We, the graduating class of 1955, take great pleasure in dedicating this
issue of the Blue Streak to the 1955 COUNTY and DISTRICT BASKETBALL
The Blue Streaks won the county title for the fifth consecutive year and
after being runner-up in the district for two consecutive years, they came
through in fine style to annex the District title.
The team won Z3 games and lost onlyZ and went farther along the tourna-
ment trail than any Archbold team had done in years.
Congratulations to the team, the coach, and their loyal followers.

OnJune3, 1980, a former student of Archbold High decided it was time he found out
whatbecame of his classmates. This student whom everyone remembers, is DICK NAF-
ZIGER. Now asyou may have heard, there is a little city, by the name of Archbold, Jr.
This is where Dick headed, because some of the class of 1955 built this city.
Dick's first stop was the turkish bath which was run by none other than TED LOVEJOY
and assisted by his charming wife, SHIRLEY BRIDGES. As Dick came out later, he met
JIM SHORT, who owned the Elite Oil Company, and his wife, ANNEITA BALDWIN who
was president of a bank fjust for amusement.J Anneita left to meet SUSAN FAGLEY who
was to have herhair done at the Paris Beauty Salon that was owned and managed by MARY
GIBSON. Susan was to have her opening engagement at the Blue Moon Nite Club that
very evening. For several years she had traveled with a singing group known as the
"Yodelers" but now she was entering into serious singing.
Just about thattime there was an awful noise out in the street, it sounded like several
cars hitting each other. But after everyone rushed out to see what it was, they saw just
a Jaguar Jeep round the corner lickety -split. Who should be in the car but none other
than the Master Sergeants of the Women Marine Corps, LORETTA KERNIG and DEANNA
BURKHOLDER. They pulled up and started talking to Dick and guess what they had just
seen? BETTY JO SCOTT outside of the local Starlite Theater. She had told them she
was married to BOB ROTH who owned a chain of theaters across the country.
Now who should appear walking along the street but Mayor BOB KLECK, that's right,
our former class president is now a Mayor. He mentioned the fact that he was onhis
way to see Susan's performance and after that he was planning to go to Hernando's Hide-
way where INEZ GUERRERO was doing the mambo.
The next day severalpeople who belonged to the Noonday Gossip Club went visiting
throughout the city. The group included HAROLD WYSE, local weatherman, known for
his perfect record ofnever giving the correct weather, ROGER RUPP, build ing contractor,
WALTER SCHMUCKER and his wife BARBRADNYE GRABER. As they walked by the
hospital, they saw coming out, Doctor NICK HOLIAN Qfamous surgeonj and Doctor
ROBERT VORTHMA N, PediatricianlBaby Doctorj nurse, SHARON STUTZMAN and dental
assistantLYNDA MILLER. Entering the hospital, they encountered CHARLENE STUCKEY
who told them she was married now and had four children. Next the group went to the
school where BARBARA RUFFER is secretary, and BOB FREY is the Superintendent. Right
there in the hall stood the Reverend DONALD NOFZIGER and his wife JOAN SAUDER
talking to two elementary teachers, MARLENE RUFENACHT and PATRICIA LISAK. The
Science teacher, JO ANN BRODBECK and her assistant HELEN SCHULTZ were there.
Together they invented the famous baby diapers that never get wet. Coming out of school,
the group met JANET fDiorJ WYSE, famous Paris Designer. She said that she was going
down to the park to hear DONALD SHORT blow on his horn, the "talking trombone."
As the group came back through town, they noticed a crowd of people standing around
a flagpole. Much to their surprise, on top of the pole was FRED GRISIER, famous stunt
man. Shoutingencouragementtohim was his wife HELEN LODER. Another strange sight
was a line of every conceivable animal traveling down the middle of the street led by
GLEN SHORT and RICHARD STUCKEY. They announced that they owned the SHORT-
STUCKEY Circusand were going to give a performance that night. Guess who was doing
the high-wire act. None other than MERLE SELLER.
The last stop on the tour was to the Green Acres Farm which was managed by RALPH
GRIESER. The farm produced different flavored eggs and its specialty was raspberry-
After visiting in this friendly city, DICK decided to reside among his former associ-

The Archbold Chapter of the National Honor Society was formed in 1950,
and is based on standards set by the National Honor Society. These stand-
ards are Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Service. Eligible stu-
dents must be in the upper fourth of the Junior Class. Sophomores are some-
times selected as probationary members, but they do not become active until
the induction in their Junior year. The students are chosen by afaculty com-
mittee composed ofteachers who have come in contact with the eligible mem-
bers on a fairly broad scale. The selected students must maintain a grade
average of above aC in order to remain in the organization. If they are able
to do this, they become lifetime members.
This years induction was held in front of the student Body in April of
1955, it was a beautiful and impressive ceremony.

