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
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
The club has now purchased a professional Hallicrafter Radio Re-

The purpose of Radio Club is to work toward obtaining an ama-

the faculty who patiently refrained from complaining of the odd noise.:

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

In the fall of 1938, under the able leadership of Mr. Yonker, the
Vassar Camera Club was organized. 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-
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.
