THE ANNUAL STAFF
WAYNE GERBER --GOLLEEN BRAND--IMOGENE MILLERf-RUBY SHROCK--
OMA TRUYER--LILLIAN SUE TROYER--RUTH MAST--RICHARD HAMSHER.
Yes, that was the staff, Not a very big crowd of us. -- Who was the
editor and so forth? Well, I guess we were all a little of everything,
Here come some of our experiences,
Since Christmas we talked annual and had class meetings but we didn't
get too much done. But after several more class meetings we actually got
started at least.
Our first lessons in salesmanship were to begin, Our first victims
were the Millersburg stores, The first place we tackled brought us no
results--rather discouraging for a beginning, But we mustered up enough
courage to tackle the second place, Ah, our partners came out smiling
from their first venture-why not? They had five dollars in their pockets.
We trudged on. Life brings varied experiences and so does collect-
ing advertising. Some said, nget outn evgn before we atated our business.
QDid we look that bad?J Others said, athe Government takes half of our
money already - what have we to advertise with yet?N CWe sympathized,
went on.D Still others were just so helpful that we began to enjoy our
job, Yes, back to the car we would go to exchange experiences with our
fellow Hjobbersu, and then away we would go, Well, we left well satis-
fied, for we appreciated everything. Yes, indeed, we surely did,
It was Imogene's lucky day. Yes, she really worked hard and got
s5o,oo worth of advertising in one day. Thanks, Imogene, you are our
high-top business woman. She not only held the money as our treasurer,
but collected her share of it too.
By the way, Richard Hamsher, did you have a lucky day in advertising?
Not by the looks of things. You must have dealt with unreasonable business
And now we are ready to produce the written productions. We realy
mean business now. All material must be in by April 15. Glass meetings-Q
more class meetings--and still more. Notices appear on all boards -
uMaterial must be in.W That's the spirit, Freshmen, you were really on
time. --Material comes in -- slow but sure, we hope. Lillian and Colleen
share honors for writing and writing some more, Thank you, it surely helped
Miss Troyer typed as fast as she could and yet we had some last
minute news, But now that we are finished, we hope that everyone will
feel that the work was worth it, and probably the few gray hairs can be
dyed, We hope everyone who receives an annual will get lots of enjoyment
out of it.

SENIOR CLASS HISTGRY
In September, 1938, a group of twenty-one nervous, eagerufaced
Hgreeniesu boarded the ship HEducationH which was journeying another of
its numerous four year trips through the uSea of Wisdomn.
The first several weeks were spent in stumbling around, awkwardly
trying to find the rooms of the different recitations.
Almost immediately we were ordered to elect class officers. The re-
sults were: President, Marian Mastg Vice President, Norma Zookg Secretary,
Already in our first year, we began showing our literary abilities.
Orphe,Ellen Miller was a contestant in the Peace Oration Contest. Oma
Hcrshberger and Oneta Hershberger presented humorous readings, and Norma
Zook, Marian Mast and Oneta Hcrshberger were actresses in the one act play.
The bous too had their share of activity, as William Lengacher,
Paul Miller, and Russell Miller entered basket ball and baseball activities.
Oma Hershberger won first place in the county scholarship contest in
We were sorry to have Ura Troyer and Firman Kaufmann drop out of
the class at the end of the first semester.
At the beginning of our second year, our membership was reduced to
fifteen, when Paul Kaufmann and Ohlen Troyer failed to return, and
Glendora Hacker and Marion Mast transferred to Sugar Creek.
Again we went through the ordeal of our annual election. This year's
officers were: Russell Miller, Presidentg William Lengacher, Vice President:
and Norma Zook, Secretary.
' As the previous year, we had enntestants in the local Peace Contest
and in the local and county sports events.
Doyle Shrock was forced to leave school on account of illness.
Our third year elections resulted as follows: Darold Miller, President:
Oneta Hershberger, Vice President: William Lengacher, Secrctaryy

Dorothy Shrock, Onetn Hershberger, and Oma Hershberger again entered
the Peace contest. Onete rated first in both the local and county contest.
Because of weather conditions and several other problems, she was unable to

I saw signs concerning the state fair in Columbus, Having a weakness
for entertainment, I went to the fair. Coming to one of the tents, I heard
them announcing winners of a contest. The first prize winner was William
Lengacher. That name sounded familiar. As the winner went up to get the
award, he looked just like the same UBillH, that I used to know as a class-
mate. After having congratulated him for making the finest cheese in the
state, I thought I'd go back to the red school house to bring back pleasant

I began to look for that familiar school building, but I could not find it.
I visited one of the schools. As I knocked at the door of the room, the
teacher opened the door. I tried to identify her. Oh yes, it's Oma Hersh-

I informed her that I had now seen all of my classmates.

