Congratulations! Members of the 1958 Class of Montpelier-Harrison Township High School. Even
though I have only known you through your senior year, it has been a pleasure.
Your past twelve years should have given you the necessary fundamentals of education. You have
developed certain skills and mastered some of the principals of worthy living and worthy citizenship. We
do more than wish you well. Great are our expectations as you move forward to ever new and widening
The field of success is not crowded. To get to the top you must first get to the bottom of things. A
great sense of humor will help, and is a natural born twin to a great sense of faith.
So Seniors, grab a handful of rainbows today, and even when trouble, despair, and disappointment
knock on your door, be like the teakettle - even when you are up to your neck in hot water - go ahead,
sing. If you ever do get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
If at any time in the future your school
r and I can be of service to you, do not hesi-
' ' 'I tale to give us the opportunity of that service
' The best of success to all of you is my

The Ra Von Dramatic Club is the oldest club in school. It was organized in 1925, under the sponsorship
of Miss Margaret George. At this same time, the L, E, Kelley Building was being built, The club has had
three sponsors other than Miss Nelson and Miss Albertson, who were Miss George, Miss Taylor, and Mrs.
Kershner, This club, through the years, has tried to promote better speech, furnish dramatic training,
and to present plays for school entertainment,
A limitation of thirty members is rigidly held to by the club. All those wishing to join must have
"try-outs" before they are accepted. At the first meeting of every year, the sponsors read the Ra Von
constitution and the by-laws ofthe club. One very nice part of the year's program is the traditional
Christmas party. A second party is given in honor of the graduating Seniors in the group.
The faculty members and students of Montpelier High School are very proud of the Ra Von Club,
its membersg and its traditions, We hope that it will keep its good standing and reputation for many

With this, the 34th Edition to come off of the
press, has come the intention of the Indianan staff
to put out the finest annual Montpelier seniors have
ever presented to the students. It is the largest an-
nual that has ever been published, excluding the
counting of advertising pages. The annual staff has
worked with the student body in mindg therefore, the
pictures and articles are of special interest to every-
one. Under the leadership of Mt. Coppock, new and
clever ideas have been formed. The new advances
in publishing methods used to print this book help to
make the annual more attractive and interesting, as
well as making the pictures clearer, This year the
Indianan staff joined the National Scholastic Press
Association. This organization will at the end of
the year compare the staff's work with those of
other annuals all over the United States and will
rate their accomplishments.

The city has a population of 36,000. It is near
the industrial section of Germany where coal and steel
are processed. lt is in a hilly and thickly forrested
area. The people work mainly in iron and steel fac-
tories but there is a linen factory in the city. The
teenagers have a nice, big, swimming pool to use in
the summer, and the hills provide great bobsledding
in the winter.

The play was based on the unusual activities
and circumstances three girls encounter in a big
city. The story is centered around the closet in
the apartment shared by the young ladies. The
closet was the scene of many mysterious and hi-
larious sounds and happenings. The landlady's
strict desire to run a reputable rooming house
closes her eyes to the activities carried on in her
apartments by a counterfeiting ring. The boy
friends of the young ladies learn of the counter-
feiters thus exposing the "closet's secret. "

Under the leadership of three superintendents, the
school buildings and grounds have seen many improve-
ments. And since a school is no better than its equip-
ment, we should not forget the many purchases of mate-
rials and machines which the school has added to help
facilitate modern teaching methods. The houses on
Adams and Monroe are gone and in their place is the new
grade school play ground which was enlarged because of
the increase in enrollment. Also, needed was the new
grade building at the side of the high School.
Through the years, the yearbook has also seen many
changes. lt all began in 1903 when the Senior Class
published a school paper known as "The Rustle." It
was a paper-back edition containing no pictures. From
that time, until 1924, it was published five times a
year. In 1924, the first annual of M.H.S. was pub-
lished under the title of the "Blue and Gold." This
first annual was the stepping-stone for the annuals of
the future. It contained a few pictures scattered through-
out the book. It is interesting to note, also, that this
was the year the present L. E. Kelly building was built
and the first Ra Von Dramatics Club was organized. In
1929, the name of the annual was changed to the "In-
dianian." That annual, through the years, has seen
many imporvements, such as different type, more pic-
tures with less copy, colored borders and type and en-
graved covers. Up until 1957, the annual was printed
by an engraving process. Now in 1957 and 1958 a new
process is used - photolithography.
ln this, the " space age," the school shall continue
to change to keep pace with a rapidly changing world.
We know that the future generations to attend this be-
loved building shall hold high the honor, pride and
high-esteem of "good ole Montpelier."
The 1958 edition of the lndianian has been publish-
ed with but one objective: to capture a year in pic-
tures of student and faculty activities. We know that
many realities are far too intangible to be printed or
photographed, but perhaps we can bind together some of
the friendships which we all hold so dearly in the spirit
of this volume. If this book can retain some of the joys
and pleasures of the year just gone, it will have served

