The janitors, Ralph Thomas and Ray Snyder, take time to
pose by the coat racks they made for the gym balcony this
The staff of 1957 would like to express their ap-
preciation to those who have helped make our job a
little easier. The wonderful cooperation of all the
faculty, especially Mr. Baker, has all meant a lot to
us in creating this Excalibur. Without the advice
and assistance of Mr. Broom, Mr. Alden, and Mrs.
Burkam we could never have produced a yearbook
such as this one. We thank Mrs. Shaw for her pa-
tience and understanding in answering our incessant
questions. The student body has helped our cause by
supporting our projects. To all these people and
others who may not have been mentioned, we call
a sincere, "Thank you."
Robert Jerome and David Van Eman drove the school
busses again this year.

Ohio Northern University was the destina-
tion of the students who were to vie for schol-
arship honors. On Saturday, May 4, after an
hour of intensive concentration, the scholars
were in a gay and cheerful mood. A few weeks
later, the students who ranked high in the dis-
trict and in the state divisions received recog-
nition for their achievements. Again, the Van
Wert team had compiled an enviable record.

This was the year for Calypso, roll-up sleeves, and
Elvis Presley. The formation of the Crazy Eight dance
band, the newly organized young people's political party,
and those Rock 'N' Roll kids, the Feeble Few-all these
were the result of ambitious efiorts of V. W. H. S. stu-
dents. The Carhorundum plant was a Christmas present
to Van VVert. Plans for a new high school site were dis-
cussed and settled in May. Pizza pie, and tours through
Van Wert at four o'Cloek in the morning were novelties
at the slumber parties, Of Course, gossip replaced sleep.
Friendly Persuasion, Giant, Funny Face. and Around
the VVorld in Eighty Days rated high among the movie
set. At the top of the Hit Parade were Tommy Sand's
Teenage Crush, Elvis's Love Me Tender, and Como's
Hound and Round. NVe marveled at Charles-Van Doren
on Twenty-One, laughed at Jonathan Winters, and
again voted the Ed Sullivan Show the top variety pro-
gram on T. V.

October 5. At the halftime ceremonies, Linda Kirchenbauer, the preceding year's queen,
officiated at the crowningg and the cheerleaders, representing the co-captains, presented
the royal scepter and bouquet of roses. To add to the joyous occasion, we defeated Lima
Shawnee. The dance, following the game, centered around the theme "The Queen and
I." The gym was appropriately decorated as a ballroom with sparkling chandeliers and
with a red and silver background. At intermission the class presidents gave the queen
and her lovely court gifts provided by the Scarlet Quill Staff. A sextette of senior girls
entertained with music from 4'The King and I." Dancing continued to the music of The

The last few weeks of school were busy ones for seniors
as they crammed their days with classes and their evenings
with social affairs. Lights burned late as they struggled
with senior projects and other postponed obligations. Prom,
Elk's dance, and house parties brought laughter and tears
into the excitement of "last times."
Showing their calm dignity, the seniors filed sedately
into the stadium for Baccalaureate services. Two days of
suspense concluded happily, for Commencement exercises
were also held outside. The Class of 1957 processed for the
last time, Mixed feelings of nostalgia and anticipation went
with the seniors as they traveled the path across the plat-
form to receive their diplomas.
Taking the inspiring advice of the speaker to heart and
carrying their scarlet and grey bound diplomas, the new
graduates left the stadium remembering the words of the
choir, "Ours Is the World."

Student Council members are the four class presidents
and representatives elected by each class. The purpose of
the Student Council is to create and maintain a good school
spirit and to act as the organization that interprets the
general thinking and feeling of the student body. The mem-
bers are divided into five squads: social, Finance, courtesy,
conduct, and assembly. Their activities include the Student
Loan Plan, hall monitors, honor study hall, and the financ-
ing of the telephone for student use. They sponsored Dad's
night during the football and basketball seasons, the an-
nual 'LTurkey Wobble" dance, and an evening of cleaning
the walls of our school. Jean Hirn and Don Black were the
Council's representatives sent to the State Student Council
Conference at Oxford, Ohio. The Council held a safety

The admirable results of many evenings of
work mixed with fun appeared on December
fifth and sixth when the Junior Class pre-
sented the annual class play. Under the direc-
tion of Clyde Coon, speech instructor of the
high school, they presented the comedy "Sev-
enteen," which is the story of Willie Baxter, a
typical teen-ager, who thinks that girls have
absolutely no place in his life until he meets
Lola Pratt. Of course, like all teen-agers, he
has his problems too. Among these are his kid
sister, Jane, who always sems to get him in
Hhot waterf' and George Crooper. George and
Willie are constantly trying to outdo each
other in an attempt to impress Lola. The play
was greatly enjoyed by everyone.

