Ransom will be lost through graduation but prospects for another good year seem especially bright. Credit for the successes of the 1940 season must go not only to the players but to Charles Crawford as well, whose coaching throughout the campaign was of inestimable value.

It is with both happiness and regret that in a few days we leave this building never again to return as students of the Traverse City High School, for today marks a new period in our lives. It is fitting that we should here express our indebtedness to our parents for the unselfish sacrifices, encouragement, and inspiration they have given us throughout our high school years. May we prove to them and to the faculty members, who have instructed and inspired us in the pursuit of education, that the high ideals of honor, loyalty, and co-operation which they have instilled in us will not be forgotten as we take our places in a world sorely in need of such ideals. Again, on behalf of each member of the Class of 1940, may I extend to you our heartiest and most cordial welcome. WILLIAM MILLIKEN Page one hundred eight "In Our Years" PART I. "The Stone Age" After deep and concentrated thought, we historians decided that the years of our class are comparable to the principal ages in history, insofar as our abilities and progress are concerned. just as the man in the Stone Age was practically at a loss to know how to accomplish the necessary duties in order to live, so were we in the freshman year hampered by our lack of self confidence and knowledge. When primi- tive man learned that he could better himself by using simple weapons, the beginning of his progress was assured. During the freshman year, we learned by experience and through the aid of our teachers to have more confidence in ourselves. A capacity for leadership was im- planted in some-others developed abilities to succeed along other lines, such as sports, dramatics, science, music and journalism. The following officers were chosen to guide the destinies of our class: Bill lVIilliken, president, Bill McCall, vice-president, Jack Heimforth, secretary, Louise Perry, treasurer. The freshman class sponsored two of the outstanding parties of the year. The first, which was a hard times affair, was held on November 6. The second, on May 8, was attended by more than one hundred persons, who danced in the Community Room to Al Wayne's orchestra. We were the first freshman class to inhabit the new Junior High building. We had been put in with the Senior High school students after the school had burned in 1934, and so we were very proud to again have our own building. In music, Jack Hensel, Paul Gardner, Robert Graham, and Tom Lewis played in the state contest at Ann Arbor. Some people excelled scholastically. In the honor assembly, the following peo- ple received bronze pins for their scholastic records: Eileen Groesser, Vera Fouch, Helen Goodrich, Jack Heimforth, Dorothy Crawford, Mary Emerson, William New- ton, David Stiffler, Victoria Padoba, Bill Lichty, and Virginia Wahl. MARY EMERSON Page one bundred mne "In Our Years " PART II. "The Bronze Age" As man in the Bronze Age discovered that by mixing tin and copper together to form bronze he would have a stronger material for his weapons to combat foes in his world, we found that we had gained more courage and confidence from our ex- periences of the previous year. To guide our way through the labyrinth of our first year in Senior High, we chose Paul Gardner, president, Virginia Wahl, vice-president, Helen Seabrook, secretary, and Jeanne MacIntosh, treasurer. During this year floodlights, which made the football season a brilliant one, were introduced into our school, the first time in a school belonging to the Big Seven Conference. In honor of the football team, who won the Big Seven Championship for the first time in the history of the school, we sponsored a "Big Seven Chan1p's Review." Paul Gardner, Charles Frye, Bob Hemming, and Harry Bauman were honored. Another honor came to our class through Helen Goodrich, who won the dis- trict declamation contest with "Salt" by Henry Van Dyke. Because of numerous complaints that the students of Traverse City high school were below average in spelling, Mr. Fisher conducted a spelling test for all high school students. Jack Gillett led the boys of the school with a perfect score, and Eileen Groesser the girls with a score of 99. Helen Goodrich, William Lichty, and David Stiffler were awarded silver schol- arship pins for their high scholastic standing at the honor assembly. We are proud to say that our Sophomore class with two hundred twenty-four members was the largest in the history of the school. VV e feel that we could not have passed through the Sophomore year, the Bronze Age, without the kind and helpful advice of Miss Waltz and Mr. Horning. We regret that these two, who gave so freely of their time and shared with us our successes and difficulties, are not with us as we reach our goal. PATRICIA HEIGES Page one hundred ten "In Our Years " PART III. "The Iron Age" Came September 1958, with a class of 207! Nearly all of us had, started in the rough two years before, picking up new and simple