The season opened on the gridiron of Wapak. It was here the NBulldogsU showed the stuff they were made of. Only after a bitter fight did the WBul1dogen go down to a 12-7 defeat. For the first home game of the season Ada played host to a rival Upper Sandusky team. The battling Bulldogs proved no match for the strong Upper Sandusky eleven and bowed out 27-O. Ada then staged a mild come back by playing Delphos Jefferson to B 6"6 ti9e The always fighting Bulldogs returned the next week to play a superior Carey team with a resulting score of 21-O. In the big game of the year with our county rivals Kenton, the Bulldogs reached a midseason form. Through this spectacular game the NBul1dogsu emerged victorious over the Hwildcatsn leore 6-O. At the last game of the year the Bulldogs 'were still giving everything they had but the overpowering Forest team claimed the vic- tory 19-6. By winning two games, tying one and losing five the Bulldogs can not claim what is called a nsuccessful season.n Even though they came out on the short end of the score five times, in most cases it was because they wer outclassed and not because they didn't play as hard as they could. The graduating seniors of the football team of N45Nx P. Bosse, D. Irwin, W. Fisher, C. Conley, J. Dally, G. Deringer, P. Volckening, G. Gilbert, R. Murray, N. Amey, J. Elliott, and B. Gobin, wish the in coming team the best of luck.

The first two games of the season were won with comparative ease. In the following four games the WBulldogs,N though defeated, gradually molded themselves into -a combination that could work together to win games. These five weve: Bosse and Volkening as forwards, Kreglow and Banks as guards, and Amey as center. Elliott in the sixth man posi- tion was an able substitute for any of the first five. This winning combination topped the next six teams with heavy scores, In the last three games of the season the boys gave way to slightly stronger teams The WBulldogsW entered the tournament with high hopes and a good chance to come out on top. Although the Ada five played five games in the tournament, they were beaten by Hicksville and dropped consohtbn game to Wbpak St, Joseph. Among the promising members of the reserve squad are Jim Gobin, Dave Sousley, Bob Daft, Arthur Amey, Jack Schindler, and Dean Klin- ger. The out-going seniors are: Niles Amey, Phil Bosse, Jim Banks. John Elliott, and Paul Volckening. Clyde Lamb as coach of the football and basketball teams' has been both coach and Wpalu to all associated with him. We wish him luck.

Other social events of the year were a chili-supper, exchange programs with Bluffton G. A. A., a bobby-sox dance, a box supper and valentine dance, play-night with Mount Cory High School girls, minor sports night at Taft Gymnasium and senior farewell banquet. During the year the girls had noon tournaments in the gymnasium of kickbsll, basketball, volleyball, dc!! tennins, and softball. The juniors made a Wbig sweepn by winning all except deck tennis in which the seniors were victorious. One of the most interesting tournaments proved to be a basketball tournament headed by Ruby's Rockets,Romick's Rompers, Creps's Champions, and Main Mighties. The Champions wen, starring that tall Junior, Loretta Darnell. The point system was changed this year and each girl must have 600 pointy for a letter and lOOO points for a gold pin, the highest award. Several letters were awarded at the senior farewell banquet and the following girls received pins! Lola Mae Van Atta, Willa Craps, Jean Main, Betty Romick, Betty Stair, Ruby Thompson, Agnes LaRue, and Kathleen Dearth. During one of our home basketball games, twenty G. A. A. girls put on a volleyball exhibition game for tho sixth graders. Girls also received points by selling at basketball and football games and the tournament. Our club was under the supervision of Lola.Mac Van Atta, presi- dent: Joyce Moore, vice president: Ruby Thompson, secretary, Evelyn Deringer, treasurer: Betty Stair and Betty Romick, intramural mana- gers and Mrs. Omler, adviser. CHEERLEADERS Again we are very proud to have three very active G. A. A. mem- bers as our cheerleaders, namely: Jean Main, Betty Stair, and Willa Crops. As reserve cheerleaders, Marjory Scott, Doris Clum, and Ann Michael made their appearance at each game. N. QQ I 745 ' F-s-I "Aix ' 4.5 1 Q, MP V' 3 L 1 VW 1-55. 52? f C5 , " . , A7 M 'fi fi "7 .

