A Word From the Sophomofes
In September, 1933, when our class entered Mt. Vernon
High School, we had great aspirations. Although we have
reached some of our goals, we have much to strive for in
our remaining years of high school.
We are proud of the part the Class of 1937 has taken
in school activities. We have participated in athletics, in
musical organizations, in the various clubs, and our class
members have succeeded on the scholarship teams of 1934
Our first class party, which was held this spring, was
an enjoyable affair.
We are hoping always for higher achievements in the
coming school years, so our class will in 1937, have a record
of scholarship and extra-curricular attainments of which to

September, 1932, we Juniors began our climb of knowl-
edge in Mt. Vernon High School, and have gained recogni-
tion in scholarship.
The Juniors are very active members in all events
which take place in school, a large number of the Juniors
having taken part in athletics, operettas, and plays.
Miss Domigan directed the Junior play, "The Family
Upstairs," which was met with great success. The Junior-
Senior Prom at the Country Club was enhanced by many
lovely colors and everyone enjoyed himself. We are sure
everyone of us is looking forward to an honorable place
on the roll of the 1936 graduates.

In the summer of 1931, we, who were soon to be Fresh-
men, could not help wondering what awaited us in our four
years of high school. Now, these four years completed, we
look back over days filled with achievement and success.
As a class we have held no small place in the life of our
school. In our Freshman year many of our members ob-
tained honors in scholarshipg then, when we were Sopho-
mores, becoming more interested in school activities, we
participated in many organizations as well as in athletics.
Our dramatic career started when we were Juniors with
our production of "The Youngest". Don't think from this
that we are too staid and seriousg consider our contribu-
tions to cheerleading! We also enjoy social affairs, we
were hosts at last year's Junior-Senior, and enjoyed being
guests this year. To sum up our career consider: our 20
lettermen, our scholastic record, the organizations we have
helped to start, our Senior play, our Senior Prom, and our
last activity - graduation.

Joy-filled have been the days spread o'er the path
Now silver, far behind. Past the steep cliff
The road ahead is luring wilderness,
All upward climb unto the eagles loft
A height for those who with high courage laugh
At steps almost too steep and cloudy dimness
Hovering like a bat that will not lift
Lest he be vanquished. Can it be youth's faith
Will then go on repulsed by rain, yet strong
Our hearts, our lips still brave, surmounting gloriously,
With victorious song? We will our summit gain,
There find eternal triumph, there remain.
To you who long have taught to fearless be
Our thanks - to you we raise our triumph song.
- Elizabeth A. Smith.

Ray Fawcett leaves his football ability to Jimmy Jenkins.
Audrey Higgins regretfully leaves her silence to Worm Weaver.
Bob Bennington cheerfully leaves his unopened books to Joe Beever.
Joe Stauffer and Queen Cozad leave all the little cooings, bickerings, fusses of a
worthy and necessary love to anybody that wants 'em.
"Soppy" Wilkins tearfully contributes his noted sweatshirt and church going to
Libby Smith tenders her poetic ingenuity to Ernest Brunner.
Rodney Morison leaves his unhumorous wit to Glenn Keigly.
Gwynne Horner leaves her antiquated sophomore dates to Faith Poat.

Dorothy Jennings leaves her Oriental poise, and outlook to Lucille Mondron.
Bill Brown sorrowfully leaves Janet Graham in the loving care of the young men

Charlotte "Pood" Johnson returns her beautiful blond tresses to the science depart-
ment for further chemical analysis concerning their magnetic charm as to draw-
Ralph Lipscomb leaves his unlimited abilities and powers to be the notorious and

The loving song-bird of the Senior Class, Ellen Gost, leaves her trilling and pas-
sionate voice to Sara Cochran.
Bob Custis leaves his distinguished, sensitive and efficient ears to Dan White.
Mercedes Ross unwillingly contributes her inconsistent sophistication to Ray Miller.

