For the first few months. school was held in the Methodist church and then it was transferred to the Community Hall. Five of this yearls senior class were present in this group. They were John Eber, John Conry, Arlene Kocher, Ethel Plue, and Grace Sherwood. Mrs. Ross guid- ed our efforts during the first two years of our school career. John Eber left us during the third grade and went to Norwalk. Lester Nichols joined the class. Miss Beatrice Brown was our capable instructor. Most teachers dislike to have their pupils chew gum during school and this fact was quite vividly impressed on our minds during the fourth grade, when Miss Btaxie Fowler, our teacher, made most of the class stand on the floor and chew a stick of gum one hundred times. Jolmny returned and Bernice was added to the class. lve were promoted from the little white school building to the Hfth grade in the brick builgling. Miss Odah Moll gave us our instructions for the next two years. Phyrne Bly and YVilliam Cates joined the ranks. During the seventh grade we were under the su- pervision of Mr. Otto Roc. During this year we gave a very interesting and amusing St. Patrick's Day program. Two weeks after the close of the school year almost all of us went to Milan, Ohio, where we were very hospitably entertained by Mr. Roe and his wife. hir. J. Cline Slack, our commander during our next year's sail on the sea of progress, has often said that a book of boners, consisting of our foolish re- marks, should be published. ln this year Robert Martin joined the crew. Wie finished the eighth grade successfully and prepared to enter high school. Shortly after the beginning of our Freshmen yrar the remainder of the High School subjected us to an initiation at an "Optimist Partyfi VViIliam Oates showed his fighting ability by preventing his antagonists from giving him a dose of Epsom Salts. Ethel Plue and Arlene Kocher played on the first team in basketball and continued their excellent playing throughout their Sophomore year. Our first real party was held at Bernice Omois home, where we enjoyed ourselves to our hearts, content. Wle attended a coasting party at Arlene Kocher's place, and what a time we had eating popcorn and eandyl Arlene, who had delivered numerous reci- tations while a pupil in the grades, represented us in the County Reading Contest. Our number was increased by the coming of Benjamin Harrison. ln our Sophomore year John Eber was elected Presi- dentg and Grace Sherwood, secretary of the Sopho- more Senior Literary Society. Grace Sherwood was also Townsend's representative in the County Spelling contest. In our Junior year more interesting things hap- pened. The Juniors gave a play, "The Ghost Storyf' in which Bernice Omo and John Eber had the leading roles. In the spring the Juniors enter-- tained the Seniors by taking them to a theater party in Norwalk. Ben re-entered the class in our Senior year, and thus we continued without further changes in en- rollment. Robert llartin won the local Prince of Peace Deelaniation contest. John Tiber was elected liditor-in-chief of "The Optimistu and was also the proud winner of the Huron County Scholarship Contest. Robert Martin again won first honors in Oratory when he participated in the Huron County Uratorical contest. The first and only Senior party was held at hir. and Mrs. lVilliam Boltonis home. tive felt very grateful to them for inviting us at their home. Our last two weeks of school life were filled with activities the memories of which we will always re- tain. First, came the Junior-Senior Reception at which we were delightfully entertained by the Junior Class. The Bacculaureate services were conducted by Rev. O. E. Hanawalt. The Senior Class Play i'The Road Backu was given May 18 at the Town Hall. Everyone reported that it was an interesting performance. Friday evening hiay 20, a distinguiished looking group of eleven Seniors in their cap gowns. received their diplomas. VVe bid "Farewell" to our high school days but say "VVelcome', to our future days. JUNIOR- SENIOR RECEPTION On Saturday evenil1g,May 1-1, the Juniors de- lightfully entertained the Seniors at the annual Junior-Senior banquet. The Seniors were invited to a semi-formal dinner given at the luxurious Ava- lon hotel dining room at Norwalk. An elaborate three course dinner was served, after which toasts were given by Miss livelyn Lehnert, president of the Junior Class, hir. Robert lNIartin, president of the Senior Class. Superintendent C. C. Taylor, lNIr. J. C. Slack, and Miss hlargux-rite Clark also re- sponded with pleasing toasts. After this brilliant affair. the group went to the Moose Tlleatre. Here they enjoyed an amusing picture. Everyone present had a verv enjoyable time. May, 1932 THE OPTIMIST Page 9 r -- V --- ...