The seniors of 1958 presen-t the Golden Haze to reflect the godden haze of memories, on
its thirty-first anniversary.
Thirtyeone years ago a group of the graduating class od 1927 put their heads together
to combine their ideas into one, that of constructing A'kron's first annual. Sponsored by
Robert Allen the staff was composed of:
Editor-in-Chie-f .............. -- --- Herrell Berger
Business Manager ........ .....,..... H arold Bowen
Circulation Manager .... .............. R obert Flohr

They asked for ideas from the class for its name and decided on "The Golden Haze"
in association with the haze, carved in gold in each student's memory.
Tfhe theme of that first Golden Haze was of gypsy ideas which, aside If-rom looking back,
gazed into the future. This future must have been the year of "Satellites 6- Sputniksf'
"Punk" Kinder was photographer and the book was published in the local newspaper
office. Together with the efforts of the class, totaling 27, the staff produced our first annual,
easily covering 'their expenses' and left a bal-ance to be added to the advancing class's
funds, by which -to better their book.
On t'his, the thirtxy'-first anniversary of our year book, we hope the Golden Haze of 1958
will bring back memories to cherish in the years to come.

.Mafory of Cfaaa of 1958
We, the Seniors of '58, began our academic career
when forty-six of us entered the first grade in
September, 1946. The teachers who helped to push
us over the rough spots in the three r's were Mrs.
Irlan, Mrs. Mathiesen, and Mrs. Hodson. Our fourth
'year in school was highlighted by moving to the
new grade building in mid-term. Say, do you re-
member the many art projects we had under the
supervision af Mrs. Yager. Our enthusiasm knew
no bounds, -but Mrs. Yager had to draw the line
when we started applying drawings to the new
building with rocks. Another memory of the grade
Zyears is the paddlings administered by +Miss Rose,
our fifth grade teacher, for failure to learn our multi-
pl-ication tables. Many will remember the operetta
"Season of Happiness" presented when we were
big sixth graders. Channing Utter, janet Hammond,
Steve Harris, and Ruth Mohler starred as the sea-
sons. Also in the sixth grade, five black marks on
Williamsons citizenship chart meant a trip
through the paddling machine unless you had them
irased by doing good deeds such as Washing the
' lacleboard. -,
'Among those who passed through our class in the
grade years are Ben Salyers, joe Dale Miller,
Sandra Saggers, jo Ann Fites, Sandra Van Lue, jim
Reed, Carol Smith, Lester Howard, Gloria McCloug-
han Patty Floor, Wilma Ruff, Gloria Creveston, Vera
Auker Larry Arvin, Larry Leininger, and jo Ann
The year 1952, we entered the high school build-
ing as little seventh graders. Mr. Mathiesen and
Miss Bevington were there to guide us, as our
sponsors, throughout the junior high school years.
Sports was one of the main interests and with the
coaching of Mr. Buzzard, our boys were able to win
the county junior high softball tournament. The
basketball record was six wins and six losses.
On May 14, 1954, forty-three boys and girls, with
shining faces, and wearing their new suits and
dresses, filled the front row of chairs and anxiously
waited for the awarding of diplomas. Little did we
realize how short the time would seem until we
would be occupying the chairs on stage.
It was 1954 and we found ourselves as Freshmen,
class officers were elected, they were: President,
Charles Millerp Vice-Presidnt, Paul Hltzelg Secretary-
Treasurer, janet Hammond. lMr. Meredith joined us
as sponsor. During this year, Sandra VanLue, a
member of the freshman class, became Akron's first
queen of the lvfentone Egg Show. Overcoming our
greenness, we found ourselves as sophomores and
in the real swing of high school activities such as
Sunshine, Hi-Y, and the All-School Skate. Class
officers were: President, Paul Heltzelp Vice-President,
Mary Newcome, Secretary-Treasurer, Sharon Royer.
juniors! A big sounding word: our school days
were limited. At the start of our next to the biggest
year, jim Reed was elected Presidentg Ross Burdg,
Vice-President, Sharon Royer, Secretary, and janet
Hammond, Treasurer. janet Hammond was also
selected as our yearbook editor and Terry Wal-
gamuth was selected to manage the canteen for us.
Magazine sales was a big project of the year and
Carol Whittenberger's team proved to be the best
salesmen. Channing Utter was top salesman of our
class and received a watch for his efforts. The tur-
key supper and class party were combinedp the
losing sales team headed the serving of the food
and also the dish-washing. Class rings of the "New
Twist" style were selected and after what seemed
like years, we rushed up to Groninger's jewelry
Store and traded our hard-earned money for shiny
new class rings. lln April, 1957, we presented our
first big dramatic production entitled "The Brain-
storm." As zero hour approached, many of us
wished we had put away our water pistols at prac-
tice and paid more attention to the directions of our
sponsor, Miss Bevington. We were hampered by
inclement weather on opening night, but, neverthe-
less, it was highly successful. In May, we took a
sizable portion of our project money and entertained
the Seniors at the Culver 'Inn on Lake Mafxinkuckee.
