V CLASSES SENIORS XYQ, the Seniors of 1948, who are now approaching the time when we will no longer be Students of the Mt. Zion High School, but Aliunni, wish to revall the happy days We have spent in the MZCHS, the grand old school which we all love. As we look hack we See that we have developed from a group of bashful freshmen into young men and women. During these four long' years which have Seenied so short, we have niet with many situations and problems which either will aid us or hinder us in our chant-e to Sl1t"t'9Gtl. All of us have appreciated the fr-iendsliips we have made with fat-ulty and students alike. Our love for Mt, Zion is strong. It is with a feeling of sincere loyalty that we, the Senior Class of 1948, say "So long," to our friends, until we Can get hack for a visit.

Lorraine Wfeldy and Jo Anne Still were queen attend- ants. However, the freshmen candidates wen out and reigned over the carnival.

Susan Alderson and Nancy Bair were flower girls. Money obtained was used for the junior-senior prom, A ci-lass party was held in Mart-h in the form of a skating party at Daneeland. The prom was held May 7, at St-ovill's Club House, lleratur, and was spon- sored by Miss Divilbiss. The i'Sweetheart" theme was used. A banquet preceded the festivities. An evening of dancing was enjoyed by all with the music furnished by Larry Lonney and his orc-liestra. And so, the juniors are no longer juniors, but seniors. With lots of problems left for the new junior class. The seniors of 1949 look forward to their last year at Mt, Zion. Twenty-seven SOPI-IOMORES ' Front Row, Left to Right-Miss Crum, D. Ca mic, V.

Just listen I- , Our class was led by that most cap able Cand handsomej young man, Jim Clark. Jim has mastered his presidential duties Very well, but, of course, he knew he can always rely on his vice-president, NV. Grotjan, if he were needed. Taking' notes of our meetings was R. Wall and P.I.uka was entrusted with all the funds. Stating the problems of the class at student council meetings were M. Overlin, D. Hogan and D. Britton. Good representation, don't you think? llut wait-that's not half ot it! Many of our girls were members of the F. II. A, and the boys were well represented in F. F. A. In fact, we're proud to report to you that Tipsword has been reported for the F. F. A. for the past school term. Speak- ing of F.

Last among activities, but not least, we must tell you that the sophomores sup-- ported some very lovely queen candidates fwr two very important events. Since thee sophs don't lark pulehritude, we 1-hose three pretty lassies as our homecoming queen' eandidates-l'. Nash, D. Camic and S. Harshharger. In selem-ting their candidates for the penny carnival, the sophs used good ta ste and Chose popular R. YVall as queen candidate and J. Clark as the king Candidate.

In the way of entertainment, twe've had a hayride and weiner roast, a sm-hool party, and an April Fool's day party, l All this activity has been sponsored by three capable faeulty members: 'Miss Crum, Miss Plese and Mr. Sampson.

This year brought another neil' club to our midst, the 'fShutter Bugs" or cam era club with Mr. Carl Ross as sponsor. It was organized in September with 62 mein- bers and the following officers were elccted: David Fathauer, president, Esther Choate, vice-president, Bill Kruse, secretary, and Jewel Britton ,treasurer. The shutter bugs meet the first Friday in each month. The object of the club is to brine togetlier those who are interested in taking and developing pictures and to en- eonrage others in photography. A darkroom has been fixed for those who have advamfed that far. The equip- ment consists of an enlarger, chemicals, silutions and pans for developing. The elub is very grateful to Mr. Russell Broughton for his giving us ai sink to be used in the dark- room and to Mr. Scott Barkley for his use of a Contact printer. It is hoped that a program 1-an be 1-arried out of demonstrations and dist-ussions on the use of light and filters, eolor photog raphy, developing, enlarging, action shots, and anything else that the members are pzwtieularly interested in. Along with these hopes of the future go plans for buying a go od eamera to be used by the club and the school. The shutter bugs, in infancy, sh ow much enthusiasm and promise of much profit as well as pleasure. i Forty-six ei i v 1 ' i m Zl SCI l E Front Row, Left to Right-P. Stocks. D. Kiniler, N.

