How much those words mean to all of us . . . especially to us who are graduating with the Class of '47, Those two words are symbols for an idea, the Muskegon Heights High school idea . . . the spirit that carries us through. It isn't a spirit confined to the cheering section alone. It is an idea that pervades all of our endeav- ors. It is the soul, the life of our school. We feel it in the strains of martial music of the band, vibrating in the memory. We sense it in the methods and manners of our instructors. We hear it in the sweet, strong voices of the a cappella choir. It is with us always in the warmth and loyalty of our friends and class- mates. So we leave you now to thumb through the pages of the 1947 Oaks in company with our little Tiger mascot, "Sroines". He will help you to understand just what we mean.

Peterman, head of the commercial department for the last 26 years and one of the most loyal and hard-working sub- scription advisors The Oaks staff could ever hope to have. Mr. Peterman came to our school when the doors opened for the first time in the fall of 1921. He has been associated with the annual ever since. He was instrumental in publishing the first Oaks, in Iune, 1922. He has always had his heart in our Oaks which, he says, "is the only written evidence of the best years of our lives." Born in Greenville, May 14, 1891, he was gradu- ated from Crystal High school in 1909, attended Alma college, and received a diploma from Ferris institute in 1912. He holds both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree. His teaching ex- perience includes one year of college teaching in Oklahoma State, and 33 years of high school teach- ing, 26 years of which have been spent here at Mus- kegon Heights High school. Added to his fine contribution in teaching commer- cial subjects, Mr. Peterman has been one of our most active faculty members. In past years his Commer- cial club was the school's largest and most active club. During the War Years he was faculty chairman of the War Bond drive. He has sold football tickets for 25 years, never having seen a Tiger game on Phillips field until the fall of 1946 when he sat in the stands for the first time. That is why we dedicate this annual to Mr. Peter- man and say, "Good-by, Mr. Peterman, and thanks for all you have done. Best of luck!" ,Mr 1 4 1 -.. .4 1 l 1 MEMORIAM MR. GAYLE A. CHURCHILL QExcerpts from the eulogy delivered by Mr. E. W. Gillaspy at the memorial service held in the high school.J "Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in the memory." . . . Certain words loom up as most typical of Mr. Churchill's life, and one of these is "faith" . . . he had faith in himself, faith in you students . . . O, how many times was this faith shown! Only the great- est of all music became the basic songs of the choir . . . music of faith, music of God. He had faith in his band. Even when ill, he remarked, "They'll work harder and do better than if I were there!" . . . yet he was also a man of ambition . . . and he had the ever-so- iylnportant guality of winning friends. Lastly, he was an artist, a man o great ta ent in music. We are saddened today by God's will that he shall raise the baton no more -in our high schoolg yet here, today, Gayle Churchill hands to you the baton of faith, ambition, friendship, and, above all, a sense of good music. Be yours to hold it high! W W Q, MINI KL' 4 ,f v W1 umm! SLIPERINTENDENT MR. W. R. BOOKER Mr. W. R. Booker is one of the key-men who have made so many of our objectives possible. Few of us realize what a tremendous task it is to be superinten- dent of schools. Trying to move ahead with the times, yet trying to do what is best for everyone . . . that is a task virtually impossible, yet one which men like Mr. Booker must attempt. ln doing so, he has Won the sincere appreciation and respect of the students, fac- ulty, and townspeople.

Reid Robert VcmDyk rincipal Mrs. Anna Harvath Mrs. Harvath, a gruduaie of this high school, has long ago proved her ef- ficiency in the main office, both as secretary to our principal, Mr. Bolt, and cs office clerk. She has made thousands of friends among the stu- dents and on the faculty. "Indispen- sable" probably best describes her. Mr. C. F. Bolt An Active Leader is just one of the many epithets of which Mr. C. F. Bolt, our friend and principal, is most deserving. Guid- ing the students along the pathway of knowledge, showing them right from wrong, being a good leader and a friend . . . these are just a few of the services Mr. Bolt renders to us and to the community. Being active comes easy for Mr. Bolt. He likes to see pro- gress in our every activity. From football to dramatics, he is there with a helping hand and encouragement. He brings us through with flying colors. FHEU LTY 1' Sw xr east?- Eff' fb- 7 Z7 X c,,r C' " 6 cc' - on Z -72' maqfk-fx MRS. FRANCES BARWIN, MISS JEAN BEAMENDEHFER, MISS DONNA BOLT. A.B.. B. OF ED.

