Text from Pages 1 - 104 of the 1937 volume:

2“PottauMm” Published By The Senior Class Of 1937 Tekonsha Public School Erected in 1872HISTORY OF ANNUAL The Senior class of 1924 published the first annual of Tekonsha high school, which they called The Pottawam . This year-book was printed by a printer from out of town. There wasn’t any annual published for the following ten years. Then in 1934 when the Senior class put out a mimeographed publication which they called “The Echo”. The next year the Senior class put out another mimeographed annual which they called “The Boomerang”. In 1936 the Senior class decided to call their year-book the second edition of “The Pottowam”. They mimeographed their annual also. They printed it with the hope that the Senior classes to come would follow their example in using this name for the year-book. We, the Senior class of 1937 offer you an annual printed by our local printer. We, too, are using the name “The Pottawam” and hope the classes in the future will do the same. 4DEDICATION To the Faculty and Especially to Mr. Martinson Whose Efforts and Help Have Aided Us in Our Work , We Dedicate This Book. 5EDITOR’S NOTE The invention of writing and printing have made us master of all the cultures of the past which wc may enjoy at our leisure. We present this book as a minute part of our present day culture, hoping that it will ever serve to remind its owners of pleasant memories in Tekonsha High School. 6Seniors Laura Hill President Senior Class Vice-President Junior Class Treasurer Athletic Board '37 Athletic Board Member ’34 Glee Club ’34 - ’35 - ’36 - ’37 Senior Play Junior Play School Paper ’37 Basketball ’35 - 36 - ’37 Track ’36 - ’37 Annual Staff Sports Editor Robert Sizeland Basketball ’34 - ’35 - ’36 - ’37 Football ’34 - ’35 - ’36 - ’37 Baseball ’34 - ’35 - ’36 - ’37 Athletic Board President ’36 - ’37 Athletic Board ’34 - ’35 - ’36 - 37 School Paper ’35 - ’36 Secretary-Treas.

