Mr Everett Abbey,
We dedicate this book to the Fiftieth Anniversory of Euclid
Central High School. On May 28, 1897, the first graduating class
received their diplomas at the hand of Mr. Everett Abbey,
who v«/as the first superintendent. The members of the senior
class were Olive Callahan, Will Houck, Ella Houck, Libby Pelton,
Addison Verbsky, and Loyda Verbsky.
We also dedicate this book to the city of Euclid, which is
celebrating its Sesqui-centennial this year. The township of
Euclid was officially settled in 1797 by eleven families. In one-
hundred-fifty years Euclid has grown from a small settlement of
eleven families to a population of 38.000. It has ten churches,
eight schools, fifty-six types of factories and is still rapidly
Music is the key that opens the pages of this
lyric number of the Opus. It is our desire to
record within its pages many things that will
recall fond memories of the days when your
voices played their part in the year-long hymn
to knowledge through the halls of Euclid Central.

We sing our praise to thee,
In gratitude for memory's
Of friendships that were made
in joy and sorrow.
That we shall cherish now
and ever more.
Friend of our youth, we hail thee,
To thee we pledge our
faith and loyalty.
Wo^uk - g<Uut ^, Beck
To members of the January and June
graduating classes, 1 947 — my most cordial
greetings. Many of you have had the
privilege of attending Euclid Central for six
years. Within that time you have had the
benefit of stimulating instruction and wise
and kindly guidance. It has been a rare
privilege for members of the Faculty to see
young boys and girls develop into young
men and young women. I trust that dur-
ing these years you have discovered your
responsibility to society. More than this, I
hope you have developed a desire to work
for the common good of all. It is my fervent
hope that you will ever be loyal to these
very noble ideals.
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS.
"Opus '47" marks another milestone in the
progress of this school and community. This
splendid yearbook is one of the high points in
Euclid Central High School's commemoration of
Euclid's sesquicentennial (1797-1947) and the
Golden Jubilee of our first graduating class
It is my distinct pleasure to have o role in
the dedication of this excellent summary of stu-
dent and faculty life. Richly deserved congratu-
lations are extended to the staff and sponsor of
Euclid Central respects the past and greets
eagerly the opportunities in the present and
New dean of girls at Euclid Central is Miss Dorothy B. Gill,
who was formerly with the faculty at Euclid Shore. Besides
handling the difficult dean's position, she teaches Junior High
science and heads the Girls' League and the Red Cross.
Mr. Clifford Owens, the dean of boys, is one of the helpful
advisors of this school. His job is that of keeping the boys of
Euclid Central in good harmony. Under his guidance they are
well on their way to becoming good and dependable citizens
of the community.
A vital man in our school system is Mr. Voorhees. As direc-
tor of student personnel he is very busy keeping students in tune.
Among his many duties are issuing work permits and straighten-
ing out problems of returned veterans.
As well as filling the position of school treasurer, where he is
called upon to take charge of ticket sales and money for various
organizations, Mr. Clemens Blauch carries a regular teaching
schedule with classes in English, Government, American History,
and Social Problems.
Members of the Board of Education who have helped to
maintain the American principles of free education in Euclid
ore Loren J. Bullard, John F. Davis, Anton E. Strohm, Loyal E.
Luikart, Russell H. Erwine, Frank Mills, and C. E. Bowman.

This year twenty-five percent of the teachers
are in the Science Department. The science
classes are taught in what is calleci the "Science
Wing" where several rooms contain all the
necessary equipment for conducting experiments,
the most popular part of the course. The classes
have movies, take trips and have other outside
activities when conditions are right.
The Science Department as well as the rest
of the school is proud of the results of the recent
examinations given at Kent, Ohio, for Lenore

The Math Department under Mr. Koth had two projects for this year. The
first was to standardize the math classes so that in future years the student would
have no difficulty when he changed classes. The second project was the cen-
tralizing of the moth department at one headquarters. An office was set up in
which all math tools, supplementary texts, work books, and a file of individual
students' math work to show their progress ore kept. The teachers may borrow
from the office at any time.
Trigonometry, general moth, advanced algebra, and shop math are offered
to fill the needs of future college students as well as of those who will immediate-
ly begin earning their living after graduation.

Mr. Marcotte has charge of the Foreign Language Department. This year
one hundred-forty students are studying either French, Spanish, Latin, or gen-
eral language. French had not been taught at Euclid Central for five years and
this year it was brought back into the curriculum. The first semester Mr. Marcotte
was assisted in this class by Mrs. Degner, a practice teacher from Western Re-
serve University. Pictured below is a scene from one of Mr. Marcotte's Spanish
dosses in which he celebrated "apple for the teacher" day.
Miss Surrarrer's weekly vocabulary lists ore remembered by many of the
alumni. Today her students still inform us that she has not run out of words
or definitions. The outstanding activity of the Senior English classes was their
trip to the Hanna to see Maurice Evans portray "Hamlet."

