We, the Board of Trustees, congratulate each of you for successfully reaching this stepping stone in your life, the completion of ten years of school work. Schooling is a necessary part of every individual's life. In this present fast moving society, with its temptations and worldly attractions, you need to be equipped. You need a certain amount of secular knowledge to properly and profitably discharge your responsibilities in your vocation in life. You need a growing and a never ending amount of spiritual knowledge and equipment to help you remain firm for Christ when the Adversary faces you through the impacts he makes on you in every area of life. You need wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to prepare you to meet problems and to make decisions in life. Our Franconia Mennonite Day School is dedicated to the task of supplying you with this secular and spiritual equipment through Christian teaching and Bible study. During the school years spent at F. M. S. we believe that you have applied yourselves in your studies and availed yourselves of the opportunities afforded you in our school program. As you leave F. M. S. for further schooling or to begin a lifeis vocation, allow Christ to be your constant Guide. Accept the advice of the great Apostle Paul to Timothy. I Tim. 4: 12 - Let no man despise thy youth .... May you say with the psalmist: The Lord is my shepherd . . . Psalm 2311. Remember the words of Jesus. John 15 :5 . . . for without me ye can do nothing. Board Chairman, Russell B. Musselman 8 rincilaa! ana! .xdoluiziorh eddage Dear Graduates, You are the fifth and the largest tenth-grade class to receive diplomas from our school. The experience of graduation will bring you a rightful satis- faction. However, a diploma will not assure your success and happiness in life unless it represents more than scholastic achievement. As you leave, it is our hope that the influences of the school terms you have enjoyed may have strengthened your character, broadened your vision, lifted your ideals, and created within you a deep desire to know and to do God's will. In his words of Proverbs 526, the wise man has given a sure guide for happy living: In all thy way! acknowledge Him, and He Jloall direct thy paths. As yet you do not know all of the ways you will be traveling. But God does. Have the courage to place your life unreservedly into His hands and look forward with confidence to the plan He will reveal for your highest happiness and greatest service.

We have undergone many changes since we first entered school. I am sure that none of us has regretted the happy times we have spent at F. M.S. As we enter our various fields of service we will often remember with joy the many blessings that we have received while attending F. M. S. Some may continue in their schooling while others may begin the field of service they have selected. We will have many opportunities to serve our Master in the years to come. Our days spent at F. M. S. will provide us with confidence for these tasks. JOHN GOTWALS CLASS OFFICERS President, john Gotwals, Secretary, Pauline Halteman CLASS MOTTO Prepare for tomorrow today. CLASS POEM PREPARE FOR TOMORROW ToDAY In this world of war and strife The skies are sometimes gray, But don't be discouraged, keep looking up And prepare for tomorrow today.

S. would like to share some of the highlight features of our New York Trip with you. We started our trip from the Day School at 6:15 A.M. We stopped at johnny's Diner for the benefit of those who didn't have time for breakfast and for those who were ready for their second one. We entered New York through the Holland Tunnel. First we went on a three-hour guided tour by boat around Manhattan Island. We saw many interesting things on this tour. Many of us made use of our cameras when we saw the Statue of Liberty. After the boat ride our next stop was LaGuardia Airport. Soon after we arrived we saw crowds of people and photographers crowd around some one who had just come off a plane. Later we found out that we had seen the first prisoner of war to return home to New York. By this time everyone was hungry so we went to the Hotel Empire and checked in, and had turkey for supper. Our next stop was the tallest building in the world, the Empire State Building. Most of the students went to the hundred-second story, but a few of the girls didn't have the nerve. Later we went to the planetarium where we heard an interesting lecture on "Messengers from Space." Ruth Moyer decided to sleep through the lecture instead of in the hotel. On the way to the hotel we went for a ride on Broadway. Before we went to our hotel rooms we had a devotion period. Miss Peachey, the girls' chaperone, went to investigate some unusual noises and locked herself out of the room Caccidently of courseb. About seven o'clock the next morning, one of the operators from the hotel called each room and told us it was seven o'clock. After breakfast we visited the United Nations and the cathedral of john the Divine. Many students thought the United Nations building was the most interesting place we visited. After this tour we went back to the hotel for lunch and then checked out. Next on our schedule was the Rockefeller Center and the N.B.C. Radio and Television Centers. We had to take the subway to get the bus at 49th street. Everyone rushed in and out of the subway because they didn't want to be left behind. After we boarded the bus we went through Chinatown and the Bowery. We had a twelve-course meal at a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. The smell of some of the food kept some of us from tasting it. Before we left for home we had time to shop in Chinatown. On the way home we stopped at johnny's Diner, because some people didn't like Chinese food. We arrived at school around 10:30, after a wonderful time. Marilyn Landis Doris Clemmer 20 l"2l9CLl"0 for 0l'l'l0I'I"0lfU I. - 2. La Guardia Airport Model of St. John's Fathedral 3.

