ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO

Ohio was admitted into the Union as the
seventeenth state. It was the first state
carved out of the old Northwest Territory.
Chillicothe was chosen as the first capitol,
the capitol building being made of freestone
from the neighboring hills. Chillicothe was
the capitol until 1808, when, because of the
legislature's desire for a more centralized
location, Zanesville was temporarily chosen.
In the year 1817 a permanent location was

established in what is now the city of Co-
lumbus, where the present capitol was com-
pleted in 1861.

Although, now, it is wholly inadequate to
present day needs, it stands as a monument
to those who had the foresight to see to it
that Ohio would become a leader of states.
Therefore, the class of 1953 has chosen, as
the theme for the 1953 Flame, the "Ohio
Sesquicentennial."

The three R's - 'Readin' 'Ritin', and 'Rithmetic . . . were developed for American
school children by Ohioans.

William Holmes McGuffey's reader: Platt Rogers Spencer's Spencerian Pen-
manship: and Joseph Ray's Artihmetic . . .

These early Ohio educators would truly be
proud of the progress that has been made in
Big Walnut School District in the providing
of the best books and facilities and in fact
that the people in the district are interested
enough in education to provide the beauti-
ful new school building located on the banks
of the Big Walnut.

of the United States.

baked goods and candy were sold. Other money-making ac-
tivities included scrap drives and a bake sale. On April 30. the
class play, "Annie Get Your Gun," directed by Mrs. Peregrine,
was successfully staged in the Big Walnut High School Gym.

The Junior Class and their advisor, Mrs. Lucille Peregrine, had a very interesting year. The
class play, "Cheaper by the Dozen," directed by Mrs. Babbert, was a huge success. The Junior-
Senior Prom was one of the most attractive affairs that was ever given. The auditorium was
beautifully decorated in keeping with the Holland theme. Scrap drives, bake sales, subscriptions
for Reader's Digest, were some of the activities the Juniors conducted in order to make money
for their class.

The class is deeply grieved in the passing of Robert Robbins, a member of the class.

SPANISH CLASSES

The Spanish classes under the supervision of their teacher, Mrs. Peregrine, have had a
pleasant year. They enjoyed a Spanish breakfast, a Christmas party with Principal Souders,
Superintendent Miller and the secretary, Mrs. Miller, as guests of honor. They enjoyed the Spanish
custom of breaking the Pinata bag where each received a gift. They then attended the fine
performance of Jose Greco, the widely known Spanish dancer at the Hartman Theater.

Y-TEENS

The Y-Teens, consisting of 59 members, have, under the leadership of Mrs. Bernard Searles,
experienced a very busy and successful year.

One of the biggest undertakings of the Y-Teens for 1952-53 was the annual Homecoming.
We had the program at the field along with the selling of shakers, programs, and mums. After
the game, the Y-Teens sponsored the dance at the Sunbury Elementary School.

Some of our other important events were: Get Acquainted Party, Hobo Hike with the F.H.A.,
Recognition Service, Football Party, two joint meetings with the Y.W.C.A., the sale of plastic
towels, bake sale, school chapel, Mother-Daughter Banquet, Easter Egg Roll, and Senior Break-
fast.

Along with all of our good times and money making projects we have sent contributions
to the Heart Fund and the World Fellowship Fund. At Christmas time the girls at the Girls'
Industrial School were very happy with the gifts sent to them by the Big Walnut Y-Teens.

Y-Teen Week was February 14th through the 20th.

F.F.A.

The Big Walnut Chapter of Future Farmers of America is a chartered local unit of the Ohio
association of Future Farmers of America.

Some of the activities in which the chapter participated were a scrap drive, pest hunt, high-
way safety campaign, conservation practices on the school farm, parliamentary procedure
demonstrations, radio programs, and national and state conventions.

The Chapter was awarded a silver award in the district parliamentary procedure contest
and a gold award in the district public speaking contest. Last summer five boys attended F. F. A.
camp and two won scholarships to the National Institute of Co-operation in Lansing, Michigan.

The big social event of the year was the annual parent-son banquet held in the high school
building on March 26.

Ohio was also settled by the wives of these farmers who found it very dif-
ficult to make a home in the wilderness with absolutely no conveniences.

FUTURE HOMEMAKERS OF AMERICA

The Big Walnut Future Homemakers of America have carried through their theme for the
year, "Homemaking training today brings happier homes tomorrow." Encouraged by our ad-
viser, Mrs. Jo Ann Smart and our President, Herma Richardson, we completed a successful year.

Among the highlights for the year were, the Hobo Convention, a Bake Sale, a booth at the
Delaware county fair for which we received the grade of A, a Halloween Party, F ormal Initia-
tion for the new members, and a Panel Discussion with the F. F. A. We also enjoyed a skating
party, and the presentation of a program for the Little Walnut Grange.

But no year would be completed without the April activity, the All Sports Dance, which
honored our Queen and King, and in May our Mother-Daughter Banquet which brought the
year to a memorable close.

SENIOR CHOIR

The vocal music department has had a busy and exciting program this
year. The various choruses have sung at several school assemblies during the
year as well as many public appearances. The main event was the Annual
Spring Concert held on May 3 in which all the choruses participated and was
under the direction of Mrs. Jane McFarland. Baccalaureate and Commencement
programs marked the end of the activities of the vocal music department for
the year.

The music of Ohio ox-
cart days was home-
made, just as the wagons
aad tools and clothing
were. There were fiddlers
for Saturday night dances,
ballad-singers with their
guitars, preachers "lining
out" the hymns on Sun-
day. There was no public,
no professional music.

SPORTS

Our forefathers had the sulky races, horse shoe pitching, hunting and fishing as their enter-
tainment, the plowing of fields, digging in mines, and working in the furnaces gave them the
required exercises, but today our boys and girls work out on the football field, the basketball
court, the baseball diamond, and on the track.

Ohio was pioneered by the men and women of the original
thirteen American colonies. Here they united in a common effort
and a common purpose.

Moreover, Ohio's agricultural and industrial development
was hastened by the people of many lands. Ohio was the hope
of the burdened and the oppressed, who came seeking peace and
security, and asking only the opportunity to work for them. Here
in Ohio occurred a blending of many tongues and racial customs
and ideals. Each group had made its important contribution.

The state of Ohio today is a testimonial to the combined
efforts of the far-sighted and the enterprising.
