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

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
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
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.
LEST WE FCDRGET - A GREAT LADY
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
Yes, Mrs. Margaret P. Nelson, we are prepared, and for this we ap-
preciate you. gggg 4

WE POINT WITH PRIDE TO MT PLEASANT'S
From Them we learned The
ideals of efficienT organizaTion.
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,
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."
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.

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
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.

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-

only for great men of letters but also tor great men ot all fields.
That many ot us will distinguish ourselves in our chosen careers
is undoubtedly the hope ot all who shared in our destiny.
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
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.
Books are her business as Dave Music is his business Bob Goodman Mitzi Thompson gets a pass signed

A HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '58 . . . TIME MARCHES O
J . f . . 1
is . A .. ..
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 . . .
who could carry us through our Freshman year of dances, yearbook, and other class activities
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.
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,

as or i
"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

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.

W LK TOGETHER, T LK TOGETHEI
"Walk together, talk together, O, ye peoples
of the earth: then and only then shall ye have
peace." 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."

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!
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-

CREIGHTON LED JUNIOR CLASS THROUGH BIG YEAR
The Class of l959, led by John
Creighton, President, J a rn e s
Hague, Vice President, Roberta
Downs, Secretary, and Alden
Holsinger, Treasurer, has had an
active year. In early October the
Junior Party, an informal gather-
ing for the class members, was
held in the Old Gym. Their first
money-rnaking project was a
dance held on December TA.
Our successors sponsored
another dance on February 8 and
produced the Junior Play on
March 2l and 22. As an ending
to a wonderful year, the Junior
Prom was held in the River Road
Gym on May 24. The faculty
advisors for this year were Miss
Roe and Mr. Pollari.

AN INTEGRAL PART OF SCHOOL LIFE AT M.P. IS THE
Almost every kind of activity
can be found at M.P. An organiza-

needs. Even in the trying days of
half sessions, the extracurricular
activities continued. Here we had
our opportunity to become the

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
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." The profits from this dance were
donated toward the American Field Service Fund.
Besides organizing a program for the P.T.A.
meeting, the Council also organized part of the
Christmas Assembly. These were only a small por-
tion of the many activities sponsored by our
council members all who were working to-
gether for the betterment of Mount Pleasant

MT. 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.

THE REWARD FOR CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP, SERVICE,
SCHOLARSHIP . . . THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Character, leadership, service and scholastic ability are the passwords tor
the National Honor Society. President Michael Ritterson led the outstanding
students who are members of this group. He was assisted by Andrew Price,
Vice President, Mary Jo Hall, Secretary, and Priscilla Wightman, Treasurer.
Under the guidance of Mr. James Genneria, this group took a trip in the
spring. It also sponsored a dance called the "Scotch Hop" on Saturday, March
8, 1958. The National Honor Society stands for the recognized ability and
scholarship qualities which many ot our Mount Pleasant students have.

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.
The A. A. was under the able leadership of

application in the fields of teaching.
Having finally made a complete break

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

for the community and organizations such as the Lions Club.

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.

HIGH SCHOOL DRUM AND BLIGLE CORPS
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.

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.
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
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. Also, participation in the

WE MADE FOOTLIGHT HISTORY IN OUR JUNIOR PLAY,
Carol Lawrence as Molly and Dave Ralph as Danny.
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
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.

The '58 Green Knights completed a very satisfactory basketball season by win-
ning thirteen games, they were defeated in only six games. The team, backed
by superb spirit, edged out several strong opponents as Howard, Conrad, and
Wilmington High. Although the net-men didn't Win all the close ones, they pro-
vided many exciting thrills for the fans.
Four seniors, Jim Thompson, Frank Farlovv, Jim Himes, and Dick Murphy, cap-
tain, will be leaving a high standard to be filled by those who take their places
next year. The Knights will be hoping for even a better season to come with the
strong and upcoming underclassmen.
