Ten issues of the eighteenth volume of The Purple and Gold were published in 19U8-19U9 through the combined effort of the staff, faculty, administration, and community. Special features in each edition of the paper were the opinions of teachers and students voiced in editorials; In the Spotlight ; and complete summaries of all athletic events. Finances for the student newspaper are obtained through advertising by local businessmen, sale of the activity ticket, and subscriptions to the paper. Printing is done by the printing classes of Ada High School in cooperation with the Ada Herald. Members of the printing class are Lowell Umphress, Hannon Binkley, George Parshall, Neal Paugh, Joe Klingler, and Charles Moore. Outstanding issues of the 19h8-19h9 volume were a six-page Christmas issue and a special senior edition. For comparison, information, and improvement. The Purple and Gold was exchanged with eighteen high school papers in Ohio and one from Chillicothe, Illinois. Policies of the paper were upheld in all writing. Accurate and interesting accounts of all social, musical, scholastic, and athletic events were the aim of the staff writers in an attempt to produce a written and pictorial history of Ada High School.STUDENT COUNCIL President------- Vice President-Secretary— Treasurer-------- Sergeant-At-ArmS' Adviser--------- ■—Lowell Umphress ■Sara Jane Kregloir ---Betty Klingler •—Jeanette Murray ----Russell Moore ----Miss Crawford The other class representatives of the council are; Robert Messick (Senior), Lee Tinsler (Junior), Clara Weishampel, Donna Trowbridge (Sophomores), Glen Ernsberger (Freshman), Gloria Nichols (Eighth), Joan Tressel (Seventh). PURPOSE: To promote wholesome and efficient relationship between students and faculty, to foster law and order, to arouse a loyalty to Ada High Sehool and her activities, and to develop a high appreciation of fine character. The Student Council is composed of representatives elected annually from the different classes. There are four from the twelfth grade, three from the eleventh grade, two from the tenth grade, and one each from the ninth, eighth, and seventh grades, making a total of twelve members in the council. These twelve members, with their adviser, meet the first and third Monday of each month for a forty-five minute period. The council attempts to follow correct parliamentary procedure in its meetings and has its own written constitution and bylaws. The Student Council works through three general groups. The social committee, composed of three standing members and class representatives, supervises three senior high parties and two junior high parties a year. The assembly committee arranges all assemblies and schedules speakers, movies, and plays. This group is made up of the class vice presidents, and three council members. The monitors, junior and senior boys- help to control hall traffic. Among the worth-while projects which have been sponsored throughout the year by the Student Council arc: Activity Tickets Assemblies Bulldog Plates Christmas Tree and Decorations School Parties Interclass Contest and Banquet Fade-Out Titler Guy Bingham, Psvchologist New Sweeper with Hi-Y and Y-Teens.INTERCLASS CONTEST The traditional annual Interclass Contest was held in the high school auditorium March 25, 19h9.

The setting is the local high school where the Senior Class of Ada High is giving the last dress rehearsal of The House of Terror before its real performance the next night. The drama coach, her assistant, and the stage manager are all present. Many complications set in during the rehearsal and The House of Terror is never finished that evening because the heroine is actuall’' abducted through a secret panel. Naturally this stops the rehearsal and the characters assume their own names and actions while solving this mystery. Ihe cast in The House of Terror Lita Mason Jerry Goodhue Jenny Russell Herbert Mason Aunt Emma Mason Paul Reed the heroine the hero the comedy maid the character man the character lady the villain was: Marcia Marshall Lowell Umphress Jane Gilbert Willard Bailey Janet Harrod Don Paugh Miss Hover Miss Willeke Red Fisher Mrs. Smith Joe Worthington Clarence Smith The other characters were: the drama coach the assistant director the stage manager Don's mother the author the sheriff Audrey Hover Sarah Y illeke Robert Fisher Betty Smith Joe Worthington Clarence Smith The curtain opens revealing the mysterious and spooky atmosphere of an old house. The last rehearsal of The House of Terror has started. Ihe characters in the play are kept on edge by the raging storm, stranpe and weird noises, and a very brooding tvpe of atmosphere. They all sense that an evil presence is hovering over than. Suddenlv the heroine faints after beinr warned b a strange voice that she must leave the cast at once or suffer the consequences. The director, believing this to be a prank played bv some member of the cast, orders the rehearsal to continue. In the next act the author of the play, whom the cast was expecting, makes his appearance. Soon after he leaves, the heroine is suddenly spirited through the secret panel by a masked man. To conclude this act the wounded and unconscious author falls from the panel on to the stage. The cast is frantic and the comedy sheriff is called. He enters with the heroine, who explains that she had screamed when her kidnapper was carrying her, and he had dropped her and fled fearing she would be heard. Suddenly a burst of maniacal laughter is heard from the auditorium doors. The boys all dash off the stage to find him except the sheriff who is too scared to move. The maniac, who had kidnapped the heroine, is finally captured but is never brought on stage. So the mvsterv is over. The play ends happily for everyone and the hero and heroine announce their engagement.SENIOR PLAYThe Junior Class presented Very Untruly Yours by Toro Taggart, December 2-3, 19ii8.

