'I hold the World, but as the world,
A stage, Where every man must play a part
Prologue . . .
Galion High stands high and lofty on the corner of North Union Street. Within its walls
we have gained ever increasing knowledge for the past three years. We have tried in this
annual to' give to the school the honor we feel is due. This year's Spy is entirely new and
somewhat unconventional, but We are confident you will find it well worth while.
Throughout the Spy we have carried out the theme of a play by using various stage
terms and effects. To tell more of the story here would be unfair to the reader for we
would be depriving him of the enjoyment of determining the value of this book for himself.
We hope you will enjoy reading our book as much as we have enjoyed gathering the
material for it. We have put into this year-book things which we think will in future years
bring pleasant memories of your days in Galion High School.
We are dedicating this year's Spy to Miss Donna Daniel, who because of illness will
be unable to graduate with us. Although Donna is far from us we hope her thoughts are
with us as all of ours with her. This dedication is only a small thing we can do to express
our appreciation for all Donna has done for us. We know we can never forget the won-
derful music that she made a part of Galion High.
Congratulations to the Class of 1950!
Your graduation from the Galion High
School marks the achievement of an im-
portant goal in your lives. We hope your
experience here will be a never ending
inspiration for each of you to keep on
growing and learning.
You have our best wishes for all of the
good things of life.
M. E. SHANK.
Superintendent of the
Schools of Galion
Twelve years of your lives have been
given over to preparation for better living.
It is our wish, as you continue living, work-
ing, earning and striving for the higher
goals, that you enjoy every possible suc-
cess on life's highway. May you find that
the greatest happiness in life comes to those
who work and serve for others as well as
for themselves. Work hard, play hard, up-
hold high standards and your life will be
Good luck and may you always feel

stands ready to be of service to you at any

The Spy Staff, being of a curious nature, did a little research.
They found that the year-bool: was not always priced the same.
Back in 1909 the seniors were able to publish the Spy for 35c.
Now the seniors sell 350 copies at 32.50 and lose money in spite
of that. Quite a change in our economy in 41 years.

Future Stars . . .FRESHMEN
Although the Freshman Class is not closely connected with the Senior
High, they certainly have made their presence known to all, and we feel that
they should be included in the 1950 Spy.
The freshmen have had championship teams, both in football and bas-
ketball. The football team was honored with a banquet last fall. And recently
the basketball and track teams and scholarship students were given a splen-
did banquet followed by the presentation of awards to those who qualified.
They also have sponsored two dances, one in the fall and one in the
spring. These were sponsored that the class might raise money for the annual
Freshman Prom. The Party is the first party of importance in the lives of the
freshmen. The Prom was May 19, and that night will long be remembered by
every freshman for years to come.
One reason for such a successful year was the fact that they had a
reliable group of officers. Bob Marshall was class president and Iune Honen-
berger was a capable vice-president: Carol Hathaway was secretary, while
Iack Frederick served as treasurer. Their class colors are green and white,
while their class flower is a white carnation.
The class of 1953 is made up of very promising material. Even though
they are tender in years, the freshmen are measuring up to the standards of
other classes which have gone before.
We know these freshmen will have accomplished their goal and three
years hence, maintained the standards of Galion High at the apex in all its

The dance was informal and decorated in their
class colors, blue and white. The Sophomores are
really very lucky people. Unlike the Seniors, to
our great sorrow, they have another two years of
giving the teachers a "rough time." Any Sophomore
who has taken biology from Mr. Ferriman or plane

Act I, Scene I . . . BAND
After the sounding of the gun, a triumphant noise, supposedly a fanfare, came from
the north end of the field. Guess who? Yes, it was the Galion High School eighty-piece
marching band led by Nancy Tracht, our drum majorette. Nice work, Nancy.
The performances were well received by the audiences on Friday nights, but during
the week, well . . . they didn't look or sound like anything extraordinary. If it weren't for
the drums being off beat and everyone playing a different note, it might sound like music.
Of course, the seniors never play wrong notes, it's always the underclassmen.
On parade, the band looked excellent until lack Hollanshead and Richard Williams
got out of step or Carol Tracht or Iohn Chase forgot to march. The band paraded at Crest-
line, Mansfield, and Galion in the annual Hallowe'en processions.
When football season ended, we found our energetic musicians turning to the large
sheets of music. Although to many of the students concert season was more added work,
it was enjoyed as much as marching season.
At the time of a concert, everyone seemed to be a perfect angel, but, during rehearsal,
Bob Cook, Larry Franks and Phyllis West played the role of the little guys with horns and
Under the capable direction of Mr. F. A. W. Liddell, the band has shown much im-
provement from last year. To you, he seems very patient, but LOOK OUT when the bass
section blurps at the wrong time Cwhich is all the timeb or the drum section plays at the
most opportune time Ca measure restj or the cornets blast, or just lots of things. All things
happen but Mr. Liddell is one of our most patient and congenial teachers.
Rolliking fun was had by all at the dance following the delicious banquet, held on
January 23, honoring all Galion music students. Interlocutor Bert Downing introduced
the different members of the faculty and student body. Bill Lamb, president, brightened
the evening with humorous remarks. At our president's right hand was Vice President
Iean Bercaw and Secretary-Treasurer Bernard Elliker. Fine job, kids.
On May 5 the band traveled to Bucyrus for the Band Festival. Schools participating
were Norwalk, Upper Sandusky, Bucyrus, and Galion.
The Galion band traveled to the Lima Band Festival, May' 27. It surely was fun, but
a five mile march was a long walk. How about it, band?
During the absence of Mr. Liddell, the band is under the direction of Marcella Schalip.
She was honored at the winter concert by being presented the Kiwanis Arian Award.
This award is given to the most outstanding musician in the band. She was also featured
in our spring concert as piano soloist.
The Memorial Day program and parade ended this year's activities for the seniors,
of whom Ioyce Gates, Connie Buskirk and Pat Younce are some of the happy ones.

