The class of 1958 very proudly dedicates this fortieth volume of
the Excalibur to Mr. Smith. We take this method of honoring him
not only for a job well done in the classroomg but also for his superior
coaching of the football teams, which enabled us to complete four,
great, undefeated seasons. It is with appreciation that we dedicate
our Excalibur to you, Coach Smith .

FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS: Chuck Fowler, president, Connie Tabor, Treasurer,
Jean Ann Campton, Secretary, Dave Feasby, Vice President.
On September 9, 1957, Van Wert High School was invaded by a hoard of 194
little green people, freshmen.
The first thing we did was to elect our class ollicers, Next, we elected Jerry
Butler, Dave F easby, Barb Geary, and Mary Ann Hedges members of the Rendez-
vous Committee. Earl Sherburn, Chuck Fowler, Loretta Keirns, Carolyn Bailey, and
Jean Campton were elected to serve on the Student Council.
Carol Niles, Jean Campton, Verona Witherow, and Sue Stewart were the four
freshman girls on the reserve cheerleading squad. Fourteen of our boys played on
the freshman basketball team, and twenty-six played on the freshman football team.
Five played on the varsity team. For our Homecoming attendant, we chose a cute
pixie, Loretta Keirns.
Carolyn Bailey and Barb Geary were majorettes, and Peg Blake served as an
alternate. Twenty-five of our music lovers represented us in the band g eighty-one,
in the freshman chorus.
This year, Sharon McCarty and Jean Campton became members of the Decla-
mation team. Alice Stemcn, Grace Phenegar, and Sue Stewart were members of the
varsity debate tcam. Ronald Zinsmeister was a member of the reserve debate squad.
We have walked through one of the four doors to success. Some of us have
run, and some have stumbled, but we will keep trying.

Sophomores look down from lofty heights
These four people led the sophomore class: Paul Laemmle, Allan Runser, Nancy Rager, and
Our sophomore year was a big surprise to us. All at once, it seemed as though
we had so much more responsibility 5 but we quickly dived right in.
At the head of our class, we placed Paul Laemmle, president. We elected Rick
Counsellor, Sue Prior, Bill Stanley, Jane Weeks, Karen Wierwille, and Paul Laemmle
to represent us on the Student Council. Allan Runser did a very efficient job as the
chief of the Freshman-Sophomore Hi-Y. The reins were given to Sue Prior as the
competent president of the Jr. Y-Teens.
We are really proud of the ten football players and the eight reserve and one
varsity basketball players. Barb Germann, Joy Smith, fvarsityj and Karen Bagley
freservel did a wonderful job cheering for the Cougars.
We had twenty-eight members in A Cappella choir and thirty-one members
working in band. Sharon Boyd made a very good majorette. Karen Wierwille was
the Sophomore girl chosen to be attendant to the Homecoming Queen.
Even though, at one time or another, each one of the 171 students has had
trouble focusing his eyes during classes, each one can truthfully admit that it has been
a worthwhile and very enjoyable experience being part of the Sophomore class

On September 9, 1957, 138 juniors, assured and perhaps a bit condescending
to their younger comrades, entered once again the familiar halls of Van lVert High.
The juniors were very active this year. These people were presidents: Elise
Hoeken, FNA and Pat Hallam, Jr. class. We were all very proud of our boys in
sports, l+l- on the football team and six on the basketball team. The cheerleaders who
helped to give the boys the spirit to win were Charlotte Sherman, Sandra Miller,
Judy McCollum, and Sandra Arnold. For our Homecoming attendant we chose
Jean Hirn. Helen Keirns, Sara Drury, and Karen Geisman marched in front of the
band as our majorettes. Forty juniors added their lusty voices to the choir, and
twenty-six contributed their talent to the band. Prince of Peace entrants were:
Karen Geisman, Trina Jackson, Roberta Harden, Jean Hirn, Judy McCollum, Ann
Good, Garol Kinsey, and Helen Keirns. David Fell represented the juniors on the
debate team. Ann Good, Jean Hirn, Judy McCollum, Rodger Bechtol, Karen Geis-
man, and Sally Stewart were members of the declamation team. Members of the
Student Gouncil were: Jim Bebout, Pat Hallam, Judy McCollum, Elise Hoeken,
Mary Ellen Keith, Jean Hirn, Don Beck, Rodger Bechtol, Judy McCollum, Helen
Keirns, Mary Ellen Keith, Jim liebout, and Pat Hallam made up the ring committee.
Our prom committee sponsored a movie and a dance. The junior class as a
whole sold tickets for chances on boxes of Valentine candy to raise money for Prom.
The juniors certainly had a profitable and joyous year, and we are looking for-
ward to the last step in our career at V.W.H.S.

