E541 BAND Great strides have been made by the Elicla High School Band during the past school year. This group of music makers, now 41 strong, has Worked hard to present several well-received concerts this year. Besides its achievements in the concert line, the band has proved itself equally proficient on the march, participating in a number of parades and presenting a fine half-time show at each football game, complete with several unique formations. Mr. Tinianow, our conductor, has done a fine job in building this unit and developing the Iunior Band, so as to make the band bigger and better in the future. ll DRUM MAICRETTE LaDonna Furry MAIORETTES Marlene Miller, Mary Lee Iohns Darlene Daniels l l55l GLEE CLUBS The twenty-tour voice Boys' Glee Club, under the direction ot Mr. Tinia- now, became the largest in the history of the school during the past year. This increase of interest in music among the fellows is very encouraging to the Music Department. We sang at numerous programs with great success this year, and look foreward to a bigger and better year, beginning next September. Our female song birds, the Girls' Glee Club, experienced an interesting, sucessful, and elevating year. The twenty-eight members of this group ap- peared on a number of programs during the past nine months. We wel- comed Miss Lois Oyer as our director in this, her first year of teaching. She did a time job, and Working with her has been both pleasurable and in- structive.

MIXED CHORUS The Mixed Chorus, boasting iorty voices, added to the laurels ot the Music Department by presenting several pleasurable performances during the past year. The high point of the year for the entire vocal department was the annual Allen County Eisteddtod, held on April 22. The chorus, led by Mr. Tinianow, was the best balanced in years, and all- round enthusiasm toward music was quite high. ll this feeling continues to grow, We may expect big things of our school musicians in the future. l57l CALENDAR SEPTEMBER -The opening day of school. -Introduction of teachers to students. -Freedom Train Parade. -Freedom Train was in Lima.

A Q Xgv-we ATTENDANTS Carol O'Lary LaDoyt Snow Shirley Shenk Glen Kilgore Elaine Glass Iohn Shock QUEEN FERN WELLS KING LARRY STEVELY 'P SENIOR PLAY The Senior Class Play, "The Atomic Blonde", was presented on April 27. This three-act mystery-comedy featured a cast of fourteen seniors under the direction of Mr. Herbert Searcy. The cast included: Bill Holtzapple ..... ........ B ob Nickerson Helen Miller ..... ............. O riole Byrd Lila Stirn .......... ..... K atinka Katzenpheifer Don Holtzapple .... .....,..... S kid Werling Ioe Crernean ..... .... P arsimonius Iackson David Miller ....... ......... D oogie Deane Stephen Crites ..... .,.. S ylvester Butterfish Edna Holtzapple ..,.. ......,.... M rs. Pratt Charlotte Zerkel . . . ....

Mrs. Adelaide Burkeliegh-Banks Marilyn Hollar ........ ...,...., D oreen Burkeliegh-Banks Dolores Kidd ...................,..,........ Betty Hartford The action took place in a hotel, which Bob Nickerson KBill Holtzapplel and Skid Werling lDon Holtzapplel were attempting to manage during the sum- mer to raise funds with which to continue their college education. Things looked encouraging when news was received that Miss Maisie DeWolfe, a celebrated author, was going to stay there for some time. Her anticipated presence drew such roomers as Mrs, Adelaide Burkeliegh-Banks lCharlotte Brenneman! and her daughter Doreen fMarilyn Hollarl, Miss Wil- ella Wylie CCharlotte Zerkell, Finchley St. Iohn, lll CDon Follasl, and Gurney Maddox lBill Weaverl, all wishing to rub shoulders with such a celebrated personage. But it turned out that Miss DeWolfe couldn't come, so Doogie Deane CDavid Millerl assumed the role of the writer, also known as the "Atomic Blonde," complete with wig, dress, high falsetto, and sex appeal. Doogie went through with this due to threats by Bob and Skid to turn him over to the town constable, Syl Butterfish lStephen Critesl, who is hot on Doogie's trail, be- cause of a speeding indictment. Further confusion is added by Mrs. Pratt l'Edna Holtzapplel, who mas- querades as the "Headless Haunt." The romantic interest is inserted by Bob and Betty CDolores Kiddl, Skid and Doreen, and Katinka CLila Stirnl and Syl, the human bloodhound. The colored servants, Oriole Cl-lelen Millerl and Parsy Uoe Cremeanl helped to keep the audience laughing. Mr. Searcy is to be congratulated on his fine job of directing this pre- sentation.
