A Toreboding spiriT creeps o'er us

We lcnew she loved and blessed us
And iT made school life worTh while.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
Education such as is comprehended in our school Curriculums is one of the prime
essentials of our free institutions.
While our school system, from the standpoint of financial obligations, might be con-
sidered an expensive institution, yet its value cannot be measured with money nor its
influence for the welfare of humanity calculated by any monitary considerations.
Material considerations should always be held secondary to intellectual and moral
We, the Board of Education, are proud to feel that this Arcadia District is doing its
full share for the basic essential of human progress.
We congratulate the class of 1937 and bid its members God speed. We shall endeavor
to maintain the present high standard of quality and efficiency.
The present board members are: Fred S. Leonard,'Presidentg Ellis Pessell, Vice Presi-
dent, Floyd Stoner and Paul Schubert, Purchasing Cornmitteeg Harry Hofmaster, Clerkg
Your success or failure will be determined very largely by your thoughts and your
mental attitude, upon your ability to adapt yourself to a given situation. During the
industrial revolution, widespread suffering was caused by individuals who could not, or
would not, adjust themselves to the fast moving machine age.
Today we are passing through another epoch making period. Millions are out of
work, their old jobs are no longer available. This does not necessarily mean that nothing
is in sight for the vast army of unemployed, but it does mean, that the person who is
seeking employment Illust be ever ready to fit into this fast changing era.
We hope that your schooling during the past years has fitted you to be able to cope
with the times. There is no power under the stars that can defeat a man who has the
right perspective of life.
Go for the goal that you strive to attain with the spirit of the old guard that dies but

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
On September S, 1933, thirty green but eager Freshman entered Arcadia High
School expecting some day to fill the places of the dignified Seniors and finally re-
ceive their diplomas and go out into life. Our guide was Miss Roller and under her
leadership we elected Lucille Fisher as Presidentg George Monday, Vice-Presidentg
Lloyd Fisher as Secretary, and Ray Bare, later Ruth Mergenthaler, as Treasurer. We
took our initiation very calmly and as good sports. At our first party at Laura
Ebersole's our attendance was perfect. We Were Well represented in music and

RAMBUNG RADIO REPORTER REPORTS NEWS
This is station K D K A in Pittsburgh. I shall give you some news of the seniors of
1937 of Arcadia, Ohio, as I have been requested to do. I have hunted through my
scrap book of news items and have found something about each members of this class
for the year 1947. I shall give some of the headings to you as they have appeared in the
newspapers during the last ten years.
The first name I have here is Arabelle Kinsley. She is still teaching the fourth grade
in one of the schools in Coshocton, Ohio. She has been teaching here since she graduated
from Bowling Green six years ago,
The next classmate's name here is Donald Johnsons He is married and owns a large
farm in Seneca County.
Ruth Bowman is another member who is married. At the time of this clipping she
was living in Cleveland in luxury.
This next clipping is headed "World Traveler Gives Talk Here." It is no other
traveler than John Newman. John travels all over the world. He has just returned from
Russia. Everyone likes to hear of his unusual experiences.
"Lantz Resturant Largest in Detroit. LeRoy Rantz, Arcadia graduate owns largest
restaurant in Detroit." LeRoy started farming, but didn't like it so went to Detroit to
find work. He received a job as head cook in a restaurant. His good meals increased the
restaurant's trade so much that his wages were raised. He finally bought it himself.
Roller Fox is working in this restaurant now also. He started farming too, but like Lantz,
didn't favor it. When LeRoy had so much work on his hands, he called for Roller. Now
Roller is about to start a restaurant of his own in another section of the city.
"Opera to be Given in State Theater in Columbus. The Opera 'Madame Butterfly'
will be given this evening in the State Theater. Miss Geraldine Bohn is the director." She
graduated from Bowling Green, instructed operettas a few years, and now instructs
operas which are always a great success.
"Best Discipline School Has Ever Had. First grade teacher is so strict she has made
the whole school have better discipline than ever before." You have probably guessed
that this is Lucille Fisher. She went to Marion, Indiana to college and has been teaching
in a grade school in Fort Wayne for the last six years.
"The Best Mechanic in the Country." This is Wayne Gibson. He started his pro-
fession in West Independence six years ago and soon received much business. The fact
that it is located on a national highway helped him much. Everyone who has had any
business with him has been well satisfied.
"Secretary Marries Employer," Nina Binger, who has been secretary for a photog-
rapher has married her employer. This was in 1940. She is living in Albany, New York
now, where her husband has his studio.
"Play Company Hires Another Seamstressf' A play company, which travels all over
the United States, has hired Opal Moore for one of its costume makers.
"Laura Ebersole Has Great Success as Orchestra Leader." Laura went to Bowling
Green and Ohio State Universities. She taught Home Economics and modern languages
and then received a position as orchestra leader. Her orchestra has been heard over the
radio quite frequently.
"Speaker of House Keeps Good Orderf' The State Assembly has never had such good
order as they have had since Ralph Sherman has, been the Speaker. Ralph studied public
speaking in college and soon became interested in politics. He was sent to the State House
of Representatives by a large majority and was soon elected Speaker.

