PURNELL The Class of i958 wishes to dedicate their yearbook, PENN ALMA ON PARADE, to Mrs. Robert G. Haag and Mr. William I. Purnell. Their combined efforts have led our class to success in every phase of The school year. We truly wish To thank them for Their devoted service to our class. Mrs. Robert Haag devoted endless hours during and after school in order to create a yearbook which would be more exclusive than previous years. Her wise iudgement aided the co-editors beyond recognition and her keen mind was always alert To help Them in any way. Mr. William l. Purnell is our class advisor. He keeps all class functions running smoothly. Without his business-like methods our class couldn't function a a body. His foresight has kept our class from disastrous de- cisions, and we will always look up to him as our example. Four ALMA MATER. . . Son, John S. Hibschrnan, and father, Mr. John A.

To your right you see the new outside bulle board recently erected, w h ic h fwas a gift from the class of 1955. A shot from Endlich street gives you an idea of the little seen part of the school. This portion will change con- siderably next year when the new wing containing the cafeteria and gymnasium and several new class- rooms will be added. WE AT LENGTH MUST PART" During the school vacation of 1958 the High School will un- dergo a n u m b e r of changes which will change its appear- ance greatly. ln order that you may make 'a comparison after completion, we are showing a few different v i e w s of our school as it is now. The adiacent picture is a view from 25th streetf Pictured here you see the school driveway which leads to the outside gym offices. From 25th and Filbert streets a spectacular view of the major por- tion of our building can be seen. The upper Filbert street entrance attained its fame by admitting all students who serve their school in extracurricular activities. Seven FIUITIIHIETRH Y 1 i y 1 , Y TIUI'I un PHRHIJ ' i !

ROSCOE H. WARD, Supervising Principal Grove City College, B.S. University of Pittsburgh, M. A. Pennsylvania State University A famous architect was asked which of his great accomplishments gave him the most satisfaction. He replied that he was never satisfied ancl that it was this feeling of not having reached perfection that com- pelled him to reach for higher goals. If you will strive continually to achieve greater and greater accomplishments then your life will be success- ful in any vocation you may choose to follow. Best wishes to the Class of 1958. Roscoe H. Ward, Supervising Principal Twelve MRS. JAMES H. SMITH Secretary HE LED US THROUGH OUR HIGH SCHOOL LIFE MR. JOHN A HIBSCHMAN, High School Principal Kutztovvn Normal Franklin and Marshall College, B.S. Pennsylvania State College University of Pennsylvania MISS DORIS LEININGER Secretary "Prepare Today for Tomorrow's Challenge" is the mott of the class of 1958.

My best wishes for success in your endeavors shall be with you always. John A. Hibschman Thirteen IMPORTANT TO THEM IS OUR Open your mouth and say "ahh," take a deep breath, step on the scale! Each student receives a medical examination from Dr. Deach with these accompanying comments. Adhering to the Hippocratic Oath, this de- cided doctor attends to our physical well- being, especially those who are sports mind- ed. MRS. ETHEL C. HILL, R.N. At 9:30 any Thursday morning during October, November, or December, our very capable dental examiner, Dr. Drumheller can be seen entering the school. Anyone standing near the entrance at this time will receive a cheery "good morning and how are you?" H EALTH Fourteen ROBERT DEACH, M.D. Aspirin anyone? Mrs. Hill, Mt. Penn's understanding nurse, carefully supervises our health program. She takes care of all illnesses and accidents and administers periodic ear and eye examinations. JOHN DRUMHELLER, D.D.S. THOSE WHOM WE RELY UPON Probably the most unpopular people in Mt. Penn on a snowy morning are the bus drivers because of their unfailing efforts to defeat the elements. Without their excellent services many students would find it almost impossible to arrive at school. We are grate- ful for this transportation convenience. Our dependable bus drivers, left to right: Mr. Nevin Matz, Mr. Danny Knechtle. . . ll N l ' s -eEq'o's:c- 95 Qi if Fifteen Whom do we call on when mechanical difficulties arise-that's right-our able staff of custodians. Because they are always will- ing to assist us and care for our school, we are deeply indebted to them. Caring for our building are, left to right: Messrs. Franklin Manwiller, Ed Preska, Robert G. Moyer, Maintenance Engineer. Absent from the picture is Mr. William Goodhart. 5runEnr LIP Sixteen Y l N n nn PHRHIJ 1 N ' w 1 3 I 1 X , i Sevemeem Q I N 5 TO LIVE IS TO LEARN MRS. FRED KELLER, B.S. East Stroudsburg Teachers College English, Advanced English, Commencement Speakers. Soft-spoken Mrs. Keller has a philosophy for handling all "empty-minded" students. She counts to ten, and then informs them, "You laugh now, but wait till the end of the marking period." A devoted mother, Mrs. Keller is con- stantly searching for the answer to an everpresent problem- the finding ot a quiet place to work-"What with grandma and all!" MR. JOHN A. ZAJAC, A.B. University of Scranton Latin, English, Junior Classical League. After-school activities are numerous for Mt. Penn's Latin teacher. Gardening is tops on his list of hobbies, closely fol- lowing is the maintenance of a thriving chicken farm. Another pastime of this jovial personality is teaching young men how to correctly help little old ladies across the street. This is done in connection with his new out-of-school activity, that of Scoutmaster.

