J ames johnson During the span of fifty years in which Boards of Education of our school have been issuing diplomas to their high school graduates, we find the function of the school has remained very much the same. New terms have found their ways to alphabetical arrangements in our dictionaries, but upon investigation we find the biggest difference is in terminology. Responsibility of the school has increased tremendously. When other agencies fail that are instrumental in the education of the whole child, boards of education are confronted with a complex problem of carrying on the urgent work. Prevention of crime, character building, occupational adjustment, and training for leisure time are assigned by society as a school responsibility. Fifty years ago the general public accepted the principles of democ- racy without discussion. In 1940, there are many "isms" to be discussed other than Americanism. The Millington Board of Eucation appreciates that the primary purpose of the educational institution is to teach good citizenship. They have expressed themselves in favor of a school program that will allow social fortification for the boys and girls of this community which will enable them to function in a democratic society.

Of course, the outstanding event this year was the Strawberry Festival where we crowned Harry Spender "Queen" and Elizabeth McMahon "King" Our fresh- man class officers were: President, Harry Spenderg Vice-President, Patricia Kennedy, Secretary, Beverly Blackmerg Treasurer, Gordon Gibsong Adviser, Mr. Meachum. President Spender repre- sented the class in the Student Council. It was during our freshman year that our school was enlarged by the addition of a large brick structure on the east side of the old building. The officers during our sophomore year were: President, Robert June, Vice-President, Patricia Kennedyg Secretary, Jeanne Enog Treasurer, Francis Charboneaug Adviser, Miss Dalton. Presi- dent June and Elizabeth Rowell represented our class in the Student Council. Presenting the play "The Life of Riley," and entertaining the seniors at the Junior Prom kept us busy during the latter part of our junior year. Our officers during this year were: President, Ruth Deyog Vice-President, Francis Charboneaug Secretary, Leona McNeal, Treasurer, Harold Gibsong Advisers, Miss Kirk and Miss Dalton. President Deyo, Albertine Forsyth and Gordon Gibson represented the class in the Student Council. On November 17, this year, we presented our Senior play, "Aunt Susie Shoots the Works." Then, because our class is the fiftieth graduating class of this institution, we decided to commem- orate the anniversary by publishing "The Cardinal," the first annual since 1937. The members of our class have been very active in outside activities all during our high school career. Of the forty-three graduates, twenty are active in music, twelve have participated in dramatlcs and public speaking, and fourteen won recognition in athletics. Those seniors who graduated with honors are: Beverly Blackmer Leona McNeal Koral Foley Elizabeth Rowell Albertine Forsyth Doris Seelye Patricia Kennedy Harry Spender Baccalaureate services were held at the Baptist Church House, Sunday evening, June 2.

D H Page Twenty-Eight Band The Millington High School Band has progressed well during the season 1939-1940, although there has been a slight decrease in member- ship. Under the competent direction of Mr. Edmund Irwin, our instructor, the band has made several appearances which have received much favor- able comment. They appeared in uniform at every football game on the Alumni Field and were present at all the basketball meets. During the basketball season, the band was divided into an A group and a B group, each taking its turn to play at the games.

