Sometimes right beside us in our daily lives is a “very remarkable fellow” such as our Joe.

He acquired many friends during his years of service as custodian at Kirkland and Adams Central High School.County Central Schools ams John 0.

BerneSettion, 'Pwft tecfy Picking up the Monroe Gazette one early morning in the year of 1972, I glanced, as usual, at the headlines. It seems that some people would have a little consideration for John Rowdon. He was caught a few weeks ago trying to bum a ride on a train. When asked what he was trying to do, his only answer was “Huh.” What more could he say when he saw a gun being pointed at him by none other than the most deadly shot in all the United States. Sheriff Goldie Hollopeter. After John regained his senses, he asked to see his lawyer. Today is the day of his trial. His lawyer. Miles Zimmerman, is quoted: “I aim to save this bum (oops, I mean man) from this incriminating offense.” Reading down a bit farther I saw where the President. Patsy Urick. was going before the House to overrule the sale of bubble gum. A complaint was sent to President Urick from the new teenage rave, Dorothy Lambert, who has taken the place of Terry Moore. The other night at the premiere of Miss Lambert’s new picture, there was a riot between Vernon Ratcliff and Dave Helmrich, the two top bubble salesmen. Miss Lambert tried to stop the fight and in doing so got bubble gum in her hair. She cannot be seen in public for she had all her hair extracted. In reading the foreign news. I saw where Germany’s prime minister, Bernd Van Ruschen, was traveling to Lon- don, England, to spend a few days with the Duke of Wind- sor. the former Ronald Wagley of Monroe, Indiana. They are planning to attend the polo game which features the greatest polo player in Europe. Jim Lobsiger and his won- der horse, Rover. Mr. Lobsiger has played against all the polo players in the United States and Europe and has never been defeated. “Oil has been struck in Texas.” Yes. that’s what it said. “After all these years of trying. Mr. Roderick Beer and Mr. Richard Rumple finally became rich.” It seems only a few years ago that they started to drill for oil in hopes of getting enough money for the two mer. to buy themselves the goat ranch they have always wanted. They always did go for goat's milk. Well, what do you know? Ringley Brothers got them a new lion tamer. You couldn’t find me in a cage with one of those animals. I sure hope Miss Shaw knows what she is doing. It says here, “Miss Mary Jane Shaw will show the world her excellent control over her favorite cat. Chin- go. tonight at the fair grounds. Be sure to attend.” “Young whirl-wind discovers Rabies cure.” Young How- ard Michaels, who has been studying Science for only several years, floors Professor Albert Einstein and others by coming up with an amazing discovery for Dog Rabies. “If your dog has rabies,” says Dr. Michaels, “douse him in this special rabi solution. He will come out spotless and rabiless. Try it and see.” “Soap king sells out. Planning to retire.” Allen (Pee Wee) Lehman is planning to sell out his large soap plant located on the outskirts of Monroe to Gordon Singleton. The two men met yesterday to discuss terms of the sale. While discussing the sale, Mr. Lehman broke down in a flood of tears. “This was my life,” sobbed Mr. Lehman. “Please take care of the plant and all the employees, they have been so nice to me. Why last year they gave me a year’s supply of our nice soap for Christmas.” Mr. Single- ton, hearing the crying man tell of some of his saddest moments with the plant, also began to sob. Both men clung to each other and since the office was beginning to fill up with tears, Mr. Lehman’s secretary. Kay Ann Witte, called the doctor and the janitor to clean up the mess. Upon the doctor’s arrival, he found both men lying on the floor, exhausted from the cry. “Mrs. John Smith, alias Ardola Parrish, mourns loss of fifth husband.” Today Mrs. John Smith lost her fifth husband, the wealthy John Smith. Undertaker Jim Bau- man, who has investigated the mysterious death of all five men. says there is no trace of poison or any other illegal doings. Of course no one thinks innocent Mrs. Smith did anything, although she did inherit all of the wealthy men’s money. Upon finishing school. Johnny Bluhm took up tap dancing lessons with Arthur Murray’s assistant, Fred Fox. The two men became so attached to each other that Arthur had to fire Mr. Fox. That was the worst thing he could have done, for now the two of them are appearing to- gether on their own TV program. Everyone watch your screens and tubes. Fred has big feet. “Flying Saucer seen in Mountain area.” Oh, don’t be alarmed folks, just keep your seats. It is just John Rip- ley. following in his father’s footsteps, teaching his fif- teen children to yodel and sing “Hilly Billy Music.” Playing tonight at Carnegie Hall will