"Librarian Known for Excellent Work. Kentha Ewing has been Librarian here for
the last four years and is liked by everyone who Visits the library, for she can give him
or find for him any information he wishes." Kentha went to Western Reserve and upon
graduation she was employed in the State Library in Columbus for the last four years.
l'Secretary of Big Firm Gets Salary Raise." Lowell Moore is this lucky secretary. He
is working for one of the largest firms in Illinois. He did secretarial work for the gov-
ernment for a few years in Hancock County. When this large Chicago firm asked for a
good reliable secretary, Lowell was recommended and toqk the position.
Bernard Dwenger is the expert telegraph operator for the railroad in Arcadia accord-
ing to this piece here.
l'College Professor Returns to Work After Home for Short Visitf' Sam Treece is this
professor. Now he goes by the name of Dr. Samuel Treece. He surely studied harded in
college than he did in high school to attain such a position. That just proves what one
can do if he only tries.
Marie Heinze is doing house work in Columbus for her cousin. Columbus must be a
good place to go. She's the third girl from this class to go there.
"Stenographer Breaks Typing Record." Luella Evenbeck, who is a private secretary
for a prominent business man, can type faster and as accurately as she could in school.
She was the fastest typer graduated during her years of school. She is still increasing the
number of words per minute that she can take in short hand.
"Wealthy Lady and Companion Return from Hawaiian Islands." The companion is
no other than Edna Rayle. Edna left her name and address at different places, when we
were on our senior trip, as a companion and secretary for an elderly lady. She has been
traveling for eight years with this wealthy lady.
Another senior of '37 who is married is Olive Nau. She studied music in Chicago for
several years but now is married and lives on a farm in Biglick Township.
"Most Successful Farmer in Hancock County Uses Newest Scientific Methods."
Lloyd Fisher started farming the summer school was out. He has been very successful
and prosperous by using all the scientific methods of farming. He owns a large farm
in his native county.
George Monday is another successful farmer. He would be as good as Lloyd but he
does a good bit of auctioneering which takes much of his time away from his farm. He
is one of the best auctioneers of his county. He owns his farm toog neigher George nor
Lloyd are married.
"Nurse Marriesf' This nurse is Lillian Lewis. She went to Toledo Hospital for her
nurse's training and has been doing this kind of work for the last six years. She has now
given up nursing for a home of her own. She is to live in Fort XVayne where her husband
It seems as though every member of this class is doing well. Not one of us has had
much trouble since school has been out,not even as much as we had in school with the
teachers. I Wish to add that I never heard of any member gaining weight from the
candy the seniors sold at noon.
I hope I have given you radio listeners the information you wished.
This is your Rambling Radio Reporter, Doris Peters, saying "So-Long" until next
Week at this same time when I shall answer more requests from this same radio station.

