FfCULTY J Administration MR D. L. BARNES Superintendent MR. MAURICE WOCAMAN Pupil Personnel Director MR. RUSSELL WORKING Assistant Pupil Personnel Director MR. J. E. PRASS Assistant Superintendent and Director of Curriculum MISS MARTHA APPLE Cafeteria Supervisor Board of Education Mr, MacFarland. Mr, Moyer. Mr. Eickman, Mr. Ernst. Mr. Krebs. The Board of Education members for the year 1954-1955 are: Chester A. Moyer, president; Cordon F. MacFarland, vice-president; George L. Ernst, clerk-treasurer; Willis E, Eickman and Robert M. Krebs. The greatest part of their work is the coping with the many details in the operation of seven elementary schools. Van Buren Junior High and Fairmont High School. They also worked very hard promoting the school bond levy bill. Since the success- ful passage of the bill, they have been working on the plans for the new, bigger and better, Fairmont High School. Nelson ' s Variety Store Principal and Counselors Richard R. Somers arrived at Fairmont March 4. 1929, as a commercial teacher. Later he became a guidance counselor and in September of 1949 assistant principal. He has been principal at Fair- mont for three years now. During his years at Fairmont. Mr. Somers originated a mimeographed monthly DRAGON, a newspaper in magazine form which was continued over a period of years. Also in the journalistic field he and Miss Hartsock were co-sponsors of the yearbook for several years. Mr. Somers formed the first F. H. S. golf team in 1930. He was advisor of the Photography Club for three years and the Anglers Club for four years. He a ' so was the head of the sophomore class for a number of years. His favorite hobby is photography, but he also enjoys fishing, and many of his summers are spent in Michigan with rod and reel in hand. Mr. Somers is a very familiar figure in and around Fairmont. His affable voice making the morning ' s announcements is one of the many things that Fairmont students will long remember. Mr. Flatter, Kent Dadisman. Howard Flatter is one of the busiest people at Fairmont. He is assistant principal, boys ' counselor and also teaches part of the boys ' personality adjustment classes. While working as assistant principal, he issues boys ' tardy and readmission blanks and takes a personal interest in any- one who becomes seriously ill during the year. As boys ' counselor, he advises the arranging of schedules and helps the seniors, especially, plan for the future. Mr. Flatter is particularly interested in the basic psychology courses given as a part of the personality adjustment classes, but his first love is the chemistry department, which he had to leave two years ago when he took over the duties of assistant principal. He also does a great deal of work for public relations through publi.c speaking in and around Kettering. Phyllis Smart, Mrs. Cithens. Mary Ann Cithens has been a member of the Fairmont faculty only two years, but in that short time she has acquired many duties. She is counselor for the girls and she also teaches a section of the girls ' personality adjust- ment classes. She is the advisor of the Junior Achieve- ment Club which she inaugurated this year, and she took over the sponsorship of the Future Teachers for Miss Warren, who is exchange teaching in France this year. As the girls ' counselor, her office is never empty; there are always tardy blanks to issue, college applications to be filled out, and rdvice being sought by underclassmen. Yet she is never too occupied to beam her familiar smile at anyone entering her door. The Dayton and Xenia Motor Bus Company Faculty ROBERT ALLEN English. . .School Paper RUTH ANDERSON English . . .

The Class of 1955 As we the class of ' 55 look back upon that September morning three years ago when our first eager steps were directed toward Fairmont High School, many fond memories begin to unfold. Our first chance to display many talents was the sophomore assembly. " Stand In For Juliet, " under the able direction of Bill Bass. " Island of Intrigue " was truly enjoyed by the students as the sopho- mores worked hard to make this first dance a success. As our junior ye ar dawned, responsibilities were gradually and continually growing. In addition to the wonderful dance, " Sweetheart Swing, " and assembly, " Americans in Algiers, " was the junior play, " Best Foot Forward, " by J. Cecil Holm. This light-hearted comedy helped to finance the Junior-Senior Banquet which was held the last of May. The climax of the year was the Junior- Senior Prom. It was well worth the effort displayed by everyone. A grand time was had by all. And now our last steps will echo through the halls of Fairmont as our senior year comes to a finale. Activities of our last year will linger in memories for years to come. Among the activities was our humorous comedy, " Pygmalion, " by George Bernard Shaw, We shall remember our last dance, " Toyland Fantasy. " School events come to end with " Record Rhapsody, " our last contribution to Fairmont High School. These three years will never be forgotten. We leave this message to next year ' s students: " Good luck and farewell from the class of ' 55.

