The 1972 annual homecoming began with a snake dance
through the business district of Archbold which rai ;ed the spirit of
Archbold fans. The snake dance ended with a bonfi e in the park.
On Friday, October 27, the traditional supper was served by the
Band Parents. Everybody gathered by the football field for the
highlight of the night, the crowning of the queen. A win by the
Bluestreak team added to the colorful homecoming event.

"Freedom is Slavery,” "War is Peace,” these slogans rang across the
stage of Archbold High during the Junior-Senior class production of
George Orwell’s "1984.” The play was directed by Mr. David A.
McDonel, and it gave evidence to the possibilities of what might happen
in a country where the leader, "Big Brother” controlled all thoughts and
actions. The story centered around an illegal love affair of Julia and
Winston, and the way the Party, through Comrade O’Brien controlled
their thoughts and lives.

On April 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17th, the Archbold Choir presented "The Music Man.” The outstanding production was
played to five sold out houses. Every night the audience was generous with their applause and gave the cast standing ovations.
The musical which recreates small town America around 1912, told the story of a traveling salesman who came to River
City, Iowa. Mike Lindhorst as the lead charmed the people into buying musical instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band
and guaranteed to teach them how to play — although he didn’t know one note from another. "Professor” Harold Hill, the
Music Man captured the heart of the town, and in turn surrendered to the charms of Anne Hackett, who was River City’s
pretty "Marian the librarian.” The play itself which is considered a classic has such rousing tunes as "Seventy Six Trom-
bones” and the lovely "Till There Was You.” This 4th annual production was appreciated by the audience and will be long
remembered by the cast and the school.

Linger. . . on . . . and. . . on . . .Junior-Senior
On May 11th the Junior-Senior prom was held. "Rome”
was the theme around which this year’s Juniors planned the
night of activities. After the delicious dinner the classes
watched a fascinating show by a hypnotist. Other activities
which helped make the evening memorable were a formal
dance, the movie "The Solid Gold Cadillac,” bowling, a
rock dance and finally breakfast. This year’s prom was one
of a group of events which helped to make the Senior’s
final days of school memorable.
76For what is a man
What has he got
If not himself
Then he has not.
To say the things
He truly feels
And not the words
Of one who kneels
The record shows
I took the blows
And did it my way,
yes, it was my way!

"A great year,” that was the only way to describe it. The first of August saw
15 seniors, 8 juniors, and 9 sophomores who would not accept the word
defeat. From the senior leadership down through the juniors and sophomores ,
the word was win. It was a winning season which saw the only defeat come
from the hands of arch-rival Napoleon.
The year also saw a number of men named to all league teams, with Kevin
Wyse being named special mention all-state at offensive halfback and Jerry
Zuver was named second team all-state at defensive back.
The boys, the coaches and their fans will remember the year with pride and
satisfaction of a job well done.

Although the final tally of team wins does not show it, this was a great year for Cross
Country at Archbold. Coach Faler in his first year, provided fine leadership for the large
and inexperienced squad of boys who tried this sport. A trip to Lake Michigan Sand
Dunes as well as having breakfast together before the Sectional meet, welded the group
together as a "Team.”

In describing the Streak roundballers. Coach Jack Miller called them a tremendous defensive team allowing opponents
only 55 points. No team scored in the 70’s against the Streaks and six teams were held in the 40’s.
The lack of offensive punch caused the number of losses as 8 games were lost by the sum average margin of 4.7
points. The worst defeat was by only 10 points.
Highlight of the season was winning the "AA" Sectional, which was the Streaks 8th sectional title in the last 9 years!
The Streaks then lost to Rossford, ranked 5th in final state AA polls, in a real thriller at the District tournament at
Whitmer by a score of 66-64.
Jerry Zuver capped a tremendous career by being unanimously named to both the NBL and NWOAL first teams for
the second year in a row. Jerry was also All District "7” First Team Selection, and Special Mention All-Ohio in AA.

