gets me up in the morning,
So that I can get to school
sees that I don't forget to wash,
And tells me to abide by the golden rule
helps me with my ha e work,
And a dozen little odds and ends
quarrels and very few arguments,
'Cause we're the very best of friends
And when I'm feelin' kinds low,
He takes notice and asks, what's it about
He's always there to lend a hand,
And in his own way, helps me out
I brag on him an awful lot,
It makes me feel oh, so glad
You knew him 'cause he's my Dad
Dear Mother with a tear in her eye,
Has seen these four years quickly fly
She's proud of her children, everyone,
Stood by them all, till they were done
Bother, no matter how young or old,
we still think you are made of gold
With a heart as big as you ever saw,
Yet we just think of you as 'ma '
You've helped us to get to sohool,
le, too, to abide by the golden rule
And you've dressed us, oh so neat,
Why Mother, you just ean't be beat
But really, 'Mom' we think you're tops,
And almost rank above our 'Pop'
we know many a sorrow hangs o'er your breast,
So to you, too, we dedicate The Crest
Why--he's the best friend I ever had,

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In the fateful year of l9h0, a very large class of Freshles

At first, as the tradition goes, we were very green, but soon we
became accustomed to high school life We elected Mr Schultz as
Class Advisor, Donald Walker, President, Howard Wilson, Vice

urer We sponsored a dance and a food sale, which along with our
dues, helped swell the treasury One of our members, Maryalioe
Coy was chosen cheerleader along with some upperclassmen and has
retained this position for the full four years we had many active
members in glee club and choir which was under the direction of
Mr Schultz We also had some very active members in athletics
We started our Sophomore year by losing some of our members
but not very many We elected Mr Flemlng as Class Advisor, John
Hillburg as President, Betty Rich as Vice President, Rosemary Gauer
as Secretary, Nadine Jenkins as Treasurer, and Alice Sloman as
Publicity Manager, and we proceeded to make our Sophomore year a
successful one We sponsored
a dance, hayride, a hamburger
our boys on the first five of
boys went out for basketball
M C H S from Taylorville and
several social events which included
fry, and a food sale We had one of
the basketball team Several other

the evening of April 2, 19h3 We sponsored, also a Halloween Party,
which was very hilarious and very profitable, and the traditional
Prom and Banquet for the departing Seniors At the end of the year,
Ie had a nice little sum of money in the treasury to start our Sen
The Senior year was started by giving a dance Our officers
elected for the year were as follows President, Kenneth Rosenthal,
Vice President, Betty Jo Howard, Secretary Treasurer, Lyle Harmon
In October we gave a very successful Carnival, at which we started
something new boxing matches, contestants taken from the Senior
Class Then along came December and the Senior play, 'It's Papa
Who Pays,' starring some talented members of our class The Sen
iors traveled to Springfield to have their pictures taken good
pictures too' Then came the biggest job we have yet undertaken
that of publishing a bigger, better annual than ever before We
hope you enjoyed it as much as we have enjoyed putting it together
Last but not least, our Senior picnic on May 26 ended a very happy
four years at M C H S

We are the class of forty four
Through these portals we'1l walk no more
Many memories we'll never forget
And very few hours of regret
Latin, math, we have taken,
History and science we haven't forsaken,
Allen, Bacon, Longfellow, and Poe
Those book reports were hours of woe
'Happy Landings' was a success,
'It's Papa Who Pays' was one of the best
The Senior Carnival was a lot of work
But such a success so why should we shirk9
Parties, Weiner roasts, and hayrides for some
Could we forget that Junior Prom?
Lest but not least, we published our Crest
We hope you like lt, cause we did our best
These four years have swiftly gone by
marched down the aisle to get our sheepskin
Then out the same doors that we came in
We hope you've liked us and ve hate to go
But success we seek, whnch we hooe isn't slow
Good luck and happiness to each of you
To all we bid fond adieu'
On the twenty-fifth with a tear in our eye,

