L. M. CRAMER
--- THE DIXIE- -f-----w
One of the least heralded but vitally
important members of our educational
system is Mr. Cramer, our janitor. No
matter how efficient and well trained
the faculty or studious the scholars We
could not conduct the school without
some one to be responsible for the con-
dition of our building and We feel that
Mr. Cramer fills this position conscient-
iously and efficiently.
Van Buren has one of the most high-
ly eflicient and dependable transporta-
tion systems to be found. Much suc-
cess in the operation of this system is
due to Ross Moorhead, who has charge
of the maintenance of the trucks. Mr.
Moorhead has aided in the school in
many other ways and deserves much

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF TWENTY-EIGHT
fp' warm summer days of 1924 were slowly slipping away,
QJSSSJA tmogj . . . .
jygf-f giving place to mild autumn breezes and nature was clad in her
most gaudy gown when this history began.
--21553-934 There were thirty seven ambitious but green girls and
boys eager to absorb the knowledge of A. T. H. S. After the Freshman
reception we felt like full fledged High School Students.
As to our activities, five of our boys helped to win the County Foot-
ball championship. We also claimed some letter members in Basketball.
Our class was also represented in the orchestra. We entered the Inter
Class Contest altho' we did not capture first place we were not discour-
We took the dark row of seats in the large assembly room as 27
Sophomores. We were again represented on the athletic field having many
players on the teams. We were very proud this time to win first place
in the Inter Class Contest. "Deacon Dubbs" was given as our Sophomore
In '26 our enrollment decreased to twenty two but the Switzer
Brothers came from Forest and raised it to twenty four. We began our
activities not to blot the past but to make our record better. Athletics
was another strong factor in our activities. We do not wish to boast but
we won the Inter Class Contest for the second time. As a play we selected
"A Full House" which was rendered to a full house in the School Audi-
torium. Another big event was the Junior and Senior Banquet given in
honor of the Seniors of '27.
The class of '27 willed their seats along the windows to us altho'
their 17 were not enough for our 24 students we managed to get along
very nicely. At a banquet given for the Basketball squads our class had
the honor of furnishing nine athletes. We are looking forward to the
Inter Class Contest with the anticipation of victory. The play "Nothing
But The Truth" has been selected which we know will be a genuine
We hate to leave the halls of old A. T. H. S. but we feel that our days
dark and bright, that we spent there, will always remain a happy memory.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
fb-24 frm S I was going from my office on Wall St. New York to the club, the idea
lvl? H5 of visiting my former classmates struck me and I, as I knew of no way
of spending a more enjoyable vacation, hurried home, packed my grips,
and grabbed the first air liner for Ohio.
The plane on which I was riding was a very large one. On gaining admittance
to the pilots room, I recognized none other than Ralph Switzer at the controls.
We talked over school days for some time, and before I knew it we were in the
vicinity of Van Buren. Ralph slowed the plane so we might get a better view of
the city. We were only about three miles above the earth and the tall buildings made
flying difficult. We finally made a landing on top of a building, and were met there
by Howard Poe, who as mayor, presented us the key to the city. With him were
R. J. Ohl, an aged inventor, his wife, the former Miss Pearle Huffman, J. W. Ault,
president of the Van Buren Savings and Loan Co., whose assets were three billion
dollars, Earl Hosman, Chief of Police and Miss Hazel Norris, Chairman of the Cham-
ber of Commerce.
As I was accustomed to no larger cities than New York, I was quite lost in Van
Buren. I accepted Mr. Poe's invitation to dinner that evening after which we went
to the theatre. I noticed that the first act was entitled, "The Two Marys." As they
walked out upon the stage they were greeted by a tremendous applause and after they
had sung a couple popular melodies, I recognized them as Mary Mellott and Mary
Miller. The next day, after leaving the affairs of the town in the hands of his private
secretary, Miss Elsie Goodman, Howard took me to visit some public institutions such
as home for the feeble minded and the safety building. At the former we ran into
Mr. Stanley Huntington who had gone loco, trying to invent mustard fenders for hot
dogs. We stopped long enough at the jail to see two of the most notorious characters
of the underworld, Mr. Morris Switzer and his confederate, Miss Laura Overholt.
We then went to the hospital where we had the privilege of visiting the operating
room and watch Mr. Orlo Burrell, Chief Surgeon and Miss Kathryn Roberts, head nurse
awakening the brain of Orville Vermillion from hibernation in which it had been since
his youth. As we were going back up town I noticed a poster saying, "Vote for Blanche
Beeson for Governor," and learned afterwards that she was running against her sister
Evalyn for this office. In a vacant lot a medicine show was in progress and attracted
by the speakers voice we stopped long enough to hear Rudolph Fisher expounding on
the virtues of "Fishers Corn Cure." We went a block further down the street and
stopped to visit Miss Eleanore Poole who was proprietor of the town's largest pawn
shop. While in the shop, we listened to a lecture, by Georgia Burman on business
affairs over radio. She started her business career in the Commercial Club at the
Van Buren High School. While awaiting a taxi the strains of "Sweet Rosie O'Grady"
floated to my ear and seeking the source I spied Mary Ellen Gallant in a Salvation
Army uniform singing. Zelma Gorrell was accompanying her on the bass drum and
to this day I have never heard sweeter music.
Suddenly I felt a jolt and on waking up I discovered John's feet playing a tatoo
on my jaw for using more than half the bed.

