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.

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 Vassar Girl Reserves Club was organized October 26, 1937, under the direction of Miss W'oodman. 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.
