THE SENIOR CLASS
AROADIA HIGH SCHOOL
To Our Header:
Within the pages of this book lie
the hopes, the dreams, the aspirations
not only of this staff, but of our school
as Well. This publication is one of the
many 'activities associated with seniors,
but it is by no means only a senior
activity. Without the cooperation from
the student body our efforts would
prove fruitless. Our aim has been to
compose a book to be a permanent
representation of our school, its activi-
ties and its people. We hope that our
efforts will not be in vain.
The 1939 Annual Staff.
In our World today of conflicting
ideas of government it becomes in-
creasingly difficult for young people to
retain ideals of democracy. Our cher-
ished beliefs have been in the right of
an individual to construct his life on
his own initiative, observing tolerance
and respect foward others in their pur-
suit of happiness and security, in his
right to religious freedom, to freedom
of speech, and the duties these rights
enforce upon the individual.
Under a democracy youth can lift
himself and develop his special talents.
Under a dictatorship he has no free-
dom to direct his interest but must do
by force that which has been pl-anned
for him by some commanding individ-
To maintain these cherished ideals
of American democracy is the sincere
hope of this class of 1939 and in this
spirit do We dedicate our year book.

Four forces are active in the
development of an individual in a
democratic society: home, school, gov-
ernment, and religion. All proceed
toward the same goal, the formation of
an active, independent individual who
realizes his success and that ot his
community rests upon his cooperative
efforts to bring about the greatest
amount ot good to the greatest number
We are chiefly concerned in our
book with activities in the school
which help the individualg however, We
recognize and appreciate the fact that
the inter-relationship of the four in-
fluences is of the utmost value.

All living is a matter of organiza-
tion. Without it nothing can be
accomplished. There is no order, no
enthusiasm and no cooper-ation. Since
schools are on the same basis as all
other life, our board of education, our
faculty and our pupils are organized.
With the board of education back
of them, the faculty do all in their
power to help the student. lt is the
desire of everyone that each individual
pupil develop into a thoughtful citizen.
lf the school loses its ideals of
democracy, then the nation as a Whole
loses them. lt is through the coopera-
tive efforts of these four units-com-
munity, board, faculty, and students-
that the idea of a democracy may be

The school has an important democratic influence in our lives.
The school is the most important part ot a democracyg Without it
no democratic government could survive. lt is here that We
spend the greater part of our early years and learn the essentials
ot good citizenship. Our character is molded in part by our
teachers with Whom we spend several hours a day. ln school
we are in close association with many other pupils which teaches
us to be more understanding of problems which We may meet in
later life when dealing with other people.

Here We learn to obey our superiors
and to accept new ideas and new
beliefs. In school we learn to develop
the body as Well as the mind. The
school also attempts to establish in our
minds the idea ot equality in men. All
these help to establish democratic
ideas in order that We may retain a

AU REVOIR BUT NOT GOOD-BY
To the boys and girls of the class of 1939 we wish unending success as you leave our
high school to take up in a broader sense the duties and responsibilities of citizenship in
this great democracy of ours.
XVe should not get the idea that education alone makes us superior men and women,
or che fields for which we are preparing are more honorable and exalting than others. On
the contrary, a job is no bigger than the man, and every man has within him the possi-
bilities of' making it an honorable or dishonorable calling.
As the poet says:
Om' ship sails easf, zmotbor west,
Wbila' the self xamc' brc'L'zes blowg
Ifs the set of fha' mils and noi the gales,
That !1f'fL'1'17li7lL'S the way they go.
Like the ships at sea are the ways of Fate,
As we trawl along tbrou-gb lifeg
Ifs the ret of flue soul that deternz-ines fbe goal,
Ana' not the calm or strife.

