This year a simple, but logical, theme has been chosen to guide you through the past school year at New London High. We hope that you will find it easy to follow the path of "natural sequence" in re- viewing the activities of the school year, I953-l954. So, as a last farewell from the seniors of l954, the events of the year will march through the pages of this book with the aid of our theme, "The Seasons". May this arrangement of material meet with your approv- al and may this yearbook remain an undying bond between you and your school days at New London High School.

DR H A ERLENBACH, Pres. ROBERT H. WENNER BOARD OF EDUCATION Behind the scenes of our school life works a group of Five citizens called the Board of Education. Little recognition is given them for their work of planning and carrying out the policies of the school. The many responsibilities of the Board of Education fall into four broad classifica- tions: policy formulatingg the approval functiong the evaluation of policies and prac- ticesg and the function of selecting the chief school officers. To name all the problems that confront a Board of Education would he impossible. It is to these people that the students of New London owe much of the 'success of their school days.

Our senior year has been very eventful and extremely memorable. One of our first activities was the night pep rally to inspire school spirit for the big Wellington football game. Included in the preparations was the making of a life-size dummy to represent Vlfellington. This dummy was escorted to the park by the band. A snake dance was held on the way out and also around the huge bonfire. Then the foo:- ball boys threw tlW6lliI1gtOH,, into the fire and the student body joyously left the park. As is the custom, wc prepared a throne and engaged an orchestra for the dance fol- lowing the Homecoming game. VVith the aid of the colored lights in the new auditorium, we had a very beautiful kingdom for the queen to rule over for one night. So, with the crowning of the queen, the seniors' last football season ended. The presentation of the annual senior play provided both us and the community with a great deal of laughter and tears. .. VV e sponsored record dances after some of the home basketball games, which afford- ed pleasure to many and money to our treasury. By the end of the year, we all felt like one big happy family. So, when we dis- covered that Mr. Sobers' birthday was on a school day, we secretly went to great lengths to surprise him. With a great deal of success with the surprise party, we enjoyed a noon of refreshments and merriment. Of course, the two big events in our lives were baccalaureate and commencement. When we marched down the aisle, we realized that we were stepping from the sheltered high school days to the out-side world to work in what we were best suited. The events of our senior year will remain in our memories as we look back to the wonderful high school days spent in New London I-ligh. Sponsored by Burk Farm Equipment W? ,glhvi U A ., .1 ? x .

