The cognomen Rams was given to the ath-
letic teams of U S H S tor the first time in the fall
of 1939 At the suggestion of Coach Pierson, a con-
test was conducted by the local newspaper to
choose an appropriate nickname for the athletic
teams As a result the Ram came timidly into
He mingled freely with the faculty and the
tudents. He enlivened many otherwise dull class
recitations- he aroused the enthusiasm of the student
body as they gathered in the big gym for pep
rallies- he invaded various school organizations as
his popularity grew, but the Ram was the most
popular on the football gridiron and on the basket-

Mr. Ram seemed to forget his timidity as he followed the teams into the thick
of the fray. Not a few of the opposing players felt the "ramming" force and the
grim determination which was put forth by Upper's football eleven and basketball
As the close of the school year approached, Mr. Ram was caught up in a whirl
of activities centering around the seniors and their graduation exercises. He
realized that the time for many of his friends to depart was rapidly approaching.
At last the long anticipated day arrived when the members of the Class of 1940
received their diplomas, and Mr. Ram regrettully said "au revoir" to his departing

STRIKE UP THE BAND!
At its forceful reverbrations we all stopped to listen, for we love its stirring
music. We thrilled with pride as we watched the boys and girls in their snappy
uniforms march majestically across the gridiron, or lead a parade along the streets
of our town.
The Senior Band followed the football team to all of the games except Harding
High. Its music added color and enthusiasm to the games. This year the band
made a very fine showing on the football field. The drills and formations dis-
played between halves were Well executed and much appreciated by football
fans. During the year the band participated in a two-day festival at Paulding,
Ohio and acted as host to a number of bands from other schools at our annual
Band Festival on May 5.
Mr. Assenheimer ably directed the band. He was assisted by the following
officers: Robert McClain, president, Paul Hildebrand, vice-president, Richard
Schoenberger, secretary and treasurer, and Creighton Moon, librarian. The drum
majors were Patricia Cornely and Creighton Moon.
We, the senior members ot the band, wish to express our appreciation to Mr.
Assenheimer for his able leadership. In parting we wish the band much success
in the years to follow.

THE SWING BAND, THE SOPHISTICATED SWINGSTERS
ot U. S. H. S., has become quite popular with the student body. It has furnished
music tor school parties and was in demand tor numerous functions outside ot
The band was composed oi eleven members. The leader of the group was
Charles Pagnard. This year the band was fortunate in having the assistance of
Mr. Assenheimer who willingly aided them twice a week in rehearsals.
THE SENIOR ORCHESTRA
is one of the finest organizations of our school. Ot all the fine arts, music is per-
haps the most uplifting and the most inspirational to both the player and the
Thirty-one boys and girls met three times a Week, under the direction of Mr.
Assenheimer for the purpose ot becoming better musicians. One had only to listen
to a selection by the orchestra to know that much progress was being made.
Annually the orchestra elects otticers to guide them in their work. This year
James Moon served as president, Creighton Moon as vice-president, Virginia Hol-
lanshead as secretary and treasurer, and Barbara Bowman as librarian.

