CARTER The success of a school system depends largely upon the attitude of the Board in providing for the adequate equipment and personnel which make better education possible. Our School Board has taken its responsibility to the community seriously and has for some time had an eye to the future requirements of Fostoria's schools. Knowing that a building of less than twelve rooms is not an economic unit, the men began some three years ago to secure additions to some of the present school prop- erties. Today the Sandusky Street School boags five and one-third acres of recently acquired playground, while the Sixth Street School has nearly four acres. Mr. Dewey St. John who has served faithfully for several years, retired from the Board near the end of last year, having moved to Toledo. Dr. J. L. Carter succeeded him as president, while the vacancy thus created has been filled by a new member, Mr. F. C. Morrison. MR. A. L. MANN MR. W. J. DAUB MR. F. C. MORRISON MR. C. A.

C' Pi God Speed to Our Seniors "Knowledge is Power"-so ran the motto suspended in mid-air at the early High School Commencement exercises. It is to be regretted that in our own day there are hosts upon hosts still believing in the fallacy of that motto, even though the world is full of High School and College graduates who are "walking encyclo- pedias," but recognized failures, because their knowledge is cold and lifeless. There is each year, however, an increasing number of people who are coming to realize that 'Experience' is the great vital factor in Education. It is to be hoped that in another decade or two, there may come to our vast army of American High School boys and girls, an all-pervading group consciousness, that to make a High School diploma a priceless possession requires untold actual and vicarious living. Living of such nature that the content matter of courses pursued is related to real life problems and life situations,-related so deeply, so sincerely, and so genuinely real, that the facts of History, Mathematics, Science, English and Literature become living power, incarnate, so that its possessor, sensing and feeling the deep convictions of school experience, becomes a man among men, exercising mag- netic power,-power that is foreign to a life of memory and cold knowledge, but that is acquired through genuine and sincere living. Therefore, in the light of the foregoing, my message to the graduating class would run as follows: Here is hoping that you have made the subject matter of your High School courses a part of your very selvesg that you have in a large measure lived and relived actually and vicariously, but withal genuinely, everything that could be brought within the limitations of your own life experiences. And here is hoping further, that you have come to realize that out of it all there flows not. only the issues, but the power of life itself. May you ever have to face genuinely realchallenging problems, so that out of your effort towards mastering them you may continuously draw out whatever promise of manhood or womanhood there lies within you 3 and thus unfolding, ripen in your sunset days into the very noble men and women that your Alma Mater confidently expects you to be. Your sincere friend and counselor, Superintendent of Schools. logos- Page Nineteen Page Tfwenty it ,I We " it " if f .1 4... ve A. .-r... A, - . A : .TQ , . Q..

Life will test you to determine whether or not your school has fitted you for a society larger still-the World, in which you must now assume a deeper responsibility than has been your lot heretofore. If your roots are widely spread in the richness of those things which are our cultural heritage from the past-the ideals, the knowledge, and the relationships for which your Alma Mater stands, and if these things have become a part of your being-you need not fear whatever test may come. With your graduation will come commendations for your accomplishments and injunctions as to the manner in which to meet the new phases of life which lie before you. To such commendations I, perhaps, can add nothing. Indeed the greatest commendation you can receive on this earth is not comparable with your own con- sciousness of growth and purpose-coming as it must from obligations honestly met and work well done. You are your own best judge. And our mistakes,-of course we have made some-may they serve to make us broader, finer men and women. It is to be regretted that I do not know all of you with the same intimacy that I do some of you, for I am sure it would have multiplied the pleasure and inspiration which I have received from our association. Among your problems will be the development of the faculty of living and Work- ing with your fellowmen in an appreciative and co-operative manner. Then, too, you must learn to utilize your spare time in such a Way as to secure a maximum of happiness with none of the taint of cheapness or superficiality. Throughout your work and your play there must exist a purposiveness such as can only come through conscious. planning and effort. May your ideals be high but not narrow, your requirements of self, exacting, your courage unfaltering, your thinking liberal, and your tolerance great-more I could not wish for you. Your sincere friend, Principal of the High School. 1029 Page Twenty one - A :K-A: ' V ' 1515? ' -v--vu M - " ' i , .

The establishment of right habits in the matter of composition is regarded as fundamental. Literature in the English course is not regarded as an end in itself, a body of facts to be learned, but as an instrument through which the student may be initiated into the spiritual heritage stored up for him in books. The course hopes to train the student to use his leisure time profitably and happily, to broaden and to deepen his sympathies, to enable him to understand how the race has loved and worked and suffered and laughed. It aims to make what he learns function nobly in reverence for law and tradition, for humanity, and for God. The English department, in breaking away from the older and more formal methods of teaching, lays emphasis upon meeting the individual needs of the student. To this end the department supervises such extra curricular activities as Sigma Lambda, the dramatic work, debate, and the editing of the Red and Black publications.

Mathematics and Science The aims of the teaching of mathematics in high school may be divided roughly into three groups-practical, disciplinary, and cultural. The practical aims are achieved in the teaching of the ability to solve the problems that arise in everyday life. Mental discipline is developed through the analysis of problems in which the student learns to reject those facts that are irrelevent, to establish correct relations among the remaining ones, and, finally, to reach logical conclusions. In many cases the appreciation of pure mathematics may be cultivated, and it is here that the cultural aims are realized. The science courses of the school teach the student the nature of his physical environment. In an age in which man has gained such control over nature through science it becomes increasingly important that education should provide the individual with its findings and methods in order that he may be satisfactorily adjusted to his surroundings. No student is graduated from our school without at least one course in this department. Mk. BLooM Miss KELLEY MR. CooK MR. STEED 1 -c - +-c 15,30 Q-e ' , to 4 i S I Page Twenty three I s , ' ' 1?

The study of the social customs of the Romans is stimulated through the use of interesting projects and such illustrative materials as pictures and drawings. The Foreign Language department offers unusual opportunties to the students enrolled in its class, inasmuch as the basis of international good-will and tolerance rests in an understanding of the ideals and customs of the other nations of the world. We are able to enrich our own ideals only through comparison and contact with the best achievements of others. After certain fundamentals of grammar are mastered, the student begins to read the masterpieces of France and Spain, and to acquire a speaking knowledge of these languages which will definitely enlarge his horizons and outlook upon life both at home and abroad. Many students have enjoyed carrying on correspondence with students of these foreign countries. Miss MCCAULEY Mas. BLAND Miss VAN AUSDALL Miss STACKHOUSE -f.....l4- ..-......, ....-- ..- ,, , .

The principles of design, drawing, and painting, forming the basis of Art instruction in general, are applied as concretely as possible to a wide variety of projects for both home and school. The Art Department has furnished posters for almost every school function, has supervised the bringing of a large Art exhibit to the school last fall, has furnished designs for our standard school ring, and not least, has taken entire charge of the industrial art motif running through this year's Red and Black. Fostoria's present musical program, being largely extra-curricular, is described elsewhere. The Music department feels deeply that it is a serious failure in our educative process for any student with musical ability to lack the opportunity to develop it as fully as possible. We hope the day is not far distant when free music instruction will be available to everyone in our school. Mk. WAINWRIGHT Mas. THOMPSON Mk. Jomzs I s so s siozo- Page T-wenty fm r , f i F' History and Social Science lt was Burke who once said "People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors." This interpretation of the present in terms of the past is stressed in our history work. The study of history seeks to make the student not only conscious of the glorious traditions of his own country, but in addi- tion, to make him a citizen of every country and of every age. In a complex age when men are brought into such constant social relations the study of Economics and Sociology becomes exceedingly important. Here the aim is to consider not the customary pathological problems of the social process, but rather the normal social organism functioning around the student's own life and forming a part of his very self. lt is altogether fitting that the new School Library of almost two thousand volumes should be mentioned in this department, for though all departments use the library, History and Social Science are peculiarly dependent upon it.

This end is reached through the . 1 regular courses in Commercial Arithmetic, Bookkeeping, Typing, and Shorthand, and in some cases through participation in business administration of high school activities. The graduate of the Commercial department is well prepared to take complete charge of the books of almost any small oliice. l Practically every organization in the high school has access to services of the advanced classes in stenography and bookkeeping. "Copy" for the Fohirab is pre- pared by members of the typing classes, while several periods each month are devoted to special assignments for the Red and Black Annual. The administration of the Thrift system is entirely in the hands of the classes in accounting. I The health of the school population has become a major concern of the school program in recent years. Fostoria meets her needs with a full-time nurse, whose ' headquarters neighbor the rooms of the Commercial department. L ii 4 4 W Miss KNABLE Miss PLUMMER Mks. BU DAHN MR. KNEPPER . 3 .

