Introducing - - -
The 1951 Spy! We sincerely hope that all
who read this record of Galion High School,
which is another chapter in her long and glo-
rious history, will enjoy its contents and be able
to bring back forgotten incidents or small
anecdotes which we treasure so highly.
Much work, worry, and perspiration have
gone into the making of this bool: but each
minute spent in arduous preparation has been
well worth while. We of the Spy Staff feel
proud of our finished product and hope you,
too, will be as glad to carry this issue of our
school's Annual as any of its predecessors.
Read on, the best is yet to he!
We dedicate the 1951 Spy . . .
To those who fell the strong hand of Uncle Sam and others whose sense of duty drew
them into the armed forces, we dedicate the 1951 Spy. We feel that in this time of crises there
is nothing that deserves our praise and prayers more than these boys. To our classmates who
have been taken from us and for the many more that will soon go, we say-Good luck and God
Administration . . .
The balance wheels of Galion High School
are the offices of M. E. Shank, Superintend-
ent, and E. R. Pickering, Principal.
Every student has at some time or other
been in these offices, perhaps not as often
in the Central office, but we do find the
Principal's office a pretty busy little place.
Of course, when students do find an occa-
sion to enter these offices, their problems
are easily and efficiently solved by Miss Mon-
roe, Miss Nelson or Miss Beck. Miss Monroe
and Nliss Nelson are quite well known to
everyone at the high school, and Mr. Pick-
ering's right hand girl, Ruth Ann Beck, who
is a newcomer, has become quite a pal of
At the head of the Administrative Depart-
ment is Mr. Shank, who has charge of all
Galion city schools and is kept busy at this
job. Often he puts in overtime to keep our
wheels running smoothly. Most students see
little of Mr. Shank, but he does appear at
many of our assemblies and he always can
be found when an individual student has a
problem, or a crisis arises at school which
requires his excellent judgment and advice.
W Perhaps the H1311 who kept US 011. OLII' toes

quite a job with three hundred and fifty stu-
dents who often are forgetful about one thing
or another. For an example, from the time
school starts in the morning, Mr. Pickering
is willing at any time of the day, to offer some
good advice to a perplexed student who is hav-
ing trouble with a schedule or plans for future
careers. This help has been greatly appreciat-
ed by many students of Galion High.
The smaller spokes in our great revolving
wheel are the faculty members, who patiently
put up with our faces every day and try to
invade our sacred sanctums with bits of knowl-
This year, Galion High added quite a few
new faces to its list of teachers, and by this
time they are well known and liked by all
Most students will agree that Galion has a
fine list of faculty members who have helped
them over rough spots during the year. These
teachers have a sense of humor even though
their jobs do get nerve wracking at times.
We must also give credit where credit is
due to these teachers who have helped in club
and social activities during the year.
OE course, we must come to the big wheel
itself which is the Board of Education.
The people serving on this board are acting
in the interests of all citizens of Galion, and
they are vitally interested in the students as
a group and as individuals.
They are constantly aware of the schools,
and students' needs, and they try to remedy
these needs by prescribing what they think is
the proper procedure.
Although the board members are often crit-
icized, their actions are for the betterment and
progress of our school system, and they should
be highly praised by all for their excellent
It takes quite a few people to make up the
school system and keep it running smoothly
as we have seen. With all the faculty, admin-
istrative members and students together, Gal-
ion High School is a busy, but pleasant school.

our pins were knocked from under us when
we hit high school. After getting adjusted to
high school as Sophomores, however, we had
a fine year with such extra-curricular activities
as dancing, club life and a beautiful hop. As
Juniors, the class came into its own, forming
the backbone of many clubs and serving as a
staying influence on the new Sophomores. We
presented the Seniors a reception that will long
be remembered for its decorations and espe-
cially for the wonderful music of Sammy
Bowen and his orchestra.
Finally, battle scarred and weary, we plunged
into our last year of high school. For most
of us it has been one activity after another
till we are run ragged, but who cares? It is all
over now. It's been swell and if we all had it
to do over again, we would do itl

