It is in loving memory of our friend and companion, Elva Wagner, that we write this book. Not long ago, or so it seems, we began life together as little children. Elva was always quiet, always gentle: she was made of something delicately charming, a lovable being. She was a sincere friend to us through the years. While she was with us, she added a great deal to our happiness, indeed she provided a large measure of happiness to the general scheme of pleasant living. She developed into beautiful girlhood: and now has passed on. We do feel her presence still: for, although sudden, her passing was like the passing of a flower, the fragrance and beauty of which lingers in our memories. ". . . and so thy thoughts, when thou art gone Love itself shall slumber on." We seniors wish to extend our deepest svmpathy to Elva's parents and to her family in this, their sorrow. We know what a burden her loss must be for them to bear. This brief word may serve to comfort those who knew her, for it is undoubtedly cr truism that "the shortest life is long enough if it lead to a better." Oh, to live beautifully for my brief hour Bravely stemming the wind and the beating rain Within me some strong inner force as bright Yielding some fragrance down the paths I know As a flower goes, its petals seeking the ground But leaving behind some gold seed lightly thinned Grace Noll Crowell CONSCRIPTS OF THE DREAM Give thanks, O heart, for the high souls That point us to the deathless goals- For all the courage of their cry That echoes down from sky to sky: Thanksgiving for the armed seers And heroes called to mortal years- Souls that have built our faith in man, And lit the ages as they ran. . . . - . . Give thanks for heroes that have stirred Earth with the wonder of a word. But all thanksgiving for the breed Who have bent destiny with deed- Souls of the high heroic birth, Souls sent to poise the shaken Earth, And then called back to God again, To make Heaven possible for men. Edwin Markham MISS M. M. KINNAIRD IN DEDICATION On our journey through life we meet many people, most of whom we can divide into thre f d e groups-those we like on sight, those we never learn to car , ' e or an those who impress us more and more as we learn to know them better Of the latter group is one to wh l - om we pay oving tribute, Miss Minnie Kinnaird. Quiet, reserved, self-effacing, she came to us thirteen years ago, a stranger: but before long we were to know her as a loyal friend and adviser. Her frankness and ke h ' ' ' ' W en umor, at first a 11tt1e surpnsing gradually grew on us. e learned to depend on her, and to respect her judgment far above our own. She taught from many text-books, but she practiced the lessons from the Book of Books-kindness, gentleness, meekness, long-suffering, and that great- est of all commandments: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Though we deeply mourn the passing of one who loved us, and whom we loved, we are humbly grateful to the Good Giver for the divine privilege of having her with us for so long: and we are sincerely glad to know that she is now in a new Land without suffering, of which she had more than her share. f thln her dying words, "I have established my citizenship " we hear the echo o e Apostle Paul's parting words, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."

BOARD OF EDUCATION TRUSTEES As another year, and the "zero hour" ap- proaches, the Seniors are thrilled with happiness as they cross the threshold to receive their diplomas from the hand of Dr. C. A. Lund, Presi- dent of the Board of Education. Few ot them are ready to admit truthfully that the glory ot this hour is greatly due to this very Board oi Education from whom they receive their reward. Board oi Education? Very few of our students even know there is such an organization. Why? Because it is not talked about in the school every day. Yet the Board is really at work planning to overcome the problems of our school so that we might have a school of and for our school-mates. It is this Board of Education that is studying, just as we are, for the interest of all the students. They are the men behind the scenes. As the people prepare the stage for the actors, so does the Board of Education set up the stage tor our education. It is with their final touch that every- thing is completed in due time for this ever important purpose. And they even tell us when we can have a vacation! tIsn't that just too sweet of them?l They hire the Superintendent: they give out various instructions which are to be carried out. They are the final authority for all activities ot the schools. We, the Senior Class of 1938, wish to thank the faculty and the Board of Education for every- thing they have made possible for us and bid goodby with the deepest sincerity. "The Senior Class of l938." SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Responsibility rests in the hands of our Super- intendent of Schools, Mr. William R. Booker. Mr. Booker was born in Sullivan, Indiana. He attended school in another city and upon graduating from high school, attended the University of Indiana. While attending the University, he taught school and received his A.B. degree in 1916. Later, in the year 1926, he received his master's degree. Mr. Booker has been a teacher in Michigan schools for 18 years. He was also a member of the faculty at Kalamazoo College. Before his present position, he was Superintendent of Schools at Greenville, Michigan. Mr. Booker's ideas and ideals on education are all summed up in his statement, "The edu- cation ol our boys and girls is a function of the State and the Nation. Every child is entitled to an education. 'Education is the eternal debt of adults to youth.' " Under Mr. Booker's supervision much work is achieved, all ior one purpose: to educate. It is Mr. Booker who is called upon when there are knotty problems to solve, and he is very adept at solving them. The beneficial work this man has accomplished is greatly appreciated by all who have ever come in contact with him. Mrs. Mikol Miss Johnson Miss Cramer MAIN OFFICE OF BOARD OF EDUCATION As we peek in at the main office of the Board of Education located in the Central Junior High School building at the corner of Peck Street and Sherman Boulevard. we find the ever alert employes, Mrs. Mikol. Miss Bessie Cramer. and Miss Gertrude Johnson. Mrs. Mikol was born in Muskegon. Michigan. She was graduated from Muskegon Heights High school in 1930. She is now employed in the office as Child Accounting Clerk. Her work includes the annual school census, records, and marks of all students who have ever attended school. She also is an assistant in the book store. Mrs. Mikol is very fond ol shopping: in fact she spends a great deal of her time doing so. She enjoys traveling to distant places. At pres- ent she is taking camera shots of interesting pictures for a collection for the library. In her spare time she plays the newest game craze. "Badminton," Miss Bessie Cramer was born in Muskegon. Michigan, was graduated from Muskegon High School in 1919, and is now employed as book- keeper in the office. Her work is that of taking care of the teachers' payroll, statistical reports, and bills for payment with the necessary approv- al. Miss Cramer enjoys hiking and a great deal of her spare time is spent in sewing fancy work. She is also fond of "Badminton" Miss Gertrude Iohnson was born in Muskegon, Michigan. She attended Muskegon Heights High School and was graduated with the class of 1924. She is now employed as secretary to Mr. W. R. Booker, Superintendent of Schools. Her work includes all correspondence which has been received or sent, orders for supplies, taking the minutes of the Board of Education meetings, and granting permits for school buildings. Miss John- son also spends a great deal of her time playing "Badminton," shopping. and traveling. Miss Iohnson is also working on an amateur photogra- phy collection for the library. 14 llc... OUR PRINCIPAL Mr. Bolt's career has been one ot continuous school work, as student, teacher, and principal. He attended Grand Haven schools for twelve years, and upon graduation, entered the Uni- versity of Michigan. During the summers he has continued his work at Ann Arbor and at the University of Wisconsin. At the close of the summer session oi August, 1928, he was awarded a Master's Degree in Economics by the University of Michigan. His first teaching experience was at Houghton in the Upper Peninsula, in mathe- matics and science. After one year, he became principal of the high school at Bismarck, North 15 Dakota. Mr. Bolt came to Muskegon Heights High School in the tall oi 1921. He enjoys high school and college athletic contests and much prefers them to the profes- sional games. He also likes to read biography, travel, and books on economic problems. We all respect Mr. Bolt as a principal and an adviser. He helps us when we seek his advice and it is his aim to give every student a fair chance while at school. His is the task ol assisting us each year to begin life in this world, and to succeed in it. MR. M. A VERSATILE It is Mr. Rudd's duty to check attendance every day, teach commercial law, take charge of study hall at certain hours, and to be on hall duty in the afternoon. Whenever Mr. Bolt, prin- cipal, is called out of town to a meeting, Mr. Rudd has charge of the principaI's duties. ln other words. Mr. Rudd is "a versatile young man." To prove that, may we add that when he came to Muskegon Heights High School to teach. in 1921. he was given the chemistry and physics assignment. He later was made assistant principal, until the depression came along. At that time many changes were made in school E. RUDD YOUNG MAN organization. In addition to his regular duties. Mr. Rudd has served as senior class adviser since the had a difficult time remembering back that farll about 1925 or 1926. He is a director oi the Michigan Education Association. Born in West Chicago, Illinois, in 1901 lat last we know his age!J, he later attended West Chicago High School and the University of Illinois. He also attended the University of Chicago. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in the field of education, from the Uni- versity of Illinois. His hobbies are billiards. fishing. amateur radio. He does those things well, too. Miss vmcmm Mlxsn A BUSY SECRETARY "HEIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL!" Yes, you are right. It is the pleasant voice of Miss Virginia Mixer, ready for action. Miss Mixer has been employed in the office at High School for the past two years. Her work includes typewriting, selling school supplies, writing receipts, book- keeping, handing out locker keys and answering a thousand and one oi our silly questions of where, when, and why. Born in Muskegon Heights. Virginia attended Muskegon Heights High School, and was gradu- ated in 1933. She enjoys outdoor sports and travel. She is very fond of shopping: in fact. it the truth were known, she spends a great deal of her time in the well-known fashion shops. She does not like to be interviewed lof course, we don't mind that because few people enjoy it, eitherll. yet she is always willing to answer questions. She is a friendly, cheerful helper. shown above, one may surmise are manifold. If it is not a some paper or pencils, then it which commands her attention. of her work is included in the In the picture that her duties student wanting is the telephone Then, too, much secretarial duties attendant upon Mr. Bolt's office. It is her job to see that all school correspondence from the office is properly written and mailed. How does she do it? Ask her and find out. 16 MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT Whether or not school "keeps." they keep house MR. PHILLIP DOHERTY, who at the moment the above picture was taken was industriously polishing the top ol a desk, has been an em- ploye of the Muskegon Heights Schools for the past 30 years or more. In general, he is in charge ol the lirst iloor maintenance work and does a thorough job ot seeing that floors, walls, and desks are kept spic and span every day of the week. His ancestors came from Ireland in Indian days, perhaps that accounts for the twinkle in his eye. tShou1d we say, also, the thinness of his hair?l "Phil" is a friend to all who come his way and, il you really care for funny stories, just start him going! MRS. CAROLINE CHRISTIANSEN was born in Spring Lake, Michigan, in 1885. She attended Muskegon schools. Mrs. Christiansen has three daughters and two sons, one ol whom CWalterl was a star end on our football team. One son and one daughter were graduated from our high school. She has lived in this vicinity lor the past 30 years, and has worked for the Board of Education ol Muskegon Heights High School since 1928, as cook and "clean-up" lor the cafeteria and girls' rest rooms. Always cheeriul, Mrs. Christiansen says she is most lond ol movies and lootball games: says she used to dance. MR. ALBERT CRUSE, second lloor custodian, is shown here in a characteristic pose. He is diligently cleaning the lloor of the second lloor corridor, the surface ol which, more likely than not, was covered with dirt and littered with papers during the day. He goes about his work systematically: for him the right way is the only way to do it. He has two daughters, both graduates ol Muskegon Heights High School. He has lived in this city since 1916. What does he like to talk about? Everything that's worth while, but always baseball, music. or art. His exper- ience has been broad in the line ol manual arts. WHO IS HE? Don't you know? Why, it's Bill, our engineer. Most of you students never see much of him because he works down in the basement . . . 'way down below . . . with the boilers and the coal shovels and the furnace. When we do catch a glimpse ol him he cer- tainly isn't dressed in his "Sunday-go-to-meetin' " clothes, and his lace! Well, it could stand a good washing! In the picture shown above, Bill is demonstrating the way in which he keeps us warm through all those cold winter days. In the spring he is kindly requested to "1ay oft" and "go cut the grass." He does both things well. Bill Phillips built Phillips Field. PQL-nf, V BUILDING A TEMPLE A builder builded a temple, He wroughtbit with grace and skill Pillars and groins and arches l All fashioned to work his will. Men said as they saw its beauty. "It shall never know decay. Great is thy skill, O builder: Thy fame shall endure for aye." A teacher builded a temple With loving and infinite care, Planning each arch with patience, Laying each stone with prayer. None praised her unceasing efforts None knew of her wonderous plan For the temple the teacher builded Was unseen by the eyes of man. Gone is the builder's temple, Crumbled into the dust: Low lies each stately pillar, Food for consuming rust. But the temple the teacher builded Will last while the ages roll, For that beautiful unseen temple Is a child's immortal soul. tFrom the Iournal of the National Education Association? 18 LINDA I-I.

