We all had to struggle and it was sometimes hard, But our school day memories will never be marred With the unpleasant things of these trying years. Instead, we leave with our eyes full of tears, Remembering the good times we have had: It's things like that, which make it so sad. As freshies we were afraid we would do something wrong But we made out okay and it wasn't too long Till we were sophomores, then the fun began. One would often hear "I've learned all I can". Yes, we thought we had learned all there was to know. But as Juniors we found that, that wasn't so. At last we are Seniors and happy to state That our high school success was no outcome of fate. The teachers were patient and pushed us along, They helped us out when they knew we were wrong. We are going to miss those noisy halls, All the cheerful voices and friendly calls. Our class. wasn't perfect but I think you'll agree, It was certainly one of the best, By Gee ! Joan Engelhart 17 Seniors - 1950 In September of '46,thirty-nine freshies came rushing into M.H.S. to begin their career as high school students. Officers were chosen, these being the results: Marian Smith, president, Bill Nicol, vice- president, Bob Fleming, secretary-treasurerg and Mr. Schmidt, advisor. As freshies we held our own in basketball, band, and club membership. Frances Smothers was chosen cheerleader from ouriclass. In '47 we again returnedto plague our teachers. Mr. Hendricks was chosen as advisor with Bob Clower, president, Lester Curvey, vice- presidentg and .Toan Engelhart, secretary-treasurer. Attendance this year dropped to thirty-eight. Bob Clower and Marian Smith helped lead our cheers. In-basket-ball tournaments both sophomore boys and girls placed first. ' With the start of the '48 and '49 school term, forty-six Hjollyjuniors joined the throng at M. H. S. Bill Spengler, president, Iuanita.Davidson, vice-president, and Bob Fleming, secretary-treasurer were chosen to guide our class with the help of Miss Hewitt. Among accomplishments this year were the publishing of the MOHAWK, production of the play, "Shiny Nose", sponsoring of the 1949 Prom, and supporting of many activities. Then came the crowning glory, at last we were "sophisticated seniors". Our class had greatlydecreased,this year dropping to thirty- eight. The powers of offices were vested in Amos Johnson, presidentg Lester Curvey, vice-president, and Marian Smith, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Robinson and Miss Sleevar did a wonderful job as class advisors. We had a fair share of boys on the basket ball team as you can see by other pages of the CREST. Cheerleaders from the senior class included Norma .Tones and Marian Smith. Class pictures were taken October IZ at Burchetts' Studio in Springfield. They turned out remarkable well as you'll see by our pic- tures. We're very proud of our work on the CREST and we hope you'll enjoy browsing through our annual as much as we enjoyed making it for you. Another of our accomplishments was the senior playpresented this spring, with a cast of seniors with acting ability. Thus ends the best years of our lives - those spent at M. H. S. Marian Smith 18 ii Senior Will Article I We, the senior class of Morrisonville High in the year of 1950, being of questionable mind and memory, do hereby make, declare, and set our seal to this our will.

