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 of manhood. 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. - '- T5S9,.g'? We wish to thank Mr. Daugherty for his ad- vice and interest in our class. I To Thee, Nelsonville High School, we pledge ourselves in loyalty and endeavor. In thy halls may we daily learn to grow in knowledge and in wisdom. May we be true to thy standards, seeking to build well the foundations of our education through the opportunities afforded us within thy gates.

Page Sixteen The Saga 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 year. 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. 1 t 1953 ,git ' Page Seventeen 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 properties as follows: To the class of Nineteen-hundred and Fifty- four, we leave our room 304, and the musical bobbi pins, and those thumb tacks which we had the pleasure of sitting on during our course. ALMA JO ANDERSON leaves and is taking her diamond ring with her in hopes that she will add another ring to her finger soon. JERRY REYNOLDS leaves his ability to soothe and bluff the teachers to some poor fel- low like Terry Lee who is always in hot water. BETH GRAY Wills her solo chair tn Shirley Byers, and hopes that Shirley will get along as well as Beth did without practicing. Beth is tak- ing Gene with her much to the disappointment of some. LILLIAN LETHRIDGE leaves her many love letters and addresses to anyone who will buy his own stationery and keep up the good work. She also leaves her art ability to anyone with an im- agination as "Ducky" had. CHARLES DAVIS leaves his high. records and studious abilities to Cash Dexter in hores that Cash will attain as high records as Charles did. SUE CAVOTE wills her pleasant Ways to Rosalie Hartley if Rosalie promises to make good use of them.

They also leave their desire -to go to Carbon Hill to anyone who is as fond of Carbon Hill as these boys were. . MAUREEN KELLEY leaves her cheer-lead- ing position to Denise, but she refuses to leave her voice because she needs all she has left, We hope Denise is as successful as "Monn1e" has been. SHIRLEY MENDER AND LEETA TAYLOR leave their quiet ways to Margie Altier or anyone 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 large enough to hold them. PATTY RAYBOULD ewills her short hair style to Mary Johnston or Tobv Auflick if they promise to cut their hair and keep it looking as nice as Patty has. BONNIE McCOLLUM leaves her Drum Ma- 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. Page Eighteen MARTHA PARSONS leaves the position of Saga Editor to any Junior who has enough pa- tience. You really need it-just ask Martha! PS. Martha is taking her husband with her, GENE PRITCHARD will leave his position as "end" on the football team to Charles Butter- worth but only if Charles will promise to eat his Wheaties. VIOLET WOODY leaves her scientific pow- ers to next year's Chemistry class if they prom- ise not to blow the place up. JUDY WINDLE leaves her hoarse cough to anyone who can disturb the teachers as much as Judy did and still remain in class. CAROL McCOLLUM, LOUISE McGUIRE AND LOIS BLACKFORD leave their jobs at the hospital to anyone who can wash dishes as well is 'tlhey can and still have those ivory-white an s. BOB BUSH, 'BOB JACKSON, AND BOB HENSHAW leave their "President Jobs" to anv- one who can fill the job as well as our three Bobs did. DANNY CAMPBELL AND DICK BOND will their "erasers" in the Senior Home Room to any two boys who can throw them as accurately as they did. JEAN HILT, SHIRLEY WINDLE, AND JUDY HENSHAW leave their ability to skip school to any three girls who have the nerve to try it.

