THE ECHO JUNE 1938 Published by the SE N I OR C LA S S of VASSAR PUBLIC SCHOOLS Vassar, Michigan The PROGRESS--the forward move- ment of all things that are worth- while, of all things that are noble and good-has been the marked characteristic of Vassar Public Schools. Within these pages we have attempted to bring before you suggestions and intimations of the new and the old, of the fas- cination of the present and the heritage of the past. We do not hope to give you a masterpiece, but in the years that await uz when these days at Vassar will have become dim and pleasant memories, if this book succeeds, in some measure, in reawakening' re- membrances of your school career we are well repaid for our efforts.

Administration Page PRESENT SCHOOL BUILDING ON NORTH MAIN STREET History of Vassar Public Schools The progress of Vassar has been marked. by the increasing ex- cellence of its school system. The first school in Vassar was held only a few months after the town was officially organized, in 1851. It was started through the efforts of Townsend North, the well known founder of Vassar. The "Curtis Shanty", 0.1 South Main Street, where the Vas- sar Dairy now stands, was used for a school house. Miss Augusta Slafter was hired to conduct school for three months during the summer, at a salary of one dollar and a half per week and the privilege of 'boardinf around' with the parents of pupils. It is an interesting fact that Tefl Slafter and Ted Hart, Seniors this year, are distantly related .to Mis: Slafter. The next year a frame school house was built. D. G. Wilder. Charles Fonda, and A. J. Leach taught here during' the terms of 1852 and 1853. This served as a school building for several years. In 1860 a brick school house was built on the place where the High School now stands. Mr. Keyes was the t"rst principal in this new building. It was graded in 1864 bv ex-congressman IC. P. Allen. but diplomas were not granted until 1871. An addition was made to this building in 1881, to provide for in- creased enrollment. Later, excavations were made for basements, but work was never completed. Cement steps were built to replace the original wooden ones. ln 1886 a school was built on the east side of the river. This was later named the McKinley School in honor of President McKinley. At one time the mothers of children in this school formed a lVIother's Club. This organization accomplished, among other fine things. the remodeling of the basement of the McKinley School into a playroom for the children. Eight Another small school was built in 12569. '1'n1s was known as tne Townsend Norm bcnool. 'ine build- ing, on Maple Street, has now been con- verted into a two- tamily house. Catastrophe in the form of a Iire, came in 1917. Since it happened at night theie were no casual- ties, but it was a serious loss to the community, as not only tue school building, but also many valuable re- cords, were destroy- ed. A new school building was imme- diately started, and completed in time for the fallterm of 1918. Recent progress in Vassar Schools has been the completion and dedication ol' the New Addition on SECOND SCHOOL BUILDING January 21, 1937. An ever increasing attendance has demanded a larger building. The Addition was made possible through the I-S711 av . R-3m,.,i,. , . . 1 ' QB 'iz' I -" 310, I "1 kilt.. 1- Tl lfye- .

The building con- sists of a combination gym- nasium - auditorium seat- ing 1,000 people, a modern Home Economics depart- ment, and an administra- tion office. Splendid new locker rooms for both boys and girls are included in the new building. We are deeply indebted to those early settlers who realized the need for edu- cation, and to all who have helped our school system grow throughout the years. We are certain ihat the same high standard of pro- gress will be carried on in the future. McKINLEY SCHOOL Qld and New Courses of Study One of the most important fields in which progress has been made in the Vassar High School is in courses of study. In 1904 there were tw0 courses: Language and General. The Language courses required four years of foreign language, Latin and English being offered. The other subjects were mostly English, Mathe- matics, History, and Science. Commercial subjects were evidently just being introduced, for one-half year of Commercial Arithmetic was offer- ed with one-half year of Bookkeeping. Extra curricular activities were rather frowned upon at that time, as detracting the pupils attention from their other studies. The Lyceum consisting of oratory contests, and a mixed Glee Club, were greeted with enthusiasm. When the present school building was erected in 1918, practical courses had gained importance and provision was made for such subjects as Agriculture, Manual Arts, Home Economics, and Commerce. At present the high school offers five courses of study: ill College Preparatory or Academic. f2J Commercial, C31 Agriculture, C43 Home Economics, C53 Manual Arts. A wide variety of subjects is offered under these headings so that every student may be able to select an interesting schedule. Each course of study requires a minimum of sixteen units of credit Four full-time subjects completed successfully, over a period of one year, give four units of credit. It may be of interest to the reader to know that Vassar High School fully conforms to the new college entrance reouirements, as re- cently adopted by the University of Michigan and the North Central Associationg and that this school has been accredited by the University Ten of Michigan continuously since 1899, longer than any other school in the county. The qualifications of the faculty and the standards maintained by the Board of Education, have also made it possible for the Vassar Public Schools to belong to the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges since 1930. Certain extra curricular activities have become increasingly im- portant. Beginning this year high school Art and Band have been ac- cepted as full credit classes, meeting five days a week. Speech has been given full credit for some time. In so far as the course of study in the grades is concerned, much has been done to make the work more profitable and interesting. In our school we have a testing program which extends thro-ugh the eighth grade. This enables teachers to determine the amount of progress their children are making in relation to similar classes throughout the coun- try. In connection with this program, remedial work is given to those pupils who are in need of special help. The grade program is also made more colorful by grade pro- jects, such as operating a Grocery Store, Post Office, Rhythm Band, Vocal Music, and Art. In the gymnasium a health program, through physical education, is given to every boy and girl. The progress which has been made in courses of study has done much to make school life at Vassar more interesting and .to offer more practical training. Some Interesting Facts Relative to the Vassar Public Schools The Vassar Public Schools were organized in 1851, and still oper- ate under the special act of the legislature of 1859. .,. The Vassar Public Schools now employ twenty-two teachers. In 1916 fourteen teachers were employed. The school population is stead- ily on the increase. Vassar High School has been accredited by the University of Michigan since 1899 and approved by the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges since 1930, the highest attainment any high school may reach. By being so accredited, Vassar graduates, upon recommendation of the Superintendent or Principal, are admitted to the University of Michigan and other colleges in the State of Michigan with- out entrance examinations. The Parent Teachers' Association organized in 1925 has proved to be a very worthwhile organization and has been a fine medium to bind the ties more closely between pupils, teachers, and parents. The Activities Council, composed of a representative from each class and the various organizations, provides closer cooperation between the students and high school authorities. , Vassar High School has much to offer in the field of practical courses: Farm Crops and Soils, Animal Husbandry, Agricultural Eco- nomics, Shop I, Farm Shop, Advanced- Shop, Home Economics which in- cludes sewing, cooking, and home making in general, Bookkeeping, Typewriting, Shorthand, Junior' Bl1Siness, Comercial Arithmetic, and Com- merical Law. 1 Page Ee 'ven Graduates of the Commercial Department take positions in offices without further training. There are splendid opportunities to participate in Football, Basket Ball, Baseball, Track, Tennis, Intramural Athletics, Band, Boys' and Girls' Glee Club, Dramatics, Debate, F. F. A. Agricultural Club, Radio Club, Camera Club, Archery Club, Girls' Home Economics Club, Girl Reserves, Library Staff, Newspaper Staff, and Annual Staff, also grade and high school assembly programs. All students also have an oppor- tunity to secure Instrumental Instruction without cost.

