Dear Parents, Friends, Relatives, Board of Education,
Teachers, and Fellow Classmates:
It is said that every rose has its thorn, every joy has
its undercurrent of sorrow, certain it is that the Class
of 1957 finds the pleasure of achievement dim ed by the
severing of school and class companionships. We, the Class
of 1957, come to the end of the road of our school daysgto
the end of the road where many new roads are leading forth
into the future. Some lead to the right, some to the left
but the road which we all are striving for, is the Road to
Perhaps at times the road will be narrow and steep but
as John Bunyan said, HBetter though difficult, the right
way to go Than wrong, though easy, where the end is woe.U
We thus far have had the helping hand of our parents who
have guided our steps aright and who have helped to make
it possible for us to be graduating here this evening. We
wish to show our appreciation to our parents by our accom-
plishments in life, by making the most of what we have.
'Tis the coward who stops at misfortuneg
'Tis the knave who changes each day, '
I 'Tis the fool who wins half the battle,
Then throws all his chances away.

I would say we bid you farewell with sincere regret. You
have shown much enthusiasm and interest in our advancement
which has made our lessons a pleasure.Our school days have
been so pleasant that it seems but yesterday that we start
ed in the first grade looking forward to graduation. We
shall ever look back with pleasure to the profitable hours
we have spent under your instruction and may our character
and knowledge which you have labored faithfully to give us
be used to your honor and credit. And to Mr. Brand, our
superintendent and class sponsor,who has guided us through
our last year of school with exceeding patience and good
advice, we wish to express our deepest gratitude.
And lastly I bid you farewell, classmates. Though we
shall never meet again as Seniors letfs not break the ties
that have bound us together in the years of happiness at
Milton High. And as we go forth into this large world upon
various roads of life may we never forget our happy times
at M. H. S. and those who have helped to make it so. NTO
the shortest path and the longest lane there comes an end.
Inevitable change brings the sweet, sad word---FAREWELL

It is our most earnest desire to take advantage of

I wonft start out by talking about the green Freshmen
who first aauntered through the Milton Twp. High School
halls in the fall of l955. I still maintain that only the
finished product can tell the story of an object's true
Whether it was due to our greenness four years ago, or
to rigourous study throughout our high school career, I do
not know but I truthfully feel to-night that we are an alto
-gether different group, our one big regret being that all
of that group of twenty-five have not followed us to the
end of that trail whose destination, at that time, was un-
known. I realize that some in our group have progressed
farther than others of us yet Andrew Jackson was once term-
ed a stupid student by one of his teachers but the name of
the instructor was never remembered. Remember, due to the
fact that I wasn't personally acquainted with him, I'm sim-
ply stating what I overheard one day in History class when
a special report was in progress.
Things went well for the first week of our high school
life. During this brief period of time our class election
occurred leaving the following names exposed as our offic-
ers: Pres: Bob Bruce, V. Pres: Carl Meyers, Sec: Donald
Neiling, Treas: Floyd Durliat, Student Council: Kathleen
Gorfman and Jim Baumberger. Miss Grass was our class spon-
No real excitement invaded the quiet of our peaceful
arc of learning after the Freshman initiationis excitement
had cooled off. We certainly showed them that if anyone
could take the hard knocks without flinching we could. I
believe any of us can still close our eyes and see that em-
barrassed look on the Freshmen's faces as that barefoot par
-ade progressed accross the floor.
During the first semester of this year Mary Tyler and
Andy Sterling started into school as two more Freshmen.
When we returned to school after taking the exams of
the first semester we found that Vance Porter had dropped
from our group.
Our life this year was very much routine. We studied
and recited to the best of our ability. It seems that in
whatever walk of life we may picture ourselves, there is al
-ways a goal shining ahead of us. This year we strived un-
ceasingly to show the upper classes that when they burned

