o jPOTTAWAMf —to 4ANNUAL HISTORYo— pottawamT V4 annual Hjnstorp The Pottawam is a contraction from the Pottawattamees, the tribe who inhabited this territory, under Chief Tekonquasha from whom Tekonsha received its name. The Pottawattamees and three other tribes occupied what is known as the Northwest Territory. Tekonquasha, a man of peace, was chieftain over a band of several hundred Indians, with a village located where Tekonsha now stands. The legend which contained forebodings of the so-called “pale-faces”, was so impressed upon the tribe by their chieftain that it tinged their lives with a deep melancholy. In spite of the fact that Tecumseh was a great orator he could not persuade the Pottawattomees to join in serving the British in the war of 1812. Just before Tekonquasha died he called the members of the tribe together upon the banks of the St. Joseph and told them how once the Indians were as strong as the oaks and as numerous as the leaves, but now the pale-faces were upon them and they would, as other tribes had done, meet their fate. The Pottawattamees language was very interesting and was the most musical of all tribes. The St. Joseph still ripples over its gravelly bed, the same sun that shone then shines now, but no wigwams can be seen. The members have long passed to their “Happy Hunting Ground”. The white man is now supreme o’er all. G. H.o- POTTAWAM mm —col Jfovctuort Our High School days are not only the happiest days of our lives, but also days of grave import for our future. In them we meet the people and influences that mold our characters. That they may be more vividly recalled when time steals our years away, we have provided this annual. The Pottawam staff of 1924 has carefully weighed many attractive suggestions, and has selected those it thought most appropriate to make this annual one which will, in future years, enable you to see in memory’s eyes the old school and schoolmates as you did this year. Realizing that memories of old friendships and associations may inspire us to greater efforts, we have collected that material which we consider most stimulating to joyful recollections. y— POTTAWAM - mm —CO !924 HOARD OF EDUCATION H.

To our parents and friends who have helped us by their kind interest and encouragement we wish to express our gratitude with the hope that we may in some future years show that such assistance was not given in vain. We are now on the verge of a great battle which will test our courage to the utmost. It is the battle of life that we are facing, that great problem of making | ourselves worthy of our fellow being and of him who created us. | The class of ninteen hundred twenty-four will have unusual opportunities for l service. It is important that we, at the beginning have a right conception of what | this service is to be. The conditions at the present time demand our very best, j It would be a crime for young men and women to begin with the same equipment j of our forefathers. One problem is the conservation of our resources. All the resources of this world were placed here for use and to be used. If these are wasted it will be only a matter of time before mankind will be in need. It is an established fact that our minerals, timber, soil, and oil are being wasted. It is said that during our recent war the used and wasted materials were equal to the total value of the United States. Statesmen divide themselves as progressives and conservatives. There is no progress without conservation and no conservation without progress. Conservation does not mean inaction, neither does action mean progress. They cannot be separated for there is a law, “Unless a thing be used it will die.” The same truth applies to the future action of the class of ’24. There must be no waste of knowledge, physical strength, friendship, manhood and womanhood. From the hour our paths separate, our lives will follow on into channels unknown. We cannot foresee what each one may meet but along the highway will be rocks and barriers which seem unsurmountable but let us by means of patience and perseverance climb them though they be steep and rugged. Do not think because the good you hope for is not achieved immediately, that your efforts have been lost. No honest work is ever lost. Somehow it finds its place in the eternal scheme of the Almighty for a better, happier, and kindlier world. ! ! ! i ! ! I j ' ! IS ...The easy roads are crowded And the level roads are jammed; The pleasant little rivers With the drifting folks are crammed. But of yonder where it is rocky, Where you get a better view, You will find the ranks are thinning And the travelers are few. Where the going’s smooth and pleasant You will always find the throng, For the many, more’s the pity, Seem to like to drift along. Bur the steeps that call for courage, And the task that’s hard to do In the end results in glory For the never wavering few. Juxior Doolittle. li — xm z rl 2 CO 94 Salutatory Parents, Teachers, anil Friends:—1, in behalf of the class of nineteen hundred twenty-four, bid you welcome here to-night. We appreciate your interest in us which prompts you to be present. I'o some we extend a special welcome, for it is to your guidance and help that we owe our success in completing our high school course and can now place the corner stone, which marks the first great epoch of our lives. It is