From the moment of birth, our destiny is created and decided by our accom- plishments and experiences. Everything we do and say can alter our fate. What we have done, what we do now and what we do in the future creates our life's end, our destiny. We learn, plan, search, and strive to acquire the greatest success. As children, we set out on life's path and watch the success and failure of those before us. We attend school and study the ways of the world and the possibilities of our potential: We dedicate our youthful years to learning, in search of a secure and successful future. We look to our leaders, parents, and teachers for knowl- edge, experience, and guidance. By their success and failure can we profit and learn. They are dedicated to the purpose of our guidance. They are concerned and devoted to teaching the generations of years to come and advance our modern progressive world. Through their teachings we will be stronger, wiser citizens. They give us hope and knowledge and carry our path to destiny. We are working together to supplement our gains and achieve peaceful success as a class and a people. To- gether we know we can live and work with security and peace. We gather often to discuss our trials and aims, to conquer our enemies as a body and to create a safe, peaceful world for the destiny of all. Beside the harassment of daily pressure, we unify need and pleasure through sports and physical activity. We exercise to educate healthy bodies and complement intelli- gent minds. As we participate in the rigorous sports of today, we are learning the importance of cooperation and teamwork. We must work with others for our common goal of winning. Life is our game andthe common goal is success. Along our search of destiny, we must learn to expound our potential and advance our greatest attributes. We are striving for success so we make our profession well known. We look to advertising to introduce our specialty and profit by the gains of a commercial business. Whether by newspaper, radio or word of mouth, each of us must advertise his greatest abilities on his road to destiny. In this year, our senior year of high school, we the class of 1966 dedicate our book and our lives to destiny. As seniors we will continue along life's path, striving, search- ing and planning success. We will study and profit from experiences and expound our greatest abilities. We will work, learn, and play as a body of thoughtful and intelli- gent people, and leave behind us this record of growing success for the benefit of those to come on the road to destiny. Leadershi P With Enthusiasm I Dedication Miss Cunnius instructs a class from the podium. Miss Cunnius is shown with the Junior Class officers of the Class of '66, the first class she advised. From Left to Right: Donna Clothier, Secretaryg Fred Knoll, Presidentg Sharon Eshbach, Treasurerg Jay Mendelsohn, Vice-President and Miss Jane S. Cunnius, Adviser. Miss .lane S. Cunnius expounds every attribute of a truly-dedicated teacher. She has devoted her life to the teaching of the world cultures in our rapidly-changing world. - ln any phase of history, politics, or economics Miss Cunnius has intense knowl- edge and eagerly relates it to her students. Every culture can be studied in great depth in her classes. Miss Cunnius has a marvelous technique of making history come alive through her emphasis on the people and their personalities. By explaining the personal side of history, she creates student understanding of the world of yesterday and today. By the guiding hand of Miss Cunnius, the students realize the problems and how they can work to make the world a better place to live. To the class of 1966 Miss Cunnius is particularly dear. In her first year as junior class adviser, we were privileged to have her concern and guidance as our faculty leader. Miss Cunnius aided us as juniors to become a Well-organized and progressive class. Through our many endeavors-car wash, calendar sale, and spring dance-Miss Cunnius was "our pillar of approvalf' H And now we dedicate this book, the PENNALMA 1966, to Miss Jane S. Cunnius, our leader on the road of destiny. 5 5 ai iv ge 2 if 3 I! ll ,-1 w f : , ,. : f- .. ,L , , X I ff . I 4 K f n .X , I W .

As supervising principal, Dr. Constein executes many and varied administrative duties of the Mt. Penn-Lower Alsace School District. From his office at the adminis- tration building, Dr. Constein organizes and supervises the educational progress of the three elementary schools and the junior-senior high school. He also coordinates the work of the school board in establishing school policies, teachers' salaries, and schedules. Aside from visiting the schools, observing and rating teachers, and speaking periodically to different groups, Dr. Constein is also head of the high school English department. In this role he coordinates the curriculum of the English classes from grades 7 through 12. Dr. Constein plans many of the faculty in-service pro- grams. This year he initiated the faculty trip to the 98th Annual Convention and Work Conference of the Ameri- can Association of School Administrators at Atlantic City and conducted a county work shop for teachers of English at Wilson High School. He was also instrumental in inaugurating a major medical insurance plan for school personnel. Dr. Constein's weekly column, '4Schools in Reviewf, published in the Sunday edition of the Reading Eagle, is an additional activity of this administrator. At the school system's central office, located at' 705 Friedensburg Rd. are Mrs. Eleanor Hartman and Mrs. June Cataldi. Mrs. Hartman, pictured on page 11, is both administrative secretary and secretary of the Board of Education. Mrs. Cataldi performs the duties of pay- roll secretary and is responsible for the clerical office work at the administrative building. Together these capable secretaries transact the business of the admin- istration and aid in the smooth management of the school system. Dr. Carl F.

