Byerly Secretary - Anna Inniger Treasurer - Fannie Habegger Class Sponsor - Harvey Haggard C-eaJd J idtoti As freshmen, there were 30 students enrolled in Monroe and 16 enrolled in Kirkland. That was the year they got the idea of - ' consol- idating " into one school. When we came back to " Adams Central " as sophomores, we felt really proud because we were no longer green freshmen. One of the first things we did was to hold the election of officers. The following officers were elected: President, Dave Nussbaum; Vice-President, Doyle Arnold; Secy, and Treas., Millard Habegger. To give our class treasury a boost, we decided to sell pop at noons during the first semester. vVe enjoyed a class party which was held at the C.C.C. Camp at Bluffton. Now recognized as juniors, we came back to try our luck for another year. Roe Lehman was elected as President, Dave Nussbaum as Vice-President, Millard Habegger as Secretary, and Doyle Arnold as Treasurer. Mrs. Reed was our class sponsor. To raise money for our class treasury, we sold magazines, all- occasion cards and Christmas cards, and sponsored the Dixie Four. All the projects were very successful. During the year, we enjoyed two class parties and also spon- sored a school skating party at Ft. Wayne. In March, Miss Preston directed our class play, " Off the Track. " We re-entered school as " Big Seniors " and looked forward to achieve our goal. Thirty -five students were enrolled in this senior class. We chose the following class officers: Dave Nussbaum, Presi- dent; Mary Ellen Byerly, Vice-President; Anna Inniger, Secretary; Fannie Habegger, Treasurer. The class chose Harve Haggard as our class sponsor. To make money for our senior trip, we again sold magazines and sponsored the Dixie Four. These proved to be a big success. We also sold concessions at ballgames. On November 2 we presented the senior play, " Love Your Neighbor. " The senior class chose the red rose as its class flower. The class colors chosen were maroon and silver and the class motto chosen was " Backward never, forward ever. " We plan to leave on our senio r trip May 10. The baccalaureate service is to be held May 18 and Commencement on May 20. And now as we say " GOOD -BY " to our school days we realize we are saying " HELLO " to the world and going to see what we can achieve. Compliments of CENTRAL DAIRY, Grade A Dairy Products, 230 W. Market St., Phone 120 Bluffton, Indiana ( iadd lAJiU The other day as I was walking through the hall I saw a sheet of paper on the floor. I went over and picked it up and opening it I read: " As Seniors of the Adams Central High School, we are obligated to leave behind certain treasures that were willed to us. To the fortunate students and faculty we leave the following: To the Juniors, we will the opportunity to be such well behaved and well -liked Seniors as we have been. To th e Sophomores, we will two more wonderful nine month school years during which they can study long and hard. To the Freshmen, we will the privilege --when they are seniors--to initiate freshmen as we have done. To Mr. Roberts, we will a whole student body that will never cause him any trouble at any time and will never sit on top of desks. To Mrs. Reed, we will some girls that will know how to sew and cook. To Miss Beavers, we will a play cast that will always be on time and will learn their lines in a short length of time. To Miss Engle, we will a more co-operating and quieter study hall. To Mr. Collier, we will a secretary who will do all his typing for him. To Mr. Heiman, we will a new and modern laboratory. To Mr. Goble, we will a new chair for him to stand on so that he can lead the band better. To Mr. Stanley, we will a big, new and modern gymnasium. To Mr. Lightle, we will some new mouse traps in hopes that he won ' t have to use them. To Mr. Haggard, we will some salesmen who will not cause him to mutter to him- self at ballgames. To Mr. Bailey, we will a new and larger F.F.A. Club and some more pretty bright shirts. Lester Schwartz leaves his ability to take his girl to class play practice every night to Luther Hedington.