"Julius Caesar" The Sophomore class production of the immortal Shakespearean play, "Julius Caesar," was rather a unique-event. The members of the tenth grade, under the direction of Miss Kirk, rewrote the famous drama into twentieth century English and presented it in the Baptist Church House on February 9, 1940. The historic tragedy tests the dramatic ability of great actors and actresses. The characters wore dresses in long white tunics and togas similar to those worn by the ancient Romans. All members of the class had parts and tried to portray to the audience what they believed to be in the hearts of those people who lived in Caesar's time. Each member of the class had to write three invitations to friends and relatives so that there would be an audience for the performance. March 13, the class held a Roman banquet at which Roman food was served in the same style as for those famous Mediterranean people. After the food had been served, the students gave speeches befitting the characters they portrayed in the play. The banquet finished a unit of work in connection with "Julius Caesar," and marked the first time the Sophomore class had staged such a drama. Public Speaking The 1939-1940 public speaking class was organized last fall under the direc- tion of Miss Tteva Kirk. An original Constitution was written. The officers are president, vice president and secretary. These hold office for only six meet- ings, so that each member may have a chance to hold office during the year. One requirement of the class is that the whole clss make one public appear- ance durin the ear. This ear the class made its a earance before the Com- g Y Y PP munity Club in celebration of Lincoln's Birthday. Page Thirty Tivo Queen Aboken King Bigelow Strawberry Festival In accordance with an established custom of the school, the Freshman class of 1940 trooped down to the band room at noon, May 28, to enjoy a bountiful straw- berry shortcalce served by Superintendent Meachum. This festival was first introduced in 1932 by Mr. Meachum. After the Freshmen,s desire for strawberries had been satisfied to the utmost, the coronation of King Bigelow and Queen Abolcen took place. Attired in the latest spring fashions, the king and queen paraded the main street of the village. They were escorted by the Royal Band and a host of loyal subjects. On their return to the Palace 1M.I-I.S.J, they discarded their royal robes, and the king and queen, having reigned for one hour, once again abdicated their throne for their regu- lar school schedule.

The stairway was gaily decorated with ferns, sweet smelling spruce with a background of blue and gold crepe paper, the Junior class colors. The beautifully decorated dance hall, combined with the sweet strains of the orchestra, furnished a perfect setting, as the boys and girls danced around the floor.

The fundamental purposes of the club are to teach its members how to develop and print pictures, to show the individuals what types of pictures are practical and which are impractical, and to provide a good activity for students to work on during their idle hours. Each member is required to submit satisfactory pictures illustrating different things such as: sports, activities, pictures of school building, and individual pic- tures which they may choose.

Football The football season ,of 1939 proved to be very successful for the Millington High School grid team. Before the season began, the belief was prominent that the Cardinals were in for a poor season because virtually the same eleven that had won only two games during the 1938 season would be reporting for duty. The boys, however, had different ideas as to the 1939 season. They under- took their task with a high spirit which, coupled with added experience, made a combination to be feared by any opposing team. Coach Glaza, adding his coaching genius to this combination, assembled a team that was fast, well-balanced, and powerful. The line, made up of seniors from tackle to tackle, was recognized as one of the best ever to represent the Cardinal and White. In eight games only one touchdown was scored through the forward wall. At center lurkecl large "Blondie,' Green, sided by guards, Charboneau and Staples. Duane Eno and "Tub" Gibson played the tackle positions while Hoard and Farnum were stationed at the ends. In the backfield the Cards had plenty of speed, power and deception. "Truck" Castle, fullback, supplied the necessary "punch" while Ed Drubin and LeRoy Clark, halfbacks, contributed the speed and deception. Sam Petoskey and Don Gilchrist alternated at quarterback, but right end, Farnum, did the signal calling. The Cardinal reserves were Bob DeLand, Charles Betz, Elton Leix, Hubert Leix, "Tarzan" Gilchrist, "Ox" Aboken, George Young, James Lange and L. Kovitz. The Results M.

Baseball April first witnessed the first official practice of the Millington Cardinal baseball team. Twenty-four candidates eagerly responded to Coach Glaza's call, and are competing for positions on the 1940 team. The present outlook points to a well balanced, powerful team with second and third base the only probable question marks. Seven regulars from the 1938 team, runner up champions of the county, have returned and are anxiously waiting the cry, "Play Ball!" The pitching staff is well fortified with four experienced hurlers, and Coach Glaza should find no trouble in selecting a capable trio to patrol the outfield. The season gets under way April 18, when Millington meets Marlette on the local field.

