Ohio State University, M.A. Problems of American Democracy and American Government Public schools and public education have from our early beginnings been foundation stones for our American way of life. The opportunities for education and self betterment are available to all Americans. The schools are supported and financed by the people of our school district and the people of the state of Ohio. We have an obligation to these people. Every student should accept this opportunity and show his gratitude by a sincere effort to effect better scholarship and student citizenship toward the goal of becoming a worthy, effective adult citizen in post school life. Your school and your community will be proud of you if you make your days in school really count toward this end. I would like to take this opportunity to compliment the Annual Staff and their advisors for the successful completion of this fine yearbook. I would also like to wish our Seniors the best of luck in their post school endeavors. If their time has been well spent, they are more likely to find their proper niche in life.

Algebra Geometry General Mathematics Higher Mathematics The 1953 Memories, which is an annual summary of events throughout the present school year, contributes much to our school. "The good old days" can be returned very vividly by these snapshots, photographs, calendar records, etc. As we leisurely glance through these pages, we find memories of events as they happened in your school life. Each year contrib- utes new and varied activities, in which the students are participating, in order to prepare for present and future needs and enjoyment. A community should place the best opportunities of self development and realization within reach of all its members who are capable of profiting by them. The new building ad- dition should be a point in this direction. We hope the educative experiences will be useful to you. These experiences should re- sult in desirable growth. As you leave school we wish that you will be a good citizen and a prospective worker, and have social maturity.

SS HISTUHY The seniors of "53" came back to school last fall well aware of the fact that it was their last, never-to-be-forgotten year at Elida High. Many important decisions were made in room 307. Among them was the election of class officers-Rex Slechter, president: Stanley Crider, vice-president: Phyllis Steiner, secretary- treasurery and Warren Smith, Iohn Ruby, and Bill Hatton, executive committee. Raising enough money to finance a trip to New York in the spring became the foremost concern of the seniors. Selling Reader's Digest subscriptions, greeting cards, and basketball programs, holding cake raffles, collecting scrap and paper, sponsoring the Super-Sonic Min- strel, and presenting the play "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" all came under the head- ing of "Money Making Propositions." The fellows of the class were active in athletics, especially in football. Crena Riley and Ioan Meier were varsity cheerleaders. Several members of the class participated in the various musical organizations - band, chorus, and glee clubs. They performed in the minstrel, District Auditions, the Eisteddfod, and other concerts. Io Ann Lyle and Reed Kline were the Carnival King and Queen: Phyllis Steiner and Barbara Sanner represented the class during Homecoming. Four members took the Ohio State Scholarship test- Ianice Miller. Velma Taylor, Iohn Ruby, and Phyllis Steiner. These four, together with Warren Smith, Robert Ruff, and Barbara Sanner comprised the seniors' representation in the county Honor Society. We regret that Iames Glass, one of our class members since the first grade, was not able to be with us this year because of illness. We missed you, Iim. Best of luck to you in the future. Our class motto "Out of School's Life, into Life's School" voices the meaning of Com- mencement Day. We hope that life's school will be as rewarding and enjoyable as our school life.

The Junior executives were Virgil Huber, President: Ioan Parrott, Vice President: and Kay Shenk, Secretary-Treasurer. Jeanine Wade represented our class at Homecoming and Peggy Cox and Buz Steiner at the Carnival. The Iuniors were well represented on the gridiron, the basketball court, and the baseball diamond. To Gary Fowler went the honor of being co-captain in basketball. Kay Shenk and Kay Miller were varsity cheerleaders. Other students were active in the band and choruses. The highlights of the year - the Christmas Dance: our class play, "The Little Dog Loughed": the arrival of our class rings: and the prom - were ably supervised by our advisors. Miss Iones and Mr. Schreiber. With cherished memories, we, 54 of us, look forward to our last year at Elida. 19 -if vm -.r Y lvviuvw 7'1"-'fy 'tw x ia W ar? s-.- "JF fo., 'vv ,Q SUPHIJMIJRES Craig Boate Paula Bryan Robert Burden Dan Cheney Fred Comston Phyllis Cook Ronald Coolidge Connie Detrick Ioan Gannon Doris Githens Don Glass Ben Gleason Shirley Grapner Ronald Green Ianet Hilleary Nancy Hines Lynda Holtzapple Karen Iohn Dick Kesler Iohn Kirkendall Danny Kline loe Leisure Peggy McConnell Helen McGue Robert McKinney Carolyn McRea Gene Marshall Kermit May Lois Meier Ioyce Mikesell Kay Miller Martha Kay Parrott Ralph Reed Calvin Reese Ronnie Reynolds Noah Sherrick Carol Smith Sarah Srouie Ianet Thompson Roger Unland Phyllis Wagner Dorothy Welker Irene Weaver Anne Wilord FHESHMEN Iames Barnhart Tillman Bear William Bear Sonya Best Kay Bowers Sarah Brandt Don Britenriker Carolyn Buettner Catherine Busick Betty Clark Marilyn Cox Lowell Crider Robert Davidson Mama Dawson Richard Dawson Robert Dotson Sue Edwards Bud Evans Carl Evans Charles Fair Pat Foust Mary Franks Bill Good Roetta Good Georgianna Harrod Leonard Hartman Shirley Hawk Elnora Heath Donald Hedges Robert Holmes Carol Houston Patricia Huber Garneta Huber Robert Keller lack Keller Kenneth Lyle Ruth Kirkendall Ianice Kruse Orlo Lewis LaRee Little Robert Lowe lack McConnell Claire McElderry Rodney McKinney Richard Markel Lyle May Barbara Mikesell lean Ann Moore Barbara Mosier Margie Morris Morris Morgret Ronald Nichols Ianet Nusbaum David Peltier Ellis Peters Nancy Phillips Margaret Ramer Evelyn Redd George Riley Robert Robertson Sue Ruby Marlene Sandy Barbara Satteriield Douglas Shenk Velva Sherrick Lisle Smith Gary Sroule Shirley Stalter Shirley Steed Marlene Stemen Iohn Sterling Dale Stever Sam Steiner Paul Swick Dale Young Ronnie Zuber wel S- B-311 ,.

