Mr, Wolf has been a member of the faculty in the Van Wert schools for fourteen years. ln that time instrumental music in Van Wert has had a tremendous growth. We Wish to thank Mr. Wolf for his unceasing labor and unfailing patience that has given to us many splendid bands, orchestras, and concerts that have been the envy of all schools in this section of the country.

One eventful day in September, 1938, Freshmen trooped into Van Wert High School, blissfully looking forward to four Cor morej laborious years of study. Here we are-at the end of the trail. It wasn't a long trail but a short pleasant one which ended so abruptly that it has left us scurrying around like so many perplexed ants. Most of us, when we sit down and think about it, wish that we had it to do over againg but that is quite impossible. Our class has always contributed a good share to the football and basketball teams that have won great fame for Van Wert High. Many other sports have been welcomed by both the girls and the boys. The Junior-Senior Prom, presented in honor of the Seniors, was one of the finest in the history of our school. It required a great deal of work and we are justly proud of the results obtained due to the excellent cooperation of our Junior Class. The live Juniors elected to the National Honor Society were Frank Corathers, Joan Eggerss, Jim Lamy, Betty Murray, and Constance Soldner. Elected to the society this year were Betty Stevens, Betty Yocum, Wilson Duprey, John Shoop, Helene Webster, Marilyn Hunstead, Dick Eeigert, Dick Morgan, Jim Monroe, Norma Milligan, Dorothy Eorwalter, Joe Wolf, and Ann Willoughby. Yes-here we are at the end of the trail. As we unpack and put our things away for the last time, we find ourselves in a most peculiar frame of mind. We are unhappy-yet happy: Unhappy, because we are departing from our beloved school for the last time, happy, because we realize that in the Class of '43 we have fellow students capable of upholding the high traditions of Van Wert High School. Carry on, Juniors! JAMES LAMY "Jim" When it comes to Presidents, Lamy's the man, If anybody can do it, He surely can!

EXCGAAUF Page 37 JU 1011 CL SS HI TORY As Freshmen, we entered Van Wert High School in a big way, 198 strong. After some vigorous campaigning, we elected as class officers Charles Zinsmaster for president, Elizabeth lmler for vice-president, Bernard Haines for secretary, and Jean Corathers for treasurer. Besides contributing many boys to the football and basketball squads, we were represented among the cheerleaders by Bobbie Lou Allen. Many Freshmen boys went out for football and received their numerals. Donn Sells was the only Freshman member of the "V" Club. Six Freshmen received their numerals for basketball. ln the intramurals we, as Freshmen, were quite obscure both in the boys' and girls' leagues. But what we lacked in scores we made up in spirit. The American Legion Essay Contest winners were Elizabeth lmler and Herbert Klewer. When we came back as Sophomores, our class had dwindled in some mysterious way to 163 pupils. Nevertheless we got off to a flying start by electing Charles Zinsmaster president, Jim Stoops for vice-president, Bobbie Lou Allen for secretary, and Donn Sells for treasurer. Bobbie Lou Allen again represented us among the cheerleaders and received her Of the large num- ber of boys from our class who played football, Richard Cirandstaff, Chester Hunter, Donn Sells, and John Stuckey, received their "V's". After basketball season Paul Bodkins, Donn Sells, Jim Stoops, and John Stuckey received A'V's". Our Sophomore year we still were unable to become outstanding in intramurals. Neverthe- less many boys took part in the basketball and softball leagues. The girls were active in soccor. badminton, basketball, volleyball, and softball. Among those girls who received G.A.A. "Vs: were Bobbie Lou Allen, Marcia Balyeat, Bobbie Clark, Margaret Ellen Cireenewald, Barbara Kenyon, Jo Ann Mason, Martha Remmy, and Jean Roggenkemper. Not the least of our accom- plishments, was the hilarious Sophomore Assembly. The American Legion Essay Contest win- ners were Alice Weber and Rex Griflis. When we entered school this year, we were upperclassmen-all 157 of us. What a con- trast to those green Freshmen back in '39l We elected as president Charles Zinsmaster for a third term. For vice-president we chose Paul Bodkins, for secretary, Jo Ann Mason, and for treasurer, Don Shaw. Bobbie Lou Allen and Joanna Beemer were cheerleaders this year. After our very successful football year, Bob Barrfentos, Richard Grandstalf, Art Green, Chet Hunter, Pat Maher, Dan Morris, Donn Sells, Jim Stoops, John Stuckey, and Charles Zins- master, received their letters, and gold footballs. Our Junior Class Play, 'AOne Wild Night", was presented to a large audience. The cast included Branson Agler, Rodger Alspach, Bobbie Clark, Howard Cobb, Myrtle Collins, Doyt Cox, Edward Frericks, Helen Joan Gunsett, Betty Hartmeir, Barbara Kenyon, Jo Ann Mason, Dan Morris, Nora Presler, Edith Raabe, Martha Remmy, Don Shaw, and Charles Zinsmaster. The Junior members of the National Honor Society are lrene Bell, Patricia Dull, Helen Joan Gunsett, Jo Ann Mason, Edith Raabe, Jack Weigle, Marjorie Wilkie, and Charles Zins- master. This year in boys' intramurals we made up for our rather unimportant previous record. The Junior "B" team won the HB" league championship. The Junior "A" team won the ln- tramural Basketball Tournament. The class rings and pins were chosen by a committee of Rodger Alspach, Betty Hisey, Edith Raabe, Jack Weigle, and Charles Zinsmaster. The Lyre Club. which was organized this year for the special recognition of those Band members who had earned their Lyre pins, included three Juniors, Nora Presler, John Oswalt, and Don Wolf. , Having survived our nrst three years, we are looking forward to a successful Senior year when we will take the place of this year's illustrious Seniors.

