On the eve of Wednesday, December 10, 1930, our new Fairmont High School
first threw open its doors to the public. Many who had been anxiously waiting to see
our new building were amply rewarded by its beauty. The halls were decorated with
palms, the offices and classrooms with beautiful flowers, and specimens of students'
class work transformed many empty wall spaces.
In the various departments, displays were given by the pupils themselves. The
English classes showed pictures of the countries whose authors they had been studying,
and a very interesting explanation was given with each. Various members of the typing
classes gave a rhythm drill which attracted much attention and gave the visitors an
idea of the importance of rhythm in typewriting. In the banking room the history of
the Fairmont commercial department was run off the rotospeed and handed to the visif
tors. Many interesting experiments were worked out in the Chemistry and Biology
departments. In other rooms, students pointed out the attractive features to the visitors.
That evening marked the laying of the first milestone, the dedication of our new

The Fairmont Parent Teachers' Association now in its third year of active service,
is under the direction of Mr. George L. Wheeler, presidentg Mrs. H. L. Altenburg,
vice president, Mrs. Adolph Blome, recording secretary, Mrs. L. L. Heaton, correspond'
ing secretaryg and Mrs, George L. Wheeler, treasurer. At the head of the various com'
mittees are: Mrs. C. W. Mapes, membership, Miss Elva Beck, publicity, Mrs. W. G.
Haines, art, Mrs. C, Bert Miller, program, Mrs. Clark Powell, hospitality, Mr. C. E.
Kolb, ways and means, and Mrs. Cora Uhrig, council delegate.
The annual football banquet, sponsored by the P. T. A., was served by the ladies
of the organization in the cafeteria of our new Fairmont High School. This banquet
was served, without thought of profit, at a very nominal price, and the cafeteria was
taxed to its capacity. Coach George Gauthier, of Ohio Wesleyan University, was the
principal speaker of the evening.
On january 12, 1931, the ways and means committee, under the capable leader'
ship of Mr. C. E. Kolb, joined with the Southern Hills P. T. A. in sponsoring a dance
and card party at the DaytonfBiltmore Hotel. This affair, well attended by parents,
faculty members, and students, was declared a hugs success by all present.
The P. T. A., at this writing, is contemplating the sponsoring of another minstrel
show, to be given by practically the same cast which produced the minstrel of last year,
and which we so well remember.
Recently the P. T. A. had the privilege of contributing to the student aid fund
of the Fairmont Alumni Association. This is a worthy cause and should receive the
support of all of us.
The work of our Parent Teachers' Association is one of prime importance, and
the membership and support of every loyal parent and teacher of Fairmont High
School are earnestly solicited.

Another step in the ladder of dramatic art at Fairmont was ascended this year
when the Junior Class presented "Pomander Walk" as their annual class play.
Coached by Miss Eleanor Kiernan and aided by the splendid scenery constructed
by the various industrial arts classes, the play was deemed a huge sucCess by all who
witnessed it. Suzanne Miller acted as assistant coach and Francis Giilin was in charge
of the dancing.
This comedy was given in three acts, with Pomander Walk, a rural district of
old time England, used as a background. A double lead was divided by Evelyn Schramn
and George Miranda.

Advice to Lower Classmen
Don't come to school till 8 137, don't hurry because the first period class instructor
likes to change the records after you've been marked absent.
Race through the halls, and be particular, always, to bump into the student
burdened with a stack of books for it's really a good laugh to see books go in one
direction and student in another.
Be sure to' park your chewing wax in the drinking fountain for it adds much to
the pleasure of the one drinking to gaze at it lying two inches from his nose.
Always let your books get overdue in the library for what could be sweeter than
to thereby get the librarian's records mixed.
Never stand at the end of the lunch line when your can shove someone else that
has a good place near the front. '
Never listen to the speaker during assembly for your next door neighbor always
has something more interesting to say.
Always track in as much mud as you can when coming to school in the morning
because the janitors have a circus cleaning it up, besides that's what they're paid for.
Whenever you come to a pretty picture in the study hall dictionary be sure to
add a few finishing touches to show to best advantage your technique.
Never carry a stack of books around with you, go to your locker during classes,
it's easier, and besides it gives Mr. Prass a chance to recite his memorized speech on
good hall ethics. l
Never hurry to class, Miss Wetzel likes to write out tardy slips and, too, what's
the use of hurrying if there's a chance of missing the next day's assignment.
Bring to school a tricycle or a kiddycar to ride 'cause this business of changing
classes each period certainly wears out the shoe leather.
If you want to get "A's" all the time, bring teacher some big, red, shiny, apples --
she likes the color-then too, she won't have to spend her money buying lunch.
A Always be sure to tear your love letters into tiny shreds because they do look so
nice scattered all over the library floor.