School opens Tuesday, September 6, 1938, at 1:00 P. M. There will be a teachers meeting at 9:00 A. M. 2 Old School Records Reveal the Following Interesting Data: At a meeting of the School Board held at the' Post Office on the 26th of July, 1861, an order was drawn in favor of William Lee, Jr., tak- ing care of school rooms at 36.00 per week. At 9, meeting of the Board of Trustees held at the old Post Officz building on the evening of Saturday, October 5, 1861, it was "Voted that Miss Mildred Padman be employed during the coming winter term to teach in the primary department at 253.50 per week." At a meeting of the School Board held at the office of the Secre- tary on the evening of June 29, 1863, it was "resolved that for the better efficiency of the school and protection of the House. that the request of the Eureka Lyceum to use the House for their Exhibition be not granted, that the janitor, Wilfred Kellogg, be instructed to keep two of the keys to said House exclusivelv in his possession and to use them for no purpose except that for which the school demands, and that he close the House at all times whenever he leaves it at night. that the House shall for NO PURPOSE be kept open evenings LATER than one- half past 9 P.

Furman4Secretary William DierckfTrustec Rex R. Gunnell-Treasurer Oscar Curell-Trustee The students of the Vassar Public Schools have enjoyed and appreciated the benefits afforded them through the cooperation, ef- ficiency and interest of the Board of Education. Through its efforts the School has become one of the best in this region, and the students have been provided with excellent facilities and the most modern equipment. Through the efforts of the present Board it was made possible for Vassar to have one of the finest auditoriums in the Thumb District. Through their genuine interest and untiring efforts, together with a gift of 316,363 from the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works, the Board of Education very efficiently effected negotiations for the purchase of equipment and completion of the New Addition. The progress of the school has been marked by the purchase of new typewriters for the Commercial Department, powered equipment for the Manual Arts Department, redecorating of the interior of the old building and installation of a new heating plant. Additional sup- plies and equipment for the Science and Music Departments, new tables and chairs for the Primary Rooms of both Central and McKinley Schools, and additional teaching supplies for both High School and Grades have all been accomplished through the efforts of our Board of Education. For these many advantages and for the earnest, sincere, and successful efforts on the part of the members of the Board, the student body wishes to take this opportunity to express its genuine gratitude. Page Thirteen SUPERINTENDENT Ralph E. Brant, for the past four years, has ably superinteided the Vassar Public Schools, safe-guarding its ideals and promoting its progress. Selected by the Vassar Board of Education in the fall of 1934, Mr. Brant came to Vassar especially Well recommended. Fora number of years, before taking his position here, he was head of the Caledonia Public Schools and was formerly Principal and athletic director of the Augusta Public Schools. Mr. Brant, who graduated from the Bellevue High School, re- ceived his A.B. degree from Olivet College, and his Masters' Degree in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, New York City. Columbia also granted him a special diploma for excellence of work in the field of school administration. Superintendent Brant Was appointed by the Michigan Educational Association headquarters to organize the Tuscola County Teachers Asso- ciation. He is to be commended for the fine efficiency with which he carried out this responsiblity. He was prominent in his position as president of that organization for the following term during which many worthwhile projects were corrpleted. He is active in a number of local organizations, holding offices in several. Community service, to which he gives most freely of his time and effort, is his by-word. His accomplishments and interests in community life are a fulfillment of his natural enthusiasm and high ideals. Members of the faculty and the students realize and fully ap- preciate all the fine achievements that were brought about through Mr. Brant's efforts in this school. We, as a group wish him many more successful years as Superintendent of the Vassar Public Schools. P Paqc Fourteen VASSAR PUBLIC SCI-1001.5 RALPH E. BRANT. Superintendent VASSAR, MICHIGAN May 27, 1938 To the Parents, Students, and Patrons of Vassar, Michigan: I take pleasure in using the "Echo" as a medium through which I may .peak to the parents, students, and patrons of our community, concerning the Vassar Public Schools. I particularly desire to congratulate the Senior Class, and the "Echo" staff for their earnest effort in making this edition possible. Through its pages this publication presents a pictorial cross-section of the day-by-day activities of the boys and girls of our community, from kindergarten through the high school, which stand in contrast to the school of yesterday. "Progress" is the watch word - The school of today, without losing sight of those "Basic Skills", - reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetlc, has improved in methods and in expansion and variation of curriculums, to the point where for the most part, school has become a place where children want to go, rathei than have to go. School children today are provided an opportunity, through individual and cooperative endeavors, to practice self-direction, self-control, and self? appraisal, by engaging in projects, group work, informal discussions, exhibits, and dramatizations, such as our grade and high school students have presented both in the class xooms and in assemblies. All instruction is subject to survey and appraisal throughout the year. Standardized testing programs provide one means of determining the effec- tiveness of instructional practices. Parents are advised of the progress of their children through report cards designed to show growth, personal quali- ties, and rank in class, as well as control over subject matter. As we speed along in this era of Progress equipped as we are with modern educational facilities, we should not lose slght of the Church and the Home as two major influences so necessary in molding the student's spiritual and moral well-being. With the Home providing love, security, and an ade- quate standard of living, and the Church giving moral and spiritual direction, the School can do much to develop those qualities ot character which are of special significance in a Democracy. In conclusion, our goal for the Vassar Public Schools is to strive to provide for every student an education which, through the discovery and de- velopment of his individual abilities, prepares him for life, and through train- ing and vocational guidance prepares him for a living which will yield him the maximum of satisfaction.

