We have taken the humdrum of schooldays and endeavored
to translate it into the idiom of festivity, of color, and ex-
travagance that exemplifies our neighbors to the south.
We hope, thereby, to extend a token of friendship to the
Spanish-speaking world. In short, We Want to make "good
neighbor" more than just a phrase. So here is Mt. Vernon
High in formal pose, in Work, and play. Here is our at-
tempt - for your satisfaction or disdain. Here are we -

Miss Michael points to the excellent French and Spanish display
prepared by the language classes.
Perhaps we were puzzled by the "cos" and "ahs" that emitted
from her classroom - phonetic records that sounded so like
the lament of a dying cow-, but shle taught us and taught us
thoroughly. Not content with her contributions in French, she
introduced the study of Spanish into the school. She was for
several years adviser for the Girl Reserves. She sponsored
the Student Council and has followed it through until it stands
as a symbol of honesty and authority. Who can help remark-
ing upon her interest in each individua.l and the thing he is
striving for? Throughout our four years We have seen her as
a keeper of the flames of order, scholarship, and progress. And
even as we dedicate this book, the effort of our senior year to
MISS IMOGENE MICHAEL, We know that no mere tribute
could do justice to our gratitude.

fWith Apologies to Pepysj
Did enter into High School, and were very merry all the way. Up be-
times, to choose officers of the Sophomores: Claudia McNeil, Marjorie
Masteller, Mary Johnson, Frances Stachelhaus, Helen Giffin. To rest and
slept about twelve months, but then awaked, and never in so much
trouble in all our life of mind, thinking of the task upon us, wherefore
elected Junior officers: Helen Giffin, Dale Gardner, Jeanne Cline, Char-
lotte Wright, officers, and to the auditorium to show "Streetcar in the At-
tic" ourselves in Junior play. Infinite the crowd of dances, parties, and
studies. In the senior year come one whom we made Queen of Football:
Ruth Wright. Abroad to the senior meeting, and chose Roger Spearman,
Joan Culbertson, Evelyn Barcus, and Jean Brown. Come another who was
Queen of Fiesta: Claudia McNeil. News is brought to us that 'ff1'he Man
Who Came to Dinner" is our Senior play. We think we have, if we can
keep it, done ourselves a great deal of repute, and upon the whole bless God
for it. So by and by to Commencement.

Across the Years
Nineteen Forty-five marks the fortieth year of publication Work in Mt.
Vernon High School. A long and eventful road separates Mr. Kinney's
1906 "Forum" and our efforts of today. So, in rememberance of all these
years of toil, we are substituting this, an historical calendar for the usual
record of the year. Here you Will find the gleanings of poring over old
"Forums," "Jacket Journals," and trditional gossip, and, as the 1907
"Forum" so aptly put it -
If these pages you scan in vain,
And fail to find your distinguished name,
You need not boast nor think the editor kind,
Because you were really not Worth the grind.
fcontinuecl on page 961
Mr. Curtis Kinney, first editor of
"The Forum" discusses high school
publications with Art Cassell, editor
of the "Jacket J ournal", and Ted B0-
gardus, editor of the 1945 "Forum."

The long black thing in the halls, which you may have
thought to be a giant python, was really only an electric cable.
It was the symbol of that magic word - movies. They were
not, to be sure, the Hedy Lamarr type of movie. They were
documentary films of small town life made by the government
for showing in Latin America. Mt. Vernon was chosen as the
background. Realizing the Worth of the project, the school
endeavored in every way to cooperate with the photographers.
Mr. Julien Bryan, the head of their organization, gave us a
stimulating talk in an early assembly. In response to his of-
fer, a number of students volunteered to work in assisting with
the lights and cameras. The entire filming was an education
in itself, and our illusions as to the idle life of motion picture
stars were quite shattered. All in all, We felt an intense pride
in being able to contribute so directly to the cause on which
we have based this "Forum."

The Student Council started the year with a strenuous
bond and stamp campaign. With the coming of the election,
they directed their efforts towards obtaining the four mill
levy. In meetings held each Monday, they have discussed the
problems of the school and, what is more important, have done
something about them. Under their supervision, the monitor
system has grown in efficiency and scope.

The Girl Reserves put their talents to fine use
when they made dolls for children at Christmas
and sold lilies at Easter. On the social side, the
officers arranged a Christmas party and a suc-
cessful joint meeting With the Hi-Y. In addition,
The Mother and Daughter Banquet carried on a
time-honored custom, the crowning festivity was
the brilliant formal in April.

