r 05, LENN QLMQ ! S 01' ZWOI' . . . I95O We have endeavored, in this yearbook, to represent the pro- gram of a play. We have the faculty as our "Directors", the seniors as the "Cast", the underclassmen are the "Understudies", and our clubs and activities are called "Off-Stage". That left us with sports and advertisements. We were stumped, and so you'll find "Sports" and "Advertisements" in a pure state, the last thing in our book. We hope you enjoy our production, and that in future years. as you leaf through its pages, you will recall happy memories of 1950. edicafimz . . The Penn Alma is dedicated to David Zimmerman by the class of 1950, for his wonderful work with us cmd for his sincere interest in us and our activities. l95O Gozzfemfsf I DIRECTORS . .

IQSO I9 OLD' ..M6HZOVy l 00 C After our Greenie and Half-baked years in the seventh and eighth grades. came the dawn of a bright new future for us as Freshmen. Basketball came to mean so much more to us . . . Cwe even remembered what the score was when we went home.j We sat far into the night com- pleting our Pennsylvania History notebooks and were losing our fresh bloom of youth worrying about Latin and Algebra. We all went on a bowling spree that winter. Frosh bowling was really something to behold! We were the biggest and best in the Iunior High: our parties were gay and our hopes for the years to come were shining. We really began to live as Sophomores. SENIOR HIGH . . . absolute magic! Our wonderful seats in assembly were ever a source of joy! We were in Service Club, Cheerleading, Basketball, Y-Teens . . . all things were possible. Our Soph Hop was our greatest occasion of the year 1948. We carried out a new idea, inviting Exeter and Pennside to join us for this gala affair. Those friends we made then seem so much a part of Mount Penn now, it's hard to believe they ever bade sad farewells to a previous Alma Mater. Our Raindrop programs and umbrella decorations carried out an April Showers theme, and we all became experts at making crepe paper flowers. After an afternoon of hard work, everyone agreed that the time had been well spent and that the results were simply wonderful. Our Iunior and Senior years have been the years of golden memories to be cherished forever. In 1949, we realized the proximity of 1950 and we rather reluctantly accepted the mantle of Seniors. As Iuniors we were the I. V. Squad . . . CHAMPS: cheerleaders, key band members: always at the athletic field . . . in fall for soccer, . . . in spring for track. The Iunior play "China Boy", shaved at least seven years off the lives of its cast members, who were in the throes of stage fright weeks in advance of opening night, but it couldn't have been better Cor funnier!j. The Iunior Prom was beautiful and gay with jolly little circus animals hanging on the walls and a whirl of pastel crepe streamers hung from the very top of the ceiling to make our Carousel. We went to commencement and saw even closer our own departure from Mount Penn High, but were not too saddened to enjoy a glorious summer vacation. 1950-Seniors-a Varsity squad of near champions with a heartbreaking defeat at the end of the season. Along with all the crazy fun we could cook up, were our serious problems of college application and the search for jobs. The Senior play, "Seventeenth Summer" brought the poignant realization of teenage problems to its audience and was soundly acclaimed one of Mt. Penn's best productions. Can we describe the twist it gave our hearts to see our last basketball game as students and march for the last time in orange and black? Nor can we do justice to the happy-go-lucky days with a "picture exchange" going on from morning till night: our dancing to dreamy music at our mid-winter prom and at last our banquet and dance at the Country Club. Now there are only days left before we too, misty-eyed and in caps and gowns, shall receive our diplomas and become members of the alumni. 50 qs X .

It happens every day! Just in time to greet the late bell. lst period-You can tell more or less who has what by the expression on his face. Here comes Dolores Priebe, Dolores Sowa, and Joan Hartlinc trying to look wide awake and energetic for gym class. Bertha and Bob-oh well, they always look happy. There goes Tom McGlinn looking very grim-must be chemistry. Joyce Babb and Mary Himmelberger look a little frantic-shorthand! Among the mad rush of students dashing to get a good typewriter we spot Cecelia, Floyd, Delbert, and that typing whiz, Mary Jo Roberts. It never fails-that fresh air fiend "Red" Robertson throws open a window which is promptly closed by Judy Kase. Bell rings for 2nd period-Here come Paul Eisenhower. Gene Line, and Don Hafer of the boys sextette fame happily tuning up their vocal cords. Berna and Carol are deen in conversation. Berna giggles as only Berna can. Dick Matz- for shame!

