A GLANCE AT OUR SCHOOL, I OUR TOWN, OURSELVES y The 1950 Oaks is designed to show the close relationship which exists between the school and the community. Some of us think ot the city and the school as two separate units. Actually, they are closely knitted together and work hand in hand. It you will follow the yearbook carefully, we think you will readily see this contin- uity. As students in high school we are pre- paring ourselves for our future lives in this community. The more we learn at school, and the kind of moral character we de- velop here, later will decide what kind of citizens We will be. It may even deter- mine the part we shall play in the life of this city after graduation. MUSKEGON HEIGHTS HIGH SCHOOLI MUSKEGON HEIGHTS t MICHIGAN .. ., D E D I C A T I D N MR. RUSSELL L. RAKESTRAW We, the Senior Class of Nine- teen Hundred Fifty, dedicate this volume of The Oaks to Mr. Russell L. Rakestraw. ln so do- ing, We express in a small Way our appreciation of his untiring efforts for the students of this school. We are sincerely grate- ful for his understanding and helpful attitude during his twen- ty-one years as a member of our faculty. Mr. Rakestraw, a chemistry and physics instructor here, is more than that. He is a faithful, active, conscientious teacher and a friiend to all of his stu- dents. We extend to him our fondest hopes for his future suc- cess and happiness, Whether in the classroom or in the north Woods he has always loved so Well. 5 wfww' f ..

A low-lift and high-lift pump system brings water to our city by gravity from a hill- top. Muskegon Heights rates high among the leading industrial areas of Michigan. Our factories are among the best equipped and most productive in the nation. We also have a fine school system. Our stu- dents stand high in colleges and universities, in business, and in in- dustry when they leave. A new post office, filtration plant, and improved law enforcement system are among our recent accomplishments. Yet, despite all the things we have, there are things we lack: a civic auditorium, a beautiful city park, a hotel, a new city hall, sta- tues, a museum, a Little Theater, and many other cultural advantag- es many cities now have. Some day, who knows, these dreams may be- come realities. It is up to us. Our music department has been improving fast in recent years under guidance ot Mr. Liddicoat and Mr. Buck. All groups rated high in contests. Speech and dramatics, as well as radio, provide students with ample op- portunity for seli-expres- sion. Directors are Miss Boyse, Mr. Gillaspy, and Miss Wetteroth. Reading for profit and for recreation opens doors to new lands, new exper- iences, and new oppor- tunities. Miss Kidwell is our friendly librarian. A CITY OF PROGRESSIVE GOOD GOVERNMENT Although the police de- partment has been re- modeled, the remainder of the City Hall is antiquated. A new building would be an asset to our commun- ity. Our city government, the "mayor- council" type, is headed by Mayor Basil QMickeyl O"Grady. Other elec- ted officials are: city treasurer, city assessor, city judge, three council- men-at-large and three city council- men, one from each ward. The city council meets on the se- cond and fourth Monday of the month. One of the functions of the council is to approve the appoint- ments of the Mayor. These appoint- ments include city attorney, city clerk, city superintendent, engineer, health officer, chief of police, chief of the fire department, five members of the board of review, two consta- bles, and members of the city recre- ation and planning commissions. Our council has always been forward-looking and sincere. Our police department today is one of the finest in the state. So is our fire department. We have improved streets, new homes, and efficient management. In the future we hope to have many other things, such as a civic auditorium, parks, and im- provements to make this a better city. Social studies include history, civics, American government, econom- ics, primarily. English and other languages of course are "social" in function. These studies help make good citizens. History, as such, is a compulsory subject in the junior year. The study of history teaches students about success and failures of the past so he can look with judgment to the fu- ture.

