Au Revoir It was grand while it lasted: The joys, the sorrows, the triumphs we knew, The frowning, the downing, the clowning, the spurning, the yearningg Oh please, just for at short, prolonged view! Yes, it was no subdued Utopia: The kicking, the picking, the sarcasm. the critieismg But still in earnest we have developed nostalgia, And onward we trudge with a burdensome "1ongingism." No, we must not complain! To your teachings we must adhere, To make for each one, himself, a luminous name, One that'l1 conquer our persistent foe, fear! So we leave you: in body, not in soul, Remembering the Golden Rule for av clear mind, You have sent us, of '38, out into the world's folds, If only she will be as you have been, kind. To take all and give none would be a bad policy, So to be honest, sensible, and benevolent, we do vow, To say and do all that will not lead to fallacy. We're leaving you with fond hopes and real dreams-now! -Olive McAdam. 1 9 3 8 Penn Alma Class History We, the Class of 1938, are not true historians, but we offer you this, our humble history, with the hope that you may learn of the joys and sorrows that we have experienced. Let us take you back to the good old days of '34-'35, when eighty-one little angels entered the ninth grade. The class was divided into three homerooms, namely: Miss Gring's, Miss Trostel's, and Miss Snave1y's. The boys were still wearing knickers, and the girls had not yet heard the word sophistication. We are proud to say that three of our boys shone in sports that year. At Christmas time the three homerooms held parties, exchanging presents and the like. In March we all enjoyed a doggie roast at Klapperthal. The end of the freshman year found '38 to be a flourishing class, richer than any other, and as dignified as upperclassmen. After three months' vacation a class of ninety-one pupils reorganized in three homerooms under the eyes of male teachers, iwe wonder why?l, namely: Mr. Wentzel, Mr. Toole, and Mr. Sterner. The sophomore year saw many young romances blossoming. The boys became bolder in asking the small things "to be mine." The Soph Hop held in the library gave all of them the chance of showing the prize that they had captured, waltzing to the melodious strains of the "Blue Moon" Orchestra. An event that the biology class enjoyed was a hike to the Suburban Water Works. After an investigation of what makes it "tick", they were given a surprise of refreshments. With the advent of summer, the strain was again relieved, and the members of '38 enjoyed three months of freedom. When September rolled around, we again sensed the essence of school life. As time went on, we were considered intolerable in the eyes of the other classes, but we thought we had attained sublime heighths in M. P. H. S. As powerful juniors, we were under the supervision of four teachers, tit's getting worsell, Mr. Wentzel, Miss Kremer, Mr. Taylor and Mr. Stump. In all, we were a body of seventy-one. The junior organiza- tion was led by Ed Kemmerer with Clem Boland as vice president, Mildred Kline as secretary and Daniel Spatz as treasurer. The main activity that year came on the last day of school, when the class held a swimming party at Green Hills Lake. After a brief vacation, we embarked on a year full of fun. Dignified seniors would not quite describe the Class of '38. If there were any diabolic tricks and dry jokes to be sprung, ours was the class to do them. How well we remember the music box bursting forth with 'tMary Had a Little Lamb", and the day when "Skeeter" Mason came to school with his first pair of long pants! Forget? Never! Our class was divided into three homerooms: Mr. Sharetts's, Mr. Wentzel's and Mr. Stump's. William O'Conne1l was elected president, Grace Hill, vice president, Mildred Kline, secretary, and Sydne Fischer, treasurer. In our senior year we were very fortunate to have Mr. Ward as our new super- vising principal. He helped us willingly with the many problems that confront a senior class. The soccer team was well represented by seniors, nine out of the eleven, when they copped the title for the championship in the Central Division. The members were all rewarded with a banquet and a dance. On December 22 the seniors gave a dance in the gym. Another event that was enjoyed by all was a doggie roast at Egleman's Park. On February 25 the debating team, composed of seniors, won both the debates under the guidance of Miss Ludwig. With thanks to Miss Trostel, the senior play, "This Genius Class History---Continued Business", became a success, and talent scouts were thrusting contracts and pens into the hands of the cast at the drop of the curtain. This year the Hi-Y and Girl Reserves Clubs were organized. Their main activity of the year was a joint affair, the "Spring Swing" Dance held at the Y. W. C. A. on May 14. Dming the monthly class meetings we decided on the class colors, seal brown and goldg the class dower, white gardeniag and the class motto, "Where there is no path, make one." It would be an unpardonable sin to exclude the senior prom and banquet from the mass of activities. On the afternoon of May 24 we left the stately portals of M. P. H. S. for the last time and hurried home to prepare ourselves for the big affair. The dinner dance was held at the Reading Country Club and prove-d to be an unforgettable climax to a year of social events. On Sunday, May 29, we solemnly mounted the steps of the church for the baccalaureate services. Commencement was observed on June 1. Although it was the ending of the class as a whole, it was the beginning of a new life for the individual. Mischievous tricks were forgotten as a serious body of seventy-five students, the largest graduating class in the history of the school, walked up the aisle to end their spectacular high school career. New features this year were the transfer of a mantle to the president of t'he junior class, and the induction of those who were elected into the National Honor Society. Both of these exercises were very impressive. Another feature was a dramatization of an imaginary future given by the seniors entitled, "Makers of Destiny." The most important part of the program was the presenta- tion of the diplomas made by Mr. Howard. As the sun rose on the 2nd day of June, the Class of '38 awoke in a different world with only the fond memories of Mount Penn High School. -Eleanor Steffy.

