We, the Senior Class of Mount Pleasant High School, do, upon leaving the
Alma Mater in this year of 1951, dedicate our yearbook to the Board of Educa-
tion of the Mount Pleasant Special School District in gratitude for the many
things they have contributed to better our school and community.
In the rather grim and dangerous
period ahead, your country is going to
find it necessary to rely more and more
upon the strength of its youth. You will
probably find that from this point on, life
will become a little more sharp in ,focus
and a little more serious in meaning.
You will find yourself more and more on
your own, where you will have to bear
the consequences of your own deci-
sions. Fortunately, you are fine repre-
sentatives of American Youth. Your
ideals are lofty, your initiative is strong,
and your resourcefulness is unlimited.
May God give you courage to change
the things that can and need to be
changedp the serenity to accept the
things that cannot be changed, and the
wisdom to know the difference.
God Speed and Good Luck,
IOHN F. HEINEY, Superintendent
Congratulations on your fine achieve-
ment and best wishes to each of you in
your future endeavors.
I know there have been times when
"the going" has seemed a bit rough,
times when discouragement threatened
to blot out the happiness and content-
ment that we as human beings seek in
striving for success. However, the in-
centive to "keep going" should always
be a realization of the fact that "behind
each cloud, the sun still shines."
Your graduation here not only marks
the end of a task well done, it heralds
the beginning of a greater challenge.
In a world torn by infringement, intol-
erance, and wars, do not cringe from
the necessity of meeting issues boldly
with principle, resolution, and strength
and above all, keep faith in the Divine
Master of the universe.
E. R. SCHWING-ER, Principal

