Wmm. -74 . A . I - -r I ' I An MYERS PARK Myers Park High School Charlotte, North Carolina Sally Spratt Editor Gene Carpenter Business Manager Volume 8 Dedicated to . . . Mr. Leslie Browne Miss Gordon Freeman We, the senior doss, broke the tradition of dedi- cating our annual to one person, for we feel there are two people who above all others deserve ap- preciation. With each new annual Miss Gordon Freeman and Mr. Leslie Browne, as yearbook ad- visors, contribute something to our school that is lasting and memorable for the entire student body and especially for the senior class. Miss Freeman spent many hours thinking of captions, writing copy, advising the editorial staff; Mr. Browne, developing pictures, plonning a new ad layout, advising the business staff. To put to- gether what you see in the following pages took many hours outside of si cth period annual class. It took every weekend, most afternoons, many nights. With an encouraging word and quick as- sistance they were always there to help, to do. The ' 59 staff realizes that it could not have put this book out without them. However, their activities have not been limited to their classrooms and annual alone. Each well deserves the nomination for contributions in other fields. In addition to her four English classes and annual Miss Freeman taught a new elective, cre- ative writing, this year. Through her efforts in de- veloping the talent of this class and in advising it, the student body had a new literary magazine, Pegasus. Hi-Y clubs at Myers Park have grown and de- veloped mainly through the efforts of Mr. Browne. This year he advised two of the three clubs, tenth and twelfth grade. He has also served as a past president of the Charlotte, North Carolina Educa- tion Association. In appreciation for dedication to teaching, will- ingness to guide, and giving of time and interest for the betterment of Myers Park, the senior class gratefully dedicates the 1959 Musfang to Miss Gordon Freeman and Mr. Leslie Browne. 6 i I e e s a s 1 c e m e n t s TABLE OF CONTENTS Sports 16 School Spirit Groups 18 Boys ' Sports 20 Coaching Staff 31 Sports Clubs 32 Girls ' Sports 33 Classes and Actirities 36 Administration 38 Faculty 39 Curriculum 44 Classes 50 Clubs to Enrich Learning 100 Service Clubs 104 Instrumental Music 110 Vocal Music 114 Drama 116 Honor Society 117 Mustang 118 MyerSpark 120 Student Congress 122 Features 124 Beauties 126 Senior Honors 130 Junior Marshals 131 Superlatives 132 SPORTS 1 8 i life blend to c r e 3. i e t b e colorful CLASSES and ACTIVITIES FEATURES ! 9 neiu year Stings a reuiual of ! i»g i a i i ffiaf ever-present spirit ffiaf is M.P.H.S. September third brought a new school year, a new beginning; new skills to learn, old ones to master; a time to work, a time to play; ex- periences to share, opportunities to serve; old friends, new ones; excitement, anticipation. For some students, this year was their first at Myers Park; for others, their last. For every- one, it was a year to remember. The first school month, as always, was a busy one of paying fees, getting the first ' Spark, meeting classes, doing perpetual homework, beating Central, electing officers. taking class pictures, holding the first Student Council meeting and the first new senior class meeting. Football games often followed by open houses now took up part of our week- ends. Seniors who had taken part in the AFS program or had attended various conventions and conferences shared their experiences in an assembly. As autumn slipped by, our year fell into a pattern — familiar, traditional, and thrilling. Who will ever forget the impressive Honor Society tapping? Homecoming was dampened only slightly by our loss to the Whirlies. The next week we tied our arch rivals, the Rams, 0-0. College Day brought a sudden realization of the nearness of the future.

With the winter months came a frantic tempo — there were so many things to do: a superior concert by the Music Department, all-important College Boards, wrest- ling and basketball, club .meetings, the eagerly-awaited Christmas Dance, two-hour exams, the close of the old semester and promises brought by a new one, bids for membership in Key Club and Girl Ambassadors, a new literary magazine, Valentines and our King and Queen of Hearts, the yearbook deadline, new class rings for 12 new skills and mastering old ones A cfiance to sfiare expeiiences I 1 I I i Our Vice Pres.

