During these four years, we have studied hard to learn to assume responsibility and think more intelligently so that we can take our places in homes, churches, jobs, and communities. Along with this went the ac- tivities which made school more interesting such as dances, parties, athletics, school- get-to-gethers, and assembly programs. We have tried to instill in this book some of the fun, work, and scenes that we think vou will want to remember. We hope that you treasure it and, as you think of it now and then in future years, you will glance through it and relive some of the happy moments we have captured. Z f f 1 I X f X DEDICATION We, the Class of 1956 of Gays Mills High School, dedi- cate with sincerest gratitude our publication of Millian Memories to our parents, who have given their untiring efforts, many sacrifices, and faithful guidance to help us through school. We, as students, have tried to take full advantage of your time, hopes, and aspirations to make our high school years happy and worth while by studying hard, playing hard, and praying hard. To you then, for all you have done. . . THANKS! In memory of Lonnie Johnston, class of 1959,who was killed on November 24, 1955. Q i ,? f Z 44135 .gif 'KK' vw iivlj 'Nts-' E. V.

In keeping with our motto Work Hard, Play Hard, each Monday afternoon at 3:15 We went to our respective churches for instruction in our religious faiths. We felt that spiritual guidance was such an important part of our school life that we gave up fifteen minutes of our lunch hour on this day. Rev. E. Maus Rev. H. Sherwood On July l, l954, the Buck Creek school dis t r i c t was integrated with Joint District ll of Gays Mills. The school board was then enlarged to five members, three from Gays Mills and two from the outlying districts. 'R Rev. Wm. Muehlenkamp Rev. P.

Through the generosity of a. friend, Mrs. Roy Kimmel, who brought us a branch from a Florida coconut tree, we had the pleasure of watching the coconut ripen and eventually fall from its stem.

Field trips to the post office, the lumber yard, the Independent Press, and the telephone office were taken. Interesting comparisons of business places, kinds of work, kinds of recrea- tion, and other topics were made. A harmony band and folk dancing added variety and interest to our music and physical education program.
