19 4 1 CARDINAL PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENT BODY OF STEVENSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL STEVENSVILLE, MICHIGANSCHOOL BOARD The membership of the Stevensville School Board has not changed within the last year. The members are as follows: Mr. Wishart.......................................President Mr. Howard........................................Secretary Mr. Bartz.........................................Treasurer Mrs. Wach...........................................Trustee Mrs. Mongrieg.......................................Trustee This has been a busy year for the Board as they have completed many worth-while projects, such as: redecorating the entire school building, refinishing the basketball fioor, furnishing the playground with equipment for the grade children, furnishing the material from which the ping-pong tables were made. Because of the increased en- rollment of students at Stevensville last fall, the Board furnished new desks and the old ones were refimshed by N.Y.A. students The School Board also gives financial aid when necessary to the annual staff for its publication. Meetings of the School Board are held regularly on the fourth Monday of every month. In these meetings the members discuss such things as: the hiring of the teachers, which teachers will remain teach- ing for the coming term, problems arising from local circumstances, apportionment of money, and such similar administrative functions. The School Board has granted certain privileges to the students of Stevensville High this year that have not been granted other years. These have included such things as playing ping-pong during the noon hour, and dancing in the school during noon hours and after basketball games.OUR FACULTY AT S. H. S. MR.

The chief purpose of a school is to prepare the student for his place in life. By means of an education, he is better able to assume his duty as an active citizen in a democracy. In order to interpret certain phases of educational work, trips are taken and certain projects are performed. For example, history becomes more alive if we are able to have actual dramatizations of important scenes. The death of Caesar and the famous speeches of Antony and Brutus become more real if portrayed. Chemistry and Physics take on new meanings when the student actually sees the brown ring form in a nitrate test or actually smells the odor of hydrogen sulphide. He is more able to comprehend the scientific development in the modern world if he sees them portrayed in panoramic form by a visit to scientific centers. page fourTHEIR PLACES IN LIFE Practice makes perfect and also permanent, so it Holds true in relationship to commercial courses. It is only by patient endeavor that the student attains skill in typing and in shorthand. Thus the quality of patience is stressed. In English courses the skill of reading well with a rapid rate and with comprehension is stressed. Work is also done along the lines of speaking well and correctly. To stress the phases of political life and of participation in government of the people, Civics, United States Govern- ment, and Economics are taught. Here trips are taken to the polls at election time, and time is spent in studying ballots and such important phases of one's active membership in society. All in all, the school blends its curriculum into one in- tegral unit intended primarily to meet and to satisfy the needs of the students. paije fiveBLUE AND SILVER CLASS FLOWER LILY OF THE VALLEY page sisTHE SENIORS Joseph Bodjack "Joe" He has dark hair And a friendly smile.

H. S. door. Oh yes, we were Freshmen, shy and timid but very proud. Slowly one of the "dare devils" from the class opened the high school door and we immediately found seats next to each other. There were Marilyn Griffendorf, Ruth Rothermel, sitting by her sister Helen, Grover Mielke, Arthur Raab, Raymond Engler, Marie Davis, Warren Schultz, Emma Fausak, Chester Mischke, Elaine Fuzak, Jordon Jung, Stella Albright, Margaret Lockwitz, Gordon Ott, Julia Zelko, and Joe Bodjack. We set up our organization and chose Marie Davis, President; Grover Mielke, Vice President; and Marilyn Griffendorf, Secretary and Treasurer. We received and re- turned a party by the Sophomore class and closed the year with a picnic at Indian Lake. The following year we did not pause at the door, because our real task as Freshmen was completed A change in the lineup left us without Marilyn Griffendorf and Warren Schultz. However, Gerald Haas joined us and that left us a total of fifteen class members. Our officers were Joe Bodjack, President; Jordon Jung, Vice Presi- dent; Marie Davis, Secretary; and Grover Mielke, Treasurer. In our Junior year we lost one member, Gordon Ott, but Bino Da Dan came back to Alma Mater, and Norma Siewert and Adeline Fries! were promoted to the Senior class. We presented our play "Dotty and Daffy." We also ordered class