We, the Class of 1946
Geneva High School
Farewell to G. H. S.
By Catherine Trapp
Another year has come and gone,
A year that to us was gloriousg
But its passing has brought to us the dawn
Of the life which is before us.
We are closing now our booksg
We are leaving G. H. S.
For now we must go out into the world
And give to it our best.
So as we leave these dear old halls,
And as we say goodbye,
We turn once more to look and give
Our thanks to Geneva High.
Vv'e, the class of nineteen hundred and forty-six,
to show appreciation for her loyal and understanding
manner, do hereby dedicate the 1946 Acquila to
Mrs. Minnie Cook. '
For the past two years, she has shown untiring
interest in the students and their troubles. Never
once did she refuse to help us, no matter how large
or small the issue.
When the class of '46, in the years to come,
looks back and recalls the two! most important years
of their school lives, Mrs. Cook will be remembered
as one of our favorite persons. i
' It has been a privilege to know you, Mrs. Cook,
and one that the class of '46 will always cherish.
By Catherine Trapp
We are proud to have as the head of our school,
A man who believes in the golden rule,
Living a life that is good and true,
Leaving no task for another to do.
A friend to those who need a friend,
Cheerful to all and a tease, no end!
Efficiency to him is a "must"3
Moreover his judgment is one you can trust,
On mathematics he seems to doteg
Of course he can also the Bible quote.
Respect his adviceg profit by his mannerg
Every way you figure, he really takes the banne1'.
Geneva's new superintendent, Wallace Moore, was born in Old Washington,
Ohio, in the early 1900's. He entered grade school in Cambridge, Ohio. From grade
school he entered high school, at Springfield, Ohio, but was graduated from Upper
Sandusky High School in the college preparatory course. In addition to studying,
he played basketball. In his senior year he Was captain of the team, which is, no
doubt, the reason for the teams success that season.
Mr. Moore immediately after his graduation from high school in 1924 entered
college, graduating from Wittenberg College in 1928 with a Bachelor of ,Arts degree.
First he studied journalism, but 'later he changed his mind and took up public school
He first taught at Kings Mills, near Cincinnatig next at Bucyrus for six years.
He was superintendent at Chatfield, Ohio, for five years before coming to Ashtabula,
Where he remained for five years.
Since coming to G.H.S., Mr. Moore has made many changes which include honor
study halls, revival of the student council, hour periods, and new home economics
Looking toward the future, Mr. Moore has many more plans. He hopes to have
better locker rooms, a new football stadium, and an enlarged school library. He
plans to add vocational agriculture and an arts and craft department.

education in Geneva keeps running smoothly.

ler was elected to fill the vacancy.

Senior Class Officers
To The Seniors
By Superintendent Wallace Moore
The tallest building was supported byscaffolding while it was being
built. The longest bridge span likewise was supported until it was com-
plete. The swiftest race horse was carefully and skillfully watched over
until it was ready for the race. The greatest men and women had to be
cared for and shielded during their early stage of development.
Such is life-guarded, shielded, guided throughout infancy, child-
hood, and adolescence, the agencies of child development gradually
cease their functioning as the youth evidences self ability. As the sup-
porting scaffolding is torn away from a new building, revealing to the
world the beauty and utility of its structure, so does the removing of a
class from our school reveal the individuals with their individual per-
sonalities, abilities, and characters. A truly great American tradition
-individuals with their own personalities and abilities developed in
accordance to their own God given potentialities.
But unlike the building or bridge the individual must continue to
improve, and to seek further information. A new building or new
automobile is probably the best it will ever be the first time it is put
in use. But not so with the individual who is graduated, he can seek
self-improvement through work and study, or he can seek the help of
higher institutions of learning.
Your graduation should be in fact a true commencement-your
start in facing life's problems, obligations, and duties, on your own.
This is your "grand opening" at which you should be modestly proud.

We may say farewell to school,
To classes and teachers toog
But the hardest farewell we ever said,
Was the farewell We said to you.
In our hearts and in our minds,
You are with us still.
Your memories have never faded,
And we know they never will.
So Mary, Philip, and Billy,
Although you've gone from us,
We know it was a heavenly power,
Which placed you in God's trust.

