Text from Pages 1 - 164 of the 1929 volume:
"Bill" played a very consistent and steady game. "Bill" was called on whenever a few
yards were most needed and he generally got them. Althought he was one of the light men on
the team. he had the snap and steam right from the start to the end. Deeds will be with us
one more year and we expect a lot from him.
"Bus" was the only player on the team who could almost lill Bish's boots. Vkfhenever Bish
was out "Bus" went in and played the game for all it was worth. He played a good defensive
game and an exceptional offensive game. "Bus" knows how to handle either end of a pass and.
since he is coming back next year, we'll have a chance to see him in motion again.
"Babe" played a wonderful game. Everyone could always depend on him to stop at least
one man and sometimes more. Hendricks was cool at the very hottest moments of a game and
always centered the pigskin in an effective way and to the place it did the most good.
"Red" played like a veteran football player this year, Whenever he went
was sure to get him. The opponents that got by him had to sit on him in

Findlay High School athletics made a wonderful start in track events, This was the Hrst
time our school has ever tried out a track team and it proved to be a successful attempt. In the
tryouts it soon appeared that we could have a better team than we expected in amateur tracks as
there were fast runners. high and broad jumpers. hurdlers. discus throwers and shot putters.
Then came the first track meet with Carey whom we swamped by a big score and out-did
all the expectations of the students. The stadium again showed its use here as it was only
through the wonderful track provided that these meets were possible. When the very successful
season was brought to a close the spirit of track was imbedded in the school and will probably
live for a long time.
The schedule that was arranged by Mr. Robbins and carried out was as follows:
April 20-Carey May ll-Lima
April 27-Bryan May l84Ada

ThirdfC. A. Robbins. E. Crosser. C. Hendricks. B. Benson. R. T. linode.
This year was an opening for Findlay High School baseball fans to show their valor. The
team which was put out was capable of competing with any school in this vicinity and was
received by them with enthusiasm. Vwlhen tryout was called. about forty boys responded and it
did not take long to see they knew something about baseball and with a little practice they
developed the leading factor. teamwork. In this sport as in others. the excitement and play ran
high and hard. but the good sportsmanship prevailed.
After the team once got under way. it held its own with the best. XVithout a doubt. old
Findlay High will have bigger and better teams to follow in the footsteps of this first one which
broke the path. Mr. Robbins deserves much credit for the way in which he arranged the
schedule and put the team across. The seasons schedule was as follows:

cheers, the cries of excitement and eagerness, the strains of
a stirring march played by the band-it is the night of a
Those nights when the score was so close as to cause
to rise from fast-beating hearts fervent prayers for a
"break"-those nights when the team, playing- at its best
and striving for success, lost by a narrow margin--those
are the nights we remember. And then those hard-fought
battles in which the decision was awarded us-can we
ever forget them?
To the departing players on the teams, and to those
remaining behind-here's to victories next year, here, at
college, and in life.

called into play. The team showed up their valor to a high extent when they entered the district
tournament at Bowling Green. They were really a true asset to Findlay High when they trouped
out on the floor in their natty attire and played the game. The season's scores are as follows:

CAPTAIN ROBERT MOORHEAD-Guard
"Bob" was a snappy little captain who led his lighting Eve through a successful year, Moor-
head played a good hard, clean. game which won even the admiration of the opponents. lt was
great to see "Bob" loop those field goals whenever the game was close.
"Babe" was tall and just fitted to the job given to him. He played for all he was worth
and could out-jump the majority of centers Whom he came up against. "Babe" had an option on
making just a certain number of points in every game which could invariably be depended upon.
JAMES CLARK -Forward
"Jimmy" often saved the day with one of his field goals. He played not only a very hard
offensive game but also a wonderful defensive part. Whenever a point was wanted, the ball
was passed to "Jimmy" and a point was no longer needed. Everyone will be glad to know that
he will be with us next year.
"Gunny" was a veteran this year and his play certainly showed it. Everytime "Gunny"
moved he was cool and deliberate. He played a hard, fast game and kept the opposing score
down to a minimum. As "Gunny" has been with us three years, it will seem odd not to have
him next year.
"Bishy" displayed the same snap and speed on the floor as he did on the football field.
Charles could dribble the ball from one end of the floor to the other before you could think of it.
He played a defensive game which was hard to beat.
ONE HUNDRED AND SEVEN
Whenever a basket was needed. "Gerry" would loop it. Collins is a new player this year.
but he certainly can handle himself on the floor. He plays a hard, clean, offensive game and an
excellent defensive game. "Gerry" will be with us next year. so we should expect much from
It has often been said that a team was as good as the second team that made it. This
saying was truly carried out by "Swede." Whenever something unforseen appeared Ludwig was
always ready to take his place in the game as a good center.
Baker was always the reliable substitute the team could fall back on. He had a snappy
style of playing and always played for what there was in the game. Wheneifer it was necessary
for a basket or two. Bob was just the man to loop 'em.
After Haley had done his bit as student manager during the football season, he appeared
on the basketball floor to make his debut. He worked hard and long and soon became a snappy
guard and a dependable sub in a tight place.
Don started out his basketball career two years ago but unfortunately could not continue
until this year. As soon as he started to work to bring himself up to shape great possibilities
showed. He rapidly developed into a remarkable forward. and only did the lateness of the season
prevent his receiving a letter.
ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT
First Cseatedl-J. Billstone, M. Hirscher. B. Schrier. M. Kelley. S. Struble. T. Chambers.
Second-QI.. Dreisbach. K. Book, N. Coldren. R. Andrus. D. Diehlman. A. Fisher.
Third-Mr. Robbins, C. Jacobs. R. Caldwell. V. Simendinger, E. Tyner. Miss Enright.
This year the Girl's Basketball Team was composed entirely of seniors. a thing which
doesn't happen very often.
Captained by Bertha Schrier and coached by Miss Lena Enright the team captured four
games and lost two, one of them to our old opponent Liberty.
Much credit should be given to the entire squad which faithfully practiced and from whose
efforts the team greatly benefitted.
The Gir1's Second Team also played several games. winning all of them. This was good
practice for those of the team who will play next year.
The record for 1929 follows:

