We've Come Far
In the early part of September in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty-two,
there came to Van Wert High School from the four corners of the city, a group of bashful and
bewildered freshmen. Boys and girls alike wandered about the corridors for days hunting their
classrooms and living under the nerve-racking fear of "initiations" inspired by the gruesome
stories and threats of the upperclassmen. It was a bold, bold freslunan who ventured forth those
first few weeks after nine o'cloek in the evening. Some idea of the inexperience of those small
mortals may be gained from the fact that they actually ran when Mr. l,ehning's big voice
boomed "Hurry! Hurry !'l through the early morning corridors, As the year wore on the
freshmen became bolder and since the expected fatalities from initiations failed to develop, an
occasional freshman was seen to timidly appear at a mixer.
Came the fall of '33 and in a like manner came the Sophomore Class, a one hundred per cent
representation of the former freshmen. But lo! there was a change. No longer did they search
blankly for their rooms and no longer did they run like scared sheep at Mr. I.ehning's clarion
call. They had experience and an air of confidence that awed the freshmen who were haunted
as never before by the tales and threats of "initiation" inspired chiefly by the Sophomores.
During the year they were well represented in the various school activities.
At the beginning of the Junior-Senior year Alva Brown, the Freshlnan-Sophomore presi-
dent, was replaced by Dave Heydinger who soon moved to Bellefontaine leaving the task to
George Marsh to carry on during the Junior and Senior years.
On April 5, 1935, a play "The Little Clown" was presented by the Junior Class that estab-
lished a new high in such plays. The leading roles were taken by Helen Stuck and Bob King.
In the fall of '35 the class came back to finish in a blaze of glory, Kay Edwards was elected
president of Y-Hi and Dick Dippery, president of Hi-Y. Both organizations presented
splendid programs during the year. The High School paper, enlarged and improved, was
renamed the Scarlet Quill, and had a very successful year under Robert Comer's guidance.
The Senior Class play 'Hammer Gurton's Needle" was a tremendous success played before
a packed house. The Seniors were represented at the Prom of '36. Finally the Senior Class of
'36 presents an Excalibur heretofore unequaled due to the cooperation of Catherine King and
her loyal staf.

I have been asked to write the history of the Junior Class, consequently I shall
write the history of the best class, our class of nineteen thirty-seven. lVe are small
in number but what we lack in quantity is made up in quality. lVe are good naturcd
and take the many unjust slams thrown our way without flinching.
lVe were "green" as freshmen, of course, but that fatal color wore off as we
adjusted ourselves to the bustle of high school life.
Our Sophomore Class oflicers were: President, Charles Kennedyg Vice-President,
Lloyd Barsong Secretary and Treasurer, Annalee Murphy.
Parts in various chorus operettas were filled by Junior musicians. VVe as Juniors
received a reward of live dollars given to the class buying the highest percentage of
student tickets for the Annual Band Concert. VVe also gave our support to events
sponsored to raise money for the band's trip to VVashington this spring.
VVe chose as our president this year, Harry Gunsett, who kept us cheerful and
ready for service. Subordinate oflicers were: Vice-President, Owen Harrowg Secre-
tary, Marguerite Pondg Treasurer, Betty Shaffer. Delegates elected to Student
Council were as follows: Henry Clarke, Harry Gunsett, Owen Harrow, Don Meyette,
James Shock, Fred Fox, and Margaret Allen.
In keeping with a very recent precedent our class jewelry was chosen this year
by a committee elected by the class membership. lt consisted of Harry Gunsett,
Henry Clarke, Don Rowell, Mary Tate, Marguerite Pond. and Margaret Allen.
The varsity football and basketball teams were supported in a great measure hy
Junior boys and we are proud of their good work. The girls' interclass basketball
championship was won by the Junior girls and the high point players were Florence
Bauer. Marjorie Edwards and Margaret Shively.
Our class play was a success in every way. VVe presented "Mother Carey's Chick-
ens" with Jill King and Henry Clarke in the leading roles and the "l'ophams", played
by Sam Davis, Enid Cress and Meta Louise Dudley, furnished the comedy. In spite
of an unfortunate epidemic of mumps, which afflicted several members of the cast.
and with the cooperation of uuderstudies and the patience of our instructors. Miss
Lillian Benson and Miss Dorothy VVest, it was hailed by hearty congratulations.