History of the Class of 46
by Arlene Lister '
Spring, summer, fall and winter-the four years of high school life
may be compared to the four seasons of the year. Looking back through
the door of time, one sees the Class of '46 in its various phases of high
The Class, as Freshman, was as green as the buds and leaves of
spring. After the first few days of general confusion and getting in
wrong rooms, things seemed to settle down and at last the group be-
came organized. Dick Cook was elected presidentg Catherine Trapp,
vice presidentg Paul Gruey, secretaryg and Don Geho, treasurer. The
Class of '46 then decided it was time to give G. H. S. a taste of its h1is-
trionic ability and presented a mystery entitled "The Dark Room."
As Sophomores they blossomed out like little weeds under the
summer sun. Their favorite sport was playing tricks on unsuspecting
Freshies. The high officials this year were Bob Strong, president, Betty
Patrick, vice president, Don Beach, secretaryg and Leora Clutter, treas-
urer. The sponsor was Miss Julia Higgins. This must certainly have
been a hectic year because at the end of it, Mrs. Beckwith resigned,
and Miss Hysell took a leave of absence.
In the fall of 1944, the Class returned as Juniors. It had a year
full of hard work and fun. The Junior play "Her First Flame", was
produced, and met with great success. Near the end of the school year,
came the traditional Junior-Senior prom. The theme of an "Old
Southern Mansion" made it one of the most beautiful ever 'to be given
in Geneva. The hard-working officers were Warren Deloria, presidentg
Don Beach, vice president and Loretta Davis, secretary-treasurer. Miss
Sara Stevenson was the class sponsor.
The next year came the "long hard winter" or "trials and tribula-
tions of graduating." The other classes were in for a surprise, how-
ever. The Seniors had returned-but instead of proud, dignified Seniors,
they ran here and there like mad. Our teacher on leave of absence
came back. She really likes Geneva students! The official board con-
sisted of Don Geho, president, Don Beach, vice president, and Wanda
Starkey, secretary-treasurer. The class sponsors were D. J. Caton and
C. A. Frak. '
Now at last, the Seniors are ready to receive their diplomas for
which they had worked so long. All in all, the four years of high school
life are happy memories, and the Class of '46 faces the future with hope

Many of the old class of "46,' turned out yesterday for the wedding
of Carolyn Inscho to Warren Deloria. It was held at the beautiful home
of Norma Harper. Rev. David Blackstone performed the service, and
music was furnished by Arlene Lister. Miss Betty Peters, now a grade
school teacher at old G. H. S., was unable to attend. The grading of
test papers was her reason. Incidentally, four of her star pupils are the
Starkey boys, the sons of Bill Starkey and the former Frances Cook.
Dolores Lucas, the world-famous artist, sent the bride and groom a
lovely painting, but was unable to attend because of a lecture given
at the Women's College in Medina, Pa. By the way, the Dean of Women
at this college is Beverly Stafford, physical instructor, Wanda Starkey,
and English professor, Carroll Sickles-
Dick Cook was recently elected head of the Farm Bureau, with
John Welker as his assistant. '
Our class has done more than its share for the world of sports:
Don Beach recently broadcast the famous Rosebowl Game, in which
Stanley Ruck and Ray "Omar" Eller were the star football players,
each scoring 33Mg points. Bobby Strong, now a professional basket-
ball player, has grown lk inches.
Don Geho has just graduated from Cornell University with high
honors. Bill Elwood is head of the Research Department at General
Electric, with Margaret Cook as his able assistant. Jean Moss, Lois
Nedro, and Sue Troy are all returning from college. Jean is studying
journalismg Lois, medicine, and Sue, law.
- Russell Kelley and Keith Russell are in the Infantry. Those hold-
ing their own in the Navy are Lyle Kelly, Dick Craig, and "Slim" Lehr.
Leora Clutter and Joyce Kelly seem to be doing all right as nurses alt
Jim Hamilton and Bill Rice have their own band now, with Betty
Patrick as their torch singer. They are being featured at present at
Ballwick's Blue Ball Room. In the line of the theatre, Mary Jane
Oakley is script-writer for HM. G. M." with Gertrude McCarty as her
secretary. Their most recent production was "Through The Keyhole",
starring Bob Spring and Marian Paul. When asked what he saw, Bob's
only comment was "WOW ! l"
Shirley Smith and Catherine Trapp are nurses at St. Luke's Hospital
in Cleveland, under Dr. Ward Luther, famed surgeon.
Elinor Schmiel, Margie St. John, and Katherine Steiner own a self-
serve delicatessen in Kukamonga. Signs posted around the store say,
"Serve yourself, but remember, we're watching!" Martha Cowger has
retired after winning a 350.00 prize in a beauty contest. Loretta Davis
is still writing to Paul. Sally Peck and Eva Pasqualone are at the head
of a date-bureau. Esther Carle owns a "How to stay thin, and Eat"

