Soph. — The only Sophomore on the main Varsity and will be a good man to build the team around VARSITY TEAM The Greyhounds began the season under a new coach, Howard Brandyberry, who had greal hopes of making a ball club of these boys as he had at previous schools. Of the boys who went out for basketball only Charles Hoff- man had experience on last year ' s varsity. The coach de- pended on him a great deal. Charles was the winner of the free throw trophy given by the coach. The team fought hard but had bad luck, winning only four of the scheduled eighteen games. Bob Mitchell, a tall junior, was center on the varsity and will be a credit to the team next year. He was the winner of the rebound trophy also given by the coa h. Another senior on the sguad who had some previou: ex- perience was Gerald Nussbaum, who was also a very good rebounder. Duke Hendricks was a dependable reserve although his chances of playing were limited. The members of the team that will be back next year are Doyle Arnold, Enos Schrock, Roe Lehman, Roger Longen- berger and David Nussbaum. Here ' s hoping next year ' s Greyhounds have a glorious and successful season. Page Eleven Second Team Ton Row (left to right); Lester Schwartz, Student Manager; Lyle Gerber, Don Hol- loway.

The Future Farmers of America Adams Central Chapter The Adams Central Future Farmers Chapter has twenty-three members who are students of vocation- al agriculture. These boys have formed this organ- ization to help themselves become better farmers. They are planning to carry out several agriculturs projects. Along with their agriculture projects, they have planned recreational and social programs. In all their efforts the agricultural programs of the community have tried to fit their plans into this larger program. The members truly desire to be the Future Farmers of America. The officers of the F.F.A. are: President, Ray- mo " d Worden; Vice-President, George Geyer; Secret- cry, Leroy Kolter; Treasurer, Walter Osterman. Their leader is IVr. Thacker. The club hold: its meetings twice a month. In order to increase the club treasury, the boys sold refreshments at the Farmers Institute.

The Home Economics Club jusi originated this year but seems to be progressing fine. Mrs. Reed is the leader and deserves much credit. She is doing fine in directing the club and also in her first year of teaching. At the present there are forty mem- bers in the club. The club held its first regular meeting of the year on a Tuesday noon. Officers were elected as fol- lows: President, Edith Steury; Vice-President, Shir- ley Steury; Secretary, Carolyn Egly; Treasurer, Mary Jane Steury; Program Chairman, Mary Jane Troxel; News Reporter, Irene Schwartz; Scra pbook Organizers, Pat Beitler and Mary Baumgarlner. The officers named the club Rekamemoh, homemaker backwards, and chose their colors to be red and white. They also decided to have their meetings the first Monday in every month. Their first party was a tea held for the mothers of all the members. Besides their regular meetings they have had a Halloween party, a Christmas party, a banquet for the basketball players, a Val- entine party, a hay ride and weiner roast, a style show and a pot luck supper for their parents. We wish the club great success and progress in the future years.

Page Twenty-One As I was walking through the hall the other day, I was detained by a group of teen- agers who were blocking the aisle and they all seemed to be grouped about one girl. Sud- denly, I heard one say, " Hey, Don, look at this one. He sure does look natural behind bars. " I turned around and looked but I didn ' t see anything. Then someone else said, " Are they holding their tails? Whoops, sorry! It ' s their noses. " I couldn ' t imagine what in the world goes around holding its nose. " That female is really blowing her trunk, I mean horn, isn ' t she, Mary Jane, " I heard someone say. Well, by this time I was so bewildered I didn ' t know what to do. Monkeys, trunks, noses, and horns seemed io be running everywhere and I couldn ' t see a thing. Finally, I went up io one girl and asked, " Pardon me but where is the circus? " " Circus " she whooped. " It ' s no circus, we ' re just looking at a Cen-trail. " CEN-TRAILS STAFF Editor-in-chief Beverly Lobsiger Asst.

