This was the only Annual published by Tekonsha High School Seniors until 1954 when the Senior Class of that year published "The Echo". In 1935, the Annual was called "The Boomerang". We, the Seniors of 1956 have decided to call our Annual the second edition 01 "The Pottawam" and hope this name will be used for the annuals published in Tekonsha High School in the future. The Pottawattamees were a tribe of Indians living in end around where Tekonsha now stands. Their chief wa3 Te- kon-qua-sha for whom Tekonsha was named. ThiS' tribe wan very large and well known. It and three other tribes occupied the Northwest Territory. Just before Te-kon-qua-sha died he called the members of the tribe together upon the banks of the St. Joseph river and told them how once the Indians v ere as strong as the oaks and as numerous as the leaves, but now the palefaces were upon them and they would, as other tribes had done, meet their fate. The St Joseph still follows the same course, the sane sun-hhines now as shone then, but no wigwams are seen. The members have long since passed to thfeir "Happy Hunting Grounds". C. K.

Being anxious to get started, we h=ld a class meeting with Miss Guay acting as class advisor. The seventh and eighth grades were together, and all of the officers were elected from the eighth grade. The reason, we were told, was because they were older and more experienced. Ned Martinson was chosen president; Martha Yost, vice-president; and Bert Shedd secretary and treasurer. Our class had but tv o parties that year, one a sxating party at Hodunk cncl the other at the Martinson cottage at Morrison Lake. The eighth grade started with thirteen members but soon gained Pearl Tudor, making fourteen. Mis3 Ash was our class advisor and the officers were: Dorothy Rice, president; Robert Slzeland, vice-president; and Scott Randall secretary and treasurer. Scott was at first unwilling to accept the office because he said he didn't have a watch to keep the minutes of the meeting. Our classes were to have two parties but because of bad behavior we were only allowed one. This was a Christmas party. Dorothy Rice Invited the eighth graders to her house for a party of all winter sports. During both years v e accompanied the high school on the annual picnics which v e re both held at Goguac iiake. In the ninth grade our class enrollment increased nearly fifteen per cent. Geraldine and Evelyn SumnerfieId moved to Texonsha and we accepted several rural students into the fold. In all we counted twenty five green Rreahraen. hiss Ash contin--nod u our class advisor and our officers wore: Evelyn Sumner-Held, president; Geraldine Sumnorfield, vino-president; end Scott Handnil, secretary md treasurer. This year we had two parties; one a theatre party r.t Homer with refreshments afterward at Dorothy Rice’s home, find the second at Tekonsha at the Yeoman Hall. There was also the Fr shnun-Sophonore party at the Baptist Gym. In the tenth grade vve l''st four of our members: Geraldine Summerfield, Arnold Malcuit, If ry Stratton and Glare Long, making our number twenty one. Our officers v re: Paul Saltz-gaber, president; Erma Green, vice-president; Evelyn Sumer-field, secretary and tre surer, with t.iiss Ash acting as class advisor. Our Freshman-Sophomore party war. held early in the year, ’ 7e had two parties; one a skating party at Brttle Creek, and the other a picnic at Paul Snltzgaber'a. In our Junior year we had only nineteen members. Lymon Fox left and was later replaced by Isr.belle Bowling and Harris Hayne. The first meeting v as the election of officers under the supervision of our new class advisor, Mr. Stroud; The follow-ing officers were elected: President, Lewis hcElhenie; Vice-president, Scott Kendall; and Secretary and Treasurer,•Erma Green. As each class is allowed one nerty a semester, we Juniors proceeded to take n vantage of this opportunity. A class meeting was held and soon the Garden Theatre at M' rshall was filled v ith worthy Juniors who had gone to 'see "The Captain Hates the Sen".One of tho main events of the .'fur, v f 3 'e 3 " ing of the Junior play, ‘‘When Sally Go-net to Town 1 unu n- tne direction of Mr. Canfield.