"THE MOVING FINGER WRITES, AND HAVING
WRIT. MCVES ON"
In the fall of 193 5, an eager crowd of boys and girls rushed into Arcadia High School,
anxious to become a part of it. This group was the class of '3 9, the present Senior Class.
Naturally, we realized that there would be some difficulty, but we felt that we were
equal to it. Had there been any other thought, the record of the moving finger would
be different today.
As we took up our duties as Freshmen, we were forced to endure a mild initiation.
Later, we chose blue and gold for our class colors, the white carnation as our flower and
"To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield" as our class motto.
When we became Sophomores, our work took on a new meaning. We presented the
play "All in the Family", which was very successful.
As we advance from class to class, we realize that we have grown both mentally and
physically. In the varied interests and endeavors, each one has found a way to express
himself. Sportsmanship has been encouraged by every member of the class.
With three-fourths of our high school life completed we very successfully portrayed
"Yimmie Yonson's Yobn. We took great pleasure in entertaining the Seniors at the
Junior-Senior banquet. This was, perhaps, the most important event of our Junior year.
Now as Seniors, we look back upon the history of our class in Arcadia High. Of
course, we see many weaknesses recorded there, but they are exceeded to a great ex-
tent by the progress we made. We presented our third and last play "The Arrival of
Kitty." As guests, we cordially thank the Juniors for the honor paid us at the Junior-
Senior banquet. Now with great enthusaism we look forward to Commencement which
is only the beginning of our career.
We bid farewell to Arcadia High, hoping that underclassmen appreciate her as we did.

K Arcadia Hospital.
I wish to apologize for not answering your letter sooner but it was physically im-
possible. You stated that you had read in the paper an account of my recent accident
and my serious condition. I was hurt in the plant of the agricultural company I was
representing in Oregon. I was unconscious and didn't come to for sixty-two hours. In
the meantime, my company had sent me by airplane to the most famous doctor in the
I was so weak for some time that I wasn't allowed to see anyone but, boy, was I sur-
prised when I saw the doctor. It was our old classmate, Paul Lee. I had been so busy
the last few years that I hadn't kept track of any of my schoolmates but you.
I noticed a paper on the table headed "Arcadian Daily News". I asked the nurse
why that paper was in Oregon. She told me I had been flown by plane to Arcadia.
After I got over that shock, I inquired how' a large hospital and a prominent doctor
came to Arcadia.
In March, 1941, Walter Moore became the proud father of sextuplets. This aroused
so much interest that the government sent the best doctor they had to care for them.
As Paul was only needed at these duties part time, a hospital was built to utilize his
I haven't -had much to do since I have been here so I decided to trace some of my old
friends. I suppose you have noticed some of' this in the papers but I'11 tell you what I
Edna Anderson and Evelyn Lantz are the head nurses at this hospital-one reason it
has so many patients.
Paul Groth studied to be a doctor but one day he absent-mindedly signed his name in
the space in a Death Certificate marked "cause of death." For some reason, this ruined
his trade. '
I-Ie then studied chemistry and with Bernard Riter invented a use for chemicals
found in the water from wells around here. This is what really gave Arcadia its boom.
The Arcadia Chemical Company drew so many workers that Arcadia is now the largest
city in Ohio.
Lola Moser and Phyllis Moyer are the head bookkeepers at the company and draw
quite large salaries. Alice and Alma Steiner are secretaries at the Chemical Co.
A broadcasting station has been established here with Reed Damon as chief electri-
cian. One of the feature numbers is singing and lecturing by Helen Saltzman.
Foster Ford and Fred Pessell formed a partnership and run a joint dairy and creamery.
They supply most of the town with its dairy products.
Maxine Bloom and Betty Jacobs have realized their ambition of becoming teachers.
Their duties are performed in one of the fifteen new schools here.
Evan Anderson, after an illustrious amateur and professional athletic record, has be-
come Director of Athletics at the college. I
Robert Binger has secured a job as pilot of a trans-continental airplane. He says the
best feature of his job is the large number of stewardesses he meets.
Margaret Fenstermaker and Gertrude Peters are both married and live in the
Luella Myers and Mary Shafer are not at Arcadia anymore but operate a millinery
store in New York City.
Of course, a large town has its "slum" problem. Glenna Peters and Evelyn Fruth
are employed as full-time social workers. Evelyn has, as a cook to help feed the under-
nourished children, a man said to have received his training in a "hamburger" shop in
It was originally planned for Glenna to do the cooking but every one is fearful of her
culinary art since in Chemistry Lab. she got her baking soda and washing soda mixed.
James Kinsley took up art work and is now traveling in Europe as a famed artist.
Please don't cell anybody, but his first famous painting was the result of two of his chil-
dren fighting and upsetting the colors on his picture.
Carolyn Fisher is a famed lecturer in the larger cities. She started this career after
another girl stole her boy friend. After this occurred, she wrote an essay on "Why
Crime Doesn't Pay" and it was so popular she kept on writing. She later branched off
Martha McKee has retired on the money she made from her improvement on the
shorthand system. She cut the time required, to take shorthand in half. It is reported
she thought of this system when she saw some chickens walking around in the mud.
The largest garage and machinery shop in this part of the state is owned and man-
aged by Allan Thomas.
Raymond Bowman is one of the outstanding farmers of the state. His main specialty
is hogs. He became interested in this because of the ton-litter contest in vocational
John Gilliland is in Congress at Washiilgton, D. C. His main policy is "soak the
rich". He won the election because there are more poor people than rich people in his
Esther Schubert decided on marriage instead of a career and is living a happy life on
a farm southeast of Arcadia.
Lloyd Taylor is classed as one of the leading men of his day. As you know, the
country was in bad shape economically because of run-down soil and surplus crops.
Lloyd was working to get wheat that yielded more, but, by an accident, propagated a
variety of wheat that solved the economic problem of the United States. The variety
he introduced is a legume, and has half as much grain as other varieties. Government
decree made this the only wheat to be raised. This built up the soil and did away with
the surplus of wheat.
Please write soon and cell me about yourself and family. Are you still head book-
keeper at the Canadian Oil Company?

