POOLE Foreword AND PARTING WE LEAVE BEHIND US- This is the only symbol of the long hours of work and toil we have put forth to produce this volume. It is with pride and not apologies we offer it to you as the result of our handiwork. Those who have helped in the production of this, the 1925 annual of the Algonac High School, know something of the trials and hardships which have been en- countered this year. In glancing through this book, which in a way is a past record of the school year, do not be too harsh in your criticism, if perchance this volume does not meet your idea in every detail. We have endeavored to put forth an annual which we hoped to some degree would meet your approval. It is a reflection of school life during the year, to as great an extent as our best ability could make it, we have tried to reflect your life and the sterling qualities of your school mates. We wish to express, in the best words and language we know, to the Assistant Editors and Managers, our thanks and appreciation for what they have done to- ward producing this book, and we would not forget the students who have volun- tarily given much time and effort to the cause.

The President s Address Parents, Faculty, Board of Education, and Schoolmates: In behalf of the Senior Class of 1925 I wish to welcome you here this evening. I know it is you parents who are the most interested in this our final demonstration as a High School Class. We all realize this time how much your advice to study and stay in school has proven valuable. You have made numerous sacrifices in order that we might be able to complete our High School Courses. Members of the Faculty we now realize how much you have aided us. You have always been willing to help us in Scholastic difficulties as well as giving advice of a personal nature. You have proven yourselves to be true friends. When we first entered High School we were immature in the largest sense of the word. But by constantly coming into contact with instructors of your caliber we are leaving as young men and women capable of taking up our life’s work along with the citizens of a larger world. 1 wish to also extend a hearty welcome to you our friends who have helped us in many ways. You have backed every enterprise and assisted us much in times of need. It has been you, when the going was hard and rough, who have given us en- couragement and advice when we became discouraged and wanted to quit school. You have laughed at our grievances, called them petty and told us to keep on plug- ging, because the end to be reached by staying in school and working diligently was one worth while. Classmates, we have reached the end. We, as a Class will cease to exist after tonight. We have studied together and planned together and will face the op- position of a jealous world together. It is sad to think that soon we will be separated and no more shall enjoy the companionship of each other. Let us then face the unknown future as bravely and as earnestly as we have every other obstacle that has arisen before us. We enter the world ever determined to keep a stiff upper lip to the last. And let it never be said that any of the members of this class have ever in future years cast off the cloak of dignity which they wore so gracefully as Seniors. Therefore, as we look back into what now appears a misty past with all its great and wonderful achievements. And then peer into the future with all its yet more wonderful promises of greater and more glorious enterprises yet to come, with mighty and marvelous deeds awaiting our hands for the doing. We are fresh from the mint of our chosen High School and determine to put before you, the people, who have come to witness these exercises the best demonstration of the ability of the seven Honor Students of this class. Not only as a proof of what we have already accomplished, but as a proof that all promises that will be made in the fulfillment of our duties as citizens will always be of a high and noble char- acter. Therefore, I am indeed proud to speak words of welcome that carry with them from all my classmates a cordial and hearty welcome. Edward Kane 1 7 Salutatory Parents and Friends; It is my duty and my privilege tonight, to welcome you in behalf of the class of 1925. We are proud to have achieved the honor of graduation, and in our hour of triumph, turn naturally and gladly to you, our friends, to share our honors with us. Someone has said that the lesson of all true living is to learn our own limita- tions. If school has taught us nothing more, then, has our school life been suc- cessful. Perhaps the key note throughout our four short years of high school has been co-operation. We partly learned the meaning of that word in the grades; when we were freshmen it meant but little more to us but as the years passed in reaching the culmination of our high school days, we realized to a certain extent at least, the true significance of the word “co-operation.” Society at large has learned the importance of co-operative activity. History has proved that in all great undertakings, co-operation has been the fundamental, and the outstanding feature in success. There may’ have been a time in the development of civilization when the survival of the fittest was the law motiv- ating all society. Today the individual is subordinated to the group and “He sur- vives best who has best learned the lesson of co-operation.” School and colledges all over the country are training the young men and young women of today the strength that lies in united effort and so preparing them for their future, and the tasks that await them when they take their places in the keen struggle of life. Co-operation however, does not work single handed. As we learn to co-operate, so do those around us. Our parents and the community at large and the school have been the fundamental factors in making this night possible. It has been the willingness of parents and teachers to aid and advise; it has been the interest and energy of the school board; it has been the working together of all factions that has culminated in this occasion. Because this is true, to you, our teachers and school board, we wish to extend a most hearty welcome. We appreciate your ef- forts in making it possible for us, the class of nineteen twenty-five, to be the first ones to graduate from our new Algonac High School. We sincerely wish to show our gratitude to-night. And you, our parents and friends; I wonder if it really necessary to try to tell you in words how glad we are to have you with us? Our deepest feeling cannot be expressed. Our love is great for you who have put forth a shielding arm when we might have fallen. It is only through you, your efforts, your sacrifices and your belief in us, that we are able to be here. The sincerest sentiment in our hearts lies too deep for the trite words of appreciation to express; but to you all I can extend genuine welcome in behalf of the class of 1925. Oriel Endelman 18 Class History September 7, 1921. Dear Diary, just think of it 35 of us just entered Sr. High. How terrible it seems to be in that large room. We feel so small that I am sure the teacher put on glasses especially for our benefit. I wonder why those horrid Sr’s gaze so queerly at us. They just seem to make us melt away and to think, Diary, they call us green. Imagine that, can you. Well just as I thought they put us right in the front seats. Maybe it is as well because then we won’t have to walk by all those seniors. They seem to think that they own the whole school building, but wait until we are Seniors then we will show what we are made of. School isn’t so bad after all. They even let us have a room all to ourselves for class meeting. At last we are really able to call ourselves a class. We have a President, Edward Kane, a Vice-President, Theodore Zaetsch and myself presiding as Secretary and Treasurer. The meeting was quite nice until some of those Teachers came and said. “See that you select an advisor.” After a heated argument we chose Mr. Miller. Diary, I