Though years may come between the time
Of leaving Central High,
We'l1 always have the memories
That shall never pass us by.
From the seventh to twelfth, I'm sure,
Each year in itself we'l1 recall,
And all the things We shall endure
That meant so much to us all.
Now that We're the senior class,
The school has only to remember
For we won't come back, if we pass,
Come the next month of September.
From the day of graduation
We'll go each in our chosen held,
Into the big, wide world alone
To seek, to Find, to yield.
Though now we be the seniors
And lead the way for the rest,
Soon we'll be the beginners
With the way of life to test.
Where'er we are in the world,
Whate'er we choose to be,
New paths for us will be unfurled
New ways We shall foresee.
Although the days go on and on
Since from this school we part,
The memories never will be goneg
But kept deep in our heart.

The first requirement is scholarship. Students must
have a B average or better for the four years of high
school. The Seniors who do have a B average are
eligible to take the Senior Scholarship Test. Any Senior
not taking this test is not a candidate for the Society.
Ballots are given to the teachers to vote on those
students only whom they know. The candidates are
graded A, B, C, or D on qualities of character, service.
and leadership, in the community -as well as in the
school. Those who attain the highest averages in these
qualities are elected to membership.

"Love Your Neighbor," a fast-moving farce-comedy in three acts, was presented by the Senior Class, Friday,
The action of this play took place in the living room of the Emil Vashki home on the edge of an
imaginary town in Iowa. The time was the present.
The cast, one of the largest Central has ever had, consisted of eight boys and twelve girls, was coached
by Mr. Sultzbach, assisted by Mrs. Campbell.
Haydn Gershwin, and Sousa were only a few of the composers whose musical selections were played by the Xenia Central
Orchestra and Band to suit a variety of musical tastes. The band played for all of the home football and basketball games.
Lelawala an operetta, accompanied by a small orchestra, was given in November. In early December the instrumental
students with the help of many other Central students, began rehearsals on the "Minstrel."
Following the "Minstrel," the orchestra and band gave their annual concert, and displayed for the first time navy blue and
white uniforms which were financed in part by paper drives manned by instrumental students. Swing music for several
school dances and hangouts was provided by the "Centralites."
Many of the students entered the contests which were held in Springfield and Columbus. The school year ended with the
orchestra playing for class plays and graduation, and the band playing for Memorial Day services.

One of the projects of the Vocal Music Department was the operetta,
"Lelawala," by Charles Wakefield Cadman, which was given before three large
audiences on November 15th and 16th. This was one of fthe best attended
operettas ever given and was the first one to be given in the field house.
"Lelawala,' is the story of a beautiful Indian girl of the tribe of the Oniah-
garahs, who volunteered to be a sacrifice to the Great Spirit. She was savied
from her fate, when the Chief of the Delawares, who threatened the Oniahgarahs
with war, was killed in battle, thus pleasing the Great Spirit and sparing Lelawala.
The story ended happily with the return of Sawanas, the lover of Lelawala,
and the weddfng of the two.
One hundred and fourteen persons had some part in this project and their
cooperation helped to make this production a grand success.

Central Nlinstrels ol 'IQ46
The minstrel show was presented by a large cast of Central students under
the direction of Mr. Zaner Zerkle. The curtain opened to the strains of George
Gershwin's brilliant "Rhapsody In Blue." The black-face chorus and the pony
chorus were introduced by two other Gershwin tunes. Many well presented acts
followed, Music was furnished by a capable thirty-piece orchestra. Humor came
with the antics of eight end men and two interlocutors,
Included in the program were various vocal solos, instrumental solos,
ensembles, tumblers, and dancers. The colorful performance came to .an end
with the theme of "Victory," and Sousa's stirring march, "Stars and Stripes
Forever." The program was concluded with "The Star Spangled Banner."
Xenia Central High School's vocal music department led the western
Ohio vocal auditions at Wittenberg College, Springlield, Ohio, Saturday,

The junior Class Play, "Seven Sisters," offered something
slightly different in the way of entertainment. It was a
Hungarian costume play based on the tradition that the older
daughters must be married before the younger ones may be-
come engaged. A widow with seven daughters and little
money is faced with the almost impossible task of marrying off
her many girls. When her fourth -eldest daughter, Mitzi, is
expelled from a convent, thus disgracing her family, her job
becomes even greater.
The cause was not lost, however, for Ferenz Horkay
became so infatuated with Mitzi that he undertook the task
of trapping three eligible men into marrying the three
Gyurkavics girls, thus making it possible for Mitzi, fourth in
line, to marry him.
The play, which was given March 29, 1946, was directed
by Mrs. Kathryn Jones.