' ,my- ISN L , l'el9Cl,I"e !0l" 0l'l'l0I"I"0lll C1056 M019 QC? One day as Mr. Lehman and his wife were touring Washington, they stopped at the Library of Congress. While browsing around in the Library their attention was drawn to a large book and they read, "The Graduates of U. S. A. in 1953." They turned to the contents and saw M. S." on page 3,822. Mr. Lehman was very interested, since he taught that year, but had to stop before the year was over. They turned to the page and saw the graduates' names and their addresses. They got paper and pencil, and copied the names. They decided to start visiting the next day. They went to their cabin and made an outline for their trip. They decided to start in Pennsylvania, since Mr. Lehman liked it so well there! When morning came they packed and started on their tour. They arrived in Souderton at 12:00. They were hungry, so they decided to look for a place to eat. No sooner had they decided than they saw an attractive place with a sign out saying, "Mim and Evie's Hoagie Shop." Mr. Lehman stopped the car and went in. When he got in he recognized tne owners to be Miriam Detweiler and Evelyn Musselman. Mim, recog- nizing him, asked him in a very business-like manner if she could help him. He told them he wanted two hoagies. While Mim and Evie made them they were talking with Mr. Lehman, recalling their school days. When the hoagies were finished the girls decided to give them to Mr. Lehman for half price. After they had finished eating, they started out again, but had only gone a mile before Mr. Lehman discovered that his car wasn't working right. They soon came to a garage. Mr. Lehman went in and asked for someone to repair his car. Soon James Lapp came, a very eflicient mechanic. jim, by this time, was taller than Mr. Lehman. Mr. Lehman found out that Jim was a very good mechanic. Jim asked him if he had been to the Christopher Dock School. Mr. Lehman said he was going there next. When they arrived they went in the entrance and saw no one. They looked in a room and saw Wayne Clemens teaching a class of Plane Geometry students. They knocked on the door and Professor Clemens came and smilingly invited them in. After awhile Mr. Lehman and his wife looked around. They found the dietitian in the cafeteria to be Ruth Moyer. Ruth was busily engaged preparing food, but took a few minutes off to speak with them. They returned upstairs and found a door that said, "Nurse," Wondering who the nurse was, they knocked on the door and heard a voice say, "Come in." Stepping in, Mr. Lehman recognized the nurse to be Lois Wismer, who was bandaging one or the pupil's hands. After she was flnished she sat down and talked with them. Soon it was time for school to leave out, so they went on their way. After school left out they came to a beautiful farm. They looked on the mail box and saw it was owned by Paul Cassel. Mr. Lehman drove in to look around. When he went in Paul soon came along and showed him around. He told him that he was raising chickens and had thirty head of milking cows. Paul gave Mr. Lehman a dozen of eggs to show him how good they were. Mr. Lehman asked him if he could buy some land to build a house. Paul thought awhile, then said he could. From there they went to Mark Garis, the architect, to get a blue print for the house. His secretary was Pauline Halteman. They talked awhile with her, and found out that she was married and was keeping house. Then they asked Mark to recommend a good carpenter. He suggested Wilbur Hendricks and Monroe Hunsberger, who were in partnership. So they went to Perkasie, talked with them, and asked them when they could build his house. They called in their secretary and told her to check the books. The secretary was Marilyn Landis. She told them that they could start building the house in a month. 