rings. Seniors, at last! When we called roll, we found that Chester Mischke had left us, but we had several new members: Lizabeth Gorske, Mary Jane Pooch, and Margaret Holland. We immediately started plans for raising money for our trip to Washington, D. C. page eight---THEIR WILL--- We, the graduating class of 1941, being of unsound mind, as usual, do hereby will and bequeath the following in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and forty-one: First, we leave the faculty the peace and calm that are always prevalent after a storm has passed. Second, we leave the Junior class our sympathy and prayers as they approach seniorhood, for we know they will need them. Third, we leave to the combined classes of Sophomores and Freshmen the consoling thought that that was the way we got our start. Fourth, to the Alma Mater we leave the sincere hope that all future classes will be as brilliant and as gloriously undignified as we have been. Individually, we bequeath our most brilliant traits of characters as follows: Bino Da Dan's whiskers to Maxwell Elsasser. Arthur Raab's ability to play basketball to John Vergot. Gerald Hass' height to Donald Rothermel. Mary Jane Pooch's athletic ability to Virginia DeFord. Margaret Holland's southern accent to Helmut Pioske. Ruth Rothermel's giggles to Doris Kettlehut. Lizabeth Gorske's lone history class to the Junior class. Joe Bodjack's physique to Bert Klackle. Helen Rothermel's quietness to Mary Dehring. Elaine Fuzak's studiousness to Eleanor Kutz. Adeline Friesl's dancing ability to Leon Mielke. Marie Davis' executive ability to Joyce Kolberg. Norma Siewert's position as staff artist to Dorothy Fiedler. Margaret Lockwitz's height to Louise Davis. Grover Mielke's neatness to Marshall Ott. Jordon Jung's intelligence to Raymond Siewert.- - - AND PROPHECY We now interrupt this television broadcast to show you and tell you about a reunion of sixteen famous persons. They are not known as the class of "41" to the public, but as the best persons in their fields of work. Many of them have not seen their classmates during those past ten years and they are the happiest of the class. But now the last member is arriving and in they go for the reunion dinner. While they are eating, allow me to read to you what these old classmates are doing today. Helen Rothermel has become a first-class secretary to a foremost filibusterer. Elaine Fuzak is the first woman explorer to fly on all her explorations in the great South American jungle, Cuba, and the U. S. Norma Siewert is a great beautician, and is giving our fourth-term president a finger wave. Mary Jane Pooch is the toughest newspaper woman to ever get the woman's title for Boxing. Jordon Jung is very busy, as Chief Engineer in charge of the construction of new naval bases in the Pacific. Adeline Friesl is the owner of America's Biggest Beauty Academy. Lizabeth Gorske holds the position as a bookkeeper at Emlong's, the World's Largest Nurseries. Mar- garet Lockwitz is a great beautician. Grover Mielke is building the bridge across the Straits of Machinae. Joe Bodjack is the "Big Shot" behind America's largest chain stores. His prices have upset all the trades in this country. He sells anything from pretzels to battleships. Marie Davis is in charge of the drafting room of a large automobile factory. Her new styles have met with great success throughout the U. S. and the rest of the world. Margaret Hol- land is one of America's most popular woman flyers. She owns her own plane and her experience as an American Airline Stewardess has made her the flier that she is today. Gerald Haas has been made a member of the F. B. I Arthur Raab is a pilot in the Army Air Corps. Ruth Rothermel is a comedian on the Baby Snooks program. Bino Da Dan is Chicago's greatest District Attorney. All of us have to admire this class. They chose for their class motto these three words, "Nothing Without Work " They have all worked hard to be what they are. They know what it means to work hard and found it out during their senior year. page tenJUNIORS President—Leon Mielke Vice President—Bill Posch Sec retary-Treasurer—Dorothy F iedler Name Nickname Hobby Destiny Austin Cupp “Aust” Mary Dehring “Dehring Evelyn DeMorrow “Eve” Maxwell Elsasser “Max” Dorothy Fiedler “Dote” Harold Fisher “Fisher” Richard Fritz “Dick” Gerald Gast “Romeo” Luella Geisler “La” Walter Huebner “Woody” Genevieve Jonatzke “Genn” Joyce Kolbcrg “Joy” Ralph Kolbcrg “Mouse” Frank Krajacic “Sticks” Eleanor Kutz “Kutz” Arthur Lockwitz “Art” Leon Mielke William Posch “Blimp” “Willie” Helmut Pioske “Dutch” Ernest Siewert “Ernie” Raymond Siewert Dorothy Schoenfelder Frances Wickwirc “Ray” “Shoney” “Wick ic” Hunting Business man Horseback riding Secretary Sewing Beautician Clowning Comedian Hitch-hiking Nurse Construction Engineer Hunting Aviation Fishing Graveyard Studying Stenographer Pipes Store owner Chewing gum Housewife Sewing Stenographer A girl Musician Eating W.

