JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY The junior class began the year with for.y-eight of cur original fifty-one mem- bers. We chose James Zimmerman for our class president, Robert Rohman, vice president, and Marietta Schneider, secretary-treasurer. Our student council rep- resentatives were Colette Bachman, Phyllis Schumacher and Paul Schrock. The advisers were Mr. Hires and Mr. Larson. In the fall our class had a hayrack ride and theater party. Everyone enjoyed the evening in spite of the rain and mud. One of the main events of the year was our class play, " The Skin of Our Teeth, " by Thornton Wilder. Our class was well represented in both the state literary and music contests. The speech contestants were Harold Neumann, Connie Stamper and James Zim- merman. Robert Chilcot, Donald Halford and Connie Stamper participated in i.he one-act play, " Lithuania. " At the music contest Mary Lee Noe and Barbara Grebner were soloists. Another big day was February 28 when our class rings finally arrived. Everyone enjoyed the excitement of selling at football and basketball games and the track meets. We also held square dances after several of the basketball games. The annual banquet, given in honor of the seniors, was held on April 29 in the auditorium. We sponsored a spring prom for the public after the banquet, which concluded an eventful year.

JUNIOR CLASS PLAY On Monday, Nov. 21, the junior class of MTHS presented Thornton Wilder ' s famous comedy, " The Skin of Our Teeth. " In this story of mankind ' s struggle through the ages, the Antrobus family typifies all of the human race. This three-act play has its setting in New Jersey; the first and third acts take place at the Antrobus home in Excelsicr and the second on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. The first act takes place during the ice ages when Mr. and Mrs. Antrobus are plagued by cold weather and icebergs. When the Antrobus home is invaded by a band of refugees, Mr. Antrobus decides to " burn everything but Shakespeare ' ' to save the human race. The second act is in Atlantic City just befrre the Big Flood. The Antrob us family is vacationing after Mr. Antrobus had been elected to the presidency. This holiday is interrupted by the end of the world. The third act takes place after the last World war. The play ends on a happy note, with all the Antrobus family tcgether cleaning up the world after the war. Mr. Wilder wrote the play with intentional mistakes such as scenery moving and characters forgetting their lines. Because of this the stage manager is on stage a great deal of the time helping the characters with their difficulties and explaining things to the audience. The play was ably directed by Robert Hires and much credit goes to him for making the play such a great success. Twenty-Six