I I Mr. Glenn Adams, replacing Mr. Henry A. Zimmer- man as business manager performs the varied but vital functions concerned with the successful op- eration of the Mt. Penn-Lower Alsace Joint School System. It is his responsibility to purchase the needed school supplies. ln addition, Mr, Adams commuting from building to building, arranges for all repairs and maintenance of equipment throughout the district. He also coordinates the custodial and cafeteria staffs. The transfer of school money to and from the bank is another duty of Mr. Adams. The perplexities of such a position are certainly many. The school district can take pride in Mr. Adams, who so ably meets these varied qualifications. Mr. Emerson N. Rothenberger, princi- pal of Mt. Penn High School directs and organizes the educational facilities and activities of our junior-senior high school. Among his many duties, Mr. Rothenberger arranges student sched- ules, provides for interesting and varied assemblies, supervises custodial duties, and arranges the cafeteria program. Another important function of our prin- cipal is to coordinate the high school curriculum. Through the observation of different courses, as presented by the faculty, he evaluates the curriculum as well as different teaching methods. Through concentrated and sincere ef- forts, Mr. Rothenberger makes the high school efficient and productive. In addition, our administrator possesses a genuine interest in every school activ- ity and attends most school functions. He is always willing to lend his sup- port and aid wherever it is needed. Among his many interests is athletics. He is a former athlete and at present is a member of the PIAA board. He expresses a friendly attitude toward all students and takes great pride in learn- ing the name of each individual. Recently, Mr. Rothenberger was chosen as one of a small group of school prin- cipals from throughout the nation to participate in a study group to several foreign nations. The main purpose of this trip was to observe the educational systems of these countries, including Russia. Although this project was spon- sored by the federal government, he defrayed his own expenses on this fasci- nating trip, during the spring vacation. 1 Mr. Emerson N. Rothenberger Mr. Glenn 0.

The ten-member team represents the taxpay- ers who support our school district. The joint system is composed of five members from Lower-Alsace and five members from Mt. Penn. Sep- arately, the two boards operate the tax rates in their respective areas and meet together in joint sessions to supervise the functions of the school, and vote upon proposals concerning the activities of the schools in the school district. Board committees propose bills and discuss possible im- provements for the numerous school activities. All ten members serve on these committees and insure the smoothest operation of the school system. On December 15, the joint board elected an Interim Operating Committee of nine members, who prepared the 1966-67 budget and set the tax rate. The purpose of this committee is to carry out board transactions during the period of transition. July 1, 1966, will mark the establishing of the jointure as a state-mandated union district. The Interim Com- mittee will become the Board of the new Antietam School District. Secretary Mrs S.

Through modern appliances and equipment, basic food items are developed into full meals, from appetizer to dessert. Expert planning and special care in preparation contribute to the success of the cafe- teria. But although the pressure of serving an entire school in less than two hours is certainly grueling, a smile is always present on the faces of these women. During the year, a new face, Mrs. Mary Jane Gofus, was added to the staff upon the resignation of Mrs. Gertrude G. Mickanis.

Penn chapter of the National Edu- cation Association. The Mt. Penn associa- tion is composed of members of the faculty and administration from the entire school district. As leaders in education, the members of the Education Association strive to aid stu- dent knowledge through various service projects during the school year. A major production of the teachers was the annual faculty play, produced, directed, and portrayed entirely by district teachers. A scholarship presented annually to a graduating senior in pursuit of a teaching career reaps the profits from the affair. Another project of the association was the faculty basketball game. Annually members of the faculty compete with faculty mem- bers from a surrounding school while other members form a cheerleading squad, ticket selling and run the refreshment stand. Aside from concern for student education and professional advancement, the Associ- ation's program also offers various social functions for its members. This year's calendar included May clambake, The Spring Fling, Night of Bowling, Christmas caroling and a bus trip to Hershey Ice Capades.