Nineteen ENTERING OUR SCHOCL MR. JOSEPH A. MILLER, Ph. B. Muhlenberg College World History, American History, PENN POST, Fishing Club. "You can do anything in here, even sleep, but DON'T talk and disturb those who are trying to learn." This is one of the pet phrases of collegiate-looking Mr. Miller. The father of three, he spends much of his spare time casting the fishing line. This commuter from "over Wyomissing way" always has a friendly smile for his students as they file into Room ll for their daily "short and easy" C?t quizzes. MR. LEE R. BIERLY, B.S. Kutztown State Teachers College General Mathematics Supervises Golf, Golf Club. From the depths of our beloved high school, the shrill sound of whistling echoes through the halls. The source, of co u rs e, is none other than Mr. Bierly. Although this tall, friendly individual is well-known for his interest in golf, he also promotes and participates in the development of worthwhile teenage sports and other recreational activities. A teacher must set high standards for his students to follow- a trait which fits Mr. Bierly to a "tee." ll I2 Pointing out a place on the map, left to right: Mr. Explaining a problem in arithmetic, left to right: R. Miller, Instructor, F. Azzolina, R. Buck. Millar, Mr. Bierly, Instructor, A. Pryzbeck, T. Roland. Twenty IS A NEW AND STRANGE EXPERIENCE TO THE 7TH GRADERS MRS. MlLDRED M. LEININGER, B.S. Hood College, Post Graduate Work Albright College Home Economics, Adult Sewing Class. As is the case with many teachers, Mrs. Leininger's chief interest outside of the classroom is her family and its numer- ous activities. In her spare moments she delights in knitting and fancy sewing. MISS JANE MCMURTRIE, B.S. Lebanon Valley General Music, Music Theory, Seventh Grade Chorus, Eighth Grade Chorus, Girls' Chorus, Senior Chorus, Girls' Ensemble, Boys' Quartet. One of the recent additions to Mt. Penn's faculty is Miss McMurtrie, who has created several excellent vocal choruses and groups. Painting and hi-fi occupy most of this musician's spare time. Mt.

She is fond of water sports at the seashore while 'flower gardening and serving are her favorite household hobbies. MR. JOHN M. SEIFARTH, B.S. Industrial Education Penn State University Industrial Arts, Stage Crew, Conservation Club. Since Mr. Seifarth lists gardening, hunting, and fishing as his favorite hobbies, it is obvious that he is intensely interested, as well as an active participant, in conservation. Mr. Seifarth, who is "the man behind the men behind the stage," is always anxious to help any interested boy obtain a start in the industrial world.

