ADA HIGH SCHOOL
Therels an old spin-ning wheel in A.-H.-S.-,
Spin-ning dreams of the long, long agag
Spin-ning dreams of the old-fashioned customs,
As the classes for honors fight anew!
Lost in reverie is this seventh grader, who is musing of the football, basket-
ball, baseball, and track victories and of how he will achieve new records for The
Parple and the Gold. The staunch rooters shall not yell in vain HBEAT KENTON.,,
Cut lads and lassies will blend their voices in choral competition. As the for-
mer choruses have won, so shall their groups return with not only district and state
honors, but with national honors for a full measure. Tooting Iohnnie and Fiddling
Susie are dreaming of band and orchestra glories greater than have ever before been
Our Miss and Master Socrates are meditating upon a short story, an essay,
and an oration that can never be equalled by any interclass contestant. Likewise
does the youthful debater plan an argument and a delivery that shall astound the
multitudes. The school paper shall have an editor who shall edit the greatest tri-
umphs in the newspaper world.
Service as office assistants, as hall monitors, and as librarians will be the great-
est ever rendered. The fine ideals of the I-Ii-Y and the G. R. will be maintained.
What scholastic records shall be recorded for him? I-le will be content only
with the highest! When they pin the "Key Stone" upon his bosom, they will say
here is a chap who has made a record never before equalled.
And as the wheel slowly turns it brings new fields in which the dreamer may
participate, those activities pertaining to Open I-louse, G. A. A. Iamboree, the An-
nual Bumls Day, and the Friendship Dances. Although they are in the stage of in-
fancy they give promise of becoming a part of the high school program.
Yes, this old spin-ning wheel in A.-H.-Sf
Spins the dreams of those days yet to come!

l THE LAST ROLL CALL
Fellow students, classmates dear,
Gather 'round from far and near.
l Weill loyal be and praise to the sky,
Our own Alma Mater, Ada High.
We've tried to get some real book learning,
And if you are not too disceming,
.You'll discover that we've done very well,
We've learned how to read and how to spell,
As well as other various interesting phases,
Of languages and history-Oh we've had crazes
Of Orange and Black britches and silly pork pies,
i Knee-length socks and gaudy bow ties.
But we'll really miss the old institution,
And we haven't quite reached the solution
l Of how to say our last fond goodbye
i To the stately portals of Ada High.
We shall think of the early morning knell
Of the merciless, heartless alarm clock bell,
' Which rang and rang 'till we opened our eyes,
I For soon it made us realize
' That we must wend our weary way,
To the home of our thougixfs, our work and our play.
We pause r- we leave, no more to return-
As our lockers we clean, our books we burn.
i We look ahead with plans full of gladness,
But Linder it. too, is a farewell sadness.
Some may move from where they've resided,
But oft in tlte future our minds will stray
To the school where many a happy day
Was spent in acquiring lots of knowledge,
Some will be workers, some go to college,
But fond memories will with all of us stay
Long after our Graduation Day this May.
We leave to the juniors as their heritage
From us, who are older by far and sage,
The fun, the laughter and the hard work, too,
That all of us seniors had to do. '
A happy lot-my children dear,
And may you have as happy a year,
As ours seems in memory-Ah, but then,
We'd dread going through it all again!
So here's to Miss Becher, from those who annoyed her
May she soon be happy with her handsome lawyer,
Her senior class was a trial, I suppose,
But she bore it with splendid calm and repose.
ln class, one charming girl, Confucius say-
That oriental Miss Aurora Alay.
One who wears red-of vivid hue
Catherine Atha, I knew you'd guess who.
Earl Baughman is a boy with a winning smileg
We're not wrong when we say he's a pal worth while.
Martha Bosse is our bid for glamour,
For her favors the boys 'shore' do clarnour,
A red-headed gal is Pauline Branaug
i An interesting life Iill bet sheis planninf

THE CLASS PROPHECY
After checking all morgues, cemeteries, hospitals, and prisons, trying desper-
ately to unearth some trace of the outstanding class which left Ada High School in
,4O, the investigating committee had almost given up hope when a sudden inspira-
tion came. It is queer that they hadn,t thought of looking in the most natural place
in the world for a record of this class. The following information was gathered from
the 1960 NVho,s Vlfho:
Kin Vvlilliam X of Norwa abdicated his throne for the woman he loved,
Betty Wzilly Doersam. I