Mr. Meachum has a large but inexperienced group of runners working under his direction. William Dieter, LeRoy Clark ancl George Muntin are the most experienced .of the lot, and will undoubtedly be the nucleus of the 1940 squad. They will be the sprinters of the team. As hurcllers, two newcomers, Kovitz and Aboken, are the likely choices with Kovitz acting as the shot putter of the team. Ed Drulain will be the high jumper, while the distance runs will be taken care of by Davison, Wolfington, Coles, Beagle and Henderson. The relay team will consist of Dieter, Clark, Muntin and Kovitz.

Of course the first years of any sport are experimental, and Millington had to be satisfied with a "baclcseat." When the 1938 season came, Millington won the County Championship. Millington also repeated this in 1939, thereby capturing the County Championship for two successive years. Miss Nina Perry will coach the team this year, and Betty Koeltzow will act as manager of the team for her third year. There are only five archery teams in Tuscola County: Mayville, Akron, Millington, Reese, and Unionville. Milling- ton will have several dual meets with these teams during the spring season of 1940.

When we stop to realize that it takes on an average of twenty years for an idea to take root and approximately thirty years to bear fruit, it is amazing how gradually changes are made in our community pattern. In 1884 the front part of the present school building was erected at cost of ,Z2290.00. During the 1886-87 school year, provisions were made to have a four year high school course of study. John A. Chapell was principal at that time. In the secretary records there is the original teacher's contract of E. L. Mills. It was signed on August 19, 1889, whereby he was hired for the 1889-90 school year. Names signed to contract as ofiicials were: C. DeWitt fdirectorj, John A. Damon lmoderatorj, and D. N. Blocher lassessorj. In June 1890 E. L. Mills signed the first diplomas granted by Millington High School. Five girls constituted the graduating class- Minnie Bostick, Etta M. Tower, Grace Crobar, Clara Walterhouse, and Maude Winchester. On September 15, 1903, a petition was presented to the Board of Education to call a meeting for consideration for the construction of an addition to the building. On October 5, 1903, the special election was called and the proposal was defeated by a vote of 39 to 6. The Board of Education consisted of John Eggert, Jud Lane, A. Huston, E. H. Dimond, and George W. Rohrer. Then on January 21, 1908, a similar meeting was called by action of a petition of tax payers, and the proposal was again defeated. The overcrowded condition of the school became acute in 1910, and in April of that year the voters expressed themselves by a favorable vote of 60 to 21. In the records we find the original copy of the bid submitted by Ray Beach to construct an addition for the sum of 54,450.00 -dated June 10, 1910. The late Dr. W. C. Garvin was director of the Board of Education at that particular period. On June 6, 1930, there was a special election of the qualified voters to bond the school district for 530,000 to construct the second addition. The vote resulted in 95 no, and 42 yes. It was not until December, 1936, that the issue became a matter of interest to the voters. We had just awakened from our depression of fContim4ed on page 591 Page Fxfly Eight Millington School History Fifty Years fffantinucd from page 581 1933 but by the federal grant of 55,809.00 from P. W. A. funds, the voters expressed a favorable decision, bonding for .S3500.00. The vote was 142 yes, and 17 no. A smile came over the faces of the boys and girls of the community because up until then outside toilets were used and only James Whitcomb Riley with his words of eloquence could describe them. In June, 1937, Major Brendt of the Public Works Administration presented the building to the people of Millington at the dedicatory services. In the hall of the new structure we find a bronze plate with the following inscription-Board of Education: D. G. Salot, E. Richards, A. I-1. Cobb, W. F. Guenther, and Alfred C. Fischhaberg Superintendent of Schools: L. Meachumg Architects: Warren S. Holmes Co.g General Contractor: H. Howeg Inspector of Works: Marcus Titsworthg Sup- erintendent of Construction: Chris. Wick. During the 'fifty year period there have been 682 diplomas granted. In 1898-99 school year there were no diplomas granted, but classes have ranged in number from one in 1890-91 and 1893-94 school years to forty-three in 1939-40.