THE PEP BAND
has completed its second successful year under the leadership ot Mr. Assenheimer.
It you were a basketball tan you have both seen and heard them at the games.
Students followed the pulsating rhythm ot their music down to the big gym tor
trequent pep meetings during the year.
The Pep Band was composed ot one or more members from each section ot the
Senior Band. This organization has helped to create the will-to-win at pep meet-
ings and at basketball games. Whenever enthusiasm, plus a lot of noise was
needed, the members ot the pep band were on hand to supply a quantity of both.
Without them school lite would be much too quiet and dull, so we are hoping that
they will be with us again next year.
Melody Takes Form
THE SENIOR CHORUS
and the glee clubs of U. S. H. S. have Worked diligently to bring forth and to pre-
sent harmony that is satisfying and pleasing. Under the able direction of Mr.
Assenheimer, voices have been developed and talent has been discovered.
The Senior Chorus is composed of both boys and girls who are selected from
the two glee clubs. This year the chorus boasts of forty-seven members and a very
efficient pianist, Jane Herr. The group, along with the various instrumental organ-
izations of our school, participated in many programs presented in the high school
auditorium. We are proud of the achievements of the Senior Chorus.
THE SENIOR BOYS' GLEE CLUB
fully realized that "Without a song the clay would never end" so they proceeded to
sing our blues away Whenever an opportunity was provided. Thirty-eight boys,
some very tall and some very short, some with deep voices and some with scarcely
any voice at all, met each Thursday With their instructor, Mr. Assenheimer. They
sang spirituals, southern melodies, classical scores, and ditties ot every sort with
all the enthusiasm and vigor of modern youth. In passing, all We can say is that
We are sorry We did not have an opportunity to hear these aspiring young artists
THE SENIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
afforded musical training for those who were interested in voice culture. This year
forty-nine girls, under the capable direction of Mr. Assenheimer, took advantage of
the opportunities afforded by this musical organization. The girls sang for school
programs, and their selections were much appreciated by the audience.
The girls met once each Week in the auditorium for practice. Virginia Hol-
lanshead ably accompanied the group on the piano. From this group of girls and
from the Boys' Glee Club, members of the Senior Chorus were selected.
Music Hath Charms
THE JUNIOR CHORUS
has had an interesting calendar of events during the year. For several months the
chorus studied the music and the customs of many foreign countries. Octavo work
proved tolbe another popular study for the girls. The chorus, which met twice a
week under the able direction of Miss Artz, was divided into three sections-first
and second sopranos and altos. This group did considerable three-part singing
and enjoyed it very much.
As a result of the training received in this musical organization, the members
of the Junior Chorus have enriched their knowledge and appreciation of music.
THE JUNIOR BAND,
a group of eager lads and lassies, worked diligently this year in order to improve
their technique and to increase their knowledge of instrumental music. Most of
these young musicians have fond hopes of becoming members of the Senior Band
as soon as that opportunity arrives.
Our school offers its students various educational activities in addition to regu-
lar class work. The Junior Band, directed by Mr. Assenheimer, offers younger
students, who are musically inclined, an opportunity to prepare themselves for
more advanced musical training. In addition to the educational value of such
training, much pleasure is derived from the regular rehearsals, and a co-operative
spirit is fostered among the members of the band.
THE MAIN CORRIDOR IN THE UNION BUILDING
serves as a thoroughfare for faculty members and students. The office of our
superintendent is located near the center of this corridor. Here Mr. Moore may be
found at his desk ready to listen to our problems and willing to help us solve our
At the west end of this lengthy hallway is located the office and the classroom
of our principal. Mr. Houpt stands steadfast at the wheel working out the problems
of our school and guiding many pupils along the proper paths of knowledge.
What finer example of school life could be found than this Corridor along
which students may meet fellow classmates, consult members of the faculty, read
a bit in the library, secure a textbook, or even gossip a bit between classes?
Fellowship and Fun
was the theme ot the Girl Reserves this year. The meetings, which were designed
to develop the personality ot each girl, were in charge ot committees under the
guidance of cabinet officers. During the year speakers were heard on such sub-
ject as: health, good grooming, charm, and etiquette.
This organization, under the supervision ot the adviser, Miss Pease, and the
assistant adviser, Miss Alban, endeavored to give its members outside activities
which were educational and entertaining. The most outstanding of these activities
were: the annual Gypsy l-like, the Hiddies' Christmas Party, the Leap Year Party,
the Mother-Daughter Banquet, and the Senior Breakfast. The Girl Reserves also
sponsored a play, "The Other Ghost."
To create triendship among the girls, the Big Sister idea, a plan whereby the
senior members took charge ot the pledges, was carried out. The year's program
was concluded with a second Gypsy Hike, at which time the otticers tor the en-
suing year were installed.
F. P. A. ACTIVITIES
for the year were varied, educational, and interesting. Each student had a super-
vised practice in addition to his project program. An indexed notebook that is
growing into a usable work was begun by each member of the organization.
The local and county corn-husking contest last fall, the Oratorical Contest, the
Parliamentary Procedure Team, the Apple and Potato Judging teams, and the pest
hunt were outside activities participated in by the class.
The winning ot the Sixth District basketball championship was an outstanding
accomplishment for the F. F. A.
"I believe in my own ability to work etticiently and to think clearly," was the
motto for the year.
A PROGRESSIVE HI-Y CLUB
has completed another very interesting year. The increased interest, which came
as a result of a strong membership drive last fall, brought into the club a large
number ot new boys, all pledged to "create, establish, and extend throughout the
high school and the community high standards of Christian living." Their motto
was "Clean speech, clean scholarship, clean living, and clean athletics."
The members of the club took part in the various meetings, parties, and swims
which were held throughout the year. They were the guests ot the Girl Reserves
at a Leap Year Party.
The officers this year were: Paul Smythe, president, Herman Spellerberg, vice-
president, Tom Bowman, secretary, and James Moon, treasurer. Mr. Tschantz was
Progress and Culture
THE PHONETIC WRITERS' CLUB
is an organization of the Senior Shorthand students. New views of business life
are brought to the members through interesting speakers who hold responsible
business positions. In this Way the members become familiar with the require-
ments that are to be met before they can successfully hold commercial positions.
The officers for the year Were: Carl Schwabel, president, Virginia Wilson, Vice-
president, Mary Louise Blair, secretary-treasurer. Miss Jean Golling is the sponsor.
THE PURPOSES OI-' EL CIRCULO CASTELLANO
de Cortez y La Sociedad Internacional de Las Estudiantes are: a more enlightened
Americanism through an appreciation of the Spanish origin of a significant part of
our national culture, an effective substitute for travel as a means for achieving
desirable interests, attitudes, and appreciation in the field of Spanish and Spanish-
American cultures, and a background in worthy attitudes, interests, and opportun-
ities for integration with other fields of the curriculum and with community life.
Excluding Haiti, Brazil, and the few small British, French and Dutch colonies,
Spanish is the language of all of the Western world south of the United States. The
students had correspondence with pupils in these various countries, thus increas-
ing their knowledge of the Spanish people and their language.
Helen Bils led the group as president, with the help df Ted Blaser as vice-
president, Mary Louise Blair as secretary, Robert McClain as treasurer, and the
entire club as assistants. Miss Helen Pease was the adviser of the club.
CICERO AND VERGIL
would probably fancy this group above all others. The Latin Club, Sodalitas
Latina, was composed of third and fourth-year students. The group enjoyed sev-
eral interesting meetings at the homes of various members.
The officers for the club were: Edwin Clinger, president, Anita Walton, vice-
president, Patricia Vivian, treasurer, and Richard Swoverland, secretary. Miss
Erma Stearns was the class instructor and club adviser.
Learning By Doing
W n n
THE OFFICE WORKERS'
group is composed of volunteer workers from the various typing classes. They
constitute a staff which very cheerfully aids Miss Slemmer and Miss Golling in
carrying out the innumerable clerical duties ot the school. Their work consists of
making up and distributing the daily absentee records, distributing mail, typing
copies of tests, plays, essays, songs, and other material tor the teachers and tor
many organizations of the community, cutting stencils for programs and tickets tor
school and church entertainments. The Office Workers give unselfishly ot their
time and energy, and we wish to express the school's appreciation ot them.

