To the boys Who have shown us such fine entertainment
throughout the year We dedicate this book. .
Our basketball squad played fine ball, Winning the Regional
and Sectional tournaments. Competing at State they were
defeated in the first round. '
Under the fine leadership of Coach Taylor the spirit of team-
Work which was shown on the football field Will be a great help
in future life.
' More fans followed the games this year than ever before.
Keep it up, boys, and We'll be proud of you.

WVlElLlLslLslL . . . llT"S THIS WAY
We've all been up to plenty around school this yearl and just for fun
here's a short review of 1943-44. '
First of all, our four new members of the faculty made their debut on the
opening day of school before A425 pupils. Miss Maud Moore has been out
capable new domestic science teacherg Miss Sharp has taken on the double
duty of teaching both Spanish and Englishg while Miss Stanley has devoted
all her time to English and American literatureg and Mr. Floyd ably directed
our industrious Future Farmers of America. '
The athletic season was an outstanding successg our football and basket-
ball boys showing the true Mt. Carmelvspirit. Our triumphant victories at
regional and sectional tournament were climaxed by our never'-to-be-forgot
ten trip to state. We were beaten by Champaign, but only after a long, hard
The music department was tops again, working toward the highlight of
the year-the Music Festival on May 12. On that day Mt. Carmel was host
to a number of visiting bands from near-by cities. As usual the band kept
the morale high by playing at all the games. "Pap" Perkins went
strictly jazz this year with tunes like "Shoo-Shoo Baby" and "Paper
Doll". Then there was "Pistol-Pcickin' Mama"-Well, we'll ignore that.
After its grand opening on fanuary 27 the "Shack" became the most
popular after school and evening gathering place. A Student Council co-
operating with the "Shack" management undertook the task of providing the
necessary student workers.
In the way of entertainment this year, the Iuniors again contributed with
their monthly All-School Dances. Then the funiors gave the Seniors their
send-off at the Iunior-Senior Prom on May 25th and the picnic at the pool. The
Debate Club formal dance and banquet and many other club affairs rounded
off the year.
Much as we hate to have the Seniors leave us and much as we. will miss
them next -year, we underclassmen wish them the best of luck and are looking
forward to another year as successful as this one has been,
Out of the depths of past remembrances, echoes
the Sibylline with its choice records and fond memo-
ries. The records may be of Mt. Carmel High
School's progress, of athletic achievements, of cul-
tural activities, and of honors made. The memories
may be of happy times, of hours hard spent and of
friendships formed. Without the Sibylline these im-
pressions would soon fade and die. We have faith-
fully set down for you a resume of the happenings
of the past year, realizing always the futility of our
task, that is, to encompass in a book of comparative-
ly few pages the many activities-of our high school.
And if, in the years to come, our work in its sugges-
tive compactness is able to augment your memory
and bring back to you the year's picture in its
entirety, We will feel amply repaid for our Work.