This year the "radio bug" hit Archbold with full force. Under the cap-
able direction of Mr. Slesnick, those bitten by the "bug" were organized in-
to a club.
The ARCHBOLD COMMUNICATIONS CLUB, which consists of six licensed
amateur radio operators and three other members who have not yet obtained
their licenses, is a school sponsored club. The club was organized by Mr.
Slesnick and three already licensed operators. The president of the club is
Lee Wyse WNSUAC, vice president, John Rich W8TTV, and secretary, Roger
Vonier WSUAG. John Rich and Roger Vonier have obtained the General class
license which enables them to use voice transmissions instead of being re-
stricted to using code as are the other Novice operators. The other mem-
bers are Beryl Grisier WNSVVM, Bob Grisier WNSWTM, Kriss Stutzman
WN8WTN, Gary Rupp, Rex I-Iornish, and Douglas Rich. The members of the
club had their stations set up at the Science Fair as a radio exhibit. The
club was organized to promote further interest in "ham" radio, and to help
other boys obtain their licenses.

The Sci-Questa Club's main function this year, as in the past five, was
the sponsoring of the Quadri-County Science Fair. This year the fair took
in two days and included a record number of exhibits. Although the Science
Fair kept the members of the club busy, they found time for an overnight
field-trip to Rock Circus, a. geology survey station, which was enjoyed by
Mr. Slesnick, who waslargely responsible for the club's origin, again
served as advisor. The officers for 1954-1955 were Bob Kleck, President-
Curtis Beck, Vice Presidentg JoAnn Brodbeck, Secretaryg Helen Schultz:

The Archbold High School FFA Chapter had a very good year in 1954-55.
They did everything expected of a good chapter. The FFA boys learn much
valuable information and also get practical experience that will help them in
their future years.
The Judging Team won first place in the District, easily defeating twenty-
five other teams. Marvin Lantz won a first place in the state for his work in
electricity. The Chapter also won an award for their work in the field of safety
The school and the entire community may indeed feel proud of this fine or-
ganization as it goes about its task of making farmers and future citizens.

The Blue Streaks enjoyed one of their very best seasons on the
basketball court. With only one regular returning from the previous
season they won 16 games and lost only one during the regular season.
They won 3 games to win the county tournament for the fifth consecutive
year. They moved on to the District Championship for 1955. They lost
their first game in the Regional Tournament at Toledo when they ran
into a hot-shooting Sycamore team. This gave the goys a record of 23
wins and 2 losses for the season. The Reserves won 15 and lost Z.
The Junior High Boys won 13 and lost only 2.
Lockland Wayne won the State Class B title and Zanesville annexed
the Class A Championship.
Philip Buehrer won the foul shooting honors and his name will be
added to the trophy. Robert Kleck was high scorer for the season.
The squad loses Robert Kleck, Stanley and Philip Buehrer by grad-
uation. However, there will be a fine nucleus of experienced players
available for the team next year. Jack Miller, Neil Spengler, Fred
Mehrling,Wilmer Dean Rupp, Larry Short, Tom Mekus, Dale Storrer,
Doyle Hayes and Tom Stevens plus some promising material from the
Reserve and Junior High squads will be on hand to carry on the bas-
ketball traditions for Archbold.
The Streaks added a fine trophy for winning the District title and a
nice one for the County title.

hit their stride they were a very good team and held their own against all competition. They were coached by
Ed Sutherland with Bill Arthur assisting. The varsity won 4 games, lost 3 and tied one. They had no league
affiliations and played as an independent team. Next year they will compete in the newly formed Northern
Border Conference QNBCy which will include Swanton, Delta, Liberty Center. Wauseon, and Montpelier.
The Junior High Team coached by Ralph Thorpe had a good season as they won 5 games and lost 2. The
seventh and eighth grade teams won one and lost one. The Junior High squad will send some fine prospects to the
Varsity squad for next year.

season in the won and lost column. Theywon four games and lost seven. They
were runner-up team in the county and reached the semi-finals in the Dis-
trict Tournament at Holgate. Practically all of their losses resulted from a
lack of hitting and in some cases the fielding was below par. The pitching
was both good and not so good.

Hayes doing the catching.

The Blue Streaks engaged in their third season of golf. Their won and lost record was about even for
the season. They did well considering the fact that several of the boys had no previous experience.
Besides their regular schedule they participated in the District Tournament at Heather Downs, Toledo,
and the Montpelier Invitational Tournament.
More boys are becoming interested in the sport and if this interest continues some good players
should eventually be available. Golf has a great carry-over value and provides life-long recreation
for its participants.
Philip Buehrer, Stanley Buehrer, and Bob Kleck willbe lost to the squad by graduation, Other players
who saw action were Neil Spengler, Gene Sauder, Tom Mekus, Bill DeGroff, Larry Short, Roger Grieser
and Lamar Gisel.

Track was returned to the scholastic sports calendar after a year of absence, A large group of eager aspirants
reported for practice. This number dwindled considerably as it became apparent that track candidates must work
hard and be in good condition if they are to accomplish anything.
Duane Penrod and Bob Frey ran a close race for top scoring honors, with Bob Frey coming out first. Tom Stevens
and Jack Miller were next in order.
