72' n. 3 0l'eLUOI" Many ot the important details of our school life 'll wi be forgotten in a short while, as we accept the responsibilities of adulthood Therefore the Senio Cl . , r ass ot i954 presents this permanent record of this year's major events. 2 Ceo rezienfing Administration Classes Activities Comjalimenls of Ziegler - Gearig - Horning john Deere Dealers 3 Sports aff' cibeokcafion To Otha Cunningham we, the Class of l954, wish to dedicate this issue of the Mirror. Otha is a fellow who has a smile for every student and who is liked and respected by all of them. Mr. Cunningham has driven a school bus for the past fourteen years. ln addition to transporting the students to and from school, Otha also drives the basketball and football players to the out-of-town games. In all of his years of driving the sports bus he has only missed six times. We, the publishers of this book, appreciate the great school spirit which is exhibited by Otha and we are proud to use this means of thanking him. , 4 SCHOOL BOARD - Cecil Prosser, Lee Powers, Gene Thompson, Waldo Miller, Harry Schwartz.

Again this year, the boys were confronted with new coaches and a change in style of ball. As the season progressed, Coach Nonnemacher and Coach Brazen proved themselves highly capable. They installed an altogether different type of offense, and by the latter half of the season were receiving splendid results. ROUND ROBIN The annual Round Rabin was held September ll, at Park Stadium in Bryan, The purpose of this event is to acquaint the fans with the type of football they are to see during the year in the Northwestern Ohio League. Each team plays two quarters, meeting different oppon- ents in each. Montpelier, having drawn Napoleon and Defiance, opened the evening by playing to a scoreless tie with Napoleon. In their second encounter, they met Defiance, the defending league champions, who twice crossed the home forces goal. Final score I3-O. 'PELIER O DEFIANCE 34 'Pelier traveled ta Defiance to inaugurate the l953 season. The trip was far from successful, but signs of improvement were apparent as Defiance was held score- less in the fourth period. 'PELIER 8 NAPOLEON 32 The Napoleon Wildcats invaded the home grounds and triumphed as 'Pelier fell before the hard-hitting and well coached Napoleon Wildcats. The big difference in this game was Napoleon's ability to capitalize on the Locos miscues - Yet the game was much closer than the score revealed. 'PELIER 35 LIBERTY CENTER 6 The Locomotive offensive punch finally emerged as 'Pelier walked off with a stunning victory over the Liberty Center Tigers. After a few changes in the 'Pelier lineup, they found themselves with a three touch- down lead by halftime. The team was beginning to adopt itself to Coach Nonnemacher's style and was determined that this wouIdn't be the end of its victories. 'PELIER 6 BEDFORD 38 The Bedford Mules of Lambertville, Michigan, again proved to have too much speed and ability for the Pelierites. Although the game wasn't close, it did help season the Locos for opponents yet to come. 'PELIER O DELTA I2 The results of the Montpelier Locomotives trip to Delta was a heart breaking defeat. The Delta Panthers showed little more potentiality than the Locos, except for two first-half touchdowns. It was a close, hard- fought battle with the brilliant passing of Jim Green making the difference. Coach Nonnemacher was not dis- appointed, and had praise for his team's effort. 'PELIER 34 BRYAN 0 All defeats of the l953 football squad were for- given after the trouncing they handed to their arch rival, at Park Stadium in Bryan. Bryan, riddled by injuries, was by no means a match for the inspired Locomotives. No single individual could be singled out, this was a team effort all the way. Fumbles caused by the aggres- siveness of the Locomotives literally ruined any chance the Golden Bears of Bryan ever had. This victory meant more to the team and coaches than the rest of the games put together. 'PELIER 6 WAUSEON 32 The annual homecoming was spoiled by the Wau- seon Indians, who failed to read advance billings, as they romped to an easy thirty-two-to six victory. Montpelier suffered from a let down after their brilliant victory over Bryan. The body was there but the heart was lack- ing which was quite easy to see by all who attended. But this loss set the stage for PeIier's last two engage- ments. 'PELIER 7 HILLSDALE 6 As had been the occasion all season, the Locomo- tives played better away from home. They upset the favored Hillsdale Hornets who were riding the crest of a brilliant winning streak. This was said by many to be the best and hardest played game of the season for the Locomotives, inext to Bryan, of course? although in no sense was it a runaway. A fourth quarter touchdown and brilliant defensive play brought victory to the home team. 'PELIER 40 SCOTT B I2 The Montpelier Locomotives thoroughly trounced the Toledo Scott B team on "Dad's Night" to end the season of four victories and five defeats. Nine seniors ended their careers by demonstrating the brand of foot- I'-all they were capable of playing. After a slow start, Pelier finished the season with three victories out of the last four games. Coach Nonnemacher was highly pleased with the season since he was new and the offense had been changed completely. Since the team was loaded with underclassmen, a better season should be expected next year. l Cmrzjalimerzls of Montpelier Creamery 78 Cheerleaders VARSITY Gerry Whitney Helen Vanstaen Sue Loghry Pat Bechtol RESERVE lsobel Dickson Barbara Byall Janet Kasper Pat Strobel JUNIOR HIGH Delores Steinke Garnet Wolf Nancy Starr Georgene Bany CIJIIIPHIIIETZIX of Hfl1IiZ8,.S' Greenlmuse .-4" Comjilimenzs of I"a1'me1'5 cbd 1WerChanls State is Savings Bank 80 Compliments of Houghton Motor Sales C0 .sinior Ziwgefgaff gag gClIfLef6Cl,!

