Betty had made a date with Ralph, a boy in her history class whom she had secretly admired. She didn't think that her father would mind, but when he found out he told Betty that she would have to stay home that night because the whole family was staying home.Kathy was also told that she had to stay home. As a result,she invited her friend Patty, over to spend the night. Bud invited his friends over to play basketball in the basement, and Mrs. Anderson had her Garden Club over to have a meeting.
That afternoon, in the midst of the confusion,Mr. Brinkworth, who wanted to finish some unfinished business, came quite unexpectedly. It was then that Mr. Anderson found out that it was his son that was to have a date with Betty.
Having decided to go to the dance against her father's will, Betty was reported missing and the police were sent after her. Many complications resulted, but Mr. Anderson finally got everything straightened out.

The three-act comedy is centered around the Senior Dance, only eleven days away, and Jane and Sclly still have no dates.Their worries are only beginning, for Sally's house guest.Marcia, snares one man right after another with the old go-gettern tactics. That is, everyone except Elroy,who is constantly practicing the shotput.but who isn't as dumb as he seems.Then the home front girls get reinforcements, for Cindy arrives—horn, bow, bag, and self. Cindy is a movie fan and ready to solve any problem on the basis of how Ginger Rogers landed Fred Astaire. By the time George and Marcia get back from the show, Jane, rigged out in her mother's loveliest negligee, powdered dead white,and apparently close to death is stretched out artistically on the sofa. George is scared-till Marcia suggests that Jane has mumps. Then Elroy puts the shot into the prize carnation bed,and what started as a mild worry about who dates whom to the Senior Dance, becomes a war of dads and carnations, shot-puts, mumps, and movies.