The Senior Y Teens, a very active organization
in Van Wert High School, is open to all girls in the
junior and senior classes. Although they have fun, much
of their time is spent with service projects. At Christmas
time, a CARE package was sent to a European family.
The girls contributed much of their time to soliciting
for the Polio Fund. At the beginning of the year, all
of the members of the club joined in the huge shoe
polish sale which was the only means of financing for
the entire year. In the spring, they joined the Jr. Y
Teens in presenting the Easter program, helping to plan
the annual Y Teen banquet, and attending the semi-
formal Y Teens dance.
Small committee meetings take care of a greater
part of the business.
Attendance at meetings is large, and rooms are
always packed to the bursting point.
The first event on the agenda of the Jr. Y Teens
was induction service held in October of 1957. As
ofhcial Y Teen members, they joined with girls from all
over the county for the annual Fall Y Teen Round Up.
To raise money, the girls planned and contributed to a
bake sale at the Marsh Hotel. Inspired by reports from
the Senior Y Teens, the freshmen and sophomores con-
tact.ed the Jr. Hi-Y. The outcome was a very successful
joint meeting. The party which followed the meeting
was so much fun that further joint meetings seem

The candle lighting at the Hi-Y induction service is
always an impressive ceremony.
The Hi-Y has always been a popular club. Perhaps
the reason for it's popularity is the fact that each year
brings new projects. This year, besides selling pop at
ball games to raise money, the boys took over a really
diflierc-nt service. Each of the members began resembling
bunnies as all the boys hid eggs for the Easter egg hunt at
the Y.M.C.A. Larry Pennell was the ollicial represent-
ative at the Hi-Y district conference in Findlay.

The Jr. Hi-Y does not seem like a young,
Junior Hi-Y meetings are conducted with utmost dignity
two-year-old club. This well-organized group has
a good future because of careful planning. Last
summer, Bill Stanley, Paul Laemmle, and Doug
Maxim attended the Camp Nelson Dodd Ofhcer
training session. Their meetings have been varied.
One evening, they could be found listening in-
tently to Mr. ,Davis' lecture on parliamentary
procedure, the next, enjoying some World Series
films. In February, the boys aided the Heart Fund
by soliciting for donations. Allan Runser repre-
sented the club at the Junior Legislature.
The FTA is an organization open to anyone in
high school who is interested in preparing for the
teaching profession. Student teaching is the main
project of FTA because it provides for practical, on-
the-job experience. This year, almost all of the mem-
bers had several opportunities to substitute for the
city teachers at in-service training throughout the
year. Our FTA chapter is a member of the State and
National FTA. The members had an opportunity to
hear the State director of FTA, John Hall, and an
older and a younger teacher from the Van Wert
City Schools system give their reasons for entering
and remaining in the teaching profession. There is
a larger membership in FTA this year than any other
year in the history of the activity in Van Wert High

Many of the girls in our school who are inter-
ested in the nursing profession have found that the
FNA provides a chance for organized research into
the opportunities of this varied vocation. The girls
made several Held trips to different hospitals. Their
purpose was to see the nursing profession First-hand
and to observe some of the buildings in which they
may some day be working, hut they found that the
fun they had made the trips doubly enjoyable. They

As usual, the FHA had a
busy year, and undertook many
outstanding projects. The FHA
is an organization to encourage
and aid the girls who are, inter-

year began with a sub-regional
conference, and continued with
the formal initiation of officers,
the programs based on foreign
countries, and the YVOWO rec-

honor to her club when she was
elected State FHA secretary. The

that the relaxing game of golf is one of the most
enjoyable of sports. Although some have been
playing for years, we have never before had an
organized golf team. This year, with the co-
operation of the Wlillow Bend Country Club, the
boys have proved that they have what it takes
to become top golfers. They have already defeated
many of the top schools in the area and hope to

The Hon1ecoming festivities this year began
with the barbecue which was sponsored by the
Excalibur staff. At the half of a very satisfying game
with Bellefontaine, Queen Beverly Germann was
officially crowned by last year's monarch, Nan Co-
wan. Her roses were presented by football co-captain,
Jerry Nills. Following the game, the Queen and her
court, escorted by their class presidents, made a grand
entrance and officially began the homecoming dance.
The Homecoming dance, held in Lincoln Auditorium,
was a Crowded success.
The theme of the festivities, "Deep Purplef' was
carried out in music and color. A huge silver crown
hung from the middle of a false ceiling of shades of
purple scattered with silver stars. During the inter-
mission, the Queen and her court were presented
with gifts from the Excalibur staff. The whole
affair, sponsored by the Excalibur staff, was their
first and largest undertaking of the year.

A CAPPELLA CHOIR
The choir room resounded this year with
spirituals, simple hymns, Christmas music, novelty
numbers, and diflicult choral arrangements. As
usual, these numbers were all performed with the
clarity of tone, the perfection of enunciation, and
the deep sincerity which have made Van Wert
choirs among the most outstanding in the state.
The Christmas and contest seasons were the busi-
est for the choir this year. During the Christmas
season, countless performances were given all over
the city of Van VVert. The choir distinguished
itself by again receiving superior ratings in both
the district and state music contests. The choir,
under the direction of Mr. Jones, has continued to
uphold the high standards which have been set.

