THE SENIOR CLASS
ARCHBOLD HIGH SCHOOL
We the senior class, of nineteen hundred fifty-four,
dedicate this yearbook to the Quadria County Science
Fair. This organization has helped promote science
in our school, and also in many of the schools in the
Every year two outstanding projects are chosen
from the many displayed and sent to the National Fair.
There are only 55 science fairs in the whole United
States. Let us hope that this fair shall in the future
continue its magnificent effect on the citizens of this
community, who so generously support it.

The 25th of May 1975 A.D., the distinguished
members of Archbold High, Class of "54", met at
"Milky Way" Field, Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A., North
American Continent at 1100 homes for the prespace
dinner at the luxurious Mars Room in preparation for
the first trip to Planet X. This notable assembly was
greeted by Captain Edward Lauber, manager of the
largest Space Ships' Incorporated, and his charming
wife Oksana Holian. A tour of the space station was
conducted by Jerry Grime and his pleasing assistant,
Marjorie Fiser. Much to our amazement at the fabu-
lous discovery of Skyhooks by Professor James L.
Buehrer and Roy Schott, we were informed that the
invisible Robot, attaching these devices to cosmic
rays was designed and assembled by "Wabet Woth"
alias Robert Roth. At our next stop we inspected the
Atomic Pile which was being cooked under the di-
rection of the eminent Dr. Ralph Croninger with the
assistance of his partner Avon "Einstein" Roth. Fear-
ing possible radiation injuries, we walked on to the
commissary, where we were pleased to find Mary
Winzeler and Betty Nicolen in charge of the Anti-
radiation unit. Their assistant in Pharmacy was none
other than our own Eileen Beaverson. Walking across
the field to the office we saw Lowell Rufenacht,
Paul Stuckey and Gene Waidelich loading the space
ship for the air-lift to Planet X. We were the dinner
guests of Major General Bill Kernig of the space
patrol and his lovely wife, CoNette Nofzinger, in-
vited us to be their guests at the popular Gluckstein's
Cafe. Shrimp A la Murbach, so named after the
universally famous Doctor Edwin Andrew Murbach,
inventor of the multi-constellation air-suit, con-
stituted the main course of the dirmer.
Chef-de -cuisine, Ruth Ann Terrell, prepared the
savory food aided by her culinary staff member, Mary
Kunkle, famed for her homemade Lasagne Ripiene.
Co -workers, Helen Wlasuik, consultant on home-
making and gardening, and Dorothy Gearig, the
originator of inner-space recipes contributed their
During the dinner, the super-sonic nationally
known quartet, Gene Rupp, Charles Riegsecker,
Everett Wyse and Roger Miller entertained and one
of the featured numbers was "Junior's Rocket Rag"
Uunior Gautschej composed by Ethel Traut fwho was
inspired when she sat on the East fire escape of Arch
Hi and observed the sun rise.J Preceding the last
course of our very delicious dinner we had the plea-
sure of hearing Madame Mary Wlasuik, one of our
esteemed classmates who generously contributed to
the program by singing her favorite Aria from Sa-
brina Fair. Joe "Doisey" Crossgrove and his orchestra
accompanied her. During the Grand Finale, more fa-
miliar faces appeared. Donna Ruffer, Mary Lou Ruf-
fer, Sue Young, and Jim Clingaman, members of the
sensational Spacetts on a planetary tour from the
R.C. Atomic Space Station in New York added gla-
mour to the festivity. At the close of the program,
Captain Edward Lauber presented Carolyn Grieser,
the head -waitress, with the Planetary Platinum Award
for her outstanding achievement in catering and
dining service. To no one's surprise Shirley Graf,
the Women's Society Editor ofthe PETER PAN HA NDI-
CAP, and writer of the special column "Advice to
the Love Loin" announced a miraculous romantic
event, the engagement of Ethel Meck and James
Schmucker who had enjoyed the courtship of twenty-
six years. We were interrupted by the super -sonic
communication system announcing flight of Ship
Polaris to Planet X. Aswe were being escorted to the
flight deck, we passed the beauty salon and whom
did we see but Mona Roth entrusting the arrange-
ment of her coiffure to the deft hands of Jeannine
"Red" Croninger once famous for her freckle re-
mover. Upon entering the Rocket Polaris, stewardess
Elaine Grieser conducted us to our private compart-
ment and gave us instructions regarding the preflight
take off. Introductions to the personnel followed. We
were elated when we discovered Pilot Lowell Flory
and his co -pilot Roger "sure -shot" Schantz discussing
the course with navigator Keith Short who was swear-
ing with tears in his eyes and lamenting the death
ofthe fair maiden mettor.Incidentally, the pseudonym
on the bow of the ship of Pilot Lowe11's Ship was
"Flipper's Flapper". Looking out our window we saw
none other than Kenneth Fankhauser busily writing
the description of the first flight to Planet X for the
headlines in the INTERNATIONAL CHASE REVIEW.
As blast offtime drew nearer, cancellations became
more frequent untilonly two fearless passengers were
left on the list. Who were they? You guessed it! Su-
zanne Stuckey and Barbara Rich. Now the blast off-
utter darkness-pain, pain-oh pain, sans sight-sans
mind -suddenly awareness returned with the jolt of
the landing. Victory! I The first arrivals of Planet X!
-Cautiously, we descended, testing the air with ca-
naries. Freezel! Off to the left--a white blue -We
flashed a light--a sign--"Welcome to Planet X---

