Balloons Will Fly at the 4-H Kiwanis Picnic, July 1937
Caption: Scenes At Kiwanis 4-H Outing: Typical of the program and contests participated in by 250 Ann Arbor Kiwanians and their guests at the annual picnic sponsored by the service club yesterday at Newport beach, Portage Lake, are these scenes snapped by the News photographer. At the top left [this photo] County Agricultural Agent H. S. Osler is shown just before he took second place to George Cooper in the 'human pump" race. The center picture shows little Lois Ruhlig of Dexter huddled in a blanket; she was in the blanket because her clothes were hanging on a line to dry out as the result of Lois' fall into Portage lake just before the festivities started. At top right two girls are racing neck and neck in the hop, hop contest. At the left in the middle row of pictures, Roger Freund, Ann Arbor Y.M.C.A. director, is demonstrating to the girls the intricate maneuvers in the "novelty walk," and in the center photo the girls are doing their best to match his graceful posture. Three 4-H girls from the Dexter area are interested spectators of the games in the picture at right, and in the bottom row at the left the younger children are shown in the last lap of the centipede race. At the right Mrs. Myra Spike of Whitmore Lake Rd. has just kicked her slipper into the air in the women's kicking contest, and she is watching its flight.
