We, the Senior Class of Forest High School, as a departing tribute
dedicate the 1953 Forest Leaves, in lasting memory to Harold fSkinnyj
Wright. Though his life spanned but a few short years, death failed to
destroy the intangibles which remain to challenge us in service to our
fellow man. His genial and friendly nature, terrific obsession to win
in sports, deep sense of loyalty to his friends, a kindly and cheerful
approach to all he met, are unforgettable and cherished memories.
It is our humble and grateful wish to respectfully give recognition
to one we grew to know and admire.

Here is a group of men who, although they remain in the background a great
deal of the time, make up an essential part of the machinery of this school. lt
is hard to realize how many tasks they must perform in order to make our school
a fine institution of learning. We should be very grateful for the fine work they
have accomplished. We seniors are especially grateful to them for helping make
this part of our lives thus far enjoyable and educational. May we all acknowledge
their workin the future and praise them for it.

lt ls the year i965 and a beautlful day ln July. Everywhere in the town of Forest are huge posters reading, "Old Home Week. " Many days ago
lnvltatlons were sent to all fonner residents urging them to attend and stressing particularly this evening when a wonderful entertainment is to be
given. All the talent for this program ls strictly home talent. Every performer was at one time a resldent of this town and was graduated from our
hi h school.
8 The hour for the great event has arrived. Every seat ln the vast new auditorium ls filled, and all are eagerly awaiting the perforsnance ln which
many delightful surprises have been promised. The platform is a mass of beautiful flowers and autumn leaves and the walls are hung with garlands of
plne and laurel. lt ls truly a festlve occasion.
Seated ln the audience are many celelxltles. As I look about me, I see a number of my old classmates. There is Kenny, our kind hearted friend,
who became very wealthy through wise investments, and ls now a noted farmer. His money is paying for much of the "Old Home Week' expenditures.
The ladies ln me front seats are all stylishly and becomlngly dressed that they arouse my curlouslty. I am told that thelg beautiful garments come
from the very select, not to say expemive, shoppe of Yvonne who designs gowns for all the best dressed women ln the country. She ls here herself
and looks "the glass of fashion and mold of form. "
Seated near her Ls Bill, a real estate dealer who owns so much property that he has to keep a card Index of lt In order to know it hlmself. He has
glven the use of the auditorium and the spacious park, both of which belong to him. Seated at one slde, watching with interest, I see Alice Thlel,
dignified and haughty. I asked about her and am told that she is the head of a very fashionable girls school ln New York.
Standing ln the door, looking for old friends I find Tom Pt'ce, head Forest Ranger of the Yellowstone National Park. Except that he has grown a
trlfle stouter, and looks more cheerful than ever, but stlll he hasn't changed ln personality at all. Two people, entering, receive a warm reception
from the commlttee at the door. They are Bob Briggs, a famous Civil Engineer, and Tom Kellogg, a Mechanical Engineer, who together designed
and constructed this huge new audltorlum.
Around of applause greets the man just taking his seat by the window. He looks familiar and yet not quite familiar enough. I can't qulte tell who
he ls. Now I know who he lsl LeRoy. Remember how he used to love electronics and repalr of TV and Radio etc. He has turned his knowledge to
good account and now ls the greatest TV Tycoon ln the country--supervising all the TV manufacturers and stations.
Directly behlnd LeRoy ls Duane, who is a great man of the Forest and knows all about the outdoor life. To prove this he has just been appointed
Professor of Forestry at Ohio State.
A woman is sketching the people as they come in and doing lt very well, indeed, for I peep over het shoulder to see. Of course, you know who
tl1at ls. Yes, lt's Pat E. always the artist ln the class. They say she has become quite a famous person as Illustrator of magazine stories and newspaper
And now the entertainment is beglnnlng. There ls a hushed expentency. The lights in the aualtorlum fade and the footllghts flash on.
Before the packed house appears a tall, dignified figure who makes an eloquent address of welcome. Some remember our famous class MC. ,
Clyde Harrold. He is now the Agriculture teacher of this llttle school of Forest and what I hear he is making qulte a hlt with the guys ln school.
But first he calls attention to the beautiful flowers and other decorations saying that they were the gift of Roslna, now me leading florist ln town.
I remember her exquisite taste ln decorations in years gone by and am not at all surprised. For as we all know she always was a flower herself.
Clyde announces that after the entertainment refreshments will be served by Mrs. Gordon Brown, the former Alice lolllff, who is proprietor of
the delightful Old Home Tea Room. As he speaks the words, my mouth waters in anticipation, for I have not forgotten the delightful refreshments
she served when she entertained the class years ago.
Now the entertainment beglns. There ls gay music, then on the darkened stage ln the spotlight appears a dainty flgure, klsslng her hand to the
audience. My Goodnessl It's Patty, who in her childhood always said she would be a dancer. She has certainly kept her word, for she gives us a
