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- ty. 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 trouble. 1 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. ...by Ruth Powell , cuss WILL We, the graduating class of Portage Township, Wood County and the State of Ohio, being of full age and of sound mind, body and memory, do make, publish and declare this writing to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all other wills by us heretofore made. Item 1. We direct that all of our just debts and expenses to be paid out of our estate as soon as is possible after the time of our graduation. Item 2.

BOYS' ATHLETICS 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 victory. . 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. We set a good Our next season we ent most valuable BOYS' ATHLETICS CONT'D team down 40-19, game was on Jen. 21, and for the first time of the red the contest weakened by the loss of one of our 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 12-16 count. 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 who accounted 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 several other 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. TOURNAMENT 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. Cygnet proved 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. BASKETBALL BOYS 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. BASKETBALL BOYS Bob Keys - Forward n Bob played a fast floor game. He was as clever at ball handling as anyone could ask for. He d1dn't work for high scoring honors but believed in Jim Taylor - Guard Jim played a cool game and was ponent tried for a goal. He surely Junior Mears - Guard and Center. Although Junior was not in all team play. always there when any op- could stop 'em. of the games, he always did a fine Job when called upon. He wil willing and ready tc do his bit at all times. Ealr Crawford - Forward Earl was small but mighty fast. He played a fine game the whole may through. He also scored more than 100 points. He will be fighting for Portage next year. Richard Surman - Guard. The highest scoring guard on the team. He was good on the long shots. He also worked return pass with great success Dale is only e Junior and this being his first year at Next year nJakeU should go places. Dale Thiebaut - Guard this well. Nest year he should be on the Luther Rose - Forward. Another prospect for the first school handicapped him. He can control shooting quite starting line-up. team next year lies in Luther. He is a good scrapper and can keep possession of the ball against almost any player. Clyde Sheperd - Forward Here is a speedy player who can really take part in ath- letics. Clyde is only a sophomore and was the highest scorer produced by this school. He can hit from any angle. Good luck at Portage next year, Clyde. Robert Atkins f Center and Guard ' Bob can play either place well, even though he is only a sophomore. He is very aggressive and can control his shooting Nest year he will make it plenty tough for his opponents. The second team has not had such a large number of wins 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 the season. Some promising players for the next year which were not previously listed are: Stanley Brand, Boyd Crawford, William Eidson, Jack Gonyer Don Keys, Clarence Lemmerbrock, J. D. Mears, John Reynolds, and Robert Tefft. 1937 BASKETBALL less DATE WHO WHERE WE THEY Nov. 25 Milton Home 41 24 U 50 Bredner Home 27 20 Dec. 3 Henry Twp.

Vic is a good catcher and a reliable hitter. Vie was chosen captain by his teammates. Jim Taylor is also a Senior and was one of the mainsookes of the team. He was noted for his hitting and pitching ability. Earl Crawford was the second pitcher and started four of the games. He was also a faithful hitter and will boost the team along next year. James Mears is a Senior and was one of the three pitchers to help win six games out of nine. He was present and had true spirit at all the games. Bob Atkins played first base and was a reliable man. He get his first home run at Cygnet. He will help the team along next year. - Al Tyson was short, fast, and played second base., He was a very good batter and will help the team next year. Clyde Sheperd played short stop and did fine work. He will be there next year if any of them will. Luther Hose was a reliable third baseman and played the game well. He also will help the team hit its stride next year. Clarence Lemmerbreck played right f1eld.' He got around swiftly, and will be there next year. Jack Gonyer played field and was there every game. He will have a regular berth on the team next year. ' Richard Surman is a Junior, and will help the team next year Without his support in the field and at bat we no doubt would hot have won six games out of nine. ' Boyd Crawford is a freshman. He showed ue well for his first year, and will help the team along very much next year. Don Keys is a promising young catcher, and plays very well. With a little experience he can fill V1c's place at catching next year. Good Luck. X iw 'Q -. QS - r"ff!': I 4? .

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 season. 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 15 points. 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 large margin. 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. BASKETBALL GIRLS 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 any team. 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 guard end. 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. BASKETBALL GIRLS 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 the ball. 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 and skill. 1937 BASKETBALL SCHEDULE 1938 DATE WHO WHERE HEY Nov Pemberville Home 20 0 , Pemberville Away 11 0 Bradner Home 10 Dec Henry Twp.

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. BASEBALL CONT'D 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 In the return game with with Henry Twp.

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 school teams, 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 Marjorie Hagemeyer. 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 BASEBALL 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. ATHLETIC BANQUET 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, and Cooperation. 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.

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 appetites everyone did Justice to the cider and roasted weiners and marshmallows.

MOTION PICTURES 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. ....The Reflector Staff PORTAGE TWP.

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. ......Luther Rose, Jr. A Fmmns' 'INSTITUTE I The Portage Twp.

Shaffer, Vice President, Mr. Stickel, Secretary and Treasurer, Merlin Oates and Hostess, Mrs. Bradshaw. 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 was. 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. ....Lo1s,Abke 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 were scheduled. 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. KW we-.X ,. if .-F 'x :u,, ,Ji 1, X e:""2 fi ,,.. xx .f, . Q H SNAPSJHQQTS 335 6 3. lg wa- YP .

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 only boy in school to play hookey?u Luther shrugged, WL1ve and let live is my motto,n he replied.