It was in 1934 that a model-T touring car, packed and overcrowded with a real
motley of high school freshies, chugged, yes, literally jumped, into the "garage of learn-
ing" at R. K. D. The whole ugangn was bound for that great and wonderful city,
Having stopped for initiation and class organization, Torn Stacy was employed as
president, or chauffeur of the grand open-air vehicle. Tom was a fast, careful driver, so
we had time to stop and "rake in a little cash" for gas by having a box social. Next we
stopped and chose our colors, mascot, etc. We painted the "wreck" red and silver, had a
porcupine and a lily of the valley sketched on the rear. Then we sent Paul Walters and
Mary Louise Thomas to the traffic court fstudent counciljt Every few miles we stopped
for a party, initiation of other Freshies, bake sales.
Then we changed drivers. Tom received an honorable discharge and Mack Parker
took the wheel. Alice Huffman and Charles Graumlich were sent to the traffic court
this year. While we drove through one city we saw several of our names in lights "The
Girl in the Fur Coat" was being presented by our class.
Now on the third part of our journey Emmet Huntley grabs the wheel and we rush
on. In the hurry we have lost several valuable members, but several new ones have
climbed in. We stopped and bought our rings, gave another play, "Wild Gingerf' took
part in football and basketball, had a bake sale, sang songs and had flat tires.
At the present we are stopping about S00 miles from Washington to fill our tank
with gas, our tires with air and get ready for the final stretch when we can inhabit the
whole road. Honk! Honk! All aboard for the journey to Washington and being big
grown up Seniors!

bravely as if it were common occurrence.
Our first party was held at Phyllis Moyer's home in the form of a Halloween Party.
The next one was a Valentine Party at the Biglick Grange Hall.
On March 12 our class presented "All in the Family" as our Sophomore play.
' To our great surprise, we won the annual sale over four other classes and as a reward
-a free dinner. This was the first time our class had won a contest of any kind.
We have been planning for a roller skating party at Midway Park in the spring.
Most of us are looking forward to a rolling time.

GRADS OF '40
In the year 1928 a group of about forty boys and girls started journeying into a
new field of life called school. We atteneded the first six years of school, participating
each year in operettas and looking forward to when we should enter Seventh and Eighth
The fall of 1934 found us in the Seventh grade. We presented an operetta in both
1934-35. As eighth graders we were present at a birthday party given by the Seventh
and Eighth grade pupils in honor of Miss Nelle Ebersole. In the spring of 1936 we
graduated from the Eighth grade.
In the fall of 1936 a group now numbering forty-two entered high school. We have
lost some members in the past but have also welcomed new ones. High school was offered
more opportunities and responsibilities which we have shouldered with a smile.
At the beginning of the fall we were initiated by the Sophomores. We bore the jeers
"Greenies" and "Those Green Freshiesn along with the humiliation of getting into wrong
class rooms. We had two successful parties at Ardinelle Thomas' home and the school
house. We elected oificers at the beginning of the year. They are: President, Charles
Kiriang Vice President, Mildred Ebersoleg Treasurer, Harry Thomasg Secretary, Fred
Heischman, and Sponsor, Miss Moody.
As a whole we enjoyed high school very much and looked forward to our future high

Wfe, the Annual staff of 1937, have cooperated to the fullest extent in publishing
this Annual. Everyone has done his share in making our book of memories a success.
At this time we wish to extend our sincere thanks to our advisor, Miss Foster, for the
splendid cooperation she has shown through out our period of work.
We also deeply appreciate the help the lower classmen have given us in publishing
our greatest accomplishment in our school life.
To you, the other members of the staff, I can only say that I hope this book will re-
ward you many times over for the efforts you have put forth in making it a success.

All the live long day,
It all the clock can say.
The same thing over and over,
You could listen to it all day long,
Till you're sad and sober.
A Hof Summer Day
On a hot summer day,
As I lay
Beneath the trees,
Listening to the humming bees,
I could hear the chirping of a robin
And the neigh of old dobbin
Down in the woods.
I felt like sleeping
But the flies kept creeping,
They were also biting,
And it made me feel like fighting.
Finally I was snoring,
But the flies they were boring
So I got up and played with the pup.
-Foxfm Pm rl
In front of the cannons' road,
In front of the machine-guns' bark,
In front of the field-pieces' uproar,
In front of the shell holes dark,
There with the enemy nigh,
Are the men who must fight and die.
Oh! that there were a ban
On such a degraded clan
That would make profit from war.
The Land of Mys+ery
Have you read of the land of mystery,
Wliere everything is haunting,
Wfhere ghostly shadows walk about,
And people's brains are wanting?
The boys are always neat and primg
Their ears turn out
Their toes turn in,
And they grow whiskers on their chin.
It's enough to drive you crazy
Witli spooks and witches and such
And if you aren't careful,
It succeeds in doing that much.
Ice cream grows on bushes,
Jelly tarts grow on the ground,
If you believe this pack of lies
You're the biggest fool I,ve found.

