We sing our praise
To thee, our Alma Mater,
In gratitude for memory's golden store,
Of friendships that
Were made in joy and sorrow
That we shall cherish now and ever more.
Friend of our youth,
We hail thee, Euclid Central,
To thee we pledge
Our faith and loyalty.
This is the third year of a new age in which a deci-
sion must be arrived at; it is the Atomic Age, and
the decision is that of ultimate disaster or peace
among one's brothers. As we seniors come from
high school, we are faced with a problem of adjust-
ing ourselves to society. Our earnest prayer is:
"Let ours be a society of good will and not a society
— Jean Smith
We, the seniors, dedicate this final year book to
two teachers, Miss Edna Surrarrer, who has for ten
years aided the students of Euclid Central High
School to enjoy better the beautiful poems of the
past and to learn words that will enable them to
obtain a brighter tomorrow. And Mr. John Beck,
who has not only built choirs that are imposing
attributes of the memory of our auditorium, but
who has familiarized us with the melodies that will
live in our reveries and dreams forever.
Miss Surrarrer's and Mr. Beck's friendship and
sincere interest in every student as an individual
who deserves considerate regard has inspired us to
do our best in high school as well as after gradua-
With this yearbook as a record of
The Graduating Classes of January and
June, 1949, Euclid Central will cease
to be a regular high school. Proud is
its record as a school. Great have been
its contributions to the local commu-
nity and to the State. With a faculty
of men and women of high purposes
and sound convictions, it has constant-
ly brought to the young people of the
community the finest achievements
of our social inheritance.
As you leave the school with our
best wishes and high expectations we
urge you to cherish the high ideals
that have been developed here and to
be constantly loyal to the great pur-
poses of life. May God bless you and
give you strength for the tasks that lie
Very truly yours,
R. H. Erwine
Superintendent of Schools
FOR THE OPUS, 1949
This yearbook will be cherished by
students and friends of Euclid Central
for many years to come. It is, in a
sense, a farewell tribute to our high
school which we all honor and revere
Its pages serve as a mirror to portray
the daily life which our students and
faculty lived together during the past
year. Our appreciation and congratu ■
lations are extended to the Opus staff
and sponsor for the colorful account
of Euclid Central's last year as a senior
high school. The spirit of Euclid Cen-
tral as reflected in this yearbook is
evidence of a school loyalty which is

Miss Clara Chiara
Mr. Robert Holloway
Miss Clara Chiara, who this year
received her Doctor's degree from
Ohio State University, has been Dean
of Girls at Euclid Central for the past
two years. Her interest in the welfare
of the girls and their problems has
been unending. Her experience in
handling girls and her fine education
have fitted her well for this position.
In Sept. of 1947 Mr. Robert Hollo-
way became dean of Boys at Euclid
Central. His past experiences in han-
dling men, along with his college edu-
cation help to equip him for this posi-
tion. He did a great deal of work with
them while in the Navy and has done
an excellent job here at Euclid Cen-

SENIOR FAREWELL POEM
It is with a nostalgic sigh
We leave Euclid Central High
And all that it does signify
The memories of the Shore-Central games,
The concerts, the plays, the dances,
The Echo, the choirs and the band,
All have immortal fame in our hearts.
For when we close the high school door
For the last time, and then, no more
The thoughts will come to us
With tears and soft flowing sounds
Of the life, the irrevocable life
Of Euclid Central High.
As through our minds we gaze
Upon these happy, those youthful days,
We long to be in that past phase.
But now, no longer is there a senior high
Except in our reminiscent soul's eye,
Our rival team and we've combined
And you'll no Euclid Central find,
At least not the Central of yesterday.
For it's gone into the past, a prosaic way.
Farewell to the friends we've met and loved,
Farewell to our classmates, "We'll meet above.
For into the world we bring our dreams
And they will come true as Cod deems.