But these years will not escape us; they are captured forever in our memories. D.E. December party i anJ Activities, to win recognition i i I The toss of the coin, the referee ' s signal, the start of the big clock — the 1958-59 Mustangs sports season was off to a fighting start as our football team took the field in their opening game. Cheers of encouragement echo- ed throughout the stadium, expressing the pride in the heart of each loyal Myers Parker. Throughout the year our many teams did not win every game, but they com- piled a record worthy of praise and added to the already well - stocked trophy case. However, this year ' s varied program of athletics brought more than trophies and honors. It developed skills and of- fered an outlet for energy; it developed a feeling of unity and loyalty among the student body. Most important, it gave us a Mustang spirit that no loss could unsettle, that no victory could make boastful. AtfUetics offer a variety of opportunities to grow in skills and sporfsmansfiip. Vivacious cfieerle ders add esi to sports events With an inexhaustible supply of en- ergy, three groups of peppy, school- spirited girls were always down front to lead the fight songs and yells for our teams. The senior high cheerleaders began their practice sessions in the middle of August, and by the opening of school they had revitalized old cheers and added many new ones. In preparation for the many pep rallies they sponsored, these loyal rooters made banners and posters to help spark student enthus- iasm and game attendance. During the football team ' s practice sessions, the girls served cold orange juice to the team and assisted the coaches by typ- LEADERS OF SCHOOL SPIRIT pose in victory " V " .

Nine newly elected J.V. Cheerleaders were another first for Myers Park this year. Elected by the tenth grade, these Jumping Jills designed their own uni- forms and originated their own lively style of cheering. Although Myers Park Junior High consisted of only a ninth grade this year, the Junior High Cheerleaders found their job a big one. In addition to leading the cheering section, they sold programs and booster cards.

Members, selected on the basis of their loyalty, sit together at football and basketball games and form a lively nucleus for the cheering section. Activities of the Mustang Club are guided by the Executive Council made up of the of- ficers, the advisor, and representatives from the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. High- lights of this year ' s club projects were selling pennants and holding a rummage sale. The funds raised were used for decorating the school for pep rallies and for publishing bas- ketball programs. Mr. Cloaninger acted as the club advisor. For that finishing touch, for that extra special dash, the lettergirls and majorettes were always on hand to stage half-time shows during football season and to bear our colors proudly in public appearances with the march- ing band. Each group worked on its own to master marching and drill techniques, and they spent long sessions practicing during sixth period and after school with the band. The majorettes, with the assistance of their advisors, Mrs. Lancaster and Mr. Mims, de- vised many new costumes and routines for half-time shows. Spectators taking a breather in the middle of a tense game were entertain- ed by these girls who assisted the band in intricate marching patterns and precision drill performances. HIGHSTEPPING SCHOOL SPIRIT is their specialty. Nancy Duvall, Head Majorette; Susan Favor, Mary Meade Owens, Rosalind Rollins.

" Tackle by Beaver " was an often heard phrase from the press box as demonstroted here by Hal with an assist by George Cutter. Butch Gallagher, remembered for his 92 yard touchdown sprint against Central, carries the ball. Qnddevs place e g (ltd in sfafc, Stung by graduation losses and playing Triple A for the first year, the Mustangs had a very suc- cessful ' 58 season. In the opening game, the Steeds romped the North Mecklenburg Rebels 21-0, with the stylish quarterbacking of Hal Beaver, an excellent replace- ment for Ray Farris. Sparked by the first win of the season, the Mus- tangs took on the one touchdown-favored Central. In the first few seconds, halfback Butch Gallagher caught the opening kickoff and raced untouched 92 yards for the first score. The jazzed-up eleven did not stop with one touchdown. Hal Beaver ran the option beautifully, and the result was a 28-6 upset over Central. After losing to Salisbury in the worst defeat in two seasons, the Mustangs went on the road to dis- mantle the Burlington Bulldogs. Burlington would not co-operate; they dismantled themselves.

Tommy Blanton replaced Hal Bea- ver at quarterback and connected to Ronnie Moser and Bill Tourtellot for an aerial assault to humble the Bulldogs, 30- 1 2. Although defeated by one point in their en- counter with Asheville, the mighty Mustangs jour- neyed to Gastonia to melt the Green Wave. After Hal Beaver suffered a head injury. Tommy Blan- ton directed the attack with passes to Bob Cordle and to Bill Tourtellot. The final score was 19-14. After losing Homecoming to Greensboro, the meeting of the " upsetters " took place when the Mustangs faced the Harding Rams, a 7-point fa- vorite. The Myers Park gridders came out onto the field fired up and ready to go. Bob Cordle gave the Mustangs their offensive spark but the line was the thing. Stalwarts like John Newitt, Paul Potts, Paul Stork, Richard Scott, Jerry Mitchell, Bill Wallace, and Joe Cox held the game to an exasperating 0-0 tie.

With Hal Beaver playing his best game, scoring eight points (all with his right foot), the Mustangs stomped the Eagles 38-7. Beaver threw passes to ace ends Tourtellot and Moser and to speedy Bob Cordle. Lou Sullivan was a consis- tent ground-gainer and Tommy Blanton churned 85 yards for a punt return. Winding up the 1958 season, the Myers Park Mustangs snowed West Mecklenburg 21-0 with a merciless aerial attack by Tommy Blanton. Horses on the ground attack were Lou Sullivan and Bob Allen. On the All-City teams, Myers Park placed Hal Beaver, Bill Tourtellot, and Bob Cordle.

