We realize that these busy men spend their Valuable time in order that we may have the things we want and need, and we take this opportunity to say, "Thank you". MR. NICHOLAS Mr. Nicholas, our principal, has contributed much to M. T. H. S. Always willing to take time for our problems, he is, we feel, our personal friend and advisor, as well as our administrator. li ,WWA Wwe? Q5 W wifiagwil W!

Secretary Senior Recollections '41 .... Registration day .... It seems so long ago-one-fifth of our lives up to this time. There were so many things to learn . . . room 126 is in the east wing upstairs. . . We do not leave class at the warning bell . . . fire drill . . . study hall manuals . . . the Seniors oc- cupy the front stairs. Now we had a feeling of respect never before experienced for General Logan. All -at once Carbondale was our enemy. Lucky us! We had a fellow Freshman on the Varsity football squad . . . major letters. Our first formal affair . . . the football banquet . . . the dance afterward with the sound of formals swirling round about . . . and how we felt the next day! December 8-war! None of us realized then how serious it was. '42 .... We weren't so green anymore. Our class took part in things. We had members on the assembly program. The football banquet was informal that year and has been since then. High school romances .... who went with whom for awhile . . . our grades were a little low- er than in our Freshman year. We had a wonderful basketball team. The jeep drive took place and the queen was chosen from our class .... "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody" .... '43 .... Upper Classmen .... We really helped in initiation then. The Junior Stands be- longed to us. We sold soda at the games .... A Senior's collar bone was broken. We were un- disputed champions of our conference and West Frank fort, a non-conference team, was the only one which defeated us .... the Carbondale game .... a dance afterward .... basketball season. Christmas vacation was longer than ever before because so many boys and girls worked. Our first prom .... we prepared it-cooked, cleaned, decorated. Then that night .... Tommy Lawson's orchestra and a theme of "Stardust" .... all marvelous. '44 .... At last! We're the class to be envied. Ninety-eight of us remain and we started four years ago with 191. Now we've had some Latin-amo, amas, amat-science, English, math -a general course for most of us. The West Frankfort game .... again a Senior had his collar bone broken but the score was 0-O.. . . A very successful season. Harry James was at St. Louis and some of us got to see him. The fun on the annual staff .... the Senior Play .... the prom again. We sat back this time and let the Juniors do the work. It's almost all over now. Here's to all of us.

Our class members con- trol the J'unior Stands under the direction of our class sponsor, Mr. Berrier. There are six cheer leaders this year and five of them are mem- bers of our class. We compose a large part of the band, both the instru- mental and twirling sections. Our fellow classmen were members of the Varsity football squad. We applaud them as they make touchdown after touchdown. Among us are comedians, singers, and dancersg girls and boys with high ambitions. As we gaze around us, we see things that would have appeared out- landish in our parents' youth. This is a gay age, trying in every way to cover up the gloom caused by war. There are girls in long sweaters, short skirts, bobbie socks, saddle oxfords, or later still, girls in boys' clothes-sweaters, socks, and slacks. Hair styles are extreme now: for the boys-practically no hairg for the girl-long natural bobs or very short curly locks. Women scream and faint because of Frank Sinatra. What an age! We are all teen-age people sharing pretty much the same experiences and doing and saying the same things. It's great to be at Junior! JUNIOR OFFICERS Leroy Lehmann ,- .... President J. R.

Secretary W 5 'S N The Sophomores Speak li The Sophomore year is a little disappointing. It's really a relief not , " to be a Freshman anymore, but it's a let-down-no attention from any- ' one. We're not pointed out as green Freshmen, we're not lucky enough l to be upperclassmen, we're just not. We hardly know how to act-we're too new at this thing to heckle the Freshmen much. Our mistakes are x inexcusable now, for we aren't inexperienced anymore. Of course, all 166 XXX, of us can take part in the school activities, and- we have done so. Our class members take part in sports-football, basketball, and track, and 'N one of the cheer leaders was a member of our class. We have members in lm the band and chorus, too-but isn't there some wa we gain recog- at nition? Oh, well! Our day will on come. 1 , . ix X f s Qs, , 'K .ru J -, i ,ay JP as l , X ly! . 9 1055 J li, .

It seems to us that our class, composed of 188 students, should have prestige, being the largest-but we are warned about voicing our opinions. Isn't this a free country? Can't we speak out? No! Be silent! We're green, inexperienced, and scared to death. Even though we aren't as timid as some of our predecessors, the idea is there. Study hall manuals . . . . Ere drills . . . . room 128 is in the east wing, second floor. . . . We jump at the janitor's bell, leave class at the warning bell, get lost in the halls and unwittingly ask an upperclassman where to go. Will we never learn? Of course. In a year this being new at everything will be a bad dream and we'll be enjoying the discornfiture of the new students. FRESHMAN OFFICERS Leah Bradley ...,.................... ....