MEMBERED BY ALL.
September 1947! That was the memorable date when the
class of 1951, then 77 in all, entered its FRESHMAN YEAR.
We were really getting up in the world and felt that at
last we could say, "We are in high school." For this all-
important history-making year Peter Dietz was elected
president, Betty Andrews, vice-presidentg Marilyn Stiggins,
secretaryp and, Mark Kuehn, treasurer. Also elected to
advise the class and keep it headed in the right direction
were Mrs. Hofel, Mrs. Brindle, Miss Fteiff, and Mr. Hickman.
Soon activities were in full swing and members of the
Freshman Class joined with the top class Sophomores in
playing Mt. Pleasant's football games and winning two out
of three. This was also the year that the Mt. Pleasant choir
came into existence.
Time passed rapidly and soon the class Christmas party
was being held in the art room amid homemade fudge,
candy, cookies, cakes, soft drinks, mistletoe, and many,
This year, in connection with our civics class and Mr.
King, we visited the Court House in Wilmington for a touch
of legislative atmosphere and later the University of Penn-
sylvania, where we had our first touch of college life.
Before most of us realized what had happened, we were
caught up in the swirl of activities with planning of the
Freshman Frolic, our first orchestra dance. Finally the
"Spring Theme" was carried out in the decorations, the
lnstrumentalists under the direction of lack Reynolds were
engaged, and everyone was preparing to come to our first
class dance. lt was decided by vote that everyone would
come stag. It is memorable to mention that few went home
At length the end of the year arrived and in an assembly
Lols Watt was awarded the American Legion Award for
girls, and Peter Dietz the one for boys.
Soon the fall of 1948 had arrived and we were all back
in school again with one new member. Elections were held
early this year and Peter Dietz was re-elected president.
New officers were Roger Gordon as vice-president, Caroline
Dill as secretary, and Barbara Woodward as treasurer. One
veteran advisor, Miss Reiff, returned to guide us and her
newly elected associates were Mr. Cole, Miss Oliva, and
Football, hockey, and dances filled most of the schedule
this year and the months flew by till soon the annual Christ-
mas party was being held in the commercial rooms.
After some exciting basketball games, spring and the
baseball season rapidly approached. This year we really
had a good team. The band was also improving and to
everyone's happiness made a good showing in the
Memorial Day Parade with their new green and white
A little before this, though, in the grand month of May,
and on the 7th day, the Sophomore Hop was held. This was
also a dressy dance and many remember the fun we had
decorating the gymnasium in accordance with the Hawai-
Summer came and went, and soon we were back within
the brick walls to serve our Iunior year. Roger Gordon and
Carolyn Dill were each re-elected, but Roger now held the
office of president. Newcomers to the "slate" were Doris
Humphery as vice-president, and Mark Kuehn as treasurer.
Three of the advisors, Miss Oliva, Mr. Cole, and Mr, Strain,
by name, returned to serve their terms as now permanent
advisors of the Class of 1951.
October was the month of months, for in this year two
new things happened. The ring committee began its work
and soon representatives from Millard F. Davis were at
the school measuring our fingers for that famous "class
Several money-making projects were sponsored this
year. These were the selling of concessions at the football
and basketball games, the selling of packages of three
name perfumes, and the selling of Christmas cards. Many
of the class worked hard on these activities and, although
the class did not by any means turn millionaire, the treas-
ury began to lose a little of its sick, dejected color.
Midway in the month of November the Senior Choir gave
a concert. This time there was a special attraction besides
the singing, and that was the addition of green choir
gowns with white stoles.
Again Christmas drew near and the party was held. This
time dancing and Iay Webb's entertainment on his guitar
were the main attractions as well as the sport of fondly
gazing on a class ring.
The first "Miss Green Flash" contest was sponsored by
the newspaper. In an assembly Phyllis Rowe, editor, intro-
duced the candidates, four Iuniors, and four Seniors, to the
audience and told a little about each girl and her high
school activities thus far. The four girls from our class were
Ioan Williams, Lois West, Barbara Woodward, and Ann
Louise Hillburn. These had been chosen by several
teachers as candidates because of literary ability as well
as personality. Voting followed the assembly and the
secret was kept until the coronation at the dance when the
queen, Lois West, was awarded the honor and gifts.
February brought an exciting event for many oi our class.
This was a trip, sponsored by Mr. Miller's history class, to
the United Nations Assembly at Lake Success.
March 10th and llth "popped up" in no time and the
Iunior play "The Ghost House," was being presented. It
was a mystery, as the title implies, and we will never
forget the terrified screams of the audience when the pic-
ture secret panel began to open, or Bob Leshem's embar-
rassment when he fell into the French door in the scenery
and broke the adhesive tape construction.
Another project we had this year was the carnival held
on April 22. Here we had booths for bean-bag throw, ring
toss, "atom balloon" dart tests, and the fishing well. At
night, ot course, bingo and the orchestra dance were the
main attractions, along with sticky apples, popsicles, soda
pop. and hot dogs.
Finally May 27 dawned and, as night closed in, many
of our class members were seen at dinner parties or madly
getting dressed for the first semi-formal dance sponsored
by our class, the Iunior Prom. This was quite the dance and
a wonderful efiect was created by paper iris, dance pro-
grams, and the theme, "Deep Purple." Ioseph l-laverback's
orchestra played and really set the mood.
Soon the end of the year had come and in an assembly
Doris Humphrey was given an award for a high average in
Our Senior Year! At last it had come and to many of us
it was unbelievable, for we didn't feel older, we didn't
look older, and worst of all they didn't treat us like we
Soon we resigned ourselves to the fact that your Senior
Year is not nearly as much glory as hard work and studies
started. In class meeting Roger Gordon was in by a land-
slide and Lois Watt became vice-president. Doris
Humphery and Kenneth Clapp were the new secretary and
Yearbook work had now been started and deadlines
were rapidly sneaking up. Pictures were taken and every-
one did his best to be the one in the front of the picture.
The girls' hockey team this year came out of its slump
and beat Claymont, Tatnall, A. I. duPont. and others. They
also journeyed to the University of Delaware and par-
ticipated in the Delaware hockey field day. The backfield
of the team won second prize. The football team also
worked hard to have the honor of wearing a jersey.
On Monday, November 6, Mr. Remcho took his chemistry
classes to Washington. The students enjoyed many things,
including a tour of Mount Vernon, a visit to the tomb of the
Unknown Soldier, the Lincoln Memorial, Iefferson Memorial,
the White House, Blair House, and the Smithsonian Insti-
tute with its many buildings and art gallery. Also it is
memorable to mention many of the group walked up the
Washington Monument and some both ways. My, we were
crazy, weren't we? Many remember this trip for the expe-
riences on the bus, including for many the "first cigarette."
December 8 and 9 brought a big event to view in the
form of the Senior play, All the actors and actresses were
superb in their parts and with the help of Mrs. Margaret
Nelson, our English teacher, they did a fine job of the play,
"Charlie's Aunt." Everyone will remember the big kick they
got out of Peter Dietz trying to act like a woman in the
part of Charlie's aunt. Everyone backstage will never
forget the bustle involving the three changes of unique
scenery. This play, as most plays are at Mt. Pleasant, was
followed by parties each night: Friday night the "blitz" was
at the home of Phyllis Rowe while Saturday night the home
of Marion Stinchecum was the scene with excitement. Stu-
dents from Yeadon, Pennsylvania, and Newark, Delaware.
were present at the play and seemed to enjoy the produc-
tion. They had previously presented the play which was
viewed by the cast of our play.
The "Miss Green Flash" dance was again held and from
eight candidates, including the four Seniors, Betty
McCormick, Ann Hilburn, Beverly Maxwell, and Dorothy
Peterson, Ann Hilbum was chosen for the honor. At the
dance she was crowned by Lois West, "Miss Green Flash
After much work and not nearly enough time to prepare,
the carnival was once more upon us. Roy Sullivan and
Robert Leshem were co-chairmen and kept the ball rolling
evenly. Bingo, booths, and the dance were again featured.
The Senior Ball was held the night of March sixteenth in
the Du Barry Room of the Hotel duPont. Everyone who came

