Fifty years, yes, it seems like a long time, doesnit it? Do you remember
these things?-the horse to the horseless carriage, called the automobile-the
heavier than air machine called the airplaneg now, one goes as fast as sound-
the streamline trains-a World War I with Germany-the day of the flappers, the
age that was going to the dogs four parentsl-a new type of music,-Jazz, Boogie
Woogie-please don't forget the torch songs-the silent movies, and then, ones
that even talked!!-now technicolor. The age of the light bulb-many men be-
came famous-and many did not recover from the depression of the "thirties',-
Roosevelt's "New Deal"-Pearl Harbor-a second World War with Gennany-
which we cannot pass over lightly-the atomic and hydrogen bomb. With mod-
ern Medical Science the life span seems to be growing longer-at least that is
something to look forward to.
These are a few of the things that have happened in the past fifty years. We,
the class of 1950 have not added much to the past years but watch us in the next
fifty. Our Grandfathers, Crandmothers, Fathers and Mothers have helped us in
this fifty years of progress. We are going to .try to do our best with the next

As I was sitting in my easy chair on my estate in Panama watching my new television set,
I noticed that my home town was being shown.
One of the Hrst things I saw was the High School. They were having Chapel and one of
my former school friends, Marjorie Harris was giving a demonstration with her four children
on shorthand and typing. They had set a new worldis record for s eed. The children had
been taught by their mother. Also on the same program was Linda McEntee who gave a
beautiful saxophone solo. She had studied for five years in Vienna and was a noted authoritly
on band music. After the program the coach, Harold Waller, spoke a few words. Coach Wa -
ler's team had won the National Basketball Tournament last year. Harold had lost only two
games in the last two years-each time to Alger.
Then the scene changed to a few miles outside Forest where a new hospital had just
been built. The chief surgeon was Ann Holtzmuller who had just retumed from a series of
lectures in Europe. The hospital had been donated by one of Forest's citizens. Ann had
named the hospital "Bi.llvue,' after its donor. Also working there as head nurse was the for-
mer Ruth Simpson. She was now the Mrs. Richard Wilson the second. Incidently, she also
had two lovely children, Ruth and Richard the third.
The next place of interest shown was the country home of Mr. and Mrs. Paul McKinleyg
Mrs. McKinley is the former Phyllis Kneisley. There were 11 very cute curly haired boys in
the yard playing football. Paul and Phyllis had gained national recognition for having the
youngest professional football team in the country and also because the whole team was com-
posed of their own sons.
The farm next to their home was owned by Thomas Jones and Norman Clinger who
raised Holshires, a new type of animal bred by Tom and Norman from Holstein sand Berk-
shires. They had gained their knowledge of animal husbandry while taking agriculture in For-
est High School.
Then the scene moved back to town where a kindergarten class was visited. The teacher
was the former Mildred Ann Schott. Most of the class consisted of children of her former
classmates. Three of the children were her own. They were triplets who were well known for
their dancing abilit . They had been taught by their mother who had been a professional
dancer in her youth. Another student was Audrey Tracy's daughter. Audrey was in Washing-
ton at the time where she was head of the Home Economics Bureau of the United States. She
had just perfected a new method for making pork taste like beef.
Next to the Kindergarten Class building was a laundry service which was managed by
Eileen Staley and Edith Myers. Their specialty was washing diapers. As a sideline they had a
class on "The Care of Infantsf, Eileen and Edith were both experts on the care of babies and
eople came from miles around to attend their classes. Their own children were the best be-
llaved children in Mildred Ann's kindergarten class.
Next the program visited the largest mortuary in the world. As I wasn't interested in
mortuarys I started to tum the dial when I suddenly noticed the proprietors of the mortuary.
They were Ardo Hammond and Bemard George. After I recovered from this shock I dis-
covered that they had bought joe Shields out and renamed the home "Peaceful Manor." They
also had erfected a new embalming fluid which could be used for man or beast. Their side-
line was fhnerals for the pets of people who were too tenderhearted, to just bury their pets in
the cold, cold ground.
They also owned a cemetery which was managed by their classmate Murray Essinger.
The motto of the cemetery is "Let Sleeping Dogs Lief, Murray had developed a new method
for cutting grass. He employed the contour type cutting, that is, he was going around in cir-
cles, which he had leamed in his agriculture class.
