I DIAN'S GOLF TEAM REPEATS AS MOC
Although Mount Gilead entered the
season as the favorite to repeat as con-
ference champion, few schools were
content to just hand the Indians the
title. Big Walnut, Marion Catholic,
and North Union all had very respect-
able squads, and the Wildcats nailed
a loss on the Indians in their Brst match
of the season. It wasn't a very pleasant
experience at the time, but as it turned
out, it probably was a blessing in dis-
guise. Now the Indians had to be at
their mental and physical best for each
match or relinquish the coveted crown.
The team closed the season with nine
consecutive conference victories, a
MOC tournament win, and were
crowned league champs for the second
consecutive year. Other highlights of
the season were non-league wins over
Mansfield Senior, Ontario, Delaware
Hayes, and Columbus Watterson. The
Indians finished in 2nd place in the
sectional tournament, Sth place in the
district tournament, and with an 18-3
season. The team also set a new school
record score of 148.

I DIANS TIE
PLACE I OC
With the Mount Gilead Indians being a leading con-
tender for the MOC basketball championship, local sport's
fans showed renewed in the game. Under the leadership of
their new coach, Dale Creamer, the Indians rolled to a
10-9 season record, and posted a 5-2 record in MOC action.
Highlights of the season were victories over Wynford, Buck-
eye Valley, Pleasant, and teams in the Cardington Holiday
Tournament. The showdown game in the MOC race pitted
Mount Gilead against cross-county rival Highland for the
league co-championship. Unfortunately, the Indians lost
the game by a disappointing four points. The defeat put
Mount Gilead in a 2nd place tie with Buckeye Valley in the
MOC. Special recognition went to several players on the
team. Junior Kent Baker was named Captain of the All-
League 1st Team, selected to the Coaches' All-District
1st Team, the Coaches' All-District "Player of the Year",
AP and UPI All-District 2nd Team, AP and UPI All-State
Special Mention. Rick Bending was named to the All-
League lst Team and the Coaches' All-District 2nd Team.
Co-captain Chris Kubbs won the team's Scholastic Award.
David Brown was recipient of Marion Power Shovel's "Dig
In and Do It Better Award". Jerry Cooper was named the
team's leading Defensive Player. Kent Baker led the Indians
in scoring, rebounding, and freethrow percentage shooting.

CHEERLEADERS COMPLETE VERY
At the Homecoming Game, neither rain, snow, nor sleet stops the Mount
This year's Cheerleaders were made
up of two separate varsity squads, a
football squad and a basketball squad.
This was to give more girls a chance
to get involved. The Reserve and Fresh-
men squads completed the cheerleading
corps. Besides doing the regular projects
such as earning money, holding pep
rallies, decorating the school, and
cheering at games, the cheerleaders
performed some outside activities.
They took on such tasks as making
pillow cases, decorating the downtown
monument, baking cakes, and the ever
popular decorating houses. Being a
cheerleader is a lot of hard work and
not everyone can imagine all the time,
energy, and effort put into it. But ask
any cheerleader and they will say that
it all pays off when you see the excite-
ment of a crowd or the happiness of
your team when the game is over and

FHA COMPLETES MANY PROJECTS
The F.H.A. started the year off with a new summer
program. It was decided to hold one activity per month.
In June, members went to Cedar Point and although it
rained, it didn't dampen the girls' enthusiasm. A canoeing
outing to Mohican State Park was July's activity. It didn't
rain that day but most of the girls ended up getting wet
just the same. To end their summer program, the girls went
to the Ohio State Fair where they were in charge of the
Child Care Center. With the new school came new mem-
bers and initiation which was fun for the old members. One
of the big annual events is the FHA-FFA I-Iayride which
was held the last of October. Holiday activities were a piz-
za party, Christmas caroling, and a Christmas Party with a
gift exchange. In February, the club held a candy rafie
and observed FHA Week. April was a busy month. Some
members attended the year's second County Rally and FHA
served at the FFA Banquet. In May a Recognition Tea was
held to give awards to FHA members for outstanding work.
Also new officers for the coming year were installed. To
end the year, a picnic was held at the State Lakes.
One of Fl-IA's many projects this year was the raffle for a
box of Valentine candy.

FFA INCREASES IT
FARMI G PROGRAM
Activities of the Mount Gilead Future Farmers of Amer-
ica in this school year have been educational, ambitious,
and enjoyable. The chapter has been involved in several
new undertakings this year. Twenty-Eve acres of corn were
planted on land in Edison and irewood was cut and sold as
a means of enriching the chapter's treasury. As a commun-
ity service, the chapter initiated an automobile safety pro-
gram at the high school. After the election of new officers,
the new oficers attended a seminar at Ashland High School
to learn more about the duties of their respective oidices.
During the year, the Mount Gilead Chapter entered teams
in Soil, Wool, Agronomy, and Livestock Judging Contests.
In April Tim Cover and Dale Howard represented Mount
Gilead at the 1976 State FFA Convention. in Columbus.