- e. W SENIOR DRAMATICS On VVednesday evening. May 18. the Seniors presented their play "The Road Back" at the Town- send Town Hall. The play was written by Joseph Carlton. 'AThe Road Back" is an intensely human play that opens up a vista of joy Illlil contentment to a harassed and uncongenial family. Fowler fLester Nicholsj. a little discour- aged man of fifty, and Hhlai' Fowler fGraee Sher- woodj, a large fat woman, the complaining, whining. shallow, easy to cry type, have gone to send in a small eastern city. lt is interesting to watch Pa regain confidence in himself and to watch Ma re- sume her duties as mistress of the house. Jenny Qliernice Omoj, a home loving, industrious and sweet girl is the mainstay of the family. Her brother CGeorgej a shifty, neier-do-well boy of nineteen, embezzles H3500 from the bank. After getting George to promise that he will go straight Jenny takes the blame and is about to be sentenced when someone hy exerting his influence has the mate ter silenced and both Jen and George are freed. Milly Clithel Pluej is the youngest daughter and adds a lot of pep and zest to the play. She uses slang galore and because of her independent outt- look on life produces numerous laughs. Blake Chester flienjamin Harrisonj. the scion of a wealthy family. is very much in love with Milly and much to the disgust of his mother, a very aris- tocratic woman. announces his intentions of marry- ing her. Arthur McLeod Cltohert ltlartinj, a very deter- upau mined young man, has been in love with Jenny for a long time and has never proposed. but has assumed a sort of proprietary interest towards her. ln or- der to arouse his curiosity Jenny tells him that she is going to marry someone else. lt is at the very close of the play that Arthur discovers that Jenny was merely pretending. llrs. Blinders Q.-Xrlene Kocherj is a gossiping neighbor who visits Ma to learn the news of the Fowler family. Her butting-in furnishes many good laughs. Mr. Harrison QJohn Conryj is a typical business man of fifty. He is the employer of Jenny and George. George Qlvilliam OatesQ. the son, is a shitty ne'er-do-well boy of nineteen. He is the only mein-- ber of the family towards whom lla shows any fondness. Mrs. Chester CPhyrne lilyj is a very wealthy and aristocratic lady, who, at first, absolutely refuses to let her son Blake marry llilly. lint when Uncle Ben, Pa's brother from Arizona, makes the start- ling announcement that he is a millionaire and that Milly is worth 955004000 she consents to the l11Z11" riage. Ben Fowler CJohn Fberj suddenly comes out of the VVest to visit his brother. His appearance is very deceiving because he looks like a poor man but is in reality a millionaire. lt is he who starts Pa on the road to success and erases from the minds of the family the terrible disgrace that George once stole 35500 from a bank. JUNIOR CLASS PLAY One of the most successful stage productions ever presented by the students of Townsend High School was the Junior C'lass Play. ff.-X Little C"lodhopper', by Yvalter Ben Hare, which attracted a record crowd to the Town Hall on Friday evening, ixlay 22nd, The play, which was staged in the home of lNIrs. Chiggerson-Boggs, of New York, dealt with prob- lems all youth must face and conquer or be con- quered. Josephine Raton as the Little Clodhopper fJndyj an orphan was often abused and knocked about, YVintield Swabley as the book agent and de- tective. Sherman Hyde as the delicate little son of Mrs.Chiggerson-Boggs, Glenora Gardner as the vamp, but witty young thing, John Neilsen as the farm hand and policeman, Evelyn Lehnert as the scheming mother of George, Ilo lily as the hostess and admiring wife of Ocey Gump. displayed marked ability in depicting their characters and won great applause for the realistic portrayal of their parts. The plot, age old, but never-the-less new in a certain sense, added tenseness and humor to many situations in the play and brought out the ditlicul- ties people face in every day life. The players were well suited to the parts they played. The cast follows: Ocey Gump ..., ..... . lohn Neilsen Julietta Bean ..,. ....................