By midseason the Mustangs had a four-ten win- loss record. In Triple A sports for the first time, the mighty Mustangs faced stronger foes than they had ever faced before. Showing the undamp- ened M.

On the hardwood could be seen such athletes as " Smiling " Richard Barefoot, " Big " Bill Wal- lace, " Spunky " and " Speedy " Robert Parlier and Tommy Blanton, and " Dependable " Wade Black- welder. From the bench, the players could al- ways hear shouts of encouragement and sup- port, like " Get to work, you lazy loafers. " in one of the outstanding games the " fire- house five " defeated the Harding Rams 71- 62. In the game the .Mustangs capitalized on their fast breaks with Tommy Blanton and Robert Parlier turning in outstanding per- formances.

Captained by Mary Anne Buck, the Fillies clocked a total of 254 points, while yielding only 125. After tumbling Charlotte Catholic in the open- ing game of the season, the spirited Myers Parkers wrapped up three more consecutive games, down- ing Harding once and Central twice. Finally in the play-off game for the city championship, the Fillies humbled Harding 37-26 in the Rams ' gym and carried home all honors. Sally McKaig, an outstanding offensive player, scored an average of almost twenty points per game, while her teammates, Joyce Hunter and Pat Sloan, also high scorers, backed her on every play. On the defensive end of the court, Ann Potts, Judy Mathews, and Dagmar Stoll, using a zone tech- nique all their own, held the opponents to a mini- mum scoring total. The combined efforts of the entire team and their coach boosted the Fillies to feats never be- fore accomplished at Myers Park.

There were notes to take in his- tory, unknown " x ' s " to find, ideas to develop into themes, term papers to write, science projects to complete, tests to take, Shake- speare or Chaucer to memorize, foreign lang- uage verbs to conjugate, push-ups to do in gym, parallel material to read. Activities after school taught us knowledge that does not come from books. We develop- ed leadership and initiative as we worked on club projects. We learned co-operation and teamwork as we met newspaper and yearbook deadlines, practiced for plays, and took part in concerts. We learned to think construc- tively as we planned programs and special events. As we view our year in retrospect, we will remember many things, but we will especially remember the times we spent learning to- gether, in our classes as well as in our activi- ties. students divide tfieiv d y between ehssroom anJ sedool etivities. Administration fianJIes year of transition OUR ADMINISTRATION MEMBERS pause for a moment in their busy schedule. Mr. W. S. Adams, Assistant Principal; Dr. Jack Horner, Principal; Mr. Porter Sheppard, Dean of Boys; Miss Frances Gunter, Dean of Girls. Dr. Elmer H. Garinger Superintendent of City Schools For administrators and faculty, 1958-59 was a year of change and progress. Pending the comple- tion of the new Alexander Graham Junior High School, Myers Park housed the new school ' s ninth grade and prepared to become on oil-senior high school. Junior high principal Mr. Frank Motley worked closely with Myers Pork administrators in planning school activities and policies. In spite of the period of transition, the two schools were able to function smoothly. In addition to Myers Park ' s becoming an all- senior high school, an increase in next year ' s en- rollment is also expected because of the expan- sion of our school district. To meet the needs of a larger student body. Dr. Horner and City Super- intendent Dr. Elmer H. Garinger have planned curricula designed to offer as varied an educational program as possible. Mr. W. S. Adams joined the administration as our new assistant principal this year. 38 Myers Par6 to Secome Ml-seniov fiigfi Miss Martha C. Akers Foreign Language Mrs. Emmie H. Alexander English Mr. Stuart B.

Russia and her Sputnik have brought an unparal- led challenge to education, but our foresighted ad- ministration and faculty were not caught unpre- pared. When last spring ' s registration statistics in- dicated a move toward more academic courses, Dr. Horner and the various departments began to plan accordingly. Advanced sections were added in many courses, and the program of electives was broadened. Parallel with the national trend, there was a de- cided increase in the number of students taking math and science courses. Language arts and so- cial studies jumped in enrollment, while there was a slight drop in our dramatic and art programs. There was enough expansion in the business de- partment to warrant adding a new typing instruc- tor. Proud of our school ' s scholastic rating, faculty members worked continuously to strengthen and improve our academic program. In spite of their busy schedules, however, they often found time to enjoy each other ' s company at social events.