The Fairmont Student Council began its third year of participation in school
activities by choosing Garnett Stewart as president to guide the organization for the
year. Russell Bigler was chosen vice president and Ted Hersh, secretary.
On October 20, the members of the association took the oath of oflice and pledged
themselves to work for the best interest of the school without regard for personal glory.
Since the premier organization, Mr. Prass has led the council through the diflif
culties and problems that affronted these representatives of various classes and it was
upon his suggestion that the group strove this year to better the sportsmanship of
In the infancy of the council it was thought that it would eventually result in a
form of student government but this idea was not advanced this year when the student
court issue was vetoed. As students we are constantly aware of this organization. The
gymnasium has been decorated for games, there has been an information desk estabf
lished, members have taken charge of the pep assemblies, and a general feeling of good
will has been promoted. This group has gone far in establishing a closer contact between
the student body and the governing powers of the school.

That the spirit of change has filtered through the material side of our new Fair'
mont is evident in the changed style of issuing the "Fairmontonian." Last year the
Journalism Club had complete control of issuing the paper while this year a form of
cooperative publishing was introduced and has met with favorable success. All the
news items and content of the "Fairmontonian" are written as class assignments in the
Journalism class, the best in the class being taken for the paper while in the com'
mercial department the typing and 'stenciling necessary to the pr' ting is done by
outstanding typists and individuals of the class together with lvissjindrews and Mr.
Somers. As instructor of Journalism, Miss Beck selects the best articles and reserves
them for publishing in the "Fairmontonian" as well as the Dayton papers, for all
publicity of the schooliis handled by the class.
Due to increased activities made possible by the new building the "Fairmontonian"
has been issued only quarterly during the year, the papers in each case being larger
in content than last year.
That the "Fairmontonian" is a success is made evident by the check for twenty
dollars which was awarded as first prize for the "fall issue" entered in the nation'
wide contest for school papers held by the Rotospeed Company. The "Fairmonton'
ian" was selected as the best paper of its kind from representatives from all over
The work this year, cooperative publishing of the "Fairmontonian," was a new ex'
periment along the lines of issuing school papers and many outstanding pointers were
discovered, which, instilled in the paper next year will meet with great success.

A Code for iF3i1'1'I101'lt
The Faculty of Fairmont High School have, by extended round table discussions,
concerning the needs of the Educational Program of Fairmont, compiled an epitome
of the Aims of Fairmont Teachers. We are publishing this list for the information of
interested friends and parents.
We earnestly strive to equip our pupils to secure from the hours spent in the
schoolroom, a well-rounded character education, whereby they may develop a keener
sense of moral values, such as choosing right modes of behavior, respect for superiors
and property rights of others, as well as honesty and fair play in all their contacts.
We aim to make it possible for the students to obtain a command of the fund-
amental processes such as reading, writing, arithmetic, besides our regular academic
work, that will be put into practice almost constantly when they are through school.
We desire to teach necessary fundamentals, and not burden their minds with un'
We aim to keep the student in the best available health environment by furnish'
ing good equipment for physical activities, as well as regular health examinations.
We desire to improve the student's outlook on life-to make him more tolerant
of others in his relations in the home, school, and in his future relations with the
state and community.
We provide an opportunity for the pupil to explore the various hobbies or
fields through the subjects of the curriculum, thus discovering the direction in which
his natural aptitudes and abilities may find the fullest and most satisfactory expression.
We sponsor clubs with the aim of help-ing an individual to find himself--to realize
that he likes one certain avocation, and then we foster the student's enthusiasm and
desire to learn more about this definite line. As a result we desire that the pupil
explore his own capacities and aptitudes and make a survey of the world's work to
the end that he may select his vocation wisely.
We provide information as to the requirements and opportunities offered by the
various vocations. We aim to develop an appreciation of the significance of the vo'
cation to the community and a clear conception of right relations between the mem'
bers of the chosen vocation, such as employer and employee, producer and consumer.
Through the fulfillment of these aims We hope to make our contribution to
society by providing preparation for the most efficient performance of its varied tasks,
and by diminishing the number of misfits who fall by chance into occupations after
Above all we aim to equip the student to secure from his leisure, the recreation
of body, mind and spirit, and the enrichment and enlargement of his personality.
It is our aim through a combination of the foregoing, to so train a student that
he can leave school, take his place in society, feconomically speaking, and adjust
himself efficiently and wisely to the position he will occupy in life. By this adjustment
he will prove himself cooperative, useful and serviceable-truly a credit to any com'