Miss Edna Buehler The Purple and Gold, official news voice of Ada High School, is published every month of the school year as a result of the combined efforts of Miss Buehler, the editorial staff, and the printing club. Ten issues of the 1945-1946 Purple and Gold were published, in- cluding the two special issues--the first one in the second week of school, and the last one a big senior issue. The aim of the newspaper staff was to bring the most news to the most students in the most interesting manner in the least time. Nur merous pictures of students active in schnol affairs were printed to make the paper more attractive and more interesting to more people. The printing class, who, without the aid of a regular instructor nevertheless printed ten issues of the paper, included Richard Irwin, Gene Gilbert, Lowell Umphress, and Harmon Binkley. iw Q My , N ING .

This prize was awarded for the outstanding dramatic achievement of the year. 'You Can't Take It With You' is the Type of play that will keep you in stitches laughing and at the same time slip in some good sound phi- losophy. The large play cast this year consisted of twenty-one members, who in the order of their appearance, are as follows: Mrs. Sycamore, Lucretia Johnsong Essie, Jean Main: Rheba, Alice Anspach,Agnes La Rue: Mr. Sycamore, Niles Ameyg Mr. De Pinna, Philip BossegEd, Robert Gobing Donald, Jack Dallyg Grandpa, Chester Neff: Alice, Betty Stair: Hender- son, Warren Fisher: Tony Kirby, Paul Volckeningg Mr. Kolenkhov, James Banks: Miss Wellington, Patty Bice, Virginia Schrauthg Mr. Kirby, John Elliott: Mrs. Kirby, Ruby Thompson: G-Men, James Carmean,Gene Gilbert, Richard Irwin. First Act In the First act the Sycamore family is introduced. In their household everyone does exactly what they want to. Mrs. Sycamore writes plays,Mre Sycamore and Mr. De Pinna make fireworks in the base- ment. Essie does ballet dancing and makes candy in her spare time. Ed plays the trombone and prints. Alice Sycamore announces to her family that she has been going with Tony Kirby Cher boss's sonj and that she has invited the family to dinner for the following evening. Second Act Later that same evening the Kirbys arrive. Mr. and Mrs. Kirby are in the wealthy social circle and inclined to be a little snobbish Because of their early arrival the Kirbys find the Sycamores unpro- pared to receive them. In this way they get a true picture of Alicefs family--a noisy, carefree group. After a series of misunderstandings, the Kirbys prepare to leave. They are met at the door by G-Men, who put them all under arrest because of some printed material Ed has un- willingly made. The act closes as the fireworks in the basement blow up. Third Act The next day when the family has explained evervthing to the G- men, they are released along with Mr. and Mrs. Kirby who were quite below their dignity in a jail cell. Alice is much disappointed because she and her family have not made a good impression on the Kirbys. Sho therefore gives up all hope of marrying Tony. He, however, is very insistent that Alice should marry him regardless of what has happened. Mr. Kirby arrives to take Tony home and in the course of events Grandpa persuades him that their way of life is not so bad after all. Tony and Alice receive Mrs.Kirbys blessing and the play ends happily. BY JUPITER ,The Junior Class Play, written by Julia Thompson, is a unique story which ran on Broadway for two years as a very popular stage show. The story of the play deals with the legendary Amazons, the lar bors of Hercules, and the Trojan War. There is a side glance at a love story between the two leads, "Theseus" a Greek warrior, and the Amazonian Princess, nAntiope.n The story takes place in an Amazonian Queendom where the women do the fighting and ruling while the men are just a domestic convenience. To their land comes an army of Greek warriors, sight seeing on their way to seize Troy and lend a hand to half-wit Hercules. -The latter promised Homer, his publicity man, to steal the sacred girdle of the Amazon's queen, Hippolyta. The warriors call a truce for the night and in the morning are the best of friends. With his expert kisses, more than his sword and shield, Theseus is winning over the princess. The climax comes when Sapiens, Hippolyta's band, is drafted into the army. Meanwhile tho zone and Theseus takes Antiope back to Greece as Along with love comes humor and music which riment and adventure, The cast included the entire class but is their appearance: effeminate young hus- Greeks leave tho Amar his wife. also adds to the mer- featured in order of Gloria Welsh as lst Sergeant: Joyce Moore as Buria: Marjoqy Scott as 2nd Sergeant: Peggy Main as lst Sentry: Lenore Lindahl as 2nd sn- try: Ina May Fender as 5rd Sentry:Doris Abbott as Cuusica:Bonnie Huff- man a Heroica: Margery Zehner as Pomposia: mother of Sapiens: Loretta Darnell as Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons: Urban Long as Sapiens, the ueen's husband: Ruby Baughman as Antiope, the Princess: Wilma 'Shade ley as Captain of the Archers: Arthur Amey as Theseus, a Greek warrior and sweetheart of Antiope: Clyde High as Homer: Betty Tinsler as The Runner: Bob Allen as Hercules: Neil Davis as Gaganius: Bob Dilts as Achilles: and Bob Hubbell as Ajax. 1 X c N l. 1.

