Ohio State University, M.A. Problems of American Democracy and American Government I would like to compliment the Annual staff and their advisors on the completion of their 1952 Memories. This is a worthwhile accomplishment and will help to refresh memories of school life for this generation in years to come. School life should be a preparation for responsible adult living. Our seniors have com- pleted their academic work required for graduation. But they know that the Work of educa- tion is just beginning. It is a lifetime job which never ends. Graduation is only a milestone along the way. I would encourage all students to make their school life count. Develop goals, aims, and objectives early in your school careers. Know where you plan to go. what you plan to do, and how you plan to get there. Then allow nothing to dissuade you or steer you off the path to your goal. . Hard work, sincerity, co-operation, loyalty, and similar good traits will ease the Way to your destination. No goal worthy oi the name will be easy to reach: but with determination and will power, you will succeed.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY In September, forty-three seniors returned to their last year of school at Elida. Since then, one student has withdrawn, and two new seniors have enrolled in our class. They are Norma Stevenson and Barbara Cain. The seniors chose for their class officers the following: Presi- dent, Max Cisco: Vice-President, Robert Miller, and Secretary- Treasurer, Anne Stevenson. A senior girl, Patsy Follas, was chosen by the student body to reign at the Homecoming Game. At the carnival, Marlene Miller and Robert Edwards represented this class. The senior boys contributed much in the athletic field. Many boys earned letters in all major sports. Also, Marlene Miller was elected varsity cheerleader. On March 27 and 28, the seniors very successfully presented their class play, "One Mad Night." In order to earn money for their class trip, the seniors had a doughnut sale, sold greeting cards, sponsored a square dance, had a paper drive, and worked at various other things. All in all, the seniors enjoyed their last year of school very much and, with much regret, are now leaving the halls and classrooms of Elida High School with the hope that the knowl- edge and experience gained in our years at Elida will bring us much success. 12 ANN BHENEMAN "l will my ability to get along with Mrs. Bright to Wes Bryan."

CLASS PROPHECY After serving in the United States' Women's Air Force for twenty years, I decided to retire. I had become a general so I had attained my goal. After retiring, I decided to take a trip around the world. So packing my clothes and calling a cab. I went to the airport. Upon arrival here. I found a large group of people talking excitedly about some famous athlete. I finally managed to squeeze through the crowd and came face to face with him. Much to my surprise it turned out to be one of my old classmates, lim Borotf. I talked to him a few moments and found out that he had just won the world's track award by running the mile in 43 seconds. When asked how he won it, he replied, "I just pretended there was a beautiful blond waiting for me. and I let my conscience be my guide." We got to recalling school days and I asked him about some of our classmates. He said that he saw lean Driver and Stella Frysinger on television the other night. It seems that lean held the national women's wrestling title and challenger Stella beat her by a bear hug. Iim also said that Ann Breneman was running tor President of the United States this fall, and that, if elected. she would get this country out of its financial crisis by not vacationing as much as men Presidents had. Finally I had to say goodby to Iim and get on my plane. I was just about to sit down when a man came running down the aisle and pushed me out of the way, taking my seat. I was going to give him a piece of my mind when I happened to get a good look at him. It was none other than lack Shook. When I asked why he had been so rude Iack re- plied, "I work as an elevator operator in the Empire State Building and I don't have any place to sit while I work." Yes, sir, Iack always told me he was going to go up in the world! I wanted more information about the classmates so I asked lack if he had heard about any of them. He said that lack Kruse and Charles Harrod had devel- oped a new type oi tires. It seems that whenever the tire runs over a nail the tire pushes the nail back out and seals itself up again. The only trouble with these tires is that in the summer they become sticky. You see they are made out of bubble gum. lack also said that Anne Stevenson had just won the World's Roller- Skating and Fancy Figures award. Thinking of Anne, Iack asked me if I knew anything about some of her old pals. I told him that Ioan Rhodes had become a great opera singer. Right now she was making a per- sonal appearance in Carnegie Hall. Her manager is Carroll Cox. Oh yes, Ioan's leading man is Robert Lyons. Rosalie Kieswetter is married and she and her husband own a 1500 acre ranch in Texas. Her house has 23 rooms. Bill Gahman also lives in Texas. I heard that he struck oil one day when he accidentally dropped his shoe and the heel sunk in the ground. He hired lim Fletcher to go about dropping his shoe. Iust at this point, Iack and I were interrupted by dinner. While I was eating I noticed someone staring at me. I looked closely and saw no one else but Deloris DeVore. After saying hello to her I asked her what she was doing now. She said she was married. and she was on her way to see her only son, now at West Point. She said that she had seen Elaine Davidson a couple days before and she was owner of a race track. Two of our classmates, Bob Messick and LaDoyt Little were horse jockeys there. After a night's rest on the plane I arrived in San Francisco, California. I decided to stay here a couple of days so I hailed a cab and headed for a hotel. I was going along looking at the signs when I saw a huge hotel called "Hinton's Hotel." I had heard that Barbara Hinton had moved to California so I told the taxi driver to stop and let me out. As I started through the doors I saw Bob Edwards and Marlene Miller, who, as I found out later, were married, coming toward me. Bob was attending a dairyman's convention and Mar- lene had come to star in a play in one of the nearby theaters. After leaving Marlene and Bob, I went to register. expecting to see Barbara. Instead I found Evonne Stewart smiling at me. She said that Barbara did own the hotel, but she and her private secretary, Shirley Shock, were in Florida on a vacation. Evonne told me that lane McKinney was principal of one of the high schools in San Francisco, and that Susan Cremean was head of the University of California. The next stop on my trip was the Hawaiian Islands. I had been there only a few hours when I met Wilmer Hartman. He had come to these Islands because he was jilted by his girl and wanted to live the rest of his life as a hermit. He said he had planned to move to Alaska, but changed plans when he found out that Don Crowe had moved there because he too was jilted. I now was on my way to Korea. This was now a beauty spot of the world, but even now some of our armed forces are there. I decided to pay our commander a visit. As I was walking down one of the streets, I saw three American sailors coming toward me. As I glanced up at them, I saw them smile at me and say my name. Looking at them again. I discovered three old classmates, Max Cisco, Bill Desenberg, and lohn Miller. They took me to lunch in a little cate and there I found Patti Bryan singing. Patti told me that lohn Githens was the pro- prietor of the place. When lunch was over I said goodbye to the boys and continued on my way to the commander who turned out to be a friend of mine, too, Tom Mitchell, but now he was a general. I then went on my way. Not until I came to Paris, France. did I meet anyone else I knew, There I met Dorothy Edwards and Treva Collins. Dorothy was an expert stylist and Treva was her model. Dorothy told me that Bob Miller was in Paris attending an International Methodist Meeting. I had planned to visit other countries but my time was running short. so I returned to New York. Here I met Betty Unland and Blanche Sanders. They were working as waitresses in the restaurant at the airport. I took a bus for Washington. D. C., and the bus driver turned out to be Bob Hostetler. Returning home I found a new dentist in town. He was Eldon Stirn, and Norma Stevenson was his nurse. As I wearily neared my house I noticed Barbara Cain and her three children going to the park for a picnic. Walking into my living room I found my ol' pal, Ruth Keller, who had just been released from the Women's Air Force because of her health. My trip was now at an end for I had seen all the wonderful people who had been my classmates at Elida High School. -Patsy Follas. 53. lt New t 1 1. Paper staff working? 2. Refreshments over here 3.

