Published By The Senior Class Of 1938 3DEDICATION To Mr. C. R. Canfield who was our class advisor for three and a half years, the class of nineteen hundred thirty eight dedicate this fourth edition of the “Pottawam”. 4POTTAWAM History of the Annual Let us as a senior class and the publisher of the annual for nineteen hundred thirty eight look back for fourteen years to see what has happened in the history of the annual. The “Pottawam” was the first annual published in Tekonsha High School. This annual was published in nineteen hundred twenty four and was the only one published until nineteen hundred thirty four when the senior class released the “Echo”. In nineteen hundred thirty five the seniors published the yearbook called the “Boomerang”. The seniors of nineteen hundred thirty six and nineteen hundred thirty seven called their annual the “Potta-wam" after the one in nineteen hundred twenty four. We, the Seniors of nineteen hundred thirty eight at the request of the class of nineteen hundred thirty seven have decided to call our annual the “Pottawam”. The name “Pottawam” is a contraction from Potawatomi, an Indian tribe belonging to the Algonquin family. The name means “fire makers”. The Potawatomis were a very large tribe which had possession of Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana. In this region they had about fifty villages. Tekonsha was one of these. It was named after their chief Tekonquasha. The chiefs had little power of their own but they usually carried out the will of the tribe. For communication the Indians used the sign language and theiir grammer was very complicated. Horses and canoes were used for transportation and the St. Joe river was one of the Potawatomi highways. War was constantly waged among the Indians before the arrival of the white man. But after the white man came they found it was impossible to keep them from taking their homes and land. ___________ 5 _________Since this year is the last that the Seniors of nineteen hundred thirty eight will spend in Tekon-sha High School, we wished to leave behind us something that we could keep as a momento of our high school days as well as something that would be of interest to the remainder of the students. For the last three years, the graduating class has published an annual. It has been the answer to the problem of creating a remembrance and at the same time a thing of interest, so the Seniors of nineteen hundred thirty eight decided to carry on the tradition. This book is the product of our efforts and we hope you will enjoy it. 6POTTAWAM Board of Education J. Earle Shedd...... George W. Davis . C. A. Anderson O. J. Fish Ray Green President . . .

Wissman Agriculture, Civics llPOTTAWAM A Day With The Faculty The faculty of our school is probably the busiest group that we have. A tour through the different classes will give us the best conception of what is taking place nearly every day. First on the program is bookkeeping class. We find Mrs. Warwick seating everyone where she thinks they will work the best; in other words, work more and talk less. Next we watch Mr. Martinson’s physics class at work. Class meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Every day except Friday, the s’udents work in the laboratory. Mr. Martinson believes in surprise tests. The answers that are given are proof of the agony of the class. Then the lecture begins. (Mr. Martinson is very expert at lecturing). Following the schedule we find ourselves in speech class under the supervision of Miss Ash. During the first period in the afternoon some of the seniors, along with some juniors, go to English literature class. You will be apt to find Mr. Canfield debating with Virginia Walter or Carol Culver about the pronunciation of a word. If you go to economics class, taught by Miss Ash, you will hear the seniors give reports on consumer buying. They learn how to purchase in order to get the most for their money. Miss Ash is always telling Paul Senker to wake up. The last period of the day finds the farmer boys in Mr. Wissman’s animal husbandry class. If they start acting up, Mr. Wissman appeals to their gentlemanly instincts. (Note: They generally act more like gentlemen when he finishes his little lecture). In spite of all the trials and tribulations we have undergone in our four years of high school, we, the seniors, think that our faculty is one of the grandest that any school could have. We certainly are going to miss them when we leave, but “Adios”. ___ 12 .SENIORS 13 14Carol Culver Better known as “Cookie” Virginia Walter Ding Dong: Her Heart rings true.

After four years we have reached the height of our high school career and soon we are to launch our ships upon a new ocean of life. To come of us this will be a great task but to others it will only be the beginning of a very colorful career in our own respective fields. During the past three years we have built many dreams of our senior year. Some of them have come true while others have turned out to be just air castles. When we leave this building for the last time as students of Tekonsha High School we will take with us many memories of our school days. No one will ever be able to take those from us. Since we began as a class of twenty seven in nineteen hundred thirty-four some of our group have dropped out but others have taken their places. That year Fred Millard was elected president, Ray Shedd, vice president and Howard Main, secretary and treasurer. We were formally initiated into the school as brechmen at a banquet given in our honor by the Sophomore class. This proved to be a very entertaining affair. As sophomores our number had decreased until only twenty four remained. Lloyd Jenkins acted as our president during the sophomore year. John Denbrock was elected vice-president and Harold Vincent was elected secretary and treasurer. Later, after Harold left school, Della Dean took over his duties. The main social event of our sophomore year was the Freshman-Sophomore party which we paid tribute to the Freshmen as it had been paid to us the year before. When we reached our Junior year we were just one step from our goal. We all worked hard in order that we could reach the top. Ray Shedd prov-__________, 21 ___________POTTAWAM ed to be a very good president and guided us through our many disputes. The other officers were Boyd Blashfield, vice-president, Virginia Walter, secretary, and Hazel Greenawalt treasurer. The first big event of that year was the purchase of our Junior rings. We purchased these on November fifteenth, nineteen thirty-six. We were all well satisfied with them when they arrived. The Junior Play, “The Red'Headed Stepchild,” was the second big event. We all worked hard to put on a good performance and when it was all over we felt that we had done so. The third great event of the year and the first social affair was the Junior and Senior Prom. This was held May twenty-eighth, at the Lyon Lake Country Club. The Juniors gave a banquet in honor of the Seniors who were graduating. Dancing was the main entertainment of the evening. And now comes the most colorful year of all— our Senior year. At the first class meeting Carol Culver was elected president, Virginia Walter was chosen vice-president and Howard Main, secretary and treasurer. This year has been completely filled with important events. On October sixth, our Senior pictures were taken. Everyone was well pleased with the results. Our Senior Play, “Crashing Society” proved to be a huge success. This was presented on October twenty-ninth. We netted about thirty-five dollars. This was to be used for our Skip Day. We had a class meeting March sixteenth, at which we decided our class colors, motto and flower as follows; royal blue and gold as our class colors, yellow rose as our class flower and “He conquers who endures” as our class motto. At the same meeting we picked out our diplomas. They are royal blue smooth leather trimmed in gold. We all will be pleased when we receive them on our graduation night. 22JUNIORS 23Back Row: Elwin Williams; Marlir.

