The school was dedicated to guide and instruct the students who would enter her portals then and in the future. The school has not failed in this manifest duty. Her constant progress in all respects is truly character- istic of the great men and women who found- ed her. The school commands a place in the hearts of all alumni. We, the staff, are honored to have the privilege of dedicating this annual to our first half-century of progress: progress that was brought about by the students and administrators of the past. Not merely with words do we dedicate this book, but with a deep, sincere feeling in our hearts and a devotion to our schoo1's honored tradition. The following pages are hereby dedicated to an account of th-is progress.

T. H. S. was only a dream in one man's heart. He could toresee the value to the entire township of having a high school. Its influence would extend not only to the students but also, through them. to their parents and neighbors. So this man, Ellis ll, Rogers, formerly a superintendent, of Murphysboro City Schools, began with patient et't'ort to sell his idea to the leading citizens of Olll' city. lle pointed out the advantage of having a school t'or the high school pupils only, who then were forced to attend school with grade school pupils. ln a new building the students could conduct their activities, sports, plays. etc., with no fear of disturbing the grade school pupils. Ltlr. Rogers pointed out to citizens the advantage of an auditorium for their plays and graduations. lle reminded them ot' the first formal graduation in 1800. There was only one pupil i11 this class and she was determined to have a formal graduation. This necessitated a special meeting of the board ot' education to approve the plan to appropriate five dollars to rent a hall for the graduation. The first thing to be accomplished. through the persistent efforts of lllr. Rogers, was a general election held at the court house on Saturday, April 14, 1900. for the purpose of voting for or against a proposition to establish a township high school. The p1'oposition carried. The second accomplishment was the election of the first hoard ot' education for a township high school. The third step toward the accomplishment of the goal set by lllr. Rogers was an election to vote for or against a proposition to issue bonds to the amount of 5l422,000 for the erection and equipment ot' a suitable building. The bond issue was voted on and carried. A tract ot' three and onerhalt' acres of ground, located in the Clarke and Logan addition to the city of Murphysboro, belonging to Tom Logan, and adjoining Logan Park, was chosen as the site for the building. In 19210 the State ot' Illinois selected this campus as the appropriate spot for the location ot' the .lohn A. Logan memorial. The plans for the building were prepared by .Xlr. .l. IJ. Drake ot' Alurphysboro, The contract for the erection ot' the building was awarded to Messrs. Russell, Drake and Vo. January 11, 1901, who immediately began the work of construction. The t'irst building was erected in the center of a huge campus. llere, in the midst of this large tract ot land. the new building seemed a lonesome object. The townspeople wondered why a big new school was being built "way out in the country." M. T. H.

