All the informal pictures were taken by Richard Brandt, assisted by Iames Kousoulas and Fred Zerull. Mr. Guy Lipps of Simmonds Studio took all the portraits and large groups. Since we are dedicating the FORUM to Mr. I. F. Thomas, we have chosen his favorite color, red, for the cover and the color throughout the book. The zinc etchings of the buildings were done by students of the art department. The one which appears on the preceeding page was done by Ned Roessler and took first prize in the etching contest. if Ax, .Eli I QW -REQ: 0 K, ,, y , ,Q Q, ii ' Q Z! .ll 3 g, all fee s .fa v 'f ,f" ' . ll n :.'t' W N w Q Af ji! ff' I f . ff 7711 lyk , 1 l f 1 .. x 1,1 X X1 ,Q I, fi n we-352 - --'iii 1,.aff A gg- A P .,-rf Ff' ' 5 A N"-' f QW X J R -,- -N ' .4 N 'Q -ff-,vga I. FLOYD THOMAS The 1948 FORUM staff takes great pleasure in dedicating the yearbook to Mr. I. Floyd Thomas who has given unlimited service to the athletic and physical education departments of Mount Vernon High School in the eight years he has been here. Mr. Thomas takes a personal interest in every boy he has trained, and the boys who have come under his influence feel that they have better bodies and are better sports than they were before coming in contact with "Tommy." In appreciation of his untiring efforts we are pleased to dedicate this book to a good teacher and a true friend.

Oh, the bliss of the first week of school. 5-Tonight we scrimmage Delaware. Gee, we hope we have a good team this year! 8-A rumor is out that we won't have monitors this year. 10-The band members are still going through the halls turning square corners and saying, "Ha1t l-2-kick," in front of their classrooms. ll-We bet it was 100 degrees in every room today. The poor seniors had to take that math test, too. See you in that math class. 12-YEA MT. VERNON, BEAT WOOSTER! First football thuse, and did that band sound good! 13-Yea Mt. Vernon, we won! Iacket Journal subscription campaign is in full swing. 16-lust heard that Canton Timken is bringing their band Friday night. Oh, boy! 17-The advertising staff of the II is still trying to memorize its slogan. The codfish lays 1,000 eggs, The homely hen lays one: The codfish never cackles To tell you what she's done. And so we scorn the codfish, And the homely hen we prize. Which demonstrates to you and me That it pays to advertize. 18-A day that gets even the best of us down. 19-lacket Iournals came out today Cfirst issuej. Booster club meeting and tonight we play Canton Timken. 22-Iust discovered Murray Wright's philosophy of life. A bachelor is a happy guy, He has a lot of fun: He sizes all the cuties up. But never Mrs. one. 23-The petitions have started for senior class officers. 24-The warning has begun: next week is the fifth week of the six weeks. 25-Only one more day of school-this week. 26-Tonight we play Coshocton. We haven't beaten them on their own field for twenty years, either. Csobj lt's been ten years on our own field. Good luck! 29-Monday blues are shattered and so are the records. We beat the Redskins 13-6 on their own field. Holiday declared! CHa, Halj 30-The boys are getting ready to beat Akron Hower Friday night. Page Twenty-four ff X ff!

It was created so that students would, through representatives, participate in the management of their school. The duty of this organization is to set ideals and standards of conduct, and see that students abide by them. If any rules are violated, the offender is turned over to the Student Court. Membership consists of the elected officers, the appointed members of the executive committee, and a representative from each home room. The Student Council was very active this year. It sponsored two dances: the proceeds from the first furnished the final payments on the juke box: the proceeds of the other paid for a seat in the stadium. The Council also spon- sored several assemblies, including "College Day" and "Career Day," and its various committees, especially the safety committee and the courtesy commit- tee, conducted several worthwhile campaigns.

The Student Court is the body of students that enforces the laws that the Student Council makes. The members are nominated by the election committee of the Student Council and are elected by the students. During the year the Student Court met every Friday and judged and sentenced minor offenders. ef L, .

At the beginning oi our sophomore year we elected Steve Deedrick as president of our class: Nancy Frank, vice-president: Betty Turner. secretary: and Ruth Ann Leonard, treasurer. During our sophomore year we ordered and received our class rings. Our junior year was a busy one for all of us. Our president was Iack Elliott: vice-president, Elaine Bricker: secretary, Betty Turner: and treasurer, Iohn Iohnson. We gave "What A Lite" for our junior class play. In May of that year We entertained the seniors with a colorful Iunior-Senior Prom. We had a most eventful senior year. "George Washington Slept Here" was chosen for our senior play. To climax our high school career we held our senior prom at the Mount Vernon Country Club.

The development of new kinds of production and transportation equip- ment, and the redesign of existing ma- chines will greatly increase the necessity for and importance of bearings capable of meeting new conditions of speed, pre- cision, load capacity and endurance. Then the same bearings that have con- sistently and successfully anticipated so many revolutionary developments for more than 49 years, again will rise to the occasion with the same versa- tility and efficiency - Timken Tapered Roller Bearings. Scores of other developments will be noted in all industry through an ever in- creasing demand for Timken Fine Alloy Steels, Timken Seamless Tubing and Timken Rock Bits. Whatever your niche in the world may be, you will always find Timken products helping industry pave the way toward a better world.

Left to right, "Tommy" takes gym roll- many times he is seen sweeping the gym floor: "Tommy" the father, confers with his daughter, Betty Io and son, Dick. Here he referees an intramural basketball game: seventh periods he supervises bowling classes: he takes time out of his busy day to play a few of his favorite pieces. ln the fall his interests of course turn to football: and in the spring its track: "Tommy" always enjoys a good book about sports. To complete an already busy day he referees many basketball games. 'C mme - t ' , X., I N , t s i - :a , , 4 31 g if? Ai: 1,5 4 -gil ' buf Page Two Hundred-four we. we-my WM!!
