Loyalty we give as ever,
M -, To the Wlute and Blue.
But the glory of the Present is to make the Future free, --
We love our land for what she is and what she is to be.
Henry Van Dyke
The American Spirit of liberty, freedom, and progression has been and is
possessed by many citizens. This underlying strength in our society carries us
on to greater heights each day. The American Spirit is the 'foundation for many
of our small and large actions and for our capitalistic ideas- -from donating blood
to the Red Cross to marching as Civil Rights demonstrators to fighting in Viet
Spirit is constantly urging all people to progress to better their lives. Teach-
ing, competing in sports, participating in school groups and church activities
are all forms of bettering other people, ourselves and eventually our generation.
The world progresses and so must we.
Our American society and Way of life have many small intricacies overlooked
that really indicate the presence of Spirit in our everyday life. Giving blood
freely, contributing to charities, Working voluntarily in hospitals or political
campaigns, and helping someone change a flat tire are not prescribed by law or
tradition, people backed by American Spirit are not afraid, but are actually will-
ing, to help other people.
The Spirit of 1776 has been carried over throughout the years and is still
strongly exhibited as the Spirit of 1966. Our Spirit is based on freedom and there-
fore also perpetuates freedom. World Wars I and ll, the Korean Conflict and to-
day the war in Viet Nam were and are being fought by American citizens Who,
backed by Spirit, were given strength to fight for a principle.
To the American Spirit and the people who possess it, we dedicate the 1966

Mrs. VioletBible, school librarian, earned her B.S.
in Education from Bowling Green State University.
During the past summer Mrs. Bible completed two
courses in Library Science at B.G.S.U.
Each fall the new students at the high school, the
eighth grades, who until this time attended the
Elementary School, and the freshmen who attended
Superior, are instructed in the functions of the library
and in the uses of library materials. This year, for
the firsttime, the eighth graders attended the library
instruction classes during their regular English class
periods. For seven days they reported to the library
and acquired many useful library skills. The freshmen
came to the library during their study hall for one
week. This helped them to become acquainted with
the M.H.S. library.
This year the capacity of the library has been
enlarged to fifty students. They may study in the
library before school, at noon, and after school. The
library is also open for research during study halls.
A vertical file, containing newspaper clippings which
may be used as reference material, has also been
added. Several book cases have been added to
capacitate the increasing number of books. Currently
there are approximately forty-five hundred books
in the library.
Mr. Snyder reviews a list of the numerous colleges
throughout the United States.
Mrs. Bible files cards from a book which has just been
Students desiring to get information on colleges,
careers, trade schools, or business schools contact Mr.
Albert Snyder, guidance counselor. Mr. Snyder pro-
vides information concerning both high school and
it college tests, occupations, and proper study methods.
Mr. Snyder also administers standardized tests. He
aids students in selecting high school academic
subjects and advises each student on the type of
course he is best adapted to pursue. Mr. Snyder holds
a B.S. in Education from Defiance College and a
' M.E. degree in Guidance and Counseling from Bowling
Green State University. Mr. Snyder also teaches
eighth grade science and Ohio history.
Four courses--college prep, vocational, industrial
arts, and business--are offered at M.H.S. College
prep courses offer majors in academic, life science,
or technical subjects. Academic subjects are designed
for students who wish to go to college but who are
undecided about what field they wish to enter. Life
science subjects provide background for students who
maywish to be doctors, nurses, or scientists. Subjects
in the technical branch of college prep are designed
to prepare the students for the engineering field.
Vocational courses are offered to equip students who
desire to take agriculture or home economics
Industrial arts majors are available to any student.
Business courses in which clerical or secretarial
majors may be obtained are offered. Also there is a
general course designed for students who have no
definite academic plans, and who do not wish to go
to college. College handbooks, bulletins, and
occupational pamphlets are available in the guidance
office to any interested student.
Language is an important factor in the curriculum of-
fered at M.l-I.S. Mr.Chester Wasilowski, who received his
B.S. degree from Bowling Green State University, teaches
English III and two classes of English IV for those senior
students who wish to better prepare themselves for college.
Junior and senior college prep students were required to
submit an analysis of Herman Melvil1e's great classic,
MOBY DICK. They spent many frustrating hours on this
project which determined their six weeks grade . Interested
junior and senior college prep students were excused from
school one afternoon to see the filmed play OTHELLO at
the Bryan theater. All those who attended had to write a
summary ofthe play's action. Mr. Zon Shumway attended
the University of North Carolina, Western Michigan Uni-I
versity, the University of Michigan and obtained his A.B.l
degree from Ohio University. I-Ie teaches English II and
Latin I and II. In addition to their concentrated study of
grammar, the sophomore English classes read the plays
ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, INHERIT THE WIND, and JU-
LIUS CAESAR. Latin I students learned the fundamental
principles of translation and formation of Latin expres-
sions while those taking Latin II furthered their knowledge
of the language with new complex rules and translations
of Julius Caesar.
Mr Shumway assists his study hall students.
Mrs. Mary E. Haines teaches English I and girl's
physical education classes and acts as advisor to a
number of organizations. HerFreshman English classes
read Charles Dickens' GREAT EXPECTATIONS. Mrs.
Haines attended Ohio State University and graduated

