SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Since our arrival at Portage Twp. High School, we have
been working toward a definite goal--that of graduation. Now
as we come nearer that goal we can look back and see the smal-
ler tasks as only stepolng stones toward a greater purpose. ,
A few lines will bring back to memory our school life.
After spending two years at the one-room school, we were cent-
ralized into a consolidated school system, where we entered as
third graders. From the one room school, we still have remain-
ing with us: Robert Keys from the Hall School, Kenneth Dauter-
man and James Mears, Jr., from the Portage Center School, and
Lois Abke and Emerson Van Vorhis from the Shoupe School.
As we proceeded through these several grades the class
gained new members. In the eighth grade Frieda Koepp from De-
troit, Michigan, and James Taylor from Portage Village were our
new members. At the end of this term of school, receiving our
eighth grade diploma, we entered high school.
During the Freshman and Sophomore years we gained two more
classmates. These were Ruth Powell from Mt. Blanchard High
School and Victor Singleton from Cygnet. This made our class
total nine. o
The next great stepping stone was the transition to the
Junior Class. With this advancement, new duties came to us,
and we found ourselves in truth the ruling class of school.
In social life we contributed several things everyone enjoyed.
Now we are Seniors: Our store-house of facts has now been
increased: our mode of thinking, habits of study and conduct
have changed, and we at least have a broader conception and a
deeper appreciation of the value of education. Now as we Sen-
iors are departing we shall leave behind us underclassmen who
will continue to carry on the work which we set forth to do to
make Portage High School the best school, and with us we will
take the wealth of knowledge we have gained and the dear and
priceless memories of our school days.
. ...... Emerson Van Vorhis
THE CLASS POEN
We hate to think that our school days have passed:
That we have only begun to accomplish our tasks.
We'll face all the problems one by one:
And show to the world that it can be done.
We have tried to do our best while at work:
We were willing to do it and never to shirk.
We played the game square and put forth a fight:
And alwsys tried to do the things that were right.
We hate to leave this deer school behind:
And leave those friends who were true and kind.
But we'll go out in the world and seek friends anew
And prove to them all just what we can do.
We want you, dear school, to beer in mindg
That you are the best than anyone can find.
There are many more things that we could sny or do:
But we'll bid one and all a fond sdlcu.
....by Ruth Powell
SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY .
Let us look into the future and see what it provides for
the Senior Class of 1938
Immediately we see Emerson Van Vorhis working on a large
farm near Bowling Green, Ohio. It is a beautiful place. He
raises many fine horses which have won him recognition all
over the world.
We then come to the home of Victor Singleton in Iowa. He
sits in his easy chair until the time comes for him to husk
corn. He is the world's corn husking champion and don't for-
get he got the experience in the tall corn grown in Wood Coun-
We turn to the city of Findlay, Ohio, and see Lois Abke
working in an office as stenographer for a large firm. Lois
has succeeded in becoming a great typist and ranks high thro-
ughout the state of Ohio.
As we near the city of Chicago, we visualize Kenneth
Dauterman, sitting in the office once occupied by Clarence
Darrow, greatest criminal lawyer. Kenneth has never lost a
case and never expects to. We knew Kenneth would become fam-
ous because of his thinking ability. He will help you out of
The scene again shifts to the City of New York. We find
Junior Mears as head nChef Cookn at UHotel New Yorkern one of
the world's largest hostelries. His cooking satisfies every-
one. We know now why he took Home Economics. That's the way
to dish 'em out, Junior.
Traveling through the State of Montana, we see James Tay-
lor on a large ranch. He is the best caballero around and has
a contract to go to Hollywood and work for Warner Bros. Ride
'cm Cowboy! Ride 'em.
We now go to the State of California and find Robert Keys
as professor at Stanford University. He is known as the worlds
most intelligent person. He is a busy man, and we should'nt
be surprised to find that someday he will run for presidentu
The scene shifts to Detroit, Michigan. There we find the
world's finest pianist. Who is it? It is Frieda Koeoo, of
course. She is a teacher of music and has a large class of
about three hundred. Her ambition has been fulfilled.
We stop to visit one of Chicsgo's greatest radio stations.
In the studio we see a lovely talented girl about to sing on
station W.G.N. It is Ruth Powell, a most diligent worker in
her activities. Frieda Koepo, as guest artist is accompany-
ing her on the piano.
The pictures fade and the Journey is ended.