"But you have to hold the bow still, while you shoot the arrow!" These immortal words could be uttered by only one indiviolualeour own Miss Geiger. Always ready with advice to the lovelorn and full of fun, this eye-catching individual drives her "hot" Ford from Elverson to M.P.H.S. every day. Besides competently participating in all sports, Miss Geiger lends her talents to the arts and handicrafts field. Respected by all who know her, Miss Geiger has retained the friendship of many Mt. Penn graduates. MRS. ARLENE M. LINDERMAN, B.S. East Stroudsburg State Teachers Health, Physical Education, Girls' Official Club, Girls' lntra- mural Sports. Much of Mrs. Linderman's spare time at home is spent attempting to train her German shepherd, Baron, obedience. An outstanding Hummel, as well as a new German shepherd figurine collection, is the pride and ioy of an exceptionally sports-minded teacher. Besides thoroughly enioying garden- ing and her home during the summer, Mrs. Linderman also gets lots of fun out of teasing Miss Geiger. GYM Learn ng the facts about Cancer are J Bauman S.

East Stroudsburg State Teachers College, Temple University Driver Education, Key Club, Junior Class Advisor. Always in a hurry, hustling through the halls, is alert, civic-and-sports minded Mr. Zimmerman. Gardening is one of his chief interests. CCould this be the Key Club's source of vegetables for their soup'?J Our happy-go-lucky educator also enjoys camping trips, hiking, and teaching Sunday School. Possessing a keen sense of humor, Mr. Zimmerman is admired by every lucky student who knows him. MR. GERSHOM G. KROM, B.S. West Chester State Teachers College Physical Education, Health, Track team, Varsity Basketball. Knowing that exercise is body building, Mr. Krom is con- stantly endeavoring to make men of his boys by prescribing calisthenics. Besides creating a top-notch basketball team, Mr. Krom finds time to participate in the Masons, to study for his Masters Degree, and to enjoy the companionship of his family. One of the fond memories of his students will be the invigorating 32 degree weather as they play soccer in "skins."

Service Club, Science Contest, Faculty Manager of Athletics, Science Club. Deeply dedicated to the facinating scientific world, Mr. Sharetts has iudged at the Lehigh Valley and Montgomery 'County Science Fairs and serves in the capacity of educational consultant for his favorite, the Berks County Science Fair. Puttering in his garden, and making nic-nacs for his friends are the chief pastimes of this thoughtful individual. Many stu- dents will always remember this interesting personality. MR. LAWRENCE E. RICKOLT, B.S. Kutztown State Teachers College Biology, English, Health, Debating team. "Ice cream" tests, window-shattering and ear-piercing lec- tures and the phrase, "it figures" could apply to only one teacher, Mr. Rickolt. One hobby which occupies most of Mr. Rickholt's spare time is flying. His other hobbies include using his home as a laboratory of which Mrs. Rickolt takes a nega- tive attitude and showing students his "war pictures." 2l 22 Are there any further questions?

Bloomsburg State Teachers College, Columbia University Bookkeeping, Business Law, Retail Merchandising. One of the contributions to Mt. Penn's outstanding Business Education Department, is the fine teaching of Mrs. Weber. This educator frequently iniects a bit of humor into her classes.

Rider College, New York Univer- sity, Albright College Shorthand, Typing, Junior Business Training, Secretarial Prac- tice, Junior High Typing Club. Mrs. Latshaw, senior homeroom teacher and one of the senior class advisors, has proved a beneficial addition to the faculty. She has a tender affection for animals and an ap- preciation of music-especially piano. MR. RICHARD C. HAMILTON, B.S. Penn. State University Algebra, Geometry, General Math, Lost-and-Found Depart- ment, Student Council. Mt. Penn is extremely fortunate to have, as a new addition to our faculty, Mr. Hamilton, in the ever-important mathe- matics department. Some students in Mr. Hamilton's classes claim that this soft-spoken individual Ithat's what they sayj uses some rather unusual expressions-one of these being, "l'll be cottonpickedlu 25 30 Learning the fundamentals of business training are, Explaining a bit of Geometry to the class are, left to left to right G Fisher N Toutman P Stallone Mrs. Lat- right: D. Christman, J. McCrudden, Mr. Hamilton, ln- shaw structor.. Twenty-seven SCHOLASTIC BACKGROUND MR. WILLIAM I. PURNELL B.S. Kutztown State Teachers College P.O.D., World History, Senior Class Advisor. Because of the "circumstances" which usually bring a pupil and Mr. Purnell together for the first time, most students seem to fear having anything to do with Room 31. After having him as a teacher, however, they soon find that, except for his "extra" classes, he is one fo the wittiest, yet sincere, members of our faculty. Just like rnost parents, this father of two has teen-agers who like "pop" music and Elvis. His opinion of Elvis, as of all people he doesn't particularly like, is summed up in two words-"no comment." MRS. FRANCES V. FREZEMAN Beaver College, B.A,, University of Colorado Junior and Senior English Mrs. Frezernan, who recently ioinecl the Mt. Penn faculty, originally taught German at Exeter High School. A ceramic- creating enthusiast and avid Xylophone player, she has be- come well-liked by her students in the short time she has spent with us. This is due, perhaps, to her friendly, yet sincere, personality. SI 33 Discussing the Supreme Court of the United States are, Anybody for literature? Left to right: M.