JOY BRYSON leaves to keep house for her one and only. A JOE DAVIS leaves--much to the relief of the teachers and some students, LARRY FLOWERS wills his "golden locks" to Mark Shelton, but Mark will have to bleach his hair, NANCY SHAW leaves her deep voice to any one who can master it as Nancy has done. RALPH KEPLAR leaves his position as man- ager of the football team to anyone who can af- fect the team as Ralph has done. PEGGY COOK leaves her laughing ability 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. The End The Saga 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 be boys. 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- tite. 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? K 1953 Page N meteen 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. Nancy Shaw, 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 P , 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, Hi. 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 miss everyone. e'll surely Page Twenty The Saga CLASS PRoPHEcY 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- ing here. 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- tion. 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- ers. 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 is a director in Hollywood now. He received much 1953 experience from directing the Senior Class Play. Gosh! There's Judy Henshaw. You've prob- ably read her recent tragedy story entitled "I Paid the Penalty for Skipping." Over there crowded into one side of a booth I see Kay Dearth, and Carol McCollum. Kay is a caomedian and Carol is her C. C. CCrowd Call- er. ' Sitting next -to them is Louise McGuire and Lois Blackford, better known as Mt. St. Mary's Hospital -dieticians, They are sampling the many fisli -dishes here today. Looking for a new recipe g1r s. That man standing there is Jerry Figgins. He is now Manager of the Individual Basketball League in Nelsonville. . Just walking by is Jean Hilt and Shirley Windle, They are now secretaries to the Presi- dent and Vice President of the United States. 1 Well! There's the great Hollywood star, Judy Windle. She became famous by doing the horse cough for Black Beauty's double. Leeta Taylor and Shirley Mender are with us today. Those girls were always partners in everything. They now own a clothing store and they will Mend-er--Taylor to fit. That smartly dressed girl over there is Alma Anderson. She is an income tax collector. We are all wondering if she came along to collect taxes or dues. Admiring the painting just made of our class bv the great artist Lillian Lethridge is Frank Whitmore. He is a lawyer. We always thought his ability to argue his way out of things would lead to something, Remember Jo Ann Mallin and Patty Ray- bould? These girls are now beautiful Navy Nurses. They say they volunteered merely to help the sick but I somehow doubt this. Joy McKinney is present today also. Re- member how good she was in Bookkeeping? She is now Treasurer for the United States. Violet Woodv is running around interview- ing everyone today. Probably trying to prophesy the next twenty years. Principle speakers at the banquet this even- ing are Maureen Kelley and Bob Jackson. Both are graduates of O. U. Bob has his MD Degree. Maureen has her Mrs. Degree, ' Sue Cavote, famous Soprano, will close the program by singing the song "At the End of a Perfect Day." Very appropriate Sue. It Well Class, we are reallv being rushed for time, so we'll bid everyone a fond farewell, and express our hope of meeting asain in the state of old age.

Hilt Windle Bonnie McCollum The year of 1952-53 has been a very successful one for the N. H. S. Band. Under the faithful leadership of Mr. James Gilbert the band has shown much improvement from its first appearance of the season. The band man- euvered through a successful marching season disnlayinff fine shows at all of the Foot- ball games at home fand away. ,J One of the highlights of-.kthe year was the Parade of the Hills. The fact that Drum Major, Bonnie McCollum, was Hocking Valley Queen made this seem more important. Other marching highlights were the Band Day at OU and the Christmas Parade at Lo- gan. On January 29 the Band Boosters entertained the members of the band and Mr. Gilbert at the annual band banquet. The dinner was held at the Methodist Church with a dance following at the Elks Hall. Five seniors received senior medals and ten mem- bers received their four-year awards, Following the banquet the band' got down to work for the annual spring concert which was given April 24. This was well received and said to be one of the best yet. A new highlight of the Year was the combined High School Choir and Band Con- cert. This was held May 8. May 3' the band participated in the Sesqui-Centennial Pa- rade at Chillicothe Veterans Hospital. Winding up the year the Band played at Baccalaureate and Commencement Exercis- es. The five seniors graduating are Beth Gray, saxophone: Joe Davis, Percussiong Bob Henshaw, Tympanig Jean Hilt, Alto-clarinet and Hag bearerg Shirley Windle, Bass- clarinet and flag bearerg Bon- nie McCollum, Drum Major.

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 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 this game. 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 season. t 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. 95 Page Fifty one v E . .

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 coach. Page Fifty-four .

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.