This year the band was very fortunate to have with them, Paul Yoder, nationally
known arranger and composer. The band worked under him for one-half of their Winter
Concert and made a fine showing.
Another highlight of the year was the appearance of the Ohio State Concert Band
under the direction of Manley R. Whitcornb in Mansfield. This trip was sponsored and
financed by the Galion Booster Board.
Buses are used on the trips to the out of town football games and other out of town
activities. You would think that the long rides would be very monotonous but things are
just the opposite. The students enjoy these rides and the time is passed by singing, joking.
sleeping, and . . . l
The action pictures on this page were taken during a rehearsal. Do they give you an
idea of how they look during the seventh period, five days a week?
The picture in the right center is an action shot of our senior band students at work.
This is an unusual picture, as we very seldom see them working this hard. lean Bercaw
and Iohn Chase were absent at this time.
As a summary ot this year's work, the band has made a fine showing at all the foot-
ball games and has done splendid work in concert season.

lt's 10:47 on either Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Five seconds before
the bell rings, you leave your seats and hasten toward choir.
The high school choir is open to all students who want to sing and enjoy
singing. Some of our second sopranos enjoy the thought of trying to drown
out the first sopranos.
During the coldest part of the winter, our faithful singers trudged through
the knee-deep snow Ctruthfully it was rainingj so that they might give their
beautiful renditions of Christmas music for the Children's Horne Program.
Under the expert direction of Mr. F. A. W. Liddell, the choir presented
their annual Christmas and Easter programs. Not only did they present their
evening programs and assemblies for the high school but they also sang for
the Galion Kiwanis Club.
The choir enjoyed a fine banquet and dance, which was given for the
band, orchestra, and choir students and their parents.
On March 31, the choir traveled to Upper Sandusky to participate in the
Choir Festival. Schools participating were Bellevue, Crestline, Upper San-
dusky and Galion.
Marcella Schalip, a member of the choir, was honored at the Easter
program by receiving the Kiwanis Arian Award.
National Music Week was observed during the first Week of May. The
choir also took part in the Baccalaureate services.
Since the choir has done little a Capella Work, we have needed the
assistance of our faithful pianist, Marcella Schalip, She is student director
of the choir and band and is always ready to fulfill her duty as vice-president
of the organization when their capable President Bert Downing speaks.
Shirley Ireland served as secretary-treasurer.

Act 1, Scene 3 . . . ORCHESTRA
What is that terrible screeching and scratching sound that comes from
the band room at four o'clock on Wednesday? Oh, yes, now I remember.
The high school orchestra practices then and there.
Even though it is called the "high school orchestra", it is composed
mostly of junior high students. Every year the orchestra improves by small
leaps and bounds but the day is coming when Galion High will have a mag-
The orchestra Worked all year in order to make a good appearance at
the Orchestra Festival which was held here, April 21. Schools. attending
were Bellevue, Upper Sandusky and Galion.
The Kiwanis Arian Award was given to the most outstanding musician
in orchestra. During an assembly in the latter part of the year, this presenta-
tion was made to Marcella Schalip.
It seems that orchestra is the noisiest class that Mr. Liddell has. The
senior high students tell jokes and make noise while the others work. Of
course the seniors think they are so good they don't need to play but an or-
chestra isn't an orchestra unless everyone plays.
During the past year the orchestra has made numerous improvements
and has had a successful year. Keep up the good work!
Act 1, Scene 4 . . . BOYS' GLEE CLUB
Standing- Shroll, Lace, Zager. Wiggins, Clark, Abraham, Cronenwett
MacHenry. Rick, Reeks, Beach, Poland. Simons. Seated at piano-Kerr.
The newly-formed boys glee club found a warm spot in every heart
this year. The group is composed of juniors, seniors, and a few sophomores.
The members have prepared a charter for the group: they hope their club
will grow and prosper with the school's other activities.
These fledglings have been under the direction of Ken Schroll and the
guidance of Mr. Liddell.
The boys presented a program of carols at Christmas time. On March
3, they entertained the student body with popular and semi-classic songs.
During the first week of May the club took part in the National Music Week
As can be imagined, the rehearsals were not always the serious busi-
ness-like affairs that performances indicated, but the spirit of mischief was
quelled to that of good fun.
The membership has been at a minimum and the boys hope for replace-
ments next year.
Edwin Lace with the aid of vice-president Tom Zager has kept the boys
on their toes. Richard Kerr served as secretary-treasurer as well as capable

