The graduating class of 1949, for the first time in
tihe history of Archbold High School, is publishing an
annual designed to give a full year of sclhool history,
The general plan was to include all events which oc-
curred during the school year. This made it necessary
to plan delivery of the book after the opening of the next
school year, sometime during the fall, So, as the 1949
edition of the BLUE STREAK comes to you, remember
you are receiving a rather complete history of the school
The class of '49 will feel well repaid for their time
if the BLUE STREAK of 1949 helps all of you to recall
the many happy days spent togetiher in the Archbold
Time isg time was. 'Dhe years have come and the
years have gone. To us, the seniors, it has brought an
important milestone in our journey along life's highway,
Time has taken from usg it has also given to us, That
which has been lost can always be recaptured in memory.
Strange as it may seem, the tlhings which are hard to
endure are often pleasant to remember,
We, the Senior Class of 1949, are happy to publish
this edition of the BLUE STREAK. It is our Wish to
give you a general review of all of the things which
were a part of our school life during the year, It is our
fondest wish that familiar faces and scenes in this book
will help you to recall those personal incidents and events
which made your school life a pleasure, As time has
brougt us to the end of our high school journey, we
sadly realize that school days were "wonderful days."

ARCHBOLD HIGH SCHOOL
It is fifty-eight years ago this spring since the
first class graduated from Archbold High School, Since
then about one thousand young men and women have
graduated from here. They have gone to 'all parts of
the world in seeking their places. Some have achieved
fame and fortune in their chosen fields, and this success
has been the school's success, for their achievements re-
flect the part 'played by their school in their journey to
The present elementary building was the only
building on our campus until 1930, when the present
high school building was built, In 1937 the German
Township Schools and the Archbold Schools were con-
solidated into the present district. A new Vocational
Agricultural building was opened in 1948, and last fall
bonds were voted to erect a new fourteen room elemen-
tary building, Work will begin on this new building by
The school has had a continuous growth and in-
dications are that this growth will continue indefinitely,

given untiring effort and unceasing devotion to the task of providing educational advantages for the youth of
today which did not exist in your day. We wish to acknowledge our debt of gratitude to you and the public

Our School Faculty in Various Places, Doing Various Things, and At Various Times
Pupils and teaclhers make up a. major part of a
school, But there is 'another group of workers whose
presence is equally important, Many Fhours of hard
work are necessary to have everything in readiness for
aa, new day of school each morning, A clean building
is an extra incentive in attacking the day's work.
The most popular place in our school is the cafe-
teria. Good food keeps us going and doing our best,
We are all very appreciative of the efforts of our Culi-
nary Artists and we honestly and truthfully feel that
there are none better.
The bus drivers have Uhe thankless task of trans-
porting several ihundred pupils to and from school in all
kinds of weather, The problems encountered by these
men are beyond all imagination in scope and number,
The combined efforts of these groups play an ex-
ceedingly important 'part in the daily routine of our
:Thanks to all of you for the part you played in
our years at Archbold High School,