Bill Icllard is leading a double life—being a sedate young college professor by day and a vrriter of lurid true stories by night. He is rushing to finish the last episode of a love story for True Secrets before a five o'clock deadline when who should arrive from boston but his fiancee, Helen, and her mother, Mrs. Morroonby who is a wonderful talker. Finally, in desperation to escape he hits a policeman named O'Hara and goes to jail dreaming of the solitude he'll find there. But his dreams arc rudely chattered, for he arrives on the only visiting day of the v eek and a passing parade of pests begin. The interruption of Astra, his old maid, Anna Mae Gordon, a student, and others introduced to Bill by George Crananzoup, the jailer, provides many light moments. Things really be .an to be complicated when Mrs. Mormonby arrived to decorate the cell; Desn Drustor, his college dean, who believes he is writing a thesis and offers advice; Lew Kelly, and old college dean arrived to chew the fat , Helen to break their engagement; O'Hara; and finally a girl, mysteriously disguised. Everything turns cut all right when Lew Kelly brings drugged coffee for the Dean and Mrs. Mormonby. The girl, mysteriously disguised, turns out to be Rae, Lew's sister. She types for Bill and together they finish the script and fall in love at the same time. Bill barely meets the deadline when the Dean awakes and reveals that he is tic editor of the lovelorn magazine and receives the script as the clock strikes five.ASSEMBLIES Assemblies play a verv important part in our school activities. Each year it is the responsibility of each class to put on a forty-five minute program. In addition to class assemblies we have had chapel periods, outside speakers, and other forms of talent program. Senior Assembly Ihe senior assembly was planned by the senior social problems class. Since this year was election year the class staged a mock political convention in which speeches were given by leading candidates of both parties with William Klingler and Lowell Umphress speaking for the Democrats and John Eddy and Lloyd Keller for the Republicans. After the convention a school election was held in the library. Junior Assembly The junior assembly consisted of three parts; the first, a western scene; the second, a quiz led bv Lee Unsler; the third, a very nter-taining talk on poetry by Mrs. Maude Moore, Sophomore Assembly The sophomores put on a very entertaining plav entitled, What a Night. The scene was laid in a haunted house where a group of teenagers were having a party, and the leading parts were played by Joyce Smith and Wallace Rayl. Freshman Assembly On December 8, the freshmen presented a play called, Pampered Darling. It was a story of a mixed-up holidav with two pampered darlings, Bonnie Mansfield and Ronnie Parshall, competing against each other. Eighth Grade Assembly The eighth grade assembly had taro scenes. One showed the living room of a home where the family was listening to the radio; the other represented the broadcasting station to which they were listening.

