This work was not recognized by the state since no high school had been established. A third grade high school was started in 1915-16 with Mr. Beechy as teacher. This lasted two years, 1915-16-17. Miss Nellie A. Yoder was added to the teaching staff for 1917-18, when the school was made a second grade high school. In 1923 it became a first grade school with three teachers. The new school building was erected during the summer of 1925. In the fall of 1957 the six-six plan was adoptedg that is, six years of grade school and six years of high school. Because of the in- crease of students and extra teacher had to be added to the teaching staff. We now have four high school teachers and quite an active, indus- trious school. illdfilf ll QI 4 'D i VIE A ID II3'D 'D Ili BRIEF HISTORY OF WALNUT GREEK Walnut Greek was laid out in 1826, with Sam Robinson as surveyor. J. B. Schrook, George Kaser, and David Funk also helped to plan the town and lay it out. The first house was not built, however, until l837. David Fate built and lived in the first house, he also became the first justice of the peace. . After several more people had built homes here, small business places started here and there. Soon there was a Cooperage, where Mr. Ridle now has his shop owned by Noah Troyer. A person by the name of Darredinger had a buggy shop where the garage is standing now. There was also at one time a tannery where Lester Flinner's barn is standingg a hotel where they live, owned by Andrew Gable. Ferd Scarr had the first butchershop which stood where W. R. Mastfs barn stands. The first store was in the cellar of the Jaberg house. Later, however, it was moved to the place where the bank is, and still later, where W. R. Mast's old store stood. The first school house, which was a town school builde ing, stood across the road from Leander Wilhelm's house. The school house was not there very long, however, there was another one built behind the house where Mr. and Mrs. John Harris live now. When that school building was no longer good enough, they built a new one where Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Troyer live. In l909 a two-room building was built on the grounds on which the high school now stands. In l936 the people built a real school, so they said. That is the school we are using now. The first name Walnut Greek ever had was New Garlise. The time came when the people of the town wanted a post office. Before New Garlise could have one, it's name had to be changed because there was also a New Carlise in Clark Township that had a post office. The people of the town got together to decide upon a new name. They reasoned like this: the town is in Walnut Creek Township and the Walnut Greek is so close by, so why not call it Walnut Greek? The people agreed to this name so they were ready for the post office. There was no special building for the post office at first, but they had it in the houses. The first post office Walnut Greek had was a house at the site of Lister Gerberfs home now with Melchair Buzzerd as the first post master. The last church service held in a house was in the year 1862. They then went to the church which stood where Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Troyer used to live. There used to be a cemetery behind the house, but during the Givil War the ll QI 41 1D - VIE A ID IBD 1DIIi BRIEF HISTORY OF WALNUT CREEK, CON5T bodies were taken out and laid elsewherer There was another church which stood where Emanual Hershberger lives. The oldest house that is standing in Walnut Creek to- day is the building W. R. Mast used to have for his hard- wares The oldest house in town that has never changed hands, or has always been in the hands of the same family, is the house in which the post office is now. That house and the house in which Thomas Troyer used to live are the two log cabins of Walnut Creek. Dr. Je A. Mast was the Walnut Creek's first doctor. He had his office where W. R. Mastfs new store is. The doctor s office was later moved to the house which is now occupied by Mr. and Hrs. Wilbur Hostetler. Then Dr. Stucky cameg he also used the same office. Drt Hide was in part- nership with Dr. Stucky for a while. After Dru Hide left Dr. Doornblazer became Dr. Stuckyfs partner. After several years, Dr. Doornblazer established an office of his own where Mr. Ridle has his shop. Then came Dr. Olmstead, using the same office, and after him came Dr. Bahler. Our town has been exceedingly fortunate in having had resident doctors almost continually, a rather unusual thing for small villages. Although the town has as yet very few businesses which employ many people, it is continually growing as is evidence by the new buildings being erected. The scenic beauty of its surroundings shall, no doubt, always be a factor induc- ing people to establish homes in Walnut Creek. INGIDENTS OF LONG AGO The AbsentHMinded Reverend The pastor of the Walnut Creek Church during the first few years of this century was visiting one evening at the home of a church member. One of the children, playing up- stairs, upset an oil lamp. Everyone grabbed buckets, filled them and ran for the fire. But, lo and behold, the pastor found upon reaching the fire that his bucket didn't have any bottom. The First Settler in Walnut Creek Township According to one of our oldest residents, a trapper who came from Pennsylvania, was the first to establish a home in Walnut Creek Township. He built his cabin in a clearing near the now abandoned Mast's School. He obtained his living by trapping the numberous wild animals which roamed through the forests at that time. ll QI 41 'D VIE AX ID Il31D 40 Ili 1 I.