As graduates of a high school, we can whole-heartedly support this state- ment of William Shakespeare. With- out peace, and with war, perhaps we might not have attended even high school,-much less graduated. We can count ourselves lucky indeed that we live in a country which worships the God of Love instead of the God of War. It is readily agreed that peace is needed badly, and wanted badly by practically all of the people of the world. It is only a very small minority of war-minded omnipo.ents who want war for personal reasons more than they want peace. The majority of peo- ple today do not realize the indescrib- able horrors of war or they would never for a minute allow their country to enter one. Nothing useful is ever accomplished by war except prepara- tion for another one. For example: witness the huge war machines of today, direct outgrowths of "the war to end wars." No one ever heard of any useful inventions or discoveries that were uncovered in wartime. Peace. and peace alone, fosters creative and good thinking and the opportunities for advancement such as those to which we graduates of today look forward. What has all this talk of war and peace to do with us? Iust this. We, the graduates of 1938, are going forth into a world that has clouds of war on the horizon. Not only must we find our position in life but we must face the fact that war as a reality is altogether too close. VVe, as graduates, cannot dictate that there shall be peace, as much as we would like to do so. We cannot change, we cannot rebuild the policies of the world in a few, short years. But as future citizens of this country we can work toward a universal peace. The young people of today are the warriors, or the citizens, of tomorrow! We can have our choice: to be cannon- fodder or useful, happy citizens and neighbors. The government of this country is run by the people and will do as the people desire. So long as the people of America are peace- minded, peace will be our lot. IEAN DORIS ANDERSON, Commercial: "No legacy is so rich as honesty."

SHADOWS Betty McGregor What is life but a shadow. A nightmare, or passing dream? How low are man's most noble thoughts! - How worthless his best planned schemes! How weak is man in his greatest strength! How narrow the broadest mind! l-low selfish is the most generous heart Beside that of the One divine! Fame lasts for but a moment: Wealth, too, is quickly gone: Man soon is buried, forgotten, But God's plan lingers on. PEACE FOR YOUTH Julia Opalek What is this peace you talk about? It appears such a beautiful thing. A grave necessity kept so remote. It has nothing on which to climb. Youth delights in the adventures of war It sees not the human side. But eager to go when called for, Blindly falls into stride. Youth, helpless in such a deal. Finds its fate a dreadful one. The wounds become all too real. When all is said and done. The trials of youth are many, Can't you offer a suggestion? Set us rightly on our way, We are the future generation. CLASS HISTORY Dear Diary, Because we're the other classes September 25, 1934 freshmen, we had to wait till elected their officers before we could elect ours. Today we had our meeting May Geisler as our president. and elected Lily Other officers were lack Leaf, Leslie Batchelder, Inez Spahr. John Kreuger. Our advisers are Miss Reid and Mr. Rakestraw. Dear Diary, February 17, 1935 This evening we had the pleasure of enter- taining the Sophomores with a party. It was a gala affair and my first school party. The Sopho- mores are to return the party with one later in the year. Dear Diary, May 22, 1935 Tonight we gave an all school dance. It was the Spring Frolic with music by Doc Dion's orchestra. The gym was decorated in beautiful spring colors. It was very lovely. Dear Diary, September 17, 1935 Well, here I am back in school again. We held our class meeting today and elected our officers for the year. This time we elected lack Turner president of the class. Other officers are Hall Ketchum, Iune Currey, Iohn Krueger. and Iohn Israel. Our advisers are Mr. Rakestraw, and Mr. Griffin. Dear Diary. December 21, 1935 Tonight we present the "Reindeer Ramble," the last dance before Christmas vacation. We hope to have a good crowd. I think Doc Dion's orchestra is going to play. Well, I have to get ready, l wouldn't miss this for anything in the world. Dear Diary, September 15, 1936 Gee, vacation went fast, but I'm glad to be back in school. Today we elected lack Leaf president of the 'Junior class. Hall Ketchum, Doris Danford, Robert Wortelboer, and Mike Dendrino fill the other offices.

We had quite a large crowd, although it wasn't as large as our evening dance. Dear Diary, May 26, 1937 I've had another strenuous day today. We felt so badly because we couldn't give the seniors a boat ride before they graduated that the faculty told us to do anything we wanted to. We had an all day affair out at Pioneer Park. Picnic supper. swimming, baseball, tennis, and dancing in the evening. I had a wonderful time. Dear Diary, March 4, 1937 Tonight the Iunior class is going to present Zanwell's stage hit, "The Melting Pot." I hope and believe it will be a success. Miss Royse was the director and she and the cast spend many hours on the play. Dear Diary, September 15, 1937 Gee, now I'm a senior already! We held our meeting today and elected Hall Ketchum presi- dent. Inez Spahr. lack Leaf, John Thomas, Don Phelps are the other officers. Our advisers are Mr. Peterman, and Mr. Rudd.

May 20, 1938 Tonight was the Senior Play, "Lightnin'." It was a smash hit! The auditorium was packed. and the cast had them "rolling in the aisles." It certainly went over with a bang!

Victory! The word calls to our minds pictures of two forces struggling to gain reward. Perhaps there are two countries fighting one another for some dis- puted territory: perhaps two athletic teams struggling for supremacy tin a game of footballl: perhaps, as in our case, it has been a battle between ourselves and knowledge. We are satisfied that after four years we have come to a peaceful settlement and have now finished one phase of our lives-high school education. We realize the truth in this statement- "Peace hath her victories no less renowned than war." When we entered high school. we found our campaign already mapped out. The teachers were our generals: we, the soldiers. They have worked patiently and earnestly to train our minds to meet any situation on the battlefield of life. After graduation we find ourselves ready to make use of these weapons: knowledge, de- termination, stability, and courage. Some will become captains and sergeants. leaders in the fields they enter. All will be real American citizens, better fitted because of their education. However. the peace which we feel now may be short-lived. As we leave high school to take our places in the world we find that all is not calm and peaceful. When we seniors hear and read of the chaotic conditions in other countries. we are filled with an overwhelming desire to keep our beloved America above it all. How can we help? With our strongest asset,-educa- tion: for education is any peaceful nation's strongest defense, and the education of the nation's youth is the first step in maintaining peace. Courses in history, science, and arithmetic cer- tainly help us, but only when they are accom- panied by a spirit of democracy and fraternity, both of which have always prevailed in our public school systems. America is a melting pot of all races. All types of people mingle and become acquainted with one another in our school systems, eliminating the danger of mis- understanding. In some countries of Europe families exchange children for several weeks of the year so that the youth of one nation may become acquainted with the customs and language of another country. This promotes peace and friendship. These countries know that ignorance breeds in- tolerance, and intolerance breeds war. On the other hand, understanding leads to friendship and love. and eliminates war. As seniors, we recognize fully the tremendous influence our instructors have made on our lives. We can only be deeply appreciative, but we hope that the way we conduct our lives will prove to our teachers and parents that they were successful in training another small part of the great army of peace-loving American citizens. fxf' SALUTATORY ADDRESS Iohn Thomas Parents, teachers, fellow-students, and friends, we, the graduating class of nineteen hundred thirty-eight, welcome you to our class day pro- gram. Even with the happiness and excitement that accompanies graduation there is a feeling of deep regret at the thought of leaving our friends of Muskegon Heights High School. At this tuming point in our lives we look back upon our happy years spent here and wish to thank everyone who has aided us in attaining the tirst rung on the ladder of success. Looking over this world in which we are about to take our places as men and women, we do not lind a world waiting with open arms: in- stead we find a world whose surface is iilled with wars, dictators, and depressions. We know that we cannot change the status oi the earth. but we do know that each of us has a place and a job to do in this world. We understand what an important part the people as a whole have in world alfairs and how necessary it is that they be educated. By "educated" we do not mean being sent to school to leam how to carry a gun on one's shoulder or how to become cannon fodder: we mean being sent to a school in an educational system such as we have in the United States, and in our own Muskegon Heights.-a system in which the people are taught how to live happily, peaceably. and to run their own government. We graduates are tortunate to have received our education under such a system and in such a nation. a nation which is the freest and most envied country in the world. What makes a nation such as ours possible? Is it not the type ol citizen, the people themselves? And what things make our type of citizenry possible? Are they not our educational system. our churches, our homes? And it our nation were at war. would our educational system, our churches, our homes, be as they are now? I should say not! War is the enemy oi education and everything creative. It destroys everything that education builds up. War must be done away with, and everlasting peace put in its place. Peace is a small word but it means such a great deal- contented homes, happy times, good schools. Then is it not important that everyone should do his part, no matter how small? ' But how much education do we need? Is a high school education sufficient in order to gain success in this world? A few years ago the answer would have been, "Yes": but today one teels that additional knowledge is necessary because oi the ever-increasing competition. Where one receives this education is not important, but the fact that it must be obtained is the important thing. Each member ot our class is about to go his own way, to fight his own battles, win or lose. Some will go to college, others will go to work, still others will remain at home: no matter what we do or where we go we are "on our own." We have been given a start: from now on it is up to us! At this time. on behalf oi the members ot the class ol thirty-eight, I wish to extend to Muske- gon Heights High School best wishes for greater success. both on the athletic field and in scholastic activities. I wish to thank again everyone who has aided our class in any way. I salute and say farewell to Muskegon Heights High School.

Advisers are Miss Margrct VanRaa1te and Mr. Oscar Iohnson. The two dances presented by the Iuniors were very successful affairs. The "Big Apple Swing," was a success as a result ot the good manage- ment of the general chairman. Marcella Young. The "Iunior Prom" was given on May 13. On February 4 the Iuniors presented the "Hoosier Schoolmasterf' Richard George and Stephie Prudich played the leads.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS The oiticers chosen by the Freshman class of 1937 were William Parmelee as president, Don Hendricks as vice-president, Sherwood Wagner as secretary. Alice Keeier as treasurer, and Stanley Filonow as sergeant-at-arms. Although this is its tirst year in this school. the members of the class have proved themselves very active, both in "academics" and athletics. In the line of sports Don Hendricks, Prank Niemczak, and William Wiers were outstanding. Both played on the second football team. 54 Both boys and girls participated in basketball. The Captain of the Freshman girls intramural team was Patricia Kennedy. The boys that made Mr. Kruizenga's second team were: John Mina- rovic, William Wiers, Sam Valuck, and Eugene Farkas. The girls also entered the intramural volley-ball toumament with Betty Erickson as their captain.