If they had not been full of enthusiasm they would never have weathered the storms of the four years. Our ideals were high and we fel we would accomplish as much and perhaps more than the other classes. Friendships were made that will last for many years and perhaps forever. At the first classmeeting there were twenty-six members that gathered to elect Maurice Hodges, president; Lucille McElhenie, vice-president; Robert Sizeland, secretary. The big event of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore party that was held on October 1 7. On April 24 we held another party at Jeanette Fousel’s. Jeanette Fousel was elected president of the sophomore class. Mac Long was elected vice-president; Lucille McElhenie, secretary; and Dorothy Letts, treasurer. Again our big social even : of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore party which was held October 2, 1934. In May, 1933 we enjoyed a theater party and were served refreshments at Lucille’s later. Russell Eldred was elected president in 1935; Laura Hill, vice-president; Jeanette Fousel, secretary; and Bud Randall, treasurer. Two great events of the first semester were the presentation of the Junior play “The Unexpected Guest’’ and the purchase of the Junior rings. Of course, the outstanding social event of the year was the funior-Senior Prom, held May 27 at the Coldwa er 14Organization of the Senior Class Country Club. When in the spring of the Junior year we paused to consider our achievements since entering school we felt we had traveled a long way toward our goal. Soon we would be going forth to pass our information and experiences on to others. Just one more year to listen and learn from our classmates and from our teachers. To make the most of the year was the aim of every Senior in the fall of 1936. During our four years in school we had assumed dignity, a quietness and a poise that is essential to the standard we hope to maintain. Laura Hill was elected president and proceeded to carry us through a very successful year. George Watson was elected vice-president; Lucille McElhenie, treasurer; and Russell Eldred, secretary. During the first semester we had our Senior pictures taken, which turned out exceptionally well. We also presented the play “Spooky Tavern”. The greater part of the last semester has been devoted to the Annual. Mac Long was editor-in-chief; assistant editor, Jeanette Eousel; class editor, Lucile McElhenie; art editor; Bud Randall; joke editor, George Watson; sports editor, Laura Hill; publishing editor, Marjorie Doolittle; and business manager, Russell Eldred. The class has given a good deal of time to candy sales and baked good sales to earn money for the skip day. Again the big social event of the season was the Junior-Senior Prom which was held on May 28, 1937 at the Coldwater Country Club. Last of all we have the enjoyment of Baccalaureate and Commencement. 15Community Fair The Community Fair was held two days; one day for rural schools, October 22 and October 23 for the farmer exhibits. On Thursday, October 22 in the evening the rural schools presented the pageant, “Events in the History of Tekonsha”. This was presented by the following rural schools: Indian school, Born; Indian scene, Russell; Red and White Man Meeting, Bush; Early Settlement, Sloan; Church scene, Bell; Singing school, Aurand; Making Soap, Flint; Spinning Cloth, Plains; Old Time Dance, Pritchard; Scotch Dances, Grub Oak; Irish Dances, Chipman; Norwegian Dances, French. The winners were given banners, Aurand placed first; French, second; and Bush, third. The judges were County Agent Helm, Mrs. Helm and Rev. Wheaton. The rural schools also had farm products on exhibit. The schools that placed were: first, Bush; second, Bell; third, Pritchard; and fourth, Aurand. The next day was Farmers’ Day. Farmers from surrounding communities brought in exhibits which were judged by Don Sheppard. The awards that were given to the winners were presented in the evening. These prizes were given by the business men of the community. The winners were announced by Joseph Scud-larick. A pig was raffled by George Watson in the evening. 16(Junior Owen) One bright and summer day At the beginning of our teens; God took one flower away, That helped make up our team. He was such a lovely lad. And we grieved to see him go; In our memories always will be had. The kindest thoughts for him we know. (Andea Gallup) A few years after this God made another call, He took another one of us To help fill up his hall. This lad entered our Freshman Class And stayed with us but a year. We see him through our memory glass And wish that he were near. By Marjorie Doolittle 17SKIP DAY Senior Skip Day was observed in such a big way that we should call it ship days. The Seniors rose early on Monday morning, May 24th and met in Tekonsha at seven o’clock. Acting as chaperones were Mr. and Mrs. Martinson, Mr. and Mrs. Long and Mrs. Hodges. Upon arriving in Chicago the group took rooms at the Great Northern Hotel. During the afternoon the boys attended the baseball game with Mr. Martinson and Mr. Long while the girls went shopping with Mrs. Martinson and Mrs. Long. No doubt the shopping turned out to be the more expensive. Monday evening and Tuesday morning were spent seeing the city’s points of interest. Tuesday afternoon was spent visiting museums and other interesting places on the way out of Chicago. Late in the evening the group arrived home after a great adventure. 18WHO’S WHO Prettiest Girl Handsomest Boy Wittiest Girl Wittiest Boy — — Donna Goff — — Maurice Hodges — — Helen Berk — — — Ray Shedd Tallest Boy — Tallest Girl — Best Girl Dancer Best Boy Dancer — — Bud Randall — — Carol Culver — — Betty Sizeland — — Lloyd Jenkins Girl with the Nicest Personality — Carol Culver Boy with the Nicest Personality — Mac Long Best Boy Student — — Howard Main Best Girl Student — Anita Belle Johnson Boy with the Best Sportsmanship — Ken Walbeck Girl with the Best Sportsmanship — Eunice Ball Popular Boy Popular Girl NeatestBoy Neatest Girl — - Polite Girl — Polite Boy — — Girl Using Best English Boy Using Best English Most Optimistic Person Most Pessimistic Person — — — Ray Shedd — — — Donna Goff — — — Bob Sizeland — — — Eunice Ball — — Jeanette Fousel — — — Boyd Blash field — Carol Culver — Jack Fousel — George Watson — Virginia Walters I 19WHO’S WHO Ten Years Hence After a lengthy talk with a well known Prophet we have gathered the information regarding our Seniors’ future.

Haven’t we plodded along for two whole years before reaching this enviable stage? Ray Shedd was elected class president and proceeded to lead us through an unusually successful year. Boyd Blashfield was elected vice-president, Virginia Walter, secretary ; and Hazel Green-awalt, treasurer. This is the first year girls have been in office. Always before the boys have controlled the class. November 1 5, 1936 was a marked day in our lives as we purchased our class rings, after many class-meetings to decide upon them. February 22, 1937 the Junior girls attended a tea given by Mrs. Canfield, Mrs. Martinson and Miss Ash. May 4, 1937 was also a very important day for us. The Junior play was presented to the public for enjoyment and criticism. Of course, the outstanding event of the year was the Junior-Senior Hop which was held May 28, 1 937 at Coldwater Country Club. Now as our Junior year draws to a close, we find ourselves looking forward to the activities of our Senior year, and to graduation, the ultimate goal of our high school career. 252628SOPHOMORE CLASS Back Row, left to right: Marlin McElhenie, Max- ine Moore, John Shedd, Donna Goff, Joseph Skud-larick and Dorothy Newland.

After re-assuming our customary air we proceeded to take time out for election of class officers for this all important year. Those chosen were: President—Anita Johnson Vice-President—John Shedd Secretary-Treasurer—Madge Leatherbury Our first social event of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore party, held October 2, 1936. All the faculty and freshmen were invited. There wes a good turnout, and we went home feeling that the Freshmen had been properly initiated into the high school. On February 12, 1937 we had a class party at Coldwater. Time was spent at the theater and at a skating rink. The members of the class later gathered for refreshments. Our class dues during the year were set aside to provide funds for our senior year. This money will help us finance the trip we will take during that year. Having a very successful year as Sophomores of Tekonsha high, we are looking forward to as happy a year as Juniors. 31ATHLETIC AWARDS It is the custom each year to present letters to players who have fullfilled certain requirements.

