We started out with forty-five enrolled. One of the first things we did was to elect officers: President, Don Holloway, Vice President, Marilyn Durrg Secretary, Mary Michaels, and Treasurer, Pat Barger. Mr. Collier was our class sponsor. We enjoyed two class parties, one at the gym and one at the Reinker School. Once again we entered A. C. H. S. as Sophomores. At our first class meeting, we elected Roger Longenber- get as President, Marilyn Durr as Vice President, Shir- ley Steury as Secretary and Virginia Mitchel as Treas- urer. We had a quiet year, although we had a hay ride and a party on October 20. Howard Brandyberry was the class sponsor. As juniors, we came back feeling very energetic. At the beginning of the year we presented for the en- joyment of all students a skating party at Bells Rink. We also sold magazines and Christmas cards, trying to make money for the class. Our officers for this year were: President, Walter Ostermang Vice President, Gene Bluhm, Secretary, Eileen Funk, Treasurer, Don Hollo- way. Mrs. Reed was our class sponsor. We are finally seniors and the class officers are as follows: President, Don Holloway, Vice President, Kay Ratcliffg Secretary, Walter Ostermang Treasurer, Gene Bluhm. Our class sponsors were Mr. Haggard and Mr. Hedges. To make money for our senior trip we had bake sales, scrap drives, concessions at ball games. On October 28 we gave our senior play, "Finders Creepers," which was a very good success. October 24 and 25 we smiled our best for our senior pictures, but on December 16 we were all shocked at the results. As our class flower we chose the red carnation, and our colors are scarlet and white. Our class motto was chosen as "We build the ladder by which we rise." We, the seniors of "53" are looking forward to May 9, when we leave on our trip to Washington, D. C., and New York. The baccalaureate service is to be held May 17 and Commencement on May 19. Now that we are coming to the end of our school life, we say "so long" and "Good luck to the seniors of tomorrow." Compliments of R. S. M. STUDIO and CENTRAL DAIRY Bluffton W -A ,.

The year is 1964 and here we are at Monroe, Indiana. Mon- roe now has a population of 7,000 and the mayor of our fair city is none other than the honorable jim Brodbeck, who is doing a fine job of keeping order. Why only last night he arrested Freddie Ehlerding for driving twenty-two miles an hour in a twenty mile speed zone. WARNING-BE CARE- FUL WHILE DRIVING THROUGH MONROE! Freddie now has his own garage and designs his own cars. His motto is . . . "If you don't like our design . . . design your own." It is election time once more and as I glance at my ballot whose name do I see but Don I-Iolloway's! Don is running for president on the Democratic ticket. He must have gotten the ambition in "53" when he was president of the senior class. And look who is his opponent on the Republican ticket. lt is Marvin Taylor, Don's former classmate. If he is elected, he says his cabinet will be composed of women only because he thinks women have been neglected for generations. As we leave the town hall we see Mr, and Mrs. Gene Bluhm who now own a 500 acre farm near Monroe. Mrs. Bluhm, who was the former Elaine Freels, is now managing a ten-room home and caring for their four children. We stopped to ask them about Lyle Gerber, who has just had a very serious operation performed by Dr. Hubert Isch. Hubert was assisted by Miss Pat Barger. now a graduate nurse. Pat and Hubert got along so well in high school that they decided to combine their talents, and now they are one of America's greatest surgical teams. They tell us that Lyle is doing fine and will soon be back at his job as a shoe designer. They also tell us that Virginia Mitchel and Eddie Nuss- baum, who were recently married, are building a new ranch style home in Florida. It is being built by the famous con- struction company owned by their former classmates-Luther Hedington and Leroy Chamness. If you wish to have your house designed by these great architects, you can reach them at the Empire State Building in New York City. As we leave the Bluhm's and continue down the street we meet Wendell Beer, who is home on leave. He tells us that he has been with the Marines for eight years and is now a 3-Star General. Wendell says that while he was on an inspec- tion tour of his troops in Japan, they were entertained by Bill Rowdon and Ernest Liechty, two of the top actors of Holly- wood. It so happened that one of Hollywood's Talent Scouts saw their senior class play and offered them a contract. Further down the street we see Arlene Habegger, the math teacher at Adams Central. During the summer she assists Walt Osterman, a famous scientist who recently discovered a new perfume the girls are all raving about. He is now trying to find a new way to kiss without spreading germs. We finally reach our car and what's this we hear on the radio? That was a joke? . . . It's comedian Don Dick who re- cently replaced Arthur Godfrey. After Arthur heard Don's pro- gram he decied he might as well retire while he still could. Oh, look out! That girl . . . we almost hit her! Why it's Eileen Funk and she's dressed all in black. When we stop to see if she is all right she tells us that four days ago her third husband passed away so she is very sad. But she says that her good friend The Reverend Willis Nussbaum was a great com- fort to her because he officiated at the funeral and made all the arrangements with Earl johnson, "the friendly undertaker." I hear Earl is building up quite a business for himself. We express our deepest sympathy to Eileen and continue on our journey home. Well, we finally reach home. Boy, what a day! Who would have thought so many things could happen in less than twelve hours! Now for some good music on the radio and we'll be ready to settle down with the evening paper. But wait . . . what's this?! It says here that the coach of Notre Dame, after twelve losses and no victories, has just resigned. And guess who it was? Yes, it was Eugene Weber, another classmate of "53." He states that he might have been able to accept the losses and the misfortune of losing a player with a broken leg. but when Roger Longenberger, his star player, decided to quit the team and marry Marilyn Durr, the famous model, well-that was just too much for him to take, so he decided to resign. Marilyn, who became a model soon after graduation, is plan- ning to leave for a tour through Europe in a few days so she and Rog decided that this would be a grand place to spend their honeymoon. Boy, wouldn't it though! ' We also read that Mary Michaels, who recently won the Miss America contest, has just completed her tour through South America and will give a lecture at the Community Build- ing in Monroe tomorrow night on "How to Get and Get Rid of Boys." That we'll have to hear! Listen!! Flash suddenly bursts forth from the radio . . . "We interrupt this program to bring you a special bulletin from England. Coleen Hirschy, America's swimming star, has just completed her swim of the English Channel in the record- breaking time of three hours, two minutes, and four seconds. What next?!!l. Well I guess that just about takes care of the class of "1953." Oh, wait, we almost forget two of the most important guys. The other day when we were in town I saw a notice posted on the town hall. It said that in a few weeks the city of Monroe will be entertained by the great Ehrman Circus owned by Kenny Ehrman. One of the main attractions will be Kay Ratcliff and his six ferocious lions which he captured himself in the Australian jungle. They tell me Kenny has quite a show and that it is rapidly putting Ringling Brothers out of business. HMM-M-M! I'm sure we'll all enjoy that! Well, this has been quite a day, hasn't it? I hope you have enjoyed visiting the class of "53" as much as we have. Now it is time to say "So long until next year when it will then be the class of "54."