ONE HUNDRED AND NINE
To that public-spirited couple whose lasting monument shall
stand in the city in the form of a magnificent stadium-to a man and
wife Whose generous gift has contributed so much to the cause of
athletics and youth-to those who have placed their native city in
rank with others of greater numbers-to Mr. and Mrs. O. D. Don-
nell, the donors of the J. C. Donnell Memorial Stadium, we, the
Class of 1929, do dedicate this yearbook.
BERTHA SCI-IRIER QF 7 -Captain
Bertha certainly was a basketball player if there ever was one. Playing for two years on
the team she was always on the alert, full of action and ready to put her very best into the game.
As captain of the team she had much to do with influencing the spirit of the players. Much to
our regret. this is her last year in old Findlay High.
JESSIE BILLSTONE CFD
Jessie. our tall center, was one of our high scorers as well as a crack center. One of her
best points was her knack for shooting long shots when points were most needed.
lt was usually pretty hard work for any guard to get past her or to recover the ball after
she had captured it. Jessie also is saying good-bye to us this year.
TREVA CHAMBERS KFT
Vklords are useless in describing the speed of our little forward, Treva. To see her playing
in a game was like watching a streak of lightning. Many a guard was made dizzy by trying
to keep up with her. ln fact she could "run circles" around her opponent every time. Treva
is another good forward we are losing in the graduating class this year.
NINA COLDREN QF!
Nina, an excellent player, was just discovered in her senior year. She made up for lost
time by showing us she could keep her head and play a very admirable game when called upon.
NVe hate to think that we have found her only to lose her. Yes. she is another of our seniors.
LOUISE DREISBACH QFB
Louise, a reserve forward was one of those players who never seemed to get excited and
could always play a good game. She had an accurate eye for baskets and was always sure of
Vv'e shall expect to hear more from her next year as she is one of the few who are not
ONE HUNDRED AND TEN
MARTHA HIRSCH ER 1 G J
Martha was about as good a guard as you could fmd anywhere, Full of energy and fast on
her feet she could keep almost any forward from gaining much headway. When there was a
tie-ball she was usually at the bottom of it. which of course, was not to her discredit. Loathe
as we are to say it. she will graduate this year.
SARAH ELLEN STRUBLE C65
Sarah was one of our outstanding guards this year. Being an exceptionally good jumper
she would invariably get the ball to her team's end of the floor. Very few guards had her
determination and persistence. We hope to have more guards like Sarah in the future and will
surely miss her next fall.
KATHERINE BOOK fGl
Kate. one of our reserve guards, could be depended upon to hold down the defensive end
of the game any time she was booked to play, She would break up passes. get in the way of her
forward. and in general spoiled the playing of her opponent,
Kate. too, is a senior, whether we like it or not.
DOROTHY DIEHLMAN KG!
Dorothy was a very fine guard and always played a good game. She could get rid of the
ball when it came her way in an amazingly short time and get it to the right player. too. She
contributed much toward the teamwork of the players.
As she is a junior we are depending a great deal on her for next year.
For three years Mildred showed her excellent ability to play the position of guard. When
she got started she could break up the best of dribbles and juggles. How we hate to say that she
will also leave us this year!

First-R. Dreisbach, N. Baldwin, D. Corbin.
Second-C. Barkinier, B. Benson, J. Beeson. J. Clymer.
After a hard, fast season of intra-mural basketball the strongest again came to the top.
Home Room 212 under the sponsorship of Mr. Starr made a remarkable showing by coming
through the season Without a defeat to blemish their record. The tournament, which was short
and snappy, certainly played the teams out quick, and the winners deserved the credit they won.
The boys played with all their might and main and through sheer determination Won although
some of the games were topped by only one point.
The teams that were the last to be eliminated were those of 206 and 2l3. Both of these
teams fought hard and fast. but were not quite up to 212.
Mr. Robbins deserves much credit for making out the schedule and promoting these games
in such a fine way.
The champion team lineup is as follows: Dreisbach, Baldwin, Corbin. Barkimer. Benson.

they won the baseball cup. Much credit is due to Mr. Miller. who is in charge of the home
room, and who kept the spirit running so high that the juniors copped the cup for the nrst time.
The hnals ran high with excitement as the seniors were very reluctant to let the cup go.

A universal requisite in all organizations. be they civic, religious or
educational. is a group of recognized leaders. Filling its place in
the school, as the oflicers of the county at the Court House, is the
As the right to an education belongs to each youth of the nation.
it is a civic necessity that excellent schools and capable teaching corps
be provided. Our supervisors are but a few of the millions who are
answering this challenge, which grows more and more important as
the years roll by.
Personal pleasure is put aside. social activities give way to the
needs of the school, and the life of a teacher is often merged into that
of a scholar.
For its indefatigable participation in the interests of the school,
for its many acts of kindness by which the sometimes hazy future has
been perceptibly brightened, the Class of 1929 takes this opportunity
of expressing its gratitude and appreciation to its friends, the faculty.

A husband and wife sat on the same jury
in Kentucky and-yes, you've guessed it-
the jury disagreed.
Mr. A.: I bought a hat for my wife and
I had to run home all the way.
Mr. B.: What for?
Mr. A.: I was afraid the style would
'change before I got home.
XVashington never told a lie, but it must
be remembered he entered politics when the
country was very new.

A school in which there is an excess of class rivalry is liable to
become a battle field, crowded with embittered factions. A school in
which there is no strife between classes is in danger of growing stag-
nant and lifeless. It is best to strike a happy medium.
A spirit of fellowship which pervades the three classes of the
school is a condition which mcrits further development. Seniors,
juniors, and sophomores intermingle with a refreshing freedom. A
remarkable co-operation is evident in all activities. and all classes have
pulled together commendably to accomplish their ends,
Yet there has been enough class distinction and a sufficient amount
of rivalry to enliven the activities of the school. In all circles there
is an exhilarating atmosphere of competition.
May the future classes continue in this capacity of "friendly
enemies" and Working hand in hand raise their alma mater to new
pinnacles of prestige.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
The class of 1929 has a reputation to be proud of. Beginning school the year 1917, we
have made much progress, and have made a name for ourselves in many activities and events
of our school life. Although we began our school career in many different schools, we have
all worked toward the same end.
We were the irst to graduate from the new junior high schools, thus making a name for
ourselves in that line. We were given our lirst chance to present a play of our own, and we
made good. The first competition in football and basketball between the junior high schools
was inaugurated that year. The Hrst school paper and annual of those schools were under
In 1926 we were all united in one group, sophomores at Findlay Senior High School. There
we organized ourselves as one body. Several of our members were prominent in plays, clubs.
and other extra-curricular activities. NVe boasted the largest class of Senior High, and have since
done our bit to maintain that standard.
In the junior year we again carried off many of the honors. Under the guidance of our
officers President Charles Gunn, Vice-President Gerald Nelson. Secretary Evelyn Hart, Treasurer
Margaret Schwyn, we upheld our standard of action by presenting one of the best junior plays
ever presented in the High School by having a number of our members cast in prominent parts
in the operetta, by boasting of several letter men on both football and basketball teams, by the
fine chapel programs, and by sponsoring the Junior-Senior Reception. We also helped inaugurate
"College Day," a day set aside for college representatives to interview our students.
Early last September we again determined to carry on the traditions, and to accept the
challenge of the Class of "28." Major activities, in which a large number of our members
have taken a prominent part are athletics. journalism, clubs. plays. and debates. We hope that
the incoming seniors will take charge of the activities as they have been taken care of in the
past, not only of our class but of all preceding ones. With the presentation of a very suc-
cessful class play, we brought our high school career to a successful end.
The sponsors of the Senior Class this year were Miss Sylvia West and Mr. Dale Hutson.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
The Juniors have been establishing themselves very firmly in the minds of the students of
Findlay High as a responsible class,
Starting in the new Junior High Schools the same year as the Seniors they helped to put
across many projects that were benelicial to the school and should receive a just reward.
In both schools they helped to make the first play a success by having several of their
members in the casts. Also many of them were in the eisteddfod of the two schools. They were
also on the staff of the school paper and on the athlelic teams.
Coming to Senior High they readily accustomed themselves to the habits and rules of the
school and did their part in the furthering of the schools progress. They organized their class
wi h James Beardsley, president: Eugene Copeland, vice-president: Dortha Headworth, secretary:
and Clarence Hendricks. treasurer. Under these oflicers and their sponsors they set forth to make
themselves known in Findlay High.
This year they again held up their standard of work and presented a very good class plav:
in fact it was said to be one of the best Junior class plays ever presented in Findlay Senior High.
Also in the opere.ta which was very successful. we found many of the Juniors, Then, too. there
were the debate teams. On these we find two in very prominent positions and several others in
minor roles. all making for the good of the teams. On this years athletic teams we find many
Juniors playing a major part.
The Juniors will, I think. fill the place vacated by the Seniors this year. They have the
ability and will to carry on the work of the outgoing Senior Class. XVe need not fear that the
work will not be satisfactory,

