Gur A. . B. Officers
The officers of the Associated Student Body hold the
most important student positions in school. Each officer
has an important and difficult job - one that is vitally
necessary in maintaining good student government.
President Al Littler, wielding the gavel at the right, has
exerted a Erin and friendly leadership throughout the
year. His efhcient fellow officers, above, Assistant-
treasurer Bob Parkinson, Treasurer Norm Etherington,
Vice-president john Haubner, and Secretary Kerry Lynn
Pearson, spent many hours each week in the A.S.B. of-
fice managing student affairs.
This year's chief school project was the improvement of
the auditorium. A new grand drape, new spots, and a
new cyclorama gave the auditorium an elegant "new

Graduation Rewards Four Years of Study
When the class of '459" entered high school they had
ahead of them much work, much to learn, and many
wonderful experiences. Elected as class president was
Ray Bloom. Other class oflicers were vice president,
Ray Lillquist, secretary, Gary Morrow 5 and treasurer,
John Haubner. The students quickly joined various
organizations and -turned out for sports and dramatics.
The class was especially proud of its girls' basketball
team for winning the March of Dimes championship.
The assembly "Then and Now" was presented to
the student body in the spring.
The next fall officers chosen were President John
Haubner, Vice president Dee Hall, Secretary Diane
Genovese, and Treasurer Connie Cook. Students who
had earned a place in the honor society were given
a luncheon by the Kiwanis Club, and this became a
yearly tradition. Boys turning out for varsity sports
made a fine contribution to the teams. Al Littler
was among the varsity basketball players who repre-
sented MVHS at the state tournament. School yell
leaders included Connie Cook and Diane Barry and
Jean Dewey was a song leader. Karen Williamson
won the award of c'Miss Pep" for basketball. Again
in the spring the class assembly was presented, the
action centered around an academy awards theme.
This production won for the class the best assembly
award for the year.
As upperclassmen in the fall of 1957, Sandy Bidwell
was elected president g Joe Arcadia, vice president g
Larry Whalen, treasurer, and Linda Britten, secretary.
The Junior Class had three players on the starting
line-up of the championship football team, and Al
Littler received the blocking award. Taking part in
the homecoming victory celebration were Homecom-
ing Princesses Connie Cook and Diane Genovese.
Kerry Lynn Pearson and Carol Busby were two of the
schoolis song leaders. In swimming, John Cramer won
honors as did Mel Kingma in wrestling. Winners of
gentlemen athlete awards for this year were Norm
Etherington, swimming, and Nels Molstad, tennis.
In November the annual Thanksgiving assembly was
presented with a classroom setting. By this time Al
Littler was serving as vice president of the student
body and Norm Etherington was assistant treasurer.
On May 2 the Junior Prom "Mystic Moments," was
held at the Holiday Ballroom. Bill Rasar and Judy
Nelles were crowned king and queen from Mount
Members of the class of "59" walked the halls as seniors in the
fall of 1958. Al Littler was A.S.B. president, Norm Etherington,
treasurer, and Kerry Lynn Pearson, secretary, Class officers were
Dave Highnam, president, Ray Bloom, vice president, Karen Fin-
ley, secretary, and Larry Whalen, treasurer. Al Littler was named
football captain and received the blocking and inspirational player
awards, and Larry Whalen and Al Littler were named to the All-
Northwest first team. Steve Whoolery was elected gentleman ath-
lete. Willard Anderson was basketball captain and, in track, out-
standing pole vaulter John Cramer promised to break all county
and state high school records as spring turnouts began. Yell Leader
Mona Peterson and Song Leaders Kathleen Murphy and Diane
Genovese were part of the year's excellent song and yell squad.
Homecoming was a bit damp, but the rain took second place to
Queen Kerry Lynn Pearson and Princesses Pat Wood and Jean
Dewey. The Senior Ball, "Je T'Aime" was held at the Holiday at
Thanksgiving time. Reigning as king and queen were Nolan Lee
and Diane Barry. "The Christmas Miraclef' which was written by
the class, was presented as the Christmas assembly.

Mrs. Frances Davis, Mr. Perry Brown, Mr. George Mowrer, M. Mal-
colm Thomson, Mr. Turner Pedersen, and Miss Minnie Gerriets.

Although failing to achieve victory as a team, the Mt. Vernon Bullfish can look
back on the 1958-59 season as one of individual success. Even though they were
lacking in depth, the Bullfish accounted for themselves by setting many individual
and relay records. Our high school can be proud of such a fine swim team.

Team Hopes to Maintain orthwest Title
The 1959 baseball team hopes to defend successfully its title of Northwest League
Champions in this springls competition. Coach Joe Day's hopes are high for a
strong team. John Day and Larry Whalen were the force behind the team's success
lastfspring and with another yearls experience they should prove even more of a
boon for the team. First baseman Clark Moore, the coach feels, will provide the
real hitting power of the club. John Day, Larry Whalen and John Haubner will
comprise the pitching power of the club with each one doubling at other positions
when not on the mound. The club has great hopes for catcher Bob Sullivan, and
Moore will be returning to the first base position. Curt Sprague will be making a
bid for the second base position while Al Littler will try for the shortstop position.
The rightfield opening will be filled by Gerald Christianson. Third base will be
filled alternately by Day and Whalen while John Haubner will be returning to the
centerheld position, and Mike Pettett, Chuck Young, Ken Schaffer, and Jerry
Swartos will be vying for the leftheld position. Strengthening the squad will be