T. H. S. The teachers who served under him on the first faculty were Roscoe C. McCormick, Mrs. Kate Chapman, and Aneta Baldwin. To Mr. Rogers, undoubted- ly, goes the honor of the title, "FATHER OF M. T. H. S." Mr. Rogers served as principal here until 1905, when he moved to Everett, Washington, where he had been elected principal of the high school. When Mr. Rogers left, the board of education chose Mr. Edwin E. McLaughlin to fill the office of principal. Mr. McLaughlin spent the years from 1905-1907 here as principal. "As an ardent advocate of prac- tical education he succeeded in introducing into the High School manual training and other practical activities." Following Mr. McLaughlin as principal was Mr. Edward E. Van Cleve. During his three years at M. T. H. S., from 1907 to 1910, efforts were made to beautify the campus. Trees that were selected for variety and were typical of the native woods of Southern Illinois were planted and are now flour- ishing in full maturity. It was during Mr. Van Cleve's term as principal that the teacher who is probably the best known of any to the people of Murphysboro first came to M. T. H. S. - Miss Anna Taggart. She is prob- ably best remembered as a Latin teacher. Miss Taggart was an outstanding teacher and a leading, civic-minded citizen of Murphysboro for thirty-one years. During these years she was also an able assistant to the principals: Mr. Todd, Mr. Caldwell, and Mr. Nicholas. Upon her retirement in 1940 she spent several years in Murphysboro and then moved to Carthage, Missouri, but still has retained a warm friendship for and an interest in Murphysboro, its citizens, and its activities. When Mr. Van Cleve left M. T. H. S., Mr. G. J. Koons, the assistant principal, was promoted to the office of principal. He remained here from 1910 to 1917. In March, 1911, the school was first placed on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Mr. Koons saw the need for landscaping the campus and, by acting promptly, was able to secure expert help for this work from the University of Illinois. The campus was allowed to be a project for the University's Agriculture School. Students, under the guidance of an instructor, visited the campus and recommended a plan. The only expense to the school was the cost of shrubs. Following Mr. Koons, Mr. A. N. Thurston was principal of the high school. Mr. Thurston's work began in the fall of 1910. Chemistry, physics, physiology, and physical geography were his principal subjects. He taught some agriculture as well as assisting in coaching basketball and baseball. In 1917 Mr. Thurston was appointed principal of the high school, which position he held one year. On leaving the high school Mr. Thurston was appointed chemist for the Ohio State Board of Health at Columbus, Ohio. The new principal of M. T. H. S. was Idr. M. N. Todd. Since the years he was in Murphysboro were filled with exciting events, perhaps, they can best be told in his own words. "I was recommended as one capable for the position by a former superintendent of mine who was also at one time principal of M. T. H. S. I refer to Mr. E. E. Van Cleve. "The school's enrollment increased rapidly from about four hundred students to five hundred and fifty. More room was needed and the Home Economics Building was erected in 1920 at a cost of :B8,500. By 1923 the enrollment was past the six hundred mark. The crowded condition demanded more room and modern buildings, and so the board invited the alumni, business and professional men and women, the editors of the local papers to visit the school for observation. Later a mass- meeting was held and the board, acting on the wishes of the meeting, asked the voters to confirm a bond issue of 3150.000 It cariied and two large and excellent buildings were erected. "Now let us leave the building feature and enumerate the respects in which M. T. H. S. can be classified as the pioneer school of Southern Illinois. It has the honor of ranking among the first of the schools to expand the cu1'riculum in the following ways: the first or second township high school, since one other high school claims the same honorg first to establish the Smith-Hughes Home Economics corrsesg second school to establish a full time accredited teacher for girls' physical education, first high school in the United States to establish an extensive laboratory for testing poul- try for egg-laying characteristicsg first to establish a slide rule for valuating school grades on individual differences and probability curve, and first school in Illinois to establish on a permanent basis the forty-five minute nine-period day. M. T. H. S. did boast of the largest art display of oil paintings and prints in the halls of the school, but most of these were destroyed by the tornado. -"Inf1918 football was organized when very few schools had reinstated it after the war. As for bas- ketball we had no gym so the friends down town made up a purse of 5400 and the school had a pie- social which netted another S400 with which they remodeled the Old Pavilion in Logan Park by arch- ing the ceiling. "Then came the tornado of March 18, 1925. The Old Central building was entirely destroyed and much damage was done to the other three buildings. Fortunately the board carried S125,000 tornado Page Eight 1950 Crimson ami Corn ...-..-.,-.,-..-..-..-.......-,.-..-..-.-..-..-..-......-.,-..-..-......-.,-..-......-.....,-..-..-..-.,-..-..-.,- insurance which was secured only a few months before. and the State Legislature allotted tFtiT.000 for rehabilitation. The records will show that 55.500 was returned to the state. School opened within a tnonth under very unfavorable conditions. The motto ran: DOWN, HUT NOT OUT. Let me pause one moment to pay homage to the three fellow students who lost their lives in the debris. "Those nine years at Murphysboro Township lligh School were the best 111111 most ambitious years ot' my life." Mt. Atvel taldwell tollowed Mr. Todd as principal of lll. T. ll. S. Ile remained here from the year 1027 to 1029. Whcn Lllr. Caldwell left .llurphysboro, Mr. Albert Nicholas came to take over his office. llc be- came principal in the fall ot' 1020. That was the year of the beginning ot' the era known as the de- pression. The enrollment of the school was down to 400 and finances were difficult. Many schools in Southern Illinois were unable to pay their teachers during the next several years. but Alurphysboro was fortunate in being able to pay the teachers at all times. lluring his seventeen years as principal of ill. T. H. S. the enrollment rose from 400 to 6210, wl1ic11 is still thc record. Mr. Nicholas and his staff of teachers broadened tl1e curriculum during the years from 19250 to lil-tti, They developed the music department to a fuller extent, added metal shop, brought back foods which had been dropped out some years before, added photography, psychology, and office practice. XVhile Mr. Nicholas was in alurphysboro. he was president ot' the Illinois State lligh School Prin- cipals' Association t'or three years and was also president of the Southern Division of the Illinois Edn- cational Association. Mr. Nicholas was an active member of many local clubs and civic organizations. In both music and athletics the school won many championships during those seventeen years. Two ot' the most outstanding football teams were the championship teams of 19210 and 1042. ln music the outstanding year was 15140 when the band went to the national contest at Kansas City. When Mr. Nicholas left Murphysboro to go to Anna, Mr. Fred Shappard came here from Marion to fill the position as principal. There have been some minor changes during Mr. Shappard's term as principal here, such as adding civics as a required subject, but the major change is the construction work going on at the present time. To the old building we are adding a new gymnasium, a cottage t'or the home economics department with the band room in the basement. and a new building for the manual training department. Through one-half century of progress M. T. ll. S. has developed into its appearance ot' today. with its impressive building, extensive equipment. beautiful campus, and modern stadium. lloards. facul- ties. engineers with their corps ot' workers and, most i1nporta11t as well as most mnnerous. the total student enrollment have each contributed to the development ot' tl1e school today.

