THE BLUE TRE AK 19 4 8 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS ARCHBOLD HIGH SCHOOL ARCHBOLD, OHIO EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ASSISTANT EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER FACULTY ADVISER RICHARD SCHANTZ VERLIN EASH RALPH LUGBILL J. H. SPENGLERIntroduction The graduating class of 1949, for the first time in the history of Archbold High School, is publishing an annual designed to give a full year of school 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 year 1948-1949. 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 together in the Archbold Public Schools. 2Foreword Time is; time was. The 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 us; it has also given to us. That which has been lost can always be recaptured in memory. Strange as it may seem, the things 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.” Engraving.......... Fort Wayne Printing and Engraving Fort Wayne.

Your rest is well earned and may you receive much satisfaction from the know- ledge that you have played a prominent part in shaping the lives of many of the people of this community. 5ARCHBOLD HIGH SCHOOL OUR 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 success. 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 early summer. The school has had a continuous growth and in- dications are that this growth will continue indefinitely. 6ADMINISTRATION 7BOARD OF EDUCATION George Rupp; Jacob Spengler, Supt. of Schools; Owen Rice, Clerk; Edwin Murbach, Pres.; John Leupp, Vice Pres.; Peter Rupp, Arthur Fagley The Graduating Class of 1949 wishes to pay its respects to the Board of Education of our school. As we are graduating from high school we realize that we have had the advantages of a fine school building and its excellent facilities. We do not often pause to ask who makes these things possible, but we are sincere in our ex- pression of thanks and appreciation for the fine school we have been privileged to attend. We know you have 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 whom you represent. As we leave you we simply say, “Thanks a lot”. 3TtlfJTM] J.

But there is another group of workers whose presence is equally important. Many hours of hard work are necessary to have everything in readiness for a 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 the thankless task of trans- porting several hundred 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 school. Thanks to all of you for the part you played in our years at Archbold High School. 15Cooks Janitors Ella Beck, Mary Grime, Christine Grime Earl Bourquin, Art Taylor Bus Drivers Art Liechty, Earl Bourquin, Garfield Gigax, Wilmer Rupp, Orville Rueger Walter Breniser, Harold Fleming 16SENIORS 17Senior Class Officers ARTHUR KLECK Basketball.

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 Bemath, 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 high school building. In the seventh and eighth grades there were thir- ty-eight students. 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 year; 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. Then 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 HAYWIRE,” 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 the many obstacles which will confront us. 27Class Obituary 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 death. 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. 28Last 'Will and Testament We, the Senior Class of nineteen hundred and forty-nine, being sound of mind and body, leave the following will upon our departure from this life at Archbold High School.