due to your help that we were able to overcome the obstacles in our path. We have reached the summit of the foothills and another step may decide our destiny for failure or success. We are proud we can stand before you and say we arc graduates of the Tekonsha High School, for great efforts have been put forth to reach this top round on the ladder. Many times we were discouraged when we failed in some ot our struggles which made our school life seem but hard work without reward, but with a second thought we followed the old proverb, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” We have received rewards and will always find our education a benefit to us even though we go no farther. We take out of life only what we put into it. Some will take out more than others because of their ability to put more into their undertakings. Today we turn eager and expectant faces towards the future, and tomorrow we go forth to meet it. What that future may bring forth, who can tell? For some it means college for others the busy world; from this point our paths diverge. Perhaps we may never meet again. Time will have relentlessly robbed us of our youth. Old scenes will be changed; once familiar faces will bear traces of sunshine and shadow, sorrow and happiness, love and tears. Only in memory shall we find among half forgotten relics of the past, pictures which neither time nor circumstances can dim. We are glad we are able to take our places among the world workers, but along with this feeling of joy, is pain and regret at parting. For who can tell our future? It is a certainty our lives will not be as closely connected as they have been in the past. As we go forth we will take with us many happy remembrances of the hours spent together during our school life. Many friendships have been made which will last for life, not only among our classmates but among other classes and also among our teachers. In after years we can look back and say we gained what we set forth to gain, that we have not dropped out of the ranks of victory, and that we stand at last at the goal of final achievement. 15I POTTAWAMf -Qlo For to-night, and to-night only, we are still pupils of Tekonsha High School, but memories will linger with us always. We wish to attain all the pleasure possible from this our last evening and our last meeting as a class. Before me stands the future; She beckons for me to come. She says, “Why stand there idle? Your life work is yet undone.” Nine others are beside you, To them I also speak. Great opportunities lie before you, But you they will not seek. Press on, and work with courage, Making success your aim! Hard efforts accomplish wonders; Your future depends on the same. Gladys Waffle. 1GClass History In the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty, twenty-two Freshman started their high school career at the Tekonsha High School. These freshmen wanted to get started and make it known to the other members of the high school that they were a real class. So the word was secretly passed around that at 3:30 o’clock we would have a class meeting in the west class room. But in spite of being quiet about it the seniors got the news and many were present at our first class meeting. We elected M iss Hazel Whittaker president of the class. A few weeks later Hazel resigned, and Ruth Forester, vice-president, took up the duties of the president. Many a delightful event we had that year. Among them was the Valentine Party at Marie Hoenes’ home, a Hallow’een Party at Ruth Forester’s home, and a St. Patrick’s Party at Edna Ossenhimer’s. Beside these we held several parties in the basement of the high school. But in spite of all these good times, we lost one member of the class. This was our first taste of high school life and to all but one it tasted like more and the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-one saw twenty-one report for duty. The sophomore year was not a bright one. During that year six members left school either to try their luck at other schools or for reasons unknown to us. Ruth Forester started school at Coldwater, while Carolyn Davis displayed her knowledge of books at Pontiac, Howard Dunn, Clifford Ossenhimer, Ethel McFadden, Donald Doolittle quit for reasons of their own. During the year only a few social events were held. The class officers for the year were Lela Reincke, president; Paul Branch, vice-president; Lloyd Belote, secretary and treasurer. The beginning of the junior year saw fourteen members take up their work. Gladys Waffle, a Burlington resident and graduate from that school which has only ten grades, decided to get more knowledge of books in Tekonsha. After three weeks of school, Hazel Whittaker left and it looked as though we were doomed with the unlucky number of thirteen, but due to the unusual brilliance on the part of Ethel Darling and Ray Dean they joined the senior class and graduated with the class of 1923. In this tear we had to give the seniors a treat. We had to have some money so we decided to give the play “Aunt Jane”. It was fairly well patronized. With this money all of the seniors, except a few stubborn ones who would accept nothing but a dance, were taken to a musical entertainment and a supper at Union City. The ! ! ' ' ' ! ! ! ! ' ' ! ! ! ! ! ! ! I i i i . { officers of the class of ’24 were Paul Branch, president; Lloyd