It harly seems possible that we, who so short a time ago were "the Freshies of '38," are now the Juniors of 1940. Two years ago, when we were only Freshmen, we were proud of our large class of twenty-three members. Since then we have grown until we have nearly doubled that number, making our class the largest in the school. In quality, as in quantity, our Junior Class ranks high. You will find this statement more true as we hastily sketch over some of the talent that is displayed in our class. In our class, two students returned to Mount Vernon last fall with scholar- ships earned by a summer spent in canvassing. These students were Olive Faber and Marguerite Buzzard. Musical talent is not lacking among us either. What would M. V. A. be like without Robert Szana and his accordian? Or Eva Glaunsinger who is capable of playing either the saxophone or the guitar? Two of the clarinet- ists of the school are Robert Franzina and Carol Hackleman, both Junior boys. Carol also has ability as a vocalist. Page Sixteen 'We Juniors are quite studious. too. You will always see the names of Jean Carr, Mary Catherine Bee. Irene Corder. Betty Carol Ashton. and Clara Haines near the top of any period or semester Honor Roll. We chose Joseph Carpenter to be our president.--to lead our most honor- able class on to victory. Everyone likes Joe for he never fails to have a cheery word and smile for all he meets. Joe's right hand man, our vice- president. is Catherine Campbell. whose sweet face you will often find in the school library. Our secretary is one of the tiniest girls o. M.V.A.-Irene Corder. Irene's winning personality more than makes up for her smallness of body, however. In the selection of our treasurer. we wanted to find the one who would be the most trustworthy. so we chose Samuel Lee. None other is better fitted to be our sergeant-at-arms than Jack Snider. Clarence Haldeman, that boy who is so eagerly watched by everyone who might be expecting a package from home, is our class pastor. When Professor Lovell told us that we could have both Miss B1 uck and Mis Kelley for our faculty advlsors all of us were overjoyed Their faithful work and that of our officers togethei with the cooperation o ou1 loy al classmates has made oui Junioi Class an outstanding O1g3I'11Z8t101'1 in the school New Seniors FIRST ROW fLeft to Right! twxvcr Smd env- r Cli oe arpe-nlzr in zisz om ani on it erine Cxmiplx fm n ul SFCOND ROW 1 irnex in A h rin 1 sell i xi ini re: 1 :ze-l 1 e- uns iff in iver o A Oldham 1 ir Bulzirc i u er iui Q- Berry Sn 1 Crane in r muy llirw FOURTH ROW Ury i x llir nc iur e ric 'w 1 in 1 , v . . .

Although the class is small. it has an increase in members over that of last year. Illinois. West Virginia. Ken- tucky. Pennsylvania, New York, and especially Ohio are the states represented in the Sophomore Class. Also several Sophomores live in the village of Academia. The members of the Sophomore Class are talented not alone in music but in other lines as well. A small orchestra might be organized by our classmen playing the piano trombone saxaphone guitar string bass and clarinet If you were to xisit M V A you would find members of the Sophomore Class working in the carpentiy shop the piess the laundly the kitchen the plumbing room and on the farm thus showing the d1XQ1SC talents of our members yew'-r New Juniors FIRST ROW tLeft to Rlghtj Nan Tisler Dewey Daw on Qirol Kin le-bert Nlelun une Chaunsln er Donald P u lrn um on r r 1 tx r dw xr Cecil Wolcott ms na nm een 1 x RD ROW Bcity -I 1 lin I lrwin Bunum 1 lt in on x nr Xrlhu Xi' iur fordcr i X li on Paqe E :ghteen , . l A 1,,ArM, .. .X ' : .'l' ,' K .

THE CLA S 0F 1943 HOUGH the Seniors are, generally speaking. the leaders of the school, the Juniors are the largest in number, the Sophomores have the most attractive banner-yet it is the Freshies that have completely won the hearts of all. The Freshies have so much enthusiasm, they cooperate so well together, they are so full of pep, they led in the Annual Campaign for so long, and they gave such a snappy program that they have proved to be the outstanding Freshman Class of many yearc Though they are the smallest class in the school they won the highest appreciation and applause for then ouginality displayed on Freshman Day Hats off to the Freshies' ' Getting a Start FIRST ROW fLeft to Rlghll Ruth Shultz Esther Curdcr Xldrx Lou Len Betty Lamb .xox Charlotte Hlett Lillian Robinson Shlrlev Guenther Bertha Haines Esther Wolcott 'Vlurv Ruth Ru '1 nth ee or xzabeth Gemltr Dues lvelyn Cru Nledru Sownrd THIRD ROW Earle Schoonnrcl VVade Yuun Dmvid lladlev H xrold Oldhxm lrancns Nlealn.

