Here in her walls mental and physical growth has taken place. We have been taught about the social, economic, and political problems ot the world and how to cope with them. Our teachers, whom we are very proud ot, have strived to insert in us traits of character, especially those ot leadership, initiative, integrity and ambition. These particular traits, we will need very much when we step out into the world which is now opening to us. For many ot us it will be college after we graduate and for others not, but wherever our path may lead we will not always be under the watchful wing of teachers and parents. Our next move will not be planned for us as it has been in the past. This wonderful environment which we have had and our education in a tree democratic country will help us to be upholding and substantial citizens and builders of America. This Yearbook will be a means of looking back at our ioys and sorrows which also go into making mature people, and will be o permanent record of our years at Firelands High.

In the fall of 1954, boys and girls from Bownhelm, Cam- den, Henrietta and Birmingham schools, were brought together under one roof to be made into one group-the students of Firelands High School. Part of this group was the Sophomore class, the first Sophomore class in the history of Firelands High. Rivalry was a high-pitched ring in the ears of the students who were wary, at first, of mixing with those from "other" schools. No one dared to be the first to be named "traitor" to his original classmates by associating with his new classmates, "outsiders" from those "other" schools. But soon, however, the high-pitched inaudible hum, which by now has died out com- pletely. lt really didn't take too long to find out that kids from other schools were iust as nice-well almost as nice and as friendly as the guys and gals from our previous schools. lt's better to "ioin'em" than "fight'em," so finally as a group-indivis- ible, fated to graduate in i957, we pushed our ego's aside, and like a quiver full of arrows sent into learned flight by the bows of knowledge held in the able hands of the archer-faculty, we sped on our way towards our goals. As we went merrily on our way we felt the guiding hand of Mr. Matheny toward a greater degree of conformity than we had ever known before. Getting acquainted was made easier by "All-school" parties, participation in athletic and music or- ganizations, and by that stern necessity-classes. The Sophomore year sped by and before we knew it, it was spring, summer, then fall and back to- school again. Finally! Juniors! Upperclassmenl We made it! That was a real great year. Why with Bill Roberts trying to decide on which girl to go steady with and Anne Husted trying to make up her mind as to which boy was going to take her to the Prom, and Dubick and Bettcher always goofing off, the Junior class had quite a hectic year. Then came the final year of toil. Our. senior year was one "not-to-be-forgotten" experience. Indeed we mean "experience," Of course, the highlight of the year for all seniors, is the senior trip to Washington, D.C. Any senior will tell you that the trip is really worthwhile. We truly enjoyed the prom given us by the junio-rs. The good food, beautiful decorations, and entertainment under the dimmed lights of the auditorium, made it a pleasant evening which we will never forget. lAnne Husted didn't have much trouble deciding who she was going to the prom with this timeri Well, we've finally reached our goal, the summation of twelve years of readin', writin' and 'rithmetic. We'll remember always-graduation day. George Dubick ,V sig if W' - . U . , . . ,. ......,,..., tit wivvzsfiw tr is 'Vs sv fr'-Sb X, 5 S.. ' 'Ts .'.- ,Pri lo' it . K . ge! F. A ' A ,f ix 5 I.

Ogfaow Our 58's had quite a year! Here a smile and there a tear. John Wanyek's loss in sad October Brought all of us some thoughts most sober. Mid lowered lights at our fall dances, We even started new romances! We showed our skill with voice and toots, And all the players heard our "roots" With tights galore o'er proms and plays, We still worked through to brighter days. Among the things we tried to sell Were pop and cards and caps as well. Next year we'll have to show some zip To get the cash for our big trip! Surely best and always great, We're the Class of '58.

Setting our sites on the Prom next year, we the Sophomore Class of "59" went at our money making projects with vigor and vitality. Along with our class othcers, which are listed above, we rounded off our elections at the beginning of the year by assigning Janet Markworth, Karen Nabakowski and Dave Odom as Student Council representatives. Our first real endevor to make money was F.H.S. letters, then we sold popcorn at all the home basketball games. After one of the home games we sponsored a "sock hop" as a means of building up our treasury. At Christmas time and Valentines Day we proved ourselves to be good salesmen by making a success to selling candy. Toward the end of the year we had a bake sale. For our own pleasure we had a class party on May 8. Mrs. Fowler, M .1 rs. Dillion and Mr. Miller guided us through the year as class advisors . 5 1 S S 3 .s if s is s me .....s.. vis 2 Q S S Km S ......... ...