These nien, giving freely ot their time, receive no remuneration otheigythan the satisfaction of rendering u valuable service to their fellow citizens. We feel that the work of the board could be better snnnnarized in the innnortul words of the Eng- lish soldier and poet, Sir Philip Sidney: "Doing good is the only certainly happy action of at l1lll11'S life."

Ardis Smith Vice-President . . Bill Replogle Secretary . Mary Jean McIntyre CLASS SPONSERS Mrs. Emma S. Hough, Miss Louise Templeton Mrs. May V. Waite, Mr. John Wathen We, the class of 1950, are proud of our illustrious record. We feel that ours is no ordinary chronicle. Members of our class have been outstanding in athletics and music as well as other extra-curricular activities. Several of our number have had .exceptional scholastic records. Our four years at M. T. H. S. have been pleasant ones, indeed, and it is with regret that we leave behind our close friendships and pleasant associations which have brought us so much joy. Our class this year has 112 members. This is a great contrast to the class of 1902-nineteen in number-the first to be graduated from our present high school. These Seniors of 1902 were as follows: Anna Armstrong CMrs. Jonesl John Atkinson Maude Burroughs QMrs. Armstrongl Lelia Clark fMrs. Lee Picklerl Scott Cleland ' Ellery Deason Winnie Etherton QMrs. Boyd Thorpl Thomas W.

Charlotte Bean CLASS SPONSORS Mr. Maple Joyce Mr Ronald Weiss, Mrs. Elma Dey N SE The class of '51, which has 117 members in contrast to the sixteen Juniors of 1902, is a t5 pical example of the progress of M. T. H. S. Our class has been outstanding in the many activities of M. T. H. S. A large number of students are taking a great interest in musical activities and many Junior athletes are gaining recognition in the iield of sports. Four Junior girls have been cheerleaders for the past two years. One of the biggest undertakings of the Junior Class is the financing and planning of the annual Junior-Senior Prom. The money needed for this tribute to the Seniors is raised by the soda and candy stands. The proceeds represent many hours of hard work at football and basketball games and during noon hours at school. As in the past, the greatest aim of the Junior class is to try not only to equal but also to excel the record of the Senior Class, and, with this thought in mind, we shall do our best to uphold the high standards of former classes of M. T. H. S. -Paula June Strohm, '51 I il litbllllllilblilillll itbllllUi0CD0lIlilPilli0l1li0l0illQ4lCOQilQ1lQ1lQ1lQ4DQlPQOQ1li liliil Page FOYW-YJWO "Youth is the opportunity to do so1n1'tl1xinq and to become somebody."-Mzmger 1950 fD'l.Hl-V011 and Cr-rn - .lvl-11'--rs p- -1- -1- -1- -1--1--3--3 -1- -1- -3- -1- -1- -1- -1- -1-- 1- -1- -2- -1--1--1--3--3 -1- -3- -1--3 -1- -1- -3--3 -1- -3. -1- -1- IIAIKRY Al-LAIRD l'Il.lZAl1IC'l'll AlilHCl'l'IGll SVZANNE ASHINIAN l'Il.OlSl'I ISALSANO J. l'.

At present there are 145 Sophomores as compared to the relatively small number of thirty-six in 1902. This i representative of the steady growth of M. T. H. S. We are very proud to have in our class students outstanding in sports and several outstanding in scholarship. We hope to gain even greater prominence among our contemporaries in the various fields of extra-curricular activities . Though we are unable to assume many responsibilities until we are upper-class men, we are justly proud of our record thus far. We feel sure our class will maintain its impressive record and rank among the notable classes to be graduated from M. T. H.

