That sounds strange, doesn’t it} But strange as it may seem, there is striking resemblance between the two. A factory is a workshop where differ- ent products are made and manufactured. The school also is a workshop in which products, although different, are made and produced. Let’s take a little trip through one of our modern factories. As we enter, we are astounded by the many workers, machines, belts, and pulleys which meet our eyes. " Certainly ,” you say, " we can- not find a comparison with our school here. Listen to the hum of the motors and the rapidity with which the belts and pulleys turn. Of a surety the writer is mistaken! ' ’ But wait ! Perhaps we can ex- plain this little mystery. We shall divide the different parts of the factory into three classes: the raw mate- rials, the workers, and the finished products. These we shall try to apply to our school. Certainly the raw materials could be compared to the students that enter school. They arc all diamonds’ ' which need cutting and polishing. They are " diamonds in the rough’’. That sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? 1 he workers we shall call the instructors, or the teachers in our school. In fac- tories the employers take great care in selecting their workers. The workers must be skilled in their work, so that the products which they turn out may be of the highest quality. Likewise the instructors in our school must be skilled in their particular work, so that the products which they produce may meet the tests which the products arc sure to receive. ( The mystery is slowly unfolding, isn’t it?). By this time I suppose you will have guessed who the finished products are. Of course, they are the graduates. The products have gone through the different refining processes and are now ready to test their worth. The products which a factory manu- factures arc always carefully inspected by the general public. This is also true with re- spect to the graduates. Knowing this, the instructors have done their utmost to pro- duce products which can meet the scrutinizing eye of the public. The Senior class of 1938 is now about to graduate. How grateful we are to the " workers”, and to the community which has made possible these educational facilities. We sincerely hope you will like the " products ” which DeMotfc High School will haic to offer this year. W. M.

During our first year we were guided by our sponsor, Mr. Jarrett. Ralph Myers was chosen president; Albert Bclstra, vice-president; Sadie Peterson, secretary; and Jeanne Swart, treasurer. Our class colors were rose and silver; the class flower, lily-of- the-valley; and class motto, " Honor Lies in Honest Toil”. After a few weeks the Senior class initiated us, making us fullfledged travelers. After a few months Conrad Vander Veen left ' as. On December eleventh we enter- tained the other passengers with an Indiana Day program; later in the year we gave the Seniors a party. The following fall, we received the new title " Sophomores”. This year Bill Ham- stra, Alice Klein p, Marie DeBruin, Andrew Woudema, Arthur Budasz, and Harold Myers did not return. A new member, Edward Grunwald, entered. Sadie Peterson was elected president; Johanna Hoffman, vice-president ; Laura Kooy, secr etary; John Konovsky, treasurer. Mr. Lammey was our sponsor. We sponsored a Hallowe’en party and presented a Thanksgiving Day program. Early in the year Lloyd Prowcll entered the class from Chicago. In the succeeding year, as Juniors, we elected our officers as follows : president, Lloyd Prowell; vice-president, Jeanne Swart; secretary, Laura Kooy; treasurer, Edward Boer. Two students entered from Kniman — Olga Hanewich and Chester Daniels. Lloyd Carter and Carl Spurgeon did not return. Madonna Banks spent the first three months of her Junior year with us. On December eight we successfully presented our class play, " Aunt Samanthy Rules the Roost”. Our program on " Washington’s Birthday was equally as good. We gave the Seniors a pleasant farewell banquet. Class rings were ordered so we might have a reminder of the pleasant times we had on the good ship " DeMotte High School”. This year Mr. Odom was our sponsor, until he left us in March. Then we chose Mr. Ewart to take his place. Our class colors were navy blue and Chinese red. The fall of 1937 came and we were allowed to enter the last lap of our journey — Seniors at last! Only one member, Lloyd Prowell, was missing. Later, however, Edward Grunwald left us. Our class officers this year are: Edward Boer, president; Ralph Myers, vice-president; Laura Kooy, secretary; Bill Shuey, treasurer; Mr. Ewart, sponsor. We readopted our class motto, chosen when we were Freshmen. Our class colors are black and gold, matching our class rings. We plan to publish the third annual " Keen Keener”, so named two years age) by one of our class members. Our class play, " Here Comes the Prince”, will be presented March 22. Our journey across the " Sea of Learning” has been long and happy, but now we must go out into the world and prove ourselves as men and women. With many tears, we bid farewell to our fellow travelers. Page eight KEEN KEENER 1938 SENIOR CLASS U9ILL By Jeanne Swart We, the Senior class of 193 8, being of sound mind and body, and of excellent judgment in matters both educational and otherwise, must, as every student does sooner or later, pass from this scene of learning commonly known as DeMotte High School. So, in order to follow the custom of a time such as this, the class wishes to make a last will and testament. Hear then, all ye who have cars, the following document, duly drawn and sworn to: Item 1. We give and bequeath to our beloved faculty our sincere gratitude and appreciation for leading us to the best of their ability through these four years of learning. Now that we are about to depart from their presence, they will be able to spend their nights in peaceful rest and slumber (we hope). Item II. If is the desire of each of the " big-hearted and generous” Seniors to leave a certain individual trait to a member in the class of ’39. May these fortunate recipients appreciate and use to their advantage the valuable possessions ivhicb arc now to be be- stowed upon them. I. Sadie Peterson leaves her gift of " continuous wisecracking” to Theodore Moolcnaar . May this trait benefit his class as it did ours. II. Melva Barker leaves his ability to argue about matters pertaining to govern- ment to Dorothy Raska. May she write an interesting Civics book. III. Marguerite Wright bequeaths her lovely soprano voice to Leonard Mak. She hopes his name may be in lights some day. IV. John Konovsky wills his chauffeuring position to Wilmer Kooy. May Wil- mer’s " Chevy” do the job as well as " Knobber’s”. . Dorothy " Leek wills her bashfulness to Angelinc Boezcman. May she use it wisely! VI. Robert Akers wills the " Indian in him” to Ruth Orsburn. He asks that she take much thought in selecting her scalping victims. VII. Lucille Dexter leaves ther outstanding features; namely, her shortness and her black hair and eyes to Dorothy Walstra. May she enjoy the change next year. VIII. Albert Belstra agrees that six feet should be enough height for him ; there- fore, he wills his six surplus inches to Maurice St ruble. May this gift help gain many basketball victories next year. IX. Coral Stevenson and Bill S huey wish to leave their beautiful dark locks to Max Bahler. Here’s hoping that Sophomore co-eds find them attractive. X. Olga Hanewich leaves the deep stirring tones of her voice to Jcnette Knip, with instructions to use the gift to good advantage (as Olga did).