ENGLISH Aside from his many duties as supervising principal, Dr. Constein is also head of the English department of the junior-senior high school. Dr. Constein evaluates the English courses and advances the various units of study of each grade level by teacher-pupil observations and by presenting the newest in materials and supplies. In the seventh grade the course begins with basic skill studies which are advanced and perfected throughout the English curriculum. The students are introducted to basic poetry and prose and gradually develop the dif- ferent styles of literature. As the students pass from grade to grade, they advance their English studies to the intricacies of formal writing and study in detail the works of the great world classics. Qualified as a certified teacher of English, Mrs. Mar- garet Huffert serves as theme reader for the English classes from seventh through twelfth grade. Formerly a teacher at Wilson High School, Mrs. Huffert now con- tinues her teaching at Mt. Penn by correcting themes and compositions. Once a week the students from each grade level are assigned written compositions ranging from simple paragraphs to term papers. These themes are corrected and evaluated by Mrs. Huffert. Mrs. Huf- fert's careful evaluation not only saves the instructor valuable time but also presents a point of view that is supplementary and advantageous to student and teacher. 23 ENGLISH dverb , Mr. Robert G. Haag 205 W. 46th Street Green Tree Acres Reading, Pennsylvania Kutztown State College, B.S. Subjects: English Adviser Mt. Penn Education Assn. Mr. Robert G. Haag, adviser of the seventh grade, implants in his classes the need for English, not only as a prerequisite for a good education but also an instrument for communication. It is his job to carry on the basic fundamentals of the English language as well as to instill in the students a desire to read certain classics in their entirety and then discuss particular aspects, such as theme, plot, setting, and character relationships as they are related to one another in the stories, and, if possible, what similarities one classic may have to another regarding structure. During the period of intense study of one of the classics, the stu- dents are often divided into groups to work on particular projects relating the project to the classic, such as, crossword puzzles, classic "bingo," character drawings or scale building models. Book reports are required-eight in 8th grade, and nine in 9th grade. The main purpose behind these reports is to have the stu- dent read various types of writing and to read for the sheer enjoyment of reading. This year, Mr. Haag experimented, on a limited basis, with the idea of the "honor', system when administering quizzes and found this system satisfactory. It is a chance to show the students that they can be responsible individuals as well as trustworthy. Each student is required to keep a notebook and at various times he is given mimeographed notes which eliminate the time-consuming element of dictation. This notebook is a vital element to the stu- dent, and if studied properly and reviewed frequently, it will aid the student in his present English course as well as in future courses. Another innovation this year is the record chart. Each pupil main- tains his own graphic chart whereby he may keep his record which will indicate to his parents and to himself, the progress that he is making in English. a ICS, and Compo ition Service in Mt.

Senior English is the place to put to use all the skills and techniques accumulated throughout the students? study of English. Without a doubt, Mrs. Keller has an im- portant role in developing the student for later life. Mrs. Keller introduces disciplined writing to many members of the class, shows them the way to incorporate 'Lburning words" in their writing, and stresses the recognition of controllers in the numerous themes written during the course. The year begins with the study of essays written by the modern authors, basically to draw contrasts between the different periods in English literature. Then backtracking to early times, the seniors analyze Beowulf and, to exercise their imagination and knowledge, write epics in the Old English tradition. Later, they also attempt Middle English ballads. To show their appreciation of Chaucer, a few seniors dramatically portray the characters of the MCanterbury Talesi' in an unforgettable production. Mrs. Keller continually stresses the importance of relating the humanities to course content and encourages the keeping of a personal vocabulary list. She also helps the students to develop their speech habits by impromptu speaking, speaking on prepared topics, and persuading them to give special reports designed to add outside informa- tion to the current study. "I think one of your burning words is on fire."-Mrs. Keller aids Susan French and Sally Gilbert with their beloved term papers.