The Junior Class The juniors began the year with a bang when they presented their annual dance, " Cupids Capers. " held in the cafeteria on February 19, 1955, with Marshall Reed supplying the music. A dazzling array of fiery red hearts could be seen among Cupid and his bow and arrow floating through the air. The next great event was their junior play. " Charlie ' s Aunt " under the direction of Miss Funck. The leads in the play were John Goetcheus, Lee Tussing, Karen Corsaw and Pat Kinkade. It was held in the auditorium on March 25 and 26. For the last two and most important events of the year, the juniors were hosts to the seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet held on May 14 and the prom which was held on May 20. This was the first in the history of Fairmont that the prom was taken outside of the school. This was due to the large number of juniors and seniors. It was decided that it would be held at the Miami Hotel. Congratulations to the juniors for a successful year, and lots of luck to them as next year ' s seniors.

The Class of ' 57 On September 8, 1954, the halls were full of scared but excited sophomores. They received their schedules and wandered all over the building until they were rescued by some proud upper classmen. Johnny Vorndran, a vivacious and handsome young gentleman, headed the largest class of sophomores that has ever attended Fairmont High School. The sophomores didn ' t have a chance to show their talent until the popular " Block F " came into existence. This gave the class of ' 57 an opporunity to exhibit their loyalty. This was one thing of which the whole student body could be proud. In the spring they put forth their biggest effort in entertaining the upper classmen. They could be seen putting up signs and lavish decorations for their annual spring dance. At the end of the school year their heads were bubbling with new ideas getting ready for their picnic. This consisted of choosing a place to spend the day and saying good bye to the sophomores and saying hello to the new juniors. The graduating class of ' 55 wishes next year ' s juniors the best of luck. San Rae Beauty Salon Sophomores ROW 1 : Sandy Archer, Wanda Bollinger, Phyllis Addison, Maralee Bordewisch, Christina Baer.

Milby and Messier Hardware and Variety Clubs HA The Annual Staff Kent Dadisman, Dee Miltenberger, Diana Reed. This year ' s annual staff, under the direction of their advisor, Miss McCallister, started work on the ' 55 Dragon early in September. Their first big decision for the ' 55 annual was made when they selected the idea of a scrapbook for the theme and to have the class ring emblems on the cover. The next problem was to sell advertisements to help finance the annual. Busy at this task was the busi- ness manager. Dee Miltenberger, with her assistant, Kent Dadisman. The biggest job on the staff was that of the editor-in-chief, Diana Reed, who was busy all year gather- ing pictures and copy information.

A new attraction was added this year for the first time in the history of the Fairmont band. Spark- ling Sandy Colwell, Fairmont ' s first drum major- ette, led the band through thick and thin. Even with sixteen new members, the band per- formed beautifully at the first football game, as well as all through the season. With great pre- cision and timing, the band played faithfully at every pep assembly, bonfire, and football game. From the first upbeat to the last downbeat, the band has built up an excellent reputation, and there is no end to the opportunities for its mem- bers, such as playing a few numbers to entertain at the Knight Templar State Convention at the Masonic Temple and for the Teachers ' State Convention held at the N.C.R. The band ' s top money-making project, the Fall Festival, held after the Miamisburg game, was a big success. The proceeds were used for new uniforms for the band and rhythmettes. Under the direction of Clark Haines, the band has upheld its reputation for being a first class organization. And Rhythmette Corps The Rhythmettes, under the direction of Ernie Ross and Cadet Captain Manja Moore, finished their fifth season of football programs, concerts, and outside shows. The top officers, who were first lieutenant, Linda Ekberg; second lieutenant, Sharon Meyers: and top sergeant, Evelyn Boyer, did a grand job in helping to direct the forty girl corps of 1954-1955. Twenty-seven new members were added to the corps this year, and new uniforms were sported by everyone. Another new addition was the all white uniform worn by each of the top four officers. The corps performed another outstanding show when they danced at the Masonic Temple for the Knight Templar convention. As a result of hard work, added to the season ' s football programs this year were the baton twirl- ing routines, well received by everyone. The Rhythmettes made another grand perform- ance with their dances and kick lines when they appeared in Fairmont ' s operetta, Carousel. We salute the ' 54- ' 55 corps of Rhythmettes.

