We have made a few changes and hope that they meet with your approval. As memory fails, the yearbook will serve as a reminder of the past school days. This year the annual sale contest was among eight teams, headed by high school teachers with Seniors as co-captains. The win- ner of the contest was the team sponsored by Mr. Blauvelt, assisted by Nina Lewis. The Seniors held a party for the winning team. The high salesmen were Derol Painter, Arvid Wea- ver, Sharon Stall, and janis Anderson. We are happy to announce that this year we sold more annuals than any year previously. This was accomplished under the management of Mary Weaver and Ron Stall.

Class History September, l942, found forty-one starry-eyed kids, slowly and cautiously pass through the doors of the institution of learning, Arcadia Local School. The dread- ful thought of leaving our parents and our families, to begin this unknown, new, and 'exciting adventure was smothered by the dream that was about to become a reality, at last we had grown up enough to start school. We glided through our first six years with growing anticipation of junior high and eventually senior high school. We participated in the operetta, "Peter Rabbit," which found us before a large audience for the very first time in our short school career. Much to the liking of all the students, we had our own lower-grade assem- bly, and we were especially happy when our own grade got to perform. ln the sixth grade we again appeared in the school operetta, "Christmas in Mexico," with three of the leading parts going to Harold Nye, Barbara Cook, and Lewis Campbell. This Christmas program, which was a wondrous thrill for everyone, was directed by our music teacher, Mrs. Payne. Finally, our first six years were completed. September, l949, admitted thirty-five students into junior high. During these two short years, we learned, in what some- times seemed the hard way, to get to our classes on time and, on the whole, to act like pre-high school stu- dents, preparing to face the duties and responsibilities that would be ours in a few years. We learned some- thing of the principles of our high school discipline and haw it was put into operation, to make our lives at school more pleasant and happy ones. Our achievements were not all scholastic, we were privileged to have a few of our boys play on the Junior High team. Carol Kieffer represented us as cheerleader of the Junior High team. We also had members in the newly organized band and the traditional orchestra. The more musical members, Mary Weaver, Mary England, Carol Reid, and a few others, belonged. Drawing near the end of our eighth grade we took the difficult Eighth Grade State Test. However, they did not prove too difficult for Nina Lewis, for she ranked number one in the county, quite an honor! , With just a wee perspective of what lay ahead and with the willingness and curiousity to advance, we en- tered high school with a rousing initiation. We miracu- lously managed to plod through the "Greenie" stage and then settled down to the tasks that were before us. For the first time we elected class officers to lead us through our school activities. They were: President, Harold Nye, vice-President, Nina Lewis, secretary, Joe Steyer, treasurer, Jerry Gaertner, reporter, Lewis Camp- bell. This year we were allowed a voice in the Student Council and with great pride we sent to this organiza- tion Carol Kieffer and Lewis Campbell as our spokes- men. We chose as our motto: "Patience is the Key- stone to Success," our colors, green and gold, and our flower, the yellow tea rose. In the late spring, we blend- ed our voices with the rest of the high school students in the "Gypsy Rover." Again our musical ability beamed through with Mary England and Lewis Campbell 'captur- ing two of the solo parts. Alice Beauty and Dress Shoppe 4l l South Main Street Findlay, Ohio As sophomores, we again elected officers: President, Harold Nye, vice-President, Nina Lewis, secretary, Jerry Gaertner, treasurer, Joe Steyer, reporter, Mary Weaver. lnitiating the Freshman was one of our fun-packed ad- ventures. We were also greatly thrilled when Carol Kieffer was elected varsity cheerleader. She proved her capability, by being re-elected in her junior and senior years. To make us even prouder, six of our boys re- ceived varsity letters in both football and basketball. To crown our junior year was our junior play, "The Little Dog Laughed" directed by our dramatics instruct- or, Mrs. Sharninghouse. In the late spring we sponsor- ed the Junior-Senior Banquet, held in Findlay at the Elks Club. Gaining more courage we took on part of the responsibility of producing the year-book. We elect- ed as our officers: President, Harold Nye, vice-President, Nina Lewis, secretary, Mary Dicken, treasurer, Pat Butler, reporter, Bill Peters. Mary Weaver and Bill Peters became members of the Hancock County Chap- ter of the National Honor Society. August 3l, l953, started another school year, but it was just a little different than the previous ones. This was the final year, the end! From the large first grade class of forty-one we had dwindled down to the smaller number of twenty-nine, with only fourteen of the orig- inal members still together. For our last year, as in the years before, we obtained the help and guidance of our wonderful sponsor, Mrs. Sharninghouse. For