During the year they gave a Christmas program, provided Fred Waring choral arrangement for the Supersonic Minstrel, gave an Easter Cantata, and presented the opera "The Mikado" by Gilbert and Sullivan. "The Mikado" is a Iapanese comedy-love story. Fine singing and direction, and beautiful au- thentic costumes combined to make "The Mikado" a successful presentation.

THE SE IUH BA ll The senior band started the school year off on the right foot by doing half-time shows at the football games. These shows were done in costume. Very often the theme was a Mother Goose story. The arrangements were very cleverly worked out, and the football fans were well pleased with the programs. The band played the accompaniment while the mixed chorus sang a Christmas program. Select members of the band played for the senior class play, and the Super-Sonic Minstrel. Several band members attended the music festivals at Bluffton, February 7 and at Delaware, February 21. The band competed in the District Auditions at Ada, where they received a two rating. Various ensembles and one soloist went to the District Contest at Lima. The senior band ended a very successful year by giving its annual Spring Concert on May 14, after which awards were presented to the members. Con- gratulations to Mr. This, the band's director, for providing the students of Elida with fine band music. 35 EIHL5'ELEE CLUB BUY5'GLEE CLUB GIHL5'BLEE EL B The Girls' Glee Club spent a very profitable year under the directjvn of Mrs. Pearl Cohee, the Club's new instructor. The girls worked hard on several new songs and presented a program for the Farmer's Institute. To Mrs. Cohee fell the task of selecting thirty-five of the fifty girls to sing at the District Auditions and at the Eisteddfod. The Club received a one rating at the State Auditions. Several different girls' ensembles were organized within the Glee Club. These ensembles rehearsed before the whole group. The girls of the Glee Club hope that Mrs. Cohee has enjoyed working with them as much as they have liked singing under her direction.

BUY5'GLEE EL B Mr. This is the director of the Boys' Glee Club. Miss Ianice Miller has done an excellent job of accompanying the group for the past three years. Although they are limited in number, the boys have participated in quite a few activities. These include the Super-Sonic Minstrel, the Eisteddfod, an Easter Cantata, and the comic operetta "The Mikado". Members of the Club sang solos at the District Auditions. The Club has enjoyed these activities, and hopes that future years will be as successful as this year has been. Back Row - Lowell Crider, Morris Morgret, Kermit May. Orlo Lewis. Reed Kline.

Laurie Huntington, a psychology major in col- lege, comes home for the summer. She becomes convinced that the other members of the Hunt- ington household need a little psychoanalyzing, and that she is qualified to do the job. The resuls of her efforts are hilarious.

VARSITY " " The Varsity "E" is an organization which was introduced here by the boys of Elida and which consists only of boys. The fellows are allowed to join only when they earn a letter in the sports of football, basketball, baseball, or track. Every senior member of the club receives a gold charm for whatever sport he has participated in. The club has raised money this year by selling refreshments at the home basketball games and has purchased various gifts for the coaches. This is one organization of which every boy can be and is proud to be a member. The club tries to give the boys a chance to have fun by their annual initiation and also gives them a little work in the selling of the refreshments. 56 SE IIIH HIGH GIHLS' THLETIG SSGGI TIG Lett to Right, Back How - Ioan Parrott, Lois Meier, Phyllis Wagner, Carol Houston, Peg McConnell, Helen McGue, Mary Mayer, Ioy McConnell, Peggy Cox, Ioyce Mikesell, Mrs. Boros.
