I, The Legend of the Limberlost, the spirit of this book, have come to
you again on my yearly visit. To you I bring thoughts of friendship, the
companionship of books, and the spirit of our school. Treasure these
memories in your heart so that in future years you may remember them
He was one who never turned his back but marched breast forward,
always had a word of greeting for all, and a willing hand for everything.
He had a flame of warmth and kindness, as bright as the summer's
sun, and true as tempered steel.
Our memorial to you, as sponsor of the class of 1940, shall be an ever-
green affection until we, too, descend into the tomb and become one with
you in the Infinite.

The activities of any organization are more or less
controlled by the directors. With this in mind the
faculty, trustee, and advisory board have attempted
to direct and guide the activities of Geneva High
School. Those projects which are helpful in prepa-
ration for life problems are of prime importance dur-
ing high school life. As many of these projects as
possible have been included in the activities of the
school year 1939-40.

Our beloved class sponsor, Mr. Cook, died of a heart attack on April 26, 1939.

0116 day, l. Edith H0ffn1aI1, Clellided 'CO 30 on H Wild goose chase and to hunt up my dear old class-
mates. AS I arrived in New Y0l'l4 l registered at UUE of the largest hotels and who greeted me but CHESTER
FIELDS. He Said he had a W0I1Clei'fHl l0l0 as bell 'DOY and that his wife, MIRIAM GREENE, and his five little
children were all very fine. What a shock this was to me, A5 1 went for my afterngon walk the next day
I happened to see a theatre with large letters naming -AOPENING TONIGHT, STARRING AVEUNE ROBIN-
soN and Dorm: BOLLINGER IN ROMEO AND JULIETJ' 1 invent to See them, and they played their parts
very Well. After the show I saw Aveline and she Said that they were to be married soon. Upon leaving
the theatre l n0l2iCed 21 dried-UP Old man walking l10ward me with a smile on his face. At first I didn't rec-
0gUi29 him. but at the S9COHCl glalwe l discovered it was none other than FRANKLIN ARIVISTRONG. I couldn't
understand Why he was S0 er0SS-eyed. After questioning him I found out that it all started from his
boyhood days- It 5691115 that When he WHS in Sflhool he made so many moon eyes at a certain girl
that his QYGS Stayed that Way. l asked him if he Was married, and he said he had a very lovely wife whom
I discovered W8S.MATIE FENNIG. He a1S0 told me that LOUISE SINIITH and WARREN GEORGE HAVILAND were
going places as a tap dancing team.
As I traveled on to BOStOn I Saw I-1 large h0USS With the name REV. ROBERT MORNINGSTAR. I decided to
go in and see him. As I opened the door I heard, "I pronounce you man and wife." I tiptoed in and
discovered he was marrying none other than MARIE STUCKY and MALCOLM BANTA. I wished them a lot of
happiness and continued on my journey.
As I stopped in Detroit I saw a sign "YE OLD TAVERNH and underneath it read "Managers formerly
of Geneva." Deciding these might be some of my classmates I decided to go in' 1 found BERWYN SHQUNGER
and NORMAN GRILE behind the bar. And can yOu guess who was putting on the fioor show? None other
than ROBERTA SCOTT, FLORENCE SI-IIVELY, and AGNES F RAVEI.. I decided not to disturb them for they seemed
to be having a wonderful time. I went to an opera that night and was shocked when I saw on the stage
MARY FRANCES REICHELDEFFER, MARILYN AUGSBURGER, WVELDON LEHMAN, and RICHARD FIELDS. The boys were
staging a duel over the girls.
As I stopped in Fort Wayne I noticed a sign saying DR. CLIFTON GEREER. I went in to see him, and he
said he was making a lot of money. Iwished him luck, and as I walked past the onice I saw MARTHA
WEAVER. I asked her how she had been, and she said she was very ill with indigestion after eating a
large dinner. I hoped that she would be well soon and continued on my journey.
Stopping in Decatur I discovered MARGARET HISER. She said she was married to her old sweetheart and
was living in a mansion near t'Eley Hills." I asked her where this was and she said it was near the rail-
road track. Coming to my old home town, Geneva,I discovered my old pal, VERDA BLOCKER. She and I
had the same idea. Now, we have gone to live in an old half-torn-down house near Ceylon. We're two old
maids raising cats and canaries. What will happen to the old maids for are wel ? Well, time will tell,
We, Norman Grile and Franklin AI'mSi2I'0ng, Will our ability to scrub doors to Donald Windmiller and