Prom is an occasion in high school life which is looked forward to with great
expectation from freshmanhood. This event is almost here and we are hoping to
make our farewell to the Seniors something they will long remember. Committees
were chosen as follows: Invitation: Henry Clarke. Don Russell, Enid Cress. and
Lois Uhrich. Refreshment: Geraldine Brubaker, Juanita Bowden and Robert Mc-
Cray. Orchestra: Don Meyette. Paul Pieroni, Mary Tate. Elinor Chambers, and
Thelma Gardner. Decoration: Louise Ann Gauvey, Margaret Kear, Richard Kear,
Mary Horther, Jill King, Owne Harrow, Don Russell, Jim Shock and Annalee
Murphy. lf these members do their part and with the support of the rest of the
Junior Class it cannot help but be a success.
Honors were also won in the scholastic field. Lloyd Barson, Harry Gunsett, Louise
A11n Gauvey, Betty Shaffer and Margaret Allen were elected to the National Honor
In behalf of the Junior Class I wish to extend to Robert Atkins, Lloyd Barson,
and Don Russell a most reluctant farewell upon their leaving us to graduate with the
class of 1936. lVe are looking forward to as full and fine a Senior year as the one we
have just completed. May Van XVcrt High School always be proud of her class of

"Vl'here, ol1 where are the growing Sophomores F"
"They're all safe in the Junior Class."
This is a sample of the song which thc present Sophomores hope to be singing by
the time these words appear in print.
The Class of 1938 emerged from their verdant condition as Freshmen with a few
fatalities due to the necessary but cruel exposures which students must suffer through
the media of teachers and exams. One hundred and forty-four of us survived to
become one of the largest Sophomore classes our High School has known. The foun-
dation for our educational building had been laid and we were ready to build thereon.
All good organizations need bosses. and since the Class of 1938 is a good organiza-
tion, we proceeded at once to elect our class officers. They are Franklin Dippery,
Presidcntg Clair Buechner, Yicc-President: Dennis Kinkle, Secretaryg .lack Stettler,
Treasurer. Superintendent Diener continues as our chief architect but we were too
strenuous for contractor Krick. He looked us ovcr and departed for richer pastures
in Decatur, Indiana, and contractor Bowdle was called in from Bowling Green to
complete the work begun by Mr. Krick.
lVe believe in being in things and every school activity has had generous support
from our class. Dennis Kinklc, Lewis Kaduk, Clair Buechuer, and Gilford Ford rep-
resented ns on the football field and contributed a good share to our winning team.
On the basketball fioor it was Clair Buechner, Bill Fell, Gilford Ford, and Stanley
Ross who carried our colors. In girls' sports the honor of the class was upheld by such
stalwarts as .loan Grant, Mildred Knoll, Sara Louise Tindall, Anna Jordan, Laura
VVilkinson, Kathryn Young, Mary Bebont, Vetha Ford, Doris Houser, and Betty
Snyder. Our share in the work of the Student Council was performed 'by Mildred
Knoll, .lack Stettler, Gerald Bowers, Franklin Dippery, and Betty Snyder. During
our Freshman year Dennis Kinkle made the UV" Club. Last year we doubled that
number by adding the name of Gilford Ford. During the next two years, we expect
to multiply our present number several times. The Junior Hi-Y is under the guid-
ance of the following Sophomores: President, Bill Fellg Vice President, Bob Baxterg
Secretary, Marion Feigertg Treasurer, Eugene Feigert. The Y-Hi is directed by
Joan Grant and a capable group of Sophomore and Freshman assistants. For the
now famous Socco Tournament, we provided the champions. The Sophomore duet
composed of Knoll and Young proved invincible to all outsiders. The Band, the
Chorus, the G.A.A. and other student organizations have felt the beneficient influ-
ence of scores of Sophomore members. The motto of the Class of 1938 in school
activities is "YVe do our partf'
Through fun and frolic, toil and tribulation, we approach the half-way mark in our
high school course. The educational building which we so bravely began as Freshmen
moves toward its completion. YVe have not as yet attained but we have had a lot
of pleasure in attaining. VVhen we come together again, the care-free Sophomore will
have disappeared. ln his place you will find a sedate Junior who is already bcginning
to fccl the dignity of high school responsibility and age. VVC move forward with
pleasant anticipation. The retrospect is beautifulg the prospect is glorious. A great
warrior once spurred his hesitant soldiers by the words, 'iltaly lies beyond the Alps."
They could know no rest until they had conquered the Alps and entered Italy. The
Italy of graduation lies just beyond the Alps of our Junior and Senior years in
schools. VVC move ahead.
"Come, grow old along with mel
The best of High School is yet to be."

One day in the fall of 1935, two hundred forty freshmen began their careers as
Van Yl'ert High School students. This class was unusually large, and, with our mem-
bership, we hoped to accomplish a great deal during the next three years of our
school life. A few moved away during the school term and entered other schools.