It’s the senior class of the year thirty-eight, And concerning them, I’ll try to relate. We chose Mr. Ewart as our sponsor and guide. I’ll bet he sometimes wished he had died Before accepting the job. But I’m sure, aren’t you, That he’ll feel kinda sad when we bid him adieu ? The first of the members is Robert Akers. He’s a descendant of the Quakers. At one time sailing was his great ambition. But now to be a ladies’ man is his mission. Next comes Melva Barker, you know. In getting to class he’s usually slow; But, sooner or later, he’ll always come, And then things really start to hum ! Here’s Albert Belstra, only six feet six; He can’t get the " hang ” of bookkeeping tricks. But he forgets his troubles and he’s happy once more When he’s trying like mad to raise our basketball score. Here comes our president, Edward Boer, A very noble scholar, to be sure. Who knows, but that in the future bright He’ll be a man of power and might. Then comes Anna, that quiet lass, Who’s a great attribute to the class. When April comes, we’ll all feel blue To think, Anna, that we’ll say " Farewell” to you. Chester Daniels is the next. He hates to study from any text. He’s very bashful when girls are near, But for boys like him — there’s a leap year! Then comes Lucille, short and dark, In this world she’ll make her mark. To the heart of many a girl and boy She has added her bit of joy. Page ten KEEN KIE ' .NER 1938 g mnil lll lllii-iiimiii.urnniiiniiiTmni i i i ii i m rfTT-; And here comes Olga, ■ with pretty blonde hair. When anything happens — Olga’s there! Deep down in her heart, she’s rather cruel — V amps every boy in the whole high school. Next of the group is sweet Johanna. She always starts singing when she hears a piano. She rates the title of " Jo, the fair ” With her laughing blue eyes and light brown hair. It took Johnny Konovsky, age seventeen, To finally get Miss Mary Jean. For a while we feared ’twould ne’er be done But our senior tried it and hurrah, he won! As our secretary, Laura can’t be surpassed. But she can’t lose weight very fast. As in algebra, Latin, and civics she shines, Very little time for the boys she finds. Ralph Myers is our athletic star. His name is known, both near and far ; For in baseball, track, and basketball — He’s a leader in them all. While writing this, I have the mumps. And it makes me feel so blue That 1 won’t write anything about myself. I don’t blame me, do you? Next comes fames Recker, our booming bass. There’s usually a smile on his face, But now and then he gets provoked, And then be careful, or you’ll be choked! Doris Schwanke has at last found joy By winning the heart of a junior boy. ’ Twill be one of the happiest days in her life When she becomes a Suffern wife. William Isaac Shuey is a very handsome boy, And to any girl’s heart, he could bring joy. But for a girl Bill will never fall Because he’s much more interested in basketball. Coral is the gal with lovely black hair, Sparkling blue eyes, and a complexion fair. She has lots of rhythm and is loads of fun. Any boy seeking a girl friend? She’s the one!