to make M C H S proud of us in four years time

roll, band, and basketball this year Keith Long was
one of the cheerleaders The first month of school was
spent in learning each others names and electing our
President, Bob Brittln, Vice President, Jo Ann Furry,
Our freshmen boys' basketball team was under the
direction of a Senior, Dick Norris, and the boys playing
were Bob Brittin, Dale Frobish, Joseph Forrester,
Loren Bethard, Edmund Langen, Keith Long, Bernard Lucas,
and James Kessler
We were also represented in the band by the following
members Mary Rose Hall, Ralph Sloman, Jackie Brown,

is for contests, she is getting fed up with them too Edith, as Nadine
Jenkins, is a 'giggling Gerty' who is all the time 'spilling the beans
Virginia Smothers, as Grace Denny, plays the 'vamp of the camp' She
is Bab's aunt and O'BOY what an aunt The boys crowd around her like
nobodys' business What really gets Bab's coat is when a cousin
Ed1th's comes over to Bab's house with Edith Aunt Grace is there
and then the fireworks really start Babs really gives her Aunt the
cold shoulder Ed1th's cousin is a tall, dark, handsome man, whose
name is Wayne Carlton, played by Dick MacPherson, and Babs wants
him but Aunt Grace gets him for awhile

mlght win from contests already entered When he finds out that he
has won a oar in a dog biscuit contest prevlously entered, he doesn
know how to get out of it He wants the car but he doesn't want the
family to know how he got it This is where Uncle Lee, lChar1es Brittinl
comes in Fixer tells Papa to tell the family th t Uncle Lee had paid
an old debt which is 8500 After they tell the family that Uncle
Lee has sent 8500, Mother tells them that Uncle Lee, who has just
married, is coming to visit them Papa almost passes out
Uncle Lee arrives Cafter being chased through a pasture by a
bull! and Mother tells him that he really shouldn't have sent all
that money She tells him he needs the money because he is just
married He really had aimed to send some of the money, because he
had received exactly S500 for a poem that he had just published H
said he had sent some but he did not remember sending all of it
While all of this is going on, Papa is having some more trouble

editions appeared at different times during the year
Assistant Editor, Shirlen Rosenthal, then came the writers
of the feature articles whose items made up the body of
the paper A large part cf the success of the 'Mohawk'
was due to the two Business Managers, Pat Balsley and Bud
Beaman It was they who hounded the business men to death
for ads, and at a quarter an ad, we averaged over S2 per
publication in ads
It took all of the staff working and cooperating to
gather to achieve the success which we believe the paper
has had this year

I C H S BAND
The band is under the direction of Mr Schmidt who has con
sented to take over since we were unable to get an instructor in
music this year
le started with sixteen members consisting chiefly of clarinets
and saxaphone players The bend was very much in need of additional
players, especially in the brass section of our band When a call
was made for new members to join the band, twenty seven recruits
volunteered of which twenty three of the new members are now playing
in our thirty nine piece band
The band sponsored several activities this year for the purpose
of raising a fund to help defray the expanses of the additional capes
and the new visor type cap that was purchased by the band members
Some of the activities sponsored by the band for raising funds were
a movie, a paper drive, and a spring concert
We made several public appearances, among the first of these
being a Christmas program sponsored by the Business Men's Associa
tion and a concert played for the students of M C H S Among the
future activities that the band will appear in are the CMS Contest,
Spring Concert on May 5 and Decoration Day Parade
Three soloists from our bend who will compete at the CMS Con
test are Patty Balsley, Mary Louise Dunkirk, Merle Billiter, and
Helen Kerns, accompanist
The band this year is losing eight of their most valuable
players Seven of these were with the band since their first year
at M C H S We will certainly miss them and hope that our beginning
members can replace them in our next vear's band with as fine a per
The personnel of our thirty nine piece band is as follows
Clarinets Betty Rich, student director, Nadine Jenkins, Helen
Kerns, Margaret Hertle, Dorothy Meyer, Mary Louise Dunkirk,