Time marches on and as we travel across the nation and the world, we find that people also march on! ! We find the graduated class of 1952 scattered all over the globe! In order to glimpse the activities of our illustrious Seniors, let ' s go on a trip. The year is 1970. As we drive through the city of Decatur, we stop to " chat " with Doctor Roe Lehman who has become the leading psychiatrist in Adams County. He surely has a swank office. As we come out of his office we run into Bob Mitchel who has just had his first novel printed. He remarks that it ' s the best thing since The Egg and I, and is already on the best seller list. He is making his home on his farm near Decatur for a few weeks; however his offices are in Chicago. We ask him to direct us to a good eating place and he advises us to dine at Bob ' s Hash House. After finishing our meal we are introduced to the head chef and we find that it is none other than our own Bob Shaw. Continuing our trip we pass through the large city of Rainsville, Indiana, which has a population of 400. Here we meet the ' ' World ' s Champion Knitter of 1970 " --Lester Schindler. Lester tells us that he is now employing his knitting skills to make articles for his own store here. Leaving Rainsville, we make our next stop at Indianapolis. Here we visit a radio show, Miss Pauline Schwartz ' s, " Getting Married and Staying That Way. " She tells us that her advice to all the lovelorn reaches millions of listeners daily. Leaving the studio, we drive to the outskirts of Indianapolis and we see signs advertising the " best " honey and honey bees. We inquired and found that it was no one but Earl Yoder who is doing a thriving business raising honeybees. Yep! They helped him win his bride too! We were quite tired after our stay in Indianapolis and found the " wide open spaces " of Texas much to our liking. You see, we are being entertained as guests on a two-thousand- acre ranch owned by Lester Schwartz and Sally Ross, now Lester ' s wife. They comment that ranch life is very healthful for their five children. Then in order to get a touch of sunny California, we journey lo Santa Cruz where we drop in at the neat beauty salon owned by Mary Ellen Schnepp, who is responsible for a new hairdo known as the " ringlet cut. " Her favorite pastime, of all things, is flying her privately owned sabre jet airplane. From Miss Schnepp ' s fashionable shop we make a phone call to Hollywood. Our call is answered by Actor John Liby, now playing the role of an Arab Chief in his latest movie, " The Great Sheik. " Driving up the coast we stop at the University of Southern California in Berkeley, where we visit with P rofessor David Nussbaum. He ' s the mathematics and science instructor here. But he still finds time for an occasional ride on his " bicycle built for two. " Cutting across from Berkeley on our way back to Chicago we retire for the night at a hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah. Here we meet salesman Don Walters who is really a success selling " get thin " tablets and blond, curly wigs for the men with shiny foreheads. After leaving Don we arrive in Chicago to be greeted by a new innovation of Bud Cook ' s -- the mural decorations on the first floor of the Merchandise Mart. The rumor that this original piece of art has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize is ascertained by Bud himself. 1 We had lunch with Bud at a Chicago restaurant and on our way out we see Clifford Hirschy with his fourth bride. Clif tells us that marriage is wonderful; the only trouble is that his wives don ' t think so. During the evening we go to see the latest performance of " South Pacific. " We are pleas- antly surprised to find that Phyllis Kohli is one of the top performers of the show. Before train time we go to the Chicago Institute of Science where our own " Einstien " , Millard Habegger, is a student. Millard has just won the Nobel prize in science for his new theory on energy. While waiting for our train, we read the latest news in the newspaper. What ' s this? ELIZA- BETH JOHNSTON IS NEW ATTRACTION FOR MILLER AND JONES CIRCUS NOW PLAYING IN PEORIA, ILLINOIS. We read on and find that Elizabeth is a tight wire walker and is really a success. Leaving Chicago we travel through the lake region and the Michigan fruit lands over to Detroit, , one of the largest cities in the nation. We are met at our train by Dale Hirschy, who takes us on a tour through Detroit in his own manufactured car, the Dalesmobile. The Dales - mobile is the best thing yet and already has many times outnumoered the sales of any other vehicle. From Detroit we hurry to Fort Wayne to do some needed shopping. As we speed past Cal- houn and Berry streets we hear a loud whistle. We stop and Policeman Raymond Zurcher writes our first traffic ticket since we started on our long trip. Since Cleveland, Ohio, is on our route to New York, we find it convenient to consult Gloria Crownover about the latest women ' s fashions. Gloria has been named one of the ten best dressed women in the United States during 1970. No wonder! ! They ' re her own creations! We were surprised, as we rolled into Grand Central Station, to be welcomed to New York City by the recently elected governor of New York State--Doyle Arnold. He wanted, in spite of everything else, to have us hear Crooner Henry Wagley, as he was cutting some new recordings for R.C.A. Victor. Henry is the latest rave among the girls, and why not? He really has a voice! After leaving Henry we see some of the great sights of New York, and then we go on to the John Robert Powers modeling studio where we find Jean Haines. Miss Haines is doing a tremendous job modeling bathing suits for Sack ' s 5th. Avenue Department Store. Our evening in New York is spent attending a United Nations meeting where we talk with Anna Inniger, who is the chairman of the Human Relations Department of the U.N. When asked why she chose this job she tells us that she couldn ' t make up her mind which suitor she should marry so she took the first opportunity to escape that came her way. We check at the Customs Offices for our tickets, passports, etc. for our trip abroad. Our ship, the Queen Mary, sails from New York Harbor the following morning. Since