Tl-IE CARNIVAL OF LIFE
The carnival gates lie open,
The portals of Life are they,
Multitudes throng to enter,
All realize they must stay.
There is no turning back from this,
The greatest show on earth.
Man cannot find escape from Life,
Save through the hands of Death.
The paths ahead are crowded:
Multitudes wish to share
Romance and thrills illusioned
Which will be offered there.
Yet in amongst the merriment
There lurks in every course
Some bitter disappointment
So often failure's source.
And, if defeat should come to man
'Gainst Life he ought not rebel,
F or he's but falteredg Life still goes on
As an endless carousel.
These twelve years have brought us nearer
The goal each strives to attain.
Along Life's paths we've yet far to go
Sometimes to lose, sometimes to gain.
But for this carnival, this game of chance,
A name may someday go unhailed.
Yet reward comes to the steadfast soul,
No one will ever say he's failed!
Class oi l952
The class of 1952 has had an active history. During this
class's ninth year, the major activities consisted of the Fresh-
man Frolic with the "park" theme and the roller skating party
which the present eleventh grade originated.
Its tenth year was remembered by the Sophomore Hop with
the theme of "a seaport cafe" and the "Shamrock Shindig"
which was a money-making dance. Again, the energetic class
sponsored its roller skating party.
This year the Iunior Class sponsored a dance which they
called the "Harvest I-lop." On April thirteenth and fourteenth,
they gave "Personal Appearance," their class play, Directing
the play were Mrs. T. Boucher and Mr. C. Bomboy. Their big

"THE GHOST HOUSE"
THE JUNIOR PLAY
Last year, as our first dramatic attempt, we pre-
sented "The Ghost House," a mystery-comedy
Written by Robert St. Clair, and published by the
I-lever Publishing Company. Miss Celia Oliva was
our director with Mr. Donal Miller as the assistant
director. For six weeks after the play was chosen,
several riotous practices were held each week.
Then, as the time for the presentation drew near,
the cast buckled down the last two weeks, and
presented a polished performance on March ll and
l2 with great success.

arrived and with it the lunior Prom.
About 8:30 Joseph Haverbeclds orches-
tra began to play the first selection and
the floor was filled with dancing cou-
ples. "Deep Purple" Was the theme of
the prom and Was carried out in a
garden scene done in varying shades
of purple. The refreshments also had
a touch of purple to them. Two sheet
cakes were iced with lavender icing.
Punch was served With the cake. Pic-
tures Were taken at the prom so the
couples could long remember this gala
event, At midnight Weary, but happy

On the evenings of December 8th and 9th, the curtains
parted on the world-famous comedy, "Charleys Aunt
written by Brandon Thomas and presented by the Class
of 1951 under the direction of Mrs. Margaret P Nelson
Both the audience, moved to tears of laughter by the
hilarious antics of Peter Dietz, and the members of the class
agreed that it was one of the most successful productions
"Two undergraduates at Oxford, lack Chesney and
Charles Wykeham, are violently in love with two young
ladies, whom they invite to their rooms to meet Charley s
wealthy aunt from Brazil fwhere the nuts come froml
Unfortunately, the aunt cannot come, and the two boys
are left without a chaperonee for their sweethearts This
problem is solved by forcing another undergraduate
T Fancourt Babberly, into posing as Charley's Aunt The
two girls hug and kiss him: two men make love to him
Then the real aunt and Babberly's former sweetheart
appear. Out of the comic confusion that results comes a
It is all over now and all that we have to
remind us oi the big night are empty wallets,
faded corsages, beat-up dancing slippers, and
many happy memories. The gala Senior Ball
was held on Friday, March 16th in the DuBarry
R . .
oom ot the Hotel du Pont. To the lilting strains
of lack Garnett's orchestra, the Seniors and
eir guests danced the hours away. Before
and after the ball, several private parties were

dance was a wonderful success and will be

This year proved an eventful one for
Mount Pleasant's musical department.
Under the direction oi Starr L. Cole the
band and choir have carved a niche for
themselves in our cornmunitys musical
Last tall saw our band in full dress out
on the football field inspiring our team
on to victory and when basketball came
they were ever present keeping our
spirits high. We also saw our band in
the Christmas and Memorial Day pa-
The choir was every bit as busy, with
their concerts at Christmas and in the R

Football, one of the most exciting school activi-
ties, again opened the sporting scene at Mount
Pleasant in 1950. Coach "Les" King, with his able
assistants, "Charlie" Bomboy and i'Bill" Crowther,
put the Green Knights through a rugged eight-
game schedule of which they were able to win
only two, while losing six.
The boys opened with a loss to Salesianum on
the Mount Pleasant field and followed this game
with losses to Claymont and Wilmington High on
succeeding dates. The fact that all three losses
were sustained under lights is very significant
in view of the fact that no Mount Pleasant football
team has ever been victorious under these con-

ditions. The Knights rebounded on the following
Saturday by outplaying Elkton. This victory brought
the team to a fever pitch for the annual game with
A. l. du Pontg however, this proved to be of no avail,
as the Knights found the going "rough" and were
defeated by A. I. Undaunted, our boys roared back
to a decisive win over the "Castilians" the following
week. After holding Newark to a 6-14 advantage
during a thrilling first half, the Knights succumbed
to their powerful opponents offense in the second
half. The final game of the season, which was the
final for seven Seniors, saw the Knights humbled by

hope to better.
The fans at Mount Pleasant eagerly