We passed from this state of blissful ignorance in time to elect a competent group of class officers. These were Jack Clifton, president, George Johnson, vice-president: Margaret Stetler, secretary: and June Conley, treasurer. Soon after this our representatives to the Student Coun- cil, Ralph Rasbe, Clyde Coon, Patty Baxter, and Eleanor Hall were chosen. In the two major sports, football and basketball, we were well represented for Freshmen. Those boys who went out for football were David Balyeat, Gene Bebout, Clyde Coon, Clyde Ford, George Johnson, and Charles Kline. ln basketball only two of our members made the Reserves: Harlan Taylor and George Johnson. Both our boys and our girls had a good spirit but an unremarkable record in intramurals as Freshmen usually do. There were many Freshmen in orchestra, band, and chorus, while a good percentage of our girls attended Girl Reserves and G.A.A. Dorcas Owens was elected Freshman representative to G.A.A. In looking back over our first year in high school we have decided that he had many good times and rather enjoyed the kidding that goes with being Freshmen. We realize that we had learned much, in studies and other lines, and looked forward to the next year. With superior smiles and manner the class of '44 again entered Van Wert High School in the fall of '4l. But now the 79 girls and 70 boys were Sophomores and occupied five home rooms instead of the study hall. A completely diferent set of officers was chosen this year with Clyde Coon, president: Vir- ginia Olberding, vice-president: Yvonne Leatherman, secretary: and Bonnie Preston, treasurer. Returns from the Student Council election showed that Jack Clifton, Yvonne Gallapoo, Elea- nor Hall, Dorcas Owens, and June Waitman were our representatives. Dorcas was elected secre- tary of the Student Council. This'year David Balyeat, Gene Bebout, Clyde Coon, Clyde Ford, Charles Kline, "Rusty" Pierce, Dick Showalter, and Dick Whitcraft were out for football. Several of these boys saw some action. Many of our boys made the Reserve basketball team, and two of them, Tommy Galloway, and Harlan Taylor, proved themselves worthy of the varsity. Harlan Taylor re- ceived his letter for basketball. U Again this year many Sophomores contributed to the music of the band and orchestra while a greater number than usual took part in chorus and the Choral Concert. Our girls were very active this year in the G. R. and in the G.A.A. Peg Bernheisel, Elea- nor Hall, Virginia Olberding, and Dorcas Owens were on the cabinet. Several girls received their red V's, and may got their numerals and small letters for participating in intramurals and individual sports. Our boys and girls fared somewhat better in their intramurals this year, and both dis- played the same excellent spirit. One 'member of our cass Ralph Raabe, has distinguished himself by being appointed to Culver Military Academy on a scholarship. Although he is there now, we consider him as one of our classmates and are proud of his achievements. Members of our class have been very active in assemblies, in attending football and bas- ketball games, in their radio broadcast, and in various other activities. We are proud to be the first Sophomore Class to win the first prize in the Activities' Ticket Drive. This was due mainly to the eHforts of Clyde Coon, our president. Now as our days as underclassmen are drawing to a close, we stop to consider our experi- ences, accomplishments and mistakes. Although we have some regrets we feel that when we return next year as upperclassmen we'll really know our way around. If our next two years are as worthwhile as these first two, we'll be satisfied.