WOMEN AND THE CROSSROADS
By RUTH STAGER
In ancient Athens the women stayed at home, attending to the affairs of the house. They never acted
as hostesses when their husbands had parties, and were only seen in public at the theater and at certain
Sharply contrasted to this custom was that of the Aztec and Babylonian women. These Mexican
women shared in most of the occupations of the men. Some learned to read and write, others learned
the principles of astronomy and astrology. The Babylonian women often engaged in business for them-
In out-of-the-Way places on the globe geographers have found strange peoples among whom the
rights of the mother are stronger that the rights of the father, and where women perform many duties
which elsewhere belong to men.
In most highly civilized countries the women come to outnumber the men. This is due primarily
to the fact that men are more exposed to death from industrial accidents or war. In the world as a
whole there are slightly more men than women, although with the white race alone the proportion is
The progress of women in civilized countries has been slow. becoming more marked as men and
women learned that one could not advance far without the other. Men and women alike must be Htted
to bear a share in the nation's support and betterment. Old-fashioned propriety usually has shaken its
head in shocked protest when women demanded new privileges.
The controlling conception of the proper status of women prior to the nineteenth century was ex-
pressed by Pericles in his eloquent funeral oration. He said, "And if I am to speak of womanly virtues
let me sum them up in one short sentence: To a woman not to show more weakness than is natural to
her sex is a great glory, and not to be talked about for good or evil among men."
The organized women's rights movements began in the United States in 1848, as a direct out-
growth of the anti-slavery struggle. The story of won1en's gains was long and trying. but finallv in
August of 1920 ratifications were obtained from the necessary three-fourths of the states, and suffrage
was extended to all women over twenty-one years of age.
Women have slowly gained power, until in 1040 they are represented in nearly all fields of work.
ln 1924 Wyoming and Texas elected women for state governors. Nobody knows what the future holds
in store for women.
The fairer sex is advancing szpeeflilv in the fields of medicine and law, formerly considered a man's
job. Long after schools generally felt the influence of co-education, law schools and medical schools
failed to provide for the needs of women. In 1930 there were approximately nineteen times as many
men practicing medicine as there were women. Florence Ellinwood Allen, a prominent woman lawyer,
says that there is a great field for women in law and that modern women are deeply affecting the ad-
ministration of justice.
There are perhaps 'many women who genuinely love and are interested in people and their needs.
Nursing as a career offers an opportunity to help mankind in deepest need and prepares young women
to more adequately make good homes. Florence Nightingale put it, 'KNursing is an art that concerns
every family in the world."
Those of you who Find shorthand a fascinating art, should consider the profession of shorthand-
reporting. It may surprise you to know that shorthand-reporting is one of the most exclusive and re-
munerative professions, and the average earnings are greater than those of the doctor and lawyer.
Adelaide S. Baylor says, 'iliverv girl is a potential homemaker and for eighty to ninety per cent
of them potentiality ceases and reality begins. It is. therefore, proper to assume that the major respon-
sibility in the lives of practically all Women in America is that of hornemakingf'
l have only mentioned a very few of the professions which ofler an outlook for modern women.
Somewhere in the world there is a niche with our initials carved on it. Let us start out tomorrow to
find it. There can be no greater reward than that which comes from the knowledge that we have done
our best: everything possible to advance our CCPIIZYIT-C and social haopiness.
A clue to our path comes from a quotation from Achmed Abdullah. "I have made the discovery
that, when all is said and done, the old-fashioned much ridiculed decencies of life are the main basis
for success and happiness-and by the 'decencies', I mean chiefly three: honesty, physical cleanliness,