This team was a fine track team. The boys who participated had to buy their own equipment and provide their own transportation to meets. A coach was a luxury that the boys could only dream about. Though track was the only school sport until 1918, other sports such as basketball and football were carried on independently by the students. The first "gymnasium" was the Logan Park pavilion. The pavilion was used mainly for dances, but it served many other purposes also. The roof was supported by four posts running the length of the building. To say the least, these posts made basketball playing difficult. But we can be sure that the boys were proud of their pavilion. X When sports other than track were organized after 1918, our team joined the Southern Conference. The team played in the conference until 1939, when the Southwest Egyptian Conference was organ- ized. Murphysboro is still a member of the conference along with Pinckneyville, Sparta, Chester, Du Quoin, Carbondale, and Anna-Jonesboro. When thinking of the outstanding teams produced during these fifty yea1's, everyone will un- doubtedly recall that unbeaten-untied-unscored-upon football season in 19474948. and the year that our basketball boys went to the state tournament. These are, however, only two of the many seasons from 1900 to 1950 that Murphysboro has excelled both in the quality of its teams and the sportsman- ship of HS mms and Students' Willard Rhine, '50 Kenneth Stewart, '50 Inside view of pavilion after remodeling in 1918.

For the fourth consecutive year the Murphysboro Red Devils reign as champions of the Southwest Egyptian Conference-a record unequaled by ony other team in the conference. Although the total points scored by the opposition exceeded the total points scored by the Red Devils, they finished the season with 5 wins, 2 ties, and 2 defeats, a surprising record considering the loss of nineteen lettermen from last year's squad. The Red Devils' first loss came at the hands of Mooseheart, a powerful upstate team. This loss was the first since the last game of the '45 season. The fifteen lettermen who will return next season should form the nucleus of a team which will continue to be the dominating team of the conference. boiwximlinrioioiuinioioq BASKETBALL The 1949-50 basketball season was definitely one of the most eventful and successful seasons en- joyed at M. T. H. S. for a long time. The Red Devils easily won the conference championship and were at one time rated as the eighth best team in the state by the United Press poll. In the five games lost it would be significant to note that the differences between the opponents' and Niurphy's scores totaled only seven points. In the regional tournament the team defeated Carbondale's Terriers and Herrin's Tigers to play Marion in the finals. The fans expected Marion and Murphysboro to play a close game, but by the fourth quarter our full second squad was getting tournament experience. ' I The Reql Devils entered the sectional tournament at Marion with the first place trophy and a berth in the state contest as the victor's spoils. The first game with Anna-Jonesboro was nearly over- looked by the fans in great anticipation of the final game against Johnston City. Receiving news that the varsity guard, Bob Jewell, would be out of the line-up due to an appendicitis attack obviously had shaken the boys a bit, for they started very slowly in the first quarter. The Red Devils kept pace with Johnston City for the next two quarters but remained behind because of the lead established by Johnston City in the first period. Many sport experts say that the fourth quarter was the most ex- citing and most bitterly fought period seen in Southern Illinois basketball this year. However, the final whistle found the Indians ahead by a one point margin. 0 'K Q1:initbillillililh11h20i4lZll1010i0i014l10lllil!1tDi1Pifllllillliiillilllililliililbiflllillillblll Page Sixty-nine 1950 Crimson and Corn p ni ui: 1 1 1 1 3 1 1 1 311 201411f3oio1uio1o3nr1u1 is in in in 11:21:31 10141101411 0 COACHING STAFF F Left to right-Assistant Coacl1 Elmer Ziegler, Coach Eddie Bencini, Assistant Coach Steve Dozier E. L. "DOC" BENCINI, COACH Mr. Bencini became head coach at M. T. H. S. in 1942. His previous coaching experience had been as coach at Biggsville, Illinois, and as assistant coach at Murphysboro. He was an outstanding ath- lete when he attended Murphysboro High School a11d at Monmouth College where he won three ma- jor awards in both football and basketball. His impressive record at M. T. H. S. speaks for his coach- ing ability. Excluding the two years that he was in the armed forces, Mr. Bencini's football teams have won 61 games, tied 4, and lost 7. ln basketball the record is 132 wins and 80 losses. STEVE DOZIER, ASSISTANT COACH Mr. Dozier has been on the coaching staff since 1942. He had had no previous experience in the coaching field. However, his athletic background made him well-qualified for the position. He had been a star athlete at Mt. Carmel High School and Carthage College before becoming a member of the M. T. H. S. faculty in 1930. For a period of two years during the war he served as head coach in the absence of Mr. Bencini, who was in the service in 1944-1945. ELMER ZIEGLER, ASSISTANT COACH Mr. Ziegler was a member of the graduating class of '39. Besides being valedictorian, he had won letters in football and basketball. He became teacher and coach at M. T. H. S. in 1947 after serving in the armed forces. Since then he has done a remarkable job of teaching the boys the funda- mentals and preparing them for the first squad. In addition he has served as coach of the tennis team. 5-l1o1n1n1u1o2 3 31031 11111219 1 1:11 1 1 1:1 111 1121211 1131111 14,1101 Page Seventy L 1950 Crzfnmon and Corn Dui--ini-riuiuituitvi-yioioioit:itvituioioiuiuinrioiuin'initlioiuioitI1-uinxioioioioiod VARSITY FOOTBALL SQUAD Ifirst row 'f'U2ll'll lienvini, Kenneth Runvk.