JANUARY - JUNE PROPHECY * 1949
JANUARY CLASS PROPHECY
We'd like to take you into the year 1959, Laguna Beach, Florida, where the
multi-millionaire lawyer, Al Harke, is holding a large house-party for his
many friends. As we stroll down to the beach we find the fabulous Ramon
Dries lolling there. As he approaches the water's edge and starts to wade
in, we notice that he is wearing an expensive looking wrist watch. My friend
calls out to him. He thanks us for the warning, takes off the wrist watch,
puts it in a small pocket of his swimming trunks and wades off into
Also enjoying the Florida sunshine we see Esther Kessler who is now running
to be the first woman president of the United States. Her campaign slogan
is "Ahead with Red." With Esther is her famous photographer and body
guard, Anthony Ferrato.
On a near-by pier, fishing, we find Wilma Johnson trying in vain to hook her
Just arriving is Dolores Perat, owner of the popular "400 Club," thrilled over
the success of its grand opening. Given credit for this success was head
food-taster, Dick DeCenova. Among those present at the opening were Bob
Ksenich, successful farmer, and Walter Jaros, Bob's private mechanic for his
tractors. Wally's main job consists of keeping the tractors free from dust.
As we enter the house we see Pfc. Roland Hazzard and Al Oesterle, Captain
of the S.S. Washtub, surrounded by a crowd of happy people, telling of the
"lost weekend" they spent in search of some good rich milk which they
hadn't had for quite some time. They searched in vain all day Friday, Satur-
day, and finally on Sunday they came to a large building with the sign
"Creamatory" posted on the front. In front of the place there were many
large, expensive looking cars. Thinking at last he had found a place to get
a good drink of milk, Roland went in. A couple of hours passed and Roland
didn't return. Finally a large group of people led by James Stewart, owner
of the establishment, came out and drove away. Presently Roland came out
all tattered and torn, bruised and shorn. When asked by Al what had hap-
pened, Roland said, "I walked in, said 'What's cookin'?' and they all jumped
Speeding up to the house in his midget auto racer is Lloyd Dunlap — Oops!!
missed that curve!!! Rushing to his rescue is none other than the top sur-
geon of the Kalberer Clinic, Walter Kalberer, and his head nurse, Stephanie
Kornprobst. While coming to, Lloyd is singing, "All I Want For Christmas
Is My Two Front Teeth."
Also arriving is the distinguished David Payne, chairman of the Interstate
Commerce Commission. He has just appointed Mickey Schneider head me-
chanic of the White House Garage.
Proudly telling of her great success is Betty Lou Rohrbach, now private sec-
retary to Richard Welling, president of the Fix-lt-Yourself Shop. She has
fulfilled her ambition to travel. She has to walk to work and back every
Approaching us is the scholarly Art Morse who \% being followed closely by
the prominent psychiatrist, Jean Smith. She is making careful observation
of Art's case. He is the only freshman who has been in the class for ten
Also present is Allene Toth, the world's greatest success. She has just given
Larry Swaney $100 to set himself up in business. He is now stiff competi-
tion for John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
Next we see Douglas Miller, president of the E. E., who stops to chat with us
a moment. With him is his private secretary, Mary Lou Stefancik, who en-
tertains him in his spare time by singing such classics as "Marzi Dotes."
Strolling through the garden is Professor Robert O. Bailey and his brilliant lab
student, Mary Ann Mavsar. (He is telling her the answers to tomorrow's
The conversation at the present time is about Bob Cenzen and his champion
athletic teams at Euclid Senior High School.
Dolores Beakel has just returned from Hollywood where she was starring in
the picture said to be most likely to win the Academy Award.
Jeannette Danley has just arrived with Paul Chaney, her chief instructor, at
the "Chaney Institute of Art."
Refreshments are now being served, so we must hurry along into the dining
room where we see Jean Saso who has recently opened a Beauty Salon on
Fifth Avenue. Such celebrities as Corinne Brown, Mary Pfaff and Virginia
Hansen are seen there often. Corinne Brown, "America's Number One
Home Maker," has written an article on, "How To Be Happy Though Mar-
ried." Working as Jean's advertising manager, we find Dick Cederlund
busily handing out handbills on Broadway.
John Bann, electrical engineer, and Frank Bosco, structural engineer, are tell-
ing of their work on the new sky scraper to be located on Euclid's Public
The Euclid Clinic is now directed by a competent staff consisting of Dick
Coski and Ervin Emery.
As we go out the door we see a large crowd gathering around a very distin-
guished looking man. Upon investigation we find that it is the one and only
Carl Farcna, now Secretary of the Navy.
Once again out in the open we notice, away out in the distance on
the ccean, Gerald Shelden paddling away on his home-made canoe, trying to
get away from it all.
Last, but not least, is Bob Pinkava whom we have just seen stepping into his
custom-built limousine. We hear that he is now a successful manager of
one of America's outstanding office supply stores.
June Prophecy — 1949
A great reunion of the June class of 1949 is about to begin. The year is now
Marion Anderson is the first to arrive in her '59 yellow Mercury convertible.
She has just completed a tour of Florida. Anthony Arko went along for the
ride as a traveling salesman, trying to sell a punch board to raffle off the High
Level Bridge. Bill Long is stiff competition for Marion in his fancy red con-
Wanda Armour will be entertaining us with her impersonations.
Joan Baeckler and Barbara Westbrook are late in arriving as they are still in
search of an ambition.
Marie Baitt and Edna Smith are next to be welcomed into this happy throng.
They have come, willing to give their services if needed. They are both grad-
uate nurses from Nancy Nimmo's School of Nursing.
Next to join us is the happy-go-lucky John Bartone. Pat Beam has been tell-
ing of her trip around the world. She doesn't understand why she can't go
through it instead of around it. Nancy Beck will model the latest styles in
women's wear on this great occasion, her fashion designers being Eldean
Ceasar and Mary Cherry. It isn't very practical as it takes two women to
help carry the dress and one to wear it.
Adrienne Bennett has brought along as chaperon the elderly Mr. Dale Harper
whom she is still teaching eight hours a day how to roller skate. Latest re-
ports say that Ruth Bennington is on her way. She is in her freshman year
at college. Peggy Berger just breezed by. She is chasing Joe Blatnik. It
seems she heard he was in the money-making business. Chuck Boyd just
came through the door. He is working on an idea for making his second
million; he's afraid that he will die a pauper. Alice Brack, Pat Healey, and
Al Bradac have never gotten over the fact that they graduated from High
School. They are discussing the fact when Frank Brodnik arrives after hav-
ing fulfilled his ambition and made a million. He made it in Andy Bubonic's
As you probably have noticed by now, our class was and is a very successful

