In 1940, after years of studying, but with plenty of fun mixed in, thirtyfsix of
us entered the freshman class to begin four years of high school work.
After we had become acquainted with our teachers and our new room, we chose
our class officers as follows: Dean Mumaw, president, Kenneth Bricker, vice president,
Roberta Rugh, secretary and treasurer, Dean Blough and Evelyn West, student council
members. Miss Koontz was to take up the task of being our adviser this year. To start
the year out right, our class had an outdoor party at Wooster Park. We certainly
enjoyed ourselves on the swings and playing different games. It seemed that we had
no sooner started to school than it came to an end. Looking forward to seeing each
other next school term, we bade each other goodbye for the summer.

The next term found us with only thirty members of our class. Clarence Bricker,
Lawrence Fetzer, Bertha Gifford, Wayne Gingery, Betty Hathaway, Ivan Mosier,
Raymond Mullet and Loretta Talbot had left school or moved to other towns. This
year we had the great privilege of occupying those front seats in study hall. Our
class officers were: Kenneth Bricker, president, Dean Mumaw, vice president, Ro'
berta Rugh, secretary, Betty Plants, treasurer, Dean Blough and Majora Kaufman, stu'
dent council members. We chose Mrs. McFadden fwho was a new teacher from Ken-
tuckyj as our adviser.
One of the memories of this year was a hayride. Clarence Bricker furnished the
tractor and drove us all over town.
In November, just to be different from previous classes, we decided to get
our class sweaters. The sweaters were green with a big white "45" that made each
of us quite conspicuous.
We girls had a wonderful time in our Home Ec. class talking about everything
but vitamins and clothing.
We were happy to receive Elizabeth Beyeler Qfrom Daltonj as a new member,
although several others withdrew. Wallace Mensching, Charlotte Pate, Mildred
Steele, Mary Fralich, Jennie Franks, Alvin Hamilton, Donald Blough, Mary Jane
Pinkley, Grace Easterday and Ray Uhler. Two girls were chosen from our class for
cheerleaders-Evelyn West and Virginia Boyes. Several of our boys participated in

When we again enrolled in school, we were juniors and very proud of that fact.
Our class, however, had dwindled down to twentyffour pupils. Our class officers
were elected as follows: Dean Blough, president, Roberta Rugh, secretary, Betty
Plants, treasurer, Phyllis Means and Dean Mumaw, student council members. Mr.
Martin fschool coachj was selected as our able adviser.
This year proved exciting to us as we were gradually approaching our destina'
tion. We won championship in basketball-thanks to our grand coach and were
proud to have Virginia Boyes and Evelyn West as cheerleaders again this year. We
received our class rings.
We gave the seniors a banquet at the Smithville Inn. We wore our formals and
best suits for this special occasion. We had a lovely evening with plenty to eat and
a splendid entertainment by the Mack family.
In April we gave our class play, "Adams Evening" under the direction of
Miss McIlvaine. With lots of work to do and parties to attend, the year passed quickly.

just think! Now we have become seniors and can occupy those coveted seats
of the study hall. This year will mean so much to us even with all its hard work.

TIME MARCHES ON
Time and the Graduating Class of 1945 march on side by side.
A wink from any man or woman would redden these bashful tots' faces. Now the
Seniors have inherited the privilege to wink. So to the people of the outside world,
we graduate with this advise to you.
