L. H. S. Many of the students were new, but we soon became acquainted and began to work to- gether as a class. Even those who had spent their iunior high school years at N. L. l'l. S. , realized that senior high school was new to them also. Thus we began our high school career. Our officers were: President, Don Anderson, Vice-president, Shirley Blanton, Secretary, Hattie Elkirs, Treasurer, Bill Dalrymple. Several of the boys played on the football, basketball and baseball teams. Our class also participated in band, glee club, and publication of the school newspaper. As the Homecoming Queen's attendant, we chose Mona Dickerson. The Student Councilmembers were Jane Shumaker, Emma Lou Johnson, and Gary Camp. At the close of our freshman year, we came to the conclu- sion that, in spite of the mistakes we had made, we liked this new and different school life. Our sophomore year began with the largest class in the school, having ninety-four members. The leaders of the class this year were: President, Dick Bennett, Vice-president, Nancy Chappelear, Secretary, George Haynes, Treasurer, Emma l-ou Johnson. Again we were active in sports, band, glee club, and newspaper work. The Student Council members were Gary Camp, Nancy Clark, Donna Holt, Don Hutchinson, Jane Shumaker and Bob Strawn. The class enthusiastically began its money- making proiects. Our Queen's attendant was Donna Holt. Ps our second year of high school ended, we were a little wiser and ready to begin a third year. Then, before we knew it, our junior year had arrived. The class now numbered eighty-three. To lead our clcss for this eventful year were: President, David Evans, Vice-president, Bob Strawn, Secre- 23 tary, Donna Holt, Treasurer, Nancy Chappelear. Student Council members were Jane Shumaker, Bill Dalrymple, and Dave Evans. The Queen's attendant was Nancy Chappelear. This year was to be no exception, and, therefore, we participated in the many extracurricular activities of our school. We uncovered hidden talent and presented a fine class play, "Dimples". ln March, four girls were named to the National Honor Society. Receiving this honor were Anna Mae Hardy, Hattie Elkins, Paula Hynus and Nancy Chappelear. After weeks of hard work and with the capable help of our class advisors, Ms. Folden and Mr. Neff, we produced an unforgettable Prom and Banquet. The theme was "Ohio's Sesqui-centennial ". 1954--Our senior year came before we were completely recovered from our hectic iunior year. Again we lost a few members and our class numbered seventy-four. To lead our class once more were: President, Dave Evans, Vice-president, Bob Strawn, Secretary, Nancy Chappelear, Treasurer, Donna Holt. Vik set to work with a class trip and a school annual in mind. But deep inside everyone's thoughts was concern for the future. What will our future be? College, nurses' training, service in the anned forces, secretarial work, or one of the many other fields? We were aware that our lives were just beginning. This year our football tecxn went all the way to be M.V.l-. co-champs. The co-captains were Don Hutchinson and George Hill. Our Homecoming Queenwas Nancy Chappelear with Emma Lou Johnson her senior attendant. Our Homecoming Dance and class play were two main events of the year. Now that our high school career must end, we think of the past. lt is sad to leave our school and our friends, but we leave happily and ambitious ly with a definite goal in our minds. ---Nancy Chappelear--- 24 Last Will and Testament We, the Seniors of New Lexington High School, Class of l954, being of well-educated mind and remarkable memory, hereby ordain and establish our last will and testament.

He attended a small country school near New Lexington for awhile, but, at an early age, wcs obliged to go to work. For twenty years he worked at the Star Manufacturing Company and became foundry foreman for an additional sixteen years. Leaving the foundry position, he became a mine foreman for the next ten years. ln 1950, Mr. Diller ccme to New Lexington High School to become its caretaker, and, from that time, has won the respect of the faculty and the students alike. Mr. C. R. Ridenour was born in Bowling Green, Licking County, Ohio. He attended grade school and high school at Glenford and is a graduate of Ohio University. Mr. Ridenour taught for sixteen years at Cadiz, Ohio. Seven years were spent teaching in rural schools, four years as Principal and five years as Superintendent of Schools. ln 1921, he gave up teaching and came to New Lexington to ioin his father in the grocery business. Mr. Ridenour has been clerk of the Board of Education for thirty-two years and has given, during that time, faultless service to the people and the schools of New Lexington. 44 if 1 Football The Panthers of New Lexington High School shared the Muskingum Valley League football title with the Philo Electrics. The Panthers started the season with a bang by winning four straight games before being stopped by bbw Concord, a team that wins games that they are sometimes not expected to win. Our team stopped to find out what happened to put them in second place in the M. V. L. , and then roared back into the win column by downing a tough Dresden team. Finally, they got their chance to get to the top of the league when they played Philo who was leading the pack, After forty-eightbruising minutes, Philo was the victor. Things were bad for the team for a week until they beat Glouster, and Roseville, the black horse team, upset Philo. That put New Lexington, Philo, and Crooksville in a three-way tie for the first place. Philo won a game in the middle of the week, and, in the final game between New Lexington and Crooksville, New Lexington won. This divided the football championship be- tween Philo and New Lexington. Football Honors: George Hill was chosen for both the defensive and offensive first teams of the mythical M.V.L. eleven. He was also invited to play in the T954 North-South All Star game at Springfield. He is the first to be chosen for this honor from the Muskingum Valley League. Bill Dalrymple was named defensive end on the M. V. L. first team. George Haynes placed as defensive guard on the first team, M.