There are sixty girls in the Glee Club. Meetings are held every Monday and Wednes-
day and the group specialized in trios and double trios.
The first public performance was given at the first Parent-Teacher Meeting. The
combined boys' and girls' clubs presented an interesting Christmas contata, "Childe
Jesus" by Clokey. The Glee Clubs sang for Farmers' Institute.
A county festival made up of three schools, was given in place of an operetta. Pupils
from three schools participated: McComb, Van Buren, and Arcadia. Our glee club sang
"Little Boy Blue", Nevin, "Night Songv, Clokey, and "O, Press Thy Cheek Against
Mine Own", Jeusen Cain.
An all-school program took place on April 23. Members from both boys' and girls'
clubs sang for Baccalaureate.
Page 3 6
The Boys' Glee Club is composed of thirty members who meet regularly twice a week.
For part of the year the club was divided into two groups differing in the ends they
wished to achieve. Whetl1er the groups wanted to sing as an accomplishment or to sing
as a pleasure, both aimed to close the year with a finer appreciation of music.
At the Christmas season the Boys' Glee Club cooperated with the Girls' Glee Club in
presenting a program of Christmas numbers. Robert Leonard was one of our soloists.
He sang "The Birthday of a King", by Neidlinger.
This spring the club together with the Girls' Glee Club sponsored a program in April
consisting of music and drama.

When Joyce Wingate brings her younger sister and her colored mammy, Bedelia, out
to gloomy old Mill Tavern on a stormy evening, with a view to buying it, turning it into

two college mates who are rivals for her affections, and by a timorous and stuttering
Freshman, who has been sent to spend the night as a part of his fraternity initiation.
Here the hard faced master of the tavern and his crafty sister do all they can to scare
the young people away, from scattering bloody hatchets about the premises to binding
and gagging Joyce and the terrified Freshman. Here a ghost woman, presumably the
spirit of a murderess, prowls about, uttering blood-curdling screams Here occurs the
rendezvous of two leaders of a narcotic stealing gang and a dope peddling college student,
with a detective from the federal narcotic on their trail.

The club aims to promote scholarship, to teach general office work, to award pins and
certificates for efficiency and accuracy to club members, and to cultivate leadership, poise,
cooperation, personality and initiative.
The social side of the club was brought forth n a skating party held at the Green

I-Iurrah! We had so much fun. Our team played eight county games, winning three,
tying two, and losing three.
Cur most thrilling games came when we played Vanlue. We had twogames with
this team, one a practice and the other a league game.
In our regular county game with Vanlue, several players were injured. "Dee" Sher-
man was struck on the nose, thereby breaking the cartilage, and Captain Lewis was
kicked on the head. We lost the game by four points. Vanlue girls became county
Our second game with Vanlue was only a practice game, but it proved to be an inter-
esting one. We were ahead until the last minute. Then things began to change. Isabelle
Kieffer and Lillian Lewis 'were out on fouls and Vanlue's leading forward managed enough
baskets to beat us by two points.
XVe lost both games and yet we had more fun playing these than any others. That
shows what really fine girls made up the team this year.
Our coach, Mrs. Crume, was really humane. She was everyone's friend and we
thought much of her. She spent much time. with us this year.
Our manager, Luella Evenbeck, was just as efficient as she was full of fun. She was
Very small, but certainly could put pep into the team.
The squad's good times off the floor came when we had a chicken supper, given by
the coach, manager, and captain, and a banquet given by the Mothers and Athletic As-

Arcadia started the long basketball grind with only one letterman, Roller Fox. Sev-
eral members of last year's second team were available for the other positions.
Our first game was with Bloomdale, a non-league game, which we dropped by a close
XVe started off the league season with Vanlue. Vanlue had a veteran team that was
"dead" on their shots, and for the first time in several years, we lost to Vanlue.
However, we finally hit our stride in the Van Buren game and we won a 22-21 de-
cision over the Allen Township boys.
The next game was McComb. McComb in past years has found Arcadia hard to
beat on its own floor and this year was no exception. We won 34-26.
The Mt. Cory game was bitterly fought all the way. The game was nip and tuck
until the last quarter when Mt. Cory put on the steam and won 37-31.
Arcadia led Arlington 12-6 at the half-time, but a last half spurt by Arlington re-
sulted in a 25-21 overtime defeat.
The Liberty game was a listless affair, frequented with many fouls against both teams.
We lost 28-21.
Inability to hit from the foul line proved to be the factor of defeat at the hands of
Loop Champions, Mt. Blanchard. Both teams had the same. number of field goals, but
Arcadia could not connect on the foul tosses.
Our last league game was with Rawson. Although we were defeated 25-22, the boys
showed much improvement in their passing. Rawson,s size assisted them in getting the

