Our class consisted of eight girls and eleven boys. During this year we gained a new member, Richard Shroyer, of Wapakoneta. High school life was more complex, but we quickly adjusted ourselves to this change. Sixteen of our members joined the chorus while seven were in the band. Our class was well represented in sports. Eight boys were in baseball and eight in basketball. We returned to school in the fall of 1952 as Sophomores, with a class of eight girls and thirteen boys. Our new members, Dale Klopfenstein, moving to our district from Botkins and Don Reilly came from Lima Shawnee during the summer. We had thirteen members in chorus and seven in the band. We had five boys in baseball and seven boys in basketball. Also two girls were chosen cheerleaders during the basketball season. During this year two of our mem- bers, james King and Richard Shroyer, found interests elsewhere, while Ronald Kuck dropped back at the end of the year. On September 2, 1953, we began our Junior year with seven girls and twelve boys, dropping Betty Parke during the summer when she moved to Peoria, Illinois. During this year we were all proud to receive our class rings. On October 23rd our class presented the play "Seventeenth Summer," which was a great success. On May 7th we presented the junior-Senior Reception in honor of the Seniors. Our class remained well represented in chorus, band, and sports during this year. One of our classmates, Janice Eversman, dropped out in the spring of our junior year. We, the Senior Class of 1955, entered our last year of high school edu- cation as dignified seniors on September 7, 1954. During the year we lost one member, Dale Klopfenstein, which gave us a total of sixteen members left in our class. We again took part in many of the activities as we had done during the first three years in high school. On the first of April, the Seniors presented "All American Family," a three-act comedy, which was a great success. We were the honored guests of the junior-Senior Reception, which was sponsored by the class of 1956. We will long remember and cherish the week of our graduation exercises. 16 IORS LEE CLAUSING Editor Chorus 1, 2, 3, 45 Basketball I, 2, 3, 45 Sec- retary-Treasurer of Class 15 Assistant Report- er of F.F.A. 15 Reporter of F.F.A. 25 Sen- tinel of F.F.A. 35 Secretary of F.F.A. 45 F.F.A. 1, 2, 3, 45 "Seventeenth Summer" 35 Editor of Memoir 45 Majors: English, Vocational Agriculture.

I've never seen some of my classmates since we returned from our class trip to New York City. As l think about these old-time friends of mine, curiosity about their present-day life over- whelms me. So I am going to visit each of them. Would you like to come along in my private helicopter to take a peek into their lives? First let's go back to good old New Knoxville. This little village has grown into a thriv- ing city, due partially to the conveyor belt which passes through town. The designer and fi- nancier of the belt is Mr. Dean Hoge. Conveyor belts are only a side-line with him, however. His main business is designing barn-shaped auditoriums and skyscrapers. Mr. Donald Heidt, a fa- mous name in the field of carpentry, is the head carpenter for all of Mr. Hoge's building projects. South of town is a dairy farm covering 320 acres. It is a famous spot in Ohio, for here was developed a breed of cows which produces eighteen gallons of milk a day. The owner of the farm? Mr. Wayne Bambouer. On another farm near New Knoxville live the famous -i- quintuplets who are now seventeen years old. Their mother Was the member of the class of '55 who was known as Marilee Settlage. New Knoxville is also famous for being the home of the "World-walkersn basketball team. It is owned and coached by Mr. Lee Clausing. New let's fly over the countryside to New York City. There, in New York City Hos- pital, a tense drama is taking place. Rows of white-faced nurses stand tensely outside of a door marked "surgery." It opens and the head nurse, Miss Ruth Warner, nods to the other nurses and says, "The operation was a success." Yes, Dr. Philip Skapura has performed another miraculous opera- tion. In his private office, the Doctor relaxes with a cup of coffee supplied by his competent sec- retary Miss Wanda Bambauer. Without her assistance, the Doctor could never stand the strain of the endlessness of his work. In another section of the city we find a huge building named "The Froning Institute of Art." The owner, Miss Joyce Froning, is famous, not only for her works of art, but also for her dress designs which are worn by all the up-to-date women in the world. In the suburbs of the city is a huge airport crowded with people. They are waiting to witness the blast off of the first space ship to fly to the moon. The captain of the crew is a brave man we know well. Will Mr. Paul Ott ever survive to come back to the Earth? After the space ship has disappeared, some of the people at the airport hurry to the Yan- kee Stadium. They are anxious to see the Yank's important outfielder and pinch-hitter, Mr. Don Reilly, as he plays in the last game of his career. Baseball critics are expecting him to take over the coaching job of the Yankees next year. Next, let's go across the ocean to Europe. There we will meet one of the United States' representatives to our world government, Mr. John Hole. Mr. Hole is one of the most valuable members of this organization. Whenever the atmosphere in the assembly room becomes filled with tension and bitter feelings, he can always think of a joke which makes the other members laugh, thus relieving the tension. On the way to Europe we meet another helicopter which circles ours as though to get our attention. Its driver must recognize us. Oh, of course! It is Miss Annett Aufderhaar. By communicating with her by means of our inter-helicopter phones, we learn that she is just re- turning from an extended tour of Asia and Europe. She will use the information she has gath- ered to write a book about world conditions. Back in the United States she is known as the dean of an Eastern university. As we arrive in Europe, we head toward the famous Clausing observatory in Switzerland. It is owned and operated by Mr. Larry Clausing. His many new astronomical discoveries have made Mr. Clausing a member of the Society of Important Scientists and Astronomers of the World fthe SISAWJ which has only twenty-one members. And now, let's go back to New York City. On the way we catch a glimpse of one of the new airjets which can cross the ocean in three hours. These airjets, which have completely revolutionized the field of aviation, are owned by Mr. Robert Deerhake. We are now back in New York City. I must hurry away, for I have an important en- gagement. You may come along to Carnegie Hall if you wish, for there I am to give my first really important piano recital. My name? Miss Nancy Haberkamp. 18 SENIORS ROBERT DEERHAKE Band 1, 2, 3, Chorus 1, Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4, F.F.A. 1, 3, 4, Assistant Sentinel of F.F.A. 45 Library 4, Memoir Staff 45 Majors: English, Vocational Agriculture.

