Floats, nets ... you name it ...

Donna Fritz, disguised as a football player, gave us inspiration on our senior Homecoming parade float. We played the "Eagles."


Varsity assistant coach Charles Sprague, one of our class sponsors and all-around great typing teacher, chopped off a bit of net after the Hounds roared home with the 1964 sectional championship. Charlie stopped partway through the process to call time.

Our class sponsors:

Charles Sprague
Nancy Hamilton
Dillard McKinney
George Kovich

The Council ...

The senior class was well represented on the Student Council, a robust body that abolished ignorance, enhanced humor and ratified educational opportunity. Otherwise, they helped plan sock hops. Our members were, front, from left: Doug Siebert, Diane Charles, Donna Fritz, Karen Sintz, Scott Cunningham. Back, from left: Terry Meyer, Chuck Robinson, Mike Jonas, Steve Clark.


Publications ...

John Updike and Dennis Fritz were student editors of the B. High Spirit. Robert Bunz was our faculty adviser.

Becky White and Olivene Cox
were senior editors of the Brooklet.

Who we were ...

Karen and Steve were chosen by their classmates as natural born leaders. The dog did not have a vote.

Bonnie Meyer and Rick Metzler were our best dancers. Those of us who failed at dancing blamed it on being sober. Others just said the beat wasn't right.

In what was regarded as the most controversial decision of the year, Kenny Cox and Kathy Kersey were the tallest and shortest in the class. That's Ken on the right. Opponents of the vote cited illegal metric scale deviations.

... is who we are ...

Karen Sintz and Chuck Robinson were considered the most popular in the class. The vote was taken an hour after school had dismissed for the day, when Chuck and Karen were asked to stay behind and "count papers."

Chuck and Becky were decidedly the best-looking in the Class of '64. It was difficult to argue with this decision. Becky was also Homecoming queen. Chuck is from Blooming Grove.

Diane Charles and Allen McCool were our most athletic classmates. Allen was also sometimes called "AC." Diane was probably never called "DC," but those little nuances in life often just escape us.

Donna McWhorter and Doug Siebert were considered the wittiest. Frankly, playing with a fire extinguisher is risky business. the Whoopee Cushion on Pop Servies' chair would have been interesting. Next time around, try that. Or a dog whistle in English class. Ever try one of those spring-loaded snakes you put in somebody's desk drawer? Coach Codiano would have enjoyed that.