SENIUR CLASS HISTURY
On that bright fall morning of September, in 1940, the doors of Mt. Carmel
High School were opened to us-a group of 167 "green freshies" who were
eager to see just what our four years here would have in store. As our lead-
ers for the first year we chose Clarence Mullins, Ann Reinhardt, Elaine Glick
and Mary Pat Brines. Miss Moore and Mrs. McLaughlin were our very able
advisers and to them we owe much of the success of our "Kid Party" and the
party which we enjoyed in April.
When we were Sophomores we agreed on Mrs. McLaughlin and Mr.
Howerton for our able sponsors. Our class officers were filled by Frederick
Wood, Ann Reinhardt, Norman Canedy and Paul Iones, who did a very ex-
cellent job of leading us. Our social life as "Sophies" consisted of a "Lil
Abner Party" at which we all dressed "Dog Patch Style" and another party
at which all classes were represented. '
Our real year was at hand. We were Iginiors and were obliged to take
on the responsibilities of the biggest year of our high school career. As our
sponsors we again chose our leadersof the other two years, Mrs. McLaugh-
lin, Miss Moore, and Mr. Howerton who as before guided us through work and
play. Our officers, Paul Iones, Keith Coleman, Fred Wood, and lane Blood
helped choose the committee chairmen who arranged our "Iunior-All School
Dances" held each month. The play presented, "Going Places" really went
And now the highlight of our high school life, our Senior Year, we choose
as officers Frederick Wood, Rose Dyehouse, Clairda Keneipp and Elizabeth
F ye. Miss Stanley and Miss Mignonne Cheesman led us to our final goal-
graduation. Our senior play "Brother Goose" was a great success. Our
final social life, the Iunior-Senior Prom and Commencement Dance will be
remembered by all.
During our journey through high school we have been well represented in
clubs, athletics, and music. We feel we have really accomplished some-
thing and now, Iuniors, you may have our places because we must go.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Three years have elapsed since. ll5 Freshmen entered Mt. Carmel High
School some day to be known as the Class of '45. That first year we had a
Friday the 13th party which was made successful by our sponsors Miss Moore
and Mr. Arrick, and our class officers james Cleary, Patricia Carlton, jackie
Case, and Katie Ruth Farley.
The next year when we returned to the "halls of fame" as we were better
acquainted with them, we soon made ourselves known. Aided by our
sponsors, Miss Mignonne Cheesman and Miss Cantrell, we enjoyed two very
successful parties. Our officers were lohn Rafferty, Betty French, Phyllis
Skiles, and Theda Tyler. After two years of drilling and learning we were
ready for our lunior year.
Now we are juniors. Although decreased in number to 85 we are still
just as green, sophisticated, and jolly as ever. Our sponsors for this year
were Miss Elizabeth Cheesman, Mr. Rutledge, and a new member of the fa-
culty, Mr. Floyd. I '
These sponsors and the talented members of the junior Class produced a
junior Play that was "Terrific," Namely, Mind of Her Own."
Our class officers, lack Canedy, loe McGuire, lack Hill, and jackie Case,
and the sponsors with the aid of nine Committee Chairmen and their Com-
mittees presented monthly all-school dances which were enjoyed' immensely
by the student body. Q
Using our profits from the play, from selling candy and popcorn at games,
and from magazine subscriptions, we gave the Seniors a most wonderful
Prom and picnic. These took place on May 25 and 26.
We wouldn't do our class justice unless we told of our talented boys, those
who played on the football and on the basketball team. I think we can be
just insaying, that if some of our junior boys hadn't been on the basketball
team we certainly wouldn't have gone to the state tournament.
Our class is also represented in the many clubs, in the musical depart-
ment, and on the honor roll. -

SOPHOMURE CLASS HISTORY
In the fall of 1942, l37 green recruits entered the Freshmen Barracks of
Mt.C.H.S. Between being subdued by the more experience in the camps and
being thrown in and out of the guardhouse we marched through our first
Those chosen by the recruits for the officer's training were President, lack
O'Donnell, Vice-President, Virginia Sweeney, Secretary, Doris Fischer,
Treasurer, Vera Baird. Those in charge of the early training were Miss
Goedecke and Miss Eli'zabeth Cheesman. After becoming accustomed to
Army life in Mt.C.H.S. we had our first maneuver on February 26.
After a 3 month furlough we were advanced from our Buck Private train-
ing and became Privates lst Class. With this rating we look down upon the
new rookies with the same contempt as we experienced in our first course of
From our Combany, Earl Bosaw, Bill Lucas, Lois Ann Wallar, and Carol
Pye were selected for Officer's Candidate School. Our commanding officers
are Margaret Tucker and A. D. Howerton. Since it is leap-year, on Ianuary
26 we had a maneuver fitting the occasion when the WACS invited the G.l.'s.
We are looking forward to our next furlough and promotion.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
On September 7, 1943, Mt. Carmel High School was invaded by a large,
green group known as the Freshman class. After tackling some of our biggest
fears we began to find our Way around and to feel our importance. We chose
lay Keyser as President, Donna Campbell as Vice President, Richard Lankford
as Secretary and Gene Barnett as .'l'reasurer. During the year we were taken
under the wings of Miss Irene Moore and Mr. Erne.
The big event of the year was an all-Freshman party on February 24th,
and it certainly was a hilarious affair.
' The class is represented in many of the school activities. There are a
number' of freshmen in the band, glee clubs, various musical groups, and also
in other clubs of the school. Several boys on the football and basketball
teams managed to successfully hold up their parts. With all this we were
still able to keep a large number on the Honor Roll.
As we look back, we feel cz little less green and bewildered than we did
nine months ago. We'll all be back next fall ready for three more yegrs of
fun--and, incidentally, studying. ,

lFlUTlURlE FARMERS UF AMERICA
The FFA. is a national organization of, by, and for, boys studying voca-
tional agriculture. The F.F.A. was organized in 1928. Any boy may belong
to the PFA. if he is enrolled in vocational agriculture. The FFA. Emblem is a
cross section of an ear of corn surmounted by an American Eagle. Inscribed
upon the emblem is a plow, and the rising sun, also the words "Vocational
Agriculture and PPA."
Our aims are to improve agriculture and rural leadership. Our accom-
plishments this year Were selling magazines and garden seeds. We bought
a three by six foot banner. It is blue trimmed in gold. March the sixteenth
the PFA. enjoyed a banquet for the parents of the members, and we were