(1 s m fl ' V I _J K m JL UH HISTORY Siarting our freshman year back in 1947 there were 46 of us in Monroe High School, 14 in Kirk- land High School and 3 at Pleasant Mills High School. Because of the wonderful idea of consolidation of Monroe, Washington, and Kirkland townships into " Adams Central " we started our junior year to- gether for the first time, with 38 to respond to the roll call. We elected the following as our class officers: president, Rex Erhsam; vice-president, Duke Hend- ricks; secretary, Mary Jane Troxel; and treasurer, Diana Crist. Our class sponsors were Miss Schertz and Mr. Lightle. We enjoyed a skating party on October 19 at Fort Wayne, a party at the C. C. C. camp at Bluffton, and most of all the play " Brainstorm " which we produced. At the end of the First semester one of our faith- ful members, Beaulah Christener, thought that mak- ing a home was more important than education. Bob Grim also left us. Once again we entered A. C. H. S. with our goal in sight. At last we were seniors. Our first class meeting was called to order by the principal, Mr. Andrews. Officers were then elected: president, Carolyn Egly; vice-president, Don Haines; secret- ary, Mary Jane Steury; and treasurer, Diana Crist. Mr. Haggard was chosen as sponsor. Again we lost four of our faithful class members. Helen Brandyberry and Myona Hicks thought they had enough education; they wanted to explore into married life. Rex Ehrsam joined the Navy and Nolan Ginter joined the Air Forces, each to fight for his country. To make money for our senior trip we had bake sales, scrap drives, concessions at ball games and a big Amateur contest. On October 23 and 24 we gave our senior play, " Don ' t Take My Penny " . On October 30 we tried to smile our best for our senior pictures, but on December 21 we gave everyone a big shock, for we received our pictures. As our class flower we chose the red carnation, and our colors are green and white. We the Seniors of " 51 " are looking forward to April 21 when we will leave for Washington, D.C., and New York for our senior trip; and we anti- cipate May 3, our last step together, Commence- ment. This is the History of the Class of 1951. We ' ve had lots of fun and hate to say farewell, but with our goal sighted and diplomas in hand we say, " Good luck, seniors of tomorrow and not goodbye, just so long " . Pag? Thirty-Four CLASS WILL We, the graduating class of 1951, being of perfect physical health (we hope) and of unusual intelligence do hereby publish our last will and testament and hope that everyone will survive their year of great loneliness without us at Adams Ceniral. We are confident that each heir will make good use of our many talents and possessions. To the faculty, we will that in the future years they will have a quieter, more dignified, group of seniors than they were cursed with this year.

To the juniors, we will our very dignified ways and the ab ' lily to be cocky as seniors most generally are.

To the freshmen, we will that when you are seniors you may have the privilege of initiating the freshmen and get by with it as we did.

