In this time countless numbers of students have passed through its portals. The membership of the faculty has gradually increased in size and many onceffamiliar faces have been replaced by those of newcomers. However, there is always a bit of the old retained with the new, and we believe that even the members of the original student body will find within these pages echoes of their own school careers and fulfillment of cherished dreams. The original -building was enlarged by the addition of a wing in 1930, and now construction has been started on another to provide further shop facilities and the longfawaited cafeteria. In years when no year books commemorate the happenings, something is lost. Our purpose then, is to prevent such a lapse for 1950, the silver anniversary of the school. May this book, which is now little more than paper filled with pictures, summaries, and the like, increase in value a hundredffold as time slips through the hourfglasses of our lives. As often as you open the covers of this book to leaf at random o'er its contents, may each page revive pleasant thoughts and cherished memories of the student body, faculty, administration, the Class of '50 .... and Muhlenberg. Table of Confenfs DEDICATICN ADMINISTRATION SENIORS CLASSES ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS Dedication We, the Class of 1950, in our own behalf and in the name of those who have preceded us, respectfully dedicate this eighth volume of the Muhltohi to Miss Edith E.

The scope for reminiscing is very wide, but there are many things which only the individf ual will remember. Briefly scanning 1944, our "Greenie" year-what a transition for us! No longer were there "recess periods," and we changed classrooms every hour. Why, we were the most important people on the scene! Some of us didn't fare so Well in the Treasure Hunt at the Reading Museum. Yes, this was a big year, but many found more important events in store. We, as historically minded eighthfgraders, traveled to Gettysburg and enjoyed a day of exploration, chaperoned by Miss Willits, Miss Moyer, and lvlrs. Ramsay. Joyce Kurzweg and James Brokenshire were the recipients of the American Legion Awards. After selecting courses for ninth grade, many found new and more difficult books to carry home. Many of us made civics notebooks and the academic students made Latin projects. New faces appeared on the scenes as our class increased due to the enrollment of nonfresidents. What a time we had at our class Christmas party! The Senior Woman's Club Awards to freshmen went to Joyce Kurtz and James Brokenshire. Our class was organized in tenth grade with Richard Miller, president, and Edward Evans, Ardell Wagner, and Gerald Gilbert, vicefpresident, secretary, and treasurer, respectively. Several of the more talented songsters of the class were admitted to Mixed Chorus. A goodly number of our male classmates joined Hi-Y. "Soph" girls square danced for the May Day program. The "Soph Hop" proved to be quite successful. The outstanding girl and boy of this year were Joyce Kurtz and Richard Miller, who received the Maidencreek Hosiery Company Awards. Juniors-from the beginning of the year we looked forward to a prom, which later proved successful when we combined with the seniors to hold it at Holland's. journal' istically-minded juniors squeezed a period of writing into their schedules. "We Shook The Family Tree," the class play, brought future dramatists into the lime'ight. James Brokenshire was elected vicefpresident and later, president of Student Council. Five boys and one girl were inducted into Honor Society. Eleventh grade awards were received by Edward Evans and jean Kurtyka from the Junior Woman's Club. At last we were seniors! Plans progressed for a yearbook. "Your Time Is Up" gave senior Shams" a chance to demonstrate their acting abilities. Our Carnival Dance was terrific. National Honor Society inducted eleven seniors. Will we ever forget the class trip, the senior prom, and all the other events in this, our senior year-the silver anniversary of the school?
