" ALL THE WORLD ' S A STAGE, AND ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN MERELY PLAYERS. " As You Like It, Act II, Sc. vii. Forget the realities of life for a moment, and con- sider yourself a player in a huge drama. The theatre is your own Mount Carmel High School. The many scenes in this great production are both varied and interesting, and in the course of time, you will play many parts. Any drama must have directors, stars, understudies, supporting actors, " angels, " and back- stage hands, and this is no exception. Everyone has a role in this production, and no matter how large or how small it may be, it is important that, if the play is to be a " sell-out, " everyone must do his best work at his part. Under the capable direction of your faculty di- rectors, you will gain experience and knowledge which will aid you in achieving your highest hopes and aims. in this play, as in any drama, there is growth, struggle, and development. But along with these, there is accomplishment, and when the curtain falls on the final scene, you will feel as though you have done your part to help the show go on. PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION DIRECTORS CAST SCENES FROM THE PLAY SUMMARY OF THE PLAY ACTIVITIES SPORTS MUSIC HONORS STAGE HANDS " ANGELS " VedcMted « FRANK COOMER Cheerful, loyal, a very rare example of moral courage . . . these were only a few of the qualities that make Frank Coomer unforgettable. Those who knew him casually, honored him; those who knew him and understood him, admired him; and those to whom he was a close friend, loved him. His great faith in God led him to the fulfill- ment of his highest aims. Although Frank Coomer has passed away, his memory shall live forever in the hearts of many. With these thoughts in mind, we, the Sibylline staff of 1 955, dedicate this yearbook to his memory. ScwtW o S CucaXcoH Left to right: H. Berry, H. Alka, J. Zimmerman, W. Brubeck, F. Nash, M. Bare, H. Smith. Through the efforts and the careful consideration of the Board of Education, the educational policies of M.C.H.S. are maintained. At their monthly meetings, they discuss the many problems which arise con- cerning the functioning of the school and its activities. HURLEY GOULD Before being elected to the office of Wabash Co.

Always cheerful and efficient, they write announcements, type letters and tests, issue passes and absentee slips, plan the schedules of all members of the student body, and take care of all correspondence and money matters concerning M.C.H.S. and Community Unit No. 348. Someone once said, " If you want a good job done, ask the busiest people to do it. " This is certainly true of our office worker s, who do a wonderful behind-the-scenes job. aculCtf " Time out for coffee. " " Let ' s talk it over. " The directors of this great production deserve an extra round of applause. Cheerful, likable, always ready to aid us, the faculty makes it possible for our school to function smoothly.

With a feeling of delight and sorrow, we the seniors, or the stars of this great production, have played our command performance. We are now on the threshold of a new and different drama, one through which each of us will take different parts while striving to attain our goals and fulfill our hopes and dreams. There is a certain delight when the curtain falls on our last performance at our Alma Mater, yet there is sorrow also. No matter how far we may stray, these carefree days will never be forgotten, because our minds will wander back, time after time, recalling the many scenes which meant so much to us. These last four years have been years of training, preparation, and accomplish- ment, and now at the climax, we look back and realize that time has passed much too quickly, leaving us with the pleasant never-to-be for- gotten memories of our high school days. The last hour has come. First a brief moment of caps and gowns, then a diploma, and finally, to the melodious strains of Pomp and Circumstance, we, the stars, take our final bows as the curtain falls on our last performance at Mt. Carmel High School. James Abel Mt. Carmel High School 1, 2. 3, 4. Charles Agree Basketball I, 2, 3. i; LeMerman 3, Football 3, 4; Letterman 3, 4; Track 1, 4; Letterman 4; " M " Club 3, 4.