HESE words issued forth with some ferver from the chapel. "Who is making all that noise'?,' you ask. The students of the Expression Class are practicing vocal exercises. These phrases are beneficial to them in their endeavor to train their voices. This class, under the supervision of Mrs. Kelley, has given the school a number of entertaining programs which have been enjoyed immensely by the students, and have helped to overcome nervousness and embarrassment on the part of the speakers when before the public. At the end of the course in expression every student feels that something vital and attractive has been added to his personality. Recitalists Page Twentyztwo "RUN J0 ll, ME ELEVE " ONJOUR mes elevesf' "Bonjour Mademoisell Bruckf' These are the words you hear when you first enter our French Class. Many students think of foreign language as just another required subject, however, it means more than that to us French students. Since it gives the students insight into 'the customs, lives, and even the 'thoughts of other people, it helps them better to understand their type of culture. The students who are now taking French, I am sure will never regret it in their later years. Linquists Esther M. Bruck Mademoiselle Page Twenty- three Harold F. Lease Scientist NATURAL Plllli UMENA UR Physics Class, with its able instructor, Professor H. F. Lease, is con- vinced that we are studying one of the most valuable subjects taught in the Academy. Although there was only one member in the class the Hrst day of school, there are now eleven in the class at the present time. We are studying natural phenomena in Physics and each one of us is required to make certain personal observations and to draw definite con- clusions regarding the principles of physical science. Each student, even though some were not mechanically inclined, has become more interested in the subject while working the experiments. A knowledge of physics is worthwhile to everyone but some may not realize it. Scientists do not claim they have all the improvements that can be made even in this day and age. For instance, most of the money that we spend for electric lights goes for electricity which is changed to heat and only a small part pays for the light. The automobiles we drive are about five to ten per cent efhcient. If we could transform all of the energy of a gallon of gasoline into the motion of the car and none oi it into heat we could travel four hundred miles on a gallon of gasoline instead of twenty and we would not need a cooling system which releases heat energy into the air. It may be of interest to all to know what applications of physical science are made in your local industries. Experimentalists Page T Wen ty:iour It Plltllll CRIPT RE HE Bible Doctrines Class is one of our most interesting classes. It is com- posed of thirty students who are mostly seniors. We believe this subject to be very vital in our education so we study it with great diligence. To Lecome laniil.a. with the bible s one ol th- purposcs ot this course, therefoxe, we not only learn where to find texts but we alsg memorize many of them. The most important section o, the course is the study of Daniel and Revelation to which we devote a large part of our time. Elder Farley always begins class with prayer, asking the Lord to be with us and direct us in the study. After spending a year in this class I am sure any student will feel he has really gained a great blessing from studying these great principles of truth found in Gods Word. Bible Workers Richard F. Farley Pastor Page T wen ty:tive Margaret G. Plymire Literary Critic THE MIITHER TUNGUE H! Jeff, do you realize that the five-minute bell has rung for school. If we are not in the English room by the time the tardy bell iings - well, I just might as well say two hours free labor for me because it will be my third tardy mark." Jeff replied, 'LI have had so much free labor, that two hours more means nothing to me." Since English Literature Class is one of the first period classes, the two boys find it very difficult to get to school on time. The study of English Literature provides a knowledge of English authors and their influence on our world today. At the same time it develops the mind of the student, which encourages him to use the library with a definite purpose in mind. If this purpose is carried out in the way it should, it will cause the student to enjoy literature in the proper way. Mrs. Plymire, our English teacher, has taught the students to appreciate the study of "Old Bible Stories" also. A portion of the year was devoted to Biblical Literature. There is nothing more important than the study of the Bible, and a thorough understanding of good