Text from Pages 1 - 92 of the 1950 volume:
1950 is a big and momentus year for Mount Pleasant
School. For the first time our school is now a full-fledged
high school. We, the Class of 1950, have been the
pioneers-for four years we have been the senior cl'ass and
have pushed forward finding new responsibilities and op-
portunities awaiting us. We have watched and seen the
progress of our school as it grew each year and the many
changes which transpired toward making Mount Pleasant
a high school.
Our group is the first graduating class-the first produc-
tion of the high school. In a way our class is the "baby"
of Mount Pleasant High School. Born in September of
1946 in an atmosphere of uncertainty, each year we grew
in knowledge, experience, and friendship. We gained in
strength and maturity as we took our first steps and better
prepared ourselves for the future.
We have chosen this to be the theme of our yearbook.
The baby so often pictured throughout these pages repre-
sents the Class of 1950. He is our guide as we read this
annual and reminds us of the importance of the year. We,
the staff, hope that this first issue of the "GREEN LEAF"
will serve as a chronicle of school life and bring to the
minds of its readers the fond memories of the fun, friends
and activities we shared during our school days.

We, the first graduating class of Mount Pleasant High School,
do dedicate this yearbook to those classes of our Alma Mater who
shall follow after us. May they continue and enhance the traditions
which we have tried to establish, and in so doing, attain greater honor
for the school and for themselves.
Preridenl of the Senior Clary
TO THE CLASS OF 1950:
You have the rare privilege and dis-
tinction of being the first class to be grad-
uated from Mount Pleasant High School.
In the years to come you will probably
always receive a certain thrill when you
recall this fact. It makes you charter
members so to speak of what is to be a
splendid institution. just as all institu-
tions are judged by their membership, so
shall Mount Pleasant High School be
judged, in part, by you. The membership
of your class is above average in calibre.
If each of you lives up to his potential
promise, Mount Pleasant will have reason
to be proud of its first class. God Speed
and Good Luck to each and every one
of you. ,
ADM Nl 7'R'47l0lV
Congratulations to you, the members
of the first class to be graduated from
Mount Pleasant High School. You have
labored diligently in blazing a trail for
those who will follow after you and now
you have arrived at the culmination of
your high school course. May your
diploma mean more to you than the at-
tainment of a cherished ambition and
may your commencement be the begin-
ning of a greater and more noble life.
I wish to extend, to each of you, my
best wishes for a successful and happy

