We entered the portals of M. T. H. S. as a class of 178. "Tom Sawyer" was presented in assembly by the 7-1 homeroom. Quite a few of us took part in the operetta, "White Gypsy," with our own Joyce Shuker as the star. The seventh grade history classes visited the Reading Museum. Eighth Grade-One of our favorite memories of this year is the party at which we made our own ice cream and everyone ate to his heart's content. "Dickens' Christmas Carol" was presented in assembly by the eighth grade English classes. At the close of the year, the American Legion awards were presented to James Lantz and Patricia Hale. Ninth Grade-Freshmen! Another busy year of rounding out our education. We greeted the nonfresident students at the beginning of this year, who increased our class total to 217. During this year we made the difficult decision as to what courses we would follow. Members of the class participated in County Chorus for the hrst time. Susan Phillips received the award for the outstanding girl in ninth grade. 'Tenth Grade-Ah! at last Sophomores with the dreaded Freshman year over. The class was oflicially organized. Ofiicers: President, Rodney Shipeg Vice President, George Bosoldg Secretary, Joyce Shuker, Treasurer, Paul Griiiith. The Muhls won their third Berks Scholastic Conference Basketball Champion' ship by defeating Robesonia, with 'LSoph" Rodney Shipe assisting. Cn March 9 the operetta, "The Waltz Dream," was presented with our Pat Hale a member of the cast and many class members in the chorus. On March 15 we danced to the music of Henry Gass's Orchestra at our "Soph Hop." Patricia Hale and Peter DeMarco were chosen the outstanding students of our class. Eleventh Grade-We knew we had "arrived" with the possession of our class pins and our steel grey and kelly green class hats. Our class officers were elected: President, Rodney Shipeg Vice President, Charles Wellerg Secretary, Margaret Chafeyg Treasurer, Robert Artz. Red roses were chosen as our official flower. During the annual Honor Society program, which was held February 27, 1948, eight members of our class were inducted into this organization. On April 29 and 30 the Junior Class play, 'LA Case of Springtime," was presented to the public with Loring Boeshore portraying the leading character. To end the activities of our Junior year, our Prom was held on May 29 with Jack Kenny's Orchestra supplying the music. Peter DeMarco and Joyce Shuker were chosen the outstanding members of the eleventh grade. Twelfth G'radeWOur last year of high school with its thrilling activities. Senior Class ofhcers were elected: President, George Bosoldg Vice President, Rodney Shipe, Secretary, Margaret Chafeyg Treasurer, Robert Artz. We became the proud owners of class rings. Early in the year plans were made to assemble our yearbook, with the thought in mind of making it the finest ever published. On November 18 and 19 we presented our class play, "Brother Goose," which played to capacity houses. January 15, 1949, will long be remembered as the date of the election of William Long as President of Student Council for his second term. Through the efforts of our class, a skating party for the entire school was held on March 31 at Holland's Skateland. Additional class members were inducted into Honor Society on April 1. On May 21 we journeyed to Annapolis, Maryland, via special train and boat. This trip was brought about through the kind invitation of the senior class of Reading High School to join them. Permission was granted by the administration to hold the first JuniorfSenior Prom off the campus. This unprecedented event was held on June 4 at Holland's Skateland. Our high school careers were brought to a close with Baccalaureate Service on June 5 and Commencement on June 9 and 10. l43l 4 I V L 1 i i I I Umierclczssm en Those who are striving to step into our shoes. . .the school year was off "with a bang". . .even the seniors felt lost in the newly decorated school. . . bewildered seventh graders gradually became accustomed to passing classes . . .a bit over enthusiastic. . .7-1 presented the Easter pageant in assembly . . .braved the physical exams along with the ninth and eleventh graders. . . and tenth and twelfth grades, what did you think of the T.
