On departing we leave this issue of the OLD GOLD as a monument to the memories of the days spent in halls and classrooms of the Steamboat Rock School. In it we have portrayed to the best of our ability the school life as it is today and what it means to us. Despite our faults, if each owner feels a sense of pride in his copy of the OLD GOLD, we shall feel that our work has been justified. We, the members of the graduating class of May, Nineteen Hundred and Forty, ded- icate The OLD GOLD to Superintendent Ken- neth E. Amsberry, in appreciation of his services, not only in his constructive advice and loyal untiring efforts to all students but also in being mainly respon- sible for the production of this annual. ---ADMINTEIIQATIDN-1-' BOARD OF EDUCATION H.

These passengers gave their names as Wanda Dooley, Lorraine Devries, Robert Frerichs, Agnes Frerichs, Elmer Gast, Harold Harms, Gerhardt Kramer, Russell Karsjens, Ray Folkerts, Helen Olsen, James Sharpshair, Jeanne Starr, Ray Taylor, Faye Schwitters, Maxine McElroy, and John Henry Ca- ble. After brief instruction here under our stewardess, Miss Lynn Platt, we boarded a new trans-educational plane of the Steamboat Rock Consolidated Lines with Pilot H. A. Helden, Co-pilot Marguerite Tem- ple, and five assistants. Sixteen little hearts beat fast when they realized that their plane had not been occupied before. After a brief flight, Robert Frerichs found it imperative to fasten on his parachute and bail out to a new destination. At the refueling station, Howard Wooten, Robert F'1sher,LeOra Platte., and Kenneth Kramer joined the pas- sengers. Upon reaching the first stop, we saw fit to rest for a brief time. When we again resumed our flight we were promoted to a second plane with the same name and stewardess but a bit more complicated mechanism. Upon this flight, Harold Harms and LeOra Platte did not rejoin the company, but Ruth Bear and Mae Bleeker Joined the sea of familiar faces. During this flight, Wanda Dooley, Robert Fisher, Ag- nes Frer1chs,and Helen Olsen found use for their parachutes and left our company at various places along the way. At the refueling sta- tion, Don Folkerts stepped aboard and filled one of the seats so re- cently vacated. Following the performance of many spectacular feats, the passengers welcomed a rest. The embarkment upon the third plane found a new stewardess whom we learned to call Miss Trena Christians. John Henry Cable did not accompany us on this plane. We soon found that with the change of planes came increasing requirements. No parachutes were used during the entire flight but ata stop for supplies, Lawrence Kadolph, Roland Newby,a.nd Glen Robinson Joined our ranks and LeOra Platts transferred from an Owasa plane to our Steamboat Rock Consolidated Clipper. Heed- ful of our feverish activities, the stewardess informed us that we must rest. After this rest we resumed our Journey in a more advanced plane with the same stewardess and the new passengers, Evelyn Cretin, Mary Stutzman, Norma Hartman, Arthur Frer1chs,and Ernest Lulken. Dur- ing our flight, Roland Newby, Lawrence Kadolph, and Norma Hartman bailed out to catch other planes, but our activities continued until our fourth stop provided additional recreation. After our fourth stop, we resumed our trip without the presence of Mae Bleeker, Donald Folkerts, Ray Folkerts,and Gerhardt Kramer . We also found a new stewardess, Miss Lucy Grieves, and two new pas- sengers, Charles Asher and Lester Kramer. At our usual stop for re- fueling, Verna Weatherman and Charles Monroe bounded aboard our com- fortable plane. With this group we continued until our next 'time out" after which we entered another plane and found our usual