Classes, Activities and Clubs . . .
Our Illustrious Math Teacher
This year we have dealt with our extra-cur-
licular program in perhaps a different manner
than is generally used. By doubling two clubs
on one page, we feel we can cut down a bor-
ing Writeup and give you the plain, simple
and interesting facts as to what each club has
and hasn't accomplished through the year. In
these brief sketches also, we give particular
attention to the officers of each organization
who are so frequently overlooked.
The section of the Annual into which you
are about to plunge includes organizations and
honors outside of regular club activities. We
have given considerable space to these, for
achievements outside of the scholastic realm
are not to be overlooked.
Our clubs and societies had a vigorous
schedule this year and a few failed to accom-
plish all that was expected of them. However,
this is to be expected from a group of students
who belong to almost every organization in
Galion High School and cannot divide their
attentions equally. For the most part, Galion
High School has had a very successful year
in regard to club assemblies, talent shows and
various other extra-curricular feats of skill.
Not to be forgotten are the splendid and
many times thankless jobs of our sponsors
who spent many hours of deliberation over
the policy of a club or extra rehearsals for an
assembly. If it hadn't been for certain faculty
advisors, several organizations would have died
at the very beginning.
We hope you'll enjoy our presentation of
the 1950-51 activities at Galion High and will
have many hours of enjoyment and remem-
brances after reading this account.
Girls' Athletic Association
This year the Girl's Athletic Association was
composed of 62 junior and senior girls, under
the able guidance of their sponsor, Miss Rose
In order to be a member of the Girl's Ath-
letic Association, the girls have had to give
much of their time and effort in earning the
number of points required. These points are
earned by participation in school sports, and
by selling basketball and football schedule
pencils and running check rooms at basketball
games. Sophomores who wished to become
members of the G. A. A. had to earn 100
points, juniors and seniors 125 points. By
earning these points the girls were given
awards at the pot luck dinner on May 8. The
sophomore initiation was also held at this time.
Sophomores received the numeral "53", jun-
iors the six-inch "G", and the seniors the eight-
The girls varsity volleyball and basketball
teams have had a very successful season. The
volleyball team boasts a record of seven wins
and one loss.
The Social Highlight of the G. A. A. was
the annual Christmas formal, which was held
in the Senior High School Gymnasium on the
evening of December 9. The theme of the
dance was a winter wonderland with the atten-
tion centered on a snow scene across the east
end of the gymnasium. The girls and their
escorts danced to the music of Ken Brague's
orchestra amid sparkling stars and festive
Christmas trees and lights.

Future Homemakers ofdmerica
"It takes a heap of a lot of living in a house
to make it a home," is the motto of the Future
Homemakers of America which meets every
second and fourth Thursday of each month.
Some of the projects the FHA have accom-
plished this year are: A style show featuring
the garments that were made by the home
economics classes and also clothing from dif-
ferent local storesg a party for the whole school
which featured all kinds of dancingg they pro-
vided a Nursery for the Gasco Cooking
Schoolg contributed to the FHA scholarship
and camp fund, attended the FHA rally in
Mt. Zion and sent this year's officers to the
Mt. Gilead Workshop last fall.
The Galion Club acted as host for the spring
Rally. Betty Brown was chosen as president
for the county. The clubs present were Bucy-
rus, Holmes Liberty, Mt. Zion, and Tito.
The FHA held their annual Spring Dance
on April 13. The theme was a Kids' dance.
The club's social program was brought to a
close by the annual farewell party held for the
seniors early in May.
As a means of raising money the girls sold
plastic towels and other items.

