THE SB H H 1954 MUSTANG Just as an athlete was never made by mere instruction, so school spirit is not defined by mere words. BH9HHR ■ ' V UP - tP ; A At Myers Park High, we have taken a lot of loyalty, added the quality of being helpful, tried to be considerate of others, topped it with going that " extra mile " to see a job well done and summed it all up so that whenever the name Myers Park High is mentioned our enthusiasm soars. That is our school spirit! " There is a destiny that makes us brot None goes his way alo hat we send into the lives of others Comes back unto our own. " Annual Publication of MYERS PARK HIGH SCHOOL Charlotte, North Carolina Business Manager Advertising Manager I ■oxd aihouflht reap an act, reap a habit; ou) a habit, reap a character; ou) a character reap a AesKiny! i ♦ FOREWORD We enclose, with a reasonable amount of pride, the " hoof-prints " that we have left at Myers Park High 1953-54. " Hoof-prints " of all Mustangs remain as a wise man once said, " whether we will it or not, we cannot journey through life without leaving foot prints " . Let us " harness " the forces of good that have been our privilege at Myers Park and " saddle " the best qualities we possess for better things to come; so that our " hoof -prints " will always remain a symbol of that which is good to all the classes that follow. Classes Activities Athletics Features " iSKB!? " ' Page Seven Miss Oma Laff erty The Myers Park Mustangs join others in believing that earth ' s great treasures lie in human personality, and that service to humanity is the best work of life. Therefore to Miss Oma Lafferty we, the Senior Class, dedicate our 1954 Mustang knowing well the services she has performed for us and the work she has done to make us better students. We will always treasure her friendship and feel richer for having known her. Page Eight Page Nine Page Ten Mr. Robert W. Whetstone Mr. J.

Conscientious and thorough in his duties he was a part of our school. Even more — he was one of us. Page Thirty Four SENIOR CLASS POEM Lordly, supremely, we gaze over this our domain. Today, holding hopefully to a fleeting moment of achievement Tomorrow, grasping, groping for a niche in the universe; We will be nothing more than novices at living. But by working, hoping, failing, ever perserving; Then slowly, surely, steadily we shall climb Until at last we approach our self-appointed goal. If we undertake our task with all our vigor, And if God has given us a spark of genius, Then, perhaps, somewhere, small and insignificant, We shall partially impart towards lasting peace For which the world will long remember this — our generation. But let it be known that the road will not be straight. For searching, searching, ever eager, striving onward, Always trying, sometimes failing, here is the course — Will it bring peace to this chaotic world?

Miss Curry wants to see you! " How many times has a stu- dent at M. P. H. heard that startling phrase? Every afternoon, not including the free periods of some of its enthusiastic staff members, the annual editors locked themselves in their workshop and prepared big secrets for the ' 54 yearbook. Lights, Cameras, Action, a bent back loaded with camera equip- ment, a puzzled expression, long legs pacing up and down our campus — this was the familiar figure of our one and only, faithful, Toe. " I ' ve got to have a note to get out of fourth period. " David always left, but returned with an ad to brighten the future of the Mustang. With " Buck " striving to get new ideas and Annette keeping account of its money, the annual slowly began to take a new shape. Six full months were spent trying to mold a yearbook that would meet the standards of our outstanding school. These months were filled with deadlines not met, yet some met; big ideas not realized, yet others realized late hours; and in a few misguided moments, short tempers; but we know as we look at the outcome, every minute ' s work was worth the finished product.

These inspiring phrases rang throughout the whole gym that fateful morning, bringing with them the tense ex- citement, the throbbing hearts, the crossed fingers. This marked the beginning for ten seniors — the beginning as a member of Myers Park ' s most esteemed club — The National Honor Society. Each old member searched frantically through the throng of students, choosing his certain subject. A tap on the shoulder, the hopeful glance — some wishes answered . . . some not. The Honor Society set up a scholarship to give to the most deserving members of the Senior Class. They have made plans for a Junior High Honor Society, and set up a Book Committee to increase our library col- lection. We are as proud of our Ho nor Society as its members are to belong to such an organ- ization.

