To Ada Hi our own school V e raise our song today.
We praise thee now we serve thee In all our work and play.
Our colors always flying,
We'11 keep them ever up on high.
To Ada Hi, our own school,
V e'11 praise thee to the sky.
For high school halls and high school walls We love thee best of all.
If we work upon marble, it will perish; if on brass, time will efface it;if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, and imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and love of our fellow-men, we engrave on those tablets something that will brighten to all eternity.

On Kay 8 and 9 the class of ’47 presented a hilarious comedy, "The Daffy Dills." The Dills are an average American family. The father, Richard Dill, is a widower with four children: Carol and Rod, of high school age,
and Doris and Dud, thirteen-year old twins. The grandmother, who lives with the family, spoils the children and refuses to make them lift a finger to help Arnica, the negro housekeeper. Consequently, the house is always in a shocking state of neglect.
When the story "begins, we learn that Mr. Dill has secretly married Elaine Escott, a secretary from St. Louis. Mr. Dill appeals to his neighbor, Mrs. Woggles, to help Elaine get acquainted with the family. Mrs. Woggles, a widow with her own cap set for Mr. Dill, is rather hostile at first but finally decides that any woman who has to be a stepmother to the four Dill children is more deserving of pity than envy.
When the Dills learn of Elaine, they are resentful and plot to make her life with them very unpleasant. Elaine, however, turns out to be a very competent young woman who decides to fight fire with fire and so succeeds in foiling all her step-children's plans. The act put on by the family to discourage Elaine finally comes to a climax. Carol is in the last stages of tuberculosis, Rod throws temper-tantrums, Doris has hallucinations. Dud has St. Vitus' dance, and Gran continually threatens to commit suicide. Pete and Aimee, friends of Dud and Carol, are acting as their keeper and nurse. These and other attempts to drive Elaine away, however, prove futile.
Cousin Maude Maddox from Peoria, a sweet and lovable woman, arrives for a visit in the midst of all the commotion. The children and Gran, who have never met Cousin Maude before, take an instant liking to her.
Cousin Maude prepares to leave the Dili house when Elaine tells her that the family is bankrupt and cannot afford to keep a guest. But the children and Gran beg Maude to stay, for they have come to love her dearly. At this moment Mr. Dill arrives home. He enters and embraces Cousin Maude, who, it turns out, is not Cousin Maude at all, but their stepmother, Elaine. The real Cousin Maude had been masquerading as Elaine in order to put an end to the pranks of the children. As the play ends she decides to go out West
to straighten out the affairs of some of her relatives in California.

Most of the members are found in various church choirs of Ada and near-by churches and various individuals or ensembles are called upon frequently to contribute to programs of local service and social dubs. Many from this group joined the university and local singers in the production of the "Messiah" in December.BAND

The juniors presented for their class play Pauline Phelps' dramatization of "Little Women," based on the novel written by Louisa M. Alcott. The play was given on the evenings of November 14 and 15.
The story centers about four sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy
March—and portrays their adolescence during the l860's. The play begins in the year I863. Reverend Mr. March is a chaplain in the army and his family is struggling to make ends meet at home. When the
curtain opens, Hannah, the maid, is calling the girls to their
Christmas breakfast. Mrs. March, better known as "Marmee," finds it difficult to bear the fact that her husband is not home for Christmas. However she and her daughters console themselves by taking their own meal to a needy family. Hannah declares she has never seen "such goin’s on" in all her life !
After several years have elapsed, love affairs begin to develop. Jo discovers Meg and John Brooke together and calls her parents so that they may "expel all this nonsense" from the March household. When Laurie Lawrence tries to make love to her, she discourages him and says that old maids really lead a pleasant life—after they get used to it ! Amy had been treated to a trip abroad by .Aunt March, and Laurie leaves for Europe soon afterwards. They return from Paris bearing the same name. When Jo asks Laurie if he has really been
married, he replies, "Yes, please, but I’ll never do it again."
Beth dies that summer from scarlet fever and Jo is almost inconsolable. Now that she sees how happy Meg and Amy are with their husbands, she begins to regret her own decision. The one man who holds any interest for her is a German professor whom she has met in New York. But Professor Bhaer returns to Germany, and Jo has no hope of ever seeing him again.
However, the day arrives when Professor Bhaer returns to America to start a boys' preparatory school. Then Aunt March steps in and
proves that her heart is in the right place after all. She atones for
sending Amy abroad instead of Jo by giving the latter her inheritance ahead of time so that she and her German professor may establish the school. Happiness reigns in the March household.
Aunt March had never approved of the way her nephew and his wife were bringing up their children, but the girls turned out to be pretty fine "little women" after all.