THE LAST ROLL CALL
Next on the list is nice Gerald Carisg
VVe could tell tales but they might embarrass.
Right out of the Forest comes Lorraine Chaney,
She's fast at basketball and also brainy.
A chill and a shudder announce Gene Crouse
As we remember him in 'Hob Goblin Housef
New right in here we find the name Sonia,
But we're too shy to feed you bologna.
Another red is our cute Lois Davis,
Beauty and brains, she certainly gave us.
Then we come to Robert Dickmeyer,
ln football, no one could kick higher.
An all-around athletic is Betty Doersam,
On the basl-:ethall team she really floors 'em.
Roliund Eley is good at drum and cello,
In fact, we think he's a versatile fellow.
Lewis Elwood, we couldn't omit,
The quiet type, but he sure has 'it'.
Though he was often behind the eight ball,
He's a boy we all like-Here's to Tom Hall.
Rachel I-Ian-od is sweet and petite,
We're very sure she'll be hard to beat.
One of our class who was always adtoit,
ls a shy little Miss named Frances Hoyt.
Stealing the show, who but Edna Hubbellg
All laughed at her 'til they were bent double.
Reed Hubbell is another dramatic star,
Who in the art of acting could go quite far.
Well. look who's here-it's Warren Hull,
When he's around there's never a lull.
Evelyn Iones is sweet and smart,
From her company, we're loathe to part.
Alice lean Klingler-active in classwork,
Energetic and cute, she never did shirk.
Lowell Klingler is lanky and tall,
For him every girl will likely fall.
A little fhcme-body' is Ann Lowman,
But when she's around boys, its-Alas woeman!
Our Co-editress is Arlene Luft,
And friends of hers are never rebuffed.
Nelson McBride is a shy, handsome lad,
With good disposition and seldom sad.
Clark Gable, Bob Taylor, have nothing, we say,
On Dick Messenger, hero, in our class play.
Louise Moore has a principle from which she doesnt vary
This policy we mean is the well known "cash and Carey
Iames Moser is the next in line,
He's a nice boy, we think heis fine.
Leona Motter is a blond
And of her we're very fond.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS
With ideals so fine.
And the ability for teaching,
Mr. Roberson, our principal,
Has a name that is far-reaching.
With a vast knowledge of verbs
And a collection of nouns,
Miss Hunt has gained
Many literary crowns.
If you want to build a house
Don't be as timid as a mouse
just get Mr. Grove to help you plan,
For he's the most accommodating man.
You hear everyone say:
"Miss Baum's ideas are handy."
That's the reason the G. A. A.
ls so fine and dandy.
He teaches hard Algebra
Through careful planning
That's right - you have it,
its Mr. Lanning.
The inside or outside
Of any machines works
Can be fixed in a miuute
By Mr. Mertz.
A vast knowledge of music
Has been obtained by Miss Titus:
She has taught the choruses rhyth
That surely rates excellent plus.
Fxfl iss Me Dorialdfs name
Came from a great Scotch clan,
That has gained much fame
For trpachizziga Home Ee., plan..
Mrs. E-ilawlfs irindhness
Can never he surpassed,
Arid we know her friendliness
ls the kind that lasts..
Ready, willing, and able
Are the words he doesn't avoid.
This fits our Superintendent-
Capable Mr. Floyd.
She knows her Caesar
And her Vergil too,
This is our Latin teacher-
Miss Crawford to you.
Football and basketball
Compose his favorite meat,
But to see Mr. Shipe's art
Is in itself a great treat.
The praise for this man,
Should be scorned at by none.
Because he dressed up the band.
We salute Mr. Davidson.
The pecking of typewriters
Is perfect bliss
To our commercial teacher,
Miss Evelyn Smith.
In 'the agriculture room
Promising farmers bloom.
Many might seek the credit
But-Mr. Augsburger is the one t
When it comes to history,
Few could be better
Than everyone's friend,
Miss Dorothy Becher.
In chemistry or math,
Far from faulty,
ls the very keen reasoning,
Of Mr. Taulbee.
In English she is fine,
In French she is divine,
o get it
You should know without this rhyme
That Miss Felty's friendly all th

The President stood in the Hall of Farne,
"So great am I" said he,
"The fresh, the soph, the juniors, all,
Acknowledge the greatness in me."
The senior came with head upheld,
No fear did he possess.
He took his place by the Presidents side,
For he knew his mightiness.
The President, wise for a learned man,
At once saw his defeat.
He looked the senior full in the eye,
Then made a hasty retreat.
Now the senior stands in the Hall of Fameg
A beautiful statue he,
When the President passes, he bows and says,
'Hill homage I pay to thee."
TI-IE F RESHMAN CLASS
We the proud freshmenoi A.. H. S-
Will prove to you we've served you best.
And we shall continue until the end,
Our high school honor to defend.,
In three more years we shall be
The sophisticated seniors of '43'.
But still we'll try to serve you best,
As we did when freshmen ol A. H. S.
THE JUNIOR CLASS
We're the Juniors and we know,
You always reap just what you sow,
Our standards were high the past three years,
May our fourth never end in tears.
Achievements, requiring both brawn and brain
We have been able to attain
Athletics, music, and scholastic ability,
But with it all a degree of humility,
What the future for this class may hold,
Only time and providence can unfoldg
But we hope that life has just began,
For this, the class of "forty one."
THE SOPHOMORE CLASS
Down the path of bygone ages,
We now travel day by day.
Talk and learn and walk with sages,
Gathering all the lore we may.
As we slowly turn the pages.
Picking out each dusty work,
War and tales of all ages
When naught -but power- was once preferred.
Now our eyes can see a vision
We behold our school anew,
As we turn with zeal and new decision
Thankful for the right to dare and do