Inside the door amid the shouts and men there is the frenzied excitement
that comes only with the winning of a game. The Galion Tigers had knocked
Willard out of the league championship by beating them 14 to 6.
But let's look back to August when first the coaches watched the boys
work out. The mentors were surprised to discover how much human flesh
could stand under a hot sun and several layers of clothing. After a month of
intensive practice on the basics, the time of the first game drew near.
That game was with the Tiffin Calvert eleven. Galion proved to be more
than a match for the Tiffin boys as they Whipped T. C., 31 to 7. This victory
was the first since Oct. 30, 1947 when Galion beat Willard 24 to O.
On the following Friday, the Tigers beat Crestline 20 to 13 in a game
that featured brilliant backfield running as the Tigers fought to their second

The following week, Galion traveled to Shelby to meet the much-under-
rated Whippets. To the amazement of all, Shelby scored on the third play of
the game. These boys completed the tonsorial operation by clipping the
Tigers' claws 21 to O. This upset placed Galion sixth in the league. But Galion
was just beginning to fight.
Galion's master mechanic, Coach Harold Friar, taught the Bengals how
to disable trucks and the Tigermen traveled to Norwalk to practice on the
second-place Truckers. The 26 to 12 win boosted the Tigers to a tie with
Shelby for third place.
After the next encounter the Tigers dropped to fourth place as they were
defeated by the thrice-downed rival, Bucyrus, 19 to 0. The statistics showed
neither team was outstanding.
Then Galion outbucked the Upper Sandusky Rams 27 to 14. Although
trailing twice, the Tigers came back and drove ahead with lightning plays
in an inspiring performance.
Following the spirit-building Upper game, the Tigers journeyed to Belle-
vue to battle four long quarters to a 13-all tie.
The Tigers made football history the last home game when they knocked
Willard out of first place. By holding the league aces to one touchdown, the
Tiger giant-killers at peak performance closed the classic 14 to 6.
Still reveling in victory, the local gridders faced the Ashland A's who
were at the apex of efficiency. The Tigers couldn't get started when the A's
applied the pressure even though they fought back all the way. The gun
finally sounded as the A's gave our boys the worst defeat in eight years.
The yearly resume could be said in a few words: Excellent leadership,
plenty of spirit, and the ability to keep the chin up in defeat and the nose
down in victory.

The Tiger netmen faced a rugged sixteen-game schedule at the beginning of their
season this year. Coach Dick Backensto starting his second year at Galion had four re-
turning lettermen, three seniors and one junior.
The season for Galion started at Mt. Vernon with Galion losing by a 36-35 score.
Galion started the home season by meeting and bowing before the big Marion Hard-
ing Presidents who aspired to be tops-ranking in the state. The game ended with the
Tigers on the short end of the 57 to 38 count.
By sheer drive and the ability to make 25? of their field shots were the Tigers able
to stay in the game with the superior Ashland I-Vs, although neither team was passing
up to par. The Ashland men hit 4071 of their action shots for a decisive victory.
The following week Galion was host to Bucyrus. The over-capacity crowd saw Seif
leading the Tigers with 30 points. The final score read 73 to 58 in Galion's favor.
Playing on an unfamiliar floor the Tigers made a valiant fourth quarter rally at the
Shelby auditorium only to tall short of their goal by six points. Score 53 to 47. Bucyrian

Redmen bit Tiger streaks as they clipped Galion 46 to 37, but Galion received revenge
as we tilted Crestline 58 to 29.
Proving their home floor prowress, the Tigers beat the Bellevue Redmen 42 to 37 in an
evenly matched game. Neumann, Seif and Wisler led the team in points and along with
Gehrisch and Ken McManigell, they tallied a victory.
Galion subdued Norwalk 76 to 54 as the Tiger men sank 33 baskets in 32 minutes.
Upper Sandusky Rams were the victors of a foul shooting display as they won 68 to 57.
Plagued by an unfamiliar iloor the Tigers bowed to Crestline. The inspired Bulldogs
turned the Bengel Boys back as Crestline got their only win in eleven games.
Still trying to break the foreign floor jinx, the Tigers traveled to Marion Harding only
to lose 54 to 48. Although playing a better game than when they first met the Presidents,
the Tigers couldn't cope with the superior team.
Attempting to avenge the defeat handed them by the Shelby Whippets earlier, Galion
dropped a thriller to Shelby 51 to 46, setting Shelby in a tie for first place in the league.
Without the services of their play maker, Bill Wisler, who was sidelined with bron-
chitis, the Tigers lost to the Canton South Wildcats 50 to 42.
Avenging a returning football defeat, the Willard Flashes whipped the visiting Tigers
80 to 49 as the Flashes set a home floor scoring record and copped a share of the N. O. L.
Finally breaking the foreign floor jinx, the Tigers battled the Manseld Madison Rams
out of the gym with Galion scoring 59 points to their 47. It was the first foreign floor vic-
tory since Ianuary 4, 1948, when Galion beat Bucyrus.
Entering the tournament at Mansfield, Galion drew the Shelby Whippets who had
twice defeated the Tigers in regular season. The Tigers, losing Seif and Neumann via the
foul line, leaned on Ron Gehrisch who was playing his best game. Other juniors and soph-
omores who played gave the Tiger fans much to look forward to in sports at G. H. S.