In addition to those graduating, there were David Hershberger, Floyd Schie, Mary Hostetler, and Ruth Siecrist. After a few weeks of school, we lost David and Floyd. During the second week we were initiated by the seniors. This consisted primarily of eating fish worms Cspaghettij and wearing the distinguishing mark of a band with a feather for a week. We felt ourselves de- cidedly less Hgreensu after this ordeal. We elected Betty Schrock as our president, and Mary Hostetler as our secretary. Four of our class members participated in the county scholarship test: Marion, in Biology, Mary and Mattie, in English, and Loren in Algebra. Marion and Loren each won first plac in the county test. In our Sophomore year we elected Ruth Miller as our president, and Sarah Frances Miller as our secre- tary. Our number decreased to ten when Mary Hostetler dropped out and Ruth Siecrist transferred to another school. We presented a one-act play and an original German playlet which proved quite successful. Again four of our class members participated in the scholarship test with Marion placing first and Loren second in General Science. Rollin Hamsher was a member of the varsity basketball squad. Sarah Fran- cis and Rollin helped to give the seniors a grand Usend offn by being an Indian waiter and waitress, respectively, at the Junior-Senior Banquet. September, nineteen hundred and thirty eight, found ten back as Juniors. This year we elected Marion Weaver as president and Rollin Hamsher as secretary. On April 8, l959, we presented a play named USonbonnet Jane of Sycamore Lane.U This year six of our class members participated in the scholarship test with Loren Hostetler tieing for first and Marion Weaver second in American History.

Sarah Frances Miller won the local peace contest and represented us in the County. May l7, 1939, we gave the seniors a banquet which was the most beautiful that we have ever had in our school. After completing numerous guitars as favors, and painting the long motto chosen by the Seniors, HClimb, though the rocks be rugged,W and giving the Seniors a flowery Commencement, we felt quite ready to become dignified Seniors ourselves. In l939 we all came back as Seniors. We elected Loren Hostetler as our president and Betty Schrock as our secretary. After the first week of school we initiated the freshmen class. Sarah Frances Miller again participated in the local peace contest, rating second. Loren Hostetler and Rollin Hamsher played on the baseball team which won each game but one. All the boys of the Senior Class were part of the basket- ball squad that won the county tournament. Rollin Hamsher was again captain of the team. The four Senior boys surprised the Juniors by capturing the class tournament which they had won each year previous to this one. This year six members of our class participated in the scholarship test. Loren Hostetler and Marion Weaver took the scholarship test. In the County Scholarship Test Mattie Gerber and Marion Weaver participated in English, Loretta Vogt and Betty Schrock in Latin, and Loren Hostetler in Physics. May 4, we gave a three-act Senior play named HA Ready Made Family.H May l3, the Baccalaureate Services were held. May l6, the Juniors gave us a banquet which we enjoyed very much. May l7, 1940, the Commencement activities were held. These last few activities ended our high school life. To the Juniors we wish our best for the work which shall fall upon them as Seniors.

What the future held for these has been , partly revealed to us and the world. , Daniel Maust was elected president of the Freshmen class. These Freshmen began to demonstrate their abili- ties. Victor Stauffer and Sue Mast won second and third, respectively, in the Prince of Peace Contest. Dorothy ' Mast and Doran Hershberger won second and third in-that, order in the English Scholarship Tests at Millersburg, while Ralph Miller won first in Algebra.

Maxine Troyer was elected secretary. Our class was again active in the County Scholarship Tests. Junior Mast was second in history, Dorothy second in English, and Doran was first in algebra, second in Kent, and sixth in the state. At the reorganization of the Junior year, Doran was elected president of the Junior Class and Sue was elected secretary. In the Prince of Peace Contest, Sue Mast won first in the elimination contest, first in the County, and ranked high in the district. We hope she will go even farther in her Senior year. By this time all the classmates know that Sue is the dramatist of the class. We were sorry to see Orpha Weaver leave school the first semester. We presented a three-act play entitled WThe Adven- tures of Tom Sawyer.n Six of our members helped to win the basketball tournament championship. ' The test of our ability of the year, however, came when it was time for us to duly help the Senior Class have a pleasant farewell to their school year. The banquet and the decorations for the baccalaureate and commencement exercises became an interesting, as well as busy, project for us. They provided a real test for our abilities and originality. It is only through the grace of the Seniors that we are able to introduce ourselves to you. It is only through their initiative and hard work that the annual Can be published. In consideration of this, we, the Junior Glass, hope their project is a wonderful success. ll QI! 4 'D VEADBDUM sornouoar oriss Back row - left to right Myron Gerber Paul Miller Richard Gerber Darold Miller Violet Mae Sundheimer Ruth Gardner Mr. Amstutz, Faculty Advisor Front row - Doris Hostetler Dorothy Schrock Oma Hershberger Russell Miller, President Norma Zook, ViceHPresident Oneta Hershberger Billy Lengacher - Absent when picture was taken - Orpha Ellen Miller SOPHOSCOPE Orpha Ellen Miller was born June 38, 1924, near Walnut Greek.