Although we have dwindled we have also welcomed new members and now have an enrollment of one hundred seventy-four. We will admit we were green as "emerald", as all Freshmen are. However, we are proud of the fact that we have improved considerably. A few days later members of the Freshmen class started their campaigning for class leader- ship. Those successful were-Jack Linninger, presidentg Junior Hisey, vice-president: Jack Fa- tum, secretaryg Guy Boyer, treasurer. Under their capable leadership we managed to make our first year a successful one. To represent the Freshman class in the Student Council we elected Patsy Hamilton, Mary Dannecker, Graydon Jerome and Bill Shreck. We cannot boast of a large number of boys that went out for football, but we do have two outstanding players. These two are Jack Linninger and Gene Miller. To make up for our shortage of football players we have a good representation of players on the reserve basketball team. Those that played the entire season with that "good old Fresh- man spirit" are the following: Bob Grandstaff, Angel Barrientos, Junior I-lisey, Gene Miller, Dale Taylor, Bill Shreck, and Jack Monroe. Dillon Rhodenbaugh was an eflicient manager of the reserve team. The Freshmen boys have their teams for boys' intramurals. ln the tournament as well as in the games they came through with a fair record. Likewise, the girls have their intramural teams. Even though they cannot boast of a good record, they fought on with that Freshman spirit of determination. Other sports which the Freshmen like are soccer, baseball, bowling, badminton, and ping-pong. The girls have two worthwhile organizations. Many are members of the G.A.A. and are working for their numerals. Also some are members of the Girl Reserves. The Freshman class has talent and is interested in music as is shown by the large number that participate in the chorus, band, and orchestra. The choral concert was an activity in which many took part. Also a number took part in the Band Concert, The Freshmen have tried to do their part in supporting school activities. We have had a good representation at the mixers. The Freshman doesn't let every opportunity slip by. Some of them took advantage of it and entered into the American Legion Essay Contest. They had a privilege to express their ideas concerning a Democracy and how it e1Tects every individual. The Freshman class gave their class assembly on February tenth. The President of our class, with the help of Mr. Bowen, selected a committee to get together the program. Those on the committee were the following: Joan Ross, Billie Jeanne Brubaker, Marcia Morgan, Winni- fred Schaadt, Dick Barson, Bill Fox, Jack Fatum, Graydon Jerome, and Jack Linninger. With the cooperation of the Freshman class, we produced a skit portraying the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Freshman class, as their part in the defense program, contributed a twenty- Eve dollar defense bond to the school. We are trudging up a long, hard, narrow path. We have gone but a short distance but as we look back and recapitulate the past we know that all of it has not been in vain. We have had disappointments and temptations to overcome. But memories of this year will linger with us as we look forward to what next year has to offer us.

EYCKIALUI' Page 45 NATIO At the last echo of the gun resounded, ending the final game, the boys of the Scarlet and Grey rang down the curtain on anothsr succ:ssful football season. With a thrilling memory of a 31 to 0 victory over their opponents from Celina, twelve seniors trotted off the field, their last official time for Van Wert. Those seniors were Nathan Bailey, Leonard East, Walt Eouty, Dick Grandstaff, Thad Hall, Bill Leffel, Jim Monroe, Dick Morris, Gene Redrup, Bill Tindal, and Co-Captains Charlie Albright and John Coon. This year under the new guidance of Coaches Smith and Peters, Van XVert had another undefeated season winning seven games and tying two. NVe also captured another undisputed League Title by winning four and tying one league game. Van Wert has won or shared this championship for six out of the last seven ye-airs. We members of the A"42" team hope that next year's squad will be equally successful.

Albright plunged his way over for the score. The Cougars showed much improvement the following week when we rolled up a 39 to O count against the Kenton Wildcats, in our first out-of-town game of the season. Albright started the ball rolling and scored the first touchdown in the first minutes of the game. Stoops and Monroe then continued the scoring with long runs and Sells' long passes to Weigle, Cobb, and Ford were good for touchdowns. Hunter added two points and Grandstaff one via the extra point route. Van Wert then donned mud cleats and traveled away from home to defeat a strong De- fiance eleven I9 to 6. Albright bulled his way over for the initial score and also the point. Sells' pass into the flat to Monroe scored and a few minutes later Monroe went over again on a quarter-back sneak to end the scoring for the night. XVe then journeyed to Bluffton for our first league game, and only managed to bring home a 7 to 7 tie. Sells' touchdown pass to Stuckey and I-lunter's extra point ended the Cougar scor- ing threat. We came back the following week to overpower a tough Bellefontaine team 21 to O in an- other league game on our home field. Stoops scored around his own right end and Grandstaff and Stuckey cashed in on reserve plays for tallies. Monroe passed to Coon and l-lunter's and Bailey's kicks clicked for extra points. Van Wert still in stride sent the Wapak Indians