LaDonna was born June 29, 1936, and died October 6, 1953, a victim of deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. LaDonna attended Fitchville Grade School and joined our class in the freshman year, 1950. She was well-liked because of her quiet, friendly manner. She joined two vocal music groups, the girls' glee club and the choir because she was fond of music. Helping with programs presented to the school to commemorate holidays was LaDonna's contribution through her membership in Today's Teens. LaDonna also entered into activities of the Future Homemakers of America. The class of 1954 mourns the loss ofa fellow classmate who will be missed by her many friends. CLASS HISTORY Once upon a time, twelve years ago, in fact, we wandered into Miss Hubbard's first grade room to behold the first steps in education. We mastered such arts as the alphabet and the addition and subtraction of numerical combinations, Soon we moved to the second grade room across the hall. Our guide here was Miss Cole. The new students this year were Dean Hansen and Virginia Ray. Mrs. Stentz entered our lives on the third rung of the ladder, and we welcomed Gloria Chase to our midst. The teachings of Miss Burke were appreciated in the fourth grade. Slowly, but sure- ly, we were advancing up that long ladder. Variety is the spice of life, and we found our variety in the many teachers we had in the fifth grade. Miss Upton, Mrs. Swearingen, Mrs. Scheid and Mrs. White took their turns at trying to teach us. Nathan Potts and Betty Showers became fellow members. Allen Keifer, Dale Morey, Marilyn Massie and Dale Luxon joined us as we rejoiced in the thought of being the oldest students in the building. Mrs. Wisler, Mrs. Gharst, and Mr. Chase taught us some more of the fundamental subjects. Having our classes in the high school building and greeting Dixie Hyatt into our class were new to us in the seventh grade. Our home room teacher was Mr. Rogers, who helped us enjoy our first night class parties. Miss Murphy was our adviser in the eighth grade. Here we experienced our first graduation. We turned from our grade school days to the exciting high school career. Fitehville, Hartland, and Clarksfield contributed Lucille Atkinson, George Benear, Gerald Case, Duane Davis, Irene Earl, Barbara Ellinwood, Fred Gibson, jim Kearney, Gordon Marett, LaDonna Moffit, Tom Nestor, Dorothy Ryan, Creighton Staschke, Don Everman and Carl Cawrse. Mr. Semilia took care of our many headaches in the fresh- man class. When we advanced to the sophomore home room, we had Mr. Schmidt as our ad- viser. Oron Wilcox and Betsy Western increased our enrollment. Everyone helped in the drive for scrap which helped boost our treasury. Our junior year was quite active and very nice. Vivian Conklin came to us by the addition of Rochester to the New London School District. We added to our treasury by working at football and basketball games. Among the social events of this year was our junior Thanksgiving dance. We worked diligently to prepare for the Junior-Senior Prom. VVe used the theme "Under the Sea," which turned the gymnasium into a very lovely "Under the Sea" atmosphere. Then we enjoyed working together to present "Cheaper by the Dozen". We had an exchange student from Germany with us our last year. We enjoyed having Erwin Scheder with us. Edgar Denger, Morris VVolfe, Mary Lou Garrison and Dick I-lines left in the grade school to resume their studies at Hartland and then joined us once again in their fresh- man vear. Ralph Westfall started with us, but left to join the Fitchville Grade School. I-Ie, too, came back later on in the school career. Those who have been together at New London all twelve years arc: Dan Bauer, Shari Dill, Marilyn Frank, jerry Franklin, 'lane Griffin, Roger Hamer, Phil Hopkins, Gerald King, Carolyn Ray, Bill Randleman, Clinton Randleman, Shirley Randlcman, Dale Springer, jr., Bob Weaver and Gaylord VVhite.

Officers fr Activities The 1953-54 school year got off to a good start for the juniors. During football sea- son they were given first choice of concessions and re- ceived fifty percent of the profit. Eleven ineinbers of the junior class were on the foot- ball, basketball, baseball and track teams. In late October, the class began planning for its float to be entered in the annual I-lalloweycn parade. Incident- ally, the float took first prize of ten dollars. Three of the four reserve cheerleaders were juniors. During basketball season, the class sold Wildcat pins and held record dances after two of the home games. On january 29th the jun- iors sponsored a round dance with Larry Hines' Orchestra furnishing the music. Included in the spring play cast were ten juniors. They had fun planning for their dances and other im- portant events of the school year, but the most fun was the Junior-Senior Prom for which they started making plans in the early spring. It was held in honor of the Se- niors at Oberlin Inn on May 15, 1954. All in all, the junior class had a very profitable year and is eagerly awaiting its senior year.

Everyone had a good time, although the class treasury seemed to benefit very little from all this. When sch ool resumed, they found themselves again with the largest class roll of any, 72 members. The first thing that entered their minds those first few weeks was football, in which there was an unusually large number of sophomore boys participating. "Gee, where has all the time gone?" was the question most of them were saying when they found those first few months had gone by so quickly. But they soon got back in the "swing of things" when they saw basketball and the various other activities rolling around. Again there was a large number of them out for basketball and other activities. Sponsoring a record dance after one of the games and being in charge of a few concessions during the year helped to boost a rather de- flated treasury. After basketball, the music department seemed to take ov- er with many sophomores par- ticipating in the contests. They also held a class party which turned out to be quite a success but nearly made Mr. VVilliams a nervous wreck! As the sophomore year drew to a close, they all seem- ed to realize more and more just how short their high school life was going to be and found themselves looking forward to their junior year.