We, the juniors, as the understudies of this grand production, were caught in a whirlwind of fun, cares, and responsibilities. In an effort to make this performance a memorable one, we lost no time in begin- ning our endeavors to achieve this aim. A football game never ended without leaving a group of loyal juniors completely exhausted from countless trips up and down the stadium steps with cokes and candy bars. Selling at basketball games also proved our endurance along with the selling of magazine subscriptions. All of our struggles were made toward one goal— that most important and unforgettable event during the junior year— the prom. Anticipation of the fun-filled night gave us an incentive to work harder than usual. All of our efforts were rewarded when the great night came and went in a swirl of confetti and scented flowers. In an attempt to prove ourselves worthy of our new office as upperclassmen, many of us have held responsible offices in our classes and clubs. At the end of a busy, but completely satisfying year, we realized that we had accomplished much to be proud of, and in looking back, we could recognize this year as a profitable and mem- orable scene in this great play at Mt. Carmel High School.

Overflowing with zest and confidence, we, the sophonnores, plunged into our second year as supporting players. Having established a repu- tation for pep and enthusiasm, we were determined to live up to our reputation. With one year of school experience behind us, we began to feel that we were ready to take on more responsibility and to carry a bigger share of the burden. Many of us took an active part in the vari- ous extracurricular activities. After many experiences, both pleasant and unpleasant, we began to find ourselves capable of meeting and solving new problems and began to lay the foundation for the way of life to come in our future years at Mt. Carmel High School.

Within a few weeks, the blurred impressions began to clear up and we finally adjusted ourselves to the activities and traditions which lay before us. We quickly brought our heads down from the clouds, placed our feet firmly on the ground and concentrated on many endeavors which would help to train us to reach our gods. Although we are still inexperienced, we have gained much knowledge during our first year and recognized many of our capabilities.

The men of the faculty really let down their hair, and entertained the audience at the carnival with a slap- stick basketball game. The basketball shoot proved to be a good test of skill and lots of fun for all. " Hit Parade of Fashion " was presented by the F.H.A. in connection with all homemaking classes in order to show the people of the connmunity projects that the girls worked on during the year. Each girl modeled her own sewing project, which was described in detail to the audience by a skilled narrator. 1 f 55 %o K — ' S ' € tc«t CK ant Left to right: J. Beckerman, as Mr. Porter; J.

Carnnel High School, and is composed of members from all classes, elected through home room groups, and by virtue of class offices. Its purpose is to further understanding between the student body and the faculty, and to help plan and improve the facilities and operation of the school. This year the council became affiliated with state and national groups of its kind, thus adding to the knowledge of its members. One of the main projects of the year was the sponsorship of Homecoming festivities, which included the parade, election of Homecoming Queen, and the dance.

Each year the Sibylline staff works hard and fast in order to present to the student body their yearbooks. Under the supervision of Mrs. Barbara Wallace, the staff has tried to make this year ' s book the best ever. In order to raise money to cover the cost of publishing, the staff operated the " Coke " machines, and sponsored the traditional Sibylline Carnival. There was always plenty of work to be done, with pictures to plan and arrange, and copy to be written. Miss Ruth Tennes of the science department, worked hard and long to help us with the photography. But it took the co-operation of the entire staff to make this year ' s book.

English IV, a journalism class, was set up to form the nucleus for the newspaper staff. This group studied various newspaper writing and printing methods, and then directed the production of the paper. A contest was held early in the year to change the name of the paper. Winner of the contest was Rosanna Alka, with the name BLUFF TIMES. A great deal of time was spent in studying various techniques used by other papers, both metropolitan and school, and these things applied to the high school paper. S acA ( aUHCcl Left to right: B.

The main purpose of the club is to promote industrial education. Left to right: R. Wil- liams, T. Spencer, Mr. Wyatt, L. Schroeder, R. Arnold, R. King. Left to right: J. Abel, R. Morgan, E.

The purpose of this club is to give students interested in science, a better chance to learn of current scientific happenings and to perform many experiments on the different phases of science. Under the capable direction of AAiss Ruth Tennes, the members of the club were spurred on to many accomplishments. By selling soft drinks and popcorn at basket- ball games, they vi ' ere able to raise enough money to go to the engineering open house which was held on the campus of the University of Illinois.