Members ol the Freshman Class are eligible to enter the declamation contest. Those to par- ticipate this year in the elimination contest were Charles Cooper, Alice Keefer, and Lois Geisler. Those to remain in the finals were Alice Keefer and Lois Geisler. On April 22, 1938, the "Spring Swing" was given by the class, with decorations of green and white which gave a spring setting. Morley Bingham and his orchestra played. This dance. with William Wiers as General Chairman and with line supporting committees, climaxed a suc- cessful school year for the Freshmen. With this line record to their credit in their freshman year this class should certainly make a fine record for itself when all those at Central ic-in with them to make the Sophomore Class oi '39. L.. Ph 0150-gravure and Snapshots l - 4 . F 6 "' ry lj 1 'Y ,K if . Vinyl' BAND . . . and the band played on." SAM HORNAK is the boy whom you have all seen, at one time or another during the past two years, prancing ahead of our neatly uniformed band. Attired in a uniform very smartly dec- orated with gold braid, he twirled a glittering baton. Under Sam's able direction our band appeared at all of the football games which were played at home and also at our team's first night game at Lansing Eastern. Besides his work as drum-major, Sam also took part in the activities ol the last growing boys' glee club and the mixed chorus. "A very versatile man is Sam!" THE DRUM is one oi the most primitive ol instruments. Its rhythmic beat early found its way into the hearts of savages: its sinister mes- sage has put dread into the hearts of jungle travelers: it has guided feet in dance and stirred them to battle march. It now forms an important section of the band. carrying the rhythm heat of the entire band while marching or playing con- cert music. This picture contains the snare drum section. Other percussion instruments are bass drums and pair ol tympani. At the beginning oi the year this entire section oi the band was rather inexperienced but has shown rapid improvement. OUR BAND had the unusual opportunity this year oi broadcasting over radio station WKBZ. Programs were presented each Wednesday after- noon tor several weeks and announced by lack Leaf, a senior, The Winter Concert on December 13 opened the music season at M.H.H.S. One ot the most popular numbers presented in the Spring Concert, April 26, was Churchill's "Heigh- ho," from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." For the first time, a special Band Concert was successfully given on May 24. The band also played an important part in the West Shore Music Festival. UNUSUALLY LARGE is the M.H.H.S. band this year. There are about 80 members and they occupy the entire auditorium stage. Due to the wonderful work done by Mr. Schulze, our band is now rated among the best in Western Michigan. The largest single section is the trumpet and comet group, made up entirely ot underclassmen. This section will be stronger for next year's band because they are striving tor better tone and rhythm. Better instrumentation has been made possible. due to purchase of new instruments by the Board of Education, thus giving the band better balance, depth, and tone quality. 58 ORCHESTRA Practice is one means of achievement MR. A. M. COURTRIGHT. director of the high school orchestra, has charge not only of the directing of our orchestra but also instructs the members of the grade school orchestras as well. His work with these groups includes the trans- posing and copying of many difficult selections to aid the student in the reading of them. Me- chanical drawing classes also number among his many duties. With these facts in mind, we will appreciate more the great talents which this quiet person is so shy about pointing out, and to him we express thanks for the development of our orchestra. TOM BEGLEY. pictured above in the act of rendering some very difficult selection, is one of the members who help to make up the string section of our orchestra which this year num- bered about thirty-three. This section consisted of about twenty-two violins, three cellos, five violas, and two basses. There are only four of the forty-five members graduating this year, so the group next year should make a very good showing among the other orchestras of its size in this district. In the wood-wind section there are three members: the brasses include six: the percussions, two. t THE ORCHESTRA during the last few years has broken away from the old precedent of playing only classical selections and has worked up several popular semi-classic numbers. Among those were the late George Gershwin's "Of Thee I Sing," the ever popular "Showboat" by Ierome Kern, and Rudolf Friml's "Student Prince." Along with these the group has also worked on such well known classics as the first move- ment of Shubert's "Unfinished Symphony," Saint Sains' "Bacchavale" from "Samson and Delila," Mozart's "Minuet" from the G Minor Symphony. THE ORCHESTRA this year was the largest ever organized in the history of the school. lt had forty-five members of which forty-one are expected to be in it again in the fall. The group made many appearances during the year. Out- standing among them were the fall and spring concerts: the junior and senior plays: the May Festival: several of the assemblies: the Muske- gon Iunior College Spring play: and the year will be closed with their playing at Commence- ment and the Baccalaureate services for the Seniors. With these appearances completed, our orchestra will have had indeed another very successful year. GLEE CLUBS AND MIXED CHORUS . . . singing is the thing that makes you cheery! GIRLS' GLEE CLUB got oft to a rather slow ot the illness ot the Dexter. Mrs. Iames start this year because director. Miss Margaret Henderson substituted for some time and directed Concert. Mr. Schulze the girls in the Winter took charge of all vocal groups in February, and under his guiding baton, the unusually large group of about eighty girls became a well trained chorus. In the Spring Concert the Glee Club sang. Mendelssohn's, "Lift Thine Eyes" from "Elijah," "Follow Me Down to Carlow," Irish folk song. and "Bendemeer's Stream," They also sang at Baccalaureate services. "WHEN CORK WAS KING, and everything was minstrelsy, you know .... " The trio of cork besmeared countenances in the above picture belong to three members of the Boys' Glee Club who took part in "The Cottontown Iubileef' produced through the combined efforts of the eighty members of the club and their director, Mr. Schulze. Speaking about faces, we see some resemblance between those above and the famous facial expression of Ioe E. Brown, comedian. By the looks of things. polka dot bow ties and extremely large collars seem to be "All the rage" in Cottontown. A fair crowd of minstrelial fans enjoyed the show presented April eighth. MR. SCHULZE, director ot the Boys' Glee Club. Girls' Glee Club, Band, and Mixed Chorus, is shown swinging a baton at the latter of the two choral groups. tHe swings a baton when he can keep one in less then two pieces.l The gentleman from the tall com state has proven, in the two years he has been here, that he can handle both large and small groups. A graduate of Northwestern University. Mr. Schulze is a Bachelor of Music but not "A bachelor in matri- mony." As a result of the wonderful efforts of Mr. Schulze, the membership of each of his classes has grown until they have almost reached the limits of favorable growth. CLOSE HARMONY and perfect blending of mixed voices under the direction of Mr. Schulze is the musical treat that the Mixed Chorus is capable of producing. Because of the range of voices in the Mixed Chorus, a wide variety of selections can be very pleasingly produced, mak- ing this group the finest of the three singing groups in the school. The Mixed Chorus this year sang in The Fall Concert, The Spring Con- cert, and The Music Festival. Next fall, if he has charge of The Mixed Chorus, Mr. Schulze hopes to enlarge the group to sixty very select and choice voices. 60 BEAUX ARTS Art for art's sake . . . and ours, too! FIGURE DRAWING was the first project started in Art classes this year by Miss Nellie M. Iohn- son. That both moming and afternoon classes enjoyed this work is shown by the fact that a large proportion of the completed assignment was exhibited in the art department. Charcoal, colored chalk and ink were the preferred med- iums. The above picture shows Sherman Lloyd and Chester Leuders, two members of the art class, engaged in figure drawing and designing. In these classes portraits were painted from life, various members posing as models. The technical aspect of painting by the use of shad- ing was taken up in portraiture. A SENIOR MEMBER of the art class, Neva Maynard, is seen studying one of the outstanding poster designs produced by Beaux Arts Club. The Goodfellows, a philanthropical organization, staged a poster contest just before the holiday season in which Schools of Greater Muskegon took part. Iack Leaf, a graduating senior, of Muskegon Heights High School. won the contest. The art classes also submitted work in other poster contests. Many exceptional designs were entered in the National Meat Poster contest and in the New York World Fair contest. To be effective, these posters must be original in design, yet snappy in slogan and color. SURPRISING APTITUDES were developed in the two classes in sculpturing. Nellie Lavryn- chuk, a graduating senior, is shown carving a plaster of Paris figure. This process involves the use of such instruments as scalpel, knives of different sizes, hammer and chisel. Clay, soap, and plaster of Paris are the three dimensional materials used as mediums. Soap carving is the most popular among the students, with clay work running a close second. A novel innova- tion involving the use of starch, salt and water was successfully made by one enterprising stu- d:nt for the first time in this type of work. BEAUX ARTS CLUB members have been work- ing in the three dimensional materials-soap. clay, and plaster of Paris. They are exhibited in the art room with other statues and handicraft. The Club has its business meetings every other Friday. It has established an honor point sys- tem by which a member is rewarded a gold pin if he earns filly points within the semester. If successful, this system will continue. The officers this year are president, lack Leaf: vice- president, Ed Koslosky: secretary, Kenneth H. Iohnson: chairman, Sherman Lloyd: and adviser, Miss Nellie M. Iohnson. FORENSICS "E'en though vanquished. THE DEBATE SQUAD this year included lack Turner, Hall Ketchum, and Lily May Geisler. all former members. New members added to this experienced group were Marcella Young, Bill Booker, and Ieanetie Weisenhofer. The Nalional Forensic League is one of the major club organ- izations in our high school and has been among our activities for many years. Officers this year are president, Iack Turner: secretary, Lily May Geisler: and advisers. Miss Iulia Royse and Mr. Eugene Gillaspy. Points are awarded in forensics and letters may be won on the point basis as in sport activities. AN ORATION is an original speech, written and delivered by the contestant, usually dealing with some pressing problem ot the day. In this year's contest five students took part. Earl Schwass won first place with his oration "Democracy In The Balance," Betty Smith took second with "This Civilized America," and Don Phelps won third place with "A West Point for Civil Servants." Margery Brunk and Virginia Watson also competed in the contest. Earl Schwass, the winner of first place, repre- sented the school in the sub-district contest at Grand Haven in which he took second place. he would argue stil1!" EXTEMPORANEOUS speaking is a difficult art. requiring quick thinking and a capacily for staring away a great deal of knowledge where it can be called torth at a moment's notice. General topics are first assigned the contestant, and an hour before the contest he is given a definite topic based on these general topics. This gives him one hour in which to prepare his speech. This year Lily Mae Geisler, speaking on Iohn L. Lewis and the CIO and the sitdown strike, won first in the school contest, the sub-district. and the district contests, competing with Mus- kegon, Grand Rapids, and others. THE ANNUAL DECLAMATION CONTEST. open to Freshmen and Sophomores, was held on March 16. Sixteen students competed in the preliminary and eight in the finals. Willard Turner, a sophomore, won first place in the local high school contest. lane Carlson won second, and Tom Blake won third. On April 6, Willard Tumer represented our school in the sub-dislrict contest at Grand Haven. He won second place in the sub-district, after competing against Holland, Muskegon, Grand Rapids, and Grand Haven. Willard was also very active in the debate work this year. 62 M SENIOR PLAY Liqhtnin' struck but once-and made a hit! IOHN THOMAS as "Iohn Marvin," and Lorraine Iohnell as "Mildred Buckley," adopted daughter of the "Ioneses" played the ingenue leads. "Lightnin"' Bill Iones is leaving them, alone. Among the supporting characters were Marian Hislop, characterizing "Mrs. Iones," the part taken by Irene Rich in the movie. The villain of the play was characterized by lack Turner as "Ray- mond Thomas," Lily Mae Geisler, as the gay young divorcee and Sherman Lloyd, playing the "small town" judge added comedy to the atmo- sphere. "Mr. and Mrs. Harper," otherwise Iack Leaf and Betty Smith, offered the pathetic side cf divorces. Liuhtnin' . John Marvin .

Mary Strand A SPARKLING BIT OF COMEDY was offered by Bill Iandres as Oscar, the blunt Scandinavian and Robert Wortelboer, "Zeb," provoked many a laugh from the audience. The prologue re- quired a log cabin scene in California: the first and third acts a summer resort on the border line between California and Nevada while the second was a court room. The preparation and scenery were all under the direction of special committees under the guiding hands of Miss Royse and Mr. Gillaspy. The make-up was especially interesting as a result of the dramatics classes' aiding in applying it. ' "I,IGH'l'NIN'," a tried and true comedy by Win- chell Smith and Frank Bacon, was presented by our senior class this spring. One oi the writers, Frank Bacon, starred in its successful Broadway run, taking the part oi "Lightnin' " Bill Iones. Later in Hollywood the running of the play was con- tinued and it was made into a successful movie. Eugene Clawson took the part of "Lighlnin"' in our production and really created a character as must have been imagined by the playwrights themselvesp He created in our minds the role that Will Rogers created in the movies, but best of all was that through it all shone his own personality. l Left to right: lean Ruiter, Kendrick Dillman, Shirley Wagner, Richard George lThe Hoosier Schoolmasterl, Stephie Prudick, Comell Schultz, Ie anette Wiesenhoier. Iames Earle. IUNIOR PLAY Offered with the hope it will revive a vanished era . . . One ol the finest examples of high school dra- matics was presented February 4 by the IIHHOI' Class oi '38 when they produced their version ot the beloved play, "The Hoosier Schoolmaster. A cast oi twenty-six members oi the junior class made this play the success it proved. to be. Stephie Prudick and Richard George displayed outstanding talent as the leads in "The Hoosier Schoolmaster." Other characters who showed unusual ability were Ieanette Wiesenhoter, as Mrs. Sarah lane Means: Clarence Vandervelde. as Von Schroeder: Comell Schultz. as Bud Means: Kendrick Dillman. as lack Means: lean Ruiter, as Mirandy Means: Shirley Wagner' PS Martha Hawkins: and Kenneth Kooi, as Squire Hawkins. Ralph Hart ook tRichard Georgel. a young man of courageous spirit, found that teaching on the "Flat Creek Deestrick ol southem Indiany" in 1872 required pluck and wit as well as "book lamin'." In view of the fact that he was young and inexperienced and not a pugilistic type. presented many dilficulties. To make things even more complicated. he tell in love with Hannah Thompson fStephie Prudickl. a beautiful girl. Through the etlorts of "Flat Creek" criminals. he became the victim ol an unscrupulous plot, which. in the end, unwound itself in an extremely excit- ing play. One of the lavorite scenes that the audience 64 Qi as well as the cast will never forget is the Spell- ing Bee scene in the Flat Creek Schoolhouse. That scene was made to stand out above all the rest by the splendid acting oi Kenneth Kooi as Squire Hawkins. Another scene that will always stand out in one's memory is the Court Scene. It was in that scene that Bill Booker showed his ability as a prosecuting attomey, and F. I. Phillips presented his version of the "Cracked General Jackson."

