GAIN the Red and Black Annual has gone to press. This year the staff feel as though
they are giving the students of Fostoria High a much better and different type of
Annual. which they will enjoy.
The theme chosen for the Annual this year, is that of the three seasons, Fall, Winter,
and Spring. By using this theme we completely change the style of the book, and divide
the Annual into three sections.
The lirst section of the book is Fall. In this part of the book you will find the football
and freshman pictures.
The next section of the book is Winter. In this part of the book you will find the
sophomore and junior classes and their histories. Here also are the various clubs and
The last division of the Annual is Spring. This section is devoted to the seniors,
containing the senior class history and prophecy, members of the class, and the senior clubs.
We hope you will enjoy the way the Annual is arranged this year, as we tried to give
the students something new. The success of the Annual is not due to the staff alone, but
mainly to the splendid support of the student body. I want to take this opportunity on
behalf of the staff to thank the student body for their support, also Miss Bourquin and the
Scrivener's Club for their help in the write-ups of the Annualg and Miss Crawford and Mr.
Kreischer, the advisors, for the amount of work and time they gave to insure a good book.

To THE PARENTS OF THE SENIOR CLASS:
S we owe our existence to our parents we also owe to them the general trend of our
traits and our welfare thus far. They are the ones who are closest to us, for we are a
continuation of their lives, further links in this chain of life that extends to the
millenniums. So to the ones to whom it will mean more than to anyone else, to you, our
Mothers and Fathers, whom we love, we are dedicating this Annual as the Symbol of our
Catching our breath almost with tears we realize that this is life and how strange it is.
How strange and seemingly useless the struggles and wretchedness that we know you have
not escaped entirely and that we shall not escape entirely. For you and for ourselves, now
carrying forward the life you have given us we feel a mingled love, pity, and sympathy,
born of a new understanding.
Did we say that life is sad? There is no reason under the sun why it should be. We
are young, strong, and confident, the world is immensely beautiful and gladdeningg and
we have dreamed. Our dreams, perhaps you, our Mothers and Fathers, know or have
guessed, are made from earth and sky, realization of our own Genius and of the Good Angel
within us. They are now like bridges of mist rising from the earth, and extending through
heaven, but shall finally become stone, as firm and lasting.

board of education ......
URING the past few years much has been heard and read of the need of balancing public
and school budgets. The necessity of this has been recognized by educators as well as by
taxpayers, but there should be a limit to the curtailment of educational opportunity just
as there was formerly a limit to the pyramiding and piling up of needless public expenditures.
Our board of education does not believe that it is the desire of the citizens and taxpayers
of this community and state to handicap our children of today and our citizens of tomorrow by
withdrawing and withholding from them full opportunity for the training and development of
mind, body and character, which are even more needed in times of economic disturbances and
social problems, than in time of prosperity and contentment. Money spent for the education of
our children cannot be considered as wasted or expended without a chance of yielding any return
on the investment. But, unfortunately, due to the shouting and broadcasting of a comparative
handful of "tax reduction at any cost" group, the entire system of public education, from the
grade schools to the universities, is threatened by such ruthless and unwarranted cutting of
income as to leave its black marks, if not stopped, upon the lives of those whom we expect to
solve our problems of the future. Will our present youth be prepared to do the things we will
expect of them in another generation if we, the citizens of today, deny them the opportunity for
preparation? Are we overlooking the proper balancing of lives in favor of the balancing of budgets?
Thanks to the unselfish co-operation and spirit of the entire school staff-executives,
teachers and employees, we have been able to meet conditions as they exist and to operate the
schools to date within its materially reduced income. True, it has been necessary to make some
regrettable changes and eliminations but we believe that the citizens of Ohio and of Fostoria will
rally to the support of the schools and enable its representatives to restore soon several of the
valuable activities which are conducive to the best interests of our boys and girls.
On behalf of the citizens whom we represent, we take this opportunity of congratulating
the largest class in the history of our schools - the graduating class of 1934. It is our sincere
hope that the lives you will live and the services you will render in whatever line of endeavor you
pursue, will be to the credit of your school training, your teachers, your parents and yourselves.

Miss Ida McDermott
Dear Miss McDermott:
HE passing years bring many changes, and although each revolving season
deepens and enriches the experience and knowledge of mankind, it may be
also instrumental in parting friends. Frosty winter reluctantly leaves its
place for spring, and that season' opens all school doors, letting book-weary
students out: but after a pleasant Vacation when summer cools into autumn,
neither you nor we will be going back to this school again. Perhaps it will seem
as strange to you, after your long experience as teacher and principal, not to be
listening for the forty-five minute bell or going through the daily round of lessons,
as it will to us, and perhaps you will miss us as much as we shall surely miss you.
We feel a sort of kinship with you because we are leaving this building
together, as teacher and students. We are hoping that you will remember us
particularly, along with the other classes you have helped so creditably through
their last year of high school, since we are your last class.
Sometimes we are a bit headstrong, or somewhat hasty and intolerant,
needing the little tempering and advice which you have so wisely given. Perhaps
this is the best place to thank you and to tell you that we have appreciated your
thoughtful attention to our needs and your sympathetic guidance. We have
needed your encouragement,
"Then forward I bid you, nor fail
Nor yield what you hold in your hand,
For the wind that now blows in your sails
Will blow you to land -"
for we are beginning to realize how uncertain these years are, and that nothing
in living is as fixed as the north star.
You have taught us not only English literature, but many more things:
ever comprehensive of different aspects of life you have given us a greater incen-
tive to beauty, integrity, and idealism than we had before.
In this world populated by so many human beings, in this life: lovely,
burlesque, commonplace and tragic, our courses have happened to coincide, yet
we are ever impelled onward in our voyage:
'The bows turn, the freighted ship tacking speeds
away under her grey sails,
The beautiful and noble ship with all her precious
wealth speeds away gaily and safe.
But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard
Ship of the body, ship of the soul, voyaging,

freshman class history .......
lt was a great day for the world when all the proud mothers took their kiddies
to school one bright September morning in 1925. We didn't make such a
mark on the history of knowledge those first six years, but soon good old
Father Time said it was our turn to try junior High.
we were hindered by new routines, impressive upperclassmen, and not so
long before this we had thought we were invulnerable. But, by the time we made
the eighth step we were taking the East wing by storm. We so excelled the others
that the School Board found it unnecessary to graduate us into High School, We
when the class of "37" entered the portals of higher education and achieve-
ment, the institution got a "New Deal". Of course we took the "razz" for being
so nonplussed and stupid, but as Freshmen we knew we were the lowest fourth.
We managed to keep up the grade reports, and in the meantime, get into all the
clubs in which we were allowed, although we were not given the opportunity
to chime in on all the school activities. We are proud of our fellow classmate,
Helen Harrison, who won for us in the tryouts for the Eisteddfod.
we members of the 1937 graduating class will be proud to say we launched
our cruiser on unknown seas in 1933. A beginning of a World recovery, one
hundred and sixty freshmen started equipping themselves in improved surround-
ings, the new bleachers were in the making, a re-paint job all over the building,
and a general upward trend. O, yes, another innovation - Freshman Players!
We organized in the middle of the year under the direction of Miss Crafts.
Take care, you who missed dramatic training in your Frosh year. We're coming
up, and it won't be long!
The deck has been passed
out, shuffled, cut, and an-
other deal is in the making
-- a.new Sophomore class.