The Archbold Chapter of the National Honor Society was formed in
1950, and is based on standards set by the National Honor Society. These
standards are Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Service. Eligible
students must be in the upper fourth of the Junior Class. Sophomores
are sometimes selected as probationary members, but they do not be-
come active until the induction in their Junior year. The students are
chosen by a faculty committee composed of teachers who have come in
contact with the eligible members on afairly broad scale. The selected
students must maintain a grade average of above aC in order to remain
in the organization. lf they are able to do this, they become lifetime
This years induction was held in front of the student body in April of

Under the capable direction of Mr. Menichetti, the senior band is
one of the outstanding organizations in Archbold High School. During
the past year this group has given two excellent concertsg one at
Christmas and the other one in the spring. They have also played for
plays, football games, and other such activities. The band received a
superior rating at district and also at state competition. They are one
of the very few bands in Ohio to have made such an accomplishment.

For the past several years the Community Commercial Club has
been sponsoring a program of Halloween activities on Halloween Night.
The purpose of these activities has been to provide wholesome enter-
tainment for the young people of the community in an attempt to curb
the malicious forms of amusement which are so prevalent in many
communities. The Club has every right to feel proud of the fact that
last year the young folks of the community were one hundred percent
cooperative and practically none of the usual type of Halloween mis-
Following the crowning of the queen, prizes were awarded to the
boys and girls who had the best and funniest costumes. Quite a large
number of adults entered the spirit of the event and also appeared in
Cider and doughnuts topped off the program. Many attended the
theater as the weather was quite cold and the streets were deserted
at an early hour.

The Industrial Arts Department is under the cap-
able direction of Mr. Hornish. This year at the fourth
Quadri-County-Science Fair they had an inspiring dis-
playg it included: wood working, metal work, and
plastics. In this class the students learn a lot of in-
teresting and useful things.
Good scholarship is considered one of the most important goals of our educational system. It is re-
garded as a worthy ideal in the Archbold Schools. Considerable emphasis is placed upon a testing pro-
gram which includes the Every Pupil Tests, Senior Scholarship Tests, Preliminary-District-State Tests,
Eighth Grade Tests and Final State Scholarship Tests.

The local chapter of the F.F.A., has done much during the past year
to fulfill the purposes of a good chapter. The boys that belong to this
club during their school days learn a lot of valuable information and
also get practical experience that will help them in their future years.
The school may indeed feel proud of the fine work of this organi-
zation as it goes about its task of making good farmers and citizens out
of its members.

The Home Economics Club is under the direction of Miss Ruth Fag-
ley. In this club the girls are taught how to cook, sew, and many other
household tasks. During the school year the girls prepare and serve at
many of the school's annual banquets. This year they started a new
idea--giving a tea for the senior girls and their mothers. The party
was a huge success. In addition to their own sewing projects, they also
mend and take care of all the athletic uniforms.