KEY CLUB SPONSORS FACULTY
This year Key Club has become a full-fledged and
operating organization at Mount Gilead High School. Key
Club's members have taken part in many school-wide
activities. As a service to the student body, Key Club
assumed the responsibility of posting the weekly list of
school activities on the high school bulletin board. The
Club's biggest undertaking was to sponsor a basketball game
between the faculty and the Columbus 6ers. The game was
well attended and enjoyed by the student body and public
even though the faculty team was defeated. Members of
the local Kiwanis Club are to be commended for their help
in getting Key Club organized and operating.

STUDE T COUNCIL PO OR
Determination and success best describes this year's
Student Council. Led by President Anne Whiston, they
took on the task of holding at least one activity each
month. Some of these activiiies included sending oflicers
to camp, sponsoring the Homecoming parade and dance,
a movie for the student body, the Holly Prom dance, a
shirt sale and much more. One of the biggest activities
was mini-couises. The mini-couises were held for three
days before Easter vacation. Taking part in teaching the
different courses were faculty members, students, and
people from the community. The coulses were put to-
gether and organized completely by the Student Council
and advisor Mr. Allensworth. This year's Student Council
did an excellent job of representing the student body.

FRENCH CLUB TAKE FIELD TRIP TO
Q EBEC CITY
French Club members have been very busy this year. To
start the year, French Club was the only club to build a
float to compete with the classes in the Homecoming
Parade. Although the club didn't win the float contest,
their entry was one of the best in the parade. Before cold
weather, the club held a hayride and Wiener roast which
everyone enjoyed. In February, a Mardi Gras Party was
held. French Club invited any interested Jrmio High stu-
dents to attend the party. During Mini-Course Week, French
Club sponsored a Held trip to French Canada. Everyone
who made the trip enjoyed sight-seeing in Montreal and
Quebec City, the French Canadian food, and shopping.
The only dificult aspect of the trip was trying to sleep on
the train. In May French Club members invited their
parents to a Tea featuring French pastries and desserts and
pictures of the Canada trip. So the summer would not be a , 'L
complete bore, club members spent a day at Cedar Point.
All in all, it was a very good year. Costumed French Clubbers enjoy the Mardi Gras Party.

MARCHI G BA D
HAS A VERY
The 1975-76 Mount Gilead High School Marching Band
had a very busy year. Not only did they march during
half-time of the football games, but they also participated
in parades for Labor Day, Homecoming, Veterans' Day,
Memorial Day, and the Bicentennial. A new attraction of
the Marching Band was the Flag Corps. This group of six-
teen girls performed routines when the band participated
in the parades and games. In addition, several of the
marching band members organized the Pep Band which
entertained during the basketball games.

Fall Homecoming was not a one day celebration. It
started about one month before the game when clubs and
classes started building their floats. On Thursday, October
16th, the floais were judged and paraded downtown with a
bonfire at the school following the parade. On Friday night,
the game was played on a wind and rain swept field. The
team and marching band performed to almost empty
stands. The Indians 13-6 victory over the North Union
Wildcats helped compensate for the miserable weather that
spoiled the traditional Homecoming ceremonies . Lynn
Butterfield reigned as the 1975 Homecoming Queen with
Shari Kreider and Kim Benton as her attendants. Finally,
on Saturday night the annual Homecoming Dance was held
with Rook entertaining .

This year s junior Class Play was a slap-stick spoof of
old-fashioned melodrama entitled A FATE WORSE THAN
DEATI-I5 or, ADRIFT ON LIFE'S SEA. The villian, Cassius
Carstairs, along with his cohort, Cokie Joe, have dis-
dovered that they need only to find a sweet young girl to
pose as Rodney Ramsgate's niece in order to steal the
Ramsgate inheritance. Our heroine, Carlotta Flower, finds
herself in desperate straits when she discovers that robbery,
not kindness, is the reason for her disguise. Murder most
foul occurs as Cassius and Col-:ie do away with Marie, the
French maid, and Rodney Ramsgate. just in the nick of
time our hero, Burgess Lendahand, undercovers the plot,
and all enT:ls well as Cassius and Cokie are carted off to
jail, and Carlotta and Burgess pledge their everlasting love
to each other.
"Now you listen to me, Rodney Ramsgate! "
"Oh Burgess! What is that oder I smell coming from you?" "You asked for this Rodney Ramsgate! "
"Wou1dn't you just love to take me horseback riding, Blu'-
"As sLu'e as my name is Cassius Carstairs there'll be plenty
of dirty work at the crossroads!"
"You villainous snake! I would rather die than marry you,
Cassius Carstairs! "
"When I give the signal, you bump off Memphis. "

