M-D's deans and counselors are a busy four. No small task is theirs, but they cheerfully and expertly undertake tt. Tactfully side-stepping
pleas for a particular lunch period or class are Mtss Ruth Foreman, Miss Clytis Cummens, Mr. Robert Manntng, and Mr, Glenn Grout, who calmly
and competently go about the task of guiding some 1700 students.

Your Kitten Koop is like an oasis to you, the hungry
student. Whether it's for ice cream, hamburgers,
or turnovers, if your desire is to satisfy the inner
man, this is the place for you. Under the super-
vision of Ma Park, who has presided over this
domain for thirteen years, the Kitten Koop means
food, gay talk, and occasional friendly guidance
from Ma. ln the picture with Ma Park are Mesdames
Mary Vondrak and Della Stamatis.
Battling against a dishwasher which breaks down
frequently, cold water when they want hot, and
other almost insurmountable odds, these ladies are
still able to provide you with tasty, nourishing food.
Although their duties are rather routine, your cafe-
teria workers are able to combine pleasure with
their chores. Whether you want a thick, soul-satis-
fying malt at the Ugopher hole," cookies and milk
at snack time, or a full-course plate lunch, you will
find your MAD cafeteria workers friendly and ef-

Your attendance office is very important in the busi-

where the attendance office staff members listen

toward none and charity for all.

Congratulations, seniors! As freshmen you gazed in awe
at the seniors with their class rings, as sophomores you
were thinking about becoming upperclassmen and look-
ing forward to your Junior-Senior Prom, and as iuniors
you were dreaming of becoming Monarcs and Madquins.
Now you have scaled the Senior Wall and are ready
to go on to new heights of achievement, and as you look
back on your senior year with its football games, its
Senior Mixer, your last prom and dances, your senior
assembly, and your graduation, you may be proud of
your senior year.

Looking forward to becoming upperclassmen, feeling
superior to the "lowly" freshmen, dreaming of next
years prom, and thinking about when you too can
select your class rings - all this made your sopho-
more year interesting. Although you seemed to be in the
middle, over the excitement of being freshmen, but not
quite upperclassmen, you have made this an active and
memorable year for your sophomore class.

Guilty! With this word come demerits for the
hapless student who is the holder ofa blue slip
issued to him by a commissioner. Lavvbreakers
are iustly tried by your three justices or if the
culprits prefer, by a jury of students. The latter's
verdict of guilty, however, carries ci more severe
penalty. At all times proceedings of this court
must be dignified and orderly. While the court
is trying cases and issuing demerits, it is perform-

Under the competent direction of Mrs. Thelma
Yenney and Mr. Max Cramer, the Stunt Commis-
sion is responsible for the many spectacular
half-time performances you have all enioyed at
M-Ds football games. The Commission, which
exists only during football season, met every
Wednesday and planned the clever stunts that
were performed by the Band and Pep Cats.
The Pep Commission, headed by vivacious Judy
Coleman, has had another busy year promoting
traditional Wildcat spirit. Every Tuesday night
the members attended meetings where they
spent tedious hours preparing the stunts for
M-D's unique card section. Clever Judy was also
responsible for making the gay green and white
pompons, which added even more color .and
spirit to the football games.

worse than old ladies. Jim has also been faced
with the impossibility of keeping the ushers

Martin. The men in her lite were Terry Harney as Bert Parsons,
Robert Swartz as Stewart Miller, and Paul Dittley as Brian Stanley.
Last years award-winning actress, Frances Petit, appeared in
this play as Mrs. Miller, mother ot Stewart Miller. Being light

M.D.'s mummers presented their tournament play, Rachel
Field's "Three Pills in a Bottle," at the Pasadena Play-
house on March 22. Fantasy, gaiety and sadness com-
bined to set the mood of the play. Tana, the wistful
little girl who from her window greeted busy passersby,
was played by Julie Melton. Widow Sims, her mother,
was ably portrayed by Frances Petit. Charles Phifer
acted the part ot a pompous, wealthy gentleman, Bob
Swartz was his ragged, care-worn soul. A tolling scis-
sors grinder was portrayed by Paul Ditfley, and his
dashing, troubadour soul by Barry Martin. A contrast
to the bent, kindly scrubwoman, played by Fern Petit,
was her dancing, star-dust adorned soul, played bv Ann
Austin. Behind the scenes were Miss Amie Gilbert,
drama director, Donna McFadden and Roxie Hubinger
student directors, and many others who worked to make
this year's entry a clever production.

Have you ever wondered what goes on in THAT room during sixth period? Miss Kathryn Geddes, Monrovian

Fred Couchman, photographer, snapped many of the prize pictures for you, including those king-size division
page pictures. Gayle Dominis' skill put your organization section together. Kent Herkenrath edited the sports
section extraordinary, assisted by George Winchell, who also had the tough chore of keeping the "Bestest" results
secret. Carolyn Stinson combined her journalistic and diplomatic talents to compile the faculty pages. Diane
Lawson, Martina Miller, and Leroy Harkless made up the trio of scissors-snippers, Leroy to clip snaps for his
pride and ioy, the senior pages, Martina and Diane to sever choice items for the "morgue" and pictures for
the snap section. You may credit Jan Saxton for many of the Monrovian's original layouts and for special
work on the student leaders section. Here and there throughout the book you will find Barbara Rivera's clever
touch, especially in the features section and in the art work. Pat Saylor covered such exciting events as G.A.A.
Play Day to fill the girls' sports section. Howard Kuhnert flashed both contracts and smiles at Monrovia,
Arcadia and Duarte merchants as he sold space for the advertising section. The hectic work went on-and
on-and on, sixth periods, after school hours, weekends, holidays-
And now it's over.
There aren't any more deadlines to meet, dummies to plan, pictures to take, or advertisements to sell. The ten-
sions, worries, and crises are things of the past. But so are the excitement, the satisfactions, and the glory of
creating your T955 Monrovian.