sity. Mrs.Dorothy Gardner teaches eighth grade Eng-
lish, public speaking, and French. One of the projects
of the eighth grade English classes was the play, A
MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY, which they presented
for the American Legion. Records and tapes aid the
French students in developing correct pronunciation
Understanding is the goal of communication. Pub-
lic speaking students quickly learn the power of the
spoken word. They practice speaking in informal
groups and such formal groups as club meetings, dis-
cussions, and debates. One of the most interesting
phases of speech study was oral interpretation fread-
ing aloudj. The students must re -create for the lis-
tener the thoughts and feelings of the writer.
Mrs. Gardner attended the University of Michigan
and Ohio University and obtained her B.A. Degree
from Michigan State University.
Mrs. Gardner explains thoroughly the different cases of French words.

government, the functions of these
branches, and the role of the U.S. gov-
ernment in World affairs. World history

year some of the drawings by the Drawing
I and Drawing II students are exhibited
during the spring open house. The
advanced drawing students each year draw
the complete plans for some item they have
chosen. The item must be disassembled
and every part must be measured. The
student then draws each part of the item
separately. Finally, the item is drawn
completely assembled. Some projects in
recent years have been a spray nozzle, a
clutch, and a drill chuck.
Mr. Merillat, mechanical drawing instructor, answers questions.
Vocational agriculture enables boys
interested in farming to expand in all
aspects of this field. Discussion periods
rise from the introduction of various
modern farming machinery and farming
methods. Vocational agriculture boys
repair all types of farm machinery and
have built trailers themselves. In addition
to academic work, the boys lime the
track, mow the football field, gather
timber for the Snake Dance victory fire,
and set up tables and chairs for school
events such as banquets and dances .
Included in the many areas of judging
taught in vocational agriculture is land
judging. Students learn to look at the
soil and general topography to judge its
capabilities--erosion, drainage, and
usage. Montpelier placed second in
District I land judging this fall. District

onal integrity, growing leadership, and expanding service
o school and community. Shortly after the opening of the
econd semester, the student body assembled in the audito-
ium to watch the old members tap new member. On March

The STUDENT COUNCIL of Montpelier High School
represents the students in the school and the community. The
Council works as a liaisen between the school ffaculty and
administrationj and the students. Improvement of the physical
appearance of the school grounds, participation in the WBNO
radio broadcasts, and promotion of the school image con-
stitute a few of the Council projects. The most important
function of the Student Council is to receive or propose
changes which will benefit the school. This year each Council

afternoon announcements over the P.A. system.

"Mother is a Freshman," directed by Mrs. Mary
Haines, was presented on November 19 and 20.
PointerCollegeserved as the setting for the play.
Abigail Abbott, a young and attractive widow,
availed herself of the scholarship endowed by an
alumna named Abigail Fortitude. In fact, the
scholarship was great enough to permit mother
Abigail and daughter Susan to attend college.
Complications set in with Susan a sophomore and
mother a freshman. Susan was afraid her mother
would hamper her romantic activities with Pro-
fessor Michaels. Abigail had others who resented
her entering college.Among them was Dean Gil-
lingham who deemed the entry a publicity stunt.
The students' desires prevailed and Abby became
a student. The students in zoology class began to
notice the attention Professor Michaels paid to
Abby. Susan heard about this and became very
angry. But through a series of hilarious errors,
Professor Michaels and Abby realized that they
loved each other, and Susan realized she liked
the "campus big shot" Bobo better than she did
Professor Michaels. Even Dean Gillingham ac-
cepted Abby's presence and said that she might
as well call him Cillie as everyone else did.
"Mrs. Abbott signed in on time every night--
hardly ever goes out. Never seen her smoking.
The girls all like her," Mrs. Miller assures Dean
As a token of appreciation, Student Director James Thomp-
son presented to Mrs. Haines a dozen yellow roses.

