Now we would like to review a few of the happenings of the last twelve years. We entered the first grade in September 1943, but as of now, there are just a few left who were there to witness that memorable occasion. Our teacher was Mrs. Kirkton, but she was unable to teach us for the full year because of illness. Mrs. Marett taught us during the remainder of our first year. At this time we had little thought of even finishing grade school, but on being promoted to the second grade, we began to anticipate the time when we would be on the second floor and then maybe the sixth grade. Miss Gole was our second grade teacher and was well-liked since nobody received a "spanking" that year. We thought we were very fortunate in our third year for this was the first time that a third grade was to have a room on the second floor. Our teacher that year was Mrs. Burns and we were not so lucky with the "lickings" that year. We then progressed to the fourth grade. Our teacher was Miss Upton and we rememe ber how we used to enjoy the stories of her life as a missionary in Bolivia. Two new members joined our class that year. They were jim Pierce and Paul Porter. Mrs. Gharst took over in the fifth grade and under her guidance we had a very event- ful and happy year as we climbed the fifth rung of the elementary ladder. Then we gained the summit, or so it seemed, as we entered the sixth grade. Under the instruction of Mrs. Wisler, we reached the height of intellectualism. jack Hubbard joined us this year. As We entered the seventh grade, we discovered very quickly that instead of being at the top, we were again at the beginning. However, we rapidly became accustomed to life in high school and completed a very interesting first year in N.L.H.S. The eighth grade saw us preparing in anticipation of our graduation from junior High and again we were big shots only to be let down on entering high school. jane Weaver joined us this year. Our Freshman year was a big one as usual with the coming of the new students from Fitchville, Hartland, and Glarksfield. These students were: Stanley Switzer, Royce Ganz, Shirley Knudsen, Rolland Burton Cwho had moved to Fitchvillel, Phillip Schneiter, joan Bilton, Mary Ann Suda, Patty Parker, Rose Varga, Virginia Coy, Fritz Sauer, and Rich- ard Searight. Again in our sophomore year a new group of students came in, this time from Roches- ter. These were: Ted Hardy, Velma King, joe Gorsuch, Marolyn Fye, Bob Wolfe, jo- anne Ward, Mabel Ward, and Joe Wolfe. Another new entry from Greenwich was Nancy Logan. Our Junior year was filled with many activities, including our junior play, "State Fair" the first to be sponsored by the Thespian Society, and the junior-Senior Prom which climaxed a most eventful year. Bill Gregory joined our class this year. It was our privilege to be the last class to enter school under the supervision of M1'. Ira L. Landes, for he retired at the end of our first year in 1944. Our next superinten- dent was Mr. D. P. Bodenbender, who was here for three years. At his departure in 1947, the superintendency was taken by Mr. K. G. DcGood, who was here for five years. At the beginning of our sophomore year in 1952, Mr. E. Schacht came to New Lon- don as superintendent and it is under his supervision that we graduate. CLASS HISTORY As we look back on our school experiences, we must express our sincere thanks to the teachers who worked so diligently that we might be in the place we are today. The original Senior class in New London included: Bertha Anderson, Jerry Brandal, Rnlland Burton, Ella Nlae Crandall, Shirley Delamater, Larry Cranneman, Beverly Hart- man, Marlene Humphrey, Joyce jackson, Esther Kellar, Charles Lindenau, Dianne MC- Cullough, Charlotte Poole and Wiliner White. At the same time that this group was beginning school in New London, loan Bilton, Virginia Coy, Royce Ganz, Shirley Knudsen, Patricia Parker, Keith Robbins, and Phillip Schneiter, were doing the same in Fitchville and Richard Searight was starting school in Clarksfield. Marolyn Pye, Velma King, joe Wolfe, Robert X'VO1fC, Joanne Ward, and Mabel Ward were taking the first steps through the door of the Rochester first grade. A11 in all, 28 members of our class were beginning school careers in the area schools that send their pupils to N.L.IrI.S. Others joined our class as we have noted and togeth- er we make up the inimitable Class of 1955. As a class, we are looking forward to our Baccalaureate Services on Sunday, May 22, and our Commencement Exercises on Thursday, May 26. Rev. Lawrence Crawford and Rev. Harold Allem will collaborate in our Baccalaureate Services and Dr. Glenn L. Clay- ton is to be our commencement speaker. 0 CLASS PROPHECY At the 1975 Alumni Banquet of good old N.L.l'l.S., the Historian of the Class of 1955 reported that the graduates of that year are now engaged in the following pursuits of life: Two of the '55 graduates have migrated to Norwalk-at the largest bank, serving as chairman of the board, is Patty Parker and over at the Court House is Marolyn Pye, sec- retary for the County Commissioners. Mary Ann Suda is in Cleveland working with her sister. They are co-sales' managers at I-ligbee's and their new ideas have revolutionized the shopping industry. Virginia Coy is now the head beautieian at one of the leading hair stylist salons in New York.