The children sanded the tops of their desks and some of the 4-H boys stained and varnished them with material that was furnished by the school. A w nter program of supervised play in which most of the children participated, was carried out in the gymnasium during the noon hour. During the year, good citizenship was our goal. Through regular current event classes we tried to understand a little of the world affairs. INTERMEDIATE The Intermediate Room includes grades three, four, and five. In addition to learning the three R's, the children now have regular classes in geography and language. They must learn how to study and attack problems by themselves. Supplementary work in science is done by each of the grades. This year the third grade is making a book of nature stories with exercises for each story. Current events are derived from the "Weekly Reader." Standardized reading tests are given several times during the year for a check of the children's progress. In that way we learn what child's reading needs attention. PRIMARY The Primary Room consists of the beginners, first and second grades. This year there has been a considerable increase in the en- rollment and because of the resulting crowded conditions, a new plan has been in operation. The beginners and second grade are present in the morning and the first and second grade in the afternoon. Reading, writing, arithmetic, language, phonics, spelling, and art are taught in this room For language, the children study the customs of various peoples In Phonics they study the sounds of letters. This enables pupils to attack new words independently. page fifteenBOYS' 4-H Handicraft work offers the boys excellent opportunities to learn the fundamentals of manual training. This will include not only the construction work but also the study of native trees, wood identi- fication, selection and care of tools, reading and drawing plans, pre- paring and applying simple finishes, and many other phases of the work. The practice and knowledge gained from completing satis- factorily the handicraft project will not necessarily make carpenters of the boys who finish, but it should equip these boys with the ability to plan and make many of their own articles. The handicraft club aims to do more than just teach the funda- mentals of successful manual training or carpentry. The social club meetings offer chances for associations with other members. Mem- bers learn to conduct club meetings, and to follow some definite plan and an outlined program for each of the 4-H handicraft club meet- ings. Handicraft club work develops rural leadership, emphasizes the importance of organization and cooperation and promotes a four-fold development of head, heart, hands, and health. The club plans its work so that all project requirements may be completed. GIRLS' 4-H The 4-H Club was organized in 1937. Miss Howard was the first adviser, succeeded by Miss Sajban, who is our present leader. Our 4-H Club has always been successful in achievement day con- tests, several of our members winning trips to Lansing. The club has had many parties, potluck dinners, and such affairs for enjoyment and for business. In order to select the winners in a less complicated manner, the schools are divided into districts. Achievement day was held at Stevensville with Evans, South Lincoln, Hathaway and Stevensville exhibiting their articles. Winners from this exhibit went to Benton Harbor, where all district winners met. The president of our club was Jeanne Sounart; Eleanor Siewert, Vice president; and Evelyn De Morrow, Secretary-Treasurer. The Club meets once a week, usually on Monday. The girls attend to the business and fill the remainder of the afternoon in work on their projects. These are assigned according to the years completed in the club The 4-H is well attended, having fourteen members who have completed their work. The reason for this is that a complete course in Home Economics is not one of the regular courses offered in the school curriculum. page sixteenpage seventeen page eighteenHIGH SCHOOL GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club, with a membership of twenty-seven, was the largest in the history of the school. They specialized in three and four part work and have been highly praised for the excellent quality of voices. During the year they have contributed to various community programs, including church and school functions. Twelve girls were selected to participate in the Berrien-Cass County Vocal Festival, held at Niles. Nobel Cain was guest director of the mixed chorus of five hundred voices. Black skirts and white blouses were selected as uniforms. BAND AND ORCHESTRA The Band and Orchestra is under the leadership of Mr. Fred Null. They were both organized in the year 1938. The main event of the year was playing for the dedication of a new flagpole erected by the State Highway Commission. They also provided music for basketball games, and other school