In May, 1957, another school year was ending and another Junior-Senior Prom was in progress. Prepara-
tions were begun early by the Junior Class to be sure that the Seniors would have a night to remember. The
Junior Class worked very hard and long to achieve the "Fairyland" atmosphere which carried out the " Cinder-
ella's Bal1" theme during the evening. The theme was carried out in the decorations of the band stand and
banquet tables whose centerpieces were made of flowers, candles and magic wands.
j Included on the menu for the banquet, which was served by
underclass girls, were "Magic Spell, Midnight Special, Fleecy
Af"V Clouds, Moonbeams, Fairy Ferns and Cinderella's Dreams. "
Following, the banquet speeches were made by Mr. Wilson, Miss
Rea and Miss Albertson. Mr. Davis was Master of Ceremonies.
Attention was then centered upon the Cy Clupper Band which
provided dancing music the remainder of the evening from a pump
kin-shell structure made of napkins stuck in wire mesh and sprayed
with orange paint.
Suspended from the center of the ceiling was a square clock
with the golden hands approaching the midnight. Star studded
streamers were draped from the clock to the outer sides where
they were let to dangle forming the walls.
Seated below are three "Cinderel1as" waiting for their
f '77 '
As the hands of the clock approached midnight, the Cinderellas and Princes prepared to
leave the dance and to proceed to the other festivities scheduled on the evening's program.
They attended a theatre party, enjoyed square and round dancing as well as a floor show at
the American Legion Hall, and were feted at a breakfast by the Kiwanis Club.

tgefukw his ,nlaiffecy In 1968 several fomier members of the Class of 1958 were being featured in the
annual Madison Square Garden Benefit Show in New York City. Since we were the
sponsors of that Senior Class, we decided to attend this event and unite with our for-
mer students once more. So bag and baggage we left for the big city.
As we entered the plane at Indianapolis, stewardess Kathy Chick, took our tick-
ets and seated us. The pilot,Charles Miles, reminded everyone to fasten his seat
belt. Our plane was soon skimming over the moutains, and before very long, we
had landed at La Guardia Airport in New York City. As we stepped from the plane,
we were met by reporters and bobby soxers who were waiting to see the great singer
Elvis Broccli, whom we all remember as Howard Brock. The taxi cab, which was
escorted by patrolman Joe Cale, was driven most efficiently by Don Schwarzkopf to
the Blue Blade Hotel,operated by Marie and Miriam Gillette. We were ushered
into the hotel by the doorman, Tom Armstrong. The hotel clerk, Dave Williams,
cordially welcomed us and rang for the bellboy, Dewayne Grove. After getting
settled in our rooms, we were served lunch by Bill Mattson and Don Williams.
While eating, we watched Bob Albertson on T. V. who had recently taken over the
former Bob Cummings Show.
We left the hotel to go to Madison Square Garden, and we met Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Van Camp, the former Judy Pugh, on their second honeymoon. Farther on down the
street we came across Randall Foy selling newspapers. On the way to the coliseum,
we decided to stop at the famous "Smith's Stork Club" owned and operated by Dell.
While we were waiting to be served our "Metchapll.ie Aflame" fprepared by the
famous chef Tom Nollerj, we were entertained by the club's pian.ist,Char1es Ever-
hart. Featured in the floor show were the Misses Sharon La Hudson, Judy De Hart
and Dena Led Bettier singing to the Cold Beer Music of Terry Forrester and his
"Fantastic Fanadcs." Leaving the club, we noticed Ann McCammon who had since
graduation changed her name to Mrs. Bruce Nestleroad, checking her wraps with
the hat check girl, Lois Allen. Once outside, we hailed a cab to take us to the
coliseum. While on our way we passed Ray Storms pushing his fruit cart, also en-
route to the coliseum. When we arrived there, we found , much to our surprise,
Gloria Futrell in the ticket booth. We were then ushered to our seats by Ray "Tex"
Love. Seated next to us were Mr. and'Mrs. Twible, the former Vikki Fitch, and
their six children. Presently the lights were turned down and the Master of Cere-
monies, David Waters, stepped into the spot light to introduce Peter Erne and Mari-
anne Gruenvogel with their world famous German flea circus, who presented a mag-
nificent act. The spot light was next turned up into the air to feature the fine
trapeze artists, Miss Nora Mae Glessner, and her partner, Dick Schwartzkopf, who re-

