Text from Pages 1 - 88 of the 1956 volume:
With the passing of time, the echoes of our school life will grow fainter and fainter, and then die away. Gone forever will be the routine of school life, the fun we had, and the friends we made. It is the hope of the 1956 Mohawk Staff that, as you glance through this book in the years to come, you
will recapture those moments-----
and the echoes will begin again."DecUcatCatt
We dedicate this book to our Parents. To their unselfishness, wisdom, and countless virtues that have governed our lives to become a better citizen.SufrenutteKcUtU - - Pnincifiat

Four years of work and fun have come to an end for the Seniors of '56. When we think back over our past four years we will remember them as a lot of fun even though we had to work hard. There will always be pleasure in remembering our classmates and teachers. It is with faith and hope that we look to the future.

The kind of boy all the high schools need.

A group of 42 junior explorers returned to M. C. H. S. in the fall, more confident and sure of reaching their goal. Representatives from the class were found in all school activities. The class sold Christmas cards and took care of concessions at the home basketball games as part of their money making projects. In closing a most successful year they gave a banquet and prom in honor of the seniors.
Members of the class are looking forward to their senior year, and hope to be a credit to Morrisonville High School.

Forty-six freshmen entered the high school in the fall, full of pep and ready for anything. The first days of their four-year adventure were spent living down the name "Freshie" which was given to them by the upperclassmen. They soon settled down to business and at an early meeting elected their class officers. Class members enthusiastically took part in all the school activities and did very well in them. The highlight of their activities for the year was the all-school party they gave in honor of the seniors.
The freshmen were well pleased with the completion of their first year at M. C. H. S.

The Mohawks had a good season this fall with a 3-3 record. Very capable pitching services were rendered by Bob Jenkins and Ron Painter. Behind the plate was the capable catcher, Gary Herzog. Much credit goes to all the boys who made up the squad as they put forth what it takes to win ball games.
In the batting department there were two outstanding boys. Gary Herzog, whose average was a high . 500 and John Waterman, whose average was . 350.
All this adds up to a very bright outlook for the spring season. With all this talent they can't miss winning.

A valuable asset to any athletic team is the manager. Larry Dowdy has spent much time in assisting the coaches and players in every way that was possible. We are sure the coaches, teams, and the whole student body appreciate the effort Larry has put forth.
Two important feathers in our Mohawk war bonnet are Coach Smith and Coach Duncan. They have compiled a very commendable athletic record this year. Besides leading the athletic teams they have been very successful in promoting sportsmanship and school spirit. These are two of the more important aspects of the school. We wish to congratulate the coaches on the excellent job they have done this year.

One of the steadiest and most dependable players on the squad is big JOHN WATERMAN. Playing a tremendous game against Divernon, John showed the spark that helps to make a winning team. His great rebounding and accurate shooting was a main factor in a close victory against Divernon.

fn an exciting game with Mt. Auburn in the CMS tournament, LARRY McKINNEY led his team to an important victory. With his deceptive dribbling and good shooting he made them sit up and take notice of the fine game he played. The Mohawks depended upon him to get them out of their tight spots and guide them on. He may be the man to watch in the Morrisonville team lineup next year if he keeps up his good work. Even with his height disadvantage, he has proved that it is not so important and shows he is very good.

The 1954- 55 track season was a very successful one. Three new school records were set. Gary Herzog set a new record for the quarter mile; Donald Wanack set a new mark in the shotput; and John Stanley had a record try for the high jump. All we can say for these boys and the rest of a swell team is, "Nice going, boys. We're sure proud of you."

G. A. A. is an organization for girls interested in athletics other than those carried on in physical education classes. Morrisonville G. A. A. consists of fifty girls who have held, during the school year, a number of events. Amoung those events were a hike and weiner roast, a slumber party, a Christmas party, and other activities such as social dancing and recreational games.
At the first of the year the officers attended a workshop at Hillsboro, which enabled them to lead the organization to its best advantage. The G. A. A. holds business meetings once a month and every Tuesday there is an activity period after school during which the girls play recreational games.

MOLLY JO BATES Accompanist
Recognition is given to Molly Jo Bates, the 1955- 56 chorus accompanist. The hours spent by her were appreciated by the chorus members and she contributed immensely to the great showing the choral group made this year.
Compliments of BERT AND NEAL ANDERSONOn November 10, the senior class gave Florence Ryerson's comedy, "Ever Since Eve." It proved to be a financial success as well as entertaining.
"Ever Since Eve" was the mirthful story of Susan Blake, a "career girl," and the troubles which beset those two loyal musketeers, Johnny Clover and Spud Erwin, Editor and Business Manager of the Preston High School Penguin, when Susan high-pressures herself into the position of Assistant Editor. Before the curtain falls on the second act, Susan--always with the best possible intention--has almost bankrupted and given them the measles. When her innocent enthusiasm almost lands them in jail, Johnny's mother steps in and saves the day.

"Dream" would truly describe the 1955 Junior-Senior Prom on May 20. Preceding the Prom all invited guests were entertained at the banquet, with the Seniors as special guests of honor. The banquet was decorated in lavender and gold. Organ music by Frances Strader furnished a dreamy atmosphere, while all enjoyed the food prepared by the Junior mothers.
Following the banquet, the guests entered the Garden of Golden Dreams through the castle door and crossed the drawbridge to an evening of enchantment. Walt Schlemmer provided the music for dancing, in a ballroom decorated with silver stars, soft moonlight, lovely flowers, and a castle wall providing an enchanting background.
As the clock neared the hour, the long anticipated event took place. The queen, Shirley Franklin, escorted by Gary Herzog ascended the golden stairs to the throne. The queen was seated and the crown was placed on her head by the retiring queen. Miss Janann Duffy. Members of the court were Barbara Huddleston escorted by Jerry Snyder, Phyllis Franklin escorted by Lyle McWard, Karen Saffer escorted by Gene Wilson, and Angela Schweitzer escorted by Eugene Leach. Following the coronation, the queen, her court, and prom guests were entertained with special dance acts by the Stardusters.
All attending will truly remember the evening as a dream in the Garden of Golden Dreams.