The Streaks joined the Maumee Valley League and found themselves in some very fast company as far as
football was concerned. The squad was somewhat hampered by injuries to key players. They played an eight
game schedule, winning 3 games and losing 5. Several of the games were dropped by narrow margins. Only
Holland and Delta ran over the Streaks for large scores. Holland won the league title and were one of the
highest scoring teams in the state.
A new. lighted field was inaugurated and will serve for future grid iron teams. The field has been fenced in
and shrubs have been planted around it. Within a few years it should rank with most of the fields in our area.
The Varsity coaching duties were carried out by Jack Robison and Bill Arthur.
Ralph Thrope served as Junior High coach and worked with a squad of 40 boys. The boys made a good start
as they won 3 and lost 4. Much good material will come from this group for future Varsity material. The boys
made good showings against all opponents and gained much valuable experience.
The Varsity squad lost the following seniors by graduation. Backs - Andy Murbach, Bill Kernig, Roger Schantz,
and Eddie Lauber, Linemen -Jim Clingaman, Jerry Grime, Keith Short. Joe Crossgrove, Junior Gautsche, Roger
Miller and Ralph Croninger.
Andy Murbach, Roger Rupp, Jerry Grime, Ed Lauber, Bill Kernig, Junior Gautsche, and Jon Pettegrew were
given recognition in the selection of the all league teams and honorable mentions.

Again this year, the football squad chose a Queen and court to reign
over the Homecoming Game, which was played against Ottawa Hills.
Barbara Rich, a senior, was selected to be the queen. The court con-
sisted of CoNette Nofzinger, Janet Wyse, Joan Beck, and Donna Bald-
A large crowd turned out to view the game, which was won by Arch-
bold 34 to 20g a fine ending to the royal festivities.
The Blue Streak Baseball Team enjoyed a fine year in 1953-54. They
won 15 games and lost only two. Both losses were by one rung to
Defiance Z to 1 and Deshler in the District Tournament 3 to 2. Deshler
went on to win the District title.
The Streaks won the County Championship, beating Delta 8 to 1,
Lyons 11 to 0, and Fayette 7 to 0. They also won the Maumee Valley
League Championship with a record of 8 wins and no losses.
Roger Schantz, Andy Murbach, Jack Miller, and Stanley Buehrer
shared the pitching duties. Philip Buehrer and Doyle Hayes did the
Andy Murbach, Roger Schantz, Bill Kernig, Eddie Lauber and Everett
Wyse were lost by graduation. Prospects look fairly good for another
winning team next year.

The Blue Streaks engaged in their second season of golf and recorded victories over Bryan and Maumee
Valley. They participated in the Montpelier Invitational Tournament and in the District Tournament at
Heather Downs, Toledo.
Much interest has developed in this sport and the future should produce some more better than average
high school golfers. This sport has great carry-over value and will provide life-long recreation for its
lames Clingaman, Andy Murbach and Joe Crossgrove were the top players. All three will be lost by
graduation. Others who took part in most of the meets wereg Neil Spengler, Bob Kleck, and Tom Mekus.
Gene Sauder, lr. Gautsche, and Ir. Schantz, also saw limited service.
Next year there will be a good number of underclassmen on hand to form a good squad.

DR. R. O. RYCHENER
RYCHE ER AWARD
Dr. Ralph O. Rychener, an Alumnus of Archbold High
School, and nowa successful surgeon in Memphis, Tennessee,
who has long been noted for his very generous moral and
financial support of 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 dis-
played a keen interest in local school affairs.
The award is made on the following basis: Thirty per cent
athletic abilityg thirty per cent scholarshipg twenty per cent
general school attitudeg and twenty per cent neatness and
personal appearance. In 1952 a slight revision was made in
the award making the cash payment of the one hundred dol-
larsonly if the winner goes on to college. If he does not con-
tinue 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,
19465 Gerald Lehman, 19475 Paul Sigg, 19483 Arthur Kleck,
l949gJohnC1air, 1950g Dale Leu, 19513 Ralph Burkholder, 1952:
and Paul Yoder, 1953.