Could we but turn back the pages of time to a day in early September, 193 6, we
would behold a familiar scene, yet, somehow, a different one. Up the steps come an un-
usually active group of boys and girls eager to be recognized as Freshmen.
Yes, we were " reen" and timid but We have overcome that. Nothin of reat im-

the value of our high school career. We are striving to be good citizens. As our leaders
we have chosen Ralph Leonard, president, Harold Bayless, vice-president, Richard Bame,
secretary, Dale Huffman, treasurer.
Our class play presented this year was "A Ready-Made Family." XVe are looking
forward to entertaining the Seniors at the Junior-Senior banquet.

OUR FIRST MILESTONE COMPLETED
In the year 1930, I1 group of small children entered school the first time. We passed
through the first eight years of school preparing ourselves for the future.
In 193 8, we entered upon a new field. This was entering high school as Freshmen.
We were called "greenies" and I guess the name suited us for we were pretty green about
high school life. The first thing to encounter was the initiation given us by the Sopho-
mores. We all survived it, although we were embarrassed by the things we had to do,
and then proceeded to organize our class. XVe chose for our officers the following:
President, Paul Plottsg Vice-President, Vincent Nye, Secretary, Nina Bowman, Treasurer,
With the help of our advisor, Mr. Groth, we meet the problems that confront all
Freshmen. We are trying to be good citizens and will strive during our high school
career to become better.

PRELIMINARY HIGH SCHOOL GRADES
Grades seven and eight form a part of the preliminary training ground for high
school. Besides becoming accustomed to the upper grade schedule pupils are also adjust-
ing themselves to more active part in directing their class organizations, in participation
in school programs and in physical education. Pupils from both grades have been
prominent in both vocal and instrumental music. The eighth grade geography class is
conducted as a Travel Club touring cities and regions of the United States.