English will aid in this great object. "Menu of Letters Page 'I wcnlyzsix TEMPURAL EED ON'T you come as my guest to one of the pleasant meals which are served in the dining room at Mount Vernon Academy? As we approach, the savory odor of well prepared food greets us. Entering the cool, quiet of the dining room, we see attractively arranged tables covered with snowy table- cloths. The room fills with chattering students and the meal begins. We cannot help having healthy appetites when we see the tempting dishes pre- pared by our smiling matron, Mrs. Franzina. Cenora Franzina Matron Cafeteria Page Twenty-seven D. Robert Edwards Director CA TATA AT M.V.A. N DER the able direction of Professor Edwards, the Chorus has accomplished a great deal this year. One of the most outstanding contatas that was presented was "Ruth the Moabitessf' This cantata was given by a group of students at Worthington and Marion, Ohio. Another cantata which was successfully given was 'LMemories of Easter Mornf' In these Cantatas there are solo parts thus giving the students an opportunity to develop their vocal talents. There is a great deal of enjoyment to be had in being a member of the Chorus and at the same time receiving a musical training in group singing. Chorus Page T wcnly:ciyhl THE UNIVEIR AL IN TRUME 'I' NOTHER outstanding feature of our school is our Piano Department, which is directed by Mrs. Lovell who teaches the piano and marimba. There is quite a number of beginners as well as more advanced students who take part in recitals which are given from time to time. These programs give the students valuable experience for public performance. A very thorough course is given in technique which is needed by any student if he expects to become an accomplished pianist. There is always a demand for good pian- ists as they are needed in many of our school activities. Music is something we can all learn to appreciate so we hope that there will be many more students who will take advantage of this opportunity in the future. Music - Mrs. V. P. Lovell Pianist Page Twentyznine Paul F. Applegate Manager PUBLI HING HE Press for the past few years has been the main industry of the school. This year it has continued its service under the supervision of Paul Apple- gate, Manager, and Leroy Applegate, Foreman. God has greatly blessed in this department, in that the Press has had sullicient work to give steady employment to several students, thus allowing these students to work a part of their Way through school. Besides printing the school paper and our Annual, the Press publishes the Columbia Umkm Visitor each week, and also serves the business men of Mount Vernon and the surrounding vicinity very efficiently. Rush Job Page Thirty DEPARTME 'I' EALIZING that we should prepare ourselves for some vocation in life after our school days are over, a group of boys gather every day to study and put into practice the fundamentals of Printing. Some of the boys have chosen this trade as a means of helping to pay expenses during attendance in college, while others are taking advantage of the course in order that they might graduate and continue toward success in the printing world. Much of the equipment which the class uses is of high quality, being borrowed from the nearby College Press, which traces the abilities of it's skilled employees to instruction gleaned in the Printing Class. With the expert teaching facilities available, these boys will be able to finish the course with a complete knowledge of the essentials of printing and will be prepared to fill most of the positions available in the printing trade. Pri nte rs LeRoy E. Applegate Foreman Page Thirtyzonc THE PIHICESS 0F LIFE HIS year we have a very enthusiastic group of students in our Biology Class, which is taught by Mr. Willison, the farm manager. The class consists of forty students who are mostly Freshmen and Sophomores. Our class work has been very interesting. We have taken up the study of human life, of animal life and of plant life. Earl Willison In our investigation of human life, we learned all the different bones Farm Manage' of the body and the various functions of the body. While studying animal life, we experimented on many animals by locating all the organs and by analizing their particular functions. We have also taken many field trips over our campus. On these trips we studied trees, flowers, birds and insects. Consequently, we have enjoyed the class discussions, the group work, and all that goes to make an interesting Biology Class, in that we have learned to understand our bodies, to take care of ourselves, and to appreciate nature. Biologists Page Thirtyztwo MECHA IC HE Auto-mechanics Class is studying a text