Board of Education
LEFT T0 RIGHT: Mr. McFarland, Mr. Krebs, Mr. Streithorst, Mr. Ernst, Mr. Moyer.
Our school board for the year of 1954 consisted of Mr. G. F. MacFarland, Mr.
C. A. Moyer, Mr. G. L. Ernst, Mr. R. M. Krebs, Mr. C. F. Nickels, and Mr.
W, E. Eickman, less one prominent member, Mr. G. H. Streithorst. Such prob-
lems as keeping pace with the rapidly expanding community of Kettering
and the great mass volume of details required for the operation of a school
system of five elementary schools, soon to number seven, a huge junior high,
and a senior high school, are what the board has to cope with daily.
Paul J. Kennett and Son
Princgbcll mm' Counselors
Mr. Flatter and Mrs. Githens are Fairrnont's two ad-
vising counselors. Their job plays a big role in the
lives of the students, as it is important to have under-
standing as well as learning. They give advice on
subjects to be taken the next year, information and
advice pertaining to college or a job, advice on per-
sonal problems and extra-curricular activities. They
work hard to make the student's life at Fairmont en-
joyable ancl worthwhile, with the idea of preparing
the student for the future.
Mrs. Githens, Girls' Counselor, in the one year she has
been here, has come to be known by the students as
an able and understanding counselor. Her other duties
include teaching English and girls' personality devel-
Mr. Flatter carries a lot of responsibility being Assist-
ant Principal and Boys' Counselor. He also teaches a
bovs' personality development class, issues absentee
and tardy blanks. But he is never too busy to see
The past two years Mr. Somers has been Fairmont's
principal. He has shown a likeable interest in the stu-
dents, by giving support and willing friendliness.
Mr. Somers has a lot to do during the school year, as
he is in charge of the student council, directs school
activities, and gives quite a bit of his attention to the
members of the faculty as the head of the teachers'
meetings. Our daily activities are given to us over
the public address system by Mr. Somers each morn-
ing. These are some of his duties, but there are
Mr. Somers sets a good example for the student body,
as well as giving guidance. He stands for Fairmont's
ideals and upholds our scholastic standards.
Besides Mr. Somers' Fairmont activities, he also finds
time for fishing as an enjoyment.

school spirit that is held in the halls of Fair-
mont High 'cause the proud FHS student and
his school spirit are inseparable.
The Clam' of 1954
SENIOR OFFICERS Philip Heeter Don Bolinger, Nancy Kuhbander, Carole Howard, Shirley Weiser.
Three years ago in 1951, the class of '54 entered Fairmont High as an
energetic, prospective class. Since then, they have proved themselves to
be a memorable group of ambitious boys and girls. Although it was
rather hard at times to co-operate with the situations which formed
around this inexperienced class, they never gave up as a team to accom-
plish the goal which Fairmont classes have always lived up to. Their
first chance came to display their ambitions with the sophomore as-
sembly. "Club Tropicana" was truly enjoyed by students as the sopho-
mores worked hard to make this dance a success.
As they began their junior year, responsibilities were gradually and
continually growing. In addition to their wonderful dance, "The Crystal
Ball", was the junior play, "Father of the Bride". This play, a humorous
comedy, helped finance the junior-Senior Banquet which was held the
last of May. The climax of the year was the junior-Senior Prom. It
was worth the effort displayed by everyone.
And so now the final year has come to a close. The activities of this
class will long be remembered. Among these activities was their humor-
ous comedy, "Life With Mother". The last event of our seniors ended
with the dance, "The Twilight Twirl". These three years at Fairmont
will never be forgotten. Champ leaves one special message to this senior
class, "Good luck and farewell class of '5-4".

The funior Clow
The juniors began their year with huge success when they presented
their class assembly, "American In Algiers", held in the auditorium,
on January 15, l954, under the direction of Miss Warren. Their second
event was their annual dance. It was held in the music room, and the
very appropriate theme was the "Sweetheart Swing." Bob Douglas and
Sue Vorndran with Norman Roush and Pat jollay reigned over the
dance. The next great event of the juniors was their junior play, "Best
Foot Forward", under the direction of Miss Funck. It was held in the
auditorium on March 26 and 27. The play, a wonderful success, was very
entertaining. The leading roles were played by jim Mulvaney and Peggy
Smales. For the last two events of the year, the juniors were hosts to
the seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet, held on May 15, and the
Prom, held on May 28.
Congratulations to the juniors for a successful year, and lots of luck
to them as next year's seniors.

he folbloomore Clam
On September 5, 1953, Fairmont High School inherited the largest
class in her entire history. The sophomores showed remarkable talent
and expressed extreme loyalty to the school at the games and all the
events in which they took part. The first event of the sophomores was
their assembly, which is always one of the most entertaining of events
at Fairmont. Their theme was "Dragnet'i, in which the sophomores
were looking for a plot for the juniors. Brainard Platt played the part
of Jack Webb. The sophomore assembly was quite thrilling and will
surely be remembered. The next great sophomore event was their an-
nual dance. The theme was "Shamrock Swirl". By the title of the dance
you can see it was quite original. The date was March 13, and the dec-
orations were very colorful and gay. Last but not least of their events
was their picnic, which ended a year of complete satisfaction for the
Congratulations to the sophomore class and to next year's juniors.

