During our four years we have witnessed many things which we will long remember, and espe- cially will we remember the erection of our new voca- tional building. We have watched this project grow, step by step, into a beautiful new building. But what is probably more important than the erection of this build- ing, is the building of character, citizenship, leadership, and scholarship. Even though we build a new building only every fifteen years or so, however, MtVTI-IS is con- tinually building boys and girls into the community's citizens of tomorrow. We, the class of '50, are proud of the part that we have played in helping to promote bet- ter citizenship and character building in our school. C0'I' School Administration Seniors Iuniors Sophomores Freshmen Departments Athletics Activities Advertising State Tournament IIEIIICATIU The Class of '50 proudly dedicates this Vernois to the "record-Wrecking" Mt.VTHS RAMS and to their coach, Stanley Changnon, Who made these boys cham- pions not only in basketball but in character and sports- manship as Well. These boys, Willing to make sacrifices and do Without individual honors, Won not only a goldt trophy for their school and community, but proved that through sportsmanship and teamwork and With the superb training of Coach Changnon and his staff- they were able to retain the title of State Champions for the second consecutive season.

The need for a new vocational building was known before the war and the first bond issue was voted on and passed early in l942. Then came the war and the plans were put aside tor the duration. ln the tall of '48, it was necessary to vote additional bonds in order to meet the higher costs ot material and construction. ln the spring ot '49, construction was started on the new building, and all year long we have watched it grow until today we can see it nearing completion. ln all probability, the building will be ready tor use tor the tall term of '5U. -i - 555 'if EEE III III - if iliilu E 2 BUILDING A Buili' in 1 I Ban ners EH EERE IEEE Erecied in 1921 iI'I' in 1 1936 The Old-1945 The New-1950 admin if -..

ART Art has a definite place in the lives ot all. lt is evident in our belongings and surround- ings. Art brings out the beauty in a building, dress, or other articles. The art department of our school does a fine job in its work tor the school. Projects are boostered by its posters, plays are improved by the scenery it makes, windows are made beautiful at Christmas and Easter time. Chalk talks also make interesting assemblies. BUSINESS EDUCATION lncluded in this department are all com- mercial subjects. Shorthand and Typing l and ll are offered to juniors and seniors plus per- sonal typing for one semester for those juniors and seniors desiring only enough for personal use. Other subjects in this department range from business English to advanced stenog- raphy. Practical applications of these courses are to be found in the model office in Building A where business students do mimeograph Work for civic and charitable organizations. awww."

Our team won 24 consecutive games without a defeat. They also ranked first in the Associated Press Poll all season, being the second team to ever hold first-place rating for the entire season. The team won the South Seven Conference title for the second year in succession. These are just some of the few things that this year's team has accomplished, The Rams won the Christmas Tourna- ment this year to make it the fifth year in succession that Mt. Vernon has won the tournament. This was the last holi- day tournament that will be held in Mt, Vernon for a few years. The team averaged 65 points per game and had a team shooting aver- age of 42 per cent for the entire sea- son. The first five, consisting of Max Hooper, fohn Riley, Eddie King, Bobby Brown, and Walter Moore, averaged 30 points per game more than their oppo- sition. Max led the team with an aver- age of 49 per cent in all of the contests. Included in some of the better compe- tition that the Bams played this year were Collinsville, Centralia, West Frankfort, and lohnston City, Of these lohnston City seemed to have the better club as they fought hard all the way to try to upset our mighty Rams. Our bitter rival, Centralia, came close to a victory but we defeated them on their home floor by a score of 32 to 27. Col- linsville put up quite a battle before they were beaten, 37 to 30. The Seniors on this year's team are Max Hooper, lohn Riley, Bobby Brown, Wayne Wagner, and Charles Owens.

JEFFERSON ASPHALT CC., Inc Mt. Vernon, Illinois Q 164 2 1 AMA N P' P l f fl to . ul l IF OUR PRIDE IS SHOWING! For 45 years Huston-Patterson Corporation has been pro- ducing fine high school and college yearbooks . . . books which have won honors in competitive showings and many expressions of appreciation from gratified clients. But, since a 1949 annual produced in our plant took FIRST place in competition with entries from FORTY-ONE states. we think we may be pardonecl if our pride begins to show. We're not too proud, however, to give a large share of credit to the school's staff and faculty advisors. Such suc- cess never would come without the long hours of pains- taking care they devoted to the preparation of copy and layout. Yes, in the final analysis, it's co-operation that counts. Teamwork spells achievement in printing as well as on the football field or basketball court. Co-operation, teamwork-they are words which through too frequent use may have lost some of their meaning. But here at Huston-Patterson we still strive to give them their full import and significance in our yearbook printing as well as in all other phases of our business. HUSTON - PATTERSON CORPORATION 355 North Main Street Decatur, Illinois KIGSX In 1950- The Three R's Stand For THE RECORD-'RECKING RAMS "We went up there to bring home the bacon and we brought the whole hog back." This quotation by Coach S. A. Changnon fully ex- plains the accomplishments of this year's Ram basketball team. The Rams not only won the State Tourna- ment this year, but they also broke eight records and tied four others in doing so. The records broken are as follows: Most points scored by team in four state finals game-293 Highest score by winning team in title game -85 Most points by individual in four games- Max Hooper-104 Most points by individual in single game- Max Hooper-36 Highest total score in title game-146 by Mt. Vernon and Danville Highest single game score for winning team -86 Highest total score in single game-I47 by Mt. Vernon and Freeport The following records were tied: Three time state titlist-Mt. Vernon Two straight titles-Mt. Vernon Winning title with unbeaten team-Mt. Ver- non with 33 victories Most field goals in one game by an individ- ual-Max Hooper with 16 In addition to these records, Coach Chang- non becomes the only coach in the state of Illinois to coach two consecutive championship teams. These records, along with a great bunch of boys, have made the Mt. Vernon Rams the Champion of All Champion Basketball Teams. This year's Rams have been proclaimed the greatest high school team ever to play in the state of Illinois. KISS? 1. L S a x in 4 fi ,xx 4 1' Y Q. ,, , Ag MMS WZF'7 EWN l, M?
