The Hi-Y Club is the 'banding together of a group of purposeful hip school boys who are seeking Christian
ideals for themselves and for the social goup of which they are a part.
The Hi Y movement among the higl schools of America grew out of the need felt by hip school 'boys for a
rallying pomt for those who desired to stand for high ideals, that is, for things that are good as against those
which are not
Membership in the Hi Y is generally open to higx school students who band themselves together in a definite
cause calling for physical efficiency, moral worth, good scholarship, and lives of unselfish service
Early in its development the Hi Y movement adopted as its purpose to create, maintain, and extend throng:
out the chool and community high standards of Christian character Though varying in organization from hidlly
organized large clubs to extremely simple, small groups, this purpose is followed by all the clubs in the movement
The slogan of the Hi Y Club 1S usually associated with the purpose This slogan is frequently stated as the
Four C's Clean L1v'lng, Clean Speech, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Athletics This is the code of ethics that all
Hi Y clubs try to follow and at the same time try to be of service to both the school and to the members in the
Any person who joins a national club such as this can not help but gain valuable experiences that will be
of service to both himself and to the people with whom he associates

The Y-Teens is an organization of girls which originated in 1909 as the Little Girls' Club and was mainly con-
cerned with religion. In 1920 a need for better organization resulted in the Girl Reserves. This c1ub's min
objective was to guide its members toward a good Christian life by helping themselves and others. Again in 19147
the name was changed to Y-Teens, and the club continued in its purpose of guiding girls toward geater cooperation
with others and toward a higx standard of living
The Y Teens at Tech do many service projects during the year with the thought in mind of helping others
Baskets of food for needy families are distributed at Christmas and Thanksgiving, books are collected to give
children in hospitals, and articles of clothing are sent to displaced persons nov living in this country
The girls hold joint meetings with other groups a.nd exchange ideas They help promote activities for teen
agers throughout the city, and twice a year they sponsor a school dance in order to raise money to carry out their
Membership is not limited but is open to anyone who is interested Weekly meetings are held on Monday nights
at the Y W C A , where it is possible to en,3oy all the facilities for recreation that the Y offers
It is sincerely hoped that the Y Teen organization promotes a healthier and happ1er girl

The government of Flint Technical High School always has been operated by the students with the supervision
of the teachers. The central governing body of Tech is the Commission which consists of one person from each
Guidance Group of the school. As every student is a member of a Guidance Group and each Guidance Group elects
its own commissioner from its own Group, each student is a. part of the goverment through representatlon.
Elections take place during the eigmth week of the first semester of each school year, and, of all the officers
elected, only commissioners are granted the power to vote at commission meetings. The officers that work with the
commission are the following:
lah The Student Manager's position is to appoint assistants, survey student needs, and to make recommen-
dations to the Commission
The Director of Finance directs the campaign for Student Union members, handles all Student Union
funds, and keeps a record of how it shall be spent
c The Director of Law's Job is to advise the commission on all matters pertaining to student govern
ment and to interpret the charter which has recently H9501 been revised
The Director of Recreation is in general charge of all recreational activities of the Student Union
as well as an assistant to any other organ1zation's recreational needs
The above four officers are selected through a general election of the student body
The commission elects the Mayor who presides over all commission meetings, the Vice Mayor who substitutes
for the Mayor when necessary, and the Student Clerk who records and files all matters pertaining to student
government activities and carries on necessary communications with individuals contacting the commission
The commissioners take reports back to their guidance groups, who in turn are expected to discuss matters
interest and direct their commissioners to make suggestions for a better Flint Technical High

Tennis at Tech, as at most other schools, has a. slow, uphill struggle in 1ts growth Few boys stick to it
long enough to enjoy the game and to appreciate its virtues They find that lt is really exciting to p1tch one's
skill, endurance , and strategy against those of an opponent They know that they can win a match only by their
main obgectives Another important objective is honesty, whlch we try to develop by acting as our own referees
Also, ve learn to be good hosts to visiting teams, a.nd conversely, we like to make trips to out of c1ty schools
like Lapeer, Owosso, Bay City, Cranbrook, etc
We cannot 'boast of winning many matches against experienced players nor need we be ashamed of the progress
ve have made in developing our game starting from scratch Some of the boys who made noticeable progress are
John Trcka, Carl Peck, Tom Hemingway, Bob Johnson, Cecil Bendush, walt Turner, and Dick Krygrowskz.
We are trying to make tennis a permanent sport at Tech Only lnterested boys can make it so We hope we ll
have enough of them as the years go by

The Tech Eagles, coached by Jerry Udell, ended their 1950 baseball season with a record of 7 wins B-nd 3 de
feats Included in those 7 wins was a 2 to 1 decision over Northern at Bassett Park less than a week after the
Vikings won the Saginaw Valley championship The city class B baseball trophy also was won by our boys as they
walloped St Mike's 12 to 1+ and 12 to 2 in a double header
The Eagles started their season by edging All Saints 5 1+ with Bob Powell leading the team with 3 hits
The next game was with
Next we met St Mary's
collecting 21 hits, we beat
We met Northern ln the
Beecher, and our team absorbed their first defeat of the year 10 8
at Bassett Park with Pete Paul pitching hitless balls for 5 innings and the ham
the Ma.ry's 18 1+
first of our two game series, and we were beaten ls l as Powell got our only hit
In our fifth game we met St Matt's, and our team walked away wlth a 13 5 verdict
In the following game, we were leading the Indlans from Central 7 2 when our defense fell apart, and we
nally lost out 10 8 Dick Nagengast pitched a very f1ne game up to that point, and Dick Jekiel banged out 3 hits
The boys then started to roll and beat Kearsley 6 1+ 1n a very good game At Kearsley Jack Bricker pitched
very good game, and although One Pitch Double Play Nagengast had to relieve him, Jack was the winning pitcher
We then played the double b1ll with the Warriors, with Bricker and Nagengast mowing the Mike's dowm Stan
Bowns led the boys at bat with a homer, a triple, and wo doubles Johnny Mavec collected five singles
Dick Nagengast held the newly crowned Valley Champs from the North End to 5 hits in our next outing and
w1th the Eagles rallying in the slxth inning for 2 runs we came from behind to defeat the Vikings The Eagles
gave Dick very fine support defens1vely It was climaxed by a spectacular doubleplay by B111 Wiebrecht
Bowns, Powell, and Jekiel were the outfielders on the 50 team while the infielders included Jerry Miller
Bob Berry, Don Scott, Bill Howe, Bill Wiebrecht, Johnny Mavec, and Art Schrader The catching was handled by
Gassy Stanick and Joe Ivansco and the pitching by Dick Nagengast, Jack Bricker, and Pete Paul
A great deal of credit for the success of the pitchers both on the Varsity and the Junior Varsity should
go to Chuck Roche who coached them
Johnny Mavec, this year's captain, was selected the most valuable player for the season, and Stan Bowns was
elected captain for the 1951 season
Bill Blamer's J V 's ended the1r 1950 season with 8 games and 1 lost and a 15 inning 3 3 tie with Bendle
Bill Kitsonas was elected honarary captain by the players on the team