Living up to the confidence placed in them, the officers and executive council have been responsi- ble for one of the most successful years in the organization ' s history. Receipts from the annual barbecue totaled an all-time high of $3,246.33. Of this amount 40% went to the athletic fund and 60% remained in the treasury to be used for various P. T. A. -sponsored projects. The barbecue was just one of many projects undertaken by this organization. In October they sponsored the traditional " Back-to-School " for par- ents, and at subsequent meetings they presented programs designed to keep the members informed on current educational trends. Volunteers again staffed the Health Unit, and the House and Grounds Committee provided attractive floral ar- rangements for the S.C. foyer and the student lounge. a gxcditex Myexs Par6 Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Efird were two of the parents who gave so graciously of their time at the onnuol borbeque.

Science And nriAtfi tA e IcaJ in Age of Sputnik For the first year, we had advanced biology and physics sections. Seven hundred fifty-five students took natural science courses in either biology, chem- istry, or physics, which was taught by a new fa culty member, Mr. McClosky. Forty students planned and made science projects, biological or physical, for the Science Fair. Several entrarits won the right to take displays to the district fair and hoped that they might go on to the state and national fairs as other students from our school have done in recent years. Although all of us did not have particularly out- standing ability in science, we were still able to en- joy the satisfaction of completing successful experi- ments in chemistry or of recognizing all the leaves in our collections for biology. We knew that we had BIOLOGY STUDENTS Nancy Stokes, Dickie Sidbury, and Gus Anastes look for xylem and phloem. Janie Moeller, Mike Carrier, Phil Gietzen, and Hughes Hoyle discuss the geometric figures they use in solid geometry. accomplished that which science really means — knowledge. Adding a teacher to last year ' s number, we were able to increase the mathematics department so that 1353 student-hours were taken in this field. Two new faculty members, Mr. Kiser, who teaches geometry, and Miss Whitley, who teaches geometry and trigo- nometry, joined the staff. Preparing for college, 90 ambitious students took college alaebra and 76 struggled through solid ge- ometry and trigonometry. Fifty-two seniors took senior math to obtain a bread over-view of many maths. 44 Gnglisfi nd foreign language dep ittmenis expanded All phases of our language program were expand- ed this year — the number of teachers, the facilities, the student interest. New English teachers were Miss Aycock, Miss Brice, and Mr. Sizer, while Miss Foster joined the Spanish Department. Increased interest in language courses brought about the addition of a third-year Latin class; third- year French and Spanish were continued. In addition to the regular required English courses, students en- rolled in journalism, creative writing, and world litera- ture. Public speaking and dramatics were courses of- fered by the Drama Department. Advancement in our language department this year was evident in the high scores which students made on the California Reading Test, the Senior Co- operative English Test, and the English Composition Achievement Test of College Boards. Special recogni- tion went to Mary Martha Lander, Billy Guion, Rich- ard Barefoot, Susan Stephenson, and Trey Snepp, who participated in the Reader ' s Digest " Teen Top- Ten Project. " Their reviews of articles which appeared in the February issue are evidence of M.P. ' s outstand- ing Language Arts Department. Miss Newland discusses selection of display material for Eng- lish literature with Bo Willard and Donna Kelleher. Miss Martha Akers helps Richard Scott perfect his pronucia- tion, while Ellen Frye and Myra Sides await their turn to read aloud. At the annual Language Festival Marjorie Rehm, her par- ents and Laura Kissiah discuss Christmas customs with Susan Brenells from Wales. Mr. Feimster ' s world history students make use of bulletin boards and maps to understand the influence of ancient cultures. Through debates, class discussions, guest speak- ers, films, and T.V., 898 students learned to under stand present world situations through a study of the past. Problems of American Democracy, which was added this year as a senior elective, proved to be most enjoyable. World history also became a television course. Mrs. Carolyn Good joined the department as a world history teacher. lUorlci understandinq qrows tnrougn study of tfie past Cynthia Baker, Judy Allen, Kirby McCormick, Agnes Binder, and Joan Pierce listen attentively as Mrs. Winningham from Charlotte College lectures on foreign affairs. Chuck Klotzberger, Bill Cowan and George Hawes find Mrs. Macon ' s bulletin board on slave trade especially interesting. In addition to our program of required courses, there is o wide choice of electives offered to students at Myers Pork. These electives may foil in the realm of academic courses, or they may be courses designed to develop certain skills. World literature offers students an opportunity to study classical literary forms. Creative talents can be developed in creative writing, art, journalism, dramatics, or our vast music program. Technical courses available include industrial arts, mechanical drawing, and home arts. Our commercial arts and Distributive Education programs enable many stu- dents to enter the business world immediately upon graduation. Other valuable courses include Bible, driver ' s education, public speaking, library science, and psychology. New faculty members who taught elective courses were Miss Petteway, art; Mr. Cloaninger, typing; and Mr. Mims, instrumental music. Mr. Adams, our new assistant principal, taught psychology. Whatever their purpose, elective subjects afford students an opportunity to broaden their outlook and to balance their educational program. Mr. Booth offers Tommy Meochom a suggestion concerning his drawing. Students round out programs witd a uariofy of electives Mrs. Alexander ' s world literature class enjoys sompling varied literary Patricio Cook, Jane Charnley, and Patty Garrison works. prepare Spanish rice in their foods class. Srequent tests and periodic reports checR progress Hardly a day passes by without a scheduled test or a diabolical " pop quiz " to be met. On Monday we may be tested on science or driver education; on Tuesday, social studies. Wed- nesdays mean we have to bone up on English or be prepared to perform in home economics or industrial arts. Foreign languages and art face us on Thursday; while mathematics, busi- ness subjects, and physical education trip us up on Friday. A " pop quiz " always seems to come on the days we are least prepared. This year we renewed the practice of two- hour semester examinations. Who will ever forget the " cramming " sessions, the anguish, or the feeling of satisfaction when they were over? Report cards, which appear every nine weeks, are inevitable and irrevocable. We greet these small white cards with a variety of emotions, yet we know they, along with tests and examinations are necssary meas- ures of our scholastic performance. Linda Shields, Pony Jones, and Carole Beasley complete their study of Julius Caesar with a unit test Robbie Gantt, Pam Guthrie, Carole Lane, David Shelton, Tom Crayton, Harry McArver, and Wayne Martin are evidently pleased with their report cards. College Day ansiuers seniors ' questions M ny win scfiolarsfiips November fifth was an informative one for seniors, who were able to gain a comprehen- sive view of the classes, facilities, activities of several colleges or universities. One of the best features of this program included a free period in which each student could revisit representatives of a favored school or explore new ones. Representatives came from schools as far away as Wellesley and from as close as Char- lotte College and ranged in size from the small private schools to U.N.C. This was the first year Ivy League schools were represented, and many showed interest in Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Wellesley. Later in the year many seniors received scholarships from the colleges whose repre- sentatives came to college day.

