On the morning of 'September 6, 1944 at 9:00 A,M. 48 little boys and girls entered the Kindergarten room
for the first of their school experiences. Their teacher, Mrs. Walter, was waiting for them and gave them a very

Mrs. Burkholder was the fifth grade teacher. The class gained Verlene Nafziger and lost Clara Springer.
Their last year in the elementary building was a big one, for they entered a brand, new building. Mr. Robison

Their class colors were Royal Blue and Light Blue, the class flower - gardenia, and the class motto, "We Can
Because We Think We Can".

On May 7 the first Senior Play, "Three Girls and Jeffry" was presented and on May 14, "Mammy's Lil' Wild

me great pleasure to present Miss Brenda Pursel, the nation's Secretary of Health, Education and Wel-
"Thank you, Tony Gerkins. And now Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the president of the Newsman's
Guild, Fred Gearing."
"Thank you, Brenda. It certainly is an honor to present all of our classmates to the nation via televi-
sion from this spacious Hollywood Bowl."
"Indeed it is Fred, and here is the first one. In the field of political science, the President of the
United States, Myrl Sauder. Next, Gene Graf, Secretary of Agriculture, then Junior Schantz, Secretary
of the Navy. Here is the senior senator from Ohio, Ilva Nafziger, and sitting on her right, the Rev.
Veryl Roth, Chaplain of the Senate. Veryl is followed by his wife, the former Norma Burkholder, now
head of the Society for the prevention of Contagious Diseases. Norma is well known for her fight a-
gainst Scarlatina. She really belongs in the next category, Fred, the field of Medicine. Suppose you
introduce the principals."
"That I will, Benji. After Norma, we have Dr. William Palmer, now head of the College of Obstetrics
in darkest Africa. His wife-assistant, the former Vee Schlatter, and he have made remarkable advan-
ces in educating the natives in this territory. Elaine Frey is head of the Physical Therapy department,
and has found a companion in a little brown chimpanzee. In the adjoining hospital, Florence Herbert,
the head nurse, is assisted by Verlene Nafziger, Wynemia Klopfenstein and Louise Nofziger, the heads of
the various departments.
Now I present Mr. and Mrs. Tom Stevens fthe former JoAnn l-Iuffmanj now living in Antartica. JoAnn
is working on a cure for frost-bite in the Bajanjo Hospital, thus named for its founders, Balbina Lisak,
Janeth Schantz, and Joan Lovejoy. Tom is head football coach of the University of Antartica. His
Assistant football coach and also Music Director is Beryl Grisier.
That introduces us to the field of sports, with Ben Westfall leading the way. Ben, now in his eighteenth
season with the Cleveland Indians, is an All-Star shortstop and has a lifetime batting average of.358.
His roommate is the manager, Doyle, Tubby Hayes. Doyle and Ben have set up bachelor quarters in
rooms under the stadium. Their landlord is Carl Guerrero, who made his fortune on quiz shows, The
Guerrero Stadium was designed by Joan Williams of Williams, Williams, Williams and Williams Ar-
Now, Brenda, would you like to present our classmates who are in the field of entertainment."
"O.K. Fred. First, we have Ramiro Trejo, who received the best actor of the year award for his por-
trayal in "Around The Sun In 80 Days". Next is Janet Myers, who has just received her fifth gold rec-
ord from Mecca Records, commemorating the sale of her five million records. Her husband, disc
jockey, Roger Vonier, is responsible for her success. Dreamy Dewey Penrod, the successor to Elvis Pres-
ley, is now approaching. Dreamy is attired in an aqua and orange zoot suit, Penrod is the latest heart
throb since the Pelvis. Janis Peters, successor to Liberace, is giving a concert in this very bowl on
Friday night. Janis bids everyone to attend.
And now, before we continue, a word from our sponsor, "Storrer Motors. For the best Service in town,
see Gary Storrer, at Storrer Motors. He has the best in used cars and his own Storrer 8 is the number
one road car in America. So, drop in tomorrow and see Gary Storrer."
"Rev, Larry Fish wishes me to invite all of you to his tent meeting in Burbank next Thursday. Larry
has established one of the largest tent revivals in America. And now, I would like to present the
principals in a field close to my heart, Education. In my capacity I rather control the field, and I
must say without prejudices, that Margret Rupp is a symbol for all educators in the country. Her as-
sistant, Jeanette Sauder, and Maggie have made the American School System proud of Ohio Educa-
tion. Donna Jo Baldwin has been named teacher of the year and I am happy to present her with this
award for her achievement. In our home town highschool, Archbold, another classmate, Lois Myers,
has succeeded Miss Fagley, after a ten year apprenticeship as an English teacher on a college level.
Rex Short another classmate, is head of the Agriculture Department at MSU, East Lansing. You know,
we have many aspiring classmates who entered the field of agriculture. Suppose you present them
"Fine. First, the Farmer of the Year, Curtis Zaerr and his wife, the former Margaret Zuercher, are
well known in agricultural circles throughout the country for their scientific methods of farming. Ran-
dy Wyse, Farrner of the Year for 11 straight years with his 7000 acre turkey farm is now retired, and
living a life of ease in Florida. Ronnie Fielitz has made his first million as a livestock broker, with
Gary Pickett his chief Transportation officer. Ronnie Gigax, the leading tomato farmer in the state
for four years rxmning is next. Working for Ronnie as fore man is Bob Hausch. They flew to the coast
last night i'n Gigax's plane, piloted by Bob Steensen. Earl Riegsecker is the Vo-Ag teacher at Arch-
bold, taking over when Mr. Gallaway retired."
"Well, Fred, if nothing else, our class should eat very well! Now, before we go any farther, I would
like to present Arletta Kennel, a model. Arletta has been modeling Airplanes for Boeing for the past
seven years. Gary Rupp is the head of the Accounting Department at Boeing.
You know, Fred, that many of our people have had 'secretarial careers. Janet Erbscorn is secretary to
Mr. Jacob Burkholder, State Supt. of Schools. Carolyn Miller is the head of the office staff at LaChoy.
Doris Thomas and Grace Waidelich are her right hand girls. Arlene Rupp is President Sauder's private
secretary. Donna Gaddis is a C.P.A. and has her own office in Washington and has become well
known, helping various classmates with their income tax problems. Carolyn Bridges is a timekeeper
for U.S. Steel, working in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Now, Fred, suppose you present the rest of the class, in their miscellaneous occupations."
"All right, we'll move right along to Sandra Hall and Pauline Leininger, owners of Sapaul's, world
famous beauty salon in New York. Their chief customer is Dorthy Leu, fashion model for Fogue Maga-
zine. Last year Dorthy was selected as Miss Fire Extinguisher of 1976. Sondra Miller is a flight
stewardess for Georgia Airlines."
We hope, Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow students and classmates that you have enjoyed this Prophecy
as we have inbringing it to you, and in closing, we wish to say that we are both very proud to have
been a part of the Archbold High School Class of 1957.

