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. -Phyllis M urrell.

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. Forty Five Senior Band 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.

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. Forty Eight .1--rn--Q. - Q V -- , 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, Forty Nine 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, Apri-l 6, 1946, by receiving First, or superior, ratings for its a capella choir, composed of fifty-tive voicesg a mixed ensemble of four voices, and six soloists. Soloists who received superior ratings were Donald Morgan and Douglas Adair, baritones, Tom Thomas, bass, Miss Janice Fudge, soprano, Miss Mary Michael, mezzo soprano, and Tom Reynolds, tenor. These students participated in the state finals at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, May 11. Other ratings received by Xenia vocalists were as follows: boys' Vocal Music Kerns, soprano, and Walter Buflington, jr., good. Judges for the auditions were W. Oscar Jones, Findlayg joseph A. Leeder, Ohio State University, and Norman Park, supervisor of music in the Dayton schools. The local students are from the classes of Carl Duckwall, supervisor of vocal music in the Xenia schools. On April 5, the vocal music department presented a concert with the instrumental music organizations. A girls' glee club of ninety voices, composed of all high school singing classes, sang three songs.

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. CHARACTERS Mrs. Gyurkavics Kathrinka ............ Sari ......... .. Ella ........ Mitzi ...... Terko ..,.

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.

Fifty Four 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. Fifty Five Football First Row-E. Moore, J. Jeffryes, K.

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.

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! Q ..., , ,ew wb. .,,...-,.-.i..m.-Wm...- e ,Mfrs :......p5g5-V-1-we I -3 A.

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. INTRAMURAL LEAGUE 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. Sixty Track TRACK TEAM MEMBERS Q Paul Smith ............................,...,,....

The fact that an average of 250 memberships were sold each quarter shows how full the meaning was to this state- ment 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: Hi-Y Junior Cen-X Senior Cen-X Instrumental Music Library Club Vocal Music 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 seniors. 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! Sixty Two Sept. Sept. Sept. Sept.
