This year we are introducing something
new in the Aquila-pictures of the grade school
and the kindergarten. Our purpose in doing
this is to furnish the student with a complete
story of his school life from kindergarten to the
time he graduates.
The Aquila Staff, shown in individual pic-
tures throughout the book, was aided by three
members of the faculty. Mrs. Virginia Spafford
was in charge of the editorial work, Mrs. Georgia
Mehl directed the securing of subscriptions, and
Mr. D. J. Caton took care of the all-important
procuring of advertisements.
In order to show our appreciation for
all that he has done for us in his two years
at Geneva High, we dedicate This 1947
Aquila to our superintendent, counselor,
and friend, Mr. Wallace Moore.

The financial projects for this year were the P. T. A. Cook Book
and a Rummage Sale. The recipes for the cook book were given by
parents and friends of the school pupils. The book Went on sale in
May and proved to be a great success.
The first two meetings in the fall were devoted to the football team,
the school band, and the Boosters Club. At the latter meeting, Mr. V. D.
Winkler and Mr. Lincoln Cahn explained the necessity of passing the
On December 20 the grade school presented an impressive musical
program. After this the P. T. A. gave the grade school students their
annual Christmas treat.
"Hobby Night" and "Open House" were held on January 20. Hob-
bies of pupils and their parents were displayed in the high school audi-
torium. During the evening Miss Margaret Olds and Mr. Raymond
Maxwell demonstrated the procedure used in training a new member
for the Chorus and the Band.
In March the P. T. A. was fortunate in securing the services of Mr.
F. R. Slutz, one of the outstanding authorities on child psychology. He
remained in Geneva three days lecturing to both parents and students.
At the last meeting in May the officers for 1947-48 were installed.

The purpose of this club is to support, promote, and develop any
programs from which benefits will be derived for the Geneva Schools.
It is an organization of men who want to get behind the school to
give time, effort, and money.
In September two lucky football squads were taken by the Boosters'
Club to see the Cleveland Browns vs. San Fancisco Forty-niners.
The club sold season football tickets and has put forth great effort
for the proposed stadium. In January it held the annual football
banquet. The organization gave two hundred dollars toward the pur-
chase of uniforms for the football team.
The band was also helped by the Boosters' Club this year. The
new bell lyre and music folders were bought by the club. The band was
able to attend other football games and the Kent Contest because 'the
Boosters' Club paid for the transportation.

In the fall of 1943 a class of struggling Freshmen walked out of the Hall of Ob-
scurity into the Path of Expectation. That year they stumbled over the problems of
choosing their own subjects and getting acquainted with real high school life. Their
peak was beating the Sophomores selling magazines, which not only added to their
prestige, but also to the coffers of the treasury.
As Sophomores they walked onto the Lane of Experience. There they were
initiated into various high school organizations, and the boys began playing their first
Varsity football. Some of the talent came creeping out when they sponsored dances
and parties. Yes, they were learning and gaining experience.
Leaving "The Lane" they crossed to the Road of Ecstasy. Being a Junior meant
plans, plays, and the Prom. They worked hard on committees, for there was much
to do in such a busy year. The play went on in Marchg and after that, prom plans
were started. The afternoon of the Prom came, and a group of weary, dirty, yet jubi-
lant Juniors closed the door of a gaily decorated gym, the scene of their very hard
labors. That night they returned handsomely dressed and with renewed spirits, to
enjoy the results of their efforts. They truly were in ecstasy.
Then came the Street of Exultation, the goal of twelve years of work and fun.
It was a busy year, filled with all the usual Senior activities that one never forgets.
On May 26th as the Seniors, capped and gowned, entered the auditorium for the
last time, they looked back on the many unforgetable experiences of their journey.
Now they wereggoing out into a larger sphere-the world. Thankful for all they had
learned on the Path of Expectation, Lane of Experience, Road of Ecstasy, Street of
Exultation and for their many achievements, they stepped eagerly onto the Highway
of Life- By Jane Anderson