The Hi-Y Club
The Hi-Y's first project of the year was its
very effective Thanksgiving Day assembly in
which Reverend Paul Walter delivered the
major portion of the program and Mr. Fogt
directed the group singing.
The induction of the new members was in
the capable hands of Harold Beach. The elec-
tion of next year's officers was held during the
sixth six weeks period, so that the last few
weeks the new ofhcers could take over and have
a taste of the responsibility that goes hand in
hand with the glory of having their names
linked with these titles.
The Hi-Y organized a basketball team this
year participating in several contests with the
Galion Jay-Vees. A tournament for the Hi-Y
teams of this district was held at Marion.
On February 25, the members of the Hi-Y,
G. R., and Blue Tri attended a District Tri-
Hi-Y and Hi-Y conference at Marion.
The final affair of the year 1951 for the
I-Ii-Y was its annual Sweetheart Party held
March 16 at the East School Gymnasium. The
outstanding event of the evening was the pro-
gram presented according to the maxim "some-
thing old, something new, something borrowed
and something blue." The Tigerettes, Miss
Sayre, Mr. Jackson and Mrs. Firestone, plus
a grand finale kept the guests busy listening
to and enjoying the entertainment.

The Math Club
The Math Club this year was practically a
thing in the abstract. The old members started
the club in fine spirits and with ambitious pur-
poses for the year including another assembly.
Ofhcers were elected, programs planned, and
new members inducted.
Somehow these plans fell through. Meetings
began to lag and about the middle of the year
the club was dissolved. This, in brief, is the
record of the 1951 Math Club of Galion I-ligh
School. Although it d0esn't sound too im-
pressive, they did sponsor a dance and con-
tributed to various service funds. Better luck
next year, folks!

To start things off right, the G. R. girls
combined with the members of the Blue Tri-
angle club in giving a tea for incoming Soph-
omores early in the fall.
Once again, the G. R. choir had a banner
year, with Nancy Tracht performing in the role
of director and doing a fine job of it at that.
They participated in a Christmas program
given with the Blue Tri for the Hi-Y members.
Some of the school projects included a one
act play presented before the student body in
November. The play was directed by Gloria
Grosh. Also, the girls, as is the custom, dec-
orated the Christmas tree in che central hall.
Many times the girls were asked to worlc
in a bake sale and sell candy and popcorn at
The members of the Blue Tri and G. R. at-
tended church once a month, each time visiting
a different church. The Hi-Y also joined them
in attending services at St. Joseph's church
one Sunday morning.
The highlight of the year came on February
Znd. The G. R. and Blue Tri formal was a tre-
mendous success and the girls and their escorts
will never forget the fine time they had on
this lovely evening.
Marilyn King, President of the Blue Tri
club, led her members through a very success-
ful year. Early in the fall, the Blue Tri mem-
bers met with the G. R. Girls for a hobo party.
The mixer proved a good idea and a hilarious
time was had by all.
The girls held a balce sale as one of their
projects to raise money for war weapons.
They combined forces with the G. R girls in
going to church en masse once a month. These
ventures were well rewarded with huge turn-
Blue Triangle members also had a hand in
the assembly which the G. R. and they pre-
sented for the Hi-Y. Several members took
part in the program, reading selections or giv-
ing a few choice remarks.
Finally, the most outstanding of all events
-to the members, anyway-came in February.
The formal dance put on by the Blue Tri and
G. R. members proved to be the finest ever
and who will ever forget the heavenly music
of Ken Brague's orchestra.

The College Club
Under the excellent guidance of Mr. Zart-
man, sponsor, assisted by President Everett
Sparks, Vice President Nancy Trachtg and
Secretary-Treasurer Carol Ness, the work of
the College Club came to a successful close.
The most profitable and interesting project
of the school year was Career Day held on
February 23 at which time all students in the
9th-12th grades attended discussions of their
first and second occupations. Members of the
college club acted as guides in making sure
that students reached the correct rooms. They
introduced the speakers who, in turn, explained
their jobs and the education required to reach
Ar the regular meetings of the Club, which
were held the first and third Wednesdays of
each month, various representatives of colleges
throughout the State of Ohio explained the
functions of their particular schools. This was
a wonderful opportunity for us to acquaint
ourselves with several colleges which we might
be interested in attending after graduation.
The College Club, one of the most recently
organized clubs in Galion High School, has
proved itself to be a very profitable addition
to the extra curricular activities of the school.
We sincerely hope it may be continued in the