After a busy day at school, Mr. Bishop, the proud father of two girls, especially enioys lust relaxing and listening to his hi-fi set. Mr. Bishop's subtle sense ot humor was depicted when he gave lucky students a surprise Christmas present from him-detention tor not handing in their ticket returns. MR. ALLEN R. SCHUTT, B.S. Kutztown State Teachers College Geography, Service Club, Senior Class Play. "Tall, dark, and friendly." This expression might be a female's description of Mt. Penn's great geographer, Mr, Schutt, while talented, and humorous would more likely be a male's opinion. A tlair for dramatics and a keen sense of humor complete this snappy dresser's personality. Sports, classical music, and artwork interest this "average American male." 34 35 Explaining a math problem are left to right Mr Bishop, Exploring the globe are, left to right: B. Boyer, Mr. R Kotzen C Snyder B Swartz Schutt, P. Perwein, J. Blum. Twenty-nine LEARNING TO LIVE WITH OTHERS MISS JANE S. CUNNUIS, B.S., M.S. Kutztown State Teachers College, University of Pennsylvania American History, Geography, Y-Teens, "l Speak for Democ- racy" contest, Junior Historians Club. Miss Cunnuis, usually attired in Kelly green, which inci- dently is her favorite color, spends her spare time reading mystery stories or working with the Y-Teens. She enjoys promoting romances between her "cherubs" and driving her cat, "Benny," to market every Friday morning at 6 a.m. MRS. HELEN E. OTT, B.S. University of Pennsylvania, Pembroke, Middlebury College Language School English, German, German Club. "Frau" Ott, who is deeply interested in cultural activities, extends her German interests outside the classroom. This de- voted mother of three is usually apt to elate her students, as they soberly file out ot room thirty-seven, with her pet phrase, "Morgen haben wir Fragen." Of course, this phrase is well-topped by her other favorite saying which brightens her German students' day. CEspecially the boyst. 36 37 Going over her history speech with Miss Cunnius, ln- Explaining ninth grade English is Mrs. Otto, Instructory structor is J Dornblaser M. Lindner, L.

Kutztown State Teachers College Columbia University Instruction in uses of the library, Junior Library Club, Senior Library Staff, National Honor Society. Sewing, reading, and bicycling are favorite pastimes of Mrs. Mack, our librarian, who is also extremely fond of Broadway productions. After eight and one-half years of efficient service, she resigned at the end of the first semester to assume a new position at Kutztown State Teachers College. No longer will our students hear those immortal words, "lt's getting a little too noisy in here!" Congratulations and success go with you. MR. DONALD C. RAKER, B.S. Bloomsburg State Teachers College Kutztown State Teachers College Temple University, Graduate work Guidance, Guidance Counseling, J.V. Basketball, Proiection Crew, Baseball, lOth grade sponsor. Mr. Raker, our competent and extremely friendly guidance counselor, is always willing to aid any young individual deter- mine the course he shall follow in later life. Much of his spare time is spent at home with his wife, Betty, and son Robert Steven. After putting in a day's work at school, Mr. Raker relaxes by playing golf, a game of which he is an avid fan.