Ma Shanks comforts Milt when she discovers that he is not
the traitor he was believed to be.
Copperhead, a Civil War drama, was presented by the
senior class on May third and fourth under the direction of
Mr. Clyde Coon. The play concerns Milt Shanks, an Illinois
farmer who has refused to fight in the Union army. He has
joined the Copperheads, an organization of Northerners
who are sympathetic to the Southern cause. Joey, although
only sixteen, volunteers and leaves with the Union forces.
Joey is killed in the Battle of Vicksburg. Martha turns
against her husband, for she feels that Joey is dead because
of Milt. Everyone is against Milt. A letter from President
Lincoln arrives expressing his deep appreciation for the
work Milt has done in providing valuable information. Just
as Martha finishes reading the letter, she hears in the dis-
tance the gunshot which kills Milt. Although she feels
deeply the bitterness of losing Milt, she is comforted by the
fact that he was not a "coward, a thief, a traitor, and a
Martha and Milt argue after they leam of Joey's death. Martha rebukes Milt for his refusal to fight.

spring concert and took part in baccalaureate and com-
mencement exercises. This spring, after receiving a superior
rating in the district contest at Ada, the hand went to
Wooster for the state eontest. lt was the second year that
Van Wert had participated in the state competition and we
returned home proudly with an excellent rating.
The Band Parents Organization also helped earn money

A Cappella Choir Offers Superior Music Experience
The Van Wert a cappella choir, a very ac-
tive organization, consists of nearly one hun-
dred sophomores, juniors, and seniors. During
the year the choir has sung at school assem-
blies and for graduation ceremonies. At the
Christmas season the choir presented a vesper
service, sang at Rotary and Kiwanis, and gave
their annual concert for the Woman's Club.
In March the choir presented their sixth
annual Vocal Varieties. The program was a
campus scene featuring a pep assembly, a
music lesson, a history lesson, and climaxing
with a moving religious scene. Soloists were
Don Weirwille, Miriam Price, Arla Oechsle,
Caroline Scott, Chris Griffiths, Karen Geis-
man, Bob Stevens, and Sally Stewart.
This is the eighth year that the choir has re-
ceived a superior rating in the state contest,
as well as in the district competition. Several
members of the choir also won superior and
excellent ratings in the district and state solo
contests. It is an honor to be a member of this
organization, which is rated as one of the finest
choirs in the state.

The Girls' Athletic Association, under the
direction of Mrs. Ayers, started the year with
their annual hike which provided the first
twenty-five points required to be a member.
A variety of activities took place throughout
the year, including potluck suppers honoring
our athletic teams, and a banquet in the spring
for the seniors and the new cabinet members.
In the intramural program, teams from
the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior
classes were selected to compete in speedball,
volleyball, basketball, and softball. The club
also sponsored bowling activities.
Members who qualified under the G. A. A.
point system were presented with numerals
and letters at the awards assemblies.
School Sports Develop
The V-Club differs from other organiza-
tions in that it is an honor club rather than
an activity club. Membership in this organiza-
tion includes the acceptance of high ideals of
sportsmanship and clean living. Boys who
have earned their varsity "VH for successful
participation in athletics are eligible for mem-
bership. Among their projects is the selling of
ice cream at basketball games.

To Create, Maintain, and
Extend Through the Home,
Because of the popularity of the Hi-Y club, a Junior
Hi-Y organization was formed for the freshmen and sopho-
more boys. The Senior Hi-Y conducted the induction serv-
ice for the thirty-eight members at the Presbyterian
Church. Their projects included selling pop and candy at
the Y-League basketball games and ushering during holy
week at the Ohio Theater for the showing of "The Robe."
They participated in the regional meeting at Bowling Green
which preceded the Model Legislature at Columbus. The
club sponsored a district Hi-Y workshop at the Y. M. C. A.
This meeting was held to point out the aims and accom-
plishments of the Hi-Y organization.

