The School Board
DR. J. L. 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.

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.

QED and ISLACIQ
"A man is a bundle of relations, a knot of roots 'whose flower audi
fruitage is the world."
To the Senior Class of 1929
Each year of your school life has brought to you added difliculties and responsi-
bilities to the end that most, if not all, of you are conscious of those inter-relationships
and inter-dependencies which make possible the freedom and happiness of mankind.
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.

The English Department
The work of this department seeks first to provide, through training in both
oral and written English, greater command of communication and facility in self-
expression. The establishment of right habits in the matter of composition is regarded
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.

The Language Department
Latin study not only provides the background for a better understanding of our
laws and institutions, but also forms the basis for a real appreciation of what the
English language is. The study of the social customs of the Romans is stimulated
through the use of interesting projects and such illustrative materials as pictures and
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.

Art and Music
In the Art Department an effort is made to develop the student's appreciation
of the beautiful qualities of his everyday environment, and to establish standards of
good taste. 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
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.

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.

The Commercial Department g gg
The function of the Commercial department is to provide vocational training
for students who expect to enter the business world. This end is reached through the .
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.
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.

The Household Arts Courses offer an opportunity for Junior and Senior High
School Girls to learn the practical and theoretical factors essential to successful home-
making, and to develop an interest in ideals of right living and a feeling of responsi-
bility for the health and happiness of the home.
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.

1 Physical Education and Qflice 1 l
The new Physical Education must fit the boy or girl to the new age. 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
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
1 that come up in school administration. i Q

The general aims of Fostoria Junior High School are to bridge the gap between
the elementary grades and the senior high school, and to care for the peculiar
problems incident to early adolescence. 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
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,
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-

Aims and Methods e
tions and possibilities are constantly considered and special talents and trends
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

oflicer, orator and representative are greatly appreciated by the class of '29. He has y
done much to make this organization a success.
Vice-President ...... MARY FARGO I
Mary's soft voice and qualities of leadership have always been ready in time of i
need. She has acted as somewhat of a buifer when there was such a need. R
Secretary ...... PEG FLECHTNER l
No one doubts the ability of Peg in the capacity which she has so faithfully
served. Her Work has done much to keep the class in the right way.
Treasurer ..... ALBERT THORNTON
We would have undoubtedly been in bad straights at times if Albert had not been
there to help us. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Few treasurers are as con-
scientious and persistent and -yet as pleasant as he.

My Magic Mirror
Why doth It so, and so, and ever so,
This 'Ui6'LU1B5S, zfoiceless, Turner of
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."
,, -,.,,,mmp,,,,-,,-.-. L 5 LL tj ia-. ,i ..-..---
everyone is--yet deliciously thrilled along with it. Why, look at that great tall lady

The picture fades and the following four spokes pass rather swiftly in review.
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
The picture leaves us with the im-
pression of gayety, and then our ninth
spoke is coming into sight.

These last four are, of course, the clearest, largest, and most interesting of all.
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

more than one memorial to Fostoria
High. 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
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.

There are many Juniors on the Red
and Black lVIonthly as well as on the
i Annual Staff. 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
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

with the afiirmative team, two other seniors, Lavonne Cramer and Lois Gorrill, are
unable to debate because of illness. 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.

It was on a rainy, drizzly Monday morning in September of nineteen twenty-
four that the class of ninteen thirty first assembled. 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
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.

Another innovation of unestimable value was the weekly assembly program.
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-
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.

The main courses of study from which each student made his choice were the
college preparatory, commercial, industrial, and general. These were designed to '
give everyone the greatest freedom possible in preparing for any professional or busi-
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

ln the regular course of study the students have carried themselves in a manner
worthy of their rank.
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
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.

the eighth grade in nineteen-twenty-six, only thirty-two dropped out, leaving one

tion to its fulfillment Ilext year.

History of the Sophomore Class
Well, we are Sophomores now. 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.