OUR FIRST YEAR
The Class of 1950 arrived in a high school world
of confusion and inexperience in September of 1946.
Here we moved in what seemed to be an entirely
new atmosphere-so new that several days passed
before we were able to get to our classes on time.
Our training in the responsibilities of high school
freshmen began immediately, and, surprisingly, we
learned quickly. One of our first steps was taken in
the direction of class organization. jimmy Riley was
chosen president and Joan Worrad was selected as
vice-president. Carolyn Kendall received the job of
Later on, we understood that Christmas was on its
way. To help spread some of the holiday cheer, a
class group sang carols throughout the neighborhood.
The caroling party was climaxed at school with
dancing and the serving of refreshments. This ac-
tivity became traditional with our class.
How time dragged by! But finally june rolled
around. On june 12, 81 of us gathered on the school
steps and "watched the birdie" as the photographer
snapped our freshman class picture, That evening
we presented class night exercises for our parents
and friends. The Freshman Frolic followed this pro-
gram and was the first orchestral dance for our class
and their guests. A carnival theme was carried out
in the decorations, many gay and festive streamers
with balloons adorning the school gym.
OUR SECOND YEAR
After the summer vacation, which seemed too
short, 65 sophomores returned to the "old grind".
In an election which soon followed, Jeanne Smolka
was elected president, jimmy Riley, vice-president,
Ruth Wheatley, secretaryg and joan Worrad, treas-
This indeed was a big year for our school! Mount
Pleasant had its very Hrst football team. The team
was supported exceptionally well by a large number
of followers. Three games filled the schedule and
everyone was pleased with the two wins which were
The sophomore year marked a special one for
another reason than that of football. The Hrst
Mount Pleasant choir was organized and this fine
organization gave several concerts during the year.
Both the musical and the football presentations were
well deserving of the credit which they received.
In the spring the Sophomore Hop was held. It
was open to the tenth grade and their guests. The
beautiful decorations, representing the theme, "The
Dwarf Club", and a wonderful orchestra sent us on
to our junior year.
OUR THIRD YEAR
Another summer had passed, and again we re-
turned to school for another year of education and
fun. This year our class membership increased by
one to make a total enrollment of 66. Class officers
were at once chosen. Harry Moore was elected pres-
identg Buddy Dietz, vice-president, Barbara Queener,
secretaryg and Joan Worrad, treasurer.
Concessions for the 1948-49 football and basket-
ball seasons helped the junior class along with their
In December came our Christmas Dance, which
the class sponsored. With Christmas decorations and
refreshments, it proved to be a very gala affair.
This was the year to order our class rings. A
large committee spent many hours in choosing seals
and ring styles from which the class made its final
decision. By the middle of February the juniors were
sporting their new class rings.
On March 11 and 12 we presented the hilarious
comedy, "We Shook the Family Tree", as the first
junior Play. The practices and parties, which pre-
ceded it, made the evenings -very pleasant.
By May plans were well under way for the junior
Prom, the decorative theme "Blue Moon and Blue
Room" being chosen. So it was that, on May 27,
the junior class and their guests were entertained by
their third annual orchestral dance.
Mount Pleasant's first yearbook was in the minds
of the staff members about this time. Announce-
ments were made in the spring concerning dates and
plans for the printing of the "Green Leaf."
With things all set for the next term the junior
class left behind them one' of the best school years.
OUR LAST YEAR
The senior year at Mount Pleasant was certainly
one of the busiest years experienced. Our class pres-
ident was joe Wortz, vice-president, janet Smith,
the secretary, Ruth Wheatley, and the treasurer, joan
Committees were chosen and practices began in
November for the Senior Play, "The Tavern", which
was presented on December 9 and 10, in the school
The Senior Ball was an affair to be remembered.
It was held in the Du Barry Room of the Hotel
du Pont on February 3. This dance marked the first
formal and the biggest dance of our Mount Pleasant
During the winter the new recreation room was
secured by the twelfth grade for their use. Many
enjoyable senior activities were held there.
Before we knew it, graduation had rolled around
and our thoughts turned to name cards, announce-
ments, and caps and gowns. All 62 seniors enjoyed
the activities of the last few months together. Senior
Odd Day was held in April. Many memorable things
can be recalled from the senior trip-and on june
10, the "Farewell to Seniors Dance" was held for
The Baccalaureate Services, Class Night, and Com-
mencement put a linal ending to our high school
education. Many students in our class will continue
their education, while the rest will seek other op-
portunities, but whatever tasks face us, we never will
forget the thrill of being the first graduating class of
Mount Pleasant High School. It has been a grand
period of our lives and one that will always be re-
membered as we leave our school to take other re-
sponsibilities in this great world.