The industrial world of today offers untold opportunities to boys who are interested in Manixal Arts. Woodworking makes an especial appeal to the creative ability of the students and the making of articles of furniture for use in the home stimulates individual initiative. The curriculum is arranged so that Work is done in machine sketching and design and architectural drawing. Working drawings of all projects are required before credit is given. The Printing Course offers three years of instruction. The first two are devoted to composition and special project development, and the last year is given over to co-operative shop work, one week of class work alternating with a week of industrial shop work in factories throughout the city.

What i l does the new age demand? The new age demands social leaders, team play, ability to 1 work with others. The New Physical Education is highly social. It places emphasis upon the group, upon leadership, upon co-ordinated action. The old emphasis in Athletics was upon the spectacle. The new emphasis is upon participation. The aim of our Physical Education is to provide an opportunity for the individual to act in situations that are physically wholesome, mentally stimulating and satisfying, 1 and socially sound. The oflice is at once the receiving and purchasing department of the school. It assembles and keeps in permanent files all records of attendance and scholarship. It 1 4 strives to secure the regular attendance at school of the school population. The office 3 is the clearing house, in fact, for the exchange of a thousand and one pieces of business l l , 1 that come up in school administration. i Q l 1 l X K Q 1 i I I rj Q' 3 ' ' 1 Mks.

Either goal presents difficulties all its own. The transition from sixth grade to departmental Work is always hard. Certain disadvantages can be minimized but never eliminated. The gains, however, are great, in that teachers of each subject are specialists resident in rooms equipped for their type of work. The student 'thus acquires a sense of responsibility for his own 1 ' tasks as he fits himself into the schedule and the mechanical details which surround 5 : Q ' him, which aids him to understand the high school situation when he reaches it. 5 ln connection with academic alms, special attention IS given to English and r Arithmetic as the basic majors, and Mathematics later. i While the teachers realize that mental tests are still in process of experimentation, v Q Q they watch the student's progress measured by his possible attainments, based on his i . intelligence quotients, and his reading and arithmetic achievements. Thus his limita- l i l i i 5 i l . l LL 'A 'J f , T l . i Miss ZAHM Miss MCCORMICK Miss EGER Miss REESE l l l ,,.,,,,m,,,.., ...uv Mu.- -. .-- , -... ,W .... -. tv ,lk . , Wa. , . ...-...a Wm Page Thirty 4 i M -fin-.. , ...., V . ,, . -- J'-iw, H -fy mu.-ij .., jppk, irg. if ' Aims and Methods e tions and possibilities are constantly considered and special talents and trends encouraged. The second aim of the junior high school, that of adolescent adjustments to the school environment socially, is a much more complex task, greater than in any other period of school life. For this reason it is fortunate that nearly all Fostoria Junior High School teachers are experienced in teaching grades both younger and older, as a necessary background for understanding the traits and tendencies common to their students. As young folks are often a law unto themselves in the school and in the home, the chief needs of both parents and teachers are sympathy and patience, with close co-operation between school and home. Fostoria Junior High School is a laboratory in which teachers reverently study their pupils in order to aid them in making happy adjustments, both academic and moral.

THOMAS HARDY. The wheel of fate is turning. It turns and turns, nor slows, nor stops, nor waits for any human. Each mo- ment of our life is recorded and never can be erased or wiped out. This ever turning, never ceasing, is likened to the toil of God. At last the greatest re- quest of our life has been fulfilled and We poor humans are for a while privil- eged to view this miraculous thing. Ah!-it's turning right before our eyes-We see! we understand. There are twelve spokes,-each symbolic of one of the twelve greatest years in the lives of young people. The first eight of these have grown almost invisible, but as we peer into our magic mirror, the vision slowly unfolds before us. We take each spoke into con- sideration and by holding up the first to the enchanted mirror we see -the year nineteen seventeen slowly come into view. There are hundreds of tiny tots holding tightly to mother's hand, on their way to school. School-oh, how they waited, dreamed, some even prayed for this moment, -the biggest in their lives. Here are lassies with bright pink ribbons in their hair. Here are the laddies with their ears and necks shining bright-oh, how frightened in the front of the room, who doesn't want youngsters running up and down the aisles playing tag. It is certainly strange and unheard of. But the great woman is kind. She has lots of new games. The little ones are very timid and one very tiny girl, crying-but they are gaining enough courage to look at their teacher and smile-but oh l-the picture is slowly fading--the wheel gradually turning, and we come to the second spoke. It slowly comes into view and the refiection we see in our magic mirror is one of astonishment. Where are the timid little girls and shy little boys? They are settling down to their tasks. They do not play so much and now at last come to realize the power behind -the teacher's hands. They have outgrown all timidity and feel them- selves much superior to "those little first grade babies." s . ,, -,.,,,mmp,,,,-,,-.-.

In those four years We sequentially see the outgrowing of childish traits. The girls have, true to the prevailing style, bobbed their hair. They have acquired the art of coyly smiling at their particular hero. Apples are presented to the "only one" at recess time, and sometimes after school they all congregate to play hide and seek at that particular "old street corner". This, sixth spoke, shows their last year at the dear old grade building. As our picture fades we have them with their grade cards in their hands, their faces aglow as they read the wonderful message-"promoted to the seventh grade". Junior High School l-oh those bewitching words! It thrills and fills them all with delight. The seventh spoke - that all-important one painted red - now appears before us in our miraculous mirror. It is a beautiful September morn. They are all assembled in the Auditorium clutching tightly at that best chum's hand. Trying their best to be calm, they are nervous and excited. After a while each one is assigned to a room-oh, what a horror-some are in rooms with no one they know. And then what fun to have a different teacher for each class. But how they get mixed up, and what a great deal there is to learn. The picture darkens-the shadow of death hovers over and a dear little girl-Louise Priddy is taken. Hearts are saddened and with a deeper realization they come to learn what life means. The picture dims and the eighth spoke looms into view. This spoke is clearer-we see the same hustle and bustle, the contest for grades- the literary organizations and finally that all important event - the Commence- ment Play. It is a forest !-Indians! - Warriors - Maidens - Romance! We see Virginia Kraft as the beautiful maideng the heroic brave is Carl Slosser. The old Indian mother, Ruth Cole, the broken warrior Dad, Ralph Burnett. Other characters are Robert Harley- Merrett Sterheim-Robert McFadden -Josephine James-Charles Lee-and Velma Furman. The rest of the class are dancing in choruses and everyone is gay-and then! tha-t event which is next to the most important in their young life-the receiving of their diplo- mas. One hundred-twenty-two are graduated. The picture leaves us with the im- pression of gayety, and then our ninth spoke is coming into sight. .10 2 Q - Page Fifty one ,..,-..

This ninth is one of false fronts-so to say. Each little "freshie" is trying to attain poise and an indifferent attitude to offset the thought of fear-"Afraid ?"--they ask- "Of what, of whom?"-but all the while their eyes and ears are open wide. It is so hard to appear nonchalant when they really know not just what to do, and when those upper classmen "razz"-oh, it's hard to keep away tears. But undaunted, like the little men and women they are, they keep up brave fronts. These same upperclassmen sit up and take notice when they find the largest number of students of the Honor-honor Roll are these bravely indifferent "freshies". Maxine Danner and Robert Harley alter- nately lead these Honor-honor Rolls. Nor are these Freshmen among those missing on the athletic field. They are justified in holding up their heads when one like Richard Biggs represents them on the gridiron. We find Freshmen in Glee Club- Eveljn Fox and Ruby Drake. There are "freshies" also in orchestra:--Josephine James,,Joyce Gilliard, Adam Dicken, and Arson Scott, and in the band, Harold Hay- wood, Harry Flechtner, Adam Dicken, Anson Scott, Albert Thornton, Lyman Clark, Jack Adams and Hugh Williams. Indeed as I look at this class I feel it has indeed something to be proud of, with all this latent talent. I am anxious to see what the remaining three spokes have in store for me. As this fades and goes into the past I see before me a class of individual students, grown into a real co-operating group. I see at their first class meeting their crude attempt at parliamentary law. But I see hidden treasure also. They choose Harry Griffiths as their head, and an able one, too. As Vice-President we have another unusual thing in this unusual class: It is a girl-Maxine Danner. Mary Fargo is Secretary, and Norman Hawkins is Treasurer. The class colors chosen are purple and white-purple for royalty and majesty and white for purity. The class is going forward, enlarging itself, and we find a goodly majority of the class participating in various activities. As we gaze steadily into our enchanted mirror we see Dessa Munn, Vauda Clary, and Elizabeth Carter chosen for Glee Club, and once more we find Rich- ard Biggs on the football field, with Don Walters, Robert McFadden, and Don Burke as well, making names for them- selves. As we keep on with our gazing we are more than positive that our pro- phecy as to the unusualness of this class is amply justified. This class will leave 4. ,L LQ 2, -zz Page Fzfty tfwo -V -N .. s,-'K-, .-f 'gf' . 'W . . 1. 5 . i, . H.-- 5 i ., --- J. me ,, Q A , ,I , -fr. . ' ' ' . -r--1-" "' i .s ' 1 ' " 1 . Q . 'lil EZ CJ 612.

