ADA BOARD OF EDUCATION Mr. C. C. Roberson, Superintendent Mr. Sari Dome, Clerk Dr. C. H. Freeman, Vice President Mr. Earl Huber Mr. Austin Philpott Mr. Mason TaborCharles Borger '39 Lewis El wood. '40 Robert Irwin 42 Howard Elliott '43 IN MEMCRIAM "It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion; that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain;"DEDICATION To Lt. (j.g.) Wilson LeVan, talented and rospcctod music instructor in Ada High School from September, 1940 to March, 1943, now on loavo of absonce while serving in tho U. S. Navy, wo are also proud to dedicate this "We" of 1945. Not only in tho field of instrumental music but in all phases of our school life, Mr. LeVan was a loyal booster for Ada High. Ho is now in the South Pacific and wo aro proud to have his name still on our faculty roster. Wo hope to welcome him back to Ada at the conclusion of his term of service and in the mcantimo we wish him tho best of luck» To Pvt. Lowell Reese, our capable and honored coach from September of 1943 to December of 1944, now on leave of absence while serving his country in the U. S. Army, we are proud to dedicate this edition of "We." "Recsie" led Ada High School to many a victory on the athletic field and contributed much to a greater victory on the field of battle for his country. He was wounded October 11, 1944, at Alsace Lorainc in Prance, We are wishing for him a speedy recovery and will be proud to have him back with us again to take an active part in community and school affairs."We"--what is the significance of this word, to you? Without seeming too sentimental, let me venture to say, that to some of us it means much more than it does to others. Perhaps its real import to each of us can he measured by the extent to which we have projected ourselves into the life of our school. May the 1945 "We" serve as a pleasant reminder of your associations in Ada High School. ' ■T t.To the Students of Ada High School: Education should he such as to guarantee the child an opportunity to develop and maintain a healthy body and a balanced personality, to acquire the skills needed as tools of learning, to get a good start in understanding and appreciating the natural and social world, to participate in home and community life, to work and play with others, to enjoy and use music, art, litera.ture and handicraft. This education should assure the youth continued progress in general, physical, social, civic and cultural development. It is my hope that you as students of Ada High School and future citizens of our great democracy may follow these suggestions and con-tinuo to grow in those developments that contribute to a well-rounded life. 1 .tM t FACULTY DIRECTORY Mr. C.

Day in, day out, from morn till night, The senior spirit rules, Each day we strive to do the right, Collected, calm, and cool. From the first grade on, we've really done The things that make for worth, While all along we've had our fun, To equalize our work. We oft recall our grade school days, All the pranks that we could do, Snow hailing, hair pulling, childhood frays, Operettas and parties, too. And, oh, the days of Junior High, When young love flourished there, To lockers down the halls we'd fly, Our noses in the air. Our football team won every game, When we were sophomores, As seniors now, we did the same, We wish we could once more. In interclass we won the cup, As sophs and seniors too. We're setting higher standards up, To challenge all of you. Do you remember "Valley of Ghosts"? The biggest hit of all, "Beyond the Horizon's", now our boast, We're really on the ball. As back across the years we view, The happy days gone by. For everything we've learned from you, We thank you, Ada High. The future holds great things, we know, So nobly do we strive, And onward into life we go. The class of Forty-five.

A hayride, hamburger fry at Hilty's, potlucks, play nights, mootings at girl's homes, and a party for mothers helped fill the social calendar for the club.