A BOYS' SAFETY PATROL
was organized in the fall ot 1958 tor the purpose ot protecting school children.
This organization proved so successful that it Was continued a second year.
Seven high-school boys, under the supervision ot Irvin Tschantz, made up the
patrol. Ray Young, James Kauble, and Justin Walton were on duty in the morning
and again in the evening. Charles Slemrner, Richard Schoenberger, Richard
Swoverland, and Edward Strasser had charge of noon-hour patrol duties.
In addition to guarding crossings near the school, these boys made themselves
very useful on the playground. The patrol served faithfully in all kinds ot
weather. The work ot this organization is much appreciaied, and the boys are to
be commended tor their fine work.

MEMBERS OF THE ATHLETIC BOARD
spent much time and effort endeavoring to give all boys and girls who wish to
participate in some form of athletics an opportunity to do so. It is through this
board that games are scheduled, equipment purchased, letters awarded, and the
athletic program, in general, determined.
The board this year was composed of Mr. Cope, director, Mr. Houpt, secretary-
treasurer, Mr. Osborn, member of the board of education, Mr. Gottfried, faculty
manager, Miss Miner, girls' physical education, Mr. Henderson, basketball coach,
and Mr. Pierson, football coach.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES
broke the monotony of classroom routine twice a week. A large number of girls
registered for these classes, and Miss Miner endeavored to make the program
varied and interesting.
The principal sports were: basketball, volley-ball, tumbling, and dancing.
When the weather permitted, baseball, soccer baseball, and other outdoor games
For the benefit of the entire school, intramural tournaments in basketball and
volley-ball were held.
The physical education classes gave demonstrations of their work between
halves at several basketball games this year.
BOYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES
this year were made up of eighty boys ranging from the seventh to the twelfth
At the beginning of the year the boys were supervised by I-'red Pierson, but
due to his resignation Coach Dave Henderson took charge of the work.
The boys were divided into tour classes with class leaders for each group.
These squads served as competitive teams in the various sports which were a part
of their class work. Early spring called for tumbling, baseball, track, and field
work as well as fundamental group and squad games.