In this Sophomore year we see more names added to Chorus, Orchestra, and Band, and we find a Girls' Basket- ball team progressing under the able hands of lyliss Devers. On the night of graduation we see Ruby Drake, another girl of this class of ability, winning the first prize for the Exchange essay on "Parks and Playgrounds". It is dimming. Let us peer even more intently, for we know that the two remaining spokes have more surprises than we ever dreamed of, and we want nothing to impair our sight. The spoke is coming nearer and we resume our l looking in the mirror of-shall we call it memories? The morning, as we see it, is bright and cheery, and we find ninety-eight of the original one hundred and forty-two that entered high school as freshmen. We find as we go on, new organizations and activities. Seven boys are seen being initiated into Hi-Y: Harold Anderson, Norman Hawkins, Frederick Vosburg, Edgar Covrett, Arthur Gamertsfelder, Albert Thornton and Adam Dicken. We then see the first Junior class meeting with Don Walters at the head, Frederick Vosburg as Vice- President, Peg Flechtner as Secretary, and Albert Thornton as Treasurer. On the football field this class of talent is represented by Don Burke, Bob McFadden, Carl Slosser, Wilbur Gibbs, and our old standbys, Dick Biggs and Don Walters, the latter having been chosen as captain for the coming year. This class once more proves its ability by having two Junior debaters, Harry Griffiths and Charles Lee. On the basketball floor they are represented by Harry Roth, Carl Slosser and Robert McFadden, and their sensational playing demands recognition from that upper class, the Seniors. This group of Junior boys are banding together and forming for the purpose of nature worship. The boys are Harold Haywood, Ivan ller, Lester Smith, Robert Harley, Robert Kroetz, Albert Thornton, Norman Hawkins and Hugh Williams. There is a girls' Junior nature club, too, and as I see them in my mirror they are out on a bird hike-the Junior girls who organized are Ruth Geere, Mildredl Zuern, Florence Snyder, Geraldine Johnson, Lois Gorrill, Florence Yauch and Elizabeth Hall. We see more ability in the selection from this class for F. M. D. "Goats"! They are Don Walters, Harry Griffiths, Hugh Williams, Frederick Vosburg and Harry Roth. ln the Delta Delta organization Carl Slosser, Jack Adams, Don Walters, and Don Burke proudly represent their class. l i e?ffi1'?..g3.'f1r."'gg..m. 4:4 - -..- .-- Page Frfly three 'L...-,........................

VVe see these Juniors en- tertaining the Senior class at a Prom and as everyone is happy and gay it must be a delightful affair-and with this sight our picture dims and is gone. Three of the four most interesting sights I ever beheld are gone and with eager anticipation as well as with a pang of regret I find that the one re- maining spoke is slowly coming into view. My, how proud and self assured these dignified seniors are-how they look down with disdain upon all underclass- men. But what are these thoughts, these anticipations I hear-oh yes-a new faculty-new faces, there is a dark haired man-the new princpal, Mr. Baird, and here a large blond man, the new superintendent, Mr. BuDahn. They are kindly looking and we know big things are to be accomplished this year. And then we see a face that has been outstand- ing in the three preceeding years,-a face of one who has inspired young people for years, one that has met life's battle and come out victorious, Miss McDermott. With these three persons as the Hrst to come under our glance this year, we feel that much good will come from their school life. The daily association with this kind of people is needed to guide these young ones. I see these Seniors at a class meeting. How different are the methods of parlia- mentary law from those they used when Sophomores. We see Harry Griffiths again heading his class in the highest office, that of President. Mary Fargo is the Vice- President, Peg Fletcher, Secretary, and Albert Thornton, Treasurer. The scene is once more changing and I am taken to the football field where I see these Senior boys working under a great handicap because of their ineligibility to com- pete in the Athletic Association. VVe find Don Walters the Captain of his crew, which includes Dick Biggs, Carl Slosser, Don Burke, Wilbur Gibbs, Bob lXIcFadden, Gerald Fling, and Hugh VVilliams. They play college freshman teams and as a general rule they hold their own. The picture slowly turns to the basketball floor where we find another group of boys fighting just as hard for their Alma lNIater. While these boys are playing their school is once more admitted into the Association. They play high school teams and victory after victory is recorded. These deserving boys include Bob McFadden, Carl Slosser, Harry Roth and Fred Shaffer. I see them in their victory over Fremont at Sandusky. Oh those boys are fighting. Again the picture shifts. I see two debates. One in Fostoria with Bluffton and one in Bluffton with Fostoria. Fostoria is victorious over both. Her negative team is composed of Harry Griffiths, Ovivian Slemmer and Norman Hawkins. Florence Snyder debates -sag,-A-,,,L,,g,i,-jm.-..,,.t-,,,,.-.,,, .-4, ,..-, -..,, K , 3 5' g ---,-ci..-: ,.-. up --f va.-. a-4--,.n..,,..-.uunn-new .. . . tj N .Z .W -. ..... -v .. W-.- . . .....

It is sad that these two Seniors who had counted so much on debating and who had worked so hard must be deprived of their opportuni- ties of serving their school. The picture darkens-it is the black shadow of death. Once more are their hearts saddened and into the midst of joyous gaiety comes pain and heart break. One who has gone so far, is taken to the Land where all is right, and there is an ache in the hearts of all these Seniors for Margaret Scharf. The picture clears and we find these Seniors organizing a Dramatic-Oratory Club, the first of its kind in high school. Then the C. M. T. C. Association is organized. I think my picture is dimming- Oh it is, it is, the end is near, but once more I see these Seniors at a class meetingg they are deciding to leave as a memorial to the school they love so well, books for the library. A standard ring has been selected by the four class to be used for four years. I see them presenting a class play, symbolic of their fine class, and one the school is justified in being proud of. The reflection in my mirror grows dimmer and dimmer, but I see these Seniors in their caps and gowns on the very biggest night of their lives thus far-their gradua- tion. They have received their diplomas and with squared shoulders they are going to face their grown-up life as fairly, as squarely, and as bravely as they have faced their young lives in high school. The picture is gone. The last spoke is gone. A new wheel is begun and I am left alone in the darkness with my memories.

For it was on that day that a new school year began and the group which was later to make up the class of '30 entered the East Wing as seventh graders. Some of the things introduced in their school lives for the first time were chang- ing classes, different teachers for each subject, and being in classes with all the people practically strangers. The course of study in the seventh grade consisted of English, Arithmetic, Geography, and General History. The eighth grade studies were English, Arithmetic, American History, and Physiology. Art, Music, Spelling, and Reading were among the minor branches. Moreover some new things were encountered here which tended to make the school program more intricate and interesting. Everyone was required to take some gym work and to participate in athletic games. The boys built bird houses in the woodworking department. The first year and the year following each boy was privileged to work out a project for himself, such as building a table or a telephone stand. In the domestic science department the girls learned the elements of success- ful home making, studying design and dress making the first two semesters, and during the latter two working in the laboratory kitchen. a 1020 Page Fzfly .fe-ven saga , V A , , ..