It was innovated in 1907 by Doctor C. H. Freeman as an outlet for class spirit. It originally embraced all four upper classes but in later years only the upper three have contended. It promotes good sportsmanship, independence of thought, and extensive research on the parts of the students. One of the highlights of the year is to be found in this altercation. It is interesting to note that it ie a distinctive feature of our high school. There aro four events of each contest—readings, orations, short stories, and essays. Each class elects four students, one from class competing in each event. Until this year the Senior and Junior classes each took part in a debate and two other events. As a temporary measure the Student Council, the sponsor of Interclass, decided against the old arrangement which has existed for some time and substituted the above plan. The names of the various interclass contestants for this year are as f ollows: Essays: Readings: Orations: Short Stories: Joyce Moore, Sophomore; Chester Neff, Junior; Joe Ernsberger, Senior. Ruby Baughman, Sophomore; Patty Rice, Junior; Patty Ryan, Senior. Wilma Shadley, Sophomore; Dorothy Rodgers, Junior; Gerald Lamale, Senior. Gloria Welsh, Sophomore; Miriam Dearth, Junior; Carolyn Snyder, Senior. The Senior Class won the contest this year. SCHOLARSHIP TEAM Two students are chosen each year to represent their classes in a general state scholarship test. The subjects included are Social Problems, Physics, Chemistry, English, Plane Geometry, Algebra, Biology, General Science and Latin. £ 4s fi-elcL -401 L) 3SENIOR CLASS PLAY Tho Senior Play cast presented. "Beyond the Horizon" on the consecutive nights of May 3 and 4. This samo play was the Pulitzer Prize Winner of 1920, and is now being produced for motion pictures. The play was well received by enthusiastic audiences. An underlying factor of tho play's success was the capable direction givon by Mr. Danford, who spent endless hours in cutting lines, blocking the stage, and conducting rohearsals. Tho play is conterod around throo characters—Ruth Atkins (Esther Campbell) and the two brothers, Robert and Andy Mayo (Gorald Lamalo and Randall Roberson), Both Robert and Andy are in love with Ruth, and yet arc as close as brothers can bo. Tho love that both have for Ruth causes many changes that greatly affoct thoir lives. In tho first scone Robert is discovered sitting on a fence which surrounds thoir fields. He is a tall slcndor young man of twenty-throe. His features are delicate and a touch of tho poot in him is expressed by his high forehead and dark eyes. Andy comes along tho road, returning from his work in the fields. He is twonty-seven years old and just tho opposite from Robert in star-turo. Ho is husky, sun—tanned, and handsome—a son of the soil, in-tolligont, but not as intellectual as his brothor is. Thoir convcrsa.-tion is largely.concerning Rob's plans to loavo the farm for his much-dreamed-of plan of journeying around tho world with his Uncle Dick (Roger McElrey). When Rob finds out it is he that Ruth loves, he decides to stay and sottle down on the farm. Bccauso of this sudden turn, Andy loaves, knowing ho can not stay because of his own lovo for Ruth. All tho offorts Mrs. Mayo (Carolyn Snyder) and Mr. Mayo (Herbert Clum) put forth to koep Andy at homo, seem to ha.vo no offcct. In Act II, scone I, Mrs. Mayo and Mrs. Atkins (Esther Dobbins) aro soon talking in a dimly lighted room of tho Mayo house. Throo yoars havo passed. Mr. Mayo has diod, and the farm hp.s suffored greatly, duo largely to Rob's lank of ability to farm. Rob and Ruth havo grown to hato each other and are constantly fighting. When Andy returns, he finds everything in turmoil, and starts to rebuild the faim. When homo only two weeks, howovor, Andy decides to return to South America, to ongago in the grain business. During tho ensuing years tho farm slowly dies, and Rob's health slowly declines until ho can no longer farm. Andy is rocallcd because of Rob's increasing ill ness, and in an effort to savo Rob's life, brings a specialist with him. In the closing moments of tho ploy, Rob dies leaving Andy and Ruth together, to faco the future problems of lifo. Other characters participating wore Ben, the hired hand (Jack Gordon), and Dr. Faucctt (Joe Ernsborgcr), both of whom gave a good account of themselves.BEST FOOT FORWARD This musical comedy was presented on December 1, 1944 by the class of "46" and again presented by popular request on December 7. This play was acclaimed as one of the most outstanding productions ever given by Ada High