These included such obstacles as the film and paper shortages, and as always, the question ol' raising funds. However, these and many more were overcome through the co-operation ot' the photographers, engravers, printers, and most of all the M. T. H. S. student body and faculty. We especially appreciate the assistance of Miss Mann, our sponsor, who has devoted so much time and effort toward making the 1945 Crimson and Corn the success that it is. We hope that this annual will be treasured in the years to come and will bring to you memories of happy days "In and Around M. T. H. S." Editor-in-Chief -- ,.,,.,,.,,..

O tlice Practice Class STAFF TYPISTS ,Q V,0l'l0ll M3 41 Glamour Girls of M. T. I-l. S. By Janet Brymer It cannot be said that M. T. H. S. has been denied her share of "Glamour Girls." To prove this fact, I invite you to watch the daily procession of "femme fatales" in the main corridor by the front entrance, before school starts in the morning and in the afternoon. Our "Glamour Girls" are of varied types but most of them have at least one thing in common and that is their affection for sweaters and skirts, which have long been the standard attire f0I' high SCh00l 8il'lS- T0 complete tl'liS SW63 ter and skirt ensemble, an M. T. H. S. belle usually wears a single strand of pearls, plaid socks, and saddle oxfords or moccasins. If she wants to wear something different she can always feel well dressed in a jumper and blouse. The latest trend, however, is to invest in a boy's sleeveless sweater or a pair of blue jeans. It's a great treat to see one of our "Glamour Girls" in her frilliest dress and sheerest hose because she saves these for very special occasions. Her hair-style is very important to a glamour girl so let's take a quick look at the various ways in which she may fix her hair. Short feather-bobs are cute this year, but some girls like long hair so that's all right, too, if they think it more becoming to their personality. A center part has been very popular the last couple of years. Maybe it's the Hedy Lamarr influence. We mustn't forget pigtails in this list of glamorous hair styles, because they are seen often on the heads of our M. T. H. S. beauties. Next we notice make-up. Most of the girls use lipstick and powder and there are some who use only lipstick. It's quite a thrill when a girl puts on her first lipstick and it is also a warning to Mom and Dad that daughter dear is growing up. Her lipstick usually graduates from a soft natural shade to a genuine red. Maybe someday when we become city gals we can wear purple lipstick, too! It is thought very clever to paint different articles with fingernail polish, such as glasses, bracelets, pins, hairpins, and other things that can be painted. Have you ever heard any of your elders say, "I don't know what this younger generation is coming to?" I have. And I sometimes wonder just what will ha.ppen next. Things are changing so fast and of course the younger generation must change with them. If you wonder what the older generation means when they say this, just put a vivid picture of our so-called "Glamour Girls" in your mind and you have one of the reasons. . 42 . Report Card Day By Janet Brymer Among the dark days at M. T. H. S. are those that come every nine weeks when each student is presented with a gruesome little object which is called a report card. To be quite frank, the student body would be very happy to reliev'e the teachers and the ofiice force of the hardship of issuing these little white cards, but apparently our thoughtful consideration is not appreciated because report cards continue to appear a few days after the end of each quarter. After each quarter is over, there is a great deal of suspense as to just which day report cards will be issued. In some cases Mother has warned that unless we bring home cards on which the grades are above a set standard, there will be no more shows or cokes for a few weeks. So you see, a great deal rests upon the tale a report card tells. That moment in which the teach- er hands you your report card is indeed a crucial one. Usually the cards are given out after an assembly, so when one is called about the week after the end of a quarter, students know what will follow. They usually know, anyway, because students have a knack of finding out things which concern them. Mr. Nicholas finally announces that report cards are ready and then reads the list of rooms to which the students are to go. According to this list, students with last names beginning with A to C go to Room 112, D to F go to Room 216, etc. With measured steps the students pass to their assigned room, resolved to face whatever comes. Usually they slide into a seat and stare ahead at the teacher holding the report cards. A mental shudder overtakes each student as he thinks what might be inscribed on his card. Grad- ually the time draws near and he knows he will soon receive his card. Oh, there's his name being read now and up he goes to the desk to learn the good or bad news, whatever it may be. As he walks away from the desk and out of the room, he .studies the card very seriously and you don't have to be a mind reader to know what he sees. If he isn't satisfied you will know it at once by the gloomy expression on his face, and yet if he has been surprised by receiving a high grade in a subject in which he thought he would surely fail, you will be sure to notice the look of ecstacy on his face. Report card day can create a good deal of worry for a high school student. It is truly a day of chills and thrills. 