CLA SS POEM
We the class of '28 are very proud to sav,
That we will have just 24, to graduate this May,
Some of you d0n't know them all, these girls and gentlemen,
I'll introduce them to you now, the very best I can.
There's Rudy-he's so tall, and Willard's kinda plump,
But we agree, in anything, they're not the kind to slump,
The girls all flock around him, that's Orville our class shiek,
And Robert Ohl is a radio fan, that simply can't be beat.
Next comes Pearl with a sunny smile, and Zelma with hair of brown,
Should you chance to meet these girls, a smile would greet you, not a frown
Blanche and Evalyn, our class twins, do without them we could not,
For when they play their violins, we're never ready for them to stop.
Well Georgia's kept her long, brown curls, and Elsie's a friend true blue,
'Ihey're just the very type of girls, that will appeal to you,
Mary Miller's our class beauty, who dresses so trim and neat,
And Mary Mellott is a pal to her, with a smile just as sweet.
Now Ralph is a football star, and Morris is very near it,
And when a score is to be made, these boys are there to do it,
There's Laura whose eyes are deepest brown, and Kathryn's eyes are blue,
These Pals are fine in basket ball, I agree--do you?
Eleanore's a studious person, with hair of raven hue,
And Hazel is so peppy, and full of talk clear through,
Skinnny's our basket ball manager, and Earl's a pretty good scout,
In work or play, whate're it is, these boys will help us out.
Bob Delo's a comical guy, while quiet Orlo is,
Once they start to do a thing, they get right down to bizz,
There's Mary Ellene, our blue eyed blonde, who fills us all with cheer,
And Howard the President of the class, his duty he does not fear.
All thru the long days we have toiled,
Many books and desks we have soiled,
In our long march to gain an education
How we have struggled for those high marks of elation.
Our books that deal with forgotten lore,
These we have studied o'er and o'er.
We have studied till nothing seems new.
But we must be ready to fight life's battle thru,
For now our schooldays are over, life is but commencing,
With stern Fate and good Fortune around us defencing
With our enthusiasm we may see the facts,
Where one is gifted another lacks.
And as the high school life we leave,
Some feel as a prisoner with reprieve,
While others are ready to enter life,
Willing to stand under grinding strife.
So let's' be cheerful with all we meet
For life is something we can't repeat.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Freshmen? Yes that's what we were but you could never tell it by
looking at us now.
We entered A. T. H. S., in the fall of 1925, as one of the largest classes
that had ever entered the High School. At the beginning of the year we
presented our class play "Aunt Billie from Texas." We were well repre-
sented in Athletics and other activities of the school. Although we did
not receive any firsts in the Inter Class Contest we did not feel that we
had entirely lost for we felt that this year was just a stepping stone to
success. The year passed very swiftly and we were soon shedding our
coats of green and then we became gay young Sophomores.
Although- in 1926 our class had decreased somewhat in number we
were still very prominent in the activities of the school. Several members
of the class had principle parts in the High School Operetta. We displayed
our talent in the dramatic field by presenting our class play "An Old
Fashioned Mother." This year we were more successful in the Inter
Class Contest. Dorotha Brinkman Won first on her vocal solo in the Inter-
Class Contest and third in the county contest. And then the last day of
school we were "Jolly J uniorsn.
In September 1927 we came to school with a resolution to live up to
our motto "Aim High." This seemed to give us a new inspiration. When
the football season opened eight of our boys entered the field. In Decem-
ber we presented our class play "The Path Across The Hills," which
showed that our class was well represented in the dramatic circle. Then
came the Basket Ball season and Oh! My! look at the Juniors. Vera
Powell, Dorothy Yeager, Leora Dilts, Florence Cline, and Hazel Deter
were the Junior girls that received first team letters. The boys that
received first team letters were Efil Copeland, David Neal, Harold Kuhl-
man, Robert Keelor, Albert Nebergall, and Leonard Silveus. Our class
also won the Basket Ball tournament which showed that A. T. H. S. will
be heard of again next year in Basket Ball. We are now looking forward
to the inter-class contest with the hope of winning. We have one more
short year until we will extend an affectionate farewell to A. T. H. S. and
pass on to higher institutions of learning.