The Junior Class
Two important things happened in 1942.
The Battle of Midway turned the tide of
World War II, and those irreproachable jun-
iors entered the immortal portals of G. H. S.
for the first time as seventh graders. This
year afforded us our first chance to dabble in
politics, which resulted in the election of Bob
Ronsky, presidentg Frank Boomhower, vice
presidentg and Dick Whelpley, secretary-
treasurerg as the executives of our struggling
Came 1943 and another year at G. H. S.
We had a few of our class parties, those for
which we were so famous. The political "big
wigs" this year were Dick Whelpley, presi-
dentg Margaret Swartz, vice presidentg and
Bob Ronsky, secretary-treasurer. We really
got down to work in the field of dramatics
with the presentation of "Brass Tacks," in a
school assembly. The Junior High party gave
us our first taste of high school social life.
Right here is where the complications set in,
the startling fact stared us in the face--our
first date. This was also the golden era of
our Eagles. It was this year that the Eagles won the divisional championship by
whipping "Bula" in a thriller.
1 lur first real taste of responsibility arrived when we became freshmen. We were
given the right to choose our curriculum. Some chose to follow the path to college:

The Junior Class
others took the commercial course and hoped someday to be business men and women
of the world. Still others aimed for an industrial or home-maker's career and so en-
listed in the Industrial Arts Department. Those who were undecided in their wants
took the general course. This was '44 and the politics didn't change. The two "R's"
ran again and won-Ronsky and Roosevelt. What a combination! What a country!
What a class! Bob's platform was supported by Jim Johnson, vice president, and
Gene Zito, secretary-treasurer. Our class treasury was boosted to 8116. Our sales-
mansnip ability was demonstrated by the selling of magazine subscriptions. The
year's activities were fully rounded out by participation in school life. We were
present at the after-game dances and took part in intramural sports, in which our
boys basketball team was runner-up. Jim Johnson and Jim Otto represented the
class on the varsity basketball team.
Unity was the by-word in our Sophomore year at G. H. S. as the class was united
into one working unit. We worked together in the sponsoring of after-game dances.
Magazine subscriptions again formed a good portion of our treasury which was raised
to 3137.14 in '45, Ronsky's party machine crashed. Mary McColl was elected presi-
dent, and Jean Hanson, secretary-treasurer. Our boys basketball team again was
runner-up in the intramural race.
With this year at G. H. S. yet to be finished, we come to the conclusion that school
isn't "half bad" at all. Ronsky, like the Republicans, is back in office once again.
He is supported by Jim Noyes, vice president, and Nancy Beight, secretary-treasurer,
who last year entered our class as a new member. Who can forget the unforgetable
initiation of Hi-Y and G-Teens. This year was our "all out year" in athletics. On
March 21, we gave our presentation of "Don't Take My Penny". The play this year,
as in the history of all Junior Classes, was a great success due to the efforts of such vet-
eran actors as Carol Taylor, Mary McColl, Jim Paul, Jim Noyes, Nancy Beight, and
Sally Ackerman. New in the field of dramatics but giving a good performance were
Jean Hanson, Lenore Hasenpflug, Bill White, Irv Newman, Gene Zito, Margaret
Schwartz, Jackie Pollock, Alan Warren, Ken McGuire, George Maurer, and Margaret
Swartz. As we go to press the Prom has not been fully planned, but we know from
experience the juniors will once again come through. Thus we close our immortal tale
on the most fascinating subject there is-ourselves.

Many years ago Cat least it
seems like it to themj members of
the class of '49 entered G. H. S.
On this certain September morn-
ing they Walked very timidly up
to the doors of G. H. S. and, after
making sure that no one was look-
ing, opened the doors and stepped
Once inside all they could see
was a long hall with rows and
rows of lockers, which were used
for a good purpose, holding all
those many and heavy books.
Later, much to their surprise, they
found that there were more lock-
ers, three times as many to be ex-
act. They realized it after they
started to make the climb from
the first to the third floor, and
after getting there found that
upperclassmen and had to turn