This was to be one of the outstanding years of our whole high school career. It was filled with plans and all sorts of ideals about rings, play and proms. Is it any more than natural that we should think we were about the best class of all? Certainly we want to be considered capable of taking on the duties of seniors next year. We began our years activities by electing officers. They are as follows: President, Marlin McElhenie; vice-president, Madge Leatherbury; secretary and treasurer, Anita Belle Johnson. These people have served our class well during the past _____________________ 25 ___________year. Miss Ash has been our class adviser all through high school. We had one of our greatest thrills on October eight. It was on this eventful day that we purchased our class rings. We were certainly well pleased with them when they arrived. Our next great event was the Junior Play. It was “Bashful Bobby” and was presented on April twenty-ninth. Everyone who attended gave favorable reports as to its success and we certainly enjoyed presenting it. At last came the most important event of the year and also the greatest thrill. This was when everyone donned their best formals and suits for the annual Junior and Senior Prom. This was held at Lyon Lake Country Club on May 27th. The Seniors were the guests of honor at the banquet. Later our girl friends and boy friends were invited in for an evening of dancing and entertainment. This was the most outstanding social event of the year and the one that we will remember above all others. Now that our Junior Year is nearly over we are looking forward to our Senior year and graduation. 26POTTAWAW SOPHOMORES 2728 Back Row: Ernest Waffle; Robert Neilson; Rickard Olney; Starr Walbeck; Leo Long; Lester Senkar.

Sophomore Class History On September seventh, nineteen thirty-seven a class of seventeen light hearted sophomores troop-back to school. Of course we felt much older and wiser than we had the previous year and naturally we wanted to give the incoming class all the possible advise that we could. Soon after we had become accustomed to our new routine we had a class meeting at which we elected our officers for the year. Eliza Hutchins was elected president; Phyllis Shumway, vice-president; Jean Biashfield, secretary and treasurer. Mr. Bruce was our class adviser. The only social event of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore party. This was held October1 M POTTftWANl eighth at the gymnasium. The entire Freshman Class was invited as well as the faculty. At the High School Christmas program we bade Mr. Bruce farewell. Immediately after Christmas vacation he took up his new duties at Carson City. Since then Mr. Wissman has been our adviser. During the year each class has given an assembly program. We presented ours on April twenty-seventh. Our class is the smallest in school. However, we hope to have more to take the places of those who have dropped out during the past two years. We wish to the class who takes our place next year the greatest success, and hope that they may feel as happy in entering school next year as Sophomores as we do in entering our duties as Juniors. 30FRESHMEN 3132Back Row: Allen King; Virgil Casey; George Rogers; Richard Eslow; Russell Hornbeck; DonalJ Rogers; I».chard Bond.

Freshman Class History On the first day of school twenty five brave freshmen entered high school for the first time. Of course our hearts were beating fast and our knees knocking but we wouldn’t admit it to anyone. Thirteen of us had been in the local eighth grade the previous year and the others came in from surrounding schools. After we had become acquainted with each other we held our first class meeting of the year. Richard Eslow was elected president; Donald Rogers, vice-president; Dorothy Martinson, secretary and Mildred Belote, treasurer. Mrs. Warwick acted as our class advisor. On October eighth the Freshman class became 33POTIMM full fledged High school s uden s. We were duly initiated at the banquet prepared for us by the Saphinore class. After dinner the mystic ceremonies began and by the time we were ready to go home we felt that we could cope with almost anything that we might encounter in our high school days. The Freshman Class have proved to be a great help in contributing to the honor of our school. We h ve done a great deal towar s the suoport of our athle’ic Yearns. Of course we do not claim all of the honor for we know that this would be unfair to the other classes but we have furnished a great deal of raw material from which to build our teams. Some of the boys who have helped are Richard Eslow, George and Donald Rogers, George Sholes, James Eck and Donald Shedd. We are also well represented in o her organizations. All of the girls are in the Glee Club, eleven of us are in the Chorus, six on the school paper staff and five are in 4-H clubs. We feel that our group has a great deal of school spirit. Now thet our freshman year is drawing to a close we are all looking eagerly forward to our sophmore year and we will do our best to help the incoming freshman class over some of the pit-falls that we have stumbled into this year. 34SEVENTH and EIGHTH GRADES sam 36SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADES Back Row: Mr. Canfield; Ernest Foster; Floyd Henry; Jef fe rson Feiler; James Shaffer; David Culver; Laverl Casey; Robert VanOrman; Lawrence Feiler; Dick Henry; John Norton.

Seventh and Eighth Grade History and Activities This year the seventh and eighth grade classes are larger than they usually are. There are sixteen i in the eighth grade and seventeen in the seventh. After about two weeks of school we held our first class meeting and elected officers for the year. Daryl Leatherbury was elected president; Anna 37Hawkins, vice-president; Joe Millard, secretary and Beverley Downey, treasurer. Mr. CanfieM is our class advisor. The seventh and eighth grades have very few activities and because of this we occupy a very small corner of this annual. However, we all are looking forward to our coming high school days and hope that we can enjoy them ai much as our predecessors. 383940FOTTIMI STUDENT COUNCIL Back Row: Josrph Skudlarick; Daryl Lea K rbury; John Den- brock; Howard Main; Rav Shedd; Leo Lorg; Lloyd Jenkins.