high school band ............
gain this year the F.H.S. Band distinguished itself as one of the leading organizations in
the school. This was done through the direction of Mr. E. E. Smith, faithfulness of the
boys and the "Band Mothers". The band practiced from 8:00 until 9:15 every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday morning.
the Mothers of the boys in the band have given a great deal of time in helping to make
our band what it is. They gave a benefit bridge, ice cream social, and sold pop-corn at the
football games to raise money for new uniforms, music and instruments. They also helped.
to furnish transportation to the football games.
last October the band won first prize at the Findlay N.R.A. parade. The Kiwanis Club
was responsible for the transportation at this time.
these pieces have been purchased this year:
The Enchanted Castle ................... ..... H adley
Valse Triste ............. .... S ibelius
Ballet Music from Faust ..., .... G ounod
Heart Wound ..... ..... .... G r ieg
Last Spring ....., .... G rieg
Symphony in B ....,.... ....,. F auchet
American Patrol ........... .............. .... i M eacham
Light Cavalry Overture ......................................... Suppe
the Band made a number of public appearances. At the football games the Band inspired
the crowds with music and stunts between halves. A concert was given in the high school
assembly during January, and Sunday afternoon concerts were given in March and April.
the Band attended the contest at Bluffton, on April 5. On April 27, the boys joined other
high school bands in a Band Festival at Sandusky. -d CALVIN MARSHALL

"Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." - WILLIAM CONGREVE
he finest musical assembly is the symphony orchestra. Music is the divinest of the fine arts,
therefore the highest expression of art in which Fostoria High School students may par-
ticipate, is its own symphony orchestra, conducted by the head of the music department,
Mr. E. E. Smith.
this well balanced organization, consisting of twenty-four strings, five brasses, seven
woodwinds, and four percussion instruments, made great progress in the past year.
a group of fifteen members constitute the "pit" orchestra, which played for the weekly
assembly programs and for all the other entertainments given in the school. This year they
also played for the Roosevelt dinner.
interest in this group was shown by the appearance of the members on the platform at
eight o'clock on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Much time was spent on the contest
number, "The Enchanted Castle" by Henry Hadley.
it is no light thing to leave an orchestra in which one has played for six years, and the
Seniors look back upon their work with a feeling of deep regret on leaving it. It is not likely
that many of them will ever lose interest in the music which has been so much a part of them
in their school years, and which will be a source of recreation and enjoyment in years to come.

the boys who were lost by graduation in June 1933 were greatly missed and

. . . . . . . an injun story
a saga of the warpath, red and black on the touchdown trail.
. chapter I
1 n the first battle of the season, Fostoria Highs' Redmen took on the neighbor-
ing tribe of Mohawks, with elusive "johnny" Rossman and their multitudes
of passers, the enemy was ever dangerous. At the half, St. VVendelins'
invaders held a slim margin of one point. This called for action, and medicine,
or maybe the braves held a war-dance, but a different sort of team came out for
the second half. The Redskins plunged and bucked to the goal line, not once,
but four times. With pass after pass the Sharfmen tried to close the gap, but
the Red and Black could defend as well as charge. The game ended 33 to 7.
fostoria was far from a smooth-working, perfectly "clicking" team, but
even this early the Warriors showed their stamina and fight, the closing drive
which carried them on through a successful season.
next was the Braves task to repel an invading army, the Rossford Bulldogs.
The invaders soon showed their right to the title of Bulldogs, for after gaining a
six point lead, they held Fostoria stubbornly at a safe distance from the fatal
stripe. But the wild Indians would not be tame forever and in the fourth period,
Shearer scored. The slim margin of the extra point brought Fostoria a 7 to 6
victory. In a desperate last drive, Rossford sought to score, but the gun found
them still outside the danger zone. The Redmen gained 98 yards from rushing,
Rossford only 25, but the high point of both teams' work was the defensive play,
which left little room for scoring.
fremont was next, and this is the time for all good Redskins to weep for
their Alma Mater. With Binkley leading the way, the Fremont team followed
him, to the tune of 19 to 6. Our braves were not entirely without honor, however,
for the last half was Fostoria's. Injured early in the game, Chief Shearer came
back to count coup once, and lead his men to the shadow of the goal-posts more
than once. Fostoria could gain, and gain they did, but the marker seemed farther
away after each attack. Even in defeat all was not lost, for again the Warriors
closed with a drive which, though short of victory this time, boded ill for the next
Redskin foe. '
chapter I V
our braves enjoy their hunting, so when the Lima Tiger invaded tribal
territory, all hands turned out for "Happy Hunting." In the first three quarters,
a Lima Safety was the only score. Neither team could find the goal line, defense
seemed the order of the day. This couldn't go on forever, and our Braves were
the ones to change it. On a veritable last quarter war-dance, VVhitman and
Slick, Shearer and Vogel, seemed to take turns at gaining. On a series of runs,
f'Big George" broke up the ball game with the first marker. One taste of blood
was not enough for the Indians, however, and the old Tomahawk Tosser, "Slip-
pery" Slick, ended the game with a pass to Del Roberts. Final score, 14 to 2.
this was only a beginning, the power promised before now really appeared.
Lima South was the first to feel it, but not the last.

