Foreword . . .
This volume of the Iuka is a summary and a record of one year of high
school life. It has been the aim of the staff to portray it accurately. It is my
hope that this book will become even more than a collection of pictures and a
record of events. May it be a storehouse of memories representing friendships
and achievements. In days to come when you turn the following pages, may
you enjoy their reminder of good times and friends at Tama High.
' E. H. Nelson
The Iuka staff started to work early in the year with the purpose of making
a book which would be superior in every way.
Since pictures hold more lasting memories than words, the staff started a
photography contest, offering a prize for the best snap turned in to them. Due
to the success of the venture and to the always-active camera of the photo-
graphic editor, the book has an unusual amount of pictures, both formal and
Several new features have been added: the new divisions sheets with
their snaps add zest and originality to the book: the faculty "in action" seem
more familiar than the formal posed pictures.
The entire staff and its capable and helpful sponsors-Mr. Sellars, Miss
Trevett, and Mr. Nelson-present this volume with a sense of great pride in
work well done, and with confidence that it will hold many happy memories
for each member of Tama High School.

F our grand and glorious high school years have just passed away, and
the seniors face the world ready for new experiences. In any walk of life, they
will never forget those high school days with their up and their downs.
The senior class officers were Warren Robeson, president: Harley Mikkel-
son, vice president: Russell Benda, secretary, and Helen Crane, treasurer.
Members of the senior class have participated in every field of extra-cur-
ricular activities. Some of the most notable high school athletes in the history
of Tama High School are seniors this year. They received recognition in base-
ball, football, and basketball. The class was represented in the band also.
Adrian Neil achieved honors for his band directing by winning first place in the
music contest at Vinton, and in the State contest at Oskaloosa. The Girls' and
Boys' Glee Clubs and the Mixed Chorus have seniors for some of their mem-
Seniors have also shown an interest in the dramatic department. The
comedy-drama, Almost Eighteen. was presented May 16, under the direction of
Miss Bond. Ethel Willer won first place in the home declamatory contest and
placed second in the Preliminary contest at Garwin. Three members of the
play, Bargains in Cathay, which was presented at the Iowa Play Festival, were
Tama High School has given some real lessons and experiences that will
aid them in the future. If the coming years hold as many pleasant and bene-
ficial experiences as the last four, the seniors will ask nothing more.

Coming through the mazes of the underclasses, this year's junior class proudly boasts
an outstanding group of scholars, athletes, and musicians.
In the athletics division are Robert Burns, William Pratt, Wayne Hobson, and many
others. On all the teams there is at least one junior, and often more.
In boy's and girl's glee club, sextet, and mixed chorus, the junior class is well repre-
sented. The mezzo-soprano soloist was Pearl Burton, a junior.
The main concern of the class was the raising of money for the big social event of the
year, the Iunior-Senior Prom. The class sold candy and popcorn at football and basket-
ball games, took in money from the junior class play, and sold refreshments at the high
school dances. The Prom was based on a Navy theme.
Dorothy Overturf starred in the Iunior class play, "Early To Bed, Early To Rise."
The class looks back across a happy, prosperous year and awaits the forthcoming
one, knowing, that though they can never take the present seniors' place in the heart of
Tama High School, they will try to live up to the high standards placed before them.
As the class of 1943 reaches the half-way mark in its educational voyage through
Tama High School, it looks eagerly ahead to the remaining two years, trusting that they
will provide a fitting climax to many years devoted to the building of character, a schol-
arship, and service.
The sophomore class sponsored a picnic at the beginning of the school year for the
freshman class, as well as a sophomore class party later in the year.
The class of forty-three is unusually outstanding in the representation which it holds
in athletics, dramatics, and music. Iohn Thill, Bill Corns, Duane Cory, and Frank Har-
don have won recognition in athletics. Bill Platt has well represented his class in
declamatory work, going tothe pre-district contest before being defeated. Many mem-
bers of the class have been members of the musical organizations open to them.
The sophomore class sincerely hopes to make achievements which will be worthy
of four great years in THS, achievements which will be worthy of the largest class ever
to enter Tama High School.
In Memory of
MELVIN E. HARTZ
March, 1924 - May 3, 1941
We, the freshman class of 1940-41, have enjoyed the past nine months of our fresh-
man year very much. We feel it an honor and a privilege to be able to enter such a
Throughout the school year We have thoroughly enjoyed the fine entertainment pro-
tgidlpd lby the athletes, the musicians, and the dramatic department of Tama High
Many freshmen have participated in the various activities provided by the school.
We are proud of them and of their work in these various organizations, and wish to ex-
press our appreciation to the school for providing them.
When we leave our freshman year behind, there will be many happy memories still
lingering in our mind. We have enjoyed the first nine months in Tama High School
very much and hope that the freshman class next year will have as fine a time during
their year with the teachers and upper classmen as we have had.

