The president is Eldon Wicklineg vice-president, Bill Kruse, and secretary, Dave Britton. The Student Council had charge of the Freshman initiation which was held in September. After a busy day of "polishing shoes and crawling around on the ball held," the tired but happy Freshmen were treated to ice cream. This year the Student Council, advised by Mr. Berns, has had some serious discussion on bus schedules and how to better utilize Home Room periods. A plan was talked about whereby there would be only one Home Room period a week. Therefore, there would be more time for music.

In spite of all we have done our teachers have succeeded in knocking off some of the rough corners and we appreciate very much their efforts and their patience in bearing with us as we struggled through our various courses. In four short years they have changed us from awkward, bashful freshmen into prospective young men and women. During this time we have grown to love our younger school-mates. We do regret leaving them and will remember them always. As we leave we do not wish to say goodbye, but just "so- long" and may we often meet again in the future.

The 1949 Zimlois' 26 JUNIORS Meeting on the second VVednesday of September, 1948, the Class of '50 orga- nized for the school year ahead. Recognizing a good president when they have one, they re-elected jim Clark president, a position he held the previous year. His vice-president was Mary Uverlin, with Roberta VVall as secretary, and Albert Seitz, treasurer. The class named to the Student Council the following people: Shirley llarshbarger, Dave Britton, and Bud Tipsword. Incidentally, Dave was elected secretary of the Student Council. The first major activity of the class was- the presentation of the junior play, "But Fair Tomorrow,'l on November llth and 12th. Direction was by Mr. Boyll who, with the enthusiastic cast, succeeded in catching the audience's attention with an amusing and fast-moving drama of family life. Then on December 3, the ,lunior candidates for llomecoming Queen, Anne Ruth Goodwin and Frances Grinestaff, took part in the coronation of the Home- coming Queen. On january lOth, the class began one of its really big johs4the Curtis Maga- zines Sales- Campaign. This effort saw a mixed response from the class, some working very hard, others doing a little, and a few helping not at all. Total sales reached was 383620, with Virginia Gordon being the high salesman and the recip- ient of the radio awarded for that accomplishment. frenz! row, loft to right-J. Bryant, L. VVendel, D.

Cornshucks were Hying and the Sopliomores were right in the middle. But we came out on top with Nina Baldwin queen and Ruth Harris, Eulah Mae llise, and Janis Stocks as attendants. These Sophs are just naturally hot this year! VVe also came out on top in the Homecoming with pert little Janis Stocks as our queen and Ruth Harris as an attendant. The Seniors came out iirst in the Penny Carnival King and Queen race but all the same we were still in there with Janis Stocks and Dick Dickson as our Sophomore queen and king, and Ruth Harris and Eulah Mae Hise as attendants.

The upperclassmen were bored with school days and felt they needed to show the Freshmen the ropes. The class of '52 rolled eggs with their noses, but never hit the ropes. They were grade HA" for sportsmanship on initiation day ! I saw them later in fall baseball: Grotjan, F. Smith, Cuttill, Jackson, Snyder, and Hardin, with Larry Fonner out in front. I heard them chanting, 'fCasey at the Bat," while they elected Norma Truloek as president, Stanley Grotjan as Vice-President, Helen Myers as Secretary, and Diane Heinz as Treasurer. The Freshmen girls poured tea for their mothers at the F. H. A. Mother and Daughter Tea and acted as Homecoming and Corn Husking queen attendants. They were: Carol Barnett, Diane Heinz, Helen Myers, and .Iacqueline VVoolums, respectively.

The Freshmen split a two-game series with Moweaqua. Despite their deficit in the win column, the "B,s,' outscored their opponents, 712 to 688. Their inability to win the close ones is responsible for their failure to show a better win record. Seven games were lost by three points or less. The "B's" chalked up five victories against a single defeat Ca two-point deci- sion at Nianticj to lead the Cenois Conference Freshmen-Sophomores. Transfers, sickness and graduation to the varsity weakened the squad so that they ended the season with several successive losses. Games for the Season Mt. Zion 39-Argenta 36 Mt.

Those new sight-reading books have really helped everyone. The boys worked up a couple of nuinhers for the Spring Concert. The Spring Concert is planned and worked out by our industrious Mr. Tlioinpson, who wants the parents and friends of our niusie students to know how well or how bad the niusic department really is. .lane lyluirheid is the new accompanist this year. She has been taking piano lessons for seven years and is very good. jane is patient with us when we can't hit the right note and she has to give us the correct tone more than once.