book based on fundamentals, and containing essential automobile information. A knowledge of its contents will enable the student to buy, use, and repair automobiles intelli- gently. In the first Chapter we studied the car as a whole and then as separate units. The succeeding chapters of our text divide these units into their component parts until finally we have studied every essential part. The class has seen motors, clutches, transmissions, generators, and many other essential assemblies taken apart and all have helped with the work, thus gaining actual experience. From other monographs and helps we have learned some of the problems, and also some of the good and bad features, of the latest models. Some of the worse features on the late model are: first, the rear window has a pro- pensity to pile up snow and sleet thus obstructing the vision of the driver of the most streamlined cars. Second, generators are inadequate and there- fore the batteries are insufficiently charged for starting on cold mornings. Third, and perhaps the worse feature of all is that about sixty per cent of the cars have over-loaded tires. After learning most of the automobile essentlals the class as a group visited a motor coach company where busses, funeral cars, and ambulances are assembled. Most of the individual bodies were made in that plant and assembled with the other parts. This gave the class an opportunity to learn in a few hours time what perhaps could never have been learned from a book. X Shop Practice Theory Robert Richardson Engineer Page Thirty: three I JZ.-...-...i UUH LEADER Ruth Corder Editor THE PIRIT 0F M.V.A. THE Spirit Staff of 1940 has done much to improve and modernize the Spirit of the past. Our subscriptions at the close of the campaign totaled over one thousand, which has helped to accomplish this feat. Another factor, and a most essential one is that our staff, which was very carefully chosen, has worked together very cooperatively. The leading members of the staff are: Editor-in-Chief, Ruth Corderg Associate Editors, Irene Corder and Ben Mowry, General Manager, Phil Mannong Assistant General Manager, Wilfred Robinson, Advertising Managers fof which we had three during the school termj, Edward Johnson, Terry Templeton, and Joseph Carpenter, Circulation Manager, Evelyn Farleyg Assistant Circulation Manager, Thomas Lambdon. Our advisors are Professor Edwards and Mrs. Plymire. "Spirit" Staff Page Thirty:six THE TREA URE CHE 'I' NLY through the efforts of our Annual Staff, IS the Treasure Chest made possible. With their organized efforts, the pictures were taken, the articles written, and all the necessary data gathered. The school family appreciates the efforts of this important organization in giving to us this valuable book of memories. In our Treasure Chest this year we find all the outstanding events that took place during the year, in story and in picture form. These features help to make our 1940 Annual stand out as an invaluable aid to our school prestige. All this is done by the cooperation and willing efforts of our staff. Annual Staff Betty Gerst Editor Page Thirtyzse Ven Wilfred B:R0binson President TUBE T ASSIICIATIU HIS year the Students' Associations big objective was to raise money to complete the gymnasium in the boys' new dormitory. In order to do this they put on a campaign for that purpose. They also had a Saturday night Benefit Program, the proceeds from which went to the finishing of the gym- nasium. The Fire Department installed some new fire extinguishers, and put all the fire equipment in fine condition. The officers of 1939-40 are: President, Wilfred Robinsong Vice-President, Ruth Corder, Secretary, Marjorie Herdmang Treasurer, Robert Brown, Social Secretary, Catherine Campbell, Fire Chief, Jeff Hickman, Assistants, Russell Behner and Clarence Haldeman. Each class has a representative in the Association, - for the Seniors we had Kenneth Shultzg Juniors, Richard Moore, Sophomores, Lois Hickmang and for the Freshmen, Ruth Shultz. Thus each class has a voice in the matters of the school. Ofliccrs Page Thirtyeight 7 GIRL CL B NE of the important events which takes place every Thursday night, is Girls' Club. Each week the girls look forward with anticipation to the meeting of the Four Leaf Clover Club as a diversion from their daily round of duties. Weekly programs are given under the direction of the leaders with different girls taking part. Sometimes the club has the boys as its guests or the boys come over and give the club a few numbers. 'tFriendship Friends" is another item the club sponsors and the girls always enjoy this feature of our activities. This year the officers who helped make our club a success were: Fla!!