Dave Ritter putts by in his model "A", closely pursued by Harold Boone. Later "Rookie" Sherman puts in his appearance, announcing his arrival with "ahh ahh" Cthat sound-you name ith.

Kate Rittenhouse "sits" with Joanne while she collects money in the upper hall for the year book. Surrounded by a group of little admirers we see Babb, Bachman, Hawk, Schlegel, and Englehart clad in their familiar gray and maroon jackets, telling about their many basketball exploits. Hungry?-The girls to help you are Ginny, Janice, Corvita, Gloria Weaver, Shirley Steinmctz, and Louise Hauer. Their lunch bags are never empty! Among the crowd at Eck's we spot "Tex" DeTemp1e putting a nickel in the juke box. Sitting in a booth are Babette and Ibra chatting and sipping cokes. Buzz-Amid the rush and clamor of eager UD students at the portals of M.P.H.S. we hear a voice in the rear-it's Lou Levine announcing "Free beer for sale!" Afternoon classes begin-Marilyn Leinbach and Margaret Ludwig, heads close together, seem to be enjoying a private tete-a-tete. Nancy Stump, deeply en- grossed in her German book, bumps into Esther Peterson-German is soon for- gotten. In the commercial department we find Clarence Hafer, Jim Harcar, and Richard Hassler ably assisting Mr. Carson. Ah! that bell for assembly. Marching into the auditorium to the music of our great band, we spy Bob Weller, president, in the clarinet section. Naughty, naughty!-not in the front row boys. And that means you McMullen, Mell, Miller, Monroe, Klink, and Kubovsak! And now-on with the show! Here comes that super-colossal M. C., Sy Youngerman, loaded with jokes. Always a pleasant treat is a song from Miriam Esslinger, accompanied by Ruth Angstadt. Two "little boys" full of tricks, Wess Yeager and Dick Yoder fascinate us with their feats of magic. To complete this enjoyable assembly, Sally Yohn and June Reif- snyder do a dance specialty. Assembly is over and we file out of the auditorium and to our homerooms. A day at Mt. Penn is completed.

That was the theme of the Wcst Reading conference held early in the school year and Mount Penn readily took up the ideas pre- sented there. The biggest project this year was the annual C.A.R.E. drive. The clothing cola lectcd this year far exceeded our quota of eighteen bags.

Always one of the outstanding organizations in the school, the band has com- pleted another successful year under the direction of Mr, William Levan. Their appearance in their snappy new uniforms added much to the spiirt of basketball games, and their drills at half time were looked forward to by all. As always, the highlight of the season was the spring concert, The band showed us just how hard they worked by playing such difficult selections as Zampa Overture, and American Salute March. Even the members will admit it was worth getting up an houi earlier every Wednesday, if it meant playing such a fine concert. With the loss of only seven seniors this year, the band can look forward to another successful season next year.

U The National Honor Society is composed of members cf the junior and senior classes who are chosen by the faculty on the basis of scholarship, leadership, character. and service. These people have met the requirements of the club and so carry out its duties and various activities. This year the Mount Penn group was host to the clubs of Berks County in the Oriental Fantasy, a dance held in our gymnasium. On the more serious side, the club also helped to elect someone to the hall of fame. Mt. Penn's nomination was Alexander Graham Bell.