In our sophomore year we began with a mixer. We had a good time at three dances we sponsored. We nearly won the Victory Bond contest, but at the last minute the seniors took the lead and we came in second. We got acquainted with the mid-year sophs at a reception we arranged for them. Neil Frick and Marva Fredricks were our presidents, each serving one semester-good ones they were too! In our junior year we won the Victory Bond con- test. "Cash and Carrie," our junior play was a great success. We sponsored two other dances during the year. Headed by lim Norris, we did ourselves up fine in sponsoring the "Senior Serenade". Our senior year was the best of all. At last we reached that venerable position. We were surely proud when our team won the championship. Cur senior play, "Come Over To Our House", was a hit in spite of the big snow storm. We dedicated our annual to Mr. R. A. Peterman who has Worked dili- gently for the success of our Oaks since 1921. The weeks flew by, and then that important week ar- rived: Baccalaureate came first : then our Class Break- fast. We surely had the underclassmen roaring on Class Day. Finally came that all important night, Graduation . . . Our knees fairly shook as We marched up for our diplomas. Now we are out on the broad highway. So long! Be seeing you! .ne I Page Forty-five Dolores Bleich Margaret Forrest Marcella McGonigle Kathryn Valencourt Charles Votaw Ioyce Colburn Dorothy Gleisner Marion Hinchman Charles Reinertson Marlowe Erickson Nancy Premo Gloria lean Scales Charlotte Porter Glenna Looyengoed Lenore Diepen Ioanne Garland Iames Norris Barbara Lawson Yvonne Iensen Richard Carlson Betty Nutall Ruth Parmenter Ioanne Kohlbeck Robert Charles Martin Ralph Shepard Gladys Nelson Elinor LeRoux Theresa Ostradick Ieanne Booker Iames McKay Robert Blackmer Ruth Ann Strand Ianice Emmons The Upper Third Gladys Buit Iohn Eberley Iune Maycroft Robert Scholtens Donna Dyer lean Kuerth Marian Smith Russell DeYoung Merlin Bush Neil Frick Lyle Stratton Kathryn Scholtens Shirley Lund Lois Parker Donna Zachariason Dianne Hislop Alice Sell Robert Bodnar Beverly Skok Iean Miles Gwendolyn Dixon Gertrude Lila Goodrich Betty Durand Betty Lou Doenges Iohn Workman Ioyce Thoma Beverly Vargo Robert Graff Dean Kessler Clifford Goericke Betty Iune Stratton Louise Lee Delores Goulet Esther Sponaas in 5 will fin R With Honors VALEDICTORIAN SALUTATORIAN BEST CITIZEN Delores Bleich Ioyce Colburn Delores Bleich, valedictorian, achieved the high- est rating in scholarship among all students of the senior class of 1947.

My goodness - look at the headlines - Norris succeeds Frick, who, as Drain Commis- sioner, allowed things to get pretty messy. Look, just below that. My old girl friend, Lois Gathard, Page Forty-eight ifij In , fl AGR 'tim' If -LJ x.,t,,L Ql'f"IJ 4 . .

Ar- rangements for the funeral are being made by the Louise Lee Funeral Home. Her will is being prosecuted by Law- yer Ruth Parmenter in Iudge Bob Scholtens' probate court. She leaves all her worldly goods, a toothbrush and two pairs of bobby-sox, to her life- long friend, Bev. Bohland, the famous mud-pack artist. At the inquest, Iohn Workman, noted dentist, identified her by her upper plate. Those at- tending the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Earl Beam iMrs. Beam is the former lean Mileslg Mr. and Mrs. Paul And- eregg fMrs. Anderegg is the former Barb Koteles now teaching English at Muskegon Heights High Schoollp Mr. and Mrs. Kayle DePoy and their three lovely children fMrs. De- Poy is the former Ieanne Tur- nerlg Miss Ieanne Booker, the famous star of stage and ra- dio now starring in "Bloomer Girl". Pall-bearers were Rich- ard Beckman, Richard Car- son. Richard Klimo, and Rich- ard Hubbell. As she was low- ered gently into her vault, a strange voice was heard to say, "Open the door, Rich- ard." l.00liIllIli flllliifflilll Look at this article: Ierry Heaton was arrested for sell- ing worm-filled apples on the corner of Peck and Broadway. The arresting officers were Bob Blackmer and Warren Appell. He has now confessed that Delores Bleich was his si- lent partner. They will be sent to the Muskegon County jail which is being run by Stan- ley Elliott. C"Oh, I'm so tired. It seems that just about every- body I know is in the news except me."l Look at this story by Glenna Lake, star report- er. There was a fire at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Dietz. Mrs. Dietz is the former Marian Smith, who is working as a secretary at Campbell, Wyant, and "Pehr". S5,000 damage was re- ported by Fire Chief Cliff Goericke. f"Boy, am I hungry!

