For the past decade scores of scholars have en-
rolled at and graduated from M. P. T. H. 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. Let's all continue to obev our capable cap-
tain and help him to keep the ship sailing smooth-

As stowaways we entered our stately ship, a group ot young and
laytul investigators. 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-
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
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.

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-
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-
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.

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-
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

The hold was packed with fifty-seven stowaways on
5 ' September 2. 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
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.

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.

For the last three years the taslr of preparing our
athletic teams tor interscholastic competition has
been placed in the hands of Leroy Halber . Mr.
Halberg received his athletic training in the Uni-

man in Springfield High School.
Mr. Halberg is modest in victory, calm in defeat,
and courageous in the face ot' the difficulties that

Summary - - -
Here af Mounf Pulaski baskefball is The one sporf. Qur season was
no'l' so successful, buf we succeeded in winning once In a while and
gave several good feams a real scare.
Our 'ream was composed of one leHerman from las'r year's crack
feam and several numeralmen. They were all good ball-handlers,
and all had fheir good nigh+s.
Our firsf game a ainsf Bloomingfon was a real ihriller. Blooming-
fon, as usual. hadqa world of hei hi. We were beafen 24 io 23.
Bloomin lon fhen wen'r on +o degaf several of 'rhe besf Teams in
cenfral iilinois. This was one of our besi played games.
We 'rhen opened our home season and walloped Greenview 5I lo
22. We were definiiely on fha? ni ht hiH'ing from all angles.
Now came our fime 'ro play one of 'fha oufsfanding feams in cenfral
Illinois, Pefersburg. We were beafen 35 +o 20. Affer a slow sfarf
our aHack seemed fo bog down.
We won our nexl' fwo games defeafing Monlicello and Saybrook.
by scores of 29 +o 22. and 34 fo 25, respecfively.
We fhen losl +o Afhens. Feifshans, and Carlinville in a row. We
seemed fo have a midseason slump fhaf could noi' be shaken off.
ln our mos+ 'rhrilling game. Lincoln. our fradifional rival, defeafed
us 23 lo 2I. We led a+ various fimes fhroughoul' ihe game bui
lacked +he necessary fwo poinfs which would mean al' leasf a fie.
The game ended wifh Mounl' Pulaski "banging away" buf wifh no
Taylorville, coached by our former menior, Dolph Sfanley. came
here boasfing one of fhe fines? feams in fha Soufh Cenfral Con-
ference. They lived up +o their boas+ by +aking us by a very lop-
We hopped back info ihe win column by defeafing Monficello
again, fhis fime by a 30 'ro 22 score. If was fheir firsf defeal since
we had beafen fhem back in December.
Anolher snag was hif and we were a ain on fhe shorl' end of five
sfraighf games. We were defealed gy Normal, which had one of
lhe inesf feams in cenfral Illinois. A narrow margin of 'two poin'l's
provided The viciory for Normal.
On February I6 we played our banner game of 'fha season, defeal'
inq Feifshans 32 +o 30. This was our firsl' and lasf overlime of fhe
season. A lasf minufe baskef by Dick Talmage sewed up fhe conlesf.
We were 'l'hen beafen by Bloomingfon again fo conclude our season
on fhe Mounf Pulaski hardwood.
We won our firsf game of fhe fournamenf defeafing Aflanfa, buf
fhen losf fo Lafham.
