PRESENTATIONBY WAY OF INTRODUCTION
A Preview Of Life At Stevensville
Ty E student life at S. H. S. never has a dull moment. This you shall see in the
pages of this annual. For there are always many activities going on, he they cur-
ricular, extra curricular or otherwise.
With the opening of the doors in the morning, the school comes to life. Many
things occupy the student in S. H. S. If it isn’t a current fad, it's something else—
Softball, a play; a senior play or the faculty, minstrel shows, basketball, operetta, state
tournaments, grade tournaments, basketball banquet, Junior play, track, and so on
until the year comes to a close with commencement week and graduation.
S. H. S. is very enthusiastic about athletics with most of the students participating
on basketball, softball, and track teams.
S. H. S. is also very musical, having a Glee Club of hoys and girls, and a forty
piece band and orchestra. The Glee Club was represented by twelve girls in the
County Music Festival, which was held in St. Joseph. Nobel Cain, the noted music
supervisor from Chicago, was the director.
Boys’ and girls’ 4-H is popular here. The boys’ 4-H have built a work shop in
the school. They make worth-while things—bookcases, desks, stands, etc. The girls’
4-H meets tw:ce a week in the sewing room. They make dresses, aprons, towels, etc.
pane twoAnother thing the students enjoy are movies. They have them, usually, once a
week, now that the P. T. A. has bought a projector. They see movies about Citrus
Fruits, Railway Express and Airway, stories of the Mississippi River, Baking Bread,
Travel by Greyhound, etc.—all educational and interesting films. Occasionally the
students enjoy the antics of an “Our Gang Comedy.”
Our Student body is an enthusiastic, tireless, alert group, as you will note as
the following pages explain and give you a clear picture of sudent life at S. H. S.
The smooth functioning of any organization depends largely upon the per-
sonalities who head that organization. 1 he responsibilities of a board of education
require clear, progressive thinking, aggressiveness tempered with purposeful plan-
ning, open-mindedness to new ideas with conservatism in regard to their acceptance.
Through the superintendent, acting as a coordinator between this body and the

teachers, the standards and policies of the board of education are transmitted to the
latter group and become the foundation on which the academic program is built.
The board of education, too, usually through the superintendent and faculty
committees, must be kept aware of changing educational needs of the community,
that the curriculum offered may keep pace with community development and edit

store of memories.
Now as we Seniors stand on the threshold of a new life, those tour years in
high school were the happiest we have known.
Ah! How distinctly 1 remember that first year. There had been sixteen of us.
All were eager, green Freshmen—so the upperclassmen called us—Maxine Bujack,
THOSE FOUR YEARS AT S. H. S.
Caroline Bodjack, Frank Cupp, Katherine Krajacic, Jack Dehring, Joe Krejci,
Arnold Schulz, Claire Quardokus, Evelyn Schneider, Harold Markwald, Edgar
Lockwitz, Evelyn Totzke, Alice Leonard, Irene Rochau, and Tom Oles.
Following the custom of the upperclasses, we held a meeting and elected Frank
Cupp as President; Vice President, Jack Dchring; and Katherine Krajacic, Secretary
As usual, the year passed by and was climaxed with a picnic at Indian Lake,
the favorite haunt.
With the rapid approach of September, we assembled for the second time,
for our second year of high school, which made us Sophomores, in the assembly of
Stevensville High School.
Our number had diminished considerably. Alice Leonard had left us for the
sunny shores of Florida. Alas! Tom Oles never came back. Claire Quardokus,
page sixEvelyn Schneider, and Arnold Getz decided that St. Joseph should fall heir to
their presence and Irene Rochau simply left us.
We immediately elected our officers, who were: President, Maxine Bujack;
Vice President, Katherine Krajacic; and Secretary and Treasurer, Evelyn Totzke.
Falling into the routine of studying, learning, and thinking, ihe year rapidly
came to a close. Except for initiating the new Freshmen (a fate we too had suffered),
though fortunately the upperclassmen had been lenient) the year passed hy une-
Ah! the third year came and we were proud Juniors. Clarence Uher came to
swell our ranks to eleven. We honored Edgar Lockwitz with the presidency; Frank
Cupp became vice president, and Katherine Krajacic held the purse strings.
Again we initiated another group of Freshmen and then buckled down to work.
We did work, for we had an incentive. This was the year when the annual Junior
play was presented. So we went into a huddle and came out with “Oh! Aunt Je-
tusha,” co-starring Katherine Krajacic and Arnold Schulz. The play was a huge
success and we finished the year feeling quite proud of ourselves. We picnicked at
Our last year finally arrived on the wings of time and we stood, eleven Seniors.
With the new year came a change in our faculty. Miss Thursby came to teach
English and to advise the staff of the school paper and annual. Mr. Barkmeier
taught U. S. History and the commercial subjects.
Early in November we presented “The Blue Bag” and made the usual Senior
silk quilt. And so the days rolled by. Full of study, fun, and work. And at last the
culmination of the ambition of every Senior—commencement.