this to say of the '54 Varsity football team: "These kids played good,
hard, clean football. Win or lose, they were members of one of the finest
groups of boys we have ever coached. We considered it a privilege to
belong to such an outstanding team-one of the gamest ever to repre-
combined with little depth and even less weight, put
Lack ot experience,
two strikes against your Wildcats. Injuries and colds did their best to
add the third strike. Still, the team won two games and lost two by one
point two by one touchdown, and three by two touchdowns. Its not
whether a team wins or loses that's important, but how the boys play
the game. Your Wildcats of '54 comprised one of the gamest teams
ever to represent M-D!

Few onlookers realize the time, energy, and unyielding stamina
involved in forming a successful cross country team. Your Mara-
thoners of '54 trained long and vigorously to attain their high
position in Pacific League standings. The team lacked depth,
but made up for it by the fine running of Seymour Jordan, Jerry
Sullivan, David Roberts, and Jesse Oaties, captain ofthe harriers.
All of these boys ran the mile and seven-tenths course in under
ten minutes, a record seldom equalled by their competitors.

For three straight years-cu total of 24 track meets-your
varsity thinclads have remained undefeated in league
competition. Few schools in the Southland can beat that
record. But it would be even more difficult to match the
'Cats' Tremendous reputation. Everywhere the spikesters
compete they receive the full respect of their opponents.
This admiration is due to the fact that the M-D cinder-
men never allow their abilities to outweight their sports-
manship and spirit. That's the greatest accomplishment
of any team. Congratulations to Coaches Verl Murray
and "Dink" Walker for instilling the right attitude into
their championship squad.

Our Bee trackmen, the perennial league threats, are again the team to beat for the
league crown. The Kittens have already defeated Rosemead, the favorites to win
the championship, in a real thriller. The relay was the decider ofthe meet, as M-D's
Ranney Draper nosed out the Panthers' speedster, Barnett, for the important victory.
Other Bee cinolermen who have been giving sterling performances are Leon Perry
in the hurdles, Lewis Johnston in the broad jump, and Qeor e Vllipchell in thejrhot.

Boasting CIF material in several events, this year's Cee
trackmen are going to be tough to beat. Ray Reyes has
been turning in terrific performances in the CEE 660. Reyes
is a solid favorite to place in the CIF finals. James Mikell
will be counted on to go all the way in his specialty, the
l8O-yard dash. Coaches Murray and Walker have been
doing a great job in forming these beginners into possible
future Olympic stars of 1964.

A hustling group of horsehiders are representing your varsity basebal
team this year. At press time, they hcive lost only one league tilt-and
that one loss to a power-laden Whittier nine. We are hoping experience
and hard play will find the Katichmen near the top in league standings.
Setting the pace for the 'Cat baseballers are Ross Shade, Jimmy Pur-
baugh, and Dick Jones. Shade leads the team in batting with a .375
average. Purbaugh is hitting .333 at the plate and has saved the day
more than once with his fine defense play at second base. Jones, ci

tently shooting in the low 80's.

Play Day with its nautical theme was THE day for sports-minded
M-D girls. Weeks before the big event, G.A.A., Circle M. and
gym class members could be seen absorbed in such tasks as
snipping strips of crepe paper, designing fish of assorted shapes
and sizes, taping pieces of paper together, and artistically drap-
ing fish nets to lend that salty atmosphere. The morning of the big
day found girls still flying around tacking signs and numbers
on game courts, decorating tables, and making further prepara-
tions to greet their five hundred guests from Baldwin Park, Whit-
tier and Montebello. The visitors were welcomed aboard the
USS Monrovian by Circle M members, dressed as sailors to carry
out the nautical theme. The formality of registration was followed
by a gay, colorful assembly, which featured two-legged fish,
modeling the latest in wearing apparel for denizens of the deep.
Beverly Gaebel, dancing a sailor's hornpipe, and Alma Cureton,
portraying Miss Seaweed of 1954.
Competition was keen in the games that followed. The "Squids,"
"Shrimps," and other teams played basketball, volleyball, ten-
nis, badminton, and ping-pong. With such activity, no wonder
everyone had developed a terrific appetite when refreshment
time rolled around! The hungry gymnasts entered the gym to
find the walls gaily decorated with comical fish, nets, and multi-
colored crepe paper streamers suspended from baskets and
balconies. While impatiently waiting for refreshments, thelglrls
gave their school yells and songs, each trying to outdo the
other. Since the M-D girls were hostesses, they politely stood
aside to let the ravaging 'hordes decrease the food supply. "No
more!" were the words that greeted the hostesses when they
finally reached the refreshment table. Despite this disheartening
experience, they waved a friendly goodbye to their guests and
turned to the task of cleaning up.
Thanks to the teachers and students who worked so hard Gnd
gave up so much time, Play Day this year was the biggest and