Convention at N. C. R., the Dayton Dental Society and the Sara- toma Club. They received a warm wel- come from the students when they took part in the annual Christmas assembly. The chorus took on a big responsibility when they decided on Carousel for their annual operetta, but as usual they came through and did an outstanding job. Leads in the operetta were Sally Holloway, Bob Miller, Wayne Appleman, Viola Raines, Gary Clark and Pat Lowles. Of course the operetta, programs, contests and assemblies the chorus participated in couldn ' t have been possible without the capable direction of Mr. Haines. Practice for the operetta The Concert Band and Orchestra This year the orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Hard, was for the first time in many years composed of all Fairmont students. This was also the first year the orchestra gave an assembly for the students. Excellent individual and group performances were staged by the students Besides the assembly, the orchestra has played for various other events, such as the junior and senior plays and the operetta. The concert band is composed of 103 members and is under the direction of Clark Haines. The season this past year consisted of two concerts on February 12 and May 1 3. The concerts were held this year at Van Buren Junior High School because of the many people who attend. Both concerts were very successful.

They took a tour through the pathology laboratory of Miami Valley Hospital. They had a chemical magic show given by director of research at Frigi- daire. Projects and student demonstrations were both educational and interesting. Junior Red Cross The Fairmont chapter of the Junior Red Cross, with their advisor. Miss Urick, filled a fifth chest for needy people. Also they had many projects to raise money for their organization. National Forensic League The members of National Forensic League of Fairmont this year have upheld Fairmont ' s past records in receiving numerous top honors. This year N. F. L. has an active membership of forty-eight, nine of whom participate in debate. Other members participate in the individual events which consist of humor, dramatic, original oratory, oratorical declamation, and girls ' and boys ' extemporaneous speech.

Available through the year for those students who are interested in foreign languages are three language clubs — French, Latin, and Spanish, Every club has its monthly meetings with its advisor, and special meetings are planned with parties and speakers. The main event of the year was the Mardi Cras attended by all three clubs. The Spanish Club, with its advisor Miss Davis, had many interesting discus- sions about their language. The club held a Christmas Party at which the members learned of the Christmas customs in Spanish-speaking countries. The French Club, under the direction of Mrs. Fargeix, an exchange teacher from France, has been learning the customs of France. They had a movie called " The Man In the Iron Mask " open to the school as their main project of the year. The Latin Club, directed by Miss Heitzman, held a god and goddess party, where each member came dressed as a god or goddess. They joined the Spanish Club for their Christmas party, each club sharing their customs of the Christmas season with the other.

One of the meetings was a huge slumberless party, held in the basement of Creenmont Church. The other meetings included an ice hockey game, a dance, the Ice Follies, and some movies. Also there was a mother and daughter banquet. The intramural program offers quite a variety of activity. The sports include tennis, golf, volley- ball, hockey, Softball, swimming, bowling and basketball. The girls take part in interscholastic sports and compete with schools in this area.

Shirley Garrett managed to score the most points with the help of the rest of the team. Reserve Hockey The reserve team this vear was one of the best reserve teams Fairmont has ever had. They kept the varsity players on their toes, since all positions are open to the best players. Although some of them were sophomores, the team as a whole was well experienced. They certainly deserve more credit than they receive because they practiced hard and always kept up the team ' s spirit. The season was brought to a successful ending at the annual banquet in the school cafeteria where the girls received their letters. VARSITY; ROW 1: Pat Dunham.

