Do we have his¬ tory or English next? Is this test day? These questions and many others were heard constantly around the halls of A.C.H.S. From the minute one got on the bus at dawn, and yelled at the bus driver to turn on the heater, till that " welcome bell " rang to tell us that school was out, work and fun were exper¬ ienced by the faculty and students. But studying wasn ' t all we did. Photography, art, rifle, math, pep, archery, FFA, and Rekamemoh were the clubs that broadened special interests. " Where ' s thos e grey¬ hounds! " could be heard from that roaring pep club. Bi-monthly chapel programs brought us good talks from ministers of surrounding churches. The sound of happy voices, the spirit of good sports, our assembly programs, clubs, studies, and the molding of our ideals and inspirations, all blend¬ ed into high school experiences that we remember as " THE CENTRAL WAY.

Perhaps it ' s an unusual verb that has captured the imaginations of Miss Beihold ' s English 9-A pupils!

Mr. Haggard points out to the U.S. History class, the location of the Suez Crisis. z«tct cfasiacten, . . . Compliments of SPRUNGER LEHMAN and BERNE LOCKER STORAGE Berne To mold us into what we should be is the task of these subjects—the ones that form our way of developing personality and character. Weekly sessions with " Our Times " helped social studies pupils keep pace with the history being made today in the Near East and Europe. We learned we needed to become skilled in writing, reading, and spelling, in order to measure up to a more demand¬ ing world; thus English still grew in importance. Great literature, a " bonus " of the English-literature course, rounded out our appreciation of the arts, which was furthered by the music and art depart¬ ments, while some embarked on the language of Latin,- cutting yet another facet in the Central way of learning. Several pupils know the meaning of Ego amo te in Mrs. Stucky ' s Latin class. 5 Practicing what we learned in class was our method of carrying out good citizenship. Four social studies p upils collaborated on Citizenship Day speeches for the PTA, and seven more became " public servants " for Central ' s own mock national election. Thanksgiving traditions were again ob¬ served with the FFA ' s eleven " good will " baskets and assembly, plus the posters made by grade pupils. Mid-December saw the Home Ec. depart¬ ment launch a week-long campaign for better breakfasts, completing this segment of the Cen¬ tral " Good Citizenship " cycle. Speech pupils Jane Uhrick, Mark Ripley, Karen Reed, and Ron Gerber chose Citizenship for their topics when they spoke at the November PTA meeting. 2 facotttuty fatten,. ,, Eleven pupils from Mrs. Mills ' third grade room pose with the bulletin board located in the second primary wing.

F FA Thanksgiving program. I ! Centrals ' farm boys have the opportunity to learn and practice many new and modern farming techniques. Mr. Watson, instructor, teaches them how to test soils, judge livestock, cull poultry, and other general farm practices. Jerry Gerber and Donald Ray are candling eggs at a contest. The boys won first place. Compliments of GERBER FURNITURE UPHOLSTERY DUTCH MILL Bluffton 7 Cecvut t£e Mr. Watson ' s freshmen Ag class are working on their record books, another one of their many projects. Bob Schwartz, Max Egley, and Norman Hart watch closely, as Mr. Collier demonstrates how to use the table saw. 8 Kathleen Adler, Linda Reber, Evelyn McKean, Kay Singleton and Inez Merriman busily prepare the foods assigned to each one by Mrs. Ellis. Miss Beavers explains the ratio of exterior to interior angles on the triangle to Kathleen Adler and Linda Reber of the Sophomore Math Class. frv cCcd ' • • Industrial Art classes have the convenience of many new machines and devices in our well equipped work shop. Mr. Collier instructs the boys how to work with different kinds of wood and metals, and also, how to operate the machines safely. Industrial Arts Sophomore boys are very absorbed in their wood work.

