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

The Seco club is the Home Economics club of Vassar High School. 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.
