This Year . . .
This Iuka Staff wants to retain the
those boys who left our halls to
join the services of Uncle Sam, and
those high school days that each
and everyone of you holds dear.
In my all too meager reading of literature I
chanced upon the following lines. The author
to me is unknown:
"Lest we forget the many joys
That we have had in days gone by
I'1l write them closer to my heart
That when the days of sorrow come
Sweet memories never may depart."
I hope you have many pleasant memories of
your school days, but life is not life unless you
experience some "bitter" memories also. I
hope that through these days you have worked
together you have acquired these qualities of
Christian character, faith, and courage and that
when the days of "testing" come you will be
able to meet them with hearts unafraid.
431' DEDIEATIUN if
Th have been indeed many different highlights and occasions during
our high school career, which we shall never forget. Yes, we had the
greatest football team in the history of T.H.S. this year: our music

Tama is one of the many schools that are giving all they can for Victory even though it
means giving up teachers. Many schools were forced to do this same thing: therefore these
vacancies were difficult to fill.
Mr. R. A. Cross was the first teacher who had to go: Miss Eleanore Beatty stepped in and
took up his baton. Athletes and sport ians alike were saddened at the departure of Coach Harold
Hoskins for the Army. Assistant Coach Rogers filled in the vacancy. Kenneth Wittcop was trans-
ferred irom the grade to the high school and Mrs. Muriel Bro took his place in the Central School.
All went well until March when Mr. Wittcop was called for service. This time Mrs. Elaine Thomp-
son filled his position. One of the latest recruits is Priscilla Lyon who joined the Waves!
Despite all these changes the school year has moved along on schedule and the highest of
praise should go to those who have made it do so.

This staff is organized for the purpose of collecting all the material that contributed
to the past year of school. It has preserved in this book all the activities which will be
only memories in the years to come. Each individual does things for which he is out-
standing and the Iuka is one means of keeping that record.
Due to war time conditions, it has been increasingly difficult to secure the commodi-
ties necessary to produce the book. However, through economy and wise construction,
the staff has been able to put out a very fine Iuka.
The hope of the entire staff is that this Year's book will bring back many happy
memories of school days spent in Tama High. In thumbing through this book in future
years, may it recall to mind things that would otherwise be forgotten.

The Iunior Class will complete the end of the school year with one wish, and one
alone, that next year will return to our school the boys and teachers who have so gal-
lantly given up their own way of life for our protection.
By selling pop corn, candy, and hamburgers at the football and basketball games
the class was very successful in raising money for the social event of the year, "The
lunior and Senior Prom." The Iunior Class Play helped to contribute a good sum for
the same purpose.
The close of the school year is drawing near and the thought of each Iunior is that
next year will end the happy high school days. Though they will never be able to take
the place of the seniors that are with us this year, they will endeavor to hold high the
standards reached by that class and strive to leave the same fine examples for the next

The second year of this class's era in Tama High School has come almost to an
end. Already some students are showing promises of better things ahead.
A number of students from this class have participated in declamatory work. One
is writing on the news staff and several others are "signed up" for next year.
Various instruments of the band are played by different class musicians. Among
these are the trombone, cornet, drum, bassoon, French horns, alto saxophone, and a
clarinet. This shows that this class is almost a band in itself.
Sports, too are claiming some of these sophomore boys as valuable to the basket-
ball team, baseball team, and football team. Those who have worked hard and
proved their ability are Merle Kensinger, Ben Morgan, and Rex Coleman as well as
This will be the Iunior Class next year and they will have more opportunities to let
these talents develop.
Lincoln Essay Medals were awarded to Arnold Chantland, Audra Peters, and
Bernard Shilhanek for their excellent essays on "Why Buy Bonds."
Officers were: President, Ben Morgan: Vice-President, Georgia Betz: Secretary and
Treasurer, Alan Iones: Sponsor, Miss Elizabeth Roberts.
People usually speak of this class as the "Green freshies"! However, after having
spent a year in high school, they feel it is time to pass the tradition on to the succeed-
Even though these people may seem small and unimportant now, a few years will
mark a different trend in their lives. Some are already represented inthe band: others
have great possibilities in the field of athletics. Vocal music will be the aim of others
while some will develop in the field of dramatics. Then, of course, there will be the
scholastic type of student who will stick to his "A's"l
This class is well deserving of praise. May they be as outstanding when the time
comes for them to stand on the threshold of graduation as the preceding classes have