us for green wood theyfd have some pretty wise ashes, so
to speak. I believe that we weren't such a complete fail-
ure that year because the intelligence test grades at the
end weren't so entirely disheartening.
Due to lack of funds our school closed in the later
part of April this year. Even if our vacation did extend
over a period of four months we soon stood in the door of
the study hall once more trying to find the desk which
would shelter our belongings until Mr. Brimmer saw fit to
move us to a more restricting position.
This year we found a few changes in our school. Opal
Richmond had moved, Mr. Bricker had given up his place as
Commercial teacher and we found that Mrs. Sparks was to
fill the place. Miss Goughlerfs place as Latin and Eng-
lish teacher was filled by Miss Nye and in two weeks Mr.
Brimmer gave up his position and Mr, Daniels entered our
school as the Science Instructor.
This year Jim Baumberger held the position of class
President,Theone Reimer was Vice President, Miriam Leien-
decker was Secretary, the Treasurer was Agnes Drummer and
the Student Council was Herbert Emrick and Mary Tyler.
Mrs. Sparks served as Class Sponsor.
A few of our group felt far less harassed this year
due to the fact that the faculty contained only five mem-
bers instead of the usual six. Since the school treasury
was long since depleated our music instructor, Miss Crass
had been released. I believe that anyone will testifyto
the lost feeling among the pupils with the knowledge that
there would be no choruses that year.
At the beginning of the second semester, we found
another vacant chair in our class. In checking over our
former list we found that Bill Harshman had dropped from
our ranks. Our class was getting to the age where we hat-
ed to see any one drop out because a year and a half had
been accomplished and we had begun to realize that none
of it was in vain.
School was again dismissed in May. The biggest share
of us, however, realized that we wouldnft have felt so
faint when we looked at those grade cards had we concen-
trated more the night before the final examinations.
As September lst neared we happened to notice a clip-
ping from the newspaper which stated that we would have
an extra week of freedom. We soon found that the delay'
in the installment of a new heating system was at fault.
A new janitor, Mr. Trumbull,was the efficient attendant
of this furnace.
Thne again had marched on and taken its course.
Mr. Martens had taken the position of Commercial
instructor and Mr. Cummins had decided to try his hand
at teaching music.
lFate had seen fit to rob us of four more of our mem
bers. This made a huge vacant spot in our class and we
hated to face the year without them. The four missing
links were Bernard Wilhelm, Andrew Sterling, Donald
Neiling and Floyd Durliat.
This year Bob Bruce acted as Class President, Jim
as Vice President, Helen Wagner as Treasurer, Betty
Cody as Secretary, Dale Richardson and Theone Reimer as
Student Council and Miss Nye as Class Sponsor.
Eater on during the year, Mary Tyler moved away.
The play NReady-Made Family was produced and it
certainly proved to be a huge financial success. The
proceeds of course were used for banqueting the Seniors.
Our banquet was given in the Legion hall in Bowling
Green and the success of the' evening depends upon the
opinions of the Seniors of 1936, however, we were well
repayed when they gave us the honor of marching in with
the Seniors on the night of Baccalaureate. We were also
glad that various members of our class had been remem-
bered in the last will and testament of that year.
Then, after three more months, ithe goal of our
school life seemed more like a reality.
Two new teachers appeared on the scene at this time
Miss Daniels replaced Miss Hanawalt in the Home Econom-
ics Department and Miss Snyder replaced Miss Nye as Eng-
lish, Latin and French teacher.
Marcella Schwab failed to appear at school this fall.
Dale Richardson was elected President, Jim Baumber-
ger as Vice President, Dorothy Dowden, treasurer, and
Miriam Leiendeeker, Secretary. Agnes Drummer and Bob
Bruce were elected as Student Council Members and Mr.
Brand'as Class Sponsor.
CLASS HISTORY CCon't5
On top of all of the other Senior undertakings, we
decided to edit an annual. Ifll pass over this lightly.
I hope that each and everyone of you will appreciate our
intense and untiring efforts. We certainly hope that
our work was not in vain.
The Senior Class,along with the Sophomores and Jun-
iors,captured the county trophy in the one act-play con-
The Juniors next treated us to a wonderful banquet.
I feel certain that none of us will ever forget our most
fervent thankfulness for this affair.
The three-act Senior Play was entitled NHobgoblin
House". This prooved to be another crowning success in
the lives of some of us.
Baccalaureate was the next Senior event. We all
appreciated the sermon very much and I am sure we all
profited by his remarks.
Tonight we are presenting the annual class night.
Little can be said of its success. The audience should
always be the judge.
Thursday night this seventeen shall march to the
stage as a class of Milton High School. Even before the
evening is over we shall pass from this stage as has-
beens or as just another few added to the long list of
alumni. Bearing this in our minds it is, for some with
heavy hearts and some with light, that we stand on the
edge of the cliff of life not knowing which way we will
go but wherever or however, we may go, I'm sure that
each and everyone of us will carry a warm place in our
hearts for M.H.S., just as the classes before us have