Senior Class Play
Almost Eighteen, the senior class play, plucked the heartstrings of the members of
the audience as the cast brought to life the joys and the pathos of the Barry family.
Eddie, a boy of seventeen, was "marked for tragedy" because someone had signed
Ed's name and address to an essay by Mathew Hall that Eddie was using for style and
entered it in a contest. When it was revealed that Eddie's essay was a first place win-
ner, the trouble began. The judging committee finally discovered that the paper was
not Eddie's original, and a reform school term was threatened. The whole Barry family
moaned and wailed over the misfortune, except Ann, Eddie's best girl friend, who stood
The judges agreed to award the prize to the second place winner, which happened
to be Eddie's original. As every good story or play ends, ,"they lived happily ever
Miss Alberta Bond, the director, and the cast should be complimented upon the
success of the play.

On Friday, November fifteenth, a cast
of nine talented local young people
successfully produced Skidding, CI play
based on an amusing incident in the
life of the famous Hardy family of the
movies. The parts of Mr. and Mrs.
lames Hardy were capably filled by
Mr. Victor Lipka and Miss Evelyn
Houdyshell, while the role of "Andy"
was done in a hilarious manner by
Charles Turbett. To add that touch of
romance, there were Miss Alberta Bond
and Mr. Iohn Neil in the roles of Marion
and her fiance. The two daughters
who have come home to mother were
Miss Eileen McNamar and Miss Velma
Davidson: the part of the good-natured
spinster, Aunt Milly, was capably han-
dled by Mrs. Victor Lipka. The play
also had a white-haired grandfather: this unique role was taken by Mr. Charles Harmon. David Hynek
played the part of the smooth-tongued politician.
The play was a real success and succeeded in its purpose of raising money to help pay for the
band uniforms. The action was under the skillful direction of Miss Bond, who, at the last moment,
had to step in and take Miss Hylton's place when she Was suddenly taken ill and could not appear.
The band opened the program, Qnd between qcts the audience was entertained by the trumpet trio,
the sextet, and a Xylophone solo.

Approximately fourteen students made real efforts to learn declamatory
readings this year: of these, nine contestants were chosen to compete in the
home declamatory on November 26. Bill Platt received a first place rating in
the oratorical division, and Ethel Willer and Dorothy Overturf received firsts in
the dramatic and humorous divisions respectively. These students journeyed
to the State Preliminary Contest at Garwin on December 5. Bill and Dorothy
"brought home the bacon" with first places, and Ethel received a second. The
next declamatory experience for Bill and Dorothy was the Sub-District contest
at Keystone, December 19. Again Bill was victorious, while Dorothy won a
second. However, Dorothy received the highest rating of any contestant in that

National l-lonor Society
The National Honor Society is the highest honor to be gained
by a high school student. Membership to the society is not
based entirely on the grades received by the students who are
selected, but emphasis is placed on character, service, and
leadership as well. Students may be able to make good
grades, but if they are unable to cooperate and unwilling to
serve in a gracious way, the grades they earn are of little
worth to them. Many students fulfill these requirements in
part, but only a limited number meet all of them.
This organization was first established in Tama in 1923, and
since then has become the main goal of each student entering
The sextette is composed of six girls, two representatives from each of the
three upper classes. Five of the girls are members this year for the first time.
The group has worked hard and was rewarded by winning a superior rating
at the district contest at Vinton, Iowa.
The members are: Edith Mason, Pearl Burton, Dorothy Morgan, Inez
Zhorne, Iune Stigers, and Carol Shearer.
Boysl Grlee Club
This year's Boys' Glee Club has probably been one of the smallest in the
history of the Tama High. It has also been one of the best. Although only 16
fellows went to contest, the glee club received a rating of excellent. It has
made great strides in tone, blend, balance, and intonation in the last year.
The boys' most popular performance was, without a doubt, the barber
shop scene which it presented at the "Musical Moments" program this year.
The group has appeared at many school functions and several times at the
King Tower Cafe where they were invited to sing for various organizations.
This year's glee club has really demonstrated that boys can sing and that
they enjoy it.