Concerts by the band and orchestra, various one-act plays, together with a few fine in- spirational messages made these events memorable parts of the Junior High experi- ence. There were no class officers or organizations during these two years, but a class spirit and a consciousness of fellowship which was entirely new was born. Some of the boys of the class played in the high school band which won consider- able distinction at this time, and an orchestra was organized by the music supervisor which played each week at the assemblies. Finally commencement night rolled around with all its bustle and hurry. The class play was "Evangeline" a dramatization of Longfellow's poem of that name. After weeks of strenuous work they were rewarded by a final performance that was a real achievement. The Graduating Class sang several of the eighth grade songs, and 'then came the crowning event-the presentation of diplomas. Everyone waited breathlessly-fearing his or her name might not be called. But finally all was done and the class of '30 was a full-fledged high school class. At this point in a class history it is customary to interject something about the greenness of the Freshmen as they enter high school for the first time. But the class of nineteen thirty might be considered unique in regard to this matter. By a little careful observation they were able to overcome all difficulties without embarrassment and 'to adapt themselves to their new environment without discredit to themselves, most of the class having read something of Darwin's pertinent to this matter. g r +, io ci, W--as-me-M, Page Fzfty-eight l 'I , 5, ,r,L..,ql ., "2 F, J, V, sg,-1-. 3 ,.

These were designed to ' give everyone the greatest freedom possible in preparing for any professional or busi- ness career. For the first time these people were given the opportunity of belonging to school 5 clubs and societies, athletics, glee clubs, and staffs. Band and orchestra became vital V things in the lives of many of them. During this year as well as the Sophomore year everyone was required to have one period of gym work each week. ' The next year, as Sophomores the class members elected a President, Vice-Presi- dent, Secretary, and Treasurer. The class colors chosen were blue and silver. In Music several "first desks" in band and orchestra were filled by Sophomores. One of the boys won first place in a state wide contest for clarinetists. The class was well represented in the glee clubs and choruses. ln inter-scholastic music con- ' tests others brought honor to their school. A few people who were later to become editors and associates began their work ' on the school publications and Sophomores contributed to the art Work in the yearbook 5 and monthly magazine. Sophomores were on first teams in football and basketball and track. And so the sophomore year closed with something accomplished-something done. But during this last year the mighty class of '30 has risen to new heights. With T the realization that there is only one more year to spend in the halls of their Alma , Nlater, has come a new sense of responsibility and of work to be done. l l l , W- W V A c-, --- -, '14 3 32 U M..M.,.,-.te Page Fifty-nine r-1--f-Y Aw 2 A , -V v n -- A. rn.

Of the outside activities, including band, orchestra, dramatics, athletics and vocal music, the majority of the leaders were members of the Junior Class. An especial interest was shown in debate, which was for the first time opened to mem- bers of all classes, and several Demostheneses were discovered. For the first time the business manager for the annual was chosen from the Junior Class. In athletics one person from this group established a new record for high school students in indoor track. There was an over supply of worthy candidates for Hi-Y, Girls' Reserve, and other honor organizations of the school. The F. M. D. was compelled to choose twelve "goats" from the Junior boys, being unable to limit the outstanding leaders to the customary five. Of -the one hundred sixty-seven people of the class of '30 who graduated from the eighth grade in nineteen-twenty-six, only thirty-two dropped out, leaving one hundred thirty-five. It is the aim of the Class of '30 to be remembered as one of the outstanding classes of Fostoria High School and the members will endeavor to carry this resolu- tion to its fulfillment Ilext year.

Yes, in fact we are almost Juniors. As we approach the end of our second year in High School, we are able to review our history with no little satisfaction. We have endured the trials which necessarily be- fall the initiate Cnovicej and have come through with flying colors. We know what this is to be a Freshman, but we won't tell. As Sophomores, we have done a lot of work and have had a lot of fun. Even now, we are looking forward-to the time when we shall be Juniors and then, how thrilling, when we become Seniors! After that-well let's not think about it yet. But, this is a class history and not a prophecy. It would be wonderful indeed, if we could gaze, for a few moments, into the future. We know it would hold all manner of happiness for some, sorrow and failure for a few, While the majority, perhaps, will just live for the love of living and making others happy. We venture to say that every boy really expects to be President some day and every girl looks forward to being, at least, the First Lady of the Land or a great movie actress. We began our school adventures some ten years ago. During the first few years of our school life we learned the fundamentals of education. We worked a little and played a lot and altogether we had a very good time. Life for us then was just one grand picnic. We never thought of growing up. We looked upon grown ups and the world in general with disdain and nity. But slowly and' surely we began to grow up. The older we got the better we liked it fmeaning everythingj. 11,9 4 tj . l Page S xty three fit T ' A - I :Q f 7 1 -- - -1, . 4 '. i ' ' ' - " 17 fa I. . a...,---. - i"1 ' F!

Time passed, as time will, and finally we found ourselves, to our great delight, established in the Junior High School. New honors and more duties were heaped upon us. We assumed them all with a fitting dignity. We were thrilled by the Junior High graduation, even more so by the thoughts of entering High School. Let us pass over the next year in our school life. We need only mention that we were Freshmen. So much for that. Now let us review the outstanding accomplishments of the Sophomore class. We have been very well represented in the school activities, in- cluding music, drama, athletics, debate and journalism. There are many Sophomores in the Chorus and Glee Clubs, who are putting Fostoria on the map in a musical Way. Everyone has heard of Mr. Wainwright and his championship band. Nu- merous Sophomores played in the band, some of them being very outstanding. In drama, we must admit, We are rather weak. A number of Sophomores became mem- bers of the newly formed oratory club, Omicron Lambda. In connection with this the Sophomore members gave a "Prep Show" which turned out to be a howling success. fThe howling being done by an infant member of the Sophomore class.J We may well be proud of the record our class has made in athletics. Ai number of Sophomores represented Fostoria High School on the Football and Basketball team and also in track. Two Sophomores were on the debate team this year. This is the first time in the history of Fostoria High School, that a Sophomore has made the debate team. A great many Sophomores have worked on the Fohirab newspaper and the Red and Black Annual. on both the business and editorial staffs. As a whole, we believe we have a wonderful class. ,. c--11.4 I Y 'i -ii 4" B ::i.f-eff.-af. -- .zpe -...:-fx. nan-w.n::.q.:..f-..f.a.:-aa.a:::ns P .LF , e- ...W -.-,,.-,-.

It was then decided that our class colors should be Blue and Gold. Class sweaters were ordered and now every other sweater seen is Blue and Gold. Ofhcers were elected and work was begun. The officers are to be commended for their faithful service under the expert super- vision of our class advisers Miss Westfall and Mr. Knepper. We wish to thank them for their splendid work inasmuch as they have done a great service but have received very little credit. . We feel 'that it is only fair to devote a portion of this history of our teachers, for they have played an important part in our history, both in our happiness and in our sorrows. They have been irritable at times but we have decided to let them live. It is not an easy matter to teach a headstrong, half-wild bunch of boys and girls, and we realize that even such a splendid class as ours might at time become a trifle trying. These teachers have done their best to train our minds and harts and under their guidance we have learned to dearly love our Caesar, our Geomet-ry, our Modern History. In spite of all this foolishness, we do have a genuine respect for these teachers and we appreciate everything they have done for us. When we entered the High School we numbered 168. Since that time some of our members have withdrawn while others have entered. Now at the close of our sophomore year we have 147 enrolled. Thus far our class has shown ability in the various school activities. We have worked well and it has been worth while. We still have two years of High School life ahead of us in which to prove our worth. Those years are full of hope. We are confident that in the end, the class of "3l" will be a credit to F. H.

History of the Freshman Class In September of the year 1926 the class of '32 entered the Junior High School. This was a new and strange life but as time took its course 'the class became acquainted with the Junior High proceedings and discovered life was not as terrible as it had been pictured. Chapel and lVIanual Training, which were novelties to us, proved to be a happy diversion. Our Junior High teachers deserve much credit for further guiding us along the path of knowledge and preparing the foundation for our High School subjects and we feel greatly indebted to them. After a delightful but all too short vacation we returned to the Junior High for another year but this time we were superior and not at all backward in making this known to the plebian seventh graders. Following the Graduation Play, Diplomas were awarded to those who had successfully completed the eight year course. With delight We looked forward to the time when we would enter the Senior High School, about which we had heard many interesting tales. For the first few weeks we led a precarious life. One never knew when an upper classman would pounce upon him and impose one of the many merciless penalties. We were taunted by former Freshmen with such names as: Freshie, Greennie, etc., but after a few IQQOHMH Page Sixty nine , ,-., -'-x fxx , 'ya-.