New Student Government This year a new form of student government was introduced into our school system. This is a council form of government. The nurpose of the school council is to supervise and govern the students. The officers are elected in just the same manner that our government officials are elected. A nominating committee is appointed and nominates candidates for the offices. Tf ey are elected by popular ballot by the hinh school and the seventh and eighth grades. The officers who were elected are Howard Main, president; Ray Shedd, vice-nresident; Phyllis Shumway, secretary and Carol Culver, treasurer. After Carol resigned, Virginia Walter took over her duties as treasurer. The Council itself is made up of two members of each class who ar"' elected by majority vote. The school council has proved to be a very satisfactory organization this year and we hope that it will work out as successfully next year. _______________________ 41 —Back F.ow: J tc n Bla hfield; Domn off; Eleanor Abel; Betty Smith; Eleanor Culver; Maxine Moore; Madge Leatherbury; Eunice Ball; Anita Belle Johnson; Virginia Hayne.

Glee Club and Chorus The Glee Clubs have for many years taken a.i active part in school life. Besides presenting an opere'ta each year they sing at commencement exercises and at various other functions. The girls from the C.H.C. Club meet each Tuesday. Their colors are blue and white. The officers are Virginia Walter, president; Madge Leatherbury, vice-president; Mildred Stevens, treasurer; Hazel Greenawalt, secretary. In that both Mildred and Hazel left school, Della Dean was appointed treasurer and Eleanor Abel was appointed secretary. Each year the new members are given a banquet by the old members and are initiated. The rest of the evening is diverted to entertainment.POTTAW M GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Back Row: J:an Blashfield; Donna Goff; Eisanor Abel; Eleanor Culver; Gail Doolittle; Maxine Moore; Madge Laatherbury; Eunice Ball.

However in 1938 the boys and girls combined to form a new organization, the chorus. We thus have two singing clubs, the girls glee club and the chorus, the latter meeting each Wednesday. The clubs are directed by Miss Ash. Besides contributing to the enjoyment of the community the glee club has purchased two se’.s of scenery and a new stage. This year the most important event for both clubs was the operetta, “Hollywood Bound.” 43Back Row: Jack Fousel; Elwin Williams; Richard Eslow; Richard Kir. rj.

This year the orchestra was able to buy two new sets of music. As yet the group has not ad an ooportunity to make a public appearance to prove its skill, but they are hoping that someone will ask them to play next year. Elearor Culver, saxophone; Elwin Williams, xylorimba and Richard Eslow, cornet, are this 'ear’s new members. The orchestra deserves credit -or helping us with our new high school song. The words were written by Carol Culver and were put to the tune of an orchestration. The present members are Maxine Moore, {dea-nor Abel and Jack Fousel, violin; Eleanor Culver, saxophone; Richard Eslow, cornet; Richard King, clarinet; Elwin Williams, xylorimba; and Phyllis Shumway, piano. Miss Ash is the director. 44COY SCOUTS Back Row: Kenneth Culvar; David C-ilv;r; Jam i Schafer; Charles Luby; Robert VanU man; Lawr:n;: Ffiler.

The Boy Scouts of Tekonsha, Troop 48, started the school year with a bang. Under the leadership of William Burrows the boys have passed many of their tests. The meetings have taken place every Monday evening at the school house. To keep the fellows interested, plans were carried out to have different games before and after their meetings. The scouts have taken many interesting trips during the past year. They went to the Scout building at Battle Creek to Court of Honor and have had access to the swimming pool in that build ing. They cdso were invited to attend a special Court of Honor at the Kellogg Auditorium where Fdgar Guest, Michigan’s own poet, gave a talk. The big event of the year occured when the scouts attended the Michigan State-Wayne University foo'ball game. At one Court of Honor the Tekonsha boys received the silver cup for having the greatest number passing the second class tests of any group. 45SCHOOL PAPER Back Row: Anita Belle Johnson; Geo.ge Rogers; Paul Senker; Mr Wiseman; Ken Walbeck; Leo Long; Macige Leatherbury.

"Echo" Activities Each year it is customary for the high school to have a school paper which is printed each week in the local newspaper. Lest year we decided to name our paper the School Echo. The same name was retained this year. The aim of the school paper as an organization is to report the events and activities of the school. Besides doing this each reporter gains a ccr'ain amount of knowledge as to how a larger newspaper is run. He also learns the correct way to write up the stories he is reporting. Each week the editor and assistant editor assign a topic to each reporter who gathers the material 4bFOTTAWAM and writes the story within a limited time. At the beginning cf the second semrs er lest year edi ors were elected. Kenneth Walbeck was elected editor; Carol Culver, associate eliter and Madge Leatherbury and Anita Belle Johnson, assistant editors. This year it was decided that just two officers were necessary and Anita Belle Johnson was elected editor and Dorothy Martinson, assistant editor. Mr Bruce acted as adviser for the first semester. Later Mr. Wissman took over his duties. There are eleven members on the Echo staff and with this force we hope to improve the school paper until it becomes indispensable to the com munity and to the school. ; 47SEWING CLUB Back Row: Mary Thurston; iJhyl!is Wacorer; H’len Bsrk; Eleanor Culver; Gpal Auar; Velma D;an; Shirl.y Klingaman.