company with only two vacancies--Glen Robinson and Charles Monroe hadn't re- sumed the flight. During this exciting lap of the Journey, Jeanne Starr bailed out and Harold Boyenga occupied her place.. All too soon we were informed that we must again rest. The seventh trip found all the previous students in their seats and lax Sharpshair occupying an extra one. A new stewardess, Miss 12 C ' 1940 Doris Brown, capably guided us during this flight. Clifford Readout Joined us and we continued happily onward until our usual distance had been covered and we reached our resting station. Upon entering our eighth plane, we found two strange passengers listed as Marjorie Price and Jack Dodd. At one of our numerous stops for investigation of interesting material, Alvin Hundertmark came a- board. Our stewardess, Miss Brown, proved to be very efficient through- out the trip but nevertheless, Charles Asher, Jack Dodd, and Lester Kramer found sufficient reasons to use their parachutes for hurried landings. When we again resumed our journey, we found an entirely different plane and different plans for its operation. Instead of being respon- sible to only one stewardess, we had a stewardess, Miss Letha Van Nos- trand, a steward, Mr. Kenneth E. Amsberry, and we were also under the instruction of the pilot, Mr. W. A. Scott, and co-pilot, Miss Marguer- ite Temple. On this new adventure, we encountered five new passengers, Luella Eilders, Virgil Inman, Merton Snapp,Dale Bogue,and Ruth Bear, but the place previously occupied by Marjorie Price was empty. We had much rough weather and came through monstrous clouds before we reached our eagerly anticipated rest. As we found our places aboard a new clipper for excursion ten, Maxine McElroy joined us, but Dale Bogue left to Join another air-way elsewhere. During this flight, Mr. H. A. Sissel occupied the vacancy made by Miss Van Nostrand andwe continued our flight with the rest of the crew remaining the same. This Journey came to an end all too soon when we were asked to "pile out" and take a rest. We soon resumed our Journey in a new plane with Mr. Amsberry ad- vancing to p1lot's position and Miss Dorothy Barker taking the co-p1- lot's seat with Miss Lucille Conzett and Mr. Sissel as helpers. Mary Stutzman, Ruth Bear, Virgil Inman, Maxine McElroy, and Kenneth Kramer failed to resume the flight. One seat was occupied byanew passenger, Anna Mae Janssen. Many new adventures were experienced during this flight which quickly came to an end. Then one bright morning in September, 1939, we took off on the last lap of our Journey in the Steamboat Rock Consolidated Lines' new streamlined clipper, with an extra passenger, Norma Hartman, and the same crew members. Many expeditions not previously experienced were now commonplace, and soon we were informed that the Board of D1- rectors of the Steamboat Rock Consolidated Air-ways had decided that we had finished our excursion. In all we have used twelve fully e- quipped clipper planes, have had five pilots, two co-pilots, seven stewardesses and stewards, and a total of forty-seven different pas- sengers aboard the planes at different times. We received a diploma for the outstanding work we accomplished during our 12,960 hours spent in the air. We, Faye Schwitters, Russell Karsjens, Elmer Gast, Ray Taylor, Lorraine DeVr1es, Roger Gast, Harold Boyenga, Alvin Hundertmark, LeOra Platte, Hex Sharpshalr, Merton Snapp, Anna Mae Janssen, Ernest Luiken, J1mSharpsha1r, Wilbert Harms, Luella Eilders, Clifford Read- out,and Norma Hartman, are proud to be able to launch out from the Steamboat Rock Consolidated Lines. 15 o.,UNl'..fl2S1 - 1 1 1 BACK ROW: Robert Klatt, Gerhardt Kramer, and Junior Persons.