The prize is a round trip to Fruit- port, all expenses paid. Ioyce Colburn, Mayor of the city, will present her with the key to the city.

C"I hope it does rain. Haven't had a shower for a long time."l Look, Helen Myer's pool hall, "The Academy for the Promotion of Billiard Play- ers", was just raided! Among those who were taken to the "Hoosegow" were Ed Aamodt, Gene Bergklint, Rolla Bailey, Pat Bilka, Doug Beth, Gloria Cox, Beth Dickinson, Gwen Dixon, Lois Dodds, Betty Doen- ges, and Frieda Doll. A wedding reception was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Frank Harrison, nee Gladys Scheel, for Mr. and Mrs. Mike Bollenbach. Mrs. Bollenbach is the former Bev. Koch. The marriage was per- formed in the St. Paul's Church with the Reverend Kathryn Valencourt officiat- ing. Maid of Honor was Di- anne Hislop and bridesmaids included Marian Hinchman, Marian Hudson, Terry Iavin- ski, Barb Mattson, Iune May- croft, and Marcella McGon- igle.

Oh, I see where lim Howell is going to attend a football banquet at Ann Arbor. At the station to bid him good-by was Tenny Lee Williams. Ed- ward Lenoir also attended his departure, which was pre- ceded by a gala farewell par- ry. Here's a story by Iune Bluhm, who seems to be so- ciety editor now. I guess I'll see what she has to say. Quite a few celebrities attended the opening of the famous "Wil- liam Rose's Diamond Horse Collar". Among those attend- ing were the famous tumblers, Duane Buchany and Gladys Buit: and the famous quartet Bowen, Brown, Bullis, and Bush. The All-American Girl's Basketball Team was the guest of the Proprietors, Mar- ianne Takats and Bill Wan- sten. Members of the basket- ball team are: Capt.

It seems as if they're start- ing a new newspaper, "Nel- son's Nosy News". The owner is Ted Nelson, of course. On the staff are lim Knight, Bob Cato, Bob Ray, Doug Ruud, lack Collinge, Margaret Saud- ers, Loyal Cobb, N a n c y Scheel, Iim Duvall, Chet Skiles, Bob Deimel, Helen Hiza, Bill Turrell, Bob Hepburn, Iim Collier, Clark Coon, Iohn Harnyak, Marlowe Erickson, Ray Frens, Bill Carlareau, and Iohn Gill. At last, the sports section! U. of M. H. defeats Army, 12-6. The star pass of the day was thrown by Francis Ruud, and sly .M at 'w , sg? Mt - . I . K9 ,C r I in l is 4- ?

Charles Votaw, Bob Gust, Bill Wood, Ron Zor- atti, Ed Mezynski, Ed Ma- cheta, and Walt Manguem showed good line playing. Coaches, Tom Muriset, Iames M c K a y and Bob Martin looked well pleased with the game. Army star Everett Grandelius failed to kick the extra point. Those who lead the crowd in jeers were Millie Vander- laan, Norma Vander Velde, Glenna Whelpley, Delores Goulet, Lea Wilson, and Glor- ia Wood. I guess that's about all. Oh, I must have missed this fea- ture article. What strange pro- fession these Heights women. get into! Marian lones is going to be a deep-sea diver: Betty Keller, a flag-pole sitter: Phyl- lis Leigh, a Heights Streamlin- er brakernan: Baby-Face Moh- ring, a lady wrestler: Shirley M u s k , a female "private Dick": Gladys Nelson, a win- dow washer at the Empire St. Building in Muskegon Heights: and Donna Zachar- iason, the conductor of the Muskegon Heights Philharmn- ic, Symphonic, Moronic or- chestra. Well, that finishes the pap- er. Looks like everyone has. made something of them-- selves except me. Oh, oh, here comes a cop. I gotta go.