MAKE-UP plays an imporiant part in a good performance of a play. Naturally colored faces off-stage, become pale white masks behind the footlights when the proper make-up is not used. Its presence puts the finishing touches on an otherwise rough-edged character. Lillian Walley is being made-up by our own "Max Factor," Sam Hornak, during class. The group has been studying the part grease paint plays in character delineation. The footlights are so powerful that make-up must be slightly exaggerated in order to be carried. The one color law that all make- up adherents must follow is that Black recedes and White advances. "THE VERY LATEST." says the French milliner as two students, Lily Mae Geisler and Sherman Lloyd. act out a pantomime problem in dramatics class. "Pantomime is acting without speech as a means of expressing one's self." This cultivates the students' imaginations. In this type of acting the subject creates his scene with the help of only a few properties. The test of a true actor is pantomime and its presence in a play is always welcomed. The beginning of this art can be traced to the early Grecian festivals. Such work is only a part of the interesting study of dramatics. The value lies in the development and projection of a character. THESE ENERGETIC THESPIANS are rehearsing one of the Dramatic Club's one-act plays, called "The Florist Shop." Acting alone does not pro- vide enough work for all students: every branch of the theater is used as subjects for discussion. This makes a more perfected performance possible because in this way all angles are studied. The Club presented three plays the first season. Officers are: president, Shennan Lloyd: vice-president, Lily May Geisler: secretary, Margery Brunk: publicity chairman, Annajane Yeager and Derek Hopkinson. The Club's con- stitution was composed and compiled by the cfficers. WHETHER IIM EARLE is interested in the young lady or fastening scenery are two dif- ferent matters, not to be discussed at this moment. But what we can tell you is that the young lady is Bonnie Wachsmuth, head of the student scenery department. She and her assistant are attaching an imitation door on one of the sets. If the hinges aren't correctly placed, an actor may pull the whole set down.when he opens the door. If the door opens in or out is another vital question. A scenery expert must have a knowledge of carpentry, art, and common sense because his job is very important in the success of a play. P N LANGUAGES The study of language and literature leads to world wide understanding THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT, headed by Miss Iulia A. Sprague, has the largest enrollment of any course in high school. Three years of the subject are required for a diploma, and the senior year is elective. Literature and grammar are combined in all courses except the junior year, which consists entirely of English literature. ln the freshman and sophomore courses, the principles of wrilten and oral composition are taught. Senior English is a review of technical grammar points, which is most desirable for stu- dents entering college. LATIN is a Romance Language and the French. Spanish, Roumanian, and the Italian languages are outgrowths of Latin. Latin offers a two year course in our High School but may be extended in college. The first three semesters are spent in intensive grammatical study of the Latin Lan- guage and the last semester, the knowledge acquired is applied in reading Iulius Caesar's "Commentaries." Many English words are de- rived from Latin and so it is very useful in help- ing you use bettter English. Above is a picture of a map of Europe. and some fourth semester students. Mr. Kruizenga is the instructor. THE LITERATURE COURSE offers a varied pro- gram. Freshmen study such classics as Steven- son's "Treasure Island" and Shakespeare's "Iulius Caesar." The sophomore course consists of read- ing "Silas Marner," by Eliot: "Idy1ls of the King" by Tennyson and "Merchant of Venice" by Shakes- peare. A two-semester study of the literary history of England provides enjoyment for the juniors. lt includes stories from "Beowulf," in ancient times, to Virginia Woolf, of modern times. Senior literature is the study of the Amer- ican side of our inheritance. All four are sup- plemented by outside reading. ROLLING A FRENCH "r" proves a stumbling- block but also provides a great deal of fun for most beginning French students. The language is one of the most fascinating foreign tongues and is widely employed because of its practica- bility. It is very pleasing to the ear because there are no harsh vowel sounds. Besides the routine class work in grammar and vocabulary, and reading and translation, French history. build- ings, and customs are studied. Students also test their knowledge by writing French themes. Miss Kathleen Macdonald is the instructor. This course is valuable to students taking French in college. SOCIAL SCIENCES A background for the future CIVICS CIRCLE-as pointed out by Alice Keeler to Mr. Gillaspy's civics class shows the circle ot economic activity and man's way of earning a living which represents the studies of the ninth grade civics classes. This course also consists of studying the standards of proper liv- ing, buying and selling, government's control of industry and natural resources, and civil service. The most important feature oi this course, how- ever, is the building of citizenship by learning the rights and duties of citizens to make the stu- dents better citizens of their respective communities. MR. MCKENZIE is shown with Vasile Shapka pointing out that bit of "terra firma" known as the United States during a session ot his Amer- ican history class. The study oi exploration. expansion, invention. causes and results of wars, each presidents' administration, and our country's policies both at home and abroad, beginning with the visit Columbus paid the Indians to history made today, is included. To make this course more interesting and complete current events are discussed regularly. It is amazing to note the relationship between text book history and current history. 67 MISS MACDONALD is having Helen Zaczek point out Egypt on a large colored map. Maps, incidentally, are very important and used con- stantly in this history course. World History is studied by the sophomores and begins at the time when prehistoric man and beast roamed the earth, coming right up to modern times and cur- rent events. The value oi history is to indicate the steps by which man has learned to cooperate with his fellow men. Although the students are usually puzzled as to whether Christopher Colum- bus sailed the deep blue sea in 1493 or sailed the ocean in 1492, they usually know when the war oi 1812 was fought. ECONOMICS, the very essence ot living, is the problem before this studious group of 12-2 students, taught hy Mr. Iames Verduin. The group shown here is engrossed in the "ins-and outs" of the economic business cycle, including exchange, production, distribution, and consump- tion. Students learn, in this course, the general workings oi business in relation to social condi- tions and various world-situations. They learn to iorm judgments on financial conditions and to "feel the pulse" oi the stock market from time to time. It gives them an introduction to the ways of making a living and saves future headaches. l MATHEMATICS Mathematics, the science oi clear thinkers ADVANCED ALGEBRA offers a chance for those who enjoyed freshman algebra to gain more knowledge oi the subject. The classes are taught by Miss Kurtz, who follows the general method oi assigning homework which is dis- cussed in class. These discussions, which are frequently interrupted by the screech ot chalk being applied to the blackboard by an un- practiced hand, prove very helpful. The course begins with an extensive review of the funda- mentals, linear, equations, and factoring. This is followed by work dealing with radicals, ex ponents, and quadratic equations. COLLEGE ALGEBRA is the most advanced math course. During the course the funda- mental operations and factoring are reviewed. The students are taught the correct method of handling fractional and negative exponents, of solving quadratics and linear equations, and oi graphing them. The study oi progressions, com- pleted numbers. and determinants occupies tr large part of the semester. The theory ot equa- tions. and logarithms are also touched upon. The semester's work is kept in a notebook which is turned in every marking period and the pupil is allowed to work at the speed he desires. PLANE GEOMETRY, one oi the very important iundamental math courses, is studied by an aver- age ot forty pupils per year. The main purpose ot the course is to increase the students' ability to study thoroughly and reason soundly. The necessity of well-drawn figures and good con- struction is emphasized. Someone has said that if one has a good geometric figure beiore him. his problem is half solved. Properties of para- llelograms, triangles, and circles are studied in sections. Problems using the theorems studied are solved and practical applications of the principles are discussed. SOLID GEOMETRY, the sequel to Plane Geome- try, is a course taken by an average oi thirty students per year. To the student pictured above, proving a proposition, a well drawn figure is very necessary because of the difficulty in por- traying three dimensions on a plane surface. The most interesting individual projects of the year are the construction of sets of many-sided cardboard figures. The pupils' ability to reason out and prove propositions is further cultivated, and problems involving the fundamentals studied are solved. It develops the imagination. BIOLOGY AND GENERAL SCIENCE Frogs, Microscopes, Steam Engines . . . a great variety UNTIL MODERN TIMES, natural history was the term used to describe life, either of plants or of animals. Long ago there was little attempt made to distinguish between such sciences as astron- omy, physics. or chemistry. Only a little knowl- edge of each was known to anyone. Today, it is often possible for a high school student to choose only one such field for specialization. An interesting part of the study of general science is the life-study of certain great scientists. such as Galileo. the man who watched a pendulum swing and thus discovered a method of telling time. Newton and Pasteur and others prove exciting. USING THE MICROSCOPE is one of the first things taught in the study of biology. It is neces- sary that each student know every detail about the microscopes before they can be used. With the microscopes, the study of amoeba and proto- zoa proves to be very interesting. During the study of plants the students are shown slides of various leaves, stems, and petals of plants. The microscope also shows the minute structure of different parts of animals. The invention of the microscope has been a great aid in making the knowledge of science extend to greater fields. GENERAL SCIENCE is the connecting subject between nature study in the lower grades and the higher special sciences such as chemistry. physics. zoology, botany, and biology, all of which are usually taught in the higher grades ot high school and college. Science leads thn pupils to define and solve their own problems by original thinking. By this method any num- ber of questions which begin with "Why?" and "How?" can be figured out by the pupil it though. is taken into consideration. A really scientific student never jumps to conclusions: he waits and experiments until he can prove a fact beyond a doubt. DISSECTING I-'ROGS is one of the interesting projects of biology. The student seen above is about to begin his dissection work on the frog. These frogs are kept in a jar of formaldehyde which helps to preserve them until the work is completed. Frogs make up only a small portion of the laboratory live-stock. In the aquarium there are fish, snails, a water-puppy, and newts. There are also in the classroom snakes tnon poisonousl, lizards, tree-toads, an alligator. sala- manders, turtles, crabs, and buttterflies. The stu- dent is also taught the functions of the plant and animal kingdom. 69 l PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY This world is governed by a Law. WALT POSVISTAK. a student in physics, is shown above conducting an experiment in light. With the use oi a Bunsen photometer, any student of physics can determine the candle power of a lamp by applying the results ot his experiment to the Law of Intensity which is as follows: The candle powers of two light sources are directly proportional to the squares of their distances from the screen. The understanding of mathe- matics and algebra is almost essential in the study of each of the divisions of physics, namely: mechanics, heat, sound, light, and electricity. PI-IYLLIS YOUNG. chemist-in-the-making, is shown preparing sulphur dioxide by the action of concentrated sulphuric acid on zinc. Action is aided by gentle heating. As all students oi chemistry know, sulphur dioxide is a heavy color- less gas. The whiteness of the gas coming from the test-tube in the picture is caused by traces of sulphur trioxide. Sulphur dioxide is one of the many interesting gases studied in chemistry. In some cases, sulphur dioxide acts as an oxidizing agent. and in others as a reducing agent. It can be dissolved in water to form sulphurous acid. Sulphur-mining is an interesting studY also. EXPERIMENTS IN PHYSICS must be preceded by a thorough understanding oi the problem. Three days ot the week are devoted to class- room discussion and the remaining two days to the laboratory work. The experiment being studied in the above picture is one in sound. pertaining to the study of laws governing the vibration rate oi strings. The three "string- twangers" and "tuning-tork bangers" conducting this experiment are Russell Iohnson, Carl Lund, and Iohn Thomas. Their three-stringed instru- ment is known as a sonometer. Many other ex- periments ol this nature make the study of physics extremely interesting and practical. CHEMISTRY. taught under the able instruction ot Mr. R. L. Rakestraw. is an interesting and worthwhile subject for study. A knowledge ot the fundamentals will aid anyone in any walk of lite. It completed, the course requires two semesters of diligent study on the part of the student. Above is shown a part oi the 2:15 class tsecond semesterl, conducting an experiment with sulphur dioxide and sulphurous acid. Every pre- caution is taken to prevent accidents in the "lab": aisles are kept clear, a tire extinguisher is always near at hand. To prevent acid burns, a bottle of ammonium hydroxide is always within reach. COMMERCE Faith. 