Penn High School for us will always help us to extend ourselves into a sphere of usefulness to our community and fellowmen. Contents Faculty Seniors Underclassmen Activities Sports Advertisements Q Dedication ln dedicating the Penn Alma to Mr. Jacob Wentzel, our English instructor, we have recognized a personality possess- ing friendliness, integrity, honesty, courtesy, trust, esteem and high intelligence. Mr. Wentzel is a true reflection of all of these distinctive characteristics and qualities and exem- plifies the highest ideals. For many years he has been an integral part of the life of Mt. Penn High School, the Class of 1954, in genuine appreciation of his contributions, find it fitting to give him this place of honor. 5 t S 1 s 5 Roscoe I-I.

The constant use of the Health Room should make us realize how indispensable these staffs are. We should be proud and grateful of the excellent job being done by these guardians of our health. Pennside Our guardians of health at Penn- side are an essential group. Pennside, as well as Mt. Penn, maintains the importance of checking a studenr's health every two years. This is done by giving the pupil a Complete physi- cal and dental examination. If remedial work is necessary, the parents are promptly notified. This emphasizes the significance of these guardians. lLeft to rightj Mrs. Ethel C. Hill, nurseg Dr. John J. Williamsg Mrs. John A. Hibs- chma.n, secretary.

A salute to those who keep our schools in top shape and who are always ready to lend a helping hand to our party and dance plans. Bus Dnver Mr. Nevin Matz, a Pennside teacher, is, without a doubt, one of the best-known and best -liked schoolbus drivers in this vicinity. His cheery 'Top of the Mornin' is, indeed, a wonderful way to start the school year and to begin each school day correctly. ' X 4ijif'Z5" - f 4443. .

Rohrbach Penn Alma Staff Penn Alma Mr. Ward, the director, Suzon Babitt, the coordinator, and Mr. Wentzel, the advisor of Penn Alma Year Book, have put forth every effort in trying to make this issue the best one ever published. Through the united efforts of these individuals, plus the cooperation of the staff which consists of various members of the senior class, a big job was well done. The faculty and business friends also played a very important role in promoting the success of this book. In reflecting upon the many situations that took place in the planning of the Penn Alma, we are reminded of the forlorn looks which so often fell upon Suzon Babitt as she handed out different assignments to be completed over the week-end, and as she made important requests of the seniors. At the same time, we clearly recall those joyous smiles on the staff members' faces as their tasks were successfully completed. We remem- ber, too, the anxiety that existed when there was un- certainty as to whether or not a goal for patrons might be reached. Then, there comes to our minds that great race among the seniors of the different homerooms, working diligently to obtain patrons so that their re- spective homeroom teacher might become the lucky winner of a yearbook which was being offered to him whose homeroom obtained the greatest amount of patrons. hours of combined efforts in securing adsg in writing personals, in photographing students, faculty and other employees, in typing articles and in organizing carefully the contents of the book. Our thanks to all who helped in this annual. Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Character National Honor Society Scholarship, service, leadership, and cha- racter are the qualifications needed for ad- mittance to this honor society, and these are the high ideals the society attempts to main- tain. This term, under the fine guidance of Mrs. Mack, N.H.S. advisor, and the leader- ship of Wilma Rieser, presidentg Cynthia Bartnick, vice-presidentg Leith Souders, sec- retary and treasurer, the club has spent a very prosperous year. The busy members can usually be found on the dance floor attempting to persuade someone to buy a dance ticket, or else a member can be found sitting in room 31, the check room, a new service rendered by N.H.S. After the induction of new members into the society, the club determines how to use the money in the treasury. lt may be used for an educational and entertaining trip or to buy something new for the school.

Printing the latest goings-on with a touch of humor and gossip was the work of the staff, However, most of the work involved in an issue was carried out at an evening editorial meeting, which was advised by Mr. Miller. These meetings, somehow, never did anything for the waistline .... just ask Nancy or Ellie. As for co-editors, you just couldn't beat Emmie and lvlarcie. They certainly did a fine job for which they should be praised. A difficult job but well carried out by the Penn Post staff! Mighty Mount." V 'v ' i -4!

