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.

The activities of the organization are large in number. The "Junior Farmer Week" is the mcst important and the one most looked forward to. Each year in May all members go to East Lansing and compete in judging contests. The annual summer trip is another activity of importance. Trips taken thus far have been to Traverse City, Houghton Lake, Lake City, and Benton Harbo1'. Estab- lishment of the Tuscola County F. F. A. was directed and started by the Vassar Chapter. The annual Community Fair, sponsored by the F. F. A., is usually held for two days in the latter part cf November. The important com- mittees of the fair are the Entry, Premium, Program, Advertising, Rules and Regulations, and Clean-up committees. The General Chairman is overseer of the various committees. The annual Parents' Banquet is held in March. It is for the pur- pose of showing appreciation for the fine cooperation of the parents in allowing the boys to carry on projects. It also marks the official closing of the projects for the past year and the beginning of projects for the ensuing yea1'. The aims of the F. F. A. are to better farming condftions and to help the farmers of thi: community solve their problems.. It develops leadership among the boys and teaclzes them cooperation, thrift and re- sponsibility.

Page of boys who were interested in short of what is now Vassar Radio Club. of 1936 they found that the new science interested in this branch of science. 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.