A great many of the projects of the art department were
evident and we have appreciated them. Among these are
the assembly that the art and music departments joined in,
the hilarious variety shows, and the excellent poster and
display work. But there is much accomplished by the art
department of which we know little or nothing. For ex-
ample, students have made excursions to various art mu-
seums and collections, going as far as Cincinnati and Pitts-
burgh. Members of the department participated in and
were winners in regional and national contests. Certain
students have performed for civic groups in the city. The
entire year has been, as usual, one of ceaseless enterprise.

The Library Club has grown into an organization that stands among
the very first in the school. Besides its record of constant service as a staff
of Workers that really work-that keep the library in good condition at
all times,-they also have a well-rounded cultural and social program. Es-
pecially well-received have been the lunches in the library at noon, and
the waffle supper at Mrs. Sevitts'.
For the first time in the school's library history, Mrs. Sevitts is offer-
ing a regular library course. This group meets after school, and trains for
Workers in the library. One fifth credit is given, and there are nine in the
course this year.

BOYS' GLEE CLUB
One of the first assemblies of the year showed us what the
choir could do. The band and orchestra pursued their too
often thankless task of playing for the games, assemblies,
plays, and the like. In March, the choir and glee clubs com-
bined to give us a superlative entertainment in "The Sorcerer."
All of these activities were of a high quality traditional in the
music department. As a final exhibition, the annual choir
concert was given near the end of school.

Under the tutoring of our new coach, Jack Anderson, both the football
and basketball seasons were more successful than those of the previous
years. The Yellow Jacket football squad stepped up from a winless season
to four wins in nine starts, dropping two games in the last two minutes.
The basketball quintet won eight of nineteen. In several of the games
they were unable to score in the closing minutes thus losing by just a few
Mr. Anderson, before coming to Mt. Vernon, coached at Jefferson High
School at Dresden, Ohio. He was then inducted into the Army but was lat-
er given a medical discharge. The summer before he came to Mt. Vernon,
he was swimming instructor in Wheelright, Kentucky. Mr. Anderson was
assisted by Guy VanNostrand, Jack Robeson, and Warren Cooper in coach-
The Yellow Jacket football team loses eleven by graduation but have
some bright prospects coming up from this year's reserve along with some
returning lettermen. The basketball team is a little better off by losing
only two seniors, Herb Dietrich and Dick Whetsel.

Helen Colville CMrs. Sevittsj edited the "Forum" this year.
Miss Laura Koons wrote the very charming short story that appears in
this March issue.
A summer's night
A pretty maid
A lovelorn chap
A window high
A father's wrath
A shriek, a sob
A shower bath.
He sent his boy to college,
And now he cries "Alack."
He spent 10,000 dollars,
And got a quarter-back.

A tablet containing the Gettysburg Address has been placed in the

Lives of high school girls remind us
We can make our lives as sweet,
And departing leave behind us
Footsteps on Mulberry Street.
Footsteps which perhaps another,
Should he ever chance to meet,
Would exclaim, "Well who in thunder
Ever had such monstrous feet ?"

"I will," cried a Wee voice from the audience.
Student: "Professor, I owe all I know to you."
Professor: "Pray don't mention such a trifle."
From the Foriun 1909-10
Miss Mary Clark, the high school Latin teacher, has received word that
Miss Helen McNabb was given Junior Degree in music at Western College.
We no longer have chapel programs but instead the hour is devoted to
singing and the study of music.
In honor of Miss Katherine Russell who entered the Cincinnati Conser-
vatory of Music at Cincinnati, the J .A.M, girls gave a spread on September
10 at the home of Miss Myrtle Gotshall on North Mulberry Street.
On Wednesday evening, February 23, the students were highly enter-
tained by a mock trial given in chapel by the Physics class. The trial was
held in order to find out whether or not George Washington was guilty of
cutting down the cherry tree. Mrs. Washington did her best to defend her
son, but George Washington was finally convicted of having cut down the
cherry tree. The play was well arranged and well given, each member pre-
paring his or her own part. The following are the characters:

Nicky doing Okay! Life's little thrills! What you say, Stud?
"One ticket to Rio, please." After two years of endless toil, I've finally
saved up enough pennies in my piggy bank to take this exciting journey.
"All ashore that's going ashore." There is the Captain, Dick Whetsel,
nervously pacing the deck, waiting for the arrival of his favorite secretary,
Alma McGugin. Ah! Here's a nice comfortable deck chair in which I can
relax. Who's that I see over there? It's the wealthy socialite, Elizabeth
Jewell Tier III, who is going to sell chocolate milk to the statesmen at the
Pan-American Conference in Rio, and with her is her chief bottle opener,
Carrie Juanita Parker.
I guess I'll look through the magazine while I'm waiting for luncheon.
Here's the smiling face of Thomas Brooks whose picture is seen on every
billboard and magazine cover in the country advertising Deem's Delightful
Dentrifice, compounded by Dr. Joyce Deem,
Whose picture is this? Why it's Georgenia M etcalf, the famous Pow-
ers' model. What's this? She's leaving for Hollywood to play the leading
role in the dramatization of Gordon. Gerrarol's famous novel, "Moonlight on
the Kokosingf' The picture promises to be one of John Gouoly's greatest
musical productions. All original musical scores will be written and di-
rected by Venona Robinson the Lfoscanini of 1955.

