OHIO EDITOR-IN-CHIEF - - MAYNARD SAUDER ASSISTANT EDITOR - - DONALD WYSE BUSINESS MANAGER - ' - IOHN CLAIR FACULTY ADVISER - - - I. H. SPENGLER INTRODUCTION The graduating class of l950 is following the plan established last year by the class of 1949 in bringing you a complete history of the school year l949- l950. This made it necessary that you receive your Annual sometime this fall instead of in the spring. The class of 1950 hopes that you will like their Annual. If it brings to you the joys that come from recalling school day memories its publishers will feel well paid and that their labors were not in vain. FOREWORD Time truly does fly. It seems but yesterday since we entered high school and now it is time for us to depart. To us, the seniors, it brings to a close the most important era of our lives. It is with mixed feelings of emotion that we depart from our Alma Mater. We realize that it has asked much of us, but it has given more. We want always to remember our high school days, because the future can only enrich those experiences so dear to all of us. It is with these thoughts in mind that the Class of 1950 brings you this edition of the Blue Streak. It is our wish to review all of the things which were a part of our school life during the year. We hope that the familiar scenes and faces will help you recall the many happy hours you have spent in school life. As time writes finis to our school days, we sadly contemplate the future, realizing that school days were truly the richest experiences in our lives. ENGRAVING - - GRAPHIC ARTS CORP. Toledo. Ohio PHOTOGRAPHY - - SELLERS STUDIO Archbold, Ohio PRINTING - - ADRIAN COLLEGE PRESS Adrian, Michigan BINDING - - HUGO KALMBACHER 6: SON , Toledo, Ohio DEDICATION We, the graduating class of 1950, dedicate this annual to the old and to the new. We wish to dedicate a portion of it to our former elementary building H1888-19505 and the part it and its teachers played in shaping the lives of hundreds of young men and Women of this community. We Wish to dedicate a portion of it to the new elementary building to be opened this fall. We sin- cerely hope that it too will continue to wield a Worthy influence on the lives of hundreds ot our youth, and that our democratic American Way of Lite shall be forever maintained. FORMER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 1888-1950 NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SEPTEMBER 1950 '-"vw WX' 5 ARCHBOLD HIGH SCHOOL Archbold High School graduated its first class in 1891. The class of 1950 marks the fifty-ninth class to be graduated. More than a thousand young men and women have graduated from here since 1891. They may literally be found in all parts of the world. The fame, fortune, and success which many of them have achieved is ample evidence that their Alma Mater did well by them. Thus an educational institution justifies its somewhat costly existence. Edu- cation, the American Way, and Christianity continue to be the chief pillars of the things we hold dear. The old Elementary Building was the only building on our campus until 1924, when the present Industrial Arts Building was constructed. The present High School was built in 1930. In 1937 the Gennan Township Schools and the Archbold Schools were consolidated into the present district. A new Voca- tional Agriculture Building was opened in 1948. In May of 1949 work was begun on the new Elementary Building. It will be ready for use in the fall of 1950. Several other additions will be needed in the near future. An Elementary gymnasium, an addition of classrooms to the High School, and a new Indus- trial Arts Building have all been suggested by the State Department of Education. The school has had a continuous growth and if industrial and economic factors in our community may be used as a barometer this growth will con- tinue indefinitely. ADMINISTRATION V I. H. Spengler. Supt. of Schools It is the duty and the purpose of the school administration to facilitate an effiicent management of the schools, to provide the essential needs in carry- ing out the educational program, and to see that each part of the organization bears to each other part the proper relation. Administration of a school pro- gram involves supplying all educational and business needs which facilitate the giving of essential and needed instruction. BOARD OF EDUCATION Seated: George Rupp, Peter Rupp, Dr. E. R. Murbach. President, Owen Rice, Clerk, I. R. Peters, Vice President. Standing: Melvin C. Winzeler, I. H. Spengler, Local Superintendent of Schools. The Graduating Class of 1950 wishes to pay its respects to the Board of Education of our School. As we are about to leave we become aware of the fact that we have had the advantages of a fine school building and its excel- lent facilities. We do not often pause to ask who makes these things possible. but we are sincere in our expression 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 know that your material rewards are as none and that your criticisms are often great. It is only in the knowledge that your contributions of time and effort are a genuine service to the youth of our community that your rewards must lie. We sin- cerely wish to acknowledge our debt of gratitude to you and the public whom you represent, and as we leave we humbly say, "Thanks a lot for everything."