Twenty enthusiastic boys answered the call for basketball
material: four seniors, five juniors, five sophomores, and six
freshmen. All were short of experience but developed rapidly
under three tough practice sessions a week.
By the time the opener rolled around only one man dropeed
out. The remaining nineteen had the real spirit and stuck all
through the entire season to pile up one of the greatest rec-
ords of any Wood County team.
We won thirteen games, lost four, and those lost by a to-
tal of only nine points. 'We scored five hundred fifty-four
points to our opponents four hundred twenty-two. We also out-
distanced our opponents in foul-shooting, hanging up 44.81 to
out opponents ' 54.
Nov. 23 the first game was with Milton on our court. M11-
ton looked good the first quarter and led 7-8, but the boys
found themselves and really clicked for the remaining three
quarters. 'Dauterman collected fourteen noints to be the star
of the game.
Nov. 50 we met a strong aggregation from Bradner that
kept the D.T.S. boys in trouble all the way. When the game
ended we were on the long end of 27-20 score.
The next game was December 3 with Portage acting as host
to Henry Two. Henry had a nice little outfit but they were not
good enough for the fast moving Portage quintet and went down
to defeat 58-15. 1
Our next game was Dec. 10 at Webster in their new gym-
nasium. Webster eroved to be one of the strongest teams in the
county and gave us some trouble in spite of the fact that we
led all the way after 12-12 count at the half. Our guards,
Taylor and Surman held Webster's big scoring combination, Tay-
man and Roper to only eight ooints. Again the boys proved
themselves to be in a strong aggregation by turning a 24-19
When Liberty came here Dec. 17 they looked to be a sure
winner after they had us 8-O the first quarter, but as usual
we had a strong third quarter of scoring and a revised defense
in Atkins checking Newlove. We were haspy to take a 30-24
victory over an old rival.
On,Jan 4 we were guests of Rislngsun in their new gymnas-
ium. Our outfit played their usual snaopy fast game, but
could not hit the basket. Surman turned in a nice game at
guard and seven points to lead his team in scoring. The game
ended 22-16 in our favor.
By this time it looked as though it was just a Portage
habit to win, but we were afraid of the strong Cygnct outfit
that came here Jan. 7. In spite of the many fouls that were
called the game was fast and well olayed. We scored 34 points
to our opponents' 28, to please our strong following in the
headllner of the season.
Jan. 11 we went to Henry to play a criooled team. All the
boys had a hand in a 35-15 victory. The scoring was quite well
distributed among our ten players. .
We were feeling pretty good by this time, winning eight
straight. On Jan 18 we played host to Hoytville team. After
a slow first half we opened uv in a dizzy passing attack that
didn't end until the ball was in the basket. This was one of
our best played games.