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
The Sophomores like the Juniors and Seniors seem to have played an important part in
the history of the two Junior Highs.
Not much is known about the Sophomores before they entered the new schools. because
there were not so many activities for them to take part in. But in the Junior Highs they were
given more opportunity to take part in school activities such as the chorus. school play, and
school council. That first year, which marked the beginning of a school paper, and a real play.
we find several Sophomores taking part in some of the unimportant roles. Competition, in
basket-ball was started a year later and in this way prepared them for the varsity basketball at
Having been in such an atmosphere for three years previous. upon entering the Senior
High they were more accustomed to the ways of the school. They participated more freely in
the different activities, learned the rules and submitted more readily to the old tradition that
Sophomores are supposed to be dumb and awkward.
About mid-year they elected their class oflicers and through the work of these officers and
a special committee were able to present a very interesting chapel program on famous paintings.
We may also find several Sophomores in the Chapel Choir. a group of the best singers who help
to make our chapels more impressive and interesting.
ln football, basketball, baseball, and track the sophomores were well represented, There
is a line possibility of having good athletic teams in the near future.
ln the scholastic contest conducted by Ohio State University at Columbus one of thc
Sophomores ranked first in Latin with a grade of ninety-nine and one-half: two others ranked
Thus we can see that the Sophomores are becoming more and more an important link in the
chain of events in the High School.