activities. The uniforms consist of cardinal red trousers, white shirts, black bow ties, and red hats. The Band is proud of these uniforms which were purchased by the village. They are also campaigning to give summer band concerts. Con- certs were held two years ago, and were successful. JR. HIGH GLEE CLUB The Junior High Girls' Glee Club consists of twenty-six girls from the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. The Club was started by Mrs. Myers at the beginning of the school year. They meet once a week, usually on Monday. The Club sang on various occasions, such as the Christmas program, and the Boy Scout Benefit Show. The girls are specializing on two and three part work as well as concentrating on quality of voice. This preliminary training offers a great opportunity toward a high school chorus. A second Glee Club which was started recently consists of thir- teen girls and eight boys. pane nineteen"HE WAS A GAY SENOR SENIOR PLAY On November 7, 1940, the auditorium of Stevensville High School was filled to capacity with relatives friends, and strangers from far and near, to see one of our best plays, "He Was a Gay Senorita." The play was filled with bits of humor and prize drama which kept the audience entertained to the end. The Cast Daniel Benjamin Arnald Benjamin Larry Moore Lena Lutzenheim Fritz Lutzenheim Bino Da Dan Vera Stewart Margaret Lockwitz June Gale Mrs. Spangossi Senorita Cariotta Ferrez Mary Jane Pooch Patsy Forest Doc. Forsythe Senorita Costa De Latorriente Lizabeth Gorske FACULTY PLAY The faculty of Stevensville High School threw off their cloaks of dignity and put on the sheets of ghosts to present a mystery play, "Hobgoblin House." This occurred on December 5, 1940, with an audience of approximately 450 in attendance. The play was produced to benefit the visual education in Stevens- ville Schools.

Geisler, Thursby. adviser, and Raah The staff was organized at the beginning of the school year, with Marie Davis and Bino Da Dan as Co-Editors. The editors then got to work by selecting their staff members and making a few other changes. The Cardinal was printed only once a month instead of twice a month. This change was made because in former years the students had to spend a great deal of their time working on the paper. Also in this last year, typists, Elaine Fuzak and Helen Rother- mel, were added to the list of staff members. This was done to re- lease the editors from that responsibility, as they already have enough work to do. It is also the duty of the editors to choose a staff to carry on and publish the school paper in the coming year. This was a rather difficult job to do, as there are only a few lowerclassmen who have had any experience in journalism. Evelyn De Morrow and Jeanne Mongrieg were finally chosen for this position as Co-Editors. The Annual is the biggest and most important job of all! There- fore, only those that have had past experience in journalism are selected to help in publishing this book. Another factor that inter- venes here is the student's school marks, maintaining a definite average to be eligible. page twenty-twopage t tcnity-threeFirst Row: |un«. J. Bodjack. G. Miclkc.

Bodjack HAIL CHAMPS In many respects the year 1940-41 will go down in history as the most successful of a long period of successful athletic years at Stevensville High School Following a year of mediocre achievement, the redoubtable Cardinal athletes served notice last fall that their star was on the ascendency by taking the South Western Michigan "D" Conference Championship in Softball without the loss of a game. Held to a mere half-dozen practice sessions before the basket- ball season started, the Cards got off to a shaky start. They looked unpolished in their defeat of Edwardsburg and positively ragged on the short end of a 45-26 fracas at the hands of their neighbor, Bridgman They managed to nose out Eau Claire by a close score but were tripped by a fast, rugged Berrien Springs team in the next encounter. In a pre-Christmas comeback they trounced a poten- tially strong Baroda team 47-23, inspiring Coach Shearer to venture a prediction that the team could win the State Championship if the pace could be maintained. The holidays came and went, and the Cards took a pair of easy ones from St Joe Catholics and Galien and then psychologically fell apart in the last half of their second game with Bridgman, absorbing a 50-20 shellacking. They didn't look like Champions then, but came back with a vengeance to administer a second trouncing to Baroda, 42-26 Galien, Eau Claire, Berrien Springs, New Troy (twice), and St. Joe Catholics were taken in stride, to complete a scheduled sea- son of 12 victories and 3 defeats, and to bring home a Conference Championship. Perhaps the most astonishing victory was the Berrien Springs game in which the Shamrocks were crushed 42-22 by a well- nigh perfect Cardinal machine VARSITY BASKETBALL page ticentg-fourSCHEDULE Team SHS.