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
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.

Last October, we held our first class meeting. 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. S.

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

weeks we were given some peace and We are waiting for the time when we shall
dominate the freshmen.
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
This class rates high in scholarship and we hope to be a real asset to Fostoria
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.

The Red and Black Annual
,. 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
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.

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-

i The Band
A school without a band is like a new car without gas." 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
The boys from the grades in the band picture are
those whom Mr. Wainwright has personally selected as
ones who have given satisfactory service in the Junior
Band Mr. Simons deserves much credit for his eflicient
organization and direction of this little band which nurses
our big one. We are happy to know at this time that

The High School Orchestra
The orchestra under Mr. Wainwright's direction has given concerts this season, playing
such music as Schubert's 'iUnfinished Symphonyog "Ballet Music" from Faustg "Rosamunde
Overturel' by Schubert, and Hjean d' Arc" by Verdi.
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.

, The Junior High School Orchestra
i The Junior High School Orchestra under the direction of Miss Claire Ordway
has made real progress this year in spite of the fact that it has had but one period a
E week for rehearsal. 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 Orchestra has proved of great help in chapel singing and we
X feel that it is playing an important part in our school life.
The members of the Junior High Orchestra are:

"From rainbow clouds there flow not drops so bright to see,
Hs from thy presence showers ll rain of melody."
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.

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

The Boys' Glee Club
Among the musical organizations of our high school one of the most interesting
is the Boys' Glee Club. '
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

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.

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

of protection would be beneficial to the nation politically
and economically. They emphasized the high cost of

diplomacy. If arbitration should fail, the affirmative

then advised the use of an international police force in connection with the world
Q, court. 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

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,

'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."
That the members have enjoyed the year's work goes
without saying, and that it has been very profitable is no less

In nearly every High School there will he found certain boys who stand out clearly for
Christian ideals of living in everyday school life. 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. -
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
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 '
Hi-Y members of greater service to each other and to the
community and school." The Club also has such special func-

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.

The student body can not remember the F. M. 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
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.
The membership this year consists of only five, all
L from the Senior class, as follows:

li Traffic Cops 5
ll, The school 'trafiic force was organized by Mr. Baird at the beginning of the ll
5 year. 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
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
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.

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
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.

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
stress. We are sincere in our hopes that the enthusiasm ' H
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-

The New Centralized Accounting System
i The Centralized Accounting System that Was
organized this year, provides for the handling of all
organization moneys, through one checking account,
under the name of High School Organizations fund.
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.

"Tiny" came to us from Defiance Where he had com-
pleted a successful year in athletics. 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-

The 1929 Basketball Season
ln looking over the past Basketball season under
the guidance of Mr. Hirt, we feel that we have had a
very successful season, and that the team has made a
record that we may well be proud of.
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
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
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.

Bois MCPXADDEN Leff Guard
"Bob'l, one of our pair of guards has held many a for-
ward down to a few points. 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.

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
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.

WILLIAM DOYLE Left Forward
"lVIope" is one of our six-footers and is one of the
best forwards that Fostoria has ever produced. His
accurate shooting has made him high point man of the
season. Swift passing, dribbling, and handling of the
ball made him a most outstanding player. This is his
second year and he has one more to play. Mope made
the All-County basketball team.
FRED SHAFFER Right Forward
"Fritz", our small forward, was right there with the
old fight. 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. ,
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.

has shown his art from time to time. He is not so large
but that makes no difference for he can play 'em big or

do much next year. 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.

"Babe'l is a sophomore, a hard lighting, clean player,
and a snappy floor man. Babe is great material and has
shown his fast playing at every opportunity. ln the two
years to come, Babe will be one of our best players.

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
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. GERALD FLING 1,

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
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
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.

To Our Patrons
HE Stagf of "The Red and Black" feels that this "Patron" section
of the Annual is one of the most important parts of the book.
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
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.
