Jaiet. mi Obituaries from the area ; x t : : ' war . - - By BERN ARD J. SCHI CK We come to praise our teachers. Not to bury them. Many are gone but none as long as they live in our memories. We have a special affection for teachers. Mostly because we had so many wonderful ones. To preserve (or posterity and to refresh your memory we'll list the teachers in our schools just 30 years ago. That was during Elwood's centennial year. , Keith Scott was superintendent and M.A. Copeland was principal. Teachers at Wendell L. Willkie (Elwood High School) were: Mary Allen, Mary M. Barnes, Harry M. Bridges, Frank Bykowski, Kenneth L. Callahan, Viviennne F. Carter. Kenneth D. Coulsoo, Palmer J. Davis, Blanche Diegel and Earl Forney. Also, William Freed, Luella G. Holtsclaw. Betty House, Harry L. House, Esther Koons, Donald M. Crampe, Mary Logan Records, Gilbert R. Shuck, George Smith. William Blair Sullivan, John W. Ward. Wilson Wheatley. Barbara Yundt. Not to slight anyone, special teachers were Robert Kellems, Claude Jacobs and Anita Waymire. Lillian Mikels was financial secretary and Phyllis Sosbe was secretary to Mr. Scott. Lillian Sullivan was the school nurse and Claude Commons was the visiting teacher. We'll even include the custodians who were Jesse Warner, Royal Harrison and Clyde Winn. Naturally we want to get the names of the school board at that time. Some people might ask why? They were Mark Noble, Melvin Robinson and E. Ralph Stevens. (Only klddm', guys.) In an earlier article we missed some teachers. Not this time. At Junior High in 1951-52 still teaching were: James E. Allen, principal, Walter Allen, Roxie Brumfield, Paul V. Champion, Robert Durr, Esta Filbey, Mattie Griffin, E. Samuel House, Joan McCammonandlloe McKinney. Also in this list were Phyllis Morris, G . Sidney Parks, Hazel Poer, Martha Dever, Ruth Greene, Edna Jackson, Cara Doreen Jones, Katherine Jordan and Dean Malicote. Still others were Lillian Ogle, Thursa Reed, Margaret Snyder, Thomas A. Strah, John Tipton and Oscar Newland. Jane Collins was the clerk. William Heath was the custodian. Firemen for the building were Elliot McPhearsonandOrville Schimmel. Now we don't want to forget our grade schools. We'll start out with Osborn: Virgil Peebles was the principal; other teachers were Viola Adams, Mildred Morris, Augusta Wacknitz, Eve Ward, Mary M. Weaver. Thecustodian was William Lynas. At Linwood in the 1951- 52 years were: Ellis Horton, principal, Helen Benedict, Pearl Jackson, Marie Leisure, Thelma M ills, Leona Phegley, Fred Van Ness, Forest Woods. The custodian was Ora Lambert. At Washington grade school at that time was Adah Evans, the-principal. The teachers were Nina Garwood, Mary Hennegan, Agnes Nowlan, Dorothy Ray, Iretta Wimer and William Eherenman. The custodian was Chester Allen. And, of course, we have Edgewood. Carl Renner was the principal. Teachers were Martin Beavers, Josephine House, Dolores Parks, Mary Wershing, Jackqueline Smith. The custodian was William McGuire. At the South Elwood school Jennie Russell was principal. Teachers were Leone Baden, Ruby Dietzer, Olin R. Yount. The custodian was John Singer. At Red Corner-school Ruth Curtis was principal 30 years ago. Teachers-were Ruby Antrim and Lucie Etchison. The custodian was Richard Jordaa. .---. Included in the Pipe Creek Township schools is the biggest one at Frankton. Here at that time Robert E. Lee was the principal. K.R. Conkling was the assistant principal. Marguerite M iller was the clerk. The teachers were Emma Alspaugh, Mulford Davis, Carlotte Floyd, Linda Fox, Opal Hughes, James Hunter, Claralu Keever, Gordon Kirkhoff, Mildred Kimmerling.T. J. Marvel. The custodians were Robert Brown and Jack Cole. Marietta Parr, Almeda Rawlings, Erlynne Saathoff. Doris Shawhan. Gerald Smeenge, Meredith Twlford and Losha Wright. These names should being back memories to many of you readers. Some are now deceased. Others have gone on to other fields. Many have moved up in the field of education. . But to any of you who studied under their guidance, say a little prayer for their effort. Most teachers get little more than that for their dedication to their profession.
