September 6, 1949, the doors of MTHS opened to welcome the class of '53,
We were all totaled, forty-five scared Freshmen. Later in the month we were
initiated and found it wasn't so terrible, but instead, a lot of fun.
Officers for our first year were: Sylvia Neuman, president, Pat Schneider,
vice-president, Martha Ringness, secretary-treasurer. Student Council
representatives were .Tames Steider and Mary Anna Mahoney. Miss Helton and
Mr. Lewis were our advisors.
We had a theatre party that year in Peoria where we saw "Father was a

As Sophomores in 1950 our class had increased to forty-nine members.
We elected James Steider, president, Martha Ringness, vice-president, .Tames
Welte, secretary-treasurer, Pat Schneider and Gordon Hall, Student Council
representatives. Class advisors were Mr. Laitas and Mr. Etaugh.
The events sponsored by us during the year were freshman initiation, a
bake sale, a theatre party, and a skating party.
1951-52 saw us as juniors. Officers were: Georgia Doak, presidentg Peg
Schneider, vice-president, Coletta Grebner, secretary-treasurer. Student Council
representatives were Jim Welte, Ronald Bader, and Pat Schneider, Mr. Laitas,
Mr. Etaugh, and Miss Tellaro were advisors. Later in the semester we had the
thrill of picking our class rings.
On April 3-4, we proved our dramatic abilities in the "Perils of Prudy," our
class play. We climaxed the year by giving the annual .Tunior-Senior banquet and
Our Senior year, 1953, opened with the following officers: Pat Schneider,

Queen and her Court included Pat and Peg Schneider, .Toanne We lte, and Sylvia
On November 20-21, we gave Louisa Mae Alcott's "Little Women" as our class
play. We chose as our motto, "He profits most who serves best," Red and Silver
as our class colors, and the Red Rose as our flower.
Senior night and the class trip were held in May. Baccalaureate was May 24,
and Commencement, ending our four years at MTHS, wa! on May 29. We leave
behind us many fond memories, but are looking to the future.
