FURR Superintendent of Cabarrus County Schools 9 mn Just as the summer green reluctantly blends in to the brilliant shades of autumn, do we regretfully leave the leisurely summer countryside and return to the halls of learning. We eighth graders come for the last time as grammar students, we freshmen come for the first time to high school, we of the Student Council come for the first time, and we teachers come as certainly as the sea- sons. When the morning air begins to greet us with a crisp " hello 11 and the temperature drops with the setting sun, our thoughts turn to football. . . to cheering crowds, lively music, and pretty girls, to heavy coats, pop corn, and hot chocolate, to new uniforms, new records, and new championships !

Even though young, we feel that some good has been accomplished. One of our first acti- vities was the sponsorship of " Teacher Appreciation Week. " Polished apples and notes of appreciation were presented to each teacher. One day during the week the teachers were given a coffee break. Christmas was appropriately celebrated with several assemblies devoted to the singing of carols, old and new. At the last assembly our janitors and maids were remembered with large cartons and bags of groceries. Yes, the Student Council may be young and inexperienced, but it is active.

They finished with a 7-3 record, rolled up a good many points and all year played consistantly good football. Well supported by fans, students and band, the Tigers played football as a team, working as one unit. This type of play brought us success and the championship.

HOLLY 13 MOUNT PLEASANT 20 TROY 0 35 MT. PLEASANT — Coach Arden Ray ' s Tigers in 1960 proved at least two things: 1. A team with desire can do marvelous things; 2. And, practice makes perfect. The Mt. Pleasant Tigers let their offense bog down in the season opener this year against Norwood and the following week got in the way of the Re be Is of Monroe who socked them good, 62-13. From that date — September 2nd — however, the Tigers took a new lease on life and, under the watchful eye of coaches Ray and Morgan Walker put desire above all else. The tide changed. How it changed. Except for a surprisingly-close 13-0 defeat at the hands of the Concord Spiders, the Mounts ran ramsack over every remaining opponent on their schedule. Especially sweet was a 20-0 victory over the Hartsell Bulldogs who the previous year had taken the measure of the Tigers in a sudden-death Granite Belt Conference Playoff. In a repeat performance in a GBC Playoff, the Tigers this year put the finishing touches on a commendable season by rolling over Troy, 20-0. In regular season play, the Mounts had beaten Troy by 27-12. Here, briefly, is how the Mt. Pleasant Tigers recov- ered from those two opening losses to develop into a team that Coaches Ray and Walker commended, and that scored 223 points to the opponents ' 150 (62 of them in that dis- asterous Monroe game): NORWOOD 18, MP 6 Mt. Pleasant led the game in every statistic, but the final score, leading in rushing, 151 to 72 yards; passing, 102 to 30 yards. The Tigers moved the ball well but the drives bogged down inside Norwood territory. Buddy McDonald, Stancil Baucom and Lockhardt were big MP gainers. MONROE 62, MP 13 Monroe jumped into an early 13-0 lead in three plays and coasted to the win although the Mounts ' defense did have some good stands and McDonald, Ronnie Hahn sparked a good passing offense. MP 27, TROY 12 As Coach Ray said, " We ' ve found the missing link, " and riding the td-passing of Hahn and bulldozing of Lockhardt, the Tigers survived a tight first half. Eddie Fisher also got in on the td-tossing. MP 44, ANSON COUNTY 0 Running a full head of steam, the Mounts routed Anson County which had filled an open date, picking 280 yards rushing and another 82 yards through the air. Mount stars were numerous. MP 27, CHARLOTTE 13 The Tigers again got off to a slow start but, with the defense k e e p i n g Charlotte Catholic runners quiet, the Mounts ground out 21 first downs with 285 yards rushing and another 52 over land. MP 20, HARTSELL 0 The Tigs were stingy as they gave up the ball to Hartsell a few times and then deep in Hartsell territory. While Hartsell was held to only 39 yards, the Mounts, led by Fisher and Baucom picked up a total of 312 yards on the ground and through the air. CONCORD 13, MP 0 Concord spiders scored the first and last time they had the ball to turn back the Mounts ' desire to win the first game between the two teams. Statistics were not so close but Concord drives were stopped on the MP two and four. The Tigs had one threat, driving to the Spids ' 39. MP 33, BADIN 7 After a scoreless first quarter, Hahn sneaked from the one to put the Mounts in motion. He was joined in the scoring circle by Fisher, Bobby Smith, Baucom. An inter- ception led to Badin ' s lone score. MP 39, LOWELL 12 Holding a slim 12-6 halftime lead, the Tigs roared back in the second half with six scores. Baucom scored three times and Hahn completed 7 of 13 passes for 79 yards. MP 19, MT. HOLLY 13 The Tigers closed out the season on a winning note, winning 19-13 and leading in the statistics. Lockhardt, Baucom, McDonald and Hahn led the classy MP attack. MP 20, TROY 0 Mt. Pleasant sewed up the GBC championship, run- ning roughshod over the Troy team which had finished the year with identical 3-1 records. After a scoreless first period, the Tigs scored on a handoff by McDonald (subbing for injured Hahn) to Fisher. Baucom added the PAT. The Mounts sewed it up with a pair of tds in the fourth period, one on McDonald ' s 5-yard pass to Tom Beatty and the second on the same McDonald ' s 18-yard aerial to Baucom. 36 Cheerleaders in action.

