As wo go out into life we will never forget the helpful counsel he has given us. It is our hope that the students of Ada High School will be privileged to have this leadership for many years.A pleasing personality, courtesy at all times, and a sincere interest in everyone—all these traits of character we find especially outstanding in our principal, Mr. Calloway Taulbee. Ada High school students owe much to his guidance. With a pleasant smile Virginia performs the many tasks of an office girl. We find her obliging at all times.

This is her third year with us, and we want to express our sincere appreciation for the fine service she is rendering both faculty and students.FACULTY DIRECTORY Mr. C. C.

Because of change in time of meeting to a regular school period twelve additional members joined the group at their second meeting. The weekly meetings were outstanding, a few of which were: Camp experiences, pointers on etiquette, hobby lobby, picture shows, discussion on rationing, induction of new members and many interesting guest speakers. The social activities consisted of a Mother-Daughter tea, potlucks, and parties with the Hi-Y. Together with Hi-Y the group tried to do their part in winning the war by selling war bonds and stamps and to increase the interest of the student body in this cause they sponsored a patriotic play in regular assembly period.

Maintain and extend throughout the school and community the high standards of Christian character. The Hi'-Y spent a successful year, with weekly meetings consisting of discussions concerning vocations, post war problems and Christian living. They helped to uphold their purpose by attending church in a body every month. Guest speakers and movies were part of the Hi-Y programs, and potlucks, find parties with the Girl Reserves helped to enliven their spirit. The officers of the Hi-Y this year were; President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer Program Chairman Devotional Leader Sponsor Mr, Arden Roberson Herbert Anspach Ralph Obenour Howard Elliott Albert Berger Calloway TaulbeeF. H. A. The Future Homemakers Association is a state organization composed of local chapters from schools which have organized instruction in vocational home economics classes. Delegates from the various local chapters meet in state conventions annually and the year's urogram of work is outlined at this time, This organization develops the abilities of its members ohat tuey may better meet home, school, and community problems. It also strengthens confidence and leads to a well--rounded and continuous personal development. Grouu projects this year included preparation and serving of the football banquet in the fall and also the selling of Christmas cards. The officers trere as followst President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Sponsor Mable Thompson Patty Ryan Marie Hover Marie Long Miss Mills F. F. A. "Learning to do, doing to learn, learning to live, living to serve" is the motto of the "Future Farmers of America." The aim of the organization is to develop agricultural leadership, cooperation, and citizenship. There are four degrees of active membership: "Green Hand", "Future Farmer", "State Farmer" and "American Farmer". These goals are increasingly difficult to obtain and offer a real challenge to members. Throughout the year the boys were engaged in such projects as chickens, corn, oat.,, wheat, soil testing, and others.

In all articles of the paper, the staff followed the policy of presenting to the students the news they want to read in a way in which they want to read it. Through finances from advertising, subscriptions, and the Activity Fund, through the efforts of the staff, and through the excellent cooperation of the printing department, it was possible to publish nine issues this year, besides one preliminary, four page edition during the second week of September. New features of "The Purple and Gold" are: an Honor Roll for Service Men who graduated from Ada High; exchange column entitled "Trading Post," and soecial "fillers" on Defense Stamps and Bonds, "The Purple and Gold" is being sent, free of charge to all Ada High service men of the last two graduating classes as a gift of the staff.PROJECTION CLUB Members of the Projection Club have several tasks to perform before the students of a class can enjoy a classroom movie. They receive little credit for their work which often must be done quickly because of limited time. The student usually thinks only of the movie. The Club is comprised of a group of boys who willingly give a part of their school hours to operate the movie projector so that others may get the best reception possible from the film presented. It is no easy task to move the projector and equipment from one room to another, expecially from one floor to the other. The projectionist is handling a machine of no small value, both monetarily and educationally. Today, if any great harm should come to the machine it would be impossible to replace it. Each member realizes this responsibility. The duties of the members of this club are to obtain the film from the metal container in the office, set up the projector and equipment, thread the film, make lens, sound and distance adjustments, rewind films for future showings, and move everything to another room when necessary. Recently at one of the club meetings, members learned how to splice films that are broken due either to age of film or to improper care in handling. SENIOR SCHOLARSHIP TEAM Ten members of the senior class were chosen to compete with representatives from other schools throughout the state in senior general scholarship tests prepared by the state department of education. These tests were given in English, mathematics, history, science and reading. High achievement in this test is considered indicative of a-bllity. Many colleges and universities issue scholarships based on the results shown. Other fields of work also use the scores from these tests to locate capable graduates necessary for recruits in various jobs. To our own school, participation in these tests gives an opportunity to determine our standing in comparison with other schools of similar size in the state.ANNUAL STAFF Co-editors Ralph Obenour Margaret Creps Business Manager Howard Elliott Seniors Mildred Jo Williams Mary Stager Mary Edith Soar Dorothy Deringer Arden Roberson Juniors Faye Moore Patty Focht Herbert Anspach Morris Patton Sophomores Jane Turner Barbara Kerr SENIOR TYPING STUDENTS Ruth Stober Marcine Clum Genevieve Shadley Betty Stauffer Dora Anne Clark Donna Mazzulla Margaret Creps Jeannette Helber Betty Jo Wright Eva Kindle "WE," the editors School, wish to thank and acceptance of those of this volume typifying life in Ada High those of the staff for their fine cooperation responsibilities which have been bestowed upon them.