Starting off the spring sports program was the triangular track meet
with Galion competing against the swift Holmes Liberty squads.
Coach Bob Iackson relied heavily on his four lettermen: Howard Koch-
heiser, pole vaulter and high jumper, Frank Morales, half miler, Dick Neu-
mann, hurdler, dash and broad jumper, Dick Powers, middle distance runner
and broad jumper. These boys with alot of help from the many Iuniors and
Sophomores are the nucleus of the Tigers' Thinclads. Starting the year off
right was Dick Neumann setting a new track record of 16.2 seconds for the
120 yard high hurdles. Neumann, Gene Hencye, Don Althouse, Don Beach,
Howard Kochheiser, Bill Shindledecker, Paul Krauss and Frank Morales ac-
counted for the majority of Galion's score, of 53M points as compared to the
18M points for their opponents.
Mt. Vernon and Galion almost needed snowshoes for their meet as Neu-
mann copped four first places accounting for 20 points of the 585 points
Galion received. Mt. Vernon also happened to eke out 49M points. Koch-
heiser tied for first in the pole vault at l0 feet 4 inches. Neumann came in
first in the high and low hurdles, 220 yard dash, and the broad jump.
i -M f ' ' V we is

Senior track men contesting in respective track and field events are as follows: Dick Neumann,
120 yard high hurdles, 15.5 sec.: Frank Morales, half mile: Don Althouse, mile, Howard Koch-
heiser established a NOL league record with a pole vault of 11 feet 4 inches. Don Beach, Senior
distance man, is not pictured.
The Bucyrus Redmen felt the sting of defeat as Galion romped over them
73-45. Once again Neumann led the scoring with four firsts giving him 201
points from the high and low hurdles, broad jump and the 220 yard dash.
Helping to show the Galion supremacy as N. O. L. track champs were milers
Hencye and Althouse and weight man Louis Corwin with the relay team of
Hinesman, Krause, Host and Powers, and vaulters Kochheiser and Schuttera.
Coach Bob Iackson then took his thinclads to the Mansfield relays, the
top relays in the country where Dick Neumann took fifth place in the hurdles
giving Galion their only two points.
On May 2, the Uper Sandusky Rams took the N. O. L. track champion-
ship with Galion, Bellvue, Shelby, Bucyrus, Norwalk, and Willard trailing
in that order. Neumann set a record on the high hurdles at 15.8 and tied the
old record of 23.3 on the 220 yard dash. Howard Kochheiser broke the old
pole vault record of 10 feet ll inches set by Moses of Upper and an opponent
of Kochheiser's in the meet, and set a new record of ll feet 1 inch and then
broke that one a few moments later by jumping ll feet 4 inches setting the
new N. O. L. record. Kochheiser also won the high jump at 5 feet 5 inches.
Also present at this meet were five queens, Beverly Cass, Ruth Rannow, Pat
Whitesell, Gloria Grosh, and Carolyn Revert who presented the ribbons to
Other Tigermen who scored points were Shindledecker who took second
in the high jump and third in the high hurdles, Morales who ran third in the
880 yard dash. George Abraham tossed the shot 40 feet l0Mr inches to come
in fourth. Spaid, Stewart, Cope and Schuttera were fifth in the 2 lap relay
and Schuttera also 'took third place in the pole vault. Galion took the track
crown from Upper Sandusky last year who held it for three previous years.
The track boys also attended the Marion Harding invitational May 6,
and the Springfield relays.

Galion's baseball season was getting off to a slow start as the weather-
man kept .throwing snow and rain instead of sunshine. After having many
skull sessions and practices in the gym the weather finally permitted the
Bengal nine to have outside practice.
The Baseball Tigers, well on their way to a fine record under the leader-
ship of their able coach, E. B. Rannow, were in top mental and physical shape
for concentrated season play. Holding the title of "League Defending Champ-
ions" the titlists opened their season with Willard and behind the steady
pitching of Ray Seif and good hitting on the part of the whole team, the game
ended S-0 in favor of Galion. t
The following game with Mansfield High featured the pitching of Bill
Enders and after a beautiful diving catch by Tucker, right fielder, the game
soon ended with Galion on top 5-2.
Ray Seif held the Marion boys to only three runs the next game and Bill
Enders came through to hit a home run with the bases loaded giving Galion
a 6-3 victory.
In the next game which showed the supremacy of Galion team, the Mans-
field Madison Rams were the victims of a 17-3 score with Enders and Bill
Rhinehart pitching on the coldest day of the season.
Seif, appearing to be one of the top pitchers in the league, held the Wil-
lard boys to a two run game while Galion romped over the plate eight times.
On May 5 the Orangemen traveled to Ashland. Bill Enders, sophomore
hurler, allowed Ashland only four hits. It seemed to be the sophomores' day
as another sophomore, Hoyt Hathaway, came through with three of Galion's
nine hits out of three times at bat. Of these three hits one was a home run.
The other hits were 'two for Wisler, two for Stoner, one for Tucker and one
for Seif. The game had numerous close plays, especially at the plate, where
Galion's senior ace, Catcher Bill Wisler, ably demonstrated the champion-
ship form our boys had in winning the league title. Dave Stoner also got
into the limelight by a beautiful slide into home plate, scoring the tying run.
The Northern Ohio League championship was easily captured in an un-
eventful game on May Sth, when Galion met the Shelby Whippets on Shel-
by's home diamond. Marking his first appearance on the mound, Bill Rhine-
hart held the Shelby nine to four hits, while striking out five. The Tigers
were hitting freely, running up a total of twelve hits, winning by a score of
10 to 2. Thus Galion finished its regular league season undefeated to win
the second consecutive league title.
In view of the previous games the Tiger men looked forward to the tour-
nament at Mansfield May ll, where Galion first met Ashland and four other
teams including Shelby, Mansfield High, Mansfield Madison and Willard.
The success of the season guaranteed increasing interest in baseball com-