FOOTBALL DEVELOPS STRENGTH AND
V INSPIRES COOPERATION
Football is a sport that not only develops the physical and mental traits but also
strives to produce good citizens. It inspires fair play with team-mates and opponents.
It makes a player think more for the team than for himself. Football has its place in a
democracy because it is a builder of high morals and clean thinking. It is truly an
American sport because it is played in the United States and no other place in the world.
Our season was started off with a bang when we trekked to McComb on Sept. 23 and
came home on the long end of a 33-0 score.
We were next visited by Mt. Cory with whom we had tied the last two years and the
jinx could not be broken. The score was 0-0.
The next week was our open date so the seniors were allowed to watch one of the
Although we scouted Arlington the week before we were forced to lose after a hard-
fought game to the tune of 12 to 6.
We invaded Liberty's forces and came back with 12 points while they were held
scoreless. A few of our regulars were absent from the game.
Next we took on Mt. Blanchard at Mt. Blanchard and were turned back 20 to 6.
This was probably our best game as to everything but getting touchdowns.
The following week we played host to Rawson and had a field day for everybody on
the squad got to play. The final score was 44-0.
Vanlue came over all set to beat us as they had only lost one game but we put a stop
to their passing attack and pushed over two touchdowns ourselves. 14-0.
For our last game we went to VanBuren and took them into camp to the tune of
18-0 on a rainy day and muddy field.

GIRLS ENIOYED SUCCESSFUL SEASON
The girls thoroughly enjoyed the basketball season. It resulted in winning seven
games and losing three.
Our first game was held at Arcadia with Bloomdale, not a county game. Since this
was our first try, the girls were not very sure of themselves but we won by a score
McComb was our next opponent in the first county game. Being determined to win
and having advantage of playing here, we succeeded in a victory, 50-24.
Playing Mt. Cory the next week was a sad set-back. Although the girls fought hard,
the score, 35-16, showed our loss.
The next game, at Arlington, a comparatively easy one, resulted in a score of 27-9, in
Arcadia girls had never had much luck in beating Liberty, so the next week our girls
set their minds on a hard fight. In the most exciting game of the season, the girls
showed that their practice had not all been in vain and played a winning game with a
score of 25-24.
The next week brought Mt. Blanchard over to Arcadia. The girls battled hard but
yielded to a losing score of 25-19.
Rawson, our next opponent, yielded to us to the tune of 34-25.
Vanlue seemed a rather easy game at first but the last quarter forced the girls to be Cl
little more on their toes, The game ended with Arcadia leading 24-21.
For our last game, Van Buren came over and gave us another set-back. It was close
all the way through, but Van Buren girls won by a score of 14-13.
Thus ended our season for 1938-1939. As we look at our records, we see there was
no stunning success, but through the work and many practices of the girls, and the un-
tiring efforts and enthusiasm brought out by our coach, we gained what success we did

A RECGRD SEASON IN BASKETBALL
The U38-39" basketball team of Arcadia High had a very successful season. Besides
a record of 14 wins against 6 defeats, two trophies were added to the trophy case. The
team showed much team and fighting spirit throughout the season, a season that will be
remembered by the boys for a good many years. E
The season opened with our annual Thanksgiving day opponent, Bloomdale. With
only three practices to start on we took them in an overtime game 19-17.
The next game we played was our Hrst league game and we dropped it in one of the
lowest scoring games of the year. The score was 12 to 9 in McC0mb's favor.
The following week we went to Mt. Cory to try our luck in the second league game.
We scored up 20 points and the game was on ice. Final score was 20 to 13.
The next week was our open date so we played two pre-holiday games taking on Find-
lay High's Reserves and Amsden of Seneca County. Findlay beat us in a close one 19 to
18 but we took Amsden fwith fireworks addedj' IS to 7, holding them scoreless in the
last half. .5 -,
For our lirst game in 1939 we went to Arlington and bested them in a last minute
The following week we played host to Liberty and went on a scoring spree to beat
them oceans to spare, 36 to 18. In
We next entertained Mt. Blanchard and broke their record of not having been beaten.
The game was ours by a good margin, 17-10.
Our next league opponent was Rawson, a scrappy ball team if there ever was one, but
we put the game away to the tune of 24 and 17.
The next game took us to Vanlue where we were forced to defeat by the league