are held every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from eight o'c1ock to nine-
The band entered its first competition at Eldora last fall and was awarded
a rating of excellent. They gave color and zest to every football game in the
fall by their marching exhibitions during the half.
This is Mr. Cross's second year in Tama. During these two years he has
made remarkable progress with the band. In the last two years the member-
ship has grown from twelve to fifty members. There are also fifteen beginners
who are not members of the regular band. At the district contest in Vinton Mr.
Cross's contestants won two excellents and one superior. At the state contest
his entree was awarded a superior. It was largely through the efforts of Mr.
Cross that the new band uniforms were purchased this year.
Miss Bryant was graduated from Mount Vernon with a Bachelor of Arts
degree in 1939. She came to Tama last year from Wilton Iunction. Since she
has been here, she has been very successful with the Girls' Glee Club, Sextet,
and Mixed Chorus. She entered the groups at the District contest at Vinton
where each received a superior rating. At the state contest at Oskaloosa,

The purpose of the Boy Scout Movement is to build wholesome character in boys and train them for
participating citizenship. This cannot be accomplished by lectures or by half-way methods. Good
character traits in boys are developed by the actual practice of these traits in real life situations, by
doing the right things instead of the wrong things. Young boys are enabled to take their place in the
adult world by being thrust into practical situations under the direction of leaders who can help them
Scouting in Tama has always been very active. The accomplishments of the last year may be
measured in terms of the fact that two boys, Norman Kauble and Robert Lipka, were chosen to serve
on the staff in the summer camp held at Wild Cat Canyon Camp near Eldora. Norman was Camp
Quartermaster and had charge of buying all supplies for the camp and also had charge of the "Can-
teen" at the camp. Robert, in addition to his Senior Patrol Leader's duties, had charge of swimming
and all water-front activities.
Recently Troop Ill won a first place award in the Merit Badge shown at Marshalltown where they
demonstrated Basketry in competition with scouts from six counties in the Central Iowa Area: namely
Marion, Iasper, Poweshiek, Hardin, Marshall, and Tama county.
This year the Girl Scout roster has grown to an active membership total of forty-eight girls from the
fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Divided into two troops of fifth and sixth, and seventh and
eighth grade girls, they carry out projects of educational, entertainment, and social value. The girls
elect their own leaders and assist them in planning activities. Patrol leaders of the younger troops,
led by Miss Phyllis Clarke, are Sally Rae Pelham and Ioan Mochal: of the seventh and eighth grade
troops, Viola Van de Woestyne and lna Mae Mochal, with Miss Velma Davidson as leader. All mem-
bers of Troop 2 are in the tenderfoot class. beginners in scouting. Troop l members are older Scouts of
the first and second class rank.
At Christmas time the Scouts of Troop 2 sold Christmas cards and donated part of the proceeds to
the Red Cross. Troop l collected toys to be used in Christmas baskets. Twenty baby bibs have re-
cently been completed for the Red Cross.
Using the lives of outstanding women in American history as their theme, Scouts of Troop l pre-
sented a program of music written and sung in the different periods of our national history. Girls
were dressed in costumes of the women portrayed and gave brief biographical sketches of each.
Other patriotic programs have been presented in the junior high assembly.
Throughout the year Scouts have enjoyed hikes, picnics, and parties.

