FOR US STUDENT COURT 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. EXECUTIVE BOARD The Executive Board, composed of the three officers and the home room presidents and senior representatives, was tops in student government. Sponsored by Miss Taylor, the Board held its weekly meetings every Thursday morning. Everything from the repairing of pencil sharp- 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 recorded. 10th GRADE EXECUTIVE BOARD Front Row: Packer, Omohun- dro, Helwig. Second Row: Schrecongost.

The mechanical drawings produced by Mr. Peters' classes appear to be rather intriguing, too. These three faculty members are, no doubt, planning some new event for the Girl Reserves. They are the Misses Frobese, Stephens, and Grove. Tea and relaxation are offered by our home economics teacher, Miss Fish Csecond from lettl. Misses Roegge, Beck, and Thompson are enjoying it with her. "What do we eat today?"

Miss Rightmire "proves" it to Mr. Good- win and Mrs. Horsch. lust about all of us have drawn geometric figures to please these teachers. We owe the benefits of the Wednesday morning devotions via PA. to the ef- forts of Miss Sneary, in charge of music, and Miss Holliday, one of our Latin teachers, who sponsors the pro- grams. THE CREW, TOO "Who shall it be?" Miss Funk, Mr. Mills, cmd Mrs. Gooding debate all pos- sibilities for casting this play. They teach English, public speaking, and Spanish, respectively. Our industrious sponsor of activities, Miss Taylor, tries to sell a hot dog to our English teacher, Mrs. Morgan. Miss McClure, who teaches Latin, seems to be enjoying hers already. How could we get along without our coaches! Mr. Beckert is assisted in keeping the team in good shape by Mr. Swanson Clettl and Mr. Srp Crightl. Miss Patterson and Miss Zahniser in- vestigate the material just removed from their mail boxes. Between the two of them, we should learn some Latin and French. Mollusks and Arthropods, in addition to fish, are observed in these aquaria by Mr. Gilbert, Mrs. Sherman, and the cadet, Miss Keiser. The animals and plants deal with their subject, biology.

Q-ma v Av' ' a -V w oh SCENES ,, n rr The well-blended voices of the devotions chorus helped get us off to a good start on Wednesday mornings. The entire devotions squad worked hard, and their programs showed it. Don't know why our history teachers are so concerned about our learning history. when we're going out to change it all, anyhow. This is what the well-dressed lassie will wear when she finishes it. Note the variety- everything from sportswear to formal attire. Lucky is the boss with one of these to adorn his office. Anyway, these shorthand gals can get your line down pat as fast as you can give it. THROUGH A PORTHOLE Russ, with 27,000 volts at his beck and call, proposes to shock the physics class with this demonstration. Our shop boys were capable of anything from ash trays to class play scenery and sets. Too bad they couldn't turn out a snow plow for that eighteen inches outside. How well the public speaking class remem- bered Leigh's monologue of the football coach's pep talk to his pulped team. If you don't think it was engrossing, look at Bob Ball.

The Mountie eleven opened their season by routing Langley High by a decisive 20-O score: the following week the Westinghouse "Silver Lakers" jolted our local squad with a 13-0 defeat. On the following Friday, Mt. Lebanon fought back to hand the visiting New Kensington eleven a 26-13 setback. Brentwood was next on the list of Mt. Leba- ON THE GRIDIRON non victories, and the score was 27-0. At Clairton, under extremely unfavorable weather conditions, the Mounties outfought and outcharged their opponents through mud and mire but failed to outscore the Clairton team and were defeated 12-2. At Captain Bill Guthrie Monessen the Blue and Gold was over- powered again, 27-12. Returning home, the Mounties vanquished Washington by the score 21-0. In the final game of the season Mt. Lebanon was host to Norwin and swamped the visiting eleven by a 32-0 score. The line of senior lettermen boasted the versatility and top-notch pass-receiving of ends Del Grande, McMasters, and Sheehan: the fast charging and splendid blocking of tackles Stacks and Frye and guards Sim- monds and Hahner: and the fine all-round performance of center McShannic. The back- field featured the speed and deception of Captain Guthrie, Wicks, and Reynolds, the passing and generaliship of Bearer, and the crafty, tricky running of Bush. SCHEDULE Mt.

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.

A look at the record shows just how suc- cessful this season Was.

TRACKSTERS ATTAINED NEW GLORY 1944 TRACK 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 State.

Reynolds, Gey- ser, and this year's co-captains, McKee and B. Reynolds. By far the two best showings of the track team were at the Ambridge Relays and the Washington Invitational. Under the blazing sun, the Mounties literally sweated 'their way to capturing the W.P.I.A.L. relay titles. 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- cisively pulled ahead, two points only sepa- rated the Mounties and their arch-rivals, Clairton. This year's large crowd watched the Mounties capture four of their five home meets, the first complete schedule ever played here. 1944 SCHEDULE Brentwood 31 Clairton 74 Dormont 50 V2 Canonsburg 31 Sewickley 13 V2 Wilkinsburg 53 Washington 25 V2 Norwin 4 V2 RELAYS Dormont 22 Clairton 21 Washington Invitational Clairton 45 V2 Connellsville 67 V2 East Palestin 29 A.

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. 1944 SCHEDULE Mt. L. 10 ---- Langley 4 Mt. L. 4 - Langley 5 Mt. L. 23 West View 2 Mt. L. 3 - Crafton 0 Mt. L. l2 West View 2 Mt.