Rendezvous Committee Works With School and YW
The Rendezvous Committee is composed of sixteen
members, four from each class, who a1'e elected at the be-
ginning of their freshman year and serve throughout their
four years of high school.
Their major project is the annual Snowball dance which
is held during the Christmas holiday season. This year's
theme, "Silver Bells," was very beautifully carried out in
decorations of French blue and silver. Boughs of holly and
evergreen added to the festive atmosphere The traditional
Snowball revolving in the center of the ceiling cast a spark-
ling shimmer over the room, Suspended from the Snowball
was a sprig of mistletoe to symbolize holiday romance.
Music for the formal dance was by the Bel-Airs.
The committee opened the Rendezvous Room at the
Y.W.C.A. for high school students on Monday and Satur-
day nights. Members also sold candy, gum, and hot dogs on
Saturday afternoons to skaters at the Y. W.
Record hops help finance Snowball.

Laeti Latini Enioy
Sumptuous Roman Feast
ln its second year, Laeti Latini is now well established
as our chapter of the Junior Classical League. All those
who are studying or have completed Latin II are eligible
for membership. Laeti Latini meetings were held during
noon hours. Programs concerned Roman culture and cus-
toms and the evolution of our present calendar. At the
Christmas meeting guests were served Roman punch while
tapers burned in tiny Romanesque candlesticks.
The club's most important event was the spring Roman
Banquet on May 13. Although this was a sophomore proj-
ect, juniors and seniors were guests and freshmen "slaves"
served the meal. The high school gym was converted into a
Roman courtyard for the banquet. Guests used Latin table
manners and ate "ab ova ad mala", from eggs to apples.
After the feast, prizes were awarded for the most authentic
costumes. Entertainment included a Latin playlet, a girls'
quintet, and a gladiatorial combat.

Interest in Teaching
Thrives in F. T. A.
The F. T. A. is an organization of young people preparf
ing to be teachers. The programs for the year began with a
talk by lVIr. Bennett on Teaching Opportunities Within
Our State and City. Rhea Elston, an elementary teacher,
spoke to the group about the Cadet Course which she com-
pleted recently. The club arranged for a panel discussion on
"What I Expect of the Public School System." Speakers
were: a businessman, a clergyman, a mother, and a teacher.
The F. T. A. Chapter sponsored a Future Teachers
Workshop for local and county club members. Mr. John
Hall, assistant supervisor for the Ohio Education Associa-
tion, opened the meeting with a brief address. Discussion
groups led by various teachers preceded the final session.
The workshop was such a success that Mr. Hall has sug-
gested that it be expanded to include the entire district.
Throughout the year, members were called upon to do
substitute teaching in elementary schools. The club spent
an afternoon observing city and county schools. The year
closed with the election of next year's officers and a picnic
at Mr. Gallapoo's farm.

Quill as a class project. and a service to the school.
This year ten issues containing school news, feature
stories, and novelty items were distributed. The staff
helped with Homecoming activities by providing
gifts for the queen and her court and by wrapping
the goal posts for the game. Selling cougar car plates,
basketball pins, and Van Wert stickers helped meet
expenses. This year's staff compiled all available past
issues of the Scarlet Quill and had them bound into

Publications Staffs Practice Learned Theories
Making money, taking pictures, making money,
typing, making money and writing copy - these jobs
have kept the Excalibur Staff a very busy group of
workers. In September the staff was organized.
Everyone was placed on either the business staff or
the editorial staff. The school year was started with
the Homecoming Dance sponsored by the Excalibur
Staff. Night after night, they cut prisms, wrapped
prisms, and hung prisms on the three chandeliers
which set a ballroom scene to carry out the theme of
the dance, "The Queen and I". The staff also sold
pennants and mums before the game.
The Excalibur is the product of the entire staff.
During the year the staff sponsored projects such as
the barbeque before the St. Marys game, two penny
lunches, and selling stuffed dogs, shakeroos, and
candy. It took long, tedious hours and many blue
slips to count those tax stamps. The year closed with
concentration on the sales campaign and the final ef-
forts of the editorial staff. They suffered from loss of
sleep, writers' cramp, and other problems, but they
finished at last. This is your Excalibur. The staff
hopes you like it.

assemblies. During football Season all cheer sessions were
held in the stadium.
Yea team, fight, fight, fight! I've
been lending my voice to yours in
cheering our football, basketball and
baseball teams on to victory. I'm really
glad to see the wonderful school spirit
of the student body, and the good
sportsmanship displayed on the grid-
iron, the basketball court, and the dia-
mond. Even the girls get into the ath-
letic act with speedball, basketball,