The world lies stretched before them, this Class of
'29. A roseate vista of new fields to conquer, new services
to render, and higher glories to attain is theirs.
There passes across their memory an endless review of
parties, games and activities which will remain with them
always, even though they leave behind the familiar walls
of the school.
Perhaps of more importance is the host of friends each
senior has made. As the months and years pass. and the
class is separated one by one, the recollection of those old
pals of the past will be ever sweet and poignant.
To the social whirl, to the games, to the studies, to
the friendships-may this be the farewell toast of the
Class of 1929.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Upon receiving an invitation to the reunion of the Class of 1929. to be held at the new
Riverside Park which is under the management of Ruth Chapman. on the last Friday in Septem'
ber 1939, we prepared to leave our home in Columbus on the preceding Thursday.
Vvfe instructed our chauffeur. Thomas Jordan. to drive us in our newly improved Muller
"Twelve," to the Caldwell Air Transport Company. situated in the Annabelle Moore Addition
at the end of Schwyn Avenue, Arriving at the field in the middle of the forenoon we procured
passageway from Richard Bayless on the latest Arras Twin-Motor Monoplane. Through the
courtesy of James Beeson. who is in charge of the field, we were permitted to look over the
grounds. Our escort was none other than the erst-while woman-hater, Bud Doyle. After
leaving the waiting room we were ushered into the sanctum of the inner office. presided over by
Joe Siford, ably assisted by Pauline Fisher and Freda Hough. Passing through the hangar we
saw three junked mail-planes whose respective designers were Arthur Mathias. Helen Fornes. and
Florence Bond, and three newly constructed bombing planes. whose respective designers were
Samuel Bryant. Cloyce Cavins. and Dean Hochstettler, We arrived in the repair shop whose
mechanics. Robert Porter and James Neeley. were carefully directed by Chalmers King. When
the time came for us to depart we learned that our aviatrix was Treva Chambers: mechanic.
Dale Erwin: and radio operator. Loretta Crippen. After being assisted into the plane by held
man. Delbert Corbin. we noticed that our fellow passengers were Mr, Fred Gohlke and his beauti-
ful wife. the former Martha Folk: Robert Bowman. the noted pianist and his wife Lydia Hamil-
ton: Vera Traxler. Mary Liz Walker. and Sarah Ellen Struble. with Harlow Haley. Charles
Gunn. and Merritt Swartz. noted big-game hunters just back from Africa. We noticed a Very
splendid work of art. painted by none other than our old schoolmate Richard Beard. who. we
learned. had been traveling in Europe with his friends. Robert Moorhead, worldffamed football
star. and Jean Pfau a welfare worker.
NVhile enroute to Findlay. we were entertained with a radio program broadcast over station
NV-A-R-D. XVe tunedfin in time to hear Earl Doty. announcing. through the courtesy of the
Laub and Ludwig Watch Corporation. the last selection of the Myers Brothers, George and
Donald, known as Big Ben Twins. "lt's Six O'clock in the Morning." composed by Mary Ellen
Altman. We arrived in Findlay at noon at the field of the Crosser Airplane Manufacturing
Company. and were assisted to the ground by Mildred Kelly. footwoman. Acting as porters
were Jesse Billstone. Margaret Quick. Mary McEwen, and Esther Herbst. We had barely alighted
when we noticed a peculiarly constructed machine descending from the clouds. Overcome with
curiosity we advanced and saw in the cockpit. Ray Brundige, Questioning him we were in-
formed that he was testing this model by Robert Dreisbach. who was a former mechanic under
We hailed a taxi. driven by William Alspach, and were whisked through the streets at such
a rate that we heard a husky voice in the person of John Hoppenberg. ordering us to stop. After
the driver showed a paper from the Chief of Police. Paul Kirsten. we were allowed to proceed
to the Marvin Hotel. Af er a dinner of three courses which was served by three beautiful wait-
resses, Luella Goudy, Jane Schatzel, and Carolyn Snook. and was cooked by Anna Dirmeyer.
Martha Bernhardt. and Mary Askey. we were entertained by the hotel orchestra conducted by
Dick Betts, and composed of Helen Bair. Thelma Bishop, Kathryn Book. Mary Jo Cole. Edna
Honecker. Edna Mohler. Robert Baker. John Clymer, Clifford Elliott. and Gratton Johnson.
On our way to the theater in the company of Willard Corbin, Arthur Bond. and Byron
Benson escorting. respectively, Mary Rudolph. Helen Hardy. and Ruth Fry. we heard Congress-
man Baldwin stump-speaking for Vv'ayne Althaus, the Democratic candidate. against Evelyn Hart.
Republican, and Joe Biery. Socialist.
We arrived at the Weakley Theatzr, purchased our tickets from Thelma White, and were
ushered to our seats by the dapper gentleman. Walter Weber. ln due time the show, featuring
Fawn Moyer and Charles Musson, started. ln the chorus we observed Lucille Yokom. Cleo
Wyer, Georgia Wisterman. Betty Strathman, Annabelle Smith and Bertha Schrier, ln the midst
of the show Sergeant Charles Bish was called upon to restore order backstage. between the
Manager Orville Haide and one of the specialty dancers. Kathryn lnslcy.
Being very tired we slept until noon on Friday. In the afternoon we hired a Taylor sport
model roads'er from the Urschalitz Brothers Garage in the Wiler block. We first visited the
Rader HospiTal managed by Helen Niselev. We visited the patient. Cecil Waggoner, attend by
Cecil Polen. We learned that among the other nurses were. Alice Sausser. Marylynn Wineland.
Ruth Singleton and Dorothy Spitler. Leaving the hospital we visited the new Genevieve Miller
Department Store, We were admitted by the doorman, Jesse Wagner. Here we found some of our
former schoolmates, Caroline Launder, Martha Dipert, Nina Coldren, Marjory Wiseman, as
clerks. Running the elevators were Geraldine Cooper, Eleanor Copeland, and Madella Snyder.
At seven-thirty we arrived at Riverside Park for the banquet. The hostess for the occasion
was Mary Snyder. After dinner we heard Maynard Ritter, after-dinner speaker, introduced by
Mary Ruth Simpson. A humorous sketch called "Recollections of 1929" by Edna Sites. was ably
presented by Evelyn Baker. Mercedes Fetzer, and Charles l-lissong. Mak.ng the rounds of the
concessions we found that the bowling alleys were in charge of John Edwards. The whip,
rolly-coaster, and the fun house were in charge of Treva Gillespie. Gladys Blackman, and Harold
After the banquet we accompanied Martha l-lirscher and Ethel Severns, millinery experts
at Lamson's and Tiedke's department stores in Toledo, to the Newman Cafe. where we enjoyed
a very delightful chat with the proprietor and our guests, thus bringing to a close one of the
most delightful evenings of our lives.
On the following morning We departed feeling that we had been amply repaid for our time
spent in coming to Findlay.
Not to be surpassed by their senior friends, the Class of
1930 pressed on and in no activity did they attain lesser
honors than their elder confreres.
With their advent to the class next to the seniors, they
immediately took upon their broad shoulders the added
responsibilities in a manner which portends much for
future laurels. In dramatic, musical and debate work they
have captured highest honors,
To this class, the Seniors of 1930, the graduating class
commits the duties and privileges of the upper class. May
they be given the power to acquit themselves of this trust
in a commendable manner.

No longer is the innocence and verdure of the sopho-
more an object of scorn and ridicule. for certainly the Class
of 1931 has ably proved the falsity of such nomenclature.
Emerging from a three-year junior high school prepa-
ration they have shown themselves superior in many in-
stances to their junior and senior friends. Scholarship.
club activities, musical participation, and even debate have
been a few of the fields in which the lower class has stood
forth so prominently.
The Class of 1930 extends to them its heartiest wishes
for future honors as great as those enjoyed during the past
year. Good luck!

JUST ONE LITTLE THING AFTER ANOTHER
The Young Men's Christian Association ills a need in the com-
munity which is of the highest importance. Modern business. with
its high-powered, high-pressure procedure, must have an outlet, .1
means of recreation which will offer relaxation and rest. The Y. M.
C. A. fills this place in the masculine world as no other can.
So in the high school the extra-curricular activities are means of
self-expression, of pleasure, and of education. In educational value
they are probably second only to the classes. Journalistic, dramatic.
oratorical, and musical talent has been discovered far and wide and
those abilities have been furthered immeasurably.
One is judged not only by his knowledge obtained from books
but also from his general social training, his culture, and the broadness
of his education. These qualities are invaluable and have been injected
into the students to a very large extent by the devotion of much of
their spare moments to the broad field of activities.

Journalism is now a recognized vocation and the lead-
ing high schools of the country are following the popular
trend in offering courses in this interesting subject, Train-
ing in newspaper work prepares one for one of the most
romantic, exciting and valuable of vocations. and surely
time spent in the study can not be counted as lost.
In the work connected with the publications are several
deparlments, all filled by responsible students, selected for
their talent or interest in this branch of school activities.
Small has been the material recompense of these toilers. but
great is the satisfaction when they contemplate the finished
product of their hands.

There are those in every enterprise who go about their work in so quiet and unassuming a
manner as to seem to be scarcely accomplishing their tasks. Such are the students in the ad-
veriising division of the business staff.
XVith immeasurable responsibility on their shoulders they have pushed on in this rather
thankless department and the publication of the annual and newspaper was assured. They have
literally scoured the city. canvassing all merchants and manttfacturers. and securing all possible
subscriptions for space.
No small share of their success is due to the friendly reception of the representatives by
the business men. Vilith even this favorable condition. however. many difficult situations were
encountered in persuading the merchants of the value of advertising in a high school publication.
ln past years the students in this division were divided into teams. each being given a
specified part of the business section of the community. This year it was thought wiser not to
appoint teams. but to have each student-salesman work for himself. Excellent results were
obtained from this system.