We vo ed in favor of an all high school party. As a class we have done nothing sensational to be in the limelight, and modesty forbids us to enumerate our virtues. Inspired by the high trust placed upon us, we have applied ourselves diligently to our tasks and have tried to conduct ourselves with dignity and credit. And now, at the close of the year we leave, rich in experience, with hearts full of loyalty and a desire to return next year to our new estate, Sopho mores. 37Seuenth Qrade and Eighth Qrade 397th and 8th GRADES We started as a student body of twenty-seven.

The music director for both the boy’s and girl’s is Miss Ash. 1 404-H SEWING CLUB The Sewing Club organized in October, 1 936 and the work was completed for the Achievement Day on April 3, 1937. Every one of the nine girls that started, finished, and seven of them received gold seals, which means that they did a very high standard of work. Over one thousand people attend the County Achievement Day each year. In the morning the members have the articles that they have made one exhibit. There were 275 girls with clothing projects and 271 boys with handicraft projects which makes a total of 326 boys and girls who completed their projects. Three contests were held; the wood identification contest, the health contest for boys and the health contest for girls. The high light of the day for the girls is the style revue followed by announcements. Out of the county six girls were picked to go to East Lansing for the second week in June.

The play went over very nicely. The cast of characters were as follows: Lon Hacker - Lucy Hacker Florabelle Wingate Joyce Wingate Ralph Channing Terry Tanner Ferony — Bedelia — Ghost Woman - Willie Worgle Blackie Simms Bud Randall Jeannette Fousel Dorothy Letts — Laura Hill Russel Eldred — Mac Long Maurice Hodges Marjorie Doolittle Lucille McElhenie George Watson Robert Sizeland At an old Tavern late at night, Lon Hacker and the Ghost Woman act out the killing of a man by axes. Florabelle and Joyce with Bedelia come to spend the night at the tavern. Then along comes two fraternity brothers, Ralph Channing and Harry Tanner, who are both in love with Joyce. They refuse to let Joyce and Florabelle stay all night but Joyce won’t be bossed by the boys. Later, along comes Freshman Willie who is made to spend the night there because he is being initiated into a fraternity. Bloody hatchets are found many times as also is opium. Lon and Lucy, Lon’s sister who tells scary ghost stories, are captured by Ferone and sent to prison. At the last part the Ghost Woman reveals herself as the true owner of Spooky Tavern and how she was forced by Lon and Lucy to “Rigg” herself up in such a costume. 70OPERETTA “THE WISHING WELL” At 8 o’clock Friday, March 12 about 300 people were on shore to see the landing of the operetta, ’ The Wishing Well,,. It had been on the way for 2 months. It had a successful landing and those who tugged along with their parts and overcame all disasters were the following: Lady Mary Donnell Sir Terrence O’Grady Noreen — Kathleen O’Mare Dan Tyron — Darby — Nora — Squire Baxby — Felix Murphy — Maureen McGibney Molly O’Tool — Fairy of the Well Marjorie Doolittle Kenneth Walbeck Eleanor Abel — Betty Smith — Jack Fousel — Leo Long Phyllis Shumway — Mac Long — Russell Eldred Madge Leatherbury Margaret Witthuhn — Betty Sizeland The special dances were as follows; Fairy dance by fourth and fifth grades. Beverly Hoenes Eleanor Clark Ana Williams Loraine Vincent Eleanor Wagnor Gloria Mae Williams The Light Fantastic Dance: Laura Hill Donna Goff Lucille McElhenie Hazel Greenawalt The Singing Chorus: The remaining glee club. 71Operetta (Continued) Miss Ash answered our S.O.S. and stood by the crew. Jeanette Fousel played the piano. The scory of the operetta centers around Lady Mary Donnell who is the last of the old, but impoverished family. She lives with a small niece, Noreen, and her four servants, at the ancestral home of the Donnells Falls Park Manor. Because of her financial reverses, Lady Mary has been forced to place a mortgage on her estate, and is having difficulty in meeting the payments. Such is the situation when Noreen makes friends with a gentleman vagabond whom she finds asleep in the garden. The stranger gives his name as Terrence O’More. He is in search of lodgings, and Lady Mary decides to accomodate him because of her need for money. Squire Baxby, a “supposed to be” wealthy man wishes to marry Lady Mary. He is in debt so much from gambling that he takes advantage of Lady Mary and takes a second mortgage on the land when she thinks she is paying him on the first. Terrence thinks there is something wrong with Squire Baxby so he sends to Dublin for money. In the meantime Lady Mary has invited friends and neighbors in to meet Terrence. Among them is Maureen McGibley from Dublin who recognizes Terrence as Sir Terrence O’Grady of Hitchcock Court, a scion of a very wealthy and noble family. She wanted Terrence herself for he was the “best catch’’ in Ireland. Terrence admits he is in love with Lady Mary and by that time he has the money to give Mary, thus they wed happily. Poor Maureen McGibley is out of luck. Noreen, the niece, adds a nice lot of humor to the story. 72JUNIOR PLAY “RED-HEADED STEPCHILD” Cast of Characters Mrs. Edith Russell — Mrs. Oliver Woodruff — Mrs. Emory Scott — Briggs — — Lucia Russell — Dudley Russell — Richard Russell — Elizabeth Russell (Bess) George Garrison — Ethel Ashley — Lucille Cristy — Flora Farnum — — Carol Culver — Addie Doolittle — Virginia Walters Boyd Blashfield — Della Dean — Ray Shedd — Max Putnam — — Eunice Ball — Howard Main — Phyliss Wagoner — Mildred Stevens Hazel Greenawalt The story takes place in the living room of Richard Russell’s fashionable Chicago home. The play opens with Mrs. Russell serving Mrs. Scott and Mrs. Woodruff tea. They talk about the impending arrival of Mrs. Russell’s step-daughter from the west. Later the same afternoon Mr. Russell brings his daughter to the Russell home. Mrs. Russell and Lucia are quite put out with the undignified manner in which Elizabeth behaves. However, they try not to act too shocked with her drastic acvions. An evening several months later the Russells give a party in honor of Bess. It is a grand affair, but Bess just seems to put her foot in her mouth every time she opens it and all the guests go away madder than wet hens. After Bess has the household in an uproar and everyone hating her she decides there is nothing 73Junior Play (Continued) left for her to do except to return to her ranch. Two days later, on her twenty-first birthday, Bess packs to go home. It turns out to be a very eventful and happy day for Bess. First she receives a check, which helps her father out of a financial debt, then George declares his love for her and wants to go to Montana with her, and last but not least the whole family declares their love for her and are very sorry to see her leave. 74SCHOOL CALENDAR FOR YEAR OF 1936 -1937 Sept. 7; School started.