The Latin Club
The Latin Club, this year has engaged in
many activities and shows promise of becom-
ing one of the school's most active organiza-
tions. Ar the first of the school year the mem-
bers of the club decided to apply for member-
ship in the Junior Classical League, a national
organization. The purpose of the League is
not merely to promote interest in Latin but
also in the fine arts.
The club has undertaken several projects
this year. One of the most interesting of these
was the formal initiation for the new members.
This was the ofiicial initiation of the Junior
Classical League and was a very impressive
ceremony. The club also planned an assembly
for the student body and a Roman banquet.
In the future, the banquet and assembly pro-
gram will be a definite part of the club's curri-
culum. The customary picnic was held at the
close of the school year. Miss DeWitt is the

Boys and Girls State
Using a new location last year, the American
Legion presented Boys' State to the public with
a bang. Camp Perry, on Lake Erie, was the site
of the vigorous activities involved for two
weeks here. Although the largest ever, with
1005 boys attending, Boys' State again ac-
complished what was expected of them. Every
boy that attended came away feeling richer in
friendship and the laws of the land. Living
quarters consisted of small army huts with four
fellows in each. Two rows of cabins made up

The Spy Staff
The 1951 Spy seemed an unsurmountable
task and had Editor Bernard Elliker sweating
up till the very last, when the books were fi-
nally finished and delivered. Putting out a
yearbook. is always a tremendous job and this
year with prices rising steadily, materials get-
ting scarce, and fewer staff members, the Spy
was definitely a challenge. Those who worked
the hardest, however, felt great relief and satis-
faction when the book finally came out.
Qur sincere thanks and appreciation go to
two juniors who we feel did more than their
share in helping to complete the annual. Shir-
ley McManigell mounted nearly all the pictures
and Bonnie Clark sold about 80 Spys. Also
we would like to thank many of the girls who
gave up several free nights to proofread and
Nadine Bosler, Classes editor, made sure
that all Seniors had their pictures taken and
their activities recorded. She then proceeded
to the rest of the classes, making arrangements
to have the pictures taken and the stories
written. Nancy Tracht was in charge of the
copyreading and helped with the typing of
copy. Helen Blackhall saw to it that pictures
were taken of the clubs and other societies and
that these stories were written. Paul Shuttera,
Sports editor, did a superb job on all the
sports write-ups. All others who helped are
too numerous to mention, but everyone that
had a part has profited greatly from it.
Our Business Manager was Jim Beecher who
would make a very fine King Midas. I-le knows
how to stretch that green stuff and make it last.
Dale Bonsteel had the diflicult job of Ad-
vertising Manager. After a little difliculty in
getting his cohorts to get out and sell ads, all
came to an agreement and the 1951 Spy is now
a reality. Hope you like it!

The juniors . . .
This year,s Junior Class, the class of '52,
stepped into a phase of class history excelled
by few classes before them.
Led by a fine group of officers, the class
started the year with the presentation of the
annual Junior Class play.
The selection was "Mother Is a Freshman."
The night of the play was a milestone in
class history in itself.
Playing to the largest group ever to attend a
class play, the play was a tremendous hit.
The cast will long be remembered by their
fellow classmates for that evening's entertain-
After the performance, a hilarious party
was held at which these Juniors gave vent to
their feelings, produced by doing such a grand
job of acting.
Greater things were yet to come.
For some fifteen years, Galion High School
has tried to establish a traditional crest class
ring-a crest that would be as much a part of
G. H. S. as the famed Galion Tiger.
Class President Paul Schuttera and ring
committee chairman Jack Callendar presented
the matter and were awarded a unanimous vote
in favor of the crest.
Much of the success of the class came from
the fine guidance and help given by the class
sponsors, Miss Tracht and Mr. I-Iixon. They
were always willing to help the officers iron
out the rough spots.
The line leadership displayed by the class
officers, President, Paul Schuttera, Vice-Pres-
ident, Bill Enders, Secretary, Carol Powers,
and Treasurer, Dick Cope, was shown in every
class project. They worked together with en-
thusiasm and vigor through the entire year.
Co-operation was the key-note to the class's
success. Not only the ofiicers and sponsors, but
the class as'a whole worked well together.
Every member of the class worked on some
project and the fine co-operation they dis-
played shows that the class of '52 is fully ready
to take over the vacancy left by the graduat-
The "Spy Varieties of 1951", presented on
April 5th, featured many Juniors, such as Jane
Metz at the piano and Dick Kerr with his bat-
on, to mention only a few. Without the help
of the class of ,52, this show would never have

