So this book has not attained perfection, but it re- presents the best efforts of the staff. Love's labor is never lost, and if, in the years to come, when the burdens of life are heaviest, this humble volume shall aid in recalling to mind the activities end friend- ships of youth, our labor shall not have been in vain, and the work in publishing this annual will be repaid.

THL PURPLE AND GOLD Volume XVII of the Purple and Gold, the nofficial news voice of Ada High School,U was published throughout the school year by a selected staff with the co-operation of the administration, faculty, students, the Ada Herald, and the printing classes. Its form was changed this year from a small, three-column, eight-page monthly, to a larger four-column, four-page bi-weekly newspaper. Staff members met monthly to discuss problems, methods, and styles of writing, and to evaluate their work. Because of financial difficulties, the P Q G had a bake sale on January 31. The students responded enthusiastically to the appeal for their support in this project. A sophomore team and a junior team tied for first place in the amount of baked goods contributed to this highly successful sale. uChristmas,U nApril Special issues during the year included the Fool's,UVWho's tho,UVSenior,n and UThank Youu issues. The latter was the first paper published on the new press given by Mrs. George Stambaugh. and names as well as The paper attempted to emphasize individuals to cover the activities of all organizations and important events. News of the future, rather than the past, was stressed. A poll of student opinion on controversial and timely subjects was made under the sponsor- ship of the paper. The results of the poll were turned over to the Stu- dent Council and to the administration for their consideration and action. Members of the classes which printed the paper include Lowell Umphress and Harmon Binkley, student instructors, and George Parshall, Charles Moore, and Everette Swinney.

Its purpose is to build a fellowship of women and girls devoted to the task of realizing in our common life those ideals of personal and social living to which we are committed by our faith as Christians. Forty-seven junior and senior members are enrolled this year. The sophomore girls join in March at a special candlelight service. In December, the Y-Teens sponsored the district convention with eight other school groups as visitors.

There are three children: Caroline, who is like her mother: John Junior, her typical teen-age brother: and Anna, who is as warm and kind-hearted as her sister is not. Frank Graham, a neighbor, is mysteriously ,in- terested in Lena, but his jealous wife cannot bear to see her son Cby a former marriagej, Durward Bellmont, become interested in the girl when it has always been taken for granted he'd marry Caroline. Anna, unknown to her parents, is in love with Malcolm Everett, a tutor in the Livingstone home. Aunt Milly is a colored servant who does not like to be bossed: but who likes to boss the other servants, especially Old Caesar, who is always Nfixin' to do.n John and Anna become friends of Lena, who in turn helps Anna and Malcolm in their cause. Mrs. Livingstone tries to ruin Lena's life by gossip and a scandal she starts. I In the happy ending, however, Frank Graham reveals himself as Lena's father, and Anna and Malcolm, Caesar and Milly, and Durward and Lena are united.

ACT I. Olarice Borland, ambitious for her daughter's marriage to Tish's nephew, calls on Madame Gasparilli, who, after surreptitious prompting by Clarice, locates Tish's brooch. Then, bribed by Clarice, Madame prophe- sies Gil will marry Trudi, so Tish is satisfied. Gil returns home and reveals that he has suffered amnesia while roaming the world. Tish loses no time in telling him that he must propose to Trudi, the girl of her choice, or be disinherited, Fifty grand looks good to Gil, so he pro- mises. Trudi, already in love with Hap, is heartbroken, and Hap and Fats decide that to prevent the marriage, they will pose as foreign wives whom Gil is supposed to have married while he was an amnesia victim. ' AGT II. To Trudi's dismay, Gil proposes and because of her mother's high blood pressure she has to accept. Sue thinks that Gil is her former fi- ance who suddenly left her. Soon Hap enters as Lolita, a Whot tamalen from Mexico, who says she is Gil's wife, Before Gil has recovered from the Shock of Lolita, Fats as Princess Boogie-Woogie, a cannibal, makes his entrance as Gil's wife, too. To settle the wives' quarrel over Gil, lolita decides to take only his heart and Boogie-Wbogie will eat the rest of him. Gil suddenly makes a break for the door and dashes out with his wives close at his heels. ACT III.

Tish becomes so thoroughly dis- gusted with Hotchkiss and his aching tooth that she calls a dentist, Dr. Jonesby. Before the deaf doctor can be told who his patient is, he tries to pull several persons' teeth, among them Gil's. From this shock, Gil regains his memory and recognizes Sue as his fiancee. Madame Gasparilli and Clarice are made to confess their plot by Hap and Fats, so Trudi and Hap announce their engagement.