Senior Prophecy Upon completion of four years at M. H. S.the class of 1950 decided to have a reunion every decade and so we find the class assembled at the dedication of a community park which AMOS JOHNSON, that wealthy bachelor, donated to the community of Morrisonville. Amos greeted all friends and we notice that most of the seniors have attended this dedication. By the way, Amos owns a farm and has enlarged it into a million dollar enterprise. The vice-president of the senior class,LESTER CURVEY, arrived next. The grapevine tells us that he is now taking the place of such not- ables as Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey. Lester is married and lives in a home in Beverly Hills. He and his wife invited all the class of '50 to his home for our next reunion. ZZ Q Senior Prophecy Speaking of horses, we just now saw MARIAN SMITH, breathless and bright eyed, ride in on one of her beautiful roans. It seems she's never been happier. Why? Because out near the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, Marian, her husband, and three children run a vacationland and horse ranch. What's that roar overhead? Oh, of course,that's LOR EN ARKE- BAUER flying in his jet plane. Loren traded in his little car for the plane and is a tester for the new planes coming out. He makes his home in Washington since much of his work is official business. IONE MUNDHENKE was the next arrival, looking very charming in her new twirler's outfit. She tells us that she is now one of the main features at the Skating Vanities show. lone decided to combine her twirl- ing ability with another asset. After much thought she decided on skating and hence her career. The former RAMONA BILYEU and her daughter were the next guests to make appearance. She is still a charmingly dressed woman. She still resides near Morrisonville on a farm. It is not necessary to mentionher husband's name as we all know where her interests lie. PAULINE McLEAN'S arrival caused quite a bit of e xc item e nt . Rumor has it that Pauline is one of the famous Powers models. But,of course, she was bound to use her beauty to an advantage. M.H.S. saw a great future for her when they chose her prom queen back in 1949. We notice another class mate of M.H.S. arriving. ROSIE SKINNER was one of the first to arrive since she resides in Palmer. She runs a grocery store in Palmer which is a favorite shopping center of the house wives of the community. A taxi cab is now pulling into the park and from it emerges ROY BACON. Roy tells us he is an expert on F. D. R. and can tell you much of his life. Whose new cadillac is that now arriving? His face looks familiar. Yes, that's EARL MCKINNEY now arriving. Earl looks like a successful farmer he is s aid to be. Earl has developed a new corn planter which accounts for the cadillac. There are many more visits to be made so we must move on. GLENN MYERS and his wife greeted us heartily. A glance at the couple will tell how happy they are. Glenn now runs a filling station which was known as the Frobish Standard Station. The business is now greatly enlarged which is proven by Glenn's beautiful country estate. Z3 Senior Prophecy MELVIN RICH came rushing up to say hello. It seems that Melvin now plays with a very famous name band. Some of the new songs were written by Melvin. You've heard "Pour on the perfume whe n you take off your shoes if you forgot to wash or you'll get the blues", haven't you? That's Melvin's creation. If you've been wondering whose orchestra Melvin is playing in, our next conversation will tell you. BOB CLOWER'S orchestra is the famous organization Melvin plays with. Fortunately their next appearance is to be at the Lake Club in Springfield so Bob and Melvin were able to attend the reunion. Mr. and Mrs. JIM DONALDSON arrived next. Jim r un s the best farm in Illinois. They live on a lo vely farm just south of Springfield. Gloria has a beauty parlor installed in her home and gives the neigh- boring womena great boost when she fixes their hair. We notice a sweet income tax deduction playing in the park and Gloria tells us of his cute actions. MISS SLEEVAR was the next guest to appear. She tells us s he is no longer employed at M.H.S., but gave up that job to accept a position as accountant for the Standard Oil Company. We hear that the president of the company ke ep s in personal touch with her. What an interesting development ! There's DWIGHT EBE coming around the bend in the road. When we inquired about his position he told us he had taken over his father's business and has extended the route. Dwight still is driving a little red ford and his favorite companion is still Marjorie. ' Here is another of the old class. EDDIE JONES has just arrived midst a group of squealing bobby soxers. There's no ne e d to tell you thathe is now vying for a place among such singers as Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. We notice another expert in our midst. JAMES STANLEY has just driven up. Remember those bookkeeping classes? Well, future students will not have to study quite so hard now for James has developed a simp- lified bookkeeping system and has revolutionized all books. CHARLES JOHNSON is the next guest greeted by Amos. Amos tells us that Charles is now living in Washington and is Secretary of Agricul- ture. Charles' outstanding wo rk in agriculture m us t have acted as a recommendation for that position. There's DON RATHGEBER. He must have engaged someone to look after his music shop in Chicago. The work in the Morrisonville band so impressed him that he took his clarinet and started a small shop which has grown to a large enterprise. Z4 Senior Prophecy BILL SPENGLER is still the s ame person he was back at M.H.S. He is now c hie f chemist of the Department of National Defense. Must be a smart man. He tried to explain his theories to us, but we're just not scientifically minded. One of our greatest surprises came when we learned J'IM SWINGER has be c ome a Professor of Psychology and is now studying the age of trials, or adolesence. He is working on a book so teachers may under- stand their students. Before one of our guests has to be called away for an emergency, we had better visit DR, FLEMING. Bob tells us he is happily married and has a growing practice in Morrisonville. Our next visit was with DICK BAILS. We notice he is all dressed up and on inquiry we learn he owns an enormous transit truck line. Dick must have amassed a fortune in his business. Another success from the class of '50. Are you puny? Do men make fun of you? If so. see .TACK SLOAN. For development of muscles nothing can beat the gymnasium which Jack sponsors. Even, Charles Atla s finally had to bow to the new expert on muscle development. BARBARA HILL was the next guest whom we spoke to. Barbara is now the famous designer of women's clothes. She runs an exclusive dress shop in New York. A famous designer in Paris has been urging Barbara to come abroad, but Barbara hasn't made up her mind to go yet. Meeting MRS. ROBINSON, we discover she still lives in Morrison- ville and is now working on a proposal to get anew library in Morrison- ville. Her main interest is her son, Paul, who has grown into a young man who speaks Latin fluently. Here comes one of the most famous atto rneys of the century. WILLIAM SMITH has become the youngest lawyer to be appointed to the Supreme Court. He won many cases when he was in private practice and his diplomacy and tact proved great enough to put him into a national lime light. l . We notice one of the guests is using the lanes for spring training. BILL NICOL had to return from spring training grounds with the Card- inals' to be at the reunion. The manager of the Cardinals tells us that Bill should go far in the baseball world. .TOYCE REYNOLDS came rushing up to greet us. .Toyce is happily married and lives on afarm east ofMorrisonville. She has several child- ren and is proud of every one of them. Stewarts' Market miss her, but she says sacking groceries can't compare with married life. 2.5 Senior Prophecy Hot-shotCAROLYN CURVEY was the next personto enter the gates of Milady Park. Carolyn now has her own girls' basketball team which is doing very well. Their next topponets will be in New York when they meet the Charming Five. The Charming Five is another girls' team. This team is managed by our old friend RAY DOWDY. Ray says his team has a good chance of winning. Naturally, look who's coach. A famous sports reporter told us that it should be a pretty close contest. That sports reporter was JOE CLARK. Joe has awonderful reputa- tion built up as a reporter. His broadcasts are eagerly listened to by many fans. Many networks have offered him contracts but at present he's still with ABC . Another guest who has kept herself busy is BARBARA GRUNDY. She is managing a hospital for disabled veterans. Her ready smile is a great cheer to the fellows. Surprising as it is, Babe is still single. SYLVIA TAYLOR was the next to arrive. Sylvia is nowthelibrarian in charge of the historical documents in Washington. Sylvia 'is now an authority on these documents. Another ofthe class who has asuccessful business venture is ALICE JUNE BEATY. She is a famous interior decorator in New York. The most famous of her creations is the planning for re-decoration of the White House. After it was remodeled in 1949-1950 Congress decided to have it decorated every ten years and Alice got the job. JOAN ENGELHART decided to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a teacher. She is very outstanding in this field. The University of Chicago has anno unc e d that it will present Joan with an honorary Doctor's degree at the end of this semester. , FRANK HORNBECK was in a hurry when we visited him. It seems he was ina rush so that he could meet Bonnie in time for their lunch. He did tell us, however, that he now has a coaching position at Purdue Uni- versity. Bonnie is still his main interest though. Well, well, if it isn't NORMA JONES. Norma tells us that she is now a writer, thanks to Miss Hewitt and her term papers. Those papers startedher onher career of writing. Her latest novel is WHAT? Origi- nal title, wouldn't you say? Now we've visited all our class mates and its time to returnto those jobs. A glorious time was had by all and we we left, a promise was made to hold our next reunion in Hollywood. Already we are looking forward to this pleasure. 26 SCHOOL DAZE, SCHOOL DAZE, GOOD OLD GOLDEN RULE DAZE 28 L -1 :SFI 5 Freshmen: Donna Franklin, Coach Smlth M155 Galloway, Darrell Donaldson, and Gene S1kes Sophomore: Lou Forbes, Mr.Carr Mr Ball Lorraine Cur vey, Maxine Rathgeber and Howard Reynolds Junior: Miss Hewitt, Mr.I-Ienrick, Lee Skmnner, and Bernard Noonan.