Last night, as I retired to my chamber, I noticed a
glass bowl on the stand. I couldn't imagine what it was,
nor could I find any plausible explaination as to how it
could have gotten there. When the Sand Man finally over-
came me, I had this bowl on my mind, and as a result, I
dreamed I was a crystal gazer.
Gazing into the crystal, the first scene that I saw
was an auto wreck, and though I could hardly convince my-
self it was true, there was Dr. Robert Bruce rendering
first aid to the injured and assisting him was his compe-
tent helper, Miss Helen Wagner. Looking at the sign-post,
I saw that this terrible accident had occurred at Broadway
and 42nd street in the large city of Milton Center.
The scene then changed to one of the worst places on
earth--a schoolroom. This was not so bad though, as it
was a School of Matrimony. Imagine my surprise, when I
saw two people at the front of the room I was sure I knew.
Yes, it was the teacher, Miss Kathleen Corfman Cvery ex-
perienced in her linej and one of her new students, Miss
Bernice Edwards. Kathleen was explaining to Bernice how
the school, I looked deeper into the crystal and
she might pay her tuition to the school by selling maga-
Looking over the class room, I found some more of my
classmates at an advanced age. There was Donald Moor, who
had replaced the late Florenz Zeigfield in the production
of the Follies, and this caused him to be the leading att-
raction in the class room.
There was Theone Reimer,who very well fit her present
position, being very forceful and effective as a Ten-Cent
Across from her sat Evelyn Junkins, who was pursuing
a mechanical line in addition to this schooling Notic-
ing somewhat of a disturbance on the sidewalk in front of
Betty Cody, with her four lovely children, arguing as to
whether or not they should go to the Pacific Coast via
aeroplane or train. The children finally won out, and they
decided to take the plane.
On arriving at the field they were approached by a
distinguished-looking gentleman, who was passing out Lit-
erature relating to cruelty to dumb animals. Lo, and Bc-
hold, my former classmate, Carl Meyers.

Passing on to the plane, I was stunned to see that
the stewardess was none other than Miss Dorothy Dowden,
and that she had a complete list of passengers.
A very forlorn looking person, wearing a heavy
black veil turned out to be none other than Agnes Drum-
mer. She explained that she was in deep mourning over
the death of her poodle dog, Priscilla.
The Stewardess asked the passengers not to dis-
turb the gentleman seated in the corner, Mr. Herbert
Emrick who was working on an automatic Question answer-
er, for the relief of High School students, who are of-
ten asked embarrassing questions.
The scene again changed to an athletic field,where
I was amazed to find Miss Miriam Leiendecker demonstrat
ing her efficience in the prominent sport of archery,
which she had learned through apprenticeship under Prof
A blast of the band in the grandstand, drew my at-
tention to its leader, a competent musician, Miss Flor-
ence Wagner. She looked very grand in her red, white,
and blue uniform.
The last scene I observed was the coronation of
King Janes, former Duke of Haney, and Queen Marian, Du-
chess of Lancaster. It was a gala occasion, and made
me envy my two friends, Jim Baumberger, and Marian Ste-

his diamond studded sword, and I viewed it with alarm,
as I saw him strike the Oueen's corwn from her head, in
his enthusiasm,and knock it into the hands of the Prime
I awoke to find that the noise I had heard when Jim
knocked off the Queen's crown, had only been the sound
of the crashing of the crystal bowl. I had shoved it
off the stand in my sleep, and was greatly relieved to
find that I had only been dreaming.

SOPHOMGRE CLASS HISTORY
We the Sophomore Class of 1956-57 want to wish you
Seniors the best of luck in this great world into which
you are about to step. '
The Sophomore History is not so brief but seemingly
interesting. When we came into high school there were
thirteen members from the eighth grade at Milton High
and we were given some new pupils from other schools.
The St.Louis School gave us nine and Custar Public gave
us five which made us a large class of twenty seven. We
elected the following officers: President, Paul Leien-
decker, Vice President, Paul Wilhelmg Secretary,Dorothy
Haas, Treasurer,Ruth Metzger, Student Council-Christian
Olhrich and Mae Nutterg Class Sponser,Mr. Daniels. Most
of the pupils in the class wanted to take part in ath-
letics even though we were a little backward we learned
rapidly. We all passed the Freshman year and eager to
climb to the top. I
Here we are as 1936-37 Sophomores. We were very
fortunate not to lose a member from our class. We elect-
ed the following officers: President, Ned Hathaway, Vice
President, Jake Heilmang Secretary, Raymond Wagner, and
student Council, Ruth Metzger and Dorothy Haasg Mr. Cum-
mins is our Class Spenser.
The Sophomore Class as a whole took quite an active
part in the school affairs.

