As the poet says, you should Wgrapple to thy soul with hoops of steelv the friend who guides you during your high school days in forming high ideals and interests. This friend is truly a tower of strength to us. Such a friend is our superintendent. It is with sincere pleasure that we dedicate the 1942 edition of WWEW to our inspiring friend, Mr. G. G. Roberson.

Many times you've gathered here To listen to our tableau, We hope we've pleased you very much, Before we have to go. Our teachers dear with all their toil, To make us all the brighter, we give our thanks, and hope Their burdens will be lighter. And now dear friends, I'll hurry along, For I have an urgent task, With your permission, I'11 read to you, Some poetry about our class. In the Speech Glass Play, as an Irish girl, Katie Abbott had Noel's heart in a whirl. Mary Atha's romance is really the thing, For now she is wearing a beautiful ring. Mr. Augsburger has been loyal and true, To the Senior Glass of '42. No eyes for another boy, it's understood, For Marie Binkley is satisfied with Underwood. Leonard Binkley is lanky and tall, On the farm he'1l be working next fall. Therefs a lad in our class named Jimmy Black. With all the girls, he sure has a knack. Now Eldon Bosse, they'd like him to stay, For he earned his letter in F. F. A. He's the originator of the Hold pool room stuff, That's Russ Boutwell, but haven't we said enough. In bookkeeping and typing he sets the pace, The one we're speaking about is Franklin Brace. Dark-haired and dashing is Irene Burns, Towards stardom and glamor, her heart really yearns As a ticket taker at the Odeon show, I Carl 'and1er's a lad that all of you know. It slowed dawn the heart of Irma Jean Crowe, When poor Willard to the army did go. As the captain of our football team, Johnny Castle elayed hard and clean. A giri's heart fldtters and her eye flashes, 'hen she looks nt Joe Davis's long lashes. As a plaver on the senior softonll team, Third oaseman Dave Bietzel was right on the beam. Andy-Fender relies on his muscles and Drawn, But what will poor Andy to the day they are gone. He'S president of library, and a good one EOD, It's Johnny Ferguson we spelt of to fad.

Betty Uuyton in shorthand, dh Coen e cel. with this type 0f'w0rk we know she'll do well. Next comes Alisa High, a beLoved lass, As valedictorian, she leads our class. Wim HOVSI didn't wnyer, she soon found'her place, Eight in the Orchestre, slanoin' that bwss. As our athlete we nicxed Martha Hull, For she field hnnsle a basketball. An outstanding ftudent of versatility, Is Bob Irwin, an Anerican farmer to be. Avanell Kindle with red hair of hue, As manger of robes, we are grateful to you. In future years, we all will see, Margaret Kinnear in a Beauty Shopo'e. An all around girl is Betty Klingler, Her heart's in Columbus, for a ring's on her finger. Although through trials and tribulations, we an do Miss Many Ellen Kraner, still in her right mind. As a ooeeditor, Jean Krofft, proved fine, For she had the annual, right out on time. Leota McBride is a girl full of cheer, Another senior, whom theyfll miss next year. For one whofs an actress, and willing to do, Count on Marie Mazzulla, she'll always come through. Dependable and willing, is Andrew McBride, Welre glad t o have him on our own side. Into our class in our seventh year, Came Emerson Moser, a boy sitting here. Clair Motter is so young and so stout, 'Cause he's a true member of the Boy Scout. June Newland is our NJitterbug Queen,N When she's on the dance floor, she's really keen. Norman O'Brien, hails from the farm His curly black hair adds to his charm. Now from Pat Olson, wo've all heard Her acting's superior, her voice is superb. She On Marjorie Peterson, you can always depend. lives on Simon Street, is a good friend, Helen Philpott has records, ever so many. When you're with her, you have fun a plenty. Jolly Joe Ream is our colorful clown, He cheers you up when trouble gets you down. The big ambition of blond Ruthie Ryan, Is to help the U. S. Ukeep 'em flyin'.W Roland Rodenberger, a basketball star of renown, Soon will be moving to another town. Tom Rutledge, on the flute he does play, We bet that the band kids would like him to stay. find Here are two boys, Walter Sheets and Charles Spar, Both are the owners of a Ford car. Next is Jerry Shuster, our WJitterbug King,W His ambition is to be maestro of swing. Bud Schaeffer is our villain of plays, He's proven his talent in many ways. Wayne Shadley is a boy with no time to waste For after the girls, Wayne does chase. La Sleesman will never be left behind, She Kuste be bashful, but Fred changed her mind. Before Don Sterling leaves the school, He'1l make sure he breaks every rule. A singer, a beauty, the gal with the car, Yes, you've guessed it, she's Beulah Mae Spar. Dorothy Thompson took care of Miss Kraner's gloom, By taking attendance in the Senior home room. Billy Trowbridge is the boy with the answer, And incidentally, he's a very gpod dancer. A girl, a car, and away from the throng, Bob Underwood says, you can't go wrong. Theo walls is cute, calm and sweet, She belongs to the army, from her head to her feet She has a voice, and that slow southern drawl, Marylin Watts is one for whom you could fall. Another member of our class is Mary Webb, Her heart belongs to Harry, 'tis said. Quiet and studious, a gentle lass, This is Emma Willeke, one of our class. Short and cute, a peppy tike, Leo Wright is one we all like. She beats the drum in the band at school, For Dot Wood, pep is the rule. So, fare thee well--from this class of ours, In nineteen forty-two, As you meditate on what I've said, We bid you all -- NAdieu.W Q Qs ,0 X, Q U .- 'N I XX of I Q ff", f" f'lX' , tix Xu ff!

JOURNALISTS ATTEND CONVENTION ' In November, ten Ada High School students interested in Journalism work, and their instruc- tor, attended the eighteenth annual convention of the Journalism Asso- ciation of Ohio Schools at the Deshler-Wallick Hotel in Columbus. The delegates went on an inspection tour of the Columbus Dispatch and entered three discussions at which suggestions were obtained for bet- tering our publications. The students sponsored a cookie sale to raise funds for the trip. LAUD PRINTING GLASS The printing class of Ada High school is a very select group. The thirteen members of the class under the direction of Mr. Raymond Hoops, are responsible for the printing of the WPurp1e and Gold? and for the advertising pages of the yearbook. Aside from these duties, the boys put out all pub- licity posters, tickets, and office forms. The department has done some very fine work with the Silk Screen Process, a new addition to their methods. The class includes John Castle, Russell Boutwell, James Black, Joe Davis, John Der- inger, Carl Candler, Gerald Roden- berger, Dave Dietzel, Arthur Agin, Everett Lenhart, Andrew McBride, Wayne Shadley and Eugene Snare. The entire paper staff, Miss Ellenwood, the adviser, and Mr. Hoops and his printing department are to be congratulated in produc- ing one of the best school papers that I have ever read. The editor- ials have been of a high order, the make-up, lineotype work and print- ing has been exceptionally good.

The Bulldogs made up for their lack of weight in speed and deter- mination, since their heaviest regular was 165. The result of the season could have easily been six victories and two defeats with any share of breaks. They were inside of every oppo- nent's ten-yard stripe. Rain and mud handicapped them in three games as they depended upon deception and passes.
