In the years that have passed since we first began our educations, many
sacrifices have been made for our benefits. and many a helping hand has
been given as we stumbled along. Ii it were not for these aids. many or
all of us would not be graduating this year. Of course, some of us did
not seem to appreciate those who helped us, butwe are beginning to re-
alize. and no doubt will more so as we grow older. that everything was
done for our own good. Therefore. to partially show our appreciation.
we gratefully dedicate this Volume of the Reflector to our parents.
teachers, and friends who have given us so much help and understanding
all through our school life.

Prophecy For The Class of 1950
May 20. 1950
I have just returned from a long trip which has taken me into many parts of the
world. 1 have seen many strange and mysterious things. Among the sights, 1 ran into
every member of the good ol' Class of l95O. Ten years ago, we graduated from Nevada
High School, and since then each and every one of the class has made his mark in the
The first one I bumped into was Marie Adams. Marie has just received the Nobel
Peace Prize for her brilliant work in chemistry.
I found Dorothy Armbruster in England. gathering material for her new book.
Dorothy has become one of America's immortal novelists. Many of her books have
been made into movies.
While in Chicago, l saw Marjorie Bardon. She had just won the National Baking
Contest there with one of her fine pies. The recipe is top secret.
ln New York City, 1 attended a concert at the Met and found none other than the
now famous Dolores Fletcher singing there.
In the same city, I found Ted Frost also singing at the Met. He is acclaimed by
critics as the greatest "find" since Caruso.
New York seems to be the favorite spot of the Class of '50. I attended a concert
at Carnegie Hall given by one of the greatest pianists of all times--Carol Kuenzli.
While in the South, I attended a party at the magnificent mansion of Donald Logan.
Donald is the owner and operator of Logan Sugar Plantations and Refining Companies.
He is also a great favorite among the southern belles.
l happened to pick up the New York Times newspaper, and noticed a picture of
LeRoy jacobs on the front. LeRoy is captain of the New York Police Force and is
internationally known for his work in "busting" crime rings.
Alvin Markley is the most popular interior decorator in Hollywood. l-le has
furnished the homes of many famous people. ln addition, he ownes a huge furniture
store and a factory. "Very brilliant" is the way the stars describe him!
At john Hopkins Hospital, I found Dr. Marjorie Matthews. She is one of the most
famous surgeons and scientists of our time. She has recently been acclaimed for the
discovery of a drug which cures acute cases of hiccups.
ln Paris, l found a swank beauty salon owned and operated by Mary McClain. She
is known the world over for her chic hair-dos.
Back in Nevada. Ohio, I found Rosemary Monroe. She is one of the best elemen-
tary teachers Nevada has ever had. Her students are the smartest in school.
1 might mention that while I was in Paris, Marlene Rarick was also there. She is a
great fashion authority. Her latest creations are to be unveiled at the next Paris showing
While listening to the radio one night, I heard this report about Kathryn Rhoden:
Miss Rhoden is a great comedian. She is threatening to overthrow Bob Hope, who has
held the top spot for many years. At the time, Kathryn was on tour in South America.
I met her there in Buenos Aires. She really is very funny--just as I remember her in
l came upon Vernon Spiegel in the Philippines. He is now a high naval officer--
commander of a large fleet. He is one of the more brilliant militarists of the day.
Back in San Francisco. I met Nancy Walter. She has won great fame as the model
who poses for ads for hair products. Her gorgeous blonde hair is said to be the love-
liest in America.
So you see, dear diary. I was right when, ten years ago, I said that the Class of 1950
would not be forgotten. I'm very tired from my long trip, so good-night.
We began the first act of our high school careers in 1946 as wide-eyed and mis-
chievous Freshies. Carol Kuenzli, Rosemary Monroe, Marjorie Matthews, and Dorothy
Armbruster were our leading players. Of course, the highlights of this act was the
Senior Reception for the Freshies--initiation. Also, in this act we chose teal and white
as our colors and the red carnation as our flower. We decided that the class motto would
be, "Today We Follow. Tomorrow We Lead. " We also sold pencils and hats to earn
The second act found us as Sophomores with the leads being played by Alvin Markley,
Vernon Spiegel, Marie Adams, and john Morris.
The third act found us becoming more important and very busy. Carol Kuenzli.
Dorothy Armbruster. Marjorie Matthews, and Marie Adams managed the show. During
this act. some of the scenes were: our class play, "The Girl With Two Faces," in
December, selling refreshments at the games, giving a dance. and holding a gala banquet
at the Shawhan Hotel in Tiffin.
The fourth, and final act of the play started in September of 1949 when we had reach-
ed the stage as all-important Seniors. Dorothy Armbruster, Alvin Markley, Marjorie
Mathews, and Rosemary Monroe got the leading parts this year. We sponsored a social
during summer vacation. The social whirl of this act consisted of two parties--Halloween
and Christmas. We also elected an annual staff, and began the hard work of making an
annual,,selling the books, and selling advertisements. Another of the highlights of this
act was having our pictures taken at Fostoria, Ohio.
Before the play closes, we shall give a three-act play. We shall be banqueted by the
juniors, and shall take part in the May Day exercises. After this will come the grand
finale--Baccalaureate and Commencement.
From this four-act play put on by the Senior Company, we hope you have learned to do
your best in school and out, and to live your lives to the richest and fullest. Then after
the grand finale there will be no regrets, only beautiful memories.
Remember to do your best now, for "Today We Follow--Tomorrow We Lead."