The teachers had a party at Dr. Murbach's cottage at Devi1's Lake. Yes, they can relax and have a good time too when the occasion presents itself. They aren't always as serious as their work requires them to be. , d 5 'iikuwqgww Q r I' I MAINTENANCE A nice, clean building is always an incentive to do a good day's work. Many hours of hard labor are necessary to have our buildings in readiness for a new day of school each moming. Good food: we simply can't get along without it. It keeps us going and doing our best. We are all sincerely grateful for our kitchen staff because we just know that there are none better. How could there be? No one envies the bus driver his thankless task. He must battle the weather, bad roads, and a few "bad" kids. Regardless of the obstacles en- countered these men do a fine job of transporting several hundred pupils to and from school daily. The combined efforts of these folks is an essential part in the daily routine of our school. Thanks to all of you for the parts you have played in our years at Archbold High School. i ' t X, . ,hi Earl Bourquin Art Taylor COOKS N Ellcx Beck. Mary Grime, Christine Grime.

The officers were: Richard Winzeler, President: Carlos Bernath, Vice President: Nancy Crossgrove, Secretary and Treasurer. The Council met regularly twice a month and during the year accomp- lished many things, some of which were: having the different clubs decorate the gym for the home basketball games, which added very much to the atmosphere of the games: sponsoring noon tournament games in table tennis and shuffleboard and buying medals to give to all the winners: having a Dad's night, honoring the fathers of the varsity basketball players at one of the basketball games. The Council did a fine job this year and will continue to be a major par? of the school program.

This is perhaps the first active Science Club which the school has ever had. Membership was open to all students above the freshmen level who were interested in science, Meetings were held every other Monday night. Some very interesting programs were arranged for these meetings. The high spot of the year was their three day trip to Chicago via the New York Central. They visited numerous mus- eums and other points of interest while there.. They will be forever grateful to La Choy Food Products, Beatrice Creamery Cor- poration for their very generous gesture of having them as guesis for a wonderful dinner and floor show at the Stevens Hotel. Science students entered numerous projects in the Iunior Academy of Science Day at Bowling Green State University. They won eight Superior ratings for their efforts. At the meeting of the Ohio Academy of Science William Scales won a Superior rating on his Oscilloscope. Sci Questa Club oificers for the year 1949-1950 were: Iim Iohnson, President: Bill Scales, Vice President: Dick Palmer, Sec- retary: Hattie Clingaman, Treasurer.

SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS Good scholarship is considered one of the real goals of our system of education. It is and always has been considered ct wor.hy ideal in the Arch- bold schools.

These groups, especially the Senior Band, enjoyed another good year. The band played at numerous homecomings, carnivals, and festivals. A large number of our members were chosen to play in the all county band at the Music Festival at Wauseon. The Band won a Superior rating in the District competition at Ada and re- peated with another Superior rating in the State finals at Springplace to place them among the elite. Numerous appearances are being arranged for the band during the sum- mer and with a large Intermediate Band an energetic Iunior Band to supply material prospects look quite encouraging for several years to come. The band holds daily rehearsals in the Library Auditorium and is avail- able for any and all occasions whenever the demand arises. The Brass Ensemble won an Excellent rating in District competition at Bowling Green. MUSIC ORGANIZATIONS I ti SAXIXPHONE QUARTET Nancy Grime, Ioyce Burkholder, Charlotte Eicher, Nancy Crossgrove.

There are projects such as raising cattle, farm crops, gardening, cooking, and sewing for members to choose as their subject. Each year the finished products are exhibited at local, county and state activities for prizes.

I The Archbold FFA chapter has been outstanding during the past three years, winning two gold ratings. It has only been organ- ized since 1947 in the local high school, but the FFA in Ohio was formed and organized in 1927. This is an organization for boys who study Vocational Agriculture in high school. The aims and purposes of a good FFA chapter are: 1. To develop competent, aggressive rural and agricultural leadership. 2. To create an nurture a love for Country lite. 3. To strengthen the confidence ot larm boys and young men in themselves and their work. 4. To create more interest in intelligent choice of farming occupations. 5. To encourage members in the development of individual farming programs and become established in farming. 8. To encourage members to improve their home farms. 7. To participate in worthy undertakings. 8. To develop character, train for useful citizenship and foster patriotism. 9. To encourage and practice thrift. lO. To encourage and improve scholarship. The local FFA chapter has done much during the past year to tuliill the purposes of a good chapter.

