Nineteen hundred and twenty--two, lVe were Sophomores, as every one knew, No drowsy drones in this class of ours For we were husp all the hours, The other classes saw us go round. And closely watched us with a frown YVe left them without a 'lLaurel" to their crown. lt was on the twenty-fifth of May' That the Sophomores finished their relay. Fourth of September-the beginning day- XVe took up our books, and left our play, 'Twas the only chance to make our grades, The instructors were just as strong as their will. And always kept the assembly room still. One class was just as strong as the restg But they fell before our strong agress And thus we soon won out. The fifteenth of May' in twenty-five The Senior class will take a drive, Now lower classmen get out of the way Here comes the Senior class for the last' relay.

Y, The Heralding of the Seniors The sun was radiantly smiling upon Van Buren, as I was busily recalling old times with my friend on the veranda. Suddenly she called my attention to the names of Fern Thomas and Culver Gorsuch, who had recently introduced a bill on the reg' ulation of traffic for airplanes. Later our conversation drifted to the activities of the Van Buren school. Georgia was successfully teaching vocal music. Marian, a lonely bachelor, had established a record as a music teacher, Margaret VVerner was an efficient Smith Hughes Home Economic teacher. Hattie was a competent suc- cessor of Miss Baker as a teacher of foreign languages, while Kenneth Hartman was progressing in the ministry at the United Brethren church in Van Buren. "VVe must go to Findlay next VVednesday, all day, and attend the Redpath Chau- tauqua and hear our old friend. Kenneth Moorehead sing in the forenoon, then we must go to the 'Jiffy Beauty Parlor,' and chat with the managers, Jessie and Cathryn Koons," exclaimed my friend. "Indeed, we must visit them, and also I received fl letter from my old pal, Kathryn Huntington, who has succeeded Mary Pickford in Hollywood, California, and, by the way, did Ruth and Alice become nurses?" "Yes, and very successful ones, too," she said. "Did you know Deyous was a dancing instructor at Findlay, and Donald is taking the place of his uncle, Doctor Hartman ?" "Really," was my answer, "and, Vernard an author, VVhere is Lucille?" "Oh, Lucille is an elocution teacher at Detroit, and Vernard's book of 'Onward To Success,' is popular. You know that was our class motto. Also my friend Evelyn is a teacher in North Baltimore." VVe planned a trip for the afternoon. As it was getting rather late, we started her stubborn airplane and finally flew towards the home of Aura, where we were introduced to her husband, and were cordially entertained by them. She informed us that Virgil was a Civil Service detective, while Noah was a strict Mayor of McComb. "Gertrude is now living in Michigan, and is prospering on a farm," she added. My friend then picked up the Morning Republican and showed me the cartoon of the "Gumps," andto my surprise the name of LeRoy Trout was signed to it. "VVhere is our sponsor, Mr, Pugh," I demanded. "Haven't you heard?" exclaimed Aura. "He is the State Superintendent and Constance is his faithful private Secretary." Vi'e continued our visit, then my friend and 1 flew back home discussing happy school days. OUX' "ARE VVE PROUD OF OUR CLASS?"

W . - - , ... .-...,., .., . ...... . . . , - - -.H+ History of the Junior Class VVhen two years ago last September, we, as the class of '26, entered A, T. H. S., we were conspicuous in our verdancy. However at the combined initiation and reception given us by the upperclassmen, a great deal of the greenness was worn off. An excellent standard was set early in our career, both in class work and in athletics. Our boys established a reputation for the class by the ability which they displayed on the football field, four of them obtaining first team letters through their valliant efforts. The high school chorus could not possibly have been a success without us. even though our voices were instrumental in the production of more tone than tune. The orchestra, likewise. received a goodly percent of its players from the Fresh- man class. Although we were unable to win the interclass contest, the reading from our class placed first and represented our school in the county oratorical contest. However we carried off the honors at the interclass track meet, and many from the Freshman class participated in the annual Field Day at Findlay. Then came the last day of school and we were no longer Freshmen, but Sophomores. Our Sophomore year had in store for us even greater honors than the previous one had held. On the gridiron our boys surpassed all past records. Five members of the girls basketball team came from the Sophomore class. lvloreover, five of our boys were awarded first team basketball letters. XVe ran the Seniors a close race for the interclass contest cup, but finally decided to be content with second place. Again our class was well represented at the Field Meet. The termination of our second year found us with still greater ambitions for the year that was to come. At the close of our much deserved vacation, we gathered again in the glorious halls of our dear old A. T. H. S. In addition to living up to the reputation we had created for ourselves in athletics, we have shown our remarkable dramatic ability in the presentation of the class play entitled l'Am I lntruding?y' which was given February 12, 1925. TVith careful preparation we were able this year to win the interclass contest, three of our participants placing Hrst and two second. Plans are now being made for the banquet which we intend to give soon in honor of the Seniors. Although our achievements have been many, and our successes have been marked, still what we have done is as nothing compared with what we hope to do, so look out for us next year. --MARTHA REED 4...-f Y . 71, .,:.,.,.,..-----. - 1 -r s , , a , ,irq Seventeen 40... - f -W 4.