ln the fall of 1947. sixteen green and shaking Freshies stepped over the thres-
hold into high school. Each and everyone of us were chewing our fingernails and
waiting impatiently for the big event of the year, namely initiation. Our officers for
that year were: President--Ronald Klinkg Vice-President--Wayne England: Secretary
joyce Heinleng Treasurer--Donald McElhaney. Our advisor was Mrs. Main. We
chose as our class colors, royal blue and silver gray. Our class flower is the white

ln this, our junior year, twelve members chose the following officers:

happy juniors file slowly in and occupy twelve out of fifty seats in study hall, which
we use as our home room. We have been slaving very hard to make enough money to
have an outstanding junior-Senior Prom. Besides all this, we produced our class
play, "The Kid." a three act comedy.

In 1949-1950, contrary to all hopes, the basketball team didn't blossom forth with
many wins. Although our mighty five struggled hard at both home and other floors.
Dame Victory shunned our boys.
However, it is our hopes and intentions, that next year comes forth with an active
and vigorous team, who will bring Nevada High down the road to Victory.
The Seniors who will be lost by the squad are: Alvin Markley, Vernon Spiegel.
Ted Frost, and Leroy Jacobs.
This season was a fair one for the Reserves, having won 5 and lost 13. With this
outlook, we are sure to have a better team next year due to the experience these boys
have had this year.
Only one game was marked up for Nevada this year, even though all the boys tried
hard. Our pitcher, Ted Frost, will be lost by the team, and also Pete Spiegel, Leroy
Jacobs, Alvin Markley, and Donald Logan. However, there are many other capable
players who will play again next year and fight for "ole" Nevada High. Our luck is
Due to the fact that this 1949-1950 "Reflector" was written prior to the first of
March, some of the eventful occasions of Nevada High are omitted.

This delightful comedy is the play the junior Class gave on Marchl. 1950. Teddy Randall. the
colorful youth, who was turning the difficult corner called adolesence, was portrayed by john
Tschantz. Then there were Teddy's Mom and Dad--joAnn jury and Ronald Klink. Of course.
Teddy had a heart-throb. and a lovely, clever girl was Sue. who was played by joyce Heinlen.
There were two sisters. Laurie. lighthearted and gay, played by Irene Bachtell. and Mary.
serious and contemplating marriage, as was depicted by joyce Reed. Teddy's grandma, who
was played by Carol jacobs. intrigued us greatly. Then there was Herbert, Mary's fiance and
Dad's chief business competitor. who was depicted by Eddie Clevenger. And last, but far from
least was jack. Laurie's dashing heart-interest. portrayed by Bill Stover.
Our hats are Off to the juniors!
