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
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

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.
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
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.

Dust to Dust in an Alien land, yet still America's Own.

Class History of l945
The team was brought together in the year of 1933, starting our first practice under the coaching of
Miss Aura Minsker, Mrs. Mazie Dice, and Miss Martha Koons. 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
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
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

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.

The Student Council was first organized in 1943 for the purpose of getting the
students, ideas of how they would like to have things done.
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
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.

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. '

The Band, organized in 1941, had a very successful year under their present director, Miss Emnnell
Whitenight. 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
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.

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

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
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.

This year the school produced "As You Like lt," a somewhat more ambitious under-
taking than usual. 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.

When we started our 1945 football season under Coach I. 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.

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-

When Mr. Schuyler, former heavyweight wrestler of Bloomsburg State Teachers
College, came here this year, the outlook for wrestling was promising.
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.
