DEDICATION 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 1951 CLASS ADVISERS ln concluding twelve years of basic preparation for life, we feel certain that you will ,go on to greater achievement.

WE LOOK BACK 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, many people. 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 that way. 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 inf! 491 :fd ' ,pe E J ' xx: slllhfluu- 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 Mr. Strain. 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 uniforms. 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- ian theme. 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 r1ng.' 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 history. 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 were older. 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 treasurer respectively. 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 of l950." 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 certainly felt very regal while dancing to the music of Iack Garnett's orchestra. Breakfasts. dinners, openhouses, and many other types of parties were held. In Ianuary the members oi the Senior class voted to select the candidates for May Queen. The results were that Ioan Williams, Lois Watt, Lois West, Doris Humphrey, Ann Hilhurn, Iane Reynolds, Marilyn Stiggins, and Doris Peters were eligible for the honor. From these the Queen, Doris Humphrey, was picked by an election conducted in the Senior high grades. She certainly looked lovely with her court at the ceremonies. In the spring we all enjoyed our Senior trip to New York, and we all had loads of fun seeing a good many of the sights. Soon graduation time was here. Baccalaureate was held in the school with an exceptional speaker and finally on Iune fourteenth in the year of 1951, we graduated. Free at last! MOTTO:"Today,we,Cottow tomorromwe lead.

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! Betty Andrews CLASS ?

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.

This year was an eventful one for Mount Pleasants governing body. At the beginning of the year they sponsored the second annual sale of student activity tickets and enrolled over eighty percent of the high school. On October 20 the Council sponsored a Hal- loween dance for junior and senior high. February 3 was the date of the annual Student Council orchestra dance, which was a combined couples dance. During the year the Student Council also sponsored a Red Cross drive, had charge of the safety patrol, and ushers. T In Ianuary the Council was host to a N.C.C.S,C.A, meeting here. This spring the Student Council sponsored the first annual Career Day, an event which is ex- pected to become a tradition.

Also all classes observed this, with the teachers changing place with the students. Student Council elections ended one of the Councils busiest years. ,kenaf Arinsric ASSOCIATION d taudt, Barbara Row one lelt to ri ht Beverl Harding, Robert Leshem, Ann Hilburn, lean Cornthwaite, Marilyn Stiggins, Rennie S L I Black, Roger McClZlldn, IudyYOrne, Mr. Parsons.

Out of the comic confusion that results comes a SENICDR BALL 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 th ' eir guests danced the hours away.

Under the direction oi Starr L. Cole the band and choir have carved a niche for themselves in our cornmunitys musical entertainment. 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- rades. The choir was every bit as busy, with their concerts at Christmas and in the R can Yonex spring, and all agree that they are osemarie H really worth our highest praise. qnmqnn Congratulations are also in order tor the pianists, Ioan Porter and Rosemarie Hartmann.

FOOTBALL 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- Mount Pleasant 6 Salesianum 24 Mount Pleasant 6 Claymont 24 Mount Pleasant 0 Wilmington High Z7 Mount Pleasant 19 Elkton 6 Mount Pleasant U A.

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 Archmere Academy. Y I .- ..