back to their camp to the tune of l4 to 7, in our third straight league game. Stuckey went over twice, standing up, on two beautifully executed reverse plays while Hunter and Albright added the other two points to the record. The Green Dragons of Lima then invaded our borders seeking revenge, but they returned home from a rain-soaked gridiron with only a 6 to 6 tie. Albright romped 36 yards in the early part of the game for our only score. Van Vv'ert then went to St. Marys where we found the weather similar to that of the pre- ceeding week. This time, however, we managed to outride the Roughriders by the score of 20 to O for another league win. Sells plowed his way through the center of the line for two touch- downs and two extra points and Linninger ended the scoring by going over from the 3-yard stripe. The Cougar gridders were held to 3l points by our traditional rivals from Celina to clinch the league title in the closing encounter of the season. The game was hardly underway when Bailey intercepted a wild Bulldog pass and galloped 30 yards for the first tally, The Cougar machine then began to roll when Stoops, Cougar halfback, cut loose with a beautiful 75 yard jaunt through a broken field for another touchdown. Albright smashed his way through Celina's line to add another score and with a minute left to play Redrup bucked his way into the end-zone from the 7 for the last score of the season. gxcahgur Page 49 S MM RY 0F 1941-42 B KETBALL SEASO Due to a shaky first quarter the Van Wert Cagers dropped the opening game of the season to a rangy Cincinnati quintet by a 43 to 33 count. The following week Van Wert took a 34 to 21 Hwhippinn from Greenville. The Cougars lost their third game of the season to Dayton Co-Op by a score of 41 to 32. Van Wert broke into the win column by completely outclassing a slow and inexperienced Nlontpelier five by the score of 33 to 15. Taylor, new starter in the Cougar lineup, made his debut by scoring 12 points. Van Wert then traveled to Piqua only to return home on the short end of a 36 to 30 score, Bellefontaine still remained a jinx team for the Cougars as we were defeated by the Chief- tains 38 to 33 on their home floor. Van Wert then returned home to win a thriller from a very hot Paulding team 50 to 46. Taylor, Monroe, and Fouty led the Cougar scoring attack with 13, 12, and 10 points respec- tively. The Cougars then completely swamped the St. Mary's Club the following Friday by the score of 52 to 22. Every player on the Cougar roster saw action in the game. On the night of January 23, 1942, Van Wert received a stinging defeat at the hands of our interscholastic rivals, Celina. They went on to win by the score of 34 to 26. The Cougars lost their next game to a scrappy Wapakoneta quintet by a 33 to 31 score. Van Wert lost another nip and tuck battle the next week to a strong Lima South five by a 40 to 37 count. The Cougars played inspired basketball as they nosed out the Bluffton Pirates 41 to 40 in a thrill-packed ball game on our home court. Van Wert was then defeated by Defiance in a hard-fought game in our Lincoln Gym. Van Wert surged to a 39 to 33 lead in the third quarter but could not keep up the face as the fast- moving Defiance club came back sizzling in the fourth canto to win 50 to 44. The Cougars then journeyed to Kenton where we defeated the Wildcats 40 to 37. Napoleon then fell at the hands of the Cougar cagers by the score of 50 to 43. This victory was our sixth of the season and our third out of our last four starts. Van Wert then chalked up a 49 to 38 victory against Bryan in the last scheduled game of the season. The Van XVert cagers hung up their Riddels as they were defeated in their first game of the District Class "A" tournament at Defiance by Bowling Green. The Cougars lost by one last minute point in a hard-fought encounter by the score of 34 to 33. After this victory Bowl- ing Green went on to win the tourney.

An All-Star' team, composed of representatives from each of the underclasses, played the Senior A. The All- Stars won by a score of 9 to 5. GIRL ' l TRAM RAL Under the instruction of the new physical education teacher, Miss Pais, the girls showed an outstanding interest in sports this year. They started out with a successful round of soccer, an out-of-doors game, with each class well represented. The favorite sport of most of the girls seems to be basketball. As usual the season was a suc- cess with many girl taking a great interest in the games. Each class had at least three teams, some of them four. The winner, the Senior A, was challenged by an All-Star team composed of girls from the losing teams. The girls on the Senior Championship team were Velora Agler, Jean Baltzell, Dorothy Coupland, Madlyn Evans, Gloris Ford, Marvel Kiehl, June Kreischer, Joan Putman, Virginia Reed, and Lillian Stephens. The All-Stars were Bobbie Al- len, Ruth Baltzell, Joanna Beemer, Margaret Furrell, Elizabeth Imler, Thelma Keihl, Phyllis Keil, Gloria Langdon, Virginia Olberding, Dor- cas Owens, Betty Schaffer, and Permilla Wherry. Bowling was added to our list of sports this year. It was very well accepted. A tournament was set up among the classes which made it even more interesting and exciting. Badminton and Ping Pong tournaments were arranged for the benefit of girls interested in those games. The Volleyball tournament was played in- doors. There were at least ten teams made up of girls from each class. Softball is the one remaining sport to be played out-of-doors. Each team is out to win, each providing stiff competition, which makes games exciting as well as interesting, win or lose.

