BUT FIRSTQA WCRD FROM THE EDITOR As graduates of Mount Pleasant we now have a real choice to make. Either deliberately or unconsciously we may remain static intellectually, physically, and spiritually, or we may choose to progress toward fields of higher learning, perform tasks of endurance and difficulty, meet exper- iences to challenge our stamina and imagination. The i958 Green Leaf pictures our present-who we are, and pictures where we can go-what we could become. ln selecting certain celebrities from the world at large, the staff has honored individuals who have reached the "top" in their field. Our Green Leaf theme suggests the possibilities which might be attained by any of our classmates in their future lives. From today's graduates will evolve tomorrow's leaders, musicians, athletes. The present is ours now, the future is ours tomorrow. We, the staff, can only point to the future with those of the present who have already found success. Our Green Leaf is not lust a cata- logue of the seniors, but a chapter in the history of Mount Pleasant as well as a chapter in our own lives. Our wish has been to record on these pages, that which in years to come, may serve to remind us of the life and aspirations we shared together here. lt is a reflec- tion of people going forward into the unknown future. Who knows what it holds? H" 9 ' sf! Witt A' VW! N .gifs Q?sf.rm.iH..f"1i .ws iirfaacswe H1551-2ifff1wr.iwifffrr ft. rm- if" ' 'I V1 'fm S'fff'rif?si11iiif?1222?'if1xf'sash-iiffiir HSA M... . TH A 5?

' ' Wm W. mf- ,wuuvf V -, ,NWI W FOR HE S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW . . We, the class of 1958, take great pleasure and pride in dedicating our yearbook to a man well-known to all Mount Pleasant students, but to whom we, as seniors, feel a special closeness. We remember the talk which he gave at our first class meeting when we were freshmen, the encouragement that he has supplied during the last four years, and the free time that he has given us to help make our dances and class proiects successful, To him has fallen what is undoubtedly the touchiest iob which an administrator performs: the task of discipline. lt is a difficult duty to fill out detention slips and suspension notes and still maintain the love and respect of the students. This individual has met the challenge with an air of diplomacy which would do iustice to an ambassador of the United States. We can still see him on the roof of the new gym filming all the excitement of our home football games, occasionally swinging the camera to the right or left to record visual proof of one of our more economically minded classmates scurrying over the fence. Who can forget his rolled up sleeves or the western music emanating from his office at such early hours! ln us he has inspired loyalty, honor, and truth. His ideals have been transformed into accomplishments, his beliefs into positive action. He is admired by parents, students and faculty members alike. His natural friendliness, iovial nature and genuine interest in the welfare of every individual has greatly helped to span the gap between the administration and the student body. To the Assistant Principal, Mr. Charles H. Bomboy, we proud- ly dedicate the eighth volume of the Green Leaf. Dedicafivu LEST WE FCDRGET - A GREAT LADY l E Appreciation is one of those finer feelings that comes only with maturity. As freshmen and sopho- mores, we failed to realize the invaluable assistance which we received from one of our faculty members. Now, as seniors, we know that we can never repay the full measure of gratitude which this woman deserves. No other single person has contributed so much to our success and unity as a class. We will always remember how she made the characters from the world of English literature come alive to our understanding and how she iniected new vitality into literary history and English grammar. As a class advisor, an educator, the director of our senior play, and as a friend, she has been a valued counselor. Her carefully planned course of study makes us wonder if she first coined the phrase, "Be Prepared." Yes, Mrs. Margaret P. Nelson, we are prepared, and for this we ap- preciate you. gggg 4 1 iq.-AK . , 6 W ER STUDENTSS G EAA MATLR i-idii All iiaii io iivee, Mouni pieasami Loud iivy praises ring.

Running a school is noT unlike running a governmenT. Ours would noT be a Thriving, growing, happy school communiTy were iT noT for The excellenT leadership displayed by our adminisTraTors. T M S hwinger, Principal, M P :- A The years to come will tind many M.P. graduates in important administrative offices. Having been a part of a well-run school and striving to maintain the ideals ot good administration as exemplified by our nation's president, Mr. Dwight D. Eisenhower, we are ready to become "leaders ot tomorrow." tt r X77 ?- lf' PRESIDENT EISENHOVVER ff CITIZENS OF DISTINCTION: THE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Mount Pleasant Board of Education seeks always to improve the quality of education. Through the close co-operation of the Board with the teachers and parents, its members have succeeded in doing a splendid iob. This past year the Board's main interest has been the building program. A referendum was passed which provided for additions to each of the elementary schools and for facilities for the nevv high school. Also in the past year the Board enlarged the library of our present high school, invested money in new books, and vvorked on a program for the gifted child. The officers of the Board are Mr. Robert V. Huber, President, Mrs. Jane McAdam, Vice President, and Mr. John F. Heiney, Secretary. Also serving on the Board are Mr. John M. Fletcher and Dr. V. R. Hardy. ROBERT V. HUBER President MRS. JANE MCADAM JOHN M. FLETCHER JOHN F. HEINEY DR. V. R. HARDY MR JQHN F. HEINEY . . .CHIEF EXECUTIVE AT MT. PLEASANT Mr. John F.

