willingness to aid us in each minute problem, and for
that personality which teaches us anew everyday that

victories may lead us to greater victories. These

Entering A. H. S. as seventh graders, we pushed and plodded our way through the halls
for two years, and then - we were freshmen! With the addition of new members from
Elmira and Zone, we were initiated into the hallowed halls by the sophisticated sophs.
Vengeance is sweet! The next year we initiated the Class of '52! We opened the eyes
of the theatre lovers with our outstanding dramatic productions, "FlNDERS CREEPERS"
and "THE BABY SlTTER," in our junior year. 'So darn much fun," 'So beautiful," "lf
we could just do it again" - remarks heard while decorating for and the night of our
watery Ir.-Sr. Banquet, "NEPTUNE'S COURT." lt provided the perfect ending for the
year. ln the autumn of 1952, we began our last year at A. H. S., electing Richard
Thomas Lauber our president. We were enchanted by the lovely and haunting "BLUE
HAWAll," to which the Juniors led us for the Ir.-Sr. Banquet. Shortly afterward, we pre-
sented our first Senior play, "THE BASHFUL BACHELOR," followed by "A BROOM FOR
THE BRIDE." On Sunday evening, May.17, our Baccalaureate services were held with
Reverend H. E. Bertsche bringing us a wonderful message. Kevin McCann, President of
Defiance College, delivered our Commencementaddress Tuesday evening, May 19. On
Sunday evening, May 24, we departed for our six day trip to Washington D. C. and New
York City, thus ending our days at A. H. S.
With varied feelings and emotions the class of 1953 leaves Archbold High School to
iigurney oug into the world to do their part to keep it forever the wonderful place we
ow it to e.
SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
The class of '53, having decided at their senior picnic to have a reunion in ten years,
met in May of 1963 at Pokagon State Park for their first reunion.
When we arrived, Dr. Annabelle Stuckey, B. S., M. D., Phd., D. D. S., D. D., and
now assistant librarian of the ArchboldlMc Laughlin Memorial Library had already ar-
rived with the hot dogs which she had .frozen after the senior picnic. Annabelle lives
meagerly, but comfortably in her thirty room house at Lugbill's with her eighty-two hy-
brid cats with which she has been experimenting since her biology days. The cats fill
most of the rooms, so Annabelle lives in the butler's pantry. The butler is Donald Kleck,
who also has his D. D., and is presently preaching in revival services Tuesday and Thurs-
day nights in the back room of the Home Restaurant. These inspiring services feature
Buetta Wyse singing her outstanding hymn, "lt's Still in the Book."
Soon after, Jane Scales arrived with the olives lripe of coursej. We learned that she
has divorced Bill Rupp, whom she had married to psychoanalyze and reform, so that she
could marry Einstein whose mental level is more nearly her own. She also had just re-
vised the week into six twenty -eight hour days. When Bill learned of this, he left the
country for his hermitage in Siberia Che likes cold saltj, for he hates everyone anyway.
More pleasant news was brought with the arrivalof the successful Paul fYogij Yoder,
manager of the Burlington Bombers who have just defeated the Yankees five games
Bob QHuckj Berry is his magnificient pitcher who allowed one hit in the first game of
the series, but pitched four nohitters in the remaining games.
At that moment we were all startled to see a figure in a striped uniform creeping out
of the woods. We realized at once that it was our classmate Rollin fBad Boy Budj Beck,
whom we hadn't seen since his departure from us on the senior trip. A news flash later