43 In and Around M. T. l-l. S. JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM The most outstanding social event of the year at M. T. ll. S. is the annual Junior-Senior Prom. Each spring during the month of May the Junior class spares no expense in entertaining the seniors by staging an outstanding Prom. A central theme is chosen and the affair is built around this idea. The gymnasium is decorated to carry out the theme and the juniors work for days preparing for the event. An outstanding orchestra is en- gaged to furnish the music for the dance, tasty refreshments are served, and games are provided for those who don't care to dance. Juniors and seniors dress in their best for this al'- fair for it is truly the biggest event of the school year. ASSEMBLIES Xssemblies are probably the favorite indoor sport at l'. ll. S. The ringing of the familiar assembly bell brings to every student. Assemblies are usually held every Friday rnoon at one o'clock. Rand and Chorus concerts, All School ing Programs, All School Assembly Try-outs, Pep Ses- Q, Outside Speakers, and the presenting of Athletic and nlarship Awards make up the variety of assembly programs ented during the year. In addition to these programs, as- ilies are called when matters pertaining to the entire ent body are discussed by faculty and student leaders. CHEER LEADERS It takes peppy cheer leaders and a nucleus of enthusiastic students to create pep. The cheer leaders of M. T. H. S. are chosen by the student body at an assembly program try-out in the fall. Our cheer leaders this year were three Junior girls, Bernice Borgsmiller, Phyllis Hadiield and Mary Kay Hammond, and our interpretive trio of acrobats, Frankie Hart, and Chester and Lester Ferrell. These cheer leaders, with the backing of Pep Club and the student body, as well as many townspeople attending the games, supported the "Red Devils" in all of their football and basketball games. 44 ln and Around M. T H S SCHOOL DANCES On an average of once a month the students of M. T. H. S. get a chance to "swing and sway" when the gymnasium takes on the appearance of a ballroom. An admission charge of ten ci nts covers the cost of these dances. Admittance is limited to high school students and their parents. Most of the dances are held following football and basketball games and on these oc- casions students from the visiting schools are also invited to attend. Music for the dances is furnished by our electric vic- trola and our own swing band. Students look forward to these dances for they are among our most important social functions of the school ycar. DETENTION JUNIOR CANDY STAND "Get your candy bars and chewing gum here" is the familiz chant of the Junior Stand workers heard each day in the mai corridor from 12:07 to 12:55 p. m. These salesmen are the an bitious members of the Junior Class who are making mom so that they may put on a Junior-Senior Prom and also carl a substantial balance in their treasury over into their senim year in order to publish an annual. Mr. Berrier willingly supe vices this group who not only sell their wares at noon but ali at all home football and basketball games. bcldom do any students go through M. T. H. S. without see- ing the interior of Room 126 which is more often referred to as "detention" room. Students, under the "eagle" eye of Miss Clitlie Stewart, occupy the seats in this room for a period of 45 minutes after school for misconduct, tardiness to school and class, and absence. Many alibis are used unsuccessfully such as "I didn't know," "I forgot," "I gotta work," "I gotta go to foot- ball practice," but to no avail. Each student who receives a de- tention notice during the day must on that day "sweat it out" and serve this time. Detention holds precedence over any other afterschool appointment. 45 ln ard Around M. T. H. S. NOON HOUR AT M. T. H. S. At 12:07 the bell rings and there is a great exodus from all class rooms as the students rush to the cafeteria, to their homes or to Barney's for lunch. This is the first breathing spell since 8:15 in the morning when the tardy bell rang. By 12:25 many students return to school to chat with their friends, to patron- ize the Junior Stand for some candy or gum, or to find their "one and only" and further their mutual affection for each other. The lower halls and the main entrance are crowded with students who only thirty minutes before were anxiously await- ing the ringing of the noon bell. At 12:55 the bell rings for the classes and by 1 p. m. all is quiet again and the students have resumed their search for knowledge. THE CUSTODIANS The Fustodians are a very important part of any school. At 'physboro Township High School the Custodian Staff con- : of Mr. Albert Jauss, head custodian, and his assistants Webb, Mr. Crain, Mr. Stevens, and Mrs. Jauss. Fhere are many duties connected with taking care of the ,ol building and grounds. Each room at M. T. H. S. is cleaned 'y day and the whole building is thoroughly cleaned during summer. Besides these duties, the custodians come to our ue by fixing lockers, unlocking doors, building sets for our s and doing many other kind deeds. May we say "Thank ' to our fine custodians who keep our school a safe, clean healthful place. OUR LIBRARY Our Library is one of the things of which M. T. H. S. is very proud. We have in it about five thousand books, offering var- ious types of informatiton to the students. Particularly strong is the supply of reference books available. The encyclopedias and the Reader's Guide are in this class. Students studying history and English find the Library especially useful, as there are numerous pamphlets on current topics, and an increasing number of good books. The Library holds subscriptions to thirty-two current magazines and two daily papers, all of them interesting reading. We all truly appreciate the opportunities our Library offers us. 46 'MRSA " GENERAL JOHN A.

