THE M. P. H. S. TATTLER ll
ANCIENT HISTORY OF CLASS OF '18.
When we as mere infants entered upon the vista of our,
High School career, we looked upward to the height of our
fond ambition--to be a Senior. Now that we have attained
that pinnacle of fame, we look back with envy upon those
care-free days, for we stand on the shore of life's bewild-
ering whirlpool. The first few days were distractingly con-
fusing and several adventurous souls strayed from our pro-
tecting arms. However, we had confidence in our numbers
and We soon regained our equilibrirm. Being an enterpris-
ing class,.in a few weeks we gained courage enough to hold
our first class meeting. With a composure which became
habitual with us, we planned our first class picnic. This
was the first social function of any of the classes for the
Bravely, one bright Saturday morning, we departed for
Barton's Ford, laden with packages. As we diplomatically
refrained from showing partiality almost the entire faculty
accompanied us. We spent the whole day there, having the
time of our young lives. Several enchanting romances were
well launched on this notable occasion so it was not without
a lasting result. A
After this we struggled along bravely with X, y's and z's,
Xerxes and Zenophones, and manv entertaining 'UD and
entrancing wonders which our teachers unfolded to us.
b When Hallowe'en approached with its fascinating possi-
bilities we planned for a thrilling party at Ruth Peterson's.
Then next came the horrors of our first semester examina-
tions. We learned to know that queer, sinking feeling, and
our hearts beat 80 per.
After this everything went along smoothly until the end
of the year when we blossomed forth as brilliant Sopho-
A very sad occurrence during our Freshman year was
the death of two of our most promising and loved class-
mates, Inez Jordan and Anna Powell.
We advanced confidently in our Sophomore year. We
were now on solid foundation and could "lord it over" the
Freshies with gusto. Importantly. we proceeded to Oak-
land for a big picnic to show the other classes how to do it.
We were always quite socially inclined Con the sidei and
we soon enjoyed another spree at the home of Edna Forbes.
This was the night when we had our notorious flashlight
picture taken, but we really weren't so scared as we looked.

12 'THE M. P. H. s. TATTLER
As Jolly Juniors, life was one beautiful song. We had
learned that wise little saying: "Do not worry over your
lessons and all will come out all right." We had none of
the responsibilities to oppress our gay spirits. .
Immediately we proceeded to organize our class. We
chose Leonard Stromberg, President, Lawrence Hagie, Vice
Presidentg Frances Crane, Secretary-Treasurer. Our class
colos became Old Rose and Silver and our motto, "P. E. P."
or "Persistent Effort Pays." This caused the big color iight
with the seniors in which, of course, both classes claim to
have been victorious. However, the old rose and silver were
still proudly Haunting themselves about town the following
In the Declamatory contest our class was largely repre-
sented. Lawrence Hagie won first with Ruth Hobbs a close
second. As the Dramatic section for the sub-district con-
test was filled, Ruth was sent in place of Lawrence. Ruth
came back with flying colors and was sent to Fairfield to
the district contest, where, though she did not win, she did
credit to us.
The only thing that dampened our gay spirit was the
death -of one of our most brilliant classmates, Irvin Leach.
No one in High School was better liked than he and he was
greatly missed from our jolly crowd. . i
The operetta, "Windmills of Holland," put on by Miss
Barger, was a grand success. The leading parts were taken
by members of our class.
When the basket ball boys pulled down the State Cham-
pionship the star player, "Pinkey" Greene, was proudly
pointed out as belonging to the Class of '18, while Strommy
and Miles, the able subs, were also from our class.
However, the crowning event and most brilliant triumph
of this year was the J unior-Senior banquet. Everything was
beautifully decorated and the toast program was excellent.
On account of the careful plans, all went 0E as smoothly
' Our Senior year has seemed even more joyful and achiev-
ing, for added to our good times are responsibilities which
made us seem the big "Ps" in the school.
i In both the boys' and the girls' literary societies our
class was well represented, most of the -officers being of
THE M. T II. S. TATTLER 13
The color ght this ycar was one of the most friendly but
nevertheless ?energetic there has ever been. Proudly we ac-
cepted our victory as inevitable and the Old Rose and Silver
again floated in front of the High School and other promi-
nent places to taunt the Juniors. .
In the fall, we enjoyed three jolly parties-one at Edna
Michener's, one at Catherine Schliep's and one at Justine
This was the first year for Y. W. C. A. work in the High
School. It was started by Miss Woodruff and was carried
by the Seniors largely, as they hold all the positions ex-
cepting one on the Cabinet. The Hiking Club was also
started and the result very profitable.
The basket ball boys again won great renown by captur-
ing the State Championship for the second time. Three of
the regular men and all of the subs were '18 men, and
"Pinkey" and "Strommy" were placed on the All-State
a.In the Declamatory Contest twelve of the contestants
were Seniors, and Ruth Hobbs who took first place and
represented our school at Bloomfield has been for two con-
secutive years so honored, thus bringing to our class a dis-
tinction well Worth While.
When the Second Liberty Loan came along we did all
we could to help. We purchased a One Hundred Fifty Dollar
Bond, payable to the High School twenty-five years from
now. Also much relief work was done in connection with
the Y. W. C. A. and the Patriotic League.
And now our graduation day is drawing near, and the
largest and finest class which has ever been in this school
will go out .from the old Mt. Pleasant High School.