The Bluffton Pirates proved to be no match for the vicious Bulldogs and they were downed by a score of 25-0. Nearly every member of the ADA squad entered the contest. Upper Sandusky came closer to being a stumbling block for the Bulldogs than any other team. The Bulldogs were in scoring territory several times but they just couldn’t put the ball over the last stripe. Then in the last six minutes of play with the score at 6-0 against the Bulldogs a pass was completed for a touchdown and the extra point was converted for a victory by the score of 7-6. After the Bulldogs’ close call with Upper they made a strong come back and mauled Carey 40-13 with a vicious running and passing attack. The Bulldogs' defensive work was superb. Delphos Jefferson was rated as the "underdog" in pregame predictions and the Bulldogs lived up to their high ratings by trouncing Delphos 57-6. After the Delphos game came the game that all spectators and players had been waiting for—the game with their bitter rivals, the Kanton Wildcats, Never before did the Bulldogs go in to a game more intent on winning than they did this game. And winning is what they proceeded to do by running Kenton off the field by a score of 38-6. The Bulldogs finished the most successful season in the history of the school by defeating a scrappy Forest team 40-0.BULLDOG’S RECORD Date Place Score Opponent Score Nov. 20 Home 36 Alger 28 Nov. 24 Away 48 Dola 28 Nov. 27 Away 30 Defiance 46 Dec. 4 Home 30 Alumni 45 Dec. 11 Away 47 B.

They were one of the most feared teams in this part of the state. They were not only a fast ■breaking team, but sharp shooters and clever ball handlers—a combination hard to beat. The Bulldogs this year were paced by the "Big Three": Tressel, Sanderson, and Roberson. Tressel's ability to hit the hoop was known all over this section of the state. Sanderson— six foot center was a very good pivot man and his height added to his effectiveness under the basket. Roberson's ability to control rebounds and shoot long shots was a large factor in the team's success. Gilbert Elwood's defensive olay stood out. He was what a coach likes to have-(A team man.) Herb Anspach, the only under classman on the first five, held down a first string position as an aggressive forward. The services of Duane Fender were lost midway in the season bo-cause of his enlistment in the Navy. There are hopes of another successful season next year. These hopes lie in another "Dig Three" consisting of Herb Ansoach, Lloyd Van Atta and Randall Roberson.GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Girls' Athletic Association is a club organized for all girls who are interested in athletics as an extra-curricular activity. The purpose of G. A, A. is to create good sportsmanship, scholarship, physical efficiency, and athletic accomplishment. The G. A. A. Executive Council, better known as the governing board, is chosen by the association members for a term of one year. Officers for the year were: Carol Lowman, president; Marie Hover, vice president; Mary Alice Spar, secretary; Carolyn Snyder, treasurer; Betty Jo Wright, intramural manager; and Miss Guinevere Lanning, faculty adviser. A point system has been set up whereby each girl who attains 1000 points will receive a letter. The following girls have obtained letters for this year: Carol Lowman, Mary Edith Spar, Betty Stauffer, Milly Williams, Barbara Wolfrora, Betty Jo Wright, Mary Stager, and Bobby Stambaugh. Various sports in which the girls have participated include soccer, volleyball, basketball, kickball, softball, deck tennis, badminton, birdieminton, and archery. The senior class was victorious in volleyball, basketball, and kickball; and they tied for first place with the sophomores in soccer. Minor sports including dart archery, free throws, challenges, jumping rope, jacks, hiking, and bicycling gave other ways of making points. The G. A. A. concluded its activities for this year with a gym revue in the form of a three-ring circus. The highlights of the program consisted of the following various activities in which the physical education classes have participated during the past year: march- ing, tap dancing, natural dancing, gymnastics, tumbling, folk dancing, pyramid building, and square dancing.JUNIORS Sponsors Miss Betty Ellenwood Miss Guinevere Lanning President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Robert Stair Virginia Ferguson Pauline Binkley Harry Banks 1st Row: Shirlee Kuehne, Charles Yearsley, Jean Ann Tremain, Bill Hawley, Maurice Umphress, Verda Nelson, Herbert Anspach, Marjorie Welty. 2nd Row: Morris Patton, Genevieve Ream, Ernestine Walls, Margie Tay- lor, Nick High, Helen Agin, Max Klingler. 3rd Row: Dotty Baum, Arthur Baughman, Ethel Sneary, John Staley, Ralph Keller, Marie Hover, Gerald Motter, Ellsworth Campbell Joan Klingler, Howard McBride. 4th Row: Robert Elliott, Robert Willeko, Mona Myrl Hathaway. 5th Row: Dorotha Baker, Faye Mow're, Ralph Price, Lorene Shadley. 6th Row: Larry Baior, Joseph Motter, Dorothy Mankey, Eddie Gossard.