At this meeting the following officers were elected: president, Anita Belle Johnson; vice-president, Eleanor Abel; secretary, Dorothy Martinson; treasurer, Ruth Wagoner. The club this year is much larger than last year there being twenty four girls enrolled. Eight of these are first year girls; two second year; seven, third year; one fourth year; three, fifth year; and one sixth year. Our local achievement day was held Merch eighteenth at the gymnasium where the clothing was exhibit and the girls to represent the club in the style review at County Achievement Day were chosen. Those girls were Anna Hawkins, Eleanor Abel, Dorothy Martinson, Mildred B:lote, Ani a Belle Johnson and Eleanor Culver. The aim of the club is to teach the girls the best way and the most economical way of sewing. They _ - 48 ________________POTTAWflM learn by doing the work themselves, usually by the trial and error method. Their pledge is known by thousands of 4-H members throughout the United States. It is: I pledge my head to clearer thinking My heart to greater loyalty My hands to greater service My health to better living For my club, my community and my country. The requirements for each year s work are somewhat different and change a little from year to year. The first, second and third year girls make articles of clothing. The fourth year girls make something for their room. The fifth year girls may take either an advanced project in a girl s room or can make a complete outfit. A girl may take as many years as she wishes. Handicraft Club On November 12, 1937 a group of boys met with Mr. Martinson for the purpose of organizing a 4-H Handicraft Club. At that meeting Elwin Williams was elected president ; Marlin McElhenie, vice-president and Jack Fousel, secretary and treasurer. The requirements for each year vary but each boy has to make a certain number of articles and at the end of the year he must write a story of his achievements. The 4-H aim is to make the best better. Our local achievement day was held on March 18 at the gymnasium. On March 31, we attended the County Achievement Day at Marshall. There our club was honored since Jack Fousel was cho sen to represent the county at Club Week. Marlin McElhenie and Leo Long were chosen on the honor roll for their work on an electrical project and John Hawkins for his handicraft exhibit. Of the twelve boys that finished, seven received gold stars for their superior workmanship. _______________________ 49 ____________POTTAWAM A View Or Chicago Through The Eyes Of Michigan’s Style Queen On Saturday, November 27, 1937 a very excited group of Michigan boys and girls left for Chicago. There were fifty-five of us and we had much fun getting acquainted on the train. When we reached Chicago the girls went to the Harrison Hotel. The next day, which was Sunday, the Michigan delegation lunched at the Y.M.C.A. Hotel where the Michigan boys were staying and then we met the whole group at the Auditorium Hotel and left on special chartered busses for a forty-five mile tour around Chicago. That evening we all went to Orchestra Hall for the Sunday evening Service. On Monday everyone, except those in special contests, went to the livestock yards. I was in the style review so I spent ad that day practicing for it. Since I was in the style review I got to know girl 3 from all over the United States because there w rc girls there representing all but seven of the states. That evening we met the rest of the delegation at Wilson Co. where we had a banquet and a pro gram. From there we went to the livestock yards. There we had a parade in the arena. I was lucky enough to get to ride along with some other style review girls on the wagon which led the parade. This wagon was drawn by six beautiful Belgian horses. Behind us followed the rest of the sixteen hundred boys and girls followed by their S ate delegations. We went to the center of the arena and the rest followed and formed circles around u 3 until the hugh arena was completely filled. Then the last ones in, who were on the outside, led the way out un’il only we on the wagon remained. Then we got a thrill when the horses did tricks. On Tuesday the girls went through the Planetarium and the Fields Museum. That night we hnd our big banquet in the Grand Ballroom of the Sherman Hotel. 50POTTAWANI The style review was enjoyed by everyone inclir ding the girls themselves. In the review were also eight boys who helped the girls up and down the steps. At the end of the review Miss Jane Alden of the Chicago Mail Order presented the winners with watches. She presented the other girls with blue, red and white ribbons. On Thursday the girls were the guests of the Chicago Mail Order House for breakfast and after breakfast they put on a style review for us. One of the professional models failed to appear so a 4-H girl took her place. She did such a good job that we couldn’t tell her from the professionals. After that, eight of the style review girls (I was one of them) bed their pictures taken for the Country Home Magazine. After we left there we went to the Stevens Hotel where we were guests of Sears Roebuck Co. for lunch and a program. That night we had a dance in the Auditorium Hotel. This was the last chance we had to see the boys and girls from other States so we bid them goodbye. Friday morning we left for home a tired but happy bunch with our bags filled with souvenirs and our hearts filled with new friends. Eleanor Abel An Electrification Contest Winner Sees Chicago Even though I had been to Club Congress once before it was still exciting and lots of fun to see Chicago again. The two big events of the week were the banquet given in the Grand Ballroom of the Stevens Hotel and the Farewell party in the Auditorium Hotel. The banquet was a very grand affair indeed. There was a six course dinner and plenty of silver. (I ended up with several spoons and knives left over.) The winners of the national contests were given their awards at this banquet. The happiest 51POTTAIM moment of the whole week came when I was presented wi h my three hundred dollar scholarship. To me the most interes ing part of the Club Congress was the people there. Nearly every State was npreoen'ed and Canada as well as Hawaii sent delegates. The girl from Hawaii had a very interesting personality. Every one of those two thousand boys and girls were winners in some project. Each State had some way to identify its group. For example, Texas wore their cowboy hats, Nebraska their red and white mittens with two thumbs. (They explained they were from the cornhusking State and the two thumbs made it possible to reverse the mittens when they were worn out on one sid .) Michigan wore large round badges. In spite of the fact we we e all Americans we discovered we talked differently and sometimes we could sca elv understand each other. The Westinghouse winners had another banquet on Wednesday evening. Again we had a delicious meal with lofs of silver. (This time I came out right. Reellv!) Af;er the dinner we were given souvenirs—A Westinghouse electric iron and a white sport sweater with a Westinghouse emblem. Of all the experiences I had while in Chicago I believe talking ever the radio was the most thrilling. The Wes inghouse scholarship winners rnd other winners went to the Livestock Show Arena where the National Farm and Home Hour wr s being broadcast. We lined up and in our turn went on the glass enclosed stage and talked through the “mike”. I was at the end of the line pod bv the time mv turn came my knees were quaking quite badly. It was pretty exciting to think -'-our vcica could he h ard all over the country and tha" die folks back home were listening. When we come back after such a trip you have a feeling you have really met Young America. Flowever, it mak s you a little sad to have to say r odbv 0 your new friends with which vou ha- e bed such a grand time all week.