LEE SKINNER Junior Class History When the doors of M. C.H.S. opened in September, 1947, there were 27 freshman waiting to rush in. Yes, we were green, but we were also eager and ambitious. With Mrs.Martin's help as class advisor, we soon got acquainted by writing our autobiographies. The officers we chose were: Darrell Brown, presidentg Jerry Fahl, vice-president, and Margie Jenkins, secretary and treasurer. An all-school party was given early in the year. Three of our boys played on the "B" squad in basketball. As "Silly Sophomores" our class increased in size and importance. Mrs.Robinson was class advisor, Fred Oller, presidentgBob Chambers, vice-presidentg Jerry Furray, Secretary and treasurer. We had an all- school circus party in the fall, and a skating party at Taylorville in May. Our class was represented on both the first and second basketball teams. Bernie Noonan was manager of the team and Allan Curvey was chosen cheerleader. This year, as Jolly Juniors, every student in our class was kept pretty busy. The term started, as usual, by a class meeting and election of officers . Wayne White was chosen "boss" ofthe Junior class. Bernie Noonan, vice-president, and Lee Skinner, secretary and treasurer. Miss Hewitt and Mr. Henrick are class advisors. Both have worked awfully hard, and it is really appreciated. Miss Hewitt was director of the Junior class play, "So Very Young". She and the members of the cast worked hard to make it a success. Another duty we took over was selling pop at the basketball games. The committee could always be seen cleaning bleachers and putting away bottles after a home game. They were: Emma Babbs, Dorothy Harris, Margie Jenkins, Wayne White, Allan Curvey, and Ernie Sikes. On the basketball floor we were represented by Lee Skinner and Darrell Brown. Both boys did a wonderful job of playing, Sue Stewart and Jerry Fahl were cheerleaders and Bernie Noonan, team manager. May ll is the date for our big event, the Junior-Senior prom. Joe Ladd's orchestra is playing for the dance, and we hope it's abig success. We are happy to end our third year at M. C.H. S., but no memories will be better than those of the Jolly Juniors of '49 and '50.