The intramural program was resumed this year for the first time since
1947. The team captains chosen by E. B. Hannow. athletic director, were
David Stoner, Mike Ventrone, Robert Malone, Bernard Elliker, Tom Zager,
and Bert Downing Cin finishing orderj. The high point man was Mike Ven-
trone with 174 points, the second high, Bob Grubaugh of Stoner's team with
119 points and third high was Dave Stoner with 114 points. The teams of
Stoner and Ventrone were very well matched and although none of the
teams were outclassed at any time, these two seemed to prevail. Ventrone.
Stoner, Grubaugh and Bill lones were the main players followed by Elliker,
Host, Malone, Tucker, Harold Crase, Dale McHenry and Dick St. Clair.
The Hi-Y cup for the Championship Intramural team, which was pre-
sented in 1948, was awarded to Dave Stoner's team-
Act 2, Scene 6 . . . GIRLS' SPURTS
Girls' athletics, while often overlooked, are a very important part of a
high school girl's life. Many hours are spent both in practicing fundamentals
and actually playing familiar sports. Keen competition, while not publicized
like boys' sports, is to be found in all athletic events. ,
The 1949-50 season lines up as follows: In Hockey 70 girls participated
with Bonnie Lake's team taking first place. Two bowling leagues were formed,
Alice Durnwald's and Nancy Tracht's teams chalking up high scores in the
two leagues. Over one hundred girls actively participated in basketball. Ruth
Bannow and Ianet Younce headed the winning teams in the two leagues.
Volleyball and softball also were among the seasonal group sports. A table
tennis tourney was held with Mary lane Bean, Vera Iune Kellogg, Fran Cole-
man and Ruth Rannow among the winners.
Competition was not limited to our own school but volleyball, basketball,
and softball teams experienced successful games with teams from surround-
ing schools. Points are scored on various activities. The required point scale
is as follows: Sophomores 100, Iuniors 125, Seniors 150. A trophy was award-
ed to the "Girl Athlete of the Year." The honor went to Shirley Quay this year.
2, Scene 7 . . . CHEERLEADERS
This year's cheerleading squad changed their uniforms in the late Fall
and showed up at the first basketball game with bright and shiny new uni-
forms. We all know the cheerleaders. Next to the boys on the athletic field,
the cheerleaders are gazed upon most, when they stop moving about in mad
adieu. The Senior cheerleaders that will be leaving us this year are Fran
Coleman, Ruth Rannow, and Betty Chase.
Fran Coleman was probably known throughout the school as the most
explosive cheerleader on the squad: she seemed to go all ways when she
gave a cheer. Ruth Rannow was a natural candidate for cheerleading, being
tops in girls' athletics, super-sensitive in balance and stamina. Betty "Boop"
Chase was the smallest of the group and showed plenty of pep and an ample
abundance of action.
The Sophomore cheerleaders that were chosen by the student body with
the assistance of the Student Council and the cheerleaders are Mathan Davies
and Iune Nautzinger. These girls will make up the squad along with Marilyn
Hart and Ioe Poland. Ioe and Marilyn have done a fine job this year and
we're sure that they can do as well next year as the Senior cheerleaders did

Interested in athletics? We have just the place for you, the Gir1's Athletic Association.
This club is just full of energetic girls who never seem to tire of being in the game.
This year's club chose the athlete of the year. The honor was earned by Shirley Quay.
It you have ever watched Shirley play it won't be hard to guess why she was chosen.
The annual Christmas formal was held in the Senior High School gymnasium. The
decorations were rather unusual this year. The theme carried out was that of a cozy room,
and the girls did very Well at it. How We all Wanted to open those beautiful packages!
In order to qualify for membership in the Girl's Athletic Association you must earn a
certain number of points. These points are earned through participation in school sports.
Sophomores who wish to become members of the G. A. A. must earn 100 points, juniors
must have 125 points, and the seniors must have 150 points. Sophomores who have
earned enough points are initiated into the club at the end of the year. Ah! those initia-
This year's club was composed of 72 junior and senior girls under the able leadership
of lean Bercaw, the club president.
Colleen Sharrock, Annette LaForrest, Donna Daniel served as assistants to lean: they
served in the capacity ot vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively.