be the great violin- ist, Ruth Mae Weber. On the program of entertaining music for the evening will be Beethoven’s “MIDNIGHT RIDE.” (I think it is Beethoven’s.) Attending this con- cert will be Larry Schwartz and his swinging five, who are known throughout the United States as the hottest com pickers around. “It will do these boys some good to listen to some cool music for a change,” says Mr. Schwartz. Reading the Society page. I noticed a new article called, “Your Love Problems.” The title sounded interesting so I began reading. “If you are tied down, don’t fret. I’m tied too says Don Barger, writer of the article. “Don’t let trifle things get you down, join the rest of us guys who are spending our nights in the gutter because of heartbreak. Whatever you do, never let your wife know how you feel. If she knew she would probably send you to bed without any supper and that would be drastic. So men. if you have problems, let me help. Just send your cards and letters to me, Donald Barger, 1234 North Second Street. Monroe, Indiana, and I will answer them as soon as possible.” Also on the Society page, was a brief article on Elaine Stultz. She got herself a man. She always did go for the dark and handsome and here she shows up with Liberace’s nephew. Whew! Some people have all the luck. Say, now, shouldn’t I recognize that woman. Of course, that is Florine Hirschy. Where did she get all those brats, er . . . I mean children. They have even got their pictures in the paper. It says here, “Youngest mother in the United States to have four sets of twins. During a cen- sus taken last year it was discovered that 28 year old Florine Hirschy is the youngest mother of the most child- ren.” Just think, eight kids in a little less than seven years. Help wanted. Some one to hold glue bottle while glue is being applied. If you are interested, see the manager, Mr. David Liby between now and Friday. Must have long, strong fingers. If the manager isn’t in. consult the nearest drugstore. You will probably find him there buying more glue. Compliments of DUTCH MILL, BlufftonOcm Stony As we look back into the pages of time we find that when the class of 1955 entered high school, there were 32 eager, green freshmen who started their first year with Larry Schwartz as President; John Bluhm as Vice President; Ardola Parrish as Secretary; Alvin Schwartz as Treasurer; and Miss Beavers as Class Sponsor. We held a class party in the fall of that year and ended the year with an- other one. Oh! were those seniors ever hard on us . . . When we came back the following fall as sopho- mores, we had one thing that we didn’t have to worry about—no more initiation. We started out by electing Larry Schwartz, President; Shirley Ru- pert, Vice President; Elaine Stultz, Secretary; and Allen Lehman, Treasurer. There were only 28 of us back for our second year of high school and our first class party. We started two new things in the school this year. The selling of sweaters and a carnival, which proved to be more fun for us than the visitors. We held our second class party and were out for a fun filled summer vacation. We entered our Junior year 28 strong and elected the officers; Larry Schwartz, President; John Rip- ley, Vice President; Allen Lehman, Secretary- Treasurer. We started out by giving the seniors a good race in the magazine sales only to be edged out on the last day. We then thrilled the public with the play of the year, “Stranger in the Night.” We also spon- sored a bake sale and a scrap drive to raise money. Between semesters we moved to the new build- ing. What a change! In the spring we sponsored a skating party up at Bell’s. Everyone attending had a good time. We didn’t do much the rest of the year, just waited for it to end. At last our senior year, ah! and in the new build- ing for the whole year. The first graduating class to spend a whole year in the new structure. We elected officers again: Larry Schwartz, President (he’s had a 4 year term); John Ripley, Vice President (he’s repeating too); Elaine Stultz, Secretary (back from the sophomore year); and Allen Lehman, (old money bags) Treasurer. The magazine sales were our first money making venture of the election. We came in second again (No Fuller Brush suspects in our class.) After the magazine sales were over we started to practice for what was the best attended play in the county (we think,) “New Fires.” Everyone enjoyed it but the director . . . she aged ten years at the prac- tices. In October we journeyed west . . . just to Bluffton, to have our pictures taken. After the hectic basketball season we left for the trip. We saw the capital building in Washington and most of the other federal buildings. Several other popular places were visited and then the trip home. Everyone enjoyed it very much. Baccalaureate, Commencement, and good-bye Adams Central. Compliments of BERNE ICE CREAM and MOSER