Each has his special duties assigned to him, and must see that they are carried out. For this work they receive one-half credit a year. With the help of these girls, the students are able to find books quicker and easier. Many students find the library a pleasant place to do their studies and are free to do so. r Archbold Public Library -gb RN,-1 HALLOWE'EN QUEENS . -si-+ 3 f N9 at Helen Dennis Marlene Burkholder Eunice Traut Arlene Klempner Nancy Kernig This year, as was done the year before, ten girls of Archbold High School were nominated by the student body, one to reign as queen and four as her attendants. From these candidates, a queen and four attendants were chosen. Eunice Traut was the queen, her attendants being, Arlene Klempner, Helen Dennis, Marlene Burkholder and Nancy Kernig. Following the crowning of the queen, prizes were awarded to the boys and girls dressed in the best and funniest costumes. After this everyone was treated to free cider and doughnuts. The eve- ning was summed up by a dance which was held in the Legion hall. This evening of entertainment eliminated at least part of the mischief kids can get into on Halloween night. "7 5 ,..

Above are a few scenes from the Industrial Arts department. This is a very popular and important part of the school, and is under the direction of Mr. Hornish. Some very nice articles of furniture, metal work, plastics and various other items too numerous to mention are made in this department. This department has been very valuable to the school by building needed items for the music department, athletics, and different dramatic productions. One of the most important factors is that this department is very helpful and cooperative at all times. SCHOOL CALENDAR September -new Pupils Register. -School officially begins. -No school.

Basketball is the number one sport in the home of the Blue and the Gold. The game started here in 1910 and did well from the start. lt's been going strong ever since and shows no signs of slowing down. The Streaks have won more than their share oi victories over the years. They have gone beyond the county tournament 18 times in the past 26 years. Twice they have gone to the State Tournament: in 1924 they lost the State Championship game to Bellepoint by a 24-Z0 score. This year's team won the Runner-up title. They lost a heart-breaker to Delta by a 31430 score then came back to win their next four games. Delta thus won the tournament championship and the League Championship. The Streaks made a fine showing in the District Tournament at Defiance, winning over West Unity and Delta and losing to Miller City, the eventual State Champions by a 39-38 score. Archbold was ahead all the way until the iinal hall-minute ot play. Archbold's Iunior high team had an excellent season, winning 17 straight games before losing a 30-28 overtime battle to Swanton in the Tournament. Fayette's Eagles were the tournament winners. Plenty ol good material is available for the coming years which portends more good teams. , Iohn Clair, Wayne Nofzinger, Clare Grime, Iames Quillet and Harley Burkholder were lost by graduation. 1949 - 1950 SCORES A1-chbold Opponent Archbold Opponent 60 Iewell 29 50 Napoleon 36 44 Wauseon 32 65 Pettisville 55 West Unity 27 43 Ridgeville Z5 Lyons 23 55 Stryker 62 Fayette 25 39 Delta 72 Pettisville 33 COUNTY TOURNAMENT 51 Chesterfield 14 30 Delta 50 Montpelior Z7 47 Metamora 38 Ridgeville 47 57 Pettisville 33 Stryker 36 44 Lyons 35 Swanton 36 64 Fayette 42 Wauseon 36 DISTRICT TOURNAMENT 44 Fulton 27 57 West Unity 39 Fayette 41 48 Delta 60 Metamora 32 38 Miller City VARSITY INDIVIDUALS Clare Grime.

The team was fairly well balanced in other respects. The boys lost to Metamora in the County Toumament by a score of 3 to 1. A few timely hits would have won the game for them, but they were not forthcoming. Metamora won the County Championship by defeating Lyons in the championship game by a score of 12 to 6. Both teams advanced to the District Tournament at Defiance. The District Tournament was won by Iewell of Defiance County. The team loses the following seniors by graduation: Iames Quillet, Iohn Clair, Don Wyse, Clare Grime and Richard Winzeler. Some promising material will be available for next year and if a couple of good pitchers are developed and some batting punch is found the team should do fairly well.

