One of the best ways to judge
the spirit of a school is to see the
cross-section of an assembly. The assembly is the meeting place of the
entire student body and faculty and
it should serve as a socializing unit.
The assembly committee is composed of one member from each
of the four upper grades. These are

In order to finance school activities, to create a better school spirit,
to support any project for school improvement, to aid in activities of the
school and to offer suggestions for the betterment of the school, the
Activities Council continued its existence just as enthuslagtically as in
the past years. The members were appointed by the student body as
representatives of the four upper classes, football, basketball, baseball de-
bate teams and band. These reliable and competent members were under
Mr. Brant's able and sympathetic sponsorship. The busfness meetings
were conducted in Mr. BranL's office, from 8 to 8:45 on Tuesday morning
of each week.
Many of this years events will be added to the history of the
council, of which the two most profitable were the engagement of Mar-
quis the Magician and the two one act plays produced by the dramatics
club. The two one act plays were a great success. They were presented
to a large audience on February 18. The Music Department also offer-
ed assistance for this program.
In March, the council sponsored the taking of moving pictures of
school activities. These were later shown publicly in the gymnasium.
The council also accomplished many other successful events. They
had the honor of selecting the assembly committee, of conducting the
Award Assembly, of sponsoring a Hallowe'en Dance and program, and
appointing capable boys to send to the Rotary Club meetings with Mr.
One of the outstanding services of the council has been to pre-
pare a constitution under the leadership of Leo Smith, for a student
booster organization. The constitution has been approved by the council.
In the event it is approved by the s'udent body, one ticket, showing
membership in the organization, will permit participation by the student
in many of the school activities at a real saving in comparison to the
cost in other years.
The council wishes to extend their gratitude and thanks to Mr.
Brant and success to all future council members.

The Vassar Archery Club, under the supervision of Mr. Hoyt, was
formed January, 1938 and meets each Tuesday and Wednesday during
the activity hour. It followed the Leather-Craft Club of the semester
before, being made up of some of the previous members.
They obtained the material to make their equipment from dues.
Their bows are made of hickory, varying from five feet and a half, to
six feet long. It was a long procefs taking two to three months unless
extra time was spent. The bow string proved a stumbling block to some
since twisting it made it too short. They also made and feathered their
own arrows, using electric toaster wire carrying an electric current to
trim the feather tops.
Archery is an age old hobby as well as a sport which one can
neither outgrow nor forget once he has learned what it has to offer.
The craftsman learns about kinds of woods suitable, the importance of
seasoning and drying as well as the use of tools in shaping the material.
The sportsman learns how to practice alone, live out of doors, yet how
to share with others in competition.
The members can tell you all about William Tell and the King's
Archers while developing that right aim at the same time. Fair weath-
er finds them outside shooting, stormy weather finds them inside shav-
ing. All boys and girls interested in becoming members will be welcom-
ed by the club.