The first few days were spent in getting acquainted with High School life and the exceptionally fine staff of teachers. As Freshmen we elected as our class president, Don Garner, vice-president, Beatrice Web- sterg secretary, Alberta Reichleg treasurer, Edward Swanson, and Mr. Hamilton as class sponsor. One day late in the month of September we were instructed to appear at school the following day, the girls wearing their dresses inside out, bows in their hair and carrying dolls, the boys wearing over-alls and aprons. The Sophomores called it initiation and of course the Freshmen were compelled to agree with them. The next fall, fifty-nine out of the sixty-four returned as sopho- mores. Many interesting and successful events occurred during our sophomore year. We succeeded in selecting our class officers which were: Ted Slafter, presidentg Emma Andrews, vice-presidentg Jack Ho.1- singer, secretary, Frances Russell treasurer, and as our class sponsor, Mr. Slaughter. The wheel of time spins rapidly 'round, and We were Juniors be- fore we realized it. Ten, we are sorry to say, did not return. By this time we had grown to love old V. H. S. and were ready to uphold her standards. We immediately began this season by electing our officers: President, Ted Hartg vice-president Grant Batesg secretary, Alberta Rei- chleg treasurer, Marion DuBois3 sponsor, Mr. Pemberton. The Junior play, "Growing Pains" coached by Miss Hare and Miss Wellemeyer, was very successful. It supplied the funds for one of the best Junior-Sen- ior banquets, which was sponsored a week later. We all looked forward to the opening of school the next fall when we would assemble as "Dignified" Seniors. The next fall thirty-eight of the sixty-four, who had started as Freshmen, came back to finish their high school career. The officers for this last year were: President, Mary Garner, vice-resident, Grant Bates, secretary, Bernadine Schafer, treasurer, Clarence Rausch, and as sponsor, Mr. Yonker. The play selected by the class was "Guess Again", which was very successful, and was under the able direction of Miss Woodman. This year has been a very busy one for us all. Besides our regular work we have published the "Echo", the first annual since 1926. We have tried to make this publication a creditable oneg we leave it with you to decide whether we have succeeded. With graduation in view our class chose as its flower the yellow tea rose, class colors, blue and gold, and the fitting motto, "Building for Eternity." As the last few weeks of school approached we look forward to all the happy events which were to be a part of our graduation. One of the outstanding events was the Junior- Senior Banquet on May 27, for which we wish to sincerely thank the Jun- ior Class. Other Senior events were the Senior Day on May 25, Senior Assembly on May 18, Baccalaureate Service on June 5 and finally Com- mencement Exercises on June 8. . In closing I wish to express for the class the hope that thus far in our climb toward a goal of higher education We have cariied on worth- ily the traditions of Vassar High School.

We were taken into the high school by the customary initiation, given by the Sophomore Class. Both Freshman parties, The Harvest Party on November fifth and Spanish Fiesta on January fourteenth were very well attended and en- joyed by all.

GRADE SCHOQL The later elementary grades of Vassar Public Schools have been unusually busy during the past year in activities both in the class room and out. The sixth grade, in addition to its regular class work has been unusually interested in musical activities. Nine members of the class are in the Senior Band and twenty members in the Grade Band. The members have been very active in service to others. A box social was held, the proceeds of which were canteributed to a fund for crippled children. The class also contributed a Thanksgiving box to the same cause. The fifth and sixth overflow room has been busy this year. A number of activities in which real life conditions are 'set forth has been the theme for the year. The fifth grade has been unusually busy in correlating playlets, songs and recitations with the regular class work. A number of social parties have also been sponsored. The third and fourth grades have planned their work to include programs in honor of important national holidays. i During the year ten Grade Assembly Programs are provided for all the grade pupils and their parents, each grade room presenting one Assembly. Through these assembly programs the grade children de- velop poise and confidence which may help them to serve as better future citizens cf the Community. One of the most outstand'n0: events of the year in which all the grades participated was the Marble Tournament, sponsored by the Flint Journal. Champions from each grade were first decided and final'y the school champion, Lawrence Gillman, was picked by tournament play from this group.

GRADE SCHGGL Activities in the early elementary department of Vassar Public Schools stress not only the curriculum subjects but also the extra-cur- ricular activities of the group which tends to supplant and aid the regu- lar class Work. At McKinley School the second and third grades have been heart- ily engaged in a most interesting and educational post office project. The kindergarten and first grades have completed a fully equipped grocery store. These projects of buying and selling groceries, writing, mailing, and delivering 'letters enable the pupils to learn the processes which are actually going on in life. At Central, the second grade has been intensely interested in the study of plants. They have been unusually fortunate in growing a num- ber of beautiful flowering plants. The first grade has been interested in a grocery store project and also in equipping and running 3 grade li- brary. Orange crates Were made into fine looking book cases and chairs. The kindergarten at Central has centered its activities about an ice cream store and green house. The kindergarten child, by participating in acti- vities which are a part of his environment Will be better prepared for the all-important task of learning the work presented in later grades. The Vassar grade teachers have cooperated splendidly in mak- ing it possible to have an extensive testing program, extending from the first grade through the sixth grade, which has been in progress for the past four years. The testing activity enables the teacher to present those things which each particular student needs most.