Page Fifty-one VALEDICTORIAN'S ADDRESS by Ilelorrs Blffirlz For us, this is the time of happiness. joy, and optimism We are hopeful and are looking toward the future. But for many graduates of the past 15 years, the occasion was not such a joyful one as this. First, there was the de- pression, when there was no place in the world for youthful workers. Then war, when many graduates could not be present to receive their diplomas. Farewells were said on a note of sad- ness, for some were final. But today there is a place in the business world for young people: and there is no war to take their lives. ln some respects the outlook is much brighter than it was for the graduates before us. The world needs us to live for our country, not to die for it. Even though there is no war, no depression, we still are passing through a mo- mentous time in history. The problems of the world were never greater. These problems will have to be solved soon, and that means that those of us who are just reaching adulthood, will have a share in the solution. Upon our shoulders rests the responsibility of regenerating American patriotism and selling democracy to the world. We must offer a living example of success- ful democracy. We cannot rest upon the laurels of the past and hope that our reputation will carry us' through. We must prove democracy the best government for humankind. Our de- mocracy must of course begin at home, Page Fifty-two but it must not end at home. Our deal- ing with foreign countries must be fair, honest, and helpful. We should help make the United Nations a working example of human cooperation. Before we can handle international obligations on this basis, we must first look critically at our own land and see what is wrong. We must cleanse it, as Christ cleansed the temple, to make it a fit place upon which the dove of democracy may settle. We must puri- fy American standards and morals. We must stand up and fight the forces which are trying to obliterate the American Way of life. Only true belief in and enthusiasm for our way of life can stamp out subversive forces. Let the voice of truly famous Americans lead us. Let our hearts stir and swell with pride as the spirit of Patrick Hen- ry comes from the past to once again rouse Americans to action. Let the calm common sense of Thomas Iefferson guide us, as it did him as he wrote "The Declaration of lndependence." Let us love our fellow men as Abraham Lin- coln did, so we may strive to do our best for all. May the hope and vision- ary mind of Woodrow Wilson guide us when the times seem dark. Let the courage of Franklin D. Roosevelt be a shining example when we face great odds. May the Greatest Power of the universe, Iesus Christ, be our living example as we strive to make the world a better place for all. SALUTATORIAN'S ADDRESS I1 y AI 11 rgn rel I"0r1'6.s't "School Spirit": that is the theme of our senior class yearbook, The Oaks, for 1947. It is something most of us have heard about, but perhaps not all of us have tried to grasp its fullest meaning. What is this "school spirit" we hear so much about? Because it is in truth a spirit, it is difficult to explain. It is an intangable something hard to define: yet we all know it is something which binds us together in every en- terprise, binds us in loyalty to our school, loyalty to our friends. We Sen- iors of the Class of '47 believe now we have discovered what this spirit of the school really is. We can feel it in our hearts, yet find it difficult to make it clear to others except by example. A few years ago, for instance, grad- uation seemed a long way off. The time has passed all too quickly, and now commencement is virtually here. We have made many tried and true friends among both students and teachers here: and we are undoubtedly better persons because of them. We shall cherish these friendships all our lives. During these years of working and playing together, we have developed a sense of loyalty to our school. If we have not always shared our burden of responsibility, it may have been our own fault. Many have sincerely shared their responsibility, and have given of their talents for the benefit of the entire student body. We have shown each other the way to live. In a word. loyalty is the key-note of school spirit, without sincerity, enthusiasm is a mere sham, only "a tinkling cym- bal." Now we have come to the place where our loyalties must be broad- ened, our circle of responsibility will be widened and deepened. If we can carry out our obligations in this larger life which is almost upon us, in the same mannerand with the same spirit which has characterized our endeav- ors in high school days, then surely we can make ourselves valuable mem- bers of this community-or any com- munity. A man or a woman is meas- ured in terms of his contribution to the progress of civilization, not merely in terms of money or show. This is the reason why, in this age of atomic power, commercialism, and machinery, that we must not forgetqour highest loyalty, a devotion which transcends everything, devotion to God and His program for the univer- sal brotherhood of man. Narrowness, jealousy, and selfishness lead only to conflict between friends, neighbors, and nations. We have high hope, therefore, that the same spirit which we have known here in Muskegon Heights High school, will serve as an example and an inspiration for us all in the great scheme of life just ahead.

All the band members as well as the rest of the school felt the loss of Mr. Churchill, who passed away shortly after the Christmas holidays, very keenly. We are sure, however, those who return next fall will be as loyal to Mr. Maynard Buck as they were to Mr. Churchill. GLEE CLUB 4th row--Walworth, I.