Debate This is the first year since 1 932 that our school 1 as had a debating team. In spite of the fact that everyone was preciy "green” in this activi y we managed to get in the s.ate eliminations. At our first meeting six people came to find out what it was all about. Our coach, Mr. Bruce explained that the question to be debated was: “Resolved; Unicameral form of state legislature should be adopted by the several states.” We were rn her at a loss as to what this meant but af .er we found out that the big technical word “unicameral” simply meant “one house” we began to see that it did make sense and might even be fun. Our first practice debate (just among ourselves) had lots of pep and Dower if nothing more. Mr. Bruce took the whole team to Ann Arbor where w had a chance to hear a real debate between Michigan State College and the Universi y of Michigan. We found out that we knew very little about debating and our state legislature but by furiouslv taking notes we brought home some pretty good pointers. 53POTTAWAM The lineup for our first debate with Bellevue was: Eleanor Abel, Jack Fousel and Leo Long. Like their football team they defeated us. The next contest was fought on home grounds with Pittsford. A large crowd turned out to hear _ . _ , it. This gave us encouragement to Former Ag. Teacher and , . , , . , Debate Coach think that the community an 1 our school were really interested in what we were doing. During the debate the team fired up and pu. across some very fine arguments. We all nervously gulped water to calm down our excitement as the judge prepared to give his decision. When it came i was in our favor. Parma was the next school on our schedule. This time we had to change our case completely for we had been debating the negative side of the question but now we were to debate on the affirmative side. The debate with Parma was quite a feminine affair, our team being Eleanor Abel, Betty Smith and Eunice Ball. As it happened Parma’s team was all girls too. We were vistorious in this contest. Two wins! This really called for a celebration so wc rang the school bell (and how). Our score was one loss and two victories. If we could only win the next with Montgomery we could get into the state elimination contest and we would also win a plaque for our school. Montgomery came, debated and was conquered. However in the meantime our coach, Mr. Bruce, left for Carson City. This left us without a coach but Mrs. C.K. Martinson came to our rescue. Our hopes were high as we went into preparation for the first round of the state eliminations but dropped somewhat when Mrs. Martinson was taken ill. Mr. Martinson gallantly came to our aid and helped us to carry on. However, Bronson captured the dicision in the last debate of the season. _____________ 54 _____________Back Row: Ernest Waffle; Marlin McElhen’e; Jack Fousel; Boyd Blashfield; Richard Olney; Joseph Skudlarick.

It includes the forty eight states of the United States and the territories of Hawaii and Puerto Rico. In the 3500 local chapters there are about 82,000 members. The purposes of the Future Farmers are as follows: to develop competent, aggressive, rural and agricultural leadership; to strengthen the confidence of the farm boy in himself and his work; to create and nurture a love for country life; to create more interest in the intelligent choice of farming occupations; to improve the rural home and its surroundings ; to encourage co-operative effort among students of vocational agriculture; to promote thrift among students of vocational agriculture; to improve scholarship; to supplement regular vocational instruction; and to advance the caus-i of vocational education in agriculture in the public schools. This yaer the F.F.A. chapter in Tekonsha has 55Ifj l FOTTAWAM made a lot of progress along these lines. The district F.F.A. was formed and Tekonsha joined. The purpose of the district chapter is to get the F.F.A. members of one section together so that they will know each other better and work together more efficiently in their vocational endeavors. As the chapter has done in previous years, we entered the F.F.A. judging contest at the Calhoun County Fair. The team of three boys consisted of Carrcll Reese, “Joe” Skudlarick, and Jack Fousel. The team which was under the supervision of Mr. Fruce hadn’t had much training but they placed fifth. At the end of the first semester we changed advisers. Mr. Wissman took the position of vocational agriculture instructor and F.F.A. adviser. A few weeks after the change in advisers we three prospects who were eligible to the Future Farmer degree and so they were duly initiated. These boys were Earnest Waffle, Richard King and Richard Olney. The evenmr of April 1 4, a speech contest was held here in Tekonsha. The purpose of this contest was to determine who was to represent this district in the state contest at Lansing during Junior Farmers week. Three of the chapters in the district were represented. The representative from Kellogg school was John Verseput, who gave his soeech on the vocational projects that he h d carded. The other two speakers were James Egdell from Laksview and Richard Evans from Marshall. John Verseput was declared winner of the contest and so became eligible to compete in the state contest. 5658FOOTBALL Back Row: Mr. Canfield; Richard Bond; John Hawkins; Bob Bowling; Don Schofield; Paul Senker; Richard EsloW; Roy Potter.

Football The call for football boys given by Coach Can-field the first week of school found seventeen boys responding. Although Dame Fortune did not follow the boys during the season, it doesn’t mean that the boys didn’t put up a good fight. The team opened its schedule with White Pigeon here on October 8. The boys played hard and it looked as though they would win. They carried the ball to White Pigeon’s eight foot line but fai’ed to put it over. White Pigeon then scored a touchdown and the game ended 6 to 0 in their favor. The next game was played on October 1 3 with Tekonsha facing those husky lads from Bellevue a : Abel Fi“ld. The boys looked pretty bad in this game and Bellevue gave us our first good licking to the tune of 34 to 0. Waiting for a good chance to break our bad luck streak we met Jonesville here on October 20 but Old Man Defeat was still haunting us and we _______________________ 59 ____________POTTAWAM bowed to those Jonesville boys 57 to 0. Lack of experienced men is responsible for such scores as this. Our team then took the road and we traveled to Mendon on November 5. We were greatly in hope that this game would bring a different story to our ears because Mendon was nearly as inexp r ienced rn we were. But we were unable to turn the score around and those Mendonites defeated us by the szore of 6 to 0. We then traveled east to Homer, our old rivnL for many years. The teams were evenly matched in size but Homer was more experienced and we came home while the Hom°r High School bell was ringing, playing the tune 25 to 0. November 4 found the team playing their last game of the season at Union CLy. This was the last chance for the bovs to brmg home the bacon, but it was the same old story. The team came close to scoring but failed to do so and the fopgy curtain came d v n as the game ended 33 to 0 in favor of Union City. The seniors who played their last game of football for dear old T.H.S. are: Lloyd Jenkins, Ray Shedd, Harold Fox, Paul Senker and Roy Potter.

