Almost two years have passed since I came to Adams Central. During that time it has been my good fortune to become acquainted with many of the parents and students in our public school system. I ' m happy to report on the growth in education in our school. This has progressed through the continued interest of the Staff to give the best possible educational leader- ship for our young people. The student personnel have impressed me with their ap- preciation of good learning habits. The school system can only be successful when the student population realizes and takes advantage of instruction that is molded to bring forth their growth and development. This in the function of edu- cation that gives this charge to the 1954 class--What have you done--What can youdo--that is the test.

Officers were elected at the beginning of the year They were: President, Harold Arnold; Vice-President, Pearl Huser; Secretary, Patty Beitler; 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. 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 Egly; Vice-President, Jack Hendricks; Secretary Ruth Busse- 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 Sowards; Jack Hendricks joined the U S Marines- Caro Moser transferred to Berne, and Albert Thompson moved. Senior officers are: President, Sherman Arnold; Vice-President, Junior Nussbaum; Secretary Ruth Busse- 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 guideposts for our future success. " To make money for our senior trip we have had the concessions at ball games, competed in the magazine sales (we won), 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 Sherman Arnold Sherman is one of our yell leaders, A rough time he gives all the teachers.

Vi 20 , ' jz. . i= i N » s?o Swrsjooi Se u i @tcte ' PtofiJteccf 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 (quote) She is slowly but certainly running Marilyn Monroe out of business. (Unquote) 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 will have 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? A jet 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 ownshoppe, 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.

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. Starting with 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 Principal ' s Desk, " and " Coach ' s Comments " features. The Greyhound Gazette has a circulation of ap- proximately 150 with a copy of each issue sent to the county schools, the county Superintendent ' s office and the city Superintendent of schools of Danville, 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 were also aided by a larger staff and by having our own mimeographing machine. Compliment of Coppess Corner and Mattax Auto Paint Shop, Monroe. fcrs. " xs w» Thetwirlers of A. C. H.

These boys are Bob Heare, Junior Nussbaum, and Roddy Beer. Another handicap the Greyhounds were 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 Heare, 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. We wish Don Arnold, the new coach, good luck as he works with the boys.

SW s 7e The Adams Central baseball team this year played its first season of baseball. Baseball seemed quite different from Softball to the boys, but still they finished the regularly sched- uled season games with a fair record by winning 3 games out of 5. They then lost to Ossion to end the baseball season with a .500 percentage record, winning 3 games and losing 3. Albert Egly led the team in batting with a .316 percent- age as many of the boys found it more difficult to hit a base- ball than a softball. Next years team should find a number of capable players as only 5 players will be lost from the team by graduation. Are you safe, Junior? Pit, ch ■ i U in Compliments of The Kent Realty Auction Co.

The queen was Sigrun Karsunky, and the attendants were Ruth Busse, Carol Yoder, Florine Hirschy and Shirley Rupert. The band played tribute to our royal court as the queen and her attendants took their places on the stage. The election of the Centralis queen and her at- tendants was done by the student body, first choosing five girls from the Senior and Junior classes and from this group of five, another election was held to determine which girl would reign as queen. The boy to crown the queen was chosen by the basketball team. Roddy Beer was chosen to do this. On October 10th, the annual hayride was given bytheRekamemohClubandFFA. The big event of the evening was the crowning of the Farmer and Farmer ' s Wife. Richard Kaehr and Florine Hirschy were crowned by Mr. Reed. The couple was judged on who looked the most like a farmer and his wife.