April 19 Tama Public Schools had another "Vic-
tory Drive." This time it wasn't for scrap but for
bonds and stamps. The total bonds and stamps sold
at both the grade and high schools amounted to
33,049.00 The high school students purchased
31,612.50 worth of bonds while the grade school was
not far behind with Sl,337.50 worth.
This is just one high school out of the hundreds of
thousands throughout the country that are trying to
show the boys in the service-maybe from their
own schools-that they are behind them 1002!
Surely with a spirit like this, how could it be other
than an "Allied Victory?"
Tama l'liql1's Part
In the War Ellurt
Are you "all out" for Victory? Tama
Public Schools have certainly been since
the beginning of the school year right up
to the end of it.
The students started to work by help-
ing with the scrap drive. Six industrious
senior boys scouted around and found cr
huge two ton tank partly buried in the
dump. After struggling with it several
days, the boys were able to raise it from
the ground as is illustrated by the picture
at the left.
By the end of the drive, the students
had brought in between thirteen and
fourteen tons of scrap. It was time to cele-
brate! A "Scrap Queen" was elected:
Ruthe Burnes held this honorary position.
Led by the band, the students paraded
through the business district displaying
their scrap in trucks and behind tractors.
One of the outstanding attractions of the
parade was a "Victory Model T" owned
and operated by Arnold Chantland. It
was typical of the patriotism of American
school boys throughout the country.

A group which displayed an interest and a true enjoyment in singing was the mixed chorus. Under the very capable
direction of Miss Bush, it progressed rapidly after its organization at the beginning of the second semester. This group also
took part in the music festival which was held at Toledo, March 31.
Many members were added to the mixed chorus after the picture of this group was taken. These students were
Genevieve Marlow. Shirley Nelson, Iune Stigers, Edith Mason, Gloria Youngbear, Voda Weaver La Von Iacobsen, Rita
Jacobsen, Alice Mochal, and Kenneth Peters.
One of the most entertaining of the small groups was the boys' quartette. These boys certainly displayed their en-
joyment in singing. It was composed of Iames Mochal, bass: Fred Patterson, baritone: Lynn Frink, second tenor: and
Iulius Lauderdale, first tenor.
Several boys did some fine work on solos also. Iames Mochal, Iulius Lauderdale. and Fred Patterson displayed some
fine talent in this work.
GIRLS ELEE CLUB
Tama again had a glee club of which everyone was very proud. This success was due to the keen interest and de-
termination shown by the girls and their new director. Miss Ione Bush. Several appearances were made during the year,
but perhaps the highlight of these was the participation in the music festival at Toledo. March 31.
Officers for the year were the following: Manager, Marilyn Bramblett: Assistant Manager, Alice Mochal: Secretary,
An outstanding small vocal group was the girls sextet. These girls sang for various programs and certainly provided
music that everyone enjoyed hearing. This well organized and trained group was composed of Betty Ratliffe, and Ianet
Lauderdale, first soprano: Alice Overturf and Ianice Sincox, second soprano: Audra Peters and Iune Stigers, alto.
The vocal department was very fortunate in having the fine group of talented soloists that it had this year. These
students sang several times throughout the year, and they all took part in the music festival at Toledo. We wish continued
success to these soloists: Edith Mason, Betty Ratliffe and Gloria Youngbear, soprano: Alice Overturf, Genevieve Marlowe,
and Ianet Lauderdale, mezzo soprano: Audra Peters, contralto.