One of the new clubs organized this year to enrich the extra curricular activi- ties at Adams Central was the art club. Fundamental drawing of landscapes, cone struction, and still life were phases of art studied in the past year. It is the hope of the members that the art club will continue next year, and that more of the student body will become interested in this worthwhile project.

The play was a mystery comedy by Donald Payton. Bill Rowden and Ernest Liechty, carrying the leads and portraying thirteen year old boys, did excellent work, according to Miss Beavers, the director. They were well supported by Arlene I-labegger and Mari- lyn Durr, as well as Coleen Hirschy, who was delightful as a detective story fan. Fun and sprithmas was added by Walter Osterman and Pat Barger, who played the older gen- eration. The stabilizers of the play were partialized by the middle aged Don Holloway and Virginia Mitchel, rustic humor was added by Freddy Ehlerding and Eileen Funk. Mystery and surprise were added by Mary Michaels, Lyle Gerber, Gene Bluhm and Elaine Freels. Earl johnson had a minor part, but did it well.

S amine F Ralph Hartsook, likely young school teacher, is welcomed to the unruly Flat Creek District school by the prophecy he won't last a week. Turning two practical jokes aimed at him upon the mischievious students themselves, the young schoolmaster wins the respect of his pupils. The community remains doubtful of a schoolmaster who doesn't lick his scholars, however, especially when he lost a spelling contest to Hannah Thomson, Mrs. Means' bound girl. Urged on by Dr. Small, an early companion of Ralph's, local prejudice fastens the suspicion of robbery upon him. An unexpected testimony at Ralph's trial releases him and proves Dr. Small to be the thief, leaving him free to marry Hannah.

This is the first attempt of student government of this kind made in this school. The purpose of the student council is to act as an intermediate between the student body and faculty. Some of the activities of the student council were: To operate the store at the lunch hour. The profits were used to pay for the rental of films. These films were selected by the student council. Rules were set up by the student council in regard to Freshmen and also FFA initiation The student council set up and carried out the "mock" election for the President and Vice President of the United States on November 4, 1952. The stu- dent council also made suggestions in regard to improvement of the curriculum and the physical plant. We hope that this form of student government will become a tradition in Adams Central in years to come. Complimentr of FIRST STATE BANK Decatur 606601666 .- .sq 4"X MR.

The Greyhound varsity basketball team came through the season with a relatively smaller percent of wins than last year, winning seven and losing twelve. The team began the season with themselves always on the short end of the game. But in the latter part of the season the Greyhounds began showing much improvement and the number of wins increased. With Roger Longenberger being the only regular back this year, lack of experience proved to be one of our defeating factors. But next year with jack Hendricks, Harold Arnold, junior Nussbaum, Bob Heare, Roddy Beer, Bill Ross and Tom Hoffman our team should win lots of respect. We think that our boys did a swell job this year under the direction of our coach, Max Stanley, who did his job very well as coach. Good luck from the Senior Class.