The Sophomore Class
This went on for a couple of weeks until they finally found on what
floor each room was located, but they still had to dig out their schedules
after each period to find out where they were to go next, for it was just
too much for them to learn so much at once. Eventually they were
ready to settle down to actual school life.
After getting accustomed to the school, they found many new
friends. They learned the school song and sang it very truly, proud to
belong to G. H. S. The rest of the year was spent dreaming of the
future when they would have more to do with the life of the school.
Another September rolled around and the class of '49 under the
name of eighth graders came back to G. H. S. with one thing in mind,
and that was to trick the new seventh graders. At first they thought
they were growing up all at once but soon found that they still had a
long way to go before becoming seniors. This was the year of the big
snow. During the part of a week when school was discontinued, all the
students were ice-skating, sliding, and taking part in all the other
Returning again the next fall as Freshmen, the class of '49 found
itself becoming a far more important part of the school. They also
found that their subjects, such as Latin and algebra were nothing like
their former studies.
Most of the class did its duty to G. H. S. by either becoming mem-
bers of the school sports' teams or by becoming cheerleaders. They also
began to join the various clubs and other organizations of the school.
As Sophomores, the class came back with a "bang". They were
given permission to sell refreshments at the football field, and by so
doing increase their treasury to Sl5141.62. Almost the whole class was
either on the football squad or was selling refreshments at the games.
Members of the class became still more interested in the school activities
and became members of the basketball squad, and Talon Staff.

The Freshman Class
On a bright September morn in 1944
As seventh graders mild and 'meek
We entered the strange wide door
We loved our adventure-though afraid
To all-that seemed so very deep.
Of the new life which for us had been made.
We gazed at all the older girls
And tried in vain to copy their curls
And also the boys so strong and sound
Who like frisky pups 'gainst the rules would
Until at last their spirits were calmed.
And they found the place where they be-
Finally we entered the eighth with fears
And prayed for luck thru the coming years.
But lol you'd never think that at last,
From the eighth to the ninth we finally
As the ninth grade class we have done well.
We've more than proved our ability to sell.
We also had a dance-for fun
And on church attendance we're number
And we have no doubt that in the coming
You'll find our class has some Wall Street
You'll find it all goes back to that morn in
When warily we did venture thru that
strange wide door.
And now that we are here we are willing to
We love you and we're with you one and
all-G. H. S.

Eighth graders! It was unbelievable but true. As we filed into
the school building on the opening day, we certainly felt much different
than we did a year ago. Now others were taking our place as the
"babies" of the school. Yes, others at whose mistakes we could now
afford to laugh. h
Four new members were added to our class this year-Jean Bell,
Pat Brosky, Marjorie Zikovsky, and Eddie Crosby.
At the end of the first six weeks many of us succeeded in getting
on the attendance and citizenship honor rolls. However, some of us
seemed to have "gremlins" such as shop, arithmitic, and English that
kept us off the scholarship honor roll.
In our class we have an accordion player, Roxanne Sparrg a pianist,
Joyce Hopes, a tap dancer, Joan Horvathg a singer, Janet Stinemang
and an artist, Jim Myers, besides many other outstanding pupils who
have taken part in assembly programs.
During the second semester several special tests were given. First
there was the Iowa State Reading and Mathematics test: then, the Ohio
State I. Q. test, and last the Aptitude test. After all these tests, mem-
bers of the class hope that they are qualified to take their place as ninth
graders next year. .

The majority of our class first started to school seven years ago on
a warm September morning in 1940. We were all eager to learn our
reading, writing, and arithmetic. Since then we have also learned many
manyrother things. Half of our school days are done-"gone to the
As we have progressed, we have gathered some new pals, and
others have left to go to different schools.
Now seven years later we have reached the junior high, and we are
scared that the upperclassmen will find something wrong with what
we do-which, of course, they do. However, some of us would have
been even more bewildered during the first days in the high school build-
ing if it hadn't been for the older pupils who showed us where various
classrooms were located.
It has been hard for us to get used to bringing in assignments every
day for class. Sometimes we forget to do them and leave them in our
lockers or at home, but most of us are getting that fault conquered.
A junior high party was planned for April or May, which was a
highlight of the year. We have tried to do our share for the Junior
Red Cross, "March of Dines", and various homeroom activities.
I'm sure I speak for every seventh grader when I say that we are
proud to have a chance at junior high and to go on to high school, and
we hope that we don't take unfair advantage of our lucky chance.