know that I have neglected you for quite awhile but I have been so busy with my school work that I have not had time to think of you. I am sure if you could ever have been a Freshman you would have known what I mean. Of course, we are too nice to act like other classes but then they act so terrible. I don’t see why the teachers don’t put some of those seniors out of school. I bet when we are seniors we will act different. « June 22. Think of it, the last day of school and now we are all Sophomores and I do not feel a bit more stuck up than I did five minutes ago. When we come back next year we will have to help frighten the green little freshmen. September again. Do you know that we all seem to feel different now that we are Sophomores. You know it seems much nicer to be sitting a little farther from the front seats then we did last year. The others say that they are going to try and talk a little now and then and maybe they will not be caught. We had another class meeting but this was not nearly as exciting as the one we had last year. Wonder why? We have Mr. Miller for our advisor this year and by the looks of the amount of time he is spending out of town we think that he will need an advisor. We have since heard of his marriage and know that he has one. JUNIORS. Diary I believe I will underline that word. Don’t you think that it sounds nice to say I AM A JUNIOR all you Freshmen and Sophomores better keep out of my way. I think they ought to pass a law giving JUNIORS the right to reprimand all younger students. Of course, after our class were Seniors they could call the law null and void. We are preparing for the J-Hop and I am sure it will be a big success. How could it help but be one when WE were giving it. The day after the night before, and finished labors are pleasant. If you don’t believe that ask the decorating committee. September 6, 1924. Diary, 22 of the 35 have returned to spend their last year under the roof of the Algonac High School, and with Mr. Bush as our very efficient and tactful advisor, we hope to make this a banner year. We again bestowed the honor of Presidency on Edward Kane. Our activities this year will be pleasant and far between. The Juniors found it very fitting and proper to entertain us at a Banquet and Hop. Decorations and toasts were given in our honor. The affair was a wondrous success. We have decided to have an Annual. I imagine it will be a lot of work, of course we can take our time because we have a lot of time between now and April. We are going to give a play “At the End of the Rainbow.” How well that fits in with the ending of our High School Life. Another important event in our Senior year was the entering of the New School building. We have waited for quite a time for the occasion and at last our hopes are fulfilled. One of the most historical features of our Senior year was the morning we were informed by Mr. Kane that our Annual was to arrive in Ypsilanti April 1. Did it get there? Well, ask any one of the Staff, they will tell you. Soon we will launch our ship in the stormy seas of life. We will take up our different tasks with good will and contentment. But hark, they tell me we are to begin making the final plans for commencement. Virginia Lertipke 19 Class Prophecy Maybelle: Ah, it is lonely here tonight. If only someone would come. Hark! I hear someone on the stairs now. Oh, Theodore, I’m so glad you came; but why look so downcast? Theodore: Tomorrow I start upon a long journey with a party of friends. I am fearful of the future so I came to obtain information regarding our voyage. Maybelle: Do sit down and I will tell you what I can. Did you obtain the requirements necessary to such a proceeding? Theodore: Just a few, but I hope you can tell me about them all. Here is the first. (Holding up a key). Maybelle: A key, the symbol of affection. Yes, Anne is affectionate. And farsighted too. She can see ships away in the distance and hurries to the lighthouse, for she is chief assistant there and must light the tower, the sailor’s guide. Theodore: Anne assistant in a lighthouse. Well I’m not surprised for in school she was always Clifford’s beacon guide. No wonder he got a job as watchman on the “Cliff.” Maybelle: And what is this? A boat. How strange life weaves it’s web about us. ' Twill soon embark upon the stormy sea of Matrimony, carrying as it’s only passengers the fair Nellie and brave Walter. A plausible result of the J-Hop. Upon their return they will open a Beauty Parlor and Barber Shop where the Algonac Feed Store now stands. Theodore: Nellie and Walter. Well, they’re a good match. They never did agree and now they won’t need to. Maybelle: Now what? A tent, as I live. A peep on the inside shows Mae, Oriel and Virginia gazing at the large assembly of townspeople. Mae is to be the strong woman in the performance. Virginia will teach you how to grow thin in ten lessons. She says if you don’t believe it just send for her picture. Oriel isn’t the sedate maid she was in our High School days. She is now an ultra-modern flapper, rushing the seasons styles. Theodore :So they’re in a circus. I’ll bet they never dreamed of such a thing when in High School. Indeed life is strange. But I’m interested in this. What does it mean ? Maybelle: A button. That is symbolic of fame and it belongs to none other than Theodore Newkirk. He will some day be a great artist. Why even now he can draw a natural breath. Theodore: “Ted” an artist, and he began his career as a soda-fountain sheik. It’s hard to believe. I have here a miniature cow. Surely no one among us will move on a farm. Maybelle: Ah, you have guessed a farm. Yes, I see Ruth with a pail on her arm. She is going to milk the cows and pauses on her way to feed the chickens. She and “Bill” have moved on the old Thompson farm. Theodore: Ruth a farmer. What does life hold in store for Irma then? Maybelle: Irma and Grace are doing noble work, Theodore, for they are both established in a home for the blind. Irma makes an excellent elevator operator in shooting Grace from one floor to another where she scatters sunshine with her merry peals of laugnter and kindly administrations. Theodore: Here is a book I got from Doris. She was our librarian in school, you know and I suppose she’ll establish herself in one of Detroit’s largest libraries. Am I right? Maybelle: No, not this time. She may be literarily inclined but her inclinations have placed her in the world of Salesladies for I see her going about from house to house soliciting orders for Ivory soap. Her father has a grocery has he not? Is there anyone else you wish to know about? Theodore: Yes, several. There’s Iris, Lucille 20 Maybelle: Enough, enough, don’t be so hasty. There’s such a contrast between these two that I must tell you about them now ' . I see Iris engaged in the Bonstelle Company earning good money but not much of it. Lucille on the other hand is, alas, an old and wrinkled maid. She has no one to care for her. Theodore: No one to care for Lucille! Impossible. Why she’s the most magnetic vamp in town. She can even catch cold. Maybelle: The evening is growing late and as I know the desire you possess for in- formation, I’ll hasten on. There’s no need to linger on Electa’s future. We all know that she will succeed her father in becoming Supervisor when he passes on, leaving his office unoccupied. Theodore: Our valedictorian, Margaret, will surely be a great lady. She led our class through to honor and will surely be well fitted to lead in the great world. Maybelle: Yes, Margaret is a born leader. Shortly you will see her standing on a soap box in Grand Circus Park vigorously and vociferously advocating “Woman Suffrage.” Theodore: Will Milliard realize his ambition and be a baseball pitcher? Will he continue to fight for his home town? Maybelle: Milliard will come as near to being a pitcher as he can for he will gain fame as a long distance runner in Marathon races. Theodore: And our President, Edward. I’m very much interested in him for IVn sure he has a brilliant