It proved quite exciting to all. To many, the high point of the year was receiving their class rings or the presentation of their class play, "Meet Me in St. Louis." Others enjoyed the scrap drives, the cake rattles, or the Leap Year Dance, which the class sponsored to earn money for the Iunior-Senior Banquet. Betty Britenriker was chosen to attend the Homecoming Queen, and at the carnival the junior attendants, Ianice Miller and William Hatton, represented this class. Many junior boys participated in the various sports. Other students were active in band, music, or other organizations in the school. The students are very grateful to Miss Iones and Mr. This, their advisors, for their guid- ance through the joys and hardships of this most enjoyable year, and are now looking tor- ward to the final year at Elida High School. 21 TOP ROW: Ronnie Bowers, Darrel Brant, Herbert Brunk, Annamae Bryan, Peggy Cox, Iohn Crisenberry, Diana Desenberg.

SENIOR CHORUS The members of Senior Chorus, under the direction of Mr. This, have worked hard all year to improve their singing quality. Their major work was an operetta entitled "The Slip of the S1ipper," which was presented February 27. The story is based on the fairy tale of Cinderella. The part of Cinderella was played by Marjorie Reese, and the role of the Prince was sung by Iack Kruse. Other characters were the Countess, Marlene Miller: the Chamberlain, Rex Slechter: Clarabella, Ruth Unlandp Prunella, Martha Parrott: the Fairy Godmother, Velma Taylor: The Super Butler, Robert Lyons: the Head Cook, Ianet Hilleary: the Head Maid, Lynda Holtzapple: the Head Gardner, Warren Smith: and the Head Groom, Brooks May.

N IOR CLASS PLAY The juniors chose as their class play the comedy, "Meet Me in St. Louis." After much hard work, the play was presented December 5. The story was about the Smith family, who, after living in St. Louis all their lives, were about to be forced to move to New York C just as the World's Fair was startingj for economic reasons. But the four daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Smith rebelled, and did all sorts of mischievous tricks in order that they could stay in St. Louis. First, Tootie, the youngest daughter, derailed a trolley. Then came cat throwing, water bombing, leg biting, candy pinching, and wild singing in rapid succession, all with disastrous effects. Soon, however, all troubles were ironed out, and the curtain fell on a happy family and a pleased audience. 43 FUTURE HOMEMAKERS The Future Homemakers of America, under was organized just this year at Elida.

VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1951 Edition of the Elida football team started the season as a big question mark but as the weeks rolled by the boys were tasting a bit of success. Evidently they enjoyed coming out on top, for when they put away their grid togs in November they had posted a record of six wins with one tie and two defeats. They played well most of the way and will probably remember the Shawnee and Columbus Grove games as their most inspiring showings.

To a senior, Eldon Stirn, went the honor of captain. Although they suffered losses, the boys showed good teamwork and, most important of all, good sportsmanship. Also, many oi the underclassmen were given an opportunity to get the experience necessary to a good player. We are looking forward to seeing these boys in future years.
