He appears in various school activities throughout the year. He has also proven to be a valuable asset to the school in other aspects. One incident in the life ofHerkimer may help to illustrate just how indispensable he really is. The scene was Elida's gridiron. The Bulldogs were having a rough time defeating one of their great rivals. The score was knotted at 13-13, but the opposition had possession of the ball. Their quarterback decided to put the game on ice by trying a long pass. He faded back and let fly with atowering spiral. It looked like a sure score when out of Elida's defensive backfield leaped a figure, so fast he was almost impossible to see. But there was no doubt in the minds of Elida's fans. It was Herkimer. He quickly passed the ball to one of the Bulldog's many speedy backs who dashed down the side line to score. Even though this is just one incident Herkimer may be found in many other fields of school life at Elida. He may be found on the basketball court scoring two for E,H.S. or on the ball diamond makinga difficult catch. He may even be found in the class room beside a student who is stumped with a hard problem. Because of this and many other reasons we have chosen Herkimer to represent the typical student in the 1955 Annual. 3 James Arlen Glass CROSSING THE BAR Sunset and evening star And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea. For though from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar. Alfred Lord Tennyson MEMQRIAM C. R. Swank In September of 1929, you came to Elida to teach. You had just been graduated in June from Bluffton College. Your teach- ing meant a lot to you, and after a short time here, you rec- ognized the need of football in the School. Through hard work and planning you had the first football team under way, beginning the season in 1931. Later you became Principal, and in the fall of 1941 you became Superintendent of Elida High School. After one year in this position you answered your Country's call and entered the Armed Forces in 1942, serving until 1945. After your discharge you then came back and assumed your duties as Superintendent. We have known you as being kind, patient, understanding, and always willing to help when needed. We, the Annual Staff and our Advisers, Mrs. Fogg and Mr. Sluss, dedicate the Annual of 1955 to you, Mr. Swank.

S if - SUPERINTENDENT lwish to commend the class of '55 for its part in producing "Memories" for 1955. This rec- ord of school events and ac- tivities will be treasured by present students for years to come. Pictures and stories will help recall many interesting events, experiences, and happy acquaintances at Elida. Producing an annual is one of the many worthwhile experi- ences shared by students who participate in this endeavor. It is good to make a chronicle of school events. It helps simplify making an honest and objective appraisal of work accomplished, experiences shared, and goals reached. This brieffpreface also gives me an opportunity to express my confidence and faith in the youth of today. You are living in an exciting, fast moving, and dangerous world. You will have many choices to make in the years ahead. I have faith and hope that your experience and training in school will help you make wise, fair, and honorable decisions. With faith in yourselves and your fellowmen, and a firm trust in God, your chances of success will be good. Roland Swank PRINCIPAL Memories, 1955, should have a large value and direct , benefit to all the student body and should be very significant for the life of the school. The events of the school year will concern activitie s and organiza- tions of your school life. These pages portray your efforts and happiness in these activities. Each student will receive his I own enjoyment from the se pages 'tiiislatwf which illustrate the life of approximately 940 students. I desire to compliment the personal abilities of those who issued this book and the advisors of this extra-curricular activity. We hope that the students who attend ELIDA LOCAL SCHOOL will be able to reason, evaluate, attain culture, love their fellowmen, have knowledge, and master the basic fundamental skills. Students are in school so they will have happy, useful, and successful lives. All phases of adult life can use a student who has given his best while in school. The right attitude toward life is a great asset. Your success and happiness is determined very much by your efforts.