An elimination test, taken by 193 students, in many
subjects was given to Xenia Central students, April 9, 1946.
The three students ranking highest in each subject were per-
mitted to go to Wittenberg College to take the tests in com-
petition with students from other schools.
The results of this test gave ranking in both district and
state in the various subjects. The following is a list of the

Junior Hi Night
Central Junior High celebrated its thirteenth annual "junior
Hi Nite," Friday evening, February 22nd. The occasion was
particularly timely this year since Centralls junior team came
through the season without a defeat. Needless to say, Coach
H. G. Patterson was very proud as he watched the boys defeat the
rangy Dorothy Lane team from Fairmont in the season's Finale at
the Fieldhouse by a score of 33-20.
The preliminary game between the two traditional city
rivals, Spring Hill and McKinley, was won by a fast breaking
McKinley team by a score of 35-13. The team was coached by
Warren "Tommy" Thomas. Dale Murrell, center on the junior
high varsity, won the Robert Moore foul-shooting trophy. Dale
made good eight shots out of ten attempts. The trophy, symbolic
of the grade championship, was presented to McKinley School
between halves by Supt. R. J. Warner.. Music was furnished by
the Junior band under the direction of Mr. Zerkle.
The Central Junior Hi pupils, along with the visiting Fair-
mont team iand boosters, enjoyed 'a party at the Hangout follow-
ing the game.

This season, contrary to the score column, was not a complete failure for the Bucs. Although Xenia lost seven games and
won only two, the season was called a success by many football fans because of the team's lighting spirit and its ability to hold
supposedly stronger teams to a few points. The Bucs finished sixth in M. V. L.
Letters are awarded on a basis of quarters played. The player must appear in at least half of all the quarters. At a special
assembly, letters were presented to: Stogie Bath, captain, Don Martin, Jim Jeffryes, Don Haley, Dutch Villars, Bernie Schwei-
bold, Johnny Willet, Harold Mickle, Marvin Beam, Kenny Muterspaw, and Tom Bottoroff, co-captains for next year, Bob Down-
ing, Granville Wills, Bill Henderson, Kenny Foley, Charles Deen, Dwight McMahan, and Jim Malavazos, manager.

The basketball team this year, although finishing last in the Miami Valley League, made a very creditable showing through
out the season. As the season progressed, the team continued to improve, and many games were lost by only one or two points
The members of the team established for themselves a reputation for cooperation, sportsmanship, and team spirit. Then
career in the tournament was halted in their first game by Middletown, who eventually became State Champs.

Girls, physical Education
During the class year, the girls participated in m-any activities including
volleyball, newcomb, basketba-ll, soccer, gymnastics, social dancing, tap dancing,
square dancing, basket speedball, softball, and many others. Physical Education
Night grew out of class activities. The students presented the activities which
they learned in class.
The girls also learned to time, score, and ofhciate their own games. Several
girls then officiated at the intramural games which were held after school.
Eighteen outstanding players in intramural basketball were placed on two teams
for the Army-Navy game. The winners of this game played a team of women
teachers. The Niavy won!

Boys' Physical Education
Central is proud of her tumbling team this year. Under the able instruction
of Mr. Bateson, these boys have developed into ia well-trained and co-ordiinated
group. Several programs have been given by them before the public and we hope
that future teams are as good as this one.
One of the outstanding activities of the year at Central is the Intramural
League. This year fifteen teams were organized and games were played weekly.
Regular seasonal play was held besides the Final tournament from which the
North End Indians emerged victorious.
This year's track team, under the direction of Coach Bob Mclntire, shows more promise than usual.
The team is rnade up almost completely of underclassmen with only three members being seniors.
Up to the time of writing this, the team had participated in two meets. The first, on April 26, was lost to
Osborn by a score of 8316 to 33Vg. In the second on April 30, Central defeated previously unbeaten
Wilmington, 6116 to 56W.

