At last this is May, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty
Our school days are over, our life's just begun..
Twelve long years have passed for us ten:
Time has made us ladies and men.
We give you our class one by one,
So you can see what we've seen and done,
It's sad to be leaving, yet it's fun to go,
So here's the Seniors for you to know.
First comes Herbert Bigelow, the class brain,
Who knows enough to get out of the rain:
He got A grades: these were tops,
And as for studying, he never stops.
Now take Don McFadden, who isn't quite
But as for sports, he knows what's right:
He knows all the rules of the games,
But most of all he knows the dames.
Here's Mary Archer, quite a girl:
She has a nice srnile and her hair has curl:
In classes she sometimes dldn't under stand what was
Because she was always dreanning of Ted.
Harold Hawley, who is usually known as Leroy,
Is of course, any wo:-nan's joy:
lt's really a good thing we've got him in our class,
Or lots of us wouldn't ever have passed.
,Now take Art Walter, he's in our class too:
We don't know how, but he somehow got through,
He joined us from Huntington when we were in grade
And has been with us the rest of the time.
Ardith Ringler is the quiet one,
But she's always having a lot of fun.
She's taken up cheerleading as her fame,
And who knows, she might end up at Notre Dame.
Jim Dague is one of us ten.
He likes the women and he likes the men:
He likes sports, eating, and sleeping.
I guess he likes everything but bookkeeping.
Now here's Howard Clawson, who's joy is a
His ambition is to learn to type.
He gets around to various places,
And is always running into farniliar faces.
I-lere's Royal Dobbins, the class joy.
He really :lsn't too bad of a boy.
l-le's out for fun, has lots of life:
He plans on settling down with a nice sensible wife.
Now here comes me, last in line,
And l get the blame for this stupid rhyme,
I've had my fun along with the rest
And really had a time passing a test.,
We say good-bye from the bottom of our heart:
In some ways we hate to partg
We've had our fun and now we're through
So here's a so-long to all of you.
We leave you now to choose the right
Whatever it may be,
So hex-e's a request to everyone
To remember the Seniors of '5l.

On one bright and sunny day on September 7, 1939, there began a new role
in history forthe Class of 1951. Four of the original who started to this school
are: Ardith Ringler, JoAnn Heifner, Howard Clawson and Don McFadden.
In our first and second year of school 'we were guided by Miss Cashell. P
But in the third year her name was changed to Mrs. Draper. Here's where
Don McFadden moved to Louisville, Ohios . In the, fourth grade, our teacher was
Mrs. Hawks. Nothing much happened in the fourth grade, but in the fifth grade,
we were pushed along by Mrs. Shaner. In the sixth grade, we were joined by
the "brain" of the class, Herbert Bigelow and our "ex-brain," Don McFadden.
Mrs. Garling was our teacher. ,
By the seventh grade, we'were started on the last half of,our slow journey
to nowhere. Here we were helped along by several new teachers. Mr. Workrnan
was our class advisor. We finally made it through the seventh grade without
much damage done, gaining Mary Archer. In the eighth grade, we were joined
by the fourth brainstorm of the class, Harold Hawley.. A
Then, we took our most important step of all. Yes, it came trueg we
entered high school,,believe it or not. Here we were joined by Art Walter and
Herbert Bigelow' moved to Polk. In the tenth grade, we were joined by Jim
Dague and Herbert Bigelow came back from Polk. Rob Dobbins, the biggest
member with the HQ brains, moved in from Brownhelm. In the next to the last
strenuous year, everything was quiet on the home front. But the last and the
most painful year, we were all surprised we were here. Howard Clawson
joined us from Wellington. Well, here we are, all bright and young and rarin'
to go. Now that we are here for the last time, weshall make the teachers happy
and I am not sorry to say we are glad to leave. '
During our school years, we hope that we haved lived up to our motto,
"Build for Character: Not for Fame."