OUR LAST TRIBUTE TO OUR SCHOOL
Hal, friends and neighbors, far and near,
We've all our tasks completed.
And now we'll lay our burdens here-
We've from them graduated.
We've studied hard for four long years,
And met with tasks and problems.
And now we're set for all the cheers,
That accompany the emblems.
Our teachers helped us to our goal,
To which we have succeeded:
Our parents too have played their role,
And helped us where was needed.
The time has come to bid adieu
To teachers, friends, and schoolmates,
And step into a world anew,
Out through the threshold gates.
USo hail to ye high school,
Crimson and the gray,
We pledge to thee,
Our faith each day.N

OUR FUTURE LIES BEFORE US
The number of pupils in our elassualas it may be trite,
But we will show that when we go, boy, we'll be dynamite.
The years ahead of us are long, and some they might be blue,
But we will sjow in prose and verse what we propose to do.
First of all thereis Imogene. We will put her in the lead-
Wait, not so fast, we can't catch her-look at her gallant steed.
For she is teaching riding now at Hurst's academy.
She rides them high, she rides them low, she rides unflinchingly.
If you should see her at her work among the handsome men,
You'd see that life agrees with her and with her suitors ten,
Next comes our Junior Romeo, the sheik of all our clan,
Dick Hamsher's getting southern now-he'e down in Alabam.
He socks the ball across the field: he always hits his mark,
The Glevelond Indians shout with glee, nDick will be our spnrk.U
The only trouble with his job, that we will notice here,
Is that he's had to leave behind the one he holds most deer.

Shefs women's bowling champion now, Ona Troycr is her name,
For she began her famous career, many years ago,
And she has shown that practice firm, can help your game just so.

Ne, the supposedly ngreen Freshmonn, get off to a good start in our
attempt to prove that we are not so ugreenn as everyone thought.
We won the high sehool class basket bell tournament by first defeat-

We think that that in itself proves we are not what could very easily
be termed as Ugreenu. We think we're quite good, and not only in
basketball! We furnished two managers, e cheerleader, five members

ing held to determine the outstanding pupils in the following events:

Humorous Readings -- Joy Brand

and one third place.
Imogene placed first in orntory, Joy second in humorous reading,

The school and the community should be proud, not only of the

instead of being forced into the various activities, the pupils wish

of girls would leave the study hall. The six girls in the Home Ee,
were very inquisitive. Finally a committee of girls stepped up to
the six outcasts, handed them slips of paper and retired hastily to

They glanced at their slips-a party! Hooray! But wait, There
was a catch as usual. They were all to come dressed in very unsophisti-

With the opening of the basketball season, only one veteran re- W

The team did not have as good rating as the year before, but everyone

tournament. The complete scores and schedule are as follows:

Last year a league was organized among the schools of Holmes
county. The teams winning the most games was the champion of the
league. If this champion won again in the spring, it could particie
pate in the tournament at Bridgeport, The winner last fall was Walnut
Creek. This year there is no schedule for games since transportation
is almost impossible for most schools, and probably no games will be
MY FIRST TIME AT BAT
It was a cool day in April when Walnut Creek played Clark, Clark
was up first, but they didn't get any runs. H, Gerber was up to bat
first, then four other players followed.
Then came Mwm-M-, It was my first time at bat against another
pitcher, I stepped up to the plateg I felt my knees shaking, Then
the pitcher threw the ball. It was a ball QluckilyD-outside-and low.
The pitcher threw again - it was a fast ball that came right above the
knees. I swung, I thought I hit the ball, but when I looked, the
catcher had the ball, QTOO bad.D That made the count one and oneg
Again the pitcher threw. It was a nice slow one, and I swung as hard
as I could,n Just then something cracked. I had actually hit the belle
it was right over the short stop. I ran to first as fast as my legs
could carry me. I did finally get there. - f
It was a real thrill because it was the first hit I had ever made