The 1949-1950 secretarial books of the Hi-Y bulge with an impressive record of worthy
activities. Impressive service projects challenged the integrity of every one of the fifty-nine
members. Clean-up on the Saturday mornings following the football games was not the
easiest task in the world, but the boys felt proud of their responsibilities when the football
teams thanked them for the abundance of food the Hi-Y supplied to players after the game.
The good food and oratory devoured and consumed at the Father and Son Banquet:
the lasting inspiration gained at the Findlay Conference, Camp Nelson Dodd and Camp
Pittenger: the blessings counted at the Thanksgiving Assembly: and the reverence procured
from the chaplain's candle light service all will never be forgotten by the members.
The ghost house, Don Beach's head and a thousand donuts all were part of the suc-
cessful Hallowe'en Party. This project showed that it is possible to do a lot of good and
have a lot of fun at the same time.
Other projects included drafting a new constitution: having joint meetings with the Blue
Tri and G. R.: serving as waiters at the Masonic Temple: attending various churches: and
having a bowling tournament. .
The Galion Hi-Y was host to the district Hi-Y Conference, where the election of Bob
Blanz as state secretary-treasurer was formally announced.
On April 21st the 1950-51 officers, who were elected in February, were formally in-
stalled in front of the student body. Bill Shindledecker will pilot the 1950-51 club.
The Bucyrus co-ed swimming party and the Sweetheart party guaranteed that the
graduating members will be proud to say, "I was a Hi-Y member." A

The Girl Reserves have set a mark this year which should serve as a worthwhile goal
for its incoming members.
The girls, in conjunction with the Hi-Y and Blue Tri, gave the community a Hallowe'en
Party for the youngsters of Galion. The girls donated and decorated the beautiful tree,
which you saw in the hall, at Christmas time. In an effort to do something for the school
the Girl Reserves donated five sets of Christmas tree lights for future use by any and all
The girls did something new when they organized a glee club this year- The glee club
made two public appearances, and added to the enjoyment of many club meetings. The
club has made a donation to the assembly fund which enabled a few more students to see
Hamlet. As their final project for the year, the club sponsored a bake sale, the proceeds
of which were donated to the juke box fund.
Now as we delve into the G. R. social calendar We find the annual Sweetheart Party.
This party introduced a new trend in decoration and entertainment which was carried out
by others the remainder of the year. The club held a hobo party which was quite a con-
trast to the refined air of the Sweetheart Party. The final social event of the year was the
Senior Farewell which was held May 8.
These projects were made possible only through the co-operation and interest of the
club members and officers. Miss Beach the sponsor gave new life to the club with her
many new ideas and suggestions.
Club officers for 1950 were: Ruth Rannow, president: Carol Tracht, vice-president: Pat
Ballance. secretary: Pat Beech, treasurer. Members of the cabinet were as follows: Ianet
Craun, Frances Coleman, Beverly Glauner, Pat Whitesell, Barbara Gundrum, Ioyce Nelson
and Donna Daniel.

Seemingly endless events have kept each Blue Triangle member on her toes this
year. To start the ball rolling a hobo party at Heise Park provided a sportive evening of
enjoyment during which the Girl Reserve and Blue Tri members became better acquainted.
The G. R., Blue Tri, and Hi-Y clubs joined to provide the tots of the town with a Hallow-
e'en party at the park. This was the first time a project of this sort was adventured by the
clubs and proved very successful. Later the clubs joined to go Christmas caroling.
At Christmas, food was packed, and taken to the Crawford County Home as a service
of the Blue Tri.
The G. R. and the Blue Tri joined to plan a sweetheart party which provided a gay
formal evening of dancing and entertainment for all.
An assembly was presented to the student body by the Blue Tri. Its theme was a hu-
morous radio and television show. The members took part in the various programs. Half of
the stage was the home scene which was entirely in pantomime with the exception of
Gloria Grosh's "Snazzy", a small dog who played his part, nevertheless, very well.
Once a month the Blue Tri and G. R. unite to attend services at the various churches
of Galion as a matter of training for themselves.
Eileen Barrett, president of the organization, has done a wonderful job of leading the
girls. The other officers are: Vice President Ann Swords, Secretary Beverly Rogers and
Treasurer Marilyn Hart.

" .......... If we're never successful, it won't be distressful, 'cause we
don't care." Such are the final words of the grand finale of the Math Club
Play. From the small germ of an idea, the show took favorable turns, until it
became one of the most successful one night stands ever presented in Galion.
This play, the major project of the year for the club, was an original three-
act musical mellodramatic farce. It was written by Mr. Iackson and members
of the Math Club. The scene was laid in a haunted insane asylum and gave
the cast leeway to do anything. The rest speaks for itself. The production also
was given to the high school students of Galion and Bucyrus.
The club, under the leadership of Robert Malone, has an unusual type
of government. The year's activities were divided among different com-
mittees each composed of club members and each with a junior as chairman
and a senior as advisor. Dues of five cents a meeting are accounted for by
Sec'y-Treas. Beverly Cass. The vice president is Bert Downing.
Weekly programs are prepared by the club members for the education
of the members on problems concerning the mathematical or scientific fields.
Two socials also highlighted the agenda for the year. One was an in-
formal dance featuring an egg throw and an ice dance. The other was a
picnic featuring torn clothes and rare steaks.