SOPHOMORE CLASS PLAY

THE DIXIE .-.-.-.
In September of 1926, thirty-two Freshies walked into the gates of
Van Buren High School.
Although the class has dwindled down to twenty-two, we are still
an ambitious group, striving for the higher places.
The football season opened last fall with seven members of our class
ready for training: Daniel Cornwell, Earl Neuman, John Brandeberry,
Herald Neeland, George Pearson, Charles Swab, and Everett Fagan.
During the basketball season our class had two girls who played their
best in the county games: Lois Reamsnyder and Rosanna Huntington.
A few of the class are now training for track.
Our class play entitled "The Touchdown" was very much liked by
every one, which proves that we will be in the dramatic circle in the
The class is well represented in the Glee Club, and we are proud to
say that one member of the male quartet comes from our class.
Two members of our class have main parts in the coming operetta.
Others are in the chorus.
March twenty-eighth Lloyd Chavis who represented A. T. H. S. in
the Instrumental Contest at Mt. Cory received second place with his
selection on the saxaphone.
We have a few members participating in the inter-class contest.
Ada Williams has written the short story. Last year she tied for the
first place, and we hope she will win it this year. The other contestants
are: Earl Neuman, Orationg Lois Reamsnyder, Readingg Rosanna Hunt-
ington, Piano Solo. All are working hard.
There are only two short terms before us yet in which we will do
our best to live up ti our motto "EXcelsior."

FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY
Peep! Peep! out of our way! We, the Freshmen class of '28 have
advanced almost one milestone across the sea of A. T. H. S. and we
hope that in 1931 we shall reach harbor safe and sound upon life's way.
We have started our journey with thirty-three passengers which
were all initiated into high school membership a few weeks after school
When the football season opened we sent five representatives to the
field from the Freshman class, they were: Avery Trout, Don Swisher,
Darrell Teatsorth, Robert Trout, and Lawrence Zinser. Lawrence re-
ceived a first team letter at the end of the season.
Nine of the Freshmen girls went out for basketball, although none
made the first team, we hope the future promises us better rewards.
We are well represented in the orchestra with five members from
our class taking part: Donald DeRodes, Arthur Brinkman, Dwight
Burkam, Wilson Newcomer and Richard Sloop.
We have thirty Freshmen in the Glee Club and are proud to say
that our latin class with seventeen students is the largest that has ever
been enrolled at Van Buren.
We are now looking forward to the Inter Class contest hoping to
carry off high honors.
We feel that we have made a good beginning and are now looking
toward the future hoping to reach our goal successfully and we will, if
we cling to our motto "Never Turn Back."
Allen Township Centralized School is very fortunate in having an
able corps of experienced grade teachers, all of whom either have a life
certificate or are eligible for same within the current year.
The work is all departmentalized, each teacher doing a special line
The Junior High School presented the operetta "Miss Chrysanthe-
mum" on January 24 in a very pleasing manner.
The lower six grades will present "Spring Glow" in May. The
music is under the direction of Mrs. Chilcote, assisted by Miss Hanna,
Miss Huffman. hMiss Pore and -"Miss Falk.
The art department of the grades is also doing credible work under
the supervision of the several teachers.
We are indeed, fortunate in having a Practice Teaching Department
under the direction of the Bowling Green State Normal College in our
school. Mrs. Grace Sutton of Marion has charge of this. This brings
many teachers from different parts of the state into our school.
We have recently added Visual Education to our curriculum which
together with our other special departments makes Allen Township one
of the outstanding schools in the county.
We are hoping to make a good showing again at the coming County

Many students of our school are taking advantage of the instrumental
courses offered by Professors Schumacher and Ossman. A school orchestra
is an organization of which any school can feel proud over. Our orchestra
has furnished music for the Sophomore play "The Touchdownv and also
makes an annual appearance at the Farmers Institute.
Many of our players are members of the county orchestra. This
organization gives many concerts throughout the year and is well known

The Philomethian Literary Society has again marked up another
milestone in its journey. This makes the eighth year for our societies
in Van Buren and we know they shall continue on for this length of time
again. We have been rather fortunate this year and are looking forward
to the banquet at the end of the year.
Under the guidance of our sponsors, Mr. Clymer, Miss Bower and
Mr. Hamilton, we have tried to hold up and raise the former records of
our society and hope our followers shall always endeavor to do the same.

Our school was the first to offer a complete Commercial course in the
county. This is the second year it has been offered.
The Stenography Classes consist of fourteen members, nine Seniors
and five Juniors.
Our Senior Stenography Class entered the O. G. A. Contest and are
proud to say that six of them were presented with Certificates for the
Membership of Gregg Artists for their efforts.
Our Typewriting Class has an enrollment of seventeen members,
nine of whom are finishing our second year.
The Typists have been a great aid to the school. We are always ready
to do any typing desired by the faculty.
We are ready to step out into the business world, ready to take a posi-

Thirty-seven pupils of the Junior and Senior Classes were enrolled
in the Chemistry Class at the beginning of the school term. This was a
relatively large number of pupils to express their interest in this science.
Although our labratory equipment was somewhat limited, we were able
to carry out many interesting and helpful experiments under the direction
of our instructor, Mr. Lawrence.
The majority of the members passed through this year with a few
burns and minor explosions caused by too close contact with certain dan-

THE LATIN DEPARTMENT
"Omne initum est difiici1e"-"Every beginning is difficult". Any
Latin student, who has struggled to translate the books required for a four
year course, readily agrees with this slogan. No matter how difficult the
beginning, we find the end more helpful and interesting.
Our civilization is largely derived from the Romans, including our
laws, political customs, religion and even our every day customs. Few of
us realize the extent of our obligations to the Romans. Not only have we
taken over these laws but the very words by which we name them, are of

Home planning and Home management.
Hot lunches, sold at a low cost each day are prepared by an able cook

