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.

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.

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- 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.
