PROGRAM

*AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL Audience

(Eugene Ross, Director; Miss Betty Hays, Accompanist)

1 2

Oh Beautiful for spacious skies O beautiful for pilgrim feet

For amber waves of grain Whose stern, impassioned stress

For purple mountain majesties A thoroughfare for freedom beat

Above the fruited plain Across the wilderness:

America! America! America! America!

God shed His grace on thee, God mend thine every flaw,

And crown thy good with brotherhood Confirm thy soul in self-control,

From sea to shining sea! Thy liberty in law.

3 4

O beautiful for heroes proved O beautiful for patriot dream

In liberating strife, That sees beyond the years

Who more than self their country loved, Thine alabaster cities gleam

And mercy more than life. Undim'd by human tears.

America! America! America! America!

May God thy gold refine, God shed his grace on thee,

Till all success be nobleness, And crown thy good with brotherhood

And every gain divine. From sea to shining sea.

Mr. Ervin F. Carlisle, after whom this school is named, had an outstand-

ing career in education and community service. Mr. Carlisle, after a long illness,

passed away at his home at the age of 46.

Mr. Carlisle's civic activities spanned all his years here since his graduation

from the Ohio Wesleyan University in 1931, when he came to Willis High School

as football coach and teacher. Possibly his foremost civic achievement was his chair-

manship of the City Charter Commission that promoted the city charter form of

government. This resulted in a successful election and the eventual hiring of Dela-

ware's first city manager.

From 1931 until 1934, Mr. Carlisle served as football coach and teacher.

In 1934 he became principal of Willis High School and in 1937 received his M.A.

degree from the Ohio State University.

He served as acting superintendent of the Delaware City Schools while the

present superintendent, David R. Smith, was in service during the war years. Mr.

Carlisle was instrumental in the establishing and operation of a defense training school

here during the early years of the World War II.

Mr. Carlisle left his school position in 1945 to enter the insurance business.

Because of his valuable school experience and since he was needed, he agreed to run

and was elected to the Board of Education in 1949. He served as president in 1953.

His willingness to serve kept Mr. Carlisle very busy. He served as director

of ushers at the Asbury Methodist Church for more than 15 years.

While serving as chairman of the industrial division of the Community

Chest, he developed the payroll deduction plan which greatly contributed to the

success of the campaigns.

Mr. Carlisle headed the school division of the Jane M. Case Hospital ex-

pansion campaign. He also served as chairman of industry in several Red Cross

drives. Mr. Carlisle was the founder of the Youth Recreation Center, active in

Boy Scout work, and was chairman for several years for the Scout financial drive.

Mr. Carlisle was a past director of the Chamber of Commerce. He was

president of the Delaware Development Corporation which assisted in bringing new

industries to Delaware. He was a member and past director of the local Kiwanis

Club. He was also a member of Hiram Lodge Number 18, F. and A. M. and the

Elks and Moose Lodges.

It is only fitting that this new school, dedicated to the service of young

people, is named the Ervin F. Carlisle School. Mr. Carlisle's life like the school

was dedicated to both young and old in education and service. He was a dedicated

man, unselfish to the end.