t GRADE BASKETBALL
At the beginning of the year 1941, the prospects of a good grade
basketball team were rather poor, due to the many members of the 1940-41
squad graduating. After about four weeks of practice, the following were
outstanding candidates for the team! Loren Hershberger, Robert Gerber,
Donald Schrock, Clyde Sundheimer, James Allen Miller, Dwight Weaver and
Doran Horrisberger. Others who were on the reserve squad werezl Eugene
Miller, Gerald Hershberger, Richard Hostetler, Lyle Hostetler, Sterling
Troyer, Lowell Zook, Lorrel Mast, and Robert Troyer.
However with the new material getting into condition, a successful
season was enjoyed by the team. They played 22 games, winning 16 and
losing 6, as followsiv

At the close of the regular season, Walnut Greek, Berlin and Holmes-
ville were tied for the league leadership. This necessitated a playhoff
during the high school tournament at Millersburg, Walnut Creek drew
Holmesville for its first opponent and out-played and out-scored its tall
opponents to the tun of 21-15. Scores were rather evenly divided in this
game with Loren getting 7, Bob 4, Dwight 5, James 4 and Donald 1.
The thrilling game was the final with Berlin, which started as if
Walnut Creek would be in for a bad evening.
Berlin was ahead the entire evening with the exception of a part of
the last minute, the quarters ending 2-O, 1143, 19-12 and 26-27. The
features of the game were the remarkable shooting of Robert Gerber during
i' 10111112 Awww xl
the last half, collecting 1-1 points, and the last minute shot of Lorenfs
which won the game. We have a nice trophy to show for the victory.
Most of the regulars will graduate, so next year's team will see some V

Some where I reed s definition of Spirit. It goes like this:
USpiritH,is that quality of an individuel that enables him to suffer
untold hardships to protect those ideals which he holds more dear
than life itself." ,
D In the Walnut Greek Schools there exists such a spirit.
The Walnut Creek Spirit embodies: self-sacrifice, e will to
win, hard work, patience, honesty, intelligence and respect for one
thority. These qualities united for n common cause results in the
some of human conducts
This Spirit is our precious heritage, It does not belong to us
alone, but to the boys and girls who have gone from our school into
the ranks of life. It is loaned to us, to nurture and to cherish,
to pass along undiminished so that each succeeding class may profit
by its cumulative force,
In this fashion, the traditions of the institution will go on
in continued procession, showing the way to success and maintaining
the standards of our school,
To maintain these high standards end insure the continuation
of the Walnut Creek Spirit, it is necessary for every pupil in the
school to give without reserve to all school functions: to work to
his capacity nt all times: to sacrifice for the common good, V
Your obligation to the school does not end with graduation.
Your actions, your deeds, in or out of school reflect the teachings
ond ideals of our school,
Any honor or dishonor that may come your way strengthens or
weakens our school spirit. Dnly we can destroy it,
We are blessed with this fine spirit. Few schools possess
such a spirit, May this spirit continue ns long ns Walnut Creek
Schools continue to be.

I THE WALNUT CREEK SCHCOL SPIRIT
If it were possible to obtain the results of all the County
contests in which Walnut Creek High School had participatedg if it
were possible to equate scholastic, athletic, and forensic victor-
iesg if then, by some mathematical formula we were able to arrive
at an "all county rating" , I em sure Walnut Oreck High School would
have one of the highest ratings in the County,
Suppose we attempt to analyze the various factors that give
our school this apparent superiority. ,
It is due to an extra large enrollment? Hardly. We are one
of the smallest schools in Holmes County. Superior cultural becky
ground? Perhaps not. Better equipped school? Ho,
Thus, one by one, the individual factors are discarded until
we arrive at the inevitable fact, that there exists in the Walnut
Creek School that illusive, indcfinahlo something which I like to
coll the Walnut Creek School Spirit.
