uation from M.V.H. S. , the thought dawned upon us that
our high school days were in the past. As we looked at
our classmates through a curtain of tears, all the memories
that surrounded each individual came back to us. Our
memories weren't all of just our classmates, they included
incidents from all four years .......
Even our freshman year hadn't faded so that we could-
n't recall incidents that took place then. From the first
day, we, l57 students entered, only the deepest shade of
green seemed to fit us. However, with the help of our
sponsors we were soon in the swing of things, and boy did
we swing at our first all-school partyl It wasn 't long un-
til we were noted for our willingness to work in club pro-
jects as well as class projects. ll wonder if we set a re-
cord for breaking pop bottles while working in the basket-
ball concessions.l Of course, this didn't include everyone
in the class--remember the times when marbles rolled in
study hall and no one volunteered to pick them up? Some
of us joined the various clubs while others sat for the
half-hour in home room fsupposedl studyingl. Everyone
thought the school was being invaded when a group of
freshman girls formed a little German Band. It wasn't in-
vasion--just inspiration for fun. We proved we were cap-
able of making good decisions when we chose our ueen
candidate for our freshman year--we had a maid-of-honor
for basketball. We knew we weren't the only good de-
cision makers because we cheered the football team and coach as they touchdowned to a P.A.C.
Championship. All too soon our "green" year was over and we were looking towards the future
with high hopes .
lt wasn't long until the three months vacation was in the past and M.V.H.S. welcomed us into
the fold as sophomores. We smugly called the freshman "greenies" and tried to sell them elevator
tickets. However, when someone kindly dubbed us "Silly Sophomores, " we changed our tunes a
little. The hard work on our float, The Cat's Take
the Cake, for the football homecoming parade paid
off, we won the trophy fthe only time in our high
school careerj. As we became prominent citizens of
M.V.H.S.. many of us were elected officers of the
clubs that we had joined the year before and since
no one could seem to discover our real character,
we were elected time and again. On the morning of
February l , we creaked and groaned up and down
the stairs. Reason? The donkey basketball game was
the night beforel The Juniors beat us, but we got the r
profit. For some unknown reason we began to study- I
of course it couldn't have been that Caesar was in-
teresting, or Biology fascinating, or the dynasties of
China intriguing--but it could
have been because of low
marks on report cards. Our
learning also included some-
thing new called Polio shots--
Ouchl Once again, it was the
end of a memory filled year so
we closed our books with a
satisfied feeling--we were half
Little did we realize what a great year lay in store for us as
we opened the door to our Junior year. We were known to
everyone as "Jolly Juniors. " We started the year with a bang
by getting our class iacketsl Instead of the traditional maroon
trimmed with gra , we chose gray with maroon trim. Naturally,
they arrived on the hottest day of the season, but we wore them
regardless of the 800 temperature. At long last, we selected a
candidate who was elected basketball queen--our first and we
hoped not our lastl Since we needed scads of money to give the
Seniors the best prom ever, we began to pound the pavement to
sell magazines. For the first time in history, nearly every door
in our town was knocked upon for the same reason--to sell
magazines. Our goal was not reached, but we made approxi-
mately S600. As work faded into play, we all ioined in and
had a swell time at the school party. Since it was leap year
and a Sadie Hawkins Dance, we really took advantage and
nearly everyone had a datel We chose the theme of "Moonlight
and Roses" for the prom held in the Armory. It was a gala
affair. During one home room period, we got together and
made a final selection of class colors and a class flower--tur-
quoise and white and a red rose. With the coming of spring,
love bloomed with the apple blossoms, and class rings were put on chains around certain girls'
necks. Whoever heard of boys' class rings staying on their own fingers anyway? So it really did-
n't bother us when we had small meetings about "love at school." We were proud as pink of our
new rings, and wanted everyone to see them. Six weeks tests, exams, and our Junior year was
over. We cleaned our lockers with heavy hearts because there was iust one year left in high
school for us.
As we climbed the steps as Sophisticated Seniors, we held our heads high, however, we were
soon yanked from our pedestals by the confusing problem at hand. They had changed our schedule
all around and had introduced the Diagonal System. We just couldn't figure out what a diagonal
was--but could anyone? We were told we needed our mone , so iust before Christmas all through
the town Seniors could be seen running around--selling cards. We really made ourselves a huge
sum of money. On October 22, we took the National Merit Scholarship Tests. The results ----
Well! Once again the queen was from our class and was crowned in traditional homecoming
fashion. History, other than our class history, was made when we beat Lincoln of Evansville for
the second year in a row! This was a unique phenomenon because they were ranked much higher
than our team. On February i4, the Girls' Club gave a Valentine Tea. The food must have been
good the way the Senior boys flocked to the tea table, in spite of all the griping. Soon it was
prom time again, the Juniors gave us a lovely time. However, we weren't as gay as we had been
at the prom in our Junior year--this was our last formal high school dance. It wasn't long until
we were sitting dressed in our caps and gowns at the baccalaureate service. And now, on grad-
uation day, we realize that if it had not been for our sponsors, teachers, and parents, we, the
class of T958 would not be graduating from M.V.H.S. We give our "Thanks" to you. As we re-
cord our never-to-be-forgottenhistory for all to read, we bid a sad farewell to M.V.H.S. where

FOOTBALL 1 95 7
Playing their first season under Coaches Byrd and Russell, the Cats compiled
a record of six wins and two losses for the entire season. Their conference record
was 5-2 allowing them to finish in third place behind Rockport and Cannelfon.
At the beginning of the season they were doped to be the top team in the
conference and they ran true to form in their first three games. Cannelton and
Rockport ruined their chances for the conference championship.
Brauser led the scoring with 74 points to finish second in the conference.
He was trailed by Allyn and Stewart with 60 points each. These two players
were selected for the all-conference team.
The i957 season marks the withdrawal of Mt. Vernon from the P.A.C. con-
ference after being a member since its beginning 20 years ago. ln that time
they have won lO0 games, lost 41 and tied 4 for a percentage of .708. Their
record shows conference titles in l94O, l943, I944, I946, l954, and a tie
with Tell City in 1951. Next season will find the Cats playing ll man football
for the first season since l932?'???

Fast breaking, high scoring and, at times, uncanny accuracy combined with uncom-
fortably close scores characterized the T957-58 edition of the M.V.H.S. Wildcats.
Entering the sectional tournament with a record of I5 wins and 5 losses they had
established the best record since the l92l-22 season. During the regular season the Cats
established a new school record by scoring a total of T349 points. A single game record
was set against Richland when they scored 90 points.
To Coach Solomon goes the credit for a well coached club that improved as the
season progressed winning l2 of the last T3 games, high-lighted by the victories over
Lincoln and Dale.