Our football squad proved itself a dependable and a hard-fighting team on
the gridiron. With only a few exceptions, the team returned to the showers after
each game with spirits high and with another victory won.
An outstanding event ot the season was the Rams' victory over that practi-
cally undefeated Carey eleven, although the odds were all on the Blue and White.

THE HARDING-UPPER TILT,
our season's opener, proved to be an
exciting and scrappy game. Under
the guidance of two new coaches, the
team treked to Harding High School.
The Upper Rams were outplayed by a
larger and more experienced team,
and they lost by a 34 to 12 count.
THE LA RUE-UPPER TILT
found the Rams brimming over with
determination. Upper plowed into the
LaRue team, and with ease defeated
them 60 to 0.
THE ST. WENDELIN-UPPER TILT
gave the team a jolt that they won't
forget. The Rams went to Fostoria
rated two to one the better team, and
played a decisive game for four quar-
ters. However, when the final gun
was fired, the cards had turned in
favor of the Saints. Score 13 to 0.
THE CALVERT-UPPER TILT
represented one of the best come-
backs of the season when Upper sur-
prised the over-confident Calvert
team. The Rams accomplished a phe-
nomenal feat by tying the powerful
Tiffin-Calvert championship team 7
THE CAREY-UPPER CONTEST,
THE MADISON-UPPER TILT
brought disappointment to the Rams
who journeyed to Mansfield again
rated to win. Outplaying their rivals
and leading 7 to 6 at the half, Upper
failed to score in the second half and
lost 13 to 7.
THE MARYSVILLE-UPPER TILT
resulted in the biggest defeat of the
season. The Rams encountered a two-
hundred pound team. A third of Up-
per's men were on the injured list. De-
feat was almost inevitable. The final
score read 27 to 0 in favor of Marys-
THE FOREST-UPPER TILT
brought Upper's team back into its
own territory and to teams of its own
size. The Rams showed football fans
what they could do by defeating
Forest 6 to 0.
THE MT. BLANCHARD-UPPER TILT
proved that a team cannot be judged
by the number of games lost and won.
We dislike to admit it, but the Mt.
Blanchard team defeated the Rams 20
to 6 on Upper's own field.
an annual Armistice Day event between Carey and Upper, was a game long to
be remembered. Both teams had considerable at stake-reputations, personal
pride, the county championship, and best of all, a beautiful new trophy.
From the sound of the opening gun, every player was on his toes giving
everything he had. When the final gun sounded, Upper's team quietly packed up
its paraphernalia, the "trophy," and thirteen points and came home proud victors
after a hard-fought battle.

Dick Guenther, a sophomore, rated varsity this year and showed much ability as a

During the basketball season an intramural basketball program was arranged.
Each class and the faculty were represented. These games were played every
Tuesday after school and provided much entertainment for both spectators and
participants. The final figures went something like this: the ninth grade won for
junior high, and the tenth grade won for senior high.
Immediately following the basketball season, the annual foul-shooting contest
took place. Frank Robey starred for the senior-high boys, Kenneth McKee for the
junior-high boys, and Gertrude Myres took first place among the girls.
A new sport will enter U. S. H. S. this spring. Horseshoe pitching teams are
to be organized, and many enthusiastic players are anxious to enter into this out-
Due to the fact that U. S. H. S. will have no regulation baseball team this
spring, an interclass baseball schedule is being arranged by Coach Henderson.
The junior high boys will compete with the senior-high boys for the championship.
On the whole, the athletic program in our school has been a successful one.
Many of the boys and the girls will review the Various events of the year with
pleasure. May we take this opportunity to express our thanks to those who have
made better athletics possible in our school during 1939-1940.
All things must have a beginning. The 1940 Indian Village had its beginning
at a Senior meeting in the fall, when LaVerne Weatherholtz was elected Editor-in-
Chief. A very efficient staff was promptly organized with Robert McClain as
business manager. Under the direction of Miss Hetzel, operations soon began in
The photography staff, which was managed by Thomas Bowman, began its
work quite early in the year. This group found itself confronted with many diffi-
culties as it tried to arrange schedules for the pictures of all the classes and organ-
izations in U. S. H. S. Long hours were spent in attempting to get just the right
Meanwhile, the advertising solicitors under the supervision of Arthur Wheeler
were busy. They found that they, too, had no easy task. Working at odd hours,
and sometimes under trying circumstances, this group contributed greatly to the
financial success of our annual.
Soon after the second semester began, Paul Smythe met with his sales group
and mapped out a campaign. The Senior Class was divided into several groups.
The annual salesmen, with the help of the entire class, made an intensive canvass
of the school and the local community for they were determined to sell three
hundred copies of the 1940 Indian Village.
All of this time, the editorial staff had been busily arranging the materials and
pictures, composing interesting White-ups, and assembling the book. The planning
of a suitable "dummy" was a I-lerculean task according to the editor, but each
member of the staff was assigned some definite part, and the work went forward
without too many hitches. The sound judgment of Ann Miller, the assistant editor
proved invaluable to the staff as it labored over editorial and financial problems
during the year.
The treasurer, Miriam Will, had considerable responsibility, but she proved
herself to very efficient and helpful in handling the financial problems connected
with the publication of our year book.
The Annual Staff, with the generous assistance of Miss Hetzel, our adviser,
has published a book which should serve as a lasting memorial for this year's
The Editor-in-Chief wishes to take this opportunity to thank the members of
his staff and Miss Hetzel for their co-operation and assistance in making the publi-
cation of the 1940 Indian Village possible.