At our first class meeting we selected Mr. Henricks, our science teacher as our class advisor. Then after much to do about who we wanted for class officers we elected Howard Lamb, presidentg James Herzog, vice-president, Charlene Atte- bery, secretary-treasurer, and Mary Whalen, reporter. Charlene Attebery, Marianna Clower, and Lolita Harbert were chosen from the freshman class as cheerleaders, for the second team. The second team, consisting of freshman and sophomores, and under the direction of Coach Attebery placed first in the conference. During the first semester we gave an all school party, with the help of Mr. Henricks, that went over with great success and was enjoyed by all. We also g ave a class party and went to the Taylorville park for a weiner roast. Later in the evening we went roller-skating. On September 7, 1949, forty-two eager, playful kids rushed up the steps of M.C.H.S. to start a new year as Silly Sophomores. At our first class meeting we selected new class advisors who were Mr. Ball, our band instructor, and Mr. Carr, our mathematics teacher. We also elected new class officers who wereg Howard Reynolds, presidentg Louis Forbes, vice-presidentg Lorraine Curvey, s e c r e ta r yg Maxine Rathgeber, treasurer. Our class is represented nicelyin field activities. On the basketball floor we have Jim Howard and Bob Sheedy who play on both teams plus Jim Richter, L o ui s Forbes, Kenneth Hancock, and Howard Reynolds. Raymond McKinnie is one of the managers for the basketball team. Jim Howard and Louis Forbes also play on the baseball team. We have s e ve r al Sophomores in the senior band this year. They are Lorraine Curvey, Helen Grundy, Norma Johnson, Maxine Rathgeber, Bob S h e e dy , Joyce Spencer, W e s le y Spengler, Pat Vangeison, Mary Whalen, Joyce Wilson, Winona Wilson.

On September 6th came the fatal day, the first day of school. In spite of all the difficulties we finally became adjusted to high school. Some of the difficulties were such as ending up in English when we should be in algebra. All of us like it now and hope that we may finish out our last three years. Freshman are usually studious individuals and we are no exception. The main courses the freshmen ar e taking this year include English, home economics, gene r al science, agriculture, algebra, and general business. The general business is a new course added to the curriculurn and we are the first to have the advantages of the course. At our first class meeting we chose Miss Galloway and Mr. Smith as our class advisors, who have given us loads of help in many kinds of problems. We also chose officers. They are: Darrel Donaldson, pres- identg Donna Franklin, vice-presidentg and Gene Sikes, secretary and treasurer. We g ave the third all-school party of the year and had a terrific outcome and think everyone had a swell time. Sure hope so. We have some promising athletes on the B basketball team from our class. They are: David Anderson, Jimmy Stewart, Gene Sikes, Ronald Thunhorst, Joe Lucas, and .Tim Sloan. The school chose Helen Skinner, Mary Stewart and Phyllis Smith as freshman cheerleaders for the B team. We have quite a few members in the junior band, and several are playing in the senior band. We welcomed two new students into our midst s e c ond semester. One is Connie Sue Phelps from Taylorville. Betty Keith joined us from Irving. Hope they've been happy here. We've enjoyed many activities in our school. Manyfreshmen joined the F.H.A. Six freshmen girls also sing in an Octette which has made several public appe aranc e s . The Glee Club, too, boasts a group of freshies. We will be around next year with the title, the Silly Sophomores. So until then happy landing. See you then !

BASKETBALL B SQUAD The basketball B squad did very well this year. The star players are pictured above. The B squad played all conference games, losing only two. These games were lost to Virden and St. James. Due to these losses Morri- sonville did not win the conference trophy. Cheerleaders for the B squad were Mary Margaret Stewart, Helen Skinner, and Phyllis Smith. These boys did very well this year, but watch their tracks when, with practice, they become Morrisonville's first team.

