Class History In September, 1927, thirty tiny seeds were planted in the 'rich soil of Monroe's garden pro- vided by the Board of Education. Under the careful cultivation of Miss Siler and Miss Crawford each plant sprouted and soon peeped through the earth eager to grow. As each plant grew, more help was needed for their welfare and during the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth years of their development Miss Eikenbery, Miss Leach, Miss Swink, Miss Markey, and Mr. Baker provided plant food in the form of reading, writing, arithmetic, history, grammar, geography, spelling, and physi- ology. During these years some plants were added and some were transplanted to other gardens, but those new plants that remained were Ralph Lipps, Carl Shaffer, Meryl Pence, Eleanor Woolf, Hubert Houdeshell, and Charles Overholser. By this time the plants were beginning to show signs of tiny buds forming on each sturdy stem. At the beginning of the seventh year, six new plants from Eldorado and Elsie Mae Banta, an out- standing plant from the sixth grade, were added to this bed. Mr. Rust and Mr. Holsinger aided the development for the next two years until at the time of the Eighth Grade Commencement, May 7, 1935, these buds opened into half blown flowers. In April of 1935 Martha Jane Gates won a silver medal in the County Written Spelling Contest. At the close of this year Glenella Campbell and Charles Overholser won the American Legion mfdals. The following year the plants were placed in a somewhat different environment and fifteen new ones added from West Manchester and Butler, making forty-four in all, the largest plot in the garden. These blooms, now classified as freshmen under the guidance of Miss Tressel, held a meeting and chose as their leaders: James Smith, president: Marjorie Fowble, vice president, Norma Jeanes, sec- retary-treasurerg and Billy Joe Rautsaw, Student Council member. A memorable event was the first freshman party at which nearly eighty were present. That year, in the County Scholarship Contest, Charles Overholser placed first in algebra, Marjorie Fowble placed first in Latin I, and Marjorie Strickler placed second in Latin I. In the district contest, Charles placed first and Marjorie Fowble fourth. In the state contest, Charles placed seventh. At the end of the year this class won the at- tendance contest and was awarded a trip to Dayton while the other classes were studying. In the morning they visited the Wright Airportg in the afternoon they enjoyed themselves very much at Lakeside Park, which the caretakers opened especially for them. During the sophomore year three plants were transplanted and seven were added, but only three of these survived-Junior Custer, Avis Hundley, and Leon Schlotterbeck. At one time during the year the garden flourished with forty-six plants, the most abundant growth it was ever to pro- duce. The officers that year were Richard Bell, presidentg Roy Parks, vice president, Marjorie Fowble, secretary, Leon Schlotterbeck, treasurer: and Carl Shaffer, Student Council member. Miss Weaver was a most affable and efficient guide. Charles Overholser placed first in geometry in the county. Glenella Campbell was awarded the Citizenship medal. Since this garden had won the distinction of having a larger number of plants than any other garden bed, the proud plants felt quite a let-down on the first day of their junior year when six plants were found to be missing. Then, too, during that year four more plants were withdrawn, but just as they were about to become discouraged two new blooms, Maxine Emrick and Mary Stiver, entered and they felt better with their total then at thirty-six. Charles Overholser was chosen presi- dent: Leon Schlotterbeck, vice president: Martha Jane Gates, secretary-treasurerg and Marjorie Fowble, Student Council member. With Miss Watt and Miss Hart as advisers they felt quite prepared for the big and busy year ahead. The year was started off with a bang by having a scavenger hunt at which they scoured the country for miles around for everything from a whalebone to a freshman. Under the excellent direction of Miss Watt the presentation of the Junior play, "Fixin' Aunt Fanny", was a great success and the auditorium was filled to capacity. After the proceeds from the play were safely tucked in the bank they felt wealthy enough to start plans for one of Monroe's most outstand- ing Junior-Senior receptions. With the splendid cooperation of Miss Watt, Miss Hart, and the in- dividual plants the Eaton Country Club was miraculously transformed into the deck of a ship, ready to