The Junior Class this year is made up of fifteen members: seven girls and
eight boys. The class lost one member this year but gained two new members by
the promotion of Adeline Friesl and Norma Siewert who are making it in three
years. They have an old classmate back in the fold—Albino DaDan has returned
to Alma Mater. The class activities have been greatly divided this year as each mem-
ber has gone his or her own way in search of the knowledge and social activities
to round out his or her life. There has been one activity, however, which has been
enjoyed by all the members of the class—their dramatic production of “Dottv and
Daffy” under the direction of Miss Thursby.
Our Class President is the well-known and efficient holdover from last year.
Joe Bodjack. His cabinet members are as follows: Vice President, J. Jung; Secretary,
Marie Davis; and our Treasurer, Elaine Fuzak.
TliE Sophomore ('lass has twenty-three members. Its President is Dick Fritz;
Vice President, Helmut Pioske; and Secretary and Treasurer, Ralph Kolberg. The
class is active in sports and music. When we are seniors we hope to have a great
basketball team. A number from the class belong to the Glee Clubs, Band and
Orchestra, and some of the students had leading roles in the Operetta.
We helped in giving school parties. One of these parties was a welcome to the
Freshmen. When we started to High Sch x l as Freshmen, we had thirty-one in our
class, but in our second year some had left school or had moved away. Nevertheless,
well keep right on going for we're sure to be successful if we try by perseverance and
A congenial, lively group are the Sophomores; and they will succeed.

student council. This council was composed of three students from the eighth grade,
two from the seventh, one from the sixth, and Mr. Eccles. Each had one vote in
forming rules and regulations for the room.
The seventh and eighth Current Events class which met once a week, settled
troubles of the world, at least in their own minds.
The noon hours this year were spent in the gym with the organization of an
intramural league, in which four girl teams and six boy teams took part.
The third, fourth and fifth grades compose the Intermediate Room. Here the
children get their introduction to the study of geography and history. In order to
create an interest in history, exciting stories are read to the children with numerous
pictures of each phase of it.
The four fundamentals of arithmetic: addition, subtraction, multiplication,
and division are learned in these grades, and the children have their first experience
The subject of major importance in the Primary Room is reading.
In connection with language, units are developed to impress, more deeply,
certain characteristics of the various peoples in the minds of the pupils.
Parents may wonder why the ABC’s aren’t taught as soon as the child enters
school. The new reading method of associating word with pictures and the study
of phonics, postpones the necessity of knowing the alphabet until the child is ready

pa je fifteenBoys and girls constitute the (dee Cluh under the direction of Mrs. Clara
Myers. They have accomplished a great deal in chorus work. During the year they
furnish music for a wide variety of programs. In conjunction with the Band and
Orchestra they sponsored the Christmas Program.
The Band and Orchestra is under the leadership of Mr. Null. The main event
of the year was the “Cotton Club” minstrel show. The Band contributed a series of
concerts which took place during the summer. The Township Board bought the
Band colorful uniforms to wear for their concerts.
The Orchestra is also at the school's disposal and they play at any time they are
Both Band and Orchestra are participating in the County Festival that is to
be given in May.
Under the direction of Mrs. Myers, the music supervisor, the annual operetta
was presented. The operetta was a beautiful gypsy story—the scene was Carnival
time in Vienna, the time of the year when Lady Vivian (Kay K.) returns to Vienna
in search of her daughter lost since infancy. Chief Kinske (G. Hass) invented a
plan to deceive Lady Vivian in finding a daughter for her—a waitress—Louisa
(Adeline Friesl). Louisa humorously blundered the plot—and Ilona (Frances W.)
supposedly the daughter of the gypsy Jigo (A. Cupp) proved herself Lady Vivian’s
long lost daughter by the accidental presence of a locket.
Other major parts were played by Joe Bodjack, William Posch, Maxine Bujack,
Jordon Jung, Helmut Pioske, Leon Mielke, and a chorus of girls and boys.

