FOOTBALL SEASON OF 1943
The Bulldogs of Ada High School, under the direction ofi Coach Lowell Heese and Assistant Coach Gene Coleman, enjoyed another wonderful season this oast fall. They began by adding two victories to the string of seven straight established during 1942. The next game was lr st stooping the winning streak at nine games, but the boys returned to win the last four games in a row, and ended the season -with a record of six victories and one loss.
The season opened with the Bulldogs invading Wapakoneta and coming home with a hard-fought 25-20 victory.
In the next game, when Ada traveled to Bluffton, the boys from A.H.S. emerged victorious 13-12 after the score had twice been tied.
Then in the first home game of the season the Bulldogs bowed before a strong Upper Sandusky eleven, 16-12. Ada led at the half, but Upper returned to deal the only defeat of the year to the hard-fighting boys of A.H.S.
The following Friday afternoon, Carey came to Ada to meet defeat by a 20-15 score, at the hands of an improving Ada team. This game saw Ada put on the steam in the second half, after the visitors had a 13-7 lead.
Senior Day and Dad's Day was climaxed by a smashing 49-6 defeat administered to Delphos Jefferson. In this game the boys hit their stride and the outcome of the game was decided soon after the opening whistle, as they rolled up touchdowns, seemingly, at will.
Traveling to Kenton to play their arch rivals, Ada's Bulldogs snowed under a heavier Kenton team by a 34-0 count, in a game which truly showed up the power of Ada's offense. This game exemplified the steady improvement made by the team.
After a week's layoff, due to the fact that no game was able to be scheduled for this date, the team journeyed to Forest for the last game of the season. The Parole and Gold emerged victorious 32-7 in a rough and tumble game. Thus with this final victory the team finished a very successful season ar.d one which ranks with the best in Ada High School's history.r - '• - G. ole an, (Ass' t. Coach), R. -Cellar, V., Amoy, R.

Ada High School's Bulldogs enjoyed another successful basketball season. Beginning the year with but two letter men and one regular from last year's team they proceeded to show fighting spirit throughout the season. After winning the first five games in a row the boys hit a losing streak which held them back until the latter part of the season. The team suffered the loss of their coach Lowell Reese on December 15th, after which they were directed by Gene Coleman, who had been acting as assistant prior to "Reesie's" departure. Including the tournament game in which Ada was defeated by Hicksville, the team won nine and lost eight, scoring 692 points to 797 for their opponents.
The reserve basketball came through with luck this year winning 11 of 16 games. They scored an even 500 points to their opponents 424. Members of the reserve squad included Niles Amey, John Elliott, John Stager, Phil Bosse, Jim Banks, Bob Gobin, Pete Shadley, Jack Dally.
The intramural program is participated in by boys who are not on the football and basketball squads and by boys who play football and basketball and who engage in intramurals after the respective seasons are over.
The intramurals program takes up tack-football, soccer, volley ball, basketball and soft-ball, track, horseshoe pitching, etc.
The points of each event are added to determine the winner each year. The Seniors have won the volley ball, basket ball and soccer while the Sophomores won the touc£-football.
INTRAMURALSG. A. A.
The Girls Athletic Association has been active in the past year and created much interest in girls athletics in the school. Any girl in the upper four grades can obtain a letter after earning the number of points required. The meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of every month. This year the girls have enjoyed play nights, pot-lucks, and hikes. There are many ways of earning points such as hiking, either on foot or on a bicycle, playSng in the tournamen6s, refereeing, selling candy at the games, and attending the meetings.
Three senior girls were awarded A's this year. They were Marie Dodge, Dorothy Mankey, and Jerry Ream.
The G. A. is directed by six girls who have been selected by popular vote and by their sponsor. The board consists of:
President: Marie Dodge
Vice President: liarie Long
Secretary: Betty Stair
Treasurer: Jane Turner
Intramural Manager: Dorothy Mankey
Social Chairman: Patty Ryan
Adviser: Mrs. Anspach
Under the leadership of Dorothy Mankey, the G. A. A. Intramurals Manager, the girls' intramurals were successfully brought to a close.
There was a lot of stiff competition in the tournaments of soccer, kickball, and basketball. Something new was added this year when the upper four classes divided into four sides; thq Waves, Wacs, Wafs, and the Spars. The Waves won in Volleyball games and the Seniors carried off the honors in all other sports.

The F. H. A. stands for an organization of those girls who are enrolled in the Vocational Home Economics course or who have taken this course in former years. The club is a branch of the State Future Homemaker's Association and is composed of eighteen members this year. Meetings are held every other Monday.
Some of the goals of the club are: (l) to bring about a better
coordination of homo and school projects; (2) to stimulate friendships and cooperation among its members; (3) to participate in school and community activities; (4) to improve the physical aspects of the Home Economics rooms; (5) to advance in F. H. A. work.
During the year the girls enjoyed several evening parties, held formal initiation and degree ceremonies, were hostesses to a neighboring F. H. A. Club and sponsored the Football Banquet. Part of the proceeds of this banquet were used to buy pictures and equipment for the cafeteria room and the Home Economics Department.