the last time we chose carefully our officers: President, Harold Nye, vice-President, Nina Lewis, secretary, Mary Dick- en, treasurer, Pat Butler, reporter, Bill Peters. Along with the juniors we took full responsibility of producing the "Arcadian." Around Christmas time we went on tour with our Christmas play, "Come Ye to BethIehem", going to Mt. Blanchard, Vanlue, and Fostoria. We breezed through our first semester and started on the last lap. For some, this time of year was a time for relaxation, but for many it did not prove to be so. We participated in the All-County Music Festival, held at Cory-Rawson and everyone's eyes danced, the eve- ning of the program, when Lewis Campbell had a solo part in the Boys' Glee. Lewis Campbell and Arlene Walsh also entered, as soloists, in a contest at McComb, where they competed against members of other schools. The newly formed Senior Trio was also an entry from Arcadia. The Trio was composed of Pat Butler, Carol Reid, and Arlene Walsh. Setting a precedent, we presented our senior play, "Our Miss Brooks" on May 7, with Sharlet Cook por- traying the loveable and witty, Miss Brooks. May l5 we were the guests of honor at the Junior-Senior Ban- quet held at the Civic-Nic-Nac in Fostoria. Setting on- other precedent we had Baccalaureate on Sunday after- noon, May 23 and the some evening held our Com- mencement. At last the moment that we have dreamed of and planned for, has come. We do not know to what to look forward or from what to shy away,' but we leave, determined to do our best and to try always to make our best even better. Coldren Funeral Home 205 West Sandusky Street Phone 600 Findlay, Ohio The Last Will and Testament of the Senior Clo s of I954 We, the members of the class of l954, of Arcadia High School, residing in and around the village of Arcadia, County of Hancock, in the Buckeye State, Ohio, being of graduat- ing age and unsound and indisposing mind and memory, but mindful of the fact that time marches on, do make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby re- voking, and annulling any and all wills made by us heretofore. First we direct that all our just and unjust debts, l. O. U.'s., and grudges, be paid out of our estate as follows: The Senior class wills to the juniors the ability to come through with their English lesson in time for class, To the Sophomores we leave our ability to produce Comedies and Christmas plays. Can you do it? ,T To theyfreshmen we leave our ability to keep our-grades just high enough to pass. Now those poor boys won't have to study so hard. james Blake wills his old "Chevy" to David Veliquette. There's another loose nut behind the wheel. Ralph Brooks wills his broad shoulders to jack Eisaman. Don't get lost jack. Pat Butler wills her harsh library voice to Ronald Stall. Peace and quiet in the library at last. Lewis Campbell wills his flat-top haircut to jim Woodward. Now jim has a place to carry his extra books. Carolyn Clark wills her bottle of "Light and Bright" to Barbara Good. This doesn't leave an orange tint Barbara. Barbara Coffman, Maxine Dreisbach, and Nina Lewis will their jobs in the school store to any capable juniors. Hmmm! Looks like we are going to have to fire the script writer. Sharlet Cook wills her honey-toned voice to Ernestine Rice. Think it'll help? Mary Dicken wills her shy ways to Pat Reid. Don't take it so hard, john. Florence Ecker wills her job of washing the dish towels from the cafeteria to Ellen Heinze. Get 'em clean, Ellen. Glen Fruth wills his ability to pronounce words to Raymond Lazenby. Lets see some results, Ray. jerry Gaertner wills his ability to touch the Reid's Sohio Service Arcadia, Ohio rim of the basket to Bobby Farrell. Lets see them block your shots now, Bob. Bobby Graham wills his horse and buggy to janet Shiley. Now janet doesn't need to worry about running out of gas. Hilda Grine wills her job at the cigar counter in Gallaher's to Ray Kuhn. There go all the profits. john Howe wills his spelling ability to Bill Switzer. Bill doesn't know what he's in for.

SECOND ROW: Rhoda Perkins, Betty Bowman, Nancy Anderson, Paula Reinhard, Dale Bowman, Duane Hilersxxx This year the Junior Red Cross carried on another successful year under the supervision of Mr. Charley Groth and the two student leaders, Pot Butler and Bill Armbrecht. Each class was represented by one or two members. These representatives packed boxes for their class to send overseas for Christmas. Upon payment of any small donation each person received a pin or a member- ship card. During the summer we carried on a drive to raise funds for the tornado victims in the vicinity. This drive was successful. Grenda X . ,lil Joe Woodward, Joe Anne Moore Marlene Steyer, Mickey Crawford, John Peters, Becky Groth, Diane Tommy Moyer. We are hoping to have more successful years in the future. Our school library was remodeled to provide a large reading room this year. The purpose of this was to fur- nish a place for reference work. The room was equipped with choirs ond two large tables, a librarian's desk, and proper lighting. The library staff consisted of five Seniors: Carol Reid, Mary Weaver, Pat Butler, Carol Kieffer, and Janet Nunn. The four Juniors were Ronald Stall, Tom Bickel, David Corbin, and James Woodward. Mrs. Sharninghouse was the teacher-librarian. Pat Butler was her assistant.