The high school photography club is a relatively young organization. Despite the
handicap of a short history, the club's two year existence is filled with many vivid exper-
iences. To gain prestige quickly, the club began doing unusual things and so it has be-
come famous for its "radical" functions.
The club's constitution was adopted in the fall of 1948 with twenty interested charter
members enrolled. No sooner had the club taken root with the other school clubs than it
dove headlong into its first deep mystery. Many of us remember the "Miss Student" con-
test at the annual Photo Club Dance. This year the dance was again revolutionized to a
photographic theme with name bands being flashed on a screen at the end of the dance
floor. Football high-lights were shown at intermission time. Various tests were given at in-
tervals to find cumulative photographic skill. The deep mystery of picture-making and re-
producing is no longer a mystery to a photography club student. This spring the club put
on an assembly which featured a home-made film, the "School Essay".
The governing body of the club was headed by Iohn Wilson. His cabinet included Bob
Cook, vice president: Ioyce Stebbins, secretary, and Bill Stewart, treasurer. The programs
were planned by Richard Williams the first semester and Bonnie Clark the second.

"Better homes for better living" is the aim of the Future Homemakers of America.
All members in this club have had at least two years of Home Economics. There are
no other qualifications for membership. Any girl who has an interest in becoming a good
homemaker may join.
The club this year held two rallies, at Holmes-Liberty and Bucyrus. At the county ral-
ly in Bucyrus, Iane Gallentine was elected county treasurer.
Under the leadership of their president, Shirley Ireland, the Club has undertaken many
worthwhile projects, among which was aiding the Red Cross during its blood donation
campaign. Other officers are Betty Mulberg, vice president: Carol Durtschi, secretary, and
lane Hoover, treasurer.
Miss Smith acted as club advisor and helped the girls in planning their rallies and the
senior farewell, which was held the last week of school.
Act 3, Scene 8 . . . CULLEGE CLUB
The College Club, a new born organization, has brought many new and strange faces
into our school. These new faces were not those of students but those of college workers.
Numerous talks of college work and training were heard in the past year. Mr. Durance
did most of the arranging dates of speakers and the club members sat back and gath-
ered in the good advice of the versed orators. The club had no formal officers and seldom
had a full membership on hand for any one speaker. Committees of the several more
popular occupations and professions were made to thoroughly study them and report back
to the club.
Act 3, Scene 9 . . . LATIN CLUB
The Latn Club is another of our newly organized clubs this year. The membership is
now twenty and it is steadily growing.
The purpose of the club is to promote a better understanding of Latin through a study
of the background of the early Romans. The club has adopted a constitution, and under
the guidance of Miss DeWitt, has taken its first faltering steps.
The club officers for 1950 were Elaine Hottenroth, president: Marilyn King, vice presi-
dent: Robert Corry, secretary, and Gail Lucas, treasurer.
Stage Decorations . . . ART CLASS
For the first time we would like to present to you a group of people who are certainly
worthy of recognition-the art class of Galion High School.
You have probably seen the clever favors at the school banquets. the original posters
for all occasions, and the colorful programs at the school concerts. All of these are the re-
sults of the work of these people.
Perhaps you have admired the small hand marking through show case last year and
the stained glass windows used behind the choir. The windows alone took three months of
planning and hard work. This year color was added to the football games by the many
animals parading across the field. These were just another product of the class.
Not only do they perform services for the school but also for various organizations of
the city. Included in this group is the American Bed Cross.
None of these activities would have been possible without Mrs. F. W. Liddell, whose
skill is known to us all.
Seniors in the art class and the number of years they have taken art, are as follows:
Pat Beech, 47 Beverly Cass, 1: Betty Chase, Z: Ianet Craun, 1: Eleanor Decker, 1: Bonnie