Because of this cat- astrophe the electors of the District voted on Friday, February 14, to sengl their children to the Vassar Public Schools. Accordingly a bus was purchased, through' the "State Aid Tran- sportation Program Offered Rural Districts," and the Chadwick children are now enjoying all the educational advantages offered by the Vassar Public Schools. The Board of Education and the electors of the Chadwick District are to be congratulated on making it possible for their children tc- secure the same educational opportunities as children in the city schools receive. The school transportation program of Michigan has expanded with extraordinary rapidity in recent years. In 1919 four hundred pupils were transported daily. In 1936 about 35,000 pupils were transported daily in 800 buses operated by the school districts of the state. This number of pupils does not include many additional thousands transported in other vehicles or by the parents of pupils. Greater liber- ality of state aid for bus transportation is increasing, year by year, the number of school buses in operation. The State reimburses Rural Districts for the transportation of their pupils to graded schools when such schools are closed in Whole or in part. The State provides such transportation in order to provide adequate edu- cational opportunities for all childrcn. ' The amount of reimbursement is determined by the Superin- tendent of Public Instruction but cannot exceed 840.00 per pupil tran- sported. When a Rural School District votes to close one or more of its grades, the State also reimburses for the transportation of High School pupils from that District who are at that time attending' High School, thus saving parents of such children considerable expense. For further information concerning transportation services offer- ed by the State, Rural Districts should consult Superintendent Ralph E. Brant. Forty Vassar High School and ltps Rural School Program Each year Vassar High School offers rural schools a Rural Athletic Meet and Play Festival in which four hundred ninety-nine pupils from twenty-six rural schools participated this year, an annual In- door Baseball Tournament, and motion pictures of Rural School Day acti- vities taken annually. It also provides speakers and vocal music to rural school Parent-Teacher Associations. It provides for girls, a new, modern, and complete Department of Home Economics for teaching cooking, sewing, and general home manage- ment, and offers the services of a trained instructor who supervises girls' home projects through the school year and during tthe summer vacation. ' In addition a Department of Agriculture is provided for boys de- signed to teach Crops and Soils, An'mal Husbandry, Agriculture Econo- mics, and offers the services of a trained instructor who supervises boys' farm projects, and cooperates with the farmers of the surrounding rural community during the school year and summer vacation. Also a De- partment of Manual Arts designated to teach woodworking, general and farm projects. It provides a High School on the four-year accredited list of the University of Michigan and the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges, which maintains a staff of well-trained, experienc- ed teachers who are interested in developing the individual interests of each and every student. Graduation from High School is becoming ever more important. A high school diploma is an additional badge of character. It shows to the world that you possess sufficient energy, courage, and determination to complete a task once begun. Your high school course will strengthen your character because it will make you better able to select your life work. A high school di- ploma will add to your prestige in in the community and position in the world. Completion of a high school course is absolutely essential for ad- mission to colleges or professional schools. Statistics show that the person who possesses only an eighth grade diploma earns on the average a salary of eight hundred dollars per year. The high school graduate will average for the balance of his or her life an income of one thousand five hundred to two thousand dollars. You can graduate from High School. It will at once place you on a higher level in your community and give you a higher rank among your fellows. Page Forty one ECHO STAFF Top Row-C. Rausch, T. Slafter, R. Stoley, S. Opperman, M.

It soon became evident that their enthusiasm was supported by that of the administration and the alumni. Since it was the first to be published in the school in several years the ciass realized the difficulty of the task they had undertaken. After committees had Worked out the details for the organization to do it, the staff was chosen with much delibera- tion. In order that the important preliminary work of the business staf' might be accomplished in the short time allotted, the editorial staff turned its efforts toward that phase of the work for a few Weeks. Several well-planned assemblies and sales drives were carried on successfully. When the actual Writing was begun the individual initiative of the various staff members was brought into play in arranging their depart- ments. A much needed staff room was constructed and equipped by the staff on the second floor. The cooperation of the staff members iii carrying on their work was commendable. The day set aside for photo- graphing the various groups will not be forgotten. Mistakes were made no doubt but the staff-'feels that its venture was a success and hopes that it will be carried on from year to yea: by future Senior Classes.

The local Tuscola Pioneer-Times kindly allowed us a section in their edition in which we inserted the school paper called "The Voice oi' the School." Through excellent cooperation on the part of every staff member, the publication meets the dead-line every week, with a better paper than the last one. To have the local newspaper print our school paper in itself, is truly an advantage. Not only does it give us a very professional looking paper, but it also increases thc circulation to parents as well ai students. In March we visited the Saginaw News Building and enjoyed an interesting trip, getting much information on the printing ol' at modern daily newspape1'. Each week we have attempted to bring you reports, news, and humor. The reporters have brought the latest news from classrooms and activities. The spot: section has given resumes of the games as well as inside information on the team. The features included "Close Ups" and "Funny Bones." We feel that our progress in journalism has well compensated our effoits in this organization. Page Forty-Hue Page GIRLS GLEE CLUB BOYS GLEE CLUB GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Top Row-H. M. Bradley, M.

' The Girls' Glee Club of 1938 has had a very successful year in the Vassar High School. Under the direction of Mr. Maikowski the 45 girls have progressed steadily the past two years. The Glee Club was privileged to attend many festivals this season. The annual trip to Mt. Pleasant has become one of the major events of the year. Each year they have attended, the girls have rated high in comparison with the other Glee Clubs. The Boys' Glee Club has greatly increased in size and qualitv this year. The annual trip to the State Music Festival at Mt. Pleasant as well as the trip to Bad Axe was considered a great success by the lub. Marie Bates deserves much credit for the excellent way in which she accompanied the Glee Clubs.

Dick falls in love with Jewel fEvelyne Fischerl the daughter of the Caliph fJohn Heustedl. She later turns out to be the "Belle" and promises to marry Dick and go to Hollywood. The comedv was furnished by Henrietta Whipstich CJane Waltonl, a disappointed spinster and Archie Fitzgibbons fClarence Rauschj, who loved not wise- ly but too well. The oriental atmosphere of the setting and the music made the operetta rather unique. The operetta cast and chorus were made up of approximately 80 people. They enjoyed working together for the production of the oper- etta. The work of the chorus as American tourists and native Persians was noteworthy.