Zion Community lligh School student body, was taken over lock, stock, and barrel by a new crop of budding journal- ists under the guidance of Mr. Hoyll, the new sponsor. Sweeping changes were immediately noticeable in the 1J2l.17Cl'lS make-up. L'ntil this time the S11-M0,r had been without an editorial policy: one was adopted. Lfnder the able editorship of Miss l'atricia Monroe, strides were taken to establish a uniform copy from one edition to the next. l'l1ysical changes in the Sa-Mor included a new weight of paper for the covers, making it easier to mail, and carry: and a definite place and space in the paper for each of the established columns. The Sn-Mor cannot rightly be called a newspaper, nor does it tit the magazine categoryg it strikes somewhere between, being much in content like the famous Sfwcfnfm' of eighteenth century lCngland's Addison and Steele. llowever, newspaper techniques have been employed in the gathering, writing and editing of the material found between Sa-M0r'.v covers. lfach reporter was given a dehnite beat to cover each month. Society was covered by .leunie lieatherstun, who doubled as the staff artist: special events were assigned to lietty liurressg sports were handled by Hill Feather. The reporting staff consisted of Barbara Fonner, Opal Zientara, Maynard llowe, and Shirley Schoonover. llarold Klopfenstein was business manager.

Wells, president, B. Tipsword, vice-president, E. Sefton, treasurer, B. Henry, secretary, and B. Kruse, reporter. The F. F. A. has been again one of the most active organizations in the school. During September, the boys attended a Tree Planting Demonstration, and took part in an ofhcers' leadership training school at Mahomet. In October they went on project tours and made colored slides for the Father and Son Banquet. The annual Cornhusking Contest was held at the farm of Hank Sills. The winners of this contest were Paul Wells and Dale Myers. The Corn- husking Party was held that night with Paul and Dale reigning as co-kings, and Nina Baldwyn as the queen. The party was a great success. Bart Henry and Paul Wells went to Kansas City to attend the National Conven- tion as the delegates of the Chapter. Also the chapter picked up corn to raise funds. The latter part of November a group of the fellows went to Chicago to attend the International Livestock Exposition. The F. F. A. Banquet was held December 7, with all the boys attending. During the basketball season the boys sold pop at the games. This not only quenched the spectators' thirst but also removed the red Figures from the treasurer's book. The Grain and Poultry Teams took part in a contest at Arthur. The Poultry Team won Hrst place and the Grain Team took sixth. This summer the boys plan to spend a few days at Osage, Missouri, as the end of a highly successful year.

Only those Juniors and Seniors who have taken an active part in the school's major dramatic productions, are admitted to membership. To gain membership into the club the student wish- ing to join must have his name submitted to the club in a regular meeting, the club looks over the aspirant's qualifications, and if he meets with the stand- ards of the group he is voted in. Plans were laid to put on some skits and one-act plays at assemblies, but due to the heavy schedule of classes taken by most of the members and the lack of rehearsal time the idea had to be shelved until a way can be found to overcome these "theatrical road blocksf, The retiring officials of the group are: Dorothy Heiserman, president, Lorraine VVeldy, vice-president, Betty Burress, treasurer, and Beverly Boliek, secretary. These offices will be vacated as of May Sl, 1949. Next fall the club will elect a new staff at the first regular meeting.

High points of the year were the lirst softball tournament held by the G. A. A., in which the juniors defeated the Freshmen for first place. Also the annual basketball tournament won by the juniors who received special awards in both events. The Sophoinores took second place. Another event was the selling of stationery held in October, which netted the organization 38500. They joined with the "ZH Club in holding the llome- coming Dance in which all G. A. A. girls were very active. The climax of the year occurred when the animal G. A. A. awards and letters were given. G. A. A. is very proud to announce that for the first time, Second State Awards, the highest award given, will be awarded four Seniors who are eligible for it. Some will receive the familiar "ZH for which they have been working. This has been one of the most active and successful years of the Girls' Athletic Association at Mt. Zion. May there be many more.