facts for our tools. A year later this same class began to Put a little polish on the knowledge and sharpened their tools for their own advantage. The members of junior class began to diversify and display individualities. Their accumulated information showed the polish and initiative of the iron age. Some developed qualities of leadership. In acknowledgement of that we elected William Lichty, presidentg Patricia Kephart, vice-presidentg Phyllis Bauer, secretary, and Charles Brown, treasurer. Several students of the class found argumentation helpful in their pursuits, just as mankind had eventually learned how to settle its arguments more peacefully. De- bating the question of the United States forming an alliance with Great Britain, the entire team was composed of juniors, who were: Helen Goodrich, George Panter, William Newton, Phyllis Bauer, Barbara Hervert, Robert Smith, and Leslie McCain. As with the falling of a nation and the rising of a new more powerful one, they were defeated in their first attempt, but later pushed forward and won the regional championship. Others acquired the ability to write. This ability was well displayed in the Challenger magazine, a magazine whose primary purpose was to give each student in the school a literary challenge. Under the able guidance of David Stiifler, it be- came popular throughout the region. As in the year before, many of the hale and hearty men of the class participated willingly and helpfully in the realm of sports. Both football and basketball con- tained its quota of junior members. During this year we also saw old sports renewed and new sports initiated into our athletic program. Our classmates cooperated in these events in goodly numbers. In the Junior Tea and Fashion Show another leader was distinguished in the chairman, Phyllis Bauer. Other qualities were also illustrated in those who partici- pated here- such qualities as poise and personality. In the month of May the juniors concentrated their efforts into a magnificent junior prom which was set off from other similar affairs by its marine and pisca- torial atmosphere. The responsibility of supervision was invested in the general chairman, Jerry Mikesell. Under him several others supervised the work of particular committees. As a reward for their achievements in scholarship, character, leadership, and service, the following students were elected to the National Honor Society: Eileen Groesser, Helen Goodrich, Phyllis Bauer, William Newton, William Lichty, Jack Heimforth, Rosemary Rennie, Patricia Kephart, David Stiffler, Vera Fouch, and William Milliken. As the accomplishments of the iron age paved the way to greater achievement in the steel age, so the accomplishments of the class of '40 as juniors made the senior year more enjoyable and productive. WALTER JOHNSON Page one hundred eleven "In Our Years " PART IV. "The Age of Steel " Carrying on the analogy created by our fellow historians, we feel that it would be an endless task to review the progress made by man in the social, economic, edu- cational, and scientific fields. In this Age of Steel, man has indeed learned to make better use of the natural resources and abilities given him. Comparing our twelfth year to this modern age, we find our senior year, too, has been one of great progress and activity. Through the capable direction of our faculty and the association with our fellow classmates during the past years, we have exercised further our initiative, knowledge, and ability - qualities which have enab- led us to carry on successfully the many duties of a progressive senior class. Witli 189 students receiving diplomas this year, we are proud to boast that this is the largest graduating class in the history of Traverse City High School. In the fall election, the following executives were chosen to lead us: President, George Panter, vice-president, Don Sanford, secretary, Pauline Graphos, and treas- urer, Robert Ta lor. ' Y W'ith complete revision of the constitution, our student council and student court have functioned effectively under the excellent supervision of Governor Wil- liam Milliken assisted by Vice-Governor, William Lichty, Clerk, Louis La Franierg and Treasurer, Don Sanford. Helen Goodrich was appointed Chief-Justice of the Student Court with Leslie McCain as Prosecutor. Many other seniors participated actively in the student government either as officers or members. In the sports department, the football team made a good showing under Captain Bob Hemming. Other seniors on the squad included Charles Frye, Paul Gardner, Harry Bauman, Mac Cox, George Umlor, jack Morgan, Wilson Hubbell, Dick Nel- son, jack Merrill, and William Newton. Our basketball team ended in a blaze of glory by bringing Traverse City its first state basketball championship after defeating Detroit's St. Theresa at the Jenison Field House, East Lansing. The seniors playing their last high-school basketball were Mac Cox, jack Hensel, jack Heimforth, Jack Morgan, Bob Hemming, Charles Frye, George Umlor, Francis Rollo, and Bill Milliken. Jack Hensel acted as President of the Athletic Association, and Dorothy Crawford, veteran cheer leader, added spirit