This is your sport commentator giving you the highlights of the spo rts year of 1950. The Mohawks started out with a bang in the Fall by winning four out of four baseball games against Raymond, Stonington, Farmersville, and then Raymond again. The win- ning pitcher was Amos Johnson for three of the four games, and Frank Hornbeck for the other with a no-hit, no-run game. The Mohawks gave up only five hits out of the four games. Time rolled around and b as ketb all season was here again. The Mohawks did exceptionally well this year. They only lo s t one confer- ence game and that was to Nokomis. We finished-with a conference tie at the end of the season. Both teams got a first place trophy, of which they were very proud. The boys went to the Regional tournam ent at Taylorville. Their first game was against Pana. The score went to Morrisonville the first quarter, then at the half Pana was four points in the lead. Morrisonville tied up the game, then Pana went out in front by six points, but at the end of the game it was all tied up. The game went into over time. Morrisonville couldn't get started and Pana beat them by five points. That ended the good season of basketball for the Mohawks. With warm weather, the track team began getting in shape. Our first meet was at Kincaid, April 14. Morrisonville led through the field events but when it came to running Kinc aid took over and Morrisonville fell behind. Though Morrisonville doesn't have a track of their own, they do well at the meets. With track season over, baseball started again. Nok- omis came to Morrisonville and went home with a no-hitter with Janssen on the mound for Nokomis. Our next game was with Northwestern with Brown on the mound for Northwestern and Frank Hornbeck on the mound for Morrisonville. Morrisonville won, 2.0 to 3. Waverly came to Morri- sonville to be defeated by Amos Johnson, the pitcher for Morrisonville. Laughort was on the mound for Waverly. The s c o r e was 16 to Z. Did those Mohawks play ball! Morrisonville went to Nokomis to g et a beating. Chadwick was on the mound for Nokomis, and Amos on the Mound forMorrisonvi11e. They beat the Mohawks 8 to 3. Morrisonville scored when Wesley Spengler got a triple with two men on base. He stole home in that same inning. Well, fans this is your Sports Commentator closing the sport news of this year. Coach Smith and the Mohawks did very well.

After the first month of school was over a large group of girls gathered together to elect officers and get things rolling. Officers elected were as follows: president, Carolyn Curveyg vice-president, Lorraine Curveyg secretary and treasurer, Margaret Ann Todtg point recorder, Ramona Bilyeu, and equipment manager, Gloria Taylor. The purpose of this organization is to encourage girls athletics and to give the girls a chance to earn their school letters themselves. In G. A. A. we have a point system which entitles each girl to get awards with so many points for each award. All of the girls worked very hard this year to earn their awards. The first fall meeting we chose volley ball as our first sport. We had several successful activitymeetings during this sport and they were very much enjoyed by all. One of our main events is basketball tournaments. The members decided to have class tournaments, which always prove to be exciting. The girls voted to buy a trophy for the champions and have their class name engraved on the trophy. During the basketball season the G. A. A. members sponsored sev- eral after game dances. We served sandwiches and sodas which gave us a little profit on the side. After the basketball tournaments were over the girls tried their talents at bowling. Although the season was almost over we learned to throw the ball down the alley without going down the alley with the ball. Other activities included shinning the trophies and the trophy case and buying the three cheerleaders new skirts. What a difference those skirts made. So another year has been enjoyed by every member. The girls have learned to appreciate sports and athletics, to promote good health, and encourage good sportsmanship and leadership, which are the aims and ideals of the Girls' Athletic Association. Now last, but by no means least, we want to take time out to thank our adviser, Miss Galloway, who made the o r g ani zation what it is today. We want to thank her for her time spent in helping us make it a success. Her ideas, suggestions, and work paved the way to a year of much enjoyment and accomplishments. Her support was appreciated by every member. So we again say thank you, Miss Galloway, for your time and efforts. 55 Carolyn Curvey AS YOU SAW 11-IRM , W ,Mx 56 ff 57 Band News ' Our new band director, Dean H. Ball, came to meet his doom on September 6, 1949. Since that was the first day of school all the band members were in a turmoil. First of all we elected officers for the year. They are as follows: Lester Curvey, pr e s identg .Toan Engelhart, secretaryg Ed Jones, li- brariang and Melvin Rich and Dean Voorhees, property men. At the beginning of the year we had thirty-five musical minded students in the band. When second semester came around the junior band joined us, which made our band much larger and the noise greater. To add to the attraction were ten strutting twirlers, namely lone Mundhenke, Lolita Harbert, Virginia Oller, Deloris Smith, Jo Ann Christian, Shirley Davis, Shirley Thacker, Wilma Secrest, Lavonne Kent, and Betty Dowdy. The band has participated in many activities this year. On November 3 we dressed up in our pretty scarlet and gray uniforms and went to Springfield to hear the Marine Band. Our fall concert took place on December 8. Probably the biggest event of the year was the Christmas program. The band entertained all the grade schools in the unit. On February 6we played at Palmer. On February 16 we tuned up our horns, tightened up our drurns, and ventured to Raymond for a concert. We are exchanging concerts with several of the neighboring towns this year. We also played at most of the home basketball games. The mixed chorus is made up of about thirty voices. There is also an octette consisting of freshman girls with Ronella Armitage as their assistant director. Something else we should mention is our high school jamsession. Five of the senior boys got together and decided to put their music ability to use. They are Melvin Rich, cornetg Bob Clower, tromboneg Loren Arkebauer, saxophoneg Lester Curvey, guitar and vocalg and Ed Jones, drurns. They played for several high school parties and also at other public performances. We entered contest in class C this year. The district contest 'date was held on April 1 at Lincoln. The solos were judged on March 25. Winona Wilson and Ed Jones entered with vocal solos. Instrumental solos were Joyce Wilson, pianog Ronella Armitage , pianog Lester Curvey, baritone, Melvin Rich, cornetg Bob Clower, tromboneg Ed Jones, tromboneg lone Mundhenke, twirlingg and Virginia Oller, twirling.