Bowl- ing, volleyball, and ping-pong were added to the basketball and softball program and thus intramurals gained many new participants. In basketball the Senior UA" team won their second consecutive league championship by go- ing undefeated. This brought their two-year record to I8 wins out of I9 games. In the HB" league the Juniors were champions, winning six games and losing none. In the organization league, the T S5 I were the champs for this team. A handicap tournament was then held and the Junior "A" team was victorious: defeating the Senior "A" 39 to 26. After this an interclass tourney was held in which the boys on the var- sity basketball squad were allowed to participate. In the championship game of the school the Seniors nosed out the Juniors 46 to 45 with Monroe and Fouty each scoring I6 points for the Seniors and Bodkins and Sells both collect- ing II points for the losers. Bowling was then introduced into the pro- gram. The boys were divided into class HA" and "B" leagues on the basis of qualifying scorzs. In the class UA" league the Pin Boys were first, having nine wins and four loses to their credit. They defeated the Cougar Specials, who were tied for first place, two out of three games for the championship. In the "B" league the team consisting of Ed Vikupitz, Bob Zeigler, Pat Maher, Junior Winters, and Richard Kreischer, won the championship by winning seven and losing three games. Tournaments were then held in volleyball, and ping-pong: both newly added this year. All of the classes were well represented in these sports and much interest was taken in them. The intramural program was brought to a close with the softball tournament, All of the classes looked forward to these games and were all out to win the softball crown. X aa'-..

A potluck supper preceded the initiation. Then a most impressive induction service was held entirely by candlelight. Members of the Cab- inet and club formed a V with the president standing at the point of the V. The pro- cessional of new members was led by Dorothy Germann and Virginia Olberding. Marilyn Hunstead accompanied with the "V Girl Song", After being inducted the new members took their places among the old members. The Hrst club meeting was held October 30, l94l in the Study Hall with its newly elected ofhcers presiding. They were as follows: President, Joan Putman: vice-president, Joan Eggerss: secretary, Colleen Humerickhouse. The meetings are held in the Study Hall every other Wednesday with cabinet meet- ings on the intervening Wednesday. In the early fall the club members went on a hike which ended with a picnic. It was enjoyed by all the girls and was a perfect opportunity to become acquainted with one another. The G.A.A. put on an assembly in the Study Hall for the student body and later a Spring Dance for the club members. Q. , f Va wir' 41 ' . glxcagguri P329 5 9 '--X .,i.f..: EX X . xx. .

The old members were in charge of the induction. They were Betty Murray, president: Joan Eggerss, vice-president: Constance Soldner, secretary: James Lamy and Prank Carothers. The Juniors who were elected are Irene Bell, Patty Dull, Helen Joan Cunsett, Jo Ann Mason, Edith Raabe, Jack Weigle, Marjorie Wilkie, and Charles Zinsmaster. The Seniors who were elected are Wilson Duprey, Richard Feigert, Dorothy Forwalter, Marilyn Hunstead, Norma Milligan, James Monroe, Richard Morgan, John Shoop, Betty Stevens, Helene Webster, Ann Willoughby, Joe Wolf, and Betty Yocum. The emblems of our society are the flaming torch and the keystone. From the earliest times the lighted torch has been a symbol of knowledge. All men who seek truth must light the torch of knowledge. The keystone bears at its base the letters C. S. L. S. which stand for the four cardinal principles of our organization: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. As the keystone is placed by the builder to hold the perfect arch in stability, so the structure of our education must be held firm and true by the virtues represented in this symbol. ' E si 5 gxcaggur Page 61 TUBE T COUNCIL Membership of the Student Council is made up in the following ratio: Freshmen, four, Sophomores, five: Juniors, six: Seniors, eight and the presidents of all four classes. This organization met on the average of every two weeks and discussed problems of the school, common to both teachers and pupils. The officers for the year 1941-42 were elected at the first meeting held Wediiesday, October 29. The results showed Frank Carothers to be president, Howard Cobb, vice-president: and Dorcas Owens, secretary. The council has charge of all the mixers and sponsors the popcorn and candy concessions at the athletic events. With some of the profits derived from these sources, this organization purchased a S100 Defense Bond and contributed two Christmas Baskets for needy families. The Student Council sponsors many activities for the year: Assemblies, Eighth Grade Visi- tation Day, and the Activities Ticket Drive.