players, NDautermann, and the illness of UCrawfordU.
This seemed to demoralize the boys and we could not get going,
and Luckey broke our winning streak of nine games in a row by a
Jan. 28 found us determined to get back in the winning col-
umn and we took the measure of a scraooing Bradner outfit 31-26.
Feb. 1 we wont to Hoytville feeling confident of a victory
since we had no trouble earlier in the season with them. In
spite of the good scoring of Sheperd, Dautermen and Crawford, we
took a disheartening defeat 33-34.
Feb. 4 we met Webster and took another discouraging defeat
33-35. Our guards end just could not check those two forwards
for twenty-seven points.
Feb. 8 we journeyed to Milton to hang ue a decisive 44-37
victory. In this game Sheperd was more brilliant in scoring,
and hung up seventeen ooints to lend the tesm. Bob Keys played
his usual brilliant floor game and broke his bed habit of not
shooting for once, and helped out his team with three goals.
Feb. ll we were all cocked and primed to meet Luckey here,
thus to avenge an early seeson defeat and meke it possible to say
that we defefted at least once, every team on our schedule. In
the lest few seconds of one of the hardest-fought games we man-
aged to forge
ahead to win 27-26 from one of the best-coached
teams we had met this year.
Feb. 15 we wound up our season by playing Liberty in their
gym. It was
one of the fastest, best-played, games on our record
We ran up 38 points in the first half to their 17. The game
ended 52-34 to top our scoring record of any one game. Crawford
hung uo eleven points. Thiebaut, Mears, and Rose. again as in
games showed that they knew the technique of good
basketball and kept our team on too when many regulars were out.
This was our thirteenth victory.
Feb. 18 we went to the Wood Co. tournament to meet a strong
Cygnet outfit. We started out and played brilliant ball lead-
ing 22-15 at the half. We came back the second half and could
not adjust ourselves to Cygnet's long shooting, and it wasn't
'leng until Cygnet took the lead, but in the last minute we mis-
sed several chances to tie the score, and the game ended 31-33.
that they had a good team by going on, defeating
Webster, Luckey, and Bredner. They were defeated only by North
Baltimore in the Wood County Tournament.
Kenneth Dauterman, Caotain
Ken played his last and best basketball this year to earn
the honor of leading his team. Always scraooing herd and playing
smooth ball, he was one of the three men to score over 100 points.
Bob Keys - Forward n

this year, but that is not the purpose of our reserves. The
main purpose is to give everybody an opportunity to gain ex-
perience and also to enjoy playing on the team. In every game,
even if it meant defeat, we used all the players out for the
team, and I might add that we had a
large portion of the high
school trying for a position. There were nineteen to finish