Mrs. LaPorte explains a fine point in American literature. 26 A basic understanding of English is essential in any high school curriculum. One of the many able teach- ers at Mt. Penn striving toward this goal is Mrs. Dolores l.aPorte. She is often to be found with a select group of students who form the Future Teach- ers of America of which she is adviser. Teaching sections of four different grades would present a multitude of problems to many teachers, but Mrs. LaPorte handles the situation quite well. The seventh grade is taught to appreciate literature and at the same time to delve into the difficult arts of speaking and writing. Creative projects assumed by the seventh grade includes plays, stories, and poems. The ninth grade already skilled in these arts, strives to improve the techniques involved in these areas. By now well versed in the 'written and spoken language, the eleventh grade tackles a new problem. This involves a study of theubusiness back- ground" in relation to the English language. ln- cluded among the many facets of this course are reports on business and jobs, application proce- dures, personal interviews, and a study of the vo- cabulary, used, in the business world. The fourth course to be taught by Mrs. LaPorte is the "art of speaking? This elective course is open to tenth and eleventh grades. The object of this course is the improvement of speaking with confidence and style. Such devices as records, tape recorders, and over- head projector are constantly made use of through- out these classes. The culmination of Mrs. LaPorte's efforts is a well-rounded background of English among all her students. John on, Kipling, and Lamb Effective communication through management by lan- guage is the goal of English in tenth grade. Under Mr. Syphard's direction, students strive to attain a profi- ciency in grammar, writing, vocabulary, and speech. In addition to the study of the mechanics of the English language, students develop a deeper consciousness through an understanding and appreciation of literature. The study of language mechanics includes a review of grammatical concepts, essay questions, the study of words as symbols, and speech review and development. The literature study introduces the tenth grade pupil to Shakespeare,s work with the analysis of "Julius Caesarf, As an entire class, the sophomores read and examine the novel, Silas Marner. Character and plot study are stressed in detail. Mr. Syphard also introduces poetry. For many students this is their first experience in read- ing and preparing a brief analysis of a poem. Mr. Syphard also conducts an elective class in World Literature. The class is open to 11th and l2th grade students and meets twice a week during the elective periods. The students are exposed to literary works of varied styles and periods. Through individual research, discussion and critical analysis of new concepts, the students broaden their outlooks and come to a fuller understanding of themselves.

In Miss Strollo's elective journalism courw, students are given an opportunity to realize the challenge of journalism. The school newspaper, of which Miss Strollo is the adviser, provides the "laboratory experience" for the student. The instruction goes beyond this publication. The student comes to recognize the fascination and value of good journalism. He learns that newspapers must reflect a balance of good reporting with good editing. He realizes the obligations of accuracy, reliability, and good taste. A program of advanced skills in reading for the seventh and eighth grade is de- siigned to exteizd the readingskills. Miss Strollo introduces the eighth graders to the eye opment o listening skills. After this they move on to listening-notetaklng skills, and then to outlining. Encouraging students to use their own critical faculties in making comparisons. and interpreting contrasts is of major importance in Miss Strollo's English classes. Gram- mar is approached as a review in the 11th grade. Through reading. writing. and speaking experiences. students are taught to develop skills required for critical analysis, logical thinking, responsible judgments. and worthy appreciations.

ART The World of Practical Skill - Industrial Arts is the bridge between ideas and the three dimensional world. Through industrial arts skills, many objects can be created and utilized in many other fields. Under the careful supervision of Mr. Seifarth, Mt. Penn students can learn the techniques, advancements and po- tentials of industrial art skills. To the boys of the seventh grade, Mr. Seifarth explains in detail the various tools needed in wood working. He demonstrates how these tools should be used in order to obtain the best re- sults. The students are familiarized with the dif- ferent types and qualities of wood and the char- acteristics of each. Demonstrating his proficiency in the art, each student makes a useful object such as a lamp. In the seventh grade, also, Mr. Seifarth instructs the basic system of electricity. The boys study the battery and simple motors and set up simple circuits with lights, buzzers and bells. Diagram- ming electric circuits the seventh graders learn the techniques and standard electronic symbols. In ninth grade, the boys begin mechanical draw- ing. Here each student learns the importance of neatness and accuracy in conveying an idea. The drawing board and T-square become invaluable aids to his mechanical production. Senior high boys meet with Mr. Seifarth in ad- vanced courses of wood shop and mechanical drawing. In advanced mechanical drawing, the students acquire the skill and technique of more complicated instruments such as those used by the professional draftsman. Each student becomes more fully aware of the vital relationship between "The label says 'Made in ,Iapanf "-John Drumheller and William Shields are guided by Mr. Seifarth. Mr. .lohn H.