throughout the season's games. Seniors on the baseball team were James Stoll, Bob Hemming, Garth Dean, Lars Halverson, james Sbonek, Charles Frye, Darwin Hopkins, Dick Stowe, and Dick Nelson. Those participating in track were Paul Gardner, Mac Cox, Bill Milliken, Louis La Franier, William Lichty, Les McCain, james Hughes, Jack Merrill, Jerry Mikesell, Francis Rollo, and Laverne Smith. Seniors on the golf team were Jack Hensel and William McCall, and on the tennis team were Robert Smith, Bruce Wan- gen, and Robert Ransom. Future war reporters and commentators found ample experience and training on the Black and Gold staff. The following members of the class of '40 who made pos- sible this weekly publication were: Bill Lichty, Bruce Wangen, Dorothy Oakes, jean MacIntosh, Grace Gilbert, Bob Taylor, Rosemary Rennie, Phyllis Bauer, jo Anne Roosa, Axel Lardie, Paul Gardner, Harry Hibbard, Bob Ransom, Marjorie Grind- stuen, Helen Seabrook, Helen Goodrich, and Robert Smith. One of the winter season's outstanding social events was the Senior Frolic on February 24, a formal affair in an atmosphere of Toyland, planned by Betty Kistler and her able committee. As a climax to all social events of the year, on May 29 the junior class royally entertained the seniors, faculty, and board members with the colorful junior Prom. Page one hundred twelve A beautiful setting and good orchestra glorified the occasion. We wish to extend our appreciation to the juniors. The debate squad composed of Les McCain, Barbara Herbert, William Newton, Joe Backorik, Robert Taylor, and Walter johnson as seniors, again was successful in entering the state eliminations. In May, the senior play, N320 College Avenue," was presented with the follow- ing cast of twenty-six seniors: Mary Blanchard, Joe Backorik, Robert Taylor, Louis La Franier, Betty Law, jerry Mikesell, joan Shaw, Robert Bergstrom, Virginia Thorpe, Elmer Ritola, jo Anne Roosa, jack Gillett, Pauline Graphos, Robert Smith, Phyllis Bauer, Axel Lardie, Louise Perry, Grace Gilbert, Anthony Mance, Jack Mor- gan, Anna Tafelsky, Robert Dewar, Ed Irish, Betty Ransom, George Panter, and Les McCain. The publication of the senior annual, "The Pines," was made under Helen Good- rich, Editor-in-Chief, and her staff consisting of William Milliken, Betty Kistler, Rosemary Rennie, David Stiffler, Vera Fouch, Jean MacIntosh, Phyllis Bauer, Pauline Graphos, Dorothy Oakes, William Newton, Bruce Wangen, Wfilliam Lichty, Virginia Wahl, Dorothy Crawford, and George Panter, One of the outstanding organizations of our school is the National Honor So- ciety, established here in 1930. It is the ambition of every student to achieve such an honor, and to be eligible for this organization there are four basic qualities: scholar- ship, leadership, service, and character, on which decisions are made by the teachers. The students chosen this year were: Barbara Herbert, Virginia Thorpe, May Emer- son, Betty Kistler, Robert Bergstrom, Walter Johnson, Anna Tafelska, Grace Gilbert, jack Hensel, Virginia Wahl, Bruce Wangen, Mary Blanchard, George Panter, Ester Brown, Margaret Ruegsegger, Pauline Graphos, Helen Seabrook, Victoria Podoba, and Patricia Heiges. Others of our class have distinguished themselves in musical endeavors. The members of the band and orchestra who are seniors are: Robert Dewar, Arland San- born, Robert Ransom, Robert Graham, Helen Babcock, Robert Bergstrom, LeRoy Ghering, Ed Irish, Elaine Lautner, William Newton, Louise Perry, Phyllis Eldred, Phyllis Bauer, Victoria Podoba, and Grace Gilbert. One of our number added much gayety and harmony to our social life by organizing a superlative dance orchestra, called "Bob Ransom's Band." Vera Fouch was chosen to represent the seniors at the D. A. R. convention in Battle Creek. The delegate is selected on qualities of personality, scholarship, and leadership. An honor group composed of those students who have maintained an average of ninety or better throughout their four years in high school will this year take the place of a valedictorian and salutatorian. Those in the "above ninety" group are Phyllis Bauer, Mary Blanchard, Mary Emerson, Vera Fouch, Helen Goodrich, Pauline Graphos, Eileen Groesser, Patricia Heiges, Jack Heimforth, jack Hensel, Walter Johnson, Patricia Kephart, Betty Kistler, William Lichty, XVilliam Milliken, William Newton, Victoria Podoba, Rosemary Rennie, Helen Seabrook, David Stilfler, Virginia Wahl, and Bruce Wangen. History has recorded much advancement from the time of the rude man of the earliest ages, who made his weapons and secured his food and lodging by the simple use of the stone, to this age of rapid transportation and communication, in which we are enabled to enjoy such a high standard of living. na- We, too, have grown and developed in the last four years of secondary school life. Although we as a class and as individuals have progressed and grown in initi- ative, poise, and knowledge through these years, we realize we have much more to accomplish. PAULINE GRAPHOS HELEN e SEABROOK Youth's Prayer Young! And proud of our inheritance! justly proud to be Americans For the freedom of this country thafs been won.