This, as well as the Sunshine-Hi-Y banquet, was
part of a memorable and successful year. Speaking
of memories, how about the ice-skating party at
Rock Lake and the operating of the canteen, all
parts of our next to the last high school year.
The days sped by and suddenly we realized we
were in our last year of high school. Class officers
for the final chapter were: jim Reed, President: Char-
les Miller, Vice-Presidentg Karen Thompson, Secre-
taryy Carol Whittenberger, Treasurer. Our dramatic
efforts went into the showing of "Rest Assured"
which dealt with a money-mad tycoon and his
dream. One night after play lpractice we held a sur-
prise birthday party for Miss Bevington, with plenty
of ice cream and cake for refreshments. At the end
of the semester we reluctantly turned the canteen
over to the junior class.
Our great expectations were finally fulfilled! The
time of the trip for which wie had been scrimping
and saving for the past six years had finally arrived.
At the Akron depot we 'bid good-bye to our families
and friends and left the juniors as the big shots of
A.H.S. for a week. Returning, a week later, we had
many tales of bustling New York and historic Wash-
ington to tell the underclassmen. Not many days
after the junior-Senior reception we found ourselves
with a diploma in one hand and a Bible in the other.
lf we were to name some memories that are not so
important, but nevertheless, all part of our school
years, we would start with our first day of school.
Channing started his first day with a -bang by turn-
ing -on the fire alarm, putting gravel in the drinking
fountain and getting into a fight with Steve Harris.
from which he received a bloody nose. By the way.
Con, do you remember the second grade music
class? Especially the time you were chewing gum
and Mrs. Rader was going to make you put it on
your nose, but you ran out of the building and
clirribed a tree and later went home. I hear you had
to apologize or take the consequences. Don't laugh.
Roy Lee, because you cried and hid behind the door
when you were supposed to have make-up applied
for the zoperetta. '
Thus the history of the class was closed and this
group no longer was as one-The Seniors of 19-58.

I, Channing Utter, stepped lightly from my one-man rocket
plane and flexed my muscles. Being cramped into that tiny
space ship for a flight from Neptune to Earth is still tiresome,
even though I had made the trip in a little under two hours
and fifteen seconds.
I rem-owed my helmet and bazsked in the rays of Earth's
sun forthe first time in forty years. It didn't seem possible
tlhgtn:oHrr3ii1ch time had elapsed since I had graduated from
As I walked down the main street of town, I saw Leininger
61 Sons. much like it had been before. Inside l found "tooth-
pic'ks" himself, I staggered in befwilderment for he was old,
gray and wrinkled. Then I realized -that anyone wrho spent
the past forty years on Earth would be changed, but not I,
for in space there is no age change. After Randall and I got
reacquainted we began asking each other about our class-
mates. He wanted to kno-w about Terry, Charles, Lyle,
Erma Ianet, Bonnie, Karen and Dick Smolker. First oftf, I told
him that Terry and Charles got themselves banished to lower
Sloibbovia for "drag racing" their Mutnilks down the milky
way. They weren't too sad -about the incident because
being Earth people they were treated royally in Slolbbovia.
Lyile is manager of the famous "Earthettes" who recently
won the Solar System basketball tournament. Fame has
finally hit Erma. She has just returned to -Neptune after
completing a solo flight around the universe in 80 'hours, in
Sputnik LIX. lanet and Sandy, you know, are making a great
deal of money as a result of their trip to Uranius, where they
learned the secret 'formula for the solution which restores
youth and beauty. Randall quickly mentioned that maybe
he could try some of their solution. Bonnie married the King
of luplter and moved there. She and her .six dfaugthters are
among the l5 best dressed ladies in the universe. Space
travel and living was getting difficult with the passing of
time because of the number of people inztenested in it.
Karen decided a new code of law was necessary. She took
the task of writing some that would tbe suitable for the whole
Solar System. She is expecting to finish this enormous job
in about a year. At the present she is having trouble trying
to solve the speed lifmit problem between Mercury and
Saturn. Dick holds the ihi-ghestposition possible in the lnter
Planetary Police Patrol. ln his -spare time he patrol-s the
constellation Southern Cross, 'he just can not separate work
from play. .
Now, I 'begin to ask Randall about some of our classmates
that stayed here on Earth such as Gary, Paul Mel'ba, Con
and Larry Rhoades. 'He said, Gary Brown is nofw a midget
due to an accident that occurred in Steve Harris' chemistry
lab. Gary .fell into a reducermix being concocted to reduce
the size of :termites and now Gary can be seen on Saturday
nights at the midget races. As for Steve, he discovered a
new rocket fuel by mixing one part layne Ma-nsfield's ohieese-
cakes with three parts TNT and 'has taken up a happy li-fe
of chasing Martian girls. Randall continued, 'Paul Heltzel has
finally realized his lifetime ambition, to be an engineer, he
now commutes ifactory workers to the new Hydro-statomatcal
Superjet Aircraft Corporation from Disko, Athens, and Mt.