MODEL HATCHERY STUCKY FURNITURE Monroe 9 7 7 £a t a £utu e Who knows what profession will branch off from taking a subject in com¬ merce? It may be anything from secre¬ tarial or accountant work to journalism, especially for those racers who do their hotrodding on typewriters! This department opens to Centralites when they become juniors, taking at least an hour of most upperclassmen ' s time with typing or bookkeeping. Bookkeeping is another of the essential com¬ mercial subjects. Miss Cornett instructs this 11-12 grade class. Mr. Fruth gives pointers to Richard Hirschy for improving his typing speed and accuracy. In typing I class, Lloyd Zimmerman receives instructions from Miss Cornett. 10 asieen Typical frosh science projects such as leaf and insect collecting, interest many pupils enough to take physics and chemistry when they become juniors and seniors. This year was " chemistry year, " for physics took its turn in ' 55- ' 56 as an alternate course. Science is a good foundation for many types of careers, and attracted over 250 pupils this year. Larry Foreman names part of his biology insect collec tion to Mabel Bowers and Bob Brown. Instructor Mr. LeMaster asks a question in 9-A biology. Mr. LeMaster demonstrates the distillation of water for chemistry pupils Arlene Freels, Ludmila Gorb, Leslie Ploughe, and Bob Wechter. Compliments of SMITH SCRAP IRON CO. and CORSON DURACLEANERS Decatur 11 Compliments of MORRISON FARM STORE " Give a man an idea that burns inside him, and he will express himself well " was one self-made man ' s viewpoint of promoting initiative and self-reliance. But learning how by practicing is still the best way. In speech, a pupil develops an easy speaking manner and poise by practicing the " real thing " weekly before his critical classmates. Drivers ' education turns out capable drivers from pupils who might not have had the time to spend studying technique. The Home Ec. department adds to a girl ' s homemaking ability by concentrating on the new ways of preparing food and making a good home. First semester Driver ' s Ed. group looks on as instructor Mr. Cable, explains the location of the air breather.

Jim Hoffman and Barbara Fiechter are head of the Coat Check at all of our home games. , , .futile, frue tcCCt te4 cutcC One of the things school does is simply bring us together; we find new friends, join outside activities, and shape much of our social life by just coming to Central. These snaps picture the Central Way of develop¬ ing friendliness and sociability. It results in a feeling of " togetherness " that lasts long after Graduation Day. At Central social life centers around the junior and senior skating parties and those get-togethers each class holds every semester. At Marilou Uhrick ' s New Year ' s Eve party—Midnight—Winston Lister wishes all a " Happy New Year! " Compliments of DECATUR IMPLEMENT and WORTHMAN AND RAYER BARBER Decatur Which suitor will succeed? At the Junior Class party Jerry Beard and Winston Lister were assigned a conse¬ quence of asking some girl (which turned out to be Pat Liechty) to marry them—all in fun of course. 14 Linda Stultz, Carol Heller, Virginia Steffen, Karen Reed, and More of A.C.

Many Remember. . . Slumber parties where everyone fell asleep earlier than expected, with a Pat Boone record playing all night as a re¬ sult. Or the " special " dates—that would never have come about without Central ' s way of helping us to gain poise, and develop friendliness and sociability. Compliments of ROSE HILL DAIRY and PETERSON GRAIN Peterson Housekeeping is to be their career. The gals sporting a sparkle on their left hand are Joyce Irwin, Flossie Schwartz, Marjorie Sprunger, Cynthia Lehman, and, not pictured, Mariana Jauregui. Cynthia also earned the title " Homemaker of Tomor¬ row " by getting the highest score in a Home Economics state examination. Seeing who can imitate a rooster ' s crow best, at the Junior Class party, are Richards Myers and Murl Yoder. 15 . Our new track field, which was started in September, 1956, and finished this spring, is one-fourth mile long with a 220 straight away. Part of the equipment for use on the track was made by the Industrial Art classes. Jim Steiner tries his leg strength on the horizontal ,,, efc ctevetofe ' Mr. Fruth instructs the 9th grade Phys. Ed. boys, on good basketball playing techniques. 16 McMillen makes a quick, sure, pass to Ripley. Miss Cornett, girls Phys. Ed. instructor, shows Carol Haggard a good stance for getting the ball through the net. huuC cutcC foctceA There must be four parts to every ideal of fitness that is " The Central Way " : mental, spiritual, social, and physical. Yes, sports are an important part, and can con¬ tribute much to Central if everyone participates. Both freshman and sophomore boys and girls were re¬ quired to take physical education, while upperclass¬ men participated by way of intramurals and varsity sports. Track as a spring sport is beginning to shine as a pepper-upper during the home stretch of the school year. The new track field thus benefited not just the varsity teammates in practice, but the whole physical education program. Compliments of STUCKY ' S GAS APPLIANCE E. C. STUCKY SOIL SERVICE Geneva Competing in the county high jump, Dave Smith tries to beat his own record. 17 ACTIVITIES Extra-curricular activities lend extra spark to school life and so prompt us to become helpful in community activities and to mingle with the groups interested in a common topic. The PTA is active in helping parents, teachers, and pupils to work together so the Central way can be improved even more. Student groups help assure the safety of the school pupils getting on and off the busses and coming to the school from town,- promote student government; and assist in remodeling and expanding the library to accommodate a growing school. There are the three bands, the chorus and its auxiliary ensemble groups to develop musical interests and provide more than a passing interest in the arts. Also there are seven clubs, which meet on Club Day, a half hour period each Friday, to find one ' s own special hobby interests.