ELEMENTARY GRADE PUPILS
You will no doubt have noticed that unlike our
method of treating the higher grades, we have not
written a history of each elementary grade.. The
main reasons for this, are that during our school
careers, we have not been closely associated with
this particular group of people, and besides, we
feel that this group is just making their begin-
ning in school life and that their class histories
will be really important in the years to come.
In publishing our book, however, we do not
wish to leave these pupils out altogether, because
it is they upon whom we can always depend when we
want a really good program for various entertain-
ments, and it is they who will, in a few short
years, be carrying on the traditions of our high
school. I ,
It seems that there is little else to say
about these pupils except that old saying, nIt's
the little things that count.H

Music because of its many contributions to a finer type
of citizenship is assuming a highly important place in the
curriculum of the modern school,
In our system, we have tried to make music for every
child, a reality. In doing this we have to provide for the
individual differences, the music program must be varied,
articulated, and adapted so as to furnish each level of
ability with an appropriate activity. Our course of study
provides for this in the grades, junior high, and high school
level, both in vocal and instrumental work.
The grade music is making remarkable progress inthe new,
"World of Music," series, the music book adopted by the
county this year. Each class meets three times a week and
do unison and part singing, listening and beginning theory.
The beginning instrumental work consists of the harmonica
band of seventy students and the junior orchestra of twenty-
five pieces.The harmonica band is the introduction to instru-
mental music and a way to judge the capability of a student
in taking an orchestra instrument. After proving his ability,
theystudy the instrument to which they are best adopted. As
soon as capable they are graduated from the junior to the
Our junior high or seventh and eight grades continue
their study of music, building their appreciation of good
music, part singing and theory form the background attained
in the grades, meeting twice weekly. The twenty eight mem-
bers of the junior chorus do three part singing and are to
be congratulated on their fine work.
High school music is an elective subject. Any person
who can qualify is permitted to take glee club, chorus or
orchestra, receiving credit toward graduation, depending
upon the number of courses taken. Those people showing out-
standing ability are given awards at the end of the school
The girls glee club of twenty-six members, the boys glee
club of twenty voices, the mixed chorus of both clubs com-
bined and the senior orchestra of twenty-five members per-
form at many of our school and community functions and
climax the years work by taking part in the Wood County
musical festival, held annually at Bowling Green University.
The fine success of our music department is due to full
cooperation of the administration and school board.The boards
investment of several hundred dollars in new instruments has
made our orchestra one of the best in the county.

The Basketball season was opened on November 2O, 1956,
with our first opponent being Pemberville. They had the
advantage over us by having a very tall center who scored
eleven points for them. The game was lost by eight points,
the score being 15 and 25. We considered this fair be-
cause of the competition we had.
The next game was with Portage Twp, on November 25th.
In this game everything seemed to go wrong. They were one
point ahead at the half but they ran up an eleven point
lead before the end of the game. We hated to lose this game
because we did not have another one scheduled with them.The
score was 16 and 27.
Next came our game with Liberty on December 4th, In
this game three of our regular players did not play. The
game was played over time and Milton won out in the end due
to some good foul shooting by Heilman and a last minute
field goal made by Whitacre. The game ending with the score
being 25 and,22.
On December ll, we entertained Haskins who had two very
fast players and also had good teamwork. In this game we
were beaten by a large score lO and 47,and one of our play-
ers went out on fouls.
our next game was away from home on December 18, at
Sylvania. This was a new school to compete against so we
did not know what to expect. Their team beat us as bad as
Haskins did the game before. In this game we had a good
excuse for not doing so good because Sylvania had so many
more students to pick their material from.
In the next game easier competition came when we play-
ed Grand Rapids on December 22. We won by nine points the
score being 18 and 9. This was a very rough game but there
were not many fouls called.
During Christmas vacation, on December 29, the boys
played the Alumni which was made up of some of the teachers
and star players of former years. This game was way out of
our reach because it seemed that they got most of the large
players to play against us. We lost after much effort by a
score of lO and 26.
Again on January 8, Liberty came over to see if they
could beat us this time. our star players were all present
this time and instead of playing over time we won over them
by nine points. The score was 26 and l7.

game with both teams very evenly matched we lost
two points. This was one of the best games we

was with Grand Rapids on February 12,

Last of all came the tournament game on February 19
which was perhaps the worst of all. The highest score
made by anyone on our team was four points while the
highest on the Luckey team was fourteen. The score was
45 a 12. Luckey lost by only a few points in the finals
Even though they had a poor beginning, the girls
had a very successful basketball season. They lost only
fourgames of the thirteen playedg
Several of the team will be lost through graduation.
Since in the Inter-class Tournament the underclassmen
received the honors, we are looking forward to a suc-
cessful season next year.