Because of the state-wide transportation problem no contests were held but many performances were given for school events and thus excellent service to the school was rendered. On April 30, a Spring Festival was given with the theme of "Music from the Allied nations." The Mixed Chorus sang for the Baccalaureate Service. This year several students from the Choruses were asked to sing with the Community Choir when the "Messiah" was given at Christmas time. Several ensembles were formed: These ensembles were the Senior girls, Soohomore girls, Freshman girls, Junior mixed, Senior mixed, Senior boys, Junior-Senior boys, and the Soohomore boys. Each of these groups performed during the year at assembly programs and various school functions.

Emily, (Mary Stager) his wife, devotes all her time to the rearing of her four children. Mary (Margaret Creps) and Bob (Arden Roberson), high school youngsters, rebel against their parents' close supervision and Dick (Howard Elliott) breaks the news that he wishes to get married before completing school. Emily is very much disturbed about this but Hope (Mildred Williams), a social worker in Chicago, defends Dick. Emily reminds her that she shouldn't talk "after her experience." This remark causes Hope to speak her mind to her mother. She says that it is all her mother 's fault that she isn't married to Sanford Welles (Junior Tarr), a young lawyer. Emily resorts to tears and appeals to Richard for help. Hone's outburst weakens Richard but he still tells Dick that he should wait until graduation to get married. The children have been discussing a trip for their parents. Richard and Emily are weary from the grind of rearing children and a trip might do Richard's arthristis good. After considerable argument, the parents embark on a South American cruise leaving Delnhie (Barbara Wolfrom) in charge with Hope assuming the responsibility. After the paronts leave, things start hapoening. Mary decides she should go out with other boys besides Randy Cunningham (Ralph Obenour) so starts dating Jack Milford (Louis Brcntlinger), a college sophomore and cousin of her friend, Miriam Walker, (Janice Ann John). Bob begs his allowance for the next ten weeks from Hope and buys half interest in a car. Buzz Daily (Merrill Keller) and Bob run into a car owned by Mrs. Forestor (Dorothy Deringer), an old crabby widow. The boys are faced with the damage costs and charges of driving without a license. Hope calls Sanford Welles for his aid and through his former teacher he gets Mrs. Forester to compromise for two hundred and fifty dollars. Buzz and Bob get jobs and the family sacrifices many things. In the meantime, Dolphio has come down with pneumonia and Dick has brought his wife home . She is the former Jenny Malloy (Shirley Wixom). Though she has anticipated attending Jack's college prom, Mary, at the last minute, feels compelled to refuse to go for he breaks his promise to her. When Emily and Richard return from a perfect trip, they find their family happy with all their various probloms solved. Bob has paid his dobts, Mary and Randy are friends again, and Hope and Sanford are planning to follow Dick and Jenny's examplo.FAREWELL y Donna Maszulla and Jeanette Shuster The Senior Glass of 43 is ready to depart. And even though we happily smile—there's sadness in our hearts The happiest moments of our lives were spent within these walls So now that we have finished here, we’ll answer our life’s call But first before we say Farewell, I’ve something more to say, Something about each one of us, then we'll be on our way. First is a man who is a friend to us all, Mr, Augsburger is always on the ball. Now Arthur Agin s a "man about town," Just to look at him you can tell he gets "around." Once Madelon Anspach just had a feller. Now she's changed her name to Mrs. Keller. If you’ve got a gal and no place to take her. Just drive her around to see Charles Baker. We all agree that Jim Bauman is a very nice fellow, And boy I Does he go for hair that's long and yellow. Albert Berger has discarded his vacation. Instead, he's off to college to further his education. Ruth Berger, one of our class who is fair, Co-Valedictorian honors she does share. Goldie Bosserman surprised us a bit, When she helped make "Getting Pinned" a hit. Willis E. Boutwell, the lad from the farm. Goes to La Fayette to get his charm. Next in our line is Robert Brace, Doris and he are seen every place. There's a kid named Louis-better known as "Tip." He's a nice kid—but oh I what a rip. Goldie Branan is one we are sure will please, For the army she wears her heart on her sleeve. Now Mary had a little lamb—this we won't deny. And if it’s a Cnnaan—it's sure to catch your eye.Even though Dick Carmean's the