toledo Whitmer now advanced against the Tribe. Their advance inspired
little fear in our warlike Braves, who opened ceremonies with touchdowns by
Herrig and by Roberts, both on end around plays. At a later stage, Toledo took
heart, and scored on a great 82 yard march down the f1eld. Naturally, this
"riled" the Warriors, and Medicine Man VVhitman strolled to the goal line with
one of Slick's passes. Not satisfied with this, the Tomahawk Tosser helped him-
self to a 57 yard run and the final score of the game Fostoria 25- Whitmer 7.
Though far from a close contest, the Whitmer game again gave promise of what
was to come.
tiring of familiar haunts, the bold VVarriors entered Tiffin. They found the
enemy waiting in ambush and our braves were quite "good Injuns" during the
early stanzas. The closing moments of the half brought the scent of the goal posts
and the third quarter found our Warriors out for blood. VVith little delay Chief
Shearer led his men to the goal line. One plunge scored a marker, and the extra
point tied the score. Fostoria kicked off and a few moments of battle found the
Juniors holding the ball deep in their own territory. As the punt started, Bob
Martin was through the line. He blocked the kick, the ball bounded to Del
Roberts. Warrior Roberts immediately departed for the goal line and the extra
point made a 14 to 7 score. The Redskins were on top and had no intentions of
being displaced, grounding passes and smothering runs all through a hectic last
period, they finished in their winning stride. Shearer's long arms stopped one
thrilling Junior run, and Dick Harris seemed to reach enemy passes before the
receiver started. Final score was 14 to 7.
fresh from the Tiffin victory, the Redskins fell upon Kenton. Many scalps
were already captured and many more the Warriors added. The first quarter was
Fostoria's, twenty points in twenty plays. Marshall scored in the second, with
the entire "sub" line-up playing. They stayed in for the third period and experi-
enced little difficulty till the quarter ended, 26 to 0. Then the fun began in truth.
With the Varsity returned to the game, three scores were chalked up in the closing
stanza. A speedy dash by Harris stopped Kenton's only scoring threat. Herrig,
with half the line watching him, still managed to spend most of his time in the
midst of the enemy backfield. Shiley was a veritable Terror on offense and as
solid as oak on the defensive side. Scoring was almost evenly divided, with Slick
scoring twice and passing to Roberts for another. Shearer tallied twice, Vogel
and Marshall once each. Eddie Vogel's forty-five yard runback of a kick-off was
another of the shining lights. The gun found the score at 45 to 0.
the Touchdown Trail next led to Bee-Gee territory. Although playing on
a wet field, the warriors lost no time in opening fire. "Slippery" Slick passed to
Whitman for "first blood." Pushing close to the goal as the period closed, the
first play of the next stanza sent George Shearer through center for another
marker. Fostoria then kicked-off to the Bob-Cats, received a punt on the Indian
forty-yard line, and Score Number Three came after a series of steady gains.
Slick chalked up the marker. Another kick-off, another punt, and F ostoria's
ball on her own forty-two yard line. Shearer took the ball on the first play and
departed for the "Happy Hunting Grounds." Climaxing another series' of gains,
Eddie Vogel scored the final touchdown early in the third quarter.
cold air and muddy field, but the Indians brought home fresh Bob-cat
pelts and, incidentally, a 34 to 0 victory.
facing toward the Findlay game, Fostoria entered a costly conflict with
Napoleon. Both scores were Shearer's work, but the injury of Eddie Vogel in the
early stanzas kept the score to a lower level than it might have been. The game
was marked by roughness, Vogel, Whitman, and Martin being handicapped in
the Findlay tilt by the injuries received. Fostoria made 17 first downs to 3 for
the visitors, and led by far in all departments of play. VVith two regulars out
during a considerable part of the contest, Fostoria yet was able to score twice
for a 14 to 0 victory.

in the closing game of the season, a crippled band of Warriors engaged the
Findlay tribe. The battle brought our Redskins no Laurels of Victory, but no
team ever fought harder against defeat. The "breaks" were not for Fostoria and
the score was nine to nothing, but there is more to a game than the score can tell,
and courage the Braves did have. Every player, whether Varsity or Sub, gave his
best for the team, and a Hghting team need never be ashamed. we could be proud
of our teams' spirit if the boys had never won a game, but the record of 1933 is
a high one for any team. Eight victories were the Redskins', and only two defeatsg
the score in points was tripled for our Braves.
closing the season of ,'33, measuring both record and men, we are proud of
our Team and of our Coach.

Like the Student Managers, these faithful supporters of the team receive but

for the entire group and, as all are undergraduates, the VVarriors are assured of
good support for the coming seasons. Ample proof of their ability lies in the
response given by the fans. Peppy cheering is found only under peppy leaders,

sophomore class .history . . .
n September 8, 1924 our band of little people tripped merrily off to school.
Although the first grade seemed new and strange, we soon accustomed
ourselves to the daily routine. Before us loomed a mythical mountain
appropriately named "Education",
time passed slowly while we acquired the basic facts of education. Then
we began to learn faster so that by the time we had passed through the sixth
grade, we had a secure foothold on the narrow path leading up to the summit.
the look in our faces was a puzzled one. Junior High was at our feet. We
were together, we were timid, curious, unknown, yet, we pressed ever onward.
We continued to learn and we drew the attention of the classes around us. No
sooner did we become used tothe building, the teachers, and the various rooms,
than we found ourselves in the eighth grade. The year slipped by quickly and
we had our commencement. We, the last class to have a graduation exercise
from the Junior High, passed in a blaze of glory. We were winding higher up
the mountain, the trails were narrow and stony - the goal was visible farther up.
after a short vacation we returned to school as Freshmen. Promptly we
were dubbed ."Freshies" and "Greenhorns", but we were undaunted. Some of
our number went out for athletics, others joined the numerous clubs, while some
stayed back for scholarship. As the months passed the attention of the upper
classes became focused upon us. We were no longer 'fFreshies" but the "Class
of 1936". We had proved ourselves worthy of our positions.
now, we are known for our good records and we are represented in all
activities. Some are gaining places on the athleticsquad, others haveranked on
the scholarship teams. Ever looking forward we will reach the peak. Then, on
that memorable day, we will proudly announce to the world that we are the
"Class of i1936". Until
then we shall continue to
climb through the remain-
ing grades leaving behind us
a blaze of glory. JOHN WADE

junior class history . . .
hree score and one years ago the first Junior Class of Fostoria High School
made its debut. This junior Class is not large but quality counts.
briefly sketching their school career we find that during the first six years
they awaited the time when they could come to Junior High. Then they were
admitted to the seventh grade. Between dodging detention slips and reprimands
and stopping to drink at the fountains, they managed to get through. The
eighth grade commencement was a glorious affair - a beginning of greater things.
after a few weeks when they had become accustomed to the large halls, the
bells and the numerous places in which to get lost, they found that they were
needed in the school and so they immediately began to do their duty. For the
first time Freshmen were allowed in Girl Reserves. Beside adding to the member-
ship list of the Home Economics Club, they supported their own club, the Fresh-
man Players, band and orchestra, chorus and glee club.
the Sophomore year proceeded quite peacefully. They had now adapted
themselves to the school activities and knew all their teachers and class rooms.
Choosing scarlet and grey for their colors, they organized their class in each home
room. Added to their Freshmen activities they had Scriveners, a newly organized
literary club and Singers Club, a musical organization. As Sophomores they
supported the Red and Black Journal, the Magazine and Red Cross campaigns.
at last, in this school career sketch we come to the juniors. They supported
the many school organizations during the three years and have had an import-
ant part in football and basketball. The Class play was a big success and the
Juniors proved themselves to be actors as well as students. The greatest event
of the year seemed to be the Junior-Senior Prom.
This Junior class was a
"New Deal". In every way
cooperating with their tea-
chers and fellow students
and all in all they "did their
part". - SARAH KINKER

hrills, chills, and shrills of terror! A maniac, a master criminal, a beautiful
actress, the scion of a wealthy family, his haughty dowager Mother,
a reporter, a blundering detective, a woman mystic, a colored maid, a girl bellhop,
and an Irish Janitor all meet in the same city at the same theatre on the same
night. Nothing more need be said, just let your imagination run its wildest and
the result will be the plot of A'The Flash"l
in presenting this play the junior class succeeded in giving this year's best
thriller. It had those in the audience screaming and gasping all evening only to
leave them dumb-founded in the end, for the whole thing turned out to be nothing
but a dream.
but it was certainly an exciting dream that the reporter had. While romance
grew and Hourished between the lovely actress and the wealthy young man, he
managed, by scientific methods, to capture the Flash, who proved to be none
other than the seemingly stupid detective investigating the murder of the old
doorman of the theatre. But just as he was preparing to hand his catch over to
the police the dream and the play ended in a Flash.