For those who prefer the manual art, we have the shop, just for them set apart. The
shop has taken on the new look. Since last year all machines have been rearranged and
motorized. There is one thing they forgot to motorize-the broom-isn't it a pity! The
shop boys have taken several field trips this year, visiting the Galion Iron Works, Per-
fection, Freese Works, and the Ohio Seamless Tube Company at Shelby.
As a result of their work in the shop five senior boys have been placed in jobs. Next
year Mr. Aplas plans to revise the shop program by having junior and senior boys work
together. But don't get the idea it's all work and no play in shop. The boys had a big pic-
nic May 5 at Pleasant Hill. This project gives you an idea of the versatility of these boys:
they do everything from repairing cars to setting up Christmas trees.
One Night Stand . . . IUNIUR CLASS PLAY
Smiles oi accomplishment are rightly written on the faces of Arm Swords, Director Miriam Sayre,
Shirley Ireland, Bill Stewart, Nancy Tracht, Phyllis Chillik, Carmela Morales and Dick Host.
Hidden behind their makeup are Iames Beecher, Gloria Grosh, Bill Shindeldecker, Carol Ness.
Ioe Poland, Aileen Bashofl, Louis Corwin, Phyllis Cassidy.
Presenting the juniors in their first starring role, "Old Doc", a comedy in three acts.
The juniors put on a show as would old stage veterans. The play starred Bill Stewart
in the title role. He was supported by an all-star cast, consisting of Gloria Grosh, Aileen
Bashofi, Carmela Morales, Phyllis Cassidy, Shirley Ireland, Nancy Tracht, Phyllis Chil-
lik, Ioe Poland, Bill Shindledecker, Louis Corwin, Carol Ness, Iim Beecher, Ann Swords
and Dick Host.
The play was a huge success and played to a capacity audience. The story was built
around an old country doctor who wanted his son to take over his practice when the old
doc was no longer able to keep up his practice. But as will always happen, there were
complicatons. After many trials and tribulations, however, everything was worked out to
a happy climax. The play was under the direction of Miss Miriam Sayre, who is in her own
right an accomplished actress. -
Stock Company . . . SENIDR CLASS PLAY
Receiving detailed instruction from director, Miss Sayre, are Blanz. B. Wisler, P. Wisler, Wilson,
Clark, Hollenshead, Durnwald, Stoner, Martin, Malone, Nelson, and Ballance.
The courtroom scene included: Graham, Lamb, Quay, Booth. Hessenauer, Hartwell, Beech, Mur-
phy, Moore. McElhatten, and Gundrum.
The lights dim and the curtain rises on "Ladies of the Iury", a comedy in three acts.
The play was acclaimed a success, and why not, with such accomplished actors as: Pat
Beech, as defendant, on trial for murder: Pat Ballance, a wealthy society woman, who
changes the minds and votes of the jurors: Bob Blanz, a jury foreman. Wonderful character
portraits were given by Pat Wisler, a likeable old Irish woman: Joyce Nelson, as Miss
Pratt, bigoted spinster: Pat Martin, as a flashy box-office queen, who falls in love with Bob
Malone: Iohn Wilson and Alice Durnwald, young lovers: Bill Wisler, as an Irish gardener.
Witnesses were Betty Hartwell and Iohn Moore. The lawyers were well played by Bill
Lamb and Richard Graham. Iohn Quay gave an excellent portrayal of the judge. Humor
was added by Harold Hessenauer, officer, and Don Booth, clerk of courts. Long remembered
will be David Stoner, ex-soldier: Ann Clark, as the southern belle, and lack Hollanshead, as
a real estate broker,

As the guiding light for Galion High School, the Lantern has been pub-
lished this year for the enjoyment of all students.
One of the staH's many activities was the sponsoring of a dance follow-
ing the Willard football game, at which they honored Pat Martin, this year's
Football Queen. They also journeyed to Kent State University on April 22,
for the annual Iournalism Convention. ln order to raise money for the luke
Box Fund, the staff sponsored a contest which attracted many participants.
Five seniors have been honored by the Lantern in the publications this
year. They were Bob Malone, Bob Blanz, Howard Kochheiser, Ruth Rannow
and Bill Wisler.
Although many problems arise with the publishing of the paper, these
have been overcome and the paper has been a success. Under the editorship
of Eileen Barrett and Dick Powers, and the supervision of'Mrs. Sentieri, the
staff can again be proud of their paper.
Management . . . STUDE T CDUNCIL
"We the student body of the l
Galion High School, in order to
promote the general welfare, to
instill a sense of responsibility
and self-control, and to create
harmony in all student activities,
do establish this constitution."
Many years of both dreams
and hard work have gone into
the establishment of student gov-
ernment and better student and
faculty co-ordination, which the
preceding preamble represents.
The council is composed of one
representative from each home- ,
room and the three class presi- T
dents. The constitution gives the
council the following powers: to
recognize, charter, and regulate
all student organizations, to reg-
ulate all student activities, to pro-
vide for the election of the cheerleaders, to present all recognition awards, to raise money
as speciiied, to approve assemblies, and to enact any legislation necessary and proper in
carrying out the purpose or powers of the constitution.

was vice president: Eileen Barrett was chosen secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Durance served
as advisor. The class of 1950 is proud to have helped form the council and hopes the fu-
ture will be full of achievements.

For over fifty years the Spy has been the medium through which the seniors have
depicted life in Galion High. Having reached the mark of the mid-century, the staff again
has the privilege of bringing the Spy to you. The production of the year book is a com-
plicated procedure, which has been equally perplexing to all members of the Spy staff.
Scarcely had school begun when Bob Blanz, along with the staff began the vitally import-
ant job of securing advertisements. With a complete filing system and the city divided into
zones, Ierry Baehr, Bev. Cass, Ann Clark, Ianet Craun, Bert Downing, Bev. Glauner, Pat
Martin, Ruth Rannow and Dave Stoner completed the job of contacting all the business