Some time in the years to come, the babe of 1950
will be old. In a distant year his hair, now fair and
downy with youth, will be hoary with age. Between
that year and this, lie the years of work and study,
of success or failure.
O spirits, who guard the portals of the future, add
years to this babe-lift the concealing veil of his
youth and let him lead us through the maze of the
uncertain future. Permit him to show us the gradu-
ates of the Class of '50 ten years from today.
Look-there, he appears-no longer an infant and
with a promise to reveal to us the secrets of tomor-
Lead us, O spirit of the Class of '50-lead us
behind the curtain of 1960 and unfold to us the
work in the fields of cosmic and atomic energy.
Also there is Martha Shillito, fast-rising author of
"Macdeath", a story of murder and intrigue. She is
cheering excitedly, unaware of the dark and gloomy
looks of psychiatrist Dick Peoples, who had un-
fortunately bet on the wrong team. Sportscaster
Streevy also points out Wayne Kirklin, that versatile
musician so often called "the one-man band".
As we leave the park we notice posters plastered
on the outside walls. One picture shows the blond
curls and soulful brown eyes of Van Ladd, alias
Tommy Ross, the great lover of stage and screen.
Other posters announce the big circus coming to
town and display the daring tricks and acrobatics of
"that man on the flying trapeze", "Roberto" Dunlap.
destinies of our classmates.
With a knowing twinkle in
his eye the Class of '50 spirit
beckons us to follow him.
The first scene we see before
us is that of a huge room. All
about is gleaming equipment,
all white and clean. Two men,
Drs. Dietz and Neagley, famed
dental surgeons, are hard at
work on the dentures of Su-
zanne Neumeyer, Wall Street
secretary. Suzanne, a naturally
nervous young woman, is cling-
ing tightly for comfort to the
hand of Geraldine Mills, dental
In the outer ofiice Margaret
McGroarty is discussing her
married life with Beverly Gar-
nett, originator of the famous
'S ff X
Another one reads that Shirley
Hartmann, the widely acclaimed
star of the 1960 Ice Capades, is
soon to appear in person in
Darting down the street is a
small black-haired figure. It is
Adele Sermattei, prominent so-
cial worker, who is rushing to
find a new apartment for elocu-
tion teacher Edythe Sands.
Edythe finds sleep impossible in
her present home on Hubbub
In the hospital across the
street lies the popular model,
Anna Bullock, who was struck
by a hit and run driver while
she was vacationing in "Philly".
Anna is being cared for by the
two most capable nurses in the
"Advice to the Lovelorn" column.
Suddenly, through the magic of our friend, the
Class of '50 spirit, we find ourselves at Shibe Park.
The fans are going wild and two players are being
borne from the field upon the shoulders of their vic-
torious teammates. As they come closer we recognize
jimmy Riley and Cecil Godfrey, the two held most
responsible for the Phillies' capture of the pennant
for three consecutive years. Waiting to interview the
two sports idols are ace reporters janet Smith and
The voice of sportscaster Glenn Streevy can be
heard over the din of the crowd. He is naming the
celebrities present at the stadium today. Among
these we see Drs. Dorothy Delker and Arthur Og-
genfuss, who have locked up their offices for the
afternoon. These two have made an incomparable
contribution to the world by their top secret research
city, Ruth Paul and Peggy jenkinson.
Flying above we see the "Star Duster", the new
streamlined airplane designed by prominent modern
architect, Bill Sherwood. Aboard the air liner is
stewardess joan Worrad, who seats Marion Thayer,
competent United Nations' interpreter, across the
aisle from the former Elsie Noell, who is now hap-
pily married and journeying to join her husband and
family in New York. Victor Berger, top flight radio
technician, is plaguing Joan for something to combat
his air-sickness. Jeanne Smolka, famous lecturer,
seated a few chairs ahead of them, is seemingly un-
aware of her surroundings. She is engrossed in prep-
aration for her next lecture on "Peace Through Ar-
gument". Buddy Ward, also a passenger, is rushing
copy for his comic strip, "Powder Puff Percy the
Flea." His boss, Richard Umbrecht, editor of the
new magazine, "jazz", is awaiting the completed
strip in New York.
Transported through space and time, we soon ar-
rive in New York City, where we notice a distinctive
shoppe on Fifth Avenue. It is the place of business
of Carolyn Clift, interior decorator, and Marjorie
Snyder, fashion designer. In the rooms above this
shoppe is the studio of Ardis Shanks, renowned
painter of children's portraits. Shirley Matthews is
talking "shop" with Marjorie. Shirley is a fashion
expert and buyer who recently returned from a busi-
ness trip to Paris and Rome.
Further down the street we see Thom Brown,
realty broker, entering an employment bureau. Ann
Lynam, his secretary, has just announced her inten-
tion to leave his employment to marry her high
In Times Square we watch the newscast praising
Donnie Morris and Bill Reeder, who have taken the
places of "Bosh" Prichard and Tommy Thompson on
the champion Philadelphia Eagles.
Under the guiding hand of the Class of '50 spirit
we approach New York University, where we find
Ruth Wheatley teaching the principles of musical
Passing by the Roxy Theater we see vacationing
primary teacher Barbara Queener with Carolyn Ken-
dall, well-versed teacher of French. The two are
waiting for tickets for the evening performance of
the Rockettes, of which group Nancy Draper is now
a star member.
Efficient executive secretary Virginia Fisher and
her friend Frances Mitchell, private receptionist, are
having lunch in the Hotel Astor dining room with
their boss, joseph Wortz, candy bar tycoon, and his
capable advertising manager, Dave Austin. They are
being entertained by Michele Moran, alias Anne
Vernon, who is a favorite blues singer with Francois
McCall's top-rate band. Their meal has been pre-
pared by chef Thomas Baity, who learned his cul-
inary arts in high school.
In another corner, super-salesman Joe Ferguson
is attempting to sell a new tractor to modern farmer
Dick Thomas. Seated with them and extolling the
virtues of the tractor is Harry Moore, prominent
businessman and president of the local "liars' club".
The man just entering the dining room is Frank
Dukes, promising successor of Rudolph Valentino.
He is accompanied by his valet and bodyguard, Her-
bert Dempsey, They are joining for lunch Frank's
associate, Latin crooner "Ricardo'i Lindberg.
The old Alma Mater has added three former stu-
dents to its faculty. Bobbie-Lou Stoessel is teaching
physical education, Jimmy Chowning, a Spanish
genius, is a linguistic instructor, and Pauline Pepper
teaches "sweet young things" the art of cookery.
Paul Peters, daring sailor of the seven seas, is ex-
pected to dock his ship, "The Claire", at Baltimore.
William Flynn, professional wrestler, is aboard. He
will soon begin an exhibition tour in this country.
One of the graduates to remain in Wilmington is
Christie MacAl1ister, who is now married and owns
a garage. He operates the Christall Movie Theater
in his spare time.
The Class of '50 spirit is smiling as this last scene
from tomorrow fades away from our sight. Then
slowly he, too, vanishes into the past, but not before
we have heard his last faint words.
"Remember," we hear him say, "I have shown you
what is possible. I do not control tomorrow, it is in
your hands. The future is what you make it."