At the last meeting of the preceding school year offices were vested in the following persons: president, Marian Smithg vice-president, Mar- jorie Ienkinsg s e c r e t a r y , Barbara Hillg treasurer, Dorothy Harris: reporter, Darlene Hill, and parlimentarian, Maxine Rathgeber. The first meeting was held and members were chosen to attend the House of Delegates meeting held in Springfield. Those students selected were Gloria Taylor, Barbara Lowis, and Margaret Ann Todt. A Chapter Mother was selected to aid in sponsoring the club. Mrs. Howard Taylor, mother of Gloria Taylor, was chosen by the club. Mrs. Aull, our home economics teacher, was also a sponsor. She was always willing to pitch in and lend a hand and much of the success of the club was due to her efforts. During national F.H.A. week which was the first week of November the club had many activities. Included were informal initiation, formal initiation, an assembly program, rose sale, and food sale. The ro s e sale consisted of selling real roses to the people in the town, proceeds going to the s cholar ship fund, which any senior girl planning to study home economics further is eligible to use. Both the rose and food sale were great s uc c e s s e s , due to the co-operation of club members. ' The Annual C h r i s tm a s party w a s sponsored by the F.H.A. club December 23. T he recreation room was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree, Santa's sleigh, and evergreen boughs. A Christmas queen was chosen with Jerry Furray receiving the c rown . Her court consisted of Margaret Ann Todt, Jeanne Ebe, Lorraine Curvey, Norma Johnson, Dorothy Harris, Barbara Hill, and Marian Smith. Jerry was crowned with the sleigh as herithrone. Santa Claus, very appropriately placed the c rown upon her head and presented her with a bo uquet of American Beauty roses. Another of the money-making projects included the s elling of a variety of cards, stationery, and napkins. These are the more outstanding accomplishments of the F.H.A. and we're hoping you enjoyed reading about them.

PROSE, SERVICE STATION 66 Future Farmers The Morrisonville Chapter of the Future Farmers started this year with an enrollment of forty-five members. At the various meetings held by the Future Farmers problems, pertaining to the organization, were discussed and voted on by the members. The year's activities started with the officers attending Officer's Training School at Farmersville. We are going to purchase a registered gilt for the chapter project. The committee to see about obtaining this project is as follows: Dick Bails, Chairman, Jerry Fahl and Glenn Myers, comrnittee members. We gave an all school dance September 30th. Cider and do-nuts were served as refreshments, and Lester Curvey furnished the enter- tainment. There was a large attendence and everyone had a gay time. There was dancing, of course, the Virginia reel played a large part in the evenings entertainment. Even the teachers dropped their formality and joined in a whirl or two. On October 13th we had V-Roy the magician here. We made appro- ximately S30.00 from his show. V-Roy had many tricks up his sleeve, including pulling the rabbit out of a hat, an immortal princess act, and making a radio disappear. Everyone enjoyed his act. The freshmen were initiated and all passed the test to become mem- bers of the F. F. A. It took much determination on their part, however, to pass the tests. To add to the hurniliation of wearing their clothes backwards, they also had to wait upon the senior members of the club. Nice for the seniors, but the freshmen were not too tickled with the idea. We had a Christmas party on December Zl. During the meeting the freshmen were installed and given their pins. Membership cards were given to all of the members who were at the meeting. May Z we had a judging team entered in the sectional judging con- test. We will also have some members showing projects atthe Christian County Fair next summer. The officers for the chapter for the past yearwere: president, Ernie Sikesg vice-president,'J'oe Clarkg secretary, Melvin Rich, treasurer, Allan Curvey, reporter, Loren Arkebauerg sentinel, Claude Schmedeke.