body. Ray Seif took over the job for the eve-
Climaxing the year's activities, of course, is
the Junior-Senior reception-the grandest of
all the formals. The Juniors sponsored sev-
eral dances during the year in order to raise
money for the wonderful reception given for
the Seniors. They are certainly to be com-
mended for their fine spirit in prompt pay-
ment of class dues and always being ready to
lend a helping hand to make the class of '52
The Class of '51 was honored by a beauti-
fully decorated gym. The theme was that of
the famous Stork Club. The real thing coulcln't
have been more attractive.
The Stork. Club complete with' padded punch
bar, waiters and all the trimmings the Seniors
were welcomed in fine style.
Many hours of preparation went into the
project, and the Oh's and Ah,s of the amazed
guests were tribute enough to the committees
who worked so untiringly.
Juniors here! Juniors there! was the cry
heard throughout the school.
Few activities were missed by the ambitious
juniors. So, in concluding this brief review of
these marvelous things accomplished by this
year's Juniors, we say: Well done, Class of '52
-but remember, there are some mighty line
folks who are graduating this year and you're
going to have to .keep right up there on your
toes to 611 their shoes. This is your challenge,
Juniors. Go to it!

Sophomores . . .
Who got the blame for eating and talking
the loudest during the assemblies? The Soph-
omores, of course. Who didn't know where the
right rooms were? Again it was the Soph-
omores. But they took it lightly and finally be-
came accustomed to Galion I-Iigh School.
The Sophs came to us as Junior High cham-
pions in both basketball and football, which
is a hard record to beat. Their Junior Varsity
has also done very well this year in basketball.
The Sophomores were alert and very active.
The whole class got together and worked hard
to sponsor a dance which was held during
football season and proved to be very success-
ful. The proceeds from this dance were com-
bined with the class Clues to finance their class
party, the annual "Sophomore I-lop."
In order to have more fun at the Hop, the
Sophs decided to learn how to square dance.
Many activity periods were spent in the gym
by the class while learning to "swing your
After many months of preparation and dec-
orating, the Sophomore Hop was held on

colors, were artistically carried out in the dec-

and square dancing. The night of the Hop will

Although the Seniors are unlucky because
of leaving dear old Galion High School, the
Sophs have two more years to get well ac-
quainted with the teachers. The teachers are
looking forward to this and we are sure the
Sophs will follow in the footsteps of classes
which have gone before them. Then when they
are Juniors and Seniors they can watch the
Sophomores wandering around and getting
The class is composed of good material and
was ably led by their officers who kept the
class informed, appointed committees, trans-
acted business matters and planned the big
events of the future. Bill Treisch led the class
as President, and Bill Carpenter assisted him
as Vice-President. Judy Breese took care of
the records and Martha Pace handled the class
treasury. Miss Emmenegger was the class spon-
sor and her assistance was greatly appreciated
The class of '53 has high ideals and intends
to measure up to the good examples set before
them. We are expecting a lot from the Soph-
omore class and we're sure to hear from them
in the future.