We are leaving behind us four of the happiest years of our lives. We are also leaving a record, a record of accomplishments, influence, and contributions. Perhaps our senior year has been the most significant period of our high school days. For it was during this year that we became the upper-classmen, the leaders in school life and the directors in school activity. In the fall of 1939, the seniors launched out to improve the student government and make it one of the finest in Northern Michigan. With Bill Milliken as governor, the council was destined to be a strong, active group of young legislators. It was this council that raised a 3550.00 scholarship to further the education of some deserving senior, that revised and printed a practical, workable constitution for senior high school, that drafted and put into effect a new set of rules to govern school parties, that eliminated congestion in the halls by instituting traffic rules, that sponsored effective clean-up campaigns, and started action on the huge project of paving Pine Street between Seventh and Eighth streets. In conjunction with the student council, the student court was instituted to give justice to the students as well as enforce student laws. The court consists of eight associate justices, a student prosecutor, the court secretary, and the chief-justice. During the course of our school year, we have felt the influence of a new activity period especially designed to give everyone the opportunity of serving in one or two clubs. Incorporated in the activity period were special courses in vocational guidance, prepared and directed by Mr. Karl Fisher. Over forty clubs have been functioning during this last year. It is needless to say that the Traverse City Trojans emerged victorious from the state class B basketball tournament this spring because the seniors of 1940 had eight A-1 cagers on the team. This year's National Honor Society may well attribute its extensive program of activities to the senior blood in its ranks. The society sponsored an honor campaign, a formal initiation service for the new members, and an honor banquet in May. Two important influences in school life have been the Black and Gold and the Challenger, a literary magazine edited by David Stiffler. Both the school paper and the Challenger have made great strides this year. The Black and Gold, under the direction of its editor, Bill Lichty, published an eight page weekly all through the first semester, and during the second semester, the only twelve page edition in the history of the Black and Gold left the presses of Traverse City High School. This extra edition constituted the first alumni issue of the paper. Another school institution is our annual, the "Pines," edited by a staff of thirteen seniors. Lastly, the seniors of '40 have made plans to hold their class together. They have stepped forward and established another "first" by planning a class reunion. Under the leadership of William Lichty committees have already started to function and prepare for a class meeting in the fall. Today, the class of '40 challenges the juniors, the seniors of tomorrow, to keep up the good work, to improve the practices that have been started, and to originate newer, more progressive methods of making this, our high school, a happier place to study. HELEN GOODRICH Page one hundred fifteen In Our Future PART I. The Class Prophecy of 1940 We now bring you previews of the positions of the graduates of 1940, radiating from station T. C. H. S. and brought to you by Tillie Tootinhorn from Thompson- ville. Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen. My first bit of information for you this afternoon is that the Sleder Beauty Salon has now opened for business. Yesterday. as movie actress Glarice Glamour, alias Helen Goodrich, entered the Salon for her daily beautifying treatment, she noticed that several of her 1940 classmates were em- ployed. Barber, jack Hensel, came rushing to her side, leaving patron Don Novak completely covered with steaming towels. When jack finally remembered his sub- merged customer, he rushed back to remove the steaming towels from the smoldering remains of what once was a good customer. Pearl Freeman was busily manicuring Angeline Lewis's often photographed hands. She QAngelinej models for the new Flariglow nail polish, manufactured by Eileen Groesser. Her latest shade is "Hot Orange." Along the wall are seen many pictures of hair styles created by none other than that chic, well-dressed Pauline Graphos. Phyllis Eldred, famous for her hair dressing, uses her unique ability and transforms many celebrities into creations of heavenly beauty. At the local theater, owned by Dale Slocum and Perry Hayes, we see the play "Where the White Goes When the Snow Melts," starring those inseparable lovers Marion Davis and joe Bachorik. One of the reasons you all turn to the funny page of the newspaper first is to see the gay antics of that character, jump the Kangaroo, created by Lavonne Koenig. Mr. Tom Hoffman, Sneakret Service Agent of the U. S. Government, arrested Bob Hemming, notorious conspirator, for plotting against the Federal law which for- bids the planning of midnight dates. Jacqueline Garneau entertained the Spinsters' Club of the class of '40 at her home yesterday. Following an appropriate discussion on "Up-To-Date Methods of Proposing," the Ways and Means Committee discussed the spring drive of next year's campaign. After the delicious refreshments of soup and tea, the members sang "Sympathy" in chorus and returned to their respective homes. Sylvia Nyland has become world famous for her parachute jumps. Her latest exploit took place at the Herbert Airport. Managing the controls of the ship from which the death-defying Sylvia jumped is dare-devil Dunlop. Shooting the beams over the ether is Harry Groesser. Working in the hangar are Joe Rusch, Rex Hooper, and Charles Eldred as grease monkeys. Johnny Fisher has just inherited 510,000 from his great-uncle Oscar. With this money he has supplied Traverse High with over-stuffed lounges and in place of fire extinguishers, gum machines have been installed. The old wooden stairs have been replaced by escalators and the banisters by long swooping slides. The latter are kept slippery at all times. Muriel Packard and Doris Tompkins have made many contributions to the art of cookery. Their most famous is the eggless, egg-omelet. Mary Blanchard, after refusing several proposals by members of the Class of '40, has devoted her life to social work and is called by the poor, "The Madonna of the Slums." Some of our classmates grew so used to school life that they decided to carry on, through teaching. If we looked into the school, we'd see Anna Tafelsky teaching shorthand, Vergil Huddleston directing a typing class, Evelyn Hulka teaching chem- istry, and Betty Williams puzzling her students with problems of geometry. The animated cartoon of Angie the Angleworm now showing at all Brakel Theaters has made Margie Nink famous as a cartoonist. For her models she used Betty Putnam as Milly the Ant, Louise Perry as Greta Grasshopper, Bob Dewar as Luggie the Louse. The character of Ferdy the Fly is none other than Robert Schroeder. Last but not least, Angie the Angleworm is Betty Sbonek. Jack Heimforth has recently been appointed poet laureate of Hamtramck. Betty Kistler has had her giggle patented and is teaching it to others and making a handsome living thereby. Page one hundred sixteen Robert Schrader is playing the pipe organ at the village church in Grawn. After spending the best part of their lives in years of research and study of the complications and technicalities connected with such an occupation, Harry Bauman, Adolph Kroupa, and Bill McCall have started the commercial production of - pussy- willows! David Stiffler and Don Sanford are leisurely spending their winters in Florida, passing their judgment on the fair beauties of the South. In the Kentucky Derby this year we find in the line-up Breezy Brezinski riding Miss Reynolds' horse, Zip Geary is seated on Simple Simon, owned by R. Berg- strom. Rip Riley is riding the latest sensation of the nation, Butch, owned by Kathyrn Nordahl. I will now turn you over to Gertie Gossip from Grawn. PAT KEPHART PART II. The Class Prophecy of 1940 Hiyah Folks! Today I'm going to take you to Rennie Rendevous