Many unique formations were displayed by the band. The most outstanding performance was put on during the Ohio Football for Defense Week sponsored by the Standard Oil Company, in which our band won second prize of 575,00 in Defense Bonds. ln winning this prize they also won state recognition and acclaim. After the football season came to an end the band had waiting for them a new partially accoustically treated band room. The new band room has an elevated platform and at one end are shelves for the instruments and cabinet drawers for the music. A small pep band, consisting of about fifteen members, represented the band at all of the basketball games played at home. Their snappy marches added much to the color and enthusiasm of the games. On the nights of March 23 and 24, Mr. Wolf presented his Annual Band Concert in the Lincoln Auditorium to the largest appreciative audience ever attending. Over 2,000 tickets were sold. When the curtain opened a large spotlight revealed the Goddess of Liberty, with a huge American flag waving on either side of her. Large glittering notes of silver on a black background made a beautiful and effective setting. To make it more impressive the band was softly playing the '4White Cliffs of Dover" as lights gradually came up. Following this dramatic scene came a varied program well rendered of stirring marches, favorites, selections and overtures of famous composers, Early on the morning of May l the band traveled to Kenton, Ohio, where they participated in the Annual Northwestern Band Festival, composed of seven other High School Bands. After an afternoon rehearsal a concert of the Massed Bands under the direction of Glen C. Banium, director of music at Northwestern University, was held, After a parade the next morning the band returned home. The band personnel is composed of 66 players, under the competent direction of Mr. Wolf. 0RCHESTR The High School Orchestra, conducted by the baton of their director, Leonard Wolf, are ever ready to serve the school and community with their talents. Students, trained in the grades, enter the High School orchestra with a background and appreciation eager to play selections of Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart. Through the year the orchestra of small ensembles often present special selections for the Kiwanis, Rotary, Elks, and various church programs. Preceding each of the Annual Class Plays the orchestra is faithful in giving to the audience a half hour of entertainment before the curtain rises, The orchestra is an ideal medium for accompanying soloists: and especially vocal selections. Music is a vital factor in building a state of mind and heart which is essential to American spirit and morale, to worthy pride ingthings which are American. Let us use the power of music to quicken loyalty, and to deepen appreciation of free democracy, To close an interesting year the most outstanding event of the orchestra was the Annual Orchestra and Chorus Festival. This was held in Van Wert May 5, with Kenton, Celina, and St. Marys schools participating: with a program for the public that they too could enjoy their good efforts of the past year. The following students made up the personnel of the orchestra: The Accordion: Betty Fisher and Rachel Williams. The Bassoon: Barbara Garrison. The Clarinet: Ruth Dodge and Sue Gocke. The Drums: Robert Allen and Jack Clifton. The Flute: Marjorie Wilkie and Helen Marie Wise. The French Horn: lrene Bell, Gerald Miller, and Cora Mae Walters. The Oboe: Bette Good and Barbara Wilkie. The Piano: Betty Stevens. The Saxophone: Donald XVolf. The Trombone: Patricia Bagley, Robert Reidinbaugh, and Betty Yocum. The Trumpet: Bill Fox and Eugene Springer. The Violin: Myrtle Collins, Thad Hall, Donna Marie Johnson. Allen XVillmert. and Lois Hoffmann. Page 64 axcaggur SENIOR CLASS PL Y "THE LATE CHRISTOPHER BEAN" The Senior Class gave as their play this year Sidney Howards comedy, "The Late Christo- pher Bean". It was presented in the Lincoln Auditorium on the night of April 24, 1942. A painter named Christopher Bean had died in a New England village leaving only a few, dirty canvases to pay the doctor for his efforts to heal him. It was a mild surprise to Doctor Haggett QThomas Prcstonl and his family, consisting of his wife Hannah QDorothy ForwalterD, and two daughters, Ada fBetty Yocuml a girl of twenty-six, who fancies her baby prettiness and baby-like manner, and Susan fColleen Humerickhousej a pretty girl of nineteen, when an old friend of Bean's dropped in and paid Bean's old bill. This friend was Tallant CPerry Wiseb a forger of paintings, who takes two of Bean's canvases as mementos. A bigger surprise came when another old friend of Bean's, Rosen fNVilliam Tindallj by name, turned up on a similar errand, but the biggest surprise of all comes when a great New York art critic Uames Lamyj arrives to pay his respects to the memory of the dead artist. When the Haggetts learn that Bean's paintings are worth a fortune, they are amazed. There is then a mad scramble for Bean's paintings which involves the servant girl Abby CMarilyn Hunsteadb who has permitted Bean to paint a life size portrait of her. During the course of events Susan elopes with her lover, Warren Creamer Uohn Shoopj. After the struggle to acquire Bean's paintings dies down and Dr. Haggett is about to sell the canvases, the last hope of the Haggets for getting rich is shattered by their finding out that Abby, the servant girl, is really Mrs, Christopher Bean. The theme of the play is a study of greed, with Dr. Haggett expressing his hatred for greed until his chance comes to gain riches. Abby's only real friends are Susan, Warren, and Mr. Davenport, the New York art critic. The play ends with Abby receiving the rightful ownership of Bean's paintings. XCGE ul' JUNl0ll CLASS lfL Y On November Z8 the class of '43 presented the farce "One Vv'ild Night." The story takes place in the home of Rodney Dodd, a healthy young man who, because most of his ancestors were invalids, believes he is one. He spends his time in a wheel chair and lakes codliver oil. His house must be kept quiet at all times, but when Aunt Myra Opal Dodd comes to visit it must be quieter. lt is not only Aunt Myra's health to be considered but her pocketbook as well: for Rodney is flat broke and Jodwillow, the butler, and Henrietta, the maid, must look to Aunt Myra for their salaries, Prepared for utter quiet, Rodney is surprised to find Aunt Myra accompanied by Charlotte Allen, young and attractive. Charlotte overwhelms Rodney, who because of the way he feels calls for a doctor's examination, and then overhearing Doctor Bell talking on, the telephone about one of his rare plants which was dying, believes that he is dying. Charlotte admires real men, so as JodwilloW's suggestion Rodney decides to spend his remaining hours in doing the things which he has been afraid to do before. He sends to the newspapers evidence that he has on a gangster, he gives his house to a girls' school, and then, after doing all these things he lies down d. to ie, Rodney wakes the next morning to find himself feeling better than he has ever felt. Then thinks really begin to happen. Henrietta faints upon seeing what she thinks is Rodney's ghost. Ned Steerwell comes banging in searching for Doris Winthrope, whom he believes Rodney had kidnapped and Jodwillow is forced to drop several vases on his head to keep peace and quiet. Rodney is amazed to learn that Doris and her friend, Maribelle, have spent the night in their new dormitory Chis housej. Moreover, Maribelle has a bugle on which she threatens to blow a blast now and then. Scorpio sends Rodney some bombs. Then Rodney has to explain to Charlotte the presence of Jane Darnelli, a night club singer, with whom he got mixed up the night before. Rodney gets cold feet and tried to call off the whole thing but it has gone too far, Meanwhile, Aunt Myra is horrified by the uproar and is reduced to a state of collapse. Jodwillow brings out his Vv'illow Chlorophide, invented with his chemical set and the play ends with everyone going to sleep. The story ends happily. Rodney and Charlotte find they are in love: Scorpio is captured, and Aunt Myra agrees to help Rodney with her money.

