Shull for all their help and guidance. We especially want to thank Mrs. Shull for all her help in directing our class plays, and Mr. Dunnuck for all his guidance in help with college preparations. The Senior class officers performed their duties very efficiently and the Senior class extends its gratitude to them for their work. 19 BACHELOR FATHER Bentley Gregg is doing a very good job as bachelor father of his teen-age niece, Kelly. They differ at times, but over minor matters such as whether Kelly needs a new formal for the Senior Prom. And then real difficulties arise. Bent- ley is working hard to get bonds voted for a desperately needed new school. This is fine with Kelly. What makes her and her girlfriends blazing mad is that the Prom Committee (made up mostly of boys) has decided to shelve the Prom in favor of a wrangler party at a local dude ranch. Won ' t that be fun! The girls can wear blue jeans (instead of formals)and eat ribs! In reprisal the girls agree to a silent-treatment-strike against the boys. Any girl who reneges will be sent to Coven- try. But that doesn ' t bother Eileen. She ' d rather talk to boys than girls any day! Kelly leads the action to save the Prom and does it so well that shortly Uncle Bentlys ' bond issue is in danger of losing. Also Kelly resents her uncle ' s interest in Nan, an English teacher. She feels left out. So the teacher decides she and Bentley must avoid each other lest Kelly be further hurt. But the more serious aspects are more than balanced by the riotously funny scenes as the girls and boys fight the battle of Prom vs. Party. There is a great scene that follows the boys invitation of girls from a rival school to the party. Moose, a football hero, appears all set to have a " friendly understanding " and get his girl back. To Moose a friendly understanding means getting his own way. Otherwise he feels " goaded " and is likely to annihilate the opposition! 20 THE GHOUL FRIEND Is there really a monster in Lonesome Lake? Curious summer guests swarm all over the Lodge hoping to get a glimpse of it. Actually, Dan and his sister started the rumor to help business. The superstitious maid tell tales of a mad scientist who calls creatures from the deep, and of Marina, a strange girl in white " who " appears from the bottom of the lake. Dan is much amused at all these stories, but the laughter dies on his lips when the girl in white appeares at their door with a lily pod in her wet hair. Who is she? What does she mean when she says, " He called me! " ? Dan is strongly attracted to her but he has the chilling thought that she may not be " a " real, living girl. Suddenly the hoax is no longer funny. Because some guests are about to leave, Dan arranges to let them get a glimpse of a " monster " --Dan ' s good friend Bongo in a horror mask. At the same time, a press agent tries the same stunt for his own reasons. The two " mon- sters " meet and there is general panic. But all this time another " monster " is lurking nearby, watching and waiting to find Marina alone. Only the maid sees it, and nobody believes her. There is a tense scene as this monster reaches for Marina, knocks Dan unconscious, then drags him out. Now the young people are really terrified. Guests get ready to leave and it looks as if Dan ' s mother wil l have to sell the Lodge at a loss. A state trooper arrives to investigate. Then in a spine-tingling climax, the " monster " again threatens Marina, but this time Dan is ready and the mystery is solved. SENIOR CORDS Each year the Seniors are granted the privilege of painting Senior cords. On these cords the Seniors depict their classmates, teachers, activities and subjects in humorous cartoons. . I ' m sure the students of A .H.S. enjoy these cords as much as the Seniors themselves. ? l .r,r, - a A ' tiiniftiuinivTAni ' Wi + fir |8 nfBRYCHRisTnAs, il 111 11th Diane Adams, Roxy Arnold Vicky Baber, Phil Bengston David Bowen, Barbara Bradway Virginia Campbell Alan Clark, Rod Conner Vicki Cox, Mylin Cumberland Stan Davis, Mike Deardorff Darlene DeTurk Jeannie Eaton, Larry Farmer