School students. The cast? Jim Banks as Dutch Miller; Paul Volckening as Hunk Hoyt; Phil Bosse as Chuck Green; Warren Fisher as Satchel Mozer; Dick Irwin as Dr. Reeber; Jean Main as Minerva; Willa Creps as Ethel; Lucretia Johnson as the blind date; George Deringer as the Old Grad; Bob Gobin as Bud Hooper; Chester Neff as Professor Lloyd; Pat Bice as Gale Joy; John Elliott as Jack Haggerty, Gale's manager; Betty Stair as Helen Schlessinger; Niles Amey as Chester Billings; Miriam dearth as Miss Delaware Water Gap, and Virginia Schrauth as Miss Smith. The story centers about the annual prom given at Winsocki Prep School. Bud Hooper, one of the students asks the movie actress Gale Joy to accompany him to the prom. Hooper, ignorant of the fact that the star might accept his offer, plans to take Helen Schlessinger, who arrive by bus the morning of the prom. Hooper's roommates are agog at the thought of seeing their girls again. Gale's manager wires Bud that the star has accepted his invitation and will arrive the afternoon of the prom. Bud feels sure that he can adequately handle the situation because Helen did not arrive on the bus bringing the other girls. Helen, however, finally arrives and learns of Bud's infidelity. After a harrowing series of events, involving the faculty, Bud is dismissed from Winsocki. Gale, however, comes to his rescue by securing scandalous photos of Dr. Reeber and thus manages, by threatening to show the photos to the puolic, to prevent Bud's impromptu departure from Winsocki. The news is finally broadcasted that Gale Joy had accepted an invitation from a student to a school prom. As Gale's manager had foreseen, this bit of publicity was enough to gain a contract from M. G. M. Songs, dances, and comedy, intermingled and disfused throughout the play, round out an evening of perfect entertainment. Hit songs from Best Foot Forward "Everytime" - solo - Betty Stair "The Three B's" - solo and dance - Lucretia Johnson "Jenny" - solo and dance - Pat ®ice "Shady Lady Bird" - Sextet "Buckle Down Wiribocki" - ooening and closing number by cast Director - Kelly Danford Accompanist - Miss Betty FrayelMADISON S i.

In chalking up their third victory of the season, the Bulldogs gained vengeance over last year's defeat by downing the hard-fighting Upper Chieftains 6-0. The outstanding feature of the game was the excellent defensive opposition given by the Bulldogs. In a ragged game marked oy fumbles, penalties end bad passes, Ada's unbeaten Bulldogs scored in the third and fourth ouarters to defeat Carey 13-0. The rulldogs roared back after two evenly contested games, by downing a heavier Delphos eleven, ?4-0.

Including tournament play, the Bulldogs won thirteen games and lost five, amassing 743 -points to their opponent's 561. With every member of the team contributing to the success of the season, a fine spirit was maintained throughout the year. Lloyd's "eye" for the basket was responsible for a good share of the points made. Louis Good, scrappy guard, was always fighting every minute of the game. Amey, a junior, improved with every game, and specialized in getting rebounds. Dick Doringer was a good pivot man and played a good brand oi defensive ball. Roberson's ability to control rebounds and shoot long shots also added to the team's success. With Amey, Bosse, and Elliott, as a nucleus, Ada is hoping for another successful season next year. Others who will probably see a lot of action are Paul Thickening, Jim Banks,Jack Dally and Bob Gobin. Along with the varsity, the reserves also compiled an enviable record, wining 11 and losing 6. The members of the first five wero Jim Banks, Paul Volckening, John Elliott,Junior Smith, .and Jack Dally. Other players were R. Gobin, Van Atta, Sousley, Klinger, Hawley, Atha, Crates, and Jt Gobin. Coach Clyde Lamb came a long way with this year's team adding much to the development of each player, both mentally .and physically. This in itself is ample reward for the efforts put forth by the members of the squad.E - A, E - A Fight, fight, fight I ...7 Team, Team, 0° sV 0° e" 6- Tln 3' Ada High Ada High Ada fight And here Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, is known of old knocks 1em cold s and Ada wins is where the fight begins Rah, Rah, Ada Hi, Ada Hi Rah, Rah, Ada Hi, Ada Hi Rah, Rah, Ada Hi, Ada Hi YEA ADA i ? - 4 4 "h A°jW 1o2° V 3, o£ Team, Team, That's O.K. see that score but we want MORE Yea team, Yea team, Yea team Fight i T 2-3- who are we for tm « Soyou g0lng t0 yel1 for Thi . i lu Way you sPe11 A-D-A xnis is the way you yell it ADA, ADA.