Une of the long standing interests at Fairmont has been the county literary and
music contest. By the rules this year only the literary events were held in contest
form with the school as host providing suitable music. Events held this year were Bible
Reading, Dramatic Reading and Debate.
From volunteers in the different events, our representatives were selected in Jan'
uary, decisions being awarded to Clara Lewis in Bible Reading, to Suzanne Miller in
Dramatic Reading, and to Harlan johnson and Colleen Bushong in Debate.
On January 28, this team met representatives from jefferson in a two school pref
liminary to the county contest. First place decision was awarded to Suzanne Miller on
the readings "Boots" and "Rosa" and the negative side of the question, "Resolved that
the principles of the chain store are detrimental to the best interests of the American
public," upheld by Fairmont also earned the right to appear in the county contest.
At Trotwood, March 12, the county finals were held. Again Suzanne Miller ref
ceived first place in Dramatic Reading, and Colleen Bushong was awarded first place
as individual debater against much masculine competition.

the Senior Welfare Club were surely a success.
On the night January 15, four plays, 'fMagic Money," "Ethel's Queer Complex,"

parts and portrayed them extraordinarily well. We hope this will be an inspiration
to future Senior classes as a means of raising money.

As our auditorium was not finished at the beginning of the
year, Tuesday morning assemblies were not held until December.
Nevertheless, the ones since have been extremely interesting.
During the year we have listened to such speakers as Dr. Puffer,
of Boston, who talked on Vocational Guidance, Dr. Cook, our school
physician, who talked to us on Temperance. At another time, in
separate assemblies for the boys and girls, Mrs. Cartwright, of the
State Board of Health, talked to us on Boy and Girl Problems.
During the year our music has been given by the band, orchesf
tra, glee club, and diiferent soloists from the glee club, and outside
entertainment such as the Kentucky Jubilee Singers.

P ep Assemblies
This year our pep assemblies have been enjoyed by all of the student body.
Our comedians, "Mack," "Herb," and "Red" have put on many very funny and
exciting acts, which certainly gave the students plenty of pep and vigor.
Mr. McClelland came out before the Oakwood game and led us in peppy songs.
There have been interesting talks by Mr. Warner, Miss Wahl, Mr. Barnes and
Mr. Somers before our football and basketball games.
"Stub" Bolander, Russell Beckner and other members of the alumni and Mr.
Phillips of the Board of Education have also been here and talked to us about the
It always gave us great pleasure to hear the members of the basketball and footf
ball squads tell us about the tactics used in playing the games.
The Suburban League presented the "boys" with a trophy at the end of the
football season, which created much excitement in the assembly.
Our successful basketball season and splendid tournament showing also caused
another enthusiastic assembly.
Mr. Rimanoczy and the band have also played an important part in the assemf
blies by leading our songs for us. Then too, our cheer leaders, Red Stewart and David
Routsong, have always made it exciting for us by leading us in both old and new yells.
The assemblies held were in charge of Student Council members and will al'
ways be one of the bright memories of the school year.
A great deal of our well being is due to the constant care of Mr. M. Snider, our
building superintendent, assisted by Mr. Carson Fuls. We appreciate their interest and
cooperation in all our undertakings.
If an army is only efficient to the degree that it is well fed, then our cafeteria
must be responsible in large degree for our achievements. Through very trying conf
ditions when our building was not finished to our present well equipped status, we
have been faithfully served by Mrs. E. Means, Mrs. H. Reedy, and Mrs. R. Man'
chester under the direction of Miss Satchell.