This being the first game of the season it did not show either the first team boys or the girls in their best form. Both the boy s and girl s team games were close but not close enough. The boy’s game ended 17 to 22 in favor of Sherwood, and the girl’s game, 1 0 to 17 in favor of our opponents. On Dec. 21 we traveled to Homer. We thought perhaps we could get revenge after the way Homer had treated us in football but both the first and second boy’s tiams were defeated by the respective scores of 38 to 9 and 23 to 7. On January 7, the team rambled to Union City where we were scheduled to play a first team boys game only. This game turned out better for Tekon-sha than we expected it to. Because of injuries and ineligibility, four of our boys were out of the line up. Howard Main was high point man with nine points and Ray Shedd followed close behind with five. The games ended with the score 1 8 to 3 1 in favor of Union City. On January 1 1 the second team boys and girls went to Bronson. Everyone was very surprised at the outcome of this game because Bronson has always had such fast teams. The games were very wild but we won both contests. The second team score was 1 4 to 12 and the girls score, 18 to 14. Eunice Ball garnered twelve points and Carol Culver six. The teams play at home for a change, and Jones-ville visited us on January 21. These games were hard fought battles but the first team was not able to come through although the second team did. The score of the firs1' team game was 1 6 to 24 in favor of Jonesville while the second team won 1 3 to 7.POTTAtfAM BOYS’ BASKETBALL Back Row: Mr. Canfield; Lloyd Jenk'ns; Howard Ma»n; Don Rogers; Paul Senker; Leo Long; George Rogers; Ray SHedd.

Bronson than came to Tekonsha on January 25 and we thought we were in for another victory from them. Both were good teams but we did not repeat as we did when we went to Bronson. The second team boys were defeated 1 4 to 20 while the girls lest 3 to 18. Next we met Athens for the first time this season. The first and second boy’s teams played and we split the victories. The first team won 25 to 16 but tiie second team was defeated 12 to 17. Both games were close and were enjoyed by all who witnessed them. On February first Union City came to Tekonsha with their first and second team boys. The first team game was very close and we should have defca cd them tut again the boys failed to come through and they were defeated by a score of 23 to 25. The second team also lost 1 6 to 26. 62 Eack Row: El iro- Culv"-: Smith; Virginia Walter; Carol Culve -; Helen Berk; Eloise Randall.

Tekonsha looked pretty bad again in these games and it looked for a while as if they wouldn’t be much improvement over the previous games with Homer. Both teams were beaten, the first team by a score of 29 to 58 and the second team 8 to 13. Our girl’s team and the first team boys made the trip to Athens on February 1 1 where we were in great hopes of winning a game. The girls played a good game but were defeated by a score of 1 0 to 22 while the boys were on short end of a 1 3 to 24 score. February 18th was the last schedule game of the season and it was with Ben Murrey’s Sherwood lads and also the Sherwood girls. Both of our teams wanted to defeat Sherwood very much and make it even but it was the same story. The boys lost by a 63score of 9 to 20 and the girls were defeated 1 3 to 19. After a bad season we looked forward to a break when we entered the tournament at Albion. Luck stared us in the face on the start when Coach Can-field drew a bye for the first night. We were to play the winner of the Tomkins Center-Horton game on the second night at the tournament. This game was very exciting and we thought we had the game in the bag because Horton didn’t have a very good team this year. However this game closed the season as Horton defeated us 1 4 to 23.

Baseball When the call for the boys of the diamond was given by Coach Canfield, twenty-eight boys came running forth; fielders, catchers, would-be hitters and one experienced pitcher. The boys ranged from four feet to over six feet in height. They were as follows: Potter hurled the first game of the season when we met Mendon here. Tekonsha was ahead in the second inning but went behind until the seventh when they rallied to defeat Mendon six to five. The score was close at a.l limes but the boys were not beaten. The boys played exceptionally good ball for the first game of the season. George Rogers caught his first game and did a fine job. Denbrock was outstanding in the field, taking care not only of center but part of left and right fields. The rest of the team also played good ball and their timely hits came when needed. . _____________ 65 _________________After winning the first game the boys then traveled to Sherwood on April 22 with the hopes of winning their second start. Ernest Waffle started on the mound for the locals and performed very creditably while he was in there; but bad breaks and bad errors worked against him. He was also touched for some costly hits. Don Rogers replaced Waffle on the mound in the second inning. His pitching was a little wild at first but he finally settled down and pitched good ball the rest of the game. The game ended 5 to 1 1 for Sherwood. On Tuesday, April 26 Tekonsha met Union City on the local diamond. Potter started on the mound and for six innings did a good job. The first inning was a jinx as Union City scored six runs on errors of both commission and omission. This allowed the visitors to win easily by the score of 1 0 to 4. Potter allowed only nine hits and struck out seven men. In the seventh Eslow replaced Potter on the mound and in spite of a lack of experience he did a fine job and should make a good pitcher for Tekonsha during the next few years. Due to the fact that the annual is going to pres3 much earlier than last year we will not be able to write up the remainder of the baseball games.