Since Mr. Heiney has been at Mount Pleasant, many of our new school buildings have been completed under his direction. The new elementary schools, the new gym, and the additions to the wing of our high school were all proiects which he headed. The new Mount Pleasant High School, now under construction, is one of the major achievements of Nlr. l-leiney's administration. He has directed us well towards a greater Mount Pleasant. MR. E. R. SCHWINGER . . . MT. PLEASANT'S POPULAR PRINCIPAL We at Mount Pleasant feel that we have a fine school. Much of the success of a fine school depends on the kind of a principal the school has. We feel we have a truly fine person in that post. Mr. E. R. Schwinger, our tall, distinguished principal, has been at Mount Pleasant since l945. He received his B.S. degree from Shippensburg State Teachers College and also did graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers University, and the University of Delaware. Although he doesn't have much leisure time, Mr. Schwinger is interested in s electronics, woodworking and photography. He is now serving on the Executive Board of the Delaware Association of School Administrators and is immediate past President of the Brandywine Rotary Club. Mr. Schwinger is very interested in Student Council work and democratic techniques in School Administration. lt is a tribute to him that he is respected by the students and faculty. l l2 KEY MEN IN KEY POSTS Mr. Charles A. Bomboy, well known to all of us as the Assis- tant Principal, has been here at Mount Pleasant since 1946, it was in 1954 that he received the position which he now holds. He is a graduate of Blooms- burg State Teachers College, where he received his B.S. de- gree. He received his M.A. de- gree from Columbia University. As the school disciplinarian, Mr. Bomboy calls himself the "mean- est man in school," but the stu- dents really believe that he is "one ofthe nicest men in school." Mr. Robert A. Oldis, who also was principal of a school in New Jersey, has been with us here at Mount Pleasant for three years. He graduated from East Stroudsburg State Teachers Col- lege with a B.S. degree and re- ceived his M.A. degree from Columbia University.

Mount Pleasant Senior High School Under Construction . . . Carrcrott Elementary School. gill tl ' tt it A school day begins with a bus ride. To every senior high school stu- dent at Mount Pleasant, a variety of courses is offered. The initial step for each person is to decide which curriculum he is going to follow. For the prospective college student, the academic course is provided. This emphasizes the physical and social sciences, mathematics, and languages. Also included are courses such as art, choral, and public speaking. Most of the classes are electives, how- ever, there are several which are required each year and must be completed for graduation. The goal of this curriculum is to give each participating pupil a good basic background in many fields, so that he may continue his stu- dies in college and then specialize in his chosen area. The person interested in the secretarial field will probably choose the business curriculum. HE ACCENT IS ON CURRICULUM Here courses are offered in typing, filing, and shorthand as well as in English, Mathematics and some social studies. Practical experience is. also provided by a co-operative program of work and classroom instruction during part of the sen- ior year. Many business pupils work in the offices at school to gain practice and to observe. Still another kind of study is given under the general curricu- lum. Stress in this course is put on vocational training and edu- cation. Basic classes, English, his- tory, P.O.D., are also necessary and compulsory. Much time is spent, however, in the wood and metal shops and the home ec lab. The general course tries to pre- pare a student so that he will be ready to fulfill the requirements of a iob immediately after gradu- ation. We learn safety in driving And how to operate a lathe Even clean typewriters And push-ups! And how to make dresses FOR ONE MEMORABLE YEAR WE WERE THE E v I e wi ran e il 26 Q Class Robert SENIORS The classes were The mos? basic part of our school life.

