MUHLTOHI published by CLASS OF 1952 MUHLENBERG TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL LAURELDALE, PENNSYLVANIA Volume X MUHLENSERQ Coavuvuumsw LHBRARY Foreword 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 be rugged." 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 mountain climb. We hope that this book will recall pleasant memories of the friendships and experiences shared during our educational trek at Muhlenberg. Ever Upward 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. Dedication 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 and admiration. Foculfy 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 .1 1 , , - as 2. ii T? .4 if 'EE 5 5 ig X 5.2 hz, SX G 3 SE if Seated: Seyfert, Cox, Boyer, Trout, Melick, Stoudt. -Standing: Crumbling, Rentschler, Rothermel.

Levan. l25ll Underclossmen 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 relative ease. As the summit is approached, we realize that its significance is great only because of the climb before it. New to the way of mastering a tas How can we meet what requirements as 7 By setting our purpose firmly in view Our climb improves as the years ensue l26l 95 5 3 'Q i !

Activities 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 ahead. 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 ll38l FIRST Row, left to right: L.

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 end, but divides into two distinct paths. On the one hand there is the guided tour of further educational journeys, while on the other, we will venture forth upon a vocational trek, enlightened by the lamp of experience. 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 rocky mountainside. 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 ll72ll A DAVID ADAMS Academic Dave . . . mischievous, witty . . . studies diligently??? . . . partftime employee at Ed Lebo's Texaco Station . . . expert hunter and trapper . . . interested in modified cars . . . engages in winter sports . . . found with Butch during school hours . . . will become a machinist at Wyomissing Polytech.

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. A parton list of more than 1100 for this play topped all previous records. We sported our brand new class sweaters of blue and white. Lee Williams was elected class vicefpresidentg the other officers remained the same. In February we ate in our brand new cafeteria for the first time. Six juniors were inducted into National Honor Society. Mary Lee Pearah and Ronald Clouser received the Junior Woman's Club awards. An enjoyable june 12 was spent at the Reading CountryClub dancing to the music of Hank Hoffman at our juniorfSenior Prom. Shirley Becker was proclaimed junior Prom Queen. Seniors at last, we changed the class ring design using a blue stone and larger numerals. We slaved away on our bigger, more complete yearbook. Our romantic class play, "Mother Is a Freshman," was presented November 29 and December 1. A delightful evening was spent dancing to the music of Saxy Shollenberger at the juniorfSenior Prom. Our commencement pageant, depicting that Berks County is best, marked the close of our sixfyear trek at Muhlenberg Township High School.