If FOOTBALL The football season opened on August 20 with forty-two boys eager to play ball. Bbr the next three weeks the team literally nsweat it outn under a blazing sun in order to get in shape for their first game with Wapak. The Wapak game was unique in several ways. Besides being the first game of the season, it was also the first game to be played in Memorial Park under the new field lights. The Bulldogs made a good showing in their new uniforms and beat Wapak 6 to O. At Bluffton it was a different story. Over-confidence was the cause of the Bulldog's first and only defeat. The Bulldogs again started playing their good brand of football and defeated their next three opponents--Hicksville, Carey, and Delphos Jefferson. It will be especially remembered that the defeat of Delphos Jefferson, 38 to 7, climaxed Queen's Day. A week later the Bulldogs went to Kenton and played in quite a thriller. The Wildcats came up from behind in the last quarter and turned our apparent victory into a 13 to 13 tie. Ada's last three victims showed little resistance to the Bulldogs' drives. Paulding did not cross the line once and was beaten 19 to O. Squad members' fathers sat on the bench on Dads' Day to watch their sons beat Forest 14 to 7. On November 7 the Bulldogs completed a very suc- cessful season by defeating Elida, last yeaI's champs, 27 to 12. SEASON'S RECORD Ada 6 .. ... Wapakoneta O Ada 6 .. .... Bluffton 12 Ada 15 .. ...

Twenty-eight of this group began their school life in Ada, fourteen at the south building and fourteen at the north building. Miss Reese and Miss Hehe were the kind teachers who guided us through our first year. Proud but still unexperienced we advanced to the second grade, where Miss Povenmire and Miss Whitworth tried in vain to teach us to spell. The students of the north and south building met for the first time at a spelling bee held at the north building. Under the able supervision 'of Miss Kelly and Miss McBride we learned the difficult fundamentals of multipication in the third grade. In 1959 we entered the fourth grade eager to learn more as we ad- vanced through school. Miss Armstrong and Mrs. Tallman were our capable advisors. The following year in the fifth grade, led by Miss Wagner and Miss McWilliams we were at last united. Under the direct- ion of Miss Titus the operetta UThe Fbrest Court,U which was presented here recently, was given by the grade school. At last our dreams were fulfilled as we entered the sixth grade and became upper-classmen. During this year Mrs. Tallman and Mrs. Underwood prepared us for the day so long looked forward to when we would graduate and enter junior high. In 1942 ,with six years of school behind us, we approached Ada High with great anticipation for the years to como. Miss Mills, Mrs. Tallman, Mrs. Coleman, and Mrs. Hawk helped us through the difficult years of junior high. Much competition was shown in the eighth grade tests with Sara Lou Dobbins receiving top honors.- A The ninth grade found us entering many more activities, joining new clubs and preparing for our life work by choosing our own courses. Miss Benroth and Mrs. Anspach were our faculty advisers and we elected James Gobin as our class president. Our sophomore year found us in the study hall with Mr. Pfeil as our adviser. This year our interests turned more and more toward athletics as our boys began participating in basketball and football. Later in the year our class united with one main purpose in mind--to win the Interclass Contest. Although we lost the contest we surely gave the class of '46 a Wrun for their money.' James Gobin again was our class president. Under the leadership of Shirley Hindall and sponorship of Mr. Pfoil, we started the many tasks that confront a struggling junior. One of the most outstanding events of our junior year was our class play nLittle Women.n We were all proud of the talent the cast showed and thev all received the backing of the entire class. Under an azure sky and twinkling stars tho theme of our junior-senior prom,nStardustf was carried out. This is one of the memories of our school life which we will always cherish. It was during this year that we won the Inter- class Contest and the much-desired cup. Although most of our school years were filled with joy there were times of sorrow. Two of our closest classmates, Luther Campbell and Jack Schindler,werc taken from us during our sophomore and junior year respectively. As our school life came to a close and we began our senior year, we found the pages of our book of memories becoming rapidly filled. The first week of school we elected Karl Spar as our class president to lead us through our last year. He was aided by Robert Daft, vice- president,Shirley Hindall,secretary, and Patricia Thompson, treasurer. A successful football season was high-lighted by the dedication of the new Memorial Park drew to a close with the election of James Gobin and David Sousley as honorary co-captains. Jackie Lamb, attended by Anne Michael and Doris Clum, reigned as football queen on Senior Day. Our class was well represented in basketball by having five senior boys on the varsity team. Dean Klingler was elected honorary captain. For the second consecutive year we were the honored guests at the Inter- class Banquet because of our victory at the contest the night before. We chose as our senior class play VLena Riversn which was presented on May 6 and 7 and directed by Miss Edna Buehler. Jean Snyder and Sara Lou Dobbins were chosen as co-valedictorians,the second in the history of Ada High School, with Shirley Hindall as salutatorian. They were named because of their exceptional grades throughout school. New we come to the fork in the road, with our school years behind us and our journey into life, before us. It is up to us to choose which road we will fellow. No matter how far we may drift apart no one can take the wonderful memories of each other and Ada High School from us. With this thought in mind we leave Ada High wishing the best of luck to the rest of you.