Success was the word that spelled Van Wert's 1956
football team. Before the season began, the fans looked at
Van Wert's record and said, "It can't be done!" But it was
done, and in sensational way. The Cougars Hnished their
third consecutive undefeated season and captured their
twelfth Western Buckeye League title.
The credit for being the "brains behind the brawn" goes
to Coach Gil Smith, whose ingenuity has guided the Cou-
gars in their twenty-ninth consecutive victory skein. Some
of the well-deserved credit also goes to the two assistant
coaches, Otis Coon and Nick Klutka.
Five Van Wert seniors were chosen on the all-stars of
the Western Buckeye League. They were as follows: first
offensive team, Ron Dierks, halfbackg Bill Winters, centerg
Larry Feeney, tackle: and Lary Smith, end. Places on the
first defensive team went to: Larry Smith, endg Larry
Feeney, tackle, John Edwards, guardg and Ron Dierks,
halfback. Dierks also was named the league's Most Out-
standing Back. Players who received honorable mention in
the league were: Dave Gamble, end: Jerry Baer, quarter-
backg Jerry Nills, tackleg Don Black, linebackerg Charles
Young, halfbackg and Larry Bowersock, fullback.
We wish next year's team all the success that we had in
keeping the victory string intact.
Coaches suffer tension during crucial play.

Van Wert High School is proud of its
freshman football team known as the Year-
lings. This year they started off with a con-
vincing victory over Rockford 26-0. Coldwater
beat them 20-13, and they lost to Lima Shaw-
nee 18-48 and to Defiance 7-26. With the
knowledge of fundamentals taught by Coach
Cline and the experience gained through stiff
competition, these players should become val-
uable members of the varsity team.

This year Van Wert's basketball team had an unpredictf
able season. After getting off to a poor start, the Cougars
were able to win most of their later games. Although the
Cougars defeated some of the better teams in the league.
they finished third in the league. Bryan smashed the teams
tournament hopes. The cagers finished the season with an
overall record of eight wins and eight losses, Their league
record was better with four Wins and three losses,

they did play some impressive games, The sound defeat ol

The reserve team, after getting OH to a slow start,
began clicking in midseason. They made up for lack
of height by speed. Under the expert direction of
Coach Cline, they learned to out-maneuver the taller
players. The power, speed, and agility acquired this
year should pay big dividends for the varsity squad
The freshman basketball team had a very impres-
sive season. Under the skillful direction of Coach
Stoops, they were runners-up in the freshman tour-
nament at Celina. They should be valuable additions

On September 10, 1956, we seniors enrolled at
our Alma Mater for the last time.
We started the year gloriously as eight seniors led
off in an undefeated football season. We were proud
of the seven who served on the basketball squad and
of the five who ably led us through our baseball sea-
son. Cheering our teams on to victory were four
peppy senior girls: Carol Grindahl, Marie Lewis,
Janice Prior, Diane Roth.
Leaders of our class served as presidents of other
organizations: Jerry Baer, Student Council, Jean
Bennett, Youth for Christ, Nan Cowan, Senior Y-
Teens, Rendezvous Committee, Sally Coombs,
F. T. A.g Terry Devine, National Honor Societyg Ron
Dierks, Senior Class, V Clubg Jackie Hoghe, G. A. A.,
Janet Monce, Poster Club, Larry Smith, Senior
Hi-Y, Bill Winters, V.I.C.
Many seniors took charge of Homecoming festivi-
ties. Elected to the royal throne as queen was Nan
Cowan, and as her attendant, Janice Prior. Janice
reigned as Queen Jubilee XIII of the Annual Peony
This year thirty seniors participated in the a cap-
pella choir activities, and twenty played in the band.
Adding spice and charm to the band were majorettes
Sally Coombs and Nan Cowan.
Two of our senior girls took the DAR Citizenship
test, fourteen of the boys served as Junior Rotarians,
and Judy Harden was a state speech contestant.
Sixteen brave seniors struggled through the Na-
tional Merit Scholarship test, and three of them
ranked in the upper two per cent of all seniors in
Ohio and received letters of recommendation for