Russell Holmes suffered the misfortune of a fall and was forced to leave school for
the remainder of the year. lve hope to have him with us next year.
lVe were like most green "l"reshies". After walking about the sehool several times
trying to appear dignified. we finally found the class room which we were expected
to occupy that period. But it was very amusing to the upper-classmen to find three
or four freshmen proudly trying to recite in a third year English or Chemistry class.
In spite of all these blunders we soon gained the respect of the upper classmen,
by taking an active part in many of the school activities.
The class mct with Mr. Rauch and Miss Armstrong as sponsors. They elected
Donald Bollenbacher, presidentg Bob Shaffer. viee-presidentg Ernestine Gallapoo,
treasurerg Bill Stuekey, secretary.
The freshmen were well represented in the Hi-Y Club. The older members of this
organization soon found that the freshmen boys were an active bunch when they
attempted to initiate them at a pot-luck supper.
-eng 1 .. . , . .. .,,.,, . .,.,,,.., ..
liarly ing the fall the girls of our class were entertained by the Y-Hi club at a
"kid" party. Later many joined the Y-Hi group and gained much pleasure and
inspiration during the years' activities.
The freshmen who desired musical training entered the chorus. Others continued
instrumental training in the band and orchestra under the capable leadership of
Mr. lVolf. The freshman chorus under Mr. Jones. assisted the senior chorus in
giving several concerts.
Our class did their part in assisting the High School band to go to lVashington
by buying and selling tickets and also by taking an active part in the entertainment
put on by the Band Fathers' and Mothers' Associations in an effort to raise the
:necessary funds. At the Box Social especially it seemed as if the freshmen boys
walked off with the lmiggest share of the boxes and the girls.
NVQ' also did our bit in the writing of the school paper.
listhcr Shaffer. Joan Coupland. Paul Yager, Billy Brown, and Donald llollenbachcr
represented the class in the Student Council.
ln the field of athletics the freshmen were very well represented. Many girls earned
points toward their letters in G. A. A.. by taking part in certain sports. ln the inter-
elass basketball tournament much interest was shown in our girls' team which tied the
seniors for second place. The boys team also did well. Many members of the class
were out for thc high school interelass sports. but all did not receive suits. Those
who held positions on the reserve basketball team were: Joe liox and Theo Sharp.
Bill Kennedy was on the football squad. .lane Gamble. .lack Klendworth were on
the cheering squad.
' EXCALIBUR 1936
This year has been a SllCf'CSSflll one in every way because of our teacllers and the
way in which the freshmen cooperated.
Oh that first day last fall,
lVhen we looked wonderingly,
All our f cmrl d hopes decreased,
Trembling so fearfully,
Laughed at by Seniors,
Crushed by the Juniors,
lVhile all the school wondered
How long we would last here.
Not so now we Stand,
But are well on our way
Nor upper vlassmen
Can iight our spirits,
Spurred on by Latin,
Strengtlutned by English,
Soon we will reawh our goal,
And shall be on the top.

lVe hope you appreciate this hook. lt is yours. Kccp it as your memory book
for the year 1935-36.
This year the administration deeided that the students should have a sehool paper
managed by a staff ehosen from the student body. A name for the paper was pieked
from about one hundred suggestions handed in by members of the student body. "The
Scarlet Quill". suggested by Robert Ferris was the name given our paper. The pur-
pose of this paper was to bring to the students of Van XVert High Sehool news of
their sehool. Through the efforts of a hard working staff and a eo-operative student
body. the "Searlet Quill" was published every three weeks and sold for three eents
a eopy. X
There is really more work in putting out a sehool paper than one might think.
Here is the sehedule whieh is gone through for every issue: Two or three days after
a previous issue a meeting of the staff is ealled. At this meeting the good and bad
points of the preeeding issue are diseussed. assignments for the next issue are made.
and the date at which time the material is due is set. When the material is brought
in it must be eorreeted by the proof readers, typed. and then reeheelied by the proof
readers. ln the meantime our hustling manager has sold the business men in our
town advertising spaee in the paper. YVhen all this material has been eolleeted. it is
arranged in a logieal order and steneils are eut. The pages are then mimeographed
and elipped together. ready to go on sale.
The staff of the "Searlet Quill" was composed of the following: l'lditor-in-Chief.
Robert Comer: Assistant liditor. Betty Shaffer: Business Manager, Lloyd liarsoug
Advisers. Mr. Mason. Miss Armstrong. Miss Hall, Miss Gauvey: Proof Readers. Miss

A great deal of credit for the success of this yearis paper is due to Mr. Mason.