VOCA TIONAL AGRICULTURE
Vocational Agriculture is one of the newer phases of education in our
High School curriculum. This course has been introduced into our school
to enable the boys in the rural communities to have a vocational course
equivalent to the vocational courses given to his city brothers. This course
is the outgrowth of the need for more scientific, specific and practical
training for the farm boys. S
In this Work the boys carry an Agriculture course each year plus
a general shop course in the second year. In the class room they are taught
the fundamentals and advanced practices, supervised by their parents and
the Agricultural teacher. This business of actually doing that which has
been learned in the class room impresses it upon the boy's mind so that he
will remember it more easily.
There are three main purposes of the supervised farm practices or
project. They are mainly, to closer unite father and song to better teach
the boy how to make a living on the farm, to make some extra money for
the boy, and to teach him to keep records.
The success of any project depends primarily upon the interest of
the boy, that of his parents and that of the Agricultural teacher.
The course here at Van Buren is the oldest in Hancock county and
one of the oldest in the state of Ohio. Six teachers from four states having
taught the work here and the boys have had a wealth of variety which is
a great aid to the community as a whole.

Although few appearances have been made, the music rendered by the
Male Quartette has been well received.
As this is the second year for a High School Quartette they have
displayed their talent exceptionally well.
Two of the boys are Seniors and will leave this year. We hope their
places will be filled efliciently in the future.

A loud voice and a merry heart are always associated with a winning' spirit, at
least it holds true in Rudy's case. The way he could inject that spirit into the crowd
was one of the reasons we had a good team this year. Rudy is a master of gestulation.
.Xsk him sometime to demonstrate.
Sarah and Bernice were Rudy's two accomplices in noise making' and never failed
to win support for the team. Their snappy costums of Black and Gold won attention
and compliments everywhere.
Mary Mellott--Mary was a manager
who deserves credit for the way she kept
the girls supplied with the necessities of
basketball. And her work was appreciated
by the girls that were on the team. She
played a large part in helping' our team to
win the games.
Stanley Huntingrton+Skinney was an
efficient manager. Hard knocks caused
many bruises and sore muscles but our able
manager was always on the job to assist in
bettering' these conditions. A manager has
a tough life but Skinney proved he could do
the job and do it well.

you should think a bit on this question you would undoubtedly come to the conclusion
that loyal school spirit is necessary, therefore athletics in High School is necessary.
The aim of athletics in our High School is not only to stimulate school spirit but
also to provide the participants with a valuable training that cannot be had in their
class rooms. Good sportsmanship, quick judgement, physical development, determina-
tion and team work are some of the factors that are developed, which are essential in
character building. Another aim is to win as many games as possible, however, this
is not the sole purpose of the effort. Much is gained by losing a game that is not
involved in winning. A good loser deserves much credit. The loser then has not really
lost. Life is full of losses and athletic experiences will really help the individual to
meet these losses with a smile.
You will notice as you turn the pages on athletics that we are not champions this
year and yet we are far from being the lowest in the county league. The credit and
honor received by the school in athletics is due largely to the boys and girls who were
awarded letters for their untiring efforts during their high school career. Much credit
however is to be given to the subs for their support. All substitutes were not awarded
letters for their services and to these members especially, much credit is deserved.
We also take this opportunity to express our appreciation to our loyal spectators for
their following, through both victory and defeat.
The major part of the interest in athletics was due to the stimulation of our
persistent coach, Mr. Clymer. We feel that there has never been greater athletic
interest in the existance of our High School. The response to the various sports
throughout the year has been beyond expectations. The splendid arrangements and
success of our basket ball banquet was outstanding and the splendid sportsmanship
throughout the season was remarkable. All these factors were due to our coach's
interest and ability in athletics. We hope that Mr. Clymer will be with us another year.
The importance of physical training has won a place in our curriculum. This
training is required by all high school students, excepting those who take part in the
major sports. One fourth credit is allowed each semester for this work.
It is the aim of our director, Mr. Lawrence, to provide a training that involves
interest and proper physical exercise. And with the assistance of other faculty mem-
bers we feel that this training has been fittingly conducted throughout the year.
The space devoted to athletics in this Annual is intended to present to the reader
the various athletic sports of which we have entered during the year. We hope the
arrangement will meet your approval and help you to remember the athletic spirit