. . an. injun story
irst foe of the Redskins was a strong Marion Harding team. Lack of experience
was the chief handicap of the locals, the play going just about as the twenty-
nine to fourteen score indicates. The early stanzas belonged almost entirely
to Marion, but the Warriors found the hoop more easily toward the close.
Although outplayed, Fostoria showed promise of a dangerous team which the
experience of later contests might develop. One high point of the game was the
playing of Karl Strouse, who was high scorer with nine of the Redskin tallies.
- The first act is not the play, nor the first game, the Season.
prospects became brighter on the next weekend, as the Tribesmen tangled
with Bucyrus. A week of stiff practice lay behind them and the improvement was
plain as they led all the way to a thirty to twenty-three victory. Teamwork was
better, the basket less elusiveg in short, the Indians really looked like a basket-
ball team. More than looked like a team, they played like one, as the result shows.
Strouse led the scoring with twelve points and Shearer was close behind with ten.
The Redskins took the lead in the second quarter and never relinquished it,
though Bucyrus came often within striking distance.
fremont now invaded Redskin domains. The game was close at all times
and "anybody's ball game" all the way to the closing gun. VVith but three minutes
to play, Bliss, of Fremont, scored to give his team a one point lead. Retaining
possession of the ball most of the time, Fremont "stalled" till the game ended,
twenty-two to twenty-one. Shearer, Strouse and Karg led the way for Fostoria
while Klinck was the Fremont high point man. During the contest the lead
changed hands thirteen times, only once did either team have more than a three
chapter I V
tiffin Columbian was the next opponent. The Warriors seemed bewildered
on their foe's larger floor and gave a performance far below their play in the
Fremont game. Consolation was not lacking, however, for in field goals the
teams were even. Erratic work at the foul stripe spelled defeat for the locals.
Young was high scorer, snaring five tallies, the other Redskins being about even
as to scoring. The final score was seventeen to fourteen.
on the following week-end Bowling Green entered Fostoria's domain. The
Bob-cats were well in the lead at the start of the fourth quarter, but, just as so
often in football, the fighting finish of the Redskins overcame all opposition.
Although Shearer topped the scorers with twelve points, to Bill Young fell the
honor of making the winning basket. Deadlocked at the finish, the overtime
period found the Bob-cats scoring first on a foul, then another foul and a basket
by Bill Young put the Redskins out in front. just how close the contest was, is
shown by the twenty-three to twenty-one margin of victory.
next evening the Indians took on Sandusky. The final score was forty-one
to sixteen, but the game was far closer than the figures show. The first quarter
gave no great advantage to either team, but the Bowling Green struggle of the

night before had taken its toll and the Warriors could not quite keep up the pace
set by their fresher opponents. Karg led his team mates with five tallies, and
again the larger floor provided a stumbling block for Fostoria. Tired or not, the
team played a good brand of basketball all the way through.
chapter VII -
another week passed and the War Party headed toward Findlay. Their
opponents must have been waiting in ambush, for the Redskins were thoroughly
and completely scalped to the tune of thirty-four to thirteen. Some off-game
must come in any team's schedule and this one can be so marked in the Warriors'
record. Herbert was the Fostoria high point man, scoring three field goals. Both
passes and shots were below the usual standard, but the Braves were able to hold
up their end of the defense.
chapter VIII '
the Perrysburg contest found a smoother working Redskin attack lying in
wait for victims. The visitors took an early lead and retained it during the first
half. Then the Indians held their war dance. Midway in the third period George
Shearer tied the score at sixteen all, tipping in a basket on a jump at the foul line.
From that point to the twenty-nine to twenty-three victory, the Redskins were
out for scalps. Shearer and Strouse led the scoring.
in the first game of the city championship series, St. Wendelins entertained
our Warriors. While not contended so hotly as had been expected, the game did
produce some surprises. One of the most unexpected was the check placed on
Dick Scharf, Mohawk scoring ace. This was due largely to the efforts of George
Shearer, who in the meantime managed to garner six points on his own account.
Herbert and Karg showed well at guards, both on defense and in bringing the
ball into play.
the tomahawk next fell against Carey. The game was close through-out
the first three stanzas, then the scoring began in earnest. Shearer came first with
fifteen points and Bill Young second with eleven. The Redmen functioned well
in all departments, seeming to have adopted the old prize ring maxim, "The best
defense is a good offense." Be that as it may, the Redmen kept their foes con-
tinually in hot water for the entire last quarter closing the game forty to twenty-
when the Junior Home players came to Fostoria, the Redskins cranked up
the old car and prepared to "go to town". The first quarter certainly seemed to
send them well on their way. In the second stage of the journey however, one
of the vital parts of the engine must have been lost, for the team promptly went
into reverse. This situation didn't last the entire game of course, but long enough
to allow the Juniors a safe margin of victory. George Shearer again topped the
scoring, with twelve tallies.
the next game might have been termed a reunion, or "Old Home Dayi',
for Tim Peggs lined up against his former team mates of Lima South. The
reunion, however, was not exactly a success for the Warriors, as they received
the short end of a twenty-seven to fourteen score. Herbert and Shearer were the
scoring leaders for Fostoria. Many Redskin goals were missed because of the
adeptness of Lima players at hurrying shots of the Braves.

the VVarriors now tried their tomahawks on a strong team from Kenton.
The contest was close all the way, both teams playing well and neither gaining a
large lead. The Fostoria war knives must have been a little dulled, however, for
Kenton took home the majority of the scalps, winning thirty to twenty-six.
Though defeated, the Redskins did gather in some trophies, for Karl Strouse
recovered from a scoring slump to lead both teams with fifteen points. The third
period was a fatal one for Fostoria, as they were held to a lone field goal, scored
chapter XI V
tackling Bowling Green for the second time, the Black and Red seemed
"lost" on the foreign court. Shearer topped the Redskins with three held goals.
The offense refused to work, both passing and shooting were below par, and neither
team was overly careful of fouls. The final score was thirty-six to sixteen.
chapter X V ,
the second game for the Harding Cup found the Mohawks in the visitors
role. Scharf led his team to victory with eleven points, while Shearer scored
seven for the Redskins. The foul line proved to be the difference between defeat
and victory, for the Redskins scored only five times out of sixteen attempts while
St. Wendelins counted ten out of thirteen. The fans received a thrill in
the second quarter when a rejuvenated varsity, after a short rest returned to the
floor and went on a scoring spree. The score then remained about even for a while,
but the Mohawks gradually pulled into the lead and won twenty-four to nineteen.
Louis Karg's defensive work undoubtedly prevented a much higher score for
chapter X VI
the next chapter is one of surprises. Napoleon found a varsity which could
not seem to play successfully and a Reserve team which could and did play like
varsity regulars. The first stringers played one quarter and located the basket
but once. Then the Reserves went into action. In the two quarters which they
played, the Subs outscored Napoleon, sixteen to fifteen, but were unable to over-
come their opponents early lead. In the fourth, the Varsity tried again. Although