leave the harbor for the uneven jounrey on Life's broad sea. Tiny sailboats marked each place. silver shells served as nut cups, and bowls of goldfish were interesting centerpieces. Honors that year went to Marjorie Fowble, who placed second in American History Scholarship, Marjorie Strickler, who placed first in French I Scholarshipg and Lois Petry, who placed second in French I and who received the citizenship medal. They felt quite important when, on that thrilling night of March the eighteenth, their tournament team composed of James Smith, Billy Joe Rautsaw, Leon Schlotter- beck, Avis Hundley, and Roy Parks won a fast game from the seniors of 1938. i151 Class History continued The first day of the senior year found thirty-six plants present and eager to take part in the many senior activities. With competent leaders-James Smith, presidentg Glenella Campbell, vice president, Eleanor Woolf, secretaryg Marjorie Strickler, treasurer, and Lois Petry, Student Council memberg and the splendid advice and cooperation of Mrs. McCoy, they completed a year which all will remember with happy and loving memories. They Went to Dayton to have their pictures takeng presented one of the Judge Hardy Family plays called "Skidding"g sponsored the annual Basketball Team and Scholarship Team Banquetg planned and executed their Baccalaureate and Commencement programs. This plot of the garden produced many prize blooms in senior and general scholarship examinations and in athletic events. Charles Overholser won seventh place out of the first ten in Senior Scholarship, Fern Fourman won first place in typing scholarship, Marjorie Strickler won second place in English IV Scholarship. Five of the Basketball squad were seniorsg namely, James Smith, Billy Joe Rautsaw, Leon Schlotterbeck, Avis Hundley, and Dale Miller, seven of the Baseball team were seniorsg namely, Billy Joe Rautsaw, James Smith, Leon Schlotterbeck, Avis Hundley, Dale Miller, Charles Royer, and Ralph Lipps. Again this year they won the class tournament. Those that have weathered the rain, hail and sleet storms of life together in the garden through all twelve years are: Richard Bell, Glenella Campbell, Martha Jane Gates, Marie Howell, Norma Jeanes, Lois Kemp, Dale Miller, Hubert Ott, Lois Petry, Billy Joe Rautsaw, Charles Royer, and James Smith. Since Jesse Harrison and Ila Pepper withdrew during the Christmas vacation, there were only thirty- four plants remaining. These plants, nurtured for many years in rich soil and cared for by Monroe's capable and efficient gardeners, the faculty, are now ready and eager to spread joy, beauty, and beneficence wherever the future may place them, thereby making this old world a more pleasant place in which to live. -Glenella Campbell Class Will " We Bequeath " We, the Seniors of the Class cf 1939 of Monroe High School, being of sound mind, that is, of as sound mind as Seniors usually are, with well trained memories and almost superhuman under- standing, and realizing that we are about to make our demise forever from these halls in which we have engaged in the process of gleaning knowledge for several years, do make and publish this our last will and testament. First we do direct that our funeral services shall be conducted by our friends, superintendent, and his all-wise and ever competent faculty, who have been our guardians for so long, only asking, as the last injunction of the dying, that the funeral be carried on with all the dignity and pomp becom- ing such a solemn and momentous occasion. From our vast store of scholastic possessions and varied experiences, we will and bequeath the following: I, Glenella Campbell, grant my winning personality to Albert Roe. Here's hoping Albert will not take too much advantage of it. I, Fern Ruth Fourman, bestow upon Ettaleene Irwin my flirting ways. I, Mary Lucille Stiver, bequeath my ease in winning friends and my ability to assist girls who work in the library to Junior Petry. To John Farst, of next year's Senior Class, goes the right and duty to be the best all-around student dramatist. This right is bequeathed by Lois Earlyne Kemp. I, Ruth Marcellis Cable, grant my trucking ability to Gerald Shaffer. We are sure he would be an attraction for the Senior play next year? '? ? ? I, Marjorie Lucille Strickler, bequeath to Albert Roe my poetic ability with the hope that he may say in a more eloquent way to Ettaleene Irwin, "I love you." I, Marjorie Lou Fowble, willingly forfeit my fear of mice to Wallace Campbell. I hope he enjoys them better than I do! I, Maxine Emrick, bestow upon Ada Mae Miller my quiet