Belote, vice-president; I Junior Doolittle, secretary and treasurer. | And now conics our senior year. In this graduating class there are but nine of | the original twenty-three left. With the addition of Gladys Waffle it brought our number to ten. During the year many sandwich sales were held and the money with that derived from a movie will be used for graduation. Our class colors are purple and gold; our motto “Climb though the rocks be rugged”. Junior Doolittle was choosen Valedictorian and Gladys Waffle Salutatorian. Since 1 am only Historian and do not believe in recording things until after they have happened, I will leave the rest to be told by our class prophet. George Brott. IKo— POTTAWAM -(mmi Glass Prophecy Taken in Parrs, France. Bernice seated on sofa reading magazine when door bell rings. Bernice—"Mow do you do Earl, I am glad to see you, please come in.” Earl—“This is indeed a pleasure. I read in one of the Paris leading magazines you were an excellent dress designer of rare ability. So you are responsible for all the fashions of France as well as America?” Bernice—“Yes, 1 am a dress designer and sure do enjoy myself creating different styles, but please let us not talk about me now. What brought you to Paris?” Earl—“1 am traveling for the Sears and Roebuck Company getting new ideas on Men’s Clothing. 1 found your address in the City Directory so decided we could have a nice little chat on our school days. By the way, where is Gladys Waffle? I will always remember how our English Teacher used to bawl us out for whispering. It has been twenty years, but my school days will always remain fresh in my memory.” Bernice—“I received a letter from mother and she said Gladys was a Movie Star and had taken Marie Prevost’s place. Marie is a comedy star you know? If you remember we always called Gladys the biggest flirt in the Tekonsha High School. I sure am glad her dreams have come true. I expect to make a visit to America in September so most likely 1 will see Gladys in Los Angeles as I am going to design the costumes for Pola Negri in ‘Bella Donna’. Could you tell me where George Brott is and what he is doing?” Earl—“Yes, I never can lose track of George. He is still located at Tekonsha and has a fine business of his own. He purchased the best Garage from his father and now has turned it into a umbrella repair shop. You know he always had a big future planned. As George and Paul are such good friends I will tell you about Paul too. Paul is the Pope of Rome; at the present he is making a journey to the Holy Land. They say he certainly has changed in the last twenty years.” Bernice—“1 never can imagine him being Pope. People say strange things do happen and now I sure believe it." Earl—“Another surprise for you, Genevieve Hoyt and Lloyd Belote are married and are on their honey-moon to India where they are going to live a happy life of solitude.” Bernice—“I never thought that it was as serious as that. You know Verna is lecturing thru Holland on ‘How to Reduce’, so now 1 expect all the little Dutch girls will be slender.”i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i j B ]0 POTTAWAM —O S24 Karl—“That sure is interesting to hear.,, Bernice—“That makes me think, Junior Doolittle w hom we called ‘Love Me’ is publishing a hook in the l nited States, entitled ‘How to Make Love’. He has made a million dollars in two weeks, so you see his books are in great demand.” Karl—“1 always thought Junior knew more about it than he expressed. Still water runs deep. 1 do believe that 1 will read the book myself, perhaps it will give me a few valuable hints, then perhaps 1 can win a fair mademoiselle.” Bernice—“That really isn’t a bad idea. Did you ever stop to think you are an old bachelor?” Earl—“And you an old maid ? Bernice—“Thanks, Earl. 1 never realized it before but it is true. As 1 was traveling through Spain last summer 1 noticed a poorly clad fellow with a burro and cart. The cart was full of oranges and bananas. Beside him was a senorita or senora. And who do you think it was?” Karl—“1 could never guess.” Bernice—“Dick Martinson and Wauneeta Simon.” Karl—“I never thought that Dick would ever leave his dear old farm in Tekon-sha, but perhaps he will get rich on tropical fruits. I hope so, he was always trying so hard to succeed.” Bernice—“As we have mentioned all the Seniors of 1924, also let us mention the teachers of that year. I understand Mr. Bailey is now President of Cambridge University of Kngland.” Karl—“1 am glad that he is doing so well. Mrs. Main, who was our English teacher is trying to make the American Literature book more perfect by adding a few more writers and poets. Mrs. arwick, mathematics teacher is running on the republican ticket for mayor of Tekonsha.” Bernice—“I do hope she wins. Miss Hcrschy, the Ancient History teacher, is still traveling around in the Durant Sport Car, while the Music and Art I eacher. Miss kuchenbecker, is publishing a new song book entitled, Do Little’. 1 hey say it is making a great hit.” Karl—“I’ll have to go to the music store and purchase the book. Well as it is already four o’clock 1 must leave as 1 have an important engagement at the Hotel LaRue. Before 1 leave please let me tell you what a pleasure 1 had in being able to have the opportunity of seeing you, and I hope to see you again when you visit America. An Rcvoir.