Uut despite these facts, on tl1e average, the chorus does a fine job because, after all, they llilV6 to sigl1t read and 1l19lllU1QlZC piec es. But most of the ti111e Mr. Thompson is quite jovial. He has talked to the chorus about seeing operas. They plan to see at least one opera so111eti111e tl1is year. The reason for our chorus being so large this year is because there is no be- ginner's chorus. These girls practice only 40 minutes a Week. In order to uncover mistakes, Mr. Thompson has lIlild6 recordings of all the girls, voices. By playing tl1e111 back the girl may hear l1er own 1nistakes. Tl1e chorus is to sing HSalangadou'l and ULift Vp Thine Eyes" with Ruth Proffitt as piano ae- conipanist in the spring niusic contest. The girls l1ave great hopes of placing in the first division. Mr. Thompson has helped these girls iinniensely and the chorus is proud to have him as their director. Fifty-seven BAND Front Row, Left to Right-D. Fathauer, J. Wi ckline, B. Allen, A. Goodwin, M.

Mr. Thompson, during l1is four years of dir- ecting the band, has built it up to the biggest and most advanced band in Macon Coun- ty outside of Decatur. A Macon County lland Festival wasfield at Mt, Zion this year. Five other sclifsols-Mat-mi, Ai-genta, Warrensburg, M aria and lllue Mound participated along with Mt. Zion. 1521011 school sent itS 1110Sf advanced band members to Mt. Zio11 where they practiced all day and then gaye il C011 cert the same night in the high school gym- nasium. Because Mt. Zion had the most advanced band, abgut thirty of 13119 ninety pieces were from Mt. Zion. The band played for the Macon County Teachers' Institute at Millikin Univer- sity, furnished music for the Christmas program, and competed in the District Hand Contest where several members played instrumental solos also. The band also play- ed at same of the basketball games. They played music on the lighter side and marches which helped spirit and provided entertainment.

Holding tight to our new Easter bonnets we streak away with the Reverend NVAYNE HULL leading us in a pray er. Someone tells us that LOWELL HICKENBO TTOM owns a snappy service station out toward Long Creek so we all agree to go out and see him. They forgot to tell lls his co-partner is BOB DAVIS. After much practice Bob is an expert at washing Windshields.

Someone in the crowd begins to complain about a pain they suddenly have acquired De decide that it's best not to fool around with such things so We PUSH I0 rind a doctor.

DON BATEMAN comes to our assistance immediately. Boy, he certainly knows how to do the ju-jit-su doesn't he? Hey, we hear that there's a ball game scheduled for the afternoon. The Brooklyn Dodgers are playing and we know from all the newspapers that Tulvl BURCHAM is their catcher and DICK BLAN- KENBURG is their home-run king. Boy what a game! Xie remember their performances on the Mt. Lion ball diamond. Hey, speaking of diamonds we hear that ROS EMARY JULIUS is prospecting in Africa with her second husband. It seems we're all going a little craky with the heat so what could be better than a ducking in Smeltze'r's pond? What a pleasant sur pmse, a gin lite guard, and itis none other than FAYE LANGLEY. tLet's all drown, the boys shoutlj After all that nonesense, some of us begin to wonier.

Looking a little deeper in her cyystal ball she also informs us that she sees ELOISE W'EST happily married Somewhere in Kentucky. She is teaching her chil- dren to take shorthand before they start to school. After learning the fundamentals she sends them to prgfessobr PAT STOCKS who is president of Lame Brain College in Hades, North Carolina. We try to coax Katherine into telling us about more of our old classmates but we're about broke so we're off on our way.

Once inside we find that she is running an "Old 'Maid's Home". No woman under 70 can live there. NVe're definitely ill-at-ease here, so 'very cordially we make preparations to be on our way. Margaret asks us if we have trouble with mice at anytime and if we have to go see VIDA McRAE. It seems Vida is the first woman to build a successful mouse trap.