Buildings, trees, mountains — in fact, most any- thing might catch the interests of the budding artists at Myers Park. If you happen to be walking between the buildings during classes, you might see this in- dustrious group seated on a bank sketching scenery. Fortunately, the Palleteers do not keep all of theii work entirely to themselves, but have shared their creations with the rest of the school by showing them in the display cases of L. A. These displays not only brighten our halls, but give us an idea of what our future artists of America are doing and learning.

The Mustangs opened their season against North High and were overpowered by the Rebels, 14-7, with David Busbin and Kenny Foard running very well for the Mustangs. Following the pattern of the week before, the Mustangs met defeat at the hands of Monroe, 13-6. Myers Park tasted victory for the first time as they beat East High 13-7. After a slow start the Mustangs caught fire with a 78 yard run by Foard. Eddie Lowe, Gregory LeNeave, and Paul Biggers led the way in the line. Harding, the State AA champions, defeated the Mustangs in the following game. But the Mustangs were not to be discouraged and in their next game turned loose a bevy of fast-stepping backs and sup- porting students on China Grove to trounce them 2 8-6. Kenny Foard, Ernest Young, and John Black all made long runs for touchdowns with Larry Harris adding the extra p oints.

Co-Captains Verner Stanley Pat Gregory Coach Tom Braaten JUNIOR HIGH The Junior High Football Team, led by the new coach, Tom Braaten, won the City Championship with a record of three wins, one loss, and two ties. The squad opened its season on October 3 against A. G. with the game ending in a 6-6 tie. Then on October 8, they rolled over Tech by a 26-6 margin. They next defeated Piedmont 13 to 6. The Colts suffered their lone defeat at the hands of Harding 12 to 0. On October 29 they again met A. G. in a heartbreaking scoreless tie. The Juniors ended the season by again beating Tech 13-0. Ed Gallagher paced the year ' s scoring with 36 points. He was the big gun both in points and yards for the Colts. Stuart Cook with 1 6 points and Larry Rogers with 6 points figured in the Colt gridiron parade also. The team spirit displayed throughout the season by the entire squad, played an important part in making the dream of a city championship become a reality. Colts return kickoff 37 yards.

Myers Park Track Team— 1953 In 1953 their second year of track com- petition, the Myers Park Mustangs, coached by Mr. Bill Thomason, turned up with a mediocre season. They lost to Central High in a dual meet, took a third behind Central and North in the City-County meet, and came in second in a triangular contest with North and Tech. They then went out of town to take their first and last win from Hickory and Cherry- ville. In the GCAA meet at Davidson they took another third, behind East and North. Trailing behind Central, Salisbury-Boyden, and Burlington-Williams, they tied for a fourth place with East High in the Queen City Relays. At the state meet in Chapel Hill they took a seventh place resulting from two seconds taken by Vance Houston. The Mustangs were sparked by Vance Houston, a fleet-footed sophomore, who scored slightly more than thirty-eight per- cent of the team ' s points, 73 out of 192. Houston won the 100 yard dash four times, tied for first once, and took seconds twice. Lettering in 195 3 were Houston, Bachman Doar, Chuck Nesbit, Norman Purdue, Jim Malcolm, Leon Bailey, Bill Graham, Ray Linker, Earnest Young, and Ken Foard. Our cinder man wins again.

