(bourne)shell variable names containing a variable?

I try to assign a value to a variable, but the variable should consist of
another variable. Is this possible (in bourne shell)?
list="one two three four"
for item in $list; do
This doesn't work since the shell tries to execute "one_present=yes"
instead of assigning yes to one_present....
What am I missing????
Thanks a lot,