ROBERT FROST MEET OUR ADVISORS SO GREAT IS THEIR HELP The senior class advisors for this year were: Mrs. Margaret P. Nelson, Mrs. Elizabeth Walsh, and Mr. Starr L. Cole. These ad- visors know well the responsi- bility of guiding seniors since they have advised previous graduating classes. Such work as the organiza- tion of class meetings, dances, plays, play programs and events dealing with graduation have been included in their fine work. In addition to serving as class advisors, each does a tremendous "job" in the classroom. We as seniors will always remember their contribution not only to our class but also to our school.

'--3563.-2, Let's go back to a rather warm day in September, 1955, when the class of '58 held its first meeting. We were now big men on the campus, head of the whole Junior High. The - .sf hile first responsibility given to us was that of electing our class officers, we needed someone i . -' IH X . . . fifxifiif my :F spas., who could carry us through our Freshman year of dances, yearbook, and other class activities si. ai.. r...- lf. . . which required good leadership. We found just the persons in James Himes as President, Samuel Fleming, Vice President, Mary Ann Hartley, Secretary, and Thomas Davis, Treasurer. Qs iz' 5 Remember "Seniors" our first dance, "Punkin' Prom," the thrill of getting up our own deco- ,. .Qs . - rations and getting the refreshments ready, and then finally after all was over. finding a ' little money was accumulating in the class treasury, and most of all the knowledge that class spirit was beginning to mount. In the spring of our Freshman year, we gave another dance, f.lxi1'?' Mari ...K -I . , K . i ti. 512 ..Y,5- 3 . li '5- 31 1 L.. as or i r., fs: '3l?"?tfi!'T ' 5 "Spring Fever." Finally, to end our most happy year, we published our yearbook, "Freshman Frontiers," and held the long awaited dance, "The Freshman Frolic." With a little more confidence, we entered our Sophomore year. We were led again by James Himes, President, James Genevicz, Vice President, Maureen Faulkner, Secretary, and Micheal Ritterson, Treasurer. We were the little men of the "big" Senior High. Remembering how we suffered together through Biology dissection and public speaking courses, and what a great time we had giving two money making dances, "Knight Time" and not to be forgotten, "Sophomore Hop." All the time this class of '58 was growing in character and spirit. And then the big Junior year rolled around, with James Himes still up at the top, followed by David Ralph, Maureen Faulkner, Secretary, and Thomas Davis back again as Treasurer. What a year! First of all we gave a dance called "Yob Ksa Lrig," a great success, and also we gave "Roman Holiday" with the best decorations ever. On the nights of March l5, and 16, the curtain went up on "Girl Crazy," the Junior Class Play. This play will never be forgotten by the class of '58, mainly because of the fun we had in preparing it, and because so many participated in put- ting it on, especially Mr. Giamboy, our director. As the spring progressed it became evident that it was our turn to put up the candidates for the Student Council President, the ones chosen were James Himes, David Ralph and Michael Ritterson. James Himes, our class president for the past three years, won the election- "Lunar Landing," and, of course, the S James Himes, president, Maureen Faulkner, secretary, Micheal Ritterson, treasurer, James Genevicz, vice president. by an overwhelming maiority and took over the posi- tion as President of the Student Council. And now the Senior Year-it seemed so far away back in our Freshman meeting that September day in l955, but now we have grown so, mentally and physically in that time, that it is hard to believe all could be accomplished in the short span of four years. . . , Our officers for our Senior year were Frank Farlow, i W- President, Michael Ritterson, Vice President, Maureen Th , lk , Faulkner, Secretary, and Thomas Davis, Treasurer.