we know that Mary Lou Hannie is in London, we wire her to meet our ship, as we want to see her swim the English Channel. Mary Lou not only swims the Channel from London to Dover, but also establishes a new speed record. We are in London for two days and then we are off to Paris where we will see " the model home of 1970. " The interior decorator himself, James Riley, guides us on a tour through this model home. Jim is responsible for the many newly decorated homes all over the world. Knowing that David Sprunger is to appear in the Olymphics at Amsterdam, Holland, we make a special effort to go see him. It is quite a thrill to see David come out on top in these famous races. After our pleasant stay in Holland, we are off to Spain. In Barcelona, we learn that Fannie Habegger is a handmaid to Queen Isabella the 4th. She tells us that she got her start back in 1951 when she payed this role in their class play. In this same city of Barcelona we find Stanley Sprunger who is doing evangelistic work among the Spaniards. Since this is Fannie ' s night off we go to hear Mr. Sprunger speak. He certainly is a talented and inspiring speaker! We had decided to spend a few days in Spain but we received word from Mary Ellen Byerly inviting us for a tour of her domain in Hong Kong, China. Here in the spacious sur- roundings of the Orient, we are entertained by the first lady president of China. Miss Byerly has acquired the Oriental mode of life and loves it. Miss Byerly shows us a pamphlet which she received from Gainsville, Florida. This pamphlet is written by the teachers of Gainsville. Among the persons listed we find Herman Dick ' s name. Herman is now an intelligent but strict teacher in a little one room schoolhouse. We surely see that time and people have marched on! ! You would never have thought that a class could be so scattered, would you? But to make matters worse, when we arrive back in Decatur we find that Enos Schrock has gone off in a space ship to Mars. According to Drew Pearson ' s column he is going to marry a fair lady from the Moon! Also the inseparable Paulcleodale Trio, composed of Paul Sowards, Cleo Landis, and Dale Warthman, are spending the summer at the North Pole serenading the lady penquins! What will happen next ? ? ? ! uniors President - Walter Osterman Vice President - Gene Bluhm Secretary - Eileen Funk Treasurer - Don HoUoway Class Sponsor - Mrs. Reed Last September we juniors journeyed back to school to learn a little more from good old A. C. H. S. After greeting our friends we elected class of- ficers as follows: President, Walter Osterman; Vice-President, Gene Bluhm; Eileen Funk, Secre- tary; Don HoUoway, Treasurer. At the beginning of the year we presented for the enjoyment of all students a skating party at Bells Rink. We also sold magazines and Christmas cards, and presented a variety show, trying to make money for the class. During the year we also enjoyed two class parties.

Compliments of FERRIS BOWERS JEWELERS, Decatur and BERNE EQUITY EXCHANGE, Berne ENOS SCHROCK Forward In this third year at varsity, all fear the accuracy of that one hand- ed push shot. A level headed player, a little weak at footwork, can shoot with either hand, is always a threat on the offensive with his hot streaks. He has shown a great deal of con- sistency at the free throw line. HERMAN DICK Center Quiet, determined, playing his first year on the varsity, he is just a good reliable player. Always sparks the team by his aggressiveness on offensive and defensive. Gets his share of rebounds, has a good set shot, and is a worthy replacement at the center or forward position. DOYLE ARNOLD Guard Working in his second year as a varsity player, he is a cool, collective fellow; has an ef- fective set shot, handles the ball well, drives on the basket at the proper time, footwork is well balanced, shoots predomit- antly with his left hand although he can use the right, and is al- ways on the alert defensively. ROGER LONGENBERGER Forward Small but carries a mighty punch on offensive and defensive situations in his second year on the varsity. An accident kept him out of our lineup for several games but he came back with the determination to over- come any handicap. A serious, hard worker, he is a well balanced player, can guard, dribble, shoot, jump, and handle the ball very skillfully. He keeps the team fired up by his ag- ressiveness. JIM RILEY Small in stature, he is an ag- ressive ball of fire. This is his first year on the varsity squad. Possessor of the ability to fake, drive, and dribble, he keeps the defensive team on the alert. When the defensive can ' t tower over him, he has a very effective set shot. Compliments of Heller Coal, Feed Supply Co.; Decatur. BOB MITCHEL Center Still the master rebounder in his second year of varsity playing, has showed great improvement in his work around the keyhole. At the pivot post, he can either pa- ss off or shoot very offectively. He has become a threat at tipping under the basket and can hold his own in that area. A good founda- tion (size 13), he is hard to move, but possesses a world of endurance. ROE LEHMAN Forward Setting his third year on the varsity launch. Gets off once in a while and plays a credit- able game. Keeps team moral high with his razor sharp wit. Has a good effective left hand shot when he looks at the basket. A very dependable guard and re- bound man. Possesses the abi- lity to fake and drive onto the basket. KAY RATCLIFF Forward His playing lies first year on the varsity, he possesses a good left hand push shot, has the size and aptitude for devel- oping into a worthy player. He works hard, is sincere in his efforts, needs a little more experience and agressiveness. DAVE NUSSBAUM Guard This is his second year at varsity levels. He can qual- ify with the best in guarding ability, shoots good balanced set shots, potent defensive rebounder, and is well ground- ed in the fundamentals of basketball. DON DICK Guard In his first year at varsity basketball, he is showing much improvement. Big and rugged, plays a little rough, can hold his own on either offense or defense. Very aggressive player, has the ability to inter- cept passes, and a good driver on offense. He should develop into a good player by next year.