Richard Hartman. Mr. Hartman teaches the entire male population of the 8th grade and many senior high boys in the "whys 81 hows" of metal working. He also instructs senior high boys in elective mechanical drawing and graphic arts. In metal shop, Mr. Hartman tries to develop an interest in and an ap- preciation of the metalworking industries. While learning of the use and safe handling of the tools and machinery of the metal shop, the :boys learn to appreciate good design -and to judge the quality of various metal projects. The draftsmen of the mechanical drawing class develop habits of fast, neat and accurate representation of objects on paper. They also learn to use and understand the scale rule and charts and tables in the solving of problems relating to drawing and shop practices. Mr. Hartman also teaches the boys advanced techniques in the rendering of drawings that can be applied for industrial and engineering uses. In graphic arts or print shop, the boys learn to use the shop printing presses and the various processes connected with the use of the press. These boys are also made aware of the various occupations and oppor- tunities for a vocation in the printing industry. 4 Unfortunately, Mr. Hartman resigned his position at Mt. Penn to take on a demanding job in industry with Dana Corporation. He was re- placed by Mr. Norman A. Bortz on February 15. A "A tea kettle that whistles the 1812 Overture . . .

Mrs. Brown's homemaking course is designed to develop the interest and needs of the students which relate to personality development, social and family rela- tionships and home care. With Mrs. Brown, the girls enjoy learning the skills of homemaking. Sen- ior high home economics is divided in two main sections: sewing and cooking. With the aid of Mrs. Brownis guiding hand, baked goods and hand- made articles are products of happy homemaking study. With this knowledge the girls make prepara- tion to become future housewives in their years to come. Mrs. H. Roger Brown 331 Carsonia Avenue, Mt.

As a result of this teaching, her girls gain knowledge in the helpful skills of sewing, cooking, and homemaking. During their junior years in home economics, the girls learn to make such useful articles as aprons, skirts, and pajamasg and to cook appetizing meals. They also learn how to select the correct nutritional foods. Under Mrs. Leininger, the junior girls get their first training in home living, not only from books, but from actual experience. They have an experienced teacher who has learned her skill well and knows how to make her classes interesting and unforgettable.

The ele- mentary pupils learn the techniques of song and music of all cultures as they train their voices. Mrs. Keeney instructs the junior chorus Monday and Thursday during elective periods. The chorus practices and masters songs of every type from folk songs to show tunes. During assemblies and other social functions, the chorus presents a sweet medley of songs that delights the entire audience. Mrs. Keeney is the piano accompanist for the Reading Choral Society and vice-president of the Music Educators of Berks County. In this position, Mrs. Keeney plays an active part in community music as well as the school. Mrs. Keeney was instru- mental in planning the County Chorus County Band Concert in which many Mt.

Mr. Yeager directs the band in the "Marine's Hymn." Mr. Lester Yeager is probably one of the busiest music teachers in the county. Unlike many schools, Mt. Penn employs only one full-time teacher. Thus, all the responsi- bilities of the music department fall on his shoulders. Mr. Yeager divides his time between teaching music and conducting the bands. He not only has to build a thorough foundation in music for the seventh, eighth, and ninth grade, but must also teach the Senior High music apprecia- tion class. Looking at his schedule, one could assume that he has many free periods. This is hardly the case since most of them are taken up by private lessons. At the end of the day when most teachers look forward to a free elective period, Mr. Yeager can be found busily working at band practice. Posters, ualit , and Reproduction All of the Junior High and 80 members of the Senior High meet at least once a week in Room 210 to learn how to think. No, they are not taking a course in philosophyg they are in one of Mr. Romich's art classes. The main objective of the art course is to teach the student how to think, for when the student develops the ability to think, he begins to use techniques and media in a creative combination. Art, as it is taught at Mt. Penn, enables the thinking student to learn how to budget time and handle materials and tools in the manner in which he would be expected to in industry. The thinking student, through his endeavors in the art department, will also develop an appreciation' of art in history and in everyday living. Each student works independently and is not compared to any other individual in the school. The students earn their grades on the basis of their individual per- formance. Many pieces of special equipment are available for the student's use, including a potter's wheel, an air brush, an etching press and a buffing wheel. There is also a variety of hand tools and materials to be used by the students while making an art project. Through the use of the various tools and supplies. the students create many different and beautiful works of art. "You are pointing at a blank page."-Mr., Romich explains an art project.