Page One Hundred Thirty Seven History of the Class of 1954 A class of sophomores congregated in the Myers Park High School Library Wednesday, September 5, 195 1. Although puzzled ex- pressions were evidence of extremely mixed emotions, there was one common feeling of pride among the group. We, the Class ot ' 54, will be the first real graduating class of Myers Park High School. We received our home- room assignments and attempted to trans- late the unique code of letters and numbers which symbolized the location of our home- rooms, in order that we might become acquainted with fresh facilities, furnishings, and faculty faces. That first day at Myers Park is very clear to me, yet I find it rather difficult to recall all the important events of my high school career. This morning as I glanced through my high school souvenirs, I discovered a solution to my problem, a bundle of newspapers, slightly brown with age. In Volumes I, II, and III of the " MyerSpark, " I have an accurate record of the progress of the Class of ' 54. Let ' s explore this pile of papers and see what amaz- ing facts we can uncover. The first issue of the " MyerSpark " head- lines — " Student Body Elects Senior High Of- ficers " — In Myers Park ' s first student election we, the lowly sophomores, had an unusual privilege. A member of our class, Gerrii Smith, was elected secretary of the Student Council. This election was preparation for mammoth tasks, such as, the composition of a constitu- tion which would be followed for many years to come, the passing of rules which would govern the entire student body, and the establishment of precedents which would be handed down from year to year. Because our class was much larger than the other two senior high classes combined, our voice was extremely decisive in carrying out the tasks of organization which would so greatly influence future generations of M. P. students. Let ' s thumb through some more papers and study our class ' s organization and progress during its pioneering days. Here we are: " Sophomore Class Elects Officers. " It looks as though our rapid success and prompt forma- tion should be attributed to our competent class officers, Jack Farris, Johnny Council, Mary Jane Suttle, and Jane Sawyer, president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, re- spectively. Although some of the new MP sophomores became hopelessly lost and bitter- ly discouraged in the whirlwind of confusion, they soon found themselves by following the course charted by a well co-ordinated class. By exercising their well defined initiative, sophomores again played a large part in the organization of necessary student functions. A story announcing Myers Park ' s first cheer- leading squad reveals that of the nine cheer- leaders elected five were sophomores. How well we can picture Edith Hall, Barbara Allen, Ann Harmon, Nancy Green, and Bev erly Senna putting forth every effort to prove to other schools that a new school can have school spirit, too. A lead from a story headed " Class Beauties Elected " states: " Edith Hall and Gerrii Smith have been chosen to represent the sophomore class in the beauty section of the Mustang. " We sophomores seem to have had an abundant supply of beauty as well as leadership. Pictures of the Valentine Dance reveal that Gerrii Smith has done it again. As attendant to the Valentine Queen, Gerrii represented the sophomore class in another school-wide event. Sophomores, though young, seem to have formed a habit of frequent par- ticipation in school-wide events. Such ex- perience proved highly profitable for students planning to spend two more years molding a school ' s character. With the aid of the " MyerSpark " that un- forgettable sophomore year is beginning to form a very clear picture in our minds. We were truly pioneers, organizing student gov- ernment and clubs, guinea pigs in two hour classes, bewildered individuals on A and B days, and victims of new regulations and much undue criticism. To continue our exploration, let ' s see what events Volume II can bring to light. " Volume II, Thursday, September 4, Num- ber 1 " — Suddenly we can visualize that first day of our junior year. With the air of experienced veterans, we assembled in front of the cafeteria terrace to receive instructions and assignments. As a matter of fact, it was dur- ing this very gathering that I received this copy of the " MyerSpark. " Glancing over the lead story we well re- member the controversy it caused. The six dollar activity ticket was a headache for everyone, those selling, those buying, and those who had already spent the funds which the ticket did not bring in. Along with activity ticket plans, the " Spark " also published a letter to the student body reviewing Student Council plans for the year. In this letter the Stu- dent Council president recognized Nancy Mc- Intyre and Jimmy Jones, secretary and treasurer of the Student Council, for their contributions in pre-school planning. That year our class proved that we were also unselfish. We consented to share many of our talented juniors with the rest of the school. We not only lent Jimmy and Nancy to the Student Council, but also supplied five members of the cheerleading squad. This picture reveals that Barbara Allen, Nancy Green, Martha Ann Caldwell, Beverly Senna, and Ann Harmon were among those sparking the Mustang spirit. According to some of these heads, MP juniors were certainly collecting some honors — " Edith Hall named Carrousel Queen, " " Cath- erine Brown Elected Homecoming Queen " , " Queen Attended by Annette Shaw and Bar- bara Honey. " It looks as though Jerry Greene, Mr. Myers Park, must also be classified among the honorees. The class of ' 54 bloomed with royalty that year. We are pleased to see that our class con- tinued to make headlines — " Junior Class Officers Convene. " Accompanying fleeting glimpses of the junior class ' s schedule of events are recollections of the diligent work done by our class officers as they carried out their important tasks and worthwhile proj- ects. We will always cherish the memories of our colossal junior class follies and beautiful junior-senior. How could we forget Henry Swanzey, our hilarious follies master of cere- monies, and our realistic prom garden in the rain? Vice-president, Barbara Allen, secretary, Beverly Senna, and treasurer, Jimmy McCane, joined forces with President, Mary Jane Suttle to lead us through a most successful year. Reviewing annual plans, we have discovered that history repeats itself. Edith Hall was elected once more to furnish the junior class ' s share of beauty in the annual. As we study the photograph of our new gymnasium, we recall the pride we felt when we witnessed another portion of the blueprint for the South ' s most modern school come to life. Eagerly and extremely impatiently we awaited the opening of our new gymnasium. As we reminisce we are amazed at our numer- ous accomplishments in the field of athletics during our pre-gymnasium days. Stories covering the election of junior marshals and conference delegates and the presentation of awards signifies that our study of the MyerSpark is nearing the final issues of Volume II and the closing weeks of our mem- orable junior year. " Yarborough Goes Girls ' State, " Mary Brooks Yarborough was chosen to represent Myers Park at Girls ' State. Bob