PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF I944 BLUIVIE HIGH SCHOOL WAPAKONETA OHIO RETRO PE tl ,yi fwf17'f' ffi fl, ii W9 Wapakoneta, Ohio Dear Fellas and Girls: ln the days since Pearl Harbor, hundreds of high-school annuals have been dedicated to graduates in the service. They have paid tribute to your courage, your loyalty, and to the valiant way in which you are performing the arduous task of keeping us free. This year's Retrospect is really for you, but we aren't formally dedicating it to you. We believe there is some- thing very dear to all of us, something for which you are fighting that has more real meaning to you than words like "freedom," or "democracy," or "justice," Let's dedicate this book to Wapakoneta, to "Our Town." 'l'hat's really what you're fighting for, isn't it? For the chance to go swimming in the pool on a hot July day, to yell yourself hoarse at a football game with St. Marys, to ga skating on the river some crisp Sunday afternoon, to treat your best girl to a chocolate soda, or to crowd into the gym for a basketball game with New Knoxville? lsn't this what we're all fighting for, here and abroad, not for something so big it can't be touched upon, but for all the little things that make up our own private worlds. www:-W -vm.. ,wo ""--.., 1' mx ,v""' V, 9' Q 'Jr' N.

C it , get-f Fw " Lura Mae Knatz, Don Zimmerman, Mrs. Miller, Chuck Newland Friday By the time we are seniors, we should be able to assume the responsibility of conducting our own affairs, but we still need a wise counsellor-one who knows howto help us govern ourselves, ln Mrs. Miller we have had an excel- lent example of such a counsellor. Besides acting as adviser to the Senior Class, she is also a faculty member of the School Council. Chuck Newland has been the able president of the class of '44 this year and Don Zimmerman has done a conscientious job as president of the School Council. These boys enrolled in the armed services long before school was out, Chuck in the Navy, Don in the Air Corps. Lura Mae, as the class secretary, is one of those dependable people who are so often chosen to handle money and records.

But this time l've really something good to tell you. Today after the Girl Reserve meet- ing, l started thinking back over the other programs we've had this year. The first thing that came to my mind was the time when Rev. Herd gave us a talk on "Boy and Girl Friend- ships." He gave us some very good points to follow. Jane, l'll just never forget the day when we celebrated the birthdays of all girls who had had a birthday since school started. That was November l6. We had fun guessing their ages and listening to them tell why they were such beautiful babies. ln cooperation with the Hi-Y, we held a "Swing Shift" dance in the gym on a Friday night March I7 Since it was a defense dance it was only right that we charge defense stamps for admission. Everyone dressed prop- erly, too. We girls wore slacks or printed dresses and the boys wore overalls. We even brought sack lunches. This year for the first time the Girl Reserve Club has joined the District YWCA, and the three clubs, Red Triangle, Green Triangle and the G. R. have affiliated. I can't help thinking that these wonderful things we have accomplished this year would not have been possible without the helpful guidance of our adviser, Miss Roeder. Heavens! lt's past my bed timel l'll have to quit so I can get up in time for school tomorrow. Always thinking of you, Gerry TOP ROW M Walls M J Werner S Bonnoront M FIFTH ROW Miss Roeder C Metzger J Rypkema M Brown V Rickert Howell E Killian B Knauss E Metzger C Doseck E SECOND ROW M Bal-,ler B Wehne, J 5,dey A Doseck A Lusk B Kohler Wintzer H Lauer J Parlette N Hemmer BOTTOM ROW G Ruck G Haman A Streight N Abe Ti-iiizo Row c Kentner J Woolf J shusfer M R Wfmsof V Pres V Melueg Dfes B Kaffe' SEC Mougey M Shaw M Presar J Schneider A Gustafson E Ankefmon V905 R Hofshbmgef J D'll S DOWS J Harrod A Erb A Bowsher FOURTH ROW R Taylor J Kohler M Walker C Maxson C Knierim J Whiteman G Buddemeyer M McCormick P Irish M Benny , , ll ll I . ..

You probably know a little about it, maybe you were in it. It you were, you will remember all of the good times you had at the parties and meetings. The Sr. Hi-Y has plenty of fun together, but it is a group of junior and senior boys working together to "create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character." The Sr. Hi-Y works at its creed, and many of its meetings deal with religion. Many ofthe local ministers gave us some very interesting talks. Reverend Weissling gave an outstanding talk on Lincoln. Together with the G. R. we gave a Swing Shift Dance that was not designed to make money but to increase the sale of war stamps. Another outstanding social event was a hay ride and party at Johnny Emrick's house. This year we have a new adviser. He is Mr. Kuhlman, our math. teacher. Our officers are Ralph Mertz, president, Chuck Newland, vice- president, and Stan Maxson, secretary- treasurer. Altogether l'm very enthusiastic about the club and had to let you know l was a member. lt's a swell bunch!

