IORS of MUNCY HIGH SCHO REW RD i' 'k ir This issue of the CANUSARAGO, made possible by the seniors and undergraduates of Muncy, is an expression of our desire to preserve for our students and renew for our graduates their school day memories. In these pages you will find your fun, your sorrows, your Work, and your play. These are the memories you wish to keep. We sincerely hope that these pages will succeed in recalling to you the real spirit of Muncy High School. MEANING OF CAN SARAGO "Canusarago,' was an aboriginal name for what is now called Muncy Creek and is the earliest name preserved and handed down to us on good authority. In 1737, Conrad Weiser, the celebrated Indian interpreter and guide, reported this name as it was pronouncd by the Indians of his generation. In proper interpretation of the syllables of the Iroquoian dialect, he had the assistance of the Iroquois chief, Shikellimy, who was with him at the time. Weiser's journal was written in German and later translated by Dr. Muhlenburg, a man of great learning and knowledge of Indian languages. It then found its way into Schoolcraft's great Work and throughout its many editions, the spelling of Canusarago still conforms to that given above. In 1755, Weiser again passed this way and upon reaching the mouth of what is now Muncy Creek, he again calls it Canusarago and writes in his journal: "And as we passed Canusarago, where a town now is," and again, speaking of the inhabitants, "They are chiefly Showones fShawaneesj and Chickasaws. There are about 20 men in the town when they are all at home." Evidently upon his first visit, the village-site on the rock to the north of the Creek's mouth had been unoccupied. It was now tenanted by a mixed population from various roving tribes. While the name of this town in Weiser's day was Iroquoian Qindicating a previous outpost settlementj it doubtless was originally a Susquehannock town with a name now lost to us. The quotation above is dwelt upon as the term Canusarago, in the Iroquois lan- guage, signifies a "Town on a Rock or a high place. Those acquainted with the character and lay of the land at "the point" will readily see the application of this description. The deduction is, that the Iroquoian town on this rocky height gave its own name to the creek. In 1768, the first surveys were made in the valley, at which time the beautiful name of Muncy was definitely attached, first to Muncy Manor, then to the Creek, to Samuel Wallis' plantation, to the Fort Muncy, to the Valley and lastly in 1826, to the present town of Muncy and the almost equally beautfiul name, Canusarago, was forgotten. It was not that there was anything in the name Muncy to characterize any of these except that a tribe of Indians called Muncies, Monseys, or more correctly Minsies, was found there, temporarily residing, at the time that the pioneers came. This was not their permanent home. They were here under the direction and orders of the powerful Iroquoian Confederacy. T. KENNETH Wooo, M.D. 3 Hail to Alma Mater dear, Spread her fame in accents clear, Shout her glory to the skies, Tell the praise of dear old Muncy May our hearts be ever true, To the colors White and Blue Muncy High School, here's to you, Hail to Alma Mater, Hail. 4- History of Muncy-Muncy Creek Grade and High School Lawrie and Green, of Harrisburg, were the architects chosen to erect our new school building. It was to have 30 classroom units, a slate roof gabled, a separate gym- nasium and auditorium to be of stone construction. The central division of the building was to house facilities for community activities such as the auditorium, the stage, the gymnasium and the central office. The east wing of the building was to house the elementary grades one to six-the primary school occupy- ing the first floor and che intermediate school the second floor. The west wing was planned to accommodate the junior-senior high school, grades 7 to 12, the junior high school occupying the lower floor and the senior high school the upper. The plans also contained a spacious library with work room set apart, a home economics laboratory, an industrial arts laboratory, a physics and chemistry laboratory, a biology laboratory, a kitchen, a cafeteria room, a gymnasium with balcony, and auditorium with stage, storage rooms, and activities room, a supply room, a health room, a teachers room, and an 0Hice with a vault, a double commercial room, a locker room for girls and one for boys, besides an adequate number of regular classrooms. The building contains S6 rooms, practically every enclosure that is entered by means of a door. The cornerstone was laid without ceremony on November 24, 1931. The building, which was begun in October, 1931, was completed ready for delivery to the hands of the Muncy School Association and the Muncy-Muncy Creek Joint School District on July 5, 1932. Lawrie and Green have once more submitted tentative plans for future additions to our building. These plans represent three separate additions. One on the west ent' of the building would include a vocational shop, a new shop for the agricultural boys program, a cafeteria, and four additional rooms on the second floor. The proposed addi- tion to the central part of the building would carry out the enlargement of the present gymnasium, and provide seating space for 1,000 spectators. The gymnasium would also have moving partitions that would allow girls' physical education classes, and boys' classes to be in session at the same time. The auditorium would be extended to the rear to provide for a community room primarily intended for Boy and Girl Scout meetings, and other groups of the community who have need of this type of meeting place. On the east end of the building the addition would provide for six additional elementary class rooms. These plans have been prepared by the architect not with a view of immediate construction but rather to be ready when the need arises for more space. 5 DEDICATIO 'k 'k -k i' The senior class of 1945 dedicates this issue of the CANUSA- RAGO to the boys and girls of Muncy who are serving the armed forces of our country in World War II. We especially Want to honor those who have paid the supreme sacrifice, the number now totaling twenty-one.