Also, since communication by languages is a two-way exchange of reading and writing, speaking and listening, skills in spelling, sentence structure, grammar exactness, paragraph development-even thinking and speaking clearly and distinctly-must be developed. Intelligent use of the library and correlation of English with other subjects is also striven for in this course. In short, this course is one that is designed for training the individual for service and to enjoy a more complete and happy life. The following are the main objectives: 1. To provide training in reading for information, for interpretation of instructions, and for enjoyment. 2. To develop the language skills and habits necessary to clear and logical thinking and expres- sion, both written and oral. 3. To provide practical training in the mechanics of English essential to effectiveness of ex- pression. 4. To develop in students an appreciation of the fine ideals of the race as exemplified in its literature. 5. To stimulate habits of recreational reading in standard and present day material. 6. To provide opportunities for development of appreciation and good taste in radio, motion pictures, and dramatic performances. 7. To promote wide and discriminative reading of current periodicals and newspapers. 8. To stimulate creative writing abilities in speaking and writing Ctraining the student to organize and present his thinkingb so as to entertain or convince others-an ability vitally necessary to successful and happy living. 9. To correlate English with other subjects. 49 The Languages l ENGLISH II "Reading maketh a full mang conference a ready many and writing an exact man." This adventure in English II, briefly stated, represents a summary of the above words. However, to the students of this subject, it takes on essentially different characteristicsg name- ly, voluminous reading, numerous themes, both oral and writteng and tedious book reports. These seekers of knowledge gaze, almost ironically, at this vast, unexplored literary land with its emotionally confusing poems, its imaginary labyrinthine novels and short stories, and its stirring dramas. This journey is charted along a definite course, providing training for meet- ing the demands of future literature courses and developing a well-rounded literary taste. Into this maze and tangled mass the textbook, "Adventures in Appreciation" lands the students into the outer circle of this exploration. The first discovery is the short story including such writers as Hawthorne, Kipling and O. Henry. The next is "Silas Marner," from which great pleasure is derived by viewing the customs and manners of England in that historical period. After this, students revel in romantic chivalry with King Arthur, his knights and ladies in the "Idylls of the King". Then as a relaxation from the above tales, students are given shorter poems by past and present writers. The final stage of this literary panorama is reached with a study of dramas, which appeals to the love of make-believe in all. Thus the old and the modern drama are presented to view-Shakespeare's "As You Like It" and the very recent "Yellow Jack". In between these literary findings, the textbook "Using English" assists students in record- ing, both orally and written, their discoveries, relieving the monotony and dread of incorrect grammar, punctuation and increasing vocab ulary. ENGLISH III English III is a course designed for the purpose of giving the student an introduction to American literature. A definite history of the development of phases of literature is studied, so as the student is reading and analyzing types of literature he is also learning of the struggle which literature has undergone to attain the part it plays in the world today. This course is divided into units which are discussed in the class throughout the year following a set pattern of study. These units include the short story, the essay, biography, poetry, and drama. Various types of each of these are studied along with information about their authors, their literary forms, and those men to whom tribute has been given because of their efforts toward the development of the type of literature being studied. At the end of this course, an English III student is acquainted with the great men of American literature and their works. Along with this study of American literature, each student is required to give written reports of books which he has read outside of class. This is done to create greater interest in reading and to guide the student in his selection and appreciation of reading material. 50 The Languages SENIOR COMPOSITION Senior Composition is a review of parts of speech, phrases and clauses, punctu- ation, spelling, and correct usage. By writing themes the pupil has an opportunity to improve his sentence structure and to show his creative ability. One reference theme is required. Colleges today require freshmen to take an examination in English. Vocabulary and sentence style comprise the larger part of these entrance examinations. Since the Senior Composition course is to prepare the pupil for college rhetoric, emphasis is put on vocabulary study. Sentence style is also stressed. Usually one Shakespearean play is read during the term. LATIN The basic aim of Latin I and Latin II courses is to learn to read Latin. The read- ing material consists of stories from Roman history, mythology, and Caesar's Gallic War. Emphasis is placed on derivative study so the student will increase his knowledge of English words by recognizing their Latin ancestors. The pupils study about the everyday life of the Roman people, their government, their religion, and their culture. From the Latin course the pupils gain a greater appre- ciation of the contributions Rome has made to modern civilization.