Oliver, Larry Harris, and Bachman Doar were among the delegates attending Boys ' State. As high school juniors, we were asked to select several mem- bers of our class, on the basis of outstanding leadership, to attend Girls ' and Boys ' State. As seniors our four delegates returned to Myers Park with a broader understanding of our state government and its functions. Here is an article on the Harvard Book Award presented to a junior for outstanding scholarship. We well remember how pleased we were when it was presented to Giles Floyd. Reading the story of the junior marshals brings to mind the indescribable feeling which crept over those of us who watched chief marshals, Barbara Allen and Jack Farris, lead the graduation procession of the Class of ' 53. We felt sad realizing that many of our friends were leaving us; nevertheless we also felt proud anticipating that long awaited senior year. In the fall of our senior year, the excitement ran high as usual, but the sophisticated seniors were able to curb their exuberance. After two years of experience, we quickly settled down in order to make the most of our senior year. Movements to carry out the many jobs which rested upon our shoulders, were rapidly under- way. " President Farris Announces Senior Plans " — In the September 1 issue of the ' Spark ap- peared an outline of class plans for the year. The year ' s schedule seems to be proof of thoughtful class organization and capable of- ficers. According to the ' Spark Jack was assist- ed by Bob Oliver, vice-president; Gerrii Smith, secretary; and Tommy Hayden, treasurer. Yes, we put the right foot forward and were traveling at a much swifter pace than the classes preceding us. As we review the 19 53-54 expectations of the Student Council, we conclude that it was certainly imitating our class ' s pace. The gen- erous loan which we made to the student body in ' 52 became a permanent one. Jimmy Jones, president of the Student Council, became first man in MP ' s lineup of high school students. Aiding Jimmy in retaining his number one position was Ann Harmon, Student Council " veep " . Glancing through these stories covering the organization and plans of outstanding school clubs, we recall the worthwhile extra-curric- ular activities which were offered the mem- bers of our class. Wise decisions in the election of club presidents is good explanation for the overwhelming success of our student organiza- tions. The ' Spark announced Key Club plans released by David Bradford or Monogram Club plans disclosed by Jerry Greene. It also quoted Page One Hundred Thirty Eight Honor Society plans explained by Charles Home and Girl Ambassador plans announced by Tog Sanders. That year we discovered the real meaning of strong student organizations — unification of the school, goals to encourage students to work, dependable means of sup- porting school campaigns. According to this article concerning cheer- leader anticipation for 1 9 53-54, a wise selec- tion of cheerleaders verifies that old adage, " Experience is the best teacher. " Ann Harmon, Nancy Green, Martha Ann Caldwell, and Barbara Allen presented a repeat performance to represent the senior class on the cheer lead- ing squad. Headlines: " MP Students Active in Civic Undertakings " — In the fall of our senior year, we decided to expand our scope of outside activities. We elected a Carrousel Queen and eight Junior Rotarians to represent MP in community enterprises. Harriett Hord, Betts Huntley, David Bradford, Jack Farris, Bob Oliver, Tommy Hayden, Jerry Greene, Bach- man Doar, and Jimmy Jones ventured into the public eye to add new meaning to the name Myers Park High School. Homecoming festivity announcements bring to mind recollections of the first school dance of our senior year where males discovered that " You ' ve got to be a football hero to get along with a beautiful girl. " A picture of the Home- coming Queen ' s attendants includes Jane Dick- son and Mary Jane Suttle with smiles radiating all of the old Mustang homecoming spirit. This rousing spirit became highly contagious as the Mustangs celebrated a 7 to 6 homecoming victory over Tech. In recognition for admirable qualities and outstanding school service several senior girls were selected by their fellow classmates to receive various awards. Headlines: " Nancy Mclntyre DAR Award Winner " — " Gerrii Smith Named Miss Hi Miss " — We, the seniors, chose to honor these two girls for their in- numerable accomplishments during Myers Park ' s three years of existence. A summary of sports events reveals that our 1 9 5 3 football season included five wins and five losses. Accompanying the story is a picture of three boys proudly displaying trophies which they so justly deserved. The cutline reads: " Left to right are Jimmy Jones, MP ' s most outstanding back, Kenny Foard, MP ' s most valuable player and Larry Harris, MP ' s most outstanding lineman. " Thumbing through Volume III, it has been particularly interesting to follow the work of The Mustang which was skillfully directed by " Buck " Van Every, editor. We are indeed indebted to the well co-ordinated staff of the ' 54 Mustang for supplying us with a valuable- record of our most memorable year in our high school life. Stories describing the sundial left by the Class of ' 54 and features revealing senior plans for the future indicated that our study of the accomplishments of the Class of ' 54 will soon be concluded. As graduation drew near we suddenly became aware of the numerous re- sponsibilities which had rested and would rest in the future on our shoulders. As the first class to complete three high school years at Myers Park, we had set the pace for succeeding classes. We suddenly realized that as individ- uals our post-graduation accomplishments would reflect the success of a new high school. We had met the challenge of organizing a new high school; we now faced an even greater challenge of proving that we had been suffi- ciently prepared for our tasks of the future. MyerSpark Volumes I, II, and III brought to light many interesting occurrences during our high school careers. Yet, these events which are recorded in black and white are not the only happenings which come to mind as we explore our high school memories. " The little things " which aren ' t recorded in school papers are to us a very important part of our high school years. How could we forget the messy journey from SC 1 to B 4 on rainy days . . . the bunny hop sessions at lunch . . . the Key Club sponsored caravans to football games . . . the Spring Carnivals . . . the veni- tian blind scandal . . . that familiar voice heard every Saturday over WIST, " This is Nancy Green from Myers Park " . . . riotous rebellions in the library . . . the wonderful school dances . . . the crowded parking lot on Fridays . . . the meaning of four tardies . . . the bird burying debate . . . detailed busi- ness meetings conducted during five minute homeroom periods . . . open houses sponsored by the Girl Ambassadors . . . important bulle- tin announcements which we never heard . . . Chaucer . . . cowboy and gangster days . . . Miss Markham ' s College Algebra c lasses . . . our senior banquet . . . We cannot forget these small things nor the more important ones because they were the high lights of our lives for three unforgettable years at Myers Park High.