Spon- sored by the Kiwanis Club, this body of sophomore, junior, and senior boys is dedicated to service to the school, com- munity, and church. Mr. Zimmerman acts in the capacity of faculty advisor, and John Diener has completed a very successful year as president. The club has won its district's achievement awards for service. Among the many duties it performs are selling milk every noon, print-ing basketball pro- grams, policing the grade school play- ground, and keeping the school halls and lawns clean and uncluttered. As was mentioned, milk selling at noon is one of the club's duties. Pictured is Mr. Zimmerman showing some do's and don't's of selling milk to Charles Gower and Stuart Severns. ,Pu ws? ' 4 .N X 'W "Cheaper hy the Dozen" r Our special thanks go to Mrs. Florence Lam- son, who directed us, and to all the various com- mittees, stage hands, and prompters, who, through their untiring efforts, made our play a success. We point with pride to our production, "Cheap- er by the Dozen,' adapted from the book by Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. This play is really the story of Frank Gilbreth, an efficiency expert of Mt. Clair, New Jersey, and his attempts to apply his "time-saving rules on motion study' to the everyday life of his family. This light comedy was filled with hilarious antics from beginning to end. T17 We'1l never forget the hustle and bustle of the Children to get to the family "assembly line" when the father blew his whistle, nor the lovable "tricks" of all the brood to sidetrack father's time-savers.

Besides giving their annual concert in May, they took part in the Christmas concert, which turned out to be a big success. Another new addition to the band preformances was the presentation of an hour television show in February. There were also the annual drill- ings at the halves of the varsity home games and the Concert which the band presents each year at the Kiwanis Club. To Mr. Levan goes a round of applause and thanks for all the hard work and effort he exerted to make this year a great success. rl Colorguard Left to right: C. Bartnick, L. Bixler, S. Cutrone, S.

Every Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning the Senior Chorus met for an hour of practice in preparation for the out- standing concerts of the year. Mr. Linn, the new vocal music supervisor of the Mount Penn - Lower Alsace Jointure, made the difficult work of preparing music for a concert pleasant and profitable for the chorus members. Besides the two concerts, the chorus sang in various assembly programs. Last year's all-girl chorus was improved this year by the addition of male voices. Although the boys were out-numbered almost three to one, their voices were powerful enough to blend well with the girls' voices. The combined Band-Chorus Concert in December was agreat success. The program, comprised of sacred Christmas music, was dramatically closed with the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus by the combined choruses, accompanied by the band. The whole program was recorded by a local radio station, and parts of it were broadcast at a later date. The Spring Concert was a fitting climax to the faithful work of the director, Mr. Linn. Mt. Penn Intermediate Chorus As the smallest of the three choruses, sizeis not a criterion for this group. They boast a strong and accurate alto section, and are a hard-working and talented chorus. Under the direction of Mr. Linn, the members presented a series of traditional folk carols at the December Christmas Concert. The lone officer of this chorus is Jean Frick, secretary, who also doubles as librarian. After the spring concert, the last concert in which the Intermediate Chorus participated, the members looked forward to their graduation into the Senior Chorus. M. Dunkleberger, M. Snyder, M.

