Our Sophomore Year is very memorable for the ordering of our class rings.
qw hat a timefj Mr. Kinney was our sponsor the first semester and Mr. Hanlin the
second semester. We gave the annual high school party during November with
Rietshlin's Orchestra playing. Kenneth Pfahler, Junior Rhienbolt and C harles Studer
left: Charles moved to New Washington.
The arrival of our class rings were delayed and they arrived in our Junior Year
after the class a year younger than we had received theirs, much to our envy. The
Junior Class Play "The BabySitter" was presented November Z5, 1947. We gave the
Junior and Senior Prom, on April 30, 1948, in the auditorium. Our class motto is
"Row Not Drift" and the class colors are gold and blue. The class flower is the yellow
rose. Geraldine Haymond and Effie Zeigler entered at the beginning of the year.
Eleanor Leonhart joined our class at the beginning of the second semester. Near the
end of the year Albert Miller moved to New Washington. Our sponsor was the same as
in our Sophomore Year, Mr. Hanlin.
Sixteen students came back in the fall of 1948 to complete their Senior Year.
They are: Florence Auck, Betty Bevier, Glen Burky, Ross Eckstein, Naomi Fried.
Ruth Graham, Eleanor Leonhart, Marlin Cole, Charles Magers, Helen Fagan, Leona
Stump, Leland Stump, Ross Eckstein, Rose Steele, Effie Zeigler, and Marjorie B aker.
Our graduation pictures were taken by Mfr. DeVito in November. B accalaureate
services were held May ZZ, 1949 with Rev. Danavan Hochstettler as speaker.
Commencement exercises were May 25, 1949. Our speaker was Rev. D. N. Roller frozn
Mansfield. The boys wore blue gowns and the girls white. Both wore tassels that were
a combination of gold and blue.

School days! OnSeptember 7, 1936, school days started for twenty-four little i
youngsters. Some would leave us and some would join our class, but we didn't worry
about that because we were surveying our new surroundings. We greeted our first
teacher, Miss Conagen, who was to be in charge of us. We were a little afraid at first
but we soon got over that and got down to work learning our numbers and letters.
Those who started the first year of school were: Glen Burky, Ross Eckstein.
Naomi Fried, Marjorie B aker, Leland Sturnp, Leona Stump, C harles Magers, Marlin
C ole, Cordelia Schiefer, and Ruth Graham. These people are still going to Tiro High
School and are now preparing to graduate. The rest of the boys and girls who started
that first year were: Donald Amstutz, Agnes Mitchell, Jacqualine Auck, Norma Cole.

In the fifth year Mrs. Stone was our teacher. Phyllis Cole and B ill Burns left
us and Mary Johnson joined our class.
For our last year down stairs we had Mrs. Stone for teacher. Mary Johnson

to feel big because we were going up stairs in the fall.
Happily we climbed the stairs to the seventh grade, feeling very grown-up.
Until she became ill, our sponsor was Miss Bauer. Mrs. Miller was our teacher for
the rest of the year. At the beginning of the school year Robert Williams entered from
Plymouth, Rose Steele from North Robinson and Olin Davis from Shilon. Later Florence

A Boat Trip
After much planning for our long awaited boat trip, the time arrived. My
SCHIEFER drove us to the boat dock, where the ship was being refueledwith COLE.
After we arrived aboard ship the bow lines were taken from the STUMPS . and
we were off.
Being much excited and curious we decided to tour the ship. The first thing we
noticed, hanging in one of the corridors, was a picture of Alexander GRAHAM Bell,
which was painted in FLORENCE , Italy.
Just as we were entering the dining hall, the BAKER, carrying a tray of hot fel
ROSS buns, got a CHARLEY horse in his leg, and slipped and fell, durnping the buns
into the lap of a woman. sitting at one of the tables.