Delta Hi-Y supported Janis Hazenfield; Gamma Hi-Y, Pat Jollay; Kappa Hi-Y, Jeannie Schvi ieterman ; Sigma Hi-Y, Dotty Colburn; and Theta Hi-Y, Manja Moore. The week before the queen was announced during the half at the Fairmont-Xenia game, the halls of Fairmont were filled with colorful signs and campaign slogans of all kinds. Of the five candidates, vivacious, blonde-haired Dotty Colburn was chosen to reign over the Homecoming Dance of 1954. Left to right: Janis Hazenfield, Manja Moore, Jeannie Schwieterman, Dotty Colburn, Pat Jollay, Bob Emery Senior Dance The " Toyland Fantasy " was chosen as the theme for the last dance presented by the Class of ' 55. On the evening of December 18, the cafeteria was fi lled with many colorful decorations consisting of the posts decorated like big red and white candy canes, teddy bears, dolls, and toy soldiers on the walls and everything else to get the guys and gals into the Christmas spirit. To give out with the music for this pre-season social event, the " Rhythmairs " was chosen by the orchestra selection committee of the senior class. The highlight of the evening was the surprise appearance of Santa Claus. This merry gentleman turned out to be Mr. Fowler, a former teacher at Fairmont High School. The night turned out to be one that will be long remembered. Junior Dance The " Cupid ' s Capers, " the first event presented by the Junior Class this year, was held on February 19, in the cafeteria. Marshall Reed ' s orchestra played selections for this gay affair. The theme of " Cupid ' s Capers " was built around Valentines Day. Sophomore Dance The " Snowflake Twirl, " the first big event of the new year, was presented by the Sophomore Class. This event, the first given by the Sophomore Class, as held on January 8, in the cafeteria. The music was provided by the jukebox. The decorations consisted of all sizes and shapes of snowflakes, little snwmen and blue and white streamers hanging from the wall to coincide with the winter season. During the intermission, Harold Wright played selections on the piano. The night was a complete success. Senior Assembly ' Record Rhapsody " The Senior Class Assembly was held on April 15. An old impresario, Mr Champ, dreamed of the people he promoted in the world of show business as each person emerged from a giant record album and performed the act that made him successful. Always remembering his hi gh school days, Mr. Champ dreams his old school- mates are standing before him giving their farewell assembly. At the close of the dream, Mr. Champ passes on, having recalled to mem- ory his life inspired by his last high school days. President of the senior class, Bob Emery de- livered a farewell speech. This assembly was the last presentation by the Class of ' 55. The seniors wish all of the future Fairmontonians good luck. ROW 1 : B. Bruns, Emery, J. S. Ballou, N. J. Hazenfield Wine. Burns, C.

The Junior Play On March twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth, the curtain opened on " Charley ' s Aunt, " the world famous farce, which has moved millions of people to tears of laughter. Charley ' s Aunt couldn ' t come for the rendezvous the boys had arranged for their college sweethearts, so one of the underclassmen masquer- aded as the aunt. The complications which developed were fun for everyone. The cast included John Coetcheus as Charley ' s Aunt, Lee Tussing, Karen Cor- saw, and Patti Kinkade. Both nights of the play proved to be a rousing success for the whole audience. Lee Tussing, John Goetcheus, Dave Greenlee. Wanda Chynoweth, John Goetcheus, Bobbie Gillespie. The Prom of 1954 The 1954 Prom given last spring for the graduating seniors took place under an oriental atmosphere. There was a " good luck " gate to walk under. A red bridge crossed over a pond which was covered with peonies. The array was separated by a fountain and a water falls in back of the bridge. Hanging from the ceiling could be seen Japanese lanterns. To add to this beauty there were real trees trimmed with cherry blossoms and ming trees of angel hair. The music of Karl Taylor sent the seniors on their way remembering their happy days at Fairmont. As always, a popular couple of the graduating class was chosen to reign over the dance. With unan- imous applause, Donna Walters and Dick Barr accepted their titles of Empress and Emperor to make the evening a complete success. 1954 Prom Committees PROM COMMITTEE ROW 1 : Betty Margetts, Dee Miltenberger, Manja Moore, Jeannie Schwieterman, Pamela Dean, Dotty Colburn, Karia Wilda- son.