I f' Q 1 9.14-55 Varsity Season The New Knoxville Rangers closed a successful basketball season, winning thirteen games and losing only six. The Rangers won their first three games, and then lost their fourth game to a stubborn Ft. Recovery quintet. They then defeated Cridersville. Their second and third losses were against a fast Delphos team and a tall St. Henry quintet. They then won seven out of their next eight games as New Bremen hand- ed them their fourth loss. During this time they defeated a strong, fast Mendon team, and a highly regarded Waynesfield quintet. They then lost their next two to a revengeful Cridersville team and a highly regarded Coldwater team. The Rangers then defeated a determined Minster quintet in an overtime game and finished the season by defeating Buckland. This ended the regular varsity season. League' Season The Rangers finished in a tie for second place in the Auglaize County League. They won their first league game by defeating Buckland. They then lost to New Bremen on the home court. Next the Rangers defeated Minster and the League champions, Waynes- field, which put them in a three-way tie for first place. But they lost their last league game to a very aggressive Cridersville quintet and therefore finished in a second place tie. 52 PLAYER Wayne Bambauer Larry Clausing Lee Clausing Robert Deerhake Dean Hoge Clark Froning Ronald Kuck Lee Schroer Nathan Stienecker Bill McCullough Willis Telljohann john Buddemeyer New Knoxville. .

The tall and more experienced Rangers defeated Minster by a 55-40 score although Minster stayed close to New Knoxville in the first half. The Rangers then played Cridersville who had drawn a bye. Again the Rangers' height helped them and they defeated Cridersville by a 55-34 score. The Rangers then met Waynesfield, the League Champion, in the champ- ionship game. The Rangers got off to a good start and at the end of the first quarter were leading 13-7. At half time they held only a two point margin. But by playing ball well, held their margin the second half and defeated Waynesfield by the score of 44 to 42. Northwestern llistrivl Ton rn ann-nl The New Knoxville Rangers drew Alger in the opening game of the Northwestern District Tournament. Alger was hot while the Rangers were cold and Alger led 37-ll at half time. Although the Rangers fought back des- perately during the last half they were unable to gain enough and lost by a 59-40 score.

Reserve Season The New Knoxville Reserve Team finished their season with a record of eleven victories and eight defeats. Four of their members dressed for the varsity squad. They lost only three out of their first thirteen games. Then when these members played only on the varsity they didn't seem to be able to find the right combination. But they finished the season with a good record, as most of the teams they played had larger boys. Five of their boys were Freshmen, and with the experience they earned they should be able to develop into good varsity players by their junior or Senior year. 1954-55 Reserve Season Knoxville 27 Anna ........