Each room had one. each room suffered his repeated warnings of passing time, and each
room at length gave in to its solicitor.
Salesmen each and all. they were entrusted with the task of securing the so necessary sub-
scriptions for their annual and newspaper. For it matters not how superior the publication
may be. it can certainly not be a linancial success without a large number of subscriptions.
Here. as in no other branch of the publication work. was seen the rivalry between home-
rooms. There was a fierce struggle to see which room would first obtain the 100 percent rating.
and with a clatter and bang Room 213. sponsored by Mr, Hutson. went over the top. the
winner. Others followed in quick succession.
The leadership of John Hoppenberg. business manager. and Robert Dreisbnch. circulation
manager. was responsible for much of the success of the campaign, To the students of the
school We wish to express our gratitude for the willing co-operation which was shown.
"As busy as a bee" may be a standard simile. but for those connected with this department,
"as busy as a staff member" was much more apropos. For certainly there are few places in the
school which produce such hustle and bustle as the room in which the Blue and Gold staff
struggled daily with their assignments.
Under the cheerful leadership of Mr. Hutson, the staff really labored this year to produce a
bigger and better newspaper. Innovations were made in the form of the size of the paper. the
use of cuts, and changes in type. Literary material found a hearty reception and poetry, essays,
book reviews and critical reports of dramatic and musical events were published in nearly every
The annual staff began its difficult work after Christmas and was busily engaged in its
work for months. as it seemed.
In the annual the staff made some important changes. introducing several novel and popular
features, Chief among them is the use of a decidedly modernistic art theme. with a cover
designed in the same style. ln doing this, we have only followed the modern trend so noticeable
in prominent high school and college yearbooks.
It has been no simple task to publish this annual, as those know who have been connected
with the staff. Our greatest difficulty, as in past years, was in the problem of the pictures,
group and individual. Even when the struggle of the taking of the groups was over, the editors
spent weary hours carefully identifying each face in the pictures. We trust you will appreciate
the work required in order that in future years. you. the readers, in glancing over the pages, may
accurately recall the features of your old schoolmates,
In both the newspaper and annual. a careful study has been made of the situation in
former editions with a view to remedying defects and bringing the publication into the all-
Pimerican class. Already enjoying high honors in both fields we have not been content with
any but the highest.
The dull monotony of life is constantly broken and
the zest of living is brightened by the liberal sprinkling of
social activities. ln the High School this element is pro-
vided by the many and varied organizations which meet
at frequent intervals.
Club meetings. banquets, picnics, and parties form part
of the program of the typical organization. Throughout
the year there is a continual line of social events following
in rapid succession. which is a pleasant medium for the
cementing of firm friendships. X
No small share of the success of the clubs has been due
to the sponsorship of the members of the faculty. The de-
votion of their time and energy has ever been appreciated
by those who really understand.

As a reward for consistent work which results in faithful scholarship. a student auto-
matically becomes one of the honor class when. at the close of his senior year he has an average
of ninety per cent or more for the four years of his high school course.
The only requirement that is needed to become a member of this society. is scholarship.
which is most important in itself. For. to keep such an average each one mus' do his work
well from day to day, so that there will be a steady upward climb. Each must get his own
lessons. for in the end only the work which each one himself can do. counts toward the average
of the grades. This means. that to work to the full capacity. DOI a minute of school life can be
wasted: and during every class period it must be remembered that the duty of each one is to learn
something which will make him J better citizen in the years to come.

It is not only the duty, but the pleasure. of the Big Sister Organization to help the Sopho-
mores to fall in line in F. H. S. Each of the girls has a group of lower classmen over whom
she has particular charge: that is. she must learn to know them herself. and help them to become
acquainted with each other. The Big Sister may do this in any way she chooses, but eventually
it helps to wear off that new feeling which all Sophomores dread. She aids her Little Sisters in
any way possible throughout ihe year, but especially the first few weeks.
Each year the Big Sisters are becoming less and less contented to remain seemingly inactive.
In 1929 they enthusiastically voted to sponsor the annual Girls Mixer. Under the consistent
work of the committees appointed by tlxe president. Thelma White. the Kid Party was a success
No regular minutes of mee ings were kept, The girls discussed their own problems and offered
their own suggestions as solutions. The meetings were held regularly on the Hrst Monday even-

Since Findlay High School needed some form of student government. the Student Council
was formed. A representative was elected by every home room each semester. the representatives
of each preceding semester acting as associate members.
The Council met every other Thursday during the first period in the chemistry recitation
room. Dilferent problems of the school were discussed. the representatives giving the students'
views and Mr. Kinley, the sponsor. giving the facultys ln that way many new ideas and
thoughts were brought out.
The Council ROI only discussed school problems. but thought of and backed different pro-
jects. One was the bringing of Charlie Paddock to lecture to us and another was the school
its aim was not to rule but to help the student body in general by comparing ideas on
different phases of school life.
The ofTice of president was capably Hlled by James Beardsley, during the first semester and
by John Donnell during the second semester. Other officers were Mary Ellen Vdestfall. Jane
Schatzel. Helen King. and Eugene Copeland,

The Blue and Gold chapter of the National Honor Society. organized in nineteen hundred
and twenty-four. is important in Findlay High School. The insignia worn by members is the
national pin. Twenty from the class of '29 were chosen. according to the Constitution. A
council. composed of Miss Mills. Miss Kiefer, Miss Hudnell, Mr. liinley. Mr. Robbins and Mr.
Hutson recommended the students at a faculty meeting.
There are four prime requisites for membership. First, students must be chosen from the
upper third of the class. for scholarship is an important requirement. Service. which must fill
the greater part of a high school life. is the second essential thing. Thirdly. character. the
fundamental thing in any one's life. is to be looked for. As a fourth requirement. the student
must be a leader among his classmates.
After these have been carefully discussed. .1 unanimous vote of the faculty must be taken.
before a student is elected to this society. a thing which is the ambition of so many.