This was followed by a study of the demands of labor for recognition of the working man's problems. To understand the partial solution of these problems special attention was placed on England, Germany, and France as leaders in the re- form movement. A survey of the social problem in turn involved economic and political institu- tions. Since Europe is a small continent of many nations, each with a dense population, it became quite interesting to students to watch the struggle over boundary lines and the scramble for backward countries. The pupils traced the formation of alliances which came to a test in World War I and were followed by the reconstruction period. When the diplomats failed to settle many of the difficulties, the crux of the situation fell to individual countries. After trying times dictators became popular in some countries of Europe and we watched them attempt to broaden their horizon of influence until the present crisis is precipiated. Especially did we attempt to find the reason why it is possible for a man to become a dictator. Students were urged to be on the alert for comparisons in European politics to the government of the United States, and to feel free to discuss points that they believed might aid in furthering democracyg also to point out those things which might endanger our Democracy. As in all history classes at M. T. H. S., a current events paper was read and discussed one day each week. The school also subscribed for two daily papers, the St. Louis Globe Democrat and the Christian Science MOI'gtOF, which students were urged to read regularly. J Social Studies UNITED STATES HISTORY In United States History, students begin with the closing of the trade routes by the Turks. Here we find a motive for the exploration which led to the discovery of the Western Hemisphere. After moving rapidly through the exploration, we come to the contest for supremacy of this new land by the various European powers, with England emerging with the spoils in the North. Here in this struggle we see the "germ of democracy" planted which was destined to burst into flower in the American Revolution. After fol- lowing the efforts of our ancestors through the Revolutionary War, and the post war problems of that day which threatened to wreck the new "Ship of State", we come to the real test of "one nation". After the question of secession has been settled, we embark on Imperialism which is followed by World War I. This in turn leads us to the 1930's and to the prob- lems familiar to everyone. Throughout the course an effort is made to correlate the past and the present. Since we have no civics course for the duration, a decided effort is made to emphasize both the problems of democracy and the structure of our government. All of the above is an ambitious program which may not be realized in its entire- ty, but will help us understand America, in order that we may be better American citizens. ,4,u-ul..9-16A-v,' ,Z ,ak un. l History Class 56 not ,f,1,,,fQ,6....L,6 13,-..J"1cf4.o-Ll-0 G . AUDITORIUM 57 Mathematics and Science Practical Mathematics Algebra I Plane Geometry Algebra II Solid Geometry Military Mathematics Hygiene Biology Chemistry Physics 58 Mr. Sabine Miss Smith Mathematics Mr. Nicholas Mr. Meek Mr. Berrier Mrs. Price Mathematics and Science Teachers 5 PRACTICAL MATHEMATICS Practical Mathematics is a refresher course of the fundamentals of arithmetic. As each phase of the work is taught, attempts are made to discover misunder- standings and errors in the pupils' work and to see that these are corrected be- fore proceeding. In this way it is possible to improve the arithmetical ability of the students. to make them more accurate and to enable them to handle the type of mathematics they will encounter out of school. Many of the students who take practical mathematics continue with algebra and geometry. ALGEBRA I Algebra has for generations held a place in the curriculum of high schools. This is not without reason. It is a practical subject, not only as a basis for ad- vanced work but as a means of developing important educational values. Any student who successfully studies algebra is, Whether he realizes it or not, acquir- ing the art of logical and analytical thinking. In the first year Algebra course, the equation in its various forms is studied in great detail. The use of positive and negative numbers, the formation and evalu- ation of formulas, and the various types of factoring are all given thorough study. Many verbal problems are used because of the necessity for thoughtful and careful analysis in their solutions. 59 Mathematics PLANE GEOMETRY While algebra's greatest value is as a preparatory subject, geometry has addi- tional benefits to offer. Geometry is the science of figures and solids. It is taken by some because it is required to enter college. Others, who are interested in oratory or debating, take the course to improve their sense of logic. Still others, who are absorbed in sciences and engineering, look forward to geometry as a stepping stone toward the mastery of their chosen occupation. Geometry might be difficult to grasp in the eyes of most students, but every person should take it as a subject to improve his thinking. ALGEBRA II Geometry and algebra are considered basic subjects for further study of mathematics. The second course in algebra aims to fix more permanently the principles learned the first year and to extend those principles to include imagin- ary numbers and other exponents than integral expressions. Algebra offers itself as a basis of study of higher mathematics as well as every- day problems. It leads to the study of careers growing daily in importance: chem- istry, physics, engineering, navigation, architecture, the operation of big guns, etc., and the men with ambitions such as these are started on the way to a life of service to their community and country by algebra, the gateway to great career S. Mafhe Inatifjs C lass 60 Mathematics CVASS xii Mxxiwfy W' SOLID GEOMETRY As the name, solid geometry, implies, it is a study of solid figures. Since figures of three dimensions cannot be represented on a plane surface the student must of necessity be able to visualize the relative positions of the parts of a solid figure. In high school the course in solid geometry is so organized that from the definition of a plane surface the pupil is led to discover the method of finding the area and volume of a sphere. MILITARY MATHEMATICS Since the beginning of the war, a course in military mathematics has been of- fered for the special benefit of boys who will soon go into military service. The course is particularly for those who plan to enter the Air Force. The course includes trigonometry and navigation. Trigonometry is the basis for navigation, range finding, mapping and surveying. The school as a whole has been fortunate in getting a regulation bubble sextant, like those used in the Air Force and the Navy, which is used by the boys in learning navigation. Already a number of boys who have taken this course are in the armed forces. 