This will he a memorable -vent in the diaries of all those who attended. It was t groat pageant of youth, gr -ce and beauty that moved to the strains of Ray Wilder’s orchestra. In the year of 1035 ,?h h group of nineteen dignified boys and girls inrnedirtely took over the Senior throne vacated by last year's graduating class. A class mooting was held under the supervision of our class advisor, Mr. uert’nson, to elect the officers s follows: Harjorie VonOrracn, president; Ruth Dean, vice-president; secreteey, Blanche Thomas; and treasurer, Paul daltz n.ber. A little later we gained a new member, Virginia. Phelps. This year each class had to give an assembly program. We Seniors gave the first one which was v hoc:c Debrtc.

Written for Senior Glass by Marj orie Woolm13eAt the beginning of the school year the Seniors decided to make Washington D. C. their goal for Senior Skip Day. Everything was done to obtain the amount of noney necessary for the trip } still at th« end of the '"'pp the necessr.ry funds were lacking. So, after much contemplation, we decided to visit Detroit. We sent for ell the necessary infora-ation and found that the Wolverine Hotel would he the most economical and suitable niece to spend the one night that we were g ing to e there. After the nfficult job of finding enough cars to take us to Detroit, we started Monday afternoon, May 18. Everyone was very eager to go. Y e arrived there about 00 o'clock and nr.de our reservations at the hotel. To our surprise and joy wc learned that eleven of the "light Tigers" were living at this hotel. Although nany were too bashful, a number of the girls were brave enough to get several of the il; yers autographs. Our first ierl was eaten at the hotel and after v e had eaten and regained some of our self-Ciinf,4dence we decided to attend the Michigan Thea.tr . This w s r very beaui iful theatre ane many of us enjoyed ad siring tlu inside of the building as well as enjoying the show. As an added attraction, one of Major Bove • s units as- seen on the stage. After a good nights rest- for lost of us- the Seniors made their ways to restaurants where th . ir breakfast was eaten. At 9:5 o'clock we started on our tour to GreenfieldVillage. A special bun wen llred end we were shown mi the points of interest on the wry there, rnong which v pa Ford's motor plant. About three hour? were spent at the village which was enjoyed by everyone. In the afternoon, those who wisnerl to attend, the Wasnington-B.troit baseball game did so and those who wished to window shop or otherwise v nt their own, way. Both psrties were well chaperoned,. Of course, for those who went to the ball game the afternoon proved to be very entertaining, and from all reports the rest of the crowd spent an interesting afternoon. We reluctantly too:{ our leave of Detroit early Tuesday evening. The journey home v«-as not ms lively as the one going. So our journey to Detroit, the motor capital of the world,, so long anticipated -nri so much enjoyed, is now a part of our pp31 history- a life long memory.

The play was presented December tenth, eight o'clock at the Guild Hall. Prince Tashum Sombore is expected at the Upton home 'and there is to be a reception given for him in the evening. Things really st rted to happen when Harry Huston, George's best friend, dropped in to see George for r while; the very person Mary Upton did'nt want around. Later the Prince's trunk came and v little while after, a telegram saying that thr prince would not be th-re. Harry takes a scarf that, lv; finds on the davenport, wraps it around his head and imitates the prince. Mrs. Upton w Iks into the room and gives him the most d'-lightiul welcome.The two boys attempt to tell her differently but she interrupts then every time. Even Eleanor who has seen Ht rry Huston before mistakes hin for the prince. i Crumley, a detective, enters the house disguised rs p. newspaper man. His bribe is accepted. That night t th- inception n very interesting conversation is carried on between Mrs. Greeley, Helen, her daughter, and Mr. iC’-unley; a few moments l tor, the prince. After having r talk with .Crumley about seeing strange nen in the garden, Eleanor receives • strange telegram saying the prince will be there. She pays o attention- to the telegram but tears it up. George and Harry are in the room alone when the real prince who Is a thief and impersonator, enters. They tie and gag him. He is placed in a room upstairs. John, who has taken a disliking to the prince, Harry, because of Eleanor's interest in him, r ads poem to Eleanor, only to find out that the prince has ■’ead it to her e; rlier in the evening. He then tries to make her think that the prince obtained it from hin. At first she believes hin but finds out later that he has lied, to her. After the real prince is untied her goes to Mr. Upton with his story. Hnr-y has been sent to jail but breaks away from the men and comes to make c confession.