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- ship calibre. 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 the 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 Bemath, our first speaker of the 49ers, 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 the 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 Hollywood. 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 pastime. Then there was complete silence, a very cultured looking gentleman got up to address our class. You guessed it; 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 modem building in New York City. Bill said his weakness is the same as always, beautiful women!!! Fred Fethers, 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. Esther 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 the air rang with a series of chuckles as Harold Flory got up to talk. Harold said that he would tell a funny story had 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 Chicago. Chuck Gautshe was the next of the male speakers to address his classmates. Chuck has become the C.S.F.O. (Champion Scientific Farmer of Ohio). 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. Velda 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 right; it was Ralph Lugbill. 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- fessional baseball offers to go into his chosen profession, dairy farming. He has a herd of 200 registered Guernsey cattle that have taken three national dairy show prizes thus far. Virginia Rufenacht told us her husband had been elected Mayor of Pettisville in the last November election. Besides being the “First Lady of Pettisville’’, she has fulfilled her lifetime ambition by running a hostess house. Howard Rupp, one time of our basketball team, was next to be heard. Back in his high school days Howard was commonly known as "Minnie’’ because of his small stature, but behold, Howard has suddenly taken root and has grown to be 6’1“. He is a carpenter by trade, and, I might add, a very good one. Dick Reigsecker, President of the National Truckers Association, was the next jolly speaker to blow off steam. Dick hasn’t changed a bit. He has more good jokes than Carter has pills. Dick is fast becoming known as the world’s top humorist. In spite of his popularity as ahumorist, Dick still feels happiest when he is driving a truck. Leon Rupp, still a rather quiet individual, was next to talk of his accomplishments. Leon is quite proud of his well-kept hundred acre farm north of Archbold. He has a very happy and contented family and he is very much devoted to them. Leroy Rupp, a clerk in a large furniture store in Toledo, spoke to his classmates. After graduating from high school. Leroy farmed for a few years, but finally settled down as a clerk in a furniture store. He is a very energetic person and is quite concerned about his family’s happiness Ruth Rychener has long since become a graduate nurse and is now a medical missionary in Africa. She has been very successful in all things. 30CLASS PROPHECY Continued Valetta Sauder is well known about Archbold as one of the best accountants. Ever since graduation she has been trying to build her education in bookkeeping and has been very successful. We all knew that if she wants something she will get it. Sue Scales, o r “Brain", flew down to Archbold from her estate in Alaska in her private plane and is going on to her other estate in Bermuda. By the way, her occupation is commercial advertising and chasing the men from her doorstep. Weldon Schang, (he next person to speak, seems to have changed quite a bit. He seems to have taken a more serious slant on life and is doing quite well for himself. Yveidon still likes to have a good time with the fellows, and has become well known as an expert ra lio and television repairman. Then Dick Schantz, an outstanding businessman, addressed his classmates. Dick, always reliable, has made some remarkable contributions to the business world. His exceptionally pleasing personality and his good judg- ment have helped him to gain the title of B.B.M.A. (Best Businessman of America). Dick has many triends and really gets a kick out of life. Charlene Short told us she had succeeded in her ambitions of becoming a beautician and a wife. First she worked for Madame Esther, as a hair dresser, for three months and then she quit to get married. Now she "Bobs” all her children’s hair. Then Don Short was called upon to speak. Don has become a very successful farmer and has become well- known for his highly productive acres west of Archbold. He has done quite a bit of agricultural experimenting and has increased his production and prestige by doing so. Then a peculiar, but familiar laugh rent the air as Gene Short rose. Gene, a noted poultryman in Fulton County, seems to be doing quite well in his chosen profession and has amassed a neat fortune. Gene’s favorite hobby is eating. Jeanette Short, with her ambition to do nothing at all, has not succeeded for she has to keep house for her husband but she seems quite content. The next of the ’49ers to speak was Walter Short. Walter, rather shy in his speech, but enthusiastic in his profession, farming, has purchased two 80 acre farms within the last two years. Walter has a splendid family of six and he takes great pride in making them haapy. The next to sound off was Phil Siegel, once a prominent girl-chaser. He no longer has to chase girls; he is manager of a fifty-girl office force in a General Motors plant. He is very happy in this position and spends almost all of his time winking at the typists. Tom Spradlin the guy with the catching personality, was the next gentleman to take the floor. Tom a scream in a clown suit, has done quite a bit of professional clowning tor several big league baseball teams. Tom picks up a neat $10,000 per year doing this and he enjoys it immensely. Ruth Springer, our most fickle minded girl, has become a successful marriage counselor in Columbus. Though no one ever thought she would make up her mind, she finally did marry and is making a huge success of it too!!! After graduation Betty Storrer started nurses training but went for five weeks and quit to get married. Her son turned out to be quite a “genius’’. Fontabel Stuckey is now the head nurse of the “MARGIE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL” here in Archbold. She also is married and her eldest son Don, Jr. is studying tobe a doctor. Lois Traut, our mist athletic girl, was making good money playing with an all girls’ basketball team. She was their doctor in case of injury. As I said before, she was, until Ben finally graduated from college, then they got married. Now she is living on a farm while he runs the Elmira Elevator. Then John Twiss, owner of the Paramount Theater in Toledo, spoke to us. John, a sharp businessman, pur- chased the theater in 1970 and is now one of the richest men of Toledo. John likes nice automobiles and has’eight new ones parked in his garage at all times, one foe each week day and two for Sunday. Marjorie Waidelich was working in the bank up town for some time until Chuck became so successful he needed some one to balance his books. So she married the guy and seems very happy with her wealth. Barbara V’erder, our iirst engaged and married girl, and our first mother in the class, is living on the Rupp farm. She has quite a bit of help in feeding the chickens as she has two pair of twins. Doris Wvse and her husband returned the same lime as Helen G. from China. They have been doing social work together. She has three children. The oldest is studying to be a minister. John Zimmerman, manager of the A P chain stores of Ohio was the next healthy looking 49er to speak. John, always a good sport, received loud applause when he admitted that his greatest weakness is women. Though he is forty-three, he has never had a date with a woman. He is thinking seriously of asking a Fulton County farmer whether he can take his twice-married daughter to a movie next week. Art Kleck informed us that he had been pitching for the New York Yankees up until last year, but had to retire because of his age. He is now ba k in Archbold ruining his dad’s restaurant. As for Beanie Grieser. she hasn’t been doing much work as she has been traveling around the country and after each trip she goes about to different schools and tells her experiences.

