This winter was probably the most busy time of the year for most of us.
Parties and dances came first on our list of social activities. The Velvet Curtain
had their annual treat in December When, after a dinner at the Holiday House, they
saw the play THE MENAECHME at the University Theatre. The G.R.A,, our
school's group of girls who have an abundance of energy and talent in athletics,
sponsored several activities. These included: a "sock hop", a lovely Valentine's
formal, "Cupid's Ball"g a pencil sale, and many playnights. This group seems
to employ some kind of puzzling magic, for it isn't everyone that can make dance
decorations vanish into thin air the Week before the dance!
M.V.H.S.'s Young Homemaker's Club also had an active
year in our school. Everything from recipe-exchanging to hair-
cutting filled their many meetings. They are exceptionally proud
of one member, Miss Judy Busenbark, better known as "Miss
Betty Crocker." Judy won the honor this spring in the annual
In looking forward to spring, the first event- that comes
to our minds is the Junior-Senior Prom. The juniors, Whose
plans are now well under Way, will have to really have a "hum-
dinger" to compare with last year's "Springtime Silhouettes."
l958 is still not at an end, and until it is, life Will probably
continue at this same never-ending, jet-propelled rate. A band
tour is in the planning stages, three one-act plays are being
rehearsed, a senior trip is being fought over, and innumerable
other activities are being squeezed in before that hour, when
the 1958 seniors will walk down that aisle for the last time.
All in all, it's been a great
year, with many experiences that
will go with us for the rest of our
lives. It seems impossible to be-
lieve that this merry-go-round of
constant good times will come to an
end. But, actually, it never does,
for as long as there is a building,
a faculty, and a student body, the
spirit of M.V.H.S. will never dimin-

A busy year has taken place within the walls of M.V.H.S. Yes, 1958 has been
wonderful. It was productive for each student, and equally rewarding for each
This constant deluge of acti-
vity didn't start on the first day
of school. lt went on all summer
as well, for when the doors were
opened this fall, the students were
greeted with a new Home Economics
room. The luster of this lovely
new room could be matched only by
the smile on Mrs. Colon's face as
she met her first classes of a very
The school year started off with a
bang! Football season! This was one of the
most wonderful times in our busy year. The
Homecoming celebration was perhaps the
most magic evening for the M.V.H.S. stu-
dents, especially for Queen Linda and her
court. lt was truly a never-to-be-forgotten
night for everyone there.
Do you remember the minstrel show
that the great men of the "M" Club pro-
duced? The senior girls really tried to do
as well with their Salvation Army skit, but,
even with all the air that Midge blew through
that big bass horn, it just didn't go over!
The highlight of the year, of course, was that wonder-
ful addition to our trophy case. Mt. Vernon was the con-
ference champ, and we went to many extremes to show
our pride. Many celebrations were held fboth in and out
of school! and for the first time in the history of the school,
an afternoon was spent in the gym indulging in our favorite
activity, dancing to rock 'n roll!
Our school had a most unwelcome visitor this fall,
also. The "flu-bug" paid us a visit! If you were lucky
enough to escape it, you got a free two-day vacation,
but, unfortunately, the majority of us had to spend it in
One cold Saturday morning this winter, several
ambitious followers of our Youth Center clan, gathered at
the City Hall, and gave the student "dance hall" anew
coat of paint. The light green and pale pink were certainly
a welcome change after having looked at those brownish-
maroon walls for the last falmosti twenty years. About
fifty percent of the paint went home in their hair and clothes,
but the job had been accomplished.