Mike Flohr, Tom Flohr Andy Freese, Joe French Hugh Funk Becky Gast, Jeff Gearhart Diana Goss, Barbara Hackworth Treassa Hall, Steve Henson Joyce Horn Don Hunter, Jerry Kreighbaum Nancy Lackey, Randy Lytle John Mahaska, John Mallott Barbara Manns Darrell Manns, Mike McFarland Bill Merley, Sue Miller Drusilla Morgan, Patty Murphy Linda Nichols Charlotte Nicodemus, John Oden Danny Owens, Sharon Parker Sherry Powell, Pat Price Doug Puterbaugh Bruce Reed, Calvin Reese Courtney Rhodes, Cathy Sanders Dennis Saner, Merl Shank Devon Smith Jane Smith, Janice Smith Glen Smith, Kathy Sriver Darwin Stafford, Dave Swick Pam Swope Luana Teel, Pat Tillman Lynne Utter, Nancy Vanlue Joe Walters, Ken Weaver Sandra Weber John Weida, Darlene Whetstone Gary Whittenberger, Steve Whittenberger Bobby Wimer, Jim Worther Susan Yarian Sherry Hohman " T- WtfAifc 10th Lois Allen, Mary Alvey Ronnie Arnett, Connie Ault Virginia Baumgartner, Lois Bengston Mike Bowers Betsy Brown, Jim Burkhardt Diana Bussard, Susan Coplen Bill Craig, Bob Craig Sue Crall Bill Davis, Dotty Derring Chuck Drudge, Gary Groninger Mike Hall, Steve Hammond Danny Harper Sharon Harrold, Larry Hartman Joyce Hatfield, Richard Hiers Dave Henson, Jacquie Hoffman Bruce Hogue Janet Hohman, Tom Hopkins Jennie Hudson, Bill Isley Kenneth Isley, Jannelle Jefferies Gloria Kamp Joyce Kroft, Mike Lackey Sid Lewis, Cathy Love Jeff McFarland , Kay Meredith Dick Moore Adria Morgan, Kenny Moudy Denny Opple, Jon Parker Larry Parker, Cludia Patterson Phil Paxton M I t nITCT W? % ' fZr f H b J aromas 4wf -. - S wiL® V Mike Phebus, Richard Piper Pam Rager, David Reed Angela Riley, David Randall Sara Roberts Diana Robinson, Terry Runkle Steve Sausaman, Randy Schipper Charles Shank, Mary Sriver Suzie Slaybaugh Dennis Spice, David Swick Judy Swihart, Denny Teel Barry Thompson, Gary Tillman Jim Weaver Duane Wagner, Mark Wildermuth Mike Wise, Bonita Woolley 9th ' aft v ;r H Linda Adams, Jacob Baker Danny Backus, Carol Bowen Alan Bowman, Nancy Buckheister Randy Burns Vicki Carpenter, Cindy Clymer Ted Cox, Brenda Cumberland Steve Cumberland, Doug Davis Joe Day Kerry Deardorff, Arnold Doering Jim Doud, Barbara Eaton Steve Ellis, Rachal Fisher Mark Flohr Sandy Flohr, David French Gary Funk, John Gray Dan Groninger, Marsha Grubb Kathy Harrold Gary Harshman, Patsy Hill Art Horn, Nancy Huntley Tom Huntley, Shirley Hunter Sue Isley Marion Kendall, Steve Lane Linda Lewis, Kim Lewis Joyce Maby, Bill Mahoney Connie Manns Dewight Manns, Diane Manns Frank Marsh, Sara McCloughan Marsha McFarland, Mack Miller Allison Morgan Jennie Murphy, Terry Murphy Marty Nees, Sandy Nicodemus Marilyn Overlander, John Parker Donna Piper Bob Randall, Wendell Randall Carol Reed, Kathie Robinson Barbara Roff, Pete Sanders Tom Sayger Andy Shewman, Virginia Shriver Marlyn Smith, Lee Sterk Larry Sutton, Linda Swartz Frankie Swope Penny Swope, Larry Swihart Peggy Utter, Debbie Walters Colleen Whittenberger, Martha Whittenberger fsmmnn . v i iii i tit W[% 29 CLASS OFFICERS Being class president is a big responsibility and these people have shown themselves very capable of their office. The vice president of each class is one of the class representatives in the student council. This office is very important and these people are very efficient. Keeping the minutes and handling the class corres pondence is the responsibility of these secretaries. The responsibility of keeping the books balanced is up to these class treasurers . 30 ORGANIZATIONS - 0 t3 All high school girls have the privilege of joining this organization which builds character and promotes good will towards others. The main project of the SSS this year was the adoption of a Korean orphan. Through this organization, our boys have become fine models of Christian character, and have created high stan- dards for the entire school. I ft ri fl r l f I S a - - I 1 Through these class representa- tives the student body is connected with school government and affairs. The officers of the student council were elected by the student body and each officer carried out his duties very efficiently. HjJSWL Honesty, leadership and a high scholastic average are a few of the qualifications these people must achieve to become members of this state wide organization. This was the first full year for Akron ' s National Honor Society and under the direction of Mrs. Waechter they hope to con- tinue this fine organization. I t t I S» " M» - »r Both Miss Blue and the students have found our librarians very helpful when using the library. 