At the beginning of the second semester we got our constitution and thus the Green Triangle was established. Our officers are Kathryn Brandt, president, Mary Jane Maxson, vice- president, Betty Knerr, secretary, and Donna Shank, treasurer. Miss Barr is our adviser. The three clubs, the G. R., the Red Rectangle, and the Green Triangle are all a branch of the Y. W. C. A. and we have the same constitution. All the officers meet together once a month and we had one joint meeting of all the members We ve had only o few programs so for but they were all good Once we went down to the gym where Mr Conrad gave an interesting talk Another of our favorite programs was a musical given by Bob Miller who can really swing out on his trumpet and our bandleader Mr Parks We hope to make the Green Triangle a club the school can be proud of Bye now Patty 9-A TOP ROW l Katter M Bowsher S Stultz R Meyers M Hengstler J Merkle M Hover R Stimmel S Yocum D Orphal B Bailey SECOND ROW M Campbell B Batters E Presor M Hartup S Bailey M Stiles R Spaid D Shank K Kah R Minnich D Walls M Lauer L Copeland C Lee BOTTOM ROW M Wills B Basil R Wehner E Lambert B Knerr Z Vent M Maxon M Tester K Brandt E Crow A Burden Miss Barr GIRL GLEE Dear Ellen TOP ROW L Eversman W Wahrer E Hughes J Kentner M Lauer R Stummel M Hengtler M Stules M Walls M Benny G Ballweg B Basul B Scheurholt SECOND ROW B Bauley D Larnmers K Kah E Crow D Walls R Munnuch J Platvoet D Knoch M Tester H Grumes S Yocum S Bauley I Katter M Brackney M Meyers B Brown N Beech THIRD ROW E Harvey M Walls M Longsworth V Haman G Ruck J Merkle C Ruck S Freyer D Schuman M Hartup M Schnell M J Maxson M Freyer Y Gross G Bush J Wunget E Schumann FOURTH ROW G Wahrer J Parlette R Benny E Metzger L Burden C Kneurum P Woolf J Kuhns J Davus M Platevoet M Bowslruer S Schultz D Shank R Wehner BOTTOM ROW L Knatz M Brandt E Copeland W Metz C Kentner Muss Wulluams R l ve just a munute to wrute you before l go to Glee Club Thus year the gurls meet on Monday and the boys meet on Tuesday tufth peruod There are about 80 members un the clubs combuned Muss Wulluams durects both of the clubs whuch makes them good you remember Muss Wulluams' Our only publuc appearance was when we sang for the Sprung Musucal held Aprul 13 and l4 Both clubs dud tune work and gave evudence of the tume spent un practuce The gurls three numbers were Beauteous Morn German The Old Woman and the Peddler Old Englush Aur The Lord s Prayer Malotte The bays numbers were The Peasant and '-lus Oxen Smuth Ashenbrenner Ole P-rks a moverun Carn As ever Ann BOY GLEE IOP ROW D Frame D Keufer G Bauley J Carter Kuber MIDDLE ROW A Swunk B Hartup D Koch B Cook J Frazuer R Cozad G Vetters J Howe BOTTOM ROW D Lock D Scott l Hemmert R Schumann Muss Wulluams L Shank J Butcher M Wellungton J Herrod 57 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1- 1 - 1 - 1 V Wonser, I.

If you were, you no doubt heard a voice pleading for "quiet please, so the strings can tune!" Then when the strings were finally tuned, the Blume High Orchestra, under the capable direction of Miss Elma Williams settled down to practice for the Junior Class Play Senior Class Play or the Sprung Musical whichever hap pened to be coming up at the time Between numbers such as Deep Purple Lyric Overture and various marches including Stars and Stripes Forever you might have heard the students and Miss Williams discussing the relative merits of contemporary musicians and symphonies Those who heard good musical programs let the others know about them If Miss Williams or one of her more fortunate musicians had seen a symphony or smaller group of musicians in action they described their experience to the other members of the orchestra These spontaneous and unexpected dis cussions in the midst of rehearsal stimulated interest in worthwhile music and spread the good news of available sources for hearing such music Well what do you know?