biggest tease in the class We wager there's many a student reluctant to see him pass Now Charles Cheney is more on the quiet side. But just give him a chance and he'll preside. Fred Cheney wasn't one on the girls to call, But watch those passes while playing football. Vim and vigor were not lost for Dora Clark, Even though the army now does hold her spark. If a diamond makes a gal glum, We couldn't be referring to Marcine Clum. Minker has her favorite orchestras—Lombardo rates on top But when it comes to first names, Guy it is not. Dorothy Deringer, a teacher is planning to be, She'll make the grade—you wait and see. Now Eddie K. Doyle is really a clown, If he'd spend more time in school and less uptown. Howard Elliott never missed a chance to make. In problems class—a big debate. How Gilbert Elwood as you may know, Really helped the Ada team make a good show. Duane Fender joined the Navy to see the world, And in Ada he left Barb's he-rt in a whirl. Jerry Shuster is a boy we never know to fret. That would be impossible with a wife like Jeanette. Neat and cute—sweet and simple, Janice John—the gal with the dimple. Although in football Merrill Keller did shine Romance and Madelon blocked that line. A beautiful girl we can all admire, Alberta Kenton doesn't lack any fire. A little guy with brawn and might That's Leo Kimble—he's all right. Such a shy little red-head we never did see. No wonder Bob says "Doris is the girl for me." Quick as a beat and very keen, Another red-headed Kindle—Eva Irene.Helen Klingler is not one to jump at conclusions, But the Parachute Battalion has her in seclusion. Our hone-room teacher, Mrs, Glen Poff, Will always smile when the going is tough. Joyce Laraale's vocabulary is really sharp. On the same word she never does harp. Everett Lenhart will never waver, When you ask him to do a favor, Carol Lowman is never a bore. When she's around there's fun by the score. Now comes a boy who's really a clown, You know whom I mean—Lowell McQ,uown. He draws and plays, that's Stanley Main, We know that someday he will surely win fame. Next is a girl who's always on the beam. We all know Donna's heart belongs to Jimmey Green. Ralph Obenour's the boy doing all in his power, To help get out the annual right on the hour. Little and shy is the next girl in line. But in Evelyn Petty a friend you will find Arden Roberson is the boy known as "Stretch" A casanova all the girls would like to "ketch " William Sanderson—better known as "Sandy" In sports and plays is really dandy. Always doing her share and trying to please, Our co-valedictorian, sweet Eloise. A pair of wings she is wearing gladly, A senior class girl namely Genevieve Shadley, Pauline Shadley admires the WAAC's and the SPARS, But her favorite hobby is collecting movie stars. Wherever there's laughter and fun to be found, Sylvan C. Simon will always be around. Always ready and willing to do his share, Yes, that's whom we mean, Eugene Snare. In music and sports she has done her bost, We mean Mary Spar, as you've probably guessed.A girl with pep and a beautiful voice, Mary Stager has made nursing her choice. A pal, a friend, a girl full of glee. That’s Bobbie Stambaugh as we all agree. In sports and debate she sure knows her stuff, And no one can call Betty Stauffer’s bluff. Ruth Stober a secretary will someday be. But her heart belongs to Johnny as we all can see. Give Junior Tarr a day-rain or shine. And fun on his motorcycle he will surely find. Mabel Mae is always happy and gay, Since she changed her name to Mabel Hathaway. Next is Lee Tressel, our Senior at State, Up to Eloise he has left his fate. A piano, some music, and a twist of the wrist, And she’ll play you a tune, that’s Mrs. Crist. Merle E. Wirt is the next in line. He’s owned by the Navy and also Patty Ryan. Always joking—full of fun and glee. That's Charles Umphress as we all can see. Mildred Jo Williams the girl with the grace, Also has poise and a beautiful face. Shirley Wixom is both small and neat. She made Ralph’s heart skip a couple of beats. Barb Wolfrom's hit of the day Goes to Duane who is Anchors Away. Betty Jo Wright is a whizz on the floor, Give her the ball and she’ll always score. Last is a boy whom we all do hail, It's none other than Rollin H. Yale. So now we say Farewell to you all. To our own dear teachers and the high school walls. To the little things which we'll always hold dear. Things that have made us happy and things that have brought us cheer. We'll always remember you and we hope there will be, In your hearts a memory of the class of '43.Arthur Agin Boys' Chorus 1, 2, 3, Intramural football 1, 2, 3, 4 Madelon Anspach Girls' Chorus 1, 3, 4 Mixed Chorus 3 G. tR. 3 Ensemble 2, 3 Charles Baker Intramurals 1, 2, 3, 4 F.