This quotation was on the front of the first bit of correspondence which I received from the American Field Service after learning that I had been selected to live in Greece for two months. These words meant little to me then, but now they are full of meaning and inspiration. I will never forget the wonderful experience of being part of two families in that Mediterranean nation which I have come to love so much. Multiply the bonds of friendship which were extended to me last summer in Greece by the thousands of similar ties that have been and are being formed by the A.F.S., and we realize that this program is more than iust a "good idea." A.F.S. is vital: "Youth can bridge the gap." JAMES HIMES teachers, who have made this year I always will remember. trumpet in the band. will continue my education. Tottie, MARGARETA HELLMANN Qweden w V, . i . Last year I graduated from Hogre All manna Laroverket for Flickor in Gothen burg. It is a public school for girls only I am here on a private basis. The Mer chants with whom I live are friends of rny parents. They gave me the most won derful gift I ever had by bringing me to America. Since I have been here I have seen proof of so much kindness, friend ship and hospitality from all I have met And I want to thank you all, students and America such a wonderful time which Here at Mt. Pleasant I am taking Eng Iish, P.O.D., American History, chemistry choral, physical education, and I play the In Sweden I live at Aroseniusgatan 3 Gothenburg. When I return to Sweden l D, YE PEOPLES GF THE EARTH Now half of my time in the U.S.A. is nearly gone. Next spring l'll go back to Germany, and I know I'lI miss America and all of you very much, Everybody is so kind and friendly, and my strongest im- pression of the American people is their hospitality. In the Wilson family I found a second home, which makes this year the most wonderful for me. Here at Mount I Pleasant I am studying English, P,O.D,, American history, French I, home eco- nomics, art, physical education, and driver's training. When l go back to Bremen, I'll finish my school education, and after that I will attend a school for languages, When I return home I'Il tell everybody about the wonderful experience of my year here, and l can encourage anyone because only if you see a country yourf self and live in it you can understand her people. Here at this place I want to thank you all for being as nice and kind as you were. I'll never forget you. I say "Auf Wiedersehen," and really hope I'll see you again. GABRIELE BREMER Germany I can say l've learned a lot during this past year. I have lived with people of this country. I have gone to school with them. I have learned how they act, what they think, how they have fun. I have learned to appreciate their good things, but also to criticize their bad ones. Briefly during this year I got to know America! Thanks to all of those who like my American family and Mount Pleasant High School contributed under the American Field Service to make this one year experience as fruitful to me as possible. I really think it was great! JEAN-PIERRE FRIEDERICH Luxembourg ooo if I think the most wonderful opportunity a teeneager can have is the chance to travel and to meet other people of the same age but of dif- ferent nationalities, Actually living in a country, such as I am, undef the American Field Service program, is the very best way to learn some- thing of the ideas and standards of the different nations, Only by understanding and knowledge can we ever hope to achieve world peace, though the American Field Service is still small, it is a beginning and is growing larger with each ensuing year. This year has proved to be one of the most memorable in my life, and I know that I shall never forget iust what it has 'meant to me to be working and playing side by side with so many of you. l sincerely hope that I can repay you all for your kindness to me by helping, even in some small way, to promote understanding in these troubled times.

KENNEDY STUDENT COUNCIL ACHIEVES GOALS J. Himes, president, M. Harley, secretary, F. Farlow, vice president, E. Loges, treasurer. The Mount Pleasant High School Student Coun- cil were again busy preserving those activities which have become a tremendous part of our high school life. Mr. Gennaria, Miss Roe, Jim Himes, Frank Farlow, Mary Ann Harley, and Tom Davis served as advisors and officers of the Council. At the very beginning of the year, our council members conducted the sale of Student Activity tickets. The profits from the tickets are given out to various school organizations to aid them financially. This year the council sponsored two golf weekends at Mr. Boucher's golf ranges. Many of us will long remember the Christmas food drive for the needy people. It too, was a big success. To highlight the beginning of the new year, the Student Council sponsored the "Snow Ball."

PLEASANT STUDENTS GAIN JOURNALISTIC EXPERIENC SANDY MERTZ, Editor OUR AIM IS TO BRING YOU, THE STUDENTS, THE VERY BEST! Many hours of hard work are put into a yearbook to acquire the finished product. Plans must be made, pictures must be taken, and deadlines rnust be met. Each yearbook is divided into sections and each section has an editor and a staff. It is the duty of this editor and staff to make all arrangements for its respective section. This year we were for- tunate to have had Mr. Frank Giarnboy as our advisor. Suzanne Mertz, our able and capable ed- itor, along with the staff wishes to thank Mr. Giamboy for his help, without which this yearbook would not have been possible. We of the 1958 yearbook hope that you will receive as much pleasure from reading this book as we received from bring- ing it to you.

This year un- der the leadership of Thelma Baldwin, Editor- in-Chiet, the newspaper has really been a great success. The whole advertising campaign was wid- ened and by changing the format, the news- paper has become a first class publication. Their policy, however, has remained the same . . . to publish a newspaper that will give an authentic and interesting summary of the activities of our school and environs. They pledge themselves to the best interests of our student body and faculty.

One of the most outstanding organizations in Mount Pleasant High School is the Athletic Association. The name itself almost explains the club. Its goals are all centered around furthering the athletic program in the school. The A. A. sponsors the cheerleaders who are indispensable in any high school. It also spon- sors the school store, a necessity for every pupil. Some of its other duties are to promote school spirit, to advocate participation in sports, and to take charge of the annual magazine drive. The money which is made on inter- scholastic games, and refreshments and pro- grams sold at these games, goes to the A. A. who in turn puts it aside to pay for forms and equipment. new uni- The A.