IN THE AID
Music in the Air
The High School Chorus is exceptionally large this year and it has many good
voices for solos, duets and other special work.
The first big event of the year for the chorus was the presentation of their operetta,
on November 22. It was entitled "The Governor's Daughter." The cast included:

Throughout. the year various programs were given by the chorus for the Rotary
and Kiwanis Clubs.
The Senior Chorus and Orchestra gave a program for the Rotarians on December
16. It included Advent and Christmas music.
A group of girls from the chorus gave a program for the Kiwanis Club one evening
and a double quartet presented a program at another time.
The chorus aided the band in their Music and Magic concert on March 14-. This
concert was held to help finance the band trip to Washington.
Again at our Easter program the chorus offered their services. The entire group
sang several lovely numbers and special music was rendered by the double quartet.
The chorus is not taking part in an Eisteddfod this year but the band and chorus
is entering in a May festival to be held at the Marsh Foundation.
This may not sound like so much but the chorus did some worth while things and
we really had a very busy year.
Honor To Whom Honor is Due
The four cardinal principles of the National Honor Society are: Character, Schol-
arship, Leadership, and Service.
The members of the society at the beginning of the year were the following
Seniors: President, Lee Roebkeg Vice-President, George Marshg Secretary, Helen
Dienerg Isabel Strothersg Ralph Smithg John Gunn. The faculty adviser throughout
the year was Miss Hall.
W'ith such a small membership it was hard for the society to accomplish much. but
they took over the cleaning of the Study Hall books and did a good job of it.
The new members were chosen the second semester and induction serviccs were
held in Lincoln Auditorium in the form of an assembly on February 20. The follow-
ing members were taken into the society: Seniors-Helen Bollenbacher, Dewitt
Brown, Richard Dippery, Catherine Edwards, Erlene Emans, Maxine Halverson,
Beryl Harden, Mary Francis Knoll, Catharine King, Kathryn Jane Laltue, Helen
Stuck, and Mildred VVilliman. Juniors-Margaret Allen, Lloyd Barson, Louise Ann
Gauvey, Harry Gunsett, and Betty Shaffer.
lVith such a large membership we had some very interesting and successful
NVe elected otlicers for the second semester as follows: Helen Bollenbacher, Presi-
dentg John Gunn, Vice-President. and Catharine King, Secretary.
The Society took over the work of a Student Handbook for the High School. It
will contain all the needed information about our school and will be very helpful to
all students, particularly Freshmen and new students. lVe prepared the material
for the book and it is to be printed or mimeographed for use at the beginning oi'
YVe held our meetings every two weeks on Thursday afternoon at 3:45. VVe had
very good attendance at our meetings and this helped make our work more successful.
Miss Hall helped us very much on our handbook and much of the credit should
go to her.
The Student Couneil met Oetober 21. 1935. with all twentysseven members present.

the building. Plans for it were finished and the walk was eompleted by January.
'l'his year the squads were eombined with the result that there were only three
squads. Conduet. Assembly. and Soeial. The membership of eaeh squad was redueed
to a member from each of the four elasses and a ehairman.

aided by the National Honor Soeiety eompleted plans and obtained material for the
Handbook to be published next year.
lYe feel that the Student Couneil has aeeomplished some very helpful things this
year and that it will keep on doing so.
Stupendous! Colossal! Tremendous!
The Class of '36 attempted something new this year in the way of class plays.
They successfully presented the sixteenth century comedy "Gammer Gurton's Needle"
on May 22, at 8:00 P. M. in Lincoln Auditorium. This play was one of the first
English comedics and was written in 1566 by lVilliam Stevenson.