paye serenteenThe Blue Bag and the Hillbilly Courtship
A. hotel, in the center of nowhere, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Macklyn, (Arnold
Schulz and Kay Krajacic), is the setting for the mystery of “The Blue Bag.” First
to arrive at the hotel in search of a blue bag are Anton (lack Dehring) and his
chauffeur (Edgar Lockwitz), who falls in love with the Macklyns’ maid, Chatta-
nooga (Caroline Bodjack). They are followed by a young couple of elopers, Allan
(Clarence Uher) and Enid (Evelyn Totzke); Letty Long an actress (Maxine Bu-
jack). under an assumed name; Jim and Molly Keefer (Frank Cupp and Joe
Krejci), a pair of thugs. All of the ladies are carrying blue bags and when Bill Har-
rington, detective (Harold Markwald), arrives in search of a blue bag containing
jewels, he has a fine time finding them. He finally finds them and the story ends
happily with Jim and Molly under arrest and Bill Harrington in love with Letty
Long; Allan and Enid, and George and Chattanooga married; and Mr. and Mrs.
Macklyn after many “scraps" finally reconcile on their silver wedding anniversary.
A week later the faculty presented “The Hillybilly Courtship,” a play of the
Ozark Mountains, for the raising of funds to purchase new stage scenery. This
hilarious comedy was presented to a capacity crowd of four hundred on November
The story concerned a feud in the Ozarks. The play offered opportunity for
character work and this was done very well. The cast ranged in types of personalities
as follows: Ma Peppin, a feudin’ hillbilly mother—Mrs. Myers; Emmy Peppin, her
daughter and the flower of the hills—Mrs. Smith; Pappy Stilsby, the old-type feudin',
up and at ’em hillbilly—Mr. Shearer; the radio hillbillies—Mrs. Shearer and Miss
page eighteenThursby; the mountain nitwit—Mr. Smith; the Jewish manager of the radio sing-
ers—Mr. Null; a temperamental Italian in search of a wife—Mr. Barkmeier; an
Irish colleen in search of a husband—Miss Sabjan; Luke, the son of Pappy and in
love with Emmy—Mr. Eccles; and the Reverend who does the marrying—Mr.
St rouse, even Pappy and Ma Peppin, who “bury the hatchet.”
page vincte™N the fall, with the opening of school, the organization ol the newspaper staff
takes place. This year Evelyn Tot .ke and Katherine Krajacu were chosen Co l.dit-
ors because of their previous experience in newspaper work. 'The staff was some-
what lacking in experience but they made up for this deficiency with enthusiasm
and as the year progressed, they gained in experience.