33 Future Teachers of America is another newly formed club at A.H.S. The members of this organization have expressed a desire to become teachers and together they discover more about the teaching profession. With the leadership of Mr. Fike these students have learned to operate our pro- jectors and aid the faculty in the showing of films. The members of the Driver ' s Club have helped to make student driving a more safer and convenient part of our school. 34 Mr. Bynum assists these people in answering the numerous questions that puzzle them about science. Whether it be star watching or per- forming an experiment the members of the Science Club are all glad that such a club was formed. The policy for earning athletic awards was set up by the Letterman ' s Club and each member of this organiza- tion has already earned a varsity letter. I II 1 1 | — The Dramatic Club was formed only this year and although its mem- bership is small it is expected to in- crease within the coming years. 35 Cathy has given her time unselfishly in trying to make this year ' s annual one of the best. Many headaches have developed for her, but all dead- lines were met, and the final copy has been printed. For this book of memories, the student body says thanks so much. The Staff Gary and Kathy will be next year ' s editors and they have tried to work with Cathy this year in order to be prepared for next year. Mr. Hartong gave freely of his time in order to produce the annual. We are all very appreciative of all Mr. Hartong has helped us with. The final copies of the annual were sent in under the pen of these girls. A mistake could mean beginning again, but the pages were finished and at last the work was complete. Because of his interest in photography Dana worked hard to get good snapshots for the annual. His fine work and efforts are greatly appreciated. Bill ' s help in putting together the sports section was really appreciated. His keen interest and will- ingness to work helped to produce our annual. Because of their fine art abilities Pam and Wanda did an excellent job in handling all the art work for this year ' s annual. The financial end of the annual was handled by Kathy with Mike acting as her assistant. Kathy carefully kept the books in balance and proved her- self to be very efficient. Alberta, Mgr. , Buni, Carolyn, Karen, Arnold The Sales department of the annual consisted of these students whose duties were to promote and make sales for the yearbook. 37 The girls contributed a lot of time and work in typing for the annual. Theirs was not an easy job and with- out their help the annual could not have been completed. The Aero was edited this year by Carol Baumgartner who worked with the paper ' s sponsor, Mr. Mathias, and together they published the Aero for the entertainment of the students. R O The members of the Aero Staff do the typing and writing for the school paper. Each six weeks they compile the news events of interest and prepare a satisfactory paper. 38 HOMECOMING One of the biggest events of the year is the Homecoming and the crowning of the King and Queen. The Sunshine Society sponsors this event and donates the proceeds to the Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. Each class selects a king and queen candidate to represent their class for the king and queen contest. The candidates are then voted on by penny votes. A theme is chosen each year and the classes follow this theme in the building of their floats. This year the senior class candidates, Wanda Hiers and Bill Leininger, were chosen as Homecoming King and Queen and the Sophomore ' s fl oat won the float contest.