Home Room Organization
Fairmont has adopted the idea of an extra period each Monday
to be developed into a program for the benefit of the students. This
idea has become very popular and is educational as well as enter'
taining. Students take a real interest in the programs and really
look forwardto them. Different classes have taken different topics
to work on. For instance, the Senior class is using "Vocational Guid'
ance" as its main theme. Each week, Miss Balzhiser appoints pupils
to take part in the discussion and gives them something deinite to
work on. They have also had Spelling Marathons and Round Table
Discussions which are of a great benefit to the students.
In Miss I'Iartsock's room, No. 207, there is a president who
was appointed by the students to take care of the program. Charles
Hedges filled this position the first semester and Betty Weinman,
the second. The two topics they have developed are "Points of Inf
terest in 0hio" and "First Aid."
Miss Kiernan has, in her room, 107, two committees that plan
the cntertainment for this period. Every other week they have prof
grams of various sorts, while the remaining weeks are spent in con'
ducting contests. E
In room 103, all programs are also planned and conducted by
the students and sponsored by Miss Andrews. They have had im'
promptu talks, current events, talks on basketball, movies, news'
reels of interest and editorials. Various students have also furnished
Variety has been the key note of all programs conducted in
Home Room 102, sponsored by Mr. Somers. The Home room off
ficers for the first semester were Jack McNab, President, and Doro'
thy Boyles, SecretaryfTreasurer. For the second semester they are
Irwin Altenburg, President and Mary Powell, SecretaryfTreasurer.
Musical selections, talks, discussions, readings, jokes and short
story telling have been features in the activities of these periods.

Great strides were taken during the past year to enlarge and in various ways to
improve the Fairmont HI Y Club. A campaign was launched to enlarge the member'
ship. This met with success as a number of sophomore, junior and senior boys were
inducted into our organization. Our capable president, Fred Blocher, appointed var'
ious committees which have functioned in most faithful style to make our programs
A series of topics have been taken up at our weekly discussions. Among these
were vocations, health, hobbies and older boys' problems. While discussing vocations
we visited several local industries to see the type of work done and factory conditions.
Much of our progress is no doubt due to the splendid cooperation rendered us
by Mr. Crouser, our adviser, and Mr. Rhodes, the County HI Y Secretary.
We are looking forward to next year when we expect our organization to blosf
som forth and lead all other organizations in the matter of social activities.

Fairmont's new commercial teacher, Miss Andrews, organized a commercial club
for Junior and Senior girls. Ruth Marquis, president, Thelma Smith, treasurer, and
Blanche Tangeman as secretary were the ofhcers chosen.
Our meetings are very informal and we talk on different subjects such as def
sirable colleges for the members when they graduate. Every two weeks Miss Andrews
dictates to us and we transcribe our notes on the typewriter. All the girls have taken
either shorthand or typing and several have taken both.
Miss Andrews gave a party for the club, and Mary Margaret Eastham and Ruth
Marquis entertained the club at their homes.
Several trips were planned to visit different business establishments in the city. We
visited Miami'-Iacobs Business College and all benefited by the trip.
Our aim is to gain a broader and fuller outlook on stenographic work, to study the
requirements for a good stenographerg then strive to attain them-in brief to add
dignity to the commercial career. -Poinsettia Carter

Under the leadership of Miss Satcliell, the Sunshine Club has had a successful
year at Fairmont.
Early in the semester the members visited the Childrens Home and decided to
sew for the girls during part of the club period.
During Halloween time a masquerade party was held at the home of Dorothy
Schraffenberger. All members were present.
A Washington's Birthday party was given at the home of Ruth and Doris Melke.
Everyone enjoyed the evening.

This is the first year an Archery Club has been attempted at Fairmont. As each
member is making his own equipment, the club time so ,far has been mainly spent in
making bows and arrows. The bows are made of lemon wood and hickory staves, the
arrows from white birch dowels.
The club has received helpful ideas and suggestions from visits to the Dayton
Archery Club. Some of our boys, by being members of the Y. M. C. A., are privilegf
ed to use the targets of the "Archery Clubi' at the HY."
The next project of the club is the making of an outside target so that target
practice may begin as soon as the weather permits. Later in the year the club will have
a tournament to determine the best archer.
The olhcers of the club are: Marion Mendenhall, presidentg Warren Darst, vice'
presidentg Robert Shroder, secretary, Edward Porter, reporterg and Mr. Hall, faculty
adviser. -Edward Porter

After the election things ran smoothly and the club decided that they would
study all parts of an airplane, build scale and flying models and in short, learn every'
thing about an airplane that such an organization could.
Contests were started as soon as it was possible and have been continuing at
regular intervals. Prizes are given at each contest. In this way some of the members
are able to have airplanes with only a slight cost to them. During the spring there will
be glider contests which should prove much more interesting than the indoor contests.
The club membership has been increasing steadily which indicates itspopularity.
We hope it will continue to carry on and become one of the important and permanent
clubs of Fairmont.