Having come a long way since their long-legged Seventh Grade days, the Juniors
look back over the record of the class of 1947.
In the seventh grade, the shy little boys sidled up to the pretty girls and asked
them to the big brawl of the year, "The Junior High Party." However, the biggest
event affecting all of their lives was the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the entrance of
the United States into the war. Four years of their high school existence was clouded
by war. Many well-liked teachers went into the service of their country. The class
bought War Bonds, and collected paper and tin to aid in the war effort.
Still shy-although not the babies of the school anymore-as Eight Graders,
they went quietly about attending to their own aiairs. Social life consisted mainly
of private parties and "dates". fThe boys were beginning to catch on to the "Wolf"
tactics of their older schoolmatesj I
'In its Freshman year the class sponsored the Junior High Party-a big success.
It also went in for high finance by selling magazine subscriptions and earned 55109
with little effort. Branching out in the direction of dramatics, the class gave two one-
act plays in assemblies. They were comedies entitled "Let's Make Up" and "Un-
accustomed As I Am." .
As Sophomores, the United States history class traveled to Cleveland on a tour of
museums and interesting sights. In an energetic mood, the class sponsored the "Soph-
more Tavern." It just broke even on the funds, but much fun was enjoyed.
At last they are JUNIORS. How far away it seemed when they were Seventh
Graders. Yet how quickly it came! Sorely in need of money with which to give
the Seniors the best PROM ever, the class picked as its play, a comedy in three acts
called "It's Tough To Be Rich". Loaded down with tons of proceeds, the PROM came
forth on its appointed night in full glory. The class officers who worked toward
both these ends were Adam Zawada, presidentg Marjorie Klinger, vice presidentg
Joan Crittenden, secretary and treasurer.

On a September morning in 1943, three large yellow school busses
rolled up to Geneva High School and deposited a group of totally be-
wildered Seventh Graders. As they stood before the door with their
mouths open, they were more or less gently propelled through the door
to join the slightly more confident village Seventh Graders. The fa-
vorite indoor sport of some upper classmen was to misdirect wandering
students. Thus some of the boys barely escaped being used as dress
models for the Home Economics Dept.
After becoming accustomed to Junior High life, the newcomers
began to enjoy many new friends. The class was made up of students
from six communities. They learned the school song and cheers without
much difficulty, and so became a part of one school.
As Eighth Graders their work continued much as before except
they felt far more important. They, in turn, played jokes on the inf-
nocent Seventh Graders. The strange odors on first floor came from
burnt offerings, prepared by the eighth grade girls. Meanwhile the
boys were designing and creating Period Furniture. fThey couldn't
tell what period it was, Colonial or Louis XVJ It looked as though it
had escaped from the Dark Ages.
Social activities included two skating parties at Boyer's. Lucky
for us that somebody thought of making Band-Aids. This was also the
year of the big snow. For days at a time the bus students Were shut in
by snowbound roads. Woolies, sleds, and flying trips down the hillside
became much more fun than trying to remember WHAT happened
WHEN in history. -
Returning last fall to become freshmen, they felt almost dignified
but soon got over that. Latin and algebra found their minds lost in a
This year the class of '49 finds itself becoming more a part of school
activities. Several members of the class distinguished themselves in
basketball and football. The newly organized freshman girls' basket-
ball team should be interesting. The class also furnished two cheer-
leaders for the Junior High teams and are well represented in the band
and junior high chorus. They have several officers and many members
in the Junior Girl Reserves and Boys' Hobby Club.
With eager eyes the "forty-niners" look forward to the years ahead.

