S. un- der the capable guidance ot Mr. Hargis. No per- plexity ot' any student was too trivial for him to solve. The students have a high respect tor Mr. Hargis, and through his ettorts M. P. T. H. S. has become an institution of higher learning, recog- nized by large schools and other organizations. Mr. Harqis has also been active in many things outside of school work. He is allways willing to do his part to make any program a success by his in- troductory remarks. His large supply of anecdotes is welcome at any gathering especially in the study hall.

We elected as our otticers. Joseph McCul- ibugh, leader, Alice Yauch, assistant leader, Pauline Allison, log- lceeper, and John Martin, treasurer. From the supervisors ot the company, Miss Volle and Mr. Stivers, came instructions tor the voyage. In our hiding, we enioyed parties and picnics. As tourists we entered our ma'estic vessel tor its second voyage. Walter Humble served as uide, Helena Hahn as assistant guide and Wallace McGee as log-ieeper and treasurer. The overseers ot our tour were Miss Wiswell and Mr. Lucas, who also helped us with our problems. We enioyed our stowaway parties and pic- nics so well that we had a great many more as tourists. As second-class passengers we entered for our third voyage on the Sea ot Knowledge. Alice Yauch was our rear admiral, Beryl Wachter was her assistant, Waneta Febus was log-keeper, and Dalen Shellhammer was treasurer. We presented our play. "Tho Ghost Parade," in the main ball-room. Our ban uet was held in the main ball-room ot a passing ship, the S. S. cl.eland from the Springfield port. Mr. Lucas and Miss Goetz advised us on this voy- age. As tirst-class passengers, we have entered her maiesty, The Hill- top. on our last voyage from our alma mater. Memoirs ot our tirst trip brought to our minds that' this last should be our best. Three passengers from another ship entered ours for this last cruise. Alice Yauch was our admiral, Beryl Wachter, vice-admiral, and Mari- lyn Buckles, log-lreeper and treasurer. Miss Reavy and Mr. Lucas served as supervisors. The tirst-class passen ers entertained the second-class passengers at a dance held on geek. We have also purchased a radio with a phonograph attachment to be used in the ballroom. Our class play was a huge success. We are now having our last grand times together. The ship has come into port. but our great- est experience ies in the future. As we sail the Sea of Ambition, may we land in the harbor ot Success. This page sponsored by DR. E. H. COX Mount Pulaski .tfuukm T i Lew Q 43 C . 'T ,. 'Z 1 ai Q1 ls it possible? Yes, Mount Pulaski, lllinois, has been selected tor the world premier ot that super-super cinema masterpiece, "Gone ls the Wind." As everyone knows, this record-breaking best seller was written by the winner ot the Nobel Prize tor eight years, Beryl Wachter, using the pen name of Marg-aret Satchello. Miss Wach- ter wrote "Gone ls the Wind" in l956, and it was immediately sold to the McCullough'Sams-Bertoni movie company and has been in roduction these tour years. Father Time will not mind, however, because l960 is more than happy to welcome this splendid achieve- ment. Come, it will soon be curtain time, and we want to meet some ot the celebrities as they come to the gala premier. As our taxi pulls up in front ot the theatre, the lights on the mar- quee begin their ay twinkling. Our tickets are ready and we en- ter the theatre. gNNe are given a program printed by a Mr. R. Aughenbaugh. Now where have we heard that name before? At- ter usher W. McKinley takes us to our seats, we have a few mo- ments to look about us before the picture begins. Wilna Emery's Emerywheels strike up a snappy tune with their star trumpet player, Charles Hanslow-and, we have a stage review star- ring the nationally known tap dancer, Alice Stockton. If only the stars ot the picture would come! Whom have we here? Ah, it's another ot the lovely ladies ot the screen, Miss Marilyn Buckles. She seems quite happy to be back in her home town. Following close behind her, we see the lady whose word is law in the field ot etiquette, personality, and character hints-the modern Emily Post, Miss Lois Watson. Ot course, the radio stars are here also. There is that tamous sing- ing Eair, Alice Yauch and June Ridgeway. Helena Hahn, the star of t e "Daytime Love Series," is a beauty operator in spare mo' ments. And, there, too, is that genial quiz-master, Willis Laatsch. How stupid of mel l torgot our three wise men who are now an- swerin the questions on 'Information Please"-John Martin, Rob- ert Gu so, and Wallace McGee. Um, that proves that trends can- 'i change. Here is the great banker, Leonard Obery, closely followed by his secretary, Miss Marilyn Voyles. And there is the most successful lawyer ot the day, Kenton Opperman. Behind him comes that ev- er-busy program director tor NBC, J. Dalen Shellhammer. His hob' by is collecting movie magazines ot which he has an entire library. Now entering is his librarian, Sylvia Allsopp. We iust caught a glimpse ot the season's most popular debutante, Irma Ryan. How well she keeps her youth! Also entering is that globe-trotter ot the class ot '40, Doris Ge er. As you know, she made both her trips around the world on the S. S. Hilltop. And in row I3 lhe's super- stitiousl, is none other than the pilot, Earl Riggs, who won his tame by an endurance tlight over Hawaii. Even he is surprised he stayed up so long. Everyone seems breathless with excitement. Perhaps it's because the stars ot the picture have been kept a secret, and now their names are to be revealed. There have been many rumors as to their identit , but as yet it has not been made public. We know, ot course. that they will be two of the screen's top ranking stars. We have our own opinions about the matter, and-we're ri ht! The theatre manager, Gerald Dittus. is presentin them now. Tihey are Charles Reidle and Vir inia Underhill, and gem what we have heard they'll be adding ano?her Academy Award to their collection. Lest minute entrances are being made, the lights are dimmed, and there goes the curteinl All the characters and events herein depicte'd are fictitious, and any similarity to actual persons, either living or dead, is purely coincidental.