From the basement of the Grade School Building, floats the high-
pitched sound of childish talk and laughter. What class is this? Why
the kindergarten, of course. It is a bright, cheery room with tiny tables
and chairs, and original crayon drawings covering the walls.
This is the first time in many years that there has been a kinder-
garten. Under the direction of Mrs, Della Sherwood, youngsters of pre-
school age learn a little about school life and making friends with other
children. There are two classes--one in the morning, and another in the
afternoon, so each child comes for only half a day. The kindergarten
also teaches a little of the discipline of school and community life, pre-
paring these very young children early to become better citizens.

The top project of the Student Council this year was the sponsoring
of the noon activity period. Each noon one class was permitted to use
Room 19 for dancing while another class would use the gym, thus giving
students relaxing recreation.
During the second semester, the council undertook the responsi-
bility of having each class perform "Opening Exercises." It also had
charge of sponsoring a continuous flow of assemblies.
In February the Geneva High School Council went to the Lake
County Student Council Conference. The discussions of our Council
were on school finance.

Geneva High's first dance of the year was sponsored by one of its
newest organizations, the National Honor Society. The dance was
held in the gym on September 8.
During football and basketball season the club did its bit to support
the team by sponsoring buses to out-of-town games. At all home games
the N.H.S. sold programs listing the players names and numbers.
At the end of first semester and again in May the club held its in-
itiation ceremony on the stage. At this time all persons in the sopho-
more, junior, and senior classes meeting the requirements were taken
into the club.

This year the Talon assumed the new form of a printed paper pub-
lished every two weeks by Spring's Printing Shop. In past years it had
been mimeographed at the school.
This tenth year of publication began with a practically new staff,
and a new sponsor, Mrs. Georgia Mehl. Jane Anderson, the editor-in-
chief, was assisted by a staff numbering thirty-eight.
The staff has endeavored to report. accurately the news and fea-
ture stores of the many events which take place in the high school. The
paper has also portrayed personalities and spirit of Geneva High stu-
dents. In March the group visited the Cleveland Plain Dealer plant.

No group at Geneva High School derives more satisfaction from its
activities than do the members of the Junior Red Cross. This prganiza-
tion offers its members an opportunity to serve others, both at home and
abroad, through adoptable channels that are correlated with school ac-
tivities. Thus, it forms a link between the schools and the broadening
circle of local, national, and international society.
The Home Economics Department made six wool dresses and eleven
wool skirts for foreign relief, while the Industrial Arts Department made
twelve cribbage boards and six metal ash trays. The Junior Red Cross
Council contributed twenty pairs of house slippers and forty wash cloths.
They also packed fourteen educational boxes for ,children in foreign
countries, ten Christmas boxes for old people in homes, and made one
hundred favors for the Veterans' Home at Chillicothe, Ohio.
A First Aid Room which was equipped last year by the Junior Red
Cross is under the supervision of the Council Members.
The Junior Red Cross has had a full and profitable schedule, thanks
to its ambitious representatives and the sponsors, Miss Maude Paxton
and Miss Ruth Holden.

This year the old, familiar Girl Reserves club was reorganized un-
der the name G-Teens. National changes in organization necessitated
this new name, but the basic ideals still remain.
As in the past, this year's officers and club members were very busy.
An original one-act play, "Cynthia's Christmas", and the ever beautiful
candle-lit cross were highlights of the annual Christmas assembly.
Beautiful carols were sung by the Senior and Junior Choruses.
Theryear's activities were climaxed by the Mother-Daughter Ban-
quet. At this time announcement was made of the title of the best G-
Teen of the year and the officers for next year.
Whatever the name, members of the G-Teens always promote the
high standards and ideals of service that are the keynote of their club.

day, December 6, and the games continued until the end of the school
About a week after school started, the first meeting was held and
the main subject discussed was, of course, initiation. That was when
the new members began to worry!
Initiation provided all with an evening of fun. It was held along
the beach at Township Park, Geneva-on-the-Lake. The new members
put on several skits and furnished food for the whole group of girls.
The G.A.C. letter point system, discontinued for two years, was
brought back into effect this year. Points were given for the various
activities in which the girls participated. At the end of the year those
having a sufficient number of points were presented letters.
"Play Day" which was held with Madison, at Geneva, was a "red

