T. WARTHMAN Superintendent To look through the pages of this book will bring memories of many hours of hard work but this will soon be forgotten because of joy of recalling the four years of high school, with sad memories in some cases and joyful memories in others. No book will probably contribute more to recall the most joyous period of life than "We". May success and happiness follow all whose names and faces appear in this book. R. M. HARBECK Principal We live in a world of change - a world of restless potentials. Today's new idea or invention quickly sinks in the whirlpool of those of tomorrow. The past remains only in the pages of our history books -the future already develops in the minds of our young people. Our dedication, here, is to those values, those truths which have long been a part of human heritage and shall long remain. There can be no detracting from nor mediation with the ideal of the worth of the individual. This ideal forms a basis for the objectives of the American school system and is the reason of its existence. So long as we maintain our schools, so long shall we be free. ' WW MB- B' MR.

These people were often called upon to do some writing for the paper: Sue Houser, Ruth May, Laura Heller, Marilyn wart man, Mary James, Sharon Fox, and Joyce Hawes. There is a lot of work connected with publishing a paper of school news. when time draws near for the paper to come out the editors and their assistants must work out what is to be on their page and than assign articles for each person to write. After these have been written, they must be typed and given to the editor in chief and the adviser for approval. Then all copy is taken to the Ada Herald office to he set in type for use in making the du y copy. This is the first copy made of the paper by the staff,by fitting their articles on their page, choosing proper titles and pasting them down. when this is done the Ada Herald then prints the papers which are given to the Circulation Manager. fwpwple GM VOICE OF ADA HIGH SCHOOL Volume XXIII. 1953 i Numbi Today scriptions to We,Wish bought all you kids OFFICERS EhH School stu: and a driving film titled "A 'minute and an the d, or to you , 1 H ' your papers drivers, th Ner we hope 9 5 Gold this Your This is for the benefit of the jr. high students and a reminder for those who already know.

L. Keeling The Senior Class presented the mystery-drama nDrums of Deathn in the high school auditorium on April 22 and 23. Four of Mr. Bailey's relatives were mysteriously brought to his man- sion on a deserted stretch of land in the Florida Everglades. Three of them, Mrs. Gillette, Eugenia Bowles,and Amelia Gillette, arrived together to find that Mr. Bailey had disappeared and that one of the servants was having a weird trance in which she saw someone dead and another woman on her way to the house in a cart. Mr. Harley, the manager of the property, ordered the women to return to town but Mrs. Gillette, the eldest and most bcssy, refused to leave until she knew of her brother's whereabouts. Later the other relative, Paula Bailey, arrived as Celeste had said she would, riding in a cart. The town's sheriff had been called to find Mr. Bailey but he got in the way more than he helped and nearly ended up dead. He claimed that the reason for his helplessness in the case was due to the loss of'his badge, and he hunted for it throughout the play. Mrs. Oakley, the housekeeper, was very frightened because she knew that the relatives had been brought there by Th mpson, a bitter enemy of Mr. Bailey's, to get the magic stone for him. No one but a blood rela- tive could t uch the stone and not be cursed. Jules, the faithful servant of 'Massa Hah'ly, was set on getting revenge on Thompson, the man who had killed his wife and babies in Haiti. He and Celeste plotted with Mrs. Oakley's help to get the stone off Mr. Bailey's body which Celeste had seen floating in the lagoon. Celeste hypnotized Paula and following Mrs. Oakley to the lagoon, took the stone from Ba1ley's body and placed it in the case. Dr. Cameron, a doctor from New York, said he had been called to ex- amine Mr. Bailey, but he was really Thompson disguised so that he could get into the house. He was recognized by Mr. Harley after he had taken the key from his pocket to get into the case to get the stone. Thompson was killed immediately by the poison put into the case to kill anyone trying to take the stone. It turned out that Mr. Harley was really a government agent sent there to protect the stone until it could be sent to the country from which it came, and Paula was engaged to marry him, unknown to the other relatives.

Norm LaRue, Bob Lamb, Rus! Pepe! CLASS SONG IF 1951+ Ch we love the Halls of Ada, that surrounded us each year, And we will not forget them tho we be far or near. To the hallowed Halls of Ada, all our voices bid farewell, And memories will linger like the chimes of a hell. One day a hush will fall, the footsteps of us all will echo down the hall and disappear. But as we sadly start, our Journeys far apart, a part of every heart will linger here------ In the sacred Hells of Ada, where we've lived and learned to know------ That memories will linger from thexlong long ago.

Written by Betty Cunningham Jo Tressel Larry Klingler SCHOOL DAY M MGRIES Looking back across the years, As seniors often do, We see the happy and the sed' And friends that helped us through. Each day at nine for twelve long years We all walked through the door, Where we received a higher knowledge, To show our desire and more. Arriving at last at our goal We feel a pang of regret, But memories of the happy times, We know we never will forget. Those many hours of laughter We've spent together in fun, will echo throughout o r lives As we take our place in the sun. Now we must live in the future And use our teachers' sound advice, Then live and use it wisely, To build us a better world. We realize now that our high school toil Will never be in vain, If we will use it wisely, To broaden culture's gain. And so we say farewell To this part of our life which is gone, Though each in a different corner may dwell, Our lives must still go on.
