I believe in the efficiency of its faculty, who are perpetuating higher education in every branch of study. I believe in the student body, who as future citizens, shall have qual- ities to assume the responsibilities of a great nation. I believe in her ideals and her future growth. I do most firmly believe this without limit or restriction. DEDICATION We, the students of 1954, wish to dedicate this annual to Mr. Luther Fogt, our Senior Class Sponsor, for his counseling, guidance, and sincere understanding of the students during the past. W5 fx , f 0 fwmmgf We learn to do by doing. Developing an annual provides an excellent opportunity to learn as individuals, and also to learn to work cooperatively The Annual Staff should feel highly elated over the successful accom plishrnent of this cooperative endeavor.

' Class Motto-"In ourselves our future lies" Class Colors-Green and White Class Flower-White Rose CLASS HISTORY Year of 1950-51. In 1950 we entered Anna High School as Fresh- men, with a total of 39 membersg 7 from Kettlersville and 8 from McCartyville. Our class sponsor was Mr. M. D. Hall until he was called into service, Mr. James Gratz finished the year. Officers for our first year of high school were: President, Jim Berningg Vice-President, Jim Hulsmeyerg Secretary, Carol Fogtg Treasurer, Janice Elsassg Student Council, Patty Clark and Wayne Wilt. In October we were initiated and became full-fledged members of Anna High School. On December 15, a Homecoming Game was held with Susan Fogt and Ronald Jacoby representing our Freshman class. On March 9 we gave our Freshman assembly. Year of 1951-52. We returned in 1951 with a total enrollment of 39 members. Our sponsor was Mr. James L. Carroll. After our class was organized the election of officers took place: President, Randy Crump- ler, Vice-President, Ronald Jacoby, Secretary, Barbara Hawkins, Treas- urer, Carol Carmen, Student Council, Louise Counts and Larry Bell. On January 18 the Homecoming Game was held with Carol Watercutter and Ronald Jacoby representing our Sophomore class. On February 21 we gave our class assembly. Year of 1952-53. When we re-entered school in September of 1952, we had the total enrollment of 32 members. It was hard to believe that we were Juniors already. We elected officers immediately who were: President, Bill McCormick, Vice-President, Bob Raterman, Secretary, Louise Countsg Treasurer, Carol Fogtg Student Council, Patty Clark and Roland Kettler. Our sponsor was Mr. Paul R. Schilling. Our Junior Play, "Seventeen Is.Awfully Young," was given on October 30. The characters were: Mrs. Eliot .................................................................................. Gayla Bambauer Jan Eliot ........... ...........

Ray Bornhorst The annual Homecoming Game was held on December 19, with Sara Shaw and Don Flinn representing our Junior Class. On May 12, we enjoyed the Junior-Senior Prom, for which we Juniors had worked very hard. Year of 1953-54. In September of 1953, we entered as "Dignified Seniors" for the final year of our high school career. -Our class consisted of 33 members and our sponsor was Mr. Luther E. Fogt. Our class offi- cers chosen were: President, Ray Bornhorst, Vice-President, Ralph Inder- riedeng Treasurer, Barbara Wiltg Secretary, Sara Shaw, Student Council, Janice Elsass and Don Flinn. The annual Homecoming Game was held January 29. We were highly honored to have Carol Fogt as Homecoming Queen, with Ray Bornhorst as her escort. We gave our Senior Play on April 30. We enjoyed the Junior-Senior Prom which was given in our honor on May 11. On May 16, Baccalaureate was held, and May 17, we received our diplomas at Commencement. BEN'S BAR 8z GRILL, Anna PRGPHECY Wearily closing his brief case after the 1974 session of the United Nations, the President of the General Assembly walked out of the U. N. Building. Mr. Fogt was off for a wonderful vacation with his longtime friend and secretary, Homer Stangle. As they sped through Manhattan on the way back to his Park Avenue apartment where Eunice waited, Mr. Fogt felt a twinge of regret that he had missed the opening of the new show on Broadway, "North Atlantic", starring Susan Fogt. "North Atlantic" was the hit play that Fred Grieves produced, so he knew it had to be terrific. When he reached the apartment Eunice and their maid, Janice Elsass, had finished packing and were ready to leave for the airport immediately. Janice, who had been with them for years, was one of the best cooks around. The taxi came and on the way to the airport, Mr. Fogt had a chance to talk to the cab driver, Farris Van Horn. Farris said he had a perfect record of not having one crack-up for three weeks. Soon they arrived at La Guardia Field and hopped a plane for Anna, the perfect vacation spot. The two stewardesses on the plane were so friendly and gracious, Mr. Fogt finally recognized them to be two old pupils, Sara Shaw and Pat Clark. They assured him the plane would land safely in Anna, because it was piloted by the very capable "Boney" Inderrieden. After a while Mr. Fogt thought he recognized familiar voices, turned around, and there in the back of the plane sat "Batty" Wilt and