The Art Classes aim to create interest and un-
derstanding in art and train those people who
are going to specialize in art after graduation.
Entries were made in poster contests and the
National Scholastic Art Contest this year.
The boys' industrial art classes work with
metal, wood, and printing and study the tools
used in this work; while the girls' home economics
classes have projects in sewing, and textile
painting, and they have full charge of the re-
freshments at all faculty teas. The cooking
classes put on six luncheons to which they in-
vited other students, faculty members, and
parents. The girls visited the Health Museum
and several clothing factories.

Obtainable in the Commercial Depart-
ment are courses in typing, shorthand,
and book-keeping. Also offered is the
Commercial Co-operative course, where
the students are in school in the morning
and obtain work experience in the after-
noon. This comes under the philosophy
of "Learning to do by doing." In most
cases the students at graduation remain
with the company for whom they worked
as a co-operative student. These stu-
dents have made an enviable record by
their success in the offices of Euclid.
This good relationship has been a boost
for all graduates of Euclid Central who

Let's pretend the year is now 1957. Ten year
from Euclid Central High. We predicted in 1947 \
Succeeded they have. Let's look in on their variou
Coming toward us is that tall and noble form of WILLIAM
OSTENDORF. He is a high ranking ofFicer in the food testing
kitchen of the Navy. We find many of the members of this
class still in Cleveland. Walking into one of the largest law
firms of Cleveland, we find BETTE HAYDU, sitting on the knee
of her boss, but suddenly a flash of furs and sparkling jewelry
comes into ihe ofFiee. Under the furs is none other than the
former LILLIAN MODIC, the boss's wife.
"I Have A Lady," these famous words said by our good
friend IVOR BORK. He's the left balcony assistant for the
Doctor I. Q. Program. Still in Cleveland, we visited the ofFice
of the local newspaper. As editor we find VINCE GLOBOKAR,
and his assistant, PAUL BOYD. The name of their paper is
"The Moaner." Featured on the front page is a sketch of
JOHN MRSNIK, who has just been acclaimed the "Champion
Moaner of 1957."
Traveling by rocket plane, we move to Atlantic City, where
the annual "Mr. America Contest," is being held. The judges
include two Clevelanders. ELEANOR FRANICH, designer of
men's sportswear, and JOAN KITTLEMAN, a buyer for a large
Cleveland Department Store, will award this title. The winner
is LARRY STARK, another former Euclid Centralite. He will
receive 10,000 dollars, which will be used for future activities
at the race track. While in New York, we visited the ofFice
of the Broadway Travel Bureau, and to our surprise found
GUS KAUTROUPAS as the owner and operator. He highly
recommended to us the play that is shocking Broadway,
starring MISS LUCILE McNEAL. Miss McNeal was recently
voted by her public as the top stage star of the year.
s since the brightest class of students graduated
hat every member of this class would succeed.
Traveling again, we move to South America, where we find
MARY SVRGA being swept off her feet by the South American
gentlemen. South America take her away! On our way back
to Cleveland, we stopped once again in New York. And
greeting us in bright lights is the pretty smile of ELSIE ZELE.
She portrays the "Woman of Distinction" for the Four Roses'
Back in our home town, we find that MARY CORSE has
opened up an exclusive dress shoppe. RAY CALEN, is still
frying to persuade GLENN SANDERS, steamship tycoon, to
give him two cut-rate tickets to Sweden. One is for a cute
blond, better known as Mrs. Calen. Although not in Cleve-
land, CHUCK KASE and ED. DICENZO are bringing fame and
victory to the Cleveland people. Chuck plays baseball with
the Cleveland Indians, now the Pennant winners for three
years. Ed. is the star and captain of the Cleveland Brown's
Football team. DON PEITRO, Mayor of Euclid, has recently
given an address at the high school's Commencement Services.
Now we look in on the J & B Pretzler Co., where sifting
behind a gold trimmed desk is president JOHN BROOS. In
his employ is CORLISS ROACH, as chief pretzler bender. The
rival company owned by DICK MAHER, has just completed a
new formula for crunchless peanuts.
Now it's Saturday night and on the air is the Hit Parade.
Star band is directed by DON BLACK. Featured saxophonist
is JACK SOLON. The new sponsor of the Hit Parade is
wealthy TOM JACKSON, also known as the King of the Midget
Auto Races. SELMA WEINSTOCK has taken time off from her
two children, to win the National Women's Tennis Champion-
ship. She was recently named the ideal mother and sportster.
GUu PnjOfJteoif,— jiMiA, i947
Now as we gaze into our crystal ball, we see the June graduates of 1947 after a number of
years have passed, and this is what we find:
WILLIAM KERSLAKE, the great scientist, has finished his
experiments which prove the Einstein theory of relativity in-
correct. STAN LUCAS, however is not quite as fortunate as Bill
and is still trying to write a perfect paragraph to please Mr.
Blackburn. Then we have DAVE ORR and DICK KOSTIC who
find that being veterinarians is: a profitable business.
Still at work on the new consolidated high school of Euclid
are engineers DON ZNIDARSIC, DON FRAZIER, AL BASSETT,
and DICK SPAETH. They are working hard to finish the school
building so sorely needed since the increase of population.
PAT KREYSSIG and BETTY SAWHILL are dividing their time
between families and work. Pat is teaching physical educa-
tion, while Betty is working in a nursery school.
Having hod a class of outstanding musical talent, we find
band leader LOUIS MIKOLICH rehearsing for his performance
at the Palace. His has been judged the Spotlight Band of
1957. His featured singer is WILLA DINWOODIE who has a
pleasing radio voice also. GINNY STENBERG and her saxo-
phone have made the Phil Spitalny Orchestra. You perhaps
have heard her on Sunday evenings.
BOB KLAUS, after having had enough Navy life before re-
turning to school, is still trying to find the right girl. JOE
KOCHEVAR finds life in the Navy is not so bad, even with
ten more years to come.
Our four JOHNSONS, none brothers, have all separated.
DON, having his college degree in his suitcase is now on a
visit to Alaska, but ALLEN finds life in the Navy very interest-
ing. KEN is playing with the Cleveland Barons hockey team

Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, and we might add doing
If you have in mind traveling by air, we can guarantee
efficient service from the expert pilot ART POHL, and hostesses
MARIAN JAMES and PEG ESMIOL. A short trip to New York
is a good excuse to stop at JOE LIKOSAR's exclusive night
spot. He has been giving much competition to the Stork Club.
While you'r< still there, you may chance to meet MARILYN
JONES who IS a model at Saks Fifth Avenue, but if you
need to have your hair set, be sure to go to DONNA SAN-
NER's beauty salon, located on Lexington Avenue in the heart
of the city. You can also go to Madison Square Gardens,

ing on her horse ranch in Montana, while SONJA THORN-

store, you undoubtedly will see the former ARLENE NEAL,

ZAKOVSEK. They buy their family food supplies from him
and their drugs from RONALD POLLACK, now a registered
pharmacist, who owns the drug store just around the corner.
KAY GOLINAR is dividing her time between family and
job as soda jerk, as ALICE MACZUGA is doing with her own
beauty salon. They are kept busy doing a gpod job at two
things, which would be enough for anyone.
The former PEGGY FENWICK was seen down town, with
her beautiful daughter, the other day. LOIS YEAGER, who
was in search of a new outfit for her daughter, met MILDRED
WILLIS buyer for the Sterling and Welsh Company as she
was coming out of the store. In the conversation Mildred
said that TERESA WALTERS was also doing buying, but for
the Malle Company.
CMARLOTTE KOMINSKY has lots of interesting things to tell
her friends about her world tour, while DORIS BURGETT can
carry on the conversation throughout the United States. She
has now seen all 48 of them on vacations from her art studio.

named "World Famous Woman Champion." Not a champ
herself, but having a championship team, MARGARET

took many years of endeavor, but she finally reached the top.
On the team we find RALPM MIRSCM, 1st baseman; ED
MIKOVIC, outfielder; and JOE LOVSIN, pitcher.

On November 15, 16, 1946, the Junior Class presented "What A Life." The play
concerns the difficulties in the life of Henry Aldrich on a typical day in North High
School. An examination in Roman History, his failure to get homework done, some
stolen band instruments, a second hand tuxedo and his rivalry with George Bigelow
for the affections of Barbara Pearson all figure prominently in the plot.
The play, under the direction of Mr. Edward Hoon, was double cast so that more
than thirty juniors had an opportunity to appear during the two night performance.

BtniU ^fi the Band
The Symphonic Concert Bond of EucMd Central has become one of the out-
standing groups of the school due to the reputation it has gained throughout
Greater Cleveland. Since T942, it has maintained its standing as a first division
band in the state contest. It was also selected as the clinic band for the Music
Educators National Convention in 1946. Consistently placing a high number of
v/inners in the solo and ensemble contest keeps each player constantly at work.
During this season the Band will give four classical concerts and as only they
can do, will entertain with a "Concert in Swing." The Football season found the
band at every game, at home or away, with a snappy new routine each week.
The band also played concerts at local industries during lunch hour and at each
of the grade schools. An average of 85 public appearances each year keeps
band members reporting to school each day at 7:45 (A. M.). Euclid Central rs
really proud of this group and its director, Mr. Dale Harper.
For fifty years there has been a choir at Euclid Central. Many have been
outstanding and this year was no exception, for the selections presented were
truly an embodiment of the fine tradition of American music.
Under the capable direction of Mr. John Beck, the choral group with its
one hundred harmonizing voices was continuously busy preparing for its many
appearances through the school year. Especially inspiring was the Christmas
Concert with the candle-light procession in the darkened auditorium.
From the choir sixteen members are chosen for the Madrigals and others
are selected for the Chapel Choir, an impressive group of sixty voices.
A new member of the music faculty this year was Mr. Willard Chapman,
the director of the Junior Choir.