Newpher. Thirty-one MR. NEVIN S. MATZ, B.S. Kutztown State Teachers College Algebra, Solid Geometry, Trigonometry, Advanced Math. At the end of a school day Mr. Matz puts his math to work as he tinkers in his wood shop. lt could well be said that things are sometimes really "hot" when Mr. Matz is around, as he is a member of both the Mt. Penn and the Lower Alsace Fire Companies. With atypical Berks County accent, Mt. Penn's answer to Pythagoras is often heard asking this immortal question, "Have you memorized the 8 fundamental functions yet?" Mr. Matz's wit and his dependable services as a bus driver makes him one of the most popular teachers. We shall always remember the basketball trips. MRS. ROBERT HAAG, B.S. in Business Ed. Bucknell University Business English, Clerical Practice, Typing I and Il, PENN ALMA advisor Puttin' to school in her "old-but-dependable" Dodge we have one of our Business Education teachers, Mrs. Haag. lf you have ever heard the expression, "Open your mouth and show your ignorance" undoubtedly you may have been within hearing distance of one of her classes. In addition to her pet proiect, our PENN ALMA, she takes an active part in Girl Scouting and enioys entertaining her friends at her Green Tree Acres home. Mrs. Haag's iovial personality, and genuine interest in students make her one of the teachers students long remember upon graduation. 39 Becoming acquainted with the slide rule are left to Explaining a problem In typing is Mr, Wismer.

St. Joseph's College History, Civics, Junior High Basketball. Capably handling the iob of giving our students a good background in civics and history is Mt. Penn's own Mr. Pettinato. This cheerful chap from "4O" is known by all stu- dents to be friendly and sincere in his desire to be helpful to them in any way he can. MLCHARLES A. BRECHBIEL, B.S. Shippensburg State Teachers College French and English, National Thespian Society, Junior Class Play, Coin and Stamp Collecting Club, Soccer. Alors donc, c'est assey. This expression-familiar to every French student-is frequently utilized by Mr. Brechbiel. Dra- matics and collecting coins and stamps are a few of Mr. Brechbiel's various interests. Mr. Brechbiel's powder blue Buick discloses much mileage since travel is an important part of this energetic educator's agenda. Although basketball, swimming, tennis, and hiking are high on his popularity poll, baseball isn't un de ses ieux favoris with this sports-minded bachelor. 40 4l Pointing to a picture in the civics book is Mr. Using the tape recorder in French class are, left to Pemnato Left to right A Hass Mr Pettmato Instructor, right: M, Miller, Mr. Brechbiel, Instructor, R.

LATSHAW CLASS MOTTO: "Prepare Today for Tomorrow's Challenge" CLASS FLOWERS: Red and White Roses CLASS COLORS: Charcoal Grey and White Our first task, the election of officers, took place during the first week of school. As prexie, we elected Steve Sulzbacher and to assist him, Mary Adams was chosen as vice president. Jean Men- gel and Jackie Delp were elected secretary and treasurer, respectively. A dance, held on September 20, was our first money-raising activity of the year. ln spite of inclem- ent weather, it was quite a success. Swinging into high gear, we decided to sell sweat shirts in the high school and book covers to the grade school children. Both ventures were rather prosperous. November 8 was the big night on which was presented our senior class play, "Curtain Going up." As we look back on it, it seems like that was iust yesterday. The came the big basketball season. The "Mounts" were the hottest offensive team in the league, but that game at Kutztown was a heartbreaker. Suddenly the year is nearly over and we think back to all the hard work and good times we had at Mt. Penn. And so, we leave the hallowed halls of M.P.H.S., but may we say thanks to everyone and every- thing at Mt. Penn, we'll never forget them! Thirty-six fr 3523 W 13? , 1951, QQ, Q " Hilfe' 8'-f? kwa?