future. Maybelle: Yes, indeed. A President he has been and a President he will continue to be. His name is already in Congress and ’ere long he will be the President of our glorious nation. Theodore: Will Genevieve return to the farm or will she become a part of the great flowing tide in a large city? Maybelle: Genevieve will leave her farm life, but she too will follow a worthwhile vocation. She is to be seen behind an oaken desk busily engaged in answering letters, giving matronly advice to the lovelorn. Theodore: And Clarence, he is the last but by no means the least in completing our party. Will he follow his father’s footsteps and be a creditable butcher? Maybelle: Nay, Clarence has come to the end of the rainbow. He is an aspiring and energetic waiter in the Harmony Restaurant. Theodore: Do you see nothing ahead for me? You have not told me a thing concerning myself, and can you read your own life? Maybelle: I am sorry to say that I see a hard and laborious life ahead for you, Theodore. You have secretly determined to carry on the work begun by your father. You will be in the coal business I assure you, but you will mine coal not sell it. Alas, my vision wans and I cannot read my own life. You will have to be content with what I have already told you. I am glad you called. This has been the most enjoyable evening I’ve spent in a long time and I sincerely wish each and everyone of you fair weather and a safe landing. Maybelle S. and Theodore Z. 21 Giftatory We had no little enjoyment in selecting these small remembrances and we feel con- fident that they will come in handy before long. I think if you had been with us you surely would appreciate these rare specimens of workmanship. We have tried to please everyone and we hope that you will save them for we know that an emergency will soon arise. “Edward, we have here something that will always remind you of your high school days. You have always been an active member of our class and so we present you with this Jumping Jack so that you may see yourself as others see you.” “It seems that there is a certain fellow in this town that has an awful lot of trouble with his ford roadster. We would hate to have him get stuck out on some lonely road and so we give you this brand-new spark-plug, hoping that you will always carry it with you, because George seems to have a lot of bad luck. Mae Mitchell.” ‘Theodore Newkirk, — We all know that you have a permanent wave in your hair, but you never can tell when a rainy day is coming and so we present you with this curling iron hoping it will assist you in keeping those curly locks.” “Margaret Folkerts, — Margaret has never expressed her desires or ambitions but from all appearances she is to become a teacher, and so we present you with this ‘Guide to Rural Teaching. ' We are sure that you will find it full of helpful methods.” “Oriel Endelman, — We all expect to find Oriel over in Africa some day, and we hope that she won ' t disappoint us for we have purchased this slick little sailboat. You don ' t have to worry about not being there on time for it will make as much time as any buick made and the best part of it is that you won’t have to worry about being arrested for speeding.” “Genevieve, — We decided that a road map would come in handy for you. You will always know where Pearl Beach is now and hope you will have many more pleasant trips in that direction.” “Nellie, — We have often heard you remark, ‘I want a man.’ Your wish is granted for here is the man of your choice.” “Walter, — Knows his stuff when it comes to radios. It must be an awful expense for you to use your radio so continuously and so, to show you that our hearts are in the right place we give you this bulb, so if yours wears out you will not have to waste your time nor leave your radio, but will have this one ready.” Maybelle, — Star gazing seems to be your favorite pastime. In order that it won ' t take so much effort on your part, we present you with this telescope and hope it will aid you in finding your star.” “Clarence, — If we judge from your ability in the ‘Country Justice’ we feel sure that some day you will need this gavel. It will call any court room to order. “Grace, — We had an awful time finding something that would be suitable for you. You say so little that we decided to give you this package of gum. We thought that perhaps the motion would start you on the road to public speaking.” “Clifford, — We didn’t know whether to give this dictionary to you or not. If you promise to study it intensely this summer we will give it to you and by the time you enter college we hope that you will be able to make the professors understand what you are talking about.” “Lucille, — You seem to have a terrible time keeping track of your dates. We girls of course sympathize with you and so here is a note book which will aid in straightening out your mixups.” 22 “Millard, — We have always looked up to you, but here is a ladder with which we want you to come down to earth.” “Every class has its public speakers. Theodore doesn’t speak in public much but — he talks enough. We have bought you a new tongue, Theodore, in case yours wears out.” “Electa, — From the appearances you very seldom have time to dress your hair in the morning and so we present you with this comb so that you may comb it on the wav to school.” “Erma, — We have been told that you have a hard time keeping Frank awake and I‘m sure this smelling salts will overcome your difficulty.” “Iris,— We hope this garage will be large enough to hold “Nifty’s” car. It isn’t good for it to remain outside in the cold every night.” Doris, — We’ve heard that you are taking reducing exercises over your radio and so we give you these dumb bells to assist you.” “Virgie, — We know you are very fond of Ford coupes with balloon tires, wind deflec- tors, and Harold behind the wheel. In case he is not there when you want him, here’s one for your very own.” “Anne, — In case fate turns the lives of Clifford and you in different directions you will always have this stick of wood to remind you of him.” “Ruth, — No farm is complete without its chickens and we are sure this one will aid in increasing the stock.” “Miss Bradley, — You should be well versed on the contents of this Latin pony to enable you to tactfully discover one who feign would fool a teacher.” “Mr. Bush, — Frequently you have kept us waiting until you arrive in the morning to open the assembly doors. This alarm clock. I’m sure, will awaken you promptly, to sleep no more.” “Miss Cliffe, — In order to keep up with your reputation for being spick and span some- one suggested this little dust pan.” “Miss Chase, — We are told you love to sew — no good seamstress ever sews without a thimble.” “Mr. Dodge, — At one time or another we have all heard your whistle, and in case it becomes the worse for wear, this canary will keep up the good work.” “Miss Everill, — Your one desire is to travel. We know that at the last minute when the train whistle blows, you will find some forgotten article to put in this suitcase.” “Mr Eyler, — More than once you have run out of gasoline ten miles from a gas station. This little can will fit in you vest pocket, for use in case of emergency only.” “Mr. Lockwood,— So you are going to be a student again! Here is a blue book— fill it as you would have had us do, and practice what you preached.” “Miss Westfall, — Untidy tables in the domestic science room will be a thing of the past for with these spectacles you may detect the guilty parties before they leave class.” Ruth Witherspoon Anne Merrill SENIOR CLASS DAY The Program for the Senior Class of 1925 will be held in the New High School Auditorium, Tuesday evening, June 16. The seven honor students of the class will partici- pate in this program, there will also be an address given by the President. The plan is as follows: President’s Address Edward Kane Salutatory Oriel Endelman Class Prophecy Theodore Zaetsch Maybelle Sharrow Class History Virginia Lempke Giftatory Anne Merrill Ruth Witherspoon Valedictory Margaret Folkerts Of course, no Senior Class program would be complete without music and this will be furnished by Fox’s Orchestra of Detroit. 