The pep block supported the team throughout the entire season and always displayed fine sportsmanship. Thanks again Mr. Graham. AKRON ALL THE WAY HEY! EBSEB Shown here are the freshmen cheerleaders for this year. They were inexperienced in high school cheering, but proved that practice is valuable as experience. These JV girls learned many new yells and showed a lot of spirit while cheering for the Junior Varsity ball team. A.H.S. can well be proud of these varsity cheerleaders. The trophy they won at IU is a small reward for the many hours they spent perfecting yells. FLYERS v-v FOR VICTORY VAR-VAR FOR VARSITY 44 BASKETBALL J jJF, The students of A.H.S. were very proud of their Flyers when they played in the final game of the County Tourney, and we now proudly display the runner-up ball in our trophy case. Throughout the season the Flyers always displayed good sportsmanship and courtesy as a team. The members of this basketball squad added another trophy to our trophy case by being the winners of a four- way tourney at Syracuse. Their coach, Mr. Dunnuck, worked many hours with these boys and prepared them for future varsity players. Both Mr. Henson and Mr. Dunnuck worked hard to help make our basketball season a successful one. They spent many hours at school practicing with their squads to iron out the rough spots and to add some new plays. The members of their teams and the students of A.H.S. would like to thank these men for all they have done for our school. Richard, Dennis, Randy Being a Student Manager means giving freely of your time, and that is just what these boys have done. They trans- port the balls, first aid items and other supplies to all the away games, and they are always at the side of the coach and team to help in any way. The members of this Freshman team learned a lot about basketball in their season and this knowledge will help them later on in high school. These boys anxiously await spring so that track season can begin again. Their pep and enthusiasm has proved to be a great asset to our track team. 47 BASEBALL Baseball is the good old American sport and these boys seem to enjoy playing the game as much as the last genera- tion did. We are proud of the record of our baseball team and we hope that with the new season coming that they will do just as well. 48 The G.A .A . girls are proud of their track team for placing first in a track meet and winning a large trophy. Besides track, Mrs. Davis also provides the girls with badminton, tumbling, basketball, Softball and experience on the trampo- line. GAA m A k fW L t «i c Bf Bfi Br HhV k fi2tj 3i . . -i i MUSIC BAND This year the band presented colorful marching snows at many of our basketball games, performed seasonal concerts, and attended contest, thus concluding a successful year through the hard work of the band members and their able director, Mr. Beaver. During the summer months our band participated in many parades including the Akron 4th of July, the Auburn fair, Memorial Day parade, North Webster Mermaid festival and the Kewanna Strawberry festival. AHS is very proud of the fine showings our band always has in these parades. This year the choruses went on tour and you can be sure that the mixed chorus was a big success with our neighbor- ing schools . CHORUSES Audiences are always pleased in hearing boys sing. Our boys chorus is a treat to listen to. The girls at AHS are very proud of their chorus and they enjoy singing a wide variety of songs. 53 J ' ■ ' The drum major and twirlers led the band in its marching shows at basketball games and in the many parades in which the band participated. The snappy tunes of our pep band increases our school spirit at pep sessions and basketball games. The " soft and sweet " and sometimes " swinging " dance tempos of our newly formed dance band are enjoyed by many. W ith capable hands the pianists have acco mpan- ied the choruses at all their performances. The individual talents of these people are an asset to a fine music depart- ment. TPttppoptlflf . These girls enjoy singing toget- her and their music is de- lightful to the ear. BEAVER DAM ' tr p " r " ' ■ MRS. LUCILLE BEEHLER R. R. 3, Rochester, Indiana, Ball State, 22, English, Arithmetic.

These 6th grade officers are very capable of carrying out the duties of their offices. u l Mr. Creighton practiced many hours with these boys to help them develope good basketball skills. Beaver Dam is proud of their teams and the good sportsmanship they displayed throughout the year. Baseball is the good old American sport and these boys enjoy playing as a team.
