5 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 contest. mBetty1v 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." B!-XND?'?? 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. 3. 'i 32, 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- ish! -SU1

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 teacher. 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 eventful year. 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! bed. 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.