September 6, 1945, was a clear warm autumn day, and not a better
day could have been picked for the opening of school. Hellos were
exchanged by everyone from the high and mighty seniors to the little
Most of these seventh graders were puzzled and bewildered as
the high school has a very different discipline from that of the grade
school. One thing they discovered right away was that some of the
teachers did not object if pupils chewed gum in their classes, and yet
others did object. The newcomers than would have to throw their
gum away unless they wanted citizenship marked against them.
Another thing they noticed was the passing in the halls. In the
grade school positively no talking was allowedvor the pupils would
receive a demerit. It Wasn't the hurry-scurry confusion that is always
heard in the high school.
The seventh grade was also busy in the first few weeks getting
settled. Then soon it was report card time and tests, tests, and more
On November 21 they had a Thanksgiving Party. They had loads
of fun but what about Mr. Moore? He had a dificult time trying to
teach them the Grand March, but he finally succeeded. He also taught
the pupils some square dances, and they surely were winded by the
time he got through with them. Ice. cream and cokes were on sale
and were certainly refreshing.
Most of the bewilderment has left the seventh graders by now.
Even though they're the babies of G.H.S., they're proud to be a part

The Geneva High School eleven, coached by D. J. Caton, met Perry
at the Geneva home field on September 14 for the first contest of the
season. Lack of weight and experience were the chief reasons for
Geneva's defeat by the heavier Perry squad. The-final score was 19-0.
The following Friday, Madison came to town, and a week's practice
showed dividends. We were beaten, 18-12, but never-the-less we had
improved. Our two touchdowns were made on a pass from Starkey to
Kelley, and a plunge by Stone. '
For our first league game, we changed from the "T" formation
into a single. wing with an unbalanced line and met Conneaut here on
September 28. With more experience and weight the Trojans won
26-2. The lone two points were scored when Stan. Ruck tackled a man
behind his own goal line.
On October 5, Geneva played host to Fairport in a non-league
contest. The heavy rain, which fell almost constantly through the en-
tire game, kept the Eagles from passing, and thus they were forced to
use running plays. Despite fine line play the score was 38-0 in favor
The following Friday on October 12, Mentor defeated Geneva 27-0.
Jimmy Johnson and Jimmy Paul, two Sophomore backfieldmen, showed
promise of becoming good ball players.
The first game away from home was played October 19, at Harbor.
Here Geneva met, for the first time, a team somewhere near its weight
but however, the Eagles playing wasnot up to par, and they were
beaten 32-O. 4
Next the Eagles traveled to Painesville on November 23 and al-
though they were beaten, they played the best game of the season.
The line was at its best, especially Ray Eller, Dick Cook, Stan Ruck,
and Alan Peterson. In the backfield Bill Starkey turned in his finest
performance thus far in the season. Bob Christian was playing half-
back when he broke his arm and his fighting spirit and playing ability
were greatly missed the remainder of the season. The final score was
After Painesville came Willoughby on November 9. This was the
homecoming game, and seven seniors were playing football for the
last time on the home field. Capt. Ray Eller presented the crown to
the homecoming queen, Marian Paul. The other six senior players
presented flowers to her court. Geneva was beaten 18-6, but they
played with a fighting spirit all the way. Fullback George Stone
punted some of his longest and best punts of the year. Johnson threw
many a ,well-aimed pass for plenty of yardage, and Bill Starkey inter-
cepted a pass and ran 60 yards for a touchdown.
The final game was played at Ashtabula on November 16, where
Geneva met one of the fastest, heaviest, and best teams of the league.
The fellows from fBula' really deserve 'the championship. They play
a fine game. Stan Ruck broke his leg in this game, and he was missed
very much. Geneva was defeated 48-0. p