Mr. Ronald Himmelberger sets an example and teaches the students the importance of health and physical education for a full, rich, and healthful life. His course makes the students aware of the proper care of the human body by emphasizing general health habits and personal hygiene both in the school and at home. The students learn to erradicate superstitions and misin- formation concerning health habits. They are made safety-conscious by recognizing the causes and types of the most dangerous and frequent accidents and the treatment of injuries. Through advanced learning in physical education, Mr. Himmelberger with the help of the Student Leader Corps, directs the boys' gym classes. The boys par- ticipate in soccer, football, dancing, boxing, basket- ball, wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball, softball, and track. The boys learn leadership, self discipline, and confidence by participating in the activities. Minnie tramps and floor hockey have been added to the gym equipment this year, and bowling and golf are planned for 1966-1967. Physical education de- velops basic skills to enjoy life and also opens creative minds. It places excellence in perspective with sub- stantial efforts and contributes to the all-round devel- opment and education of the students. Mr. Ronald M. Himmelberger R.D. 2, Bernville, Penna.

Yearbook Staff Strives Fol The organization of all activities of the school year into a book of fond recollections is the responsibility of the Penn Alma staff. Aided by various members of the senior class, and supervised by Mrs. Robert G. Haag, faculty adviser, the five members of the staff work diligently to produce a suc- cessful yearbook. This has been a year of many changes for the Penn Alma, noted especially by a change in publisher, and a new campaign for ob- taining ads was also formulated. Various money-raising projects complete the already hectic schedule of this organization. Among them are a dance and a sub-sandwich sale, both of which greatly aided the Penn Alma treasury. The sincere cooperation of all those con- nected with the Penn Alma resulted in a fine product. ,awk The three intrepid yearbook editors are Diane Richter, Edwin Ogden, and Andrew Shapiro.

Club membership nvestigate World Problem One of the busiest organizations in the school is the United Nations Club. Under the direction of Miss Jane S. Cunnius, the U. N. Club attained a high level of achievement. Mt, Penn's diplomats attended the Model United Nations Conference held at Albright College on December ll. Early in the school term, the Inter- national Relation Club of Albright, the sponsor of the conference, assigned the countries of Ghana, Portugal, Albania, lsrael and United Kingdom to Mt. Penn. The delegates put in many long hours of research and study on the three issues that were discussed: Kashmir, population, and Rhodesia. Each country had a representative on each of the three committees. The delegates submitted resolu- tions to their committees that represented their countryis policy on the given issue. The resolu- tions were discussed, debated, and voted upon within the committees and the resolutions that were passed were voted upon in the General Assembly. Mt. Penn's delegation of Portugal placed third in the competition. Members of the club were then chosen to go to the East Coast Model U. N. Conference that was held in Syracuse, New York, and to the National lnvitational Model General Assembly held in Washington, D. C. Mt. Penn was the only school in the county to be invited to the Georgetown Conference. In order to help defer the costs of the various conferences, the U. N. Club sponsored three dances and a cake sale.

In preparation for a successful senior year, sophomore and junior classes gain experience by engaging in various profitable activities. The sophomore class is engaging in a new en- deavor this year. They are sponsoring a play by the Community Players. A one-act play is also being planned for the tenth grade assembly. These activities should prove profitable as well as valuable in experience. The junior class participates in an annual maga- zine campaign. Through competition with the senior class for the high sales record in this en- deavor. all juniors are encouraged to do their best. Another activity in the junior year is the ,lunior Class Play. This function usually realizes a great profit. The selling of calendar towels also helps to fill the class treasury. To succeed in these various endeavors, both classes must be ably led. Such leadership may be found in the class officers. The responsibility for the success or failure of all class activities rests on their shoulders. ophomores and Junior ii X ' 4 Junior Class Officers-Susan Evans, Secretaryg Todd Zimmerman, Vice'Presidentg Miss Jane S.