Several have joined us along the way and now we U3 members sit before you to review the years of our school life. Our first experiences with teachers began with Hiss Reese and Hiss Wehe, who made many attempts to teach us the fundamentals of reading and counting; Miss Povonmirc and Hiss Whitworth decided that spelling would be our fate in the second grade, while Miss Kelly and Miss McBride in the third grade taught us everything a third grader should know. Miss Kearns and Miss Wagner made multiplication and division ever so easy for us in the fourth grade. This year several of our classmates had parts in the grade school operetta, The Forest Court. During the fourth year in school the north and south buildings were joined and our class came together for the first time in the present grade building. Miss McWilliams and Miss Wagner eagerly assisted us in furthering our education in the fifth grade. As we entered the sixth grade Mrs. Underwood and Mrs. Tallman explained our position as the oldest students and we were really made to feel grown-up. We were invited by the seventh graders to visit the high school for one day, but were very confused by the number of students, teachers, and bells. Our sixth grade promotion was the greatest day for us to remember. As we came into junior high school, Mrs. Hawk and Mr. Danford met us, willing to help us to begin our six-year stay in Ada High School. The electing of class officers and a Student Council representative, becoming members of orchestra and band, and attending junior high parties were new to us and our class began to anticipate many exciting things. Mrs. Tallman and Hr. Danford, as advisers, led us in the eighth grade. We all remember making up time for talking in home room, and because we liked to talk so well, most of us joined the newly organized eighth grade debate club. V hen at the close of our first eight years of education we competed in the state eighth grade examination, Patty Hotter ranked first in the class. The first year in high school found us entering many of the high school activities, such as freshman chorus, GAA, GIIA, FFA, and boys' sports. Dee Klingler served as president and Mrs, Anspach and Miss Buehler as sponsors of our class that year. We now attended the senior high parties and donees and were able to make our own choices of subjects. Several members of the class participated in the general scholarship examinations for the first time. John Weishampel was chosen to lead the class during the sophomore year and Mrs. Reichcnbach and Miss Buehler were our sponsors. We tookpart in the Interclass Contest for the first time, and, although we didn't win, we gave the other classes good competition. Sophomore boys joined Ki-Y that year, and in the spring the girls became Y-Teens. Our class assembly was a one-act play, Keeping Kitty's Dates, which gave us good experience for our junior and senior class plays. During the junior year, Patty Hotter served as president; Evonda McMillen, vice-president; and Janet Harrod, secretary-treasurer. Plans were started early for the production of the junior class play, Brides to Burn, which was a hilarious comedy directed by Hiss Edna Duehler. Our class entered the Interclass Contest again, and tied for second place. Several members of the class participated in the mixed choir, which received a superior rating in the state contest. In athletics both boys and girls made outstanding records. The climax of the year was the Junior-Senior Prom in honor of the class of 19U8. We all remember the fun and work we had in carrying out our Rainbow theme, with Mrs. Pearl Underwood directing the plans. Enthusiasm marked the entire efforts of the class of 19U9 as we entered the last year in Ada High School, Officers elected for this year were Jeanette Murray, president; Evonda McMillen, vice-president; Edith Henry, secretary; and William Klingler, treasurer. Miss Crawford was our sponsor. Senior Day was observed with Sara Jane Kreglow reigning as queen, and Janet Harrod and Audrey Hover, attendants. Seniors entered many activities, among which were scholarship tests, athletic contests, music programs, and literary events. A mock political rally depicting major party candidates of the 19U8 national election -was given by the senior social problems class, followed by a school-wide election. Success came to the seniors with victory in the Intcrclass Contest, and the U9'ers were guests in the 31ue Room at the Interclass banquet. Edith Henry was chosen Hay queen and Janet Harrod one of the attendants for the May Day program sponsored by the GAA, As the senior play, The High School Mystery was produced, coached by Miss Buehler, Patty Hotter was chosen valedictorian and for the first time in the history of Ada High School co-salutatorians, William Klingler and Stella LaRue, were named. Like the U9'ers of a century ago, we have reached our goal and now with our riches are leaving to use them to the best advantage. Our search for knowledge has given us many cherished experiences and we all regret that now they are only memories. With such success in the past, we leave Ada High School with high hopes for the future. By - Patty Hotter Robert MessickCUSS PROPHECY After a ten vear lapse of time we are eager to find to what extent the U9 'ers have reached their various goals and how successful they have been in their chosen fields of work.

By - Sara Jane Kreglow Evonda McMillenTEL1PUS FUGIT As the earth goes revolving through space And time parades in an unending race, We, the Senior Class, must prepare To accept life's mirth and despair. In these twelve full and precious years of school, Together we've studied, lived, and thought In close communion with those who helped us To apply to life what we've been taught. Those hours of golden laughter We've spent together in fun, Will echo throughout life's trials As we take our place in the sun. And so we say farewell To the part of our life which is gone. Though in far corners we may dwell Our lives must still go on. As we tread the path of our future With our heads held high in the air, We'll ne'er forget the memories Our thoughts will always bear.
