Every ship needs some able-bodied seamen
to see that law and order prevail and wrong
doers are dealt with. Here's where the Student
Court carried out its job. The Court's task was
merely to give advice and guidance to its fel-
low seamen. This it did in shipshape fashion,
too. The idea of having mates judge their fel-
low mates has proven to be a good one, as
the culprits respect judgment passed on from
those among their own ranks. As the end of
the voyage drew near, the eight members of
the Court closed the book, well pleased with
the actions of everyone on board ship.
The Executive Board, composed of the three
officers and the home room presidents and
senior representatives, was tops in student
Sponsored by Miss Taylor, the Board held
its weekly meetings every Thursday morning.

eners to the changing of the seating arrange-
ment in the cafeteria was taken care of. The
crew couldn't have had two finer skippers than
George Kraemer and Brad Richardson, Execu-
tive Board presidents for the fall and spring
semesters, respectively. At the beginning of the
voyage the crew started out "full speed ahead"
and let nothing steer them off course. Their
perseverance was rewarded when 'their desti-
nation was reached and a successful voyage

CAGERS PACKED BLEACHERS
Coach "Speed" Clark's comment on this
year's court men is as follows: "I would like
to compliment personally the members of
this year's basketball team on the following
points: ill your fine record of seventeen vic-
tories and five defeats: C23 your loyalty to
school, team, and coach throughout a long
season: and C35 your dogged determination
and will to Win every game.
"Of course we did not win every game,
but I am sure I am talking for the team when
I say we had the satisfaction of knowing we
played with everything we had. When we
lost we were ready to admit defeat to a bet-
ter team-no favors asked during the game,
no alibis afterward. That to my mind is the
trade mark with which future Mt. Lebanon
teams will be branded."
The players on this year's team fought
hard to achieve the highest goal attainable.
The return of three lettermen from last
year's quintet, which compiled a record of
thirteen won and nine lost, formed the foun-
dation for a much improved team. Pre-sea-
son games proved tough, but they lost only
two of these contests. The first half of section
play went along neck and neck until we
met Brentwood on their court. The team lost

lost three, and tied one.
Coach Ditty coached the team, which con-
sisted of Kunkle, Langford, Bead, Lewan-

TRACKSTERS ATTAINED NEW GLORY
Like old man river, the Mounty track team
rolled up another successful season in which
the "spiked athletes" carved their name
third on the 1944 W.P.I.A.L. track records.
Led once again by Don Mollenauer, the
tracksters showed many outstanding indi-
viduals. The greatest was Dick Toler, co-
captain, who at the W.P.I.A.L. championship
meet captured first place in the half-mile
run. Toler, a consistent winner all year, fin-
ished second in the P.I.A.A. meet at Penn

team were at the Ambridge Relays and the

Smarting from a surprise defeat inflicted
upon them by Clairton, the Blue Devils
scored heavily in the running events and
gained a startling victory.
Struggling violently to gain permanently
the Washington Invitation Trophy, which
must be won three years in succession to be
kept, the Mt. Lebonites captured first place
from a highly contested field. No fighting
spirit in Mt. Lebo has ever equaled that of
those who were playing to bring home the
"bacon." Until the very last, when we de-

STRONG TEAM RETAINED SECTION I TITLE
BASEBALL - 1944
Coach Clark's comment-"ln winning the
sectional title for the second straight year,
Mt. Lebanon had, in my humble opinion, the
best baseball team in her history and one
that will be mighty hard to duplicate in fu-
ture years. To begin with, we had an ex-
perienced letterman for every position plus
a good crop of first year men and second
stringers. In fact, so good were our prospects
that I have often wondered whether we
reached the full limit of our possibilities. I
hope we didn't throw away the mould from
which that team was made."
Completing one of the most successful
seasons in the school's baseball history, Mt.
Lebanon's record was eight games won and
two lost, capturing the Section I title for the
second successive year.
The 1944 season started with Langley, the
city champions. The Mounties took the first
game 10-4, losing the second 5-4. The sec-
tional schedule followed, Mt. Lebanon win-
ning all games played with West View,
Crafton, and Baldwin. In the elimination
series the Blue Devils defeated Findlay 7-l,
but lost to a strong Aliquippa team 7-O.
The pitching staff sparkled with fine hurl-
ing by Wardwell, Bush, and Rumberger. Del
Grande, McMaster, and McDaniel capably
handled the catching chores. The clever-
fielding and hard-hitting infield consisted of
Vollmer, Callahan, McShannic, and Corbett.
with the ball-hawks, Thomas, Williams, and
Steliotes in the outfield. Efficient substitutes
were B. Bearer, Frye, Lowery, and Ball.

the keen competition brought out the true
competitive spirit of the boys. The 1945
tournament will be long remembered.

