U. S. A. but he has taught in the Philip-
pines for a number of years and has made
a study of educational conditions in many
The other five members of the board
carry out the decrees of the entire board
in the manner best adapted for the bene-
fit of all concerned.
Harry Holmes is very much interested
in M. T. H. S. since he himself is an
alumnus. He can be seen rooting hearti-
ly at all athletic events. He carries on his
share of the duties of the board with the
same vim which has won so many friends
for him in Milford.
Quite a well known young man, both
because of his musical ability and because
of his public works is Maxwell Crawford.
He represents the rural districts of our
community quite ably. Much of his in-
terest is due to the fact that not so long
ago he was a student in M. T. H. S.
Thomas B. Loveless has served on many school boards. He is quite an institu-
tion around Milford in connection with the school and its activities, having gone
to M. T. H. S. when it was in its "babyhood". He is now an active member of
our board and of the executive committee of our Alumni Association.
Another "old faithful" is Earl Smith. Although he was not closely connected
with the school in his early life, he has been taking an active interest for a num-
ber of years past.
William Hasselbring is the handy man of the board. Whenever we find a leak
in the roof or anything like that we call on Mr. Hasselbring. He comes running
across the street and before you know it everything is "ship shape". He also is
quite musical, so, if sometimes sweet music is heard atop M. T. H. S. you'll know
it's Mr. Hasselbring.
Each of these men eagerly backs all measures for the good of M. T. H. S.
and through their united efforts we can observe the progress our school has made
Upon Superintendent Vernon L. Plummer falls the responsibility of convey-
ing the necessary decisions and decrees of the school board to the faculty and stu-
dent body. In order to accomplish this end he must work with the board and
help them in all possible ways. In evidence of their co-operation, M. T. H. S. has
to its credit another successful school year.

PROMINENT PROGRESSIVE MEN OF COMMUNITY ELECTED TO
PROMOTE ADVANCEMENT OF MILFORD TOWN-
SHIP HIGH SCHOOL
Signifying their interest in the development of education in Milford, men of
this community have, in past years willingly accepted membership on the successive
school boards, the organization most essential to the progress of the school.
This group has as its objective the uplceep of the school building and its fix-
tures, the direction of a course of study and the selection of capable instructors.
The successful attainment of this objective leads to the awakening of the interests
of the citizens and students in the school as an institution, involving the cur-
riculum and athletics, as well as the establishment of various other organizations.
The current school board, which was elected by popular vote, holds its meet-
ings on the first Monday of each month. The members of this board include
prominent, active and retired business men and agriculturalists, who represent the
community at large.
The business of the school is carried forward under the direction of our able
President William Lyons, who has spent most of his life in and around Milford.
He has served on several of our school boards and has successfully completed this
year in spite of many difficulties.
In close co-operation with him is Secretary S. O. Wright, a man well informed
in the taslc of running schools, for not only is he acquainted with schools in the

Mr. Plummer is well acquainted with the meaning of the word "work',. In his
early childhood he worked on his father's farm and in the village nearby to earn
enough money to attend high school. Due to his amazing scholarship and persever-
ence, he was advised to continue his studies. With the aid of some friends but most-
ly under his own power he attended the I. S. N. U. where he made great progress in
the field of chemistry. He has attended Columbia University, the University of
Illinois, University of Chicago and several other educational institutions. He has his
Master's Degree and is well on the way toward his Doctor's Degree. He is very
interested in agriculture and all branches of science. He is a very capable man,
indeed, and has dilligently worked with the board to further our advancement in
this, our last year.
A STAFF THAT REALLY COOPERATES
The teachers are the connecting link between the principal and the students, and
this faculty is no "missing link". Each one backs the others' enterprises and all are
firmly behind Mr. Plummer.
Missf Kimmell spent her instruction period at I. S. N. U. where she learned oh,
so much about-French and Latin and how to be cheerful. She always wears a
smile in all kinds of weather under all conditions, and, boys and girls, a good dis-
position makes you healthy. That's why Miss Kimmell is gym teacher. Her pep
and spirit made her advisor of the Boosters' Club and she has been an invaluable
asset all year.
Whenever you see a classroom that is full all the time, during classes, before and
after, that's Miss Firchau's. Everybody gathers in her room to catch a spark of her
vast knowledge or a peek at her grade book. She teaches a variety of subjects, Eng-
lish, History and Economics, and perhaps could help you in a little "math" if you
asked her real nicely. She knows plenty because she went to U. of I. and is still
going in her spare moments. Miss Firchau is a friend of all of Milford and the stu-
Iowa, that's where the tall corn grows-and that's not all it grows, because we
have an Iowa product in our midst- Miss Lester. Wlmat she doesn't know about
music, just doesn't count, that's all. She has very successfully conducted glee clubs,
choruses, orchestra, and band this year. Under her direction the operetta "jerry
of Jericho Roadv' was a huge success. Cn top of all this she also knows her verbs
and nouns, just ask the Freshmen and Sophomores. She claims Cornell College as
her Alma Mater and they should be proud of her.
