President Vice -President . . . Secretary . . . Treasurer We began our freshman yearwith42 students enrolled. Officers were elected at the beginning of the year. They were: President, Harold ArnoldpVice-President, Pearl Huserg Secretary, Patty Beitlerg Treasurer, Lester Egly, Our sponsor was J. E. Thacker. We enjoyed our first high school class party at the gymnasium in April. Back again as sophomores. The name of "green freshmen" could no longer be pinned on us. The officers of that year were: President, Junior Nussbaum, Vice -President, Sherman Arnold, Secretary, Juanita Sapp, Treasurer, Patty Beitler: and Wilbert Lightle was the sponsor. r To give our class treasury a boost, we collected class dues from each member. We had one party at the Bluffton C. C. C. Camp. . As juniors we participated in many activities: the magazine, bracelet, and emblem sales and we sponsored the skating party. We also gave our class play entitled "The Hoosier Schoolmaster". The Junior class officers were: President, Lester Eglyg Vice -President, Jack Hendricks, Secretary, Ruth Busseg Treasurer, Junior Nussbaum, and the sponsors were Mr. Ray and Mr. Erdel. At last the big day arrived. We are seniors! But we are minus six of our class members. Patty Beitler married a classmate, Harold Arnold, Juanita Sapp married a graduate, Paul Sowardsg Jack Hendricks joined the U. S. Marinesg Caro Moser transferred to Berne, and Albert Thompson moved. Senior officers are: President, Sherman Arnoldg Vice-President, Junior Nussbaumg Secretary, Ruth Busseg Treasurer, Carol Yoder, Sponsors, Mr. Haggard and Mr. Hedges. For our class colors we chose lavender and white. Our class flower is the red rose and our motto is "Our past failures will be guideposrs for our future success." To make moneyfor our senior trip we have had the concessions at ball games,competed in the magazine sales fwe wonj, had bake sales, and sold Christmas Cards. On May 10 we are to make a trip to Washington D. C. and everyone is looking forward to it. The Baccalaureate service is to be held May 16 and Commencement exercises on May 19. With our high school days coming to a close, we the "seniors of 54" feel very happy and fortunate to be the first class to graduate from the new building of the Adams Central High School. 14 . ,..,'.... ,V ..1g f..

W? 2-is? - , ...-,,-,m-, ,,,.,. , me ..,.-,,.-.,....iL Well, here we are, the year of 1970, having a reunion of the 1954 class. Our reunion is being held at the Great National Park in Monroe, Indiana, don- ated by Jean Weaver who now owns 40 parks over the United States. My, it certainly seems good to talk to all of our class mates once more. Of course, you know that Shirley Ploughe is President of the United States now. Hurrah! Just what we need, a woman president. She tells us that Carl Bluhm is now her private secretary and he is doing a very fine job. Sigrun Karsunky and Alexander Gorb who were married in Germany, have flown back to our reunion and seem very pleased to see us all once more. Gee Whiz!! What next?! Robert Heare tells us that he has taken over channel 33, Station WKJG, TV. He has a 30 minute program called"Women Are Funny." One of his top actresses is Ruth Busse. Mr. Heare says fquotel She is slowly but certainly running Marilyn Monroe out of business. fUnquotej Sherman Arnold and Kenneth Frank are now taking over the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis program. What a team! Lester Egly is now coach of the Chicago Cubs and says that Phillip "Junior" Nussbaum, his star player is in bed with the measles. Junior's doctor, Nolan Griffiths, says he willhave to stay in bed a week at the least. We're sorry that Junior couldn't attend the reunion. William Ross is now in the "Gene Hindenlang Memorial Hospital" with a broken leg, the results of refereeing a wrestling bout between Phyllis Mattax and Norma Conrad. Ross says he will never referee a women's wrestling match again. Richard Longenberger won the 500 mile race at Indianapolis this year. Raymond Becher placed second in the race. He was driving an Oldsmobile Special, but he just couldn't catch Longenberger's "zooped up Ford," Velma Strahm, the Hollywood movie actress, greeted the winner as he finished the last lap of the race. Harry Mazelin is now supervising an atomic plant at Magley, Indiana. Carolyn Hirschy, his assistant, says she is afraid it will blow up and Harry will be blown apart. Listen! What's that roar over head? Ajet plane has landed and look who's climbing out: Paul Hill, the pilot and Danny Gerber, the co-pilot. They are employed at Baer Field. Here is Lt. Donald Graber and Gen. Robert Steury. They say they are glad they enlisted in the army after they graduated. Both are now enjoying their career. Ronald Stuckey is now the professor of the Ball State College. He says that Faye Haines and Barbara Haugk are very efficient teachers. We always knew they would be a success. What's this?! Leon Habegger is now a minister of the large Methodist Church in Washington D. C. He tells us the President attends his church. Carol Yoder, a beautician, now owns and operates her own shoppe, in New York. She says business is lousy. Why, here is another of our classmates, David Ringger. As you know, David is now the champion hog caller of Indiana. .This has been a very exciting day for all of us. Now it is time to say good-bye until our next reunion.

Our class activities thus far have been limited to one class party. But we have hopes of hav- ing another party, of ordering our class rings, and of sponsoring some money making events for a boost to our treasury.

That is, read all about the Greyhound Gazette which is doing even better this year than last year, when the school news- paper was still in the experimental stage. Startingwith our October issue we have published a newspaper monthly. It has been filled with the activities of our school, besides the interesting fea- tures, "Personality of the Month," "Right Around School, There Ought to be a Rule," "inquiring Re- porter," the editorial with its accompaning cartoon, and occasional "From the Principa1's Desk," and "Coach's Comments" features. The Greyhound Gazette has a circulation of ap- proximately 150 withacopy of each issue sent to the county schools, the county Superintendent 's office and the city Superintendent ofschools ofDanville, Illinois. Expanding our activities we sponsored a coat checking service at the home games during the second semester and have done a little custom work for some of the teachers. Our work this year could not have been accomp- lished without the fine co-operation of each staff member who is exercising his interest in journalism plus the splendid supervising of our Greyhound Gazette advisor, Miss Beihold. We werealso aided bya larger staff and by having our own mimeographing machine. Compliment of Coppess Corner and Mattax Auto Paint Shop, Monroe. f.Lv6 h.X TXXX X XX 5. XX XXXXX ima The twirlers of A.

Another handicap the Greyhounds confronted with is the lack of height, Roddy Beer being the only player who stands 6 feet. The 1954-55 season will be minus four players, Bob l-leare, Junior Nussbaum, Bill Ross, and Lester Egly, Grad- uation takes these boys from the team. There were three Juniors, Roddy Beer, John Rowdon, and Allen Lehman on the varsity this year and three Sopho- mores, Kenneth Baumgartner, Albert Egly, and Dee Myron Byerly.