Secretary Treasurer Looking back, we see our whole year passing before us — our last and best at Myers Park. We remember our last first day in high school. We re- member with gladness at passing a milestone, with sadness at leaving something behind. But there were new learning experiences for us in world literature, trigonometry, problems of de- mocracy, and, of course, senior English. We were proud of our class ' s intellectual achievements, our scholarship finalists, our A.F.S. representative. On College Day many of us made our final decision on which school to attend. Then came College Boards — this time so much depended on those grades. We frantically filled out last-minute appli- cations, mailed them just in time, and waited anx- iously for replies.

Our senior committee chairmen worked hard plan- ning social activities and our all-important gradua- tion. We elected class day officers to write the class documents. We elected superlatives, beauties, graduation speakers — always we seemed to be vot- ing on someone or something. Our foreign ex- change students helped us to understand that peo- ple the world over are basically the same. Members of our class took the lead in all clubs and extra-curricular activities — acting in plays, writing the follies, editing school publications, heading clubs. Yes, we look back — with joy at graduating and regret at leaving. Class day officers prepare for writing of class documents.

YARBROUGH YOUNT New rings, College Boards, the Junior-Senior — what memories we have to cherish. Our year has been characterized by outstanding achievements in all fields. From our class four can- didates were selected to compete in the American Field Service program. We placed members on all varsity sports teams. In drama, debating, writing, our class was well represented. But most of the year we seemed to be in the midst of plans for the Junior-Senior. Individual homerooms held money-raising projects to raise money for this event.

College Boards loomed ahead. Although these grades would not really count, we early began to buy books resolving to study every night. How many kept those resolutions? With all these other activities, we still devoted much time to study. In the spring members of our class were inducted into the Honor Society. Many of us rated highly on nationally conducted tests. We watched American history on T. V., became proficient in languages, read Emerson and Thoreau. Then at graduation our top students servea as Junior Marshals. We looked back at our carefree underclass days — forward to our senior year. A.F.S.

We began the year by electing as our officers four students who were already experienced in school government. They led the class in planning an informal dance held soon after the beginning of the new year. Members of our class excelled in holding offices in school clubs and in playing on Jayvee ond varsity teams. Nine of our girls be- came Myers Park ' s first Jayvee cheerleaders. In the classroom we delved further into the mysteries of algebra and Latin. We were intro- duced for the first time to Tillie Tapeworm and Freddie Frog. Our knowledge of world history came to us via air waves through television. Now we look forward to another year of ac- complishment.

Though the youngest group here, we made our presence felt in school activities. Members of our class led the Junior High Honor Society and Ninth Grade Y-teens, par- ticipated in junior high sports, and were active in various school clubs. During the year we held two dances which were very successful. Our teachers introduced us to career opportunities through civics, to the stars through general science, to people on the other side of the Atlantic through foreign languages. New areas of knowledge were shown us. For the first time we began to think of our futures.