Where arc the rest of my classmates? Coral Stevenson is about the only member that I have kept in touch with during the years. That is probably because we took nurses training together. Coral is now in Wisconsin. I am stewardess on the Continental Airline route between San Francisco and Chicago. May 11, 1948 — Busy though 1 be, I must jot down the big events of the day. As 1 was inspecting the safety belts on my passengers, I recognized Albert Belstra and Sadie Peterson, now Mrs. Belstra. They were on their honeymoon and seemed to be sit- ting on the top of the world. June 2, 1948 — The company has engaged a new pilot and co-pilot. The pilot is now Bill Shuey with Bob Akers acting as co-pilot. I know now why the boys could sit gazing longingly out of the assembly windows. They had high ideals. July 3, 1948 — Many distinguished people are enroute to the Independence Day celebration at Denver. Ralph Myers, editor of the New York Herald, is taking a group of friends including Mayor John Konovsky and his wife, the former Jeanne Swart. September 24, 1948 — am recuperating from the crash which occurred on August fifth. For days I had lain in a semi-conscious state suffering from a fractured skull. Awakening I found myself at the ranch home of Laura Kooy, now Mrs. James Recker. It was from her 1 gathered the details. Several passengers were killed, but our pilot and co-pilot had escaped uninjured. Having recovered enough to travel, I decided to visit my home town. November 7, 1948 — Arrived at DeMotte. The town has certainly progressed. Among the improvements is a public library. Lucille Dexter acts as librarian. 1 also visited the school. It seemed strange to see Marguerite Wright as the teacher of the first grade. In Daniel’s Meat Market who should 1 meet but Melva Barker, now a prominent truck farmer living at Stoutsburg. December 22, 1948 — I have returned to my duties as stewardess on the airline. We have a lovely new plane. Bill informed me that he is to be married soon. I would like to meet the future Mrs. January 15, 1949 — Among today’s passengers is a young paralysis victim. He is accompanied by Dr. Edward Boer. February 7, 1949 — I met Bill’s fiancee, Miss 0 ga Hanewich. April 21, 1949 — Among passengers today were: Dorothy Z eck, saleslady for the Velva Down Sofa Pillow Co.; therefore, she is prepared for any shock that she might get. Also Governor Johanna Hoffman and her secretary, Anna Boersma, were among the passengers. It has been one year since 1 began my work on the airline. During that time I have met all my classmates. As they go on their journeys, so must I.

