VERNON, MISSOURI ELIZA ETH SMITH Secretary The members of the school board are elected by the people of Ht. Vernon. They are responsible for a program of edu- cation for the boys and girls of Mt. Vernon Public Schools. From left to right are Earl Smith, Dr. Kenneth Glover, President, Janes Hunt, Dr. A. M. Alexander, Superintendent of Schools, Elizabeth Smith, Secretary, Karen Williams, Ben Cuendet, and Frank Cofer. Dr. Alexander recently received his Ed. D. degree from the University of Missouri Several new additions have been made to the Mt. Vernon Grade School pictured above. These include three classrooms, a principal's office, and a cafeteria. Approximately 225 lunch- es are served each day to grade and high school students. The high school buildings, includ- ing the main building, the industrial arts building, and the home economics cottage are pictured at the left. 2 The MOUNTAINEER is rapidly becoming established as one of the traditions of Mt. Vernon Schools. Year after year it serves as a pictoral record of many of the outstanding events of the year. Within its pages, too, are the faces of those many friends whom we have come to know and love in ou associations in the classroom and in other activities. Congratulations and an expression of appreciation are due those of our nu - ber who have worked so earnestly and so diligently to make this yearbook a suc- cess. Again it is representative of the very fine attitudes and the high standards maintained by Mt. Vernon boys and girls and their teachers. As your superintendent, I am glad to have a part, small as it may be, in your experiences of the year and I com- mend each of you in your achievements. May this year hold nothing but pleasant memories for you in the days to come. With the school year of 191.19-1950 successfully completed, lt. Vernon High's reputation has grown far be- yond the reaches of the local com- munity. As one student put it, 'Why this year even the teache s are human.' This exemplifies the close cooperation between teachers and stu ents. The co munity has come through by helping the band purchase new uniforms. The student body has won recognition everywhere. But underlying all this cooperation and recognition is a foundation built on friendliness and good sportsmanship. There are no strangers at MVHS. 2 f DELBERT L. 'IHEELER RUTH BLAKEY Ind. Arts, D. 0.

The cast was well chosen and their acting was excellent. The characters were as follows: Henry Turner . . . C. W. Matthews Sammy Turner . . . Roy Jean Carter Doris Turner . . . Pat Bassore Agnes Martin . . . Carolyn Rathman Gracie Martin. . . Willa Jean Glover Marilee Martin . . Alice Jones Bob Martin . . . . John Furgason Lydia Martin . . . , . . .

The play was held December 7 and 8, with capa- city crowds both nights. 44 MEET ME . IN T. LOLHS Q 'i ': 'x fg7'Jj!63x Qfqr, xt ' V .fr ta' rel! A P l V Y , 1. .A.'