The Glee Club, comprised of all girls, has always been a profitable and popular organization in our school. lt carries school credit and us- ually meets every other day during the Week in the high school auditorium at 10 o'cock. Mr. Maynard Buck is the director. Any girl who likes to sing will cer- tainly enjoy the Glee Club. It is the best place to learn the "tricks of the trade", and provides a background for those wishing to participate in the work of the A Cappella Choir. Each girl receives valuable individual in- struction, and learns to sing her indi- Page Seventy-six vidual part for which her voice is best suited. The girls also learn to harmon- ize, and have special daily singing drills. They sing the literary classi- cal music such as "Nightfall", "Pale Moon", "The Robin in the Rains", and others. Much of it produces a Wealth of personal pleasure and satisfaction which the girls would not exchange for anything in the World, even though they get school credit for their work. Bonnie Iohnson is the president. Donna Iohnson is the vice-president. Gwennie Carlson is the secretary- treasurer.

Our A Cappella Choir is an organ- ization of which the whole school is justly proud. It was developed by the late Mrt Gayle Churchill, director, and has about 46 members, most of Whom are senior and sophomores. Members are chosen by audition and voice classification, and not simply by en- rollment. The past year was one of the most active and interesting, and yet one of the saddist, owing to the unexpected demise of Mr. Churchill. The Choir sang for school assemblies, for the Woman's club, and for church organ- izations, luncheon clubs, at the annual Christmas assembly, the Norge Con- vention, for Grossman's store, and over the air through the WKBZ micro- phones. Socially, the Choir members have lots of fun. A sleigh ride and a dance were two of the events of the year, as Well as a trip to Lansing for the state music festival. Officers of the choir were: President, Bob Ribeskyg secre- tary, Charlotte Porter: and treasurer, Dianne Hislop. The choir is now under the direction of Mr. Maynard Buck Who has had Wide experience in teaching high school and college music. Page Seventy-seven ORCHESTRA Handy, Proctor, Thom, Klimo, Mr. Buck, Strand, Schmidt, Scales. Owing to the untimely passing of Mr. Gayle A. Churchill, our music dir- ector, the orchestra was not able to reach its usual peak of fine perform- ance. . During the last few years, it was considered wisest, under our partic- ular music program, to limit the or- chestra to what is known as a "string ensemble." Furthermore, wind instru- ments were needed for a larger march- ing band. So, while the band was in- creasing, the orchestra was decreas- ing. A third reason for so few members in the orchestra probably is owing to the fact that few grade school children Page Seventy-eight are taking instrumental music lessons as in past years. In other Words, the music depart- ment in high school is a tremendously large job for one director. Mr. May- nard Buck, who succeeded Mr. Church- ill, has been planning for the future. He would like to see our school rep- resented by a fine orchestra as well as an excellent band and choir. Even if it requires five years, the job should be done if our musical education de- partment is to rank with others in the state. Let us all cooperate with Mr. Buck and the Board of Education to the fullest extent. We want and need good music. .DEBATE TEAM We are proud of the work of our de- bate team this year and we have good reason to be. The affirmative debat- ers Were: Dorothy Gleisener and Dav- id Wampler, the only members who had previous debating experience. The negative was composed of Doug- las Cutler and Dean Kessler. Because of having won five of eight contests with various schools of the state, they acquired the Detroit Free Press Award for outstanding debating. They also succeeded in entering the regional eliminations at Kalamazoo in which they were matched to debate against Hudsonville, and lost. Incidentally the Hudsonville Debate Team was de- feated in the State Championship de- bate team in 1946. Thanks to the excellent coaching of Miss Iulia Royse and Mr. E. W. Gill- aspy, the team did remarkably well. The question debated this year was: "Resolved, that the Federal govern- ment should provide a system of com- plete medical care available to all citizens at public expense." On April 18 in Muskegon Heights High auditorium, local contestants won three firsts and two seconds in the District contest. Ieanne Booker took a first place in dramatic declamaion, Betty Downey captured a first in oratorical declama- tion, David Wampler tcok a first in extempore. Iayda Garland took second in or- atorical declamation and Douglas Cut- ler took second in extempore.