Glee Club This year the G 1 e e Club has been one of the key musical organi- zations on campus. Working with limited rehearsal time, they per- formed two excellent programs combined with the band; one for Thanksgiving, and another for Christmas. Other performances during the year made this an out- standing year vocally. Forming the nucleus for the Glee Club is the mixed chorus. This group made several appearances for special occasions, including the Concord Rotary Club dinner. The success for the year is attributedto studentpar- ticipation and co-operation which accounted for the growth in size from 16 to over 100. 55 First row, left to right: Aaron Parker, Jerry Walter, Boyce Fink, Fred Krimminger, Howard Boger, Wayne Bamhardt, Troy Barnhardt, Ronnie B.

An order of one hundred-fifty dollars for pecan trees was secured from Bass Pecan Company. A survey of small grain seeds used for sowing in the community was made by the agriculture students for Mr. William W. Allen, seed marketing specialist of the N. C. Department of Agriculture. This was a very extensive survey. The annual F. F. A. exhibit at the Cabarrus Fair stressed the importance of the proper use of insecticides and pesticides by the public. In December the Arc Welding School was attended by an average of thirty-four students per night at a total cost of one hundred-nine dollars. This Welding School was under the Forney Weld- ing Service. For shop supplies of lumber the F. F. A. Chapter has secured two hundred and seventy-eight dollars worth of pine and oak lumber. Sixty pounds of Baittox from Sanitation Products Company is being sold by the local F.F.A. Chapter. An extensive sales program of the " Farm Journal " and " Wild Life " Magazines has been made. Two by two slides are being made of outstanding club activities; members are looking forward to the various F. F. A. contests during the year. Ronnie B.

Our club meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. We have 37 active members. Our weekly meetings consist of everyone ' s taking part in dancing. Among other things we have learned the Cha-Cha. In October, the Social Club sponsored the Homecoming Dance in the school cafe- teria. The dance, which was a great success, was a new highlight of the season for our school, but it will most likely become a tradition, since everyone who attended seemed to share a delightful evening. 57 Science Club The Science Club is a young club whose goal is to promote a schoolwide interest in science. The club ' s major project was the Spring Science Fair, which was open to the public. The club also sponsored several high school assemblies throughout the year. For the first time, the club built and sponsored a Christmas float; fate did not smile on it, however!

Library Club For the first time, the Mount Pleasant High School Library Club is affiliated with the North Carolina High School Library Association. In September, we organized with seventeen members and Mrs. M. T. Moye, our high school libra- rian, sponsor. We meet every 1st and 3rd Thursdays and discuss topics related to the school library, using THE PUPIL ASSISTANT IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY, by Mary Peacock Douglas as a guide. Each member works one period a day in the library under the super- vision of Mrs. Moye. The pupils are graded on the work and receive 1 2 credit for the year ' s work. Advisor: Mrs. Moses T. Moye.

Tiger Print Staff This year the " Tiger Print " Staff has compiled and published five editions of the school newspaper, " The Tiger Print. " Each edition was a sell-out and everyone seemed to be pleased with the paper. We ex- changed our newspaper with other schools; from this, we sometimes got ideas that we used in our paper. The staff worked hard this year and we are very proud of the pro- gress we made. First row, left to right: Rosa Kluttz, Maxine Lefler, Shirley Burris, Judith Safrit, Myron Blackwelder.

The program is pre- sented, the business is conducted, and the social hour is enjoyed by all. During December, we, along with Student Government, sponsored the sale of chocolate. The profit from this was distributed to the variou ' s clubs, according to their needs. In February, we held our tap- ping ceremony. At this time we invited qualified students to join our club. In April, the State Beta Club Convention was held in Asheville, N. C. Those students who attended had a most enjoyable time. w ■ 1 % ti jm JL Seated, left to right: Rachel Vanderburg, Kay Blackwelder, Darla Crayton, Susan Nance, Verna Sigmon.

During the football season the " Marching Tigers Band " worked hard to produce exciting shows for program and half time. The band made three trips during the football season, including Hartsell, Badin home- coming, and the Championship game. The band closed the football season with its first annual football banquet. Awards were presented to Leonard Moose, Brenda Shinn, Jack Stegall, Larry Rimer, and Rachel Bost for being " Outstanding Bands- men- 1960. " 62 High School Band Tigers The second half of the year was dedicated to concert season. Several programs were presented, the most outstanding being the Christmas program, where the auditorium had standing room only. An exchange concert with Albemarle was another highlight of the concert season. 63 LARRY RIMER Drum Major Lettergirls Majorettes And Acrobats First row, left to right: Carla Allman, Terry Culp, Jenna Smith.