McNutt of the WMC called this area the place which "did the outstanding job in America" in production of implements of war. To- day 60 per cent of work- ers are employed in in- --s dustry here. The City of Muskegon Heights is truly a "city of industry and busi- ness" in Western Michigan. Five industrial plants from Muskegon Heights are listed on major stock exchanges throughout the nation: Campbell, Wyant, and Cannon Foundry company, once our largest independent motor casting produc- er: Sealed Power corporation, pis- tons and piston rings: Norge divi- sion of Borg-Warner corporation, refrigerators: Manning, Maxwell, and Moore, Inc. CShaw-Box Crane and Hoistlg Iohn Wood Manufactur- ing company, gasoline pumps. Muskegon Heights has been an industrial city ever since it was in- corporated as a village in 1891, and later a city in 1903. It has grown to a population of 19,500 and occupies a land area of 1,899 acres. The Muskegon County Airport which is located near the southern edge of the Heights has an area of 576 acres and represents an invest- ment of S800,000. It is located on Capital I-lirline's main line - Wash- inton, D. C. to Minneapolis - and is one of the nation's tops in volume of air travel on a per capita basis. Machine shop is a course which teaches the student the fundamentals of modern machine prac- tice. It is the training ground for future foremen. Drawing, tracing, and making blueprints in both machine and architectural design is an important part of this course. Typewriting is not the only course offered in commerce, but it is a pop- ular one and one which often leads to success. A CITY OF RELIGION. GOOD HOMES. RECREATION With its 22 churches and 12 de- nominations, Muskegon Heights may indeed be called a city of re- ligion. Churches make the World a good place. What kind of world would We have without them? Opportunities abound for health- ful recreation: swimming, dancing, picnicing, skating, moving pictures, youth centers, baseball school, bas- ketball, all sponsored by City Recre- ation. C. P. Ziegler is director. Mr. Harry Bomers, councilman, is chair- man. Foods and clothing are taught in the home econ- omics department. Food, to be good, must be nour- ishing, ta s t y , interesting. Clothing deals with tex- tiles, designs, fashions, se- lection and care. Ping-pong, s o m e t i m e s called table tennis, is a popular sport at high school although it seldom "rates" in the Southwest Conference. This is cz community of many fine homes. Central as well as suburban sec- tions are constantly im- proving. Pride in homes often means pride in good citizenship. A CITY OF GOOD SCHOOLS AND GOOD CITIZENS "Students of today will be the citizens of tomorrow." With this thought in mind, our community is constantly striving for better schools. Below is an artist's sketch, drawn by Ioan Griffes, art editor, of our public-spirited citizens of today who direct education in our town for the citizens of tomorrow. Mechanical drawing, both machine and ar- chitectural designy woodshop: and welding: all these as well as printing, contribute to our industrial arts program. This community needs such courses. Members of our Board of Educa- tion as well as the teachers who are hired by Superintendent W. R. Book- er are well aware of their full re- sponsibility. :Each does his best at all times to promote a spirit of healthy competition, fairness, and sympathetic helpfulness and en- couragement. Good character and a feeling of "be1onging" is believed to be as important as the technical- ities of the text-book. A democratic spirit of learning prevails. The Oaks is one example of co-operative ef- fort. Liberty, the students learn, means privileges as well as sacri- fices. . lr Z! X g 1 E' 'Ne ". TI L-Q7 ga 440111 Page Fourteen S. E. Strand O. V.

During SUPEBINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS MR. W. R. BOOKER Mr. Booker, of "Hoosier" origin, was graduated from the University of In- diana and taught English at Kalamazoo college be- fore coming to Muskegon Heights as Superintend- ent. During the last two de- cades, he has proved him- self to be an extremely capable and progressive administrator. Besides be- ing superintendent, he has participated in a lead- ership capacity in many city projects. We Seniors extend our thanks and best Wishes for his future administration in this community. In this city there are the following public schools: High School, Central Iunior High, Central Grade School, South Park, Lindbergh, Edgewood, Glendale, and Roosevelt. Another school would be a good thing because of the already crowded conditions in classrooms.

BOLT Mr. Bolt is the first principal this school ever had. At one time he was principal in Bis- marck, N. D. He holds an M.A. degree and was graduated by the Universities ot Michigan and Wisconsin. More important to us seniors, perhaps, is the fact that he has been our friend, a friend loyal to our school. Mrs. Anne Harvath, our "of- fice ace", was assisted last semester by Shirley Smith, for- mer Heights High student. Mrs. Harvath also is ct local gradu- ate. They kept Mr. Bolt's office in tip-top shape. Smith, Mrs. Harvath . el if? ' ii' 124035 m' ,,,,..-'mb -as , firm, 3' 5 il Ill -.' lgfx. 'JI .

Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted: nor to find talk and discourse: but to weigh and consider. For reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man. And therefore, if a man Write little, he had need have a great memory: if he confer little, he had need have a present wit: and if he read little, he need have much cunning to seem to know that which he doth not. - Sir Francis Bacon, "Of Studies" For three of the four years in high school, a student is required to take English: however, it may be true that the full value of English is not ap- preciated until the student goes out into the world to use it. English cours- es include spelling, punctuation, gram- mar, rhetoric, literature, and journal- ism. Every phase of language, Written and spoken, is carefully studied.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to sup- port its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies." Our history department includes a course in world history, American his- tory, civics, and economics. The civics and economics courses each require one semester, while the two history courses require two semesters each in order to complete. A year of American history and a semester of civics are required of every student. When these courses are completed, the average student has a much broader knowledge of the world and of America and its past history, our form of government, and of social man and how he makes his living. These courses are essentials in helping every student to appreciate his heritage out of the past and to avoid the pitfalls of the future. gzpyyzpirggpsgi, AB.. n.s. Miss JULIA norss. ns.

"The last two decades have witnessed changes that make neces- sary an entirely new order of ability in business life. Those changes demand a greatly superior training. - Frank A. Vanderlip. "The business student sees in the past the explanation of the pres- ent and the key to the future." -R. W. Smiley "An ideal business man is one who knows how to keep his ear to the ground without lying down on the job." - I. B. Swinney. The Commercial department, under the capable administration of Mr. Roy A. Peterman for the last quarter of a century, has established an enviable record. Mr. Peterman assures us that offices of leading industries in Greater Muskegon are always happy and will- ing to receive graduates of this de- partment. Commercial arithmetic, typewriting, bookkeeping, office train- ing, are all important subjects. Com- mercial law is a course which can benefit anyone, also.

It has created the tools of our modern life. But the Science on which we depend for all our com- forts and conveniences is no cold and remote force, acting on us imper- sonally from without. Science is human knowledge gained slowly and painstakingly by men like ourselves and applied by them to the service of mankind. All down the ages there have been moments which made history. An invention which was hardly noted at the time, save by the few far-seeing men who prejected it to us for the beginning of a new epoch in the life of man. Early man invented the wheel, modern man has invented machinery to turn the wheels of the world. -- Marion Florevzcc Lansing Science and mathematics are im- portant subjects to those students who are planning to go to college. Each of these require keen thinking and accuracy: their study will help you to acquire these virtues. These are also helpful to students who are not going to college but plan on going right to work after graduation. ln the science course is included biology, chemistry, and physics. The math course offers algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and advanced courses related to each. A foundation for these is usually ob- tained in Iunior High. l. K. THORNLEY, A.B., M.S. L. N.

In such an age the activi- ties of people are dependent largely upon science, invention, and skills. Industry affects our daily living in multiple Ways: and its problems lie at the base of many of our social and economic ones. It is the study of industry, professional pursuits, home maintenance, and others, which constitute industrial arts. Its purposes are to develop citizens who have some understanding of the basic processes of production, of the mater- ials used, and of the problems of the Workers who produce them. It aims to train students to be efficient producers, wise consumers, and appreci- ative of the inter-relationships of all occupations." - jolt n Callahan Industrial arts includes the study of graphic arts, Woodshop, machine shop, and mechanical drawing. Space is limited and therefore not all stu- dents who Wish to enroll, may do so. Home economics includes foods and clothing, as Well as the operation of the cafeteria. The skill and art of cook- ing as Well as the study of Well bal- anced meals, adequate nourishment, vitamins, and related subjects are in- cluded. In clothing the students have major and minor projects, study color and design. lfVV5fId,fgf,fLER' BS' g',,Z,,Iff3Effff,S All these subjects constitute, in later Senior Class Advgsffy Printing AdviS01xOakS, life, the trades, skills, and vocations W t Michi an o e e coin - - - esem 9 9 United Typotheme School which make life useful and profitable. of Printing Western Michigan College L.