T GIRLS' ATHLETICS
The first week in November fourteen high school girls be--
gan practicing basketball so that they might set up a record
during the season better than ever before. They began playing
rough, tiring easily, having little skill: but through work,
patience, and untiring effort they were in good cond1t1on,ready
for the opening game on November 23.
Since the Hoytville game was canceled because of an epi-
demic, the Portage Twp., girls played their first game with Pem
berville. By winning this game, and another, two days later,
from Pembervllle, the girls built up confidence for the whole
The inexperienced Bradner team had no chance to get or-
ganized against our fast-moving squad on the floor.
Our girls met greater competition when they played the
fast-stepping Henry Twp. team.
The Webster lassies seemed completely swept off their
feet, having secured no points at the end of the first quarter,
while the PuT.S. girls put the ball through the loop five
times. However during the rest of the game both teams scored
Fourteen Portage girls played in the Liberty game. The
Liberty team had no luck in shooting and played a losing game
all the way through.
The P.T.S. team found that their Risingsun opponents,
whom they had not played in previous years showed great skill
in securing 20 points while Portage sextet scored 29.
One of the most entertaining games of the season, the first
downfall of the P.T.S. girls was played before a capacity
crowd. The game was tied at the end of the first quarter, Por-
tage led by l point at the half, by 5 points at the end of the
third quarter, but Cygnet put forth special effort in the last
quarter, and took the game by 5 points. Ruth Powell starred by
scoring a total of 15 points in this game.
The girls, not losing their good spirit, set up a second
victory against Henry Twp. After holding them 9 to O at the
end of the first quarter, each team totaled 9 points in the re-
maining part of the game.
When Portage entertained Hoytville, the home team was up
to par and played a winning game from start to finish.
On Jan 2lst the girls journeyed to Luckey with a winning
spirit and brought back a victory with a 15 point lead. The
girls had no difficulty in advancing their score. Delorls
Bockbrader was hitting well, making a total of 14 points.
When they went to Bradner they found that their opponents
had improved greatly. Coral McEwen totaled 16 points, which
was the highest number of points any Portage girl scored in
any game in this season.
Next Portage Twp. met Hoytville in a return game. The
girls were held to a l point loss at the end of the first
quarter, and remained behind during the rest of the game, losing
by one basket.
The P. T. S. girls won the return game from Webster by a
GONT'D GIRLS' ATHLETICS
In the Milton game the Portage girls led only by one
point at the end of the first quarter, but played a good game,
keeping the opponents from scoring in the second and third
quarters. They took the game by 7 points.
Portage almost doubled the score on the Luckey lassies in
the return game played at Portage.
The girls traveled to Liberty determined to win this game
to close the season. The game was close all the way through
but the girls fought hard to win.
Finishing the season, losing but two games and winning
fifteen the squad feels it has accomplished a coveted goal,
which was attained only through the cooperation of the entire
squad. The team was well balanced-a strong guard combination
and a fast forward set up. The players who were awarded let-
ters were: Ruth, Powell, Ruth Abke, Alvenia Patten, Coral
McEwen, Deloris Bockbrader, Kathryn Decker, Virginia Bursiek,
and Doris Snyder.
Ruth Powell - Honorary Captian
She showed a eenstant effort to improve her technique.
Always aggressive, she scored more than one hundred points
during the season. She has won three letters and will be mis-
sed on the squad next year.
Ruth Abke - Guard ,
Because of her steadying influence, Ruth has kept the
guards on their toes in every game. Quick to grasp the sit-
uation and to work it out, she makes an outstanding guard on
Alvenia Patten - Guard
Cheerful, determined and cooperative, Alvenia made a,
good combination with the other guards on the team. She al-
ways played for the fun of playing as well as for victory.
Coral McEwen - Forward
We are grateful for Coral's presence on the team. A
move consistently fast, steady, alert, aggressive and boyish
player hasn't played here for several years. She scored the
most points during the season.
Deloris Bockbrader - Forward ,
Another forward who scored over one hundred points and
who had a good team spirit, also a feeling of sureness. She
has played her third season for Portage Twp.
Kathryn Decker - Guard
She supplied plenty of pep and determination to get the
ball to the forwards. She completed the almost invincible
Doris Snyder - Forward
Fast, sure, and small, Doris slipped past her guards with
little difficulty. She is only a Sophomore and was the only
one to be awarded a letter.
Barbara Poss - Forward q
During the season Barbara developed remarkably in her
swgft passes and her accurate shots. With more practice ln
actual games she will excel.
Irene Tyson - Guard
Irene, another Sophomore showed a great improvement in
the understanding of the game and the technique of handling
Lois Abke - Guard
Lois is worthy of high recommendation because of her
faithfulness in practice even though she did not play often in
the interscholastic games. Good team spirit. She seemed to
enjoy her practices. ,
Frances Long - Guard
Frances, a freshman proved that she has the making of a
good guard because she has the fighting spirit.
Irene Smith - Guard ,
Irene, also a Freshman was out for the fun of practice
and helped the team through her faithful service as a guard.
Betty Tefft - Forward
Eager to get into a game and trying her hand at both
forward and guard, Betty also, developed in her technique

In the fall of 1957 the P.T.S. indoor baseball squad en-
thusiastically set out to practice hard to prepare for the
four games scheduled. They tried to overcome the habit of
making errors. ,
On Sept. 21, 1937, the Portage Twp. ten entertained the
Henry Twp. team for the opening game of the season. ,The con-
test was close all the way through. The visitors, unfortun-
ately for us--scored one more run than the home team.
A few days later the team traveled to Cygnet for a deci-
sive victory. In the first inning the hard hitting Portage
players crossed home plate thirteen times. That score was
raised to forty-seven in the long drawn game.
On Oct. 6 the Portage delegation motored to Webster. The
game played on an emprovised diamond, ended with the score 22-
12 in Webster's favor., Q

SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE SPORTS
The Portage Twp. seventh and eighth grades show much en-
thusiasm when it comes to sports. It is well that they have
the enjoyment of and the practice in actual interscholastic
competition before they are expected to become members of high
The girls played only two games, both with Cygnet. The
first time P.T.S. girls went over there, they swept the Cygnet,
girls off their feet and ran up a score of 36-16. The second
time they found greater competition and lost by 2 points 17-15.
The girls developed great skill in handling the ball, both in
passing and shooting. Those representing our school are Betty
Mears, Phyllis Dauterman, Violet Gunder, Velma Crawford, Lois
Singleton, Virginia Fullmer, Dorothy Hummel, Betty Culp, and
The boys under the capable direction of their coach, Mr.
Ryder, in playing five games of basketball with interscholastic
teams also developed a great deal of team spirit and skill.
Their first contest was with their neighbors. the Portage Vil-
lage laddies on the small floor at Portage. Somewhat humbled
they reported a score of 22-2 in favor of their opponents.
When the Villagers returned the game on our floor a few days
later the P.T.S. team managed to score four points against the
fourteen of their opponents. Next they traveled to Cygnet.
In spite of their great efforts, they were able to score only
9 points, while their opponents made 17. Steadily improving,
and having gained more confidence by the enrollment of a good
player from Portage Village, the Portage boys welcomed Cygnet
for a return game, and scored 22 points to their ll. As a
Joyful climax to the season the boys played their final game
at Pemberville and returned smiling, reporting a victory. The
score was 25-27
Our boys played Liberty here in a very exciting game.
Liberty was ahead until the last half of the last ending. We
had 5 men on base and 2 outs. If Harold Harmon missed we
would have run him off the lot, but he got a single which
scored 2 men and gave us a victory lf 5-6. A week later we '
went to Liberty and they got revenge by defeating us 6-l.
The Athletic Banquet was held March 4, 1938 in honor
of the Athletes of P.T.S. It was a very elaborate affair.
The color scheme was carried out in green and white. The
programs were in purple and gold, the school colors.
The sumptuous meal was enjoyed by all the parents as
well as the athletes. After the meal the toastmaster, Mr.
Collins gave the key words for the even1ng's entertainment.
They were Mother, Love, Service, Special Ability, Father,
Under Mother, the athletes were given a cordial wel-
come to the lovely banquet by Mrs. Abke. The honorary cap-
tains, Ruth Powell and Kenneth Dauterman gave well-prepared
responses. Following this, Betty Mears, a young violin-
ist, rendered a solo much enjoyed by all. Ruth Powell
and Alvenia Patten honored the fathers in a duet, WS1lver-
haired Daddy of M1ne.U Immediately after, two picture shows
on sports were given, very appropriate for the occasion.
Coach Ockerman, of B.GgS.U. gave an interesting talk
on nGood Sportsmanshipu, centering his speech around the
participants, the coaches, spectators, and officials.
Next, under cooperation, Mr. Knight presented letter
awards to the two faithful cheerleaders, Lenora Benschoter
and Virginia Clark: also to Lester Fullmer for two years of
successful managing. I
Miss Oestreich and Mr. Ryder presented letter awards
to Ruth Powell, Deloris Bockbrader, Coral McEwen, Ruth Abke,
Virginia Burseik, Kathryn Decker, Doris Snyder, and Alvenia
Patten of the girls' team. For the boys' team they were
Earl Crawford, Clyde Sheperd, Robert Atkins, Richard Sur-

On the night of Sept. 29, 1937, a group of fearful Fresh-
men made their way to the Portage Twp. Schoolhouse, where they
were to be initiated.. For the past week the Sophomore boys had
been constructing wicked looking paddles which they hoped to
use in the initiation. At last the entire Freshman class was '
assembled and marched before the students of the upper classes,
and each one was sent through the many steps of the initiation,
much to the delight of the audience. One of the most exciting
parts of the program was the skill which the Freshmen showed
in pushing peanuts across the floor with their noses. The
paddles, however, were not used. and the Freshmen showed no
signs of rebellion against their Sophomore dictators.
Then after the Freshmen had been thoroughly humbled, every-
one went outside to Join in playing several games. With whetted

During the first semester of our present school year, the
Board of Education purchased a new motion picture machine for
both sound and silent films. Since that time the various
classes and people of the community have enjoyed several Edu-
cational and recreational shows as well as the feature pic-
tures, nPeck's Bad Boyu, Wvillion Dollar Babyn, and WThe Hoosier
School Masteru. These educational films are furnished, free
of charge, by the state department of Education, while the
feature pictures must be rented from private organizations. It
is the desire of the nReflcctorN staff that the faculty continue
to bring educational films into our school and community.