V MUSTINGER WINS AWARD J FOR HONESTY IN REPORTING School Board Has Plan For Avoiding Confusion " This problem has had my deepest consideration and I have the solution right at my finger tips, " said Ace Pok- er, Chairman of the Bored Schule, as he called the meeting to disorder, " you gotter stack ' en. What I mean is, all students can ' t be aces, we got a full house, so we gotter beat it with a stacked straight flush. " Mr. Poker went on to elaborate in considerable detail his plan for solving the crowded conditions existing in the Mize Pok School. He explained that the school should be equipped with desks stacked one on top of each other to a height of five desks. Aye pupils would seat in the lowest deck, Bees in the second, Cees in the third, Dese (not Dose) in the fourth and Effs on dee top of the deck. Thus, space that ordinarily is used only for air would be available for education. It would also have a tendency to make parents much hap- pier as it would level out the standing of all students. Pupils in the higher education grades would have the lower grades in the classrooms and the pupils in the lower education grades would be nearer the ceiling. This type of leveling is quite in the Democratic taditions. If you wanner win you gotter staek ' em. i S The Phew-Lights-Err Award, called light because it carries little weight in the journalistic field, goes this year to the Mustinger, a scandal sheet. This publication is noted city-wide for un- school-like interest.

Opponents will be the highly touted undercats, now training in the shadows of the high tension lines on the banks of the Upper Sugaw Crick. The team from this country club is untried, having been in existence merely three years. It is expected to trail the Mus- tangs by at least foddy-two points. The Mustangs will lean on the ef- ficacy of French Dressing to secure a lot of ringers to tie down the stake in the Salad Bowl. cepted the award with a spirited dis- play of delight. " At last my snooping eye and ear has paid off, " he muttered to himself as he quickly grabbed and clutched the award to his breast. As the crys of " bravo " came from the crowd Stingaree exclaimed he had been working since the beginning of time as a scandal seeker with a scandal seeking crew to win this scandalous award. He said " None editors on this here earth or any other planet in this here uni- verse feels more proudly scandalously than me becus this here award carries none weight in thar field of mine com- petitors who are journalicimists. I left that thar field bout a centuries ago, " he went on, " when I larned only a scandal makes juicy news. Yes sir, juicy news is my business.