They won seventeen out of twenty-two games played which is a good record. After losing the county league championship they came back in the end and won the county tournament. They took the tournament from the league championship team in the finals by playing a cool headed and cooperative game. They had to work hard for everything they got, but finally came through victorious. The team had its successful season not by luck, but by hard work and patience. It was through the fine training of the squad, the never ending patience and skill of Coach Ralph Sundheimer, and the fine coopera- tion whioh existed between the coach and players that brought the results. . Besides winning the Tournament Championship Trophy, some of the players also won individual awards. One player, Edward Hershberger, was placed on the All County first team, and Captain Rollin Hamsher and Howard Schrook on the second team. They were awarded with individual trophies. The varsity teams consisted of Edward Hershberger and Howard Schrock as forwardsg Rollin Hamsher CCapt.D, centerg Junior Mast, Richard Hamsher, and Ralph Miller as guards. The last few games of the season were played without ther service of Junior Mast because of an in- jured ankle. However, his ankle got in playing condi- tion for the last two games of the county tournament. His absence from the team for a few games proved that he was a great benefit to the team. ll QI! 41 'D WYEADBDUM The second team consisting of Junior Hecker, Glenn Immel, Loren Hostetler, Marion Weaver, and Doran Hershberger also had a successful season. They won eleven out of sixteen games played, which was at good record. The second team was also coached by Ralph Sundheimer and showed a great deal of coopera4 tions ' Walnut Greek has had a successful season even with odds and ends such as lack of players and injuriestf We hope that next year the squad at Walnut Greek will have an even more successful season. ikikakvlfvkik CHEER LEADERS In the fall Ruth Miller, Sarah Frances Miller, and Lillian Sue Troyer were elected cheer leaders by ' osition the student body.

' , First, a good ball diamond is often not available, second, there as no known way of making it selfvsupportingg third, it is eldom that the entire squad is present for practice due to'homeworkC In our school these handicaps were met in theifollowing manner. The town team permitted us to use their diamond. We appreciate their kindness. It'is a good diamond which deserves care in its use. It is, how- ever, oo far away for noon practices. The financiali problems were solved by using the proceeds from the Fall FarmfEXhibit and some of the basketball game receipts.a The last handicap is hard to overcome, The farmers need the boys during this season, hence, we never demanded the presence of every player. Each boy when he was out for practice was placed in the position that he played in the game. This was the only solution of the problem in our case. The players turned into HBabe Ruthlsn in the Beach City gamer Three home runs, two three baggers, and a number of two-base hits was the record of that game. In the Big Praire game the score was ll to l2 in the fifth and sixth innings, and the boys allowed the opposing team to fill the bases with only one man out. The third out was a great relief to the coach and perhaps to the team, also. More could be said about the thrilling games but rather than telling about them, we hope you will see the future games thereby you will be able to enjoy the thrillers with us. Also, the softball tournament must not be forgotten. It was held at the fair last fall. Walnut Greek came through undefeated, handing the opposing teams three shut outs and winning for themselves the tournament and a trophy.

It enjoyed a very successful season during 1959 and 1940 as attested by the following facts: The team played 15 games and won 10 of them. It de- feated Berlin, Fredricksburg twice, Big Prairie twice, Clark Holmesville, Glenmont, Baltic, and Nashville, losing only to Sugar Creek, Berlin, and to Clark--all on foreign floors. It did not lose a single home game. It lost to Clark by one point, but obtained sweet revenge when it defeated them on the Millersburg floor as a preliminary game during the tournament by doubling the score on them. Berlin defeated us on their floor by only 4 points. An unusual score was recorded in our favor when we white-washed Big Prairie to the tune of 10 to 0. The boys who were the mainstays of A the team were Virgil Troyer and John Gerber as forwards, Robert Schrock as Center, and Harry Gerber and Donald Miller at guard. However, credit must also be given to the able substitutes who warmed the bench a good part of the time, and who will be called upon to take the place of those who will graduate into high school. ll QI 41 'D wwf Q TENTS fm r 9 .QQ V Ke 5 45' 1 1' ki ,, , , !1::.f J img QL- ' fx W -M ,Au '71 F A , E, X-mix ' 4 , . -2- f' Mlv? w 'ffffffffw- 1 P 'Y l . f i-- V..-f . , A..- V I k : -f 4 , , f .,dL,'13g"g4fQ1-1uw- J!!!