DESPITE HALF-DAY SESSION' JLLJ AMERWY The Future Teachers of America withstood the trials of half-day sessions and remained active this year. With Irene Jordan as presi- dent, and the competent guidance of Miss Ethel Roe, our futu-re educators benefited from a program of instruction and practical application in the fields of teaching. PHILOSOPHY CLUB Having finally made a complete break from the advanced math courses, the Phil- osophy Club, guided by Mr. William Boucher, held their meetings each Monday afternoon. The ultimate goal of this esteemed collection of thinkers is for every Mount Pleasant stu- dent to "produce" in the sole interest of wisdom. CIVIL DEFENSE To aid us in the event of an enemy attack, the Civil Defense Club was set up. This group organizes and supervises all air-raids and has helped to maintain safety around the school.

A fine Queen Mitzie Thompson and Escort Jim Himes. band added the finish- ing Touch to The dreamy atmosphere of a semi-formal dance. In years past iT has become a tradition to elect a Harvest Queen, and This year was no ex- ception. O u r 19 5 7 Queen was MiTzie Thompson. She was chosen by The football squad from a field of five candidates consist- ing of Judy Crabtree, Gerry Mace, Nancy , Nail, and Marilyn Streit- hof. Mr. Caia, our foot- ball coach, crowned The queen. Everyone who at- tended had a wonder- ful time, and the night was one that will be remembered by all. J . I could have danced all night. ANOTHER SENIOR SUCCESS JAILBREAK The beginning. Still at it! 5 L HERB .5 i i "The pause th 1 On the night of February 22, the senior class presented a sen- ior high stag dance, "Jailbreak." The Star- Iighters provided some unusual music, and the refreshments were tops. There was a trial be- tween the "Old Phi- Iosopher" and "Bert and Harry" the former was found guilty of the ac- cusations made against him. Everyone had a very enioyable evening. A At last . . . and what a success! SOCIAL HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR HIGH SCHOOL LIFE WERE OUR SOPHOMORE HOP AND OUR JUNIOR PROM JUNIOR PROM A revolving beacon shone dovvn on the class of 1958 as we enioyed the results of elaborate preparations for our Jun- ior Prom. This first formal took on a natural decor, complete with fishing net, lighthouse, and ocean vegetation. SOPHOMORE HOP As sophomores vve swayed dreamily through a balmy spring garden theme.

LOOKS FORWARD TO CHRISTMAS The Nurses Club decorated the annual Christmas tree. The choir sang the familiar carols at the Candlelight Service. The living senior Christmas tree. Tottie acknowledged Christmas gitt from seniors One most impressive memory of the T957 holiday season was the Christmas program. To refer to this event simply as annual, would seem to dismiss it as mere procedure, whereas, in reality, the Christmas assembly is long awaited and much enioyed by every student. The pro- gram this year included appropriate scrip- ture, numerous choral selections by the choir, and brief talks by our exchange stu- dents. Lorrie gave us a glimpse of Christ- mas in New Zealand, Tottie told of the Holiday in Sweden, and Jean Pierre in- formed us of the Yuletide in Luxembourg. Various student organizations surprised these visitors to our country with verbal greetings and packages. Who could tor- get the startled expressions and hasty thank-you speeches of such close friends? Terminating the assembly was a "Living Christmas Tree" presented by the senior girls. Traditional strains of "Joy to the World" rang through the halls as students eagerly departed for an exciting Christmas holiday. MUSIC At a football game where the band and cadets provide halt- time entertainment, at Christmas and in the spring when concerts are presented, music is very much in evidence at M.P. ln addition, there are the annual choir shows, and musical entre-acts at our plays. Yes, it can iustly be said that at eas the ir is filled Among the many talented musicians at Mount Pleasant is Joseph Pichette whose fine vo ce so often gave us the tingling sensation." Born in Spokane, Washington, Patrice Munsel made her Metro- politan debut at the age ot eighteen. She is a leading singer with that company todayg she has distinguished herself in concert, radio and television as well. With the fine musical training that we get at M.P. many ot our talented youth can rise to great heights in the medium ot music. PATRICE MUNSEL MR. STARR COLE MUSIC TO OUR EARS THE M.P. CHOIR This year's choir was one of the outstanding features of Mount Pleasant's extracurricular program. ln addition to the Christmas Candlelight Service, the Choir Show, and the Spring Concert, this group sang in several exchange pro- grams, in the County Choir Festival, and in countless services for the community and organizations such as the Lions Club. The choir again featured the'Singchronizers, composed of Mary Ann Harley, Marnie Wagner, and Thelma Baldwin. Tenor soloist, Joseph Pichette was also featured as was the new Trumpet Trio.

