The Cougar seniors have been unbeaten two years in succes- sion and have lost only two games in their entire football career. This year it was more difficult than ever to 1'emain undefeated because the Cougars were the spe- cial target of every team. During the early part of the season the team, lacking experience. had a rough time, but with each win the boys gained confidence and played real football. Once past Toledo and Wapak, they rolled up the victories and climaxed the season by beating St. Marys and giving Coach Smith his hundredth win for Van Wert High. Besides winning honors as a team, the Cougars received some high individual honors, Named to the Western Buckeye League first offensive team were Larry Feeney, tackleg John Edwards, guardg Jim Jones, centerg Bob Young, fullbackg and Ron Dierks, halfback. Places on the first defensive League t.eam went to line- backers Jim Jones and Jim Dilbone. Dilbone also rated the All-State first team and Jones made the All-State third team. Bob Young was chosen for a position on the Ohio All-Star Team, which saw action in Canton in August. Congratulations to the team and the coaching staff on this record of two years without defeat. If anybody can do it, Smitty can!

This is called the freshman football team. This year the beginners played five games and came out with the short end of the score: De- fiance 14-0, Coldwater 8-6, St. Marys 27-0, Delphos 12-0, and Shawnee 17-O. You must not criticize the coach or the players for this record for the simple reason that the boys were out there to learn the fundamentals of football and not necessarily to Win. sWith the basic training and the experience acquired this year, many of these players will be able to win positions on the Varsity come next fall. .A I 1 M332 8 V - 5 , QQ l Drum Major: Sally Coombs.

By mid-year they know their way around Fres li ITIGI1, now seasoned veterans, look forward to another year On September 12, 1955, one hundred seventy-five "greenies" proudly entered the doors of high school, only to find ourselves com- pletely lost in the confusion of beginning activities. After a few weeks of forgetting locker combinations and room numbers, we settled down to the routine business of school and elected class officers and repre- sentatives to the Student Council. On the reserve basketball team we proudly cheered Jim Bell, Charles Young, Bob Matthias, Rodger Bechtol, Don Beck, Tom Reyn- olds, Larry Holden, Charles Ingman, Gary Patterson, and Carl With- erow. Several of our classmates carried the pigskin for the freshman team and occasionally for the varsity. We chose Sara Drury as our attendant to the Homecoming Queen. We were proud of the many freshmen who were active members of the high school band, and of our three reserve cheerleaders. With all this to our credit, We feel we have taken our first big step on the stairway of higher education, and we are very happy to turn over our job as "greenies" to the incoming freshman l ' ney on to the sophomore step of V ' c ass as we Jour- an Wert High School. .

One of the first things we did was to elect the officers named below. Placed on the undefeated football team were Jerry Baer, John Edwards, Ron Dierks, Larry Smith, Larry Feeney, Dave Gamble, Paul Schwinnen, Bill Winters, and Joe Agler, who unfortunately suf- fered a broken ankle at the start of the season. For the third year, the junior class chose Nan Cowan as Home- coming attendant. "Time Out for Gingerl' was a popular choice for the class play. Eight juniors played basketball: Larry Ducheney, Dave Gamble, Jerry Baer, Don Good, Paul Schwinnen, Jim Smith, Ron Dierks, and Lar1'y Smith. Juniors playing baseball were Larry Smith, Louis Thomas, Larry Kreischer, Dave Gamble, and Ron Dierks. That winds up the year for us as juniors, but we have one more year. We hope it will bring as many happy times and leave as many pleasant memories as the past years.

Masque and GCIVBI develops dramatic talent The Masque and Gavel Society is an organization open to stu- dents interested in any phase of speech, such as dramatics, declarna- tion, and debate. Although it is a new organization this year, it has an unusually large membership of thirty-seven members. This year's officers were Jim Jones, president, Miriam Price, vice president, and Linda Bagley, secretary-treasurer. These people also held these same offices for the National Thespian group which was organized just this year. Mr. Coon, the speech teacher, is the adviser for both organi- zations. 50 v t I 2 1, J National Thespians First Row: La Rita Whitcraft, Carol Grindahl, Janice Prior, Sally Coombs, Caroline Scott, Janet Monce, Miriam Price.

Al- though pep assemblies made up the bulk of the programs, others were centered around holidays, entertainment, and the giving of awards. Miss Merton's fifty foot speech, Anita Tanner's Easter presentation from the Teirriible Meek, and the launching of the Student Loan Fund are a few of the assemblies which we shall always remember. SOPhOl'l10l'e Class forges ahead in school citizenshi This year when we entered Van Wert High School, we were no longer little "greenies", but we were not yet upper classmen. After getting settled and electing officers, we began to take a definite part in school life. Representing us in athletics were Larry Bowersock, Danny But- ler, Larry Feeney, Roger Gipe, Onley Heath, Larry Johnson, Jim Im- ler, Charles Kanney, Robert Mohr, Jerry Nills, Terry Oetzel, Dick O'Mara, Howard Shaw, George White, Jack White, Don Black, and Bill Winters. At the Homecoming activities, our attendant to the queen was Nancy Williman. We elected Mary Jane Ross, Jim Imler, Ron Sherer, Opal Clouse, Nancy Gipe, and Mary Blake to the Student Council, where Mary Blake was chosen secretary. In other organizations, we were active too. We furnished all the officers and cabinet members for the Junior Y-Teens. Four of our members served on the G. A. A. cabinet and five served on the Ren- dezvous Committee. We contributed twenty-six members to the choir and twenty-five to the band. Sally Thompson and Chris Griffiths won places on the reserve debate team. Cheering the boys on to victory were Diane Folck, varsity cheer- leader, and Ann Hartge, reserve cheerleader. We of the sophomore class have found this year to be a very en- joyable and important one, and we know that the two remaining years in high school will be even better.

Senior Y-Teens uphold high ideals of service. 1 .S The Senior Y-Teens, organized in 1946, is sponsored by Van Wert High School and the Y.W.C.A. The purpose of this organization is "to build a fellowship of women and girls devoted to the task of realizing in our common life those ideals of personal and social living to which we are committed by our faith as Christians. In this endeavor we seek to under- stand Jesus. to share His love for all people, and to grow in the knowledge and love of God." This year the organization contributed time and money to many worthy causes. The girls helped with the tuberculosis envelopes, the Heart Fund, the Polio Fund, and the serving of the business womenis din- ners. Together with the Junior Y-Teens. they sponsored the Kupid's Karnival Dance and the Easter Assembly. Fir Bat 25, 1 rich Q M J -It st Row ll Myers. B Slnltlex., I ltunm n N Willett. D Wt-tk.

This spring, after receiving a superior, or one, rating in the district contest in Lima, the band went to Columbus for the state contest. lt was the first year that Van Wert had participated in the state competition, and we were proud to return home with an excellent, or two, rating. Several band mem- bers also received excellent and superior ratings in district and state solo and ensemble contests. The Band Parents Organization as well as band concerts helped earn money for new uniforms, instruments, and travel expenses. ln the past several years, the band has pur- chased concert and street drums, tympani, chimes, baritone horns, and bass clarinets, giving a new depth to the sound of the band. The Career Day Staff Career Day For the first time in several years Van Wert High School held Career Day, On March 15, no regular classes met, and the stu- dents attended special meetings at the high school. A general ses- sion was held in the morning. Dr. Walter A. Zaugg, professor from Ohio Northern University, gave the keynote speech, "This Is Your Dayf' He listed four points for successfully reaching one's goal. During the remainder of the day, students attended dis- cussion periods covering thirty- one topics. Everyone agreed that Career Day was an informative and valuable experience.
