T. WARTHMAN Superintendent This book contains many memories of your high school days. As you turn the pages and memories of the past come to you, this one thought will occur again and again, "I have left undone many things that I ought to have done." The past is gone but Abraham Lincoln once said he would study and prepare himself and then some day his chance would come. To all of you who in any way helped to make this Hne annual a success, go my best wishes for work well done. Jfmynhm R. M. HARBECK Principal The continuation of the American form of government and way of life depends primarily upon two things-the desire to be free and an educated body of citizens. It is easy to sit back and let someone else make our decisions for us, but, in so doing we lose individual freedom. We must constantly strive to meet our personal responsibilities and we must learn the reasons and means for doing this. The American public schools have these things as part of their objectives.

Mr. Alfred Kahler Hardy Mason has inherited 3lS0,000 and the money goes to his head, not only his but also to the heads of his mother, Mrs. Mason, and bfahis sis- ter, Irene. Hardy is engaged to a girl from Belgium whose name is Sari. When she arrives in Galesburg, Connecticut, to meet Hardv's parents, Mrs. Mason, Irene, Helen Reeves-Alton, an Wold friend' of Hardv's who tries to break up Sari and Hardy Cfor only his moneyjg and a few other socialites of Galesburg, make it very miserable for Sari right from the start. They treat her as a nobody, trying to make themselves so much better. Sari decides that the money is a curse to Hardy and his family and that Helen and other Wso called' friends are using him because of his money, so she gives it all away to butlers, friends, and the ice man. Later on, people start complaining about bad checks. The family fhmk out Hard 's account is 31,000 overdrawn. They can't understand why. Now that they have no money, the elite of the city snub them, and they have hardly an friends. Everyone finds out Sari is responsible for this and they all hate her more than ever. Sari, seeing how important this money really is to Hardy, repays every cent. This is when everyone discovers she is a Countess. Hard refuses the money but--not long after, Mowatters, the first butler,,to whom Sari has given 530,000 to dig for oil, turns up and ex- plains how he has sold his share to The Standard Oil Company Hr?S2,000,000. Since it is Hardy's money that had been given to him he gives 21,000,000 to Hardy. Sari is determined to leave Hardy after this episode because she thinks he loves his money more than her. After a little explaining and persuasion, she stays--and everyone is happy again. zzioz' P! '- . ,EY 1 .