With the close of the 1940-41 baseball season, comes to a close the greatest athletic
record in Tama history, appropriately called the "Golden Era of 'Hap' Miller." The last
four years have produced fifteen trophies. As Coach R. G. Miller leaves Tama, he leaves
behind him the greatest football record, the greatest basketball record, and the great-
est baseball record in the school's history. As this is written, his teams have won 104 of
their last 115 athletic contests.
But this era has meant more than crowded trophy cases, and continued shouts of
victory. It has meant hard work on the practice field learning the "game." The boys
have learned teamwork, for under Coach Miller that has been a basic requirement.
They have learned sportsmanship and clean play, for that is another thing Coach
Miller requires to the 'upteenth degree.
When you're a winner, an accasional loss is hard to take: but Tama teams of the
past four years have taken occasional losses and come back to win again and again.
They have learned to never quit trying, that there is always a chance. They have
learned teamwork, and that "one man" teams are never continually successful, for
sooner or later that one man is stopped. They have learned sporstmanship. When
you're a Winner or the favorite, the crowd is never for you: they like to see the underdog
win, and every team is out to beat you regardless of other losses. Still through all this
-because Tama was a favorite and a Winner-the Miller-coached teams have shown
the finest sportsmanship and have often been mentioned as one of the cleanest playing
teams in any and all sports by their opponents.
This means much now, but it will mean even more in later life. These boys who
have battled for Tama High have learned important lessons in life and learned them
early in life through the channel of athletics.
"They" said Tama wouldn't have much of a football team in 1940, and after the
first game these skeptics were saying "I told you so": for the Tamahawks bowed to the
State Iuvenile Home in the season's opener, 19 to 13, in the last 10 seconds of play.
But better days were coming!
The Spartans of Grundy Center were next scheduled to bowl Tama over, but it
didn't happen. Instead Tama outclassed their northern foe 14 to 6. In another week
the "I told you so" boys suddenly disappeared. Tama went to Nevada and swamped a
good outfit 32 to 0 as "Dutch" Benda sprinted 80 yards twice in four minutes for two
touchdowns. A stubborn Colfax team was next to fall before the Millermen to the tune of
14 to 0.
Conference competition got under way with Tama rolling over Belle Plaine, 19 to 0.
Next came a trip to Brooklyn. The semi-darkness of the Bears' field bothered the Hawks
the first half but a last half spurt made the final tally-Tama 35, Brooklyn 0. Then came
a game which those who saw will never forget. At Montezuma in the roughest game of
the year, the Hawks were held to a 0 to 0 tie.
The next week Tama took their spite out on Marengo's Tigers and smashed them
54 to 0 as everyone but the water boy got into the game. It was the largest score in
Tama history and should stand for some time. Traer was next and fell before the Hawks
in sub-freezing weather 7 to 0 two days after the regular Armistice day struggle had
been postponed because of a blizzard.
And thus the stage was set for the final of the season-Tama and Toledo playing
for the conference championship for the first time in history. A perfect day brought the
largest crowd on record, and Tama outplayed their twin city rivals to win the game 12
to 6 and take their second straight South Half Iowa Cedar League crown.
Appropriately enough Tama's champions placed 6 men on the All-Conference team:
Mason at end, Croskrey at tackle, Robeson at guard, Pratt at center, and Quigley and
Benda in the backfield.
Tama scored 200 points during the 10 game schedule which is the most in Tama his-
tory. The Hawks surrendered only 31 points to their opponents, and Toledo was the
only conference foe to cross Tama's goal. The Millermen won 8, lost l, tied l, and re-
mained unbeaten in their last 9 games.
Next fall several seniors will be missing and missed-eleven lettermen to be exact.