61 Science . . Lab0YalotY swim HYGIENE We believe that health education should be taught and practiced in all parts of our school system, in much the same manner as English must be used in every classroom and in situations throughout the school. Hygiene endeavors to give information to each Freshman about his or her own physical body, and the best ways to keep that body fit and in good health. Hy- giene seeks to impart, in an interesting way, facts in regard to desirable health habits for students. Hygiene deals with the right,care of the skin, teeth, eyes, ears, breathing organs, feet, hair, and other parts and processes of the student's body. The health habits especially stressed are those that have to do with producing well balanced boys and girls, physically, mentally, and socially. BIOLOGY Each of us has studied biology by observing the various things of nature about us. We all know some plants, trees, and animals by name. We all know some- thing about planting and cultivating and what will help plants grow and the harm produced by weeds and insects. Biology is a subject that gives us many objects of interest and much in- formation. Studying biology increases the enjoyment of every walk, trip, or stay in the country, and helps a person to enjoy leisure time throughout life. Biology builds up powers of observation and points out the most interesting and import- ant things to look for. 62 Science CHEMISTRY Chemistry is the science that deals with all the known elements of the earth. lt studies the natural processes of change, such as burning, rusting, and decay. It takes up the multitude of living things, the method of obtaining valuable metal from their ores and also making apparently worthless substances valuable, and the discovery of new medicines. Chemistry will help one to be more intelligent in his diet and health habits. It will help one in his life work: moreover, it is necessary to study chemistry in order to become a physician, dentist, druggist, mining engineer, geologist, dietitian, or nurse. The laboratory work is fascinating and enables one to obtain skill in handling and manipulating equipment. PHYSICS Physics is the science which pertains to those phenomena of inanimate matter involving no alteration in regard to chemical composition or, more specifically, to the most general and fundamental of such phenomena, namely motion. Walk into a Physics Lab and gaze around. You will be overwhelmed by the vast array of complicated contraptions. Working with them will be rows of little pseudo-archimedes nodding their heads as they ponder over the monstrosity of the seemingly unsolvable perplexities. Once in a while a profoundly wise student will hit upon a colossal idea, quickly write something in his workbook, and return to another problem with renewed fervor. Why take physics? At the end of the year, in reward for his tussle with many and varied problems, each student will have a greater knowledge of heat, light, sound, mechanics. etc. Better still, he will think accurately and naturally be more inquisitive about the why's and wherefore's of everything.

It is both a laboratory and classroom subject. The course of study is chiefly concerned with the principles and techniques of cooking, nutritional facts and some study is devoted to infant and invalid cookery. There are also units on canning in the fall. and on candies at Christmas season. The laboratory work follows along in each unit. Girls work in pairs and prepare food according to class recipes. Some group serving is done in the class itself to outsiders. Foods II and III are predominantly quantity cookery courses. Students help prepare the noon meal in the cafeteria. These courses give students a background of training in actual preparation of food in large quantities. Units of study are given on nutrition and the preparation of the var- ious types of food. The cafeteria is the laboratory for this class. UT Home Economics Cafeteria Dining Room CAFETERIA The cafeteria functions as a lunchroom for the student body and faculty, and the kitchen as a laboratory for the advanced food classes. The supervision and management is done by the foods teacher, Miss Slocumb, and the actual preparation of the food by the Foods II and III classes under the direction of our able cook, Mrs. Rowald. The noon meal is served daily. The menu consists of a main course of meat and vegetables, salads and desserts. Sandwiches, chili, soup, ice cream and milk are sup- plements ofthe main luncheon menu. The cafeteria consists of a modernly equipped kitchen designed for cafeteria service and the lunchroom adjoining seats 150. The corridor just outside the lunch- room has tables for lunching purposes. Altogether ample space is provided for students who eat lunch at school. Miss Stewart serves as cashier and bookkeeper for the cafeteria. M. T. H. S. is one of the the few schools of Southern Illinois which provides and maintains a cafeteria for student and faculty use, serving tasty food of high mm-ition- al value at reasonable prices. Cafeteria Kitchen GS Home Economics CLOTHING I Clothing I is a beginning class to acquaint girls with the elementary principles of sewing. Sewing is done by hand and machine. Stress is placed on learning to understand and use commer- cial patterns and to make adjustments according to individual measurement. For the most part, garments are made of cotton material, since this is an easier and less expensive material for beginning students to use. Some study is made of personal grooming and the selection of costume to suit individual types and personalities. Units of study in consumer buying and textiles are also included in this course. Clothing Class CLOTHING II An effort is made in this class to present subject matter in clothing and textiles on a senior high school level, recognizing that the students have already been introduced to simple skills of construction in Clothing I, which is a prerequisite to this class. It is hoped that through the presentation of this subject matter the following aims will be met by each girl: 1. Aid her in determining desirable standards in dress. 