His daring tackles were the terror of all opponents, and as a captain displayed real leadership. Martinson —Full-back was Dick’s position. He was in every play and carried the ball for many yards. L. Bhuote—Lloyd was one of the best halves in this part of the state. With the ball tucked under his arm he would run the length of the field. P. Branch—“Kingnutt” played end or full and many a time he saved the team from a bad defeat by one of his noted punts. He was the best punter in southern Michigan. The school will lose one of her real men when “Kingnutt” leaves. Jenkins—At center "Pete” played a very good game. If sickness had not kept him out of the games the last of the season we would be able to tell more about his work. Hudson—“Huddy” was one of the most feared tackles in this county. At the beginning of the season Ray said he did not know anything about the game but would come out and see what he could do. He is one of our big hopes for next year. Doom 111.k—Junior held a guard position on the team and a man never held down the position any better. Junior never had much to say but he was always there when he was needed. E. Branch—“Dan Boone’s” large proportion is of some account. Attacks centered against his part of the line generally failed and as he is only a Freshie he still has a chance to hit the line harder than ever. Letts—A harder fighter than Farl never was. He was one of the main stays of the team and his work was greatly appreciated. Too bad, you haven’t another year “Ickie”. W. Belotk—“Dutch” did some very good work at half. He suffered a few injuries but was in the most of the games. Abel—“Goopy” did some very good work in catching passes. He was also able to spoil a few passes for the opponents.

' i 31) POTTAWAM -mmt —to V 4 1924 Girls’ Basketball The basketball teams of past years have all done good work, but even their fine records have been surpassed by the excellent record of the team of 1924. The work of Donna Milliman as forward was almost too good to be true, but the scores are proof enough that it is true. Florence Dunn and Georgia Belle VViltsc have also done fine work at forwards. Guarding is an important part of the game, and this was well taken care of by Francelia Failing, Gladys Waffle, and Arleen Easterday. Our centers, Fern Hunt and Louise Fish, saw to it that the ball was given the start which would bring about the proper ending, which is another important part of the game. There is only one of the first team lost by graduation so the prospects arc exceedingly bright and we predict a winning team for next year. The second team made a most creditable showing, so we know that when members of the second team are called upon to take the place of those graduating and moving away they will be able to fill those places as they will need to be filled to make next year a success.i Back Row—Coach Bailey, J.

VU Baseball Baseball practice started April 7th with about eighteen men out. Out of these eighteen men Coach Bailey hopes to develop a Championship team. Only two were lost through graduation last year and out of these eighteen men eight are letter men. Last year Tekonsha won nine of the twelve game schedule, winning from Litchfield, Quincy, Homer, Athens, Marshall, and Springport. A very stiff schedule has been arranged including Albion, Battle Creek, and Union City. This annual goes to press before any games will be played, but if appearances are not deceiving Tekonsha will be the Calhoun County Champions of 1924.K POTTAWAM ol V4 HIGH SCHOOL UNION OFFICERS Dick Martinson, President Paul Branch, Vice-President Dorothy Hicks, Secretary Junior Doolittle, Treasurer Louise Fish, Yell Mistress Harold Pritchard, Yell-Master ANNUAL STAFF Louise Fish, Editor-in-Cliief Genevieve Hoyt, Assistant Editor Francelia Failing, Art Editor Wauneeta Simon, Joke Editor Ray Hudson, Business Manager Supt. Bailey, Faculty Advisor 15BKL IPOTTAmM — 1 9 co V4 Oh! Those Fickle Women The football team of the Greenville High School was working hard in preparation for their first game. It was Wednesday and the game was only two days away. Friday they were to play the Lima High School at Lima. This was expected to be one of the hardest games of the season. The positions on the team had nearly all been won. Right halfback was the only position that had been contested for, and the contestants, who were Hershall (till and Robert Logan, were rivals for more than the halfback position. Verl Davis, the belle of the school, was the other object of their rivalry. Verl was a very “cute Kid” as some of the boys put it; a good dancer and everything. So far Hershall and Robert stood about even in Verl’s affections. Hershall’s father owned a nice Buick Sedan, which Verl liked to ride in very much, but Robert was a very good dancer. So these two things made the boys about even in Vcrl’s eyes. At last Friday came. The football team was to leave for Lima at two o’clock. Most