Penn in the Berks County basketball warfare during the 1953-'54 season. Left to right-Barry Landy, Dave Swavely, Mike Rohrbach, John Diener, Stu Severns, Bob Mantz, Chuck Kachel, Jim Keith, Roger Herbein, Bob Rhein, Charles Gower, manager. The Mountaineers were ably coached by Lloyd Parsons, who was not available when this picture was taken. The 1953-'54 Mountaineers will be remembered as one of the most powerful teams that ever donned the orange and black colors. Playing in the toughest league in the Berks area, the Mounts breezed through the schedule, posting a 16-O record. Such traditional rivals as Kutztown, Wilson, Birdsboro, etc. fell before the barrage laid down at them by the classy Mounts. There is another reason why this team will be remembered for years to come. It was the first Mt. Penn team to win the Berks County title in twelve years. The Championship game against Fleetwood was the most exciting game seen in the Berks area for many a moon. lt wasn't until the last minute of the first overtime period that the Mounts were able to get by with a 53-52 triumph. MOUNT PENN'S BABY MOUNTS CAPTURE SECOND STRAIGHT COUNTY TITL fig- is 'G fi Penn's Baby Mounts in actionin the Berks County Playoffs. ,TY END SEASON WITH 21-1 RECORD Following in their big brothers' footsteps, the J. V.'s also copped the Berks County Championship, their second in a row. The squad marched through the league season without suffering a single loss. The overall record reads twenty-one wins and one loss, the only setback coming from the hands of a powerful alumni quintet. Mr. Bierly has done an outstanding job in shap- ing these tenth and eleventh grade boys into a smooth working outfit. His task was made doubly difficult by the fact that many of the team members didn't even know each other's name at the beginning of the year. Remembering that some of the boys came from Exeter, some from Pennside, and some from Mt. Penn, one can understand this unusual situation. This year's team was Mr. Bier1y's third championship since he came to Mt. Penn six years ago. His teams won the diadem in 1948-'49, 1952-'53 and now, 1953-'54. ln the County playoffs, the Baby Mounts made an exceptionally fine showing by overwhelming Robe- sonia and Perry. ln the first-round game against the Robins, John Kahler led the scoring parade with 18 markers. Since the game was a one-sided affair from the start, Coach Bierly had the opportunity to use all his players. In the second and deciding contest against Perry, Dave Reeder hit for 13 points in leading the J. V.'s to their second straight county title. The game was a very hard-fought contest, and much must be said for the way that the Perry boys handled themselves. FIRST ROW QLeft to rlghtl-G. Stuber, R. White. H. Joseph. SECOND ROW- J. Kahler, B.

Through the leadership of co-captains Barry Remley and Neil Aulen- ' I bach, and the coaching of Gershom Krom, Pennside's Junior High team ll n I 0 r I g finished their season with a record of 10 wins and 3 defeats. Although Mr. Krom will lose four freshmen to Mt. Penn next year, he still has a fine squad of underclassmen to bring him high results. To be a soldier, one must go through eight weeks of basic training. Doctors must spend a number of years as interns before they can hang up their shingle. Basketball is not dif- ferent-there must be a training period. That is exactly how junior high basketball is classified, the basic training of basketball. Here the future stars of the game learn the all important funda- mentals, such as passing, dribbling, and shoot- ing. It is at this stage in their careers that the players must acquire the right mental attitude. Basketball These are the reasons why Mr. Sharadin, the Junior High Coach, has one of the toughest jobs in basketball. The excellence with which he handles this job is evidenced in the fine teams that he has produced. This year's team was no exception. Their style of play, will to win, and good sportsmanship saw them through a fine season. From all indications, many good play- ers will come from the 1953-'54 junior high basketball team. kph Gerhard, G. Cassel, H. Wright. FL'l'?.B FRONT ROW fLeft to rightl - G. Green, L.

' 7 Q 53 Mounts Emerge From Soccer Wars Sports Parade of 1953 - Soccer Highlights As has been the custom in the past, Mt. Penn's Sports Parade is started with soccer. The team partici- pates in the Berks County Scholastic Soccer League. During the 1951 and 1952 seasons, the Mounts were champions of the Central Division of this league. Al- though this year's team was unable to retain the title, the players gave their faithful followers many thrills, besides playing a fast, aggressive brand of ball, The Mounts opened the 53 season by playing host to the purple and gold clad boys from Amity. Mt. Penn's speed and aggressiveness prevailed, and the team hung up victory number one by a 3-0 count. The next game of the card was strickly no-Contest, as the Mounts rolled over a weak Morgantown squad 5-0. At this point in the schedule, the fates intervened and the boys ran into a great deal of hard luck. Theylost three straight games to Birdsboro, Oley, and Amity. The team got back on the winning path again by trouncing Morgantown 4-0. Then came one of the big games of the season, the home game with Birdsboro, In spite of a great show of school spirit by the Mt. Penn Band and student body, and regardless of the determined effort of the squad, Birds- boro was victorious, 3-0. School Spirit in Action: Band Marches at Mt. Penn-Birdsboro Game 3.