Each year our school holds a series of forensic contests. The purpose of these contests is to stimulate interest in speech and to develop students with special talents in that field. In our speech contests this year a large number of students participated. Competition was keen. First place in the Original Oratory Contest was tak- en by Charles Votaw. His oration was entitled "Basis for a Real Peace." Dor- othy Gleisner took second place, and Delores Bleich, third. Extemporaneous Winners w e r e : First, Douglas Cutler, and second, Dav- Page Eighty-two id Wampler. Their topics were "How to Get Along with Russia" and "Porta1 to Portal Pay," respectively. Betty Downey was the first place winner in Oratorical Declamation. Sec- ond place went to Iayda Garland, and third, to Shirley Hauke. Jeanne Booker captured iirst place in Dramatic Declamation. Shelley Baldwin won second place, and Bar- bara Platte, third. The directors of speech activities are Miss Iulia Royse and Mr. E. W. Gill- aspy. STYLE SHO -': , ww, ' 4? Qs? ' W STYLE SHOW The students here as typical clothing students, have had four semesters of clothing under dir- ection oi Miss Mina Morris. They have learned the importance of good judgment in the selection of textiles and determining their needs. Girls are taught that clothing which simply hangs, and is not Worn, is a sign of failure as well as a Waste of money. Choosing suitable styles and materials for individuals requires careful study of the principles of art, harmony, balance, proportion, rhythm, and emphasis. "Wise spending is more impor- tant than the most diligent sav- ing." Page Eighty-three CAFETERIA Working in the cafeteria for the first semester were only six girls, each having their own duties to perform with a helper, Mrs. Lawrence, who came in every day at 10 o'c1ock. The 11 o'c1ock Foods IV class prepare the food every day for the cafeteria. There are approximately 150 students every day to serve. They serve a hot dish, sandwiches, salad, dessert and milk: each day something different for variety. The second semester there were two Foods IV classes. One met at9o'clock and the other at 11. Each class helped prepare for the lunch. Three girls in the ll o'clock class serve at noon. Miss Ruth Madison is the foods instructor. Page Eighty-four 15 'M M ,Mb LU 5 AH,.!S-Q gg- M1' IV N!!

Representatives were sent to a state- wide council meeting in Lansing. where it was learned that our school is among the leaders in student gov- ernment. Miss Donna Bolt and Mr. Iames Ver- duin, who have sat in on every council meeting for the last three years as advisors, deserve a great deal of cred- it for the efficient manner in which our council operates.

MEMORIAL We lmzie rome lo dedicate a portion of that field as rz final resting-place for those wlzo here gave their lives that that nation might live." -A braham Lincoln Cn a cool, crisp October evening preceeding the Muskegon Heights- Grand Rapids Union football game, Mr. Iames Coscarelli, of this city, pre- sented the high school Athletic Asso- ciation with a beautiful stone memor- ial and bronze tablet commemorating the ten MH letter-winners who sacri- ficed their lives for their country dur- ing World War ll. It was a fitting gift, gratefully accepted by the school from a loyal fan and friend of youth. Plans for the memorial grew and took shape during the summer of 1946, when Mr. Coscarelli first discussed the idea with C. F. Bolt, principal. The Page Ninety-two stone, a huge boulder obtained from Casnovia, was artistically created into a memorial by Mr. Merritt Corbus and now rests in the southwest corner of Phillips field. "l knew all of these boys and all were of good moral character, of ex- cellent scholastic standing and athletic abi1ity," Mr. Coscarelli told us by way of comment. "It was an honor to have been associated with them, and to have the memorial accepted by the school." A close-up of the bronze tablet makes all of the names clearly legible in the photograph above.

VARSITY FOOTBALL One of the many outstanding improve- ments added to the brilliantly lighted Phil- lips Field was the electric scoreboard pic- tured at the left. Other factors leading to the betterment of the gridiron was the construction of a new set of bleachers and a retaining wall on the east side. Many additional structures of this kind may be added in the future. Page' Ninety-four STATE CHAMPIONS G. R. CRESTON-Fullback Grandelius galloped over for all three touchdowns and a 19 to 6 triumph.

The out- ccme was in doubt until the final whistle. 120-l2l GRAND HAVEN-In a rather poorly played, ragged contest, the Tigers' victim this time was the Blue and Gold, to the tune of 19 to 6. C19--61 BENTON HARBORfThe Tigers defeated B. H. 19 to 12 after a 12-12 deadlock at the half. lt was a "knockem-down, drag 'em out" affair, vicious on the forward walls. Harbor's passing was almost fatal. C19--121 BATTLE CREEK-After losing Anderegg with a fractured leg, the Tigers ex- ploded with new power, trampling the Cereal-:ity lads 19 to 6. It was a clean, hard game. 119-Sl MUSKEGON- ln a sea of mud at Hack- ley Staiium, the Tigers defeated Mus- kegon. arch-rivals from across the tracks, 7 to 0.

Union .... .. 7 1 24 This year our Tiger Seconds com- pleted one of their most successful seasons in recent years, winning the Southwestern Conference crown. Under the watchful eye of Coach David R. McKenzie and Assistant Coach Larry Schaude, the Little Tig- ers were able to win seven games and tie one. Of course, with such material as Frank Howell and Captain George Iurkas in the backfield, and outstand- ing linemen like Iohn Nedeau, lack Page One hundred Kalamazoo ....... 19 1 20 Grand Haven ..... 0 1 33 Benton Harbor 6 1 26 Grand Haven ..... 6 1 26 Muskegon ...... 6 1 20 Venne, and Bob Johnson, the coaching staff did not have to look far for boys around which to build their team. The Tigers were held to a tie in their first game, but held the upper hand for the remainder of the season. The only major injury that occurred was a broken wrist received by Gerald I acobson in practice session one after- noon. Congratulations, fellows, on such a fine season.