The Senior Commercial Club of Findlay Senior High School had forty-seven members.
The officers of the club were as follows: President, John Hoppenberg: Vice-President. Carl
Barkimer: Secretary and Treasurer. Kathryn Book. The club was extremely fortunate in having
had as its sponsors Miss Hudnell and Miss Fassett.
The aim of the club was to bring before its members the things with which they will be
confronted in the business world, The programs endeavored to give to the members of the club.
through talks and illustrations. a more thorough knowledge of the business world of today.
During the year two speakers. Mr. Howard XVest and Mr. J. P. Sutton. men with business
experience. talked to the club. Both men emphasized the importance of personal appearance.
habits. correct English and the value of education as a whole. It was their purpose to show to
the club that many other things were taken into consideration besides a high school course,
One feature of interest and importance was a play presented by several members of the club.
As is the custom of the Commercial Club. members of the Junior class were welcomed into
our midst before the closing of the year. To them we entrusted the carrying on of the club

The Justamere Club is the one organization of the High School whose aims are entirelv
literary. It is the next oldest club in the school and its programs are among the most interesting.
A president, vice-president, secretary. treasurer. critic and censor comprise the club officers. These
ollices are held respectively by Gerald Nelson. Lucille Yokom. Helen Bair. Martha Hirscher.
Evelyn Hart and Jessie Billstone.
The Halloween meeting was one of particular interest. Weird music served as an introduc-
tion to a review of two of Edgar Allen Poe's stories and an amusing drimatization of the 'Witches
Scene in- Macbeth. The recent meetings have involved a review ol our literary readings of the
year. and our aptitude of spelling. In the usual spelling fashion we have undertaken to recognize
characters and incidents from books. Impromptu speeches on assigned subjects. both amusing and
serious in tone, provided another interesting program. The members have enjoyed the musical
numbers of the years programs. which frequently are an important factor in a club meeting.
The initiation ot the new members ot the club trom the Junior Class is alwavs held late in
the school year. and for the old members. is an unusually interesting and amusing social function
A banquet at the close of the school year is almost a necessary part of the rituals of the club.
The members of the Justamere Club are to be commended for their interest in the advance-
ment of the club. Mr. Dale D. Hutson is the sponsor of the club.

With the clear cut purpose. "to create, maintain. and extend throughout the school and
community high standards of Christian character." the Senior Hi-Y has come to the close of a
memorable year. Separated from the Juniors. who have formed a chapter of their own. the
Senior club was enabled to spend much time in the discussion of personal problems which were
peculiar to Seniors.
Under the leadership of its able president, Robert Moorhead. and the other ofhcers. XValdo
Marvin. and Paul Kirsten. the club has admirably accomplished that which it has set out to do.
The "Be Yourself" Campaign. conducted in February. the Hi-Y Conference at Springfield
on Thanksgiving. the retreat. social meetings. and the picnic were but a few of the high spots
of the successful year.
Probably in no other club is the quality of fellowship so predominant. Many have been
the friendships formed within the membership of the organization and the recollections of the
fraternal affection will always be pleasant.

As Hi-Y principles unfold. they grow more comprehensive. The Junior division of the
Senior Hi-Y Chapter is a result of this expansive program.
XVith many Junior boys as members. the club has carried on the platform set forth by the
stolid upper classmen. They have chosen their own officers and management: they have prek
pared their own programs: they have cooperated with others. This Junior club has accomplished
things-perhaps not directly seen-but all through the year they have built. and that is their
l,ively and often heated discussions formed most of the year's work. Their constructive
forums have made each member more intelligent with himself and others. Toward the last
of the year they employed the noble round-table idea to top off good fellowship. Scattered
social meetings and bean feeds have balanced their program. The sun of l920 sets on a worthy
group of youths.
The success of the organization is in a great part due to the officers. council members. and
the sponsor. Mr. Miller. The officers were James Clark. president: John Donnell. vice-president:
James Beardsley. secretarv: Eugene Copeland, treasurer. The council members were Charles

This year the Sophomore Hi-Y was opened to all sopho-more boys. The members were
divided into two divisions. Mr. John Lehman. Boy's XVork Secretary of the Y. M. C. A.. took
charge of the first division. and Mr, Ralph Scott. secretary of the Y. M. C. A.. the second. These
two divisions have met separately throughout the entire year. Both divisions sent delegates to
the Older Boy's Conference at Springfield. Many debatable questions were brought back by the
delegates who gave reports in their discussions at the conference.
The first division decided that the regular meetings every Tuesday mornnig during the nrst
period did not furnish ample time to discuss the topics brought up. Therefore. they arranged to
meet on Tuesday nights. Some of the topics discussed by this division were: "How Should XVe
Spend Our Sundays." "The Value of Athletics in Comparison with School VVorlc." and "XVhv
We Are in the Hi-Y."
The oficers of this division are Stephen Stuntz. president: Russell Hendricks. viceepresidentz
and Robert McIntosh. secretary and treasurer.
The officers of the second division are Alfred Bloomingdale. president: Glenn Love. vice
president: Scott Elsea. secretary: and Gerald Fenimore. treasurer. Some of the topics discussed
by this group were 'iWhat Prayer Does for One." 'How to Choose My Lifes NVork. and
"The Value of the Hi-Y."

Once a month the present day followers of Demosthenes met in the art room. and there, sur-
rounded by works of art, sought to improve their powers of speech.
There was a time when athletics was the main activity of a school. but that dav is past.
More and more attention is being given to debates and musical contests. lt was with the purpose
ot 'encouraging and promoting debates that the Debate Club was organized several vears ago.
This year under the direction of the sponsors. Mr. Martin and Mr. Miller. a debate manual
was studied. This study was alternated with debates. thus putting into use the knowledge
gained from the manual.
The membership was rather small this vear. but that was an advantage: it gave more of the
members an opporiunitv to participate in the programs.
The club had as president XVavne Althaus. Assisting him were Evelyn Hart. Bernice
Sehoonover. and Harlow Haley.

Many were the sorrows of the members of Caesar's army for 1928-29 when it was an-
nounced that only the Junior and Senior Latin students were invited to the outdoor picnic which
was sponsored by the Classical Club. Games. eats. and the great open spacesf No one could
have asked for a more delightful time. But wait. the Sophomores were to have their chance.
Initiations-the name itself presents horrors! Burlap sacks took the place of silk dresses and
many were the tri-cycles and doll buggies brought by the poor sufferers. But after that mosl
miserable night, they too were members of our loyal group.
The aims of the Classical Club are: first. to create and further among the siudents of the
Latin department the desire for knowledge of the customs. lives of men. art. literature. and re-
ligion of the classical period: second. to extend this desire to the general public: and third. to
create bonds of friendship among the students of the Latin department.
The club gave baskets to the poor of the city both at Thanksgiving and Chris'mas.

The end of this school year will mark the end of one of the most successful and enjoyable
ever known by "Le Cerclc Francais." Under the able leadership of our president, Robert Bow-
man and the other oflficers, Mary Snyder and Loretta Crippcn. the programs presented at our
monthly meetings this year have been unusually interesting and prontable.
XVe arrive at the close of this club year with a feeling that we have accomplished our pur-
pose which has been to promote and stimulate interest in the study of the French language. the
history of France. her people and their cus oms. NVe feel that our time has been well spent in
club work for not only have we perfected our spoken French but we have also become better
acquainted with French literature.
Much credit is due Miss Vvliseley whose untiring efforts were responsible for the record of
the past year which shines as another bright page in the club's history.
Thus. as the school year closes. the members of this organization are reluctant to think
that they cease to be members of this club. but they will. however. alw'ays cherish memories of
the pleasant times enjoyed.