inning made the Giants champions of the season.
"Attention, all you movie fans! Another Mount Vernon I-Iligh graduate
has made good. Bob Williams, the famous baritone, has been given the
lead in Evelyn Barcus's forth-coming musical comedy, 'Texas Nightmare?
Betty McGibney's Mellow Melodians will furnish the 'sweet swing' when
the show opens in the fall. La Veta Yoakum and Joan Burris lead the
chorus in the new dance the 'Fleming Fling' originated by Iola Fleming.
"In signing off, we remind you that if you want to spend an exciting
evening, by all means go to the Rio Club managed by Ruth Wright and
Beverly Fletcher. The show this evening will star that streamline Blues
singer, Miss Sally Newton member of Harry Wright's orchestra which is

Ah! Where's that smooth music coming from? I guess I'll do some ex-
ploring. What do you know! A show going on right here on the ship. I
guess I'll relax and enjoy myself. Here comes the master of ceremonies,
Harry Turner. Let's listen in.
Tonight the program will be given by the passengers themselves. Tour-
ing the world together we have those noted singers, Esther Pharis and Bob
Belt who will sing a new popular ballad. After this number we will be enter-
tained by Warren "Presto" Bresler famous magician and his disappearing
assistants, Jean Thayer and Lavonne McGugin. Next on the show is the
exciting new dance team, Celena Simmons and Harry Glofuer followed by
the side-splitting comedian, Gerald Grabiel. To close the show, Eolgar Bo-
garolus, greatest pianst of the World, will attempt to play "The Minute

Here we are in Rio at last!' I ve just got enough time to sneak into the
conference. Gee! Look at all the familiar faces. Near the front entrance
is Mary Belle Lahmon, the owner of the nation's largest chain of roadside
concession stands. The local "Lahmon's Tasty Tantalizing Tamales" stand
is managed by Marian Amicon, the head cook. Gwynne Hartman is cash-
ier and Frances White has proved very capable in her job as bouncer and
John Blair and Bob Brown are looking after their interests in "Hit It
and It Breaks" Glass Company. Their secretary, Marjorie Masteller, as an
advertisement, is wearing a spring outfit made entirely of glass. Lay those
stones down, you wolves.
Miss Joan Culbertson, renowned journalist, has traveled half way a-
round the world to get a feature story from the great agriculturist, Art
Cassell, who has discovered that the only way to keep milk from souring is
to keep it in the cow.
Charles Miller, George Berger, and John Hiles, the famous engineers
who completed the Pan-American Highway, are giving reviews on that out-
standing book of the month, "How to Dig Ditches and Detour Traffic in
Ten Easy Lessons."
Frances Antill and Adeline Armstrong, New York milliners, are here to
get ideas for next year's hat designs.
There's one of America's leading manufacturers, Katherine Warman,
who kept the nation warm with "Warman's Winter Wooliesf' With her is
her model, Martha Vernon.
Mr. Harry Morgenthau sent his able assistants, Betty Jane Keck, Alice
N ethers, and Pauline Stinemetz to explain why the economic situation in
the United States is not improving.
And there's that brilliant surgeon, Carolyn McMillen, who flew to South
America to remove the wart from the big toe of the president of the Greek
embassy, Stanley M avromates.
On the job we see Jim Hawkins, undertaker, who recently invented a de-
lux tin-plated casket with hot and cold running embalming fluid installed.
Wayne Hillier and Jim McPeek, hotel owners, are having trouble 'with
their bell girls during this conference. The bell girls, Elsie Stillwell, Jean
Brown, Dorothy Willis, and Ardella Batterbangh, think they should be al-
lowed to keep the tips that the guests give them instead of turning the
money into the "Hotel Owners' Retirement Fund" established by Robert
lla Mae Anderson, president of the Interior Decoration Association, is
here to get some ideas to decorate the home of the newly married wealthy
banana plantation owners, Charles Dice and Doris Lorieax.
Herb Dietrich, a travelling salesman, is here trying to sell booklets en-
titled "How to Keep from Blushing." He was making profits until the
celebreties, Beverly Dorsey, Helen Giffin, and Jeanne Cline, glanced his
way. He finally decided it was impossible.
Betty Beckholt and Beverly Parker, joint owners of the "Casa Beauty"
shop in Rio have recently finished their lecture entitled, "How to Stay
Blond without Bleaching."
Charles Knerr and Victor Feldmiller, who have spent ten years doing
research work have announced this amazing fact to the world, that 100076
of the people born are babies.
Andrew Mayromates, famous fashion designer, is here getting ideas for
new creations, the latest of which is that new and exciting gownless eve-
ning strap. A group of his charming models, Letha Lake, Phyllis Poland,
and Charlotte Wright are all dressed in fashions created by their boss.
Gwen Jones and Bernard Frye, representatives of the American Gas
Company, have recently arrived to propose a plan for heating the huts of

