Otto K. Rose was born near Scranton, Pennsylvania and moved to Detroit with his parents while in high
school. During his teen-age years, he served an apprenticeship for the Commercial Electric Supply Company
of Detroit where, fortunately for himself and for Cass Technical High School, he obtained the practical
training that was to shape his career.
He entered Cass as a pupil and graduated in June, 1917. Shortly thereafter the Army called him into service
After basic training, his talent in the field of electricity brought him an assignment which culminated in his
being made a Master Sergeant, in charge of all the electrical equipment, installation and maintenance at
Cass Technical High School was fully aware of the talents that this graduate had shown and so he was
invited to consider a return to his alma mater as a teacher. Meantime he had entered Wayne University.
Otto Rose deservedly holds the esteem of his fellow teachers and of his principals. He is beloved by his
many pupils and by the many graduates upon whose life he exerted an influence.
The Electrical Department as it exists in Cass today bears the imprint of his loving care and of his forceful
Fred J. Fricke retires from the Detroit Public School system in June, 1954, after forty-three years of teach-
ing service, thirty-six of which were spent at Cass Technical High School.
A genuine scholar, he spent many years in graduate study at such institutions as Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, University of Michigan, University of Chicago, Columbia. His interests lay in the field of
mathematics. Meantime, he had already done some teaching. After coming to Detroit he found the time and
opportunity to satisfy another maior interest and ambition, namely, the secrets of machinery. Accordingly,
he spent many spare hours in the school machine shop and even in industrial shops. Thus it happened that
his special talents found him ready to assume the leadership of the Mechanic Arts Curriculum in 1925. He
has been head of the mechanic arts shops for twenty-nine years.
Meticulously exact in details, he held his pupils to rigid standards of machine precision and accuracy. Yet
with all his kindly and patient understanding elicited the full confidence of all with whom he came in contact.
Cass loses a master teacher, a scholar, a great friend.
Miss Helen Fulton, girl's gymnastic teacher, came to Cass in the fall of 193C. After retirement she plans
to spend her time in Richman, Virginia, where she has a home.
Miss Fulton is a graduate of University of Cincinnati. She received her Masters degree from Columbia
A world wide traveler, Miss Fulton visited almost every part of the world.
her friends at Cass hope she will be very happy in her new home in Virginia.
Miss Ruth Yost, a biology teacher, who has been at Cass Technical High School since 1931 is retiring,
but she will live on here at Cass in the memory of her many friends among both the student body and the
faculty. During her teaching career with the Detroit public schools, Miss Yost taught not only biology but
also chemistry, physics and mathematics.
Miss Yost pursued scientific work at Oberlein College where she received her B.A. and at Columbia
University where she received her M.A. in mathematics. However, Miss Yost's educational interests and
accomplishments extend beyond the field of science into law. Miss Yost holds both a master's degree and
a doctor's degree in law.
During the past summers, Miss Yost has traveled extensively throughout the world. Upon retirement she
has been invited to make her home with her sister's family in New Hampshire. She will also devote her
time visiting her many nephews, nieces and other relatives. lt can be said that knowledge, sincerity and a
genuine love of teaching were qualities which made Miss Yost an excellent guide for young people and a
well-liked and respected person by those that really knew her.