Different groups of voices have rendered choral selections for both Rotary and Kiwanis programs, as well as at the Elks' Family night parties, The usual operetta presented in previous years was replaced this year by a vocal concert with a very enjoyable program consisting of many a cappella numbers by the Girls' Chorus, the Boys' Chorus, and the Mixed Chorus. Three different boys' quartettes were featured on the program and three girls' ensembles. The audience received the a cappella numbers with much appreciation, and many expressed pleasure in hearing so many voices blended in song without accompaniment. The program in general consisted of some of the finest negro spirituals and religious anthems. One of the numbers sung by the Mixed Chorus was in eight part harmony. For several years the Van Wert High School Chorus has joined for a day the choral societies of Kenton, Celina, St. Marys and the Marsh Foundation Schools in a Spring Festival of song. This year on May 5, these schools met in Van Wert with a program of varied selections, and through their songs brought to the public a greater appreciation of choral music. In the crisis of the coming year the chorus will be a means of proving how essential music is in proclaiming unity and fellowship, as well as affording an opportunity of creating a more patriotic morale in the public schools through song. ego are ! it ,jffgx Q 6' E I, 1 25? GIRL ' GLEE CL B Through the untiring efforts of Mr. Mohr, our new chorus instructor this year, Van Wert High School has a new organization, the Girls' Glee Club. Perhaps we should call it the Glee Clubs because there are really two. One club for Sophomore girls and one for the Freshmen girls. Both clubs include approximately forty voices in each. Because of the successful season completed by the girls this year. we are glad to know that this will be a permanent organization. The girls' voices do not have as wide a range as the boys', therefore the choral work done by the group is always in three parts: soprano, second soprano, and alto. The selections sung by this group in the choral concert include: "The Linden Tree" by Schubert, "Moonlit Lake of the Isles" by Lieurance sung by the Sophomore group, "A Prayer of Consecrationn by Protheroe, and "Music XVhen Soft Voices Die" by Kramer.

The first of the year if a person were interested in doing one certain thing, he tried that to see if that was what he wanted to do. 'l he jobs were shifted around until everyone had found the thing he enjoyed doing most. Fourteen issues of the paper were printed. each a little better than the last one. The Hrst one was dedicated to the new teachers, and the last issue was dedicated to the Seniors, The circulation of the Quill is about 600 copies. There are approximately 500 copies distributed in the school and the rest are exchanged with other szhools or sold outside. The staff members took assignments on the Monday af,er the Friday when the paper was issued. They worked on these assignments that week, and then the copy was taken up to the Times-Bulletin where it was printed. to be typed up. A proof of the copy was brought back and checked before it went to press. The exchange of our paper with other schools was taken care of by Dorothy lforwalter and Colleen Humerickhouse, They mailed a copy of each issue to the schools that sent us their papers during the year. With the exception of the special editorial column written each time by Stanley Tolan editorials of the paper were Written by any student who cared to write one. The headline writers were mainly Martha Gorrell, Dorothy Forwalter, and Marilyn Hun- stead. Some headlines were written by other members of the staff. The advertising in the paper was taken care of by .loan Eggerss and Stanley Tolan. They had some thirty advertisers every issue. The boys' sports were reported by John Shoop, while Dorothy Coupland took care of the girls' sports. The special columns were: Society, Line O' Tripe, Meet the Seniors. and Long, Long Ago. The first was edited by Ann Willoughby, the second by Dorothy Coupland and Martha Gorrell, the third by Marilyn Hunstead, and the last by Dick Feigert. Finances were trusted to Betty Murray and Betty Stevens. Betty Kear reported most of the school assemblies during the year. The make-up of the paper was done by the Editor, Dean Miller, with the help of the advisor, Mr. Gallapoo. i r E E 2 1 P E f I E E E E I E i ,Yeah ur Page 71 GIRL RESERVES A very successful season was completed by the Girl Reserves this year. This was-due largely to the efforts of the officers who were: Dorothy Germann, president: Marjorie Wilkie, vice-president: Edith Raabe, secretary: Velora Agler, treasurer: and Miss Flaler, advisor, Many profitable and enjoyable evenings were spent by approximately ninety girls who were members this year. The programs have been varied. One evening, the girls invited their mothers as guests, On another, an