1 Smith, Lavon Baxter,
ln a century whose progress has been char-
acterized by speed'-streamlined cars, auto-
gyros. the new deal-on land, water, and in
the air. we still have time for reminiscing.
ln spite of our fast-moving age we still en-
joy remembering old friends, past pleasures
and, most of all, our school days.
Our class, which is about to leave Van
ll'ert High School. brought with it a number
of things that will endure long after we have
gone. Our foremost contribution is the Stu-
dent Council. Ylle have also introduced the
Honor Study Hall to our school. VVe brought
with us,-too, a number of our most respected
faculty members. lt will give us pleasure,
when we are out in the work-a-day world to
remember our lasting contributions to our
We will take many worthwhile things away
with us as well as leaving a few valuable
things behind. Une valuable thing which we
take with us is the memory of the pleasant
and profitable companionship of both the
students and the faculty members. Wle have
learned a lesson in honor which will be a
benefit to us always. VVe have learned to be
persevering which should be a valuable aid
to us throughout our entire lives. To this
school we owe the development of our char-
acter. If we have learned the lessons whicll
it has tried to teach us we have an unlimited
gain-if we have failed to learn these lessons
our loss is incalculable.
Our last contribution to our school is this
Excalibur which we present to you as a
memory book. This book will keep your high
school activities forever in your memories.
To you, this senior class, we wish all the
success which the world has to offer. May
your lives bc always profitable and success-

To Coach Glenn H. Livingston who has worthily
deserved our esteem and gratitude, we gratefully dedi-
cate this Excalibur of 193-1-. Coach Livingston has
achieved a greater prominence for Van lVert High
School by his outstanding work in the athletic depart-
ment. In this age of specialization when surgeons know
little but surgery, when chemists know little but chem-
istry, and most men are highly specialized in a particular
field, we have on our faculty a man who is a specialist,
and a good one too, in two major professions, coaching
and teaching. Coach Livingston has fostered a spirit of
sportsmanship and good fellowship not only among the
members of his respective teams, but likewise among the
whole student body. Our dedication, we think, has been
appropriately made to this man to whom we owe so much.

Congressional Record of the Term 1931-34
A new senate! According to law, a new group enters the senatorial chamber
of higher learning each fall, so that is nothing to be proud of.
But !-What has this large group of men and women from the four Congres-
sional Districts done, while serving a four-year term on the benches?
The first year these new senators, entering upon their careers quite ignorant
of their knowledge and quite as knowing of their ignorance QFD, were appointed to
their respective committee rooms and projects by Chairman Krick. In order to in-
sure efficiency and order in the business meetings Senator Gribler was elected as
President of the first-year Senators. This part of our term was filled with work
and business, and many outside activities.
The next fall the Senate again convened, with a few new faces and some gone,
but in general re-election seemed to hold its place. With Mr. Gribler at the chair,
we again resumed work and play, some of the politicians being on committees to in-
vestigate Plane Geometry, Biology, and such subjects.
And so on into the third year, when these politicians and senators began to feel
important. In the spring of this term some of our group entertained the fair capital
city with their dramatic ability, for the efforts of Jeanne Downs, Lillian Sheeran,
Richard Heydinger, Dudley Pomeroy, Miss West, and many others produced the
memorable "Erstwhile Susan." Then came the grand Congressional Ball, when our
group of senators entertained those whose full term expired in 1933. The auditorium
of the Department of Education building was transformed into a cool, green woods,
where the men spent a lovely evening dancing with their beautiful ladies.
Then the Senior year came! The pounding of the gavel in September found
the men and women ready for this year, with its business, both political and social.
VVhen a call was issued for a committee to investigate and engage in football, Gerald
Ackom, David Evans, Melvin Gardner, John McKeddie, Thomas Edwards, John
Agler, Paul Alban, Richard Bebout, Daniel Lown, and Gordon Todd proved very
active in this field.
Then as able workers in basketball we find Gerald Ackom, Gordon Dasher, and
Elden Hawk. Among the women who have engaged in this same sport are Norma
Kouts, Frances Horn, Eileen Clifton, Alice VVyandt, Thelma Klein, Carlesta Pflum,
Marguerite Conn, Dorothy Dippery, Jeanne Downs, and Patricia Gauvey. Both
groups of these athletes showed much ability and sportsmanship.
By a vote of the entire Senior assembly the following were chosen for their re-
spective offices: Gerald Ackom as the best athlete: Gordon Todd and Harriette
English as the biggest flirts, Lionel Miller and Lillian Sheeran as the best dressed
in the senate, John E. Agler as the most handsome man, and Ruth Wilson as the
most beautiful girl. Our most popular congresswoman is Lillian Sheeran, and
Maurice Gribler is the most popular man, the most brilliant person is Agnes Pennell,
and the wittiest, Harry YVise. John E. Agler and Lillian Sheeran are the most de-
voted couple, while Lionel Miller and Jane VVatterson are the most dignified . Miss
Dorothy West is our favorite instructor.
The Seniors who for their scholastic records, service, leadership, and character
have attained the National Honor Society, are the following: Maurice Gribler,
Frances Horn, Princess Dippery, Sue VVelch, Jerry Collette, Ralph Halliwill, Agnes
Pennell, Paul Alban, Lillian Sheeran, Lavon Baxter, Dorothy Dippery, David Evans,
Ireta Elder, Eleanor Feigert, Patricia Gauvey, Dudley Pomeroy, Charles Shick, and
"Leave It to Psmith" was the dramatic performance of the Senior class of this
capital city in 1934, with Frances Horn, Sue VVelch, Jeanne Downs, and Dudlebf
Pomeroy being the main characters.
Thus the term of these senators comes to a close in May of 193-11. VVith many
thoughts of the times spent in this Senate House, and with much gratitude to all
those who have aided us in our work, we, the now former senators, wish each other
the best of luck and separate to find success and happiness in the future of our
careers, -AGNES PENNELL.
This has been a highly successful year for the V. W. H. S. Band with its sixty members.
The Band played for the following events during the year: Football games, basketball games,
spring opening, and World's Fair Train. Two concerts were given February 11 and April
25. The Band participated in the annual Northwestern Ohio Band Festival at Bucyrus on
May 18 and 19. Then carrie the Booster trip and broadcast for Peony Festval in June. Mr.
Wolf is the conductor. ORCHESTRA
The Van Wert High School Orchestra of 1933-34 is composed of twenty-five talented stu-
dents under the direction of Leonard Wolf. The Chorus and Orchestra gave a joint concert
January 21. The Orchestra played selections for the Junior and Senior Class plays. We gave
a concert for both the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs.
Van Wert High School Chorus, with its one hundred and fifteen members under the direc-
tion of Mr. James Jones has completed a busy year.
In October, 1933, the Chorus presented an operetta entitled Paul Revere, based on the
story of that famous Revolutionary character. The solo parts were taken by Louise King,
Mary Clark, Phyllis Rush, Ruth E. Smith, Byron Dannison, Melvin Gardner, Robert Raymond,
Robert Marker, Ted Shank, Harold Hoghe and John McConahay.
Sixty picked members competed March 18 in the Eisteddfod at Wapakoneta. As addi-
tional activities the Chorus has given two Sunday afternoon concerts and has appeared before
the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs. THE S. pl R. CLUB
In November, 1933, the S. P. Q. R. Club QSapienta, Prudenti Atque, Reverentiaj was or-
ganized, with eleven charter members, for the purpose of creating an interest in Latin. An in-
duction was held in the Gym, March 22, to initiate the thirty new members. Regular meetings
are held on alternate Mondays.
The officers are David Heydinger, president, Helen Diener, secretary. Miss Evans is
the Club adviser- THE EXCALIBUR STAFF