From all the reports that we heard it was considered a success by everyone. The entire play was filled with one hilarious scene after another. The scene of the play was in the new home of Elsie and Adam Dunnigan, in New York City. Adam s uncle had died and left him the home and two million ollars. So after leaving the old farm They came to New York with their three children, George, Marguerite, and Christable. Here Elsie and Christable are very anxious to "Crash Into Society" while the remainder of the family want to return to their home in Jerkwater. Elsie attempts to teach Adam and George the correct way to eat and act but finally places them in the hands of a tutor who also teaches Christable poetry. After a few lessons, Adam pays the tutor to stay away. By doing this he thought he would be able to live in peace once more. However, Elsie still insists that they must get into society. Finally after some persuasion on the part of Adam, Elsie agrees to leave for home after she has accomplished two things. First, that she entertain some prominent family such as Mr. and Mrs. Van Witherspoon and their son Cyril; and second, that her picture is in the spciety column. Inspired by this promise, Adam and George investigate and find that the Van Witherspoons are in distress financially. Taking advantage; of this, they hire them to come to dinner. They also hire __________ 69 ___POTTAWAM a newspaper reporter to interview Elsie and put her picture in the paper. After the dinner on the eventful night, the reporter comes to see Elsie and later overhears the conversation in which Adam tells all. Immediately, Elsie refuses to leave, however, Adam and George tell her that they lost their entire fortune when they purchased some stock from Mr. Van Witherspoon. In the end they go back to Jerkwater and they find that the stocks are alright. Marguerite also marries Cyril Van Witherspoon. The members of the cast were: Adam Dunni-gan - Ray Shedd; Elsie Dunnigan - Carol Culver; George, their son - Howard Main; Marguerite, their daughter - Virginia Walter; Christab’e, their daughter - Eunice Ball; Mr. Van Witherspoon - Max Putman; Mrs. Van Witherspoon -Della Dean; Cyril, their son - Lloyd Jenkins; Miss Gadget, tutor - Mi'dred Stevens; Scruples, the butler - Carroll Reese; Reporter - Addie Doolittle. Even though the entire class could not be in the play everyone helped in making it a successful production. 70POITAWAM Junior Play “Bashful BcTJby” The Juniors presented thdir play, “Bashful Bobby,” at Guild Hall, April 29. This was a comedy in three acts. Being their first play the Juniors were very excited but it proved to be quite a success. The story begins when Judson (Bob Bowling) and Louise (Donna Goff), the butler and maid, are preparing the home of Matilda Matthews (Anita Belle Johnson) for a group of high school graduates on their last get together before college. Finally the party of seven students arrives. They are chaperoned by Miss Odessa Henworthy (Maxine Moore), who is an old maid school teacher and a very dear friend of Mrs. Matthews. The students are young and very active but Miss Odessa is very strict with them while Mrs. Matthews wants them to act natural and enjoy themselves. The boys are delighted to annoy Judson. Harry Collins (Jack Fousel) learns to hypnotize people and to prove it to Robert Downing (Marlin McElhenie) and Jim Bradley (John Shedd), two of his friends, he hypnotizes Judson. They feel that hypnotism is quite an art so proceed to hypnotize Miss Odessa. They do this to find out what questions she intends to give Jim on his exam. He failed his history exam and has the chance to make it up on this trip. Robert is fond of Mrs. Matthew s niece, Helen Norwood (Madge Leatherbury), but being very bashful he does not show his affection. Harry hypnotizes Robert, making him think that he is the great lover, Lochinvar. Harry is not able to bring 71POTTAWfllfl him around. Jim and Harry becoming alarmed, for Robert proposes to almost every lady he meets, take him on a camping trip. But Robert leaves camp at night and crawls into the window of Anne Hawkins (Rose Ellen Delong), a friend of Helen. He even gives a black eye to Jerry Roebuck (Elwin Williams), who always bullied Robert. It is necessary to call a professional hypnotist, a French Madame DuPont (Margaret Whitthuhn), to bring Robert back to his normal senses. Miss Odessa is surprised to find that Jim makes ICO on his history exam but Jim and Harry know that he has studied the questions that Miss Odessa gave them when she was hypnotized. Robert, after finding out the drastic things he did while hypnotized, gets up nerve enough to propose to Helen, the girl he really loves. 72I m Em Operetta ‘‘Hollywood Bound” A musical comedy in three acts. The operetta “Hollywood Bound” was presented by the Boys’ and Girls’ Chorus on February 25, 1 938, at the Guild Hall.

