Text from Pages 1 - 120 of the 1962 volume:

E B r LETTER FROM A GRADUATE Dear Sam: I passed the school today and from the distance Caught a quick impression of red cap and jacket On the same familiar steps that led me in a boy And led me out in some degree of manhood. And I thought how right it was to see you there. You know how years stretch out and one puts off the telling Of something said that changed a life ' s direction. But seeing you again, I tell you now. I remember how you kicked us and how you loved us With the same ferocious vigor, And how proud we were to be Sam ' s boys. Even when you melted us with shame When we lost a game we should have won. You used to say: " Play hard to win. You didn ' t practice for defeat. You didn ' t crawl and hit and fall and rise To be losers. Play fair; play clean; But win! " And when we only tied the championship We should have won, you scowled and yelled And told us we wouldn ' t make the Hall of Fame that year. And we didn ' t. Dissatisfied with mediocrity. Angry with any who produced less than his best. You were the coach of stars whose winning fire Proclaimed the faith you had in them. The goals you made them strive for: Forest Evashevski, Charlie Pink, Willis Ward, Dave Nelson, Bill Heston. " Snitz " Ross, Stanley Fay, Ernie McCoy, And all the others. I have carried you with me all these years. And I thought I ought to tell you That many near-defeats I didn ' t have to yield to Since then have turned to victory Because you always said: " You didn ' t play to lose. Naomi Madgett BILLY HESTON Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press Billy Heston whose father established a record as ALL TIME ALL AMERICAN, carried on the family tradition in sports by achieving captaincy of the 1926 Champion Football Team which scored 120 to 2 points and an unscored goal line. Subsequently, he made the All City and Ail State rating. We are proud to present his record in our dedication of this book to Sam Bishop. WILLIS WARD Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press In 1931, Willis Ward enjoyed the distinction of holding the worfd ' s indoor High Jump Record of 7 feet, 7 inches at the City Meet for High School competition. In addition, he won the All City and All State End in Football. This success continued at the University of Michigan with achieve- ments of three letters in Football and Track. Northwestern is happy to recognize the tremendous example of what real vision, effort and ideals can accomplish as a result of phenomenal persev- erance in the face of any obstacles. Today, Willis Ward enjoys an equally fifie reputation in the practice of law.

While he was Captain of the University oif Detroit Football Team, he as selected for All American Honors. After college graduation, he promoted the Goodfellows Foot- ball Contest now 33 years old. He has served as a Coach of winning teams at Wayne University, Catholic Central and Lawrence Tech. After returning to Northwestern to serve on the faculty for nine years, he was transfered to Ford High School. DAVID M. NELSON Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press David Nelson, author of " Wing T " , Athletic Director of an undefeated team at Hillsdale, Harvard Coach and now Athletic Director at the University of Delaware, pays the following tribute: " I have never met a person in the coaching profession who has the ability to stimulate the interest of young people in athletics that Mr. Bishop is able to do. Those of us who had the privilege and pleasure of playing for Coach Bishop have found that he is one of the most remark- able men— in our educational pursuits ' Charles Davis, Head of the English Department Ida Barr James Boyer Elizabeth Aprahamian Saul Bachner Theressa Brinson Harry Brown Ora Burgess Tillie Burke Edna Jackson Esther Kennedy Naomi Madgett 10 Eula Cutt, Assistant Head of the English Department Vide Mc Clelland Barbara Moore Verona Morton Bernadette Nentwick John Perry June Seese Geneva Smitherman Ogust Stewart Stanley Stone Gerald Szymanski Alexander Velosco Allison Kunkel, Head of the Mathematics Department John Barrance Lillian Brown Jane Guinan Ann Holley Lillian Humphrey Mildred Leonard Lois Macon Herzl Shur Gladys Stewart Jewell Yarbrough 12 Norman Williams, Head of the Science Department Ann Adams Naomi Collins Charles Dobbs Raven Elliott Bev V.