Don Flinn, discussing tales of wild elephants and rhinos. They were just returning from a safari in South Africa. As they flew over Eastern Pennsylvania, about 25 miles from Pittsburgh, they looked down on the 2,000-acre farm owned and operated by Alfred Schroeder and Don Schmitmeyer. Mr. Fogt and Homer decided that Alfred and Don must be making a living considering that they owned two Cadillacs apiece. Mr. Fogt picked up a magazine that was laying on the seat beside him, and-chuckled at the clever cover. It had been drawn by Wilson Watkins, who had taken Norman Rockwell's place. He turned the page, and another familiar name leaped out at him 3 Carol Fogt-Editor-in-Chief. Pat appeared then and told them to fasten their safety belts, for they were about to land. Generally, Mr. Fogt con- sidered landing a nerve-racking ordeal, but with "Boney" at the controls they actually floated to the ground. When they stepped off the plane, the reporters and photographers were there to greet them. Someone had evidently already spread the news of their visit. Gayla Bambauer interviewed them, and promised to give them a front page Writeup in Bill McCormick's paper. Earl Vance, Anna's greatest photographer, was also there and snapped pictures as they stepped into their new Jaguar, which Bob Raterman had waiting for them. Bob was the only Jaguar dealer in Shelby County, and it was rumored that he had made a fabulous sum of money from his sales. They were speeding to their mansion on 42nd Street, when a siren sounded and Emerson Kruse ordered them to pull over. He said they'd been ex- ceeding the speed limit, and though he hated to do this to a friend, he'd have to arrest them. They were hauled into the Mayor's court, and Mr. Fogt was surprised to find his old position filled by Palmer Stangle. It struck him as being remarkable, that even though years had elapsed, Homer and Palmer still looked as much alike as ever. Sergeant Kruse PHILLIPS FARM STORE, Anna explained the charges to him and though Mayor Stangle didn't generally advocate corrupt government, he dismissed the charges against them. lAfter all, Homer and Palmer were blood brothers.j Darkness was just beginning to descend as they left the Mayor's office. A huge neon sign of a classy niteclub on West Boulevard was flashing on and off. Niteclubs had never held a particular charm for him, but there was something different about this one. As they entered it, he suddenly knew why. This was the small restaurant Thelma Huls- meyer's dad had started long ago, and after he retired, Thelma took it over and converted it into a nite spot. They checked their coats at the door with Beulah Braun. She had been working as hat-check girl ever since the niteclub had opened. The headwaiter, Willard Heintz, showed them to a table and took their order. They sat down and glanced around. Mr. Fogt recognized a lot of celebrities to be his ex-students. Don Schwartz and Larry Bell were there, and upon catching their eye, they ambled over and joined them. After talking over old times for a brief period, Don excused himself. He said he was scheduled to takeoff for Mars in his Super 56 Rocket the next morning. Don was ambassador to Mars, and he had to settle a few minor details in the peace negotiations with them. Larry was going to accompany him, as his mechanic. Funny thing! Larry had invented the -Super 56 Rocket, the only one of its kind, and no one else had yet mastered the mechanical parts of it. There's no doubt about it-Larry was a mechanical genius. Just then the orchestra, under the leadership of Lois Lacy, com- menced to play "Stardust". Lois' string orchestra was considered the best in the United States, and it was plain to see why. Upon glancing at the couples on the floor, Mr. Fogt spotted Jim Hulsmeyer and Carol Watercutter. They were married now, and had opened an Arthur Murray Dancing Studio in Anna. They were also doing exhibitions on T.V. Homer reached into his pocket for a cigarette, but discovered he was out. He signaled to the cigarette girl, and Louise Counts slinked over. She greeted them with her usual b-ig smile, and though it was against regulations. she chatted for a minute. She told Mr. Fogt that he must definitely drop by Anna School before leaving town. Since Mr. Stewart had retired, Barbara Wilt had taken over as superintendent, and was doing an excellent job. Patty Bertsch was also on the teaching staff. She had taken over the girls physical ed. classes and had organized the best girls football team in the state. Mr. Fogt glanced toward the door just as Ray Bornhorst and Beverly Wrigley entered. Louise said that Ray was the president of a new ferti- lizer plant recently erected in Anna, and Beverly was employed as his private secretary. As the orchestra started to play the closing strains of their theme song, Mr. Fogt and Eunice rose to leave. While driving home, they discussed the events of the day. They both agreed that the Senior Class of 1954 had turned out extremely well. He yawned lazily. Suddenly he felt tired, but it was a peaceful tiredness. He knew now why he devoted most of his life to teaching. This Senior Class was his re- ward. GRILLIOT PLACE.

