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.

In J2lHl12ll'y, after returning from Clll'iStl11ZlS vacation, the class started their
21111111111 nmgzizine sale. Mr. Vnywood also sponsored this activity with Betty Bur-

Un January 30 the annual penny carnival was held. The sponsor of this occa-
sion was Mr. Ross. Joan Lamb represent ed the junior class as queen candidate with
Pete Cole as king candidate. Lorraine Wfeldy and Jo Anne Still were queen attend-
ants. However, the freshmen candidates wen out and reigned over the carnival. The
highlight ofthe evening was the eornnation of the king and queen. Last years king
and queen, Don XVells and Jean Syfert, re turned to crown the new king and queen.
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

And so it's true-we're sophoniores already! My but we must be smart. All
through this year we'Ve been busy as wood chucks trying to make the most of the year
-and we did it too! 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. F, A. brings up the corn husking contest--our participants-Fulte and Dy-
er shocked their fingers to the cob. XYell-they may not have placed high in the
contest, but watt-li the corn fly next year!

But, let us tell you more. Athletics and its organizations, G. A. A. and "Z"
club, included lilillly sophoniores too. Cla rk and llritton gave fine exhibitions of ball
playing with the first team this year, while we practically had a second team within
the class with Seitz, Hull, Grotjan, McRae and Hogan ttsuiting up". In the spring
and fall of the year, we found Hull, lirittn, Clark, Grotjan, Snyder and Hogan.

Illll sure Mr. Thompson would say, "I couldn't have done without them", if'
you asked him it the sophs contributed to band and chorus.
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. They placed second when the final
votes were counted.
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. Now do you understand why the sophomores
had a successful year?

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

by the sophomores who received special awards. The juniors then led the way to sec-
ond place, with the seniors third and freshmen fourth.
The climax is reached at the end of the year with i4Awards" day. All efforts
are so worthwhile when one is awarded a HZ" or some other equally important
award. A select few will wear the state "I" for tl1e first time around Mt. Zion, -

-ness Managerg B. Cordtz, Cartoonistg and a staff of reporters and typists.
During the second semester, 3, different staff published each issue. This method passed the
jobs around and gave more students a chance to be C11 the staff. The editors during the second semes-
ter were L. Newberry, D. Fathauer, J. Traughber and D. Blankenburg.
The Sa-Mor is issued at the end of each mo nh and it contains sports news, editorials, feautres,
jokes, school news, and other small columns. The I-lunzni Antics and the Inquiring Reporter were
standard columns during. the first semester. Alum ni Antics, written by P. Stocks, kept readers in-
formed on the alumni, and the Inquiring Reporter, written by J. Syfert was -a number of opinions or
'answers to a question by different students. Prob ably the biggest attraction to.the student body was
the famous Knickerbocker, which revealed the latest romances. D. Blankenburg's sports page kept
readers well informed as to Mt. Zion's sports participation, and gave exact box scores, tournament re-
sults and standings. V ' ' i A

The Mt. Zlilll High School Band has continued to improve and was better this
year tliifn it l1ad been for many years. 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.