Good Citizenship Contest. 53 G G R E E D T W I I N S G H S E a S n d Mr. Patrick Sullivan After 35 years at Northwestern High School, Mr. Sullivan, our good friend and wise counselor, is join- ing the long list of faculty retirees who have given many years of distinguished service. Scores of stu- dents will miss the firm kind advise that stems from long experience. Under his guidance many a young person has learned to face the realities and responsibilities that come their way. He has taught his stu- dents to seek solutions not excuses. His sincerity and loyalty to Northwestern traditions have always been a source of inspiration to fellow teachers and youth alike. His remarkable sense of humor has en- deared him to his associates. It is with deep regret that we bid him farewell and with him go our best wishes for his happiness and good health. 54 GENEVA TARRANT Last June Girls ' State met in Ann Arbor where 360 high school girls from Michigan participated. Geneva Tarrant, a sixteen year old College Preparatory student who maintains a " B " average, was chosen to represent Northwestern High School. Girls ' State is operated and directed under the same system as the State of Michigan. The girls were divided into nineteen cities with twenty girls in each city. Officers were elected for local and state positions. The highest position was governor. Geneva was elected State Treasurer. During their ten day stay, the girls resided in the Mary Marker Hall. Here they were visited by many speakers who lectured on the importance of women in politics. Geneva, was active around Northwestern as a member of Student Council and the Science Club. She had this to say about her ex- perience: " It was very interesting and educational. It gives you a better understanding of and love for your country. " As a result of this honor, she will become a student counselor next fall at the University of Michigan. Thelma Milledge DON WHITE Don White was awarded the Y.M.C.A. Trophy for being a runner-up in the Basketball Tournament held during the holidays. According to Don, this distinction must be shared with other members of the team who served with equal devotion. Don was also selected by the Kiwanis Club and the Lions Club for the promotion of opportunities for deserving youth. Late in 1961, he was chosen to go to Lansing to ob- serve the Legislative processes at first hand. Another honor was bestowed upon him when it was his good fortune to be made the representative for the North- western High School Hi-Y in New York City for the pur- pose of studying the United Nations. N X 1 i 55 BOY ' S DAY COMMISSIONER OF MUNICIPAL PARKING Glenn Lee was chosen along with four other boys from Northwestern, to attend the Boy ' s Day Nomination Convention. The meeting was held on October 11, 1961 at the Veterans Memorial Building. The boys were selected because of their fine scholarship and leadership abilities. Every boy who attended the convention presented a platform offering suggestions for the improvement of our city ' s conditions. Candidates were chosen on the basis of their ideas. Glenn was appointed the Commissioner of Munic- ipal Parking. On October 25, 1961, the boys gathered for breakfast before starting the day ' s activities. After visiting the Mayor ' s office, Glenn was taken on a tour of the downtown underground parking lots by Mr. John Mc Gillis, his counterpart. Glenn has received an invitation to return for a visit with city officals, which he hopes to do in the near future. For his efforts, Glenn received a civic citation and a civic award. He was also delighted to be the recipient of a 1962 Impala— small scale model, that is. In addition to being an fjonor student, he belonged to the Science Club, The Future Teachers ' Club and the 12A committees.

Sam deserves credit for the way he came up. As a poor boy, he had to go to work at 13. Later he met and played semi-pro football with the late Martin Conrad, at that time coach at Benton Harbor High School Recognizing the boy ' s ability, Mr. Conrad persuaded Sam to return to school. After graduating with hon- ors, he entered Western Michigan Teacher ' s College in 1922. Here, he starred as guard on the team that was unbeaten, untied and unscored. He also made an outstanding record as an outfielder in baseball. Meanwhile, Conrad was offered a berth at Northwestern University, where he remained a year before ac- cepting a position at Glenview High School in Cleveland in 1924. Mr. Conrad, however, had not forgotten the serious young man from Benton Harbor who had just received his teaching certificate. Bert Maris was urged to give Mr. Bishop a trial. Sam was interviewed and hired. The rest is history. From 1924 to 1947, when he retired from coaching football, his teams won 113 games, lost 52 and tied 16. He had six league championships and twice his teams were the state ' s best. Sam coached any sport that Bert Maris asked him to. He took the baseball squad in 1931 and before handing the reins to Walter Owens in 1959, he had six West Side and three league championships. He coached track and swimming also, having the league track titleholders for both indoor and outdoor events in 1941. His cross-country team had also won the championship back in 1932. Sam Bishop had a burning desire to improve himself and attended night classes at Wayne University, getting a B.A. degree in 1933 and five years later he finished his work for M.A. When Bert Maris retired, he was named athletic director. Sam married the former Helen Jacobson in 1926. They have two children, Mrs. Madlyn Gold and Mel, a senior in Education at Wayne. In 1948, a testimonial dinner was given for him by some of his former students. They hailed him as " A Great Coach, A Builder of Men, A Good Sportsman " . To which we add: " A good winner and a good loser " . 79 GIRLS ' VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Left to Right, First Row: A. Miles, C. Tatum, M. Smith, A. Compbeli, S. Wallace.

Northwestern Dance Workshop is one of the oldest student organizations in the school. In fact it was the first dance concert group in Detroit high schools. All these years, it has maintained the very highest quality of performances by outstanding students of dance. Many of its former members are successful tea- chers of dance in our high schools today, our Mrs. Betty Boyce being one. Three are teaching in high schools and colleges in other parts of the United States and one has a successful studio in New York City. Each year these serious, hard working students give performances here at Northwestern and also take part in All— City Concerts. All dances are created by the students for their programs. This is truly an organization providing growth and development in this creative art! This year Helen Walker is chairman of the group. Mrs. Prudentia Huffman Carty is the director of this fine group. Here ' s to its continued success! 84 WILLIE HORTON Willie Horton played on the Northwestern High School Baseball Team three seasons. During this entire time in all the league games, he never struck out at bat. Recently, he signed a contract with the Detroit Tigers. This is his opportunity to make a place for himself in the maior leagues. Northwestern High School wishes him well. 85 BASEBALL TEAM 1961 t Hn k ' , " nu° ' ' ' -J-y " ' Tl ' ■-■ ° ' ' - ° ' " ' ' - ° « " - Second Row: W.
