The next day Pamela and I left Ada and flew to Hollywood to question members of the class who lived in that area. We located TOM SMELSER on the set of his new TV detective show, TERRIBLE TOM. JEAN STOBER was doing the commercials for the show, and also on the set were JOYCE HAUENSTEIN, CBS's fascinating choreographer, CHARLOTTE AUSTIN, beauty counselor of the stars, and JUDY WAGNER, world's leading dress designer, who is responsible for the revival of the bustle. We called on Hollywood's "hostess with the mostest," JOY WICKENDEN, who invited us to hear the QUEENSTON TRIO, composed of those rages of the music world, JARILYN STOLL, SUE WYSS, and PAM SHAD LEY. Their appearance at the Hollywood Bowl was a phenomenal success.
From California we hopped to Hawaii where the largest missile station of the United States is located and interviewed DR. THOMAS G. SHANKS and DR. GARY McCOOL, who have had such spectacular success with "Project XZ," which is a missile which will destroy the missile which is supposed to destroy the original missile. At the University of Hawaii we talked to DR. DON NICHOLS, head of the mathematics department, his charming wife LONNIE, and their daughter who had just won the Miss Universe beauty contest. Dr. Don had just completed the amazing task of proving that, contrary to popular belief, all circles are NOT rousid. They told us that PAULA STOVE was head of the education department at the university, and that famous novelist DAWN DARLINGTON lived on a distant island with her drug magnate husband. None had left the islands for months so we cleared them.
Spending a lazy day on the beach at Waikiki we moved our investigation via newspapers to the members of the Class of 1960 in the sports' world. DENNIS ANSPACH, head football coach at Massillon High School whose teams showed a record of 50 straight victories; VICKIE BENNETT, world champion Olympic figure skater; JUDY YINGER, the nation's leading woman bowler; and BUD DOWNING, the champion yo-yoer of the world, were all checked.
From Hawaii we traveled to New York and Washington, D. C. In New York we were able to eliminate from our list of suspects the following: PATTY NELSON, a professional model for fashion magazines; CINDY WARREN and MARLENE CLAPPER, both secretaries of their husbands who are successful Wall Street brokers; and SHIRLEY ELWOOD, drummer for a popular jazz band. In the nation's capitol were BERNICE WEBB and LILEA PIFER, nurses for famous patients at Walter Reed Army Hospital; PEGGY SIZEMORE and RUTH ANN DEARTH, owners of a Charles-of-the-Ritz beauty bar; and JOAN CONLEY, head librarian at the Library of Congress. We traveled across the Potomac to the Pentagon and visited Secretary of the Navy ROBERT MOLONEY and his assistant Lt. Commander COLEEN GUDAKUNST. Also at the Pentagon was Rear Admiral DAVID FLEMING with his top secretary, BARBARA GILBERT.
Our time was passing quickly and we were still without clues.
Three people were still on our list, but we were unable to contact them as JON URICH was last reported serving as a missionary in the darkest part of Africa; JUANITA DEARTH was at her secretarial duties at the American Embassy in Moscow; and RICHARD COOK was somewhere on a second tour of the globe trying to solve the social problems of the world.
Having completed the check on all members of the Class of 1960, we returned to Ada with our report. After going through all the information we had recorded, we could positively not connect anyone with the death of our former teacher; however, we remembered that Mrs. Felt had the peculiar habit of opening the windows of her classroom on even the coldest days, thus assuring the alert attention of her students. A check with the doctor verified our suspicions. Mrs. Felt had died of pneumonia -- a draft from the open window had won.

4When you "round" another corner in the course of your life you rather reluctantly close the record book on those experiences just passed. But you are amply compensated by the anticipation, inspiration, and challenge of things to come; those vast opportunities in the immediate and the remote future. Your new street can be wider, the ascent steeper, and the way straighter if you WILL it so.
You, who leave high school by graduation or otherwise, must surely be aware of the great strides of progress in these "Soaring Sixties" and that the twenty-first century, now only forty years away, is rushing down upon you. Are you prepared to meet the complicities of life in the few decades allotted to you?
Some how, in spite of all that one hears or reads about alleged inadequacies of young people, this writer has a sincere and unshakeable faith that you will "come through" in your time, that you will have lived your lives in a most creditable manner, and that you will have made vast contributions to society and the world.
5WORK AND FUN FILL A MEMORABLE YEAR
"Seventy seniors begin their final year at Ada High." This comment held all our hopes for a successful year. And a successful year it was--from the election of our officers, President TOM DEARTH, Vice-President ARCHIE RODGERS, Secretary MARLENE CLAPPER, and Treasurer TOM SHANKS, to that final day when seventy received their diplomas.
Under the guidance of our advisors Mrs. Bozarth, Mr. Rex, and Mr. Ansley, we earned enough money to finance our senior trip to Wash-
ington, D. C. With this as a goal, many class projects were undertaken --magazine sales in October, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE in November, and our very successful carnival in April.
Seniors sparked the football team and the band, besides distinguishing themselves in many other activities.
The value of our school years at Ada High School was made evident when our class placed seven of the top ten in Hardin County in the Senior Scholarship test.

NORMAN REX B.S. in Ed.

81ARQENIC AND OLD LACE
SENIOR CLASS PLAY
Mortimer is the only sane member of the crazy Brewster family, and his problems are nearly overwhelming. He has to cope with the antics of his sweet elderly aunts, who have for charitable reasons, done away with twelve lonely gentlemen callers, and with his brother Teddy who believes himself to be Theodore Roosevelt. Teddy repeatedly charges San Juan Hill (the stairs) and is busy digging the Panama Canal in the basement--an ideal resting place for the twelve 'yellow fever' victims. The arrival of an insane convict brother and his plastic surgeon sidekick causes the plot to boil over. Four Brooklyn cops, a minister, the head of an insane asylum, and a roomer furnish further complications and laughter.

82TIME OUT FOR GINGER
April 8, 1960
Agnes and Howard Carol have a full time job as parents of three teen-age daughters--Joan, Jeannie, and Ginger, but when, as a result of a speech by Mr. Carol, Ginger decides to try out for the football team their problems are further complicated. At first it seems the only person sympathetic toward Ginger is the. maid Liz, but when the principal of the high school and then Howard's boss at the bank start making a fuss, everyone goes over to Ginger's side. However, after one game and a touchdown, Ginger decides that it is more fun to be a girl and gives up her football aspirations. Finally everything is restored to its proper order.

The Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Kaufman, has been active throughout the year. They presented a very clever Christmas assembly which began with the group sitting informally on risers singing old favorites, novelty songs, and Christmas carols. After an intermission they appeared in their robes and presented sacred music appropriate for the season.
Other appearances were made at the District Music Contest where they received a rating of "very good, " and at their annual spring concert in April.