the natives along the Amazon. With them are their home demonstration
agents, Jocie Chase and Jim Denuit and their able interpreters, Willard
Peterson and Beulah White.
Mary Johnson, who recently became heir to the Johnson Baby Powder
fortune, has hired Roger Spearman, lawyer to protect her interest in the
Bolivian Babies' Association of which Bonnie Hardesty is chairman.
In his ten-gallon hat, we see Robert Beckley, largest plantation owner in
South America, and his chief cow-punchers, Shirley Hanger and Frances
Lorraine Swatik, famous scientist, after conducting an extensive sur-
vey, had discovered that stich in time saves 9.00000007 instead of the form-
Glancing out of the window, we see Betty Befuington selling tickets in
the box office of Dwight Ryan's theater which is starring Carolyn Ward
and Roy Herrington in the "Adventures of the Skinny Man."
Bill Gregory, the president of the "You Maul 'Em, We Haul 'Em" livery
service, is at the conference with his chief mauler, George Bryans and chief
hauler, Dale Gardner.
And there we see Marian Benoy, who has just written a dictionary of
one sylable words for morons. The book is dedicated to Kenneth Hurlow
and Russell Hulse, who made much use of it in their invention of a right-
handed eight ball for left-handed people to hide behind.
Betty Allen and Jean Spurling, the famous South American jitterbugs,
were quite upset when Richard Cockerham told them that jitterbugs were a
spicies of upset insects.
Gee! I certainly am glad I carne to this conference. I've seen almost
everyone I know. Now if I can only get out through this crowd in one piece.
Ah-at last! Why here's the hospital that Annabelle Robertson and Ro-
berta Connell, famous health directors, founded, and here comes Don Hat-
ton, the new intern, with nurses Gladys Robinson, Pauline Feasel, and
Helen Cowen, casting admiring glances his way.
Who is that coming up the street? Why-it's Admiral Ray Cramer, and
just look at all those ribbons he is wearing! Trailing close behind is that
energetic reporter, Mary Ellen Jackson who is trying to get an interview
for her paper, "Jackson's .living J ournal."
Our South American journey is almost overg and as I walk back to the
dock to buy my ticket home, whom should I see at the window but Betty
Styers, chief ticket agent. The whistle blows for the last timeg and as I
run up the gang-plank, I notice Norma Emery and Retha Fish pulling up
the anchor while Captain Duane Nugent gives orders. I find my place in
the same comfortable deck chair, and just as I sit down to relax my weary
bones, Ida Mae and Rosemary Hildebrand, two charming waitresses, serve
me some refreshments prepared by the ship's cook, Louise Hoar. The last
people I see as I walk by are Betty Payne and Corrine Parker, the famous
novelists, whose "Slaying in the Snow" has just sold the millionth copy.
Last of all I go to send a cablegram which is taken by the ship's communi-
cation's head, Phyllis Shultz. It read as follows: "Had a wonderful South
American trip, but am anxious to return to dear old Mount Vernon."

Bob Baltzell rapidly developed into an efficient guard. His passing

that this is his senior year.

the Booster's Club has claimed her services for the past two years.
Carlton Babbs, the sophomore class president, who has been seriously
ill since Christmas is recovering slowly. The sincere wish of the school is
that "Carty" will be with us soon.

Listen everyone and we shall put you wise to the latest. Upon passing

down music burst upon our ears and when we rushed into the auditorium,

almost melted the silver. My dears, that music was so warm that even H.
Ogden Wintermute tapped out the drum accompaniment with his foot.

from Mount Vernon High School who
have mode the supreme sacrifice
Amos B. Clark
On April twelfth, 1945, the whole nation was shocked
by the sudden death of the President of the United States,
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The following boys have been killed in action since the

"So nigh is grandeur
So near is God to
When Duty whispers
The youth replies,
to our dust,

I can." -Emerson.