The Orchestra at Euclid Central assumes a position that no other group
can fill. Its activities are chiefly centered in the cultural side of school life.
While the orchestra usually assists, rather than taking the spotlight. Without
this group many activities would be less pleasant. Who would want to graduate
without the orchestra helping them down the aisle with "Pomp and Circum-
stance?" What would a class play be like without the orchestra in the pit?
Smaller than the band, but more Reserved the Orchestra is an important part of
the musical activity of Euclid Central.

The Junior High Band of Euclid Central was organized in 1942 under the
direction of Mr. Albert Mitchel with an enrollment of thirty-five members. The
band gave its first concert in the Spring of 1943. Since then it has given at least
one concert a semester. Junior solists and ensembles have entered the Greater
Cleveland contest for the last five years. This year the Junior Band plans to enter
the Greater Cleveland Band contest. The enrollment for 1946-47 is fifty-five
members lacking only a few instruments of being a symphonic band.

In the fall of 1946, Coach Thompson had a
nucleus of many fine lettermen, besides good re-
serve materia! to work with. Practice started
in August and after weeks of hard work, our
gridders were ready for their first instruction in
actual league play.
Rocky River invaded the home gridiron, for
our first conference game of the year and were
crushed 27 to 0. We then went forth to win at
Springfield and Wickliffe. The team was now
ready for the supreme test, Euclid Shore unde-
feated as yet was to be host in a battle that
probably would decide the conference champion-
ship. The game was marked by rugged line play
but poor offensive on the part of the boys from Euclid Central. The Lions succumbed to a last
half aerial barrage and went down to what proved to be their only defeat of the year.
Joe Lovsin's toe was a constant threat at all times and his quick kick became a potent
weapon. Captain was Ed Mickovic, the kickoff and conversion assignments were ably handled
by Bill Kerslake and Jim Meglan. While passing chores were divided between Don Pokorny
and Rocco Baldossarre. Bob Drobnick called signals and Coach Thompson and Jim Calvert di-
rected strategy from the bench. Ivor Bork and Eel DiCenzo made the All-Conference Team.
Our Lions concluded a most successful season with their triumph over the Bedford Bearcats,
having held their opponents to a total of 51 points while they crossed the goal line for 161
A new idea designed to help out the Athletic Injury Fund for the Conference was sponsored
by our coach. This was a round robin played at Shaw Field on September 6, which added ma-
terially to the fund and it is hoped that it will become permanent.

Coach Calvert had enough material this year to make up two first class teams, which he
frequently interchanged on the playing court. Although the teams' sparkling defense and fast
breaking offense was commendable its scoring power was fairly weak, however outstanding
team play and evenly distributed scoring ability enabled our varsity to be better than a "five-
hundred" ball club.
Bob Lehner and Hank Eichorn, the tall boys, played center on their respective teams. Bob,
who was the more frequent starter of the two, is not only the leading scorer of the team, but
also one of the top five in the Eastern Conference. Al Delgado's height aided him in moving up
to the starting team as a forward and playing in partnership with spirited Joe Kochevar. While
on the other team the boys up front were Stan Poropat and Jack Saefkow. As for the backbone
of the team's defense, the guards, we had Art Bosco, Ed Mikovic, Joe Likosar, and Chuck Kas3
who left with his diploma at mid-year. One of the co-captains, Ernie Kehn and Bob Drobnick,
was always on the hardwood.
The Reserves have had a very successful season. Led by captain Frank "Red" Rielly they
fought and scored their way to tie for first place honors.
Coach Harold McBride's freshmen have also had a good year and promise a bright future
for Euclid Central High in Basketball.

Last year Euclid Central had the strongest
track team since the school joined the Eastern
Conference in 1920. Setting new records in all
events, except the 100-yard dash, the team was
undefeated in Conference competition and won
the first Eastern Conference championship in the
history of the school. They also placed second
in the City indoor meet, ninth in the West Tech
relays, third in the Rocky River relays, sixth in
the District, and seventh in the State meets.
This year we hope to repeat our victory in
the Conference meet, being at almost full
strength with the exception of Frank D'Arcy and
Ivor Bork, last year's two highest point winners.
We already have a good start, being the first
cross-country team to enter in the District meet.