The 1950 Track season was somewhat hampered by very bad weather this spring. The squad was crippled in personnel because a number of good prospects did not participate because oi work and various other reasons. Delta won the County championship for the seventh consecutive year. They scored 73 points followed by Swanton with 56, Archbold with 46, Ches- terfield with 22 Va, and Fayette with 2lV2. Several of the boys participated in the Devilbiss Relays. Ned Lorton placed fifth in the discus, and a team composed of Iohn Young, Dale Leu, Lowell Spiess and Richard Short placed fifth in the shuttle relay. Richard Short, Bob Leupp and Duane Stamm are the senior members who will be lost by graduation. The awards for high point man on the Track team in l949 went to Richard Schantz and to Richard Short who tied for the most points. The individual trophy for the 1950 season went to Lowell Spiess who acquired the most points.

This club consists of those students in high school who have earned their monogram in at least one of the school's major sports of basketball, baseball or track. At present the organization is not active. It holds no meetings nor does it engage in any school activities as a group. Membership comes automati- cally to any student who earns his letter. However, several years ago all new members were subject to initiation and the club engaged in a few activities. The membership of the club seems rather small but this results primarily from the fact that a majority of the members are lettermen in two or three sports. DR. R. o.

The class then consisted of twenty five boys and girls. Many additions and losses of mem- bership were recorded as they moved along until they numbered forty-two when they were awarded their diplomas on May 16, 1950. Can you identify them without looking at the names? The boys continued to outnumber the girls as the class membership listed twenty-seven boys and only fifteen girls in their final school year. Memories of their school days will always be recalled as the most de- lightful experiences of their lives. CLASS HISTORY In the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred forty-six, September 9, a group of loud, arrogant, none-too-talented young boys and girls, numbering some fifty, more or less, entered the lower portals of learning in the Archbold High School. They were often referred to by such adjectives as green, ignor- ant, stupid, awkward and others of a similar nature. On September 27 they survived the ordeal of a terrific initiation and became full-fledged members of the high school. By next year the tables had turned. We felt a little more secure in our advanced position as Sophomores. It was indeed a pleasure to be on the giv- ing end of the initiation ceremonies and the Frosh were duly humbled in a never-to-be-forgotten manner. Our Iunior year loomed large ahead of us. There were to be big doings this year. Class rings were chosen. Two plays, "You'll Die Laughing" and "Professor Pepp" were presented during thetyear. The big social event of the year as usual was the Iunior-Senior Banguet. The class really went all out to entertain their older guests, the class of 1949. This was a most joyous oc- casion and the closing of our Iunior year was filled with happy memories that will linger in our hearts forever. In September 1949 we entered the most important phase of our careers when we enrolled as seniors. The year held promise of manv important and exciting events. The first of these events was having our graduation pictures taken. Then followed the business of selecting a Commencement speaker. ordering invitations. making plans for a trip and aettina readv for the senior plavs. The play "Feathers in a Gale" was presented by a dual cast on May 4 and 5. 'I'he bigaest events were yet to come. On Sundav evening. Mav 14 our Baccalaureate Services were held. with Reverend Paul E. Fisher bringing the message. On Tuesday evening. Mav 16, Dr. Arthur S. Fleming, President of Ohio Wesleyan Universitv delivered our Commencement address and we were awarded our diplomas. On Wednesday, Mav 17, we departed for a four day trip to Washinaton, D.C. This was a wonderful experience for all of us, one which we shall never forget. With varied feelings and emotions the class of 1950 leaves Archbold High School to iournev out into the world to do their part to keep it forever the wonderful place we know it to be. 