Page Thirty-Five PROPHECY Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is station WMK bring- ing you the yearly program of " Our Seniors of Yesterdays " . Tonight our reporter will tell you what this station has learned about the members of the 1951 graduating class. Hello, everyone! I know you are anxious ol hear about your old friends so I won ' t keep you waiting. You remem- ber how bashful Norma Bradford used to be. Well, you will be surprised to learn that she is now touring the country giving lectures on " How to Hold A Man! ' Norma ' s good friend, Norma Jean Funk, was louring with her but she decided that her life ' s ambition was to be a hou-ewife. So now she is " smaching " two little darlings instead of " peck- ing " keys on a typewriter. Last week one day I stopped at several homes along the way to inquire about the new sheriff of Adams County, Pauline Rupert, and I found that she is feared by everyone. You may be interested in her latest arrest. This is the story that I heard: It seems that Don Haines is a bubble oum salesman traveling to all the main cities giving free demonstrations on " HOW TO CHEW GUM WITHOUT GETTING IT IN YOUR MUSTACHE " . While he was demonstrating, Pauline came up with a gun in her hand and asked to see h ' s license. Don got so scared, for Pauline was really wav- ing the gun around, that he swallowed his gum and couldn ' t tell where his license was so Pauline locked him in the county jail. She later released him though. By the way, have any of you seen the Ringling b.;s. Circus, yet? If you haven ' t you must, for Raymr n H Wordon is really wonderful. How he ever learned to swing on a little trapeze is beyond me! George Geyer is there, too. He catches Raymond when he falls, for a girl that is. Do you remember what good friends Mary Jane Troxel and Audrey Andrews were? This friendship still continues for they are now partners and are running the Bluffton Date Bureau. " Business is fine, " is ths report that the two girls give. 1 know that none of you have forgotten how Bernita Ehlerding always read True Confessions in bookkeeping class. You will be glad to hear she is now editor of the magazine. Her best author is Diana Crist. Diana ' s stories almost break your heart. The famous Olympic Track Star, Speed Demon, is none other than our own Wendell Sowards. Wendell has broken all former records. He gives all the credit of his success to his coach, Andy Schrock. Marie Habegger really gave everyone a shock. She is the United State ' s best woman wrestler, and you can now see her on T.V. every Wednesday night. I was pleasantly surprised the other day when I opened my door, for there stood the former Carolyn Egly with her twin boys, Jody and Mody. Carolyn now lives in a fash- ionable fifteen room home in Berne. I searched everywhere for Mary Jane Steury, but I forgot to look one place and that was up in the sky. That is where Mary Jane was, too, for she decided Paul might get lone- some way up there flying a plane. So she joined the Air Force, loo, and now is Paul ' s stewardess. Charlie Hoffman decided that the restaurant business is pretty good so he bought the former, " Chat Chew " . He now calls his establishment the " Chew It If You Can " . In- cidentally, Leroy Koller is his head cook. Loren Moser, after his graduation, started giving lap danc- ing lessons. Loren is giving Rockfeller some worrying for the money is really rolling in. The class of 1951 can really be proud for some of their members have really become famous! Frank Sinartra is now forgotten; the latest rave of Ihe bobby roxers is none other than Gerald Nussbaum. Everyone is talking about Mary Baumgarlners ' wedding which will take place in a few weeks. The famous John Powers Model, Lavonne Strahm, will be the maid of honor. Patsy Teeple, the concert violinist, is going to play her violin at the wedding. Carl Yoder decided since he was a football hero in the Junior Play he could also be one in college. He is now Michigan State ' s most valuable player. Everyone is happy for Marilyn Fox! Marilyn ' s heart was always in Berne and she now lives there and is the sports editor of the Berne Witness. 1 know everyone will remember how Edith Steury worried abou! her hair. After she graduated Edith decided she would help all women who had the same trouble so Edith has become a famous hair stylist. Edith can really cut hair! In fact, her hair styling has greatly increased Delores Graber ' s Hat Solon business. When Edith gets done cutting, the customers rush to Delores. They have to have some- thing on their heads you know. When I was in Monroe recently I asked a group of little brats (oops, I mean boys) standing on a street corner where I could find Duke Hendricks. They pointed to a building at the end of the street with a sign " Scout Headquarters " painted on the door. Duke is now the head Scout leader. Incidentally he has several little scouts running around at home. June Caudle is around in this world somewhere, but so far I have been unable to locate her. The latest report is that she is in Hawaii. I bet June looks nice in a grass skirt. If anyone has heard anything strange don ' t call the police, for it wasn ' t a flying saucer; it was just Irene Schwartz leaching her thirteen children how to yodel and sing " hill billy " music. Attention all Shorthand Students Shorthand is a subject really worth your while. At least it was for Virginia Taylor. Virginia got herself an office job, sat on the bosses knee, and wrote shorthand as if her life was at stake. Yep, she married him, too! Another promising young character is Miss Donna Bucher who is now working as a private secretary. Well, we have talked about all the 1951 seniors but one and that is Beverly Lobsiger. Beverly has really made a name for herself. She toured all over the United Stales giv- ing piano concerts before going abroad. While Beverly was playing for the King and Queen of England, a Duke of Ireland heard her. He wouldn ' t lake " no " for an answer, so now the Duke and Duchess of Ireland are spending their honeymoon in MONROE. We sincerely hope you have enjoyed this broadcast. Tune in again next year for some more information on your old friends. Alas, and Alack I ' m at the end of my lack But if you liked this — Next year I ' ll be back.

Our director of class activities was chosen to be Mrs. Read To boost the amount of money in our class treasury we and the seniors sold maga- zines and we sold the most. In Jan. we sponsored the Dixie Four to raise more money. This proved to be a big success. In March we preented the play, " Off The Track " under the direction of Miss Preston.