We started our physical training early, each morning taking laps around the flag pole. We soon came to enjoy these exercise periodsg of course the bottles of milk that came afterwards had no influence whatever. A rhythm band was organized, which gave Raymond Shook a start on his musical career. At the end of the year We had our first picnic at VanRensler's Park. Our second year found us under the coaching of Miss Dunlap QMrs. Hartmanj and Mrs. May Goode- now. This year we lost a few players, Harold Catherman moving and the rest not making the team. We took part in the Tom Thumb Wedding, with the third grade. During this year we were helped over our rough bumps in mathematics by Mrs. Goodcnowls devoted and tireless Work. Entering third grade we took on as our coaches Miss Mae Stahl and Miss Mary Dewald fMrs. Iilderj. Miss Stahl had an ingenious device this year for our bad little boys fwe had a fewj adhesive tape was used to silence our talkative school mates, such as Butch Derr, also her screen beside her desk was fre- quently visited by such notables as Ray Confer and Martha Hoffman. We made good use of our new desks that year by promptly autographing our name and residence. We started our fourth year with Miss Martha Berriman QMrs. Max Fryej and Miss Betty Hafer fMrs. Seth Schochj as our coaches. After a very hard but enjoyable year the team hiked to the Muncy Look- Out as a rounding out of this year. Starting our fifth year we had as our coaches Miss Brelsford and Miss Emily Jane Waltman CMrs. Leroy Voneidaj. This year the team was introduced to the process of fractions which we all soon learned to enjoy. Many of us joined the Fifth and Sixth Grade Glee Club and took part in a singing program for P. T. A. As we neared the halfway mark in our school career we took on Mrs. Frances Kschinka and Miss Mary Ellen Waldron to do our coaching. Again many of us joined the Glee Club, and many of us will remember the play of Stephen Foster's songs which we presented for P. T. A. We were guided by two very good coaches, Mrs. Arthur and Miss King, in our seventh year. Mrs. Arthur introduced us to the grown-up way of higher education by taking us on a tour of the halls in the first few weeks of our new experience. One of the most bewildering new experiences were the screen assignments given out by Mrs. Arthur. NVe also enjoyed many assemblies and introduced ourselves in the dramatic field by putting on short plays for them. In the eighth grade our coaches were Miss Fannie Wood QMrs. Rodney Brownj and Miss Esther Stewart QMrs. Verus Weaverj. This year we were sorry to lose a member of our team, Paul Dougherty. The girls put on a gym exhibition under the supervision of Mrs. Weaver. Those who had Mr. Traupane ought to remember some of his tall stories. Ninth grade found us with Mr. Delos Bitler and Mr. Philip Traupane. We welcomed into our team many new students from the country schools. We had 97 students in our class. We put on a quiz pro- gram under the supervision of Mr. Bitler. Our promotion exercises at the end of this yearls journey had a patriotic theme. Hammond Derr read the Bible and Reverend Holmes led the entire grade in prayer. Our theme was "When I Look at the Flag," read by Ray Confer, lilaine Vetter, Robert Bieber, Harriet Waltman, Charles Harrison, Ruth Miller, Jack Hester, Evelyn Printzenhod, Pauline Kepner, Melvin Carpenter, and Beverly Henninger, Elizabeth Kschinka and Gene Smith received the American Legion Award. We officially started the quarter of the game when we enrolled in the first year of Senior High School. Ours was a large team and we required three coaches: Mr. Musial, Mr. Crist and Miss Anna Civvits fMrs. Brasuellj took over the care of us. To many of us, the highlight of the year was the band and glee club concert, held for the first time this spring. We gained two girls but lost two boys this year. Mary E. Waldron and Ruth Hall entered and Robert R. Baker and Grant Nuss joined the Navy. None of us will forget the skit we put on under Mr. Crist. As Henry Aldrich, Lester Neitz gave Ezra Stone some strong competition. Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Brasuell were our coaches for this next to last year of school. lla Hacker and Martha Secules became members of our team, while Milvin Carpenter and John Richey left for the Navy and Lester Neitz joined the Army. We held a class party at Hershey Park, but the effects of gas scarcity were already being felt and few attended this picnic. We aimed the ball for the goal post in this, our Senior year, and it has been a busy one-full of scoop deadline and class dues. The girls' minds have been preoccupied with plans for college, a career or marriage, while ghe boys merely speculated upon the date of induction. Mr. Derr, Mr. Whetstone, and finally Mr. Clendenin had charge of 12A-Mrs. Ernest Engelhardt had 12Z. Our class play, "As You Like It," under the direction of Mr. J. C. Clendenin, gave us many hours of work, but none can deny the enjoyment we derived from it. We all regret that many of our boys were unable to enjoy this class day and graduation with us fMarvin Barto, Harold Kilgus, john Hall, Charles Harrison, Robert Hofer, Frank- lin Woodside, Charles Stroup, and Lynn Persunj but we hope they will never forget their 12 years at Muncy High School FINIS 24 Class Poem of l945 We are the Class of '45 About to enter the portals Of a life new to us- And taking with us All we learned.