Rose Rudin Roose, who was recently lJlll'iCll :it Townse11d, U., has just given to tl1e T o w 11 s e ll d Higl1 School, a collection of some 225 or 111ore o f miscellaneous books from tl1e li- brary of hlrs. Roosa. He has made itll in- itial advance of P5100 on a llemorial Fund l1e has in mind to es- ! tablish later for the School. The endow- ' ' ment is contemplat- ed to be large enough to yield 3100.00 annually, wl1e11 tl1e plans are completed. lt is to be placed i11 charge of a permanent trusteeship or committee, to be disbursed for the educational benefit and en- ioyinent of the scholars of Townsend High School. The details of tl1e plan are to be worked out Zilld announced later. The 96100.00 on the Memorial for this year, has already been turned over to the present temporary disbursing committees. This committee is com- posed of the nearest relatives of Mrs. Roosa, being her mother, Mrs. Frederick Rudin, of Cleveland, O., l1er sister, Melanie Rudin, of Cleveland, O., her brother, Albert Rudin, of Cleveland, O., John Rudin, of Chicago, Ill., and Charles and Fritz Rudin of Elyria, O. Mr. C. C. Taylor, Supt. of tl1e school l1as been advising alld working with tl1e committee, and is the guiding spirit i11 the detailed handling of matters. This temporary committee, with the etlicient aid and suggestions of Mr. Taylor, has already expend- ed the first 33100.00 of this Memorial Fund ill p11r- chasing a 7-Tube Philco Radio for the scl1ool, equipped with 4 loud speakers for the various class rooms, the balance to be devoted to aid in defray- ing tl1e miscellaneous expenses in connection with installation, also printing some of the annuals, shelving for the books, incidentals, etc., etc. Until tl1e details of an 6HClOVVYil6llt and trustceship plan are f11lly worked out and presented, Bfr. Roosa will Ill3.lCC flllllllill advances for the ltdemorial to the present temporary conimittce, as was 110116 for this ycar, and they will also conti11ue to act as at pres- cnt. Mr. Roosa is happy to do this in memory of Mrs. Roosa and in recognition of the debt of gratitude which he feels, she, and he also, owes to this her iirst school. lNIrs. Roosa often loved to recount to llilll her early life a11d experiences at Townse11d and Collins, Ohio, and to travel back ill thought witl1 llilll, over these roads of her girlhood days and training. The following stanzas of a beautiful poem by Teresa Brayton, are perhaps worth while quoting llC1'C as probably expressing i11 a way as this writer conceives it, the sentiment animating Blr. Roosa in this Memorial. "A big road circles l'Oll11Ll the world, sure fine it is they say, But the little boreen of llly l1eart 1'llIlS lone and far awav. ar . ' . . . . I'1s winding over weary seas WVltl1 many a sign be- set, ' But Oh. of all thc roads l know, it is tl1e dearest vet." "By common ways and common homes and common graves it goes, But no one knows its beauty like the soul within me knows: Its dawns are drenched with dews from heaven, its nights are tearful sweet, And sometimes one long erucihed walks there to guide my feet." "It leads me down by purple hills Where fairies sport o' nights, It shows me many a hawthorn lane, the scene of dead delightsg It enkindles again with life, the face that's laid away Beneath tl1e cold of grass and mold, 1ny road of yesterdayf, "O twilit boreen of Illy heart, tl1e world is vague and vast, But you are l1oly with thc balm of all my shallowed past, You thrill 111e witl1 tlltl to11cl1 of hands my hands were wont to l1old, You l11re me with the lilt of dreams I dreamed and lost of old." "The big, big road of the world leads on by many a stately town, But tl1e little boreen of my heart keeps ever drift- ing down By common ways and common graves and common l1o111cs, bllt Oh! Of all the roads ill life it is the sweetest road I know." By Fritz Rudin, Elyria, Ohio Page 14 HIGH SCHOOL ROLL SENIORS BLY, PHYRNE HARRISON. BENJAMIN NICHOLS, LESTER PLUE, ETHEI.