The Freshman Class already is well represented in high school activities and even now displays promise of providing unusual leadership in Fostoria High School life during the next few years. ln sports, we have members participating in football, basketball and track, and many will go out for baseball and tennis this spring. A number of Freshmen girls played most creditably on the Girls' Basketball team. Several are already working on the Red and Black, some became members of the Omicron Lambda, while many girls joined the Girls' Athletic Assocfation. A number of boys are making splendid progress in the High School Band. Of course the majority of us have found Senior High School the most interesting part of public school life and look forward to the remainder of our high school course with delight. This class rates high in scholarship and we hope to be a real asset to Fostoria High School. Our history would not be complete unless we mentioned our class advisers, Mrs. BuDahn and Mr. Cook. They deserve a great deal of credit for successfully piloting our class through its misfortunes.

' BUSINESS STAFF l Standing-Rosie Solon'on, Naomi Rupert, Dorothy Dury, Fred Wernick. D , Sitting-Florence Green, Virginia Kipka, Wilbur The Red and Black Annual l ,. Perhaps no activity in a high school requires such organized effort on the part of all concerned as the production of the Annual. This is especially true this year fi . . . . . ,l because of the introduction of certain new features into this book. ill ln the first place, the reader will recognize at once that the art motif has been I suggested by Fostoria's own industries. The staff has tried to be awake to opportu- . , nities offered in our own city. Our scenic section is new. In the third place, We have made a definite effort to show the school in action. 5 We have tried to avoid the pitfalls of minimizing the 'fmain tent". We have not il reduced the Activities section, but have, through a series of pictures in the Faculty 3:5 section, tried to portray the primary activity of the school-the classes at work. A Another departure is evident here in the grouping of the faculty into departmellts. 5 Much of the success of an annual is measured by its ability to recall memories 1 of the joys of bygone days. ln this respect if in no other We hope our book will find .i a Warm spot in the hearts of those represented in it. B One of the more radical changes has been the substitution of a list of patrons E in place of the customary advertising section. We hope that this change Will be .' accepted as a genuine improve- L ment in the appearance of the hook. It is only fitting that the staff W should here record its appreciation ,P of the co-operation and advice it I has received from the faculty, the ,A administration, and the public- .- spirited citizens of Fostoria. We feel that on this last point we speak for the entire student body. ii i is is ,. , J ity it I - - s M- Page Eighty I A ,. ----f., is. ..,."e'. . ' L l - J ' v .L - f' ':,L,,u:t:sv--:- 4- ,,-.

The Fohirab Something entirely new in the publishing line was undertaken by the Red and Black staff this year, namely, a bi-Weekly newspaper, for which the name Fohirab was coined. Through the earnest efforts of lVIr. Gastineau the project was launched and placed on a running basis. Robert Harley's efficient editorship has been a large factor in its continued success. The publication of an eight-column four-page paper is seldom found in high schools. With a new room, equipped with typewriters, filing-cabinets for both cuts and past issues, conference tables, a managers' desk, and the conventional stools, the Red and Black office takes on quite an atmosphere of efficiency and, when filled with busy reporters, of industry, as well. The past issues of the paper will testify that our reporters are not "cubs,' but rather, first-class news writers. The staff hopes that the Fobirab will become a real influence in the school and city N life of Fostoria, and that it will bind the school and home more closely together in the cause of a better school in Fostoria. The Staff is grateful to those typists who have served so faith- fully all year. The business staff deserves especial credit for mak- ing the publication financially pos- sible. . i 5 "A Page Eighty-if-wo l 1 ,. .

We back our band and our band puts pep into us. For ten years Fostorians have watched it grow from babyhood to the present organization which ranks in quality with some of the finest school bands of the countiy For this we must thank Mr. J. W. Wainwright, whose musical background personal interest in boys, and unflinching courage to carry through his ideas despite obstacles have made this possible. What a thrill it was to learn in 1923 that our band was judged the "best school band in the United States"', and in the following national contest the second best. We still follow with unusual interest ew ery contest in which "Jack's" band is entered. Last spring Mr Edwin Franko Goldman of New York City honored us by per- sonally conducting our band The band is one of the leading school activities. What school organization can boast of such a date book ? our band plays for the football games in a specially constructed band shell put pep into the Pep meetings, plays several Chapel programs yearly, renders regular Sunday afternoon concerts in season, heads Fostoria's gaudy parades not only fills several professional' out-of-town engagements, but on top of all this plays an extended spring tour oftentimes have several different concert programs "on tap". One can judge the calibre of these programs from the following numbers taken at random: "Oberon Overture", f'Atlantis", "Il Trovatore", and the "Grand American Fantasien.

The orchestra is composed of thirty-five members. A small fourteen piece orchestra selected by the director from the larger orchestra furnishes the music for the greater part of the high school activities such as chapel programs, the Community Lyceum Course films, debates, and art exhibits as well as for many outside engagements where a small orchestra is desired.

In addition to the regular music furnished for the Chapel ser- i vices, there have been many special marches provided, and numbers by various indi- a vidual players.

The Chorus "From rainbow clouds there flow not drops so bright to see, Hs from thy presence showers ll rain of melody." SHELLY. Under the direction of the music supervisor, Mr. L. G. Jones, the chorus has made much progress. Mr. Jones has shown great regard for the care and training of his students' voices, always seeking good tone quality rather than volume, although we feel sure that the chorus has both of these. The chorus this year consists of one hundred and thirty voices. The students have worked very hard and have accom- plished much. On Friday, January the twenty-fifth, as a number of the Community Lyceum Course, a very interesting program was presented consisting of a cantata, "Rip Van Winkle". In a series of delightful choruses and solo interludes this great favorite of fiction was followed through his many touching adventures. One very interesting feature of the season is the Eisteddfod, held in the High' School Auditorium, April the twenty-sixth. The students are working very hard and striving eagerly and earnestly for winner's honors and the cup. In this Eisteddfod, the Chorus and Glee Clubs compete with Ada, Bowling Green and Kenton. The number on which the members of the Chorus have been concentrating their efforts and time is "The Nightingale and the Rose", by Lehnert- Page. In addition to competing as a chorus in the Eis- tedfdfod, numerous members of the organization are entered in other contest numbers, taking part in solos, duets, trios and quartets. The Chorus has been organized, having as its officers: Presidenz . . . RUTH HARRIS Secretary MARGARET FLECHTNER Pianist . . . . ELIZABETH CARTER Note: As the Annual goes to press the editor is pleased to record that Fostoria has won First place in the Eisteddfod, and that the Chorus, last on the program, proved to be the deciding factor in this victory. The Girls' Glee Club also took first in its section. -..ggx:.,-. -sa .catch 2 e- A g . gr A Page Eighty-eight err a ri i F l l l E l 4 ,m 4 l l rf-.xi r PX 3. i9 ..a.1..aI , ,. A It at V,-1 ' 'V .

The Girls' Glee Club It has been said that "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." The Girls' Glee Club realizes this and turns to the power of music for joy and expression. Poets have told us that music has a magic power to sway the listener and stir the emotions of the soul beyond the reaches of the imagination. If our music club studies intensively perhaps it will gain this magic power. The Girls' Glee Club this year consists of forty-three members. Though the club began in September with an unusually large number of new members, we feel that by faithful work the same high standard of excellence has been maintained as was established last year. Under Mr. Jones' capable leadership, the Club has made several appearances in public. In a program for the Community Lyceum Course presented by the Music and Dramatic depart- ments the Club sang "The Bells of St. Mary'sl'. For the past three years the Glee club has taken part in the Eisteddford, one of the most inspiring musical events of the year. For several weeks the Club has been studying Negro spirituals. The Eisteddfod contest number this year is "No- body Knows De Trouble I've Seen." Elizabeth Carter is our accompanist. The of'l'ice1's of the Girls' Glee Club for 1928-1929 are: ELIZABETH CARTER ...,.. President BETTY BRICHTVVELL . Vice-President ELIZABETH H,-Xl,L Smvrtary-Treamrer , ARDEl,l,E K.fXRCHER . .