Ada High's 1939-40 Varsity Basketball squad made a wonderful record, winning twelve out
of seventeen games. Four of the five defeats were handed Ada by class A schools. The team
received its only class B defeat from Belleville in the second round of the district tournament
and then only by a small margin.
Although the team lacked height, they made up for by snappy passing and plenty of fight.
The highlight of the season ocourred when the Bulldogs literally trounced Harrod by the score
of '50-36. Ada's offensive power this year was shown by an average of thirty-eight points to
their opponents twenty-nine. The team's defensive skill was shown by holding our greatest
rival, Kenton, to a minimum of points, even with one of the starting five missing.
This year's team had the best spirit that has deen shown by an Ada fiv in many years.Auy
spectator could see the team played as a unit and not as individuals.
This year's starting five included Robert Dickmeyer and Glenn Neiswander at forwards, both
being fine offensive players. Ralph Neiswander and Clare Elwood were at the guard position
and did some fine defensive playing. Roger Paugh at center was an offensive threat and could
always be counted on to get rebounds. Evan Simon , guard and LowellKlingler, center also
received letters. The graduation of Robert Dickmeyer anp Roger Paugh who were co-captians
this year, will be a loss to the team.
This year's sqnad achieved a record that will be envied and admired by iuture Ada High
teams. The best way of summing up this year's team is by the words of our coach, Phil Shipe
-"This is the greatest group of boys I have ever coached."

The Ada High school experienced a successful football season, in the opinion of their
many followers, in spite of the fact that they won only three of their eight games.
Out of the large number of boys that reported to Coach Phil Shipe for practice at
the beginning of the season, there were only three lettermen. With plenty of hard work
among these willing boys, a fairly strong team was developed to combat Van Buren as
the seasorfs opener. Although the final score of this game was 21 to O in favor of the
opponents, the teams supporters felt that they were amply rewarded by the team work
and good sportsmanship displayed by the locals throughout the game.
The next game was dropped to Forest at the score of Z0 to 0: but the pigskin
carriers came through for Ada in the following tourney, with a 13 to 9 victory over
The two succeeding games were lost to Kenton and Carey with the score of 13 to O,
and 7 to O i1:s,xt-natively. On the following day of combat, we were rewarded with a 16 to
6 victory over North Baltimore. During this game, probably the most spectacular play
s d ' tl foem of a twenty-six yard field goal which helped
ol the season was witnesge in ie
very much in deciding the garne.

Under the capable management of Mary Iane Firestone, intramural manag-
er, the girls enjoyed a banner year in class competition. Five major tournaments,
kickball, volleyball, basketball, deck tennis, and kitten ball, were run off between
the four upper classes during various times of the year. ln order to secure variety,
individual teams participated in five minor tourneysg birdieminton, dart archery,
horseshoes, archery and badminton. All of these were new sports introduced by
G. A. A. this year. The seniors who have lost only one major tournament Cbasket-
ball, freshman year, in their four years of participation, were well deserving of the
intramural cup, which was presented to them for the second consecutive time. Gut-
standing work in the minor birdieminton tourneys was displayed by I-lelen Spar,
Betty Doersam, Betty Greenawalt, and Beulah Spar, and Alice High in dart archery.
Participating in intramurals is the principal Way of securing points toward
G. A. A. letters. ln the major tourneys, girls receive points only when they are ac-
tive in every bracket. -
Intramurals, which are held at the noon hour, are carried on to arouse an in-
terest in sports for those who are not out for Varsity sports and to create interclass
competition. The sports included in the intramural program are touch-football, vol-
leyball, and track. Members of the varsity squad officiated for a number of these
The classes that carried off honors in the various sports are as follows: Foot-
ball, Seniors, basketball, Iuniorsg wrestling, Iuniorsg foul shooting, Seniors. The
sports activities have not been entirely completed.
The Junior High boys had a tournament of their own during the basketball
season, and they were coached by members of the Varsity squad. The tournament
was won by the Stinkos, who were coached by Glenn Neiswander.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
One of the most active organizations in Ada I-Iigh is the Girls, Athletic As-
sociation to which all girls enrolled in the four upper classes are eligible. It is the
purpose of the association to promote interest in sports and gymnastic activities as
a means of creating physical efficiency, athletic accomplishment, scholarship, and
A board composed of six girls elected by the association is the governing body
of G. A. A. The duties of this body are to conduct the general business of the or-
ganization, draw up the rules governing tournaments, award honors, and in all
Ways further the interests of the association. Members of the board for this year
are I-Ielen Spar, president, Mary Stambaugh, vice president, Marie Mazzulla, sec-
retary, Dorothy Ienkins, treasurer, Mary lane Firestone, intramural managerg Ra-
chel I-Iarrod, social chairman and Miss Eleanor Baum, sponsor and adviser.
Through the effort of this board, many new sports have been introduced into
the gym classes. Among these are birdieminton, darts, fencing, badminton and
archery. In order to purchase the necessary equipment, a Penny Iamboree, one of
the biggest social events of the year, was staged.
Through a point system any G. A. A. member may, after four years of par-
ticipation, be awarded a letter. Points can be earned by participating in the I-like
and Bike Clubs and che play nights, serving on G. A. A. committees, and being
active in the intramurals.
Those girls who were awarded "A's', this year include I-Ielen Spar, Betty
Doersam, Louise Moore, Ruth Stager, Mildred Parker, Edna Hubbell, Ruth Web-
er, Rachel I-Iarrod, and Alice Klingler.
The purpose of the Reserve Basketball team is to give boys experience so
that they strengthen the Varsity squad. The Reserves did not have a very success-
ful season, but they did come out on the long end of the score in Eve out of four-
teen contests. Even from lost games practical experiencewas obtained, and possi-
bilities were disclosed which will be an asset to next year's Varsity. The predomi-
nant factors of this team were the Hne co-operative spirit and the good sportsman-
ship shown throughout the season. If for nothing else the boys are to be congrat-
ulated for their 'Lnever say diem attitude.