Pictured here we have the Penn Post staff of 1949. In January 1950, John Esterly became editor and a new staff was organized eliminating the seniors. The Post is published every two weeks. The job of getting the paper together is an interesting, Cand sometimes hecticb one, carried out by a staff of student members with the assistance of Mr. Miller, faculty advisor. Here is the outline of the typical cycle of an issue as it is prepared for printing. Monday articles are turned in and Monday evening the editoral staff Ccomprised of the editor and three associate editorsl, meets to compile the material on hand and dummy the paper-but a staff meeting is much more than just that! It is a mayhem of journal- istic talent in a state of 'efficient confusion'. On Tuesday articles go to the typists, and by Wednesday the paper is rechecked by Mr. Ward. Thursday it goes to the printer to be linotyped. The actual printing of the paper takes place right in the high school building the following Monday morning, and you receive them every other Tuesday. Then this whole cycle starts all over again. Much could be said about the trials and tribulations of a paper and its publica- tions, but we will end with our best wishes for the future success of the Penn Post in 1950. , ' 1 l95O f I f K' e ,zafuzq eanz First row- Mrs. Muck, Debby Babbitt, Sharon Hughes, Peggy Nein, Barbara Sehlegel.

Debating has long been a favorite activity among schools since it brings students together in a pro and con discussion in a democratic manner. The debates are not de- cided in favor of one side or the other but are carried on informally. This year's team was a very fine one and a credit to our school. Mrs. Mack may well be proud of the work she has done with them. If we can teach youth to discuss matters around a table, perhaps we have a better chance for world peace. l95O elzlor Ghorus First POW-'--luill'g2ll'Cl Ludwig, Emma Billington, Marilyn Walters, Audrey Wol- linger.

These songsters proved to us that they were not a group to sing one certain type of songs, for their repertoire consisted of any- thing from the Hallelujah Chorus to Country Style, all rendered with the same quality and perfection usually associated with professional singers. Naturally all this was brought about only by hours and hours of rehearsals, but Mrs. White injected just the right amount of humor, and the entire chorus reported for every practice very willingly. Something new was added to the chorus this year in the form of their attractive blue and gold robes. These add just the right note of uniformity, and are to be con- sidered a very wise investment. We wish to take this opportunity to congratulate this year's chorus for their fine work, and to wish next year's chorus the best of luck, and we hope they have an equally successful year. s l95O eurzior am? .qlZf6l'llI6f2l'!lll6 fboruiea I9 First row-Jane Groff, Glenn Lessig, Pat Baer, Jackie Winters, Connie Fessler, Mary Ann Nein, Barbara Hafer, Jeanette Reitz, Ray Winters, Joan McGrath.

Mount Penn is fortunate enough to have three choruses. The Junior Chorus of seventh and eighth grades and the Intermediate Chorus, of ninth and tenth grades and the Senior Chorus of eleventh and twelfth grades. The Junior Chorus is directed by Mrs. White, while Mr. Dundore instructs the Intermediate griup. This is excellent training for the young people who eventually will become members of the Senior Chorus. 5 O c Sexfeffe and cfeffe lst row-Janice Reifsnyder, Louise Hauer, Corvita Pachuilo, Mrs. White, Nancy Schneider, Audrey Wolfinger, Jackie Kraft. 2nd row-Miriam Esslinger, Donald Hafer, Paul Eisenhower, Ronald Bausc.

Behind the story of every play there is another story--the story of the people in it-the cast-their trouble, their success and humor in the scenes backstage. Will Fred and Judy ever forget those tender scenes that were so hard to get just right? N0 one can say Dick Matz wasn't a versatile man on the set, filling in for every- one who was missing-and his "line" in the play-Dick you were a sensation! There's nothing quite like an exposed prompter to add to a play-Pete gave that curtain quite a tug at rehearsal and there in plain view was a prompter! Of course, there were the usual mixed up entrances and exits and missed cues that had to be ironed out. It's doubtful if anyone would have survived if it hadn't been for refreshments bought at Eck's. Pity the bell ringer-thank goodness the telephone and the door got straightened out before the final performance. And, of course, no one will forget Mrs. Henderson who was always therewpatient and competent when everything seemed in the worst kind of jumble. Thursday found thirteen mighty shaky seniors. Wednesday's rehearsal had gone pretty good but ohhh that opening night still to come! If they were shaky on Thursday, they were nervous wrecks on Friday. The pass word in the dressing rooms-"Oh, am I as could be with their complexions in various a basketball player say, "Is my makeup all on November eighteenth.