"We've got you now Desperate Desmond--alias Cassius "Take that, you villain! "
The Senior Class of 1976 chose "Flowers for Algernon"
as their class play. "Flowers for Algernon", based on the
novel by Daniel Keyes, is a theatrical adaptation of the
movie "Charly. " The play is about Charles Gordon, a thir-
ty-two year old retarded man. Charly's intelligence is in-
creased to that of a genius by an experimental operation
whereby his damaged brain cells are removed and the re-
maining brain tlssues are revitalized. When Charly becomes
intelligent, he finds that people are not as nice as he had
thought. He also runs into other problems including the de-
cline of his own intelligence. At the end of the play, Char-
ly returns to his mentally retarded state.
Charlie finally meets face to face with his sister Norma
Ma, I just want to talk to you. You've got to understand
I'm not the same as I was. I've changed. I'm normal now.
Mrs. Donner offers a simple solution to the problem that
was created when Frank filled the eclairs with lemon me
ringue pie filling.
"You want these back, don't you? I don't blame you. Its
your body and your brain and your life. I don't have the
right to take it away from you. Who's to say my light is
better than your darkness?" Boy, that's a smart mouse'
"Charlie I'm so proud of you. You're accomplishing a life-
time of learning in weeks. "
"Hello, mouse . . . . . He wiggled his nose! Well, if
you're sure he won't multiply, you can keep him. "

Gilead High School for Principal Joe Grifith, he and As-
sistant Principal john Allensworth have instituted several

HIGH SCHGCL HAS MANY EW ACTI ITIES
The 1975-76 school year brought many new changes and
additions to the regular high school activities. One of the
high school's new courses was the Advanced Placement
English class taught by Mrs. Barry. This class for juniors and
seniors is designed to teach students college level English.
The program is a two year course, but senior students only
received one year of Advanced Placement English. In May
the senior students took the Advanced Placement Test. If
they scored well on the test, the students received credit in
college English. The AP Program is an excellent opportunity
for advanced high school students. Hopefully, the program
will be expanded to other subjects at MGHS in the future.
Another of the high school's new courses was Spanish.
This class was taught by Mrs. Jackson, who also was the
advisor of the Spanish Club. Spanish classes proved to be
very successful at Mount Gilead. The high school is for-
tunate to have two foreign languages available for its
students insetad of only one.
Probably the most important of the additions to the high
school's programs is Tri- Rivers Vocational School. Although
Mount Gilead High School students will not attend the
vocational school until next year, student involvement with
Tri- Rivers actually started this year. Student orientation was
held as well as a meeting between representatives of Tri-
Rivers and parents of the students enrolling. The enrolled
students had their transcripts checked to make sure they had
taken all of the high school's required subjects. Summer
courses were offered to those who lacked some of the re-
quired subjects which would not be available at Tri- Rivers.
Finally, those students enrolled signed up for their classes.
Tim Roth does his imitation of Richard Nixon during a skit
in the Advanced Placement English class.
Not only did the Spanish students learn to speak and write
Spanish, they also learned to cook and eat Spanish food.
Guidance Counselor Larry Furniss checks Sara Tharp's class
schedule for Tri- Rivers joint Vocational School.
Queen Peggy Sutherland Qrightj and senior attendant Cindi
Curts wait in the cafeteria before the game begins.
Mr. Stambaugh signs students up for study hall during
scheduling in the gym.
Among the new sports related events was the Basketball
Homecoming in February. The festivities included a dance
sponsored by the Thespians and the crowning of the queen,
Peggy Sutherland, and her court. Of course, the best part of
the evening was the Indians' victory over the Marion Catholic
Irish. Hopefully, Basketball Homecoming will become a
MGHS tradition just like Football Homecoming has.
Even the way the students signed up for their next year's
classes was changed. Instead of making out their own class
schedules and having the student council members sign
them up for their classes, the students had to sign up with
their teachers. For example, if a student wished to take
Vocational Agriculture, he had to sign up with Mr.
Galleher. All of this took place on February 27 in the
gymnasium. Next year's seniors were permitted to sign up
first, then the juniors, sophomores, and freshmen.
One of the most interesting of the yeai-'s activities was
the basketball game between the Columbus 6ers and the
Mount Gilead faculty. Although the 6ers defeated the
Faculty, the game was exciting and proved to be a great
money-making project for the Key Club who sponsored

TO THE HIGH
Mount Gilead High School held its fourth mini-course
week in April before Easter vacation. The course offering
to students this year ranged from pizza making, Italian
cooking, and cake decorating to knitting, judo, and
gymnastics. Once again a group of French students took a
five day field trip to Montreal and Quebec City during m' i-
course week. Most students agreed it was a very interesting
and informative week.
Students enjoy playing various card games during the student lounges.

GIRLS' SPORT PROGRAM GAINS
ln the past three years, the girls'
varsity sports program at MGHS has
grown in number, size and impor-
tance. Before 1973, the only extra-
curricular athletic activity that girls
could participate in was the Girls'
Athletic Association and its various
activities. Mrs. Cathy Brown, girls'
physical education teacher, brought
about a dramatic change in 1972 when -
she initiated the first varsity gym-
nastics team. Gymnastics has now
been in existence for four years and
the girls have performed exception-
ally well in competition. Girls'
Varsity Basketball and Volleyball
also began in 1972. After recent
legislation ordered equal opportunity
for boys and girls in athletics, the
MOC has broadened its program to
include more girls' sports. This year
girls at MGHS competed in four
varsity sports: basketball, volleyball,
gymnastics, and track.