Everything is cooked by electricity.” Mr. Bruce: “I wonder if you would mind giving this steak another shock?” High heels were invented by a short good-looking blonde who was continually being kissed on the forehead. Russell Elared: “Will you join me in a bowl of soup?” Hazel Greenawalt: “Are you sure there is room for both of us? Many an alley cat can look at a fur coat and say, “There goes papa.” Bud Randall: “I’m thinking of asking a girl to marry me. What do you think of the idea?” Ima B.: “I think it’s great if you ask me.” Mr. Martinson: “What is the formula for water?” Maurice Hodges: “H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O.” Mr. Martinson: “What do you mean?” Maurice Hodges: “Why, you said it was H to O.” Everything comes to him who orders hash. She was only a junk collector’s daughter and she sure looked it. Kenneth W. “This butter is so strong it could walk over to the coffee and say hello.” Howard M. “Yeh, and this coffee is so weak it couldn’t answer.” Motorist: “Is it very far to the next town?” Leo Long: “Well, it seems further’n it is but it isn’t.” 89JOKES First Soldier: “Sit down, you’re rocking the boat!” G. Washington: “Can’t” F. Soldier: “Why?” G. Washington: “My pants are too tight.” So they painted him standing up. Hodges says, “He likes his top coat very much, only he can’t get used to the wood across the shoulders and the hook keeps knocking his hat off.” Ray Shedd: “No girl ever made a fool of me.” Mr. Martinson: “Who was it then?” if a lad has a stepfather will that make him a stepladder? Marlin Me: “I hear that in Scotland the people are making a fuss because the country reduced the street car rates from 1 0 to 5 cents.” Lloyd Jenkins: “That so; how come?” Marlin Me: “They used to save 10 cents and now they only save 5.” “Up and atom,” cried the molecule. Judge: “Well, have you anything to say for yourself?” Bud Randall: “Yes, I wish I were where there were no traffic cops.” Judge: “Granted, Ten years in the Hooscow.” “I’m sorry,” said the dentist, “but you cannot have an appointment this afternoon. I have eighteen cavities to fill,” And he picked up his golf-ball bag and went out. Mr. Canfield: “I’m sorry, but I can’t pay the installment this week.” Storekeeper: “There’s no trusting you. You said that the last time and the time before.” Mr. Canfield: “Well, I kept my word, didn’t I?” 90uAcluertisin We Wish To Thank The Advertisers For Their Support In Making This Annual Possible. 91WE HAVE Everything You Need in the Hardware Line at the Right Prices E.H.