23 Valedictory Friends One and All: They say there are people who always like to have the last word. But I think that the last word, the farewell for this class of 1925, is the hardest to say. First we want to thank the Board of Education. We owe them all the privileges we have enjoy ed during the past four years. It is through their aid and untiring hard work that it is possible for us to graduate from this new school. Our Parents are the ones who have made it possible for us to graduate. We are indebted to them more than we ever can repay even though we work a lifetime trying to do it. Who is it that is always ready to help us in times of need? Who gives us en- couraging words and smoothes over the rough roads with love and kindness? If they had not been willing and ready to cheer, urge, and comfort us in the hours of discourage- ment this class, the largest that has ever graduated, would be much smaller. We would like to express our thanks and gratitude to the faculty of the Algonac High School for the help they have given us during the past year. It is only through their patience and training that we as Seniors are able to pass a successful year and graduate. We hope that if they hold any grievances against us for misconduct in the class rooms or halls they will forgive and forget them. Remembering that they were once Seniors and perhaps troublesome too. I can remember this class as Freshmen. Also the many jokes played on us. We were all very frightened when we entered High School, and the Sophomores and Juniors caused us much discomfort, saying nothing of what the Seniors said and did. To the Freshmen and Future Freshmen I would like to say, these four years that everyone pictures so hard and nearly unconquerable can be accomplished if enough energy is applied. And I am sure that everyone of you can win success and be graduates four years from now. We leave this school in June leaving you to keep up its high esteem and honor, and we feel confident that you can do it and reap your reward in graduation. For Shakespeare says: “Signs of nobleness like stars shall shine On all deservers.” Schoolmates, we have been companions for the past four years, and some of us for longer. Four years of trouble and joy for all of us. We have sympathized with each other in trouble and have rejoiced in joy. We have enjoyed each others company and friendship as well as any other school body or society. If there are any little grudges someone holds against another let them be forgotten amid the pleasures we have had to- gether. We go forth after graduation on the voyage of life and whether we succeed or fail only the future can tell. “Acte Labors Joricundi — Finished Labors Are Pleasant,” is our motto. It is pleasant to look back from this our goal of graduation and remember the work we have done, and the fun we have had amid the work of High School Life. And as we look to the future we hope to be able to say with equal joy as we have, “Finished Labors Are Pleasant,” so will the unfinished labor be pleasant to perform. Thomas Moore says: " Let Fate do her worst; there are relics of joy , Bright dreams of the past , which she cannot destroy; Which come in the night-time of sorrow and care y And bring back the features that joy use to wear. Long , long be my heart with such memories fill ' d! Like the vase , in which roses have once been distill’d You may break , you may shatter the vase if you will , But the scent of the roses will hang round it still” Regardless of what the future brings us either joy or sorrow, we will always have these relics of joy, our High School Days. These the bright dreams of the past, can never be destroyed even though sadness and sorrow rap at our door. These labors that we per- formed during our School life will always be bright and pleasant in our minds. Although we are separated and scattered to different parts of the earth, where ever our roads lead, be it gloomy or bright, the memory of these pleasant tasks will cling to us forever. And so friends. Classmates and Parents in behalf of this class of 1925, I bid you farewell. 24 Margaret Folkerts CLASS POEM Tell us not } O bygone classes School is but an easy dream; For the student works who passes; Lessons are not what they seem. School is real , school is earnest , And today we but begin; “ Weak thou art — to school returnest! " Oft is spoken ere we win. Not beginning , and not ending , Is our school of life today; But to pause, our memories blending With our hopes along the way. Tasks seem long , yet class-time fleeting , And we ' ve all seemed brave and gay , Though our hearts , like drums were beating On examination day! In each day ' s returning battle , We have had our taste of life; Often made the book-shelves rattle With the zeal of learning ' s strife. Now a future, ever pleasant , Beckons from a past that ' s dead; We must leave this living present , Knowing not what waits ahead. Lives of graduates would remind us We could win diplomas , too; And departing , leave behind us Proof of all we ' ve tried to do. Records that perhaps the classes Coming after us may find , Gleaning thought which truth surpasses From the words we leave behind. Let us then , be up and speaking , For our program lies in wait; Welcome , friends , some pleasure seeking; Come and see us graduate!

Let’s sing of Ted our football star, And Margaret staunch and true, And Anne’s and Cliffords hearts unite, And Grace with heart true blue. Chorus I’ll ne’er forget my High School days, Those dear sincere old High School days, I’ll ne’er forget my Algonac, ’Twas there long friendships first began. At Algonac all hearts are true; All loyal to the maize and blue. There e’er will be a golden haze Around those dear old High School days. Second Verse In future years Oriel we see A prominent speaker grown, And Jack owns her shop of tea. With Ted our artist lone, And Alice our loyal nurse so dear Has nursed Lucille so brave, And Ruth our little loving wife With Erma as her maid. Third Verse Next year we see our Mae at school. And with her Maybelle dear, Our Virgie’s keeping house we know And Iris too, we fear, Our Ed and Putz are shooting craps As in their High School days. And Millard is our Doc. perhaps, And Walter prays and pays. Fourth Verse Electa eloped with her Dad’s Chauffeur, And told us where to wire ’em ; While Doris spends her time these days In coaxing her Dad to hire one; In Freshmen year and Sophomore too, We made just heaps of mon’; The Junior year we gave the Hop The last year we had the fun. Doris Quackenhush 34 SPRING! Springtime is a maiden fair, Whose dainty fairy feet, Comes dancing on the balmy air So fragrant and so sweet. The brook goes winding on ifs way A murmuring, silver thing That dances where the pebbles lay, y Tis happy; y tis spring. All nature leaves its hiding place And wanders forth to see The young and smiling face of spring Comes dancing o y er the lea. No joys can ere come up to this When earth receives such heavenly bliss. Virginia Lenore Lempke “THE CHAMPIONS” To the Football heroes of twenty-four This tribute of verse we bring; Their fame is known , both far and wide , Of their deeds ’ tis an honor to sing. Of games they played an even ten , Tied one , and lost but two, Seven victories , then , ie r glories speak. These warriors tried and true. Within the county of St. Clair T s true they won each game; Their opponents never made a score To Algonac’s great fame. Thanksgiving Day they went to Sandusky, Some eighty miles or more, To win the championship of the Thumb By a seven to thirty-one score . Mr. Eyler, the coach , deserves great praise , He labored long and well; Without his help , we know the boys Would have failed thus to excel. So here ' s to our gallant Football boys Who won for themselves renown By upholding the standard of A. H. S. They brought glory upon their town . 37 FOOTBALL “CHAMPIONS OF ST.