One of the largest and finest organizations in the music department this year was
the band. Under the excellent direction of Miss Beatty the band accomplished some fine
work and also displayed a true spirit of musicianship.
Throughout the year this group gave several performances. Stirring and entertain-
ing music was provided at all the football and basketball games. They also gave sev-
eral concerts, but perhaps the highlight of the whole year was the participation in the
music festival which was held here in Tama on April 2. Our band had the opportunity
of playing in the mass band which was composed of bands from Toledo, Traer, and

The Hawks had this year the greatest team in the history of Tama High. Their records will long live
in the annals of their high school Alma Mater. Starting the season with ten seniors and one junior, Coach
Hoskins, assisted by Mr. Rogers, built a team that went through the entire season untied and undefeated. They
had only a six point total scored against them. Coach Hoskins was called into military service before the
end of the season, and Mr. Rogers finished out the season.
The first game of the season was with the Spartens of Grundy Center at Tama. In this game the Hawks
won by a 13 to O victory. The next rival for the Hawks was Nevada in a non-conference game. On a bad
night, with about an inch oi snow on the ground, the Hawks beat them. also. by a score of 13 to 0. In the
previous year at Colfax, we had received a nice defeat, and we wanted to give it back. This we did, the
score-14 to U.
Then the first conference game with Belle Plaine at Tama. The Hawks, although coming out with a 7 to
0 victory, played their worst game of the season. The next game was with the Brooklyn Bears at Brooklyn.
This game. tumed out to be a one sided affair with a 38 to 0 margin. Monte was the next eleven to meet the
Hawks. After the Hawks started rolling they rolled up a 40 to O. Then came the game to see which team
would take top honors in the conference, Marengo or Tama. The Hawks made their bid when they scored
early in the fourth quarter. Marengo threatened once, but the Hawks held them on the one yard line for
four downs. This was a goal line stand that will long be remembered in Tama.
On November ll came the annual Traer-Tama Armistice Day game. Before the sound of the final gun the
Hawks had sustained a great loss. The Hawks had been scored on for the first time this year-final score
21 to 6. Then the final game of the season with the Hawks' northern rival, Toledo. The final score being
46 to 0.
This year set many outstanding records that the teams of the future may strive to break.
First, the Hawks were untied and undefeated: ne xt, they had a total of only 6 points scored against them.
Third, in the Toledo game the Hawks held them to no first-in-tens, Fourth, also in this game the Hawks never
once had to punt.
Some of the boys received mention throughout the state. On the third I. D. P. A. All State Team, Bill
Coms won the half back post. On the Iack North All State Team, Captain Bob Alexander made the sixth team.
Also to receive honorable menion on these teams were Iim Rucker at a tackle, Frankie Hardon at the quarter-
back, and Kenneth Porter at the guard.
The following boys will be missed next year from the starting line-up because of graduation: Bill Coms,
Capt., Bob Alexander, Frankie Hardon, Kenneth Porter, lim Rucker, Iohn Thill, George LaMasters, Russell Shope,
Duane Cory. Fred Van de Walle, and Norman Kauble.

The Hawks' 1942-43 basketball team, winner of both the South Half Iowa Cedar
League Conference and Tama County Tournament, will long be remembered as one of
the shortest evenly built teams that Tama has had for some time.
Although getting off to a bad start in their first game, they came back to win 17 and
drop only 5.
The Hawks dropped out of the state running in the finals of the sectional tournament
by losing to a strong Montour quintet, whom the Hawks had beaten twice previously.
Opening the season with Montezuma there, in what was scheduled as only a
practice game, the Hawks met their first defeat to the tune of 19 to 25. Coming back
strong, they walked around Garwin 32 to 14. Then, for the first home game of the sea-
son, the Hawks turned in a very good show by downing Gilman 44 to 19. Continuing
with their winning streak, they journeyed to Belle Plaine to play the first conference
game, the outcome of this not being decided until the closing minutes. Final score 33
to 26. To the score of 21 to 15 the Hawks met their first scheduled defeat at the hands
of Keystone. The Bears of Brooklyn were the next in line, and they, also, defeated the
Hawks in a very closely played game-17 to 15.
Then it was that the Hawks started on the upward trend, winning six games in a
row before being stopped by Montour at Montour. Montezuma came first with a 28 to
21 victory: then Montour, 36 to 30: Marengo, a conference rival, stooped to a 35 to 30
defeat. Belle Plaine, in their return game, again bowed to defeat by a 25 to 19 margin.
Then to even the score for the previous defeat, the Hawks bounced Brooklyn in the clos-
ing quarter 27 to 21. 35 to 16 was the next score but this time in favor of Montour.
This was the Hawks worst defeat of the season. Toledo and Marengo were the next two
to go down by scores of 40 to 20 and 31 to 23 respectively.
This closed the season for the Hawks in scheduled games. The sectional tourna-
ment at Montour was next in line. In their first three games, the Hawks had hardly any
trouble. First Dunbar 24 to 35 victory: LeGrand by a 62 to 11 margin, then Toledo by a
54 to 26 score. This moved the Hawks up to the finals with Montour, but they failed to
make the grade. The final score of the season was 39 to 20.
This officially closed the season for the team of 42-43, a team that should long be
remembered in Tama High.
Those who will be missed from the line-up next year are all the first five men: for-
wards--Bob Alexander and Bill Corns, center-Fred Van de Walle, and guards-Frankie
Hardon and Duane Cory.