Ramsey as sponsors. These lads have carried on nobly in their efforts to establish their
club as one of the best at Fairmont.
Although the club meets but every other week, it has been quite active. It has
drawn up and adopted a constitution. Long will be remembered the good time when
the charter members initiated the new members who earned their letter in football.
Another project has been the financing the taking of pictures of each game by
Mr. Somers. These pictures have been numbered, identified and mounted in album form
as a permanent record of the football season.
Plans are being made for the "Varsity F" Club and the Girls' Athletic Club to
combine their efforts and brains to stage an athletic carnival May lst. -Fred Blocker

The Girl's Athletic Club is a new organization in the Department of Physical Educa'
tion. Thirty girls responded to the first call for members and the work was started in the hope
of 'establishing a permanent organization to interest girls of Fairmont in athletics as a hohhv.
The girls having expressed an interest in swimming when the club was organized, made arrange'
ments for weekly dips at the Y. W. C. A. Later, stunts and apparatus work were taken -ip.
Special requirements were made for each month's work and colors awarded to the girls who
finished these requirements. After the apparatus and stunt work were completed, games were
the next to be undertaken.
The girls, as members. have taken a decided interest in the activities of the organization.
As it is unlike any of the gymnasium classes. the enthusiasm of the memhers is easily sustained
The executive committee has prepared all pograms and activities which have taken place.

When the Senior Welfare Club was organized under the direction and manage'
ment of Miss Balzhiser, it had two goals in mind. The first one was realized when
the club presented the class with one hundred and twenty dollars for the annual.
This sum was obtained when the club, with the aid of other seniors, successfully
presented "Ethel's Queer Complex," "The Unexpected Guest," "Kidnapping Betty,"
"A Pair of Simpsf' with various dramatiC and musical numbers.
The second goal, that of taking the initiative step in a scholarship fund to assist
seniors in going to college, had to be abandoned because of other activities.
The second semesterthe club has been interested in various programs, in assisting
with the annual and the senior play. The oilicers for the year are:

The Glee Club has a very prominent place in Fairmont activities. From time to
time it has performed for assemblies, P. T. A. meetings, and similar gatherings.
The chorus also appeared at the District Music Festival held in the Fairmont
Auditorium, April 2. The schools taking part were Fairmont, Centerville and West
Carrollton. The music programs this year were not competitive within the county
groups and were a pleasing innovation.
The program of the Fairmont chorus was: "Sing Me to Sleep," by Greene, "If
With All Your Hearts," by Mendeloda, "T he Italian Street Song," by Victor Herbert,
and "Italian Salad," by Greene.

Une of the most unusual associations in the student cluhs this year is the newly
organized Vega Omicron Kappa, a dramatic honorary society composed of students
who have appeared in one or more dramatic productions at Fairmont.
At the first meeting of the group, the memhers chose the following officers to
guide the destiny of the cluh for the year: president, Herhert Serverg vice president,
Wchster Ivfanchesterg secretary and treasurer, Clara Lewis.
The name of this organization was chosen after much controversy and the
memhers thought it quite appropriate hccause Vega is recognized as the hrightest star
in the constellation Lyra. Omicron and Kappa are the Greek letters for U. K.
The project for the year was to present one finished production in assemhly.
Miss Kiernan was faculty adviser and her efforts in directing the play produced were

The organization of the Fairmont Camera Club had its inception when the architects
included a darkfroom as a part of our present hgh school building.
The club itself is not a large one and the members have been devoting their hrst efforts to
the elements of photographic and dark room technique.
The objectives of the club have been attained by devoting one club period to picture'
taking, the next one to development of negatives, the following meeting to development of
prints and the last period in the cycle to criticism, and discussion.
Members of the club have made some very satisfactory prints and have also developed
quite a number of films for other Fairmont pupils.
The coming of spring will improve the quality of the club's work and some very nice
enlargements are hoped to he obtained from some of the better negatives. Members of the club
have the use of cameras ranging from ordinfary Brownies to the school's Graflex,
Much of the dark room equipment was inade by the boys, but they also have the use of an
electric printer, three safe lights, developing tank, a complete set of trays and a complete line
Officers of the club are Robert Wheeler, presidentg Thomas Fellows, secretary: and Howard