THE FOOTBALL TEAM OF 1924 t The team of ’24 was a team of many victories, one that stood for hard battles, and clean sportsmanship, built up around the many letter men of ’23. The squad learned to work together, the first policy of any team of worth. They started out in the beginning of the season with little hope of the championship, but with a wonderful spirit, a kind that is characteristic of the teams of A. H. S. The first game was with Utica, a game that did a great deal to point out the defects in our team. The game was a defeat for Algonac, but under the circumstances it could hardly have been any different. Our team had three days practice while Utica had three weeks. The first real game was with Richmond, “The Wonder Team.” This team was considered better than any team Algonac had ever placed on the gridiron. But our fellows were set on showing Richmond that she wasn’t the only pebble on the battlefield. The game was probably the hardest fought game ever played in Algonac. It was a game of Science as well as of Brute strength. We held “The Point A Minute Machine” to a tie score of 0-0. This gave the team the needed confidence, which means a great deal. The second game was with Marysville, one which would tell whether the team would be too over confident. The squad went into the game with a spirit of “Do or Die.” It was a hard fought game but victorious for the A. H. S. machine. From then on, it was a story of hard fought games with great victories. Many amus- ing details of the remaining county games could be enumerated, but this would take too long so we leave it to your fond remembrances. Along about the end of the season, Sandusky, unable to remain in her own back yard, challenged our team. We took up the challenge and the game was played Thanksgiving Day, before a record crowd on the field at Sandusky. Our team completely outclassed them and set them down to an amazing defeat. This victory marked the close of the most successful football season in the history of old A. H. S., and set a new criterion for future teams. We hope that in the coming season that the team of ’25, with Warner as captain, will have the same or even greater success than the team of ’24.

THE BASKETBALL TEAM OF 1925 The Basketball Team of ’25 was not a winning team. One of the reasons for this was the lack of practice, due to the fact that the new gymnasium was not in readiness. The team fought hard against the odds and played a clean game but the odds were too great. This team had no captain, a new scheme was tried. Every man had his chance as captain. In this way a great deal of contention was avoided. It is certain that the team of ’26 with their practice and with the old fighting spirit of A. H. S. will win the cup. 40 LINE UP Mae Mitchell, R.

G.; Elizabeth Heminger, R. F. ; A REVIEW OF THE SEASON An even split in games won and lost represent the statistical data for the 1925 basket- ball season. With the opening of the new gymnasium the team became more enthusiastic and the season was much more succesful than for a number of years. Several excellent teams were met and defeated in the course of the season through which at all times the A. H. S. girls played a superior brand of ball, developing a powerful offensive and a puzzling defense. The lack of height in our girls proved to be our greatest handicap in several of the major games. The first game of the season as well as the first game in our new gymnasium was with Yale. The score tied at end of first half. But with a few seconds to play and Yale in the lead by three points, Mitchell caged two field baskets, deciding the game 21 to 22 in our favor. St. Clair put the jinx on A. H. S. even though the home girls showed splendid work in passing the ball, but with lack of height were unable to cage the baskets. We won an easy game from Marysville, but the return game was a r ough one. We were forced to accept defeat by a one point margin. The season ended for the A. H. S. with a tie game with Marine City. With Mitchell, our best forward, out on account of sickness we held our opponents to a tie game In spite of the tie the visitors were outplayed in every respect, the breaks alone favoring them and saving them from defeat.

However, the interest already shown and the quality of material available, justifies the most enthusiastic expectation. A number of old players form the nucleus round which will be developed a smoothly working machine. Spring training concerns itself largely with practice in the gentle art of hitting the ball tearing up the old earth in the kind of slides that win games base running and the tricks of the game with plenty of time spent in the all important draft of fielding that old ball. “Play the ball, don’t let it play you” will doubtless grow as tiresome as many other coach’s bromides, but results are what we all are after. Vague rumors assail our ears of the organization of the girls team as well. All luck to all devotees of the noble sport. The least we can do is to sound in the ears of all county teams a warning that Algonac again means business and no game will be over till the third man is out in the last inning. The schedule is as follows: April 3 New Haven Here April 17 Marysville There April 24 St. Clair Here May 1 Marine City Here May 8 Capac There May 15 Open May 22 Yale Here “BASEBALL GIRLS” As soon as the weather proved warm enough, the baseball girls commenced their daily practice with Superintendent Lockwood Coaching. Several games were played be- tween the regulars and another team. One disadvantage for the team was that the boys and girls wanted to practice at the same time so the girls had to play on a temporary diamond, yet unheedful of this obstacle they worked faithfully to make a team worthy of their school. Altho the results of the season are yet to be seen, still we all wish them much luck for their success. (4 TRACK Track started early in March and with only two weeks workout the relay team con- sisting of Kane, Harry Bell, C. Smith and C. Woods, went to Ann Arbor, there competed with the best schools from three states. Kane, and Bell were among the fast men in the fifty yard dash. Kane was a runner up in the high jump, jumping 5 feet 7 1-4 in. In general we were outclassed and did not place in any of the events. We are looking forward to the Sixth of June at which time, the relay team, with the aid of a number of others, will meet the schools of the county and try for honors. -12 Dramatic Club For the first time in the history of Algonac High School Dramatics has this year received official recognition. In October the Club was organized with an initial membership of 24, 15 of whom remained in the class until the end of the year receiving one-half credit toward graduation. The class met on Tuesdays and Thurs- days of each week and under the direction of Mrs. Mildred Atkinson Bush followed the Leland Powers method in voice work and expressive movement. Each member of the class prepared at least two readings for public presentation or participated in the one act plays, “Neighbors,” “Joint Owners in Spain,” “Florist Shop” and others that were produced during the year. Two public performances gave all the opportunity for a practical application of class theories. Considerable emphasis was placed upon character study and character portrayal ; the results of which were nowhere more apparent than in the masterly presentation of “Joint Owners in Spain” by the cast composed of Oriel Endelman, Winifred Kalchthaler and Elizabeth Heminger. No doubt the success of this year’s Club and the popular interest evoked will result in Dramatics and Public Speaking receiving a permant niche in the school curriculum. A 5 Glee Club The High School Glee Club was organized in October with an enrollment of twenty-two, both boys and girls. Considerable time was given over in the beginning to the study of the rudiments of music and then to songs of musical worth. At Christmas time the club went carolling around the village, the first time that had ever been done. Due to the pressure of Athletics most of the boys dropped out of the organization in the middle of the year so it was decided to make it just a Girls Chorus in the future. A program of choruses was given in March, in connection with the Dramatic Class; the girls chorus will compete in the County Contest, and will present a short operetta at the close of the year. With the start the Club now has, another year should develop a splendid organization that will be a credit to all school functions. 