' The Club is known quite well to the citizens of Fostoria for it has made a num- i ber of public appearances on varied programs and the concerts have been enthusiast i tically received. Last year the Club won first place in the Eisteddfod and established a precedent worthy of striving to uphold. The members l the group first started rehearsals, forty voices comprised 4 the club, but due to the fact that the maximum number ' of voices eligible was somewhat smaller an elimination 1 method was used. Under the capable direction of Pro- fessor ,lones this group has made rapid progress in their rehearsals. The boys are working hard for lXIr. Jones, and he is putting in special periods of practice for the Club this 'Q year. Oflicers have been elected, with Harold lllahony, President, Edward Lee Jr., Vice-President, Fred Shaffer, Secretary, Dale Muir, Librarian. v 1 l ,,, , ,-..- -. .Q -1 ..- ...A-pq -. 3 ' aaavuf aiu!--. -47-L-A., ,arf---n -aamj Page Ninety-one V i 1 4 K are working diligently to win this title this year.

Senior Class Play It is the custom of each graduating class of Fostoria High School to give a Senior Class Play. This play creates quite a "furor" among students with dramatic ambitions. Among the underclassmen there is much conjecture as to what the play will be and who will be in it. The older people also look forward to it as eagerly as do the students, for they too have friends who may be in it. Its very high entertainment value cannot be underestimated. The play chosen for production this year is 'tThe Patsy" by Barry Conners, a romantic comedy of three acts. Patsy keeps the audience entertained with "wise-cracks" she is trying to learn in order that she may become popular. Tony does not realize that he is in love with her and innocently falls into the trap which he is teaching her to bait. Pop's anger at times becomes humorous by the fact of its intensity. All through the play we are touched by Pat's fairness and the way she stands up for the "Sportsman-like" thing in the face of difficulties. Miss Schaeffer, instructor in English and Public Speaking, will direct the play. Miss Schaeffer has had some considerable experience in directing plays and it is certain that the play will be a production worthy of note. Inasmuch as each class tries to outdo the preceding one, considerable interest is shown in putting it on. Former classes have produced among others, "Come Out of the Kitchen," "The XVhole Town's Talking" and "Merton of the Movies." The cast this year hopes to maintain the same standard of production which has been so notable in the past. Page Ninety-taco A s- ig!!! c A as ff-can A it ': H, nu- 1 a .-,,,,,--f . -.

A poet's wife l comes to Land's End, one night she and The WVill-o- l the-VVisp disappear, the country woman and the l ' maid watching them go, realize that one more victim 1 of the NVill-o-the-Wisp has gone forever.

"THE FLORIST SHOPU On January 25, the Glee Clubs and advanced Speaking , Class presented a program for the Lyceum Course. Under , the direction of Miss Schaeffer, with Virginia Kraft as l assistant, the Public Speaking Class presented "The Florist Shop". The plot centers around the effort of Maud, the florist's office girl, to draw trade by sending flowers to ' people whom she thinks will buy Howers in the future.

Aflirmative Debate Team This year under the supervision of the debate coaches, Miss Sutton and Miss Schaeffer, a new system of choosing the personnel of the debate team was put into practice. In former years, only members of the advanced public speaking class were allowed to, try out. This year, however, any student in the high school with the proper scholastic standing was permitted to compete. Due to the prolonged illness of Miss Sutton, the responsibility fell largely upon Miss Schaeffer. In spite of the late date and the various other difficulties that arose, Miss Schaeffer, with the help of llfliss Kelly, succeeded in turning out two successful debate teams. Miss Schaeffer and Miss Kelly were both well fitted for their Work. Miss Schaeffer is the teacher in the Public Speaking classes and has had considerable experience in debate, while llliss Kelly made a splendid record as a college debater. The question this year, although of unusual difliculty, proved to be of intense interest to all. The question was-"Resolved that the United States should cease to protect by force of arms, capital invested in foreign countries except after a formal declaration of war." The affirmative contended that the present policy of protection would be beneficial to the nation politically and economically. They emphasized the high cost of this military protection and the loss of Latin-American friendship. ln place of the present plan of protection, the afhrmative advanced the plan of arbitration and diplomacy.

The negative, in opposing any change in the present policy, maintained that this Q policy had not caused trouble in the past and that any change in this policy would be E detrimental to the interests of the United States. The negative argued that any N' treaty would be useless without force behind it and that we were obligated to protect foreign capital because of the Monroe Doctrine and because of a duty toward Euro- pean nations. Both teams were commended by the judges for the conviction, delivery 5 and stage presence. The Fostoria negative team opened the season with a non-decision debate with Delaware. The second debate was with Tiffin on February 14. The Fostoria nega- tive team defeated the Tiflin aflirmative team, while the Tiffin negative team won over the Fostoria afiirmative. On February 19, Fostoria engaged in the triangular debate of the season. Here the Fostoria teams failed to gain either decision. The affirmative team bowing to Lima Central and the negative team conceding the victory . to Findlay. On February 27, the Fostoria debaters ri divided honors with Bluffton. The Red and Black nega- ' tive team trampled over the Bluffton affirmative, while the j Bluffton negative defeated the Fostoria afiirmative after " a particularly close battle. The season closed by the Red Zi and Black debaters turning in a double victory over 1 Kenton. To summarize the season. the Fostoria team won four of the eight debates, making the record for the past several year thirty-three victories out of forty-eight con- tests. -c.4g.'i.im'4Ki3iGiWEr'3-11'-"'J:"k as-,Qg,:..s.au.i l 'N I e.. :.:.:.-11:-: 'ff:::1:e-::f:e'::.g.

I' The name Omicron Lambda, meaning "the speech" or "the discourse," was chosen for this organization. The objects of the organization are to promote effective public speaking and the use of good English, to stimulate public discussion on state and national questions, and to promote interest in the drama as an instrument of education. The membership of this organization consists of two classes, active and reserve. Any member of Fostoria High School having a scholastic average of "C" in all work, may upon application and successful try-out become a member of this organization. This club is striving to organize its meetings in regular order and is studying parliamentary law in order to familiarize itself with the proper rules of conducting a meeting. After completing this the club will begin work on plays and speeches. It is the ambition of the Club to stage a public program sometime before the end of the school term, On February 15, 1929 the following officers weI'e elected: Prmidfnf .......

Lambda Sigma 'tThe richest man is poor without a love for books." Believing this to be true, fifteen members of the junior class last year, acting under the influence of their American Literature instructor, Miss Bourquin, formed a Literary Club. , The name of the club consists of the Greek.words Lambda Sigma, meaning Literary Society. V For colors the members have chosen black and white.. symbolic of ink and paper of the world of literature. Because the sweet pea is a favorite of the writers it was selected as the club flower. The membership consists of girls from the three upper classes. The Faculty Advisors are Miss Van Ausdall and Miss Kelly, who have given much time and encouragement to the work of the club. This year the study of modern authors has been pursued. Some authors included in this - study are Warwick Deeping, Donn Byrne, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Christopher Morley, Carl , Sandburg, and Edith VVharton. The life of each author has been studied in an effort to more fully understand his inter- pretation of literature. Many interesting incidents in the lives of our authors have been found to be reflected in their writ- ings. Each member as her portion of the program is always re- quired to quote a selection from the work that is being studied. Miss Bourquin recently spent an evening with us and discussed the subject "Modern Poetry." Miss McDermott has also talked to us on "The Trend of the Modern Novel." l 4 r That the members have enjoyed the year's work goes without saying, and that it has been very profitable is no less evident.

In Fostoria a group of eight such boys organized themselves in 1922 into a Hi-Y Club, affiliated with the international Young Men's ,' Christian Association. Today the Club is composed of some twenty-eight juniors and Seniors, ' who have openly pledged themselves to support the purpose of the HI-Y: "To create, main- 'N tain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. The four planks of the platform, "Clean living, Clean speech, Clean athletics, and Clean scholarship," make the Hi-Y member foursquare. - l Realizing the responsibilities of the Club as a Christian organization the members exert every effort to make the organization as democratic as possi- + ble. The Hi-Y does not reach out for boys to joing it simply ' tries to set up objective standards of membership. with the idea that any upper-classman of F. H. S. who possesses these ' may be admitted into the organization. 1 4 ii Regular weekly meetings of the Club are held "to trans- act such business as may come before us., to fortify our hearts Q: through conference and Bible study, and to make ourselves as ' i ,. Hi-Y members of greater service to each other and to the community and school." The Club also has such special func- . . .. . . . r tions as an annual "Sweetheart Banquetg "Gymnasium meet- ings," and is looking forward to I1 special spring Father-and- -' Son meeting. Prmidmt .