SEAL 58 MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS Witnessed by XXX XXXXX X XXXXXXX XX XXXXXX The 1949 Zionoiz: Y flu' l"l" Xllffmig, CLASS PROPH ECY As I gazed into the crystal ball To behold the future's design, For the stalwart lads and the beautiful gals Of the class of '49. I found myself in the midst of the gang At the Silver Jubilee, It was Nineteen Hundred and Seventy-four, And, boy! were we having a spree! There was KIMLER all dressed in satins and silks, And wrapped in a gorgeous mink, Jewels glistened all over her hands and her neck And Chanel-mmmmmmm-what a stink! RUTLEDGE was handsomely dignified- In weskit and striped cravat, It was Doctor Rutledge, if you please, And an obstetrician at that! Jennie FEATHERSTUN had changed her name To something that rhymes with 'fWow," And borne live simply beautiful dolls- The daughters of Maynard HOWE. Maynard, as usual a BTO, Is a broker in feeds and grain, And as he smiled I was glad to see That the Don Juan touch was the same. The man from Mars was coming I knew, He was flying his rocket ship home, It was jason BALL, of widespread fame, And 'twas whispered he'd not be alone. The whisper was right, for there by his side And wearing a diamond tiara, 'Was a girl we all recognized at a glance- None other than Opal ZIENTARA. The hubbub and noise settled down to a whisper, As in walked Preacher STROHL, His fame had spread both far and wide For his writings on saving the soul, His helpmate and guide in this high calling Was our talented and musical MARY, Her flute and Jim's angels constituted a team, To make the devil wary. Dick LAND 'glided upg you could tell by his dress That he was sort of a planter, ,Tis said that when he buries you deep, It's strictly the end of the matter. 60 His sideline is tombstones, and believe me, it pays, There isn't a doubt about it, The reason is that the ledgers and books Are kept by a girl named PROFFITT! The perennial question, "VVhich twin has the Toni P" Has been solved by Joan LAMB, Her beauty shop at Main and Grand Is known as the best in the land. Her husband, Bill FEATHER, Is very well known as a ranking politician, He twiddles his thumbs and wiggles his ears To keep himself in condition. BOBBIT dribbled up in a turtle-necked sweater With a Z that reached to his thigh. "No tux for me," said Terry to meg He's head coach at Boody Y! Betty ALLEN, now Mrs. Wayne GOODWIN, And still plays a neat clarinet. With Cooky's cornet, and four kins coming on, They'll soon organize a sextet. Barbara ALDERSON'S teaching at the old Alma Mater, Still trying to make up her mind Whether she and George HAMMAN should get the knot tied- Or put it off until some other time. Dick CLOW has amazed no one but himself, His sax he had sold long ago, And used the proceeds to go to Hollywood, They say he has made plenty of dough. Dewey GOSNELL'S firm reputation for parking- Snug up to a tree, Has carried him along for twenty-live years, For him life is just a breeze. Bill KRUSE, the master of the metaphor, Was quiet and very sedate, Having recently been elected Class number one Poet Laureate. Well, Hi! Pete COLE-what's this I hear About you and Ida Madge? HRUCKER and Cole"-team superb- Teaching all the latest dance fads." Why there's .lim DAVIS in Navy Blue, With stripes for all to see, The 1949 Zionoiz CLASS PROPHECY K Continued Q The Bulletin says he's an Admiral now- lf-lis Hagship the U.S.S. Teepee! Phyllis ARTZE and Dorothy HEISERMAN, Powers Models from good old New York. Arrived on the arms respectively Of Lem LEH MAN and Harold the KLOP. The latter, two lawyers, successful and rich, llad just won a big case in court. judge MACKLIN presiding-SILLS vs. STEELE, Ruth starred with her quick retorts. Bob I-IEISERMAN is now a Ph.D. conducting a survey, On the "Henning Instincts of a Flea." Patsy BENTON drove up in a long Cadillac That looked just like a frankfurter. She runs a chain of Hot Dog Stands-- From success you cannot divert her! Betty BURRESS arrived a trifle late, Smelling of ether and lysol, Straight from the maternity ward she had come, To be with us at this Jubilee Ball. She'd just delivered a set of twins To Gin HUFFORITS oldest daughter. Imagine it! Ginny's a grandmother now- What good things life has brought her! Rosie BELCHER-Queen of the Skaters, Was happy and covered with smiles, She had finally established a record- Ten million four hundred odd miles! The boss of King Ranch bent low o'er my hand, A master of horse Hesh was he, The Derby was right in the palm of his hand, WICKLINE'S nags placed one, two, three! Beverly BOLIEK came in with a dainty air, her record remained intact. She was still going steady-as Mrs. Bishop. No kidding-it's a fact. The firm of HENRY, that's Bart and LOR- RAINE, together With WELDY and WELLS Do a whale of a business in tractors and stuff, And anything else that sells. MARY JANET came in a new Ford car, She says her kids are all basketball stars! The 1949 Zionois She and Doc are as proud as can be, All five of their boys are wearing a "Z." Advice to the lovelorn is jo TRULOCK'S job: She writes while tending the Sheets, Her prize correspondent, Prospector Bill SMITH, Is in love with his pet parakeet. With a blare of trumpets, the door opened wide, And the class lined up in neat rows, As I raised my eyes someone announced Emmett SEFTON- The King of the Hoboes! We closed around him to welcome him home, And to do such royalty honor, A tin can crown was placed on his head, By our gracious Barbara FONNER. The time was at hand for the welcoming speech By a woman whose principles drove her, To the high estate of Senator- The Honorable Shirley SCHOONOVER. Her secretary, in this high post, Was our own little Annabelle FELTER, Whose job it was to keep Shirley's affairs From becoming helter skelter. The chairman of the local arrangements, Was diminutive jo Ann STILL, She announced refreshments were ready and served, Assisted by husband Bill. And so the roll of the class is called, And found to be complete. Who me? Oh, I'm just Pat MONROE, Your prophet quite discreet, My life has been both full and good With my loved one by my side, The oboe's plaint has vanished And the speeches that once were my pride- Are now delivered to young-uns, O Lord with us abide! Now the crystal ball becomes clouded, And the faces are growing dim- But before the vision disappears, Let's strike up the old school hymn, And revitalize the loyalty That's ours to a high degree, The love of the Class of '49 For Dear Old Mt. Zion High. 61 CONCLUSION Another year has passed and another Mt. Zion year- book is completed. We now put the cover back on the typewriter and start getting much needed rest and sleep again. We have made many friends, worked many hours, and learned many things, but in all we have enjoyed the work. N ow may we say that we are sorry it is so nearly over but yet we hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it for you. TIIE STAFF.