Berne Queen Carol poses after receiving the crown and roses. Saturday, December 15, at the Berne-A.C. basketball game, was held the coronation of Cen-Trails ' king and queen. An evening of deep, dark secrets, curiosities labored overtime, for not even the court knew just who the king and queen would be. As the procession began be¬ tween halves of the second team ' s battle, the junior attendants, bearing the crown and roses, preceeded the five couples across the gym floor and onto the stage. It was decorated with a stone wall backing, a rose arbor with pine boughs and paper roses entwined on it, and a Cen-Trails King and Queen sign above the arbor. In the new way of announcing the names, the crownbearer, Linda Rich, presented the crown to the king, who in turn led the queen to her place, surrounded by the court. The queen then re¬ ceived a bouquet of roses from the junior attend¬ ant, Ronnie Steury.

Se u ym ncucilef recall. . , September 1953. .. Fifty-two eager freshmen be¬ gan their journey down the Central Way. President, Carol Kaehr; Vice-Pres., Sam Girod; and Sec.-Treas., Tom Hoffman elected as our offi¬ cers, we approached the highlight of our freshman year. Initiation!! We donned pigtails and shoe pol¬ ish to pass the crucial test set up by the Student Council. With this memorable date behind us we began the long tedious days until the time when we would reign as the seniors of ACHS. In our sophomore year, under the direction of our worthy officers. . .Mark Ripley, President,- Gret¬ chen Schnepp, Vice-Pres.; Cynthia Lehman, Sec.; and Charlie Heare, Treas.—we sold engraved sta¬ tionary to the friends and members of our class. This year a spooky Halloween party roused us from the daily work of class lessons. YOU CANT KISS CAROLINE was staged in our junior year, and a few weeks later the class had an evening on the town when we traveled to Fort Wayne to enjoy a supper and movie. The leaders of our class were Ron Corson, President; Wayne Byer- ly. Vice Pres.; Betty Steury, Sec.; and Carol Kaehr, Treas. They had a busy time conducting the maga¬ zine sales campaign. John Fruth and Mrs. Mary Gallivan were our sponsors during the senior year and chosen as offi¬ cers were Ron Corson, President; Dave Smith, Vice Pres,; Sonja Yoder, Sec.; and Gretchen Schnepp, Treas. With a whirlwind pace set up for us, we began our Senior year selling magazines and cards, fol¬ lowing close behing was the senior play QUIET SUMMER, the senior skating party, and the busy job of managing concessions at all home basketball games. The last two weeks of our school years climaxed everything we had worked for when we finally left on our trip to Washington, D. C. and then re¬ turned to Central for the Baccalaureate. Our final footsteps on the Central Way took place when we received our diplomas at the impressive Commence¬ ment exercises.