Vassar High School is proud of its band. It is in a better con- dition this year than eve: before. It consists of 45 members ranging from grader: 6 to 12. The schedule was arranged the past year so the band could have practice every day. The pupils receive a full credit for the year's work. With this arrangement the band has had an opportunity to progress very rapidly and under Mr. Maikowskifs excellent leadership they have gain- ed a high standing in the minds of the citizens of the community as well as all other people having the privilege of hearing them. The band was much improved by the addilion of several new in- struments including a sousaphone and an alto horn. By working with people inthe grades Mr. Maikowski has been able to make the various sections of the band more balanced. The band has attended many band gatherings. The most impor- tant being the band festival at Owfsso. This was helpful to each mem- ber. They had the opportunity of hearing other High School Bands of Michigan play and also had the privilege of taking part in the mass band. The annual concerts were orginated by Mr. Maikowski and have proved ta be very successful. Many citizens of Vassar and near-by towns witnessed the fine concert given thi: year. It was named the "Band Blaref' One of the most important events of the year was the county Band Festival held at Vassar in April. Bands representing Caro, Cass City, Mayville, and Millington were present. A clinic band made up of selected players from the five bands present was conducted by Dr. Wil- liam Norton of Flint. Mr. Maikowski is to be crezlitcd h'ghly in the way he has improv- cd the technique of the band. Page Forty-s lf 1 F. F. A. Top ROWAR. Grinnell, F. Heindl, G. Glazier. Second ROWQW. Decoe, N.

The club was organized in 1935 to stimulate interest in Home Economics and was under the leadership of Miss Marion Wright. The State Home Economics Club, in which the Vassar Seco Club is a member, sponsors a Vocational Camp each summer at Dowling, Michi- gan. Our club has sent a representative each yea1'. Anna Hohman Went in 1936 and Rosemary Ellis in 1937. Several methods of making money have been used for the expense of this camp. In 1936 the club made recipe books that were collections of favorite recipes chosen by the club. In 1937, Orange and Black yarn dolls were made and sold for school emblems. In 1938, candy, hot dogs, and stationery has been sold. The theme of the programs for this year has been "Improvement of the High School Girl". This improvement was brought out in each meet- ing by speakers or discussion groups. Mrs. Theodore Hoffman spoke on the "Career of Nursing," Mrs. D. C. Atkins on the "Social Life of the High School Girl" and Mrs. Merle Giddings on "Personal Improvement." At Christmas time the enthusiastic club members prepared for the needy, baskets of food and clothing. The members also gave a Hobo party of the F. F. A. boys and a picnic to complete the program. For next year the club plans to organize a "Big Sister" week for the new pupils in the High School and looks forward to a bigger and better year.

Cooperating with him they formed the organization which has been very active and successful. Two years ago a number wave radio formed the nencleus When school started in the Fall instructor, M1'. Yonker vias also The officers for the first year were as follows: President, Floyd Draper, Vice-president, Clifford Wilkinson, and Glenn Welsh as Secre- tary-Treasurer. Radio Club owes much of its rapid progress and activeness to a number of radio dealers of Saginaw who were kind enough to give us a number of old radio sets for experimental purposes. A fitting' climax to the first years' work was the initiation of new members which was held the following spring. Last fall our members returned to school in high spirits and with to make the club better than ever before. There were a determination difficulties of course, one of the greatest was the lack of a proper room in which to work. VVe succeeded in obtaining a cloak room which fitted the requirements perfectly. This was immediately transformed into Il radio laboratory. The club has now purchased a professional Hallicrafter Radio Re- ceiver which has been paid for entfrely by the club members themselves. The purpose of Radio Club is to work toward obtaining an ama- teur radio transmitting license. Radio club will always be thankful to the faculty who patiently refrained from complaining of the odd noise.: and squeals which at times escapei from the Radio Laboratory.

This organization is the first of its kind, in which school students participated in Tuscola County. The club pin used by thc members the preceeding year was again adopted. It was a miniature gold graduate, mortar and pestle with V. C. C. lettered in black. The purpose of the club is to promote general interest in photo- graphy, and to acquire knowledge concerning the different phases of photography by means of experiments, demonstrations and other sources. The success of the club surpassed everyone's fondest expectations. The members all cooperated and did their best to make every project, party, or event the best of its kind. Through the efforts of Mr. Yonker and the members, the club now owns most of the necessary equipment for a complete dark room. Mr. Yonker and the club should be congratulated in the way they work- ed to make this possible. An enlarger was donated by Mr. L. Garner which makes further study in Photography possible. The members all appreciate this dona- tion and have made good use of it. They had two skating parties in which the Radio Club also par- ticipated. The club participated in the Community Fair. Pictures were taken both nights of the fair, printed, and developed by the club. Contests are held at regular intervals during the school year with prizes awarded the winners. A group of lectures and lantern slides were secured from the Eastman Kodak Company by Mr. Yonker. These lectures and slides were very interesting and educational. Although over half of the members are graduating, those who remain and those who join in the fall are eagerly looking forward to another successful year.

Before the club was formed two representatives of the Bay City YWCA talked to a girls' assembly, explaining the organization of the club, its aims and activities. As a part of the Young Women's Christian Association, the or- ganization attempts to develop a spirit of friendliness and cooperation among the girls. It further attempts to furnish a guidance program for its members, helping them to find those activities to which they are particularily adapted. The club is divided into four groups, Homemaking, Athletics, Scrib- blers and Dramatics. Each club member belongs to one of these four divisions. The activities of the club are planned by six committees, namely: Membership, Finance, Piublic'ty, PrJgram, Social and Service. These committees are an important part of the organization and should be commended for their fine work during the past year. The club held its first Ceremonial meeting on November 15, and invited the mothers of the girls as guests. In addition to regular busi- ness meetings, several very enjoyable evening parties have been held. At Christmas time the club presented 3, number of practical gifts to a needy family. In February, two representatives of the club, Helen Koral and Anna German, attended a Girl Reserve State Conference at Grand Rapids. The members of the club are looking forward to an improved club next year and wish to extend a sincere and hearty welcome to all girl: of the high school who wish to become members.