EUCLID CENTMAL HIGH
Since 1942 the Euclid Central High School Band has maintained
its standing as a first-division band in the State Contest. It was selected as
the Clinic Band for the Music Educators National Convention in 1946. Dur-
ing the football season the band is always ready with a new routine each
week. As a concert band they are seen at Gala Night, Big Night, Patrons'
Concert, and Concert In Swing. The band members have placed a high num-
ber of winners in the Greater Cleveland Solo and Ensemble Contest. The
efforts of each member and the director, Mr. Dale Harper, has given Euclid
Central a band to be proud of. An average of eight-five public appearances
each year keeps bands members very busy. The band also plays at the five
Euclid Schools to acquaint the pupils with the different instruments and dif-
ferent types of music.
Consisting of 120 voices, the Choir is one of the largest
and one of the "best." They meet in the Little Theatre first;
period. They have sung at the Baptist Church, Church of
Epiphany, Christmas assembly, Gala Nite, Big Nite. They may
go to the contest in spring.
They are now doing "Battle Hymn," "Comin' Thru the
Rye." (two Waring numbers), "Hiking Song," "Calm is the
Night," "Largo" (Handel's) , "Skip to Ma Lou," "Shew Me Thy
Way," "Lord of Hosts," "Pilgrim's Chorus, "In the Still of the
Night,' "Where the Blue of the Sky," and Christmas music in-
cluding Waring's "Night Before Christmas."
The Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Dale Harper is one of the out-
standing musical organizations at Euclid Central. Evening programs such as
Junior and Senior Plays, Commencement, and several others are assisted by
this group. Their performance in the Patrons' Concerts is enjoyed by many
Euclid music lovers. The Orchestra has distinguished itself several times by
taking first place in the Greater Cleveland Orchestra Contest of the Class A

JUNIOR HIGH BAND
With an enrollment of thirty-five members, Mr. Albert Mitchel organ-
ized the Euclid Central Junior High Band in 1942. Since then the band has
doubled in size. The band gave its firct concert in 1943, and now it gives
two concerts a year, plays for Junior High Night, Big Night and Junior High
Assemblies. The band has taken the most first places in the Greater Cleve-
land Contest in 1947. The members have placed high in the Cleveland Solo
and Ensemble Contest also. The junior band gives experience to the mem-
bers that is very valuable as this leads to a place in the Senior Band.

In the final football season at Euclid Central, the team was not strong
in victory, but more important, they were strong in sportsmanship. The
Euclid Central Lion eleven tackled and ran hard. Coach Thompson ex-
pressed it in these words: "They were the greenest team I have ever had, but
they played hard until the final gun sounded." The team's "spark plug" was
the Captain, Rocco Baldassarre. Thanks to the team for the fine spirit you
have shown us in our last year at Euclid Central.