The Parent-Teachers Association was first organized in Muncy in the year 1914. This organization has always been a very active one. They provided playground equipment, Sponsored dances and parties, supplied funds for tonsileetomies, and glasses, and many other helpful necessary deeds. The P. T. A. had a very.successful year under the able leadership of Mrs. James Hitesman. She has served as president for three years and during that time a beautiful rostrum and chairs were purchased for our school stage. These pieces of furniture match the spinet piano purchased for the school by the P. T. A. during the presidency of Mrs. Lucetta Anderson. It has always been the aim of this organization for better home and school eo-operation and com- munity betterment. The Class of 1945 wishes to take this opportunity to thank the Parent-Teachers organization for their many kindnesses throughout our school life and to wish them continued success in all their ventures.

Oliicers were elected by the council members made up of elected delegates sent from each grade of the high school. These delegates meet once a month on an appointed date to conduct a business meeting. Mr. Engelhardt attends these meetings as faculty supervisor. A It was the task of each delegate to get the suggestions and opinions of their home room students on any subject that was being questioned at the council. A fine service flag Was purchased by the Student Council, which was placed above the auditorium door in the main corridor. The Class of 1945 Wishes the Student Council continued success in the coming years. 40 Fifth and Sixth Grades Glee Club Sopranos-John Balliet, Grace Barto, Priscilla Bennett, Marjorie Bieber, Wilhelmina Breneisen, Mary Kath- ryn Bredeniger, Ruth Brittain, Doris Brown, Helen Cotner, Dale Craig, Charles Edgar, William Edge- worth, Peggy Fisher, Loretta Fry, Beverly Hill, Patty Lou Kleckner, Mary Ellen Laurenson, Shirley Menclelsohn, Doris Milheim, Betty Miller, Dorothy Miller, Margaret Peddie, Louise Peterman, Wayne Printzenhoff, Janice Ritter, Alice Anna Swartz, Mary Tallman, Ada Ulshafer, Tommy Umlauf, Eve- lyn Weaver, Gerald Yoder.