.lllUNllUlR CLASS PLAY
Before a large audience on December 9, the Iuniors rnade a great suc-
cess When they presented "A Mind of Her Own." The play gave many lun-
iors an opportunity to display their acting ability.
ln the cast were Lizzie, the grim faced maid played by leanne Flanders,
lovable but changeable Bunny played by Peggy Dougherty, her exasperated
Dad in person of lack Hill, her attractive, impulsive Mother played by Ianet
Watson, Tommie, an unruly boy of 16, played by Iunior Dixon, Carol, a girl
from the city as Katie Ruth Farley, Norma Glazier played the part of mischiev-
ious Nettie, Delphine, an energetic girl of 18, played by Irene Fullop. The
career Woman was played by Barbara McTaggart, Steve, the likeable Texan
who turned out to be the "one man" by lames Cleary. A cocksure boy who
considers himself irresistible to the ladies, was played by Ioe McGuire, and
the Naturalist played by Ioanne Kneipp, lessica, who was sophisticated and
liked to be important was played by Patricia Carlton.
The play was splendidly directed by Miss Elizabeth Cheesman, assisted
by Mr. Rutledge and Mr. Floyd.
In order to cover the different divisions of the Music Department, let us
take an imaginary tour of a day in this department.
As We enter the portals of our famed Music Department, we must be as
quiet as possible so as not to disturb the great musicians at their Work. THUDl
Oh, don't be alarmed, it's only a majorette's baton falling to the floor with a
For the first period We will go to the Music Room. The groups practicing
as we enter are the Girl's Sextet and the Boy's Quartette. These groups are
composed of the best voices in high school.
Next, We will hear a larger group, the Band. "I'M GOING TO BUY A PAPER
DOLL THAT I CAN CALL MY OWN." Yes, that is the band and not Fred
Waring's Pennsylvanians, Their novel way of singing popular songs at the
ball games has afforded great entertainment, but marches and overtures are
more in their style of playing.
This year due to gas rationing there will not be a contest for organized
groups, however, here will be a district contest for solos and ensembles. There
comes a boy with a clarinet in his hand, mpiybe .he could ' ' S Where some
of the soloists are practicing. Could you tell us wher o 'a soloist prac-
ticing? fl-le waves his hand toward a door from beid wli we hear a
mixture of sounds, then Walks offl. Surely he couldnt mean they are all
practicing in that one roorn??'?? ' 4 .3 '

Iudging from the sounds overhead and knowingfthe clock has ticked
around to fourth period, it must be Music Appreciaticin class. The main pur-
pose of this class is to hear and learn to appreciate the music of the finest
composers. Due to the extent of our fine music library, of which a thousand
records were given us by the Meissner Manufacturing Plant, the members of
this class have a wonderful opportunity to hear really fine music. Blended

The next class We will visit is the Glee Clubs. We have a boys' glee
club and a girls' glee club. They can be heard on our annual spring con-
certs. lt is from these glee clubs that Mr. Perkins selects his material for
A Cappella Choir.
The last thing on our program is the Cappella Choir. As l said before
the material for this group is chosen from the Glee Clubs we heard last per-
iod. This group consists of fifty voices.
There are two other groups which we will not have time for, but are
worth mentioning. They are the Orchestra and Student Directors.

The Debate Club has long been one of the foremost organizations in the
school. We would say the foremost, but perhaps we are a little prejudiced,
The club got underway with a bang early in September. We chose as
officers: Claire Campbell, Presidentg Phyllis Skiles, Vice-President, Ianet Wat-
son, Secretary, and loe McGuire, Treasurer. Miss Stanley acted very capably
as adviser. The club consists of forty members, and meets each Tuesday
night. The national topic this year was concerned with the role of the United
States in reconstituting the League of Nations, and several debates and round
table discussions were held on this subject. Debates are staged on humorous
topics as Well as serious, and the frequent extemporaneous debates, besides
being practical, often prove quite entertaining.
The club is also active socially, and our first event was a Christmas party
in December which proved to be a great success. Of course, we are all look-
ing forward eagerly to the annual banquet and dance in May, which will
climax a very successful and enjoyable year.