T-N Four Leaf Clover Club Officers 'W' Page Thirtymine RELIGHIU Seminar Ofiicers TUDENTS of M.V.A. have taken an active part in the Sabbath School during the current school year. When called upon to act, they have shown themselves willing workers. no matter what place they have been asked to fill. Several have had the opportunity of standing before a group of students and teaching the Sabbath school lesson. Others have had the privilege of acting as assistant superintendents or secretaries. Those who are gifted with musical talents have helped many times to make our Sabbath school alive and interesting. Many have shown their willingness to cooperate by performing the other little duties that make our Sabbath school a success. To all these individuals, their responsibility has served as a magnet in drawing them closer to the Saviour and to the student body in Christian fellowship. Sabbath School Officers Page Forty ACTIVITIE. M. V. Officers NE of the most interesting and helpful activities in Academy life at M.V.A. is the Sunshine Band, - the visits made on Sabbath afternoon to the sick and shut-ins and the many visits to the Infirmary where somebody's mother or dad is confined because of sad circumstances. These visits are indeed a help to a spiritual education. The students realize more and more how thankful they ought to be for the health and strength they have. The program is conducted by students who are willing to use their talents in the Lord's work. With a song in their hearts and a prayer on their lips, they return to the Academy in time for Young People's Meeting, happier for having spent a Sabbath afternoon in spreading "sunshine" Rays of Sunshine Page F orty-one Li WHAT WE D0 'PIRIT CAMPAIG l Ed Miller - Betty Gerst Leaders HE Spirit Campaign went over with great success this year. As usual the race was between the boys and girlsg each side trying to get the larger amount of subscriptions. As we look back over the past campaign, we find that the boys had been defeated for the previous seven yearsg but this year goes down in history as a victorious one for the boys. At the beginning of the campaign a leader for each side was chosen. For the boys it was Ed Miller, who proved himself worthy of the office, by doing a splendid job of leading his side on to victory. Betty Gerst was chosen as the leader for the girls and she worked hard to keep the girls' slate clean. But they say the boys had too much "Spirit" in the Spirit Campaign of '39, The final score was --Boys 527, Girls 456. Once in Seven Years Page Forty:four NNUAL UAMPAIIL Cam paign Leaders HE "Treasure Chest campaign for 1940 opened with enthusiasm, as usual, for nothing takes the precedence over the HAnnual," in recalling the happy events of the school year. Were it not for this campaign, the entire book you are now reading would have been only a dream instead of a reality. After a few weeks, the first enthusiasm died down though it was not the fault of the leaders. Marjorie Herdman and Tom Lambdon strove to push the Seniors and Sophomores on to victory but the same was true of Melvin N iswander and Betty Lambdon, leaders of the J uuniors and Freshmen. Much interest was aroused during a chapel program given by the Annual Staff. A coffin, containing a mirror, was placed on the rostrum and the stu- dents were invited to view the remains of the individual, who because he was dead, finactive in getting subscriptionsj was causing the death of the Annual. t. , lg, 1 fff' f Good Sports Page F ortyzti ve Leaders HARVE T INGATHEIRIJI K VISITOR to the campus on the bright sunny morning of October 5 would have seen a group of jolly students anxious to depart on our annual Harvest Ingathering trip. The lovely weather inspired the students to par- ticipate wholeheartedly in the activities of the day. Six band leaders were appointed, - Betty Gerst, Olive Faber, Catherine Campbell, Joe Carpenter, Ed Miller and David Fockler. These leaders then chose band members in rotation from among the student body at large. This made the trip more interesting as each student was anxious to get as much produce as possible for his band. We were all very successful and upon returning in the evening, the cars were well loaded with produce. It was all very thrilling to see how much each band received, as the winning band was promised an award. Thursday night at eight o'clock an experience meeting was held in which many interesting experiences were related by the students. This closed our Held day, which was enjoyed by all. We were greatly encouraged to learn that the returns for the day totaled 3205.00 in cash and at least 3120.00 value in produce. Field Day For!y:six PRAYER BA ll. HE week dedicated to prayer, is a very happy and helpful week for all of the students. The brethren who speak to us touch our hearts with their many illustrations and helpful counsel from the Word of God. At this time many who have not given their hearts to God surrender themselves to Him. This special week is so named because of the bands that meet in different rooms and have a word of prayer by each student gathered there. It is a great privilege to be able to pour out our hearts to God. We all are closer to God and we realize our many sins and mistakes. This week of prayer stirs our sleeping souls and makes us want to be more like Jesus. I 1- ga: " i i l The Hour of Prayer Leaders Page Fortysseven AC'I'IYlTlEi' At Study OMETHING is brewing on the girlis side of the chapel," remarked one boy to another. "Does look suspicious, I declare," answered one of our West Virginia fellows. 