HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING. THIS BUILDING IS THE NEWER BUILD-
ING OF THE GROUP AND IS FOR GRADES 7-12. AND ALSO
CONTAINS THE GYMNASIUM. BUILT IN 1922.
Mount Gilead has had an established school since l853,
when the first union building was erected. Previous to this
time a small grammar school was conducted by Mrs. Henry
Shedd in the George Cross home. The original union build-
ing was torn down and a new one was erected. The new one
that was built, is still used as the elementary school building
but was originally a combined institution with seven rooms
used for elementary training and one for high school. This
building is the oldest building of the four that are now in
use: it is sixty-eight years old.
ln l905, a new high school building was erected. This
building is still used for the music department, Vocational
shops and special classes.
ln 1922, the building which is now used as the high school,
The school campus has about 16 acres, in which are in-
cluded a baseball diamond, football field, swimming pool,
tennis and badminton courts. These excellent community
facilities were sponsored by the Mount Gilead Kiwanis Club.
Mount Gilead High School is a member of the North Cen-
tral association of schools. This means that the credits of any
Mount Gilead graduate would be accepted in the universities
and colleges of the neighboring states. It is necessary for a
school to achieve high standards of accomplishment and
meet the strict rating schedule set up by the North Central
Association in order to be eligible for this honor.
The curriculum of Mount Gilead High School is organized
into specific branches of training to fit needs of a Variety of
students. There are courses offered as follows:
College Preparatory, Commercial, Vocational Agriculture,
General Academic, Vocational Home Economics, Industrial
Arts and Mechanics.
The Music Department has expanded during the past
year so that in the future students may be able to earn two
units in music, to be included in the sixteen academic units

The bell rings! Students enter the auditorium, with the
strains ot band music beating in their ears. Each class as-
sembles in its appointed section and joins in the singing of
"America," "God Bless America," "America the Beautiful."
The assembly program for the-day follows the group singing,
led by Mr. Hard.
Two outstanding programs this year were the Hi-Y Christ-
mas program, and the Girl-Reserve services each morning
of Holy Week.
Almost all the students will agree that our best speaker
of the year was Mr. Arthur Horrocks of the Goodyear Tire and
Several programs, consisting of music, plays, and read-
ings, were student-planned. Others were presented by var-
ious classes, including the girls' and boys' physical-education
classes and the public-speaking class.
There were two exchange assemblies-Edison and Mans-
In addition to the regular assembly programs we had
three full-length picture showsA"Swiss Family Robinson,"
loe Brown in "The Gladiator," and Arthur Lake in "Tuttle-
Tuggerf' A very enjoyable noon dance was also sponsored
by the Student Council.
As a grand climax to a year of educational and cultural
programs, comes Senior Day, which is always an uproar of
confusion from start to finish.
Another year of interesting assemblies ends and contrib-
utes to the history of Mount Gilead School.

The Iunior Band is composed of pupils from the fourth
grade to and including the ninth grade. The purpose ot this
organization is mainly preparatory so that there will be a Well-
trained group ot band members to replace Vacancies in the
senior band With a minimum of adjustments. This is an assur-
ance that there will not be a slump in the performance quality
of our marching and concert band. At the present time, there
are twenty to twenty-tive students in the Iunior Band, training
under the direction ot Mr. Hard, who will supply this needed
quota. Students who are yet in the tourth grade have separate
training to prepare for entrance into the Iunior Band. This
system provides for a steady source of Senior Band material
at any time. At least tour ot this preparatory group will grad-
uate to marching and concert band status by Iune.

The a cappella choir, rounding out its first year as an individual organization,
has made great strides in musical accomplishment. Practicing daily, members
really earn the half unit of credit allotted by the State Department of Education
for this course. Adjustments were, of course, necessary in this first year in order
to achieve the balance demanded by such an organization, even to the extent
of using several girls for tenors. Progress was fast and positive, making pos-
sible the entry into State District Music Competition at Capital University and
also participation in the Annual Musical Festival held at Crestline, Where an
evening of music was climaxed by a concert by the combined choirs of the
three-hundred voices from Crestline, Shelby, Upper Sandusky, Bucyrus, and
The choir robes used in the picture were loaned by the churches of Mt.

Of the fifty-four students taking typing, approximately
twelve are taking it for personal use only, and the remainder
expect to use it vocationally.
Other things besides shorthand, bookkeeping, and typing
go into the commercial work. Ten junior and senior girls
have worked in Mr. Farrar's office this year, adding prac-
tical experience to the class knowledge.
Several others have acted as personal secretaries for
teachers, doing typing and mimeographing. Members of the
Gong staff have done the typing and mimeographing neces-
sary for the publication of the Gong.

The M Club is composed of boys who
have earned their letters in participation
in any sport in Mount Gilead High
School. Every year the M Club publishes
a book of basketball rules for sale at
games. This is accomplished by ads
from local merchants. This year, the
club set up an Athletic Council which in
turn set up rules and regulations for bas-
ketball players. The rules were strictly
enforced and carried out very success-
fully for the first time in many years.
Coach Hopkins acts as advisor for the
club and gives advice to the fellows
when and where they need it. This club
builds morale and arouses school spirit
throughout the school year.

Mi. Gilead High School
May 25, 1942.
Why have We changed the Mizpah? Well, to begin With, all through our
school lives our class has had the reputation for doing things differently, so We
of the l942 Mizpah staff could think of no more appropriate manner of ending
our high school career than by publishing a year book in an entirely different
style. To accomplish this it was necessary for us to cast off all traditional re-
straints of other year books that We have seen including Mizpahs of former
The idea of this book is to convey to anyone interested in the Mount Gilead
Schools, an account of the interesting events of the past school year and the
life about the campus.
This story has been told by the use of a carefully-planned series of photo-
graphs and captions. The advertisements have been worked out so thatthey
are included as a regular editorial part of the book instead of in the traditional
disjointed style so commonly used in year books.
The idea of telling a story in photographs is a modern trend used by many
industrial concerns and universities as part of their promotion campaigns. We
felt entirely justified in publishing a year book in this style because We consid-
er the Mount Gilead Schools to be an institution that deserves such recognition.
This book operates on a close-margin, non-profitable basis, and is entirely
financed by the subscription of advertising space and the book itself.
ln finishing this letter of explanation, I Wish to thank the very cooperative
staff l have had, and everyone else who has played a part in the production
of this, the twenty-seventh Mizpah to be published in Mount Gilead High School.