The athletic program of the school is broad and far reaching enough to meet the needs and desires of most of the boys who display an interest in sporting events. The training begins at an early age and continues throughout the four years of high school. A boy can begin to play football and basketball as early as the seventh grade and continue it from then on. The coach- ing staff of the school is capable of presenting an efficient and varied sports program to the student body. The men of the faculty interested in the coaching of sports events are: ROBERT STORRER - junior high football and basketball PETE NONNEMACHER - varsity football and track and freshman basketball. SAM BRAZEN - varsity basketball and baseball HAROLD KARNES - varsity golf. 86 QW Walter Bumb, Kenny Crowe, Mike Page, Larry Martin, Mr. Karnes, Delmar Karnes, Bill Oliver, Richard Cook Compliments of Hause Valve Company 87 CJmr1jJIimmzt,s' of fY1YIlIlI,S Shoe Store 89 JAMES T.

During our years of travel, we have come across many of our old classmates. We were sur- prised to learn of the advancement of most of them. While on a short tour, we met Larry Martin, a tele- vision announcer, who gave us much information con- cerning our classmates. He gave us some inside informa- tion on Richard Cook's triumph over Carol Smethurst in being elected President of the United States. lt seems that the Conservative Party is more powerful than the Radical Party. Larry gave us a news note from the Moon. It seems that Kenny Crowe has finally fulfilled his life's desire by making a trip to the Moon. His latest re- ports were that he found Richard McQuilken and Lynette Mercer living quite a peaceful life there, after being marooned on their latest space ship expedition. We later learned that the famed coach, Bill Oliver, was recently appointed Interplanetary Coach of the year. His and our classmate, the honorable Senator from Ohio, Phyllis Cook, has proposed a bill to amend the four platoon system in football. We were very much surprised to hear that Doris Chroninger was given an award for being the champion flag pole sitter of the year. She has decided to invest her millions in Clarence Fisher's atomic-propelled auto fac- tory. We stopped in at the first "Fly-ln Restaurant", owned and operated by Norma Jean Snyder and Jan Luke. Their opening night featured Robert Priest and his magic violin. Their success is due largely to efforts of their manager, Larry Lett. l imagine you have read in the newspapers of the flas'1 flood which destroyed a Dairy Queen chain, owned by Down Watts. Rumors are that she will use insurance money to open a boot factory. CFour buckle Artics, speciality!! When we were stationed in Texas for a short time, we met Loren Bickham and Roger Scott, now famous cattlemen, who sponsored a benefit rodeo. Celebrities were Gary Connolly and Martin Bechtol doing stunts on out-dated steeds. The main attraction was Gerald McCool, famous atomic ace, assisted by his charming partner, Joy Blosser. We were transferred to Chicago where we were informed of two new developments to advance our coun- try. Mary Neilands, famous inventor, has released her newest nuclear-action roller skates. She will give a dem- onstration soon, since her chief demonstrator, Pat Foust, recently acquired a broken leg in a trial run. The newest development in the medical world was made by Dr. Constance Coldsnow and her nurse, Aurelia Moran, with their mystic operation on heart tissue. We often listen to our radar-controlled radio on our excursions. We were shocked to hear that a supersonic plane, piloted by Lewis Hendricks, crashed near the South Pole. Among the missing are: famous missionary, Pat Manley, Professor Jean Williams, Troop entertainer, Sherry Dunlap, and lady wrestler, Janet McKelvey. Stewardess Marvel Lanius signaled for help and saved the passengers. Two other bulletins that caught our attention that same night were that trainer, Elaine Miller an- nounced that Jane Williams will swim the Pacific Ocean, and Marilyn Summers was chosen Mother of the Year. We were in Columbus at the time of the destruc- tion of the State Old People's Home by fire. The head, Loralee Wilkins could give no explanation for the 565,000 loss. While we were there, the papers were full of items of interest on the state level. The Secretary of State, Jim Altaffer, and his speech writer, Lois Cummins, attended the Big Four Meeting recently. The very famous actor, Lawrence Wis- man and his leading lady, Mary Custer, are vacationing on Neptune and the nation-wide pie baking contest was won by Gloria Traxler. On our last furlough home, we were very surprised to hear of Frank Dietsch, the editor of the "Daily Planet", exposing a famous drug ring. His chief reporter, Dennis Banks was credited with the revealing photos. The liter- ary editor, Carol Yarger, gave some very interesting facts about the new Broadway play that is such a rage. The owner of the Ladies-To-Wear Store, Mike Page, his pri- vate secretary, Mary Zeiter, and his model, Pat Majean, recently attended the State Clothes Convention. We read in the paper where Gerald Harrington, Dean of Mont- pelier Reformatory, Fred Strobel, local Veterinarian, and Caryl Brandon were called to a special council meet- ing by Mayor Duane Sumner to discuss the coming visit of the Foreign Ambassador, a member of the Foreign Legion, Jack Brillhart. At a local dress style show, de- signs by Wayne Henry were shown. His head seamstress, Nancy Clark, did all the fine showing. The "Vapor-Trail", newest rage in hair styles, was introduced by Janice Faunce. Donald Baker is reported to be doing a boom- ing business in the weather announcing field, with Dave Geren as his chief rain-maker. There goes the signal for "lights-out", so l guess we'd better go back to our barracks. Marcia and l think that our old classmates have accomplished some inter- esting achievements since l954. What do you think? Sincerely yours, Carolyn Shannon Marcia Zulch enior 'lfll We the senior class of l954, having lost our minds and wasted our bodies with four long years of unceas- ing toil, and being about to deport from this life at MHS do will and bequeath the following items which comprise all that we have gained from our endless nights of burning gallons of midnight oil.