F. F. A.
The "Future Farmers of America" exists today because of the cooperative spirit and desire of the farm boys in vocational agriculture to have an organization in which they may secure practical business experience, act as their own instructors,and enjoy fellowship with one another. It is organized vocational education on farm youth level. Improved agriculture, better local communities, a more satisfying farm home life, and more efficient farmer-citizens are emerging as a result of the boy's experience.

The 1943-44 " Purple and Gold" was published monthly by the paper staff and printing classes of Ada High School.
Because of the high school's varied interests and participation in sports, debate, and other programs, the staff had ample material with which to work.

In this poem we'll try to bring About each one of us some little thing,
About our Class of '44,
As we denart through the high school door.
First, Miss Crawford, Sponsor of Glass of 44 Helped us in every way, we could ask for no more.
Mr, Augsburger our other sponsor, we must agree
Is one grand guy and always will be.
Now a senior who's charming and sweet,
Helen Agrn is herd to beat.
Howard Amcy, next on the list,
Tall and blond—who could resist?
In high school snorts. Herb went to town,
But now we hear he's Navy bound.
Romeo had but one desire,
And that was to equal Larry Baier.
Dort Baker dbes not waver,
When it comes to blonds, they're in her favor.
How o-o-old are you, is Bank's cry.
To all the girls of Ada High.
Tiny, but a mhiz in basketball,
Art, for his height, tops them all.
Polly and Dotty, the authors, as you already know Find we're not as good as Poe.
About ourselves we’ve nothing to say So we continue the poem this way.
Now Ellsworth Cambell lid us a dirty trick,
’ffhen he went to college, but we couldn'tkkick.
Little we know about Louise,
Except that a sailor she tries to please.
A big guy with brains and might,
That's'"Jake Elliott, he's all right.Jinny from the five and ten,
Certainly goes for those things called ''men. "
Patty really gives the girls a race.
With her enchanting smile, her charm, and grace.
Now we add a top-rate girl,
Sweet and shy, that's Mona-Myrl.
Anchors Aweigh for a sailor named Bill,
If there's something to do, do it he will.
Crashing of glass, a skidding of brakes.
Here comes Nick, run for gosh sakes.
Marie Dodge, when she married, started a new life, For now she's become a sailor's wife.
Always clowning, but quite a feller.
That's a senior, by name, Halph Keller.
Joan's got a diamod., and is being true,
For on her arm she wears the Navey blue.
Tall and dark and already hooked.
That's Max Klingler, his goose is cooked.
Shirlee—editor of the Purple and Gold.
On the U. S. Fleet she's 100 sold.
Bert McBride is quite a clown,
And also known as a man about town.
Faye Moore's dramatic ability, we've already seen, She's a prominent figure in our high echool routine.
Gerald Motter in the Army we find,
Marching daily—rain or shine.
Joe Motter, a fellow we all admire,
When he beats those drums, they're really on fire.
Dorothy Mankey's plans for the future are few.
But we bet they include that diamond, don't you?
For someone happy and full of cheer,
That's Verda Nelson, throughout the year.
When out of his sax, comes that sentimental tune, Morris Patton really makes the girls swoon.When it comes to sports, he really has skill,
His name is William Pifer, but he goes by Bill.
Josephine Rayl does her part,
When it comes to studies she's really smart.
Ralph Price in class didN't shine,
But now in the Navy, he is doing fine.
Always yelling and backing her team.
Is a s'enior girl named Jerry Ream.
Lorene Shadley if given a chance,
Can outdo anybody the way she can dance.
Our four-year President and a good one too,
Is Bobert Stair, he pulled us through.
When it comes to a comedian, she's really a scream. That's Margie Taylor, she's right on the beam.
With the boys she really clicks;
ihat Jean Ann Tremain, better known as Trix.
Ada girls do not exist,
Because Bluffton tons Maurice Umphress's list.
Ernie Walls wears a diamond on her left hand,
Which will be accompanied someday by a wedding band.
Margie Welty a nurse wants to be.
And she will—you just wait and see.
Bob Willeke is in the Army too,
He picked the khaki instead of the Navy blue.
We'd like to know the reason why,
Ernie Wingate doesn't date the girls of Ada High.
Charles Yearsley the last in line,
As a clarinet nlayer, he is really fine.
And now we say good-bye to you
As every class sometime must do
We hate to leave in many ways
§ut will fondly remember our high school days
Of all our friends we're leaving behind
No truer ones could we ever find.
We leave with you our good times and more And hope you will remember the Class of '44THE "WE" STAFF