ceived a great round of applause for their daring feg. Next on the program was , 6lfWf,,u
Janet Bye and Jondajane Ford and their trained seals. They were followed by Charles .
Bales, the comical roller skating clown. We then saw Joe Parker and his assistant, E, b4!y'9'
June Smelser, step into the spotlight to demorstrate their juggling ability. The 5 s. gi I
final act was performed by Frances Merchant, Nila Michael, Esther Hawk and Nila ? I
Pitts, "The Four Star1ertes" on the high wire. E
The show was very successful and the newspaper critic, Charles Hartley, was
sure to give it a high rating. This trip proved to us that the CLASS OF 1958 had
proven very successful.

This year's Pacer team played very fine ball. Tney
were among the leaders in the Eastern Indiana Conference.
lt was a good defensive team as well as having fine shoot-
ing record. This year's team will be remembered for
their ability and sportsmanship.
CHARLES HARTLEY was Johnny-on-the-spot and al-
ways around to help. He is a senior, and it will be hard
to find someone to fill his shoes.
DICK BALES played his first year on the varsity.
Since he is a junior, he will be around another year for
the Pacers, Most of his action was on the second team.
DON SCHWARZKOPF was a regular for the Pacers,
and a leading scorer. Being a senior, he will be missed
greatly next year.
RODNEY BLACK didn't get to see much varsity
action this year because of a broken ankle. We
know he is looking forward to more time on the
floor next season.
COACH CARL HONAKER produced a winning
team again this year for 'Pelier. Montpelier is
looking forward to many more teams just like this
ED KERSHNER was high scoring man in many
gamesg we know he will give the visiting teams a
great many headaches next year, with his rebound
ing and his sharp shooting.
RANDALL FOY saw limited action, but when
called on he did his best in playing a good game
for the Pacers. He is a senior, and he, too, will
DEWAYNE GROVE, who missed part of the
season because of a very badly cut hand, be-
came noted for his rebounding ability and is re-
sponsible for many points and assists. It will be
difficult to fill his position at center in 58-59.

DICK SCHWARTZKOPF started out his second year
of varsity play slowly at first, but by mid -season had
won a regular place at forward, He has helped the
pacers out in many pinches with his shooting and re-
bounding ability and especially in the Adams Central
game in which he spared the team to victory.
BILL ROBBINS was one of our better defensive
players, He held many opposing high-scoring men
back, and scored quite a few points for himself. He
will be around next year to display his defensive
JERRY OVERMEYER helped the pacers quite a
bit this year. He is a sophomore and will be around
for two more years to help keep the team in top shape.
MIKE INMAN played his first year on the team.
He didn't see too much varsity activity but he played
very well on the second team.
STEVE SCHWARTZKOPF has completed his first
year on the team for the pacers. He has two more
years to trouble the opposition.
DAVE WILLIAMS was one of our tall men. He
helped the pacers in the tight spots with his sharp eye
from the corners.
ASSISTANT COACH MODLIN helped shape the
pacers into a winning team this year. We are looking
forward to his help for many years. He also was the
coach for the Freshman and Junior High teams.
TOM NOLLER completed his last year for the
pacers, He played as reserve for most of the season.
Mr. Honaker will be in need of another skilled guard
to replace Noller for next season.
Pop's Crossed the Great Divide
School man and family man
And friend to all was "Pop, "
He gave himself in service:
He knew not when to stop.
It will be lonely for us.
We'll miss "Pop's" smiling face,
For he's been with us so long
And always at his place.
But his work is finished here,
He's crossed the Great Divide.
Yes, "Pop" has been promoted.
He's on the other side.

The team had a very fine season this year, placin
first in the Southern division of the EIC and second in
EIC. We only lost one conference game all season, tl
was to Albany, 7 to 6. In the conference game again
Roll we played 10 innings and won by one run. In the
final game of the regular season we played Pennville
which was the best game of the season, with the team
making no errors. This game clenched the champion-
ship of the Southern division for us.
Our pitchers for this year were Don Schwarzkopf a
Harry Meyers. Don had four wins and no losses. His 1
spectacular game was a no hitter against Chester Cen
Harry had three wins and three losses. His best pitchir
feat was a 7 - 6 victory over Roll which went ten innir
