CLASS OF 1952
MUHLENBERG TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
MUHLENSERQ Coavuvuumsw LHBRARY
As we go through life, we meet many
seemingly insurmountable obstacles which must
be overcome. Realizing this, we, the Class of
'52 chose as our motto "Climb, though the rocks
Through our yearbook we will strive to
illustrate the part that high school plays in the
climb toward our goal. In order to do this, we
have likened our six years at Muhlenberg to a
We hope that this book will recall pleasant
memories of the friendships and experiences
shared during our educational trek at Muhlenberg.
The climb of life is an arduous climb,
A road of struggles to a goal sublime.
To help us in our quest for truth,
Are those who teach and guide our youth.
New to the way of mastering a task,
How can we meet what requirements ask?
By setting our purpose firmly in view,
Our climb improves as the years ensue.
No matter how steep and trying the trail,
A spirit of fellowship must always prevail,
Working together is the aim of the plan
That God has designed in the heart of Maxi.
At last we reach our first great peak,
While new hills arise for us now to seek.
With all that we've learned on this happy climb
Even greater horizons may be ours in time.
We, the Class of 1952, dedicate this
book to the faculty members of Muhlenberg
Township High School who have, in turn,
dedicated themselves to the development of
youth. Drawing an analogy between life and
a mountain climb has made us realize the imf
portance of guides. What they have given us is
not found in a history book or a geometry
proposition, but in the guidance and companf
ionship of friends. We hope that this
dedication will express to them our respect
Our Faculty, who have devoted themselves to helping young
people gain greater heights, guide us over the difliculties in the path
of learning, and help us to appreciate the finer milestones along the trail.
Knowing the trail from previous experiences, they aid us in finding our
way. They spend long hours on the trail, teaching us to recognize and
overcome the obstacles.
To divert us from the everyfday routine of the journey, they
advise us in our recreational activities. They develop in us a sense of
determining the right route. Periodically they test our mental growth
and abilities. Our guides vary in their skills and abilities, and by coming
in contact with most of them, we develop in all phases of life's climb.
There are not words enough to tell everything that our guides
have done for us. As We continue our perpetual climb, we should
like to thank them for their guidance, Wisdom, and tolerance.
The climb of life is an arduous clrmb
A road of struggles to a goal sublime
To help us in our quest or truth
Are those who teach and guide our youth

just as mountain climbers, beginning their ascent, often conf
sider the summit as the only significant factor, so we often think of
our senior year and graduation as the only incentive to continue onward
in school. After several hours of plodding, mountaineers realize that
they must not concentrate all attention on the summit because they
are constantly faced with immediate obstacles that must be conquered.
As they continue, the summit remains as the goal, but the climb
becomes the challenge. Some of us realize this already in seventh grade-
others never seem to. It is this latter group that becomes discouraged
and uninterested and soon falls by the Wayside.
Gradually, as we learn to overcome more of our everyday problems,
the journey becomes easier. Less effort is required to progress and more
can be devoted to diversions. Even though rocks are more rugged
in senior high than junior, experienced climbers surmount them with
As the summit is approached, we realize that its significance
is great only because of the climb before it.

As we climb this first mountain in the range of life we pause
now and then for relaxation.
The ways in which we do this are as diversified as our person'
alities. We may prefer music, service, marching, dramatics, writing,
cheerleading, sports, or debating. Each of these diversions does its
part to help us along the trail of life.
The fellowship gained here is a valuable part of our progressg it
helps us to understand our fellow travelers. Leaders, who help us over
the rough spots, were developed here. The fine traits of character
that these activities form strengthen us so that we can conquer the
rugged rocks of life.
By alternating work with relaxation and fellowship, we make our
climb more enjoyable and better prepare ourselves to attain the summits
As mountain climbers bind themselves together with a rope, using
team work to attain a common goal, we are also bound together in spirit
as we collaborate to achieve success in our ventures. An indispenf
sable part of our training is learning to develop ourselves as part of
a unit as well as individuals.
No matter how steep and trying the trail
A spirit of fellowship must always prevail
Working together is the aim of the plan
That God has designed in the heart of Man

Through constant cooperation and effort, we have achieved this
height. It has been a long, difficult journey - these twelve years, and
we feel that at last we have reached our ultimate goal.
But looking farther into the distance, there are many more levels,
rockier and higher, which await to be scaled. Here, the trail does not

guided tour of further educational journeys, while on the other, we

We know that short cuts lead only to the deep valleys below
instead of making goals loom closer. Staying within the boundaries
of the trail, we will eventually progress higher and higher on the
We must always be aware of the heights beyond, and "Climb
Though The Rocks Be Rugged."
At last we reach our first great peak,
While new hills arise for us now to seek
With all that we've learned on this happy climb
Even greater horizons may be ours in time

As we leave the first level in life's climb, we recall our sixfyear journey at Muhlenberg Township
We entered seventh grade in 1946, 151 strong. Except for one whole section's getting lost, we soon
became adjusted to the many bells, rooms, halls, teachers and no recesses. Jacquelin Martin and Lois
Hughes were the winners of the treasure hunt at the Reading Museum. We were the first seventh
graders to send delegates to our new Student Council. Helen Schoener and Ronald Clouser were
chosen for the Empire Steel awards.
In eighth grade, many of us took part in the operetta, "Slip of the Slipper." We all gave vocational
reports in guidance class - how our interests have changed! Mary Lee Pearah and Ronald Clouser
were the recipients of the American Legion prizes.
Our freshman year brought five major class periods, civics notebooks, and Latin projects. Fifteen
of us participated in junior High County Chorus at Kutztown High School. The Senior Woman's
Club awards were presented to Mary Lee Pearah and Ronald Clouser.
In tenth grade, we were officially organized as a class. Oliicers were Paul Hetrich, president,
Harold Stotz, vicefpresidentg Lolita Bunnell, secretary, and Janice Yoh, treasurer. Our class hats were
proudly displayed in and out of school. Our first dance, "Soph Hop," was successfully staged April 15
amid colorful balloons and flowers. Naureen Landis was crowned queen of this event. Helen Schoener
and Paul Hetrich received the Maidencreek Hosiery prizes. A trip to Riverview Beach brought this
year to an enjoyable close.
Now juniors, we presented the comedy, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," March 15 and 16.