Arcadia drew Rawson at the tournament. The boys still showed the same aggressive-
ness as before, but lost in a close game 2.4-21. The Rawson team then went on to win the
The 1936 football team opened its season with
fairly good prospects for a winning team.
After several weeks of practice we took on
Upper Sandusky, a class A school, in a pre-season
game. Although the Upper boys greatly out-
weighted the Arcadia lads, we surprised them by
holding them to a 0-0 score. In this game our two
big boys in the line, LeRoy QPower Housej Lantz
and Carl Schubert, performed well. The defen-
sive work of Sam Treece was also a highlight of
We opened our league season the next week
with Vanlue. We expected to put Vanlue out of
the way in a hurry, but they had other plans in
store for us. With a barrage of passes in the last
half they beat us by a couple of touchdowns. Clay-
ton and Alfred Conine did eiective work for Ar-
XVe came back the following Friday seeking
revenge by bombai-ding Van Buren 20-0. The
blocking of our guards, Fisher, Niebel and Martin,
was particularly outstanding. Ralph Sherman,
halfback, accounted for two touchdowns.
We played McComb this year in a sea of mud.
The game was tied up 6-6 at the half, but as the
game advanced, the downpour also increased and
as they were better swimmers than we were, they
floated over a pair of touchdowns in the last
quarter to break the tie. The passes from our
center, Gene Garrett, were exceptionally good.
Mt. Cory still seems to be a jinx to us. We
led the game 7-0 until the last two minutes when
the table turned to Mt. Cory's favor. Arcadia re-
ceived a 15 yard penalty which gave Mt. Cory
the ball on our 8 yard line with 4 downs to put
The large Cory team finally pushed the ball
over on their fourth down and also converted for
the extra point to tie the score at 7-7. In this
game Lloyd Fisher received an arm injury that put
him out for the remainder of the season.
The Arlington game was perhaps the best game
of the season for Arcadia. Fullback, Sam Treece,
started the fireworks by returning the opening
kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown behind fine
blocking of the forwards, Evan Anderson, sopho-
more quarterback, playing a good offensive game,
scored the second touchdown.
The Liberty-Arcadia game was a comedy of
errors. The Arcadia forward line repeatedly out-
charged the Liberty forward, and in the matter
of first downs, we had 15 to Liberty's S5 but luck
was against us and we lost by a score of 12-6.
Reffner, Pessell and Guisinger performed nobly in
the line while Foster Ford, substitute fullback,
proved that he had what it takes to make a foot-
The next game with Mt. Blanchard was our
hardest fought game of the season. The game was
nip and tuck until the last two minutes when Mt.
Blanchard pushed over two touchdowns on inter-
cepted passes. Sherman and Treece were forced to
the sidelines in the last half because of injuries.
Our last game of the season was with Rawson.
Rawson had a lare, well-coached team. Our of-
fense clicked very smoothly in the first half and
we led 7-0 at the half. However, in the last half
our defense bogged down, and they rallied to de-
feat us. Although we were defeated by Rawson,
we were the only county team to get. over S first
downs on them, which gives a good account for
our team. Roller Fox played a fine offensive and
Our record according to games won and lost
was not exceptionally good. However, all of our
games were closely contested. Most of our games
were lost in the last half, due mostly to lack of
man power and injuries.

A SURPRISE FOR POOR SAM
Dick the cat, was awful fat,
While Sam the dog was thing
Sam always enjoyed to run the cat
Around the old wheat bin.
One day when Sam went to the barn,
He thought he'd have some fung
If he got scratched a little bit
He didn't give a darn.
He came up slowly so
Dick wouldn't know
And suddenly let out a howl.
To his surprise Dick didn't run
He raised up very slow.
Sam felt a spray-and then the fumes,
He felt the ground below,
He knew the days were warm at noons,
But he thought he saw it snow.
To cell the truth about the matter,
Sam really didn't know.
He felt his head go in a clatter,
And his body bend like a bow.