The highlight of the G.A.A. Christmas
Program was the play, "Aunt Carrie's Christ-
mas Carroll." The following story elapsed.
While their father was away on a business
trip, Jill and Josephine Halbrook were sent
to spend Christmas with their late mother's
sister, Aunt Carrie Patterson. This was their
yearly duty--one which they dreaded be-
cause Aunt Carrie was an embittered, man-
hating, old maid. Of all the holidays, Aunt
Carrie hated Christmas most. Mrs. Under-
wood, a neighbor, explained Aunt Carries'
attitude when she called to bring news of the
return of Ezra Carroll, Aunt Carries suitor
twentyyears ago. Ezra, who still loved Car-
rie, had returned to clear up past misunder-
standings. Smelling a new romance, the girls
arranged for Aunt Carrie to listen to Ezra
much against her will. Finally calmed, she
learned that another sister of hers, dead for
many years, was jealous of Ezra's affections
for Carrie, and she sent him away with a
false message that Carrie and he were
through.After Ezra and Carrie cleared up the
long misunderstanding, Carrie changed her
whole outlook on life. Everyone prepared for
the happiest Christmas celebration ever.

and Coach Krouse, both of the class of

applied an expression made famous by
Winston Churchill, "Success is never
final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that
counts." Mr. Winzeler cited examples of how
men like Vic Janowicz and Jesse Owens achieved
success only to have their lives change and their
success fade away. These same men, however,
realizing that failure is never fatal, regained their
stature and renewed their lives through deter-
mination. This determination or courage to
which Mr. Winzeler referred " . . . is not just
the kind you need to face an opponent on the
field, or fightawar in Viet Nam. lt is more than
that. It is the kind of courage it takes to respect
your parents, or not be a high school drinker, or
not race your father's car, or read a book in-
stead of watching T.V., or do well on your school

In the spring of '65, the student body elected the varsit
cheerleaders for the following year. The cheerleaders spon
sored a dance during the football season to pay for their uni
forms. In the fall, they helped with the election of the re
serve cheerleaders. At each game during the football seasor
the cheerleaders, with the aid of the band, formed a funne
through which the boys ran onto the field. At the I-lomecomin
game the Varsity cheerleaders and the majorettes combine
to performa half-time routine. For the basketball season, th
cheerleaders made ahoop for the varsity team to break throug
at each home game. Besides cheering at the games, leadin
the pep sessions, and making posters and banners, both varsit
and reserve cheerleading squads attended Cheer Clinic 2
At the end ofthe year, the Jr. High Cheerleaders were give
miniature M's while the Freshmen received megaphone em
blems. The reserve squad received reserve M's. For their cor
tribution to school and team spirit, the varsity cheerleade
became members of the "M" Club and received varsity M
at the end of the year. Mrs. Haines acted as advisor for the re
serve and varsity cheerleading squads. 1

During his second year with Montpelier Coach
Hobie Krouse guided the Locos through a somewhat
unimpressive season of one win and eight losses . The
beginning of the '65 season saw many new faces on
the gridiron, some of whom were destined to see
much action during the regular season. The not -too-
good 1-8 record was not a true reflection of the
team's abili-ty, The Locos were always a worthy op-
ponent and the game was never over in their minds
until the final gun went off. Even though the Locos
fell short of their goal to raise Montpelier's football
standard, we gained a world of experience in team-
work and sportsmanship. For the Seniors there is
only the memory of a long and hard-fought season,
but for the juniors and all the other underclassmen
there is the chance for a more successful season
next year. We, the Seniors wish them and Coach
Krouse the best of luck.
M.H.S. Football Honors were select this year.
Those players chosen to be on the All N,W.O.A .L .

Although their record doesn t show it, the 66 Basketball Team put
forth some very outstanding performances during the regular season.
One accomplishment that stands out was gaining second place in the
Holiday Tournament after a previous losing streak. During the season
the loss of Senior Ron Lester did affect the potential of the team, but
oncoming Junior Richard Kreischer, who had been absent at the be-
ginning of the season, adequately filled the spot.
The absence of five graduating Seniors will have some affect on
the '67 varsity. However, up and coming Sophomores Richard Miller,
Bob Kunkle and John Storrer will undoubtedly put forth fine efforts as 1
will Juniors Mike Firestone and Bruce Lung.
The team members found that there is more to the game than
merely putting the ball through the hoop. They found that a little extra
effort when the chips were down was vital to the game. Also the mean-
ing of 10070 team effort was discovered and displayed.
The Seniors wish all oncoming team members the best of luck in
years to come.
Upon looking back at the season, the fine coaching ability of Mr.
Tom Waters comes to life. When the boys were down he was there to
boast their moral. He has helped the team a great deal and each boy
will remember him for his efforts.