'tis the thing that makes the world go 'round SHORTHAND is a method of writing words in the shortest possible means. The beginning class 11-1 starts with three prac- tice pages. Each semester the required pages increase until they reach 10 pages which are to be handed in at class time every day. The beginning shorthand student takes dictation very slowly, but the fourth semester student is required to take dictaticn and be able to transcribe back at the rate of 100 words per minute. The third and fourth semesters are devoted to the speed building, accuracy, and increasing the vocabulary. Miss Irene M. Brief is the instructor. IUNIOR OFFICE TRAINING, taught by Miss Kathryn Reid, is the students' first commercial subject. Besides giving them an accurate idea of just what is required of a junior office worker, it acquaints them with the fundamentals of bus- iness and its procedure: it acquaints them with the more common business documents. As ma- chines are playing an important part in business today, Iunior Office Training gives the students a knowledge of the many different kinds used. The operation of several of these machines is learned later. Iunior Office Training is a subject to be studied with advantage by each student. 71 Mr. PETERMAN is explaining a model resource and liability statement to a fourth semester class. In this semester the students work out financial statements for all the members of the faculty. They also complete a practice set compiled by Mr. Peterman. In addition to this they are taught to file social security and income tax reports. The other bookkeeping classes devote their time to keeping books for imaginary firms. This is the first time there have been two advanced bookkeeping classes because of the increase in the number of students. SENIOR OFFICE TRAINING gives the commer- cial student practical experience in the duties of the secretary-stenographer. The aim and purpose of the course is to develop and perfect the stu- dent's ability as a shorthand typist as well as a writer of business correspondence. Each Mon- day, Miss Kathryn Reid, instructor, announces the weekly assignments. These are handed in the following week in the form of budgets, contain- ing various business papers. Accuracy tests are given daily and speed tests twice a week. Each student is assigned to a certain teacher as a stenographer and has the use of a typewriter two hours a day. 'L FOODS AND CLOTHING Two things every girl should know. SERVlNG FOODS in an attractive manner is only one of the many phases of home-making taught in our foods department by Miss Gladys Reid. Besides the regular work in planning and cooking breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners, the girls listen to various demonstrators who visit the classes during the year. Then, too, the girls visit places of business, studying commercial methods of cooking and baking. Such trips prove highly interesting and give the girls a broader interest and knowledge oi the subject. Serving is done in classes and is put into practice on a larger scale in the high school cafeteria. PARIS DEGREES shorter skirts, Tyrolean styles, and bright colors tor this season . . . Girls in Miss Mina Morris' clothing classes eagerly scan these fashion bulletins before choos- ing their projects for the year. But the principles of design, the harmony ol colors, and the selec- tion ol pattern and material suited to the individ- ual are just a few ol the things a clothing student must consider before she is ready to use the sew- ing machines. The girls must discover their wardrobe needs and decide whether they should make a blouse, skirt, dress, coat, or maybe an evening gown. BALANCED MEALS are most important from the standpoint of health. The girls must learn to combine necessary minerals and vitamins as well as other good elements in order to iorm the pertect diet. Color plays a great part in the art of cooking. too, because people are always attracted by interesting lood combinations. Science must not be omitted from the course, how- ever, and so part oi the semester is devoted to the study of processes of digestion and the uses of various foods in the body. Any girl can de- rive a great deal ol benefit from such valuable and interesting work. PRESSING THE GARMENT well is the impor- tant finishing touch lar all of the clothing projects made in the clothing department. The girls style their completed garments before their classmates, who offer their criticisms. In this way they de- velop poise and are then ready to model their handiwork in the annual style show which is presented each spring. At this event the mothers and friends ol the girls are invited and are served tea by the foods classes. A course in clothing is invaluable to any girl because it encourages good taste and smartness ol dress at a minimum cost. WOODWORK AND MECHANICAL DRAWING Crafts of T-square and chisel WITH T-SQUARE, scale, dividers, and other drawing instruments approximately 100 boys of our school learn to draw, make, and read blue- prints in our mechanical drawing department. Courses offered in mechanical drawing are: Elemen'1ry and Advanced Detail Drafting, Wood- work Drawing, Sheet Metal Drafting, Mechanisms, Mechanical Design, Descriptive Geometry, Archi- tectural Drawing, and a study of the orders of architecture and free hand sketching. In one or two of the courses the making of tracings and blueprints are required, giving the student the principle of blueprint making from start to finish. MAX RYEFIELD tpencil above earl is carefully watching Mr. Dingler, instructor, check one of his drawings made for the construction of a cabi- net. Drawings and a bill of materials must be provided by the student for each project under- taken by him. Pieces of fumiture such as beautifully finished cedar chests, smoking stands, cabinets, and what-not shelves are only a few of the many articles made in the school's wood- work department. Although woodworking, as an industry, isn't what it used to be, there is always room at the top, and some of the boys of our school are planning a woodworking career. 73 MR. COURTRIGHT, Mechanical Drawing in- structor, is checking over a student's drawing for errors in his work. tHe found some errors, too!! Under the watchful eye of Mr. Courtright, a student soon learns to find most of his own errors and how to correct them: all of the errors must be corrected before the drawing receives the final mark. Besides teaching the boys to be neat and accurate, the courses in mechanical drawing are a good introduction to a drafting or an engineering career. FLYING CHIPS and turnings cover everything as Ralph Sircher works at lathe number six. Ralph is shown here turning a box on the large face-plate in the woodwork shop. A sharp chisel plus a sharp eye and knowledge as how to properly hold the chisel without any personal injury are required before any boy may do lathe work. The boys in the woodwork shop under the direction of Mr. Dingler use the lathes to make beautiful table legs, lamps, boxes, dishes, bowls, and many other useful articles. In addition to the product one can see, there are good habits and attitudes of mind being developed. l l l "PRINTIN' DID" Many a successful man got his start this way THE PRINTING AND PUBLICATIONS depart- ment of Heights High offers much of interest and education to anyone. Here all technical work connected with the printing of report cards, ab- sence excuses. etc., as well as the Acorn and Oaks, is done. The first thing that meets our eyes is, quite naturally, a student "setting type." Our guide, Mr. Calvin Koehn, informs us that printing from engraved wooden blocks was known to the Chinese as early as 50 B. C. He also added, "lt remained. however, for Iohannes Gutenberg to invent movable typed-which has done more for the spread of education than any other invention." THE PRESS ROOM, is a very busy place at all times. but you have arrived when the presses were never busier, as this year's edition of the Senior yearbook, The Oaks, is now rolling off the presses. Our equipment is overtaxed for the amount of work we have to put out: the work is growing in both volume and size. The size of the annual represents the maximum size of printing surface that can be produced efficiently by a group of high school students. However. we have had some additions to the equipment in the form of new type-you saw it used in the later issues of The Acorn-which is very helnful. THE IOB COMPLETED, the next scene in our little travelogue shows Mr. Koehn, printing in- structor, helping a student fLyle Pitcherl figure the number of points in an advertisement which may be seen in its completed form in this year- book. Close figuring is necessary to see that the ad does not only fill the space for which the advertiser contracted, but also so that it will not overcrowd the page or become troublesome when it comes to lockup and make-ready for the press. The object in hand looks like a ruler, but don't let it fool you: in the language of the trade it's a "1ine-gauge," with which type is measured. THE PAPER-CUTTER is the next focal point,- "shears" to you. Why, there's Iim Fairris. . . Humm, that's funny: he's too busy to be bothered. At this machine all paper cutting is done CWell, there are shears in the press room, but who uses them anymore?l for every job done in the school print-shop. "The first step in cutting stock is to figure how you're going to divide the large sheet to get the maximum number of sheets of the size desired. A sheet of strawboard is placed on the bottom and the top of the paper to be cut. This insures a clean cut, prevents soiling, and keeps the clamps from creasing the paper. 74 ACORN AND OAKS "His words were oaks in acorns . . . " HARRIETTE LUNDBERG is shown here doing some of the work necessary to complete a publi- cation ot the Oaks. All assignments must be made to certain people to write up. When these assignments are completed, the finished article must be handed back, re-read, corrected, and approved. This constitutes only a small fraction of the inter-working of a school publication, be- cause each article requires a great deal of thought and accuracy. The same method of work is carried out in publishing our bi-weekly news- paper the "Acorn," which proved a great success this year as well as previous years. MARY BENDUS, Administration Editor, is busy looking through the tile to check up on the amount of material needed to complete another section ol the Oaks. The staff this year numbers seventy-three. Their work has been somewhat heavier than in previous years as the copy had to be very exact and in some cases it was difficult to tell all the important things and still keep the copy correctly fitted. Another big problem was getting the reporters to keep their stories in reference to the pictures, but a staff of 73 is not so large that everyone did not have a great deal ol work to do. 75 EARL SCHWASS, feet up on the desk, has been editor-in-chief of our school publications, the Acorn and the Oaks. This year the members ol the Acorn Staff participated in the Western Michigan Press Conference lor high school journalists, which was held at Muskegon High School. A poster depicting the publishing of an edition of the Acorn took second place in the contest in which posters from a number of other schools also were presented. Another "new wrinkle" this year was the Scribbler's Club which was organized in the fall. Several parties were enjoyed by the group through this new social organization. MR. WILLIAM MURRAY, adviser for The Oaks, has a great deal of credit coming to him for the success of every Oaks for the last few years. Though many students fail to realize it, most of the responsibility falls on him, In this picture, he is measuring the pictures that are to go into the Oaks because they must be a required size. It is necessary that every picture, article, and page be of an exact size, in order to make a successful annual publication. Behind the scenes ot publishing an annual, is presented a very in- teresting situation. The annual does not print itself, every article must be written and every picture taken. vt? 471 S I HI-Y AND PEPPY BOOSTER CLUB All-round good fellowship, with a purpose FORTY MEMBERS of the Hi-Y enjoyed a suc- cessful year in which delegates were sent to Camp Hayo-Went-Ha, Older Boys' Conference, and the State Hi-Y Congress. These delegates returned with ideas that made the club prosper and improve. Many successful parties, stag and mixed, were held at the Y.M.C.A.. and a joint meeting with the Booster Club, with an informal discussion of boy and girl relationship, was held at the Temple Methodist Church, and a good time was had by all. The Hi-Y cooperated with the Booster Club and the Library Club in staging the Woolworth Fair, the biggest event of the year. OFFICERS of the Peppy Booster Club for the past year were Margery Brunk, president: Inez Spahr, vice-president: Ellen Hoekenga, secretary: Marcella Young, treasurer. To become a mem- ber ol the Booster Club a girl must have earned 500 points from gym work and must have a "C" average in scholastic work. Membership is limited to twenty by the constitution. With the Hi-Y, the Library Club, and the Booster Club put on the Woolworth Carnival and enjoyed a party at the Y.M.C.A. The members were grieved by the death of Elva Wagner, a very faithful member. IOHN THOMAS. second semester president of the Hi+Y, carried on under the Hi-Y creed: "The purpose of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain, and extend, throughout the school and community, the highest standards of Christian character." He very capably carried on the business meet- ing, cooperated with party committees, and all the other things necessary for the president of an active boy's society. Iohn welcomed the Grand Haven and Muskegon Hi-Y's at a joint meeting held late in the year. The note-book seen in the photograph contains the Constitution drafted many years ago when our Hi-Y was first formed. THE PEPPY BOOSTER CLUB girls have com- pleted another very successful and active year. They carried on their regular work of selling candy bars at all of the home basketball and football games. The profits from this were turned over to the Athletic Board of Control. The annual dance sponsored by the Booster Club was called the "Top Hat Dance." The gymnasium was decorated with black and white imitation top hats. The initiation was as funny as usual. Girls were forced to parade to their classes for one day wearing too large dresses and shoes, and carrying market baskets. GIRL SCOUTS AND GIRL RESERVES They are jolly good groups