The Fifth and Sixth Grades Glee Club is the oldest musical organization in our school, and is also thought of as one of the best glee clubs we have in our school today. Miss Hocker, their director, has been working very hard to keep up the quality of this glee club, and her efforts are appreciated by the entire school body. The pupils are picked out of the fifth and sixth grades who have the best voices, and then they are welded into a glee club of three parts, first soprano, second soprano, and alto. ' This' lee club su lies the vocal entertainment for man thin s around the school g PP Y g 1 such as singing for P. T. A. and for the Baccalaureate services for the seniors, and for many other events. 41 Junior High Boys' Chorus Richard Allen Donald Balliet Emerson Bardo Carl Barnes Robert Baysore Basil Bostwiek Eugene Burns Billy Carpenter Wilfred Danley Robert Derr Jack Edwards James Feigles Donald Fcigles Donald Greenly Jimmy Hill John Kelly Wilbur Kelly Henry Kilgus Howard McKee Robert McManigal Kay Micheal Keith Micheal Ben Renn Robert Shook Harold Smith The Boys' Ensemble Kimber Smith Richard Soars Dean Spring Earl Stackhouse Robert Vetter Robert Woodley Lynn Yagel jack Yoder Trllors--'Leroy Karshncr, Dick Sholtis, Charles Starr.

Besides playing for various school functions and activities, it is also asked frequently to put on a concert in other communities. Because the band takes on a military air, competition is very keen with every member trying very hard for a higher rank. Miss Whitenight has put in a lot of time and hard work to assure the school a band of which it could be proud, and her efforts are appreciated by every pupil in the school. This year, as in the past, the band climaxed the year by putting on a concert, which went over very successfully. just before the concert the band had to take a great loss when Robert Hofer, the veteran bass horn player, was taken into the navy. 45 Tri-Hi Y Ray Ona App Joan Dugan Phyllis Balliet Jean Eckman Mary Barbour Lorma Egli Jacquelyn Bennett Lucille Eichenlaub Lola Bennett Gladys Ellis Elsie Campbell Martha Feigles Alice Derr Mary Funston Lucille Dimm Margaret Ann Goodenow Dorothy Drick Ruth Hall Janet Dugan Shirley Hartman Eleanor Hicks Joan Hitesman Jean Hofer Martha Hoffman Roselise Holmes Ruth Houseknecht Lois Lee Ethel Klingerman Betty McManigal Mary Jane Moran Betty Painton Phyllis Peg Alma Smith Norma Smith Evelyn Printzenhoff Shirley Stroup Betty Reece Betty Renn Dorothy Riley Evelyn Schaffer Janet Sharrow Mary Ellen Shook Modern Miss Club Joanne Taylor Elaine Vetter Eleanor Waldron Mary Elizabeth Waldron .Jean Youtz Carolyn Zarr Beverly Akers Doris Allen Mildred Bair Phyllis Balliet Mary Elizabeth Barbour Betty Baysore Jacquelyn Bennett Mary Louise Bos twick Nancy Bruch Alice Campbell Alice Jean Derr Lois Derr Dorothy Drick Gladys Ellis Mary Frantz Mary Gruber Eleanor Hicks Jean Hill Joan Hitesman Beverly Lowe Emma Kahler Alida Kerstetter Florence Little June Miller Beatrice Mincemoyer Betty Myers Joanne Purpuri 46 Betty Reece Elizabeth Renn Florence Rishel Sylvia Rogers Arlene Rosenbaum Martha Secules Mary Ellcn Shook Evelyn Smith Caroline Starr Gloria Stitfler Carol Taylor Joanne Taylor Helen VanBuskirk Ann Vredenburg Eleanor Waldron Mary Elizabeth Waldron Pearl Walker Austin Artley Gene Beiber Marvine Bieber Robert Beiber Dean Bogart Donald Bogart George Covert Agriculture Eugene Fedder Donald Fisher Chester Frantz Earl Fry Henry Gordner Phillip Hall Tom Heilman James Hill Nelson Levan Gene Lightner George Martin Howard McKee 5 1 sm.

GIRVEN The agriculture department started in 1936 and has expanded to a very efficient and successful organization under the supervision of Mr. Girven since 1939. This chapter has taken numerous prizes for its group project work. There is one other such project in Pennsylvania. ' We have had three boys receive the Keystone Farmer Degree. This in itself is quite an honor. The Keystone Degree is the highest award one can receive inithe state of Pennsylvania. The boys who have received this degree are James Springman, Robert Beiber, and Marvin Barto. During the past four years they have acquired the following equipment: Two tractors, four wagons, one grain drill, one corn planter, two plows, one harrow, one disc harrow, one cultipacker, one pick-up hay baler, and one weeder. In 1941 they had ten acres of vegetables and five acres of field corn. In 1942 they had 12 acres of vegetables, 22 acres of field corn, and six acres in hay. In 1943 they had 140 acres of field crops and in 1944 185 acres of field crops, and in 1945 they plan to cultivate still more land. 47 The Librarians Team A-Shirley Hartman, Mary Funston.