PORTAGE TWP. PEST HUNT
On the night of January 7, 1938, during the intermission
of than notable Cygnet Basketball game, the representatives
from each side met to organize a pest hunt for 1938. Officers

Leader of South side ............ Luther Rose
Committee ....... ...... John Reynolds, Delton

The pests and their values were:
Sparrows and mice .... ...l0 points
Starlings .......... ...20 points
Crows, ............ ..... 50 points
Rats ..... .... 100 points
Hawks. ...... ............. ........ 250 points
The hunt was a nip and tuck battle and due to a slight
misunderstanding the last count was not made: however, before
the last count the north side led by about 6000 points.
Then on March ll, l938 everyone who had any connection
with the pest hunt met at the Portage Twp. School for an enjoy-
able evening. After about 300 had been served hot dogs Cquite
a fewy doughnuts and coffee, everyone went upstairs to the
auditorium where they were fully entertained by a program put
on by both sides. The leaders and play coaches were Mrs. Earl
Rose and Mrs. Paul Snyder. All enjoyed themselves and are even
now looking forward to another program next year.

SCHOOL FAIR ,
Late fall was the date of our School Fair. Every Student
and every teacher worked hard to help make it the success it
Each room in the building featured an interesting game or
contest where those who wished might try their skill, and if
successful gain a prize. For instance, the first grade room
contained a top spinning game. The second and third grade room
had a golf game and sold candy and crackerjack. The Fourth
and Fifth grade pitched pennies in exchange for balloons. The
assembly hall contained a fish pond, where many nice gifts were
received. The Bingo game, the puppet show and circus were well
oatronized. The high school also sponsored a Talkie Moving
Picture, which was worth the admission fee. These were enjoyed
by large crowds.
Two plays were given by the high school: 'His First Girln
and nS1gn on the Dotted Line.u
There were exhibits of farm products, electric train and
electric fence. Indian relics and antiques were also shown.
We heard comments from older people saying it reminded '
them very much of the county fair that everyone used to attend.
Numbers were given to everybody buying tickets and if you
were lucky you drew a valuable prize which was donated by the
merchants from surrounding towns.
All the money made from these games and plays was used
for the good of the school.
MUSIC ACTIVITIES ,
Music at Portage Township enjoyed a busy round of activi-
ties during the lQ57-38 school term.
Classes in piano and violin were organized at the begin-
ning of the year and regular periods for orchestra rehearsal
Music for chapel exercises was furnished by the orchestra,
glee clubs, and special groups. These organizations also par-
ticipated in the Christmas program, Farmers' Institute, Pest
Hunt Supper, class plays and other community programs.
On Marth eighth thv boys' and girls' glee club and members
of the Junior high chorus presented the operetta, Nwindmills of
Hollandn Colorful costumes and scenery added to the attractive
ness of the presentation.
At the present writing preparations are being made for the
Annual County Music Festival to be held April twenty-first at
Bowling Green, and also the grade school operetta NThe Magic
Woodn to be given April twenty-seventh.
Several seniors will be missed from the above organization
next year. Frieda Koepp has accompanied the girls' glee club
and served as pianist for chapel exercises. Ruth Powell and
Lois Abke, beth of whom held leading parts in the high school
operetta, will leave empty spaces which will be hard to fill.
Nevertheless we are looking forward next year to increase the
musicianship for Portage Township.

letics. He came here and

Cleveland Prin: Nwhy is
Richard always eligble.N
Mr. Collins! He is a good
player so we gave him a
Cleveland Print And may I
ask what was the test?
Mr. Collins: We asked him
what color blue vitriol was
and he said red. That was
wrong so we asked if he
knew how to make copper sul-
fate and he sald no. That
was right, so we passed him
on 502 correct.
The truant officer grabbed
Luther's ear: WWhyUhe asked
severely, Umust you be the

Richard: Yes, Why?
Mr. Knight: Well, next time

it was the whistle for lunch
Judge: Why did you knock out
four of this man's teeth?
Dale: That was all he had.