Each year, as the sport's events get under Way, the schoo1's pep and spirit is en-
trusted to the cheerleaders. This year the yells were led by the varsity cheerleaders,
Ruth Holcomb, Jane Anderson, Peggy Morrison, and Beverly Fouse. These four girls
initiated many new yells and stimulated the fans' spirit to cheer the boys on to victory.
Even when defeat was inevitable, the cheerleaders were out in front of the crowd
with 'tLet's give them one more cheer and make it loud!"
Every team must have a second-string, and the team of cheerleaders is no excep-
tion. Leading the cheers for the Reserve teams were Sally Akerman, Jackie Pollock,
Margaret Schwartz and Doris Pasqualone. These girls were there cheering on the team
at every game and their spirit was tops". I
In preparation for their senior-high years, the J unior-High cheerleaders led
rousing cheers for the Junior High teams. They were Elaine Mazzatenta, Donna
Horner, Sally Woodward, Donna Troy, Carol Hocevar, and Betty Davis.

One of the most powerful organizations at Geneva High is the
Student Council. Itis the group which governs the school and directs
the student activities.
The biggest single undertaking for the past year was the installing
of an "Honor Study Hall". Room 29 was designated as honor study
hall, and three student monitors were placed in charge. This action
not only released one teacher every period, but it also encouraged the
students by placing them on their honor.
In mid-Winter, members of the council visited other schools to
compare the student governments with our own, to detect faults, and
recognize good points..
The students sincerely Wish to thank Mr. Moore for his revival
of the Student Council and the council itself for its splendid work this

many a new face added to the staff. '
The editor-in-chief for the year was Jean Moss, who saw that
all went smoothly. To assist her was Jane Anderson. Altogether
there were twenty-six hard Working members on the staff.
Each member of the staH, whether he was an old-timer or some-
one getting his first experience in meeting deadlines, did his part
ably and cheerfully. Cooperation was the keynote of the day.

Silence reigned in the gym which was full of girls. In the im-
pressive candle light ceremony, new members were being welcomed
into the Girl Reserves. Imagine the thrill of finally becoming a full-
fledged Girl Reserve after having heard your big sisters talking about
it for so long. Now you could take part in the numerous events and
be an active member of a nationwide organization.
Right away, you were put to work selling Christmas Cards. All
the members sold cards "like mad", with residents of Geneva being
swamped with them. No paper shortage here!
Not to forget tradition, the Girl Reserves planned and staged the
Christmas Assembly. After much frantic brain wracking on the part
of the cabinet, a play was picked and the cast chosen. The flu germs
picked this time to attack in force, knocking out most of the cast. Not
to be stopped, the cabinet planned a Cross of black-robed girls carry-
ing candles. Carols were sung by the Chorus to aid in the solemn and
pacifying affect for this was a real Christmas of peace.
Climax of the year was the Mother-Daughter Banquet which was
a grand affair. It ate money from the Treasury like a hippopotamus,
but the pleased smile on the mothers faces was enough reward for
May the Girl Reserves live up to their slogan:
"To find and give the best".

The Blue Triangle Club, which was organized this past year, was
open to any girl who wished to join. Mrs. Mellen, Miss Stevenson, and
Miss Holden, gave invaluable help to the girls in getting the club to-
gether and starting it off on the right foot.
The club's first activity of the year was an installation service.
The Senior Girl Reserves Cabinet helped with this program, giving the
junior organization many helpful pointers learned from their past ex-
perience with installation services. A Recognition Service was the next
program on the year's agenda. It was combined with a delicious pot-
luck supper. Also included with the supper was an amateur show and
a courtroom act, both of which afforded many good laughs. The
honorable cabinet served as judge and jury in the courtroom act. The
group roared with laughter when Mrs. Moore was sentenced to pro-
pose to Miss Holden. It was one of the comic highlights of the whole
year. . --
Other events scheduled for the year Were the giving of a dance,
a party honoring the mothers, and the collection of sales tax stamps.
All in all, the Blue Triangle Club's first year was a noteworthy one,
affording fun and work for.-its members. 1 ,