Senior Class History
Hear Yel Hear Yel We, the Class of 1940, do hereby announce our departure
from these halls oi learning. In the past tour years We have striven to set new
standards ot scholarship, and now, as we sally forth, we leave behind us this
standard as a goal tor lower classmen.
Seldom has there been a class quite so conspicuous for its scholarship rating
and for its participation in school activities. Didn't We in our freshman and sopho-
more years give parties which were highlights of the season? As juniors we pro-
duced that never-to-be-torgotten play, "The Spy." Moreover, we upheld the tra-
dition ot U. S. H. H. by banqueting the seniors royally.
But it was as seniors that we really shone. Fleeting glimpses ot the outstand-
ing events reveal the benefit movie, the senior party, and the delightful reception
given to us by the junior class. Finally, the 1940 Indian Village Annual which we
edited will serve as a memorial to mark our passing.
Graduation will part us as a class, but we shall always remember that we once
worked and played together, and that our motto was "Whatever is worth doing at
all, is worth doing well."
For twelve long years welve gone to school
And studied books and minded riilesg
Walked back and forth through heat and snow,
And iffatehed 'vacations come and go.
We'i:e studied hard to pass our tests,
Get good grades and all the restg
And now that we are safely through
It's up to as what next to do.
Whatever we do, letls do it well,
So that future generations will tell
That the Class of 'Forty stood high in line,
And never since has ceased to shine.

"Love levels all ranks," said the Admiral when he asked the captain's daughter
to marry him. However, Josephine had other ideas and aided by the crew oi
H. M. S. Pinatore, she attempts to elope with a sailor, Ralph Rackstraw. They are
caught and Ralph is put in the brig.
Suddenly the captain and Ralph find that they have exchanged places when
it is revealed that their identities are mixed. The captain changes his mind about
rank at once, since his daughter, Josephine, is now the daughter ot a common
sailor. Thus she is free to make her choice and is married to Ralph without furthe:

A vice-president of a bank does not have much time to manage a family, so
Richard Early leaves this to his wife, Emily. After having been shielded for many
years, the children rebel against the established order of their lives, and attempt
to think for themselves. One son, Dick, wants to get married, but his family per-
suaded him against the venture.
During the vacation of their parents the children take over the household. The
new lack of discipline intoxicates them, and Hope, the eldest, realizes their inabil-
ity to cope with the financial problems brought up by unexpected emergencies.
She calls in a close friend, Sanford Welles, who comes to their aid. Just as he
snatches their crumbling world from chaos, Richard and Emily return from their
cruise. They detect nothing wrong, and compliment the children on their good
management. The children think it a good policy to say nothing of their trials.