Probably notg but if you saw the final performance, you shared some of that fun with them. be expected, but upon looking back at the efforts, it is not those trifles that are recalled. Of course the cast had all the little arguments and disappointments that are to More pleasant memories crown past difficulties. We will remember the evening re- hearsals because they were the most exciting, and entirely enjoyable. In the darkened school, before an empty auditorium, there was practice, practice, practice! And we must not forget to mention the people behind the scenes. They are really the unseen heros of any production, who help to preserve sanity in time of stress. The prompters carried out cues and ran errands with an ever willing attitude. We shall never forget the experience, nor the person who helped us more than we can say. None other than the able director, Mr. Claude A. Dundore. As a last thought we say . . . if you ever see a member of the cast on the street, go up and say to him, "You'd better watch him Walt . . . he's slippery!" If you come out of that alive, then by all means come see the Senior Play next year.

Remember their little "I am one" badges that had everyone asking ques- tions twhieh was just what the girls wantedl? The president, Genny Homan, and her very capable cabinet, consisting of Ruth Angstadt, Miriam Esslinger, Louise Hauer, Alice Najarian, Peggy Nein, Louise Robert- son, Sandy MeComas, Barbara Evans, and Marilyn Walters, worked hard to present the girls with very interesting meetings.

All Y-Teens know the old story about all work and no play, and so to remedy this tsituation they held a Bubble Dance. This dance combined service with pleasure, for admission that night was one bar of soap to be sent to Europe. Perhaps the event the senior girls hold closest to their hearts was the Senior Farewell Party held at the end of the year. This was the last activity of the year, and with it they bid a fond farwell to a very happy year as Mount Penn High Y-Teens. 1950 , C 'UIZZOI' eem First row-Yvonne Thunich, Delores Wcntzcl, Mary Lou Klink, Jane Groff, Nancy Yoder.