Clair Flower -- Morning Glory
"Who does not advance falls behind"
Between ine Foofn17ls And ine Mountains
Every challenge in life is a mountain,
Every summit a victory won.
Every climb means continual striving,
Every peak means a task well done.
The first tasks urge on through the foothills
Which, to feel yet untried, may seem steep,
Each new task a lighter endeavor,
Each lesson a crevice to leap.
The mind of the pilgrim is planted
With the seeds of knowledge and lore.
He learns by mistakes of the soldiers
And statesmen who have gone on before.
The journey of life must be made on one road
Along which every pilgrim must go.
The school is a map that may show us the way,
Teaching the way we must know.
Twelve years ago we set oh' on the road
That leads to the foothills of life.
Books and blackboards have mapped out the way,
And learning has played on the marshalling fife.
The road hasn't always been straight as a die,
It often has twisted and turned.
It has wandered from written lessons in books,
But there are other lessons we've learned.
We've learned those two things which will not let
But will stick in our hearts till the end,
Two things which no books or no blackboards could
Fair play and the worth of a friend.
Our climb through the foothills is over.
There are dangerous mountains ahead.
New lives are beginning for each of those friends
Of the twelve school years that are fled.
Voices come down to us out of the past
Of soldiers and statesmen from days long gone byg
Our forefathers' voices speaking to youth-
We must heed well what they cry.
You've been given a great free country,
The tools to make the old world fine and newg
The foothills are behind, the mountains are ahead,
And the rest is up to you!

The Student Council has had an especially active year
due to the fact that this was Mount Pleasant's first year as
a full-fledged high school. The Council has been able to
accomplish many of its aims and goals through the forma-
tion of several committees. These committee groups
worked on various projects having to do with student
activities, building and grounds, assembly programs, stu-
dent handbook, safety patrol, usher corps, lost and found
department, student publicity, and school scrapbook. Two
big annual dances, the Halloween Dance and the Winter
Hop, were sponsored by the Council as well as the sale of
Student Activities Tickets and several community drives.
With the accrediting evaluation of Mount Pleasant High
School this year, the Council was kept busy preparing for
this important event. It also took an attive part in the
activities of the New Castle County Student Council As-
sociation. The Council is under the guidance and adviser-
ship of Mr. James Gennaria and Miss Ethel Roe.

The Athletic Association has had a busy year building
Mount Pleasant's athletic program. This organization,
under the guidance of Mr. Howard Parsons, adviser, has
sponsored dances, the sale of school pennants, scrolls, ties,
decals, book covers and hats, has encouraged inter-scho-
lastic contests, and operated a concessions stand at football
games. It conducted the annual magazine sale drive, the
profit from which was used to buy new athletic equipment.
This year the Athletic Association purchased new uniforms
and jackets for the varsity basketball teams as well as
furnishing the school with new outside bleachers and can-
vas for the football field. The constitution of the A. A.
is now in the process of being written.