HOLLAND-In a return game, the im- proved Bengal Seconds shut out the Holland Reserves 12 to 0. A fine running and passing attack Was dis- played. UNION--Coach D. R. McKenzie's Little Tigers romped to a 24 to 7 victory over a big, rugged Union team. Capt. Iurkas scored all four tallies, and Frank How- ell aided with an aerial attack that amazed, completing every one of his passes. KALAMAZOO-The O r a n g e and Black clad Little Tigers traveled to Ka- zoo to engage in their most thrilling game of the season, winning 20 to 19. lack Venne, standout Tiger guard, blocked the conversion that would have tied the game. GRAND HAVEN-The Bengal steam roller ran wild on Phillips Field flat- tening a rugged Buc eleven 33 to 0. The Tiger offense clicked with perfect precision, the defense showing much improvement. BENTON HARBOR--Coach D. R. Mc- Kenzie's vicious Tiger Cubs tore the Benton Harbor reserves to shreds, de- feating them 26 to 6. Three tallies were registered in the first eight minutes, after which Reserve Cubs played much of the game. GRAND HAVEN-The inspired Tigers trimmed the Havenites 26 to 6 in a return engagement played on Green Hill field. The only Buc score came late in the fourth period against sec- ond and third string players. MUSKEGON-Bringing down the cur- tain on one of its most successful sea- sons in recent years, the Tiger Seconds walloped the Muskies 20-6. The Ben- gals were led by Frank Howell, speedy colored halfback who scored all the tallies on long runs. The vicious char- ges of the Tiger line and brilliant play of the backfield was too much for the Muskies to withstand. Page One hzmdred one VARSITY BASKETBALL 1946-47 ft -lbz 1 at S ' .

Due to lack of height, loss of Paul And- eregg, star guard injured in football, and the loss of Everett Grandelius, a mid-year graduate, the Orange and Black were un- able to hit their stride. Each game Was fought hard and clean, and the Tigers won the respect of every opponent they met, including Grand Rapids South, City Champions, who edged the Tigers by only two points, 26 to 24, in the Regionals.

Paced by Captain Frank Howell, the Re- serves, though reputedly the "underdog" on many occasions, gave out with the "do or die" spirit. Because of this fine showing of determination and fight, the Tigers gained much in experience and reputation which may benefit them greatly in the years to come. Besdes Howell, Iurkas, Nedeau, Bob Iohn- son, Zom, G. and D. Iacobsons, Sietsema, Bramble, and Hunter formed the backbone of the team. They all showed definite improve- ment as the season went along.

Iohnson. The pitching staff is headed by veterans Fred Moeller, Neil Frick, and Alan Kushner. all with much experience behind them. It was rumored there were other younger pitchers on the way up when this section of the annual was being printed. These three boys, all good ball players, were available for other posi- tions on the field if needed. Alvia Cater and Ray McLean, both veterans, round out the returning five. At the time this was printed, new prospects were working out. It was hard to judge abil- ities of players so early in the season but it appears as though 1947 would be successful.

