We are all the subjects of destiny. 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
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
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

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

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

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
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.

Policies To Be Followed
The Board of Education is the school system's govern-
ing body. 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
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

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.

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.

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
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.

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.

No, James Joyce did not write The Odyssey." Mrs. LaPorte explains a fine
point in American literature.
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.
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

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.
In introducing a new grammar text, Miss Strollo tries to bring into the classroom
the ideas and methods that have developed from the extensive and intensive study
of language during the past thirty years. The linguistic approach to the study of
language is introduced. The importance of semantics in spoken and written language
is also stressed.

If you are ever outside Room 212 and hear some cheerful

As the first contact students have with the world of math-
ematics at Mt. Penn, Mr. Bierly, with his friendly manner
and enjoyable lessons, makes the study of mathematics a
delight. Although many students dislike mathematics upon
entering seventh grade, it is a rarity to find a student who
does not enjoy mathematics after he has come into contact
with Mr. Bierly.
ln the seventh grade, Mr. Bierly reinforces the basic skills
that the students learned in their first six years of school,
and introduces concepts pertaining to algebra and the other
branches of mathematics. By using the arithmetic text book
and supplementary problems, Mr. Bierly sets a foundation
upon which the more detailed and complicated ideas can be
built in the seventh grade. In the eighth grade section that .
he instructs, Mr. Bierly uses the modern algebra text along
with supplementary problems.
All the students at Mt. Penn are thankful for the fine basis
in math that Mr. Bierly gave them.

tem and then apply their English, typing, and shorthand
skills to the production of business correspondence.
Secretarial office practice students learn the fundamental
operations of office machines, records management, data
processing, and the handling of the secretaryis daily
typing and routine work.
The aim of the business law class is not only to gain an
insight into the applications of the basic laws governing
the everyday' business activities of individuals and the
specialized transactions of businessmen, but also to de-
velop respect for law in a democratic society.
Students in the academic typing and notehand class de-

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

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
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.

Through their younger years at Mt. Penn, every girl at one
time or another has experienced the artful teaching of Mrs.
Mildred Leininger, the junior high home economic's teacher.
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

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.

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

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-
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.

Mr. Himmelberger leads the boys, gym class in a well co-ordinated exercise.
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.

Seventh and eighth grade students also need to be given
an opportunity to express their musical talents. The Junior
Band presents this opportunity. With the help of Mr. Lester
Yeager, these young musicians learn the basic skills of band
participation so essential to the development of a good
group. These skills enable the students to reach a very
worthwhile goal-Senior Band. A variety of instruments
present a challenge to these novice musicians. To conquer
their instruments is success-to fail to conquer them is an
indication that more practice is needed. Hours of such prac-
tice accompanied by the able help of Mr. Yeager form good
musicians from strong-willed individuals with musical in-
terests. Success is assured for these hard-working future

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.

This year Mt. 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.

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

The Mount Penn Girls' Hockey Team was again
one of the top teams in the Eastern Division Hockey
League. 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

Mt. Penn's junior varsity basketball team's season was one of
ups and downs. While posting a respectable 11-9 record, Mt.
Bartleas cagers showed occasional signs of brilliance.
Early in the campaign, it appeared that the boys would be
threats for the Eastern Division ,l.V. crown. However, hampered
by injuries and the loss of the services of team captain Todd
Zimmerman, the team never reached its full potential.

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.

anyone who was connected with it. It was a great success!

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?

AT LONG LAST-

uTWas the night of the prom and all through the house,
Everyone was stirring-including the mouse!
The dress had been hung by the closet with care,
ln hopes that the prom date soon would be there.
Little brother had been sent unwillingly to bed,
Although the dear boy by his ear had been led.
I crept to the window, all my soul was in prayer,
It canlt rain tonight-No, please think of my hair!
The day had been endless, each job such a chore,
If time didn't go faster, l couldn't stand much more!
I started to dress, and everything went wrong-
The slip was too short, and the dress was too long.
Then Mother quietly took things in tow,
She sewed and pressed and things smoothly did flow.
Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
My Dad, from his chair, ran to see what was
He threw up the window, and what should he beholdg
But a rattling jalopy, whose age was untold!

Dad opened the door and received him with style,
"Come in, sit down. She,ll be down in a whilef,
He sat in a chair, with his hat he did fumble.
Dad took up his paper and started to mumble:
6'Nice weather we're having," he tried hard to say,
"Nice morning we had, it was a grand dayf,
On hearing the noise, I knew in a flash
My best beau had arrived and I'd have to dash.
It helped matters little, as I slipped on my dress
my brother's voice said, 4'You look like
I descended the steps as graceful as a queen,
And from that moment on, I walked in a dream.
My beau was smiling, and my dad looked
mighty pleased g
I knew right then that I wasn't being teased.
He helped me with my wrap, and presented me
I looked back as if to say, "We won't be home
Dad shouted with relief, "Thank goodness

Hush little seniors, now let's not cry.
We know this service is solemn and high.
All our trials, Lord, will soon be over.
This complex world is chilly and cold.
Chills the body, don't hurt the soul.
All our trials, Lord, will soon be over.
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.
Hush little, seniors, now let's not cry.
We know our Baccalaureate is solemn and high.
All our trials, Lord, will soon be over.
This solemn service seems strange to us.
For only yesterday we were six plus.
All our trials, Lord. will soon be over.
Too late, Seniors, too late, but never mind
All our trials, Lord, will soon be over.
Have a message, it was given to us.
Every word spelled success plus.
All our trials, Lord, will soon be 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
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-

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

this commencement makes our future bright.
So it was on June 7, 1965, that nervousness

the last act of a twelve-act play. This was the
last step of a twelve-step ladder.

At the onset of the 1961-1962 school term, the class
of 1966 welcomed Douglas Aulenbach to its ranks.
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