Resort, which now employs many of our former classmates. As we enter the lobby, Miss Robinette Cornell greets us in her position as hostess. As we registered at the desk, who should we see but J. F. Evans in the responsible position of clerk, and as he called for a bell hop, we saw two familiar faces spring up before us, lean and lanky Charles Klepac and that boisterous Seab Spencer. Remember Vernon Hoxie wanting to be an avi- ator? He chose the next best thing and is an elevator boy Q25 flights in allj in the Rennie Rendevous. When we entered our room, we noticed a short blond figure ad- miring hrself in the shining mirror which she had just cleaned-none other than Helen Murphy in her capacity as chambermaid. We also notice on the service slip that Leola Bohrer is acting as public stenographer. Bill Newton, noted Senator from Michigan, has at last given up his seige of filibustering to stop the bill for the discontinuance of the W. P. A. This would en- danger the positions of Harry Hibbard, jack Morgan, and Jerry Mikesell, his 1940 classmates. Bob Taylor is now employed in the Ghering Glass Factory as the head blower. Lars Halverson, in collaboration with Dick Leggett, Harold Aeschliman, and Robert Scamehorn, have successfully completed their life long ambition of raising pitless cherries. Harriet Stephens is now managing the Ankle Sox Girls' Baseball Team. Bat- teries are: No-hit Haywood and Goldie Greenwald, lst baseman, Grounder Gilbert, 2nd baseman, Liz ,Gartheg 3rd baseman, Muff Meyers. Fielders, Maggie Antony, Batty Bauer, and Butterfinger Beckwith. All vistories - no losses. Reason: Umpire Umlor. JoAnne Roosa is going to the Pelizzari sanitarium to recover from a nervous breakdown which she incurred after completing her latest novel, "The Private Life of a Basketball Hero." Director Bob Graham- of the Beethoven Sympathy Orchestra has been giving a series of concerts at Dill's Corners. With him are Bob Smith, Arland Sanborn, and Bob Ransom. Charles Brown has just returned from selling fur coats to the natives of the Fiji Islands and is now planning a trip to the North Pole to sell Sarongs to the Eskimos, who have been taught the new interpretative jungle dance by Marie Mora- vec. George Panter and Darwin Dunn have contributed to the scientific world with their newly completed research on the psycho-analysis of a cootie, and Bruce Wangen and Warren Wfychoff have done their duty to the world by completing their formula for Weight-Waning pills. Little did we think while in High School that we would be lulled to sleep by duclet tones of our cheerful classmate, jack Merrill, or that he would continue his work after graduation and extend the scope of his soothing, sleep producing voice to the realms of all childhood. He is working at present in a nursery school established by Myron Petroske, who always did love the little dears fBless their-heartsj. Page one hundred seventeen Raymond Axtell is now the Instructor of "Catch, marbles, and mumble pegs" in good old Traverse High. Odessa Mlujeck and Marian Howell are now broadcasting over station I O U as Sarah and Susie, the Sob Sisters. We have also just received a letter telling us that Paul Gardner has become a Doctor and is running a sanitorium for persons suffering from egomania. Our next commentator this afternoon is Annabelle Appleton from Acme. Go ahead Acme. VIRGINIA THORPE PART III. The Class Prophecy of 1940 Hello, Everyone.

Marge Beam and Marie Berry run the Select Haven of Rest for Spinsters out in the outskirts of Walton Junction. Victoria Podoba is successfuly sawing her way through the Hour of Charm. As I waft the sweet aroma of dandelions furnished by the Fall and Fouch Flower Shoppe, it reminds me of the old days as I gathered dandelions for the Senior Frolic. If you're looking for entertainment, you might go over to Orville Corpe's popu- lar dance hall on Sinker Island. The drawing interest there is the dance marathon which has existed for last 2 years. The couples remaining on the Hoor are: Helen Babcock and Louis LaFranierg Lorane Burdette and Ben Boyle, Marion Lewis and Eddy Irish. jim Hughes has one of those "nice jobs if you can get 'em."

