No f'Lazy-bones" Here
These teachers busy with school work'every
minute of the day still tind time to sponsor clubs
and take an active part in professional organiza-
tions, such as the Grand Rapids Teachers' Club,
of which Mr. Giddings is president. When there
are drives to sell more defense stamps, donate
books for the USO, or contribute to the Red Cross,
it is the teachers who help. And one rarely sees
Miss Caldwell without her Red Cross knitting.
Nevertheless, the teachers are seen at plays and
games, cheering and as "full 0' pep" as any student.
I. Thrills. Miss Baloyan is keeping up the
Ottawa school spirit.
2. Anticipation. After years of coaching, Lud
still watches each game with interest.
3. Leisure hours. Miss Krzyminski takes time
out to help with the hobby show.
4. Mid-year exams. They're over for the stu-
dents. but not for Mr. Vander Ploeg.
5. Bidding farewell to a senior.

time and effort in building an intelli-
gent generation for the future with a
knowledge of the past, in stimulating
the ambitions of the students, and in
instilling in the minds and hearts of
their pupils a love for democratic ideals
-good sportsmanship, equality, and
To the teachers of Ottawa Hills, the
students owe appreciation for all that
has been done for them. The time,
effort, and knowledge that the instruc-
tors have given so freely to aid them -
not only in academic work, but in other
activities as well- is but a symbol of
the teachers' devotion to the ideals of
America and to mankind, whom they
are serving by building the citizens of
They serve best-who serve mankind.