Students at Fairmont High School have
worked hard but also have had many happy
times in their classes. The bugs in biology,
the noise in the library, the mistakes in
typing all make up our class experiences. Mr, Hall shows how

Members are elected by their classes and represent the
students in bringing about a closer relationship between
the faculty and the student body.
The council participated in many activities during the
year. One of the main activities was the sponsoring of
the homecoming ceremony and dance at the Fairmont-
flreenville football game. The council also chose a li-
brary, a reception, and an assembly committee from
the student body to work with the faculty, decorated a
Christmas tree for the school cafeteria, cleaned the trophy
cases, and adopted a family at Christmas time. Before
the Miamisburg football game a bonfire and caravan
were organized by the council. The council also helped
to influence the lengthening of the lunch period.

livery day during the school year, between eleven
forty-five and one o'clock, the cafeteria is the busiest
place at Fairmont. Between these hours, hundreds of
hungry students and faculty members descend upon it
to be fed by the hard-working cooks. But the cafeteria
is used for many other functions besides eating. lt is
used for such things as giving tests, holding assembly
tryouts and practices, and regularly as a study hall.

Each year at Fairmont, as the enrollment increased, more and more clubs were organized. The number of clubs finally
became so large that it was necessary to provide some time other than after school or after supper for some of them to
meet. Thus was established the so called "club period." This period occurs once a month on school time and has be-
come a regular part of Fairmont life.
Clubs which meet during the club period are of the character building type. The Allied Youth group has in three
short years become one of the largest clubs in the school. This organization was very fortunate in having Mr. Wag-
ner and Mr. Fouts as advisers.
Other clubs which meet during club period are the Y-Teen and Hi-Y organizations. The Senior Y-Teens had as their
adviser Miss Wilson, the junior Y-Teens, Miss Anderson, and the Sophomore Y-Teens, Miss Kelley. The Y-Teen
groups were busy with many activities this year, such as sponsoring a dance and holding their annual potato chip sale.
The three Hi-Y clubs were very active this year. Alpha Hi-Y once again published the student directory under the di-
rection of its adviser, Mr. Allen. One of Beta's main projects for the year was the sponsoring of a dance. Beta's advisor
was Mr. jundanian. The Gamma Hi-Y, sponsored by Mr. Tuttle, ushered at the junior Career Day, among other
Students who are taking or have taken a foreign language are eligible to join one of the three language clubs. This
year the Spanish Club was sponsored by Miss Davis, the French Club by Miss Warren, and the Latin Club by Miss
Heitzman. The three clubs together held a Mardi Gras toward the end of the year.
The Future Teachers Club, sponsored by Miss Warren, was organized at Fairmont for those students who plan to
enter the field of education. The club had several interesting guest speakers during the year. Senior members held
their annual visitation day, when they visited different schools and helped teach, Girls who are interested in home-
making may join Fairmont's Future Homemakers Club. Sponsored by Miss Vogelsang, this group was very active
Students interested in world affairs may join Fairmont's rather new but very large junior-Council on World Affairs.
This club, whose adviser was Mrs. Benedict, had a busy and successful year. The club had several guest speakers, par-
ticipated in panel discussions and radio programs, and sponsored the United Nations trip.
The junior Red Cross once again filled a chest to send to a school overseas and also decorated Christmas trees at the
Veteran's Hospital. Adviser for the year was Miss Urick.
This was the second year for Fairmont's new Science Club, sponsored by Mr. Nolan. The club worked on projects and
heard various guest speakers. A new club formed just this year was the Photography Club. Sponsored by Mr. Graham,
it has become a very active organization.

Prof., is the director of the music depart-
ment. During school hours he directs the
chorus and band. His classes never fail to
have just about as much humor as music
and hard work. During the fourth period
he directs the chorus, a group of students
who demand that he be on his toes always.
But the fourth period chorus is not all.
He also has the sixth period band class
which keeps him hopping. No matter how
you look at it, Prof. is, we think, the
greatest, Through his outstanding person-
ality, he can take students full of spirit, if
talented or not, and direct them through
such things as "Kiss Me Kate," and l
ratings in band contests.