The gym was packed to Capacity for five straight days with an en- thusiastic throng cheering the contestants on. There was action galore packed into the fights from the beginning to the finals, and the keen competition brought out the true competitive spirit of the boys. The 1945 tournament will be long remembered. Boxing Weight Class Wrestling McCombs 125-135 lbs. Tragesser Langford 135-145 lbs. Hardy Curtin 145-155 lbs. Donnelly Lowery 155-165 lbs.

"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. Sad-Sacks, Rip-Snorters, Roger, Limeys, R. A. F., Mac's Muscle Women, Hubba Hubba, Stars, Duffy's Tavern, Gravel Gerties, Ishka- bibble, Lazy Lizzies, and the more conserva- tive Navy, Michigan, Notre Dame, Southern Cal., Bucknell, and Bethany. Miss Billingsley certainly rates a "salute" from all the girls for her grand sportsman- ship in gym classes and after school. She was always a willing listener and counselor. as proven by the large number of girls in her office before and after school. Also a hearty cheer for the G.A.A. Council for all they did in officiating and scheduling the sports and planning other activities. They sponsored the play-day, which resulted in a joyful afternoon. That day was Ianuary ll. There were one hundred twenty-five Lebo Lassies, divided into ten teams depicting sports equipment. It was a great day at the "Gymboree!" As usual the Council had their many good times, such as swimming parties and the annual picnic in the spring. Soccer started off with a bang, but be- cause of the condition of the field the tourna- ON DECK FOR GOOD TIMES ment could not continue. Ohio State, cap- tained by Sue Iackson, and Duffy's Tavern, captained by Gerry Mulson, were the two 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- sett in the finals. Basketball, as usual, led the sports pa- rade. Since there were over two hundred twenty-five girls that signed up, seniors were chosen to captain the teams also. Hubba Hubba, captained by Gretchen Lorentz, came out on top by overpowering Duffy's Tavern in their final game. Gravel Gerties. captained by Ella Baum, and Bucknell, cap- tained by lane Alexander, were tied for sec- ond place. Hats off to the sophomores all- star team! They did a fine job in defeating the freshmen. In an exhibition game spon- sored by the G.A.A., Duffy's Tavern re- gained its prestige by defeating Hubba Hub- ba, 14-6. The highly popular volleyball tourna- ments and mushball games opened the spring semester. Spring fever did not inter- fere with our "mighty" ball teams. Now, as another school year draws to a close and another year of G.A.A. ends, the seniors turn their bows and arrows over to the juniors: and the sophomores say, "Hope you're around next year!"

Well rightly so, for that small key represents a lot of work accomplished in various extra-curricu- lar activities. A student must earn ninety 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 tree embossed on it and the initials Mt. L. The guard can be attached to this key when you receive it.

OUR GROUPS WERE CITED FOR Girl Reserves Ahoy Mates! The Girl Reserves have landed. After a year long voyage on the 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- serve groups went "full speed ahead" to raise one hundred dollars for the Armed Service Committee and collected one hun- dred seventy-five dollars for a Red Cross donation. 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. Top: Gladdy Lou Miller invites Bob Callahan to the G.

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE Hi-Y Under the able leadership of Mr. Ruth, the Hi-Y progressed rapidly during the past year. With Harry Nelson and Iohn Kountz as presidents, the club was rebuilt from a small nucleus of old members to one of consider- able number. The club's most noted accomplishment was the collection of two hundred fifty dol- lars to provide recreational equipment for an L. S. T. TRAILBLAZERS The Trailblazers, a semi-social club, in- cluded in its activities this year a Goodwill Drive and the donation of gifts at Christmas to wounded war veterans and to the Chil- dren's Hospital.

THE SHIP'S BAND AND ORCHESTRA BAND 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 at the right time: but when everyone played 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 it did! The play unfolded the story of a boy's unselfish love for the Christ Child and his true Christmas spirit, which made the chimes ring. 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 Easter assemblies. SENIORS WENT OVERBOARD CAPTAIN APPLEIACK "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.

Cud, Maryellen, and Dick found the treasure rice. Phil, Evelyn, and Ioy, the make-up committee, put a paint job on Thelma. Aunt Agatha came down stairs in pin curls and cold cream to inquire about the commotion. Bobbie fell in a melodramatic taint. For Borolsky tCyl this was all in the line of duty. FOR CLASS PLAYS DOUBLE DOOR 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.

Lebanon Log The voyage is over at last as the Good Ship Lebanon puts into port, a bit battered by rough seas, it's true, but with the Blue and Gold still flying. The training we received at the hands of our officers proved valuable. as we were commended for our accomplishments in the fields of scholarships, sports, and activities. We have tried to make this log book a true record of our cruise on the high seas of Good-fellowship and Learning. At times it was rough sailing, and often the crew threat- ened mutiny: but under such experienced navigators as Hoyt and Peggy we soon got our sea-legs. We go ashore reluctantly, remembering exciting games with those landlubbers, Dor- mont and Brentwood, the shaking timbers during semester test week, and the thrill of pride as we walked down the gangplank at Senior Assembly. Ahead lie uncharted waters, but we are determined to meet each new challenge bravely, proving our right to be called "able seamen." LOG STAFF Literary Staff. seated: Speidel, Frank, McConnell, Iones.
