SIDNEY C. MITCHELL Superintendent Sidney C. Mitchell recently received high honors when an article appeared in the Survey Graphic explaining the origination and development of the Benton Harbor Plan of Correspondence Study. In part it reads as follows: Quote-The idea of the "Ben- ton Harbor Plan" struck Mr. Mitchell when he became principal of the high school in his home town, Benton Harbor. If he could get the co-operation of the corres- pondence schools, he thought, offering their vocation of courses to pupils who could not, would not, or should not go to college it might solve his education problem. Unquote. This was his plan, and he carried it out to the fullest extent, making the Benton Harbor High School widely known for its correspondence course. Mr. Mitchell is very much admired and respected by the student body. CHARLES A. SEMLER Mr. Charles A. Semler has been the principal of Ben- ton Harbor High School since 1925. He received his B. A. degree at Earlham College, his M. A. degree from the U. of Michigan, and has done graduate work in school administration at the University of Chicago. 'He, as the adviser of our Student Council, takes an active part in many school activities. Because of his deep interest in the students, his wholehearted cooperation, and his knowledge of their problems, he has won their respect and support. WE HONOR We, who have worked for three years of high school with Mr. Stanley, our adviser, honor him. We who have accepted his advice in our high school years admire his judgment. We who have scrubbed terraces for last year's junior-Senior Prom, cleaned up after school parties, nailed concession stands together, chosen Carnival Kings and Queens, and d'one general carnival work with him, respect his patience and perseverance. We who have had him as a friend may be parted from him as we go out into the world, but his friendship will forever be one of our sweetest memories as memories are collected from out of the past. To show our appreciation of his patience, kindness, advice, and friendship, we take this small way of saying "thanks". Mr. Stanley, we, the class of ninteen thirty-eight honor you.

Left to Right: Kuschel, Cunningham, Elson, SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS ' Lerch. Wlllmeng SENIOR CLASS HISTORY The Senior Class of 1938 has had an eventful high school life since it first became a part of Benton Harbor High School. The Freshman Class, instead of entering Senior High School after graduating from the eighth grade, continued in the Junior High building, which took care of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. The Freshman Class was the leader in most of the social activities and sports in the ninth grade, one of the largest social events of the year being the ninth grade party sponsored by the Freshmen just before leaving Junior High. Just after the Sophomore Class entered High School, the following othcers were elected to lead the class: President, William Gridleyg Vice-president, Eleanor Mary Fletcherg Secretary, Minnie Arentg Treasurer, Robert Volk, Athletic Manager, William Bellows, Aldermen, Roy Elson and Joyce Anderson. The activities of the Sophomore Class consisted chiefly of participation in club work, inter- class athletics and social functions. The two most important social functions of the year were the Hallowe'en and St. Patrick's Day parties. Both proved successful and were attended by large crowds. Upon entering Senior High many of the students joined the bands and entered into the athletics of the school, where they proved themselves worthy of the recognition that many received throughout their high school days in both of these departments. In our Junior year the class of '38 was led by Roy Elson as Presidentg Paul Benke, Vice- presidentg Eloise Cunningham, Secretaryg Robert Stanford, Treasurerg Russell Patterson, Athletic Managerg Jeanne Tillstrom and Joyce Anderson, Board of Directors, George Walbridge, John Arent, Robert Albrecht and William Summerfelt, Aldermen. The class of '38 was the first to purchase class rings during their Junior year. The out- standing social event of the year was the annual Junior-Senior prom sponsored by the Junior Class. The party was held in the high school gym during the latter part of May. The Juniors decorated the auditorium and Filstrup Feld for the Baccalaureate services and graduation exercises which were held in June. The outstanding athletic event of the Junior boys was the defeat of the Seniors in the annual Junior-Senior fights, held behind the high school. During their Senior year Roy Elson was re-elected Presidentg Eloise Cunningham, Vice- president: Frances Willmeng, Secretary, Winifred Lerch, Treasurerg William Bellows and Betty Sunday. Board Members. The Seniors sponsored many successful parties throughout the year along with the annual Senior play, "Fly Away Home", which was directed by Max E. Fuller, the drama- tics instructor in the high school. Our annual "Bum Day" and "Skip Day" provided much enter- tainment for the Seniors as well as the under-classmen in school. Throughout the high school days of the class of '38 they have been leaders in club-work, athletics, and social functions and have worked hard for the honor of their school. They sincerely hope this spirit will continue after they have gone, and new faces and personalities take their places in the leadership of Benton Harbor High School.