"Boy, are these hot-dogs ever good!" "Got any mustard?" These
were the yells you usually heard at all of the home football games,
where members of G.A.C. sold hot-dogs and pop. Rain or shine-
the G.A.C. was on the job.
Those little red and gray hats with the Geneva emblem Were
sold by members of G.A.C. Of course they were too small to keep
a person's ears Warm, but they really looked cute because they glowed
in the dark.
Other activities scheduled for the year include a semi-formal dance
with a floor show taken from its own members, three hikes during
the Warm weather, and of course the awarding of letters to the best
senior girl athletes.
Golly, We almost forgot about the initiation of the new members.
That's something nobody will ever forget because it was one of the
highlights of the year. The girls had to plaster their faces with make-
up, almost an inch thick, and wear dresses turned inside out with a
pair of slacks underneath. They had their hair up in curlers with a
stocking cap on top, and they also had to wear boots. It took them
several days to get all of the make-up off, but none of them complained
because they knew that all they were going through fwhich was mostly
funj was worthwhile. How about it new members? Aren't you glad

No group at Geneva High School derived more satisfaction from
its activities than the members of the Junior Red Cross. They Worked
Week after week for the War effort all during this past year.
The Home Economics Department made 79 utility bags for the
army, While the Industrial Arts Department made such things as canes,
ash trays, and ash stands. In the Commercial Department 150 bridge
tallies were made. Ten Christmas boxes for the old people in the
County Home, in addition to ffity cartoon books and ten crossward
puzzles for Wounded veterans were packed by the council. They also
packed 14 boxes for the children in foreign countries.
Two first-aid rooms-one for the boys and one for the girls-
have been equipped by the Junior Red Cross Council.
The high spot in the year was the Red Cross War Fund Drive,
when the homeroom representatives collected 9540.22 for this organiza-
tion. Those representatives really went to work and made every home-
room subscribe 10012,
To sum up the year's activities the Junior Red Cross has had a
very full and profitable schedule, thanks to its very able sponsors and

Sponsored by Mr. Ekern and Mr. Caton a Junior High Hobby Club
was organized last fall. Jim Merrell was elected president, Dick Eller,
vice presidentg and Bob Scoville, secretary.
The club has a total membership of 96, and the entire group meets
every two Weeks. Smaller, special groups meet every Week. The
aim of the club is to promote hobbies among the boys. Any boy in
the Junior High may join, and the dues are only ten cents per sem-
ester. "The dues are to pay for the Aquila picture," says Mr. Ekern.
The special groups consist of model airplane building, model rail-
roading, model boat building, stamp and coin collecting, magic stunts,
and wood carving. Most of the fellows seem to enjoy airplanes be-
cause that group has the largest enrollment.
. An assembly sponsored by the group was held early in the spring.

Thespian 'llroop 368 started the year with flying colors. The
first meeting was held to determine the Thespian Play, and "Hobgoblin
House" was selected. With a fine cast of performers and stage Workers,
the play was a success. Ghostly happenings entwined with humor
helped to make it so.
Following the play Jim Noyes, Arlene Lister, Jim Paul, and Norma
Harper were initiated as new members, making the membership 17.
The secret initiation was held at Dick Cook's house.
In the spring "The Red Lamp," a one-act play, was presented in
assembly, Harbor and Spencer. The cast included Bob, Strong, Bill
Starkey, Wanda Starkey, Jean Moss, Arlene Lister, and Jim Noyes.
The Thespian motto is "Act well your part, for there all honor
lies." It can truthfully be said that Thespians have lived up to their
motto this year.
The Thespian Troop will have its annual banquet and formal ini-
tiation at the end of the year. This is to be the second big undertaking
of the year.