They were able to make their own deci- sions for the first time about school courses. They had a choice to select from: Span- ish, general science, general math, home economics, voca- tional agriculture, industrial arts, and algebra. This is the year they gain- ed some wonderful class- mates from the neighboring communities of Clarksfielcl, Fitchville and Hartland. As ways to help the class treasury, the freshmen sold concessions at several football games and at the Huron - New London basketball game after which they sponsored a record dance. 'They also had a coat-checking service at one of the Huron tournament games. This year members of the class were active in various sports, such as basketball and football, and the class is just- ly proud of the record they made. They also took a very ac- tive part in many other ac- tivities. Among them were: orchestra, symphonic band, marching band, choir, and the school paper. All in all the freshmen consider this a very successful first year of high school and are now looking forward to their sophomore year.

GRADE SCHOOL ACTIVITIES Due to the incrtased enrollment in the elementary school, two school programs were given during this year. Grades 1, 2, and 3 presented a very fine Christmas program just before the Christmas vacation. In March, grades 4, 5, and 6 presented an entertaining program based on the folk songs of America. A nature study trip to the park was taken by hits. Bradish's room. The children studied the many evidences of spring and then wrote a story of their experiences. The boys and girls of Mrs. I-lyatt's room paid their annual visit to Grandma Sprin- kle Caged 942 on First Street, entertaining her with stories and songs. Mrs. Williams' boys and girls planted marigold seeds weeks before Easter and re- ported on the growth and care of the plants. Their weekly newspaper seems to be a big success. The boys and girls in Mrs. Ross' room are really reading library books. Each time they complete ten books, they receive a prize. A grand prize will go to the one reading the most books. Miss Baker's room felt very proud of its Easter egg tree, which is a revival of an old, old custom. CA number of other rooms also had nice trees.j The boys and girls in Mrs. Chase's room visited the Don Snyder farm to see the sheep sheared and to see the wool bundled and weighed. They had been studying about th raising of sheep prior to their visit to the farm. The health scrap books made by the boys and girls in Miss Paddock's room helped them to remember many of the important rules in caring for their bodies. The fourth grade, consisting of Mrs. Robbin's and Mrs. Weaver's rooms, visited the Firelands Museum at Norwalk, Ohio where they saw many of the things they had been reading about in Singing Wheels. The fifth grade, colnposed of Miss lcCfCl1L11T1,S and Mrs. Gharst's rooms, visited the Diesel shops and the classification yards of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad at Willard, Uhio. ' During its study of transportation, Mrs. Finkel's group had an interesting room display of the different models of automobiles. Mrs. Wisler's sixth grade group recorded one of their reading lessons on the tape recorder. It certainly was interesting to hear ourselves reading aloud. .X sv is Top row ll. to r.l - Otis Randleman, Tommy Brundage, Paul Terner, John Pierce, Gary Burt, Elvin King, Richard Carroll, Phillip Mourton, Guy Lucas, David Wells, Robert Harp. 2nd row - Jimmie Crabbs, Jimmy Lawrence, Terry Fingulin, Hubert Snyder, Carmel Tackett, Ronnie Granneman, Harold Knapp, Gary Bonney, Roger Ulm, Richard Weathington, Tommy Randleman, Dennis McConnell, Gene Funk, lst row-Mellanie White, Janet Copley, Carol Cowie, Sandra Miller, Meredith Brazie, Marcia Kirkpatrick, Eunice Allem, Gloria Delamater, Kathryn King, Lois Winfield, Mrs. Wisler.