It had twelve charter members participating in its organization. The club presented at the Christmas assembly two plays, "The Last Christmas", and "The Guest at the Inn." It has also sponsored two one-act plays for the benefit of the Activities Council. These plays were "Not Quite Such a Goose," and "The Valiant". "The Valiant" was later presented in an assembly at Cass City where it was well received. At an assembly in May 9, brief scene entitled "Derelict" was pre- sented. The last project of the year for the Club was the production of two plays that were presented at an evening performance for their par- ents and invited guests. The plays are "The Patchwork Quilt" and "Two Crooks and a Lady." The aim of the club is to familiarize the members with the funda- mental principles of dramatics, to develop and maintain an interest in the dramatic art, and give actual experience in play-acting and play-mana- gement of the members. Any student of Vassar High School is eligible for membership. Page Fifty-Ihre DEBATE D. Evans, I. Braido, Mr. Hamilton, P. Thompson, M, Schultz The debate team of 1938, d,.Le to the graduation of its former members, was a team composed of all new members. The question for debate this year in all the High Schools in Michigan was Resolved: "That the several states should adopt a unicameral form of legislation." Vassar, taking the affirmative, won over Flint Bendle and Lapeer by unanimous decisions. She then debated on the negative side, losing a two to one decision to Flint Beecher, but winning over Swartz Creek, thereby making a total of thiiteen points. This put the team in the elimination series and upheld the record of Winning a wall plaque every year for the past three years. In addition to a wall plaque for the school, through the courtesy of the Detroit Free Press, all participants in elimination debates received a pin or lapel button. The school also gives a pin to debaters of merit who complete a successful season. Probably in no year since Mr. Hamilton has been coaching the debating teams of Vassar have they enjoyed a more complete season of participation. In addition to the regular league debates, an affirmative and a negative team were sent to the Fourth Annual Debate Tournament at Flint Cen- tral High School where Vassar met two Pontiac teams, Grosse Point and Flint Beecher. About twenty practice debates were also scheduled. The first elimination debate was held in Vassar with Bad Axe taking the negative side of the question. Margie Schultz, Pauline Thompson and Doris Evans represented Vassar and presented a very good affirmative case, but the Bad Axe team, a group of veterans who had been defeated by Vassar in 1936 and again in 1937, turned the tables and won by a close margin. This defeat officially ended the debating season with the excep- tion of attending the championship debate at Ann Arbor on April 29. At this time the University of Michigan entertained debaters with a speech clinic, demonstration debate. Campus tour and baseball game. Vassar is rapidly gaining a reputation in debating. All this year's de- baters will be back next year. Watch Vassar in the debating circles for 1938-39. P 111 Fifty-fmt? LIBRARY STAFF Top Row-H. Korthals, F. Tanski, M. Davis, V. Lambert.

The Vassar High School library was completely reorganized th's year under the competent supervision of Miss Wellemeyer. Book shelves were entirely rearranged in a definite order. The card index, contain- ing a filing card for each book in the library was checked thoroughly so that each book may be accurately recorded when loaned to students. The library is an essential and extremely important part of the activities of Vassar High School. Students have come to rely upon the library as a source of recreational reading as well as reference material for regular school Work. The staff, although entirely new and inexperi- enced this year, have succeeded in making the library system very effl- cient and orderly. A number of new books were purchased for the library among which were, "Gone With The Wind", "Yang and Yin", "East Wind - West Wind", "The Good Earth", 'iLost Horizon" and "Magnificent Obsession". Many new and interesting books are on the list for next year. Maga- zines, of particular interest to the extra-curricular activities are also be- ing considered. The card catalog, which at present is used only by the library staff, is to be moved into the general session room Where all students may use it. Each student in the high school will be taught the essentials of the filing system so that they will be in a position to use similar systems in other libraries. The library staff wishes to extend their sincere appreciation to their director, Miss Wellemeyer. She has been more than patient with the stumbling efforts of the staff in attempting to become efficient li- brarians. p Pay.: Fift 11-for ACTIVITIES COUNCIL Top Row-C. Gunnell, T.

President Leo Smith Vice-President Sinclair Opperman Secretary and Treasurer Bernadine Schafer In order to finance school activities, to create a better school spirit, to support any project for school improvement, to aid in activities of the school and to offer suggestions for the betterment of the school, the Activities Council continued its existence just as enthuslagtically as in the past years. The members were appointed by the student body as representatives of the four upper classes, football, basketball, baseball de- bate teams and band. These reliable and competent members were under Mr. Brant's able and sympathetic sponsorship. The busfness meetings were conducted in Mr. BranL's office, from 8 to 8:45 on Tuesday morning of each week. Many of this years events will be added to the history of the council, of which the two most profitable were the engagement of Mar- quis the Magician and the two one act plays produced by the dramatics club. The two one act plays were a great success. They were presented to a large audience on February 18. The Music Department also offer- ed assistance for this program. In March, the council sponsored the taking of moving pictures of school activities. These were later shown publicly in the gymnasium. The council also accomplished many other successful events. They had the honor of selecting the assembly committee, of conducting the Award Assembly, of sponsoring a Hallowe'en Dance and program, and appointing capable boys to send to the Rotary Club meetings with Mr. Brant. One of the outstanding services of the council has been to pre- pare a constitution under the leadership of Leo Smith, for a student booster organization. The constitution has been approved by the council. In the event it is approved by the s'udent body, one ticket, showing membership in the organization, will permit participation by the student in many of the school activities at a real saving in comparison to the cost in other years. The council wishes to extend their gratitude and thanks to Mr. Brant and success to all future council members.

ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE Page Fifty-s fflV'T'l, Pa gc The Vassar Archery Club, under the supervision of Mr. Hoyt, was formed January, 1938 and meets each Tuesday and Wednesday during the activity hour. It followed the Leather-Craft Club of the semester before, being made up of some of the previous members. They obtained the material to make their equipment from dues. Their bows are made of hickory, varying from five feet and a half, to six feet long. It was a long procefs taking two to three months unless extra time was spent. The bow string proved a stumbling block to some since twisting it made it too short. They also made and feathered their own arrows, using electric toaster wire carrying an electric current to trim the feather tops. Archery is an age old hobby as well as a sport which one can neither outgrow nor forget once he has learned what it has to offer. The craftsman learns about kinds of woods suitable, the importance of seasoning and drying as well as the use of tools in shaping the material. The sportsman learns how to practice alone, live out of doors, yet how to share with others in competition. The members can tell you all about William Tell and the King's Archers while developing that right aim at the same time. Fair weath- er finds them outside shooting, stormy weather finds them inside shav- ing. All boys and girls interested in becoming members will be welcom- ed by the club.