S. and to the year of 1940. BETTY KISTLER Page one hundred mnetun The President Speaks We, the class of 1940, have assembled for the last time as a unit of this institu- tion of learning. It is here that we have made many friends and acquaintances which as time progresses we shall cherish evermore. As your president, I was privileged to function in many class activities and to BCI as your spokesman and representative upon various occasions. In this capacity I have always tried my best to encourage cooperation and to arbitrate for the best interests of the class as a whole. Every class has its accomplishments and successes, and every class should be proud of the improvement or advances of which it can boast. However, it is without exalted ego that we are hereby leaving a written record of our accomplishments. During the last year, the seniors added to the social functions of the school by sponsoring dances, a senior frolic, and by producing a successful senior play. An- other outstanding feature was the debating team that rose to a high place in inter- school debating throughout the state. To add to our cholastic achievements, we were honored to have 30 of our members elected to the National Honor Society. In the field of sports, we find that we have had a successful football season com- bined with outstanding results on the greensward and cinder track. Never in the history of this ins ' tion'has there been a basketball team pro- duced which has attained or acquiredtgejlk and honor that the team, led by the senior members of Traverse City High School, attained this year. This fact alone gives the senior class something to be extremely proud of. But please do not misunderstan hese facts we have presented are not meant to enthrone us but rather to be a survey of what has been accomplished by our class as a whole. It is our fondest hope and desire that the members of our class will not slacken in their efforts to succeed ahd will find triumphant achievements in the social and economical whirl of the world. To the class of '41 we offer our apology if in any manner we have belittled your efforts to succeed by describing and enumerating our accomplishments. We wish rather that you may, by visualizing our mistakes, make corresponding improvements in any adventure you may undertake. In order to stimulate within your ranks a de- sire for better accomplishments, we, the class of '40 extend to you a challenge to exceed our record of fulfillments by undertaking adventures of your own design and to surpass if you may the standards and ideals we have established in scholastics, social activities, and student government. Will the president of the Junior Class please step forward. President Lichty, I relinquish to you, the President of the class of '41, the senior gavel, the symbol of authority. I wish to remind you of the high standards of the class of '41. The graduating Senior Class extend to you, the incoming seniors, the wishes for the best of success and smooth sailing. GEORGE PANTER Page one hundred twenty If I Could Have My Wish The graduating class of Traverse City High School for 1940 is about to go out into the world. Some will continue their education in higher schools of learning, some will seek employment in the business world. But for all of us there are hard- ships to be faced, problems and decisions to be met, ideals to be upheld, and dis- couragements to be overcome. We have been more fortunate than we now realize to have obtained a free edu- cation in line schools under the expert direction of well trained teachers. They have attempted to teach us to appreciate the fine things in life and have tried to prepare us to take our places in life as citizens of a democratic nation. We have received mental and physical guidance from them. A modern school, libraries, well equipped gymnasiums, and fine laboratories have been put at our disposal. For all these oppor- tunities we thank our parents and teachers. lf I could have my wish, each member of this class of 1940 would take these things which he has learned with him through life to help him toward his goal of success and happiness, and he would come to appreciate all that has been done for him. If I could have my wish, we would all strive for a high goal, and if we reached that, strive for an even higher one. It was Robert Louis Stevenson who said in his poem, "Eldorado": "To travel hopefully is better than to arrive, and the true success is to labor." The tall and stately pines have an inspiring message for all who care to listen. The pine has a lowly start in life. At first it is such an insignificant tree in this world of tall trees, much the same as we are as we go out to face this world of ours for the first time. But a mighty tree develops, always growing, always striving to stretch its lofty limbs higher and higher toward the heavens. If I could have my wish, we would all heed this message of the pines. We would not let other things lead us astray from our path toward success but would stand as firmly as the pine to our ideals. The pine is a place of refuge from the hot sun and the chilling rain. We can always depend upon it to be there when such a refuge is needed. If I could have my wish, each one of us would help those in need, be it just a comforting word or a mighty sacrifice. If I could have my wish, we would all be successful and undiscouraged in any- thing we should undertake. The law of averages, however, says that not everyone can achieve success, but if I could have my wish, each one of us could be triumphant even if in a small way, and everyone would always remember that it is better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all. If I could have my wish, we would always be happy. We would always face the trials of life with a smiling face and spread cheer wherever we would go. If I could have my wish, in years to follow, each one of us would be pointed to with pride, and we would hear people say, "He is a happy man for he has lived hope- fully, uprightly, helpfully, and courageously."