Since we were duly initiated into high school, we have taken part in different school activities. A number of our boys have given the best of their ability in helping the football team win the county championshipg several entered basketball, baseball and track. Few of the girls played basketball and only one proved efficient. But basketball was not the end of our sporting career, for twice as many practiced track. Many of our members have taken advantage of the opportunities offered in elocution and music during the Freshman and Sophomore years. As a result, our class is well represented in the school orchestra of which every one is proud. VVe all looked forward to the Interclass Contest in the hope of winning. No, we did not win. although the Contestants did their best. Gershom Poole won first place on his oration and represented our school in the county oratorical contest. Our class has greatly decreased in number, but has increased in knowledge. Some day we will be Seniors. Time is rapidly Flying. Watch our class Hy too! Nut to destruction, but to the seats by the window that we may take our turn looking into the outdoor world.

VVe are called Fresbies and greenies, but we don't mind, for do not green trees and green grass glow taster than old. dry. decayed matter? lVe came into High School in September. as a class of thirty-seven pupils. During the year four have moved from the district or discontinued their education while only one other has been enrolled to take their places, leaving thirty-four prospective Sophomores. At the annual Freshman reception which was held in September in the school auditorium. we were initiated and welcomed into High School to take up our share of the responsibilities of work andpleasure, which make High School life. 'When the Football season opened we sent tive boys to the field: YVilliard Ault, Howa tl Poe. Robert Delo, Kenneth Kxihlman and Paul Huffman. lfach one made a good showing and helped to close the season as County Champions. 'l'hrce of our girls played basketball: Laura Uverholt, Iileanore Poole, and Lt-ota Overholt. Our class has tive violinists and one cornetist in the orchestra. Wie are also well represented in the Glee Clubs. At the interclass contest which is always a great event to each class. the Fresh- man made a record of which we are justly proud. lfleanore Poole won second with her readingg Robert Delo, second with a cornet solog Pearl Huffman. second with her short storyg and Howard. Poe, third with his oration. Wie hope in the coming three years to furnish many athletic stars and winners in all activities of High School life, and to make a record in class work of which we may all be proudg for that is the aim of all High School work, because.

B. OUR FOOTBALL TEAM h For years Van Buren has prayed for a football championship, and at last gained it by sheer force of will, and the untiring eltorts of Coach Chronic, But, what about next year? just because you will have a light team, is that any reason why the old school spirit cannot go on? You football men of next year, just grit your teeth, and tear into it all the harder. for practice makes perfect. and four years from now, we are expecting another championship. TO THE FUTURE STUDENTS OF V. B. VVe have new desks and seats in our schoolroom. l ask you, is it right to leave your mark of character on those desks in the form of carved images and initials? l say it is not. Those carvings may give your papers certain marks of distinction, but it surely does not add manliness. nor womanliness to the one who carved them there. OUR FACULTY VVe have one of the best High School faculties in the history of the school. Have their untiring efforts and good intentions been appreciated by us, at all times?