Culture is the knowing of the best that has been said in the world, and the best that has been thought in the world. This meaning of the word "culture" is not incompatible with a broad knowledge of books, a deep insight into the arts, and a clear outlook over the field of languages. Through the media of arts, music, languages, physical education, a full rounded course of education may be secured. - Ideas compiled by Domlhy Gm'b1'ec'l1t, '50 Y l H. A. KRUIZENGA, MHS.

Some of us know now that we could have done more for our high school by being more ac- tive. Some of us are happy that we took part in school affairs as much as we did. Here we have made many life-long friends, and we will cherish these friendships all our lives. Now our responsibilities will be widened. Some of us will go on to college: some will go into posi- tions in business or industry, or else- where. School has prepared us for living. lt has given us a good found- ation upon which to build a life. It is now up to us to make good, where- ever we go. Courtesy of The Muskegon Chronicle Page Twenty-jive SENIOR GRADUATING CLASS OF 1950 The Graduating Class of l950 can well be proud of the record it has established throughout its care er. ,Some of the reason why lies in the excellent leadership of Kenneth Cutler, president of the class for three consecutive years. Owing to a late start in the sophomore year, the class sponsored only one party. During the Iunior year, however, there came the Iunior- Senior Prom, "Starlight Sonata", held in the school gym: the class party called the "Iunior lump". The latter was a very successful affair so far as fun goes, with ping-pong, dancing, and cards for entertainment. Anvlsnas During the Senior year, the class undertook a large program of outside A activities, beginning with a hard-times dance. On Dec. 20 they put on a Christmas Formal soon to be followed by the Senior Play, "Fog lsland." In Ianuary, along came "Stag Night", a dress-up dance, and then a sleigh-ride on Ian. 26. A chili supper s "hit the spot" after the ride. In March Fume we"e'o'h Dingle' it was a hay-ride. Perhaps the biggest event was a dance called "Rainy Rhythm", featuring the Hy-Tones, Standing: Ardis Wells, Ed Cole, lack Hughe, S B 1- Square dancing Mayor Basil goo e .

Her parents are Mr. and Mrs. Ed- ward F. Roosa of 3866 Glendale avenue, Muskegon Heights. Not a native of this community, Mary Ellen nevertheless has proved to every- one she is most deserving of the honor now bestowed upon her. She first attended Ottawa Hills High School, later transferring to Manistee, and then to Muskegon Heights. Mary Ellen probably would be the last person to disclose the fact that she is a brilliant violinist. Music is her special interest although she enjoys art and girls' athletics. She plans to continue her music education, attend Iunior College, and later a school of music. She was in the Girls' Athletic Association at Manistee and a member of the National Honor Society at that school. Iames Uiml Tsaggaris, who won honors as salutatorian in the sen- ior class this year, was born in Muskegon, September 10, 1932, although he lived in Muskegon Heights all of his life. Iim's parents Mr. and Mrs. Nick I. Tsaggaris came to America from Greece, and reside today at 641 Maffett street. lim attended Glendale, Central, Central Iunior High, and Senior High schools. His hobbies are radio construction and photography, and he is deeply interested also in science and classical music. His favor- ite sport is tennis which he enjoys as a member of the Tiger tennis team. He plans to enter the University of Michigan in the fall to study elec- trical engineering. Each year the senior girls elect one whom they feel is the "best citizen" of their class. This year, sixteen-year-old Aileen Seacat was elected and sent by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to Lansing, for the annual convention. There she was pre- sented with a medal and certificate to commemorate the occasion. But besides these small tokens of appreciation, she has received an honor far greater! She has won the highest praise her own classmates can g1Ve.