The first year of high! We were all a bit nervous at first. Would the upperclassmen :im their superiority? Would we get our schedules mixed up? These questions, and others bothered us for awhile, but after' a week things began to run smoothly. We had our first class meeting and the officers were elected. Ruth Alicie We got the ball rolling by selling potato' chips at basketball games and from there the treasury built up steadily. We had a sock dance, a skating party and we hope to have some other activities be- fore the year is over. Our student council members are Joyce Kneisel, Bill Horvath, and Karen Born. K rt Three members of our class were the Reserve Cheerleaders. They were Joyce Kneisel, Melanie Shimer and Karen Born. Quite a few freshmen had nice exhibits at the Science Fair this year. 1 1 We also had representation in almost all of the sports activities.

During the 56-57 school year the Student Council, under the leadership ot President Phil Howe, sponsored "toys tor tots," school parties, organized noon's recreations, gave a religious Christian program, and sold school supplies for the student body. As a means of improving our school government and habits, we attended other schools in groups of four. Through collecting tax stamps the council added to their treasury and in so doing laid a border foundation for next year. Each member ot the Student Council considered it a great honor to be part of such an organization. ll Cl x 'J TV Left to right: Bill Horvath, David Odom, Elenore Reising, Mike Polansky, Nancy Lamvermeyer, Phil Howe, Gwen Brumby, Larry Bettcher, Dorothy Becker, Karen Born, Joyce Kneisel, Janet Markworth, Karen Nabakow- 0 BACK Row, Left to right Larry Bettchen, Mike Polan sky. lst ROW: Gwen Brumby Phil Howe, Nancy Lamver meyer. Mrs. Smith 744 een The members of the "Firelands Flash" staFl, under the able and patient direction of Mrs. Smith, endeavored to bring to the Firelands area students, the monthly accumu- lation of local school news. Alert news coverage and interesting sports happenings, along with the humurous "Key-Hole, Gossip" column, enlivened the pages of the Firelands High paper. Editorials from both the Flash Editor and school faculty, plus the comings and goings ot Firelands students helped to round-out the news coverage. Few, if any of the staft members, will ever become newspaper reporters or editors, but nevertheless, all the staft enioyed their venture in to the realm of copy, newsprint, and bylines.

Fecha-'ab 7 ' ' Under the skillful guidance of Mr. Seiple, Firelands High carries out a very effective driver's train- ing program. Besides learning how to drive, the course includes learning the Ohio traffic laws, skillful manuvers, parallel parking, and learning all the parts of the automobile. It is a one semester course requiring each student to drive a specified number of hours before passing the course. This year, as an added feature, the Drivers' Training Department took a survey to determine how effective the drivers' training program is. The results showed that those people who had had the driver's training course had been envolved in far fewer accidents and had been guilty of fewer traffic viola- tions and citations. Also, the department conducted a safety check on the car that the students and teachers drove to school. For the safety of our country and our comunity the driver's training program will continue to be carried out, for we firmly believe that the best way for our young people to learn to drive is through the skillful guidance of a trained instructor. 9.'!'X T' 41 ' 1""-'-RXXY. .

Under the skilled supervision ot Mrs. Linder, many hours were spent in choosing a play which was suitable. The hardest but most enioyable, part of the play was the rehearsing, after school, at night and even on the Christmas Holidays. There was many a hard hour put into the play and without the understand- ing and consideration of Mrs. Linder, our "Play" could never have been the big success that it was.

Hard at work. 'famed Staff The Yearbook Staff will see the actual finished pro- duct with a sigh of relief and an inner feeling of satis- faction. After months of looking at scraps of material and dismantled pages, it will be hard to believe that all that, went into the Torch. Assembling a yearbook is a great task and requires long hours compiled with ingenuity, patience, and a wanton for achievement. Brian Freas and a force of Seniors started the campaign for ads early and in so doing covered a large area. Last years yearbook was a real challange and we set out to make one iust as good or better than the previous Torch. We have strived to make this book one composed of senior co-operative efforts and consequently a less for- mal, but still informative book. The Yearbook StaH sin- cerely hopes that you like this book. wg--fa STANDING, Left to Right: Sonia Manual, Anne Husted, Esther Cadman, Nancy Lamvermeyer, Dorothy Kasper, Carol Mathes, Emogene Schlechter, Bill Roberts, Jim Miller, Phil Howe, Bob Snider, Jim Rothgery.

Every week they build their shows around a theme and carry it out in their music and formations. This year the band entered in the County Music Contest at Clearview by making up ensem- bles of members ofthe band. At community activities the band par- ticipated by playing both popular and classical music. As an added activity they plan to play for other schools. Under the direction ot Mr. Edward Smith, the band practices three times a week. We at Fire- lands are becoming increasingly prouder ot the band and acknowledge the great strides they have taken.