P1917-1918 Basket Ball.. '
For two years in succession Mt. Pleasant High School has
walked off with the Iowa State Championship, showing our
brilliant-playing quintette second to none in the state. The
team last two of last year's players, "Beans" Thomas and
"Ike" Harshbarger but "Skimmer" Miller and Miles Rukga-
ber quite madeup the loss. The boys were handicapped by
the loss of coaches Karlstrom and Melcher and were for a
time without a coach. Near the close of the season, Mr.
Wormhondt of Ottumwa was secured and a good deal of the
success was due to his capable coaching. The past season
will be long remembered in Mt. Pleasant and especially by
those who witnessedsome of the thrilling games, such as
the one with Iowa City. ' '
"Pinkie" Green, captain, is the fastest forwardin the
state. He is our star. player and was elected all-state cap-
tain. His fast dribbling and accurate basket shooting
brought Mt. Pleasant many points. His graceful figure
darting swiftly for the goal never failed to thrill the crowd.
"Pink" is the kind of Vfellowqwho can put snap and pep into
his men and do consistent team work as well as brilliant ine
dividual playing. His future will be watched with interest
by all basket ball enthusiasts. . ' ' I .
Don Harshbarger, forward, did some splendid work and
the guard who followed him around knew he had been in the
game when Dod was through with him. His ability for long
shots is very unusual. Don.has played on the team for three
seasons and still has one season to continue his brilliant
playing. I p '
At guard we find Leonard Stromberg, the man with a
smile that wo-n't come off. "Strommy" is noted for his close
guarding, his speed on the floor and his unfailing good
nature. He s always on Web and rea-dy to whirl the
ball back Ae of our forwi s when it came down to his
end of the fioor. The fact. that he made the state team
proves his worth. ' , .
"Skimmer" Miller, center, broke into the limelight this
year and proved himself "there with the goods." Skimmer's
main feat was to get his man's goat and then get him.
Skimmer has anotheryear to fight for Mt. Pleasant High
School and great things are expected of him. S
16 ' 'rim M. P. H. s. 'rxrrnmn
Miles Rukgaber, guard, is a man whose endurance and
team work were remarkable. Few and far between were
the baskets his opponent got from Miles. He is a clean,
hard player and played a steady, consistent game.
Buck, Joy, Yocum and Thomas were the efficient subs
who could be depended upon to go into the game at any
time and play an excellent game. Their loyal and con-
sistent support of the first team had much to do with this
This year's team consists with two exceptions of Seniors
but there is plenty of good material left in Mt. Pleasant
High School and We may look forward to another cham-

The literary societies were organized in our Sophomore
year. The first year there was only one society but it was
so large that the second year two were formed-the Arcadia
for boys and the Eutopian for girls. The girls have shown
a great deal of interest in their society and have received
much help and experience in public speaking from the pro-
grams. The society has one hundred and five members. A
meeting is held once every two weeks and once a semester
an open house meeting is held when everyone may come.

The boys' literary society although not as large as the
Eutopian, has had plenty of "pep" and has given some very
interesting programs. They meet twice a month and have
open meeting once a semester just as the Eutopian Society.
For the last two years interest in 'the declamatory work
has greatly increased. Each year a member of the school
is sent to compete in the suqidistrict contest and if he wins
in this, tothe district and t en to the state contest.
So many of our students have tried out for this that for
the past two years two elimination contests and one final
contest have been nrcessary to choose the one to represent
us in the sub-district, contest.
Last year Lawrence Hagie received first place in the
Dramatic class but that department had the required num-
ber of contestants so Ruth Hobbs who received first place
20 THE M. P. II. S. TATTLER
in the Humorous class was sent. She won in the sub-district
but did not receive first place in the district contest. How-
ever she had a splendid piece and gave it well, so we were
proud of her just the same. Ruth is a good speaker and has
a pleasing manner so she always makes a "hit" This year
Ruth again was chosen to represent the school at the sub-
district contest at Bloomfield.
GLEE CLUB. r
t Our Freshman year Miss Roberts was the Director of
the Glee Club and under her supervision the school had a
splendid organization. For the past three years Miss Celine
Barger has had charge of the Glee Club and has been very
successful in training the girls. She is a lady of exceptional
ability and the school has been very fortunate in having her
a member of the faculty. Miss Barger has put a great deal
of enthusiasm into her work and has made it one of the
most popular organizations in the school.
Last year the school had a Boys' Glee Club which was
also splendid. The two glee clubs gave an operetta, "The
Windmills of Holland," which was a great success. Miss
Barger gave a great deal of time and strength to this and
too much credit cannot be given her.
The principal parts were taken by members of our class
and we were justly proud of them.
The Glee Club is an important and instructive part of our
High School and we hope it will continue to be a popular
and well organized department.