in the day reported his escape from Sing Sing. Psychiatrists believe it was his criminal
role in the senior class play which started his life of crime.
A distinguished classmate, bearing the potato chips, landed in his private helicopter.
DeRoyce Hornish, conductor of the Cleveland Symphony, proudly announced that he now
plays wayback on the Cleveland Browns between rehearsals and on Sundays before his TV
appearance with the orchestra. He is noted in the football world for his extra-point
kicking. His beautiful wife, the former Helen Dennis, is now modeling kneepads and
chest protectors for the MacGregor-Goldsmith Athletic Company, which was recently
purchased by Velda Stutzman.
As soon as Barbara Christy arrived, we had a rousing square dance. Barbara is now
calling at Mason's Pit, but will soon have to give it up since the speedway opens in a
few weeks and she'll have to start driving again. Her wonderful position was secured as
a result of her winning the Arion Award.
A more refined classmate drove up later. It was Charlotte Eicher, caretaker of Carol
Jean Rupp's art gallery. Famous as she now is, Carol Jean's first painting hangs in the
halls of A. H. S,
Marlene Leu, Secretary General of the United Nat-ions, was flown in her own private
plane. Another member of our class is engaged in politics. Tom Lauber, president of
the U. U., fUnited Universej, is trying to overpower the U. N. A war is raging on Mars,
and Tom Fankhauseris the chiefrocket ship designer. The president's wife, Velda Lantz,
is sewing all the space suits by hand.
The former Sara Short drove up late in the afternoon in her Cadillac, purchased by
her Pulitzer Prize winnings. She won the award for her book THE SHORT REPORT, or
INSIDE THE LUCYS, an intimate novel of the lives of these famous women. Her hus-
band, Orville Fricke, helped with the inside work on INSIDE THE LUCYS,
About 4 o'c1ock, a gaily decorated car with tin cans clanging on the fenders drove
up, Out stepped the bridal couple, Alice Mary Roth and Jim Stuckey. After ten years
of rtmning, Jim was finally caughtby Alice on a hayride given by the Spinsters' Society,
of which Alice was formerly president, and was dragged into Angola.
We were all delighted to see Louis Brock, chief ambulance driver of City Hospital.
He drove Jeanne Johnson, famed head of the Bluestreak PublishingCompany, and recently
elected the best dressed woman in Archbold, to the picnic, as both her limousines were
out of commission. Incidentally, the morgue-keeper at the hospital turned out to be
Digger O'Dale Short, who accompanied Jeanne and Louis in the ambulance.
The pies and cakes were furnished by Betty Seiler, whose Better Baking for Better
Living Shoppe netted a cool million last year in Hollywood. Another classmate who is
now living there is Doris Gundeng and though she has never been able to break into
movies, her picture is on every loaf of Betty's Miracle Bread.
We were all at the dock when a beautiful Cris Craft pulled up. Having crossed the
Atlanlgic on a raft, Mary Ellen Nafziger and Virginia Sauder felt they could now handle
a yac t.
Before dinner that evening we all went horse-back riding on the pure-bred stallions
which JoanGrime breeds on her ranch in Kentucky. Sally Arcaro Qalias Palmerj rode her
champion to victory in the Derby this year.
Nancy Short, president of the Central Canadian Truckline, arrived in aspecialsemi
with her banker Eleanor Stuckey.
After dinner atPotowotami Inn that evening, we danced to the music of Dee De-
Groff's Filthy Five - they're from Dirt, not Hunger - and were entertained by the golden
voice of Barbara fBabsj Nafziger and the tap dancing artistry of Nancy fTwinkletoesj
It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.