El Circulo Espanial, is the youngest club in our school, having been or-
ganized this year in order to further the interest in the Spanish language itself
and in the people of South America and our relations between them.
Under the leadership of our sponsor, Miss Sharpe, and our officers, loe
McGuire, President, Katie Ruth Farley, Vice-President, lack Hill, Secretary,
Dixie Lee Nightlinger, Treasurer, We are approaching our goal. There were
no initiations this year, due to the fact that all the members are charter mem-
The meetings are ..1ried, but they are usually based on some country in
South America. Some are social, others entirely educational. Spanish games
and songs are given.
I The dues are used partly for the entertainment of the members by the
purchase of refreshments and partly for some additions to our Spanish de-
Some special social function is planned for the end of the year.

President, Frederick Wood, Vice-President, Claire Campbell, Treasurer, Betty
Main, Secretary, lane Blood, and Sergeant-at-Arms, Roy Wade. Miss Reincke
is the sponsor. U
The programs of this dramatic club consist of talks on popular stage
plays, discussions about the lives and acting of favorite stage and screen
stars and other topics pertaining to dramatics.
Aside from social functions, the main activity of the year was a panto-
mime which was received enthusiastically by those who attended the Iunior
All School Dance in December.
In Ianuary eleven new members were chosen for their outstanding ability
in plays or classroom recitations. A dance and refreshments followed their
solemn candlelight initiation into the club.

Sodalitas Latina, known to the un-Latin as the Latin Club, has this .year
become one of the largest of the academic clubs in the High School:.,Miss
Mignonne Cheesman sponsors the club and is greatly responsible for -main-
taining the alternate Thursday evening meetings as a high note of learning
through playing. The officers this year are: lane Blood, First Consul, Helen
Weisenberger, Second Consul, and Dixie Lee Nightlinger, Scribe. Interesting
programs for the entire year were planned by Rose Dyehouse and Mary
Fearnside. During the school term a special party was held near Christmas
and a picnic was enjoyed near the end of the school year.
The foundations of the Science Club were laid four years ago under the
guidance of Byron Arrick. For several years the organization, has been a
member of Illinois Iunior Academy of Science. After Uncle Sam discovered
how much he needed the services of Mr. Arrick, the sponsorship was pre-
sented to Miss Margaret Tucker. ,
With an increasing interest in things of a scientific nature, the club has
become one of the most respected in school. Miss Tucker has instituted many
reforms and has been willing to offer sage advice and wit to assist in many
of the most difficult and trying experiments that were attempted for the enter-
tainment of the members.
The Science Club Party was held on one of the regular meeting nights in
Ianuary. This high spot of the Science Club year did much to prove that all
scientists have a very 'human and humorous nature even though it is often
concealed Behind retorts, isomers, and broken test tubes.

SENIOR CLASS PRUPHECY
Mt. Carmel, Illinois
lune l, 1954
It's been a long time since we've seen or heard from you and things
certainly have changed. Every once in a while we get to thinking about
the good times we had in old Mt. Carmel High. We'd like to go back through
those halls and reminisce about the fun and the swell friends we knew.
These friends are now on their own and some are big successes in their
chosen careers and ambitions.
You remember Clarke Stein, the guy who went to Culver and always
wore his Culver uniform coat in band. Well he's now Rear-Admiral of the
Pacific Fleet falways behindl. I guess he's quite a guy from what I hear.
' But the guy who had everyone puzzled was Rex Kennard, you know
the guy who thought he could sing CShoo-shoo Baby or Strip Polkal I can't
remember which. He really would have sounded better under water but
you couldn't tell him that. He's still really very unpredictable. He jumps
around from one place to another and never does land. The last I heard
he was jerking sodas again in Hollywood-looking for an agent like Frankie
Remember Keith Coleman that hot clarinet player, who used to like Phyl
Skiles? He now has his own orchestra and it is playing its Sth week at the
Trianon in Chicago. They say he's really a solid sender.
Thinking about the tall buildings makes me think of Hubert Moeller, who
is just recovering from injuries received when he tried to land his helicopter
on top of the court house here. They say it was one of his concoctions. No
wonder it didn't work.
Speaking of crazy people. Dixie Nightlinger is at Anna. Hal She's a
brain surgeon. fFooled you didn't I?l .
The funniest thing, Rupert Finegold is now super salesman for the
"U-Got-'Em and I'll-Swat-'Em" Fly Swatter Company of Akron, Ohio. He's
trying to get them to use his new invention-but he's already blown up two
labs perfecting it, so they're afraid to try.
Gwen Wieler has just accepted a position as architect with a large
Eastern construction company. She has a five year contract to design new
models for little houses behind the big houses. Well, you have to have
some place to keep your cars.
Speaking of getting something: Gene Mollenhauer, better known to you
as "Casanova" is getting his 3rd divorce in Reno. I guess he's been having
trouble finding the right gal.
Say, Ioe we hope this letter isn't boring you too much but its sort of
like old times to talk about what the different kids are doing. Some of them
are really going places, aren't they? ' , -
Now let's see, where were we? Ohl Yes, you remember Frederick
fFritzl Wood? I guess he's making plenty of dough nowadays working with
the DuPont Company. He's quite an inventor and'mastermind. They say
he's another Einstein. ,
You remember Rosemary Peters, don't you? That girl who could yodel.
Well she worked at Emge's Plant in Fort Branch, Indiana, about 6 months and
now she is Mrs. Charles Tate. 1
, Ivan Ankenbrandt, the guy who used to bring announcements around 3rd
period, now has a peanut farm just north of town. gl
Norman Canedy, is now exclusive artist for Esquire. He's taken over