2. Contribute to her responsibility as a buyer. 3. Give her an adequate basis for wise selection of both fabrics and dress. 4. Familiarize her with the necessary steps in garment construction, and their relation to the production of a satisfactory garment. 5. Inform her of the care needed to maintain garments made from various fabrics in sat- isfactory condition. 6. To awaken in her an intelligent interest in the various phases of clothing and art ex- pression through clothing, in the economic aspect of clothingg and in her responsibility as a consumer buyer. Clothing II is mainly a laboratory class. Three projects are required, consisting of a tailored dress, a lined jacket, and a rayon dress. Other projects are chosen by the students, based upon individual needs as a high school girl. 69 Industrial Arts Mr. Joyce Mr. Waldron Mr. Weiss Industrial Arts Teachers f w MECHANICAL DRAWING The ultimate aim of the drafting student is to learn to read, make and understand blue-prints and drawing. This work is necessary for one to go ahead in either of the other two phases of industrial education, or to work in some factory where blue-print reading is directly involved in the work that the person has to do. In learning this work, the student must develop a sense of responsibility, accuracy and appreciation. Each student is responsible for the drawings that he turns in. These drawings must be clean and well made. To accomplish this, the students must learn to take care of valuable equipment and instruments, keep them clean and in good working condition. He must also keep himself clean. The drafting student must develop the ability to do accurate work. The workmanship on the drawings must be near perfect. To accomplish this, the students must develop skill in using and reading the instruments, such as the compass, dividers, scales, and blue-prints that are set before him. He must develop the ability to read, or listen to a problem and then produce the problem as an accurate finished drawing. The student must develop an appreciation for art and mathematics. Mechanical Drawing gives the student an understanding of the mathematics he has learned in other courses by applying accuracy to size, shape and scale. The finished drawing must be well balanced and neatly done. This gives the student an appreciation for art and de- signing, especially when the drawing is a poster or the front cover to the booklet of drawings that he is making. 70 Industrial Arts Mechanical Drawing Class WOODWORK Woodwork at M. T. H. S. is not taught as a vocational subject, but as a subject in the field of general education. The very nature of the work develops, without calling attention to it, such character traits as confi- dence, curiosity, resourcefulness and initiative. Neatness and accuracy are stressed also. Projects made in the shop always have some intended use. Most of them are pieces of furniture or something of use around the home. In the lirst year, most all of the woodworking tools are used. All hand operations are taught. Therefore, the projects made must be those that involve only hand operations. During the second year they are able to make almost any type of furniture found in the home. Woodwork Shop l l 7 1 lndustrial Arts of Metal Shop METAL SHOP Metal Shop is not a place for passing fancies, but a place to prepare for future successes. Training for success in life is the theme around which all of the activi- ties in the shop are centered. Projects are made in each area to bring out the basic tool operations for that area. Areas taught are sheet metal, bench metal, soldering. forging, arc welding, gas welding, and lathe work. Metal Shop offers the student an opportunity to select an industrial field for a vocation. Interior of Metal Shop Exterior Music BAND The M. T. H. S. marching band again this year, as in the past, added color to the football games in the fall. The band attended the annual Carbondale-Murphysboro game, which was at Carbon- dale this year, and presented an outstanding performance in marching maneuvers at all home games. The concert band presented student band concerts during the months of October, December, and February. The concert series was brought to a successful close with the presentation of the an- nual spring concert. Members of the M. T. H. S. band participated in the regular district contest and regional band clinics. : A high school dance band was organized and gave performances on several student assemblies.

In the first year, the student learns the fundamentals of type- writing. This covers the learning of the keyboard, technique in handling the machine and a knowledge of' the essential parts. in the second year the training is more extensive. The student gains accuracy and speed and receives instructions in general office work. The equipment used for this instruction is adequate and complete in exery detail. It is as- sembled for accuracy and speed to meet the strict requirements of mod- ern business. The typewriters used are of different makes so as to ac- custom the students in the handling of the various models. Each year a definite speed standard is set and must be achieved by each pupil. Only when the necessary requirements are fulfilled is the student allowed to continue with the next term of typing. As the course is completed term by term, the student grows more accurate in his work and gains speed. He acquires a businesslike precision and a power of steady concentration. Typing is one of the most useful and practical courses offered in the high school curriculum. It takes work and a steady mind, but once mas- tered it offers a background for a life's work. 