In our scientific age, with its ever increasing availability of positions in the field, student interest in-
creases chemistry, physics and biology. This student interest has been incorporated into the Sci-Questa
Club, under the supervision of Mr. Slesnick.
The club produced the third and biggest
Quadri-County Science Fair this year at
which nearly two thousand people attended.
Joan Brodbeck and Nedra Hall of Wauseon
were sent to the National Science Fair at

The interrelation of the preparation of foods,
clothing, and interior decoration affords a well-
rounded education in home making. The Early
American theme has been carried out in the redec-
oration and renovation projects of the club. With
the highest national award of 5100, won in a con-
test, and the profits from concessions, the girls
purchased a Heywood-Wakefield Early American
dining room suite. The activities include catering
to the football dinner, the FFA Banquet, the Bald-
win-Wallace dinner, and the Valentine reception.
The Home-Ec Club girls served hors d'oeurves of
rattlesnake meat and exhibited their various pro-
jects at the Quadri-County Science Fair. In addi-
tion to these activities the girls launder and mend
the athletic uniforms, and do the costuming for the
various high school entertainments.

A school is as good as its library. Mrs. Brouqin, librarian, works
diligently to keep standards high. Each period of the day the student
librarians help with the circulation and maintenance of the library.
These duties include circulation of books and magazines, shelving of in-
coming books, and keeping the shelves in order. They receive one-half
credit for their work. Many students find the library a pleasant place
to read, study or enjoy the many books or magazines placed in the li-
brary for the attainment of knowledge and enjoyment for all the students
and for the community of Archbold.

IT'S A GREAT LIFE SINGING
At 11:20 on Mondays, Wednesdays and
Fridays a slow trickle of students enter an
empty auditorium. If you know our stu-
dents well, you will realize that these are
the students that make up the Mixed Choir.
Mr. Menichetti, takes the same stance
two mornings a week to direct the girls'
and boys' glee clubs. Through his skillful
musicianship, the girls and boys try to
achieve a harmony that will satisfy both
the director and the glee club members.
During choir and glee club rehearsals
the singers work for perfection of various
songs to be presented at the annual Spring
Concert, Baccalaureate services, and the
district competition at which the Mixed
Choir received an Excellent rating.

As a part of the activities program on Halloween night, A. H. S. selects a
Halloween queen and court each year. The queen is chosen from the senior
class and one attendant from each of the four high school classes. The queen
this year was Barbara Christy, and her attendants, Sally Palmer, Donna Ruf-
fer, Barbara Ruffer, and Joanne Beck. The queen and her attendants each re-
ceived gifts from the Community Commercial Club, who sponsored the event.
The program, developed for the prevention of damaging Halloween stunts,
also included prizes awarded for the best and most original costumes in the
various age groups.
The program was nearly successful in the prevention of vagrant Hallo-
weeningg but, despite the carefully planned diversions the morning after Hal-
loween, a total of eleven privies were located at various places about town and
had to be carted away by the street department.

The Blue Streaks continued to shine on the basketball court again this
season. The Varsity won 23 games and lost only three. The Reserve
team won 19 and lost only one. The Junior High team came through with
an undefeated season of 18 straight wins. The Varsity finished second,
behind Fayette in the Fulton County League, but they came through to
win the County Tournament in convincing style. They went to the finals
of the District Tournament held at Anthony Wayne, where they lost a
tough one to Holgate by a 48-45 score. The Streaks were ahead almost
all the way, but a big fourth quarter pulled Holgate through. The Henry
County boys came through to win the Regional at Toledo and made an
excellent showing against Mariemont, the eventual state champions.
Four more trophies were added to their large collection. Paul Yoder
won the foul shooting trophy.
The squad lost Paul Yoder, Tom Lauber, Orville Fricke, and Tom
Fankhauser by graduation, leaving a fine group of experienced players
for next year. The hold-overs will be supplemented by some promising
material from the Reserve and Junior High Teams.

Football was restored to the high school sports calendar after a lapse of about 20
years. Jack Robison and Robert Conroy served as coaches. Much time was needed to
teach the boys the fundamentals of the game and give them an idea of what it would
be like. A squad of about 40 boys reported for the opening sessions of practice After
a month of hard work, offensive and defensive units were developed with some of the
boys going both ways. The team possessed considerable size and many of the boys were
adept at other sports. Most of them readily absorbed the game fundamentals and were
ready for their first testina game. A schedule of five games was arranged for the team
The boys came through in fine style and won all of their games. Some ofthe opposition
was not too rugged, but some extended the boys to the limit. All of the players gained
valuable experience for next year when they will encounter stronger opponents as they
will compete in the Maumee Valley League.
A group of boys from grades6through9 worked out under the direction of Mr Adam
chak. They also gained valuable experience which will prepare them for future play
Five seniors will be lost by graduation. Tom Lauber and DeRoyce Hornish who were
first string backs, Paul Yoder played at end and also at fullback, Louis Brock did a fine
job at defensive end, Dee DeGroff was at center where he played both ways most of the