'ual I i CLASS PROPHECY The place: A street corner in the town of Archbold. The time: 1975 A. D. The scene: Two unidentified, gray-haired men are approaching from opposite directions, only to collide with each other and both to fall to the pavement. "Excuse me," says the shorter man. "Certainly, and me, too," replies the taller. "Say, don't I know you?" "You sure ought to. We both graduated from Archbold High School at the same time." "The old home town certainly looks differ- ent than it did in l950." "Yes sir, and I wonder how many of our old classmates are still around." "Well, let's mosey down to the old City Drug Store and we'll see if we can recollect everyone." ' So the tall one and the short one walked down to the old drug store. "Do you suppose Iohn Desbouefs came back to work in the City Drug?" asked the short man. "I don't know, but we'll soon see," said the taller man. So in they went, ordered two cokes and sat down to drink them. It wasn't long until a gray-haired man came brisky into the store. "Desbouefs!" said the taller man. "Hello fel- lows, long time no see," said Iohn. "What do you think of the old place? Changed quite a bit, huh?" "Yep, shore has," said the short man. "What have you got in the back room, pinball machines?" "Yes. Say do you know this fellow coming in the store?" "Bednar!" yelled the tall fellow. "How do you do," said David. "Married, Dave?" asked the short man. "Yes sir, got six kids. You know Arlene Klempner, she's my wife and secretary. Stick around for a little while. Some of the old class- mates come in every noon. Here come Clare Grime and Harley Burkholder now. They are big time dairy men, you know." "Say, aren't those two guys Bob Burk- holder and Iim Quillet?" asked the tall man. "Yes," spoke up a voice in back of him! "Hello, Duane, what are you working at now?" asked the short man. "Oh, I'm farming. Iim and Bob are the prosperous guys, though. lim has a three hun- dred acre farm and Bob is raising mink by the thousands." "Well, we've got to be going. So-long," said Clare. "Yes, good-bye fellows, see you again soon," said the tall fellow. "Well, Iohn and Dave, what are the rest of the old classmates doing?" said the short man. "Well, Ir. Grime is doing a pretty good job of farming. fRowdyl Bob Nofzinger is run- ning the frozen food plant. He married Phyllis Buehrer, but she's still working in the telephone office," answered Dave. "Say," inquired the tall man, "where is Bill Walters?" "Oh, he's head of the Mayo Clinic now," spoke up Iohn. "Willie Wyse is selling farm machinery. He's got some new fangeled con- traption, something like a robot. You push a button and it does all the work for you." "Now that's something," said the short man. "What about Don Wyse and Maynard Sauder?" "Well, Don is teaching mechanical en- gineering out in Louisiana and Maynard is the top man at Sauder's Woodworking Co. Ir. Eicher runs Eicher's Poultry concem and Wayne Nofzinger is the General Manager there," said Dave. "What are Richard Winzeler and Virgil Waidelich doing?" inquired the tall man. "Well," said Iohn. "Rich is a turkey farmer and Virgil is a great steer raiser. Bob Leupp decided to be a bachelor and now he is a well to do farmer. Nancy Crossgrove and Anna Rose are teaching up at the high school. Nancy Fagley is the Band Director there. Bill Stuckey and Orville Grieser are both steer farmers and each has already made a million. "Claudine Nofzinger runs the Beauty Shop here in town, doesn't she?" said the short man. "Yes, and Shirley Dennis owns that beau- tiful summer resort just north of town. Shirley Klempner is now one of the most successful homemakers in Archbold, although she still is a telephone operator. Charlotte Hausch mar- ried Richard Short and they are very happy together. Dick owns a nice farm west of town. Betty Rychener is a missionary in Africa. Doris Leatherman is a secretary at Lugbills," said Dave. "Let's see, is that all of them?" asked the tall man. "No, spoke up Iohn. "Ruth Hayes is typ- ist at La Choys and Verdene works there, also. Let me think. Oh yes, Donna Belle Leupp is the fifth grade teacher in Wauseon, and Roger Ebersole is a farmer in Michigan. Iohn Clair married Ioan Burkholder and they are living in Texas. Iohn is a bridge constructor. Bill Tan- ner is driving a racing car and Eunice Traut is a secretary in the ,Toledo Trust Company. "Well," said the short man, "by the pro- cess of elimination, I suppose you know who we are." "Sure," replied Iohn. "You're Hody Stahl and the tall one is Ben Young." "Right you are. And it's time now to make it right back to my elevator in Elmira," said Ben. "Me too, or I won't get enough hours in to feed all eighteen of my kids," Stahl cackeled. We hope we have given you some insight to the future in these few paragraphs, although we do not claim 100 percent accuracy in our predictions. I .fe -A t t r l .