THE SAFETY PATROL Captain Kenneth Bendeit Lisutenzints Nick Andreychuli Dale Viizterhouse Sponsor Miss Ethel Cottrell The Safety Patrol was organized in Vassar in 1936. It was origi- nally organized in the Detroit Schools in 1916, but has now spread to nearly every state in the Union. The Vassar Patrol boys are leaders not only in safety, but in their studies and deportment. The duty of the Patrol is to caution others in safe practices and to hold children at cross-walks until they can cross safely. The captain has charge of the other patrols and sees that they are on active duty. He sends in a report to the Automobile Club every month. The safety patrol this year has been distinctly honored by the award of a safety trophy by the Automobile Club of Michigan. GIRLS SERVICE SQUAD Captain Joyce Bates Lieutenant Lorraine Snidex Sponsor Miss Florence Reed The purpose of the Girls' Service Squad is to develop a safety attitude toward problems of the home and schoil and to nrvakc those impressions that eventually develop into habits. The duties of the squad are Wide and varied in scope. Cooperat- ing with the faculty, the squad is doing excellent workin regulating hall traffic in the building. The squad also serves as student ushers for all grade assemblies. The girls are to be congratulated on their fine service.

The 1937-38 football season was launched successfully under o.1r new Coach, Mr. Wernet. The team developed nicely and much credit is due Mr. Wernet for his fine coaching. The lettermen returning to back- field positions were Captain Streeter, Smith, Freeland and Honsinger. Those returning to the line were Opperman and Dafoe. Opperman, forced to give up most of the season because of a knee operation, re- turned in time to give a good account of himself in the last two games. We started the season off by defeating a highly touted Mt. Morris team, 32-13. The next Friday we encountered a heavy Sebewaing team for our first home appearance, and won a hard-fought game 6-0. We scored in the third quarter on our favorite play, a pass from Streeter to Dafoe. The game ended with Sebewaing knocking at our goal line. We received our first defeat at the hands of Cass City at their field. Although the game was close for three quarters, we finally lost 27-13. The outstanding play of the game was Smiths interception of a Cass City pass and 80 yard run for a touchdown. We took the next three teams in our stride, Marlette, Sandusky, and Owendale before meeting up with our traditional rival, Caro. The scores were 13-0, 21-0 and 19-0 rezpectively. The big game of the season arrived. We played a heavy and experienced Caro team Nov. 3. Hopes were high, but the Caro power was too great with the game ending 24-0 in their favor. The ffnal game of the season resulted in an upset when an inferior Millington team de- feated an over-confident Vassar team 6-0. A few final figures show we won 5 games and lost 3. -In league play we won 3 and lost 3. Although we flnished 4th in the league, we were in second place two weeks before the finish.

The 1937-38 basketball squad consisting almost entirely of vete- rans of the last year, had bright prospects for a strong team. Although the season was not a spectacular one, the team played good ball through- out the season and the orange and black supporters may be justly proud of their record. The team ended the season with two victories each over Millington, Mayville and Sebewaing, winning once from Cass City, while losing to Caro twice, Cass City, Marlette, Fairgrove, Sandusky and Brown City, each once. One of the best games of the season was played with Cass City on Vassar's home floor. The game went into an overtime period with Vassar finally winning out, 20-19. The Class C and D District Tournament was held at Vassar on March 3, 4 and 5. The only Class C game held on Thursday night, March 3, was between North Branch and Vassar. Although we received plenty of opposition, we defeated them 29-19. On Friday, the second night of the tournament, Vassar was paired with Millington, and Fairgrove with Mayville. Although both games were close, Vassar and Fairgrove emerged the victors and were sched- uled to fight it out Saturday night with the tournament at stake. The game between Vassar and Fairgrove was the outstanding game of the tournament, with both teams fighting for the lead until the final whistle blew. The game ended in a deadlock 26-26. In the over- time period, neither team was able to score, although both came close several times. Officials decided the game by the honor point method. Vassar was awarded five points for making the greater number of field goals, while Fairgrove received three points for making the greater per- centage of foul shots and four points for having the least number of per- sonal fouls. Thus Fairgrove was awarded the extra point giving them the game and the tournament. Page Sixty -thrwe BASEBALL Top Row-J. Miller, L. Curvin, N. Miihlbach, K. Smith, N. VandeBunt, M. Seney, J.

All of last year's team with the exception of two were available this year, and with the help of the new boys the team won their share of the games. The lettermen from last year's team are Captain Opperman, Free- land, Hunkins, Lambert, Streeter, Bates, Rausch, Gunnell and Honsinger. The pitching staff was strong this year consisting of Freeland, Hunkins and Bates, who also plays in the infield. The first game of the season was played at Reese, April 14. The game was close in the first two innings, neither team scoring, but fin- ally the Vassar boys found their batting eye and drove in thirteen runs. The game ended thirteen to nothing. Hunkins, our pitcher allowed Reese only three hits while we collected fifteen. Sebewaing came to visit us for our first home game and although we collected seven hits to their three, errors bv the infield resulted in de- feat. The game ended six to three in their favor. We next played at Fairgrove and returned home the victors by the score of nine to two. We were defeated in the next game by Marlette with a score of six to nothing. Vassar came through the victors in the Frankenmuth game, which was played before an exceptionally large crowd, with the score of six to two. . Other games played were Caro, May 10, Frankenmuth, May 17, Cass City, May 20, all of which were played away, and Millington, May 12, and Mayville, May 26, both of which were home games. Page Sixty-four The 1937 track season was the most successful one in the past several years. Coached by Mr. Lloyd Miller, the team won thc County Track meet, placed a close third in the Upper Thumb, and also placed in the State and Regional meets. In the County Meet we received a large number of firsts. The team took lst, 2nd and 3rd in the 100 and 220 yard dashes, 1st, 3rd and 4th in the broad jump, lsts in the relay race, 440 yd. run and mile run and a number of 2nd, 3rd and 4th places in other events. Caesar Harper, who took three lst and was on the relay team, was one of the fastest men in the state. In Class C competition in the State Meet, Har- per took lst in the 220 yd. dash and 2nd in the 100 yd. dash. The team received two trophies for winning the County track meet r and relay race. Although half of last year's championship team were lost by graduation, the team this year has a good chance and is considered a serious threat in the Upper Thumb and County track meets. The lettermen of last year's champions lost by graduation are: Harper, Tanski, Curvin and Kaspryzk. Bob Dafoe moved to Owen- dale. The lettermen returning this year are Captain Esckelson, Smith, Freeland, Taylor and Jaynes. Added to the group is a fine squad of new boys who promise to make this year's track team one of the best in the history of the school. A great deal of credit is due Mr. Miller for his fine coaching and help. Top Row-L. Esckelson, D. Simpson, M. McIntyre, KL Smith, II. Hecht, H. Gootee. Second J"owfR. Russell, W. Freeland, W.