It is a farce comedy concerning the loss of a needle. QA needle in those days was
a rare luxury and it was a calamity to lose it.Q
Gammer Gurton QHelen Dienerj lost her needle while trying to sew some patches
on the hrecches of her grandson, Hodge Qltalph Srnithj. The villain, Diccon, fllavid
Millerj loves devilment and drops a hint to Gammer that her neighbor, Dame Chat
QHelen ltainsdailj has picked it up from in front of the house. lVhen Gammer,
Hodge. Cock QHow:1rd Wl'ilkinsonj, her errand boy, and Tib fCatherine Edwardsj,
Gammer's maid, are unable to find the needle anywhere, Gammer fully believes
that Dame Chat has her needle. VVhen she accuses her of this, the result is a tussle
in which Gammer is defeated. She decided to send for Dr. Rat Qhlaurice Smithj, the
curate. VVhen Dr. ltat arrives, Diccon tells him that he has seen Dame Chat with
the needle. He shows Dr. Rat a place where he may slip in and surprise her and get
the needle. Diccon had told Dame Chat that Hodge meant to steal her chickens and
so she was prepared to welcome anyone. Dr. Rat is the vietim of her preparations
and he leaves vowing to make the Bailey QRiehard Zieglerj give great punishment to
his offenders. A trial ensues and a most amazing conclusion brings the play to a
Others who helped very much in the preparation and added to the play wefre:
Maxine Humrickhous, who played the part of Doll, Dame Chat's maid, Robert
King, Norman lVermer, Lee ltocbke, Dewitt Brown, Lowell Lambert, Helen Bollen-
bacher, Edith Bebout, Lavon Milheim.
Mother Carey's Chickens turned out to be the best class play in recent years.
The story takes place in Beulah. New Hampshire. Mother Carey Qltosalyn Hat-
tryj and her children, Nancy C.lill Kingj, Gilbert Clired lioxj Kathleen, Qhlargaret
Allenj and Peter Qfiene Sharpj have all staked their fortunes with the Yellow House
in Beulah. Ossian Popham QSam Davisj and Maria Popham, Osh's nagging wife
fEnid CressQ, with their daughter, l.allie Joy QMeta I.. Dudleyj give them no little
aid and enjoyment.
Nancy and Gilerbt. always curious as are all young people. wish to know what is
in the brick oven by the Hreplace. In the oven they find a portrait of an old lady.
Around the portrait was wrapped a blue paper with a will written on it, leaving the
Yellow House to Tom Hamilton. Nancy decides to write to Mr. I.em Hamilton
to find out if the house really belongs to Tom Hamilton fHenry Clarkej who is in
The "yellow peril" as Nancy terms Tom. is found to be on his way to America.
Nancy and Gilbert think he is coming to take away the house. He unexpectedly
arrives when Nancy is on the table, trying desperately to reach the chandelier. Tom
helps her and then his identity is revealed. Nancy is taken aback but recovers herself
quickly and invites Tom to the party that night.
Tom is eager to see his present but Julia QAnalee Murphyj, a snobbish cousin,
while looking at the portrait is startled by Tom's voice upstairs. She drops the blue
paper. tells Tom that Nancy is in love with Ralph Thurston, Qllon Meyettej a school
teacher. She also tells him of the will. Tom, very much disappointed. absent-mindedly
throws the blue paper in the fire, then takes an abrupt leave of Nancy.
Dr. l,ord Cllon Rauchj, an austere, proud man. who thinks nothing of his son
Cyril's Ql.loyd Barsonj painting ability is convinced by Mrs. Carey that he has talent.
Dr. l.ord and his son leave as real pals.
Tom Hamilton arrives in town meanwhile. Nancy is afraid that he has come to
take the Yellow House. lVhen he arrives Julia repents her actions and clears up the
situation. Nancy and Tom then come to an understanding and it finally ends in
love and kisses.

Martial Music Everywhere
The High School Band is composed of sixty members this year and is, as usual,
under! the leadership of Leonard YVolf. Tl1is has been an outstanding year for the
band as it has taken part in most of the High School activities. including football,
basketball, etc. It also presented two concerts on March Alf, and April 24-, which
included novelty numbers, marches, and concert numbers.
Two organizations were formed this year to help the band. They are the Band
Mothers' Association and the Band Fathers' Association. Both sponsored many ac-
tivities in order to secure money to give the band a trip to YVashington, D. C. The
business organizations and the general public cooperated splendidly. The band left
Thursday, April 30, and returned Sunday, May 3. During the trip many places of
interest were visited among which were VVashington's monument, ltfount Vernon, the
VVhite House, Arlington Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, Bureau of Printing and En-
graving, the United States Capitol Building and many others. The greatest event
was, however, when the band broadcasted on the Farm and Home Hour over a
Next came the Annual Northwestern Band Festival, which was held at Shelby,
May 8th and 9th, in which our band took part.
VVe believe that this has been one of the most successful years for the band, and we
hope the good fortune will continue. Each year the band loses many valuable players
when the seniors leave but it takes only a short time for the newcomers to fill these
places just as those now leaving filled the vacancies left by the seniors before them.
The Jazz Band was started soon after the school year opened and after a few
changes has developed into a first rate dance band. The members of the orchestra are
as follows: Jim Shock and Dick Blanke, Trumpetsg Owen Harrow, Trombone, Don
May, Bass, Kenneth Stegmeier, Don Foote and Jack Klendworth, Saxophonesg Bob
Loe, Piano, Bob Shaffer, Drums, Johnnie Rauch, Leader.