The Archbold High School Science Departments and the Quadri-County Science Club experienced another out-
standing year in the various fields of science. As usual they exhibited many projects at Bowling Green and at the
State Academy of Science exhibition. They came home with more than their share of Superior and Excellent Iat-
The seventh annual Quadri -County Science Fair was better than ever. More than 300 projects were entered and
the general quality of the work done was much improved.
The high lights of the season were achieved by Vee Schlatter and Myrl Sauder. They were the finalists in the
Science Fair and their projects were exhibited in the National Science Fair, Los Angeles, California. These two
students, accompanied by Mr. Clark, their instructor and Mr. Spengler, Supt. of Schools traveled to Califomia by
TWA Airlines. It was a fine experience and greatly enjoyed by all of them.
Vee Schlatter was also a Westinghouse Talent Search Winner and enjoyed a week in Washington, D.C. as guest
of that corporation.
Mr. Miller again taught Eighth Grade Science and started many of his pupils on the road to scientific knowl-
edge. Four of his pupils achieved Superior ratings at Bowling Green.
Bill Palmer was the president of the Science Club and did a fine job in leading the group on to another very

Good scholarship is considered one of the most important goals of our educational system. Considerable emphasis
is placed upon a testing program which includes the Every Pupil Tests, Senior Scholarship Tests, Preliminary District
State Tests, Eighth Grade Tests, and Final District State Scholarship Tests.
Archbold students have excelled in scholarship even as they have in science, music, athletics and all other de-
partments of the school.