Friday the 13th may be a traditionally unlucky day-but such did
not hold true for the presentation of "Daddy Long Legs," the annual
Thespian play on Friday, December 13. A splendid cast under the di-
rection of Mrs. Margaret Peck and A. A. MacPhail gave a performance
which will be classed as one of the dramatic successes of Geneva High
In March, eight new Thespians were taken into the club. Like all
Thespian initiations, this was one that the initiates will not forget. The
new members were Emily Bilger, Monna Mansfield, Carol Taylor, Nancy
Beight, Illa Shafer, Tom Bonsor, Faye Cutshall, and Mary McColl.
A one-act play entitled "The Teeth of the Gift Horse" was pre-
sented as a Thespian project under the direction of Mrs. Virginia Spaf-
ford and Mr. MacPhail. This play was presented as an assembly pro-
gram, as an exchange with Painesville and Rock Creek High Schools,
and for various organizations in Geneva. This group of traveling play-
ers had a variety of experiences which they will long remember as some
of the highlights of their school life.
In May the formal initiation of Thespians was held. Those who had
earned sufficient credits in the Junior and Senior plays were initiated at

Club. They are receiving this training from two capable sponsors, Al-

This club consists only of junior high boys. The membership of
the club this year is so large that it has been divided into three groups.
Each group has worked on different projects.
On January 20 the P.T.A. held a "Hobby Night." The public was
invited to see not only things that the boys had made in school but also
the personal hobby collections they have outside of school.

Geneva High School opened its football season on September 13th
by bowing to Perry in a non-league contest 39-6. Geneva had three first
team men unable to play because of injuries. George Stone made the
Eagles only touchdown by plunging through the line, but Perry's pass-
ing attack proved to be too tough for Geneva.
The following week at Madison, Geneva played ball for the last
three quarters. After giving Madison a two touchdown lead in the first
quarter, they fought them evently for the rest of the game. The final
score was 18-6, although the Eagles outplayed Madison for the better
part of the game.
Ashtabula came to town on September 27th, and Geneva played
an inspired game holding Bula to a 39-7 score. The Panthers were
plenty big and injuries were suffered by both sides. Bill White injured
his knee and was out for the season. The Eagles score came when a
pass from Whelpley bounded out of an opponent's arms, and Zawada
grabbed it in the end zone. Bob Ronsky made several nice tackles and
Dick Whelpley returned several kick-offs for nice gains.
Conneaut displayed too much speed and power for the Eagles on
October 4th, whipping Geneva 33-6. The Trojans had control of the
ball most of the game. Dave Lomas looked good at end where he caught
several passes. Merrell and Shafer made some outstanding tackles
backing up the line. Troy made Geneva's lone touchdown when he
crossed the goal line and made a beautiful catch of Whelpley's pass.
On October 11th, Geneva lost a heartbreaker to Jefferson 25-20.
Playing in the mud and rain, the Eagles almost pulled this one out of
Football -' 1946
the fire. Johnson ran around end for the first score and passed to Hor-
ton for the extra point. The second score came on a pass from Whelpley
to Paul. Shafer cracked the line for the extra point. Behind in the last
minute of play, the Eagles kept fighting and a pass from Whelpley to
Reidl ended the game. Geneva's passing attack was really working
with Whelpley and Johnson taking turns throwing them to the ends and
On October 18th the Eagles journeyed to Willoughby and were
trounced 40-0. Jim Merrell was injured and out for the season. Kling-
ler, who had been out so far all season with a back injury, did a fine
job on tackle. Peterson did well holding down his side of the line, but
Willoughby's long runs were too much for Geneva.
The next Friday at Mentor, Geneva went down to defeat 40-6.
Johnson's pass to Horton accounted for the Eagles' score. Late in the
third quarter, Johnson threw a beautiful pass to Zawada, who was in
the open but was caught from behind. The play covered about 60 yards
altogether. Horton was injured and out for the rest of the season.
November lst, the Eagles minus four first team players, played
great ball against Harbor. Jim Noyes, Bill Geho, and Dave Lomas
handled the end position like veterans. Geneva really fought hard the
Whole game, and at one point the entire line broke through to throw a
Harbor man behind the goal line for a safety. The final score was 26-2.
A In the final game of the season Painesville defeated Geneva 39-0.
The Raiders had a little too much of everything for Geneva, but the
Eagles never quit fighting and "racked up" quite a few first downs by
sheer determination. Jim Johnson broke his wrist on the last play of
the last game of the season, as Geneva's hard luck stuck with them to the