Yes, it ' s spring. " In the spring a young man ' s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love " and baseball. . . spontaneous baseball games can be seen in almost every vacant field. From these training grounds come the young athletes who man the baseball team. Track is another spring favorite. The real favorite of spring, though, is the end of school and, for the seniors, graduation. 70 Class Mascots JOY KLUTTZ AND DOUGLAS HINSON Class Colors BLACK AND WHITE Class Prayer Eternal God, we thank Thee for the ability which Thou has seen fit to bestow upon us. So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Grant unto us clean minds so that we may increase our knowledge by clear and wholesome thinking.

Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable unto Thee, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

HAHN STANCIL BAUCOM COACH BILL HUTCHINSON DAVID PETREA f DAVID LOCKHARDT Returning Lettermen 97 Our School (.lass History We numbered 84 when we embarked on the " Year of Beginnings " that balmy August day of 1957. Though we may have been " green " freshmen, we were eager to learn and so very excited about being in high school at last. We elected Janet Fisher our first high school president. Our other officers were: Kenneth Thompson, vice president; Kay Blackwelder, secretary; and Eddie Fisher, treasurer. Our advisors were Mr. Perry LeFeaver, Mr. Arden Ray, and Miss Ruth James. Pat Morgan was " Miss Freshman. " Our freshman marshals were Myron Blackwelder, Mary Ruth Moore, Ann Cline, and Rachel Vanderburg. We were rather proud of ourselves that last day of school as we traveled to Frye ' s Lake for our class party. We had completed one year of high school and were ready for the bigger and better things to come. . . especially summer vaca- tion ! We dwindled to 76 our sophomore year, but we were ready, willing and waiting to live the " Year of Scholastic Adventure " that lay ahead. It was a strenuous year, to be sure, but we faced even the mighty Caesar with valor. With the curiosity of the proverbial cat and the stomach of a first-run sailor, we tackled those frogs, worms, and notes for better or for worse and came out a little harried, but almost untarnished. All was not bad, though, for we were no longer meager freshmen! We elected Rachel Vanderburg president and Darla Crayton vice president. Our other officers were: Rachel Bost, secretary; John Litaker, treasurer; and Myron Blackwelder, reporter. Our advisors were Mrs. H. S. Leafe, Mrs. Pat Swain, and Mrs. Ira Jane Ray. Class marshals were Ruth Moore, Myron Blackwelder, Rachel Vanderburg, and Ann Cline. We played a repeat performance of the end of school party at Frye ' s Lake, and we were equally as happy to see the summer vacation become a reality. Our 72- man corporation functioned well our junior " Year of Big Business. " We ordered rings, sold magazines, pre- sented the Junior- Senior Banquet, and made an unforgettable trip to Washington, D. C. Our top magazine salesmen were Rachel Vanderburg, Glenn Kluttz, Larry Rimer, and Susan Nance. Our officers were : Norris Plott, president; Buddy McDonald, vice president; Linda Isenhour, secretary; Stancil Baucom, treasurer; and Janet Fisher, reporter. Our advisors were Mrs. Nancy Bost, Mr. Frank Brown, and Miss Rosa James. Miss Rosa James, Mrs. Betty Cauble, Mr. Lester McCarn, and Mr. Morgan Walker chaperoned our trip to Washington. Approximately 70 juniors and seniors made the trip. Although we had all seen pictures of our capitol, read about it, and heard about it from other people, we found that first-hand knowledge surpasses all other and that our visit to the land of politics and government would stand out in our memories as a very exciting, educational, and rewarding experience for a long time to come. It ' s almost impossible to believe that this is our last year. . . our " Year of Big Decisions. " We’ve all dreamed of it, planned for it, and worked toward it, but now that it is a reality, we cannot believe it has come and almost gone! We ' ve been so excitingly busy taking senior pictures, ordering invitations and calling cards, selecting and measuring for our caps and gowns, working on the annual, electing. . . selecting. . . honoring. . . attending. . . living. . . and, oh yes, enjoying it all so very much. . . We elected Glenn Kluttz president and John Litaker vice president. We elected Linda Faggart secretary, Kenneth Thompson treasurer, and Judy Killian reporter. Our advisors were Miss Rosa James and Mrs. Madge Pless. Yes, the year has almost come to a close. Soon we will walk down that memory-filled hall for the last time as students at Mt. Pleasant High School. With stately tassels swaying to the rhythmic movement of 69 excited seniors, with the strains of " Pomp and Circumstance " ringing above the crowd, with flowery speeches, with smiles, with tears, with bulging expectations, we ' ll say good-bye to all that is Mt. Pleasant High and walk into Tomorrow — young men and women with promise for the future.