Precious baggage is often found in small parcels. Although the membership of El Circulo
Castellano was much smaller than in former years, yet each individual felt as though he had a
greater responsibility to hold. President Charles Bish has proved very successful in leading the
club this year. During his absence De Wolf Schatzel. the vice-president of the club took charge
showing an equal degree of skill. Secretary James Neeley kept the books in excellent condition
throughout the year. John Hoppenberg. as treasurer. held a tight grip on the money bags.
Arthur Mathias, chairman of the pin committee, proved very successful in getting for us a verV
attractive and significant emblem. Franklin Sargent. chairman of the program committee. was
tireless in his efforts in preparing good programs.
We discussed the Royal Family, and studied the provinces of Spain, and also the Conquest
of Spain by the Moors.
The purpose of the Spanish Club was to increase the interes' in the Spanish language and its
uses. YVe also studied the South American countries and other Spanish speaking countries. Al-
together the club has proved very interesting and profitable to i's members.
Much of the success of the club is due to the able leadership of its sponsor, Miss Lois Little-
ton. Her zeal and untiring interest for the club is deeply appreciated by its members.

The Varsity "l'5" Club is composed of high schaol boys who have won a major letter in
athletics or some other form of activity.
Y The chief purpose of the club is to promote good sportsmanship and to uphold the honor
of the letter as a reward for service rendered to our school.
The club met every other Friday. After all business was taken care of. a report was given
by some member dealing with the origin and growth of some sport. Occasionally. different prob-
lems which might arise in an athletic contest. were discussed. V
Each year the club holds an initiation for new members. This occasion is looked forward
to and long remembered by every new candidate.
The president of the club, Vkfaldo Marvin. discharged his duties in a very creditable manner.

During the past year a new club' has been organized in the high school. Its name is the
Findlay High School Radio Club. The organization of the club grew out of a desire of many of
the students of the high school to delve into the mysteries of radio. The purposes of the club
are many. Some of these are to interest more students in amateur radio and to get them to be-
come licensed amateurs. The meetings included code practice, a study and discussion of trans-
mitters and receivers. The members were encouraged to learn the code. build a transmitter and
receiver and apply for license.
Another project for the club was to build a station for the high school and to get it on the
air. This was done and the station call is W8ARM.
Already four members of the club are licensed amateurs. They are Don Daymon, NVSADS:
XVilliam Beall. VVSBLVJ: Harold Flugga. NVSCK: G. G. Starr, WSARM. Others have applied
and will get their licenses in the near future.
The president of the club is Harold Flugga and its sponsor is G. Ci. Starr.
MUSIC AND DRAMATICS
A continuous course of plays. operettas. eisteddfods,
debates, runs through the years of high school life. en-
livening the otherwise monotonous days with their hustle
and bustle, their color, and their busy preparation. All is
not glitter and glamour in the lives of those engaged in
the events, for the pleasure gained from them is balanced
with days and nights of feverish labor that the activity
may be characterized by success.
Who of the graduating class will ever forget the tense
moments of the eisteddfods, from which we have ever
emerged victorious, or who can lose the recollection of
those beautifully staged plays and operettas, high spots of
the never-to-be-forgotten high school days?

The A Capella Choir originated many centuries ago. in the Middle Ages, when the singing
in the churches was sung by a choir entirely unaccompanied. This custom has been carried down
through the ages. and this year saw it fully developed in th: midst of our school.
This group, composed of some of the best singers in the school. and led by Mr. Morgan. has
furnished the inspiring music in our Chapel services. They have had the distinction of singing
in several Findlay churches. and on several Saturday evenings before Christmas. On Christmas
Eve they sang Christmas Carols in front of our court-house.
GIRL RESERVES---fGonrinued from page 725
Among the numerous active organizations of Findlay High, the Girl Reserves stand out.
NVith the money earned through the magazine campaign. public services such as giving food to
the needy. candy to the inmates of the Old Folles Home. and chain letters and flowers to the
shut-ins were rendered.
Many uplifting programs were held throughout the year. "Joy of Living." "l.ove." and
"Resolutions" were among the discussed topics. Socially the girls enjoyed a Valentine Party
and a Musical Tea. given in honor of the mothers.
The club owes much to its president. Margaret Schwyn, who faithfully and successfully
guided it through the year. The hearty cooperation of all committees and the steady support of
the faculty advisors. Miss Mills. Miss Vtfiseley, and Miss Keifer has been greatly appreciated.
Other ofhcers of the organization were Ruth Myers, Twila Saul. and Evelyn Baker.
To the Senior members are extended a sincere farewell and a hope that they will ever re-
main faithful to the Girl Reserve principles. They, in turn, bid all to be true to the organiza-
tion and to continue its benencial works.

leen Dungannon who refuses to allow her to marry Kenrteth XVayne because of a prejudice he has
had against Kenneth's father, Jeremiah Wayne. Dr. Owen Harding. the part so ably filled by
Wayne Althaus, is a friend of John Carteret who feels that Kathleen should be allowed to marry
The role of Moonyeen Clare and Kathleen was taken by Treva Chambers and was mas.er-
fully portrayed. Moonyeen, the aunt of Kathleen. was killed on her wedding night by Jeremiah
Wayne, which was played by Richard Betts. This is the prejudice which is held by Carteret
against Kenneth Wayne, also skillfully played by Richard Betts.
Of lesser importance. but with equally as perfect acting. are Ellen. the housekeeper. played
by Jessie Billstone: Mary Clare, sister of Moonyeen. portrayed by Georgia Wisterman: and XVillie
Ainley, played by Fred Miller.
Much credit for the success of the presentation is due Joe Biery. stage manager, and Donald
Ursehalitz and Arthur Bond, business manager and assistant.