TCDLJRISTS After receiving their passports from Captain Hargis, the tourists boarded the good ship "Hilltop" and were oft on another educational tour. Experience having been gained last year when the tourists were stowaways. they.do not get sea sick so easily and know their way around much better. ln the beginning of the year, the tourists enioyed a deck party with the stowa- ways. It was also the pleasure and honor of the tour- ists to attend a Halloween and Homecoming dance with all the passengers and most of the officers. Here's hoping that the tourists have as much success in their iourney through life as they have had on this pleasant tourist-rate voyage. f i 5 1 9 FZ X A 4 , . .. , 'ft 4 , .J , , . .V . . 4 . . .

I939, when we began our voyage. We are the largest number of stowaways to ever board the good ship Hilltop. We held a deck party with the tourists in October. The main event of the evening was dancing on deck. We are planning a docking party iust before our ship lands in the spring. completing our voyage as stowaways. Then we will be ready to enter as tourists on the ship's nent voyage. We have little business as we are only stowaways and have had few meetings in the hold. but the boys of our class are making quite a contribution to the basketball squad. OFFICERS nldent - - - W.

The ship's library located in the hold presents one ot the chiet attractions tor the use ot leisure time on board. Our present library is quite an improvement over that ot tormer years. The open stack system now beinq used allows the passen ers' to have the opportunity ot browsing through all the library books, which are arranged on the silielves according to the Dewey Decimal system. At present there are in our library one thousand tive hundred thirty-tour books and pamphlets, ol which one hundred were added this year. Among these recent acquisitions are a New World Book encyclopedia, a set ot science books, several books ot fiction, and a few new books in each ot the other tields. Copies ot thirty-tive various magazines may be found on the magazine rack or in the classrooms. All the old magazines are tiled away in the stack room, adioining the library, tor tu- ture references. During the year about torty books were borrowed from the state library on a neighboring ship tor three months. An intensive book repair program is being carried on at present. ln the spring, Mr. Wensley, a representative ot the Gaylord Brothers library supply company, qave a very interesting demonstra- tion on the repair ot books. At this time we want to thank two of our passengers, Misses Lillie Mae Jackson and lrma Mae Ryan, for their assistance in cataloging and repairing ot books. The purpose ot our library is to give the passen ers an opportunity tor gaining knowledqe supple- mentarv to that found in their textbooks. lt aclso provides a place ot enioyment tor reading maga' zines and fiction. The library has been a very popular place tor all the passengers on board, and we sincerely hope it will continue to remain so.