Latin Club members presented many skits on Roman life which helped them to understand daily customs and traditions of ancient Rome. By playing vari- ous teaching games at their meetings, they earned more about grammar of the language. French and Spanish Club members also in- creased their appreciation of their language courses through skits, scenes from classical plays, songs, games, and lectures on the customs of France, Spain, and Latin American countries.

Tradi- tional carols, the story of the Nativity, and talks on Christmas celebrations in other countries were presented by the groups. Susan Brennels, our exchange student from Wales, told how the customs in her country differ from ours.

" One of the most active groups on campus this year has been the Myers Park chapter of the Dis- tributive Education Club of America, known also as DECA. The D.E. program provides an invaluable public service in preparing young people for their role in the business world. Students receive both class- room and on-the-job training in a carefully planned course of study. This organization won many group as well as individual honors. President Barbara Burr was elected secretary-treasurer of the Western District Convention and for the second year won first place in the job interview contest. This win made her eligible for the state contest held in Greensboro in March. At the District Convention the club ' s scrap- book took high honors. The D.E. Club projects included " Enlisted Pro- grams " to help students obtain jobs, a special eight-day course in selling, open to all students interested in obtaining part-time employment, and the adoption of a needy family at Christmastime. Highlighting the year was D.E. Week held in February. In co-operation with the Charlotte Merchants ' Association, the club sponsored pro- grams on radio and TV and gave speeches at school to let the public know just what the D.E. program is. The climax of the special week was an Em- ployee-Employer Banquet. Mr. George Ivey was the guest speaker. Mrs. Burgess is D.E. co-ordinator. D.E. EXECUTIVE COUNCIL plans future events.

Students interested in teaching, homemaking, or engineering as a possible vocation furthered their knowledge and understanding of these areas through membership in Future Teachers of America, Future Homemakers of America, and Engineers ' Club. At their monthly and bi-monthly meetings, these groups enjoyed guest speakers and programs of student participation. The Future Teachers attended the state conven- tion at Wake Forest, renewed the practice of Visitation Day in the city schools, and co-spon- sored Teacher Appreciation Day. Highlights of the Future Homemakers Club included taking part in the Betty Crocker Contest and participating in a fashion show conducted by the Simplicity Pattern Company. Field trips played an important part in the activi- ties of the Engineers ' Club. They toured Charlotte Pipe and Foundry Company and the Lithium Cor- poration of America Plant at Bessemer City. For their main project they sponsored a local science fair. Advisors for the groups were Miss Brice and Mr. Snyder, F T. A.; Mrs. Lyeriy, F.H.A.; and Mr. Mc- Closky, Engineers ' Club.

Another fine record of worthwhile services has been compiled, ranging from the making and selling of tassels for football games to soliciting funds for the " March of Dimes. " The year began with the staging of the annual New Girls ' Tea to acquaint students with the organization of the Ambassadors, and was followed closely by the club ' s first money- making project, a carwash. During the Yuletide season, the Ambassadors combined service and pleasure with the donation of a Christmas tree decorated with candy canes to the Alexander Home, and a Christmas-Carol- Spend-the-Night party for club members, held at Becky Cannaday ' s house. School projects have included: the decoration of the student lounge for " Beat Harding Week, " the presentation of a buffet Thanksgiving dinner for the teachers and school staff with accompany- ing entertainment by Carole Slaughter, Darst Murphy, Donna Woodside, Betsy Glenn, Margaret Whitton, Cynthia Baker, and Judy Mathews, and the selling of ads to aid the Mustang.

Seventy-five students combined their musical talent to form our orchestra, which gave three concerts for the enjoyment of our student body. At the Christmas assembly, which has become a tradition at Myers Park, the orchestra accom- panied the choir in Handel ' s Messiah. Also on the agenda of this year ' s activities were concerts for various organizations in Charlotte, a performance for the PTA and several out-of-town trips. Under the capable leadership of Mr. Spencer Mims, who is in his first year as director of the instrumental music department, the orchestra con- tinued to represent Myers Park in the highest standards. In the state music contest, the orchestra again received a high rating for its musical ability. Steve Abrams, Kaye Blickensderfer, David Pfohl, Mary Stewart Rosenblatt, Ronnie Sikor, David Swyers, Jimmy Weber, and Alice Wheeler were Myers Park ' s outstanding representatives to the All-State Orchestra in November at Greensboro. 3l wless performance is aim of IN CONCERT DRESS the orchestra takes time out for pic- ture.