This year as never before has our school come through with flying colors in debating. At
the beginning of the school year two new teachers. Mr, Martin and Mr. Miller. went nobly about
the task of obtaining the best material possible by which Findlay could be represented. They
chose a squad of ten and one of the outstanding characteristics, of this squad was the fact that
everyone of these boys and girls had wonderful ability and every one on the squad worked very
hard to win the debates.
The debated point was: "Resolved, that the United States should cease to protect by armed
force capital invested in foreign lands except after a formal declaration of war."
The first debate was a duel between Tiffin and Findlay. Cut affirmative team went to
Tifhn. The adjudicator of the debate there was Mr. ff. NV. Miller. of XVooster. He compliment-
ed the debaters on their rebuttal speeches He also pointed otit their ability to thinlx on their
The second debate was a triangle with Fostoria and Lima Central, Our affirmative team
met liosioria here and defeated them. The debate here was adjudicated by Professor Hopkins. of

The question was one of the most difficult that high school students have ever attempted
and the team displayed their mastery of the situation to the utmost,
The debated point Was: "Resolved, that the United States should cease to protect by armed
force capital invested in foreign lands except after a formal declaration of War."
The first debate was a dual between Tiffin and Findlay. Our negative team debated here.
Mr. Marslaman from Ohio Wesleyan adjudicated the debate here and he stressed the debater's ease
of delivery and their ability to speak extemporaneously.
The second debate was a triangle with Fostoria and Lima Central, At Lima the adjudica-
tor Was Mr. Griffith of Ohio Wesleyan. He brought out the extraordinary ability of the Findlay
speakers to refute the former speakers' arguments at the first of the speech.
The third debate was dual with Libbey High School of Toledo. The negative team met
the Toledo affirmative team here. The adjudicator here was Mr. Diem from Ghio VJesleyan.
This year we are losing three people who helped Win these debates and seven are remaining
Wi'h us upon whom we can build a team next year. Under the direction of our two able debate
coaches. Mr. Martin and Mr. Miller, we feel certain that we will come through just as victorious
in next year's undertaking.
Let us give our debate team credit for a most successful year in debate. They have brought
us success in every debate. May they continue the good work in the future.
The Ninth Annual Vocal Eisteddfod was held in the High School Auditorium, April 12.
Findlay's number of points at the end were 125, and Lima was second with 100. This was the
sixth time in succession that Findlay has won first place. Our success was due largely to the
unceasing efforts of Mr. Morgan, of whose work every one is proud.
Findlay's mixed chorus and girls glee club took first place and the boy's glee club took

DEBATE MUSIC CONTESTANTS
The Debate-Music Contests of Findlay High School are always interesting, and this year
proved no -exception. ln the triangle with Fostoria and Lima Central, our music contestant
ranked higher than our out-of-town opponents.
Mixed trio-Ruth Andrus. Corrine Jacobs, Ned Franks. Vera Traxler, Margaret Schwyn,
Boy's solo--John Hoppenberg. Maynard Ritter.
Piano solo-Mary Ellen Westfall. Jane Schatzel.
In Vergil and Homer we read the most interesting accounts of
games and contests of strength and skill. In the ancient Olympic games
the flower of youth of the day vied with one another for athletic
supremacy. Through the ages, the classic quotation, "Mens sana in
corpore sano," has been the watchword of youth.
To promote clean sportsmanship, clean playing and clean living,
never has anything been found to excel sports. In that field of activity
boys are made into men, girls into women. It is said that beauty of
feature is only the result of the physical perfection of the body. The
radiance of personality, character, ability, and beauty is all-powerful
in this modern world of ours.
The philosophy and optimism of the teams are qualities worth
careful cultivation in others. Never allowing loss to cause discourage-
ment, they have worked together in that spirit of "never say die" which
cannot suffer defeat.
May the teams of next year bring home more trophies and may
our departing players carry with them pleasant memories of their high

With the waving of pennants, the martial music of the
band, the enthusiasm of the cheering section. the gay color
of the autumn days, we launched our 1928 football sea-
son. It was destined for more than one reason, to be one
indelibly imprinted on our memories.
The dedication of the magnificent stadium was one of
the high spots of the year. It marked a milestone in the
history of the school for it was initiating the service of a
gift to be used by the school for many years to come.
At the close of the year. track and baseball proved
acceptable substitutes for a tougher -game of football. Un-
der the guidance of our coaches, an excellent showing in
both was made.
May we here express our gratitude and appreciation
for the able leadership of the coaches. in whose hands lay
the giant responsibility of moulding our teams.
First tseatedl-H. Hartman, XV. Hosler. C. Hendricks, I. Ciardiner. C. Bish. C. Gunn, D.
Corbin, R. Moorhead, C. Brandman.
Second--Mr. Knode. Mr. Oliphant, NV. Cornwell. J. Neeley. XV. Deeds, W. Marvin, N.
Baldwin, XV. Caldwell. E. Ludwig.
Third-W. Kuhlman, H, Firestone. R. Beltz, R. Rice. R. Hendricks. C. Boulis. J. Mitchell.
J. Spangler. J. Childs, C. Lafferty. S. Stuntz.
Coach Knode did not know what to expect when football practice was called early in the
fall. but it developed that he need not have any worries because the boys responded to the call with
great enthusiasm. As soon as practice got under way. the team began to develop rapidly. and
by the date of the Iirst game, was ready to play good football. As the season advanced. the team
improved and developed into a first class team.
Although we did not win all the games played. we won 60 per cent of them and went
through the season with Findlay High's customary good sportsmanship and colors flying. The
teamwork and good-fellowship displayed were marvelous and several times a quick thought on
the part of one man plus the teamwork of the others enabled the team to gain another victory.
Altogether it may be summed up that th: team of old Findlay High School has again gone
through another fine and successful football season. The schedule and results of the seasons games
are as follows:
F. H. S. Z5 Upper Sandusky 7 F. H. S. 7 Middletown l-P
F. H. S. O Bowling Cireen Z6 F. H. S. 6 Bucyrus 14
F. H. S. Zl Marion 18 F. H. S. Z0 Lima Central 14

CAPTAIN CHARLES GUNN-End
"Gunny" was the hard-hitting. fast-lighting captain who led his team through .1 most
successful season. The opponents that got around his end were few and far between as they
all met the same uncomfortable reception. We all wish "Gunny" good luck in any future games
that he may play.
He was little but mighty, and so mighty that he was called "I-lerculesf' Although Herk
was the lightest man on the team. he had the punch and push to go through almost any line.
After the first few plays in a game, the opposing team would always set him down as a great
"Jim" certainly 'was an asset to the team this year. When "Jim" came into the game. the
other team stopped storming his side of the held as it was impossible to get by him. Neeley
certainly deserved his letter as he had already spent two years on the "sub line."
. . .,
fuc -f -L'
"VJhitey" was practically thc standby of the team, He could play a wonderful defensive
game and could plunge to a goal whenever a few yards were needed. This was Marvin's third
year on the team and he has carried himself through every year like a veteran and a good soldier.
"Charlie" was one of the smallest but undoubtedly the fastest man on the team. Vkfhen-
ever a long run was wanted. they gave the ball to Bish. and. somehow he always got the pigskin
to the other end of the field. lf ever "Charlie" had an open field before him. it always seemed
as though he suddenly got some wings, and down the field he would fly.
"Bob" deserves much credit for preventing a possible setback at the hands of our opponents
at several times. He played a good, hard. defensive game and a wonderful offensive game. When-
ever an opposing player started out. he generally encountered "Bob", and was stopped.