Mr. Vincent Arnold
Athletic Director and Council
The "man behind the scenes" is a fitting title for Mr. Vincent Arnold,
athletic director of Fairmont High School. Not only does Mr. Arnold
arrange contests with other schools, but he plans and often officiates in-
tramural contests so that our students benefit from them. During his
many years of coaching and then as athletic director, Mr, Arnold
has never lost contact with the players. Many times during the year we
have seen Mr. Arnold come into the locket room to give a word of
encouragement or a pat on the back. To you, Mr. Arnold, we say
"thanks" for a job well done.

1955 was a year of setting records for the Football
Dragons. The Fairmont men set a modern school rec-
ord by allowing a meager 52 points scored by the
opposition. Also, it was the first time any school has
won three straight championships in the rugged
M. V. l.. league.
Fairmont versus Fairview-fThe Dragons started out
their season by beating Fairview in a driving rain.
The score was Fairmont 26, Fairview 6.
Fairmont versus Middletown--The team played one
of the finest games of the season against Middletown,
scoring the final touchdown with only seconds to play.
Though the Dragons were outscored, they were not
outfought. Fairmont I3 and Middletown I4.
Fairmont versus Troy-The Trojans, having an off
'ear fave Fairmont little on osition. Fairmont 45,
Fairmont versus Sidney-Homecoming for F. H. S.
A great victory and all of the half-time festivities
made it a very successful night for the Fairmont
Dragons. The final score was Fairmont 40, Sidney 6.
Fairmont versus Xenia--This big game for the Buc-
caneers caused the Xenia players to rise to their
highest point of the season. But, as always, hard and
alert football enabled the Dragons to drop Xenia from
the unbeaten ranks, and win one more M. V. l.. game.
Fairmont 3l, Xenia 7.
Fairmont versus Greenville-The Dragons, expecting
a big contest, got just that. But that one thing that
reigns here at Fairmont, NDFSIR was not present
at Greenville. The score was Fairmont 27, Green-
Fairmont versus Lima Central-Playing an opponent
from the Greater Ohio League, the Dragons once
more came through with a tremendous victory. The
players voted this game the "best game of the year".
Fairmont 12, Lima Central 7.
Fairmont versus Piqua-The Dragons, after playing
a slow first half, came back strong during the second
half to beat the Indians. Fairmont 25, Piqua 6.
Fairmont versus Miamisburg-After a stuning defeat
from the Vikes in 1952, the team set out for revenge.
Fairmont was not to be denied two years in a row.
Eleven seniors put on the purple and white jerseys
for the last time to leave in a blaze of glory. Fairmont
26, Miamisburg 0.

The basketball team, under the new coaching regime of
Mr. Leland Norris, ended their season with an eight and
nine record. This was just short of the five hundred
mark. For Fairmont followers there were many exciting
moments throughout the season. We shall never forget
the fine games with Monroe, Greenville, Piqua, and the
immortal Xenia Central contest. The courtmen were led
by junior Tony Welde, who scored three fast baskets in
the closing moments of the game, to give the Dragons a
fifty-two, forty-six win.
Although the team was below the five hundred mark,
they played very impressive basketball to place third in
the Miami Valley League. Individual honors came to
several members of this year's squad. Ron Andrews was
named as a first team choice for the All Miami Valley
Only one new coach was added to the staff at Fairmont
during the 1953-54 year. This addition was our new
basketball coach, Mr. Leland Norris. Coach Norris was
the second returning alumnus on the coaching staff.
Being handicapped by the lack of veteran experience, the
coaching staff implied a rebuilding program from the
offset of the season.
Mr. Wagner, in his second year of coaching reserve bas-
l:etball, led the team to a 14 and 1 record. Every year
the coach of the reserve team is faced with one of the
toughest jobs of the coaching staff. The future of Fair-
mont basketball lies in his hands. Under Mr. Wagner's
careful direction, the reserves gave us a picture of fine
basketball in the future years of Fairmont.
League team, picked annually by the sports writers of this
area. At the end of the campaign a trophy was given to
the player who had the highest foul shooting percentage.
This, along with the job of captaining next year's team,
went to junior Tony Welde. One of the most gratifying
honors to be given this year was the choice of the past
season's honorary captain. There was no doubt in the
mind of any player as to whom they wished this honor
to be given. The team named senior Butch Grassan as
their honorary captain for 1953-54.
During the state tournament the basketeers won their
first contest by defeating Greenville, a team they had
beaten during the regular season. In their second game
against Lemon-Monroe, the boys were defeated by a two

Although the schedule shows the Dragon Reserves with
12 wins and three losses, the actual record at the end of
the season was I4 wins and l loss because Wilbtir
Wriglit and Patterson had to forfeit. The reserves went
through the M.V.l.. undefeated, which could mean that
in years to come our basketball will be on the rise.
After playing ragged ball the first part of the year, which
can be expected of a young team, the squad rolled
through the M,V.L. with comparative ease after winning
their first league game against Troy by one point. The
team ended the season very successfully by defeating a
big Roosevelt team and edging out the Northridge
quintet in their last game.