'AI suppose the girls are going to announce the date of the 'Spirit Receptionf' came from another quarter. Such remarks as these could be heard from the boy's side one day in January as chapel was about to begin. After the devotional service was over, sounds came from the rooms in the front of the chapel and 16 girls marched out while Evelyn Farley played the march. The girls, wearing dark shirts and white blouses, ascended the rostrum and formed a line with their backs to the boys. On their backs were the letters spelling "Spirit Reception." Betty Gerst, the leader of the losing side, then stepped forward and invited the boys to attend the reception to be given in their honor on February 4. Originality Page Fortyzeight BIIYU' CLUB HE boys took a great interest in the Three I Club this year and it has been a big success. The Three I Club stands for Interest, Inspiration, and Im- provement. The meetings are held every Thursday evening and the boys always look forward to the next meeting. Sometimes we invite the girls over for an entertainment. For the first semester, our president was Robert Szana who did a great deal for the club. He was assisted by Ed Miller as vice-president. Our secretary was Joe Carpenter, who keeps the records of the meeting. Our honest boy of the club was Tom Lambdon the treasurer. Last and strongest is our sergeant-at-arms, Hugh Dates, who kept order. Our second semester leader was Lee Melvin. He was assisted by Wendell Carpenter, our vice-president. The secretary was Sam Leeg treasurer, Richard Mooreg and the sergeant-at-arms was George Stillwell. Professor Lease has helped as sponsor, to make the Boys' Club a success. W. 4 y 15 'za Q. ' 1. 1. 1, Four Square Page Forty-nine S WAlHINGTON Washington Teachers Page Fifty AY Eddie, do you remember what happened on Sunday morning, April 21, l940?" 'ADO I? How could I forget? Remember how we got up at 4:00 o'clock, after but little sleep the night before, and prepared to leave for Washington? We surely did hurry that morning so that we would be ready to leave on the dot at 5: 00 o'clock, for the sooner we got to Washington the better." It surely was an interesting trip all the way, especially because of all the stops we made at interesting, or historical spots. But the best part came when we arrived in Washington. Didn't they give us a warm reception though? I always heard that Southerners were about the most hospitable people. Maybe Washington has quite a few of them. Then remember all the fun we had down there visiting the school and the beautiful city of Washington? The time we spent there seemed only too short, for before we knew it, it was Tuesday morning and time to come back to dear old M. V.

Everywhere the program has been given, our friends have treated us royally, opening up their homes to entertain us and showering us with ap- preciation. It is expected that many students will come to our school next year as a result of our efforts. For Dear 0Id M. V. A.

Also many other things in harmony with the Dutch idea. Our Girls' Club President, Marjorie Herdman, gave her welcome address. Dressed in a Dutch costume, Betty Gerst sang Hln a Little Dutch Garden." Then came what all the boys were looking forward to with great delight-"The Eats." A reading "Hats of Other Days" was given by Ruth Corder while several of the girls pantomimed the scenes. Ishkabibble, a trick working horse, Ten Easy Lessons in Reducing, were skits in which the girls took part. The reception was enjoyed by all and proved to be a great success. Reception Attraction Page Fifty-two INIIU TRIE HE Mount Vernon Academy Dairy is vitally concerned about the health of it's patrons and the quality of the milk products it offers for sale. The dairy herd is under Federal supervision and is clean from the follow- ing diseases-Mastitus finfectius gargetj, Bango fcontagous abortionj and Bovine Tuberculosis. A herd that is gree from the above diseases meets certified standard requirements as to the quality of its milk but we were not satisfied with that amount of protection for our customers so we installed a new Cherry Burrell 5-in-1 pasteurizer which consists of a holding and cooling vat, and pasteurizing vat, all in one piece, and a bottler and capper so the milk need not be touched by human hands. We also use live steam from the 61f2 horsepower boiler to sterilize the milk pails and cans. Thus our public is assured of a safe product.