. . . . . . . .- boys' glee club
he Boys' Glee Club is an organization with a definite purpose and not merely an zgvity
to occupy an extra study period. The boys in it are there because they like to sing and wish
to improve their voices. Under Professor L.G. Jones' splendid leadership they learn to sing
correctly as well as to know good singers when they hear them.
this year the Club has worked faithfully although unpretentiously. Contrary to custom,
a few Freshmen with unchanged voices had to be admitted because there were so few tenors
in the upper three grades. However, the plan was very successful. The new song books, "Pro-
gram Songs and Choruses," which have been used by both the Glee Clubs and the Mixed
Chorus, have proven to be a very economical purchase, for the numbers in them would have
been very expensive if they had been bought separately.
donald De Witt continued as pianist, the same as last year.
after the first semester, most of the time was spent on the Eisteddfod numbers and the
operetta. The numbers for the Eisteddfod, which was held here on March 23, were, "The
Gypsy Trail" by Galloway, for the whole group, and "To a Rose" by Coerne, for quartet.
Defiance, Kenton, and Perrysburg were the other competing schools. In the group number,
the adjudicator gave Fostoria fourth place, although he said there was little difference between
the four groups. The quartet, however, easily won first place.
the Glee Club, although it did not directly put on the operetta, had an important part
in it. Many of the boys were in the Eisteddfod chorus as well as the Glee Club, so when Mr.
jones decided that the Chorus would do the operetta, much of the work fell on the Glee Club.
The play chosen was a musical comedy, HEI Bandido". W DON DE WITT
. . . . . . . . girls' glee club
he Girls' Glee Club, under the supervision of Mr. L. G. Jones, was composed of members of
the various classes of the high school. These girls rehearsed every Tuesday and Thursday,
the sixth period.
the club had many mature voices but was also handicapped by having a number of young
voices. Several new members were taken in at the middle of the year and Mr. jones worked
with them until their voices blended in very well with those of the older members. We feel
sure however, that accomplishments, by means of hard work on the part of the students and
under the direction of Mr. Jones, will be in vivid evidence this year. Some of the main points
Mr. Jones was especially interested in was teaching the girls the importance of good diction
and attack and release. Beautiful voices may be overlooked because of poor diction. Shading
and expression are also important factors in order to be able to sing the songs in the manner
in which they were meant to be.
, the annual Eisteddfod was held in Fostoria this year. The number chosen for the Girls'
Glee Club was "The Butterfiyn by Cyril jenkins. The girls cooperated with Mr. jones in
learning this piece so they were able to give Kenton, Defiance, and Perrysburg good competi-
tion. The adjudicator stated that he thought we had a very well balanced Glee Club and that
our diction was remarkable. He was
also particularly interested in our phras-
ing. Much credit is due Vivian Hartsook,
the accompanist, for the efficient and
cheerful way in which she has performed
her duty. - ELEANOR CLYMER

he mixed chorus, which is limited to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, improved greatly in
their work this year. Four and eight part music was studied with very pleasing results. This
club met every Monday and Wednesday in activities period.
the mixed chorus has been the starting of several other clubs, namely: the Boys' and
Girls' Glee Club, and the Singers' Club.
the Eisteddfod was held in Fostoria this year. The numbers in which some of the members
of Chorus were represented were: "Dear Land of Home", by Sebiliu and "Adoramus Te", by
Palestrind. These numbers were sung by the mixed chorus group: male quartet, "Golden
Slumber Kiss"g girls' trio, "Sleep, My jesus, Sleep", by Maurielg soprano solo, "Little Boy
Blue", by Golson, alto solo, "When the Roses Bloom", by Reichart, tenor solo, "Calling You",
by Frank Gray, and the bass solo, "I Love Life", by Mana-Zucca. We have always ranked
high in the Eisteddfod.
with the line instructions of the director Mr. jones, and the cooperation of its members,
the Chorus has been very satisfactory. .

hirteen years ago a group of boys started an organization whose purpose was "to create,
maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian
Character", that organization was the Hi-Y club.
today, under the capable leadership of Mr. Hawk and Mr. Evans, our faculty advisors,
the Club has grown to be one of the most active school organizations, having a membership of
forty-eight boys selected from the Junior and Senior classes.
each year at Thanksgiving the Club sponsors a Chapel program, the proceeds from which
go to make up baskets to give to charity, this year more than fifty baskets were donated.
as a climax to a year of service the Club sponsors its annual "Sweetheart Banquet" which
is always the outstanding social event of the High School year.
those of the Club who are Seniors wish to Mr. Hawk, Mr. Evans and the Club, many
more years of helpful service to Fostoria High School.

. journaHsm and the journal
he junior and Senior journalism students as in previous years have written, for their outside
work, the daily school news, under the supervision of their instructor, Miss Hunt and have
had it published daily in the "Fostoria Daily Review" and the 'fFostoria Daily Times".
because of lack of funds the Red and Black Journal was not published every two weeks
this year as it was last year, but was issued only for such special occasions as Thanksgiving,
Christmas, Easter, and the closing of school. The journal was usually four pages in length and
provided for the students a continuous record of the activities and the coming events of the
school. It was sold for five cents a copy. The Red and Black Journal is published by the
'fFostoria Daily Review".
a special journal, six pages long, was issued at Christmas time. It contained special
Christmas stories and poems.
this year a special effort has been made to make the Journal more original than before and
different from those of other years. There have been many added features and the journalism
students have tried to get away from such cut and dried conventionalities as numerous editorials
which are not read. An attempt has been made to carry more pictures. More advertising has
been used this year than in years before. The merchants have been very kind in advertising
in our journal.
the Journal has been more of a financial success this year than last year. More copies
were sold, perhaps because students were willing to support fewer issues. - FLORENCE HOLDEN
. . . . . . . . . . . . debate
nder the supervision of Mr. L. S. Crowl and through earnest and conscientious work of
the students, another successful debate season has come to a close.
the question this year, although of some difficulty, proved to be of interest to all. The
question this year was-Resolved: HThat the United States should adopt the Essential
Features of the British system of Radio Control and Operation."
the affirmative team, consisting of six members, contended that the United States should
adopt the essential features of the British system of radio control and operation for the better-
ment of the country itself.
the negative team, consisting of six members, in opposing any changes in the present
system, maintained that the American policy had not caused trouble in the past and that any
change would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.
the schedule for the year consisted as follows: Melmore, Ashland, Bettsville, Attica,
Marion, Findlay, Fremont, Tiffin and Thompson.
there were sixteen debates in all and all were non-decisive.
they also debated before The Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs in addition to the several P.T.A.
groups. This season was the first in which we followed a Buckeye League Schedule and our
contacts with schools in this league proved very delightful. - JUANITA CARTER