champions by a very narrow margin. The final score was 21-20.
For our last league game we entertained Van Buren and by the aid of their tight zone
defense they were able to beat us 16-10,
Our part in the tournament at Findlay was long but prohtable in that we won a
trophy and also a trip to Carey.
Van Buren again showed us their stuff by shoving us into the consolation bracket in
a one sided game 26 to 14. Our next opponent was Mt. Blanchard whom we took in an
exciting ball game 31-28. Again we showed a last half rush to beat Rawson 32-19.
McComb was our next opponent and we beat them after a hard game, 34 to 15. In the
last game of the tournament we took Mt. Cory, the favorite in the tournament, 36 to 3 S.
We were lucky at Carey in the drawing by being the only "bye" in the tournament.
In our first game we won from Salem 24 to 11. Next came the heartbreaker as we
lost to Lucas 23-22. In the last round we showed our last half rush again and bested
Carey 31-29. '

Varied activities and interests are
important in the development of the
individual. If school meant only hard
study the pupil would become dull and
school would soon be merely a monot-
onous grind for him. The various
activities such as plays, music, clubs,
and parties help to make school more
interesting. They also help the student
to become interested in the activities
which will help to make his later life
of greater consequence.

EDITORS IN THE MAKING
Publishing an annual requires the application of many skills acquired in school and
the learning of new ones. Planning a budget, writing copy, securing advertising, and
selling the finished product are four activities involved.
Last fall seniors were selected to assist in the publication of this year's Arcadian. Paul
Groth and Glenna Peters were chosen as editors. Their job was to make write-ups and
to organize the material for the annual. As it is necessary to get money to publish the
annual, Carolyn Fisher and Lloyd Taylor were chosen as advertising managers to sell
advertising space to the merchants of the surrounding communities. Evelyn Fruth,
Esther Schubert and Mary Shafer as activities editors have performed their duties faith-
fully. Helen Saltzman and Evan Anderson were chosen as sports editors to gather ma-
terial on the athletic activities of the school. The snapshot editors, whose duty it is to
get pictures of school life, were Edna Anderson and Reed Damon. Robert Leonard took
many interesting pictures in addition to his duties as business manager. Walter Moore,
Alma Steiner, Martha McKee, Phyllis Moyer, Alice Steiner were chosen to type the ma-
terial which was sent to the printer. As everyone likes a good joke Betty Jacobs and
Foster Ford were chosen as humor editors to collect humorous incidents which have hap-
pened during the year. And last but not least it was necessary to sell the finished

A CHORUS OF MIXED VOICES
The Mixed Chorus was organized this year to provide music on special occasions.
With a mixed group, there are greater possibilities for a Capella singing than in the single
groups since there is a wider range of tones. This chorus, with a membership of forty
boys and girls, meets every Tuesday.
We appeared first in the P. T. A. program. We presented a half-hour program in
the St. Paul's Evangelical church at Christmas time which was broadcast over Findlay.
Together with the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs we gave a Christmas program in the
auditorium. The chorus sang three numbers at both the Farmers' Institute and the Tri-
School Music Festival.
With Miss Whittlesey's help we have progressed rapidly.
TRI-SCHO OL FESTIVAL
The Tri-School Music Festival on Friday evening, April 14, was held in the McComb
auditorium with the McComb, Van Buren and Arcadia high schools participating. Our
school presented the following program:

"THERE'S A SONG IN THE AIR"
Some people appreciate music more than others, but everyone feels his emotions
stirred when he quietly listens at one o'clock to the harmonious melodies coming from
the auditorium. If the voices are high and sweet, perhaps it is the girls singing "By the
Bend of the River". If they are low, deep, and melodious, it is the boys singing "Carry
Me Back to Old Virginny".
Miss Whittlesey's good nature makes our meetings most interesting and enjoyable and
our pleasure is increased by our participation in programs throughout the year.