MOTOR SALES, INC., BerneSection, 7{ M We. the Graduating class of 1955, being ot perfect physi- cal health and with sound and now brilliant minds, con- trary to the opinion of others, do hereby publish our last will and testament, rendering null and void all other state- ments which may have been made during a brief period of sanity, while attending the Adams Central High School. To Mr. Reed, our beloved principal, we will a page in the annals of time recording all the endurance records which he has established while supervising us. To Mr. Collier and Miss Beihold. our everpresent spon- sors, we will five years of rest before having to sponsor another group. To the rest of the faculty we will peace and quiet for future years, as well as all the notes, paper airplanes, squirt guns, and other outlawed articles which have been found in our possession. We also will them a class that will, like us, never tire of their work. To the Juniors, we will our quiet dispositions and our shoes which we so capably have filled during the past year with hopes that all the joys that have been ours will be theirs in their Senior year. To the Sophomores, we will a booth in the back of Kirk’s Place, the one that we were kicked out of. for the next two years and hope that they will use it in the correct manner. To the Freshmen, we will our sense of humor, without which we would have found school life painful indeed; and which will do much to make it endurable for them. I, Donald Barger, will my innocent manner when accused of something to Arlen Mitchell. I. James Bauman, will my track ability to Jerry Sprunger, and wish him the best of luck. I, Roderick Beer, will to Gary McMillen my four years of basketball on the varsity team. I, John Bluhm, will the handling of the school projector to Paul Germann and hope that he finds as helpful an assistant as he has been to me. I, Frederick Fox, will my deep bass voice to Dickie Landis and my cheerleading ability to Bob Fosnaugh. I. David Helmrich, will my ability to get along with any down-hearted person at any time to Karen Snyder be- lieving that she will capably do the job. I, Florine Hirschy, will to Carolyn Christener. my ability to go with a graduate of the class of ’S3. I, Goldie Hollopeter. will my ability to go with a boy in my class to Sue Roop. I, Dorothy Lambert, will my empty locker to whomever can learn the combination. I, Allen Lehman, will my ability to be seen with the right girl at the right time to Jerry Mitchel, and my scholas- tic ability to Harold Dick. I, James Lobsiger, will my knowledge of when and where to run out of gas to Kenny Baumgartner. I, Howard Michaels, will my whole library of “Mechanics Illustrated” and “Over-rated” to Gene .McKean, after I am through with them—especially the worn out ones. I. Ardola Parrish will my petite stature and social stand- ing to Nancy Parrish, and my annual editorialship to Lowell Michaels. I, Vernon Ratcliff, will my knack to get into trouble at the most inconvenient times to Kay Heare and Diane Liechty, who seem to know pretty well how to do it anyway. I, John Ripley, will my dreamy eyes and stylish haircut to Dick Rowdon and my school offices to Jim Fisher. I, Jack Rowdon. will my quiet and intelligent ways to Winston Lister. I, Dick Rumple, will my height and basketball ability to Palmer Inniger. I, Bcrnd Van Ruschen, will my whistling ability to enter- tain myself when idle to Richard Kaehr. I, Larry Schwartz, will my FFA standings to Dee Byerly and hope that he will attain the standings that I have. I, Janet Shady, will to Sonja Schug my height so that she may see what the people look like from above. I, Mary Jane Shaw, will everything I have received from school these last four years to Carol Egley with hopes that she enjoys it as much as I have. I, Gordon Singleton, will my pleasing smile to Marjorie Bee her. I, Elaine Stultz, will my ability to stay away from boys until my senior year to my sister, Linda Ann. I. Patsy Crick, will my quiet ways to Costa Hike and my friendly smile to Mary Haugk. I, Ruth Mae Weber, will to Marvin Zurcher my studious manners and hope that he will use them. I. Ronnie Wagley, will to Gary Ringger my broken chemis- try test tubes. I. Kay Ann Witte, will to Marilyn Arnold my ability to go steady with a boy in the class of 56. Warning! All girls stay away from my Kenny.” I, Miles Zimmerman, will to Larry Myers my path on the Peterson Road. In witness, herewith, we the undersigned have set our hand and seal on this first day of February, in the year of Our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-Five.

The play, di- rected by Miss Beavers, was the story of an author who visited his inherited farm in an effort to regain his writing muse and to teach his sophisticated family the true values of life. This was accomplished after many serious and amusing events. We THE CAST They’re wailing for us, dear.