SIGNALING MESSAGES in Morse Code is one of the second class tests which must be passed in order to become a Second Class Scout. First- aid work. naiure study, and merit badge work is carried on in meetings held at the homes of the members. At the beginning of each meeting the promise, laws, motto and salute are repeated at an interesting color ceremony. The girls enjoy singing regular Girl Scout Songs. A goodnight circle and taps end each get-together. Patrol leaders, Elsie Purchase, Elaine Reelman, anl Ieanette Wiesenhofer: treasurer, Mary Purchase: Scribe, Iune Westover: and the leader Mrs. Paul Nielson. "READY FOR SERVICE," a line of the Girl Reserve code, was particularly emphasized by club activities this year. A membership drive, including a girls' assembly, was the first project. At Christmas time a very successful dinner and party was given for about fifty children from Heights grade schools. The girls aided the Visiting Nurses' Association by working on sew- ing projects. A series of talks on Charm by Annajane Yeager proved helpful to the members. Officers were Betty Smith, president: Margery Brunk. vice-president: Mary Purchase, secretary: and Harriette Lundberg, treasurer. COOKING A MEAL out-of-doors after tramping for miles is the most enjoyable part of a Girl Scout hike. The girls observe wild flowers and animals and explore new places. This year :1 week-end party was held at Camp Marston. The monthly candy sales were very successful and much looked forward to by all the school. Also a taffy pull was held at the home of Elsie Purchase. A swimming party at Muskegon High School Gym was both for enjoyment and a part of the First Class Scout Test. Next year the girls will have a troop room which they are fixing at the home of one of the members. THREE FLAGS. the American. Christian, and Girl Reserve banners, along with salutes and songs, are used in the opening ritual of the club meetings. This year two lines of the code were discussed and biographies of famous women presented at each meeting. The Girl Reserve Cabinet, composed of the officers and committee chairmen, meets with Miss Vera Cummings, club adviser, to plan activities. An amusing play, "Maid in America" was given several times by club members. The State Conference was held at Grand Rapids, and the two representing our club were Mary Purchase and Phyllis Parrott. 77 LIBRARY A good book is the life-blood of a Master spirit MISS HAUN, the librarian, is busy cataloging books this spring. About 500 copies have come in this winter to be prepared for the shelves, and 425 have already been put in circulation. When Miss Haun is not cataloging books, she is kept busy answering questions for instructors and students alike. She answers such ques- tions as, "Wil1 you put these books on special reference, please? Do you have a copy of this book? Where can I find this poem? How do you use the card catalog?" fetc.J Thus, she and the library girls are kept busy every minute of the day. Miss Haun is training the girls to be future librarians. MARGERY BRUNK with stamp in one hand and a card in the other, is preparinq to stamp a book for Dorres Ostling. while Elsie Purchase in the background is straightening shelves. It is the daily duty of the library girl to card and shelve books. read her stacks. work at desk: and anything else that Miss Haun has for her to do. There are also special duties such as, at ten o'clock fine notices are sent out. at three fifteen circulation is taken, and there are various other duties to be performed at different hours of the day. The girls are all faithful workers. MARION HISLOP. president of the library club, is conducting the weekly meeting which is held on Wednesday. Al the first meeting of the month each girl reads one of her favorite poems: a speaker attends the second meeting: the third meeting Miss Haun asks the girls questions per- taining to the library: and the fourth meeting is a program planned by one of the girls. At each meeting one of the girls brings a new word and the meaning of it for the other girls to leam. Each month the club holds a party for an outside activity. These parties are held at the homes of different members of the library club. THE MAGAZINE ROOM of the library is a busy place every hour with students reading for pleasure and for studies. The library receives at least thirty magazines every month. There are some to interest boys, others to interest girls. and still others for the interest of everyone. The magazine closet'is filled with old numbers for reference uses. There are also bound magazines in the fiction room of the library. These mag- azines consist of several monthly issues of the magazine. Altogether the magazines play a big part in the use of the library. STUDENT COUNCIL Democracy in daily practice . . . IACK LEAF. president of the Student Council. is the guiding spirit of the august body. He is ably assisted by vice-president Robert Damm. The Student Council is composed of all the officers of the Freshman, Sophomore. Iunior, and Senior classes. Class officers automatically become Stu- dent Council members and they elect their own officers. The duties of the Student Council consists of making the school calendar, approving guest lists, and regulating the student body in general. The Student Council thus performs a very neces- sary and beneficial function in school life and gives members valuable experience. "HOBO HOP." "Cupid's Caper" and other such intriguing titles were given the dances which were sponsored by the students of our school this year. The Student Council is connected with each dance in that it is up to them to set the date, admission, and also the amount of money that is to be paid the orchestra that is hired.. Another thing connected with the dances which concerns the council is the approving of the guest list. This is the selecting of twenty people who do not attend school but will be given permits to attend the dance. Each class spon-- sors two dances each year and there are several others sponsored by school organizations. FOXWELL "The Magician" and his duck was one of the numbers included on the Lyceum course this year. These members are arranged by our student council at the beginning of each year. It is the members' work to select the groups that they think will be of the most inter- est to the student body. Numbering among the series presented this year were the "Utica Jubilee Singers," a group of very talented Negro men: "Davies Light Opera Company," who presented selections from a group of semi-classic operas: Ben East, and Bob Hanson, and Foxwell who puzzled the students with his numerous magic tricks. The student body enjoyed all of these numbers. SHIRLEY WAGNER, efficient secretary of our student governing body, is seen at her task in the picture above. These officers, together with the members of the Student Council, guide the affairs of the students, regulate hall traffic, issue the student activity books, arrange for school dances, and perform numerous other tasks. Ad-- visers of the Student Council this year were: Miss Van Raalte and Mr. Iohnson for the juniors, and Mr. Kruizenga and Mr. Rudd for the seniors. Mr. Bolt as counselor. 'iff-14512 rx Q BOYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Every boy should have an opportunity for health! IN EARLY FALL AND SPRING the gym classes play indoor baseball and the majority of the boys take part with more zeal than any other game. Indoor baseball has long been a favorite with the gym classes. Each gym class is divided into four teams. each with a captain, and they play against each other. The standings of each team are recorded and a lively and exciting race is the result. The entire gym class takes part in this event with a fervor unequaled in any other sport. Towards the end of the playing season, when a few vic- tories mean victory or defeat, to the boys each game is comparable to Major League Baseball games. MUSKEGON HEIGHTS has had for many years athletic facilities which enable the boys of the physical education departments to enjoy all kinds of sports. Boxing, basketball, baseball, and tumbling are enjoyed through the year by the students. Gym is taken by the students every other day. Boys taking gym on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. change after the second five weeks and alternate with other boys who had previously taken it two times a week. With all of the various forms of healthy recrea- tion the Physical Education Department has al- ways been popular with the students. 80 BASKETBALL is one of the most popular sports in High School and is enjoyed by the Heights gym classes the year around. After changing into shorts, the boys dash up the stairs to gain possession of the coveted basketball for that gym period. After roll is taken, a lively game of basketball is started. All boys participate and the games are fast and furious. When the time has arrived for showers and changing the boys are called in by their instructor, Mr. O. E. Iohnson. Since the various rules have speeded up the game, basket- ball is being found more popular by students every day. EACH YEAR when Coach Iohnson is confronted with the problem of picking the varsity basket- ball five, he most usually picks them from the Second team of the previous season. To the Second team coach, Mr. Kruizenga, the problem is nct so easy. Unless Mr. Kruizenga has a full squad over from Central, he has to pick the pros- pective second team from boys who have played either in the intramural leagues or in their gym class. Many boys who were unable to make the Cen- tral team because of their inability in playing have improved so much after they reach high school that they are rvhle to make the team. 5 z g .wr fa -..,,,r'----..... ' ,c , Q7' GIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Good health is the foundation of happiness DID IT GO OVER? Such a fair, skilled player as this should get the ball over the net. The tennis courts are always popular places with students when the days are warm enough to get out for a game of tennis. Muskegon Heights High School has quite a number of active and excellent tennis players. The courts may be used by students at any time except when a gym class is in session. At that time only members of the gym class in session are allowed to use the tennis courts. Some of the girls in the gym classes are becoming very good tennis players. WI-IACK! THERE GOES THE BALL! Another homerun for the Freshmen. This is a iamiliar sight on the school baseball diamond. The girls put forth all eftorts in order to win the game for their own side. One doesn't hear so much about girls' baseball teams but they are very popular at high school. Perhaps this is because base- ball is such a common sport. Although the girls are required to take gym only on alternate days, several years ago boys and girls were required to take gym every day all four years. Later this requirement was reduced to three, and then to two. In spite of the handicap, the course is CHAMPS of the Girls' Intramural Basketball Tournament are the Iuniors this year. During the months of Ianuary and February this tournament was conducted under the direction of Mrs. Flor- ence Murray, the girls' athletic instructor. The nine girls who represented the Iuniors are: Ieanette Wiesenhofer, Elsie Purchase, lean Haas, Marcella Young, Iean Ruiter, Marcella Cierlak, Patricia Koch, Marjorie Currey. and Vera Reynolds, who was captain. The high scorer of the team was Marcella Cierlak. All the girls on the team played their very best in every game. THE GIRLS get cr great deal of enjoyment from the sports they enter into in gym. Good clean games are taught in gym, and in addition good sportsmanship in all things. Girls learn how to acquire strong, sound bodies and to im- prove their general health. If all of the girls were asked whether or not they liked gym, we are sure they would all say they will never lor- get the good times and profitable experiences they had there. It is a common sight, in warm weather, to see the girls in their play suits, im- proving themselves in track events or on the baseball field. All girls, unless excused, have "l0pS. " been active. 81 Features SENIOR SNAPSHOTS 84 1 I A 85 , IUNIOR SNAPSHOTS 86 87 if 'W SOPHOMORE SNAPSHOTS 88 FRESHMAN SNAPSHOTS 89 Athleties v ATHLETIC BOARD OF CONTROL A representative and authoritative body This year, as usual, the Athletic Board of Con- trol has conducted all of the routine business with which athletics in Muskegon Heights High The Board makes decisions School is concerned. on prices for football and basketball games, and appropriates money for operation ot the other sports. Baseball was one of the new projects which the Board undertook to sponsor this year. For the first time in the history ot the high school, the Muskegon Heights Tigers appeared in uni- forms on the diamond: While it is true that in other years, various "scrub" teams and teams sponsored by organizations such as the Board of Trade, have played scheduled games. It is true, too. that in other years baseball was more of cr high school sport than it has been during the past fifteen or twenty years. "League ball" seems to be staging a "comeback." The fact remains, however, that many high schools again have instituted the game as a regular part of the sports program. We are glad to say that our high school, with a good sports reputation to protect. is getting into the baseball field ot competition. No conclusions can be reached so tar as the season's prospects are concerned at this writing. Coach Oscar E. Iohnson is in charge of baseball, iull track duties having been taken over by Assistant Coach David R. McKenzie. The personnel of the Board of Control is such that it includes a fairly representative body of student members, faculty, and administrative members. Much credit for the successful opera- tion of the Board should be given to Principal C. F. Bolt. His deep interest in athletics has done much to make it possible for Muskegon Heights teams to achieve a respected place in the South- west Conference. The Board of Control takes this opportunity. also, to extend to all those faculty members who have worked for many years at the ticket booths and gates, a grateful word of thanks. For such work, the Board is sincerely thankful and ap- preciative. Many have worked each game for a decade or more, seldom having an opportunity to watch the Tigers play on the home field, in order that the game may go on. Student ' members of the Board are: Mike Dendrino, Margery Brunk, and Iohn Thomas. 92 VARSITY CLOSE-UPS A d R H. Thomas, R. E. Koslosky, R. G. Schall, L H Io Q Dendrino. L. T. Coston. R. T.