The l953 Golf Team had a highly successful season.
They won the Dayton Daily News city golf champion-
ship having a record of 12 wins and 2 ties, and they also
won the district golf championship with a total score of
513. Winning the district made them eligible for the
state tournament at Columbus, where they finished in
eleventh place. Highlights of their golf season were the
6113 to 514 victory over Oakwood and winning the dis-
trict. The lettermen on the team were seniors Don Todd,
Ron Bingamon and Roy Turner who composed the first
three men on the team. Sophomore Bernard Jump, who
was medalist in the district meet, was fourth man, and
junior Barry Reed was the fifth man.
Much of the success of the golf season was due to the
efforts of the coach, Mr. Paul Wagner. who made up
for his lack of knowledge of the game with his fine
spirit and desire which he passed on to the team.

The "Twilight Twirl" was the seniors' last dance presented
before their graduation in june.
The music room was decorated exclusively with bright hanging
stars, silver Christmas trees, and many other beautiful decora-
tions. The "Twilight Twirl" was given December the twelfth
and everyone was in the Christmas spirit.
jack Felkley's Band was chosen to play since he is a popular
favorite among teenagers of today.
The "Twilight Twirl" was another successful dance presented
by the Senior Class of "54".
The H1955 Prom" given last year for the graduating seniors
took place on a beautiful Southern plantation. A colonial man-
sion, trimmed with magnolias and ivy vines, added to the at-
tractive Southern setting. At one end was a wishing-well, which
was placed beneath a group of flowering trees. These were
actually living trees that the students cut themselves.
The band chosen to play was Bill Arnold's, and as the evening
progressed everyone agreed that it had been a wise choice.
As always, a popular couple of the graduating class was chosen
to reign over the Prom. This year Karen Rutherford and
Ronnie Dexter were picked as the "Beau and Belle" of the
Hauer Music House
Carole Howard, Beverly llussman. Karyl Butts, Donna Walters, Kay Stewart, Shirley Wfhite, Shirley Wfeiser. Nancy Kuhhat
On the 9th of October the Queen of Fairmont was crowned
and kissed by the Senior Class President, Phil Heeter, and pre-

her court were dressed in beautiful evening gowns. Kay's court
was Carole Howard, Nancy -Io Kuhbander, Karyl Butts,
Shirley Weisei', Beverly Hussman, Shirley Wluite, and Donna
Before the crowning the candidates were escorted around the
football field in shiny new cars, displaying their new gowns,
as well as their bright smiles, The tension began to grow as
the candidates lined up for the final selection of the queen.
The students cheered their approval as blushing Kay received
her flowers and her kiss. The happy queen and her attendants
were then escorted to special seats for the rest of the Fairmont-
After the game the queen and her court reigned over the
homecoming dance in the gymnasium. Here they were es-
corted to their throne by members of the football team. The
queen ascended the throne and received kisses from Bob Pugh
and Bill Vaughn, the co-captains of the football team. Kay
was then presented with the golden sceptre with which to reign
over the dance.
Kay's hard work alone would be enough to make her Fair-
mont's queen, but more important is the wonderful personality
that makes Kay, "our queenf'

The "Sweetheart Swing" was the name
chosen for the junior dance, which was held
February the oth. Decorations included big
red hearts and cute little bluebirds.
Two couples were chosen as king and
queen of the junior dance, which is quite
unusual. Everyone was pleased when Susie

We, of the 1954 Dragon, would like to express our sincere gratitude to Miss Jane McCallister who has devoted
a great deal of her time and effort toward helping us to make The Dragon a book that will bring back mem-
ories to all of us in regard to our high school days at Fairmont High. We would also like to thank the follow-
ing people who played such a large part in the making of our yearbook: faculty, school office, Indianapolis
Engraving Company, Powell Studios and the Graessle-Mercer Printing Company.
We hope that you will enjoy having this book of memories as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of th: members of The Dragon staff who have co-operated so
well in making The Dragon a record book containing al of the happy events that have taken place this year.
Good luck to all of you in whatever you choose to do in the future.