The Jazz Band played for all school dances and also filled a few outside engage-
ments. In their first public appearance, an amateur contest, held at Schine's Theatre,
the orchestra won second prize. They were asked to return during the followfing
ten weeks to play for several acts. They have also taken a job playing for the United
Commercial Travelers Convention in June during the Peony Festival. The orchestra
has the regulation dance orchestra fronts which add a lot to their appearance. They
have adopted the name "Cougar Melodiersu and we all hope they continue as they
have started, successfully.

The Junior Hi-Y closed the school year of 1935-36 upon one of the best years of
its history. An election was held at the first meeting which resulted in the election of
the following officers: Bill Fell, president, Bob Baxter, vice-presidentg Marion Fei-
gert, Secretary, and Eugene Feigert, treasurer. Our advisers were: Mr. Rauch,
Mr. Bollenbacher, and Rev. Lamy.
All of the club members benefited in some way from our programs: Religiously,
by the discussions led by Rev. Lamyg intellectually, by the talks of outside speakers,
socially, by suppers, banquets, swims, and other forms of entertainment.
Some of the highlights of the year were the Older Boys Conference at Tiffin, which
our president, Bill Fell, attended, and a potluck supper to which we invited the
Celina Jr. Hi-Y.
Our purpose is, "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and com-
munity high standards of Christian character," and our platform, clean speech, clean
scholarship, clean living, and clean athletics. By this method we have attempted to
make our members an asset to the community and better citizens of the United States
FRANKLIN DIPPERY, '38
The orchestra, composed of 25 musicians and under the direction of Leonard Wolf,
is an organization not often heard of but quite an asset to our High School. It has
played on several occasions this year-namely, the operetta presented by the chorus,
the Junior and Senior class plays, and before different organizations. In addition to
these, several of the members appeared as individuals before the Kiwanis and Rotary
Although the orchestra is not often called upon to furnish music-it is always on
hand when needed.
The Y-Hi Club is a chapter of the international Girl Reserve organization which
has as its purpose: "To find and give the best." Its emblem is a blue triangle whose
three sides symbolize Mental, Spiritual, and Physical strength. The Y-Hi club of
Van Wert High School is divided into the Alpha group and the Beta group, composed
of the girls from the two lower and two upper classes, with Joan Grant, president:
Harriet Kenyon, vice-president, Mary Elizabeth Miller, secretary and treasurer, as
officers of the Beta Club and Catherine Edwards, presidentg Annalee Murphy, vice-
president, Betty Shaffer, secretary, Helen Bollenbacher, treasurer, as officers of
the Alpha group.
At the beginning of the year the cabinet of the Beta group held an all-day Setting
Up Conference at the Y. W. C. A. to make its plans for the coming year. The cabinet
of the Alpha group held its Setting Up Conference as a camping trip at Put-In-Bay.
At the beginning of the year the Y-Hi club gave a "Kid Party" for all the High
School girls and a little later, a football banquet for the championship team of 1935-36.
At Christmas time we presented as a special Christmas program a Christmas play. We
have had as our projects of service this year the Hlling of Christmas stockings for Van
Wert children and the donation of S25 Qmoneyj for relief in the flood stricken areas.
Early in the spring our club cooperated in an all-county Hi-school G. R. conference
held at the Y. W. C. A.
We have especially endeavored this year to have the program of our club so planned
as to promote fellowship among the members of the club and to further the ideals
of our organization.
CATHERINE EDWARDS, '36
To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high stand-
ards of Christian character. This is the motto of the Senior Hi-Y Club. This year the
club lived up to its motto in every way. The club constantly strives to increase and
better itself. About twenty members were taken into the club at the induction cere-
mony held at the beginning of the year. Preceding the ceremony a supper was held
with the parents of the members as guests. This year we helped the Convoy club get
started by performing the induction ceremony for them. The club was well repre-
sented at the Annual Older Boys Conference held at Tiffin, Ohio, and took an active
part in all discussions. The West Central Council was entertained at a potluck supper
given by the Van Wert Club. The annual Ladies Night was much improved over the
preceding years, being in the form of a dinner dance. The program of the club was
varied, and in all, was very interesting. Several social events were sponsored by the
club. The officers of the club this year were: Dick Dippery, president, Gordon Slus-
ser, vice-president, Finley Dickinson, secretary, Dick Ziegler, treasurer. Mr. Galla-
poo and Mr. Mason were the faculty advisers, while Rev. Paul Sharp acted as spiri-
tual adviser and Hal V. Hunt represented the Y. M. C. A.