Keith Robbins, after graduation from Ohio State, purchased a 350-acre farm next to the farm of Royce Ganz. His Berkshire hogs escape into Royce's orchard and eat his ex- perimental orange-apples.

The latest style, a bird's cage with a live parakeet inside, was designed by Joyce jackson. Wilmer White owns that big farm just south of New London. The "White Rectang- ular Farmn is experimenting on Kentucky Blue grass-trying to make it green. Mabel Ward, still working hard, has traveled to France and is taking a cooking course at one of the most famous cooking schools in the world. Rose Varga also traveled to France with Mabel. She has to keep slim because she is modeling for Dior. Mabel has helped Rose Varga by developing a chocolate sundae with very few calories. With this review of the accomplishments of the Class of 1955, we cn conclude but one thing. We are proud of every one of the members of this class on this, the twentieth anniversary of their graduation. We can only guess at the happenings of the next twenty years, but we know that everyone of them will continue to strive to do his best. Sponsored by Waldorf Studio CLASS.

C Sponsored by Victoreen instrument Company AND OUR ENROLLMENT SOARS VVhen the 1954-'55 school year began in September, 387 students were enrolled in the upper six grades. The largest class was the Freshman class with a membership of 77, but the 76 seventh graders were pressing very closely for this honor. VVe, the Seniors, were the fewest, numbering but an even 50, and today we are but 45 in number. The elementary school again mushroomed and a total of 457 shining faces appeared the day after Labor Day. Again as in every recent year, the first grade was the largest with 36 pupils in each of the three first-grade rooms. Although some rooms seem to have a preponderance of boys and others a majority oi: girls, the statistics say that New London School has 428 boys and 416 girls, a rather close division of the 844 students. As the enrollment soars, so docs our number of teachers increase. The stall' now con- sists of 32 teachers. Also the number of buses needed to transport pupils increases and this year a new 60- passcnger bus was put into service making a total of six New London buses now carrying pupils to school each day. As the student body grows, the corridors of New London School bulge more and more. No rooms have been added for high school purposes for the last 30 years and only four new rooms have been added for elementary purposes. To remedy this situation, a bond issue was passed last fall and the Board of Education has plans for the remodeling of the old gymnasium and the adding of a second floor to the new elementary building. lt is the hope of all of us that when the next school-year rolls around there will be fou 1' classrooms, a cafeteria, and new shop facilities awaiting the high school pupils, and four new classrooms ready to be occupied by the elementary grades. There is little doubt but that there will be more students than ever awaiting the opening of school next September. Sponsored by West End Greenhouse o Elementary School ELEMENTARY FACULTY ro is rs.

Mr. Schacht was again our advisor and Larry Crannenian was elected president. The Council met twice each month during the year and worlced on various projects. They assigned the rights to the concessions. Six assembly programs were sponsored for the student body during the year. At intervals during the year a deserving pupil was se- lected and his name posted on the "Citizen of the Wieck" plaque in the hall. Members of the Council served as hosts and hostesses at several meetings held in the New London Schools. A member of the Council also servcs as host or guide during each period of the school day. We desire to have all visitors feel welcome all the time. Our big, long-standing project finally reached fruition this year. After three years of hard work we now have an automatic bell system. The system, although not yet com- plete, is a most welcome addition to our school system.

Mrs. Marjorie P. French is our librarian. She has nine student assistants who are chosen by a faculty committee. Our three senior library assistants, who have now fin- ished most of their library work except for helping instruct the new girls are Dianne Mc- Cullough, Ioanne Ward, and Charlotte Poole.