HWEDDI PELL " Thursday Dear Chuck, November l9, I went to the Junior Class Play, "Wedding Spells." lt was a howling suc- cess, and, as you can probably guess, it was a comedy. lt involves Steve, a young bridegroom, who loses his memory and cannot recall the wife he has just married. Ruth, Frances, Angelica, and Nicky are all possibilities, so Steve invites all of them to his house. He has his friend Charlie propose to them all. The one who refuses is supposed to be Steve's wife. Billy Jay, a kleptomaniac, falsely says she is his wife, but in the end Steve finds that Ruth is the girl he married. As usual Miss Hunt did an excellent lab of directing Miss Roeder acted as business manager The cast was Steve ....................................

A. is a club organ- ized for all girls who are interested in athletics. The purpose of G. A. A. is to create good sportsmanship, scholarship, physical efficiency, and athletic accomplishments. Our council acts in somewhat the same capacity as your officers and are chosen by the members for an term of one year. Our officers were Jacquie Kohler, president, Betty Jo Wehner, vice-president, Patty Streight, secretary Mary Lou Mougey treasurer Shir Iey Shaw social chairman Mary Ellen Brown reporter Shirley Bonnoront intramural man ager and Miss Guinevere Lanning faculty adviser Our class representatives were LaDonna Spurlock, senior, Shirley Young, junior, Gloria DeLong, sophomore, and Mary Hartup, fresh- man. We have been working hard trying to ac- quire the l,OOO necessary points for a letter. Several of our senior girls are anticipating G letter by the end of this year. Several ways by which we gain our points are monthly play nights, noon intramurals, gym revues, and bowling, hiking, and biking. The G. A. A. concluded its activities for this year with a gym revue together with the boys' physical education classes. The gym revue consisted of activities in which the classes have participated during the year After such a good beginning we re looking forward to a very active association next year As always Betty TOP ROW R Wehner R B Wonser D Schumann J Rypkema M Howell Q Kah H Culleton P Kontner M Presar M Bahler H Lauer M Shaw O McClintock M Werner A Kahn SECOND ROW G Ruck J Woolf L Viet K Brandt A Burden D Chapman M Fleming C Maxson C Metzger M Rader B Katterhenry B Cole L Eversman B Meeker P Howard N Abe THIRD ROW S Shuler J Whiteman B Knauss E Killian N Codling E Crow K Kah J Merkle J Se tz M tiles I M Tester E Brookhart B Butters I Francis J Hanqen FOURTH RONV J Shuster J Herrod G Hamen M Maxson A Gustafson P I h B Fr tz D Combs I Comer N Hemmer L Schierholt M Walker S Yocum D Orphal B Chesbrough R lngledue FIFTH ROW V Malueg J Sidey M Laurer C Lee Erb J Stoll E Harvey Miss Lanning L Binkley Diehlman J Dll S Davis E Copeland N Fisher Smith J Berry BOTTOM ROW B Shierholt M Hartup M Wills Spurlock S Shaw B Wehner J Kohler M Mougey Bonnorant M Brown M Schnell V Lanning G Delong N Lapole I I I . , ' , . , .

The tantalizing odors of well-seasoned hot soup, baked beans, or meat loaf which escaped to every part of the building in the forenoons were enough to make us hungry, way before lunch timel Mrs. Schmaltz has had plenty of experience in cooking to please hungry boys, since she has three sons, Harold and Eugene in the serv- ices, and Wig, who is a junior this year. We grew to like the new cafeteria set-up of eating in the Study Hall, too. It gave us much more room, and we didn't have any more trouble with food left in the Home Ec. rooms. As ever, Mary Wednesday Dear Fred, Do you remember how we used to aggravate Orval Cannon when we would sit on study hall desks? He would pretend to be hopping mad and scold us like everything, but how we loved it! Orval doesn't work here anymore, and we really miss him. Mr. Kantner, Fuzzy's dad, now has charge of truants, supervises the building at noons, and takes care of all the other work Mr. Cannon did. Mr. Schierholt's duties are the same as last year. He is the engineer who keeps the building heated to an even, healthful temperature-no small task in the unpredictable weather. Mr. and Mrs. Reinhardt's duties seem never to come to an end. They can be seen working at almost any hour of the day and evening, sweeping halls or classrooms, washing windows, and dusting. Yours, Bill Mr. Schierholt. Mr. Reinhardt.

The sports in themselves didn't affect me much, but being a cheerleader does take time and work. We practice one period a week, and have been able to work out several newer and peppier yells in some special sessions. Shirley Shaw, with her acrobatic ability, made a good head cheerleader this year. The other senior on the squad, Jane Dill, deserves special mention for her good work for all four years of high school. That's a long record. We cheered during both basketball and football seasons, and we had at least one cheerleader at all games. l remember two distinct times in the changeable weather of football season when it rained pitchforks and saw logs, but we stayed on to cheer. Miss Lanning, the girls' physical instructor, was our adviser. Her job was to supervise our practices and help us with new yells.