This is logicle enouf when you realize that the averge Mize Pok scholar treds on his shoe soles 759 times on his journey from S. C. to Bi- ology. Natcherly this doesn ' t meen rainy daze couse via walkways one wears off 1 12 27 inches of shoe leather per year, excluding Leap Year. In order to save money on shoe leather the logical thing would be to be barefooted. However that isn ' t fittin ' and proper. The next best thing would be to stay at home! But that would leave the teachers eating chalk instead of stake. The Humane Society would insist on our coming. Don ' t despair! There is yet a ray of hope. The next Mize Pok skedule will feat ure a korse in roller skating, too units in which will be necessary to graduate. By covering the kampus on skates it will be possible to reduce the es- sential record of the horologue by the diviser of the Pythagorean theorem times the actual anti-gravitation con- straint of the inert force plus the wind volisity and lo and behold — you ' ve saved time by the bucket full! That is, of course, only if you have not fallen. If such a tragedy should oc- cur you may add 16 split seconds, three bruises, and two cups of chopped celery to the forementioned with the result being your total time, energy, and vocabulary lost per spill. The main expense for this undertak- ing will be oil and insurance. Naturally the oil is for your hair, to keep it from blowing, and who would own skates that weren ' t insured. Traffic lights will be installed at all hall intersections. All entrances will be fitted out with lifts to take care of the skaters. In order to further speed transporta- tion the entire campus will be concrete. This does not make it easier to fall — believe me! Therefore the Ambassadors will rent pillows to all individuals de- siring them. Poor Tot ' s Aid Holds Worry Meet The Poor Tot ' s Aid has reached a standstill. For weeks this faithful organization has been trying desperate- ly to put an end to students who write on the blackboards. Miss Markham, a mathematics teach- er at Mize Pok, held a strong voice in this matter. Said Miss Markham, " I want to see this silly scribbling on school slates stopped before they drive me crazy! " This caused an ululant up- roar among the parents and teachers. Miss Markham went on to say that Nancy Adams, a jaunty jussive juven- ile, had succeeded in making this " greenboard art " a fad. Groups were formed in order that they might worry long enough to come to a conclusion. When all the ideas were collected and combined, the re- sult was to Hide the Chalk. Mr. Wil- liams has the secret hiding place. It would be impossible to break into this safe of steel. But in case you want to give it a try, the chalk can be found in Mr. William ' s left hip pocket! Mortar Boards Arrive Plastering Begins With the arrival of two hundred mortar boards, students of Mize Pok Hi Schule began mixing cement yesterday. This gigantic project is being carried on in order to fill up all the key holes in the buildings. The plan was working well, with splendid cooperation from the students, until, on the third day of work, a seri- ous accident happened to two men. Paul Biggers and John Eddy Hill were plastering the same key hole. They both slipped, and each boy got an eye full of cement. Every one got excited and started flapping his wings. They were rushed to the hospital, but too late. Upon arriving, they discovered the cement had dried and each boy had one cement eye. May this be a lesson to you — stop peeking through Key Holes!

Others tell us that opportunity comes frequently to all — and that an important ingredient for success lies in our ability to recognize oppor- tunity when we see it! The right to own life insurance is an opportunity generally available to youth — But, if not taken advantage of, either the opportunity is lost (by health impairment) or the cost to acquire it becomes greater (premiums increase with age). Your parents, your advisers, your studies — all make you aware that some day (soon!) YOU must own considerable life insurance to help YOU on the road to success in life and in business. Discuss this idea with your parents, and others, if you wish, and then call on us for information as to why OWNING LIFE INSURANCE NOW IS AN UNEQUALLED OPPORTUNITY (for which the cost is less now than it can ever be again! ) Archie B.