amateur program provided entertainment. On still another, appropriately called 'fthe Sweater Hop," the girls invited guests for an evening of dancing. The last program of the season was a farewell to the Seniors. This was impressive to all who attended, but it was most impressive to the Seniors themselves. These girls feel proud, and a little bit better, as a result of their association with a club whose ideals are as high as those HI-Y This year the Hi-Y was presided over by Kilburn fBudj Hunt, President, James Monroe, Vice-President: and John Shoop, Secretary-Treasurer. These officers were all very loyal to the organization and did a fine job in executing their duties. All three of them attended Camp Nelson Dodd last summer in order to obtain training for their work this year. Soon after the first meeting a program for the whole year was devised by a committee. This plan enabled the club to carry on throughout the year with definite objectives and was followed with very few changes. The club accomplished a great deal this year. A few of the highlights of its active year were: Giving a Christmas basket, putting on a Halloween party, sponsoring Ladies Night, hav- ing a devotional program before each meeting, and the club attending in a body once a month one of the churches of the city. Another project to help their finances along was collecting old paper, hailing it, and selling it. From this enough money was received for the club to carry on its duties throughout the year. A boy cannot become a member until he is a Junior. This year the enrollment reached about sixty. The Hi-Y stands for clean speech, clean scholarship, clean sportsmanship and clean living and does its best to follow these ideals. of the Girl Reserves. E. E. . The F. F. A. is an organization of thirty-seven members with Carl Longsworth as presi- dent: Junior Jordon, vice-president: Vernon Palmer, secretary: Bill Wermer, reporter: John Curtis. "watch dog" Csergeant at armsj 3 and John H. Leonard, advisor. In this organization a boy may achieve four ranks during his high school career. They are as follows: Greenhand, Future Farmer. State Farmer, and American Farmer. During the year the group enjoys many activities. Last summer they took a trip through the South. The group has purchased a S100 defense bond. They won the District Parlimentary Procedure contest. and took part in the State Judging contest. To qualify for membership you must be enrolled in the Vocational Agriculture class and to remain a member you must attend at least 75 per cent of the meetings and work on some project. This organization is valuable to the Na'ional Emergency for it trains students to produce food in a scientific, efflcient manner. HOME E 0 0lVllC CL R The Home Economics Club of Van XVert High School meets the second Vvfednesday of every month. This club is afiiliated with the American Home Economics Association with head- quarters at Washington, D. C. This club, under the direction of Miss Mary Sawyer, elected the following officers: Presi- dent, Velora Agler: vice-president, Beth Ann Feigert: secretary, Marilyn Shoop: and treasurer, Martha Remmy. The club project for this year was knitting for the Red Cross, The members completed eighteen sweaters and two pairs of pants for children two, four, and six years old. The club's purpose is: to give an opportunity for choices in problems and activities of the girl as accompanies Home Economics: to reach goals that cannot be obtained unless other experiences accompany classroom work: to broaden girls' viewpoints in Home Economics. Page 72 gxcadgur THE JUNl0R-SENIOR PR0lVl The Junior-Senior Prom was held on May 23 of last year, in the Lincoln Auditorium of the Third Ward Building. lt was a formal affair. The festivities began at 8:30 with a speech by John Coon the Junior Class President, in which he welcomed the Seniors. Then Jack Hyer, on behalf of the Seniors, thanked the Juniors for their fine decorations. Next came a grand march, led by John Coon and Colleen Humrickhouse. The rest of the evening was then spent in dancing to the music of the Ohio Northern University Collegeteers. The decorations, which were done by a committee from the Junior Class, were the most elaborate and beautiful in many years. They were done in Roof Garden style. The ceiling was decorated so as to give the appearance of a deep blue sky, blanketed with stars. Around three of the walls were silhouettes of a typical New York sky line. Miniature sky-scrapers, from whose windows emitted a crazy-quilt of light, gave the appearance of a busy Nocturnal Metrop- olis. On the stage, adjacent to a refreshment table, sat the orchestra. The dance ended at l2:30, at which time the attendance was greatly diminished, due to unavoidable attractions elsewhere. On the Whole, the prom was very well attended, and was enjoyed to the utmost by all. gxcaggur Page 73 BACCALAUREATE May 24, 1942 7:30 P.M. H. A.