manners and twinkling eyes. I, Martha Jane Gates, leave my race horse gait to Forest Barnes. I, Lois Elizabeth Petry, leave my ability to converse in Democracy class to Martha Deaton. I, Norma Alice Jeanes, leave to Irene Gruber my gray hair from worrying over the annual. ll6l Class con tin ued I, Alberta Jayne Ammerman, leave to Marie Harrison my angelic ways. I, Mary Eleanor Woolf, bestow upon Roland Miller my bronze curls. To Martha Wagner, is bequeathed the right and duty of being the school's best girl athlete next year by Marjorie Ellen Smith. We hope this training will enable her to be the head of her "House". I, Ruthmary Beane, leave to Bill Sink my trumpet. It is amusing to think how he will annoy the neighbors as he prepares to participate in the 1940 Music Festival. The privilege of being the biggest talker in school is left to Carrie Rose Shaffner by Mary Marie Howell, who has had that questionable distinction in our class. I, Billy Joe Rautsaw, bequeath to Arthur House my standing on the baseball team. I, James William Smith, will my most highly prized possession, a cackling laugh, to Helen Eiken- bery. I-Iere's hoping she will be able to exercise it in English class as I did. I, Meryl Donald Pence, will my "suave finesse" to Bill Sink. I, Hubert Edgar Ott, will my studiousness to Emil Lipps. I, Carl Dorsey Shaffer, bestow upon Wallace Campbell my capability of securing dates with the girls. Here's hoping he can use the library telephone as often as I did. I, Loy Clinton Parks, will my bashfulness to Marjorie Dalrymple. I, Roy Clayton Parks, will to Betty Chellis the amazing ease with which I can coax up a straight face when a teacher is looking at me. I, William Leon Schlotterbeck, bestow upon Fred Young my job as class entertainer. I, Charles Marlin Royer, bestow upon Junior Johnson my stoppage in speech. I, Charles Lindsey Overholser, leave to Junior Houdeshell my ability to make love, especially to Freshmen girls. I, Hubert Dean Houdeshell, bequeath to Junior Fowble by guitar and mountain music. I, Virgil C. House, leave to Kathryn Duffield my low smooth voice. But we don't want Virgil to lose it entirely now that he is dating Martha Deaton. I, Richard Benjamin Bell, bestow upon Irene Gruber my jolly good nature. May she be the belle that I was. . I, Howard Allen Mayers, leave to Mary Elizabeth Copp my red hair and freckles. I, Avis Wilfred Hundley, bestow upon Forest Barnes my basketball suit. I hope it fits him as well as it did me. I, Dale Leon Miller, bestow upon Jeanette Royer my height and slenderness. To Allie Tidd, Ralph Willard Lipps bequeaths the right to become the official sheik of the Senior Class. I, Harvey Junior Custer, bestow upon Virginia Somers my pessimistic attitude. The subjoined list will be recognized as entailed estates to which we do declare the Class of 1940, the real and rightful successors: To next year's freshman class we bequeath our sincere sympathy. We would comfort them with the reminder that we were once freshmen-but look at us now. What man has done, man can do, runs an old adage. To next year's sophomore class we bequeath consolation. The first year was the hardest. We urge them to deal mercifully with the freshmen, but they will doubtless forget our admonition, as all sophomore classes do. To next year's juniors we bequeath the fact that your journey is half finished. We urge t.hem to enjoy high school life cleanly and beautifully, for they will only pass this way once. To next year's seniors we bequeath our dignity. May they uphold it forever, with all serious- ness and gravity, endeavoring to realize its vast importance, in spite of their natural lightminded- ness and irresponsibility. Also we bequeath our seats in the Senior Assembly to whoever is able to grab them first. We bequeath any stubs of pencils, erasers or scraps of paper that we may accidently leave behind us in the excitement and haste of gathering up our cherished treasures for the last time. May they feel free to make use of them, and feel perhaps, that they may, in some mystic way, im- part some of our great knowledge to them. The foregoing bequests are made by this Senior Class, about to reach its state of dissolution. The Class has not-in its high spirit of philanthropy-bequeathed its entire possessions, for, although the class is making its demise collectively, it will continue to function individually. Each member will retain his or her heart forever unless the rightful owner claims it. Given under our hands and our collective seal, this, the 39th day of Apriary, 2013. -Martha Jane Gates l1'7l Class Prophecy "A Trip To Mars" After sitting and writing for an hour or so, I leave my paper and vow that I'll go And visit a while on Mars in the air, As in 1950, it's done everywhere. So I plan to leave the earth the same day In the new-fangled rocket, which I've heard people say Was invented at last by the great Hubert Ott, Who pondered and studied on this rocket a lot. On the way through the sky I pass a great plane, As it comes nearer to me, I see through the pane The pilot is someone I know very well- Yes, I know it's James Smith, I plainly can tell. When at last I arrive at my destination, I find a great laboratory quite near to the station, And I wait not so long until I discover It is Miss Norma Jeanes'-a classmate fanotherj. I hired me a guide and was shown all around And it happened, by chance, during this that I found Virgil House, who had come to Mars to explore, But who really on earth ran a hardware store. Then a thought of my telescope comes to my mindg At once I procured it and hastened to find Anyone on the earth whose face I might knowg And to get a bird's-eye-view of my home world below. As I sight down past the moon and the stars, I forget altogether that I'm really on Mars, For very near I see Ralph Lipps, on a tractor With radio attachments which is a new factor. And there I can see in a field of bluegrass, A large group of thoroughbreds.which none can surpass: I know them immediately and can easily tell They graze on the farm of Dick and Bertie Bell. To Cincy, just now, I direct my attention, For surely it is worthy of mention, For there I can see on the baseball field Rautsaw, who really his left arm can wield. And there on the side carrying the bats Is Meryl Pence, in person, who's saying f'Aw, rats!" When with his arms full he takes a big spill, And slowly gets up and goes on with a will. In the great sea of faces I see in the crowd One face that seems most unusually proud She waves to the pitcher when she catches his eye, Marjorie Lou is content when she sees his reply. In the suburbs I see two cottages small And in the back yard talking over the wall Are Marie Howell and Mary Stiver living side by side, And ever their friendship shall live and abide. To New York City next I take view, And as I search the large city through, The first that I see is a great rocket company, The Parks brothers find that the dollars are many. The next thing to meet my wondering gaze, As I look down upon the great city maze, Is a designer's shop with most beautiful stylesg Emrick and Cable fashions are known for miles. Now whom do I see over this radio? CTe1evision has long been in use you knowj To be sure since the death of the late Major Bowes Leon Schlotterbeck took his place as everyone knows. And there goes Avis Hundley down the street Whom, I've heard it rumored, no one could beat As secret detective number fifty-five, Who always catches them, dead or alive. E181 Class Prophecy comm ned A hospital now comes to my sight, And I wonder if I'm seeing aright, When Junior Custer emerges therefromg So a doctor at last he decided to become. A moment later two nurses enterg On their work alone their attentions centerg Martha Jane Gates and Ruthmary Beane Each has become a surgical queen. Through the window I see Lois Petry at work As she types nothing seems at all dismal or murk When in walks Carl Shaffer and prepares to dictate And tells her to hurry so they wou1n't be late. My aim I now take to a state in the west, To Hollywood, yes. as you surely have guessed, For across the MGM studio lot Goes Howard Mayers the comedian, right on the dot. For a while in San Francisco now I shall pauseg You'll find that I have a most worthy cause, For at the university I have several friends, Each of whom some subject attends. The first that I see is a tall dark-haired man, Who as mathematics professor some years ago began, Bright people like him he hopes to incite, 'Tis Charles Overholser who has proved genius quite. The next whom I see as I still search around, Is Glenella Campbell who, I have found, Is the Englfsh professor we all had expected, With the sweet disposition time had not affected. Then I behold a teacher of history, Her position thereas does not seem a mystery. For Eleanor Woolf has a great history knowledge, Which one must have to teach in a college. The last I recognize is the music teacherg I know her broad smile and each other feature Fern Fourman has always tried her best, And puts forth an effort whate'er be the test. I glance at the harbor and see there a ship, That just is returning home from a trip, I see Hubert Houdeshell in