. . . . . . accounting department
he services rendered by the Central Accounting Department are not very well understood
by the student body because it has operated so smoothly and efficiently. The accounting
is done by three girls under the supervision of Mr. Knepper. Their duties are to keep an account
of all the club transactions, write checks, and issue statements at the end of each month for
the Superintendent, Principal, and each member of the Board of Education, and be ready to
give any information concerning the accounts at any time.
the growth of this department has been remarkable. When it first came into being,
February 1, 1929, only nine accounts were handled. At present, forty accounts are on the books.
Of course, it is handling some accounts outside of student organizations.
to be chosen as one of the bookkeepers, the student must be accurate in accounting,
dependable, and willing to work, even over-time if necessary. These qualities are absolutely
essential in carrying on the work of this department. To be chosen as an accountant in this
department is one of the highest honors which can come to an accounting student. It also
gives the student valuable experience along this line of work, and those selected deem it a
privilege to serve the school in this
capacity. It has been a very enjoyable
school year for those who have taken

ibrary training is given to a select group of girls each year. Scholarship, character and attitude
are considered when selecting the girls. It has been changed somewhat this year and instead
of having just one girl each period, there are two during certain periods of the day. These
extra girls are given the same training as the others which includes: spending fifteen minutes a
week charging out books, returning books to the shelves in their proper places and keeping
magazines and debate material in order. These girls are taught classification, accessioning,
mechanical preparation, history of libraries, ordering and cataloging so they are able to help
this year the library has a special section for magazines. The girls are taught to use the
Reader's Guide, an index to periodicals, to enable them to find any of the present happenings
of the world or any research material that the students may desire to get in the magazines.
meetings are held each Wednesday after school in order that the staff may be given new
information in library work. The girls this year have been working toward earning enough
to buy a cork rug, to make the room more quiet so the students will be able to concentrate.
Miss Kerns was the substitute librarian for several weeks this year and she was pleased with
the girls' efficiency in their work. - INEZ SNYDER

lambda sigma . . .
even years ago this club was organized as a living memorial to Miss Mabel Bourquin,
teacher of American Literature. They chose the Greek letters, "Lambda Sigma", which
means "Literary Society", for their name, black and white, which signifies ink and paper, as
their colors, and the sweet pea as their flower. "VVithout a love for books the richest man is
poor", serves as the motto. To give the girls an understanding of books is the aim of the club.
new members are taken into this club twice during each year. juniors and Seniors are
taken in at the beginning of the year, and Sophomores are taken in during the half of the year.
They must have at least a B average in English. New officers for the next year are elected
at the end of the year, by the members of the organization from the current Junior Class
the organization has undertaken to study the modern dramas and novels this year. This
has proven to be an interesting project to the members. The programs have consisted of book
reviews, resumes of plays, and reports on lives of authors. To gain this end the authors studied
were VVilla Cather, George Kauffman, Elinor Jackson, and Dorothy Canfield Fisher. Some
of the books that were reviewed were: Anthony Adverse, Let 'Ein Eat Cake, The Bent Twig,
One of Ours, Ramona, and Of Thee I Sing. The club also has played various new literary games
this year. The members have answered roll call with significant quotations from the author
several members of the faculty have added to the club's programs by giving interesting
talks. Among these contributors were Miss McDermott, teacher of Senior English Literature,

. audubon nitesak
udubon Nitesak, the high school nature club, is composed of members from the three upper
classes of the school. One year ago, by an amendment to the constutition, the club became
co-educational when the privilege of membership was extended to the boys. The name of the
club was chosen in accordance with the ideals and purpose of the organization. Audubon is
taken from the name of John Audubon, a great Naturalist and "Nitesak" is an Indian word
the club colors are green and white, and the fiower is the lily-of-the-valley. The motto
is "To love all Nature" and the club song is A'Trees". The purpose of the organization may
be found in this quotation of Bryant's, "Go forth under the open skies and list to nature's
the club has been especially interesting because of the wide and varied programs which
have been presented. Insect life, animals, plants, astronomy, poems of Nature, and lives of
great naturalists were taken up. Reports on the various subjects were given by members of
the club. Special reports were given on the lives of Luther Burbank, john Audubon, and
others. Several outstanding speakers were heard during the year. This was accomplished
through the help of the program chairmen, Leona VVilliams and VVilliam Harler, and their
the meetings of the organization were held every two weeks on Monday evening in the
high school. This year the Club has been especially fortunate in having Miss Mary Leasure

all, Winter, and Spring namely the seasons, also the theme of our annual. Through the
seasons we find the nine students of the traffic patrol squad performing their duties in a
manner of which the school is justly proud.
the fifth year of service to the Fostoria High School has been completed by the Student
Traffic Police. This force was organized four years ago for the purpose of preventing serious
accidents which might result from the congested traffic situations that sometimes occur at the
intersections of High Street with Perry and Main Street: at dismissal time.
this force was instituted by the local A.A.A. Club. It was one of the many traffic squads
instituted by the A.A.A. Clubs of the United States. The boys first selected were Boy Scouts,
but during the past two years it has been conducted by the F.M.D. During this last semester,
F .M.D. Goats were selected to help in the direction of traffic. The boys were first provided
with red fiags to regulate the pedestrians. Now the semaphores are used at the street intersec-
mr. George Switzer should be given a great deal of thanks for his help in aiding tne boys
in the direction of the traffic scare of vehicles and pedestrians twice a day.. Each day, rain
or shine, finds Mr. Switzer aiding the students and motorists.

. . . . . . . . . omicron lambda
he Omicron Lambda Club is the dramatic society of the high school. lt was organized in
1929 by a group of public speaking students, who were interested in the promotion of
effective public speaking and the use of good English, to stimulate public discussion of important
state and national questions, and to encourage interest in the drama as an instrument of educa-
tion. The Greek words, meaning "the speech" or "the discourse", are well carried out by the
very capable advisor, Mr. Lester Crowl.
the club held no tryouts this year and anybody interested was invited to join. Therefore
the club has one of the largest memberships of any of the organizations, with sixty-three active
our president, Meredith Cramer, chose different groups to take charge of our bi-monthly
meetings. The program in general consisted of a one-act play, with director and cast for these
taken by our own members. This is good training for those who desire to be in the formal
class plays. Most of the material used for the junior and senior class plays and the all-school
play is taken from the Omirron Lambda Club.
the Club sponsored several plays this year. Among them were "The Resignation of Bill
Snyder" by John D. Shavre, and 'iSparkin" by E. P. Conkle the, Christmas play which was
splendidly done and well received. The plot in the 'AResignation of Bill Snyder" is centered
around a rural Post Office system. Bill Snyder, the best carrier resigns the day before the worst
blizzard in twenty years sweeps the community. Four boys refuse to carry the mail on horse-
back through the blizzard and Bill Snyder resigns a good position in a store to carry the mail
because "the mail must go through".
the action in "Sparkin" takes place in the kitchen of a meager farm house. The plot is
centered around the first visit of the bashful boy friend and the complications which arise
while he is there. The play involves

although sports, dramatics, music and other school activities somehow seem to be more
definitely outlined in the memory in contrast with the routine of studies and the correla-
ting, multitudinous bits of information that seem rather irrelevant to life at present.
the scholarship teams are chosen after the spring vacation, and after a month of prepara-
tive study the members take the Scholarship Tests given at Bowling Green State College in
the first week of May, competing with students from other high schools in the Northwestern
district of Ohio, including public, private, couitfiiid exempted village schools.
the tests cover a range of fifteen academic subjects. The students with scores ranking in
the first ten places have "placed" and receive district certificates. If some are so fortunate as
to have placed high in the State, they are awarded a scholarship or a certificate of honorable
this year the teams have been chosen again with the hope that they may make good
records, thus stimulating further scholastic efforts, not for the sake of records but for knowledge,
not knowledge for knowledge's sake but for its aid in communication and to learn how far
knowledge has progressed, being then enabled to take it up from that point. The following
students have been chosen for the 1934 Fostoria High School Scholarship Team.
the third student listed in each subject is the alternate and will be ready to take the place
of either of the other two students should they be unable to participate.