' Fifty members took part in the mixed chorus of which Junior Mast was president and Ruth Miller librarian. Dorothy Mast was accompanist. These musical groups have made a number of appear- ances at school programs. Each group presented selections at the Peace Contest, at the Community Meetings, and at the Christmas Program, - Cn March 2, we entered a county music contest in which we presented a boys? ensemble, girls? ensemble, mixed ensemble, and four soloists: Colleen Brand, sopranog Doran Hershberger, baritoneg Sarah Francis Miller, con- traltog and Dorothy Mast, piano. A ll of these groups received a rating of either good or excellentu Three numbers, namely, the mixed ensemble, girls' ensemble, and soprano solo participated in the district contest. The mixed ensemble is eligible to participate in the state contest. March 22, featured our Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs and Mixed Chorus in a County Contest. All did splendidly in this contest. The Boys! Clee Club and the Mixed Chorus were rated excellent and the Girlsi Clee Club was rated superior, They are all eligible to compete in the District Contest at Kent, The musical groups very definitely enhanced the Baccalaureate and Commencement programs with their well- chosen selections. We appreciate that the music of our school is open to every student who wishes to participate rather than 3ust to a select few. Thus, we not only get to develop that talent which we may have, but also to learn an appreciation of music which is really good. we hope our music program may be enlarged to include instru- mental music.

The class whole-heartedly cooperated in the presentation of the program. f ' There seemed to be a bit of hesitanoy on the part of the Sophomores in the presentation of their programs, Mis- understandings about numbers made it necessary for most of these programs to consist of musical numbers by the girls and impromptus and skits by the boys. Probably the most originality was shown in the pro- grams presented by the Freshmen. One of them consisted of an amateur radio program which included a group of varied and versatile numbers. Novelty numbers in music and speech enlivened the tone of the program. The seventh and eighth grades were very energetic in their literary work and entertained and instructed us by short playlets, essays, musical novelties, and recitations. Since no county literary contest was held during this year, we believe our local literaries have helped to give pupils the opportunity to develop their dramatics, literary, and musical abilities. ' CHAPEL The chapel programs on Tuesday of each week and Friday of every second week were arranged by a committee appointed by the student body. This consisted of Mattie Gerber, Junior Mast, Norma Zook, and Miss Troyer. These programs were given by the students, teachers, and quite often by speakers of the community and from a distance. Most of these meetings were of a devotional or instruc- tive nature with an occasional deviation to the humorous. As a whole, we all were greatly impressed by these programs and we wish to thank everyone who took part in giving them.

In plain words, it is a study of birds. It has been in the Walnut Creek High School since l92S. , It was a lovely spring day when everyone was eager to have a Audubon Society. So that day Andrew Mast was elected president and Mattie Gerber was elected secre- tary. The students enrolled at that time are the folw lowing: Andrew Mast, Mattie Gerber, Ruth Miller, Sarah F. Miller, Rollin Hamsher, Nelson Schroek, Ralph Miller, Forrest Wilhelm, Glenn Immel, Edward Hershberger, Junior Mast, and Daniel Maust. In l959, they decided to join the National Associa- tion of Audubon Societies for Juniors. They all got badges which showed they were members. There are twenty- eight members which wer selected Mr. Amstutz as secretary. The members Troyer, Marian Mast, Gl Oneta Hershberger, Grph Norma Zook, Oma Troyer, Russel Miller, Richard e divided in two groups.

' HOT LUNCH HThere is nothing better than the making of a true home, " We hope We have made your school year a bit more homelike because We have given you a warm lunch for your noon meal if you wished to eat with us. It's'lO:3O and six of us, with our teacher, ad- journ to the Home Economics room. Slips with the Work for the meal are lying face down upon the table. We draw to our luck and proceed to prepare soup, fry hamburg, mix fruit salad, or whatever has been our good or bad luck for that day. Hurrye-yes, quite often, for it's only ll:2O and already We hear footsteps coming down the hall. Now for a twenty-minute hustle, for the line of Weatersn is long, and at times our customers are very hungry and rather impatient. But at last even the late comers are served and We relax. Leisurely We six seat ourselves about the table with our food before us and have lots of fun for our hurry is all over and We, too, are by now exceedingly hungry. N949 VIE A ID IBID ID Ili HOT LUNCH, GGNIT. In the meantime, Miss Troyer is completing the sales and stacking the dishes as they are returned to the serving table. The six who have not prepared the meal are the dishwashers for the day. There job is really a job! Thirty minutes may lengthen to an hour before it is all completed and the room again hushed into silence and ready for those nextrasn here and there which must be done for the next day's meal. Yes, itfs real work to serve from thirty-five to ninetynfive people daily, even though our lunches are not elaborate, but we learn to work together and we get a great deal of enjoyment from it. I If you--pupils and parents--have appreciated our work, we are glad for WA word of appreciation is enjoyed by the wisest of men.W P. S. Certainly we cannot forget our carriers, Glenn Immel and Edward Hershberger, who faithfully H luggedn our supplies from the stores every morn- ing with never a frown, even when our order was incomplete and had to send them back.