captain's uniform, Who can handle his ship in sunshine or storm. Now I scan again the country over, For perhaps, in so doing, I may discover Some one else there whom I might recognize, And, indeed, I do, to my great surprise. I see Lois Kemp with pencil and paper, Who, in way of cartoons, has cut a new caper, For though she had told us that "Herbert" was dead, I'm sure in the comics of him you've all read. Next I notice a sign on a picturesque house, Which does immediately my attention arouse, It says "Marjorie's Beauty Shop", then I well know Marjorie Smith in beauty culture has at last made a Ngo". Who's that who seems in such a big hurry, And who down the street does scurryard flurry? I smile to myself when at last I am sure, It's Charles Royer, the dog-catcher, very demure. I'm about to withdraw my telescope at last When in Washington, D. C., at the courthouse so vast Dale Miller to the Supreme Court is recently elected For him such a position no one had detected. I've become very weary and lay my 'scope down And think of the people whom, in searching, I found: I conclude that each one whom I saw there below Had been '39 seniors from good old Monroe. -Marjorie Strickler I 191 Facts and Fancies fs.-,.,,,,,',,-f,,,,-,,,.,,l',,,- ,,:: ::::::::::,,:::::::::- 0 ,,-,- ,,,,--,,-,O -,,, ,,,, Q, Name Nickname Alias Pet Saying ofilbglgllsrlzlilnonn no 1?lfi Y,ll?QLQlsl Allgellc "Y91l Dim-Wifi HBquLhgg1l Bgge Pinkf -7- -- gh, My I-Eau i "I Like You, Too" no lllsk on Eiil Brave BOY o on ,mnllilglgown giljg Awww' --MH B10I1dif2V gggiy Mighty Clever W- S "IV'11 Mow Han lgolnl Glgmgjla Carnpbell A P.AG.

They scored 654 points for an average of 29.73 points per game, while their opponents scored 463 points for a game average of 21.05 points. They finished the season with a record of 18 victories and 4 defeats. In the Preble County League, Monroe was second, only one game behind the leaders. The forwards, Horine and Rautsaw, topped the league in scoring with 133 and 124 points respectively. Monroe won their first three games in the county tournament but were defeated in the finals. On the All-County team picked by the sports writers, Horine was placed on the first team and Smith was given honorable mention, and on the teams chosen by the tournament officials, Horine was on the first team and Raut- saw and Young on the second team. In the district tournament at Dayton, the Wildcats were de- feated by Reeseville, one of the best Class B teams in the tournament. A Dayton newspaper com- mented on how well the Monroe team played despite the fact that they had only a small gym with a ceiling as low as the baskets in the Dayton Coliseum in which to practice. We hope that in a few years the Monroe teams will not be handicapped by the lack of a large gym in which to practice and play their games. Five members of the squad-Schlotterbeck, Rautsaw, Smith, Miller and Hundley -will graduate this year. BASKETBALL SUMMARY Monroe ...... 19 West Alexandria Monroe ...... 20 Dixon ..........

PUT J Athletics Baseball PREBLE COUNTY CHAMPIONS Monroe won the championship of the county by winning two straight games from Camden, the winners of the southern division of the county. The first game was played at Camden and won by the score of 3-1. Thirteen Camden batters struck out and they secured only one hit. The second game was a no-hitter. Camden had only one base-runner during the entire game and Rautsaw struck out 11. This 8-0 victory was played on the Monroe diamonds. Monroe will represent Preble county at the district meet at Dayton this May. The team won the title of the northern division by winning five consecutive games last fall. Rautsaw gave up a total of 13 hits and struck out 65 batters in the five contests for the average of 2.6 hits and 13 strike outs per game. The Parent Teachers Association gave a banquet in honor of the team at the close of the season. Coach Owen Huntsman of Earlham College gave the address. Eight members of the squad, Rautsaw, Smith, Schlotterbeck, Royer, Lipps, Hundley, Miller, and V. House, will graduate this spring.

Miss Watt: "How do you define 'black as your hat'?" Roy: "Darkness that may be felt." It must have been a bright boy like Howard Mayers, who said: "Rubbers are something which if your feet are dry you haven't walked thru the snow without."

Though in time must all depart, Memories rest in every heart, Of the days when they were here, Singing with great joy and cheer, Of thy desks and chairs and walls, Laughter ringing thy halls Though we'd search the wide world through, We'd find none so fair as you. l631 H A Yr A 1 .