NO SLEEP TONIGHT AT LISSE'S
The Band . . .
Strike up the band! Did you ever stop to
think how dead a football game or some civic
occasion is without the old band blowing forth
some stirring march or playing the sweet
strains of our national' anthem.
Marvin Fogt came as a new band director
last fall with a tremendous task before him.
The band had had no previous practices before
school started and many new members were
poorly versed in the art of marching fas a few
still arell. Nevertheless, in two weeks he had
that band stepping high and mighty as though
old Ohio State itself were here.
Many intricate formations were mapped out
by Mr. Fogt and successfully executed at the
halftime ceremonies. Finally, a gala show was
presented on homecoming night and the band
presented roses to Eileen Barrett, Queen.
Swinging into concert with its overtures and
classical music, the band found it rather hard
to pull away from blowing their brains out,
but finally calmed down after a few weeks. A
winter concert was presented in December,
along with the Choir and Glee Club. The band
Drum Majorette, Nancy Tracht
participated in several civic occasions honor-
ing noted personages who came here for one
reason .or another.
In the spring, another concert was given and
finally the band traveled to Willard for the
annual NOL Band Festival.
The ofiicers for the year 1950-51 were Ber-
nard Elliker, Presidentg Nancy Tracht, Vice
Presidentg Eileen Barrett, Sec'y-Treas.5 Dale
Our drum majorette was Nancy Tracht,
whom Galion is very sorry to see leave. She
is a fine twirler and knows when and how to
use that whistle of hers.
However, there is some consolation in the
fact that Richard Kerr, who co-starred with
Nancy two years, will probably come into his
own next year. Dick is recognized as one of the
best twirlers around.
All who were in the band this year enjoyed
themselves immensely and we know that Mr.
Fogt will produce even greater aggregations
in the years to come.

From the walls of the music room on third
period Monday, Wednesday, and Friday,
could be heard the melodious music of Pro-
fessor Fogt and his choristers making with the
strains of a spiritual or a secular number.
The Choir had a very prosperous year under
the inspiring direction of Mr. Marvin W. Fogt.
They presented a winter and spring concert
along with the band and the boys' glee club.
The choir also had a part in the Baccalaureate
services, and presented the Christmas and
Easter assembly programs.
Jane Metz proved herself a very able ac-
Galion was the host for the Choir Festival
which featured a mass choir of three hundred
voices in which were choirs from Bucyrus, Nor-
walk, Upper Sandusky, and Galion.
At the beginning of the year, the girls badly
out-numbered the boys, but the boys picked
up strength as the year went on.
The choir went to the Children's Hoine
to join in their annual Christmas program and
afterward went to the Griebling home for a

Orchestra . . .
Under Nlarvin Fogtys direction the orchestra
really went all out to earn its rightful place in
the music department of our school this year.
After presenting several local programs and
many strenuous rehearsals the members of the
orchestra traveled to Norwalk for the N.O.L.
Orchestra Festival where everyone had a won-
derful time and really gave a fine performance.
The members should be congratulated for giv-
ing up their time and talcing such an interest
for the majority of rehearsals were held after
school until hve o,cloclc.
Boys' Glee Club . . .
After almost falling apart last year, the
Glee Gluh made an amazing comeback this
year, the shot in the arm being provided by
Mr. Fogt. The boys appeared often in school
programs and various civic occasions. They
became well-versed in the art of close harmony.
Wfe will never forget their renditions of l'The
Old Song" and !'Ain,t That A Shame." Bill
Wiggins served as president of the organiza-
tion. We are looking forward to the time when
the Glee Club will lJe a well-established mu-