senior class history . . .
ust as the seasons come and go, so do the years of experienceg and so have the
years of the class of 1934 come and gone. With that cycle every season left
its mark. Now we proudly note its evolution in retrospect.
"How many things by season seasoned are
To their right praise, and true perfection."
- SHAKESPEARE "Merchant of Venice"
the Freshman year is Summer, proud, refulgent, blooming with the fruits
of the hrst eight years. As nothing daunted us, noteworthy aspirations were
apparent, and we took our places in every activity. Most outstanding perhaps,
was the entrance of some into the Freshman Players Dramatic Club. And then
with the characteristic bloom of late summer, this season was climaxed by a party
- the first Freshman party.
then came Autumn, the Sophomore year, full of gorgeous coloring that was
symbolic of further achievement. The class was now organized, officers elected,
and the class colors of black and white were chosen.
glittering Winter, the Junior year, came as gleaming as ice with accom-
plishments. We find our members outstanding in sports, represented in musical
and literary clubs, While the pride of dramatic activity proved to be the class
play "The King Rides By". At the end of the year the annual custom of feting
the Seniors by the Junior-Senior Prom was carried out happily.
and now We are in Spring, with all its promise of things to come. VVe have
been tempered by previous seasons. The efforts of other years are providing sap
for our buds. We dominated the student body and were leaders in every sense.
The football and the basketball team found their stars in our midst, literary
clubs and journalism looked to us for leadership, and the glee clubs and dramatics
built their productions on F"
our talent. We excelled in
every line. Now, with all
the freshness and hope of
Spring we peer into the
future. - JOSEPHINE ASH

I N quest for Truth begun so long ago,
We reach the first sure foothold to our goal,
Despite the adverse winds that fiercely blow
Doubt and indecision through the soul.
Still within each self there gleams a flame
That sinks and soars, yet always guides the heart,
In high resolve to carry on the name
Each one has graven on his scroll apart.
About the upward heights yet darkness clings,
And hides the waiting future from our sight,
Till Time with ripened years its wisdom brings,
And we stand Victors in eternal light.

ometime near the end of the school year seven boys are chosen to represent the "F.lVl.D."
club for the year 1934-35. These boys are very carefully selected by the present members
and their faculty advisors, Mr. Hawk and Mr. Kreischer. The pledges selected this year are
Howard Shine, James Guernsey, Robert Smith, Robert Foster, Tom Prentice, Harry Wade,
Glenwood Broyles, Marcus Chilcote, Junior Clevenger, Richard Keyes, Robert Etchie, Richard
Franklin, Ben Carey. The untimely death of junior McCormick was a great sorrow to both
members and pledges.
although the "F.lVI.D." club was originally a debate club it has during a period of four-
teen years, become a supporter of all activities. Each member is representative of one or
more organizations. Each project sponsored by HF.lVI.D." is undertaken for the common
good of the entire school population. The organization is essentially a service club and each
year an effort is made to leave some reminder of the club's work in the school building. An
effort is being made this year to furnish two enclosed bulletin boards. One will be placed in the
hall facing the assemblies, the other will be in the hall facing the center stairway.
throughout the school year "F.lVI.D." club took part in three projects. The members of
the club aided the Band lVIother's Association in publishing a program for the "Fostoria-
Findlay" game. The "Kick-off" dance was directly sponsored by the "F.M.D." club to
strengthen the friendly spirit which exists between the student bodies of the Fostoria and
Findlay High Schools. The members of the club are considered as the official ushers in the
Higli School Auditorium. As a result they have ushered for all chapel programs and also of the
Ohio Drama League plays which have been presented in our auditorium.
the members wish to express their gratitude to the student body, the faculty, and all
organizations for their cooperation and
support. They sincerely believe that

. . . . student council
nly three years of age but one of the most outstanding active organizations in the Fostoria
High School - the student council.
the purpose of the student council is to increase cooperation between the faculty and the
students, to improve school spirit and to promote responsibility among the students. We
sincerely believe we have made progress along these lines.
the council consists of Freshman and Sophomore home room presidents, the Junior
class officers, the Senior class president, two girl representatives and two boy representatives
elected by the class, the president of the Girl Reserves, the president of the Hi-Y and the presi-
dent of g department. These representatives not only took part in the meetings but
carried announcements back to home rooms and helped to carry them out.
the advisors, Mr. Hawk, principal of the high school and Mr. Kreischer, the advisor of
the F.lVI.D., have shown in the past years as they have shown this year, their capability of their
position. The Student Council appreciates efforts of the faculty advisors in helping this organi-
zation fulfill its duties.
the student council has been responsible for various achievements which include, a series
of chapel programs, the hall patrols, the charity. ticket sale, the dances after basket ball games,
and a number of other activities.
the high school has benefited by the student council thus far. VVe hope it will continue
to be an active organization in the Fostoria High School. As time goes on and the students
grow into a keener sense of self-govern-
ment, this council will have even more
responsibility. The student council of

n the fall of the present school year Mr. LaRue, senior American History teacher, organized
the History Club. its purpose was to study history comtemporary with our text which
time did not permit the students to study in class, such as modern world affairs in which the
United States is interested, and American historical literature. This club, although limited to
meeting the third and fifth Monday nights of each month, has been one of the most active
organizations of the school. It sponsored several important projects.
the first major project was an auto tour of the points of interest along the Maumee river
from Defiance to Toledo, including: Fort Defiance, the old canal with its locksg Independence
Dam, Turkey-foot Rock and.XYayne Monument, on the Battlefield of Fallen Timbers and
Fort Meigs at Perrysburg.
the second project was a motion picture show of the life of George Vifashington. The
students responded to this opportunity quite Well. In fact, all those attending the grade schools
came to see it.
the club had charge of the chapel program celebrating Lincoln's birthday. They gave
john Drinkwater's famous play, f'Abraham Lincoln", or rather part of it, since only two of the
entire number of scenes were put on. After one of the Lincoln's had finished reading the Gettys-
burg Address Cthere was a different Lincoln in each scene to give both boys the opportunity
to play that rolej it was announced that the third act would be presented. The play concluded
with the fourth act and was well received by the audience. A few major trips wereg to visit