Senior Class Prophecy
IN behalf of the seniors of the class of 1935
we went to see Madam X who gazed in
her crystal globe to discover the future of
our dear friends and fellow classmates. It
is now 1955.
The first scene is laid at the Ohio State
Campus where the student body is celebrat-
ing the winning of the Big Ten Champion-
ship by Ray Fawcett's football team. At
the same time, Lowell Perkins, president of
the institution, bored by the noise, has re-
quested his secretary, Charlotte Rossi, to
call together the faculty including: Rodney
Morison, the electrical wizardg Charlotte
Lepley, the English instructor, James Gross-
man, the professor of mathematicsg Betty
Cline, the art instructor, and Walter Strie-
bel, German professor, in an attempt to con-
trol such nuisances among the students as
Leroy Durieux, Ralph Brown, and Jack Frib-
Moving on to the business district of
Columbus we enter a large oiiice building
where we see Carroll McMillen, feet on desk,
dictating to his secretary, Ruth Hoovler,
while George Delgouffre, the oflice boy, is
trying to clean the office before closing time.
In the outer oflice, waiting for an interview
are two well known business men - Ray-
mond Carter, and Frank Hoffman, accom-
panied by their secretaries Edna Mayer, and
Erma Brown. In the next room, Don Butcher,
head of the bookkeeping department is sup-
ervising the work of his assistants, Ray Lan-
noy, George Beach, and Earl Underwood. We
enter a large telephone exchange which is
under the management of Don 'Chilcote.
Some of the operators are Marcella Baker,
Hazel Agnew, Dorothy Squires, Mary Klein,
and Ethel Ann Bailey.
The scene shifts now to a small grange
meeting where we see some familiar faces,
Ralph Baker, Floyd Mahard, Harold Scott,
Louis Blanpain, the famous Coe brothers -
John, with his wife the former Alice Dick-
enson, and Fred, still single in spite of his
poetry. Larry Bartlett, Harold Pealer, Mar-
shall Adams, and Andrew Walton are among
those present. Bob and Dick Johnson are
giving a demonstration of a new piece of
farm machinery which they have recently
And now we are on our way across the
Atlantic on an ocean liner. Captain Bill
Brown is shouting orders to his mates,
Dwight Donaldson and Floyd Dunmire who
are directing Charles Ackerman, Bernard
Weiss, Robert White, Jack Parnell and Clem
Amicon, members of the crew. The steward-
esses, Sara Jane Eckert, Ruth Frye, and
Geraldine Fowler come running when they
hear a strange sound and a stowaway, who
proves to be our old friend Rollin Wilkins, is
dragged out of hiding. We go to Paris to
the shop of Ruth Hantman, famous dress-
designer, where we see Dorothy and Char-
lotte Johnson, Isabelle Bair, and Gwynne
Horner, as models. We are entertained there
by a world famous quartet: Ellen Gost,
Pauline Dudgeon, Charles Wise, and Ralph
Lipscombg a play is given in which Mercedes
Ross plays the part of the leading lady op-
posite Eric Hawke. There is a small dance
orchestra in which are Emma Lou Butler,
Dwight Cornell, Bob Custis, Wilfred Horn,
and Charles White, with Betty Mahaffey as
pianist. Gene and Ruth Ella Payne make a
big hit singing duets for us.
On our arrival at New York, we visit
the N. B. C. Studios and recognize many of
our old friends. We see Jim Boyd, taking the
place of Eddie Cantor, with George Glaros
as Jimmy Wallington. We see the well
known quartet composed of Jennie Rouse,
Emily Walker, Corintha Walker, and Row-
ena Simmons. Roger Bair the up-and-com-
ing Walter Winchell, is doing his part, while

The High Scl1oolPape'r
DURING the last semester, a new journalism class was in-
troduced into the high school's curriculum. It has been several
years since a similar class has been held in the local school.
With Miss Sara Cannon in charge, the group of thirty-three
juniors met every second period to study newspaper tech-
nique. The purpose of the class was to prepare the students
to edit a high school paper and to take charge of the school
annual in the future.
Once a month, as a result of this class, the Forum news-
paper was available to Mt. Vernon people. The paper met
with success as was shown by the circulation which was great-
er than any previous local school paper.

