TI-IE SENIOR CLASS
We, the Seniors of the class of 1953, dedicate our
Saga to all past and future service men of N. H. S.
Many of these boys will be exposed to grave
dangers and compelled to accept the responsibilities
of adult life before they even attain their legal status
Though some of these boys are buried beneath
home soils, some will not return, but the memories of
those who will--not return will linger forever in the
Y hearts of those who knew them.
We are proud to dedicate this book to those boys
who are represented in all branches of thei service-
on the sea, on the land, and in the air.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In 1949-50 Nelsonville High School
opened its doors to a group of seventy-four be-
wildered freshmen. During that year the proud
young officers of our class were: President, Bob
Henshaw, Vice President Kay Dearth, and the
post of Secretary and Treasurer- was filled by
Bob Bush. In that year our present well-known
choir was begun. We are proud to say that some
of the present choir members have been members
of the organization ever since that happy year.
May the coming classes be as proud and partici-
pate as fully in the choir as our class has done.
When we, sixty-three in number, entered
our Sophomore year, some of our bewilderment
had left us, and as anv class will truthfully say,
we thought we were ,f'IT". Theiofficer staff of our
class that year wasf a very capable one. Bob
Jackson was our president and Jo Ann Mallin
was vice president while Violet Woody served
as Secretary-Treasurer."during our Sophomore
Upon entering the Junior year, there were
only forty-five of us' left. We reelected some of
our old officers that year. The President was Bob
Jackson with John Wiseman in the post of Vice
President, By this time our treasury was begin-
ning to be important, so Violet Woody was elect-
ed Treasurer and Judy Henshaw as Secretary. .
By this time it seemed we would never be
Seniors. We hoped and planned for that day
when we would be proud Seniors of Nelsonville
High School. When this day came, we entered it
proudly, but there was only forty of us left.
Somewhere along the way we had lost thirty-
four of our friends and fellow students.
We held our last election to elect our class
officers. Our honorable officers for the year of
1952-53: Bob Henshaw, again President with Bob
Jackson as Vice President. Kay Dearth was again
eleetedi but this time into the office of Secretary
with Lillian Lethridge as Treasurer.
The day has arrived when we must leave N.
H. S. Several years ago if one had asked us if
we wished to be out of school, almost everyone
would have said, t'Yes". But now that the time
for graduation grows near, the same question
would get a negative answer. Now we must take
our places in the World. '
We move on and leave room for those who
will follow us in pursuit of their education. We
leave behind many pleasant memories and eager-
ly look to the future with hope in our hearts.
E IOR CLASS WILL
We, the graduating class of Nineteen-hundred
and fifty-three, do hereby will the forthcoming
generations of students all personal or public

soothe and bluff the teachers to some poor fel-
low like Terry Lee who is always in hot water.

ing Gene with her much to the disappointment

ing position to Denise, but she refuses to leave
her voice because she needs all she has left, We

SHIRLEY MENDER AND LEETA TAYLOR

who is as as quiet as these two girls have been.
FRANK WHITMORE leaves his love lives to
the N. H. S, trophy case because he has no place

style to Mary Johnston or Tobv Auflick if they

nice as Patty has.

jorette uniform to Joan Whyte, and we hope Joan
will do as well as Bonnie has done.
KAY DEARTH leaves old N. H. S. with an
uncertain future, The question is, T0 be Mrs., or
not to be.

to anyone who finds it impossible to control him-
self as Peg did.
JO ANN MALLIN leaves her quiet way to
Beverly Whyte and Ruth Beal who may need it.
SCHOOL LIFE AT N. H. S.
Five days a week children between the ages of six and seventeen are re-
quired to attend school. One usually gets up in the morning, in the winter it is still
dark, in the summer the birds are singingg washes, dresses, and eats breakfast.
Around eight o'clock they are rushed off to school with the farewell bidding
of "You had better be good or I will tell your father on you" or with the loving
phrase "Goodby" and "What a relief" in mind.
At 8:20 you are required to enter through the portals of old NHS to your
home rooms where you discuss last nights date. A phrase commonly heard here is
"I don't have my lesson. Do you?" Well, the day continues on. Now we are off to
first period class.
Students go everywhere, and I assure you that the boys do not carry the
girls' books or, as a matter of fact even let them out the door first, BUT, boys will
Following first period class comes the push through .the halls in an effort
to reach your second period class withoutbeing tardy. This class is struggled
through and the fight -to get to third period class is on. Here you just get settled
down when you decide you are hungry. The period seems weeks long but you live
through it. .Q
Some students then go to the lunch room where you may stand in line
anywhere from one minute to thirty. Oh. You jus-t work up a good healthy appe-
After lunch hour it is back to the home rooms where your friends tells you
she just heard this or just saw that and the day is a total ruin. But, off we go to
fourth period class. Fifth period is struggled through and sixth period is just about
over. The PA system comes on and you hear what has happened all day or what
will happen soon. Well the day has been successfully struggled through, much to
my relief. I didn't think we would make it. Did you?
Each day goes by in much the same way except Wednesdays and some-
times Fridays. Here after the struggle in the lunch room and discussions in the
home rooms, we have an activity period. This is the period during which you
don't have to worry about your lessons and no one knows where anyone else is.
But, is a school day like this in the minds of all the students and the par-
ents? No, not exactly. Each day we learn something whether we try real hard or
not. Maybe we dontt want to learn but we do. Some absorb more than others but
we all have a different life to live. The whole idea of a public school is that every-
one has the opportunity to learn. In twelve, or thirteen years, we must learn enough
to carry many of us throughout the rest of our lives.
Each of us should ask ourselves, "Do I have the time .to sit and daydream
or should I attempt to learn something?" Only you can answer this question. What
will your answer be?