46 Debate Algonac High enjoyed a very creditable and successful season in debate under the direction of G. F. Bush. The debating squad was composed of Elizabeth Hemin- ger, Winifred Kalchthaler, Oriel Endelman, Dor is Quackenbush, Viriginia Lempke, Emily Poole and Florence Nugent, the first three of whom comprised the regular team. The state question for debate was, “Resolved, that the Philippine Islands should be given their immediate and complete independence.” Four debates were engaged in, two with Marysville and two with Marine City. Three of the four de- bates were won easily by the locals, one of them by unanimous decision of the judges. The decision in the fourth debate was captured by Marine City, the judges voting two to one. The record of three wins in four starts is worthy of commendation. The members of the squad who worked most willingly and interestedly deserve unstinted praise. More and more are schools coming to recognize the value accruing to students through participation in interscholastic activities and as usual Algonac High is among the first to emphasize worth while things. 47 The Senior Boys’ Hi-Y Group of 25 The present Hi-Y Group developed from the Hi-Y started by Mr. Phelps in ’22. Whenever there was a vacancy caused by a member dropping out, he was re- placed by some fellow who was agreeable to the group. The present group consists of Edward Kane, Clarence Nugent, Walter Pontius- Secretary and Treasurer, Bill Thompson, Donald Layman, Alvin Plonkey, Wilbert Warner, Grant Zavitz, and Theodore Zaetsch-President. The group is led by Loren Eyler a very capable leader. The aim of this group is too promote Christian Fellow- ship and a high standard of living, and with the co-operation of all, this may be accomplished. Theo. Zaetsch AS Girls’ Senior Hi-Y Group The Senior Girls’ “Y” group was organized in 1923 by Mrs. Duddy, the County “Y” Secretary, and Florence Everill was chosen leader. A few meetings had been held the previous year but it was not organized as a branch of the County Y. W. C. A. until 1923. The aim of the “Y” is to develop the girl “Four Square,” namely: physically, mentally, socially, and religiously. Regular meetings were held in which the girls took a part under the direction of the leader. Once a month a social meeting was held. The meetings ended in May for that year. In the fall, the group was again organized with Miss Everill as leader, each girl taking part in leading a meeting. Last year the group paid their pledge of twenty-five dollars to the County “Y” Fund and also twenty-five dollars for this year. Anne Merrill 49 The Tri-Y Group The Tri-Y is a revolutionary group. We first organized with Mr. Davis as our leader. Now under the able leadership of Mr. Dodge we are one of the strongest groups in Algonac. We put over the Fathers and Sons Banquet this year and we don ' t brag when we say that it was a great success. We’re not talky but just watch our dust. Leader — Frank Dodge Kermit Zaetch (President) Wilfred Bell Theodore Newkirk Harry Simpkins Elmer Pontius Hugh Jackson Harsen Smith Clifford Woods Charles Smith Harry Bell 50 M. M. M. We girls of the M. M. M. Hi-Y group indeed value the benefit we have obtained from our meetings and appreciate the privilege of being guided by so helpful a leader as Alice Smith, who has faithfully worked with us from the start. We feel that these little gatherings have been the inspiration of many a good thought which we strive to develop into kind deeds in our school life. Because of such an organ- ization we have become better acquainted with the real characters of our friends and Schoolmates, and so a deeper understanding exists. Although we have had many uplifting religious talks and discussions, yet frequently we have enjoyed a pleasant social gathering, sometimes by ourselves and often with another “Y” Group. Through these meetings we have attempted to become “Four-Square” girls, developing the physical, mental, social, and moral sides of our nature. All the members of this group are Juniors and each cherish the hope that she may enjoy another pleasant and happv year under the symbol of M. M. M. B. H. 51 The C. O. I. Hi-Y Group The C. O. I. Hi-Y was organized some time last September. The leader of the group is Miss Bradley and the officers are: Margaret Newkirk, President; Frances Poole, Vice-President; and Emma Eberhardt, Secretary. The rest of the members are: Lucille Folsom, Frances Dash, Margaret Brabaw, Avis Kronnich, and Lauretta Quibell. This group is a very lively one, although there are only eight members Every Thursday night the group meets regularly. First they have a business meet- ing, then devotionals and closing by sentence prayers. A party was given in honor of the girls’ parents. After a good supper, the group had its usual meeting and the mothers had a chance to hear what the meetings are like. They do a lot of good work and try to practice all the things they learn and read about at their meetings. While this group has not been organized long they feel that they have at least made a good beginning and hope to accomplish much greater things in the future. 52 G. R. Y. Group We, the G. R. Y. Group were organized two years ago, with Mr. Eyler as our leader. The officers are as follows: Harold Pocklington, President; Harold Mc- Carthy, Vice-President; Francis McCarthy, Treasurer; and Kenneth Folkerts, Secretary. The members are Fred Mensen, Gordon Moore, Francis Crevier, Frank Hemenger, Robert Simpkins, Robertson Townsend, Kenneth Atkinson, and Winslow Morrow. Last fall, after working hard for nearly a year, we won the “Rueben Moore Bible Study Award. ” Each member did his part toward winning the cup, which means a lot to us. We have many good times playing basketball and eating. The G. R. Y. meets every Monday night at 7:30. Our aim is to live a better and cleaner life and to be a “Four-Square” group, that is morally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. 53 The A C. H. Group The A. C. H. or Sophomore “Y” Group was organized in September by Mrs. J. T. Duddy the Girls’ County “Y” Secretary. Miss Wortz was chosen leader and she has proven a very worthy and capable one for the position. About twelve girls joined at this time. Interesting meetings are held every Wednesday night. And this Group is, also, endeavoring to live cleaner and better lives through the aid of the Y. W. C. A. 54 CALENDAR 1824-1925 September 2 First day of school and one of the most enjoyable.