Senior CI ss Poem
The hall of Study is gloomy this day,
For Geneva's sending more Seniors away.
There're fourteen girls and eleven boys,
Who've gained their share of knowledge and poise.
Down the hall, still drying her tears,
Mary Frances Reicheldeffer appears,
To say the least she's sorry to leave
Altho she'd welcome a husband to peeve.
Also, in this class, there's a girl of girls,
One with a multitude of tiny curls.
To most every disease Marie's immune,
But Franklin simply leaves her in a swoon.
I hear a sound on this nice Spring breeze,
It's probably the musically inclined Louise.
Playing her favorite on her piano,
That fancy 'iDance of Sir Banana."
Down the halls of Geneva High,
Malcolm Banta strolls leisurely by.
Nothing excites him, he never hurries,
Speeding production is the least of his worries.
If e'er you're in doubt about your History,
We've a lad who can solve every mystery.
He is called "Red,'l but Warren's his name,
And the name of Webster is his claim.
Greene's-Smith's-and Armstrong's are common
But here comes a name over which there's a
Whether leap year or not, makes no dif' to the
They'll bow very gladly to Gerber's brown curls.
Yea! Rah! Team! Isn't this fun?
Here comes Norman on the run.
He'll make a basket sure, I know,
To keep our score from being low.
A girl with patience is what it takes,
To be a nurse and get some place.
Aveline has enough and to spare,
Which should put her name away up there.
If you want just a pretty girl,
Who's innocent of any quarrel,
Just give Edith a smile or two,
And she'll smile right back at you.
Through many a dry campaign,
Over in the Roman domain,
Toiled Weldon, our Caesar shark,
And left us completely in the dark.
Demure little miss of our twenty-five,
Is Martha Weaver, who's very much alive.
Besides being slender and sweet,
Her appearance is always very neat.
She's very tall, but not at all weighty,
A right good scout you'll find our Matie.
Not too serious, takes life with a grin.
Even when it gets her a sock on the chin,
Now what's the use to labor and toil?
Life's much too short for that, says Doyle,
l ll hie me forth and amuse myself,
Let others struggle for fame and wealth.
O don't sing to me of a hat-check lass,
I pen this verse to Agnes of our Senior class,
With smiles that charm and endear,
Who goes to town as a movie cashier.
O that rough riding drug store cowboy
His music may only annoy,
Still he sings and strums a guitar
But, ah! Dick is a gay Lochinvar.
She's a booster, not a knocker,
Describes Miss Verda Blocker.
Strong and sturdy, young and tomboy,
She brings to those around her much joy.
When Margaret takes a notion,
She can talk with varied motion.
She meets her troubles pleasantly,
But holds her own especially.
Marilyn is the girl who's smart,
And never fails to do her part.
To her classes she's on time,
And always listens for the rhyme.
He thinks he's a cowboy from out of the West,
From cowboy hat to flashing vest.
'Tis no one else but Bob Morningstar,
Who rides around in a rattle-trap car.
Berwyn, the best of the class' Romeos,
Likes especially this kind of Cameos.
The little Dresden dolls with plenty of curls,
Seem to him the best type of girls.
In grades Miriam gets a generous whack,
She also has a cunny knack
Of turning her giggles into tunes,
From many a swinging runes.
When notebooks and scrapbooks you see all
You may guess they are volumes that Chester's
He always has his lessons as all good students do,
Because the notebooks for Literature are far
from being few.
Roberta tries the new hair do's,
And rolls them up in double two's,
She also likes the Ford V-8 and
Would rather ride than roller skate.
Franklin has the grace to blush,
Till often he resembles plushg
He keeps his teeth gleaming pearly,
Also his hair, which is naturally curly.
I know a girl who is so precise,
She doesn't think slang is very niceg
She wrote a class poem, failed to pen the poet
That won't do, Florence, you should know it!