When the curtain rises, everyone is talking, and things are whizzing around the studio. Finally, Windy Bryan asks everyone to be quiet so that Bob Kent may show his new color process caT ed “Vericolor” to those in the studio. Mr. Norton, the president of Quadrangle Pictures, is backing Bob Kent with his experiment and believes that he will b« able to dominate the movie industry with Bob’s new process. Everyone is surprised when the big test for “Vericolor” is a flat failure. Bob knows this is due to sabotage on the part of someone who wants him to fail, but Norton is unimpressed and he withdraws his support and gives Bob a week to get out of the studios. Bob asks for another chance to prove to Norton that it is a success but Norton doesn’t even listen to Bob. With the help of Windy Bryan, his song writer pal, and Marcia, Mr. Norton’s daughter, Bob gees ahead to film his own show, “Fanfare ”. which is to demonstrate the practicability of Vericolor. Marcia Norton borrows some of her father’s horses and Quadrangle movie stars, and the show “Fanfare” gets under production. Fanfare, the horse, is played very well by Eunice Ball and Phyllis Wagoner with the use of some old gunny sacks. One difficulty after another is thrown in Bob’s way, and it finally appears that there is nothing left to do but give up. However, some quick thinking finally turns the tables. The success of Vericolor is demonstrated to the satisfaction of everyone including Mr. Norton. The Chinese detectives, Wun Flop and Hi De Ho, disclose the identity of the malefactors who have been working against Bob, and the curtain fahs with the prospects of a wedding in the near future. The operetta was under the direction of Miss Ash and the accompianist was Carol Culver. ..................... 74 _____POTTAWAM FEATURES and EVENTS 75Senior Skip Day Friday, May 20, twenty dignified Seniors with drivers and chaperons started to Chicago. When we arrived in Chicao we went to the Great Northern Hotel where we stayed that night. In the aLernoon, parv of the group went to the ball game and saw the White Sox versus New York Yankees. The res of the Seniors took various tours. That night we saw Chicago after dark. We took a tour which included China Town, Ghetto and Maxwell Street, Hull House, Hobo Land and Little Bohemia. In Chinatown we visited the magnificent Chinese Temple. Upon arising Saturday morning, we took the north shore tour. Among the various points of in-t rest were, Chicago’s Double Deck Street, the the Cold Coast, Edgewater Beach Hotel and the Uptown shopping center. We made two stops during this tour. One was at the Elks National War Memorial and the other was at the Garfield Park Conservatory of Flowers. That afternoon on our way back home we stopped at the Field Museum, The P netarium and the Museum of Science and Industry. At the latter we went into the coal mine which is constructed within the building. All of our tours were exceedingly interesting as well as educational. We arrived home late Saturday evening after the most enjoyable Skip Day any class could ever have. 77Q POTTAWAM The Junior - Senior Prom One of the most delightful events of the year is the Junior - Senior Prom. Each year the Juniors give a prom for the Seniors. This is a formal reception and i': is a pleas'ing sight to see all of the s’u dents and guests formahy dressed. This year the Juniors gave the Prom at the Marshall County Club, May 27. They were quite successful in planning an entertainment for the Seniors. The plans were all laid on Southern s yle. The Country club was decorated with smart ideas of the south. One corner was set off by pillars for a porch, on which the orchestra was seated, and the rest of the dance hall was decorated to appear as an outdoor lawn. Lawn parties are very popular in the South. The Prom began with a banquet dinner for members of the Junior and Senior class, the facultv and school board. The favors arranged on the table were bales of cotton. Also programs were furnished. These had the menu, dinner program and dancing program printed on them. After the delicious southern sty e dinner was served a short program was given with Marlin McElhenie acting as toastmaster. The guests of the students arrived at nine o’clock at the time the orchestra started playing. At intermission cocktail punch was served. The music was furnished by the swing band of Erwin Lee from Coldwater. They made the Prom a swing as well as “spring” reception. tr _______________________ 78School Parties This j'ear we decided that instead of having class parties we would have all-school parties. Our first party was held on December 3, 1937 at the school. When our tickets were taken at the door we were presented with paper mone . Af . r wo got upstairs we found that Mr. Canfield’s room had been turned into a carnival midway where we could spend our money at several booths. After winning a prize on the spelling board we went to the baseball diamond. Here we weren’t very su cessful at making home runs so we attempted to ring the candle stick with a can rubber. After spending some time there we took in the side show which occupied Miss Ash’s room. Mr. CanFe’d acted as chief crowd caller. On the inside we were given an examination to test our knowledge. Of course the smartest person won. We then returned to the assembly room where we danced. The music was furnished by the Williams’ orchestra. Our last parLy was held on April 22. It was planned on somewhat the same order as the first one. We began the evening off right by ringing several nails on the spelling board, but of course we couldn’t be perfect the first time so we left that to come back later. From there we went to the balloon booth where we attempted to break a balloon with a pin dart. After several attempts we gave up in disgust only to return a little later. Another fascinating game was the bowling alley where, if we knocked down five pins, you were congratulated and given a prize. We next visited the airplane ring3. At this booth you were considered lucky if you could put three paper airplanes through three loops of different sizes. At last we wandered down stairs to watch an exciting game of ping pong. Soon we returned to the assemb’y room to sp nd the remainder of the evening dancing. Arthur Ball and his electrical phonograph furnished the music for the evening.C ikl POTTAWAM Future Farmers Week Eleven of us boys, accompanied by Mr. Wiss' man, left Thursday morning, May 5, 1938 for the annual Future Farmer Week at Michigan State College. Af er an enjoyable trip, we arrived at the campus. Since mo3t of us were in the later judging s c ions we had until noon to look around and see the sights. Elwin Williams, Paul Senker, and Leo Howard were in the Dairy Products contest. Each had to score seven samples of butter and seven samples of milk. We had a little practice at the creamery, but found this contest quite hard. Robert Bowling, Jack Fousel, Robert Smith, and Joseph Skudlarick were in the Livestock contest. They judged one ring each of horses, beef cattle, sheep, and swine. Richard King, Richard Olney, Lester Senker, and Ernest Waffle were in the Grain Judging contest. They placed samples of wheat, oats, and corn, and identified 1 3 different plates of common grain and weed seeds. We spent the afternoon sightseeing either on the campus or at Lansing. The various departments put on demonstrations, the Military Department had a parade, and the Athletic Department hid football scrimmage practice. Michigan State Police headquarters attracted many of the boys. A kJlg, special program for all Future Farmer boys was held in Demonstration Hall on Thursday evening. Music by the Michigan State Band opened the program, followed by a parade of some of the choice purebred livestock owned by the Co’Iege. Then there were games and stunts such as mounted egg race, egg catching contest, mounted tug-of-war, and mounted high jumps. We especial’y enjoyed the polo games which is played in four chuk-kers (quarters to you). The teams were the M.S.C. Pedagogues and the Lansing Red Wings, the latter winning by a score of 1 0-4. The program closed _____________ 80 -with a movie of the Tenth National Future Farmers Convention held at Kansas City last summer. After the program, we were issued our army cots and were assigned to Riding Hall. We made up our cots and it felt good just to stretch out. There were about 500 in the Hall and when the lights went out at 11:30 we “tried” to sleep. By 5:30 most of us had given up the idea of trying to sleep, dressed, and gone to get breakfast. In fact so many had the same idea that the college boys had to wait in line while the farmer boys ate their breakfast. Robert Bowling, Jack Fousel, Elwin Williams, and Paul Senker were in the Dairy Contest. They judged one class each of the four dairy breeds: Holstein, Guernsey, Jersey, and Ayrshire. Leo Howard, Joseph Skudlarick, and Robert Smith were in the Poultry Contest. They had to identify 30 breeds of chickens, judge four classes of laying hens, and candle a dozen eggs to place them in their proper grade. The same boys who were in the Grain contest entered the Potato Contest on Friday. Here they placed classes of Irish Cobbler, Russet Rural, and Green Mountain potatoes as well as identified 1 5 tubers as to correct variety. Jack Fousel was raised to the degree of “State Farmer” at a meeting of the Michigan Future Farmer delegates held at the Union Building Friday morning. This is the highest degree our Michigan Association can grant, and we felt very happy because Jack has been the first one from our Tekon-sha chapter to be so honored. On Thursday, Richard King and Jack Fousel entered the tryouts and were successful in being selected as clairnet players in the Michigan Future Farmer Band. It is conducted by Mr. Musselman of Okemos, and appeared on several programs. Friday afternoon twelve tired, happy peop bid farewell to Michigan State until another year.POTTAWAM Class Will We, the Senior Class of Tekonsha High School of Tekonsha in the County of Calhoun and State of Michigan being of sound mind and memory (practially at least) do make, and hereby publish, and declare this our last will and testament in the following manner; Article I - To the High School we leave our ability to get along with teachers, study hard and to receive good marks.
