OH! Come let's sing Elida's praise,
And songs to Alma Mater raise.
While our hearts rebounding thrill
With joy which death alone can still
Sumrner's heat or winter's cold,
The seasons pass, the years will roll:
Time and change Will surely show
How firm that friendship-
Black and Gold.

Problems of American
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.

School. May the pages of this edition instill in the hearts of the students that
which is good and helpful. It is our hope that the school is preparing you to
meet the great demands ot society.
To the graduating class of 1952 may I wish you the best of luck, success.

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 Since then, one student has withdrawn, and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

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.

IUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
In September, forty-tour juniors returned to Elida High School for another year oi study,
hardwork, and fun. 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
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.

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. Other mem-
bers of Senior Chorus sang in choruses.

District Auditions at Ada.

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.
The Future Homemakers of America, under
was organized just this year at Elida. The Club
the direction of Miss Iones
consists of home economics
girls who are interested in home-making projects.

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

This year the basketball team was composed of boys from the sophomore,
junior. and senior classes. They were coached for the iirst time by Mr. Bur-
dette. 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.