Listen! The Allen Township Football Boys, under their able coach Chronic, have for the first time in the history of our school, won the honor of county champs. They allowed only one county team to cross their line and that was the sturdy Liberty bunch. They held Lima South Hi to a score of 19-2 and Bluffton 9-6. This is llflr. Chronicls first year of coaching our football boys. His splendid coaching was made possible by the training which he received at' the O. S. U. last summer. Another reason for our splendid team, only four letter men were lost and their positions were filled by able and eager subs. Although the opening of the season was not one of victory for our squad. it did not discourage them. Their first game was with Lima South Hi. They were defeated. Then they niet Bluffton's squad whom they were able to hold to one touch-down even though they were defeated. Then they opened the county season by defeating Vanlue 19-0. From then on it was victory for our squad except with Liberty. They finished their season on top, the reward which they well earned. Beginning with the ends we have K. Hartman and Space. who were always in their place at the right time. This year ends Hartman's brilliant career. His place will be hard to be equally filled next year. Then our faithful tackles, who were always on their job, are Leroy Trout and Spitler. Both boys will graduate this year. The guards, Delo, Dailey and H. Trout. together with Dove at center formed an unbreakable line. Dailey and Dove both leave the team this year. In the back field we hav Ceapt. Gorsuch as quarter back, Abbott as full back. lwoorhead with Sub Huffman at left half. Franks and Sub Reichman as right half. These boys have played a splendid game of ball this year. Abbott and Franks crossed the goal many times, due to their plunging and spectacular open-field running. Out of our swift back field this year will be taken Capt. Gorsuch, Abbott and lVIoorhead, who are Seniors. Franks and Reichman will be here next year to make the team. The boys have chosen as their Captain for next year Dallas Space, who has well earned the position by his faithful playing. lfVe are sure that he will prove a successful leader. -FERN 'l'HoxiAs .i -WI ryfgim -N., li 11-5' ge- - viii Lf-5,1 "F 1.55 -:P r mg' C 'K-1.74 Fri- 5 4. - -- .- .:--- -.. ----f-- - -- - ,F fwfnty six LEN TOWNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL-1925 4- -Y -f f---1- Front row, left to right: Dailey, lit-Lung, fm'w:1i'rls: Drive, vents-Vg Trout, Lzuiirdg Elder, center.

Boys Basketball The boys basketball team, directed by their able coach, Chronic, have furnished some stiff opposition for the other teams of the county. They showed remarkable ability and sportsmanship throughout the entire season. Only three places were to be filled when they began. but they were well filled from the many new players. The team this year. was nearly all seniors and they will be much missed next year. llove. llelong. Elder or Abbott at center did their part to get the tip-off and get the hall in the hands of their team mates. Capt. Trout, Hartman. Dailey and Burrell at forwards rolled up the scores by their baskets. Gorsuch and Nloorhead did splendid work in keeping the ball out of the hands of the opponents. All of this it-am but llelong and Eltler will graduate this year. Their first game of the season was with lVIeComb. whom they easily defeated 5--l--l. Next the fast Arcadia team defeated them by a score of 22-13. They downed the Alumni l2-lo. ln the next game the boys showed their fine fighting spirit and held Arlington to a score of lb-l-l. Although they were defeated they kept on. The Vanlue game was a hard one but they all worked together and won 8-l3. Then the fast Liberty gang defeated our boys 23-l7, Next in a hard. fast game, we held Portge 15-1-l. YVith victory still in their hearts they defeated lWt. Cory 15-6. Then Rawson turned the tables by defeating them Z6-18. Next came the tournament in which they took second place. They beat the St. Nlichael boys 27-123 Vanlue 13-83 Rawson 8-73 but lost to Arcadia in the finals only by three points. 11-8. Then we went to Mit. Blanchard and defeated them 5-35. Last they defeated North Baltimore ZZ-l-l-.

ALLEN TOIVNSHIP CENTRALIZED SCHOOL-19 -1----. . . . -1. Girls Basketball The record of the Girls' Basketball team is interesting even though it is not entirely successful. Coach Chronic is to- be given much credit for the training which he gave the team. VVe started with the same team of last year with the exception of two subs who graduated and several Freshmen who carrie to join us. All of the girls are to be commended for the fine, clean spirit of sportsmanship which they showed throughout the year. Our girls were able to put up a hard struggle, but. not by rough playing, Although we received some hard humps we never sought to get revenge, but took it willingly. Only two girls will leave this year, both centers Capt. Thomas and Huffman. But their places will be well filled next year. Thomas and Huffman played fine team work in the center and succeeded in making many successful passes. Locey. Abbott and Fisher stopped the ball many times from going in the opponent's basket. Reed, Poe and Lewis showed fine pass work and put many a ball through the basket to roll up our score. Our first game was with lWcComb. Although we were not used to such a large Hoor we beat them l3-5 in a clean, hard fought game. Next we met Arcadia's and the score did her part the Alumni, 19-7. The fast team. This game was very uncertain until the final whistle blew, was 9-7 in our favor. The girls all showed fine playing spirit and each in the rough, hard struggle. During the Christmas vacation we met many of whom we used to play with. XVe easily defeated these girls. next game with Arlington was a complete victory for Van Buren. The visiting team did not get a basket. Their lone point was made by a foul. The score was 21-l. At Vanlue the girls were easily held to a score of 18-4. Next we met the fast Liberty Hi team who carried the victory, not easily won, by a score of 5-2-I-. The Van Buren team easily won over Portage 2-1--5, even though their captain was unable to play with them. Ar Mt. Cory we were defeated 6-8. The team, however, deserves credit for playing a hard game. The score at the half was 6-2 in our favor. Cory's team. however, came up in the last half and won by two baskets. The next game at Rawson was also a defeat for us. They won l8-6, but our spirits did not fall, At the tournament in a hard fought game, we downed Arcadia 4-5, but lost to McComb l3-5, thus we were barred from the finals. VVe went to Mt. Blanchard only to be defeated in a fast game. 7-9. Owing to the fact that our best forward was unable to play. the team was under some handicap. but we made the best of it. The last was the game with North Baltimore, whom we easily defeated, 27-4. Thus we closed our basketball season, which we think has not been altogether a failure. The girls have decided not to elect a permanent captain, but' each week give it to the girl who has faithfully worked the hardest. This will create more interest and we who will not be with them next year surely wish them real success. -FERN TuoMAs Y 'T 4 I 1 ww w re' -2---. . .f .W - Y. l -, -fag - .. . , 4.