Zion areas on the early morn-in-g 5:15 express. Melba, Betty
D. and 'Betty M. are officers of the now ifamed "Bro-kenhearted
Old Maids Clubs" with the motto "We will get our man."
Their husbands-to-be -became enthralled with Steve's new
lark of chasing outer space girls and joined forces with the
old boy. Randall sort of giggling contin-ued, Con, lim, and
Roy Lee combined -their three talents, beauty, brains and
brawn to form a corporation that makes a new kind of
fountain pen that writes on outer space. Remember how
Larry R. and Tom iF. used to like FFA. Well, they are atomic
farmers raising fabulous corn crops which yield up to 18
gallons to the acre.
As I left Leini-nger's Store I was in a happy mood. I
bought a newspaper and decided to 'sit and read awhile.
The headlin-es read "Two of Akron's Axlutmni Novw World
Renofwnf' Ross and Norman 'have become fabulously
wealthy from their new invention. They found that if they
mixed chloroform, ground up Elvis Presley records, fall out
and two snorts of "Old Factory Whistle", with 3 oz. ether,
they had -a perfume with 100 times more power than "My
Sin" and "Better Not" put together. These boys got their
wealth not only .frofm the fact that the perfume is so powerful,
but they can get as .much as S25 a -fifth from all the local
boys who want to go out on a big, 'big, jag. On the society
page I read an article about Carol Lee. She is a famous
arti-st because she discovered how to mix stardust and moon
glow to produce a new kind of lipstick. Right below the
article about Carol Lee was a clipping about Iudy and
Loretta. lt seems that they tried their luck at 'Broadway and
now are starring in the new production of "Hamlet" or -better
known as "Call the Pi-gs Home You-All."
Ais I walked on dtowin the street I ran into my old friend
Stanlev Utter. Stanley told me that he 'had gone to Pluto to
study hair styling. il-le returned to Athens to out the hair of
the poor unfortunate Earth people who hadn't as yet adopted
the new hep cat hair style that closely resembles the after-
math of an Australian bushman-gorilla fight to the death.
Stanley also t-:id me "haf Clyde and Devon had m-oltvored over
to see ho-w the cats on Mercury were -making an easy living.
Devon discovered that the Merc. lboys hadn't yet heard of
pizza so the opened a pizza house on the hot side of Mercury
and hired Clyde as bouncer. Unfortunately, Clyde's weak-
ness for pizza put the whole works out of Ibusiness. Now the
boys have 'formed a corporation with Bernice who is selling
air conditioners to the .Merourian-s. l hear they are getting
quite wealthy because of the weather conditions on that
planet. Stanley asked me if I heard from Don O. I told him
Don was a wandering minstrel. At the present he is enter-
taining troops stationed on Rosconal, a new fplanet. Those
Rosconalions are really gone on 'him. He was voted the
most popular minstrel in space. Carol Ann has the Inter-
staler Hotel on Mars, which is famous for its Zorzel steaks
an-d Mars candy -bars. Creatures come from all over the
universe to eat 'her Zorzel steaks and the Maritians think the
candy bars are great.
As I walked on down the street, taking in wi-th amazement
the changes in Akron and all of my old friends in the past
40 years a messenger came running up to me with a terlef
gram from Neptune. -.

As I sorrowfully shoved the telegram into my pocket and
headed for my space ship, I heard a loud deafening roar and
ducked just in time to miss -getting hit by what appeared to
be a vagabond -spaceship. As this antiquated battered-up
ship landed, who should stagger out of it but Sharon and
Mary. As I heard earlier, these two 'had been missing for 30
years and -people assumed that they were dead. After a
short conversation I 'found out that the two girls had gone
out in search' of Sputnik antenn-as and ran out of fuel while
cruising around in outer space. If they hadn't drifted into
lower -Sldbbovia they would still be drifting around. Mary
and Sharon indicated that the time on board wasn't totally
wasted. 'Ilhey had developed a secret formula for a 'health
tonic. This new tonic was called "Old Wagonrwheelsu. I
would have liked to stay 'longer and talked and sampled
their infven-tion ibut the urgency of my telegram forced me to
,push pleasure aside and head for Neptune.
As I walked up to my space ship -wiho should be standing
there but Larry Powell. Aifter a brief talk I found out that
Larry wanted me to drop him off at Jupiter. He wanted to
take refuge there to escape paying alimony to four ex-wives
and judgments from 'four breach-of-promise suits. As Larry
and I boarded my space ship I took on-e last look at Akron
and thought over the .happy experiences of the last few days.