During the early games of the District and Regional, the boys seemed far from their best. However, they managed to get by Edwardsburg, tough Conference foe, by 4 points, and again rolled down Baroda, 36-17, in the District final. Meeting White Pigeon, a fine, tall, rugged team in the Regional Semi-final the team was extended to eke out a five point victory, while in the finals two nervous and extremely cautious teams-—Benton Harbor St. Johns and Stevensville, Confer- ence foes who did not meet during scheduled play—faced each other in a struggle decided only after Stevensvilie's smooth passing, and working the ball well in for shots proved superior to the long shot attack of the Irish. In the State finals, the Cards downed a strong Whitehall team, pride of the Grand Rapids Regional, 35-25 and progressed to E. Lan- sing where E. Tawas fell 23-14 in the semi-finals and a highly touted Hanover dropped a 42-25 decision in the finals to the not-to-be- denied Cards. Home again—and State Champions1 A record to be proud of. Ending the cage careers of Raab, Bod jack, Jung, G. Mielke, and Hass in a blaze of glory, and setting the highest possible mark for the team of 1941-42 to shoot at. Will the team of 1941-42 be able to hit that mark? Ask Posch, Mielke, Cupp, Krajacic and Lockwitz—three veterans and a couple of valuable replacements—for that is the nucleus around which next year's team will be built. Trust them to keep up the old tradi- tional fighting spirit! Hail, Champs! page tu'enty-fiveGRADE BASKETBALL Fust Row:, Davis, lorgenson. W. On. Kronas, lung. Shaffer Second R«»w: DcNIorrow, DaDan, M. On, Bariz, Woods, Sicweri, Coach Ecclcs The Aces basketball squad had a very unsuccessful year, win- ning only a small percentage of their games during the season. They we e eliminated by a fast St. Joseph Catholic team in the grade tournaments held in this school. This year the Aces were a last half team. They would fumble the ball and miss many shots in the first half. In the second half the Aces would play ball the way they should and would outscore the other team. However, the opponent's score would be so large that they couldn't overcome it. The Aces used a man to man defense, but their offensive play was weak because they would miss a big percentage of their shots. Another fault of theirs was that they would throw the ball in the hands of the opponents. This was prob- ably because the boys were excited. The Aces had played very tough teams during the season and this was an important factor which had much to do with their losing so many times. Next year the team will be without the services of John Kronos, Norman Shafer, Bill Ott, Junior Jung, Gene Jorgenson, and Virgil Davis. These players will graduate this year, and next year will probably become members of the high school team. The Punks were very much the same as the Aces because they too lost a majority of their games. This team is organized of boys who are not old enough or are too small to play with the Aces. They played different rural schools during the year. Next year some of the players from this team will play with the Aces.

Even though we haven't succeeded in winning every game we played, each girl has really strived for her dear Ole Alma Mater and any defeat was due to the limited amount of practice the girls received. But when Tuesday came around, you could always find them in the gym. Their suits consisted of red satin shorts with white shirts. There have been five thrilling games, two with Coloma, two opposite New Troy, and the last against the Y WC A, girls. Three of these five battles were fought on our home floor and with every game real sportsmanship has been demonstrated. The girls have been coached by Mrs. Smith, who has been coach of the girls team for several years. Several of the leading players who are Seniors are leaving the Freshmen and other players to do better next year. So come on you gals and do your stuff, we are depending on you! Here's hoping you are the future champs. First Row: Pallas. Wickwire. Siewert, Mrs. Smiih. coach. Dehring. E. CJorske Smoko Row: Hodder. I). Pooch. €. Sicwert. Schaeffer. C. Ciorskc.