Under the able direction of Mr. Spencer Mims, our bond has made many successful appearances this year. In addition to the sparkling half-time shows presented throughout football season, the group performed in the Armistice Day and Car- rousel parades. In the field of civic service, the musicians en- tertained at a hockey game and the nationally televised University of North Carolina-Notre Dame basketball game. Outstanding members Curtis Hardy, Mary Mead Owens, Ben Gravely, Ernest Holdredge, Pat Vaughn, Jack Stallings, Deems Wilson, and David Swyers were selected to participate in the All-State Band in Gastonia.

These four groups made numerous public appearances, ranging from their traditional presentation of Handel ' s Messiah during Christmas to concerts at local churches and before civic groups. One of the most enjoyable experiences the choir had was " singing for their supper " at the S W just before the holidays.

Myers Park can be justly proud of the growth of the vocal music program at our school. Eight years ago, the first concert was presented from the library balcony by sixteen members of the mixed chorus. From such a small beginning the group has expanded to a very large group and has become widely known for the quality of their performances. BOYS ' OCTET MEMBERS PRACTICE for per- fection.

The first dramatic production of the year, " Time Out for Ginger, " was held November 21-22 at Myers Park Elementary School and was well re- ceived. During the Christmas holidays everyone who had worked on the play and other club mem- bers enjoyed themselves at an informal Yuletide party. In February the dramatists presented four one- act plays, " Three On a Bench, " " Concert in the Park, " " Escape by Moonlight, " and " Indian Sum- mer, " to the student body. Toward the latter part of the year, these plays were presented again at the Drama Festival in Chapel Hill. To remain a member of the Limelighters each person earned a minimum of fifteen points per semester, receiving one point for each hour ' s work. Because of the diligent efforts of their new advisor, Miss Mclnnes, and President Jean Fuller- ton, the drama department of Myers Park is one of which we can be proud. DRAMA Ot-FICERS check scripts.

Honor Society fias year of innovations This year brought many changes for the Myers Park Chapter of the National Honor Society. Under the leadership of its officers and advisors, Miss Moore and Miss Sprinkle, they formed a new scrap- book committee, purchased as a gift to the school, new regalia for induction ceremonies, and placed an Honor Society plaque in the Student Center. In late January, a debating club was formed by the Honor Society. However, membership was open to all students of Myers Park. Members Anne Stratton, Becky Cannady, Louise Habicht, and Margaret Taylor attended the Debate Workshop at Wake Forest last July to learn techniques of debating in anticipation of a debating club. All of the year was not change, however. The traditional tapping remained the same. Once again members acted as guides for college representa- tives on College Day. Louise Habicht, Curtis Hardy, Anne Lobdell, and Larry Spicer were finalists for the National Honor Society Scholarship. Membership in the Junior High Honor Society is based on the same qualifications as the Senior High: scholarship, leadership, character, and serv- ice. The first five percent was taken in last spring. This February, twenty-six more members were taken into the junior high group. TOP FIVE PERCENT of the ninth grade.

On the night of May 21, at the Senior class banquet, the 1959 Mustang was dedicated and dis- tributed to the Seniors. The following day the underclassmen received their copies and shrieks of " Did you see my picture? " echoed throughout the school. Especially proud of their finished product was the annual staff. Of course, each member knew that without the constant prodding of Sally Spratt, Editor, and Miss Freeman and Mr. Browne, Ad- visors, the Mustang would not have been possible.

For the second consecutive year, the Mustang received a First Place award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in competition with ether high school annuals in the nation. In No- vember, the staff sent delegates to the North Carolina Scholastic Press Association convention in Chapel Hill where Dick Ranson, a Myers Park junior, was elected state president succeeding re- tiring president Spike Spigener, also a Mustang staffer. Our sponsors were elected state annual advisors. A new printing process, lithography, allowed the staff greater freedom of design and made possible a type of ad never offered before.

Co-Editors Darsf Murphy and Atkins Carson spent many long hours after school and on Saturdays with their staff working on the ' 58- ' 59 issues of the Myer- Spark. Their perserverance paid off, for this year ' s ' Spark has been the best ever. Subscription sales, which lagged considerably be- hind expectations during the first few weeks of the drive, were given a considerable boost by the loyal efforts of the Key Club and several other M. P. or- ganizations. Mr. Richard Sizer, new to both the school and the ' Spark, replaced Mrs. Harriet Taylor as advisor. His " newness " soon wore off, however, and he was of great help to the staff in giving suggestions for im- provement and stimulating the practice of good jour- nalism among the staff members. This year ' s news, features, and sports staffs com- bined efforts to produce large quantities of copy, which were rewritten, edited, and proofread before appearing on the pages of the publication. Joe Cald- well, staff photographer for the second year, once again provided the clear, well composed pictures which are so vital in the appearance of a paper. Spar is ide voice of ide students LOOKING OVER a past issue are: Johnny Allen, Assistant Feature Editor; Margaret Taylor, Exchange Editor; Judy Adams, Copy Editor; Sheila Welch, News Editor. A familiar sound around the " Spark " room was the Advertising Manager, Bess Forshaw, spurring the ad- vertising staff on to sell more ads. " Please ... we need twenty-five more inches by tomorrow! " And Trey Snepp forever saying, " No Bess! We cannot put any more ads on the sports page! Darst . . . At- kins . . . say she can ' t. " With the copy, ads, and pictures turned in, the job was still not done. Headlines had to be written, make-ups planned. Occasionally room had to be made for an important, late-breaking story. After hours of hard work, the staff ' s paper could at last " go to press. " It was not all work, though — the litter of empty coke bottles, the mock " insults " scribbled on the large sheet of poster paper on the L A. 9 door, the Christmas tree on top of the inter-com box, and the late afternoon trades of tangerines and fruitcake with the annual staff, will all be remembered as part of the experience of publishing the school paper.