Hello! You may not know who I am, but
I know you. I'm Cougie, the spirit of Van
Wert High School. Very few of you have seen
me because I'm invisible most of the time. But
I'm always around whenever any high school
activities take place. And this year I've really
been busy - from selling popcorn at football
games to passing out diplomas at commence-
ment and making my debut in the Excalibur.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
We're just swell,
We're just great,
'Cause we're the class
This, the unofficial cheer of this year's junior class, is just one ex-
ample of our growing realization that we are a unit, as well as 122 in-
dividuals. We cheered, as a class, for our fifteen boys on the football
team, our four boys on the basketball team, and our ten boys on the
baseball team. We were all proud of our majorettes, Dorothy Laing
and Nancy Willimang our cheerleaders, Carol Hesher 4VarsityJ and
Opal Clouse fReserveJ. Everyone approved of Beverly Germann as our
Homecoming attendant. We elected Mary Blake, Dorothy Laing, Don
Black, Beverly Germann, and Joyce Feasby to the Student Council.
Many of us participated in speech activities. Chris Griffiths won
the county "I Speak for Democracy" contest. Susan Sheldon went to
state declamation contest. Carolyn Blackmore, Margaret Ainsworth,
Susan Sheldon, and Sally Thompson were Prince of Peace entrants.
We had twenty-nine students in a cappella choir and fourteen in band.
Twenty-two people from our class took part in our Hrst class play,
"Seventeen". These people were presidents of organizations: Chris
Griffiths, Masque and Gavel, National Thespians, Junior Classg Joyce
Tope, F. H. A., and Larry Pennell, Science Club. We had thirteen stu-
dents on the scholarship team and five were chosen for Honor Society.
Our two main projects were class rings and prom. Jona Runnion,
Jim lmler, Mary Jane Ross, Chris Griffiths, and Reg Burley did an
excellent job choosing our rings. The Prom committee took charge of
all moneymaking projects. Our class play, penny lunch, movie, and
spaghetti supper gave us enough for a wonderful Prom. Everyone
worked hard to help make this one of the most wonderful years our
class has ever known.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Webster says that history is "an orderly written record of events".
If so, the history of the class of '59 should really start when our fathers
choked on their doughnuts and coffee as our mommies told them that
a part of the class of 1959 was on its way. We successfully waded
through the escapades of Mac and Muff in the first grade, and then
suffered through eight years of addition and subtraction, nouns and
pronouns, history and geography until finally we came to be the Soph-
omore Class of 1957.
This year we were well represented in all organizations. Jean Hirn
served as president for Latin Club while Mary Ellen Keith took the
captain's wheel in Jr. Y-Teens. In the newly organized freshman and
sophomore Hi-Y, Pat Hallam was chief. Cheering the fourteen boys on
the football team and the two on the basketball team were Judy Mc-
Collum, varsity cheerleader, and Sandy Miller, Charlotte Sherman,
and Shelbyan Noggle, reserve cheerleaders. Batting the ball around
this spring were seven boys. In the speech department Karen Geisman
and Sally Stewart travelled all the way to state contest with their ora-
tions. Out of the 156 in the sophomore class we had thirty tooting
their horns in the band and thirty-eight exercising their lungs in the
choir. Proudly strutting in front of the band were majorettes Sara
Drury, Helen Keirns, and Karen Geisman. Our Homecoming attendant
was Elise Hoeken. On the scholarship team we had sixteen members.
We elected Judy McCollum, Mary Ellen Keith, Jean Hirn, Pat Hal-
lam, and Jim Bebout to Student Council. Our class held a successful
dance on March 9.
After being able to survive Julius Caesar and A Tale of Two Cities,
it is certain that we'1l survive the next two years. We are looking for-
ward to them with great anticipation.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
Now that we have put the title "Greenies" behind us for
at least three more years, we can honestly say that we have
enjoyed every minute of our freshman year.
We crawled timidly into the business of electionsg but,
seeing no ogres or witches to grab at our democratic rights,
we successfully installed exactly the right people in the right
positions. The important and rather glamorous jobs on the
Rendezvous Committee were handled very well by Barbara
Gerrnann, Phil Holtschult, Joy Smith, and Bill Stanley. Rep-
resenting the freshmen on the Student Council were Allan
Runser, Rick Counsellor, Hal Scott, Bill Stanley, and Jane
Weeks. Our class seems to have a good future in the V. W.
H. S. sports picture. Barb Germann and Joy Smith, our re-
serve cheerleaders, proudly cheered for twelve boys on the
freshman football team, five on the varsity squad, thirteen
on the freshman basketball team, and one who played reserve
basketball. We chose Sue Prior to be our attendant to the
We groaned together over the I.Q., Kuder Preference
fremernber the little pins?l, and Iowa testsg but they did help
us to understand ourselves better. Now with such a busy year
behind us, we are looking forward to even busier and better
years in the future.