They im- mediately took up the traditional duties and privileges of seniors by electing class officers. They were Craig Boate, president, Dick Kesler, vice president, and Lois Meier, secretary-treasurer. Doris Githens was elected Homecoming Queen and Lynda Holtz- apple became our senior attendant. Kermit May and Joyce Mikesell reigned as king and Queen of the school carnival. Because of the desire to have a class trip we very diligently worked on a number of group projects. These included scrap drives, sale of Christmas cards, sponsoring carnival booths, bake sales, and many others. Also we must not forget our senior class play, "Night of January 16." A number of the members of the class took the Ohio State Sen- ior Scholarship Test. Some of these students were also members of the county Honor Society. They were Martha Kay Parrott, Karen John, Phyllis Cook, Phyllis Wagner, Dan Cheney, Nancy Hines, Janet Hilleary, and Lynda Holtzapple. The Class of 1955 was also well represented in the field of sports. Dick Kesler and Kermit May served as Football Co-Cap- tains. Other members of the Varsity squad included Bob Burden, Dan Cheney, Dave Morrison, Bud Laing, Ron Reynolds, Tom Os- wald, and Ben Gleason. Dan Cheney represented the class on the basketball court and Dave Morrison, Kermit May, Bud Laing, and Dick Kesler were members of the track team. On the baseball diamond for Elida was Tom Oswald, Ronald Green, and Dan Cheney. As the year comes to a close and commencement and Bacca- laureate pass the seniors have concluded their last year of high school and leave with many pleasant memories behind. Many thanks to the faculty, the underclassmen, and our advisers Mrs. Workman and Mr. Radulovich. 14 sd, Senior Advisors: Mr. George Radulovich, Mrs. Dorothy Work- ITl3ll. X.

Thirty-nine seniors participated in the processional march and then joined the audience in singing, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". Mr. Swank, the school superintendent, introduced the visiting ministers. Reverend Lewis Nichols of the Elida Methodist Church gave the invocation which preceded vocal selections by the Girls' Glee Club under the direction of Mrs. Pearl Cohee. Reverend Paul Zimmerman of the Elida Evangelical United Brethren Church presented the class sermon, "The Crossroads of Life". Janet Hil- leary then sang, "The Lord's Prayer", and Reverend William Peckam of the Allentown Methodist Church concluded the service with the benediction. 22 COMMENCEMENT Commencement exercises for the graduating class were held at the high school on the evening of May 20. Following the impressive processional, Reverend Paul Zimmerman of- fered the invocation. Martha Kay Parrott then sang, "The Little Shepherd's Song". Lois Meier presented the Sa lutatory Address. Karen John and Kay Miller then gave apiano duet entitled, "The Lost Chord". The address to the graduating class was given by'Mr. Lloyd W. Dull of Findlay. The Senior Girls' En- semble sang,"IHearda Forest Pray- ing", followed by the Valedictory Ad- dress by Dan Cheney. Craig Boate, Senior Class president, presented the class gift to Mr. Leis. Mr. Swank then awarded the scholarship medals. Mr. Leis presented the class of thirty-nine seniors for graduation. Mr. Earl Holtzapple, President of the School Board of Education, presented the diplomas. Reverend Nichols closed the formal exercises with the benedic - tion and a, reception of the class by parents and friends followed. JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM One of the most unique and entertaining Junior-Senior Proms in the history of Elida was held May 6, in the school cafeteria and gymnasium. The theme of the Prom was "Paris", and the junior class did an excellent job of building an entertaining evening around it. After Charles Anderson gave the invocation an excellent meal was served. Following the banquet Pat Huber, junior class president,welcomed the seniors and Craig Boate, sen- ior president, responded. A boys quartet, composed of jun- iors, presented several numbers followed by a short comedy skit. The junior class ensemble sang and Ronald Zuber read the Senior Class Prophecy. Morris Morgret then sang a solo. Throughout the program Chester Stemen did an excellent job as toastmaster. After the entertainment the juniors announced their se- lection of the couple to be king and queen of the Prom. They were Dan Cheney and Connie Detrick. The two classes then went to the gymnasium for the dance. The decorations there were quite unusual and one could easily tell that much time and effort had been spent in preparation by the juniors and their advisors, Mr. Ross and Miss Jones. The dance concluded a wonderful evening. 24 SENIOR CLASS TRIP WASHINGTON, D. C. On Sunday, May 22nd, thirty-two Seniors left Lima, for the class trip to Washington D,C, The complete trip was made aboard the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. After getting settled at the Hotel Annapolis, their first tour consisted of trips to Arlington Cemetery. the White House, and the Bureau of Printing and Engraving. On the second day the Seniors and their chaperones, Mr. and Mrs. Swank, were kept busy with tours to the Capitol, Washington's Monument. and the Smithsonian Institute. That evening many of the graduates, along with Seniors of other schools, took a pleasure cruise along the Potomac River on an excursion boat. The evening was high-lighted by a stop at the Wash- ington amusement park. On May 25, the morning was devoted to trips to the F,B,l, and a free period for shopping. Right after dinner the entire class boarded buses for a trip to the Naval Academy. The class then returned to the hotel and prepared for the return trip to Lima. The trip was a great success in every aspect. Mr. and Mrs. Swank did a wonderful job and every student seemed to enjoy each moment of the trip. 6140 inf ...fe , f 'H'- I ll 5.11 I -' X JUNIORS CLASS OFFICERS President .... . . .