Audubon Nitesak The Audubon Nitesak society has become a well established organization in our High School. In the autumn of 1927 a group of girls who had been awakened to the charm and beauty of nature decided to organize for the purpose of pursuing the study of this subject. Accordingly, much time was spent upon the details of organization. The motto chosen for the club is a quotation from an unknown author, "To love all nature." The purpose is well expressed in the following lines from our own nature poet, Bryant, "Go forth under the open skies and list to nature's teachings." The flower is the lily-of-the-valley, and the colors are green and white. In the spring of 1928 wild flowers were studied. An herbarium, now placed in the high school library, was made by the girls. The major part of this year, 1928-1929, has been de- voted to the study of the stars and constellations. The girls have greatly enjoyed and apreciated the illustrated talks given by their faculty adviser, Mrs. Bland. The spring of this year caused our thoughts to turn to another chapter in nature study. VVhen the first harbinger of spring arrived, it was natural that everyone's attention should turn to our feathered friends from the south who braved the cold snaps of late winter to herald the approach of spring. It is with keen interest and great expectation that we have launched upon the study of birds this spring. VVe have planned to do some scientific study at our regular Friday meetings during activity period, and we have also planned some field trips during the early morning hours when the songsters are at their best. The officers for this year are: Phyllis Conlon, Presidentg Elizabeth Hall, Vice-Presidentg Ruth Geere, Secretaryg liar- riet Andrews, Treasurer. At present there are thirty mem- bers. lt is hoped that this organization will carry on in years to come the ideals of the girls who founded it, and that it will continue nature study with the enthusiasm which was manifest this past year.

D. in its infancy, but when the I course was completed at the conclusion of its first year, 1918, the leaders from the fol- lowing class were chosen as members. Every year the same procedure is repeated and 'thus members have come and gone. F. M. D. has always stood for the highest possible standards. It is to be noticed that in some years only three students have been considered for membership in this honorary organization. For ten years the letters F. M. D. have been a secret is and unless disclosed by some member the meaning will never be known. Many stabs have been given, yes, even the teachers have tried to guess, but to no avail. F. M. D. leaves the big events for some other club of the High School while it does only little things not noticed by the rest of the High School. N0 praise and no glory is wanted by the F. M. D.g the satisfaction of doing the work well is enough. Mr. Knepper is our faculty adviser in Whom we put our trust and secrets. We, the members of the F. M. D. of the present era, wish him many more years as its Faculty Adviser. i The membership this year consists of only five, all L from the Senior class, as follows: President ....

Although there have been no serious accidents there is always possibility of , l 1 one. As the student leaves the building at noon and evening his mind is everywhere 'Al , but on where he is going. Moreover the noon dismissal comes just at the time when l trafiic is especially heavy from the factories in the northern part of town. ' E It was for these reasons that Mr. Baird turned to the Boy Scout organization , to handle the situation. The cooperation of the Fostoria local police and of Mr. Switzer was obtained. The scout ofiicers are excused from school a few minutes before dismissal and are stationed at the two intersections of High and lVIain and High and Perry Streets. There are also boys located at the driveways to handle 1 cars and bicycles coming from the parking spaces behind the building. Semaphores M procured from the city police department are used at both ' intersections and the Scouts are entrusted with ofiicial i N police authority. There are thirteen members on the squad. A regular , schedule has been drawn up so that each member has his "beat" and definite responsibilities. llfleetings are 4 occasionally held for considering such special traffic prob- - lems as may arise in the neighborhood of the school. The efiicient handling of the heavy traflic following the Q- E' football games in the fall is clear evidence that the boys "M 'Q t have taken their duties very seriously. Though this is the first year of traiiic regulation the 7 students have already realized the benefit they receive. v if J 'I . pp, I i 2 Y "':z:ff'e ...-.....,,.- 4...

' J The Type Slmgers Club The above named club has been formed recently from the group of young men enrolled in the Vocational Printing course for the purpose of encouraging interest in matters connected with printing. The Club has no close connections with other organizations in the school but cooperates in every possible way. Practically all the tickets, programs, filing-cards, school form-sheets, and pads, necessary for the regular routine work of the High School have been printed under the supervision of the Type Slingers. Various printed materials advertising our extra-curricular activities have also been planned l and printed by the members of this club. The Club plans visits to other allied trades of the printing industry, both at home and in nearby cities and towns. These visits and conferences are inspirations to all its members. The members also collect specimens of printing from every available source for the purpose of comment and criticism. lVIr. Morris, instructor in printing, is the adviser of the group.

Thrift Cashiers I' "Say it with a Bank Account" This year our banking percentages have soared to heights hitherto unattained. Banking has increased from 29.7Z in September to 97.51, in the third week in December, which was the highest average among the schools of Fostoria for that week. There is no doubt at all that this enormous increase is largely due to Mr. i Knepper's efforts. His approach to the students with his inimitable humor has Won more than one convert to Thrift. 5 The banking this year has been handled in a different manner than heretofore. There is in each home room a member of one of lVIr. Knepper's Bookkeeping classes to take charge of the banking in order that it may be handled in a more business-like r way. In rooms 328 and 329 there are four girls each under Maxine Danner and Velma Furman respectively. Dessa Munn is head-cashier for the High School and all deposits go through her 5 hands for a final check. The girls who have done this ' 1 work deserve unlimited credit, for their work is one of greatest benefit to the school. It is impossible to estimate the educational value of this Thrift system, but everyone can realize how much of an aid a bank account can be in a time of financial W 1 i l I I stress. We are sincere in our hopes that the enthusiasm ' H 3' O for Thrift will continue on the same level as has been -Q maintained this year, and our good wishes go to the l ,U . . 1 future students that they may bay it with a bank ac- count." 5 l 'J .ran-L -xiii .

It does not do away with the individual organiz- ation Treasurers. They will still collect and man- age funds to Mr. Knepper, teacher of Accounting, Who is in charge of the Centralized Accounting System. He audits and okeys all advance ticket sales and gate receipt reports. He is under bond, and keeps an accurate account of moneys that belong to each organization. All bills are paid by check, signed by Mr. Knep- per, endorsed by the Principal of the High School, and transmitted to the vendor by the Organization Treasurer. Bills cannot be incurred without a requisition from Mr. Knepper. This requisition carries a statement of funds on hand by the Organization to the High School Principal, so that he too, may be assured of sufficient funds, before signing the requisition blank. just as the check for the payment of a bill is conveyed to the vendor by the proper Organization Officer, so too the order for goods goes to the vendor through a designated organization officer. The Centralized Accounting System obviously has many advantages over the former Individual Treasurer Plan. It gives school authorities an accurate check on all financial transactions carried on by High School Organizations. It keeps all the funds definitely located and intact, and at the same time properly supervised. It makes possible a monthly statement to the Board of Education, as well as an annual or more frequent audit of all High School Organization funds. The work of Mary Fargo, who has handled the great amount of bookkeeping connected with the system, should not go without mention. Mary has done a most efHcient piece of work here, and should fill a place of considerable responsibility in some oHice next year. The Red and Black takes this opportunity of expressing its hearty endorsement of the new system. This one organization alone usually' handles between twenty-five hundred and three thousand dollars in the course of a year's business, and the value of having such a double checking and auditing of all of its transactions, with responsi- bility definitely fixed for the care of its accounts, should be evident at once. It is one of the most Worth-while improvements of the year. t A-,f.-...F:: az, 0 fi' ...W 4 - W - as is Page 0neHundredSix Q i, i 7 i- , X Wi ii QE! 72 Q! A si i L -7- Vf ,f l .

Seeking a bigger field he accepted the position of Coach and Director of st Athletics in the Fortoria School. 3 He brought with him a new style of both football E and basketball which he learned while attending Depaw University Where he had made a wonderful record as l an all-around athlete. He played two years of football and three of basketball, being chosen captain in basket- ball his senior year. Much of the success of the season was due to the ability of Mr. Hirt as a Held general. His work in building a high standard of sportsmanship among the I boys proved very effective. He taught the boys to be good losers as well as good winners. We feel that we have just passed a very successful season under the guid- I ance of Mr. Hirt. 3 Forced out of High School competition for violating 4 athletic rules, we were left to compete with college Fresh- l man teams. These teams proved usually to be bigger and Q, more experienced than High School teams and we feel that in winning three, losing two, and tying one, we have completed a season of which to be proud. FACULTY MANAGER BAIRD This was Mr. Baird's.first year as Faculty lVIanager at Fostoria High, and the job this year was a stiff and tedious one to fill. Our being suspended from the Ath- letic Asociation and not allowed to compete with other High Schools left Mr. Baird with a big job on his hands. He succeeded in bringing us out of a difficult situation by booking college Freshman teams. After all of the expense of bringing these teams here Mr. Baird managed to make some money and to pay for equipment besides. Much credit is due him for the fine way in which he handled the situation and for the first rate business ability he displayed in making the season financially suc- cessful. fl Wfe-eeeif'1evimf5v'.