The Senior class of 1925 was the first to give a banquet before the Hop. They made it an occasion. Under the unceasing efforts of Virginia Lempke and Theodore Zaetsch the church was very prettily decorated in green and white and the Senior Class table in their colors which were yellow and lavender. Edward Kane was a very capable and witty toastmaster. Mr. Eyler gave the In- vocation, Edward Kane gave the welcome to the Seniors and William Thompson responded; Virginia Lempke greeted the parents and Mr. Callan then spoke in their behalf; Theodore Zaetsch gave the toast to the faculty with Superintendent Lockwood responding; Dr. Stewart talked for the School Board. The banquet was thoroughly enjoyed by all. After the banquet everyone adjourned to the Odd Fellows Hall where the Hop was held. The hall looked unusually well, being decorated in Green and White with sprinklings of Yellow and Lavender. There was lattice work around the orchestra stand covered with Sweet Peas; there was also an arch over the door. There were baskets of Sweet Peas at each end and one hanging down from the middle of the ceiling. The orchestra was “The Peerless” and the music contributed to the gayety of the evening. A very delightful lunch was served. The dance closed at 2:00 A. M. and everyone declared it the best of the year. The Annual J-Hop The Annual J-Hop in honor of the Seniors was held on Friday February 6, 1925. The affair was a great success. The Seniors, Juniors parents and Faculty enjoyed a ban- quet at the Methodist Church, previous to the party. The Senior table was prettily decor- ated with their class colors, green and white. After the delicious meal, a brief program was given. The program was carried out on the Shakespearian order. Every one of the toasts given was on some Shakespearian play. The Toastmaster Dr. Stewart was introduced by Mr. Eyler. Speeches were given by Harsen Smith, President of the Junior class, Mr. Bush, member of the faculty, Edward Kane, President of the Senior class, Mr. R. T. Gilbert, member of the School Board, Alene Stewart, member of the Alumni, and Mr. G. O. Lockwood, Supt. of school. Mrs. Neff and Mrs Harsen and the Misses Cliff and Wortz capably assisted with musical selections. From the banquet we adjourned to the School Auditorium where the dance was given. The hall was decorated in Blue, Gold, Green, and White, the colors of the Junior and Senior classes. With the help of Sid Lacroix’s Orchestra the evening and part of the next morning was passed away in tripping the light fantastics. A good time was reported by all. 56 FACULTY Name Nickname Ambition Characteristic Favorite Expression Bush, Gerald Bradley, Wilda “G.

It was a complete success. Many people attended both in afternoon and evening. DEDICATION Friday, January 16, 1925, was an eventful day in the History of the old A. H. S. Dedication services for the New School were held in the Auditorium. About one thousand people attended the Grand Opening. Mr. Thomas E. Johnson, superintendent of the State Department of Public Instruction was the speaker for the occasion. Selections by the Cass Technical High School Orchestra of Detroit, were interwoven through the program. At the Close of the addres, refreshments were served by the members of the Senior Class, assisted by the Junior Boys.

The very slave, whom thou set free That he might live according to God ' s plan Of brotherhood and love because thy plea Doth ask that he be set at liberty , And raised up to the plane where all began. Thou art a new creation of the West , A man colossal in great love and grace A mingling of the traits which we count best. Something unnamed shows in thy kindly face. Help us, thou who hast stood the noble test, To carry on since thou hast set the pace. G. M. THE OCEAN The ocean washing up so free and wild; The ever changing beauty of the deep; Whose magic moveth me as tho a child , And awakens me from the deepest sleep. Thy high waves washing on the cliff so wild. Thy billows rushing out to meet the sky , Thou was tempest born , I a human ' s child , Who can but ponder on thy self and sigh. But was not thy creator same as mine ? Are we not loved the same , his children both? Altho for thy great massive strength l pine; To so complain about it I am loath , Why should I long so much to be as thee? The maker loveth all both chained and free. N. M. “THE SILLY SENIORS” Jack Richardson would know if she may win Success in literature! Dear me. Who dares to say? ’Tis all her own mind That she success or failure has to find. And Doris would really like to sing. Ain’t that just the funniest thing. But if she has a voice so must it be The girl can sing for all of me. Nellie Marsden is our actress fair And the idol of the public with her long curly hair But the one thing that makes our Nellie sore. Is that Mary Pickford copies after her. Ed left the house at half-past eight Looking handsome and quite sedate. When they brought him home at half-past four He croaked like the Raven, “Nevermore.” Virgie writes a dainty note. She wants to go where women vote And be elected governor of the state She feels that she was born for just such fate. Here’s to Anne, the American Girl. ' She’s got power to attract a King or Earl. Wouldn’t you think she’d be loyal then To all good true American men? Margaret is a nice good lassie When she doesn’t get too sassy Do you know her shoes are number sevens? Later she’ll be wearing number elevens. What’s this Alice would like to be a nurse! Well now, that’s good, she might be worse, nH seeing s e has a kind and tender heart I think she is well fitted for her part. Grace Corbett is quiet and shy And she’s there with a boost for Algonac Hi. She scares the bluest thoughts away And makes someone happy every day. A fellow has no time for hate With a girl like Irma for a running mate His soul can float around in the air For he gets light-headed when she is near. Oriel’s heart is sheathed in steel To pierce through it will mean a great deal But Cupids darts she can not retard When a maiden falls, she falls hard. 63 Young Lochinvar has come out of the west Of all the sheiks in town the girls like him best He’s vivacious, he’s flirty, he’s a gem without fault Did you ever see a boy like that little cup-up Walt. Iris Folkert lacks much in length “Copper” is tall but hasn’t much strength But, whether lacking in height or in size, They won’t leave here till they think they’re wise. Next, Ted Zaetch, Society man, Gets a new Girl, Whenever he can. In basketball Mae as forward starred Quick Oscar! call out nine extra guards. A penny earned is a penny saved Tnus snake the Philosopher, Clifford Woods A Penny is a cent the whole world over Now how many pennies make common sense I’m sure I don’t know, I haven’t any. Lucille takes to fellows well So you see her futures all shot t’hell. Electa works in a scholarly way She’ll be an efficiency expert some day t Clarence Nugent is his mothers joy She says he’s simply a wonderful boy. But we know a boy that shoots crap and plays pool And he’s there with his stuff when we plan to skip school Maybelle Sharrow is good at making bread She puts all her buns upon her head. Ruth is noted for her friendly way We grow to love her more each day — so does Bill. Ted Newkirk is one continual joke And the ears of St. Peter does provoke With girls in general he always fights Oh mother, where is your boy tonight. 