Brown Recessional Mendelssohn High School Orchestra Kelly Danford, Director ODE to the SENIORS by Willa Creps and Chester Neff O' Seniors we are, and we longingly gaze At azure horizons: our youth being drawn To fire the great world with ambition and song, And try to renew what has weakened and gone. Through the long centuries from medieval ages What thoughts have arisen to your mind and ours Concerning the heritage coming as in showers From long-dead ancestors and eternal sages? O' that the coming age will have done as well Toward leaving to earth culture eternal As our forbearers have enlightened the ages By their undying wisdom, phi1osophy's immortal. So have we entered, so shall we leave our experience Which then becomes memory--bitter and sweet. Let us remember those memories, for l1fe's street Will be enriched by memories' essence. O' Seniors we were and are new prepared To face the temptations and uncertainty of life To the fullest extent that we overcome strife And can pit our will against fate and be spared. So when we embark on 1ife's voyage we must think Of Him who helped us as sheep in the fold. Let us come unto Him and let ue behold The blessed message which the Master brings. Then as some of the mysteries of life unfold We wait with anticipating joy for the morrow: Always impatient until age and thought o'er takes Us on the path we follow for knowledge and gold. So as in youth we seek the glowing and wondrous star Sparkling like a fiery diamond on draped velvet We are now ready to reach yon shining star O'er the broad and pure highway heralding success.

CLASS HISTORY FOR CLASS OF 1946 Tonight there sits before you one of the greatest classes ever to graduate from Ada High. Out of this class, eleven of the present thirty-nine students started their school days at the south building fourteen at the north building--and nineteen of that same twenty-five have completed their entire school career in good old Ada. Six that started back there in 1934 later CamG back to graduate with us. Miss Gallant and Miss Wehevvwith a bangu started us off towards the goal of graduation which we have attained. In the second grade Miss Reese and Miss Whitworth taught us some of the things a second grader ought to know. In the third grade, Miss Kelly and Miss McBride taught us not to tease the younger boys and girls by means of cracking of hands with a yard stick. In the fourth grade Miss Rundell and Mrs. Tallman took over and tried to teach us just how multiplication and division was SUPPOSED to be done. During this year the Hspelling been between the north and south buildings proved to be the cause of loads of excite- ment. In 1938 we were pretty well grown up--we thought--getting to go upstairs and use Miss Wagner's and Miss McWilliams' rooms. During our fifth grade we were taught how to get out of the building in case of a fire--down those strips of iron, better known as fire escapes. At the beginning of the year, the two buildings were united into one fifth grade. At first this caused a lot of rivalry. In the sixth grade we were really growing up fast. Now each class was given the opportunity to change class rooms instead of the teachers doing the changing. Mr. Miller and Mrs. Underwood were our home room teachers. We can all re- member how Mrs. Underwood gave true and false tests and all the ans- wers were true and how Mr. Miller taught us how to make snow forts and play baseball. On rainy days we could go into the auditorium and play checkers, dominoes, and so forth. Near the end of the school year we were invited by the seventh graders over to the high school building to visit for a WHOLE day. We were bewildered by all the various bells and even more surprised at the noise and confusion when the classes moved. Our sixth grade graduation exercise was the greatest event we had known. We all had new clothes and spoke our pieces just so. From the sixth grade, fifty lost and exceedingly stupid kids came stringing out to Nthe old brain factory,H better known as Ada High School, where they began their notorious careers. Many of the high school teachers thought it was a useless attempt to keep such fugi- tives from Wthe house of correctionn under control--but look at us now, the greatest class ever to graduate from this great school. Dur- ing this seventh year we had as able sponsors Miss Baum and Miss Mc- Donald. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Hoops and the ever-faithful Mrs. Hawk, we managed the eighth grade. Most of the year was spent in pre- paration for the eighth grade tests which came in April. Dorothy Rod- gers, of course, led the group as she has through her entire school years. For our eighth grade assembly we gave a short play from Shake- spears. Fifty-one students began their high school life under the leader- ship of Robert Gobin as president and Mr. Zimmer, class Sponsor. To swell our ranks, Roger Murray and Niles Amey joined our class. Our boys were allowed to participate in a few sports, as were ourrgirls permitted Bo Join the G. A. A. We were also honored -by attending the high school parties. In the sophomore year we were honored by having the big study hall for our home room and Mr. Roy Iams as our sponsor. Jean Main reigned over the class as president. We are now taking our place in the Interclass Contest for the first time. Dorothy Rodgers, Chester Neff,Patty Bice and Miriam Dearth CWillekel represented us and brought us to victory. Our original stunt also won top honors, and so the great sophomore class ruled the Spanish Banquet on the following night. During this year Chester Neff and Lucretia Johnson joined us. Our boys were members of the Hi-Y and our girls were taken into the G. R. for the next year. The F. H. A. and F. F. A. also attracted a num- ber Of Our group. The football and basketball squads showed that there were a good many Sophomores interested in sports. Under the leadership of Paul Volckening and sponsorship of Miss Edna Buehler, we started the many tasks that confront a struggling Junior. This year was one of great excitement as we thought of pro- ducing a class plan and sponsoring a banquet and prom for the seniors of that year. WBest Foot Forwardn was selected for our debut in act- ing--and what a debut--by POPULAR demand we presented our play the second time. Class assignments were forgotten and we later thought about the junior-senior prom. The gymnasium was cleverly decorated with the theme of WThe River of the Roseau being used throughout all designs. We had a real river and bushels and bushels of roses. The interclass contest is nothing to speak of as we lost, but nevertheless our contestants put a lot of time and effort oniheir projects. Doro- thy Rodgers, Chester Neff, Patty Bice and Miriam Dearth Cwiiiskeb rs- presented us again this year. The stunt was our shining point, howw ever, s we took it foroar second year. To perfect the perfect, the class of '46 undertook their senior year with an enthusiasm which has never before echoed down the halls of Ada High School. With practically all the boys represented on the football squad, six on the basketball squad and baseball we once again started,-you can see that sports were one of the greates high- lights of the entire year. INCIDENTALLY, the seniors won the inter- class contest for the second time, and the stunt for the third conse- cutive year. Dorothy Rodgers, Chester Neff, Lucretia-Johnson, and Robert Gobin Represented us, As the year drew to a close the clall was very sorry to lose one of its classmates, Roger Murray, to the U. 5. Navy. However, here's the best of luck to you and navy blues, Roger. For the senior play, we produced the three act comedy entitled WYou Can t Take It With Youn which proved to be a very great success. The only new recruit added to our ranks this year was the one and only Mark Anthony McPheron. We were honor guests later in the year, at the annual Junior-senior banquet and prom. We had a grand evening and wish to express our gratitude to the junior class for all their efforts and co-operation with Miss Huber in planning this gala affair. Piloted by Niles Amey as president, Robert Gobin as vicedpresi- dent, Joyce Underwood as secretary, Richard Irwin as treasurer and under the sponsorship of Miss Evelyn Smith, we completed the senior year safe and sound and present ourselves for your approval. ' Now with sad hearts we say goodbye to Ada High and start along 1ife's way. We thank you for the greatest days of our lives. May we soon reach our goal of success and look back and say that Ada High was really our foundation--and a good one too.