When the basketball season opened this year we had 7 players from last year ' s var sity squad. The following players made up the 7: Doyle Arnold, Enos Schrock, Dave Nussbaum, Bob Mitchel, Jim Riley, Roe Lehman, and Roger Longenberger. The Greyhounds had a fair season winning 10 and losing 13 games. The highlight of the year was the outstanding offense and defensive games played at the county tourney. The first game in which the Greyhounds played in the county tourney, was against the Commodores in which we won by one point, 48 to 47. Sat. afternoon we beat Monmouth 45 to 32. The greatest excitement came Saturday evening during the final game when the Central Greyhounds met with the Hartford Gorillas and the Greyhounds came within one point of tieing the score with two minutes of playing time left in the game. The Central fans went home sad but proud ! The greatest disappointment of the season came to the Central fans during the sectional tourney. Central had great hopes but they fell Saturday afternoon when the Greyhounds were on the losing end of a 73 to 52 score against the Pleasant Mills Spartans. The Greyhounds had won their first game easily by defeating the Jefferson Warriors 60 to 48. We think that all the members of the team did a fine job this year under the expert leadership of our coach Max Stanley, who is serving his first year at A.C.H.S. The remaining members of the varsity squad are: Roger Longenberger, .Tack Hendricks, Junior Nussbaum, and Donald Pick. Good-luck to these boys and to all the rest of the boys who will be playing on The Central team next year.

Jack Hendricks, Lester Egly, Roddy Beer, Eddie Nussbaum and Junior Nussbaum were regulars. Jack Hendricks --Jack will make himself known on the varsity as a center in the coming years. Eddie Nussbaum --Eddie is a fast all around man. He played the speedy position as guard most of the time. Bob Heare --Bot was a handy reserve at the first of the season but moved himself up to a starting regular. Lester Egly --Lester was our sensational forward who possessed the ability to pivot beautifully. Tom Hoffman --Tom will have many good games to look forward to; he being only a freshman. Junior Nussbaum --Junior has now been elevated to the varsity to obtain experience. He will see plenty of action in the coming year. Walter Osterman--Walter is one of our " lightning " guards. He started as a regular by the close of the season. Harold Arnold- -Harold was the man who played the both forward and guard well. He will see plenty of action next year . Roddy Beer --Roddy became handicapped with an ankle injury this season just as he was at the point of going places. He will see plenty of action in the coming three years. Eugene eber and Hubert Isch--They both did a splendid job of being our student managers. Max Stanley --Last but not least is our coach who successfully guided the boys to their excellent record this season.

The team also won the county Softball championship and was presented with two trophies. One trophy will be kept permanently by the school and the second trophy must be won by the same school three times before it becomes a permanent possession of the school. The highlight of the season was when Dave Nussbaum, our pitcher, threw a no -hitter at Jefferson and the rest of the team gave brilliant support. On September 28, the softball team played the Alumni in a close game won by the Alumni 15-10. Only three home runs were made during the season and two of these were made by Longenberger; the other one was made by Schrock.

The Pep Club played the school song on their Kazoos. They appeared faithfully at each ball game and backed the team all the way.
