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