When the contest results came out we had non plan 1 in second, third, and eighth . places with a grand tocnl of eight points more than any other school. We had won and were highly elated. We made a drive for new members and as a result we initiated six green-hands. With our increase in membership we decided to put on our first community venture, a community fair. It had been the custom in Tekonsha to have a day set aside as Visitor's Day. We decided to hold our fair in the evening of Visitor's Dry. We had each rural school bring in agricultural exhibits, which were judged in the afternoonnnd given prizes. In the evening farmers' exhibits were nut up with prizes awarded. Professor Rather of M.S.C. was the main speaker of the evening. We invited the Union City boys over to a meeting the night they received their charter, to see how a meeting was conducted. To Initiate three boys into green-hands' degree and six boys into the degree of Future Farmers we held a banquet to which we invited our fathers and friends. The Centerville chapter and advisor initiated the boys. Our next venture was to give program for the East Leroy Community Club, We wished to snow the rural school eighth graders the advantages of going to highschool, so we gave n banquet especially for them. Our school nurse gave a notion picture and our advisor and i(.-H club leaders gave short talks. We have now elected our officers for the coming year who are: President, Russel Eldred; Vice-President, Warren Casebeer; Secretary, George Watston; Treasurer, Boyd Rlash-field; Reporter, Marlin McElhenie.

It was organized on a non-profit brsis and is partially support d by the Glee Clubs. The orchestra plays at several programs sponsored by the Glee Clubs and other school activities. Tne orchestra this year has ten members, this being the largest group since organization. The orchestra has node but two appearances this year. The first on Visitor's Day and the second on the nusic program presented for the school. The first semester rehearsals were held once a week but after the presentation of the operetta there were throe rehearsals every week. The main discord, or perhaps we had better say drawback. to the present orchestra is that they have no drumaer. If anyone is interested in joining the orchestra as a drummer, get all practiced up even if you have to use a dishpan to get started, end bring your drums and come on and join. The present members ore: Plano- Elna Main Saxophone- Maurice Hodges, Owen Vincent Violins- Harris Hayne, Jack Fousdl, Mrxine Moore, Erma Green, Eleanor Abel and Helen Shedd.

At the first meeting, officers were elected to act for the school year. Russel Eldrod w»a elected president; Howard Main, vice president; and Mac Long, secretary and fcreu surer. The boy3 cooperated very well in everything they endea-vor-ed'to do. They furnished entertainment at several assembly programs, at the Fathers’ and Sons’ Banquet, and they took an active part in helping to nut on the Operetta. This is the second year of Boys’ Glee Club work in the school and we hope that it can be continued. GIRLS' GLEE CLUB In the fallxof 1933, the Girls' Glee Club of Tekonsha highschool was reorganized under the supervision of Miss Ash. Due to the fact that so many -new members joined, the Glee Club how consists of 33 members. The first, business of importance was the election of officers. Elma Main was elected as president, Helen Shedd as vice-president, and Evalyn Sunnerfield ns secretary and treasurer. During the month of September the new members were initiated into the C.H.C. at a party given in their honor. The Boys' and Girls’ Glee Clubs combined and produced the operetta, "Puints and Patches", February, 25, 1936. The story of the operetta is as follows: A group of young people r.re gathered in a woodland nook,studying art in order to be "finished", but greatly fearing art will "finish" them. Teng Selah and her devoted Amah visit the art clrs3, supposedly because of their friendship for Roberto. However, Amah has other plans-there is a old Chinese ring missing and she intends to find it. Teen and Neen, Gypsy girls, "living in yonder thicket", also visit the art class and Susan's pocketbook is missing. Susan suspects Neen, but is baffled when the nurse is returned by Teen. When the pocketbook is examined after being returned, the money is all there- but the ring- Susan declares that Teen has stolen her ring. Miss Perriwinkle, an eccentric village spinster, loses a gold piece. She does not suspect the gypsy, but the charming Teng Selah, and refuses to believe that Rastus knows more about the gold piece than he cares to tell. Teng Selah, of course, knows nothing of either the ring or gold piece and is baffled when two policemen come to arrest her. Teen, a natural artist, begs the Professor to teach her to paint, but the request will be granted only when she returns the ring, of which she knows nothing. However, the tangled thread:-, are finally straightened, and the ring goes back to ChJna, Teen i3 assured of studying her beloved art and Miss Perriwinkle gets Rastus' gold piece.