There was no issue for the first six weeks. . The issuing of the "Mohawk" was lots of fun, but also plenty of hard work. The businessmen in town obligingly bought ads for the "Mohawk" and in this way helped sponsor our paper. Our thanks go to our advisor, Miss Sleevar, for all the valuable help she gave usg and to the production staff, the Typing ll' class. Recognition also should go to the many persons who helped make our paper a success by turning in write-ups. Thanks a lot, folks. We enjoyed very much our wo rk which is now finished: and we leave the task and our good wishes to the next class. Barbara Lowis 69 , vo So Very Young by Dana Thomas The Junior Class presented a three act comedy, "So Very Young", on October 28, '49. Everyone worked hard to make the play a success, especially our director, Miss Hewitt. lt was a wholesome comedy with an appeal to everyone. Mr. and Mrs.Chambers fDonald Rathgeber and Barbara Lowisj are delighted that eighteen-year-old Ann will be bridesmaid for her friend, June Thayer fRonella Armitagej. Privately,they have their own opinion of marriage for one so young. But Ann fMargie Ienkinsj announces that she will be married "next Wednesday" ! The boy is Pat St. John QLeroy Yardj. They have known of Ann's "crush" but discounted its significance. Now, Pat is leaving for school in the east and Ann is to go with him ! Now is the time for all members to come to the aid of the family. First, they point out that she is too young. Frances, fSue Stewart, Ann's married sister, then joins them to plead. Even the neighbors add their arguments. . . all to no avail. Belva, fVirginia Ollerj an old maid friend, states her 'scruples' . Aunt Kate fShirley Gattonj definitely dis- approves ! Then it is that Dad flatly puts his foot down to prohibit the marriage. Thus it is that, in Act Three, with the help of Rupert, QAllan Curveyj the boy next door, Ann elopes to follow Pat. But it turns out that Pat's plans have been changed and he is still in town. Ann has eloped by her- self! Frustrated and worried with other s e rio us problems to harass them, the family is in a turmoil. Father's problem is solved by Mr. A. Albert Monroe fDarrell Brownj. But everything is not under control, and Pat is equally anxious. And suddenly .... Ann is back! With her bags at the station, her ticket purchased, the realization has come over her that she cannot build happiness by creating unhappiness. In a brief hour, Ann has sensed the meaning of sacrifices. The money which was her nest-egg, the profits from a business venture of hers and Pat's, she has loaned to Frances and her husband to solve their financial problem. She will postpone her marriage. It is her father who makes the decision now. He realizes thatthough Ann is only eighteen, she is a woman . . .with a woman's understanding selflessness. Her business venture proves her maturity. With twenty- five minutes to catch the train we find the family and neighbors scurrying about to transform Ann from the little bobby-soxer in saddle oxfords and bandana . . . to a young woman about to be married . . . a bride who is "so very young".

Yes, the junior class was to entertain the seniors at the annual banquet and prom. The theme chosen this year was "The Forty Niners" honoring the seniors. Appropriate invitations and place cards were presented to each guest. The beautiful Camellia Room in the Hotel Frisina at Taylorville was the scene of the banquet. The program consisting of the following was presented after the banquet! Star Dust . . ...... . . . . . . Bob Clower Cheri-Cheri-Bin ...... . . . . . . Melvin Rich Red Roses for a Blue Lady . . . .

Frank Hornbeck Following the banquet and program, dance music was furnished by Chaw Mank's Orchestra in the High School gymnasiunn. The theme of the prom was carried out in the decorating of the gym also. Dance programs were issued. ' The ceiling of the gym was covered to give the effect of a large wagon wheel. One corner was occupied by a covered wagon enclosed by a rail fence. The orchestra was seated in the other corner at the same end of the gyrn. The stage was transformed into a pretty setting for the crowning of the queen. There were blue and white dec o r ations with baskets of peonies adding to the splendor. The name of the queen was revealed by the retiring queen, Clara Richter, as she crowned Miss Pauline McLean queen of the 1949 prom. The members of the queen's court included: Ramona Bilyeu, Juanita Davidson, Gloria Taylor, and Marian Smith. During the ceremony the queen was presented with a dozen red roses and a cosmetic bag by the junior class. The next dance was honoring the new queen, her attendants, and last year's queen. The g r and march brought the c e r e monie s honoring the queen to a close. The rest of the evening consisted of dancing and refreshments.

The Crest staff hope you enjoy reading and browsing through the year book. Much of the credit for the annual goes to Miss Sleevar, our sponsor and commercial teacher, who spent many hours advising and working with us. As far as the financial status is concerned all the seniors worked hard to make the quota. Ioan Engelhart and Carolyn Curvey really showed some salesmanship during the magazine drive with Joan's sales topping S 125 and Carolyn's total subscriptions were next high. Richard Bails, Dwight Ebe, and Amos Johnson also did some selling of a different nature. They sold advertising to the business firms. Money-making, however, was not the only thing to be done. Often, as you advanced toward the school house you would hear these words, "Watch the birdie". Many of the pictures are due to the efforts of the camera staff. Perhaps you would see a girl flying down the hall with a handful of money after she had had a conference with the ad-sellers. That was our business manager. Or maybe you would venture into the commercial room and find a group of feverishly working seniors-the sports editor, the art editors, the activities editor, class editor, will and prophecy editor, editor-in-chief, or assistant editor.