A.A. CALLED MATES
"Fall in!" "Right face!" "March-l, 2, 3,
41" "Down the center in six!" These were all
familiar commands given in gym class.
"Don't do any more than twenty knee-
bends!" Some unfortunate person always
missed this number and went on to do an
extra thirty. One consolation was that the
railings were constructed sturdily so one
could lean on them going up and down the
stairs. Incidents like this never ceased and
kept our gym classes lively at all times.
The Girls' Athletic Association surpassed
last year's membership to make it the great-
est in five years!
Never before had the team captains be-
stowed such titles on their teams-Oshkosh.

top teams, winning all games.
Great enthusiasm was shown toward
minor sports, with over two hundred girls
signing up. Because of weather conditions
the seniors did not have the opportunity to
finish their archery tournament. In deck ten-
nis, Ella Baum and Gerry Mulson came out
on top after a hard contest with Sue Jackson
and Margie Hathaway. Lucille Omohundro
and Ioanne Emery were the proud winners
of the sophomores' bandminton matches
after defeating Peggy Taylor and Lois Hog-

Basketball, as usual, led the sports pa-

chosen to captain the teams also. Hubba

so, for that small key represents a lot of
work accomplished in various extra-curricu-

activities points to be entitled to wear the
Activities Key. Some earn these necessary
points by singing in the choral programs put
on by the school: others earn theirs through
faithful service on various committees and
squads, selling candy or planning devo-
tional programs or any of the many activi-
ties carried on by the school. Several Leba-
nonites in each class work hard and earn
this fitting reward in their junior year. Others
go on and earn one hundred ten additional
points that they may receive the Activities
Guard to go with their Key. The key consists
of a black background with a gold cedar

seas they have put into port. This wasn't a
crew of pirates, however, for they defended
the poor and oppressed. The three Girl Re-

raise one hundred dollars for the Armed
Service Committee and collected one hun-
dred seventy-five dollars for a Red Cross
It wasn't all work and no play. In the so-
cial line the Beta Night Club, featuring
"Point Ciana Hathaway," was tops: and
our week-end at camp will long be remem-
bered by everyone.
Everyone went overboard for the two
groovy dances, "The Star Spangled Special"
and "The Kurfew Kouples," which were
sponsored by the three clubs. All the "swab
jockeys" could be seen swabbing the decks:
but don't get us wrong, folks, for it was with
their feet to the mellow beat of a solid tune.
Our programs dealing with "Know Others,"
"Know Yourself," and "Know Your Career"
furnished many interesting meetings as well
as lots of fun.

THE SHIP'S BAND AND ORCHESTRA
Did you hear some mighty queer sounds
coming from the band room three days a
week? We did. The band hadn't quite be-
come used to being surrounded by four
walls, a floor, and a ceiling after so much
marching outside. Take, for instance, those
practices in spirals, which were sometimes
rather dangerous: the majorette whistled for
a halt: the drowsy trombone player forgot
to stop and ran his "slush pump" into the
guy in front of him: thus we found a whole
row of unconscious victims lying on the
ground. See what we mean? Right in the
middle of a very moving overture the clar-
inets gave with an unusual trill-anything
to add to the confusion. The drummers,
when "off duty", enjoyed relaxing Ca bit too
MAIORETTES noisilyl in one corner of the room. The
French horns and basses had no little
trouble getting their "oompah-oompah's" in

the same tune at the same time, we really
heard some swell music from our band.

THERE WAS GOOD ENTERTAINMENT, TOO
Under the able direction of Miss Funk,
"Why The Chimes Rang," a one act play by
Elizabeth McFadden, was presented for the
annual Christmas program. Although handi-
capped by a raging snow storm, which
made it impossible for all members of both
the cast and chorus to attend the last few
rehearsals, "the show had to go on." And
The play unfolded the story of a boy's
unselfish love for the Christ Child and his
true Christmas spirit, which made the chimes
The cast included C. Reichblum, C. Schu-
mann, B. Parke, A. Fulton, and G. Bergman.
Pantomime roles were capably handled by
L. Bush, A. Roth, I. Monticello, B. Barrett, I.
Vaux, I. Didrichson, and B. Summers. Miss
Sneary's choral group sang the beautiful
songs in real Christmas spirit.
Mount Lebanon has reason to be proud
of its fine choruses under the direction of
Miss Sneary. The four-part harmony heard
on our devotional programs was produced
by the Wednesday Morning Chorus, and
you may have seen some of the members
of the third and sixth period choruses prac-
ticing for their solos with Mina Belle Packer
or Barbara Cutler.
A group of early morning warblers was
the Triple Trio, Whose fame was so far-
spread that they were invited to sing at
several outside affairs, besides singing at
the Senior Tea, Senior Assembly, and Com'
mencement. These groups all joined together
to furnish the music at the Christmas and
SENIORS WENT OVERBOARD
"Captain Applejack", by Walter Hackett, was orig-
inally produced in New York in 1921: but December
l, 1944, will always remain a more impressive date in
our minds, for it was then that the Ianuary Class rein-
acted this sensational drama.
Tired of the life he has lived, Captain Ambrose Ap-
plejack longs for adventure, getting more than he bar-
gains for when buried treasure, mystery, murder, and
romance all enter his life.
We'll always remember the night Cy promised to
chauffeur Mr. Mills to rehearsal in return for the use
of his tux-Cy ran out of gas and Mr. Mills, for the first
time in his life, arrived late for practice-and the
catchy tune Cud sang in his dream, also Bobbie's
realistic faint: but there was Work as Well as fun. Still
the cast felt Well compensated for many long, hard
hours when their performance met with an apprecia-
tive response from the audience.

FOR CLASS PLAYS
The class of '45 successfully presented the melo-
drama, "Double Door", a psychological mystery deal-
ing with the intense struggles carried on by wealthy
Victoria Van Bret to dominate her sister and half-
brother. In preparation, the two casts rolled up their
sleeves for seven weeks of intensive rehearsal. At first
all hands were pretty green: but, as time passed, the
characters really began to take forrn.
Some of the casts' lighter moments were when Allan
Johnston had trouble carrying Carol Kunz in his arms
and when Bob Callahan and Doris Becker played the
loving couple. The part of timid, nervous Caroline was
so well acted that the audience really felt sorry for
her. None of the cast will forget detective Dave
Stewardhhe was a character on stage and off.