of the players were going in their cars. Hershall C till had decided to ride with his cousin, Herbert Long, who was visiting Hershall. Herbert was the proud owner of a new Nash Sport Roadster. The boys had been longing for a chance to try its speed ; the trip to Lima seem to offer the opportunity. Hershall made the excuse to Prof. Meeks, that he would be a little late in starting as he wanted his cousin to have as much time to visit as possible. “You must be there on time Hershall, because I want you to play today,” said Professor Meeks. “Oh, I will, don’t worry,” replied Hershall. Robert, who was standing near-by talking to Verl overhead the conversation. “Well, Verl, seeing I am not going to play today, can 1 have a date with you tonight ?” asked Robert. “Oh, I don’t know Robert, I had about promised Hershall a date tonight. Ask me some other time. With this she turned and walked away. That is nice, thought Robert, can't play in the game nor can I have a date with Verl. Hershall seems to get the best of me all around. l he word was then given to start for Lima, which was twelve miles from Greenville. In due time the procession, led by Prof. Meeks, arrived at Lima. Quite a large crowd was out to see the game. As soon as the boys got into their uniforms they began signal practice, before starting the game. There was nothing to be seen of Hershall yet, so Prof. Meeks, who was also coach, told Robert to take the place of halfback. When the time came for the game to start there was still no sign of Hershall. tc “Well, 1 guess you will have to take Hershall’s place in the game Robert,” said Meeks. “All right, 1 will do my best,” Robert replied. The two teams then took their positions. Lima won the toss and decided to receive. Finally the whistle blew, and the two teams Hew into action. In the first quarter it was plain to see that Lima had a real team. They used a shift play that seemed to upset the Greenville defense. In the second quarter Lima pushed across a touchdown. Oh, how the Greenville rooter did groan. During the rest between halves Prof. Meeks gave the boys a severe talking to. “What’s the matter with you fellows? Don’t you know enough to shift when they shift? Now you fellows snap out of it and get a touchdown,” he exclaimed. Robert, who was laying on the ground, said nothing. Just then Vcrl walked up to where he lay and said: “Oh, Robert, please try to win. I want our team to win so bad. Those Lima girls have said the meanest things to us, and I want to get the laugh on them. If you get a touchdown next half, you can have a date tonight.” “Then I will have that date tonight,” replied Robert. Just then the whistle blew and the teams again took their positions. This time Greenville received the kickoff. Robert, who was playing far back, caught the ball. Forward he ran, dodging and twisting away from the Lima tacklers until he reached midfield. To the right of him, the field was almost free of Lima players. This way he turned and ran like a deer. Now there was only one Lima man between him and the goal. If he could only get away from him, a touchdown was his. Oh, how Verl was yelling. “Come on Hob, come on Bob.” Just as the Lima player dove for him, he made a quick side step. The tackier turned a nice somersault, and Robert plunged across the goal line. Hoy! how that Greenville crowd did cheer. Then came the try for point. The Greenville quarterback succeeded in dropkicking the ball squarely between the goal posts. This made the score seven and six in favor of Greenville. The scoring of the touchdown seem to give the Greenville team new life. The Lima boys could not gain an inch the rest of the game. Finally the whistle blew. As Robert walked off the field Verl rushed up and grabbed him by the arm exclaiming: “Well you won the game and the date too, Robert.” “Yes, that is more than 1 expected to do,” he replied. “Can 1 call at seven, tonight?” “You surely can,” Verl answered. On the way home Hershall Gill and his cousin were picked up. They had met with an accident, which came near to being a severe one. While rounding a curve at a high rate of speed they had swerved into a telephone pole smashing one of the car’s wheels. When Hershall heard the details of the game he became rather downcast. 47IPOTTAWAM —65«$5n 5_ -JLio. That night promptly at seven Robert drove up to Verl’s home in his Ford coupe. Verl did not keep him waiting long. My, how pretty she looked. Robert could hardly resist the temptation of grabbing and kissing her. They then drove down town and went to a Movie. After the show they took a long ride. It was a beautiful evening with a bright moon. “You sure are some football player, Robert,” said Verl. “I think you are some pretty girl too,” replied Robert. With that Verl laid her head on Robert’s shoulder and sighed. “You know Robert, I don’t mind riding in a Ford when I have a real chauffeur.” Oh, you fickle women, thought Robert.