"East Lynne" is known as the "grand- daddy" of all "meller-drammersn. The new dramatization of the novel preserved all the spirit of the old play and added more laughs than any old-fashioned "meller-drammer" ever had. The play deals with the plight of Lady Isabel Vane, who is left orphaned and pen- niless in her late teens, because, unknown to her, the home where she spent her child- hood, East Lynne, was sold to Archibald Carlyle several months before her father's death. Raymond Vane, her only relative, offers her a home, but his wife is so cruel to her that she rejoices when she receives a marri- age proposal from Archibald, whom she soon learns to love. Half mad with jealousy be- cause of Barbara Hare, also in love with Ar- chibald, Isabel leaves her husband and son and runs away with Sir Francis Levison. She soon realizes his worthlessness, and, in the end, returns to East Lynne to see her sick boy and to see good triumph over evil.

STAFF I I I O yr f Gloria Chase, Ralph Westfall, lrene Earl, Marilyn Frank, Gordon Marett, Miss' Hartford. The annual staff was late in organizing this year, but, nevertheless, with a lot of team work, we managed to publish an annual. Editor Gloria Chaie and Advisor Miss Hartford did much of the preparatory work in planning the book. Then, u ith the help of Gloria's assistants, Dixie Hyatt and Dick Hines, they worked out tl1e details. This laid the foundation for two other editors of 'the staff", namely, the art editor, llalph VVestfall, and copy, Marilyn Frank. Ralph had two able art assistants, Barbara lillinwood and Dean Hansen, to aid him in working out the clever art work in this an- nual. Although Marilyn had much help from Carl Cawrse and jane Griffin, several representatives from the organizations and classes helped us get correct information. To those who contributed time and copy, we wish to extend our thanks. All the vvrite-ups then went to Proof Reader Irene Earl to be carefully checked. Of course, a very important committee, the business department, must not be for- gotten for we would not have been so financially well-off. Gordon Marett was the cap- able head of this group with Allen Keifer, Dan Bauer, and Lucille Atkinson helping him keep the records and solicit for ads. One other group which we feel must be mentioned is the junior editors. They did a fine job and will have a foundation for next year. Those who were Chosen from the junior class were: Junior Editor ,,.,,,,,,,,,,, Dianne lVleCullough Junior Business Editor ,,,, Stanley Switzer Junior Proof Reader ,4.., ,,,,,,,, I ack Hubbard Junior Art Editor ,,,,,,,.,.,,,,,,.,,,,,,,,.,,,,,,..,.,,,.,,,,,,.,.. Larry Granneman So, with the cooperation of everyone and by burning the midnight oil several nights, we wearily succeeded in completing the 1954 "VVildeat". ' li A! 'TASKETBALL Reserves j r. High Reserve Cheerleaders Although the Wildcats did rot have an impressive record during the regu- lar season Cthe record was 7 won and 9 lostl, they went on to finish in a blaze of glory by romping off with the Huron County Championship. N0 one who saw or participated in the tournament games will ever forget the excitement of those games or the close scores. In the first round of tournament play, it was a fairly easy victory over Greenwich with a score of 50 to 39. The second game proved more diffi- cult with the "Cats" winning by a one-point margin: New London, 383 Wakeman, 37. In the final round, New London defeated Nlonroeville hy eke-ing out a two-point lead in an overtime, The final score: New Lon- don 47g Monroeville 45. The team then advanced to the district tournament where it suffered defeat from Huron, 72 to 46. The teanfs members who won their letters this year were: Roger I-larner, Jerry Franklin, Clinton Randleman, Cordon Marett, Royce Ca n z, Ted Hardy, Holland Burton and Howard Duta. .za Fifi M I ,,. v, , J -.eww , w gm-si?" rg '- V1 , Ria? 3.

The "wheels" confer STAFF fir Dick Hines, Jack Hubbard, Bertha Anderson, James Kearney, Dave O'Hara, Gaylord White, Mr. Clinger. The willing and energetic "Tattler" staff has accomplished some definite changes this year. Each year an editor strives to print a better paper for the students and, at the same time, tries to get his staff members to work with one another. For the first time the ads were changed and placed throughout the newspaper with the news. Thirty-six ads were seen in the papcrg therefore, there were generally six pages of news. Each ad was just as interesting to read as the news because little jingles were made up about each one. Another great change was the switch from the two column system to the story col- umn system, typed clear across the page. Much credit should also be given to the advisor, Mr. Daniel Clinger, for the time lie spent in helping them iron out the many varied problems. All in all-ups and downs included-a good, news-filled, up-to-the-minute record of the school activities was published regularly in the New London High School "Tattler".