For the second successive year, Coach Pop Warner amalgamated a football eleven
that went through the season undefeated, besides, winning the coveted Dayton
Suburban and 'iLittle Three" for the second straight year. Although lacking the beef
that the 1930 squad possessed, this season's combination, which ran the winning streak
to 19 straight, was considered by many on a par in greatness with last year's team,
which was lauded as the greatest in Fairmont's grid history..
The season started with about fifty candidates answering the first call of Coach
Warner and his assistant, William Ramsey. This squad, which included 10 lettermen,
was the largest ever to turn out for the gridiron sport. Such brilliant pigfskin huskies
as Captain Russ Bigler, Russell Creager, and Ray Hoefling in the hackfield and linemen
Ed Kinzig, Harry Peoples and Roy Blumer were included in this turn out.

In the opening encounter, Coach Warner's cohorts were scheduled to face a tough foe
in Bradford. However, after the dust of the battle had cleared off the grid, Fairmont was on
the long end of the count, after an uphill struggle. The grid men from the town of many
railroads gave the Dragons one of their hardest tilts of the season.
Germantown invaded the Dorothy Lane field the next week to help the Big Purple
inaugurate their surburban league pennant chise. The Fairmontonians trounced Ben Bishop's
eleven 26 to 0. Three other league conflicts with Lebanon, Franklin and West Carrollton,
were played in order named and each one re:eived the bitter taste of defeat. Franklin was
probably given the wortt dose of the medicine, when the Big Purple ran up a 71 to 6
score against the Kysermen.
Th: next fracas saw the Dragons trek to Oxford McGulfey for their longest road trip of
the season. The long jaunt downstate seemed to effect the Fairmontonians' play somewhat
for after lead'ng at the half way mark by a sl'm 6 to 0 margin, the Big Purple went on a
scoring rampage the second hall and ht the highways back home with a 33 to O v'ctory.
In the Fairview contest the followfng week, the undefeated Dragons almost met their
Waterloo. The Bulldogs earlier in the season were defeated by Oakwood by a score that
surpassed the half century mark and were con:eded by everyone, except Pop Warner and his
squad. to have little chance wiih the Fairmont eleven. As was expected by the Warner-
ites, the Billdogs were out with that do or die spirit in this contest and the Fairmontonlans
were held to a 12 to 12 tie, in the hardest fo :ght and most thrilling contest played on the
Fairmont grfdiron during! the season. '
Troy, always a tough gridiron foe for Fair.nont was engaged on the Trojan's Held and
gave the Dragons a stiff battle before going down to defeat, 20 to 6.
And now for the game of the season. The struggle that was played on Thanksgiving
day, when the old thermometer was sticking around the zero mark and th-e people on both
sides were cheering for their respective teams, despite the fact that they were neary frozen.
Don't you remember that contest where McClelland, Atkins and Blocher fought and held
as they never did before. Last but not least, remember that sturdy battle the whole Dragon
team put up against the Lumberjackets that helped Captain Russ Bigler put across the one and
only score of the contest.
With this year's graduating class goes the following gridiron players of Fairmont's 1930
team, Captain Russ Bigler, Russell Creager, Ray Hoefling, Red Stewart, and Kenny Peterson-H
a ball carrying crew that will be hard to replace, from the line, Roy Blumer, Fred Blocher,
Mac McClelland, Bob McNab, Bill Atkins and Harry Peoplesg a hard blocking and clean
tackling forward wall that stopped opponents that outweighed them 10 to 20 pounds per man.
These men also received letters and gcld medals for playing in the majority of the quarters.
Others to receive letters and medals were Ed. Kinzig, Jim Bolander, Jay Houser and
Carl Creager, while those who received letters and not medals because they lacked the necessary
quarters were, Al. Austin, Doc Altenburg and George Riggs, All these last named lettermen
will be back next year.-
Not a little credit should go to the Reserve squad and its Coach Bill Ramsey for this
year's successful season, since it was this combination who allowed the first team to run
rough shod over them in preparation for the varsity games. The Reserve squad played games
with Junior Highs of Dayton and Oakwood and had a fair record for youngsters in the game.
On this year's Reserve squad were quite a few Freshmen that will furnish the Big Purple
with some high class material in future years.
Once more the name of Bolander broke into leadership in sports at the Dragon school,
when Jim Bolander nosed out Ed. Kinzig infghe election for 1931 captain, at the annual foot'
ball banquet. jim is the last of the Bolanders in school and the Hfth of the family to lead an
athletic team at Fairmont. We, the graduating class, wish you much success, "Moon."