"ls this Thursday? Then the school paper is out today!" and there is a mad scramble
for-the "T'S COLUMN!!" After thoroughly digesting this, the reader turns to the other
features of the school page-the editorials, the grade news, the high school news, "Pop-
ping the Question," sports news, and a feature story.
The news staff has been fortunate this year to have such capable editorial writers.
feature story composer, sports analist, and an "all-round" staff which has shown some
outstanding contributions to the field of journalism.
The staff is composed of twelve seniors, three juniors, and one sophomore. As is
customary the majority of the staff are seniors: however, a few underclassmen are put on
so that they can have the experience of carrying on the work when the seniors are gone.
Miss Stevens was the faculty advisor.
Declamatory work has been carried out quite extensively in Tama High School for
a number of years. When the contest first started, there were three entries in the oratori-
cal division, five in the dramatic, and five in the humorous: from these, nine contestants
were chosen to compete in the home contest. Those who received firsts in the home
contest were Bill Platt, oratorical: Alice Overturf, dramatic: and Frances Chantland, hu-
morous. In the State Preliminary Contest held in Tama, these same three students
again received first division ratings. However, at the Sub-district Contest held at Traer.
Frances received a second rating while Alice received a third. Bill was not required
to compete in this contest. The District Contest was held in Tama and Bill was victori-
ous: the State Contest was next in line and Bill received a second division rating
which is high in a state contest.
To these students goes appreciation for all the talent and ability they've shown
plus the credit due Miss Lockwood for her capability in teaching them.

SENIUR CLASS PLAY
This year the senior class presented a three act farce, "Second Childhood." The
play centers around a situation in which an old professor thinks that he has discovered
a medicine that will return a person to their youth. He has tried it on dogs and cats
and feels that the experiment will be complete when he has tried it on a human being.
An aged general is interested and hopes to win the hand of the professor's daugh-
ter in marriage: however, the daughter objects to it because she says the general is an
"old man." The professor decides to try the medicine on the general, but in the pro-
fessors absence the general tips over the bottle and spills the liquid. The general
leaves the house before the professor returns: however, a baby is left during the lull.
In the excitement the professor thinks that the general has been turned back into a baby.
The climax comes when the professor thinks that he has turned his daughter back into
a baby also. Nevertheless, all's well that ends well and the play ends well!

FRESHMAN AND SUPHMUBE PLAYS
The Freshmen produced two plays this year and combined talents with the Sopho-
more class for a third play. The development of this talent now will help the students
when it comes time to plan for the junior and senior class plays.
"Not Quite Such a Goose" was the title of the first freshman play. Those who
participated in it were Irene Plucar, Glen Smith, Anna Vavroch, Iohn Dellett, and lean
The second play was "Rehearsal of a Play within a P1ay." The roles were played
by Ina Mae Mochal, Dorothy Plehal, lean Smith, Verna Spire, Louise Kupka, Leona
Graff, and Betty Quigley.
The play which was combined of both freshmen and sophomores was "Rich Man.
Poor Man." Those who saw action were Georgia Betz, Alice Mochal, Ben Morgan,
Genevieve Marlowe, Gladys Church, Mabel Coleman, Betty DuPre, Marlys Walls, Alan
Iones, Ianet Lauderdale, Merle Kensinger, and Ianice Sincox.
These three productions were under the capable supervision and direction of Miss