His rugged defensive play was an important factor leading to the success of the team. Joe has two major letters to his credit. Richard captained the '49 team and did a fine job. "Dick" handled all the kicking assignments and bore the brunt of the running attack. For his efforts he received honorable mention on the All- State team.

Donald started the Sparta game and also saw action in most of the other games. He should find a place in the line next year. Kenneth drew a starting assignment in games the latter part of the season. Barring injuries, he should be an outstanding lineman next year. Joe was the only sophomore to win a major letter. His running ability makes him a fine prospect for the coming season. miiemioioioiuioiui 1 20111 1:1112 2111111111111 1 1 1111101 11312 1 1 1 irq Page Seventy-eight S1 .- 1950 Crfnlson and Corn -1-11--1--1-vi-'ini-111-11-1--1--:nil-1-11-1-wznii-ini-uxnxu q 1--:wx--1-vi-11011-gnxuiuiuii in FIIICSI I MAN-SOPHOMORE FOOTBALL SQUAD , ,,,,, .......L, ,, ..

Qt111nitrioioioioioinioq A few students interested in the natural history of southern Illinois formed. in the spring of 1946. an organization sponsored by the lliology department. the Audubon Biology Club. They affiliated with the Illinois State luuior .tvazlemy ot' Stienee and began to study individually, or in groups oi' two or three students, the natural history of plants and animals in Jackson and surrounding counties. l'rojec'ts in lu-redity. embryology. an.1 nutrition were also started. After three years of study, more ot' them carried on in t'ield studies. Preliminary loval surveys have been llliltle of fish. illllllllllblil. rep- tiles, birds, and inset-ts. Plant studies have been made in mushrooms, ferns, flowering plants and trees. Notebooks. vollet-tions, charts. and other projevt displays have been prepared to take to distrirt and state meetings ot' the Junior Avadeniy held eavh year at the same time as the Illinois State At-adeiuy meeting. Always the .Xntlubon liiology Club has stressed accuracy of information and et'- fevtive presentation in its displays. and this has brought a majority of first division awards to the participating students. The svhool and the vlub were both honored at tl1e 15149 state meet when liill Hofmann, the club president ot' last, year, was chosen state student president of the Junior Academy of Science. Medals t'or outstanding work in scienee at-tivities are given eaeh year to the advanced students of the elub. These medals are presented to the students by Miss Smith on behalf of the sc-hool. Students receiving these awards have been Hob Mohlenbroek, Bill Hofmann, and Kenneth Stewart.. pt11--1--it-1014'14111-1--3-11-'it-2-iozogogogogtli-gui-litlg-li.lg.litli-1213-aio?-'Qui-rx-I1-iq "Sr:irf1Lf:1' is orgrtnizzsfl knott'lf'rIgv.,'-S11r'nwer.

Hofmann. This project was begun to make an extensive and authentic report on the reptiles and amphibians of southern Illinois. In the past two years this work has been compiled into an illustrated notebook. A live exhibit of representative reptiles and amphibians was also entered as a project. This material took one outstanding and four first awards at the state meets. Tree Survey. - Kenneth Stewart and Robert Mohlenbrock. The purpose of the tree survey was to find and classify all arborescent plant species in- digenous to the eleven southernmost counties of Illinois. After this was done, the next problem was to give the findings of the sur- vey in an effective display. The pictured dis- play was taken to the district and state con- tests, where it won outstanding awards. Heredity Project. Mary Jean Mclntyre. This project concerns color inheritance, one phase of heredity. It consists of charts show- ing the results of numerous experiments to test and confirm the theories of Gregor Men- del, who formulated the Laws of Dominance and Segregation. These laws give the ratio of the appearance of dominant and recessive characteristics in the first and second gen- eration, and enable one to predict accurately the color of both hybrid and purebred off- spring. 1111111-'ini vi-'ions-rio:--1:11 11- 1 viozoi-ri 1950 Crinlson and Corn, pt'11-1oz-fioioi-,init-1-.1--1-:oil-quiI1--1-11-iz-1.1101-ag.-101-txtlimi-t1o1.t1o3t-1--1--1--3--Q F.

