Mas HILDEGARDE WENDELL sci-IRADER ADELINE FIRCHAU SLOTER HOFMEISTER 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. I 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- dents' "Pal',. 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. DORIS SCHNEIDER

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 lands. 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. Principal 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 this year. 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.

ALICE KIMMELL A stranger, on entering a Science class one day, said, "Where's your teacher, little girl?" Miss Schneider drew herself up to the full five feet of her height and coldly replied "I'm the teacher". The visitor was properly squelched. In spite of her youth Miss Schneider is a very competent instructor. She even has a Master's Degree in Science-a big load for such a small person, but she bears up bravely and goes on teaching Freshmen all about oxygen, inclined planes, and plants. She is an alumna of the U. of I. and has backed our Purple and White-with as much pep and go as she did the Orange and Blue. Here we have a lady who has something no other person in school has acquired -two names. However, she is known to all students as Miss Sloter. She, too, went to I. S. N. U. where she learned-no, not readin', ritin', and 'rithmetic, but typ- ing, shorthand and bookkeeping. Due to her great teaching ability and likeable personality she has been a member of the faculty of M. T. H. S. for a number of years and all the Seniors are sorry to leave her. When it comes to judging contests or Ag shows, Mr. Schrader is right there. He learned all about cows at the U. of I. and for the past few years has been trans- ferring his vast knowledge to Milford's boys. Prior to the last three years he also taught Chemistry and General Science. I-Ie has been very helpful in athletics and all other school activities. He is usually elected Junior class advisor because he puts on such good "Proms". Mr. Schrader is a prominent citizen of Milford and is ben- eficial to both town and school. For a hard working man, please turn to Exhibit A., Mr. Cohee. After slaving with a football team for three months, he starts right in on basketball and then, without a pause, begins track. He seems never to run down and is sad only when his team loses and he has to wear a black tie. The coaching job is enough to wear out an ordinary man, but he alyso teaches Math. and Civics. They must feed the students Grape-Nuts in Indiana. Mr. Cohee has done work at University of Chi- cago, University of Indiana and Butler, but you should hear him talk about his favorite Alma Mater, Purdue. Eureka! I have found it! Found what? Miss Merritt's school-Eureka. That's where she obtained her first degree. She received her second at U. of I., a M. S. And all of her pupils will get her third degree if they don't get their lessons. They learn how to sew a fine seam, to cook and to eat properly. She's the last word when it comes to planning a party, and if you want the latest styles, just ask Miss Merritt!