wonderful performance. The M. C. says she ls the most clever dancer In the world. What a salary she must get. Still the wlfe of Mr. Carl Sheldon
she ls now teaching her children to dance.
Next they announce a trumpet solo. Here she comes out on the stage. She is tuning up her horn. Who is it? I know. Why, it's Vlvlan. She ls now
playing the tune "Outside of Heaven." I remember the time she played lt at a banquet at school. It is as beautiful now as it was then. I hear she ls
making qulte a name for herself with her trumpet and a member of the all glrl band. Now she ls announcing that she will play with the director of
the all girl band and here she comes out on the stage now. I know who this ls already just by looking at her small waist line. lt's Leota. Now the
wonderful wlfe of Louis Plank and along with hlm they have four llttle splinters.
Next ls a famous vlollnlst who plays the most beautiful music for us. Yes, of course, lt's Dorothy, and she plays even better than we always sald
she would. She has just returned from a concert tour ln Europe. In fact she retumed a week earlier than she had intended, just to attend the Old Home
The spotlight ls on Charles Cramer, now pianist In his city tavern. I can stlll remember when he was ln school the only thing he could play was
"Roll Out the Barrel. " He plays beautifully and looks not a day older than when he played that song.
And now here comes a man ln uniform. Why lt's the little fellow of the class. It's Eugene. As I can see he is now the blg Admiral Anspach. He sure
has changed since he was in school: he ls much bigger a man today than I had ever expected hlm to be.
I see a familiar girl. I know her very well, but haven't seen her for a long time. It's Betty. I hear she ls now the president of the Ohio Oil
Company. She lr the first woman president of that company. And by the way she ls not married and stlll playing the field. Right next to Betty ls the
prominent telephone operator of Forest. Yes, Marjorie ls now t.he owner of the General Telephone Company. She certainly has come along way
slnce she flrst became a telephone operator. Jack Landon is a guy I haven't seen ln a long time and over there he stands. When he was in school he
always had a good job at the Locker. Now he is one of the biggest owners of Super Market Chain stores in the world. His headquarters Is here In Forest.
The spotlight ls now shifted to the great audltorlum organ, and the M.C. Introduces Wanda Musgrave, now organist ln a clty church and teacher In
a school of organ music. She pl ' autlfully and looks not a day older than when she played ln the school programs.
And now, out upon the pla olls Frank, with a little book ln his hand. He needs no introduction from the M.C. , for we all recognize him
at once, Frank the author of th ghtful short stories. He reads us two of them and then gives a charming llrtle talk, telling how his friends ln the
old home town lnsplred many of hls best stories.
Then, last of all, looklng stunning in an elaborate evening gown, comes Pat. She is a writer of plays and has two successful ones running on Broadway
now. She makes a friendly little speech, addressing particularly our superintendent and the members of the faculty, who are ln the audience enjoying
the program and who look as young and awe-inspiring as they dld when we trembled before them years ago.
Then the entire audience rises, as the performers all appear on tl1e stage at once. Our organist and our violinist play and, led by Chuck, we all
sing 'Auld Lang Sync" and ad joum for the promised refreshments from Allce's Old Home Tea Room. As I am walking out I overheat two members of
my class who arrlved late discussing the baseball standings. One of them, Isee, is Ohlin Hemmerly who always dreamed of being a big league baseball
player and ls now pitching for the New York Yankees. Wlth hlm is Cary Kneisley owner of several large farms ln this vlclnity and also Short Course
Teacher in the Forest Schools. As I enter the Tea-Room, my eyes are drawn toward the young woman helping Allce. Why lt's her sister-in-law,
Phylliss I understand she ls the President of the local Mother's Club and also head of the local nursery school. As for myself I have just retumed from
Oklalwa to attend this show.

Since most of the annual shows
the students engaged in the various
extra curricular activities which
take place from fall to spring, it
seems that at least one page
should show that the students of
F. I-I. S. spend some portion of
the school year in class rooms and
laboratories. The classes pictured
might be considered typical or the
more studious groups might be
posing for the "birdie".

The Student Council of Forest has been active for three years now. It is made
up of the four upper class presidents, two students from each of these classes,
one chosen by the class members and one chosen by the teachers, and the pres-
idents ofthe F.F. A. and the F. H. A. The Student Council consists of 14 members
and 3 advisors. The members are also members of the National Association of
They have carried out the following projects this year: they sponsored a pep
rally held last fall, and a clothing drive during Christmas season. The clothing
and money collected was sent to Kentucky to be distributed among the needy.
They helped purchase the new mimeograph machine, were in charge of several
refreshment stands during the games, assisted in the graduation exercises in the
Spring, and had representatives meet with surrounding high schools' student
The presidents are members for the full year while the other members are
chosen for one semester only.