We are here to transact such business as may come before us, to fortify our high
purpose through conference and Bible study, to strengthen the ties of friendship that
bind us together and to make the Ada Hi - Y club and ourselves as individuals of
greater service to our fellows.
For two weeks during the summer we send four boys to the Hi - Y camp at
Nelson-Dodd near Mt. Vernon. At this camp the boys have devotionals, discussions
and entertainment. The boys learn of the activities of the other Hi-Y clubs and try
to make the program at home more helpful.

represented us at the Interstate Conference at Youngstown on December l,2,3, 1939.
Each boy attended a different discussion group and told us some of the things that
the groups decided.

EDITING THE ANNUAL
The 1940 Ada Watchdog staff members have shown a cooperative spirit. They have tried
to edit an annual that will do justice to the school. Because of lack of time, the annual may
not be entirely without fault. They feel that any success which may have been achieved in
this endeavor is due to the tireless efforts ol each member of the staff Mr.Grove's enthusiasm
made him an inspiring adviser.

mittee. The routine and traffic committee controls traffic in the halls bv means

feature that the council plans and supervises. This year for the first time the council
is sponsoring an annual.
The purpose of the council is to promote a wholesome and efficient relation-
ship between the student organizations and the faculty, and to arouse a loyalty to
Ada High School and her activities.
'THE NATTONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society is composed of seniors, the number of which must
not exceed fifteen per cent of the senior class. The students must be of the upper
twenty five per cent in scholastic rating. The final selection is based on the following
objectives: scholarship, service, leadership and character.
The rating of scholarship is based on the average of the four years' grades.
Service is interpreted as the willingness to represent the school or class by selling
tickets, by acting on committees, by showing courtesy and by rendering any other
worthwhile service to the school or community.
Leadership can be gained by successfully holding offices, and demonstrating init-
iative an classrooms and other activities. A student may gain recognition in char-
acter by demonstrating honest spirit toward his teachers and associates, by uphold-
ing ideals of Christian organizations and by demonstrating at all times qualities of
reliability, honesty and promptness.

The Ada High School Band, whose history shows an unblemished record of
winning important contests since 1932, has again buckled down to business in pre-
paration for this vear's festivals. Work on the contest material began late in'Nov-
ember. Unlike the orchestra and choir, the band always has to face a rigorous
schedule of drill in marching tactics and playing at football games whether it be
their contest year or not.
The marching season was a success. Handsome new uniforms, the envey of
schools for miles aroundg a trained Drum Major, who never missed a goal-publicity:
better execution of straight military marching,as well as floatic and static ornam-
ental formations were contributing factors.
Because of an increase in our high schc ol enrollment the music organization
are now in the class BB a transition stage toward bigger achievements.
Ada High School's forty three amateur musicians, who gathered twice each week
under the direction of Harold Davidson, have presented ample proof that inter-
est in orchestral music has not declined.
President,Marian Rutledge,assisted by Tom Richardson as vice president has
supervised the business of the organization. Chairs have been put in place by
managers,Ear1 Stober and Roland Eley and the music was kept in order by the
librarians Miriam Hover and Alice High.
A double string quartet under the expert leadership of concert mistress, Marian
Rutledge have won much applause for their contribution to many programs.
The members of this group were Marian Rutledge and Bettie Focht first violins
Arlene Luft and Dorothea Wood,second violin,Lucylle Creps and Donna