CLENDENTN The achievement of our Scoop Staff in keeping up with former precedent of editing an up-to-date and informing school paper, is to be commended. It meant long hours of extra work and effort on the part of each member of the staff to produce a Scoop that is read and liked by everyone. There has been several new features added to the Scoop making it both entertaining and interesting. By editing a Hne school paper, it serves to bring to the parents of the student just what is being accomplished in our school. This helps to promote interest and co-operation between the school and the parents. We wish to thank the Scoop Staff and Mrs. Engelhardt as Faculty Adviser, who served until Mr. Clendendin came, and also the teachers for contributing to our school paper. Rosalind .,...

But the industry and enthusiasm of the cast and all others concerned more than justified the attempt. Attempting to produce this play in the Elizabethan manner, Mr. Clendenin, the director stressed costuming, rapidity of pace, and a carefree reading of the lines rather than scenery. In addition, the lovely songs and the help of the band did much to fur- ther that illusion. Of especial interest was the use of a band of "scene shifters," dressed as pages, who moved and supported the panels or screens which, with their stylized designs, were used to suggest backgrounds and setting. The entire production might be said to lie in the field of the experimental theater. SPORT I. B. NOLAN JAMES H. I-IARDER WARD L. MYERS STANLEY T. SCHUYLER GLENWOOD J. CRIST DORIS G.

B. Nolan and James Harder, the prospects of the team looked good. The 12-7 victory over Danville started the season with bright prospects. The morale of the team was high as was shown when we met our toughest opponents. Montgomery, our traditional rival, resumed football after a three-year lull. They met us on our home field. We avenged their 13-12 defeat of 1941 by winning on a rain-soaked field by the score of 18-6. In the final game of the season at Jersey Shore, the following seniors played for the last time: Howard Pewterbaugh, Harold Kilgus, John Hall, Charles Rickolt, Charles Stroup, Jake Akers, Marlin Kleckner, Robert Long, and Jack Hester. 53 First Row, Left to Iligzlitil Hester, H.

Gur team, coached by Mr. Harder, won the first half cham- pionship by being undefeated in six league games. The most thrilling game which we won, 23-22, was against Montgomery on their home floor. In the last half we won five straight league games. Then in the final game we lost to Montgomery fwho were also undefeated the last halfj by the score of 36-26 giving Montgomery second half cham- pionship. In the Playoffs we met Montgomery on our home floor for the first game. We won by the score of 36-25. In the second game at Montgomery we lost 40-37.

Coach Myers, who put the team through their paces, formerly coached at Shamokin and Bradford High Schools. Though handicapped by size, the team won 7 of their 13 games for a very com- mendable record. If we are able to keep having Junior High teams in coming years, the policy should add strength to future,Varsity teams by providing competitive experience for the boys of Junior High school years. 55 Left to Ri,a:ht-Robert Likens, Allen Dugan, William 1lIeLangh1in, Gene Smith, Maurice Bieber, George Martin, Frank Derr, Lewis Soars, Harold Eg1i, Dan Heyl, Howard POW't91'llll11gll fT02l1I1 Cnptninl, Coach Schuyler.

We obtained a small schedule of four meets: Kingston, Lock Haven, Forty Fort, and Lewistown. All meets except Forty Fort were at home. The team which lacked experience through not having wrestling last year looked good, and showed great improvements when the season closed. This was shown in the final match of the season with Lewistown, whom we beat by the score of 29 to 16. Four men won two or more matches out of the four-game schedule which was very good. Robert Likens won at the Lock Haven match and the Lewistown match. Maurice Bieber was the winner at Forty Fort and also won the Lewistown match. George Martin won against Lock Haven and Lewistown. Our team captain, Howard Pewterbaugh, had the best record, winning three out of four matches, beating Kingston, Lock Haven and Lewistown men. The only match he lost was to a Forty Fort man by one point. Four men, George Martin, William McLaughlin, Maurice Bieber, Howard Pewter- baugh, entered the State Meets at State College, Martin and Bieber winning the first match but losing out in the semi-finals. Pewterbaugh won all of his matches until he came to che finals, where he lost to the State Champion of last year. McLaughlin lost out in the beginning. 56 "M" Club First Row, Left to Right-M.