Tiff JUNIOR PROM
The big event for the Class of '50 in its junior year was the
semi-formal junior Prom which was given in the school gym on
Saturday night, May 21. That night the gym took on a new
look with "french" blue, white, and silver decorations. Here
and there red roses were woven into white lattice-work and the
whole room was bathed in pale blue light. The theme "Blue
Moon-Blue Room" was well carried out and around the floor
were small individual tables, each decorated with a colorful vase
of flowers. The forty couples who attended the grand affair
danced to the strains of a fine dance band from 8:30 till 12:00.
The evening was the highlight of the year and will not be for-
gotten by the Class of '50.

The Class of '50 in its junior year chose to present as its

On the nights of December 9 and 10, the
Class of '50 presented as its Senior Play a
satirical comedy, "The Tavern," written by
George M. Cohan.
"On a wild and stormy night there ar-
rives at a lonely tavern a romantic Vagabond,
a homeless woman, and the Governor of the
State and his family, who have been held
up by robbers at a neighboring crossroads.
Suspicion develops as to the identity of each
of the characters in turn. To the vagabond
it is deliciously like a drama, and he de-
lights in directing the characters in their
parts. Of course, the cause of the humor-
ous mixups is made clear at the end."

The Green Knights, in their second sea-
son of varsity football, fielded one of the
strongest teams in the state. Under the able
coaching of "Les" King and his assistants,
"Bill" Crowther and "Charlie" Bomboy, the
boys from Bellefonte were victorious in six
out of nine games. The Knights started off
the season by defeating the Marple-New-
town team from Pennsylvania, but went on
to lose the next two games, the first to a
strong Claymont eleven, the second to the
boys from Langhorne, Pennsylvania. In
the following four games the Knights were
the decisive victors. Although the odds
were against Mt. Pleasant in the skirmishes
with rival teams, A. I, du Pont and Newark,
the King's men came through triumphantly
in what proved to be the two best games
of the season. An unexpected defeat by the
Spartans of Upper Merion, Pennsylvania,
stopped their four-game winning streak. In
the final game for fifteen seniors, the Green
Knights ended a successful season by down-
ing a fighting Archmere eleven.

In the 1949-50 basketball season the Green Knights compiled an enviable record with
Howard Parsons as their competent coach assisted by "Bill" Crowther. The high geared
offense which scored 53 points per game and a defense which limited the opponents to 41
points per game clearly showed their superiority on the court. "Bill" Reeder set a new state
scoring record with 537 points, averaging 15 points per game, After a rather mediocre start,
in which the team lost five out of eight games, the Knights began to hit their stride and
went on to win twelve of the next fourteen games to finish a successful season with a
15-7 record, ranking fifth in the state.

"Charlie" Bomboy are faced with a very
promising situation in baseball this year.
With the entire varsity squad returning
from a previous season which netted live
wins, one tie, and six losses, the team is
"shaping up" nicely. In two scheduled
games and two practice games the Green
Knights have beaten Brown Vocational
twice 2-1, 6-2, Howard 12-9, and tied P. S.
Having a veteran infield, a good catch-
ing and pitching staff, and a fair outfield
the team has high hopes and looks for-
ward to a successful season in 1950.

The varsity hockey team fought hard and
played well although they recorded only one
victory, In the season's first game the Mt.
Pleasant lassies lost to a hardy team from
Conrad High. However, the next game was
an overwhelming victory for the stick-wield-
ing girls of M.P.H.S. over Tatnall School.
The following two contests were defeats by
Claymont, a local rival, and by William
Penn. On November 7, after a close match
of performance and skill, the Bellefonte
girls conceded victory to the "blue and
gold" of A. I. du Pont. Mt. Pleasant was
outscored in the last two games of the sea-
son, The "green and white" team was
under the training and guidance of Miss
Ethel Hobbs, coach, and Miss Dorothy
Biddle, assistant coach.

In the first year of high school basketball
the girls' varsity team displayed much prom-
ise and spirit while winning four out of
eleven games and tying one. The lassies of
Mount Pleasant emerged victoriously in the
contests with St. Elizabeth's, William Penn,
Tatnall, and the Faculty and conceded a tie
after a thrilling game with Middletown.
However, luck was against the "green and
white" in the skirmishes with A. I. du Pont,
Claymont, Newark, Conrad, Howard, and
in the hrst game with Middletown. The
team was ably coached by Miss Ethel Hobbs
and Miss Dorothy Biddle.
The junior varsity players were more suc-
cessful and completed the season with three
wins, one tie, and three defeats. The V.'s
