ADVERTISING ............. 2 Dedication The Journalism Class wishes to dedicate this Torch to the students of Firelands High School. A school is not just a building, teachers, students, activities, athletics, or even ideals, but all go together to make a school. And you, as students have played a large part in setting the standards and building the reputation of Firelands. To most of you this was just another school year, a step nearer graduation, but to the graduating class this year was a culmination, and like a short story the conclusion fol- lowed quickly the climax. To all of you, we dedicate this book with the hope that in years to come it will help you to recall some of the happiest and most carefree days of your life.

As pebbles are smoothed on the rolling beach. -Trowbridge.. Here at Firelands the underclassmen made their presence felt not only in the large number in classes but also in their many activities. During the basketball season each class assisted with concessions. The sophomores sold popcorn and the freshmen sold potato chips, both of which helped to increase the want for a cold drink which the juniors had on hand. To aid in the raising of funds for the Junior-Senior Dinner-Dance the juniors sold Christmas cards and sponsored a radio show. The Dinner- Dance which was held in May was a wonderful success. The sophomores, with an eye to the future, worked on their treasury while having fun at skating parties at the Elyria Roll Arena and a class party at school. One of their more lucrative money projects was the sale of Mary Lee Candies. The freshmen, being greater in number and new at F. H. S., learned their ways about and are looking forward to being sophisticated sopho- mores. The freshmen sold FHS letters that could be worn on school clothing. Bob Baumann sells Stanley Brumby potato chips-Don Lewis and John Born see popcorn-Freshmen enjoy pop-Tom Currier clean up pop bottles-Marilyn Born spins Marvin Fannin-Marvin, sheis Margaret Parker. ,.