Opening day tor the new season with Grandville's powerful class B team found the Tigers over-eager and the team muffed several scoring opportunities. The half was actually over when the Heights first scored: the half ended after a play started. Grandville stopped it but was penalized: therefore there had to be another play. Fullback Wade crashed through tor the initial score ot the 1937 season. Other touchdowns were made by Schall, Johnson, and Leaf. Dendrino made two conversions and Wood scored a safety.

The Tigers won a Pyrrhic victory, losing the services of high- scoring Marvin Wade, star Tiger fullback. With but little of the sensational. the game was a bruising. batter-and-smash affair from beginning to end. The Heights stopped the highly-touted Creston pass attack, which the preceding season nearly upset the Tiger grid machine by two, long touchdown passes.

The Tigers clashed with a powerhouse in a thrill-splashed night game. The first half was "all Lansing," with Shennan, Brower, McGaige, and Wilder Csafetyl scoring. Sherman scored once in the third period. This runaway may be attributed. in part, to the novelty of playing under lights. Leaf and Peter- son ran and passed Lansing dizzy in the third and fourth quarters. They put together ten tirst downs to tive for Eastem. Lansing made 17 iirst downs to 10 for the Tigers. Luick, Thomas. and Iohnson were outstanding. 94 KOLENIC SKIRTS HEIGHTS END FOR GAIN HEIGHTS AT HOLLAND Quqflgn ,,,,,,. ,.,, I 2 3 4 Final HEIGHTS ..... ..... 5 0 7 0 I 3 HOLLAND ........ ..... 0 7 0 7 14 October 30 . . .

Here again, the Tigers bottled up the opposing star, Matchihsky, on the ground but not in the air.

Ed-, ward Koslosky starred on the line with Leaf. Johnson, and Anderson doing good work in the backfield. Benton Harbor played courageously throughout, but missed their stars of the last few years.

Muskegon's line outcharged and out- fought the Heights line. Over-anxious, the team never settled down to machine-like precision exhibited earlier in tha season. The weary, though courageous, Orange and Black pack struggled through a gruelling game marred by frequent penalties. Almost every Heights player saw action: the Muskie regulars, fearful of something, played the entire game. 95 x 6 ...,-1 1 L TIGER TALES Football, the Great Equalizer Football is the ultimate in sportsmanship, co- operation. good-fellowship, and teamwork. At least we think so, and we think we can prove it. Where else could you find Poles, Czechs, Hungarians, Austrians, Norwegians tworking under a Swedish coach, tooll. Germans. and Frenchmen working in perfect harmony? Regard- hss of race or nationality, those boys who try out for the game of football are molded into a compact unit, one group with a single purpose. Their motto, like that oi Dumas' Three Musketeers, might well be: "One for all and all for one." Personal dislikes or prejudices are soon for- gotten in this give-and-take affair. Working ing to block and charge as one, straining every nerve and sinew to achieve, regardless of personal glory or momentary gain,fall this breaks down any petty disagreements which sometimes creep in. When every thought is con- centrated on breaking up the next play. or on executing the next play yourself, you learn to rely on the man next to you for help. He, in turn, relies on you for help. Football is the Great Equalizer . . . no player is allowed to survive simply because he may 96 have "pull," or because he played well the year previous. No man is allowed to "coast" along on his reputation of last week. If a player does well in a crucial game, nevertheless he is on his own again the following Monday: he must start with the rest of the team, that is to say, from "scratch," There is no permanent reputa- tion: heroes are made and tall, and are made again almost from week to week. As soon as a player thinks that he works better by himself, that is the time when he discovers that without his team-mates, he is very little. In many other games, little or no such co- operation is necessary. For example, in certain track events, the individual is dependent only upon his own prowess. He calls for no help nor could he expect any. In baseball, there is more cooperation than that, however: and yet there is even there a spirit of individual play. This may be seen most distinctly, perhaps, in the play of the pitcher who relies on his arm and his general ability. It is well known that a good pitcher is a great asset to a team. ln football, individual play is not to be dis- counted. Yet where can one find a greater de- mand ior the utmost in teamplay? Hn.

FOOTBALL-1937 VARSITY Win. lose, or draw: a Tiger never gives up Tigers Out For Twenty-Ninth Straight! Tiger- Team Smothers Foes! Heights String Runs To Thirty-One! Tigers Out to Preserve Record! What memories those headlines recall--an un- beatable Heights team, a galaxy ot stars, courageous. Last season the Tigers had just one of those assets, courage. They took that courage as a firm foundation and with three veterans as a nucleus built a strong, fighting team that won the respect of every opponent. Despite the "just- average" record the Tigers played before large crowds-and kept those crowds wildly excited until the final whistle, even though hopelessly beaten. A team that loses games and can still draw crowds has something, a something that just evades analysis and description. The personifi- cation of courage embodied in the 1937 Tigers lends a deeper attachment and regard. a myster- ious affection, for their team in the heart of the students. Never noted for its evidences of school- spirit, the Heights this year gave the team their heartiest support. The season was mathematically a success: four won and four lost for a percentage of five hundred. The Tigers punched across one hun- dred tallies as against their opponents ninety-six. This year. as ever before, Coach Johnson de- serves the heartiest praise for developing an in- experienced group into a compact unit. Main- taining a team's fighting spirit, conditioning them, devising plays, and molding a defense, calls for the utmost in brains, patience, and work. It would be foolhardy to predict anything definite for next fall. There are many likely- looking boys who will be there when the first call is issued. There are a number of boys who proved that they can "give it" and also "take it," boys who are being promoted from the reserve team ta the varsity. Whether or not they will be able to fill those large openings left by such boys as Krepps, Dendrino, Koslosky. and Captain Walter Iohnson, is a question. We only wish to imply this much: the boys who will be out there on the field next fall are boys who eat and sleep football: they are football-minded: they love it. In our modest opinion, that means a great deal. Take warning, Southwest Con- ference! We are out for business! We are out to win! Filth Row: Kesteloot, Hegedus, McCormack.

Inexperienced boys were again taken under Coach McKenzie's "guiding arm" and emerged as an organization which played impressively during the '37 season. The "Little Tigers" started the season with a 39 to 0 score against a small but snappy Grand- ville team. A week later the "Cubs" seemed to have lost their offensive punch, played a sluggish game, and lost to the big Kalamazoo team 6 to 0. Creston's Second team came here and was "swamped," 30 to 0, by the Heights Reserves, eager to avenge their previous defeat. In that game the "Little Tigers" probably reached their peak. The blocking and tackling was vicious, and in addition to this they had a bag ot tricks, mainly, puzzling reverses and laterals which completely fooled the enemy team. On November 6 the "Little Tigers" again won by an impressive score, this time over the Grand Haven team, 22 to 0. Benton Harbor was de- feated a week later by a score 12 to 7. The next two games were quite disastrous for the "Seconds": they were tied by Holland 13 to 13. This tie seemed to upset the "Reserves" and they lost the last game to their arch-enemies, the "Little Reds," 13 to 7. After a brilliant first 99 half, the "Little Tigers" were not able to cope with a desperate Muskegon drive which netted the "Little Reds" two touchdowns. Besides their victories, tie, and defeats, the "Little Tigers" accomplished much in displaying to opposing teams their clean and hard playing done in a sportsmanlike manner. Iust Iots: The 1937 Second team line weighed more than any other "Reserve" team in the history of Mus- kegon Heights. The weight oi the line was 1158 pounds. It averaged 165 pounds to a man. The Heights Reserves ranged from 234 pounds, to 118. tGuess wholl They displayed an almost concrete defense, as their record shows. Their opponents could only score 39 points during the entire season while they rolled up 123 points. The Seconds averaged 18 points to a game, whereas op- ponents could only get six.

A Union player is iumping with Anderson. Thomas is in the background waiting for rebound. Improving steadily with every game, the Tigers were in top shape when they met the fast- stepping Grand Rapids Union team in the regional tournament at Muskegon High School gymnasium-auditorium, March 4. The game was close and hard-fought, although the final score was 30 to 23 in favor of Grand Rapids Union. Muskegon Heights trailed the entire game, but not far behind. The Tigers were always nipping at the heels of the Unionites, who proved adept passers. going down the floor two-by-two, slip- ping an occasional overhand shot to a partner, proving the Tigers' undoing. In the third period, Union "went to town." The Tigers rallied late in the same period and again in the fourth quarter, finishing only seven points behind a team that, theoretically at least, was "out of our class! For the past few seasons, the Tigers have been consistently successful in tournament play. It would seem easy enough to prove that the Tiger spirit is there, even when the "going" is roughest. As a whole, the Tiger season was not up to the usual successful standard so far as victories are concerned. The boys worked hard and play- ed hard, but to make matters worse, the field of competition was as fast this past season as it ever is. That is saying something, for in the past few years, the Southwest Conference teams FEVER OFF THE BACKBOARD If you saw the regional, you saw real Tigers play have been outstanding leaders in state basketball. Two bright spots of the season were: first, when the Tigers came within two baskets of beating the powerful Muskegon team: and. second, the Heights-Union battle which was of such high caliber that fans and opponents alike left the game astounded at the play of the Tigers. Few thought the Tigers capable of playing a game of that high order against the clever Union players. One can always find consolation in looking backward, or looking forward. One can look backward on Heights teams which went into the state finals: one can look forward to state championships. It is perhaps wisest, though, to look around at what we have left and what may become of those boys who come up from the second team. There will be four regulars back: Marecek fcaptain-electl. Christensen, Anderson, and Schuster. There will be much good reserve material, some of whom may develop into some- thing of a threat to opposing teams. Coach Iohnson is to be congratulated on the manner in which he succeeded in keeping up the morale of the team in spite of many close and which left the Tigers only hard-fought contests a short distance behind and yet just far enough to lose. Mr. H. A. Kruizenga, who coached the reserve team once more, deserves a great deal of praise for the way he has helped all of the boys trying out for the team. His work has been extremely well done, and done in the spirit of sympathy and understanding so necessary whenever younger boys. especially, are concemed. His record has been good. 100 t CAPTAINS THOMAS AND KOLENIC . . NEXT YEAR In this picture we see Paul Marecek, clever forward of the Tiger varsity team and captain- elect for the season of 1938-39. Although Paul was not mentioned for the All-Conference team, nevertheless he was one of the big reasons why opponents found the going hard when they met the Tigers on the basketball court. As Coach Iohnson said one day in an all-school assembly, "Paul really has his heart and soul in the game." Alter all, that's what makes a champion. Paul has had experience in piloting a quintet, being appointed several times during the past season when it became necessary for Captain Thomas to leave the game. Paul was a star on the Central Iunior High School team a tew years ago, working at that time under Coach C. P. Zeigler. 101 THIS YEAR . . In the picture to the left, Captain Rudy Kolenic, of Muskegon High School, and Captain Iohn Thomas, of Muskegon Heights High School, can be seen shaking hands before the final game of the season between these two rival schools. Captain Thomas did a fine job of holding the Heights team together when the going was tough. At times, without his help, the team might have "gone to pieces." Iohn's alertness and sparkling play were great assets to the Tigers and had a great deal to do with making thrilling games out of contests that might otherwise have been landslides for most of the Tiger conference opponents. Thomas was honored by being awarded a position on the All-Southwest Conference team during the past season. This team is selected by the majority of Conference coaches.

VARSITY BASKETBALL Hoops. my dear! There was little of the sensational in the 1937- 1938 basketball schedule, the Tigers bowing to every conference opponent twice. In the opus at Big Rapids the inexperienced but fighting Heights team eked out a well earned victory. The next week, at home they defeated Manistee. December 24 at Grand Haven the Tigers, handi- capped by injuries and ineligibilities, lost by a big margin. December 30. Benton Harbor in- vaded the Tiger court and managed to squeeze out a victory. The following week, Ianuary 7, Ka1amazoo's league-leasing Maroon G.ants defeated the Tigers in a hard-fought game. Holland won Ian- uary 14 in a rough, thrill-splashed game here. The next day the Tiger basketeers journeyed to Manistee, with Anderson leading the way, eamed their victory. Ianuary 21, Muskegon and Heights staged their usual to-and-fro "Battle of the century" with Muskegon emerging at the long end of the score. Grand Haven's rangy quintet defeated the Tigers Ianuary Z8 in a much closer game than their first contest had been. February 5 the Tigers gathered in the "1oser's purse"--the satisfaction of putting up a game fight against big odds -against the fast-breaking Benton Harbor aggregation. Kalamazoo on its own floor added another game to its conference rec- ord by nosing out the hard-luck Tigers Feb- ruary 11. February 18 Holland and Heights played a hectic, see-saw, many-foul game with Heights losing to Holland in a late period slump. Iohn Schuster was injured in this game. At Muskegon February 28 the local basketball final saw the surprising Tigers come within four points of defeating the starring Big Reds. In the Regional tournament at Muskegon March 10 the Tigers drew Grand Rapids Union's City-Championship team and put up a great fight, but the high, long-passing Unionites put on a third period scoring rally that rolled up a lead that the Heights cou1dn't quite overcome.