The main activity of the 1947 organization was basketball. In addition to basketball the program for '49 and '50 consists of volleyball, softball, and tennis. Two meetings are held a month - one program centers around the sports of the season, the other is merely business. - With the turn ol' the new year came It new G. A. A. sponsor, Mrs. Lois Neihans, replacing the cap- able founder. Mrs. Neihans arrived at the completion of the volleyball tournament and at the beginning of basketball. The remainder of the year's program has been planned by Mrs. Neihaus.

S. - 1950 ln accordance with the theme of this book, it is fitting and proper to include a history of mus"' at M. T. H. S., which plays a prominent part in our activities at school. In the early years of the school, choral, vocal music, and occasional small orchestras made up the music program of M. T. H. S. The first orchestra, comprised of eighteen pieces, was started approxi- mately in 1918 under the direction of Miss Florence Hanson of Chicago. In 1923, however, she resigned her position and was succeeded by Miss Belle Longbons. The first band was formed during Miss Longbons's five year stay here and increased steadily in membership until in 1930, when Mr. Andrew Mikita took over the position as director of a band totaling fifty members. During this time the chorus also played an active part in the music program. Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs were perhaps the largest and the most popular clubs at M. T. H. S. Thus the first chapter in the history of music at M. T. H. S. was recorded. After doing wonders for the band in the one year he was here, Mr. Mikita left, and the sixty-five piece band came under the baton of one of the best directors M. T. H. S. has ever had, Howard Thrailkill. Under his influence the band responded by winning first at the district contests between 1933 and 1937. From this impressive record, Mr.Thrai1ki11 was gaining recognition as the most outstanding band director in Southern Illinois. In 1940 the band followed its usual procedure of winning first at district and state, and on the strength of this was recommended to go to the National Band Contest at Kansas City. Here it was placed in second division. This has been the greatest achievement made by the band in the his- tory of M. T. H. S. A After successfully directing the band for eleven years, Howard Thrailkill left M. T. H. S. in 1942 to join the navy and was succeeded by Mr. Carl Kiefer and Mr. Leland Grizzell. During the war years, 1943 to 1946, the band contests were discontinued because of the difficulty of transportation, but in 1947, under the leadership of Leland Grizzell, the band again resumed its prac- tice of going to contests, where it placed in second division. Mr. Grizzell resigned his position at M. T. H. S. in 1948 to continue his studies at the University of Illinois. He was succeeded by Mr. Edward Harn, our present director. The year 1949 was perhaps as important a date in the history of music at M. T. H. S. as the year 1940. In this year the band won first division at the district contest and was classed as the most outstanding band represented. It advanced to the state contest and won first division there. And now for the year 1950-the progression of music here at M. T. H. S. has reached the half-century mark. Only the participants of a band have experienced the spine-tingling effect given by a snappy roll-off into "Illinois Loyalty" as they come marching proudly onto the football field. So it is with pride that we of the Annual Staff dedicate this history to each member of the band from the time it had eighteen pieces to its present membership of sixty-three. May the next fifty years of music at M. T. H. S. be as progressive and gratifying as the first fifty have been.

Library, located in the rear of the large study hall, is easily accessible to all pupils and teachers. All books that are used in the school are handled through the , library. Not merely a storehouse of books, however, it has become a service agency for answering questions, a center for free reading of books and magazines, and a place for in- struction in the use of the card catalogue and location of books. Anticipating an enlarged audio-visual program, the library also main- tains a file of information on films and filmtsrips which are available for classroom use. Student assistants perform a valuable serv- ice in checking out, locating. and shelving 1 books. As a special project this year, the student librarians are making an index to all of the individual short stories which are in the various collection in the library. These students make up the Library Club. Shown in the upper left picture they are as follows: first row fleft to rightb-Kathryn Baskin. Shirley Baskin, Dorothy Richrockg second row-Mrs. Emma S.