24 Pepafe LI' j0l'l'l0l'I"0l.U From there they went to Hatfield, to "Bergey's Elecric," to buy some electrical appliances. When they went to pay the secretary, there was a handsome young man standing there talking to the secretary who was janet Bergey. When janet saw Mr. Lehman she introduced him to the man, who was her husband. Mr. Lehman paid his bill and went on his way. . Driving along, they came to a large factory. Recognizing the name of the hosiery, they decided to go in. They saw an information desk and inquired who worked there. The woman at the desk said she would show them around. Soon Mr. Lehman noticed two seamers whom he recognized as Arlene Landis and Lorraine Leatherman, so he stopped to talk with them. After awhile they started on again. Suddenly Mr. Lehman spied a nice looking young lady at the other end of the room. Thinking she looked familiar, he went over to see her better. Sure enough, it was Gladys Detweiler. Talking with her, he found out that she was married. They thanked the guide and went to their car. After they left they spied a nice looking grocery store. They went in to see what they could buy to eat. After looking around for awhile, a clerk came and asked if she could help them. Mr. Lehman recognized her as Shirley Swartley. She got the things they wanted and then they went to pay the cashier, who they recognized as Kathryn Hunsberger. He was wondering if she could add correctly and give the right change. He found out she was doing real well. They went on to hunt the remaining students. Soon Mr. Lehman saw a little fellow fall with his bike. He quickly stopped the car and picked up the little fellow. He saw that he was bleeding, so he took him to Grand View Hospital. As he walked in the door he saw an attractive nurse come toward him. Sure enough, it was Miriam Godshall. She cleaned up the little fellow, and they talked about the past. Then Mr. Lehman took the boy home. They went to their car and started to go to the Harleysville Ins iranze ofhcc. When they got there they saw Faye Ruth. She showed them around, since it was quitting time. They appreciated it and left her to go home. They were driving along when they came to a nice house. A sign was out that said "Dressmaking." Even though Mr. Lehman wasn't interested, his wife was, so they went in. A young woman came to the door with a measuring tape around her neck. Mr. Lehman recognized her immediately as Mary Clemens. They talked with her for awhile. Mrs. Lehman promised her she would come back to her to get her dresses made after they moved. From there they went to Philadelphia and stayed in a boarding house over night. In the morning they went and bought a chicken from jean Godshall. She told them that she and her husband went down there to market every week for three days. Soon they came to a large building, "Musselman, Incorp." They went in and saw a young gentleman sitting at a desk in a white shirt, reading the newspaper. It was john Musselman. After talking with john, he found out that he was a Ford dealer. john showed Mr. Lehman around the building and they came to a room where two secretaries were sitting. They were Joan Musselman and Doris Clemmer. Joan was talking on the telephone, so Mr. Lehman talked with Doris. She told him that joan and she were married. He talked for awhile, thanked john for showing them around, and went. They were riding awhile when they came to Hanover, Pa. They saw a large farm with a lot of horses. They drove in and found Stanley Nice and Paul Halteman to be the owners. They went horseback riding and enjoyed it very much. When Mr. Lehman wanted to start his car it wouldn't start, so they bought a horse and a buggy and went their way. 25 Q A.