64 FAK-IL-T Darwin’s all wrong and Byran too, G. O. refuted all that you know, He’s got us upset, all hinky-dink, He says he’s a friend of the missing link. With a sense of awe we listen To the voice of G. F. Bush, The first on earth and the last in heaven To have such “English” fits. O’er the rough course of existence. Rocks of sin and wastes of woe, Mr. Eyler sails his ship Sailing with a rake and hoe. Frank Dodge is a ladies man The ladies all fight vainly for his hand Like Mohammed, his eyes turn to the west, Harbor Beach is there and the girl he loves the best. Ho! for a life on the ocean With it’s white caps like filmy lace. Such are the aspirations. Of pretty Veda Chase. I’m mighty stingy with my hand You see, 18 out for a good man, says Wilda, He’s got to be more than a half-baked ham But not quite as good as a string of bologna. I’ll be some man’s joy, says Miss Cliffe, I’ll gladden the heart of some male I’ll take his dictation in any clime, And raise a family as a side line. Naples, Paris, Venice, Rome, Thus far have some been away from home, Miss Everill has to, and that’s no dream, She’s seen them all upon the screen. In a cozy little kitchen Inside a gingham gown We peep in and see Miss Westfall Burning biscuits dark and brown. 65 ODDS AND ENDS Things That Can’t Be Forgotten Mr. Bush and his yellow slips. “Amen” in assembly. Ruth coming to school with her dress in- side-out. The day Jack was suddenly reminded that she was supposed to write an outline for English and then just as suddenly re- gained her composure at having remem- bered she was to be excused. Those Senior pictures! Jack trying to stick a pin through her ear to see if it would hurt. Mr. Eyler and his dear old friend, Senator LaFollette. This Looks Bad: An “A” test paper from Bill Guniss. Ruth and Bill arriving at school at noon. Things That Make Us Shudder: Those death-like class books. Bring paper and pencil to class. Interesting Events: The Fashion Show (passing of classes) Wanted: More foot-room under the table in Civics class. Want to read a good book? — “The Tale of the Jumping Jack” by Edward Kane. In 1980: — “Officer, arrest that man. I believe he’s thinking of smoking.” Eyler and Bradley drive a Dodge over the Cliffe. West-falls out of the back seat into a Bush of Lock-wood. The ambu- lance gives Chase to find the wreck. Please don’t walk on the grass, it dulls the blades.

It was just eight o’clock and. garbed in our knickers and roughing clothes, we were pre- pared to take our Spring vacation. The School Board and Faculty had held council in December and as they were always seriously concerned about our welfare, they decided to let us spend our annual spring vacation week in study. Naturally this did not coincide with our own views, so we packed a lunch, met on the corner and started off for a day in the woods. We chose the woods because we felt a long hike and a day in the open were in harmony with our mood. A vacation, no matter how short, is really not enjoyable unless it is stolen. Thus, our day was a glorious one and one we will long remember. It is said there is always a cloud beneath the silver lining and so it was with us. The cloud hung heavily over us when we returned on Monday morning. Words are not needed to describe the ensuing scene, so we hope you will forgive us in leaving it to your own imagination. M Q Editing the Annual Sunday night Edward happened to be looking over his old letters (we wonder how many and from who) when he ran across the contract for the Annual which said that the Annual must be in by April 1. This happened to be March 29th. First a race was made for the evening paper, then being dazed for a few minutes by the nearness of disaster, having only $150 worth of ads and at least S250 worth as necessary We can be well assured that he passed a restless night. At six-thirty the next morning he rushed over after the Editor-in-chief, and got her out of bed. After a brief consultation it was decided to put every member of the Senior Class to work at once. Consternation reigned among the class that morning. Six typewriters were put to work. Class songs, poems, histories, and other necessary articles were rushed out. The Valedictory, Prophecy, Class Will, and the President’s Address were more than rushed through. We did not attend classes for three days and we stayed up nights till all hours, “working on the Annual”. Classes were interrupted without an “I, if or no.” In spite of all the pessimistic pre- dictions the Annual left for Ypsilanti the night of April 1st. And this is no April Fool. M. M. D. Q. THE NEW SCHOOL How well we remember that first day in the new A. H. S. Thrills and heart throbs! It was an awful mess. Books here, books there, books everywhere, And troubles began the first day on the stairs, To our dismay a teacher was standing Sedate and serene on every landing, “Here you, one step at a time, please, single file.” And by this time we had gone a mile. Our corridor conduct was then discussed We discarded our motto of, “Watch our dust.” And now we enter the building each day, Jumping Grasshoppers! What’ll 1 say? 68 + “Those who think must govern those who toil!” ALGONAC PUBLIC SCHOOL Our Aim: To develop character, as well as mind; To instill and foster the principles of good citizenship.

What three poets would you name if you sat on a hot stove? Dickens Howe it Bums. Why does a dog run with his tongue out? To balance his tail. What noise annoys an oyster? A noisy noise annoys an oyster. ’Tis hard to part with those we love When our hearts are full of hope But ’tis harder still to find a towel When our eyes are full of soap. I enter here the meanest man Who lived or ever will, He threw his wife’s false teeth away To save the grocery bill. Maybelle : But I haven’t any clothes to spring out on. Her “big” brother: never mind, sis, when I get my new car you can spring out on that. + — . Our Advertisers The Progressive Business Men of Algonac George M. Avers Harper Merrill A. P.