1 TRACK REPORT
We have a fine group of boys out for track this year.
This is the second year we have had a track team here, and
since most of the boys are still young, a fine team is ex-
pected in a few years. Two of our boys, HDonH Moor and
Wcappyu Meyers, are the only boys we will lose by gradua-
tion. Don is a fine high jumper while Cappy excells in the
half-mile run. We wish our team good luck in future years
and hope it will establish itself as one of the leading
teams of the county. The boys that participated are: Don
Moor, Carl Meyers, Buckeye Durliat, Bus Dunn, Jake Heilman
Gaylord Groff, Harry Whitacre, Don Harshman, Ross Hall and

The reserves of Milton High School for 1956-57
had a very successful season. In their games they
won nine out of thirteen games. The four lost games
were played on the opponents' floors.
Harry Whitacre played in most of the games as
guard and held up his part quite successfully.
The fact that their opponents never ran up a
high score shows that the reserves had good defense.
The second team players are promising material for
the future first teams.
The scores for the reserve games were as follows:
Portage 9 Tontogany
Milton lO Milton
Liberty 9 Hoytville
Milton ll Milton
Haskins 7 Grand.Rapids 8
Milton lO Milton l3
Grand Rapids 6 Haskins l7
Milton 17 Milton 7
Liberty 9 Henry 6
Milton 15 Milton 8
In the season of 1956-57, the Milton High School team
lived up to its school's tradition, by compiling a record
of 8 wins and 5 losses.
The team was selected from 15 candidates, which gives
weight to the fact that the team members developed them-
selves into a winning aggregation.
The pitching was ably handled by Donald, HDizH Feehan
and Harold, NBusW Dunn,
The catching was well received by Dale Richardson one
of our only two Seniors. We will always remember ULib'sW
ability to run out bunts.

JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL
This school year the Junior High boys was very eager to
show their skill in basketball. At the first practice l4
boys showed their willingness to prove their athletic skill.
These boys taken as a whole were for the most part inexperi-
enced and small in stature.
Ten out of last years first twelve graduated into High
School, leaving only two subs to constitute the nucleus of
this years Junior High team.
The boys played 9 games during the regular playing
season, winning l and losing 8. The following were the
results of the games.
Tontogany 55 Milton 3
Grand Rapids 10 Milton 6
Haskins 24 Milton 7
Tontogany 25 Milton 19

At the close of the regular season the boys accepted
an invitation to play at North Baltimore in the county
tournament, They drew Liberty the team they had beaten
before. The first half of this game prove to be Miltonfs
downfall, caused by the boys being over confident, over the
victory mentioned above. The last half was played on a more
even basis but the lead piled up by Liberty during the first
half was too much. The final scoreg Liberty 28, Milton ll.

The year '56 and '57 has brought many new activi-
ties to our school, Among these are Tennis, Volley Ball,
Archery, Loop Tennis and Table Tennis.
These were all supervised by Mr. Domer our W P A In-
During the winter months much interest was shown in
the volley ball games by both boys and girls. Teams were
chosen and scheduled games were held every noon.
Our new tennis court provided much entertainment for
the high school students. Despite little experience, many
of them have shown the ability to become fair players. As
yet the equipment is inadequate, but we are hoping for
better facilities in the future. f
An archery set has been acquired and many demonstra-
tions have been given by the instructor, Mr. Daniels.
Loop tennis is a very strenuous game and one must be
quite agile in his movements to play well in this sport.
Mostly boys compete in this game, and it fits well into
a noon-hour recreation period.
Table tennis or ping pong, is a very lively game and
can be played either singles or doubles. A tournament
created much interest among the boys in the school.Around
thirty took part in it.We also had a match with Tontogany
which Milton won.

The plot concerned a house, which, in order to keep
the owners from discovering a kidnapping plot, was haunted
to frighten them away.
Bob took the part of the old caretaker in a splendid
manner. His part was very difficult to play, and the way
in which he did it was a credit to our school. .
Agnes, in the part of the dignified spinster, was su-