Karly in November, the National Scholastic Press Association Convention
held in Chicago, at the Stevens Hotel. The Co-Editors, chaperoned by Miss Thursby,
attended this worth-while meeting all the three days. They received many helpful
ideas and suggestions which they began to put to work upon returning home. As a
result, we saw a different type front page and headline, new feature columns, and
more illustrations in the advertisements. All of these added variety and interest.
Closely akin to our newspaper work is our work on the Annual. I'his Annual
is a tremendous project for a school of our size, but we have attempted to come
pin r twentythrough with Hying colors. However, with each year comes the problem of deciding
just who is to do the printing, engraving, and such as that. We gave our contracts
to Jahn Ollier Company, Qillege Print Shop, and Mr. Frank. The making of
an annual is not an easy, but rather a difficult task, which takes time and work by
the staff members. One of the first steps after the pictures have returned from the
photographer is to cut them to a certain specified size. This is sometimes difficult
and it ends in a debate as to whether to cut off all the excess from the feet or from
the top. 1 he catastrophe of the year happened when we snipped off the heads of the
Juniors and had to send for a new picture of them. The next step is the mounting
of the pictures. The space is then marked off on white paper. Rubber cement (an
adhesive material especially suited for this work) is then applied over the entire
surface and the picture is placed in the proper place. All excess rubber cement which
might cling to the edges is easily rubbed off. The only disadvantage of working with
this material is the penetrating odor which is disagreeable.
After the pictures have been mounted and sent off to the engravers, we set
about writing the stories. Here the work is more evenly divided and each has his
assigned story to write. The major task then falls upon the shoulders of the Co-Edit-
ors when the typing is done. So many words to a line, so many spaces for this,
and so on are the thoughts running through their minds. When this is done, our
work is done. We hate to see our journalistic year come to a close, hut it has been
a worth-while one. We are looking forward eagerly to a new year.

On November 1. 1939, a group of green gangling youths reported to Coach
Shearer for the first workout of the 1939-40 basketball season. With only two having
varsity experience and one of them becoming ineligible after Christmas and con-
fronted with a tough 17-game schedule, the outlook was anything but bright.
However, after a month of practice a functioning five emerged from the nebular
mass. This group gave a creditable account of themselves up to the last game before
Christmas, winning two and losing three by close margins. Then came the debacle.
Due for his last appearance, Edgar Lockwitz injured his ankle before the Baroda
game and was unable to play. Joe Bodjack suffered a like injury, and deprived of
two stellar defensive men, Baroda took us for the first time in years and years.
Late in the season, with a record of only three wins in twelve games, the in-
experienced Cardinals came to life and won four out of the five games remaining
pufie twenty-twoon our schedule, the one loss being an overtime game with Berrien Springs, Class C
District Champion. Winning only seven of our seventeen games, we nevertheless
had the unusual satisfaction of having outscored our opponents 433-421.
Carrying on the inspired play, the Cardinals won the District Championship
with successive victories over Eau Claire and St. John’s Catholic at Dowagiac.
Our surprising victory string was broken by a smooth functioning, smart and
fast Burr Oak team in the semi-finals of the Regional Tournament at St. Joseph.
With only two losses to the present squad by graduation, prospects look bright for

During the season's play the team broke even in scheduled play with 4 wins

We held practice once a week. The grade girls played with us and then we or-

We even played games with the Alumni and usually won.

... we bring our narrative to a close. It is with a great deal 1 regret that we do this.
As we look back over these pages we are reminded of the fun—as well as the work
—we had in putting them together. Too, we are reminded, rather poignantly, by
these pages depicting the story of the year’s achievement, that this little book repre-
sents, perhaps, our last cooperative effort in a journalistic and h;stor cal venture. 1 hat
makes us sad, for we truly have enjoyed the serious exchange of ideas as well as the
banter and sparkling repartee of those who have combined to produce this annual.
True, we have had our points and periods of disappointment and d’sagreement, but,
as this publication must indicate, those individual differences have been amicably
ironed out and the book is the better and the experience the richer because of those
Outside of the staff there have been many people who have devoted much of
their time to helping us, and to those loyal people and to our subscribers and adver-
tisers and all others who helped make our venture successful, we want to express our
We who have had to do with the production recognize the imperfection of this
volume, but sincerely hope that its reading will be as enjoyable to you as its making
has been to us.
In this book we have written about the year at high school, illustrated with pic-
tures and snapshots. The Seniors have told us about their four years at S.H.S. Activ-
ptigr ticentjf-sixities have been discussed, plays have been reviewed, teams have been pictured, Band
and Orchestra, the tamed faculty play, and so on right through the book. It has
been fun and regrets are felt, but all things end and we students will always remem-
ber—Life is simply a matter of concentration; you are what you set out to be. The
things you read are the things you become tomorrow. You are a composite of the
things you say, the books you read, the thoughts you think, the company you keep,
and the things you desire to become.