The Archbold High School golf squad under the direction of Larry
Lirot was a young team. The majority of the team will return next year,
including Archbold’s two district placements, Andy Brodbeck and Glen
Patterson. Both players who shot in the low 30’s should give a very
bright outlook for the next golfing season.

year head coach John Young, compiled a 11-4 won-lost
record. The team was led by ace pitcher Dave Kleck, and
five other seniors. Although the team failed to get any tour-
nament wins, they still added one more victorious season to
Archbold’s baseball program.

At the beginning of the season, the A.H.S. track program had nowhere to go
but up, and up it went. Seven one-year lettermen, and two, two-year lettermen
returned, and under their coaches Riddle and Faler, the program came alive.
Surprising many people, the team’s strength was in the field events and relay
teams. The mile relay team broke the school record 3 times, and it now stands
at 3:40.3. The team consisted of Kevin Eicher, Dave Bernath, Steve Lange and
Tom Oberdieck. Archbold’s field events were led by Jerry Zuver in the long
jump, and Jerry and Jim Ebersole in the high jump. Jerry placed first in the
sectional and district and qualified for the state meet in the long jump. Jim
placed among the top 3 qualifiers in both sectional and district and also quali-
fied for state.
The team will lose 12 seniors, but there is still a good solid backbone left
behind for future A.H.S. track teams.

Mr. McDonel decides on MUSIC MAN for this year’s performance.
Suzette Loiningcr, Pam Wanemachcr, Palsy Row» . Stephie Rettig. Peg
Keim, and Deb Wesche gave fine accompaniment throughout the year.
Recognition of the Vocal Music Department grew
vastly this past year as both the Mixed and A Cappella
Choirs presented superior concerts. Archbold was fortu-
nate to host a winter concert with the West Ohio Method-
ist Ministers Choir. The chorus was further honored as
they visited Mr. McDonel’s Alma Mater. At Ohio North-
ern University they presented a truly moving interpreta-
tion of Vavaldi’s Gloria.
As the Freshman Choir worked hard on contest music,
the Combined Choir spent morning, afternoon, and eve-
ning on their annual musical production. MUSIC MAN
was performed in front of a full house April 12, 13, 14,
16, and 17.

107Marching Band ’72
From hot August days to cold November nights the 1972 marching hand showed fine
precision drills and one of the best musical sounds ever presented at an Archhold Halftime
performance. The new bright blue uniforms added a new zest as the band marched at both
home and away games. A highlight of each show were the majorettes led by Miss Sandy
Lantz. They entertained with such feats as a double baton routine and twirling fire to the
music "Light My Fire.” Mr. Thomas Ehrman was director of the fine ’72 marching band.
Pride and appreciation of a fine department are part of the tradition for superior music with the Archbold High School
Instrumental groups. Under the direction of Mr. Thomas Ehrman, both the Symphonic and Concert band gave high quality
performances, which showed many weeks of practice and hard work. There were also many talented individuals in the band
who formed ensembles which performed at school functions and districts and state music competitions. The band continued
its excellence in performance by winning Superior Ratings at both district and state level.

"Leather Work"Industrial Arts Stages a Show
Spanish Club Held a FiestaTwo and two are four,
Four and four are eight;
That’s all you have on your businesslike mind.
Two and two are four
Four and four are eight;
How can you be so blind?
Inch worm, inch worm, measuring the marigolds,
You and your arithmetic, you’ll probably go far.
Inch worm, inch worm, measuring the marigolds,
Seems to me you’d stop and see how beautiful they are
Board of Education
I walk the unfrequented road
With open eye and ear;
I watch afield the farmer load
The bounty of the year.
A beauty springtime never knew
Haunts all the quiet way;
And sweeter shines the landscape
Thro’ its veil of autumn haze.
1 face the hills, the streams, the woods.
And feel with all akin;
My heart expounds; their fortitude
And peace and joy flow in.

ent ami the hoard of education has a pleasant
smile for everyone.Bring a principal is searching . . .
Stand, in the end you’ll still be you;
One that’s done all the things you
set out to do.
Stand, there’s a cross for you to bear;
Things to go through if you’re
Stand, for the things you know are right;
It’s the truth that the truth makes
them so uptight.
Stand, all the things you want
You have to compete and there is
Stand, Stand, Stand!
