I started on through the hook hut stopped suddenly at the caption, ".luniors."
This time, after a few mishaps here and there, we had ZS in our class. Kathryn Law'
ton, from Rittman, was again hack with us. This year a few minor changes had heen
made. james Patterson was again chosen president: Rohcrt Thompson, vice presidentg
Wayne Orr, treasurerg LaVonne Benjamin, secretaryg and Harry Frey, class adviser.
This year, I found, we needed a new inspiration to keep us going and soon the Study
Room was seeing a red and white glow hetween the Sophomores and Seniors. Our
first real opportunity came when we gave our class play. We presented "Mrs Tuhhs
of Shantytownf' which proved a great success. From the proceeds we hantlueted the
dignified Seniors at Wooster.
In hasehall and haskethall we were represented hy the same hoys as the year
hefore. Leaning further, I saw that we took more interest in dehate this year. Homer,
Wayne, Glenn, and myself were among those selected to go out and argue with the
other schools. We won iirst place in the county. Glenn represented the school in short
story and won second place in county competition. Glenn, Homer, Leonard, and
Christopher again answered the call of the spirit of music.
This year, we were getting to he more sound and hasie in our education and we
passed through with colors flying.
Next, I came to the word "Seniors!" How this word made a thrill go through
me as I rememhered those last school days. This time we elected new officers and
Glenn Sonnedecker heeame presidentg Wayne Orr, vice president: Harold Henry,
secretaryftreasurerg and Harry Frey, class adviser. We were then on our last stretch.
We were again represented in haskethall and hasehall.
In dehate, six senior hoys made the team. League competition was ahandoned
hecause of the scarlet fever epidemic. Glenn again represented us in short story. We
gave our senior class play, "Here Comes Charlie," which was the greatest success of
many years. We were hanqueted, I saw on this page, hy the juniors, for which we
were very appreciative.
Our annual, I saw hy reading the next page, was a great success and we, the
Seniors of 1934, feel proud, if perhaps unduly, of our record in our high school days,
I pored over other interesting pages and wondered where I had gotten this hook.
Upon looking at the cover, I recalled the day when I had worked on my Class History
for the Class of 1934.

As I was hastily looking through my hooks and magazines, I found one which was
entitled "Our Class." I paused a moment to leaf through its pages and to my surprise
I found in it the story of my high school days. How happy I was that after all these
years I could delve into this hook and recall great pleasures of my youth.
Upon turning the iirst page I heheld a group of 34 students looking very bright
and diligent. Below the picture I saw the names of our first class officers. Homer Milf
ler was president: Raymond Schlegel, vice president: Waiyiie Orr, treasurer: Betty
Myers, secretary: and Class Adviser, Miss Studer. These people guided us successfully
through all our trials and trouhles our first year.
Turning a page I saw we had the misfortune of losing a few this year. Vivian
Stout moved to Wcitister, hut in return Durant Lehman came from Orrville. But to
our sorrow, Charles Showalter left us.
Activities interested our group and Harry Zimmerman and Charles Arnold were
out working in haskethall and hasehall. Margaret Ecker and Irene Peake were out for
girls' haskethall. In music, blames Patterson, Raymond Schlegel, Homer Miller, Glenn
Sonnedecker, and Margaret Ecker represented us. We passed all the exams with a
small casualty here and there, hut we managed to he ready for another year.
Turning a few more pages, I came upon the word Sophomores. Here I found we
had gained and had 35 upon our list. This year I saw wc changed officers. blames I'atf
terson was elected president: Rohcrt Thompson, vice president: Betty Myers, secref
tary: Russell Schmollinger, treasurer: and class adviser, Miss Studer. I glanced' to the
next page and saw a list of those lost and gained during this year. Rittman gave us
Rohert Thompson: Vxfooster, Lena Buchanan: Emerson Metsker from Canton: and
lastly, I found my own name, a transfer from Leroy to Creston. But then, on the other
side was a list of those leaving us Paul Slater, Virgil Bowman, Charles Vxfoodward,
Sylvia Ramsier, Margaret Eeker, and Grant Ditch, Grant went to Burhank to he'
come a school rival.
Again activities stepped in and we had an acceptahle showing from our claw. We
enjoyed our parties at the iirst of the year: and in haskethall we were represented hy
Charles Arnold, Harry Zimmerman. Grant Ditch, Glenn Sonnedeeker, Vkfayne Orr,
Homer Miller, and myself. Out of these Arnold, Zimmerman, Ditch, Miller and my'
sell' were out for the hasehall squad.
Une happening was a great honor for our class. I saw, in large letters under the
liaskethall picture, that Harry Zimmerman won first place in the foul shooting contest
at Wtimmster. Dehate attracted two of our classmates and Homer Miller and Marjorie
Wriglit gained places as alternates. Turning the page, I saw that through all the
trials of the exams and lessons which taunted and tempted us to leave and never come
hack, we were determined to go on and we hoped to meet the next year.