L SE IOR CLASS POE
When we, Henshaw, Woody, Lethridge, and
Mallin were told to write the poem, by gosh, we
thought we'd die! We worked and slaved, strained
and sweat, till we were fit to tie!
For weeks and weeks we rambled on, we al-
most blew a gasket. But all our efforts seemed to
end up in editor Newton's waste basket!
But alas, here it is dear reader, be ready for
the worst. Be prepared for lesson number one,
in how not to write a verse.
Alma Jo Anderson, her goal will reach,
Of making a wife for her dear "Peach."
Gene Pritchard just cannot stay away
From his lovely blond, Beth Gray.
Sue Cavote, a dark haired lass,
Was one of the beauties of our class.
Bonnie McCollum, the prettiest seen,
Will be remembered as "Hocking Valley Queen."
Jean Hilt and Shirley Windle, marchers supreme,
In front of our band, were always seen.
Ralph "Turtle" Keplar, always on the beam,
Was manager of our football team.
Joe Davis an unfortunate boy,
In English class would always annoy.
Patty Raybould a nurse someday,
Will be the finest in the U. S. A.
Louise McGuire with her curls so fine
Oh, how I wish that they were mine.
Peggy Cook was always a riot,
Never, never could she be quiet.
Frank Whitmore, who always drives a car,
Because those feet of his won't carry him far.
Good things come in bundles small,
Shirley Tyo pleases all.
Max Pitts, an awfully quiet guv,
Can you explain the reason why?
Jack Lewis comes to school,
But never 5 days is his regular rule.
Kay Dearth can really roll her eyes,
If there were a contest, she'd win the prize.
Maureen Kelley has a lively step,
On Friday nights is full of pep.
Judy Windle, who really passed,
Always feared Mr. Wolf's class.
Lois Blackford is her name,
As a secretary will gain her fame.
When it was time to skate,
Bob Jackson was never late.
To graduate with us this year.
we're glad you're here,
Carol McCollum would always fight
For what she thought was her right.
Martha Parsons, who was our editon,
For her we could find no competitor.
Bob Bush is very slow,
But next year will be a GI Joe,
Jerry Reynolds preached far and wide,
For he wanted things on the nicer side.
Dick Bond, a boy who would never date,
Decided that he would leave it all up to fate.
Larry Flowers with his hair so blond,
For which a Junior girl was very fond.
If in the Sohio you would ramble,
The boy to serve you is our Danny Campbell.
Joy Bryson a cute little s ouse
Was busy going to school and keeping house.
Our President, Bob Henshaw would never rest,
Until for our class he did his very best.
Shirley Mender-Leeta Taylor quiet and shy,
Are two of the sweetest in Nelsonville
.Terry Figgins a handsome lad,
To the Freshman girls he didn't look bad.
Charles Davis, a quiet boy,
In English Class felt little joy.
Jim Stimel, the best you'll find,
Usually had baseball on his mind.
Farewell to all underclassmen, Our school work
now is done.
And, although we hate to admit it. W
Page Twenty The Saga
On this the 28th day of May 1973, the Class
of 53 IS gathering for their 20th Class reunion. We
have all gathered on the shore of the Hocking
River where we will bo-ard a submarine that will
take us down stream to New Orleans. At this
point we are to pick up the famed saxophone
soloist Beth Gray,
From here we are proud to announce that We
are going to the bottom of the ocean. We have
picked this spot because Pullet Henshaw, a fam-
ous deep-sea diver, recently discovered the lost
Paradise of "Oh! Happy Day!" He got the name
from the song that Larry Flowers made famous
at old N. H. S. years ago in an assembly. Larry
is now a great Jazz Singer. -
The skipper of our ship is Dick Bond who
has had many years of experience since gradua-
ating. The stewardess is Martha Parsons, We al-
ways knew her ability to manage things would
lead to something.
As we descend nearer to our destination We
hear a giggle of excitement from Peggy Cook.
Her voice is in as good shape as ever,
Well Class, we've made it and as the ship
floats into the submarine Terminal one can see
the lights of the Reynolds Borrowing Corpora-
tion. Jerry came to "Oh! Happy Day!" penny-
less, but, we understand his business is flourish-
As we step from the ship we would like to
give a slight description of the City. At one end
there is an air station. This supplies all tourists
with oxygen. The plant is managed by Danny
Campbell, who named it the So-lo-o Service Sta-
Across the street is one of Ralph Keplar's
many Pool Rooms, He got his start at J etty's.
Oh! Just look over there at that beautiful
empty lot. Gene Pritchard thinks it would be an
ideal spot for one of his Kroger Chain Stores.
My! But this town is decked up for us, They
even erected an amusement park. Let's look
around us and see who's here today.
Indulging in the sport of whale back riding
is Jack Lewis, Jim Stimel, Charles Davis, and
Max Pitts. This is a new line of sports for them
since they are really professional baseball play-
Bonnie McCollum who was our majorette is
now a designer of majorette uniforms. She can
do a lot for them too.
My! My! There's Joe Davis. I hear he is very
busy these days advertising Ipana Tooth Paste.
You remember Shirley Tyo and Nancy Shaw.
Well! They are secretaries back at N. H, S. Prin-
cipal duties are dusting and filling water jug.
The man in the blue suit is Bob Bush. He

