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 straight. 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. 18 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 Ru fer. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. 19 SENIOR CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fifty -three, on leaving this institution of learning, being of sound mind and memory do bequeath these valued possessions.

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.

Archbold's highest recognition of superior accomplishment is mem- bership in the National Honor Society, which is awarded for outstanding leadership, service, scholarship, and character during the entire high school career. The emblem of this Society is the keystone surmounted by the flam- ing torch. The torch signifies the fourfold purpose of the Society. To bear forward the searching light of truth, to lead that others may follow in the light, to keep burning in our school a high ambition for the endur- ing values of life, and to serve -- these purposes are symbolized in the torch. On February 10, nine new members were inducted into the Society and four sophomores were brought in on probation by the six senior members in an impressive candlelight ceremony. The officers this year were: Jane Scales, presidentg Jeanne Johnson, vice presidentg Annabelle Stuckey, secretaryg and Sara Short, treasurer.

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.

FOOTB LL 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 1952 FOOTBALL Payne--There.

This ended an un beaten season in the Streaks' return to gridiron play. 69 HOMECOMING QUEEN Janet Wyse, Barbara Christy, Shirley Graf, CoNette Nofzinger, Sandra Short Shirley Receives Her Crown The Court Rises to the Occasion Archbold High's firstfootball Homecoming Queen and her four attendants were chosen by the squad for the Archbold vs Payne game on October 17.

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 year with experienced players in all positions.

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.

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. 76 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.