s h 11 Let y y ix. s l ' r ' , i v CLASS HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ''47"
Only 12 short years ago, 52 young and inexperienced children entered tfee first year of their exciting school life. Of those who now sit before you, 17 started with us in the first grade. Our very patient first grade teachers, were Miss Wehe and Miss Gallant, who taught us the fundamentals of the 3 R s. We were then a divided group. The total enrollment at the south building was 21; while at the north building there were 31.
We finally advanced to the second grade. Still ununited we were placed under the able supervision of Miss Whitworth and Miss Povenmire. Here we were introduced to the intricacies of subtraction. This year marked the close of country schools in our community.
Miss McBride and Miss Kelly led us through our third grade with flying colors. During this year we had a spelling bee between pupils of the south and north buildings. The student who ranked highest received a prize. We were all eager to win so as to bring glory to our own building.
In 1938 Mrs. Tallman and Miss Overly taught us long division and assisted us in presenting our first operetta, which was directed by Miss Edwards.
As we entered the fifth grade we were at last united into one class with a total of 49 members. Miss Wagner and Miss McWilliams helped to further our education.
The sixth grade brought about our first graduation, also our first supervised playground activities which were led by Mr. Joe Banks. Mrs. Tail-man and Mrs. Underwood guided us through our final year of grade school. This year was climaxed by a grand and glorious party at the home of Mrs. Tallman, which no member of the 1947 graduating class will ever forget.
Junior High brought about many new experiences such as school parties, gym classes, clubs, and other activities. We were under the guidance of Miss Edwards, Miss Mills, and ’Mr. LeVan.
Our freshman year we had the right to choose our own subjects, also we were permitted to join G.A.A., F.H.A., and F.F.A. This year we were eligible to attend the Senior High parties. The dlass was led by Ruby Eaughman, as president.
Marjorie Scott led us through our sophomore year with Miss Smith and Miss Huber as our sponsors. This was our first year of Interclass, which was not too successful. However, we tried again with renewed hope the following year. Our boys joined Hi-Y and the girls G.R. ’We all took an active part in club work and in the various sports of the school.
The opening of our junior year brought with it many successful events. Among these were the Junior play "By Jupiter", in which every member of the class participated and which was directed by Kelly Danford. In May the clas6 put on one of the biggest and greatest proms in the history of Ada High. The theme was an "Old Dutch Garden", which was successfully directed by Miss Huber, our adviser. We entered the interclass contest with as much vigor as the year before but again we were disappointed by defeat. James Kreglow piloted us through this prosperous year.Last fall we started adding the finishing touches to our highly successful school career. We elected Robert Hubbell as President, Arthur Amey as Vice President, Neil Davis as Secretary and Wilma Shadley, Treasurer. Miss Crawford and Mr. Shoemaker were our advisers. We felt much honored to have Eddie Gossard, an ex G.I. in our midst. We were the first class to have a returned veteran enrolled.
Senior Day was our first great event of the year,and Joyce Moore reigned as queen with Gloria Welsh and Lenore Lindahl as her attendants.Lester Kindle was named honorary captain of the football team and James Kreglow of basketball. All of our boys took an active part in the school sports. In the interclass contest we entered four eager contestants to represent our class. The judges decision was in favor of the juniors, BUT, our cleverly arranged stunt received first place.The next great highlight of the year was the Senior Play The Daffy Dills", in which 12 members of our class participated, under the direction of Miss Buehler.
We were later the honorary guests of the juniors, who put an the Junior-Senior Prom and Banquet. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to the Junior Class and their sponsor Mr. Pfeil.
We the class of '47 are here this evening to bid a regretful but fond farewell to the halls of Ada High. We hope that our being here has been as much pleasure to you as it has been to us. As all good things must come to an end we say "Adieu."