Next they visited a new restaurant which had just been built b Burl Hemmerly, the
great architect. It was designed to look like Tarzan's tree house. Burly always liked Tarzan,
even going so far as to imitate him while he was in high school. Burl's imitations weren't al-
ways successful, though. The restaurant was owned by Rex Swanson. He advertised his res-
taurant as selling the strongest milkshakes in the world. He had a yen for strong drinks ever
since his high school days. He employed Iohn Kalb as his jerk-soda 'erk, that is. john is able
to make mi kshakes, faster, thicker, and better than anyone else in the country.
After the restaurant scene, jim Marshall, the famous psychiatrist, was interviewed. jim
had graduated from Yale University with several degrees and now had a large practice. His
specialty is women-patients.
Royce Fewell, a cartoonist of some note, was also interviewed. Royce had gotten his
start W en he drew cartoons for the "Leaves of '50"'. His comicstrip was named "Love 'Em
and Leave 'Em", patterned after his own life.
The next place visited was the law office of Hemmerly and Oates. Alice and Donna spe-
cialized in divorce cases QDonna usually taking the men clients.j Alice is also noted for her
speeches. At the moment she is running for Senator. Donna is her campaign manager. They
s ould get the votes of all the men, anyway.
The "Two fs Boarding House" was shown next and the proprietors were Joyce Spoon
and jane Green. They served meals and were known the world over for their won erful corned
beef hash. Conlidentially, they said that all they had to do was open a can of "Armour's
comed beef hash", heat it, and serve it. The poor suckers never knew the difference.
The next place of note was Tong's Ping Pong Lounge. Mary Ellen had felt sorry for the
girls of Forest because they had no place for recreation so she had built a ping pong room,
trim somelwhat like the pool room of the boys. Mary Ellen is also the ping pong c ampion of
e worl .
Next to Mary Ellen's recreation room was the largest garage in Forest, bmade entirely of
glass. It was owned by Marilyn Derringer, the former Marillyn Harford., The garage spe-
cialized in fixing lights and other accessories for cars. Marilyn had gained her knowledge for
fixing lights from her husband. Also, Marilyn thought, since she always had to be fixing her
husband's lights she might as well make money fixing other peoples.
Marilyn's friend and neighbor, Dolly Thacker, former Dolly Snider, owned the theater in
Iimorest. Every Saturday afternoon she showed all cartoons for her husband and the children of
t e town.
The last person shown on the program was Barbara Cooper who, as a singer, had enjoyed
success in Hollywood. She was now singing a commercial for Wheaties on the radio. The com-
mercial went like this:
"How mild, how mild, how mild can a cereal be
Less scratchy, less harsh on the throat
La lee lee, la lee lee
So step up to the counter and say,
Gimmie a pack of Wheaties please."
With that note I tum off my television set and say-Good-bye.

During the football season of 1949, the Forest Rangers were successful in winning seven
of the nine scheduled games.
Of the group of thirty boys who reported for practice, there were five lettermen from last
year's squad. Nine members were seniors.
After four weeks of stiff practice, the Rangers were ready for the Preview. The team
journeyed to Upper Sandusky where they were to play Richwood. Even though the Richwood
team had large boys, the Rangers looked like a capable team, and came out on top with a 6-0
September 16, Forest played Elida. Elida usually has a good team, and did have this year.
They were able to keep the Rangers from scoring in the first half. The Rangers scored in the
third quarter and the extra point was good. Elida came back with a touchdown, but the extra
point was blocked. Forest, scoring again in the last quarter, made it a safe 14-6 victory.
September 23, Forest played at Pandora. lt was raining at the beginning of the game and
the ball was slippery. However, the Rangers scored once in the first quarter, twice in the
second quarter, and once more in the third. The final score was 20-0 in Forest's favor.
September 30, Forest played at Delphos. The 14-0 lead at the half-time proved that the
Rangers were improving rapidly. The Rangers scored three more times, while Delphos scored
only once. Forest won 34-6.
October 7, Forest played Kenton in a non--league game. Kenton, being a grade A school,
had more and larger boys. Three of the Ranger's first stringers were hurt in this game. For-
est was ahead 7-6 at the halftime. The Rangers, in the lead and willing to pay the price,
scored again in the third quarter to win the game 14-6. This was the first time Forest had
beaten Kenton since 1938.