Attorneys for the Class of 240.
It is the glamourous, invigorating, colorful autumn of Nineteen Hundred and
Sixty-three. It is a time of great turmoil and intense interest. Arthur Wheeler has
recently been elected governor of Ohio. Junior Iles has finally graduated from
good old U. S. H. S. These two events are memorable, but there are many more
On a particularly bright sunny morning a luxurious limousine drives up to
my large estate and out steps Don Reynolds and his wife, the former Mary Jayne
Bricely. They are accompanied by their eight children. Don, after bidding his
wife and children to explore the place and have a good time, invites me to go for
a ride. I am amazed to learn that his car is equipped with the latest revolutionary
inventions of Professors Edwin Clinger and Herman Spellerberg.
Don presses a button and instantly the wheels fold under the car and we are
flying through the air. Looking down, I understand the need for our sudden
ascent. Blockacling the road is a WPA project. As we are still flying low, I can
easily make out Morris Gillespie, Gale Smith, Byron Lay, and Andrew Larick
stretched out beneath a shade tree. Farther along Francis Hetzel is busily shovel-
ing dirt. We are forced to admit that this is a phenomenon, but no wonder he is
so busy! Directly behind him stands the boss, Junior Snyder.
We next fly over the new state prison. Don wants to stop to visit his old side-
kicks, Eugene Bower, George Pfeifer, and Bob Johns, but we decide that it is too
late. We have just time to reach New York where we plan to hear Charles
Pagnard's symphony orchestra. In our Clinger Special it is merely a matter of
minutes until we reach the large city.
As we walk down the street we notice Ruby William's millinery shop. Just as
We pass by the door we are halted by a familiar voice. Inside the shop sits
Edwina Dumm. Chester Shambaugh is vainly trying to find just the right hat for
Edwina. It was her dissatisfied voice that we had heard as she discarded the
We hurry on to the theater as our time is growing short. Inside the door we
are greeted by the owner, LaVerne Weatherholtz, who seats us in his own box.
We manage to sit through a tap dance by Evelyn Clark and Jacqueline Laucher,
but we quietly go backstage when Ann Miller offers a vocal solo. In a private
interview Ann reveals that she seldom rehearses before a performance. We don't
doubt her word.
We return to our box in time to hear the Pagnard Orchestra present several
numbers. Jane Herr shows that she has lost none of her former musical ability as
she plays on her piano, a graduation gift.
During intermission we meet, among the crowd, the ping-pong coach at Har-
vard, Fred Binau. Ruth Dumm and Rita Ann Dannenhauer tell us that they have
just returned from Reno. Ted Blaser, Paul Smythe, and Robert McClain have just
put their heads together and are manufacturing a new high-grade explosive for
the government. My! what a place this is for gossip. Oh, yes! Paul still has his
Model A. Perhaps he keeps it as a reminder of former days. We next encounter
Fred Balduf who complains bitterly about a business rival's tactics. It seems they
are both in the barber-shop business, and his rival has just opened a shop next
door. We do not understand why this should worry him until we discover that
his competitor is none other than Betty .lane Walton.
We are about to leave when the renowned newspaper reporter, Paul Pagnard,
comes in. How he can dash off the dope! He tells us that Maxine Clements is
lecturing on Greek mythology in Sleepy Hollow, that Joan Kuenzli is a circus
manager, While Mary Louise Blair and Helen Rangeler are the queens of the "big
top." Helen Bils tried to teach Spanish but has given it up as a bad job, Richard
Beinbrech was an elevator operator in a Chicago hotel until recently when he mar-
ried an English heiress who had been living at the hotel. Paul also informed us
that Dale Hudson refuses to sign a contract with the New York Yankees unless
they double his salary, that Tom Bowman is modeling for a New Work artist, that
Virginia Wilson has rejected a movie contract because the salary was only a
measly S7500 a year, that Carl Schwabel and Leota Belle Hall have just eloped,
that Eugene Bower has been released on parole, and that Virgene Hines has
entered a figure-skating contest. Paul says that his newspaper is owned and pub-
lished by Richard Cornely and Bernard Hin.
ln the crowd we encounter Mary Alice Lucas who has won this year's beauty
contest. We meet Agatha Frey who says that she is co-starring with Tom Stephan
on a nation-wide television broadcast. We also hear that Hazel Craycratt and
Miriam Will are engaged in secretarial work for Governor Wheeler. Nobody
seems to know who has the inside track as he takes one secretary out one night and
the other the following evening.
I am completely worn out by this time, and it is a pleasure to return home.
We are met at the door by my wife, who, I forgot to say is none other than Barbara
Fritchie. She wants Don and I to go to Aloysius Krantz' store to get a nickel's
worth of sweet anise, but we refuse. I'm sleepy and l know that if we go we will
have to stop at Paul Myers' farm to inquire how the hybrid plants in his extensive
greenhouse are maturing. Therefore, we park Don's "fancy job" in a safe place
and spend a peaceful morning in dreamless slumber.

fMiss Addie Schoenbergerl, the crowd was kept in a constant ripple of laughter at
the many funny incidents occurring in the fast moving comedy.

formance indicated that another play will no doubt be offered in the future. Pro-
ceeds of the play were used on a fifty-fifty basis by the band and the athletic de-