On September 4, 1937, we, a group of forty-nine boys and girls, entered the Geneva
High School as freshmen. Because of our timidness we were called "greenies." Soon we
became less timid but the name "stuck" with us for the rest of the year. Dorothy Wheeler
and Katherine Nelson decreased our number to forty-seven. We decided to have a party,
and Jane Miller cordially invited us to be her guests.
September 2, 1938, we entered the assembly more boldly than we had a short year
before. Thirty-eight pupils made up our sophomore class, and during the year Marjorie
Bixler left but Carl Zuercher joined us. Our first get-to-gether of this year was held in
the Berne Park. For the farewell party ofthe year every one was invited to spend a
joyous evening with Betty Kraner.
On July 14, 1939, the entire class was invited to spend the evening at the Bluffton CCC
Camp. Everyone enjoyed a festive evening. A hamburger fry was the main event.
September 1, 1939, our group of thirty boys .and girls entered the high school as so-
phisticated juniors. During the year we added Herman Bixler, but Marcella Pontzious
moved away. The play, "She's My Daisy," was presented by our class on November 28,
1939. Our final party for the year was held at the home of Bernice Mathys.
As we near the close of this term we are looking forward with anticipation to our
final year, which we hope to make our best.

We, the sophomores of this year, were relieved to find that we no longer were classed
as freshmen. On the first day of school, we found that we were to have two new
teachers. This frightened us at first, but now we are well acquainted. We had all
looked forward to having Mr. Cook as one of our teachers, but he had passed on into
the world which we all hope to attain some day.
This year we missed several classmates. Those that did not return were: Ruth
Wheeler, Ernest Steiner, Jeroham Yoder, Dorothy Glassburn and Noah Amstutz. Some
that left this year were Rowene Zuercher, Margaret Pace, Evealeen Boice and Dorothy
The class party, at the Berne Park, which we enjoyed very much, and the selection
of our class rings are two events which stand out above the more commonplace expe-
riences of the year.

On September 1, 1939, 42, shall we say, timid Freshmen entered the assembly. We
were all trying to look as dignified as our upper classmen, and succeeded to a certain extent.
We experienced a feeling of great joy on that day for we discovered three new
members were added to our class enrollment, namely, Romaine Stucky, Katherine
Sprunger, and Keith Hofstetter.
The boys felt better after the customary ducking and in a few days settled down
to their studies.
Perhaps the question that entered every Freshman's mind at sometime was, "Who
will be our sponsor?"
To our surprise on October 10, 1939, when we were assembled for Algebra class
fearing a test would be sprung on us, who should walk in the door but our principal, Mr.
Hunt, to deliver to us the good news that we could voice our opinion in the selection of a
sponsor. We then discovered that Mrs, Rhoades was to occupy this position. Our next
step was to vote on our motto and flower. After sometime, we decided our flower was
to be the "yellow rose." We chose as our motto a very suitable one: "We build the lad-
der by which we ascend."
Our history was not destined to end here, for in the beginning days of November,
a new member, Jack Hutchins by name, was added to our class enrollment temporarily
for he left our midst early in January.
Days filled with jolly times followed for all. On February 6, 1940, a party was held
at the home of Joan Baumgartner.
All who constitute the Freshman class are looking forward to the remaining three
years of high school and to the day when we may be "looked up to" as the mighty seniors.