The Blue Streak nine of 1952-1953 had another good year.
They practically duplicated the achievements of the team of 1952-
I953. They went to the finals of the county tournament along with
Fayette. The Championship game was not played as both teams
entered the District tournament at Defiance. The Streaks reached
the finals by virtue of wins over Deshler 10 to 6, Sherwood 5 to 1,
and Edon 4 to 2. They lost to Holgate in the finals 9 to 1. Fayette,
meanwhile, lost their first game to Ottawa Hills 3 to 1. The
Streaks had an over all record of 8 wins and 2 losses.
Don Kleck, Roger Schantz, Andy Murbach, Stanley Buehrer,
and DeRoyce Hornish shared the pitching duties. Paul Yoder and
Philip Buehrer worked behind the plate.
Don Kleck, Paul Yoder, DeRoyce I-Iornish, and Tom Fankhauser
were lost by graduation. Another good team will be available next

Archbold added a new sport to their athletic program with the introduction
of golf last spring. Several boys in school had engaged in the sport on their
own and enjoyed the game very much. A squad of six boys was assembled and,
after a few practice rounds, the boys made their debut in scholastic golf.
The boys were not able to win any of their meets, but they made some good
showings considering the fact that they were competing against schools that
were all experienced in the sport.
James Clingaman was the low scorer closely followed by Andy Murbach.
Other members of the squad were Robert Berry, Joe Crossgrove, Robert Kleck
and Neil Spengler.

The Blue Streak cheerleaders had a very good season and did a very
good job of encouraging the boys to victory. The teams responded to the
whole hearted support of the cheering sections with many victories and
only two defeats.

This club consists of those students in high school who
have earned their letter in at least one of the school's major
sports of basketball, baseball or track.
At the present time the organization is not in the active
category. It holds no meetings, nor does it engage in school
activities as a group. Membership comes automatically to
any student who earns his letter. Some years ago the club
initiated all new members and engaged in a few activities.
The membership of this groupis rather small. This re-
sults primarily from the fact that many of the boys engage
in two or three sports.
The size of theA Association is growing because of foot-
ball. It may become active again.
DR. R. O. RYCHENER
RYCHE ER AWARD
Dr,Ralph O.Rychener, an Alumnus of Archbold High School, and now a
successful surgeon in Memphis, Tennessee, who has long been noted for his
very generous moraland financial supportof all athletic and other activities
in our school, in 1946 established an Annual Senior Athletic Award of one
hundred dollars cash to a graduating senior boy. This scholarship was named
in honor of Mr. Rychener's parents, Mr. and Mrs. N. J. Rychener, local
residents, who always displayed a keen interest in local school affairs.
The award is made on the following basis: Thirty per cent athletic
abilitygthirty per cent scholarshipg twenty per cent general school attitudeg
and twenty per cent neatness and personalappearance. In 1952 a slight re-
vision was made in the award making the cash payment of the one hundred
dollars only if the winner goes on to college. If he does not continue his
education beyond high school he will receive a watch chain medal instead
of the cash award. Another new provision states that he must have an
average of B or better in all of his English courses. If the one chosen for
the award does not use it by going to college it will be held in escrow for
the next year. The winner of the award is selected by a secret vote of the
high school faculty.
Former winners ofthe award were as follows: Aden Storrer, 1946, Gerald
Lehman, 1947g Paul Sigg, 1948g Arthur K1eck,1949g John Clair, 19505 Dale
Leu, 1951g and Ralph Burkholder, 1952.