M M MM f if , imp!! iw "DON BONEY WILLIE LARRY DALE 'DOUG RONNIE BEAR Coach Green Donald Laws, Wayne Dunn, Managers Susie, Carol, Patty, Sara, Yell Leaders ENGLISH STUDIOS, INC. Ohio Bldg. Sidney, Ohio Official predictions painted a very dismal picture regarding the for- tunes of the 1953-54 edition of the Anna Rockets. Despite this pessimis- tic forecast, Coach Green molded the Rockets into a formidable unit capable of competing with the best this area could offer. On November 20th, before an overflow crowd in the local gym, Anna subdued arch rival Jackson Center, 65-59. Jim chalked up 32 points to lead the scoring parade in this encounter. Ft. Loramie became the first league casualty of this potent Anna team by a score of 65-38. Anna maintained a comfortable lead through- out. Neighboring Botkins was defeated by the talented Rockets, 59-55, on December 11. Hulsmeyer and Inderrieden scored 24 and 22 points re- spectively in this extravaganza. Leading all the way, the Rockets trounced Houston, 60-46, for their fourth straight league victory, having beaten Jackson Center, 50-33, in the previous game. The Russia Raiders were dealt a 49-36 lacing for the Rockets' fifth straight league victory. Hulsmeyer played an outstanding game to lead the scoring with 22 points. An underrated Fairlawn team nearly upset the dope. However, the Rockets rallied in the late stages to conquer this inspired foe, 40-38. This victory assured the Rockets of first place in the Shelby County league race. Throughout the basketball season the Rockets engaged in a number of non-league games. At the onset of the season Anna lost a hard fought game to a classy New Bremen five. Hulsmeyer and Inderrieden led the attack against the Cardinals by contributing 14 and 13 points respectively. New Knoxville edged the Rockets in their first home engagement. Boney Inderrieden swished the nets for 22 points. The Rockets hit their stride. to defeat a lanky Holy Angels quintet, 66-40, after two reversals. Huls- meyer was the outstanding scorer in this contest with 27 points. Hunts- ville fell before the Rockets, 56-53, in a closely contested encounter. Anna lost its third game of the season to a well-balanced Cridersville team, 67-47. An unusually small gym was definitely instrumental in the 20-point spread between these teams. Inderrieden was high point man with 21. Anna salvaged a 48-46 victory over Buckland, defeated a stubborn Brown aggregation, 67-50, but lost to a top-rated Minister team, 68-57, fell before a strong Ft. Recovery five, 62-57, and was downed by a classy Bradford quintet, 68-57. In the Rosewood Invitational tournament the local five managed to break even. The host team was defeated, 68-53, in the first contest. A highly regarded Northwestern crew hung a 58-42 loss on the Rockets in the second contest. Hulsmeyer, Inderrieden and Schwartz were the big guns for the green and white. On February 9, a determined Anna five was plagued by a severe case of "tournament jitters" which resulted in a 43-38 setback at the hands of a hot Russia five. Inderrieden managed to score 14 points to keep the Rockets in the game. Jackson Center was then dropped from the running by an aroused Anna team, 62-42. Inderrieden scored consistently to lead the scoring with 27 points. Houston eliminated Anna from further competition by eking out a 39-35 victory over the Rockets. Anna won 13 games and lost 9. Individual scoring for the season was as follows: Hulsmeyer, 437 5 Inderrieden, 4023 Schwartz, 139, Heintz, 91, Klopfenstein, 515 Bell, 27 3 K. Billing, 153 Schmitmeyer, 8g Egbert, 7, L.