The play was quite unusual in that it was in the form of a trial and was the first real mystery presented at Elida. A unique feature of the play was that the audi- ence took a part in the procedure. Twelve persons were chosen to act as the jury and to decide the fate of the defendant. In the trial the State of New York was trying Karen Andre for the murder of Bjorn Faulkner. A number of witnesses were ca1led,and at the end of the third act the jury retired to decide upon a verdict. It happened that one night Miss Andre was guilty and on two others she was innocent. The play, under the direction of Mr. Hayduk, was a great success in every aspect. THE CAST ThelLld3e...... ..... . District Attorney Flint ..... Defense Attomey Stevens . . . Karen Andre ........

"MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS The junior class play was a great success, both as entertainment and fi- nancially. Maudie had a new line for attracting boys which proved to be quite successful, for other girls. Her main problem seemed to be in landing a beau for herself. She also succeeded in fouling up a business transaction between her father and one of the local businessmen. Her mother and her sister tried their best to keep her occupied and out of trouble. As you can easily tell the plot was very confusing, but all turned out well in the end. 4' A X1 EAL... in WHO'S WHO Q iii fu 2 4' lf! Mr. Carter, Director. The band started the school year by present- ing half-time shows at many of the football games. They also arranged a special program for the Homecoming, which proved to be most successful. In addition to these services the band also participated in many other activities. On April 2.3 the band entered the State Band Contest and made an excellent showing. After several other programs the band ended a very successful year by giving its Annual Spring Concert. THE MAJORETTES Barbara Baxter, Drum Majorette. 1 9191?

N ' If BASEBALL The Elida baseball team got off to an excellent start by defeating LaFayette 8-Z on their own diamond. On April 7 they posted their second victory by de- feating Beaverdam 18-2. Upon entering the county tournaments at Gomer they were eliminated 6-0 by LaFayette. Following the tournament the team was de- feated by Gomer in a 3-Z thriller and by Shawnee ll-0. On April 29 Elida was defeated by Spencerville, League Champions, but they closed the seasonwithaconvincing 14-8 decision over Delpos St. John. Although the season cannot be termed as a complete success, Coach Burdette's squad gained much in experience and sportsmanship. 1r"'l'l" ' "' ELIDA'S BATTERY Dick Wagner, pitcher.

TRACK TEAM The track team began practicing almost im- mediately at the close of basketball season and since then has been working hard in preparation for the season's schedule. At the Pandora-Gilboa area track meet they finished second in a field of many schools. On May 7, they traveled to the Annual Olympics held in Lima at the stadium. Here they posted a fine third place with 30 lfZ points in a field of over 15 schools. We feel sure that by the time the current sea- son closes the track squad, under the direction of Coach Schreiber, will have compiled an enviable record. Running Events.