The Archbold High School Band enjoyed another fine year. The marching band did a fine job at all home foot-
ball games. They made the usual number of appearances during the school year, always being available when the
community had need for their services.
For the fifth consecutive year they won a Superior rating in State Competition. This achievement is a good
indication of the quality of the band.
George Borich served as director of the band and did an excellent job in continuing the high type of achieve-
ment which has become a part of local tradition.

The Blue Streaks had their first losing cage season in more than a dozen years. The loss of the entire team
from the previous year, by graduation, proved to be a major handicap as this years team lacked experience.
They played many fine games and lost several close ones which were decided by the breaks of the game. In
tournament play, they lost two close games in bowing out.
Losing seasons must be expected in all sports every so often and even though it was a new experience for the
team and fans, everyone lived through it in good shape.
With four starters back for next year and a freshman team which won 18 straight games, including the county
tournament, prospects look good for some more good teams in the future. Bob Hidges, Gary Myers, Vic Miller,
and Mike Sullivan are the returning starters. Tom Stevens, Doyle Hayes, Bill Palmer and Ronnie Fielitz are the
graduating seniors from the squad. Bob Bridges won high scoring honors and Tom Stevens won foul-shooting
Ayersville won the State Class A Championship, and Middletown again won the AA title.

The Bluestreaks experienced a very rough season on the gridiron. They played an extremely rough schedule
including their NBC schedule. The boys won only two and lost six. The Streaks played good football in most of
their games, especially against Wauseon and Liberty Center. Ottawa Hills and Montpelier had too much offense
for the Streaks and rolled up large scores. The Streaks finished fifth above Delta in the NBC Conference.
Edward Sutherland and Tom Vitello coached the Varsity.
The Jr. High squad was coached by Ben Londeree.
The following seniors were lost by graduation. Doyle Hayes, Randy Wyse, Bob Steensen, Bill Palmer, Ben West
fall, Duane Penrod, Tom Stevens, Gary Storrer, Junior Schantz, and Gene Graf.
Doyle Hayes and Rex Ziegler were chosen on the NBC for their fine performances.

The 1957 Track team was made up of mostly Freshmen. Many of the upper classrnen found themselves too busy
with other activities to report for this spring sport. Consequently several lettermen from past years were not avail
able for the squad.
The boys gained much valuable experience and if they. continue to work diligently during their remaining
school years some of them will become excellent performers. Bill DeGroff, James Fiser, Dean Beck, John Rich,
Herbert Ruffer and several others gave some impressive performances.

The 1957 Golf squad which saw action in five events for Archbold High School was composed almost entirely of
Freshmen. All of the letter winners were Freshmen. Their scores were not low and the boys did not win any
matches but if they keep on playing by the time they are Juniors they will begin to be heard from. Golf is a dxf
ferent type of game. The boys enjoy playing the game regardless of whether they win or lose. It is a game of in
dividual effort and all golfers always hope that they will hit them better the next time out.
are looking to the future and hope to be heard from before they graduate from high school

Dr. Ralph 0. Rychener
Dr. Ralph O. Rychener, an Alumnus of Archbold
High School, and now a successful surgeon in Mem-
phis, Tennessee, who has long been noted for his
very generous moral and Hnancial 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. Ryche-
ner'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 ability, thirty per cent
scholarshipg twenty per cent neatness and personal
appearance 3 and twenty per cent general school
attitude. In 1952 a slight revision 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 fac-
Former winners of the award were as follows:
Aden Storrer 19465 Gerald Lehman, 19475 Paul
sigg, 1948i Annu: meek, 19495 John chu, 19505
Dale Leu, 19515 Ralph Burkholder, 19525 Paul Yoder,