Penn,s hooters added great excitement to the Berks County Soccer League. Ably coached by Mr. Ronald Himmelberger, the Mounts set an unofficial record for ties at six. They obtained six points to place eighth out of the eleven participating teams. The Mounts allowed only 15 goals in ten games, but suc- ceeded in scoring only five. They displayed a strong defense, offsetting a weak line. Honoring Mt. Penn this year were Dennis Stephen, who qualified as first-string fullback on the Berks All-Star Team, and Randy Reich, who received honorable mention on the Coaches All-Berks Soccer Team. The team received the Berks County Soccer Officials Sports- manship trophy to be displayed for one year. 1965 SOCCER SCORES MPHS Opp. Twin Valley 0 0 Hamburg 0 0 iilieading 1 2 Conrad Weiser 2 2 Tulpehocken 0 4 Kutztown 0 O Wilson 1 1 Brandywine 1 2 Schuylkill Valley 1 1 Fleetwood 0 3 Oley 0 2 N'Non-League Game.

The team pulled together after that, and won six of their next eight meets to finish the season with a 6-5 won-loss record. It is a real credit to the hard work of the entire team under the direction of Mr. Harold Stern to have finished with such a fine record, for they often ran against teams that outnumbered them by three to one. In addition to the dual meets, our runners captured fifth place in the County Meet, with Richard Haggerty taking Fourth Place in the individual standings. Rich also placed second in the City Run spon- sored by the City of Reading Recreation Bureau, and missed quali- fying to go to State by one place at the District 3 Meet.

Even though the team did not gain the championship this year, they still had an unde- feated season with a 5-0-3 record. The Mountainettes played under the terrific coach- ing and leadership of Miss Anita A. Geiger. With good sportsmanship, team Work, spirit, and success- ful playing ability, the girls achieved their victories. Many of the goals were attained by the driving for- ward line, mainly headed hy Susan Thomas and Cathy Ludwig. The line players were backed by Karen Hoffman, an enthusiastic half-back. The op- posing teams failed to score many goals against Mount Penn's excellent goalie, Dianne Davis. The girls again planned a dinner to honor Miss Geiger for her efforts and achievements. We are very proud of Miss Geiger's accomplish- ments and would like to wish her continued luck and success with her superior hockey team in years to come. 1965-1966 LINE-UP Center F orward-Susan Thomas Left Inner--Joan Ecker, Karen Moore Right Inner-Cathy Ludwig Left Wing-Constance Henry, Natalie Schwoyer Right Wing-Sharon Lightcap Center Halfback-Karen Hoffman Left Halfback-Linda Wentzel, Marcia Salpeter Right Halfback-Cynthia Woerle Left Fullback-Dianne Babczak Right Fullback--Janice Babczak Goalie-Dianne Davis C0-Captains-Dianne Davis, Dianne Babczak These members of the Girls' 1965-1966 Hockey Team really '4'shine" any day of the week.

Due to the relative inexperienee and small stature of the team, the Mounts had little difficulty in compiling a 1-19 record. The starting line-up for the team this year was the youngest ever boasted by Mt. Penn. lt consisted of three juniors--Lee Wentzel, William Blum and Robert Koehg one sophomore, William Klineg and one freshman, Robert Romanski. With all five starters returning next year, this year served as a valuable season of experience. "Big Bill" Kline put in a superb job at the center position. During his first year on the team, Bill matured more as a basketball player each game. Although he is only 6'2" tall, he out-rebounded and out-played many larger boys. Robert Romanski became an excellent ball handler as the- year progressed and showed great promise as a freshman. William Blum, Robert Koch and Lee Wentzel put in steady performances throughout the season. Wentzel really came into his own in the last few games in the season, becoming a 'idead shot" from 20 feet. Roger Evans served as the sixth man on the team throughout the season, and James Brown was brought up from the .l.V. squad for the last two games. Although the team did not post an impressive record, they did outnumber Coach Troutman seven to one by the end of the season.