1949 Seniors --- Believe It Or Not
Senior Class History
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In the year 1937, there were 38 meek, timid little
tots who entered Archbold Public School for the first
time. In the second and third grades we were still dar-
ling little tots.
Much to our surprise in the fourth grade we lost
five and gained four pupils, namely, Shirley Bernath,
Ruth Springer, Ralph Lugbill and Franky Hernandez,
In the fifth grade we gained Marjorie Waidelich and Fon-
tabel Stuckey, In the sixth grade we lost three students
and gained one, namely, Sue Ellen Soles.
Then came a long trip to the Thigh sohool building,
In the seventh and eighth grades there were thir-
In our Freshman year there were seven from Zone
and five from Elmira, plus three others from various
schools, September 28, 1946, fifty-three pupils were in-
itiated into A. H, S.
Our Junior year was an exciting yearg We all
looked forward to the Junior and Senior Banquet, Pick-
ing out our class rings and pins that would bind us to
the A. H, S, forever was thrilling for us, 'Dhen came
the Junior play, FRESH AIR, which made everyone
laugh till their sides hurt,
At last the year came when we were Seniors, On
December tenth We received our long awaited pictures
taken by JimSellers, Our last play, "THE PROFESSOR
GOES HAYWIREQ' was given May 5 and 6.
On May 17, we were ushered into commencement
---finally receiving our diplomos.
With mixed feelings we leave this institution, only
hoping that the classes to come will enjoy it as much
as we have. We now have confidence to face bhe many
obstacles which will confront us.
In the month of September, of the year 1937, a
class was born without fanfare or recognition. It started
its life, which was soon to be known the world around
for its remarkable achievements. Then, on May 17,
1949, it happened, When this class had obtained the
,highest position yet achieved by 'a senior class, it started
out to set new records in fields no other class had ever
dared to attempt, but was cut short with its deatlh.
Left to mourn is the Junior class, the Sophomore
class, and the Freshman class, The first class mentioned
will succeed the late Senior class but will in no way be
expected to fill the position achieved by the late Seniors,
When the first grade class of 1937 was born they
were yet fairly undeveloped but as this class grew and
grew it advanced higher and higher in this big, wide
world. Not only did it grow in size, but also in the realm
of wisdom and social ability. It seems that the Senior
Class of 1949 could be unsurpassed in athletic, musical
and educational abilities.
Although they died from this activity, yet may
they live forever in the memories and the purifying in-
fluences that are left behind to the future Seniors of
Archbold High School.
The funeral service was held on May 17, 1949, in
the Archbold High School, where they had spent the
last six years of their life, Attendance at the service
Was by invitation only and all friends were requested to
attend, bearing flowers, and gifts,

CLASS PROPHEC Y
Yesterday, May 17, 1974, the high school graduating class of 1949 met in the high school cafeteria. There
we were served a scrumptuous meal prepared by Ella Beck, who is still chief cook and manager of the high school
cafeteria. Ella looks older now than she did twenty-five years ago, but her cooking is still of the same champion-
As we looked over this group of '49ers, we noticed that some of them had abundant amounts of gray hair,
whereas others had almost no hair at all, We really made a sophisticated looking picture,
After we finished tlhe meal, We sat and talked of the things that we all seemed to hold as the high points
in our lives, our high school days. Then Mr, Spengler, our very well-liked class advisor and our banquet toast-
master, asked us if we would like to hear each member of the class give a brief summary of his life since he had
graduated from A,H.S, We all agreed wholeheartedly that this was an excellent idea, Here are some of the things
that were related to us.
Dick Bernath, our first speaker of the t49ers, seems to have a very strange problem, Dick has become a
very successful dairy farmer and has compiled quite a fortune. His problem is, how can he will each of his sons a
million dollars when he has only two million dollars and three sons, He is thinking about consulting Einstein
for tlhe solution.
Shirley Bernath seemed to be quite successful in her line or business. She is the head of the General Motors
office in Detroit. She has twenty girls to tell what to do, She seemed to be enjoying herself,
Jackie Brodbeck told us she is now working out in Hollyvwood, She is one the famous star's favorite hair
dressers, She had been Working in Toledo until M,G.M, hired her. She says she is very happy, but did anyone
ever see Jackie when she wasn't happy?
Glen Burkholder was the next eager speaker to take the floor, Glen has become a very successful farmer
and he is thinking seriously of retiring to let his seven sons farm his land, Glen plans to raise racoon dogs for a.
Then there was complete silence, 3, very cultured looking gentleman got up to address our class, You
guessed itg the gentleman was Verlin Eash, Verlin, well known the world over as Irving Berlin 11, has written 103
songs that have become popular. Later in the evening Verlin told us that he made the most important decision of
his life when he chose between pole climbing and song writing,
The next person to address his classmates was Bill Fankhauser. Bill found it difficult to start talking be-
cause his sides were shaking with laughter from a joke that Ralph had told him. Bill, a nationally known drafts-
man, has recently drawn plans for what is to be the largest and most modern building in New York City. Bill said
his weakness is the sam-e as always, beautiful women!!!
Fred Fetlhers, a very prominent man in the field of Industrial Arts, was called upon next. Fred is now head
of the Industrial Arts department at Ohio State University. Fred really enjoys life and he has invited Ralph Lug-
bill down to his 'home in Columbus for a week next summer, Fred says that he wants to catch up on the latest
jokes and Ralph seems to know a lot of them,
Esbher Fleming relayed to us that she is now running a beauty salon in Toledo with a staff of 20 girls under
her. This salon is strictly for the upper crust. She is still the old maid which she predicted she would be.
Then tlhe air rang witlh a series of chuckles as Harold Flory got up to talk, Harold said that he would tell
a funny story h'ad the meeting been scheduled to last a week, but he feared that time would run out on him if
he would try to tell a story at this one-day meeting, Harold has become manager of the largest grocery store in
Chuck Gautshe was the next of the male speakers to address this classmates, Chuck has become the
C,S.F,O, fClhampion Scientific Farmer of Ohiol. Since Chuck has become so proficient in his chosen profession, he
has had a big influence in making the Ohio farm system progress,
Helen Grieser has just recently returned from China with her husband and their two children, They have
been doing social work there and expect to return in the near future.
Pauline Klopfenstein married a successful farmer and they have a home on a 120 acre farm and she' seems
to be very happy with her husband and four children,
Veldia Ledyard relayed to us that she is now a full fledged bookkeeper. She is keeping books for her hus-
band and it seems that they have all profit, and it is no mistake on the part of the bookkeeper,
Then a very handsome and dignified gray haired man got up to address his classmates. That's rightg it
was Ralph Dugbill. Ralph, a very clean cut sort of individual, has become a very successful and a very well liked
businessman, He has been the president or the Livestock Dealers Association for the last ten years, Ralph said
that he had attained his life's ambition when he made Verlin Eash laugh at one of his jokes,
Sam Oyer, chief mechanic in Ford's Detroit factory, was next to reveal his success. Sam acquired this job
last year after having run his own private machine shop for ten years, For a hobby Sam is collecting old cars,
and he now has quite a collection.
Then Dale Quillet, a, youthful looking fellow, rose to tell about himself, Dale has turned down several pro-

