Boys at Covington and Mansfield Receive Honors Austin-Cox Post of the American Legion is inaugurating a policy of awarding a medal each year to the boy of the graduating class of the Grammar School at Covington and Mansfield who represents the highest qualities of character and ability. The selection is made by the classes concerned and the teachers. The fundamental qualities which are considered as a basis for selection are honor, courage, leadership, service and scholarship.

The prime purpose of the award is to encourage every boy to be a better American and to grow up a better citizen.

Ruth Salina Inscho was born in Canoe Camp, Tioga Co., Pennsylvania on November 5, 1898, the youngest of seven children born to William Wallace Inscho and his wife Katherine Dorothea Fuller. Katherine suffered a debilitating stroke and Ruth put her schooling on hold while she cared for her mother for ten years. This explains why she was 28 years old when she graduated from Mansfield High School with the class of 1927. On September, 1928 Ruth entered Taylor University in Upland, Indiana and attended classes for three semesters. She finished her education and received a degree as a social worker at the Baptist Institute For Christian Workers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1932,
George Duncan Wohlschlegel was born and raised in Naples, Ontario Co., New York. After graduation from high school he enrolled at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana where he majored in Greek and Hebrew and studied for the ministry. Newspaper clippings from the Wellsboro Agitator show that in 1927 & 1929 he was the minister of a church in Little Marsh in Tioga County. For whatever reason, he gave up the ministry and eventually went to work in the Social Services office.
On August 12, 1933, Ruth Salina Inscho and George Duncan Wohlschlegel were married by Rev. David Griffith in Mansfield, Pennsylvania. The marriage record indicates that George was a student, probably at the local college, and Ruth was employed as a social worker. A 1932 newspaper clipping states that she was a social worker in the Northern Tier Children’s Home at Harrison Valley.
Duncan & Ruth Wohlschlegel had two children, both born while they resided in Wellsboro. In 1936 Eleanor Jane was born and Edward John was born in 1939. In 1944 they were divorced. Ruth & the children lived in Wellsboro, Mansfield & Canoe Camp and finally in 1948 they moved away. Eventually they went to San Jacinto, California and lived with Bertha Inscho, widow of Ruth’s brother, Thomas. Ruth Inscho Wohlschlegel died on January 11, 1975 in Santa Clara County, California. Her legacy is the beautiful poetry that she wrote over many years.

1927 Mansfield High School Yearbook
We, of the Alumni, looking back to our senior days, well recall the writing of orations, prophecies, wills and the innumerable tasks attendant in the dispatch of them. We gracefully blush as we recall the flattering pinnacles on which we placed one another in our prophecies. Never has a class passed through these portals of learning but that one of its members was to be entrusted with the Presidency of the United States at some future date. A few more years of seasoning and we may begin to expect results. These notes do not, therefore, record the illustrious rise of an Alumnus or Alumnae to the exalted position of prophet. The Alumni is a substantial group of common people striving merely to attain that “Golden Mean” of the ancient Greeks.
Joe “Dutch” Bedenk will take up his duties as head coach of football at the University of Florida this September.
Joseph Panepinto and Philip Datillo are attending State College. According to all reports they have been model frosh.
Olive Longstreet, Marian Decker and Edson Strange are studying at the University of Illinois.
Reed Smith is studying engineering and softly crooning little ditties
“I know the engino;
I know what makes it go.
How in the world did I find that out?

Sarah Bates is Salutatorian of this year’s class. Donald Benson, President of the Freshman Class, has put in a busy and profitable year organizing the activities of the class and getting things in general on the Hill under control. Earl, “Fat,” Mudge was elected next season’s captain of football by his team mates. Francis Kelly was captain of the basketball team this last season and Paul Miller is the captain-elect of next year’s ball cagers for the Red and Black. Other members of the Alumni have taken part in dramatics and social activities throughout the year.
Each year gives rise to a new group of gluttons for punishment, sacrifices on the altar of humanity. Those receiving awards this season are Mae Lent, Margaret Webster, Margaret Williamson, Doris Ingalls, Richard “Dick” Stilwell, Janice Clark, Marie Kiley, Ruth Blair, Gladys Warters, and Gordon Warters. Married.

Others of the Alumni whom we have missed are gone, but not forgotten.
We have herewith published notes concerning all from whom we have heard
this year. The editor of last year’s notes suggested the members
of the association drop a card during the year to the Manscript Board,
so that the Alumni Editor might have a snap of it in writing up this department.
I have an amendment to offer to that very suggestion. It would be
fine for next year’s Alumni Editor to send each member of the Alumni an
addressed postal card.