Championship Basketball Team . . .
The Galion Tigers, under the watchful eye
of Coach Dick Backensto, made Galion cage
history this season. Paced by the high scoring
All-Ohio Ray Seif, the Tigers won their first
title since 1931.
The Tigers copped their championship by
downing the Willard Flashes 65 to 47. By vir-
tue of this win Galion gained a share in the
League championship with Bucyrus. The team
also compiled the best won-loss record in the
last twenty-one years. The team closed the sea-
son with a record of 14 victories in 18 con-
tests. Fine teamwork and high spirit keynoted
the season's play.
The Tigers played the last three games of
the season without the services of Captain Ray
Seif. Still, they tried to keep up the torrid
Mansperger, Bill Enders, Ken McManigel1,
Everett Sparks and Bill Rhinehart showed they
were still championship bound by their fiery
The final game with Willard was one of the
finest shows of hardwood teamwork any Gal-
ion team has displayed in many, many years.
Losing but one league game during the sea-
son, the Tigers showed teamwork plus. Galion
fans were thrilled by the sharp passing and
shooting of the Tigers during the season. Af-
ter winning the opener with Mt. Vernon 54 to
51, the Tigers set their season goal sights on
a championship, and kept eyeing this mark
all the way, as the record shows.
Galion dropped their second game to Ash-
land after a slow first half, 68 to 64. The
Tigers then started onward in high speed and
paced by the 24 point average of Captain Ray
Seif, they went on to win the next seven
straight games. They were stopped in the next
game by a two-point margin. Washington
Court House stalled the Tigers and the clock
to a 71-69 victory.
Never to be daunted, the old tiger came
roaring back! This time to boast an eight game
winning streak before being halted by Shelby.
The Tigers hit the season's rough spot in the
Marion game when Ray Seif suffered a torn
knee ligament which sidelined him until the
tournament game. Nevertheless the Tigers
squeezed by Marion, 47 to 46.
But it was only to lose a heart-breaker to
Shelby the next week. This was even worse
because it became the Tigers' only league loss.
They slumped just a little, but when the chips
were down and the championship at stake, the
team stepped back into the victory trail and
produced the needed results.
We can be sure that G. H. S. will always
think. of the 1950-51 basketball squad as
champions in every sense of the word.
Climaxing the terrific season was the pub-
lication of the All-Ohio and All-Northern
Ohio League selections.
Ending a four-year campaign on Galion
cage teams, this year's captain Ray Seif re-
ceived a first team berth on the All-Ohio
team. I-le is the second Galion athlete to re-

away, Mr. Kerin, coach.
Kneeling-H. Hathaway, Callender, Scherer, Crall, McManigell, Enders,
The Galion Hi Tigers embarked on another
promising baseball season March 29th. Field-
ing almost the same team that won the State
runners up title last year, the Tigers are again
out for the championship trail. Under the di-
rection of their new coach, Dick Kerin, the
team shows the same spirit, speed and hitting
power that won them honors last season.
Catcher Bill Wisler, third baseman Dave
Stoner and outfielder Jack Tucker were the
only losses through graduation. Returning let-
termen who will pave the way will include:
Bill Enders, the clul:-'s ace pitcher and Versa-
tile inhelderg Hoyt Hathaway, hard hitting
left Helder who will handle some of the catch-
ing dutiesg Ken McManigell, a real speed mer-
chant and great second baseman, and Bill
Rhinehart, the Tigers' reliable first baseman
and pitcher will round out the infield. Harold
Beach will be counted on heavily in the out-
field this year. Ray Seif, star letterman from
last year's squad, will aid the cause greatly if
he recovers from a severe knee injury received
during basketball season.
Many others players complete the squad.
Mike Dougherty, a clever infielder who saw
some action last year, is holding clown second
base when McManigel1 takes over at short-
stop. Bill Crall and Jack Callender are doing
a grand job at third base as Dick Cope and
Hoyt Hathaway are on the catching chores,
alternating with Robb Corry. Dick Thompson
and Randy Vance are two promising sopho-
mores on the squad this year.
Thompson is an outfielder and Vance a
pitcher and first baseman. Two Freshmen who
show promise for future Galion squads are
Glenn Scherer and Don Hathaway, outfielder-s.
Because of the early publication of this
book, no individual scores or records were
available at the time this story was written.