The girls this year have shown a great interest in sports and have had tournaments in soccer, volley hall, kickhall, and basketball. The seniors won the majority of these tournaments. They won the soc-cer and kickball tournaments with the sophomores and juniors tying for second place. The sonhomores won the basketball and the juniors won the volley ball. Basketball proved to be one of the most exciting and interesting tourneys of the year. After the sophomores walked away with the honors between specific classes, everyone, from seventh to twelfth joined in a group tournament. Six teams were chosen to participate, one against the oth r. Heading these teams as captains were: Mary Alice Spar, Helen Wright, Marie Long. Patty Ryan, Betty Romick, and Jean Main. Miss Benroth says the purpose of these games is mainly for the experience the underclassmen will gain while playing with upperclassmen. Many junior high girls show great promise of being star players in their future years. The winner of this tourney was Team 1, Captain, Mary Alice Spar. A girl may win a letter, A, upon receiving 1.000 points. To obtain these points she may participate in the tournaments, act as an official in noon games, sell refreshments at night games, hike, attend mootings and act as a team captain. This year we had fouy senior girls who received letters. They are Mary Alice Spar, Helen Wright, Patty Ryan, and Marie Long. The club is for freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in athletics. A girl usually receives her letter in her senior year, although if she has enough points in her junior year she may receive her letter in that year.

As with the band Mr. Danford has continued the tradition of giving the students high musical standards which have always been a distinctive feature of our high school. This year tlqe orchestra again tried to live up to its standing reputation and the program for 1944-1945 was quite successful. It has played at many of the assemblios and other high school functions. Its crowning achievement was a spring concort of orchestral, solo, and ensemble numbers. Among these were Nocture from "Midsummer Night s Dream" by Kondolssohn, Russian Sailor Dance from "The Red Poppy" bby Rimsky-Korsakov, Star Dust by Hoagy Carmichael, Beautiful Lady from "The Pink Lady" by Ivan Caryll, March Slavo by Tschaikovsky, and March of the Ha.ostersingors from "The Kastersingors of Nurcmburg" by Wagner. gold uniforms are just a few of the things which make our band one of the outstanding organizations of the school. It has not only given our school spirit a boost at the football and basketball games, but it has greatly enlivened our pep meetings this year. A number of the band members arc underclassmen and although some fine musicians will be lost this year, the younger members show much talent and enthusiasm which will aid much in making up for the loss. I Activities this year seem to have been rather limited but the band participated in assomblies and in joint concerts which wore given and thus enriched the program. Music is an essential clement in community life as well as school life. Although the. band is more or less taken as a stationary fixture in our school and community life, it would not be the fine organization that it is, if it were not for its fine line of comoctont directors. Wo arc extremely fortunate to have with us this year, Kcllv Danford asSENIOR CHOIR The Senior Choir is composed of the students of the sophomore, junior and senior classes and is under the direction of Miss Betty Fravel. It is composed of two choirs, the Mixed Choir and Girls' Choin Both choirs entertained at Thanksgiving for their first appearance in the school year. The Mixed Choir gave a very impressive Christmas Vesper service and assisted in the Farmers' Institute hy singing several selections. However, the highlight in musical achievement for the year was the operetta, "Crocodile Island," given March 16. The leading characters in this colorful panorama of song were Mary Alice Spar, Lewis Good, Botty Stair, Boh Gobin, Herbert Clum, and John Elliott. The dances done by cighteon ballet girls added much color to this outstanding musical achievement. Due credit goes to Miss Fravcl who directed the music and to Mr. Danfcra who also helped to make this production possible. An onscmble, called the Treble Clef Club, is made up of twelve girls, who have sung for several occasions this year. Officers: Presidont: Vice President: Secretary-Treasurer: Accompanist: Randall Roberson Mary Spar Niles Araey Noil Davis. FRESHMAN CHOIR The Freshman Choir is composod of students of tho Freshman class and is also under the direction of Miss Botty Fravcl. It consists of 25 volunteer students. It is not hard to soo the importance of tho existence of such a choral group when one considers the training necessary for good singing. The vory ouroosc of this organization is to increase tho number of fine singers'that will in the future form the Senior Choir.