A short summary of the things it has done so far this year follows: At the beginning of the year it was decided, after much discussion, to let the Band Parents have the concessions for all the home football games. After the games were over, the question of how to split the money had to be decided. A permanent motion was made that the Juniors get 50 percent, Sophomores get 20 percent, Freshmen and Seniors get 10 percent, and FFA. and F.I'l.fX. each get 5 Percent. Then the money from the football programs had to be split. It was decided that the Student Council should get 2-7ths and the upper four classes 5-7ths, Since the old fire drill signs were very marked up and some of the rooms didn't have any, there was a committee appointed to make new ones for every room. Sponsored by The New London Record OFFICE ASSISTANTS Standing lleft to rightl-Carolyn Ray, Dorothy Ryan, Edgar Denger, Fred Gibson, Joe Gorsuch, Gordon Marett. Seated--Marilyn Massie, Lucille Atkinson, Gerald King, Dick Hines, Nathan Potts. Fritz Sauer, a member of the Student Council, donated two barrels for vvastepaper to be put in the new auditorium. John lylarett and jim Brown painted them and put them in the gym so that they would he there for the intramural games at noon and for the tournament games. During the tournament the Student Council sponsored the coat- eheck with all of the classes participating and helping with-this project. On May 7 and 8 there was a state convention held at Toledo. It was decided to have the president and a junior attend. The plaque in the hall 'hearing the name of the "Citizen of the Week" is another of its projects. A person is nominated by Student Coun- cil who has done a good deed during the week. The main project now underway is the sponsoring of the purchase of the "Master Time and Program System". This is a clock that automatically rings the hell at any time for which it is set. lrcf Top row llett to rightl-Don Gray, Erwin Scheder, Keith Robbins, Orlando Close, Oliver Close, Howard Kramer, Fred Gibson, Clarence Coy, Dean Cole, David L.

This year the F.l'l.A. members earned money by selling refreshments at a basketball game. They are very proud of the fact that they are niembrs of both the State and N11- tionul F.l'l.A, This is the first year that they have ever been a member of the national organization. Through the combined efforts of the F.H.A. and Home Ee. classes, the girls entertained the P.T.A. at one of their meetings. At the end of the school year there was at total of 64 members in the F.H.A. Mfg, I Speech if fDepartment As its first major activity, the speech de- partment prepared for the local Prince of Peace contests. These were held at the New London Methodist Church, the Fitchville llflcthodist Church, and the Olena Presby- terian Church. Gloria Chase, Mary Lou Gar- rison, Richard Hines and Gaylord White be- came eligible lor the county contest by win- ning here. Gaylord Wliite won the county contest and vient on to the district. Although Gaylord didn't win, he did a fine job rep- resenting New London. The speech students started memorizing speeches for the Bowling Green District bpeeeh Meet. Before going to Bowling Green, they gained experience by public ap-- pcarances and a practice meet at Clearview which enabled them to get three first places at the contest: Dan Bauer in dramatics, Gay- lord lVhite in extemporaneous speaking, and Gerald King in original oratory. They next took a one-act play, "The Sum- nions of Sarielq to Berea where they receiv- ed an "excellent" rating in the class B com- petition. Gaylord VVhite and Gerald King competed in poetry reading. On April 6th the Thespian Society Group 1347 was installed in this school. Since the society is for all the upper classes, any stu- dent who wishes can enjoy speech work. Two plays or more will be given, and speech will be offered all four years. The seniors are proud that this national organization has come to New London and know that it will be a benefit to all future students. ri fl TH ESPIANS Standing lleft to right!-Mr Sobers, Jane Griffin, Gaylord White, Gloria Chase.