The High School Play
HE presentation of "The Swan" on December 6 marked
a new departure in high school plays.
Written first in Hungarian by Ferenc Molnar, the play
is marked by the picturesque treatment of a well-known
theme. The designing mother induces the princess to no-
tice the tutor in order to arouse the interest of the prince.
In addition to its creditable action the production was
distinguished by the beauty of its settings, costumes, and

THE Mt. Vernon High School Chapel Choir was organized in 1933,
It was derived from the "Music Masquers" which has been a singing
organization in our high school since 1928. This organization meets
every day the fifth period for vocal study and practice on the best
known a capella choral numbers. There are 42 members in the choir.
The Chapel Choir has taken numerous trips through Central Ohio,
singing choral services in many churches and schools. They sang at
the Ohio Pastors' Convention at Memorial Hall, Columbus on Feb-
ruary 24. They also provide sacred numbers for our own high school
On October 24, 1934, the Music Masquers from the Choir presented
a very successful light opera, "The Chimes of Normandy."
"Chimes of Normcmdyn
A COMIC OPERA
N October 24, 1934, the Music Masquers, under the direction of H.
Ogden Wintermute, presented the Chimes of Normandy by Robert Plan-
quette which was a chiming success. The setting is in the little village of
Corneville, about the year 1800.
The Opera concerns Henri, Marquis of Corneville, who has been since
childhood an exile, who now returns to his ancestral home on the occasion
of the great annual fair in the village. Much to his dismay Gaspard Iinds
that his niece, Germaine, whom he had hoped to marry to the Bailli, has
become the servant of the Marquis, as also have Serpolette and her iisher-
man lover, Grenicheux. Henri soon solves the mystery which has for so
long surrounded the chateau, making it an object of dread to the villagers,
by discovering that Gaspard is only trying to protect the wealth he has
hidden there. This disclosure and the ringing of the bells drive Gaspard
crazy. A grand fete is given in honor of the return of Henri to his an-
cestral home. Serpolette arrives as a Marchioness, as some papers found
in the chateau indicate that she is the lost heiress. The miser however, re-
covers his reason, and shows Germaine is the true Marchioness. A love
duet between Germaine and Henri, and the reconciliation of all parties
bring the romantic story to a close.

MONG our High School organizations of which
we all may be proud is our orchestra. This year the
repertoire included many pieces which one more
often finds on the programs of far more advanced
musical organizations, for instance: "In a Chinese
Temple Garden," "Rosamunde Overture," and "Nea-
politan Nightsf' Aside from playing for school
activities, the orchestra has played for the College
Woman's Club. We may be proud of our success
this year but we are hoping for even better results

HE Band this year, although greatly handicapped by lack
of uniforms and instruments, has displayed a remarkable
spirit of cooperation.
It has taken part in numerous affairs such as the Armi-
stice Day Parade, Political Conventions, Hollywood Night,
football and basketball games, and has assisted in all com-
munity celebrations. It sponsored the "Hackensack Cir-
cus", given by the department of music, which proved to be
a great success.
If you should ask a football or basketball player "What
helps more than anything else to create a fighting spirit?
He would invariably answer, "The band."

N ingenious comedy, by Carlyle Moore, "Stop Thief" was presented by
the Senior Class, June fourth under the direction of Miss Sara Can-
non. The play is called a Ufarcial fact" and is filled with clever lines and a-
musing situations. The plot centers around a young bridegroom who dis-
covers, on his wedding day, that he is a kleptomaniac, because he is always
finding strange things in his pockets. He is constantly kept in "hot Water"
by his fiancee's absent-minded father, the maid, and the real thief, who
passes for a detective. The real thief is finally discovered and pardoned
on the promise that he and his girl will "go straight", and the play ends
with a triple wedding.

HE Football team of 1934 enjoyed a successful
year under a new coach, Paul H. Snyder. The boys
adapted themselves to the new system with a will-
ingness. The team did not win the championship,
but it did make a noticeable improvement by climb-
ing out of last place into tie for third. The seasons
record was four games won, two games tied, and
three games lost.
Mt. Vernon enters into a higher class of compe-
tition in 1935 by leaving the Central Ohio League
and entering into the North Central Ohio League.
Schedule and Results
The prospects for a winning season are not overly
bright because eleven lettermen are lost by gradua-
tion. The outlook is not absolutely black because
of the seasoned supply of material coming to the
Varsity from the J uniorifarsity.
The Junior Varsity, coached by A. J. Robeson,
played a regular schedule of games and were fairly
successful in games won and lost, winning 4 and
losing 4. The new system of two football squads
playing regularly scheduled games gives every boy
who aspires to play football an opportunity to play
the game. Under this system Mt. Vemon football
will surely move upward.