Officers for the year were: Alice Anne Hoff, president; Judy Smith, vice president; Carolyn Rapson, secretary; Gerry Rutter, treasurer. During the year, everyone iri the club was given many chances to participate in plays and to give readings in order to better oral speech and recitation. In observation of National Education Week, the club presented a radio skit concerning school citizenship. Another out- standing event was the presentation of the play, " The Outsider, " at the Spring Carnival. At the end of the school year, the annual spring banquet was held, at the Christian Church. At this time, the traditional ceremony of presenting the gavel to the incoming president was held, thus closing a successful year for the club. Left to right: E. Kramer, G.

Its membership is open to all boys enrolled in vocational agriculture and is entirely voluntary. One of the highest aims of the club is to promote both educational and recreational ad- vancement. The members of the club learn how to conduct and take part in public meetings, to speak in public, and to buy and sell co-operatively, but more im- portant than these is the fact that they learn responsibility. F.F.A. members learn the best methods known on farming, and put these methods into practice in daily work on the farm. Participation in grain and livestock contests kept F.F.A. members busy during the school year, but there was still time for combined parties with the Future Homemakers of America, and the Girls ' Athletic Association, and for the annual Father-Son Banquet.

The Future Homemakers of America has rapidly grown to become one of the outstanding clubs in high school. Throughout the year, the club performed many worthwhile tasks in order to carry out the principles of the organization: to further interest and appreciation in homemaking; to encourage the development of democracy and leadership in home and in the community; to work toward good home and family life for all; to promote a growing appreciation of the joys and satisfactions of homemaking. The girls of this organization presented the " Hit Parade of Fashion, " a style show in which clothing students modeled the garments which they made during the year. The FHA girls also captured first place with their float, " Bake Those Wildcats " in the homecoming parade. f » ' Left to right: B. Richardson, J. Fromm, P. Rich, C. Greene, J. Reed- us, W. Gray, E.

Our music department, under the able supervision of " Pappy " Perkins, and his assistant Gene Collins, ended their musical year with its annual concert at the AAt. Carmel High School. Their program v as a combination of many of the ensembles, both instrumental and vocal; of the band, A Cappella choir, and the glee clubs. During the school year, the band performed faithfully and well at football and basketball games. They were led by the majorettes, who also did extra skits with the band. Special events in the community showed the band proving their civic spirit is as strong as their school spirit. The pep band is a small group, which enter- tained often at pep assemblies, with their enthusiastic arrangements of many " pop " and old-time favorites. Programs at school would have seemed dull without the peppy playing of this small, but excellent group. The A Cappella choir, a select group of vocalists from the respective glee clubs, presented beautiful arrangements of religious and spiritual music at various programs throughout the year. Rehearsals were held each week for this group to develop the quality and repertoire which have long made it a popular group, both with the students and the community. Many small ensembles entertained various civic groups in the community, and proved their worth to the department. FRESHMAN GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB - First row: S. Ankenbrand, D. Robson, J. Williams, S.

Since this first chapter over 25 years ago. National Honor Society members have become outstanding leaders both in our own community and in others. Its members have become successful both in the business and professional world. The society was first organized to honor the high school student who could take an active part in school activities, maintain a high scholastic rating, and at the same time, uphold the highest moral standards. There are four principles of the society: scholarship, leadership, service and char- acter. With twenty of this year ' s senior class being elected to this honor, the mem- bership total was swelled to 429. Initiation was a solemn and impressive ceremony, held before the entire student body and faculty, who chose those seniors eligible and worthy of this high honor. The annual spring banquet was held shortly before the close of school. Left to right: J. Sutton, M. Beuligmann, B. Lindskog, B. Ewing. Left to right: B. Stoltz, AA. Gray, M. Tennis, R. Alka. V. i.