I noticed in the "Space Lines" that CRAIG BOATE was now president of Al Capone Enterprises, Incorporated, manufacturers of wooden hall passes for Elida High. I also observed that Mr. Boate was sponsoring RONNIE GREEN, RONNIE REYNOLDS, and FRED COMSTON in the interspace scooter races at Mars. On arrival at the space port I placed my luggage in the Hines' Rocket which was invented by a mem- ber of my class, Dr. NANCY HINES. After entering the rocket, I went forward to the pilots' compartment and to my surprise there sat SHIRLEY GRAPNER buckling on her oxygen mask. She told me that her co- pilot was NOAH SHERRICK,but that he would be a little late because he was milking his cosmic cows. After the blast-off a small rocket zoomed around us three times and finally crashed into the control tow- er. With my field glasses I noticed Miss LOIS MEIER extracting herself from the mangled controls. Screaming from the supply house came a Graham Truck, hotrodded by CAROL SMITH, who was on the fire rescue squad. In the seat next to me sat Dr. DAVID AUGSBIJRGER who had recently discovered the arsenic cure for cancer. Dr. Augsburger and I talked about the past for a while.but we were soon interrupted by a happy call for lunch from our lovely stewardess, SARAH SROUFE. After lunch we landed on Venus. The Doctor left me to go to see the famous architect, DAVID MORRISON. It seems he had forgotten to install stationary mouse traps in the latest hospital he designed. After thisl crawled into a very low-slung Atomic taxi which was driven by RONALD COOLIDGE. Ronald told me he was working for Miss DORIS GITHENS, owner of the Atomic Taxi Trust with headquarters in the fifth galaxy. I decided to drop in on Doris. While on the way to her office,l noticed a large sign advertising Dentist DANIEL KEITH CHENEY who guaranteed painless,.bicuspid extractions. l slipped up to his office and was greeted by his charming secretary-in-chief, PHYLLIS COOK. While waiting for Dan, Phyllis told me that ANN WIFORD had succeeded her father as mayor of Elida. Her chief of police was HELEN McGUE. I was finally admitted to Dan's office,where I found him prying in the cavernous mouth of KERMIT MAY with a crowbar. Be- tween shrieks, groans, and mouthfuls of cotton, he said that BUD LAING, DAN KLINE, and he were pros- pecting. Just then Mrs. Dan Cheney. alias CONNIE DETRICK, came bursting into the office. She had just returned from her hat designers,who were none other than DOTTIE WELKER and JOE LEISER. After saying goodbye to Dan and Connie, lwent to the boxing matches where RALPH "killer-tiny" REED, heavy- weight champion was defending his title against two trained gorillas. Sitting to my right was Thomas Oswald,who had brought his first grade class of 537 pupils to the arena to teach them the manly art of self defense. The next morning I blasted off for Jupiter. We were interrupted about midway to Ceres, our noon stop, by the Universal Space Patrol. Commander DICK KESLER inspected our luggage and dis- covered GENE MARCHAL stowed away in the middle nose of our ship. After the excitement we completed our flight to Ceres where, stopping at the HOLTZAPPLE-BURDEN Restaurant, we had lunch. Talking to Bob and Lynda, I learned that JANET HILLEARY and MARTHA KAY PARROTT were selling files and hacksaws to people trapped behind the Iron Curtain. On arrival at Jupiter I hailed the bicycle taxi and, much to my surprise, there was PHYLLIS WAGNER pedalingthe front half of the bicycle-built-for-two. She told me the best boarding house was directly across from PEGGY McCONNELL'S 'Apple Orchards Inn." I learned that this hotel was owned by JOANN GANNON who also owned the commercial lover's lane that was very popular because of Jupiter's nine moons. My vacation was nearly over, solreturned to earth by way of Saturn where l was again joined by Dr. Augsburger who had met JOYCE MIKESELL, maintenance lady for the rings of Saturn. On our final flight home we stopped off at the moon where we attended the wedding of KAREN JOHN and the man in the moon. We were served refreshments of green cheese and milk from the Milky Way. Back on earth we were met by KAY MILLER, reporter for the newspaper's 'Space News' column. After landing on Earth, we had no trouble locating the junior class which was Dy now in Alcatraz and Sing-Sing.