Every game found the boys in there fighting with the teamwork which makes for a really great team. Let's take a brief trip back through the season and try to capture the exciting moments and record them in this book to help us remember in future years. The season began with three practice games-Sinking Spring, Mohnton, and Wernersville, all taken by the Mounts with great ease. Our first league game was with Hamburg, a new-comer to the Central Division. This game set the team out on a five game winning spree, adding to their list of victims West Reading, Birdsboro, Boyertown, and Muhlenberg. Remember that Muhlenberg game? That was the night Mike set a new individual scoring record for the school by racking up 27 points. This brings us up to the Christmas vacation. Did I say vacation-what about the Alumni game? This was our first taste of defeat. The game was nip and tuck all the way, but in the waning minutes the alumni fought with all their might and pulled ahead to a 45-43 victory. During our first week back at school the team faced two real tests. The first was the home game with Kutztown, county champions, of the 48-49 season. The team went onto the floor minus the services of Jim Babb, who was sidelined with an ankle injury. Babby, you remember had chalked up 84 points in four games and was leading the league scorers. As it turned out, we had nothing to fear. Al capably stepped into J im's shoes, and the Mountaineers romped to a 53-35 victory before a jam-packed house. This put Mt. Penn in a tie for first place with Wilson. On Friday night we traveled to Wilson, and found our first league defeat in store. The Prexies' tricky court, plus a team definitely out to beat us, humbled the Mounts by a 55-50 score. The team must be commended for their spirit. They never cnce gave up, and, even in the last minutes of play, threatened to tie the score several times. Not discouraged by one loss, the team snapped right back into the winning column the next week by emerging victorious over both Wyomissing and Shillington. Meanwhile, much to our delight, Wilson traveled to Kutztown to be beaten by the Cougars. Now Wilson, Kutztown, and Mt. Penn were in a deadlock for first place at the end of the first half. It was decided that Wilson and Kutztown should battle it out on our floor, K-Town won the the game and we were scheduled to face them the fol- lowing Thursday on the Northwest court. The halls really rang. Remember how we would suddenly burst into a cheer as wc walked through the halls. the snappy new songs composed just for that game, and how the rafters shook at the special pep meeting? 'ii' so Loaf Our omzfaizzeers Even a bus strike couldn't keep the Mt. Penn rooters away from this game! The evening got off to a rousing start when the J. V.'s won their sweet revenge by coming up from behind and defeating the Baby Cougars, first half champs, and previously un- beaten. Then the varsity came on the floor. Their tricky passing, careful shooting, and excellent teamwork made it impossible for Kutztown to stop them and they ran up a 40-30 victory. For the next four games, including one with Mohnton, Western Division champs, the boys proved they were championship material, overpowering West Reading, Birds- boro, Mohnton and Muhlenberg . Then came that fateful trip to Kutztown. The Cougars were set. to avenge their two previous defeats, and once they got started there was no stopping them! We came home that night on the short end of a 67-34 count. After that, the boys got back on the winning list again, and we watched them chalk up victories over Wilson, Wyomissing, Shillington, and Hamburg. That. Shillington game! Our last home game, the last time the boys would play together on the home floor. Remember how we sat on the edge of our seats during that whole game watching the much improved speed boys give our team a real fight? We'll never forget Sy's set shot in the last minute-the shot that enabled us to squeeze by them 49-47! Buddy finished the regular season in real style by coming through with 32 points at Hamburg, breaking Mike's record set earlier in the year. This seemed to be a year for setting records. Not only two individual scoring records, but also the entire first string, Mike, Buddy, Babby, Jim, and Sy, all scored well over 100 points apiece, a very unusual feat. Now we had to get ready for the big game with Kutztown, the second half champs. This game was to decide who was to receive the league championship. Again we put our brains to work-composing songs, writing cheers, and making signs. That. big sign we hung in back of our cheering section left little to the imaginat.ion - WE WERE FROM MT. PENN!! How can we forget that sinking feeling, as Kutztown pulled farther and farther ahead! But anyone who saw the game will remember that although losing by a con- siderable margin the team never stopped fighting until the last gun sounded. Congratulations are in order for both Mr. Zimmerman and the entire squad. It took a truly excellent team to beat them, and although they have no banners to prove their success, the example they set in team and spirit will long be remembered by all who saw them play, and especially us, their classmates. They taught us the true mean- ing of "Sportsmanship . . . the will to win, the way to lose." l950 n N- ,ff . X I I If if -rg 'x , Y? ! Nw 4134...-4.4.... . . 7' Nr fy i fg 0 gd.

Although the Junior Varsity Basketball team took no championships, and won no titles, they played a first class brand of basketball. In the first half of league competition they won all their games except the home game with Kutztown. They lost this game by only two points, and the game gave them the runner up spot in the first. half standing. Mount Penn and KLltZt0Wll'S Varsity teams ended in a deadlock for the first half of league competition. In a play-off game, on the Northwest Junior High court, the two J. V. teams met in a non-titular preliminary game. The Mount Penn team won by a de- cisive score. This game did give the team a moral victory, and proved that they still had the ability to win the second half, and perhaps even the county crown. They started off the second half at full stride, but due to injuries to many of the regulars, they lost a few close games. When there was no mathematical possibility ot' the team winning the second half Coach Bierley moved up some ninth and tenth grade players to the Varsity team. The prime purpose of Junior Varsity basketball is to build players for future Varsity teams. The ability that these young boys showed in the games in which they participated, gives us the promise of many good basketball teams in the near future. 50 es ulzior Slfiqlz .faskefbaff Ii'1cclii1gfl'ctci' llcrsh, John Cznnpficlcl, Bill Lountzis, Bruce Young.

The team was in all ways "on the ball". Their coach Mr. Purnell gave them a preat deal of helpful advice which improved their game tremendously. The first game of the season with Shillington put them on a down hill start when they lost 8-2 but they came back fighting to beat West Reading 8-5, Wilson 10-1, Wyo- missing 6-1, Shillington again 8-4 and another repeat win over Wilson 6-4. Their spirit of cooperation and good sportsmanship carried them through a very :.zveeessfuI season. I95O- occer ' cam lfirst l'0W-A-R0l7f'1'l McMullen. Tom Mctllinn, Dick Seiz.