"See you at the Hangout tomorrow night!" That hasbeen a familiar cry in the
halls of Central, Friday afternoons after schools. The fact that an average of 250
memberships were sold each quarter shows how full the meaning was to this state-
This year the Hangout has been run on a new system. The Student Council
has been in general charge of the Saturday night get-togethers, and made provision
for the club to have a different sponsor each week. Various clubs and activity
groups were given their choice of dates for sponsorship. From the group member-
ship, committees were picked to set up equipment, sell tickets, sell refreshments,
plan entertainment, and clean up.
Ping-pong tables, cards, checkers, and a snack bar were at the disposal of the
members. Often the group in charge planned special features such as: circle dances,
Bfology Club Cheer Leaders F. H. A,
B-ooster's Club F. F. A. G. A. A.
cake walks, grand marches, and match-name dances. Door prizes were often awarded
An orchestra was the main attraction at least once a month.
There are always big things in store at the Hangout. And at the latest meeting
of the Student Council, it was decided that the Hangout will continue to function
through June and July of this summer.
Not everyone knows that the Kiwanis Club is greatly interested in our Hangout,
so interested that they have appointed a committee of four "guardian angels" to
watch over us and help us with any difficulties that may arise. These "angels" are:
Mr. Thomas, Mr. Francis, Mr. Benner, and Mr. Bateson, and they are constantly
working on new plans and ideas for us.
The following groups have sponsored the Hangout this year:

History ol the Senior Class
It seemed funny to be seniors. Always before, the last year in high school
was very distant and in the future, but now it has come and gone. As we look
back we vaguely remember being freshmen, when we sent representatives to
the Student Government, got used to high school, and looked up to the dignified
In our sophomore year we organized under the direction of Mrs. Stanchu
and Mr. Harlan. Dick Bath was elected president with Jim Jeffries, Don Morgan,
and Joanne Worley as vice president, treasurer and secretary, respectively. We
held our meetings in Room 315 W. Instead of publishing the "Little Buc," we
put out 'the "Sophomore Newsletter," which was sent to our boys and girls in the
service. This project was under the supervision of Miss Ballantyne. We were
the first Sophomore Class to put on a class play, which was in one tact and was
entitled, "They Put on a Play" with Pat Frederick, Margaret I-llenize, Nancy
Leslie, Janet Smith, Frances Snider, Dan Anderson, Don Morgan, Dave Purdom
and Paul Vvhetstone.
As Juniors we elected Richard Riggs, president, Burton Ferguson, vice presi-
dentg Betty Bryson, secretary and Nancy Leslie, treasurer. Under the guidance
of Miss Porter and Miss Clark we held our meetings in Room 203. We sold
food at the games and held several dances to help build up the treasury. Our
class play, "Lunatics at Large," was directed by Mrs. Jones and presented in the
cast: Mary Lou Armentrout, Bea Ervin, Patsy Manley, Betty Ann Prugh, Nancy
Leslie, Janet Smith, Martha Ledbetter, Walter Buflington, Burton Ferguson, Paul
Hibbert, John Mallow, Don Morgan, Dave Purdom and Paul Whetstone. Our
class rings came just in time for the Prom. We had another first, in that we
were the first class to hold an open dance. This, of course, was due to the War
situation. However, the banquet was restricted to Central students.
Seniors! Bernie Schweibold was elected president, Betty Bryson, vice presi-
dent, Nancy Leslie, secretary and Evelyn Smalley, treasurer. Our class meetings
were held in Room 309 with Mrs. Nybladh and Mr. Neff as able advisers. As
Seniors we were privileged to give the first dance of 1945. This year the Student
Council was organized as a form of self-government. Its membership is made up
of representatives from the various clubs and classes. We ordered our invitations
and name cards and voted to graduate in caps and gowns. Our class play, a
three act farce comedy, "Love Your Neighbor," was presented May 10. To
climax the year, a lovely time was had by all as guests of the Juniors at a Party-
Prom with music by Les Shepard.
We've had a grand time at Central!