A year ago, in 1939-40 it seemed Tama had had its best basketball team of all
time, but then came the 1940-41 addition of Tamahawk cagers-an unequalled team, a
team which easily held the claim of being the greatest basketball team in the school's
history. This 1940-41 club took the floor 26 times, and the first 25 times they left the
court on the long end of the score before bowing to Grinnell's Central Iowa Conference
champs in the District finals. En route they tucked away the conference crown, county
championship, sectional title, and also copped the conference play-off from Grundy.
North Half title holders.
The Miller-men started rolling by battering Traer, 35 to 18: Montour fell 48 to 30:
Gilman, 23 to 14: then Garwin, 24 to 19. Dysart came to Tama next, and in the roughest
game of the season Tama came out a 47 to 30 winner. The Hawks tripped the Iuvenile
Home 42 to 21, then launched into conference warfare by crushing Brooklyn, 40 to 16.
Marengo bowed 46 to 19: then Tama halted Belle Plaine 30 to 14, and downed Monte-
zuma 22 to 17. The Miller-men completed their first round of conference foes by smash-
ing Toledo, 46 to 9. Brooklyn took their second licking and the severest the Hawks dealt
out all year, 53 to 9. Marengo went down again 26 to 16, then Tama cinched the con-
ference crown with a 18 to 13 win over Belle Plaine. The county tournament interrupted
conference play for a week-end and the Miller-men brought home their second county
championship trophy in as many years. Montour's Cardinals lost 31 to 21. Traer lack-
ed 20 points, losing 32 to 12. The Hawks swept Garwin aside 42 to 18.
A "breather" game with Traer gave Tama victory number eighteen, 33 to 19. Back
in the conference again the Tamahawks won a thriller from Montezuma, 20 to 17, and
then battered Toledo's hapless Raiders, 38 to 9. In what was one of the best games of
the season, Tama came from behind to whip Grundy Center in the Iowa Cedar League
play-off, 29 to 25. Britt, Northern Iowa Conference title holders came to Tama for a
game to bridge the gap until the sectional tourney and the Northerners bowed before
Tama might, 27 to 17.
The sectional tournament at Brooklyn gave the Miller-men another trophy. Brooklyn
went down 23 to 11: Montezuma, 34 to 22. The District tournament was at Tama. In
the first round Tama out-played Williamsburg to win a close one, 22 to 20. Twenty-five
straight wins was the Hawk's unapproached record on the fateful night. The finals of
the district brought 2,000 people to the Hawk's nest to see Grinnell end the Tama streak,
33 to 19, in a battle that was much closer than the score indicates. The game was tied
at half-time, 12 to 12.
Ten major letter winners made this great record: Milo Quigley, Russell Benda.
Edwin Sincox, Orville Vail, Warren Robeson, and Kenneth Overturf, seniors: Bobby
Burns, Iunior: and Duane Cory, Iohn Thill, and Bill Corns, Sophomores. Quigley and
Benda unquestionably rate as the greatest pair of fO1'WCtrdS in TCIIIICI hiStO1'YI they Ie-
ceived wonderful help from Burnes, Sincox, and Vail, the other regulars, but it was
Benda and Quigley who each averaged better than 10 points a game and led their
mates to 25 consecutive victories. Both boys rated the first string All-Conference team
for the second straight year and honorable menii0n in the All-State Selections.
It is doubtful that another team like this will ever grace Tama courts and even
more doubtful that its record will ever be equalled.

As ye 'ol annual goes to press, it has already been determined that Tama's baseball
team is another team of champions. As this is written the Red Sox have just won the
County Tournament for the third straight year and are looking forward to the District
Tourney coming up.
Tama started the season with Bob Burnes pitching a no-hit, no-run game to trounce
Garwin 15 to 0. Barnes City upset the Sox 3 to l in the second game of the season.
but the Red Hose came right back to take their spite out on Garwin and give them their
second beating of the year 8 to 1. Tama downed Dinsdale in the next battle to the
tune of 13 to 1. The Sox avenged that Barnes City defeat by taking a Well-played
game, 7 to 3, over them. Hudson was next on the list and became victim number five
with the final count being 17 to 1. A return battle with Dinsdale was a nip and tuck
scrap with the Sox coming out on the long end 6 to 3.
Then came the County Tournament at Dysart. After a first round bye, the Red Sox
smashed Elberon with Mike Quigley pitching a 5 inning no-hit no-run game. The
score was 10 to 0. In the semi-finals Tama faced a strong Montour nine, but with
"Dutch" Benda pitching beautiful ball the Sox came out with a 2 to 0 victory. Dysart
was Tama's opponent in the finals and in a hotly contested contest the Red Hose cap-
tured the game and championship 4 to 2 and brought home another trophy.
Seniors to be missed next year are: Mike Quigley, Russell Benda, Ed Sincox, Orville
Vail, Melvin Croskey and Cliff Sturtz.

Ah! the paper comes out today, doesn't it? Here, give me the school page!
Hmmm. A feature about nicknames, the sports gossip, Who's Who, an
editorial, a pep meeting article, a So-They-Say column, a personal column.
grade and high school news, and a T'S COLUMN!!
The members of the staff include twenty-three writers, an editor, and a
staff adviser. There are fourteen seniors, seven juniors, two sophomores, and
one freshman on the staff.
Student journalists derive many values from news staff work. They im-
prove their vocabularies, learn to organize material, to be on time because of
the newspaper deadline, and above all, to cooperate and to feel that they have
a real place in their high school.