G. A. A.
The G. A. A. pledge is: I solemnly swear that I shall, to the best of my ability,
live up to the ideals of true sportsmanship, that quality of honor which desires always
to be courteous, fair and respectful, and to discourage any unsportsmanlike attitude
or action, and to keep myself mentally, morally and physically clean. .
G. A. A. initiation was held October 18. I think it was enjoyed by everyone fespe-
cially new membersj. The evening was spent with a potluck, an informal and a formal
initiation. Many new members were taken in.
Our chief concern during the year was to earn some money. VVe had a bake sale
on October 12 which was very successful. We sold tickets for the A. A. U. W. Marion-
nette Show, which was done in the form of a contest with a "Chili Supper" for the
two winning teams, to be given by the two losing teams. We also sponsored a Chili
Lunch at the noon hour on February 28. We ate, danced and were merry.
The G. A. A. tried something new by having an April Fool's Mixer after school
April 1. The High School Jazz Orchestra played for the dancing.
Our biggest event of the year was the basketball banquet given for the girls' and
Varsity basketball teams. At this time nine girls received "V's" for earning 1,000
or more points.
The cabinet this year included the following girls: Katherine Black, president,
Mary Frances Knoll, vice-president, Marguerite Pond, secretary-treasurer. Together
with the following managers: Soccer, Dorothy DeMossg Basketball, Thelma Gardner,
Volleyball, Lois Urichg Baseball, Katherine Green, Swimming and Tennis, Mildred
Knoll, Skating and Hiking, Maxine Wherry, Program Chairman, Helen Diener,
Pep, Dorothy Ellen Reid, Pianist, Mary F. Knoll, Freshman representative, Harriet
The V Club
The V Club is one of the busy organizations of the High School. All of its members
with the exception of Patterson and Springer served on the championship football
squad of 1935. The club raised quite a bit of money from the services rendered by its
members. They ushered, sold refreshments and took care of the check room during the
hard wood court sessions this year.
Dick Zeigler, the V Club president, brought the annual initiation exercises around
in good order. The initiation of members consisted of contests and the answering of
questions to which the new members objected very much. The old members who
remembered their suffering from the year before, did not ease up on the paddles,
although they were outnumbered.
Old members: Stegmeier, Dickinson, Zeigler, Kinkle, Patterson, Hammond, and
Harrow. New members: Springer, Kennedy, Kaduk, Miller, Horton, Holmes, Ford,
Jerome, Rauch, Pieroni, and Trapp.
Officers: President-Dick Zeigler, Treasurer, Kenneth Stegmeier.
DoN JEROME, '36
' EXCALIBUR 1936
For the first time since football was introduced at this school, Van lVert has pro-
duced a Mid-NVQ-st League Championship team. Not having a field of our own to play
on wc were handicapped by having to meet all of our opponents upon visitors grid-
irons. The Cougars started out the season with a lack of experience and were de-
feated by Rawson, 6-0. The team thcn traveled to Fort lVayne South where they held
the Hoosiers 0-0 at the half but were finally defeated by a score of 26-0. Van VVert
then met its old rival. Rockford. Playing in a field of mud, Van YVert could pile up
only 1-14 points to Roc-kford's 0. The first league game was played at St. Marys and
with little difiiculty Van YVert defeated them by a 33-0 score. VVapakoneta was doped
to win the mid-wcst championship but Van YVert trimmed them by the score 7-6. The
next game, ending in a tie, was played with Kenton. Bluffton, who has beaten Van
VVert for many years, suffered a 31-6 defeat. Van iVert topped Ada by the score
of 33-2 and cinched the Mid-VVest Championship. Paulding could not stand up under
the onslaught of such a team and were victims of a 56-0 defeat. Quite a misfortune
occurred in this game when Gene Terry broke his collar bone. The last game of the
season was played with our neighbor, Celina. Although a hard fought game, we came
out into the short end of il 6-2 score.
At the annual football banquet, O. A. Klendworth presented to the following boys
letters and certificates of' awards. 'il"inney" Dickinson 27 quarters. Yan Ellsworth
was unable to finish the season here but in appreciation of his services he was sent
a certificate, "Gilf" Ford 3-L quarters, Joe Hammond 38. Owen Harrow ILO, Bill
Horton 31, Dick Holmes 30, Don Jerome 341, Bud Kennedy 37, Dennie Kinkle 32,
Lewis Kaduk 29, Dave Miller 25. Paul Pieroni 21. Don Rauch 28, Kenny Stegmeier
244, Dick Trapp 29, Dick Zeigler 36. Eight lettermen will be back next Fall.