Roy Miles on Student Government day: Hughes, Daniels, Long, g McKay. Usually. when a group takes over the city government, there is a good cause to call out the militia. But in this case, the overpowering group proved to be Heights seniors and the displaced group was the city officials. This "seizure of power" by the students marked the end of a successful political campaign for mayor-elect Ken Cutler and six city council members. Students occupied every political position of the city government and were assisted by the bona fide officials whom they were replacing. A mock city council meeting was carried on with all student officials attending. This student government day was chief- ly carried on for the sole purpose of teaching senior civic students the functions of a city government. Page Fifty-seven wma MEN AND WOMEN OF TOMORROW There are from 600 to 650 sopho- mores and juniors novv enrolled, but ot these 600 only about 375 Will grad- uate. These underclassmen may join almost any of the various clubs. They may also take any subject ot- iered except journalism which is giv- en only to seniors. ln this high school the undergrads have almost as many privileges as the seniors, which is not true in some schools. The seniors do not always run the school, either, as Was the case this year when a sophomore was elected president of the student council. Each class has its ovvn officers and is represented in student coun- cil. otograph by Mr. James V. Cobb Puge Fifty-nine IUNIOR CLASS AFFAIRS Standing: Christensen, Warrick, Billingsley, Valuck. Sitting: Ellis, Newald. Among the many events during the school year, We Iuniors pre- sented the annual Iunior Play. This year We chose Anne Weatherby's "Riddle Me Riches", a story of the typical American home, a comedy which proved very successful. We also sponsored the annual Iunior- Senior Prom which We have the priv- ilege of sponsoring every year. This is always a great event among the juniors and seniors and their guests.

One of the main events was a get-together held in the high school cafeteria in honor of the 10-l's coming over from Cen- tral Junior High at the end of the first semester. A large number at- tended and it proved to be a fine, friendly invitation to those who were beginning their career here for the first time. Entertainment was provided by the "tLittle 'German Band", refreshments Were also top priority. At this Writing, the Sophs were filled with good ideas, such as a chili supper to honor the second team basketball boys, for sophs only: a lunch or box social: a stock- ing supper with shoeless round danc- ing for entertainment.

For instance, parties held in the gymnasium ot the school from time to time help to develop the boy and girl socially. ln later lite this experience may, possibly, lead to success. In club meetings the stu- dent gets experience in discussion, quick thinking, speaking in public, and parlimentary procedure-all of which is to his great benefit. Debate, school plays, Work on the school newspaper and yearbook, participation in choir, orchestra, and band, election to Student Council, and membership in all ot the clubs help to teach students how to get along with other people. Courtesy of Smith, Photographer Page Sevenzffy-live STUDENT COUNCIL: VOICE IN GOVERNMENT Frank Bernard, a senior, president of the Student Council during the first semester, was one of the most popular boys in school. He did a splendid job of conducting the meetings. I-Ie had for his assistants, Douglas B. Murray, vice-president: and Carol Sekeres, sec- retary. During the second semester, Frank was graduated and left school, Doug Murray taking over as president. Shirley Newald, a junior, was ap- pointed secretary. Iarnes W. Verduin, civics and economics teacher, served once again as adviser. His faithful guidance is a credit to our school. More space than we have here Would be needed to discuss all of the Council's activities during a year. The 1949-50 Council sponsored all of the football dances, completed the pur- chase of uniforms for the cheer-lead- ers, conducted pep assemblies prior to some of the games, and began a handbook for students. The most sig- nificant action taken this year was playing host to the Student Council representatives of the Southwest Con- ference. To Mr. Iames Verduin, veter- an adviser of the Council, should go much of the credit. A Student Council, however, is never better than the quality of the students who comprise it.

Page Seventy-six SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS: GOOD PUBLIC RELATIONS Iournalism students, all of whom must be seniors and should have a high scholastic average and some talent in writing English, have the responsibility for publishng most of the news about our high school in The Muskegon Chronicle. The Muske- gon Heights Record, The Acorn, and The Oaks. It is a four-fold task and a huge one which requires not only work in class hours but also after school. ' School news aids the school, stu- dent, and community by helping edu- cate the parents as to the kind of work being done in school. School page news is as well read as any news in local newspapers, editors themselves tell us. School news reflects the spirit of the school, encourages activities, pro- motes better understanding with other schools. lt is "tops" in public relations, an important item in modern busi- ness. School is important business today. For the student, it provides an outlet for his talentin English, art, commer- cial work, printing, and salesmanship. It develops in him powers of tact, tolerance, observation, good judg- ment, discrimination. It puts into prac- tice virtues of accuracy, co-operation, initiative, leadership, ingenuity, and responsibility.

