Text from Pages 1 - 92 of the 1950 volume:

I. J X r 72,1 -3' 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. ic Y Wx X x lg ffv ,Y K js i B rj tvv"".7 U ll A ,QI A XX I ix, ' 'I K NQQ-4 DEDICATION 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. 00 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. , Sflperifzlendent ADM Nl 7'R'47l0lV DEAR FRIENDS: 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 gf Prifzripal Q79 'Q' -1:15 1 190 JAMES A.

NN D 'V 1 1 xx, "Tiff BH! HAS' 70lD" 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 secretary-treasurer. 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- urer. 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 acquired. 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 finances. 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 Worrad. 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 auditorium. 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 career. 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 our class. 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. --PAULINE PEPPER ,. ff iliaat will Anil Glvatamrnt GDI' Ellie Glleiaa 091' 'EH f ' X I, the Senior Class of 1950, being of sound body l Q and particularly sound mind, do draw up for poster- X. ity this last will and testament.

Witnesses: MARTHA SHILLITO, MARJORIE SNYDER Testator SUZANNE NEUMEYER WILLIAM FLYNN P KSN rs ka! I ' MW E 'F 0 X X ,7 39 l00KlN6 AHEAD 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- row. 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 hygienist. In the outer ofiice Margaret McGroarty is discussing her married life with Beverly Gar- nett, originator of the famous X '41 'Q S fs, '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 Philadelphia. 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 Avenue. 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 Wilbert Davidson. 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 school sweetheart. 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 composition. 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." -MARTHA SHILLITO, ANNE VERNON, FRANK DUKES Clan Colors - Green and Gold Clair Flower -- Morning Glory Clan Motto "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 us down, But will stick in our hearts till the end, Two things which no books or no blackboards could teach: 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! -MARTHA SHILLITO gi-T 3 --,.,1--nv -gg:-'I .

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.

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.

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.

"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." CAST The Vagabond .,.......... Thom Brown The Woman ...,... ,.... M artha Shillito The Tavern Keeper ........

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.

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.

BASEBAZZ Coach Elmer Fennick and his assistant "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. duPont 3-3. 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. 9 . "" ' ,.

QJKQ LADIES FIRST A somewhat-scandalous case was being tried in a French law court, and a vast crowd of the curious was on hand, anxious to hear every word of the testimony. But the judge had different ideas. "The people here," he announced, "are probably not aware of the nature of the case we are about to try. I feel it incumbent on me to request all re- spectable Women to withdraw." No one made a move. The judge then said, "Now that all the respectable women have left, the sergeant will eject the others." -Liguorian SECOND CHOICE My grandfather used to tell young girls who came to him for advice on how to find an ideal man: "Never go out looking for an ideal man-a husband is a lot easier to find." -HERB Smuman FEMININ E VERSION Asked on an examination to "give an account of the creation of man," a small Los Angeles schoolgirl wrote: "First God created Adam. He looked at him for a while and said, 'I think if I tried again I could do betterf Then He created Eve." -IRVING HOFFMAN Wm. J. Mundy Charles F.

Pike "Curtain Call" To THE CLASS OF 1950: Speaking in industrial terms you are the product of your school. A company must have justifiable pride in its product to exist. Unless that product fills a human need, advances to how- ever minute a degree the course of civilization, and is a factor toward the attainment of the mental, spiritual and economic peace which is the goal of mankindg it has no reason for being, it will not "sell" and its producer will fail. The same tests may well be applied to the life of an indi- vidual. You are proud of your school - and justly so. It has met these tests. It is far more important to you, however, that your school should be justifiably proud of you. With every best wish for your success in life. WORTH STEEL COMPANY Claymont, Delaware C. R. SIMON 6: CO.