Marple and Janet Taylor, ac- "SNAFU," the Tenth Annual Choir Show, was held on January 30 and February i. Eight acts and seventy songs were combined to build the theme which revolved around American activities. By the time the second show had ended, our nervousness had finally disappeared. Aided by Mr. Cole, the entire cast of Snafu had a wonderful time! A NEW FEATURE OF OUR MUSIC PROGRAM. THE GIRLS CHOIR The Girls' Choir, instituted by Mr. Cole, is a new organization at Mount Pleasant this year. lt is an elective group composed ot girls in the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. Janet Taylor, elected by the girls, was the Girls' Choir chairman and was quite active in this capacity, and Loretta Rumball was the accompanist. Ott to a tine start, the Girls' Choir per- formed in the annual Christmas Candlelight Service and the Spring Con- cert. Under the expert leadership of Mr. Cole, the Girls' Choir has had a wonderful beginning and can be expected to be a permanent part of tradition at Mount Pleasant. S. Bebout, P. Morton, L. Lippert, K.

OUR CADETS ARE DELAWARE'S ONLY HIGH SCHOOL DRUM AND BLIGLE CORPS THE CADETS To add to the excitement of our football games, Mount Pleasant has the distinction of having our own drum and bugle corps entertain us at halftime. The Mount Pleasant High School Cadets, as the corps is called, is also capably led by Mr. Starr Cole and is the only organization of its kind in the state. Long hours of practice by the Cadet Corps result in a polished precision marching drill accompanied by the resonant music of the buglers. Head maiorette, Maureen Falukner, directs the Cadets while on the field. First row: B. MacKay, C. Hale, K. Deese, L. Porter, M. Meyer, C. Holder, J. Kelly, W. Pooley, K. Kately F. Farlow, J.

The annual edition ot the Mount Pleasant Marching Band is a malor factor in the wonderful display ot spirit at all ot our football games. Under the able leadership of the director, Mr. Cole, the Mount Pleasant Band has established a reputation of being one ot the best, it not the best marching band in the state. At the end of football season, the band members put aside their football music and begin to master the concert pieces which are played periodically throughout the year. Each spring the Mount Pleasant Concert Band climaxes its concert program with the Spring Concert, a culmination ot many months ot practice. Many ot our most enjoyable social functions at Mount Pleasant are made possible through the diligent work ot Mr. Cole and the members ot the bancl. ALWAYS C SUPERB PERFGRMERS X MAUREEN FAULKNER THE COLOR GUARD The drill work ot the color guard is an important part of the overall picture of both the Marching Band and the Cadet Corps and is certainly a contributing factor to the favorable recognition of our Mt. Pleasant marching unit. TH E MAJOR ETTES The precision drill ot the Cadets is supplemented by the expert showmanship provided by the maiorettes and the color guard. The maiorettes, although accompanying the Drum and Bugle Corps, perform a routine ot their own, characterized by their mastery of baton tvvirling. THAT THERE IS A GROWING INTEREST IN DRAMA is indicated by the large attend- ance at not only our school plays but also professional productions at The Playhouse. The senior and iunior plays bring out greater numbers each year.

WE MADE FOOTLIGHT HISTORY IN OUR JUNIOR PLAY, Carol Lawrence as Molly and Dave Ralph as Danny. "GIRL CRAZY" On March I5 and I6, l957, the class of T958 presented an outstanding production of "Girl Crazy." The story, set in the colorful atmosphere of the West, tells of a young, spoiled, "girl crazy" playboy who travels to his uncle's ranch, which he discovers to be in a "sorry" condition. With the aid of his pecuniary resources, the young man overcomes all difficulties, and the ranch is transformed into an up-to-date dude ranch for tourists. The cast was in excellent form throughout the three performances. There were several novel intermission features never before seen at Mount Pleasant. Between two of the acts, a girls' chorus line, in Western dress, ably led by Marilyn Myers, sang songs from the hit musical upon which the play was based. An election figured highly in the story so that two lively election parades were conducted by the two candidates for office. On Saturday night, an unforgettable climax to the hard work and en- ioyment derived from the play was provided by the class president, Jim Himes, who gave a pizza party. Everyone enioyed himself immensely.