R. A. Peterman is the sales and sub- scription advisor. For the campaign there are two teams-girls vs. boys with the losers giving a party for the winners. This year the boys Won the contest by total points. The girl co- captains were Sabra Carl and Mar- cella Koonsman and the boy co-cap- tains were Werner Meister and Iohn Swett. The top salesmen of the class are Harry Weller, who sold 38 annuals, and Ioan Griiies, Who sold 24. Mr. Peterman, Who has been sales advisor since l92l, deserves a "big hand" tor his co-operation. ADVERTISING AND Advertising in this year's Oaks was sold by a group of seniors under di- rection of Principal C. F. Bolt, This project was carried out by seniors who were Willing to take time, usually after school hours, to go out and sell the space. Many were students of journal- ism. The advertisements were sold to various businessmen and industries in this area. Advertising in this maga- zine is far from a "donation". Ads in The Oaks last a lifetime: they are well read: the seniors appreciate them. The Oaks is money Well spent. Seniors soon become adults, which means, to business and industry, pro- ducers and consumers. An "ad" in The Oaks is money Well spent.

The affirmative team, composed of Ioni Newblom and Ken Cutler, Went undefeated until en- tering the State Regional tournament. lt defeated Kellogg High in the opener but lost to Albion in the semi-finals. Albion Went on to Win the tournament. The negative team, Bob Carlson and Junior Meyers, Won all but one of their scheduled debates. The question Was: "Resolved, that the President of the United States be elected by the direct vote of the people." Prospects for next year's team seem bright. Three of the regular debaters Will be returning to active duty. Cutler will be the only loss. Under the guid- ance and coaching of Miss Iulia A. Royse and E. W. Gillaspy, the Muske- gon Heights teams have always main- tained a high caliber team which ranks high annually in debating and forensic circles. More recently, Mr. Gillaspy has been head Coach. Yet, We could have even better teams if there were still more interest taken in debate. It is a profitable subject, one which teaches students to be alert, to argue reasonably and accurately, to think clearly. Benefits of debate re- main With a student for life.

The setting of the play was about an average American family that won 20,000 dollars over the radio program "Riddle Me Riches." A jack-pot full of prizes, which was received by the family, was the reward for the father's witty thinking. The winning of the prizes, a new maid, a visit from a famous Hollywood Star, all lead up to some very confused and hilarious situations. In the end everything turned out for the best. The play was given May 4 and 5, in the Muskegon Heights High School auditorium. Music was furnished by Heights High School orchestra, under the direction of R. Maynard Buck.

The marching band, under the direction of Paul Liddicoat, During the fall, it appeared at all football games at home and sifarted the year with a merrrber- ship of 103 students. It proved a source of pride to the entire school. E Page N incty-two awaynznd-at the pepasessions1 held before each game. fNot to mention the little "pep band" Which really did its share.D Color-Guards Lead the Parade Out in front of the band, mark- ing its appearance, are the color-guards. No marching band is complete without the color-guards, who carry the Uni- ted States and school flags and cw the rifles. The concert band, which is about one-half the size of the marching band, presented a Christmas concert and its Second Annual Heights Nite program successfully. Maiorettes Twirl On Familiar to everyone are the high stepping Majorettes who led our band during the march- ing season. These girls exhib- ited some fancy twirling which was received with pleasure by all football fans. In the spring, the band parti- cipated in the District and State Band and Orchestra Festivals, Solo and Ensemble Contests, Holland Tulip Festival, and Spring concert. Page Nirzely-tliree l 4 ORCHESTRA The orchestra, under direction of R. Maynard Buck, is one of the most progressive organizations in our high school. In 1947, there were six mem- bers, four of whom Were seniors. Today the orchestra is composed of 40 members and is a group of which the school has much reason to be proud. It is fast becoming one of the state's outstanding music groups. At the District Solo and Ensemble Festival all string entries from Muske- gon Heights High school received first division ratings, a high honor indeed. In the future, it is hoped that boys and girls in the grade schools Will take up the study of stringed instruments, be- cause only years of practice Will make one eligible for more advanced Work. Music demands hours of study but gives back years of satisfaction to the student. Page Ninety-four 4:1 , A TYPICAL PROGRAM Cornelius March .............. Mendelssohn Dance Macabre ..................