Each year the Tattler editor and staff aim to improve on the work of the previous staff. So Editor lack Hubbard and staff endeavored to live up to all expectations. This year every page of every paper was legible. Why? We have a new A. B. Dick electric mim- eograph machine. What a replacement for our over-used, over-aged, hand-operated mat- chinel This new machine uses a water-base, quick-drying ink which doesn't penetrate tl1e paper. Therefore, this year we could print on both sides of the paper and We could also wash the ink from our hands and clothes. Since the paper could be printed on two sides, fewer pages were needed and the Tattler became an 81A"x1l" production. In this form it was much easier to handle. As can be seen in our picture above, the staff was not large, but with the cooperation of all, an interesting Tattler appeared fifteen times during the school year.

The one-act Play, "The Lotteryn was presented at the formal initiation of new members this spring. Later in the spring, a short three- act Play, "Hillbilly Weddin"' was given for an all-school assembly. The year's activity was concluded with the spring production, "House for Sale, I-Iauntedn.

The next game was New Lond0n's opener in the new Lakeland Conference and the ,Cats Chalked up a victory over Clearview 26-7. Then followed another conference victory over Amherst, a defeat by Huron, and then a mud-victory over Vermilion. This Vermilion game will long be remembered as it was rained out on Friday evening and then played Saturday afternoon with the Wilde ats splashing to a 25-7 Victory. For the last half of the season the team continued to play good football but they could not quite Click often enough as they compiled the same season record as did the Wild-- cats of last year.

The members of the track team are practicing diligently under the guidance of Coach Jerry and are aiming at places in the district meet which will qualify them for the state track meet. Last year, meets were held with Vermilion, Amherst, Ashland Reserves, Mansfield Re- serves, Clearview, Huron, and Wellington. Weather pennitting, these same teams will compete in the various track meets. The Wildcat thinclads this season are already vic- torious over Loudonville and are setting their sights on the first Lakeland Conference Track Meet. Three members of last year's mile relay team, Royce Ganz, Larry Granneman, and Stanley Switzer, plus Ted Hardy, are hoping to again qualify for the State Track Meet and to improve on last year's performance. The baseball squad is working out under Coach Myers, getting ready for the Huron County Baseball Tournament. Several of the team members remember the happy experi- ence of winning the Huron County championship two years ago and are hoping for a repeat performance. The Wildcat nine faces Wakeman in the first round of this year's tournament. Senior members of the Spring squads include Rolland Burton, Royce Ganz, joe Cor- such, Larry Granneman, Ted Hardy, 'lack Hubbard, jim Pierce, Stanley Switzer, and Joe Wolfe.

FIRST ROW-Tony Denslow, Gene Funk, James Mitchell, Joe Runkle, Robert Horp, Verne Runkle, Phillip Brittain, David Hort- ley, Donald Murr, Coach McGowan The seventh and eighth graders had an active year in sports under the leadership of Coach McGowan. The highlights of the football season were the two games under the lights. The game at Amherst ended in a tie all the way around. At Wellington the squad was split into two groups-the eighth graders lost to the Dukes but the Spunky seventh graders turned the tables so that New London gained a split for the evening. The basketball season was rather uneventful with almost the entire team coming from the seventh grade. The season ended on a sweet note as Wellington went down to de- feat in the season's finale. Our track team looks quite promising with Jim Mitchell, Otis Randleman, Dan Ringler and Eddie Shaver being our three-sport men.

The N.L.I-IS. Marching Band began the year by marching at the Huron County Fair. The same week inaugurated the Fall football season and the first marching show of the year. The Wildcat 55-piece marching band presented a show for every football game except one-Oh! that mud at the Vermilion game. The Halloween Parade was something to behold. Most of the band members were masked and in cos! tume. The marching was especially atrocious-gob lin steps and spooky strides. The entire band attended the Ohio State -Purdue football game as guests of the Music Parents Club and had a very enjoyable day watching the Buckeyes romp. As in the past few years, the Marching Band will parade for the Memorial Day exercises of New Lon- don, Fitchville, and Rochester. Sponsored by The C. E.

