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.

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.

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 Rhapsodiers from St. Maryls. All in all, the evening was a memorable occasion and a highlight of the school year.

In keeping with the theme, "A Stranger in Paradise," Lincoln gym was transformed into a beau- tiful Oriental garden. Colorful murals de- picted cherry trees in bloom, flower gar- dens, and country landscape. Japanese lanterns defined the lavender crepe paper ceiling, and in the corner were colored lights spotting four delicate fountain sprays. Dancing was from nine to twelve to the music of Woody Neff and his orchestra. Chris Grimths, the junior class president, welcomed the guests, and Ron Dierks, the senior class president, responded. The Etz- ler sisters entertained with singing at intermission. The service clubs of Van Wert spon- sored another all-night party this year. Prom, a double-feature movie, refresh- ments and games at the Armory, and breakfast at the Presbyterian Church kept the promenaders happy from dusk to dawn. Filmy formals, divine dates, and mood music made this a Prom to be long remembered. i' r 'W Y HF' H X -1 S L Mttml, I Hz, l',ll J.'!,,"p'l MW r f 1 yy, ' I 1 f If 2' 'U ,?:l2 vf . 7f""' x f ' 544' lf' I f 'ln ,'1 F if f ' I a vi fa.

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 Government 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 court and tried a traflic case involving a Van Wert student. The court proved its integrity with a wise decision and a just sentence. A student government is often difficult to establish but our Student Council has proved to be a suc- cessful one. Top: Student Council members take the lead in keeping our school clean and neat.

A new organization made its debut in our high school this year. The Poster Club, initi ated by Mr. Forwalter, the new art instructor, was created to fill the constant demand for advertising material. In a flurry of paste, scissors, paper, and paint, the young artists were kept busy mak- ing posters for the bake sales. Homecoming, barbeque, penny lunches, movies, and various dances that were held throughout the year. Working on the scenery for Vocal Varieties provided the club members with valuable ex- perience in the Held of painting and design. Although the students did the work on these projects during their art period, they gained a great deal of experience from the practical application of the techniques they learned during class time.

The Masque and Gavel Club, an organization open to students interested in any phase of speech, maintained a very active schedule this year. Members of each class prepared programs for the meetings, and the group presented programs for seventeen dif- ferent organizations in Van Wert. The debate teams began the season with a prac- tice session at Ohio State University. They partici- pated in tournaments at Marysville and Delaware- Willis and competed in the Bowling Green District Contest. The varsity team won second place in the district. The declamation team participated in four divi- sions: oratory, humorous, original oratory, and dra- matic. Judy Harden won first place in original ora- tory and Sally Stewart placed second. Karen Geis- man captured first place in straight oratory. Sue Sheldon placed second in dramatics and Sally Thompson was named alternate. Lois Hoffman was the alternate in the humorous division. The Thespians held an induction banquet on May 23 at which they welcomed eighteen new members. The program consisted of a cutting from Noel Cow- ard's Blithe Spirit and the presentation of awards. Sally Coombs and Chris Griffiths were each awarded a cup for their outstanding debating. Judy Harden won the Outstanding Thespian of the Year award. In its second year, our Thespian Troupe won seventh ranking in the state. " , I' 'l.-'T' L , ALLEN COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY VllQWNXlU IUMIMNl VI Q.. l?7VX,', If! 9 .4 gl!! h' 'v- Q V 'Z -'W ' if ' ' .

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.

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 murderer." Z' Martha and Milt argue after they leam of Joey's death. Martha rebukes Milt for his refusal to fight. 5' 1 ,, ,M , 5,?""'Q'Q?f :1--1i':4ff:..XfNf YW?

Pep band provides rousing music for all pep assemblies. Exchange gifts are distributed at the band's Christmas Banquet. From the opening day ot' school to the closing day and on through the summer, a hand member's lite is neither all work and no play nor all play and no work. Alter a few weeks' rest following school, the band, minus the seniors and plus the new treslinien, starts preparing tor summer concerts to he presented at the ice eream sot-ials. A trip to the Ohio State Fair makes a welcome break in the tough training and re-conditioning period designed to transform beginners into precision experts able to march down the tield at one hundred eighty steps a minute playing instru- ments and staying in straight lines. The band gets its tirst tryout at marching on the 'llhursday ot' the Van VVert Vounty Fair. ln the afternoon, the band plays during the races, When school begins, the band provides music and enter- tainment at the football games and pep assemblies. Shortly before Vlirist mas, came the transition from Illiilflllllg band to concert band. The concert band pre- sented the Christmas vespers with the ehoir, gave a formal 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 for new uniforms, instruments, and travel expenses. This year we sponsored a tag day and a cake mix sale. We pur- chased eight new basses and two alto clarinets. Some of many city-wide events which the hand partci- pated in this year arei Peony Festival, Halloween Parade, Memorial Day Parade, dedication of a statue at the Bor- den's Cheese Factory, and ground-breaking ceremony at the Central.

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. Z pelli, Roberta Harden, Dorothy Week.

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. Snowball highlights the Christmas season ta?

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.

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. Sally Coombs ,... ...,... P resident Judy Harden ,... ..., V ice President. Linda Feasby ..,. .........

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 a single volume. 1'I V I- J ff? rl ,QQ :JV get 3?

S econd semester editor 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. Sally Coombs- - - ...,,,,,,,..,..

Row three: Coach Smith, Coach Coon, Richard Grove, Gary Patterson, 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.

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, The Cougars didn't have an outstanding record. but they did play some impressive games, The sound defeat ol the Kenton Wildcats marked the high point ot' the season. ln this game, Don Good, forward. established what is be- lieved to be a new all-time individual scoring record for a Cougar player. Seniors on this year's squad were Ron Dierks, Dave Gamble, Jerry Baer, Larry lJui'heney, Don Good, Jim Smith, and Larry Smith. Three Cougar players were named on the Western Buckeye League All-Star teams. They were: Don Good, tirst team forward, Larry Smith, second team center, and Dave Gamble. third team guard.

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 next year. 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 to the varsity teams of the next three years.

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 Festival. 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 scholarships.

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 Of '58! 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.

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 Homecoming queen. 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. Sue Prior 98