RESERVE BASKETBALL . . for men may come and men may go, but we go on forever The Little Tigers were able to win three of their eleven games on the '37-'38 schedule despite the fact that the team lost two regular players. both of whom might have proved stars. The victories were over the Y.M.C.A. team, Grand Haven, and Holland. Despite statistics. none can deny that the Seconds played to win. They had the fight and the spirit. In the majority of games the winning margin was only a few points: so far as "game" was concemed. it was nip and tuck most of the way with the victory never "on ice" at any time. Lack of height undoubtedly accounted for many defeats. This handicap may to some extent be overcome next year when a rangy, experienced team comes over from Central Iunior. Mr. Ziegler's streamlined team from that institu- tion have had a measure of experience and three of the team tower more than six feet in height. The Cubs won their first two games. One might have thought that they were "on their way." Then Fate stepped in. Pickell, who was a regular guard and starred at one time on Central's teams, left school. To make matters worse, so lar as the Reserves were concerned, Sammy Valuck, diminutive, high-scoring forward ace. was lost because his services were so nec- essary to the varsity team. The "Bugaboo" of circumstance took its toll the remainder of the season, although the boys all fought hard and clean. Mr. H. A. Kruizenga is to be highly complimented on the fine way he kept the boys together in the face of two such devastating blows. The boys themselves should be proud to say they were members of the '37-'38 Reserves.

Ed threw the shot 48 feet three inches during the Heights-Fremont meet. This mark is just nine inches short ot the Greater Muskegon record held by George Kimball, 1914. The Muskegon Heights record, previously held by Robert Mc- Comb, was 44 leet, three inches, established in 1933. Iohn Visscher, co-captain with Krepps ot the 1938 track team, is an all-round athlete, starring in football, basketball, and track. His specialty in track is hurdles, and broad and high jumps. With another year to go, Visscher may be tops. BILL CHAPIN. our leading pole-vaulter, started pole-vaulting as a sophomore and is now in his junior year. Bill is a good pole-vaulter and is developing rapidly. With few exceptions, all the meets he has participated in were by no means "push-overs" ior those who opposed him. Bill hasn't reached his peak yet and is expected to rate as one of the leading pole-vaulters in this district next year. The pole vault record is held by August Fabyan, who is now very active in this department at the University of Michigan. Fabyan cleared the bar at ll leet seven inches in 1935. "CRACK" goes the starter's gun, and the run- ners are off. In the above picture the boys are starting out on that long. long. mile. The run- ning oi the mile. and of any race requires a great deal of stamina and perseverance. "Louie" Hemphill ended first in this particular race and he has a great deal oi promise. For the completion ol a mile, a runner must run over tour times around the cinder track: and that is a long way when you run against com- petition. Training lor track builds up the body as well as it teaches sportsmanship. DON HOENECKE, the leading quarter-miler ior Muskegon Heights. seems destined to iollow in the footsteps of other local runners ol the 440. Few boys are physically fitted to run this gruelling event. The moderate time for the 440 in high school is about 54 seconds: the Heights rec- ord is 50.8. Local quarter-milers have always been a threat in this event. In the halt-mile, Ken Lutz is rated as one oi the best in the Conier- ence. Although this is his lirst year of track, he has won the majority oi his races. Williams and Kulikowski, with Lutz, usually dominate this event. All run it under two minutes, 10 seconds. 104 BASEBALL was sponsored as a major school , ,vhmfs . , Qu. -I T W , Qf tl 4 Qlv- J ,-,- fi l i 5, 1 A 'Q sv T-LW LD 'V kfjlzu Q ,g ' 3 1 153 55 " H j:l""""' -V J H 0 I 1 tr -A ,. - wb A L f rv A A 2 "" ,nf I- AQ 1 .

The Tigers were developed from an inexperienced group of boys, many oi whom had never played hard- ball. Dropping their first practice game against Muskegon Iunior College. the Tigers came back strong and finished the season with an impres- sive record. The team uncovered few individual stars. with the possible exception of Paul Mara- cek. brainy catcher who really "works" a pitcher. The picture above shows "Bunny" Anderson. getting a hold of one. 'I'he Davis Tech catcher is waiting for the ball that "never came back." PAUL MARECEK, Bengal catcher. made a cap- able receiver for the Tiger twirlers. Schuster and Marecek appear to be the Heights' star battery.

'l'he Davis Tech third basemen is set to bum the ball home with a few extra pounds ot pressure on it but is too late to catch the Bengal centerfielder. The scene is from the Tech-Heights game played at Schoenberg Field. Mona Lake diamonds, the Tigers' home field. Muskegon Heights played some standout teams during the course of the season and always was impres- sive, even in defeat. The Tigers played Mus- kegon Iunior College's unofficial nine in practice games. 105 TENNIS A strenuous game of agility, patience, and skill . . . A WARM-UP is necessary beiore one begins a strenuous game of tennis. and so Carl Lund, Ir., who is paired with Iames Ruiter as number one doubles, is practicing in the above picture. These boys on the team practiced each night for an hour or so to improve their game so that we have some very good material for next year and the best of prospects for this year. Perhaps you can see by the worried expression on Carl's face that he takes this tennis business seriously. It's no cinch and Mr. Kruizenga, tennis coach, knows it, so he instructs each member of the team with all his patience and skill. THE TEAM has a bright outlook for the rest of the season since they have tied the Grand Haven team twice and have defeated Holland and Muskegon, losing only to Muskegon Iunior College. The team has only Muskegon and Holland left on the line-up. not including the Regional. State, and Conference meets. Our net team is slated to play, as the Oaks goes to press, the follo wing: Regional May 2I Kazuo Holland May 24 There State May 28 Ann Arbor Conference June 4 G. Haven G.

D raw Muskegon May I2 There ......... Won THE OUTLOOK lor this and next year's team is very brilliant, with only two seniors on the squad and two boys, Rudd and Minarovic, out for tennis for their first year. The team, com- posed of three singles and three doubles, is ranked as follows: Pixel, Kooi, and Dickinson numbers one, two, and three respectively: Lund and Ruiter, Rudd and Minarovic, and Dillman and Hirsch, numbers one, two, and three re- spectively. Other boys out ior tennis include Murray, Forberg, Fortier, Newman, Booker, Fair- ris, Dodds. and Damm. These boys are the tennis teams of 1939 and 1940, and are very good. THE TENNIS SEASON ot 1937 was a very suc- cessful one in which we won two matches from Muskegon and also took second place in the Regional Meets and third in the Southwest Conference. Six of the boys who received let- ters in 1937 are hack on the 1938 team: Pixel, Lund, Kooi, Ruiter, Hirsch, and Dickinson. These boys lorm the nucleus for this year's team and are supplemented with some very fine material. There was an insulliciency of courts last year but four more were built at Central Ir. High. This does not alleviate the situation entirely, but it has increased interest in tennis. 106 FOOTBALL 1937 SENIOR LETTER-WINNERS MARVIN OTTO WADE NORBERT LUICK MICHAEL DENDRINO HERMAN KNOLL WALTER CLARE IOHNSON IOHN THOMAS EDWARD KREPPS EDWARD KOSLOSKY TACK LEAF THOMAS PETERSON CALVIN ESSENBERG DON PHELPS RAYMOND FIXEL ROBERT WALKER HAROLD REID RAYMOND REINERTSON 107 To iiii I l EDITORIAL STAFF EDITOR-IN-CHIEF: Earl Schwass ASSOCIATE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF: Bernadette Ross NEWS EDITOR: Harriette Lundberg ASSOCIATE NEWS EDITORS: Paul Landgraf, Mary Ann Davis ASSOCIATE EDITORS: Elaine Reelman, Jeanette Weisenhoier, Iune Westover, Derek Hopkinson Ioan Cavanagh, Iune Currey, Virginia Watson, Mary Strand, Margie Currey, Annajane Yeager.

As subscribers and advertisers are our only source oi income, it means we must have com- plete coordination oi both oi these sources, and we are pleased to say that we have obtained it. This year we have visited not only our adver- tisers of years gone by, but we have also had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with a great many new people and we are happy to say that we have been well received. Although we thoroughly believe that this is a good source of advertising, we also appreciate the fact that there are many outstanding citizens in our business world today, who. as good citi- zens, are doing this for the purpose ot helping our school and community, primarily. By show- ing your good will you have not only helped us to back this school project financially. but also you have shown us the kind of people we are about to do business with in the near future. as solicitors, appreciate the privilege of We, being able to do business with you. This has given us a chance to meet and deal with the advertisers of our publication and this business world of ours. We realize that all of our seniors not had the privilege of soliciting for our have Oaks, so on behalf oi our stai! and fellow work- ers we are taking this chance to thank you not only for ourselves but for all the seniors who are graduating this year.

Weeks, sometimes months, were taken by this combined artist, designer, carver, and iinisher to build the chest. And the girl, taught to sew, to spin, to weave, took years to fill her hope chest with precious things for that happy day when she would start a home of her own. Today LANE, the glorified modem hope chest, brings the hope chest to its richest significance. More beautiful than those of any other age, the LANE Hope Chest provides absolute moth protection and features found in no other cedar chest. Parents, brothers, sisters-come in and see this ideal gift. l MUSKEGQN HEIGHT FUR IT ms co. t 3 49 43333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333!33333 M 61 Sr M it l It I QW it it M it 68 GM ik it If it ll it or ik B li il 62 ii It Ci It It lr lr it it it is Gi Gi it It Il ll lt it it ll l it ll U I ll ll It It It I 3+ 1333 33 333 4233 3333 3333333333 33 QQE3 133 ZFSF3 33 3333 33 3333333 33 333i 33 333i 33 -3!F3 33 3331 33 333 33 333333 33333333 !5i3HB!F3 5353235333333SQSQQQEGGSZSQSQGQSSQSG38333533333333QQEZQZSZBQQSEJ U KIMBALL PIANOS, RADIOS, STANDARD i' NI 33 AND ESTATE ELECTRIC RANGES-TAPPAN 3 426 W' Wesmm Ave" Muskegon GAS RANGES-GIBSON REERIGERATORS C-Heights Schools Little Bud let no grass grow under his feet.

V77 In every period of American History there have heen differing answers to this question. v T T For example, in 1844, Henry L. Ellsworth, United States Commissioner of Patents, said: "The advancement of the arts from year to year, taxes our credulity and seems to presage the arrival of that period when human improvement must end." Commissioner Ellsworth said this before the automobile, the radio, the telephone, the airplane, and the motion picture had arrived. At the very time he spoke, Howe was working on the sewing machine and Goodyear had dis- covered how to vulcanize rubber. Today, as in the days of Commissioner Ellsworth, there may be those who question the possibility of further ad- vancement. But, by no stretch of the imagination can it be said that America has reached the end of invention, improvement and opportunity. Never before has there been such a flood of Aladdin's magic as is now pouring forth from the laboratories of industry. Never before has there been such progress in harnessing the forces of nature: in con- verting everyday materials into products of myriad amaz- ing new uses: in developing time and labor saving machin- ery: in making life more interesting and more worth while. THERE IS TODAY THE DESIRE AND ABILITY TO IMPROVE THE LIFE AND ENVIRONMENT OF ALL AMERICANS. THERE IS NO LACK OF OPPORTUNITY. YOUR FUTURE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT. IT MAY BE A BIT BEWILDER- ING, YES. BUT THE BEWILDERMENT ARISES NOT BECAUSE THERE ARE NO NEW FRONTIERS .... BUT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM.
