CRAMER ROSS MOORHEAD --- 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 credit. -l-1928---- .5 I It ,Qs ------ 4 1-f Q!!

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- aged. 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 play. 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 success. 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. --Stanley Huntington -Laura Overholt ----1928 .-. THE DIXIE.-.-.J-. 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. -Robert Delo 1928 :Ib """-f'--HSEFQQF , -' nee." THE DIXIE C LA SS WILL We the Senior Class of Van Buren High School 1928 will present the lower clatsmen with the following wills. First, we present to the Junior Class our methods of concentration and good behavior in class and the desks near the windows. To the Sophomore Class we bequeath our good conduct, grades and graceful manners. To the Freshmen Class we will our ability to stick to our task, however diHi- cult it may be until it is completed.

Earl Hosman bequeaths his attentiveness in class to Lloyd Chavis. Mary Ellen Gallant bequeaths her spunk to Vesta Lindenman. Stanley Huntington bequeaths his chewing gum to Francis Ensign.

As we are about to leave you we will to our lower classmen especially of '29 all our desks, powder puffs, chewing gum, candy paper, cough drops, hairnets, dates, films, paper wads, rubbers, ticket stubs, -old magazines and especially our school books. We hope you may prosper by all these generous wills. -Zelma Gorrell -Pearl Huffman Y. -W 1928-.. -..M 5 -11' NF TTIE DIXIE 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. -Mary Ellen Gallant -Ralph Switzer 1928 .-.-.-.-.-.f'm.H.-.P.-l.-a'.-.-i.f-.-.1.r'.-.-u-.'-'- .-.-.-.-rr.-:-.-rf:-ru--.-:-.-.-.-.N JUNIOR CLASS Top row, left to right: Cloyce Wolfe, Leonard Silveus, Gaylord Rader, Robert Keelor, Harold Kuhlman, David Neal, Francis Ensign, and Richard Trout.

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. -Vesta Lindenman --1928t-- r.-.-l.-.-.-.-.-o-.-.-.-.-.-a-c-.-.-l.-.-.-.-.-.-.

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 future. 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." -Flossie Norris ---1928l- ,-,,-,-, -.-.-.-.-.n..-.-. .-.-.-.-.-.-.-.n.n.-u.-.-.-.-.-.H-m.-.-.-.--m FRESHMEN CLASS Top row: Woodrow Zeigler, Thelma Dayringer, Robert Barnhouse, Prudence Poole, Donald DeRodes, Kathleen Abbott, George Yeager Bernice Dufiield, Dwight Burkam, Mildred Billingsly, Irene Vermillion Arthur Brinkman.

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 began. 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." -Kathleen Abbott 1928 ,.,.--r TTTEQDIXIE GRADE NEWS 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 of work. 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 Track Meet.

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 as a splendid concert organization throughout the county and surround- ing counties.

COMMERCIAL CLUB 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- tion in an office. We owe our accomplishments to our instructor, Mr. Law- rence, and we wish to thank him for his inspiration and suggestions, which helped us to solve our difficulties incompleting the course. -Evalyn Beeson 1928 E J-.-.-.-. -:.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-. .-.-.-.-.-.r.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.v-.-..-.-.-.-.- .-.A Top row, left to right: Cloyce Wolfe, Leonard Silveus, Gaylord Rader, Robert Ohl, Rudolph Fisher, Robert Keelor, Harold Kuhlman, Francis Ensign, Richard Trout, George Withrow, Robert Delo, Morris Switzer.

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- gerous chemicals. We enjoyed the work as a class, and feel that our time has been very profitably spent. It has been a means of gaining practical knowledge to enable us to better appreciate the world in which we live. --Pearle Huffman 1928 -------- -----------1 T H E DIXIE f--------: ...... - .-.-.--.--.-.-.

All of the Plane Geometry Class of last year are taking Solid Geome- try this year which shows the firm belief that the students who have the ability to carry Geometry belong to the select few. We will have an insight into deductive reasoning and it will allow us to know what it means to prove a statement, and give us the privilege of "standing upon the vantage ground of truth."

THE LATIN DEPARTMENT UROMANI HODIERNP' "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 Latin origin. The Freshman Class, with the exception of a few members, entered the first year Latin and have composed the largest class ever enrolled in this course. We hope they will keep on, for, as yet, they have only begun. The Virgil Class consisted of six members, namely, Sarah Fisher, Hazel Deter, Cloyce Wolfe, Rachael Beihler, Dorotha Brinkman and Eleanore Poole. - Bonum, Melius, Optimum Numquam requisat Dum bonum est melius Et melius est optimum -Eleanore Poole 1928 f------------------f------ THE DIXIE Top row, left to right: Eloise Trautman, Mildred Billingsly, Violet Coleman, Grace Stump, Grace Beck and Miss Heckathorn, instructor.