When the final season of varsity and reserve basketball came to a close
in March, what the team lacked in victories, they gained in sportsmanship.
Coach James Calvert's men won only two games, both from Brush, but
showed well against the others. Meanwhile the reserve squad fought their
way through the league, ending in a tie for second place.
The varsity rode a hard-luck wagon, losing most of their games by very
few points. A sizeable crowd was present at all home games, and the inter-
est shown in both the varsity and reserve teams was high.
Garfield was the victor in the Eastern Conference with a victory streak
that stretched out over 19 scheduled games.

At the beginning of the 1949 baseball season, Coach Al Miller made
the statement that he was pleased with the spirit and the size of the turnout
for the team. Thirty boys, among them five lettermen, started working out
in February, and built up a team.
The squad trained strenuously, and lived the part of baseball players.
During the previous season the team lost only four league games, and it was
expected to break even in the won-lost columns. A rigid schedule was set
up, and the entire school looked forward to the big games.
With a capable pitching staff and the protection of a tight infield and
outfield, the Lions nine hoped to show well against the other teams in the

Boyd, Crubbs. Bubonic and the rest of the crew.
They're always out there fighting
And all full of steam.
They're peppy and they're scrappy,
They can beat most any team.
So cheer for our baseball squad
Always playing with all their heart,
Let's stand beside them
And cheer on from the start.

Opening the 1949 track season with a victory march of 20 consecutive
dual meets to protect, the Lion squad ran hard to build up the string. The
boys, under the coaching of Dale Thompson, did well in the Arena meet, in
which they had been placed back into Class "C" after the re-grouping that
put them into Class "B" Competition last year.

while Suzie Johnson manages basketball. Kay Moschell has the
duty of managing the volleyball games, and softball is under the
supervision of Doris Kling.
The Cheerleaders this year consist

The Girls' League was or-
ganized in 1940 for the pur-
pose of directing girls' activi-
ties in school. This year they
have had charge of the girls'
assemblies and have done a
grand job in arranging assem-
blies which have been of in-
terest to all the girls of the
P. A. CLUB
The P. A. Club has been a
big success this year in bring-
ing us the morning announce-
ments. This club, plus the rest
of the student body, has en-
joyed the use of the new fre-
quency modulation radio,
which enables the students to
receive broadcasts from not
only station WBOE, but also
from any Cleveland FM sta-
tion. This club has as its spon-
sor Mr. Heinlein, who has the

On the nights of April 29, 30, the Senior Class put on an excellent per
tormance of "My Cousin From Texas." This hilarious farce took place in
the heme of Beulah Scott, the Frivolous mother of Sheila, Lucille and Wilbur,
a mischievous boy of nine. Sheila Scott was about to be married to Preston
Rogers; she was not very excited about it because she could not erase from
her mind the memory of johnny Benton, a young man she'd known for a
brief two weeks during her summer vacation. It was the day before her
wedding; the Scotts were expecting a visit from "Cousin Tommy" from
I exas, whom they had never seen before. When Johnny arrived at the
house, he was mistaken for "Cous : n Tommy" and decided to carry on the
masquerade. He convinced Sheila that she was really in love with him and
they had to find a way to get her marriage postponed. Their efforts to do
this provided several riotous scenes; this was calmed moderately by Sheila's
friend, Doris's common sense. Then Cactus Kelly, a cowboy, made
his appearance, johnny believed Cactus was the real "Cous ; n Tommy" and
Cactus, for reasons of his own. encouraged this belief; so Johnny passed Cac-
tus off as his twin brother, "Timmy." Just when he thought everything was
going smoothly, the real "Cousin Tommy" showed up in the person of Toma-
sina, a beautiful young girl! Johnny, in desperation, claimed her a relation,
too, telling the others they are triplets; Tommy, Timmy, and Tomasina!
Added to the hilarity were the two colored characters, Peaceful, the Scotts'
maid and Eshew, Johnny's valet.

On November 19-20 the Junior Class presented the three-act comedy "Janie" from the
movie and Broadway hit of the same name.
Janie had the advantage of timeliness, being laid in a town near an army camp, telling
what happened when a cavalcade of exuberant young fellows in uniform met a group of high
school young ladies whose parents were the worrying type.
The fun started in the Colburn household when Mrs. Lawrence, a flirtatious Southern
widow, arrives for a visit with her son, Dick, stationed at the near-by camp. The doting
mother, who has been continually following her son is side-tracked by a susceptible bachelor
who is also a guest of the Colburns.
When Janie and Dick and a few friends got together for a little innocent fun while their
parents are out, the party got out of hand. The plot is also complicated a little by Janie's
seven-year old sister, Elsbeth, an amusing child with a flair for making a nuisance of herself.