Our "0Id High!"
Once again, here as schoolmates assembled,
We fain would lift our hearts in song.
To our High School, our dear Alma Mater,
Let gladness the moments prolong,
We are proud of her lads and her lasses,
Of honors won in days gone by,
So here's a cheer for our High School,
For our old High School, Our dear "Old High"
Here's to our classes, Here's to our lasses,
Here's to the lads they adore,
Here's to the Senior, so 'tmightyf'
Junior, so 'tflightyf'
"Freshy," and "Sophomore,"
Let mirth and gladness, Banish all sadness,
And as the days go by,
You'll find us ready, and steady,
Boosting for our t'Old High!"
Soon for us will the school-days be ended,
The dreams of youth, that fade so fast,
But We know that the heart oft will ponder,
In mem'ry, o'er scenes that are past,
There are joys that will long be remember'd,
And friendships, too, that ne'er can die,
Then here's a cheer for our High School.
For our old High School, Our dear "Old High!"

Firsl Team Record
Friday night, Nov. 3, the Geneva Cardinals opened the season at Monmouth with an
impressive victory of 39 to 27. The Cards kept on their winning march by defeating a
stubborn Jefferson team by the score of 29 to 22. Next we played Petroleum and won by
a score of 38-34 and then gave up a winning streak by losing to the Berne Bears by a
close margin of 26-31. We kept right on losing by submitting first to the Monroe Bear-
katz 24-27 and faltered again when we played Kirkland by a score of 25-36. Geneva fans
were greatly surprised to see the Cardinals come to life in the final minutes in defeating
Decatur's capable Yellow Jackets 25-22. After winning this hard-fought battle, the boys,
being too sure of themselves, took a defeat at the hands of Hartford's small Gorillas 22-26.
In the last ten seconds of play Grile scored a tip-in shot to sew up the game for Geneva
over Bryant by the score of 30-29. Geneva again won a one-point victor y, this time over
Monroe's Bearkatz by a score of 35-34. After wilting in the last 3 minutes of play Cold-
water hit several long shots to beat the Cards37-28.
After a slow start the Cardinals won rather easily from Monmouth in their first game
of the county tourney by a score of 41-18. Our next opposition were the highly-touted Pleas-
ant Mills Spartans, who under the basket sniping of Clark, defeated the Cards 39-24. Pleas-
ant Mills went on to the Hnals and won from a stubborn Monroe team, 32-22, to win the
first team tourney. Monroe, however, won the second team tourney by defeating Jeffer-
son's seconds in the finals by the score of 39-11.
Grile, Geneva forward, won the T. A. Gottschalk medal for athletic ability and good
We played Bryant for the second time but didn't do as well as when we played them
the first time, losing this tilt by 26-17. We next defeated Albion, on their new fioor, by
the score of 27-22. We came out on the short end of a 63-46 score at Kirkland. Next Jef-
ferson threw a real scare into the Cardinals before we defeated them by 36-34. This time
we took revenge from Hartford's Gorillas who had defeated us earlier in the season. We
defeated them 45-25. Our last scheduled game turned out to be a victory. Geneva de-
feated Monmouth's Eagles by 30-18. Geneva then went to the sectional, winning their
first game from Monroe 39-36, but lost a close one to Kirkland by the score of 39-35.
Pleasant Mills then went on to win thesectional defeating Kirkland in the final game
Geneva, however, received some consolation by having Grile and Armstrong placed
on the first and second teams respectively of the all-sectional team.

The Developmenl ol America
The first settlers to lay foot on the mainland of North America were
the Europeans who dropped their anchors off the coast of San Salvador.
This was the beginning of the period known as the colonial period. Then
we find the war clouds gathering and we see our forefathers fighting for
Next came the Revolutionary period. Thus, now having won their
independence, they decide upon expanding to the west. Within less than a
century our forefathers had rounded out the boundaries of our nation.
While they marched still westward the scene shifts to the Civil War
period, which was a struggle between the North and the South.
The last period of the developing of our nation was the World War
period, which was fought "to make the World safe for democracy."