' TRACK Page Siu-ty-fi The second team had a more successful season than did the var- sity. They began practice several weeks before opening the season with Millington on our home court. Undefeated in the first two games with Millington and Fairgrove respectively they were spurred on to re-double their efforts in the remaining games of which six were played on the home court. They won ten of their fourteen games, defeating Millington, Fairgrove, Sandusky and Caro each once and Mayville, Cass City and Sebewaing, each twice, while losing to Marlette, Millington, Caro and Brown City each once. The usual line-up was: Heusted, left-guardg Inscho, right-guard, Lambert, centerg McIntyre, right-forewardg Tremonti, right-forewardg Franko, left-forewardg Bauer, left-forewardg and Freeland left-foreward The most outstanding game near the close of the season was with Caro on our own court. The hard-fought game resulted in victory. The closing game of the season was with Brown City, February 22. The scores for the games played on the home court were: Vassar 12, Millington 105 Vassar 11, Marlette 22, Vassar 10, Cass City 8g Vas- sar 22, Sebewaing 6, Vassar 12, Millington 13g Vassar 22, Caro 16. Those played away Were: Vassar 12, Fairgrove 123 Vassar 14, Mayville 10: Vassar 40, Sebewaing 85 Vassar 23, Caro 263 Vassar 13, Cass City 12: Vassar 29, Mayville 125 Vassar 15, Sandusky 93 and Vassar 14, Brown City 223 making a total of two hundred forty-nine for Vassar and one hundred seventy-six for opponents. With most of these boys returning for next year's varsity material, the outlook for 1938-39 is very bright. Top Row-W. Freeland, M. McIntyre, N. Miihlbach, S. Dutz, Mr. Wernet. Bottom Row-C.

BASKET BALL RESERVES Page Sixty-sian l INTRA- MURAL It is the purpose of the athletic department of the Vassar High School to provide an opportunity for every boy and girl to take part in some form of athletic activity. Our intramural program consists of basketball, basketball foul shooting, volleyball, ping-pong, checkers, softball, tennis, track and horseshoes. Awards are given to the winning teams or individuals in the dif- ferent activities. In basketball, volleyball, ping-pong and checkers a practice series of games is played before the elimination contest takes place. The indoor intramural program is climaxed by Intramural Play Night which is held about the end of March. At this time an exhibition of the work of the various gym classes is given and the finals of all in- door games are played. This year's winners of the different contests were: girls' basketball, Seniorsg boys' basketball, Freshmen, ping-pong for girls, singles, Margaret Akiiisg doubles, Charlotte Whitcomb and Marion Bader, ping-pong for boys, singles, Conrad Gunnellg doubles, Grant Bates and Conrad Gunnell. George Edd Sevener of the Fresh- man class Won the foul shooting contest by making fourteen baskets out of twenty-five tries. The volleyball was Won by the Junior boys, who Won all three games played. The boys' checker tournament was Won by Grant Bates. Early in May the school field and track meet is held and the Win- ners of the different events represent Vassar on its varsity field and track team. In softball, tennis, and horseshoes an elimination series is played, leading up to our school Play-day at the end of the year. Approximately one-hundred and fifty students have taken part in the contetsts this year.

It was revived in June, 1936 when the class of 1933 sponsored a banquet for the Alumni. About one hundred grad- uates of Vassar High School attended and elected officers for the organ- ization for the coming year. The officers elected were: Shurley Mc- Intyre, president, Carson Atkins, vice-president, Mrs. Kenneth Priestley, secretary, Mrs. Wil-iam O'Dell, treasurer. It was decided at this meeting that each year the Alumni activities would be climaxed by a dinner dance to be held the first week after graduation each year, so that the last graduating class could take part. It was learned at this meeting that members of the class of 1885 had circulated a round robin letter which was circulated between the ten remaining members of the class. Miss Ella North represented the oldest class present. In 1937 about one hundred and fifty graduates attended the ban- quet and dance which was held in the new auditorium of the Vassar High School. At this meeting a letter was read which had been received from Hiram Sturges, now a prominent attorney in Omaha, Nebraska, who is the only living member of the class of 1907. Miss Ella North again rep- resented the class of 1873, while Mrs. Ida Wells and Mrs. Lena Wight- man represented the class of 1884. Officers for the comizg year were elected as follows: President, Irma Gruber, vice-president, Lewis Garner, secretary, Gretchen Haines, treasurer, Glenn Miller. On June 10 of this year, The Alumni Association is again sponsor- ing its annual banquet and dinner-dance. The Assoc'ation extends a cordial welcome to all alumni of Vassar Public Schools to attend this meeting. This will be an opportunity to not only greet old friends, but to welcome the class of 1938 as well. The Class of 1938 wishes much success to the Association of which they will soon become members and sincerely hope that their fine efforts will continue to make a bigger and better Alumni Organization in the years to come.