May the classes which follow in our footsteps never feel that "47" is dead, merely because our last will and testament is published, but may they profit by these, our long-loved possessions, which we now bestow upon them.
To the faculty, who have so willingly and so carefully guided us along the paths of knowledge to the safe harbor of wisdom, we leave with great gratitude remembrances of the past, good wishes for the present and bright hopes for the future.
To our friendly enemy, the junior class, we grudgingly bequeath the senior homeroom along with its various benefits and privileges. We also leave the cherished rights of producing a senior play, paying for various commencement and graduation activities, and winning the inter-class contest and stunt.
Our jewels which have adorned us upon many occasions we now dispense as follows:
To Paul Goble, Neil Davis wills his pompous figure.
To Clair McCurdy, Wilson Keller leaves his ability to play outstanding football.
Russell Kimble leaves his mustache to Jerry Colona.
To the junior class, Bob Dilts wills his quietness and timid personality.
Joyce Moore leaves Ada High School for "Good".
Peggy Main bequeaths the Purple and Gold to memories of Ada High School.
Roger Tarr leaves his driving ability to "Rusty" Zimmer.
Robert Stauffer leaves his dog at home.
To Marcia Marshall, Marge Zehner leaves her flirtatious ways. Vera Morris leaves her speaking ability to next year's speech class.
To the future biology classes, Jim Marshall leaves his brain. To all the eighth grade girls,Jean Deringer wills her quietness. Arthur Amey leaves his calm, quiet air to Joan Ream.
Bob Allen leaves Ada High School—if he arrives at commencement on time.
Jim Kreglow leaves his hogs and basketball playing for Ohio State.
Bob McMillen leaves his scientific ingenuity to next year's physics class.
To the Freshmen boys, Clyde High leaves his address books along with directions.
Aaron Hicks bequeaths his "accent" to Miss Crawford's Latin Classes.
Ina May Fender leaves her swing to the garden gate.Bonnie Huffman wills her jokes and crazy actions to the Marx Brothers.
Meanwhile Helen Grieser leaves Ada in a Model A Coupe.
Charles Elliott will leave the financial problems of Ada High School to any one capable of handling them.
Wilma Mansfield leaves her pleasing personality to Betty Lou Michael.
Catherine Miller leaves her quietness to echo in the halls of Ada High.
Bob Hubbell wishes to leave his big mouth to any one who loves to argue.
Charles Kerr leaves his speedy life to any turtle.
To next year's Social Problems’ class, Lenore Lindahl leaves her answers to the race problem.
Marjorie Scott leaves her sports ability to Joan P.outson.
Wilma Shadley leaves her wit and artistic ability to no one. No one can compare.
Dorothy Staley leaves her extreme height to Evelyn "Shorty" Deringer.
Ray Wright leaves high school for farming.
Elizabeth Jane Tinsler leaves her clarinet playing ability to Anne Michael.
Florence Weishampel leaves her foreign languages to Willard Bailey.
Gloria J. Welsh bequeaths her ability to write short stories to Jean Snyder.
Urban L. Long wills his effeminate acting ability to "Jackie" Schindler.
Ruby Baughman bequeaths her "Ipana" smile to Pepsodent's "Miriam."
Doris Abbott wishes to bequeath her French Horn to some windy personality.
Loretta Darnell wills her pen and a year's supply of ink to Pat Moore.
Hilda Binkley wills her dark hair to Ruth Ann McMillen.
Esther Dearth bequeaths her good sportsmanship to Betty Klingler.
James Hooper leaves----to the relief of the teachers.
Jean Keller leaves her lisping to Shirley Hindall.
Lester Kindle leaves his football captaincy to anyone who has the qualifications.
As executor of this will, we, the class of 1947, do hereby appoint M. Crawford, Professor of Department of Languages and Senior Class adviser at Ada High School.
In witness where of we have hereunto affixed our seal and subscribed our names on this twenty seventh day of May, nineteen hundred and forty seven.
Signed and Sealed
---Rohoct.Huhhe11 THIS LIFL OF OURS
We live in a world not of words but of deeds,
Life built high on faith and the hope of our God.
For on Him we rely for our every need;
He brings us back when astray we have trod.
Our day is in turmoil and rage we now find.
We pray for the future and His loving care,
That our names be written in gold on that page And our record be found in handwriting clear.
Our youth is no longer so short nor so young
The days free from care have so gently slid past.
The first verse of life has for us now been sung,
Our childish bright ways far away wo have cast.
Our days all are numbered as we know quite woll.
The future is uncertain as you can see.
We listen intent to tho things that you toll
And gladly accept them with our fancy free.
Our past has been marred by a second World War It clouds our tomorrow with memories cold,
The class of forty-seven intent on its fame
Will meet the future with hearts strong and bold.
We of this generation have a battle to fight
A fight to make this world free, loving, and strong,
Not strong in armies, fleets, and flashing insignia
But in brotherhood that will bind an ever lasting throng.
And now as we pass from these halls and these walls Our lives and ideals right down to tho lino,
Lot us not forget that our motto should be--"To err is human, to forgive is divine."