Page fourteen KEEN KEENER I rrmniiiiiijm 1938 SOPHOITIORE CLASS HISTORIC Ow the fourth day of September, 1936, we entered upon our Freshman year with high hopes for our careers. Under the leadership of our class officers, Robert Iluhn, president-, Dora Wright, vice-president; Clarence Boczcman, sec- retary; and Ruby Myers, treasurer; we chose green and gold as our class colors and Green, But Not Fresh ” as our class motto. A wiener-roast in Grevenstuk’s woods for our class, teas followed by the initiation, given all too willingly by the Seniors. All survived. We then made plans for giving an Indiana Day program, and closed the year with a treasure hunt, terminating at Frame’s bill. Of the twenty-seven pupils who had enrolled as Freshman, twenty-six an- swered the roll call the next fall. This year Clarence Boezeman was elected presi- dent; Selma Reckcr, vice-president; Doris Frame, secretary; and Helen Zeck, treasurer. Blue and silver were chosen for the class colors, and our motto this year is " Forward Ever, Backward Never”. We sponsored the Thanksgiving program and have also had two parties : a wiener-roast and a watch- party held at the home of Mrs. Bernard. HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ’41 The officers of the Freshman class are as follows: President, Cornelius Swieringa; vice-president, Kenneth Zeck; secretary, Chris Walstra; treasurer, Jack Evans. The sponsor is Mr. Boron. We were initiated into high school on the night of September 24, and held our class party on October 8. Also we gave an Indiana Day program on De- cember 10, and on February 5 we entertained the Seniors. Our motto is " Success Comes in Cans; Not in Can’ts”. The class colors are scarlet and silver. Page fifteen 1938 Page sixteen Page seventeen KEEN KEENER 1938 SENIOR CLASS WILL (Continued from page 9) XI. Chester Daniels leaves his ability to slumber in the assembly to Mary Jean Bernard. Who knows . . . she may need that time to catch up on her sleep! XII. Anna Boersma wills her typing accuracy to Albert Terpstra. May he oc- cupy the top rung of the accuracy ladder all next year. XIII. Edward Boer , our president, and Laura Kooy, our secretary, each leave one half of their abundant amount of " gray matter ” to Reece Whitley. May he go through college in two years " cum laude” . XIV. Jeanne Swart wills her briefness in stature to Mildred Tysen. rhat ought to make it easier to pass through doorways. XV. Ralph Myers leaves his efficient art of note writing to Fred Moolenaar. He wishes him much success in the future. XVI. Doris Schwanke wills her heart to George Suffern. Eventually, why not now ? XVII. James Reckcr leaves his hand-pumping ability to Gertrude Pruis. More power to her ! XVIII. Johanna Hoffman wills her pleasant smiles to Mildred Anderson. May a frown never again be seen on her face. XIX. Last, but not least, we, the 3 8’s, hereby donate, give, impose, bequeath, and hand a lemon to the 3 9’s, this being our last chance ! SENIOR CLASS POEM (Continued from page 11) Jeanne Swart, though she’s not very tall, Has a personality that wins us all. She is talented, attractive, and full of cheer, And I’m sure she’ll be missed when she’s gone next year. Marguerite Wright I’m sure you’ve seen, She’s engaged to a young man named Gene. She sings like a lark when she’s feeling gay — Gee, maybe she’ll be an opera star some day. Now for the last member of the class, Dorothy " Leek, a witty lass. Her laugh is contagious, her stories are funny, And when she is near, everything’s sunny. There, our class has passed in revue, And we’re about ready to bid you adieu. I hope that you have all found joy By thus meeting each senior girl and boy. Now the time has come that we must depart. We each have the wish, deep down in our heart, That whether you end up in the poor house, or own a large estate You’ll still remember this Senior class of nineteen thirty-eight.

Losing only one, Myers, by grad nation , prospects look a great deal brighter than last fall. Terborg pitched some mighty fine balls, and, if he returns to school, watch out, because Bahler ' at short, Evans at second, C. Moolenaar at first, Huhn at catch, and the other Moolenaars, Peterson, and Boezeman sprinkled around the outfield ivill cause plenty of trouble for the opposition. BASKETBALL 1937-1938 Suffering one of the greatest losses by graduation that DeMotte has ex- perienced in recent years, basketball was on the losing end when, from the teams of ’ 36 -’ 37 , nine boys of the first eleven received their diplomas. Every- thing looked dark when Coach Jarre ft issued the first call for the hardwood recruits. Nowhere was to be found a group of such small boys, and nowhere a more inexperienced group; nevertheless a team had to be molded from such raw products. Facing a difficult schedule against teams which had for the main part kept their first squads intact from the previous year, DeMotte set out upon her 1937-’3 8 basketball trip as a decided underdog. Everybody was going to beat DeMotte. Well, just about everybody did beat DeMotte. However, we did have a few high spots. To start everything off, Wheat field knocked all the starch out of the midgets from DeMotte in the first game of the season — they lost track of the Page twenty-one KEEN KEENER i 1938 BASKETBALL (Continued) final score. It was just two weeks later that the Indians found themselves for a while, long enough to defeat Fair Oaks in as thrilling a ball game as one would want to see. Things turned just the reverse following that sweet victory. Sickness, plus several cases of the mumps entered in and took their toll. De- Motte was down for a long while; the only bright spot came just before Christ- mas when an inspired victory was earned over Tefft. By the way we wont even mention the Kankakee Valley tournament . The Indians continued to get scalped until one glorious week-end in Jan- uary, the fourteenth and fifteenth, the birthday of Coach farrett. The boys didn’t know it until after the games, but they had given the coach as fine a birthday present as he could wish for with two well-earned victories over hail Oaks and Kouts. Even the second team contributed its part with a hair-split- ting win over the Kouts’ seconds. Victory didn’t knock again until San Pierre was trimmed on the home floor the last week of the season; however, all the joy of that was snuffed out when, as a grand climax, Medaryville and Hebron " tromped ” the Indians on successive nights. Yes, DcMotte was the underdog in ’37-’3 8, but what will next year bring ? Three fine ball players will be lost by graduation when Myers, S huey, and Bel- stra receive their sheepskins. Tribute must be paid to these boys who stuck it out from start to finish with a group of inexperienced boys as teammates. Next year’s team will no doubt be built around Bahler, the Moolenaar boys, Struble, Tcrpstra, Suffcrn, Boezeman, Huhn, Evans, Z eck, and yes, several other good and experienced ball players. We’re warning everybody right now — Watch out for those Indians next year!!!