C ’ SfFFPrtZM' 1 fJm Scenes from a wonderful trip to Washington, D. C. by the senior class of 1949. Who of the group will ever forget the many thrilling incidents which arose during the trip? The wild ride to Deshler. “I’m feeling faint; ’ the beautiful train, the Columbian; the Strataliner; Breakfast on the train; the first glimpse of the nation s capi- tal; the many wonders beheld in Washington; the Annapolis Hotel; the Washington-St. Louis baseball girr.e: the moonlight cruise on the Potomac River; Mount Vernon; Dinner at the George Mason Hotel in Alexandria; sleeping on the train; getting, oh so tired; the long trip home; and finally, the grand feeling of getting back home safe and sound. The class of 1949 feels that the trip was very much worth while and worth much more than the actual cost in money. It was a trip which they will never forget. 33BACCALAUREATE SERVICES Sunday Evening, May 15, at Eight O’clock Musical Prelude ................... Joyce Burkholder Processional ......................

Mr. Farber, Ben Young, Sara Louise Short, Marlene Burkholder STUDENT COUNCIL The school year 1948-1949 saw the birth of a Student Council in the Archbold High School. Mr. Burkholder and several senior students laid the groundwork for theCouncil. After a constitution was adopted delegates were elected from all the classes and officers were elected. Arthur Kleck was president, Ben Young, vice president, and Sue Ellen Scales secretary and treasurer. The Council held regular meetings twice each month and special ones as needed. The Council soon made its presence felt in the general school life. It devised a very good plan for handling the cafeteria line, and at Christmas time they decorated a very fine tree in the main corridor. Several other decisions regarding policies on certain matters were enacted by the Council. All in all this new organization made a fine start and much is expected from it in years to come. 52Archette Staff Back Row: Esther Fleming, Charlene Short Ruth Springer, Barbara Werder, Verleen Grieser, Jeanette Short, Dale Quillet Middle Row: Virginia Rufenacht, Pauline Klopfenstein, Helen Grieser Doris Wyse, Velda Ledyard, Weldon Schang First Row: Jackie Brodbeck, Marjorie Waidelich. Mrs. Keim, Sam Oyer The Archette Staff of 1949 is proud of theii ohievement at the Ninth Annual Convention of the North- western Ohio District Journalism Association, which was held at Bowling Green State University, April 30, 1949. Most of the Journalism class, accompanied by their adviser, Mrs. Keim, attended the convention and were’proud to receive an “excellant” certificate reward. The highest point average received by any school paper entered, was 258 points. The “Archette” received 241. The Journalism class has enjoyed putting out their paper. Even though good hard work was involved, they certianly had their fun doing it. Mrs. Keim has been a wonderful advisor, and a good inspiration to every ’ jour- nalist inthe class. The following students are on the Archette Editor- in Chief —Samuel Oyer Assistant Editor — Ruth Springer Business Manager — Charlene Short Elementary Editor — Marjorie Waidelich Stencil — Betty Storrer, Virginia Rufenacht Reporters — Helen Grieser, Verleen Grieser, Pauline Fred Fether, Weldon Sohang.