SENIOR OBITUARY It is with profound regret that we announce the death of the well-known and highly respected Senior class of the Archbold High School. After its remarkable achievement recently with the examinations which it passed with flying colors, the class was noticed to be changing perceptibly. Upon skilled diagnosis, the trouble proved to be an enlargement of the intellect which, after a lingering attack lasting four years, caused the demise of the class on May 16. The senior class was one respected and loved by all who knew it and will be greatly missed in the social, athletic, and educational circles of the school and neighborhood. Its qualities of industry, idealism, and charm endeared it to all who had the pleasure of its acquaintance, and it will be sincerely mourned by the faculty, classmates, and friends. Its place in the social life of the school was by no means small and in the field of athletics it was widely known. In its mental achievements, how- ever, it attained its greatest distinction and gained high honors. The passing of the Senior class leaves a void in the intellectual circles of the school that will long be marked. The loss of this class will be deeply felt in the community also, and it will be difficult to assemble another with so much public spirit and power of accomplishment. The Senior class is survived by a Iunior class, a Sophomore class, and a Freshman class. The first mentioned will be appointed to the place left vacant by the untimely decease of the Senior cass, but can in no measure fill the position, nor will it be expected to do so at first. A great class has gone from us, and together we rnoum its passing, con- soling ourselves with this thought: "ls quen di amant adulescens moritur," which means, "He whom the gods love dies while a youth." The funeral services were held in the auditorium on May 16, 1950. At- tendance at the services was by invitation only, and all friends were requested to attend, bearing flowers and gifts. Services were conducted by Dr. Arthur S. Fleming, president of Ohio Wesleyan University. CLASS EPITAPH Here lie the good Seniors whose genius was such We scarcely can blame it or praise it too much: Who, bom for distinction, perfected their mind And fraught with all learning, gave joy to mankind, They were equal to all things, for nothing unfit, They were pleased with their culture and proud of their wit. They are missed by their classmates, their teachers as well. Who their virtues and wisdom now tearfully tell: They died of brain fever, brought on by delight, In their fourth year of age on commencement night. They are glad to be gone to a new world, alack! If we could when we pleased, we'd not whistle them back. But let us be candid and speak out our mind, Their equal as students 'twill be hard to find, And in peace may they lie, our good Seniors. who now Have taken their finals and made their last bow.

The class of 1950 enjoyed a wonderful trip to D.C. after their graduation. They left iance via the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad on the Columbian on Wednesday evening, May 17 arrived in the nation's capital on Thursday ning. This trip provided many new experiences most of the class. Features such as a long train , riding the Stratoliner, breakfast and dinner in ining car, the first glimpse of the dome of the 'on's capital building, the many wonders beheld ashington, their stay at the Annapolis Hotel, ting new friends from far away places, the Po- ac River, Mount Vernon, the fine dinner at the George Mason Hotel in Alexadria, Arlington Na- tional Cemetery and all of its historic heroes, Christ Church in Alexandria, the Iefferson and Lincoln Memorials, going up and down the Washington Monument, a trip through the PBI and seeing our Senate and House of Representatives in action pro- vided thrills which will never be forgotten. Then, finally, the long tiresome trip home and then the grand feeling of getting back home all safe and sound. The class feels that the trip was very much worthwhile and cannot be measured in money value. This event will always remain a source of a happy climax to their graduation from high school. SENIOR FAREWELL We, the seniors of 1950, through much painstaking labor, have reached the twelfth rung of our ladder and are about to be pushed off to make room for the Iuniors. At the age of six we mounted the first and hardest rung with fear and trembling. After the six fast steps we reached a new extension-the "other" building. Several times the ladder seemed wobbly and some of us looked longingly at the ground. We came through initiation only by keeping our eyes on the upper rungs. Having attained the tenth rung, we were a bit more self-confident: and on the eleventh we gained real triumphs with our plays and banquet. Before we leap we wish to thank our teachers who steadied the ladder and gave helpful pushes now and then, our fellow students who called words oi encouragement from lower rungs. and our parents who were responsible for our ladder. So one ..... two ..... three ..... Goodbye! COMMERCIALS Students, Teachers, Parents and Friends: This annual was brought to you at a reasonable price, through the whole-hearted co-operation and financial support of the friendly merchants of our community. They have amply demonstrated their good will toward our school and their supportis greatly appreciated by the publishers of this book. Let's extend our patron- age and good will to them in the same friendly manner in which they have given theirs to us. ' .