There are twenty-one girls and fourteen boys with Miss Peachey for homeroom teacher. Our days are full of studies and different activities. Our subjects are Civics, General Business, Science, English, Bible, Algebra, Shop, and Home Economics. We had a choice between General Business and Algebra or Science. Some students decided to take two electives, while a few ambitious ones took all three. This year the singers in our class were in either the Mixed Chorus or Girls' Chorus or in both. We enjoyed singing at various programs both in our school and in different churches of our district. In Science Class we went star gazing, and our ride to LeRoys was the beginning of a happy evening. The Snappy Shutters, where we learned much about photography, the taking, developing, and tinting of pictures, was a lot of help to camera fans and was enjoyed by all who attended the meetings. We thank Wfarren Wenger for his guidance in this club. This year we have learned new things and reviewed old things and we have increased our knowledge greatly.

There were two from each grade in the high school. Mr. Detweiler was our advisor and with his help we did accomplish a few things. One matter was the planning of a Young Peoples Bible Meeting program which was given at the Plain Mennonite Church by some of the students. The purpose of the Council was to keep good relationships between teachers and pupils. James Lapp 34 gif 4 ' 6401144 "Hear our prayer, O Lord, Hear our prayer, O Lord, Incline thine ear to me, and grant us thy peace. Amen." If one would step into the school building on Wednesday mornings during the first period one might hear the strains of this song or others. ' Girls' Chorus meets Wednesday mornings and is made up of the ninth and tenth grade girls. It is led by Miss Peachy whom we appreciate very much. Besides singing at school we sing at churches occasionally. Psalms 96:1-O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord all the earth. By Lois Wismer Wmxevl Czorua f 7701! liafumd At the beginning of the year a mixed chorus was organized, with Mr. Leh- man as director. Our chorus meets once a week, usually on Tuesday mornings. We sang at the school Christmas Program, the Book Week Program, and at various churches. In the month of February we were sorry to see our director leave us. Mr. Leasa then took over the the job of being the director of our chorus. We enjoy this method of witnessing for Christ.

Paper was being torn. We were going to make igloos of papier-mache, covered with salt and flour paste, for our Baffin Island scene. A polar bear, a walrus, dogs, and seals were made of soap. Icebergs were made of wax, and a kayak of wood. The boys carved while the girls made suits for the dolls. We had a happy time making it all. Wouldn't you have, too? Susan Landis WE LIKE MUSIC just before Christmas we were curi- ous about what was in the big box under the table. When the box was opened we found a record player inside. Our teacher read to us interesting stories of famous musicians: Franz joseph Haydn, George Frederick Handel, Wolfgang Mozart, and Ludwig Van Beethoven. Now we listen to music that they wrote. One of our favorite records is Handel's Water Mmic, which we were hearing when this picture was taken. Stanley Godshall AN IMPORTANT VISITOR On the twentieth of March the fourth grade children were hopping up and down with excitement. We were going to have an important visitor! So we got buckets and rags, soap and water. We scrubbed the desks, the walls, the windows and the wood work. At one minute after five Spring came and peeped in the windows. We are glad that our visitor found the room clean and shiny. Donald Beidler Qmle 4 44 f7Airc! gina: e llAt'K ROW: Merrill Moyer, .Xrlin Kriehel, Bruce Moyer, James Alderfer.

Sixth grade made a Palestinian village and also a relief map of Palestine. During the year seventh and eighth grades made Indian villages, early American kitchens, and a products map of the Middle Atlantic States. At recess you might find us playing jacks, ping pong, prisoner's base, or football for studying memory worklb. We have been selling Ready-jell desserts. It looks as though we will teach our goal of 3000 boxes. Among those who have visited our school this year was Mrs. Edwin Weaver, a missionary from India. By telling us about life in India, she again reminded us of the many things we have which we sometimes do not fully appreciate. For devotions on Tuesdays we have missionary stories and mission news. On Wednesdays we have student devotions and on Fridays we have a song service. We hope that because of this school year we will be better fitted for God's service in the future. Grace Meyers .grierwbkiia Slzoog Qyracleri f-5 The first day we came to our new school I was surprised at the inside. It was so nice and fresh and clean waiting for all thirty-seven of us to come, work, play, sing and pray inside its walls. Our school is on the Cold Spring Creamery Road near Doylestown. It was built in 1877. We have a fish acquarium with eight fish on one window sill and on another window sill we have a little turtle called "Snapper." He is a baby mud turtle. At the back of the room on the one bulletin board we have pictures of missionaries. Some are from India, China, Porto Rico, Africa and oh so many other places. We were glad to have Mrs. Edwin Weaver, one of the missionaries from India, to come and tell us about life in India. Our theme for the Christmas program was "Christ for the Whole World." There were scenes of the shepherds, Mary and Joseph, the wise men and the last one was a group of six missionaries and six foreign children. At the end of the program we took an offering for the "India Missionaries Library Fund." On February 15 we had a Valentine party for our mothers. There was a short program, a few games and refreshments. In art we did many different things. Now we are making small dishes out of paper strips and flour paste. Our motto for the year has been J-O-Y which means jesus first, others next and yourself last. This was sometimes hard to keep, but we have had many nice times together for which we thank God.