Special events, awards and honors, senior superlatives — these were the highlights of our year. Exceptional ability, talent, faithfulness and devotion to one ' s school combine themselves in a few people to set them apart for special recognition. Oftentimes it was difficult to make a choice, because we had so many out- standing candidates. In other instances, the choice was an obvious one because of a per- son ' s particularly superior qualities. We shall long remember the secret ballots, the breath- taking suspense as we awaited the results of the final balloting, and finally, the joy we shared with the recipitents. Homecoming and the Christmas and Val- entine Dances are equally important in our thoughts of this year. Will we ever forget the downpour we sat through at Homecoming or the snow we watched and waited for at the Christmas Dance? And at the Valentine Dance only two months later, an early touch of spring made it possible for us to dance on the terrace. The people and events featured in these pages are perhaps among our most cherished memories of this year. recognition are fiigdUgfits of year T Miss Kaye Blickensderfer Junior Beauty Miss Nancy Rouzer Sophomore Beauty With best wishes, Mary Ann Mobley Miss America 1959 1 28 Miss Casey Sherrill Freshman Beauty I Geri McDonald, Mopsy Grayson, Shelia Duncan, and Edith Harrison — 1958 Homecoming attendants.

The Spring Fling climaxed School Spirit Week and an enthusiastic battle for the titles of Daisy Mae and Li ' l Abner. We enjoyed Till There Was You, the best senior follies ever presented. Slaves became a familiar sight during Latin Week. Hard-work- ing GRA members received awards at on all-girl assembly; drama enthusiasts showed ability in Dial M tor Murder. The Junior-Senior, Out of this World, ended months of secrets. Many clubs held banquets to climax the busy year. Elections were now the foremost question on everyone ' s mind; campaign posters covered the campus as en- thusiasm built up.

Bob Cordle, Hal Beaver, and I Perry Turnipseed. Richards, a three-year veteran who batted .351 for this year ' s highest average, js was selected to the All-State Baseball team at | first base. He was voted the Most Valuable play- ' er; and Goody Thomas, catcher, the Most Im- proved player. Hitting an average of .270 this season were Bob Cordle, second base; Robert Parlier, left field; and George Chapman, right field. Pitchers Hal Beaver and Tommy Austin had a 5-5 and a 3-3 win-loss record.

The highlight of the state meet, held in Raleigh, was Eddie West ' s record-breaking mile time of 4:25.0, breaking by three seconds the old mark set last year by Mustang graduate David Gilmour. Other first places were grabbed by Tom Stockton in the 880, by Bill Houston in the 100- and 220-yard dashes, and by the mile relay team. Houston, captain and high point man, who won the Stenhouse Trophy, was elected the most val- uable player and was named by Coach Allen as the best track man in the history of Myers Park. Although weak in the field events, the Mus- tangs received pleasant surprises from the state meet performances of Bob Cordle in the broad jump, Richard Barefoot in the high jump, and Dickie Lee in the high hurdles. The Mustangs swept all relays and edged a strong Durham High team to win the biggest meet of the year, the Duke-Durham Relay, for the second consecutive year. Bill Houston, Bob Cordle, Rich Harris, and Bob Allen ran in three of the winning relays. This outstanding record speaks for itself and establishes Myers Park as the track power of the state.

The next week we struggled through exams. Then it was time for Baccalaure- ate at 5:00, May 31. With an odd mixture of gaiety and sadness, we lined up in front of First Methodist, then filed in solemnly as the proces- sional sounded. The Reverend James E. Fogartie challenged us, " Which will you choose — things or life? " Leaving the church, we knew that no longer was graduation a dream; it was a reality. Class advisor Miss Evangeline Stewart and Dr. Jack Horner keep graduation exercises running smoothly. At 5:00 on Baccalaureate Sunday seniors begin first steps toward graduation.