Foot ball! What heart doesn't quicken at that word? Especially in the fall when
the leaves are falling and the first cool snap is in the air.
Last fall, boys and girls of Van Buren, felt this urge to be out and following the
pigskin and each in their way responded. The boys to offer their services to the team,
and the girls to offer their spirit, for what is any team without spirit?
Some twenty-five boys came out for the team but as the first few days were de-
voted to reducing exercises that reduced each individual and also the number of indi-
viduals although not to any great extent.
At the end of two weeks practice the squad journeyed to Lima and engaged the
"South" warriors in battle. Van Buren did not lack fighting spirit as may be shown
by the 7 to 0 at the end of the first half, but size will tell, so at the end of the game
Van Buren was defeated.
On the following Friday Van Buren again sallied forth, this time to deadlock
Mt. Blanchard in an 0 to 0 game.
Again Friday afternoon rolled around and Van Buren engaged the enemy on
its own ground to hand Mt Cory a neat drubbing.
The next game was fought on foreign soil and Arlington defeated us in spite of
the best we could do.
Van Buren, although downed once, was not out. This fact was very decisively
demonstrated by the boys in the next game when they gave Arcadia the small or should
we say Very small end of the horn.
The next game was with Liberty. Oh how spirit did run high at that game. The
team fought well, no one will doubt that, for at the end of the first half the score
stood 7 to 0 Van Buren in the lead. Then in the last half, due to things that neither
team could control, the spirit ebbed and Liberty forged ahead to win.
McComb, the runners up to the champions, came to Van Buren with all the rooters
they could command or borrow. And it was apparent that they needed all the
support they could get. For it was not until near the end of the game that they scored
their single touch down which gave them their small margin of victory. Van Buren
points to this game with pride as being the hardest fought and cleanest game of the
At Rawson the team again engaged a formidable foe and again lost by a small
margin. The last game of the season and the last football game that some of the boys
would play for old Van Buren. So when- the team had taken the field against Vanlue
it was with a do or die spirit. And they did, completely outclassing Vanlue's best.
Thereby closing the season with honor, for it will be remembered that the county
champs only beat Vanlue by one point.

BOYS' BASKEI BALL
Basketball is a game of brain, speed and accuracy in which the Van
Buren boys proved their ability by winning over half their games this
season. Although along towards the middle of the season the team dropped
a few games, they made a wonderful comeback and finished their race

Rudy is a good man at center and we
will agree, one to be looked up to.
Davie is a real fioor coverer, that
coupled with a fighting spirit which
made him a hard nut for the opposing
teams to crack.
Emil, Captain elect for 1928-29 and
one of the teams main stays for this
season. He has an eye for the basket
that is hard to beat and should prove
a good leader for next year.
Mike has a slam-bang style of basket
ball play that brings home the bacon
and makes him one of the best guards
in the county.
Ault was a good defensive man. He
stopped many a would-be scorer, and
helped to win as much as any man on
the team. Ault, another persistent
player will be lost by graduation.

'Heavie' only a sophomore this year
but he's one of the best running

ketball player with a trick of making
fancy shots that look impossible and
still go through.
'Poe', was captain this year and a

himself into the fight just where he
was needed most.

to play his hardest and if he couldn't

"Fat", was short and snappy and had
his left hand flip that could get a
guard in a hurry.
"Bob", is one of the fastest men we
have and has the ability to get open
shots and make them count.
Morris was one of the hardest work-
ers and always the man with the
readiest smile. We have never known
him to be eliminated from competition
by personal contact.
Leonard, had the knack of picking
the ball out of thin air and dropping
it through the hoop. This little habit
of his was quite useful in the game.