From left to right: Linda Greenberg, and Karen Hoffman. Dennis Stephens, James Riegel, Sally Gilbert, Diane Richter, On Friday and Saturday, March 5 and 6, 1965, the Class of 1966 presented "The Diary of Anne Frank" as their Junior Class play. This was one of the most ambitious un- dertakings ever to be produced in this school. The set was unique in that it was a two-level set with a number of raised portions on the first level. Under the capable direction of Mr. Allen Schutt, the mem- bers of the cast tackled the difficult job of emulating Dutch Jews who were confined to an attic in Amsterdam during World War ll. The lead role was portrayed by Sally Gilbertg supporting roles were taken by Frank Sager, Diane Richter, James Houser, Andrew Shapiro, Gloria Nowatarski, James Riegel, Karen Hoffman, and Dennis Stephen.

Senior Class Play On November 12 and 13, 1965, the Senior Class pre- sented a unique play, THE NIGHT OF JANUARY 16TH, which was an actual murder trial, directed by Miss Johanna Strollo. A financier, Bjorn Faulkner, is presumably murdered by his secretary, Karen Andre, on the night of January 16th. Karen is arrested and brought to trial. The entire action takes place in a courtroom. An unusual feature of this play was the selection of jurors, who were drawn by lot from the audience. The first night the verdict brought forth was guilty and the second night not guilty. This play dealt with individual characterizations which were very adaptly presented. It still can be debated, was she guilty or not? CAST Prison Malron ..... ........... ....

Too late, teachers too late, but never mind All our trials, Lord, will soon be over. Had some books, they give to us, And every book, spelled homework plus. All our trials Lord, will soon he over.

What will this day be like, we wonder. What will our futures be, we wonder. It could be so exciting, to be out in the world, to be free. Our hearts should be wildly rejoicing. Oh, what7s the matter with uwe,"7 We've always longed for adventure, to do the things we've never dared. Now, here we're facing adventure. Then why are we so scared? An education in school and business, what's so fearsome about that. Oh, we must stop these doubts-all worries. If we don't, we just know weill regress. Dr. Eugene H. Miller, professor of Political Science, Ursinus Col- 154 lege, was the main speaker at Commencement. We must dream of the things we are seeking. We are seeking the education we lack. The education to serve the world with reliance, face our mistakes without defiance, show them we are worthy, and while we show them we'll show us. Yes, with each step we grew more certain that this commencement makes our future bright. So it was on June 7, 1965, that nervousness and joy, fear and anxiety, friends and mem- ories took their last steps together. This was the last act of a twelve-act play. This was the last step of a twelve-step ladder. Yes, with each step we grew more certain. CLASS OFFICERS-1965 President ........,...,.,.. ......,. D avid L.

Because he was confined to a wheelchair at home, a unique intercom system was provided to bring classes to his home. For four rewarding years, dis- tant voices were his companions and unseen rooms were as familiar to him as they are to us. Even with the difficulties of his affliction, he remained a faith- ful student until he was taken from us in the spring of 1965. We shall all remember him as a truly fine classmate. by THOMAS WILLIAMS '66 Secretary ur Officer Lead U We Progress President John Dautrich Academic-Scientific "Skip" . . . our able and hardworking Senior Class President . . . a real super-salesman . . . always frrendly . . . hobbies include cars . . . and traveling - - - After School John will serve in the Armed Forces.

Ee 52 is X K X The production of this yearbook involved the cooperation and assistance of many helpful people other than the members of the class of ,66, who gave the editors invaluable encouragement and guidance. Mr. W. H. Fox, our fearless photographer, braved life and limb to provide us with many fine photographsg Miss Kay Ghilardi and the members of Whitners' photography department gave us prompt, courteous service on the processing of the photos. Barry Diamond, class of '67, spent many hours walking through the hallowed halls to provide us with interesting student candid shots. Mr. Emerson Rothenbergefs unfailing support throughout the year aided us in a usmoothern production of the book and the many money-raising projects connected with the financing of the book. The faculty, student body and school personnel all cooperated in compiling the many details necessary. Mr. Klinger, Mr. Nice and the other custodians cheerfully opened the school for us whenever we found it necessary to work after hours, and often provided us with much-appreciated green mints. The subscribers, advertisers, magazine and sub-sandwich pur- chasers all provided the much-needed pecuniary backing for the publication. To all-we, the editors, express are sincere appreciation and deep gratitude.