DEVELOPING HOME-MAKING, ARTS
The first teachings of American ideals begin in the home. The future of our nation
rests upon the home life of our citizens-to-be. The Future Home-Makers Association
plays an important part in teaching the high school girl to plan an ideal home and to use
her ability in meeting problems of the day.
At the opening of a new school year the following officers were elected: Marilyn

The first event of importance was the initiation of the Freshmen. 'iThe club attended
a district round-up at Bluffton. We were guests of the Agriculture boys at a Wiener
roast and we entertained them with a party in return.
To show our ability, both in cooking and in sewing, We served lunches at noon and
presented a style show in the spring. The club also sponsored an exhibition at the

We are looking forward to a pleasant trip this summer.

LEARNING METHODS OF PROFITABLE FARMING
The livelihood of the American citizen, today, centers around Agriculture. To learn
the principles of better farming and management, and to provide entertainment for
Vocational Agriculture members, the Future Farmers Association was organized.
With Mr. Beane as our adviser, we selected the following officers: president, Virden
Smith, vice president, Lloyd Taylor, secretary, Allan Thomasg treasurer, Evan Anderson,
reporter, John Gilliland.
Our organization was represented in the Potato and Apple judging fete during the
Farmer's Week. We gave a display at both the County Fair and the State Fair. Un-
fortunately, we were losers to Arlington in a Pest Hunt and were their hosts at a ban-
quet. Virden Smith again served as our representative in the Public Speaking contest.
At the Farmers' Institute, the association also sponsored a Corn and Grain Show .
As a money-making project, we are planning a community Clean Up program.

BUSINESS PRACTICES LEARNED AND APPLIED
A country with democratic ideals needs good business men and methods, Our
purpose, therefore, is to learn the principles of our occupation in the business world and
to make a practical application of our knowledge gained in high school.
Our organization is guided by the following officers: Dean Powell, president, Edna
Anderson, vice-president, Marilyn Schubert, secretary, Phyllis Moyer, treasurer, Carol
Schubert, reporter, Miss Exline, adviser.
Presenting a play in chapel and at Parent-Teacher's Meeting and having a party were
two of our activities.

to marry Mr. Moore. She is in love with a college graduate, Bob Baxter. Williana
Winkler, her uncle, brings Jane and her old maid aunt to the Halcyon House in the
Catskill Mountains. XVinkler is in love with an actress, Kitty Benders, but he attempts
to conceal this, because of Aunt Jane's aversion to the stage. Bob disguises as Kitty and
makes things so hot for Winkler- that he agrees to the wedding and all ends happily.

Agnes Martyn returns from a vacation to announce to her family that she is to be
married to Henry Turner, a wealthy widower. Her sister-in-law, Lydia, and her two
children are strongly opposed to the marriage. Henry Turner announces to his children
his proposed marriage to Agnes Martyn and they are likewise opposed. The clever
antics of these children, as well as the spells of Miss Lydia, to forestall the marriage
provide comedy. All ends satisfactorily when Agnes and Henry announce they are
married and the children find they like each other immensely.

Skeet is a mystery-comedy. The mystery begins when a Japanese servant and a
valuable historical rock found by Jack Gordon, an archeologist, disappear. An Indian
and a "mysterious stranger" complicate matters. Then Skeet disappears. When he
comes back, bloody and battered, Jack exposes Aunt Barbara as the culprit and Skeet as
her assistant in the hoax. Judy, Skeet, and Minerva provide much humor-Judy by her
violent dislike of being called "Little Sister," and Skeet and Min by their husband-ar1d-
Wife spats. The "mysterious stranger" turns out to be a geologist looking for "likely oil
territory." The play ends with talk of a midnight fiesta.

There is a strong spirit of cooperation
between the school and the community.
The community realizes that good
schools are essential to its progress and
contributes generously to their support.
This spirit of cooperation has also been
shown by the business men of this and
surrounding communities in their re-
sponse to our call for advertisements.
We truly appreciate their support, sup-
port Without which our efforts would
have been in vain.