Our fighting Cougars entered this year's basketball season handicapped by lack of
height but they were always in there fighting to the last. The season ended with the
team winning nine out of nineteen games played and tied for second place in the
Mid-lVest League. Accurate shooting, good passing and fine floor work did much to
overcome the lack of height.
The following boys received letters for playing on the Varsity: Don Jerome, who
acted as captain of the squad and was always pepping up the team. Don also was high
point man for the year. Dick Holmes was fast and always scrapping for the ball.
Dick's shoes will he hard to till next year. Stan Ross will he with us two more years
and we expect to see big things from him. "Frosty" Horton froze his ears the middle
of the season but tllat did not keep him from starring. Dick Trapp has one more year
with the squad, with his quick thinking and accurate shooting the team ought to go
places next year.
The scores for the games were

EXCALIBUR 1936 '
Survival of -
On the sixth day of December
Began the Girls' Interelass Basketball
The Juniors met the Senior members
And the Seniors were the first to fall.
The next in line were the Sophomores
To meet the on-Coming Juniors
They fought long and hard upon the fioor
But the Juniors were the victors.
Again the Juniors tried their skill
Upon the class of "38"
The game proved to he a mighty thrill
With the Sophomores just the bait,
The Juniors needed some one else to tame
So the Freshmen were the next
And at the finish of the game
'l'hey'd been beaten like the rest.
The Juniors met the Freshmen onee more
They said, "We'll win it like the other on
lint in despair they left the lloor
Beeause the Freshmen had won.
The Juniors had just one more game to play
Before their work was done
They beat the mighty Seniors that day
And the championship was won.
And so we leave them where they are
At the top, in this game of play,
Hats off to the Junior Girls
The ehampions of ehampions I'd say.
- The F ittest
The Seniors played their first gaine
VVith the Sophoniores as their foe
'l'here and then they won their fame
As "hard to heat, to rivals-woe I"
'l'he l"arlner's game was the next event
'l'hat took plaee on the eourt
'l'he Seniors won hy fifteen points
And the farmers lost like sports.
The Seniors, uiulefeatecl, grave
'l'he Juniors quite a spill
'l'hey hall eaten their spinaeh ere they ealne
So they were victors still.
The Seniors swore they'cl heat the Frosh
And with this vow in lnincl
They piled up a seore ot' thirty-one
NYith the Frosh nineteen hehincl.
'l'lle greatest thrill eanie in a lvigr night game
VVhen the Seniors played the lteserves
'l'he Seniors won, we knew they would
So we wish theln the glory eaeh player ileserves
The lteserves were hlue hut they weren't clown
Onee again they triecl their luek
llistory repeats itself, 'tis saicl
The Seniors won, though their foes had pluek,
VVe admire our Senior teain this year
They had everything it takes to win
Aeeuracy, alertness and sportsmanship
Yes! A team of champions this has been.

To the soft strains of the music of Dick Crowell and his orchestra the Ship S. S.
Prom moved smoothly off on its journey of the evening of May twenty-furth. Cap-
tained by George Marsh, Junior president, and his First Mate, Lois Miller, the ship
carried many happy passengers. VVith a velvety sky above and the soft glow of stars
shedding their light, beautiful ladies in gowns the colors of the rainbow and hand-
some swains glided across the floor of the ballroom of the ship. High, spots of the
evening featured the welcome by Captain and the response by Richard Wilkinson, vice-
president of the Senior guests acting in the absence of Harry Tate, president.
The Grand March, led by the Captain and the First Mate, played an important role
in the starting of the evening celebration.
During the dancing, refreshments were served by the stewardesses on board
The scintillating music and the dancing continued until the stars began to fade.
The S. S. Prom put slowly into port and, as the stars began to dim, one by one, we
came to the realization that our Junior-Senior prom was ended.

An essay on geese by Sammy Fitzsimmons:
"A geese is a low, heavy set boid which is mostly meet and feathers. His head sits
on one side and he sits on the other. A geese can't sing much on account of dampness
of the moisture. He ain't got no between-his-toes and he's got a little balloon on his
stomach to keep him from sinking. Some gooses when they gits big has curls on their
tails and is called ganders. Ganders don't hail' to sit and hatch, but just eat and loaf,
and go swimmin'. If I was a goose, I'd rather be a gander."
There's a meter in music,
Thereis a meter in tone,
But the best of all meters,
Is to meet her alone.
