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.

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

The Safety Patrol was organized in Vassar in 1936. It was origi-
nally organized in the Detroit Schools in 1916, but has now spread to
nearly every state in the Union.
The Vassar Patrol boys are leaders not only in safety, but in their
studies and deportment. The duty of the Patrol is to caution others in
safe practices and to hold children at cross-walks until they can cross
safely. The captain has charge of the other patrols and sees that they
are on active duty. He sends in a report to the Automobile Club every
month. The safety patrol this year has been distinctly honored by the
award of a safety trophy by the Automobile Club of Michigan.