. . . . . . . red and black staff
acking much knowledge of how to put out a good annual, the staff assembled at the beginning
of this school year in the cloakroom-like home of the Red and Black where old annuals of
all types and from all schools are scattered about and engravings are compactly filed away.
These representatives of the student body were chosen because they did not have many outside
activities that would interfere with their work on the annual, and also for reliability, efficiency,
and other qualities which are supposed to make the unfortunate possessor work. In a short
time, however, they were more familiar with their respective duties.
without the guiding influence of Miss Virginia Crawford, literary advisor, and Mr. Ervin
Kreischer, faculty business manager, who saw that all matters pertaining to the eventual
publication of the book were carried out and as they should be, it is safe to say that there would
have been no annual. Taking advice from them were: Dale Herbert, editor-in-chief and his
assistant, Josephine Ash, Kenneth Pingle, business manager, Burl Burkhart, photographic
editor, and his assistant Robert Fish, Louis Karg, subscription editor, and his assistant Pauline
Harrison, Freeda Flechtner, literary editor, Robert Lee, sport editor, and the various
after the contracts were signed, and the subscription campaign held, the staff began
working out their plans for the book. It could not be so elaborate or contain as many features
perhaps, as some of the preceding year books because of the limited budget, but to make it
different and at the same time distinctive, the "SEASONS" was chosen as the art theme. The
arrangement is not quite the same as it has been in the preceding years, so we hope the seniors
will not mind having their pictures in the back of the book, since their special activities come

the blooming earth .......
, mortgage on a farm in New England wouldn't ordinarily seem very exciting or unusual, but in the all-school
d. play "This Blooming Earth" there were other things.
first of all there was Grandma, a tyrannical old lady who kept the audience chuckling with her quaint but
altogether shrewd observations and actions, even though she proved to be vile and personified. For she managed
to thwart everything from young love to marital peace. And at the opening of the play we find her supreme
ruler of the Webster farm, owned by her lazy son-in-law, Bert Webster. She has browbeaten her daughter, Rose
Webster, and her granddaughter, Eleanor into complete submission. Great indeed is her wrath when she discovers
that the farm has been mortgaged for years without her knowledge.
then the family receives another serious shock, when the pampered son of Bert comes home from college
bringing a wife. This girl although sweet and gentle is a very determined character, and in time manages to win
over the entire family to her way of thinking. Under her management the farm enjoys a period of unusual pros-
perity and peace. However, this peace is soon disturbed by the discovery that Grandma has been cheating Eleanor
out of an inheritance left her by her father. Grandma is stricken by a stroke because of the shock of being dis-
covered and her power is forever broken.
all ends happily for Eleanor is able to marry her sweetheart, a neighbor's son, the mortgage is paid, and
Lucy, the young wife makes plans for even greater prosperity.
el bandido ...........
he plot of the operetta "El Bandido" concerns twin brothers separated in early childhood. One grows up to
be an artist, the other a bandit chieftain. In later years the paths of their lives cross for the first time thus
causing a very confusing situation.
don Manuel, the brother who has become an artist comes to Antiquera in order to paint the beautiful scenery.
The other brother Jose Maria comes to Antiquera also but in an entirely different capacity for he has come bringing
his robber band.
manuel meets and falls in love with Cyrilla the village belle. Meanwhile the operations of Jose Maria have
aroused much alarm and fear in the village. The villagers are beginning to suspect Manuel because of his remark-V
able resemblance to the bandit.
don Lazono, one of Cyrilla's suitors over hears a message sent to her by jose Maria asking her to meet him
in order to discuss the fate of her brother, who has become a member of the robber band. Lazono is convinced
that the artist and the brigand are the same man. He decides to kill him and when jose Maria appears on his
way to the pasada, Lazono shoots him.
manuel appears while Cyrilla is bending over the dead body and the relationship of the two men is discovered.
Thus the mystery is solved and all ends happily.
she stoops to conquer . a ..... .
ver since way back in 1773 when it was first presented Oliver Goldsmith's comedy, "She Stoops to Conquer"
e has played to delighted chuckling audiences. Its presentation by the senior class this year was no exception.
what audience could resist the humor of the situation- Here we have two gay young blades on their way to
visit, one to visit his fiancee, the other fif all goes wellj his future fiancee. Misled by his step-son they arrive at the
house of their host believing it to be an inn and him an inn keeper. Moreover, the young man who has come
courting mistakes his lady, the host's daughter for a barmaid and treats her as such. The indignation of the Squire
when treated as an innkeeper and the pranks his daughter play on her unsuspecting suitor make the play side-
splitting. Then too, there is the Squire's wife, who has great social aspirations. She firmly believes that she is
hiding her light under a bushel by living in a rural community. Her greatest desire is to live in London or at
least be thought very familiar with the city. Consequently, her obvious ignorance displayed when talking of the
place keeps the visitors and the audience roaring.
with this plot it isn't diliicult to imagine how much the audience enjoyed the play.

every good book should contain a tragedy. This honor we give to
the Redskins first land lastj game in the 1934 tournament. Playing good defensive
ball all the time and using an offense. which scored quickly at times and fell back
at others, the Braves held their own throughout the game and lost by one basket
in the overtime. Bucyrus was the foe and avenged an early season defeat with a
twenty-five to twenty-three victory. Shearer and Strouse were the high scorers
for Fostoria. chapter X VIII
all stories must come to an end, and in this case, a sad one. With the games
standing at one each in the city cage series the Redskins met the Mohawks on
St. VVendelins' floor. The game was the last for each team and closed the season
'fwith a bang". Sad to relate, our Redskins received most of the banging as the
twenty-eight to eighteen score shows. Both sides missed countless chances to
score, but our VVarriors seemed to miss a little more often and thus St. Vlfendelins
came out on top. Scharf and Nibeck led the Saints to victory with eleven points
apiece, while Shearer topped the Redskins with twelve. George started a one man
rally in the final period, but the gap between the scores was too great to be closed.
This gave St. Vlfendelins their first victory of the three needed to hold the Harding
. . . . reserve basketball squad
oached by Mr. Nixon, the Reserves again were of great value in developing
the Varsity players of a year or two hence. So well did they do this, that
several Reserves finished the season in Varsity ranks. The early games
seemed to predict a rather gloomy season, inexperience being the main cause.
As the season progressed, however, the records were balanced. Most outstanding
of their accomplishments lay in twice defeating the St. Wendelin Reserves and
in a victory over the Bettsville Varsity. The schedule of the Reserves included
Class A second teams and Class B Varsities. Too much credit can scarcely be
given to Coach Nixon for his fine work.

V A hitherto unknown literary
genius has just been discovered
in Fostoria. The following poem
was published in "The Studio"
for July 1945 and was just
brought to light. It will probably
be of interest to a large group of
the author's friends.
, AIR FLOW
Women rattle papers ....
Men drink blue water! I I I
The air is hotter ....
What about skyscrapers? ? ? ?
Steel fish swim slow
Up glass streams '- -

- Clyde Stearns
Mr. Stearns modesty will
probably prohibit the publishing
of 'more of his poetry. However
'the public may be assured that
this paper will do all possible to
secure publication of more such
delightful lyrics. We sincerely
feel that Clyde Stearns is one of
the undiscovered geniuses.
Fostoria is a swell town but
there are still many improve-
ments that need to be made. I
would put at the head of my list:
Upholstered Park Benches and
Free Lunch Counters. I feel
that I am speaking for a great
number of my persecuted breth-
ren when l say that such things
as traffic lights, taxes, gossips,
salesmen, etc., should be done
away with. What this town
needs to brighten it up 'is one

Last night the unexpected
happened at the tryouts for the
Fostoria Women's Swimming
Team. Miss Ophelia Herring,of
then rose in a body and cast Mr.
Mickey into the salty brine amid
the cheers and huzzahs of the
gallery. A rustic relative of Miss
Herring arose to avenge the
insult and met the same fate.
A riot broke out with much fury
and much indiscreet conduct
was seen on the part' of all
concerned. In five minutes the
Fostoria women, led by Miss
McDermid had cleared the hall,
with the exception of Phillips

on a rafter, and Geraldine Myers,
who was clutching a trapeze.