The band, the cho- rus, the ensembles, and the various other groups all performed creditably during the year. The vocal quartet won a number one rating in the State, the band won a Superior rating in District competition at Ada, and an Excel- lent rating in the State finals at Springfield. The chorus won an Excellent rating in District competition at Ada losing out by only one vote for a number One rating. The various groups made many appearances during the school year, playing for any number of organiza- tions and groups whenever called upon. The band playedat numerous homecomings during the summer. The music department suffers heavily by graduation, losing many members who will be hard to replace However, enough experienced members remain to form the neucleus of good musical groups in the future.Junior Band Front Row: Bruce Werder, Donn Bernath, Dean Rupp. Joan Huffman, Tom Fankhauser, Suzanne Stuckey, Stanley Buehrer, Philip Buehrer, Teddy Lovejoy Back Row: Hattie Lou Clingaman, Joan Gigax, Maureen Rupp, Janice Peters, Sondra Miller, Vee Schlatter, Freddy Gearing, Ronny Fielitz.

Evelyn Wyse, Gwendolyn Croninger, Miss Felsted, Dorothy Beck, Eunice Traut, Carolyn Gautsche The Future Homemakers of America, a part of, or associated with the Home Economics department, is a very important unit in the Archbold High School. This group, under the direction of Miss Felsted, is devoted to the study of making home life continually better and more interesting. MissFelsted and the girls have been very helpful in many school projects. They have given noble service in the athletic department in laundering all of their uniforms. They have been especially helpful at banquets, commencement, plays and other school functions. The school and faculty are indeed grateful to Miss Felsted for her able assistance. The FHA has regular meetings, a part of which are devoted to work and a part to recreation. They plan extensive work for the fair this fall. No department in school has as much to offer which will be put into every- day use in later life by the girls who study Home Economics.FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA The Archbold High School chapter of the FFA has been a very active one during its two years of exist- ance. Mr. Galloway and the boys have done exceedingly well in the classroom and with their projects. They have excelled in the matter of livestock judging and in Parliamentary drill procedure. They have brought back to the school, both District and State honors for their fine achievements. The school may indeed be proud of the work of this department. In school and community life they have played an important part as they have given generously of their time and effort whenever called upon. The Ag. department made eighteen new tables for the park and made a set of hurdles for the Track team. For the Athletic Boosters Club they made a number of basketball backboards, which were installed in various locations in Arch bold, Elmira and at Lugbill’s.

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. Archbold teams have gone beyond the County Tournament 17 times in the past 25 years. Twice they have gone to the State Tourna- ments; 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. 1948-1949 SCORES ARCHBOLD OPPONENT ARCHBOLD OPPONENT 52 West Unity 31 30 Fayette 28 '1 Stryker 42 25 Metamora 33 23 Wauseon 45 47 Napoleon 41 47 Lyons 32 47 Pettisville 23 38 Fayette 17 30 Montpelier 25 46 Pettisville 24 35 Stryker 25 32 Chesterfield 23 38 Delta 47 40 Jewell 31 COUNTY TOURNAMENT 25 Ridgeville 36 41 Fayette 30 31 Wauseon 30 26 Delta 20 22 Swanton 18 50 Metamora 25 35 (OT) Scott 32 DISTRICT TOURNAMENT 62 Fulton 49 29 Vaughnsville 42 72 Varsity0 Individuals Top Row: Bill Fankhauser, Clare Grime, Art Kleck Middle Row: Richard Schantz, Richard Riegsecker, James Quillet, Ralph Lugbill Bottom Row: John Clair, Dale Quillet, Wayne Nafziger 73Basketball 1948-1949 WEST UNITY—-Here Nov. 19.

Both teams advanced to the finals and because of a lack of time no Championship game was played as both teams moved to the District Tournament at Defiance. Both teams were awarded trophies for their efforts and thus Coach 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.

Polite Richard Polite 86Senior Farewell 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 s;aool years, v c learned that o..r ccaehers were happy La neip 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 School a pleasant one. And, So, Farewell.