THE JUNIOR CLASS This year has been one of increased activity over their Sophomore year for the members of the Junior Class. They started out the year by helping the Seniors make the annual carnivilasuccess and by preparing a three act comedy, NHuckleberry Finnn, which they gave on November 29 to a large crowd in the high school gymnasium. Seven of the members of the class, three girls andfourboys, were on the basketball squads and we have high hopes of having them as the foundation of our teams next year. Three of the boys are also on the baseball team. During the last semester, the Juniors have publlsheduamajority of the issues of our school paper, the NStat1oH. They sponsored several different projects during the year for the purpose of raising funds for the Junior-Senior banquet held in May. All in all, the Juniors have had a successful year and we sincere- ly wish them even more success in their Senior year. JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS President ....... ... .......

Ten members of the class were in either the boys' or girls' glee clubs, one also having given a solo in the district contest. Three took part in plays, two in this year' s Junior play and one in one of the one act plays given at the carnival in October. K The basketball teams claimed five of the Sophomores as mem- bers and one member showed promise on the baseball team in the spring.

Eight of these Freshmen were members of the band,onehav1ng given a trombone solo at the district contest this year. Five of the boys wereon the Junior high basketball team this year and we have high hopes that those five will help to build a good boys' team next year. Three of the girls played on the girls' first team, Ruth Hundertmark having been one of our outstanding guards. As far as baseball goes, there are prospects for the team in the next several years. We compliment these Freshmen on 8OI10b1y enduring the trials which they have had to encounter this year and hope that as they scale the heights to become more dignified as the next three years pass, that they will be a credit to our school.

Gerhardt Kramer STATIC HISTORY The idea of publishing a bi-weekly school paperixmthe Steamboat Rock Consolidated High School was first conceived and executed in 1933 by the typing class under the direction of Mr. Don Faris. A contest was held to select a suitable name for the paper. After much deliberation the name WStat1c' was selected. from the many entries and work on the first issue was begun. Henry Cramer was elected for the first editor of this new venture. Since they had very little e- quipment with which to work, the first issues could not compare to the present day publications. Someof the devices since acquired such as: letter guides, shading screens, stencillng plates, and improved styli have been responsible for this progress. The letter guides make possible symmetrical letters and figures which were otherwise made by hand thus saving considerable time and enabling a person to do neater work. Shading screens lend an artis- tic touch to various headings and advertisements. Stenciling plates aid considerably in producing fine, clear-cut stylus work. In l935thesuperv1s1ng dutlesweretaken over by Mr. Sergeant as Mr. Faris left for Wellsburg. One year later Mr. Kenneth Amsberry took over and has supervised the 'Station ever since. Each year the subscription list has increased until it hit a new high in '39 and '40 with one hundred and eighty-eight subscriptions. This wide circula- tion provides an attractive field for the advertisers of this paper. The 'Stat1c', published every two weeks, corresponds to the or- dinary small town newspaper. Many schools publish smaller editions but once a month. The 'Static' prides itself in offering advertising privileges to our merchants and school and community items of inter- est to our subscribers. In previous years the typing classes have lssuedthepaper. This year Journall nhasbeen introduced and the paper has been taken over by this class. 25 pw ww- BACK BOW: Roger Gsst,MaxSharpsha1r, Elmer Gast, Anna Mae Janssen, A1 vin Hundertmark, and Merton Snapp. FRONT ROW: Lorra1neDeVr1es,Haro1d Boyenga,Ray Tay1or,andFaye Schwit ters.

The play dealt with the plight of the aristocratic Chilton fam- ily when they found that they were faced with financial ruin and the transformation which took place when Patsy Sothern, a victim of mis- taken identity, arrived and was immediately forced to take charge of the wayward Chiltons and their mixed up affairs. To further compli- cate matters the whole Chilton household was placed under quarantine when they became afflicted with. a strange disease called Umountain mumpsu. Clever lines, romance, adventure and a happy ending char- acterized UMountain Mumpsu. CAST OF CHARACTERS The Junior Class Play UHUCKLEBERRY FINNW On November 29 the Junior Class presented the p1ay,nHuckleberry Finnn, to a large and appreciative audience. The playwasdirected by Miss Dorothy Barker and turned out to be a splendid success. UHuck1eberry Finnn concerned the problems which confronted the rogulsh uHuckN and his fun-loving pal, Tom Sawyer. A11 of the boyish pranks of these UDamon and Pythiasn companions were portrayed with a fine sense of theatrical value. uHuckleberry Finnu was a thoroughly modern play packed with laughs and clean, wholesome entertainment. 50 Timothy Hegan....... .... ..Ray Taylor Kerry Regan. ...... .Alvin Hundertmark Mrs. Shotts... ...Anna Mae Janssen Lida Shotts... .....