Basketball is a tradition in the Archbold High School. The game started here in 1910 and
it has thrived ever since, Teams from here have won more than their share of victories, and have
brought many trophies back as the spoils of their battles. Arohbold teams have gone beyond the
County Tournament 17 times in the past 25 years, Twice they have gone to the State Tourna-
mentsg in 1924, dropping the State Championship game to Bellepoint by a 23 to 20 score,
This year's team won the County Championship by beating Metamora 50 to 25. Metamora,
however won the League title,
Archbold's Junior High team won the County title for its second straight year, and hasn't
lost to a county team during the past two years.
The Reserve team was also undefeated in County play during the past season. These fac-
tors indicate continued strong material for the next several years.
The team loses seven of its members by graduation,

moved to the District Tournament at Defiance, Both teams were awarded trophies for their efforts, and thus
Coaclh Hornish and the boys brought Archbold its first baseball trophy. Congratulations to them.
This spring the boys won their first tournament game, defeating Chesterfield 16 to 3, They lost their
chance 'to go to the District when they lost 'a 13 inning game to Delta by a 10 to 6 score.
Art Kleck and Dale Quillet formed a good battery for the team, Lewis Haas and Clare Grime were other
members of the pitching staff,
Prospects for next year look fairly good with a good share of this year's team coming back, Art Kleck,
Dale Quillet and Tom Spradlin will be graduating and will be hard to replace.

Many years ago we started our careers in
the Archbold Public School, As the time comes
for us to leave it seems only a few days ago
that we started. Several times we've had to
work hard on special occasions and yet we
had our fun too, Being Seniors we realize that
bitter and sweet comes together,
As we have gone thru our sclhool years, we
learned that our teachers were happy to 'help
and direct us.
We realize as we approach our graduation
that we soon will be going on alone, we will
no longer have leaders to depend on because
we, also, will be leaders,
As our final thanks We wish, to express our
deep appreciation to our teachers, parents
and friends who have made our stay at Arch-
bold Sclhool a pleasant one.
And, So, Farewell.