No one can imagine what confusion prevails at a play rehearsal. This is what you might see if you were to be seated, incognito, at a Senior Class play rehearsal of the class of '58: Mr. Schutt arrives on time and patiently begins to wait for the great actors and actresses. We still see Mr. Schutt wait- ing after ten minutes have passed. Now the first few cast members arrive. More time lapses and a few more people come in, Finally. Mr. Schutt is about to give up, the last few people come racing toward the stage. Now rehearsal begins. Some of the things that we see and hear during the night are: "l think by this time you should all know your lines. November 8 isn't so very far away as you know." This is Mr. Schutt making a comment to all those members of the cast who have not learned their scripts. Someone isn't speaking loud enough. Someone finally suggest that the stage crew turn on the mikes. Of course that goes over with a thud. There is so much chaos in the wings that it confuses those people on the stage. Here is why there is chaos in the wings: The German students are doing their German homework and are naturally studying out loud, the French students are speaking French, someone's reading Macbeth and, two girls are dancing to some rock-and-roll records that were accidentally left in the record player. After the confusion dies down a least bit, one of the actresses starts jumping up and down on stage crying. Can you imagine why? She has cramps in her feet. After a fifteen-minute pause, the cast takes their places once more. Five pages have been covered by this time with a few brief interruptions. Mr. Schutt tells the cast to take a five-minute break which lasts fifteen minutes. The prompters are busy reading the lines for those who aren't here. lsn't it surprising how many people suddenly becorne ill? Meanwhile, the property committee is busy asking if they have such things as: a black wig, a sword, a Confederate hat, a shawl, and dueling pistols. It is now 8:30 p.m. and time to go home.

New classes, sports, teachers, and subiects await the newcomers to the high school or their first day in this new world. They have a chance to change classes for each different subiect which is a completely new experience. No more recess periods for the students once they are in junior high. The startled look on the newcomers' faces soon disappear as they gradually fall into the pace of iunior high life. Seventy-six l 1 - . . ON PARADE Newcomers, first row, left to right: C. Kaufman, M.

They elect their officers to start a foundation for their eventful iunior and Senior years. They must begin thinking about a class color, flower, and motto. They no longer are the youngest class in Senior High School, so they must begin to set an example for the Freshmen to follow. In the iOth grade the girls are given their chance to dress in formals for their first Prom. The "Soph-Hop" is a long-remembered occasion for everyone concerned The Sophomores eagerly await their Junior year, and their time passes as they enioy their school life. Eighty-five JUNIORS . . .

High stepping faster and faster, the march approaches its final segment. These ingenious juniors, capably advised by Mr. David Ziimmerman, are carefully planning for their senior year. They have increased their treasury by selling shakers to boost school spirit and by chartering a bus for the traditional Kutztovvn game. The school premises are decorated by the "Forest Green and White" class iackets and hats. The Juniors have their class rings to complete their class emblems. Soon the Junior Prom will be a reality and the class trip will materialize all to fade into pleasant memories. Eighty-seven AITI G TO BE LEADERS QF I9 9 One more step to go.

Selling candy at noon, collecting and distribut- ing foocl to needy families at Thanksgiving, conducting a get-together dance for iunior high, and organizing a Jr. Red Cross chapter in our school complete these busy girls' activities.

The Mountaineers' Soccer Team got off to a slow start but gathered momentum as the season progressed. In their first contest, the Mounts were tied i-l by Conrad Weiser and were even less fortunate in their second engagement losing 4-l to the Cougars of Kutztown. Then the tide turned as the boys turned in their first victory of the infant season with a 3-2 win over Penn-Bernville. They next held a highly regarded Perry team to a 0-O deadlock, due mainly to the great defensive play of our tullbacks and goalie. The next two encounters were both tight l-O successes over league-leading Bethel and hard-fighting Fleetwood. Up to that point, Bob Boyer had scored all the goals, but fine defense work by goalie Roger Marlatt and his teammates had contributed greatly to the team's success. Then, the Mounts traveled to Schuykill Valley on October TO and lost rather decisively 3-O, due to loose defensive work. In their next game, the Mountaineers encountered Reading High in a non-leage game and lost in a well-played contest l-O. Twin Valley was the next opponent and even though John Derr and Bob Boyer scored goals, it was only good enough to give us a 2-2 tie. Next the scoccer team iourneyed to Hamburg and held the Haeks to a l-l tie with Bob Boyer scoring a lone goal. The Mountaineers had compiled a commendable 3,2-4 record.