eight points. The Reserves lost a heartbreaker 31-29 after leading for
most of the game. Hillier led with eleven points.
Traveling to Ashtabula on December 10, Geneva took a bad' beat-
ing 48-20 as the Panthers were too fast on both offense and defense,
but even when defeat seemed certain, the Eagles kepat fighting. Zawada
was high point man with eight points. The Reserves also lost 26-13 as
"Bula's" defense kept them pretty well tied up. Hillier was high with

nights, by a 43-34 score. Jim Otto was on the beam as he dropped in
eleven points. The preliminary contest was an Army-Navy game be-

zal, Bob Cook, and Bob Smith split high-point honors with four apiece.

decision although they outplayed the Mariners' the last half. Otto
made nine and Zawada seven to spearhead the Eagles' attack. The
Reserves won a rough and tumble contest with Harbor 16-11. Christian
and Leslie were high with five points apiece.

tor 32-29. It was a close and exciting game all the way. Zawada and
Otto once again led the attack with 12 and 10 points respectively. The
Reserves dropped a thriller 19-17. This game was almost as exciting
as the Varsity game. Hillier and Butler were high with four points
Geneva kept in the winning mood by trouncing Perry 45-23. Zaw-
ada just couldn't miss, and he poured in 21 points. This is the most any
Geneva player made in a single game all season. The Reserves had a
field day as they whipped Perry 46-13. Christian led with twelve, but
he was followed closely by Hillier and Maltby with ten each.
On January 17 at Conneaut the Eagles were held to their lowest
score of the season as they lost 27-16. Nobody seemed to be able to
make any points, although Zawada got hot for a short time and dropped
in seven points. The Reserves were beaten 36-17 by a Conneaut team
that was just too tall for chem. Leslie was high-point man with six

points for high. The Reserves lost 34-17. Hillier, Butler, and Castelli
chalked up four points each.

to town on January 31, and the Eagles gave them a real battle for the
first half. They were behind only five points at the half, but lost the
game 52-29. Jim Otto made eleven out of seventeen shots and a total
of fifteen points for high honors. The Reserves did not play.

evenly for three Quarters, the Eagles once again gave way to a fourth
quarter attack. Zawada was high-point man with ten points. The

Reserves lost 35-22. Christian was high again with six points. '
Playing its second game in two days, the Eagles won another lea-
gue game by upsetting Harbor 33-26. The Eagles showed much im-

with twelve, followed by Otto who made eleven points. Harbor man-
aged to win over the Reserves 24-21, although they were given quite a
battle. Leslie led with seven points.
The winning streak was continued when the Eagles took a tough
game from Madison 33-25. The Blue Streaks were behind only two
points with two minutes to play when a push shot by Horton and a
beautiful toss by Zawada-as he shot from underneath the basket
while he was twisting in mid-air-made it three in a row for Geneva.
Otto was high-point man with fifteen. The Reserves also had a tough
game but came out on top 35-27. Christian was high with eleven while
Castelli made ten.
The final game of the season was undoubtedly the most thrilling
and exciting one. The lead changed several times, and during the last
two minutes every person in the gym was on his feet shouting and
cheering. A long shot by Conneaut deadlocked the score at 31-31, and
the Trojans went on to win in an overtime period 38-33. Otto was high
with fifteen. Zawada was next with twelve and everyone played a
good game in an attempt to make the last game a victory. The Re-
serves suffered another defeat 39-24. Bill White, playing his best game
of the season, was high with seven points.
Two Geneva High School basketball players have received the
honor of being picked on the All-Lake Shore-League Teams. Adam
Zawada was placed on the first team, and Jim Otto made the second

WE THANK YOU
The Yearbook of Geneva High is the largest single project of the
year. This year the .Aquila has cost over 31200, which is about a 20?
increase over last year. To the advertisers goes the sincere 'thanks of
the Senior Class. VVithout the financial assistance of the business men
of Geneva, Ashtabula, and Painesville, the 1947 Aquila would' not have
been possible. They have purchased advertisements that total over half
the cost of the book. The class of 1947 is grateful for their help.

that the judge was a hearty genial old boy who would respond favorably
to the right kind of approach-the hail-fellow-well-met kind. So the