During the first few months of the school year, we found
ourselves deeply ingrossed in working on our final class
play, The Moon Makes Three, which we hoped would prove
interesting and entertaining to everyone.
We sincerely hope we fulfilled this ambition, that every-
one enjoyed themselves throughout the excitement of the
Halloween party and wedding, and that our play will stand
among the unforgettable.
We turn the stage, equipment, and the unforgettable
practices over to the following classes and wish them every
bit of success.

On September 5th the Rangers met Richwood in the Prevue at Ken-
ton. After leading most of the game we were defeated 13 to 6. That
following week we played the Bulldog's of Elida. After holding a 6
point lead the first half the Rangers came back with two touch-downs
and an extra point to defeat a strong Elida team 19 to 0.
The next week we played our first home game, with Pandora. This
was supposed to be the toughest team of the season, but the confident
Rangers turned back the Fleet-wings 47 to 14. On September 26 we
met Delphos on our home field. After being behind most of the game,
the Rangers scored a touchdown with three minutes left to play to come
out on top 13 to 12. This was a very thrilling game for the Homecoming
Next the Forest Rangers invaded the Kenton Wildcats on the latter's
field. This game is always a bitter rivalry. The stands were packed.
In this game Forest jumped into the lead and kept gradually building up
until the end of the game. The score was 34 to 14. Before the Dad's of
the Rangers, we knocked off a tough Lafayette team 13 to 7.
Traveling to Columbus Grove the following week we encountered
our first defeat. Although we were beaten this was somewhat of a moral
victory for the Rangers. The game ended with Grove on top 13 to 6.
On the following week the Rangers traveled to Spencerville. Leading
throughout the game we were victorious by 65 to 12 score.
Then came the Ada Bulldogs, who were highly enthusiastic and con-
fident. Due to a few injuries and a bad first half we were beaten Z6-7.
In the season finale an experienced Shawnee club came to Forest. This
was Mom's night and the Rangers lost this high scoring game 38 to 25.
The Rangers finished in third place in the Northwest Conference.
Everyone is looking for a fine team next year since there will be sev-
eral experienced letterrnen returning.

The Rangers started the 1952-1953
basketball season with five returning
lettermen. We played our first game
at home with Mt. Victor and won
after a see-saw battle, 5,1 to 73. The
same week we invaded Marseilles on our
court. The bulldo s had us tied at the
half, but the speesy Rangers staged a
tremendous fourth quarter and went on
to win 86 to 70.
On the next Friday we played host
to Roundhead. Our height was too much
for the inexperienced Indians. The final
score was 68 to 35. The next game was
with the Ada Bulldogs. The game was
again close at the half, but another big
fourth quarter won the game for the
Rangers 73-57. And then we played our
bitter rivals Hardin-Northern. Leading
throughout the game we were victorious
by 61-51 score.
During Christmas vacation we played
Morral in the Marion Colosseum. After
a slow first half the Rangers won 47 to 42.
Trailing at the half the Rangers came
back strong to defeat a very strong Mc-
Guffey team 68 to 57. Victory number
eight was Al er by a close 7 to 68.
On the foqlowing night the Rangers
ventured to Arlington and defeated the
experienced Red Devils 67 to 65. Then
the Rangers lost their first game of the
year. The Salem Cornhuskers were too
much and the final score was Salen 69,
Forest 61. Next the Rangers played a
Strong Hardin-Northern team and were
defeated 52 to 51.
On Saturday the nearby Wharton
team defeated the Rangers 62 to 52.
Finally the Ran ers were back on the
victory trail. Tiey met the defeated
Ridgeway 69 to 64. On the next night
the Rangers entertained the Sycamore
team. The final outcome was 61 to 58,
favor of Sycamore,
Next week the Rangers played a
return game with McGuffey and were
again victorious 76 to 64. Then came
the county tournament, After drawin
a first round bye, the Rangers playeg
Alger. After trailing by a considerably
large margin, the Rangers came back
and won 7 to 69. In the Championship
game, the Ridgeway Tigers could not
quite cope with the speed of our boys
and we were Hardin County Champions
by a 62 to 61 score.
And then came the District Tourna-
ment at Celina. The Rangers drew a
stron Beaverdam team and were de-
featezf77 to 73.
The Forest Rangers completed a
successful season winning 13 games and
