President Delphine Oss Secretary-Treasurer Famelia Tanski Sponsor Miss Woodman The Vassar Players, the dramatics club of the high school, is one of the youngest clubs of the school, having been organized in November 17, of this school year. It had twelve charter members participating in its organization. The club presented at the Christmas assembly two plays, "The Last Christmas", and "The Guest at the Inn." It has also sponsored two one-act plays for the benefit of the Activities Council. These plays were "Not Quite Such a Goose," and "The Valiant". "The Valiant" was later presented in an assembly at Cass City where it was well received. At an assembly in May 9, brief scene entitled "Derelict" was pre- sented. The last project of the year for the Club was the production of two plays that were presented at an evening performance for their par- ents and invited guests. The plays are "The Patchwork Quilt" and "Two Crooks and a Lady." The aim of the club is to familiarize the members with the funda- mental principles of dramatics, to develop and maintain an interest in the dramatic art, and give actual experience in play-acting and play-mana- gement of the members. Any student of Vassar High School is eligible for membership. Page Fifty-Ihre

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.

DEBATE D. Evans, I. Braido, Mr. Hamilton, P. Thompson, M, Schultz The debate team of 1938, d,.Le to the graduation of its former members, was a team composed of all new members. The question for debate this year in all the High Schools in Michigan was Resolved: "That the several states should adopt a unicameral form of legislation." Vassar, taking the affirmative, won over Flint Bendle and Lapeer by unanimous decisions. She then debated on the negative side, losing a two to one decision to Flint Beecher, but winning over Swartz Creek, thereby making a total of thiiteen points. This put the team in the elimination series and upheld the record of Winning a wall plaque every year for the past three years. In addition to a wall plaque for the school, through the courtesy of the Detroit Free Press, all participants in elimination debates received a pin or lapel button. The school also gives a pin to debaters of merit who complete a successful season. Probably in no year since Mr. Hamilton has been coaching the debating teams of Vassar have they enjoyed a more complete season of participation. In addition to the regular league debates, an affirmative and a negative team were sent to the Fourth Annual Debate Tournament at Flint Cen- tral High School where Vassar met two Pontiac teams, Grosse Point and Flint Beecher. About twenty practice debates were also scheduled. The first elimination debate was held in Vassar with Bad Axe taking the negative side of the question. Margie Schultz, Pauline Thompson and Doris Evans represented Vassar and presented a very good affirmative case, but the Bad Axe team, a group of veterans who had been defeated by Vassar in 1936 and again in 1937, turned the tables and won by a close margin. This defeat officially ended the debating season with the excep- tion of attending the championship debate at Ann Arbor on April 29. At this time the University of Michigan entertained debaters with a speech clinic, demonstration debate. Campus tour and baseball game. Vassar is rapidly gaining a reputation in debating. All this year's de- baters will be back next year. Watch Vassar in the debating circles for 1938-39. P 111 Fifty-fmt?