The record of the girls' basketball team is interesting even though it

the girls are to be commended for their splendid work but also their coach
Roy Clymer and faculty advisor, Miss Bower.

This is Mr. Clymer's first year to
have charge of the Boys' and Girls'
Athletic activities of Van Buren
High School. He is very well exper-
ienced in athletics and proved his
ability by turning out valuable teams.
His services have been well apprec-
iated by the school, and we hope he
will be back again next year.
"Babe", Junior, did some fine floor
work and played a very good game as
forward. Her services next year will
help to make a winning team.
"Posey", a Sophomore, was another
of our valuable forwards Being small
and quick she covered her part of the
floor as forward very well.
"Peanuts", Senior, played hard for
the team. She was always willing to
fill her position as forward when
"Loie", Sophomore, quite successfully
filled her place as forward. Her co-
operative work with her fellow team
mates will add to her chances for be-
coming a good forward in the future.

"Snooks", Senior, played guard and
was "right there" whenever she was

"Ann", Junior, played forward. Not
many had the knack of putting 'em

On your mark! Get set! Bang! We're off! Off on our way to win again, to
keep untarnished the record set by the High School girls of Van Buren, one not held
by any other school in the county, that of winning every relay, ever since a meeting
of this kind has been held. We are proud of it and we're going to fight this year and
in the years to come to keep this record unmarred!
Last year an entirely different group of four girls ran the relay but just the same
we put Van Buren at the head and kept our colors, Orange and Black, flying high in
the air. Let's duplicate it at this year's meeting if there are only two letter girls left.
We can and we Will!
Besides the relay, the girls starred in other events, which are: 50-yard dash,
first and second, 100yard dash, first and secondg baseball throw, tied for second, high
jump we received no positions among the three highest. The entrants and positions
of relay teams which received first are: Lois Reamsnyder, firstg Helen Miller, second:
Flossie Norris, thirdg Pauline Bany, fourth. Now you see the girls helped roll up
the number of points to enable the High School to win first place.
With the aid of our coaches and with other girls out for practice we hope this
will force us to do our best in daily practice we hope to send the highest-ranking con-
testants to the Field Meet this year to keep the colors of dear old A. T. H. S. forever
on the top. So let's go girls-let's show 'em our stuff!
-------- ---------- THE DIXIE
For the last five years Van Buren has carried away the cups with first honors
at the County track meet. The season of 1927 ended very successfully. Van Buren
carried off two cups, one for first place in the High School and one for second place in
the schools as a whole, losing only to McComb by just a few points. Coach Clymer
and Captain Reichman should be given due credit for through them the winning teams
Last year's standing was very good.
One hundred yard dash, Clair Flangan, Van Buren, first.
Two hundred and twenty yard dash, Clair Flanagan, Van Buren, first.
One mile relay, Francis Ensign, Robert Keelor, Maxwell Reichman and Clair
Pole vault, Albert Nebergall, Van Buren, third.
Shot put, Rawson.
High jump, Mt. Cory.
Broad jump, Robert Keelor, secondg Clair Flanagan, third.
Van Buren was able to bring home two loving cups last season and she is going to
do her best this year.
Coach Clymer and Captain Ensign are going to do their utmost to have a winning
team this season. Although Robert Keelor nd Francis Ensign are the only letter men
back this year we are looking forward for Coach Clymer to work out a winning team
Come on fellows let's get out and support good old Van Buren, and when the
cheers are made let them be for Van Buren High School.
This is the first year our school has attempted to develop a real team. Mr.
Clymer, athletic director, is coaching.
Much enthusiasm is shown by all boys of the high school.
A county league has been organized in which five schools are entered. Van Buren
is considered as one of the outstanding teams of the conference. May our team be