But now we will take you into the deep, dark past, many years ago, when we, as first graders, started toward the top. . On September 7, 19hl, the forty-three seniors sitting before you started on their long road of adventure through school. Six- teen of this group began their school life in Ada. Miss deese and Miss Wehe were the kind teachers who guided us through our first yea-I' l Proud but still unexperienced, we advanced to the second game. we felt grown up now as Miss Whitworth and Miss Povenmire tried to teach us the simple fundamentals of spelling, but we still had WJack, Jump Over the Candle Sticku in our minds. In the third grade, under the able supervision of Mrs. Lknhorn and Miss hhitworth, we tangled with the multiplication tables. In l9hh we entered the fourth grade with kiss wagner CNow mrs Hitesl and Miss Daily struggling to teach us the things a fourth grader should know. Miss Wagner and Miss McWilliams led us through our fifth year during which we put on the operetta, nThe Honey Piratesu, directed by Miss Fravel. At last we reached what we thought then to be our goal. We became sixth graders, the upper-classmen of the grade school, but soon we were to find out that we had just started. Mr. Zimmerman and Miss Barrett were our teachers at the beginning of the yean During the year Miss Barrett left us to become Mrs. Tupps and Mrs. Shoemaker became our teacher. we presented another operetta this year entitled UThe Old Crosspatch.u The end of the sixth grade was celebrated by a visit to the seventh grade in the high school and finally by our Sixth Grade Graduation. When we first entered A. H. S. the building actually shone with the brilliance of our happy faces, for we had been looki,ng forward to our first year in high school for a long time. During the first few days a part of the glamour wore off, armd we settled down to the serious tasks of learning how not to get lost trying to find the next class, getting acquainted with our teachers and each other, learning the mysteries of new lockers ad, incidentally, getting some studying done. Finally we got down to business and elected some class officers: Shirley Thompson, presi- dent, wayne Fleming, vice-president, Richard Smith, secretary- treasurerg and Gloria Nichols, student council. Our homeroom ad- visers were Miss williams and Mrs. Tallman. Slowly May approached and suddenly we were free again! We were not sorry to say uso longn to Ada High for a while but we were ready to return the next fall to start our eighth grademmrk. This year we elected Nancy Long to be our president. John Hays was vice-president. The other officers were Wayne Fleming, secretary, Antoinette Anastisi, treasurer, and Gloria 'Nichols, student council. Mr. Polite and hiss-Buehler were our sponsors. we faced the eighth grade state tests and discovered that theywmre. not as difficult as we had thought. As we entered the freshman year of high school we were able to feel that at last we were accomplishing something, even though the seniors still looked down on us, we were able to join F. H. A., F. F. A., and G. A. A. Some of the boys went out for basketball and football. Our officers this year were: Jerry Hipsher, presi- dent, wayne Fleming, vice-president, Jack Suhr, secretary, Ed baker, treasurerg and Dan Snyder, student council. Our home room advisers were Mr. mcPhearson and Mrs. Underwood. As September, 1950, drew around, we became sophomores. We were taking various courses and making our places in sports and organizations. We were able to join Y-Teens and Hi-Y that year. beveral of our class mates were in the choir. Valerie Evers was our president. Our other officers wereg wayne Fleming, vice- presidcntg bhirley Sheldon, secretary, Antoinette Anastasi, trees urerg and Ed Baker and Gloria Nichols, student council. Miss Hankish and Mr. dwallow were our advisers. when we entered our junior year we discovered that we had a lot of work out out for us. we presented our class play n0ur' Hearts Were Young and Gayu. To raise money for our prom we sold candy and sponsored a bake sale. The theme of our prom was Udlohan. we felt quite successful as we finished our junior year. Much of this success was due to our class officers! Wayne flaming, presi- dent, Ed Baker, vice-president, Jack Suhr, secretary, and Fred Hunser, treasurer. Ed Baker, wayne Fleming and Gloria Nichols were student council representatives. Mr. Obenour was our class sponsor. Senior! Senior! The word was music to our ears. But we soon became accustomed to it, and started to work again. Our dream was a trip to New York and Washington and we meant to do all we could to realize it. Again we sold candy, held a magazine sale and spon- sored a donkey ball game. Our play, held April 9 and 10, was UThe Adorable Spendthrift.n 'we climaxed our year with our trip to New York and Washington on April 23. The officers who led us through our last year of high school were: John Anspach, presidentg Wayne Fleming, vice-president, Fred Runser, secretaryg Jack Suhr, treasurerg and Shirley Dhcldon, Jack Suhr, Gloria Nichols and Tom Tallman, student council. Of course nothing could he quite as important to us as that one last glorious day when we will receive our diplomas. we will never forget the times we had here and the friends we made. but now, with high hopes, we take another step into the future and say farewell to our high school days. 7612, L ,Q U ,.'1.,, W, i l pf ...W-Q-... W A ' CLASS PROPHECY In the year 1963 the most popular book on the newstand, al- ready selling in the millions, is a multi- biographical edition of the members of the 1953 graduating class of Ada High School written by Ralph E. Obenour, now recognized in literature as one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century. This beauti- fully bound best seller is being published by Mabel Crawford and Company. It is not only fantastic and humorous, but also thril- ling, breath-taking, and stupendous. It shows the miraculous lives of h2 of the world's greatest leaders. As we skim through the book we will give you a glimpse into the life of each of these famous individuals. After attending both Ohio Northern and Ohio State Universi- ties Gunars Abele, the great architect, designed and was in charge of the construction of the new atomic subway under the Alantic Ocean. Pat Amstutz, who just recently directed the sduare dancing in the big arena at the World's Fair in Paris is now directing all square dancing at Mavsville. We find Pat LaRue as the head secretary to Roger Fleming, who is now in charge of the world's bigeest syndicate of movie theaters. John Anspach, one of the most famous names in the world, not only finished last season with the Indians as a 20 game win- ner but has become president of the Janitorial Unior for 'Chiro- practors in the United States. Dick Downer was just fired as chief clown of Ringling Bros. Circus for tearing down all the tents and letting the animals run wild. While this book was going to press, we received a flash from the Indianapolis Speedway that Bob Hooper had just double lapped George Wissinger with an amazing average speed of 220 miles an hour in his atomic racer. Wissinger has just ,recently taken over Bischoff's Highway Oil Company. Hooper recently opened a car manufacturing company whose slogan is Wlf you can't rod it-don't buy itn. Dorothy Houser has just finished a lecture tour of Hardin County, speaking and giving quotations from Milton's WParadise Lostn. Having memorized most of his works she has become famous as a renowned scholar. ' Jim Crates is now convalesing from over-work at the Ada Herald having broken the world's record for baling paper. Following the retirement of Waite Hoyt, the famous baseball commentator, Bob Hitchcock rose to such fame that he is now on a nationewide hook up. After owning and running Lennox Nanufacturing Company for a few years, U9igW Bill Gilbert has just bought out Westinghouse.

Yet of all the memories hidden there, Those of Ada High are best. That Freshman year when we were new, And our teachers' patience tried, How hard they worked to help us learn, How oft they failed and sighed. That Sophomore year in fifty-one When we were not quite so green,' when teachers smiled and thought, At last an improvement may be seen. That Junior year when we were sure We knew all there was to know, When the teachers shook their heads and said, They'l1 soon receive a blow. Now we come to our senior year. he finally realize, How very much there is to learn, Before we can be wise. -pm.