A CAPPELLA CHOIR Since the a cappella choir was first organized in l943 by the late Mr. Gayle Churchill, it has progressed very far, achieving a high position among choirs in Western Michigan and throughout the state. This year's choir is the largest in the history of the school, consisting of 67 members under direction of R. Maynard Buck. The choir has not only participated in many school activities, but has enter- tained at many community affairs such as the Norge Convention, Teachers Club dinner, and Christmas carols.

Athletic competition lends morale to the general life of the community and the high school student. Also, it means many hours of enjoyment for the fans. For the players, it means learning to work together with others of all races, nationalities, temperaments, and re- ligions. Athletics is an exhibition of one's physical prowess and skill and en- durance. lt improves mental health of both players and onlookers by supplying wholesome, absorbing in- terest in clean sport. VARSITY FOOTBALL SCHEDULE AND RESULTS The Muskegon Heights Tigers, always a name to be reckoned with regardless of the season, opened the '49 schedule facing former-Tiger Milo Sukup's powerful Grand Rapids Union !Red Hawks on Houseman field. A last minute desperation pass gave Union the Victory 13 to 7. Coach Sukup's boys were good, but not the same caliber as in '48. lt was Grand tRapids Catholic Central High which ran off with the honors last fall, defeating a fighting Tiger eleven 16 to 0 on .Phillips field. A high spot in the game was .Fitzgerald's long field goal. A week later the Tigers journeyed to Holland and again felt the sting of defeat, this time 13 to O. An intercepted pass and a Tiger fumble cost the locals the ball game. The Tigers' first victim was Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills. 'Captain Frank Bernard and Clyde Sneed showed up well and the ln- dians fell 14 to 0. Despite the absence of Quarterback Francis Mitchell, the Tigers gave co-champs Kalamazoo Central a battle they will long remember. The score was Kazoo 6: Heights 0. Muskegon Heights Tigers had a field day in Grand Haven taking the Buccaneers 18 to 0. Bernard, Mitchell, and F elcoski all crossed the Buc goal line for tallies. Pawlak, Daniels, and Sneed starred on the line. Returning to Phillips field the Tigers found it a little harder to beat Benton Harbor. Head Coach O. E. Iohnson, Director oi Athletics: David R.

The Muskegon aerial attack was too much for the Tigers. The locals were com- pelled to "spot" the Reds 20 points in the first half. After that, a new Tiger varsity appeared on the gridiron at Hackley stadium. The final score was 20-7. Big Iim Neal, captain of the Muskegon team and an All-State selection later on, proved a stand- out. Frank Bernard and Clyde Sneed were the only members of the Tiger team honored this season. Both received honorable mention by the Detroit Free Press. Although the Tigers experienced a rather VARSITY GRID SCORES Heights Opponents shaky season this past year, local fans and players 7 Grand Rapids Union -- are looking forward to another grid season in 1950.

The team, built around LeRoy Green, a senior, and several juniors, Won two games during the regular season. The Tigers drew a bye in the first round oi the Regional tournament. but lost to Kalamazoo by a score of 47-25. Kazoo Central Went on to become a two- time State Champion. Coach O. E. Iohnson, although regret- ting the loss of Green and Robert Long, star seniors, will welcome four regulars back for next year's team: Iackson, Valuck, Moeller, Hall, and Iohnson, lust what combination Coach Iohnson will use for a front line is undetermined. A center to iill Green's place presents just one of many problems. Next tall and Winter, the Tiger basket- eers may come up with cr definite threat to every team in the Southwest confer- ence. ln fact, We predict the Tigers will be winners for Heights High!

The 1949-50 season was not too successful, so far as the records on the books are concerned, yet the Tiger attack thrilled many a fan on occasions.