Carl Clum Mendelssohn High School Orchestra Kelly Danford, DirectorCLASS HISTORY On September 5, 1902, fifty-four snail, slightlv bewildered, and very excited children filed into the first grade classrooms to begin their school adventures. That was twelve years ago and now wc sit before you, the sane individuals—still excited and definitely bewildered. In those davs, there were two classes—one at the North building and one at the South building. In tho first grade we sat on pint-size chairs at little tables. Miss Wchc and Miss Gallant led us through the confusing symbols known as numbers and letters and finally wo emerged from the first ■"■ear of school able to read and write—a littla Miss McAlpin and Miss Reese made tho second grade fly. Wc learned to multiply and divide in tho third grade and took up art under the instruction of Miss A3I1 and Miss Kelly. The fourth grado led us to Mrs. Tallman and Miss Rundel who taught us long-division and supervised our rou her out-door games. Grade five finally brought the two classes together. There were sixty-one of us now, divided into classes which met in the two fifth-grade rooms in the north building. Between these two rooms a rivalry sprung up which caused much competition in classrooms as well as on the playgrounds. Miss Wagner and Miss McWilliams introduced us to history and the painting of our own Easter e gs. The sixth grade was the climax for the first period of our schooling. Mr. Miller and Mrs. Underwood subjected us to world history and geography and helped us through all the trials of our sixth grade graduation exercises. The seventh grade brought us to the High School building. We felt quite important, buzzing to and from classes, and found r.ew activities in assemblies and gvm classes. Our home room teachers were Mr. Taulbee and Mr. Hertz. Forty-seven eighth graders took up the next year's studies and activities. Two of our members ranked in the upoer one percent in the state ratings of eighth grade tests. Mrs. Hawk and Mr. Mertz were our home room teachers. Our Freshman year introduced us into the intricate high school life. The girls joined G. A. A.; the boys went out for Reserve basketball. Seven of them made the team and the rest went all out for intramural sports. Three fellows made the football team. Seven freshmen took general scholarship tests at Bowling Green State University on May 2. Our home room was the study hall with Mr. Eifer as teacher.As Sophomores the uppermost thought in our minds was participating in and winning the Interclass contest. On April 2, our four contestants made our hopes come true. We were represented in all the cluhs which we were permitted to join and added our support in music and sports. In the sports field our hoys helped the football team along to their undefeated season. We had two representatives on the Student Council instead of the one we had been allowed before. Our home room activities were supervised by Mr. Coleman and Miss Smith. Our Junior year was filled with many events but the most outstanding was the Junior-Senior Prom, which always is the great social event of the year. The Jiuiior Class Play, "The Valley of Ghosts," presented by ably talented members, was a huge success. The members of the class were active in all extra-curricular activities and had already begun to play a leading role in them. Five of our members represented us in the general scholarship test. Our class sponsors wore Miss iswander and Mrs. Anspach. Under the guidance of Mr. Lowman and Miss Crawford, we began the ye r of polishing up our education. We were almost finished with our long treck toward the day when we would be graduates. During the year we had vocational guidance to enable us to be more specific in our life's work. The young men of the class gave everyone something to talk about when they led the football team to an undefeated season of eight games. They also led the basketball team to a successful season, The girls were not idle during this time as several of thorn were busy earning their G. A. A. letters. The seniors were members of the band and orchestra, which made such a fine showing. All clubs had seniors enrolled in their midst. Five went to Kenton to the State Scholarship test and proved that the teachings of the yoars had not been in vain. In the general Scholarship test there were also five to represent us. Interclass contest minus the debate was again won by our four contestants. The drama, "Beyond the Horizon," presented by our class on May 3 and 4 proved to be a huge success. We chose as our motto: "Ad astra per aspera" and the white rose was our flower. Blue and white were our class colors. As the school year drew to an end we became anxious and slightly worried about our graduation exercises: Baccalaureate on May 20; Class Night on May 22; and finally Commencement on May 24. So our 34 members must say farewell and, as Bob Hope says, "Thanks for the memories." Esther Ellen Dobbins Richard Deringer 45 CLASS PROPHECY After perusing the 1965 almanacs, encyclopedias, and Who's Who, one will find that the graduates of Ada High School of the year 1945 have attained the far and distant goals expected of them at graduation. Some of the qualities lying dormant through high school and some which had even then evidenced themoelves ha e twenty years later blossomed forth into manifestations representing all the walks of life.