Page one hundred twenty-three Acknowledgments Upon completion of this book, the annual board wish to extend their appreci- ation to the many students and teachers who contributed directly and indirectly to the production of the annual. Many worked comparatively unknown, and yet their contributions are most important in making the 1940 "Pines" a first-class annual. Without the aid of Mr. Chapman, the annual would be an impossibility. It is difficult to express our sincere appreciation for the long hours and valuable informa- tion that Mr. Chapman gave us. He was always on hand to do every and any kind of a task. He gave us much of his time and received hardly a word of thanks. He knew what had to be done and oft-times straightened matters when we mixed-up everything. It is enough to say that he was behind the wheel, steering us along, keep- ing us out of trouble, and finally bringing us through with a completed annual. Another person who gave us whole-hearted cooperation and proved to be indis- pensable is Ford Cary. He gave his time and material so that we might have pictures of the underclassmen. Whenever a picture was needed in a hurry fand that was most of the timej, he could be depended on to produce the right thing. His excellent photography has been most important in making the "Pines" valuable. The board is deeply indebted to Mr. Loomis for his assistance in the sports divi- sion. W'hen a picture was needed, it was our superintendent who could be depended upon to get it. We also wish to thank him for his message to the class of '40. To all the teachers and students who cooperated in the trials of picture taking, to those seniors who willingly had their annual pictures retaken, to the underclass- men who willingly responded to "extra-sessions" with the photographer, and to Evelyn Dahlquist who willingly endured the trials of selling underclassmen pictures, we extend our appreciation. To the many students who pitched in and helped with the typing during the last days before the dead line, to Jackson Bensley who helped with the photographic work of the sports department, to the many teachers who understood why we didn't have our lessons during those last few days and allowed us to make up our work, to students and teachers who helped write copy, to seniors who rushed to get their class day material ready before the dead-line, and to our parents who endured with us to the very end, we, the annual board, do sincerely thank. Last of all, but not the least, we extend our grateful appreciation to our printers and engravers, The White Printing Company of Grand Rapids and the Record-Eagle Engraving Company of Traverse City. Much of the real beauty of this book may be credited to the conscientiousness of our printers, engravers, and cover manufacturers. Page une hundred twenty-four ALUMNI SOCIETY 1940 Class Reunion The class of 1940 did not end its days as a group when each of its 189 members received diplomas on the night of graduation, for this class, the largest to graduate in the history of the school, will assemble again in the halls of old Central high school. Not just once, but many times we hope to gather with our classmates and renew our acquaintances with the people with whom we spent five of the best years of our lives during our high school days. The first reunion of the class of 1940 will take place at the high school on Thurs- day, December 27. A general class meeting will be called in the afternoon at which everyone will have a chance to greet his fellow members. Entertainment will also be included on the afternoon's session. The evening's program will be opened with a large banquet in the cafeteria, which will be followed by a welcome from the class president, and a short address by a guest speaker. Class officers will also be elected at this time to serve until the next class reunion. At the conclusion of the banquet, an informal dance will be held in the gym where all of the class members will enjoy themselves as they once did at the all-school parties which were so popular during their years in senior high. A great deal of preparation is required for an event of this kind, for which detailed plans were drawn and six competent committees headed by some of the most able leaders of the class were selected to make all of the necessary arrangements. These committees began their work before school was dismissed in the spring and the reunion had progressed from a "good idea" to concrete shape by the end of May. One of the biggest jobs of the reunion will be the correspondence, which will be handled by a committee of twelve headed by Don Sanford and Pauline Graphos, class secretary. The committee is as follows: Robinette Cornell, Joyce Johnson, Gene Kitchen, Joan Shaw, Arland Sanborn, Algot Wickstrand, Louis La Franier, Ben Boyle, Margaret Antony, Vera Fouch, Charles Brown. All arrangements for the general schedule and banquet program will be made by the program committee in charge of Helen Goodrich and Grace Gilbert. Others who will help are Betty Law, Phyllis Bauer, Margy Meam, Bob Dewar, Jack Gillett, Phyllis Eldred, Dick Stowe, Doris Tompkins, Dot Crawford, and Louise Gee. George Panter will contract the banquet and handle seating and place cards. He will be assisted by Marcella Denny, Bob Smith, Mac Cox, Bruce Wangen, and Warren Wfycholf. The dance after the banquet will be in charge of Les McCain, with Juliana Bradford, Ed Irish, Garneau, Jerry Mikesell, Joanne Roosa, and Virginia Wahl making up the committee. They will hire the orchestra and decorate the gym. The problem of financing this project will be handled by Bill Milliken, assisted by treasurer Bob Taylor, and Marion Davis, Helen Haywood, Dorothy Oakes, Bill Newton, and Edgar Zobel. The slate for new officers will be prepared by a committee headed by David Stiffler. Others who will help in preparing a list of suitable candidates for the elec- tions are Jack Heimforth, Jeanne MacIntosh, and Pat Kephart. fv .