Van Wert High School's first all-school play was a huge success.
Almoxt Summer, a light comedy, was about typical teen-agers, and each
character Fit his part to perfection. Paul Jones, a handsome high school
senior, has let too many activities interfere with his studies, Although he
is assured that he will graduate, there is some doubt whether or not he
will be accepted by the university. His friend, Jack, is having the same
difficulty. They both must pass a final history exam with a score of
ninety-five to graduate in the necessary upper third of their class.
The main worry of both boys is that they will not be able to spend
the summer at the lake with their girls if they have to attend summer
school. Jack's sister Jane, Paul's girl, and Paul's sister Mary, Jack's girl,
are sympathetic, but they do not let the problem bother them too much.
Paul's younger brother, Junior, is ecstatic at the idea that he may be able
to inherit Paul's new beach ensemble.
Too impatient to "cram", Jack takes Paul's flashlight and breaks
into Mr. Smudgley's office to peek at the exam answers. He leaves very
quickly, dropping Paul's flashlight. Confronted by the evidence, Paul is
unable to explain and loses the respect of his family and friends.
Junior, who has made his dislike for girls evident to his family, is
visited by Lilah, uthe girl he asked to go steady for the next eleven years."
Afraid that his family will come in and find them together, Junior sends
Lilah to the basement to hide.
When Mr. Smudgley reports the boy's test scores, Paul learns that he
has honestly earned the required ninety-Eve. Jack unmeaningly reveals
that he has cheated and is sentenced to a whole summer of study. Jane
promises to go steady with Paul, and all seems perfect until Lilah bursts
through the kitchen door covered with coal dust. The curtain closes on
four couples, three contented and one ehagrined.

Combined teams win Ohio High School
Speech League District Sweepstakes.
Every year, speech competition becomes rougher
in Ohio, but V.W.H.S. seems to be rising to meet it.
For the First time, our team won honors in every de-
partment of the Ohio High School Speech League
district tournament and walked away with the sweep-
stakes trophy. All year long, the battle cry of the
kids was: "Get the trophy for Mr. Coon," and they

succeeded. Because of constant practising, a speech
contestant carries a rough scheduleg but he is re-
quired to keep his grades above his average or be
dropped from the team. Besides the O.H.S.S.L.
trophy, the teams won several honors all year long
in N.F.L. contest, climaxing with their amazing first-
year record at the Final Ohio N.F.L. tournament.
Mr. Coon receives the trophy.

SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
The Seniors greeted their last year with mixed
emotions. Most of us were enthusiastic about our
futures, but, at the same time, we regretted having
to leave the comfort, security, and the familiar,
friendly atmosphere of V.W.H.S.
We had a good year to end our high school
careers. Of course, we will never forget our pride in
being the first class to leave school never knowing a
defeat in football. Many of us assumed positions of
responsibility and achieved honors. The following
seniors were presidents of organizations: Reg Burley,
Thespians and Masque and Gavel, Ron Sherer, Stu-
dent Council g Mary Jane Ross, FTA, Carol Hesher,
GAAQ Joyce Feasby, Senior Y Teens, Jerry Nills,
Rendezvous Committee, Larry Bowersock, Senior
Hi Y 5 Don Black, V Club, Jim Speer, Honor Society,
Dan Butler, V.I.C.
Many seniors participated in the Homecoming
festivities. Bev Germann was our queeng and Nancy
Williman, our attendant. Queen Bev soon distin-
guished herself in several beauty contests, and was
the toast of all Van Wert as a maid of honor in the
Nancy Williman led the marching band this year
as drum majorette.
Carol Hesher was the only senior on the cheer-
leading squad, and she represented us well.
Susan Sheldon, Larry Pennell, and Sally Thomp-
son were state speech contestants.
Five of the 107 candidates for graduation were
elected to the National Honor Society in addition to
the six old members.
Many seniors received awards at the final senior
recognition ceremony. Marcile Merkle led the class
as valedictorian. Among her honors were: the Home-
maker of Tomorrow award, the Black Inc. award,
the D.A.R. Good Citizenship medal, recognition for
placing third in the state in the English scholarship
test, and the girls' American Legion award. Don
Black received the Boys' American Legion award.
Don and Joyce F easby were the receipients of the
Elks' annual award for outstanding seniors which was
presented at the Elks' dance. Many seniors received
certificates for outstanding scores in the Senior Schol-
The choosing of our class motto, "Nothing great
is lightly won", our class colors, purple and white,
and our class Hower, the orchid, was the last offi-
cial act in a wonderful year we can never forget.

CLASS OF 1958
ltis over at last as thc seniors leave the field with their diplomas.
Those last days were hectic. Prom,
Elks Dance, School Play, senior projects,
the last issue of the Quill, the horrible
final exams -- all contributed to the gen-
eral state of exhaustion which prevailed
throughout the senior class. Any normal
person would be relieved to be rid of these
obligations. At the last moment, however,
when we marched to the music of S'Pomp
and Circumstances", many of us had a
lingering feeling of aflection for this
school which we were leaving forever.