The track season ot 24 was a successful one for both boys and girls of Van L5 They took first place by a high score in the county track meet, The school as a whole also took first place, Coach Chronic put forth every effort to produce 21 ' ' coin- Wirlflilltf team. The boys went to the Ada track meet and showed fine abil-ity peting with other teams. Both teams this year are showing real interest and will try to carry off honors again. llASl'Cl:lALli first Late in the season of 1924 a baseball team was orfranized. No regular coach had charge of the team, however, and it did not develop as it should. XVe played the Arcadia "Champs" trice and were defeated both times, T-4 and 4-2. The Alumni. however, was defeated easily. Mygrant did excellently under the conditions which he had to pitch under.

VERNARIJ DAILEY TRACK MEET XYITH NORTH l'iAljl'lMORE A very nice meet was held with North Baltimore on April 21, 1925.

Each year notes a large increase in the number of vocational Agricultural Departments throughout the state. With a modest beginning in 1916, the number of departments have increased to 153, with a large number of schools on the waiting list. These facts also vouch for the value and popularity of vocational agricultural education for rural communities. This department was the first to be established in Hancock County, and is also one of the pioneer departments in the state, being founded in 1918-19. Since that time five more departments ,having been introduced in the County and no doubt more will follow in the near future. The activities of the vocational departments are numerous and varied. The practical and scientific study of the many different phases of farming such as animal husbandry, farm engineering, farm management and crops are studied in the class room. In addition to this activities are extended into the community through projects, club Work, short' courses, and in many other ways. We now have enrolled -I-2 boys in the department, which makes the fourth largest in the state, and considering the size of the school this is remarkable. Forty three ALLEN TOPVNSHIP CENTRJLIZED SCHOOL-1925 -1--1: -f --W - ff -f f -1- Vocational Home Economics This is one of titty schools in the state of Ohio offering a course in Vocational Home lfconomics to its girls. lt was iiist introduced in the school in 1922 with Miss Helen Longnian as instructor. During this time, the class has increased to its present number of forty-two. The Home Economics work is organized so as to meet the need of training girls for practical efficiency in the home. Duiing the school year work is given in cooking, sewing, dietetics, child care, sanitation, and a general course in home nursing. Hot lunches. sold at :1 minimum cost, are obtainable each day, being prepared by an able cook and assisted by the Home Ifconomics girls. Besides these things, practical projects are carried out at home during the school year and summer months by the girls. These may include such projects as planning and preparing the family meal, baking, sewing and cleaning. All who complete the three year course in Home Economics will feel that their time has been well spent and their effort much worth while. -EVELYN ARCH ER -ALICE ' VVITIIROW' 'DC' iii:-i , 1 -- ---:f:f:4 - 1 .-:-f-.-1 , - ------H ---,-- 1 4. l"orty-four i LEN TOPVNSHIP CENTRJLIZED SCHOOL--1925 4- ,,.- , ,,,, , ,,,,,,, --: - , , ----- 1 - .

The American-First National Bank FINDLAY, oHio WRONG PROGRESSIVE SAFE PROGRESS Since the beginning of our banking career, We have watched rural education graduate from the little red one roomed school house by the side of the road to the imposing modern, Well- equipped township schools of today. Then, too, We have Watched business grad- uate from the high stool, pen scratching stage into the swift-moving, machine-like system of today. The part the Buckeye - Commercial has played in this march of progress, We modestly leave for other lips to acclaim-perhaps to some of our first customers, who still Bank at The Buckeye-Commercial. But for the part that the Buckeye's good customers and friends have played in the trans- formation of a struggling little Bank into the immense institution of today, We will ever be pro- foundly grateful.