All having a good time. YVe, the class of '32, are all enj oying ourselves at the Alumni Banquet, which is being held at Townsend High School, Slay 18, 1952. ln a large 11ew school building, which has bee11 erected on the site of the old one, we recall the memories of our school days and discuss the many changes which have taken place in the old community. lt has grown to be a very prosperous town. One of the leading features of its progress is a large factory which produces the world renowned mechanical man, which eliminates the hard manual labor on the farm. 'lhis marvelous invention was the idea of YVilliam Oates. He became so tired of doing chores night and morning tlltlf he suddenly set himself to the task or Ellllllilllg of some way to keep from having to work. The result of his labor was this excep- tionally popular machine man, which looks a great deal like 'Lin Henry of "Ohio l"armer" fame. Anxious to learn whether the rest of the class has been as successful as Bill, we learn that John Eber has become a heart specialist. He holds an important position in a hospital in Hopscotch, Michigan. QNVe wonder if he wounds hearts so tllilt he can heal them.j Arlene liocher, whose name has appeared again and again on the womens sport page of the news- papers, is particularly noted for her long distance baseball throwing. She attributes her success in this line to tile experience gained at the Huron County track meets. Arlene has accepted a posi- tion as physical director in Bassar College. W e always thought that Robert Martin would at- tain great heights because of his remarkable ability in public speaking. And, to be sure, he has not disappointed us, for he is now in Congress, and we hear that he can compete with the best speakers. lf you wish a new law passed just tell Bob about it and he will talk them into it. Benjamin Harrison has become an admiral of the United States Navy. You can imagine how tall and handsome he looks in his uniform. Ethel Plue, an aviatrix, is now piloting a passen- ger plane from New York to Paris. She has taken part on many occasions in stunt flying. lt makes one hold his breath to watch her perform some of her favorite dare-devil stunts. Lester Nichols, we find, has become an eminent musician. He lives in Berlin, Germany, where he composes a great deal of music. Grace Sherwood seems to be enjoying life very much. She writes a great deal. If you wish to spend a pleasant evening. just pick up her latest novel. uve will guarantee that you won't be able to lay it down until you have finished the last page. The title of her latest book is 'fl.ove in a llistf' John Conry, a great scientist, has now perfected a means of communication with the people of ltlars. Bernice Omo, a popular movie actress, lives in a magnificent mansion in Hollywood. She attributes her suiccess to her husband who directs her pictures. VVe agreed that the 20th anniversary of our class was the most successful one which We had attended, for it was the first at which all eleven members of the class had been able to be present. Yve hope that the thirtieth anniversary will be just as success- ful and that we shall be able to learn more about the progress of our classmates. 113. B, In Memorium of Mrs. Rose Rudin Roosa ttbntinued from page 121 Convention in San Francisco, for the Evansville Courier and allied papers in Indiana and Kentucky. Later, she went to the "Evansville Journaln, where she edited the special Sunday Magazine Sec- tion for boys a11d girls. She made the name Rose Rudin famous as a writer of features and big news stories. She was married November 12, 1921, to Howard Roosa, former Editor and part owner of the 'fEvans- ville Courier" newspaper. They spent two years in Europe, attending the Passion Play, traveling, and visiting relatives of her parents in Switzerland, in- cluding the family of the celebrated Swiss artist, Albert Anker. Returning to America, they Went to Albuquerque, New hlexico, for her health. Her natural disposi- tion and energy would not permit her to take the needed rest. Not content to do only housekeeping, she became a member of the Tuesday Literary Club, and a life member of the Albuquerque tVoman's Club. In 1927, the General VVoman's Federation award- ed her the prize out of 81 contestants from all parts of the United States, for the best news article fea- turing a woman's club activity. ln 1928 she became interested in politics and led the activities of the Democratic XVomen of New Mexico. She organized and was President of the State W'omen's Democratic Club of 2700 members, of which the Vice Presidents were hlrs. Helmick, wife of Judge Helmick, and Mrs. Bratton, wife of the U. S. Senator from New Mexico. She was in demand for the platform and spoke in all parts of the State, often broadcasting her speeches. The strain was too much. Pneumonia developed to further aggravate and weaken her condition, and after long months in a sanatorium, she passed away December 26, 1931. The Albuquerque, N. M. newspaper stated upon her death that she was mourned as the best loved woman in Albuquerque. Her accomplishments won for herself the admiration of young and old, from the humblest citizen to men and women high in the educational, newspaper and political life of lndiana and New Mexico. The numerous newspaper no- tices, telegrams and letters received by hir. Roosa from their mutual friends. expressed not only sin- cerest sympathy for him, but a feeling of personal loss and sorrow occasioned by her untimely death. i'To live in the hearts of those we love, is not to dief, By Fritz Rudin, 221 Yvooster St., Elyria, Ohio Page 244 THE OPTHNIIST NNY, 1932 I::vc:,...oc::1.c:::.oc:::vn gophonlore-vWHXVh'1t his the mogt ::::::::::::::::::::g:: 4, . . . . ll W L 'l eyes but has no eye trouble?"