Just twelve short years ago our class started down a new pathway. This pathway was education, which brought fun, knowledge, and of course hard work along with It. We had one goal In mind and that was to graduate from high school.
In September, 1943, 44 members of the present class entered the North Building to begin their school career. Miss Reese and Miss Rosser began to teach us the fundamentals of reading, 'riling, and 'rlthmetlc. We received little cards known to us as grade cards which told how we were doing. Some of us were proud and some of us were not but we all
were happy about the last one as It showed us we had been promoted to the 2nd grade.
September, 1944—'We were back in the North Building as 2nd graders. This year we had Miss Whitworth and Miss Breese to help us along. We added spelling to our list of studies and also learned to write instead of print.
September, 1945—Our 3rd grade year proved to be one of a lot of memories. Miss Marian Crawford and Mrs. Mayhorn were our patient teachers,who tried to teach us multipli-
cation and division. Our class helped put on an operetta called Honey Pirates so naturally we began to think we were quite important.
September, 1946—As 4th graders we found ourselves assigned to Mrs. Young and Mrs. Runser. This year began to be a little more difficult as we had more studies of which geography was one. As one of our projects, each section presented a play.One was Han-sel and Gretel , and the other the Golden Goose .
September, 1947-—Mrs. Hites and Miss McWilliams had us to worry about as 5th graders. Once again an operetta, The Forest Court , was presented in which a few of our class mates were able to participate. This year we were permitted to play games in the gym during the noon hour. At last spring arrived and we found we had been promoted to the 6th grade.
September, 1948---At last we were the oldest in the grade school so we felt we
were pretty grown up. Miss Zuspan and Mr. Zimmerman were our teachers this year and it was the first time that we ever had changed classes. As one of our duties, several of the boys in our class were able to serve on the Safety Patrol . On May 25th,1949 Commencement exercises were held for a 64 member class receiving diplomas saying we had com-mpleted our grade school career and were now ready to begin our high school life.
September, 1949—We entered the High School as 7th graders. Thinking we were very big, but looked upon as small, we struggled through the year. With Mrs. Remsburg and Mr. Sprunger as our home room advisers, we elected the following class officers: President, Helen Malone; Vice President, Beverly Orders; and Secretary-Treasurer, Ernie Boutwell.
It was this year that we presented our first assembly. It was a radio skit entitled , Macsprang Tea .
September, 1950—Eighth grade. Mr. Sanderson and Mr. Sprunger led us in our final year of Junior High. We selected the following as our class officers that year: Pres-
ident, Ernie Boutwell; Vice-President, Helen Malone; and Secretary-Treasurer, Jeaneen Wlrries. We were a lot more active this year, taking part in chorus, playing in the
gym at noons and having the privilege of taking the 8th grade tests.
September, 1951—Ninth grade. At last we were considered officially part of the Senior High. This year we were allowed to Join various clubs and also to be included in the senior high parties and dances. Mrs. Tpllman and Mrs. Underwood were our homeroom advisers. Our class officers were: President, Carol Kreglow; Vice President, Val-
era lams ; Secretary, Sue Houser; and Treasurer, Norma Burman. Margaret Dudgeon from Cory Rawson came into our class this year.
September, 1952—We stepped up one more step into the tenth grade. This year was a big year to most of us as we were now able to participate in the Interclass Contest. Our contestants were: Oration, Linda Coburn; Essay, Carol Kreglow; Reading, Sally Smith;
and Short Story, Linda Baker. Although we didn't win, we surely gave them competition. The following three members were added to our class: Henry Schmitz from Germany, Barba-
ra Lawson from West Virginia, and James Ramey from Roundhead. We were able to Join two more clubs, those being Hi-Y and Y-Teens, Our class officers were: President, Jerry Mar-
shall; Vice President, Morgan Garver; Secretary; Buddy Routson; and Treasurer,Joyce Ans-psch. Our advisers were Mrs. Long and Miss Lealrd.
September, 1953—Eleventh Grade. As Juniors in high school, we now had to face many problems and much hard work for it was this year that we put on the prom for the seniors. We sold candy and memory books, had bakesales , saved tax stamps, had skating parties,and sponsored a Chill Supper. At last on May 15th we had the prom with the theme Cinderella's Ball . Also we presented our class play which was entitled, Hillbilly Weddin' , under the direction of Bill Keeling.Something new was added this year and that was that every Junior was now sporting a shiny, new class ring. Our class officers were: President, Joyce Anspach; Vice President, Ernie Boutwell; Secretary, Nancy Mansfleld;and Treasurer, Barbara Lawson, Our class sponsors were Mr. Reese and Mrs. Wright. We had some fine interclass contestants this year; Oration; James Ramey; Essay, Carol Kreglow; Readli , Ronnie Jump; and Short Story, Linda Baker. We didn't win Interclass,but it was by the very thinnest of margins. Tom Fairburn from Lima Shawnee Joined our class and Paul and Joe Allen rejoined it after going to school in Washington for a year.
September, 1954—And we attended Ada High School for the last year, as at last we
had reached part of our goal,--------------SENIORS. ,Thls year we selected Sally Smith as
president; Tom Fairburn, vice president; Joyce Anspach, secretary; and Leah Hetrick as treasurer. We all worked very hard selling magazine subscriptions, holding bakesales, and cookie sales, sponsoring suppers and saving tax stamps. The goal of all this was our trip to New York in May. Elisabeth von Buchwaldt, a German exchange student,Jolned our class this year. Margaret Schwarck from Van Wert also started out with us in our year. Our class play this year was entitled, STRICTLY FORMAL . Our class
63advisers were Miss Crawford and Mrs. Ritchey. April 15th was a big day of suspense for it was the Interclass Contest. Our contestants—Henry Schmitz giving the oration, Carol Kreglow the essay, Nancy Mansfield, the short story, and Ronnie Jump the reading-all did a fine Job. On May 11, members of our class left for New York, an experience we shall never forget.
We are now 8t the last page of a wonderful book of memories. We bid farewell to a wonderful school and teachers.

66CLASS SONG OF ’55
We will remember dear old Ada Hi School And all the memories that we have shared,
One day a hush will fall, you’ll hear our footsteps echo down the hall, and fade away and disappear. Through all the years we’ve worked and played together, We’ve learned to face our future with a smile,
Though we are leaving this, our Alma Mater,
We will remember Ada Hi School all the while.
(To the tune of Londonderry Air )
Written by: Joyce Hawes
Memories are ours to tell of 12 short years together,
Not all work, but fun as well These things we’ll e’er remember.
Times were when our pace did falter And our goal seemed far away,
We wondered then if ever we Would reach this graduation day.
Our achievements have been many In all we’ve striven to do,
Our smiles have been plenty,
But our frowns—very few.
In sports we held our own,
In music we left our name,
We know we’ll ne’er be forgotten In Ada’s Hall of Fame .
Now this is over, for soon we’ll depart And in all endeavors,we 11 nobly strive, But still leave a warm place in our hearts For Ada High and our class of ’55.