The girls of our High Schbol have long felt the need of
some organization in which they could get together and
become better friends, but not until this year has such an
organization been formed. They have shown great interest
in the meetings and because of their enthusiasm we are
sure the Y. W. C. A. is going to be a success. They hold
their meetings every two Weeks and usually some town per-
son is asked to speak. They have had some splendid talks
this year. '
'rum M. P. H. s. TATTLER 21
A "Hiking" Club has been formed in connection with the
Y. W. C. A. The girls who walk seventy-five miles will re-
ceive letters for their sweaters. They have shown much in-
terest in this. The girls have also adopted a French war
orphan and in this way are trying to do their "bit" for the
war. We are sure the Y. W. C. A. is a permanent organi-
zation for our High School.
THE JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET, 191-7.
It has become a custom for the junior class of Mt. Pleas-
ant High School to give a banquet for the Seniors. There-
fore on Friday evening, May 25th, the two classes and the
High School faculty gathered at the Y. M. C. A. to enjoy
the banquet which had been prepared by the Juniors.
Although there had been much contention between the
two classes over colors and party intrusions, all were willing
to forget their past injuries and join in having a pleasant
evening. This banquet really marked a climax in the events
of the year, for here the two classes met on equal ground
and a feeling of peace and friendship was established be-
tween them. V
The large banquet room of the "Y" was fittingly deco-
rated in the Senior colors, pink and green. Ferns, foliage
and sweet peas adorned the tables. A huge rainbow hung
on the north wall, the significance of which was in keeping
with the toast program.
At eight o'clock all were seated. One feature which tended
to relieve the formality of the occasion was the singing of
the High' School song. .
"For it's always fair weather,
When school fellows get together."
Between courses the classes sang songs to each other.
The menu was as follows:
Veal with Mushrooms
New Potatoes Peas on Rosettes
Orange Ice Rose Radishes

THE JUNIOR-SENIOR LUNCHEON, 1918.
Instead of the usual J unior-Senior banquet, this year the
class of '19 has wisely decided to give a six o'clock luncheon
which will take the form of the usual banquet as to center-
tainment and toast program, but at the same time be more
in keeping with the war times. -
We do not know what the special features are. That is a
deep, dark secret. Because of the mysterious looking pack-
ages that are being taken to and from the Domestic Science
rooms by the Juniors and because of the whispering tha-t
always ceases whenever a Senior approaches. We look for-
ward to something unusual for the evening's entertainment.
The Juniors are noted for doing things right, so we know
this feature of their high school activities will in every way
measure up to their former high standards.
The luncheon will be held May 10th, at the "Y," The
toast program will be as follows:

THE M. I'. II. S. TATTLER 23
One of the great events of our Senior Year was the
Senior Stunt, which was held at the High School building
April 13th. Only one week was given us in which to work
out our ideas for the affair. Each one did his share of the
work. Not one tried to shirk and because of the co-opera-
tion of the faculty and class, everything went off like clock
The entire school building had been transformed into a
place of amusement, the assembly being used for the main
stunt. The main stunt was divided into three parts: first,
an operettag second, a minstrel showy and last, a tableau.
The main fioor down stairs gave the appearance of the
midway at a county fair. Various side shows had been
planned and a jazz band patrolled the street to keep order.
Perhaps the room that attracted the most attention was
the Domestic Science room, which was converted into a
mess tent where sandwiches and "Ades" were sold.
The other sideshows onthe midway were: The Hawaiian.
Girls, The Doll Shop, Polly's Predicament, Franco the Ma-
gician, Our Own Movies and Shoot the Kaiser.

A WORD OF APPRECIATION TO OUR BUSINESS MEN.
The business men of Mt. Pleasant are the loyal support-
ers of the High School. They have been behind us with
their financial assistance and always they stand ready to
encourage and help us in numerous ways.
Four years ago they financed our football team, buying
our suits and giving us all the aid we desired. Last year they
subscribed money to send our basketball team to the District
Tournament and, when the team took first place over all
Southeastern Iowa basketball teams, they again' helped us
and sent our team to the State Tournament.
This year, when we were in danger of ruin due to the fact
our athletic coach was called to the colors, they brought an
experienced coach from Ottumwa to put our team in shape.
When, through his assistance, we were again able to take
the Southeastern Iowa championship, they sent our team to
Iowa City to compete with the strongest schools in the state
for the honor which so seldom falls to a school of this size.
By reason of hard fighting and good team work and the
support of the whole town, our team again brought home
the honor of being the best basketball team in the state of
We, the class of 1918 of Mt. Pleasant High School, in be-
half of the High School, wish to express our appreciation of
what the business men have done for us.