The result was that the team captured only one team victory, that being over a strong Fremont squad by a score of 59 to 45. After that the Tigers absorbed defeats from Allegan, Hol- land, Kalamazoo, and Muskegon. It was al- ways the superior number who won, though the Tigers gave them all a tough battle. Bob Werner, whose specialty was the 440, was an important cog: with Rogers, in the half- mile: DePoy and McGahee, in the dashes: and Goericke, in the mile, forming the nuc- leus of the team. Page One hundred six 1947 Owing to the fact that the publication of this year's annual necessitated an early dead- line, we are unable to present the results of this season's meets. However, as we write this, a squad of about 40 boys have turned out for practice, with four lettermen retuming from last year's team. Bill McGahee, dash man who competed in the State meet: Goericke, miler: Stibitz, shot- putter: Ribesky, half-miler: Bob Martin, hurdlerz and a newcomer, Tom Iohnson, "utility" pow- er, formed the squad. Coach Dave McKenzie was expecting much from certain sophs, and here's hoping that a victorious season will have been experienced by the time the fighting Tiger thinclads, as well as we editors on The Oaks, lay down our work for the year. TENNIS TEAM Top Row-Coach Dahlberg, Johnson, Sturgis, Courtright, Caughey, Bredin. Knopf, Proctor, Nordstrom. Front Row-McDowell, Sholtens, Graff, Votaw, Erickson, Hansen, Nedeau, Wiganusky. 1946 The Tfger tennis team, though loaded with ability, lacked the necessary competitive ex- perience and fared rather badly, with two wins and five defeats. Miles Bunk was the coach. At Grand Haven, the Tigers succumbed to a 4--3 defeat with Votaw, in singles, and Johnson and Hansen, doubles, capturing hon- ors. The Tigers outplayed Holland to win 4-3: then came defeats by Kazoo, 7-0, and Benton Harbor, 5-2. The Tigers beat Grand Haven, 4-3, and lost to Holland 6-1. In the Regionals the Tigers lost the first day. Leading players were: singles, CU Votaw, C23 Beattie, CSD LeBoeuf, C47 Doll: doubles, CD Iohn- son and Schmalzer, C23 Hansen and Graff, C39 Turrell and Caughey. A powerful and fairly well balancedatennis squad will hit the courts this year in an at- tempt to regain some of their lost prestige after a disastrous 1946 season. Under the tutelage of a new coach, Ernest Dahlberg, who also was assistant football coach in 1946, the squad was expected to go a long way as this volume of The Oaks went to p1ess. Led by Charles Votaw, a consistent winner for two years, and aided by Bob Graff. Bob Scholtens, Bill Turrell, Harold Hansen. and others, the team entered the Conference race with serious intentions of giving the league leaders a lot of good competition. The majority of games scheduled were to be played away from home, a factor in lessen- ing local interest in the game. Home games in any sport do much to create local enthus- iasm. Page One hundred seven GIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATICN Girls enrolled in physical education classes under direction ot Miss Max- ine Cobb began the season with soc- cer, volleyball, and tumbling. Later, intramural basketball became the fav- orite. A word of explanation here will help to describe the plan used this year, which was a little different from that used previously. Instead of having mixed teams, each team was com- posed solely of students of one class- ification-Seniors, Iuniors, or Sopho- mores. About B0 or 65 girls came out for the teams, making it one of the largest intramural basketball classes Miss Cobb has ever directed. The Seniors Won the championship with a brilli- "MH" LETTERWINNERS ant record, capturing every game they played. Members of the Senior Team were: Pat Gardner, Neoma Schultz, Pat Mi- les, Joyce Colburn, Pat Bilka, and Mary Ellen Dobb, During the spring months Cso-called because usually at this time of year the Weather becomes Warm and balmyll ping-pong, bowling, baseball, tennis, and track became the daily for their proficiency.

Stories must first be gathered, a process which develops tact, accuracy, poise, and alertness. Then they must be written in newspaper style, typewritten, set up in type, proof-read, and made up ready for printing in our own school print shop. Draw- ings and photographs must be sent to the en- gravers with instructions for reducing or en- Mr. Murray larging. The last step, the actual printing, is done under the direction of Mr. C. F. Koehn and the boys in the print shop. Mr. W. E. Murray is our Acorn editorial staff adviser. Mr. Cobb takes the pictures and Miss Keillor, art teacher, supervises drawings. Mr. Peterman and Mr. Bolt are business advisers. lt is work, but is so enjoyable and so sat- isfying to those who do the work, that it be- comes a facinating subject for study. Each year, we hope, the little Acorns will continue to grow into bigger and better Oaks. Back Row-Mr. I. V. Cobb, Langlois, F. Ruud, Mr. W. E. Murray, Moeller, Tirrn-ner, Nelson, Mr. C. F. Koehn, I.

Page One hundred ten SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS The school newspaper, The Acorn: The Heights Record, The Muskegon Chronicle, and Radio WKBZ have provided an opportunity for interesting writing and acted as a stimulus to better work throughout the year. They have helped develop in the journalism students the qualities of co-operation, tact, accuracy, toler- ance, responsibility, and initiative. The students in the Iournalism classes were assigned certain "beats" to cover. The fin- ished stories were turned in to one of the editors, who edited them and had them typed. They were then published, or given to the girls to broadcast over WKBZ each Wednes- day afternoon at 4:00. These girls were Ioanne Kolbeck, Ruth Ann Strand, Ieanne Booker, and Ioan McConnell. We hope that these means of publishing the school news have helped promote co-operation between parents and the school, and increase school spirit. Back Row-Cato, B. I.