The action of the play took place in a court room. Karen Andre, played by Marian Smith, was on trial for the murder of Bjorn Faulkner. Lester Curvey and Bob Clower served as attorneys. A jury was chosen from the audience. Bjorn Faulkner had been murdered on the night of January 16th. and on that same night Karen Andre had been seen pushing a body off of the roof of the penthouse. Acording to "Underworld Larry Regan", played by Ed Jones, this was the body of a gangster named Lefty O'Toole. Karen had served as secretary to "Swindler Bjorn Faulkner" up to the time of his marriage to Nancy Lee Whitfield,played by Barbara Hill. Melvin Rich, acting as father of Nancy Lee, demanded that all personal, as well as business, relations between Mr. Faulkner and Miss Andre be cut off. At the time Karen had been discharged, however, Bjorn did not stop seeing her. To add to the anxiety and suspence there were many witnesses for and against Karen. They consisted of Dr. Kirkland fDonald Lee Rathge- berj, the doctor who had been called to examine the body of Mr. Faulkner: Mrs. John Hutchins fAlice June Beatyj, the negro wife of a janitor with "no gumption": Homer Van Fleet fDickBailsD, a private investigator who had been hired by Nancy Lee to shadow Bjorn Faulkner, Elmer Sweeney fFrank Hornbeckj, a round faced, rookie policeman, Magda Svenson QJoan Engelhartj, who speaks with a Swedish accent in a loud raucous voiceg Jane Chandler QSylvia Taylorj, a handwriting e xpe rtg Sigurd Janguist fCharles Johnsonj, rather timid and also speaks with a Swedish accent, and Roberta Van Rensselaer fRamona Bilyeuj, the wife of Lefty O'Toole. No courtroom scene can be complete without a prison matron, who was played by Norma Jones, a bailiff, Jim Donaldsong secretaries, Bar- bara Grundy and Pauline McLeang a clerk, Jim Swinger, a stenographer, lone Mundhenkeg and naturally a judge, played by Jim Stanley. After all the testimonies had been given the jury was called from the audience to give their decision. This was, indeed, an unusual play because the audience played a very important part in it. We wish to thank Mrs. Robinson for her long hours of hard work and patience. Someone else we should definitely mention is Gloria Taylor, assistant director. She also had a big task and fulfilled it well. Joan Engelhart 77 Library Staff Seated: Sue Mae Stewart, Barbara Lowis, Mrs. Robinson.

This page sponsored by GOLLOGHER'S HARDWARE, TAYLORVILLE, ILLINOIS 78 Library News If you were to visit the Morrisonville High School you would find many students in the library. Some may be reading newspapers and mag- azines, some may be checking out books, and still others will be just "1oafing". Some of the outstanding new books of the year are: Son 2 Q-ie Black Stallion, 101 Years' Entertainment, Cheaper by the Dozen, Highpockets, Story of the Negro, River of the Wolves, Watch for 1Tall White Sail, and Inside ttf F. B. I. We have quite a store of magazines too. For the girls there is "Seventeen", for the boys we find "Boys' Life", and for the interest of all we notice "Life", "Post", Readers' Digest", and other magazines of interest. Of course there are daily newspapers, comics and all, which we enjoy reading. Individual name cards are used for checking out books this year. If you lose your card youhave to pay S 1.00 for it. By using these individual cards it is much more convenient to find misplaced or lost books. There are also fines for overdue books. We think Mrs. Robinson has certainly helped us to have a better library. She has worked during her free hours and after school to make it more beneficial to the students. The Library Staff also deserves credit for a well-run library. This group of students have agreed to take care of the library for one period each day. They are always willing to help you locate books, check them out, or notify you of books overdue. The Staff is as follows: 1 hour . . . . Marjorie Jenkins 2 hour . . . . Sue Mae Stewart 3 hour . . . Carolyn Curvey 4 hour . . . . . Alice Beaty 5 hour . . . . Melba Taylor 6 hour . . . . Glenn Myers 7 hour . .. ........... Barbara Lowis 8 hour ............. Virginia Ollers Many enjoyable hours have been spent in the Library this past year and we know students will continue to enjoy this advantage. ' Alice Beaty 79 ff 9, C Lf ,f" M ,f CQ!