The 1945 Junior Play
Two of the biggest moments- of a school career are the presenta-
tions of the Junior Play and the Junior-Senior Prom.
On March 23, 1945 at 8:15 p. m. the G.H.S. curtains opened upon
the first act of "Her First Flame". The story centered around Gen.
Terry fLoretta Davisl and her club called "The Irresistablesn, which
included Norma Harper, Don Geho, Arlene Lister, John Webster, Kath-
ryn Steiner, Wanda Starkey, and Bill Elwood.
Mr. and Mrs. Terry fWarren Deloria and Beverly Staffordj have
the usual worries and problems of the parents of two teen-age daugh-
ters. Their older daughter, Julia Uean Mossy is infatuated with the
local "strong-man", Don Stewart fBill Starkeyb, but complications
arise when Gen. discovers Don's charms. To further add to the trou-
bles, Gen's boy-friend, "Chick" CBob Strongj is arrested for stealing.
The true criminals turn out to be Mrs. A. Barleyvale Harris fSue Troyb
and her attractive daughter, Rosalind CBetty Patrickb. The Terry's
maid, Sara, CCaro1yn Inschol added to the merriment by her cooking
The class was proud and happy at its first successful attempt at
acting. Much credit goes to the director, Mrs. Martha Buchanan, and
the stage crew, headed by Dick Cook and Ray Eller.
1945 -Junior-Senior Prom 1945
The Junior-Senior Prom! It is a big event in the life of every
Junior as well as Senior.
After weeks of hard work, planning, and bui-lding, the gym was
beautifully transformed into a southern colonial estate. There were
white pillars on a porch in front of the manor-house, with beautiful
gardens, complete withtover-all bridge and a small stream. Over-head
4,000 stars swayed with the breezes. 4
On the porch, Joe Montanaro's band played it "Sweet or Hot",
while on the platform-floor couples danced and laughed together. The
southern atmosphere was even complete to "darki.es" to serve you.
It was a thrilling and exciting night for every Senior and Junior as
they said farewell to each other.

r The 'Band
The band under the direction of C. A. Frak has contributed much
to the enjoyment and service of the school. With a membership of 42,
it has kept up its spirit of improvement each year.
A concert was given early in May. Numbers included a baritone
solo by Jim Hamilton, and a trumpet trio consisting of Alan Warreii,
Bill Elwood, and Mary Burkholder. Kenneth Peck, of the grade school,
was used as guest conductorL The program included classics, novelties,
and modern selections.
The festival at Kent was attended during the latter part of the
year. It was a sectional contest for all the bands in northeastern Ohio.
This was the first time in four years the Geneva Band had attended.
The band's novelty formations and stunts were a subject of inter-
est. Under the leadership of the drum majorette, Betty Patrick, the
marching was outstanding. This was Betty's last year, and she has
done a fine job.

A fifty-voice chorus, 'underithe direction of Mr. C. A. Frak, has
produced gratifying results this year. Since its first public appearance
at a P. T. A. meeting last fall, it has widened its activities extensively.
The chorus has participated in several school assemblies. The old
-familiar carols were sung at the Christmas assembly. A new touch
was added to the functions of the chorus when station W. I. C. A. of
Ashtabula asked to have the chorus make a transcription to be broad-
cast at a latter date over their network. After appearing at the Civic
Club, the chorus looked forward to the highlight of its school year,
the spring concert. Great efort was put into preparing the chorus
for the baccalaureate service.
One of the aims of the chorus this year was to purchase robes.
In striving to fulfill this aim the chorus sponsored the operetta, "The
Messiah", given by the Ashtabula Civic Music Association last Decem-
ber in the school auditorium.
Under Mr. Frak's able direction and with the assistance of Cath-
erine Trapp, accompanist, the chorus has enjoyed many accomplish-
ments. The fact that boys were included in the chorus for the first
time this year made it possible to do four-part Work. Soloists, Kay
Hervey and Jim Hamilton, have also added variety to the choral pro-
grams. Sacred, semi-classical, and 'popular numbers were sung during

WE THANK YOU!
The yearbook of Geneva High is the largest single project of the
year. This year the Aquila has cost over S1,000, about a 1570 in-
crease over last year. To the advertisers goes the sincere thanks of
the Senior class. Without the financial assistance of the business-men
of Geneva, Ashtabula, and Painesville, the 1946 Aquila would not have
been possible. They have purch-ased advertisements that total over
halfthe cost of the book. The class of 1946 is grateful for their help.