October 14, Forest played at Lafayette. Due to injuries from the Kenton game, Forest was
somewhat weakened. Lafayette. being a weak team, didnit offer much resistance and Forest
won again 20-0.
October 21, Forest played Columbus Grove. Columbus Grove, having a fine offense, was
outscored at the halftime 12-0, but scored 12 points in the last half. Forest was very happy to
win this game 19-12, as this was the Homecoming game. The Queen, Donna Mae Oates, and
her attendants, Marilyn Harford and Phyllis Kneisley, were honored at the halftime. A dance
was held following the game.
October-27, Forest played Spencerville. Spencerville was able to score 13 points against
F orest's 20 in the first half. Forest kept their lead and won 47-25. This was Dad,s night.
November 4, Forest played Ada in a non-league game. Ada is very close to being a grade
A school. This was a very stormy night and the Rangers were not willing to pay the price of a
few bumps and bruises in order to win the game. The score was 20-50 in Ada's favor.
November 11, Forest played at Shawnee. Shawnee, the only team standing between Forest
and the championship, had a very fast backiield. Forest trailed at the halftime 19-6 and 44-6
at the end of the fourth period. Forest dropped down to receive second place honors.

The Forest High School Band was an organization of forty-eight members, Hve twirlers
and two Hag bearers.
The band played at various activities during the summer. Some of these were: The Le-
gion Jamboree, Arlington Homecoming, and the Lions Club Street Fair and Parade. Other
outside appearances were at Upper Sandusky during the Wyandot County Fair and at Ken-
ton for the Hardin County Fair.
The band plaiyed at the football preview at Upper Sandusky along with the bands from
Kenton, Richwoo and Upper Sandusky. Our opponent for the evening was Richwood. The
band formed for this evening a HI, R, and an F.
The band became a very activeipart of every football game. They played The Star Span-
gled Banner before every game an did various formations at halftime.
Our first game was with Elida and it was a home game. The band formed a football
which was kicked by the head majorette and then they broke into a ,49 WIN, and for Elida
they formed an E. Their last formation was an F. for Forest.
The band then traveled to Pandora and performed at the halftime. Their formations for
the night were a football, '49 WIN, P for Pandora, and F for Forest.
The next game was with Kenton. The band wanted to look sharp that night and to help,
their new uniforms. arrived before the halftime appearance. For this night the band had "Tra-
vel" as their theme. The formations were a bicycle, an automobile, and a locomotive which
had smoke coming out of the smoke stack and its pistons and wheels were moving. The band
also formed a K for Kenton and an F for Forest.
We were invited to come to a Findlay College game on October 8. We gladly accepted
and our formations for the evening were a bicycle, an automobile, and a locomotive.
Columbus Grove was the next game of the season and it was also the Homecoming game.
The band's formations were a clock, a crown into which the queen and her attendants were
taken and presented to the large crowd, and a heart. Also the band formed a C G for Colum-
bus Grove, and an F for Forest.
The last game of the season was with Spencerville and was Dad's night. The band's forma-
tions were in honor of the Dads of the football players. The formations were a DAD, a chair,
a pipe, and a slipper. The band then formed an S for Spencerville and an F for Forest.
The band members wish to express their thanks to the Band Mothers whose work made
it possible for them to have their new uniforms which are very attractive. They also wish to
express their thanks to everyone who helped in any way to make this project possible.

HOMECOMING QUEEN AND ATTENDANTS
On October 21, 1949, the Forest High School played its annual Home-
coming game with Columbus Grove as its opponent. To reign over this
evening's activities, the Forest High students elected Donna Mae Oates as
queen. The students who were elected as her attendants were Phyllis
Kneisley and Marilyn Harford.
The lovely queen and her attendants came on the field in a beautilul red
Studebaker convertible, to be met by the band in the formation of a crown.
They were escorted to the toastmistress, Ann Holtzmuller, who presented
each with a beautiful bouquet of yellow mums. After short speeches by the
queen and attendants, they were seated on a throne in the bleachers where
they viewed the game. To add to the evening's festivities the boys won the
game 19 to 12.
Afterthe game, a dance was held in the gymnasium in honor of Queen
Donna and her attendants. Captain Harold Waller and co-captain Iim
Marshall escorted them to the throne where the queen was crowned.