'ffl Commerce SHORTHAN D Shorthand is the study, which when one is skilled with its uses, enables him to write a large number of words in a short length of time. The Gregg system is used at M. T. H. S. This was first published in 1888 in two little paper-covered pamph- lets. Five years later, a revised and greatly improved edition was published under the title, "Gregg Shorthand." Thirty-two years have elapsed since its publication in book form. Today, Gregg Shorthand is the standard system of America. The aim in shorthand is to follow the natural principles that govern ordinary writing. The characters are written on the slope of long hand, which aids in secur- ing a uniform manual movement. The vowels and consonants are joined, and follow each other in their natural or der, angles are rare. These, and study by repetition, are the leading elements which enable a student to acquire speed in writing. Success in shorthand depends largely upon the interest taken in it by the student. This success is a valuable accomplishment and a means of mental culture. BOOKKEEPING Bookkeeping possesses personal, social and economic values. Emphasis is placed on fundamental bookkeeping principles and their application to different types of personal and business records. Throughout the year the student deals with cash and budget records which include family budgets, balance sheets, household inventories, etc. They are drilled on the importance of accurate clerical work. An appreciation of business relationship is developed, and proper business traits are cultivated. All of these characteristics are given special attention so as to acquaint the student with the requirements of a business ofiice. The material studied is selected and arranged from activities within the experi- ence of students. As the student progresses, his course of study becomes more definite. At the completion of the course he has become limited toabusiness con- cern. 80 Typing Class Commerce OFFICE PRACTICE Office Practice is a course open to seniors who have had at least one year of shorthand and two years of typing. It is offered primarily to students who are commerce majors and who intend to secure a position in the business world. The course offers the students an opportunity to maintain shorthand and typing skills that he has acquired prior to en- tering the course. Skills in shorthand, business English, spelling, typ- ing, and secretarial arithmetic are furthered. This course, through the content taught, attempts to acquaint the student with office routine. Through the use of a workbook the student gains experience in per- forming the many duties required of a stenographer and secretary. A complete course in indexing and filing is studied the first quarter. Dupli- cating, telegraphic service, telephoning and receiving callers, preparing bills and statements, financial forms, legal forms, travel information, transportation of goods, outgoing and incoming mail are other units studied in the course. Preparation for job-finding and the job-finding campaign are also care- fully studied. Personality development is stressed throughout the en- tire course. At the completion of the course the student should be thor- oughly familiar with office practice. S1 ' K V . ,W ,,' , is Q Q. Wlllll I 4 , . -f, f.

Though classes at present are limited to the mem- bers of the Freshman class, all high school girls would profit through taking regular gym work. Our activities in girls' physical education for this year include condi- tioning exercises and running at all seasons, as well as certain seasonal activities. In the fall months these activities are: long ball, kick ball, dodge ball, softball, unorganized games, and relays. In winter we learn how to play basketball, taLle tennis, shuffleboard, badminton and other recreational games. In the spring we have tumbling, marching, hiking and either softball or field ball. Wherever possible, various kinds of tourneys are held in a class or between teams from different gym classes. A "round robin" tournament among class basketball teams, and an elim- ination tourney in table tennis furnish much interest and enjoyment. 85 I Physical Education Girls' Physical Education Class BOYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Calisthenics is performed for the purpose of attaing four recognized objectives. They are briefiy stated as follows: The development and maintenance of body health. The development and maintenance of good body me hanics. The development and maint enance of body suppleness. The development and maintenance of body control. The physical training periods of three times a week are used chiefly for the teaching and practice of fundamental skills and techniques, the focus of attention being the improvement of performance. Ample opportunity, however, is provided for all boys to participate in games and sports under normal conditions of play in order that permanent interests of a recreational character may be established. The physical education periods supplement the work of the classroom teachers in health instruction. Many times the pupils find daily use in practical situations for many health facts acquired th rough formal and informal health instruction. Boys' Physical Education Class i sn: Coaching Staff g . Alf! . . ya Serving his first year as head coach in all sports, Mr. Dozier has maintained the high standards of sportsmanship and fine play always shown by M. T. H. S. athletes. Form- erly a star athlete at Mt. Carmel High School and Carthage College, he has an excellent background to serve in his position. Mr. Dozier produced aggressive, hard lighting teams which were respected and feared by all opponents. Mr. Dozier Returning to our coaching staff again this year after serving in the same capacity in 1923-27, "Pop" helped guide the destiny of the Red Devils of 1944-45. Working mainly with the Freshman and Sophomore teams, he has trained many boys who will be seen on our varsity squads within the next two or three years. We are glad to have "Pop" lmclc with us again. 87 Mr. Etherton Captain Art darcinkoska Quarterback aptain-Elect Leroy Q Lehmann Tackle 5.

M. T. H. S. is famous in southern Illinois as the "football school", Winning football teams have been a tradition. The team this year won five games, tied two, and lost only one game. It was a team to be feared and respected by all its opponents. Many of the team's followers believe that if Marcinkoska, backfield star and field general, had not been lost to the team in the opening minutes of the West Frank- fort game, Murphysboro would have again been among the undefeated teams of southern Illinois. Marcinkoska suffered a broken collar bone in this game and was unable to play the rest of the season. This year plays had to be clever and deceptive, rather than powerful because the team was a light one. In practically every game the Red Devils were outweigh- ed by their opponents but they played alert, aggressive football all season. Much of the credit for the team's line playing must go to Coach Steve Dozier and his assist- ant, "Pop" Etherton. Dozier was serving his first year as head coach and turned in a fine job.
