A., Columbia University An Appreciation ot the Activities ot the P. T. A. The Mt. Penn Parent-Teachers Association was organized with the follow- ing obiectives in mind: I. 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 efforts as wiil secure for every child' the high- est 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. i The welfare work of the community has constantly been in the minds of the association, particularly af: the Christmas Season. lt is at this time that the Christmas haskets 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 ofhcers of the association, who are a follows: President, Mrs. George Schlezelg First Vice- Curtis Tomlinson: Second Vice-President, Mr. Norman Hessg Secretary, Miss Marian Kremer: Treasurer, Mr. Lloyd Sharetts.

SNAPSHOTS SNAPSHOTS In Retrospect Vifhen we, the wlihirty-ninersf' entered the ninth grade in the fall of 1935, we numbered about 75. Our homeroom teachers were Miss Trostel, Mr. Taylor, and Mr. Larson. That year we showed we were a power to be reckoned with in the field of athletics, winning the interclass basketball, base- ball. and track championships, led by Bill Shellenberger, who had already begun to display his athletic prowess. Vlfe also discovered Egelman's Park in our freshman year and made it the scene of our first "doggie" roast. Our sophomore year saw an increase in social affairs. Our class advisers were Miss Trostel, Mr. Sterner. and Mr. Stutzman. A "doggie" roast was held in the fall at the Tower Hotel, and during the winter the class had its first party in the library. This occasion will linger in the memories of most of us as the time when someone put chalk in the punch, a prank which wasn't discovered' until the bowl had been emptied. ln the spring of our sophomore year we held a dance in the gym with music by the "Stardust Revelersf' This eve-nt was a huge success and added considerably to the class treasury. Sev- eral members of the class also did active work on the staff of the newly organized Penn Post. ln the fall of I937, the class of '39 entered its junior year, larger in numbers and richer in wisdom. This year was marked by increased participa- tion in school affairs by members of the class. An active part was taken in the new Girl Reserves and Hi-Y clubs by many of us, and the staff of the Penn Post was composed almost entirely of "Thirty-niners" at the end' of the year. This year also saw the institution of class government with Russell Roth as presidentg Carl Heim, vice-president: and llse Proger, secretary. ln the spring, we presented a play, "Campus Quarantine," which was a great artistic and financial success. When the members of the class of '39 reported to school for their final year, they numbered 92 and were the largest senior 'class the school had ever seen. The "Thirty-niners' " class advisers during their Final. fling at high school life were Mr. Sharetts, Mr. liaylor, Mr. George, and Mr. Stump. New class of- ficers were chosen at the beginning of the year with Carl Heim as presidentg Bill Shellsjnberger, vice'-president: Dot Moorshead, secretary, and jim Boas. treasurer. On October 7 the class held a "doggie roast" at Egelman's Park, and in December followed up this affair with a dance held' in the school gym. ln the month of December we gave our class play, "Marcheta," which was, without a doubt. the first really large-scale theatrical production ever to be attempted by any group in the high school. Needless to say, the presentation was a success. ln addition to its other senior year achievements, the class of '39 was responsible for turning the Penn Post into a bi-monthly news organ and' an extremely profitable enterprise: and for publishing this yearbook, which we hope will show Mt. Penn High School to good advantage. But as all good things inevitably will, our senior year drew rapidly to a close. The month of May, however, held the two greatest and most im- portant fto usl affairs of the year: the Senior Prom and the Commencement Pageant. The Prom was held at the Reading Country Club in May and proved to be an exciting and extremely successful climax to a year of unforgettable events. The Commencement Pageant. a different type of graduation program was presented May 26, and brought to a close, in a very impressive manner, the high school careers of nearly a hundred young men and women. i A 05 v 4 L fl 'Y 0 IDM 'Q 5- lgw, 'fgf ii 71 mmmqxw s.J QE if 111 fl .E ' IT 0 .tg E Q41 W 1 min, ik -svn 'I 'IFS' '-Q13 N-gm Vu f"' 'V m 'fyigne if M .Egg img, A J' I 4 rl a 1-4! had mm MQW U QM 'M w 99' UIIDERCLIISSIIIEII I n 1 P , 'Q' Z?" ai at J C X! , I' , ,A ftf-' 'lf Tgalzfx...

Penn's Year ln Sports C Tllfi School Year of i938-39 turned out to be an excellent one for Mt. Penn Penn High School s athletic aggregations. . Heading the parade, came soccer: which team, although only finishing in fourth place in its league, had the honor of defeating the Vvyomissing champions on their own field, 3-2, in an exceptionally well-played contest. ,lhe most thrilling game of the season, however, was Mt. Penn's 4-0 shellack- ing of Wilson High on a rain-soaked field with Harold Wanamaker and Dick Heim racking up the counters which downed the Presidents. The players lost to the team by graduation are: Captain Bill Shellenberger, Harold Xvanamaker, Carl l-leim, Harry Hauder, Eugene O'Brien, Bruce Malsnee, Paul Leinbach, Bill Ritter, and' Roswell Hill. Basketball then made its appearance. with the varsity having a success- ful season and finishing in third place in their league, winning I0 games and losing 4. The boys displayed their best form against Mohnton, defeating the Panthers, 33-32, and putting them out of the running for the Berks Scholastic Championship. Those seniors who played their last basketball. for M. P. H. this year are: Captain Bill Shellenberger, Paul Leinbach, Vincent Aulenbach, and ,lames Kass. The l. Vfs came through with the best season anv team could' wish to have, capturing the junior Varsity championship of their league and entering the finals for the county crown. in the playoffs, they defeated the Wyomissing reserves, 32-lS, and the Kutztown V.'s, 36-25, to garner the Berks County junior Varsity Championship. The girls' basketball team also finished with flying colors, annexing the championship of their league by dint of exceptional. play throughout the season, and a 30-l9 victory over ilvlohnton. The lassies will lose the services of Captain Betty Brown, Martha Ritter, and Sarah Bressler, through graduation. The track team, at the time of this writing, looks like one of the best, if not the best, that Mt. Penn has ever had. ln the annual Shillington Cross- Country Run, the Mountaineer harriers, who are only experiencing their second' year of varsity competition, were runners-up to Birdsboro, the victor. Then in their first track and field contest, a dual meet with Muhlenberg, the Mounts emerged with a decisive victory in which Malsnee, Shellenberger, and Wana- maker starred. Several weeks later, at the Albright Invitation Meet, Mt. Penn took third place. with the aforementioned performers again scintillating, each copping first place in his specialty. 'Witl'. such an auspicious start, it looks as though Mt. Penn's track team will go far this year! The following Senior boys and girls will compete for the last time this year: Bill Shellenberg, Bruce i , l-larold Vlfanamaker, Art Knabb, Roswell Hill. Harold Knechtle, Ken- neth Sell, Bill Ritter, Carl I-leim, Betty Brown, and ,lean Riffert. Malsnee The Mounts are looking forward to one of their most successful baseball seasons this year with a seasoned array ready to take to the diamond. Built around the veteran moundsmen. Bill. Shellenberger and' Harry Hauder, big things are expected of the Mountaineer nine this year. The following are the seniors, who will be making their last appearance on the diamond for Mt. Penn: Vincent Aulenbach, Philip DeTu'rck, Amos Fick, Carl l-leim, Harry l-lander, Harold Knechtle, Paul Leinbach, Bill Ritter, and Bill Shellenberger.