First we went to see Eunice Reedel, who told us about teaching Algebra to the hard learning students of Ohio. In the little village of Pine Run, we met Nancy Histand. She told us of the interesting happenings at the Bell Telephone Company. Next we went to the Clear Lake Dairy Farms, where Glenn Myers and Paul Miller were doing the evening chores. Then we stopped at the Detweiler Rug Cleaning Company, and saw Robert Detweiler instructing a large group of men in the weaving of rugs. For our next stop, we went to the Myers home. Martha was busily sewing some dresses for her little girls. Then we came to Bedminster township to see Elsie Gahman. We found her taking care of her sick sister. She is taking up nursing at Grand View Hospital. For our last stop we went to Dublin, where we saw Donald Detweiler building a ranch house for his family. H Loretta Trauger and Betty Lou Graybill CLASS WILL Paul Miller wills his long legs to the sixth grade. Loretta Trauger regretfully bestows her wavy hair upon Mary Emma Yothers. Elsie Gahman gladly wills her slim figure to the eighth grade. Betty Lou Graybill regretfully wills her artistic ability to the sixth grade. Martha Myers wills her ability to sell jello to her brothers. Glenn Myers gladly wills some of his intelligence to Walter Histand. Eunice Reedel gladly bestows her good penmanship to the seventh grade. Nancy Histand regretfully wills her willing spirit to the sixth grade. Donald Detweiler gladly wills his talent to sing to Walter Histand. Robert Detweiler wills his ability to play baseball to the sixth grade.

Not as a boat needs an anchor Or stern to keep it straight, But we, with Christ as our Captain Are "Anchored in Him."

CLASS COLORS Pink and Gray CLASS FLOWER Pink Carnation CLASS SONG "I've Anchored in Jesus" 58 Ewing gfariri There are twelve pupils from grades six to ten in our sewing class which started in November. Every two weeks we meet with Miss Derstine as our instructor. We have one electric sewing machine for ten girls. We lay out and cut our materials on the ping pong table. Before Christmas the seventh to tenth grade pupils made covers for tissue boxes. The sixth grade girls made holders for tissues. The new year was started by making skirts, that is by those who had finished their tissue box covers and had a pattern and material. The sixth grade girls are making purses out of "WC21VC-lIS.,, In the future we plan to make blouses while the sixth grade girls continue with "Weave-Irs" and embroidery work. Eunice Reedel Martha Myers My 59 mfiiiop Every other Friday the fellows have a period for workshop. It is a time looked forward to by all of us. We usually have a period of study first during which we sometimes become restless because we are eager to work on our projects. Omar Showalter, our instructor, helps us to understand more about wood, woodworking and using tools. We each have a workbook and sometimes he gives us assignments to be done outside of class. We were permitted to choose the projects we wished to make. Three boys enjoyed making bookends with their initials. Some other projects made included a bow, a letter holder, magazine rack, and a footstool. The other boys found pleasure in making a Chinese polo game to use at school.

She sees in the distance a new house being built. When she comes nearer she notices Arlen, who has taken over his father's business as a building contractor, directing the labor. She continues on her tripg and when an attractive farm catches her interest, she stops at a store to inquire about the owner. "That farm belongs to jesse Mack," the storekeeper informs her. "He supplies the vegetables and fruits for my store." We leave Miss Showalter thinking of the yesterdays which have made today's men and women. 64 IQIQQI' GPG, JQJ OLUQI' QFCLCIQJ llfzmgi 65 A vw!