Having a nucleus of eight lettermen from last year's squad, Coach Pop Wariufzr
rounded out a court contingent that won 12 out of its 17 regular scheduled games.
At the close of the season the Fairmontonians found themselves in a tie with the
Fairview Bulldogs for first place in the Dayton Surhurhan court race and in a three
way tie for thc "Little Three" championship.
The inaugural conflict with Springfield marked the dedication of Fairmont's new
gym and was played to a capacity crowd. The Fairmont quintet displayed a mediocre
hrand of hall against the Reaper City lads and went down to defeat 29 to 9. Other
features of the evening were some hrilliant apparatus work by Gamma Phi gymnastic
fraternity of Ohio Wesleyaii University and a play hy play account of the court conf
test broadcast with Fred Bloeher at the microphone.

However, the showing against Springfield was soon forgotten by the Dragon
court followers, for the Fairmontonians exhibited some neat basketball playing in
winning their next six frays. This winning streak was short lived for the Big Purple,
however, when Cedarville invaded the Dragon gym for the first time and walked off
the hardwood with a victory. Earlier in the season, Bexley, of Columbus, was engaged
in a court tilt that marked the first athletic relationship between Bexley and Fairmont.
Probably the greatest achievement ever attained by a Fairmont court team during the
regular season came the week the Dragons battled three foes in two days and were the winners
of all three. On Friday night the Dragons met Lebanon in a suburban league game to Write up
a score of 29f21. Then their win over Steele on the following afternoon at the Coliseum was
alone a day's accomplishment. yet the Dragons were not satisfied until they settled the Blue
Birds that evening at Brookville. The game with Steele marked the first time the two schools
have met since 1925 and the greatest victory during the 19304931 court campaign.
Fairmont's gym was again filled to capacity the night the Big Purple battled the West
Carrollton Pirates and subdued the attack of the Paper City lads to win 2Of17 in a thrilling and
hard fought contest.
The Dragons' longest losing streak of the year followed the Carrollton tussle when the Big
Purple lost to Centerville and Fairview. Next came our close and traditional rival, Oakwood.
The conflict itself was the fastest of the year with both trams displaying a weak defense and a
strong offense for the first half. However, the defenses tightened in the second half and neither
collected over ten points in the last sixteen minutes of play. The lead changed hands several
times and the score was a nip and tuck affair with the Big Purple winning with a 31430 score.
The Dragons brought the'r rrnron to a close with a defeat bv Horace English's Bradford
quintet and a victory over Dixie. The Dixie game was an extra, scheduled to keep the Warner
courtmen in trim for the tournament,
The first ten of the Dragons was much in doubt throughout the season. Several times during
the campaign courtmen from the reserve squad were moved up to the first ten in favor of a lad
alreadv on the varsity.
The Reserves under the tutelage of Coach Ramsey won 7 conflicts and lost 4, This is one
of the most impressive records ever hung up by a Big Purple Reserve team. The whole
Reserve squad shows much promise with the outstanding recruits being Altenburg, Creager,
Grissom, Kinzig and Norris.