The Nelsonville Basketball Team opened their 1952-53 season with a lot
of height and spirit, but little experience. One thing that hurt them was the ques-
tion, could they live up to last year's team. Lowell Cole and his Cagers opened the
season with a win over Holy Trinity, one of the teams who defeated last year's
team. The score of this game was 58 to 50.
The Hounds dropped the next two games to Jackson and Gallipolis, by
close scores. Bob Pack was high man in these games, Nelsonville bounced back
to defeat Logan 60 to 56,
After Christmas vacation the Gr?yhounds lost on two successive nights by
very close scores. Again it was Bob Pack high man with 30 points one night and
15 the next. -
Nelsonville lost the.next two games. These losses were to Athens, and
Middleport by very close scores. The Greyhounds, playing ball like they could
have done-all season, defeated Wellston 68-35. It was a well balanced team that won
The following game Nelsonville lost to a taller New Lexington team.
The Hounds, playing a good game, but not quite good enough, were defeated by
Gallipolis. I 5 '
Going to Logan the following week, the Greyhounds lost in an overtime.
Pomeroy playing better ball than the first time they played the Hounds,
defeated the Hounds ina well played game. Nelsonville couldn't seem to get going
and dropped the next two games to Athens and Middleport. The Middleport game
was a very exciting gamefNe1sonvil1e played this game better than any other all
Nelsonville dumped Wellston farther into the cellar. This game was lop-
sided all the way. Wellston scored only two baskets the first half.
Though bNelsoiiville's win and loss column was not very good, they profited
from this season. Coach Cole also profited from this season. All in all, the basketball
team gained 'valuable needed experience.

JUNIOR HIGH, FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL
The Junior High sports program was very successful this year. The foot-
ball team had a very good record, They lost two games. These were to The Plains
and Mechanicsburg, The Junior High team was well balanced and will provide the
varsity with some good players. The reason for the Junior High team's success was
due to the fact that they had the spirit and desire to play.
The' basketball team was very successful also. The team had a very good
record. fhey lost very few games. The team was divided into two teams. These
were 7th and 8th on one team and 9th on the other. These boys gained experience
that will help them when they get on the high school team.
Gene Hughes was the basketball coach and Lowell Cole was the football

P Under the direction of their new coach, Jim Chenevy, the Nelsonville
High Football Team started the 1952 season with the prospects of a good season.
The Greyhounds lost their first game with Chauncey-Dover by the score of 51 to
13 but bounced back the following Friday to tie The Plains, 6 to 6. Gene Pritchard
scored Ne1sonville's lone touchdown,
Nelsonville opened the league with Wellston. The Hounds playing great
football, defeated Wellston for their only win of the season with a score of 12 to 7.
CThe entire team played bett-er football in that game than in any other game of the
season.J Nelsonville was thumped by Middleport 48 to 0 the following Friday. The
Greyhounds came back next week to play Jackson on even terms for two quarters
but their fighting spirit had died away and they were defeated 19 to 6. Nelsonville
just couldn't seem to play ball the rest of the season. Gallipolis won the next
game by a 34 to 0 score. .
The following week Nelsonville ventured to Athens to play their county
rival. With good team spirit in this game, the Hounds played good ball for three
quarters, but they were defeated 19 to 6. This game produced the last touchdown
for the Hounds for the rest of the season, A fighting team from Pomeroy came to
Nelsonville the following week to hand the Greyhounds a 33 to 0 defeat, the next
week ended at Logan with a loss of 72 to 0. .
The Seniors on the Greyhound squad were: Larry Flowers, Darrow Tolli-
ver, Bob Henshaw, Gene Pritchard, Frank Whitmore, and Jerry Reynolds. We wish
better success to next year's football squad.

Free Enterprise and the Electric lndustry
In recent years a belief has developed in some quarters
that if there is a big job to do, "Only government can do
it." And yet, even While this belief has been growing,
America's business-managed electric Companies have
been building new facilities at a record rate, actually
more than doubling their production of electricity since
the end of the War. They'vGV'dQ1e it Without subsidies,
delays or added expense to taxpayeres, too! Which would
indicate that "Free-Enterprisen isn't just a high sound-
ing phrase, but.a mighty fine Way of getting jobs done,
including big ones. , Q 1.