When we joined, we knew we were preparing ourselves for the future, such as to meet any situation which might arise, and to know just what to do, and when. This club was organized on September 23, 1937. All officers were elected during the first meeting. Jeanne Swart was elected president-, Sadie Peterson, vice-president-, Mary Jean Bernard, secretary, and Ralph Myers, treasurer. We chose Miss Hewitt as sponsor of our club. We began this organization with twenty-two members. By the next meet- ing three more had joined, making a total of twenty-five. At our meetings, xve discussed and answered various problems about good manners. We demonstrated introductions and behavior in public places. As a result of this organization, we have learned to conduct ourselves properly and have put the knowledge of etiquette into practice. The Grade Etiquette Club ivas organized in the same manner and for the same purpose as was the High School Etiquette Club. The only difference being that it is composed of members of the seventh and eighth grades, with Mrs. Bernard as sponsor. THE FOREIQU CORRESPOUDEUCE CLUB TJoe Foreign Correspondence Club was organized for the purpose of mak- ing friends abroad through personal correspondence. This is the third year students of our school have been interested in corresponding with students of English in foreign countries. This year letters have been written to England, Hawaii, Philippine Islands, Australia, Germany, Peru, Wales, Denmark, Czechoslovakia and other coun- tries. The officers of the club are-. Genevieve Kooy, president-, Ruth Dexter, vice- president; Cornelius Swier in ga, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Llewellyn is our sponsor.

All of the members in the club are high school students who feel it their duty to boost as high as possible the sports activities of the school. This club took the responsibility of getting the basketball schedules and tickets printed. It also sponsored the sale of the season tickets. The Athletic Club does very well as a promoter of fair play and good sportsmanship. Twenty -three members make up the club, which has the following of- ficers: Max Bahlcr, president ; Jack Evans, vice-president-, Johanna Hoffman, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Jarrett was again chosen to act as sponsor. JUNIOR ATHLETIC CLUB In September of this school year the Junior Athletic Club, organized by students of the seventh and eighth grades, elected the following officers : presi- dent, Arthur Schoonveld ; vice-president, Howard Rowen; secretary-treasurer, Roberta Stevenson. The purpose of this club is to promote sportsmanship in every way possible. Some of the activities of the club were: selling D. H. S. arm bands and laps of school colors, selecting grade yell leaders for grade basketball games and for assisting with high school games, and making and posting " No Smoking ” signs in different parts of the building for the benefit of visitors who come to the school on different occasions. Through co-operation of outsiders and the school the club attempts to keep the school gymnasium in good order. The one goal for which the Junior Athletic Club strives is to help make the DcMottc School highly respected in all of its relations with others.

Laura — " My hands are so chapped. Can you tell me what will keep it away?” Anna — " Onion will keep all the chaps away.” She’s a suicide blonde, dyed by her own hand. Mr. Ewart — " Why aren’t you wearing a hat?” Mr. Llewellyn — " I bought some hair tonic from Art Burk and I want to show him he’s a ' gypper ' .” Barney — " l saw something last night that you’d never get over.” Mr. Boron — " What was it?” Barney — " The moon.” A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small package. Mr. Ewart — " Now, 1 don’t want any- more talking in here.” Omeyr — " O. K. It’s a bargain.” Miss Angie — " Why aren’t you writ- ing?” Calvin — " Ain’t get no pencil.” Miss Angie — " Where’s your gram- mar?” Calvin — " She’s dead.” If a man is wrong but says he’s right, he has coinage. But, if he’s right and says he’s wrong, he’s married. Mr. Boron — " Look! There’s an electric fence.” Miss Hewitt — " Oh! How shocking.” John — " Do you care if I kiss you?” No answer. John — " Do you care if I kiss you?” No answer. John — " Are you deaf?” Mary — " No, are you dumb?” Bob — " Everything seems brighter after I’ve been out with you.” Shirley — " It should.

Now I know why I flunked that . . . test.” Polite Edward — " Oh! So sorry I bumped into you. I didn’t see you.” Christine — " Flatterer.” A man who marries a woman for her looks usually gets plenty. Albert — ( After Sadie had turned him down) " Tomorrow they’ll drag the Kan- kakee River for me.” Sadie — " Oh! Please don’t do anythin ? like that.” Albert — " But they won’t find me be- cause I’m going home to Mama.” Page thirty KEEN KEENER 1938 TERM CALERDAR Sept. 3 — School begins. More fun ! !