Following the season of the Marching Band came a series of try-outs and long rehears- als from which emerged the Symphonic Band. The organization of the Symphonic Band this year had to follow a faster tempo than usual because of the invitation to play at the annual meeting of the Fireland Electric Co-op on December 2. The next performance was the lVlid-winter concert in February followed by participa- tion in the Lakeland Conference and Huron County Music Festivals. The first Lakeland Conference Music Festival was held at Clearview. This was a selected group and there- fore only a part of our group played in either the 'A' or 'B' festival bands. Mr. Robert Fraser ol? Cleveland Heights High School was guest conductor. The Huron County Music Festival was held in New London again with our own Mr, Machles in charge of arrangements. Mr. Ernest Manring of the Cleveland Public Schools was guest conductor of the All-County Band.

MUSIC - MUSIC - MUSIC The Choruses, both the Mixed Chorus and the Girls' Chorus, were included in the invitation to perform at the Firelands Annual meeting. This was a big night for the musicians of N.L.H.S. and all the participants and director, Mr. hiachles, were proud to accept 'this invitation. The Choruses also participated in the Huron County Music Festival. The All-County Chorus numbered over 300 voices. OF this number, 68 girls were from New Lon- don. The N. L. Mixed Chorus has a membership of 73 boys and girls. Anon Award Both choruses competed in the District Band and Chorus Contest at Bascom with the Mixed Chorus receiving a I or "superior" rating and the Girls' Chorus meriting a II or "excellent" rating. The superior rating eamed by the Mixed Chorus entitled them to par- ticipate in the State Contest at Marion late in the Spring. The members of the Chorus will be attempting to emulate the fine record of last year's Mixed Chorus. Contest time also found our instrumentalists practicing hard. Fifteen New Londonitcs took part in the Solo and Ensemble Contests at Heidelberg College in Tiffin. They re- turned with four superior and five excellent ratings. These participants were: Clarinet solos-Sandra Sutherland, IIg Marie Springer, II, Dianne McCullough, I. Alto Clarinet solo-Judy McCullough, I. Baritone solo-Bill Pierce, II. Tuba solo-jim Pierce, I. Miscellaneous Trio-Judy Emch, Dianne McCullough, and Marie Springer, I. Brass Octet-Dick Morey, Doug Fetterman, Bill Pierce, Barbara Blaha, Ella Mae Crandall, Lauretta Snyder, Jim Pierce, and Velma King, II. Clarinet Quartet-Shirley Delamater, Dianne McCullough, Marie Springer and Paul Porter, II. Those musicians receiving superior ratings were eligible to participate in the state con- tests at Bowling Green. jim Pierce received a superior rating in the state contest for the third consecutive year. The other contestants did very well at the state contest with all of them receiving excellent ratings. As the annual goes to press we are building up to the climax of each year's musical ac- tivity, the Spring Concert. But we are also speculating about the winner of the Arion Award. The Arion Award is something new this year. Sponsored by the Music Parents Club it is to be awarded to the boy or girl representing the best in music in N.L.H.S. He or she must be tops because the selecting committee is to consider: scholarship, service, co- operation, musicianship, attendance, diligence, participation, and character, and that person should embody the best traditions and heritage of New London High.

The fifty-seven FHA. girls met regularly each month during the school year. This year the girls earned money by handling concessions at several football and basketball games. They also sold crepe-paper shakers of the school colors. Interesting activities of the year include - the initation of our new members, the making of candy for the P.T.A. Festival, the very successful Mother aad Daughter Ban- quet, the Christmas party and the exchange of gifts, the distribution of civil defense fold- ers, "Conelrad", to keep the people of our community alert in case of enemy attack, the "Career Dayin Home Economicsi' at Norwalk, the Sadie Hawkins Dance in the new gym. We, the FI-l.A. Seniors of 1955, wish future Fl-I.A. members the best of luck.

The Co-op Day of the Farm Bureau at Norwalk, the Parliamentary Procedure Con-- tCSt, the County Agronomy Meet at Greenwich, the trip to the Northern Ohio Egg Asso- ciation Market at New Washington, and other trips of lesser importance will long be re- meinbered. The annual F.F.A. Banquet was again a Parent-Son banquet and was well attended. Iflacli year this annual affair is one of the big highlights of the program and this was no exception. The departing F.F.A. Senior boys challenge the future seniors to continue this worthy tradition. Sponsored by Thomas 8.