Mr. Hirt came here with an entirely different system than the team had ever known before. It took long hours of practice and patience to introduce methods of play and a style so different. The boys soon found their "stride" and started l i functioning like veterans. The first big project they it encountered was defending the City Championship which they have held for the past three years. There i was but little trouble in defeating St. Wendelin by a l good margin. The next accomplishment was captur- Q ing the Seneca County Championship from the crafty junior Order Home aggregation of Tiffin. After a very fast and furious contest which was nip and ,tuck all the way through, the game ended with Fostoria with the large end of the score. This is considered a great honor this year in view of the hne record made by both Tiffin Columbia and the Junior Order both of whom won from many good teams in the course of the season. Both Roth and Doyle received berths in the All-County First Team and lNlcFadden on the Second Team-an unusual record for any High School team. Roth was also chosen as captain of the All-County team. Qur attention next turned to the District Tournament held at Sandusky, where Fostoria again upset the dope by trouncing the highly touted Fremont aggregation, which had been slated to take the Tournament "hands down." Unfortunately Fostoria was unable to continue a record so finely begun and fell rather easily before what seemed really to be a much weaker team than Fremont's. Thus ' we were eliminated from the Tournament and the season of 1928-29 was brought to a close. AUBURN LUHKING Student fllmzrzger, '29 "Aub" works as a student manager and deserves credit for the eflicient way he managed the affairs of the team.

Bob was always breaking up plays and getting the ball from the backboard. He was a cool and reliable player and his scoring came just when it was needed most. Bob is a one letter man, and also made the All-County basketball second team. One Ifillldiffd Sixteen HARRY ROTH Cenrer "Harry" is one of the best and most consistent jumpers our school has ever had. There were very few centers that got the tip-off from Harry this season. His Hoor- work and accurate passing place him among our best players. He never failed when a few points were needed. Harry made the All-County basketball team and is a two year man. CARL S LOSSER Right Guard A'Ossie", the other guard, is one of our big guards. He was always fighting for the ball and tying it up. No small part of his value as a player was due to his ability to get the ball from the backboard. His clever passing was a great help in the game. Ossie is a two letter man. : 4 N--., ...

He had a deep eye for the loop from the side of the floor. He could never get the ball from the back board but always tied it up when his opponent got the ball. This is Fritz's first and last year on the varsity. , i v 3 GEORGE LEONARD Right Forward "Andy" is another one of our six-footers. He was always fighting and played a good brand of ball when he was in the game. He never did much shooting but always passed the ball to a player in a better position than himself. This is his first year on the varsity and he should be a main cog in next year's team. - s . iq QQ, ,... . as Page One Hundred Seventeen X KENNETH BYERLY Guard ""'sw. at r ya - K ' - - lxen , a Hashy young player with good stuff in him, has shown his art from time to time.

He is a good basket tosser and handles the ball well. YVAYN is ROB ERTSON Fgrwfml Allied", although he did not get into many of the big games, showed plenty of fight when he did. Red is a hard worker and has a good eye for the loop. He should be a great asset to next year's team. ALBERT RICFADDEN .

' V a The 1929 Track Team f 3 In the year 1928 a belief got into circulation that Fostoria High was not using all its athletic talent and on the basis of this belief a track team was formed. The 7 team, although it met with hardships at every turn, kept up its practice until the last few days of school in May, l928. The Seniors on that team left with a satisfaction '.. that they had helped bring Fostoria's name into the field of spring athletics. An Indoor Track Team was organized soon after the close of the basketball 5+ season for the purpose of getting into condition for the spring events. One dual X meet with Scott High School was held and although out-pointed, several Fostoria 1 men displayed exceptional ability. The Outdoor Track T l and Field Team started its final training season the Y ' first week in March. They entered into this last practice X season with a great fighting spirit and determination to make this year one always to be remembered in Fostoria High School. Our Faculty llflanager, Mr. Baird, has drawn up a very interesting schedule for track this year-dual meets with Mansfield, Waite High of Toledo, Lima South, and entries in the invitation meets at Defiance, the North 5 Vvestern lileet at Toledo, and the Ohio State Relays. i " An important factor in whatever success the team achieves this spring is Coach "Tiny', Hirt, in whom all the boys 5 have great confidence. He is especially well qualined to coach these sports.

Girls' Athletic Association Several girls of the High School having a common interest in athletics decided under the supervision of llliss lVIonegan to organize a new club. The purpose of this club is to promote the interest of girls' athletics in the High School. The aim of this organization was so popular that the membership soon sprang to nearly seventy in number. Although tlIe club is new it has been very active. Basketball teams were selected and inter-class games were held from which a girls' team representing Fostoria High School was chosen. TlIis squad played a full schedule of games with neighboring High Schools. The Association also took charge of the pop and candy stand at games played on the home Hoot. ln order to get mem- bers better acquainted witlI one another the Association has had two enjoyable mixers in the High School Gym. In February the girls met and decided that since the basketball season was over it was time to decide on some spring sports. The vote was cast for volley ball and kick ball. A class in folk-dancing was also suggested as feasible. Every Monday night this spring tlIe girls have had a track practice.

Girls' Basketball Team This year, for the first time in many years, Fostoria High School was again represented on the basketball floor by a team of girls. This being the first year, the girls did not have a very successful season as to the number of games won, but have gained experience and knowledge, which will prove a great asset to those who will remain next year. Aside from learning many of the fine points of the game, they learned to be good sports and in the face of many defeats were not discouraged, but looked forward to the next game with hope. Dorothy Johnson as captain did her part to uphold the spirit of the team with her never-failing smile. The team was very alert and willing to work, but inexperienced as it was it could not be expected to play against a team with a record of victories and remain on the winning side of the fence. Only two of this year's team will be lost with gradu- ation, "Binney" Danner, and "Foxyl', leaving a number of girls who have had experience in the game. In spite of the loss of "Binney" and "Foxy'i, the girls are looking forward to a peppy team and a good season next year. Miss ltionegan, instructor in Physical Education, coached the team in a fashion that won the best efforts from the girls. She is to be highly commended for the patient guidance with which she handled the novices. She is well liked by the team and it is certain that her good, kindly nature kept the team going when going looked bad.

Certainly its publication would not be possible but for the loyal support of the business and professional men of Fostoria. They have made it possible for the students of Fostoria High School to buy their books at a reasonable price, and in doing so have given one more evidence of their interest collectively and individually in this project of the school. That Fostoria has a phenomenal industrial future before it, no observer can doubt. In the first place Fostoria is a city of railroads. Its six trunfk line railroads and four electrical interurban roads provide it with direct connections with cities in every direction,-with' Toledo and Detroit, with Fremont, Sandusky, and Norwalk, with Cleveland and Buffalo, with Washington, with Tiffin, Bucyrus, and Columbus, with Cincinnati, Lima, and Findlay, and lastly with Indianapolis, St. Louis, and Chicago. Thus Fostoria's eighty-odd industrial concerns can scarcely lack convenient ac- cess both to sources of raw material and to markets. The importance of this fact can hardly be overestimated in accounting for F ostoria's recent industrial growth. That Americrfs third largest cor- poration should build ai 53,000,000 addition to its already large subsid- iary branch plant located here and that many other nationally known plants should be announcing programs of expansion in branches located here gives unmistakable evidence that F ostoria's advantageous situation is being rec- ognized. Nor should we neglect to mention the growth of the city's two hundred and twenty-five business houses, pointing in the same direction, and the recently announced record volume of business cared for in the Post 0566. These facts make clear the appropriateness of the industrial theme. which has been used in our book this year. It is the sincere wish of the Staff that "The Red and Black" may be worthy of the continued support of the men of Fostoria.