The National Honor Society started the year with only seven members to carry on its four
high purposes QScholarship, Leadership, Character, and Servicel. These members were
Maurice Gribler, president, Frances Horn, vice president, Princess Dippery, secretary-
treasurer, Agnes Pennell, Ralph Halliwill, Jerry Collette and Sue Welch.
At the beginning of the second semester new members were admitted and there was a re-
election of officers. The new members are: Dudley Pomeroy ,president, Eleanor Feigert,
secretary-treasurer, Dave Evans, Dorothy Dippery, Ireta Elder, John Young, Charles Shick,
Lillian Sheeran, Paul Alban, LaVon Baxter and Patty Gauvey. Ralph Halliwill is the present
vice-president. Miss Hall is the adviser of this society.
The Senior Hi-Y has accomplished many things this year. Harold Hoghe, John Agler
QPresidentj, Melvin Gardner, Tom Edwards, Paul Ladd and Jack McKeddie were sent to
the Older Boy's Conference at Wooster.
The Hi-Y sponsored the County Basketball Banquet at which Coach Meanwell was the
guest speaker, and was one of the sponsors of the Y-Hi-Y Christmas Dance.
Alpha and Beta Y-Hi, under the leadership of Phyllis Dougal and Betty Fell, began their
year's work with the Setting Up Conference at Camp Pottowatami. Here the plans for the
year were made. A few plans carried out included the Turkey Hop, Football Banquet, Dad
and Daughter Banquet, Valentine Dance, the annual Y-Hi-Y Christmas Dance, and the en-
tertainment of Hi-Y. We filled Christmas stockings and baskets.
Our advisers were Miss Evans, Miss Ellsworth, Miss West, and Mrs. Krick.
The "V" Club tries to increase the interest in sports in our High School. Any person re-
ceiving a "V" is eligible for membership in this club.
Through the efforts of the "Vw Club, the debt of the Athletic Association has been greatly
There are seven new members in the club this year. Paul Alban is the club president.
G. A. A.
G. A. A. was one of the most active organzations in High School this year.
A few of the important things accomplished are the Penny Lunch, Hallowe'en Mixer, and
a party for charity children at Christmas time. The G. A. A. presented a trophy case to the
school this spring. ,
The members who now have "V's" are Lillian Sheeran fpresidentj, Norma Kouts, Frances
Horn, Eileen Clifton, Carlesta Pflum, Margaret Stuck, Helen Miller, Vera Krugh, Helen
Baxter, Betty Fell, Marjorie Richards. Vlisses Gleason and Gant are our advisers.
The Prom that our class gave to the Seniors of was very lovely. The deco-
rations gave the effect of a Japanese Garden lighted here and there by Japanese
lanterns strung on the trees. The entrances into this garden were wooden archways,
very cleverly designed with flowers climbing over them. This garden was enclosed