HOME ECONOMICS There are fourteen members enrolled in the Home Economics course this year, six of whom are Sophomores and eight of whom are Freshmen. The work is organized so that the pupil will get all of the training for the practical efficiency in the home. The course of study for the Freshmen girls is divided into two parts. An equal amout of time is devoted to Food work and clothing work. The Sophomore girls work includes a course in cooking, sewing, die- tetics, sanitation, home sanitation, home nursing and a general course in Home planning and Home management. Hot lunches, sold at a low cost each day are prepared by an able cook who is assisted by the Home Economics girls during the noon hour. Each pupil of both classes will have to do some project work, which will give her more practice, for Practice makes Perfect. Both classes have progressed this year with the help of their teacher, Miss Heckathorn. -Flossie Norris 1928 I THE DIXIE Left to right, top row: Woodrow Zeigler, Leonard Silveus, George Yeager, Gaylord Rader.

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. 1928 Left to right: Robert Keelor, first tenorg Howard Poe, second tenor: Earl Neuman, first bassg Willard Ault, second bass. MALE QUARTETTE 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.

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. MANAGERS 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. THEDIXIE ATHLETICS AND PHYSICAL TRAINING OU WILL see as you turn over the following pages that athletics at Van st 'it' Buren Hi have considerable prominence. J ..s rl x 4 There is no other activity that stimulates school spirit to a greater LJ . J.. extent than does athletics. What would our school be without spirit? If 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 of '28. -D. D. Lawrence 1928 THE DIXIE F OO TBA LL TEA Ml Top row, left to right: Supt.

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 year. 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. -Willard Ault 1928 THE DIXIE --f------ l Standing, left to right: Huntington, Managerg Brandeberry, Neuman, Silveus, Delo, R.

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 victoriously. SCHEDULE OF GAMES Mt.

DAVID NEAL 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 COPELAND 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. HAROLD KUHLMAN 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. WILLARD AULT 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. 1928 jiwvsw V -yn-1.5.--Y -f--- - -H.. .. 1 T bw ' l THE DIXIE , l l l w V F E P V K 1 1928 EARL NEUMAN 'Heavie' only a sophomore this year but he's one of the best running guards we had.

ALBERT NEBERGALL 'Kazook', is a short but scrappy bas- ketball player with a trick of making fancy shots that look impossible and still go through. HOWARD POE 'Poe', was captain this year and a good one too, with a spirit that would never die and a knack of putting himself into the fight just where he was needed most.

ROBERT KEELOR "Bob", is one of the fastest men we have and has the ability to get open shots and make them count. MORRIS SWITZER 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 SILVEUS 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. 1928 ' - - -'-'-'-'-f'-'-'-'-'-f'-'-'-'-'-'- -'-'-'-'-'l E -'-'-"-'-'-"-'-' ---- ' -'-"-'-'-'-'-'-"-'-'-'-' Sitting, left to right: Leora Dilts, Eleanore Poole, Mary Miller, Laura Over- hxlt D th Yfzf V ' P ll 1 , oro y L, 15,er, era owe . h Standing: Mgr., Mary Mellott, Florence Cline, Hazel lleter.

Not only the girls are to be commended for their splendid work but also their coach Roy Clymer and faculty advisor, Miss Bower. SCHEDULE OF GAMES Opp's V. B. Dec. 9, Mt.

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. LEORA DILTS "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. ROSANNA HUNTINGTON "Posey", a Sophomore, was another of our valuable forwards Being small and quick she covered her part of the floor as forward very well. ELEANORE POOLE "Peanuts", Senior, played hard for the team. She was always willing to fill her position as forward when needed. LOIS REAMSNYDER "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.

MARY MILLER'-Ex-Captain "Snooks", Senior, played guard and was "right there" whenever she was needed. She played a good clean game all through the season and will be missed next year. DOROTHY YEAGER "Ann", Junior, played forward. Not many had the knack of putting 'em through the basket like she had. She has one more year to show her ability in basketball. LAURA OVERHOLT "Leo", Senior, was quick on her feet and very seldom left her opnonent land a ball in the basket. She is a valuable player to lose.

We feel that much of the first team's success was due to the hearty co- operation shown by each member in both practice work and as substitutes. -i-el928-+-- pg., lil, . X THE DIXIE ----f TRA C K 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! -Lois Reamsnyder 1928 if -------- ---------- THE DIXIE TRACK 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 were produced. 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 Flanagan. 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 this season. 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. -Francis Ensign BASEBALL 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 champions. l--19281- 3 - 4- . , ' b i b . l A7 - V x , ,A Y 1 Sl .J nfwaff Diff' nrt: A ' NJHLIXKS C9fx'4 fl fy W5 AL-L Alfwfzf ' 'UA C I6 73 0fvES ff! Eff 1 .4 , x -X ., -., WA., .