ordered the book, "How to eat well."
Bernice Mains runs a school in Wyoming in "Davenport Wrestling".

DEDICATIOTN T0 THE SHACK
A dilapidated building once previously stood
With ole broken windows and termite-eaten wood.
The floor was a mess, the roof nearly caved in,
And parts of the building patched up with tin.
For quite a time it was paid no attention,
Until one day a parent did mention
To several others about the place,
That with remodeling, it could have some taste.
For the parents were worried about their girls and boys
Who were quickly outgrowing their once cherished toys,
And had turned to dancing and older things,
Even to engagements and wedding rings.
The parents assembled into one group
With a leading minister binding the troop,
Discussing the question of a suitable spot
Where students could go and worry not.
The students responded with a roar of applause,
As they cheerfully agreed to the questioning clause,
So then was started a donating fund
And the thought of remodeling a place was gunned.
The broken down building behind the school
Was the chosen spot for work and tool,
And the workmen began to do their stuff
For they knew that the job would prove to be tough.
Meanwhile, while the work was being done,
The students were asked to choose names and pick one
To be the name of this hall,
And finally "The Shack" was chosen by all.
Settling this question, and retuming again
To the new forming rec hall, now beginning to mend,
The inside beginning to take on a new look
The dust and grime removed from each nook.
The floors were sanded and polished bright,
Painted Walls and ceiling, chandeliers on the lights,
The curtains were draped on the windows so
Cheer was cast on everyone's woe.
The new maple booths were placed at one end
And the color of the floor seemed with them to blend.
The dance floor was marked off by a rope
To make certain the limit with which to cope,
' : 'rv1"H,WIlv""! "
DEDICATION T0 'll'HlE SHACK
The counter was refinished and placed by the booths
At which food and drinks would readily sooth
All of whom might be of thirst or of hunger
Then to this spot would all of them wander.
The music furnished by a swell nickelodian
Where you could hear your favorite band
And dance and sway to your delight
And make you feel happy, cheerful and bright.
In case you would tire of eating and dancing
And want to do a little prancing
You might try playing a game of ping-pong
That is if you can get past the wild throng.
And then there are quiet games you can play.
Checkers or cards, whatever you say
And the last we have the well known pool
With no betting here as the golden rule.
We must not forget another thing
There the restrooms in which your coat you can hang
And also primp and powder your nose
And comb your hair and straighten your clothes.
I guess that's about all there is to tell
Except that the shack is really swell
lt's what we've needed for quite a while
And we finally got it with a smile.
We wish to thank one and all
Who helped to build this needed hall
And our gratitude will always blend
Together forever and never end.

THE SAD TAlLlE UHF DR. lRllSlKallT
Among the hills of Deadman's Gulch stood a dark forsaken mansion.
Through the trees and weeds surrounding the dreary house, a dim eerie light
showed in the study of the old mansion. A poor wretched man, disfigured
and old, sat hovering in a chair while two accusing figures bent over him.
Meanwhile, from a desolate mountain region came a blood-curdling
howl, which was interrupted by a shot in the night and then, silence.
After a while, two slinking figures came stealthily from the old mansion,
Footsteps sounding farther and farther away, faded into the night.
Found the next morning, slumped in his rocking chair, was Dr. Risk-it,
shot through the heart.