HE Mt. Vernon Basketball season closed with a
record of nine wins and eleven losses. The record
of games won and lost does not give a fair picture
of the season. Many games were lost by very small
margins and the Jackets were completely outclassed
on very few occasions.
The team was one of the smallest in stature ever
Srhedulc mul Results
to represent Mt. Vernon High School.
The bright spots of the season were Mt. Vernon's
two victories over Coshocton, Central Ohio League
and District Champions, and State Basketball tour-
ney finalists. The outlook for next year is dismal.
Eight of the hrst squad are lost by graduation. Let
us hope that this year's Junior Varsity men will
fill the vacated positions and bring Mt. Vernon's
Basketball back to its accustomed high plane.

THE try-outs for cheerleaders this year resulted in the selection of Jim
Boyd, Bill Brown, Carroll McMillen, and Dan White as cheerleaders. Al-
though the old "orange and black" had an "off" season these boys did their
best, and with the "do or die" attitude, created the best school spirit the
local school has known for a long time.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECT Cvmimwd ffvm Page 37
Elizabeth Smith reads her original poetry,
and Pauline Bell, Gertrude Simmons and
Pauline Burris are replacing Clara, Lu, and
The scene becomes more familiar and
we recognize a machine shop in Mt. Vernon,
and see by the sign that it is owned by Rad-
abaugh and Neibarger. William Blanchard,
Lawrence Simmons, and Dan Grubb are me-
chanics there. We enter a hospital and see
Wayne Mills in conference with some of the
other doctors, Dick Magers, Curtis Daniels,
and Elroy Peacock. Among the nurses we
recognize Barbara Daniels, Helen Watson,
Eulalah Tucker, and Margaret Kunkel. Jean
Lapp and Nina McElroy are there as dietic-
ians and Dorothy Kempton as the techni-
cian. Upon leaving the hospital we visit the
library where we have a short talk with
Betty Conn and Edith Frye, the librarians.
Next we revisit our old high school where
we recognize several members of the fac-
ulty: Audrey Higgins, French, Nellie Mc-
Millen, shorthand and typing, Dorothy Jen-
nings, Music, Grace Teeter, bookkeeping,
Sara Boltinghouse, English, Virginia Mas-
teller, Latin, Sue McCoy, History, and Helen
In the business district we stop at the
Kroger Store where Bob Bennington is man-
ager, with Stephen Ulery, Ruth Stofer, Bob
Fox, and Wilda Tulloss as clerks and Dudley
Woolson as errand boy. In Dr. Gray's of-
fice Charles, ably assisted by Wayne Oakes
and Martine Bartlett, is carrying on his
father's work as a dentist. In the Republi-
can News Office where Fred Taylor has risen
to manager, we find Bill Colwill, Floyd
Bumpus, Mary Eleanor Foster, Beulah Selby,
Catherine Tier, Mildred Simmons, George
Phillips, and John Bryans.
We now are shown a scene at the Home-
stead Club where many of our fellow class-
mates appear still young and gay: Bill Shutt
and the former Miriam Remlinger, Tom Mill
with his wife whom we knew as Jean Gower,
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Stauffer lWilla June Co-
zadl , Bob Wythe and the former Marguerite
Biefness, and Mr. and Mrs. Milton Beeman-
we called her Helen Swigeart.
The crystal now became dark, and we
realized that we had seen it all. So we left
the fortune-teller's, wondering whether these
things would really come true.

F OR the second consecutive year the Mt. Vernon High School Bookkeep-
ing Scholarship Team Won first place in the State Commercial Contests at
Bowling Green, Ohio. Mt. Vernon High School's classification is Class II.
This year's contest was the closest since our participation in these events.
No school won more than one place in this event but Mt. Vernon's well bal-
anced team ranked it high in total scores. Ruth Hoovler won individual
honors by winning first place in amateur Bookkeeping.
The Typewriting students from our school who qualified for the State
Contest both won state honors in this event. Helen Mavis placed second
in the State, and Margaret Kunkel placed fifth. Both of these girls are to
be congratulated for bringing to our school its lirst State honors in novice
Credit must also be given to the other students who competed in Short-
hand, Typewriting, and Bookkeeping. Even though these students won no
State honors, they gave their best efforts to uphold Mt. Vernon's high
standards in scholarship.

Staff appreciate the willing support of the fol-
lowing patrons whose donations helped make