During football season the most active of the instrumental groups was, of course, the marching band. Many hours were spent practicing music and drilling for formations- necessary preparation for presenting good half-time shows. At the close of the season, the concert band took over, and the strains of marching music changed to a more classical nature. On January 15, this band presented a mid- winter concert which was very well received by a large audience. The strings had their chance, too, in the orchestra which was organized during the second semester. A very successful season was also enjoyed by the vocal groups, consisting of: girls' glee club and two mixed choirs. The combined choir was rewarded for its hard work in the District Music4Contest by receiving a rating of "superior," which qualified it for the State Music Contest, held at Capitol University on April 24. Individual musicians were given an opportunity to test their skill at the District Solo and Ensemble Contest at Tiffin this year. Receiving ratings of "superior", which enabl- ed them to compete in the state contest, were: Marilyn Frank, singing a soprano solog ,lim Pierce, playing the tuba, Bill Pierce, playing the baritone, Judy McCullough, playing the alto clarinet, Gloria Chase, Dianne McCullough, and Marie Springer in a clarinet trio, and Marilyn Frank, Irene Earl, Dixie Hyatt, and Douglas Fetterman in a brass quar- tctte. From the state contest, ,lim Pierce brought home a Usuperiorv, the others rating "excellent" and "good". All the groups, vocal and instrumental, participated in the Huron County Music Festival, held this spring at New London. They again joined forces to present the final performance of the year, the annual Spring Music Festival.

State Fair, an outstanding novel, was made into two major motion pictures as well as the play. The story is as follows: The Frake family leaves for the State Fair with Mother and Dad taking their entries for contests: home made pickles and the hog, Blue Boy. The younger Frakes, Margy and Wayne, find their own interests: Margy, the roller coaster, and Wayne, the "hoopla" stand. Both Margy and VVayne are romantically interested at home-in I-larry and Elea- nor-but they are ready for a State Fair fling. Margy meets Pat, a columnist, and Wayne meets Emily, who attends fairs with her father. As the week passes, Motl1er's pickles begin to get surprising publicity, and Blue Boy's fame grows to tremendous proportions. The older Frakes do not suspect Pat's hand in this for they do not know what his profession is. With the approaching end of the fair, VVayne and lX-Targy both must make difficult decisions concerning the two people in their lives. As it turns out, everyone is happy about the decisions they make, and the Frake family leaves the State Fair with many pleasant memories. Last Spring our class very successfully presented a three-act comedy, "Cheaper By The Dozen". ,. TRACK Because of the new building which was built on the west end of the track, the "Cats" couldn't have any home meets. Even though the boys couldn't do anything but practice short runs, they Put on some good Performances. rlhe "Cats" opened theiseason at Amherst. Bill Randleman set a track record in the 100 yard dash Crime 10.4 sec.D. The boys put forth all they had, but Amherst had a very good track team. Final score, Amherst 77, New London 41. The "Cats" next traveled to Vermilion, and the boys wanted a victory very badly. New London got 7 first, 6 second, and 8 third places. Vermilion got first, 5 second, and 4 third places. The final score was New London-60, Vermilion-58. The team then journeyed to the Firelands League IX-'leer in Sandusky.

The main purpose of this library is to enrich the lives of the people in our community and school. The actual use the pub- lic makes of the library is the only reward for the work being clone. This year the total circulation increased to 230,644 books, and H13 lenders. Other signs of growth are the new rural book service, the increase of high school employees, and the addition of 732. books, a new World Book Encyclopedia and a new Atlas to the bookshelves. There were many events this past year which were held for the purpose of better acquainting the public with the facilities MRS- FRENCH " LIBRARMN Offered- Af 1110 lJCgiH1'1iDg Of the YCHI, there WHS 2111 Open house for the faculty with the theme of "An Apple for the Teacher".
