D EDICATION: OHIO SESQ UIC ENT ENNIAL
March 1, 1803, with nearly 60,000 inhabitants, Ohio was declared the 17th state of the union by President
Thomas Jefferson 'JH ' year, 1953, marks Ohio's 150th statehood anniversary with over 170 times the original
populatir During the yeai of growth the state has attained third place in the nation's industry and ranks high
Ohio is composed of 88 counties, with Darke County the leader in agriculture. Early Darke County was the
scene of many skirmishes between the Indians and U. S. troops commanded by Generals Anthony'Wayne and
Arthur St. Claire, which finally resulted in the signing of the Treaty of Greenville, 1795, and the opening of
the Northwest Territory for settlement.
Our village of Ansonia, founded in 1845, was formerly known by the i ane or Dallas. However, because of
another town in the state having the same name, much of the mail was missent. This caused the postmaster to
rename the village Ansonia. The name Ansonia was borrowed from a clock, which was made in Ansonia, Con-
necticut. This clock still remains in the local postoffice.
The Community of Ansonia has contributed many famous per-
f t 4 sonalities to the state, some of whom have gained world wide recogni-
4 tion. They are: Lowell Thomas, Radio Commentator, Author and
Traveler, Enock Zeitz, Renowned Mathematician, John S. Royer, First
Ansonia school Superintendent, First Newspaper Editor and Author of
"Royer's Mental Arithmetic"g and Annie Oakley, Famous "Little Miss
Sure Shot. "
We are proud to be natives of Ohio. The Buckeye state has a his-
tory to be proud of. Remember, you yourself, are continuing to give
it this history.

To The Students:
The ORP-CLE is a record, and a good one, oi your Ansonia
School for the year l9S'Z-53. long years from now it may be
d a source of pleasure for you and your iriends. To look back
upon the happenings oi your school years, is oiten a pleasant
' experience. Sometimes there is a note oi sadness, but, al-
ways it is interesting.
ll The ORACLE record is valuable to you for the happy moments
it enables you to relive. The record which really counts how-
, ever, is the one you make in after school years. There is often
a very definite connection between the two.
y The point X wish to make in this letter is to be found in
y the words of Omar khagy am, which are as follows: "The moving,
, Singer writes, and having writ, moves on, hor all your piety
nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, hor all your
, tears wash out a word oi it."
Make your school record right the first time so that "he
who runs" may read without any unpleasant sensation.

State-Scholarship Tests. The higher than average grades these students earned in the

This test lasted approximately three hours.
Last Summer the Ansonia American Legion Aux-
iliary made it possible for the first time for our
school to be represented at Buckeye Girls' State.
This program was held from June 21-29, at Capital

is to inform the girls more about our form of gover-
ment and to make them better citizens. Madonna

Thomas and his wife came to Ansonia by
the special invitation of Mr. A. R. Lam-

Mr. Lambert had built.
The day consisted mainly of a parade,
Mr. Thomas' nation-wide newscast directly
from Ansonia, and a dance.