Penn Parent-Teacher Association was organized with the following objectives in mind: 1. To promote child Welfare in home, school, church and community. 2. To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the training of the child. 3. To develop between educators and the general public such united eiorts as will secure for every child the highest advantages in physical, mental, moral, and spiritual education. The association has always cooperated with the administrative head of the school in providing medical aid and assistance for pupils who were in need of such service. On numerous occasions the association has made life more cheerful for a few of our pupils who are less fortunate than ourselves in many ways. The welfare work of the community has constantly been in the minds of the association, particularly at the Christmas Season. It is at this time that the Christmas baskets are delivered to the needy. Our school and community are fortunate in having an association that has the interest and welfare of the pupils foremost in its purposes. It behooves us, as pupils, to express our sincere thanks to the officers of the association, who are as follows: Mrs. John Walker, presidentg Mr. Charles George, vice president, Mrs. Joseph J. Larson, secretary, Mr. Lloyd Sharetts, treasurer. Seniors' Alphabet A is for Armstrong who is very tall. B is for Brown who's a whiz at baseball. C is for Clem who thinks girls are a laugh.

Penn Alma Mater fTune: "Far Above Cayuga's Waters"J Proudly Waves old Mount Penn's emblem Black and Orange Fair! Floats triumphant in the breezes, No dishonor there. Student days have fondest mem'ries: Comrades here We stand As our troth to Alma Mater Pledge We hand in hand. From thy halls, dear Alma Mater, We, at length, must part, But thy mem'ry shall not perish From a student's heart. Far away on life's broad highway All shall fortune try, Still our loving hearts shall cherish Thoughts of Mount Penn High! Activities Senior Play Left to right: Eleanor Joyce, William O'Connell, Jeanne Aicher, Clement Boland, Elizabeth Shields, Barbara Reed, Warren Martin, Sydne Fischer. Bud O'Connell and Eleanore Joyce were superb in the roles of Mr. and Mrs. George Blodgett, and Jean Aicher was unsurpassable as Aeida. 'The role of Beaumont, a genius at the 'cello, was carried out perfectly by Pete Martin. Clem Boland was "reel" romantic in his excellent portrayal of Dr, John Oliver, and Sidney Fisher, Elizabeth Shields and Barbara Reed were at their best in their respective parts. The play was lauded by everyone as "one of the best." Miss Trostel, as director, and those assisting in ushering, stage setting, and business managing, deserve much credit. We hope Mt. Penn High can present many more plays as good as "This Genius Business." unior Play First row, left to right: Norman Whitt. Louise Zipf, Margaret Everhart, Jeanette Orth, Helen Hafer, William Ritter. Standing: Janet Leinbach, Vincent Aulenbach, William Shellenberger, Russell Roth, Dorothy Moorshead, Roswell Hill fabsent from picturel. On Friday, May 6, the junior class presented a rollicking college comedy entitled "Campus Quarantine". The scene was laid in a sorority house on the campus of a Beverly, California, College. The plot centered about the confinement of the two waiters in the house after one of the girls contracted chicken pox. Miss Elva Ludwig was the coach of the play.

The soccer team enjoyed the best season ever witnessed by loyal team rooters. The members won the championship of the Western Division and received a beautiful trophy for this great accomplishment, It was the first championship soccer team since this sport was introduced in our school. Looking at the record of the "Mountainee-rsj' we find that the team won 7, tied 2, and lost 1. The only setback was at the hands of Mohnton. Coach Hasley and his boys really showed their prowess on the field and are to be congratulated for their cooperation and ability through the entire season. Outstanding for the "Mountaineers" were Captain Arlington Fabian, Richard Sailer, Warren Martin, Austin Brown, Harold Rohrbach, and Bill Shellenberger. Basketball Left to right: Manager William 0'Connell, Harold Wanamaker, Coach Jack Hasley, Melvin Scarlett, Warren Martin, Austin Brown, Joseph Zeock, Clement Boland, William Kase, William Shellenberger, Thomas McDonough, Vincent Aulenbach, Captain Joe Miller. The "Mountaineers" fought their way cleanly and excitingly through a season of thrilling and hard-fought basketball. It was a season which may be truthfully called the most successful campaign which Mt. Penn warriors have waged in the past ten years. One of the outstanding games was the fray in which the "Mounts" defeated Mohnton after the latter had won eight straight victories. Mount Penn is unfortunate this year in losing a large number of basketeers. Those graduating are Melvin Scarlett, Warren Martin, Austin Brown, Clement Boland, William Kase, and Captain Joe Miller.

You Can Believe that you can-and you will not fail, though great be the task begun. Believe that you can-though hard the trail, and rugged the road you run. Have faith in yourself. Just know you can and you're simply bound to dog and never a barrier, bar or ban can keep you from carrying through. Believe in yourself and then go in and work with your heart and soul. Believe in yourself and you'll surely win, no matter how far your goal. There's a marvelous force in the faith that springs from this great and noble thought, by the magic spell of the strength it brings, the greatest of deeds are wrought! Believe in your soul that you will succeed. For as sure as you hold this thought, you will back your faith with the power of deed, till the last hard fight is fought! Aye, hold to that thought and you'll do your part in the Way that it should be done. Just start with a Winner's confident heart, and your battle is really Won! So go to it, boy, and hit your stride, at the crack of the starting gun, and never falter or turn aside 'til the whole long course is run. You may not be brilliant, or clever, or smart, you may not be fast of pace, but if you have grit and a confident heart you'll be there at the end of the race. -The Optimist.