For the first time in the history of the school, Fairmont was hailed as a Class A
school because they were over the Class "B" limit of 150 boys by the slim total of four.
For this reason Pop Warner's cohorts were not allowed to enter the annual Montgomery
hardwood tourney but were classihed in the Southwestern Sectional, Class A. Since
most schools in this tournament choose their teams from a much larger enrollment many
sport followers gave Fairmont a slim chance of going anywhere in the tournament.
However, Fairmont inaugurated Class "A" play in the tourney with a sensational
26f23 victory over Bellefontaine, in one of the fastest tilts of the series. Bellefontaine
boasted of having a giant six foot nine inch pivot man, whose care was assigned to
Harry Peoples, who did a neat job. In fact, Harry besides scoring points, displayed
the best basketball he ever showed while wearing a Dragon uniform.
By virtue of their victory over Bellefontaine, Fairmont's next tournament foe was
Chaminade, city champions and favorites to walk away with the Dragons. To the surf
prise of many of our city friends, this game turned out to be the fastest and most thrill-
ing game of the tourney with the Eagles winning out 21 to 17 after the Dragons had
held them tied for three quarters. Chaminade's win may be credited to some sensational
and freak shots on the part of Off and Zwisler, the Eagles' scintillating aces. The en'
tire Dragon team played their best game of season.
Fairmont's tournament fight marked the last game for 6 players-Hoefling, the
Dragons high scorer of the year, and Bigler, his running mate will be lost and hard to
replace, Peterson, who had an off and on season will be lost at center, while three
guards, Peoples, Blumer and Creager have played their last game on a Dragon team.
The honor of playing the most steady ball of the year goes to Roy Blumer, with
Creager and Peoples coming in for honors on feature guarding. ,
To return from the first ten are Webb Manchester, Moon Bolender, Bill Ryne and
Ed Barney. These lads saw action this year and the court wares they displayed indicate
a promising Dragon combination for the future.
Since Fairmont uses the policy of electing a captain before each encounter, no
regular captain guided the basketball quintet through the entire season. At a meeting
just before the tournament, Ray Hoefling and Russ Creager were elected as honorary
captains for the season. Ray made use of his captain abilities in the Bellefontaine conf
flict while Russ used his to no mean ability in the Chaminade combat. .

The girls' season, although not quite as successful as years previous to this, was
enjoyed by all, under the supervision of Christena Wahl, to whom we give our credit
for the victories of the season.
With the dropping of track this year, Coach Warner will have time for spring
training for gridiron players for next year's football team. This spring practice will
last about six weeks and will be used mainly for developing the inexperienced players
that confront Coach Warner. For this reason the menu offered consists mostly of
fundamentals necessary in the game, time will be given also to formations, blackboard
talks on methods, different types of offense and defense, and strategy and generalship.
The majority of practices held during the six weeks period will be just light work
outs with the last week seeing some light scrimmages that will end with a game between
the seniors and the oval toters of next year.
The intramural sports program of Fairmont for the basketball season was slightly
changed this year. Each home room had a team and these teams met each other in
tournament style. At the end of the series Room 201, consisting of Senior members,
was hailed as the ultimate winner.
From these home room teams, the class teams were picked and again the conflicts
were run off tournament style. The two strongest teams, the Juniors and Seniors, were
placed in different brackets for the draw and they both won their first tilts in easy
fashion. With these two winners meeting in the finals the Juniors started to play rings
around the Seniors, but the Seniors came out of their lethargy and delivered a 2542
defeat to their underclassmen.
The fact that the Seniors won the basketball championship does not mean that
they will receive the silver loving cup for the interfclass track and indoor baseball series
still remain to be run off.
The intramural program is being handled by Coach Warner and he should be
commended for employing such fmediocrej officials as Webb Manchester, Ray Hoefling
and Russ Bigler, three arbitrators who received many a jeer and boo for their sensation'

N' Q till
W-if e ' ' Q 1,
Golf at Fairmont last year ended up with a fair season. Although the golfers of
the Big Purple lost more matches than they won, they did chalk up a few victories on
the right side of the ledger, while some of their defeats were by very slim margins.
Mr. Somers had charge of the golf team last year, and although his earnest and
timely efforts were not rewarded with victory, he comes in for not a little credit in
improving the form of the Fairmontonians.
The golf team composed Peterson, Kolb, Mendenhall, Kidder and Robert Boyles.
The Tennis season of Fairmont last year was not as successful as it might have
been in the matter of victories and defeats. However, the fact that the racketeweilders
did not obtain so many victories does not mean that the Big Purple racket men did
not improve their play.
Under the tutelage of Coach Kendall Neher, Fairmont's tennis sponsor, Webb
Manchester, Fred Blocher, Dave Routsong, Palmer Boyles and Eldon Basinger started
as fair racket wielders, but at the end of the season Coach Neher had them playing
like impending champions.
Baseball will again be ushered in as a major sport for the first time since 1925.
This sport will take the place of track and will be under the direction of Coach Bill
Ramsey, who coached the pill tossers back in the good old days. Prospects for a team
look bright despite the fact that the Dragons have as yet no practice field.
Thus far a schedule of nine games has been arranged. Fairmont will open up
athletic relationships with Spring Valley and Eaton, will face their traditional rival
Oakwood twice as well as Kiser who always turns out good baseball nines. Several other
games are in the process of being scheduled and in all possibility the team will be en'
tered in the Southwestern District Baseball Tournament.
